"Networks across the US and available internationally on the American forces network. Welcome back to the down and dirty radio show powered by palabras razor like to roll into Fisher our port this week, we're going to be talking, some AR a rally up there in Idaho with my partner crime. Tiffany, stone stone, welcome to the show. Hello, good. What is good morning? Good afternoon now. Good afternoon, east coast. It's funny too because I've always Detroit. I've never thought is east coast. I've always kind of seen that as like a mid- middle America type of thing but you guys are eastern time zone. So it's like always throw me off. I always felt like she Michigan should be central time for some reason. I don't know. I'm kind of weird that way. But I've always thought it should be. Well, if you're an economic UP remember, you know, whenever where bark river, everybody's okay. Set, your watches set, your clocks, everything to eastern time, because it would go back and forth. You know ask them I was right there on the time zone which is so one day where one time it'll be like two PM. But then if you like, walk a hundred feet at three pm so it's fun. It's probably because you got Detroit Chicago like you've got some massive cities, right there. And, you know, and I think probably for business practices than being aligned with, like New York City. And, and, you know in Boston, and that it probably for big business, probably makes more sense to be on eastern. I would assume right. You know, I don't know way about my pig. It is. But the crazy thing is Chicago is an hour behind us. I would have thought they were on eastern too. I don't know. See I'm so screwed up. Just because you looking at a map, you're just like okay, well, this makes sense. But now it's that and I'm just like, oh, okay. Well didn't know that some of drunk when they designed the time straight up, like I think they just threw like some squiggly lines on paper and just like this works. Yeah. Chicago's an hour behind. Well, the one thing that screws me up a little bit. And you can talk about this because of their own is you don't spring forward. We don't train. Exactly. It's so weird. Yeah. So, yeah. Sometimes we'll only be two hours apart. Sometimes, we're three hours apart, like, I don't know. I like it, but it works for us. But and I know they've actually talked about making it a nationwide thing, which I think, you know, could actually happen at some point. But it only makes sense of the entire country were to do that and not bounce around. But I don't know. That's. That story for another day, I do have something for you. Roll into talking some area rally with you, though, I posted on your Instagram. I said, we are absolutely going to talk about this. I said, I got to put you on the spot because I thought it was funniest damn picture ever the hell you like trying out for Greece or something. So that was a, a shot that I did for a look book, so in modeling world or the fashion world, there's been called books. You know, they come out at the beginning of the summer or the spring, or the fall or winter, and it showcases like the type of by or the style of the fashion death for that season. And so this was for a Pelly Pelly look book and the probably probably Letterman jacket and stuff. And then that whole vibe with the tall socks and the roller skates just reminded me of Greece. So the whole, you know, sandy from Greece Tommy about it started. And then I thought about it. I was like, I think I really just aged myself. However, I just came out with a new Greece so that maybe I didn't. But that's from, you know, the. Newton John and John Travolta days. No, I was laughing. I saw it. I'm like, but now you're saying look book, I'm like, is it really so many that we get like a Letterman jacket in that pink outfit? Like, is that really a look people went for during summer that year. Like, like, I don't know man, maybe obviously we're not we're not stylish Arizona, I'm gonna that going if that was a look book. I don't know anybody that actually bought into that, look, no jacket, but we saw the whole vibe of that series. We were at like a fifty sock. Hop driving type thing with old classic cars. So I actually do have the look of maybe I'll posted on Instagram later or whatnot. But so what it is, is. It's just showcasing, like Letterman jackets, clothing. It was just yak at stuff inside some other stuff. So maybe I'll post it on Instagram, so people can know what we're talking about. But that was just the vibe of me being a sock hop, you know, girl that works there, which I find funny, too, because I always approach. She it'd this about you like I know like as models, you guys, do some funny sheets. Sometimes afterwards, you probably like, man, I can't believe I actually did that you know what I mean? Like just some of the stuff you have to wear and things like that. One thing I've always appreciated about you, like you can poke fun at yourself. You like yeah. I did something a little goofy there. Maybe maybe we wouldn't probably do that, again, a decade later. But yeah, it was funny. Then it worked whatever you know, but you've always been able to like you know you can find humor in yourself. You