It has risen alright.... from the ashes of a poor year.. if there is anytime to rise from the ashes..it is now! It is not only Tony doing his part to be there at the end.. but a big hand has to be given to the pit crew that just doesn't quit! 13.3 sec pit stops and better will always help your chances of being there when it counts.. and those guys are getting Tony where he needs to be.. that is "VICTORY LANE BABY"!!!
Here is my nick name for the pit crew ... "Champion killers" .. if they and he.. keep working as hard as they can.. and don't get down if something doesn't work out like at Bristol.. the Championship is his to win! GO GET'em TONY!
