So by now the NASCAR fans and the whole racing community knows Dale JR is out of the car due to concussion like symptoms. He announced it a couple weeks ago he was feeling the effects and could not compete.
He had Alex Bowman fill in in New Hampshire, a race I attended, and he ran okay. Then Mr. Hendrick summoned Jeff Gordon to drive at Indy and Pocono.
I read on social media that the decision to go with Jeff instead of Alex was a slap in the face to Alex. Here’s the facts, Mr Bowman lost his Cup ride, yes he drives for JR in the Xfinity series but he’s not the same caliber driver as Jeff is. No offence to Alex but Rick Hendrick must go with the best available, that 88 seat deserves it. 🏁
