"Prices do very shop around if you want to put Denny on your pre week race card. When we look at some of the other drivers, obviously we have to talk about the biggest names and Hendrick motor sports. We hit on Kyle Larson already, but I think his other true of teammates can oftentimes be grouped together. We know we're going to have to pay a premium to try and back chase Elliott. Alex Bowman and William Byron, it's anybody's guess in terms of what you're going to get from the 24 and the 48 on a weekend week out basis. But what I find fascinating about chase Elliott is there is a wide range of prices available on the 9 car in the outright market right now. I've seen a low of ten to one. I've seen upwards of 15 to one. And when you grade out the entire camp, I can sit here and I can say it straight face, they chased Elliot is overvalued, but that he's obviously going to exceed our pre week expectations. Green flag speed wasn't really that great at Fontana, but he's a guy that gets the most out of his equipment and unless there is a mechanical issue or he gets shuffled back is going to find himself to be relevant just one top 5 in his last 6 trips here to Vegas. That second place finish came in the fall of 2021 and you look at some of the contracts as far as mile and a half were concerned in 2022. 9th in Vegas in the spring race 29th the Kansas 33rd at Charlotte, 11th at Kansas two and 21st in Vegas to some of those finishes and what we've seen weekend in week out speed wise from the Napa 9 car don't suggest that he should be priced amongst the elite drivers. I mean, in his 12 visits to Vegas, he only has 6 top 20s. That is crazy. We're talking about the championship favorite at this point last year, not at this point last year. Well, probably at this point last year, but going into the Vegas race, he was still the championship favorite. In that round of 8. And he with no issues ran straight up 21st. That is not a team with speed. And I'll tell you what, he got a lot out of that finish at Fontana. I mean, he was kind of hanging around all day, but you know, again, making no mistakes and you got to give Gustafson some credit for getting that car where it needed to be for him to make some moves late to finish second. However, I just don't think that this Vegas track is good for chase and I know I'm going to have a bunch of chase fans coming at me nails up. But I just don't think that this is a good spot for him. Now, it could bode very well if he does come out there and perform well. So I'm not going to say I'm optimistic, but I have no problem turning optimistic if we do get a good run out of this 9 car because this kind of sets the stage for mile and a half for the rest of the year. So if he shows up at a track where he historically is run poorly and runs well, I think that he could be setting up himself up for a great season on these mile and a half tracks and we know how he runs at short track. So could bode well for the 9, but I'm not optimistic at this point. Well, I'll tell you one thing. I'm very curious to see when I look at the screen right now as far as some of the head to head matchups that we can expect to be widely available involving chase Elliott. Christopher Bell, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Junior, and of course chase Elliott's teammate William Byron, which when you look at Alex Bowman and William byer, and Alex Bowman won here in the spring, 21 fastest laps had the second highest driver reading in the field, but only led 16 laps in that race, his lonely of the season. And you look at Bowman over the course of the full 2022 campaign, he only had three more top 5 finishes in his final 33 starts after winning at Las Vegas. The last 5 trips to Vegas, it's kind of been feast or famine, two top 5s, three finishes 13th or worse, and then when you look at William Byron, never finished better than 5th here, four of his 6 trips to Vegas have been 13th or worse, however he did finish with the third best driver rating in the spring race, 98% of that race he spent inside the top ten top 15. So it begs the question, we've talked about Kyle Larson being a guy that you're going to have to be very weary of or cognizant of in terms of what he can do at this track, but his trio of HMS teammates, it feels like there's a wide range of performances. And if I'm putting this on a bell curve, I'm going to have a lot more potential negative outcomes than the expectation that the 9, the 24 and the 48 are all going to be top ten to top 12 worthy cars. Yeah, these two drivers are, they're kind of the obviously, I guess you could call them the second or third or third or fourth kind of Hendrick motor sports drivers. But they are very different in my opinion. I think that if Bowman unloads poorly, he does a better job of getting the most out of his car if that makes sense. In Byron is the opposite like either unloads like a rocket and then competes for the win or he unloads like a dump truck and you're lucky to keep him on the lead lap.

