This is the sixth race of the season Earnhardt has failed to finish.

Earnhardt’s playoff chances are dwindling, and he will need to win a race in the next few weeks to qualify for the postseason.

“We had a great car, I was having a lot of fun, the car was fast, we had a top-10 car for sure,” Earnhardt said. “It’s frustrating because I really enjoyed being out there.

“Hopefully, our luck’s going to turn around. It’s been pretty tough and this is a difficult one to put up with.”
