BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended a 143-race winless streak in NASCAR's top division when he took the checkered flag at Michigan International Speedway.

Earnhardt's win came almost exactly four years to the day after his last trip to Victory Lane in a Cup race. That also was in Michigan on June 15, 2008. Earnhardt pulled away over the final 25 laps of the 400-mile race and crossed the finish line well ahead of Tony Stewart.
