"Going to be some tender back in there. For sure. And then you take in the bristle and give it a ramped up more yet. So, yeah, I totally agree. I mean, these guys are feeling desperation too. I mean, I can see it high. There's nervous drivers. There's drivers that their cars right now are not for formal like they should be. And it's not going to fix a fixed self next week and they know it and the nervous about it. They're just hoping they can write the ship and get back on track and one of the guys I'm talking about when it comes to that is Kevin Harvick. Harvey has been really, really good at hearing Arizona. All the short tracks. On the hit, he went to march to Virginia last year and had a travel race and missed the chase. Could not believe that happened mister playoffs, but he made it this year, but he is not looking real good, though. So we'll see what happens. All right, it's been truly an honor to have you on Rusty Wallace. NASCAR Hall of Famer, I truly appreciate the time. And we will be listening to you on MRN in the coming weeks and as you cover the playoffs. Thank you so much. Hi, guys. Thanks very much. Been great being on your show. All right, thank you for Rusty Wallace and Ryan Blaney joining us yet again as an encore interview. They didn't really have to do much to have that happen. But we thank them anyway. Thank them for their time previously. Right. Yet again. So checkered flag, flying on this show. This has been the final lap weekly catch us next week right here.

"Some of the other racetrack to give him a knuckle sandwich, you know. But nowadays, there's just a lot of lot of art unit happens. But these drivers are just the cars handle different, the engineers, there's a lot of engineering about that. There's a big time penalties on have a scuffles at the racetrack. So it's all different. I would say nothing bad about it. It's just way different than older days. We mentioned the sports book aspect driving fans to the sport. But there's a new ownership blood coming into NASCAR. You got Michael Jordan and Pitbull and even call it racing, Ganassi exiting. That's got to put more eyes on the sport as well. Especially when you have some big stars like Michael Jordan, you guys guys like this ball, those two, that you mentioned. I mean, I don't know what the impact spend yet, but it's got to be on a positive way, I would think, you know, and that these guys are really acting like they love the sport. It's not that they just want to come in and try it, have some fun with it. They're putting a lot of skin in the game. I mean, Michael Jordan, he's decided to go to two car teams out Kurt Busch to drive the other car. He takes a lot of money and a lot of sponsorships to do that. And then you got Pitbull, you know, who him and his ownership guys decided to completely buy it out shift and ask you what she was a huge purchase. So they're introverted along all. Definitely and it's good to see that kind of stuff. You've had a lot of awesome paint schemes throughout your career. Obviously making the black and gold very famous. So what are a couple of the paint schemes that stand out in your mind that just really look good and you felt proud stepping into? Well, the black and yellow car that I had been nicknamed midnight, that car won a ton of races. That paint scheme was on many different cars and it still wanted.

"App weekly. My name is Kerry Murphy a longtime NASCAR media member in syndicated radio host of all things the final app. Our co host for the show is Tobey Christie, founder and editor in chief at Toby Christie dot com. We've been talking between segments here and there's a crazy amount of news going on. What's going on? I mean, it's just nuts. Seriously, there's been no off season. I even joke with a few PR people. Via text messages this week just kind of checked around some of their stats and whatever's happening. We're all just joking. There's just been no off season. Lots of coffee has been consumed. I'm coffee addicted now, by the way. I use said, which was a thing that never happened, and I swore it would never happen. The only cup of coffee I ever had all year long was when we'd go to the NASCAR awards banquet I'd have coffee during the morning brunch lunch thing. I'd always go sure. Give me a cup of coffee. Well, now I'm addicted. I can't stop drinking this coffee. That's great. Good morning. I get up. I make my coffee and I get to work and welcome to the real world. I feel old now. I've been drinking it since I was young. It's not really doing crossword puzzles next. All right, my routine is, and I'm not kidding, I guess I realized this this morning, I drank four cups of coffee. Oh God. One giant cup, but I brew four and it I only have a little bit left. So it's a three and change. How much time do you spend in the bathroom? That doesn't affect me there. It cuts through you, man. How do you do it? Not no, not once you're used to it. Okay, so it's just the early yes. And then in the afternoon, I have a big giant iced coffee. Man, I gotta have my iced coffee in the afternoon. Otherwise I crash hard. So see what I did was we've got a keurig that we've had since we were married and we've used this. You are destroying this planet with that thing. Just hold on, hold on before. And decided, okay, I'm gonna go all in here and to kind of dip my toe in. That's the thing I had to choose from. So I'm going through this first pack that I've got and I'm addicted. So now I'm going to have to think about what to do going forward. That was my way of checking to see if I would in the become addicted. And I'm addicted. All right, nicely done. Yes. Nicely done. Hey, lots of testing going down at Daytona. You know that next gen car. I don't know if you've heard about it. And it's been pack racing. They've had crazy windy conditions there. It's been fun to watch though on the YouTube feed. That's where I've been catching. That has been. It really has been. There's been a lot of good action on there and NASCAR has been holding some pretty good amount of people streaming that at one time. Yep, yep. It's good stuff. It's good stuff. You're so used to watching the television broadcast, where it's constantly cutting to different angles and views and all this stuff. So watching one shot or a couple shots is a little weird. It's like something happens on the track. What happened? Oh, I don't know. You can't go back. There's no replay. Just see the pace truck going out there. I'm sure something must have happened. Right. But they have added garage interviews. So that was kind of cool. Saw Joey Logano and Corey la joy and Dale junior. And it's always staggering when it happens too because I think Alex weaver is the one that they've got out there. So the on track action is so far away that the cameras they don't have microphones up they're really picking it up. So it's just kind of like a drowned out. It's there, but it's not aggressive. And then she pops in with the microphone interface, and it's like, or you're in the garage. Okay, wow, okay. Yeah. But no, it