Going back to the crew chief, I think it's the same sort of deal. Who would they get in there? It'd have to be a younger, more unproven type of guy, as I think part of the reason Gibson is still there is that he's cheap for his experience level. Stewart isn't going to break the bank or be able to convince a big name to come over to an unsponsored team with no certain future after 2013.
But, Stewart should be looking into anyone, why can't they find a guy like Paul Wolfe (Keselowski's CC). We need a guy who isn't afraid to make a call or pit strategy move unlike the same predictable follow-the-leader stuff or occasional 2-tire change.
I only said sometimes driver change help.. But I hope they change only crew chief.. Thankfully Ryan is staying..
