In just under six minutes, we bring you some of the best elements of Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway — the end of the first half of the 26-race NASCAR Cup regular season — with our popular “Scan All” series.
We start out this week’s edition on NASCAR America with some of the difficulties — and frustrated responses — of Dale Earnhardt Jr. He tried everything but struggled for much of the 406-lap race (scheduled for 400 laps, plus six additional laps of overtime).
Then we revisited the embarrassing loss of a left rear wheel on Kyle Busch‘s car after the tire was not attached properly with lug nuts.
Among the most notable — and humorous — exchanges on team radios was that of Clint Bowyer.
First, Bowyer missed a trip to pit road. He responded by telling his crew chief, “Were we supposed to pit there? I was daydreaming. Spotter must have been signing autographs.”
Then, when oil appeared under Bowyer’s car during a pit stop, it ultimately ended his day with a blow engine.
To which Clint deadpanned, “We run like Jack the Bear … blowed up!”
Listen to the best sounds from drivers and crews as Jimmie Johnson fought his way into victory lane at Dover.
