“I don’t know. I think you maybe just leave them alone for awhile,” Dale Earnhardt Jr states via the Dale Jr Download.
We’ve had changes on top of changes on top of changes.
-Dale Earnhardt Jr
“We’ve had changes on top of changes on top of changes. I just think we haven’t made the racing better, we haven’t made it worse. With all the aero changes that have happened maybe in the last 5 years.”
“We haven’t really seen a difference in the racing. Where you say, ‘Oh ok, that’s a great direction or that’s made a difference’ ”
“I don’t know that there’s a change that you can make or count on or depend on. There’s no point in changing things, just to be changing.”
“So I think I’d leave it alone. Let this ride out another year or two.”
“The teams, whatever change you make, they’ll adapt. They’ll continue to find speed. So, I would just try to keep things the same for awhile.”
“Allow the teams to continue to evolve. That would be a good direction, I think. Some consistency!”
