Hunglo, as you said, he has had his problem since the new car. When they were switching back and forth with the COT, he didn't seem to "get" the new car. Maybe the new crew chief can finally help him adapt to it. Tony Jr probably wasn't adapting either and pairing them up just multiplied the problems.
And, I happen to be a Bowyer fan. Watched him race since he raced locally and really like his driving. But I respect most of the other drivers, just have trouble with a couple of them.

I was watching some of the Dover race and heard via a radio conversation between Joonyer and his new crew chief what has been Joonyer's problem for a very long time.
Joonyer radioed that the car was better, however, still a little lose. The crew chief radioed back and said, we will keep the car a little lose because when the track rubbers up it will get tighter. Joonyer said back, I don't know what you just said, however, the change did make the car better.
All drivers with any knowledge and most real fans, understand that when a concrete track is green (devoid of tire rubber) the car will be lose and as rubber is laid down by running the race the car will get tighter. Joonyer is definately not the brightest light on the Christmas Tree.

Watched the race. The only time Jr moved up was when cautions landed to his favor (and there were two mystery debris cautions where we never saw the debris or the trucks going out to fetch it, but both cautions helped Jr improve his position) under the green flag, Jr moved back and forth within a few spots of where he came out. No "racing" just holding position. Just like always. Jr finished out of the top ten and Hendrick congratulated him in the pits after the race. Congratulations Jr, you're the 11th loser, you didn't suck so bad today, but you still didn't RACE, either.
