And i belong in so i got up. Walk into the kitchen swift flooring shattered my arm and all the dean indignities that was for some reason cutting blow so you as you say you were dealing not only with parkinson's for many years you've just gone through this incredibly dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from your spine. Just spend a moment there for a minute. How serious was that spinal diagnosis in was pretty seriously lifting for a while for a few years. But he's been in a benign and static wasn't doing anything from the dodgers. Just watch that check on every now and then so when the last time that checked on it had grown quite considerably was actually on spinal cord itself which then made Something that Attach because they can't in any way touch her to remove some spinal for when you touch it. But johns hopkins adopted feodor. When's your with me. Discuss the risk. The risk of not doing it where i would be paralyzed by now by as we speak from when win puts me that way i realized yeah and then there you are lying on the floor in your apartment in new york city. Your arm shattered. You'd gone through all of these challenges and gotten through them for the most part right. So where do you think the darkness came from. Why did you so desperately lose that optimism that to become known for some reason it was almost instantaneous last lemon unknown lemonade Unbelie it was angry myself for taking for granted Detention in the in the care they put into my health in my in my life and you know what family Asked me to be careful. When i said don't be careful. Careful careful Carelessly walking too fast and it was two kind of full of pride of of at my might chievements to understand the risks of taking an inadequate To at risk in all the time engine Physical therapists who put me at risk and anti alexander myself I agree as said about how they push china's within a bum. Catchy raised the land myself. They get passes the nothing it was like. I started thinking with the parkinson's community i Optimism tennessee. And i kind of said it'll be okay and and really there are people that had a misery index lot higher needle. Lend me with a broken arm. Bagging car is these are people who've lost lives homes country family children woodward by bam. Who am i to tell them to be have to miss it online on the slowly a rag or i can see why you would be angry but what about scared was scared to well. Isn't that what happened. Was that came out of that. Here that come off the floor and heavily armed fiction which function in a. I would let examined all these things. Fear aging gratitude. Just all of these things came through my mind. And as i made notes on them out for no reason Lebron you're going through something with take contemporaries in alabama a. He's not that. I said let's deceased together into the story of what happened and how i lost and regained my commitment. How might new. Optimism is kind of a little more informed with a little more realistic eating. Be realistic at the same time. You reminded us for those who need to be reminded how precious thing it is to walk. And i found the way that you described your relationship with wheelchairs to be very powerful at one point in the book said that. Unless you know the person who's pushing you can be a very isolating experience in fact you compared yourself to a piece of luggage and then you went on to say that if we could ever just look at each other in the eye we would recognize our shared humanity. And i just want to thank you for that. Because actually i had never thought of that before and those are probably things. I imagine that you for granted at some stage in your life as as being and i talked about that will move momentum me my life and and how i was always moving in in my job is an actor. Energy do stunts or having physical representations of what was happening or as an athlete another good one persona in so. When i look at things i will shares do thing one to have been nail biting person. My whole life into be can't walk in the other thing about being in the chair. Is that for me personally. I'm i'm i'm someone who is easily recognizable. Everybody knows intense speed familiar with and even if they don't know me as a privilege of what i do but when you're unsure you just a piece of luggage and pushing Order hotel something. He's escaped me from point being open to get five bucks in so you just stay in you push Facing the wall can't get into the verbally again. Like you will not have Beings open as they are. They might as well. Apple's own smoke last bubbles. Is that people to be going on with him. Well let's talk about your acting career. The thing that made it so that people recognize you on the street. You've gotten roles in recent years. The didn't hide the fact that you had parkinson's symptoms but actually incorporated that into the role such as louis canning of courses. The lawyer on the tv drama. The good wife with listen to a scene there. I suffer from a condition turtle disconnect asia which is released a funny word for neurological disorder. And it makes me do this. And this i if you just look at me all of us to it so and i won't mind in the book you say that you're ready to accept the your acting career is over to an extent i i laugh in fact it's something surprisingly something to change but yeah the last couple times. I acted i actually. I haven't played warners again anyway. Resume lines difficulty for some reason. Always been some interesting. Even with. I look at her family. Ties scripted from five minutes Show and i just said they photographic memories Position where i didn't know struggling with the lines Lear capital in time in hollywood going off assessing what. What is the deal. But unlike him in that movie. Who's parading himself really angry when i found myself in that position. I said i'll gable. This isn't working so maybe we'll find some other way to do it or not. Do you also say you may be done with gulf another thing that you've loved. How is it letting these things go or acknowledging that it might be time soon to let them go. Insights about acceptance and gratitude and acceptance. Part of it is what is accepted into circuit. That is what liz i can deal with that. An investing came endeavor to change it. But if you don't accept the and be more blog that be cranny of your life Adjusted so. I accepted the fact that i assume golf club too hard. I fall down in a like boohoo. I'm falling nanosecond. Only now therefore i don't put myself in that position again fall down on but maybe one day i'll be treated in a way or find some way to get so. I don't fall down in the gulf again. I'll be grateful for it. It's just a matter. Is that come compartmentalizing really. It's taking inventory seeing where that fits in your life and the losses that have had are more than compensated for by my family my friends by the role habit in the parsis communities it change to relationships with people on the street to how much i enjoy reading how much film much writing is less to joe you live. I'm speaking with michael j. fox whose new book is called no time like the future and optimists considers mortality and michael. Similar listening to this may have just been diagnosed with parkinson's and that could be very frightening for them as you. Well know in fact you become an ambassador of sorts. For for folks with parkinson's what's your message to people who've just recently been diagnosed as i was talking to manually. Today's few was just diagnosed in like me was diagnosed. Daytona nine Items that was twenty nine years ago. So i did. I said for you. Being diagnosed a twenty nine means for sure no doubt bank on it. Better write it down. It will be here in your lifetime. And how much credit can the fox foundation take for that. I will take not moods. It'd be happy happened. We we are the largest funded research in private sector but never a mission. Our mission is we have a thing. When we first started we about how to structure foundation dissimilar brought up endowments down like e bala money said on this again and said we won't be doing that. Come to go out so we operated on then in the set aside purely motive. Where would you do it. It's your model that each is trying to get this work done as quickly as we can for people in. It's been so yeah. Optimism is is a driver knows every night. You because because there's no sense doing something again at least argue for michael j. fox thank you so much. Be well you to
Making Gay History: Les-Lee in Paris
