"It's a very different track, but the speed does matter. So that just actual car speed, but the handling side of things, and really that's what we've missed at Indy the last couple years is the actual speed that the handling of the car has been quite good. So I want to say where I don't want to last year I felt like we were going to turn up and be really competitive, so I'm not going to predict. And up here, I just say quietly confident. We've because I felt like we worked so hard in the off season last year, but I'd say we've done the same again. And we will all be scratching our heads if this year we're not competitive. So we'll see how it plays out and we'll just creep up on it slowly and not I'm not going to say anything. I'm just going to leave it at that. Let me ask you an honest question. Do people show their hands at the open test or not? Like let's just be truthful. Like, do they go there and say, I'm going to give it everything we've got, or I'm not going to hold some stuff back. I, you know, I've never got a good indication from open tests. Honestly, because you don't know what people are doing. You don't know who I mean, you've got toe fields and all that, so you can see in speeds, but leading final practice before qualifying before they turned up the boost for that Friday for qualifying practice. You know, I was confident we'd be fast because for more the analysis we did on all the lone speeds, it looked like that. But as soon as we turned up the booze suddenly we were off the pace, so it's so hard to tell. You can't tell. And it qualifying does actually mean a lot of these days because there's just not as many yellows, the field is way thicker, like you have, it's hard to pick a bad team and a bad driver, honestly, out of the field and everyone's kind of doing their job on race day, so it's not easy to just get through the field to get to the front. It does matter. Ultimate speed with the boost turned up. So see what we got. Hey, well, before we let you go, we tried to get Ryan Blaney to bet with you of who would be the first number 12 Team Penske driver to win this year. Do you want to throw in a wager? Maybe a beer, maybe a lunch, something like that. First winner, first winner, first loser buys. Launch would be good at epic steak. Once your epic steakhouse, which is, by the way, for everyone else in the country, not in the Charlotte area, a very expensive steakhouse. You'll take that, right? You'll take that. I want you to take your Internet connection from your side of the Lake Norman to Ryan satellite Norman. That would be helpful. Yeah, that's bad. That's okay. He lives on a farm. It's all good.

"Yeah, starting my foundation a couple years ago and two, three years ago and so we mainly work with the Alzheimer's association and some person with our fan on the grandchild. My grandfather had Alzheimer's pretty bad and passed away from it and it's just a bad disease to let someone go through just some of mine is just deteriorating over time. And it's hard to watch as an outside perspective, but it's really hard for that person to go through. You know, not recognizing your family, not knowing, you know, just slowly losing grip on kind of reality and what something simplest to you is just not simple anymore. So we wanted to pair up with Alzheimer's association kind of help out that whether it's raising awareness or funds and so that's been a lot of work, but it's been really humbling and need to meet a lot of people. And this year we worked with UPMC. University of Pittsburgh medical center up in Pennsylvania. You know that brain health concussions, things like that. So it's been a lot of fun. We're sending to fellows to school to kind of get their training to open up their own facilities, whether it's in the Charlotte area or wherever they want. So a lot of brain health that we're working on and it's been really neat to meet a lot of people that have been pioneers in that industry and a lot of stuff kind of carried over to our side of NASCAR concussions and things like that and symptoms and after we work towards helping that out. So it's really neat. You can find out a lot about it if you go to the Ryan Blaney family foundation website. And yeah, we'd love to both everyone check it out and we'll keep on going with it. All right, appreciate the time once again, where Ryan Blaney, you got another notch on the final app scorecard here between you and Justin Allgaier. I appreciate the time and good luck throughout the playoffs. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me. Like us at Facebook dot com slash the final lap. Like us..

"Currently in Atlanta, heading to Charlotte soon and every point in between, I guess. Yeah, yeah. And you know, it's going to be fun. This has been a good journey for us so far. You always go into a road trip, not knowing how the kiddo is going to do. We took our dogs with us as well. That's always our dogs aren't the best at situations like that. So we were really nervous about that. But everybody did great. So far, in Atlanta, we're almost there. We're about a four hour drive away. Just waiting for the moving stuff to get there for us to head that way. Everybody's done good. So it's been a really good trip so far. We're very excited and it's going to be fun. Awesome. How about that Ryan Blaney interview? We talked Star Wars. We talked playoffs. We talked next gen car. I packed a lot in those ten minutes. You did. You usually do, and you did yet again. So I'm proud of you. You did a good job. It's awesome to hear Ryan Blaney on the show yet again as he chases just an all guy as the all time. Most interviewed person on this show. He was very interested to know that and wants to be on more now, so that's cool. Yeah, that is good, so maybe we'll be hearing more Ryan Blaney in the near future. We'll see. We'll see, but it's always good to get the drivers involved in our little inside stuff here on the show. Yeah. Because they're busy, they don't realize they don't expect us to say stuff like that. And they have so many interviews they do during the year anyway that I'm sure it's hard for them to really keep track mentally of which ones they've been on a lot. Even if they've talked to you a lot, have a good report and stuff. I'm sure they don't fully realize how many times they've actually talked to one single person or one single show. I'm sure that makes them feel like, oh man, this is actually significant. I've done quite a few. This is pretty cool. Yeah, yeah. I think your only reason why Justin is leading is because he before Ryan Blaney was even on driver. So, yeah. At least in the upper things of NASCAR, as Justin was down in the Xfinity series, then he went to cop, back down, et cetera. Yeah. Yeah, definitely. But, you know, I mean, it's been good, because even though he has hit all those different things, all guy are always seems like he likes being a part of this show. So that's awesome. Definitely, definitely. All right, let's get into some news of the week from tobee Christie dot com. We begin with Brandon Jones back at JGR. Yeah, so this was the big question mark because there's a lot of change going on.

