The 14 team was experimenting Saturday

Larry McReynolds said on the race hub yesterday that he spoke to some crew member on the team, and found out that the 14 was doing a "science project." At least there is a reason for their struggle, not sure about Ryan. Like Larry went on to say I hope they use at Kansas what worked at Chicagoland, Homestead, and Vegas.

A "failed" science project, I would say. :|

Maybe that was what Tony was talking about when he said he knew what was wrong with the car but they couldn't fix it with a pit stop. I wish they would let us know when they are doing this so we can adjust our picks! ;) ;) :D :(

Good point! We can also lower our expectations.

Re: The 14 team was experimenting Saturday

Geez, why don't they test that stuff at a test track. Plenty of other teams have found other tracks to test at. Personally I don't think that's smart. Look how far back that bad race got him, from 3rd to 7th in 1 race. You never know what's going to happen "down the road". He could have a few more bad races just because of circumstances and to have basically thrown one away, I just don't get it. The new points system doesn't leave much room for error. Oh well, I just hope they don't do that again.

Yeah, really...help us out here! :lol:

I was kind of relieved to hear that they'd been experimenting and not just off that badly (well, clearly the experiment didn't work, but meaning they weren't trying a 'typical' setup that was off so badly). Brad K's team has apparently been experimenting, too, they said (though not at Texas, did I hear that right?).
