BROOKLYN, Mich. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. tries not to worry too much about his winless stretch, which reached three years earlier this week.
Of course, now he’s back in Michigan, the site of his last victory. There’s no avoiding the questions.
The date was June 15, 2008. Earnhardt’s fuel-mileage victory at Michigan International Speedway snapped a 76-race winless string shortly after he teamed up with Hendrick Motorsports. Since then, he’s raced 107 times on the Sprint Cup circuit without finishing first.
Despite all that, the popular Earnhardt is a lot more upbeat these days. Although he has yet to win, he has eight top-10 finishes in 14 races this season, equaling his total for all of 201.
