Hoping for status quo
2000 champ hopes to stay consistant
Bobby Labonte didn't have the biggest numbers in Winston Cup racing in 2000. In fact the most telling number for Labonte was zero, as in zero DNFs. That type of consistency lifted Labonte to the 2000 Winston Cup title. In 2001, he hopes consistency will keep him at the top.
