“There’s definitely a lot of things happening at RCR with the one Cup team going away,” Harvick said. “We’re adding three Nationwide teams and a Truck team so obviously there’s going to be some personnel changes and I think if we had gone out and won a championship you’d say you probably don’t need to do anything.
“But if we sit on our hands and don’t evaluate everybody’s position at this particular point I think we’d be fools. I would anticipate some changes.”
Childress has often swapped teams among his drivers as a way to shake up the organization, and there’s been speculation he’ll give Harvick the team Bowyer had used and crew chief Shane Wilson.
“I think me and Mike have had a lot of success together,” Hamlin said. “There are not many drivers and crew chiefs that have done better than us throughout our six-year run together. There’s something to be said about that.”
“When I look at our relationship, it’s pretty deep,” Hamlin said. “I feel like, with Mike, he’s helped me win a lot of races. It’s hard to sit there and point out anyone in the garage that I feel like can do a better job than him.”
QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: “I never thought that I’d say this, but I’m rooting for Tony Stewart,” Kurt Busch on the championship race between Stewart and Carl Edwards.
