"Worried about this round. All right, let me look and see when Chase Elliott has ever said anything positive. He will be anything positive. Listen, I followed it for this too many times where, you know, Martin or chase Elliott, oh, we're going to not be good today. Your car is terrible when they just, you know, we should have won by 6 seconds when I'm about to chase Elliott, he's the favorite to win this championship. I don't see how he's not. I mean, I don't need a favorite winner championship. He's got the most points. You look at the race wins that he's got. You look at the stage wins. He's the favor. And so in my brain, I got it moving on. You know, I got in. So I'm trying to I'm looking and saying, how do I feel with three spots? Not four. I got chase Elliott in golden city. So watching them this year. Okay, so if we just go back a year and you watch everything that Kyle Larson did, he could do no wrong. He could do no wrong. I mean, he spun at the rover. Got on a different sequence and comes back and then he's just in the right place. But you have the electrical. You know what I'm saying? So that's your year, man. And we've all had places. Our times like that. But what I've not seen from the 9 that concerns me when I look at it is those flashes of brilliance. They've just been solid. But you haven't seen that from anybody. But what I do like about the 9 is Alan. I like Alan. Alan Allen will put him in a position. To score points. Allen will put him in a position to win races. No matter what chase does in that car. Alan Gustafson will put him in a place and has that experience and has that knowledge and understands how to work the race and change his strategy when it is. So that is a huge one. For me, yes, that is a huge bonus for me for that man. And that's why I have the 9 going. Now you've taken me to a whole other place. Like crew chief experience. Yeah, yes. All right, hundred percent. You start looking at that and you're like, okay, Ryan Blaney is crew chief. Very limited experience. William byers crew chief. Very limited experience. Ross Chastain. When I say the experience on the championship championship, Sunday, when you walk in that racetrack. Nervous. Christopher bail just moved to the top. Right, Christopher Bell Adams. Yes. Two championships. He moves up. Yes, he does. I love the show. You got Alan Gupta. You've got Paul wolf. That's right. Got a chance, you know? Gay bar doesn't, but gay parts been through this battle many, many times and knows what he's doing. And so gay parts solid. So with Larsen out, does that help or hurt the two handed drivers in? Helps. I think it helps. Yeah, I think it helped because it's the focus on that. On these two, I think the same thing with track house, it helps Chastain because now we focus on one car and it helps the 14 car. Now we focus on chase Briscoe. I think it narrows that focus. The more we get to the end. The teams themselves there are the focus. I mean, simply for me, and this is no, would you rather race against the 5 or the 14? Yeah. And I'm not being disrespectful, but only the 5 cars defending champion. Yeah, that's right. They've got a race against the 14 and the 5. Now the 14 might go into championship. Yeah. And it would be really cool to see. It would be really cool to see tensions. But that 5 team has been so strong all year long. I think they've been a stronger team. So even as my teammate, I won't eliminate them. That way, I don't have to deal with it. So let me ask you this. For years, the drivers and teams would have told you you have to win in this round to make it to the championship four. In this day and age where there are so many talented good teams now outside of the playoffs, does that still hold true in your opinion? Not for me. You do not have to win and the round of 8 to make it to the championship four. I think you've got to be solid in this round. I mean, really solid. And I mean, all day long. All day long. Points. Point. I think you got to be like, you know, we used to come out here and they used to run these things and before you had a bunch of this stuff and they'd say, well, if you can just run it in the top 5 or 6 in all three of these races, you'll be good. No, you need to run in the top four or 5 in every stage of all these races. And then you'll be good. You know what I mean? Then you'll be good. Okay. Well, listen, I think that so clearly you don't have to win because there's three races and four going. So you don't have to win. It clearly makes that path away much easier. I think that we'll get at least two that win. And that means you got an incredible point race. Yeah. All right, so now to the caller's point earlier how important points are. Well, I'd make the argument that points are more important today than they've ever been. Like, look at how you get to the next round of the playoffs. The only race where he points don't no longer matter is Phoenix. So people get to the next round by points. And what was the stat we had in almost half of the race, almost half of the cutoff races that the guy that transfers is by three points or less or less, yes. I mean, three points or less and almost half. So points matter more than they ever matter. Right. And when I say that, yes, points always determine the position now points determine they now take more people with a chance to win a championship than moving along. And point, I mean, they're just pay such a role in this.

"First round, the second round, I'm amazed at second time it is. How tight it is. It's great. It's like one and that's why, and then not only that, but in round one, and in round two, chase was like, oh, let's make it interesting. I'll just give you all my bonus points back. My first in this first race. You know what I mean? So that has made it. That's made it extremely important. They made this point for the beginning of the playoffs, or all these playoff points that didn't exist this year in the playoffs, guys. It's true X was not in it. And that's crazy. And Kyle Busch out early and then just it's made it so tight this year. It's made insane. I think what's fun is Chastain, Christopher Bell, chase Briscoe William Byron. I think that's what makes it fun. Is that you've got and I'm not putting, I'm not putting Blaney in there because he's an old soul. But you got all these young guys. That are coming to do battle against chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Denny Hamlin. I just, I just think it's going to be fun to see you use going after the great. It is a lot of fun. It is that true, it is that true, like when you, when you look at the sport, it's like when you came along, there was a shift. There was a shift that went. All of a sudden you and Bobby and ward and you guys, you were competing with these guys, and it was like, there was that mixture. And when you get in those years so that's a mixture of the old and of the game. It's fun. Those are the cool years. Those are the cool years. So look cool when you're young and you start being mixed up. That's not cool. That's not cool. Let's look at these tracks real quick. Vegas, Miami Martinsville, if you had to pick a driver or two, Kyle, who would you say this round favors? Okay, so we were talking about this before. For me, I looked at Logano and a Hamilton, our Hamlin. Why I said Hamilton. I look at these two guys because it's just right in their Wheelhouse. You know, we've watched Joey win at Vegas with a car that should have been a 5th place car. We've seen Danny drive from tenth or 11th to win the race at Martinsville. I mean, these are races that just fit their driving styles and the way they approach racing. So for me, those were the two guys that stood out. Do you have how about you? Well, I've had Christopher Bell from day one. I just feel like that he's in that position. In his career, I feel like they've got good equipment. And I think the Toyota's have gotten better. I think they're past their bad tracks. I think now it's good. They got their good track of them. So I think Christopher Bell, I feel really good about him. I agree with you on Denny Hamlin. And Denny Hamlin and you guys in the post race said that I think he just worked perfect that it couldn't build three better racetracks. Yes. And I agree with, I agree with him on that. I think they do lay out perfectly for him. You mentioned Logano, they just hadn't had speed. Well, I know, but they were so good at the Miami test. I know they did some stuff to be a little quick, but they're good. I think they'll be very good this round. So I just so torn on Blaney. I'm so like there's times I see them. It's so fast and there's other times I see them and they're like. And I think this would be their weekend

