NASCAR teams are certainly prone to carrying the Victory Lane celebration elsewhere late into the night and into the wee hours of the morning, especially when it was a big win. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s win at Pocono Raceway on Sunday?
"We drank some old-ass beer last night."
-- Dale Earnhardt Jr.
It was big.
The victory secured the season sweep for Junior at the Tricky Triangle, with his third win of the season overall marking him as a legitimate title contender for the first time in years. Needless to say, the No. 88 team celebrated Sunday night, and they celebrated hard.
Man, that's a lot of beer.
Especially when you consider any suds consumed in Victory Lane orally -- or through osmosis; he was pretty soaked -- it's fair to say these guys were all hurting this morning.
Luckily, Clint Bowyer has some keen advice … that he may or may not have learned from past experiences.
It sure sounds like even though the group probably reached a nice, easy-going level of inebriation at some point, they were focused on cleaning out that cooler.

Gotta appreciate the determination of this No. 88 team.
