NASCAR made its second annual visit to Circuit of the Americas in the Lone Star State on Sunday (March 27) for the EchoPark Automotive Texas Grand Prix, where Ross Chastain claimed his and Trackhouse Racing Team’s maiden NASCAR Cup Series victory after holding off AJ Allmendinger and Alex Bowman on the final lap.
However, the race dragged on for some, with extended caution laps ticking time and laps off the clock. Can NASCAR remedy this issue with local yellows or other changes? How about Chastain’s recent surge, finishing in the top three week after week as Trackhouse got closer and closer to its first win? Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss these topics and more.
