Is time running out for the No. 42 team?

After reading an article where Montoya apparently did not know where he is in the standing , I thought it would be appropriate for one of the No. 42 biggest fan to remind him.

Your sitting in the twenty-fifth spot son!

The fat lady is about to sing !

The chase dreams could be over soon!

Since Phoenix is a night race it may be more appropriate to quote Monday Night Footballs old cowboy Don Meredith “Turn off the lights the party is over”

That could be their song of the week , when the lights shut down in Phoenix Saturday night the No. 42 team most have at least a the top fifteen finish and gain a couple of spots in the standing.

A DNF or a back forty finish might just mark the end of this teams chase hopes.


Not all is gloom and doom for this team, It should be easy for Juan Pablo Montoya and Brian Pattie to gain at least a couple spots in the standings.

No. 00 and No..19 are in the two spots above Montoya, they had a terrible qualifying effort Friday night, Montoya should beat both of them Saturday night.

No. 42 is about 50 points from the top 20, getting there in one race might be a little ambitious but a top five may get them there.

This team has to be feeling the pressure, there is no room for error and is irrelevant if the error is self inflicted or someone else’s fault , it doesn’t matter, the result is the same.

This is a sink or swim race, the Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing team must run well at Phoenix.

Saturday nights race , in a humble fans opinion, is an elimination race for Brian Pattie and Juan Pablo Montoya.

No finish, no chase.

Period! Could not be simpler.

And as always is just a fans opinion and from what I understand every body has one and I thank God for that.

Enough said.
