"The teams were able to adjust their personnel at the race track in their way of operating, and and it's It's been a great comeback. We've seen some really good racing in all three series that at a couple of different race tracks. Now we're getting into. You know some short tracks at Bristol past weekend Atlanta Homestead Talladega, so we're kinda getting rolling again to. To where we can see who's got some really good speed in the race cars, who looks to be strong for more wins in the summer months, but I think it's a big Kudos to Nascar the team to end the racetrack said Fox or making some adjustments to to get these cars back on the track, and they've really done it not any issues. One of the things that. Struck me about. It is NASCAR and maybe golf to a lesser extent had a built in advantage in the competitors don't necessarily have direct physical contact like they would and football or basketball, or or even baseball there a little bit closer, but you get the point I'm trying to make. There was something there that they could work with and build on working with the state, local officials and everybody that I've talked to and I'm sure you have talked to many as well has commented on the the care and the I guess strictness is the right word to make sure that they'd get this done the proper way in the correct way and nobody in jeopardy. y'All have one opportunity to make that. First Impression Nascar knew that they were going to be you know on the stage. The center stage with all the lights on with a lot of people watch on, not only from a fan perspective, but other sports leagues. You know the different you know media outlets on how to cover some of these sporting events, so yeah I, think they've. They've done a nice job, they they don't seem to have missed out on anything. They've made the necessary adjustments to what a normal weekend would look like that once the green flag drops, it still looks pretty normal. without fans in the stands is is different, but really the racing on track has been as good as what we all hope for so hopefully this will. Be the first step and getting back to what what a new normal may look like in the world of sports, a lot of the things that we're seeing now have kind of been batted around for a while in terms of some week races, which were about to see at Martinsville, and we've already seen at Darlington in. you know a little bit shorter races less practice. Do you think Nascar being kind of pushed to try these things? Maybe earlier than they would have will open some eyes and people will say you know what maybe this is a good idea. Maybe there's some things here. We can keep moving forward. Will this was a perfect opportunity to try some of these things you know you always want to calculate when you make a new rule, change or new adjustment you WanNa do it in the best interest of the sport, and so this is almost like a Freebie. You know if you mess up, or it doesn't go well, then you can't move back to what was good so I think. Think that the Oh covid nineteen pandemic in some of the The bigger things that are going on, it may get NASCAR kind of like an extra inning to say hey, you know. Let's try some of these new. No practices maybe a line of like this week. Grace like this and see how it goes. You've been with some of the bigger organizations in some of the smaller organizations. Can you help folks understand what a what a big deal it is from a cost perspective for teams to not have to worry about practice in the extra tires and the extra expensive flights and hotel rooms, and all that stuff for for some of the smaller teams. That's huge, isn't it? Yeah? It was important to just get back on the racetrack and and get racing. A lot of these teams have a lot of revenue that comes from the the purse and the winnings at they get on race track, and so you know you're talking hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of a few races in so once they get that revenue stream back in. You know they can continue things. Things on on their side, but yes, to the point of practice and qualifying, you have to be prepared for an engine change. In case you have a problem. You have to bring an extra r race car as you have an issue in practice, offering, extra years, extra tools, and so yes, that does say the team's not only a lot of expenses at the track, but but in preparing as well. It costs money and time to to bring that equipment to the shop and to get it ready to change it out between. NASCAR did a good job in the teams are so well prepared with the technology that we have at our fingertips. They're setting these cars up. Really really close. been surprised at how close the cars have been. You've seen some adjustments here and are in a little bit of Goers incomer Strada race, but in general the cars that you expect to be fast still been up front the guys in the middle of the packers, still in the middle of the pack so I think it's. It's really amazing that these teams are that sharp and smart to prepare car with no practice qualifying at the. The track and be pretty close. Good is still going to be good. They don't forget how to be good. It's just a matter of of making it work in this new reality that we're facing David. Let's talk a little more specifically about Atlanta this weekend. All three series are going to be an action. They're very rough. ABRASIVE surface It's something where you have to plan and prepare to kind of save your car to manage it through Iran. Talk to me a little bit about what kind of racing we can expect to see generically speaking across the series because that's a tough track. Is Atlanta's double equipment a mentally. It's tough. You've got a search for grip. You've gotta search around the race track to suit. Your car's handling, so you don't run the same lap lap after lap after lap. You're constantly running all over the race track surface and a lot of times depending on who you're racing, you just run were they're not trying to some clean air? It's still very fast. It'll be a different challenge. We've had racing Atlanta. The last several years the second race of the year, so it's always been that last weekend in February or the first weekend in.

