The only DEI car yet to visit Victory Lane is driven by Dale Earnhardt Jr. New engine rules for the NASCAR Busch Series have forced some teams out of business. There weren't enough cars at the North Carolina Speedway last week for a full field, and they don't expect enough at Saturday's Sam's Town 200.
