CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s losing streak has
reached 103 races, and he's no longer guaranteed an automatic berth in the upcoming $1 million All-Star event.

His last shot to qualify before the May 21 race comes Sunday, at
Dover International Speedway. A victory there would be his first
since 2008 and earn him a coveted spot in the Sprint All-Star race.

Should Earnhardt fail to win this weekend, he still has two
different chances to get into the All-Star race. The winner of the
last-chance Sprint Showdown advances into the main event, as well
as the winner of a fan vote.

Earnhardt is NASCAR's eight-time defending most popular driver,
but he says he's not taking the fan vote for granted and wants to
race his way into the All-Star event.
