"Stay green. The NASCAR betting podcast. Here are your hosts. Todd fuhrman and racing analyst Chris wormy. Welcome into the stay green podcast. I bet the board production part of the one tree podcast network and boy do we have an outstanding show for you. A little bit unorthodox though is loyal staggering listeners have grown accustomed to us going stage one. Stage two and stage three with traditional breakdowns in terms of reviewing the race we saw last will of course have that, but for stage two today we have an outstanding interview and it went a hell of a lot longer than we anticipated with one of the best names in NASCAR. Larry McReynolds extremely generous and gracious with his time and stage three. Well, spoiler alert here. Chris and I are going to tell you why we don't like to bet Talladega, but that won't stop us from sharing a best bet. I'm your host Todd Furman joined as always by my steamed racing colleague and analyst Chris wormy. And worms are great interview we recorded earlier with Larry Mack. I can't wait to share it in stage two with all of our loyal listeners. Oh, it's awesome. I mean, I respect Larry's opinion as much as anybody. So it was really cool to kind of interact with him. Someone that we've seen on TV and someone who I've heated his advice multiple times during races and it's helped make me money. So it was just really cool to have someone that hate on some of the other people we've had. But Larry Mac is a really, really cool person to kind of interact with. And obviously, like you said, right before we start the show, he's forgotten more than we'll ever know about the sport of NASA. You know, it's a lot of fun to have mine. Exactly. It's such a different perspective. And we look at some of the guests that we've had already on the show. I mean, Danielle trotta has been in and around the sport as an analyst and a host on TV for years. I mean, bob podcast, his reputation speaks for himself as a journalist and how much he knows about the sport. And the inner workings of things. Of course, Brian Murphy right there getting dirt under his fingernails on the front line at Stewart Haas racing Regan Smith who spent time winning races at the top level in Xfinity. And here we finally have a crew chief. So the next step worm is we're going to have to get a team owner on in some capacity and I know we're aggressively pushing for that. So if any race fans out there do have access to team owners and current drivers by all means pass along their contact info we're happy to give them a little bit of airtime. Yeah, I'd love to have an owner on obviously we have one in mind that we think would be would be great for our listeners and especially for kind of the future of the sport. So hopefully we can kind of make that happen slowly but surely. Either way, man, Larry Mac was awesome. And great to have it. And we will get to that interview in a few, but as we always do for stage one, a brief recap of what we learned or maybe what we didn't learn this past weekend at Martinsville. And I'll be honest, watch that race in its entirety all 400 laps went back and watched it on one and a half times speed later that night. And I still sit here in the middle of the following week and couldn't tell you what cars were good, what cars were bad because I'm convinced we could have taken a car out of your garage, put it out there and clean air and there's a good chance that you could have let 300 laps yourself. Yeah, I put that out as a Twitter poll. Who is the best car? And not out of spite, like we didn't have Lars and it was just one of those things where Larson just kind of had the right strategy at the end. If you look throughout the race, there was a point when I thought Alex Bowman was going to win by 5 seconds. And so did other crew chiefs as well. They were very worried about the 48. There was other times when I was like, well, this is Denny's race. He's finally in control. And then it was Harvick's race. He's finally in control. And then you have someone like Joey Logano, who had a terrible car, end up finishing in that finishing second. So it was an up and down day. I thought chase Briscoe at times was really good. It was nice to see Stewart Haas out there leading a lot of laps at one point Ryan priest was great. It was a 400 lap race, but I would say that depending on what lap you were watching, another driver had the best car on track at that point. And that was the whole thing. I mean, the one issue is we kind of get to the quarter pole this year. We've seen passes a little deeper in the field. We can be critical of what we've seen at short track so far this season. But the one challenge that feels like it's been consistent, unless you're on a different strategy or you're going about things in a different manner when it comes to your tires. Like we aren't seeing green flag passes for the lead. So you better be sharp in terms of getting to your pits. You better make sure you get in and out of those pit stops in ten seconds flat and make sure that you're on the optimal strategy because the margins for air right now and the second year of the next gen car absolutely narrow and it's not like the other series where you can make up all those valuable positions on ice. It's that time of year again where every game counts where he split second propels a player to stardom, where the childhood dream of draining the last second shot to win it becomes

"I've got a lot of faith in him as a race car driver. Yeah, I do too. In his case, I think what you're seeing right now is the early season learning the new race car. You got a crew chief in Chad Johnston who was not working on this car. This rendition of a cup car last year. Iver who, while he did, I think it was three, maybe four races last year. It just doesn't have a huge sample size of experience driving this car to know exactly what he wants. I think those two examples give him a little bit more time. Bristowe Briscoe is a more of a mind blower for me this year. Because he actually last year was the first time that we saw somebody, maybe in terms of Stewart Haas that could give Harvick a run for his money and really did for the majority of the season. I think there was three quarters of that season. You can make the argument chase Briscoe was the best car in that company. And we're not seeing that out of them right now. And we didn't see it at Phoenix even all the way at a decent Ron attract that he wanted a year ago. But he kind of stole that finish. Both of those other Stewart host cars really weren't great cards and found themselves kind of with great finishes late. Right. Yeah, and I definitely won't disagree with that. But it was the most speed he's shown to this point. And Briscoe is another guy. He's a good race car driver. Now, if we go to Bristol dirt here in a couple of weeks and Briscoe's not up in the top 5, then we're pushing the panic button. We're saying, okay, we're on some alarms on this one. I mean, a big contract extension obviously expected to be that air apparent once Kevin Harvick hangs it up. It'll be very interesting to see how the season progresses for the 14 for sure. And it's interesting where you can mention loose lip syncing ships and it reminds me of something someone told me about the 78 team when Martin Truex won the championship for furniture row. They said the thing that worked in their favor was the fact that they were out in Colorado. They weren't going to the same bars. They weren't sharing any nuggets with some of the race teams around the spoke in Charlotte and it paid dividends for them there. So it's always interesting to hear what can change as far as information, both within teams and externally. You brought up schedules a little bit earlier and we'll get a chance to go to road course for the first time this weekend at coda. I guess the first question before we drill down a bit more, scheduling of races has always been a hot button topic. I know there was a lot of pushback from the traditionalist when they started integrate more and more road courses. Do you think we have the perfect mix now? Would you like to see the championship race rotate it through? Because back in the day when Chris introduced me to betting on NASCAR, you know, Sonoma and Watkins Glen were essentially throwaways other than for road course ringers because you know it wasn't going to have much impact and who was ultimately going to win the series championship. Yeah, I mean, I'm a road racer at heart, right? So I genuinely enjoy road racing. I think the more the merrier, I think these cars mesh up really nicely to road racing. You know, when we talk schedule, obviously I think the number 7 6 or 7 or of course is on there this year without knowing off the top of my head. And you know, could we do more? I think we could do more. I personally do. I personally think this car has been designed as a road racing vehicle. And it's very good on a course like that. What I'm curious about is what it looks like on a street course. And what takes place when we get to Chicago, and we do that. And Chris is nervous, are you going to tell you already? He's worried about the quality of racing. We're going to see on the streets of Chicago. I see him shaking his head already and let me tell you what you think you're nervous. Imagine if you're one of the drivers that has to mail it off into a 170 in one of those quarters for the first time. I'm nervous. And I think that that goes well. That opens up a whole new world for us. We went to the we went to the coliseum last year in LA and I think we were all nervous about that. And it turned out to be awesome. This year, this year, back to more of what we expected last year with the beating and banging, but that's a year under their belts, the competition was much closer. The cars were close to the drivers knew what to expect out of this car. So, you know, I think that that's what kind of brought on some of the some of the more challenging situations on the tight corners and everything like that. I don't think we're in a bad spot with the schedule right now. You know, I think we kind of got away from some of these mile and a half tracks as we talked earlier in the show just a little bit. We're maybe getting two cookie cutter. I mean, we got a dirt track in there. We've got a little bit of everything for anybody that you could possibly want.

