That's a big "if".



He *can't* cut down on wrecking. Personally, I'm convinced he's trying to suplement his racing salary by dowsing for oil.

But it doesn't matter.



Look, it's okay to have a "crash or win" mentality...if you either crash, or win. Hopkins has got crashing down to a science. Foggy crashed a lot, and won a lot. To a certain extent, so did Wayne Rainey and Steady Eddie. ('Course, those were the bad old days of spaghetti chassis.) Heck, even Gary McCoy did pretty good with "crash or win" thinking...until he had one too many really hard crashes. But Hopkins?



His apporach to racing seems to be less "Crash or win" and more "Crash or finish barely in the Top 10 and then run home and cry to Momma."

Eh? What's that? I can't hear you over my Al Jolson.
