- The only driver without a top 10
- The worst starting average (31)
- The fewest lead lap finishes (12)
- Of course, fewest points scored (2,979)
Interestingly enough, Menard was able to improve his finishing position by an average of four places over his starting position. That’s the second-best improvement of all the people on this list. So, he has that to hold onto.
Special kudos go to A.J. Allmendinger, who managed to go the whole year without leading a single lap. Good job not pushing it.
Michael Waltrip retired from driving full-time at the end of the season. Surprisingly, he was NEVER able to win a FLOPPER title. He missed races in three of the last four years, and that’s what held him back.
Now the question becomes, who will win the FLOPPER in 2010? Anybody have a guess? Venture them below in the comment section.
