It seemed to me the decision to take only two tires, when Elliott had already been running in the top ten, was a big error in judgment!! He faded quickly and never regained any good position.

All weekend long Elliott was calling for two tire stops (even in the truck race). The tire Goodyear brought faded too quickly for such stops and it only made his car worse handling than it was before. But if you were listening to him, it was solely HIS call.

What I don't understand is the fact that Elliott still makes the calls on what needs to be done to his car. He does have a crew chief, right? Rarely has Elliott made the correct calls on adjustments so I'm at a loss for words on this blunder. The man could've easily won this race or come close to it if he'd just shut-up and let his crew chief do his job!

I didn't know Elliott made his own calls! He should maybe have some input but the crew chief on most other teams makes these calls from what I have seen and heard. He (or his boss!) needs to let his crew chief make the calls or be told by his boss to let the crew chief make them. As Sammi said, he could have won or come close except for that bonehead call!

We thought Elliott made that call-just to get back to the lead but everyone else took four. Not smart and someone ought to straighten him out on this. I agree, he has a crew chief to make the calls. The truck race wasn't his fault on the accident. Maybe he could have won that one. Oh well, we will see what happens in Calif.