"What makes it so interesting as as a as as a leader at a road course it's really hard to keep pace and the reigning series champion brett mapa fighting off the teenager. Turn one because the guys behind you whenever you you break tripling further here's the laid back wide turnover five and they're going to gain on you on corner entry when you're in the lead of the race and try not to overdrive asleep. Don't make a mistake. You tend to tend to underdrive it and let the guy catch you do. I think we keep seeing all those last lap wrecks and and whatnot but <hes> so they can sing as i mean if if they're gonna wreck. I hope i'm third but if not i hope i'm leaving by enough to where you know. Someone can't catch me or it's someone behind me. That has a little more respect and it's not just gonna wreck me for a win for your sake and our sake. Let's hope we get another crazy finish this weekend. The xfinity series isn't leaving being the country. They're actually headed to wisconsin to race at road america this weekend. This'll be the third road course the xfinity series drivers have had in the last four weeks and some drivers like christopher. Good for bill are glad to be done with them. Thank god well. We were good at road america last year. I think i qualified in the top five and was going to finish off five until we got wreck there at the end so <hes> the road course steele has been good to us over the last couple of weeks. We've stayed out of trouble and been fairly competitive so <hes> just got to keep that up while austin syndrich has won the two other road courses this season those being at watkins glen and mid ohio e._p._l.'s at road america. He's missed opportunities. I've actually done that race two times with this group so so looking forward to being able to go back and try and put it together. I think we've we've kind of missed out on two shots to win that race in in the past couple of years one having a tire issue and the other one. You know blowing a motor roy in the lead so i'm looking forward to that. I think we have a little bit unfinished business the same kind of deal. You've got to be at the end. I think those races look a lot different at the end of it and it depends on whether it's going to be a long running short run. You gotta be good on restarts and there's a lot of different things you gotta look forward that track and i'm i'm looking forward to it. Obviously we've been really a good so far on the road courses but like i said it brings different challenges on every racetracks bristol winter tyler rhetoric is leaving the strategy to his crew chief and just looking to steer clear the wrecks of you asked me <hes> beginning of this year.

"This is nascar live now back to mike bagley. Welcome back to nascar live. It is indeed wrote horsfield weekend. Outdoors truck series headed north of the border to canadian tire motorsport park and then ask our xfinity series tackling road america in wisconsin. There've been some wild finishes at canadian tire and we asked some of the drivers why they think going over the border ramps up the aggression and david check cole accuster the law they pulled stay on the frontal and atlas stripe. It looks like jon huntsman. Check whole cluster make it as on the track tasting john nemechek. He tackled him right at at the end of the start finish. Line drivers are scrambling around crews jumping and trying to take care of it so it's crazy the the the the quick right left right you know coming into the start. Finish line allows the guy at second to just kind of really line up the leader knock knock him out of the way you know it gives you that chance and if you didn't get him in the first one you've got a second chance and by the third third time now i think everybody's eyeballs you know really really big and they got here's my shot and then it goes crazy checkered flag <hes> which has been exciting <hes> an it's wild and and all the great canadian race fans. That'll be there to support us. It's so cool to go home. I grew up only about an hour and a half away from from bowmanville. Thanks leader. Kim must be some in the water. They're all that tim hortons franken. I think i think we go out there and we overload on tim hortons. You remember that race. I believe i don't the two thousand fourteen. I believe it was ri- blaney. Herman kroeger ryan blaney leads kuroda kuroda to the drivers right puts the block on our spotting in turn to for blaming that take that was the only time that two trucks finished without touching each other coming into the line swapping the position. The promotion had the lead in the final corner messed up a little bit. He makes the path draft. He's got the lead author ted here comes planing again charging up to the end side side by side across the line and ryan fleet pete combs victory and there wasn't a scratch on either truck. All i said was good luck and at the end i said cleared and that was it i mean i barely said anything all day but it does put on perspectives the fact that i've been up there with no job no i had no race car driving duties at that time like i was. I just got fired and