I'm a huge #9 fan (since the days of Bill Elliot) but on one hand I have to somewhat agree with you. He does seem to do dumb things, not just late in the season but also late in races. How many times has he crashed in the last few laps of a race?
On the other hand, I do think it's way
too early to talk about him being a choke artist. After all, it's only his third season and these last 9 races are the only ones he's run in the chase. If he makes the next few chases and finishes in the lower half each time then I think you're onto something, IMHO.
