"That's what he set up in the booth when he was doing the X feddy race. Yeah, yeah. I've got a funny story for you after we're off the air here. Remind me to tell you. Not related with Phoenix. Not for our listeners. It might get on the listener at some point, but this is off air for now. Wow, you got people throwing things at their audio devices now. They're like, no. What do you got, Toby? So besides Kevin Harvick, who do we got, that's pretty decent that we got to Kyle Busch has three wins, right? Yeah, Kyle Busch is good there, typically the Hendrick cars are pretty good there that ein car has been good there with Chase Elliott. He's not going to be there though, so maybe Josh Barry can sneak up there and surprise in his second start in the next gen car. Alex Bowman, that's his home track. He's good there. Yeah, Hamlin. I mean, there's lots of guys who've shown the ability to get it done here at Phoenix. So this is kind of a wide open thing, especially with the new package. We've got the new aerodynamic package. Where it's going to take away 30 to 40% of the down force. NASCAR says 30, I've heard Denny Hamlin say up to 40% down force will be removed. This is big. So we really don't know what we're going to see. But I do think with guys like Denny Hamlin, who were able to take care of their tires usually with a car that has less down force, they're going to be kind of slinging it out and burning those tires off. I think a Denny Hamlin could be a smart play this week. Logano has the most recent win there and he's got three in his back pocket two. Yeah. Yeah. It looks insane, by the way. Looking at a list of drivers with wins. It looks insane. You got two, three, 9,
William Byron wins at Las Vegas as Hendrick dominates
"William Byron hit the jackpot at Las Vegas Motor Speedway leading 176 out of 271 laps to take the win and lock himself in to NASCAR's playoffs later this year. Happy with getting the first one of the year it's been a while since we've won. It's been almost a year and it's nice to kind of just get back to what I feel like we're capable of. It was a teammate trifecta as barents teammate Kyle Larson finished second. I thought Kyle was really strong. He could stay close to me for a lot of the runs. The 24 pits I was just better than ours there at the end. So bummed, but all in all, we needed a good run today. You have second and all three stages and good points today. Followed by fellow Hendrick motor sports driver, Alex Bowman in third. I'm Jerry Jordan.

"Was the winner at NASCAR dot com for about 15 minutes. Maybe even three days. I have no clue. No, it was a long time after the checkered flag. I had texted you and I'm like, are they not sure what's going on over there? Yeah, I saw you, I saw you send it, but I was knee deep in post race stuff. And then right after that. Getting in the car and I was heading back. I don't play around. But I mean, even with the photo of Joey, yeah. Yeah, that's pretty funny. That's pretty funny. Yeah. So something weird there, I don't know, aliens crash landing or something. Ross Chastain at number 9, which is not unexpected. He runs, he runs well now. He's good. Anyone stage two, so get some stage points and a playoff point to go forward with. So not bad. Hats off to number 8, Ryan Blaney. I don't understand how he finished 8th with the way that car looked. I mean, man. Yeah, I got a pretty good viral post on Twitter about it because I took a picture of the car and was like, this car somehow finished 8th, they told him 500. I talked to him about it afterwards. And he was just he was happy that he somehow finished 8th. I was expecting him to be upset when I saw the car and that he wouldn't want to talk. But no, Ryan Blaney was very excited that he finished so well. I asked him if this was something that he just now does all of a sudden because if you remember back to Daytona last year, he had the wounded car that he nursed to a playoff birth. Like dirt Bristol last year the year before he had just destroyed car finished 8th. He said, hell no, I hope this isn't something I do all the time. But very happy to finish 8th for Ryan Blaney. Well, his face is more aerodynamic. So maybe that was it. That's probably it, yeah. Makes sense. Daniel Suarez at number 7. So you got him. Didn't he spin it one time too? He is the guy and he didn't just spin. He spun late and he's the guy who caused this entire thing to end up the way it ended up. Because we had a pretty good idea how this thing was supposed to end. And then Daniel Suarez went for a spin with two laps to go. He got to AJ almond dinger leading in the closing laps had a solid car and this week we heard he has lost his beloved cat and as a cat owner. I can sympathize. Anybody owns any kind of a pet of any kind. That's a sad deal. As far as the Cup race goes, like you said, lead in the closing laps, look like he had a really legit shot at winning this thing, got caught up in that fracas that was going on. Is that even a thing? He has a thing. I think it's ruckus. Ruckus of fracas of fracas. That's a new word here though. We'll take it. We're making up new stuff here, but he got caught up in that little mainland last lap, but still finished 6th, had a really good run, and I know this guy does not like Daytona or Talladega, but to get his full-time Cup Series campaign started off on the right foot with a 6th place finish. I think that's going to really bode well for him going forward. Alex Bowman notching his 65th Daytona 500 poll and he finishes 5th. He's had the poll for every day telling 500. You see what I did there? I love it. But you know, with everything that was going on, he had some amazing avoidance on that last lap crash, by the way, to get that 5th place finish. He doesn't have much luck at these places, but I think for him to finish 5th, I think he's got to feel pretty good about that. He's probably wondering, when are they going to run one of these where it's just single car? Right? Do well. Can we just hammer those big trophies to the guy who wins the poll? Right. Well, they kind of do. Christopher Chris busher and his teammate and team owner, Brad Keselowski ran up front most of the day, but Chris actually ended up with a top 5. Yeah, Keselowski went careening through the field there and one of those crashes. So he didn't quite get there, but Chris busher did get there. And he actually scored ten stage points during the day. Like you said, Keselowski was up there throughout the whole race as well. One stage more. So a good day overall for RFK and Chris buscher brings a home and get some at least one of those cars and a good finishing position. Christopher Bell with his best career finish for the 500. And you know, he was good. All right, it's long. He led like 20 laps. He was in the mix. You didn't really see much Toyota action happening throughout the day, but Christopher Bell was the just the common denominator up there towards the front for Toyota. The Fords, my gosh, I'm having I'm at a bar, I'm having pizza. I look up at the screen and it's like Fords for the top 9 at one point. See, this is how Carrie covers the Daytona 500. Is that a bar ordering pizzas? Meanwhile, I'm traveling like 8 hours at a time to get to the damn track. I'm out there all day long. Well, I traveled. I was just up in the mountains, enjoying some

