I hope it blows up in his face and that the 24 crew screws up every stop.

Although I didn't want 48 to win his 5th straight,
I have given him credit for his driving skills. BUT, I have never been able to stand that Chad Knaus, and therefore could not pull for Jimmie. However, last Sunday J J "p..d in the chilli" with has comments about the crew change. He completely threw his 48 crew UNDER THE BUS. I don't know how many of this guys have been with him during the FOUR YEAR run, they deserved better. It was wrong for JJ to say "If any feelings were hurt, too bad".
He could have been more tactfull. He could have said, "I don't make those decisions, I just drive the 48". I know he wants to win, but that was very insensitive and could have been avoided.
And of course who can believe that egotistical Chad Knaus with his explanation. He said this had been discussed with drivers and crews a week or two prior. If so, why did one of the crew members pack up to leave. And why did Chad tell the crew member not to talk to the media. You cannot convince me that Jeff had agreed to give up his crew "days" before this race. Jeff is not exactly a "fishing buddy" of Jimmie. Chad is a convicted cheat, and I would not put anything past him in order to win.
Karma, would be for Jeff to win this weekend with the "48" crew. Ha! Ha!