was all brown at lunchtime yesterday. Lunchtime here in the West Coast. I was just eating. And like you said, all of a sudden it woke me up. Wow, okay, we're gonna talk to someone now, great. Something's happening. But no, it is awesome. It's been great to have. This is something we've been missing in this sport for the last few years is the off season testing. I know testing is not super exciting. It's in the off season. It's great. It gives you something to do. You can see that your desk, listen to race cars go around, and these next gen cars sound great, by the way. They are loud. They are alive. Very loud. Okay, so I asked you for some notes for another reason, but I figured I'd throw them into the script here for those that are just listening to us. Maybe they're new to the sport. They're checking out NASCAR. They're not sure what's going on with this next gen car. It's too much for them to take. So at a basic level for a casual fan, they're just getting in. What is the NASCAR Cup Series next gen race car? Well, so it's a brand new race car. Things are totally different. It looks different. It feels different. More than just a number shifting. But the big bullet points we have here, you're going to have composite bodies. So what these are are more like a resin type body instead of a sheet metal body. So when the car hits the wall or something, it doesn't damage it where you can't repair it. It doesn't cut down the tires usually. You're usually able to compete pretty well for the rest of the race. Kind of like what we've seen in the Xfinity series the last few years. So yeah, it was a little no longer be fabricating their own sheet metal and their own bodies. So this is interesting. They gotta hate that. I'm sure. Yeah, there's gonna be a lot less games being played, although I hosted a space on Twitter with Brian Murphy of sewer house racing. He says, once they get things figured out between these teams on how these things work, they'll figure out ways to toy with it a little bit. But it will be a lot harder. There will be a much more of a box. Obviously, single lugnut wheels, that's something that's been a big deal that people freaked out about. Take it out, man. Lots of freak out over this. Yeah, but it seems like it's gonna be totally normal to me, but it's gonna be cool. Again, talk to Brian Murphy about those and there are nowhere and tear to be really seen or heard from to the test so far. So it seems like the issues everybody was asking if it was going to be a problem with the aluminum wheels as a non issue. So that's good. Yeah, totally. And one thing I found out this week, just, you know, watching the feet I'd had no idea this was here. Rearview mirror camera, which I guess is optional, but why would you not have it?.

"Finally when it mattered. So and at that point, everyone knew it was going to rain. We were all racing to the range. So everyone was running hard to try to put themselves in the right spot. So he did a great job. I'm happy for him and that team. That's great for that new team coming in. In their first year and getting the win, that's awesome. And for me to be there for that. It was very cool. Because he was there at my first couple in Pocono years back and I was very, very thankful to be there and celebrate with him for his first one. So special moment. And I would definitely have fun. Awesome, I bet, I bet. We're on with Ryan Blaney, and one thing that you do when you head to victory lane or right before victory lane, you hand your flag, your checkered flag over to a Blaney fan. What's it like to see their face just light up? I started doing that. I think 2017, something like that. It was right when they started interviewing us on the front stretch. My grandfather race. We used to not do that. We used to take checker flag and you go right to get your ring. But now they interview you to get out of the car in the front stretch and it's like your first time with face to face interaction with somebody and like three or four hours. So it's really neat to be there with the energy of The Crown right there. So that's super cool to be up close with them right after you win because you're really pumped up. They're really excited to and so I just want to say, all right, what can I do to show appreciation and it's unfortunate to finally get one checkered flag and I can only pick one kid out. But just try to show our appreciation for the family of taking their kids out to the race, you know, trying to build young race fans because I remember being a kid like that to stands when I was young. And that really is watching and seeing the excitement on their face. Especially when they get the checkered flag is really makes my day. And actually it's been cool I've been able to meet some of the families afterwards. The kids I've given the checkered flag to you. So just trying to make a memory for those kids that hopefully something that they'll think about and they'll stick with them for a lifetime. They'll think back on that moment like, man, I can't believe that was so cool and I was a kid. I got to check if I got to race. So I don't need that flag. I get a trophy. So it's pretty easy for me to give away and try to make a special form. Absolutely. Anytime we have Ryan Blaney, we got to talk some Star Wars. Disney+ announcing like ten shows coming? Or is there any particular one you're looking forward to? I have to look and see what's coming. I've been so busy but this is what the count has not been really active here. And I've been trying to focus on brief and it's great, but that's something I need to get on. But I'm looking forward to seeing what they got. You know, I mean, there's a lot of exciting things coming out just from the marvel and Star Wars Disney side of it. I feel like. So there's a lot of cool things coming out and I try to keep up with all of it. It's almost sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything. I got to catch up this winter on some stuff I need to rewatch or watch and there you go. That's a better question for next time. That'll get me on the show next time when I actually look it up and we can talk about all that stuff. All right, perfect. Perfect. Hey, next year, you had a chance to drive the 2022 next gen race car recently. What's your impression of this thing? Yeah, we just had the role to work up days right after the race, but that's the Monday and Tuesday after that Sunday race. And it was cool to go to a track where you just ran on in the current car and run the next gen or you can kind of can really pick out the differences of it as discretion your mind. And so I thought it was really nice. You kind of worked through some bugs in it. The F of X are kind of clean up. You'll have that with any kind of new car, just some quality issues and parts and stuff like that, the best way to kind of go about it. But I thought once we got rid of it, the car was really great. I thought it ran also on those road courses you can hustle the car really good. They just handle a lot different just the whole