Dale Earnhardt Jr. to compete in Nationwide race

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be competing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night, which means he'll be reunited with crew chief Tony Eury Sr. with the No. 5 car.

Dale Jr. has only raced two NNS races this season -- at Daytona (finishing 15th) and at Bristol (fifth). The green flag will drop for the 200-lap race at 7:30 p.m. and it'll be shown nationally on ESPN2.
