Big wide track plenty of racing room....fast...that's what Newman is all about. But his new team has failed miserably at obtaining a race car balance of any use what so ever since 2009. From now on out. My stats will mainly be from 2009 till current. Why? Why bring up the past beyond Newman's new team because those cars were totally different and there were many different Nascar rules in place. Tires have changed as well.
What I as a fan am looking for is substantial racing improvement in Team #39. Can this race team finish better than the stats show? Will Matt Borland be able to unlock the balance mystery that has puzzled Team #39 and Tony Gibson since 2009?
Here's your stats for Michigan from 2009 to current: Avg Start.-12.5/Avg Finish-23.25(super bad)/1-top 20(Yikes)/Best Finish-15TH. You can only go up from those stats folks!
What has me excited is just the fact something has been improved at S/H. You folks may not know all that much about Matt Borland but I'm very aware of his talent. He's "the real deal" folks! I only wish he was the Crew Chief and let Tony Gibson take over as the team cook. He surely can balance a hamburger or hot dog I would assume?
My hats off to Team #39's pit crew this week. Great job last week guys!
Please don't close my door on being nice to you all with a bad performance this coming Sunday!
