On the special Sunday Morning edition of Talking in Circles, we talk about the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. Joey Logano wins his 6th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, and third of the season, and has made himself a contender in this Championship race. It's the first time ever, that Ford Motor Company has swept the weekend in Bristol.
Joey won the race on the final restart passing Matt Kenseth on older tires, but the new rubber paid off for Logano and he was able to work his way around the 20 and go to victory lane.
Denny Hamlin was leading the race on lap 156, before contact with second place running Kevin Harvick sent Hamlin's car into the inside retaining wall, ending his day, and afterwards Hamlin threw his HANS device at Harvick. We'll talk about that move in perticular and why it was okay, and also why Harvick was running so hard, so early.
Kyle Busch had a tough night in Bristol. Kyle got caught up in an early wreck, and for the past 5 weeks, has had nothing but bad luck, with good race cars. This lead crew chief Dave Rogers to tell Kyle to "park you whiney little ass, and get on the bus." Team owner, Joe Gibbs has downplayed the comments and seems to think that it's no big deal.
Also, Greg Biffle has a new sponsor, and sticking with Roush, is Jimmy Fennig going to step down?
All of that on Talking in Circles. Enjoy the show everyone!

It has been a long couple weeks for NASCAR, as both the good and bad have occurred in the sport, and it all revolved around one man.
Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks will look back at the Bristol weekend, a race that honored Steve Byrnes and his battle against cancer, but then will turn to the Richmond weekend, the first weekend following the tragic passing of Byrnes on April 21. These two will look back at his greatest moments in the sport as a broadcaster, and how much he loved the sport. Byrnes is a fixture in the garage, and not having him around doing interviews or pit cycles will feel very different. But, as his final tweet pointed out before his passing, he "Went The Distance."
Patti and Dustin will also review all the action at both races, and then look ahead to what looms...the monster that is Talladega. Tune in at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT for this very special episode.
With the racing season getting ready to begin at the Grundy County Speedway this Friday night, we welcome new race promotor Ron Snow to the show to talk about exciting changes for the upcoming and preview the 2015 season. We'll also be talking Bristol NASCAR weekend and a action packed season opener at the Rockford Speedway. Join Gary, Dan and Steve LIVE at 8PM.
It was a Texas Stampede as Jimmie Johnson once again took victory in the Lone Star State, locking down his spot in the Chase very early in the season. Dustin Parks and Patti Rodisch are ready to look back at the weekend in Texas, both at Johnson's second win of the season, his fifth at Texas, and also Erik Jones taking the checkered flag the previous night in the Xfinity Series.
These two will also look ahead to Bristol, a race that has been renamed for a media member that is loved by many, and fighting a disease that took him away from the sport he loves. The Food City 500 has been renamed "Food City 500 In Support of Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer" for a man who simply loves this sport, and hates being away from it. Come Sunday, NASCAR gives back to one of their own.
Tune in beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT for what should be a very entertaining, and possibly emotional, episode.
The usual suspects of Adam Tate (Tribute Racing), Joey Barnes (Tribute Racing), Christopher DeHarde (Motorsport.com), Josh Farmer, & Frank Santoroski (Drafting the Circuits) discuss a hectic weekend in racing after NASCAR had a wet weekend in Bristol and IndyCar hit one of its crown jewels, the 41st Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Where does Scott Dixon rank among the all-time greats? Is Kimi Raikkonen back and deserving of a contract extension with Scuderia Ferrari in F1? And is the 'new' Bristol better than the 'old' Bristol?
All this and more as we take you "In the Gravel Trap!"

It’s another rare Friday where the guys are forced to keep the Frat House Sports Garage open late – just too much work to do before tomorrow’s Saturday night NASCAR racing at Richmond International Raceway.
First though we're looking back over last Sunday’s “Bristol Marathon” which saw 11 cautions, four rain delays, and a G-W-C finish. Matt Kenseth picked up his first checkered since 2013 while the “Pesky Boys” were wrecking each other and Denny Hamlin, with sudden mysterious neck pain, was replaced with wunderkind Erik Jones. What to make of it all? The “guys in the garage” are chatting it up.
We’ve got rare Saturday night racing at Richmond and we’ll have our own Brandon on the ground track-side. While drivers like Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin have a history here, could we see Jeff Gordon or Tony Stewart get their first win of the season?
There’s drag racing going on this weekend at the Royal Purple Raceway, and Frat House Mike will be updating NHRA in his report on activities in Houston.
Uncle Mark is going Over the Wall; Sidekick’s got his Fantasy picks; and the rest of the guys are jumping in with their Eat-My-Dust Picks!
As it’s Friday night, we’ve got the beer . . . if you’re stopping by, you bring the pizza . . . and your comments to the Frat House Sports Garage . . . by giving a call to 347 - 826 - 9964!
