A closer look at Cup's Dodge boys
Friday, Jan. 08, 2010
A few of the specifics on the Penske organization's Dodge drivers:
Won at least one race for the eighth straight year, but more importantly, reasserted his presence as a title threat, finishing fourth, his best effort since the 2004 championship. Must bond with little brother's old crew chief Steve Addington.
Took Phoenix Racing to Victory Lane on April 26 at Talladega, Ala., in just his fifth Cup start; ran three races with his new Penske team; finished third in the Nationwide Series for a second straight year and indulged in a feud with Denny Hamlin.

The Penske organization has chapters of history with the three-time IndyCar champion, but it is expecting a quantum jump soon in his transition to stock cars. Juan Pablo Montoya's third-year blossoming compounds the pressure.
