More than ten thousand people in Italy have now been infected with Kovic. Nineteen making that country's epidemic. The world's largest after China's Air Canada has suspended flights between Canada and Italy and lockdown that initially affected the northern region of Lombardy now includes all of Italy and all sixty million of its citizens Peter. Suzy is among them. He writes Italian. Translations of English films owns several tourists flats in Rome. Those are currently empty. As is Mr Suzy's own home in Rome. He and his family fled the city for the relative calm of Umbria days ago. Anticipating the expansion of Lombardi's lockdown. We reached him today. Outside the village of Massa Martenot Peter First of all can you describe what life is under lockdown where you are an umbria okay so we have policemen all over streets? Just one member of the family can go out for shopping supermarket or whatever and yet and we need to have a paper that describes what we're doing outside our homes. Okay okay okay so that. That's it's pretty drastic. So how are people responding to that? Will I think determine people are social people? We used to go out to have a glass of wine. Appear Haagen Keith. You know so. I think this is a good restraining order. Actually because we're not the Chinese where they have the army you know so doubt but we are scared a little bit frightening and so what as far as these restrictions if you are caught outside doing something frivolous or going shopping together? What's the what's the penalty for? That can get up to three months and I understand. You don't want to be an Italian jail right now because they're having all kinds of points good points. Wow Okay so and so people have no choice. Even if it's not the Italian way to Stay home and not enough socialize. They're stuck restaurants close and also pubs and bars and cafes and of course museums and cinemas. And you know sport even think about soccer here. Nearly we are all click crazy about soccer not me. Maybe I'm a I'm the only care about it but you know stadium so everything is dead now you are. You live in Rome normally and you left a few days ago with your wife and son even before it was included in the red zone. So what what? What were you anticipating when you did that well? This is the story I have a nine years old kid and they had winter break week right for new was going to have a you know a a a week skiing right so we if phone turning tiger. It is our our rail train asking you use. How cold to clean up to you. Know surfaces tables an handles and season and they just shut down the telephone on my face so it was like. Oh okay so maybe just to be aware you know just a few people walking around in there. It's a small little village. So you know that was the season and after that week at the school was opening up so me and my wife said okay just sent an email to the and we don't feel comfortable to send our kid cool for the next fourteen days so why don't why don't you shut down the school and the head teacher said we'll know Tuesday we'll be open so I said okay Alex won't be a school for next fourteen days because we think this fourteen days would be crucial and the day after they shut down the schools. So okay so you've been one step ahead of this and but but does that does that concern you given that this is spread. So rapidly initially. Do you think that your experiences show that? Perhaps they weren't on top of this As quickly as what you wanted to be. Yes I think that our news tell us to seventy percent so watching the news okay. This is what's going on. I think in the next few days You know we'll be actually. So which is why I behave this way. You know because the truth. Tell you on on the news. It's not one hundred percent case so given that you feel that you're the school the the the Denia. They're not giving you good information. There's the are you getting in general any good instruction from your government. Yes yes the funny thing is that. After a couple of days three days they were sending on the news saying now we are. You know centralized everything. We got on trains now but three days ago. Where our calling you know answer about it but as I told you before a thing now this is a good restriction at and seeing that we feel it'd be trap because you just can't go out to the supermarket and you're stuck in at home. Luckily I'm a lucky person because I have my little country house where I have a little garden. I could go outside to Cabrera's you know some air but I I mean being in a condo twenty four seven. It's can like you know after a while the I think it's sort of natural that you wanna see a friend or even if it's just you know a stranger outside taking out the dog out the park you know just a little Chitchat. You know and I feel a little trap you know. It's it's tough. I just WanNa ask you know that you have a number of flats or apartments in Rome that you rent out to tourists. What are you seeing? There are tourists coming not coming at all and after yesterday night Had A couple of old customers that used to come almost every year from Australia and older government shutdown all the planes for Italy and they can come here. I have another friend from the. Us USUALLY COM couple times per year. And they are not going to be able to cheaply anymore. What does that tell you? I know that the the Italian economy is very reliant on tourism. What what do you think the ramifications will be disaster? It's a disaster for just all for me but I'm thinking about restaurants and shops and eats a really. It's a disaster. It's really bad. What the instant information are you