It’s a big episode as Brett Griffin, T.J. Majors and Freddie Kraft return from Kentucky Speedway to break down the weekend of racing and talk to Super Bowl champion and new NASCAR fan Bernard Pollard. First, the spotting trio discusses Noah Gragson’s right hook on Harrison Burton, Brad Keselowski turning Jimmie Johnson on a late restart and how Cole Custer triumphed in a wild finish. Plus, they explain why Kentucky put on a terrible race, how the traction compound impacted the competition and NASCAR’s inconsistent caution calls. Then, Pollard joins the show and discusses how he became a NASCAR fan, what he has learned so far and how racing can compare to football. Plus, the crew asks him if he’s ready to try a pit stop and take a ride along in a stock car. We also get his reaction to the racing he has witnessed so far, hear stories from his college and professional football playing days and learn more about his life after the NFL. Lastly, the All-Star Race will take place on Wednesday night at Bristol and the guys preview it. They debate whether or not Chase Elliott’s move from June would be legal now with a million dollars on the line, the underglow lights and the new number placement on the cars.
