This is the biggest day of this season for this 42 team, all the usual excuses, too slow, too tight, too loose and bad luck or all the talking point like "we are making progress" won't make a difference.
Reality is that JPM needs to tighten up his belts and drive the hell out of this car, they are in danger of falling into the abyss of the standings, the twenties.
There are many of good drivers on the brink of going up into the top 20, Aric, AJ, J. Gordon and Martin, if that happens is going to be just about impossible for the #42 team to get a shot at a wild card.
Lets be honest folks, as if stands now JPM might need to win two or three races to get a shot at the chase, I don't know if they got that in them.
I hope they can pull a rabbit out of their hat today.
They need minimum a top 10. PERIOD.
