And they were with mark and And listen to these guys in and watching. These guys. And i learned a whole lot. Because i felt like that was like my real very first race team and drove. I've lived in gerald ford. I drove one hundred miles a day to get there but then that day rash. Yep they'll blue chuck. I still got it. Four hundred seventy five thousand miles but that that set my career in motion them them years at rush with these two guys here and there was a couple of other ones but especially these two guys because we hung out a lot in and we had a good time and then further along in the career. I got with buddy here and buddies sort of took me to the next level not really add much about working on cars but about the people in the business and and all that where i could take my step to become crew chief and and go on so with these guys drive here. Definitely instrumental. Michael did you did you to actually work together. Jeff burton jeff burton. Buddy made my life miserable. Because i had the brother walk over and say here's what jeff's got his car but i can't drive what he drives. I think the best part about it was. We made liberty miserable and we set out to do that.
