"There's your history of chase Elliott and Kyle Larson in 2022. By the way, Bristol is not next week. We are going to Daytona a little messaging Bristol. The first round. Bristol next week? Got to change my plan. We got some time off. So listen, you know, we as humans, we don't always hear what someone said. We hear what they think they said. Or what you think, what you hope they didn't say, what you hope they did say. What Kyle Larson, when Chase Elliott listens to Kyle Larson interview own the front straightaway, it walks into Glen. This is what he hears. This is what he heard. I did it on purpose and you let me do it because you gave me the bottle. That's right. That is exactly right. And the underlying theme was, and I got two guys behind me that if I don't do it, they're going to beat me. That's exactly right. That's what you hear. That's what I heard when I heard that right there. I am ecstatic that chase Elliott got the word out seriously. Like he was, I mean, if you believe, seriously, congratulations. Seriously, I mean, that was so much sarcasm in that. That was the jealous that somebody could be that. Because it was so perfect it was incredible. Incredible, man. Incredible. When you look at me and judge me. That's what I'm saying. He has risen at my book to a totally different level. Listen, you know these guys are upset, dude. I mean, you're just up. They're upset. Maybe Kyle's a little upset because he won the way he won. But he's not upset enough to give it back. He's not upset enough to not listen. He runs el Dora. He gives a guy slide job. It's a slide job that didn't work. Sorry, let's just call it that. You know what I mean? If you look at it that way, it's just part of racing, man. We can beat it to death, but it's still just part of racing. And I just real quick, the frustration on chase, I think, you have to understand that also he was the fastest car all weekend. Like, you know, from practice to qualify. He was in our zip code for those that weekend. He was the dominant car he fought through rain and all that happened stage one to get back in that position. Had that race pretty much covered, I believe in the speed category over everyone. He was two tenths better than anyone in the series through the bus stop all weekend. You know, that's the I don't know even know what the Fontana part plays in as much as just the frustration of being the best car all weekend and not having the trophy in the end. But if we didn't have all those international drivers we wouldn't have all those cautions. So that's a whole other issue too. All right, we're gonna squeeze in a phone call here and ask her for a minute. Let's go to Aaron on the line. Aaron joining us. Welcome to the program. What do you have? Hey guys. First of all, congrats on Carlos and winning. Maybe mister not expecting me, but actually this brings up a good question that I have. I think it's a good question. You're going to the last lap of or in essence the last laps I should say, does it what it really matter if you're a teammates with another person that's right on your door? I mean, we see this thing on a race. Yes. What do you guys think about that? So does being a teammate matter for the win on the last lap, is the question? Obviously, it doesn't. Like he says, we saw it Daytona. We get to block you're up there. I don't believe you can let it matter. If you believe like Jeff doesn't like, I believe, I think, that drivers are the most selfish people in it's all about me. Until they throw the checkered flag, it's all about me. I'll make apologies and we'll try to make amends when it's over with, but it's got to be all about you. If it's not all about you, then you need to find another profession. You know what I mean? Because you're going to get it handed to you at some point in time. And we see it every week. There's some really nice guys out there that don't restart, get it handed to them on a weekly basis on a weekly basis. They've got better cars and can start better, but they just don't, they're not that aggressive because they're not willing to do those things. Yeah, it's such a, it's such a difficult thing to make. It really is. You're walking a tightrope all the time. You want to do the right thing, but you've got to do the right thing for yourself and your individual team too. There's a lot of benefits to having teammates. There's also some negatives. And we've had this conversation for years and years. And every division, wherever you get teammates, it becomes very complicated. It just does. I think it's just a unique part of motor sports is that unlike other sports, at some point in your time as a teammate, you're going to be put in direct competition with each other. You're going to be in direct competition to get the thing you really want is through your teammate and how you work through that. I think it's a unique case in each and every single one and each relationship is different as you allude to Jeff and it's just something you have to deal with and sort of as Cal said at times put aside and at times lean into. And it's just the way it is. The one advantage, the one advantage that a lot of teams have had. In the past. As you've had a superior driver. And everybody else was behind them. That's right. When you look at the lineup that Rick has. When you look at the lineup that these teams have now, there's not a number. There's not a clear number one. There's not a clear number one. And when you don't have a clear number one, it's hard to define. It's hard to define. These are the guys who have won the last two cross champions. Yes. You won't, you won't. You won't your teammate. You want to be on a team with a great teammate, because he elevates the capabilities of the car. He elevates rates the talk with the engineers, with everything. He moves the ball forward. But you don't want that teammate driving the car. When he's out there, you want somebody you can beat on a regular basis. The problem is you've got to racism. I know that's the problem. That's the problem because you're helping them get better and they're helping you get better, but then you go head to head. The rivalry between those two makes us difficult as well. Kyle Larson came into hitting motor sports last year, took the championship, took all the races, chase Elliott did not like that. Nor should he have liked it, he's returned the favor this year. He's one of the most racist. There's a healthy rivalry there. That might play into some of the stuff. As you said, Jeff, that's another reason this should be celebrated. For sure. Pretty unique situation. Well, there were more than just two drivers at Watkins Linus Kyle noted there were some from around the world. So when we come back on NASCAR America motor mouse other side, we'll talk about the rest of the field at Watkins Glenn international yesterday.

