Dale Earnhardt Jr. was strangely subdued after his latest victory at Talladega Superspeedway.
"I'm worried about losing some points," said Earnhardt, who moved into the series lead by 13 points over Kurt Busch, who finished fifth Sunday.
Asked about the significance of his fifth victory at Talladega, Earnhardt said, "It don't mean s--- right now. Daddy's won here 10 times."
In February at Rockingham, NASCAR president Mike Helton told drivers to watch their language on radio and television. Less than a month later, Johnny
Sauter was fined $25,000 and docked 25 points after cursing during a radio interview following the Busch Series race in Las Vegas.
