CONCORD, N.C., May 15 (UPI) -- Veteran driver Dale Jarrett makes his final NASCAR appearance Saturday night at the Sprint Cup Showdown in Concord, N.C.

It will be his 17th start at the all-star event.

He has competed in it every year since 1992.

"This is a race for the fans and it's a great way for me to say thank you to them for the career they've allowed me to have," he said in a release. "After really looking over the schedule, there are a couple of tracks or races that stand out as ones where you'd like to run your last race. Obviously, the Coca-Cola 600, also in Concord, came to mind (and) I looked at Indianapolis."

Heading into his final event, Jarrett's Sprint Cup career includes 32 wins, 163 top fives, 260 top 10s and 16 pole positions.
