    Kahne, dale jr or truex?

    Truex 6 allocations left, jr 3, and Kane 1..... Advice on who to start. I know qualifying is important at Atlanta. Planned on using Kahne at Charlotte.

    • Advice is a very dangerous thing!

      I have 2 Truex, 3 Jr, and 3 Kahne.

      With the exception of Gordon, Hendrick cars seem to have been struggling this week. Gordon wasn't the cat's meow in P1, but has been top 6 in Q, P2 and P3.

      With the exception of P2 in which Jr was 3rd quick, he has been a little lack luster this week. But that doesn't count him out IMO. Jr. has been riding my bench and has not moved from it.

      Kahne, while decent in P1, Q and P2, lost something in P3. *If* memory serves, and I didn't get to mind my P's and Q's as I normally would, he was one of the Hendrick vehicles who was having an issue trouble with tire rub in P3, same with JJ. Please consult others or a second opinion regarding that as my memory is not very good and I didn't get to watch as I would have liked.

      In the NNS, another race that for the first time in a long time I missed this week, Kahne was involved in a wreck. Regrettably, I do not know more with regard to the circumstances. With one Kahne left and planning to use him at Charlotte, I would save him. But that is me, and that is my ***opinion***. I had Kahne starting until early this morning. When I woke up, I swapped him out for Truex.

      With the exception of a poor Q run, Truex was top 8 in all three P sessions.

      My line up last night was:
      Start: 48, 5, 16, 43

      This morning I changed it:
      Start: 99,16,56,22
      Bench: 48,5,88,43

      Hopefully, I do not end up kicking myself LMAO.

      Good luck to you and everyone.
