It appears that these guys will try the full schedule again in 2011. This traditionally has not worked for them. Even when David Pearson was winning with this team, they did not run the entire schedule. Since they have scaled back with Bill Elliott, they have had better results. That works for a while if you have a guy like Bill behind the wheel. However, Bill will not live forever. Eventually, they will have to replace him. There are not that many guys, if any, who will go for a part-time schedule. This is probably why they want to go for that in 2011 and not this year. We shall see how this works.
