We'll take you back. Let you hear some more of that interview. Part of it was played during our pre race coverage from Daytona or there's a whole lot more to enjoy. And we've. Got that for you along with many many other items as well. But first we catch up with Kim Kun in everything that went on this weekend as far as social media and other matters are concerned. Hello, kim. Hello, mike. Glad to have you back. It was a very exciting speed weeks. But he got force today. It was well, obviously on social media. A lot of people are talking about Daytona five hundred champion. Denny hamlin. I'm sure you saw where they went to stake in shake after the race to celebrate. Obviously he's doing the media rounds currently, but that actually is not my favorite thing on social media from speed weeks. My favorite social post came from Team Penske, do you have any idea? What I'm alluding to? I have no idea what you're talking about here. Well, it's really interesting because we talk about debris a lot on the race track. I know you make calls out from the turns about debris on the grill. Well, not often is debris in the form of cash money. And that's exactly what they found on Ryan blades car after the pit stop. He made when he won stage two they swipe the grill, and they found a Lincoln on the grill of these car. If you don't believe me, I know I know I know if you don't believe me go to team petits Twitter handle there is a photo of it where they say on the last for blaming the Menards crew found a five dollar Bill on the grill. And they have one of the crew members holding the Bill out. Well, how does one pick up a five spot on the race track? And quite frankly for throwing five spots around like some dilemna my term position at some points. I know I know I mean, if it's me I'm hoping it's Benjamin on my grow. But if I'd better than nothing, but I thought that was so funny. It's nothing I've ever seen before. Again. You can look at the photo at Team Penske Twitter. If you don't believe me if I do my math, right? Five dollar Bill is five hundred lucky pennies, unfortunately, they did not work in Ryan's favor because he was part of that one of those final accidents and how to def- in the Daytona five hundred. So they're gonna need every penny and that five spots. Right. Handle the damages to those rates cars after the five hundred. Absolutely. I can't. Well, thank you, very well, very exciting speed weeks, and well for some a ritual speed weeks at least as far as a five dollar bills concern. Yes. Steam Penske five dollars richer, but don't you can follow us at Marin radio in tweet us using the hashtag ask him Aren. Can't we appreciate it? Coming up.

We continue post speed weeks two thousand nineteen it was Sunday. The running of the sixty first day tone of five hundred and Denny Hamlin survived. All of the late race chaos to score his second win in the great American race. Any joins us now on NASCAR live. Any? Welcome back to the show. Congratulations on winning the five hundred appreciate it. Thanks ramming. It wasn't easy by any means. Walk us through that challenging day. You had on Sunday seems like you have a little bit everything thrown your way. Yes. Certainly journals. Pretty well. We're kind of battling for first stage win and got a little bit on the last lap and physician where kind of put myself in a bad spot for didn't finish as well as thought. But in the second stage, we couldn't get the car full we end to make multiple stops. We went on lockdown at one point hundred green, and we did ninety five that was leading actually. Was kinda fun of us. And we saw that those guys were about the pit. So I went ahead and passed them. Just in case a caution came out. Luckily costs did come out with those guys again, she's gonna put us behind quite a bit. So we're kinda got saved by caution. There, you know, in the final stage just methodically made our way back up front and had a good pitstop. Good strategy and kept it up front and in a way from all those wrecks. It went on when you have a situation early in the race win. Something happens in your case. Trouble fueling the car a mechanical issue, and you try to rally back from that is that a distraction, and how do you process that minimizes you keep focused on the task at hand to win these races? You kinda have kind of everything go right because you have to keep track initiative trust much as you can it was it was a challenge for us. Starting third stage. I think twenty second or something like that could be a challenge for you back up front. But luckily, you know, we played the right strategy the right time we came in and extra time tires when no one else did. And allow. Us that kinda take that fuel only stop there towards the end of that attack to back then we really battled our way back to the front from there. So for me, personally, I think that you know, you're going to have adversity. Sometimes you just can't figure how you can not let it affect your role. Finish. We mentioned all the chaos that broke loose late in the race. In seem to happen off the end of the back straightaway. Was it aggressive racing over