"Going to be some tender back in there. For sure. And then you take in the bristle and give it a ramped up more yet. So, yeah, I totally agree. I mean, these guys are feeling desperation too. I mean, I can see it high. There's nervous drivers. There's drivers that their cars right now are not for formal like they should be. And it's not going to fix a fixed self next week and they know it and the nervous about it. They're just hoping they can write the ship and get back on track and one of the guys I'm talking about when it comes to that is Kevin Harvick. Harvey has been really, really good at hearing Arizona. All the short tracks. On the hit, he went to march to Virginia last year and had a travel race and missed the chase. Could not believe that happened mister playoffs, but he made it this year, but he is not looking real good, though. So we'll see what happens. All right, it's been truly an honor to have you on Rusty Wallace. NASCAR Hall of Famer, I truly appreciate the time. And we will be listening to you on MRN in the coming weeks and as you cover the playoffs. Thank you so much. Hi, guys. Thanks very much. Been great being on your show. All right, thank you for Rusty Wallace and Ryan Blaney joining us yet again as an encore interview. They didn't really have to do much to have that happen. But we thank them anyway. Thank them for their time previously. Right. Yet again. So checkered flag, flying on this show. This has been the final lap weekly catch us next week right here. When we will do more off season stuff, I'm sure the list of stories will continue to flow and we will bring them to you. Toby, you and I will chat next week. Yeah. That's a wrap. Another final lap weekley is in the books. The final lap weekly is hosted by Kerry Murphy along with Toby Christie. Proudly.

"Some of the other racetrack to give him a knuckle sandwich, you know. But nowadays, there's just a lot of lot of art unit happens. But these drivers are just the cars handle different, the engineers, there's a lot of engineering about that. There's a big time penalties on have a scuffles at the racetrack. So it's all different. I would say nothing bad about it. It's just way different than older days. We mentioned the sports book aspect driving fans to the sport. But there's a new ownership blood coming into NASCAR. You got Michael Jordan and Pitbull and even call it racing, Ganassi exiting. That's got to put more eyes on the sport as well. Especially when you have some big stars like Michael Jordan, you guys guys like this ball, those two, that you mentioned. I mean, I don't know what the impact spend yet, but it's got to be on a positive way, I would think, you know, and that these guys are really acting like they love the sport. It's not that they just want to come in and try it, have some fun with it. They're putting a lot of skin in the game. I mean, Michael Jordan, he's decided to go to two car teams out Kurt Busch to drive the other car. He takes a lot of money and a lot of sponsorships to do that. And then you got Pitbull, you know, who him and his ownership guys decided to completely buy it out shift and ask you what she was a huge purchase. So they're introverted along all. Definitely and it's good to see that kind of stuff. You've had a lot of awesome paint schemes throughout your career. Obviously making the black and gold very famous. So what are a couple of the paint schemes that stand out in your mind that just really look good and you felt proud stepping into? Well, the black and yellow car that I had been nicknamed midnight, that car won a ton of races. That paint scheme was on many different cars and it still wanted.

"App weekly. My name is Kerry Murphy a longtime NASCAR media member in syndicated radio host of all things the final app. Our co host for the show is Tobey Christie, founder and editor in chief at Toby Christie dot com. We've been talking between segments here and there's a crazy amount of news going on. What's going on? I mean, it's just nuts. Seriously, there's been no off season. I even joke with a few PR people. Via text messages this week just kind of checked around some of their stats and whatever's happening. We're all just joking. There's just been no off season. Lots of coffee has been consumed. I'm coffee addicted now, by the way. I use said, which was a thing that never happened, and I swore it would never happen. The only cup of coffee I ever had all year long was when we'd go to the NASCAR awards banquet I'd have coffee during the morning brunch lunch thing. I'd always go sure. Give me a cup of coffee. Well, now I'm addicted. I can't stop drinking this coffee. That's great. Good morning. I get up. I make my coffee and I get to work and welcome to the real world. I feel old now. I've been drinking it since I was young. It's not really doing crossword puzzles next. All right, my routine is, and I'm not kidding, I guess I realized this this morning, I drank four cups of coffee. Oh God. One giant cup, but I brew four and it I only have a little bit left. So it's a three