During the latest episode of Door Bumper Clear, Bubba Wallace’s spotter, Freddie Kraft stated, “I’ll help him, let’s go, spot on. Listen the only thing worse than having to run a race at that surface yesterday, in that configuration, we had to run a 500-mile race at that configuration, which god help us that should never happen again if we ever have to go back there.” Griffin interjected and stated, “Umn, four hours and 20-plus minutes.”

Kraft added, “I’ve got a really, really, good idea for a configuration of that place. I think anyway. Like what they had before, like there was nothing wrong with that place for 20 years, except for the fact that it would not drive fast. You know I don’t understand why, we had great racing there I thought and then we just went to this ridiculous reconfiguration, where there was like 50 yards of the racetrack that we didn’t even consider using in one and two.”

Kraft continued, “I think there will be something done, but I don’t know what it’s gonna be, but I think that played the part, because of North Wilkesboro getting the All-Star race, and they have an entire year to go back and change Texas before we go back there. we used to put really good races at Texas similar to Atlanta and then we just changed the whole place and we have not hit our a** since then.”

During the race last week, we got a glimpse of how the track treated the cars running on it after several cars seemingly lost their back end and spun out.
