Welcome to a new weekly Frontstretch column that delivers on exclusive coverage, interviews and press conferences at the track each weekend. The Saturday before a NASCAR Cup Series race has a media bullpen for select Cup drivers, and interviews obtained by Frontstretch’s reporters will be posted in this column and on YouTube.
CONCORD, N.C. – Between silly season updates, the return of stage cautions, a new restart zone and reactions to the newly released 2024 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, Saturday’s (Oct. 7) media availabilities at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL provided plenty of unique answers from drivers across the board.
And that’s without mentioning the playoff battle, as four of the 12 playoff drivers will be eliminated from championship contention after the conclusion of Sunday’s (Oct. 8) Bank of America ROVAL 400.
On-site reporters Stephen Stumpf and Chase Folsom caught up with drivers before and after Saturday’s practice and qualifying sessions.
