252 - Kansas and Hailie Deegan: Don't Hold Back

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver and social media star Hailie Deegan joins Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft to debrief the weekend racing at Kansas Speedway. Hailie opens up about her transition from off-road to asphalt racing, her rise through the NASCAR ranks, and the eye-opening reason for switching manufacturer development programs.

First up in Spot On, Spot Off, the group discusses Joey Logano’s comments further fueling the feud between William Byron and himself. They talk about whether he’s transitioning into the villain role in the garage area and how they expect him to react if Byron retaliates.

Kurt Busch earned 23XI Racing’s second career win on Sunday and the crew discusses his late-race battle with Kyle Larson. Then, they get into the effect Busch has had on the team and Bubba Wallace.

Multiple drivers faced tire failures at Kansas and the group explains why teams’ aggressive setups caused the issues. Hailie talks about teams having to weigh the risk versus reward when considering the number of backup parts available.

Six Toyotas finished inside the top-10 for the first time since Watkins Glen in 2017. Hear why Denny Hamlin’s crew chief Chris Gabehart says their team is the most dangerous 22nd-place points team in history. Plus, the guys discuss where manufacturer parity currently stands.

ARCA team owner Billy Venturini went after Drew Dollar for wrecking one of his cars in an interview. Hailie shares why she’s on her former car owner’s side based on racing around Drew.

Finally, Door Bumper Clear producer Jason Schultz tries to explain the confusing Texas Motor Speedway All-Star Race format to the group. They question who at NASCAR is making the decision on the format and what they would do instead. Plus, Hailie shares her thoughts on the need to get younger fans interested in NASCAR.
