September 1999
Earnhardt seeks mid-sized victory

Sept 3, 1999 - Dale Earnhardt is back. If last Saturday's win at Bristol Motor Speedway didn't offer conclusive proof, then his wins in three of the four IROC races this year should suffice, as well as a newfound streak of competitive consistency. Or maybe the proof is in his win earlier this year at Talladega Superspeedway. He's won on a big track. He's won on a small track. He's won in a big car. He's won in a small car. And since the man in black is officially back, maybe the promoters better tighten their purse strings, because the "Intimidator" has a strong track record at Darlington Raceway, the site of Sunday's 50th annual Pepsi Southern 500. He'll be bringing the same car that won at Bristol, too. Full Story

Dale Earnhardt is a nine-time winner at Darlington, and three times in this event; needs one win to equal David Pearson's record of 10; comes here from his controversial win at Bristol where he bumped Terry Labonte down the stretch sending Labonte spinning into the infield; it was his 2nd win of the year and the ninth at Bristol; the 73rd victory of his storied Winston Cup career came in his 630th start; last season was fourth in this race, but had a poor race in the spring with a 25th place finish; stands seventh in the standings with 3,044 points. Earnhardt has the best average finish at Darlington since 1990, with a 9.83 average finish.

Friday, none of that will matter. All Kerry Earnhardt wants to do is qualify the Team Marines Chevrolet for the Dura-Lube 200 at Darlington Raceway.

Don't tell Dale Earnhardt that he's too old to race
August 17, 1999 - It's the age-old, old-age question: How old is too old?
Not 48. Not if you're a stock-car driver. Not if you're Dale Earnhardt. That's what Earnhardt insists, and insists vehemently. So vehemently, in fact, that you risk not reaching old age yourself if you voice an opinion to the contrary in front of Earnhardt, a seven-time Winston Cup champion.

Hamlin has calming influence
August 12, 1999 - If NASCAR had an award for most laid-back crew chief, Kevin Hamlin would win it hands down.

Interesting Observations from the Brick Yard...

Park strengthens hold on Cup ride
July 26, 1999 - LONG POND, Pa. - Ty Norris, who heads Dale Earnhardt Inc.'s racing operations, insists any questions about Steve Park's future are misdirected -- and Park's strong run in yesterday's Pennsylvania 500 would seem to back that up. Full Story

Earnhardt posts another top-ten finish - Steve Park 8th!
July 25, 1999 - Earnhardt who started 11th, stayed in the top-ten most of the day even leading for several laps. He made numerous strategic pit stops during two caution periods for brief rain and two accident related cautions during the closing laps of the Pennsylvania 500. On the final caution with 28 laps to go Earnhardt pitted for four tires and fuel. On the restart Earnhardt, 17th, and Tony Stewart, 16th, put on a real racing exhibition during the closing laps moving to 9th for Earnhardt and 4th for Stewart.  Bobby Labonte won by a substantial margin. Dale Jarrett 2nd, Mark Martin 3rd and Wally Dallenbach 5th.  Steve Park finished one position, 8th, ahead of his car owner Dale Earnhardt. "We salvaged a top-10 out of it after going to the rear there near the end when we pitted for four new tires. The car didn't feel good on the other tires. I think that was the smart thing to do. It ended up kind of crazy. That car qualified well, but I don't know about it for the race. I think we've got a better flat-track car for Indy. That was a good run for Steve Park today. It was good to see him running up front. They need some good luck on that team. Pit strategy was a big key today. I was amazed that some of them made it on fuel, but that's the way it goes."

