The usual suspects of Joey Barnes (Tribute Racing), Josh Farmer (Motorsport Monday), and Christopher DeHarde (Motorsport.com) are joined by Matt Weaver of Popular Speed as they gear up for Speedweeks in Daytona. Who are the favorites with the Saturday night Sprint Unlimited? Who do they see as a threat for the Daytona 500 pole on Sunday?
With all the focus on NASCAR, the gang will shift gears to discuss the latest from IndyCar. With the race in Brazil cancelled and testing at NOLA Motorsports Park, they give you the latest as we prepare to go In the Gravel Trap.
Saturday night was a night of fun antics when it came to the race sponsor, but the action on the track was as intense as NASCAR has expected. Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks will look back on the two nights that Kansas hosted action.
The Truck race itself was drama filled, with trucks running out of fuel with laps winding down, and the dominant truck left to wonder what may have been. At the end of it all, Matt Crafton continued the defense of his two-consecutive championships with another win on the year, and now more momentum heading into Charlotte.
Then came the late night on Saturday that saw references to sponges, pineapples and Krabby Patties. But in the end, it was Jimmie Johnson taking home another Kansas win, and his third on the season, which now puts him in the Chase lead heading into NASCAR's All-Star Week.
That will be the final topic as these two look to the Sprint All-Star Race, a five-segment sprint that will give someone a million-dollar payout. Tune in at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT to listen in.

There is one episode a year that is not focusing on the recent past or what can come in the future. This episode of Lugnuts and Horsepower is all about history, because it's all about the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Bill Elliott, Fred Lorenzen, Wendell Scott, Joe Weatherly, and Rex White all took their rightful spot in immortality this past week, signifying their place in NASCAR, and what they meant to the sport.
Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks will go through the list and talk in depth about how each impacted the sport, both on the track and beyond it.
They will also look ahead at potential new Hall of Fame inductees later this year, and what stars of today could be going in sooner rather than later.
It's a 6:30 p.m. start time for the east coast, with 5:30 p.m. in the central zone.

The front row is set, but many drivers are unhappy. With the Budweiser Duels looming to set the entire field for the Daytona 500, Dustin Parks and Patti Rodisch are ready to look back at the first weekend of Speedweeks in Daytona, while looking ahead to four consecutive days of on-track action.
Qualifying may have set the front row, but drivers were not happy with the new group format. Did it work, or did it just create more chaos? Matt Kenseth got his first victory in over a season, even though it was a non-points race, it gives him a lot of momentum heading into the big race. Is he even more of a favorite now?
These questions will get answered, along with a look ahead to the first races of the year for the Camping World Truck Series and the debut race in the newly re-named Xfinity Series.
