Fresh update on "chase elliott" discussed on The Final Lap

"Well, we're fresh off Texas Motor Speedway. Where it once again altered the course of the playoffs. Let's just dive right on into it and take a look and see who dominated the stages and check out our winner for the league this week. For the first stage you've got mudflap VA. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say, you're from Virginia. For the second stage, we have a three way tie, team la palm, lord Byron 24, and 24 chase 9. And this week's winner. Freight train. Montana made. Great train is out of Montana. Not many NASCAR fans come from Montana, presumably. And this one knows his fantasy place. He's been hitting it with those bonus points. Last 14 out of 16, correct as of late. Nicely done, maybe I should be calling you for some advice. Anyway, freight train. Finished with 251 points on the day. 44 stage points. Very nicely done. Good job. Looking at my picks this week, rowdy dragon came in 13th, moving up in the standings to the 7th spot. Toby Christie finished in the 93rd spot, and that puts him in 56th in the overall standings in the league. Harry Murphy, where is Jimmy? He finished in the 63rd spot and just passes Toby. Pulling into the 55th spot. There is only 12 points separating the two. Like I said, they were gonna have a good battle going into the end of the season. Looking at our sponsor, Joe bike. He finished in the 79th spot. He's sitting in the 42nd spot in the league. Now let's take a look at last week's pick. I gave you the 20, the four and the 12. The 20 couldn't come to terms with his tires, allowing more than one, eventually ending his day to a damaged vehicle policy, fortunately I sat him out his practice times didn't look right. A few of the Toyota seemed a bit off and helped me come to the decision not to use bell in my lineup. Kevin Harvick, he was running well, leading, in fact, when he was yet another victim of a blown right rear. The floor was always hard to read and practice and I saw better plays available so I sat him out for this race as well. Ryan Blaney, he was this week's breadwinner. Struggled early, but able to put up a stage win and a good finish in fourth coming up with the second most fantasy points. Okay, moving on to this week's featured pics. I've got three good ones for you. Mixing it up a little bit. We got the 45 car of bubble Wallace. This is Talladega super speedway and he's pretty good at these super speedways. He's got 9 races under his belt, his average finish, however, is 19.2. He's only got one top 5 and one top ten at Talladega. That's 11% of his races. He has 53 laps led that averages up to almost 6 laps per race. And he does have one Talladega win. Looking at his stage point picture, he has collected stage points in 5 of 18 tries, but what caught my eye was those three stage wins. That shows that he knows how to get to the front and stay there for a minute. And like I said, that is why I put him up here. It's those stage wins. And where those laps letter concerned, he has led laps in the last 6 races. Some of his looped out also caught my eye. He is one of three drivers that shared the most fastest laps of the race in the last run at Talladega Superspeedway blah. Now we're spreading up those fantasy picks, you just can't keep firing away with those big guns lest you be left with few choices as the season winds down. But our next driver chase Elliott in the 9 car. He's got 13 races under his belt, an average finish of 15.2. He finishes in the top 5 31% of the time, that's four out of 13 races. Finishes in the top ten 38% of the time, that is 5 out of those 13 races. He's led a 173 laps in that time period that averages out to 13.3 laps led for race. Chase also has a win and has collected stage points in half of the runs. He has run at the track. That's 11 of 22, with one of those being a stage win. I took chase this week because he has a pretty good average with those top 5 finishes. Chase is a good play. I imagine if your team looks like mine does, you've garaged the 9 car a few times already here in the playoffs, leaving you with a healthy amount left. Don't leave points on the table. Contrary to what I just said about spreading out those picks. But if your team looks like mine, you have 5 uses left and 6 weeks to use them. And any one day can be another garage day for Elliot. So it's best to put him in there for

Fresh "Chase Elliott" from The Final Lap

"Doubt. Yeah, so you throw that in there too. He's a dirt threat. He's an oval threat. He's a road course threat. I don't know much that this guy can't do. And I think that's why 23 11 made the move as early as they did to get him. And I think that's why RCR was kind of hurt as badly as they were that he left. How cool was it, by the way, chase Elliott, his car in flames, giant explosion, and he's walking away like he's in a movie trailer. That was pretty cool, yeah. That was pretty cool. But yeah, concerning man, these playoff drivers, we've talked about at this point. They have had a rough start to these playoffs. We're four races in now. I don't know, has anybody had a complete, clean start here? I think maybe Logano is the one guy who hasn't had like a bad issue to this point in any of these races. That would make sense to me. I think that might be it because Briscoe's had some rough races, but he squeaked through. To this round, but I think everyone else has had some kind of a scare. Some kind of a weird moment where it looks like, uh oh, they could be done. So this is a situation where it keeps piling on each week, but Christopher Bell chase Elliott were the ones that had issues this week. Christopher Bell had a spin because of a flat tire early. Got things recovered and was working his way back up. Another flat tire spun again pounded the wall. Couldn't get out of that one, and then of course chase Elliott cut a tire while leading as well. On the exit of turn four and boom into the wall hard car, like you said, burst into flames. They showed the in car video because NASCAR's got in car cameras on every car on the playoff or every car in the field now where you can kind of see what's going on. And the flames were actually inside Chase's cockpit, which is something they did a couple weeks ago to address. But apparently when you get a jarring impact to the side, it kind of moves things and the flames were in the cockpit again. Christopher Bell also who was leading the points just a few weeks back is now not looking so good. By the way, if you look at the playoff standings on NASCAR dot com, they have adjusted them with the William Byron thing. So he's actually out. Yeah, currently he's out, so the appeal is in process, but until the appeal is overturned. Until the penalties overturn, the penalty will stand. So you're guilty of to prove an innocent at this point. My notes here are wrong. We've got Austin centric William Byron Christopher Bell and Alex Bowman on the outside looking in. Chase Elliott, who has previously teetering on the edge there, has got 9 point cushion. He went from way, way, way good. 11 point cushion. Okay, but still 11 points is nothing to be like. Yeah, I got this. From like what, 40 points or something to the good and now just 11 and he's having issues here that he did not have a smooth round one. He had problems in just about every race. Now starts off this round with more issues. Chase Elliott, who's been kind of the only guy that's really been able to put together sustained success in this car has found himself in trouble and once the playoffs started. These aren't playoff drivers, but Kyle Busch at the wall hard. His woes continue in 2022. Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Junior, wrecked while leading with right rear tire issues, these right rear tires were the talk of the race and we're just getting to it now. Yeah. And so the thing I have, so even Rodney childress kind of took to Twitter, which these guys have all been going to Twitter now. That's the thing. Because they've voiced their displeasure to NASCAR and nothing's happened. So they feel like they need to go to Twitter and air out their grievances. But the thing I took away from roddy Childers thing was he admitted to running their pressures too low. Right. So what do you expect to happen? I understand that you want the car to handle better and you want your driver to be able to have a chance to be fast. But Rodney childress said in all of his races as a crew chief, he's run lower tire pressures than what was recommended and all but about 5 of them. And people are blaming Goodyear. I don't understand that part. That's the thing. So, and I feel bad for Goodyear because they're putting minimum recommendations on these tires. And if the teams don't listen to them, then you have tire failures. That's where we're at, although the drivers I will say, we're not blaming Goodyear this time around. They blame NASCAR. Well, there were cars out there that didn't blow tires. The very, very true. And so the issue I have here, the problem I have with this whole thing is why are we complaining if we're going below minimum recommendations? Like, Goodyear says this is what you need to inflate it to at minimum. And these guys are going, well, damn, I can get an extra hundredth of a second if I bump that down a little bit. Well, yeah, you do, but you risk popping the tire, which is what's happening. And these guys are like, well, the next gen car is too hard to handle and we need yeah, but you don't have it. The whole point of this car, was it supposed to be hard. It's supposed to have no down force. So your little tricks you're trying to do to make these things happen where you have those things, it's a reward, but it comes at a risk. And the risk is your tire blowing. So do you want your driver to blow a tire go on the wall and be out for weeks due to concussion? Or do you want to finish the race? Maybe finish fourth have good speed, but not race winning speed. You got to decide that. But to take it to Twitter and act like there's some kind of huge problem with the car based on the tires blowing and stuff like that it's just ridiculous. When you're setting the damn tire pressure's too low. Exactly. Exactly. That's just stupid. I don't even want to hear it. Up next is Talladega, then we've got the Charlotte roval road course to round out this particular round in the playoffs and Toby. Sat down with Corey Lajoie. I don't know if did you sit? Yeah, we were both sitting, actually. Yeah, it was a good time. All right, tell us more. Yeah, so hey, we're going to talk about his upcoming event at the kickball tournament, and let's go out there right now, Corey Lajoie. How are you doing? Yeah, buddy. It's been a lot of work putting together that kickball classic. Everybody has been helping out Leigh Anne and Phil from the YMCA. Those guys are

