254 - Charlotte: Longest Race Ever

Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft return from the longest race in history on the greatest day in motorsports with plenty to discuss. First hear about the Dirty Mo Media Ultimate Suite Experience at Charlotte and what story Freddie told. Also learn about producer Jason Schultz’s time at the Indy 500. Then Freddie talks about how the No. 23 team mismanaged the damaged vehicle policy clock and ended their race prematurely.

Before jumping into spot on, spot off; the gang reacts to the news that Phoenix Raceway will continue to hold the championship race next season and what they want to see happen with the event moving forward.

First up in Spot On, Spot Off, Chase Briscoe’s attempt to pass Kyle Larson with 2 laps to go ended with him spinning out. The guys talk about Briscoe needing to capitalize on these moments and his progress this season.

Austin Dillon’s team applauded his attempt to pass for the lead which caused a big pile-up in overtime. The gang discusses how he put himself in the right spot to make the winning move but ultimately couldn’t hang on.

Next, Chris Buescher said he was okay after flipping in a wreck on the frontstretch but safety crews took over five minutes to flip him back over. The guys debate whether or not they had a problem with how long it took to flip the No. 17 over and if there’s a better way to do it.

The Indy 500 was red-flagged to set up a two-lap green flag finish and the guys react to fourth-place finisher Felix Rosenqvist’s comments regarding the decision. They talk about the fans deserving to have the race finish under green, plus Jimmie Johnson winning the Indy 500 Rooke of the Race.

The F1 Monaco Grand Prix’s start was delayed and switched to a rolling start after worries of inconsistent track grip levels. The spotters give their takes on how bad the conditions truly were and compare F1’s race control decisions to NASCAR.

Jeb Burton made comments to Noah Gragson after the Xfinity Series race about how he raced him and if Gragson deserves his ride. The guys share their displeasure about his comments and how he needs to handle his future twitter habits.

Finally, the Cup Series heads to WWT Raceway at Gateway for the first time this weekend while the Xfinity Series makes a trip to Portland International Raceway. The gang discusses what to expect for the new tracks and why Portland doesn’t make logistical sense for the Xfinity Series.

In Reaction Theatre, a fan calls in from the Dirty Mo suite and someone claiming to be Jason calls in from the Snake Pit.
