The 2022 NASCAR season is officially under way, and things were heating up in Southern California for the Wise Power 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana! This week on the Bump N' Run Podcast veteran radio host Michael D. White, Daytona Ron, and Matt "The Stat Man" Reilly talk about the latest news including the postponement of the short track reconfiguration of Auto Club Speedway.
It was an exciting day in Fontana for the Wise Power 400. Tyler Reddick and Erik Jones put on a show for the first two stages, swapping for the lead until tire issues and William Byron took out Tyler Reddick.
In the end Young Money Kyle Larson would bring home the victory, trophy, and the check! It's a good think too because this week we're heading to Vegas!
Austin Dillon had a rough start but pulled things together for a great run at the end for a 2 nd place finish.
Erik Jones with a 3rd place finish, swapped the lead with Reddick several times, just a great battle all day
Daniel Suarez didn’t have the best car yesterday, but he put himself into position at the end for a 4th
Joey Logano coming from the back for a 5th place finish
Aric Almirloa had a solid day with a 6th place finish
Kevin Harvick had a rough weekend, first lap of practice he cracked up the car, they got it fixed and he
massaged his way up to a well-deserved 7th place finish.
Kurt Busch started the race in the rear and a lap down from a pass through penalty for failing inspection
3 times and still put up an 8th place finish. He passed 133 cars yesterday.
Tyler Reddick led 90 of 200 laps with a numb left leg, an eventual cut tire and contact with William
Byron had him finish a lap down. That pit crew was on fire yesterday, I don’t think they lost a race off pit
road until the 8 cut a tire.
Plus we give our Race Grade, Checkers&Wreckers, and out open debate Pick a Lane segments. What can NASCAR do about the tire problem? And should we make Fontana a short track?
Plus our betting picks for this week's Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas!
All that and more on this week's Bump N' Run Podcast!
