“Amy and I want to thank everyone who has lifted us up with phone calls, messages and prayer since last Thursday. We are truly blessed that all on board escaped with no serious injuries, including our daughter, our two pilots and our dog Gus,” Earnhardt wrote on Monday.

He added, “With respect to the investigation, we will not be speculating or discussing the cause of the accident. I am thankful for the quick response of my pilots, local law enforcement, emergency personnel and hospital staff.”

The 44-year-old also said he appreciated the privacy extended to his family “to process everything.”

The former driver of car No. 88 is expected to return to the broadcast booth Labor Day weekend, when NASCAR’s premier series returns to Darlington, S.C. for the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
