Gibbs Toyota's........

I don't know what has happened to the Toyota's at JGR. Tonight, both Nationwide Gibbs cars are out of the race, because of parts failure. Now Kurt is about to fall apart. Cup cars aren't much better. Kyle had 3 DNF's, Denny had 2 and Joey just wrecks them and anyone else he can find on the track. There doesn't seem to be any common problem, all are different. They need to get there act together cause they are dropping like rocks in the points system.

Re: Gibbs Toyota's........

I was sure thinking the same thing. I thought TRD had given them some sort of assurance that engines were ok.

I hate this for Kyle....tonight and tomorrow night. How can you start a race knowing you more than likely will not finish it because of faulty equipment.

Still gonna wear my M&M's earrings tomorrow night and bring the 18 some luck

Re: Gibbs Toyota's........

I know! I have taken both Kyle and Denny off my picks tonight!! I want to put Kyle back on but ....You think your earrings will help? Have they worked before? I have changed my picks 5 times, this will be 6. Even went with for Kurt for awhile :roll: I just don't know?!?

Well I've only had the earrings for about a month but to be quite honest so far they suck!!

Re: Gibbs Toyota's........

Thanks Schmoopy, I took Kyle off and went with Tony, too! I have never seen so much in equipment failure for one team and it doesn't seem to get better and it isn't always the same part. That is what is so puzzling and the fact that MWR with the same engine, winning races. This doesn't add up. :roll: :?:

The Schmoopy curse will not get me tonight. I don't trust the Gibbs engines. Kyle, I wish you well my friend but as they say....I'm with Smoke

Re: Gibbs Toyota's........

From what I heard, TRD not only assured JGR, but their sponsors. JGR needs to go back to using their own engines. It doesn't matter that the failures were due to different parts, it's the same end result. They're obviously trying things but they need more testing before using those engines in races. I'm sorry, but Kyle's 3 failures in a row is just not acceptable. I have to give him a ton of credit though. If I were him I'd have been going off in the interviews he's done after those engine failures. He's kept his cool though so kudos to him.

well Kyles last problem, if he went off, he would have had to go off on his teammate (Logano) for taking out the rest of JGR. So it was probably best he just screamed at his crew & not to the reporters. Although I would have loved to see Kyle throw Joey under the bus.
