The Hendrick Motorsports driver was diagnosed Wednesday. The injury was a result of a crash in the Oct. 7 race at Talladega, Ala.
NASCAR’s most popular driver was part of a 25 car crash on the final lap of the race at Talladega Superspeedway last Sunday. He was scored in the 20th spot. He also suffered a hard hit several weeks prior during a Goodyear tire test at Kansas Speedway.
Earnhardt was in seventh spot in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup but fell four spots after the Talladega crash. He is currently in 11th.
After the race, Earnhardt was critical of the event and of the aero package NASCAR runs there. MORE>>>
