"Junior and Kelly thinking about joining the cut series. I mean, I think Corey has a chance at running better in the 48 car than Alex Bowman. That's my hot take, but I just want to know what y'all think about Corey earning a better cup ride. I mean, it would make a lot of sense, Jay, to me, like I would think that especially after the performance he turned in at Atlanta, he's proven himself to be a really good super speedway racer, but I think going back to Burton's point earlier about the versatility that teams look for for drivers and Kyle Petty talked about this on the NASCAR NBC podcast this week. I think that's where the jury is still out with Cory. And maybe always will be out until he gets in a top high quality ride where he can show he can run because all he's run for as he said after Atlanta was teams that have typically run outside the top 30 in points. And so we don't really know how we can do it the other tracks on the schedule. So I think that's what we need to see, but I don't know if we're going to get to see that with Cory before he gets a chance with another team. And I think it'll be does a team like Richard Childress racing want to take that leap of faith and put him in their car. And Nate, that's a really good point. And I think I can tell you that Corey has definitely his name has come up in different discussions through teams throughout the sport. I think at times, especially in the last couple of years. And I think one of the things that Corey did this really interesting is he made a choice, you know, he has had the ability and maybe the opportunity to go and possibly do a partial season in Xfinity or maybe in trucks, have those chances to be and maybe winning equipment, but he made a choice and has told me before, you know, he believed being in the Cup Series was the place to be getting cup experience to put himself in the conversation for a ride like the 8. So that is absolutely been his plan. I think he will be in those discussions as you allude to Nate. I think it's important for him to go show that speed at road courses and all the different types of tracks, but I think he definitely is in those conversations and this is the choice he made in his decision in putting himself in the Cup Series and not always the best equipment but being in the Cup Series and hoping that this strategy pans out for him. So the other option is that spar gets more funding. That is true. Great point. Great point. Bigger, and he could stay as far. They like him there. The one thing that listen, I'm bullish on Corey the joy, been that way for a long time. The problem, Corey has, and every driver has this, is that until you show you can win at this level, no one really knows. Well, that's what's hard for all drivers. It's just like you mentioned the Xfinity series. So going into this weekend, well, who's one of the favorites? Well, we're going to look at ty Gibbs as one of the fairs. Why? Because he's in strong equipment. We know what he can do, at least we think we know we can do. Corolla joy has not been in that type of equipment throughout his career. Like you mentioned. So you have to look at finer points with Corey Lajoie. It may be a little bit of a harder sell if you're comparing it Corey Lajoie and the Thai Gibbs. And that's not fair to Corey, but that's a reality. And he I think he understands that with what he was talking about to you Nate after the race. And that's the challenge that he faces. Well, we had a great conversation about the Cup race with William Byron's crew chief Rudy fugle. We got an Xfinity race this weekend. That series is on fire. A lot of drivers mad at each other. People ready to get it. And also those guys are trying to earn their way into the positions we've all been talking about. So there's a lot of drivers that believe that they can be the next Jimmy Johnson. They can be the next Tyler Reddick. I'm the guy that you need and they're all trying to prove that and we get to watch that on Saturday and the Xfinity race one of my favorite racetracks enjoy going there, great attitude. Sometimes I like it. Great people join us on Sunday. USA, remember USA this weekend. All your NASCAR action.

"In time to hear the announcement yesterday. Slept all the way through victory lane. But hey, this is a caller about this is a show about collars. Let's get right to it. Tony, you're on. I guess. First time caller. My question is, I hadn't heard. I didn't know I missed the very beginning of the show. Why did childress not sign him to a multiyear deal? He signed to a one year deal. I was surprised no one had announced that what role America. I'm like, why did he not sign to a multiyear deal? No one was out of prospecting he was. He didn't think Daniel was going to slip up there and get him or something. Well, Tony, I'll say this is what Richard Childress racing did was pick up the one year option on the contract. So it was essentially a three year contract. This will be the third year next year for Tyler Redick and they picked up the contract, the option, and actually Richard Childress told myself in the athletic back in March, that that's what they were going to do. So they known since the spring that Tyler was going to be there through 2023. Now, Jeff, you can correct me if I'm wrong, but typically, again, this is one of the things that makes Denny Hamlin's move 23 11s move surprising his teams aren't always working a year and a half ahead of time and typically you wouldn't expect a team to be working on a contract extension through 2024. I think it's a good question, Tom. I think the better question is this Dustin said he signed a three year deal with a one year option. So this is the third year they picked up the 23. I think the better question though, Jeff and Parker might be why was Tyler Reddick allowed to be talking to other teams before. Next season. Well, a contract negotiation requires two parties. So not always when you sign a driver to zone or get to write it exactly the way he wants it. And the driver doesn't get to write it exactly the way he wants it. So you negotiate those things. And then everybody always think the most important part about contracts is the money. It's actually not. It's all those little details that allow you when you can talk. When you can have conversations, all those types of things. And clearly, he was we haven't heard anything otherwise. He was in his right to be talking to other teams in advance of next year. And I think one other really important part to that, guys, as you alluded to, Jeff is, you know, these are not templated contracts that come from NASCAR, right? These are the race teams and the drivers and they have their individual types of contracts and the lawyers they work with and they can be created in any way they want and sometimes have creative differences that are entirely different team to team. So it's very much an open market in that sense. And so there's no real templated form to the simple to a contract as much as there is a lot of room for creativity and a lot of room for things to be different. And so it's really hard for us on the outside to really know the particulars there. But as you alluded to, considering that no one's really brought that up, it seems like they had the ability to talk to our teams built in or just have that allowed in the way it was created. That's a great point, Parker, this is not the NFL. It's not MBA. We have no idea what their contract are, the driver, and the owner negotiate, NASCAR has nothing to do with it. There are no normal contracts, this driver, owner, everyone looks completely different. That's a great point. All right, Jay, you're on. What's up, guys? Love the show. First time caller. So I got a question about Corey Lajoie. Do you think he has a shot at a better cup ride? You know, with a generation of drivers about to retire or close to it. So 23 XI Tyler Reddick moved, Dale junior and Kelly thinking about joining the cut series. I mean, I think Corey has a chance at running better in the 48 car than Alex Bowman. That's my hot take,

