Twenty five percent of the championship for has been determined in the monster energy NASCAR Cup series with Joey Lugano's win. Last Sunday at the martinsville speedway. Lugano and his number twenty two team have not been considered one of the big three this year with Kevin Harvick Kyle Busch.

You know, winning the Brickyard in southern five hundred you know, we had five wins. Plus a couple of wins in the Daytona before the five hundred.

Joey Logano and Martin true ex junior fighting for the checkered flag, Joey the Gano taking it and also punching his ticket into the championship four at homestead Miami speedway. Joey Logano joins us right now. Joey, welcome back to NASCAR live, congratulations. What's happening? How are you? We're doing great not as good as you though. Not only did you. Did you win a grandfather clock? But you're also you also have a seat to the championship four table. They're at homestead Miami speedway. Coming up. Man. Sounds real nice. That's a know the goal when you go to martinsville. It's all about thinking about Miami. A lot of times. And how do you win there to such yourself up in the best buy, and and that's what we're able to do. Just have a great race car. Great pitstops, the piss us credible. And that's really what put us in mission to to to make the move. And then when the rich, you know, it's amazing. You're talking about pitstops. We'll get into the nuts and bolts of the end of the race in a moment. But a couple of things before we get there you talking about pitstops with forty one to go. You guys had a. Clutch pit stop. That puts you out in front. It seemed like that the team on pit road. Flawless all day. Not a misled. No speeding no penalties. And it seemed like that it was one of. I don't wanna call it. Perfect. But from where we observed it looked like it was as close to that. As it could be was that. Indeed, the case, I think all day, quite rare. It was like that. That's amazing hit the great billions of rich coach and everybody kind of gets a lot easier because your picker didn't amazing seven reports of disagree. Great team effort, really because he had a great car had great pitstops and driver to his job to which is good and. You know, if the overall a well executed day, you you are executing at the end of the race found yourself on the outside lane and was in depressive, Ron you had a couple of guys underneath you had a couple of times. And the car was able to hang in the second lane up from the bottom is that something that just happened. How did you know that you had that outside lane capability there when you started to use it? Well, you know, I really ever since the last couple of years Goodyear is brought to a little bit of a different tire that really represent the racetrack. And forces drivers to move up survey check at martinsville, which we've never seen. This higher really allows that the second lane to come in. And and you know that last run we just we made some Jennifer potato get occurred to fire quicker because he had a shorter route known his only about forty laps or so they didn't like it covers off a little bit that run. And so I was doing only Handa to play defense and is tight as I was in the center. The the only way I can make any speed with Ruben up the race track. But the last thing you wanna do sometimes when you're at Martin was move up the racetrack does not a safe place to be. But that was kinda my only play at that moment. Well, and at the end of the race white flag comes out you and Martin going for the win. And there was contact on the last latte, which is which is resurrected the age old debate about the bump and run which you apply obviously to Martin to get the win. How long did you know that you were going to have that that that moved to play? When did you know that that was your final option there to try to get the checkered flag going down the back straightaway into turn three in the last last that was that was the only move ahead left. Trying to hold them off your everything. I can't for that for that moment. But yeah, go down the backstretch. I thought well this is my only shot over the race tack and get her defense industry to start finish line. That was that was the goal. You know, it wasn't a crash in like that which we didn't we just able to push them up just enough to get underneath him. And and try to play the power in in like I said have that drag races finish line. None of us can understand the position that you're in because the majority of us have never driven a stock car before and never will. But when you get in that position. And you know, you have that one last option and that option is the bump and run. What is it like trying to manage? The the exhilaration of the moment the enthusiasm of the moment while not trying to turn it into a dump and run, you know, what I'm saying not to go in there too hot. And then turn him around. Like we saw last year. Yeah. I think yes, is an athlete you find a way to to control yourself in this in those high intensity moments where he think your heart rate may be going through the moon in might may have been. I'm not sure, but I those moments you trying to find a way to just take a depressant. I remember to to go going back straightaway. And we're to rates the heck out of each other. I took a deep breath for a second just to keep myself your control than in in the right mindset in mega she didn't make any mistakes because it was about forty qualifying laps there at the end that you're trying to tie together and not make any mistakes at all. 