Dale Jr. is just proving how meaningless it is to make the chase.
It's funny how he is about to make the chase with all these horrible finishes along with many many mediocre finishes. Making the chase isn't an accomplishment, it's just pathetic if you don't make it. Let's say he gets lucky and makes the chase. What does that prove? Nothing.
Dale Jr. has had 0 (ZERO) DNF's so far this year. How can you have no DNF's all year and still finish so low in the points, especially with the greatest team in the sport. Jimmie Johnson has 4 DNF's this year, yet he is 4th in points. Or there is Ryan Newman with 4 DNF's so far, and he is about to pass up Dale Jr.! Ryan Newman is a mediocre driver who rarely drives up front but with 4 DNF's he is still just about to pass Jr. in points. I find it funny how low Jr. is in the points with 0 DNF's.
He sucks, I wish Dale Jr. fans and everyone would just admit it. Dale Jr. had like 2 good years in his long career. He has been around for so many years, always drove for a top team, but still only had like 2 good years. He is not good, never has been good, and never will be good.
I kinda hope he makes the chase, just to show Nascar how much of a joke the chase is.
