There are two Michigan races Poll Addict is right. They're named two different things. One is 3m performance and one is lifelock.

Poor 'ol "Wo Is Me" Mark will run out of gas (figuratively) towards the end of the race for the chase and not make the chase. Then all of his fans will cry (along with him) his same 'ol "woulda and coulda" tune.
But the fact of the matter will be: "didn't".

Bill, hate is not involved in this at all. It's fact. Throwing the 'hate' word around like that is for those who ignore facts and attempt to muddy the issue because they cannot accept facts.

actually you posted no facts but speculations that you claimed would then become fact. you are the snooze fest and i'm weary now too.

fact. he has always (ok spew the exception) run well enough to be in the chase (measured upon current crappy 12 team format).

opinion. he will easily be top 5 in points after 26 races this year.

fact. year to year his luck has been worse than any other modern day cup driver.

Only 2 drivers have made the chase every year since it's inception.

Matt Kennseth and Jimmie Johnson.

Only 3 have made the chase every year they attempted to.

Matt Kennseth, Jimmie Johnson, and Mark Martin.

My bet is Mark makes it for the 4th time in his 4th attempt.

I see you are not far up the road from me. Put your money where your mouth is.

I will take Mark making the chase.

Long time no see. I thought you ran away or something.
Okay truth be told, I did for a while. You can never keep a good woman down for too long though. I see you still have the same charming disposition. ;)
As always a pleasure reading you.(ha ha)

There was life before the chase. Mark has consistently faltered late in the season before the chase began. Bad luck? Oh boo hoo, there goes the "wo is me" Mark fans again. You actually belittle him by throwing out that lame 'bad luck' excuse. He uses that excuse year after year and you also using that excuse shows that you are lame too.

So what? Mark will falter as usual.

Being in Mooresville you should have a better grip on the racing scene to know that Mark will falter. Hendrick is just keeping him around until a better younger gun slinger comes along.