'cause you know, what's on the line. It's not just a race on the line is the championship possible championship on the line. So I it's a big deal. And that's what these playoff for about them. Some great debt. Nascar is has. The situations that they put these drivers in t to to to make the hard decisions sometimes and enforce us to race so hard it. That's what that's what our sport needs. That's what it's about. Of course, we mentioned that you've already been guaranteed a spot to race for the championship which leaves the next two races. Basically, I don't want to say stress-free, but reduce stress re- can go out and get the win. What's it? Like now knowing that you're going to Texas this weekend. And I assume raceway the following weekend. And you're not in that position where you have to make something happen to race for a championship. Yeah. I don't know if it if it reduces stress, if you're I part, it just you just change the focus some, you know, we can go to Texas and Phoenix racing nothing to lose. I believe that's an advantage. And that's pretty cool to trophies that we really wanna get. So I think that's a nice place to be. But it also allows us to shift our focus from to to Miami. And have that advantage to where we just build a an awesome. Car. Hopefully, and and something that we can really race with and think about elaborate now, well, you're going to be thinking about winning the AAA Texas five hundred Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway attract that has been reconfigured repave. And it looks like the aging process is kicking in from your perspective. What type of track is is Texas Motor Speedway. What can we expect from that mile and a half this coming weekend? Texas is ever since they repaved it has really changed. Get one in reply. And the don't wanna do anything yet today. And then he hit to turn three and four and you're going so fast. It's unreal. With all that banking over that. And so it it's driver. It's a challenging race check for a race team. Receive a more challenging I think trying to set up a race car for that, you know, because you have to make that compromise. It's really hard to get both those in balanced well in in your race car. What's the sensation of speed at Texas like from where you sit? I say three and four is is quite the sensation. Because you're you like into Kohner and thinking that I'm barely gonna live at all. And in qualifying you might not even live depending on what the track temperatures are going to be. His a cessation of speed for sure. And I know that you're up to the task everybody is up to the task. And it's the it's the race that Marx three racist to go in the season.

It's a week full of candy pictures on the various social media platforms for Halloween and a lot of discussion about the wild finish at martinsville. Here's our Kim Kun with the social media him. Well, nyc phantom ever wondered what it's like to live on the NASCAR circuit. They've got their answer. CMT has a new reality show coming in January called racing wives where a few of the prominent wives in the series are giving you a behind the scenes look of what the industry is all about in college was actually asked about the reality show over the weekend at martinsville. And how he feels about his wife being on television. I think it's it's just a unique opportunity in a sneak peek into the lives of us, mostly the wives obviously outside of racing in what we do here at the racetrack each and every weekend. People get thirty seconds snippet sometimes of drivers. On camera, you know, and make their personnel off of what they see their and their opinions off of that. And they don't necessarily know what we're like away from the tracks. So, you know, it's it's I think it's more exciting for the for the girls. Samantha obviously, huge into the Ivy F and being an advocate for that. And what we've all had our challenges of conceiving our son and now with going through the second round for a girl. Hopefully, you know, she's also got some other aspirations that. She's got with her store and some other things that will come out in the show that she's trying to do. So it's about awareness to those things and and trying to help build her brand in the awareness. And look if we're able to get, you know, three new viewers from that show that tune in on Sunday, then it's a positive, right? It's a win. So that's kind of how we look at. It seems like it's going to be a very interesting show and Samantha's actually tweeted about it. They had a press junket recently. She said press day for racing wise on scene t were so excited for you to watch on Thursday, January third nine eastern time. So mark. Your calendar. Set your DDR's, I cannot wait to see everything and all the drama on racing wives also Halloween week, which means everybody is on social media talking about the Holiday Inn Morenz.

