"Like this don't put ourselves in a position so early in the year that we're playing we're like trying to do things that are out of our characters. So Tyler Reddick, to me, stands out as a guy that, okay, you're watching the car, you drove last year, do what it's done. You watching what you guys have done, you haven't been out to finish a race yet. How do we address this? And let's don't react to it. Let's respond to it. Let's respond and make some whatever we need to do to perform, to get the finishes, to get a foundation built underneath us. This is a long-term relationship. This isn't just about the first two races of 2020 for 2023, rather than sitting about that. It's about what are we built to, so when we get to the end of the year, we're in position where we wanted to be. And I think it's important for them to have those conversations to get the foundation bill because they haven't been able to build a foundation yet. And that's going to be really important for that team. Great point. Certainly, keep an eye on that number 45 Toyota. We started out talking about the guy who's in the car. He was driving last year, the number 8 Chevrolet Kyle Busch and we finished talking about what's next for Tyler Reddick. That is definitely going to be interesting to watch. Always interesting talking to you, sir. Thanks for being here, Jeff. I know that it's a little bit of a slog getting back here to do this. And I always appreciate all of your time. The mayor, everybody. Thanks for being here. Thank you, Nate. We appreciate Jeff Burton for joining us on the NASCAR NBC podcast. Thanks to motor sports manager, Emily convoy, and senior associate producer Aaron feldstein for recording the mayor's appearance and for helping with the recording.

"So you go to California with something that you believe in and you're going to stick you're going to stick with it most likely or some people build something like, oh, that's too big on experiment. We need to bail. And go to something that's more reliable, but yeah, alloy 20 minutes of practice doesn't seem like much. It still gives you some direction. And by the way, it's not enough. We can't have a series of red practices for 20 minutes every week. I mean, at some point, at some point, and I know this controversial conversation, but at some point, we've got to have some days where we have more practice. That's just my opinion. There's some value in practice, not just for the teens and drivers and some value for the fans or some value for building up the energy for the weekend. I mean, we are the only major motor sports that is doing this. That doesn't make it wrong. Less practice is okay, but we've gone pretty far. On one side of it. Yeah, it really stood out for the biggest race of the year last week where I was really scratching my head before the duels. What would be the right number, do you think? An hour? I think it's fine to do some races with 20 minute practices. I also think we need, you know, we need some events where you have a full hour or teams and drivers. We've got to remember this too, now because we're also developing the next drivers. We're the only sport, except for golf, but major sport, that you pull for a driver that's going to retire. The Dallas Cowboys aren't going to retire. And you're going to pull if you're a cowboys fan, although you may or may not like him as a player. You're going to pull for that quarterback. You're going to pull for that running back. You're going to pull for that wide receiver. Because they got the star on their helmet. Here, you pull for Kevin Harvick. You pull, and that's no disrespect to the owners. You just, it is what it is. You pull for chase Elliott, whoever he is. Well, he's going to retire. And he's going to be replaced by somebody. So we've got to find the more you practice and time, you pull away from these young drivers, the more less opportunity they have to close the gap. And that is a major part of our sport is finding the next round of drivers. It's constant. Almost every year we have a driver leave. That's probably an exaggeration, but we've got to have a way in which our young drivers are being groomed and they have enough time to be ready when that shot comes. It's really, really important. I hear you. And there were certainly some examples of some drivers who younger drivers who have persevered, despite the lack of practice in recent years. Corey Lajoie, he stuck out to me, ran top 15 consistently, came back from some early trouble finished 14th, in terms of other underdogs. I think we saw some people run at the front. RFK racing looks strong again, that a lot of people talk to Jeff about how this was the first race of the real season as they say. And like you said, I don't know how much you can take away without practice and with fontan to sort of being a unique track, but what else stood out to you, both good and bad among teams. I thought that the Penske guys had good speed, and they just, I'm not a 100% sure what happened with legato, but he lost some late in the race. Blaine had, he got, he got damaged, sender got damaged. So they had some good speed, but didn't get the results that they had hoped to get based on the speed that they had Chase Elliott, chase Elliott, a champion, you know, running second is not great. It's a good sign because they really struggle toward the end of last year. That's good for them. Kevin Harvick. I'm just telling you he's going to be dangerous this year. There's a lot of question in my mind. He's going to be dangerous because Rodney childress has so much respect for Kevin Harvick that he brought in children is going to be his the best he can possibly be for Kevin Harvick to have a chance to leave full-time cup racing with that big trophy. Rodney and Kevin are coming into this year super, super hungry. This is not the hey, we're going to ride around retirement tour in a way that people make friends. That is going to be the opposite of that. They are on tilt their own full tilt. Martin Truex. So I know he finished 11th, but he was two laps down at one point. He won the won the clash. Didn't want to race all year, ran well last year, they had the wheel come off, but persevered and still had decent speed and came back and finished 11th. I mean, I know that again, it's not a great day for him, but then as we get deeper in the field, Harrison, the last third of the race, they had really good