I find it interesting that a lot of fans seem to think the removal of Barnhart from RC is going to solve the problem. Lets remeber that there were usually 3 people in RC & problems still happened. Do I think Barnhart was perfect...NO! He made mistakes but I also think fans sometimes screamed about bad/inconsistent calls when it was more the fact that they did not agree with the call. The Toronto race jumps to mind. Everyone screamed about the lack of penalty on Dario Franchitti but seemed to ignore the fact the Ryan Briscoe pulled the same move and received no penalty or Marco Andretti dive bombs turn 1 on a restart and took out 5 cars...improving his finishing position by 5 places with no penalty.
