Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished eighth in the Sprint Unlimited on Saturday night but never really considered himself a contender. He believes that Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth were the class of the field and believes he was just a little bit off from contending for the win.

While some drivers complained about the lack of grip in the middle of a run, Earnhardt had no such concerns and says he just didn’t make the right moves in the closing laps.

“I could get runs and charge up into the top five,” Earnhardt said. “But it didn’t like the clean air up there. It got real draggy, just real slow up front. The no. 20 had a really great car and the no. 14 was fast but they are real sharp at plate racing.

“I just didn’t make enough of the right moves or have enough car to get it going there at the end.”

Earnhardt nearly lost a lap to the leaders at the end of the second segment and there was concern that he suffered an engine failure. His team, led by crew chief Steve Letarte, diagnosed the car during the intermission and found no problems. Earnhardt now believes that he just lost the draft.

“Well I thought I had an issue with the engine but it was just that the draft was easy to lose,” Earnhardt said. “With this spoiler on the back, it’s really easy to lose the draft because air gets to your nose pretty quick, and the distance of the draft isn’t as far back as it used to be off the car in front of you. So you can lose it pretty quickly. You have to be real careful.”

The Sprint Cup Series debuted a new car in the Sprint Unlimited and Earnhardt believes it will change the way drivers draft at plate races this season. Earnhardt says the new car, combined with very little draft practice, was the cause of the multicar accident on lap 14 and that drivers have to adjust to the new style of drafting.

“A lot of the guys that weren’t in this race haven’t been in real race conditions with this car yet,” Earnhardt added. “So, half the field still has a lot to learn; a crash course you know…

“The bumpers aren’t perfect. They are imperfect when they line up, and that is going to cause some action and some drama out there. That is the way it used to be, and I think everybody is okay with that. The drafting and the way you work the draft, I think everybody is still kind of learning that. I learned a lot tonight, but I still think there is a ton to learn.”

Dale Earnhardt Jr., driving a No. 3 car in honor of his late father, won his first Nationwide race since 2006 in Michigan.  

July 2, 2010

Dale Earhardt Jr. is emphatic when he says he won’t be running the No.3 race car again. If so, he gave it a fitting final ride Friday night, holding off Joey Logano in a green-white-checkered finish to win the Subway Jalapeno 250 Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

In winning his first Nationwide Series race since 2006, Earnhardt piloted his Chevrolet Impala, clad in a vintage blue and yellow Wrangler paint scheme, past Kyle Busch on lap 70 of the 100-lap event and held the lead the rest of the way. 

“I feel really lucky,” Earnhardt said. “I was so worried I wasn’t going to win because nothing but a win was good enough. I worked hard trying to win it.” 

Earnhardt’s fans were ecstatic. His long-time crew chief Tony Eury Jr. was choked up when interviewed moments after his driver took the checkered flag. 

“You know we lost everything here,” said Eury, referring to the 2001 crash at Daytona that claimed Dale Earnhardt Sr. “To come back with that number and do this, it means everything.” 

Earnhardt reiterated that he will never run the No. 3 again. He insists it’s not his number. 

“I don’t ever want to do it again and I won’t ever change my mind,” he said. 

Richard Childress, who owned the cars that paved Earnhardt Sr.’s induction to the NASCAR Hall of Fame this year and has retained control of the number 3 in NASCAR’s touring series, said the race was very special to him. 

“To see Dale Jr. in victory lane and the look on his face brought back so many memories of when I’ve seen Dale Sr. here,” Childress said. 

Even Logano, who was applying pressure to Earnhardt’s rear bumper after the final re-start, had to admit it was a special moment. 

“I want to win races … but it was pretty cool to see the 3 back in victory lane,” Logano said. “I probably gained a lot of fans by pushing the No. 3 to victory but I’d much rather be in victory lane.” 

Earnhardt, the Nationwide Series (then Busch Series) champ in 1998 and 1999, hadn’t won in 22 series starts since Aug. 19, 2006 in the Carfax 250 at Michigan International Speedway. 

He remains winless in the Sprint Cup Series in 74 races since his victory June 15, 2008, also at Michigan. That’s his only Cup win in his last 151 starts. 

Earnhardt’s only two Nationwide Series starts this season have come at Daytona. He finished 29th after crashing in the Feb. 13 race. 

The final re-start, which drove the race to 102 laps (two more than scheduled) was necessitated by debris from a Paul Menard crash on Lap 97. Some drivers, including Earnhardt, remained on the track. Kyle Busch, third when the caution came out, elected to pit for fresh tires. He dropped to 13th and finished seventh. 

Friday night’s race also marked the debut of Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger in the Nationwide Series. 

Ricky Stenhouse finished third in a Mustang. Series points leader Brad Keselowski, who started on the pole, finished fourth in a Challenger. 

Keselowski added 30 points to his series lead and holds a 277-point advantage on Carl Edwards who finished 11th. 

Earnhardt elected not to do a burnout, hoping to preserve the engine. 

“We want to tear it down, learn where the wear took place,” Earnhardt said. 

The race featured a fiery crash on Lap 8 when Johnny Chapman tangled with Jennifer Jo Cobb at the back of the pack. 

“It was the first time we had a car running right behind us all week and the rear end didn’t hold,” said Cobb, who was slow to get out of the car but OK despite the flames. from:  http://www.usatoday.com/sports/motor/nascar/2010-07-02-earnhardt-daytona-nationwide_N.htm
