Dale Earnhardt Jr on Playoff Chase Bubble Headed to Talladega
Dale Earnhardt Junior is in a tight spot, sitting 12th in the Sprint Cup Standings.
He likely needs to win this weekend because the playoff chase field will be cut from twelve to eight .
The problem for Earnhardt is the race on Sunday is at Talladega.
Sure Junior has enjoyed success at the World’s Fastest Speedway with five victories.
But it’s always a roll of the dice at Talladega trying to avoid the big wreck.
Said Earnhardt,"Guys are going to have to take some pretty big chances to continue to move on into the later rounds of the chase. Talladega is a track where we are all kind of on top of each other in the draft. Guys are going to have every opportunity to make things pretty interesting. So I expect that race to get pretty wild."
