No, Tony wasn't in Phoenix. He stayed in Charlotte and attended the WoW finals at The Dirt Track.

Jayski is saying (rumored) that Addington is to go to the 51 with Justin Allgaier.

Re: New Crew Chief?

I knew you wasn't serious Annalee. lol. Maybe HH & I have a bridge to sell you, lol. How about the old Memorial Bridge or the brand new Blennerhasset Bridge in Parkersburg, lol. I love the groups here at SHR, we do have some fun.

Re: New Crew Chief?

I think making things up might be fun. We have some really wild imaginations on this site. On the original site we had done that and some of it was really funny. I remember one was a list of home tips and one was "never clean your dryer screen with a dryer sheet as it could cause a fire." I had done that for years and so I checked it out and sure enough that was a good hint. I've never used a dryer sheet agin to clean the lint off the dryer screen.

Re: New Crew Chief?

I like Steve a lot and was pretty excited when he was named Tony's crew chief, but the results just haven't been there once it came time for his notebook to lead the way. After they won two of the first five last year and looked like world beaters, they just haven't been as good as they need to be. I don't put all the blame on Steve, I think it's stupid how folks are so fired up to change the crew chief every time things aren't going well for their particular driver, as though plugging a new person atop the box is going to be the magic remedy. It seldom is. I didn't see the 39 lighting the world on fire, either. The equipment has got to be there for the crew chief to be able to do his job. The days of having a genius on the box and making chicken salad out of chicken crap are long gone.

That being said, I'm gonna trust Tony and the braintrust's judgement. If Tony didn't feel like they were communicating well enough or that Steve was adept enough at giving him what he needs to be competitive, then there has to be a change. Whoever it is, whether it's Chad Johnston or somebody else, hopefully he and Tony can get on the same page quickly.

Being realistic, the early weeks of 2014 have the potential to be just as rough as this year, if the team hasn't got things where they need it and Tony and a new crew chief go through strong growing pains. On top of that, he's the best race driver on the planet but he hasn't driven since August, who knows what if any amount of time it will take Tony to re-acclimate himself. The Gen 6 car, being so new, is constantly evolving so what he drove at Pocono the day before the accident is liable to be a bit different than what he runs once they get past Daytona. I do believe firmly that he can still win the Daytona 500, though. And I think that eventually they will get it to where they need it. They seemed right on the edge before he got hurt.

Re: New Crew Chief?

We do have wild imaginations on this site. lol. I keep telling the gang on raceday that since I don't have anyway to watch the race I depend on their visuals to imagine what's going on. Only thing is they have to watch them there visuals. Afterall during 1 race I thought for sure that Kyle Busch wanted a wedgie when he was wanting a wedge adjustment or something like that. :lol:

Re: New Crew Chief?

Thanks for replying to the actual post that I made SMOKE14TS. I agree with pretty much all that you said. I do think Johnston will be Stewarts crew chief but the big question may be who will Kurt's CC be.
