Franchitti To Miss Showdown

Dario Franchitti and the No. 40 Dodge team will sit out this weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star events at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Franchitti, who continues to recover from an ankle injury he received in the Nationwide event at Talladega Superspeedway last month has yet to receive clearance from his doctor to return to racing competition.

Franchitti was fitted for a carbon fiber brace earlier this month but will take another weekend off to give his ankle more time to heal. His status behind the wheel of the No, 40 Dodge will continue to be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
