On this episode of Talking in Circles we breakdown the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway. Martin Truex Jr won his 3rd career race and Furniture Row Racing are in the Chase. Big win for them and Truex.
We also talk about the infamous "Gordon and Gustafson spat," from Pocono and discuss whether or not that is something that should be taken seriously.
Michael Waltrip Racing announced a crew chief change this morning, flipping Brian Pattie and Billy Scott. Scott moves to the No. 15 car with Clint Bowyer and Pattie moves to the No. 55 Toyota with David Ragan. We discuss what these changes mean for the organization and whether or not the team made the right move.
Also the No. 48 team failed inspection twice during pre race inspection Sunday at Pocono. Should they recieve a stiffer penalty even though Knaus wasn't on probation?
Greg Biffle had a little mixup with NASCAR during qualifying. Biffle crossed the line on tv with about a second to go and NASCAR claimed that wasn't the case because according to their timing Biffle was too late. He ended up 22nd which would have transfered him into the round but NASCAR said he was too late. How can something like that happen in a major professional sport? Also Denny Hamlin's spin in the last round of qualifying kept teams off the board and Hamlin ended up 7th. Is that fair and could this create an issue later on down the road?
Also Kyle Busch is back behind the wheel of an Xfinity Series car this weekend as he drives the No. 54 Toyota for the 1st time since his crash at Daytona in February. How will he do? Should he be here? We'll talk about that as well.
Michigan Preview- Cup, XFINITY this week at Michigan, trucks are at Gateway. We'll preview each race for this weekend.

Cup- Slugger Labbe new crew chief for Austin Dillon. Replaces Gil Martin. Dillon is 23rd in the points with just 1 top 10 finish. Has 2 wins in XFINITY in 11 starts this season. Thoughts?
Future crew chief changes? Chad Johnston, Jay Guy, Bob Osborne.
XFINITY- Erik Jones wins, nice weekend for the 19 year old driver. swept both the truck race at Iowa and the XFINITY Series race at Chicagoland. Jones is showing he is a top young driver in the sport right now.
Ryan Blaney finished 2nd. He was the fastest car there. Went from the rear of the field after crashing in happy hour and finished runner-up
Chris Buescher manages a decent finish. 5th spot, stayed out on a caution when NASCAR opened/closed pit road. Big benefit for him. Got track position, never gave it up.
Buescher now leads Ty Dillon by 29 points. Dillon finished 9th. Gotta do better in an X-Only race.
Lap 151- Dylan Lupton brings out caution and NASCAR race control calls Pit Road Open. The problem is the flag man either didn’t hear it or had a major brain fart and failed to make the light green coming down pit road. What happened was drivers went down pit road with the red light resulting in a penalty for those drivers. Craziness and sad we even had to deal with it.
Next Xfinity Series race- Daytona, after off weekend.
Trucks- Erik Jones wins as I mentioned before.
Brandon Jones finished in the 2nd, Reddick 3rd, Crafton 4th and Christopher Bell 5th.
Landon Cassill misses X race- good move?
Jamie Dick’s team closes down. Viva Motorsports- sign of things to come?
Historians and archaeologist have confirmed that the first people in the Americas were black. Does this mean the indigenous Americans are black? Yes. Although this information has been kept from us, our true identity is starting to unfold. For years we’ve been told that we arrived to the Americas by slave ship, when in fact most of us were already here. Is it possible that the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade is a fictitious story used to trick indigenous black people out of their homelands and history?“…Omission, not distortion, is the far more serious culprit in hiding the story of the black Indians of America.” Williams Lorenz Katz, Black Indians.Many black people who trace their heritage will not find any African slavery in their family. It’s also not a coincidence that many of us blacks have been told by an elder in our family that, “We have Indian in our blood.” There were no ‘red Indians’ until the colonizers began mixing with the indigenous blacks. Below is a short list of black native tribes:
Queen Chief Warhorse (Elwin Green Gillum) is chief of the Chata tribe. She resides in New Orleans and is very vocal about the injustices the indigenous (black) Americans receive from the government. In a television broadcast, Chief Warhorse said:
“The first thing you have to do is go through being classified as crazy. The United States has fixed it so if anything is not by their rule, it’s crazy…”
