Dale Jr.'s bad luck in his final season continues


Dale Earnhardt Jr. cannot catch a break. He is already out of the playoffs and just racing for pride. But in the final stage of the race at New Hampshire, he encountered even more bad luck.

His front left tire went down and damaged the back of his car, sending Junior to the pits and leaving debris that eventually resulted in a caution.

The unscheduled stop has Earnhardt Jr currently running 8 laps down.