"Let's join studs, terkel, and Leslie, in a room full of raucous patrons as less the proud host begins by sharing a bit of his club's ghoulish history. Actually the place was called the czar before because it was the stable of Duke Giza. And Which? Actually this beam. This right above your head is where he was hung. History then. History. Exactly. That's why they the we know that they couldn't fill the building down even if they wanted to because it's point of history and all points of history in Paris or not allowed to be changed you yourself. I'm not French. No, I'm not I'm Montreal boy from. Canada. And I've been in Paris for seven years now. What led you to. Paris. Actually, my my business. I. I'M A female impersonator I worked to New York and. Walking in Finocchio in San Francisco at the time. And a manager of one of the big shows here in Paris Saami working and asked me to come to Paris. You abused me so. I. I haven't been back since. Scrapped this art or skill female impersonation remembers a small boy I saw someone named Julian Elton. Actually. Was the first. In America whoever became a big star? He did silent movies with Gloria Swanson. Does the the technique, the theme female impersonation itself. has changed a great deal especially in Europe because the female impressed is in Europe they. They are not like the female impersonators in America nor the tax of Jillian Nelson's of being. As. A boy in the daytime and a female impersonator impersonating at night. The female impersonator in Europe have gone to the extent of taking female hormone injection over them growing their own hair and living as women which I don't approve of I don't think they're neither one the other at that point. He realizes that there is this difference. Oh, they do the American theme at leaves Split Life, it's not a life. It's it's like any any entertainer actually I mean. A clown, the clown. In the circus and personality of his own. I'm the Daytona. Maria life. Now Your Tech. Now, what is your your interpretation you believe in the American tation? Do I think that's the whole lot of being female impersonator. I mean there is people who know me and have seen me as a female impersonator. Who I've passed on the street the day after not knowing me at all here then is the scale they are. Yeah. We think we'd be on personnel of many who we personate celebrated figures actresses or Social feed you. Know I do not I have my own personality which I pushed forward and jokes and I sing in my own natural voice I don't try to. Make anything artificial about the the art of my work is just. Looking something different than what I have the art of allusion as. You. Say you singing your natural voice and yet you're female. So this then. Because of illusion would come through as a contralto perhaps noah tenor, a male tenor voice mail tenor voice but the illusion of seeing me as a girls, it becomes more feminine. Is. Doing. Tricks. The matter of Luge Network. So it's a question of being an art and a skill with the rather than the way of life. Exactly. The Place of south of whichever host. The White Food, the menu looks most Tyson. Need you have a certain way? Well, we chose we we have tried to keep the food. Somewhat French home cooking because the French cuisine in Paris is very very hoti seasons and lots of wine and very fancy very heavy. Actually it's the best of cuisine in the world they say L. O. Myself, I prefer a hamburger coca-cola. that. We tried to keep it very simple and the old homemade bread and something we've tried to kept to go with. The atmosphere of the room because it's all in an old wood and Just ordinary flat walls back to you again less UAE. Your theme impersonator. Why did you come to wipe Paris? While they're more female impersonators here there would be another cities in the world no no I don't think so but I think the Art of female impersonating. Much more highly looked at. Only in America regardless freakish as we'll be. In America Tall. Set you feel more perhaps more accepted I mean you're accepted to to a point if you're an entertainer or an artist, they will look at you and respect you I have very very. High respect here in Paris because everyone knows me as being a female impersonator. Like back home of people know me of being a female impersonator. They have shunned their noses in point. which doesn't make any difference to me because they don't pay my bills and if my life long as I don't hurt anyone and I have my family who respect me most important thing
Political Ad Nauseam
"As much as campaigns want to keep spending secret federal law actually requires TV stations around the country to disclose all the political ads, the campaigns by and those TV ads account for something in the ballpark of sixty percent of campaign ads. Spending a lot of the rest is stuff like Google and facebook ads at those companies actually don't have to disclose as much information about the ads. So today we're going to focus on. TV. Spending the majority of the spending. So think of the United States as a giant game board to campaigns walk around the board they put some of their ad money down this part. Of the country a little bit more over here, and the way they put that money down tells us what places they think are most important for winning the election. If you're looking just at the state level, the bronze medal goes to Wisconsin Sixty, four, million dollars, worth of TV ads they're not surprising. Wisconsin was one of those states that trump flipped from the democratic column back in Two Thousand Sixteen Silver Medal Pennsylvania with one hundred, seven, million dollars worth of TV ads also not surprising Purple State with twenty electoral votes and in first place with one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars America's favorite election meltdown waiting. Oh Florida, my beloved Florida. Now, this is just are beginning calculation. We're going to dig in more, but there are lessons to learn just looking at the big picture the big campaign game board. Yes. So so take Florida this is not a monolithic place. You're going to have super republican areas like the panhandle and then big democratic areas around places like Miami and you might imagine that the most. Cost effective thing is for the Republicans to completely pull out of the democratic strongholds and vice versa. But in fact, neither political party is doing that the whole state is getting bombarded with ads from both sides Daniel. Butterfield. From the Super PAC PRIORITIES USA she says it can start to turn into something like an arms race. So when you see your opponent spending money in a market, it really raises The question of should I be spending money there to to keep up area competitive and if you want to understand why political spending just keeps going up, it's at least partly because of his arms race if your opponents bins more in, Tampa you have to spend more in Tampa which in turn makes the cost of ads in. Tampa that much more expensive. Next thing you know you blue one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars in Florida. Danielle says, the arms race thing is not just irrational fear. There's a real electoral cost to waving the white flag in a particular area. If you're in an ad market and your opponent clears out, that is great news for you. You have the airwaves to yourself. Your advertising goes a lot further in terms of impact than if you have to opponents that are. Driving opposite messages is there like a particular tipping point to that that sort of campaign folks like you gotTa. Spend the twenty percent otherwise. Like what counts as as not being drowned out. Good? Yeah. There is actually a lot of areas some data behind like what is the particular percentage that is required? It's I'd say that's probably more of a secret sauce that I wouldn't necessarily WanNa name on this podcast for you know that numbers, you're just tell me. I I. Know. Roughly what percentage I think is useful is, is it twenty three percent? You got it. But okay. So fine lots of money being spent in Florida but this is not a very specific answer to our question who is the most expensive voter we want to be more granular, which is why we got her hands on a more precise data set. Thank you advertising analytics. This data set is GonNa let zoom in on every single television market in the entire country. So for example, we know that forty million dollars has been spent in the Orlando Daytona. Beach Melbourne market. Compare that to the grand rapids, Kalamazoo Battle Creek Michigan market where it's twelve million dollars and sure there's more people in Orlando but still, how are the campaigns arriving at exactly forty million and exactly twelve million to help answer that we brought in some help Michael Beach. CEO. Crushing Media Michael Runs an advertising analytics company now, but he has worked in the past for the presidential campaigns of George W Bush John McCain Mitt Romney, and the reason we wanted to talk to Michael is his whole job. is to figure out where companies or sometimes political campaigns should place millions of dollars. Worth of ads Michael has all this fancy proprietary software. If you're an advertiser, he can tell you whether you should be focusing your ads on like Republicans, with Minivans are Democrats ride motorcycles or neither. He's got all these different attributes in his computer thousands of attributes for. Anything from certain partisanship to likelihood to buy a Ford truck into those do those specific categories correlate. Yes and no it like it's pretty geographic if you're looking at northeast, Ohio or you're you know. You're in Alabama in the Senate race. that. Wouldn't be a probably a good signal. Reich is like. As owner everyone drive structure. Now, the reason we went to Michael is because we thought it might be interesting to look at how many dollars were being spent on any given swing voter swing voters in theory are people who might be influenced by a political ad. The problem is it is very hard to pin down exactly how many of these people are out there but Michael Software can at least take a stab at it what is GonNa do is go through all these data sets to first identify how many likely voters there are in a particular TV market and then identify which of those has even the tiniest probability of changing their vote and a lot of this calculation is just sifting out the diehards. If you are somebody who voted in the last five, Democratic primaries were every year you donate to the R. N. C. You are out. But