"To be at for pace and whatnot, but that overall lap time that we run because of track grip and different reasons to eat in the track is what will determine what gear if we get down to third. So that's two downshifts every corner. Two upshifts on every straight away. That's a lot of times to make a mistake, you know? And a lot of that, the hard part of that is like doing some of that under those braking zones over the bumps and the cars out of control and it makes you miss the corner and you see people doing that and qualifying and whatnot when they're pushing really hard. But it also makes it a lot harder to pass too. Guys that are struggling can use that downshift is a little bit of a handicap. It helps rotate the car, you have more RPM, so it turns on the throttle that it turns on the downshift. So that's some of the short track where it's harder to pass at times, you're better in a guy clearly, but that guy is learned how to make his car better. So it's a tool for the driver when a struggle and to be able to downshift. So definitely expect a shift every single corner every lap in some laps too. That's why I love this show because the guy like Rudy fugle can come in here and break down what it takes to win New Hampshire. And I mean, seriously, like that's those things are how you win it. And on that topic, Rudy, the breaking into turn three is one of the most challenging breaking zones on an oval in all a race. With this car, are you going to is the breaking going to be able to go past that? Past that bump into three? Are you going to be right on top of it bumping? Right on top of that bump when you break. Sorry, bye. Stand here. Can we hit a bump on your desk real quick? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Sorry about that. But yeah, so I think that's what's going to be really an interesting for qualifying. So I think in practice, you're going to be able to modulate that brake pressure and just roll a little bit more speed or do some different things. And manage that bump and get a good feel for it and that's other race will go. Qualifying is what I'm really super interested in is because that's when you're going to want to pick up that, but in the half second, whatever it is to go faster and as from a driver's standpoint, the first thought is, I'm just going to get in harder and that's where I think that'll be the biggest thing to watch in qualifying both corners but turn three especially is watching how that works out and who makes that mistake because we've kind of talked about we're blow tires of different tracks and you guys have heard about internal bump stops in the shocks and stuff like that. Well, we're running so close to those or you're on them and then you hit the brakes just a little bit harder and the next thing you know, you excite the car and it bounces like crazy and you're up a group and then I guess once you get in practice and the race, most of that stuff will become second nature and the driver is supposed to handle it. But qualifying, you're gonna see a lot of guys, I think missed that or overstep it and should be interesting. And you mentioned qualifying how important it is because often track position is really important. We've seen that be really important some of these tracks of this car. So talk to me about what have you guys been working on for passing here at New Hampshire. I know you've probably spent some time the same with William and looked at different things and what you've learned maybe when you look back at gateway and some of these other tracks like this where you've said, okay, this is what we really need to be focused on if we are further back in the pack as how we're going to pass. What is that some of the things that stick out to you? Yeah, it always spent a lot of time this week. It's a good point. On how to identify what parts of the track make the most lap time. So where are the fast cars all are fast? You know, we break the track down in a segment and say, hey, entry, early entry, middle, wherever these parts of the corner make it lap time. All the fast cars that are making laps make it here. And then we also have some analysis on the most passes are made in this part of the corner. So you kind of know like, okay, to go fast, I need to be good here. And to make passes, I need to be good here. Because sometimes they're in different spots. So one thing sets up the other. So we spent some time talking about that showing that. Making sure we have focused on it. So when we go to the sim, we can we can say, okay, we have, we can give up this part of the corner a little bit, to gain gain in other parts of the corner, you know? And then qualifying is big, a lot of getting that pit stop, you know? So with the pit stops being so competitive, unfit road, being faster. The slow stops to the fast stops are tighter. And getting in the stall, the correct way, all in leaving the stall is huge, you know? So the easiest way to pass 40 years ago and going to be 40 years from now is on pit road, you know? So that's where you kind of really got to do a better job qualifying. We've done a poor job at that lately. And that's a main focus for us this week. Well, Rudy, by the way, get your fuel mileage tuned in as well, because that's really pretty for the debt New Hampshire. Man, we really appreciate your candor and honesty kind of pulling the curtain back a little bit because that was an incredible amount of information. Thank you so much for joining us. Yeah, no problem. Thanks guys, sorry for the phone falling there, but always always going to be on here. Our viewers are used to those things on this show. So we appreciate it. That was a fascinating conversation. Stevie always say, when the guy comes out and gives you that much information about you. Even I understand it. So great stuff. Just awesome. But when we come back, we're going to, we're going to get some more callers, and we're going to have some Xfinity talk. Good Xfinity brace last week at a portal in this coming week.