"Yeah, we got to test at the robo for a couple of days right after the race. But that's the Monday and Tuesday after that Sunday race. And it was cool to go to a track where you just ran on in the current car and run the next gen or you can kind of can really pick out the differences of it for discretion your mind. And so I thought it was really nice. You know, you kind of work through some bugs in it. You have to fix or kind of clean up you have that with any kind of new car, just some quality issues and parts and stuff like that, the best way to kind of go about it. But I thought once we got rid of it, the car was really great. I thought it ran also on those road courses, you can hustle the car really good. They just handled a lot different just the whole base feel of the race car with it being a completely different type of car. I mean, there's no truck on the track bar. It's this new car's independent rear suspension. So we've never had the gearbox is way different. So everything is just a driver's learning something new from what we've done for a long long time. So but I really did enjoy it. I look forward to testing it more in the off season here. I know we have some lined up and can't wait to get some more laps in it and see what's got for next year. Is there any one particular issue or maybe a small list that you handed over to NASCAR that you'd like to see in the new car? Yeah, I mean, there's a couple things, you know, just with, you know, everything's new, right? It's all coming from different manufacturers. So we had some steering issues, like the sparing box and stuff like that, which kind of kind of shaken and rattling and I think we got that a little bit better throughout the test just fine tune in it. And I know we're working on count of the cooling inside the cars. It's pretty hot in there compared to what we got now. So often we're continuing to work on. You don't want to get any summer races in your cooking turkeys inside the race car. So if we could make some gains on that, but no, I think there was little things and NASCAR's been good at kind of listening to the team to drivers on how to all make it better because if we're going to do this thing right, you know, it takes everybody to give their input and everyone's got to be happy. So I think we're working towards that pretty well. All right, wrapping up our time with Ryan Blaney here. One more question I gotta ask you about your Ryan Blaney family foundation. Tell us more about that. Started my foundation a couple of years ago and two, three years ago and so we may work with the Alzheimer's association and some person with our family and the grand my grandfather had Alzheimer's. Pretty bad and passed away from it and it's just it's a bad disease to let someone go through just some mind is just deteriorating over time. And it's hard to watch as an outside perspective, but it's really hard for that person to go through. You know, not recognizing your family, not knowing, you know, just slowly losing grip on kind of reality and what something simplest to you is just not simple anymore.

"We could do stuff if we wanted, but they do enough on their own. They send a blast out to everybody that really shouldn't have been seen, which was kind of funny. Yeah, they don't really need stirring up any more travel on them. Chase Elliott, who's probably a fan of this package because he's on the good side of things with Hendrick motor sports there. Yes, and number 7 this week, again, you kind of expect a little better than that for him, especially when you look at the top here, you look at a couple of his teammates up there at the very, very front of the field. But I think he'll take 7th and a clean day at Texas Motor Speedway. This is a track that doomed his championship hopes a couple of seasons ago. 7th place finish puts him in a good position to possibly advance to that championship for if he can keep getting some good results down the stretch here. Ryan Blaney, or as my kids like to say, Ryan inside laney, you know, from the cars movies. Yeah, of course. 6th place finish gets him second in the standings, which is interesting. That he's right there in the mix. I want a difference a year is made for Ryan Blaney. He was the guy that was just the perennial first round exit from the playoffs. I just had such rough luck to Bristol and Richmond each year and this year he was able to put it together. That with Darlington as well. And got through that first round. That was the big the big question mark for him. Once he got through there now, he has really put together some really good runs and with those three wins he has this year that just gives him so many bonus points every time we restart one of these rounds. If he gets good finishes, like he did last week. This week at Texas, then he starts working his way up to playoff rankings very quickly and it's good to see for Ryan Blaney. It's awesome to have him on the show this week. I'm sure he'll talk about some of that, but a 6th place finish is just what he needs heading into these last couple of races of this round. Some guy named Kevin Harvick, then he got Brad Keselowski who finishes fourth in the race, but still, on the outside looking in, which is interesting. Yeah, yeah, Brad Keselowski, he's had speed. He just hasn't had the luck and he's had some weird mental errors throughout the season that have doomed where he is in the rankings currently. But if he can put together another couple of races like this one to close this thing out, he has an outside shot at moving on to the championship for is a guy who's been there before, and it would be no surprise to see Brad Keselowski there. But at the same time, it would kind of be a surprise just because he's had so many things where he shot himself in the foot throughout the year. So if he's able to stop those issues and put it all together, it'll be fun to see. Christopher Bell in third place there with his third straight top ten. That's going to get some notice. Yeah, Christopher Bell as this season has gone on has really kind of come to life. I'm excited to see what he can do next year as far as the playoffs go, because it was nice to see him in there this year. And I think had he moved on to the next round he could have been dangerous, but it'll be fun to see how they do next year. And the follow-up to this first playoff birth for them, but he's definitely had speed at several places this year. And it'll be fun to see if they can get that going next year. I think Chris rubel will be one of the guys that may sneak up and surprise people as a championship contender next year. Another guy is William Byron. He gets knocked out of the playoffs, and he could be down in the dumps and down on himself and depressed. No, they come back stronger than ever in second place. They are ones to contend each and every week and I think they are building something for next year. I agree. I think William Byron is a guy that people really should be penciling in as the guy who could pull off to a weird Kyle Larson season like Kyle Larson's had this year. William Byron is really put together a lot of top results like you said 11th top 5 this season. This is a second place finish lots of runner ups, lots of third places. He won at homestead. It's been a very good year for William Byron. This is a huge step forward for his growth process in the sport. He's got the crew chief Rudy fugal that he's very comfortable with. And I really think good things are going to happen for William Byron in that 2014 next season as well. And that rhymes with bugle. It does. I don't know how relevant. Yes, it does. It's relevant to me. Victory lane is where we're headed. The amazing season just continues. Kyle Larson, 2021, let's hear from him. Yeah, it's awesome. You know, I mean, we had a good point lead or whatever from the cutoff going into it, but still, you know, Harvick had his issues last year and didn't make the final force. That will always be on my mind, but we have fast, fast car today, and you know, we had a good couple stages, so even if I didn't come out with the lead or the win or whatever I wanted to play it smart and take what I could get, but I got good shows for me homie every restart and allowed me to get clear into the lead into one every time and then do some blocking for a few laps. So fun on all those restarts and we had a great race car to allow me to be aggressive with the blocks and fast two to stay out in front of William. And more from Kyle Larson, the dominant driver of 2021. Obviously, your Brad had taken the top on the other restarts behind William and Brad's a really good pusher. So I was nervous about that and honestly, I was like when they told us we're going one to go. I was like, please, Brad, take the bottom, take the bottom, take the bottom. And he took the bottom because I was worried, I'm sure you guys all write a story about this, but I was worried about bell being.