"Speedway. What have you learned from those two tracks that will help you going into Talladega this Sunday? That's a great question. I think how the flow of the race towards the end of the race plays out, I think like I mentioned earlier in the show, track position means more now this car because you don't get those big, huge runs like we used to see with the previous car. Tandem might come to effect the tal dig a little bit more than we saw at Daytona because the track's smoother to look wider. So I do think that if you think that you're going to have a shot to win on an 18th with three to go, you're probably mistaken because you got to be in the top three or four rows and pick the right dance and partner at the end to really make a run. And you also got a factor in a little bit of luck. I mean, we've seen guys get wrecked at the end. You've seen guys making last lap passes. So you want to work yourself my private number, but I'll tell all the listeners here, my number was 8 to go of when you really pull them tight and jam it in there. But I think that number has to creep to 1215 laps of 15 laps to get yourself positioned if you want a chance to win the race. Yeah. That's interesting. So one thing that I mentioned the other day that I felt like that at Daytona, we didn't see a lot of three wide racing there. It was almost like back to the 90s when if you were stuck in the middle, you were handed backwards. Nobody was going to help you there. You think we'll see more of that at Talladega. I believe we will, but you're the drop. Yeah, so I think what a factor Daytona was. That was the first race essentially of the next gen car. So now the teams have figured out what makes the cars handle better. What arrow pitched the cars need to be at because it's definitely a lot different than what we anticipated. I mean, you used to try to get the car as low as possible. Get the back down, get the blade out of the air. It doesn't seem like that's the case. You see some of these cars look like shamu going down the road. And this seems like the more the nose is high, the more down force it makes. And the less drag it makes. It looks weird, but you'll got to give the car what it wants. So I anticipate cars driving better, which will keep the cars packed up a little bit more. All right. And we'll keep your secrets safe 15 to go. We won't tell anyone. Don't tell anybody about it. Nobody's watching the show. Just kidding. No, actually a lot of people are watching this show. We've got on the phone's Marvin joining us on NASCAR America motor mouse, Marvin, what do you have for Corey Lajoie? How you doing, Corey? I'm good. So Corey, after a top 20 finish at Bristol, we're heading to one of my favorite supersede ways in Talladega, but are you shooting for a top 5 finish or are you going to just go for the victory on Sunday? I don't know. Sometimes what I want to do as a driver differs from what the ownership wants to do is attack for a race because at the end of the day you do want to solid points day and the risk you run is like if you want to go put yourself in position to win, there's a high likelihood that you could get balled up at the end of that thing, which does two things cost you a lot of money and costs you a lot of points. So we'll have our meetings and we'll figure out who our dancing partners are early before the race even starts. But really and truly, there's only three chances for us to win a race between now and the playoff starts here, Atlanta two and Daytona two. And you don't want to give up any opportunity to potentially throw Hail Mary and get your car in the playoffs and I think we have great motors, great cars, good pit crew that could put us, put ourselves in position. If we really want to let the let it loose and maybe get a little lucky. So tell me about we talked about the suspension difference with this next gen car and the differences that make, but you've got some new tools as far as seeing out the car and how can you see and explain the other options you have to use. Yeah, so there's a lot of different options, obviously the rearview cameras, what you're referring to. So there's a pot on the roof that has a camera like you're driving your Chevy Silverado, right? You can see at the back, it's a little bit funky to get used to because the color isn't the same as what it is outside. But the closing rate, it needs like the disclaimer at the bottom, objects and mirror closer to my up here because it looks like they're jammed up underneath of you. But it's a different way to block it's a little slightly delayed. You'll see some guys run the old school mirror on top, as well as the rearview camera at the bottom. I just elect for the camera myself because you can't really see a whole lot from the mirror, but my teammate Landon castle, Daytona burned up a rearview camera and luckily he had a regular mirror. So if I've learned a rearview mirror up, I'm flying blind. That's all out the front window and taut ego. So we'll see how it goes. That sounds safe. Yeah. So much so much for so much for technology. That's what a seat belt. I'm sure it won't be chaotic like it was last week at Bristol as well. Let's go back to the phones. We've got Preston joining us on motormouth Preston. What do you have for Coyle of joy? Hey, so kind of a question for both Corey and Dale Jarrett. So two pieces. So first part is, I really enjoyed the dirt racing, but I missed having the spring race at Bristol on the pavement. And so first question is, how would you guys feel about sending the spring race back to pavement and then running dirt like at el Dora or.

