Anybody have a race or scanner report for Tesas. He finished pretty well but it looked like he was struggling with the call all day.

I missed the race, so I don't have a scanner update this week, but I was being texted info. It seems they struggled with the back, and once they got that fixed, they struggled with the front. And once they got that decent, the back started to go again. Loose, then tight, then loose, etc. Sounded like a struggle, but ended up with a pretty decent finish out of it! He told Jimmy at the end that they need to work on the balance more.

Also, I do know that he said he wanted to park the car & watch when the two Jeff's started going at it! Haha.

he passed 145 cars that day... if ur telling me even tho he had a bad car that he didnt have a good day? He finished 13th.. top 15 finish on a track where hes been hit or miss for years. Its definitely an improvement, i dont care what anyone says. He just never had track position. he easily couldve pulled off a decent finish given track position. He just kept gettin shuffled to the back on pitstops when they wee throwing things at it. Atleast three times or more he lost over 10 positions on pit road. that boy drove his heart out and i think he did great. 145 Cars!!!! thats crazy! It was one of the best races ive seen in years, constant action from beginning to end.

The reason he lost like 10 spots on pit road was because they were changing packer, shocks, etc. Those were long stops on purpose. Otherwise, the pit crew was good.

The difference between the RPM cars and the Red Bull cars is that Kasey can actually PASS people now even with a not so great car. With RPM he was just stuck or falling all day. At Red Bull, he can at least DO something! Haha.
