SORT BY Relevancy
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles we'll talk about today's race at Texas Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson, the second non-chaser to win this round, wins his 70th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of his career. Jimmie seemed to have the best car of the day, and after a wild finish, and a bunch of crazy restarts, Jimmie goes on to win it.
This race had some major implications for the race in Phoenix. Jeff Gordon, who was leading before the second-to-last restart fell from the points lead, to just one point to the good in the chase hunt. Brad Keselowski struggled all day long, and ended up finishing third after running aggessively on the same restart, winded up finishing third.
Carl Edwards was terrible all day long, but rallied to ninth at the end of the race, and now is in the running of advancing. For the first time in this chase, all of the drivers in the chase are in the hunt in the final race of the round.
Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon had an altercation after the race that resulted in a pit road brawl. We'll discuss this issue, and we will see if there are penalties handed down on Tuesday.
Also, we'll talk about how there were more people in my living room watching The Walking Dead tonight, than there was watching NASCAR Racing at Texas Motor Speedway today... Not really, but you get my point.
Plus, a big name in the NASCAR Nationwide Series is on the move... We'll talk about the Elliott Sadler move to Roush Fenway Racing.

On tonight's show, we talk about the Geico 500 today at Talladega SuperSpeedway. Brad Keselowski wins, and moves on in the chase. Dale Earnhardt, Jr, Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne all get eliminated after the race ended.
We'll discuss the race, our attaboys, and also break down the season and the days for the drivers who got eliminated from the chase, and also the ones who will move on in the chase as well, as we head to the Eliminator Round, with Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix.
Ryan Newman's number 31 car fails post race inspection after today's race. It's believed to be a 15 point penalty, which we won't know until Tuesday. We will see if this point penalty is signifcant enough to effect Newman's chase hopes.
Richard Petty Motorsports is moving their race shop. The team is currently housed across the street from Roush Fenway Racing, and now will be moving to a facility that is closer to Team Penske, not Roush Fenway Racing. Rumors have the team aligning with Penske. We'll talk about the significance of this move as well.
Dominic Aragon, from TheRacingExperts.com will join the show, and give his opinion as well on these topics.
Packed show tonight, and we hope that you enjoy it.
On tonight's episode we reivew the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 @ Phoenix International Raceway.
Kevin Harvick wins the race, and moves on to the Championship Round at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Joey Logano finished 6th and Denny Hamlin finished 5th, and both drivers were able to also advance to the next round. Ryan Newman had to piledrive his way around Kyle Larson and was able to finish 11th, which was one point good enough to get him in over Jeff Gordon.
Getting eliminated after this round were Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski. Keselowski and Gordon were solid favorites to move on, but each had their own reasons of why they didn't move on. Clayton Caldwell also has his own reason on why Jeff Gordon wasn't able to advance into the chase.
DEBRIS CAUTIONS!!!! NASCAR today hurt the legitimacy of their champion today by throwing a significant amount of bogus debris cautions to spice up competition. Brandon gets a little heated in talking about that.
Also Ryan Newman muscled his way around Kyle Larson, and some ppl took issue. Dirty driving, or aggressive driving, and what may have happened in that incident that no one has talked about yet.
And Chase Elliott clinches the 2014 and final NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship. The youngest person ever to hold that title at the age of 18. We'll discuss what's next for the young Elliott.
The pressure to win the championship or just to make it into the next round, is beyond the boiling point. It has exploded, as was seen at Texas on Sunday. Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks will divulge into the fight, which it really was, between Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski, as well as the aftermath. Is this good for NASCAR, or has someone stepped over the line?
Not ony that, but once again, a non-Chaser has won, making Phoenix a major race for the Eliminator Round drivers, and that simply increases the pressure beyond anything imaginable.
Plus, the Nationwide Series could crown a champion come next weekend, a rookie champion no less, while the Truck Series still has a close title hunt going on. This season is coming down to the wire, and champions weill soon be crowned. Tune in at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT to hear all this and more.
On the show, I will chat with NASCAR's Parker Kligerman about his racing and broadcasting careers.
Also, we will hear from Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, and Denny Hamlin about their feelings on Pheonix...
We will also have a NASCAR roundtable - and we have A LOT to talk about! Is Brad K at fault? Are the penalties fair? Should there even have been penalties? What about this weekend's action at Pheonix? Will there be more action OFF the track?
Also, don't forget Kate's Song of the Week, and the segment Things that make ya go hmmm.....
See you 7-8pmEST for the fastest show on the radio!
Talladega eliminated another four drivers, but Martinsville started the actual Eliminator Round. The Chase is over halfway done, and only eight drivers remain in the hunt for a championship. Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks are ready to look back at the end of one round, and the beginning of another.
