"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.

"And Bill Elliott was more than nine miles an hour slower nine miles an hour. Steve the year before at Talladega nineteen eighty-seven. He qualified at two hundred twelve point eight. Oh, nine miles now right and this year nineteen eighty eight for the firecracker four hundred at Daytona Hey qualified at one. Hundred Eighty four, point five Oh, two miles an hour and see that sounds so strange to call one, hundred, eighty, four miles an hour slow but one hundred and eighty, four miles an hour was way off the pace cavs off the pace and it was a really hard to figure out how bill could run back slow after what he and his brother Ernie had shown in previous years. Stay I think he had all but consigned himself to us, putting in laps on the right track and coming away with whatever finish that he could and he started thirty eight and event but he wound up in bakery land in at that time it was the farthest back a winner had ever started at. Daytona. It was very close to the NASCAR record, Johnny, Mans. And Find? Faulk both started forty third. In races, Johnny and the Southern Five Hundred Bonnet Raleigh they started forty third add one each race evidently Ernie Elliott was still trying to figure out the restrictor. Plate. And I think has a lot of terrific. There were just three cautions in the event. But by the time, the second one came out on lap one eleven bill had almost been lapped by then later Rick Wells. Now, Larry McClure mentioned that bill had come from three laps down in this race it wasn't three laps. It was nearly one lap. He did have to come from a long way back to when nobody thought he would and I think he was one of them. Bill said in the race lead I couldn't draft around anybody. The only thing that saved may was I could beat a bunch of cars in the corners even though they could go right back bobby on the straightaways now on the last lap. Rick pulled to the inside as they went through turns three and four and coming off the final corner. They actually Bayton, buying the little bit. Yeah. They were abandoned and was a great race to the finish. Bill said I wasn't sure when Rick would make his move, but it seemed to me he did it a little early. The only thing that saved me was when he passed me, he didn't clear me he got to my left front wheel with his rear bumper and when you get to that point, the other guy has a chance to draft back by that was the only thing that let me get back by him when it was over, I had to ask who won the race. I didn't know now bill said that he thought that Rick made his move a little early turns three and four on the last lap. You're going to make it. That is true I. Think the difference was at Bill said that Rick did not clear. And that gave bill the opportunity to continue to move ahead on the draft and eventually win the race. So I think that's what he meant by saying that Rick made his move to early. Rick. Said I got around bill for a bit and I thought I had him but he came back on me when we got to the flat part of the track out of the turn that was it we started rubbing he rubbed me and I rubbed him right-back. How many times did we touch I? Don't know I lost count. All I know is that you can't get much closer than and no, you can't. No you can't there was a terrific close spinning. But as we have already established, Rick might have won that race. Had he been able to clear bill? Just behind bill and Rick, at the chequered flag was the three wide battle for third place between Dell earnhardt on outside dill Parsons on the inside and Darrell Waltrip between them kind of being bounced around like a pinball. Not In a good position. Filled took third del took fourth and Darryl took fifth place and Darryl was really bounce back and forth. So that was not as you say a good position now, you don't want to be on the enzyme I think most any driver would tell you don't want to be inside of a Sandwich Three, wide at either. Or Daytona the man in the middle they tell me is always the one that's GonNa have trouble. Five teams were fined five thousand dollars each for having modified intake manifold. So they were maybe Kinda sorta trying to get around the restrictor plate and the teams that were fine. We're the ones it fielded cars for Davey Allison Buddy Baker Cagliari Bre Ken Bouchard and Algebra. So there is. Four Nascar Hall of Famers Y'All. So Hey, Ken Boo Shard but according to Dick Beattie some of these teams had three or four thousands of the niche of metal shaved off the runners where the intake connects to the head. Two of them had three or four thousands of an H. missing from where the carburetor hooks to the intake. One had a crack in the bottom of the intake and one had illegally bored holes that had been repaired. But then the repairs didn't hold. The repairs. Might, not necessarily been repairs. They might have been designed to follow why that's right. This is a call getting around that Oh restrictor plate however we can, but it didn't do it. These teams were docked five thousand dollars each. Imagine a team today having illegally bored holes in their engine about ten times. Five thousand dollar. Fine. Oh. You're talking suspension how? And worse than suspension you're talking about blowing up. Social Media. So Yeah Dick Beattie said in the Bottom. I'm certainly not say that teams are trying to sidestep the rolls. Come Out Dick of course, they were trying to sidestep the roles. I've said is the metaphors weren't right whether it was meant to be or not meant to bay now. Whether it was meant to be or not meant to be old hamlet didn't have anything on Dick Beattie. How about that happened it was talking about suicide. Being, diplomatic a little shakespeare in you're saying bought podcast today we're getting up town we've got culture.