speed. They came over the top 15. That's an improvement for those guys on mile and a half for a young driver like we just talked about. Chase Briscoe is a surprise that he just they just didn't run well. And I was in person, so I'm not sure if they were having a mechanic. I don't know what was going on. But they just didn't have the speed that you expected. So you mentioned Corey Lajoie, you know, he was in a minimum of three incidents yesterday. I would, but listen to more his fault. He was in there digging and fighting with him and showing people, hey, we're going to be up front. Clearly, they've got more speed than they had last year. One of those incidents, I wanted to ask you about Jeff. I mean, I think it was the biggest yellow in California speedway history, like biggest number of Rex involved in that restart crash. There was a lot of discussion afterward from drivers. People would try to maybe pin it on Joey Logano and Joey Logano explained like, hey, the restart zone is longer now. And it's going to be different for us to judge off of our fellow competitors and the cars around us. Like, when to go into slow, that's going to take a little bit of adaptation time. What did you make of that? And the longer restart zone, if you have any insight into that for this year. Yeah, so I think that I think Joey got it exactly right. I think Joey didn't do anything wrong. I mean, I watch the restart. He left in the restart zone. The research zone is longer this year, most of the drivers wanted a bigger restart zone. So very enters the resource zone. He's in the resource zone still. He just went by the first line. He hasn't gotten to the second line. And he just now is accelerating. There went the second line. So Joey just went late in the box. And everybody behind him was trying to anticipate when that sort was going to be. This is a wreck that I've seen at California many times. This is not a new Rick. I've seen this wreck Ricky Stenhouse and I were talking about it last night. He's like, I've been in the same record. California. It gets more difficult. So the resource get more difficult on the tracks that the drivers are all on the same straight and they can't see around. So if you think about it where we have big polyps, we used to have an indie all the time. We've had a Pocono all the time, New Hampshire, places like that because the drivers can't see. If certain tracks are easier and you can see what's going on in front of you, so we don't get these polyps. The restart zone, yeah, I think it played a factor, but I also know that I've watched this wreck many times before with all different kinds of restart zones and all different kinds of rules.
Kyle Busch gets 1st RCR victory in Fontana's NASCAR farewell
"Just two races in with his new team at Richard Childress racing Kyle Busch goes to victory lane at Auto Club speedway in Los Angeles and Marx's name in the history books as the first driver to have 19 consecutive seasons with at least one win. There's not very many records that you can beat that Richard Petty has. With big changes coming to shorten the track, Bush said he was also glad to get the final NASCAR Cup Series win on the current two mile configuration. Sad day for me to see this racetrack be in its last race being a two mile configuration. So I'm glad I was able to win the final one here. Finishing second was chase Elliott, followed by Ross Chastain, who led the most laps on the day, but finished his third. I'm Jerry Jordan.

"It's more what car each driver will be driving. Not necessarily silly season is in just racing. But this is more the contractual side of the sport. I think he got a Chris Bell really hurt him. And at Chris Bell is an incredible talent, but Erik Jones kind of got shuffled out of the mix. And he's an incredible driver and he's one on very impressive tracks. So I was shocked to see him have as much speed as he did last year in Fontana. Now that when in Darlington that he had, I was not surprised. This guy, if he gets out there to lead, he's good enough to keep the lead and win a race. So, you know, he's 30 to one across the board. I think he's a very popular pick with everybody. And rightfully so it's very little risk with a handsome reward. Certainly capable. But I'm going to want to see more out of that 43 team. Before I get involved at this point, I'd much rather see him unload fast, qualify well, and see a price of 18 to 20 to one. Where I do think that there might be some additional value is with Noah Gregson, his new teammate. This guy is really, really good. The NASCAR model of physical, by the way, for those unfamiliar with Noah Gregson. And let's hope he went through the off season, took care of the breathing exercises. I want to make sure that he has a healthier approach to what he's going to do on track this season. You know, I was listening when I was at the clash. They actually had Eric and Noah up and they were talking about Noah's workout regimen. Either these guys are the greatest actors of all time or Noah actually works out a lot because they were so consistent. They didn't even break character. For two seconds, I was like, oh my gosh, Noah Gregson works out. But obviously, I don't think that's super true, but it also could be. They did such a good job of maintaining a straight face. However, I do think that there's going to be some upside with Gregson at some point this year. The Xfinity cars handled much differently than these cup cars, but anytime that there's a high tire wear and someone from that high line, Noah is not afraid to get up there and get after it and make up time. So I'm hoping that he has a chance to maybe get involved in some races, maybe steal a win somewhere. But I think at this point in the season, I'd rather see some fast practice times and some good qualifying before I get involved with Jones or Gregson. Now, Austin Dillon's a completely different story. Austin Dillon is a proven driver over a long period of time and I think that Kyle Busch being his teammate, I think it really helps him. It's hard to really quantify what that number might be or how much he's helping him. But if you look at if you look at just the clash, I would say arguably the best car was Austin Dillon at certain points in that race. And same thing when it came to the Daytona 500. I mean, he was right there with Kyle Busch when, you know, obviously there was a caution. So I