I got this from another site, did anyone else hear this? I didn't have a scanner so I can't verify it.
I was listening to their in-car audio when Jimmie's engine blew. Chad really lost it, he kept saying the "f" word over and over, then he referred to the pit crew as a bunch of monkeys. Things will be different with Jimmie's guys next week, you can bet on it.
I used to listen to Jr's scanner and he was always using the F-Bomb and was as mean as Kurt Busch sometimes to his team. He got away with it because Tony Eury was a relative. He has toned it down for sure.
Can't blame Chad for being so -issed after their night and after the engine going south, pretty much would have made anyone blow a headgasket at that point.There isn't a crew or driver who hasn't cursed at one point or another and i kinda like it,it takes the heat off me as a fan.
I'll be honest, I'm glad to hear a crew cheif with emotion. Chad will not settle for blown engines. He will stay on the engine department until they figure out what happened and then make sure it doesn't happen again. As for his pit crew, you better believe they know they can be replaced. I'm sure he tells them they can be. As for SHR crew cheifs, I'm not sure they are awake for an entire race as of late.
I guess what I'm saying is, I want Knaus to come over to the 39!
Chad at SHR??? Uhhhh... No way. So he is passionate! He also comes across as an Ahole. I'd quit supporting either team if Tony brought Chad into SHR. I'm sure I am in the minority there but I just don't like him.
As for his dropping an F---bomb? So what! It was stupid of the TV producers to listen in on any radio when an engine is blown. What do they expect to hear? 90% of CCs probably say some expletive or another in that circumstance.
