Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 14 top-10 finishes this season have him tied with Jeff Gordon for most on the Sprint Cup circuit. Earnhardt’s nine top-5 finishes also put him at the top of the list, tied with Brad Keselowski. Dale Jr. is currently second in points with 693 after 20 starts so it’s safe to say he’s having a pretty good year thus far, in good or bad cars, depending on who you believe.
