ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - After a frightening crash at Talladega, Eric McClure had to sit out six weeks while dealing with the lingering effects of a concussion - the third of his career.
Now he has received clearance from NASCAR officials and was back in his No. 14 car Friday, practicing for Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Road America. But after all he has been through, McClure at least entertained the thought of not returning to racing.
McClure says racing ``isn't the most important thing in my life.''
The accident is just the latest in a series of setbacks for McClure. In April 2011, he and his family huddled in the safety of their basement while a tornado destroyed their home in Virginia. They had just moved into a new home when McClure contracted Epstein-Barr, a virus related to mononucleosis.
