So, going on to an 18-year NASCAR Cup Series career with two Daytona 500 wins is more than he ever expected by a long shot, and he's satisfied with ending that career now. Earnhardt made his first career Cup Series start on May 30, 1999, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Paul Millsap had 29 points and 14 rebounds for his second straight double-double and Atlanta led wire-to-wire in beating Washington in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference playoff series.
