Millican getting treed and Grubnic smoking the tires on Sundays is about 50/50 I think.

"Currently, there has been no official statement regarding current crew chief Dave Grubnic's status for 2019."

Grubby going to Connie or DSR? I still think Connie, but would not be surprised if he goes to DSR.

IF Kloeber is going back with Clay, I would think it would be as a co-crewchief or Grubby has given notive that he's leaving. I sure can't see Grubby being fired to make way for Kloeber.

Me either. Clay's got a good gig going. Best year he's had. Numerous #1 qualifiers and was in the hunt for the championship not long ago. Would hate to break that up.

I definitely agree. But the team statement said nothing about a co-crew chief situation. Why would Grubby give notice? Another team must have made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Because from the outside, that team seemed to have real good chemistry. The reason they have been in contention for the Championship this year is because of Grubnic. Capco has been a juggernaut, so the Millican Team has nothing to be disappointed about this season. I think this is a shame for these guys as I don't think Kloeber will be very effective since he's been out of the day-to-day crew chief deal for too long.

This is anout as far out as I go on discussing rumors. This will probably be my last post on this until we get more concrete information;

Indeed it would be a shame IF they split up.

Kloeber's abilities would to could depend on how active / knowledgeable Clay has been with the tune-up and on the contract / agreement Clay and Grubby have on the data that's been accumulated.

Here's a potential conspiracy theory to ponder..... was there any bad blood between Jim-O and Grubby? Maybe Conrad worked a deal with Grubby that Jim-O didn't like.

OK, I'm done.

What season did you watch? If you may recall, they put together a consecutive string of smoke free runs that only the Capco team bested. Looked to me like parts breakage and an empty trailer did more to end that string than tuning. Even after two very disappointing events, they are still second.