think that there's tremendous upside on Austin Dillon. And the other thing too is he's going to be racing the Xfinity series, and I think that any time that a cup driver races the day before in the Xfinity series, they are one adjustment ahead of other cup guys that did not race in that series. So it's hard to put again another number on what that is worth. But I would say just one adjustment ahead. They know what an adjustment to the track bar is going to do. They know what some of the air pressure is going to do to the handling of the race car. And I think that that could prove beneficial for Austin Dillon this week. And at a 40 to one price and some handsome top 5 and top ten prices, I don't think he's a bad investor. John has been one of the drivers over the years that I've had a real hard time trying to handicap. Mainly in his head to head match ups because I'm not sure if the talent is necessarily there and I don't mean this as a dig by any stretch of the imagination, but you look at the steps that he's taken to get to this point in his racing career. It doesn't hurt that your grandfather is a team owner and you're always in very good equipment. RCR obviously bridge the gap at the next gen car and we'll see if Dylan to your point can lean on that relationship with Kyle Busch, they can share some of their findings and have a slightly more symbiotic relationship than Austin Dillon can glean from Tyler Redick, who is very talented, but just doesn't have that same memory bank. That same amount of data for Kyle Busch to be able to translate it as they bounce some ideas off each other. When you talk about Eric Jones and you look at some of the matchups that we could expect as far as on screen is concerned, he's matched up against chase Briscoe and Eric Jones matched up against Austin Dillon. So odds maker staying one step ahead of some of the guys that we may have wanted to zero in on to try and bet them in their head to heads this particular weekend, but no doubt guys that could crash the back half of the top ten and to your point if you shop around some pretty advantageous prices. Should you want to get involved a little bit early or maybe wait to see exactly how good these machines will be. You can follow Chris on Twitter at Chris wormy 15. I'm Todd firm and you, of course, can follow me there as well. Most importantly, as always, for all things, stay green. Follow bet the board pod. Worms are, we gave out Kyle Busch to win the series championship. That number has been on the move since we recorded our pre season preview. And for the best bet portion of the program, I have to ask, what have you identified pre week to try and get our listeners in a positive state of mind and begin to build the bankroll for the three race West Coast swing? Oh, we're sticking with our boy. Kyle Busch, top ten minus one 50 at barstool sports and also blah. Wait, you can actually bet it. I figured I wanted to get out of there a hundred years ago. And max bets $10. I'm just telling you. I'm very helpful. Very helpful. Now are the first ones and this guy says that's NASCAR for a living. What the hell is he living on Jack in the box if

"Like to look back too much at history because the cars are very different, the drivers and the people that the other drivers are competing against are also different. And but man, of 23 races, I think he's got something like ten top 5s. That's incredible. I mean, this is a great track for Kyle Busch. I know that in the last 7 races there, I try to keep it a tighter window on what I look back at because 23 races is a long time. I'd rather look at like its last 7. And I think he's got, he's got 5 top tens in the last 7. And that's very competitive. I know you it's hard to win races. It's hard to win golf tournaments just like it's hard to win races. And they don't just give those away. So I think that he's going to be really good this week. I thought we would see him open a little higher. I know that we had discussed this maybe before the clash that we might see like a 14 or 15 to one. You laughed at me. And then he opened 12 and you're like, well, maybe we might see that 14 to one. At this point, now that the market has moved a little bit. There are some places that still have 11. I would say consensus is ten. I'm going to go ahead and wait and see how he unloads. I'd way rather see him look really fast and we get him at 6 or 7 to one. Then take a chance on someone that might just struggle a little bit with a new team and communication. Then, you know, and jump on him at a shorter price. He has looked super strong. I mean, what he did at the clash was impressive, getting spun out late and still driving back up to third. Obviously had a chance to win the 500. So I think that he's kind of clicking and I look forward to him having a good season, but I do need everyone to kind of keep me in touch. We'll do whatever he can in that regard, but to highlight your point when you look at Kyle Busch and obviously some of this history, not exactly relevant this weekend. Active leader at Fontana in just about everything from wins, top 5s, top tens and laps led. So clearly a place he feels more than comfortable and would love to be able to grab a checkered flag in the first. I call it the first real race of the season that's not Daytona and the exhibition for the clash. Another driver that Kyle has already had choice words for so far this season would be Joey Logano. And Joey Logano has oftentimes been a bridesmaid at Auto Club speedway, but never a bride, 15 cup starts here, still looking for that first elusive win, but he's been a model of consistency. A 5th place finish, 12th, second, 5th, 5th, fourth, 7th, but he's only led 30 laps in that span. Your feelings on Joey Logano are well documented about sometimes being willing to try and bet him in the outright market. But how are you approaching the 22 this weekend? A driver that typically has performed real well when it comes to the West Coast swing. Hi, I'm Lindsey Graham, the host of wondrous podcast American scandal. We bring to lie some of the biggest controversies in U.S. history, presidential lies, environmental disasters, corporate fraud. In our newest series, we look at the story of the Oklahoma City bombing, the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in the United States history. On April 19th, 1995, a moving truck packed with 4800 pounds of