base feel of the race car with it being a completely different type of car. I mean, there's no truck on the track bar. It's this new car's independent rear suspension. So we've never had the gearbox the way different. So everything is just drivers learning something new from what we've done for a long, long time. So but I really did enjoy it. I look forward to testing it more in the off season here. I know we have some lined up and can't wait to get some more laps in it and see what it's got for next year. All right, wrapping up our time with Ryan Blaney here one more question I gotta ask you about your Ryan Blaney family foundation. Tell us more about that. Yeah, I started my foundation a couple years ago and two, three years ago and so we mainly work with the Alzheimer's association and some person with our fan and the grand my grandfather had Alzheimer's. Pretty bad and passed away from it and it's just a bad disease to watch someone go through just some of mine is just deteriorating over time and it's hard to watch as an outside perspective, but it's really hard for that person to go through. Not recognizing your family, not knowing, just slowly losing grip on kind of reality and what something simplest to you is just not simple anymore. So we wanted to figure out what Alzheimer's association kind of help out that, whether it's raising awareness or funds and so that's been a lot of work, but it's been really humbling and neat to meet up a lot of people. And this year we worked with UPMC. University of Pittsburgh medical center up in Pennsylvania. Deal with brain health through our concussions, things like that. So it's been a lot of fun. We're sending two fellows to school to kind of get their training to open up their own facilities, whether it's in the Charlotte area or wherever they want. So a lot of brain health that we're working on and it's been really neat to meet a lot of people that have been pioneers in that industry and a lot of stuff kind of carry over to our side of NASCAR concussions and things like that and symptoms and after we work towards helping that out. So it's really neat. You can find out a lot about it if you go to the Ryan Blaney family foundation website. And yeah, we love to both everyone check it out and we'll keep on going with it. All right, appreciate the time once again, where Ryan Blaney, you got another notch on the final app scorecard here between you and Justin Allgaier. I appreciate the time and good luck throughout the playoffs..
DawgNation's Mike Griffith Makes Wild Accusations About the Potential of Georgia Football
"Going to read you a comment. That danny sheridan gave to us. I think it was about a week ago. Danny was picking the final four and he georgia to go to the final four this coming season and he said i would say the fourteen would be. George think georgia is loaded in. Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star. I mean my goodness talent is everywhere and now it's just a matter georgia finishing the job on football field. Which brings me one more comment and we don't we. Don't go out looking at other shows to bring you information. We take it from our own program. And i believe those two weeks ago booger mcfarland. We all know boogers credentials. He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.
20 Years Later: How Dale Earnhardt's Death Changed NASCAR Forever
"Ryan mcgee. Espn daily's chief. Paint trading correspondent. Thank you for joining me man. That's me man when i started. Espn a really really long. Time ago and i had this accent there were like. Hey you know about nascar right. I go yes you do. More than just know about nascar ryan you have now reported and narrated a new film for east sixty and it's called intimidator the lasting legacy of dale earnhardt. And i wanna talk to you about it today because it's a lot. It's about a lot more than how transcendent dale was on the track. It focuses on how he radically changed. Nascar's culture when it comes to safety but before we get into that. I do want you to just kinda sketch out for us. Who dale was for the uninitiated here and what made him such a towering figure in the nascar universe well and it's interesting because he's been gone twenty years i mean nascar's more than seven hundred races without del earnhardt and so for those of us of a certain age the idea of having to explain him and and why he's such a big deal seems insane but we saw what the last dance. The last dance ron's and half of twitter was like well. He was good. But you know this jordan character. Yeah we should know about it and we were so offended but bless their hearts. They didn't see him play. And so in this case you know. You have an entire generation twenty years exactly of sports fans who didn't see our heart race but it wasn't just about seventy six wins seven championships and also was just about the presence in the room. Always say with dell earnhardt if there was a thousand of us in a ballroom and we're all looking at a stage and he were to come in the back door when none of us were looking. We'd all instinctively. Just turn around because the air in the room changed. There was just a presence in a way that it carried himself and conducted his business and the intimidator thing that was legit. Every time i will. I know him. And every time i was in a room with him there was a little part of me. That was just trying not to say something stupid or pass out so on the back of the baseball card ryan so to speak. What are the accomplishments. That people should know about what dale did. Well the seventy six winds are really big deal but the seven championships and seventy plus year. The stockcar racing only three people one seven championships the checkered flag bands around their heat waves to them. That checkered card. His greatest success was on the super speedways. the taliban soup speedway and daytona he one thirty four racists and though tone national speedway thirty four nella one of those was the daytona five hundred and that was part of the appeal for him was even though he was this one tough customer and the man in black timid and all those things it took you twenty tries to finally win the daytona five hundred lawson in heartbreaking fashion multiple times twenty years frustration. Taylor that program names on the can't take it off. I guess i love it. He just he was in every man but he also of superman and that was always the appeal and outside of that ballroom. Full of the sports powerbrokers ryan. What was his status. Like regionally among the nascar faithful. How would you begin to describe what he meant to those people. What i hated it. Because when he came along in the late nineteen seventies. and you know it wasn't disrespect. But he didn't back down from. Richard petty from kailua from bobby allison from david pearson from any pissed them off the couldn't stand him and he would recommend a short track race. In martinsville and afro richer. Penn is electric. Listen kid you can't do it like this. And he just kept doing his way.