Leave it to a bunch of racers and make Halloween a bunch of competition too easily Clinton having a little fun with that answer. I would love to see Clint though, dress up as Kyle Busch. Now, how funny would that be? But some other teams and drivers getting in on Halloween fun on social media. Jimmy Johnson posted a photo of his daughter Lydia, saying who's ready for Halloween. She's weighing a bell gown from the Disney movie beauty and the beast, but then a Darth Vader face masks.

This is NASCAR live study night start. Chase Elliott going to victory lane. Now back to Mike Bagley. Welcome back to ask our live as you heard there. It's been an impressive playoff so far for young chase Elliott of Dawson Ville, Georgia. He's already won three times in two thousand eighteen two of them coming in the last round of the playoffs are Kim. Kun sat down with chase over the weekend. With the latest edition of face to face. A standard statement every race win will chase Elliott win. He wanted. What Glenn he wanted to over today? He wins at Kansas speedway in the Hollywood casino. Four hundred three wins this season another saying, you know, you win one. Once you get to I one than others come easily. But from your perspective is that how it's felt no myth personally. I don't I mean to me. The only difference is we've been in better positions. I think the last couple months versus what we were say at the beginning of the year, whatever. So I think that's been the biggest difference is just having been in better position to closing a race which all that kind of gun. This comes down to being faster and being erased a top five if you're doing that, then he no, different strategies and things can be relevant to you. Otherwise, you're year on different game plans and whatnot for the back of the deal that doesn't really matter. So I think that's the biggest difference is just run better. Looking at this next row? Round. Is there one in particular that you feel more than any others that you guys could win and lock yourself into homestead like to think Kenny O M thing that's got to kind of be your mindset. I just don't think there's really any room. So to shrug a whole lot, you know in this round. And and you know, it's gonna be tough. There's a lot of a lot of heat now eight cars, and everybody's going to be pretty good. So it's yeah. Like, I said, it's not a lot of room for your definitely not a lot of rooms struggle and certainly can make any mistakes, you know. But yeah, I think any of them, you know, I think Texas to me is probably been our as of late in our biggest struggles since they repaved it. But yeah, I don't know. We'll see his fear that your team might get complacent because winds are nice and obviously to in the last three is a big deal. Is there any fear that they might just get, you know, comfortable with the winning situation and not put in the effort that you guys have seen over the last couple of weeks now. No, I think if we were going to get complacent it would have been this last round and just really really excited to see that. We did it as a whole and that. Yeah. Like nice that was right. You know, be really easy to take that win at Dover and cruise near the next two weeks and not bring our best effort. Talladega was was really bad. I thought you know, in general, obviously didn't work out. But you have to go to Kansas and and stay on kill. I thought was nice. And I think that everybody kind of had that mindset. So no, I don't expect at the change. Now. Hendrick recently announcers shift in two thousand nineteen checking out it's going to work with William Byron Kevin meanderings Newman up to work with Jimmy. I know that it doesn't affect your team specifically. But do you feel like it's going to freshen up things over Hendrick in general as an whole organization, it has has opportunity to I think that I think debate you're saying that it's gonna do just make all four cars stronger. You know, I'm excited to see that, you know. No that. You know, obviously, Chad Jimmy that's great things over the years. And and I think everybody kind of misses that narrative and most the right about all the problems or problems, they think they have. But I think, you know, just one of those things time for a change in wanna do something different. I think we all need to respect that for one and give them a chance to do something different. And and see how it goes. So yeah, I think it's gonna make make everybody better. And if we're better as hold, and we're going to be we're all going better in the could you end critique, Alan Jackson, potentially be the next Chattan Jimmy because it seems like you guys have finally kinda hit your stride. And you know, it takes to win. And to put yourself up to be championship contender. