"More attention to the actual cause of the caution. Up there and dispatching our equipment, the William Byron Denny Hamlin thing we had no eyes on. We saw Danny go through the grass and by the time we got to a replay that showed the incident well enough to do anything to it, we had gone back to green, but I'm not sure that that issue is completely resolved as of yet. So we'll be looking at we'll be looking at that when we get back to back to work. But as I said, as we said, they had 8 laps under yellow to sort this out. What do you think is going on in the scoring town? No idea. No idea. And I've never been privy to set in a race and see how hectic it gets. I know it gets hectic. Listen, it's like mission control. You're trying to land a man on the moon. And you've got 40 of them on the racetrack. 38 of them been on the moon trying to find their way. So I know it's incredibly hectic. I give them that. But you know, you've got, you've put all these officials on pit road. You've put cameras on pit road. You know when there's equipment outside the box, you know when somebody's over the wall that much too quick, you know, you've got all those replays you've got all that. How could you not have this? How can you not have this? This is actually on the racing surface. You know what I mean? I mean, it's actually there. And they have an in car video. You've got all this stuff. You've got so many so many different things. So I felt like, and I said it before we started, is and I hate to say it, but this is how I feel is they were better off not to say anything. Just say we missed it, that's it. If that's what you want to say. But the explanation, it's like, you can sit there and be quiet and have people think you don't know what you're talking about, or you can start talking and remove all doubt. And they started talking, and they removed all out, that they don't know what they're talking about. You know, I mean, it was just one of those things where it's like they should have not said anything. I would have not said anything, I believe. Step away from all that, lord Byron, this felt a little bit out of character for young William. Yes. And it took me back to when he got wrecked at Darlington. I figured I bumped out a lead by Joey. It almost seemed as if he was trying to send a message not just to Denny, but maybe he did everybody like, hey, I'm tired of getting pushed around here. Even though, again, I don't think he and Denny really made contact. It almost felt as if he was kind of over identifying with what was happening. What did you make of what? So here's what I made. Here's what I took from it. I think it made me, I think what happened. Honestly, made me look at Darlington a little bit different. Because I didn't think that what he and Joey did, he getting into joy. And taking the lead. I didn't think that was a big deal. I just thought it was racing. Byron, William gets hit, and he's kind of calm when the race is all win. So yesterday, he's racing, and he doesn't get touched, but really what happened was 300 yards before they get to the end of the corner. It's when the wreck started, okay? Because Danny gasped out powered up and they just started to drift that way, drift that way. Then Danny realized they were too far out and you can see the fire come out of Denny's tailpipes as he's getting off as he checks up. Danny checks up and turns, but it's too late. That started way back over there. Yeah. You mean, people look right here, but that's not where that's not where it started. It started way back over there. What Byron was mad about there? Was he felt like Denny drove him up there? And he probably felt like he did it on purpose. You know what I mean? Whether Danny did or not. Only Denny knows that side of the story. But that's why he felt like and he felt like, I don't appreciate the way you raced me. Darlington, I go back and he was like, yeah, I raced you wrong. I'm guilty. So I'm not going to say anything. You know what I mean? And that's what I took from it a little bit was to say, maybe he did take some responsibility from what went on in his quiet way. What he's saying here is he God, this kid is so much reminds me of Jeff Gordon. Yeah. And in a lot of ways, where poking, poking, poking, he does nothing. And then you poke him one time, and it's like, oh my gosh. The Tiger comes out. It's the incredible hulk. Pretty come from. You know what I mean? I mean, so many, so many similarities on how he does things. And the way he reacted to this really surprised me. When I heard his interview, it really surprised me too because that though, William man, that's pretty good there. But I think it was. It's a broader message to say. I deserve to be here too, man. I deserve to be here. I deserve to be racing. I deserve to be where I'm at. We had fought our way back, and he felt like and he said it. That took us out of the win. That took the win away from us because it messed up our car just enough that it took the win. And I can't argue that because he had a fast car all day long. It's a great Jeff Gordon, comparison all the way down to the car number. I hadn't thought about that. It's time for a motor mounts to the race presented by eBay motors and this is where we talk about a quote from the race weekend. And this quote comes from the race winner who I did promise we get to eventually. Tyler Reddick, who now is won twice since announcing his impending departure in 2024 for 23 11 racing and now has won once since RCR announced that Kyle Busch will take his number 8 team next season for Richard Childress racing. So Tyler Reddick was asked after the race, how things are going with the number 8 crew. And Tyler said, I love my team. I've never been this close I am with this group as I have been with anyone else. And it's a type of bond and the friendship that we have that will outlive our tenure together as a driver and as a team, you know, we're already joking around about, you know, years down the road when I'm running somewhere else will probably still be doing the same things we're doing now. We'll probably still be spending spending time together hanging out, doing that sort of thing. That's just who we are. So yeah, we're making the most of this for sure. It is unfortunate that things do have to come to an end. And as it turned out, you know, it's coming to a close a little bit sooner than we all initially thought when I made my announcements, but it's the direction that our CR needs to take
Wallace holds off boss, title contenders to win at Kansas
"In the two races at Kansas Speedway this season the racing team co owned by basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan was in victory lane for both Bubba Wallace held off Denny Hamlin to take the checkered flag It's come out winners I knew it was only a matter of time I had a lot of people telling me that And so it's finally cool to see to come to fruition but two times is better than one time Wallace is only other win in the Cup Series was a rain shortened race in Talladega Alabama a year ago Though Hamlin was the runner up he's the co owner of the car driven by Wallace Greg Ellen Kansas City Kansas

"You see my point? He's not gun shy about speaking out about the need to make sure the car is safe. And that was the same Kevin Harvick that used to talk about his race team. So that's why I don't think he has changed. He still has the tool to calculate it conversation with the media to move the needle where he wants to move it. And that's how he did it at RCR and all of those things. I just feel that this is a major tip of the hat to when we're organization. That SHR, Ford, Rodney Childers, Greg zip Delhi, and all the other decision makers over there. He has so much confidence in. He doesn't have to air it publicly. Now listen, I'm fine if he shuts the door slams his foot down and say, guys, what is the problem? That's great. That's what he should be doing. Yeah. But I just think that there's something to be said for that. It's really, really, really hard. To keep a guy with that much fire, comfortable and confident enough that you are working and doing it for 65 races. Not ten, 65. So I don't know, I don't know how that got here, but it's man, it's impressive. And listen, that conversation I have with Kevin, Kevin and I have a ton of respect for one another. His talent behind the wheel is amazing at 46 years old. His drive, his desire. He is. He's on that short list of drivers that I would love to have had a chance to crew G four because they just so good and the way they go about their business. And it was the easiest 20 minutes, I think we've ever had discussing. And he was just happy. Happy Harvick's nickname. I'm going to tell you when he's happy Harvard lookout. Happy literally and figuratively. And much like that 20 minute interview, I encourage everybody to check that out, by the way, on the motor sports and NBC YouTube channel. You can see Kevin Harvick on NASCAR American motor miles last week talking to Steve and Marty Snyder myself. He was just like that. After the Richmond victory, obviously in a good place in a good mood. And usually said, not calling out his picker, a driver who certainly could have done that, Steve, was Denny Hamlin. As you mentioned, the second straight week that a pit stop really cost the 11 team a win at Michigan, it was a penalty. This time it was the team dropped the Jack too early, essentially cost him three to seconds on that final stop at Richmond and that cost him a chance of winning. It comes back to finish fourth. A Hamlin kept a brave face about it afterward. He said, we were talking three car all day. And obviously we should have won, had it not been for that last pit stop. Are you going to ask for changes to the paper or do you know they just got
