A decision to stay out during Saturday night’s race placed the slower car of Spencer Boyd right in the middle of the playoff mix.

Only three races remain in the NASCAR season. Spotters T.J. Majors and Brett Griffin are in the Bojangles Studio to breakdown the weekend of action from Texas Motor Speedway. Hear the guys react to the (too?) long 500-mile afternoon in the Lone Star State, how absent Freddie Kraft’s driver Bubba Wallace contributed to the attrition of the race and where a strong day leads Brad Keselowski and TJ in the playoff standings.

Does the gang agree with even lower horsepower next year? Their responses may surprise you. NASCAR President Steve Phelps gave strong praise for the Next Gen car last week, saying it will cure-all that currently ails NASCAR.

The pre-race drivers meeting is likely an event of the past moving into 2022 and the table believes that is not a good decision.

Then as Elliott closed back in on Harvick, Harvick made a mistake that eliminated him from the playoffs. Hear the guys talk about how his plan completely backfired. After the first incident, the No. 9 team suffered major rear end damage. The bumper cover then hung off the car for numerous laps before flying off to bring out a debris caution. Why didn’t Elliott get the black flag like NASCAR has done to drivers with loose bumper covers in the past?
