246 - Richmond: Get Out of the Way

No empty chairs could be found in the Door Bumper Clear studio as the crew is back from this weekend’s racing from Richmond Raceway. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft discuss the first short track race of the season and if the Next-Gen car was able to improve the track’s product.

To kick off Spot On, Spot Off, the trio discusses how Denny Hamlin’s comments about a certain animal lead to his first win of the season. Also, hear whether or not they think Toyota can continue to step up their game after a rough start to the season.

The crew then questions why NASCAR waited to hand out a penalty to Kyle Busch’s team for breaking the rules 200 laps prior. They talk about why NASCAR missed it earlier and how it may have been brought to their attention. JGR also debuted a new pit stop choreography on Sunday. Learn the pros and cons of this new style of changing tires.

After Kevin Harvick nearly caught race winner Hamlin in the final laps, Harvick expressed frustration with the spotter stand. Learn why having a difficult time maneuvering through lap traffic on Sunday around a teammate and another Ford may have cost him a win.

What’s the state of jobs in NASCAR right now? Stewart Haas Racing’s Brian Murphy joins the show after he tweeted about the evolution of the NASCAR workforce in recent years. Learn why there’s more opportunity than ever to work in the sport.

Ty Gibbs’ “bump and run” to win the Xfinity Series race on Saturday raises concerns about whether or not he will eventually be able to take what he dishes out. The gang then debates his career ark and how quickly he could rise to the Cup Series.

Finally, the crew reacts to Kevin Harvick saying Keelan and other young go-kart racers want to pursue Formula One rather than NASCAR. They explain how NASCAR’s failure to attract a younger audience plays a role.
