JR Nation's last ride
- May 19, 2014
Agreed. I’m still a big believer in JHN’s talent. GMS bit off more than they can chew with running Xfinity and Trucks. Neither program has a ton of outside sponsorship. The Xfinity team hasn’t been as good as the trucks. The 23 car is a 9th-14th place car most weeks. They don’t have the same raw speed to compete with the likes of the 20, 00, 2, 98, 22 and so on.I hope he can find something as well next season, but who knows what might happen with the GMS Xfinity program? Its a possibility it might shutter, but nothing is official yet. I'd like to see him in the 2 as well, but I doubt Fire Alarm is going to cover many races.
I'd hate to see him go back to trucks, he's performed well with what he has had this season. I just don't think GMS did enough in terms of providing equipment competitive enough for wins.
JHN has run circles around Gallagher in that car. But he’s also still young and prone to overdriving and tearing up cars. That certainly hasn’t helped a team with limited funds and struggling for speed.
