Keep yer tires up and yer tabs open

This week we schmak the tire-gate of the Fontana race, the infection-gate of the Hamlin eyeball (including some of the popular Trackschmak Theatre), the camber-gate from Fox Broadcasting’s “Department of Misinformation” (i.e. Waltrip), the Drive for Diversity program, Coach’s absolutely terrible fantasy roster, and more…!

Picks for next week at Martinsville:

Coach: Brad Keselowski
Rob: Jamie McMurray

NOTE: we made an agreement to not pick Jimmie Johnson or Jeff Gordon because those two essentially own the racing at Martinsville, and we thought it’d be more fun to pick someone who fits the criteria of being not-Jimmie and not-Jeff.

Fox Sports One Racing – “The Ocho”

What happens when a great race goes on a channel that very few people can see? Anger. Anger is what happens.

We schmak the race, the networks, the lack of online viewing options, a quick Danica update, and more! Lots more!

Also, a preview of the Fontana race and our picks:

Coach: Carl Edwards (why?)
Rob: Jeff Gordon

Cooling Down Qualifying

This week we talk changes to qualifying, news of the week, some stuff about Danica, and preview our fantasy picks for Bristol.

Picks:

Rob: Brad Keselowski (again)
Coach: Brian Vickers

Desert Rage

Lots of rage this week, and none of it is directly related to the race.

Topics include Mark Garrow’s new(ish?) podcast, qualifying format issues, NASCAR’s implicit support of Arizona’s proposed pro-discrimination law, and a whole host of other topics and rages.

Picks for next week:

Coach: Jimmie Johnson
Rob: Brad Keselowski
