I really think Donnie was the right crew chief to make JP succesful. Looking at last year, they made the same crew chief swap in the Nationwide Series, and it was good for Reed. I think Chip just wants to keep his cars in the top 35. Don't think he is that interested in making the chase.

Yes but is Jimmy better than Donnie? Or is Donnie better and that's why they put him there to help sorenson?

I think is going to be a good change dont get me wrong i really like Donnie but look at it this way, Elledge is now crew chief of the best ganassi team in nascar and he is going to work hard to give juan a good car because now he is under a lot more preassure he has to keep improving the team like Donnie was and Donnie has to get reed back in track and about Juan im not worry about him he is a natural if Elledge gives him a good car he'll drive it to the front.

I guess with Montoya's second place, it was a good change...

Ganassi said he will do whatever it takes to get Juan in the chase! I have a feeling that Wango will come on back over in time. Juan has a good personal relationship with Wango and on the scanner Elledge was silent. Another Chip move. He's ruthless, I hope it pays off.

Well, now we found out it's all about politcs. Elledge pissed of a Nascar Official, now Montoya is affected by this. He should have had an advantage in Qualifying becasue he participated in the all star race, yet he qualified in the back of the field due to this change.. That is frustrating..
