Finally!! Maybe some variety in the
outcomes, during season and post-
season, will help fill seats and boost
TV ratings a little.

Hendrick Motorsports top driver is
88 Bowman at 14th, then
9 Elliot at 15th, then
24 Byron at 18th, and finally
48 J Johnson at 21st.
I know it is still early, but I'd think
some serious options need to be considered.
Qualifying at Bristol:

Bowman-Gray 8th
Byron 11th
Elliott 16th
Johnson 17th

One might argue that there is starting to be a pattern.

You mean like all Hendrick cars and drivers fit
in the second Quintile of Monster Cup quality.

Not the top & the best = 100%,
but all between 60 to 80%
Quintile may refer to:
In statistics, a quantile for the case where the sample or
population is divided into fifths
(Fairly close to fits right.)

Actually I meant that Johnson was last amoung the Hendrick
drivers, but you make a good point. The overall Hendrick
results are likely due to the new body to some extent (altho
that shouldn't be too big an issue, since they've been using
Camaro bodies on their Xfinity cars for a while).

Just for fun:

- Daytona race quals
Bowman Bowman
Byron Johnson
Elliott Byron
Johnson Elliott

- Atlanta Race Quals
Elliott Bowman
Byron Johnson
Bowman Byron
Johnson Elliott

- Las Vegas Race Quals
Johnson Elliott
Bowman Johnson
Byron Byron
Elliott Bowman

- Phoenix Race Quals
Elliott Elliott
Byron Bowman
Bowman Byron
Johnson Johnson

- Fontana Race Quals (*)
Johnson Bowman
Bowman Byron
Byron Elliott
Elliott Johnson

- Martinsville Race Quals
Bowman Bowman
Elliott Johnson
Johnson Byron
Byron Elliott

- Ft Worth Race Quals
Byron Johnson
Elliott Bowman
Bowman Elliott
Johnson Byron

(* this was the race NASCAR f'd up qualifying inspection)

So, you'd have to be a better statistician than me to make
anything of that data. Altho I think it says Bowman is
having the best season of the 4 so far.
