Ganassi teams haven't gotten the memo yet

A day after car owner Chip Ganassi blasted his poor-performing Cup team, nothing happened in Texas to really make him feel any better.

Juan Pablo Montoya (19th place) and Reed Sorenson (24th) both finished two laps off the lead and dropped in owner points. And that was after Dario Franchitti didn’t even qualify to race.

Montoya slipped three spots to 20th in owner points. And Sorenson, who hasn't finished better than 18th since a fifth-place finish in the season-opening Daytona 500, is down to 29th.

Franchitti is 39th, dropping only a spot without racing.