Or wash balls even more. Wines washing the balls, washing the means downfalls why? Did this two years ago with the go bowling thing whereas they used bowling. Okay and like go bowling is this advocacy website. And I'm still up like this is still a thing and I'm just curious like now what is this all about right? Like what is the actual is is this like the the lobbying arm of the bowling lobby and like they got like mad money to throw around I have no idea but it fascinates me. What if go bowling is just like a huge front for like a vampire money or something like because it makes no sense why bowling is still around like theirselves. Old Karst money. It does I love bowling like. Bowling. Like bowling as a few things going for it, it's fun even if you're bad which golf is not. Like you're not slowing anyone down when you're bad bowling, you are just like hanging out there and also like. There is a point re to where you're too drunk to play, but it's pretty far. Though I will say at a bowling alley, the in New, York Patrick clapback and I were at Before all of this began we did see a guy who appear to be wasted enough that he was our king, his bowling ball. Like A, it's around his release point wasn't he wasn't lowering into the ground rolling it. He was following through with the ball still in his hand and just sort of letting it flop off his fingertips as his arm came up, past his head and the thing just sale. Like fully a third or half way down the lane, and then just like smash into the boards like an audible like building shaking like Thud. So he wasn't using any like little like Kitty Ball. He was like using one like the fourteen pound stors, but he was keeping it in lane. Yeah. Yeah. I like the results weren't good 'cause you kill all your energy with the impact and doesn't roll for shed. But it was remarkable. I've never seen it. I've never seen it before that was somebody who needed the educational tools and resources that go bowling dot com. Provided. was trying to clear those oil lions, but he just went too far. He was like you know what this lane needs is character needs texture. This excited like a little bit of tear Warr on this this particular lame. Like the rare tire of a Mercedes.

Of configuration of the Daytona International speedway. So all right to set the stage here. Max Staff and recently said, he thinks that. The. The timeline for the Imola race is stupid because they are only having two days. Instead of the normal three. So that there for the race for the one, they're having only one ninety minute practice session. which is going to be I think it's great because like we were just talking about how hard it is to dial in the tires. Racing Sims kids. Yeah. Let's do it Steve in the shift of Patriot discord pointed out that. Since. NOT ONLY DOES NASS CAR Not Do they're not doing any practice or qualifying. For this whole season, they just start the race. Not only that. No one has raised the Daytona wroval in an NASCAR stock car. So. Oh that's wild. No one knows what's going to happen. That's so strange that are all in Sims than trying to. But that's so. Yeah God's we've never been here before. I. Think. A lot of field has not done road courses before. So.

Big Rig racing. That's what I thought. Trucks were before I wa I saw trucks thing I, thought it was just those.

Catch a Kite 5
"Hey how you doing? Hey well I guess my closet and I are doing just fine. Thank you glad to hear it as you remember a while back we did a call out. Xm folks in prison to send a snail mail updates about what's happening inside prison during this covy at nineteen pandemic and we finally got some responses. Male takes his time coming out of prison. Yep So let's start with Richard Gross. He's in Pennsylvania at the State Correctional Institute at Phoenix. He writes at first. Corona virus. Didn't mean much here. It dominated the new cycle and fed the jailhouse rumor mills also known as INMATE DOT com. That's what you call prison. Twitter actually died. That's what your other co Holes Roussin Call prison twitter. That's right as you know. Prison do produce a ton of Gasol. Richard slider continues. It got everyone's attention when they cancelled visits in stopped. All are outside volunteers. Coming in as a SOP. They threw us some free phone calls and emails. Next handed up masks made by Pennsylvania Correctional Industries the library limited attendance to only ten people at a time as long as they were wearing their masks. Who Ten people. That's not a lot know. The libraries wanted him spots where you hang out at. It'd be like thirty people forty people in the NBA. People walking back and forth people could be on the computers people reading books so yeah ten people. That's only the legal beagles. Richard goes on to say that things are changing all the time last Sunday. I woke up to find myself block lockdown. They didn't tell us why. I found out from a local radio station that the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections had a case of Corona Virus Phoenix prison. They opened up four cells at a time leading eight guys out for about half an hour to an hour to use the phone or take a shower. Commissary has not been delivered but they do our laundry. They come by a few times a day to take our temperatures. This could last a long time and a sad postscript that since. Richardson is letter. The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections reported that one person incarcerated at that prison where he is did die from complications related to covert nineteen. That is with riches. Right though This thing could last a long time and prisons needs to be prepared for that Another guy who wrote is worried about how his prison is preparing. Tyrone Baker is locked up in Nash Correctional Institution in Nashville North Carolina. Tyrone says the most disturbing administrative action. I'm pertains to social distancing. The prison staff primary concern seems to be separating us from each other staff members of making no effort to distance themselves from US quite the contrary to staff is actually interacting with us more intensively and more extensively than they were prior to Covy at nineteen. They don't seem to realize that no prisoner would get sick with Kobe. Nineteen unless a staff member I brings into disease and that's a really good point. One of the reasons I stopped going in before it became a rural was just that I had no idea if I might be bringing the virus in right I mean prison. Basically sequester from society But they do need outside people to function so as tricky okay. We got one more letter here. This one's from intron price. Who's currently at two? Mocha Correctional Institution in Daytona Beach? Florida. Back when he sent this letter things in his prison were pretty quiet on the covert front of. Oh they've reported more cases since then any case. What about this guy is that he clearly respects lady? So can I please read this one? Go okay. I'm writing to you because my lady is a Superfan of your podcast. And she suggested to me strongly to write you guys. I'm not going to write a book but I can say a few things concerning how it's going. The institution is corona free in the staffer. Doing a good job trying to keep it that way. The VIBE is mellow no one is going crazy. There are people who have loved ones who have contracted the virus and we pray. Console them as much as needed. He wraps up. This letter isn't as informative as I wanted it to be but as a start and my girl will be happy. And that's accounts. Can we give her a shout? We can all right Haley. Thanks for tuning in spreading the word about your hustle and for strongly encouraging. Antara underwrite to us. We just got him some cool points. Unfortunately there are prisons where things are lot harder with covert nineteen and we'll be hearing about some of those places to in later episodes in the meantime those of you inside keep in touch. We WanNa know how you doing in there