"Yeah, this week we've stopped in Atlanta at Christa's sister's house. They're letting us stay here for a good week. Yeah, as you're a huge Dodgers fan and they're locked into a battle with the braves right now. That's right. But yeah, no, it's funny. So we're here and they've been very welcoming and I'm actually down on the basement right now recording this show with you. Pretty good stuff. All right. Basement recording is on. I'm dwelling in the basement. I am freaking out. Just freak it out. Why? Because there's only three races left. Yeah, it's getting pretty close. And for us, that means we're going to have to start doing a lot of hard work very soon. A lot more talking about nothing. Yeah, which we are pretty good at. But yeah, it's not ideal. Well, you're going to be in Charlotte this year for the off season. Are you going to be like roaming around the garage area or the shop areas and stuff? I think I'll be roaming around a lot of different areas and should probably find us some pretty decent content. This off season. Okay, just, you know, sharp high tobacco. Guys. Can I see what you're doing there and your top secret lab? Let me see how you put one of these next gen cars together guys. Can I take detailed notes and video? Preferably the video part. They won't mind, right? No, certainly not. That's what it is. Heck. What are they going to do? I mean, they have to be pretty specced out by or from NASCAR anyway. What secret stuff could they be doing? Well, that's a good point. A lot of the stuff at this point and you saw that next gen test the role. Some of the underfunded teams that typically underfunded teams were running right up there with the big dogs as far as the lap times on the speed charts. I think a lot of teams are very excited about what the next gen provides as far as evening the playing field. I know we've talked about a lot of these cars over the years, we're going to even the playing field. They never do, but this one, as far as the chassis and the engines are all pretty much the same at this point because they're all coming from three basic manufacturers. Whether it be rauch hendrik RCR or TRD, so at this point, the engines are pretty close to the same. You've got three manufacturers there. You've got one manufacturer for the chassis and all other stuff. All the bodies are going to be composite bodies. So there's no real wiggle room there either. This is a pretty good opportunity for somebody to smaller teams to possibly grasp a stranglehold on a decent spot in the field next year. We talked to Ryan Blaney coming up in the program I asked him about the next gen car. He's got a few concerns, but one of which seems to be common among drivers is hot. Yeah. That's the thing they've been really trying to figure out, even at the last test they did, they cut slits in the windows and the front and the back just hoping to let some of that air out. But we'll see what they do. They definitely got some roads to pave there as far as the heat inside the cars. Definitely don't want hot drivers. No, because it's already pretty hot as it is. We've been talking about just crazy climbing temperatures the last few years is anyway. So if we go above that and I was hearing that things were melting to the floorboard and the test previous to the roval test, I think over at Daytona they were running stuff was melting to the floorboards. You definitely don't want that kind of heat. No, no, definitely not. I mean, if it's a 140 inside the car is currently, I can't imagine it being much hotter than that. Yeah. But if it is, you don't want to be in there. That's for sure. No, I mean, these are the superstars of the sport and you're treating them like as Ryan Blaney calls them turkeys. As turkeys, yes. You know, that's so phrase it's not used very often anymore. No, turkeys. Well, I think it's so hard it's an oven, you know? Well, yeah. But let's call people turkeys more often. Right. Well, it is almost Turkey season. That's true. It's a good point. Coming up on it. NASCAR, Cup Series racing. From your former home, your love, Texas. Speedway. Yes, long time, home track for me. I've seen races from every possible vantage point at that track. So yeah, it always feels weird, you just dumped them, left them, said no more. I'm outta here. Well, hey, things have to happen. I was doing it for the greater good for the show. So that's what it's all about. That's true. I mean, you're going to be right in the heart of it, driving distance to a lot of tracks. Yeah, lots of tracks. All the shops are right there. So there's going to be a lot of things that this is a big thing for us on the show for me with my website. There's going to be a lot of things that this is a positive for. Awesome. Awesome. I can't wait to see what unfolds. Let's run things down ten to one.