Kevin Harvick ends 65-race drought with 6th win at Michigan
"With time running out to make the NASCAR playoffs Kevin Harvick picked up his first win of 2022 after leading 38 laps at Michigan International Speedway locking himself into the postseason There could be at least 16 winners I mean you've still got Daytona You've got another road course There's a lot of things that can still happen here Harvick drove away from the field in the final stage to a 2.9 second lead over Bubba Wallace Wallace who is also trying to win his way into the playoffs finished second There's a lot of positives in this but I'm a person that looks at the negatives more than positives I need to change the button I want to win so bad And this was the best opportunity Denny Hamlin was third I'm Jerry Jordan

"Calls, but there's so much to talk about when you look at this week in motor sports, right? We have Mike joy on the download. We have a little NRX little nitro Rx racing IndyCar Xfinity and NASCAR Cup Series for Indy before we take the phone calls real quick. We're all going to be there. Indianapolis, the place is unbelievable. How great is it going to be to see Xfinity? IndyCar and cup. Two days full of racing from the road course. Yeah, it's just fascinating to see the difference in speed. When you put them when they're on the same track, exactly. It's like, oh my gosh, I mean, when we were running the brickyard and you go see an IndyCar run around there, Jeff and the stock cars that we drove. No comparison. Not saying it's what any more difficult what we did. Right. But the speed difference is that, and it's the same way on that road course. So just an incredible weekend. And I love watching the stars respect the stars. Biggest fans will be the other drivers. All right, let's hit the phones. We're gonna go through as many as we can here. Drew, go ahead. Hey guys, thanks for having me on. Real quick. At this point in the season is Chase Elliott's regular season points lead insurmountable. All right, Jeff, I'm gonna give that one to you. Chase sell it. He's gaining points. He has over a hundred points for the regular season champ, 5 races left. Anyone catching him? No, no one's catching him. Yes, his instrumental. All right, I like it simple enough there. All right, Justin, go ahead. Well, it's not practical for a NASCAR. If you have a 14 four core team and two of the cars get hit with something, and playoff points are so important right now. Wouldn't it be important for a NASCAR possibly to look at the other two Joe gift cards because that could hit a Kevin Hart coming over getting into the playoffs. All right, great question. Thank you for calling in just a DJ. I think the real simple fact is, all right, we know the 11 to 18 were caught. And while we know the 20 wasn't in the top 5 didn't go, you know, it all affects the playoffs. I think it's a legitimate question. I think you kind of have to let the chips fall where they are, do you have a differing opinion? No, I don't own that. I mean, I'm so difficult. I mean, it's almost impossible. I mean, you've had the teams there for a certain amount of time. They have to get back on the road. You know, it's not like that. It's an hour down the road or anything like that. So I think when everything's done and said, you have to move forward. I think there is a number that needs to be put on there that we're going to keep close by. You can go ahead and load your stuff up if I'm that. Loads of stuff up, but you sit right here that until we get through with the expecting the winner and the second place till we get to where we know we have a winner and then we're not going any further back. NASCAR has shown they've been flexible to make changes. We'll see if it changes this weekend. Nick, go ahead. Hey, thanks for taking my call. Question for you guys. Was the penalty that JGR was assessed enough based on the infraction. We saw RFK earlier this year. They got the book thrown at them for what they did. Was it enough for what they penalized JGR four? All right, so I'm going to start with this one. Great question, Nick. All right, let's start with what they got penalized. I think it's different from the 11 to the 18 because when you win a race, it's more than just prize money. There's things that enact in your sponsorship and your manufacturers. There's a lot of things that total that bucket of money up that you get. So it with financially was a big hit. It's impossible to say the number, but I am confident it's well more than what anyone has paid in a fine yet. So the question then becomes points because I don't know exactly how many order, but one, but it wasn't a hundred points, as RFK lost. So we're a little split, not big enough, big enough with the DQ. I think this comes down for me, what is the value of DQ next to your name in the record books? Yeah. It's a great question. And it's something that will be continued to be debated. I mean, honestly, yeah, it's a great question. And listen, there's no straight answer for it. To be blunt about it, it's a lot of opinions about it, but I do agree with seeing what DJ was saying. This penalty to give is much bigger than people are recognizing. And we know the insides of the sport and this was not an inexpensive pillar at all. This was a massive penalty in

"Think there's two parts of this. I don't think the disqualification adds anything to what's going on with the 18 of Kyle Busch. But getting outrun by Danny Hamlin may or may not. He didn't win that race with one of the better cars. Ty Gibbs did run pretty well to your point, DJ. I checked in with ties management team. He didn't even get TRD simulator time. I think we talked about same time. It was iRacing. It was 40 laps on iRacing. Jeff, your son is learning this new car. You're around drivers all the time in this new car. How impressive is it that ty Gibbs, I don't even say talent because I don't think a question that it was his maturity that impressed me the most that he was willing to be held back and just go through the process of a Sunday in the Cup Series. So I think that's exactly right. I agree with you a 100%. He did a nice job of doing exactly what the goal was. The goal was to run some lats stay in the lead lap. Hopefully get something good happen. They did. They got to restart with the rec with Denny Hamlin or all Chastain. He was in the right line, picked up like 7 or 8 spots, but then never gave them back. Like that's what you expect from a rookie you expect, okay, we're going to give you a talented rookie. We're going to give you some track position and then find a way to keep it. He did all those things. So I agree with I agree with what you're saying. He needs to learn how to be a cup driver. He knows how to be an extended driver. He needs to learn how to be a cub driver and drive these cars. Yeah, I mean, he's impressed me from day one. The day that he went to went to Daytona on the road course and won that race, I'm like, that guy's for real. There's no getting around it. Yeah. So let's move the conversation forward a little bit when we look at Kyle Busch, right? So 60 wins, two time chain. I think everybody knows what you're losing behind the wheel if you can't re sign Kyle Busch. There's no doubt. No one up here is going to say man can't drive. The question is there's a little bit of fog around the business model M and M Mars is out. Can they sell him? Can they raise the capital to bring him back so the simple question is, DJ, if they can't get the business correct. Yep. Would you lose sleep over having to let college know? Knowing he's probably going to go win wherever he goes. But moving Thai gives into that seat. Yeah, okay, so let me say one thing first. And so this is going everybody saying Denny Hamlin cheated and got disqualified in Kyle Busch. New one knew anything about what was done there. They drove their race cars the way they were. And that's what you do as a driver. You don't know these things. So leave them out. If you're going to stay at the team, took this. I'm going to say, I'm