Second concussion in five weeks sidelines Earnhardt

Most of the conversation the past week has been about the announcement that Dale Jr. suffered his second concussion in five weeks in the 25-car accident on the last lap at Talladega.  The initial decision was that Dale Jr. would sit out  at least the America 500 at Charlotte and this Sunday’s race at Kansas .  Last Thursday in Charlotte Dale Earnhardt Jr., team owner Rick Hendrick, and Dr. Jerry Petty met with the media.  The following has been excerpted from that press conference.

Kenseth survives “Big One” for Talladega win

Last Sunday’s Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 was very much a four-wheeled version of the Alabama Lottery in which any one of the 43 starting drivers was a potential winner. And for 12 of them,  qualifiers for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, it’s the “wild card” event of the 10-race post season.

Matt Kenseth escaped perhaps the biggest and baddest, “Big One” since the speedway opened in 1969.  The pileup occurred on the 4th turn of the final lap of the race and was triggered by Tony Stewart’s Chevrolet pulling down in front of Michael Waltrip’s Toyota.  Waltrip, unable to avoid running into Stewart, sent Stewart sliding into the higher groove of oncoming traffic.  From that point on it was complete chaos. In a post race interview, Stewart accepted responsibility for triggering the wreck.
