    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. will miss the rest of the NASCAR season -- 18 races total -- as he continues to recover from a concussion.NASCARs most popular driver first began experiencing concussion-like symptoms in late July. He has been undergoing treatment from Dr. Micky Collins at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program. Hes also being treated by Charlotte neurosurgeon Dr. Jerry Petty.To say Im disappointed doesnt begin to describe how I feel, but I know this is the right thing for my long-term health and career, Earnhardt said in a statement Friday. Im 100 percent focused on my recovery, and I will continue to follow everything the doctors tell me.Earnhardt said doctors have seen progress in his recovery, and he plans to be back in the car next February for the season-opening Daytona 500.Joey Logano said he understands how difficult this choice was to make for Earnhardt.I look up to him for what hes doing. I know how hard that is to look out and want to be inside that racecar, Logano said. Your life and your health is not worth risking for the sport.Elliott Sadler, who drives for Earnhardts Xfinity program, said he had mixed feelings about his friends absence. He knows how desperately Earnhardt wanted to return this season.The flip side is Im happy and proud of him to take a step back and get everything in line from the medical side, Sadler said.Jeff Gordon and Alex Bowman will continue to share seat time in the No. 88 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports. Gordon will drive four races, including Sunday at Darlington Raceway for the Southern 500, as well as Richmond, Dover and Martinsville. Bowman will finish the year with eight more starts.Jeff and Alex will give us a great opportunity over the rest of the season, team owner Rick Hendrick said. Jeff is one of the best of all time and knows our system. He brings things to the table that no one else can. Alex is a young driver with a lot of talent, and he will give us a fresh perspective. We know theyre not only capable of running up front and giving us a chance to win, but theyll help us get better.Jamie McMurray said those in the Sprint Cup garage miss having Earnhardt around, but the sport will continue to thrive no matter how long he may be out.You dont show up at the track for two or three weeks, not that youre forgotten, but its crazy how things move on, he said.Earnhardt has struggled with concussions before, including the 2012 season when he missed two races after suffering a pair of concussions over a six-week span.NASCAR has been updating its focus on concussions and treatment programs, beginning in 2002 in part because Earnhardt admitted he was unable to fully concentrate or communicate with his crew chief after an accident at California. He self-diagnosed himself with a concussion, which he revealed weeks later.NASCAR then said doctors at infield care centers could require drivers to undergo CT scans or MRIs if they suspected a concussion. Clearance to race after suffering a concussion is not given until after a driver obtains a medical release.More than a decade later, Earnhardt also spurred a baseline testing program that is now required of all drivers every preseason.I know how hard Dale has worked and how frustrating this is for him, Hendrick said. He wants to be back, and we want him back, but we want it to be for the long haul. Weve had incredible support from everyone involved with the team, including all of our sponsors. Theyve put Dales health first every step of the way. Adidas Running Shoes Discount. Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Paul Menard has one other goal in addition to winning Sunday in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.He needs to get a photo of the yard of bricks.Menard wants to build a yard of bricks at his home and wants to have it just like the bricks at the finish line of the famed racetrack.Theres a reason Menard has so much love for the track, as his family used to field cars in the Indianapolis 500.Menard remembers how he could get close to his family teams cars as a kid, even though at the time minors werent allowed in the garage. All he needed was to wait until the time teams started doing motor changes.We had these flatbed golf carts to run from where the haulers park into the garage and put the motors on in a plastic crate, Menard said. Every once in a while theyd stick me on a golf cart and put a crate over me and sneak me in the garage, shut the [garage] door and Id crawl out.Not everyone has as good a sneak-into-the-garage story as Menard. He doesnt need to sneak in anymore. He has visited Victory Lane once, as he captured the 2011 Brickyard 400 for his only career Sprint Cup win.After you win the race, you get in the pace car and drive around the track, Menard said. You wave to everybody. I rode around with my dad and Richard [Childress].ddddddddddddhat was my biggest takeaway. We were BSing the whole way around, looking at everything, trying to take it all in.Menard would love to race the Indianapolis 500 but feels that time is not on his side.I would love to, but I just dont see it happening, Menard said. Im 35 years old and its hard to teach an old dog new tricks.I drove an IndyCar [about 15 years ago], and it was a really cool experience but its just a lot different. You cant hustle the cars on an oval. These cars, youre driving so hard every lap.Thats what hell remember about racing at the Brickyard. And hell just remember the times of finding a way to get into the garage and sneaking in and out of various gates. Its such a part of his childhood, its why getting that replicated yard of bricks just right is so important.Its the best race track in the world from history just to what it means to American motorsports and world motorsports, Menard said. Its a special place for a lot of people, myself included. And we have a win there, something that Ill always have. When Im long done racing, it will still be there.
