257 - Nashville: Breaking Point

Door Bumper Clear returns from a trip to Music City at Nashville Superspeedway to break down the first of a 20 race stretch to end the season. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft first talk about their adventures in downtown Nashville this past weekend. As NBC now takes over as NASCAR’s broadcast partner, the crew discusses the rise of streaming platforms as Peacock hosted both the pre-race and post-race shows.
To start Spot On, Spot Off, the guys dive into the top running Toyotas electing to pit during the final caution and getting beat by Chase Elliott who stayed out. Although they demonstrated speed improvement from Sonoma, Freddie explains why he thinks the Toyota's did not have the raw speed to stay out on old tires.
Next, the spotters talk about NASCAR not throwing a caution for Brad Keselowski limping around the race track after making contact with Cole Custer on the final restart. Producer Jason Schultz references an article about NASCAR changing its procedure on throwing cautions and T.J. explains why they should have thrown the caution for the damaged No. 6 car.
Kyle Busch made comments over the radio about his car not handling well in traffic after being unable to pass Chase Elliott for the lead. T.J. and Freddie explain why it became increasingly difficult to pass as the race went on compared to when he stormed through the field early. Brett acknowledges he appreciates the entertaining quotes Busch provides and shares how he feels about team radios being public during races. Also, they talk about Busch still not having a contract for next year.
Bubba Wallace showed his frustration with angry comments over his radio after he had to return to pit road to tighten a loose wheel. Freddie talks about how he’s never seen his driver this animated before and why it’s justified based on their speed that’s continuously negated by pit crew blunders.
Finally, Adam Stern tweeted about NASCAR being close to announcing a street race in Chicago for next year and that they are willing to drop a road course. The crew talks about why the track configuration doesn’t need to be overly complicated and which road course event it should replace.
In Reaction Theatre, fans call about NASCAR not throwing a caution because Chase Elliott was leading, potential loose wheel penalty alternatives, and a song about the last episode's scheduled guest canceling last minute.
