Dale Earnhardt Jr. was within a half-mile of breaking a 104-race drought when his gas tank ran dry on the final lap of a green-white-checkered-flag finish in Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. KevinHarvick powered past Earnhardt off Turn 4 and took the checkered flag for his Sprint Cup Series-leading third victory of the season and his first points victory at the 1.5-mile track. David Ragan ran second followed by Joey Logano, Kurt Busch and AJ Allmendinger. Earnhardt coasted across the finish line in seventh place behind Marcos Ambrose in sixth.
