Re: SHR PRACTICE....

Only 21 cars total even went out for the 2nd practice. I think the risk is too great if your car is decent.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

Very common at plate tracks... if you got the car good/decent in 1st practice why risk it in the 2nd.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

They were that good???

Here are the SHR positions from 1st practice....

Kurt 9th
Danica 19th
Tony 24th
Kevin 37th

Though practice speeds don't really mean much at plate tracks. They could have been running race set-ups or even trying some other things out.

I think JJ was 43rd fastest in 1st practice.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

I don't think they were good at all. Had to use his past champions provisional. Really not a good sign...

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

This could be U-G-L-Y. And to make matters worse I'm hearing they extended the contract of Tony Gibson. Now I'm scared.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

Qual session was a joke... P37-43 in order... Tony, Denny, Kevin, Kyle B, Kyle L and Jeff (yes people Jeff Gordon nearly missed the race)... the Roush's 17 did miss the race....

I don't put much stock in the qual session and at plate tracks it's all about staying out of trouble and being there at the end...

As for trouble and extending Gibson's contact... I don't care on that one... I want to know the changes that are necessary on the 14 are coming.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

My only concern is the 14...and a change is necessary. Im worried Gibson IS the change.

Didn't think of it that way... but don't see how he'd be worse that CJ.... listening to the team communications all year has been painful!

(Okay - wasn't Gibson one of the CC Tony won in Busch/Nationwide with, or is my memory failing me.)
That's not to say I think he'd be the right call... I'm kinda hoping they get can Dave Rogers to come over... maybe he'd be a good fit.

Re: SHR PRACTICE....

Yeah, Tony thinks quite a bit of Gibson. Me, not so much.

Dave Rogers? SWOON......

Back in '08 when Tony was running the 20 nationwide car he and Dave won 5 out of 9 races. Tony always did like Dave as well.
