NASCAR LOOKING FOR BOOST FROM DANICA & JUNIOR? (IT MIGHT WANT TO KEEP LOOKING)

SI.com’s Tom Bowles throws a big, wet blanket on the exciting new "boys, have at it" era by pointing out that 9 of the 16 races this season have been won by two drivers — Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin. Fear not. Help is on the way. Writes Bowles, "NASCAR’s next hope for a momentum boost now lies in a risky proposition: hoping racing’s duo of Most Popular Drivers, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Danica Patrick, experience summer stock car success." So we have that to look forward to. Because that will definitely happen.
