In a special edition of Backseat Drivers, NASCAR decided to contest a show and debate with the children of Denny Hamlin (Taylor), Kyle Larson (Owen) and Aric Almirola (Alex).
Hosted by Taylor, the three kids talk about differnt stuff, including their favorite driver and who will win the championship this season.
Alex chose his dad as his favorite driver but also Alex Bowman. As for Larson’s son, Owen, he decided to not select his father and rather chose Brad Keselowski as his favorite driver. It came as a surprise to Larson who jokingly posted that he hoped his son meant Brad Sweet and not Keselowski.

As for their pick of the driver to win the 2021 championship, Alex and Owen picked 2020 champion Chase Elliott to repeat the feat again this season. As for Taylor, she was confused regarding who to pick.
While she was pondering about who to choose from Chase and Brad, Alex reminds her that her dad, Denny, is in the playoffs, even though he hasn’t won yet. Owen then adds that Denny is the points leader.
She finally picks her dad as the championship favorite after being convinced by the other two kids.
