7. WALTRIP COULD ADD A 4TH TEAM:
Could we be seeing another repeat of last year’s Chase?? Remember last year when Jimmie Johnson won 4 of the 10 Chase races. Well, Greg Bifle has won the first two back-to-back!!!! Bifle is starting to show the same kind of dominance that Jimmie Johnson’s team showed last year!! He has come from the back of the pack to now be considered a favorite!! The Rousch-Fenway 3M #16 Ford Fusion has really stepped up their game when it counts! The first two races have been on one mile tracks, however vastly different in their configuration. Louden is a FLAT one mile track, unlike Dover which is a highly banked, extremely fast, and a self-cleaning, racing facility!!! It would appear to this reporter that the #16 3M teams has their one mile program where it needs to be. However, do they have the rest of their program fine tuned to the caliber needed to take the championship home!!!! Stay tuned for eight more weekends!!!!
The race for the Chase is slowly “thining out the herd”! It is this reporter’s view that the race has narrowed to nine teams now that have a reasonable chance to capture the championship this year. It appears that the #18 M&M’s JGR team is facing “extinction”! It is also this reporter’s opinion that the #11 FedEx JGR team is on the “endangered species” list! Likewise, the #17 Dewalt Rousch-Fenway team is closely following the previously mentioned teams! All three teams NEED to run exceptionally strong in the final 8 races to have a remote chance to win the championship. In fact, it is time for the “true contenders” to separate themselves from the “pretenders”!!
If you got something for ’em, NOW is the time you got to let the “BIG DOG EAT”!!!!!
THE CHASE STANDINGS:
This week is Kansas and more will face elimination!!!! Who will prevail??? Who will fail????
What do you think?
GETCHA FOUR FRESH GOODYEARS, A FULL TANK OF SUNOCO FUEL, A LITTLE WEDGE, AND MAYBE A SPRING RUBBER. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY…….PULL THOSE BELTS TIGHT ONE MORE TIME, AND LET’S GO RACIN’ BOYS!!!!!