going to disagree with a little bit of what you said there while I go, I think it's they're trying to sell sponsorship. When you're talking to companies that are willing to spend 15, $20 million to get on the side of a race car and your organization with Kyle Busch as the driver and your team gets disqualified from a race. I think that's a point that they're having a hard enough time before that happened to sell sponsorship there in today's world. I don't think that's a good thing. Couldn't have been could not have been worse timing. You know, this isn't something that we need to say. They go do all the time. Have they always pushed the envelope? Absolutely. Unfortunately, they got called at this time. So I hope that it doesn't do that. I would not, I know they are doing everything between Toyota Joe Gibbs Racing and all the marketing companies. They've even brought in other people trying to sell sponsorship to keep him. They do not want to race against Kyle Busch somewhere else because they know the talent that they have there. He's one of the top drivers to ever come through that the sport of NASCAR race and then in the Cup Series, future Hall of Famer. You don't want to let him go, but I think this could hurt. There's already friction in the relationship, if not the deal would be done. Because whether it's business or not, it's still friction, right? If you can't pay me, and I think you should, or whatever's going on, that's still friction, even if we get along. And then you add this. Then you add this, and I can not get out of my head, helmet, New Hampshire, saying on the radio, hey, make note with the slowest Gibbs car here. And then you get beat by a teammate, and then you get d-q'd. There is already tension and this does nothing to help it. So absolutely nothing. So that's fascinating, though, because so right, so the crew chief in me, right? I was never been a team owner, had never been the rep out there trying to sell myself. I see the DQ is just one more penalty. But if I'm hearing you correctly, I want to go back to this because this is fascinating to me. Your point is that it's not points and penalty whatever. The image, the perhaps tarnished image, does a company in today's world won't align with someone who has been disqualified. Forget penalties, forget fines, disqualified. You think that term right there makes this penalty larger than points in money. I had 100% to me. I think that's why this is the biggest penalty that they could put down on someone who never you look at his teammate Denny Hamlin. He got the trophy and all of that taken away. And the wind. He was going to be the winningest driver ever at Pocono. But when you're trying to sell a company on the fact that, hey, we're a reputable business. We do things right. We do everything the right way. And then you have a dequeue beside your name at a race that you ran second in. I think they, in one sense, they appreciate the effort, but in companies they're probably trying to sell to. They're out here, these companies are ones that are dealing with the public and they can't take that chance.

"Hard and swings around and hits the front, concussive light symptoms, DJ, you and I grew up in a different time. Doctors weren't making this decision for you. You've pretty much making it yourself. I'm a fan of this. If you've got the right people and I think they do have the right people, I'm really curious what you think about it. Yeah, I think the protocol is now so much better. So much safer and it's not only better for the particular driver in that case that it's better for, but it's better for everybody else. I ran a race here in Charlotte in 2001 after my worst concussion of not having a memory of 5 days of being at Kansas and I turned around and raced the next week. And all I had to do was have my doctor in Hickory, North Carolina called NASCAR. At that time, and say, yeah, he's okay. And my doctor did that by me telling him that I was okay to race. And so I like what we have now. So unfortunately, I hate it for Kirk. I hate that these drivers are being put in that position with that, but it's, again, it's better not only for that competitor, but for the rest of the competitors. So this is a big circle here, but we talked about the penalties the Denny Hamlin and how much a win means. The other part of this system, we don't talk about as much, is I believe it allows all this to work as well. Because if you missed a race in the old system trying to write a championship, you were probably all done. Kurt Busch has won a race. Now that's a guarantee. He could lose points. We don't even know if he's going to come back in. My point is, I think everything works well together, right? We're going to have a medical staff that allows drivers to be supported to get these decisions. I will say we talk a lot about the new car when it comes to rules that and I'm confident there are hundreds of conversations going about continuous improvement on the new car. And I think that that's going to be a real conversation from here. Should this injury be expected? What does this compare to other accidents? G load. NASCAR has so much information that the number one priority should be current bush's health and getting him back whatever he needs to be healthy. And the number two priority should be, what have we learned from this medical event to try to prevent more medical events? We've always done that in NASCAR from the day Richard Petty tumbled at Darlington with his arm out the window and somebody said, we're going to put a window net in to this. So this is a continued demand on my left to said this. You never accomplish safety. It's an endless goal. You continue to chase it. And I think this is an unfortunate situation for Kurt Busch. But I think the whole industry is willing to say, all right, you know? Doesn't really matter what it costs. It doesn't really matter if we got to buy new parts or change new parts or we're all on board, how can we make it safer because the counter is? We're asking these drivers Jeff. How about those restarts? For why? We're putting drivers in positions where they can't be worried about how much it's going to hurt. And they never do. They do crazy things. Well, I feel really good about the commitment to NASCAR has and making things safer in a commitment to look at all the information to say, okay, here's where we are now. How do we take the next step? That wasn't the case 30 years ago, but today it is unbelievable the amount of committed people they have, very dedicated, care about the drivers, wanted to be safe and they will be working to make improvements. We are going to come back to you in just a little bit. Keep those

"Show is about all of college. Let's get right to it, Kyle. Yes, sir. I'm curious for all three of your opinions, but Jeff, this is mostly directed to you. How is it the race slide yesterday in Pocono? Didn't get a great view of it, but the instant there was Hamlin and Chastain. I watched it back a few times a day. Personally, Jeff, I'm with you for apparently what you said on the broadcast where I don't think that he did too much. But I saw there was quite a bit of backlash on Twitter. I was just kind of curious if you've gone back and forth on that or are you standing your ground that that's probably not the end of it, because you really didn't do too much there. You just cut them off a little bit. Well, what I said was I thought it should be the end of it. That's what I said because to me, but what are you going to do? I mean, you moved a guy out of the lane. He wrecked. You won the race. Like to me, I think it's just better for Denny Hamlin to move on. I agree with I do agree with what chase Elliott said. I thought it was done in a kind way, so to speak. He didn't just go in there, erecting wrecking. He put him in a position either lift or hit the wall. And raw stayed in it and ended up ended up reckoning. So I didn't the post race in our post race. I said, I thought it should be over. I think they should move on. I agree, I think that too. And if you look at the two cases to where Ross got into the back of Danny, Denny didn't have any choice or say so in the matter of being able to lift or get out of the way in those cases. Here, Ross had a choice. He could lift it probably lost 5, 6, 7 spots, and not hit the wall. He chose to try to stay in it as long as he could, and then he just runs out of grip. And if you're going to teach someone how to pay someone back with out using the front of your car and just wrecking them completely, Denny Hamlin shows how you do that. The real unfortunate side of this to me is that Kevin Harvick got called up in it. That's the unfortunate side, but what I saw Denny do yesterday that that's about as big a payback as you can do without actually just running over someone. Sometimes you can do a lot of damage with a scalpel. Doesn't always take a camera. And that was very surgical right there. That's a very, very talented man. They knew how much grip there was for that last 6 or 8 feet to the right of that car. It was well done. I bet you, Chandler. Hey guys, and sorry I haven't been on here for quite a while. But you know, I know we're talking a lot about, you know, handling accomplish being disqualified. And I got to be honest with you when I saw that kind of remind me when Kyle was disqualified in the Xfinity series and Texas and they gave that win to often centric. But I do want to talk about Denny Hamlin Ross Chastain. Since what happened in Pocono, you know, and this has been going on for quite some time in Ross has admitted what he did with what he did, you know, he made a mistake in the past couple of races, but Denny still, I

