Dickerson resigned to the fact that towel isn't enough


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Hendrick Motorsports officials confirmed Thursday that the organization's director of chassis engineering, Eddie Dickerson, has resigned.
The resignation, which became official on Tuesday, came two days after Dickerson's arrest early Sunday morning on charges of disorderly intoxication.

According to a Daytona Beach Shores Police spokesperson, Dickerson, 49, who lives in Mooresville, N.C., was found at 4:04 a.m. Sunday alongside A1A in nothing but a towel.

The incident was reported to police by a clerk at the nearby Oceanside Inn.

Dickerson's arrest came hours after Hendrick driver Jimmie Johnson won Saturday night's Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway.

Dickerson's specialized in sheet metal, chassis building/engineering and research and development. The department produces close to 40 new cars annually, while maintaining and repairing car bodies already in use. Dickerson's department built more 300 cars since 1992.
