Martin is pretty quiet.. Car is FAST but he needs a little forward drive adjustment.. but
just a little.. I think he's happy with the car.. and not a lot of talking.. so I think
he is just focused...like on a mission... TOO VICTORY LANE.!!..
He is doing so good... I LOVE IT...

he pit and dropped to 17th and fell like a stone ever since. they think its a bad shock or broken bump stop. Guess they didn't get it at NAPA "they got the good stuff"

Yeah.. Something so GOOD turned bad fast.. He had such a great beginning, with
all those laps led.. but WOW did the car go bad, or bad adjustments.. it was
real upsetting...
Toward the end, Martin said. " I just want to wreck this piece of shit". Those
were his words... among others..
The emotions they must go through from when they are in the lead, in clean air.. just
cruising around, and then, can't get a single adjustment too work right and drop
too the back of the pack and fast..
I am so interested too see how he does in the 56... Wonder if Bono will go with him.

From what I understand Bono is going with him.
Unless I read something wrong???
I kind of wish Bono wasnt going with him.
I think starting from a clean slate would be best.
But what do I know. Im a carpenter not a team owner. Very Happy

I agree I think most of the issues this season have been created on pit road. Or lack of fixing the Issues any way. I wanted to see if a new crew would make it happen. I know they should talk more. If I were crew chief I would want a indepth report of what the car is doing every 10 laps. not just a "hows the car?" and a "loose in" as he comes down pit road. I would want to know how the car is on the long and short run since we get long runs in the middle of the race and short runs near the end. But I race on my couch with a beer in one hand and a smoke in the other. So who am I to judge.