and change. How much time do you spend in the bathroom? That doesn't affect me there. It cuts through you, man. How do you do it? Not no, not once you're used to it. Okay, so it's just the early yes. And then in the afternoon, I have a big giant iced coffee. Man, I gotta have my iced coffee in the afternoon. Otherwise I crash hard. So see what I did was we've got a keurig that we've had since we were married and we've used this. You are destroying this planet with that thing. Just hold on, hold on before. And decided, okay, I'm gonna go all in here and to kind of dip my toe in. That's the thing I had to choose from. So I'm going through this first pack that I've got and I'm addicted. So now I'm going to have to think about what to do going forward. That was my way of checking to see if I would in the become addicted. And I'm addicted. All right, nicely done. Yes. Nicely done. Hey, lots of testing going down at Daytona. You know that next gen car. I don't know if you've heard about it. And it's been pack racing. They've had crazy windy conditions there. It's been fun to watch though on the YouTube feed. That's where I've been catching. That has been. It really has been. There's been a lot of good action on there and NASCAR has been holding some pretty good amount of people streaming that at one time. Yep, yep. It's good stuff. It's good stuff. You're so used to watching the television broadcast, where it's constantly cutting to different angles and views and all this stuff. So watching one shot or a couple shots is a little weird. It's like something happens on the track. What happened? Oh, I don't know. You can't go back. There's no replay. Just see the pace truck going out there. I'm sure something must have happened. Right. But they have added garage interviews. So that was kind of cool. Saw Joey Logano and Corey la joy and Dale junior. And it's always staggering when it happens too because I think Alex weaver is the one that they've got out there. So the on track action is so far away that the cameras they don't have microphones up they're really picking it up. So it's just kind of like a drowned out. It's there, but it's not aggressive. And then she pops in with the microphone interface, and it's like, or you're in the garage. Okay, wow, okay. Yeah. But no, it was all brown at lunchtime yesterday. Lunchtime here in the West Coast. I was just eating. And like you said, all of a sudden it woke me up. Wow, okay, we're gonna talk to someone now, great. Something's happening. But no, it is awesome. It's been great to have. This is something we've been missing in this sport for the last few years is the off season testing. I know testing is not super exciting. It's in the off season. It's great. It gives you something to do. You can see that your desk, listen to race cars go around, and these next gen cars sound great, by the way. They are loud. They are alive. Very loud. Okay, so I asked you for some notes for another reason, but I figured I'd throw them into the script here for those that are just listening to us. Maybe they're new to the sport. They're checking out NASCAR. They're not sure what's going on with this next gen car. It's too much for them to take. So at a basic level for a casual fan, they're just getting in. What is the NASCAR Cup Series next gen race car? Well, so it's a brand new race car. Things are totally different. It looks different. It feels different. More than just a number shifting. But the big bullet points we have here, you're going to have composite bodies. So what these are are more like a resin type body instead of a sheet metal body. So when the car hits the wall or something, it doesn't damage it where you can't repair it. It doesn't cut down the tires usually. You're usually able to compete pretty well for the rest of the race. Kind of like what we've seen in the Xfinity series the last few years. So yeah, it was a little no longer be fabricating their own sheet metal and their own bodies. So this is interesting. They gotta hate that. I'm sure. Yeah, there's gonna be a lot less games being played, although I hosted a space on Twitter with Brian Murphy of sewer house racing. He says, once they get things figured out between these teams on how these things work, they'll figure out ways to toy with it a little bit. But it will be a lot harder. There will be a much more of a box. Obviously, single lugnut wheels, that's something that's been a big deal that people freaked out about. Take it out, man. Lots of freak out over this. Yeah, but it seems like it's gonna be totally normal to me, but it's gonna be cool. Again, talk to Brian Murphy about those and there are nowhere and tear to be really seen or heard from to the test so far. So it seems like the issues everybody was asking if it was going to be a problem with the aluminum wheels as a non issue. So that's good. Yeah, totally. And one thing I found out this week, just, you know, watching the feet I'd had no idea this was here. Rearview mirror camera, which I guess is optional, but why would you not have it?.

