Dale Earnhardt Jr., driving the number 88 National Guard Chevy, and Mark Martin, in the number eight Army car, battle for position on the front stretch of Texas Motor Speedway Sunday. Martin's Army team fought hard all day and finished in eighth place, including picking up two spots on the final lap. Earnhardt started the race on the pole and led the 43-car field for 31 laps, but fell back due to handling issues, crossing the finish line a lap down in twelfth-place.