"Like Cory. He's always, he's always very understanding of what people were trying to go through and he really appreciates when people take time out to interview and stuff like that. So he's always a good guy and he's not afraid to just can't tell you things. He'll answer questions. He doesn't use a shy away from things. Cool. All right, we'll have that in a few minutes. Let's talk NASCAR Cup Series race recap from Texas motor speed. We've got rain, lightning, tires, fires, Rex, broke the record for cautions. Well, did I mention tires? Dude, I mean, anything that could have happened in this race happened. Whether it be leaders crashing out from the lead, just feuds happening. We saw pit road incident that nearly turned out really bad. A whole bunch of stuff. Like you said there was fire. There wasn't even rain in the forecast. Where did the brain come from? Like what in the world this was just nuts. I don't know what was going on, but we've talked about for years now at this point that these races at Texas Motor Speedway are so damn boring. Abolish that track and look at what we got this week. What the heck? It was nuts. Chaos. Let's run things down ten to one where we got Denny Hamlin, who got spun under caution by William Byron. No big deal, right? Just retaliation. We've seen retaliation over the years and typically retaliation. When you don't wipe the guy's car out and end his race, usually doesn't result in much of a penalty, but whatever. Yeah, we'll get to the penalties later on in the program, but I mean, just on the racing side of things, it seems like Denny Hamlin is got it out for everybody, or everybody's got it out for him. Yeah, he does seem to be on the other end of these things a lot. I think a lot of that just has to do with being passionate and being towards the front of the pack a lot. And also the fact that he had a lot of frustrations early in the year with good runs being spoiled quite often. And so I think that kind of helped trigger things early in the season. I don't know what's going on now. Maybe it's just depression to playoffs and hoping to get to the championship for and just they're walking that fine line anyway with this car. You step over the line just a little bit and we've seen what this car can do to you. Every situation's intense in this car and I'm sure that there are things that have happened that he didn't mean to happen like the thing that triggered this dust up here. Was actually Danny Hamlin nearly running into the side of William Byron to begin with. I don't think he meant to do that either just like maybe William Byron didn't mean to spend him under caution wink wink. I don't know. It's all a situation, but I think for so long got into this thing where we went to drivers police themselves. And now all of a sudden we're going to kind of back it down a little bit from that thought process. I don't know. I don't know if we're going the right way on that. Well, we'll get into the whole penalty and the repercussions and all that stuff, but yeah, I don't know. It's never Denny's fault. It's always everybody else's fault. And it just seems to be, how confident are you if you're Ross Chastain now? Because of all this happening. Right, somebody's distracted him. Right. Well, that too, but no, I mean, with the penalty that we'll discuss later, the Denny can't really retaliate now. That's a good point. I hadn't even thought about that later of things, but yeah, so now if any were to exact revenge on Ross. Come on, Denny. If you know, if you're going to be a tough guy, you know, why are we still waiting for that? If we're being honest, though, he did that at Pocono. And even admitted to it, that he meant to do what he did to Ross at Pocono. Nothing happened there. They did get dequeued due to a piece of tape being under the wrap, but yeah, so there's all sorts of weird things and we just need to pick away here, but yeah, that's an interesting wrinkle I hadn't thought of. That does kind of set the precedent that if anyone does want to get revenge against one of these guys that he's now mad at. Then he's in trouble too. So we'll see. Denny's all talk. Kyle Larson there at number 9. And a quiet knife plays finish. I kind of expected a little better from him because he was pretty elite at Tex Murphy last year, but I think he'll take a 9th place finish. No drama really. It looks like he's looking to move on to the next round of playoffs. So if you can just skirt through here, have no issues like his teammate chase Elliott had and just get through this thing clean, I think he'll be happy. That's the idea is to move on to the next round of the playoffs. How about Brad Keselowski? That team in general has been looking really good and now he's heading to attract this weekend that he basically owns. Yeah, he led a lot of laps at Bristol. Obviously I had the pit road penalty and all that stuff, but his team car Chris busher won that race. This week he comes back at Texas, wins the poll leads tons of laps early on, has a pit road penalty again, has to go to the back, but works his way all the way back up here to an 8th place finish. I think we're seeing some good stuff out of Roush Fenway Keselowski racing. And when you saw Bristol, you're like, okay, well that's Bristol. That's a different beast. That won't carry on anywhere else. Well, Texas, nowhere near what Bristol is and they're fast again. Butcher was also fast before issues caught him too. We're seeing a lot of speed out of RFK racing all of a sudden as we were closing on the end of this season. They're building momentum for 2023. Now, William Byron did finish 7th, but the penalty that it was issued during the week kind of dropped him off, but and also probably messed up his playoff standings that I have listed there. So it was third. He's no longer third now. Right. So he technically finished 7th, but obviously that's all messed up. Right. Actually, no, it's actually still in play depending on when you're listening to this because they're appealing it. That is a good point too, so we still have a lot of things in play here.