"And when the world's best drivers push it to the limit, anything can. Happen. The race to the NASCAR playoffs on NBC, USA and peacock. Well playoff leaderboard after Atlanta going to New Hampshire this weekend, chase Elliott, and they're leading it, but William Byron sitting in third 13 playoffs. I think it was fascinating about this playoff leaderboard and there's no one with a massive advantage like we've seen in the beginning of this playoffs. And that makes every race that much more important. So this weekend we go to New Hampshire. We know how difficult that racetrack is. And we're lucky to have one of the best crew chief in the series. William byers crew chief for rigid fuel. What's up, man? Hey guys. I appreciate you having me on. So it's been a while. It's always fun joining you. Thanks for joining us. Let's get right after, man. What about New Hampshire? What's the most challenging part about it and what are your chances this weekend? Yeah, no, I really like New Hampshire. It's got a lot of things balled up into one. You know, it takes a lot of mechanical grip. You got to be good over the brakes and then you got to have good shock package and spring package to get over the bumps, especially in the turn three. It's one of the more challenging breaking parts in all of NASCAR. So and then you're going to flat corner, which it's hard to get it turned and go in the other way. But the power down. So a lot of challenges that if you get the car right, you can be pretty good and stand out. So that's what you enjoy as a crew chief is taking that challenge and trying to stand out. So this car, especially, seems to, you know, it's really hard to get a handle on the flat tracks. You know, and get a feel for it. But we've had enough of them this year that we've learned on. And then feel really good at going into this weekend. Rudy, mixed results in Atlanta Motor Speedway for Hendrick motor sports. Of course, you get the win with Chase Elliott, but I know for your team, it didn't go the way you wanted. And really since the winds that land and Martins of earlier this year, you guys have run well, but the results don't really indicate it. When I asked William Byron about that before Atlanta, and he seemed like, hey, we're in good spirits. We know it's just a matter of deluxe turning. What are you telling the team right now? And just sort of feel the same way that if you just get a little bit of luck, the timing works out a bit better. You guys are going to start reeling off top 5s and maybe some wins again. Yeah, no, it's been a tough stretch to keep everybody motivated and going and working hard. But we have great people here. So having speed is super important. We've come back from the break. And just had some terrible luck, but we've shown speed during those races passed a lot of cars, ran up front, led a lot of Atlanta. And then in this I can go through every single race and tell you what went wrong, but still can everybody else. So it's all about results. We all know that. So, but from a team aspect and from a building aspect and making sure you're ready for the playoffs, it's about what makes the cars go fast. What makes the right adjustments during the race? Are you building the right team

"Friday, one Saturday before qualifying. So it's going to be tricky, but I think everybody's just so excited to be going back this event is one of the favorites among teams amongst drivers among fans. When I was kind of nervous after two years off the schedule, was it going to be sort of an out of sight out of mind and really nobody was going to come back to this version of the race, but I've been talking to the promoters talking to people around town. This race is going to be huge. Ticket sales are big, sweet sales are big. Everybody's excited to be back to be out to be doing stuff and IndyCar is some fun stuff to do. So I think it's going to be a heck of a weekend. I can't wait to get there. Hey, James, I want to ask you about one element for this weekend's race at Toronto. And certainly, it's a tight course so passing can be difficult. And one of the things we often hear about with some IndyCar race, especially at street core races, and it's maybe something we'll be discussing about NASCAR in the future is about street course is just the in lap and out lap. And from a driver's perspective of getting that getting that fast lap on those tires when they're worn coming into pit road and then taking off on these tires that are cold, as a writer, I don't know, since I'm not in the seat, I can't appreciate the talent or the challenge that a driver goes through to do that. Can you explain a little bit of that as I watch it on Sunday, what I'm seeing and what kind of a test of skill that is. Well, I mean, we talk about the pit cycles all the time on the broadcast. You know, those in and out laps to undercuts the over cuts. And the out lap is really one of the most challenging parts. Unlike Formula One, we don't have tire warmers, so the tires are cold. The cars are full of fuel, the ride heights are a bit low. It's difficult on any circuit, but you go to like a Sam Mid Ohio like last week. If you get things wrong a little bit, you might drop a wheel in the dirt, something like that. Around Toronto, there's no room for air. It's all concrete walls and tire barriers. So you're not allowed to drop a tire and the other thing that makes it so challenging is I think more than any other street circuit even that we go to, there are so many different surfaces in Toronto. There's pavement patches, concrete patches, cement patches, sometimes all three in the same corner. And all three of those have a different level of grip, both from the tires are hot and more importantly when the tires are cold. So these drivers that have that experience coming out of the pits at a place like Toronto knowing where those danger zones are, where those problem areas can be, I do think have the advantage, but it's like trying to drive a car on ice as fast as possible with absolutely zero room for air. It's a huge challenge. Yeah, and I'll follow all those challenges on peacock this weekend. Practice qualifying and the race Sunday 3 p.m. eastern live on peacock. So definitely check that out. James Hinchcliffe, going to be a lot to talk about this weekend. Thanks for joining us. We'll look forward to what you have to say on peacock this weekend as well. When we come back on NASCAR America motor mouse, we've got another guest. We've got Rudy fugle. Kerchief through William Byron will be joining us. There he is.

"On in lime rock. On Saturday world superbike Sunday on CNBC from Great Britain, monster jam Seattle, Saturday CNBC. Of course, we've got cup and expanding from New Hampshire on USA Saturday and Sunday and on Sunday 3 p.m. eastern on peacock. It's the NTT IndyCar Series from the streets of Toronto for the first time in three years. And I think we thought that was going to be the big story going into IndyCar in Toronto, but actually there's been some other big news and joining us now to discuss that is James Hinchcliffe and we were just joking Hinch that no one knows more about driver contracts and how sticky they can get than you. And certainly got an interesting situation right now where we have the defending series champion Alex below being claimed by two teams for next year with Ganassi and McLaren both saying they have them signed for 2023. Give us your take. I mean, nice to be wanted. I guess, right? It's certainly better than trying to convince a team to keep you. So, I mean, in some ways, you can't feel too bad for Alex below, but at the same time, man, I have not seen anything quite like this. When you look at everything that came out yesterday between the press release from, the press release from McLaren, the tweets themselves from Alex pillow, everything seems very carefully crafted, very carefully worded. There's been a lot of lawyers, I think, consulting both sides of this. They both knew this was coming. The entire motor sports world was shocked by this, but there was at least three people that I think knew something was coming tomorrow. I don't know how this one plays out. Historically speaking, you've got to think that you can ask your racing does have the legal advantage here, but having absolutely no idea what any of these contracts say that's pure speculation, but man, it's definitely an interesting situation. And I don't know who I put my money on at this point. And James, you mentioned something. This has been really public, which is unusual in racing, I think