"They went from being 8th on average to having the fastest pit crew via their numbers at Martinsville. So that was another confidence booster. So they walked in there with what they felt like would be the fastest car, which they proved to be besides maybe then or the 12, but their Team Penske was the fastest team at Phoenix. They have the most confident driver who says he knows exactly what to do and how to drive that place in 2020, the shape shift that got away. Another part of it, right? Where he felt like he was the best. And you got to pick crew that they feel like is the fastest picker. In a race where the only thing Paul Wolfe said to me, he was worried about was the pits and the variables around that. And he said, the only way we lose. That was an art quote. The only way we lose this championship is that we screw up with the pits. They felt like they had everything ready prepared, and obviously they had that time. And so Joey called Vegas the most important race of the season besides Phoenix. When I was having the first meetings of my team, for Xfinity this week, I sat down with our GM everyone and I said, hey, look, this is how I look at things blah, blah, and I said, by the way, Vegas. That's the most important race of the year. When we get to the playoffs or anything, I was like, that I'm telling you, I know I've seen this now for the TV side multiple times. What that allows these teams to do is unbelievable. And put aside just the mental side of you're all prepared, you're doing things. Think about the 20. Christopher Bell, who gets through at Martinsville, then Monday morning has to be like, oh my gosh, we're running for a championship. There's no way they're gonna be as prepared. In an era where the car is all the same, it comes down to your people, execution preparation. So I just think they haven't beat that way. And two things to follow up on there. One, the pit crew change because you mentioned that Jackman had been with Paul Wolfe since he'd been a cup crew chief, which would have been 2011. I mean, more than ten years. Yeah. They've been together a long time. It was a very emotional change for Paul. Yeah. That seems like a really significant I want to say risky, but to make that change with two races ago in a season when you're locked in the championship four and you don't want to disrupt that chemistry, but obviously it works. Graham came from the 12 car. It just worked. And Paul talked about a little bit after I asked him after the race. We did our interview on the post ratio of my second question was, hey, you know, your picture was flawless. They never made a single mistake when it counted, they got you out whether you need to be, you know, that's exactly what you'd ask from pit crew. But going into this, you guys had to make a change. It was a tough change. And he got very emotional about it. In terms of just Braxton mint is a friend of his and someone he's had a lot of success with and won a prior championship. And so, but he was like, you know, we just got to do what's best for the team and a change had to be made. So it's tough. And you mentioned that Logano had said, so the most important race before Phoenix was that Vegas win. And that is interesting to me, Parker, because I get the rationale behind it. I get the logic behind it. And we've certainly seen there have been other instances where the guy wins what was then the opening round of 8 race at Martinsville, when the championship, Logano did in 18 Jimmy Johnson did it in 16. But I guess I sort of fell for the narrative that the next gen might alter this equation because teams aren't building their cars. You don't have as much opportunity to maybe tailor make your car to Phoenix, but I guess it doesn't really matter in a sense because it's still just if you can just spend that much time just on setup stuff, forget about having autonomy over the entire car. It still makes a difference. And even just preparation of how you tackle the weekend, right? And how do you start doing sim wise? You could start two or three weeks ahead of everyone working on sim, you know how correlates really well. You can start working on the idea of one of your teammates is going to run this alternate setup idea that you can't run because they're not going to be a part of it. I just think those things compound where I know you can't build your own stuff right now, but then it comes down to the tiny things, right? Because everyone's running damn same lap time. It's such minute small things. It can make huge differences. Yes, it's different, maybe, and how you get an advantage, but I think the advantage is the same. If that makes sense. It does. You can't build the car differently anymore. Like you could three or four years ago, you would build a throat will throw down Phoenix car, maybe it's got some sort of weight distribution difference or something you've done different. And now, yeah, you can't do that, but it's the small stuff that adds up to create the same gap. Exactly. And that's where it makes a lot of sense to me. It's counterintuitive to think about it first, but it kind of goes to this broad industry wide NASCAR discussion we've had in recent years about it as the cars have become more common or whatever. And they're working in smaller and smaller areas. If you can find the edges in those smaller areas, it's actually going to mean like a bigger advantage. So the next gen in a sense, maybe it does limit the areas that teams are working on to just set up suspension stuff, but the stuff I'm sure that Paul Wolfe in the 22 found the other teams probably weren't going to be able to find in the time they had to be prayer because nobody locked in before Martinsville was the other thing. Yeah. So Joey Logano said that he was treating this like the most important race of the year Phoenix. And every other driver we talked to tried to pass it off as just another race. And I think this was another advantage for Logano. Those media interviews, he was saying, hey, this is not just another race. You have to treat this as if it's the biggest race of the year. I know you didn't have chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, Ross Chastain. But did you see things from those drivers that indicated, especially in the case of bell and Chastain being in the championship round for the first time that maybe they were a little bit overwhelmed or kind of trying to find their footing up until race day. You know, I didn't particularly notice anything that stood out to me. You know, I look for that in practice, often where I notice where I've won a race and the next week all the eyes are on you or I've been in a championship fight before where things start to sort of the focal points starts to point at you a little bit. And you know, there's more tension. There's more cameras around you, so and so forth, and the championship week, I love that practice. Because you've never seen more cameras, more reporters, more people around those four cars during practice and fans lining behind. But when I saw Ross walk out and you know I look for like their body language, I've seen years where I can see a couple of years ago where Denny looks so stiff. I was like, he's beat. I mean, daddy, daddy was my pick to win the championship this year. He's always playing. Always will be. It's always his year until it's not. I think if he doesn't win one, he'll go down right there with Mark Morton's one of the greatest drivers to never win a championship. But yeah, so I look for all that stuff.