Well, sandy, games may be over in the NFL, but the off season is just getting started Washington making it official yesterday with naming Eric the enemy to a two year deal as the teams do offensive coordinator and assistant head coach. Now, before the hiring, the D.C. sports huddle this past week talked about the former chiefs offensive coordinator. He was fresh off winning his second Super Bowl and Kansas City. Here's the beauty of his rob woodfork, who has fears that Vietnamese will suddenly get all past happy. I'm old enough to remember when Eric the enemy was a running back in the NFL. He came into the league as a coach as a running backs coach. So I can't imagine that a guy with that background is gonna come in and then try to chuck it all over the yard with what is essentially a rookie quarterback. And then by the way, I'm old enough to be a year older than Eric, Washington currently the 16th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Bowman, Larson give Hendrick sweep of front row at Daytona
"Time trials for the 2023 Daytona 500 are complete and Alex Bowman will lead the field to the green on Sunday as his teammate Kyle Larson paces on the outside of row one. As a driver, really all you can do is get the best launch you can, hit your shift points right. And try to run the best you can, not mess it up. Bowman's 181.696 mph lap puts him on the front row for a record of 6 straight times. I would love to be able to sit here and take a little bit of credit and I feel like my launch was okay and my shifts were good, but man, it's really on the team guys they get the job done. Morrison said timon and Rick Hendrick stresses the importance of winning the pole, but there's a bigger task at hand. Rick, it's really excited about that, but I know he'd be even more excited. One of the four of us somehow end up in victory lane on Sunday. With the front row now set, the remaining driver starting positions would be based on their finishes in the dual qualifying races.

