10:10 AM ET 08.10 | Dale Earnhardt Jr. wouldn't mind seeing Regan Smith be the next substitute driver for Tony Stewart's No. 14 Chevrolet while the three-time Sprint Cup champion recuperates from a broken leg. "I'd be the first to put Regan's name in the hat for that kind of opportunity," Earnhardt said on Friday at the Glen. "I understand that we are racing for a championship and I think that could actually help Regan understand. It would be a challenge, but I think it could help him in some ways and be an advantage to him maybe to have that extra track time and just be able to have some other ideas in his head about what can improve his car."

Guess this isn't going to work out after all for Smith and Tony's #14.