maybe your party affiliation switched a couple of times. Maybe you're a first time voter that may put you in this bucket the basically using generic party model and generic it's party not not candidate. Driven in other words, we're estimating voters chances to swing between Democrat and Republican as opposed to trump and biden specifically. But there's still does give us a way to compare across TV markets and when you re ranked the country based on dollars spent per swing voter the markets are not in Florida. In fact, the top five ad markets are all in Pennsylvania and number one on that list where campaigns are spending around ninety dollars per likely swing voter. Is My home television market the region in western Pennsylvania in and around Erie Pennsylvania. Okay. So Kenny you grew up there like what is it? What is the what are we talking about just to be clear I grew up in Meadville which is south of Erie, but it's in the market and like yeah, this is a region with a lot of manufacturing jobs these jobs have been leaving. It's predominantly white its having the. Same kind of brain drain problem that a lot of the other parts of the so-called rust belt are having. But look like I don't know anything about who a potential swing voter would be in the Erie television market. This is why we have Michael's fancy software. It can help us understand who that is. What can we know about the Eerie Market area? How does it compare to the rest of the country? Like who's there? It opened up my magic machine here. Michael Punches Eerie plugs in a few numbers so it's running. Then he opens up a tab that lets us compare the Erie population as a whole to just the likely swing voters. So now I look at in. Eerie. For instance, the average adult is fifty three years old if you just take the whole population in the market. Target, audience if you said. swing likely to turn out is forty seven other words. Michael's machine is telling us that the average swing voter is is six years younger than the average, their forty, seven years old, and the other incredible thing about Michael's machine is that it's also able to spit out this whole media plan for how to reach those people. The machine can name the single TV show watched by the most swing voters. Each week that show in the Eerie area is the OT on Fox football shows or wrap up of the day's games. That'd be fair. that is one of the most watched shows in the entire country. But the numbers do show that in terms of efficiency like sports would be a pretty good way to get your ad in front of a decent chunk of swing voters in Erie Pennsylvania Espn you can reach sixty percent on eerie and a week. Again, this target in this market if the secret to understanding what the campaigns are thinking is to learn where the most money is being spent per swing voter. That place

"daytona" Discussed on The Final Lap
"In on their motorsports side as well as several other drivers in the sport. And you know I'd probably I definitely probably wouldn't be I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them in. So we just keep trying to build this thing together and you know it's I don't run all the cup races, but you know we were able to go to Indie would their their car runs seventeenth burke four hundred, as well as a few races with a partnership with chip Ganassi racing and that help run the. Daytona five, hundred and six, hundred, two of the biggest races of our year and and really hit. Then we hit Indie was the third you know it's Kinda the third big one you know I wish I could run maybe Darlington or something you know just to just to kind of get all the crown jewel then have random before but premium motorsports but it's it'd be cool to do it with this group and that seventy seven car so. never say never were were trying. You know it's a tough sport where we're trying to keep. Keep our head above water daytona is a I mean it's a chaotic race in itself. Now you've got this added layer of of drivers trying to get themselves into the playoffs. Are you aware of that in the moment drafting? I mean that's got to be just such a different experience. Yeah it is You know fortunately fortunate for us and they really series as we still have five races before our cutoff. We have one less around in our playoff. So we have less races so we run more right now. In the regular season so You know yeah. There's going to be some desperate guys but I know that starting up front due to the math big old math equation Nascar has now I think we start you know the first couple rows to abstract addition. We'll have a fast car. and we will you know on the extended decide will really be able to you know I, think. Just drive hard and and try to control the race. I mean there's going to be a lot of us trying to do that and and trying to lead laps and and get stage points and win stages. But you know when when it comes to the Cup side for sure that's a it is going to be. It's a crazy race to plug into theories that I've only ran a couple times.

So we be at totally opposite strategy there we will be safe secure towards the back you know.
Interview With The Host Of Talking Mopars Podcast
"Today, our guest is Chris Albrecht Chris host, the podcast talking Mo- parts. He has built this baby as the number one podcast on planet earth which I like, and he himself is known as the moped hunter. Since our four hundred and fortieth episode was coming up I thought it would be good to do something to mark the occasion, and maybe he'll correct me here when it comes to mow power power plants, I think four forty may be the one I think of I even more than a four twenty-six, even more than three. Really four forty is what I think of I. But. What I really want to do here is focused on mopus and celebrate kind of a special day Chris Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me on rob I'm happy to be here. Totally. So. Chris let some ground rules here. I'M A podcast year. Europe podcast her we either have to work together or we gotta go to like the death and Only one of us can win I'm all for working together. Sound Good Man before I ever got into podcasting. I was a fan of many automotive podcasts including yours and that kind of pave the way for me to go. You know I'm obviously not going to do a podcast about muscle cars because that would be competing with the big dogs but I decided to focus my podcast on what I'm absolutely one hundred percent passionate about which is parts totally at most that was tongue in cheek and it's a big world out here man, there's so much room and. Opportunity and I have made more friends in the podcast space than I can even count and it's always been a good thing. It should be that we're competitors but were really not I. Don't know why it works that way but it works hand in hand and I really enjoy this and I can't wait to learn more here. So Chris let's start with the basics before you even get to the moped stuff. This is our first conversation ever where are you? Where'd you grow up get into? Cars I grew up in Seattle Washington and I currently live about thirty miles north in Marysville. I grew up around Mope ours I spent a lot of my formative years in a nineteen seventy five dodge custom. What we know now as Boogie Van Really Yeah my dad bought a seventy five cargo van a dodge black nothing in it completely gutted and he built it from the ground up you know this shag carpet the bed in the. Back the spoiler, the porthole windows, the side of the crater mags, all the fender flares the whole kit and caboodle along with that vehicle my dad in one, thousand, nine, hundred, I was born in one, thousand, eight, five, thirty, five and my dad bought a brand new Daytona Turbo Z in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five black with louvers and the car has a talking computer in it so it will tell you if your doors are ajar and things. Like that and as a kid, I thought that was the coolest ever being I'm watching rider on TV and my dad's car as a young kid I'm like Oh my God, my dad's car talks to. So ever since I was young Mo parts have had an impact on my life and when I was young, my dad didn't have a par muscle car but I, had heard stories of his nineteen sixty nine dodge dart that used to go. To, the street races with and just have a general good time with and I was always intrigued I'm a car enthusiast I. I, respect anybody that has a passion for cars. I don't care if it's a Ford Chevy or an import I respect all but I've always had a deep seated love for Mo- powers and when I got older, I can finally afford to get myself a couple of projects. So here we are what were your first products? My first Mo Pars were a nineteen sixty-nine Dodge Dart coincidentally, the same color as my dad's name I've found that, and now I also have a nineteen seventy six dodge deal one, hundred short bed pickup truck that I love as well, and that was kind of like my answer to the C. Tens because I've had see tens before in the past before I got into buying my. Own mopeds, construction company, and the owner bought me a seat in. So I've had my fair share of different vehicles but something always dragged me back to mow pars in when I was finally in a position to get myself a couple I never looked back.
NASCAR driver Austin Dillon out of race after testing positive for virus
"Austin Dillon will compete in tomorrow's race at Daytona after testing positive for Kobe, 19. He's currently ninth in the NASCAR Cup series standings. House Gralla will drive the number three car tomorrow and make his Cup Siri's debut.
