Dale Earnhardt Jr., who has been out of his race car since July with a concussion, will miss the remainder of the NASCAR season, Hendrick Motorsports announced Friday morning.
Earnhardt has already missed six races and will now skip the remaining 12 events as he recovers. Jeff Gordon and Alex Bowman, who have both substituted for Earnhardt in the No. 88 car during his absence, will continue to split the schedule.
Gordon is set to drive the car this weekend at Darlington Raceway.
Earnhardt has a history of concussions, the latest of which has caused him to have vision problems and balance issues.
