Jones has proven capable of winning and Suarez hasn’t, thats a pretty big difference. I’d rather have a driver that can get a bunch of top 5s, 10s, bur is inconsistent over a guy that finishes 12th every week. Kasey Kahne was like that, and he did pretty okay for himself
Inconsistency drives me absolutely crazy, and when Kahne was at HMS, he made be want to pull my hair out in frustration 90% of the time. When he was good, he was good, and when he was bad, he was ABYSMAL. On the other hand, perhaps my all time favorite stretch of racing fandom was in 1998, when Jeff Gordon scored 17 straight top five finishes and 23 out of 25. Even if he hadn't won a race in that stretch (He won 11), it would STILL have been the greatest run in NASCAR's modern era. I am also very fond of the 15 straight top 10's Harry Gant put together in 19984 to nearly snag a tittle.
