TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. knows exactly what strategy he needs at Talladega Superspeedway.
He needs to go for broke and get a win.
His championship hopes fading, Earnhardt is among a handful of drivers who believe Sunday's race could be the one that lifts them back into title contention. There's some separation in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field, and three drivers at the front are pulling away after three races.
Earnhardt is seventh in points and knows chipping away probably won't get the job done. He's 39 points behind leader Brad Keselowski, with Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin keeping pace at the front.
Earnhardt said Talladega is a track where he can be aggressive and race for a victory.
