PLAYERS: Bobby Labonte
Bobby Labonte will spend another week on the sidelines recuperating from a cycling accident last Wednesday. AJ Allmendinger, who was officially named the driver of the No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing team for 2014, will sub for the 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. Allmendinger was originally scheduled to run only two of the remaining races - Kansas Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. Labonte, 49, broke three ribs on August 28 while riding near his home in Trinity, N.C. "I am feeling a lot better, but I don't want to put the race team in any compromising position this weekend," Labonte said in a release. "It just makes more sense to focus on my rehab one more week to ensure that I'm ready to go at Chicago (Chicagoland Speedway) with no issues. I plan to be back with the team then and back behind the wheel."
