Dale Earnhardt Jr. wasn’t in contention to win Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen International Sunday, but was in line for a decent finish.
After starting 25th, Earnhardt made his way inside the top 15 and at one point was as high as fourth. As the laps would down Earnhardt, who has never won one a Sprint Cup race on a road course, was sitting just outside the top 10 and looking to break in. But only 7 laps from the end disaster struck.
“The No. 20 (Matt Kenseth) was going after the No. 9 (Marcos Ambrose) and missed him or got him a little bit,” Earnhardt said. MORE>>>
