The FBI Is Trying to Stamp Out Truth-Telling Whistleblowers

"You know you're in a living in a weird time and a distorted phase of the culture when you can see in the media, all kinds of people bashing FBI whistleblowers. I mean, did you think you'd live to see this? You'd have FBI whistleblowers. Who are telling what's going on on the inside of this top police agency. And the media is beating up, not on the FBI. But on the whistleblowers. Wow. So we've come a long way since the 1960s when the there were all these left wing investigations of the FBI of the CIA, whistleblowers were hailed as heroes. They were brought forward. They were treated as truth tellers, which in many cases, of course they are. And I want to focus on one of those FBI, a real hero, but someone who's not getting the hero's treatment. So this is a guy named Steve friend. He's an FBI special agent. And this guy noticed that something funny was going on in the FBI. I mean, he could see it in the cases that he dealt with directly. He's a 12 year veteran of the FBI, he's a S.W.A.T. team member. And he has been suspended, stripped of his gun and badge, escorted out of the FBI office in Daytona Beach for what? Basically for blowing the whistle on the FBI. Now, let's look at why Steve friend is taking such a risk. He's taking a risk of basically blowing up his career, a career that is meant a lot to him. He's the father of two small children, and as I mentioned, he's been over a decade with the FBI. So why would he do that? Well, the reason he's doing it is because he is showing giving direct firsthand information about how this agency has gone rogue.

"Going on all you find listeners of the final app quickly podcast. I am rowdy dragon. I'm back again with this week's final app weekly fantasy update. Well, that was probably the best road course, run of the season. We got to watch a little rain action and dry action. Out there on the road course. Let's take a look and see who dominated the stages at Watkins Glenn. For the first stage you got Rocco rocks. So I can stage goes to darkwing mcquack. And your winner, Elliot bandwagon. Comes home with 231 points and 30 stage points. Just beating out rowdy dragon by one point. I finished in the second spot. At Elliott not falling back. I was sitting in the catbird seat, but I'll take P two, which moves me up to the 8th position in the overall rankings. Toby Christie, another rough week. Since he finished back in the 113th spot, I couldn't see what his lineup looked like. Don't know if he forgot yet again or if it was just a bad date. Silly season gets kind of busy over there at Toby Christie dot com. Tobias slipped down to the 80th spot on the overall standings. Harry Murphy, whereas Jimmy had a good run this weekend as well. Finishing in the 29th spot, pulling up to 71st in the overall league standings. Now looking back at the drivers I picked for you last week, we had the two the 8 the 9 Austin cindric in the two car. He looked like he could be a good pick with the inclement weather. He's one of the best when it comes to rain. Not this week, however. Coming in the 13th position garnering the 14th most points was all he could muster up for your fantasy lineups. I benched him before the second stage started. Tyler Redick he was strong all day. I almost took him out of my lineup due to the weather, but I took a chance and left him in. He came in the 7th position, and he had the 6th most points on the day. Not a bad day for the 18th. And the 9 car chase Elliott started on the pole. Went on the dominate, most of the race finishing in P four also came up with the fourth most points for the day. Overall, not a bad run for all three drivers. However I expected a little more out of that two car in The Rain. But it looks like the rest of these drives are starting to figure these cars out as well as The Rain. When they do run in the ring. All right, let's take a look now at some of the featured pics I have lined up for you for this week, starting with the 23 car bubble Wallace. He's real good at these super speedways. He's got ten races run, an average finish of 12.5. He runs in the top 5 and top ten roughly 40% of the time. He has led 21 laps at Daytona, but still has yet to win. He is also pulled stage points in 7 of those stages out of those ten races he ran. No stage wins for him. But currently has the third best overall

"Average finish of 12.5. He runs in the top 5 and top ten roughly 40% of the time. He has led 21 laps at Daytona, but still has yet to win. He is also pulled stage points in 7 of those stages out of those ten races he ran. No stage wins for him. But currently has the third best overall career stats on the super speedway. Looking back at the last four races, Wallace has an average finish of 6.5, which is second best overall. With back to back P two finishes at Daytona, bubba's poised for a win at the track. This weekend it's all about the win for that 23 11 team to try and punch their ticket into the playoffs. And the next driver I have for you. I'm hoping you've saved at least one since this is our last race of the regular season, and we will have a reset next week. This is the 11 car Denny Hamlin. He's also very good at this track and he may actually push his protege in Bubba Wallace to a P one finish this weekend. Looking at Demi stats, he's got 33 races run at Daytona, an average finish of 16.5. He finishes in the top 5 33% of the time and top ten in 36% of the time. He's led a lot of laps at 635. That is the most out of all the active drivers. He has three wins at this track and collected stage points in ten of his races. Three of those being stage wins. The looking back ten races, Denny has finished top 5 and half of those races and went to victory lane

Ricky Stenhouse junior is always somebody to look at when you come to these plate races as well. One win, two top 5s, three top tens on a poll. Average finish of 20.1, which is tenth best. We got an Austin Dillon now at number well, there is no number. He drives the number three. One win, three top 5s, 8 top tens, a poll average finish of 15.5 third best. And how about Kevin Harvick two wins of this racetrack 11 top 5, 16 top tens in a poll? Average finish of 18.057. He's a guy who won two races in a row heading into Watkins Glen. That hot streak is still going for. Maybe he can get another win. And the driver with more wins than anyone in all the land. Three wins at Daytona 11 top 5 is 12 top tens. His name is Denny Hamlin. I think I forgot that. Average finish of 16.5. And that's fourth best. Yes, yes, yes, boom. And a couple of other drivers we probably should mention who have done well of recent Bubba Wallace and Michael McDowell at Daytona. Yeah, when you look at Bubba Wallace, that's an interesting thing. He finished second, Daytona 500 this year. He finished second, the Daytona 500. And that 43 car, several years back when he was with Richard Petty motor sports. And now you know you look at things, he's kind of put together a track record, four top 5s, four top tens average finish of his career, 12.5 at Daytona. I think that's a good call. And of course, Michael McDowell, we've talked about him at length before. One the Daytona 500 last season to kind of etch his way into the playoffs for the first time in his career. And he's always a formidable threat. These plate races. Definitely now, we've got all those numbers. They're dancing around in our heads.

