Happy Hour: Is Honda Really Heading to NASCAR?

On this week’s Happy Hour, hosts Trey Lyle, Michael Massie and Caleb Barnes are joined by NBC Sports’ John Newby to discuss the NASCAR weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The quartet breaks down the recent speed shown out of Stewart-Haas Racing and the strong Vegas run by Noah Gragson. Then they talk what the future of Rajah Caruth could look like after scoring his first career Craftsman Truck Series win.

The guys then take on the biggest rumor surging through the NASCAR garage: is Honda coming to NASCAR. They speculate on what that would look like and what teams could swap over to the manufacturer if it does indeed join.