Because i'm not really sure what i thought the window really was and you know i've seen myself. Obviously it's on happened alive yesterday. When i was watching it on nbc. And you know. I heard the jar brad. In i'll dean was purposeful by any means and some listeners. May be kind of felt that way. I don't think so. I heard the audio from austin apologizing. I know people to like this like the point. The finger because controversy is what people like in sports. I just use kind of one of those racing deals. I don't really see any fault on either side but also can't tell you that i'm not continue to scratch my head. Was they were so far past. Start finish line. That's what really struck me. There as you said carbon was. Okay do today. What i did yesterday. Which is gonna lick to my left at two drivers your tell me what happened because i couldn't figure it out yesterday. Know watching it yesterday. I said the only thing that i thought that austin really had a major beef about is why is brackets lousy. Still in my panel. This far down the straightaway. I had a conversation with brad little bit ago. And it all got a lot more clear to me. He thought because the information coming to him because the sem day that he says was a lap behind he thought he was coming to the one to go at the end of the state so he thought they had left to go so he was trying to hang on the right rear quarter panel pulling back to try to passing back in turn one so that all makes perfect sense because he was my world. Why are you so close. And then it's rough when you go below that white line. Those big bumps also car came up a little bit. I think you hit those bumps. it came up trying to sidra him to get back to and get into turn want to try to get back by and he thought they were coming to one to go into sage and after he told me that. I'm like oh well that clears it up now. Understand that makes way more sense understanding that information. Well it makes more sense. It's still is not good for also now veasley in that situation. Whatever may have happened pete. How about this aside from that. What were the fans talking about. As far as the racing this there was a big change to put this package together to make the racing more competitive only type tracks. Are they liking what they're seeing. It's interesting dj. Because i don't have the official tally but it really felt like with bagman either smarty. The majority of the listeners really like the racing mentally. It's different to your point. We know it's a different package. We know the horse our is is lower. We know that drafting become such a big part of this. You know we heard some of the drivers. Saying i mean the where the race ryan blaney saying. I really don't like the rates this way. But this is how you have the race but the end of that race. The last ten laps more just really really in my opinion a lot. Recently you guys have over. The years at michigan international speedway it was there was going from start to finish their yesterday where i personally thought it was a really good race so i think the fans again. A lot of them are split. I think social media kinda here. One thing. But i can tell us on sirius nascar radio. A lot of folks really liked that race and they were surprised. Rhyme lady was in position to win the race at the end on. The a lot of people had lady as their winter that race. But you know what he did everything he had to do to to victory lane and turned out that way for him yesterday afternoon. There and the irish shells i will say that What i liked about a dj was that it still took good cars. What i mean by that is sometimes you go to talladega. And i don't want to call it completely up in the air because that's unfair to the talent of the drivers who are out there doing job but immediately i think the equipment is more equal there than any other race track and michigan. It wasn't equal. There was still fast cars and slow cars. I think that helped me enjoy the race because not anyone could lead. You still have to fight your way to the front. Can i say this about what drivers say about the raising. And i appreciate you saying that. This is what we have to work with jeopardy. You'll remember back many years ago but as we were transitioning from by slot cars to radio tires. Did any of us like what a radio tire felt like. We had to work with me and ain't so we went job the best that we could. Well that's how i look at it. I mean they make the rules. Nascar does right. The drivers have to work with those rules are gonna drive over. They have to drive hoochies at the set. The cars.

"From the restart the flag and this is the man that pulled it off ryan blaney rhyme in first of all. Thanks for joining us. Those last ten laps or intense. What were they see. You said it. thank me. It was very intense. just start off getting opportunity to race for the win there You know we're going to be fourth and that's kind of beauty the choose rule right You know taking a shot at at you know. Maybe it's not the preferred lane but you're giving yourself a shot to win and then we couldn't pass up the front row and got a great push by the eighteen. I appreciate. I appreciate kyle for you know sticking with the bumper to my back bumper there and giving us again shove into one and we had good enough car to hold those guys off the end even though it was really tough kind of playing the game and but surprised the team We were not very competitive. You know as far as winning car early on in the race. Gordon really went to work on it and i can't back those guys. How cool to win in michigan for ford and midst in the to get a second one of the season so ryan. We were just talking before you came on about how intense race looked. What was it like inside of the car yesterday. Yeah was intense You know you guys talked earlier that you know there was a moment in time. We're handful cars lead They can get away from each other. you know. I don't see that at michigan. Usually you know we'll be bunched up on a restart but it kind of will spread out and it was just really intense racing. Made restarts super important. I mean they're reporting everywhere Each weekend but You know when you have to to really think about what lane going to choose how you're going to be committed to the guy in front of you Get up through the gears. Good and just do that. First lap or to clean Tried out to break your momentum really sex you up so very intense racing michigan People there and then they were really excited. But yeah crazy racing in there. I mean it's almost like speedway you know you talk about you know talladega and daytona. That place has so much grip if so wide near. There's so much on throttle time. You have to raise it kinda like speedway and we did a good job by spotted..