"The car. So I think when you look at it, but in chase Briscoe's defense, if you look at the data, he sent that thing. He drove into that corner. And they did. Farther than he had ever been in his life. Parker had that date. And listen, when you say it didn't affect the outcome from the championship side, they had already said, you guys had already said on TV. Ty goes to Briscoe. He is tied right now. He is right. He is tied right now with Kyle Larson. They are both at the cut where I'm zero zero. They are both tied, but the tie goes to Briscoe. All Briscoe really had to do was ride it out at that point in time. He had moved on. So it didn't affect that. So listen, I like that NASCAR has made a call. When you start trying to change the game, or manipulate the game, or manipulate the outcome of not only a single race, but what could be ultimately the champion. A champion is a big deal. That's a big deal. Let me ask a more direct question. Is this manipulating the playoffs? So listen, I'm going to go back to what was once our 100% rule. But I thought we were done with the so that's a good point. That's the start of this, right? So that is a good question. When you are when you give up, your opportunity to have the best finish that you can in an effort to help someone else on your teammate on your team, then that's where it starts to get to the point where, okay, that's when NASCAR's got to say, okay, you are manipulating the race in an effort to help your teammate. That's really what it boils down to. So people say, well, you let somebody in on a restart at Talladega where you let somebody in and restart at Martinsville. Okay, a lot of times you do that because you think that's in your best interest. There's times, you know, a guy will catch you that's just way faster than you. You pull over and let him go because it's in you're probably in your best interest to let him go. We tend his fans and I'm a fan of the sport and say, well, we didn't do this and we didn't do that on these situations, but they're not all the same. They're not always. So what's important for this sport to define? And I think NASCAR has tried to define it, is that they do not want teammates helping their teammates at the detriment of the one that's trying to help. If you're trying to help your teammate and pushing them to the front of the line, that kind of stuff, that's going to be fine. But when you start giving up spots to help a teammate, so he can get into the next round of the playoffs or win a race or something like that. Let me ask you this question. That's when that's perfect. That would sort of refute what DJ was saying yesterday. Or add to what DJ was saying yesterday because when you let someone in line at a superhuman race, you're really helping yourself too. You're not hurting yourself. You're trying to help yourself. Yeah, you're playing chess. You're playing chess, but with two or three laps to go and you say, if I say if Kyle and our teammates, and he needs my spot to get in the next round of playoffs. And I just pull over and let him go. And I hurt my finish to get him into the playoffs. Yes, that's manipulating the game. And yeah, I mean, at that point. So here's what's got a lot of notes on it. No, no, so here's what I just drew up. I just do up the finishing order of the race. Yeah, okay? So Briscoe run 9th. He did. Okay, so let me ask you this question. Yes, sir. Would we even be having this discussion? If it was the end of stage one, and this happens so that Briscoe could get two points. We would not. You see what I'm saying? And that goes back to the interesting what I'm saying? I mean, it's complicated. It's complicated. It's incredibly complicated. The same thing could have happened. And it's still a two point swing. It's just at a different time in the race. But you get so focused on that last lap. You get so focused on that last corner. You get so focused on who's moving on and stuff, that it makes it a bigger decision than where it says. Listen, these are the cases, and these are the instance where I'll go back. I think the William Barron 25.5 was way too much. Because it was an elimination that was not a penalty. That became an elimination three race series for me. I still think they should have given him a 5 point plan or an 8 point plan or something. Just let's cut it down. Just not 25 points. But when you look at where it's at, it's hard to figure out what is the right call and what's the wrong call. Because there's so many different angles you can look at, especially this particular one. Someone has to police a sport. Yes, someone has to. That's right. NASCAR says, if you give up positions, if you sacrifice your race to help your teammate, we're going to consider that manipulation, then they have to enforce that. I've heard, well, chase Elliott kept Kevin Harvick when random. Bristol. Yes, he a 100% did, but he didn't sacrifice his race and the good. He was already lapsed down. I fans will argue two years ago in a cut race, Eric Jones did. He was told on the radio, do not pass Denny Hamlin. Yeah. Then in my opinion, this is where this is where this is one of the things he gets so difficult. Because we always want to, we always want to set precedence, right? Well, okay, we set a president. We're going to do something like we did. That means we can never change it. Yeah. We can never go back and say, okay, we needed to do better there. We need to improve there. Now, if in the same short period of time, NASCAR calls it differently, they need to be called under the bus board. But NASCAR has got to communicate clearly to the teams. To the drivers, what the expectation level is. What are we looking for? What is it that is not going to be acceptable, forget what happened a year ago, this is where we are today. And we got to be not reactionary. We got to be proactive in having those conversations. Yeah. And listen, what are you saying if you give up positions to help your teammate? I mean, I've had you guys know I'm a Logano fan. And I've had a million tweets. What about Joey parking at Bristol? And allowing cinder to move forward. Do you know what I mean? So what's your point? What you see on the side are a lot more. But in the first round of this year, it was rigged. Yeah, I got that. But I'm just saying. But I'm just saying people, my point. These are the things that fans keep bringing back, which makes the issue hard for NASCAR. Because I'm charming in with what you're saying, the same thing. Because you say press, you say all this stuff, you know, it's black and white then. And there's not a lot of black and white here. Let's go to the followings real quick at 8 four four NASCAR NBC Josh has a thought on this. Josh, how you doing, man? What's your question? Well, I'm doing pretty good, guys. And Kyle petty, first of all, the comments that he made last week about me having a bow tie.

