Dale Jr. Looking Still Looking to Void On His Home Track
Dale Earnhardt Jr. aimed to fill a major void in his NASCARSprint Cup Series resume in stock-car racing's longest event. Though he's entered Charlotte's Victory Lane as an All-Star conqueror back in 2000 and a winner in the preliminary Sprint Showdown in 2012, his career record stands at 0-for-31 in points-paying races at the 1.5-mile oval.
"It's been on my list for a very long time," Earnhardt said Tuesday in a promotional appearance at the speedway. "This is our home track. We live 20, 30 minutes down the road and I've been coming here ever since I was a little kid, and have just dreamed of being able to go into Victory Circle here after that 600 and celebrate. Really working hard and I think we've got a great shot."
The NASCAR Hall of Fame's class of 2016 revealed, as five members will be inducted a recent ceremony in Charlotte.
