I have to go with Denny Hamlin's tire changer/pit crew guy. The tire changer rolled the tire where it was difficult to retrieve. And the guy that stepped over the wall to get the tire. Best car all day lost of dumb pit execution.

On the track, Bell for wrecking himself off Ross's bumper when he had one of the fastest cars.

Off the track, Nick Adams and anyone who takes anything he says seriously.

I sort of remember them saying that bells digital rearview mirror stopped working, if so his spotter was the bonehead.

Toyota as a whole. They clearly had the cars to beat but ended up screwing it up

The racetrack.
Care to explain? I thought it was a pretty good race and according to the rate the race thread so did most everyone else.

He obviously wasn’t there. Great atmosphere at the track Saturday & Sunday.

Personally I thought it was better than St. Louis this season for me. Both had about 60,000 people for their race.

Bell. For sure. The same thing he did to Ross he did to Larson on lap 1.

Toyota/TRD did their part by putting the absolute fastest cars in the hands of their teams where raw speed is everything. WE didn't screw anything up, OUR teams didn't execute.

I was just under the assumption the HE was all things Toyota related, but you learn something new everyday

I am, but I am manufacturer first. I get really frustrated when WE can't hand OUR teams what they need to complete....see road courses. When WE give them what they need, but they don't execute...while that disappoints me, it isn't nearly as frustrating. I was very disappointed yesterday, but not frustrated.

Qualifying fast and being fast in the race are two different things. ;)
WE were fast in every session....Practice, Qualifying, and the race. Nobody had anything for US except those who didn't make mistakes. In the words of Brad Gille....This isn't a fast car race.

I would think there would be six crew chiefs, six car chiefs and
a bunch of team engineers really disappointed to learn that the sole credit for bringing really fast cars to Michigan goes to the manufacturer.

If Michigan isn't a fast car race what is? Martinsville???? Did the slowest car win the race?

That's the damn point...the fastest car didn't win the race. There is more to this than raw speed. Ask Denny.

Yeah, I'm going to need that one explained to me. If a wide, sweeping two-mile oval isn't one of the best configurations to produce a 'fast car' race, then what is it?
Did the fastest car win? No. Did the car with sufficient speed and near flawless execution win? Yes. Not a fastest car race.

Ask Rodney Childers about how much can be done with a pig of a car. He has spoken to this. My point....TRD handed the teams the tools to win. The teams didn't execute. Harvick has spoken to this repeatedly as well.

yep, not fast in the race leads to not winning. Maybe this week