"I think we got a flat tire, blow up. I think we got a flat tire, check up, check up. You fill it out, get left. Little tire rub, little tire up, go there, still there. Fill it out, good, fall back. You're okay, a little higher up, keep coming. Is that NASCAR used to make this decision that was Mike shiflet, and then at the end, his spotter for Cole Custer that you heard on the radio. So I want to hear what you guys think, Jeff. Let's start with you. How do you unpack all this? And digest what has been handed down by NASCAR and what went on there. You know, I wish we could focus on racing. It seems like we've done everything, but focus on race and lately. You know, listen, this is to me, I have normally I'm very opinionated, come to one, but I'm torn on this one. I do think that when NASCAR is doing is working to make sure the integrity of the sport is always there. No matter what, we have to have integrity to support. The great question about that is what's acceptable when it comes to teammates. That's the part where it gets murky because, you know, listen, I'm a guy that let Mark Martin get a lap back at Michigan and he went on to win the race and after the race I bragged about it. I said, hey, you caught a bad break, a little bit of bad luck, cut a tire if we can change his luck. That's where we were going to do. And I was proud about it. Was that okay? F one has dealt with this problem. Teammate orders team orders. If one is dealt with this problem, our world changed at Richmond, the year that Michael waldron racing, trying to help one of those teams, did some stuff, made some calls. And the world changed and how NASCAR was going to look at what is too much and helping teammates. And you know, I don't know. I wish we didn't have to deal with this. I feel bad for Cole Custer. Yeah, because if you Cole Custer and you're a young driver trying to make your way in the sport and somebody tells you to do something, you don't have an option. No, you do it. You do it. You don't do it. Really have a knowledge because I will say earlier in that run, he had said they had a vibration. Yeah. But I don't know how Mike would have known he had a flat top here. No. So that part doesn't make sense to me. That's the part that gets kind of strange. But Kyle, your take on this. I don't know. I mean, I honestly don't. So I grew up at a time when there were no teammates, which it was really cut and dry. You didn't help anybody. You didn't help anybody. No one helped you. The teammate phenomenon came along with Jack and went with Rick and but it's really a different set of it's in different animal now than it's ever been. You talk about letting Mark have a lap back. Not a problem. I don't let my dad in line. You know what I mean? You let somebody, that's not a that's a subtle, that's a subtle thing. We're talking about a dynamic shift in the sport when you let somebody into the playoffs. That could be the next champion. You just knocked somebody out, or you just let somebody in. It's not the defending champ out. Yeah, but it changes, it changes the championship structure. It doesn't just change a single game. Or a single event. And so it's crazy. They obviously, they have evidence. You know what I mean? When you start listening to that, I don't know how saw on the pit box with the infield, they feel sweets and all that stuff behind him and not be and know that he had a flat tire and know that he had a tire rub. You know what? It's back to at least it wasn't code, my arm itches. You know what I mean? It

"He's actually doing some of the things that the agent wanted for his people, but he's not what McLaughlin calls a progressive. He's a traditionalist, which is a bad bad thing, the traditionalists. Because he wants to wipe out these traditions. And then all of a sudden something comes along that gives hope to some of the lakotas, and that's the ghost dance religion. This ghost dance religion, the idea was if you continue to dance this dance in a certain way and to where the ghost dance shirts or robes that there's sometimes called that eventually the white man would go away, the buffalo return and the life that they enjoyed would return and also some of the people that the lives that had been lost. Some of these people would come back as well. But it would be a world without the white man. In fact, even when some version of the ghost dance said a great chasm would develop in the earth and the white men would all be on one side and the lakotas would be on another. It gave them hope and especially because they were also starving the traditionalists were sometimes denied the same amount of rations that the quote progressives were given. I mean, if you did what the Indian agent said, you know, you were friends. But if you bucked the policies of the Indian agent, you weren't Friends. You were traditionalist. And so this ghost dance religion gave them hope. And of returning to a life that they all sorely missed, this life of freedom, because they were not free on the reservation. They had to do essentially what they were told. Now, city of all doesn't partake of the ghost dance. He doesn't dance the dance. But as a holy man, he helps them prepare for the dance. He's not going to discourage it. He's going to allow his followers again because it gives them hope. It also gives him a little bit of status. You know, he's able to maintain this status as a leader by supporting the dancers and the ghost dance. But McLaughlin is not going to allow this continue the Indian agent is a very controlling. He's also a very petty, he's also jealous of the influences sitting bull has. And there's worries that sitting bull and again rumors that he's going to leave standing rock and indeed he was planning to leave. He was going to go to pine ridge because apparently that's where the messiah was going to appear.

"And another problem with treaties was that often what the interpreters told the Lakota chiefs and head men was in the treaty ended up being a misunderstanding red cloud when he got to Washington after signing the Fort William treaty of 1868 when the terms were explained to him again, he became enraged. He said, that's not what I was told. You know, that's the problem with these working with different languages and a contract that you're being told a certain thing, but it's getting jarva in the telling. And so sitting bull and crazy horse, in fact, crazy or it's called the fort lawyer me treaty false papers. They learn very quickly that if you sign anything, it's not good. And so they refuse to sign trees. In fact, crazy and I'm getting a little ahead of myself here, but crazy horses was so afraid and against signing things that even when they asked them at the red cloud agency after he had surrendered, the sign for food. I mean, his people's like, I mean, what are we giving up by signing, you know, they were just terrified of putting their call up touching the pin. So they were very wary, any agreements with the white man because they saw that essentially in their eyes the white man could not be trusted and as both sitting bull and red cloud and other leaders recognized it just seemed like you sign one treaty and then here comes the next one, the white man is always wanting more. They said. So, but it wasn't, you know, and then the other thing that they were dealing with was just this encroachment, you know, white men hunting buffalo that belonged to the Indians. And establishing towns on land that had been agreed to by treaty to American Indians. And you mentioned the gold rush into the black hills as well as the gold rush to the Montana, gold fields, it brought people onto Lakota lands. And it just wasn't a matter of people crossing those lands whether it was the Bozeman cutoff or the Missouri River, but they're shooting game. Killing the sustenance, the life way of these people. And sitting bull really would have loved to have maintained that earlier balance I talked about where you have some white traders, the white traders weren't trying to take their land. They were just trying to exchange for their natural resources. And all along, you know, even during the most violent times between the whites and the lakotas, sitting bull said, can we just have some traders? We don't want people coming in onto our land, establishing forts, military posts, soldiers, settlers, gold miners. They were trying to maintain their homeland. And I should also mention that it wasn't just maintaining a homeline against the whites, of course they also were battling the crows and other neighboring nations for those same resources who also saw these resources shrinking at the same time. So it was a cascade of problems that were falling down while they were trying to live their traditional and

