Finally Little E

It has been quite some time since Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove his #8 into victory lane until last night in Richmond.  Oddly enough Kevin Harvick lead 272 of the 400 laps at the Crown Royal 400 and Earnhardt was determined to shoot for 2nd because Harvick looked so strong.  The race changed though when the 8th caution arrived and Earnhardt along with other contenders went in the pits for new tires and Harvick decided to stay on the track.  Earnhardt Jr. quickly captured the lead and held off a charging Denny Hamlin.  The win could be the sign of big things to come after Earnhardt Jr. experienced the worst season of his career last year and had not won a race in 27 attempts.  The win was his third in Richmond and 17th overall.
