Yesterday's race was too much equity of track/cars/driver for much of the race, Talladega has a new surface, cars have resticter plates, something has to GO!!

It was like watching a "moving parking lot" most of the race. anyone else think of like this also???

Sorry that Sterlin didn't finish better, but the Tech. Guy's have toget better at fixing the 'little' Gremlins. This kind of failure is a 50's type problem, not a "Today's".

Look at all the little ODD type failures of the last few years, too many cheap priced parts have lost races!!!!

I agree, Ginn needs to get all the resources available to make Sterlings car
able to win races and a much deserved championship.
Ginn wants to hire earnhardt Jr. and he is willing to pay the whoping sum of 28 million to get him. This money should be used to better all the race cars,so they can win and contend for the championship..
I like Jr. but I don't want him at Ginn.They have Sterling and nemechek signed fulltime and Martin,Boris Said, and some rookie part time. Ginn doesn't need another driver.
Also,I agree with ram driver,Sterling's tech aren't doing their job,nor ishis crew cheif. Afterall Slugger levy was fired from DUI,he didn't do a good job for Waltrip or Earnhardt JR.Also,isn't he one of the crew cheifs Dale Jarrod couldn't work with and had fired? Sterling likes him,I wish Lee McCall would leave Ganassi/Sabates and come to Ginn and be Sterlings crewchief again,they worked well together.I hope his crew is doing their jobs....

Maybe they should ask Hendricks for advice. They obviously seem to have the bugs worked out. After all, Ginn can aford to pay for the advice!!
