NASCAR drivers sometimes plane-pool to tracks. It makes sense; if you're going to the same place as a bunch of people you know in a car, you carpool, right?
Apparently Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Ryan Newman had a plane-pool arrangement on Junior's plane to go to Michigan on Friday. But Junior forgot.
Mike Hoag, who works for JR Motorsports, got this text from Newman.
It looks like Newman wasn't stranded, however.
You know how superstitious people in sports can be. If Newman wins this week, he may be asking Junior to leave him at the airport every week. OK, probably not, but it'd be a hilarious new tradition if it happened.
