How do you know that though
In the case of the 25, it was never true. As for the 21, it IS true, because Penske sends up and coming engineers and crew chiefs over there to hone their skills and then brings them home to the mother ship to work on the A team if they succeed. It's not a coincidence that Bullins earned his stripes over there, and Hassler is the next guy being called home. It's a fine strategy and probably benefits everyone involved, just keep in mind that the 21 car is NOT the equal to the 2,12 and 22.

At the conclusion of this season I will have been a member here for 4 years. I never thought I’d be a contributing member of an Internet forum but here we are. I have seen in my time here a member derail multiple threads with multiple identities each time he was suspended, various Cup points systems complaints of which I was a participating culprit in just a few, Angst about how a Cup owner spends his money outside of racing, Push Rod debate, crystal ball predictions about Wilkesboro and Rockingham coming back, speculation if a sponsor is a real sponsor even if they cut a check to a team and their name is on the car but you can’t buy product at Walmart , and probably other mind numbing exercises I’m forgetting but this..this Di Burrito debate has been the MOST exhausting topic since I’ve been here. No mas...I tap out. Fire Kyle Busch and put Matt in the 18.

I'll just say two things. First, participation in ANY of these threads is OPTIONAL. If a topic is not for you, stay out of certain ones and maintain your sanity. If you think one derails, move on. Second, I'm sure your last sentence was mostly in jest, but just to be clear, I don't ANYBODY on Matt's side is saying that or anything close to it. I think most of his supporters are saying (myself included) is that he has aquitted himself well enough to stay right where he is, no more, no less. The problem with this thread is that it long ago moved past an honest assessment of the situation and become a personal thing against both Matt and his supporters.

It turns into a exercise that’s different than an optional one if the same topic dominates multiple threads

I have a feeling Matt is going to get lapped at Kansas. Of course with the wave arounds and lucky dogs he probably wont stay that way, but with a long green run I think it is possible

Graded out to a B, as you failed to mention Danica...she has to be in there somewhere. Your write-up would have been a solid A otherwise.

I came around here on the tail end of Danica, missed most of the fun I think

Well he finished P4 at Kansas in the spring and P6 at Michigan in the fall and have had top 10s at tracks like Atlanta and Texas, so they don’t have a bad 1.5m program. All just comes down to circumstances.

I agree with that one.
