Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

FORT WORTH, TEXAS >> Dale Earn­hardt Jr. is still driv­ing fast, even though he has been side­lined from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Se­ries be­cause of a con­cus­sion.

Earn­hardt was pulled over for speed­ing while driv­ing to Texas Mo­tor Speed­way on Sunday morn­ing be­fore the AAA Texas 500.

His fi­ancee, Amy Reimann, who was in the car with him, posted a pic­ture on Twit­ter of a po­lice of­fi­cer writ­ing out a warn­ing for NASCAR’s most pop­u­lar driver. Ac­cord­ing to her tweet, Earn­hardt didn’t get tick­eted. She didn’t say how fast he was go­ing.

Earn­hardt first be­gan ex­pe­ri­enc­ing con­cus­sion-like symp­toms in late July, and said in Septem­ber he would miss the rest of the sea­son. He plans to be back in No. 88 Chevro­let for Hen­drick Mo­tor­sports for the start of next sea­son at the Day­tona 500.

Even though he’s not rac­ing, Earn­hardt is still do­ing ap­pear­ances at the track, and watches some of the race from the No. 88 pit box.
