Of course, he and his No. 9 team can only blame themselves -- and consecutive 40th-place finishes leading into Richmond -- for their late summer collapse. But the issue could be deeper than that.
1) it was a poor run not cause Kasey's car... everytime he would start making up spots David Gilliland would block him in the pits. Kasey tried pitting every different way he could but every single time David would pit so that he was blocking Kasey.
2) How are they suppose to blame themselves for the 40th place finishes? First was an engine failure.. that would happen to anyone its the first one for GEM since February of 2007. The second 40th place was Casey Mears spotters fault. Kasey had no where to go and would have avoided it if he was not hit from behind.
