What just happened...?? I left the room for a few minutes. Martin was 3rd.. not
I think he might be 10th???? Don't tell me we are going backwards AGAIN...
I agree with someone who said... Martin should talk more about what is going on with
the car...not just before a pit stop, but the whole time during the race.
He starts out up front, and just drops... what is with that? Are they adjusting TOO
much.. I know some driver said they make tiny, tiny adjustments.. nothing big..just
ever so slight.. Hope Bono is not overdoing the adjustments.
Another pit stop.. I wonder how it will go. Lap 80-something.

Tunning is big at night. The track is much cooler then during the day when you qualify. So you have to be a great tuner to chase the cooling track and air. so the better your car was for qualifying the worse it will be for the night race. so you better have some good data on night races so you know what to do. Truex had a issue with his ignition. his tack was jumpping and had a miss at lower rpm making holding pit road speed and restarts difficult. Bones never told him to try the back up ciol and MSD box but Martin should know to try it. then the #13 (down 5 laps) wouldn't get out of the way. when Truex puched threw they bumped and truex took some small damage and a few laps later he cut down a tire. as a result they bent some mount and went to the garage and bent it back and welded it. When Truex called it quites he sent his spoter to talk to the 13 spoter. spotter said driver wasn't listening to him. I listened to the #13 radio and boy that guy is a idot.

well, I think Bones was the weak link in the chain. He calls the shoots. I don't know what you do for work. But if your boss/ manager isn't making the right calls your team doesn't excell. Bones tells the pit crew what changes to make to make the car better. So I feel if this guy has put a car in the chase 4 out of the past 5 years it could be a good thing. at least we know the car will be better and I think Truex has the skills to be at least 13th in the points. I don't know about the first year, But I bet it will be better then 24th. last year truex had the fastest pit crew so I hate to see them go. But as a really good bottle cap driver I would say Its a good thing. Just the aditude you bring to a new job is worth a lot. just look at Tony sweart, all freash attitudes.

but remember this: I'm just some dumb a** wood butcher for Jersey that builds stuff with metal studs jocolor

Now the pit crew stays with that team number.. So if McMurray does go too the
#1.. he gets Martin's crew guys.. That sucks, cause Martin's crew was pretty good..
And now he will have the 55's pit crew? O.K. that scares me... We don't know if
all Mikey's spin outs and wall banging is due to driver error, or pit crew error.,

I don't know how the crews work but i'm sure they will put a good one together for him. It dosen't seem like MWR is looking to cheep out on this. I think they are trying to put the best they can find together to get that car in the running. It will make a really interesting 2010. I think they are making the right moves.