"Welcome into a Monday post Pocono edition of NASCAR America motor miles, Dale Jarrett the Hall of Famer Jeff Burton, the mayor Steve latte here. Listen, guys, lots to talk about. Let's get the fans calling in one 8 6 NASCAR NBC. One 8 6 6 NASCAR NBC. Pocono, a sleepy trip to Pocono, turned it into an exciting weekend erasing and the topics are truly endless. So much so, no guests today. There's so much to talk about. This could be a 5 hour show if we wanted it. So it's going to be a jam packed hour. Let's start at the top. Number one, Hamlin and Kyle Busch, d-q'd, the lead story after Sunday, finished first and second, the disqualified from the race, handing the win to chase Elliott who now has another win gaining more points. Hamlin, he's on the topic list again, contact with Ross Chastain sends him into the wall was a payback. Was it not? Turn three treacherous all weekend long and Pocono. That leads us to Kurt Busch and accident in turn three sits him out due to concussion symptoms. That puts ty Gibbs in the car. It looks like a river of conversations here. Ty Gibbs gets in the 45, does a great job after doing a great job on Saturday, 7 topics, one hour guys, we're gonna buzz to as many phone calls as we can. But to get started, you can't talk about penalties with somebody getting disqualified without bringing in the beat reporter. You gotta have the guys that have the facts, and we're gonna analyze them, but Dustin long has joined us Dustin, walk me through the last 24 hours of what we learned at Pocono and now what we know today. Yeah, so Steve, what looked to be a strong day for Joe Gibbs Racing turned into historic day for NASCAR with the less than two hours after the race when NASCAR officials who had stated before the season that they were going to stiff and penalties related to the next gen car found issues with the cars of the 11 of Denny Hamlin and the 18 of Kyle Busch. That led to NASCAR for the first time in 62 years, disqualifying a winner. And that led to chase Elliott being declared the winner yesterday. Now, Joe Gibbs Racing had the opportunity to file an appeal today, but that deadline passed without Joe Gibbs Racing, doing so. So in NASCAR's point of view, this matter is closed, the penalties have been assessed and they move on to Indianapolis. Now, Joe gives racing put out a statement this afternoon stating what led to the issue and stated that it was a single piece of clear tape that was positioned over each of the lower corners of the front fascia head of the left front and right front wheel openings on both cars. Now the added piece of tape that Joe gives racing stated was two inches wide, 5 and a half inches long with a thickness of .012 inches. And that's what led us to this situation where, again, for the first time since 1960, NASCAR has disqualified a winner. So yes, big news, first time I have a list of questions I think the fans want to talk about. Let's start with the what. He just mentioned a piece of tape. I'm going to read something right here. I have access to the rule book and I'm going to read it. And it's a simple as except in explicitly permitted rules, which this doesn't fall into. It's very simply. You can not install any additional parts, modifications to existing parts, to affect the aerodynamic properties of the vehicle. In my opinion, DJ, as silly as it may sound, it's only a piece of tape, but if you're not allowed to do anything, a piece of tape is something, especially underneath the vinyl, I don't have a real issue, whether there's a big modification or a small modification, any change was too much for me. Yeah, I mean, as you point out, teams aren't going to do something to make their car worse. So obviously it was going to be an advantage some way, shape, or form. No matter how small it is. I think that when you look at it, you start talking about does the penalty fit the crime here. With it not happening in 62 years, you're not been disqualified in another series before, but we won't get into all of that. But. Sending a message, maybe yes, I think the message had been sent before, but as we know, this is a competition and teams are always willing to do a little bit. This seems if you think about it in the scope

"It, you miss it big. So it never really worried me about the young guys old guys and stuff. You know, I raised enough with Kevin Harvick and I know my potential, obviously. That it was a matter of time. And it also, it's a matter of time for these organizations. It's very things not just going to run 15th every week and be okay with it. They're going to work really, really hard to get past that in hopefully we turn the corner this weekend on that. But yeah, there's a lot of good years and a lot of race wins left between me and when I finally hang it up. Hey dude, I got one last thing. We're going to let you go, but I know this was an era and a time when everybody wants to make a new T-shirt showing or about something. But I know that you've looked at this, but when you were passing William Byron there going down the back straightaway, they showed a camera shot and the anticipated that I saw in your eyes was unbelievable. I think that would be a great shot for a T-shirt. Yeah, just my bottom one. All right, I'll get with Bowman, see how I get that done. What about hack? Good job. Man. Denny yeah, congratulations. Congratulations. Thank you. Thanks, guys. See ya. All right, Denny Hamlin, joining us here on NASCAR America motormouth. It seems like a different guy after all when we win. Oh yeah, but you know, I mean, especially because as you pointed out, everything that was being said, and the whole Toyota camp was kind of taking a beating, not just Jill Gibbs Racing, but everybody involved. And the things. And you know these guys, they're talented enough, obviously, to continue to win, but when you bring something totally new and trying to figure all of that out, can be difficult at times. I don't care how long you've been doing. And listen, and I like that, like you said, I think he's in a different place. He's realistic. Yeah, it didn't turn him around. One race didn't turn around. What one race did, though, is whether he admits it or we admit it or anybody else's. There was a lot of background noise. And shut down a lot of that background noise. That shut down the over 40. That shutdown will deny win. That shut down, what's wrong with Toyota? At least it shuts it down for a little while, which allows them to focus and move forward. Yeah, when you drive for a team, you own your own team, that's a lot of background. That's a lot about it. And he put a lot of that to bed. So we've heard of thought of Denny Hamlin. Well, here are your thoughts, other side of the break when we.

"5 fastest cars at Las Vegas and took the same car capability, short of the setup and went to Vegas or out to Phoenix and none of us could run hardly 15. So this week's success does not guarantee that we are quote unquote back or we found it. I think it's going to be week to week until we come back to these tracks for a second time or we create a data point for each type of racetrack. It's still TBD. Well, Denny, as you know, another short track in Virginia coming up is Martinsville. And this is a show for the fans NASCAR American motor mouse, and I think we've got James on the line who'd like to ask you about Martinsville James. Go ahead with your question for Denny Hamlin. All right. I wanted to ask after when yesterday at Richmond once again, does that give you and your teammates at Joe gives racing more confidence going into Martinsville at Virginia once again next weekend? Well, one thing's for sure is that we were short on confidence after Phoenix. And that's attracted the closest correlation that we could bring to Richmond, which is kind of sad to say because they are so actually different, but that's how we set up our cars. We use a data point of saying, okay, that we ran, let's say we ran good at Phoenix, we go to Richmond, our setups should be this much different. Well, we all ran like crap at Phoenix, so we had to know information to go off, so we had to guess at Richmond..

