I said it earlier, it is Penske's to lose. JL and BK look strong. Glad Boyer is out of Chase. Since the "spin" , they have been spinning as a team.

I was there last night but didn't this from turn 2. The radio announcers had a good time with it.

With all the cops around there I wonder how he got that far with nobody noticing. Sure took them a long time to throw the caution flag.

So - apparently, four drivers have a chance to win the championship at the last race. How do you feel about that? I've got mixed feelings. I know why they're doing it this way - $$$$. But - doesn't seem right that a whole season comes down to one race - where anyone can have a bad pit stop, etc. I'm curious to see fan reaction to all of this.

SO....

 

Harvick gets into the Chase...and now Stewart takes his crew???  I guess it remains "all about Tony"....

 

Seems like a bad decision, but we'll see....

Harvick's crew costs him positions with every pit stop. Giving him Tony's crew should help him be competitive during the chase.

This is usual and customary in NASCAR to switch pit crews when the Chase starts.  Jimmy Johnson used to take Gordon's crew for years.  And this year Petty has switched crew members from Ambrose to Almirola for the Chase.  It is all about giving the persons in the chase the every possible advantage.  One year Dale Jarrett lured Jeff Godrdon's entire pit crew away at the end of the season.

One year Dale Jarrett lured Jeff Godrdon's entire pit crew away at the end of the season.

 

That's not 'quite' right.

 

Robert Yates HIRED "The Rainbow Warriors" away from Hendrick Motor Sports (HMS) and Gordon.  They were all getting the standard pay for over the wall pit crew members at the time and Yates doubled it.  I think it was $200 per week and Yates doubled it to $400 per week (cash).  It might'a been $400 a week doubled to $800, I'd have to ask my son (who was there at the time).

 

Oh, and he/Yates didn't succeed with "the entire crew".  Shane Parsnows stayed with HMS.  Shane was also a (full time) engine builder under Randy Dorton at HMS so he stayed and as far as I know, is still with Rick building engines.  Shane was the front tire changer for Gordon until they moved him over to Jimmie Johnson's crew as front tire changer.

Time to check the forecast for IL!

 

Still not sure about this Chase business, but keeping an open mind. At the very least, it will give the guys in the booth a sore throat! :whistling:

Yea baby! That car seemed really fast in clean air. Joey's car blew up at the finish. Larson really impressed me. That kid can drive. He will win a race eventually.

Yeah, two Ford engines blew - Almirola and Lagano.  Really too bad about Almirola, he was doing so well.  Actually it appears that Ford is doing more to get more HP out of their engines from the looks of this...good to see!

Penske has got these cars figured out compared to Roush/RPM.  Roush needs to spend some time testing or change his "team of engineers" to catch up.
