There have been plenty words written about Dale Earnhardt Jr. and there plenty of matching theories on his struggles in recent years. Of course, Junior is frustrated with his recent results and the feedback he at times gets from crew chief Lance McGrew. For instance, at Dover, Earnhardt thought something might be broke on the car, but when the crew looked at it during the race, they found nothing.
Later that week, McGrew said he wasn't looking for a change at Hendrick Motorsports and that was an important message to send to Junior.
Just because he's had a some tough results (running 30th or worse is no fun), it doesn't mean instant changes are needed. Junior and McGrew have been together for just over a year. It's important for Junior to learn some patience here and to build some trust in his crew chief. Sometimes it takes more than a year. And if they do endure and good finishesm, including a victory every now and then do come, then it will be all the more rewarding.