"Kicking his ass. Right. That was one of the most empowered moments I ever had in my life. Was that three or four years span? Because now I had perspective. That I didn't have before. And yeah, that was a crappy three or four years. It sucked. But it helped shape who I may not be a good thing, but it helped shape who I am. No, I mean, I think it was a good thing. It did shape you and after you got that win at Dover in 2006, I'm sure that that made for a ton of relief for everything you went through in 2004. And that's how that is what's out there for that picture. Yeah. No question. We mentioned Christopher Bell becomes the 14th winner in the Cup Series this season. There's two slots left right now on points in the playoffs. I want to get to that, but first I want to touch briefly, chase Elliott, even though there's all this sort of speculation. Who's going to make the playoffs who's not? How many women are we going to have? There's one thing I think we can say to definitively right now is that chase Elliott has been the hottest driver in the Cup Series. He's leading the points. He's leading the playoff points. The way things are playing out, I think he is probably the odds on favorite to get the 15 points as the regular season champion as long as he continues the streak. He's got four straight finishes of first or second, so an average finish of one and a half since Nashville with two victories and two second place finishes. But in the post race interview with Parker Kligerman, he does not sound like a championship favorite Jeff. This was rookie season chase Elliott beating himself up about failing to execute what more do you need to be Christopher Bell in that last run? Just do a better job again. Same conversation as road America, unfortunately, so I just, you know, I feel like just a poor. Run of execution on my end, you know, throughout that

"Corey, we appreciate you taking us through that. So we asked people all the time, almost kind of put you on the spot here, man. What's the one guy? Who's the one person that's reached out since this good run that surprised you? Did you get a phone call, a text? Somebody you didn't see something coming from that that maybe put a smile on your face and kind of, you know, kept you going for more wins here? Man, did you give or take about 400? Over 400 people probably texted me and, you know, guys like Dale junior, obviously I've talked to you being a large part of what we're doing inspires. Well, it certainly means a lot, but it's not even somebody like anybody listening to this would know. It's like all those people that have helped me along the way that still are watching my career. So, you know, the people who might not be significant to the people watching the race necessarily significant to my career, those are the ones where I mean a lot. Thank you. Well, man, thanks for calling. We know where you're at. I'll get you some sushi. It's right behind you. Other table over there. You've earned yourself a cold beverage, man. Great work on Sunday impressive. Thanks for calling in. Thanks, spells have a good evening. You too, man. Got it. It's great to hear that ass in that question because he's so genuine, right? It wouldn't shock me. It's not a guy we know. It's somebody that worked on that KNN car. Somebody he helped in high school. That's how Corey is. And I think that what the fans saw there is who he is. I hope he becomes a fan favorite. That interview was impressive. Corey is an old school throwback driver. He built his own race cars, raced against chase Elliott raced against all those guys emission. He and his dad were in his shop and his dad shot building those race cars and he knows every piece of them still today is great fabricator. And he could go build a light model right now today. And it could go compete. So I love the old school Corey Lajoie and, you know, listen, I'm proud of what spire is done. As far as taking a major step, I hope they can continue to take steps and keep that guy and or if they can't, I hope he can find a way into a better ride where he can show what he can do. Either way, I'm happy with spirals on a great job. I would love to see them be able to up their game and be bringing better cars. He said, David birth Goliath. Well as a David versus Goliath weekend, our buddy David, well, Parker, that is Parker mcclernand, the little team that could add a Tennessee win to the road course and back to victory lane with Parker behind the wheel.

"Elliott will join his father. As the only Georgia born driver now two of them to win at Atlanta Motor Speedway. So you think these fans have heard of the poll room before in dawsonville we've been live all day there with Rutledge. It's okay if Rutledge rings the siren tonight. That is not telling not to break it. Now that thing is really special. Let's hit that side. The hometown boy gets the win and the siren goes off at the dawsonville pool room. Well, that's what it looked like. Welcome to NASCAR America, motor mouse, Kyle Petty still laughing about the peach. There's a whole story to that, Jeff Burton Steve guitar. Listen, we have a lot, jammed into this show, great race at Atlanta, and it was a good weekend for Georgia drivers. We had a lot of Austin Hill chase out. So two Georgia drivers to Georgia natives, won both the Xfinity and the Cup race. Cora Lajoie is going to join us in the second segment. Had a great run right there. Ended up a big wreck, but there was a lot of sparks and a lot of highlights and we're going to talk about it. We're going to have a little bit of a Ross Chastain conversation I'm sure. And also our old buddy Parker Kligerman found his way back to victory lane in the trunk. Well done, Parker. Yes. So we're going to have him on here and tell him everything he could have possibly done better in the truck race, even though he went to victory lane. Let's start. Down in Atlanta, the new Atlanta, Jeff, you and I had this conversation. What are we going to see? We're going to see drafting. We got to see single file. It looked a little spread out on Saturday with the lower grip, the lower down force we get to Sunday. It looked like speedway racing in me, great race. Well, what I liked about it, it was speedway racing with poor handling cars. It reminded me of a Daytona race before it got repaved, where some people go wrong wide open. Some people couldn't. And I like that because that shows me that already the track has started to change a little bit. And we're going to go through this transition of races like that, where what is the grip level? Can I run wide open? Can I not run wide open to that? It's proven to produce some pretty exciting racing. Listen, from start to finish, they raced every lap. And that's all you can say. And we don't get that all the time. So you have to look at it from the time the green flag dropped until the time the checkered flag fail. Somebody was racing somewhere and 90% of the time, it was first second, third and fourth. It was where the camera was. So the best race I've seen, racing wise, almost all year long. Well, listen, as we always say, this is a fan show you fans are the most important part, so we'll be taking your phone calls. One 8 four four NASCAR NBC. So that was the racing. We talked about the chaos. Chase Elliott didn't just win, but I think he got overlooked. He swept the race. He won stage one stage two and the finish. And I bring that up just because, you know, I'm with you. You know, I know I had a good car, but that perhaps is the hardest thing to do, especially at a speedway where we see kind of comers and goers, pushes and shoves. I enjoyed the style of racing. I was a little surprised we didn't have the big rack. Like, we had some racks. Listen, but not a 20 car pile up. I was, I was fascinated. Christopher Bell spins out of the middle of the pack, nothing. Yeah. Danny spins out of the middle of the pack, nothing. You know what I mean? I mean, you just spun out the middle of the pack. It's not like it wasn't. Daytona talent. Where you go up and come back and you collect and all that stuff. We didn't see a lot of that. So I was really surprised about that. I didn't know what to expect. I watched the spring race, and I thought, okay, and that was different, you know? But is this going to be just as different? I was, I was impressed. I was impressed that even the eel handling cars seemed to be able to stay in the pack. And make an adjustment and get where they needed to be. And I think that's a tribute to the car into the drop. Because they never gave up on what they had. So I think we should set the stage, right? So we're late in the race at this point, and there's gonna be a restart ends up being Corey Lajoie and Martin Truex Junior on the front row. They go through one and two, Truex slides up. That basically puts the 9 of chase Elliott at the 7 of Korra joy battling on the last two laps. So Jeff, when we go back to look at it, right? We're gonna start here. It's about two to go, I think, at this point. And this is where Chase Elliott finds his way back to the lead. He gets a big run off the nose of the 43. At this point, I think the seven's kind of a sitting duck. I don't think he could protect both lanes. Well, chase Elliott had moved from the bottom lane to the outside lane because Eric Jones and Blaney on the outside lane had some momentum. That pushed chase out in front. Of Cory. So now Corey, now he's got a push from the one car on the bottom, but I don't think the long car was a great pusher. The front end damage on the car, I thought that hurt the speed of that car. Corey does the same thing that chase did. So Cory's looking, now he moves to the top, he picks up the run from Erik Jones and Blaney. Now he's got the momentum. What's he gonna do with it? Tries to go to the outside almost there. Chase with a big block and now Cory's in the wall. And now game over. Now the big reg. But, you know, when I look at that, both chase Elliott and Corey Lajoie change lanes to get the push from the outside lane to get that

