CONGRATULATIONS TO PAUL MENARD, YOUR 2009 FLOPPER AWARD WINNER

 By starting his car at Sunday's race in Homestead, Paul Menard took home the 2009 FLOPPER (Finishes Last in Overall Points while Participating in Every Race) award. Much like his counterpart at the top of the standings, there wasn’t much doubt who was winning the hardware going into the final weekend of the season. The title was Menard’s to lose - and it proved to be the only thing he did not lose this season. Mr. Menard follows in the footsteps of legendary drivers like R ...

PAUL MENARD, YOUR DESTINY AWAITS

Following Sunday's race in Phoenix, Paul Menard takes a commanding 164-point lead in the FLOPPER (Finishes Last in Overall Points while Participating in Every Race) standings going into the final race of the year. So he has that going for him. Some notes of interest:1) Menard actually has fewer points than David Stremme, who has missed the last two races of the year.2) Menard is the only driver on this list with ZERO top-10 finishes this season. 3) The max difference between first and 43rd is ...

MENARD PROBABLY NEEDS TO SKIP A RACE TO LOSE FLOPPER AWARD

The FLOPPER Award picture has cleared up considerably following last week’s race in Texas. My notes with two races to go:1) If Paul Menard leaves Phoenix more than 161 points behind the next driver, he will clinch the award. And people say Jimmie Johnson has made the Chase boring.2) David Stremme lost his ride to Brad Keselowski, so he's not in the running for the title anymore. Remember, you need to complete every single race to be in contention for the FLOPPER (Finishes Last in Overall P ...

FLOPPER STANDINGS: JOHNSON NOT ONLY DRIVER RACING AWAY WITH A TITLE

After Sunday's very early wreck at Talladega, Paul Menard (pictured above) is running away with this year's FLOPPER award. His lead now rivals Jimmie Johnson's at the top of the Sprint Cup standings. Big congratulations to former FLOPPER contender Jamie McMurray who won the race this weekend. He had been in the standings consistently through two races ago. After four straight finishes of 28th or worse, McMurray took sixth at Martinsville and won Talladega. McMurray now has two of his three ca ...

EARNHARDT JR. ENTERS FLOPPER RACE

Paul Menard has extended his FLOPPER lead, but that’s not the big news in the FLOPPER (Finishes Last in Overall Points while Participating in Every Race) standings this week. The big news is that Dale Earnhardt Jr. has cracked the top 10 after his disastrous race in Martinsville. It appears that the crew chief switch has not helped. As promised last week, I have provided a look at how much money each FLOPPER driver has made, and how much that actually comes to on a per-lap and per-mile ...
