Nov 1 2022 • 2 hrs 30 mins

Door Bumper Clear is back from a wild weekend at Martinsville Speedway to recap the Round of 8 cutoff race. Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors, and Freddie Kraft are joined by motorsports writer for The Athletic and recurring guest, Jeff Gluck. The table starts by discussing T.J. and Brad Keselowski being disqualified, Gluck’s trip to the COTA F1 race, and Big Al’s shenanigans. Spot On, Spot Off starts with Chase Briscoe’s decision to stay out during the final caution and inherit the lead in Sunday’s Cup race. The guys talk about why other drivers below the cutoff line did not attempt the same move and how he almost pulled it off. Ross Chastain’s Hail Mary move ridding the wall gained him enough positions to make the Championship 4. They explain how shocked they were to see him make the move, debate whether he prepared for it, and discuss if NASCAR should rewrite the rules to prevent it. Denny Hamlin was eliminated from title contention by Chastain after a season of run-ins. Will Denny interfere with Ross’s championship hopes and get his revenge? Hear what the table has to say. Ty Gibbs punted teammate Brandon Jones into Turn 1 to win the Xfinity Series race on Saturday. The guys break down why he went too far and if Brandon Jones will retaliate in the championship race. Plus, hear their reaction to the “Thank You Grandpa” chants and Gibbs comparing himself to Jesus. Austin Hill punched Myatt Snider after the Xfinity Series race at Martinsville. Hear about what went down and why nobody will be messing with Austin Hill anytime soon. NASCAR released crash test footage of the proposed rear changes to the Next Gen car. Gluck explains why the changes won’t make the car safer than the Gen 6 car and they discuss Tyler Reddick retiring from the race early due to a potential concussion. Plus, hear from OrthoCarolina physical therapist Ken Breath about working with concussions in motorsports and how NASCAR is testing for them. In Reaction Theatre, fans call in about Ty Gibbs racing against three JR Motorsports cars and comparing himself to Jesus, Ross Chastain’s last-lap move, and two new songs. Finally, everyone gives their championship picks for all three series and discusses a potential tiebreaker for DBC picks.   Thank you to our presenting sponsor Offerpad and partners Xfinity and RacingUSA.com for making this show possible.