"Just go for the win and let everything else shake out as it is. If I'm going to miss out on the playoffs, I want to go down swinging. That's how I am. I'd rather own my own thing and say, you know what? At least I gave it a shot to try to win the race and that's why I'm out of the playoffs. Not that I sat around all day waiting for a big one that didn't come. Or sometimes you wait in the back and you still get caught up in the big ones. So there's just a lot of situations that can play out here. And I just think the best way to go is to go for the win. Well, if you're leading, your competition is behind you. So that's a little piece of mind. But if you're leading with a couple laps to go, you're also sitting duck. Yeah. Matt, but unless he's a sitting duck for a guy who's currently outside the playoff grid, I think he's in a good spot in those last couple of laps. Yeah. Yeah. Let's take a look at the stats for this weekend, race number 26 of 36 that looks legit with ten races in the playoffs. We're getting purse numbers all of a sudden, the purse for this, besides, you know, playoff implications is $8.3 million. The track is two and a half miles in length, banking up to 31°, front stretch, 3800 feet back stretched 3000 feet Cup race, one 60 laps, 400 miles, stages. First one ends on lap 35 second one ends on lap 95 and the third one is, of course, the checkered flag at one 60 last year's winner was Ryan Blaney and earlier this year was the Daytona 500 Austin Cedric took the trophy on that one. Yeah, and if you remember, Ryan Blaney was in contention to win that Daytona 500, got a little bit of a body shove from Austin cinder coming to the line. And they were a little at odds for about a week. Yeah, so we'll see all that super speedway action Saturday night, not Sunday. Under the light 7 p.m. eastern on NBC. Yes, yes, yes. I'm hoping that's correct. I think that sounds right. They usually throw the plate races on the big networks. No, I meant the Saturday part. Oh yes, it's Saturday night. Yes. The paper schedule that I still maintain on my desk. Yes, it always comes through in a pinch. It's just right there. It's handy. Yes. And drivers doing dandy at Daytona. Oh, handy and dandy. Yes, exactly. And first on this list, we've already mentioned a ton, Ryan Blaney's got a win, four top 5, 6 top ten. So definitely does well at this track, average finish. Well, I guess is 18.3. So sometimes he does well. Yeah, I mean, it sounds like. It's hit or miss for everybody at this track though. It's just crazy. Kyle Busch, he's gonna win here 8 top 5s, ten top tens in a poll. Average finish from 19.324 boy could he use a win to kind of bolster his possible contract hopes. Yeah. Austin Cedric has the win earlier this year, one top 5, one top ten, average finish of 8, which turns out to be the series best, but it's all wonky now with new drivers coming in and that kind of stuff. Exactly. Brad Kozlowski, he has a win here as well. Only one win, that's kind of weird. He's kind of one of those play bases. I'm very surprised by that three times. That's true. Average finish of 22.692 E man, he's been in position to win a lot of Daytona 500 and it just hasn't come to fruition, but maybe just maybe he can get it done this weekend and work his way in the playoffs. Could you imagine if like 20 something can points, Brad Keselowski works his way in the playoffs? That would be nuts. His old teammates and contract boy extension.

This should be a runaway for him. Record of these contracts. Yeah. How about Kevin Harvick? He also has a win here 7 top 5s and 13 top tens. Local driver there, Kevin Harvick, if you want to consider Bakersfield two and a half hours away local. But they're going to say it on TV. They'll be like, this is his home track. He used to when he was a young boy he'd come down here and watch just like the track to open until 97. Yeah, yeah, and like I said, it was like 30 by then. Two and a half hour drive. Martin Truex Junior, like we said, has a win two top 5 7 top tens and a poll. How about Brad Keselowski, mister destruction himself? He should have been the one threatening to tear up this racetrack. One win, 5 top 5s and 6 top tens. And finally, the guy that owns this track at the moment for wins for Kyle Busch 11 top 5, 16 top tens, and he also has a poll.

