Just needed one more lap to pass the 2 car? Did he not know Brad was in tire saving mode.??
Last lap Brad pulled away from him going to the checker. I guess being a whiner he needed something to say.

WAAAAAAAAAAA the #17 raced me and wouldn't let me by WAAAAAAAAAAAA

Truex is becoming less and less likeable. Also, I'm starting to believe as good as a driver Martin is. He struggles with the handling of cars of its not glued to the bottom of the track. Don't get me wrong he's an excellent driver, but he's not good in adjusting in terms of adjusting on track. Like what happened with Stenhouse, if he was able to actually move up a lane or use the high side, he would have been okay.

Fantastic driver, but once the success came and came often he became a diva. Its the reason why we as fans like a driver less and less at times. When the success comes, why change your persona?

I agree, after Stenhouse, Kez ran high and low lines, I wonder what Truex thought about that? And then he acts like psst caught Kez in two laps after Stenhouse nothing to it. Well ok, ya caught him and Truex said that he had the best car. I guess he thinks we are a bunch of dummies trying to blame his loss on Stenhouse, he had his chances to pass Keselowski and couldn't get it done. Blame yourself.

I agree he’s gotten pretty whiny. It’s like every time third or fourth race, there’s Martin whining about something - often something pretty marginal. He seems to think he’s entitled to a certain treatment, even when it’s just a racing deal. He didn’t used to be like that.

I still like him but it is definitely a trend.

Happens when you become a winner.
Has nothing to do with being a winner. When you're spoiled with a great team of engineers, a great CC, and constantly is in the running of winning... Its like being spoiled rotten with success, no one owes you a dang thing on track. You win cool, don't let it get to the head. The winning can stop as easily as it started.

You don't care if he isn't winning, and neither does anybody else.

Stenhouse: "Its junk."

Brian Pattie: "The left side is caved in."

I like Truex, but bitching and pointing fingers all the time will not help himself in the long run. I'm glad Truex has finally reaped his rewards, he's been great in about everything he's been in.

Don't become a diva when things don't go your way, this goes for any driver.

Honestly, I'm surprised there hadn't been a mass exodus of workers from Austin Dillion's team. Richard Childress must pay them very well to put up with his bull****.
That or they all own stock in the company his hats come from?

I have a feeling the crew for the #3 are getting fed up with his whining. They probably wish they had Harvick back.

Well we know what Clint thinks of this package. And Paw Paw’s grandson doesn’t do himself any favors on these things, the next time I go to a race I might listen to his channel more. Could he sound any more entitled, just doesn’t come off as a professional at all.

Anyone know what was up with Bubba there regarding Chase? Or was that an editing trick...

Bubba's really frustrated that he's not in better equipment and I don't blame him
No doubt, a lot of folks on twitter and reddit are talking about, "Someone else would do better than Bubba, etc."

I think that is ridiculous, sometimes Bubba is able to stick the 43 in positions he's not supposed to and its not always down to pit strategy either. The team is cash strapped and he's doing the best he can IMHO. If Bubba can keep his cars clean this year and does well on plate tracks and short tracks, RPM will continue to get attention.

I really think Murstein (Majority owner) is not the most keen on spending money. One-off sponsor races are not helping the cause, they need to find a primary to back them for the majority of the season.

I'm honestly surprised Austin's entire team just doesn't walk off. Such an entitled little brat.

Bubba's frustration is starting to surface with RPM's cars.

The visors go down, these guys are completely different animals. That's how it is with racing though.

I know I've said this before, but I am simply amazed that Austin Dillion's team hadn't just walked off the track. He always sounds like a whiny little bitch when he appears on Radioactive.

That one checked every box: Austin Dillon tantrum, Truex whining, and KyBu on a sailor streak even though he would win.
Then they went and sweetened the deal with the rare Salty Chase.
