Today's NASCAR Number is 12.

12: In points, the size of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s lead over Brad Keselowski in the standings through five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races this season. Earnhardt’s largest career lead in the Cup standings came in 2004, after the June 6 race at Dover, when he paced Jimmie Johnson by 98 points -- roughly equivalent to 25 points under the current scoring system. Earnhardt led the series after 10 races in 2004, a high-water mark for the driver of the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.