"Finally when it mattered. So and at that point, everyone knew it was going to rain. We were all racing to the range. So everyone was running hard to try to put themselves in the right spot. So he did a great job. I'm happy for him and that team. That's great for that new team coming in. In their first year and getting the win, that's awesome. And for me to be there for that. It was very cool. Because he was there at my first couple in Pocono years back and I was very, very thankful to be there and celebrate with him for his first one. So special moment. And I would definitely have fun. Awesome, I bet, I bet. We're on with Ryan Blaney, and one thing that you do when you head to victory lane or right before victory lane, you hand your flag, your checkered flag over to a Blaney fan. What's it like to see their face just light up? I started doing that. I think 2017, something like that. It was right when they started interviewing us on the front stretch. My grandfather race. We used to not do that. We used to take checker flag and you go right to get your ring. But now they interview you to get out of the car in the front stretch and it's like your first time with face to face interaction with somebody and like three or four hours. So it's really neat to be there with the energy of The Crown right there. So that's super cool to be up close with them right after you win because you're really pumped up. They're really excited to and so I just want to say, all right, what can I do to show appreciation and it's unfortunate to finally get one checkered flag and I can only pick one kid out. But just try to show our appreciation for the family of taking their kids out to the race, you know, trying to build young race fans because I remember being a kid like that to stands when I was young. And that really is watching and seeing the excitement on their face. Especially when they get the checkered flag is really makes my day. And actually it's been cool I've been able to meet some of the families afterwards. The kids I've given the checkered flag to you. So just trying to make a memory for those kids that hopefully something that they'll think about and they'll stick with them for a lifetime. They'll think back on that moment like, man, I can't believe that was so cool and I was a kid. I got to check if I got to race. So I don't need that flag. I get a trophy. So it's pretty easy for me to give away and try to make a special form. Absolutely. Anytime we have Ryan Blaney, we got to talk some Star Wars. Disney+ announcing like ten shows coming? Or is there any particular one you're looking forward to? I have to look and see what's coming. I've been so busy but this is what the count has not been really active here. And I've been trying to focus on brief and it's great, but that's something I need to get on. But I'm looking forward to seeing what they got. You know, I mean, there's a lot of exciting things coming out just from the marvel and Star Wars Disney side of it. I feel like. So there's a lot of cool things coming out and I try to keep up with all of it. It's almost sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything. I got to catch up this winter on some stuff I need to rewatch or watch and there you go. That's a better question for next time. That'll get me on the show next time when I actually look it up and we can talk about all that stuff. All right, perfect. Perfect. Hey, next year, you had a chance to drive the 2022 next gen race car recently. What's your impression of this thing? Yeah, we just had the role to work up days right after the race, but that's the Monday and Tuesday after that Sunday race. And it was cool to go to a track where you just ran on in the current car and run the next gen or you can kind of can really pick out the differences of it as discretion your mind. And so I thought it was really nice. You kind of worked through some bugs in it. The F of X are kind of clean up. You'll have that with any kind of new car, just some quality issues and parts and stuff like that, the best way to kind of go about it. But I thought once we got rid of it, the car was really great. I thought it ran also on those road courses you can hustle the car really good. They just handle a lot different just the whole base feel of the race car with it being a completely different type of car. I mean, there's no truck on the track bar. It's this new car's independent rear suspension. So we've never had the gearbox the way different. So everything is just drivers learning something new from what we've done for a long, long time. So but I really did enjoy it. I look forward to testing it more in the off season here. I know we have some lined up and can't wait to get some more laps in it and see what it's got for next year. All right, wrapping up our time with Ryan Blaney here one more question I gotta ask you about your Ryan Blaney family foundation. Tell us more about that. Yeah, I started my foundation a couple years ago and two, three years ago and so we mainly work with the Alzheimer's association and some person with our fan and the grand my grandfather had Alzheimer's. Pretty bad and passed away from it and it's just a bad disease to watch someone go through just some of mine is just deteriorating over time and it's hard to watch as an outside perspective, but it's really hard for that person to go through. Not recognizing your family, not knowing, just slowly losing grip on kind of reality and what something simplest to you is just not simple anymore. So we wanted to figure out what Alzheimer's association kind of help out that, whether it's raising awareness or funds and so that's been a lot of work, but it's been really humbling and neat to meet up a lot of people. And this year we worked with UPMC. University of Pittsburgh medical center up in Pennsylvania. Deal with brain health through our concussions, things like that. So it's been a lot of fun. We're sending two fellows to school to kind of get their training to open up their own facilities, whether it's in the Charlotte area or wherever they want. So a lot of brain health that we're working on and it's been really neat to meet a lot of people that have been pioneers in that industry and a lot of stuff kind of carry over to our side of NASCAR concussions and things like that and symptoms and after we work towards helping that out. So it's really neat. You can find out a lot about it if you go to the Ryan Blaney family foundation website. And yeah, we love to both everyone check it out and we'll keep on going with it. All right, appreciate the time once again, where Ryan Blaney, you got another notch on the final app scorecard here between you and Justin Allgaier. I appreciate the time and good luck throughout the playoffs..

