The article doesn't say so but NASCAR teams employ more than just wrench-spinners. There's a lot of office types too.
The article does say so.

For those outside the industry it may seem that NASCAR teams are comprised of nothing more than mechanics, crewmembers who perform the pit stops during races, and drivers. But Frood points out that there are many positions within a team.


“There are so many different employment opportunities within NASCAR – mechanics, welders, marketers, accountants, engineers, pit crew athletes, truck drivers, public relations professionals, social media managers, etc.,” he said.

As opposed to your own verified facts from nowhere but your imagination?
@StandOnIt imagination is often presented as statements of fact. That's his game.
lol
The article: Forbes
reported by: Greg Engle Contributor. I have been around and covered NASCAR for over two decades.

Was listening to loose ends this am and heard 2 interesting things

1) Scott Graves said he thinks a lot of the issues that Ford has had this year was due to each team kinda being on their own island. Everyone was showing up trying their own things and there was very little sharing of data in the Ford camp.

2) Andy Petree said that a lot of single source parts are costing teams significantly more than teams were lead to believe.

How the hell could this be? Sharing info is standard operating procedure now. This is on Rushbrook if you ask me. Get your house in order.

So IMO what is amazing about this car so far is the comers and goers in terms of teams and manufacturers. Chevy started strong. Toyota has caught up. Ford is bitching. This can turn in a couple of races as opposed to years past where you were looking at several races to claw back. This is probably about limited practices and learning. I wonder where we will be by Phoenix. Fascinating stuff....but will it be sustainable? At some point, all solutions converge in the engineering world (I think).
