What's Dale Jr.'s Problem?

As the Auto Club 500 rolls into its second half, Dale Earnhardt Jr. just picked up the free pass to get back on the lead lap.

Earnhardt Jr. had driven up to 18th place but then was caught speeding entering pit road. He fell back to 30th place after the penalty and was lapped.

But his fans have been wondering today: What gives?

Earnhardt Jr. was supposed to be much improved this season, and Fontana is the first big test. Instead, it just looks like the same old – at least so far.

Who do you blame? Lance McGrew? And if so, is McGrew worse than Tony Eury Jr.?

We’d like to know what Dale Jr. fans are thinking.