"The official truck schedule, but I know they definitely don't ship them out west until much later in the year. I mean, they get Vegas twice, but they do get some time off. And you know what? This makes for great podcasting right now as I look to pull up the schedule and try and filibuster here. Well, I want to do like a little recap of the I do. There is the trucks. Hold on, the trucks do race on Saturday. Get a little double dip, two O 5 eastern and 5 O 5 for the trucks and Xfinity. So I'm sorry that I took shots at the truck series since they will be back on track. Yeah, those things are so aero dependent. I mean, it's going to be, it's going to race like pack racing. And that's just really hard to predict. But I just kind of want to go back and try to take some information that we got from Fontana, Vegas, and Phoenix. And what does that look like for the rest of the year? Because if you listen to door bumper clear, you listen to Denny's podcast. It's like they're saying that like Hendrick could win more than 19 races in a year. Without chase Elliott. And that's just, I don't know that I see that quite yet. I mean, Kevin Harvick was pretty good at Phoenix and that might be a little bit of an outlier, but I just kind of want to set the stage here for the next couple of races based on what we've seen. So you had a Chevy in Kyle Busch when it Fontana, but that's a complete outlier type track. That is even different than you almost don't even have a track comp. I mean, yes, you have the fall off at other tracks like Darlington and homestead, but they just race completely differently. Then you go out to kind of a smoother cookie cutter type Vegas, and you have Byron and larsa and just kind of dominate. And then you do the same thing in a short track with a new package in Phoenix. It's like, wow, are we on to something here with this 24 and this 5? I think Atlanta, if we just look at the next 5 races, Atlanta, I don't know that you can take a lot of information from this and apply it to other tracks. I just don't think that that's just not something you can do, even if it's even if you get Stenhouse to win there. I don't think you make Stenhouse like the heavy favorite at Talladega. You have to be a good arrow racer, but you still need to get lucky. You still need caution to kind of fall. I mean, Kyle Busch wins the Daytona 500 in other circumstances. But if you go to Austin, Austin, I think, is a big race in two weeks. This is going to kind of unveil, hey, how are these cars going to unload at road courses? I mean, it seems to be a foregone conclusion that Hendrick is just going to be fast there too. But I don't know. I would like to see what some of these other teams have, especially Kyle Busch in the 8 to see if he unloads like Reddick did last year. Because that will set the stage for the 6th world courses that we have this year. Then we're going to go back to a place like Richmond. I just don't see William Byron and Kyle Larson dominating at Richmond. I just don't see that. I think that there could be some other guys in there. Like a Harvick or maybe a Logano, or even a Chris Bell, those guys that are really, really good at conserving tires and getting better throughout the race. And then you go to Bristol dirt. I don't think that the Chevy's have a necessarily an advantage there. And then off to Martinsville, I think that's where you might see that the Hendrick cars kind of step it out a little bit. And then you're back to Talladega. So that's kind of the next 5 races. I just think it's important. It's not crown Hendrick motor sports yet. We talked with bob a little bit and NASCAR likes to make their changes and those changes like to level the playing field. So the Chevys have their advantage. I think that some of these teams will find it. And I don't think we'll see Hendrick win 19 races or 20 races to break JGR's record. So I just kind of wanted to know what I was going to say. I'm glad you did because the other thing about it too. NASCAR doesn't always inform the general public when they're making changes. You may watch a race and suddenly the Chevy's for whatever reason aren't as competitive as what they were early in the year. So I think as we talk about all the time, betting markets are dynamic, they're fluid. Oddsmakers know that William Byron and Kyle Larson have been the best two cars consistently week in week out. But we shouldn't be discounting a guy that you mentioned in Christopher Bell, who quietly, when you look at bell's results, has three finishes inside the top 6 this year. The only race he didn't finish inside the top 6 was Fontana. Don't look now, but the Ford's made serious gains last week, and it wasn't just Kevin Harvick, who was an improperly time caution away from winning that race. But he now has three top ten finishes on the year. Chase Briscoe came to life last week with a 7th place finish. So let's see what the dynamic and how things shape up in the pecking order. When we get to Richmond because who knows, we could have a row reversal and maybe it's the forge that are right there in the thick of things. But I guess that provides a logical question for what I want to ask you when you look at the tracks and how they lay out. Does it change how you're approaching odds to in the championship? I know you're not running to Bette William Byron because it ate to one it makes absolutely no sense. It's not as though we're going to get to the postseason with ten races to go in the year and Byron is going to go off as a three to one favorite atop the field. If Byron is good, Larsen will be good and it shouldn't mean we ignore some of the other big names in the sport. Well, especially chase Elliott too. I mean, if the 24 and the 5 are going to be clicking off all these wins, you have to imagine they have chase Elliott was in the 9, nothing against Josh berry, but he's not chase Elliott in a cup car yet. And he's going to come back. He's going to win one race. He's going to get in the top 16 and you know what they haven't created. Imagine he's going to be able to race in the playoffs. So that could really mix things up too. You're going to have to win races late in the late in the season. You just kind of have to. You're not going to just be able to point your way through. Jason's going to have to win whether he was racing all season or he was just kind of going in there for the playoffs. But man, I'll tell you what, the one guy I would say, if you're looking to fire, would be that Larson. I don't know that he's going to do this. I don't know how good he's going to be this week in Atlanta. It's kind of a crapshoot. So I have an invested anything on Larsen to win the championship. But when it comes to handicapping, when there's like a very clear halves and have nots, and right now, when I say the haves, I'm just saying the 5 and the 24. I'll just leave it at that. Those are the guys you just have to kind of predict where the market's going to go. When we jumped on Larsen at 13 to one last week, when they opened, that's because we just knew where the market was going to go. And you just have to understand that with William Byron, two wins under his belt, that let's just say he opens 12 to one somewhere or 13 to one. You have to know that if he unloads well or qualify as well, his odds are going to be 6 or 7 to one.

