    Still, my enthusiasm is tempered by the gimmicky nature of this new deal. I guess I'll just chalk it it up as a make good for the real championship he won in 2010 that he gets no recognition for. Now I can call him a one time Champion and mean it
    Let's not forget if it wasn't for Marcus Ambrose who knows what would have happened in 2011 when he would have had the points lead by likely more than 10 with three races left. We know they took chances at Texas and Phoenix to make them look worse than they really were.
    the drought is over--may there never be another with 115 races.