"So it's a handful. I think it makes the drivers work a little bit harder and that's something really cool about our sport right now. At the same time, I think we can see it. We can say at the short track races need a little help to get a little better, but I think those are some little small areas that we can make changes in to make that racing better. For sure. Now you want an Xfinity series race this year. Does that help boost your confidence for any serious you run then? For sure. I mean, whenever you can go and win races, you know, it kind of proves to yourself that you can still do it, you know? So now you haven't forgot how to drive. So it was nice because that was my home track and Fontana getting how to win there and for Bobby dot org also in production alliance group. It was all personal lines for business right from Southern California. So it was a, it was a really special win for sure. But once you get that win, you always want to be able to do it again and get that feeling again. So we're pretty hungry to get back in brick to land the cut car. It looked like you had a chance to visit the masters golf tournament, right? Yeah, I got to actually go down there for a practice around and watch them guys, you know, go out there and play a little bit on Monday. So it was pretty cool. I've gotten into a little bit of golf, you know, here recently kind of over COVID when we weren't racing. And it's definitely pretty cool. I mean, it's all it's cracked up to be for sure going down there in Augusta. I mean, it's immaculate in this, it's one of the coolest sporting events they can go to. Tell me about we're on with Coca-Cola Custer and tell me about the feeding America program that you're involved with. Yeah, it's pretty awesome, honestly. I mean, it's been something we've worked with la la waffles, one of our sponsors, the last couple of years. And we've been able to volunteer at food banks the last couple of years about once a month and pack bags for local schools and stuff like that. So it's been really cool to kind of get involved and honestly just see something that directly impacts your community. You know, I'm guessing if we get so wrapped up in our own lives at times and get busy that you forget to people who really need some help. So I think it's been a really cool thing and it's been awesome just to work with well waffles on it. For sure, for sure. And it's going to a good cause. You're a four driver. So have you had a chance to drive that Ford Mustang Mach-E or even maybe the F one 50 lightning, those electric cars? I have driven the Mach-E and it is, it is impressive. I'm not going to lie. Really? Like anybody, I think we're a little bit skeptical, you know, just growing up around not many electric cars and everything, but that's been it throws you back in the seat. I mean, when you go from a dead stop and try to accelerate, it throws you back harder to keep than anything I've ever driven. So it was, it was a really impressive, honestly. And just the quality of the car and everything. So it's pretty impressive what Ford and everybody's doing. So I'm hoping we can see more of those on the road in the future. Yeah, absolutely. Now it was a pace car for one of the races this year. Did you notice any difference back in the field? Oh, man. I mean, I wish I could tell you which rate that was, I can't remember a time ahead of which one was the habit. It looked good at the front of the field. I do remember that. Yeah, I was hoping you'd remember because I forgot to no big deal. No big deal. Hey, a couple of the races coming up on the schedule, of course, after Darlington is Kansas, kind of a normal track, I guess you could call it. Yeah, I mean, Kansas is one of those tracks where, you know, it's a mile and a half, but the pavement is starting to get older. I think that it's becoming one of the more favorite tracks of the drivers go to just because the pavement's older now, you're able to move around the racetrack, make passes, run up by the wall. So I think it's going to be interesting race just because this new mixture and car, how's it going to run next to the wall, you know? I think we have to get up there at some point. So it's a matter of how this car is going to take a hit going up there and how we're going to be able to manage that. And then after that, kind of a break in the points paying action, the all star weekend from Texas. You got to be excited about that. Yeah, I mean, the all star race is always exciting. I mean, I've been lucky enough to race in a couple of them. And it's a cool race just beyond go out there and race for a $1 million, not a care in the world. You know, you're just going for the money. So it's a huge race for all the teams just being able to kind of have that chance and hopefully we can get it ourselves into it this year again. All right, his name is Cole Custer. Look for him on the racetrack this weekend at Darlington. I totally appreciate the time and thanks so much for being on the final lap once again. Awesome.

"Stage win and two seconds. And I'm gonna continue on with another Toyota driver, the number 19 Martin Truex Junior, he has a 10.1 average finish in 19 races here. He's got four top 5 and ten top ten. With the laps led at 693 in the game that's only 37 laps more than the 5 car. In twice the races run. But Truex has two wins at the lady in black, one coming just last spring, where he had a one 50 driver rating. It doesn't get any better than that. The stage point picture in the 8 races we've had stages run, trix has collected points in 12 of 16 stages and check this. 6 stage wins. And one second. So he definitely likes to run up front. So I would be considering Truex for my lineup this weekend. All right, that's all I got for you for picks for this week. What do you guys think of the new format, sorry I got a little Keselowski on you this week? But we can do that now. Don't have to stick to the 48 minute mark. And you might hear a couple of recording floss too that I'm not going to edit out either. So anyway, I have a good race over there at Darlington, the lady in black. Thanks once again, everybody for hanging out and listening to the fantasy segment of the show. I am rowdy dragon. We will talk to you next week. All right, there you have rowdy dragon. You're fantasy NASCAR guru on the program for Darlington Raceway this weekend. He is the man with the plan and he always has some really good advice for us. I actually did okay this past week. Yeah, me too. I was like 47. I mean, that's pretty good. According to rowdy, I am catching you guys, even though I have one less race under my belt, that's incredible. So I wondering here, I see we've got at 21st in our rankings this past week's race was race and Jason. Is that Jason huff tailing? Because that's kind of his name. Could be. I mean, maybe? Is that good or bad? I mean, he's been suspended, so. Well, he could still play this. He could. He's not suspended from our game, but does he want to come on and tell his side of the story? What happened? Jason, there you go. This is indeed you. Let us know. That'd be cool. Yeah, that would be cool. Hey, thanks so much to rowdy dragon, of course, for giving us his wisdom each and every week. And of course, Cole Custer, who was on the program, giving us his wisdom getting you set up for Darlington this weekend. Go back and listen to that again. Yes, it's good times. Very, very good times. We forgot to say this at the top of the show, but if you like what we are doing here each and every week, please be sure to subscribe and give us a good rating wherever you get your podcasts. That would make us happy. And if you don't like what we're doing, just stop listening and don't mention anything in any of the ratings or stuff. Just leave a beat, man. Only good vibes around here. We didn't do anything to you. Seriously. Checkered flag is flying on this show. This has been the final lap weekly catches next week right here when we will recap the racing at Darlington and preview. Kansas and all the stories in between tobi you and I will chat next week. Is that not right? No, I'm sure it's right. I just don't like it..

