I am happy to say the least. I am hoping for 1 top 5, 3 or 4 top 10's and a dozen or so top 20's to get him 24th to 26th in points at years end.

This year TBR has better engines and Blaney actually has a teammate in Reuti and vice versa. I see much more coming from this team compared to last year, both will finish in the twenties in points this year.

TBR let me down this year, that's for sure.

I don't understand what happened to TBR this year. They were doing so well last year. Improving week after week... They started the 10 car with support from SHR and it seems they went downhill from that point forward. Sad to see it happen as I was really rooting for them.. Would have loved to see them get up into the top 15-20 in points this year, heck even the top 25. Hopefully next year they will be back to only the 36 car and work their way back up.

I just don't know what happened. The so called SHR support for TBR seems to be letting Tommy collect the winnings Danica earns in her ten races without having to spend a dime but otherwise I can't see any SHR support can you?

TBR needs two cars, one as the competitive car and one as the S and P funding car.

I see your point with the s&p car but they were improving with just the 36 last year. It seems like this year both cars have been running really crappy. I don't know if they just don't have enough people to put extra attention on at least one car or what. I was really expecting major improvements this year especially with the SHR connections. Hopefully 2013 will show improvement again.

I see what you're saying about the s&p funds but both cars have run really crappy this year. I don't think they have the resources/personel to run two cars even with one of them being a s&p. I think Tommy got screwed with the SHR deal. Thank goodness Blaney got himself into the Daytona 500 otherwise they would be in even worse shape.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think TBR only has two top 20 finishes all year long right?

Last year the #36 and part time #35 (when anyone but Bodine was in the car) did fairly well when they both ran the distance in the same event but the #10 and #36 this year for the most part finish sub 30th place if both run. It could be the so called sophomore blues catching up to TBR but truthfully who knows?

Blaney still has it, if he got into a top tier ride I believe he would find victory lane.
