Positives: Collected 4 wins, 24 top-tens and bonus points in an amazing 23 races.  Chalked up back-to-back 5000+ point seasons, which hasn't been done since Richard Petty in 1974.
Negatives:  Good luck finding any.  How do you top this performance in 2001?
Comments: What can you say about this year's champion?  Bobby just gets better every year and is now completely out from under his two-time champion brother's shadow.  Interstate will remain as sponsor through 2003.
