Here are some interesting nuggets since Bobby Labontes last victory in 2003. For a driver I idolized in the late 90?s, I really hope these stats can be erased next weekend at the Coke 600.
The last time Bobby won a race?.
-Joey Logano was 13 years old
-Matt Kenseth had just won his first and only Winston Cup
-Jimmie Johnson has zero championships and only 6 wins (this is the one I find most interesting)
-Bobby?s last win was also Winston?s last race with NASCAR
-The Chase did not exist
-Tony Stewart was defending his first Cup title
-Stewart had only 17 wins
-Larry Foyt was racing
-This marked the last time Bobby finished top 10 in the final point standings
-Ironically, this was also the final time for his brother, Terry to finish top 10 in points. 2003 was the year of Terry?s final win as well.
-Jamie McMurray won rookie of the year
-Bill Elliott had just run his final full-time season