in a lot of respects when we talk about contract negotiations and this sort of just sort of discussion happening. It's normally behind closed doors because unlike other sports, we're not really, you know, we don't have any obligation to put it out there. There's no sanction by that sort of sets the rules on this sort of thing. We as drivers or general contractors. So that's what I find fascinating is that there is no intermediary here. This is going to come between these two teams to figure this out themselves in a lot of ways. Yeah, ultimately, I mean, it's a fun thing to toss around. Hey, there could be lawsuits here. There could be courts involved, whatever, whatever, but I think what's important to remember is a lot of these racing contracts. They deal in arbitration. It's not going to a jury trial or anything like that. You're going to have potentially a panel of one to maybe three lawyers, judges, whatever that you have to maybe they know nothing about motor sports. You got to convince them that you're right or the other side is wrong. And that's a very difficult thing to do. So most of these things partner to your point, they get settled on the side. I don't know if what Chip Ganassi racing was doing was a big flex to make sure they get a big number out of McLaren for them to take below. I don't know if they're really going to hang on to them. Again, I've not seen anything quite like this. It's very unique. But at the end of the day, I think I've just got to say, I do genuinely feel bad for Alex below because this is supposed to be a moment where he's happy about announcing a new team, a new direction, a new part of his career. And it's embroiled in all this drama, all the legalities of it. Obviously there's going to be some ugliness back and forth with his team who guys, he's still fighting it for a championship with. They still have 7 races to go together. This could make Toronto a bit of a difficult situation for me. He already hasn't been to the racetrack. Now he's got this distraction off the track. It's going to be interesting to see how this affects not just pillow, but the entire CGI organization. It's fascinating to me that it went public. Yeah. It's fascinating to me that there wasn't a, hey, don't do that. You know what I mean? It's just amazing that lawyers didn't get in somehow and other how it got here is really interesting. I hope one day we will really understand what really happened because it's clearly legal different opinions about what the contract says. And it's going to be not fun for Alex and off and for all those guys, but fascinating for all of us to watch. But back to the racing. So been away from Toronto for a few years. What do you expect there this weekend? I mean, I think you have to expect the unexpected. Honestly, nobody's raced there with the arrow screen. I did the math earlier 12 of the 25 drivers going have never raced an IndyCar at Toronto. Most of them haven't even been around the track in any car at all in three of those drivers in the top 7 in points. So it's definitely a weekend that's going to lend a little bit of favor to the drivers that have that experience there. People like Simon page note, Josef Newgarden Scott Dixon Alex Rossi. They've run there. They've won there they've competed well there. It's still a reduced format. Only the one practice on

"Say, all right. Man, this is not good. But then 18 months from now have put yourself in a position that it works. And that's what I'm saying that Richard has had a made up history of doing. And don't count him out. It's a challenge. There's no questions to challenge. There's no question it's a loss. I'm not minimizing that, but don't minimize the resilience of Richard Childress. Don't underestimate it. Can he get a veteran though? I mean, because normally he's bringing somebody along, you know, like a Tyler Reddick. He moves him up from Xfinity to cup after win the Xfinity championship. Does he have to go get a veteran or can he bring up an Austin Hill or a Sheldon Creed like that? So when I say that there's opportunities, there is so much interest in our sport right now. And that means that there's interest from sponsors as interest from ownership. There's interest in drivers as interested a lot. And the more interest there is, there's more opportunities. And so all I'm saying is sometimes a major thing like this shakes the trees and forces you to do some things that you wouldn't have done otherwise. And we don't know what's going to happen. I'm not sitting here today. I have zero idea. What's going to happen? I suspect Richard Childress doesn't either. But I will tell you this. I left Richard Childress. I left Jack Roush racing. Carl Weber took my seat. They immediately started winning. A year later, we were part of a group that turned RCR around. And we all started winning. And we put we put all of our drivers into playoffs for multiple years, multiple years. We both won. RCR one, as well as rauch one. So there is an opportunity here if you find a way to make it work. So let me ask you this. And this is even something maybe Parker can chime in from a driver's perspective. You basically have to go tell your team now, hey, you're not good enough for me, or I'm leaving. So how does the team accept that how do you work through that as everybody just accept that's business and move on and continue to have success or try to build upon success as they've had this year or how do you prevent this from kind of breaking some cracks in a team? So listen, it's awkward. It's going to be awkward. It's going to be difficult. It's going to be stressful. It's going to be, it's going to test them all. It's going to test them all. They shouldn't hide behind that. But at the end of the day, if you want to be in this sport, you better be the best tire changer you can be. You better be the best car chief you can be. You better be the best driver you can be. You better be the best shock specialist you can be. No matter what the situation is, if they all focus on that, the worst say in his sport is there's no I in team. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. If everybody does their job, that makes the team. So the best team is made of a bunch of eyes. All people doing their job to make the team. It drives me nuts. There's no IN team. It's a bunch of eyes and team. I mean, that's what it is. So Richard's got to be the leader and rally those guys and remind them that for us to get where we need to be. We recruiting. We're recruiting the next driver. We're recruiting the next guy. We're recruiting that guy. If this car goes and beats that car, we're going to have a better driver entire ready. That's what he's got to be selling. It's a hard thing to do, but that's what he's got to be doing. That sounds like some Kyle Petty thinking to me a little bit. But I don't disagree. I don't disagree. I would also say, you know, there is, I think, when you look at the length of time between now and when he'll be going to 23 11, I'm sure there's some questions as to who he's working with, whether it's on the crew chief side or engineers, what their contract situation is and maybe some people that he's built relationships with that maybe he wants to continue the future. So it doesn't always mean just because he's announced his bit, it doesn't mean there might be others that he's worked with a long time or in any of these situations that you try to maybe say, hey, how can we line up in the next place as well? So I think it's also, you know, you mentioned Richard and the organization. I think it falls on Austin Dillon, too. As his organization, as it is, Richard Childress says, it's his grandpa, it's his family's business. He needs to go out there and continue to show that this is a championship caliber race team that they build playoff caliber race cars that he can go content for championship because that's going to make it a more attractive place to all those things you mentioned Jeff, whether it's sponsors, other drivers out there or interested parties that are looking at to get into the sport and sub capacity. I think all those things matter. So this falls on everyone who has some part or invested interest in RCR to go out there and put the best foot forward to saying, yes, this is a blow, but we have to do what we've been doing and continue to try and build up and use this time that we've had a guy like that to show why we can get another one or get other interested people involved in the organization. Yeah, definitely crazy day in NASCAR silly season news.

