When you are the guinea-pig for the 48,24 and the 5 car for HMS racing you don't have a chance.

He doesn't have much talent. Plain and simple.

Father was killed in cup car, DEI teammate Steve Park became all but disabled in a Cup car, JR was burnt in a road race Corvette crash. He does not have the ambition or attitude he once had. He seems to be better suited as a team owner than a driver.
Stepping out of the drivers seat may happen soon - right now the paychecks are too good to let go..

He's not the guinea pig for HMS. If he was, none of the other teams would be running nearly as well as they are: Jr's feedback is limited to what makes him feel comfortable, and not what makes a car fast.

Jimmy Johnson is all that matters at HMS and I'm glad Nascar called Jimmy out on the re-start and said no more cheating.

Wait till he goes to Childress and gets in the 3 car, NASCAR will make sure he wins a championship.
