Brickyard 400

Dale Jr's day would have been so much better, however an over aggresive Juan Pablo Montoya made bone headed move and took Dale Jr along with him. Dale's car was starting to run the way he wanted it to and he was in the 13th position when the accident happened. This left Dale running two laps down and finishing in 27th. He's moved down one spot in the standings (14th), but I certain if he runs well the next few weeks, he'll get back up in the top 12. Next week the boys head back to my home state of Pennsylvania for the Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500. I will be there with one of my co-workers. I'll have plenty of pictures to post, so make sure you check the blog!! See ya then!

LifeLock.com 400

Dale's car just handled poorly all day long at Chicagoland. Any adjustments that were made didn't help and he finished two positions ahead of where he qualified. Dale started 25th and finished 23rd. This has moved Dale back down to 13th in the points.

If you think about it, his position this year in the standing is much better this year than it was last year. At this time he was down in the lower teens/upper 20's and had run out of time to make up any ground. As you already know, the guys were off this past weekend and will be at the world famous Indiananpolis Motor Speedway this Sunday. This year (for reasons not known to me) ESPN and ABC are sharing coverage of the remaining races. This year, the Brickyard 400 will not be telecast on ABC as it had in previous years. It will be shown on ESPN. I will let you know which races will be broadcast on which network as they come up.

Coke Zero 400

Due to rain, qualifying was cancelled, so Dale started 13th. I had to work which was actually ok because by the time I got home, there were only 20 laps down. Junebug was not happy with his car all night long, but due to "the big one" and another small wreck at the end, he finished 4th. Dale has moved back into the top 12 in 11th spot, knocking his teammate Mark Martin out.

Nationwide Race Hightlights

Final Laps and Victory Lane


What an awesome way to pay tribute to Dale Sr. Not only did the car look sharp under the lights at Daytona, but Dale Jr held off Joey Logano to win the Subway Jalapeno 250 powered by Coca-Cola tonight! The 3 car was strong all night long, and the teaming of Dale Jr and Tony Jr plus a Hendrick engine and the 88 pit crew made for a picture perfect night. At the end, with 5 laps to go, Paul Menard hit the wall which brought out the caution. Dale and Joey worked together and like I said, he held off Joey to win the race. WAY TO GO JUNEBUG!!!!!!

Lenox Industrial Tools 301

Dale had a great run at Loudon and came out with a top 10 finish at New Hampshire. After starting 31st, Dale made his way up through the field and finished 8th. He remains 13th in points and is 3 points away from knocking Carl Edwards outside of the top 12.
