Good to see Rick taking charge and making some decisions finally. Doesn't matter what any one else says or wants he's the man who makes the final call.

Gustafson will stay with M.M.

Look for Malec or another Hendrick employee to take over CC duties for the 88.

Bout time.

You should read the entire article....

"Mr. Hendrick and Martin have no desire to take Gustafson away from the #5 team after the way they dominated the Phoenix race. Now, the timetable is set for the All-Star race at Charlotte on May 16th. If both teams continue to perform poorly, expect a change the week of the All-Star race."

Rick needs to make a change soon.

Hendricks other drivers will be successful with whoever is their crew chief, not Jr. Why?, because Jr. isn't nearly the talent of Gordon, Johnson or Martin.
Wake up all, Jr. just isn't that good.

Jr. has talent and he is a good driver. Maybe a crew chief change would work. Maybe not. We won't know until a change is made. How are those Fords doing this year?LOL

Nothing can help Jr. he's already peaked. The rest of his career will consist of the same performances like Sterling Marlin or Terry Labonte had in their final years as a full time driver. You know like Bill Elliot. Great drivers in their time but their time has passed. For Jr. he is a so-so driver whose time has passed.

Why should the Hendricks drivers and their crews be separated because the 88 team, driver included seem to be sorely lacking?

From reading the article Mark is in agreement if the change goes thru. I really doubt Rick would separate the 48 team or the 24 team so since both the 5 and 88 are having difficulties he felt this was the way to go. If that doesn't work then who knows. I guess at this point anything worths a try.

Jr has talent, just not the same talent as his teammates.
The Fords are doing about the same as Harvick and Jr.- sucking!

What difficulties are the #5 team having? They looked fine to me all year so far. Blown engines are a Hendrick difficulty.
quote from the article "to see if both teams could improve on the slow start they have endured through the first part of the season'. thats what I'm talking about. Read the article.

I know it's from the article, I disagree with that statement. You quoted it as if you believed it so I responded to you..GET IT?
I apologize. I misread your comment. However I agree with you, I don't understand what their talking about. All the HMS teams had a slow start. Marks issues were with the engines not his crew.
