Several candidates this week as opposed to the last few weeks. My pick is Blaney's crew chief. Left him out to get the stage win. He did get that, but never recovered from being in the back.

I'm going with the edgy take and saying MTJ for not driving through the 1's block and wrecking himself instead.
If you want guys to not drive like that, you have to teach them lessons. MTJ failed to teach Joey in 2018, and he let Ross walk all over him today.

Playoff point is pretty important, considering Penske didn't bring it today. Not sure I could blame his CC.
I'll go with the FOX production crew who can't let us watch more than 5 seconds of good racing action without switching to something insignificant.

Blaney had tire problems and was off sequence, so it was a good call to stay out and get the stage win.

The wheels falling off cars doesn't make the list? There HAS to be a way to acquire data from the air hose that shows a spike in pressure when the nut gets tight. Put 4 lights on dash. Lights no come on, I ain't moving. TPS type reading from a sensor in the hub. Needs X pressure to turn light out.

Since the pit crews can't seem to adapt, gonna have to make it a mechanical/switch type of deal. Hamlin's would be caught by pressure kick in hose. No nut in gun, no torque applied & no spike in pressure.

Sorry, too much fun watching the tire outrunning Hamlin, much better than a Hamlin speeding penalty.

His ****** tire was the only thing faster than him today. Unbelievable. Crew gave him a lightning quick stop when average would have been sufficient for the win. Then, Bell with the loose wheel. Pit Crew Coach needs a talking to......

You talking about the 12, or 11?

Because this post describes Blaney to a T for the first 7 races of the season.

My biggest complaint or critique as an MTJ fan. Not a fan of being dirty and huge respect for him being one of the cleanest drivers, but getting your elbows out with some specific drivers sometimes is practically a must.
