There is a element that Chicago at the time was a one off so he could full send and go for the win compared to tonight which is more developmental where he wants to show he gets laps in and shows on a oval he can keep the car clean.Yeah. I mean, I'm all in on Shane. But he isn't close.
He specifically mentioned that at the start of the race he was using the brake to slow the truck down to turn and eventually learned to use the the brake to help the balance of the truck on corner entry. In other word, he was far too slow on corny entry and didn't realize until later he could be more agressive with hand and feet on corner entry..
Great learn for him. But he clearly isn't ready to run a cup race on an oval, good call by Marks.
I thought it would be a good idea to throw him into cup, but I don't think he's quite got the muscle memory yet..
If he were to run that truck full time the rest of the year (impossible, I know) he'd be cranking out too 10s by the last few races imo. He has the talent and the understanding of racecraft, just needs more reps.