"Noah gregson is an attempt to make his first ever career cup series. Start at the daytona five hundred this year for beard motorsports and he tells us how and when this whole thing came about well.

Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented.

NFL: Two head coaching hires in 10 minutes
"The draft before the combine. We still have several weeks. NFL Action to go. We have some new coaches join. Join the NFL. As recently as this afternoon and joining me to talk about that and the playoff games is our friend with the Atlantic Lindsay Jones Lindsay. How are you? I'm good oh how are you. I'm good I thought this was going to be kind of a quiet day in the NFL landscape and then suddenly to head. Coaching hires in the matter of ten minutes. This morning Matt rule going to the panthers. Joe Judge going to the giants after Mike McCarthy was named cowboys coach earlier this week. So let's start with today's news. Let's start with Matt rule who gets a seven year deal. What sixty seventy million dollars? A lot of money. Samat rule to leave Baylor and come work for the Carolina Panthers. Yeah I mean it sounded like one of those Offers you can't refuse type of situation where I think he's GonNa have a lot of power he's also got a lot of money and A lot of years to do To do what the panthers to do. It's not quite a Jon. GRUDEN ten years one hundred million dollar type of deal but David Tepper is showing that he is not afraid to spend a lot of money to invest very heavily in his head coach and head coach You know when everything else that they're doing I mean they're building a brand new practice facility. They're building the indoor facility. I mean they're spending a lot of money Darren Charlotte and you know I. It was interesting that there was kind of story that also came out. The rule wanted to kind of bring that offer back to the giants Because he was going to interview with the giants as well but The giants said okay. We're going to hire JOE judge instead of paying Instead of hiring not rule it six years seventy million dollars or whatever it is so Really really interesting. Move there Bell what are you. What was your initial? Take on it. I guess and then I'll I'll go with yours it. I think it's interesting in that. I'm not gonNA pretend that I am someone who has watched every Baylor game this year. I've watched a little bit and I've read up a Matt Rule Essay coaching candidate. Now for the past two years of course rule was very very nearly the jets head coach last year before jazz blocked him hiring his own offensive coordinator which point he stepped out of that process and they hired Adam Gates move. That has worked out brilliantly for the jets of course in the afterward with that rule. I think there are certainly elements of a a run first attack. I think he is not someone who is seen as a a progressive offensive minded. They've run EARNHARDT Peos this year. He has seen that as sort of a you know. I can't deal with the devil to run as much of the rushing game as he wants to and I think that's very interesting given what we have. In Carolina we have Christian McCaffrey who's entrenched is the best running back in football at the moment. We Have Cam Newton who I think you know certainly seems like this offer. This higher would probably be good for him in a way back for him in a way. Oh you know good in that. The run first attack does seem to favor can if he can be a player who does impact game with his leg. Still which we don't know coming back from injury but it's pretty clear that you know if Matt rule wants to move on from Cam Newton. He's going to have plenty of time to move on and higher higher or or or or sign up backup quarterback or assigned a young quarterback or draft a quarterback and give that guy a time to develop so I kind of feel of two minds. It's for this when it comes to the biggest decision for the second the second biggest decision the panthers have to make this office and I don't know how you feel about do you do. What does this mean for you for Cam Newton? Yeah I I think the first thing is just how healthy is he gonNA be. What's his time? Line going to be like their That's the thing that just is over everything and has been over everything for the panthers for going on two years now I still think he's GonNa be back and and I've been I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few few days I've been writing about brees and Brady and thinking about all of the potential quarterback moves that we're gonNA see the offseason and well this time of year. It's really fun fun to speculate about. All the potential moves and this year is more interesting than any quarterback off season that I can remember and maybe ever certainly certainly as long as my nfl institutional memory is But ultimately moving on from a quarterback and guy who's taking you to a super bowl who's won an MVP Without some sort of really solid plan in place is it's a really hard at it. It's so rare that it happens so ultimately I think he ends up being back. I think he's there's so many things that you can do with him if he's going to be healthy but that if he's going to be healthy is just the biggest question that's been out there and We're not going to know that for a couple abundance I guess the good news is that they don't have to make that move or decision on Cam Newton. Today I mean they they really can can wait a couple of months but ultimately. I think that there are better team with him. And the options outside of him are just not that great. I mean. There's some intriguing names out there but I just think I don't think you're GonNa do better than Cam. Newton Can A new. There's even seventy five percent of the quarterback that he was in two thousand fifteen when he was at his peak. Yeah or even the guy who was playing well in the first half of two thousand eighteen. I think that can traffic is still really good There's a definitely interesting sort of dichotomy with that rule or I guess not a paradox. In that he is a very conservative. Very first coach. But we've we've seen in the report effortless. Hire one of the reasons that the panthers were able to Land Matt run into the panthers was because they're making a huge investment in sports science. You mentioned the practice facility being built there. I mean it seems like it's a you know. This is the the beginning of a major infrastructure shift for the panthers to being an organization that they wanNA emulate the steelers and they wanna be simultaneously Eh analytics friendly at the same time so I think it was going to be a really interesting sort of narrow path to hit their where they are a run for his team which is typically considered to be sort of a antiquated or old school notion but making it work and so I think in the long run. They might end up being more similar to the Ravens. Who seemed to embody