If there are "team orders" or "throw the race"...

If there are "team orders" or "throw the race" Isn't that kind of on the crew chief & his tune ?
I mean we see the numbers on the driver, so we'd see a late light or butterflies closing etc.

What's the big secret ?

So, the drivers remarked on "track prep differences" But know one says what it was. % of VHT. What's the big deal saying what they're actually doing? Weird.

"Ford" parts under a Chevy body?

Still, doesn't explain why Robert & Courtney's cars are MUCH better than Johns.

JF's continuing issues.

What if they just switched John's car body with Robert's? So John would be driving Robert's car & visa/verse. Keep or increase the level of tuning info shared. Would the problems follow ????
