No. 88 team drinks an "Andre The Giant" amount of beer after Pocono

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.
