Earnhardt has rebounded from an engine failure and 35th-place finish in the first week of the Chase with a pair of top-10 finishes. He says the last two weeks have been ``really encouraging'' and that he had probably the best two cars he's had all season. He started on the pole and finished second last week at Dover.
During a charity appearance Thursday night at a barbecue joint about five miles from Texas Motor Speedway, Earnhardt said his team is ``swinging for the fences every weekend'' with seven races left.
Earnhardt is 10th in the standings, 57 points behind leader Matt Kenseth going into Sunday's race at Kansas.