"Equal ground. So I wanted to get off sequence with them there. And when I did not as many people pit as I had hoped, so we were a little bit further back and he got back to what you're referencing fourth or 5th in no time. And I was like, this gives us a huge advantage, you know? Restart stepping on our forte in our strength and chasing an amazing job with that. And that was really the first kind of indication that I was like, all right, this thing's pretty good. The restart thing, like, you put anybody in the right situation and you can look like a hero, right? I don't think there's anything special I did. You can take a car that isn't balanced as well as what ours was tonight and have the right lane choice and the right guys get bottled up at the right time and you pass three or four of them, you know? So I don't necessarily think that was the turning point for me. I feel like it was a more just a balanced thing in feeling like we were we had got it really close. And then from there, just trying to execute and have good restarts up front and have get pissed off. So there's chase Elliott's rather modest assessment of going from 14th to 6th on a restart with 90 laps remaining. He didn't think that was a turning point, but certainly Alan Gustafson did, and I know you guys both think these restarts were really key. Well, I think you heard what Alan said is he was calling a race to beat the Toyotas. He felt like heads up. They were going to be hard to pass, so he made their strategic call. I say it all the time. They're playing chess, two or three moves ahead. He made a strategic call to take tires, knew he was going to lose some spots, lost more than he wanted. I'm sure deep down was thinking, man, what have I done? And just like that, his driver kicked him right back up and he went from oh no to oh yes. In one set of corners. And I hear what chase is saying and he's not wrong. These race car drivers are all amazing and put in the right situation. But at the same time, everybody else didn't do what he did it. Yeah. And that's I guess what I'll say, Jeff. I've learned race car drivers can be humble when they don't want the attention, but the simple fact is when it mattered, he did it. And that's all we can analyze. Well, the thing about chase is that had he been on the bottom of that bin for the lead and the guy passing on the outside, he would have taken the blame for it. Let's just say Elliot. I mean, it's just who he is. I love his modesty. I think it's how he checks himself. I think that what he does is he just looks and says, hey, I'm not that special. I got to work hard. I got to do my thing. If I'm going to be successful, I'm okay, hey man, that's what makes it tick for you, then do you do what you got to do? But I think when he goes back and he really thinks about that race, that was a huge restart and giving them an opportunity to win this race. All right, so let's take a look at how chase Elliott won this race, the turning point at Nashville, superspeedway. And Stevie, I know you want to talk about these restarts, the pieces were really key. Yeah, so we heard it right. Allen got to sit right here. This is the call he's talking about. You see the 9 first car on pit road. This is coming down to get a little fresh retires, 15, 20 lap fresh retires in the Toyotas, unfortunately for chase, not a whole lot of cars came with them. So that puts them all the way back here in traffic Jeff. And then here you go, right? They're all going to kind of get stacked up and look at Chase climb to the top. This is impressive. Yeah, just straight to the top. Three wide. Yep, what he's saying is, hey, nobody was in front of me. I was able to get around them, but look at the momentum he has. And look at the 5 car, the 5 car.

"Won in Nashville for the second year in a row, boner sports has been in the victory lane. In Nashville. So next year, can they make it three in a row? Yeah, good question, Chandler. You know, this is too concrete wins this year for Hendrick as well. It chase wanted Dover, so have they got something figured out for Nashville and Dover. I think they have something figured out in Nashville and don't remember, they went one, two, three, four, and over. Yep, just a short while back, so I think that they're good at the concrete tracks. The other thing is when you look at the summer, Nashville is one of the last few kind of ovals to figure it out before you get in the playoffs. I know that sounds silly with 9 races to go. But I mean, look what we have left, right? Like Atlanta's now a speedway race. We got road course, a couple more road courses. We go back to Richmond. So as we talk about approaching, we start in January, trying to win the day to one of 500. Soon as you leave, the day you leave the Daytona 500, try to get four cars in the playoffs. And they didn't win the 500, four cars. Check, check, check. So as you're going down the road, now it's like, what are we learning? You know, we went to Nashville we had practice. It's kind of the last, not the last, but one of the last ovals in the regular season is crazy as it sounds all the way in June, but it really is crazy to think about it. So I think that's why this was the race that propelled Kyle Larson in my mind to all those playoff points and Jeff, when we look at the points, the opportunity to seize this year is out there still. There's a lot of guys very equal, which could make great playoffs, but if you can, hit a hot streak here in the next 8 weeks. Your playoffs can become much more obtainable to advance without being perfect. Yeah, the point thing is very interesting. You snow body has a major advantage. And we just were looking at the races coming up. The podcast. There's a lot of X Factor races. There's so many X factors. I mean, where's your rule, right? New Hampshire? Pocono? No, indie's a road course, Michigan, maybe. Michigan's maybe the last standard old. Yeah. Listen, you ask about next year. I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow next week. I don't have any clues. This is such a competitive view. Yeah. Lots to talk about the rest of the season, lots to talk about here on NASCAR America motor mouse, when we come back, we'll discuss how chase Elliott won his second race of the season, winning at Nashville, superspeedway yesterday. Welcome back to NASCAR America motormouth, another big week for motor sports.

"Him and Alan Gustafson to make at the end of this race and it worked out for me. A big call, make adjustments. I'm not going to say they did everything, right? They had to pit stop woes as well. They were just fortunate enough. Theirs were early in the race, gave them time to recover. Be honest, I'm not sure there was a team that didn't have some sort of pit stop woes on pit road. But you know, want a Dover. Now he's one here for once it was only road courses. Now it's concrete. I think that Alan Gustafson, the most senior crew chief Andrew motor sports, his time with Chase Elliott, their championship, caliber group. They've won a championship before. So in a week that everything was tested, it doesn't surprise me that that unison that driver crew chief combination, the weather, the adjustments, the changes, the calls, fell their way. I think that's one of their strengths is working through challenges and the challenge could be a day long or a month long, but they seem to stick arm in arm. That's what they did on Sunday, in my mind, Jeff, as they stuck together and battled through it. Yeah, well, one thing we talked about as soon as we came back from The Rain delay is how different the racetrack was going to be. The temperature dropped. It felt like 30°. And we knew right then it was going to be a major change in how the car drove. We didn't know who was going to figure it out. Alan guth is really, really smart. In my opinion, an underrated crew chief in the cup garage. He wins races, one of them for a long time, builds very fast race cars, and he and chase Elliott did the best job of everybody of getting their car to drive the way it needed to drive. It went in time in a condition that no one was expecting. So, you know, we could talk about he had a great restart with three to go three restarts to the end. He had a great restart. We could talk about that. We could talk about Kyle Busch's and his team's decision to fit all those things. But at the end of the day, those two.

