Tony not happy

Tony did not sound happy in his post race interview. He's clearly disgusted by the incompetence of Grubb and the rest of his crew. Let's hope changes are right around the corner!

Re: Tony not happy

I know he was unhappy. On his radio he said that he wants the car and engine put on the dyno when it gets back to the shop.

Re: Tony not happy

You're right - he was extremely unhappy & frustrated. What did he say, if they make the Chase, they would just be taking up a spot that someone more deserving should have?!? WOW! :shock:

Re: Tony not happy

Him not caring about the chase is understandable. When you are a former champion, just making the chase is meaningless if you aren't competitive. I personally will be just as dissatisfied with making the chase and finishing 11th in points as I am with missing the chase and finishing 14th.

I am actually hoping he misses the chase, fires useless Grubb, and uses those 10 races to build for next year.

Re: Tony not happy

I don't think frustrated even comes close. Time for a Zippy / Smoke reunion ?? Anyone else care to share an opinion?

Re: Tony not happy

barring a wreck or blown motor, Tony will make the Chase. Which means he will suffer the same fate as Ryan. Since they make the chase they wont make major changes to their team, which means neither CC will be fired.

Re: Tony not happy

I think no matter if they make the chase or not there are going to be changes somewhere in the organization because I can bet I know 2 drivers who are pretty well perturbed by now with they way they have been running. We all know that Ryan's good finishes are from his input.

As for the Tony/Zippy reunion I would love to see that happen!

Re: Tony not happy

Think changes will occur after this season. Maybe Zippy but I think Grubb is a good cc

Re: Tony not happy

Zippy would be a good choice,but sometimes i wonder if Tony has too much on his plate.

Re: Tony not happy

Tony has something on his mind weighing him down effecting his racing. I'd say Danica is the subject of that matter. He's finding out it's hard to wear 2 hats. Too much of something(s) is going on that's distracting him. Him upset / unhappy / grumpy / you name it......the whole assoc. is effected from it. People aren't like Zippy, I think they're wanting to handle him as fine glass.

Zippy would make a good choice for him, they're just 2 peas in a pod in a way when it comes to racing. Tony starts a sentence, Zippy can finish it for him.

Whether it is Danica or not, there is something going on effecting him which is effecting the rest of the dept.

Re: Tony not happy

he has been struggling and distracted long before danica showed up on the radar, maybe he needs to take a serious look at the crew he has in the garage, ryan is in the same boat however ryan has learned that his crew will screw him over and has changed his style to expect that, maybe tony needs to cut back on the extra racing, or maybe this just isnt his year to do anything............

Re: Tony not happy

Ryan has only 2 more top tens then Tony. But Ryan has a win and eight top fives to Tony's 2 top fives. Somehow Ryan has really shined in comparison.

Tiny had shots to win but this team either failed or bad luck happened (Tony cost himself a bit at Texas though). Making the chase is not issue as long as he can record mjust top 15s. But they need to get back to being competitive. Atlanta will be a big test for the team Tony domianted and won that race.

Re: Tony not happy

bad luck year, and the bad luck comes at bad times.

as far as Zippy, I'll bet he's happy where he's at, NOT butting heads with his driver on a daily basis.

as for blaming this on a woman, though it's not uncommon as a woman was the demise of King David and a woman was the only thing that could cause the entire Greek nation to attack Troy, the root of the bad luck this year has a lot to do with Tony and Darian.