explosives was detonated in downtown Oklahoma City. When the bomb went off, it killed 168 people and injured over 600 more. At first both the American public and law enforcement believed international terrorists were behind the attack, but the evidence led investigators toward an unexpected and chilling conclusion. The Oklahoma City bombing appeared to be the work of domestic criminals in a plot bound together with political extremism, conspiracy theories, and a goal to strike back against the United States government. Follow American scandal wherever you get your podcasts. You can listen ad free on the Amazon music or wandering app. Well, Andy's great at how you wear tracks. If you look at the last year in this car, which I feel like is more relevant than actual historical data at this particular track, he did really, really well on highway tracks. He was, you know, I think homestead might have been a little bit of an anomaly where he wasn't quite as fast as what we thought he was going to be, but Darlington was a great track for him. Obviously it ran up front. And the top 5 throughout this race last year. He's just kind of the model of consistency, really. To be super cliche, you know, I would say he does have an advantage on the pit box. I don't think that strategy is ever going to come into play. At Fontana, just because you're taking four tires and fuel if you're pitting. And anything over 5 laps unless they start to get a little concerned with the amount of tires used. I don't see strategy becoming an issue, but I do think Paul Wolfe, he sees around the corner better than most crew chiefs up there when it comes to strategy. So, you know, I think that's kind of a feather in his cap, but ultimately he's going to run well. I don't think he'll win the race, but I'm not going to bet on or against him. It makes sense. I mean, Joey's been a guy that has gone out there and really performed a high level. He oftentimes gets written off, maybe not the sexiest driver, but he's a two time champion right now. And we've seen what he's been able to do how prolific he's been when the series shifts out west. We talked about Kyle Busch a little bit earlier. And I think it makes sense to try and figure out exactly what we can expect from Kyle Busch's old team in JGR. I don't necessarily want to spend time on Thai Gibbs. I don't know if we're going to touch on him and talk about his overall relevance in terms of winning races early on in the season until he proves he can compete week in week out. But when you look at the trio of veterans on this race team and yes, I'm calling Christopher Bell a veteran at this point knowing what he was able to do last year in the postseason. GGR three wins combined at the track. In 93 career starts here, 20 top 5s, 40 top tens, 5 polls, and over a thousand laps led. When you look at Denny Hamlin, you look at Christopher Bell and you look at Martin Truex Junior who won this race here back in 2018, what are you realistically expecting from the 11 from the 19 and from the 20, I have to believe that these guys all have a chance to win, but they definitely didn't show some of that same consistency you'd like to try and clamor for them away the way they're currently being priced. Especially last year, you know, I think Toyota as a whole struggle to Fontana. But I think that that was, you know, Toyota wide. And I think that they fix that issue because if you look at the very next week, they were the fastest cars at Las Vegas. So whatever the issue was, it was kind of an anomaly. They were able to fix that problem and kind of move forward. I mean, they were the fastest on mile and a half. I would say pretty much the entire year last year. You know, if we want to start with Denny Hamlin, I think this guy had a chance to win more than any other Gibbs driver consistently. Now I know that Chris Bell was more towards the end of the season was able to pick up wins, but I think if you look at weekend and week out, Denny Hamlin was constantly running in the top 5. In addition to running in the top 5, I would say Hamlin and bell, I guess Kyle Busch and Truex love to just make mistakes, whether it was blow a tire, I mean, speeding on pit road, spinning out under your own volition. All of these things just kind of plagued all of JGR last year.

"Ryan Blaney Kyle Busch, Christopher Bell, Tyler Reddick, Ross Chastain, Martin Truex Junior, Joey Logano, William Byron, you name it. All the big names up there. You can cast a pretty wide net in this particular spot. So when you begin to try and approach the pre week numbers that were out there and you look at the favorites, you look at the value, I guess it makes the most sense to start with the man who won this race a year ago. In California native and Kyle Larson and how you feel about the way he's being priced pre week, given that the last 8 races we've seen at Auto Club speedway for Kyle Larson, he's got four top two finishes, but he does also have four finishes outside the top ten. I think if you look at last year's race, yes, he did win. And there's obviously you have to give him credit for that. But I would say he wasn't even a top 5 car. You know, I know that sometimes you alluded to earlier in the show that maybe 20% of the time I'd say maybe it's a little higher than that, that the fastest car actually wins a race. This clearly was a situation where the fastest car did not win the race. I don't even know that a top 5 car won the race. So I know that that recency bias and he won there last time and he definitely showed some speed. By the way, he showed a little speed at homestead last year. I think he clubbed the field. Is this where you're going to go about patting yourself on the back saying he was record breaking speed and that Kyle Larson, if there were no other cars on the track, would have broken every land speed record or whatever the hell else you said that was so ridiculous and erroneous? Yeah, I could keep going if you want. But either way, I still think Larsen probably should be the favorite. However, he did not show the speed last year that was a race winning car. He definitely got it done late on a couple of restarts where he fought off Daniel Suarez, which we didn't realize at the time was going to be a contender. So we may be discounting Kyle Larson a little bit, but at 6 and a half to one or 7 to one. I'd rather see him unload super fast and bed him