274 - Homestead & Kaitlyn Vincie: All Eyes on You
Door Bumper Clear is back from Homestead-Miami Speedway to break down the second race of the Round of 8 for the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft are joined by FOX Sports host Kaitlyn Vincie to talk about how she got started in NASCAR, the possibility of doing play-by-play in the future, and her husband’s career as a crew chief. Then, they talk about Kyle Larson dominating the race on the high line, Freddie’s hotel trouble, and research Florida man stories.
First up in Spot On, Spot Off, Bubba Wallace became the first Cup driver suspended for an on-track incident since Matt Kenseth in 2015. The crew discusses if they agree with the suspension and why NASCAR needs to keep the penalty the same going forward. Plus, Freddie breaks down John Hunter Nemechek’s weekend in the No. 45 car.
Marty Snider said that NBC Sports was declined by Bubba Wallace for a pre-race zoom interview. The table talks about when they think it will be the appropriate time for Wallace to make public comments and what his reception in the garage will be like at Martinsville. Plus, Freddie labels the interview request as clickbait.
Kyle Larson spun leader Martin Truex Jr. on pit road during the final pit stop on Sunday. They explain what factors lead to Truex spinning and applaud the pit crew for completing the pit stop.
William Byron holds the final Cup Series Championship 4 spot by 5 points over Denny Hamlin heading into the Martinsville cutoff race. The gang breaks down what each driver has to do to make it to Phoenix and predicts what the racing at Martinsville will look like.
Then, Kyle Busch called out Joe Gibbs Racing for not resigning him in the docuseries. They talk about how big Busch’s offer from JGR was and why he shouldn’t have turned it down.
Finally, Denny Hamlin says he would rather have 60 wins in his career than a championship. The crew talks about why the championship has lost its prestige and why they would rather win certain races over getting lucking in the finale to win a title. Plus, does TJ think Hamlin is a Hall of Famer yet?
In Reaction Theatre, hear fans call in about wanting the championship race back at Homestead, Larson spinning Truex, Jason’s experience at the Panthers game, and a rap about Sunday’s race.
Later, the group weighs in on NASCAR and tracks using on-track incidents that resulted in penalties to promote upcoming races. Then, hear what is Kaitlyn’s favorite interview she has done so far in her career.
Finally, find out what to expect at Martinsville this weekend and who everyone is picking as the DBC Picks championship comes down to the wire.
