Dale Junior offers a bold prediction for Saturday's race

   Apparently fans of NASCAR's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., shouldn't worry he is in a deep points hole in the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

   After completing Saturday's first of two practice sessions, a confident Earnhardt offered a bold assessment of his situation:

   "We're going to win this race. I really got a good feeling about it. This is what we've got to do anyway to try to get further points and try to win the championship. I just got a good feeling," he said.

   "The car's been great all weekend. Attitude's good. Everybody's excited. The team’s working well together. The car’s responding well. The car ran some good laps in practice and felt real good."
