Earnhardts 600th consecutive start a rough one
August 15, 1999- (AP) - Dale Earnhardt's 600th consecutive start ended on a sour note Sunday in the Frontier at the Glen. Bearing down on his ninth straight top-10 finish of the season, he got tangled up with Bill Elliott, teammate Mike Skinner, and Joe Nemechek on the final turn of the race and was shuffled back to 20th when the dust had cleared. "It was a bad day," said Earnhardt, who slammed into the back of Skinner. "We didn't have the car to run and we weren't in position to run. That 600th straight start was pretty sorry. It isn't one I want to remember." Nor does Elliott. "We were just racing," said Elliott, who qualified eighth and had a strong car all afternoon. "I got inside of Nemechek and we got together hard enough that I had to finish with a flat left front tire. We went from ninth to 28th, but that's just lap racing sometimes."

The incident sent Earnhardt's car hard into the styrofoam barrier and stoked a few tempers. "I drove my car in way too deep and here comes Elliott. I knew there was no way he was going to make it," said Nemechek, who ended up 30th. "It's a shame. The last lap, running good, the car is all tore to hell. We were both running eighth. I'm still hot right now, but I'll cool down."
