Matt Kenseth Needed A New Crew Chief

I can't be happier to see that today Drew Blickensderfer was promoted to Kenseth's Cup team. To me, Chip Bolin just wasn't the right choice to fill in after Reiser and seemed to work better as an engineer. I listened to Kenseth for a good bit of the race in Martinsville in October, the one where he finished in the top 10 despite spinning out early. He was upset at Bolin for not updating him on things like the pace car's position on the track, and other small but important things. Combined with the reunion of spotter Mike Calinoff, I think the #17 team should be back contending for wins and a 2nd championship next season.
