Majors and Freddie Kraft talk about the difficulty drivers had passing on Sunday, the drivers safety meeting with NASCAR, the DBC trackside live show on Saturday, and fellow podcast host Conor Daly’s Cup debut.
    First in Spot On, Spot Off, the guys discuss NASCAR throwing a caution for a sign on the track late in the race. Brett expresses his displeasure for NASCAR allowing signage like that on the track and explains why game seven moments shouldn’t be decided like this.
    Chase Elliott and AJ Allmendinger lote the lead on the second-to-last restart costing them both the win. The guys applaud both drivers’ aggressive moves but question if Allmendinger should have raced Elliott cleaner because he’s a playoff driver.

Great show

Such a good show.

Wait on the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop!

Only in America can kids who were high school bus monitors grow up to be race car spotters and podcast celebrities.

Filling the stands

When they start racing they will fill the stands. You can sit on the side of the interstate and see a nascar race. A car will come by every 2/3 seconds.
Bubba is just a nascar token.