all are these just slips maybe perhaps mistakes that guys were making what led to the chaos that? We saw in your opinion. Ten laps to go in your twenty second. Right. Just say, you're twenty seconds twenty. You've got to try to make a move to go the front, right? The bad part is your beds already made. You're not gonna get to the front, you know, in that position because he waited too long, and you've either way too long or you got shuffled there or what have you and everyone's trying to get to the front at the same time. And there's just not enough real estate to do that your to to your side dressy show there in momentarily vote anywhere. So what happens so sticks three? And the catch the other two off guard and usually start I know that it's it's situational. But is there a magic lap? Is there? A magic time to wear say, you are mid pack, and you say all right if gonna win this thing, I gotta go is there towards the end of this race that moment or is that fluid from race to race. It's fluid race to race. It's all situational in my opinion. I mean, there's some races where land back is been official at certain parts of the race. Where statistically, it's you know, maybe chaotic, but for the most part, I try to stay up front as much as I can. But it, you know, the situation in the strategy doesn't always play out that way. It's you know, how you overcome that. And if you have to make that extra pit stop like we did in the middle of the race. How are we going to battle from, you know, the back of the pack to the front, and we found a way what does it mean to you to get this win under your belt get it done and get back to victory lane and kind of shake off what was left of last season. Yeah. I mean, it's. Kathleen good to win the first race back. That's always a good thing. And you know, got crazy say but more down we had all of last year go into the playoffs. So we're going to keep building on it. I mean, that'll give us the hopefully a Christian that we need early in the round, you know, eliminates overly last year. It just seemed like a fair fight where so far behind in the points. So we're gonna do everything we can pretend we could to Lanta that you know, we got to win this race tune. So we're gonna stay aggressive and try to give many wins as we can by all start you joined an elite group, you're a two-time winner of the Daytona five hundred but Sunday's win obviously meant something to you for career accomplishments. It was a one two three J G R punch. And then of course, this is in the wake of losing JD. Joe son back on January eleventh what is the mood with the race team? What was the emotional nature of this win for the entire organization? Well, I know my guys were super pumped up about it. I I have really. Revamped team from top to bottom, you know. Most of the road crew, you know, let's say some of the road crew different. But the pit crew is entirely different. You know, obviously, the crew chief changes is is a major change in itself. But so those guys ultimately super super happy a lot of guys won't different team last year kind of spread out through the organization. But generally, you know, they were jacked up, and then he saw the excitement from you know, to gives family themselves. It was if it's just a great victory lane. Kind of you're part of and I know that it is just one race. But right now, you're batting thousand your second opportunity comes this weekend. At the Atlanta Motor Speedway first race with reduced horsepower in the cars, and obviously that will launch us off into the new aero dynamic package with the other facts on it as well. Do you know what to expect this weekend at Atlanta? Not really I mean, I haven't got the test this package, you know, as much as we try to quit. The all star. It is different is different. A lot of ways. I was scheduled to go in the simulator today in driving little bit. But obviously that changed with the Daytona five hundred. So for me, I'm going to be going into pretty blind. I'll know within the first couple of that's kind of what I got. But certainly, you know, I I don't know fact until actually happen. Unknowns awareness at the Atlanta Motor Speedway coming this weekend. The folds of honor quick trip five hundred our friends at the performance racing network will have that call this weekend. One more thing before we let you go. I know that when athletes perform well, they happen to hear from other, athletes and other celebrities curious to know after you won the race on Sunday night. Who did you hear from anybody of note? Yeah. I mean, you know, watches where the guys who kind of reached out and actress and three doubts get we're part of the same management group, which is great. But it's catty friendly when the masters handful years ago. So got great relationships with him a bunch of guys, and obviously the basketball industry golf industry stuff like that. And it's just it's amazing. You know to have support from friends like that that, you know, keep up with you on a weekly basis, and I'm sure they'll keeping up with your points bowler and seeing if you can rack up another one this weekend.

