    Clint gets no love.

    I didnt't say to put in him in your lineup.

    But is he really deserving of 2%? I think not.


    Hear me out here.........

    He has the longest active race finish streak of 76 and has only been in 109 cup races. He assumed this record after his teammate Kevin Harvick, who owned it previously, lost it at California. So what does this tell me? It tells me that:
    1) RCR engines are probably this most dependable out there- something that Yahoo users might be interested in after Vegas where Carl, Matt, JJ, and Martin all had engine issues (but yet all are on many more rosters). .
    2) Clints a racer- he can race on almost all kinds of tracks, never gets in over his head, people are comfortable racing with him, his racing style is well respected, and he is always there at the end.

    So maybe not dominant, but he is certainly worth more than a 2% selection, oh did I mention he is 2nd in points right now with that team that is "gelling."

      Being dependable and finishing in the top five will not give me or anyone else the highest point total at the end of the year. RCR might be somewhat dependable but the truth of the matter is they can't find that one step to take them to where they really want to be and that is winning more then being dependable. Being dependable is just a cop out for "we can't get the job done good enough to win". I agree Clint has a lot of talent he won the Nationwide series last year, but until one of those drivers step it up and actually win a Sprint Cup championship, I don't think you will be seeing too many people "showing their love".

      • Again, he is 2nd in points and is on 2% of rosters. Its just odd is all, and I thought I would point it out. I understand why people don't pick him, its not like he is on my roster. But should we reconsider the RCR guys because of their consistency? I think it deserves worth mentioning is all. I just wish yahoo would save 1 RCR guy for the B group, just for fun.

      • Its not only that Daniel, but why don't you take a look at when the RCR engines do win races, they very seldom if ever lead the most laps. As a matter of fact the majority of the time if they win they win it in the final laps, and usually win it over the guy who led the most laps that race. I would much rather have Jimmie Johnson on my roster, whom started the race on the pole, led the most laps, and finished second, then an RCR driver that won the race, started 30th and only led 5 laps. Seems logical to me, but that is what I find, the only different scenario seems to me would be Bristol.

    • damn skippy Dan.....Bowyer is a very consistent driver, and like you said never gets in over his head....you never see him overdrive his car trying to win, when he has a 5th place car. He's happy taking 5th.....

      people are just overlooking him (including myself) the guy flies under the radar very well and is doing a great job, the entire 33 team is. Cant remember who said this, but they said something along the lines that he was more agressive in the 07 car......the fact he is offto his best start ever, with a brand new team no less, has me completely disagreeing with that statement.
