Six questions with NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been seeking something in NASCAR that has eluded him since 2008; a win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It’s something that hasn’t happened since June of 2008 at Michigan. Four races into the 2012 season however, Earnhardt is showing a bit more confidence and seems to be close to visiting victory lane.

Even without a win, Earnhardt remains the most popular driver in NASCAR. Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway, Earnhardt met with the media and talked about his season, the new technology in the sport and his niece among other subjects. MORE>>>
