0 Comments

The wait is over.

With NASCAR America’s return to the airwaves comes the first edition of fan favorite segment, “Scan All.”

The feature brings you the highlights of team scanner traffic during the course of every Cup Series race.

The first “Scan All” of 2018 documents Kevin Harvick‘s win Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, his first at the track in 17 years.

Here are some highlights.

  • “That’s a really good penalty when you come to a place like this, huh?” – Kyle Larson‘s spotter, Derek Kneeland, on Martin Truex Jr’s rapid rise through the field early in the race. Truex started 35th after he failed pre-qualifying inspection. He started the race on fresh tires while everyone else started on tires that had been used in qualifying.
  • “I think the 4 car (Harvick) is getting out of the gas really early” – Earl Barban, Jimmie Johnson‘s spotter

“Where are we getting out of the gas?” – Chad Knaus, Johnson’s crew chief.

“Uh, further than that.”

  • “That 4 car is stupid fast” – Truex on Harvick’s dominant performance late in the race.

“Hallelujah, what a relief,” Harvick said after taking the checkered flag. “I’ve been waiting 17 years to do what I’m getting ready to do.”

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver held three fingers outside his window, in honor of Dale Earnhardt.
