Podcast #123 — Denny Destroys DiBenedetto’s Dream Day

Show notes

Recap: Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race from Bristol Motor Speedway

  • Hamlin catches Dibenedetto at the end.
    • Thoughts on Matt’s weekend
      • From NBC Sports: LFR switched to Toyota this season but was running a 2018 chassis Saturday, according to crew chief Mike Wheeler, who also said as “JGR learns stuff, we get upgrades.” Based on how well DiBenedetto ran at Bristol, where he led final Cup practice, qualified seventh and finished second, there was some speculation that the team might have received a full-fledged JGR-prepared Camry at Bristol.

“There’s a misconception out there about it being a JGR primary car,” Wheeler said. “It is a generation behind, but it’s good. If you put a good setup and good driver in it, it can go fast, and you saw that tonight.”

    • Problems with how Newman raced Matt in the closing laps.
    • Second weekend in a row with an excellent crowd