"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

"daytona" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"One hundred but that track was somewhere between a pile of garbage and like raw sewage somewhere in there. I I hear a phone call coming your way bringing this week. Bring it. I'll go. I'll I'll wind up ten guys. I texted with during the day. I'll bring up the text messages. Were writers are losing their minds about how bad it is and we need to get these wolves. But we didn't talk about these we'll do it wasn't it wasn't awesome but at the same time like I don't know man I've written some really bad daytona tracks. That one may not be the most fun track. The Best I'll give you passing was really difficult. I made on that like really narrow really difficult pass. I'm in but they're kind of like it could be a lot worse. I work could be worse. Good God telephone Poles Lime Rock and grass. Okay okay all right well again. I'm not blaming Ricky. I set all those reasons right. The pit lane was widened sprinklers. Logo I believe there was a lawsuit for going into the Sense Station Stations Stank August for going into the metal grates right. So there's things that they have to do that. Ricky is probably handcuffed by a man on the whoops though if you wanna go to whoops okay. Let's talk about those I again. I wasn't there but dude those first two heat races of the two fifty class. I mean it looks like Mad Max. The thunderdome there was guys to have happened. Jt what was the deal. It's one of those things where you build the whoops right. They're pretty tough and practice but not overly difficult then they wear down throughout the course of practices and then they go into heat race and rebuilt them but they made them way bigger and steeper than all the rights. You have guys that. They're not allowed to walk the track before the Heat. Risks that standard. And you don't get a parade lap to really have no idea you're trusting the tracker that they're going to build it in the fashion that it's been all day. Yeah that's normal. Supercross dynamic one zero one. Trust the crew. They're going to build it the same. So you have the confidence to hit it with the same speed angle everything. Well that wasn't the case and honestly I. I'm wondering if Ricky said anything when he shot off shot off the whoops and almost crashed. Yeah you know laugh you would think something's gotta be done. That's not how they were. And then you see that you did just go barreling in. They're expecting one thing they get another and then it's just pile up after pile up. I don't think that was fair right. hurt I was GonNa say like I'm we're lucky. Nobody got hurt. Guys dig her that. That's a bummer. We were able to see them from wherever you were actually was not where it was. That was Kevin Kelly side track and Kevin Kelly coming in pinch hitting in the fly racing radio show filling in your spot show went well but yes Yeah I sent it to his side of the track and then next thing I know he's calling a rider pile up more than it seemed like there was ten so they were way steeper than they had been all day so I came in there wide open like and also like flipping. Every right yeah. I'm not a fan of that. That's not seen it happen before grant links and had a huge crash landed in two thousand and five and that's dating myself because of that same thing they changed the track you know steepness angles height of jumps without telling anybody and yeah you have big crashes because guys expect one thing they get another and then you just have bikes laying everywhere. Why could salvage yard while Marley? They went up and rolled them for the four fifty. Yeah they had two guys were crashing their brains out it sucks. If I'm a writer I would be really bummed like like even if you're healthy you're just like come on guys like everything we do from getting to the race travel practice. Everything is riding on what happens when the lights go on. And then you have something like that that can derail your like big like really talented guys. Were almost crashing big. Well NO DIFFERENT TRACK. Different track crew. Another reason that's that's part of it. That's where I was going with integration. As I think you could also talk about the split lanes I think Because I was sitting there in the same spot kind of all day and there was a split lane trying to think how to explain it for those who are watching on TV but basically till it was where Tomac and the main aim at kept going outside and was tripling in and Roxanne was going inside doubling in that section of the line that rocks and was taking faster all day. Because the two fifty guys couldn't really triple in very often. It was very difficult so it turned into one line the one that rocks and was taking over and over and over. I really felt like if it was the standard dirt works crew that had been through these sections at GonNa Tampa dealt with the sand that dealt with the section Anaheim to where they continually worked on the sections to make them equal. They would have had that experience throughout the season to make changes. They didn't change anything right. You could see that one was clearly better than the other. They never change anything. They never tried to adjust it and never tried to to make them. And Yeah you got into the race. And then all the fifties we're going to the inside you know and I I think that's just one of those things where having two different trackers and having one crew coming for one race they don't have that experience from those other races just got to the whoops watching right now. Oh Oh it's much They K- it's like a washboard would say just bites US bouncing off a lot of guys down paid off. Rj RJ went down to the first turn and he has twelve guys in one move section when you crash in the heat race. Twelve guys go down. We're going to all right. Let's get into it so rocks and was determined to stop him from winning too far. Rj We each man. He was their grades were there. Oh you mean that. Rj Yeah absolutely. Johnson I thought you meant Hampshire. I'm sorry Yeah Oh absolutely talked. Rj plenty six time everybody pussies probably right. Just you would be I would be. Yep Yeah they had six time They had Six Time Stanton RJ Onstage and Garner Lindstrom The winner of the first Daytona Our buddy largest debt So they had them on stage a rod and the they're talking about bike week and uncle bike is and rj wrote Gold Wing with his dad's ashes to bring him to Daytona. His Dad passed a year ago. Awesome story from R. J. It throw in. He was the pace car driver last week. At Fontana for Nascar for Jimmy Johnson's last race there so it really tight schedule to get to Daytona. So then by what about you jeff stand you ever been into the street bike side of thanks. No actually you're after retired car ran a red light almost died not in the streetlights great message for Bike Week. He's like I understand the important part of the Industry. And it's great for motorcycling going around in the street but not my deal unfiltered classics. Classic S was rookie. Ryan around did not see Ricky Ryan. Holly talked a lot about that race because he got fourth one funny story from Gutter Lindstrom is. He said he won the first one. They actually invited him to their banquet. Nineteen seventy one with the NASCAR guys and everything else and I mean it was a Florida winner am race. It was like breaching a local series. Essentially say invited him there. Everybody's American he's the only European essentially at this bank with all these all these rugged runners. Yeah yeah this is. I mean this is only probably what NASCAR's going around fifteen years at this point it is law and he says I enjoy this and in twenty years I bet you the dirt bikes will be. The motocross will be bigger than the road racing and they were like pissed and laughing at him. Like how dumb is this guy? Motocross will ever be bigger than Daytona. Two hundred right now. We're in the fiftieth and looks like I was right tutor. Just been counting the days. I will have my revenge. I will have my revenge right. Got A calendar with taxes on every day another day closer to going back to Daytona and rubbing it and I was followed. Rj's travels leak out there. That's pretty cool for sure. So why did he drive? Just because he the ashes he said his dad. I think you said his dad had written from El Cajon or somewhere in southern California to Daytona two times so he felt like it was the right thing to do. My Dad's driving a couple of times but I'm still on all right. Yeah so Roxanne was the terminus. Stop Tomac definitely knew that everyone had been given given. Eli this win and and again from the couch. I tweeted that was done for the German was gone because of that. Start and the way the track was and everything else and dude I mean at one point was twelve seconds. I'm pretty sure it's twelve. Might have been more but Eli was amazing. Jt just next level just crushing it. And he goes to work but I think you have to get rocks and credit because he was backing up exactly what he said his pace in practice it was the Kenny Daytona. We've ever seen. He came out to prove a point and he was doing it. And if not for a superhuman second half of the main event from Tomac we they're going rocks and did it. He took away a win at Max Trapp arguably his best track. But that's where I get torn is that I think Kenny should hold his head high. Because that's absolutely the best Daytona I've ever seen from Ken Robinson. But then you also have to look at Tomac in be like Kenny Kenny. GonNa back near the end. I Dunno Tomac jacked up a little bit but still I think both of them have reason that we they're going damn US pretty good too. You know so I think it was. It was a missed opportunity a little bit by Kenny. Because if he wins that he really swings back his way. That's two in a row. He took a win that everybody had given to Tomac. He missed that opportunity. Still Road incredibly well and I think he's still sent a pretty strong message. Like hey dude. I'm I'm better than I've probably ever been. Yeah and then. Eli is probably even. They're going yeah but I'm still amazing and I go. I can go one ten when nobody else can as far as time so I left. They're really not knowing who to give the real momentum to I think both of them have reasons to we. They're excited about the rest of the season. What did you think we yeah? I'm kind of in the same vein. I didn't I didn't maybe right. Jt hadn't considered that. Maybe those last two laps. Tomac ease it off because it was impressive. That can got back to him. I mean it was getting a little tense there in that off camera which was hard to get perfect rocks and got close. And you're just like well. I mean one little mistake through here and he still this off and pick. The final margin was point seven seconds. I know it was a garbage race was terrible but after twenty two minutes two point seven seconds in first and second. I know this garbage An fancy on the fence line getting to watch these titans coming down the start straight together toward the finish line garbage But I agree Kenny try gave everything he had..

