“I had already replied, thinking they were kidding. So, that probably made it worse.”
NASCAR drivers and crew members are regularly called to the NASCAR hauler. Typically, this happens after an on-track altercation or post-race altercation.
However, more more than drivers are subject to a visit in the principal’s office. That’s not limited to podcast’s.
Hear from the podcast hosts called to the NASCAR hauler below.
Door Bumper Clear is a podcast out of the Dirty Mo Media stable. It’s hosted by Brett Griffin, Freddie Kraft, TJ Majors and Casey Boat.
Brett Griffin a a spotter for Kaulig Racing. TJ Majors is the spotter for Brad Keselowski. Freddie Kraft is the spotter for Bubba Wallace.
With an hour to fill each week, sometimes the show can go off the rails. And, one particular rant, caught the attention of NASCAR.
“First of all, I didn’t know they were being serious when they called us to the hauler,” Brett Griffin stated via the Door Bumper Clear podcast on DirtyMoMedia.com.
“Obviously, we’re very opinionated on this show. Well, two of us are. We’re very candid on this show. We like to have fun on this show, all five of us.”
“So, when I got this email that we were required to come to the NASCAR hauler for a meeting, and at the time of that meeting was being scheduled, I thought like literally they listened to a segment on the show and found some humor in it.”
Griffin added, “Well, let me tell you something, they didn’t think it was funny. And I had already replied, thinking they were kidding. So, that probably made it worse.”
Freddie Kraft jumped in, “He texts me, ‘Are they serious?’ I said, ‘Yeah, they’re pretty serious.’ “
“They were probably a little angry. But, I think it was just a good meeting for us to all sit down and kinda hash out both sides of, they think we’re idiots and we question some of the stuff they do.”
“A lot of good came from it. We’ve got communications contacts now, where we can present both sides of the argument. And, I think that’s all they really wanted. They wanted the opportunity for us not to just come on here and bash them and them not have an opportunity to respond.”
“They presented their side. We kinda presented our side. I would imagine it’s probably not the last time we’re going to get called in there. Davis was wondering if maybe that’s the first time any podcast has been invited into the principal’s office.”
Kraft concluded, “It will improve our show going forward.”
Out of jail
Griffin added, “I think so too. We’re in there talking about our podcast and the thing’s we say on it as it relates to the NASCAR industry. Then, Sunday, the very next day, it couldn’t have been any crazier.”
“We got safety trucks on the track during qualifying, we got curbs blowing up, cars blowing up. It looks like we grenades out there that we’re dropping on cars. It couldn’t have been any crazier.”
“Probably, when they debrief their races, they had to go through that race thinking, ‘Holy cow guys! We missed some things here.’ “
“But, we have the freedoms to come on here and be very candid with you guys. Give our opinions.”
“At no point am I trying to make it personal as it pertains to NASCAR, NASCAR officials or anybody that wears that bar. I know how hard those guys work to make the sport what it is.”
“There are some things I say about other people, outside of the NASCAR bar, that I do hope they take personal.”
Griffin concluded, “But, I think it’s a good thing. They were so happy that TJ showed up, they actually gave him some NASCAR apparel to wear on the show, from now on. No, it’s great. We’re out of jail.”
