  • Changes at Team Menard

    Heard from a source very close to the team that there could be both a new team manager and chief mechanic put in place after the season is over. Altought the list of replacments for team manager is very short, one possible replacment, who is currently with the team, has won the 500 twice before and has 20+ years of experiance.

        The carnival like atmosphere of Team Menard continues for another year. Dog-Ring, weren't you telling us this would be the year that Menard loses their perpetual bad karma?

            I'm guessing a 2 time winner as a crew person. My guess, Butch Meyer

                  Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Butch already the team manager?

                    Yep. Moved from the engine shop manager to team manager after the Greg Ray mess, I believe.

                      Owen Snyder would be stupid to leave Cheever.

                        Unless, of course, Cheever doesn't have a program for next year.

                          Pretty much vindicates Mr. Dismore now doesn't it? I tried to let you all know what I knew about the mess there and a lot of people jumped all over Mark. They do have problems, bad ones. Changing the gear ratio set up in the middle of the Michigan 400 on pit road was a testament to that.

                          Too bad it's too late for Mark on this one. He could have been a steadying force for the team if they were machanically sound.

                          For the teams sake let's hope this news is true. It would be a positive step in the right direction. I don't think Jaques could even bring one of the current buggies home.

                              Well Well ............ so it is the equipment now. Hmmmm, well I will say the gear change in the race was a Bozo No-No, But the team manager had NOTHING to do with that. Menards High paid MORON engineer was the master behind that mess. Get it ... Mark was a good consistant driver BUT, he is not the go getter he once was. As for the rest of the team they are working on getting a driver to charge to the front ....... The car and the engine are there ............. Driver seat time isnt ...... It is obvious to us Damilt..... You got way too much BS time on your hands and not enough REAL info ........... get it straight or get a life .......... all these teams work hard .. do you ??
