Frontstretch Podcast: Denny Hamlin On Fire, Jeb Burton Chats Fun Opportunity With JR Motorsports

In a new edition of the Frontstretch PodcastDustin Albino and Mike Neff talk about Denny Hamlin‘s recent hot performances, including his victory at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend.

Then, the duo discusses a strong performance from the Stewart-Haas Racing organization, seeing Clint Bowyer and Daniel Suarez earn top-five results. But what’s preventing the company to reach Victory Lane?

What a difference a week makes –  as Jimmie Johnson and William Byron shine for Hendrick Motorsports in the Lone Star State. On the flip side, another victory got away from Ryan Blaney, blowing an engine late in the race.

Finally, the duo discusses Martin Truex Jr.‘s sluggish start with Joe Gibbs Racing. After a pair of top fives in the opening four races, the No. 19 team has had just average finishes in the last three races.

Jeb Burton calls into the podcast to discuss a solid top-five performance for JR Motorsports in the Xfinity Series. At times, the No. 8 car was running among the top three, battling for the lead.

Burton mentions why that top-five run was important, feeling pressure to deliver in good equipment, why the finish was so emotional, the ups and downs of the past few years and the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule. He also states the goal is to be full time with JRM next season.
