Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been in the Chase for the Sprint Cup
championship each year since he was paired with Letarte.
Long Pond, PA ( - Upon his arrival to Pocono Raceway on Friday morning for this weekend's Sprint Cup Series race, Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweeted, "Landed in Pocono. Lookin for a broom."

Earnhardt, who has been voted as NASCAR's most popular driver for the past 11 years, is hoping for a season-sweep at Pocono. If Earnhardt takes the checkered flag for Sunday's 400-mile race, he would become the seventh different driver to win both Sprint Cup races here in the same season. Bobby Allison (1982), Bill Elliott (1985), Tim Richmond (1986), Bobby Labonte (1999), Jimmie Johnson (2004) and Denny Hamlin (2006) have accomplished that feat at this 2.5-mile triangular-shaped racetrack.

When the series most recently competed at Pocono in June, Earnhardt passed Brad Keselowski for the lead with five laps remaining and then held off Keselowski at the finish for the victory. It was the first time he had won here in 29 starts.   Full Story
