The Chrome Horn Post-Vegas Debrief: Why Junior's gamble really wasn't a big one

A post-race Chrome Horn? No, you're not hallucinating.

Join yours truly and Geoffrey Miller for some post-Vegas chat. We'll explain how the fuel strategy that Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Steve Letarte played really wasn't that much of a huge risk, especially in the context of last year. Plus, we'll explain how we feel crediting the new Chase format for the outcome of Sunday's race may be a bit disingenuous.