"Questions about how to be successful in NASCAR. He went to homestead though, put on that incredible performance and from that moment onward, it became, you know, Tyler Redick, how do I, what else can I do, right? And then it just goes on to become a dominant force in Xfinity. Does it again for a second year at a different team? And from there it was tyreek, you know, what can he not do, right? And I think that's one of the things that has been amazing for me watching Tyler and his session and how he's gotten better. You mentioned him being good at all those different track types, Jeff, but it's been amazing for me to see how quickly he's able to go from a place where he feels like maybe a road course he's not that good to be one of the best there is right now at doing that. So it's just like one of the most amazing things and that's what I think really sticks out to someone like a Denny Hamlin who's driving against him, right? Like that's a unique thing too to get hired by someone you're racing against, right? Like that person we always talk about race car drivers, getting the respect of our peers, right? That's something that matters to us at times. It's very cool when other race car drivers respect what you do in the race car. But the ultimate form of respect is then to then come up to you and say, hey, I actually want to pay you to drive my race car. Like that is just an incredible thing. And I mean, I think that alone is an amazing mark of his talent and his ability, let alone what we've seen in the past and what Denny thinks he has to offer in the future. Yeah, the compliment flows a little better with a paycheck, right? Jeff Gordon picking Jimmy Johnson. Johnson wasn't winning. That's the guy. And that's what Parker's talking about. When you're racing with somebody, you know, if they can do it or not. And recognize in that, anybody can look and pick a winner and say, that guy can win. I want him to drive. The people that can see the talent, looking beyond results. Those are the best in any sport at draft picks, at free agency, they're the ones that make winning races. Denny Hamlin knows a winning group real quick, just off that Jeff just one thing. You've mentioned seeing the talent. I think that's one thing fans need to understand. It's not just results. Like when we talk about seeing what he's doing, it's not the results. It's watching the little things he does in the race car. Whether it's certain race corners on the road courses breaking, it's running the wall, it's being facet short tracks and taking care of the car in being able to hang out in the right rear at the larger 1.5 mile tracks. Those are the things that add up that we see as racers that stick out to us to say, okay, that person is doing something unique. They're finding something special right there that not everyone finds. I think that's a really important part too. Definitely not visible to the naked eye of two of the panelists on today's program and for probably a lot of those who are calling us here on 8 four four NASCAR NBC. This is a call in show NASCAR American motor mouse and we'll start with our first call from NASCAR. NASCAR will welcome to the program. What you got? Hey, this is a time when I wish I could be setting at the desk with you instead of the caller because there's a lot to unpack here. Trust me. I mean, Jeff, I really, I don't know Richard, obviously as you do. And I believe you, when you say that, hey, he's going to land on his feet and this and that. But this, we see Brad trying to turn around Ralph. We see, but I just feel that this hurts the team. I mean, he had to obviously sign him when he won back to back or he would have definitely went somewhere else. But the fact that not keeping them, I just hate to see this for the teams of routes and children. And you say to bounce back, but what does this really do for vegetarians knowing, okay, yeah, we're going to give them, they're going to compete. They're going to go at it, but I still think that this hurts not being able to keep the talk like Reddit guess. There's a lot of talk coming up. I think he'll be true to either Sheldon or often, and their development in that 8 car coming feature, but I just kind of, I think this hurts him a little bit more than people are saying. And that's just how I feel, but this is a lot to unpack here. Well, so initially I agree with you. I mean, you can't lose a guy that I just said as a franchise driver. And not hurt you. But my point is that it doesn't have to. There is a way. If not, why own a singing? If you don't think you can figure it out, then why on a team? And if you don't as a driver feel like, okay, I just had a bad situation. I can turn it into something good. Don't be a driver. Like there's challenges in business. There's challenges in sports. And you got to find a way to

"Especially 2019, Tyler Reddick goes to Xfinity as a title contender at Homestead Miami Speedway and beats what was then the big three in Xfinity Cole Custer, Jace Brisco, CRISPR bell, and that was a big moment in his career. For me, it was huge. I mean, he went, you know, he was not the guy that I was thinking would do this. On that particular day, I was pretty convinced that there was no way he would end the race with the car in one piece. And he not only beat them, he destroyed them. And you talked about it. The big three, and all three of those guys are in cup racing today. And on one of our more difficult racetracks, he did it. That really woke me up to Tyler Reddick and his ability, my biggest concern for real prior to that was, can he connect all the dots and put the whole race together? There's a lot of fast race car drivers. There's very few that can go fast and do it for 405 hundred miles. In that case, an Xfinity race shorter, but he was able to do it. The other thing that I think we can not pay attention to is that when Denny Hamlin was talking about how good Tyler Redick is, it's everywhere. He's a good plight razor. He's like a road course racer. He's a good short track racer. He's good at mount halves. And that's really important. Because what's the schedule going to be four years from now? Who knows? There's no telling. And so if you're looking to hire a young driver, you better have a guy that has proven over a period of time that he can run everywhere. I'm talking about a franchise guy. That guy, you can't have a weakness. Now, you're not going to be the best at everything, you got to continually be honing your craft. But it's easy to say, hey, we've got a lot of real course racing. Do we know that's what it's going to be 5 years from now? I mean, this schedule is never been this in the modern era has never been this flexible. He's also shown he can get better as a special road courses. So as a schedule changes, it evolves. Here's a guy you feel confident that can raise his game and match what the schedule demands. He was not a very good road racer, and he became one. Yes. And listen, I've never this is an exciting time in the sport. You got owners investing. Parker made a great point. This is how it used to be. When I was the one little time I was a hunk of modernity on the free agent market, no one said, hey, you got money? You got a sponsor? That wasn't the question. The question was, can you come and drive this damn thing? As hard as you can drive it and win races? Yeah, I can do that. You're hard. That was the deal. There was never a conversation about can you bring money? And that's where we're getting. And that's a great thing. And I know Parker, you can relate to that. I know you have some thoughts on that. I love that. That's my truck team right now. That's all I've ever asked me, which is greater than very happy with them. But no, I think, you know, just looking back, you mentioned him getting bet on road courses. There's no doubt that that occurred because, you know, just looking back at last year in the Cup Series, he was one of his prerogatives, was focusing on getting better road course racing and he did that and now got his first win on a road course, but I go all the way back to that 2018 first Xfinity series championship. I sat with Tyler and that junior motor sports team in that hall are probably midsummer. They were a bit lost. He had looked at me and said, I'm not sure if I'd figure out these cars right. It was so many questions about how to be successful in NASCAR. He went to homestead though, put on that incredible performance and from that moment onward, it became, you know, Tyler Redick,