Straight call gave her my pork up. Speechless man. Great job. Good job. Welcome to NASCAR America motor mounts. Nate Ryan here with Kyle Petty. Dale Jarrett, our resident NASCAR Hall of Famer, has been returned to Charlotte, North Carolina, DJ. Welcome back, what did you think of the race we just saw there in Richmond? Oh, thanks for having me back. And racing was outstanding. You know, I think every race this season has been really, really good. This one in a completely different way because strategies and the differing strategies that drivers and teams had made this just fascinating to watch and not knowing exactly what might happen. Yeah. Yeah, okay, so I'm going to go kind of a little. I didn't like the race. Because we had had 6 really good races. And we were talking about, we had 6 really good races where everybody raced race race. And then we have a strategy race, which is totally different. And you have to be so inside baseball to understand the strategies. I've seen writers that have written stuff in the last day or two. I've seen fans comments and they don't know what they saw. You know, they know Denny won the race and they won it on strategy and they know that Kevin was second, but they don't understand how it happens. And it's hard when the industry are people inside the industry don't even understand how it happens. But you, me, guys that are inside that understand it and you watch and you know what it's like to ride around out there on old tires and see the guy just lapping you on 20 lap fresher tires and you just got to stay out of the way. You understand what the game is and you understand once play in one game and once play in another game but there is a definite ending to both games and which one's gonna come out on top. And that as always as a Kyle Petty opinion. So we're gonna bring in somebody I know who did like oh yeah, he should have liked it. He should have loved Denny Hamlin the winner of yesterday's race at Richmond Raceway. Denny, first top ten of the season ends a 12 race winless streak personally for you and you do it in your hometown. How did it feel to be back in victory lane and Richmond? Good. But I want to address Kyle because I think he's got a point. I think he's, you know, in the sense of I think sometimes we have to do a better job of telling the story of what is going on, right? Now if you're in the stands, by all means, how can you figure out what's going on because everyone's going different speeds and all that stuff. So unless you've got a headset on and you're telling a story through the radio, which TV even had a tough time of, you know, they didn't even recognize that, oh my gosh, here's the chance somebody else could win other than the guys were just talking about. So the last 8 laps. So, you know, certainly if they couldn't figure it out unless you're a hardcore fan, but if you look at the ticker with 30 laps to go and all of a sudden we're laughed down and then wait a minute or 25 seconds, 2015 like you would say, okay, well there's something going on here that we're not talking about. So I think it can be confusing and how we can simplify that with just, you know, we've got to have everyone trying to tell the story of what is going on because I think that if you look at F one, it's 95% strategy, right? I mean, you've got a fast car, but they tell the story of what's going on and who's going to undercut who, but I know that's not anything like what you ask me. Sorry. But listen, listen, that is a great description. That is a great description by Danny on what goes on. In Formula One, they start from the very first lap, explaining the different strategies that are going to be out there. When this became a strategy race, then that's what needed to be explained because there were cars at one time Denny and Kevin and the 43 car. Eric Jones, were running 12, 13th, tenth, right along in there. Erik Jones and those guys choose one strategy and then up 25th, Danny and Kevin take another strategy, and there's a separation. And it happens in the race 200 laps into the race, 220 laps into the race. You should have seen it common or somebody should have seen it coming and explained it at that point. And I think I'm going to get to DJ here in a minute. I just want to bring you back in real quick, Danny. When you pitted on lap three 54, you were told then that it was probably going to be you versus Harvick, right? Yeah. It was all over the radio. He kept saying it. Keep the four behind you. We got a really good shot at winning. We're going to win. And so we knew it. I think a lot of people in pit road knew it, but how the casual fan in the stands would know it..

"Welcome to the NASCAR NBC podcast. I'm your host Nate Ryan and so glad to be joined for the first time this season by our resident Hall of Famer on NASCAR NBC Dale Jarrett, DJ. Welcome back to the show. Welcome back to Charlotte. Live in Phoenix full time. So good to see you here. Yeah, thank you. Glad to be back and always interesting to come back and catch up on things. I look at things from a different perspective sometimes whenever I'm away from everybody and kind of away from the scene a little bit and so I'm interested to see and hear about comments that people have to say in this part of the country because believe it or not, even when the race isn't in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area, there's a lot of fans out there that come up to me and talk about that. So what led to be back. So before we delve into the scene here, what's the scene been like in the Phoenix area where I presume you're playing a lot of golf these days, enjoying the weather. Yeah, yeah. I wish I were playing better, but the golf game is not very good, but I do play the weather is fantastic. Just really enjoying the time there. But fans are excited out there. As I think they are and showing us all over the country with what is happening. I will say that before the season started as people ask me my opinion of the new car. I was very hesitant because I really wasn't sure what may come of this and how it may perform. But I've been more than pleasantly surprised with how the competition has been. So people are recognizing that even fans that I'll call more casual fans that they're excited about what they've seen to this point and what may come as the drivers and teams get more custom with these cars. Definitely want to get into the new car in the next gen discussion with you DJ and we were just talking about before we got started here. That enthusiasm and the good racing that they've had this year and certainly that was evident on Sunday at Richmond Raceway and definitely want to talk about that on the NASCAR NBC podcast with you here today and I want to start DJ with the way the race unfolded was interesting and that you had these long green flag runs. You had the caution breaks, but it came down to essentially divergent strategies where Denny Hamlin makes an extra pit stop in the final hundred laps William Byron tries to stretch it. And it works out that Hamlin's strategy is better. What did you make about just how the whole 100 final laps unfolded and how you think the drivers handled it. Because if you're in the position of William Byron or Mark trex junior and you're being asked to stretch, I'm sure it's much different than Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick, where you've got tires that were almost 50 laps fresher. Yeah. And so let's start there in the fact that as a driver with fresher tires, very seldom are where they put in a position where there were cars that were faster than them that was costing them time, whereas if you were William Byron and many others Martin Truex Junior who were the first two there, they were having to not only worry about racing each other, but pay attention to faster cars coming at them and a lot of times cars that hadn't been faster than at any point in time during the race, but because they had these new tires. And so that's costing you time on the racetrack. And so trying to figure what you're doing at that particular time and what you need to be doing is way more difficult than what Danny and Kevin Harvick were going through and the way the situation they were put in by their teams with this strategy because they're always moving forward. They're being the aggressors and making passes where the other drives are just kind of hanging on and trying to get the most out of it and trying to win the race at the same time. So fascinating to watch. Interesting that a couple of teams changed their strategy kind of midstream in the race. And I don't even know if it was midstream. It might have been three quarter stream