"And win the race. From the favorite or the so called favorites and we look at that large group that we kind of broke down. You obviously can go into the value tier. And it's always weird to talk about Kevin Harvick as he value proposition as we know he earned the moniker king of the desert and he's been astounding in Phoenix. When you look at his track record here, nothing short of immaculate is he attempts to become just the 6th driver to win ten or more races at a single track with a win this weekend. But the reality of it is since they went through the reconfiguration of Phoenix international raceway, Kevin Harvick has yet to grab the checkered flag. Last weekend in practice didn't show a ton of speed, but we know he gets the best out of his Haas number four. When we look at Kevin Harvick and the way he's currently baying priced, a guy worth exploring now were one that you know you'll have a quick trigger on if he starts to look like he's got a race winner. I say the same thing about Kevin Harvick that I do every week. I think he'll look average to maybe slightly above average in practice. He'll qualify average and he'll race better. I mean, that's just the standard operating procedure for Rodney chillers in that four team. Listen, for one, I'm the king of the desert. Okay, Todd, let me just make that. I think the connection is starting to break up. I'm gonna finish this podcast entirely on my own. You're not even the king of your own household, whether you like to admit that or not. In the background. He's just struggled with this new configuration. And yeah, he was on a streak there of an amazing run. I do expect him to run well. I don't think that you need to jump at this 12 to one price yet. Listen, if Kevin Harvick looks good in practice and qualifying and he goes down to 6 to one, he says he has a race winning car. He has a damn race winning car, and you can go ahead and feel very comfortable betting him at 6 to one when he's at Phoenix and saying that. I'd rather wait and see kind of what unfolds. Just because we haven't seen Harvard qualify well. So I don't think we're missing out on a price if we hold off on this 12 to one, at least at this point in the season. Two drivers that have started this season relatively so slow. One of them being Kevin Harvick's teammate chase Briscoe who won this race a year ago after leading a 101 laps was fourth last fall after leading 11 more laps. Currently 32nd in points and obviously wants a strong result on Sunday to build some momentum to close out the West Coast swing. And Tyler Reddick, when you look at how he raced here, he had a third place run last march, but other than that, nothing to write home about during his time at Phoenix. When you look at the current way that these two drivers are being priced, guys that are worth monitoring or drivers that you haven't seen enough from to lead you to believe they're capable of winning a race. I am buying Tyler Redick and I'm selling chase Briscoe at this point. I do think that Redick has the best value on the board. And I know that the 45 car did not have that much speed last year at this track, but I do think that this is not as much as the car as it is the driver. And Redick was really good here in the spring. And he was actually good in the fall until he had some issues. So I think that he can kind of with this reduction in down force. Reddick likes to lose race car. He's a dirt tracking background. I fully expect him to beat expectations. He's kind of right around that 20 to one range. I think some places open them upwards at like 35 to one, and he got bent down really, really quickly. So not only Reddick historically qualified as well too. So I think last week was just a really tough deal for that 45 team. Did not even get a chance to get out there and practice. He looked like he was shot out of a can in the first 30 laps of the race. As fast as the leaders run in 15th. So I do think that even though they didn't get to finish that they wanted, he finished outside the top ten there at Vegas. I do think that you have to take away some positive things from that race, just coming in completely with no practice and qualifying and still at least run some competitive lap times early on in the race. Chase Briscoe, I know he won this race last year and ran forth in the fall. But he was way more competitive in those surrounding races. He was up front at Fontana earlier and earlier in the season last year and then same in Vegas. It wasn't shocking to see him kind of run in that top 5 and then with the way that the shifting went down, I think that that's where he really set himself apart last year. And that's why he was able to win this race. I just have not seen the same speed and handling out of that race car to endorse a Briscoe play at this point. Now, if he does look good in practice and turns things around, it'd be great for Brian Murphy. At this point, I don't think there's any reason to get involved with that 14 team. No, it makes, look, it makes a ton of sense. You want to see a little bit of speed. I actually was talking to you before we saw odds hung earlier in the week, hoping that we got an astronomical price on Briscoe, but being priced much more like the driver that performed real well at this track, not once but twice this season ago, then the guy that we've seen really struggle out of the gates along with, you know, a lot of his other SHR teammates, one of which being Ryan Preece, who will see if he can put things together this week. But from that value tier, when you're looking at long shots, I mean, are there any drivers that you think are worth mentioning or guys that you just want to keep your eye on that you feel provide? Just an interesting storyline to follow before we see all the cars on track for the first time. I do think Tyler Reddick, I think, is a little compelling. 25 to one on these can be sites. The other guy might be Brad Keselowski. They've found a little bit more speed there at RFK and he's been very successful here at Phoenix when he has a fast car. So he's the same price as Ryan Preece and Ryan priest has been out to lunch ever since the clash.