"Oh, hey. What's up? How's it going, Matt, what's your question? I was calling in about 13 dirt track with Bristol if it was a good track for it. Yeah, put on a great show and I love it, but it would be awesome, even if they added a second venue like say el Dora or even Knoxville, like a permanent dirt track would probably like the flat surface probably would put on an awesome show. Thanks, Matt for calling. And that is a question I do have. So I actually agree with Matt that I'm indifferent on dirt. But I believe if we're going to have one, we need to have two. I felt like that when we had road course races, I felt like that was a restrictor plate races just because you asked these teens, drivers to do so much preparation. I don't think I need one in the playoffs quite yet, but it's 26 race regular season DJ. If we think we need dirt, I think we'd rather have, I'd rather see two of them, that's what we see in the truck series this year where they're going to two dirt venues. Well, I'm glad you went with Matt there because I thought I might be the only one with Matt and that I might be like Matt calling into this show instead of being owned. But I just, you know, I love Bristol for what it is with the concrete. I appreciate the efforts that have been made because I know this is no small undertaking to do everything that they've been able to do. But we have a lot of really outstanding dirt tracks across the country that I think could really put on a good show with just their normal preparations for it other than maybe adding some stands, you know, around for the fans to get there. And I think a couple of them would be good. So I think I'm not a guest having dirt races. I just think they should be at dirt tracks, not tracks made dirt. I like that. Promote promote the tracks that currently hold it will go back to the phone lines to our next caller. Gerald. I'm sorry. Oh, Cheryl, go ahead. My ears aren't as good. Too many times in garage. You know what? I was on at the office. So I answered another phone and put you guys on mute. So I was still listening. All right. I know, I know, I know. Because I'm in San Diego, California. So, you know, three hours behind you guys. You're working. All right. Yeah. Yeah, I'm still working, yes. Yes, I am..

"I mean, even you mentioned the night race last year was one of the best of the season with the whole chase Elliott Kevin Harvick battle. Even if you go back two years ago, I think June of 2020 and you had the great Logano Elliott battle toward the end. Yeah. It seems to me like if you've got like a Knoxville raceway out there in el Dora and you want to put your dirt race there great, but like Bristol has got to be to and I know it's a learning process with it but hopefully we want to do more learning but just with the grill is getting filled up with mud at the start of that race and that handicapping even the post it had to pit before that. In having to throw a caution for that and I know that they said that if that happened, that's what they need to do. But there's just so many things that these stock cars the way that they are and if you're not going to if you're not going to deviate from the rules too much with it, then the experiment should be over and we should just do what they do. Dirt racing is great across the country and I grew up going to dirt races with my dad and loved that and I still like to see good dirt racing. But I don't think that trying to manufacture something and make it a dirt track for those reasons, especially with the Cup Series is the way to go. Well, it certainly was wild and I don't expect that the wildness will subsided all this weekend. Because NASCAR is going to tell dig a super speedway. Second, super speedway races as they call them. They're not really restrictor plate raises anymore. But second one of the season after the Daytona 500, what do you think DJ going back to Daytona? And I was looking at the box score this afternoon and I'd forgotten. I mean, Daytona was pretty normal. You had like four multi car crashes despite all the discussion around parts and limited inventories and how we're going to get cars. You think we can expect more of the same this weekend to tell that what do you expect? Yeah, you know, I've been thinking about this a little bit as they got to talking about Talladega a number of times yesterday. Of course, with the interruptions and stuff. And then, of course, announcing that Dell junior is going to be in the broadcast booth. It took us all by surprise. All of us that didn't know anyway. But that aside, I just started thinking about the racing and what I saw at Daytona and it was a lot of the same things. And the crashes come from aggressive and over aggressive driving and pushing and bump drafting and blocking. And that's not going to change it. Talladega where you have more room to do that and more room to cover and trying to make all of that happen. So I can see three wide racing and that was the one thing that we really didn't see it Daytona that we have seen recently was a lot of three wide racing. There's cars didn't want to do that. That middle didn't seem to be a place that you wanted to be. That kind of took me back to old days as to when if you got put in the middle with the aerodynamics of the older cars and I'm speaking back in the 90s, you found yourself in a bad spot. You didn't know which way your car was getting