Just how exactly is Tony the blame for 2 encounters with Elliott Sadler, 2 encounters with Kevin Harvick, and the weather in NH last week? That accounts for about 1/3 of the races this season. I'd say wrong place-wrong time - but you don't put yourself in the position intentionally!

When Tony won the championship in 2005, his first win came at Infineon. Unfortunately, because of incident caused by Harvick, Tony will have to make his first trip to VL later this year. He tried again last week, but the race was called early due to a rainstorm.

I agree Tony's contract negotiations are frustrating to the 20 team (and all their fans). But, I think they are focused on race day, and I just don't buy your comment that Tony is screwing up this year.