"Today. Outstanding stuff from Murph and worm the one thing as we've gotten to know Murph a lot better over the last year plus. I mean, the guy lives for motor sport. If it's not NASCAR, whether it's the Xfinity, the trucks or the Cup Series. I mean, he's watching imsa. He's following F one. I mean, he's got motor oil coursing through his veins. That's the one thing you said to me. He said, hey, if you're going to be the expert auto racing, betting analysts, he's like, you better know more than just NASCAR. And it wasn't like it wasn't like a, oh, hey, you know, if you think this is like, no, you have to do this. If you're a race enthusiast, you need to start watching some of these other sports. I know he's given me some invitations to not only check out the Lambeau in the setup that he has there, which sounds amazing. But also, I might have to take him up on some of this off season stuff if we can go check out some local short tracks or something that is some of the other racing that Brian's involved with. That's the whole thing. There's so much more to what goes on in motor sports. And obviously NASCAR becomes our bread and butter because it's the most readily accessible to try and bet. But obviously they're racing fans that tune into the show. We're trying to convert a lot of our sports betters who have followed bet the board mainly for football content, basketball content over the years into being more sophisticated race betters, but hopefully they also begin to develop a passion for motor sport in general. I mean, look, where I could save you trouble though, you don't have to watch any F one races. We know that Max Verstappen has a 98% chance to get a podium finish unless he gets a DNF. So that's one sport we can save you the trouble until you get to go to Monaco and you get to be on your $300 million mega yacht watching that particular race. But all right, let's get into stage three and talk a little Phoenix international raceway. We know it is your home track, a flat mile out there in Avondale, Arizona. When you're looking here, we've raced in Phoenix two times a year going all the way back to 2005. It's a one mile oval short flak track, limited banking, if at all, there was a reconfiguration, a few years back, which changed the dynamic for one prominent driver as he hasn't been able to grab a checkered flag since. When you're looking at Sunday's race stage link, 60 first stage break, lap one 25 or sorry, a 125 laps later, and then a 127 lap stage three as I can't even read my chicken scratch notes here. Obviously, before we get into the race specifics, the first question I have to ask, when you're handicapping Phoenix, what are some of the best track comps out there that will go to? Gateway would be the closest track comp. And I'm basing that off of some of the comments from Kurt Busch as he was in the Xfinity series booth last year talking about it races. Gateway race is very similarly to Phoenix. Then I would say New Hampshire, and then maybe some Richmond. You're going to see some of the same tire compounds. However, I don't know that you can go back and look at those track comps from last year with the changes to the car that we're having this 30% reduction in down force. I would say at this point, Phoenix is going to be a better barometer for those tracks moving forward. New Hampshire, Richmond and gateway actually providing any value to Phoenix at this point. I think it's one of those weeks where, hey, let's just let the week unfold. And see if we can find some value after practice and qualifying. No, it makes a ton of sense. I mean, we know after listening to Murph, that there are a lot more unknowns this week than we typically get at other tracks. So when members of prominent race teams are saying that, obviously, it provides some challenges for us as handicappers. When we look at previous winners here at Phoenix, Joey Logano, of course, won the championship race in 2022, chase Briscoe won in the spring, Kyle Larson fall 21. Martin Truex Junior in the spring of 21 chase Elliott in the fall of 2020, Joey Logano in the spring of 2020. Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Kyle Busch, and Kevin Harvick rounds that out way back in the spring of 2018. 7 of the last 8 Phoenix races saw the eventual race winner get a top 5 in the opening stage. Chase Briscoe finished second in stage one back in last year's spring race while Joey Logano won the opening stage and 7 of the last 9 race winners had a top two performance in stage two. Briscoe was 8th in March, but Logano finished second in November. I present all of that data to go through some of the things that mirror violated. We look at testing. Christopher Bell Ross Chastain, Eric Jones, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Ricky Stenhouse were all here. But it didn't sound like any of those race teams or drivers that had the privilege of testing this new low down force package had the utmost level of optimism or thought they were going to be able to provide a competitive advantage when cars unloaded this weekend. We're going to get a 15 minute practice session, which I think will be pretty telling. So when you have all of those unknowns, does it temper some of your expectations in terms of your pre week exposure going into the for sure? Sure. It does. And I think that anyone that maybe reads into much about the bell Chastain Jones, Keselowski Logano and Stenhouse actually testing this package.

"But from the legitimate aspect of the sport, do you feel there's any less legitimacy to giving a guy a playoff waiver after missing 6 races due to an injury that was sustained not in a racing incident? Well, he still needs to win, right? So yeah, he does delete the wind. Does that legitimize it enough to you? I would think so. I mean, that's not easy to do. And you got to put together a good day and you win a race and that, you know, I think in my eyes is enough to be playoff bound. See, I think, I think even at this point, with the way things are and they've scrapped the top 30 rule, I think we should even have a required to start every race rule. Anymore. I don't think you should be required to start a race. You don't start to play off races, you're not going to win the championship anyway. So they're going to be there for the ten playoff races no matter what. These guys are going to not run these regular season races if they can't. I like the way you're thinking here because that makes Jimmy eligible. Well, there you go. The thought process I have here though is all you're doing at this point is penalizing somebody for not being able to find sponsorship because these guys are not gonna not run these races if they have a sponsor. Yeah. You know what I mean? Because you don't run these races, you don't have a sponsorship. Well damn, we don't want to sponsor you. You're not in those races. So the only thing you're penalizing somebody for at this point is not being able to find sponsorship. You're not penalizing them for their on track performance. You're not penalizing them for being injured. Penalizing for anything else, but not being able to find $30 million of sponsorship to be on the race track is the only thing that's being penalized at this point. And that's the thing I wish we would just kind of get rid of as that whole requirement to attempt every race. Because some of these guys, you go out one Daytona and sure you'd be locked in the playoffs, but oh man, I'm an underfunded guy who just doesn't have anything set for Vegas. Yeah. So in the true spirit of the way the rule is written, was it designed for injuries related to racing and this is kind of the gray area that you're talking about? I don't know, so that's the thing it's always been that thing where it wasn't really defined. It was just a medical waiver. So we've had precedent in the past for Tony Stewart's been injured and dune buggy accident. Made the playoffs. Kyle Busch was injured in an accident in a race and got the medical waiver. So we haven't seen any we've had COVID situations. We haven't seen anybody not be approved that's applied for one of these things. So from that aspect, I think chase deserves it because everybody else has had it in the past as well. It's not one of those things where this is a different case than anything we've ever seen. From that aspect, he needs to have the waiver. I just think it's time to scrap the whole requirement to run every race. The thought on the requirements run every race is so these guys don't not run NASCAR and they run like a couple of NASCAR races and go to IndyCar or whatever. I don't think you're gonna see that. You know what I mean? It just doesn't make sense. Chase Elliott. No, no, so it just doesn't make any sense to me. And it just feels like even though the rules in place to keep guys from swapping to a different series mid season wants to have an ass car win. It really feels like the only penalty being distributed out as to the guys who can't find sponsorship. They're not sponsorship. Right. They'll be any more penalty on top of that. Let's take a look at the statistical advance for Phoenix raceway this coming weekend. The playoff race at the end of the year. So keep that in mind. This is a prelude to that, even though we just kind of debunk that anyway. Race number four of 36 on a one mile, not short track, banking up to 11°. We're doing the metric system down in Arizona. 312 laps, 500 kilometers. Wow. Yeah, stages 60, one 25 and one 27. Last year's winner. What do we got here, spring? Chase Briscoe? Yeah. Yes. And the year before that was Martin Truex Junior, the poll sitter last year was Ryan Blaney. Yeah. And of course, you can't go to Phoenix without talking about Kevin Harvick either. The guy has won there 40,000 times. 40,000 exactly.
