Yeah, he is in quite a hole. Getting knocked out in the second lap, then getting slapped with a hefty fine/crew chief suspension was not the weekend he was hoping for. It's only one race into the season and he is already 70 points back from the leader, let alone -23 points in the hole.
He's going to have to perform really well this season to take a stab at the championship, but if he does, I'll give him some major kudos.
