I spoke to Dale Earnhardt Jr. about his chances this weekend for victory at Indy…
(Earnhardt Jr.) “I’m actually excited. We’ve been running pretty well at the Brickyard last several trips and we’re due for a win.”
Team owner Richard Childress has won at Indy three times with three different drivers including Dale Earnhardt Sr. and for Childress…