getting about? How long this is going to last. Well I hope that may be will be better because as I said before. It's our behavior to hug and kiss each other when we see each other and with these restraint. I think. I hope that that thing's GONNA be bettering next couple of months hopefully months not weeks month. Yup because he'll take away which is why the government came out with this idea because they know I mean dairy talent so they know Peter I. I'm glad you in some that at least as pleasant. I appreciate speaking with you. Thank you it was my pleasure. Thank you so much. Good Night Peter. Suzy is waiting out. Italy's nationwide corona virus locked down in Umbria. That's where we reached him and today in Ottawa. The government was pressed on. Its plans to protect workers here in Canada. Here's part of what? Labor Minister Filming. Tassie had to say to reporters in terms of the Workers we are monitoring this situation very closely. We want to ensure that workers are supported. We do not want workers having to feel that they have to go to work if they feel they shouldn't be going to work and so we are looking at Ensuring that those workers are supported. And we also don't want workers going to work because they feel that they need to work in order to pay for their groceries and put food on the table so well we will be monitoring this situation. I know that we are now reaching out. The Minister of Innovation and science is reaching out to ensure that Recognizing the impact that this is having on workers I myself as minister of Labour will be work reaching out to my stakeholders to actually recognize and here of the impact that it's having to date. That hasn't been significant. There has been a handful of workers who have asked that the workplace deem be deemed safe so that provision is in there if there is ever a worker in federally regulated sites. That feels that they're going into a work environment. That isn't safe that they have the right to make that statement and then of course the department goes in assessments are done to ensure that workplaces are safe workplace is not safe a worker would not have to go in there so in terms of moving forward. We will continue to monitor this situation. We have a special cabinet committee that set up and we are monitoring this hourly as time passes. Labor Minister Philomena Tassie speaking to reporters earlier today on Parliament Hill Omaha. Aw Mohammed bin Salman is throwing his weight around again. There were suggestions that the Saudi crown prince had been chasing by early failures. His war in Yemen is a disaster and the murder of the journalist. Jamal Kashogi made. Nbs as he's known a pariah at least for a while but now he's back in the headlines at home. Nbs spent the weekend locking up some of his royal family at the same time. He was busy setting global oil markets. Ablaze Andrew Miller was a policy advisor. On Barack Obama's National Security Council. We reached him in Washington DC Miller distance the weekend. Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince has launched a series of arrests of his fellow royals and then an oil price war with Russia. Are Those related events. They're related in the sense that he believes both steps are necessary to ease his session Two of the fromm in terms of the crackdown on the princes the individuals targeted or those who are perceived as those with both the ability and the potential motivation to is a- session. And then you know in terms of the his actions on the the price of oil as we know. Saudi Arabia is incredibly dependent on oil revenues and the economy in Saudi Arabia has not been looking very good. Their budget deficit is rising and there was a frustration with the price of oil and when the Russians were unwilling to play ball to artificially increase the price of oil I think Mohammed bin Salman decided that he was going to compete with the Russians and with American Canadian shale producers dare them to try to produce more production at a lower prices for fuel. Well and it's a game of chicken that he's playing with very big players he both. The United States and Russia is in the position to actually win that game of chicken in the short term. It's possible he could win. But it's by no means certain. I think you particularly with the Russians. You can make the argument that they're in a better position. Stand a price worth in Saudi Arabia. If only because Russia is less dependent on fuel exports of Ford's economy and they have a much larger reserves of foreign currency at the moment. So they can probably hold out longer by that measure in terms of the United States I think. Nbs is really calling trump's bluff in that if he continues to drive down the price of oil any precipitates a global recession. That's not particularly good for president. Trump's reelection prospects so the short term costs for the. Us is great but in the longer term the real risk is that the Saudis will simply deplete there slowly dwindling oil resources in that. They will delay the moment when shoppers in the states and Canada can compete under all conditions. Okay so he might be determined to or possibly going to push the world into a recession. Saudi pretty close because the corona virus. And you say that. He's doing all of this in his his interest. What are his interest. What do you think the end game that? Mbbs is his Co. What does he have in mind for this oil war I think? Short term objective is to increase revenues the Saudi economy under strain. And that makes it more difficult for us to buy off the scent in opposition and he wants to be in the strongest possible