Dale Earnhardt, Jr. takes the checkered flag ahead of Ward Burton,
then Dale and the ACDelco Team celebrate their win in victory lane.

Dover, DE - Dale talks about the first win of the 1999 season.

"I've kind of got mixed emotions here," Earnhardt Jr. said immediately after exiting his ACDelco Chevrolet in Dover's Victory Lane.

"We lost a relative and a real good friend -- the father of Tony Eury, Ralph Eury. We want to dedicate this one to him. We wanted to get him one in Charlotte, but it had to come at Dover.

"We finally got to Victory Lane, so maybe we got the monkey off our back. We put a little point spread on 'em, so maybe we can go down to Homestead and win the championship again."

"To get first place is surely a relief compared to where we've been running," Jr. said. "We're going to go home now and watch the truck race and drink some Budweiser."

"Now that we're back in Victory Lane, I hope all the Earnhardt fans are happy," Earnhardt Jr. said. "We've been out of Victory Lane for a while, so this gives us something to be excited about. We're real happy everything is going like we expected. We had a little difficulty with winning some races like we did last year, but the car has been running up front. We've been running in the top-2."
