234 – Texas: Bad Blood

Only three races remain in the NASCAR season. Spotters T.J. Majors and Brett Griffin are in the Bojangles Studio to breakdown the weekend of action from Texas Motor Speedway. Hear the guys react to the (too?) long 500-mile afternoon in the Lone Star State, how absent Freddie Kraft’s driver Bubba Wallace contributed to the attrition of the race and where a strong day leads Brad Keselowski and TJ in the playoff standings.

The gang then dives into the continued Kevin Harvick vs Chase Elliott feud. NASCAR spoke to both parties involved last week, warning of serious consequences if their battle continued. Did both drivers abide by that? Should NASCAR be stepping in like this? The guys answer these questions and hear what Harvick said about Elliott post-race on Sunday.

Kyle Busch was not very happy with his performance at Texas, vocally complaining about the racing over the radio. He went as far as sharing NASCAR Executive Vice President Steve O’Donnell’s email over his radio. Find out what the crew thinks about Busch doing this and what repercussions it might have.

Denny Hamlin and Chase Briscoe exchanged heated comments during Sunday’s race, as contact between the two cut Briscoe’s tire down. Hamlin wasn’t very happy with how he was raced and delivered a fiery jab over the radio. Hear what he said and how their incident from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course race continues to linger.

Following the race, Kyle Busch was asked about the lack of respect on the race track. Busch didn’t hold back in his response, sharing how he believes the younger drivers have negatively impacted the respect shared among competitors. Do the spotters see the same thing in the NASCAR Cup Series? They explain.

During last week’s Next Gen test at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL, NASCAR confirmed the 2022 aero package. Does the gang agree with even lower horsepower next year? Their responses may surprise you.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps gave strong praise for the Next Gen car last week, saying it will cure-all that currently ails NASCAR. Hear what the guys have to say about that comment and whether or not they think it will happen.

The pre-race drivers meeting is likely an event of the past moving into 2022 and the table believes that is not a good decision. Listen to why the drivers meeting has served a very valuable purpose previously, even if it’s not competition-related.

Charter talk heated up again this week as 23XI Racing’s deal for a second charter fell through. Hear what that says about the current market and how this may impact teams next season. Plus, hear what the spotters would like to see happen to open up the field to more competitors.

In Reaction Theatre, Brett is accused of bias, the guys get into a faster car or fastest driver debate, TJ is warned ahead of Kansas and a sleep aid commercial makes its debut.
