Three Crew Chiefs Say What Their Drivers Must Do to Win Sprint Cup
Kevin Harvick is bringing a new car to the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend and as the third-place driver, will race flat out, crew chief Gil Martin said. But before Harvick goes for broke, the team is hanging out the "Gone Fishing" sign and headed to the Keys.
And Jimmie Johnson? Well, he's just a better driver than the other two, or so says crew chief Chad Knaus.
It may be that some of the things said Tuesday in a triple-header media conference featuring the three contending crew chiefs will - for motivational purposes - end up taped to one or another team's tool box in the garage at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Or it may be that it's just a lot of hot air that disappears into the air like so much exhaust smoke out of their engines.