know. Well, and that's the thing it's just, you know, people are going to say things about you, and people are going to talk about you. But this is what I learned. Maybe it's just moved to treatment Paletti or eight miles. I'm an coming up. It's just make fun of yourself. I if you mix of yourself and take away all the things that they have to make fun of you. You know, Eminem like yeah. White, my mom's a druggie. I live in a trailer park like tell me something. I don't know about myself like, okay, cool. Yeah. I did this now. Tell me something, I don't know. You know, I snort when I laugh a little bit. You know what I know? You really think it's funny when you get the snort outta t stone, like all right. You got a good joke. They're like you have a tell you have a legit tell like you can chuckle. And it's like it's not that fun if you get a snort additive, boom. It is like yeah. That was a good joke that was. And then, you know, everything was my grandma. You know, I've been I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with her, and her last few days and everything. And, and when my family was around I guess, I get the snow. Art from grandmother. So I'm you know, I'm I'm really lucky happy about that. My sister, does it as well. So when you get my sister nights together, it's just really funny, and it's that's just the way it is. But you're right. You gotta make fun of yourself because if you can't, you know, like then everybody has everything to make fun of you. And you say that'd be and said, I know you were up at obviously, we're supposed to fish rally report ARA, Idaho. This is actually one of the few rallies in this country. I haven't been to yet this came onto the national calendar used to be a regional came on in the national calendar after I left the sport rally not left it, but just not working fulltime anymore. So I haven't actually been to this one. This one was an interesting one. You can talk about the rally itself tiff, because I honestly, I can't compare to anything because I haven't been there, but David Higgins, no Subaru's on the podium. I mean, this is like the equivalent of hell freezing over. Yeah. Pretty much usually it's, you know, Subaru one two, and then whomever it is can get in there with three or, you know, when we were in Portland. It was Travis Pastrana without their there Higgins and stuff. And so this year. Yeah, it it was crazy. So Idaho's a little bit different obviously, we fly into Boise, and then we had about four minutes. East down twenty one and we go to like Idaho city, and we'd go to place, which is these areas are just crazy. You know, I've never been to Alaska but a lot of the people that were around was like this kind of, like, Alaska. So there's a lot of chicanes long twisty berry technical type of road. But a lot of these roads 'cause, you know, with a stage rally, you'll have maybe six ages one day six stages, the next day, you'll either do the same sage reverse them. So there's a lot of you that happens. But I'm one of them like Spanish sports very winding. Very Turney the crazy thing about the terrain really is how. Silty. So I know obviously, you know about Baja and, you know, how crazy silted down there, that's exactly what was happening in Idaho. It was getting very slick, silky duper super dusty. And I was making the jokes. I don't know what's worse mudcake dirt from Crandon, or silty, dirt dust from Idaho, 'cause it was it stuck in the air and usually they let maybe like the first three to five cars go with a two minute war window in between to let the dust settle. Well, since the dust was so big, and so massive, they put actually three minutes and two minutes in between, and that just shows you like how Duff the guy and I'm looking at some of them, and obviously, you know, Jim like sitting in the woods, there's nothing going on except the sound of the birds the win and then you can hear all the, you know, car come by and you're just hearing these cars and the distance and you just see dust, come up in between the pine trees and all that. And it was just really, really cool. And I liked it, it was very. Much so drivers type of stage rally driver co driver. 'cause there's a lot of, you know, threes and fours there. And then a lot of twos and three. So it was cool. I've always heard it's more of a technical rally, you know, it's not the wide open crazy high speeds, a lot of back and forth. I think that was one of the things I know you know, we had a UTV third on the podium, you know, call Markham like talk about a crazy effort. But, you know, on a flat out racist, some of the stages at Oregon, where it's wide open hundred mile an hour, you know, UTV's can't hang. But when it's nice tight twisty technical stuff like I know Steph Verde had a good run as well. The man UTV's were solid up there and I know and we could talk here all day long with T stone. But we got to take a short commercial break and cut this thing short. Because when we come back, we have ESPN Espy nominee, and my good friend, Steve Torrance, right here on the line live. You don't wanna miss it, Steve. Oh, never disappoints, right here on the down and dirty radio show. Powered by. Polaris razor all about.

