LAS VEGAS (AP) -Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won NASCAR's most popular driver award for the eighth consecutive year.
Earnhardt received the award Thursday at the annual NMPA Myers Brothers Awards luncheon. He is third in most popular driver awards behind the 16 won by Bill Elliott and nine by Richard Petty.
He continues to win the award despite lackluster results on the race track. He's winless over the last two seasons, and finished a career-worst 25th in the final standings last year and 21st this season.
Earnhardt says he appreciates his fan base supporting him despite his lack of production.
The award is sponsored by Hamburger Helper.