Senior showing he still has it
July 22, 1999 - Dale Earnhardt can sum up the 1999 Winston Cup season in three simple sentences: "Well, the Daytona 500 was great."  "Then we crashed at Rockingham and crashed at Atlanta."  "It's been interesting from then on just being competitive."  Of course, that doesn't touch on the win at Talladega, or the second-place finish in the Pepsi 400 on the Fourth of July weekend. He also doesn't mention he has four straight top-10 finishes, or the fact he's currently seventh in the point standings -- just 126 out of fifth. Full Story

Earnhardt 9th at Sears Point
June 28, 1999
Dale Earnhardt must have felt like a yo-yo Sunday during the Save Mark/Kragen 350 at Sear Point. Earnhardt started 23rd but by the time the race was restarted after Steve Park did his back flip with a twist on lap 26, Earnhardt had moved up to eleventh.  Later Earnhardt was tapped by Kenny Schrader, spun, and wound up in 39th. He charged back through the pack the rest of the day to finish ninth.   Earnhardt maintains seventh in the Winston Cup Points Standing. "I raced all day long and didn't get anywhere. I drove hard all day and we came from the back to the top 10. We started 23rd and finished ninth. That's another top 10 finish, so maybe we can pick it up a little bit next week at Daytona."

Park Rocked and Rolled at Sears Point
June 28, 1999
Park began the race 39th, and was quickly head over heels, more like a back flip with a twist and rock-bottom landing, for Sears Point Raceway -- but that's not to say he's in love with the 1.95-mile track by any means. On lap 26, Park was heading into Turn 1 at some 135 miles per hour when he lost the No. 1 Pennzoil Monte Carlo, sending him careening into a wall of tires. Upon impact, he did a complete turn in the air before coming to rest in the upright position on top of the concrete retaining wall. "It must have cut a tire down or something," said Park, a first time visitor to Sears Point. "Coming down the straightaway going into Turn 1 the car just took off like we either knocked the tire off the rim or cut a tire down. The car was good in the beginning of the race and started to go away. I don't know if it was starting to go flat and finally rolled off the rim or what. It was a heck of a shot. They said it was a pretty good flip -- it sure felt like it."  Park was not able to return to the race and wound up 41st for the day.

Earnhardt moves on to Pocono
June 15, 1999
Dale Earnhardt finished 16th at Michigan and dropped from seventh to eighth in the NASCAR Winston Cup point standings. Earnhardt has scored nine finishes of 12th or better in the first 14 races this season. He ranked 12th in the NASCAR Winston Cup point standings one year ago. He is just 15 points behind seventh-place Ward Burton. Earnhardt has scored two victories and 19 top-10 finishes in 37 races at Pocono. His finishes there in 1998 included an eighth-place finish in this race and a seventh-place finish there last July.

16th Place finish for Earnhardt at Michigan
June 14, 1999
It appeared to be a spectacular weekend for Earnhardt.  It started off Friday with his third win of the season in the IROC series and an opportunity to race door to door with Dale Earnhardt Jr.  Earnhardt had a solid qualifying run for the K-Mart 400 and then Dale Jr won at South Boston in the Textilease Medique 300. We had great expectations that Earnhardt could pull off a win on Sunday but it just wasn't mean to be.  Dale Jarrett had one of the most dominant cars Michigan has seen and with a caution free race no one has the time to make adjustments to their cars, Earnhardt included. He went down a lap to Jarrett by the second pit stop and could never recover. Earnhardt finished 16th and holds on to 8th in the points standing. This weekend the Cup Series heads to Pocono.

Earnhardt 11th at Dover
Dale Earnhardt qualified 34th for the MBNA 400 at Dover.  He struggled early with a tight setup on his car.  By lap 60 he went down a lap to the leaders.  Crew Chief Kevin Hamlin kept working on the car every pit stop and finally got the car set right and for the remainder of the race Earnhardt was as fast or faster that the leaders but just couldn't recover from being a lap down early in the race. He did finish 11th and maintains seventh in the season points standing.  Earnhardt commented after the race, "We've learned one thing. We're bring a different car here next time."

May 20, 1999
Dale Earnhardt Inc., announced Friday that it has hired Paul Andrews to serve as crew chief for the No. 1 Pennzoil Chevrolet with Steve Park. Andrews will begin working with the No. 1 team immediately, as the team prepares for Saturday's Winston Open at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Andrews, 42, most recently worked at Penske-Kranefuss Racing with Jeremy Mayfield. He had been crew chief with that team since December, 1996. Before that, he spent nine seasons with the team formed by the late Alan Kulwicki. Andrews and Kulwicki combined to win five races and the 1992 NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship.
