Compelling questions … and maybe a few actual answers
On the Erik Jones bandwagon?
On, but not because of this past Saturday night at Daytona. Surely, weve all learned by now that plate-race success doesnt translate to more legitimate tests of team and driver. Were high on Erik literally because of his track record. Remember, last year as little brother to Martin Truex Jr.at Furniture Row, in the final six races of the regular season he put together finishes of 8th, 10th, 3rd, 2nd, 5th and 6th. Only after that, as Truexs No. 78 and the championship run became the teams major focus, Eriks results slipped. And theres been enough decent weeks this year to maintain that warranted promise.
