What can Carpentier achieve after winning pole at New Hampshire?

Matthew JeffrayCorrespondent IJune 27, 2008

So what can the 10 car do this weekend?

He is currently 37th in owner points and had to race his way into the field. Can he challenge for a top five finish. No matter what he achieves this weekend, he will still have to race his way into the show next weekend at Daytona, as the Gillett Evernham car is 298 points off the 35th spot.

Still, he is locked into the Bud Shootout for next season, which will boost his confidence for sure.

What do you think he can do?

His last pole was in a Champ car in 2004 at Laguna Seca. Was this a flash in the pan, or are things looking up for Patrick Carpentier?
