1999 Winston Cup Points:         4003 1999 Winston Cup Place:  10th
2000 Winston Cup Points:         3898 2000 Winston Cup Place:  12th
Differential: - 105 Differential: - 2
Positives: Had 11 top-ten finishes including a 2nd place at Talladega, and had 8 top-five qualifying spots.  Collected bonus points in 12 races and a pole at California.
Negatives:  Had DNF's at Atlanta and Darlington, both due to engine problems.  Failed to get his first WC trip down Victory Lane.
Comments: Mike's performance slipped from his excellent 1999 season.  With his skills and equipment, fans expect wins and a top-five finish in 2001.  Lowes, after much wrangling, will remain as primary sponsor.  Apparently a lumber company that is a Lowes' vendor will be on the hood of the car.