"Hey. You all right? Yeah, that's me. Okay. That didn't change or anything. All right. Title is still the same. We're all right. Awesome. So before the Daytona 500 last week, we got some like earth shattering news, huge, massive. In the back of the hauler, a little deal was made. That sounds so sketchy. I know. Some of you are going to drive for the team, another 5 years, see. So what's your referencing, obviously, is the chase Elliott contract extension. The sport's most popular driver and Cup Series champion for 2020 chase Elliott has inked a contract extension. And like Kerry said, the news was dropped moments before the Daytona 500 on Sunday. Chase will remain with Hendrick motor sports for another 5 years bringing his tenure to the end of the 2027 NASCAR Cup Series season. So this is big. This is a big deal. Well, based on the Hendrick motor sports tweet, it sounds like it might be longer than 5 years as they tweeted quote as long as chase is driving, we want him right here with Hendrick motor sports. Yeah, and on Thursday before the duels, Rick Hendrick was asked this in a media availability. About contracts for William Byron and chase Elliott, he said, I want both those guys to be my drivers forever. Wow. And said that contract extension news would be coming soon. And sure enough, we got chase is on Sunday, so we should be getting William Byron soon too. Forever seems like a long time. Well, I mean, you'll think about it. He signed a lifetime contract with Jeff Gordon, and we see how that's turning out now. Yeah, he's still stuck with him. Having to do a day job now, right? In fact, Jeff was there on hand as a team executive now. Signing the contract and chase said, well, now what? Let's go try to get us a Daytona 500. How about that? Well, that didn't work. I didn't win the Daytona 500, but he was the top finishing Chevy, although in tenth, but which is so weird because they were on the front row, they were dominating in terms of speed and it just didn't work out in terms of race. Luck. This is the thing we've been seeing for the last several years. Hendrick is always lights out when it comes to qualifying a Daytona, but that doesn't translate to what happens on the actual track, and these guys during the opening practice sessions were working so hard on qualifying speeds that you kind of negate the whole fact that there's a drafting thing that has to happen during the rest of the week. And it's been a little bit of a layoff here as far as this goes. These guys have been working on dirt racing, all sorts of other stuff. You kind of have to work your way back into this whole drafting thing, I think. They need to start focusing more on the drafting and the other parts of the week at Daytona. Isn't this been the 42nd year in a row that had a motor sports on the front row? Something like that. My goodness. You might as well have pencil it in. Every year you already know it's going to be Hendrick motor sports on the pole, and most of the time it's them on the entire front row. Yeah, it's just crazy. So chase said quote, I feel back to the actual story we're talking about. I feel so fortunate to be in this position. I have a great team with leadership from Alan Gustafson the crew chief. And the support of the best car owner and racing organization in the world for me. There's a lot of pride in driving for Hendrick motor sports and having the opportunity to win races and compete for championships. We are capable of accomplishing a lot more and it starts today, damn it. Boom. I added the damn it. That would have been cool through this a damn it though. That would have been. That would have been next level. I'm like, wow. Yeah. We're in the press release. We'd be like, okay. All right. Wow. Damn it. All right. Sometimes they throw an exclamation point in those press releases, and it's silly. Right. But damn it would have really nailed it home. Yes, that would have put a exclamation point on it. In addition to his performance on the track as you probably know, Elliott has been voted by the fans as NASCAR's Cup Series most popular driver in each of the last four seasons. In 7 years, now beginning of 8, in the Cup Series, he has 13 wins, 74 top 5s, 118 top tens, or 17. I think I updated it. One of the two. I think it's, I think it's one 17. I think you're right. Because you just got another one. 9 poles and is of course the 2020 Cup Series champion already. He's a champion. All ready. Yep. I would be shocked if he doesn't end up with more championships too, because he's just too clean of a driver. He's too on point with what he's doing for that to have been it, I think, especially in the organization he drives for is among the best we've ever seen. So I would be very shocked if chase Elliott doesn't win another Cup Series championship before it's all over. He will have a few, I think. He has, I don't know, shades of Jimmie Johnson going on. Shades of Jimmy. Yeah. And maybe a dabble of Jeff. A dash. Yes, a dash of pitch. I mean, Larson's for the most part, pretty clean, except if you're at the coliseum, but yeah, as long as your name's not Justin Haley. Right. Definitely. So all in all, so is William to be honest. So was Alex. They all have, they're very kind of clean drivers. Well, unless you ask Denny Hamlin about Alex Bowman, but yeah. Well, but Denny Hamlin runs into everybody. So, everyone, you know, doesn't get along with him. That's true. At some point, you're the common denominator..

