Podcast includes each noteworthy storyline from Championship 4 As the season comes to a close at the championship weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway , the Dirty Air Podcast has a lot to talk about. Who will win the finale and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship? Chuck Bush, Jonathan Merryman and Matthew Dillner break down the story lines of the four drivers left competing for the title. • Log on to the iTunes Store and subscribe • Or watch the full replay on YouTube With many incredible storylines within the Championship 4, including Kevin Harvick defending his title, Martin Truex Jr . racing as the underdog and Kyle Busch 's legendary comeback. Perhaps the most buzzed about story, however, is Jeff Gordon as he attemps to put an exclamation point on a Hall of Fame career by hitting a walk off with a fifth title. Gordon made his debut in 1992 for the Hooters 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway , a race debated as one of the most dramatic championship-deciding races in the history of the sport. The Dirty Air trio examines the uncanny similarities between the '92 Atlanta finale and this year's NASCAR championship title bout at Homestead.
RELATED: Harvick on JGR: 'We're going to pound them' MORE: Full race results " Race recap " Final standings for 2015 After Kyle Busch hoisted his new 2015 Sprint Cup Series champion trophy over his head, Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin took to Twitter to remind last year's champ, Kevin Harvick , of his prediction for the 2015 Chase. Way to go @KyleBusch . Way to "pound em into the ground" #champs — Denny Hamlin (@dennyhamlin) November 23, 2015 For a refresher, Harvick's exact quote from Chase Media Day in September was: "I wouldn't consider us behind the Gibbs cars. I've raced against the Gibbs cars. I think we're going to pound them into the ground, that's what I think. Hopefully they can beat themselves."
John Hunter Nemechek and Cameron Hayley were each pleased with their top-three efforts Saturday at Martinsville Speedway . With each other? Not so much. As far as post-race confrontations go in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, the face-to-face meeting between the NASCAR Next products on pit road was fairly mild, short though not so sweet. Nemechek came away with a runner-up finish behind winner Matt Crafton , and Hayley enjoyed a career-best third place in the Kroger 200 , but there were indications that their late-race contact could have implications later in the season. "The racing got really rough out there. John Hunter's got it coming to him here later in Phoenix," Hayley said after emerging from his ThorSport Racing No. 13 Toyota. "There's no reason why he should just drive into someone that hard, but I guess it's short-track racing and just great run for us." Nemechek bulled past Hayley on a restart with two laps to go, nudging to the inside groove in Turn 3 just before the white flag unfurled. Nemechek said he received Hayley's warning loud and clear in their brief post-race talk, but indicated that watching a replay would help him understand the contact. "It's part of racing. It's good, hard racing and good, hard battling," said Nemechek, who added that he was being pushed from behind during the two-lap dash to the end. "Earlier in the race, he moved me, so he had one coming back to him." Aside from the abbreviated dust-up, there were plenty of shared positives. Hayley started second alongside pole-sitter Cole Custer , and Nemechek started third. Both spent the duration of the day in the top five, within sight of early leader Custer and late-race dominator Crafton. For Nemechek, it marked his fourth top-five finish in his last five races, including his breakthrough win in Chicagoland. For Hayley, his third straight top-10 in his rookie campaign kept him sixth in the series standings. "It just seemed like the one truck in front of us was just a little bit faster when it counted, and we'd be faster over those long runs, and we just could never quite get there, but I couldn't be happier to run top-three all weekend," Hayley said. "It's something I've only dreamed about, so I'm really proud of this team." Said Nemechek: "Everyone was hitting each other, moving each other. It's great to come home second, and I can't thank all my guys enough."
Michigan race winner discusses his family's jam song and more RELATED: Kenseth wins at Michigan Matt Kenseth dominated on the track on Sunday to win the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway and his six-year-old daughter, Kaylin, had a predetermined family celebration planned out. Appearing on "The Dan Patrick Show," Kenseth told the host just how he celebrated after his third victory of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the celebration involved that catchy Kool & The Gang classic hit. (You know, you know it.) Let's let Kenseth describe the scene involving the whole family. "Katie was there. My three little girls were there, which was fun, so they got to go to Victory Lane. We were at the race track for a really long time so I have this radio station in my car when I take my girls to school that we always listen to and its called 'Kids Classic Hits' and you have all these songs come on. It's like old pop stuff but it's kind of for kids and so they like Kool & The Gang 'Celebration' believe it or not. "And Kaylin’s like, 'if you ever win a race dad, we listen to 'Celebration' on the way home.' So we all got in the rental car and I found 'Celebration' on my phone and we were all singing to that on the way to the airport. So that was our celebration." Patrick was amazed by the thought of the 2003 Cup champion singing and pressed for some details. "Yeah it was pretty funny. They usually got me trying to sing Taylor Swift, which was slightly embarrassing for me since I've always liked metal. Kool & The Gang 'Celebration' was kind of better than that." And while Matt may like metal, it's been Taylor Swift jams that have been flowing in the Kenseth household. "Metallica has always been my all-time favorite band. I like a little bit of everything. I don't get to listen to my genre of music as much as I used to. "Lately, my four-and-six-year-old (daughters Grace and Kaylin) have been extremely addicted to Taylor Swift music so I have that in my head way more than I wish I would but that's better than having Yo Gabba Gabba! in your head."
