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:

#31-Jeff Burton 19th -120

(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.

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!