Motorola restaurants stores started open. I gotTa tell you also from the beaches and it was really odd to see all these people in bathing suits and boats and stuff and headed to the beach. It's it's been so long this kind of an odd feeling actually. Don't even know what to think about it right now. Just don't know configured out though it is what it is right. Also the daily boost from motivation to move dot com every single day. No matter what you gotta figure out stuff certainly happens to make you work at it.

There's one thing I know for sure. Life will always get in the way. They're always challenges. They always have to be managed in some kind of strange way we have to. Sometimes her head screwed on straight. You know something that I learned in the past couple of weeks and I would have been talking to it just a ton of people and this is one of the biggest lessons I picked up on everybody. Everybody has a different perspective of what's happening right now. Everybody depending on what job there in. What part of the country they live in some people are are not working at all. Some people are working endless hours. Some people are still getting paid. Exactly what they got before but they're working eighty hours a week and have no time to do anything that will frustrated. Some people just want to get back to work in the can't everybody's in a different spot and yes a lot of people affected by this virus. A lot of people have been lost in this virus so I've really gotten perspective of that just by talking to people all over the world about how were all writing this same storm. Many many different boats together and so people in small boats and some enlarge votes. It's crazy but hopefully God willing. It will settle here soon. My name is Scott Smith the founder and the chief motivating officer here at motivation. Move Dot Com. I'm sure happy you're here today. There are tons of places you could be.

