The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series was back turning left and right Sunday (Aug. 15) as it made its inaugural trip to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. And boy, it will be hard to forget their stock car racing debut in a race that turned into a Demolition Derby-style ending down the stretch.
AJ Allmendinger scored his second Cup win but the first for Kaulig Racing, which plans to go full-time Cup racing in 2022. But the story everyone will be talking about this week is Denny Hamlin getting dumped by Chase Briscoe after Briscoe was penalized for cutting the first corner. Who was in the wrong? Get Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek’s take in the latest edition of Frontstretch‘s Stock Car Scoop. Bryan and Adam also address the curbing issues that led to a number of late-race wrecks along with how NASCAR should handle their future races with IMS.
