A popular NASCAR driver sheds tears of joy at Talladega.

FOX News Radio's Steve Rappoport has a race recap:

Victory lane merged with memory lane on a sunny Sunday afternoon...

(Race Call) "Earnhardt trying to cover all spots... Dale Earnhardt Jr.... checkered flag at Talladega!"

The call on FOX Sports.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. scoring an emotional first victory of the season at the Alabama track where his late father won ten times.

(Earnhardt Jr.) "All I ever want to do was is him proud and I feel like that when we win at those tracks where he was successful, that's exactly what we're doing."

Junior led a race-high 67 laps in his sixth career win at Talladega. Jimmie Johnson finished second, followed by Paul Menard, Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr.
