On NASCAR America, analysts Dale Earnhardt Jr, Kyle Petty and guest Ryan Blaney each picked the most fun wins they’ve experienced or witnessed.
Petty chose Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s 1998 win in the Daytona 500.
Blaney selected his first Camping World Truck Series win at Iowa Speedway in 2012.
“My mother and father were there,” Blaney said. “That’s pretty cool, your first win in NASCAR and your folks are there. That was really special to me.”
Earnhardt decided on his lone Cup win at Martinsville Speedway in the fall 2014 race at the short track.
“I had been trying to get that win for so long, and the clock, everybody wants the clock,” Earnhardt said. “It’s one of the rare races where there’s such a unique trophy that makes it more exciting to win and more prestigious. It’s a hard race to win. It’s an easy track to have the best car and not win and get beat.”