I got to explore the possibility this weekend. A friend of ours owns and I'll pack a wrench to and as you said. Hey can you bring your tractor over and help me move some dirt around and you have to put some dirt and some stalls can yell at thought out and get detractors. I've got trigger and I I took my track over there. John Deere and I spent the entire day helping her. But you know what I learned. I explored the possibility of doing dirt work in a neat cool tractor all day long and I. I realized I wasn't going to be something I ever aspired to do. As a living not nothing wrong with it but it wasn't going to happen so I knew my homework. I'M GONNA look at my world and say what do I like about my world? What I don't like about my world and okay do I like to attract or work for my neighbor. Well sort of venue. She asked again. I would help but would I try to avoid it. Heck Yeah it's not really my list right now and that's all we have to do with homework. That's it. We look into our life the things that were doing the things we'd like to do things that we don't like to do things you wanna say yes to things. We want to say no to decide how we're GONNA handle it in the future when you do that when you assess how your life is going to be and you just a few minutes every single day. I like it every single day. You want so if you want to. You'd be surprised what happens if you don't do that. You'll be surprised. Ten Years Fly Pie. And You wonder how you got there. See it every day. So do your homework. If you need help remember get the perfect planner. It's in the resource section of motivation. And WE'VE DOT COM easy to find. They're just click on that and download it and watch the video. It'll explain to you how to how to hold time for yourself. Maybe you got some extra time right now you can use it so let's talk about reinventing. Costano a pretty good time right now. I mean the past month has created a nothing short of a massive disruption in our lives. No doubt about that. So why not take advantage of this journey back to normal and maybe switch things up now? This is a nonstop never ending specialty and expertise. I have done this for a lot of years really being able to go come where I am and just become something different when I want to and helping so many people do it so I have a lot of experience in this world and it's a great chance to do it in fact it's been said you've heard the phrase before never let a crisis go to waste. We got one right now right. There's a disruption right now and when something has been disrupted you have a chance to wiggle and move and shake and bake and do everything you WanNa do. Make a few changes so when he wanted some tweaks as we move ourselves back to what is going to be normal here in the future or you WANNA total reinvention. The process is very much the same use the same steps. No matter what you WANNA do. Little suffer big stuff ready number one and this is a big deal and it's usually the one that people have already done but don't realize they've done it. You must acknowledge that something needs to change. Doesn't sound like a whole lot but you'd be surprised. Lots of people are trying to fix all kinds of things and not recognize as underlying change. It has to happen so when you recognize. There is something that needs changing. Listen to your gut into crisis. We're in right now. Lives are disrupted and you're thinking wait a second. How did I get here? How did this happen? Whether it's my fault. Non My fall how could I have avoided this? How could I made it easier and that gut feeling might be telling you make a few changes so if and when it happens again you're in a different spot number to be honest your inner thoughts and your feelings are real. We ARE EMOTIONAL BEINGS. And so that's where it's GonNa come from now. We have to transfer that into logic right but they are telling you the truth. They're telling you something has to change so listen to what's in there really reading yourself. An honor what. You're feeling. Translate that into actions. You'll see what happens. So first acknowledging ing that we really need to make a change in order to get the the impact that we want and to be honest with these feelings are yours. A lot of folks will say yea. I don't know it's kind of running around my head. Coaching and work with people one of the biggest things I do is validate that feeling. Validate that thought. I tested and validated. To make sure it's real and often in the process they go out the way you said it back to me. I can see that. It's this right so honored that clearly understand why you want to reinvent something you gotTa know this now. The wise always a very powerful thing but when you understand exactly why you WANNA make some changes and really feel it. It's GonNa get you excited. And that is a power that will move you forward through the journey. You're about ready to take. We should ask yourself a favor question. I think I got this the book the One thing. What one thing can you do or not? Do that will have the most significant impact on your life. It's an extremely powerful question. You're trying to make a reinvention of yourself because if you're trying to move in a certain direction there is something you can do. It may be changing jobs and maybe starting a business may be quitting the job. Who knows what is going to be. I don't know your situation right now but there's got to be one thing maybe it's moving. Maybe it's paying off some bills. I don't know what it's going to be. But there is one thing you can do that or not do. That's going to have a huge impact and immediate instantaneous. Impact on your life. Don't be afraid of that. Go find it. Why take your time looking forward and dabbling around when you just think about it a little bit and figure out what to do? I want you to set a sprint goal. I thought about this when I wrote this down. I typically will say a ninety day goal so the at least ninety days I went to sprint toward at your focus goes in that direction. You WanNa make the change now. Ninety days is something anybody can do but I will recognize ninety days. It's a longtime particularly in the The upheaval we feel these days. So my first thought was well. Let'S CUT BACK THIRTY S. Push everybody for thirty days and do that and I like thirty days. Anybody can do thirty days so I'm going to give you a little bit of leeway here I want you to sprint for at least thirty but a fixture think three months if you can hold on for thirty days and then go ninety you will change. Your Life. I promise you a lot faster than you think it won't be the all-time