"I'm your host Nate Ryan. Joined by the mayor, Jeff Burton, here on the Monday after the Nashville superspeedway race. They kicked off the 2022 NASCAR and NBC scheduled Jeff. A lot to talk about along day. Nashville super speedway. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, NASCAR NBC openers seem to be affected by rain on an annual basis, but we still got a really compelling, interesting race, good racing throughout, despite the two delays for three hours. So I want to start with how chase Elliott won this race. And I think it comes down to two restarts and probably neither one being the one that most people were talking about. Obviously, most people were talking about the last restart where several cars pitted and it kind of jumped the order and chase Elliot held off Kurt Busch and his second race of the season. But I want to focus on the two restarts before that. And we'll start with the first being the second to last restart the race. Chase Elliott led the last 39 laps after taking the lead from Kyle Busch on a lap two 62 restart, chased it from the inside lane after Kyle had chosen the outside. Dustin long NBC sports chased with about 40 to go on that restart with the 18. You were on the inside. He chose the outside. Can you take me through that and what worked for you at that point? The 18 did it to the 19 restart prior to that. So I felt like the opportunity was there to do it. You know, if the circumstances go your way, unfortunately, they did. So once we got to leave there, it was just trying to control. You control my gap to him, run my race, manage my tires, the best I could, and not lose the lead. What did you make of that second to last restart? Because you talk all the time about how important restarts are. And it's not always the last one, and it seemed like that one was critical. It was critical because as the track cooled down, I felt like chase Elliott, Alan gustin, those guys did a better job of keeping up with the track or getting ahead of the track. The best they were was at winning time. But chase Elliott had to go get it done. So on that next to last restart, it's a tough choice there. Almost every track that size, you want to go to the top. And one of the reasons that has been a selection to go to the top, I really believe is still the mentality of the old car. Because with the old car, you could get on the outside of somebody and have so much momentum, it would suck the air away from them. They lose grip. This car doesn't do that. And so I think that drivers are going to have to really start pushing themselves a little bit to think more like we used to and what's the shortest way around the racetrack. I'm not saying that Kyle Busch chose wrong. I'm just saying that there are some things that you have to think differently because of this car. Chase and Kyle had a great race right there. And chase just had a little better car, was able to make more grip and get by. But again, it was I'm not saying Kyle made the wrong choice. Ultimately it was because it didn't work. But it might have been the same result, had Kyle picked the bottom, but I do think it's going to push drivers to think a little differently with this car. That's interesting. We heard from Chase saying that he had seen Kyle Busch do it to Truex. The restart prior. So maybe it is something that drivers are still kind of working their way through here, midway through the first season of next gen. Chase closing out this race though, the way that he did, Jeff, we've heard or we haven't heard it. We were sort of implicit in it. The knock on chase is first few years in the Cup Series was when is this guy going to close out races? And now he closes it out against a two time champion, one of the best drivers in NASCAR history and Kyle Busch. Yeah, listen, chase Elliott is a really, really good race car driver, still a really young, still has given up some experience so a guy liked Kyle Busch. You know, when those moments present themselves, it's so important to find a way to execute on them. Because you really don't get that many chances compared to every other sport in the world, right? Except for maybe goth. You really don't get that many chances to win races. And so those people that can find a way in those key moments, those are the ones that are our champions and win a lot of races and they just kind of I don't know how to say it other than they will themselves to some of those wins. They just find a way to make it happen. And chase on the bottom right there, racing against sky. Two of the very best in our business going at it and chase found a way. And I also, I know you want to talk about the prior to that. Yeah, prior to that. Listening to post race comments by crew chief Alex and he said that the third from the N restart was when he thought they were going to win a race because Chase was able to go I think from 16th to 6th or 14th, 14th and 6th and one lap, which is what Kyle Busch needed to make happen after he pitted, he restarted 12th, he had to make a move like chase Elliott was able to make. And just couldn't do it. So that's when Allen said, hey, you know, in this race is ours. We're going to win this race, so you just got to track position. We got ourselves where we need to be. And it just shows you, like you never know, you know, when you're watching these races, you never know when the race went and move happened. It could have been 50 laps ago when something happened and in this case it was a series of restarts that chase Elliott was able to execute on and get track position with. What turned out to be the best car at that time of day. And chase Elliott also had the advantage of that restart happened on lap two ten. So he still had 90 laps and the restart you're talking about with Kyle that came with four laps to go. Yes. How did it make any spots? Yeah. You know, that was the problem with Kyle, is that when he drove into turn one, he knew what he had to do. He knew he had to go to the top and, you know, the sea had to kind of park for him and it got four wide in front of him. He was done. As soon as they drove into turn one, and they were four wide in front of Kyle. Game over. You know, there's no way he's going to win. He might get clawed out of better finish, but there was no way he could win. So as I mentioned, there were two restarts you touched on it. One of them was that second restart we just talked about on lap two ten, the third to last restart, where chase goes from 14th to 6th in one lap with some fairly aggressive maneuvers. And I asked both chase and Alan Gustafson about this after the race, Gustafson said, as you just said, Jeff, Gustafson said, I felt like that was kind of the moment in the race. I was like, all right, we should win this race. Ultimately, I didn't feel like we were going to pass the 19 and 19 at the time on equal ground. So I wanted to get off sequence with him there. And when I did not as many people pit as I had hoped, so we were a little bit further back and he got back to what you're referencing fourth or 5th in no time. And I was like, this gives us a huge advantage, you know? And I think he's a testament to how good the 19 was, it was just really took us a long time to pass him, but then certainly we got past him. We're able to track cow down pretty quick order there. So yeah, that was a big deal. Restarts typically on our forte and our strength and chased an amazing job with that and that was really the first kind of indication I knew we were getting better. You just don't know how good you are because we weren't really in the best track position and that was the first indication that I was like, all right, this thing's pretty good. Chase isn't conservative, but he's not really known for that kind of aggression. Take your breath away a little bit. Yeah, it's as far as you up. You're like, all right, here we go. And like you said, you know, he's not conservative at.

"Side and join us. Welcome back to NASCAR. America motor mounts and the Kyle Petty charity ride got started this past weekend. They are taking the green flag at Phoenix raceway side of the NASCAR championship race on NBC. So Kyle Petty cherry ride underway, once again, a full fledged effort this year after a pause for the pandemic the last two years, they're back in full effect this year, great to see it. And we are back here, NASCAR American motor mouse back here with Jeff Burton, Steve LUT and your phone calls. We're going to get started with William on the line. William, welcome to NASCAR America motormouth. Hey, Nate, thank you. So Steve and Jeff, my question for you guys is, do you guys honestly think we're going to see a type of Kyle Larson view to like we saw with this championship year last year? So Kyle Larson still is remarkable talent, but last year is going to be hard to duplicate. I mean, it was an amazing run, I mean, both in the NASCAR world, out of the NASCAR world, the NASCAR wins, the championship. Kyle Larson's going to have an amazing career. And I think it's unfair if we're going to continue to judge him off as initial championship year that is like one for the record books. Do I think he's going to go on and win a handful of races and be around in the later stages of the playoffs? I believe he will be. But I think it's unfair to expect him to try to duplicate what he did last year. I think he's going to get better all year long. I think he's a serious threat for the championship. I still think he's the best driver on the racetrack right now, driving for the best organization and the best manufacturer at the moment. So I think you'll be a threat. And the second part of your question, no, there is not truth in the rumor that Rick Allen has training wheels on his bike out of the car Betty charity. We all did ask that answer. Yeah, I think he did. We all went there on the answer to that question. Going back to the Kyle Larson part though, he spun, you were talking about earlier, Steven. I mean, he spun by himself at Dover, which speaks to, again, the level of the degree of difficulty of this next gen car. And is that can we kind of pin it on that? Is it just that he is struggling with figuring this thing out as much as anybody else as much as you seem more than just a mere mortal last year when he won the championship? Oh, I wouldn't put it a struggle, so this is why you should cheer for Kyle Larson. Because he's not going to ride around and take 8th or 9th or tenth is okay that he's willing to would you say he's willing to fail. He's willing to get close enough to the edge that he's okay. He's not probably happy about it. But he's okay to show the world that he's human. They wrapped. He got a little too aggressive. He got in the gas or something happened, the car got too loose and he spun out and I think that's what makes him who he is. Like I think that why he could jump at a dirt late model and he's okay if he gets beat by the trap champ. Yep, you're better me today. And that humble approach. I think that, you know, you got to go back and fill it the full scope of Kyle Larson. Everything he's been through. And I think his talent behind the wheel has matured. He has matured his comfort level as the organization. We all know Rick Kendrick very well as a mentor to just to put him in a position that it's okay. You don't have to be perfect. You can make mistakes and if you just give us your best that's going to be good enough and unfortunately for most, his best is really, really, really good. So I think it's just one more reason that someone could cheer for Kyle Larson. The guy spun out on his own and yeah, you know, was okay with it. Yeah. All right, let's go back to the lines. Chandler joining us. Chandler, welcome to NASCAR America motor mounts. Hey, guys. Now, I know this is a little bit early. I wasn't going to ask you guys this on Wednesday, but I'm really curious, we got a lot of good pain schemes, you know, for this weekend at Darlington and looking at all three series, the cub extending the truck, what is your guys that you're paying scheme? I mean, throwback payments came from those three different series. I'll be honest, I haven't seen a whole lot come out. I always love that we get to see them all. When we go down there, I saw Fox is going to put three different holler in favors in the booth. So we get to hear Richard and I can't wait to hit the king on a TV broadcast and $1 million Bill, and he bought a little bonus. This is going to be a lot to tune in for this weekend, but I think that Darlington has done a great job of giving this race that identity of this throwback to allow the teams and sponsors perhaps the one that don't get enough credit Jeff. When the sponsors get behind it, they really get great. Yeah, it's a great weekend. It's fun. You go down there and you see a lot of people that haven't been to the racetrack in a long time because they come and they see the car that they worked on or whatever it happens to be. Darlington's done a great job. I thought that bragging a little bit. I thought NBC did a great job of building that thing up and running with him and Fox is doing the same thing. I'm like, you I haven't seen them all yet. I like to wait the week of and start building myself up. So I haven't seen them all. Is there one involving you this year? Because there's been one in the past, right? You can throw back far. You can't throw back without final Jeff Bernstein. I'm not like, you know, no, no, you did. Passing aspersions that it's been that long, but you've been honored before on throwback weekend. He's a candidate for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. It's not like I'm casting aspersions on his career here. Oh, speaking of Hall of Fame, Wednesday, right? This decisions are made on Wednesday. So Wednesday show, I'm sure there's going to be some discussion. So many great options is going to be interesting to see who goes in. Good luck. I hope it's the guy set next to us to be great. We will have all the nominees and the inductees Wednesday. We'll learn who is going to be the pioneer winner, the modern award winner, all of that. So lot to come here at NASCAR motor mouse a lot today. We appreciate you joining us. Thanks to Ricky Carmichael, jet Lawrence, Lee debut for joining us as well. Talk to you next time..