The end of the Contender Round saw Hendrick Motorsports end up losing the most. After getting all four drivers in the Chase, only one remains. With Hendrick only having one driver able to go for the title, compared to Gibbs with two and Penske with two, are Gordon's chances slim, or is it motivation. Plus, Brad Keselowski overcame adversity to make it into the Eliminator Eight, only to see unfortunate troubles this past Sunday. Keselowski isn't out of the hunt, but battling back now is more difficult now that only two races remain before the title round.
With all the Chase talk, Hendrick did have the bright spot on Sunday when Dale Earnhardt Jr. locked in his fourth win of the year, the most in one season since 2004. It was a win possibly meaning more than his second Daytona 500, and made a weekend where heartache was replaced by rejoice and victory.
This and so much more will be discussed beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT.
On tonight's episode, we first tackle the penalties to the crew members, handed down by NASCAR on Tuesday. No drivers were penalized, but crew chiefs for the 24 and 5 teams were. However, Paul Wolfe, cc for the 2 team and Brad Keselowski were not penalized at all. And neither was Kevin Harvick. We'll discuss whether or not, NASCAR got it right, and why they may have ruled the way they did.
Also, some big changes are taking place at Roush Fenway Racing in prominant positions at the team. Mark McArdle, formally of Richard Childress Racing and Furniture Row Racing will join the team. He will join the team as the engineering director. Also, Kevin Kidd will come over from Joe Gibbs Racing and join the organization as Sprint Cup Series team manager and will report to Robbie Reiser. We'll discuss these changes at the organization and how this may affect this team moving forward.
Also, we've got this week in NASCAR history, which takes us back to November 5, 1978 in the Dixie 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway where a scoring controversy, changed the winner while the driver was on his way home from the race...
Finally our picks to win this weekend in Phoenix and what we think the racing will be like.
And also, the racing patriarch of the Sauter family has passed away.
Uncle Mark & Brandon break down a wild ending to NASCAR's Chase Race #5 at Charlotte Motor Speedway which ended with Harvick taking the checkered but evryone wanting a piece of Brad Keselowski!
Could the new Chase format be any better JUST before the crap-shoot of Talladega coming up next and the next round of cuts???!
The Frat House Sports gang will be breaking it down . . . looking at the new "bubble" drivers -- the ramifications of the events at Charlotte -- and WOW could Keselowski actually be OUT???
It's EVERYTHING in Motor Sports as we know it right now as we enter the final weeks of the season . . . and it's getting serious and very, very hot!
You want to be listening to THIS one and calling in at 347 - 826 - 9964!
The Chase is here...the Chase has begun. It will take four rounds, 10 races, and one final finish to determine this year's champion. If the start is any indication, this year's battle to take home the Sprint Cup championship is going to be down to the wire.
Dustin Parks and Patti Rodisch are here to give you the low-down on the first Chase race from Chicagoland, and who has the advantage coming out of the first race in the Challenger Round. Brad Keselowski entered the Chase in the lead with four victories, and at the end of Chicagoland, he had five, punching his ticket into the Contender Round. While other Chase drivers had their strong runs, is Keselowski for sure the one to beat?
Not only that, but a couple non-Chase drivers showed a lot of strength, including one very impressive rookie. Will a non-Chase driver take some thunder away?
Plus, Dave Radzierez, the driver of the XDP diesel monster truck, joins the show to preview the final 4-Wheel Jamboree of the season at Indianapolis, Indiana.
All this and more beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT.
Uncle Mark & Brandon have set up in the Frat House Sports garage to chat up a bit of end-of-season NASCAR noise, nonsense and shenanigans . . . AND they're taking your calls as well!
ANOTHER non-Chaser won at last week's Chase Race #8 at Texas Motor Speedway and the second Hendrick Motorsports driver in-a-row, Jimmie Johnson. Boy, do those guys love playing spoiler! With just one race left before the "Final Four" cut, who was the biggest loser? Well, Brad Keselowski certainly had the biggest bruises following the Keselowski-Gordon-Harvick brawl!
But, NOW here comes ANOTHER "cut day" with Race #9 at Phoenix International Raceway and, AGAIN, the conversation revolves around those that can advance yet have not won or are perceived heavy underdogs -- guys like Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin . . . oh, they've been saying it for weeks . . . but, is THIS the one where 'BK" meets the wall???
PLUS . . . the feel good story of the week in NASCAR comes from an 18-year-old rookie Champion over in the Nationwide Series, Chase Elliott!
They've got the coffee. You bring the donuts and bring enough for the guys parked right now over in the "Frat House Sports Garage" . . . oh, and be sure to give them a call at 347 - 826 - 9964!
