My husband and I was talking about the switch of the crew 24 to 48. I told him it would be funny if Gordon came out faster then JJ hahaha.
I like 24 crew don`t get me wrong. But, it would be funny though.

JJ had consistently faster stops in Phoenix, with no errors. Now who's calling Chad Knaus a bad guy for swapping crews? Seems like he had the right idea.

Jeff's "new" crew was only a tick behind his "old" crew on the 48. The end times they show also include how the driver enters and exits the pits also.

The switch was a brilliant move and will probably allow the 48 to get his fifth championship. Both those teams will be celebrating if JJ wins.

Can you see the 18 and 11 team celebrating together?

I was looking only at the stop times, which were repeatedly a couple tenths better for JJ, but again, and more importantly, no errors.

I can't see KB celebrating with anyone, even a teammate.

According to Chad and Hendrick the 24 and 48 are just one big team working out of the same shop.
If that's so how come Jimmy is winning races and Championships and Jeff is struggling to run in the top ten?
Is Jimmy now Rick's favorite like Jeff used to be?


On another note, when Rick decided to move the drivers around to different teams why wasn't Jimmy included in the shake up? After all they all get the same equipment.

I used to think the same until I worked for GM. GMC and Chevy Light duty trucks are made on the same assembly line the only difference are the badges and trim. Also GM is out of the Medium Duty truck business as of last June, this means no more school buses,wreckers, Motor home chassis.
As soon as they get rid of that lousy Duromax(Isuzu) diesel they will be better off.(ask any GM diesel mechanic)
A couple of years ago they sold the heavy duty truck business to Volvo but they could not get anybody to take over the medium duty line.
