Ty Dillon said Friday in a video on his Instagram story that he is not retiring and plans to be racing “for many, many years.”

Dillon’s contract with Germain Racing goes through the 2020 season.

In the video he posted Friday, Dillon said:

“Everybody is saying that I’m going to retire at the end of 2020, which couldn’t be more false. I plan on racing for many, many years. I don’t know where it came from, but to hear it from my mouth, I’m not retiring, and I plan on winning races and championships for many years.”

The 27-year-old Dillon has a best finish of fourth this year. He ranks 24th in the points. This is his third full season in Cup. He has been with Germain Racing for each of those seasons.