"At the same time, I think we can see it. We can say at the short track races need a little help to get a little better, but I think those are some little small areas that we can make changes in to make that ratio better. For sure. Now you want an Xfinity series race this year. Is that help boost your confidence for any serious you run then? For sure. I mean, whenever you can go and win races, you know, kind of prove to yourself that you can still do it, you know? So now you haven't forgot how to drive. So it was nice because that was my home track and Fontana getting that win there and for Bobby dot or also in production alliance group. It was all personal lines for this right from Southern California. So it was a, it was a really special win for sure. But once you get that win, you always want to be able to do it again and get that feeling again. So we're pretty hungry to get back in Britain to cut car. It looked like you had a chance to visit the masters golf tournament, right? Yeah, I got to actually go down there for a practice around and watch some guys go out there and play a little bit on Monday. So it was pretty cool. I've gotten into a little bit of golf here recently kind of over COVID when we weren't racing. And it's definitely pretty cool. I mean, it's all it's cracked up to be for sure going down there in Augusta. I mean, it's immaculate in this, it's one of the coolest sporting events they can go to. Tell me about we're on with Coca-Cola Custer and tell me about the feeding America program that you're involved with. Yeah, it's pretty awesome, honestly. I mean, it's been fun. We've worked with wala waffles, one of our sponsors, the last couple of years. And we've been able to volunteer at food banks the last couple of years about once a month and pack bags for local schools and stuff like that. So it's been really cool to kind of get involved in honestly just see something that directly impacts your community. You know I'm missing if we get so wrapped up in our own lives at times and get busy that you forget to people who really need some help. So I think it's been a really cool thing and it's been awesome just to work with well waffles aren't. For sure for sure and it's going to a good cause. You're a four driver. So have you had a chance to drive that Ford Mustang Mach-E or even maybe the F one 50 lightning, those electric cars? I have driven the Mach-E and it is, it is impressive. I'm not going to lie. Really? I mean, like anybody, I think we're a little bit skeptical, you know, just growing up around not many electric cars and everything, but that's.

"The final app with us today is Cole Custer. Welcome back to the program as always. Yeah, thanks for having me on. All right, so this weekend, you're heading into a Darlington the track too tough to tame. The lady in black, all that stuff, but this year you've got the next gen car. Is it gonna be more durable? Oh man, I mean, I think that's a big question, Mark, right? I mean, I think we've seen a time deal with front impact and rear end tax that it's been pretty durable of race car. You know, it can take some pretty heavy hits, but I think you look at some of the rear suspension. I think we've seen some guys getting into the wall and it breaks some of the suspension in the rear of the car. So it's just a matter of we're going to have those problems or not and I think they can definitely come up at a place like that. Now in Darlington comes up on the schedule, everybody's looking at the paint schemes. What do you guys got going on for this weekend? So we're actually running throwback the hof DNC racing and Jason wesler when he actually ran a Cup race in the zero car. So he's pretty cool with the car that I grew up watching as a kid. And I was always a huge fan of Jason. So being able to run a car that is truly one of your heroes is pretty awesome. Yeah, I mean, he was awesome. I've talked to him many times back in the day and it's really cool that you can honor him in that way. Yeah, I mean, I was always a big fan of Jason. I got to meet him a few times when I was a little kid. So I was always a big fan of his and he kind of came from a similar background. I would say. So it's definitely cool to kind of be able to run his car. All right, so on NASCAR seems to be in a good spot. I look at the crowds, a Talladega, the audience is up. There's an enthusiasm around the sport. Are you noticing the same thing when you're down in the garage and looking up at those fans? I think so for sure. I mean, I think coming out of COVID, it's been great just having people back at the racetrack and I think everybody wants to get out.

