Frontstretch Podcast: Single-File Racing in Clash, Previewing Daytona 500 & Season

In the first edition of the Frontstretch Podcast in 2019, Dustin Albino and  Mike Neff discuss a rather boring Advance Auto Parts Clash, one where drivers ran single-file and up against the wall for much of the event.

Neff sounds off on why he believes Jimmie Johnson caused the crash with Paul Menard that involved 16 others, noting the No. 48 car has been involved in an accident during the last eight Clashes.

As for Daytona 500 qualifying, the duo discusses who they thought performed well. They specifically mention Hendrick Motorsports’ dominance, as William Byron and Alex Bowman will start from the front row, and who underachieved — most notably, Chip Ganassi Racing (though not surprising on superspeedways).

Finally, the gang debates as to why Team Penske is the team to beat in the Great American Race and mentions some darkhorses to be on the lookout for. Quickly, we preview the new aerodynamic package and who we think will adapt the quickest, while also picking our champions (hint, we’re going way out on a limb… not).