all those things right now in the steelers? Yeah I mean that's absolutely the franchise right now that you want to emulate if you look at WHO's doing it the best right now from both play on the field but also what they're doing inside their building and the the mindset that they have with the type of people that they hire The way that they make all their decision I think it's the Ravens and I guess that comes from the steelers family and that's so so that's what he's familiar with. But I think the other thing that we we didn't talk about was not rule that we just really have to mention. Is that while we can talk about schematics. And look at his Ex's knows and yes he's run I but you know what college offenses he bringing those sorts of things. I think the biggest reason that he was this really hot. NFL Coaching candidate over the last two years. This is his reputation. That's kind of a program builder and The work that he did at temple the way that he really kind of overhauled Baylor over the last two the three years when they were really a disaster The the way he interacts with players You know he brought his father and his former pastor and coach and you know I just think that Dad's what made him so attractive in addition to obviously like the the the skills that he has. It's an actual you know coach but You know I think we get so caught happen. Like what exactly is this. Guy's offense going to look like or what exactly is this guy's defense gonNa look like when really what owners and management are looking at is. What's this Guy's vision? How is he going to interact after everything everybody in the building? How does he relate to players What is his vision? All those sorts of things not really why they came out rule You know a bunkers you you know seventy million dollar contract Jack. Think that's very fair and I think that's really what they're bringing matt rule to do. I mean this is a guy who they think is going to overhaul everything about the panthers. The culture is going to change not that rhinovirus culture was bad. Obviously it worked for a long time but I think you know this is going to be a eighteen. An organization top to bottom built in in the vision of Matt Rule on the other side of things You think about the hiring. The giants made today in Joe Judge who granted. I think there's been that those sort of initial tweets coming out the wide receivers coach. He's really special teams coach. He is not good for one year. He has been the Patriot special teams coach for a long time. He has worked under Bill Bell. Check US worked under Nick Sabin. Those are pretty successful people to work underneath and yet it sort of seems like not. Maybe this is wrong to say but it seems like this higher is out of nowhere. Is that fair to say a little bit. I mean he was.

"Earnhardt, and he really was kind of John Wayne and Elvis all wrapped up in one American bad ass and flare definitely has that same zeal. And I'm of the mind that Dale Earnhardt, Jeff, Gordon, we just we just did this huge documentary. I was a part of this documentary on Fox Sports about the Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt rivalry, and how it just exploded NASCAR into mainstream American consciousness and not only the fan base. But corporate America, how would you describe I kind of feel like as a fan I feel like dusty and flare like dusty Rhodes and Rick flair their rivalry and their relationship had that same impact on NWEA wrestling. That's my opinion. What do you think about that? I could see that. I just see that. The intimidator Dale Earnhardt, look course with grittier side. I never I never looked at Jeff Gordon is gritty blue collar. It. Just didn't didn't that didn't resonate some that persona to that those qualities that's not a negative on the guy just said, he would be more. The you know. The smoother side of player, Jeff, Gordon, dusty and the intimidator there. Well, he was he was visiting lot hero. He was another huge. That's probably all the restaurant style. Never been the closest to John Wayne of any of them because it was a real free spirit. You know, not just ahead on his way about working together. He had a way with words in some made up from apply. I've done I've done live broadcast. We're talk about some things that I studied my rep attender nice after of course, I said what the hell is rep attended. I don't know. Nice words up as you go along. Okay. Let's one industies rep attended lines. So who is this? He was easy to pinpoint who he was. He was the son of a plumber, you know, little from Austin got into wrestling. He he's Turkishness business. He's you know, he wanted to be a pro ball player. He wanted to play baseball. You know, he was a good baseball player football in college. We could go to class for this way. You wouldn't go to class. So he went to a lot of schools and the restaurant found him, and it was a hell of a deal for now. He was he was the voice of the people for many years. He's what Steve Austin replace the source of the blue collar voice of pro wrestling, except when Austin came along it was just a much bigger social media window to harvest from. And that's what these guys are smarter doing. Now, they're they've mastered social media, whereas when I first got the benefit these guys, mashed. Some drinking whiskey and promos best promo man back in the day. And what's the best promo you ever saw dusty? And that's a flare the best because the deal was back in those days. You may run ten or twelve or fourteen allows events that's not an exaggeration. Folks. A lot of this with those loud events game its own set a promo or they would air in that market on the local television station. So you did promos all week you do does is almost a week around the loop. And so you've got practice practice practice. That's what makes player that's just a damn good because they didn't have any writers. They didn't have any a sister directors. They didn't have any production assistance. No that existed you've made up your own stuff. You had to have the wrestling with buildings within the Dayton of time. That's all you got to go out there and tell a story dusty and flare off of their own experiences of the last twenty four forty eight hours. Hours. We that into a story, and it was just brilliant. It was just like programming only. It was like a little infomercial. They're absolutely amazing. They're like lyricist. I've always said, you know, my job as a kid from Oklahoma. Watching wrestling fan broadcaster is a is a dream deal. It really is because the restaurants are the musicians and the the guys like me or a lyricist. So all we had to do is come up some lyrics on the the music. We heard we felt we saw put the right near that.