"chase briscoe" Discussed on NASCAR on NBC
"I'm a little surprised that Tyler Reddick hadn't shown me something in these first few races because really expected him to set the Woods on fire. And then internally in a couple of these teams, I look at everything that Kyle Busch has done at RCR and everything that Austin Dillon has not done at RCR. You know, as you look at that, two ends of the spectrum. So we've got teams that have that going on internally too. As you look at it. And then you look at Corey Lajoie, who just hammers it out, head down, blue collar, make it happen. Get it done with a team that probably shouldn't be running the way it is. But he's having solid finishes. And it's because of him. He's driving incredibly smart. He's not putting himself in bad positions. He's not taken an 18th or 19th place car trying to run in the top 5 with it and going home on the record. He's doing what the most that he can do and getting the most out of that car. So when I look at it, I'm still not sure where the year is going to go or how it's going to play out, but I think we're seeing the same players early in the year, meaning the Chevy drivers, the Hendrick drivers, the track house drivers, those guys have not checked out from where they're at. And the Gibbs guys, where they need to be. You know, I think that Danny and especially Martin, those two teams have been pretty good. Christopher bail, he ends up Fiat. He didn't run that well, but he ends up fit today, but he's had a pretty good year. And he had a pretty good second second half of last year. The jury's out on ty Gibbs, but it's out on anybody that's a rookie. I don't expect a lot from that. But I think as you go into it, nothing's really nothing's really surprised me. Nothing's really changed. So far in these sorts of Phoenix will be another test to come to that mile track and see because we know Kevin Harvick that's been a place that he's on. We know chase Briscoe that's been a place that he gets around. So let's see how the Fords do when we get to a mile track. It's going to be a big test for them. And as I look at the results, I'm somewhat surprised. I Austin cindric actually was the highest finishing for today in 6, but I think that was kind of the result of the jumble on the final restart. That final restart really kind of turned things around where a lot of guys maybe finished better than they ran or finished worse than they ran. So it's kind of hybrid of judge completely because of that green white checkered finish, but I do think it's interesting, Kyle, that you have Kevin Harvick finishing 9th. All of the Stewart Haas teammates finishing outside the top 15 and I don't know if it's like panic button time yet for Stewart Haas because it seems like they've had some moments, but I mean chase Briscoe was terrible at Fontana and said after the race they couldn't figure out why Ryan Preece clearly has not gotten off to the start. He won. I think he's been in a crash in each of the first three races that he's been in that 41 cup car for Stewart Haas racing. You know, again, it's Harvick's final season. Like you said, he's traditionally been good at Phoenix Phoenix is a huge marker because of the championship race. What do you make of what's going on with SHR? And how do they kind of turn things around? Knowing that it's not just Harvick's final season, but I don't know, it just feels like that team to me is like maybe the biggest question mark right now in cup. Yeah. So look, this is man, what are you asking me these questions? They turn. I love your answers. When Kevin won, when Kevin won, what, 9 races? That year, which was in 2020? Yeah. 2020, okay? Yeah. They turned it around in 2020, and they've been going in the wrong direction ever since. That's when they turned it around. They were at a place where I really thought, man, the sky's the limit. These guys, these guys can get it done. And I know I'm hard on people and I'm sorry, okay? But Kevin Harvick can't carry the ball every play. Every play he can't carry them all. You know, you just you're back in the ground, giving it to. And that's all they've expected from Kevin and Rodney. And they've run the ball on the ground. They've run the team in the ground because Kevin just can't do it. You know, it's not that he doesn't have the ability, but he can't move four teams forward. He needs to worry about his team and moving his team forward. You got one driver, Eric, who has just been constant his entire career. And that's not a knock. Listen, a lot of us were that way. We never we never got to that place, but he's just been a constant, but you know what you have with Eric. You know what I mean? You know, you know what you have. I think the deal with Chase is chase will give you Briscoe will give you a phenomenal week and then he disappears for two or three weeks. And then you'll give you a phenomenal week. Is that chase or is that the team? And then I think run priests. I think he's a wild card. You know, I just don't know and know what he's done. I know what he's done in the past and Xfinity cars and other things, but that was basically I think from Cole Custer to Ryan priest as a lateral move. They didn't do anything. They just took one driver out and put another driver in and it's the same. None of those three drivers sorry, they can't help Kevin. They're not helping Kevin Harvick. They don't appear from the outside to be to be pushing Kevin Harvick to be making Kevin Harvick or helping him move the team forward. And I think that's a problem. You know, we see it. We, in American motor sports, we're just wimps in a lot of ways. And I'm going to compare it to Formula One, where Formula One teammates hate each other. And they hate each other for a reason. They hate each other because they want to be the best one on that team. They want to be the best on that team. And they force each other to get better. That's what it's all about, man. I mean, the annals of Formula One are littered. With teammates that should have gone to prison for the amount of hate they headed for each other. You know what I'm saying? And the thing is, it's like you go to Stuart hall and everybody walks through the door. Yeah, Kevin's the best. Yeah. I'm with you. You know what I mean? And you just can see the facts. So you're not helping Kevin by that. You've got to have that attitude that, hey dude, I can kick your butt 6 ways from Sunday. Maybe not every week. But I'm going to force you to be on your game. Nobody's forcing those guys to be on their game.

