Unbelievable! He was doing great too- From 38th to 22nd in 42 laps! When I heard NASCAR was making him come in to strap something up- I had no idea what they were talking about. I thought maybe a piece on the back from the 41 getting into him but guess not.
Well not looking at the results- he did a great job all day- They speeds were there and he stayed out of trouble.

JJ is driving more like the driver I am use to seeing. Heartbreaker tho. Onto Martinsville~

No coverage at all on it! That was even more frustrating.

I don't believe fansmoke was referring to JJ's finishing position, but rather how well he was doing in the first part of the race.

Yes I realize that is where he finished the race- But because a pipe or something that came off the header. They had to come in and it took the crew 25 laps to fix it.

But if you look at the whole picture- That car was really strong all day- He and Harvick came up through field together-up to 22nd by lap 42 from 38th ( Pretty good for Bristol )- then JJ led nine laps and thats when the header came loose and NASCAR made him come in and fix it.

There was no way he was going to be able to make up 25 laps or more. Finished 36, and is 15th in the points now-(Whew) I just Hope they tighten all the parts this week and make sure those fuel pump issues that hit his teammates are solved!
