So far, the Cup teams have raced at a restrictor-plate track, three 1.5-mile tracks, and tracks that are 1 mile, 2 miles and 0.526 miles in length. That’s enough of a sample size to know if your team is having a good year or not. And for teams having disappointing seasons, it’s not too early to think about crew chief changes.
Dave Rogers (pictured above) already took a leave of absence from the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing pit box, but that wasn’t performance related.