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb here in the early days of car racing. Even a minor accident could be fatal. For example, Patrick Jack mart was killed at mid Ohio in one thousand nine hundred one after a head on collision with a Bank his car was left relatively unscathed. But Jack Martin ended up with a skull fracture caused severe brain damage lucky for other racers to of Jack marts friends stepped in and created a safety device that has changed the sport of car racing forever. Those friends were Jim downing and Jack marts brother-in-law Dr Bob Hubbard the two decided to combine Downing's knowledge of racing and Hubbard's expertise in engineering and skull anatomy to develop new safety gear to try to prevent deaths like Jack marks from happening. Again, these simple and effective invention. They created became known as the Hans device short for head and neck support. The Hans device isn't like a car airbag, which inflates a cushion to stop the driver in case of a collision. Instead, the Hans device pro. Actively uses a raised collar and two tethers to secure the driver's head. In other words, it's a shoulder collar that attached to both the car seats safety harness and the driver's helmet in the event of a crash. It keeps the racers head and neck properly aligned with the torso preventing the type of excess force that would otherwise result in serious or fatal neck and head injuries. But it took years for the Hans device to become a financial success. And unfortunately, it took the death of a high profile racer for NASCAR to take notice. When Dale Earnhardt senior was killed in two thousand one in a crash similar to Jack marts at the Daytona International Speedway the race and community including NASCAR finally took the Hans device seriously. Now, most recent organizations require the use of a Hans device for all drivers. The Hans device is specifically designed to prevent Basler skull. Fractures, those injuries are caused when a car suddenly decelerate s- in earnhardt's fatal crash Daytona. For instance, NASCAR determined. That he hit the wall going one hundred and sixty miles per hour. That's two hundred and fifty seven kilometers per hour and slowed by somewhere between forty two to forty four miles per hour about sixty seven to seventy kilometers per hour in just eighty milliseconds. This sudden deceleration is known as the delta v literally the change in velocity. A while. It's difficult to provide exact statistics on how many lives have been saved by the Hans device. We do know this NASCAR where certified hands are mandatory did not have one single driver fatality in the decade after earnhardt's death. Whereas there were one hundred twenty six deaths from crashes on drag strips and short tracks where hints devices are not required and hands estimates that of those one hundred twenty six deaths as many as twenty seven percent that's thirty four driver deaths could have been prevented by using the device, and no driver in an IndyCar or an any of nascar's major series has been killed by Basler skull fracture since it required.

He was that was probably like one of the first Domino's in a series of things that he might have wanted to do outside of this life is a race car driver in NASCAR. He may have had other unique things that he had to check off his list. And that was probably the first one. Because I was I was real surprised when he came up with idea to even do it. You know, I didn't think he was kinda guy that would do these extra curricular things outside of his emits responsibilities. I mean, he was a busy busy, man. The corvette program people thought that he was going to run them. All eventually, he was telling them that you're in and then two thousand two. Yeah. You might see me, sir. Think that would happen. Absolutely one hundred percent sure that he would have probably made to happen. The plans to put Dale Earnhardt in the twenty four hours of Lama already were being formulated before his jet had left Daytona after the Rolex twenty four Lamont is the most prestigious endurance race in the world. A crown jewel associated with Dan gurney, AJ Foyt, and Steve McQueen, and it would have had another slice of racing Americana in Earnhardt nascar's version of John Wayne fan said some of the groundwork was laid for having Dale Earnhardt race in France possibly as early as two thousand two and he knew he was dealing with an experienced team. And he knew he was dealing with accompany. General Motors Chevrolet who who wanted to have them be part of what we're doing you find ways to to to make those things happen. We had a car that was ready to go. And we had worked out how you know. We were going to look at how we're going to try and fit scheduling for testing and travel back and forth. It was I want to say that it was ninety percent of the way there. But everybody had agreed that we were going to do this. You know, we had the framework we had the foundation pretty solidified into getting that done. It was his dream. He was only going to run. This is what he told me. Anyway. His plan was at least at that point. In time was only going to run one more year of Cup of cop. And then he saw himself for being able to compete for number of years. Not just this was not going to just be a Lamar race. He wanted to do them all race. But he wanted to do more sports car racing. He enjoyed the environment. It was just a completely different environment than in which he had to work in every weekend. There are ways in which the corvette and Earnhardt links remain very strong the year after earnhardt's death. Fiend said the team received a heartfelt letter from Teresa Earnhardt while preparing for all the letter still hangs in core vet racing shop after Dell had passed it was at first year at all this this this is where it gets a little motion for me. You know, when you think about the last checkered flag that he ever saw was in corvette. It's pretty remarkable. It's you know, you're just gives me pause to think about that. But that following year at Loma Theresa had written a letter, obviously junior had expressed to her the traditions that we had developed the tradition that we had before Daytona was similar to the tradition that we had before them all and she had written a very emotional letter to the team talking about what Dale. You know, what deals dream was at that race? And what it meant to him. And how important is time was with our team. It was pretty cool. Tom wanted to know what my dream car was. Well, this is it. Corvette racer. And the reason why is I've talked about rather the twenty four hour race for a lot of years in in Daytona Chevrolet, corvette guys came up with this deal. Now, this is a race car. That's that's one thing. That's great about it with down and tested the car. And I've got a corvette I drive around nothing. Painted nothing to get up and go and also stop interns because this race and this is going to be a fun car to race in the forty four. I raised a fun car.

