Hendrick | Dale Earnhardt expected to return next weekend

Hendrick Motorsports driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. (concussion) is expected to return to the Sprint Cup Series next weekend at Martinsville Speedway, however, owner Rick Hendrick retracted his statements saying that Earnhardt was cleared to race. "I didn't read my emails this morning," Hendrick said. "I spoke too soon. I do apologize. I've been scolded severely. I promise I will keep my mouth shut." Earnhardt will take part in a closed test at a half-mile oval in Georgia Monday, Oct. 22, and he'll be evaluated Tuesday, Oct. 23.
