Stock Car Scoop: Should Gateway Remain on Cup Schedule?

Plus, the hosts take a closer look at Carson Hocevar and Corey LaJoie‘s respective debuts in new rides. Did Hocevar put LaJoie in a difficult position with Spire Motorsports going forward?

The only tracks that should be on the schedule are tracks where my favorite driver wins…and certainly no tracks that have hidden zombie robots attacking brake rotors.


NO!!!! It’s an OVAL! It’s not a cookie cutter D-shaped track. Get rid of the cookie cutter copies.
