At right time?

The decent (and "right") thing to do was retire after killing Ward.

Not keep embarrassing himself for a couple more years.

Guess no one has ever accused Smoke of being smart. Remember, he tried to race immediately after killing Ward (he announced he would) but they finally prevented him.

I agree he should hang it up now.   Not because of the ward incident, just because obviously he isn't competitive for a HOF driver and it's not just a down year it's much more than that.  Guess he wants a going away tour or didn't want to rain on the Gordon retirement.  Who knows

no excuse for continuing to drive after the Ward incident

either he tried to hit him (whether he intended to kill him or not isn't the point), which is most likely, in which case he shouldn't be allowed to race

or he was not trying to hit him and because he has vision/driving problems he hit him, in which case he shouldn't be allowed to race

NASCAR dropped the ball big time

that ties right into it though

if smoke was actually being honest and didn't intend to hit him, that means he has no business being on a racetrack because he flat out sucks

he continues to prove that each week

top equipment/team and it's a miracle if he finishes top 20/on lead lap

and his announcement was that he'll retire in a year? LOL

how about retiring RIGHT NOW and let someone who can drive use the car?

Has to be career worst BY fAR.   Maybe rookie season was bad but doubt even it was this bad
