Dale Jarrett says he will end his racing career at Lowe's Motor Speedway in May at the All-Star race.
The same track is where he was in a late-model sportsman wreck in 1980 that shattered his ankle and nearly ended his driving career.
Jarrett embarked on a 24-year career in NASCAR's top series, where he won the 1999 points championship, three Daytona 500s and collected 32 wins.
Jarrett decided to run only the first five points races this year, finishing 37th on Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway. But he wanted to end things where his career got off to a rocky start.
The 51-year-old Jarrett becomes a full-time racing analyst for ESPN later this year. He will be honored on All-Star weekend May 17-18 and inducted into the track's court of legends with his father.
