What happened to Ernie?

I wondered about that too.  The possibilities that came to mind were that
he had pitted early and had his tires go away, that he had to pit late for
a mechanical problem, or that he slipped and a whole MESS of cars passed
him.  That drop in position cost Ernie a lot in the chase for 10th place.

: Does anybody know what happened to the #28 at the Rock?  Ernie was coming
: on, moving up from 39th to at least 13th.  All at once he was running back
: around 28th or so at least a lap down, and nary a word (that I heard) from
: the TV announcers.  What happened?

I believe that he was also pitting on the back which didn't help any.
