When the caution flag fell just 8 laps from the finish Dale Earnhardt Jr was on pit road for what was to be a gas and go stop. Thinking fast, crew chief Tony Eury Jr called for 2 tires in addition to the fuel.

Win 15
2004 Checker Auto Parts 500
Phoenix International Raceway
Phoenix, AZ
November 7, 2004
With only 5 laps remaining no one seemed to have the horsepower to catch race leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. That's when the trouble began.
The last thing Dale Jr wanted to see was another yellow flag, but when Casey Mears slammed the wall due to a flat tire the caution was out. About the same time Robby Gordon's engine exploded oiling down the track.

"My guys won the race for me," Earnhardt said. "We obviously didn't have the best car today. Matt Kenseth did. I still thought he'd catch me and we'd get beat."
Win 17
2006 Crown Royal 400
Richmond International Raceway
Richmond, VA

The race had been uneventful for Earnhardt up to that point. He had stayed near the front, but was never a serious threat to Harvick until the final pit stop.