You know, like this kid, I said, like we did in the interview I've met him. I think when he's I thirteen you know, and this kid is like next level, good. You wanna talk about a prodigy you wanna talk about one of the kids, you know, is the future of motor sport to be able to -ccomplish what he's done at this age. I mean, look at that in the history of IndyCar. He is the youngest ever winner in the youngest ever pulse it? I mean, that's Saint something you look at the talent that has come through IndyCar. I mean decade after decade after decade of talent through IndyCar, and he is the youngest ever pulse it and he's the youngest to ever win men. You wanna talk about a statement, you know, some of the all time greats. He's already clipped, you know, their feats, which are astonishing in themselves, like to me. That's crazy. You want to be a fan. You wanna hit yourself on, on the, on the horse that, you know, this going to take us into the next decades and the future of IndyCar Colton hurt at this kid right now real deal. And not only that, but, you know, Harding Steinbrenner racing. I mean, we haven't even talked about George Steinbrenner who is twenty two the youngest owner in IndyCar history. And he's already got a team that is winning and taking polls like this is crazy. The youngest driver youngest owner in history, this team if you're the rest of the IndyCar paddock like for real, you guys are taking notice. Everybody's nervous like if they're doing this in year, one, what's things going to look like in your two three four five of this team. Like to me, it's just mind boggling how good they are both as a team and Colton is a driver this early on. Crazy. I'm excited Indy-Car is firing on also Anders like you know this form older sport man there. They are just absolutely blowing it out of the stratosphere right now. So, yeah. This is our number one.

"The down at Hertie radio show. Powered by Palermo razor like to welcome Christly, only my media, director to the show. Chris manpower rankings this was. I would say that this was a weekend of, of dominance, that would be that would be the easiest easiest way. I think to some this one up. Yeah, absolutely. Jim. I mean there have been all sorts of just impressive performances over the past week guys who've just put an absolute hurting on the field. You know, NHRA IndyCar pro motocross just everywhere the, the cream of the crop really shown over the past weekend, racing to wills and four. So I guess we got a lot to talk about inquiry gonna spend a little more more time on our picks and reasons why I know there's a couple of guys that I really wanna dive into and kind of talk about some of the storylines in their specific motor sports. So I think we are going to dive into things. I guarantee you, my number five is not like your number five there is no possible way. Just listeners know, Chris, and I do not collaborate on these. We have no idea what each other's picks are going to be first time we hear him as actually when you guys hear them. So Chris starting things out power rankings for this past week who is number five on your list. Well, Jim, you know it's interesting because thirty seconds before we started this segment, I was crossing out names and adding two new ones to my list, fun and says the same way dude, it's like it's like this fluid concept and up until we say, who they are, like, I have literally been in the mid segment in swap guys from fourth to third or third to fourth, like mine's, always a fluid concept. It's not locked it until I say. You know, the funniest thing is because we do previews of so many other racing series and we don't necessarily focus on NASCAR preview content. When I do my power rankings, the first time I almost always forget NASCAR. And then I go back in and realize. Oh, right. That's kind of an important one isn't. So as a matter of fact, I had to I had to put one of the stockcar people, and that's funny because that was my background before coming into offroad, but yeah, I think our number fives, or certainly, going to be different. There is one type of racing that I'm very heavy on this weekend. So my number five is actually Bob task the third going back to back in NHRA, funny car with second victory in a row believe it's the first time he's ever done that. I mean he had won a Wally since twenty twelve until getting the Bristol and then to go into Norwalk and go back to back. I mean, you know that task teams really firing also there's right now. And. It's, you know, it super impressive to me to see anytime that anybody's able to string victories along and we'll get to that a little bit later in the power rankings as well with some other drivers. But I've got Bob. Cousy the third down at number five, you know, task was on my honorable mention list this week. And I said, as guys like that. My just so people know my honorable mention list is always guys, like you know, the there's guys in my head, you know, the, the could be on there. But for some reason, they just didn't quite make the cut because I usually start out with probably, I'm probably like you six seven drivers. And then I've got a narrow down to five so task, it was definitely on my honorable mention list, I guess, that doesn't help Bob in this case, but he, he wasn't my thought process. He