CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Chip Ganassi says his NASCAR organization was ``just pathetic'' last season, and that led to sweeping personnel changes to his teams.
The owner of Earnhardt Ganassi Racing spent the offseason shaking up his organization after Juan Pablo Montoya finished 21st in the final Sprint Cup standings and Jamie McMurray finished 27th.
Ganassi was one of the most aggressive team owners this winter. He let go three top executives, made widespread personnel changes and nabbed a crew chief for Montoya from Hendrick Motorsports.
The NASCAR struggles are a far cry from Ganassi's other teams: Dario Franchitti gave Ganassi his fourth straight IndyCar title last season, and his Grand-Am teams have won the last two championships.