"Then you got someone I haven't seen in the top ten in a while, Ricky Stenhouse junior. Yeah, and you know, so you expect him to run well on the Bristol dirt. That's kind of where you expected it because he's got dirt background. In a second last year and it was like, wow, you'd be late at stinker there. And I was like, well, that might be it for Ricky Stenhouse junior, no chance for him. And here he comes at Dover and finished a second, what the heck? Yeah, yeah. That was a much needed second place finish for that team as well. JTG Doherty racing. Yeah, sitting back there. I think they were like 28th or maybe even outside the top 30 in points going into this thing. Just had an abysmal year going, but that vaults Ricky Stenhouse junior back inside the top 30. He's 27th in points and looking for more now at this point. Really, really good run for them and maybe just maybe they've found something again. Totally. Let's head to victory lane now. His Hendrick motor sports teammates all have wins so far this season. And the points later Chase Elliott dominated the closing laps to notch his first win of 2022 here is CE. You know, I want to do good every week, regardless of what's going on around me, but you know, just proud of our team for sticking with it. You know, I feel like we've had. We've had a lot of pace at different times throughout the year. We just hadn't put an entire race together, really, until today, I feel like just been fast at one point or fast another or just, you know, not quite putting it all together all in one, you know, three and a half, four hour time frame, and it was just nice to do that today. Just proud of our team, proud of Allen, and really just our entire group for continuing to bring good attitudes to the racetrack and coming in with the right mindset every week, regardless of what happened the week before and to me that says a lot about their character and the kind of group that we have. So as always, just really proud of them and excited to get a win. Still fairly early in the season. So that's always a good thing. Good opportunity to build some more wins and some more bonus points before we get to the playoffs and a lot of racing leftover for sure. You got some stats for us. Yeah, 14th career win for chase Elliott. First, oval track win Carrie in 46 starts. Wow. Unreal. Yeah. This seems crazy. 9th different winner this year in 11 races as we mentioned earlier. First time they one organization has won with four different drivers in the first 11 races of the season. Hendrick almost did that last year. I think it took him a race 14 or so. But yeah, so this is some pretty big domination here early on in the year for Hendrick motor sports, even though we haven't really talked about it being a dominating performance for them. Well, not only four different drivers, but one of their drivers has two wins. So yeah, William Byron has two, it's a good point. We're 11 races in and you're talking about track house performing great and some of these other names. Then you look at it and hinder motor sports has 5 wins in the first 11 races. Yeah. So we're not talking about them, but they're leading the points. They have got the most wins. All sorts of stuff going on. And it just doesn't feel like they've been dominating, but here they are. You look at the numbers and the numbers don't lie. Motor sports is getting it done. Totally. So you got your stage winners being a Denny Hamlin who had a wheel fall off penalties came and went and Ryan Blaney, who finished three laps down, I think it was, but do you still want a stage? He was having a terrible day, okay? So I don't know what the deal was because he started kind of towards the front. At The Rain delay, it was still pretty good. Race started on Monday and he went straight to the back and I was like, man, this is a bad day for Penske, because they had the Logano instant. They had Cedric that was out of the race early. And it was like, man, Ryan Blaney is only hoping it ain't looking very good, guys. So it was looking pretty bad. He decided to roll the dice, not pit at the end of the stage to get up there and have the chance at the stage when he somehow held on over Kyle Busch. I have no clue how he did it. And then after that, the rest of the day was just garbage, and like you said, I finished three laps down off the pace and just terrible. So luckily they did get that stage when to help elevate things and he still second in points overall. Right. But man, that was a bad day, a bad weekend for Penske, but Blaney did kind of salvage things a little bit with that stage one. Well, back to the whole Hendrick dominance thing, you look at the point standings, chase Elliott leads by 50 over Ryan Blaney. That's like a race. That is like a race. And the big knock on before this weekend was no win. So I was like, yeah, he's got points lead, but no win. Well, now he's got way to end points lead. So that's 15 playoff points if he ends up being regular season champion plus the 5 points for the whim, plus some stage win points in there. Chase Elliott's looking pretty strong all of a sudden. Yeah, and kind of quietly because he was building up that points lead before the win. Yeah, no doubt. And again, he's only got two top 5 finishes. One being the win this weekend, so it's like, man, he's not really getting these top finishes, but 8 top tens and he's just always right there at about 11th place if he's not inside the top ten. So he's been super consistent. Now he's shown that he can win. At an oval at that, we know he could win at road courses. So man, you know, things are starting to look pretty dangerous there for chase Elliott. Yeah, we've got Cole Custer coming up in a couple of minutes. We'll talk about the wheels falling off for Denny and the 16 car, but how about Kyle Larson saved? That was very Jimmy Johnson esque. It was. I mean, it wasn't as nice because he did pop the wall a little bit. And he did blow the tire and he did destroy the hood a little bit. But overall, that's about as close as it gets to save a car at Dover as you can get because usually you do any kind of a spin at Dover. You're into the outside wall and then you're into the inside wall and then somebody else is into you and then you go back into an outside wall and then back into an inside wall..

"Can just kind of go off on tangents or talk about random stuff, so did you see, by the way, speaking of random things to talk about, LW right, they found him. Wow. Yeah, LW, the driver who ran one Cup race back in 1980 to how he made the field. I will never understand it Talladega. Right. Made the race, got parked after 13 laps for being too slow because he wasn't an actual race car driver. And then kind of just vanished off the face of the earth for the next 40 years. He has been on earth. He's seen vault podcast with Rick Houston over there. They have found LW right whose name is actually Larry Wright. I don't know how he wasn't found all these years. Considering he literally used his first initial, but he has been found and is starting to tell his story to the scene vault podcast. There's a pretty cool stuff and that just intrigues me because I've always been intrigued by the story of random things like that even like kale yarbrough how I used a fake name when he first started racing because he was under the legal age to be able to drive in NASCAR. He used a fake name to get started and just these little stories like that always always make me kind of chuckle and I like to hear more about these kind of things. So LW right has been found guys. Leave it to a podcast to find that. That's great. Yeah, and so of course, these are long time Rick Houston and Steve wade, their longtime journalists in the sport anyway. With Winston Cup scene and all that stuff they ran for so many years, but yeah, now they're in the podcast game and it looks like they're doing a pretty good job over there. Sweet, probably should have told you this stuff at the top, but we're already midway through. Today on the show, we've got Cole Custer, and he's going to get you all set up for Darlington throwback weekend. And he describes the feeling of driving that new Ford Mustang Mach-E. Those are electric. Oh, you know what? Cole Custer reminds me that cold custard sounds really delicious. I may have to DoorDash something here in a minute. Now you're gonna DoorDash in the middle of the show in the middle of the show, I will have ice cream being delivered to my front door. I'm excited. We can make that happen now that we don't have to do 48 minutes, exactly. Yeah, exactly. So look for that. Also, rowdy dragon has your fantasy NASCAR picks for Darlington as well as a recap of the previous week. And he has taken the ball and run with the whole, you know, I can go as long as I want now. He's almost taken over the show. Mister longevity, all of a sudden. He cracked the mic and it just kept going and going and going, that's just fine. That's cool. So that's awesome. That's good times. I love hearing more from rowdy and it'll be cool to hear how long he goes this week. Right. The show could be 6 hours at some point if he keeps going on that trajectory. Do you think that that's where it ends up? It could be because he was like under four minutes under three minutes, and now it's, I think this one's 7. Wow, yeah, that's a pretty big that's like almost double. Right, so if it keeps going that way, we got ourselves some rowdy dragon for a while. It's the rowdy dragon show. Yes, we also have news of the week from your website. There are Toby Christie dot com, but that's later on. Yeah, we'll have to get into that here in a little bit, but hey, you know what? We had a really good race. Things were pretty good for what we've been seeing at this racetrack Dover motor speedway in recent years. Yeah, let's talk about this thing. Yes, miles the monster on hand and Chris busher tamed the monster first and foremost, getting his first career poll. That's pretty good. I mean, I wasn't really surprised I was surprised he got a poll and it was his first not just Cup Series poll Gary first poll of any kind and NASCAR national series history and he's an Xfinity series champion so wow. Really interesting and he was like 20 something in practice. I was like, there's no way and then he made it into the second round and I was like, okay, that's kind of weird, whatever, you know, get a nice top ten starting spot. Goes out puts out just blindingly fast lap at the very beginning around two and I was like, there's no way that holds up, right? And then about halfway through. Well, maybe it does. And then sure enough, he held on, that was pretty impressive. Wow. So.