just didn't quite hack it on my list. My number five I am going to go to a are a in Idaho. And I'm actually not picking the winner David Higgins, did not win, which was a surprise. I'm not picking the winner, Jeff seahorn who it was his very first day are a victory. I guess. I guess, to me, I would have rather him, be David heads up. But I don't know no seahorn is not my pick. David Higgins is not my pick. I'm going with third place finisher. Carl Markham, because Carl Markham took third place overall in a national rally in a U, T V. That is right. He had a UTV. He finished third overall in a national rally, we're talking spanked some Subaru's. Some open wheel cars in a UTV. I have long said Steph, Verde was there to Steph, was right in the mix Markham clip. Steph by. I don't know. It was less than a minute. I believe Steph, you know, he he was in there. But ultimately didn't get the victory. But I've long said, UTV's somebody at some point is gonna show up to a rally in and I don't know how you know, I don't know how hot rod it out. Markham's UTV is, but someone's going to build a proper rally you TV, and I think they're going to come in and they're going to overall a national rally, and I mean, heads up against David Higgins, type overall, national rally, and I know the rally purist, I've been on the boards, and everything else that I've got fought wars, and they're going to be tuning in, and they're going to hate me. And I'm gonna get heat on the internet. And I don't care. They need to get out of their whole and realize, how damn fast UTV's are because they want to ignore them. They don't want them in rally they're gonna take over, they're going to they're going to ruin the sport. Well, truth is the damn things faster than a Subaru. Why not have them? I don't care what it looks like what it is. If it's fast, it's fast. So Carl Markham your third on my list. My man. You've finished third overall international rally at Idaho. And I hope that. All the rally peers flat. Eat their words, swallow them and choke on them because you are my man at number three Carl Markham are third place and your number five on my list. So there you go. Chris, what do they call Mark on on the list? I am with you, Jim. I love you TV's for rally. I love UTV's just in general. It's funny is two years ago. I mean before I was working with you. And before we had, you know, the possibility of Polaris project GRC that, unfortunately, never really got off the ground. You know, they just weren't on my radar at all. I'd be that said, obviously, I was, you know, pretty focused just on the rally cross side of things. And I wasn't really thinking about a lot of other, you know, other forms of motor sport, other types of vehicles, anything like that. But you know very quickly came to fall in love with you, TV's and, you know, I've been a big proponent as big as I can be if you TV's coming to rally, they're just fun is held the drive. They're fun is hell the wash. You know, I've talked with Steph I've talked with res mill and they, they both came out and did rally Colorado last year which I was at and, you know, they're, they're just some impressive pieces of kit. There's some. Really, awesome machinery. And, you know, the fact of the matter is we're gonna see a lot more UT's on the podium. And, you know, I am with you on the rally Purus. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna go too far, but it is been incredibly frustrating. Can you need to deal with a lot of things, and I will say that part of the reason why there hasn't been so much rally coverage from me this year because of the community, which I hope will at some point taken item itself realize how harmful it's been to it self with just how backwards some of its views have been, you know, I I'm I'm with you, having having a UTD driver on the podium absolutely worthy of the list. I mean I just admittedly. I didn't really follow this week because it's been it's been really frustrating to see a lot of things that have gone down over the past year in the rally community. You know, some people that have gotten pushed out some things that have happened that I think, sort of set things back, and it's really unfortunate. But, you know, I it's awesome. See at UTD driver in the top three and I'm glad that you were able to get the shout. Yeah. Well, you know, and it's interesting too, because they don't even want to classify them in the rally. It's like you've got all the standings where it's like open. I look at the I looked, and they ran the exact same stages, everything else exact stages, but it's like okay, so you've got all the cars here national injuries or whatever, you know, and it's classified open light open to will drive all this, and then down in their own separate category. You've got UTV's and so you've got to actually take their time and then going apply. It against the national ones, you know, to see where they would fall in. So it's like even even a are a is treating them like the red headed stepchild to me, it's just it's madness. You know. And I know we've had this conversation off road, and they've been embraced wholeheartedly at this point. And I mean we're seeing top TV sneak into the top ten overall, I think are not top ten but right. I mean, Wayne Matlock, had a great run a