POS at New Hampshire
Posted in the Michael Waltrip Forum

Bowyer 3rd-never lead a lap-finish position was results of pit stop-Clint has won twice at this track and did ok as expected.
Truex-11th-never lead a lap-Not a factor all day.
Vickers-15th-never lead a lap-not a factor all day.
With 7 races to go until the chase, Bowyer and Truex have 47 and 50 points over 11th place and should make the chase. Then POS can brag how great his team is but they will continue to drive around and have fairly decent finishes. They are not championship material. The number 55 car will not make the chase and no one really expects it to. Martin is collecting a check, Vickers has a few good races but is a fill in driver and we all know what kind of driver POS is. If you don't see what Spencer said about him.
With respect to the NAPA renewal-I don't see how they can continue to stay with POS. Truex is not a winner and surely they want a team who will win races.

Bowyer did lead on lap 235 and gained some pts. He was one of 8 drivers that did lead a lap. Check your facts.
And as for Truex, NAPA has been happy with the results, they have been consistent. Multi year contract to be signed for both Truex and NAPA will be in a couple wks. Vickers and Martin has done a great job in the 55 car. And yes, if all went right, the 55 car could be in the Chase also, it is 12th in owners pts. MWR again could make NASCAR history.
I find it very satisfying to know that MWR is going to be a factor in the Chase this yr. and the haters are piss-in in the wind.

Hey Rocket, you have been drinking way....too....much....Wall-Ban ger Kook-Aid, dude! How-in-the-Hell do you ever figure that #55 (Wet) Dream-Machine would ever make the Chase in 2012? Is POS going to drive it? POS is currently P-41 in Driver's Points and "Mummy" Martin is way back in P-28.
According to Jayski, this morning, here are the current potential "players" in the Chase Wild-Card's:
2012 Sprint Cup Driver Chase Wild-Card Race:
[after New Hampshire, race 19 of 36]
A look at the race for the two wild-card positions for the Chase based on wins and being inside the top 20 in points.
Driver [wins] standings, behind 10th
first two would make the chase as wild cards:
#5-Kasey Kahne [2 wins] 12th -66 points out of 10th
#18-Kyle Busch [1 win] 13th -68
eight other drivers currently in the running for the wild cards:
#39-Ryan Newman [1 win] 14th -77
#20-Joey Logano [1 win] 16th -80
#99-Carl Edwards 11th -46
#27-Paul Menard 15th -79
#24-Jeff Gordon 17th -89
#9-Marcos Ambrose 18th -118
#31-Jeff Burton 19th -120
#1-Jamie McMurray 20th -127
(ties broken by 1sts, 2nds, 3rd, etc)
The Chase: The top-10 drivers will make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Positions 11 and 12 in the 12-driver Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup are Wild Cards, and will go to drivers outside the top 10 with the most wins, as long as they are ranked in the top 20 in points. If multiple drivers outside the top 10 tie for wins, the tie-breaker will go to the race winner with the highest points position.
See drivers championship points standings on the Drivers Points Standings (pdf).(7-15-2012)
You've got to explain to Ol' Wall, just how that (Wet) Dream-Machine will be in the Chase, for 2012.
Please stop drinkin' that Wall-Banger Kook-Aid. That is some really......bad-shit!
BTW, you've got to be....."delusional". ....if you think Cough-man can buy a P-1 in the Chase, this season. "Dick" and "Ol' Wall's Fav. POS Critic" might sneak-in; however, they will not even come close to the top, when Homestead sees the checkered-flag a flying! It will either be Uncle-Jack or Uncle Ricky sitting at the....winner's table.....this season. Bet-on-it!
Buy Ford & Buy American!

I was going by the leaderboard on laps led so if Bowyer led a lap on 235 I stand corrected. I don't know how you know NAPA is happy with the results (no wins). I noticed that you said that Vickers and Martin have done a great job in the 55 car (What about POS). By the way, I don't hate Bowyer, Truex or Vickers-I only "hate" POS. A team owner doesn't make even a decent driver.

Other than Daytona, a couple of weeks ago, where we ALL-agree, POS lucked into that P-9 finish, by running in the back (almost got lapped at one point!) and watching all of the competitive rides wreck, he lucked into that finish!
How about the Daytona 500, where he didn't even make the show?
Dega, POS finished P-19 and was the last ride on the lead lap.
The real "laugher" for Ol' Wall was that P-30 finish at KY and just a mere 5 laps off-the-pace in that Aaron's (Wet) Dream-Machine.
Lisper, could we say that POS is a......."washed-up" hack and needs to totally retire?
Lisper, I think Tom Bowles agrees with us, concerning either the #56 or the #15 winning the Chase in 2012. This is from Frontstretch.com today:
At this point, we’ve mentioned 75% of the Chase field; only Clint Bowyer, Martin Truex, Jr., and Kevin Harvick seem like longshots at this point, unlikely to eke a championship performance out of their B+ seasons. But nine men left, fighting for a title should be more than enough to titillate the excitement of NASCAR nation once the schedule ramps up in September… right?
"Dick" and "Ol' Wall's Fav. POS-Critic"........" longshots"?
Still not reading much about that #55 Aaron's (Wet) Dream-Machine being a.........."longshot ", Lisper!

Being an old fan of NASCAR, I hate the chase. I believe in a championship that counts all the races-not just the last 10. I never have considered road courses true NASCAR and hated that Riverside was the deciding (last) race in the old days. I don't like sucky dogs or waive arounds (but I can live with the waive arounds). The only good rule change was slowing the cars down at the cautions. Look around folks-NASCAR is going down the toilet. Empty seats everywhere and television audiences dropping. I hate short races like the one at Louden. I remember when Dover was 500 laps. The drivers are calling for shorter races. All in all, I am losing interest in a sport where all the cars look alike and everything is changing to "make it more exciting". The France family and their mafia cohorts are killing NASCAR.

Lisper...terrific post! I could not have said it better myself!! I don't mind the short races, but the rest of the remarks you made are right on target! I rather admire David Pearson's quote, "If you ain't cheatin, you ain't trying hard enough" when your car flunks pre and post inspection. Everybody has to be exactly alike. WTF???? Have you ever fallen asleep during a race? I have problems staying awake during the one in California....a real sleeper...

Just for you, I am writing a screenplay called Fun With Dick and Dork!! I think I will have them tormenting Jeremy Mayfinish or something...you gotta stop this Dork stuff! I mean, you don't pick on my son, Kyle Busch, so why pick on handsome David Reutimann? LMAO!!