There's a lot of things that go into this sport behind the scenes and US three. Try to talk about it and look at it from different business points different viewpoints and teams and fans our Party problem. These are petty problems. Going to Minneapolis in in January or February a major problem going to central Florida. Where half or sorry. Three quarters of the writers live in the middle of a whole bunch of motorcycle activity on Daytona Bike. Week is not a problem for the industry. Going TO MINNEAPOLIS in February. I'll put you in the know category. Okay I just anyone can be like. What are these guys? Talk about passing their parking that affects two percent of the people that are there. The people that are being paid to be there who cares a lot of people that couldn't go areas where they thought they could go because there were different sections. You see it was. It was not as not as easy as you're making it but I'm not anywhere near where maths is either. Listen I'm just asking the conversation. You're both saying I got a cost several times. I was late for ten. Am meeting on Saturday. Because they wouldn't let me get to the stage and they're like you can't go through here. Mike the stages literally where I work. I am the announcer. I work on that stage. You have to let me go to that stage. And they were actually almost like saddened by my attitude. But here's the thing. The announcer not having the right pass to get to the stage doesn't matter okay fair enough. I'm just saying I'm just saying all of that. Could BE SMOOTHER. That was my only point when you're percent integration. But it's not a reason I'm not anywhere near there. I'm just saying the creation of two two companies working together event could be smoother and I saw tons of fans Saturday afternoon tons fans after the race Saturday night and then tons of fans even at GNC today that were like so stoked in the race man. That was awesome last night. Man that was read. How `Bout Tomac have oxen men? That was so cool. Dude I felt like it was positive vibes bummed Al Fans. I don't know how you couldn't enjoyed forfeiting main event. I guess maybe on TV it was different experience but impersonating it was. You're on the edge of your seat wondering how it was gonna be able to respond was rocks and just gone was web going to be able to up like I was watching lap times like it was it was riveting. I've seen some really boring races in my life. That was not one right. I'll put you guys in the know. Category I just I bringing it up. That's bringing it up for discussion. Thank you we. We Owe Cooper web last year. Had he not mounted that comeback at Dallas? That would have been a garbage race. It's just us out this thing. Does it fit into the supercross series for Feld? It doesn't fit in for the teams it. The track isn't what it used to be fit in talking about when jt was talking about fitting worse than it did. I agree okay but but now like we don't like it was so different. It was a thirty minute. Main event outdoors ish like it was so bizarre? It was almost cool. Because you really didn't know what was going on right. Then it's turned into supercross but not as good as any of the other sixteen rounds because of dirt and everything else and then it's turned into whatever we got now with inside inside and no real jumps and like what's a trying to be what's not old school like it used to be and it's not a full supercross it's worse. So what is this thing and then you add an all the other problems and all the other issues and is it time to have the conversation that Daytona needs to go to a home and again you guys say no so we can move on. Look then has always been a compromise. I mean supercross was literally invented to work inside a football stadium and that is super cost in its best state. That's what supervisor designed to be. It's not designed to work on the INFIELD OF NASCAR tracks. That's not the point of supercross so I feel like Daytona has been a bit of a compromise for probably fifty years. However it's still turns out to be an okay event and then you get all the many other benefits. I mean. Look for sport to say that they compete at Daytona. International speedway is a big deal because pretty much every other form of motor. Sports has a big race at Daytona. And I think that that helps put your sport of the map and for the industry to be able to be there for Bike Week. In half supercross beat now the key event of likely. I think is big for this or so yes. Is it as perfect as having another? Dome Stadium Supercross Football Track. No it's never been but it's not so horrible throw away all the other advantages. I mean the level of you say tomato I say tomato debris rating that you were firing towards Daytona on Saturday. Morning was unbelievable. I was I was watching practice going. Oh my God. This is terrible. This is terrible. Cancel the whole thing. Cancel everything and then you got you know. Nobody knows what a park and no one has the record. Dental and security will let you go anywhere you got nowhere to wash the race from thank God we have stepped in like an angel. The last couple years I've been there and dialed me up but you probably had to sign away your kidney for that so I thank you but it just you know we tell the Andrew Booth Story. Yes yes so. Pr Director Four Daytona International Speedway. This is not just for this race but this is the man running. Pr For the Daytona. Five hundred twenty four and every other events and liked I got. I like that guy. Well yeah he likes the first thing. I see him Saturday morning. First thing he says is Steve Her. He was so ready to try to do everything he possibly could to prevent you from feeling this way and when I told him you were not there that level of crushing disappointment that Steve was not there. Good good while I may. I may never come Daytona. And he says I may never come back like I. It's Adra booth has done everything he and he's a Gr- He seems like a great guy and thank you Andrew for me. I'm just GonNa Hammer your event into oblivion just just.

