Earnhardt finishes 7th in Las Vegas 400 
Mar. 7
Dale Earnhardt can manage somewhat of a grin after finishing what has been a miserable race weekend with a top-10 finish in Sunday's Las Vegas 400.  Earnhardt and his crew were never able to find the right setup for the car throughout the race weekend.  On raceday Earnhardt was able to overcome his 38th position starting spot to grab his second top-10 of the year with a seventh place finish.   More to follow.

Earnhardt to start 38th in Las Vegas 400  Mar. 6
Dale Earnhardt qualified a very disappointing 44th during first-round qualifying on Friday afternoon.  On Saturday he took a provisional and will start Sunday's race from 38th spot.  Darrell Waltrip starts shotgun on the field in 43rd position for the third time in three races this season.  Earnhardt's teammate and current points leader Mike Skinner had enormously better fortunes, qualifying fifth in Friday during first-round qualifying.  The race starts Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Earnhardt seeking redemption  Mar. 2
NASCAR Online: Call Rockingham a "temporary inconvenience" for Dale Earnhardt. Despite a crash that relegated him to a 41st-place finish in the Dura-Lube/Big Kmart 400 at North Carolina Speedway, Earnhardt hasn't lost sight of his ultimate goal for the 1999 season: To win a record-breaking eighth NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship.

It takes more than just one bad race to deter the enthusiasm of "The Intimidator," who heads into this Sunday's Las Vegas 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with redemption on his mind.  Full Story.
