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.

Park, Andrews combination clicking
June 14, 1999
The duo clicked to the tune of a sixth-place finish -- Park's best-ever in NASCAR Winston Cup competition -- in Sunday's Kmart 400 at Michigan Speedway. Good enough to beat the boss, Dale Earnhardt, who owns the team. Earnhardt finished 16th.
Fully Story

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 father/son duel promises to be hot
June 08, 1999
When he makes the step to Cup in 2000, much will be made of the rivalry between Junior and Matt Kenseth or Tony Stewart, but the real story will be when he goes door-to-door with the Intimidator. (What a nickname for your dad, eh?)

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."

Park feels pain of disappointment
June 2, 1999
Park, driver of the No. 1 Pennzoil Chevrolet, was enjoying the finest outing of his brief series career when, on lap-240, he got loose coming out of Turn 4 and tapped Jeremy Mayfield. Although the bump was slight, it was enough to send Park careening into the outside retaining wall, ending the best-ever run for the Islip, N.Y., native.fullstory.gif (209 bytes)

Little E - This Bud's for You
May 27, 1999
Today Jim Sprick, brand manager, Budweiser marketing announced at Lowe's Motor Speedway that Budweiser has released a commemorative 16-oz can of the "King of Beers" featuring Earnhardt Jr.'s #8 Monte Carlo on it. Sprick noted, "I can't tell you the first time that Budweiser ever appeared on a race car, but I can tell you this is the first time a race car has appeared on a can of Budweiser." Earnhardt Jr. deadpanned, "It must be such a big deal, they had to put it on a 16 oz. [can]."

Dale Jr.'s biggest fear is over
May 27, 1999