"What's up? How's it going? That is. That sounded like I was falling, but I'm fine. I'm good. Yeah, it did kinda sound like he would. Exactly, exactly. So the sport's biggest race, NASCAR's biggest race of the season wrapped up last weekend. They call it the Daytona 500, I think we'll do the same. Yeah, and what I did tell him 500 it was, my goodness, this was an incredible week and an electric atmosphere carry just from being out there. There were so many people out there all week long. I'm talking for the duels for the arca truck race night. You had the Xfinity race and Cup race. There were massive amounts of people throughout the entire week. Of course, the biggest part of it was Sunday. There was a huge contingent of fans out there with it being sold out, but all week long, there was a buzz. There was a lot of people out there and they saw a heck of a show all week long. So you were there, you were at the race track. The visual on television of the sold out crowd is something we haven't seen in a while, and it gave me chills. It was great. Dude, I was out there walking around in the fan zone and everything. And even on dual night, I was like, man, this is pretty good. I was like, wow. And it was like a fraction of what ended up being there on Sunday, but Sunday I even took video of walking down the grid, probably about two or three hours before the race started. It was chaos, man. It was chaos. I could not believe how many people were out there. And it was incredible to see that kind of turnout. For what you saw on pit road, there were thousands and thousands in the Enfield that couldn't get in to pit road. There were just a lot of people out there. It was really impressive to see. I wonder if it's, I mean, obviously part of it is just pent up being locked up for a couple of years because of COVID and stuff. There's got to be an element of that. But the excitement level of the season itself is just next level. Yeah. I mean, you can tell, people were very excited. People walking on pit road wanted to see those new cars up close and in person. And it was cool to NASCAR allowed people to do so. The cars weren't roped off or anything like that. You could literally go up and touch them. Some people were touching the cars before the race. It was impressive. It was a very good show. It was really, really cool to see the people come out in full force when they finally had a chance to this time around. Yeah. I can't wait. I'm going out to the racetrack. You have this weekend. I can't wait to see the cars. I mean, that's first and foremost. The other thing is, I mean, it's been two years since I've done a one on one interview. It's going to be weird. It's so strange. It's bizarre. Just even walking up to you guys after the race. I know I did Martin so last year, but I didn't really have any schedule because it was so last minute and popped a few things as the week went on, but it's very bizarre. You're not used to just having them at your access. At any time where you can walk up to them. Right. It does change things a little bit. I've got the three interviews lined up and one of them actually asked me to keep my distance, wear a mask, be prepared for all that kind of stuff. And so I got to have two recorders, I guess, and I'll just hand one to the driver and we can do it that way. But it's definitely a different animal. I mean, I usually put my recorder on a selfie stick anyway for Joey Logano interviews because he was so tall or Boston centric for that matter. So I think that might play well. In this case too. Yeah, and I think you're in good shape. I think you just continue with that and I think they'll be very happy or even accommodating that request that well. You're not going to see anybody else go the extra mile like that. So I think that's pretty cool. Yeah. And then I'm going to Vegas as well, and I've got a bunch of interviews lined up for that. That's a little different I've noticed. And scheduling the cup guys aren't at the track on Friday. So I had to kind of rework the way I do things. So I'm solely going for cup guys this weekend and then Xfinity truck for the Vegas weekend. Interesting. So you're going to time your surgical strikes differently this time around. My surgical strikes, oh, I felt so in the moment to scheduling all this stuff and it's like, oh my God, it's good to be back. That's funny. So yeah, so for people who don't know, Carrie shows up. Surgically. Surgically comes in and knocks out all of his interviews within a day or two. Most of the time, one day. And then there's me that literally will drive cross country stay out. And so here's the deal. So this week was nuts. So I left on Thursday. I left at 5 a.m. from my house. I left from 5 a.m. drove the entire 7 hour drive straight to Daytona. I got to Daytona, grab my credentials, grab my hard card and everything. From their office there, immediately went in the track and worked all day and the rest of the night until about ten 30 or 1130 at night. During the dual thing,.

That being said, let's take a look forward to this week's race.

"And practiced this week. Let me write that down here because I got my picture, right? Getting you ranch. I think there we go. We mentioned Michael McDowell, William Byron won before that and the other summer race. Yeah, and he's been kind of locked down for the last year as far as being really good on the racetrack so I'd be pretty, I would not be shocked if William Byron won a Daytona 500. Then you got the Denny Hamlin 500, then Justin Haley, which we mentioned somewhere in the show today. Yeah? And then the other data, the other Denny Hamlin 500 wins. You got some picks in there. If you read between the lines a little bit, yeah, and every one of them, then you mentioned here. I know a lot of people say that anyone can win at plate races and that it's very prone to having fluke winners, but everyone you look at in this list, even Michael McDowell. They have been very good at play racing over the years. It's not like there's any weird shock here. There's no just bizarre name. There's not like I came to think of a weird name, but there's not a weird one up here that you go, oh yeah, that guy can't win a plate race. So Justin Haley is a little bizarre. Well, it is just because the team is running for the time, but now he's on a team that is here to compete and actually go for championships and wins. I think Haley is actually in a pretty good spot to show show what he's made of this year. All right. Up next, the actual fantasy NASCAR picks from our guru, rowdy dragon. Is he a guru? I don't know.

"For that and I can tell you it's a really it's a really fun brand. They've been around for a long time. They're kind of iconic. But it's not what people think. And they want to partner with us to get some good visibility and say, you know, look, we're actually, we're pretty cool. Honestly, it's been pretty, you know, it's been pretty changing for me. I met these folks and they kind of explain their story and we've gone to their location that it's really it's really unique. I'm really excited about what they do. So, you know, I hope we can represent them further than just Daytona. Hopefully hopefully more racism won. That's actually good to hear that you have sponsorships or sponsors in general companies coming into NASCAR. That you're excited about. Yeah, well, you know, I think you have to have some sort of excitement or passion for the people you partner with, otherwise it's kind of an empty and empty thing, right? It's a logo on your truck. And you don't even know what's on your truck. I'm kind of the opposite. I like to be involved in what's neat is these people that you meet in the sport. They're all usually pretty good people and they all have such an amazing story with the companies that are with. And I always just found the whole networking piece very, very interesting. Looking at the upcoming NASCAR season as a whole. Do you remember a time when there's been this much excitement around just the entire sport of NASCAR? No. Well, you know, not really, the times that I started watching NASCAR, I was so young that, you know, I really didn't perceive all that excitement. It was my own excitement. I was 7 years old, 6 years old and those were some really good times and NASCAR. You know, 2003, four, 5. It's the stuff that legends are made of. But now, modern times, yeah, this is a ton of excitement. I think, you know, the next gen cup car is a big contributor to that. But the truck series itself are series itself has been so it's just been packed with competitors. It's just been so impact and if I look back at my history and the truck series, I think it is harder now to win a race, harder now to win a championship than ever before. For sure, for sure. Now as a driver and as a fan, what do you expecting to see? Let's say you've already won your truck series race. And you're sitting down to watch the Daytona 500. What do you expecting out of those cup guys? You know, I'm gonna expect maybe some hesitation, like a little bit of hesitation to start. I don't think they're gonna risk it all initially. I think all those cup drivers are very, very smart. They're methodical. And I really feel like you might not see them push it like you would, the old style cut car because they don't know what to expect yet. You don't know what's gonna break. You don't know how the bumpers are going to line up. You don't know really how they're going to drive and a huge pack like that. I mean, I know they did some testing, but this is the racing environment now. Things change and it happens fast. So if I was a cup driver, I would take it slow. Where are you going to be watching the race? I'm actually going to fly back home. The night before that, I'm going with I'm going with my engineer out to local late model track. We're going to help him out and see if we can get a win with him. And then I'm going to fly home and hopefully be on the couch watching the Daytona 500 and next to my next to my family and my puppy. All right, sounds good. And last question, what's your daily driver? You try and maybe nudge Toyota to get a Supra out of them or what? That's actually what I'm in right now. I love it. Awesome. I gotta say, look, I was skeptical. I was skeptical when they said the super was coming back because you know I really enjoyed those cars, my dad had a Supra when he was about my age. And so I don't know, it just felt right. And they knocked it out of the park. I mean, it's got really good power stock. There's so many options you can do to them to customize them. And what I think is really fun is the fact that it's got the room in the back. It's spacious enough yet nimble and quick. It's just like the total package. That's perfect for a race car driver. Yeah, well, not on the road. I'm going to get myself in trouble. Yeah. Yeah, you get plenty of the horsepower over at the track. All right, Ben Rhodes, I totally appreciate the time. 20, 21, NASCAR truck series champion. I'll say it one more time. Best of luck throughout the season and especially this coming weekend at Daytona. Yeah, thanks so much and I love hearing it. So we can keep it going too. The final lap dot com.

