LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. says he's been able to concentrate on racing even after a shakeup in the Nationwide team he founded.
The co-owner of JR Motorsports says it has been difficult to deal with the changes since his uncle, Tony Eury Sr., was fired as competition director. Earnhardt's cousin, Tony Eury Jr., let go this week as part of the shakeup. He had been the crew chief for Danica Patrick in the Nationwide Series.
Earnhardt said before Friday's practice at New Hampshire that the team's turmoil has weighed on him. But he says it hasn't been a distraction ``when I go to work.''
Earnhardt owns JR Motorsports team with his sister, Kelley Earnhardt-Miller, Rick Hendrick and Eury Jr.