position to facilitate is succession of his father. More broadly he not only wants to be King of Saudi Arabia. You want to be the King of Saudi Arabia. That is a dominant international player of the very least a regional hegemony in the Middle East North Africa but maybe even on a more global scale a decisive player and for Saudi Arabia. Its greatest asset remains. It's a petroleum wealth and if Saudi Arabia cannot dictate the market For fuel it really has no chance of being such a dynamic and critical international actor so this is make or break for for Mohammed bin Salman in a very real sense already looking at some of the other things that the Saudi crown prince has initiated or help to initiate a war in Yemen. That is is one of the world's greatest disasters the murder of the journalist. Jamal Kashogi when he does things like this are these calculated moves or are they impulsive. They are impulses. But I don't think Mohammed bin Salman recognizes. He's being impulsive in his mind. These impulses or brilliant strategy he. He views himself as. I don't think he'd uses term almost as a Bismarck as someone who is playing in a three dimensional chess chess while everyone else's checkers but in reality he's just reacting overreacting onto short-term developments often digging himself a bigger all than the one occupied previously but he seems almost clinically incapable of modulating his actions of calibrating them to anticipate the feedback from from others who could be affected by them as almost a narcissistic foreign policy. Where exclusively sees things through? Saudi is and regardless of the reactions of others use unwilling to recalculate the calculus of any given decision. We know we saw president. Trump didn't seem to be phased by the killing of Jim knocker Shoji he's still remained a loyal to the crown prince now this is messing with the US stock market and as well and gas production. What's president trump likely to do about? Mvs there is a greater chance that president trump will do something about The price war than any of the other actions M. has taken whether the killing of Choky the war in Yemen the kidnapping of the Lebanese prime minister much like NBS. And I think this is part of the reason that trump has such a warm relationship with him on trump is a narcissistic individual. Who believes the ends justify on means there doesn't appear to be any moral calculus play in determining what's acceptable or appropriate and for trump? It's very easy to see. How a global recession precipitated by Oil Price War would hurt his election prospects and we know that donald trump doesn't take kindly to actions he perceives as detrimental to his own personal standing in his own personal objectives. I think at least on. A percentage basis president trump is more likely to respond aggressively to this move than all of the the blood spilling and human rights violations. We've seen from MBA today. We're going to leave it there. Mr Miller I appreciate speaking with you. Thank you my pleasure. Andrew Miller is the deputy director for policy of the project on Middle East democracy. We reached him in Washington. Dc It could be the end of a golden age for pizza. Despite the controversy as it happens has always boldly confronted the divisive issue of Pineapple on Pizza. We've spoken with the late samples. The Canadian man who claimed to have invented the Hawaiian Pizza. And we've held the president of Iceland accountable for his claim that the fruit toppings should be banned. Now a Montreal. Pizza chain has settled debate once and for all at least among its own clientele but Carol Pizzeria asked diners to vote on whether pineapple belongs on pizza and if the majority voted no it would be taken off the menu for Good Tomaso moulet. Is the CO founder of Makarov Pizzeria? We reached him in Montreal. Tomaso we can't wait to hear. The results of your pool are Hawaiian pieces off the menu for good. Well the The Post data. That's a fifty. Three percents voted no and But still it's still a hot debate even after the fall so I don't know I guess I'm going to have to talk with Angelo and see what the what we're GONNA DO GOING FORWARD. But we had said that it wasn't going to be on the menu anymore friends in. Quebecer often more just as controversial after the vote and fifty three percent would be for some quebeckers as strong majority right. Okay so So what why did you do this? Why did you have a poll to see what people thought of Pineapple on Pizza? Well we had the pool because we knew that it was a was a hot topic to begin with and it was very Shall we say controversial? But we didn't think it was was almost fifty fifty yes or no. We did it because we wanted to see what our clients actually wanted and offering somebody pizza. For months I think was Was a pretty dea so I I believe Carol. One and she I'm sure she's GONNA enjoy with bipolar without makes you know that the Carroll is not me it's Carol Thiessen I guess who won right Carol. Sorry I feel free to come by for some pizza whenever you're in Montreal Nasa Lion Pizza Pantley Well maybe maybe I can talk to Angelo and he. He is a chef after all. So we could. We could maybe work something just to taste that pizza because to be totally honest when when Angelo came up with the recipe. I'm not I'm not a fan. I'm not a fan of Pineapple on pizza because we're never. It was never something that we grew up in a household. You know we come from a very Italian Background and and our parents never when there's such a thing let's just put it that way as as as nice as I can say but He made a pizza with pineapple. Ricarda