Re: I have had it with....

I can understand the frustration. But, it's like a marriage---for better or for worse. Things just might be a bit bumpy right now, but there's always hope for the future.

They win as a team and lose as a team. Tony likes Chad a lot, and I think there is something else that isn't working. I also know a lot of the guys Tony brought over from JGR have retired in the last year or two.

Re: I have had it with....

OK, seriously tho ... ;-)

There are sooooooo many facets of elements in a race that are beyond the control of most.

Temp tracks - rising or falling .... how much oil is on the track, since last rain? Condition of the track.

Condition of the driver - is he ok today? Mad? Happy? Not feeling good? Really upset about something? In physical pain this week ? Each pit crew member? Tire changer is developing serious allergies all of a sudden ? Gas man is going thru a break up this week ?

All the thousands of pieces, parts, equipment & tools that EACH has the capacity to fail all on it's own. All the damage a car takes during a race that changes so many things.

I could go on & on ... but the point is - there is more to winning, running or losing a race, than the driver or CC. :-)

He's said some things recently that lead me to believe he's finally realized he's not invincible... He's also said some things in the car that sound like he's not so aggressive anymore. Like it or not, I don't really care. Just shows he's human after all. Add all that to the 4th team this year, the new rules package, the changes in the car, the new cc. Geez, get over it and be glad he can still drive. He came very close to losing that leg and his life...

Re: I have had it with....

I still don't think the injury has anything to do with Tonys performance, at least the recuperating aspect anyway. I have also heard things that indicate he may not be as aggressive. The sad thing is how many years will Tony drive garbage cars before he hangs it up.

Re: I have had it with....

regardless of the accident, drivers when they get older hit a patch where they dont get wins regularly, gordon had a couple years of no ones or win win, Sr, Rusty, Martin, and if that is where tony is at, big deal, instead of worrying if he is gonna win every weekend, enjoy the fact he is around, sooner than later he will be out of racing and most of you would have complained your weekends away looking for a win or a championship, instead of bein excited every weekend cuz he is racing.

Maybe Tony has got too much on his plate at the moment and has become a distraction. I'm only guessing at the assumption.
I'm like everyone else, I would like to see him running stronger and I think he will!


Well, as much as I can remember....Dale wasn't ever as seriously hurt as Tony was----just saying....
BUT
I haven't give up --and I believe I've said it before---nor will I give up hope!
Yes, we all wish that Tony would be back winning again, but unfortunately it hasn't happened yet.
He'll get there :D

Re: I have had it with....

I have really paid attention to Tony on restarts all year. His aggressiveness has been higher this year I feel then in the past 5. I don't think there are any endurance issues with his leg. I think missing half of last year with a new car (which was junk btw) and having to adjust to new CC is what is hampering him. Not sure if he can make the Chase but I think he will be better as things go along. Performance they are getting better. Just haven't had much luck.

Re: I have had it with....

Say what you will, but I've seen him wheel a bad handling car and come out on top. I have to say I'm just not seeing that Tony this year... I'm hoping the Glen brings that out in him :mrgreen:

Re: I have had it with....

I'm just tired of hearing excuses and far as Dale the only thing that ever stopped Dale from racing was Daytona 2001, he drove several times with injuries much more severe and hid it from Nascar!
How many crew chiefs has Tony had since this became SHR, non stayed long enough is the way I see it, yet Gibson should have been gone long ago! :shock:
