With the end of the 2010 season coming to an end very soon, could 2011 be the year that Dale Jr. finally comes into contention for his first nascar championship? Dale Jr. has only won 1 race since joining with Hendrick Motorsports back in 2008, and no matter what changes seem to be made at Hendrick Motorsports nothing seems to be helping Dale Jr. become any closer to winning races and becoming competitive like all the other drivers who are currently driving in nascar.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. seems to try his very best week in and week out, but he just can’t seem to get the whole package together to win any races. Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be going into his 4th year with Hendrick Motorsports in 2011, and Dale Jr. has only won 1 race during his time with Hendrick Motorsports, Rick Hendrick has tried making changes to help improve the chances of the most popular driver in Nascar but yet nothing seems to be changing. I myself think that Dale Jr. needs to get Tony Eury Sr. back as his crew chief because Tony Eury Sr. was the only crew chief that Dale Jr. had that wouldn’t put up with Dale Jr’s complaining all the time, and I think that that could be the missing link in the puzzle because Dale Jr. is working with people that he isn’t comfortable working with and there is a communication problem between Dale Jr. and Lance McGrew who is Dale Jr’s current crew chief, and it is causing problems with Dale Jr’s ability to perform on the race track.
If Rick Hendrick would bring Tony Eury Sr. over to Hendrick Motorsports as Dale Jr’s crew chief at the end of this season and let Tony Sr. be Dale Jr’s crew chief for the upcoming 2011 season, things would improve alot and the nascar fans and Dale Jr. fans would see their most popular driver back in contention again winning races. Dale Earnhardt Jr. for whatever reason is in a terrible slump, and somehow Rick Hendrick or someone needs to find away to get Dale Jr. back into the spirit of racing and competing again because right now Dale Jr. just isn’t having any fun and he isn’t happy with his current situation. Race fans I honestly believe that somehow between now and the beginning of the 2011 season that Rick Hendrick will find away to get Dale Jr. out of his slump, and then look out nascar fans because everything is going to change for the better and everything in the world of nascar is going to improve with ratings, ticket sales, and everything else because once nascars most popular driver starts winning races again you know that the whole world will be watching nascar again because there is an Earnhardt winning races again..
Everyone knows that Dale Jr. can drive and be competitive and once Dale Jr. shakes that monkey off his back and starts winning races again it will just be a matter of time before the most popular driver in nascar racing wins his first championship. Once Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally wins his first championship, the world of nascar will never be the same because every time Dale Jr. does something big in nascar the whole world starts watching.