"Legendary figure. Al davis was owner of the oakland raiders at the time before they became the los angeles raiders. And now they lost vegas rates but anyway. I digress. al davis was famous for coining. The phrase just win baby. And that is what ron blaney has done this year. He's won twice but that leads the pack at teen penske. Jeff hammond is he now. The lead sled dog at team. Penske well if you look at the numbers you've gotta kinda debating that yes he is but when you look at the overall i think performance from leading racism being in a position to command respect right. Now i'd say no. He still is not a dominating force week in and week out because this even like yesterday he hung around and in the end he got eight laps in their leading. This relatedness race. But he got the. W and i think that's where he's weakest is it and and it may not be training could be ford as a whole because they're still not force against chevrolet like they have been in the past so combination of all the above. No ryan is not the lead dog right now. Even though brad's leaving he is not going to surpass. In my opinion. You're joya ghana brad. We've talked about this before. I feel like ryan blaney has gotten a lot of conversation over the years more than what winning six races should get you am i am i wrong. I don't think so. But i do think he's been competitive. I mean you look at his career and pretty much every season. he's been top fiving about a third of the year even though he'd only made single trips to victory lane he's still been a part of the conversation. He's lead twenty three hundred laps in his career. Which is a lot you know. So he has spent time out front. And when you're running out front you're going to get talked about when you're in the top five you're going to get talked about granted. Having six wins in five seasons. Now isn't the same numbers that we had seen. Other people put up a really outside of chase elliott. Are we seeing anyone else. Put up those types of numbers of the people who have come in and about the same time in the sport. Well it took chase elliott. What one hundred races before he finally won and then he broke through in a big way. I like eriksson as you look at. What brian blain is done where he sits as we head to daytona. Wrap up the regular season two wins. He secured a nice spot. Can we look at that team and go okay legitimate championship team or legitimate team. That can get into the round of eight. Yeah i mean. I think You know he certainly not a favorite of. That's for sure. I agree with everything. That jeff hammond said about where he sits within that team. I think if you look at yesterday A lot of of of what he to get that win was was luck you know he was able to get the inside lane. He got a huge huge push from eighteen. We saw all day long that it really depended on if you had a good pusher behind you and he just so happened to have a good pusher behind him Granted a win is a win and he has to now in that fantastic. But i'm not sure we can yet call him You know a legitimate title contender Or even a favourite heading into this this playoff season. We'll have to see what happens. You know things sometimes. Tides change and You know his team could step it up and they could. They could Tape over that Title but as of right now. I don't see that happening. I do want to add one thing though to the question that you pose to brad about why there was so much talk about him. I think obviously you have to look at his family lineage. But you also have to look at the fact that he was able to put the wood brothers back in victory lane in it narrow where they hadn't been in victory lane very much and i think that was something that really put him on the map as well before he moved over to that full-time and he rod good point. Also think his personality. He's got a certain charm. He knows his way around social media. I think he capitalized with his long running friendship with bubble wallace's not hurt him. And also there's there's a lot of factors there and you know good looking fellow so long hair i think. Does he have brown on. This is like the great bill elliott. You say after he'd win a race. Well it's a combination. So i don't know why remember that brad galli team penske right now is still brad keselowski. Joey logano and ryan blaine. Who just wanted michigan. When i say those three names to any of them pop out to you as legitimate title contenders for this year. I don't know that you can deny any of them. Look what happened last year's playoffs team. Penske everything worked out for them because they were the best on the short tracks. And we've got five races with short-track package actually more than that because we actually have it at darlington. We've got bristol. we've got richmond. we got phoenix. We've got martinsville They were clearly dominant there last year. And i think they're showing up again this year when it comes to that the playoffs are going to have a much different. Look than i feel what we saw throughout most of the summer. and if they're kinda hitting a good stride with that absolutely. I mean they two cars in the championship round last year and You know brackets. Laskey came pretty close to winning a second championship in that. So you're telling me there's a chance. I think there's better than a chance that's fascinating. That's that is the eternal glass. Half full brad gillian. That's why we love him so much coming up little race. Track tucked away in the north carolina heels. Jeff hammond spent some time there over the weekend. We'll talk.

Nascar drivers could just not even care about road courses. they go. Oh there's two of my show up. I don't care. We don't even have a playoff format doesn't matter not a big deal anymore. They've got like seven thousand of them now so you can't just ignore them on the schedule anymore. And here's ryan blaney to talk about that. I think it just makes everybody put a bigger emphasis on the road quiz program. You know we're not just going to a year And then he didn't you know before the role came about. You didn't have any of the playoffs so it's like. Oh these are two races year you know. Obviously they're big win them. But i don't think teams put as much emphasis on them as far as now. We have seven now and one of them's in the playoffs so really close together. You know it's nice to have back to back this weekend or the next two weeks so i think it makes the drivers really pay attention more to it You know really spend a lot of time here the simulator. That's been doing stuff this morning so we spent a lot of time here just working on on the road for stuff because they are very important. I mean there's.

The water is really something off the really nice in the building in location with prime time but It was not not worth it. I don't think not worth hold on my favorite part of that story. Is that the guy who races probably the most. Is it a mustang. That you're driving you you're you're with ford mustang trumpster. Yeah so they roll of you you drive. Probably the most souped up mustang that exists in the world. And then you get a ford fusion which is completely out of the of the spectrum. I don't think mustang when a bit in the car that were there. I mean there was i remember. I pulled up all night. I've been wrong by the worst part.

Welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me and Man yeah those were good memories those up there working. Maybe guys knows it was very strange. Because you know.

That we watched was the indy five hundred from last year. Which was there was an insane crash and like there was gasoline and you were involved and everyone. We were all like we were. I don't know if we have the stomach for the sport man. It was way too intense. You know they're putting you every every sport every profession has its unique things about it right. I mean no matter what it is you to be as four but Yeah it's just something. I grew up. My dad raised the for a long time. Like my and my grandfather do so. I grew up watching racing enjoying it and and been really fortunate enough to make a career out of it. like my family is done so And his led the cool opportunities going to crew.

"On the final with us. Today is austin syndrich. Welcome back to the program of great. Thanks for having me all right. So twenty twenty. Xfinity series champion That's got a nice ring to it right. Yeah without a doubt. I mean you work in an entire year. Obviously this year's been been crazy and trustful for a lot of people and a lot of different ways and Obviously rise to the occasion on on on the right weekend is is is ideal but The the work put in all season. It definitely makes you gratifying. So i take us through this closing laps. What was going through your head. Obviously we had. We pulled away in the lead with older tires there and I thought that was the hard part and turned out You know caution with three to go Having to come in and put on tires and that we are at a pretty big deficit I think that was the right call to make but putting yourself by maple on on on the offense and Having having to make two laps and make it happen when a championship in the with with with our competition definitely wasn't gonna be easy and putting a three wide off at turn four to win the championship Was was pretty cool. I thought i thought we all wreck for for a moment there and Definitely definitely dramatic finish and Glad glad we had to earn it but Definitely go out. It will all work out. What What did you do to celebrate. So yeah i've been trying to do the maximum obviously The different year As far as getting people together and enjoying things with that'd be with my guys do people shop or or or just my friends and family so That that part's obviously been a bit more of a challenge but Saturday night after the race. I can promise you. The the twenty two team had a great time and Major everybody got back to their rooms. Nice and safe but Otherwise it was it was. It was a fun night. looking forward to To enjoy during the season and coming back even harder and twenty twenty one. What are some of the things. That are a champion has to do during the week. Afterwards is it. Is it more than you expected. i think it's a lot of things that i wanna do myself It's it's. It's not things that that other people will put me up to as far as Like i said. I've had to be very creative in the last couple of days. Far as trying to figure out. Like i said what the maximum is that i can do to to to enjoy championship with with my team But also making sure i don't even turn you don't wanna championship every day and It's really difficult to do this in. Obviously we had the opportunity. Try new again next year but Trying to make sure that that. I don't miss anything almost anyone and I enjoy the moment obviously You're going to be kind of like the the face of the sport or the the face of the xfinity series for next year. What does it mean to be a champion and carry that flag. I think anyone who's watch watch series for the last couple of years. Watch me grow develop at the driver. Obviously i have my one one season in the truck series beforehand but that was it and As far as my career. So i've come a long way in a short amount of time and and i think Anyone who's watched those races that seeing that Has it's hopefully been able to create that. And as as seen this team really rally around me and in my development and obviously it's been a lot of fun to be able to do that and go on win races. And and then put ourselves in contention all year so it obviously Gives us more to look forward to. Obviously there's going to be great competition next year. I excited excited to see the full line. Up of drivers that We get to compete against and Looking forward to doing doing the most. We can't to make it back to phoenix and try and contempt for another championship now. Obviously every year. There's a big awards banquet at the end of the year this year. It's going to be a little different than can be more of a an awards show. I'm sure you're still looking forward to it because you're going to be honored. Their yeah i just want to get back all hours. Upset at other people's banquets watching other people talk. I want to do the talk. Our team to get the talking but It's it's obviously a challenge but No it's hopefully. Everyone can tune into that. I i got got wrapped up with with my obligations for that Just just yesterday actually so Looking forward to seeing that. It's also fun to to to to share that with with the other. Competitors are in shown creative while we were in nascar Production dairy and talk and talk to him about his race and and obviously Obviously chase elliott pretty pretty cool for the sport there and Obviously very well deserved for him and his family's well. We're on with xfinity series champion for twenty twenty austin syndrich and every year penske. Does this big olympic style kind of stuff with all their drivers and and and and crew members and stuff like that. This year was dodgeball How'd you do was it fun. It looked awesome while. I'm gonna brag on myself here for a minute because In p when. I was in middle. School and high school dodgeball was my thing. Okay i i don't know why i i obviously love it but