Dale Jr. Out Next Two Races With Concussion
We hear a lot of talk these days about concussions in football but now that medical condition has affected NASCAR. According to Hendrick Motorsports Dale Earnhardt Junior will miss the next two races in the Chase For the Cup Series because of a concussion he suffered during last Sunday’s 25-car pileup at Talladega. This isn’t Junior’s first brush with a concussion..
This is Earnhart’s second concussion. He suffered one back in 2002 during a major wreck in California, but hid it from NASCAR and his team for fear of being removed from the car. It’s good, for his future, that he came forward on this one.
Needless to say this will end his chances for a championship but, hopefully, he will be treated will all due care and be back on the track in the near future.