into this race that they opted out of a similar strategy that Denny and Kevin employed later in the race that put them first and second. So I would have to think that some of them might look back and as we go to other races that may be similar and certainly as we go back to Richmond the next time that they'll be looking at things a lot differently. William Byron made his last pit stop with 89 laps to go and again, he had enough fuel. He had enough tire to a degree to get to the end, it was just going to be a matter, could he maintain the pace and ultimately he couldn't. So you've been in that situation DJ in terms of you've started hundreds of cup races. I'm sure you've been in this situation before that he's in. Did you know watching that at some point, okay, sorry about the 24 is dead in the water here. Strategy is not going to work. Yeah. I mean, you have that idea, but I'll have to say that there was a lot going on. And so I'm not just going to fault Fox in the commentators there for not picking up on Danny and Kevin a little bit sooner to get their progression through the field because I felt like that we were kind of led to believe in what we could see on TV that this was going to be a battle between could William Byron hold off Martin Truex Junior for the biggest part of that last run. And let's say the last 25 or 30 laps that we could see that Truex was gaining and they were mentioning that. But we weren't talking about and weren't being told about Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick slicing through the field at that point in time. Yeah, but there was so much other stuff going on. You had Larsen who was making an appearance up into the top 5 for Canada the first time yesterday and so you had to pay attention was he's going to be able to pull this off among others. So it's so hard when you're there own tires that are much older than many of the cars. And again, sometimes you're letting cars go or having to race around others that you aren't necessarily haven't been accustomed to during that particular race or even many other times during other races. And so you're not exactly sure what to expect from them because they're so much faster and how are they going to handle this situation? Where are they going to go and how much room do you need to give them? So your focus is lost on trying to make your best lap time sometime and exactly where you need to be. And that's the difficult part of employing that strategy. You just hope that you've built up enough to give yourself the opportunity at the end. And certainly sounds like all the things you got going on there, it would favor somebody with experience of veteran and we see the top two finishers are two guys. Over 40, Denny Hamlin, and Kevin Harvick, 47th victory, and his career for Denny Hamlin first and 12 races. It ends a streak of 12 consecutive winners under the age of 30. And it also was Denny Hamlin's first top ten of 2022. And I believe Kevin Harvick's first top 5. What do you make of all that? I mean, 6 races into the cup season. Did you think that Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick would be without a top 5 and then to see them finish one two at Richmond? Yeah, you wouldn't think that even with the new car and the adjustments as a driver. And even as veteran drivers because these guys are so talented, you just have to imagine that they're going to adapt pretty quickly to any changes, but we can see it has been a struggle. And I won't say that even though they finished first and second, that were they necessarily a top 5 car all day long.

"denny hamlin" Discussed on NASCAR on NBC
"Going to have you give me an early prediction. Who do you think the champion is this year? I think Denny Hamlin, he breaks the streak. He becomes a champion, 46 wins as too many in the career without the big trophy. Chase Elliott's gonna repeat. I really do. I go to Denny Hamlin, I agree with Steve's top Denny Hamlin winner championship. We didn't get a chance here from DJ and KP. So who knows? Maybe one of them would depict cow Larsen. But is the guy with 9 wins? Maybe not top of mind for you and others because this is his first appearance versus the other three guys being returned championship four drivers. So I think as an analyst, my job is to look a little bit past the easiest pick, which is larger because he's one 9 races. But when saying that, it's because he himself has had set on occasions about how the chili bowl kind of got in his head a little bit. And his early cup years kind of got in his head. So he's done nothing this year to prove to me that that's an issue at all. But this is nothing like he's ever done. I'm sorry. It's just not. Now he could go there and lead every single lap. And I'd be like, yeah, not a shock. He's been that good all year long. I would have the same lack of surprise if he went there and was surprisingly mediocre. The third best of the four all day long. I know he's not gonna run tenth, right? But if he goes and runs third, and just say that he's learning so much, absorbing so much so quick. I mean, I'm willing to say Kyle arsen, oh, he's going to be a champion. There's no doubt. I just don't know if it's going to be 2021 or not. And I only go off his comma. You've heard him like he's like, yeah, the chili bowl kind of this, and I had to learn how to manage some of those final restarts and I equate that to what chase said. He's willing to say, I'm wiser. I've been there. Look forward to these opportunities. Like, you know, he's embracing the moment. Maybe a little bit more than I think Larson. I don't know. He's probably have a Kyle is that he reminds me a little of Jimmy, which is, I'm fortunate enough to know Kyle on and off the racetrack. And whether he's lining up for speed 51 at millbridge or on the grid for Martinsville, anything in between is literally the same guy. So that's where I'm like, okay, well then I didn't see what he was referencing. That some of these races kind of got into his head. So the fact that I couldn't read his cards, he's a great poker player, so I don't know. I don't know if the spot's going to be. I don't want to say it's too big. That's not the point. But will it feel different? Will there be small things he does differently or will he literally just strap the helmet on like he always does and goes and wins? Well, I think I'm gonna look it up right now. I believe he was the worst of the championship drivers in terms of finish. I think he was like 7th. The first time to Phoenix this year, all four of these guys, I believe we're in the top ten. Yes, Martin Turks junior one, ham one third, chase Elliot 5th, Kyle Larson 7th. And Keselowski was saying this week that because of the parts freeze because of the last year, the gen 6, he thinks that this Phoenix race could be a lot like the first Phoenix race. And is that a negative do you think for Cal Larsen that he wasn't as good as the other three guys the first time? Martinsville didn't look the same. Same parts freeze. I don't buy the whole parts for each thing. Yeah, you think. Everybody tells me it's frozen, but the key building brand new cars. Some don't add up. Like, yes, there are parts you can't improve on. Yeah. There's a lot of parts you can. Like, I think people don't understand how crew chiefs work. If you say, you can't touch your phone. Okay. What could I Bluetooth into it? When you say touch, like not allowed to touch the screen, could I tell Nate to touch? Could they read the rules like a lawyer? What if I touch the notebook underneath my phone on my phone moved? Yeah. Now did I cause my phone to move? So this part's free. Look, I don't think anyone's cheating. But if they think they all just went up, parts of frozen. Let's just go to the racetrack. No. That hasn't been 600 employees over here. Go back. Parts of frozen. Yeah. No. No way. Don't buy it. Just because Martin Truex Junior won the first race of Phoenix, does that mean he is necessarily overwhelming favor? Unless you're the Martin trex junior fan, that's what I hang my head on. Yeah. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it's true. You tell me who you want to support, and I can tell you why they should win and how they could lose. Isn't that what we should all hope? Nobody wants a 40 point favorite in the Super Bowl. Like, man, let's line them up. We start with Denny Hamlin, let's end with Denny Hamlin. Speaking of mindset, we're a driver is right now. Hamlin had some tweets last night that indicated, it sounds like he's already passed Martinsville he doesn't care to build things. He's more ready to win this thing than ever. His team's been ready to win this thing than ever..

