Amazingly, the DBC crew survived Vegas and is back in studio to recap the first race of the Round of 8. Regan Smith jumps into the fire in replacement of Brett Griffin, who is still in Vegas, to chat with Freddie Kraft, TJ Majors and Casey Boat.

In Spot On Spot Off, Dale Jr says “you can’t just run well and advance” in the Round of 8, saying a flawless performance is required to advance into the Championship 4, Christopher Bell feels like he missed his best shot to make the Championship 4 and NASCAR penalizes multiple drivers on hanging back on the restart.
