Earnhardt finishes 7th in Las Vegas 400 Mar. 7
Dale Earnhardt can manage somewhat of a grin after
finishing what has been a miserable race weekend with a top-10 finish in Sunday's Las
Vegas 400. Earnhardt and his crew were never able to find the right setup for the
car throughout the race weekend. On raceday Earnhardt was able to overcome his 38th
position starting spot to grab his second top-10 of the year with a seventh place finish.

Earnhardt to start 38th in Las Vegas 400
Dale Earnhardt qualified a very disappointing 44th
during first-round qualifying on Friday afternoon. On Saturday he took a provisional
and will start Sunday's race from 38th spot. Darrell Waltrip starts shotgun on the
field in 43rd position for the third time in three races this season. Earnhardt's
teammate and current points leader Mike Skinner had enormously better fortunes, qualifying
fifth in Friday during first-round qualifying. The race starts Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
ET on ABC.
Earnhardt seeking redemption
NASCAR Online: Call Rockingham a "temporary
inconvenience" for Dale Earnhardt. Despite a crash that relegated him to a 41st-place

sight of his ultimate goal for the 1999 season: To win a record-breaking eighth NASCAR
Winston Cup Series championship.
It takes more than just one bad race to deter the enthusiasm of "The
Intimidator," who heads into this Sunday's Las Vegas 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
with redemption on his mind. Full Story.
