Quote of the week.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. on why he had to change an engine and start from the back in yesterday’s Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway:

“I made a mistake. We ran a qualifying lap and when you cross the finish line you bump it out of gear, which is what I’ve done every time I’ve run a qualifying lap — however many of those I’ve ran,” Earnhardt said. ”In practicing mock runs, I bumped it out of gear and it went in third and (over-revved) the engine way over. The valves and the piston had a little party and they all ended up with a hangover.”