MR ins Winston Kelly had a chance to sit down with our seeing Daytona and talk about some of the best moments. That are see are has ever seen Earnhardt inside on Richard children squeezes out of the outside lane. It will move up a non you always talk about only in America. Why is that? Well, you know, I'm surprised of our country and our flag, and and everything we got going on with with this great country live. I've been fortunate to travel all over the world and go to countries that aren't even close to what we are in in third world countries in socials when I touched ground here. It's great. But then I think back in the reason I say it in bad every time I speak. How come out say only in America only in America could with a key with a dream and a note twenty dollar rice car, be speaking to Winston Kelly here on imortant when you think about where it came from talk about your early days early remembrances above in grey stadium before actually racing. Yeah. I was key it, then our stepdad cares. I can't remember really hellos more. I think about us probably t n Levin years. Oh, and my brother went with me, and we. Win. Remember watching the rice when night and rice drivers came a hero's and anew after going over there and Clement offense and getting in or walking in with somebody who were selling peanuts and popcorn. And it was just a new what I wanna do from at day in. They had a ninety nine dollars claiming division and went out, boating. Oh, twenty dollar ice car. You mentioned you had a dream. What was that? During was it just a race? Or was it bigger than that? It was bigger than that. Because you can over there at MoMA grace same. They would put a sheet up over there on east play football there, and they would show the old Rice's from Daytona in different places. And I'll watch those guys rice seen how they live. How they they were just fun Levin bunch of gas. And that's that's the way I won't be in life. And and it was good to go down there and hang out with rice drivers. And and see how they really did. There are a number of bellwether days bell. Weather moments over the past fifty years. Talladega nineteen sixty nine is one of those what happened that weekend in. Why was it so important to Richfield IRS and Richard Childress racing count? It it started out we'd rice there and back in the day. Bill France or the track she go to give us a deal money in. And I think he gave us five hundred bucks to come down in a rice at rice. Plus what we won think one thousand or so dollars twelve hundred dollars for it was and then we ran Bill France senior came over that evening when the PDA pulled out at Talladega for the speeds in ISA boys, I won't run rice, mar pay another five hundred thousand orbit was he was going to pay us and in one another couple of thousand dollars of the purse I won that day, and I came home with four or five thousand dollars more money at ever had in my life. I thought I'd never have to work again. Fifty years later still worked, but but the co thing about it was I and I was only in my twenties, and I went I was smart enough to go and buy some land and start Mon business and build a business of of building working streetcars and billing wreck cars, and it was a break on the to stay in rice. You continue to have some successes driver. But then made the decision that it was time to step out of the car become an owner, but somebody else in the car. How did you learn heart get hooked up that very first time? Well, we knew each other in race against each other hundred never will forget a one to rice ever metro Atlanta one day and Dale come up to me he finished sack kale and erect on the last lap spun off still wonder rice and Dale Fain saying come over and poked me sick next time rice against I'm gonna win. And he proved that way many many. Times, but we got hooked up. Rod Austrian had soul to JD Stacy his rice team and build it won't be so and he came over he and some other guys with RJ Reynolds came over and said, hey, we won't they won't drive for you. I've heard you only get out of the car not could see change with Osterlund Stacy Warner. Hodgson, so many people coming into sport. It was a gun become a big money sport. And I didn't have the money for didn't use something do something I was going to be out of business. So I took. Junior Johnson's advice in put Dale Earnhardt car. I never will forget we were to downtown or in Aniston, Alabama, whom we put our deal together for teen rices. You guys seem to have so many connections. You know, you both like to hunt you like to fish. But one of the other things is you both were racers. I and then became businessmen. How did that kind of mesh together for you guys and the success at translated to on the racetrack and authorize track for you guys? Dale was really a very very savvy businessman, and I was fortunate enough to have some good guidance. When I was very young to make some good decisions. I'm never had anything gave to me. I always worked to where we are today. Father died when I was about six years old his father passed away. We had a lot of things in common. We both had mothers. We love we had so many things. In common. I guess raise a lot of people didn't give a year get along because both per little hot hidden heavy. He hard headed, maybe you may call it. But we knew there was something special relationship, and we built so much trust in that relationship is what made a destroy six championships together. Checkered flag and the Winston Cup championship today. Earnhardt everybody's saying here take congratulate retro Taylor's does one of them stand out more than the other. And if so why I would say probably the first one for me would stand out more than anything his lack a load being taken off my back. Here had a championship driver driving for us. And we went nineteen eighty five. We had the worst year, I told Dale Dale. You're better driver than you need to be here. Never will forget we got back to my house. I spent tonight at my house up in Winston Salem there. And he said. We started this together, and we're gonna finish it together. In next year. We came back we one nine or ten rices and won the championship. And it was just a load off my back that we were able to give him reward him with a championship because of him sticking with us one of our darkest days, of course, two thousand one, but you can't going because of a pack the two of you guys had what was that? We were hunting out in New Mexico, and Ma horse. We all he always joked about being a great horse. Rick and flipped off the mountain and got all busted up head bar his gun to finish outcome with in gap back to camp at night. And we were hanging out around the campfire you having a though beverage in. We were having so much fun. Just talking about that reckon they and I looked over to us today. If anything ever happens to me if I hadn't made it off at mount today, you know, you head win on raced. At we were on our way to Phoenix. And he said if it ever happens to me, you gotta keep going, and I thought about that that Teves day we were stayed down here with Bill France, and my Hilton that group and after that bad day, and then I thought about it and the walk inside and the Cowboys hedging says Bobby going to Rockingham Takhar white call NASCAR.

