BACK ON TRACK
DALE EARNHARDT JR.
The driver of the number 88 car ended a 143-race winless streak at the Quicken Loans 400 in Michigan on June 17 and ranks third in the Sprint Cup points standings.
Do you expect to win the Sprint Cup title this year?
DALE EARNHARDT JR.: I think we can be part of the story line. You've got to look at the defending champion, Tony Stewart, and Jimmie Johnson, with all his trophies. But I think we can be part of the mix. Last year we finished well, but we weren't in the battle for the title.
After winning at Michigan, did you forget how to celebrate?
It'd been a while.
[Laughs.] I thought you saw my celebration and didn't like it.
No, not at all. Explain what you do to celebrate.
