MARTINSVILLE, VA. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. says he hates the attention his concussions and nearly three-week departure from NASCAR caused, but he “learned a ton” and is glad he took the steps he did to make sure he is OK to race.
He missed races at Charlotte and Kansas after a crash at Talladega, Ala., on Oct. 7. A trip to the doctor revealed the concussions that Earnhardt says left his head fuzzy and mind swimming with anxiety.
He says he was “really mentally a mess” until he went to see a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh and spent about 12 hours talking and doing testing.
He says he’s fine now and felt “foolish” watching races while feeling normal.
