NEXTEL CUP SERIES 48 LOWES CHEVROLET A Team Player Johnson a great but very comfortable with the team concept By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week One of the obvious reasons that Jim mie Johnson has been leading the Nextel Cup point standings all year is that from El is an exceptional Hes been a con tender for the championship in each of his four full What may sometimes be overlooked is the remarkable relationship be tween Johnson and crew chief Chad Like most great the two comprise a mutualadmiration so He can understand what Im say said Johnson of Thats the hardest and I think it ap plies in any sport or Com munication is He under stands what I how I say it and what Im and he can fix Thats the amazing I thought I had all these crazy feelings in me and what the car was based on past but Chad can fix He can really visualize and see what the car is based on what I tell And address it and fix Its amaz Knaus prefers to focus attention on Johnsons Ive got a great racecar he Hes a great Thats what weve got Hes a guy who can get out there and If youve ever seen Jimmie drive and I mean truly seen Jimmie drive not just against the com petition When hes out there and hes and what he can do and how he feels the car hes able to communicate that back to me and the other team members at Hendrick Mo I think that hes truly above every other driver out He can truly feel the car better than anybody else out who turns 30 on has also had a model relationship with teammate Jeff though their fortunes have differed radically in re cent Johnson continues to lead the while a four time has faded from third to 15th in the past 12 KOBA usmam You we started to cooperate right out of the said We really tried some things that were a little bit different from the norm for the 24 car Gordon and for Hendrick We went to the race track I believe it was the first seven weeks of the 2002 season with the identical setup as the 24 the reason being that if we knew Jeff rolled off the truck and was we needed to be just as fast as he So that basically put the blame on Jimmie and not on beyond that after our first couple of wed see where we stacked up on the board and start ed going our own We felt what Jimmie was more comfortable with and what I felt the car needed to be faster about seven weeks into thats really when we gained our legs and started running Do Johnson and Knaus read each others not but I wouldnt use those said Were close enough to know how each other really lean on each other and get the most out of each Thats more the dynamic than anything Its something that I truly respect in that if he doesnt think were headed in the right direction or if somethings its not that I complete a sentence or he com pletes but well figure out how we really feel and fig ure out how to make it I think thats a key part to com municating standing up for what you believe And having people under stand it and see it with and thats a hard thing Rusty Wallace Ryan Newman The teammates still do not get Thats not exactly They dont feud they just have very little In marked contrast to the efforts of Roger Penskes teams in other forms of the two NASCAR teams go their own NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take For whatever this odd couple seems to do pretty After Wallace is fourth in the point standings and Newman is On the other neither has won a race in NASCAR has history of women behind the wheel Women driving stock cars is hard ly a recent Louise Sara Christian and Ethel Flock Mobley all competed in early NASCAR When Smith de her car owner instructed her to stop if a red flag Unfortu he neglected to tell the South Carolina driver what do if a check ered flag When the raced ended and other cars returned to the Smith kept on Someone finally found about her prerace in and the flagman finally brought her in by waving the red g 1 b Bi 1 0 wmf Fireball Roberts legend recounted In new book One of the best of the years NASCAR books is Fireball Legends Dont Fall from the by Godwin Kelly Carbon Edward Glenn Roberts better known as Fire was by far NASCARs most pop ular star prior to his death in Roberts was far ahead of his time in his his ability to deal with the media and his knack for pre senting a positive image to the pub He won 33 major beginning in Kelly quotes Bobby Allison as saying of He certainly added some class to an early part of this Industry that started down there in the you know what I out there in the He was one of the ones that did really good things for the sport in his iEWERS FROM OUR READERS These guys can but they cant speak English Over 20 drivers have earned over a million dollars this but Im curious Id like to see a replay of all the postrace interviews just to see how many times they all say you One would think that earning that kind of money would make it easy to hire a tutor to teach proper Ronald Denk A Jv it ;