ready to go. So you basically just had to kind of roll out and try to find a hole to get in and it felt like that you threw out an anchor to when you were doing that with no help. But I can foresee some three wide and possibly four wide racing for a number of laps here. And so how long can they do that before somebody makes that slight mistake and then the contact and then we have big they're all going to be right there together except for if you get a few that are going to decide to hang out, but we'll have to see if anybody thinks that's the proper way to go about it here with it not being in the playoffs or anything like that. So because this is a lot of drivers feel that this is their opportunity to go grab that win and be a part of the playoff scenario. I mean, one would be certainly Brad Keselowski. He probably made the most waves at the data 500. He had a good car, but he was involved in a couple of crashes made a few guys mad. And he still, he ran fairly well at Bristol dirt, but he still kind of hit and miss most weeks, and I'm sure he's looking at this as an opportunity like a lot of other guys, you know, Bubba Wallace and stencil. Junior, I couldn't believe it. I thought about today, but 9 races in the season. I mean, we're a quarter of the way through the season. We're almost a third of the way through or more than a third of the way through the regular season. This is probably going to be the opportunity for a lot of those guys. Yeah, it really is. Even though we've seen some first time winners here, but we're talking about people now that we haven't seen up really mixing it up, other than at Daytona. And the three names that you mentioned there with Brad and Bubba Wallace and Ricky Stenhouse, they were all right in the mix at Daytona and they realized and of course this is where bubba's wind came and so he's got to be feeling like he's ready to get there and make this happen again that this is his opportunity and there's a whole other list of drivers that are in that scenario that believe in realize that with this car and this track that this is their chance and they're willing to take those chances and put themselves in position to try to make this and if you will, Michael McDowell upset from the Daytona 500 of last year. So it's highly possible that we could see another not just talking about a first time winner for this year, but a first time winner. Yeah, it's certainly been a theme of 2022 and we will be watching and listening to Dale junior as part of the Fox broadcast this weekend. So something look forward to. But always look forward to having our other Dale Dale Jarrett joining us here on the NASCAR NBC podcast. So thanks for being here, DJ. Absolutely. Our thanks again to Dale Jarrett for joining us on the NASCAR and NBC podcast. Thanks to NASCAR NBC producers, Emily convoy, and Aaron feldstein for lining up DJ as our guest. A reminder that we also taped this podcast on camera ahead of NASCAR America motor mouths in our NBC sports Charlotte studio, murder mouths, airs Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 p.m..

"We need to have one? And if so, where does it need to be? Does it need to be in Bristol or does it need to go to el Dora? What do you think? I mean, do you guys think that we should have a dirt track at all? I think there should be a dirt track, but I'm in Marty's camp. I mean, they should take it. Hey, don't take away one of the best race facts. I mean, the September race last year at Bristol was probably the best race of the 2021 season. It had the indelible moment of chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick having their confrontation. I don't think you want to limit the ability to have those types of moments at the expense of covering Bristol with dirt. But there's also something we need to consider here though. There's also something we need to consider. I believe that this change to dirt at Russell in the spring came from lackluster attendance. I mean, that spring race was largely under attended compared to the night race that we get in the fall. So I think that if you look at something to be like, okay, well, this isn't working in the spring. And what we got in the fall is working, well, maybe we give people something to get them two totally different experiences. So I'll give Jerry Caldwell and everybody at Bristol, the a for effort for that. But this wasn't done. Be like, hey, let's just throw dirt on Bristol just to throw to her own Bristol. Those stands, we saw, we saw a lot more metal than we did humanity in those grandstands in the spring. Last year, we saw more people for the inaugural dirt race than we did when we had the concrete race. The previous year, question is, will those people come back and will more of them come back for this race this weekend? I think that the attendance is what was driving the radical change. What some folks view as a radical change going to dirt as opposed to the traditional concrete. Batman, we have buried the headline somehow. I'm sure the number one topic on the show this week or all week long has been the fight, which happened Friday night. Which side did they take? Were they in camp Gibbs or camp mayor? It's always the fun. We'll tell you something. The biggest I gives. Ty Gibbs has got some work to do. As far as the perception of the fans and the reputation of the fans today, you know, you're listening..

