Following a test session Wednesday afternoon at Darlington Raceway, Hendrick Motorsports driver Earnhardt Jr. has been medically cleared to resume NASCAR competition after making a full recovery from a concussion, Hendrick Motorsports PR reports.
Mears, who will be replaced in the No. 13 GEICO Chevy next season by Ty Dillon, tweeted Tuesday, "Thank you for all the support out there. Working on what's next. Having fun exploring all options and directions."
