Dale Earnhardt Jr. came within a half a lap of winning his second NASCAR Sprint Cup series win of 2014 Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Earnhardt’s Hendrick Motorsports crew took a chance by leaving him out during a late pit stop hoping that the No. 88 Chevy would have enough fuel to make it to the end.

It turned out there wasn’t. But it was oh so close.

The No. 88 Chevy sputtered on the backstretch on the final lap, just enough to allow Brad Keselowski past. The engine did re-fire but Earnhardt didn’t have enough speed to catch Keselowski and had to settle for second.  MORE>>>
