This year already has a  different feel. Junior is fifth in points after two races. He was second at Daytona. Today in Las Vegas he qualified fourth. It just seems with LeTarte as Crew Chief the 88 team is clicking.

Last week, at Phoenix, Dale Jr had a rough day but still finished with a top fifteen. If top fifteens are going to be the rough days I am going to have a good time watching races this year.

I am not going to jinx this by saying Junior will break his win less streak this weekend but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

“In two races so far this season, Hendrick drivers have yet to challenge for the win.
But Sunday’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway could be where the team breaks through. Jeff Gordon starts fourth, Dale Earnhardt Jr. starts eighth and Casey Mears is 11th.
Jimmie Johnson, the three-time defending race winner, was a disappointing 35th in qualifying. But the two-time defending Cup champion said there’s nothing to worry about, yet.
‘We did win a lot of events, lead a lot of laps last year at Hendrick,’ Johnson said. ‘But there were a lot of teams right there on our heels. It’s a little early I think to place judgment in either direction.’”