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I've I've I've always enjoyed working with him. And I enjoy our relationship. It's really straightforward simple. And and he lets me do my thing. I let him do his he didn't question me. I don't question him. And that's just you know, it's just simple. And you know, we're is demeanor. And his personality reminds me a lot of my dad, and yeah, it's been fun to work with himself. I don't know the future holds but working with him. And and hopefully, we can have some some success over the recently intended to Metallica concert. Doesn't seem like you're seeing just because I know you love country music. What was it like? Yeah. Definitely not my scene. I got kind of drug into that. But it was it was okay, I'm shy. Get bashed for say. Metallic is. Okay. But I just. When I can't hear the words to half of your half of your songs. I don't think that's for me out, whatever floats your boat. But it was those allowed to there that enjoyed it. So I had a good time. One of those things where you know, they are legendary I guess in their own, right? So glad I said that I got to go lease. I could say one time any other concerts on the docket coming up nothing nothing as of as of late. So I don't know I need to work on off-season plans because they're pretty boring right now. So we're we have some work to do. No work on it. We'll see. So no plans when the checkered flag pies and site besides outside that what's the first thing. You're gonna do when it's finally the off-season. Yeah. Well, I don't know. I go home first, and then kind of figured out from there about you might ask them. Get together, whatever background home with some friends, but the siphon that we typically spend some time in Colorado throughout December. And Noah season's over. We still have the banquet obligations and different better. She's and things for next year. The December says not quite over yet. But once that stuff ends may maybe out west or more warm. I don't know one of the Halloween coming up this week. What is your favorite Halloween costume? You've ever worn. Let's get question. I don't know. It's been quite a while since I've participated in in dressing up like, I was buzz light year one year. Now's kid. I thought that was pretty cool. I don't know. Yeah. I need to I really need to do better at that. I I don't feel like I'm I don't not do it. Because I think it's not cool. I just have been lazy not going to get a costume. So Anita work on that some guests for this year know, not even thought about it. So we'll see. A seventh place finish at martinsville. This past week has chase on the outside looking in when it comes to the championship. Four matter of fact, chase is thirty one points below the cutoff line as we head to Texas Motor Speedway. But then again, if he wins this weekend, Texas or the following week at Phoenix that could solve everything and chase would go into the playoffs coming up.

This is NASCAR live for the six five and two thousand eighteen the twenty third time in Nath car Camping World series career Johnny solder take victory laid now back to Mike Bagley. That's how it sounded Saturday afternoon at martinsville speedway as Johnny solder earned yet. Another grandfather clock are what he came dialed up the former champion following the wind to discuss Johnny the way this weekend. Started off you had rain all day Friday and didn't really get to work on magic. What you had hoped to work on before the race. How did you guys just from there to find yourselves in victory lane? Aaron head Joe and. People are everybody s we kinda. Effort to try to make our stuff better at writing Bill and had a little bit for setback that obviously the rain came. And I said gonna do they gonna put it back to what you had to spring. So. It's funny. How things worked out, but it ended up the enters awesome. So yeah, I connect I pay speed. And you know, the last one hundred lapses just may contribute in the race up. So. Other happen every day. It's something good. So it was fun to go out dominate like that. So for takes Shroff, maybe a little bit. But obviously, we gotta try to win the championship. So good weekend. I think I know the answer this before I even ask, but I'll do it. Anyway, these next two races. Now, are you going to kinda take it easy? Or are you going to go full bore and try and pile up a couple more wins? I mean, obviously, you're already going to raise for championship and homestead, but you got some some sponsors. And a lot of guys who work on that truck to try and make happy, right? Yeah. Yeah. The goal is to win. So, you know, there might be not as much pressure to try to put your way air or whatever in that. You know, you're for championship, but a little bit of a price factor. They're just trying to raise the tar you can't raking without. So I think I speak for everybody. When I say, we gotta we gotta keep digging. So I also feel like you let your guard down a little bit. Sometimes it's it's hard to know her where it needs to be. So we just keep overdoing honesty when race before before it would be phenomenal great race tracks force. So yeah, I you got to keep pushing and I know everybody feels the same race. So that's that's what we're gonna do, Johnny. Let's go back to martinsville for a second. What happened in the Cup racist side? Have you been a little bit