A new story from The Final Lap

The Final Lap


Even if you lock yourself in on qualifying time, that car has to run during the duels and has to actually start the duels for you to be able to make the race. We saw that almost impact Jacques Villeneuve last year when a hesberg car didn't want to fire in their duel after they locked themselves in unqualified speed. So they just have to fire it and run a lap and they can pull it back here. If they want. As long as they start that race, they're good, but they do have to start that race. And there were some nervous moments and that hesburgh pit during that. I was watching it all play out last year. Josh raum, who was kind of helping run that team. I was on the pit wall barking out orders. They were in a frantic situation. They got it squared away, made the race, but my goodness. You could cut that tension with a knife. It was thick, man. Wow. Check out the dual races on FS1. Then there's practices on Friday and Saturday. And then on that Sunday, the 75th NASCAR season kicks off with the 65th running of the great American race, took him ten years to come up with that great idea. The Daytona 500 to 30 p.m. eastern on Fox. Yes, yes, yes, man. I am excited. This season is here here. Next week, we will be doing a preview show. Yes. With rowdy. Yes, with rowdy, I'm excited. This is what it's all about. Final app weeklies back. NASCAR is back. This is what it's all about. We're about to do what we're paid to do, Carrie. We're going to be doing the best NASCAR coverage you can possibly have in the world of podcasts and websites and everything else. So that's what we do. I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you again to Eric o'mara for spending some time with us. And if you like our show, tell ten of your friends. Take their phones. Yeah, I'm upping the game now. Ten of your friends yank their phones, go to their podcasting app, hit subscribe for the final app weekly. And then throw the phone back at them. Amazing. Amazing. I'm taking no prisoners now. Checkered flag is flying on this show. This has been the final app. We can catch us next week right here. When we will, I guess, we'll mention the football game, but we will preview the Daytona 500 and all the stories in between Tobey and I will chat next week. We will, man, and it'll be fun. It'll be a good time.

Coming up next
