Wang you so silly! Dale has not proven anything to us in a long time but we also know he has more issues than just the alleged lack of skill. Just so happens, he seems to be over those issues according to recent results.

If he has a lack of skill, he'd have plummeted out of chase contention in 5 races. If it was not gelling with a crew, feeling sorry for himself, lack of skill, can't get any breaks, whatever excuse previously mentioned, NOTHING would carry a top 5 points run this deep into a season.

We may as well face it - his slump days must be over; He's seated comfortably in the points at 3rd, and 6th place is twice as far back from the lead as he is- another 19 pts back. This wasn't a fluke by any stretch, we're 8 races in. Even if he later proves to be 7 positions worse, he's still top 10, a step above mediocre.

All he's gotta do now is remain half-ass consistent and he'll land his chase spot for 2011 and probably top-5 it.

Thanks for your input Alpine, I couldnt have said it better. but its the same ol same ol with Jrs haters. If he would win the Championship this year they would say NASCAR fixed it. The haters aint man enough to admit Jrs doing mighty fine in 2011. They are the jackassess that cant handle the truth now. They can have that biased opinion, its their right, but reality is slappin them in the face and they cant stand it. Jr and 5 time worked together really well at Dega. Id say it takes a great amount of "skill" and "talent" to achieve what he has so far this year!!

I agree that he's doing well this early in the season, but only 8 races in is not very deep when there are still around 18 or 19 races left before they are locked in. Time will tell.

Sounds about right.. One finish of 40th and Jr is out of the top 10. Right now only harvick is "locked" (it's very improbable that two drivers ranked 11th to 25th are going to win more than two races, should he fall out of the top ten)

Looking at the schedule, there are some tracks coming up that dale and hendrick historically run extremely well at. Richmond, Dover, Charlotte, I'd expect the #88 to be in victory lane at one of these races.

This deep into the season....8 races (roughly) a third of the "regular" season....is deep?

Slump days over....may be wishful thinking.

How soon some forget....do you recall 2008?

Jr. was in the same position then as he is now (third in points after Talladega).

Yes he made the chase and yes he had a good season, but he finished dead last in the chase and then 2009 and 2010 seasons happened so to say his slump days are over is short sighted at best.

Let's not forget he now has EVERYTHING that was JG in 2010.

So is it Jr. or is it what he's been handed?

Jr has put together a few good runs in a row early in the season, hence the the current high points position. Consistency wins in the current format. I wouldnt use the term "deep" into the season until at least mid-august.

Logically, everyone else had the same 8 races to show what they have, and they all have the same # of races left. No matter how deep they are, the data reads Jr: 3rd in points. Unless it's a team known for extreme late-season surges towards securing a chase spot, that's the only data that matters.

LOL Mr Enlightenment... One finish of 40th for ANYONE is going to be a big hit, so again - more logic that applies to every driver doesn't suggest he's less likely to be exactly where the data says he is: 3rd in points.

What happens from here, nobody knows. It can go either way. If we knew for sure where everyone would end up, they wouldnt need to run the races. Until then, its all just speculation.

Another flip-flop response from the un-intelligent. Just a moment ago you were saying we were "deep in the season" and the "slump was over". Now its something different? Pick an opionion and stick with it! or do you just like to argue for sake of arguing..when you really dont know (or really understand) what the arguement is about?

Code of the troll...

I have in no way varied my perspective or opinion, and yet, you somehow interpret my comments as though I did so you have something to argue about. I see...

...so how's that working out for you?

For the past several years, Jr fans have been told that he is sub par driver because he could be competitive even in the best equipment. When fan questioned the equality of the equipment, they were told that ALL Hendrix teams/equipment are created equal, it is the driver who makes the difference.

I find it puzzling that now that #88 is housed with #48 and the #88 has the crew of the #24, there is a lot more success. It makes me question if things are as truly equal as many thought in the Hendrix camps.

I guess it boils down to this....those who said Dale could not be successful because he was a bad driver in the best equipment, may just have to rethink their theory because a change in equipment has certainly made a difference this year.

There's a personnel change too, though. Not just equipment. Maybe LeTarte has a better instinct for interpreting Dale's language
