Fans of NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. might have to wait a bit longer for the 41-year-old to get behind the wheel of the No. 88 car. Saturday, the popular driver said he is still experiencing issues related to head injuries sustained in two crashes this season.
Earnhardt revealed on Twitter that while his symptoms haven't worsened, they have also not resolved.
He tweeted Saturday: "Update: No change lately. Symptoms have plateaued over the last week. Balance/Gaze Stabilization are only issues. Docs preaching patience."
Earnhardt will miss his third race after having concussion-like symptoms. Alex Bowman subbed for Earnhardt his first week out, then Jeff Gordon came out of retirement last week to sub for Earnhardt.
Gordon starts 24th in today's Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa.
Xfinity: Erik Jones retook the lead from Ty Dillon with 16 laps to go and won the U.S. Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway in Newton. Jones led a race-high 154 of 250 laps, but it took a late inside move to overcome Dillon for his first victory since May.
Trucks: William Bryon continued his dominance, winning for the fifth time this season. Byron, 18, took the Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono. He set a record for truck series wins in a season by a rookie; Kurt Busch had four in 2000.
IndyCar: Points leader Simon Pagenaud edged Team Penske teammate Will Power to take the pole for today's Indy 200. Pagenaud, 48 points ahead of Power, set a track record at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington with a lap at 127.271 mph.
F1: Nico Rosberg earned the pole in his home race, topping Mercedes teammate and title rival Lewis Hamilton to start first in today's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
NHRA: Steve Torrence (Top Fuel), Del Worsham (Funny Car), Bo Butner (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) led qualifying for today's Sonoma (Calif.) Nationals.