Hi-Performance Heritage - The 1968 Dodge Scat Pack
"WELCOME TO TALKING. Mo- parts high-performance heritage man. The world is crazy right now folks. And if you're like me you're probably sick of hearing about the worldwide. Corona virus pandemic. Here's the good news. There will be absolutely no fear. Mongering Kovic nineteen talk here today. I hope you're staying healthy and safe and I'm here to give you a little escape from the chaos by talking Mo- parts with you together. We'll try to get our minds off of all this craziness. Twenty twenty and talk about what I believe to be the greatest year in mopey history nineteen sixty eight. The year that Dodge introduced the scat pack to an entire generation of horsepower junkies and change. The world of MOPE ARE FOREVER. There are just certain aspects of Mope our history that truly made a significant impact and the scat pack of nineteen. Sixty eight is one of those things but before we get started with project carved the week rev up the show with high performance parts get moving with listeners stories and shut down the show with high-performance. Heritage. There are two things you need to know number one Chris at talking Mo- Parts Dot Com. That's my email number two two zero nine. Twenty eight Mo par. That's my voicemail. Your voicemails will be shared on this show so please keep them appropriate. And so will anymo- par stories sent in for listener stories. I'll even share the emails that I think would make fun conversation on the show now that we took care that business. Let's get this show on the road. This week's project car of the week was the nineteen sixty nine. Plymouth road runner posted on the moped. Hunter Page Friday March twentieth at nine. Am here is the at Nineteen Sixty Nine Plymouth. Road runner numbers matching Bucket Seats Center Council. Hearst four-speed three eighty three and ninety six package original rims and build sheet runs dry scraper. Twenty five thousand. Five hundred or best offer not interested in low ballers condition is listed as good an title status listed as clean located in Webster. New York. Here's the thing folks. I like this car. It's numbers matching. It's got you know some desirable options the bucket seats center console. It's a four speed. It's got the end ninety six package and the guy's got to build sheet. He claims that it runs and drives. Great those are all good things and for twenty five thousand you know. I think he may be a little bit high on the price. The color of the car is kind of like a dark Emerald Green which? I don't believe it was a factory color looking in the engine bay. I see that it's kind of like a flat black. So that's one thing that annoys a lot of people for me. It doesn't bother me that much unless it's a fully restored car and they cheered out on the pain on the engine bay and they went black. I don't really like that. But you know a driver quality card no big deal. That can always be changed later on down the road. The car is cool. It's got the factory tack you know. Obviously bucket seats the console. Those are all great options and ninety six. Who who doesn't love the Air Grabber Hood? Come on and it's got that coyote duster air cleaner. The car looks to be in reasonable shape. If you look at the pictures of the guy posted the car does not look like a rob box. So that's a good thing. I think that this car has a really good bones and for twenty five thousand five hundred. I think there's a little bit of room to work there. I would like to see the price around eighteen thousand. So that's seventy five hundred off which is a fat chunk of change. Let's be honest so you know around. Twenty two is probably realistic. Twenty three twenty four. Maybe I don't know but for me. I think it's a great idea to spend low to mid twenties for running and driving car that you can enjoy so this is definitely a car that I think would be a good car to consider if you have that kind of money to throw around in a moped project because running and Driving Project. Cars are amazing. Why because you can enjoy while you're restoring them or modifying them. Whatever the case may be so. I think this is a great example of a you know reasonably priced project car and it is numbers matching which is desirable. And it's got to build sheets so that's cool so you know. It does have a picture of the fender tag here in the fender tag. Looks rotted so. Hopefully you know with the information on the build sheet and the original fender tag may get a re- pop vendor tag made and enjoy the cars restore it. He's got some pictures of the underside. The underside looks pretty clean. Doesn't look like there's any cancer. Even the trump pam looks really good. So I think this is a solid car to start with especially if you don't want to invest ninety thousand dollars on a restoration this has really good bones and it's always a good thing to start with a project that has good bones because then you're not doing a bunch of metalwork on it and you can focus on the things that really matter getting it running and driving tiptop condition. You know this guy says it runs drives great numbers matching. You WANNA preserve that. Engine so Mike for me. If I wasn't going for a Oh e quality restoration and I just wanted to drive the thing. I just drive the thing you know maybe pull the original engine out and put something else in. That's von and maybe just start with restoring the engine you know if what you're looking for is an OEM quality build start with the engine get that restored and then slowly work your way to the point where maybe it's time to tear apart the car and do the paint and body work. That's necessary to get it. In Primo condition. I