That could be in Carl Edwards' case, that he doesn't care.  It's very strange, retiring for no reason. I still wonder if he is ill and doesn't want to say or something.  I just said prime of his career because he had a very good racing season last year; not because he was a certain age.  I think the peak of a NASCAR racer's career could actually be when they are in their 20's  :banghead:   or they could be successful in their 40's; it just depends on the individual person and their training and experience.

It's weird to hear people talk about someone that drives a car as being in their prime.
Not as weird as to hear people not able to comprehend it.
how is a 37 year old in their prime as a driver versus a 27 or 47 year old exactly?
Apply that question to any athletic endeavor and answer it yourself.

Someone can't decide risking their life every week is no longer worth the rewards?

Delusional. Proof...Every athlete ever.
