|Earnhardt Looks to Put Winless Streak Behind Him
|DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. is hoping to pick up the next memorable victory for Hendrick Motorsports.
Jimmie Johnson raced to owner Rick Hendrick's 200th win. Kasey Kahne earned his first victory with Hendrick in the Coca-Cola 600.
Earnhardt brings his bewildering 141-race winless drought into Sunday's stop at Dover International Speedway. He is seeking his first win on the 1-mile track since 2001. He did post a third-place finish in the May race last season, but otherwise failed to finish better than 20th in four of the last five races at Dover.
