So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, and good night..that’s right folks Robert Yates is making come changes and he is starting at the top. General Manager, Eddie D’Hondt, was fired yesterday by Robert Yates as part of a restrucing effort over at Robert Yates Racing.
As you will also recall, Elliott was removed from #90 busch car so that he could concentrate more on his Cup car and Yates could work on the development of drivers Stephen Leicht and Matt McCall. However, Yates announced yesterday that Elliott will be moved back into the #90 car starting this Saturday. Yea! This means more chances to watch Elliott race.
I hope these changes help. Elliott has struggled somewhat this year some not of his doing. I mean, how do you qualify 8th at Darlington and then end up 29th. He struggled all day. His crew could not get it dialed in for Elliott. And then last week during the Open qualifying, BAM! I was so upset! When they interviewed Elliott, you could see the disappointment and frustration in his face and his voice. I know Elliott fans everywhere are hoping these changes will help what every is going on over at Yates.
Good Luck this week Elliott!