So welcome you back in, we've got Ricky Carmichael, our Supercross analyst, and joining us, we have our playback play Supercross announcer Lee diffie, both of you guys will be calling the season finale and you're both here. Welcome to NASCAR America motor mouse lead. Hi, Alison. Thanks for having me on. Good. Yep, yep. Good to see you, my man. It was a real incredible season for Eli Tomac. And the reason that I say that, I mean, if you're Eli Tomac, you were at Monster Energy Kawasaki for a really long time. And then you take a leap of faith because really that Monster Energy Yamaha star racing team hadn't proved theirself in four 50 Supercross yet. So the people outside were probably thinking, man, this is a gutsy move for Eli Tomac to do that. But I think us inside internally knew what that team could give Eli and Eli wanted some freedom to change some things on his bike. And if he wanted to try different stuff on the suspension, he didn't have to go through so much red tape. And I feel like you have to be able to do that this day and age. If you feel in the rider feels like it's something right, just go out there and try it and give that rider the responsibility and if it's not, okay, then you take it back and house. So he came out and you got to give credit not only to Eli, but that race team as well because Eli has a starter, his whole career hasn't been the best. There's no secrets about it, and then he just comes out this year firing. I would say on an average and Lee, you could tell me if I'm wrong. He was a completely better starter this year than he ever has been. And I just don't think that the team gets enough credit. Well, and think about as you well know, because the team purchased your old training facility, the goat farm. They moved from one coast to the other, they had a lot of personnel change their lives. So for Eli, his life didn't change. He stayed where he was in Colorado. So all he was doing was working for a different team in a different manufacturer, which is huge in itself. But for the team, holistically, it was a massive change. And for Jeremy coker and for the whole organization, I think to achieve that in its first year with Eli was something special. And I want to go back just really quickly before we get to jet Lawrence. I want to go back to when we were in Boston a couple of weeks ago, sat down, had about 15 minutes without producer Aaron feldstein and myself with Eli Tomac. And I said to him, take this, however, whatever way you want to take it. I said, did you expect this to happen this year? And he was very swift to say, no. And I don't mean that the wrong way. He said, you know, I don't mean to be not positive. I'm not being negative, but I didn't want to be that copy to think that I could just walk on into a new team, new manufacturer, and win straight away, said I thought that would be quite tough. I thought I'd have a chance, but I didn't expect to be championed straight away. Maybe needed some settle in time. So yes, there's been some attrition in this championship, but even if even if the writers who have not been participating for the majority of this season, even if they were there, I don't think the result would have been any different, do you? I just think he was that good and you go back and you see how many Wednesdays when he's at 44. He's tied with Chad read for the fourth all time winning Supercross eraser. He's got one more to get into that to claim that four spots and not being a tie and just with all those wins and all the years of learning things to do right. Things to do wrong. I mean, I thought he could do what he did this year and it's great to see him finally throw away the old Eli, you know, for so many years he's like, okay, is Eli going to roll around in 7th and 8th place? That's not the case this year. So for me, it's refreshing to see Eli be able to make that. And I had high hopes for him. It was unfortunate that not all the guys were in the series for all of the races, but at the end of the day, you know, I still think he would have been one of the best guys to beat. All right, so Eli Tomac becomes a four 50 champion. We also have the two 50 east champion joining us now on the program we've got jet Lawrence. Here with us as well. Joining Lee diffie and Ricky Carmichael and here we see jet Lawrence celebrating with champagne and Foxborough, preclinical title a couple of weeks ago. So guys, I'll let you take away the interview with jet lords. Well, jet, you've had a little bit of time. You've had a little bit of time to all sink in. And winning championships is nothing new for you. But to win a Monster Energy AMA Supercross championship certainly is something different. So now that you've had time to digest it and to think about it and to get all of those emails and texts and phone calls of congratulations, how is it and how much does it mean to you? It's awesome obviously and it's cool to get this super cross championship because I mean I've had the most struggles with this. I've been knocked down so many times a lot of crashes and injuries so it's definitely feels really good and hope back in this keeper clicking off some more but no I see all the messages from friends family and I love every single.