It's surprising as that is, I know. Wow, you're all in with this. So it's gotten to the point now where I won't even go too fast food. Like, seriously, I will order fast food on DoorDash now. And the reason why, check this out, so we went the other day. To go get milkshakes at a fast food establishment, right? Mmm um. I forgot my wallet. We got all the way there. Kids wanting his milkshake. Everybody's wanting their milkshake. I get their wallet. Crap. So I pull out and start heading back and of course there's a crash right there. So we're stuck in this traffic jam for about 30 or 40 minutes. I only get home. Get my wallet, the kid really wants a milkshake, so you get all the way back there. You get the milkshakes, you get back hour and a half later, we finally have our milkshakes. Wow. After this whole thing started. And I said, you know what? Never again.

Does that make sense? Yeah. Like, I feel like I've been here before, but it also feels like I'm somewhere I shouldn't be. But it also feels right. So if you're didn't listen last week, I mean, first of all, what's wrong with you?

How the Cartels Are Targeting People in the U.S.
"From W M R it's a radio clip and there's some Congress people at the end I'll probably cut them off because I'm not too interested in them But I want you to hear how the cartels are targeting people in the United States with fentanyl with fentanyl lace pills with fake pills Check this out It was really the influx of the pills laced with methamphetamine targeting children To look exactly like an Adderall that I thought was just an insidious move on behalf of these drug cartels to target young Americans The DEA testified at a rare Senate field hearing in New Hampshire that elicit fentanyl is devastating the state and now the agency is seeing methamphetamine at an alarming rate coming from Mexico and China The ruthlessness of these cartels combined with the callous greed is destroying families and communities resulting in an increase of violence and crime here in the granite state and throughout our entire country Consensus Monday from elected and law enforcement officials was that the old model of incarceration and confiscation is not the way out of this modern drug war A critical component now is reducing demand and congresswoman Annie Custer says that starts with treatment access The Medicaid inmate exclusion is a draconian policy that hurts those with substance use disorder mental illness and trauma whose cycle in and out of our justice system The race for funding to keep up with the agility of drug cartels not bound by rules or budget is an ongoing struggle The issue a priority for senator Hassan We just have to keep at this with everything we've got And you all are on the front lines so are the men and women who you lead and we are very very grateful to all of you All right I'm not grateful to you lady Listen you can do more to stop it And people vote her out But now I want to talk about the bigger the crux of the issue here Drugs aren't the only

Afghanistan has six airplanes at Maza Sharif airport, six airplanes with American citizens on them as I speak also with these interpreters And the Taliban is holding them hostage for demands. Texas representative Michael McCaul no comment so far from the White House or the State Department, because claim does seem to be backed up by reports. Um, but, uh, here's more from Fox's Benjamin Hall Congressman Michael McCaul over the weekend, saying that the Taliban is holding these American citizens and allies hostage for demands. By blocking the six planes from leaving Missouri Sharif airport in northern Afghanistan, He says they're sitting on board unable to leave. They're going to demand More and more whether it be cash or legitimacy as the government of Afghanistan On Thursday, both the White House and the State Department denied that the Biden administration was preventing planes from leaving. But as commercial planes start landing again in Kabul, Americans engaged in the rescue efforts claimed the State Department is now the only thing preventing those flights from leaving Afghanistan. The Taliban claims they're working through Qatar to reopen the airport to commercial travel. Qatar says the airport as well as several others throughout Afghanistan are open to allow aid to travel through There is a difference of opinion.