at maybe a plus four 50 or 5 to one. And I think when you look at the way the odds makers adjusted some of the prices last season, given the uncertainty of the next gen car and the parry that we saw, we didn't see a lot of race favorites even after practice and qualifying if they had the most dominant machine through practice. They qualified on the poll go off at the odds that we grew accustomed two years ago and you kind of took me under your wing to teach me the nuances of the sport where Kevin Harvick could go off at three to two. I mean, those days I think are in the past. So to your point, Kyle Larson go out there have a great machine. I can't see a scenario where he opens up less than four and a half to one. So what's the incentive to try and run and better him at 5 and a half or 6 right now until you know exactly what he's working with? I think that's really important. I mean, anything that you're going to bet on from an outright and a matchups perspective. I guess from any perspective, you want to make sure you're going to your predicting where the market's headed because if you don't think you're beating the market now and you think you might get a better price after practicing qualifying. Well, you sure as hell shouldn't be betting him right now. And I think when there's very little downside risk, like waiting on Kyle Larson, like Kyle's not going to go off at three to one. He'd have to be a rocket to go off at three to one. And by the way, if he does, we'll go ahead and take him at three to one. But you know, I'd rather wax. All right, we're still kind of in the precinct. To articulate just yet. I mean, I'd rather wait and see him unload and feel comfortable with this car because there's a good chance you get unload and they could be off a little bit and you might see a higher price on him. You know, maybe an 8 to 9 to one, especially if you see other really competitive drivers like maybe a chase Elliott or Kyle Busch, unload super fast, put it on the pole or at least qualify well. That could boost Kyle Larson's odds up. So at this point, I'm not interested in Larsen. I do think he should be the favorite, but I think he's probably properly priced. Well, we may as well go well go from one Kyle to another. And I'm a little bit reluctant to do this because I think other than maybe Kyle Busch's wife Samantha. You've pumped up the tires on the number 8 machine for RCR more than anybody this off season. So let's see if he can live up to those expectations. But when you look at Kyle Busch, Tyler Reddick driving the same car last year, led almost half the laps and arguably had the best car on track until he got caught up in a muddled mess late. When you look at Kyle Busch shown an ability to compete through the first two races, misfortune in the Daytona 500 that we talked about at the top of the show and it was Joey Logano driving through his rear at the clash. But this is arguably been one of Kyle Busch's best tracks. We saw a little bit of movement early on pre week from 12 to one at some shops down to ten to one. What are your expectations for Kyle Busch when he gets to go racing for the first time as a member of RCR? Well, this is where you're going to have to keep me in check, Todd, because I obviously have a lot on him at 18 to one. I have a lot on his over one and a half wins. So obviously my personal bias is going to lie with Kyle. So if ever I get off on a Kyle tangent, I hope that you and all the loyal listeners out there kind of really back in and be like, well, Kyle wasn't actually that good, or he might not actually be this good this week. You know, listen, Kyle was trashed there last year, and he struggled to make finishes. I think that they were very aggressive in that 18 Toyota and they made some mistakes. I think that that's why he found himself with a lot of DNFs or a lot of poor finishes where he was maybe had a tire failure or a late spin that kind of cost him the chance to win. It wasn't for a lack of speed. Now, if you want to look at specifically Fontana, this is one of his best tracks.

"It's obviously positive sign to see some of those ratings. They're knowing that people are tuning in to the great American race and it's a credit to the NASCAR TV partners that build this kind of as the Super Bowl of the sport, whether or not we like plate racing, I think, is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things because people want to watch and see it all unfold. You mentioned speed week though, and I do want to be critical, though, of the format that we saw. And regardless of where we go, why are we going out there? I mean, qualifying without practice is fine. But why are we running the duels and then having practice? I mean, it makes no sense. Do it the other way around, at least let these guys run practice because by the time you get into race conditions and you're running 60 laps, those practices are completely irrelevant and you saw a lot of that in terms of the slow nature of on track activity. Well, you know, these cars just unload and go qualify means some of them weren't even capable of getting out there on the track. You didn't like to look at Connor. You didn't like to look at Connor Davis. They think his car drove like a 19 92 Honda accord that I used to drive around when I refused to spend money to get my shocks replaced. At least let him shake down the car, you know, at least make sure that their ride heights are normal. I think it's really difficult. It's a big ask. And also, you know, we've had all off season to work on these cars. I just think it's important, you know, your first time doing a super speedway. Let's get something out on the track. And I don't want to get into the politics of it. No, no, no, no, for sure. If they can't race the car, if they can't race the car, you know, just cold and they shouldn't be in the Daytona 500. It's like, well, what if there's an issue? And I think with safety being kind of at the top of the list, especially this year with the microscope that was put on it last year. You know, let the guys get out there and get comfortable before you throw them into a competitive environment that have points implications. Well, one thing I will say to you on it, I like the fact that we saw some big names get into the Daytona 500 Travis Pastrana is able to qualify on speed. But at the same time, I'm not sure it would have done justice to the full-time