 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Seven-time Cup Series champion Dale Earnhardt and five-time defending champ Jimmie Johnson dominated the discussion on the first day of Speedweeks.
For different reasons, of course.
Earnhardt died a decade ago on the final lap of the Daytona 500, and fellow drivers reminisced Thursday at Daytona 500 media day about the upcoming, 10-year anniversary of that race, as well as the significant safety changes that followed.
Johnson made his Cup debut eight months after Earnhardt's death, and it didn't take very long for him to establish himself as one to watch.
Now, he's the one to beat and says ``everybody is tired of us winning.''
