DOVER, Del. -- If Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s finish in Sunday's MBNA 400 at Dover International Speedway looked familiar, let him tell you why:

"This is definitely the kind of day you saw Matt (Kenseth) have last year," Earnhardt Jr. said after rallying to finish third. "He'd be running around in the middle of the pack, and they'd work themselves into a top-five or a top-10 finish."

That's what Earnhardt Jr. and his Dale Earnhardt Inc. team did at Dover -- and what they've done more than once this season.

Earnhardt Jr. didn't lead a lap at Dover and was rarely in contention for the victory. Heck, he rarely was in the top 10, losing a lap to Tony Stewart early in the race and fighting to get it back all afternoon.

But in the end, when it counted, Junior's No. 8 was lightning-fast, and he ripped through the field to chase down the leaders.