"Everybody's talking about the next gen Cup Series car. But you just mentioned a bunch of changes coming to you guys as well. So how do you deal with that heading into this season? Well, you know, the good part is that the folks that I have on my specific crew, this 90 19 have a lot of experience with bump stops. It's technology that's been around for a long time. It's been used in late models really, really heavily. And of course it's used in the Xfinity series and it was in the cup. So I feel like we're well versed. And the preparation is really just having the knowledge on how to implement it. And so far, we've got the right people. So that gives me a lot of comfort going into Daytona and really the whole 2022 season. And Daytona is this weekend. I mean, how do you prepare for that? What are you going to be doing? What are some of the things on your checklist? Well, you know, we prepare with simulation as far as the driver goes at most race tracks. But they told her that's not necessarily the case. I mean, it's just something that you have to be in and experience and really just it's something that you have to look back at and look at video and look at your notes and really you just have to have the experience. It's so unique. Yeah, absolutely. So what is your outlook for the upcoming season for 2022? You've got a championship under your belt that has your goals changed? You know, I think the big goal for this year is to try to get 5 wins. I mean, that's the most I've ever had for sure, but it's doable. But it stays within the same mantra of making sure that we're smooth and consistent and we're not missing our marks and there's no mistakes and, you know, if you can do all of that, you should be finishing more laps than anybody else. You should be finishing the top ten every race. And those are goals of ours. I think they're doable. They're really tough. And no mistakes is the absolute foundation of that. We're on with defending truck series champion Ben Rhodes. And overall, as a NASCAR driver, what do you think your goals are for, say, the next 5 years? You know, I haven't really thought out that far, actually. All right, three years. Well, I'm notorious for taking it race by race and I mean, you can say season by season, but really, I'm raised by race. I try to have one eye looking towards the championship at the end of 2022 or the end of the race season. And then one eye on the race that's in front of me. I am notorious for not looking much further than that. It's funny, a lot of people ask me last year. Did you ever think you were going to run a Cup race at Sonoma? And I say, no, absolutely not. Grateful for the opportunity. But my focus has been so heavily geared towards what I'm doing with this truck championship that I haven't even looked at anything. And really I'm so happy at Thor sport racing. It would be it would have to be really something for me to even take my focus off of the truck series. I'm just so happy. You mentioned, oh, that's great. That's great to hear. You mentioned Thor sport. What's the lineup looking like in terms of sponsorships and drivers and all that stuff for this year? Well, I'm really excited. We've got a sponsor where announcing here at Daytona. So I can't spill the beans just yet. But you can look for that and I can tell you it's a really it's a really fun brand. They've been around for a long time. They're kind of iconic. But it's not what people think. And they want to partner with us to get some good visibility and say, you know, look, we're actually, we're pretty.

"Before worrying about the upcoming race weekends at new hampshire motor speedway in dover. The primary focus was taking care of nascar industry members scattered around the country on that fateful tuesday and along the way. We're talking to different people in industry almost nonstop. And you know you find that. There's one team. I think they bring kansas testing and they were watching it unfold. And then we had a group of officials in richmond. Virginia that stayed over after the richmond race before they went to new hampshire in richmond to work on the rule book for two thousand and two which is which was usual for us back then to take a moment in that august-september window to work on next year's rulebook so that was all organized after richmond stayed up for or so then came back to daytona monday night. And so we had a group in richmond at a hotel working on the rule book and i called them up and say hey you guys may need to turn on the tv. Because you know you're not far from dc and you know keep an eye on things and and then the federal government starts making decisions about ground and air traffic So the guys in kansas. We're going to have to figure out how to wrap up out there and then and drive back to charlotte and our officials in richmond are going to have to figure out because i was going to stop and pick up a lot of them on the way to new hampshire but the the the spirit of what you were doing either if i think teams testing or us working on rule book she here kind of come out of that you you said i we can. We can worry about this later. There's there's something more important going on that we we just don't have the heart to pay attention to what we're supposed to be doing. So and i think that was kinda universal that gins had our industry it was but i think it was universal. Just talking to friends and family members. That's not in the sport.

