Grubnic and Savage chose to leave Straightline Racing, prompting the hiring of Kloeber.

lol.... they were made offers (by Straightline) they chose to refuse?

I hope he ends up back at Kalitta.

3 out of the 4 Kalitta cars definitely need help. Hope there's no grudges from Connie unceremoniously firing him as a driver in the middle of a race weekend.

For the sake of Grubnicís dignity, I hope heís headed somewhere other than Kalitta. That being said, opportunities are limited in the world of Top Fuel. I hate to see this split, as they were definitely a David team among Goliaths, and it was impressive to see what they accomplished.

If Connie's check is large enough, dignity has nothing to do with it.

Besides, Connie would essentially be saying he was wrong to let Grubnic get away.

So you know Straightline made an offer for sure or you just speculating? Ever think he chose to jump ship because someone else made an offer?

If so it won't help. Dougie's best chance passed when Tobler ankled.

Keep an eye on someone who had a Matco toolbox heading to Texas.

You don't think Stringer made a counter offer?

So only Tobler has the ability to tune Doug to a championship?