"But now comes time for practical application. You've got all the cars on the racetrack. Now, when you put all of them out there with all of this put together, how will it come to be? What kind of race will we get? What kind of product will we get? We're going to have to wait and see. I'll give them an a for effort all the way from redesigning the track. And I say redesigning with the progressive banking to moving it tonight to doing all the other adjustments they've done as well. Well, wait and see. I'm hoping for the best. Let's head to Josh and Nebraska who wants to talk about the Bristol dirt race and he has the question that I want to ask. So Josh, go ahead, you're on with Mike Bagley. Yeah, hey, Mike. Well, my personal comments about this holder. Well, I'm pretty excited for the whole event. I'm really excited to see what the next gen car can do. I think what NASCAR is going to be doing with these next with last year's race, it's very exciting to see what they are able to do and to learn from the gen 6. I mean, if we look at what the next gen is like, no diffuser on there, I think that helps with a drag issue perhaps. Well, and also with the comments, is it possible that we're being dragged back? I'm not sure. I'm still excited for it. I really am. His question here, bag, man. Well, should Bristol be raced on dirt at all, which I say no. I mean, I think it's one of the best racetracks. Leave it as asphalt. I don't think Bristol should be racist. Let's go race el Dora if you want to race tour. What do you think, bag, man? Well, I think that the fans that said, listen, we don't have any short tracks as it is, and then you took one, you made a dirt. I think that that voice is still there. And I can see that point, I think that if we get a great race, you know, we were about to entertain this topic this morning, we may do it tomorrow. You know, when you sit there and you watch a race for 400 laps, right? And you sit there through 390 of it. And it's one thing. And then you get this massive run at the end and this chaos breaks out and all heck breaks loose in the final ten. A lot of fans forget what happened.
"el dora" Discussed on The Final Lap
"Trying to share some personal side too. I mean, obviously we're not always at the racetrack, but it's nice to nice to share a little bit of the personal side of my life and what I've got going on away from the racetrack. What I'm interested in such. So just trying to share more and more and get more comfortable with it, really be involved with it a little bit more. That's kind of the way that the sport's going and the sponsorships and the marketing side of it. That's what those guys are really interested in is the social media side. So just continue into do it and trying to do more of it. One thing I noticed tell us more about to read with Eric. Yeah, it's been a program we started over the last few years. I've always been a pretty big reader and for me, I wanted to find a way through to share that. And honestly, when all the COVID lockdowns were coming into play, everybody is kind of stuck at home and for me it was just a great way to share the reading and be able to do something for families and kids to share that and have it give them something due during the lockdown. So it really worked out well. And after we started it, it really caught on and people really enjoyed it. So we've just continued to do that. I've enjoyed it and getting to read those books and say the people drawing in and be a part of it. We're on with Eric Jones and there's some sort of excitement in the air. There's something different about this season. And I think one of the reasons is there's some different tracks on the schedule. And one of them coming up is Bristol, but not just Bristol. It's got dirt now. Is it terrifying to you or you're looking forward to that? Well, it's unique. We don't really know what to expect too much. I guess the only thing that I've really got to look back on is my experience at el Dora in the truck. I've never really ran dirt too much in my life. And for me, I have to kind of take what I learned there a little bit and just try to take what I can. So it's just an unknown. It's kind of a wild card. I mean, we're all going into the sense that we just got to really do the best we can. I mean, you don't know what you got until you get there. So I'm looking forward to it. I mean, Bristol's one of my favorite tracks, so hopefully it still has some of the normal Bristol feel that we have. When we have it, without dirt on it. So we'll kind of see how it goes. And also, on the schedule, this year is Circuit of the Americas. This thing looks state of the art, looks amazing. And it is probably completely opposite of Bristol on the dirt. Yeah, I'm really excited to get there. I think for me, that's attract that I've really got circled on my calendar and one that I'm really excited to get to it. It really is state of the art and a place that I think is going to be really cool for us to get on air race. And I think it's going to put on a good show as well. So yeah, a cool road course. I think we've got a lot of great road courses in this country. And that's one of them. And I think to see the class that it is in the way it's built, I think it's going to be pretty cool for us to get down there and run some apps on it. All right, his name is Eric Jones. He drives the 43 car for Richard Petty motor sports. Best of luck this weekend on the road course at Daytona this time and appreciate having yawn.
