the jr conspiracy comes up again, first its jr, then its danica, god forbid it be the people at SHR that suck at setting up cars.

When you buy from the competetion what does one expect? RCR, HMS,JGR,Roush ahhhhh it appears to me if yah build your own,it's the way to go.The chemistry bettween driver and crew chief is simple if they are both on the same page.However,what worked last year may not work this year when it comes to set ups.What worked bettween Tony and Zippy or Jr.and Tony Snr.most likely will not work today as the cars and tires are differant.The drivers and crew chiefs that seem to be able to adapt to these changes are the ones running up front.Then far as the equiptment goes,i never believed in buying from the competetion regardless,it's usually inconsistant at best.There has always seemed to be a little luck involved in racing regardless of how good a team and or driver are and it's not so good for SHR this year as many other big name teams.Look at RCR,they came out of the box great,but not so much as the season continues and they build their own,DEI only plays a small part in engine developement.

I don't think getting their chassis & engines from HMS is the problem. If they were a problem, how do explain Ryan's late season surge? His chassis & engines seem fine. IMO, it's what the guys in the SHR shop do with the car to prep it for a particular driver & track. They are flat missing the setups.

Tony has said all along from day one he wasn't going to ever build his own chassis or engines. That was the whole point of joining Haas, to have that equipment. He effectively became Rick's unofficial fifth driver, Rick had wanted him since his IRL days so it was a win-win for both.

Maybe I'm too trusting of Mr. Hendrick, I just don't think the problems are something his company have created. It's just one of those little down-stretches that every team goes through at some point. Show me one team that hasn't had a rough patch. It's part of racing, it sucks, but if you race long enough this is what's gonna happen.

Tony is still in the top 10 with no win's (Please give me his bad luck)
If for one moment Tony thought that HMS was giving him junk engine's and chassis he would look elsewhere. There is only one thing Rick Hendrick cares about and that’s money.
SHR has done quit well in the past 3 years.
Year 1 both made the chase
Year 2 Tony made the chase Ryan 13th in the points
Year 3 Looking good for both to make the chase.
Most new teams do not even come close to making the chase until the 3rd year.

Yes, but after practice and quals, I didn't expect much this week. At least Tony only lost 2 spots in the points and I think Ryan stayed the same. Well, there's always next week
