I just got finished reading an article about NASCAR on Yahoo. Supposedly Dale Earnhardt is very happy about finally finishing a race in the Top 10, a feat he hasn’t accomplished in awhile. For Earnhardt fans this may seem like the beginning of a surge to the upper echelons. Don’t get your hopes up. Drive in enough NASCAR races and you’ll probably get a good finish every now and then. But for Dale Earnhardt it’s just an exceptionally mediocre finish in an exceptionally mediocre string of performances. He won’t be there in the end.
