Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove his Chevrolet into victory lane Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. This victory comes almost 4 years to the day since his last win. The win and the bonus points for leading the most laps has put him only 4 points behind overall points leader Matt Kenseth as they head to Sonoma this weekend.
Jr. had gone 143 races without a win. To date he has 100 top 5 finishes and 173 top tens. He has been so close so many times and this weekend finally closed the deal. This gave Hendrick Motorsports their 203rd Sprint Cup Victory.
The LSX Dr. would like to congratulate Dale Jr., Hendrick Motorsports and Chevrolet for the victory in Michigan. What a great way to end Father’s Day by having Dale Jr. in Victory Lane.
