In this week’s edition of the Frontstretch Podcast, Dustin Albino and Mike Neff discuss a gigantic weekend of racing between NASCAR and IndyCar at Dover International Speedway and in the Indianapolis 500.
Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick were victorious again, sweeping the weekend. Could both of these drivers win 10 races this season? Surely, both are all-but locked into the championship race at Phoenix Raceway.
Meanwhile, the regular-season finale is this weekend at Daytona International Speedway; and there’s a tight points battle. Matt DiBenedetto heads into the weekend nine points above the cutline, with William Byron plus four. Jimmie Johnson enters on the outside, looking in, but it’s Daytona, where anything can happen. Albino and Neff attempt to preview the race, knowing the final stage is going to be complete chaos.
Justin Allgaier and Chase Briscoe won the two NASCAR Xfinity Series races in dominating fashion. In Indy, Takuma Sato won his second Indy 500, this one under caution. Albino and Neff sound off on the Greatest Spectacle in Racing ending under caution and series officials not throwing the red flag.
Finally, Allgaier joins the show to discuss his Dover win, why he considered not racing any longer, playoff outlook and much more.