"NASCAR Nancy podcast. I'm your host Nate Ryan. Here on the Wednesday after the season finale, I'm on camera, but not on camera in the traditional way. Parker Kligerman has joined me on YouTube. Yeah, go check out Parker Clinton's YouTube channel for some exciting V logging. Unexpectedly. We're avoiding maybe calling it a vlog. Yeah, vlog. So normally this would be on camera before NASCAR America, known as car American motormouth today, so instead, Parker and I are doing this old school. I'm recording solely the audio version of the NASCAR on NBC podcast, which I normally do as a simulcast sort of thing, but in this case, there will be no on camera version just me and Parker in the studio talking it out Phoenix raceway, the season finale Parker was there. I was there. Joey Logano wins the 2022 championship. And this worked out well, Parker because you had Joey Logano's pit as one of the NASCAR NBC pit reporters this past weekend. And you noticed it too as well, I'm sure the swagger, the confidence he had pretty much all weekend, even before he won the pole position. When did you first notice it? When did you see it? I noticed it when I talked to Paul that Wednesday. Before the weekend. And once I got assigned, I talked to Paul, and I know Paul really well. I was test driver for him on the Xfinity program when he was at Penske with Brad when they first came in together. I was like the back of driver I did all the practice and qualifying and Brad couldn't make it with Paul. So I've known Paul really well. And I was their test driver when they won the championship in 2012 on the two car, their light car. So I know Paul, and I know how on edge he can be. And when I spoke to him for 30 minutes on Wednesday, it was just like, when we won Vegas, we went to work on Phoenix the next day. And I'm telling you partner, we are prepared. And he just kept saying, we are prepared. And I'm just like, all right, he doesn't usually say that, right? He just kept really leaning into that. And then I saw Joey's comments at media day. And it was like, oh, these guys are. They've beaten everyone before, you know, they've shown up. And it just meant that you could tell that they were just in a different space than the others. And their confidence was booming. And so I just thought that continued until I interviewed Joey for qualifying. And well, actually, I'm going to go back to practice. I saw they weren't as good, maybe they were good on the long run. You could see it, but they weren't as good maybe as the 9 or the one. And then the 12 car though was a rocket ship in practice if you remember. And I thought, huh, they talk about being prepared, doing all the stuff, the 12 cars been knocked out. I wonder if the 12 cars got something different. So of course, it did a little bit. And then on the next day, I interviewed Joey before he goes and qualified. I said, what would you be satisfied with? What helps you towards win this championship? And he said first, I'm going to win the poll. I'm like, okay. That's confidence. What does he do? He wins the poll. And then I was told that the two setups between the 12 and the 22 were almost very similar. And I have to think that was a little bit of the 12 was set up in a way. This trying something in practice that they saw and liked because Joey and him, Paul talked about it forever. After practice and I saw. And so it just kept building until I was like, and I think it was in most of my reports before the race. And when we did reports during the race, I was like, this team has mentally been the champion since, you know, since Tuesday and it's up to everyone else to take this championship from them and no one rose up. I noticed it right away on media day as well. I was in the NBC room and asking questions of each of the four championship contenders as they came in. And no disrespect to chase Elliott Christopher Bell Ross Chastain. But the demeanor, the body language, the way he answered the question. Joey Logano just, he was in a different plane than these guys. It's hard to explain, but just the first question we asked each of these guys was what does it mean to be here and have this opportunity in the race for the championship? Something you'd normally expect a driver to answer. It means the world, you know, this is what we're all building for. Everybody gave that answer except for Joey, who's Joey's answer was, it means nothing. And that was how he started the interview. And they were like 5 other people in the interview. And everybody's like, ears perked up and it's just like, what's happening here? And he just continued to parlay this. And I don't think he was playing mind games the way we've seen Tony Stewart do with Carl Edwards in 2011 or Kevin Harvick has done it with several drivers, not just in the playoffs, but just in general. But he definitely took advantage of the fact. I mean, he said Sunday Night after he won the race and the championship that I could tell that some guys were just happy to be here. And obviously there are two guys who would have