EARNHARDT WILL WIN AT DAYTONA

So says SI.com's Lars Anderson, who predicts that Dale Earnhardt Jr. will snap his 74-race winless streak in Daytona, with not one, but two victories this weekend. Anderson also thinks that Junior will make The Chase. Anderson also thinks that if we send our positive energy out towards the ocean we can cap the BP oil well with our good intentions. (I am just kidding about one of those things. But try and guess which one.) The next chapter in 'The Earnhardts at Daytona' could be a happy one (S ...

EARNHARDT JR. DIE-CAST CAR CONTEST

Earlier this year All Left Turns received a box of AMP Energy gear to do with as we pleased. We gave most of it away (remember this handsome jacket?) but kept a few pieces like this die-cast car. Surely, we thought, Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s fortunes will improve and we will be able to sell this fine piece of merchandise on eBay for thousands and thousands of dollars - or at least enough to get Dan Farkas out of Fake Debtor's Prison. No such luck. With no turnaround in sight - in spite of the wishful ...

EARNHARDT DRAGGING DOWN MARK MARTIN?

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 team remains mired in one of sports' most miserable losing streaks. SI.com's Tom Bowles points out that misfortune is spreading across the Hendrick Motorsports garage. Writes Bowles, "You'd think Earnhardt could go to Mark Martin for support, but the disease of discontent has spread to the No. 5. An offseason move to combine both their resources hasn't clicked, with Martin's team in the midst of a winless season of their own. Even at their best track, Dover, they ...
