And lo, there came a day unlike any other ... at least any other in the last four years.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won a race.

No rain delays. No fuel mileage. No mysterious cautions ... hell, no cautions at all late in the race, matter of fact. Nothing at all to suggest that this was anything but a straightforward, legit, run-what-you-brung beat-the-field victory.

We'll have plenty more of this over the next couple days, of course, but for now ... have at it. Junior fans, revel in the win. Junior haters, time to find a new angle. Fire away, everybody.
