Swear words and frustration dominated the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team radio channels during last Sunday’s GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.
At one point, driver Clint Bowyer took a look around his No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford on the track and noted: “This is about the time all hell breaks loose.”
Eventually, it did.
Although it took longer than usual for “The Big One” to arrive, eventually it did and multiple cars were wadded up in the huge wreck.
In the end, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. came home the winner in his No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford. But there was a whole lot of entertaining radio chatter worth listening to on his journey to Victory Lane for the first time in Stenhouse’s Cup career.
