That pairing didn't work that well and Earnhardt fell into a dark place as far as his performance.When Earnhardt went to Hendrick, he was joined by his cousin Tony Eury Jr.because, well, family and business had always mixed. The son of a seven-time NASCAR Cup champion, Earnhardt never attended a Daytona 500 until he raced in one.