So <Speech_Male> I think this car is <Speech_Music_Male> a great match <Speech_Music_Male> for this track <Speech_Music_Male> or any track, <Speech_Music_Male> whereas the car <Speech_Music_Male> we have now <Speech_Music_Male> doesn't work everywhere. <Speech_Music_Male> And <Speech_Music_Male> it's difficult in places <Speech_Music_Male> like this. <Speech_Music_Male> So <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I'm sold now. <Speech_Music_Male> You know, I was <Speech_Music_Male> skeptical, but <Speech_Music_Male> I think <Speech_Music_Male> it's going to work really <Speech_Music_Male> well. The car gets around <Speech_Male> the corner. It's not too <Speech_Music_Male> small. I thought <Speech_Music_Male> the track would be too small <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> for our cars and they just <Speech_Male> wouldn't handle and drive <Speech_Male> well. <SpeakerChange> But <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> this is a totally different <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> beast. And finally, <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> any complaints on that <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> next gen <SpeakerChange> car? <Speech_Music_Male> I don't know, yeah, I'm <Speech_Music_Male> really didn't have enough laps <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> to <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> file <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> any complaints to be <Speech_Music_Male> honest with you. You know, I'm sure <Speech_Music_Male> if I drove the <Speech_Music_Male> car and test <Speech_Music_Male> or in <Speech_Music_Male> a pack of if I could <Speech_Music_Male> get to Daytona with <Speech_Music_Male> some guys and run <Speech_Music_Male> in a pack and <Speech_Music_Male> well, I can't see this. I <Speech_Music_Male> can't see that. I'd love to <Speech_Music_Male> do this and that <Speech_Music_Male> and move this. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> This seems <Speech_Music_Male> pretty low. <Speech_Music_Male> But, <Speech_Music_Male> you know, <Speech_Music_Male> in a short <Speech_Music_Male> track, I kind of like to be able <Speech_Music_Male> to see <Speech_Music_Male> a little higher, but <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> I didn't <Speech_Music_Male> notice anything. I <Speech_Music_Male> really <Speech_Music_Male> not to say that it's <Speech_Music_Male> all great. <Speech_Male> I just didn't <SpeakerChange> run up flaps <Speech_Male> to really get to that point. <Speech_Male> To wrap things up <Speech_Male> with Dale Earnhardt junior, <Speech_Male> we got to hear his <Speech_Male> thoughts on his <Speech_Male> 2021 <Speech_Male> Cup Series <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> championship pick. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You got to say Larson <Speech_Male> looks like the best guy out <Speech_Male> there right now. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You know, <Speech_Male> I thought the Penske <Speech_Male> cars had good speed <Speech_Male> at Phoenix the last several times <Speech_Male> we've been there. <Speech_Male> So if <Speech_Male> blind can somehow <Speech_Male> get through <Speech_Music_Male> Martinsville, <Speech_Music_Male> I think <Speech_Music_Male> you can have a good <Speech_Music_Male> opportunity <Speech_Male> to go to <Speech_Male> Phoenix <Speech_Male> and perform well. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> this is my heart to <Speech_Music_Male> make that 5 car. <Speech_Music_Male> It's just so <Speech_Male> good.

"America motormouth and nascar xfinity series released. Their schedule. They pretty much mirrors than ask our cup series scheduled for twenty twenty two with portland thrown in there. Which is kind of an interesting wrinkle. The indy cars go there. I would assume they would not use the first little dogleg. They will go all the way straight to turn him. I would assume that would be the case after the first lap iraq. Yes that would be a good point. Nate how do the portland race really come about. Nascar has been trying really hard to get back to the northwest as best. They could mardi enda ben candy nascar executive who's been doing a lot of the scheduling for all three series. Talked about this link. Today that nascar has been looking at pacific northwest. They looked at some spots in seattle and portland. And i think to your point. We're going to have green savary promotions who promote the indycar races. Well and they also did the mid ohio race indycar and nascar. So i think just made a lot of sense from the perspective of when you look at nascar going to these new road course venues or maybe a street course. Eventually it's natural that they would look at places like road. America like mid ohio and now like portland. We're the indycar series is already gone. Established foundation doesn't add a new road course jeff but it does replacement ohio on the schedule and essence trucks going there so your thoughts on going to the north west on the. I think it's great for for the expanding series. As long as i've been in the sport i've been hearing about going to the northwest. We keep hearing about it here. Trucks ran north west for a while. But you know. I think it's great. We need to be. I've said for years when we don't need to run as many races possible. We need to be in as many places as possible. The more we can take this racing circuit and on the road and show more people the better off. We're going to be because once you the race and you experience it you get hooked and so i think it's a great move so i guess the immediate question is does cup follow and to your point. Natives there are three course race in the offing. Someday let's hope so. I certainly want there to be. Yeah i i hope. Cup gets to like jefferson pacific northwest they. We're talking about a racetrack in the seattle area. Twenty years ago sure there's definitely cancelled mile and a half. This makes more sense. Of course it exists already. It's already there you have a group. That's already promoted the event they know what to do it. I think it'll be terrific. Let's grab a phone call from keith. What's going on keith. Hey how's it going guys keep from detroit just wanted to get your feeling on Indycar just announced today that they are moving their race for twenty twenty three into downtown detroit And they're they are prepping. The roads they have of course laid out through the buildings down across the river. How you guys feel about nascar coming to the motorcity innate. I talked about inker about this this weekend. Who kind of runs. Things for roger penske on that side. I know this is an objective. One of the reasons they went down to one race at detroit for indycar versus the traditional doubleheader. What do you know about going on the streets of detroit. Obviously next year has been announced they will say at bellagio at this point. And it certainly sounds like twenty twenty three. They want to be in the streets of detroit. Bill has been a great facility for them and you do get the skyline backdrop. But obviously if you're running in downtown detroit you are right literally there in the backyard of gm their