Short takes from the NASCAR notebook:
Max Siegel, president of global operations for Dale Earnhardt Inc., will be a guest lecturer Friday at his alma mater, the Notre Dame law school. He will join Jim Hagale, president and chief operating officer of Bass Pro Shops, to discuss sports marketing, pro sports franchise ownership and management and athletic representation.
Brad Daugherty will work Saturday’s Busch race and the one the following week at Kansas in the broadcast booth for ESPN2. He will replace Andy Petree in the booth this week and Rusty Wallace the following week. Petree and Wallace will spend those races in the ESPN/ABC production truck to observe that side of a race telecast.
