Dale Jr. looks to tie win streak record
July 1, 1999

For much of the first part of the 1999 NASCAR Grand National series, defending champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. couldn't seem to find a way to win.

Now, he can't seem to lose.

Earnhardt, who has won three consecutive races, will be looking to tie the Grand National series record at Sunday's DieHard 250 at the Milwaukee Mile (2 p.m.,TNN).

Sam Ard set the series record in 1983 when he won four consecutive races - South Boston, Martinsville, Orange County and Charlotte.

Earnhardt picked up his third victory last Sunday on the road course at Watkins Glen, N.Y, and has opened a 129-point lead over Matt Kenseth in the series points race. And Earnhardt has every reason to be exicted about this weekend - he won last season's race at Milwaukee, taking a 5.483-second win over Elton Sawyer.

``I couldn't really tell last year if we were that good or not,'' Earnhardt said. ``I just wasn't taking any chances. It seemed like the harder I tried to run, the slower I ran. I guess it is just on of those tracks.''

Car chief Tony Eury Jr. said the team is ready to go after win No. 4.

``We feel real good about going back to Milwaukee,'' Eury Jr. said. ``We tested our Winston Cup car last week in Loudon (N.H.) and gained some knowledge that we think will help us at Milwaukee.

``Going to Milwaukee is like taking a vacation because we get to do something more than just go to the race track,'' he explained. ``The whole team gets on a city bus from the hotel and we go to 'Summer Fest.' It gives as a chance to let a little let off a little steam. I think that is why we do so well here because we just relax.''