"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.
"chase briscoe" Discussed on Bet The Board
"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

"chase briscoe" Discussed on The Final Lap
"No top fives. No top ten's chris butcher picked up points at daytona and coda. And that's it for him. No top ten's no top fives. Mattie deep picked up points at coda sonoma's watkins glen totaling seven points. One top ten and chase briscoe. Don't sleep on him. He he picked up points at coda and watkins glen. He's not really getting the stage points but he's been finishing well. He's got three top. Ten's two guys that you need to take a look at for your lineup that we'll be running this weekend. Aj almond dinger and austin syndrich. Aj picked up stage points at daytona coda and road america totaling fourteen points in those three races. He's got one top. Five and two top tens austin syndrich picked up. Thirteen points at coda. He has zero top ten zero top. Fives keep an eye on the weather. If it's raining you know what he can do. So by the looks of things the guys to put on your lineups right now. If you haven't run out of riddick chastain or aj almond dinger. Those are three guys that i would have on my team. If i have gaps to fill. Okay cup we'll be practicing at eleven. Am on saturday. So make sure you take a look at that cross reference those numbers to see if you guys look good. That will also help build your lineup for the weekend. And don't forget. Qualifying is sunday this week and As it is it's going to be attract position race and we saw last week. How second half of the field came in. The first. Half of the field took their stage points. Things flipped around the second stage. The second half the field got their stage points in the first half came in. So there's no telling what these guys are going to be doing. I think it's going to be based on their position on the track as to who's going to come in to get those bonus stage points you're going to have to take a good look at the qualifying positions in order to make that judgment. Call okay so once again. I'm heavy on riddick chastain and aj almond dinger for the weekend. If you're a little shy on top tier drivers those are the guys you should put in your lineup. Okay folks.

Larson and Kyle Busch cars got stronger while everybody else was laboring and just trying to make do with with what they had, as many opportunities to come down pit road to two can tweet to tune and tweak on these cars will be much welcomed by the drivers and the cruise, except for the two at the front of this field that are setting the pace and being the maestros of this race so far absolutely are and These drivers all out here today. Racing for the trophy is not one but two trophies, and we'll try to describe both of them for you. One of them is a brick pylon with the old neon sign like what you would see in Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. That Neon sign is the Nashville Superspeedway logo and Dave Moody, the other one. Is a familiar and famous Gibson guitar. Yeah, it is. Indeed, of course, the Gibson guitars for many, many years, the personal purview of our late friend, the great NASCAR artist Sam Bass, who put his personal test on so many of those guitars over the years. He unveiled a special commemorative guitar yesterday honoring Sam's memory. It will remain on permanent display in the infield media center here at Nashville. But the Gibson guitar folks are still all in and a beautiful custom. Gibson guitar will be awarded to the winner in Victory Lane later this afternoon. And there's one thing to keep in mind. There have been some guitars awarded to the drivers that are in the field here today. Now it goes back a long time. Kyle Busch Has three guitars to courtesy of winds at the Xfinity series level and a truck win. Austin Dillon has won. He won in the truck series Kevin Harvick has to because of the two wins he had in the Xfinity series. Brad Keselowski has two same reason. And Joey Logano has one. But none of them have a cup series. Uh, logo across there Gibson guitar, and they all want that They absolutely do. And they're going to do anything and everything they possibly can to the running of 400 miles today to try to get that mission.
"chase briscoe" Discussed on Fast Talk
"Know. it's so funny because mark echoed my good times and that's going to echo his too bad. That's exactly what i have written down in my notes right here. Kevin harvick finishing twenty second having a not great day. But then i think about the stat that you guys share during the broadcast of the fact that you know we're sixteen races in to the season and he's lead only thirty nine laps and hasn't even really sniffed a win yet the season and when you look at where. He was last season compared to where he is this season. It is very very clear that that team They need to go back. To the drawing board. Stewart haas as a whole But especially kevin harvick when you look at where. He was Last year compared to where he is this year You know certainly still in the hunt for for the championship in the points and everything like that but the fact that they don't have a win yet just is not indicative of what you expect to see from kevin harvick's so i think that that's definitely something that they need to look at. And then you know i had. I had on my notes that a few drivers that we're looking at great runs Just had that foiled for them at the end of the race from race incidents. And i have alfreido and mcdowell as As mark mentioned by christopher bell. I thought he had a pretty good ratio. He's a road course winner. This season and i was looking for him to my fantasy lineup. I was looking for him to do really well unfortunately had a late race incident and ended up finishing in the twenty somewhere so that was a bad day for them. To michael mcdowell got spun at turn ten on the last lap. He's going to have a top ten finish then he gets turned around and i think when he a. I want to say this though about kevin. Harvick's team you know his car. Got all messed up. The hood off of his crew members went and cut the hood of the car in pieces and gave it to fans. Oh that's cool up into the grandstands and handed it out to people that's making. That's making lemonade. And when you look at what happened today you know. It was not of their making granted. They weren't really contending for the win. They weren't one of those fast three drivers that we talk about You know today that that we thought for sure what's going to have a chance at the win so you look at that and you say okay yet. They definitely need to work on on some things but the fact is is that what took them out of the race today was really not of their making. So you know the other thing. I think you have to think. About what stewart. Doug ford isn't exactly set in the world on fire right now. Chevy with hendrick leading the way. In kyle larson their hot hendrick four wins in a row four for chevy in a row but joe gibbs racing hanging in there right. They've got five wins four toyota four again. They seem to be a little bit behind the eight ball. Penske is better than stewart. Haas and stewart haass's case penske has three veteran drivers. You know you have kozlowski lugano and blaney over at stewart. Haas ya got. Kevin harvick in amaral is considered a veteran custer. Sophomore season year for chase briscoe if harvick's not running well nobody's running well and right now. Ford appears to be a little bit behind the eight ball in stewart haas a little bit behind. Penske we'll dive into that a little bit more. Because i still think that's one of the mysteries that this year I'm gonna. I'm gonna give a bad time to everybody. That wasn't kyle larson again. Because i i i think. There was a point of evid ability in that race and keep restarted twenty-second at one point and we were sitting there. And he's knocking off two or three cars in a row and the next thing you know he's leading and thinking he can do that on a road. Course without the aid of caution flags or other. Weirdness you're not going to beat him and doug. It's not very long before. Were back at the road course. There's not enough time for teams to really go back and find enough to beat. Kyle larson if kyle larson goes to road. America and rolls off the truck like this. We're going to see this again. Yeah i think you know it's funny that you mentioned that doug that it's kind of call arson against the field because you're right every single driver. That was not call. Larson today had to be thinking. What the heck are they doing that. Were you know. Because he is just dominating everything and that's got to make everybody else feel just a little bit. You know small. Did you see him slip attire. Did you ever see that car out of control car went out wide even a foot. He was able to just turn hard right. Turn left and dr underneath them. Had good forward bite. I mean he never slipped. Tire never looked out of control. Any past karzi led the ray. What did he do. And it's not just winning back to back races. We see that happen a lot. It's the way carl larsson has won back to back races. He want all the stages charlotte and that race had three stage breaks so he got greedy and took everything and won the race there and here we just have to. He wins both of those and he was never really contested coming up. We will hear some audio from our winning race. Car driver kyle. Larson will also catch up with his crew. Cheat cliffs daniels right here on fast talk. Are you going forty miles an hour. This is a residential area. Sure but i'm on my lawnmower. Wait am i getting ticket. No i've just never seen anyone top nine miles an hour on one of those bad boys and mother attire lawn and thirty.

