From my experience, each team uses a single frequency for race comms (spotters, chief, and driver).

I cant answer your specific question but I can say I took my scanner to a race and learned you can not hear anything (on scanner) unless you have big headphones on. Those cars are LOUD !

Yep, turns out people wear those funny looking RE headsets for a reason!

The tiny "trackside" antenna does not work as well as the stock ducky for me at Pocono. It sounds like some of the team repeaters are located a bit afar from the track.

As racetoys points out, some teams use a second freq for garage or other communications.

I personally think listening to your favorite drivers adds to the whole NASCAR experience!

Get out there and have a great time!

Here's my fav NASCAR site for info and gear:
