DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Bobby Labonte has spent his weekends at the race track for 22 consecutive years. The stretch was so long, he doesn't even know what normal people do with their free time.
He had to figure it out the hard way last weekend, when he found himself out of a ride for the first time since 1989.
Labonte didn't say how he spent last weekend while AJ Allmendinger drove Labonte's car.
He didn't watch the race at Kentucky Speedway, where his streak of 704 consecutive Sprint Cup Series starts came to an end. JTG Daugherty Racing decided to use Allmendinger in the car for a handful of races this year in an attempt for the single-car operation to get more feedback on its car and the overall program.
