EP 2129: Nate Ryan, Alex Andrejev. Brett McMillan hosts.
July 14, 2021
It was a Busch bash in Atlanta, who’s ready for a lobsterfest in Loudon? Brett McMillan is joined by NBC’s Nate Ryan and Alex Andrejev of the Charlotte Observer to discuss the heated comments from drivers about the major change to Atlanta Motor Speedway. The driver’s council is no more, but Nate explains why Denny Hamlin believes it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. Plus, as some older drivers like Kevin Harvick step down from leadership roles in the garage, who among the next crop of talent will lead the sport into the 2020s? And did NASCAR find the secret to Hendrick’s success?
