Earnhardt Jr. wins in Michigan
BROOKLYN, Mich. – Dale Earnhardt Jr. raced to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in four years, ending a 143-race winless streak Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.
The victory came almost exactly four years to the day after his last trip to Victory Lane in a Cup race. That also was in Michigan on June 15, 2008. He led for 36 laps last weekend at Pocono but made a late stop for gas instead of trying to stretch the fuel to the end.
On Sunday, it wasn’t even close. He pulled away over the final 25 laps of the 400-mile race, and his black Chevrolet with the green No. 88 finally crossed the finish line 5.393 seconds ahead of Tony Stewart.
