Larry McReynolds angry with SHR, Chase Briscoe, and team decisions

During his guest appearance on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio earlier this morning, Fox Sports analyst Larry McReynolds had a comment about Stewart Haas Racing's No:14 team and Chase Briscoe's performance. In McReynold's opinion, the team hasn't kept up with its progress and isn't doing what they were supposed to.

This season, Briscoe was expected to deliver much more than he did. The team's habit of counterfeiting parts is what makes McReynolds especially frustrated, and he can't understand why the team does it in the first place. “The only one to me that is just not good was counterfeiting a part that happened over there that 14 team at Stewart-Haas Racing.

Because I said it, if I’m Gene Haas, I gotta pay how much money for something we made that we finished 20th with,” McReynolds said.

As a result, McReynolds is unable to comprehend just how badly the team is doing.

Consequently, he believes that they must take urgent steps to change things within the next few years if they want to make any progress. “We didn’t win the race. We didn’t even get a top 10. We barely finished in the top 20…But to know that they absolutely was a non-factor, not even on the radar.

And to know that’s where I say, if I’m Gene Haas, I got steam coming out my ears and my nostrils,” McReynolds added. In order to achieve progress, SHR management decided to make a few changes. SHR's chief of staff Greg Zipadelli, spoke about the team's intentions, and he expressed his hope that the team will be able to achieve them.

“We made these changes in the best interests of the entire organization. Different people in new positions brings new perspectives. There’s still a lot of racing left to do this year, which means there’s still a lot of opportunity.

We need to seize these opportunities and make the most of them,” said Greg Zipadelli, SHR’s chief competition officer, about the change.
