Ware to run Jeffery Earnhardt at Martinsville

Rick Ware Racing says it will field a Truck for Jeffery

Earnhardt this weekend at Martinsville Speedway, after all.

Ware had said Tuesday he had terminated the contract with the

21-year-old driver because Earnhardt was actively looking for

another ride. Ware also accused Earnhardt of trying to steal the

team’s sponsor.

On Wednesday, the team owner blamed the decision on emotions and

a lack of communication between the two. He says he’ll use

Earnhardt this Saturday at Martinsville and work to keep him in the

Truck for the rest of the year.

Earnhardt is the grandson of the late seven-time NASCAR champion

Dale Earnhardt. He’s 10th in the series standings through three

races, with a best finish of seventh at Daytona.
