Dale Earnhardt Jr. enters the 2012 season with a stunning 129-race winless streak. Earnhardt Jr. won in his first season with Hendrick Motorsports in 2008, but has not returned to Victory Lane with the organization. He made the Chase in 2011, his first season working with crew chief Steve Letarte, and the team challenged for wins over the course of the season. Look for them to take the next step this season. Earnhardt Jr. will snap that winless streak. He’s particularly strong on restrictor-plate tracks, so look to those for his best chance to overcome the barrier. That winless streak will not last the season. —Lee Spencer and Rea White
