Dale Earnhardt Jr. nearly saw his day end in disaster Sunday during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Advocare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. Starting 11th Earnhardt quickly made his way forward but was stymied during a pit stop on lap 63. After exiting the crew called him back in for a loose wheel.

Earnhardt returned to the track but was a lap down deep in the field. Thanks in part to good pit strategy, Earnhardt was able to rally back and come home fourth at the end of the day. The finish wasn’t a surprise to Earnhardt, in fact he knew he was going to have a good finish at the end of the day.

“Yeah, I did. We had a fast car,” Earnhardt said. MORE>>>