"At coda over this year just sort of what he were doing a track walk and I was inquiring, you know, maybe as a friend a little bit, maybe as a member of NBC sports and sort of being like, you know, what's going on, what's in your mind and you just said, you know, right now I'm focused on getting the best performance, but you could tell he knew he was a hot prospect. These discussions were happening in the background. And I think what's cool about this is it's a young team investing and you look at the accession of 23 11. I mean, they go from one car to two cars to now plotting this far in the future. We've heard that discussions about some of the things they want to do in terms of building shops and that sort of thing. So I think it's cool to see this in NASCAR that we haven't seen in years prior in the last decade or so as these younger teams like this like a track house that are coming in and making these investments and making investments for the future so far in advance. And I think one thing about this that was really interesting just in some of the comments I saw in your article Dustin, which was Danny basically saying like, we don't have the sponsor figured out. We're not exactly sure where the money's coming from, but we're getting this driver. We're going to figure it out. That's cool. I just love that. That shows a team that's just focused on one thing and one thing only and that's they want to have the best performance possible come the China tyre and cops in that car. And that's one thing that I think is really important to look at is and it's kind of like what you talked about Jeff is Tyler's looking at 23 11. Denny Hamlin's talked about a 5 year plan to be a championship type of team. Well, in 2024, that will be the fourth year of the organization. So Tyler Reddick's looking at an organization that should be more higher on the rise in terms of that planning. And for Denny Hamlin, he's getting a Tyler ready, who've been in the series for four seasons and will have had nearly 150 cup starts. And you look at he's 28 years old. That's a guy that you can build around for more than a decade. And if you look at some of the other guys that will be under 30 in 2024. All right, well, chase Elliott will be 28. Well, wait a minute. He signed through 2027, so you can't get him. William Byron will be 26. Well, wait a minute, he signed through 2025. You're not going to touch him. Ty Gibbs, we expect to be up at Joe Gibbs Racing. You'll be 21. You won't touch him. So then you're looking at a Christopher Bell, an Austin syndrome, Christopher Bell, presumably will still be at Joe Gibbs Racing Austin Cedric, Daytona 500 winner, people don't leave Team Penske for the most part. So he should be set there. A chase Briscoe, if he continues to have success, you would assume still be at Stewart Haas racing. So who are you going to get? Where are you going to build around? And if you're wanting to build around some young talent, here's a guy that's sitting there, go get them. And that's what they did. They looked at the picture and what the future was going to be and say, we're going to take it right now. And Denny Hamlin discussed yesterday why he wanted Tyler Reddick and let's take a listen to what he said during that news conference. Not one. It's been every time I've been on the racetrack rhythm. It's easy to spot talent when you got to go against it. I mean, I can tell you that. It's much easier. But I mean, for me, personally, it's some of the things he did and he really was amazing and again, winning two championships with two different teams. I mean, seeing the way that he was able to run the wall at homestead, it's just, I mean, Larson esque, right? And you know, I've had my fair share of success around that track, but still like, I can't compete with that. So it made sense to me. It's like, you know, you look at his age, his runway that he has. To me, you know, when you have, you know, franchise drivers don't come around that often. And so if there's ever one that you feel like you can grab, you go after it and you do whatever it takes to make that happen. And then you work on the details later. So Denny mentions so daddy mentions there that they won or that he was really caught his eye was caught by the fact that Tyler Reddick won back to back expanding championships in that Homestead Miami Speedway finale, Jeff, I know that that resonated with you as well, especially 2019, Tyler Reddick goes to Xfinity as a title contender at Homestead Miami Speedway and beats what was then the big three in Xfinity

"Too. And I appreciate the aggressiveness. I hate it for Richard Childress racing. You guys know, I'm a huge fan of Richard Childress. I do think Richard has an opportunity here, right? Not every situation has to be bad. I think Richard can view this. He needs to keep giving Tyler Reddick, the equipment he can win races with and even improve it. And that will help recruit the next guy and maybe with all the shake ups that are going on in this sport and I'm going to go on the sport RC can come out in a better situation. And RC is like a cat. You've told me that but there he's going to land on his feet and because he's smart. He's savvy, he's smart. He's been around. I hate it for him, but knowing Richard, you know, they're not going to look at this as the end of something. They're going to look at it as the opportunity for a beginning. And Denny Hamlin talked about Jeff how that they discussed that timing. And he felt as if this is going to happen, we know Tyler Reddick's going to leave, it's better to rip the band aid off now and give Richard Childress racing a little bit of runway, even though it's going to be a little bit awkward, Dustin. And but this has happened with Richard Childress racing before. Unfortunately, they lose Kevin Harvick for the 2013 season or to Stewart Haas racing, and they knew about that before Harvick raced out the 2013 season. Yeah, and again, I think like Jeff said this is a brilliant move because I think what it is is Denny Hamlin's getting ahead of the game. And Steve a lot of the president of 23 11 talked about that they want to be a transformative team and innovative team and aggressive team. And by getting a driver for 2024, they have done that. And again, in 2023, what you're looking at is a potential for a free agent frenzy, Kevin Harvick's contract expires after the 2023 season. You've got two contracts