"That spot. Now we see non playoff drivers there. Dale junior and I won, there's a non playoff driver. But we were never in a position to never race anybody where we had to contend the spot. We had a little new tires by Tony Stewart. Matter of fact, Dylan, I had this conversation on the ride home. Jeff Gordon was closing. And Dale said, one reason why I went by Tony with such force. By flaming by the way, is because I knew my teammate. Needed to win this race to advance. And if he got to my bumper and moved me, I had no recourse. I knew he didn't say if he passed me. He said, if he got to my left rear and sent me up the racetrack with two to go with the playoffs on the line, he was like, yeah, what's Rick gonna say? He's like, that man, he's in the playoffs. He's trying to move forward, like, you were the guy he had to get around? Like that would have been, quote, acceptable. So we raced knowing he can not get to our left rear. Flip that, right? Now, a non playoff guy drove with such tenacity to win a race, not his first career win, not as first of the year. His fourth win of the year, I don't want to discount the specialness of a win because it's huge. And I want them to race for wins. But that's the question in my mind. He drove so far into the corner that he lost control of his vehicle and wrecked a playoff guy. I'm confident Alex Bowman didn't know if he was good on points or not good on points, like he didn't know any of that. Now fortunately for Denny Hamlin, he was, but what happens if he wasn't? One happened if that would have been the move that limited for playoffs, would people have a different view? Same action different result when people have a different opinion. Those are all the things I question, right? There's a lot that goes into these decisions. Well, Alex Bowman felt as if he was justified because ham wanted taken him out at Texas the previous year and apologized for it. So he's like, hey, the shoe's already been on the other foot. And he also felt because the lab four 78 restart, Bowman took the lead after getting into him a little bit. And then just you guys said on the broadcast, I think, Burton was like, oh my God, he's getting over. He was Dale junior said it just he'd pulled out of the way and let Denny.

"And he still can't drive. We got him. We do what we had to do, but like I just wanted to race there at the end and just, you know, he's just terrible. You know, we talk about all the time. We want drivers to show their emotion. Obviously, Denny Hamlin was very displeased, showed his emotion after that race by preventing Alex Bowman from doing his victory burnout. Were you okay with what you saw from Denny Hamlin? I didn't love the altercation on the front stretch for more than the reasons I think everybody assumes. It's not so a little bit is, I believe, hey, the winner is the winner, and you have to kind of respect whether you completely disagree with how he got there. It's kind of this moment that the person has earned per the NASCAR rule book. They claim human as a winner. The second part of perhaps more importantly for me is I think his actions in the race car diminished his actions in front of the microphone. And I believe that Denny, when he got out and said what he said about Alex, I actually don't feel that was a motion fueled. I think that was a calculated Denny Hamlin, giving your opinion about another race car driver he drives with that in Denny's opinion. He isn't as talented as his teammates, which is amazing, thinking he has four wins this year, but I'm just going off what Denny said. Me reading Denny's comments. He doesn't feel he's as good that he felt like he got wrapped not on purpose, but it felt like he got wrecked because the guy didn't have enough talent to not reckon. I mean, that's kind of how I read his comments, right? It's a hack job. That isn't, you know, that jerk wrecked me. That's not what he said. He said it's a hack job, which basically, you know, if me and you or golfers and I say you're a hack, that means you're not any good. Man, don't play with Nate. He's a hack. He can't hit the golf ball. It's not fun. When you call someone a hack, that tells me that you say you don't have the talent to try to do or to justify what you're trying to do. Those are the words that I expect Danny. That's how I take what he was trying to tell me. The problem is, after the shenanigans on the front stretch, I'm kind of like, does people rather even listening to what he has to say? Right. That's why I wish that wouldn't go on. I wish it was done because I love sports. I love rivalries and I love disagreement and we don't have to agree on which side we're on, and I think he has every right to say whatever he wanted to do and you can liken boo cheer. That's not the point. He has every right to say it and I think that was diminished because of what happened on the front. So you love the emotion, just save the emotion for just the interview. Don't necessarily do it in the front stretch and unconventional. I'm going to stop your burnout stop your celebrations. Yeah, I mean, there's a lot that goes into it, right? And there's a burnout interview. There's people in the front stretch. I'm not gonna defend any of it. I've never been a race car driver, so I don't know what it's like to sit in there and how they see this car as an extension of themselves and they feel it's fine to put this whatever. That's their business. I Denny Hamlin in his race car on the front stretch is Denny Hamlin, the race car driver. Danny Hamlin out with his helmet off camera in front of him, face on screen is a NASCAR superstar. The fan can relate to the driver they can see. The fan can't relate to the guy behind the wheel. So I think for the good of the sport and for the good of the fans, get out and say it. It's kind of like sometimes I feel like drivers behind the wheel are kind of like people behind a keyboard. It's a lot easier because you've got a helmet on in your hidden. When you're willing to take all that comfort away and double down on your comments, those resonate more with me. So let's talk about what Hamlin said and ask, I want to frame this in the most respectful way possible to Alex Bowman, but ask if Denny Hamlin has a point. And what I mean by that is I'm not saying Alex Bowman didn't deserve to win this race. He had a very fast car. He put himself in position to win it. But a lot of people I saw on social media were asking, you know, why didn't Denny Hamlin just allow him more room? And I think Jenny Hamlin's answer is I did allow him more room. Like I was watching the replays this morning, it looked like he gave him a lane, maybe lane and a half for a few laps there, and then when Alex Bowman made the move, he couldn't hold the bottom, he slid up and he took out the 11. Does Denny Hamlin have a point to some degree that Alex Bowman didn't make the past the way a driver should make that pass? So he didn't. And I don't think he made the past the way he intended to make the pass. So yeah, he did say that it wasn't until my analysis of what I saw on the racetrack as a guy who's never driven Martinsville, but watched, we'll call it tens of thousands of laps there. Denny Hamlin races Martinsville with the scalpel. Pre calculated what he does and where he puts his car. Reminds me a lot of Jeff Gordon, who I was fortunate enough to win there. I've seen him do it. I believe that Danny gave Alex Bowman an ample amount of room to race with reasonable contact for a race win. I think Alex Bowman lap after lap after lab was unable to make the pass and eventually purely a mistake that over the limit of his car under braking, car gets loose. You have to turn right and that carries them up into Denny. He spends Dany out. So it's really, I don't think there's a debate on what happened. The debate is, is it okay for a non playoff driver? To take his car to such a limit that he can cross over and rec a playoff guy or any driver for that matter. Where is good hard racing? Is it, you know, like he didn't hit him in the rear bumper. He didn't reckon. On purpose, but he recked him. So it wasn't malicious, but does it make a difference? If the result's the same, I mean, that's really the question. Everybody has come up with their own answer. I don't have an opinion on it. I mean, it's fascinating to me. I believe in my heart 5 years ago, a non playoff driver does not contend that spot. Now we see non playoff drivers there. Dale junior and I won, there's a non playoff driver. But we were never in a position to never race anybody where we had to contend the spot. We had a little new tires by Tony Stewart. Matter of fact, Dylan, I had this conversation on the ride home. Jeff Gordon was closing. And Dale said, one reason why I went by Tony with such force. By flaming.