surprised that it hasn't been as much of the traditional short-track beating and banging martinsville? As we've seen in the past. I mean, I know we had the last lap deal with with Lugano interaction. You had a little bit of a dust. With with Miot Snyder but relatively minor incidents compared to what we've seen in in years past right? Yeah. For sure I was expecting the race the way crazier there. You talk about at restoring my that was still thirty five laps to go or whatever. So her maybe even forty so you know that whole turn their we run a green at the end. I thought for sure so we're gonna get another car here. So and then it never came. So yeah, I think the racing was definitely calmer. Having said that the reasoning I don't know, exactly. I think maybe some of the guy trying to raise for the championship were were more inclined to just take what they were giving today and not make any, you know, bumps bruises very try to make any enemies or whatever. So. And maybe the other guys were respecting the guys for I don't know. But whatever it was it was kind of nice to see her a little bit refreshing, some people take care. Stuff. That's not always a bad thing. But I know a lot of people like him banging, but yeah, a lot of stuff not destroyed. I guess is the terminology should you? So. Yeah, I thought it was good. You know? I don't know that it will stay that way. Forever. Let's put it that way. Yeah. One constant as always change in this world. That's for sure will four grandfather clocks now, I mean at the top of the hour, you have to put your plugs in your house with all the the ringing. Well. You know, we got obviously we've got a basement up here up in the north. And so we got a couple of lined up next to each other. So it's kind of cool I've got four kids. So, you know, we always make jokes that each one of my grandfather crock someday were for over. So something to remember me by I guess, but cool, you know, it is one of the show Fay's in especially the truck series. So I can't believe we've got four of them. I think it's just really cool. That's such a historical place into to go there and run like we do is just a lot of fun. But it's definitely a cool trophy. You mentioned you definitely want to try and get some more wins before the end of the year, particularly at homestead I'm guessing. But along the way you still got a teammate alive in the playoffs in Justin Halian earlier this season when the playoffs started. I saw him at at Las Vegas in. That was I think one of the first races that you guys had Timothy Peters running with you again and just just stood there. Asking him a bunch of questions and watching. Everything that was going on in later. He said, you know, what when I get a chance to soak up up knowledge like that. I'm gonna take every opportunity that I get how refreshing is it to have a young guy in this day and age who realizes that. He doesn't know everything yet. Really refreshing, obviously. And you know, it's kind of part of my job is to try to help as much as I can. But I'll be honest. You know, you're never too old to learn something. So you can definitely learn something from those guys for sure, you know, sometimes when you're old like preconceived notions. Yeah. Maybe takes a different point of view to change your mind a little bit. So the Justice savage doing a good job has won this year. So you know, it's there's team history. And honestly got out the rate us to my seven her that school to see. So it worked just by you know, everybody's working hard. So it's cool pay off for him and firm, I you know, I hope. Chip some ram in anything. I can do to help him. I'd be more than happy to do that, you know at a place like Talladega. You can obviously draft with teammate and help them out that way, but at different tracks, the the mile and a half, for example. I know it's more of a factor in the truck Senate is in the other series. But is there much on the track that you can actually do to help a teammate at facilities like that? The biggest thing you can help them with is, obviously if you find something practice are lying or a set of change or something like that. But she was you know, a step in the right direction. I think that's probably one of the biggest thing you can do is get that still, you know, right away. So that they can work on it or try it or whatever the case that each so, but you know, as far as the race does, you know, there's probably not a lot I can do 'cause you know, sometimes for different studies or whatever so let all that play out. But. This things under a shot. I guess a little bit cut him a little flat. If it's a restart traffic, or whatever you cut them a little extra. Make sure he can do the things that he wants to do. So but there's really not that I can do to the outcome of the race. But those there's always just trying to help them. Like, I said in a way that you know, that we talked about let's talk a little bit about Texas coming up this weekend. This Friday night you obviously one there earlier this year back in June. How different is