Nascar legend Dale Earnhardt Jr is the undisputed most popular racer for racing fans. But concussion woes forced him to leave the Sprint Cup Series for the time being and that meant missing out on racing at at Chicagoland Speedway last weekend. Eardnhardt will find himself in Illinois this week though as Ag giant Brandt will bring Earnhardt and Infinity Series racer Justin Allgaier to Brandt's Springfield headquarters for a half hour public event. Brandt's Chief Marketing Officer, Karl Barnhart, says it's the rarest of opportunities for Junior fans.
Earnhardt Jr. will appear at the Brandt Co. Springfield headquarters from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday for a moderated question-and-answer session. (Springfield 2935 South Koke Mill Road)
