I didn't understand the motive behind the dragster switch myself. It looks like it was an executive decision on Alan Johnsons' part to swap chassis. I'm sure Larry wasn't thrilled because I sure wouldn't have been. I think Del was internally setup to win the Championship, kinda like " Ok Larry, you got yours, now it's Del's turn." After all, when that chassis was so instrumental in Larry Dixons run, there really can be no other logical reason for the switch. I'd like to be a fly on the wall with all the crap that gets said within the framework of the teams when silly season hits. That is the stuff that most people never hear about because those parties involved don't want everybody and their brother knowing...

The plot thickens. I never found out why the sheik dropped support of Matt Smith.
I will go with Lucas in the second car if AJ has lost Al-Anabi support.

I think Dixon loved getting the new chassis. Those tubes have a lifespan and new is usually better. But, sometimes the new ideas aren't an improvement, its just the way it goes.

I think it goes much deeper than that, but we may never know the real issue.
