 BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - Ryan Newman made it to Michigan, no thanks to Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Newman thought he had arranged a ride on Earnhardt's plane Friday morning. The problem was that Earnhardt forgot about that and left Newman at the Statesville Regional Airport in North Carolina.
Newman said he arrived before the scheduled 8:30 a.m. departure, but the plane was already gone. He was able to find former NASCAR driver Dale Jarrett's plane and get a ride on that.
Earnhardt says the takeoff time for his plane was moved a half-hour earlier because of media commitments. He tweeted: ''Imma pay for this one. I'm hoping and praying that the reason (at)RyanJNewman isn't responding to my text are because he is at 40,000 feet.''