racing. They're now since that repave reconfiguration to that track versus what you had before. And that was always one of your favorite tracks. Even before the repave. Ex play bit different earnestly. I think it's put a big emphasis on handling work in particular. It's not where we just try to get them. You know, all traveled up and try to carry as much Stevens. We can't. So it's uh. You know, there's a lot of lifting going on in turn one and two for Trump racing at a mile and a half. We typically don't have as much. So you know, one two is pretty demanding. It's it's a long sweeping corner. But for entry to one all the way to the center, you kinda you don't ever get that, you know, feeling that yet pitcher stable or stuff to the face? Check the trap that the banking up till you get towards middle of the corner. So it's kind of like a period of of you know, you feel like no-man's-land there for itself. That's probably the toughest part about that. Now is just getting feel that you want to get on entry. And then having a turn on on late up to. So a lot of times you take it up to get into the corner of your way to exit. So I definitely present a sound for sure. And you know, every time we go back. I'm sure it's been a continue to change just because it's. Yeah. The pavement. It's not going to be as good as it was when it was it was so it's kind of a moving target a little bit. But you know, that's that's what we gotta try to sit out when we get there going to be challenging and before we let you go, Johnny. I had read somewhere that you're thinking about or planning to. I don't know which is more accurate try the snowball derby again this year is that right? Definitely kicking it around. So yeah, we just. I don't wanna devote a whole lot of attention to it until we get your homestead and getting that job done. So and there's always enough time to regroup dollars. You know, it's a big undertaking. Obviously, you know there for four or five days, and and you know, trying to get people to commit to. On that long. And all that that that all equation. So hopefully, we get to Miami the way we want to and we can focus on that pretty hard. Yeah. Then it'll just be all gravy from there. Right. Absolutely, Johnny listen. We appreciate your time. Congratulations on the on the big win at martinsville and good luck for the rest of these races on. No, you're looking forward to racing for that second championship at homestead.

Welcome back to NASCAR live coming up in a moment will preview this weekend's race at Texas Motor Speedway. But first let's go back in time for this week in NASCAR history. Nineteen Eighty-three is where we began Pat Benetton on the radio with love is a battlefield resident Ronald Reagan signed a Bill establishing Dr Martin Luther King's holiday on cable TV the Nashville network made its debut and NASCAR was racing at North Carolina Motor Speedway in rocky hand. Tearing the Bonnie meet Tim Richmond the line in the American. There around JV mcduffie. He'll be the only race traffic attend. We're Richmond smokes the tires off the corner, but he's not making up Brown calmly guide. The Budweiser Chevrolet in turnover.

The triple eight Texas by hundred bre NASCAR lie preview. Here's our Suzy Armstrong. Thank you, Mike with two tickets to the final four still up for grabs. The teams to Texas Motor Speedway this week for the AAA Texas five hundred April winner Kyle Busch likes his chances to capture a fourth victory in Fort Worth and advance straight to go in the final championship faceoff. That place was always been fast. And it's always kind of been one groups around the bottom. And and so far, it's kind of what we got with the repave, you know, obviously, you hope that with time and an age in the asphalt surface at it becomes better more racy. It's. It was a good place force before the repave in and now since the repave, I think it's been a pretty good place forces well to we've run well there we will near this spring. So hopefully, we can continue that sort of momentum there denied checkers at martinsville speedway. Martin tricks juniors all fired up and ready to nab his first TMS trophy on the fast one point five mile quad oval. It's been a really good track for us, and for me throughout my career in general just haven't been able to put it all together. The frustration part of it is part of racing. You know, it's just a lady luck. Sometimes you she doesn't shine on you. But I love racing. They're lug plans out there too great area and good fishing holes around that late to I like the head so low coming to Texas Boyer desperately needs a win to make the final four with only three top ten finishes in the last ten Texas clashes the championship hopeful remains skeptically optimistic. It's challenge, you know, an and within those challenges you got to be open minded about you've gotta be excited about that challenge. And and ready to do. Jacket it because you do definitely have to attack that. I mean, it's it's a it's a track. That's the grip levels through the roof until it's not very very tricky.