while back. But you know it's one of those where in motorsports you. Gapped or you die. You have to evolve and I think that's been the biggest problem with stage rally. They have failed to adapt. They failed to evolve in now. It's really stunning. Their growth. And I hope this opens the eyes of some of them. Like, hey, we need to embrace, these UTV's. I'd love to see a dozen of them at some of these national rallies. You know, I would build one right now. But I just don't I, I don't want to go and invest that kind of money in a car that, you know, next week, they rally Pierce, we don't want them anymore. You know, and then you're sitting there with a relic with cobwebs, you know, I don't know. It's just vent over, but that was my number five Carl Markham, my man. Congratulations on the podium well-deserved, I know I got tagged on Instagram by somebody, and I was like, no, I am not going to forget about you guys, but got him a number five on my listless, rolling the number four, Chris. Do you have a number four? All right, Jim. So for number four, I am sticking with drag racing. I am going with Andrew Hines. I mean what can you say about the kind of season that he's having so far? It's not quite as maybe prolific, as a certain other driver, who may or may not be on the show this week. But, you know, find out seven victories to the season in pro stock motorcycle. I know you're not running all twenty four events. But, you know, that's, that's pretty darn impressive. That's you know, pretty high level of dominance pretty high success rate and I know that he had a pretty disappointing season last year. So see somebody come back out like that. You know, pick up Wally after Wally after Wally to start the year really set himself up put himself in a good place for once we get to the countdown later in the year. I'm really impressed with what Andrew Hines has been doing the pro stock motorcycle. So he's my number four. All right. And before we get to my number four, we're gonna take a short commercial. Break. Are you looking for a place to push yourself behind the wheel and see how your driving skills, stack up derp this rally school is that place located on three hundred and fifteen acres of pristine automotive playground at the foot of the cascade mountains in Snoqualmie, Washington?

Era moderating on race line radio that how does it feel to be back here at I'm s good good to be back in. Yeah. To feel the again, the the magic of the place on the facilities when you come in the morning, and you see the the size of everything again. And yeah. Doing the medical checks in the morning, and but depending the the running on the afternoon, if if good, unfortunately, the the way that was not stable enough to to follow the the times that we had intense of practice and. Yeah. At the end it was not enough laps Broglie and not enough time on on the car to get the proper feeling, but yeah, he's I guess the same one how important is it to get this lap time. Even if you figured out things that you might need to work want work on when we get back for practice during the five hundred. Well, this is important in any truck time that you have you you may discover issues on the car, you may discover things that you can improve driver and. You know, there are always Causton learning, especially for us is is brand new car. And yeah, we need to check many things because all the waiting around because of the weather, and then you couldn't really get out because of the issue with the car, I mean your other series and Formula one or even sports cars, the show goes on whether it rains or not. Restrained input everyone I guess for us over the year. We lost a little bit of time at the beginning. But these was more or less suspected because said he was but I'm new chassis and on new car everything feet in the last week. So we we spec to to Ron slowly step by step with doing short runs at the beginning. And he's what we did. So. Yeah. If we could probably have the these laps at midday. Maybe you discovered these issues, and then you have to work in the car and be ready for the afternoon because the weather delays seventeen new stellar up five thirty PM and that is not to to get back on track on time. Still sound encouraged even though you're still working through an awful lot. You still sound genuinely happy back here. Even though there's a lot of work at. Yeah. I'm happy. I'm happy to be back here yet today, as you know, we were. Slow because the the whether some of the seasons that people made intensive running time that so not enough nothing labs Fernanda. This is a full McLaren effort this year versus year Andretti partnership. The last time what's been maybe a bigger challenge. The biggest difference this time around. Well, basically, I think is is is a bigger challenge. No, no doubt. I think we have to do everything by ourselves. And, you know, not not only in terms of setup wise on on the technical side these on the operational side Olsen, the strategy and the diet management and the comfort side of driver position. You know, molding, the stealing will grip, you know, these basic things that they were. Ready? You know with Andretti, and you say a lot of time. So yeah, basically, it's a bigger challenge, but could be bigger rewards while and I think some of the.

