With no tropical storm bearing down, Katie B. and Brandon Reed, editor of the Around the Track page and race historian, were able to get in studio on time and chat about Martin Truex Jr.'s big win at Chicagoland and Dawsonville-native Chase Elliott's near-miss at a first series win.
Beginning of the show: What in the world is Tales of the Turtles 400? Moreover, what does it say about Katie B. that she thought Truex being covered in slime was not out of the ordinary?
3-minute mark: Truex made a statement at Chicagoland, and it's that his team is the standard setter and others will need to rise to their level.
8-minute mark: Pole-sitter Kyle Busch finished 15th and was none too thrilled: was karma at play?
12-minute mark: What do the name of Kyle Busch's paint scheme from Chicagoland (Skittles Sweet Heat) and Brandon have in common?
14-minute mark: Chase Elliott was thwarted down the stretch by Truex, but had a great performance in the Tale of the Turtles 400 nonetheless: is Elliott set up for a win in the playoffs?
16-minute mark: What do the drivers outside the bubble have to do to get back on track, especially the two drivers who haven't solidified rides for next year?
20-minute mark: An impressive win at Hartwell over the weekend by Jennifer Everett; Brandon weighs in.
End of show: Remembering Ted Christopher, killed in a plane crash Saturday en route to a race in New York
