You’ll never risk any problems, whether it rains or you have an engine failure, which can keep you out of a race. I think he could have done with Richard Childress next season, but there was a problem – he could not pass points in the 2008 season, said Rusty Wallace, a analyst.Wallace ESPN’s colleague Tim Brewer, added: I think it’s a great decision because he wants to go and win races and win championships. He is the change for yourself, get into a good race car and he will get the job done.
They are proven winners and proven champions at Hendrick. The combination, he has had has not worked, and that’s no disrespect to anyone. I would if I show up he would not even have my helmet, and just ask what car should I want to get in? If I’d implemented a change and gone this far, I think I would make a big change.