been making their first appearance Christopher Bell and Ross Chastain. How did you, I mean, because you're aware of that your driver, you're going to be a full time expanding series driver again next year where those mental games get played. How do you think Joey Logano kind of used those edges? Because he doesn't do it in a real overt way, like other guys do, but clearly he took some confidence from it. Yeah, I think he just leaned into like, I know exactly what to do. I've been here before. I've done it. I've got two of them beat on that fact. And I believe I have a faster, better car than the 9, which Penske also believed that short tracks had been a strength for them this year. And that Paul mentioned that and that he and Joey were really confident about their package on the short tracks, which they consider Phoenix, maybe is a little bit of a hybrid, but they consider a short track package. So I think it wasn't you put it. It wasn't mental games. It wasn't like, you know, ribbing of the others and like poking fun or even folks. It was like they don't even exist. That was the other thing. It was like, it was just, I'm so confident, there is not three others here. I don't even know who you're talking about. You could put Dale Earnhardt, David Pearson Bobby Allison there. I'm still gonna win the championship. Wouldn't matter. That doesn't matter to me. We're here. We're gonna be the best. We are the best team. They made the pit crew change, replacing their Jackman, Braxton Brandon, who had been with Paul since he been in cup. Braxton, I have no Braxton forever. He Graham stoddard was put in that position. They did that right before Martinsville.

"I thought that was funny. I was like, that's pretty good. You love that. Just never say die attitude that never quit. Ross Chastain has it. And I would not be surprised if he's the guy holding the Cup Series. The Bill France cup at the end of Sunday's race of Phoenix. With the weirdness that is Phoenix raceway and the configuration and the layout of the start finish line and all that stuff, you better believe he's been on some sort of racing sim trying to figure something out. No doubt, no doubt. Now, on the flip side, we don't even need to bother with the top ten. Let's just go right to victory lane. This poor guy he had to win and did. He raced his way into the final four by winning the race. Christopher Bell would have been last if he hadn't won in the final 8. Or the 8 stacked up going in. Poor guy, what does a guy have to do? Seriously. And so this is the other thing. So now we're all kind of now talking about Chastain. We're all talking about how Logano has won this thing before. The championship. Chase Elliott has just been so just clutch in these situations. We're looking at a very special run that Christopher Bell is going on. Every time his back's been against the wall, yeah. He's won to advance. And I feel like he's not getting enough attention and stuff like that. He could run under the radar here, and he's not bad at Phoenix. This is a guy who runs very well at Phoenix. Right. Well, you got two guys that are champions already. And dare I say traditionalists. I know chase Elliott's a younger driver. And then you got two guys that are just off the charts hungry and have proved it in recent weeks. Yeah. Yeah, no doubt. I agree. 100% with that. When you look at the history of this playoff format and the current way things are going in the sport, we have one guy in the series right now. There is a multi time champion, and that's Kyle Busch. You look at those numbers. And you look at this field, which has two guys who are champions and two guys who aren't. And the two guys who aren't champions have a lot of momentum coming in because Chastain's got the exhilaration of that move that got him here. Christopher Bell has proven over the last two rounds. He could win when he needs to win. When it's on the line and he has to win a race, Chris rubella has shown he can do that. So there is momentum and stuff on the side of these two guys that aren't champions. On the flip side of that, chase Elliott has been great all year, but once the playoffs started, you kind of faded. He's not been the chase Elliott we saw going into the playoffs. That being said, he's good at Phoenix too and can snap out of it real quick and be the guy that dominates this race. Joey Logano has been pretty good all year round, but hasn't had that same winning tenacity that we've seen out of chase Elliott earlier in the year as well. So there's a lot of question marks and a lot of reasons to think that any of these four guys can win this championship. And it's gonna be a hell of a race. Definitely. All right, so real quick, Joey Logano chase Elliott, Christopher Bell Ross Chastain in knocked out Denny Hamlin right there at the line or was it? I mean, I think Chastain could have finished right behind him and he's talking about buffer and especially with the DQ from Laos. He gave him a few extra stage points as well, which made him a little bit more to the good. But