"Is 358 cups starts. I mean, that's how out of left field this Woz that called courtesy of Fox sports. This was a wild day all around. Whereas this the race is supposed to go off a 2 30 Eastern time it did in Daytona. Within the 1st 15 laps. There was a massive pile up. There was like a handful of contenders already taken out after 15 laps, and then the weather came and they had a weather delay and I stuck with the weather delay for Checked in over there about two hours. It was like every 20 minutes, Half hour. We back yet. What's going on? And then I had to bail after two hours, and then we have dinner. The bourbon Belle and I and I hop on my phone and I'm like, Okay, so what's going on? And they postponed it to tomorrow. What's gonna go on? I'm like, Oh, my God. They're going to start racing again. And then I was going to bed. They were still racing like this is outrageous. So they had this restart. After six hours of a weather delay late last night. This was nine hours after what was supposed to be the start. They finally finished. But on the final lap, there is a massive pile up 16 car crash on the final lap. And here's where Michael McDowell ends up making his move. He's trailing Kozlowski. Kozlowski gets caught up in this thing Logano Bloxham, and then he makes his move. And wins it 358 races for Michael McDowell, and he's never won a race ever and he ends up surviving. The wreck in the beginning the wreck at the end to win the check to take the checkered flag and win Daytona 500 he runs for really small race team for an owner that basically pumps in his own money. I mean, what a story for McDowell Toe win. It is one of the great Cinderella stories ever in NASCAR history 100 to 1, where the odds To start the day, outrageous, biggest long shot, so you didn't want a lot of money. If you put it down in McDowell, That was outrageous, and I know you're gonna get over there. How about Derek cope? The winner of the 1990 Daytona 519 84 Rookie of the Year In NASCAR. It's 62 years old to 62 were taken licenses away from some of our grandparent's 62. He's racing at Daytona gets knocked out in that first crash, like three laps in a swell He wanted 1990. Okay, so to put that in perspective That be like Say who You want a 1990? That was Gordon hadn't even wanna final shit, right? Exactly. Yeah. Yeah, Exactly. That's like the Reds team back in 1990 with Jose, Real and Chris, say Bo. Coming back, and one of those guys winning the world Syriza or at least you know, competing. He didn't win. But that's how insane that was. So the whole thing is just nuts. Just absolutely nuts. They get it in the crazy finish. And remember, Denny Hamlin talkto us about all of the wrecks. That happened constantly that they tone and why it happened on Friday, which is cool to talk to him. He ends up finishing in the top 10 top five. I think, actually think he came in the fifth But his race for three in a row did not come through. But just a wild day all around and then when you have a six hour weather delay You gotta go eat. I mean, you know, we're just thinking that these guys sit around and twiddle their thumbs and play cards up until you know, scroll their phone on Twitter until they're back. No, they gotta go eat. There were multiple guys that left to go make fast food runs. What do you think about that? Well, I would say this if you were in a sport where a delay can allow you to leave the building and go get fast food. I have major credibility issues with that being said, Hey, if time allows I am sure I would have done the exact same thing. You think they have credibility issues because of this? Yeah. I mean, look, we all watch baseball. We've seen those rain delays. I've never once seen Jason Giambi go hail a cab to get Popeyes, so he's a little different. So last night during the during the weather delay. Chase Briscoe, who drives the number 14 car. Ends up going drive thru Panda Express. How do we know? Because his wife Marisa, tweeted a picture of him going through the drive thru in his fire suit. The guy didn't even take up his suit. On in like classic NASCAR. He's sitting there. He's making the order and you can kind of see his gut to see O E. And he's in his fire suit. You could see his pants. Just like this is all types of perfect for NASCAR. What do you think about a panda express? Take out option middle of Daytona, So I think it's awesome because I think the rice will fill you up. I'm a big panda express guy in general. I actually pulled the school because we don't have them here. I was unaware the pain experts had drive through. So I found that to be. Yeah, I didn't know that either. So I found that astonished. But I think that's e think the French fries all that grease. I'm not that Chinese food is healthy by any means, but we should get some sort of vegetable. Sure, there's a broccoli in there some parents and that fried rice. I think that's good fuel for you there in that spot. Then Ross Chastain, who drives her chip. Can asi racing ends up going through the McDonalds order and who's ever in his passenger seat ends up taking video of him? He gets Mac Donald's for his entire 42 teams. The whole team during the rain delay. What do you think about that? So I think it's a selfless act to buy for your entire team. So I think that is incredible in that is great. I just would question my stomach. As I'm making turns at 100, whatever miles an hour after just pounding a quarter pounder with cheese fries and probably a snack wrap or something, maybe a little glory. I'm loose. Yeah, I think With you. I think I would opt for Panda Express number one to get the drive thru panics presses huge. I've only had it in the mall. So you know whether whether do away with your fire suit, middle of pandemic, you know, walking into a mall in waiting in line at the food court. Doesn't make much sense is going through the drive through, so I think I think you're right. No one. They have a drive through. I think I would out for Panda Express is well, maybe a little orange chicken over some rice. That sounds pretty good. Some snow peas. But the McDonald's is a huge play because you could order for everybody now wondering what type of monster order that is..

