This weekend at Dover, Jeffrey Earnhardt attempted to make the Heluva Good! 200
for Rick Ware Racing and had sponsorship from Fast Wax. In final practice, he was involed in a accident and would be forced to go to a back up car.

Earnhardt and the RWR along with former DEI guys and a load of Earnhardt-Gannassi crew couldn't get the back up car prepared good enough, and as a result Earnhardt was sent packing and did not qualify fast enough , even after final practice which he had only attempted around 3o laps, he had the 24th fastest car.

In the interview after the wrech you could see this disapointment in his face, to say the least it was not a Heluva Good weekend for Earnhardt.

Even Earnhadt Jr said "I've seen him over the last couple months once or twice. He looks like he's got a good, solid outlook on his situation and his opportunity. I'm looking forward to seeing how well he can do."

Earnhardt Jr was actually having a news confrence at the time of Jeffery's wrech which ade him stop in mid sentence.

Now we have to wait for this fourth generation Earnhardt to make a race so we could see a new style of Earnhardt on the track, Ware wouldn't give a date or what track he just said

"I really don't want to just throw out a date," he said. "Without talking it over with the Earnhardts, I really don't know when it might be."

Earnhardt was scheduled to make seven races this season, preparing to run for Raybestos Rookie of the Year in 2010.

It did look like he would have made the race if he would have had the chance.
