DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. made it clear he's no fan of the current style of restrictor plate racing before he even arrived at Daytona International Speedway.
``I'm not looking forward to going to Daytona, not with the way the drafting is there,'' he said a week before Saturday night's race.
``It's really weird and kinda wrong on some levels to race that way,'' he said the day the track opened.
But if there was any doubt, he ended it after a frustrating 19th-place finish that had his passionate army of fans accusing Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson of sabotaging Earnhardt's chance to win.
``I am really ticked off. It was a foolish ... race. I don't know what to tell you,'' he fumed.
