Keep in mind...

Tony is just a few points outside the top-20. If they get it turned around and Smoke wins himself a couple races this summer, that puts him in a great position to make the Chase as a wild card. He'd have no bonus points, but he didn't in 2011 either. Lightning might not strike twice, but there is no reason to give up hope yet. This year has been a misery, but don't throw in the towel just yet, y'all.

Re: Keep in mind...

Have you seen anything so far this year that says there will be a turnaround? I'm not panicking yet, I'm just hoping that there are signs pointing up

Though I don't foresee a turnaround happening at this moment, I will say that history is against you michaeljohn.

Re: Keep in mind...

I think at this point I'll have to agree with mj. He's never been this far back in points at this time of the season. That's why they're all asking what's up with SHR this year. There's something missing and I'm not on the bash Steve bandwagon, at least not yet. I'm thinking it's a bit of everything. Who knows, maybe Ryan's bad luck has rubbed off and then again maybe it's the strain of 3 Cup teams and the new car. That's just my opinion but something is definitely wrong...

Re: Keep in mind...

My point is, despite the struggles he's holding right outside the top-20. If they can hit on something and get to running like we know they're capable of, he can crack the top-20 easily and hopefully pick up a couple wins which would put him in a spot to make the Chase as a wild card. Not saying it will happen, just saying there's no reason to give up hope yet. This sport is funny, it can turn on a dime. Tony's fans should know that as well as anybody. Think of '05, Tony wasn't running well for much of the spring/early summer. Then boom, second at Michigan, first at Sonoma, first at Daytona, three more wins in the next five races, and the romp never stopped until he had the trophy at Miami. Granted they were a lot better then than they are now, but the point is that with the wild card, there is still plenty of opportunity for big things to come out of 2013.

I don't even have a towel to throw in :-)

The only way I'd ever give up on Tony is if he gives up on himself

I have a towel, but I will never ever give up on him either.......here is his 2011 championship car from Homestead. If he could pull that off....he can pull anything off. .......... CHALLENGE.....Tony thrives on that.... plus SUMMERTIME IS TONY TIME!!!! He loves a hot and slick race track.

Re: Keep in mind...

Every time I get bummed out from all the negative posted about Tony I get out the DVD of the Homestead race of 2011 and sit and watch every second of it. If Tony can do that once he can do it again. Did Jimmy Johnson know when he signed with Hendricks he'd have 5 championships in his name at this time in his career? Of course he didn't as he was just happy to have a ride. This happens to most drivers as they never know when things will get hot and if they are joined by the right person.