headquarters being right there in the city's so yeah i think good move could be freely car in jeff. Maybe in the future nascar street race. Cows wanted me and everybody loves michigan national speedway. But you know what now that on. Jeff jeff like jerry. I will say this the nashville the indycar race national. It was awesome the atmosphere. The vans incredible you could walk from hotels to the track. It was terrific and nashville is known for what bars you got the good time. Exactly i think nass carl has called in. This might be the first time nascar over the last caller show. I don't know. Yeah so nascar. Today i you. Sometimes you got to save the best for last month. That's right You know we've been talking about a lot of the variables at talladega. But how about this. Fella's could we see the double lime who'll be effectiveness. Hey late in the race. Aw everybody's trying to get a spot something like this and it may be one of the playoff taveres but the double line rule jeff double line role is a factor in every race daytona talladega. I mean it is from the time they dropped the green flag. And it's very difficult thing to police. I know some fans don't like you there's been calls to get rid of it. There's a reason it's there and if you took the rule away you'd find out real quick wildlife. Yeah it's a factor in every race and the drivers eat understand the rules and and it's hard to buy it sometimes but if you don't they're going to bust you period in the story i think it factored into the race at talladega. A year ago with benedetto an stenhouse lieber buscher on the last lap non-playoff drivers but it certainly could affect platforms. It seems like it's every other race. Let's clean up a couple of things. Real quick. pinski announced their kuchis for twenty twenty two moving forward nate. You have the details on that force real quick. I do paul woeful. Remain the crew chief before the number twenty two of joey logano and number twelve or i'm sorry number two germany bulletins with austin syndrich moving over and then jonathan hasler. I leave correct moves over to become lying blaney screechy from the number twelve replacing todd and then harrison burton with brian wilson. Who moves up. Who's one annex any series champion. Yes they got their whole lineup. Smashed up and essentially the. What's what's what's very unique about. Crew chiefs today is compared to ten years ago as they do more than just set the car right. They may not even set the car. There's all engineering staff. And it's believe pesky is doing is they're trying to get the right driver crew chief lineup rights of the communication. Is there a lot of effort being put into that and it's interesting to see how teams make these decisions crew. Chief job is crazy. What a trixie has asked to do. Today is unbelievable. It's a really really tough job. Do the crucial the general manager job but Yeah buddy parents would call everybody. Would you know what even if it didn't work you'd be lots on. You always said that's the most fun you ever on race team. I like the pairing of Of austin syndergaard. Jeremy boland's you bring in a young driver. You have that veteran leadership combination of what they could possibly do. No doubt about it. I think that's wise of team. Penske two kind of pair that kind of group together. Yeah yeah it. Listen also senator will be fun to watch a few races run and cuff this year. He's gone right at it you know. He hasn't gone in there like a rookie scared. He's gone right at it. He's gonna be funding. I love brian. Wilson get another chance with harrison terrific. I think that's awesome for everybody. And keeping joey and paul together. Good idea as well. We'll see over the weekend at talladega. That's it for motormouth today..

"Said that i think kevin harvick. This is his best shot. But i really believe when you look at those drivers that we byron as the driver that that i would choose. I think that The chevrolets and hindered motorsports of ring. Fast cars go to these places and environ has shown to me over the last probably three races on the super speedways than that. He's a much better driver and understands what it takes to get his car to the front and win dj. I have a question for you. And i kind of want jeff burton and follow up on it so. We've talked a lot about the manufacturer games kind of seems to be creeping into the picture for the weekend once again. You knew senior very well. They told him your objective is to help all the other chevy teams what. What would he have said. Oh gosh he'd laugh way harder net where he would have given them that look like. Are you seriously kidding me. He didn't he wasn't gonna play along with that. I mean he's he was the mentality that he was there to win for himself his sponsors and even though we understood that if he could utilize teammates and others from that manufacturer with the chevrolet that and that was good but thinking that you were going to get the help me out with that being beneficial to him. You could tell at aside. In my opinion jaffe may have a different opinion about that. Worry about that because everybody wanted lock over his bumper and follow him. I think i think you could ask. Mike skinner what he thinks about his teammate. Who didn't really get much help senior. That would be an awkward conversation. I i dj. We really appreciate join us. Thanks to be empowered. Nascar america modern. We'll see a telladega all right. Thanks guys it's going to be a fun weekend. Thank you man. Thanks and stuff so yeah. Mike skinner calms laughing about that. Yeah he would've completely laughed. Even if jim campbell who heads up everything at chevrolet told him that he would have laughed. Say it's so difficult understand. I listen. I get it. I mean i understand. Why manufacturers won't their drivers to work together once one does it then the others kind of have to. It makes it very difficult for the others. Not but we've also seen the manufactures getting the same wreck. you know. there's not all positives. It's very difficult situation to put the drivers and i understand. I understand the business side of it. I understand that you know people won't all of the all the chevy guys were together. We're one team. Were chevrolet. I get it. It's it's great but there comes a point in the race in every race where you have to become a person that you don't wanna be in everyday life and that is self senator selfish arrogant right. You have no friends. Everybody likes your kids not to be right. But that's what you have to be when it comes to win in these races and sometimes that doesn't work with teammates if it does come down to that. Toyota's kind of out of the mix. Aren't they talking about them. Trying to help christopher bell. There's no way if you think streep numbers matters there In big trouble. Yeah sure and. I love your selfish comment. You were the first person i ever heard. Say that being a race car driver is all about being selfish and yeah i'm okay with that night. More calls on the okay to talk. Exp- finnity twenty twenty to schedule. We come back. on nascar. america murder mouths america motormouth and nascar xfinity series released. Their schedule. They pretty much mirrors than ask our cup series scheduled for twenty twenty two with portland thrown in there..

