Earnhardt Cleared By Doctors To Race Again

By Jim McCoy Tue 23rd October SportsDale Earnhardt Jr.NASCAR
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been cleared to race this Sunday at Martinsville Speedway. Earnhardt missed two races because of two concussions suffered in a six-week span. He was cleared Tuesday to resume racing by neurosurgeon Dr. Jerry Petty. The visit to Petty came a day after Earnhardt tested a car at Gresham Speedway in Georgia to see how he felt behind the wheel. Petty sidelined NASCAR's most popular driver when Earnhardt went to see the doctor complaining of a lingering headache following a 25-car accident on the last lap of the Oct. 7 race at Talladega. Petty diagnosed Earnhardt with a concussion, and said Earnhardt also suffered one in an Aug. 29 crash during a tire test at Kansas that went untreated.