It's important to keep in mind that the goal is to keep cars closer together longer like the all-star race in Charlotte last year, but with some important tweaks after learning from that event and later tests, bigger spoilers splitters for more downforce will be the most visible to fans engines restricted to about five hundred fifty horsepower. Compared to a more normal seven. Fifty sounds huge. But remember that cars at Daytona ran about four hundred horsepower. And last year's all star race at about four fifty the big difference between this week and next will be aired nuts at Atlanta most Pocono races Darlington and homestead those will be used to help. Cool the brakes at Las Vegas and other intermediate size tracks they'll be used to make a bigger bubble of air around the cars to help with passing like expanding cars, use it. Indianapolis seven-time chant Jimmy Johnson tested at both Atlanta and Vegas now had an opinion going into the Las Vegas test on based on all star racing in my opinion changed on the test in cornerstone throughout high Telstar race. We are close to the as attraction with the car that I I thought we would be, but there is a huge drop from a straight. So I think I dealing you know, we're gonna have big runs on on each other the straightaways same than being able to take two and three wide ailing in the corner. Still gonna be an issue special over tires. Surface that could string things out that I wouldn't -ticipant a stain in a big pack and a lot more competitive passes. Bush says the tracks themselves will be a huge factor in determining how well the new package work. Tracks are going to be different summer kinda going to be the same. You know, we look at places like Atlanta, California where the tires were out. And you definitely have a lot of comers goers. You know, you might see guys qualify up front that are trimmed out to be able to go fast and carry speed through the short run. But typically gets into a long run you're gonna have long run races as well to that. Our cars are typically faster in a long runs, and we'll be coming through at the end, you know. So it just kind of depends. I hope that it still comes down to the guys that know how to set up the race cars, really. Well, the drivers communication degree chiefs. Chiefdom your job with cars engineers as well. As the guys back the shop building fast race cars still hope all of that comes to permission, then we can see the good guys. Good guys in and have not have not just like last week where fans were concerned that the Daytona five hundred might wind up similar to the right around the top strategy. They saw in the clash and duel races. Only to see a completely different NATO defied hundred Martin directs junior says we really don't know what to expect. I think it's a big question Mark crawl. I think it's gonna look similar some tracks different and other. I think really the track. Folks are the big key. Whether it's going to work out the way they wanted to or not it's really gonna change. What it looks like? So we'll just have to wait Z. Honestly, I think his driver's competition. We all wanna win. We're gonna do whatever we can figure it out better than everybody else. And that's our job. I don't worry about packages and rules. I just go drive and trying to figure out how to win even last year's Atlanta winner, isn't sure what we'll see. But Kevin Harvick does believe the race within a race will be who can figure it out more quickly. We've never had forty cars on the racetrack together in the close form that we have at the all star race. So there's there's really more questions than there are answers at this particular point. I think from a race team standpoint, we really have no idea of what to expect as to what's going to be better speed or handling and until you race. There's really no way to to have that answer. So we're we're going to be acquiring notes. And all the things that come with the first, you know, six weeks of the season trying to figure out what we need to do as well. And how we're going to race in what it's going to look like as we the first. Season despite the changes just like with other evolutions in competition someone or several someone's adapt faster and the rest will play up that race starts this weekend. And Atlanta, thank you. What he it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these drivers adapt. Not only this weekend at Atlanta, but points beyond in Las Vegas. I assume race way and the auto club speedway as well.

