Swindell retires

After four decades of racing, three-time World of Outlaws champion Sammy Swindell has announced that he is retiring from full-time racing, effective immediately.

In a statement, Swindell indicated that he would like to continue driving in the prestigious Chili Bowl Nationals but wanted more time to be with his son, Kevin, as he competes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

"Part of the reason for the timing now is I've spent the last two weekends with my son, Kevin, racing," the elder Swindell said. "I haven’t had any time to spend with his racing the last four years. He will drive a Nationwide car for the rest of the year and I want to be there to support him."
