BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended his 76-race
winless string Sunday, coasting to victory at Michigan
International Speedway under a caution flag with little but fumes
left in his gas tank.
NASCAR's most popular driver gave his new boss, Rick Hendrick,
only his second victory of the season as he somehow squeezed enough
gas out of his last fillup to go three laps beyond the regulation
finish in the Lifelock 400.
A spin by Patrick Carpentier on the 203rd lap brought out the
final caution and probably saved the victory for Earnhardt, who ran
out of gas moments after crossing the finish line behind the pace