"That obviously dini has all the pressure off of him so he would love to go win another race and keep it where no one else. Secures of themselves through the next round of the playoffs. Even though we know that that that could possibly be done on points for a couple of people. So what. I do like i like denny hamlin in this situation. He's actually got nothing to lose any. Maybe the best dropped her own. The super speedways right now but blaine is right there with them in my opinion. Dj in the category of things. I never thought. I would hear at the beginning of the year. Rodney children's said this week. He feels like the four teams. Biggest strength of the team is a superspeedway package. I mean do you agree that this is harvick's may be best shot left to win a race this year. I think i think one hundred percent correct there. I honestly do even though they're program has come a long way of. They've made some gains with their equipment. But you know the the the reason that they're showing the way that they are in. The playoffs is too because they have a championship driver. And future hall of famer in kevin harvick driving those cars and just not willing to give up whatsoever in any way shape or form regardless of of knowing the fact. That cars aren't as good as the other cars that that he's battling with your so. I know that that kevin has one on the super speedways kenny this weekend. There's no doubt my mind that he can he's going to be pushing shoving all that he can but kevin harvick's also a smart race right knowing win to make all of that happened. So i'm looking at this. As his opportunity to secure his way through the next round. Because i know that pretty sure that he's not looking forward to the wroval and trying to make a good bet definitely dj motormouth. All about the callers. And we're going back to the phones now and talk to one of them. We got james on the line. James go ahead. hey I wanted to ask Which the drivers outside the top eight right now. Do you think the best chance to surprise with a win at talladega on sunday outside the top eight so the drivers below the cut line byron harvick boom bell. Dj we'll start with you. Anybody you like those four. Yeah all of them you know. I just said that i think kevin harvick. This is his best shot. But i really believe when you look at those drivers that we byron as the driver that that i would choose. I think that The chevrolets and hindered motorsports of ring. Fast cars go to these places and environ has shown to me over the last probably three races.

"Champ. Go ahead all right. Thank you jeff. Hello dale junior. I hope you're excited for talladega sunday. So i know. The schedule's been released to the extent series. But looking at the schedule would race. Do you think you're gonna run at for next year. In twenty twenty to asoka short tracks. There's probable be talladega short tracks and albert now forty so short tracks not a playoff race and in the southeastern part of the country because of the sponsors preference so there you martinsville in the spring would be my guess about that. I don't know maybe oh. We got another caller payload on the line. Hey how you doing junior My quick question for you is. Do you think we might see a more wins for jinyan motor sports and sometime next year next year. Yes sir this year. Yeah i mean you know we're you. I was talking to to talking to justin this week about our team. And ham and noah especially our team and i've seen this in a lot of race teams that speed comes in gets we talked about it with bracket alaska. He's waiting on that speed to show for him and his team is ready to execute. So i've told no an injustice week. I said you know it's it's so great to have drivers like yourselves that they're ready to go when that cars reading. The team doesn't always have the speed. We don't always send them to the race track with winning cars but when we do. They're ready they never.

"And the role that it would be at texas and michigan so there's opportunity for somebody who's twenty five points back there's opportunity bells the only guy i look at that list. Feel good about with the wroval sitting there. I yeah i twenty five. We'll because of the road. Like jeff says i mean. He has been so strong on road courses this year. I think he can win. The rest of that list. Like harvick is not great on super speedways. He's not really been great on road courses lately byron and bowman. I mean maybe they can do well. But like i feel like. They're right back where they started after race. One round one. At and las vegas was exhibited of why. I don't make predictions. Because i went into this race thinking yeah well five hundred horsepower. Packages hendrix bread butter. I thought they would come out of here with all four of their guys very much alive and with the possibility of eight. Now i feel like we're right back where we were in round one where i don't know if hendrix going to get two drivers out of the second round you could argue. Maybe they should have had everybody in had they made the right pit calls on sunday. So let's talk about that. Nate hindred finds himself in the same exact spot. They found themselves in around sixteen. Have they been good enough at the superspeedway races to get themselves on the right side of the cut. Line going into the mobile. I think that chase elliott has marty but again like i look at the other drivers there and no one stands out as being like a great. I mean william byron's one at daytona but kyle larson has been decent but like he doesn't strike me as you know an all star superspeedway racer. I just i look at that. The two tracks left. And i look at what hendrix. I also look at what jobs racing did on a five track. Jeff at las vegas and i kind of wonder if maybe they were saving a little bit for for vegas. That might might suit them well around three well so the concern me about vegas was larsen. Early had a lot of speed later did and even though he got behind would certainly hurt him. He didn't wasn't able to just blast up through the field. Like we've seen in the past. There's only one race. They're they're moving their next on the playoffs. Not a concern outs. Bowman did not have the speed that he need but the other two did. William buyer was fast enough. William arthur won that race and william barn had enough speed to win that race and chase elliott had enough speed. So i think there's i think there's reasonably optimistic but the bottom line.
