Podcast #49 — Kevin Harvick Puts on Clinic at Atlanta

Show notes:

Recap the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 @ Atlanta Motor Speedway:

  • Kevin Harvick Dominates Xfinity and Cup Series races
  • All veterans up front
    • Have to go back to Kyle Larson in ninth before you start to find the younguns.
  • Austin Dillon comes home with a 14th-place finish after winning the 500
  • Darrell Wallace Jr. finishes a disappointing 32nd
  • Jimmie Johnson spins on his own again.
    • Finishes 27th
    • What is the deal with Jimmie?
    • After two races he is 35th in points
      • People ahead of him in points include: DJ Kennington and Mark Thompson (they only have run one race), Matt DiBenedetto, Jeffrey Earnhardt
  • Other than Jimmie, race was pretty incident-free
  • Issues with pit guns on pit road. Harvick had an issue. Others did too. Concern?
  • Post-race penalties: http://www.espn.com/jayski/cup/2018/story/_/id/22603621/atlanta-post-race-penalties-announced
    • Kyle Busch loses crew chief, jackman and tire carrier from next three truck series races
    • Previously suspensions have been across all three series? Do we like this single-series thing more or less?
