So don't blame them if your favorite crew chief didn't make the cut.With some help from two true experts, I'm going to tell you who are the best of the best at the hardest job in NASCAR. An NFL or NBA head coach, an MLB manager, a thoroughbred trainer, you name it.No, it isn't the drivers, although that occupation is tough enough. No job in sports requires more split-second decisions under more pressure in more adverse conditions than a crew chief at NASCAR's highest level.My ESPN colleagues Andy Petree and Tim Brewer -- two guys who know a thing or two about crew chiefing -- helped me put together this list.Petree won two Cup titles with Dale Earnhardt (1993-94).