"Earnhardt, jR, if you heard part one of this podcast, and if you haven't go back, and listen right now, you know, that Dale jR, made his Rolex twenty four debut in two thousand one he was on a team with three co-drivers, his legendary father, Andy pilgrim and Kelly Collins the foursome finished second in their GTO class and fourth overall as their teammates corvette won the twenty four hour race part. One was all about the origins of this legendary and unique pairing of the earnhardt's Daytona, and all the preparation that went into it. Part two is about how the race went. What would have been next in sports cars for Dale Earnhardt? And how nearly twenty years later the race still touches Dale junior and Doug Fien longtime corvette racing program manager. Those are the two primary voices. You will hear in these episodes? Let's pick up now with the race. It's February fourth two thousand one Dale Earnhardt is climbing into the yellow number three corvette for the first time and during a rain shower, which turned out to be perfect conditions. According to Dale was out there and started to sprinkle. And so the guys were a little bit nervous. And and they're on the blower to him. You know, how you feel? No, I'm liking this. I'm like, this is actually I kind of liked us. Well, the reality of it was when the track was just a little bit wet the car kinda worked like a NASCAR reduced level of grip, and it was providing him just enough movement in the car where he could work it because the rain has started a fall harder. And he is on dry weather tyres. Now, here's a guy who has spent his entire life racing. Stock cars never goes out in the west and here with slicks on the car. He is passing people right and left though, he initially was scheduled for one stint Dale Earnhardt asked for another. And then another Dale Earnhardt as just crawled out of the number three Goodrich. Corvette Kelly college beginning on board dealer. Not put in an absolutely stellar driving Ston, it's very visible conditions during some very quick laps and how they turn towards back over to Kelly Collins there is. Dale Earnhardt senior getting on the radio. I guess he wants to talk to Kelly about something. Your life. How's that? He was begging for a fourth when Fiene this team finally had to say, no. So he did his first in and it still wet. I say you good to go. Yeah. He says I I I'm good for two. He gets done with two and gets on before. He's even done. He doesn't wait for his ass. He says can I go three. In such a good time with the track being wet. He was really loving it. So we do three he wanted to do four. We should know you got you got a time. Limit. You gotta come in. You gotta rest we will going to look at one. And normally guys are only due to because you're looking at tickle in two hours. You know, you wanna get them rested and backing cadence so yeah. But he ended up ended up doing three one to four he didn't want. He didn't want him in. He wanted to do the world six hundred right there.

"They always came first with him. And you didn't see that very often. I had never seen it at that level before certainly not a guy who would reach that pinnacle of success and then be able to demonstrate, you know, his love and respect for the people who supported him. Everybody was really excited for dad to be their dad had a lot of respect from people all across informs motorsport and cross those lines and boundaries. And so I think everybody was just like, man. This is great. They weren't intimidated by Hume from competitor standpoint. He didn't act like. Boy, I'm a light world. We'll show you guys or I'm Dale Earnhardt move out of the way, give him space. He just came in their inquisitive asking all the right questions, easy to approach and talk to and people just liked it me, and they just really felt like people really liked it. And they appreciate it. I think to how many new people we're going to be watching that race because his involvement, and I think that all the other teams and drivers knew that a great opportunity for them to get a little extra eyeballs on the racist, self and their teams. It was a great business opportunity for heart to in an unusual arrangement corvette racing and Chevrolet didn't pay Earnhardt and his son to drive their cars, but they didn't exactly race for free. The lion's share of the millions of dollars that were sold in die casts and collectibles off this special number three went to Dale Earnhardt incorporated. Not that the Earnhardt cared that much about those revenues in all the conversations you would never have them. He never talked about business. No kidding. Never not once. It was always about the sport. I I think one of the things that impressed me in our very first meeting. He had done his homework. I mean, he knew who I was he knew what the program was about. This wasn't just some, you know, Hollywood star that Walston and said, okay, what's up whereas my helmet. I mean, he knew what was going on. He knew what our history was. He knew how important race. This was he had always held out a love for the twenty four hours of the mall. He had never had the opportunity to really drive a professional level sports car. He was like a kid in the candy store. Dale Earnhardt, jR, says it's because his dad's saw the bigger picture. The ninth grade dropout with an uncanny business savvy that he turned into a sprawling empire of race teams and commercial endorsements. Always saw the bigger picture. This was something that he came. He put together I just was along for the ride when it came to organizing it from a business standpoint. And from a you know, whatever he was going to get out of it. He was going to have fun doing it. And he was going to sell a lawsuit nears who's going to create a lot of interest in buzz. Those are probably the things that he thought about this as well as driving and doing well, but he looked at it really from a very broad perspective backed up and saw how this would do a lot of good things. I was like I was only thinking go fast every lap. I never was concerned. I was soon naive to be concerned about how this would help me through Macarena. What peop- what the perception would be all this never even thought about any of that stuff? And dad did dad knew this was great on a lot of new levels. You know, Dan. This was going to bring a lot of NASCAR fans to watching this race. Is this going to do a lot of great things across the board for everybody. And so I was along for the ride from that standpoint he was going to he's taken me on this trip with him. But dad was somewhat along for the ride as well with virtually no experience in sports cars and concerns about avoiding any potential embarrassments for an ask our hall of Famer the decision was made to add to. The veterans to the ride pilgrim and Collins, Dale Earnhardt already have become good friends with pilgrim in a two thousand eleven story. Pilgrim told racing journalist Holly Cain that he received.