"In Spain. You know, as opposed to doing it, you know in North America, either with a mayor with Canadian superbike, why did you decide to make the trek over to Spain? And. Do it that way. What what was the reason for doing that my family, and I moved over to Spain to race just because the competition level is just that much higher than it is in North America. And he was just trying to find the best possible way to develop my skills and we closer to podium position. And you know, an and the other thing too is that, you know, moving to Spain and getting used to another language that's all part of the of the maturation as well. So not only did you have to go over to a another country. That speaks another language if you've got to get in to the culture, and that's all part of the of the growing process to isn't it? Oh, yeah. For sure is. But it's been quite easy since we've been here been about nine months or ten months that we've lived in Spain. And so I've caught on pretty well soon. Order coffee easily. So you're you're blowing Espanyol pretty good. Then or at least enough, you know. Up here of top tens in the season opener at horizon, that's not a bad way to start. In both races. There's a little bit of bumping in the first you turn that just got bumped in. You know, you kinda know happens from there if push wide and then work your way up through the grid. But yeah, it was DC result for kind of how the preseason wins. But I'm happy. And I'm hoping to improve the good thing about a guess, you know, you're there to learn, you know, you got bumped, and that's unfortunate. But you were able to battle your way back up through traffic to pull off a pair of top tens, and that's not an easy thing to do for. So for you to be able to do that. I thought was was quite a good thing to see you agree with that. Yeah. Yeah. It was definitely a little bit tougher of a race.

He's great guy and in the team works. Really, well, and we got a good bond and so over the past couple of seasons we've been able to really work well together. Yeah. And that's the that's all you can all you can hope for is a team. But it's behind you one hundred percent of the they do seem to have you pointed in the right direction. Jonathan may be kind of a tough question to answer. But what do you think the biggest thing you've learned in this series racing over there that you didn't know before? Keep your elbows up. And for somebody who does know what exactly does that mean? You've is that me just be aggressive be combative? Being aggressive and don't be afraid to rub little bit with some of other guys going through through the turns down the straight. Yeah. Yeah. If they give it give it to you. Make sure you give it back. It's almost like a almost like a hockey comparison. In a lotta ways Jonathan VS you about your ambitions. What do you eventually want to do with this?

"Yeah. Obviously that's going to be a declining curve. I definitely feel more comfortable than I feel like I know what doing off more than ruin she courses is the wind change things. L Colton from their perspective. I know momentum is sort of vague thing. But I know that you know, in ovals, I I would think the car's probably a bigger factor in there. You're you're running against teams that have more money and more cars like SE, your Android your Penske. But does winning lift the team up in any sort of way and make you recalibrate your expectations and not that you're gonna run for the championship? But you that you could be more contender. Yeah. It definitely gives the teams to monitor out because you know, it was a tough off in just car ready for coda into testing regarded the Saint Pete. And from you know, who says that he's confidence and further. Really means the expectations. I think we if we can finish top ten everywhere coat. That'd be pretty pretty damn solid for refer camping saw the George Steinbrenner the fourth one of your other co owners of the car there was asked at coda after your win. You know, what would be next, and he said, obviously becoming I guess the youngest winner at the Indianapolis five hundred having you know, not much over experience and having not run any before you get there. There's no way really to know until you get there in may how things are going to fold. But how do you feel looking toward the biggest race of the year for IndyCar? All I didn't say is that we get a lot of time that's going to help a bunch. Honestly can't they are targeted. They will be could be real quick. Who else kind of acid that? I really no clue. I've driven the Indy lights for them. I think it's super easy flat. Comet it's concrete's there. So every different than the IndyCar. So there's obviously a lot of new loan.

