Until they are under 10 laps to go the lucky dog can still be awarded.. That's all I'm saying. Go back and check Burton's, Gordon's, Hamlin's, any of the "Cup stars" rookie season and they were "in the way", "needing to park it", "can't run with the big dogs" and all the rest of the bull$hit coming down on Michael McDowell after Martinsville! That's it!! I'm going out right now and buying a Aaron's #00 Lucky Dawg T-shirt!! LMAO!!
