Yes I said it, a run for the championship!

This team has the potential to do that, they’ve had a top five car all year long .

In seven races this year if they’re aren’t being wrecked or blowing engines they are running top five.

The No.42 team made the statement they needed to make at Phoenix.

They are a serious contender for this championship.

Going forward this team needs to take the same road they did last year , points , points and more points.

Points racing has to be the teams order for the season, of course a few wins will give them extra points for the chase.

Those bonus points are needed as a live line in case of a bad race in the chase.

Top fifteens in the next ten races with a few top five mixed in there will get this folk in the top twelfth by June.

Look for Indianapolis to be a win ( if NASCAR doesn’t screw him again) and his second win of season will be one of the road course.

Phoenix will prove to be a game changer for Brian Pattie and Juan Pablo Montoya , there has been plenty of wrecks for this team this season, I guess is good to get them over early in the season.

Just an observation, isn’t grand when one can stay out of the cheap seats -P14 to P-30-, no body collects you in a wreck, nothing bad happens.

Go figure.

Great job and congrats to the No.42 team.
