The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs are underway after race weekend at Darlington Raceway and TJ Majors, Freddie Kraft and championship contender Tyler Reddick react to it all. Reddick discusses his third-place effort in the Southern 500 and how the last restart unfolded when he had a shot at victory. Rain again played a factor in both races and the guys share the differences in how each caution for precipitation was handled. Freddie's Truck Series driver Derek Kraus turned 21 last week and Freddie recaps their night on the town. Find out why Kraus is a leading candidate for 'what an idiot.' TJ reunited with Dale Jr. to spot his late model race at North Wilkesboro last week. Hear how the race went and the crew's impressions of the facility. Plus, hear what crazy rumors might be flying around about the track's future. To start Spot On, Spot Off, the gang reacts to the Xfinity Series finish at Darlington between Kyle Larson and Sheldon Creed. They share their thoughts on the battle, why each was racing so hard, and what they could have done differently to prevent Noah Gragson's last lap pass to victory. Kevin Harvick's car caught on fire late in Sunday's race and he shared fiery comments about the Next Gen car after the incident. Hear what he said about the safety and parts on the car, and whether the guys agree. Plus, they offer thoughts on fixing the fire problem in the new cars. Denny Hamlin nearly caught Erik Jones to battle for the victory at Darlington but didn't try any video game-type moves to win the race. Find out what the crew thought about that decision and hear what Reddick says is the only way to move someone in the Next Gen car. Harvick and Kyle Busch were very outspoken about the Next Gen car's safety after drivers suffered hard hits at Daytona. The gang reacts to the driver comments and NASCAR saying drivers are wrecking at different angles and going faster than ever before, causing the stiffer impacts. Busch admitted last week that his persona may have made it harder to attract a new sponsor. The guys discuss the sports sponsorship climate and ponder what this means for Busch's next move, and how soon until the world may know where he's headed next.
