Earnhardt Jr. happy with run in the top 10
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. was at a crossroads.
Reunited with his old team and feeling indebted to it for putting together a strong car that ran fifth going into the two overtime laps of the Daytona 500, Junior couldn't decide whether to go for the win or stay in line and secure a top-five finish.
“ This motor's like an old man -- it'll wake up and run for a while, then fall back asleep. ”
