A Look Back Through Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Career

With success on track, combined with taking the sport to new levels away from the speedways, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has left his impact on NASCAR.

A two-time NASCAR XFINITY Series Champion with 26 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victories to his credit, he proved that he could get the job done behind the wheel. However, his down-to-earth personality brought out a legion of fans, as showcased with 14 Most Popular Driver Awards.

After spending the past 17 years in NASCAR’s top division, Earnhardt is set to take step away from the driver’s seat as the 2017 season will mark his last full year behind the wheel.

Here’s a glance back through his career highlights.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Leading 106 laps, Earnhardt scored his first career victory at Texas Motor Speedway.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

It did not take long for Earnhardt to get his first pole award, coming in the 12th race of his rookie campaign in 2000 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca Cola 600.

Earnhardt cemented his place as one of the up-and-coming drivers when he became the first rookie to win the All-Star race in 2000.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

After his father Dale Earnhardt died on the last lap of the Daytona 500 in 2001, the sport returned to Daytona International Speedway for the first time in July. Earnhardt Jr. impressed that night, leading 116 laps en route to the victory. The words from Alan Bestwick “using lessons learned from his father” continue to ring through the ears of many fans.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

While his dad cemented a legacy at Talladega Superspeedway, Earnhardt Jr. added to it in style, winning four straight races from October 2001 to April 2003 at the 2.66-mile oval.

Barry Cantrell | NKP

Making the pass on Tony Stewart with 20 laps to go, Earnhardt scored his first Daytona 500 victory in 2004.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

The 2004 season was his most successful on-track, if you look at the win column, with six victories. However, the best year statistically looking at the year-end standings would be placing third in 2013.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Earnhardt shook NASCAR Nation in 2007 when he announced that at season’s end, he would leave Dale Earnhardt Incorporated to drive for Hendrick Motorsports in 2008.

Matthew Thacker | NKP

Pacing 54 laps, Earnhardt scored his second career Daytona 500 victory in 2014.

Russell Labounty | NKP

Throughout his career, Earnhardt was able to claim 26 race victories, with his most recent coming at Phoenix Raceway in 2015.

A Look Back Through Matt Kenseth’s Career

Since making his debut in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 1998, Matt Kenseth has been full throttle ever since, including a series championship in 2003. From making us laugh to intense battles on track, Kenseth has certainly made a lot of memories through the years.

With no plans set for the 2018 season, Kenseth announced a couple weeks ago that the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway would be his final career event. 

Here’s a glance back through his career over the past 19 years.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Kenseth made his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut in 1998 at Dover International Speedway with an impressive sixth-place finish.

In the midst of his rookie campaign in 2000, Kenseth led 32 laps en route to scoring his first career victory in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Kenseth scored his first career pole award in 2002 at Dover International Speedway. 

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Despite only winning a single race in 2003, Kenseth won the championship on the heels of 25 top-10’s. He is largely disputed as the driver who brought forth the chase and playoff formats so champions would no longer be crowned weeks before the finale.

Tyler Barrick | NKP

Leading just nine laps, Kenseth scored his first of two Daytona 500 victories in 2009 in a rain shortened affair.

Michael L. Levitt | NKP

Kenseth is one of a few drivers that can say they won the Great American Race twice, as he was victorious in 2012.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

After driving for Jack Roush for 12 straight full seasons in the Cup Series, Kenseth left the organization at season’s end to join Joe Gibbs Racing for 2013.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Kenseth may have only won a single championship over the years, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t close to repeating the feat. He scored a pair of runner-ups in the standings since then, including 2013 after winning seven races that season.  

Matthew Thacker | NKP

Although known for being respectful on-track, Kenseth had a couple disputes with drivers through the years, including the tackle on Brad Keselowski at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and the memorable payback for Joey Logano at Martinsville Speedway.

Nigel Kinrade | NKP

Kenseth got the opportunity to go out a winner, scoring his 39th career Cup Series victory at Phoenix Raceway in the second last event of 2017.
