Frontstretch Podcast: Breaking Down The Round Of 8

Unlike the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway last weekend, this week’s Frontstretch Podcast is highly entertaining with Dustin Albino and Mike Neff breaking down all things Kansas and the Round of 8.

Chase Elliott won his second race in the playoffs at Kansas and his third in the past 11 races. The No. 9 team enters the Round of 8 as the hottest team in NASCAR. Meanwhile, Kevin Harvick let another victory slip through his grasp by speeding on pit road.

The duo discuss the biggest surprises of missing the cut: Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson. What’s really going on with the No. 42 team, and can they turn it around?

Finally, we give our Championship 4 predictions. Can all four Stewart-Haas Racing cars make the Final Four? Maybe. Neff gives his take on why that’s so.

Also, we talk some NASCAR XFINITY Series racing. If we could choose either John Hunter Nemechek or Ross Chastain to pilot the No. 42, which both have won in, who would we take?

Oh the words regarding “that race” at Martinsville……

Before Kenseth took him out, he was doing “O.K.”? Ah no, he was dominating and a short couple of laps away from win 7 for the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t mind opinion, just don’t pass it off as truth. And with him the truth is always wishy washy to play a narrative with many “reporters”. Logano was in the lead by a wide margin and had 207 laps led with 47 or 48 to go, the most of the race. I would say, without 100 percent certainty he was on the way to a 4 in a row win, something not done at that time since Jimmie Johnson. Oh those pesky facts…Doing “O.K”. come on now.