that Hendrick motor sports Kyle Larson, Alex Bowman that are up. Joey Logano's contracts up, although I know they've talked about doing an extension there. Martin trex junior has only committed for one season. There's some other potential ones out there too. So there were a lot of race winning teams that have the potential to have an opening that could have tried to lure and get in the game on Tyler Reddick and Denny Hamlin's like, look, this is the guy that I want. And so I'm going to strike while the iron is hot and I'm going to beat people to the punch on this. And again, this is becoming the 23 11 most of Ronde. One thing that I think is interesting and always talked about is right now is 23 11 better than RCR. So we talk a lot about Denny Hamlin, saying there's my guy. That's my franchise driver. Tyler Reddick had to do the same with 23 11. And that shows the faith that he has and what Denny Hamlin can make happen, what Toyota can make happen because 23 11 right now today is not a better ride than Richard Jones. It's got as many wins as Richard Childress racing. Look at the points. Look at right. It's not a better ride. Right now. Yeah. But Tyler Reddick's looking at the future. And he is not only is Denny Hamlin saying that's my guy, Tyler Rex doing the same thing. And he's looking down the road the same way Hamlin is saying, okay, I'm not going to look at just results today. I want to look at results two years from now. Where are we going to be two years from now? And that shows a tremendous amount of faith. And what I believe is one of the hottest free agents a year ahead. One of the hardest free agents on the market. And Dustin wrote a nice story about that on NBC sports dot com last night. Okay, so we've heard from retired driver. We've heard from sportswriter. Got to bring in an active NASCAR driver, Parker Kligerman, joining us in Stanford, the most recent wear in the truck series, Parker, what did you make of this news? I know that you've talked to Tyler Reddick, both as a driver, and as a pit reporter, your thoughts on all of this. Well, I think it's pretty cool, at least in terms of a young team investing in the sport. I mean, you guys allude to, he was a hot prospect. We knew that. I actually had that discussion and back at coda over this year just sort of what he were doing a track walk and I was inquiring, you know, maybe as a friend a little bit, maybe as a member of NBC sports

On NBC, USA and peacock. Thank you. All of you. But I think we have Tyler I appreciate you joining our availability man, but I think you might be on the wrong. You might have entered the wrong media availability session. Yeah, I actually, I don't think that he did. I'd like to announce to the media that today I would like to formally announce Tyler Redick is part of a future member of the 23 11 and Twitter racing family starting in 2024. So, hi, buddy. Hey. What's up? Thanks. Surprise? Surprise. Welcome to NASCAR American motor mouse. You just saw that's how the big news landed in NASCAR yesterday, Nate Ryan here with Jeff Burton, Dustin, are you in the room? What am I doing here? I'm not supposed to be here. That's the line is supposed to be here. He is in the right place. We also have Parker Kligerman joining us from Stanford a little bit here, but let's start discussing the news. I mean, your take, did you know that Tyler Reddick was going to go drive for 23 11 racing in 2024 before yesterday? Well, I'm not going to answer that question, but my first, I want to let everybody know that when I found out I was coming on the show with two writers, I downloaded the dictionary in my phone, so I would understand all the words that are going to be used today. We're ganging up on YouTube laptops versus zero. So listen. No, I did not know. And what was great about that video was urging watching the members of the media. They're all still think it's a joke. They're all like, ah, it's funny. They're like, wait a minute, this is real. I think it's a brilliant move by Denny Hamlin and his team. I think if you look at what Denny Hamlin is building there, I think he's done a great job. They're bringing in a guy that I believe is a franchise player. And if you think about Michael Jordan and one player can do a one great quarterback, one great driver can do one great player on NBA team. He can have a major impact, not just in an individual race, but in winning championships. And they believe they got their guy. And I think they did too. And I appreciate the aggressiveness. I hate it for Richard Childress racing. You guys know, I'm a huge fan of Richard Childress. I do think Richard has an opportunity here,

"I do believe if they continue to run like they had run and like they ran ran sunday. But we we have to go back to darlington. You have to go back to some of these races and they just things happen. And they weren't in a game they got to be a game like were midseason where they were just knocking off those top five top tens and be consistent and they can't make any mistakes i i just don't i think they're a team that has the speed can overcome mistakes but they can't have any more mistakes and and with his age regardless of the results playoffs going to be invaluable. I mean he's gonna be one of the franchise drivers everybody's gonna be looking at in for years to come on what it was like watching jimmy and jeff there when they first had that shot at it i i. I went over the scheme. I think found his footing. One bit there so gerry or jerry. Because my hearing is awful. You're wrong steve. My question is Senior pit crews pump. The gun three times the put the wheels on we had a lot of loose wheels yesterday. Your comments on that. I think you're absolutely dead on it. I think you know so. Let's go all the way back. Pit crews at one point weren't even glue and five lug nuts to the glue. Four nascar had him step in and say okay stop gonna make their severe pint severe fines and penalties. Roddy genders is not going to be at talladega. Because they had to missing lug nuts on the four-car. But i think you're absolutely right when i watch pitstops during the race. It seems like the effort. To tighten twenty. Lug nuts isn't quite as high as it perhaps could be. I think unfortunate part for nascar is where six races from a new car with one nut. So i think this is something that they need to address. I think it's gonna police itself and it is with the loose weight released so it is policing themselves so i believe this is one more thing you have to decide. Jeff how willing you are going to be two twenty tight. No doubt lug nuts or or are how aggressive you try to keep up with your fellow teams on throw ferdie. Schumer the race winner early in the ray sent. Hey i feel like. I got a vibration. You might not get one tight. Don't do that anymore right that today. But if you're down from the race i understand. It's odds matter. I get it. I understand it but we are seeing so many drivers having to pit were loose wheels. I just i. I don't know man you gotta get them tight. Yeah this is the fascinating part to me on the loose wheel thing is. Is you gamble and you. You gamble just to stay even a lot of times. They're gambling just to stay there. It's not gambling to get ahead. I'm only going to do three lugs just to stay in second just to stay in quinton type one seven three because the penalty for having that loose wheel is far greater than the risk versus reward. A lot of times is not is not there.