"Bradshaw Western Pike and the gear. You'll see that soon too so yeah really cool video from Glamis Yup Yup also pretty awesome. It's probably one of the. I would say the coolest video we've ever made as far as a marketing video sound pretty pumped on that. Nothing could be the top gun one. Come on great okay so Daytona to fifty s well. Well we'll start it all starts. I Like Hampshire. Can't pick them. I liked Hampshire Daytona too. I think that's really good and but I might go j mart at a four right. Yeah I would probably go J mart. I think he'll I think he'll be on the podium this weekend. I really do Of course he had a bad Atlanta right so When you look at that well. It wasn't even really his fault. You could blame him but I. I don't think that's fair you know. I'm not saying it's our fault either but that wasn't Jae Martin. Making the prototypical Jay Martin mistaken crashing right. It was just really bad circumstances. Anybody else you like. I mean sex mcelrath right sex and CO author or Jamar make those. You're all stars. Yeah I think all those guys I mean. You're you're safe with all of those. I don't think you're GonNa get West and twenty three points with any of those guys. Yep So Just pick your favorite guy basically Who else you like For me I lost a pretty big opportunity with guys like gains So I may still look at him. He rode really well last weekend so even if he gets like a top ten. I would be pretty happy with that. I think you just yeah just think a guys that are really in shape For this race I think the one guy that jumps off the page to me is Liquor CEO. He Rides San Super Well. He's had crazy good. Finish seven to four fifty class at Southwick. Yup so that should be good for him. He was in Florida year round and he's a nine. He's had a horrific o of the series. So he's all the way up to a nine now He's basically guaranteed to be on my team and hopefully he just finds a way into the main event but as I said. The Daytona racing is so much different. Even if you make a mistake. There's so much more time and area to pass at Daytona than a normal supercross tracks so That's the easy one for me that I would say you just have to pick is With curzio short. Yeah John Short. I can't pick in but if you compare curcio short course I would yeah. It wouldn't even be a thought And then I would work hard at the arena across guys coming back Sinai would be an immediate one for me His his outdoor skills you know he's been writing Mex- GP for a couple of years now so a track like Daytona should suit him a little better There's more experience on on a track like that and his handicap super high He is up to can find it. Fifteen So just getting in the main events guaranteed huge points for him. So I think there'll be some opportunities like that I think the guys that have lost some of their value or guys like swallow even afford a race at two now. You know what you're hoping for. What a seventy eight. They're better to really get a bunch of points out of him. That's that's asking a lot So I would start to steer away from guys like him and soups and a few of these guys. That are really paying all hopes. Would you say from Lopes too? Yeah I don't hate it. I just think there are better. Picks right you had ten picks or something yes he would be an easy pick but I think the guys called Renzo and Sinai and these guys are are much higher upsides at this point. Yeah well said I. I like starling Daytona. But he's got a bad shoulder and he's a seven so I I might stay with that and cal. Peters is no longer an all star but his hand injuries got obviously you race arena. But I don't know about this hand right. It's not as main series and all of that so I would stay away from Peters out. Stay away from Jimmy D. He was just a walking wounded right now man. Jt Yeah Gimme short and Gimme Lucretia all day. All I think I think if you went you're all star and you went to Ni- short and of course you know you have a crazy strong team right there. Yeah Miranda's good too. But he's only one higher than Lorenzo and I like even though it's been it's been a bad year for Lorenzo. Yeah but I'll take it out in a sixteen minute racer Daytona. We'll take a hundred times out of one hundred hundred Moran and that's not a fight against my ranch look at the results. Lorenzo's put up over the years. What about Luke Niece? He was good. I I had to go. Look Nice was so good making it out of the heat. I went back from the press box and said as this guy been racing like. Where's he been and he's been in the first two outs. He's been there and he he. He definitely was fortunate That he went away did. There was some carnage. It wasn't super stacked And he kinda just road by himself so Kudos to him but also very good situation for him to be in and the DNC Cuba superstock because it so Guys like short and those guys going down. Lorenzo isn't that crash short was in that crash it was It was just a great scenario for him. But Hey that's that's what it's all about. He put himself in a good spot. You know we do have showing up this weekend. Is Chris Cannon who's a any SC RIPA? Always does well as Southwick. Of course a Chris. Canning is racing Daytona fourteen handicap. I'm out I just don't know enough about super cost. I'm GonNa Watch practice with me not being able to pick John Short. There's a chance can get on my team right but I'm GONNA need to watch him ride supercross. I've I've never seen it and Daytona distract layouts by far the easiest Daytona I've ever seen as far as supercross technicality But I still am blindly. I can't pick canning blind way without ever watching them. Progress check before All right yeah I I think I. It's never easy but Jamar mcelrath and sex in one of those needs to be your all star and John Short. Lorenzo are to me are just locks and after that yes and I. I'm not I'm not sold on I but I I could see it for sure. Do you another guy go ahead and other guy to Agai hearty meals on a outdoor type track. I get it but he is an incredibly good starter Really really proficient starter. What'S HIS I'm not saying it's a good pick. I'm just saying it's something to keep an eye on. I think there will be some people that pick him. Because on this outdoor track. He's a little more open and sixteen. Yeah Yeah it. Rewards guys that are willing to send it for one lap. Yeah So he could qualify well and Beyond a lot of teams Lane Shaw and Zane Merit maybe outdoor guys. I don't know who knows if it is easiest Daytona like you said. Jt scares help me. So yes and he should. You've watched him right..

"Optimism was in the air all day as drivers came through visiting the Marin crew there has been one race though already under the NASCAR banner during Daytona speed weeks one by Eric. Jones joins US right now here at the table they five hundred meteoric welcome welcome aboard. Yeah thanks for me. I guess that was really something last weekend. Have you have you quite still getting your head wrapped around everything that happened and how it ended up when it was all over and done I? I don't know that we've ever seen somebody crashed three times and and have a blown pit. Stop in seventy-five absence still recover from it. No I I don't think we have. I definitely never been a part of that but it was cool. I mean looking back on it. You know what a Neat Story. I mean to tell a wild race. Not One that I thought you know halfway through we were going to have shot down lap and getting back and lead lap and I think our first restart back on the lead. Lap was green white. Checker me run about twelve th and then we're able to come back and win it wild race but definitely cool. I mean anytime you can win races to Daytonas neat and especially the week before the five hundred smooth good momentum forward spinning out what what comes next. What's the approach for Thursday and the and the dual hopefully Thursdays step in the other direction? Lot Calmer I'd love to win it but maybe in a different fashion so you know it's definitely a different race a lot more reserved race. I'm sure with some of the guys who are in the clash and just in general people want to keep their five hundred cars in the race. Sunday. You WANNA run hard. You want to get the best starting spot you can you all start fronting the Daytona five hundred and you don't want to give up those states points either that there are available in the race so a fine balance right you wanna push and you WANNA learn run hard but you gotTa keep your car in one piece too. So it's going to be an interesting balance but I think we can you know hopefully run up front and stop the tweeted a meme on Sunday night from days of thunder? Remember me feel like the forgotten one? I mean what was the kind of the story behind that means we. My Buddy was laughing. He's sent that to me when that was. When Cole trickle wrecked about times I thinking that race and came back and was was waving to the Rowdy Burns whose leading so we're just laughing about it. Nothing more than that. We just thought it was funny from the movie so a year ago went to victory lane as part of a nineteen win season for Joe Gibbs racing it. I don't think anybody would have bet that one organization could have won nineteen times in a single year. Probably nobody would bet on on the ability to do it again this year but I don't know that anybody would bet against it either because this race team has not sat back on. Its laurels during the off season. You've been working hard to get better still. I think that's the big thing with Jj sometimes when you get out front you worry about being complacent and and I don't think Jr's really fell into that trap. Before they're they're never once it really sit on their hands and say. Oh you know we've got good cars. Why do we need to keep working on them? The develops constant different. This year. With the PARTRY's we've got going on but you can still work on some stuff on the on the other side from. Aero and everything else so there's still development going on maybe not the same as we've always had but you know I think we've got great cars. I mean a parts freeze but for a