Hendrick Motorsports revealed on Thursday that Dale Earnhardt Jr. will not compete in the next two Sprint Cup Series races due to a concussion he suffered last Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. Earnhardt Jr., who is the most popular driver in NASCAR, was involved in a 25-car crash on the final lap at Talladega. He will miss Saturday night's race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the October 21st event at Kansas Speedway. Regan Smith will substitute for Earnhardt Jr. in the No. 88 Chevrolet at both racetracks. Live coverage of the Bank of America 500 from Charlotte on AM 1590 and FM 95.5 starts tomorrow night at 6:30.
