HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

Not if you put them upside down....During first practice... that is what SHR told Larry McReynolds .

What was wrong with Tonys car at Las Vegas!!?!?...his right front spring was put in wrong, so NO amount of adjustment would have helped the car...that should be easy to find out who made that mistake...... :? Glad that Chad took the car back to the R&D to be torn down,......... problem solved....not to happen ever again.... :roll: :roll: :P
And it looks like qualifying is as bad or worse.....he has to use a Championship provisional..that is pitiful... :evil:

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

Now for Bristol, Kurt fastest in practice, then Harvick and THEN--way back Tony & Danica? Can anyone say there's seriously something wrong with SHR? AS mentioned, even the announcers commented on many issues, mainly how can Kurt and Harvick be so good and the others so bad--just isnt right as there is clealry a communication issue with this team? Hopefully qualifying or esp the race will show better but not getting my hopes up? :roll:

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

I find this shocking....no pun intended. I would imagine the powers that be are livid.

I still found though that the practice speeds on the 14 were still slower than what I would have liked to see.

If things don't pick up after this weekend I'll be searching Barnes and Noble for a book on voodoo.

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

so this is the order for SHR and I don't know about the rest of you but this knock out qualifying is starting to feel like the team will never get a pole . I know that Tony was not happy at all with the car. I know I'm not a crew chief or engineer or even know how to change a tire on a car but what is going on with this team more importantly what is happening with Tony . I know its only the start of the season but what is going on . One can only hope things can only go up from here.

Kurt Busch P13,
Harvick P27,
Patrick P36
Stewart P38.

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

Doc the way it looks you had better start looking for that book. I did read that Tony made the remark that you have to have that time on the first try of qualifying not the fourth try.

I agree Annalee. Get up there and work one on one with Chad until things start ironing out.
Matt is working with Kurt's crew chief so Zippy needs to work with Chad.

Just saw the pathetic qualifying position for team 14.

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

Bunch of bandwagon jumpers on this site. Not sure what anybody's expectations are with Tony coming back at Bristol. I don't expect much at all considering he still months from a broken leg. Bristol has to be one of the most physically demanding tracks that they run on. Give it time all will be fine. It will also take time for Chad and Tony to click, but I'm putting more stock into their combo than the last CC.

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

i dont think these women are band-wagoners, they just want to see him do well, but i had a feeling the struggles would continue from last year, going from 2 to 3 set them back, so going to 4 is going to do the same, then tony just coming back himself is a big thing and need time to get re-adjusted to everything and a new CC.

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

Just a thought....... 3-4 years ago.... at this point in the season...
Tony would be climbing up and down the pit walls over the starting
results of this season.

I'm NOT thinking the slow start is a result of Tony's physical condition,
I AM thinking he and Chad simply need to get their heads together
in a fashion which makes them fast.

Chad does seem to be quiet and receding... If he does not grow some,
Tony will eat his lunch.....DAILY... :D

Re: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....

I am NO bandwagon jumper. I'm in it for the long haul brothers and sisters. I'll even go out on a limb to say that if this man never wins another race in his career I'll be proud to be his fan.

I also don't think it's about his physical condition. If he thought he was well enough to jump into that car I defer to him. He's fine. It will be a work in progress.