"For a while. Yeah, no, that sounds really cool, so let's kick things off with how it went. This morning, as you're listening to this, we're recording on Wednesday, Daniel Suarez reached a multiyear extension with track house racing, which will keep him in the number 99 Chevrolet Camaro for years to come, which is good to see, right? Yeah, I mean, he got it done last year, so I can see that that's a no brainer. Yeah, and since the team opened, he was the first driver they signed, he really impressed in year one year two here. This past season really impressed. One is first kept series. Victory, it's noma and worked his way into the playoffs and finished top ten, the championship standing, so a really good season for him has been rewarded with a contract extension. And to that token, you look at the other side of things here on the next announcement, Alex Bowman, with Hendrick motor sports, also signed to a multiyear agreement. Financial as well will be returning for multiyears as well. Alex Bowman locked in at the number 48 team there. Really, really good stuff because a lot of people kind of rumored that if this season doesn't go, well, Alex Bowman might be on his way out because he just seems to be that fourth guy like you have the other three guys are a huge names and then there's Alex Bowman who wins a lot, but people just for a reason don't believe Alex Bowman out there. I don't know what the deal is, but here it is. He's locked in and I think he's got the ability now kind of race with reckless abandonment this year, trying to win some races. He has multiple win seasons. It's not like he's, you know, the guy has won more than pretty much almost anyone else besides like chase Elliott and Kyle Larson over the last four years. So the guy gets it done. That's tough competition when your teammates are those guys. Well, in the knock on them is that he only like he wins like he shows up these things wins late out of nowhere and then that's all it is. He just wins a few races a year and you don't hear anything else out in the rest of Europe. That's what this format is though. The whole point of it is out of that. Kevin Harvick had a career out of that. Yeah, that's the whole point. So I just find it funny when people complain about it when this is literally what the system has been put in place to reward only winning. So yeah, that's what it is. But yeah, Alex Bowman locked up for years to come. That's very interesting news. It's coming mid week here, like right before the 500. Yeah, yeah. And we've also, we're going to talk about entry lists and stuff later on. I think, but we had some shuffling on the Daytona truck series entry list this week. Okay, let's shuffle them up. We had Johnny solder who we know listens to this here show. He does. In a shop. Yeah, he was entered in the number 46 G two G racing entry for Daytona. He ran in with that team last year at Daytona. The less than favorable results, but he was lined up to do it again this year. They have now replaced him with norm benning on the entry list in that 46 car. So no real reason given by the team yet. We don't really know the full backstory on that. But we'll eventually get it, but G two G racing has put norm benning and the number 46 Toyota tundra for Daytona. Guess the good news is Johnny now has a little more time to listen to us. That's true, and he's over there at news murder. Running some local short track stuff, which is another reason why it was really shocking to see him off this entry list. He's already down there. So something has happened. I don't know what, but Johnny solder will not be around the truck series race Daytona. Even though he had a locked in spot too, that's the other thing. The team was locked into the race by virtue of his past champion's provisional, and now they don't have that luxury. So the question now becomes what happened and why did it happen? And what happens next? That's bizarre. That's where we're at. Very weird. All right, well, whatever. Tony Stewart is going full-time racing? Yet did you see this? He's going to be going like drag racing, full-time. Top alcohol drag racing with Mick Phillips racing. This is just a wait, you drink alcohol while you're racing, that doesn't seem wise. I don't think that's how it works. I think it's that they use alcoholic fuel. To

Hendrick Motorsports Nears Petty Win Record After 1-2-3-4 Result
"Hendrick motorsports the first one two three four finish for hendrick in its team history. Only the fourth time in cup history. That's been done in the first and the cup series since rosh benway racing team. You have some knowledge of two thousand five at the season finale at homestead miami speedway so just to give you a little context henrik has only been a four car team since two thousand and four so i one two three four finishing essentially seventeen years. I that they've been able to do that but you know what's your first reaction to that. When you hear the hendrick motorsports for the first time ever in what thirty. Seven years of history has a one two three four finish. Well i think about is two years ago when we were talking about. What's wrong with hendrick right. And we we. We had this expectation level of hendrik. That's pretty high. We expect to see them contending for championships winning the lottery to me to me. In the era that i raced in hendrick was the most dominant team out there and that faded faded over time and it was. They didn't jump right back into it. They had to work themselves back into it. And now here they are and they also invested you. Think about what they did. They invested in a lot of youth right so took brought a lot of young drivers and that has cultivated into a very young team with a lot of winners on it heading into right direction. This is the opposite of what we were talking about. Two years ago. I think hendrick motorsports is repositioning themselves to be dominant force. They won the championship last year. We chase elliott now chase elliott. That hasn't wanna raise this year and alex bowman's want to i know chase elliott fans. Think well that's not good but it is good if the guy that won championship you last year is the guy. That's not winning this year and everybody else has stepped it up. That's a good thing. Now they've chase elliott rezoning twentieth every weekend. That what that's not chase elliott's running okay. He's not been winning expecting to do. But but that's a good problem for a team to have. It's almost impossible to have all four clicking. You know what i mean. It's really really difficult. But i just i just i think a reversal of where we were two years ago. That's the first thing that pops in my brain

