    I don't think he's 'tired of racing' per se, I think there's something(s) more than just wanting to do something different.

    - family issues (which he will not divulge and I can respect that)
    - issues with NASCAR
    - Mental health concern/personal development concern (social-emotional)

    He really does seem troubled about something....not sure what, but the way he is giving somewhat rambling responses, having to stop and start again due to thinking, and dodging around some of the questions, it just comes off as somewhat odd having known Carl since he was first driving in the Craftsman Truck Series all of those years ago and seeing him sort of wander all over the place with his answers. Something bigger is going on, but that will be up to Carl to decide if he ever wishes to tell us (which most likely never happen, due to his mostly private nature).

    He mainly seems in disbelief, like of all people he didn't even think himself it would be Carl Edwards.

    I agree with what everyone else is suggesting. I'm not buying it. When jeff, tony, and others retired they were very committed about the decision, they were done and the sold it physically(in how they acted) and with their words(because they had fully made up their minds and it was their decision). Mark Martin left the door open very much like Carl is doing right now. We all know how that worked out.

    Seriously what the hell is happening? I atleast want to hear Carl is confident in what direction he's headed. This has not helped...

    I don't know about anyone else but when Carl started to get choked up it actually started to get me a little, I've been a fan of his for as long as I can remember. Meeting him was one of the greatest things, best all around guy to walk the garage.

    That's not what I heard at all... He does "want" to retire (I mean, in a way, he must still be torn about it), but it's still unclear why. My big question is where is he going after this? He's 37 years old, he's clearly not ready to retire from everything. He just seems to have no obvious direction, at least not that he's disclosed. It still doesn't fully make sense.

    I'm ashamed to be "related" to some of these so called "FANS" of the sport. Absolute ignorant, racist bastards.

    It's NASCAR fans on social media. Of course they would be massive jerks on social media, complaining anything and just everything...
