Ten Years in the Making - Does Junior's Daytona 500 Success Predict a Win at Bristol?
With just under 88 days remaining until NASCAR's elite race under the lights of the Last Great Colosseum, members of Junior Nation hope history repeats itself.
On February 23, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. shook off the bridesmaid tag and won his first Daytona 500 in 10 years.
Grinning from ear to ear and declaring he never would take it for granted, Earnhardt, Jr., savored with emotion a second win in the season-opener. Long known as a student of the history of the sport, it is certain the fact it took his father 20 tries to win his first, was not lost on "Junior."
Another fact unlikely to be lost on the popular driver, his last Daytona 500 win was a precursor to five more that season - including the Night Race at Bristol.
