Earnhardt Jr. supporters agonize over final five laps
Following his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win of the season and first at Pocono Raceway, Dale Earnhardt Jr. virtually assured himself a spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
He also nearly caused a heart attack for some of his fans.
On Friday at Michigan International Speedway, Earnhardt Jr. was asked what was the best part of the celebration the week after his win.
Fan reaction was tops on his list.
"Especially the stuff on YouTube," Earnhardt Jr. said. "It's a bit of an ultimate reward, and it's kind of at the core of why you go out and race.
"To see somebody get that excited and that happy about a result is a hell of a pat on the back."