"For him. Yeah. He's being a selfish race car driver, which, by the way, is what his owner wants him to be. And he has got to learn and he wants to. I've had this conversation with Ross. He doesn't want everybody to be mad at him. He wants to be a good citizen in the community. He's learning how to do it. And it doesn't happen overnight. He's a young race car driver and it's learning how to win races and consistently running the front. I can promise you, you raise different for third than you do for 25th. It's a completely different and he's learning how to do that. Yeah. All right, let's go back to the phones, NASCAR all joining us on NASCAR, American motor miles NASCAR, welcome to the program. Hey, thank you all. So up to this point, you know, I felt that Ford has been running good, Chevy, and there was Toyota. But after today in the last couple of races, especially with 7 now, like you said, Steve fuck's in her muscle and Toyota gained some ground, I'm feeling like maybe four to starting to get a step behind her. They're losing a step. What say you are, do you all feel the same? This seems clear to me that at Dover and I would say if I had to grade for the year Ford seems to be the distant third, they are very organized and efficient at Daytona, Cedric getting the win, but they had a lot of horses at the end of that race that could have won that race. And I believe that as the information is kind of matriculating out and as these teams are learning, it just seems to me that Toyota has some early cooling issues, maybe a mechanical woes earlier in the year. Since their past that, I mean, look at the rundown, right? You have a couple three Chevys, a Toyota, another chef. It's a mix up front. My bigger concern in the Ford camp is I would want to be excited about Chris buscher running 8. But I'm not excited that Chris busher ran 8 that's the best Ford. Great for RFK and Chris bush or sat on pole rain ain't that is, I don't want to take the wind out of his sails, but you're looking at the only forward inside the top. Well, no, I guess Kevin was behind him two Fords inside the top ten. You're looking at three Penske outside the top 25. Man, it's just, that's rare. Well on the season, one win. Right. And that's what they don't. I mean, you're talking about two with Briscoe. That's why brisket. I miss Briscoe. Two with Briscoe,.

"And he didn't push up in a wall. He turned away from the wall and now he's pulling to the inside wall. And it was really odd. I mean, if I'm Martin Truex, I'm thinking this is my spot right here. I mean, I don't blame Martin for being upset. And by the way, I can't completely blame Ross for blocking him. But you got to know when you bought somebody that's going to come back to you. If I'm driving the 19 car and I got that kind of run through the middle of one and two, that's my spot. You're not coming up on me. So that happened while Ross and Martin Truex Junior were racing for third. Last lap, Stevie. We were talking about before the show. Truex was very frustrated at the fact that Chastain was as he put it on his team radio tricks was saying that Chastain was mirror driving and it did not like that. They had a post race discussion, Truex left frustrate. I'm sure he didn't like what Ross Chastain had to hear. What's your take on that entire system? Well, so I think the evolution of how races go on heads continue to change since the 80s, the 90s. This isn't a new conversation, right? From Dale's senior to Jeff Gordon from Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, what was an acceptable level of aggression? What was the acceptable level of positions? You know, when I first entered NASCAR, if you ran a guy down, you expected to get a hand out the window and given the position you've kind of proven you were faster. Then it got to the point where using the air to block became acceptable and not acceptable. What I've learned through my entire career is that the drivers have to police this themselves. And I don't think either of them are wrong because they both are professional race car drivers who both win races. Now one is a champion. And perhaps the champions voice should be heard more, but if Ross Chastain listened to every veteran, would he be a two time winner this year. Because he has his own style. I have thought that Ross has been a little less aggressive than we have seen in years past. I don't have as big a problem with the mirror driving throughout the day. I don't love this move right here. For the win, that's all fair, in my opinion. But I believe there was an opportunity for Ross to put a few more coins in the bank with Martin Truex Junior. Like, I know I made it hard on you all day, but when you finally got the run on the last lap, I'm going to give you the top and three and four. And I still may beat you to the line, but I'm going to give you the top. I don't think he meant to do anything back, but I wonder if Ross isn't going to look at that after and be like, you know, I don't think I was in the wrong, but I could have been closer to the right and only giving up one point. I already got my wins, not an enemy I want to have because trucks are going to be around them all the time. Yeah. I mean, they both are fast. So Ricky Carmichael's on the show later and I can guarantee you that he will tell you that drivers don't come with an owner's manual. Yeah. Like, there's no code. You have your own code. And one guy thinks one thing's right and another guy thinks another. And that's just how it is. That's how it's always been. There's no rule about blocking not blocking and NASCAR. You do what you think is right. And the guy behind you, he's got to deal with it, and he's got to do what he thinks right. And that's where we get in these situations. Well, you shouldn't do that. I shouldn't do that. I can tell you that when young drivers, when I was a young driver, I came in to NASCAR and there were times people were like, you're too aggressive at this point in the event, practice qualifying, whatever. And then I remember Dale junior runner was one of his first experiences and I got my hand out the window getting the number one solution because I'm like, what are you doing? Calm down, right? And it was like, why are you doing this right now? And after the race, he's like, why are you mad? And it was because it wasn't the time. But he was young and ready to go. And he wasn't wrong. I thought he was wrong, but that didn't make him wrong. And everybody has a different code and you just got to live by it and try to be disrespectful as your code allows you to be. The concern moving forward is that right there wrecked Martin trex junior. Right. Right. So you have to ask yourself next time, is it the one car that gets exactly? You know, my point is, I don't think two X thought he was going to wreck with whatever he did, but the result was the 19 ended up wrecked. That's part of my question here is that you said Ross Chastain, you call him a rising superstar. And I agree. He is unquestionably, maybe the best driver so far this year in the Cup Series last week, AJ on my dinger said, I could be racing a future champion this year when he was raised him from when a coda. But the narrative with Ross has been to your point, Jeff, the discussions of veterans with younger drivers. He's had that discussion with Kevin Harvick with Kurt Busch. Have we oversold that a little bit or does that calculus change a little bit? Now he's got two wins and he's going to be racing these guys for a title and he's like, eh, maybe I'm not going to take your advice so much anymore. Listen, Ross Chastain is going through a transformation trying to figure out how can I be a cup champion? And we've seen this over and over where a guy comes in and he's super aggressive and he's got a dollar back. We've seen other guys come in that need to gain aggression. They've got to find a way to be aggressive. Very few young drivers have ever been able to come into sport and not go through a transition of learning when and how often to be aggressive. I don't think Ross Chastain is out there and just I'm going to make everybody mad. He's out there for him. Yeah. He's being a selfish race car driver, which, by the way, is what his owner wants him to be. And he has got to learn and he wants to..