Expect retaliation probably It's fun to make fun of matt. you know. He drives for that other manufacturer. But he's still just went and bought a another corvette so We know he's at least got good taste and yeah he's he he just bought another is the are one. But you know. I saw the other day. And you know how corvettes have four taillights he. He had somebody take the tail lights out to like put tent on them. And like put different spoiler on the car. And they didn't tighten the bolts out one of the bolts up and one of the tail lights fell out going down the road. So that's embarrassment. He's got good taste in cars but yeah it's a little bit nursing. What what are you driving personally. No one of those. Yeah so he's actually copying me. He's got the same cars me now. He's he was going to buy the same wheels that i had on my car so i just sold him my wheels about something different. So we weren't matching but yeah you should go ask him about it because it's literally he's copying me. That's that's definitely interesting. Go out there and race. Yeah mine still going to be mine. Still gonna be faster though. So i mean it's obviously got the better driver so it's all driver of course nothing under the hood for sure now. Last time we spoke you were still working out the intricacies of assigned seating at movie theaters. Is there anything else technology wiser in two thousand twenty. That's baffling you I don't think there's been anything yet. I'm sure. I'm sure there will be that movie. Theater incident was largely embarrassing. Pretty sure i'm never going on a date ever again. After that that was that was a struggle But yeah nothing yet. I feel like something will definitely pop up and confuse the heck out of me and all embarrassed myself with it but nothing yet. Truth be told seventeen years. I've been doing this. This is the first time using my phone for notes. I used to use paper mainly because it was lighter. So i'm still getting into the tech stuff too. Yeah yeah there you go. I mean yeah. It's forever changing. Who would think that you have assigned seats at a movie theater. That there's twelve people and it just didn't make any sense. If i were just gone gone up one more row. Adam and just fine definitely definitely definitely all right so you got a bunch of sponsorships onboard this year. How do you keep track of them. All highest kelsey. What's on the car this week Yeah figure out what shirts to bring. And and i mean it's it's written on my chest on the firesuits so i guess i could just look down and figure it out but no it's it's been really cool to have some new partners on board obviously We have this week and chevy goods dot com and everybody. That's going to be out for the rest of the year. Really excited about all that so It'll be neat. I think the black and gold car looks really cool so looking forward to seeing that on the race track. Lamar looks good to its new paint scheme for them so it only looks a little bit similar to the valvoline paint scheme. Just a little bit. But but that's all right. That's that's that's a good luck to you once you're inside it kind of looks the same right. Yeah yeah you can't see it from From where i sit. So i'm here for it. Do you ever bring the wrong stuff to the track. Not recently so when i was driving for junior motorsports We had a couple of different sponsors on the car throughout the year. We went somewhere in. Dave ellen's was the crew chief and really all the sponsors were the same color scheme but he wore the wrong shirt like the race day shirt. He warned completely wrong. One week kelsey did my pr over there. as well. and i thought she was gonna kill him so It was it was a good day for sure with sports. Exploding ni- racing and that's something that you're interested in and doing. Yeah william started his own team starts. I started calling him. Mr be since he's got this big time. I racing team but I wanna talk to him next time. I'm gonna ask him well. How does that work. I mean nothing physical yeah he. He's spent some money on it so I don't know. That's i keep myself really busy with other things and i'm kinda maxed out at the moment. I think it's really neat. I play on. Ira seeing a little bit more to to play around and then taking that super seriously. Is it something you see yourself doing. After nascar maybe retiring you're eighty years old. You're sitting in your living room and you're still raising all that's gonna be so different when i'm eighty years old. Can you imagine what sim racing is going to become at that point Maybe i don't know all probably be at a dirt track somewhere though

We got to Chevy's two toyotas. Fords right that were at. I see in three three chevys. Sorry. Three Chevy Chevy three forwards and two Toyotas. That's pretty good. especially when you consider how few Toyotas are in the field. That's that's par for the course you're only gonNA get two of them in there but that's that's a pretty impressive field of drivers for this. Finally, all right Kansas speedway opened in two thousand and one it's bad fast on the list of top ten fastest tracks, which is a weird list. Drivers, of course, have to dodge rows and rows of corn and wheat growing right there on the racetrack in between the workers and the cracks. would. That might not be true.

It is a lot different in simulation then real life.