liked that the seller shared the Haggerty Vehicle Valuation report that says Twenty eight thousand two hundred on in very tiny apprentices average value. He shared that as like a selling point that prices based on opinion desire ability. And all that stuff. He's asking twenty five five haggerty's average values twenty eight to I still think. Lower Twenties would be a great price for this car. But I also wouldn't have a problem paying you know around mid twenties for it just because it is numbers matching. That's Kinda hard to find in today's market for a reasonable price. And you know some people say you know twenty five thousand dollars. That's not a reasonable price. Okay that kind of money. Well then maybe you should look at something a little bit lesser than a sixty nine road runner decent quality roadrunners and any decent quality be body. That's somewhat desirable. 's GonNa Fetch a lot of money in this kind of condition and you know that's another thing what what is a lot of money you know is five thousand dollars a lot of money because I see a lot of cars that probably were ten grand that people are listening for fifteen to twenty and the potential buyers are lookie Loos. What have you will say? Oh that's a thousand dollar car. Well is it. Is it a thousand dollar car? Do you know what I mean. So pricing and the Mo par market right now is kind of iffy. You see a lot of different people that say vehicles are worth a tenth of what they're actually worth and then you see guys that will say you know. I pay that for car. That's clearly not worth the amount that is being asked. So there's a for every seat folks and you know. Some people got fatter wallets than others. My Wallet is Slim Pickens. It's gone on a series diet as of you know and I say Oh yeah. I would buy that if I had the money. I don't have the money so me saying that. It's kind of like saying yeah. I'd I'd buy a charger Daytona with a Hemi. If I had the money you know what I mean so take what I say with a grain of salt but I've seen you know hundreds maybe even thousands of these cars were sales since two thousand fifteen when I really started doing a deep dive into posting all these cars and finding them and seeing the values and you'll hear stories about guys that go and pull you know roadrunners out barnes. You'll see oh. They paid five thousand dollars for it and restored. The car is worth fifty thousand or whatever? I'm just throwing numbers out here. But that's uncommon. That doesn't happen every day. So you can't really base values of cars on prices from back in the eighties and nineties. Okay it's not the eighties and nineties anymore. We need to stop thinking like that. These cars the numbers are dwindling. Every time a car is found in a barn in a field in a old garage. That's one less to be found. The market's really interesting and it really is hard to predict but I will say that they're never gonna be as low as what the eighties and nineties were. I don't care what happens in the economy. This economy could tank six feet in the ground. And you're never gonNA find a charger for five hundred bucks and if you do get on the show. Let's talk about all right because I like hearing those stories too. I have buddies that have paid crazy prices for really cool. Be Bodies and bodies. You know. They're out there. I'm not saying that they're not out there. But the chances of you running into one for that cheap pretty slim and if you do there's a lot of guys that will triple your money right away. You know what I mean. So if you're looking for a quick investment car. Let's say you find this car that I'm talking about here on project car the week and once five grand for it. Well I'm looking at the car and I'm saying you know eighteen grand would be steel. In my opinion you get this car for thousand and you could easily flip it for fifteen. That's a ten thousand dollar come up. That's ten grand right in your pocket. It is what it is. So that's project of the week. Nineteen sixty-nine Plymouth road runner for twenty five five air. Grabber car numbers matching three eighty. Three four speed. What do you want consul? This things got it all. Let's try to get it for less than twenty all right. That's project car of the
"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..
"daytona" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"Because it was weird to have outdoor national in March and have the rest of the series? Two months later timing. It didn't work for everybody timing. This is because it was weird to have outdoor national in March and then the rest of the series two months later didn't work literally the schedule. That was the only problem I mean they have a race. Oh thirty miles away. Now a WW. This is the same idea. Doesn't work dude. I just I hope people listening or cringing nobody cares about events will call and parking and Adjunct Winston. I don't when you're on your you and your great pass get you anywhere and you do live announcing there and everything else like. Do you think when People Watch the Super Bowl? They gave a crap how the media passes or players getting free tickets. Helen. Breaking out. It doesn't matter. Finish product fans is all that matters. Okay we know that this is more than just a finished product for fans at all it matters otherwise we keep we keep going to. Minneapolis supercross because they loved it. 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..
NASCAR reveals changes for short tracks