What a great movie for kid. But I just didn't know much about it. I had no real connection to it. What did you and your dad know about the corvette program before you entered the race the Korea program dad, probably knew the structure of it a whole lot better not dated. He probably knew its connection to Chevrolet as a businessman and knowing motor sport. And the way he does and and manufacturers and so forth and all that how how that connects. He probably had a very under nice understanding of what we were getting ourselves involved. In for me. I was thinking that I'm going, you know, we're gonna drive cars way more sophisticated than anything I ever drove before and way more expensive.

We're looking back on the events of two thousand eighteen and on may fifteenth as we prepared for the running of the all star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. We revisited an exciting finish from twenty-five years ago between Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt, the monster energy NASCAR all star race has a rich history of great finishes with a few controversial wants to boot. One of those finishes happened twenty five years ago between Mark Martin lyndale Earnhardt both drivers lingered around the front for most of the event when the final ten laps began Martin jumped to the lead with Earnhardt close behind brakebast slick test a pit dive to the side. Pickle league attract race down the back straightaway, his heart. Try to stay on the outside as Rick basket. Shuttled back to seven eight thousand line Martin has the lead into three Earnhardt runs in hard right up on his back bumper with Olympic gold, Terry Lemani and Bill Elliott brought out the caution. What car spins in the middle of the turn Terry the body spins collect Bill Elliott ever show likely the race came down to a green white checkered finish. But Dale Earnhardt jumped the restart. Here's the pace car. Pulling off the banking up intern number four, they waste no time and coming off that corner and Dale Earnhardt gramps lead before they ever get the start finish line Earnhardt is off at running. And now they're going to display the yellow flag. Here has NASCAR is going to take a close look at that Greece. Type earnhardt's crew chief Andy Petri said that happens. They'll does it. I'm thinking on purpose to see if he can get away with it. And if he did nothing is just hoping it would rattle Mark because Mark had covered. He was gone. We you know, we didn't really have anything for him. But we all get changed writing in. Then they will get to be Dale. There is thing messes with Mark enough and jumps at star. And then everybody is just lived that. They don't put him in the back in all the other crew chiefs complaining, you know, that they should have penalize us and put us in the back, and they just react them again and sit and they'll start over. And I think it just rattled Mark so much that he just didn't with the basic green white checker finish. She didn't have time to recover the entrance of. For three for the final time earnhardt's car hugs the bottom of the racetrack slides up halfway through the quarter. Mike did stop at the bottom of the corner to try and get along side. It's not going to work Taylor. Earnhardt will become the first three time. Winner of the Winston Earnhardt takes two hundred thousand dollars Roche racing's Mark Martin. I didn't really have a problem with that. People say what they think some people may think he got in my head. I didn't get clear of Dale on the third restart. It was a double file restart. And as you see the outside works pretty Dame did own double file restarts on race tracks Moore, especially were aero comes into play. So day manage on the third on the third try the restart to stay on quarter panel. And I couldn't keep the back from passing the front and turn three I didn't want. So he cleared me. And I didn't have enough time. I'm you know, I did have the fastest car. And I didn't have enough time to set him up and then get the past done back. So he beat me. This is a happy van. I'll tell you that. Right. Bills about to pass. Well. Mark known at one race starting to calm down for it. And with gone on that next restart their just restart with him. And we ran him. Oh, now, take out his rage. Now, what has gotten allies car gotta loose getting three watt. But it got around him and got on in front of him. And I don't know how we held him off even stronger stronger off corners, and we had who's just to beat him. One of the most exciting finishes from the all star race twenty five years ago. Coming up next, we'll pay tribute to one of the new inductees to the mask hall of fame and later, we'll hear from chase Elliott after his first win at Watkins Glen race fans. Do you have an old car motorcycle boat or RV just.
