I dont like the writer of this article's attitude toward Hornish or Penske and he got alot of things wrong in this column. First off, he said that Kurt Busch had to qualify on speed each week, however, he forgot to mention that Kurt Busch was the most recent champ who would get the champ provisional so he was a guarantee lock for the first five races, as Tony Stewart will use this year. Second off, at the end of his article when he said that the top 35 rule was to reward those who compete each week of the Nascar Cup season, and Sam Hornish Jr was there every week trying to qualify in when he fell out of the top 35.
I think it worked out well, Davis gets financial rewarded for his work of his team last year, not only does Penske, Mobil One, and Sam Hornish get their car locked in for the first five races, but Penske gets the rights to the 22 number which will fit well with his team so everyone comes out a winner, not to mention i think it could help in aiding Penske to switch to Toyotas next year, which i believe he will with how Dodge's future is looking.
I will say though, Hornish Jr will continue to struggle until Penske gets him a well established crew chief. I think he should've went after Jimmy Elledge or Donnie Wingo, or his best option in my opinion would've been to move Hornish to the 12 car after Newman left as it was a more established ride and Roy McCauley is a pretty good crew chief.