DawgNation's Mike Griffith Makes Wild Accusations About the Potential of Georgia Football
"Going to read you a comment. That danny sheridan gave to us. I think it was about a week ago. Danny was picking the final four and he georgia to go to the final four this coming season and he said i would say the fourteen would be. George think georgia is loaded in. Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star. I mean my goodness talent is everywhere and now it's just a matter georgia finishing the job on football field. Which brings me one more comment and we don't we. Don't go out looking at other shows to bring you information. We take it from our own program. And i believe those two weeks ago booger mcfarland. We all know boogers credentials. He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.
20 Years Later: How Dale Earnhardt's Death Changed NASCAR Forever
"Ryan mcgee. Espn daily's chief. Paint trading correspondent. Thank you for joining me man. That's me man when i started. Espn a really really long. Time ago and i had this accent there were like. Hey you know about nascar right. I go yes you do. More than just know about nascar ryan you have now reported and narrated a new film for east sixty and it's called intimidator the lasting legacy of dale earnhardt. And i wanna talk to you about it today because it's a lot. It's about a lot more than how transcendent dale was on the track. It focuses on how he radically changed. Nascar's culture when it comes to safety but before we get into that. I do want you to just kinda sketch out for us. Who dale was for the uninitiated here and what made him such a towering figure in the nascar universe well and it's interesting because he's been gone twenty years i mean nascar's more than seven hundred races without del earnhardt and so for those of us of a certain age the idea of having to explain him and and why he's such a big deal seems insane but we saw what the last dance. The last dance ron's and half of twitter was like well. He was good. But you know this jordan character. Yeah we should know about it and we were so offended but bless their hearts. They didn't see him play. And so in this case you know. You have an entire generation twenty years exactly of sports fans who didn't see our heart race but it wasn't just about seventy six wins seven championships and also was just about the presence in the room. Always say with dell earnhardt if there was a thousand of us in a ballroom and we're all looking at a stage and he were to come in the back door when none of us were looking. We'd all instinctively. Just turn around because the air in the room changed. There was just a presence in a way that it carried himself and conducted his business and the intimidator thing that was legit. Every time i will. I know him. And every time i was in a room with him there was a little part of me. That was just trying not to say something stupid or pass out so on the back of the baseball card ryan so to speak. What are the accomplishments. That people should know about what dale did. Well the seventy six winds are really big deal but the seven championships and seventy plus year. The stockcar racing only three people one seven championships the checkered flag bands around their heat waves to them. That checkered card. His greatest success was on the super speedways. the taliban soup speedway and daytona he one thirty four racists and though tone national speedway thirty four nella one of those was the daytona five hundred and that was part of the appeal for him was even though he was this one tough customer and the man in black timid and all those things it took you twenty tries to finally win the daytona five hundred lawson in heartbreaking fashion multiple times twenty years frustration. Taylor that program names on the can't take it off. I guess i love it. He just he was in every man but he also of superman and that was always the appeal and outside of that ballroom. Full of the sports powerbrokers ryan. What was his status. Like regionally among the nascar faithful. How would you begin to describe what he meant to those people. What i hated it. Because when he came along in the late nineteen seventies. and you know it wasn't disrespect. But he didn't back down from. Richard petty from kailua from bobby allison from david pearson from any pissed them off the couldn't stand him and he would recommend a short track race. In martinsville and afro richer. Penn is electric. Listen kid you can't do it like this. And he just kept doing his way.
Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

"Earnhardt, and he really was kind of John Wayne and Elvis all wrapped up in one American bad ass and flare definitely has that same zeal. And I'm of the mind that Dale Earnhardt, Jeff, Gordon, we just we just did this huge documentary. I was a part of this documentary on Fox Sports about the Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt rivalry, and how it just exploded NASCAR into mainstream American consciousness and not only the fan base. But corporate America, how would you describe I kind of feel like as a fan I feel like dusty and flare like dusty Rhodes and Rick flair their rivalry and their relationship had that same impact on NWEA wrestling. That's my opinion. What do you think about that? I could see that. I just see that. The intimidator Dale Earnhardt, look course with grittier side. I never I never looked at Jeff Gordon is gritty blue collar. It. Just didn't didn't that didn't resonate some that persona to that those qualities that's not a negative on the guy just said, he would be more. The you know. The smoother side of player, Jeff, Gordon, dusty and the intimidator there. Well, he was he was visiting lot hero. He was another huge. That's probably all the restaurant style. Never been the closest to John Wayne of any of them because it was a real free spirit. You know, not just ahead on his way about working together. He had a way with words in some made up from apply. I've done I've done live broadcast. We're talk about some things that I studied my rep attender nice after of course, I said what the hell is rep attended. I don't know. Nice words up as you go along. Okay. Let's one industies rep attended lines. So who is this? He was easy to pinpoint who he was. He was the son of a plumber, you know, little from Austin got into wrestling. He he's Turkishness business. He's you know, he wanted to be a pro ball player. He wanted to play baseball. You know, he was a good baseball player football in college. We could go to class for this way. You wouldn't go to class. So he went to a lot of schools and the restaurant found him, and it was a hell of a deal for now. He was he was the voice of the people for many years. He's what Steve Austin replace the source of the blue collar voice of pro wrestling, except when Austin came along it was just a much bigger social media window to harvest from. And that's what these guys are smarter doing. Now, they're they've mastered social media, whereas when I first got the benefit these guys, mashed. Some drinking whiskey and promos best promo man back in the day. And what's the best promo you ever saw dusty? And that's a flare the best because the deal was back in those days. You may run ten or twelve or fourteen allows events that's not an exaggeration. Folks. A lot of this with those loud events game its own set a promo or they would air in that market on the local television station. So you did promos all week you do does is almost a week around the loop. And so you've got practice practice practice. That's what makes player that's just a damn good because they didn't have any writers. They didn't have any a sister directors. They didn't have any production assistance. No that existed you've made up your own stuff. You had to have the wrestling with buildings within the Dayton of time. That's all you got to go out there and tell a story dusty and flare off of their own experiences of the last twenty four forty eight hours. Hours. We that into a story, and it was just brilliant. It was just like programming only. It was like a little infomercial. They're absolutely amazing. They're like lyricist. I've always said, you know, my job as a kid from Oklahoma. Watching wrestling fan broadcaster is a is a dream deal. It really is because the restaurants are the musicians and the the guys like me or a lyricist. So all we had to do is come up some lyrics on the the music. We heard we felt we saw put the right near that.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb here in the early days of car racing. Even a minor accident could be fatal. For example, Patrick Jack mart was killed at mid Ohio in one thousand nine hundred one after a head on collision with a Bank his car was left relatively unscathed. But Jack Martin ended up with a skull fracture caused severe brain damage lucky for other racers to of Jack marts friends stepped in and created a safety device that has changed the sport of car racing forever. Those friends were Jim downing and Jack marts brother-in-law Dr Bob Hubbard the two decided to combine Downing's knowledge of racing and Hubbard's expertise in engineering and skull anatomy to develop new safety gear to try to prevent deaths like Jack marks from happening. Again, these simple and effective invention. They created became known as the Hans device short for head and neck support. The Hans device isn't like a car airbag, which inflates a cushion to stop the driver in case of a collision. Instead, the Hans device pro. Actively uses a raised collar and two tethers to secure the driver's head. In other words, it's a shoulder collar that attached to both the car seats safety harness and the driver's helmet in the event of a crash. It keeps the racers head and neck properly aligned with the torso preventing the type of excess force that would otherwise result in serious or fatal neck and head injuries. But it took years for the Hans device to become a financial success. And unfortunately, it took the death of a high profile racer for NASCAR to take notice. When Dale Earnhardt senior was killed in two thousand one in a crash similar to Jack marts at the Daytona International Speedway the race and community including NASCAR finally took the Hans device seriously. Now, most recent organizations require the use of a Hans device for all drivers. The Hans device is specifically designed to prevent Basler skull. Fractures, those injuries are caused when a car suddenly decelerate s- in earnhardt's fatal crash Daytona. For instance, NASCAR determined. That he hit the wall going one hundred and sixty miles per hour. That's two hundred and fifty seven kilometers per hour and slowed by somewhere between forty two to forty four miles per hour about sixty seven to seventy kilometers per hour in just eighty milliseconds. This sudden deceleration is known as the delta v literally the change in velocity. A while. It's difficult to provide exact statistics on how many lives have been saved by the Hans device. We do know this NASCAR where certified hands are mandatory did not have one single driver fatality in the decade after earnhardt's death. Whereas there were one hundred twenty six deaths from crashes on drag strips and short tracks where hints devices are not required and hands estimates that of those one hundred twenty six deaths as many as twenty seven percent that's thirty four driver deaths could have been prevented by using the device, and no driver in an IndyCar or an any of nascar's major series has been killed by Basler skull fracture since it required.
