Happy Hour: NASCAR Does the Waive with Kyle Larson

On this week’s Happy Hour, hosts Trey Lyle, Michael Massie and Davey Segal are joined by Frontstretch‘s Mike Neff to discuss the amount of time it took for NASCAR to approve Kyle Larson‘s playoff waiver.

Contrary to the hosts, Neff believes Larson shouldn’t have gotten the waiver and explains why.

The quartet also take a look at the playoff bubble. Could there really be a postseason without Joey Logano and Kyle Busch?
