I agree, it's terrible when the announcers think they know more than the competitors in the race do and not only are they wrong but they don't correct themselves leaving a bunch of wrong info B.S. in the air. I have caught them in many lies this season so has everybody else. I still think credibility and thinking before you speak to be important to broadcasting. Any time there is a cerebral, strategy race with comers and goers, and the exact opposite of the Xfinity race, there seems to be the same complaints every time.Yes, but he then had fresher tires and started making up the defecit. I'd be interested to see the full pit deltas for both the #18 and #19 to know whose was faster. I have a guess. I'm arguing that Pearn stopping five laps later in that case didn't help but didn't really harm either. They couldn't just sit nearly 4 seconds behind the #18 and let the race play out. I think he took a quick gamble on a caution for a few laps, but then when the tire drop-off was set to get really bad, as it did for the #4, he went ahead and stopped.
