Top 10 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!!

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 20s 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.
