Pure Michigan 400

Dale Jr had a good run at Michigan despite having to go to his back up car and start at the back of the pack. His starting position was 22nd and he finished in 4th, moving him up to 3rd in points. Dale is locked into the chase as the top 4 in points were locked in as of the race at Michigan.

Finger Lakes 355 at The Glen

Dale Jr has never had much luck at road course racing and his day at Watkin's Glen was proof of that. He started 16th and after a late race spin went a lap down and finished in 28th. He lost the points lead and fell to 4th.

In Memory......

Brian Zimmerman, the fan who was killed after the rain shortened Pennsylvania 400.
A fund has been set up for his family, to find out more go to Pennsylvania 400 Memorial Fund.
