You forget one thing though. Going faster than everyone else is not what wins a championship. Going fast and not wrecking is. A driver who can't keep his corner panels clean won't retain his speed throughout a race which suggests the driver's ability to do that makes him a factor. You think Brad K would be able to do it? No, because he gets overly aggressive and ticks people off. If he was in the Hendrick camp with an abyss, and Chad orchestrating, he'd still have Carl whoopin his lil narrow ass. LOL<quoted text>Face it you can take 43rd place driver right now and put them behind the wheel with chads crew cheifing and ricks money and the same "48 abyss" and win a championship. Jimmies a non factor which is why he is a not respected.
No offence to Brad, I love that kid. And he takes those whoopins like a man!!
