If you are an Earnhardt fan and you are not excited today, check your pulse!
Today is Talladega in the Spring. Today Dale Earnhardt Jr is second in points. Today Dale Jr is only five points behind Greg Biffle for the Sprint Cup points lead. Tonight Dale Earnhardt Jr will be leading the points!
Talladega the giant speedway hidden away in Alabama is known as the house the Earnhardts built. Dale Earnhardt won there ten times including his last victory when he came fron eighteenth place to the win in the last five laps. Dale Jr has won it five times with several near wins. Last year he pushed Jimmie Johnson to the victory with what looked like the fastest car. Tonight feels like his time.
This has been a good year for Junior. It has the feel of his glory years when every week he was in contention. It feels like 2004 when he won six times. I am excited and every other Earnhardt fan in the nation should be too.
Lets stand proud tonight and roar when the 88 goes to the front and I guarantee he will go to the front.
Trust me this is a race you will not want to miss.
