Head2Head: Will Junior's admission have impact on the sport?

The biggest racing news of the week, maybe even of the season, didn't happen in a race car at all. It didn't include a firesuit, a sponsor or wearing a helmet. When Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced that he was missing at least two races in this championship Chase after a concussion formed due to crash trauma including a blown tire in Kansas and the Big One at Talladega, it was a real big one, all right. But what does it mean, now that he's missed the race and the announcement has had a few days to hang out there? Will Junior's admission have impact on the sport? Nick Margiasso and Joe Menzer are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Read their arguments and weigh in with your comments below.
