CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Rick Ware Racing says it will field a Truck for Jeffery Earnhardt this weekend at Martinsville Speedway, after all.
Ware had said Tuesday he had terminated the contract with the 21-year-old driver because Earnhardt was actively looking for another ride. Ware also accused Earnhardt of trying to steal the team's sponsor.
On Wednesday, the team owner blamed the decision on emotions and a lack of communication between the two. He says he'll use Earnhardt this Saturday at Martinsville and work to keep him in the Truck for the rest of the year.
Earnhardt is the grandson of the late seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt. He's 10th in the series standings through three races, with a best finish of seventh at Daytona.
