Following an early loss at the recently completed NHRA Route 66 Nationals, as well as a string of other questionable losses, Gray said there seems to be other gremlins at play. As a result, the car was sent to the Don Schumacher Racing chassis shop from a thorough inspection as well as a front-half chassis replacement.
