« NASCAR needs to add fun | Main | How would Earnhardt JR rank in the Hendick Motorsports stable? »

May 07, 2007



I think the full-time Toyota teams are spread too thin, trying to build different types of cars. Wyler Racing was smart to simply focus on building one good CoT. I know they did a lot of testing with Rudd last year.


Competition caution wa thrown because the night before they 'raced' 12 laps. This caution was good, it gave the teams time to check and change tires incase anything had gone wrong over night and to top up so they could have a full run in before regular pit stops.

Fast Laps ?'s:
1) Harvick's spotter!
2) Easy, they are not going to merge.
3)Entry list was slightly smaller and there was less than 0.6 of a second from the pole to the 49th qualifier - as much as one little slip by the driver is the difference between starting in the top 10 and going home. Also Johnny Benson has better experience than say AJ at Red Bull.
4)No, they own too many of the better tracks for that to happen, and the second tier track owners are in deep with the France family as well.

Mike:That's good info on Wyler racing working on the CoT with Rudd.

Bob:I still think the crew chief has the responsibility in the pits. I'm with you on everything else. Benson is also a very underrated driver.

Thanks to you both for commenting. We used both of you ON PIT Row last night. Plugged your blogs (all of them that I know of) as well.