"Race what's up people rowdy dragging back again with this week. Spinal weekly fantasy update well. We're fresh off michigan speedway another good race that just flip the whole fantasy league upside down again. We'll get into that in a bit right now. We'll take a look at the stage winners. The first stage goes to propane racing and stay to goes to tiny ocho racing. The wind for the weekend at michigan. International speedway goes to good wiser for with a whopping two hundred. Forty three points and like i said for michigan. We had a complete flip flop. In the point standings again we have a new leader in the final ap. Weekly fantasy league. Losing makes my dick trickle. Here's a little throwback for you to one of the greats all right folks so now if you want to get in on the playoffs. This is the last race of the season. A playoff start next week. As i've said before i've got a trophy for the playoffs and a trophy for the season winner now. I'm seeing a lot of people dropping off if you feel like you're not doing well during the season and you quit and you've lost hope. Well now there's more hope you can get in on the playoffs game so come back over and join us. We've got two hundred and fifty nine people currently in the league and that is growing. We get roughly about one person every week. So that's kinda neat so again if you wanna get in on. The playoffs run for the final app weekly. Join us now head over to the final app. Weekly dot com. Hit that tab on the corner join fantasy league make yourself creative name like our first place runner right now and listen to the final app weekly said i can get you some help getting those picks in and helping you out with a good score so let's getting into helping you out for daytona now daytona international raceway. It's a wildcard in itself. And now they're throwing it as the last race of the regular season. That just makes everything even more crazy. So looking at the strongest drivers at daytona. Right now. it's kinda hard to find them. But there is at least one that stands out in denny hamlin in the eleven car in february he two segments and came home with a fifth place finish. That started off his good points. Run which has been taken over by. Kyle larson now. But since denny locked in he will be going for that win on sunday now since two thousand eighteen denny his led almost twenty percent of the laps at daytona international speedway. Keep that in mind for your draftkings lineups as well. If you're out there playing that now looking a little bit further down the list. Austin dillon had a pretty good show. Last week at michigan he was doing great he was doing a little bit overdriving and his over aggressiveness cost him potentially his run at the playoffs. Now he's real good at daytona. He had a p three in february. Andy collected states points in both stages. So he's going to have to be aggressive if he wants to get that win. Because that's the only way he's going to get in unless tyler riddick has some major issues and then the thought of somebody else getting that win and bumping them. Both out is going be on their minds all day. Keep an eye on the manufacturer's running together this week. That kinda hurts the toyotas since they lack in numbers but they have denny hamlin. Now this week will really be the. Who's who of drivers that's left in your garage. If you have any drivers left that took care of you. In february you'll probably want to use them again. If all else fails. It's time to get out. That nascar dartboard throw those darts and hope for the best. This is daytona folks. Now it's going to set the stage for the play. All of the drivers are reset. And you have five uses of each left so you now have established your position in the game and you have to think about how aggressive. You're going to play going forward. Are i folks. That's all. I got for you this week. I will give us a top ten rundown next week as the playoffs begin. And we'll see where the field shakes up at that point so good luck at daytona. This weekend there's going to be a lot of happy people and it's gonna be a lot of grumpy people after this one are folks. We will talk to you again next week. Thanks again for hanging around listening to the final app weekly fantasy segment of the show. I am rowdy dragon until next time. Check us out online at the final lap dot com final lap dot com..

He's not an in your face kind of guy. He's not outgoing and gregarious. Yeah he's got that sly sense of humor is just a cool dude to be around. But i think ryan gets overlooked a lot if they can get the fords right over there at penske him and todd gordon. I think todd got something to prove. He's coming to the end of the crew cheating road at the end of the year. Maybe ryan blaney once the playoffs. Start at darlington. Couldn't be could be. That could be the sleeper. In this thing they could be the dark horse and maybe they can start making some strides in momentum. But i am a believer in confidence. I think ryan blaney. He's got a lot of that coming into daytona this weekend. Well what a dummy this they ended in what you're saying there Two drivers that won sixteen races between them. Last year kevin harvick nine denny hamlin seven. What are their car saying about them and their confidence at both have zero so far. I'm sorry those cars able to go toe to toe with those hendrix chevrolets. Isn't that the head scratcher who thought we'd be at the race. Twenty five guys that one half the schedule last year or half the races just about winless so far and really in the case of kevin harvick unless something happens i don't see him pulling off a win denny hamlin we all know he's great when he goes to daytona but kenny milk. A little more out of that this coming weekend and get his first win of the year. I think in order to do that. He's going to have to get through a lot of other drivers ryan. Blaney being one of them the hendrick guys being others and then there's that longshot possibility that everyone's hoping for we'll see we'll see what happens but i don't know my communist level is low in those two drivers heading into this weekend and even into the playoffs when we get going at darlington. Yeah so much to predict airbag. Now i'm gonna look at the history though the first race i have recovered at daytona. To tell these guys earlier july two thousand one one by junior the nascar. Abc guest on your siriusxm program. Today was still junior. I understand he talked about that. That's still really resonates with nascar nation. Doesn't it and it still resonates with him. We got an emotional response. And he walked us through the snapshots of his of his mind and his recollection as he was going to the end of that race and i still reflect back on that moment. You know there are. There are moments that you can list on one hand that could be considered seminal moments in this sport and in my opinion based on what we had in february of two thousand one him coming back to daytona in july of two thousand one and winning was one of those moments that gave us permission to be to be happy again and to and to celebrate little. Did we know that that emotion that dale earnhardt jr. brought us out of after february would ultimately carry us through another emotional moment in september when he wanted a tone or when he wanted to dover when we came back after the nine eleven brain. Someone's going to have their own big moment to someone's xfinity and cup at daytona. This weekend at all kicks off. Friday night seven. Pm eastern on nbc then..

