NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. signs deal with NBC

Retiring NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. just inked a multi-year deal with NBC Universal.

Sports Business Daily reports the driver will work on several NASCAR platforms as well as other sports next season.

Earnhardt has worked for both Fox Sports and NBC in the past when he couldn't race because of concussion symptoms.

He announced his retirement in April and has yet to finish first in a race this year. Team owner Rick Hendrick announced that Alex Bowman will drive as Earnhardt's replacement in the number 88 Chevrolet car next season.
