Considering that he's a bit banged up, I'd say 10th-15th. If he sticks with it, he could probably get near the top 5 by the end of the series.

Some are saying the East is weak but I disagree. Wharton is going to be surprised I think. If he gets inside the top 10 he should be happy.

Maybe I'm a bit behind BUT I thought I remembered reading/hearing an interview fairly recently of him saying he wouldn't even be at the first 1-2 races due to an injury?

I'm a huge fan...but I think he might be taken by surprise too by how fast the competition goes. He's all but coming off the couch. I'd say if he breaks top-10 I'll be shocked.

Always liked the kid but pretty crash prone and fragile. Older now so maybe he can figure it out.

Lucky to qualify.

I think he'll hover around 15th for a few races. At his best he was a podium threat, but its been a while and he's injured. He'll probably break the top ten before the season is over, but I'd love to see an unlikely top five happen.
