Since I'm a Team #39 fan. I concentrate only on that team. They collectively have one win that in all honesty was simply being in the right place at the right time. Ryan has no poles this year if you can believe it. I can't say they have been consistent or highly competitive. Have I witnessed any improvements? No I have not. Solutions can only be put in place by the owners. Ryan can suggest but he's an employee of S/H so his authority is very limited.
If Team #39 does not get an entry into this years Chase. It doesn't mean it's the end of the world. It means they can not compete for this years Championship. True anything can happen and will no doubt.
I'm not trying to step on any toes here but my question is. Has Newman's move to S/H improved his racing career? He left Penske to be more competitive. Was the grass any greener or the same color?
Newmans Richmond numbers are:STARTS:10/21/5/23/13/18/12......FINISHES:4/10/8/11/20/8/15
One win back in 2003(the good old days)

Career stats for Ryan: 16wins/84 top 5's/160 top 10's.....49 poles
Currently Newman is 17TH in points.