good year for US coming off a last year so same cars and you know hopefully just as much success. Well we won't know until obviously season gets going here but I think we all feel good about having an opportunity to have really similar season. Wish you the best of luck on Thursday. Congratulations again on on your success. In the busch clash and have a great ride on Sunday. Appreciate it Eric. Jones dwelt Toyota out of the Joe Gibbs racing stable. We're joined now by a NASCAR Cup series champion. That's done his share of winning. Over the years that would be Kevin Harvick. Welcome TO MARIN DOT com. How are you? I'm doing great? How are you guys doing fantastic? Has Your all season Ben? What offseason for me. It's you know it's one of those situations where I'd rather have some sort of flow to continue kind of in the groove from a racing standpoint just because there's a lot of development a lot of things that happened during the off season and on those years where I feel like I've been more disconnected from my guys and it seems like it takes longer to get back into the swing of things so we did take a couple of weeks over Christmas and new years but we were actually in the simulator the day after homestead two more times before before Christmas a couple times three times I think before the season and just kind of going through those exercises in lunches and just really small little things with Rodney and and and the guys just to make sure that everybody was still thinking about racing. Because it's a it's a it's a big year in a number of different ways with all the transition coming at the end of the year. And it's still trying to compete for the whole year competitively. And how do we balance that? And how do we do that in? Which which test do we go to? How much time do we spend in the simulator? There's a number of things and conversations that have to be had that that are important. What kind of things can you do to even look ahead to twenty twenty one? I mean nobody has really the cars. Yeah I mean what? What can you do to prepare for next year already? You know really really at this particular point about scheduling. How do we schedule these these tests? And how do we schedule our team to be effective throughout the year? Because I don't WanNa go to a test unless my guys were there you know from a safety standpoint and have put together the race car and from a performance standpoint is. There's really no use to go to the test until we know one hundred percent. What the final version of the car is going to be the rules and are close and I want to do it with my guys just because of the fact that you know you wanna run through the same routine and make sure that the things are prepared correctly and how efficiently can we do that from a scheduling standpoint. That it doesn't interrupt the things that we're doing this year so really the planning and scheduling is the only thing that that I feel like we need to be involved in it at this particular point other than the awareness of where things are at spending time with Kevin Harvick here on our end. Dot Com recently signed a contract extension. You're going to be with Stewart Haas racing for a few more years. What accomplishment saluting you. What are you trying to do here in that remaining time of that contract? Is there something that stands out to you that you'd like to get done well? The one thing that became very intriguing to me was this new car and you know not only the new car but the new in the new plans of engine packages and hybrid packages and all the different things. That are coming the challenges that are coming with this new car in order to be competitive. That was one of them. I think for me. It's always about being competitive and winning races and I like doing those types of things with the group of guys that I'm with you know I've worked my whole career and you always hear guys say well. I need the right people. I need the right. Chemistry I need the right organization. I need the right manufacturer. I've got all those and you know in a situation that I feel like I've worked my whole career that you don't get to experience all the time a lot of guys never get to experience that and in the end. I'm like why. Why am I even talking about doing something different or thinking about doing something different and it took a few conversations? I sat down with with Mark Martin over the summer. Talk to my friend Joe Girardi about the end of his career. Just trying to get different. Perspectives talked to Dale Jarrett Rusty Wallace and and Bill Jordan. Who's a good friend of mine and and so I talked to a number of guys who had been through that particular situation and it's to me the way that we do things now is actually easier than what it was fifteen years ago ten years ago from a scheduling standpoint. And and the way that you don't go test twenty times a year like you used to sell your home more. So there's just a there's a number of things than they. All indicated in pointed this staying in the race car. Now my wife may think differently I think in the end we talked through everything. And and just that's where we landed lots of racing left to happen between now and then including your attempt to win your second Daytona five hundred. We wish you the best in doing that.

You're going to get caught up in something at some point chances. Are you strap into this thing? Knowing that you have more than a half chance that you're GONNA crash at some point and you just hope that it's not that bad and it's somewhat repairable and if you're still rolling you got a chance at it. Anything can happen in this thing so being smart when you need to and being aggressive when you need to key. But I guess if there's one thing is just always know that the racist they'll go on. Cole custer here as well coal you've had a lot of success in the Finnity Series. Here you are now. It's time to to get into a cup car and you've had a few laps already over the weekend just doing that. What's the learning curve? Been like already in your short time that you've been in the car you know it's been just trying to get used to. Everything is the biggest thing I think the guys that moved up this year. We kind of know what makes you be successful and what we need to do. You know it's just a matter of getting used to the cars and the teams and the racing level you know so as as time goes. Take one step at a time. I think it's just GonNa you're GonNa get better as a driver. I know you have been totally focused on a race car. Making it better getting to know your team getting to know the surroundings but have you paused for a moment. Just to kind of think about what Joey was talking about in. That is Sunday morning Sunday afternoon. When you come walking from either the garage or the coach and make your way down pit road to the driver introduction stage to be introduced as a driver in the Daytona five hundred failings going to be like you know you try and block it out as much as you can. I guess just you try and treat it like a normal race. Prepare and do what you can but you try to get one step at a time. I think he's a big thing for me is just making sure that. I don't think you get too much pressure if you just focus on what you got in front and they need to do but at the same time. I'm sure when you walk to that car. After it shows a pre surreal feeling. You've watched this race into your little kid Cole. Gets for another moment or so. Joey I know you got to keep moving along. Listen all the best here. Go Get yourself another Harley J earl trophy all the best all right we'll give it a shot. Thank you very much for Joey Logano Jordan. Well our next guest is one here at the center of racing.

Obviously no I enjoy doing this because only happens once a year and it is my favorite race favourite Sundays a year because of the height because the build up I wake up and I cherish every moment up until the green flag and get a car and I'm to be as folks as I can because this matters to me I mean it just it is Was able to win it in eighteen but WANNA do it again. I want to put myself in that position again. I know what the eyeballs are and what it means to your career and on my family loves this race to my grandfather. You know where he's going to be in Sunday's top of this building sitting there watching every lap I've watched laps with him up there and now to compete in the great American race and just starting. This race is enough alone. You know what I mean to have a chance to win it. It goes a long way. I mean every driver at this level is here because of that absolute competitive fire in the belly you WANNA compete compete compete to be able to be a part of the Daytona. Five hundred is one thing. Now that you've conquered this race is it different. Is that fire in the belly any different? Now that you've done it and you want to do it again. Yeah I mean you want to be too time after you do. It was the first time. So Noah Victory Lane looks like been there and how cool it is just the soak in that moment so oh man shares the moment just to have that opportunity again to replay it every day. I mean it's it's epic feeling I'd go get the Tattoo again. Yeah it was awesome.

My new spotter really did well in the clash close. Came up really close to winning thing need a little help or maybe a little different decision for myself but felt like we'd have about as much as we could with what we had out there just in his very calling the radio. I love that I think it keeps me calm. The intensity levels probably where it needs to be for us to accomplish what we WANNA composition and that's just to be better to win multiple races. We know that we got to win multiple races when a championship mild mogollon. This sport is to win a championship to become the guy that all three I the truck spending cup so we got work to do to do that. From last year we struggled last year so our last race at homestead.

Every weekend if you do that you can get those chances to win multiple racist. You're already in one of the most prestigious clubs of all being called a Daytona.

