1987: Dale Earnhardt extends his season-opening hot streak to four wins in a row by outrunning two huge rivals in the Sovran Bank 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. Earnhardt, who started fourth, bypassed Geoffrey Bodine and led the final 17 laps at the .526-mile track. Rusty Wallace finished second, 2.73 seconds behind, and Bodine held on for third. The victory was the sixth in the first eight races of the season for Earnhardt, who rolled to five more wins and his third series championship in ’87.
