Not for adjustments as Ryans car was better than Tonys all day long, except for one run in the middle of the race. Even at the end Ryans car was better than tony's. Just Tony's CC is smarter is all.
The 39 team stratergy was perfect if they did what they planned. They came in took tires near the end, & was suppose to come in about 6 laps later of green laps for a splash of gas. This would allow Ryan clean air driving & when alll the others stopped he would have gained time, or if the yellow came out. He would still be on the lead lap (they were using RC stratergy) & when the others pitted for fuel he would just move up to the front. (Which Tony did do)
However, TG never brought Ryan back in for the splash of gas & the yellow did come out. Which painted Ryan in a box. If he pits (which he did) they werent getting back to the top ten. If he stayed out, he had a chance to steal a victory, as their car was handling well at that time, & he would have restarted in the 2nd row. If they would have known how many yellow laps that particular caution was gonna go as nascar extended the caution for debris, they would have stayed out. Let alone the caution later that came out. But instead they came in killing their guarenteed top 5, & restarted 18th. Where he did work his way up in the few green flag laps they had to 12th. Before then he was running better than Mark, Logano, Tony & Hamlin. So the threat of winning would have been a real one. Like I said because they didnt follow their game plan for the splash of gas during green, is why they ruined their guarenteed top 5. TG is incapable of decision making on the box. What killed me this weekend was he didnt pulll the trigger to bring ryan in for the splash, & that was their stratergy! He couldnt even follow their own stratergy properly.
So no I dont blame him on the adjustments part so much, but definitely blame him as a CC for losing 7+ points for ryan, & a possible win. This team is so frustrating. Now that Joey won the race, he willl probably stay in the 20 car, which was really the only other quality ride out there.
Bottom line, us Ryan fans are screwed.
