I thought the Junior Rule was Thou Shalt Not Wreck Junior Out of A Race, Lest Ye Lose Your Ride and Career.

No, it’s doesn’t make me wonder. Jr. was complaining all year about power. So they gave him power with the trade-off of reliability. What was the largest factor in Jr missing the chase? DNFs due to blown engines. He suffered due to his own whining ways and poor skill, meanwhile Truex made the chase.

I’m sure DEI pulled their engineers off JR’s team and put it on Truex’s. Backs my theory up that JR’s had a 1st place ride this whole time. In our circle we call it the Daddy’s Champion’s Provisional. In all honesty I don’t like JR. But I really feel sorry for him going to a crap ride. I think hendrix is just gonna throw him in crap cars and collect the merchendising money. IMHO.
