After coming close so many times, Dale Jr. has found his his way to victory lane at Martinsville!
During a post race interview, Dale Jr. talked about how when he was a little boy, his daddy had a Martinsville grandfather clock sitting by the front door in his house. There was a round carpet in front of the clock in which Dale would play with his matchbox cars on, dreaming of the day when he would follow in his daddy's footsteps, and win himself one of those big-ole grandfather clocks.
That dream became a reality on Sunday, during a restart when the green flag dropped with four-ta-go, the 88 nudged the 14 of Stewart out-of-the-way to take the lead; Dale never looked back!
The irony in all of this is, if Jr. had won this race last week, he'd still be in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Chase.
This is Dale Earnhardt's fourth win of the season; what a ride for Jr, Nation!
