Grill opening is moving up towards being a real grill again, so they can't scoop air from under the car they're pushing.

Maybe we can get back to racing at Daytona? ?
Those are positive developments.

He is a great crew chief, but he couldn't turn Logano into a consistent winner. I think the jury is still out on Danica. Good driver, good for PR, but can she become a consistent threat? There are lots more teams/vehicles capable of running upfront in NASCAR vs. what she is used to in IndyCar.

Gibbs seems to be going backwards. Losing good people, and two cars that are nowhere most weekends.
