If you would have asked me at the beginning of last year that MWR would have folded after this past season, I would have agreed.

I'm glad that MWR is still around and kicking. And they have two cars in the top 35...:)

Now they need to get that 00 car in the chase. I think Reutimann can make the chase and win a race or two this year...:D

I think Rooty Poo is one of the better drivers stuck in bad equipment. But they seem to be getting some better. I would really like to see him be a top 10 driver.

Reut is the best of the team, but it will also be interesting to see what JTG and Marcos Ambrose will do, since they are coming out of the MWR shop.

Canada Eh!
I find myself rooting for David just about every week. As previously stated, he's much better than the equipment he's in but MWR is getting better as time goes.
Are they down to two teams now?