So he's in good shape, and he's just a talented, nice kid on somebody that we have a lot of respect for for sure, we'll talk about him. In a moment, NASCAR's waved off the restart. They found additional debris over and turn number two. We need to make sure that that's All buttoned up before we put him under the green flag. Austin Cindric Alex Hayden not only a talented race car driver, but a very polite and humble race car drivers. Well, absolutely is and he is a fantastic driver and the more reps he gets the more seat time he gets here in full bodied stock cars that better off. He's getting obviously winning here. Daytona. He won the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship a year ago, and not only that, but he won the rally called Cross Race here at Daytona when they ran rally cross here in the infield at Daytona International Speedway, his background his road racing, but he is a highly talented Race car driver and when you have all those different types of disciplines behind you, Rusty Wallace that can on Lee make you better eyes. He's with a great team, too, and Roger Penske's team is second to none. There's no doubt about that. One car I want to talk about. It's a 14 car. That's Clint Boyars old team from last year that he drove for Chase breast goes in there Now we saw something kinda peculiar earlier that caught this causes caution. It looks like maybe the 14 car Briscoe hit a piece of debris going into turn one blew out the left front tire. He spun Thea other car. The main a tail car got involved in that That driver helped me out there. That's greenhouse with, huh? Yeah, he got involved in that tour. Debris everywhere, but But that 14 car of Chase Briscoe as he went around, he was shedding a lot of material off of that car fenders of suffer flying everywhere. And I'll tell you what. There was a lot of debris on the racetrack from all these cars that were tore up one of the 24 car William Byron, shooting stuff off. They finally got this stuff cleaned up, but I think we gotta clean track and we're ready to go again. And Kim Koo in real quickly as the fields up in turn, Number three, an update on that number 14 of Chase Briscoe. They've made a number of stops. And just have to keep patching the front of it. They keep finding holes that they need to patch.

Chase Briscoe confirmed at Stewart-Haas Racing for 2020
"Risky brisky is in studio. What's happening what's up chase briscoe nothing? I'm busy busy busy whole big time over here. I'll know about that has re upped with Tony Stewart at Stewart House Racing Gene Haas to compete again in the expended series. And I could be more exciting. I thought you were awesome last year in the car. You know got win in Iowa and I think you should contend for a championship. Don't you think yeah I think yeah pretty good you know. We don't have a ton of changes. I mean roles wise. It's the same. We have a new body on the Mustang. But yeah I mean there's going to be the first time in my career I've been able to go back with the same team in the same crew chief so looking forward to what do you think of the new pitstop procedures that were just announced. Yeah I just saw literally about thirty minutes ago but I think you you know at Iowa. I don't really think it's going to change anything but I do feel like at the road courses. It's GonNa Change them completely because there's no more short pitting anymore. There's no more flipping stages so so for me. I think it's a little bit worse. Because now you're going to have awesome syndrome out front in maintaining track position the hallway. So it's going to make it harder. I think to win the road course races because it's GonNa take a lot of the strategy out of it but it's hard to say right now we haven't done it yet so it's hard to say what it's going to be like but yeah I think it's going to be easier to maintain track position on a road course so fast on a road course. I think it's definitely a positive for you for sure. The move really helps money-wise for some of these smaller teams but the cup series teams were flying people into standalone races to do the crew and some of them have their own crews. I guess but a lot of the Rian flying flown end so that costed everything kind of brings that cost down but I agree with you. The road course racing is going to change that totally but as far as the racing product on track. It's not going to change that very much. Yeah I think you know it's not going to change the especially at the Iowa and the places like that Barocco where the fast guys stay up front so yeah. I think that's GonNa be the only place where you really see a difference in this new. Whatever you WANNA call? It rule changed. But I think it's going to be just normal Iowa and you can still pit when you want to pay it or whatever or you're just GONNA lose positions on pit road which like you said it's a good thing and it does definitely say the teams a lot of money if anything. It might make the racing a little bit better just because so you know if you have a guy like Ryan SEGER Jeremy Clements. That doesn't necessarily have the pick crew caliber of a pin skier Stewart. Haas if they can get up to sixth seventh or eighth or whatever or you know they can stay there now so dropping back five or six spots in a pit road so it's probably GonNa make the racing better the short tracks but you know it's hard to say I was going to do of course is this for you is. Is this the first time that you've since you've stock cars. You'll be in the same car two years in a row saint team but like same actual type of car era xfinity car in two thousand eighteen. I gotta run up not full-time. This will be the first time I've ever in two seasons full-time back. toback Gotcha so there's something to be said for that. I think a full year under your belt is going to be going to be good. Yeah I think you know last year specifically you know the first half of the year to the second half of the year was day now to be able to start the first half of the year where we ended the second half. I think
Surprise win at Charlotte "monumental" for Ryan Blaney's confidence
"Chatting with Sunday's winner at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Ryan Blaney. We've spoken of winning the race and running the race, but what about the benefits of that? Race? Ryan. What about the tea? Where does this team stand right now? What did this win do for the guys as you head into over this weekend? Huge. You know, we, we were looking at this first round lead into the playoffs and and honestly we were this was around, we were most worried about because there's a couple of tracks in here where we weren't sure how we're going to run. You know, Vegas honest. We're going to run a little bit better there, but Richmond, that's been a track where we've struggled. And I thought we made a big gain there and practicing qualifying and the race we, we struggled really bad and had a terrible day, and that's kinda got us nervous about what we were sitting in the points. And then you go to the role that you just don't know what to expect. Anything can happen. You don't know if you're gonna be good, bad getting Iraq. You don't know everyone's a little bit nervous going into the robo, but you know, even before we won the race, we did our job and ran how we needed to get into the next round on points. But whenever you can win, especially in the playoffs, it's just a huge confidence booster not only to me but to the team as well. And to do it in that fashion I think was was it was neat, and I know they're really excited to. Going and around to. I feel like has some really good tracks for us. So hopefully we can capitalize on that stuff. But yeah, it's just a huge confidence booster everybody and confidence a big thing, this sport, and we, we definitely have it right now. Hopefully we can keep it for a while.