For whatever reason. I just have a knack for it so When when they decided they were going to dodge ball with all the penske drivers i was. I was pretty keen so the game. They go to penske social channels. They haven't shared up on there. But i was the last man standing for a very long time Got a lot of people. I got blaney out by far the most athletic driver on our team pretty. I got him out early in the game But yeah it's great fun it. It's it's so cool. Because we're such a diverse group of drivers. As far as the different race series and and you know different nationalities and obviously we really different personalities. So that's always a really fun amick and I hope everyone enjoys that kind of stuff. I'm sure it's a big A team bonding kind of thing as well. Hey later today you've got a alive. Qna online. Are you are you nervous with some of the fans might ask you know. I don't think so Obviously we've got like said the life you and eight six six thirty on penske social channels on facebook and Looking forward to seeing the turnout we get for that. Because it'll be my crew chief. Brian wilson talking about Pretty much our season that race. Everything that's come down to it. Obviously brian i ever really greatly relationship and Look look forward to take jabs. Adam if i can't tonight what are some of the things are gonna be doing in the off season Both to relax and maybe even stay sharp for next year. Yeah i'm i'm still working on that. But i made a long list on the flight home from phoenix as far as things don't want to do and i i started to realize i'm probably not going to get everything done. I'd say top of that list is continue to work on my project car. I've got an eighteen ninety three volvo station wagon that i've been doing a Coyote swap was basically putting the the drive train. The the motor from a ford mustang. So go to five hundred horsepower. Engine in a in a ninety station wagon is has been no small feat. I've been working on this thing for for two years. Now doing all the work on myself so it's been really fun to to learn that Learn that side of things i. I think it's made me a better driver. And the obviously it's a it's a great pastime. Okay that's one of the most unique rebuilds. I think i've ever heard what's the goal for that. Car the goal is to be stupid or noxious. It's gonna race track. It's just it's just supposed to be loud stupid and fast. The car actually ways Significantly less than most most rijkaard's. It's actually smaller than you think being a station wagon. It's only twenty pounds. So a couple of hundred pounds lighter than most modern cars so nothing's gonna rip so Hopefully i get tight and have some fun with it so looking looking to make a pretty big debt absolutely now over the next year and a half or so. You've got a lot of things plan. Obviously going xfinity series racing next year. Defending that The championship and you're also going to have some cup series races Have they decided that your schedule yet. No it's definitely ongoing. Obviously gotta make sure things work logistically and and try and figure out the the right thing whether it be my development or having partners on the car but I'm excited for for that opportunity to to learn at the high level But i'd say if there is a race that i wanna do They're they're going cup racing at road. America on july fourth weekend is going to be amazing so I'm hoping that i can get to do that. One that one's definitely at the top of my list but Overall just just happy to happy to have that kind of an opportunity happy have the groundwork laid out for for for for my development over the next couple of years that's very challenging thing to to navigate in the sport especially the drivers so Looking forward to taking advantage of that opportunity and make the most of your drivers don't have the opportunity of knowing. Hey after next year. I'm going cup racing. They don't usually know that You still got to keep the eye on the ball for the community series. But i'm sure you're still excited about twenty twenty two. Yeah without a doubt to have that opportunity. Go race for the wood brothers in in in twenty twenty two. Obviously that's a that's a family. That has a huge legacy in the sport and The opportunity to to build on that legacy is something i definitely. Don't take lightly. I i love the history of the sport but also the the wood brothers eddie. Len modern john. Those guys who have been big supporters of mine Since since i've really come into nascar so excited to get to work with them here in the next couple the next couple of months after after twenty twenty one and Really really start the next chapter of my career with those guys so Very grateful for that as an opportunity. But i really really focused on defending title. It'd be be great taylor to walk out the as two time champions but a lot of work that needs to be done in a lot of hard competition to the face before then all right for sure last question any plans for the rolex twenty four working on that man that's that's always grind. I mean that is that is a given so Definitely definitely doesn't hurt to in the off season In style like this but Yeah i i wanna i wanna do the rolex again This past year was actually the first year in in three years that i hadn't done it so actually spotted the race for one of the penske cars which being outside in the middle of the night for twenty four hours is enough motivation for for trying to find drive the next year. I don't know what is so I'm i'm excited to try and try and navigate that I want to win that race. Really bad that's that's that's where i've been really passionate about for a long time a lot of miles in a lot of hours in so Still still on the lookout for for the right combination and Hopefully hopefully things down before the holidays. All right. he is the twenty twenty extended series champion. Austin syndrich thanks as always for being on the final

