Dale Earnhardt Jr., who has had trouble winning races for the past two years, has reclaimed a spot he was accustomed to win he was a winning driver, the pole position.

He captured the pole position for Sunday’s Daytona 500 with a lap of 186.089 mph during qualifying.

The pole is a big boost to Earnhardt’s confidence, because he is coming off a couple of disappointing seasons.

This Daytona 500 will be bittersweet for Junior. It’ll be the 10-year anniversary of his father’s death at the track in 2001. NASCAR has plans to honor his dad throughout the week.

Earnhardt’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Jeff Gordon, qualified second. 2011 will be the second straight Daytona 500 front row sweep for Hendrick, who put Mark Martin on the pole and Earnhardt #2 last year.

The rest of the field will be set after two qualifying races on Thursday.

Already assured of spots in the field are Bill Elliott, Travis Kvapil, Joe Nemechek and Terry Labonte.

Phoenix International Raceway will undergo the first major track paving project in 20 years after the first two 2011 Sprint Cup races later in February.

Construction will be concluding in September.

The raceway’s second NASCAR race is November 13.

Located in the Phoenix suburb of Avondale, the 1-mile oval will undergo slight configuration changes that track officials hope will increase car speeds and promote more side-by-side racing.

The changes will include a widening of the front stretch, installation of concrete pit stalls and implementation of variable banking so there will be immediate use of two racing grooves.