cup drivers if Travis Pastrana finishes inside the top 5. And so I'm glad on some level that that didn't unfold in the 67 car that he was competitive. He finished all the laps and that's what 23 XI racing kind of said they wanted to happen. But I'm just glad that he wasn't in the mix for a podium finish late because it would diminish how difficult that style of racing really is. And we know there's a massive luck component involved. Every time we go to Daytona Talladega and of course, now Atlanta with the repave. Yeah, I mean, that might be a black eye if Pastrana goes out there and wins it on a 500. I think it would maybe reveal the amount of luck that's involved. Now, I do think anybody can get lucky and win there once you look at someone like Trevor bane who went out there and did it when they had that tandem draft. But you know, there's also guys like Denny Hamlin who won it three times. It might be lucky once. I don't think it's lucky three times. So there's definitely an element of skill, a 100%, but to have someone like Tony Stewart never win the 500. Yeah, you want a Daytona, but never win the 500. It goes to show you that there's some luck involved, but still don't mention that to Kyle Busch 'cause we saw that he was not all too thrilled with his post race press or saying. And then the old rules, he would have that elusive Daytona 500 championship. Instead, by circumstances beyond his control, it remains elusive as far as one of the big, you know, Triple Crown races, so to speak, or crown jewels as far as NASCAR is concerned for Kyle Busch. But for those folks who are unfamiliar with the voices you're hearing here, you can follow Chris on Twitter. That's at Chris wormy 15. I'm of course Todd fuhrman, you can follow me on Twitter and most importantly follow the podcast at bet the board pod. And as far as recaps, you look, I mean, Daytona is fun. I'm glad we're talking about it, but there's not much to be learned from that track that we can take and apply going forward. So I think we're better served to kind of jump into stage two and kind of reintroduce some of the NASCAR basics before we do get into a full comprehensive breakdown of Auto Club speedway. And the pala 400 this weekend. So I'm going to be the idiot here, worm. I'm going to ask you simple questions for those folks who may be looking to learn a little bit more about NASCAR and bet it slightly more seriously than they've ever done in the past. Because last year when we started this podcast, we picked up in the middle of the season. Now people are going to have a chance to be with us for 30 plus races. They'll be the occasional biweek for us as well in the middle. But I wanted to get your overall philosophy on betting NASCAR kind of how you got started in this space and what goes into your process
"auto club" Discussed on Bet The Board
"I'm your host Todd fuhrman joined as always by my co host and racing analyst extraordinaire Chris wormy. But before we let Chris tell us how he spent last Sunday afternoon and diving into this weekend's pala 400 from Auto Club speedway, some housekeeping. Chris and I wanted to discuss the future of stay green with you, all of our loyal bet the board listeners. Last week, there wasn't a show for Daytona. The betting opportunities is everyone has come to realize aren't great with play races and we got demolition Derby late like most of us anticipated. But the real reason for no Daytona podcast is that the 11th hour NASCAR informed us they didn't have the funds to further its commitment to stay green for the 2023 season. Having already recorded a season preview with Danielle trotta in good faith as negotiations were ongoing and left Chris myself and the rest of bet the board in a very difficult precarious position. We're in the business of creating informative content at an unmatched level, which comes with increased sweat equity, where monetization is important. Nobody expects to show up at work Monday for free and saying that our mission for bet the board has always been since day one back in 2014. We will continue to be about producing sports betting content that raises the industry bar and it's clear we achieve that in year one of stay green. Rather than shutter the show without support from NASCAR, we wholeheartedly believe that stay green product is far too good and candidly is much needed for a sport that lacks great actionable betting content that's created by professional betters for betters of all ability levels. The messages, emails, and comments, received by Chris, bet the board, pain, and me confirmed our gut instinct. That stay green must go on for the 2020 three season, as we'll figure out the rest later. We have a tremendous distribution partner in one tree Amazon that believes in bet the board. And the type of content we create above and beyond everyone else in this space. Always remember, though, word of mouth questions and feedback, create the kind of awareness and encourage us to heighten the bar with every single show we produce. So help us spread the word by retweeting. Tell a friend, a family member, your coworkers, and help make stay green the flagship NASCAR betting show, even if the league chose to pursue other platforms, they deem fit for gambling content. All right, worms are with some of those formalities out of the way. Now is the time of the show before we get into the nuts and bolts and we try and figure out who's gonna grab the checkered flag at Fontana this weekend that you can share with our loyal stay green listenership. What you were doing Sunday afternoon while the majority of the NASCAR community casual fans in diehards alike were glued to the edge of their seat, watching the longest Daytona 500 in recorded history. Well, that's funny you ask because Todd, I'm a weak man. And I don't have the ability to watch a NASCAR race without forming an opinion and making a live bet. So it's very important that I find myself very busy during this race. And you know what? My lovely new wife. We haven't even been married two months now. She had an over 35 soccer game, and so I went there with a 6 pack of beer and watched women's soccer and just enjoyed the hell out of myself and I followed max homa. A good friend of mine on the PGA Tour app, and I just sat there and didn't even look at a box score or a live update. At all. So I was watching most importantly here. Did you at least have a