238 – Tyler Reddick: Santa Brought Fireball

It’s the Door Bumper Clear Christmas Spectacular! T.J. Majors, Brett Griffin and Freddie Kraft return to the Bojangles Studio to bring the listeners the best gift of all this holiday season – a special edition episode. Fresh off Next Gen Car testing, Tyler Reddick joins the show and participates in the Christmas fun and Fireball shots. Plus, hear what exciting opportunity Dirty Mo Media fans will have in 2022.

Reddick currently holds the record for most spins in the Next Gen Car after three last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He’s here to tell us exactly what it’s like driving the new car, his thoughts on the major horsepower change and his expectations for what the racing will look like next season.

The spotters ask him numerous questions about what they have heard about the new car and all the changes currently being implemented. Plus, they share their observations from what they have seen out of the tests over the last month.

What has the crew been up to so far this off-season? Find out why Freddie hasn’t stopped spotting, T.J.’s adventures at a windy Buffalo Bills game and why Amazon is ruining Brett’s Christmas surprises.

In Spot On/Spot Off, the table reacts to NASCAR’s decision to increase the horsepower in the NASCAR Cup Series cars at intermediate tracks from 550 to 670, after being adamant that change wouldn’t occur. Hear how it will impact speeds, why Reddick prefers 550 on some tracks and whether or not he’s been asked for input.

Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch raised concerns about the Next Gen Car supply chain last month and NASCAR’s Steve O’Donnell said all teams should have five cars ready by the start of the season. The gang shares what they have heard and why having five cars may not be possible. Plus, get their thoughts about the supply chain concerns and how speedy repairs may change the game.

Spotter silly season is well underway and a lot of changes have occurred since the conclusion of the season. Hear what’s happening for 2022 and T.J. reveals which Xfinity Series driver he will spot for.

Anticipation is building for the Clash at the L.A. Coliseum. The crew reacts to the report about the cost of building the track, Reddick shares details about the track surface that he helped design and what to expect come February.

A new practice and qualifying format was revealed last month. Hear the spotters’ take on the changes and the condensed system, and what Reddick believes teams will be capable of changing in shortened allotted on-track times.

Then, it’s time for Christmas fun as everyone plays DBC White Elephant and reveal why each host has ended up on the naughty list this Christmas.

A special edition of Reaction Theatre includes the best songs fans submitted throughout the year as the gang reflects on the very memorable 2021 NASCAR season.
