Dale Earnhardt Jr. looking for second Atlanta win

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is 12/1 to win at Atlanta
Driver: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Hometown: Kannapolis, North Carolina
Age: 40
Resides: Mooresville, North Carolina

Earnhardt Jr Quote on Top-5 at Daytona:
“We had a really fast car -- maybe the best car here. So I had a lot of confidence to keep digging and we got some of those spots back. Just a little disappointed I let the guys down. We should have won the race."

"We are ready to go to Atlanta. It’s going to be a fun year.”

POINTS REPORT: Dale Earnhardt Jr., driver of the No. 88 Kelley Blue Book Chevrolet SS, ranks third in the driver standings. He trails leader Joey Logano by five points after finishing third in the season-opening Daytona 500.

KELLEY BLUE BOOK: Kelley Blue Book, the vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry, will adorn the hood of Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet SS this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

PERSONAL BEST: Earnhardt’s two pole positions at Atlanta tie his personal best at a track. He holds the same number at Michigan International Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. His average finish of 12.3 at Atlanta is his best at any track.

CHASSIS CHOICE: This weekend, crew chief Greg Ives and the No. 88 team will unload Hendrick Motorsports Chassis No. 88-920. This is a brand new chassis that has not been raced.
