Well, I think my man Jeff Gordon is finally falling off the wagon. He just hasn't had any consistency since about 2004. His car is never really good.
On another sad note, Trevor Bayne is out of a job next week in the Nationwide Series. I don't get it. Casey Mears is with a tier 3 team and gets Geico on his car for the whole season, finishes a few laps down every race, yet still has a huge sponsorship in the top series. Yet, a young guy who gets top-10 to top-5 finishes in the Nationwide Series every week and is bringing a former champion Cup team back from the grave can't get a sponsorship or full time ride in any series. Hmm...

Well, this year I wouldn't say it's not
top-notch. MWR has had some really great race cars this year. Truex and Martin have been running in the top 3 in every race. Clint Bowyer has been plagued by bad luck but they're still a young team and I think they'll get out of it eventually. So, even though Mark isn't going for the title, I wouldn't be surprised if he visits victory lane this year.