Bowman wins as tension builds ahead of NASCAR title race
"Alex Bowman celebrated in Martinsville's victory lane while three others advance to the championship for having a shot at the title in Phoenix Denny Hamlin Martin Truex junior and chase Elliott joined Kyle Larson who locked himself in two weeks ago Bowman's win with his fourth of the season and his first at Martinsville in twelve tries which we're going to Phoenix obviously with a chance to win a championship and has been painful to kind of go through the playoffs where they've banned but it's awesome at least you know start to end the year on a on a strong note the final four features two drivers each from Hendrick motor sports and Joe Gibbs racing Stever **** Martinsville Virginia

"denny hamlin" Discussed on NASCAR on NBC
"I had no reason to reckon. So he was continuing to raise hamlin for the lead after he cut turned to nascar has said that they're going to review the radio communications to see how the information was relayed from spotter to driver because dell junior said it on our broadcast before they reach. Turn seven that chase briscoe is gonna stop and go here so curcio perspective did. Did someone air here in terms of the team relaying. The information you buy the chase briscoe didn't know what's going on here. I put this one on chase so if he would have gone down in their cooked it a little hot and miss track limits by two feet had the wrong tyres on the wrong side of curb. I don't want to get into the details of it. Mr by two feet and didn't know. Then how would he have known. It was really close. Maybe you should've known the mainland. Mario kart through the grass. So i i think while we get to the curbing and all the track limits indianapolis motor speedway could needs to look at that. There shouldn't be a physical opportunity for a driver to shortcut. The course my point being. I'm okay that there's runoff. And i'm okay. The he had grass. But i would like to see some offset tire packs. Not that he's going to run into some nice branding on there that he has to slow down and s around therefore he can't pop out on the other side next to denny hamlin. He's gonna pop out on the other side and like fifteen hundred twentieth then. We don't have to have stop and go right so if you say you missed turn one and you go straight. There is an access road that allows you to come back to turn to with no stop-and-go you don't have to stop because for u. s. around that road nascar because we know you're gonna lose ten or twenty spots. We're not worried about same thing for turn twelve. So he was a no-man's-land right. He didn't just miss the curb and and he didn't do the access road. He went straight through the grass. Yeah i mean you can't shortcut it that much. In my opinion i would love to hear the radios. Well i've yet to hear it. I don't know who spots for briscoe at that end of the race track because it can be complicated multiple spotters. But i think chase briscoe. I think it's a little naive to think that he had to wait for someone to tell him that he pushed it too far. I do believe as we continue. I don't blame me. I would have never said it before but now that we've seen this. I think we should react to it. I'd like to see a couple of offsetting tire barriers. Or i don't even care if it's promotional sign something that forces the guy. When he gets down in the grass he had to like slowdown. Turn left turn right. Rejoined the field. Then way we don't have to worry about stopping goes like every comes back on the track hammer down good to go because he was able to just slide pretty much right through the grass. I mean obviously lifted off a little bit but you right. i am. One shouldn't be out somewhere tenth fifteenth. We don't have to worry about stop and goes let's let's make track limits only when you barely miss it. There shouldn't be an opportunity for literally to go straight to the team. Bear any responsibility and making sure the driver knows the penalty and that sort of i mean they're very chief that spot or all of those do crew. Chief is going to be watching on tv because he can't see it down there but you know it's chaotic on the radio. I mean someone should have informed him on the long back. Stretch is six eight seconds of wide open throttle that you're going to have the penalty. We're going to serve panel. We're going to have server penalty in the end. I mean the race car driver needs to know where the track limits are like. I think it should have been clear that he had i mean even danny was kind of like come on man. You didn't think that was a penalty. Seems a little bit impossible. And then then then so say i'll go on further. I'm kind of at odds with him. Wrecking hitting denny hamlin square in the bumper. Even if he was going for the win his words after the race for something about turn ten guys leaving the door open that's denny block left right. That was that was chasing explanation. Was well guys. We're kind of getting lazy off that corner. And i thought i could slide in or them just break out brigham. But yeah you watch congratulations. You didn't get lazy. So i ran you over watched the video and it's like well didn't he didn't leave you an opening so you hit the brakes chase and i know how much it means to them or whatever but you know i was the guy that was on the tv call. When tigers gibbs one watkins glen. And i was so happy the way he did it. I'm sorry like chased. Didn't drive in there and run over his fender him in the door. He hit him in the bumper cover. He powder he just spent him out. He just clearly spun him out whether it was militias on purpose doesn't matter he's still spun out. I was shocked at how danny handled it. It's funny though. Because as he was talking all i saw was him dumping chase elliott at martinsville in my head. I just kept seeing it. And that's like i love it. I can't wait to talk to anybody that what you were thinking about what you said. I've been on both sides of this chasing they're going. You wrecked me and which me right so i was amazed at how he handled it. But i i. I like chase so it's hard to like. Call him out. Yeah you got me man. I got nothing for you. You went straight through the grass. You shouldn't was a penalty one too. I don't put the onus on the team at the spa you went straight through the grass miss feet. And then you hit the guy square in the bumper in your rectum. So he's a rookie. Chuck up learning experience. Which is too bad because now listen. I'm okay with the move but let's not make it sound like he just missed a corner. I mean ran him off track. But that's but that's what happens when you're on the outside going to try and restart right the leader you sort of have that prerogative to receive issue. Yeah let's talk about any firm and now you bring that up. I saw a lot of that on social. That people were impressed with the way the composure. He showed the classy show the way he handled it. I think a lot of people thought this was a fistfight. And it wasn't i mean. Denny made his point very firmly. You're in the wrong but he didn't necessarily raise his voice too much didn't get animated. He just let it play out. Is that aside denny. Hamlin that maybe we don't see years ago because now he's the team owner. I i do think that all has to do with it. He's now in a lot. More meetings ever been in from all the different hats he wears and he's vocal in the garage. Area has every right to be right. He's a superstar. I hope that there's a second conversation right because it happened at pit road probably had to happen now like shirley. We're not just gonna go drop the green at michigan right. Like if i'm chase. I reach probably backout thursday friday and be like hey man. I went back and reviewed it back and watched it. Here's my opinion. Now because danny got to be denny because i don't know who the veterans were when he came in i'd have to go. Look bobby labonte. Probably dale jarrett's whoever's well now he's those guys in goes great. He's going to be there for a long time right. So so i i liked the fact. That danny doesn't need another enemy in this world. So what does he do. Stop down what. What does that do for him. I mean nothing changes the thing. So you're right. I mean it's de hamlin was rookie in two thousand six. This'll be the sixteenth season. The cup series new year right like the guys. Jeff gordon dale jarrett. Those guys stole would have been around. Probably molding him at that. Point in an indirect way tony stewart is obviously yeah interesting thought there so it felt like two races stevie the i seventy five laps or so were terrific. I thought this road course you know we were talking before we taping this as you put. It was beautiful in terms of layout had everything. Yeah the the way. It's sort of engendered. Some really strong racing. You guys spin out you guys lean. You didn't have full.
