well I found a post race and Tony is saying it was him telling him all the strategy for fuel, pitting vs not pitting, ending up 25 either way if they don't make it to the finish.

and they both agreed to stay out.

Loved seeing Tony, Jr and Rick very happy

Haven't read anything about pit crew getting fired, where did you read that?
Why would they fire Jr's pit crew? Jr nation has has Jr's crew in second place in the voting behind Jimmie Johnson for pit crew of the year.

OK you are right.
Man, I'm glad you cleared that up for me. Thanks. I owe you one.
No problem {: Like I said, Dale hit Vickers on the left rear, which does not make the front of the car turn to the right. Vickers tried to compensate for the counter-clockwise rotation by steering into it, which you do by steering to the right. That correction was held for an instant too long and when the rear traction returned, the steering was still to the right, causing the car to hook to the right. The rear lost traction to the left, and he tried to correct by steering hard left but it was too late.

It's not the first time in life somebody over-corrected and spun out, so don't try to act like thats not what happened. The fact is Dale pushed the left rear to the right which would have spun a car to the left, counter-clockwise, and not to the right. Pit maneuvers show this to be the case, as shown here.

Yeah, genious, hitting a car once, then hitting it a second time while it is already out of shape is TOTALLY different that PUSHING a car in the right rear corner. You can thin what you want since your narrow mindedness won't let you see what really took place.

Ever see a superbike go into a corner, slide, then gain traction and it flips and sends the rider flying through air? That is not because the rider corrected or over-corrected. This is the same concept, it has nothing to do with steering input. You obviously can't comprehend basic laws of gravity, so son't bother trying to come up with ten more meaningless videos that have absolutely no relation to juhnyer taking out Vickers.

Again, thanks for enlightening me on how a car can be going straight and can be wrecked by a ghost. I owe you one big time!

Oh, I made a mistake, Tony E. wasn't fired, and the one pit member that screwed up at a race, well I don't know what happened to him, mabey he moved in with jr... I guess he isn't in 23rd place in the points and has won numerous races this year......geez!!!! By the way, isn't Jimmie having a great year, again for the 4th time in a row!!!!

All I did was ask the question, where did you read or get your information about 2 pit crew members being fired? I didn't ask you anything else, so I'm not sure why you are so upset.

Do you have information about pit crew members being fired, or not?

And yes Jimmie is having his kind of year.

Except from Junior's roof cam, you can see the proof that I am right. Thats why I keep posting a link to the video because the proof is right there. http://www.youtube.com/watch... They even say what happened: "Vickers put the block on him and then Junior runs right into the left rear." And the impact that caused him to get out of shape is the ONLY impact. There is no second hit while he's out of shape. That video link confirms it.

Jr should have been black flagged and suspended. The guy is a menace, just like his old man was.

No sir, its real. And just to clear it up I am not some stupid redneck Nascar fan. Just a fan of one of the greatest racers of all time. Now if it was a Dale Jr tattoo I would understand you thinking I am crazy. Hell when I was at Daytona in July I saw a girl with a #20 Joey logano tattoo on her back
