Okay class, it's time for today's math lesson. Today we will be learning about crew chiefs.....
Okay, so we all know that Kenny Francis is expected to be going to Red Bull racing next year with Kasey Kahne. Now, you know what happens when you assume, but I think it's pretty safe to say that Kahne will be joined at Hendrick Motorsports in 2012 with Kenny.
Okay, now time for math.
There is a 4 team limit for each Sprint Cup team.
There will be 4 drivers in 2012 at Hendrick Motorsports.
There then has to be 4 crew chiefs.
There are 3 crew chiefs signed on for a multi year crew chief position.
So, who's the guy left out?
So, as long as Dale Earnhardt Junior stays on board at Hendrick in 2012, and Kenny Franics joins the team, that means that one crew chief has to go. This would have to be Lance McGrew.
So, for all the fans wanting Lance McGrew to be replaced as Dale Jr's Crew Chief, this might be a good sign for you.
Now the question is when? Wouldn't it be better now than later?
Okay class, don't forget your homework. It's on the number of times Jimmie Johnson can win a championship.
