Don't look now, but Dale Earnhardt Jr., already one of the most dangerous drivers in the NASCAR field, is quickly stringing together the best start of his 17-year pro racing career.    And with four top 10 finishes in the 2013 season's first four race, the sport's most popular driver could be headed for the prize that's most eluded him most — a NASCAR Sprint Cup series championship.

While in Las Vegas to do battle in the Kobalt Tools 400 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway earlier this month, Earnhardt not only joined fellow AMP Energy athletes Urijah Faber and Scotty Lago to do burnouts on the Vegas Strip, he also took a few minutes to talk with CraveOnline's Nash Herrington about the current NASCAR season, the big changes with the introduction of the new Gen-6 cars as well as his epic backyard ranch at his home just outside Charlotte, NC.
