My heart goes out to Dale Jarrett,Nascar changed a rule this year stating past Nascar champions can only have 6 chances to be guaranteed the last spot in the race (43rd)if they don't qualify on time.
It has always been any past champion may use unlimited chances to beguaranteed the last spot if they qualify horrible,or their car is wrecked during practice etc...(if their is more than one champion needing the last spot, the most recent champion wins)
Poor Jarrett hasn't got along with alot of crew chiefs over the past 3 years. I think it is because he is so smart and articulate,and hasn't met a crewchief that understands what he wants and needs i order to win races and a championship. Also, Toyota is the new kid in town, and it has had a hard time proving itself worthy.....Jarret should have stayed with the 88 car,he took a big risk switching to a new car maker....
I hope the cars improve ,I want to see Jarrett out there competing,it wasn't the same without him racing last week,and watching him commentate made me sad. he is an awesome river, and need s to be out there competing...so does Micheal....
