Been away for awhile, but Joey needs more speed and less pit crew screw ups. Plain as day on the reply in slow-mo. What the hell!

It's always been a team effort and always will be, no matter who drops the ball. Statistically, the pit crew will make the lion's share of mistakes, one driver to six pit crew members, albeit, the driver has many more opportunities to mess up.

Speed. Joey recovered from a 2 lap deficit at Bristol and then again last night, a 1 lap deficit. What's amazing is *how fast* he recovered in both instances. The All-Star race, he was so far out front, it was a WTF? moment.

Last night coming from a lap down he made it to 9th place, with a few laps left to go. But, he seemed happy just to stay there, as did all the other drivers. There was no racing at the end. None.

The team has lots of speed, but for some reason they're showing it in a very measured way.

Hi,

Congrats to the 78 team and Martin Truex.

They were truly the best of the best. That being said the 22 team and Joey were up to the task. Congrats to Joey and his 22 team for winning the lost lap back the old fashioned way, they earned it by passing all the cars on the lead lap. That in itself was fantastic!

It was great to watch Joey keeping the 22 car up front. He was definitely a top 4 or better.

So let's go on to the next race for his first win this season. It is their waiting.

Joey, I loved seeing the pic of you of you sitting in your 1924 Ford Model T. It was a hoot. If it was shown on the pre race show I am sorry I missed it.

Keep up the good hard work.

Capt Neil

Gee I know that, have been watching him for years. HIS TEAM IS SCREWING UP! And the speed isn't there, the way it has been. His laps led is well behind what it used to be. I am his biggest fan but a realist. I am not worried about him not winning a race. He won Daytona and didn't win till August. Nope the consistent speed is not there, on either team. Fact
