What in the world is wrong with Gibb’s Racing?
Another Bruton Smith first with the bi-lungual command to start engines
Nine different winners now in nine different Cup races is an incredible sign of NASCAR competition being tougher than ever
F for Jason Leffler
His job is probably safe since Gibb’s Racing has never fired a Cup driver before their contract is up, but Leffler’s bonehead move this week might make them reconsider. He was headed to the garage so why did he move out of his pit box and into traffic?
D for Gibb’s Racing Woes
One car in the wrong place at the wrong time, thanks in part to bad qualifying. The other car goes up in flames. This is not a season to remember for the folks at Gibbs
C for Kyle Busch
His rookie year has been something far less than spectaculer, but Kyle showed his cool this week. Coming home in 21st place is not what one expects from a Hendrick’s team but it was a start.
B for Ganassi Racing
Maybe three finishes in the top five deserves the “A” but they didn’t get the win. This was an amazing effort though as all the talk has centered on Hendricks and Roush lately.
A for Greg Biffle
Could easily have four wins this season if a few decisions or breaks had gone differently for the team. With performances like this it is no wonder that Roush wants this guy long term. Very few drivers can handle a loose car like Greg Biffle.