little bit of action on the soccer match? You know, that's total, aside, a live bet. There had to be somebody that you were able to get down a few dollars shotgun in a beard, at least make it worth your while when you were out there watching her. Listen, usually under two is a home run. Or a pounder. But yeah, a late goal by the other team, just to devastating loss for my wife's team, they scored with ten seconds and ten seconds to go and stop each time. We still haven't recovered over here at the wormy household, but I mean, listen, there was a lot of guys just sitting around with little cooler sitting next to them, enjoying the beautiful sunshine in Arizona, which is apparently disappearing. We're going to get into that, obviously. It's going to factor into how we break down the race this weekend from Auto Club speedway because mother nature may have her say and exactly what we can and can not get done on the track. But for those folks new to the stay green podcast just going to lay out the format a little bit for you. We typically break this up in a stage is much like you see in the NASCAR series stage one stage two and stage three. Things will be a little bit different with our second show of the year. No guests to speak of here. Our goal this season to land some of the biggest name in the sport, make them feel comfortable throwing around some of the gambling vernacular. And again, shout out to Danielle trotta. She was brave enough to be the first guest of the season when we previewed things. And a lot of that information is still very relevant for those folks that haven't listened to that podcast. So first things first as far as stage one and we'll look to shorten this up as the season goes on this year, congrats to Ricky Stenhouse, winner of the Daytona 500 and he becomes the 20th different driver to win a points race in the next gen car. And Martin Truex had won the clash, Ryan Blaney won the all star race. So pretty much everybody right now who's up part of these charter teams has found a way to grab a checkered flag in one capacity or another. And it's exactly what NASCAR wants in a level of parity. Oh, of course. I mean, no, I know. You made that abundantly clear already. So just so you know, everybody, I did not watch the Daytona 500. Well, I'm happy for Ricky Stenhouse. It's the first time he's won a few years now, and obviously I think he's only one on plate tracks. The guy needed a win and you know what? The Daytona 500 will usually take care of the next couple of years of your life. So maybe he can parlay this into being competitive on non super speedway tracks. This week is actually a good track for him. He ran while there last year. He's a dirt tracker any time things get super loose and you tend to lose grip. He's going to be good. But overall, speed weeks, some of the ratings came in and I saw some stuff on Twitter about the ratings. And in 8 million people turned into this race or tuned in, which is four times more people than tune into a Formula One race. So for all those drive to survive people out there, you're still not even close, you're about four X short. At least domestically they are internationally. We have a long way to go with NASCAR getting there, but we have to start one place first. And I got to be careful when it comes to taking shots at drive to survive, which I have watched all the seasons. I think the new one comes out soon, that I have a member of my household that says she won't watch NASCAR in its entirety. I'm gradually trying to convert her a little bit as we go, but you're right.
"auto club" Discussed on The Final Lap
"Hey, what's going on everybody? Rowdy dragon back again with this week's final app weekly fantasy update. They were covering the Daytona 500, recap, and we'll take a look at some pics and get you set up for Auto Club speedway out in California. Let's just jump right on into this. Take a look at the stage winners for the Daytona 500. For the first stage, we've got moonshiner three who tied with losing makes my dick trickle. Looking at our second stage, kiss my. What? Came out ahead of everybody there, and the winner for your Daytona 500 is monkey and a football. They racked up a 197 points, and 36 stage points. All right, quickly taking a look and see how rowdy Toby and Carrie did, as well as our two sponsors, Joe Biden, louville max, starting on top with rowdy dragon, I finished in the 136th spot that is about on par with the picks that I make. So I'm not too upset with that. Toby Christie had a little bit of rough day over there, he'd finished in the 211th spot, Carey Murphy, Jimmy is back. We've got a new name for Carrie this year. He tied with me. Up there in 136th looking at our sponsors, Joe bike. Also, tied with Carrie and myself, finishing in 136th place. And Louisville max also, right there with us finishing in the 133rd spot. That's Daytona in a nutshell for you folks. So let's move on and take a look at some picks for you guys set you up for this week at California. At Auto Club speedway, got three drivers. Starting with the 5 car Kyle Larson, he's got 8 races behind him, with an average finish of 13th. He's got four top 5s and four top ten, so he comes in the top 5 or top ten and 50% of his races. And he has led 138 laps over his career at the track, averaging out to 17.25 laps led for race, and he does have two wins here at the track. Kyle's collected stage points in 6 out of ten races, one of those being a stage win. Now in the 8 races Kyle Larson has run in California, he has finished top two in half of his runs. With two wins and two second place finishes. At homestead, one of the more similar tracks to California, he dominated the field winning both stages coming home with a victory and a perfect driver rating of one 50. Look for the 5 team to be contenders this Sunday. Our second driver to look at for this week is the 8 car Kyle Busch. He's got 23 races at California with an average finish of 9.8. He finishes in the top 5 in 48% of his runs at 11 out of those 23 races, and finishes in the top ten 70% of the time. At 16 out of 23 races, he's up there. In the top ten, Kyle knows how to get her on this track. He's let 807 laps over the course of his career. That averages out to 35.1 laps led per race. He does have four wins at the track, and has collected stage points in 8 out of the ten races that we've had since the inception of stage points. Two