Ragan as he makes his appearance in the five hundred even after saying he's stepping away from full time driving then we'll hear from Alex Hayden one of our co anchors on the motor racing network. But first let's talk to the front row of the Daytona five hundred. Mike Bagley is on scene and he spoke first with Ricky stenhouse junior growing growing up in olive branch Mississippi. Did you ever think you would be a pole winner for the Daytona. Five hundred. No not at all at that point at some point in my racing career I just I wanted to race for a living. I didn't care what it was but you know starting to come down here. To the speedway races specially with Brian Pattie puts a lot of hard work a lot. A lot of attention to detail and I knew that if I kept him as my crew chief at at some point we'd have a shot at Daytona. Five hundred pole You know he qualified on the pole with him and and two thousand. Seventeen coming over to JB doherty racing. The hard work that they put in. I mean Mike. Kelly go into the wind tunnel with our cars nonstop. You know the guys in the body shop. They'd cut a body off if they needed to Ernie and they got a good leadership from top to bottom of Jodi and Tad and and Ernie and it's just cool to see everybody working together and you know this this off season I felt like hey you know we we might have a shot at this knowing that Hendrick powers been on the front row this thing and winning polls for a long time and you know we we were with the same engine program Ram same bodies and I knew that we were have shot at so. It's pretty cool. So what is it the clicks between you and Brian. I don't know we both want to win. We both Like you know. Pay attention to details. We were both. OCD when it comes to the organization like and things a certain way and we've just clicked ever since day. You WanNa know different than Mike Kelly. A nine to have both of them in my corner You know switching over to a new team has been pretty beneficial this off season so looking looking forward to continuing that obviously this is just one weekend won qualifying run but I do know that. They're working just as hard on our vegas cars as well so I think this. Is You the things that come for for our coverage dory racing team and look forward to you know enjoying this for a few days before we gotta get into the Dole's what about you though so you just spent eleven years at Ross benway racing and this is an opportunity for you to hit the reset button and basically start a new chapter in your careers. We hit resell We hit we hit it with a with a stamp right there. I think you know no different than than Brian and Mike Mike. Mike Bennett. Rouse Fenway. A lot longer than I had and we feel like we both got things to prove in the sports still and you know. We've we've won. We've we've done things but you know you're you're only as good as your last race last season season and and so we got lots of proof and our cup career and definitely as things go our way sometimes and then. We've we've struggled at times but all in all we're here working hard and it's a good way to hit the reset button for sure. What about the race team? You come from a larger race team to now a team that a lot of folks you'll feel homegrown team. It's a smaller team. That some of the big conglomerates how do you fit into that and is a good fit for you. It's a great fit for me. I grew grab racing family sprint car and run run and go-carts with my dad and you know the family atmosphere there. It's you know they they didn't they. Don't just hire the worker. They hire the family and we do a lot of things together and look forward to continued and you know that relationship with with all the employees at the company. And you know it's It's pretty special. I wish Jodi Tatra here They stayed at home this week continuing to work. There's always working hard on our next dill's for for keeping this race team going and looking forward to talking to jody little bit later this'll be your ninth Daytona five hundred. We obviously wish you the best. A lot of fans do as well to seems to be a good time for you and it's off to a great start. It's off to a great start. y'All know I love speedway racing We put a lot effort into it are fast cars definitely help throughout the racist making moves and we still got a lot to learn this. This Chevy drives. Now's a little bit different than than what I've been used to on the speedways but we'll get it out in for sure. Is there an art to speedway racing. Definitely an art you you you pick up on things you learn earn things and I think you're always learning every race. I mean we. We were out there in our practice session and I was learning obviously switching cars. Learn in an you know a lot of what this car is capable of and what its characteristics are but you whether you're learning about the draft or learning about your competitors. I I feel like you're always learning and you keep those things in mind. All Right Picasso goal ever have it like Sunday. Thank you so stenhouse shows he can still get it done at the super speedways. Can he wound up in the front on at the end of the Daytona five hundred that remains to be seen but mike also caught up with the other side of the front row. Alex Bowman well. There's there's something about a Sunday afternoon at February in Daytona tone of Alex. Bowman it's been it's been quite a run for you. As far as five hundred qualifying again you put the Ada car on the outside of the front row your thoughts about getting that Great Star for the Great American race it's always great you know the Daytona five hundred such a big event so to be on the front row. It's really neat. Obviously you WANNA be one spot better. But I think the mullet was the Was the deal breaker there. If I would have grown a mullet like ricky out about a half a tenth better but that's all right we'll take second we just gotTa be one spot better in the race and I I think we have a great shot at it. These Hendrick cars are so good down here. Hundred horsepower under the hood. It's it's great. Our speedway cars are always amazing so excited to get going here in the clash later today and then come Sunday. We're we're going to be up front about the dynamic of this race team. You're back with Greg. Is this year you WanNa race last year. Seems like you guys have a lot of men coming into this race season. Yeah I think so. We've we've got some new faces and everybody seems to be working together really. Well Greg and I are getting along great. He keeps asking me how how to cheat up his box. Stock to go run mill bridge. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA cheat up his box dot forum like like we do the midgets for Chili Bowl and it's a great relationship. We have a lot of fun. There is an art to racing at Daytona. And there's an art of using the draft and the side drafting. Is that an ongoing thing that you as a driver. Try to fine-tune your skills also because you're pretty good I would say restrictor plate race or taper spacer racer now. Yeah I mean I. It's always changing right. The draft is always changing. The bodies of the cars are constantly getting tweets there. Obviously we have a new camera body here and and it's quite a bit different so how the draft is GonNa work is always going to be changing and you're always going to have guys figuring out new tricks and you're trying to figure it out and keep up. Keep up with them. The do obviously is the final shakedown. And then he got a couple more practice sessions but it was that you've got the speed. Obviously now there's one more thing to check off the list. Let's the execution of the great American race. Yeah for sure. The doors are tough when here on the front row. Typically we're obviously really trimmed out and here for qualifying but we'll see what it doesn't Dole and then go from there. Thanks Mike. There's your front fraught row.

"And then one member from the pioneer era nineteen sixty or earlier now NASCAR has also updated the criteria for consideration for crew crew chiefs. Lot of season there in this morning to fall in line with that of drivers crew chiefs must now be in the sport for at least ten years and must must be retired or at least two years to be considered. Now if accrue colpon rule I probably just happened now if a crew chief has so he's not going to be a hall of Famer that's messed up same. See if he's been in for ten years I mean look giving so if a crew. Chief has competed in the sport for for more than thirty years. What is wrong with them? First of all. She's over the age of fifty five. They are eligible legible. While they're still active I would hope so right so no coal pearn would not be eligible. he was a crew chief for five seasons in his five seasons. One hundred seventy nine starts. He had twenty four wins. Seventy top. Five's one hundred ten top tens twelve poles and you WanNa Championship. A- finished second in points twice in those five years. Yeah that's not hall of Famer. They sorry yeah seriously. You didn't you didn't do it for ten years. So that's what we that's just ridiculous that is I mean I think you cannot argue that during that span he was definitely the best crew chief in Nascar. What is length of service? Have anything to do with this. That doesn't make any sense. It's the hall of fame which should be for the best of the best and I think for the full five years he was here he was about the best crew. Chief you you'd have hell one year if you if you're a crew chief for one cup series year and you win a bunch of races and you're the champion. I'd say that's hall of Fame Martin Church. Juniors career was on life support before you found coal pearn. Let's not forget that so I haven't forgotten so so I mean there's a lot of that that was coal pearn. That is ridiculous. I'm sorry NASCAR I'm calling you guys out. That's just stupid. Yeah in just five seasons by the way move the number seventy eight and number nineteen car that he kerchiefed so five seasons led seven thousand sixteen laps. That's a lot of laps in five seasons and for you off the tongues. Well now I had to actually practice I and hey how about this the preliminary entry lists for the Daytona.