"Hey good how are you doing. And i was wondering if you guys think driver. 'cause we keep talking about tyler radic often doing. I was wondering if you guys think like the guy from twentieth. Thirtieth points would have the best job dilemma ami alfredo for front row sweep into the playoffs or like a new man. Who do you guys think would be like a cinderella story to get it in me. Newman would be certainly jumped top list because we wanted daytona before He's always good there. You could have won the daytona five hundred for a second time a couple of years ago and he had the horrible crash the last lab. And if you're talking about cinderella stories this is a guy that doesn't really know what he's doing In the future doesn't really told us at indianapolis he doesn't have anything for next season. Dj and He's certainly will have a lot of motivation to try to win this race. And as a veteran a guy who's been around for since two thousand and two he's got the experience level. Where know you're asking tyler. About the fact that they're entering this race with no idea how the cars are going to draft and we've resumed. They won't suck up as much as they did in the daytona. Five hundred or at the talladega race. We presume that it's going to be a little bit harder maneuver and get acquisition. I'm looking at veterans. If that's this more protracted race than he's a guy thank you could use his savvy to get up to the front. Yeah thank you hit on a good point there because of this rules package and there's been so no practice they don't have any idea exactly how these cars are going to react in this situation. So they're going to be learning in that first stage exactly what they can expect and so i think experience is going to play a big part of that for drivers that have been through a number of different changes throughout the years at daytona and talladega with this. So you look at that. I think there's a driver that also has motivation. Because he really doesn't know what he's doing a matinee benedetto and he's got a fast car. It could be the wood brothers one hundred win when you look at all of that. And he's got three sorta teammates that really know how to get the job done with brad keselowski and and Joey logano and ryan blaney. So will they work with him in trying to help them. We asked ron blind you that on monday. And he said sure you know he said if i'm in that position you know i'm more than glad to help out matadi. So that's kind of a driver that even though he might not fit the experience side of it i think he has enough experience to and want to get the job done and he's not in the top. I think he's in the top twenty bubba. Wallace probably isn't that twentieth range of daniel's talking about kind of a perilous situation where toyota driver who's got four. Joe gibbs racing teammates who were all locked in. They're going to be a squadron helping him and and we saw him run very well at the daytona. Five hundred really early this year. I think walls could definitely win a super threat one other quick name and then we gotta get to brand on the phone. Which is ricky stenhouse. Junior coup has three three plate. Wins as one at daytona. Before so i wouldn't be all that surprise. You know seems like checkers. Records all right. Let's go to brandon friend. What's your question. Hey guys My question was since kyle. Larson has been having such an outstanding season Not just a nascar. But in all forms of racing should we now start comparing him to like an aj. Andretti or tony stewart. Or is he just somewhere in a league of his own. I think he got for answering the question of a controversial opinions. So i want the the hall of famers take.

"Of any other driver in this entire race. Well as much as i respect your opinion why don't we just go to the source. I feel like this is a good time to bring in the man. Tyler rettig tyler. I don't know if you've got to care what all day said about how he thinks. Maybe you should approach this race. What are your thoughts still with a couple of days to go ahead of the last regular season daytona. Well i would. I would agree. It's a very difficult place to be because in the past are When i did this. I had nothing to lose. So it's like oh well crash oil and unfortunately it did crash cars with me but yeah you have everything to lose all a full season's worth of of good runs. I mean sitting eleventh in points right now regular-season points anyways like we've dug our way out of a hole that we started the year in and all it all comes to one race daytona superspeedway race. you know in the summer at night you know all those things all the things that address excitement and intensity to event dollar. I'd say how concerned are you with basically a rules package. That you haven't raced. And how do you anticipate that changing the way that that the racing modern unfold on saturday night. Well everyone's going be kinda starting from scratch going right into right into the green flag on saturday in our event So yeah the you know we. We are going to have the the wicker bill or i think. That's what they're calling it on the back of the spoiler and you know we're gonna have a smaller or a mess. Sub ran a larger restrictor plate. There's going to be less less air getting into the engine so random making less power. Everyone's gonna be kind of having to figure out how the cars are going to draft. How much are they gonna be. You know the closing of the other more control or they are gonna be packed up tighter together than we already are. There's gonna be a lot of things that the field is going to be figuring out in the beginning of this race and not to mention guys like teammate. Austin dillon are going to be having to try and go up there and get state points and other drivers that From from eighteenth on back in in the points are going to be just trying to set themselves up to win the race so we got a lot of things to keep our eyes on but You know us as well. We have a car to figure out and understand. Is our car where we want it to be for the end of the race and are we going to be able to go up there and and get stage points or or you know how exactly we go about. It's all going to unfold in our directions going to be set for the most part initially anyways Off of those initial apps with this new new package that we will superspeedway race. If you will yeah. It was a lot to get top of their tyler and obviously a lot of pressure. I heard athletes in other sports. That say that you know when the games on the line they want the ball in their hands. They wanna be able to make that play. You're in that situation somewhat here in that. You're you're in that last visual spot right now. How do you feel about pressure going into a race like this. Is it something you embrace his privileges. I've heard some people say that you're kind of in this position. Is that the way you deal with it. Well it is a pressure filled moment for sure but it isn't anything to be stressed about. This is something we've been working towards all year long Being able to be on the plus side of the cut line going into daytona. We just didn't wanna be the last car in plus twenty five going into this race. But that's kinda the way it unfolded but you know we've had a good year up.