of those being stage win. In Kyle's last ten runs in Fontana, he has an average finish of 6th, his latest win was in 2019 where he led both stages finishing with a near perfect driver rating of one 48.5. Tyler Redick had a good run in the 8 car winning both stages before tire issues hampered his run, Kyle Busch should be a FrontRunner in that 8 car. And you should consider him for your lineup for this weekend. And finally, we'll take a look at a back marker, the number 43 Eric Jones. He's got 5 races run up the track with an average finish of 10.2, not so bad. He's got one top 5 finish in those 5 races that's 20% of his runs, and three top ten finishes, averaging out to 60% of his runs. Finishing in the top ten. He has led a handful of laps at 18 averaging out to three .6 laps led per race, still has yet to win in California, but has collected stage points in quite a few of the stages run. That's 9 out of ten. Still no stage wins for him. Now looking at Eric's loop data from last season that grabbed my attention for this back marketing. He was first an average running position, first in driver rating at one 22.7, first in fastest drivers early in a run. Second fastest late in a run, he had the second fastest lap run on the day, he was fastest on restarts. He also had the fastest green flag speed. And he ran in the top 15 for the entire race, as well as having the fourth most laps led. The list continues he was 5th in quality passes, and finally, first in speed by segment. If that Jones boy can duplicate his run from last season, he should be a great fantasy play for your lineup. On Sunday. All right, folks, that covers it this week for California speedway, our current points leader again is kiss my. What? We have a total of 421 players in the league looks like only 290 active. We might have to do some thinning of the herd there. Okay, so it was a simple week cut and dry. Hope y'all had a good race at Daytona. As usual, I will be putting out over at Toby Christie dot com.
"auto club" Discussed on The Final Lap
"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

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything millions of Americans use wearable devices that track how much they move how much they eat how. Well, they sleep how their blood pressure changes many insurance companies offer incentives to use these high tech trackers. But is your better health really what they're buying as they collect your data? Stephanie on Neil reports. Okay. You guys ready? Khaki Clinton Nelson Costa Mesa California is heading out on a walk with her two dogs Kona a boxer and max a small white dog of questionable pedigree ARC's with eager enthusiastic. Okay. But he'll Clooney Nelson says she rarely engaged in regular exercise, especially after a long day at work, but about three years ago, her employer the auto club of southern California made her enter colleagues and offer she couldn't refuse Donna Fitbit. Walk every day and get up to three hundred dollars off her yearly health insurance premiums. I thought why don't I try this? Maybe it will motivate me, and it really did this year. An estimated six million workers worldwide will receive wearable fitness trackers for workplace wellness programs. Many of these voluntary programs offer employees free or discounted wearable trackers and annual financial incentives that range from about one hundred dollars to more than two thousand dollars depending upon the company for Clooney Nelson. The incentive money does the trick. It. Encourage you to get up and move. I mean, how many times do you get to the end of the day? And you think gosh, I didn't really get it from my desk at all today. Encouraging workers to get fit makes financial sense says United Healthcare spokesman, we'll Shanley the health insurance giant offers employer. Sponsored plans that promote three walking goals with an easy to remember acronym. It's called fit frequency intensity and tenacity. Those who each day moved frequently walk with moderate intensity, and log ten thousand steps can earn more than a thousand dollars a year toward healthcare spending. And Shanley says it's not just the already fit who are signing into the program the participation rates for people with chronic conditions. Especially people with diabetes is actually significantly higher than for people without those conditions, but just how much fitness trackers contribute. If at all to better health into lower healthcare spending. Isn't yet known among the studies that cast doubt on their effectiveness is one published by the university of Pittsburgh in two thousand sixteen. It found young adults who use fitness trackers lost less weight than those in a control group. Andrew boy teaches biomedical and health information sciences at the university of Illinois at Chicago. The clinicians are trying to figure out what is the most effective use of this technology in order to engage patients while Boyd urges caution before trading data for dollars. It's important to be aware of the type of information or tracker is revealing about your health. He says and to know exactly how it will be use your incentives could offer a clue if they're offering you two three times the amount of money that every other insurance company is offering you there's something else they value in the data that they're giving you the cash for for instance, he says if the Affordable Care Act is ever repealed. Insurers could use the fitness data that they're collecting today to deny you coverage based on a medical condition. Your tracker picks up United Healthcare's Shanley says his company collects only step data. The same goes for Oscar the tech driven health insurer that serves. The individual market senior. Vice president Sarah Weinberg says fitness tracking is done through Oscars app. Where customers are encouraged to log into other healthcare services that save them in the insure money. When people start engaging in step tracking. They engage in other parts of our product more than others do like Intel medicine, Kathy Clooney, Nelson says while she sometimes does worry about what could happen to the personal data her Fitbit collects she's grateful for the financial incentives that keep her walking at the office and at home. It's just that nudge, you know, get up and walk do something productive. And that kind of has been helpful for me for NPR news. I'm Stephanie O'Neil.
