Dale Jr Would Block to Help Jeff Gordon Win NASCAR Championship
Hendrick Motorsports is a team of 4 and that does has it’s advantages. Dale Jr says he’d block the other 3 drivers if it would help Jeff Gordon win the championship.
This is where Martin Truex Jr is at a disadvantage. As a single car team he doesn’t have any teammates to help him test things in practice.
Beyond practice, Truex also doesn’t have teammates out there to block the other 3 drivers fighting for a championship. Instead he will be blocked more often than his championship competitors.
If it comes down the final laps it would certainly help to have a teammate between you and the closest points chaser behind you.