"Move with racial side of things are all it's more career management contracts, sponsorship and stuff like that. They help sport. Stuff. But I still had a lot of wizard a point which he was more involved in the racing side. And if so when did he? Musician. Definitely when I was younger probably up to fill around over thirteen and I moved to England, obviously, I'm I moved over there on my own. But before she moved very from our fucking t my okay, kinda let you go. I primarily cover NASCAR. So I sort of see the way chase Elliott his dad, Bill interact in you Bill is very much behind the scenes and sort of off the radar but hotel, it does talk about sometimes he gets tips from Bill because he's raised at those same tracks, and I would presume dad Bryan Herta has a similar relationship. So do you guys ever talk racing? I mean, does he ever offer any tips or do you ever ask him about maybe an upcoming race or track you're going to or? Yeah. I didn't think I ask them right now from federal part probably ask from now for about. What suffers getting kick and anything else, that's probably the biggest topic of what we talk about pricing. And then just general should shout about different things racing. Stuff like that you've been pretty much since the test at Austin in the preseason Colton. You've been spoken of really highly. I was I covered Saint Pete. And I was in an interview with Roger Penske in which he named check to you a few times is being extremely fast in. I've heard Ryan hunter Ray and others coming out of that preseason tests singing your praises. I was wondering do you block that out or have you heard any of it? And if you do hear it like, how do you handle it? What's your reaction to hearing people talk about you that way? It's pretty cool. I think it's brought out it just give out. Like, I said I thought what I looked up to or even guy Rochester, same cool. That's cool. They hurt it as well. I saw you comments from one of your teams co-owners Mike carting after Austin. He said that you know, this wasn't something that you guys expected in race. Number two. I'm and I covered the Toronto race last year when I was talking to Brian Barnhart. And I remember he was talking about kind of on a slog, it'd been just. Adding up to speed much, less run competitively. So I guess the question now calling would be like how far do you feel like the team can go after this win given that it's still relatively new and I would presume it's sort of a deficit to the the bigger teams promote. Promote beat by competitive Pino every everywhere refund so far though, it's only two places Saint Pete. We threw up into third and fall finding and into the fastest. The first they kind of knock, you know. But any into the five fifty. We got an eight place finish for after being Trump of all with the team at the on these ly- the wing at a a vote that pretty special. But you know, I think you know, we begin to have really paid for favors of just so different tall. The other tracks thing that you have a definitive, so it's not filthy this this weekend will be tough trucks. Like this fray Hieaux those those are going to be placed for I think I'll just driving wife. I'm gonna struggle. Just because I haven't had a lot of tracks finding it difficult place. Or are you more comfortable on street and road courses than ovals at this point in your career perfect? Yeah. I done a lot more. But those are both think this going to Europe it was really good for for my road pro-trade king leading drive the car in up since but I lost out on a lot of a lot of other guys talk. Obviously than filling in with running oval, but forty years and stuff. So yeah. Obviously that's going to be a declining curve. I definitely feel more comfortable than I feel like I know what doing off more than.

