Déjà Vu For Dale Earnhardt Jr

Déjà Vu


Dale Earnhardt, Jr scored his record tying sixth win at Talladega Superspeedway. His win ties him with teammate Jeff Gordon for most wins at this particular track by an active driver. Earnhardt, Jr’s father, the late Dale Earnhardt went o victory lane 10 times at Talladega, the most all-time. Earnhardt’s 76th and final win came here in 2001.

“It’s just real emotional,” Earnhardt, Jr said. “I haven’t won here in a long time, my daddy’s birthday was a couple of days ago. It was real emotional. Everything is so good for me right now. I don’t know why I don’t feel like I deserve it. I just feel overcome with a lot of emotion.”

Earnhardt, Jr led the most laps with 67 and punches his ticket into the Chase for the Sprint Cup in the fall. He hasn’t gone to victory lane here in nearly 11 years. His last win came in the Fall of 2004. There was some concern about his car because the engine began overheating because of debris on the grille. That is reminiscent to his dramatic Daytona 500 win last year, where a piece of black tape got caught in the same area in the final laps.
