Jeff Gordon is 47 points out of first and 21 points behind Matt Kenseth. Put a fork in him. He is done. Too far back.
Matt Kenseth is NOT a lame duck. But he is already 26 pints back. That isn't too much to make up. But a fork in him too that team has been sliding. He is done. May get to the top five though.
Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr have not been real factors the whole year. Mainly Harvick though he has had his moments. I love Happy. But it isnt his year. Truex Jr looks solid. But not good enough to win a championship. They never had a chance.
Greg Biffle disappointed at Chicagoland. He is always tooting his horn about how his team is the best on the 1.5 mile tracks. Not Sunday. Has never won a title. He hasn't been running good since his win at Michigan. He is done.
Dale Jr ran a great race Sunday. For him to be mad at a top ten shows how good of a team he has right now and how good his cars are. He has been the most consistent driver this whole season. Still very much in it to win it.
Clint Bowyer has been solid and has won two races. But solid isn't good enough to win the championship. He isn't going to win.
Kasey Kahne has been fast. But not consistent. I like the guy. But him and the word championship contender just don't go together. No chance.
Denny Hamlin has lacked consistency this year. He hasn't put together more than two top tens in a row. He will win a championship one day. But not this year.
Tony Stewart is where he needs to be.
Jimmie Johnson may whine about Brad Keselowski, but he is also where he needs to be.
Brad Keselowski is still inexperienced. Only Sr and Gordon have won a championship in their first three seasons in Cup. Brad is good. But he is no Gordon or Sr. He will be strong. But won't win.
So by this process of elimination either Jr, Smoke or Johnson will win it.
NW: 7, 31, 3, 11, 60, 88, 12
Trucks: 9, 88, 3, 7, 17, 31
IRL: 10, 11, 12, 26, 3, 38, 27