"There's a new short-track package in use this weekend. And for more on that here's them. Rn's Kyle rigging while a lot of attention this week at Phoenix. We'll be focused on the championship race. Being moved there and what teams can learn from this race. That will apply later this year. There's another change at Phoenix. A new short-track package debut in for the first time in twenty twenty Stewart Haas racing. Eric Merola is up for trying. Anything that will help. Make the short track racing better. I think it could make a lot of difference. I think it certainly could make the racing. Better I I. I feel like Nascar really achieved a pretty good package for the intermediates to where it's a lot more racy the car. The car's are closer together the competitions tighter and so now on the short-track count lost that. We had that with the two thousand eighteen package where the races were awesome. And we were you know. We're racing side by side and passing the lead and all that and then as we got more downforce The cars were more gripped up to the race track and and then it was a little bit more challenging to pass this year so I feel like the marriage of the two. Now we're having the high downforce high drag on the intermediates but then the low downforce on the short tracks is really going to be good For our season and for those short track races teammate. Kevin Harvick echoes those feelings and says this could help S. HR dramatically whether the tires changed a little bit since two thousand eighteen Very similar to what we had in two thousand eighteen. That was a great year for us at Stewart racing. And and you know for US. We have a different car even been. Finley had in two thousand eighteen with with the Mustang now. So you know there are everybody's got differences chevrolets got a new car Toyota's probably the only one that got that. Got The same car but you know there are enough changes. That's going to be different but I think with the lower downforce obviously with higher downforce. I don't I think it's pretty common knowledge at this point that everybody knew we needed a change on the short tracks for us. That's a good thing because I felt like short track program in our road for stuff was probably the report of what we had last year. So you know I think as as we go forward You know I think there's a lot of things that point to a lot of bright spots for us is that could be positive but like you say you never know until you get into it. But I think it's GonNa it's definitely going to create better racing. What we had last year. T. May in rookie. Contender sole customer is hoping the package makes the cars closer to what the extremity cars were like. Yeah me I'm looking forward to the short tracks. The changes that they made probably for the aero side of it is GonNa help the racing a lot from what it seems like from last year but at the same time. I mean it's still going to be a little bit new to me but It'll be closer to what the extremely cars were last year. So I think I'm really looking forward to that and seem you know what the short-track package is going to be like. I think it's it is something that could probably depth a little bit better to sentence probably gone meal. The more simple Kurt Busch breaks down. Why getting the racing right at short tracks is such a big deal. The easiest way for fans to digest it as at at the short tracks where we have less speed have hardly any downforce so the slower the track the more we're going to be sliding around the faster the track the more the cars are going to stick other than Daytona Talladega. That's different RESTRICTOR PLATE. Rules there so just think of it size of track the smaller the more they're going to be slip sliding around. Just it's GONNA keep us jumping around a lot and I love to see the same rule package work at all tracks but it just won't put on good show that we need to have the side by side is if the short-track package produces the desired effect. Phoenix race. Fan should be in for a treat. Come Sunday
The Rise And Fall (And Rise?) Of NASCAR
"Couple of weeks ago. I found myself at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach Florida riding shotgun in a souped up race car attempting to hold onto my lunch as I- careened around the steep embankments of America's most famous race track at one hundred and twenty miles per hour on this kind of fun on Sunday. Morning in the driver's seat was Matt Humphrey the director of Racing Communications for Nascar. Now imagine doing this though. Two hundred miles per hour with thirty nine of your closest friends. Five by side knows the tail for three hours. You have to be in great shape. Yet and nerves of steel. Every year legions of race fans descend on this speedway for the big event in American motorsports the Daytona five hundred. Were they let you ride shotgun during the race right? Alaska was not writing during the race. Which is probably for the best of the best But seriously the Daytona. Five hundred is known as the great American race. It is one of the most attended sporting events in the country. Come Race Day the Standard Daytona can hold more than a hundred thousand screaming fans and by comparison if you look at football the NFL's largest stadium has a capacity of about eighty thousand but this year the super bowl of racing comes at a precarious time for Nascar the sports governing body in recent years. It has seen its TV ratings. And attendance numbers plummet. This is the indicator plant money. I'm Darius Rafi on and I'M GARCIA SHOW NASCAR facing a dilemma that a lot of businesses face. What do you do when you're winning? Formula is no longer so winning. Can NASCAR attract a new generation of fans without alienating the people that made the company so successful in the first place or is one of America's most popular spectator sports heading for crash? Oh Yeah I went there.

"Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you very much for having me here. It's great to have someone with so much experience and so much focus in motorsports fascinating topic and one that we haven't really had an opportunity to delve into thus far so it's great to have you as our guest to talk about what it really takes to win in Motorsport Competition. Yeah I've been a cop US and since I was. I don't know crawling around the floor home in England and that's where it always starts. I'm in the history of motor racing back in the UK. Goes back almost as long as it does in Italy and been super passionate about it. I remember being in the back of my parents car which was unfortunately not very exciting and just looking at the cars going by and being able to identify them at a very early age and you know I was very fortunate a just down the street. Maybe three houses down. He ran a garage and he used to have the local exotic car come by and he was a Jag. You A guy in. His personal transport was a series one e type an no driving around in mgb. Gt but that part of Essex where I grew up was just the capital of sort of the go. Fast Industry Motorsport we had Ford of boreham world. Rally House came out of we have people developing lots of other rally causing a gyco Terry Hoyle. Who's one of the biggest Ferrari restoration guys? He was just down the street and Early Memories of walking out on my driveway and seeing a Ferrari Daytona spyder sat there because he put up at the wrong house boy. That radium. Prince early does it. That's a that's a heck of a leader grow up yours. Yeah so for me. It's just been a passion and it was natural as I grew older and got pushed through the school system that when I started thinking about what he's a career to be. I wanted to be a race engineer from very early on and and really targeted where my education was taking me and I've been fortunate to be able to accomplish that and more so I've been very privileged. Well it's interesting that you had identified very early on what you wanted to be when you grow up as they say what about university I guess she went to university in the UK. There was only one place really to go in the UK to study car design. There was no specific courses. Like they're out today as a place called Love Brought University of Technology at the time and they had a course automotive tech college in the UK. It's like the equivalent here would be. Mit similar like that and they had a course automotive engineering and design twenty two spots and typically three four hundred applicants for those twenty two spots and I managed to snack one of those were. Ah Suspect took some talent I have to say. I'm not that rocket scientists the most brains guy at school. That's not me but I'm practical. A hardworking person and Israeli sort of dedication and sheer effort. That got me through the university system and I. I remember at the time because I I didn't go a conventional route. I didn't do the typical. Uk Root of which time was o level exams up until sixteen and then a level exams are ordinary and advanced level and chose sixteen to leave school and go to an engineering college. So I learned a bit of practical engineering. Learn how to work my way around a machine shop and I learn more about the hands on approach of engineering and I remember going to the interview. They win the head of the course. Lovebirds said you know. I don't think you're GONNA make unprepared to off your place but I don't think you're gonNA make it. I don't think academically you're strong enough kidding. And I remember seeing him three years later because he was actually four years later because he was my noise and vibration lecture. So I mean you look to me so that you still haven't said Yep so hey you know so much for his noise and vibration to obviously didn't have much resonance did it and good puns in there as well. I got three the my undergraduate degree. Well and the time I was trying to find a spot in major racing and it's not straightforward to come out of university. I mean you think it's not actually you know nothing. I wanted to be in Formula One because pure and motoracing and and you want to go work in the industry what you want to set your sights very high one for me was where I wanted to be. I wasn't able to find what I wanted in. An opportunity came up to actually further my education and two master's degree and so that's what I did. I moved over to the Cranfield Institute of Technology which is purely a postgraduate university. I spent a year. They're studying really similar but more advanced automotive engineering but I had an opportunity to work with a race car. Constructor called Lola cars no longer in business. These days time they were really starting to get into trying to project. How fast racing car will be before actually hit the track answer? My master's thesis was based on creating a mathematical model of racing cal and driving around the track and predicting the lap time was going to be. So that was complex math Tony when computing was not necessarily as advanced as I was writing the code in Fortran seventy seven. She's a language for probably nine hundred hundred of Sanskrit of But it was based around Lowest Formula. Three thousand car that was racing in Japan and Zucca circuit and Mizzou's circa in Japan is one of the most challenging not just from a driver's perspective but also from an engineer's perspective. And I challenge I had to do is to try and define the racing line or what line is the cog taken. A good driver will naturally find that but asking a computer is not straightforward. But that been some interesting work done by some guys at NASA which was looking at rocket trajectories so I started applying some of the algorithms. They were using on how to shoot a missile from point. Eight point being depending on what characteristics? You wanted that mistletoe. Shortest distance falsely speed. Whatever you could tune the algorithm so I played around with that and ultimately wrote a program which was very successful in predicting how fast the car would go low to use that quite a bit and even when my contact at lower ultimately decided to go a different direction. He took some of that knowledge with him. I remember getting a phone call. Saying Hey. I'm heading out to Miami to do the Miami Street race if I send you a track map. Can you for Jewish? And this was really before email and all the rest of it. I remember working through the night for several nights putting it on a three and a half inch floppy drill off here and Fedex ing him at the hotel and this was before they ran and then I got within three or four tenths of a second of the qualifying time. That is phenomenal. Let time programs today are fairly common. We use them all the time and you can write one in xl but back then none of these things existed even trying to create just the visual image of what the lap time would look like the speed tries against distance all time. It was a big challenges right in the actual program itself so for me just watching the way motors has embraced computing and the science behind. It has been a fascinating experience.

"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. On some thank you guys Kevin Harvick more from Daytona five hundred media day coming up checkout dot com for a podcast series called the tough trucks of Nascar Twenty five years and still trucking.

Oh Man I always get excited just a you know last week when we got here and you land and you're in Florida and the weather's nice that's always a nice part and then you know you see Daytona every time you land right behind the racetrack. This race track means to our sport. How exciting it is just to be here. I always remember my first eight hundred five hundred. Starting Cold's GonNa obviously no this feeling here soon as well you know. I remember walking. How onto pit road and I was with my dad. See My car lined up for the great American race and how neat that was. There's a special feeling now Iraq twenty laps into the race but it was an amazing feeling just to start it so you can imagine what it was like when we want in two thousand fifteen for me putting so much into this race in what this race means to myself cellphone to our sport that when you know that feeling and what.

Joey what would you tell Cole? As far as the one thing that you want to keep in mind once the green flag drops in Daytona five hundred. What would be the words of advice or wisdom do? He's never out of it. And I guess Eric Probably proved that to everyone last the last week of the class. You're never out of a superspeedway race. There's just so much stuff that can happen. 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.

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.

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.

We're going to hear from David. 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.