They were what, 34 wide Man that was wild wild finish so tight 0.7 seconds, 0.7 seconds. Double 07 Blaney going James Bond on that. Translate that time in the distance. Blaney edges out Ricky Stenhouse Jr by roughly a foot if that, so if that was your first introduction and NASCAR, if you tuned in to see how the sport might respond, you got a great response. And an amazing race like the cliche thing would be to say that bubble. Wallace or NASCAR asshole was the real winner yesterday, but it's true. Even though Wallace finished 14th he was the star of the show. He made a statement with how he ran during the race, and he made an even bigger statement after the race when he took off his mask, and he walked across the track to greet some new NASCAR fans. Who reportedly drove from Atlanta to Talladega for that race, wearing black lives, matter T shirts and pressing up against the fence so they could meet him. Father. I know you can hear me. But what a day Now, car rallies around you got dancing. Stand. Thank you. Run for you Today Field described today. This moment. This's probably most last moment right here. Proud to stand. Where are Matt and Carrie? A new face like the first time I hear from Atlanta. Sport is changing the deal that happened yesterday. So I'm not wearing my mask, but I wanted to show whoever was going to take away my smile. I'm going to keep on going..

2020 Daytona 500 ends in scary crash involving Ryan Newman

"Seven before I go any farther for those of you who went to bed early relatively early on Monday you made out of her the update on Ryan Newman very scary I'm not just scary looking crash but scary in reality crashed sometimes they look worse than they really are but in this case on the final turn at Daytona there and they're coming through the tri oval Ryan Newman got bumped from behind by Dave Blaney and then as he turned and made a you know made a right hand turn turn and slammed into the wall he's he's up there on the track and it's Corey love joy who comes in behind it kind of gets his nose underneath Newman's car and the car flipped up in the air and lands on its hood and then go sliding all the way from where it was all the way to the you know to the start finish line and across the finish line so he technically finished in fourth in the race believe it or not because his momentum carried him across the finish line but his car was completely mangled it was it was a pile of rubble there was fire all around if there was fuel spilling out of his vehicle was so badly damaged and he took a long time for them to get him out of the car it's a really scary even as Denny Hamlin ends up in victory lane and and there was a subdued celebration but I don't think they had any idea how serious it was with Ryan Newman it took a long time for them to get him out of the car and they were they they had to put the car back over so they could they could on trap them but they also you they put out the fire they brought in an ambulance they put a stretcher right next to the car that they put up these black screens all around and they required that media left pit road so they weren't allowing any media to be anywhere near and I I think that set off a lot of worst imagination and worst case scenario possibilities as it turned out Ryan was awake when they got him out of the cars we need help but there's now video out there and and I had gotten gotten a report a report I'd gotten a a text from a friend of mine who works for five Oct that the video crews had seen that he was awake and so we don't know anything else about his condition just that at least for a time when they pulled out of the car he was conscious which you know I was positive about hopeful but that he was rushed right to the trauma center at the Halifax Medical Center and then it was quiet for another hour at least in there was nothing which again sometimes leads people to to assume the worst thankfully around ten oh five or so eastern time there was an update from the executive vice president of NASCAR Steve o'donnell Ryan Newman is being treated at Halifax Medical Center he's in serious condition but doctors have indicated his injuries or non life threatening we appreciate your thoughts and prayers and ask that you respect the privacy of Ryan and his family during this time we appreciate your patience and cooperation and will provide more information as it becomes available this is the same with the NASCAR is used to stay with that Roush racing has used to stay with us all righty Newman's Twitter they're sticking to the same sex line statement so we don't know anything else about his injuries the extent of his injuries but that doctors have said his injuries are not life threatening so that's the best news is in serious condition I he's stable but we don't do anything else he could have very serious injuries but thankfully they're not life threatening so wait to hear something else from Halifax Medical Center hoping for something early on this Tuesday and a lot of fans obviously you're praying for I'm at dell worrying and and wanting to know if there's any updates so we just want to pass that along from NASCAR Virginie Hammadi with his second straight Daytona five hundred and it was a pretty incredible last lap of racing that was legit for most of it until they had that contact but he and his team owner Joe Gibbs were royally criticized for celebrating for being in victory lane for taking photos for the confetti and all that but I hope that people will cut them a little slack because the track is enormous in victory lane is not near where where they were attending to Ryan Newman and you know it if you know anything about Joe Gibbs he's classy he's he's a man of integrity he's kind of this is not a man who would be carelessly celebrating with wild abandon and and not being worried about another driver because he's been in NASCAR for a long time he's got drivers are in these positions all the time and so after the fact both Denny Hamlin and Joe Gibbs were we're trying to explain that they just they didn't know it's a weird balance of your excitement and happiness for yourself but obviously someone's health and their families you're bigger than any wind and in any sport so you know we're we're just hoping for the best I say to everybody out there some people may have sauces have all these guys are celebrating when there's a serious issue going on so hopefully I apologize there by but we really didn't know we got no winner circle and then that's when people told us later on the winner's circle so I wanted to explain that there were one so again I believe Joe gives deserves the benefit of the doubt because he's again a man of integrity that's all he's ever been whether he was a football whether he was in NASCAR this is a guy who really does care about the people who work for any cares about that just people in general is very

"And really really been influenced thing since they've been around isn't twelve and. To get to meet him. And just talk to them for ten fifteen minutes that was that was really cool just one on one. He's no joke. It'd be we'll talk about now his intensity level when he was playing even now I see him really intense. And that was that was cool. We gave him a body armor firesuits from what I ward Indianapolis. He wouldn't fit in it. But now super amazing guy trying to get them out to a race. But perfect guy for that brand go-getter and. I think that was that was really cool. So I I love watching him growing up, and I was cool to meet someone like that you get star struck with guys like that you try not to a little bit. When you when you really look. You know, when you watch those other athletes play when you were a kid now to to meet them when you're a little more grown up that was super cool to me. But you just try to be casual a nice to tomb. He was he was the same way with me, which was very very cool him. And last question, how do you plan to attack the new start finish line here at Phoenix? Yes, different. You know? It's really different. We only made a few laps there. And in the first practice discount. Your visual representation of everything is is way different like going down the new backstretch, which was the old French stretches. There's no grandstands there anymore. So that's that's kind of weird coming off that corner going on the frustration. Nothing's there. You're right. But I do like it. I was driving in this morning. And you kind of go over this big bridge and used to be able to just see the back of the grandstands. And now you see the whole front and is very open. I thought that was a really cool. Look kinda shows you that there's a racetrack here not just back of grandstands. So that was really cool. But yeah, I think not only the finish line is going to be interesting, but the re-start zone you're kinda right in the middle of the corner right in the middle of three and four. So it's gonna be weird. It's gonna be crazy. I'll be watching. You know, both races are going to see how it plays out. If you're like in the fifth or sixth back, you're going to be like getting into turn three by the time, the leaders go. So that'll be it'd be weird. I think tomorrow we're actually having some restart practice are going to allow some time to kind of get everything feeling right. So get a small idea before they throw us out there with forty of us.
