258 - Road America: Where's the Line?

Door Bumper Clear is back from celebrating the Fourth of July weekend at Road America to break down the road course weekend in Wisconsin. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft first discuss how they celebrated America’s birthday this past Monday and offer DBC host Casey Boat an opportunity to try her hand at spotting.
To begin Spot On, Spot Off, the spotters talk about Tyler Reddick outdueling Chase Elliott to earn his first Cup Series win. They highlight Reddick’s growth since his Xfinity Series titles and the possibility of him leaving Richard Childress Racing at the end of 2023.
Sunday’s Cup race did not have a naturally-occurring caution and was one minute shorter than the Xfinity Series race. The guys talk about the drivers’ road course skills and how cautions for stage breaks are hurting the on-track product. Could stage breaks one day be eliminated on road courses? The crew debates.
Contact between Noah Gragson and Sage Karam during the Xfinity Series race caused a multi-car pileup. The gang breaks the drivers’ comments after the race and if NASCAR should have penalized Gragson for the incident.
Ty Gibbs passed Kyle Larson on the final lap to earn his fourth win of the year. The guys give credit to Gibbs for showing maturity racing against the reigning Cup Series champion and not needing to pull a bump-and-run move on him.
No driver in the Cup Series has three wins after the first 18 races for the first time in history. Hear the crew’s thoughts on how many more different winners they think will surface before the playoffs and if any drivers will be able to point their way in.
Finally, the guys weigh in on Formula One driver George Russell’s comment about fans not having the right to boo drivers. The guys discuss why Russell needs to have thicker skin and fans might not be booing because they don’t like him as a driver.
Finally in Reaction Theatre, fans call about the Noah Gragson and Sage Karam incident, Jesse Iwuji's run, and celebrating Reddick’s first win.
