Earnhardt’s long road leads to The Glen

Earnhardt Jr. has plenty of reasons to smile, he’s the current No. 1
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start 16th in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen, a track he typically struggles with. But despite the looming final road race of the season, Earnhardt sees himself in an unfamiliar position: first atop the Chase points standings.
“We can take gambles. It is real tight,” Earnhardt said of the top four in points. “We could walk out of here in fifth pretty easily if things were to go bad for us. I know that going in. I’ve prepared myself mentally for all things. You have to.”
Montoya sets a track record in winning pole position

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – Juan Pablo Montoya won the Sprint Cup pole for the Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen International.
Montoya turned a lap around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile layout in 69.438 seconds at 127.020 mph to eclipse the track record of 69.767 seconds at 126.421 mph set a year ago by Kyle Busch. It’s Montoya’s second consecutive pole and ninth of his career.
Busch qualified second, also eclipsing the track record.
Jimmie Johnson qualified third, followed by Brad Keselowski and Marcos Ambrose. Ryan Newman, five-time Watkins Glen winner Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Ryan Truex Jr. and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top 10.
Points leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. qualified 16th.
