DOCKED: Dale Earnhardt Jr., 30, lost his first-place standing in the Nextel Cup race and was fined $10,000 by NASCAR on Tuesday for cursing on national television after his victory Sunday in Talladega, Ala. Asked what it means to have won on the track not once but five times, "Little E," as he is called, replied: "Well it don't mean s--- right now, Daddy's done won here 10 times, so I gotta do more winnin'." Earnhardt, whose legendary racer father died in the 2001 Daytona 500, said he will appeal NASCAR's decision. NASCAR docked the popular driver 25 points, putting him in second place with seven races to go toward the season's championship.
