Top Ten Reasons the FANS Think Dale Jr. Is Running So Well This Year

_For this week’s Top Ten, I did a little something different. I posted the topic on Facebook (on my page and the Frontstretch Writers page) and let the fans come up with the list! That’s not saying I didn’t fine tune a few submissions, but for the most part, if you don’t like the list, be mad at your peers, not me!!_

Could Kasey Kahne possibly be intimidating Dale Jr. or is there something else behind his improved performance this season?

*10.* DW can’t have a man crush on a married man, so Junior’s back in favor over Kyle.

*9.* Doesn’t want his nephew, Jeffrey to catch him in the racing stats.

*8.* Suddenly realized that all the 14-year-old girls who rooted for him in 2000 are old ladies in their twenties now and he wants a new crop of irrational defenders.

*7.* Sponsor National Guard threatened to deploy him to Libya if he didn’t improve.

*6.* Now that they are in the same shop, Chad Knaus is crew chiefing both the 48 and 88.

*5.* He’s only falling to 10th place at the end of the race instead of 20th.

*4.* Intimidated by Kasey Kahne.

*3.* It’s a sign that the end of the world is near.

*2.* Doesn’t want to compete for Tommy Baldwin Racing.

*1.* He’s not doing better; Kyle Busch is doing worse.
