Today was another solid day for Dale Jr. Had it not been for two flat tires, he would’ve finished top ten or better, no question.
After the race, he said he was frustrated—he wants a win and felt they had a chance at it today.
I really feel he will win—he’s so dang close. I like to think it will happen when and where it’s meant to happen. Maybe it will be at Texas or maybe at a restrictor plate race where he’s Yoda Dale.
Wherever, whenever it will be, it will happen, I really have no doubt, none.
Although NASCAR has him 8th in points, he’s tied with 6th ranked Kyle Busch and 7th ranked Matt Kenseth, so it’s basically a three-way tie for 6th in my book.
Now, a Redskins win would totally start his week off on a good note. The problem? They’re playing the Dallas Cowboys. Sigh. Well, Monday night will be one of those times where I will have to look on the bright side if the Cowboys lose.
Any given race can drastically change the course of this chase. That’s the thing about racing, you just never know.
Next week is the Monster Mile. Let’s take ’em out and knock ’em down.
