Will Dale Earnhardt Jr. return? And if he doesn't, who will be the face of NASCAR?

August 26, 2016

When will Dale Earnhardt Jr. return to competition behind the wheel of the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet?

Should he try to come back this year, wait until next year or retire altogether?

Thursday night on NASCAR Race Hub, Danielle Trotta, Jeff Hammond, Andy Petree and Adam Alexander tackled these questions and fans weighed in through Connect Live, part of the FS1 NASCAR 360 coverage.

"There's so much stuff going on within the sport," said Hammond. "We're trying to sign a new title sponsor for NASCAR, and they're wondering if Dale Jr. will be involved or not.  Where do we really go here because he is an icon in this sport? If he isn't there, who's going to be the face of NASCAR now?"
