Tuesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, where he unveiled his throwback paint scheme for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, Dale Earnhardt Jr. talked about his 2018 plans.

Earnhardt, who is in his final season as a full-time driver, is contracted to drive two NASCAR XFINITY Series races next year with the JR Motorsports team he co-owns with sister Kelley Earnhardt Miller.

Along with those two races, Earnhardt allowed that he’d like to run as many as five or six XFINITY races if sponsors would come on board to make it possible.

During the unveiling at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Earnhardt was asked about running in next year’s Advance Auto Parts Clash, the first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race during Daytona Speedweeks.

Earnhardt responded that he was talking with his wife, Amy, about the possibility.

Well, Tuesday night, Amy Earnhardt weighed in on Twitter and the answer was pretty clear-cut. Sorry, JR Nation.
