Earnhardt Optimistic At Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. tries not to worry too
much about his winless stretch, which reached three years earlier
this week.

Of course, now he's back in Michigan, the site of his last
victory. There's no avoiding the questions.

The date was June 15, 2008. Earnhardt's fuel-mileage victory at
Michigan International Speedway snapped a 76-race winless string
shortly after he teamed up with Hendrick Motorsports. Since then,
he's raced 107 times on the Sprint Cup circuit without finishing
first.

Despite all that, the popular Earnhardt is a lot more upbeat
these days. Although he has yet to win, he has eight top 10
finishes in 14 races this season, equaling his total for all of
2010.
