NASCAR America: Scan All from Chicagoland Speedway

Leave a comment

It was very hot Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway and there were fireworks on the track and on team radios.

The Overton’s 400 will be remembered for the last-lap battle between Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson.

See how the race and that battle played out via the best radio traffic in the latest Scan All.

Here are some of the highlights.

— “What a (expletive) nightmare” – Clint Bowyer after his series of visits to pit road for speeding penalties in Stage 1.

— “I don’t really care. It’s almost like we’re designing these cars to see how slow we can run.” – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. venting frustration to crew chief Brian Pattie.

— “Holy (expletive), he put him in the wall. We’re still going, right?” – Bowyer’s spotter, Brett Griffin, after Larson made contact with Busch exiting Turn 2 on the last lap.

— “That’s why you never give up guys, never give up.” – Busch’s crew chief, Adam Stevens, after Busch took the checkered flag and the win.

NASCAR America Scan All: ‘Basically, the 78 faked us out’

Leave a comment

When Martin Truex Jr. crew chief Cole Pearn faked out Kevin Harvick crew chief Rodney Childers on an aborted pit stop during stage three of the Toyota/SaveMart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, the topic was on everyone’s lips.

Including the driver and crew chief of the No. 4.

“I kind of let everyone down,” Childers said while Truex headed for Victory Lane.

“It’s all good man. All good,” Harvick replied. “Give her hell, man. That’s all that matters. Stuff happens.”

Other highlights from Scan All include:

  • “Damnit; blew it up. That’s on me guys.” – AJ Allmendinger
  • “I just don’t understand how I can try and take care of my tires and still be the worst car on long runs here.” – Kyle Larson
  • “Yeah, that makes two of us.” – Chad Johnston, Larson’s crew chief
  • “I have a power steering problem. The [expletive] broke. Oh no, it’s locking up.” – Ryan Blaney
  • “What else can we do, besides ride it out. If we go behind the wall, you’re screwed either way.” Jeremy Bullins, Blaney’s crew chief
  • “Good car. Driver needs to step up to it. I’ll be better at Watkins Glen” – Bubba Wallace
  • “Stay out Martin, stay out, stay out. Go another nine more Martin” – Cole Pearn
  • “Basically, the 78 faked us out. They decided to run seven or eight more laps. Kind of screwed us here a little bit, but we’ll make the best of it.” – Rodney Childers

NASCAR America Scan All: Parker Kligerman makes the most of opportunities

Leave a comment

In a special edition of Scan All, Parker Kligerman takes the fan through a guided tour of his 2018 season.

“(I am) hoping to give you guys a better idea of what a small team like mine goes through on a weekly basis,” Kligerman said. “We focus on quality over quantity.”

While NASCAR America’s Kligerman has not had many chances to race this year, he has made the most of those opportunities. An accident at Daytona International Speedway in the Camping World Truck Series season opener kept him from contending for a good finish, but he almost cracked the top 10 at Atlanta Motor Speedway the following week – finishing 11th in the 32-truck field.

“Our goal: we show up, we feel like it’s a race we can win.”

“You’re doing a great job man” spotter Earl Barban told him during the opening laps at Dover International Speedway as Kligerman marched toward the lead. “Move that corner back a little bit, your drive off is a lot better than most.”

The advice was productive. Kligerman went on to lead 11 laps in the Jegs 200. He was still running with the leaders in second when the No. 75 broke an oil cooler and retired on lap 86.

He went to Charlotte Motor Speedway two races later and finished seventh – his first and so far only top 10 in Trucks this year.

Strong runs in the Truck series opened up another opportunity to race the Coke 600 in the Gaunt Brothers’ No. 96.

Battling brake issues and after a trip into the wall, he brought the car home 27th in his first Cup series race since 2014.

“It wasn’t pretty, but we made it to the end,” Kligerman said over the radio after the race.

Kligerman earned a second Cup race in the No. 96 this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

NASCAR America: Scan All from the Coca-Cola 600

Leave a comment

“At least we can say we beat Harvick.”

That’s what Austin Dillon said over his radio after Kevin Harvick was eliminated from Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 in a wreck, his first DNF in the race.

Dillon had been involved in his own incident early in the race, resulting in a long visit to the garage.

That’s just one highlight of the best team radio communication during the 600-mile race, which saw some teams experience strange interference – or hacking – on their radio channels.

Here are other highlights.

  • “I have no idea who that was. Somebody was screaming.” – Matt McCall, Jamie McMurray‘s crew chief, in response to one case of radio interference.
  • “Be sure to thank the 11 for being such a great guy.” – Jimmie Johnson after contact with Denny Hamlin caused him to spin on Lap 120.
  • “He had a damn light show there.” – Bubba Wallace after Ryan Blaney‘s No. 12 Ford erupted in flames.
  • “Ever since I was kid I dreamt of this!” – Kyle Busch after claiming his first Cup points win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