"Good balance grid to grace par you need to make those those weekends really count. I'm curious just to get your opinion on this as someone who primarily covers NASCAR. And I was at Saint Pete in planning to be a Long Beach. I was at Indy last year. I'm kind of getting a sense for like how the stewards approach officiating in IndyCar versus some other series. I've covered and it's interesting to me like how they review the on-track actions. And they seem to be into deterring people from making moves before calamity strikes. How do you view how the stewards of officiate races IndyCar you like that? They're proactive or could they be more proactive? How do you view how they evaluated done a good job? I mean, the best outcome is when raised control does not have to intervene. Right. You want drivers to be able to race. I remember. There was a certain time in IndyCar when there was too much. Intervention going on from race control. They were getting into the race as well. Too much and drivers within almost terribly to do certain things or to put their car in a certain spot. I think it's it's going in the right direction. That words there's less than invention and there's less of a presence from race control. But they do have to set their limits, and they have to you know, you have to know that they're gonna they're gonna enforce them. It's an empty threat from control that, hey, we're going to penalize you do such and such and they don't do it. You get away with it. Well, then the system's broken. So I think I didn't do a good job on it for the most part with NBC having Indianapolis. I mean, we're very enthused having that broadcast and close by just getting your thoughts on indie. I guess it's probably difficult because when you guys don't visit Noval ahead of going there until may is there any real wait for you to get a barometer on how you feel like you're gonna run until you actually get on track there. No, no. I runs the first few hundred Indianapolis when you finally get the car on track and you do your baseline run. That is the most stressful time the whole year for us because we know on that I run it goes, really. Well, it comes easy. This speed comes easy. It's going to be a good one because we have a fast race car. And then I've been there and other times where oh, no, you know, for the same amount of draft or a mile an hour and a half off or two miles an hour off. It's going to be a long month. And it's going to be stressful on so there's there's so many components that go for these cars together. And and when you get him up so two hundred thirty miles an hour, the the drag, you know, characteristics of mechanical drag aerodynamic, there's so much gear and tamper a race car like that. So every year, we do everything we can team out reparation wise, but they are all different race partners. Dow down parts of going to them. So you never know what you're going to get until that I run which is the most stressful year. That's crazy. So it doesn't matter how much simulation you can do or how precise it can be until you're in the real world. Oh, that's that's the worst. Yeah. I don't sleep the night before. Sounds great. Speaking of that. I was looking at your Indy. Five hundred record since the win. I know the finishes haven't been there since the twenty fourteen victory. But it seems like you've led some laps as it just sort of been circumstantial that you haven't gotten the finishes that you've wanted since two thousand fourteen. Yeah, I mean sixteen we definitely should have when we maybe ask anybody in the paddock we at the fast racecar out there, the most laughs, and then you know, got into an incident where he may just out on pit lane. But it's unfortunate sixteen really really hurt seventeen. We were also fast last year eighteen we weren't that great. You know, just couldn't get the balance right and in the race kind of fifth place car, and I think that's where we.

"Remember, how once upon a time in the midst of time there was the XFL and they changed perceiving role. So that if you just down any part of your body inbounds it was a catch. And the idea was it's going to generate all sorts of wild action in that case it also meant there is less skill. But it did mean there's a lot of wild action. There wasn't there before this reminded me a little bit of that. Because for this race in the any car looked at the code allowed. And their decision was. Yeah, you can exceed track limits for position, no problem. All those on offs. Yeah. Those became alternate routes through the track. Like you had like suddenly you went from the racing line to like you have three different racing lines around this track. It was nuts and it made for exciting race. And like even if that does sound a little bit cheesy. How they're doing it. These guys racing pretty closely. There were a lot of like side by side through multiple corners duels happening between the between these drivers. And they've got a really exciting lineup of drivers. There is this dude. I was telling you about Danny Patrizio award a Mexican Irish driver who just looked us very much a. Overtaking machine for good portion that race. He lost a lot of positions do bad pitstop. But prior to that he was driving way of you know, like out of his out of his range. He was he was really generating a lot of action on the track. And then. We had sort of a door of -ly like young rookie driver. Colton herta. Son of Bryan Herta ended up winning the race a bit fluky willpower, basically read that led that race from the start and had had put the car on the pole. He went in for a pit, stop and his driveshaft broke. Starting. It was like like three minutes of watching the Penske team try to figure out how to resurrect this car before the real life, something just irretrievably wrong at the back end of it. But so Colton Herta who run pretty exciting in in good race. He ended up winning and he's just like eighteen years old and he's driving for like a twenty one year old team owner, George Steinbrenner's fourth. Yes. So basically, these drivers style. Oh, yeah..
