Looks like Dale will continue with UPS!
While it is an undeniable fact that Dale Jarrett's recent performances have been poor, it is just as important to point out that his teammate, Elliot Sadler, has not been doing well neither. Elliot Sadler is currently ranked 19th in points, with DJ ranked 21st in points respectively. With that said, many NASCAR critics and journalist believe that the majority of blame belongs to the team, and not to the individual drivers. After all, you are only as good as your equipment. The bottom-line is that Robert Yates Racing (RYR) has not built competitive cars for their drivers, and has had a hard time adjusting to the newer Ford Fusion chassis. The fact that RYR only fields two cars in the cup also hurts their chances, because they have lower amounts of data collected, with an even lower number of personnel and engineers to analyze that data, and to see what works...and in RYR’s case, what doesn't work. The teams that consistently perform better, i.e. Roush (5 cars), Hendrick (5), Gibbs (3), Childress (3), have a lot more chances to learn from mistakes and make appropriate changes to their vehicles every race weekend. Waltrip Racing will initially field three cars.Dutch Dawg said:Unfortunately, he has recently proven to be less than a great NASCAR driver with regard to either placing well or winning.
