Sauter? needs to get rid of his attitude. Said is and I like him. Stremme is but with all due respect performance wasn't so hot! Wallace? on his way out, you have to have results to keep a ride, bottom line. Ganassi wasn't going to keep someone who doesn't run too well. It's also the sponsership thing Stremme lost Coors, it's just the way it goes, when someone comes with big sponsors they're going to get a ride, nothing new to that.

If any of these guys had performed well enough to even keep their sponsor they would still be in the ride. There is an old saying that all these drivers fall into and it is "Everyone gets promoted to at least their first level of incompetence". In the case of these drivers they some how managed to get promoted to their second or third level and it finally caught up with them. I like and respect all these drivers mentioned in this article but none of them would be stars if you put them in the best equipment HMS has, they were just in over their head. The open wheelers had better follow Juan's example and get with the program. It won't take but a couple of years of low performance and someone will be getting their ride. Almindinger has to get off the porch and run with the big dogs this year or he'll be on the bubble.
