NASCAR Legend Dale Jarrett Has Tested Positive for COVID-19, “I’ve been one of the very fortunate ones”

NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett announced Tuesday he has tested positive for COVID-19 and now is in quarantine.

“Last week I tested positive for the coronavirus, but I’m doing great,” Jarrett told Krista Voda on NBCSN’s NASCAR America show.

“I’ve been one of the very fortunate ones, in that my symptom is only a slight cough through all of this, and it’s really getting less and less every day. So, I’m doing really well,” he says.

Jarrett went on to interview Dale Earnhardt, Jr. about making it into the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Tuesday saying, “There’s one person out smiling everybody else up there (in Heaven) right now, and that’s your dad.”
