    I just don't think 2 years is enough to show whether you are good or not. Both Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson didn't win their first race until race 99 so Jones is ahead of that. The only difference is Larson and Elliott both racked up a few second places before they won too. Jones has already "switched" teams once (FRR to JGR) there was some transition there even with the alliance. And with the no testing rules in Nascar, development has been slower for young drivers, year 3 seems to be where they really start to mature and compete. Jones, who is in his 3 season with his second team, in my opinion is right on pace to where he probably should be in his career but if he doesn't start to pick up the pace soon the questions will get louder and louder.

    Jones as a prospect was very, very comparable to Bell. I don't think scrapping him for Bell now would be good for either of them, because Bell would probably progress at the same rate Jones has.

    Also with Bell you need to remember his limited stock car experience only 4 full seasons between Trucks and Xfinity. So he will need time as well.

    I think Bell is gonna be a complete flop in Cup due to the package. Look what it did to Larson, Gordon, Stewart, etc. All the dirt guys have been struggling with the high aero/low hp package cause its the exact opposite of what they grew up on.

    I see your point, but I might take Gordon out of it. He could have even won the championship in 2014 if it wasn't for that move Keselowski pulled at Texas that cut his tire.

    2014 was the last year before they cut the power. 2015 is when they went to 750.

    Oh shoot you're right I forgot about that... And the very next year, he retired with an all time low of 5 top 5 finishes all season.

    Never mind guys, don't listen to me! Lol

    And yet Gordon was still in the Final 4, so technically the lower HP still didn't affect him the same way Larson, Stewart, and others were....

    So it looks like this is Jones' warning to get shit going or get the boot for Bell come 2021.

    Chill... he was just posting a link to an article... I don't see the reason to be so rude about it.
