NASCAR Update (aka the Junior watch)

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. had a quiet day at Darlington, but it was good enough for a tenth place finish. In contrast, the Lady in Black took a bite out of points-leader Matt Kenseth. Kenseth was still running when the checkered flag dropped, but a minor accident led to a thirty-first place finish for the DeWalt Ford team. Despite the poor finish, Kenseth held on to first place in the Cup standings. Dale Junior moved ahead of Tony Stewart and into second place. Next up: the Bristol day race.