Agency homing in on social media companies' data collection
"U. S Federal Trade Commission has issued orders to Amazon, YouTube and Facebook and six other social media companies to hand over information. But how they collect and use information from users, the country's top privacy regular, saying the firms use of consumer data is quote shrouded in secrecy. The sweeping demand comes after the agency sued Facebook for alleged violations of antitrust laws just last week. Discuss We're joined by Mark Mahoney, managing director at RBC Capital Markets. So Mark obviously the pressure from the U. S government on Big Tech in general has been ratcheting up. How much does this latest salvo from the U. S government changed the equation. Just write it just like your expression. Emily. It just cracks. It's up the pressure on these these companies, and it's become a clearly a bipartisan issue. You notice that, in the congressional hearings in the middle of the summer is what I called up opening of a congressional bipartisan can of whup ass on on Big Tak. It's Republicans and Democrats. So yeah, these these companies have planned to become very large, very powerful, and there are legitimate questions. So it's the weather. They become too large, too powerful both in terms of their acquisitions and then their internal practices. Privacy issues are a little bit separate. But you know the scrutiny is a super high and at that leased it very much limited ability of these companies to do any large scale acquisitions. This statement from the FTC today, the decisions that prominent online platforms make regarding consumer and customer data remains shrouded in secrecy. Critical questions about business models, algorithms data collection and use have gone on answered. Policymakers and the public are in the dark about what social media and video streaming services due to capture and sell user's data and attention. It is alarming that we still know so little. About companies that know so much about us. You know, as somebody who has covered these companies for so many years, you know, I'm sure this is probably the height of scrutiny that you have seen on these companies from the U. S government. How big a risk should investors take this into their calculations when they're thinking about whether to invest in these companies that already high Valuations. Well, let's see, I you know, we regulatory issues aren't necessarily new Google is paid. I think about $10 billion now and find space book is a those air European finds Facebook has paid about 5 to 6 billion to us to the FTC for violating a consent decree or acknowledging that may have violated a consent decree so investors were used to find Investors. They're used to this kind of scrutiny. So I don't think it changes the investment thesis on this name. You'd have to really have a required break up or required changing business practices. But Emily, you've tracked decision industry for a long time. A lot of these models. It's kind of a trade off for consumers. You you know, if you want a free service, you have to give up some of your privacy. You have to give information and by the way, in many ways, I think it actually makes the service a lot better. You get targeted ads rather than junk mail on. I think most consumers prefer the targeted ads, how, In fact, they get the information to target the ads. I mean, that's kind of a secret sauce for a lot of these businesses, and they probably not tell regulators or anybody that for competitive reasons, but they may be forced to now because of regulators, and so anyway, that's that's the new issue, but I don't think it changes the investment thesis on this name for good for for investors. What about the risk in particular of Facebook being broken up? Given that the FTC certainly it's not required, but the FCC has suggested that could be a remedy spinning off instagram spinning off. What's up? Well, it could be one of the smoking guns Emily that came out of this congressional hearings this summer and, by the way, was already brought up in a couple of really great books that have been published in the last year or two about Facebook and Instagram quickly. Several fires book is that there's no question that Facebook bought Instagram, in part to take on what they perceived as a potential future competitors. And so the those air those are the things that antitrust laws they're sort of meant to stop or to at least address why there was The dress. The first time the FTC looked at that acquisition is a little bit of a mystery. But anyway that Z it does. It does raise the issue that these will be forced breakup. I think break up of what's happens a little harder to see what the rationale for that would be. It's not clearly in the same industry as Facebook. That was kind of the more about our thought. Colonel acquisition, but the person's gonna be there. I think it's unlikely they'll be required spin offs, but it is possible. Now you just put out a note on uber and you are pretty bullish on how they come out of the pandemic. Why? Tuck. I'm sorry, Emily. Let's see the uber. This remains our topic in the group. We have snow dust this multi year rise in the interest of ride sharing what I found. Most interesting. This from this report in the survey was the finding that consumers are finding new use cases for ride sharing. Dark Custer shot. He talked about this on the last earnings call that New Yorkers you specifically pointing to. We're starting to use ridesharing during the middle of the date or non peak commute times. Our surveys show that people Start to use ride sharing to run errands. If that use case continues, post Cove it and then you have your general use cases rising for social events. First for airport runs. What it means is that the use cases for ridesharing for uber for lift all then they're gonna be greater post cold Whenever postponed. It is. I thought that was an unusually bullish take away, So we continue to like Cooper. It's our topic in large cap. Now interesting. Uber's Obviously one of the companies that has struggled in the midst of the pandemic. Stitch fix is another company that your look looking at that struggled early on as well made big job cuts but seems to be taking off like a rocket ship. What do you seeing in terms of the path ahead there? So that's gonna be a covert recovery. Play on that retail is a category Emily just accelerate like a rocket ship throughout Cove it except for fashion apparel because we didn't want to buy clothes to go out because we weren't going out. But now we starting to think about going out. There's been a lot of pent up dollars. Uh, I think people will be looking to refresh their wardrobes. And in the meantime, I think Stitch fix Katrina like that, that company, I think they've done a lot of product improvements. And to me, that's what innovation product groups really tried that you do these for these companies over time, and I think investors kind of made miss Mr Underappreciated. Some of the changes that they've made the side is more personalized. They figured out new features that kind of game ified to service a little bit on. I think that you come out of covert. You'll see a really nice sharp recovery in both new users and in revenue it stitch fix. This has been one of our topics and small cap. We've had a dramatic surge in the shares, so it's become a pretty small by force now, but fundamentally, it's a much stronger acid. It will be coming out of orbit and it was coming in. That's why investors are excited. Now even covering take a long time Mark, and I'm sure you follow the Airbnb and Gord Ash I pose last week, doubling their valuations. Even Brian Chesky. The CEO, seemed stunned when I told him live on air, where the shares were about to open at As we head into 2021. Are you concerned about froth in the market? We're already looking at a couple of companies affirm and road blocks that are postponing their I pose till next year. As as we they try to get a sense of what is happening in this market. Well, yeah, This is unusual What we're seeing, and I don't have been a formal opinion, either Airbnb and or door dash. I wanna look at names this year, which have risen a lot because their estimates have gone up. So I look at a good classic case like a Facebook or an Amazon. It's not so much the re rating. We haven't seen these multiples. Five the moon. What we've seen this. The numbers have gone up Amazons. Everybody's estimates on the street for Amazon of Ghana materially since the beginning of the year because their revenue growth accelerated. There were big winners off of advertising on the cloud computing business, even though all three of their agents of growth have actually benefited from Cove it so I think there's less risk in a good, solid name like that, and my guess is that you'll see kind of a recovery back or returned by investors back to kind of the standard Bears of tech. Especially those that benefited but also came up with new investment initiatives. During the course of the year again, M sounds the poster child here. They're increasing their distribution capacity by 50%. This year, they really leaned in the cove it and I think what's gonna come out of that for them accelerated market share gains, So I think investors can still stick with that name and continued output for perform for them despite already out performing this year.

Yeah, we host a lot of history here and still continue to provide a meeting space to Veterans groups and a number of other non-profits working on behalf of veterans causes here in San Francisco. So

"Hey Terry here with your flash briefing for Monday. Hope you're off to a good start for your week as I promised a last week I've been diving into a little bit of the jobs that are available with Amazon particularly in Canada and there are a number of jobs particularly in Vancouver and Toronto that are currently available.

A development. Manager for Lexi Guard so you don't know guard is one of the features that is available in united. States. But it's not here in Canada. So what does that mean? Well, it does mean that Amazon obviously is trying to bring that to Canada but if they're looking to hire someone to work on it, it probably means that it's not quite ready yet for prime time here in Canada. So that's a little bit on the Lexi Guard. Some of the other jobs that I'm seeing posted include and these are all in Canada. Areas of applied scientists software development engineers, a quality assurance engineers, solutions, architects applied scientists. Language engineers a senior V voice user interface designer for Lexi shopping. So That's interesting. They WanNa Canadian to working on that lots and lots of development engineers I'm seeing. and.

But in the job description, the job description, it says lexi or. Is situated at the center of all Lexi customer experiences whether they are traditional custer, customer initiated speech interactions, or the growing set of lexi initiated proactive scenarios such as routines and notifications very interesting anyway.