"Tenth and be upset about that is is good so we'll learn from our mistakes and and be better throughout the rest of here all right. So there is a three of the four hendrick drivers and discussion and a lot of conversation about painting and getting behind and wave around. So kyle i know you can indulge me for a moment. I love some strategy conversation. Go so i think the best thing to do is kind of relive i oxide. This attorney porn race. I feel like kyle. Larson had this enhanced. It all started at ninety. Three shaw joey. Gates's accident that was cautioned this early stage two. I'm talking stage to not even one hundred laps into the race. To caution comes out. Hendrick cars stay on the racetrack denny. Hamlin for third. He thinks it's a no brainer. He turns he comes to pit road. What that does is put the hendrick cars at a position where they can't make fuel great adjustments by alan gusta said. I didn't see this call working out. He was right. I was totally wrong. They came in with a nine cargo. Four fresh tires for that reason they were going to chase the leader down. One of them was going to do the same thing trouble on the right front. I wanna take a moment say bank goodness the guy in the left rear smart enough to not take the lug nuts off allowed them to only take two tires larson than leads runs berry berry along. As does alex bowman the strategy for both of those cars. Take the white around the end. The state as mentioned chase elliott tons of speak unlatched himself on the race. Track an extra pitstops so fast laps and self saves his day. This past which seems like nothing but twenty. Four billion bypassing the forty two with two to go on the stage puts him in the free pass position. That changes the lineup. Now chase new tires on the lead. Lap gives them a chance. William byron new tires but back in the field. Right there highlighted. You see kyle larson with the wave around larsen and bowman. Now they have old tires and they're not just back they are the last two cars an amazing final stage no cautions chase elliott drives from fourteenth to second. Yeah william byron drove into the top. Five flat tire. Didn't matter ruined a great rally but had a great rally. Bowman flat tire didn't have a chance. Kyle larson amazingly could only get back to tenth. So it's easy to break down on monday. The call seems clear anything but made way worse and all the crew cheese owned up to us. They did so. I ask you to. Is this no worries and the rest of field should be thankful they made a mistake or is this something that should be discussing in the future looking at the other mama half tracks. Well listen i. I think you have to. You know. i've never been through cheap but the only thing you can do take your best guess at it now. Are we going to get a caution or not and clearly. They assume they're going to caution and all the mama half it's not bristol and you can't get lured into okay. We've had these crazy races for the last time weeks. And thank you going to get that same thing easy to say on monday and you know i think it will happen in the next race is if they can make it all fuel the rest of the way. They're going to be on pit the half as easy to say today. You know i. I felt really bad. For for william because william byron i. He was the driver of the race. I mean he came from bag multiple times. I don't know what happened. They couldn't get the right. Took him forever to get the right for tyrone. I don't know if the wheel was turned it could not get the right front tire on and that mess them up. And this is a big difference between being in the lead lap and being the first car lap down and getting the wave around. That's a major difference in track position and of course. He had a flat flat tire later. But that prevented him from getting this. Get back in the same way denny. Hamlin chase elliott. Did he had enough speed to do it too. So just things go their way on a day where they made a mistake on pit road. They also had flat tires at other issues as well. And you're just going to have those days go over reactive. I if i was. They have great cars there fast enough to do what they needed to get done. I wouldn't overreact. Ipad metro cheese on the back. And say it's okay. It's going to be okay. go on the next race. I know there behind on tires. But so what are the ryan blaney. Who did drive up to the top five. Were you surprised. Larson couldn't recover more okay. I was surprised. Larson didn't recover more than what he did. After watching william byron and after watching chase elliott. Here here's what i'm going to say. And i know there was a mistake made. Do i believe that these guys will make a mistake. And the next what six or seven races at six six now i. This is their mistake. This this is so the other crew chiefs and other teams have to be a little nervous that oh they all made a mistake. I don't believe they're going to do that again. Number one number two. Show me another organization out there. They could have made this mistake. It's still drove back to the top. Ten show me another organization that was in the race. Maybe gibbs organization but not the entire pinski organization not the entire hint stewart haas organization. Yeah this was an entire organization. Almost take take bowman out. Those three guys drove themselves back into the top. Ten drove themselves back into a points. Position drove themselves back into contention. And what if they'd have gotten a caution in the last fifteen laps twenty laps of the race. How larson's is going to be dangerous at that point in time. If baron hadn't had a flat tire he's going to be dangerous at that point. So i think there's even though we can say that was mistake was made Felt like they overcome and a lot of ways they did. They win the race. No that's that's what we're all talking about. They didn't win the race and they could have won the race but the overcame in so many ways..

"One thing that that you have to keep in mind as you're a group of people you're not just racing at christopher bell's not just racing de hamlet. He's racing from cow arts. And back that whole group he's gotta he's gotta inserting himself somewhere in there to gain points on that group and the best way to gain points on the group is when the groups in the garage area. And you're still out there. Running talladega is that place for dini mentally. It just takes stress on and we all know what it's like when you can take stress off for just a little while dinnie. Has that stress relief all week long all week long. He doesn't have to worry about talladega. He can look past how i agree with you. He goes there to win. They go every week to win but he doesn't have to worry if he doesn't win he doesn't have to worry if something happens. Well you mentioned the group. We were fortunate to catch up with most of the playoff drivers. You may not here for the team. Hendrick here because we're gonna talk about them separate because they had some great cars with some other issues. We a breakdown in the second segment but hero a bunch other playoff drivers reflecting on their rates. Las vegas on the balance never really changed on our subway ford mustang and kept plugging away at it and better than we were here last time made up some points and go to the next one is this is another example of guys making the most of you cannot have race and out of a day done it all year. It's an old story right. So we're all speed really. I mean i thought a couple of cars a little bit quicker than us Behind ball over there in the second stage having to pit at the end and having takeaway company back. So that kinda hurts. Nothing really wanted is planned We're definitely better in the daytime when the track was hot. Probably your best round. Unfortunately that was when we had a pit before the green flag after the cop caution there and lost the handle a little bit lost some speed on top of that had vibration so pretty much. Nothing went good at the end of the race. Oh maybe we should be happy with an eleventh after all of that and fighting through it less them on the table as part of the frustrating at at no point where we the fastest car but we executed a really really. Well an awesome job. We're not beating ourselves. This is a really dangerous team with execution. We have right now if we could just find a little bit of speed. We can win races when the championship. Yeah just disappointing Locked front breaks up coming into pit road and couldn't turn and got into them so that was super disappointing but rice is pretty much room before we got started. So you know. I don't know. I feel like we have the speed. We're capable of running with those guys. We just gotta clean up a little bit of mistakes on my end. We just never could could get the balance right Really struggling off. Turn for all day long. We did so not sure exactly. Why not really something. We've had here in the past. Wish we could have been better but all in all not to grind out a force with cars. is a good effort and i was looking forward to the lights coming on us. Picking up speed and being able to rip the wall little bit faster but when we got hit into the fence off to the first time it definitely knocked out of our car and then i got into the fence again trying to get by lap car so just You know not enough room over there. I guess the good piece. We move forward all day long so that was good. I've said it. I'll say it all the time. If you go to talladega and you can come out of there with a twelfth place. Finish with with. No states points That's a successful day. So i'll take that right now if i can skip it well. Unfortunately kabushiki can't skip it Before we move on. I want i would be missing out to congratulate kyle. Busch six hundred start.
