Chase Briscoe making a childhood dream come true, bringing the 14 car back to victory lane for his first Cup Series win! This week on the Bump N' Run Podcast veteran radio host Michael D. White, Daytona Ron, and Matt "The Stat Man" Reilly talk about the latest news including Steve O'donnell and Ben Kennedy's promotions.

Chase Briscoe held off some hungry drivers also looking for their first cup wins after a late race restart!
2nd Chastain – the second week in a row I thought Ross could win, just another solid performance, the win
is coming. No laps lead like last week, but the speed was there to do it, just didn’t have the opportunity
to take the lead on a restart.
3rd Reddick – not the best qualifying, but he had solid lap averages in practice, had some issues on pit
road late, but came back to battle at the end. He floated around 5-8 th all day long gaining stage points
along the way.
4th Blaney – Started on the pole, had a pretty solid day throughout leading 5 times for 143 laps, I thought
he was the clear favorite to win early on in the day.
5th Kurt Busch - I feel like he was floating around 17 th -18 th all day, honestly not sure where he came from.
6th Harvick – Solid day, I had him in my fantasy lineup since Wednesday, practice and qualifying went well,
I was confident in Harvick this week and he performed for sure, 6 th place but he had a top 3 car in my
opinion. Gained stage points in both stages’ great day for Kevin.
7th Kyle Busch – Started 11 th finished 7 th , just a solid finish from Kyle while some of his teammates
struggled yet again. For a while I didn’t think he would crack the top 10, he gained no stage points
8th Logano – He only led once for 4 laps but he was in the higher half of the top ten for both stage ends,
just a solid top ten car all day.
9th Suarez - punted AD3 who was having a good day running just in the top ten for both stage ends,
Suarez did what he had to do for 9 th .
10th Buscher – Snuck a top ten while his teammate and owner struggled all day long.
Larson looked great all day until the third stage when he blew the engine, a rare Hendrick engine failure
sent him to the garage early.

We have our Race grade, Checkers & Wreckers(Best and worst of the race weekend), and our Pick A Lane debate(will we see a shift in speed after the west coast swing, should we worry about Joe Gibbs Racing, and should Phoenix continue to host the Championship race?)

Plus our betting picks for this week's Fold of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the newly reconfigured Atlanta!

All that and more on this week's Bump N' Run Podcast!
