Lenox Industrial Tools 301

Dispite a somewhat loose racecar through the entire race, Dale Jr managed to finish 15th and slipped one more spot to 9th in the points standings.

The boys have off this weekend, and then next weekend it's off to Indy.

Quaker State 400

Jr struggled most of the night with his race car and near the end had a decent top 10 going when he came in for fuel. Steve made the call for no tires, and after exiting pit road, blew a tire and finished 30th. He moved down one position in the standings and needs to finish really well this weekend in order to not slip further down in the standings.

Coke Zero 400.

Well, close again!! After working with Jimmie all night, Dale Jr seemed like he was going to have a strong finish. That was until a late race caution came out and Jimmie went to pit road for tires and Jr had no idea about it and stayed on the track. Jr started 6th and ran mid pack with Jimmie for most of the race. He was going to finish in the top 10, but a wreck on the last lap caused him to be placed in 19th position and remain 7th in points. Next weekend the boys head to Kentucky for the first time.
