Sorry folks I miss-titled my post! It is for Dover!HiddenHollow wrote:I agree that they need to find the answer to the "what went wrong" question. My concern is whether or not they have the right people on the team to correctly answer the question. More importantly, they need to be able to take that information and come up with specific changes to make.
I too get tired of the canned, "the team worked hard" answer, but he's not going to slam the team in public and I agree with that. I would really like to be a fly on the wall during their Monday post-race meetings back at SHR. That's where you'll hear the truth, I think, but we fans don't get to hear that.
This is what happens when a team doesn't know "what went wrong" and therefore has no solution! I know I'm just a "fan" and certainly don't know anything about running a race team. But, these are highly paid professionals and I would expect them to know.
Maybe I'm over-simplifying the complexity of setting up a race car, but that's how I see it.
And Tony's car was worse! So the #39 team couldn't get any helpful information from the #14 team. They had no answers either.
Guess I'm just frustrated that both teams missed it soooo badly.
EDIT: did you mean to title your blog Darlington rather than Dover?

I don't mean to throw Tony Gibson "under the hauler" but I will because I can!Schmoopy1000 wrote:Ryan said near the end of the race.
I have never worked so hard, for so little. CC responded with standard answer Blah blah blah.
At the end of the race he said
This is the worst race car I have ever had here. CC said he knows & apologized for missing it so bad. Ryan told him he wasnt trying to beat him up over it he was just saying.
I will have to admit, as crappy of cars Ryan gets sometimes, he keeps his cool very well. You may hear a cuss word here or there, but that is about it. I have heard Kyle Busch running 2nd & screaming tirades of F-Bombs berating his crew, that they all suck. So while I give Kudos to Ryan to keep calm, I sure hope some fire comes out behind closed doors. because I honestly think he might be to docile at times at the track.

Hey MJ! Don't be shy, step up and be heard....even though you are a Johnson fan! It's NOT being negative just because you are a demanding fan. We are simply saying what our driver can't! Is it "beating a dead horse" perhaps. Is it helpful, probably not but it sure makes you feel better!michaeljohn wrote:they have had serious issues with the pit crew since day one of SHR and until they address this as a serious matter, they will continue to have these issues, and that is not bein negative, its the facts.
