the 1st bad pit stop the sent him all the way back to ssomething like 23 was because mears hit one of ryans tires when he was coming in. Ryan got on thwe radio after the stop & asked if everyone had ten fingers & ten toes.
The pit stop where Ryan "drove" his way up into the top ten, & he came out 15th was simply the pit crew sucks.
CS Ryan did take a wave around, but the reason he was still a lap down was because he was caught two laps down (he was 1st car 2 down) since Edwards hadnt pitted yet. Ryan was getting upset with the same handling all night long & the subpar from the team. When he started cussing,
the radio was pretty quiet except for the spotter doing his job. Then Ryan started asking for a response, the next sentence started with I dont know, we are trying to figure it out. It was a very very bad performance by the 39 team, & the car wasnt that bad. At the end of the race Ryan pointed out it was Burtons wreck that trapped them down it was the other stuff. Ryan should have been further up.
& yeah when I heard Tony talking about his pit crew because they finally lost him one spot, I wanted to just punch him in his face LOL. it was a very irrating race for me.
If you listen to the radio you will see how clueless TG really is. Deep into the race Ryan said the car is like it was at the start, TG said they want to go back on adjustments to about 3 runs ago.
Ryan said wait a minute, the track is changing & we were going in the right direction. We need to make more adjustments not go back on adjustments. TG replied well no one else is adjusting their cars so I dont know. Ryan finally started getting excited & said well we are not everybody else! Shortly after that Angry Ryan came out & the CC said less & less. there was a spot in Ryans run about 15 laps in where he would get real tight in center & they couldnt fix that all race long. So when Ryan had to try harder to make up for all the spots he lost & it happened again, is when Ryan started cussing & TG was about useless at that point. I think I know why Ryan stays so clam all the time when most other drivers are screaming. Because when Ryan does get mad the CC crumbles. (my own opinion on that)
Before one pit stop TG called for what they were gonna do, & someone else came on the radio (not sure who it was) & pointed out keeping up with the track, & to make a track bar adjustment. Which TG said yeah & added that to his list of adjustments. I laughed because at 1st I thought it was the spotter making a call for adjustments. But I really dont think it sounded like the spotter, so I am not sure who else was on Ryans radio.
Bottom line I am so sick of this team. I cant think of any of the championship teams (& ryan is funded like a championship team) that would allow even 1/10th of this crap, without making someone accountable.
Loyalty is a virtue, & I think Ryan's virtue is gonna cost him dearly on so many levels.
His loyalty to Tony for 1 & his loyalty to his CC for 2.
Man I wish another top ride would pop up this year so Ryan could move on!
Of course Ryan isnt gonna leave, so us Ryan fans will just have to endure the incompentence we know as the 39 team. (& listen to the weekly appologies from the CC for messing up)
