On 7/2 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Nationwide Race at Daytona. He was driving a car that looked like his father’s Wrangler car with the #3 on it. What a great ending!! I think he had a co-pilot with him :-)- his Dad. It has been a long time since he has won a race but this was an important one. Tony Eury, Jr. was his crew chief, Richard Childress let him use the #3, and his crew were the #8 team’s crew. DEI worked with him, too. Jr. said that this is the last time driving the #3.

It was great to see the end of the race and all the fans standing with 3 fingers in the air. The emotions were at a high – even Tony Eury, Jr. was crying!

JR seems to be doing better the last couple of races. That is good. Maybe JR and his crew chief are jelling.

Wow! The ending was great! When Kyle Bush was tryin to block Stewart and he didn’t calculate the distance between his car and Stewart’s car, it was exciting to see him go out of control and loose. I am glad he was not hurt (aren’t those care safe?) especially with the hits he received after hitting the wall. But boy did he look mad!
