|The pressure is on Logano.|
“We knew that bringing Jason Ratcliffe on as crew chief, it was going to take a little while for him to figure things out,” said Gibbs on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s Sirius XM Speedway with Dave Moody. “I think he’s done a great job, and there’s a great partnership among all our crew chiefs.”
Gibbs said he was encouraged by Logano’s tenth-place finish last weekend at Darlington Raceway, and hopes it will provide momentum for the team going forward.
“Joey rocked it,’ he said. “He bounced off the wall, came right back and finished up tenth. I think all the guys are looking forward to getting some momentum going. Fifteenth (in points) is better than last year, but we need to be in that Chase.”
Both Logano and sponsor Home Depot are in the final year of their respective contracts with JGR.
