I buy the car, but the mechanic keeps it running. Do I get credit for buying the car? Absolutely. How about me hiring the mechanic. Yep, that too. But when the car breaks, and sits idly on the side of the road, not working at all, all my "credit" goes out the window until the mechanic fixes the car. The Dallas car was broken. Jerry bought it as is. He hired a great mechanic. Then he stepped out of the shop and allowed the mechanic to work. To some, Jerry gets credit for hiring the mechanic. To others, the guy who has the grease on his hands and kept the car at the front of the pack is to be held up as the most important of all. Now if you want to slide this to the race car analogy, Jimmy picked all the parts to fix it up, turned the wrenches, and drove the car to the finish line. Jerry signed checks in ink.
