Jr was going to drop in the points anyways. The lack of talent will keep in down in the standings.

its always someone elses fault, maybe if jr would have qualified better or, not have lost so many spots he would have been ahead of that

It's really pathetic watching those POS COT on road course; they can't even keep them on the track.

Jr is so out of shape he can't physically handle a long race on a road course. NASCAR might have to get rid of them; or make them a non=points race.

But if you just go back a few I stated that jr is one bad race away from falling out of the chase. Jr is historically bad on road courses. Kurt bush all but locked up a chase spot this weekend. Only 4 chase spots left...

Those A$$CAR COT boxes look hilarious while they are leaning and alomost rolling over trying to get through a real track (road course)- what a joke! ol Joooooooonnnnnnyyyyyyyyyrrrrrr r's meager driving skills just aren't enough to turn in two directions. He can only handle that lazy racing of round and round and round. In fact, the easiest of all racing (plate races) are the only place this guy can get it done - with a little help from the A$$CAR management team and that "special plate".

And here's your 41st place finish. Interested to see how the points will shake out today.
Jr dropped to 7th, it was no surprize to see him not do well at Sonoma. Most of us knew this was a pivitol race for the 88 team. He needs a win or just have good finishes to make the chase. Thanks for your explaination, the way NASCAR is constantly changing its really not that fan friendly. But its my favorite sport so just have to deal with it. Have a nice day.

Well it's kind of hard to have a good finish when that retard Tony Stewart wants to play God and decides to punish Brian Vickers not even halfway through the race. I really believe that Jr would have finished at least a little bit better than 41st. Sheesh.

Well duh, but i think the momentum has changed, his best tracks are behind him, and now he is going to overdrive the cars trying to remain in chase contention and knock himself out. Bad luck at daytona, stick a fork in jr.

I'm not a Jr fan by any means but I hope Tony at least gave him a reach around.

I believe there is a better chance Jr. Will be working for Domino's delivering Pizza before the year is over...Probably in a pink firesuit flammer!
