Jr has sucked, big time the past several years but has been Mr Consistency throughout the entire 2012 season. Until his broken transmission last weekend, he was the ONLY driver to complete 100% of all green flag laps.
With the points lead, 9-top 5's, 15-top 10's and an average finish of 9.2 shows that he's here to race and win. Over rated, I donít think so!
I understand there are Jr haters & Jr fans (allot more so) and he did inherit allot/most of his fathers fans which is natural in this sport yet nothing wrong with it either. All Jr needs to do is win a couple more races (preferably in the chase) and could very easily be the 2012 NASCAR Champion!