i haven't found anything else yet so a miracle win for the farmer lord justice. It's pretty humbling to think back about that now and then now fast forward to now now we're going to go up there with a chance to win the race which is absolutely incredible but we're building towards a championship like that's really cool wrapping around the outside the i think i think a lot of the driver a lot of people like when cross-border leave our brains and the u._s. and we decided to run all over each other and i i've been in i've been to some of the canadian not just canadian motorsport park. I went and raced late. Model up in canada. Three years in a row are raised at four ears and they literally every one of the races i've ever been to they race outfight. It's it is it is the most what's the mazing thing to watch and they have great rates senate. They're great fans and then it's like okay. Who's gonna fight now every year. It's like huck. Finn is a lot of those guys. I guess he's he's play hockey or something. They say okay well. I didn't win night and kick me off. I'm gonna fight now tight dillon with the lead chase elliott all over the tailgate. He gets into ferns dylan off turn number ten elliott elliott will take the checkered flag. I think what makes it so interesting as as a as as a leader at a road course it's really hard to keep pace and the reigning series champion brett mapa fighting off the teenager. Turn one because the guys behind you whenever you you break tripling further here's the laid back wide.

"Are in and they will be using the PJ one for the first time at Pocono on the tricky triangle and remember next season they'll run a NASCAR monster energy Cup series double header weekend evoking a looking forward to that and I think I think that's a grand experiment Marcon depending how that works might see more that in the future I'd I'd I applaud NASCAR for doing that I think that it's going to take some innovative thinking because I think in the long run like to see this season the shorter I'm not saying less racist but condense the season down and that's a good way to do it after going to the garage area after an extended stay there David Ragan is coming back out on to the racetrack and he'll be scored thirty nine laps down it's gonna be tough to have really I gotta get back in the car it's a hundred and forty degrees in there and I'm gonna go back out and fight for a spot when I'm thirty nine laps down and I just got cool I mean now you gotta get all heated up back up again if that's a tough break for David rake because he ran pretty strong early on dog had a chance for top fifteen that's the kind of stuff to front row motorsports is aiming for in Michael McDowell still running eighteenth he's better pretty strong afternoon in that front row motor sports cars well what's in the race leader Denny Hamlin continue to pull away from that second place running car here goes Hammond he'll go across the granite stripe you got away along there is Ryan Blaney thing cans Laskin Harvick two and a half seconds the advantage here for Denny Hamlin so Denny Hamlin now he goes by the lab when how falso Austin Dillon who had problems earlier brought out a couple of caution flags he moves over for Denny Hamlin so Hamlin right now chopping through traffic Doug that car whether he has to go to the bottom or go to the top it just gets a good run through the center a good run off alright here we go as far as self winding this one down with only forty nine laps to go and mark I think it's going to come down to keep it stops I don't know if they bought enough time with those two quick cautions to go to the finish I think that's going to be a big difference maker it's going to be tight it'll be a close perhaps on fuel but we did get word from our o'reilly auto parts per reporters most of the teams thought they could get their from where we had our last caution flag will get an update from those guys maybe they can double check that to make sure that is truly our situation here as they complete lap to fifty five that leaves forty six laps to go here on the magic mile not a lot of racing left here in Loudon New Hampshire as we are on land two fifty four as mark just told you it's the Denny Hamlin show for the moment nobody showed that they got anything for him Ryan Blaney resting back in second although he did pick up for tents as Hammond had to navigate a little bit traffic and we just got an update from our o'reilly auto parts for reporters they are confirming all the top teams teams on the lead lap that pitted the last yellow flag have enough sin OQO fuel to make it to the end of the race well it's a big game changer now can anybody run down Denny Hamlin Ryan Blaney picked up the pace just a little bit but I still think that most of that was probably due to lap traffic that Hammond had doing cameras were watching him with exit for and now there is Ryan Blaney so we'll give you the split here before we go down to our pit reporter Steve Richards is Hammond flashes across the stripe here comes Ryan Blaney and the differential is two point three seconds over to Steve bridge.
