He has a little more competition this year though. JG would probably love to secure another Championship considering the problems he's been having with his back.
TS is out for blood so to speak this year. I think him and JJ might go head to head which would make a great chase.

Anybody that doesn't think JJ won't be a factor in the chase hasn't been watching for the last 3 years. The 48 team knows when to bring their A game and I'm sure Tony would never count him out.

No doubt he be a factor. Just reminding some that a few other drivers will probably "Bring It" during the chase.

I totally agree. Altho I'm still thinking we can't count Jeff out yet. It could be any one of the three best drivers in Nascar. But I would love to see Tony and JimmieJ go head to head.

What does this have to do with this thread? If you want to talk politics or for that matter racism why not chose the correct forums?

Yes he is, cuz hes won 3 titles in a row. It doesnt matter how many races Smoke has won this year, 3 Cups in a row beats 2 wins in 3 races.

Racing is strategising. All teams do it. ergo-Joey L. winning on a rain call by Zippy making a strategy call.
