Dover, DE - "The tires were pretty wore out," Earnhardt said. "It'd been 100 laps on them, and that's rare at this place. I came down on the asphalt and that's a different beast than the concrete. Once I did that and downshifted into third I locked up the rear tires and spun the car out".

"Luckily, I didn't hit nothing. I know I came awful close to hitting the end of the pit wall, but we didn't hit nothing. I got the car righted, came back in and got an excellent pit stop. That helped us out what I lost spinning out on the apron of the race track."

Earnhardt's crew got him off pit road first, and he led the rest of the way virtually unchallenged. He enjoyed a 4.022-second cushion over Hillin at the checkered flag, claiming the second victory of his career.
