Earnhardt’s return to NASCAR could take more time

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Dale Earnhardt Jr. warned Monday his return to NASCAR could take longer than planned.

    NASCAR’s most popular driver is scheduled to miss his third consecutive race this Sunday with concussion-like symptoms. On his weekly podcast, he said he will have another evaluation “soon” to see “what kind of gains we’ve made and get in front of my doctors and let them tell me where they think I’m at and that will help us make the decision on what we’re going to do for Watkins Glen.”

Jeff Gordon came out of retirement to drive for Earnhardt on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Gordon will race again this weekend at Pocono. No decision has been made by Hendrick Motorsports about next month’s race at Watkins Glen.