"Good race that just flip the whole fantasy league upside down again. We'll get into that in a bit right now. We'll take a look at the stage winners. The first stage goes to propane racing and state to goes to tiny ocho racing. The wind for the weekend at michigan. International speedway goes to good wiser for with a whopping two hundred. Forty three points and like i said for michigan. We had a complete flip flop. In the point standings again we have a new leader in the final ap week we fantasy league losing makes my dick trickle. Here's a little throwback for you to one of the greats all right folks so now if you wanna get in on the playoffs. This is the last race of the season. A playoff start next week. As i've said before i've got a trophy for the playoffs and a trophy for the season winner. Now seeing a lot of people dropping off if you feel like you're not doing well during the season and you quit and you've lost hope. Well now there's more hope you can get in on the playoffs game so come on back over and join us. We've got two hundred and fifty nine people currently in the league and that is growing. We get roughly about one person every week. So that's kinda neat so again if you wanna get in on. The playoffs run for the final app weekly. Join us now head over to the final app. Weekly dot com. Hit that tab on the corner joined fantasy league. Make yourself creative name like our first place runner right now and listen to the final app weekly. Said i can get you some help. Getting those picks in and helping with a good score so let's getting into helping you out for daytona. Now daytona international raceway. It's a wild card in itself and now they're throwing it as the last race of the regular season. That just makes everything even more crazy so looking at the strongest drivers at daytona right. Now it's kinda hard to find them. But there is at least one that stands out in denny hamlin in the eleven car in february. He won two segments and came home with fifth place finish. That started off his good points. Run which has been taken over by. Kyle larson now. But since denny is locked in he will be going for that win. On sunday now since twenty eighteen denny has led almost twenty percent of the laps at daytona international. Speedway keep that in mind for your draftkings lineups as well. If you're out there playing that now looking a little bit farther down the list austin. Dillon had a pretty good show. Last week at michigan he was doing great he was doing a little bit overdriving and his over aggressiveness cost him potentially his run at the playoffs. Now he's real good at daytona. He had a p three in february and he collected states points in both stages. So he's going to have to be aggressive if he wants to get that win. Because that's the only way he's going to get in unless tyler riddick a caz some major issues and then the thought of somebody else getting that win and bumping them. Both out is going to be on their minds all day. Keep an eye on the manufacturer's running together this week. That kinda hurts the toyota since they lack in numbers but they have denny hamlin. Now this week will really be the. Who's who of drivers that's left in your garage. If you have any drivers left that took care of you. In february you'll probably wanna use them again. If all else fails it's time to get out that nascar dartboard throw those darts and hope for the best. This is daytona folks. Now it's going to set the stage for the playoffs. All of the drivers are reset. And you have five uses of each left so you now have established your position in the game and you have to think about how aggressive. You're going to play going forward. Are i folks. that's how i got free this week. I will give us a top ten rundown next week as the playoffs begin. And we'll see where the field shakes up at that point so good luck at daytona.

"Think that the regular season has has kind of a the joan because you're constantly trying to win to To get more bonus points. Everyone's trying to chase the bonus points because it's such a a big deal that's kind of the the big The big factor in the regular season But in the grand scheme of things The difference in five points in the playoffs is important. But you just gotta go out there and executed. So we've we've been a lot of time talking about each race in first round. You know. I feel like darlington. We ran well richmond. We ran well. Obviously we don't have an ideal in bristol yet but I think we can improve just a little bit on both of those tracks that we ran already in and try to put ourselves in a good position that first round. So yeah like you said. It's it's all about the playoffs at this point. William byron is the defending race winner. So what's the plan Mr william blair and fancy pants driver the twenty four car this weekend at daytona for me i'd love to get the stage wins But realistically i think that our goal is to get to the end and have a shot to to win You know that's really. The big goal is trying to get the five bonus points for the for the playoffs. Try to also get a good starting spot for darlington You know in those two things are kinda first and foremost But in the grand scheme of things. Like routing i talked about. It's not a huge deal Either way so. I feel like for us. It's it's about having fun Trying to go out there and get another win in. Continue to kinda learn some things in build some thanks for talladega. Obviously the package is different. less horsepower than we've had so i think we're gonna be gone quite a bit slower and And that's going to play a role too in trying to learn the draft and trying to learn the aero package for for the next race in the playoffs. Oh yeah i kind of just try to take the temperature on the on the draft in. What's a safe position to be in. And if i can be upfront the whole race than great but If i get shuffled back in it feels to dicey than the neon. I'll try to make it to the and william byron. What was it the fancy pants. Yeah the whole attitude with it too is fun. Good drivers doing dandy at daytona. I'm going to take this neck. Harnessing off here's disa- great sound effect. Listen to this one spot. We got her own. That's right velcro. Tearing that velcro tear will not get a sued. So that's perfect. All right mush win. At-at fives nine top. Tens and sixteen point zero is his average. Finish about william byron. He's the defending champion this race one year ago. And if you don't know what that means that means. He took the checkered flag in this very race last year. Yes so. I'm saying he won this race a year ago. I think we well established that earlier on and we'll just in case there's any confusion. William byron won this race three hundred and sixty five plus some more days ago so wait. He did burn outs after the race. He won oh and then he went to victory lane afterwards because he won so they take him to victory lane afterwards and he celebrates and then he. He changed a lot of hats and they gave them a sticker. He did a lot of things that.
