Junior Wins first Win with Hendrick!!!

Bryan CorraoContributor IDecember 17, 2016

This past Sunday, June 15, 2008, Dale Earnhardt Jr got his first win in 76 races and his first win with new owner Rick Hendrick. This is only the second win for Hendrick Motor sports this year as many of you may already know. I believe now that Junior has the monkey off his back, he will now go on and win a few more races this year. He has a great chance now to win the championship this year. Him and many others actually have great chances to win the championship. Sunday was a great day for Junior. He won on fuel strategy, like alot of the winners this year have. His cousin and long time crew chief, Tony Eury Jr. told him to stay out and if he runs out he'll be 25th and even if he came in before the green he would still only be 25th. It wasn't much of thinker now was it??? They made a gutsy call and got away with it. I believe this win by Junior will create momentum going into Sonoma this weekend for all four Hendrick teams. Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Casey Mears, and Dale Jr. all have great chances to win this next Sunday at the Infineon raceway in sonoma. I'm excited and can't wait to see what happens next. So long for now. I'll be back later for more...