Welcome back to live as we head into Atlanta this weekend motoracing network. We'll have coverage of the Atlanta two hundred for the gander outdoors truck series. That's coming up four PM eastern Saturday afternoon are Dylan well had the opportunity to sit down with the defending winner of that race and the defending champion of the truck series Brett Moffitt. Well, Brett, I know Daytona didn't end how you wanted it to but showed a lot of speed. And and the truck seem like it was good overall this transition from Shige team to GM s were you pleased with with how things went in Daytona, ask very pleased. Honestly, you know from the outside looking in competing against GM all year last year. No, they really prove that their staple in the truck series. And and they've earned it three there from lap one. At Daytona was very clear to me that it was the best speedway. I've ever been in. I've had a lot of speedway success which continued on last weekend. But we. Actually had a lot of fun doing it. That was my first time enjoying speedway racing. I felt like if we got back to the front there we really could've controlled the race especially to come with my teammates with me. It was a bummer for sure. But I gotta say they made the transition super easy on me as a driver and brought a really patch sevi- Silverado the Trat. So if we keep doing that I'll be very happy me was there really a big adjustment to to deal with the with the change. Not really at say. The biggest thing is just getting another people, you know, working with a new crew chief and Jerry Baxter actually known him since the days of racing Kane for Michael Waltrip racing. He was on their program at the time. We've never had a working relationship. But we've always known each other for quite some time now. So the biggest thing is just getting in the shop getting to know the guys and girls that edge EMS and really just going forward from there gets the racetrack and start working together. I know it it obviously wasn't you in victory lane. But to see guys victory Daytona. A happy for some of them. I'll say that. I got some good friends still over there. So you know, it was good for them to get a win there and start on the right foot. I wish it could have been us. But I think we'll go to Atlanta here and try to kick mass moving forward to Atlanta. You guys were so strong last year on the on the mile and a half for rain. And obviously the GM teams to what are you most excited about going to Atlanta is I'm just getting excited to go back to a real racetrack. You know, ski Larissa luck of the draw. I think what nine Trump's finished or whatever so lane, I can control your own fate and destiny a little bit more. You can go out there. And if we have a really competitive Chevy Silverado say up front, stay out of trouble. And it is a bit of a strategy. Call there in the last stage at pens on win cautions come out. It's really going to shake the field. A little bit of someone were to hold onto a set of tires. A late caution comes out they're gonna make out. Really? Well, so I'm just excited. Go back to attract where you know. It's a little bit more like traditional race. And strong mom house last year and look forward to join up with them this year to try to repeat. Yeah. How much confidence does that give you as good as they were in as good as you were on the mile and a half as much as that makes up the schedule, and that probably makes you feel pretty good going here. Yeah. I really feel like they were strong GM s strong everywhere. We went, you know, we pretty good everywhere. We went we had a few tracks. We flat out missed it. And under thing with that is relying on teammates Sheldon credence to freezing works close under our camp. And I think that's going to help if do show up to a racetrack and miss MRs setup off the truck, we can all three work together and go in different directions and find out what works best. So hopefully that will be a minimum this year, and we work together. Well, and is huge confidence with one of the best teams in the industry's for quite some time. Now, how is it different being there than it was being I'd say, it's a lot more. You know, they're still a small team. But it's a lot more like back when I was racing. Up with those teams. But there's a lot more depth. You know, they're they have lot more quick -ment and a lot more personnel. So, you know, it's it's still not a huge team by any means. But there's a lot more to rely on in depth and strengthen that Depp. Does it feel different having to not worry about the fact if you're going to be racing the next week or not for sure? Yeah. I mean that was that was super hard last year. It was it was a survival mode kind of deal where it was just get to the racetrack. And then once we got the racetrack. Then you switch over to. Okay. How are we going to be competitive this weekend? Which fortunately Scotts valley did a great job. And the guys they're put that all aside and focus on the job at hand wants got to track, but you know, going into this season knowing that I'm going to be with one of the best teams in the series. And that we're going to go race for a championship from the get-go. It's a huge weight off my shoulders now all afternoon folks on being the best driver, I can be and being the best. I can be on and off the racetrack physically mentally and just just build on. Last year success and try to even better this in what ways does something like that way on your mind where you don't know. Rive differently. I don't think he'd drive any differently. You know once I got to the racetrack. We just completely shut it off. It was just a lot of stress during the week that I wouldn't say was necessary or not ideal. You know, it wasn't a safe situation. But obviously when you're not in the focus on that you can focus on what makes you better as a driver in. What makes you better as a team instead of how are we going to get there this year as the defending champion? How does that? Is it rusher is it? Good with that pressure. Does it motivate you what what is it feel like going back to these places? I think I've always been good my career of I put the most pressure on myself. I have the highest expectations for myself. And when I'm not successful. I'm the only one that is doubting myself. So, you know, it's it's a sport. Where all that matters is winning. But the in the past champion, I feel like a lot of the year last year with it being my first time racing fulltime again, I was still learning, and I was learning how to run for championship and learn how to be desisted and some of the tracks for the first time ever been there in a Trump. So, you know, I think it's it's pressure for sure, but it's all coming from which in in me wanting to take last year and have that BS starting stone in performing better this. Thank you Dylan.
