    Possible he can back for Kentucky next week if he tests negative for two separate tests done 25 hours apart, AND he receives a doctor's release. That is the requirement stated by NASCAR.

    NASCAR rules state a driver must start all regular season events to be eligible for the playoffs, but a waiver can be granted in certain cases, usually for injuries. Jimmie was granted a waiver for missing the Brickyard last Sunday.
