The exhaustion Dale Earnhardt Jr. was suffering was visible Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Shortly after climbing from his Hendrick Motorsports Chevy., Earnhardt Jr. sat on the pit wall and talked about his day.

After starting 28th, Earnhardt tried to fight his way forward, but seemed to get nowhere on the one mile oval in Loudon New Hampshire. The key came when crew chief Steve Letarte began calling for two tire pits stops. The move allowed Earnhardt to move into the top five.

He wasn’t able to stay there near the end however. Earnhardt tried to hold on but could only manage a 10th place finish when the checkered flag dropped. MORE>>>