"And over and over how playoff points matter. You can not just say, hey, we won. Now we can go and have bad races. It doesn't work like that. This is all from practice. It was last time we saw we saw this at California. Now we saw it here. I mean, these short practices are so difficult because save you when they drop the green flag, you gotta go. Like you can't go out and say, well, I'm a ride around and feel my car, see how it feels. There's a drive okay. No, you got 15 minutes. You got to roll. And so when you go to a track like door, you go to track like California. We're going to Darlington. This coming weekend. That will be so much easier. So much easier. So what do you do? Roll out there and just ride around in the first apple and tires is the best. I mean, you know, so it's putting these drivers and teams in a very unique situation. I will say this and I chase Elliott fans and know you everywhere. Don't ride me bad letters. The best thing for Hendrick motor sports. Hear me out is for chase Elliot to be the last guy to win. And when I say that, what Hendrick mode would make any organization great is that when other teams can push each other. Internally, if Alex Bowman can be pushing and making Chase Elliott better, that's what you want. Kyle Larson, we know he's pushing. They got all their guys went and races. And whoever's the last guy to win, it just is what it is. And that's when Rick Hendrick is back smiling. He's sitting there saying, okay, I got all this figured out. And they're going to make each other better. If you're going to win races, you got to beat the guys in this building. And that will make chase Elliott better. That will push the most popular driver in the sport that will push him to be better and ultimately push him to win more races. Rick Hendrick and chase Elliott not the only ones that are smiling because it is NASCAR's most popular driver, so I'm sure we've got a lot of chase LA fans who want to talk to us today. A lot of phone calls, I'm sure, on a very eventful day at Dover. And we're going to get started with Shelby here on NASCAR America motormouth. Shelby, welcome to the program. What you got? If trace Elliot was on the line, my question would obviously be what is the biggest difference in the steering in this year's race car from last year's race car and also thank you for being my favorite driver. All right, there you go. I'll give it to the driver. I know physically what's different. It's a completely different system. Just how it operates under the hood is nothing, anything at all like the other car. But from the actual feedback, I know you've talked a lot of drivers. It seems to be much quicker. And I think that some of these single car Rex is just, you get to the point where I don't want to say they get behind on the steering, but if you used to move your hands a couple inches that perhaps is too much on this car, you have to almost slow everything down. Yeah, that's exactly what happens. It actually on pit road and in the garage area, you have to turn the car a great deal and on the track you don't turn it much at all. And so you get behind just a little bit. Now what we are seeing here is that drivers aren't over correct and driving the right front into the wall, which is what we were seeing early in the year. The drivers have learned, we can not over correct these cars, meaning if you turn it to the right to catch the car when it's loose, keeping it from spinning out. You don't turn it too far on the ride. It hangs it right and head on in the wall. The drivers are learning how to do that. That's a good thing. But it's just a quicker Syrian. You turn the wheel this much, the car goes like that as opposed to last year, you have to turn it this much to get to go to go to the same direction. And do you have a correction seem to be the problem with Martin Truex Junior when he had his issue with chip Ross just in the last lap? That was really odd looking to me. It's almost like when Ross came up, it kind of pushed the nose of Martin's car up and then he turned left to get out of the wall. And the next thing you know, he's pointed to the inside wall. And now he got behind, you got behind on the serum, but right here, he thinks he's got the spot. And he didn't push up in a wall. He turned away from the wall and now he's pulling to the inside wall. And it was really odd. I mean, if I'm Martin Truex, I'm thinking.

"Welcome to NASCAR America motormouth, Nate Ryan here with Jeff Burton, Steve Lu chart later on the show. We'll have Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael joining us along with newly minted two 50 champion jet Lawrence Lee diffie also be joining us as well. But we decide big weekend and motor sports and just ended today. We watched the conclusion of the NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover motor speedway. What'd you guys think? An extended weekend, which nobody wanted. I was happy to see some fans were able to come back out again on a Monday. It ran out. It's awful for everybody. Luckily for the teams the next week is a Darlington so a little bit closer to home, but you know, I was a bit nervous heading to Dover not knowing how the car would perform a short practice, maybe my nerves were good reason. We saw 5 cars spin out or wreck in practice. We saw some single car wrecks in the race, but in the end, I thought that it had a little bit of everything. Tire strategy was important as far as saving some tires, pitting at the right time. There was a green flag pit stop that got messed up by a caution and in the end I thought it was a kind of a head to head battle between a defending chant or a champion and chase Elliott and this new rising superstar in Ross Chastain and I think Ross Jess gained this one's gonna sting, Jeff, because I thought he had a chance. I don't think he did anything wrong. I just think chase Elliott took it from him and won the race. Yeah, well, first of all, what an incredible crowd on Sunday. What are the shame it rain? Because that place was packed, one of us fun to see Dover when it's packed as an environment that's very unique, very loud. That was good to see. Listen, I thought chase Elliott just took the win. I thought chase Elliott just said, okay, it's time to go. I'm gonna flex my muscles. I'm gonna win this race and he just took the win. I don't think Ross Chastain did a thing wrong there. He just got out run. And now chase Elliott doesn't have to listen to it anymore. Right, right. Hey, I won, I can do it. Like he does not have to listen to why your teammates win and you're not. Now hitting the motor sports and in my opinion, Chevrolet just continues to flex their muscles. They're just doing it better than everybody else. Now you got him and victory lane as well. Yeah, it was a really important win for chase because as you mentioned, Jeff, the last Hendrick driver to win this season, but also he ends a 26 26 race winless streak, but he hadn't won a noble Stevie since the 2020 championship race at Phoenix, and he talked about it after the race today. He's had a lot get away. And we talked about it in the podcast a few weeks ago. He and Alan Gustafson have kind of struggled to put a race together. And today, chase Elliott said that was the key to this win. Was they put a complete race together? On a day of a lot of strategy plays, they executed correctly. So it's funny because during this downtime, I don't think anyone pointed a finger internally or even externally. Like we had this pointed discussion about how is the 9? And we were kind of like, well, we're surprised I haven't won. We think they're going to one because Chase is going to have to start answering some difficult questions. Alan and him are going to have to sit down and figure out what the issue was. It wasn't a question of if or when, but the bigger question is, could they get through it? That's easy to say, but it's hard to do when all your teammates who have your equipment are winning races. Now that this is behind them, I think Jeff points out Chevrolet and Hendrick motor sports, I think this is a scary proposition for the rest of the field because now they have four locked in. So now in a season with very small practice windows and so much to learn, they don't really have any other priorities other than playoff points and waiting for the playoffs to give you I mean, look at the leaderboard, right? Now all four of their names are in yellow, four out of the 9 names. I don't want camp Jeff, 15 minutes of practice you've been almost every race. It goes by in a blank, having this kind of agenda already checked off is gonna help. This is a different year than in the past. I think in the past, we heard drivers say, hey, we're gonna experiment. We're gonna try things. I think that's a little harder this year. Because there's so many unknowns. We saw how many people wrecked it door this weekend, right? A lot of that has to do with just they don't know this car. They don't understand it. And so, you know, it's one thing to say, hey, we're gonna go test, because we're already winning. But what does that mean? With 15 minutes of practice with limited track time, I think it changes the game. And we have seen over.

"Then anybody else there in state completely under control That's what makes him so fast between something they have in their breaking and something that he has in his ability allows that to happen. And i'm pretty sure that kevin harvick who was looking to see. Was that going to happen at that time and probably made an effort to get a little farther. He had time to pass these other cars and get those spots back. That didn't have to happen right at that moment and i just believed that in that quick glance it only as we've seen in the four races that have happened that the row you only have to go a few feet too far into that corner and you find yourself into that wall. Exactly where harvick win. So i think that was a major factor in that happening. I think that if the non cars not coming there. I think first of all he was totally surprised. He didn't have any idea as most of us did that happened. When i saw that car. I said you know he's totally crashed. And that team dealer remarkable job and then they got some good fortune and we can have that discussion about the the rear bumper. Finally flying off But giving him the caution that he needs to get back there so. I don't think he ever expected to have that happen. You know. i think he was going to be more prepared. Thinking that if there was going to be retribution on that day that chase going to have to slow down. Wait on him and so he could could see and plan for that but to have him in as mirror. I think it took him by surprise. That's interesting chase elliott. Being pretty much the exquisite best in class road course race or the is that in knowing that he can go a little bit deeper in the corner coupled with the motivation of with this guy wants it made it natural like that was happened. We didn't get the answer this question. Either i did ask chase elliott. This question i asked him if harvey hadn't crashed and he had.

Who's locked up a spot in round two. Also clinching on points. Kyle larson trying to be one of the other nine drivers who are going to move on chase. Elliott is currently ranked seventh and fortunate to finish fourth at richmond following a problem pitstop when the reigning champ thought he had slid through his pit box so i just kind of took it upon myself to back up. Tj already hit the right side. Jack and at that point. I should know not to but obviously i wouldn't have broke the jack if i knew it was going to break the jack so i just didn't want to stop over the line.
