NASCAR America: Scan All from Charlotte: Crew chief feuds and jet dryer jokes

Go behind the scenes at Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600 as Austin Dillon pulled out his first win of the season.

“Yeah, baby! I dodged all of that. That was awesome!”

That was Jimmie Johnson’s reaction after he narrowly drove his No. 48 Chevrolet through a Lap 20 crash in the Coca-Cola 600.

It’s one of the many highlights from this week’s edition of “Scan All,” which culminates with Austin Dillon winning his first Cup race.

The race was stopped for 1 hour and 40 minutes due to a passing storm that covered the track in rain.

Before the jet dryers and Air Titans took the track, jokes were being made at the expense of former Cup driver Juan Pablo Montoya, who infamously crashed into a jet dryer during the 2012 Daytona 500.

“You think now would be the appropriate time for a jet dryer joke?” asked Clint Bowyer’s crew chief, Mike Bugarewicz. “How many cars does it take to take out a jet dryer? Just Juan.”

During the race, the crew chief for Jimmie Johnson and Erik Jones grew increasingly irritated with how the other team’s drivers positioned their cars in the adjoining pit stalls.

“The ****ing crew chief on the 77, I cannot wait to pay him back for this ****,” Chad Knaus said.

“He’s got my blood pressure up, you’re going to have to calm me down,” Jones’ crew chief, Chris Gayle said.

One of the main storylines this week has been Kyle Busch’s very brief post-race press conference after he finished second. His frustration didn’t begin there.

As the checkered flag waved over the race, Busch yelled and cursed in anger over once again not winning a points race at Charlotte.
