It is done to protect a favored driver who is already having a very bad year, Hmmmmmmmm! It is done all of the time downplaying injuries of a driver, not telling about off track problems, it is called "Keeping it inside the team", much like the sanctity of a stick and ball locker room. You really do not know too much about the inside of racing, do you? Did you know that Jack Roush set up Kurt Busch for the driving while drinking stop so that he could void the contract without having to buy Kurt out of it? That is the reason he went to the Blue Duce. Do your remember Kyle talking about in the last race interview in the first year of the chase? I can not believe that most of the TV fans would not know that the teams can and must keep secrets from the public and press, at times under the understanding that if you leak out the information, you will be fired.<quoted text>
So, if the crew did this and confirmed Junior did it, why was it never released????? You would think that somewhere this story would have come out, but strangely, nothing ever did. Hmmmmm.....
Oh, and I know what RPM stands for, but thanks anyway.
Oh well, the level of some people's knowledge is very low and they do not even know how low it is.
