Optimistic for a good run but the reality is the man isn't much of a qualifier. If he drops out of the top 35, I think he's in big trouble. This weekend will tell us alot. I'm feeling big problems at RGM. I wish they'd the loyal fanbase more informed. Who else is feeling a little slighted??
I don't think falling out of the top 35 is as bigger deal as it would have been (not that want him to fall out) a year or two ago because there are less teams trying to make the show. The # 40 is gone and I can't see the # 49 coming back and doing well either. He will only have to beat really poor teams at most tracks. Having said that the pain of 2005 still hurts when I think back to it !
