NASCAR Winston Cup fans had plenty to reasons to look forward to the 1992 season as Dale Earnhardt and car woner Richard Childress began making preparations to defend their second-straight NASCAR Winston Cup championship.

The defending champion had the most disappointing season: He struggled throughout the year.  Dale won just once in the Goodwrench Chevrolets and had only six top-five finishes all year.  He eventually finished 12th in the standings, sandwiched between Irvan and Rusty Wallace.  It was not a typical performance from the black-clad crew, and everyone expected the team to return with a vengeance the following season.  They would not be disappointed.