Bacon Jalapeno tomato sauce. Go much there other which which actually tastes pretty good. So I can't say I can't see that I am not going to see that I would order it but when you teach this is actually delicious. And it's called Hawaiian five. O This pizza but why Hawaii five zero correct okay but now if you say that it still might be on the menu even after this well the people have spoken to my so I mean how can we go back on that. I didn't say I didn't say it was still going. I said that we we we. We decided on lever wins. They we'll go either way so right now. The people spoken fifty three percents. No so we have to take it off the menu. And then you know maybe it will be another referendum in four years know that we have we've interviewed before he passed away. We did interview semper novelist the founder the the man who invented Hawaiian Pizza and So and we found out on this program how passionate people are one way or another about pineapple on pizza did were you surprised to see what kind of reaction you got. Very when people would walk in the restaurant. We'll take a look at me and they would say either no and just walk to the table or yes. I love pineapple so I like I I you know in the beginning. The first week of February I wasn't sure what what what what was going on but already people were like really adamant about which side you're on but you know as far as a cuisine goes. I mean. This was a Canadian invention. I mean is there no? Is there no patriotism involved in here any? I guess it's Quebec so maybe people aren't as inclined to care about that. But you know this was this was this was invented this part of our culture yes yes and and and and we had it on the menu for for a while. So I'm not GonNa say that we we didn't we didn't try to to bring it out to to the masses. We WE DID. But we set up this voting process so because you know finally figure out if it belongs or if it didn't and unfortunately The or fortunately the no one or unfortunately depending on but We're GONNA just have to deal with with with the voters Clinton now. What what is your family in Italy? What did they say about you having the Hawaii? Five O having Hawaiian Pizza Well if if if and when my my my dog would have seen the the pineapple He would've looked at it with disgust. And then just walked away from that would have been even a question you know we. We always eat very We have very strict Mediterranean diet with leaders of olive oil and Made a sauce and garlic pineapple ingredients. Unfortunately okay so this means that you don't have to lie about your menu when you found that you can still hold your head high and say no. We don't have pizza. That is correct. That is correct all right to Moscow. I'm sure we're going to hear from people because this is a big issue on as it happens and I really isn't so yeah I'm for you too and good to talk to you. Thanks Nice to talk to you carol. Thank you very much by Tomaso. Moola is the CO founder of Karo Pizzeria. We reached him in Montreal. That pizza chain is not the first entity to suggest that pineapple on pizza should be banned back in two thousand eighteen. We called up the president of Iceland to have him defend his controversial threat to ban the topping. Here's part of president. Good Need Johannesson's conversation with Carol. President you harness and I'm going to get right to the point here. What is your problem with Pineapple on Pizza? Well I was asked a question and I had to give honest answer. I have nothing against pineapples but When they're put on a Sunday get all sort of mushy and I have five children in with him on school trips and so on so forth and the undeniable fact. Is that more often than not. When you have Hawaiian pizza the pineapples are taken off and left whereas the rest of the pizza is consumed so I had to reply in all honesty when I was asked about this debatable issue that I actually didn't like painful pizzas. Okay but you went one step further didn't you? You didn't tell your children take the pineapple after a good enough. You don't like it. You wanted to ban Pineapple on pizza. That's how far you yes. That's where you know. The influence of this office sort of got the better of me should wear and I went to step too. Far admits that now on the opposite happened I had to issue a clarification. After I had voiced my opinion in college up in northern Pasta Iceland on the following day. This was front page news. So yes I had to think it through and calm these stormy waters and I issued a statement the Presidential Statement on Pineapples on Pizza. It went like this. I like pineapples just pizza. I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapple on a pizza. I am glad that I hold such power. Presidents should not have unlimited power. I would not want to hold this position if I could pass laws forbidding that which I don't like I recommend cheap. Who was my statement and I stand by. That is landed president. Good New Johansen. Speaking with Carol in two thousand eighteen as the corona virus continues to spread. Europe is starting to feel the strain as we told you earlier in the program. Italy has surpassed over ten thousand cases of Cova Nineteen and has extended its quarantine to the entire country. Meanwhile Spain and Germany are seeing a rising number of cases as France. Where at least thirty? Three people have died and some sixteen hundred more are infected and today. French President Emmanuel macron warned. His country is only at the beginning of the outbreak for one Frenchman. That outbreak is personal. Dr Jonathan Peterson is a family doctor. Who recently contracted cove at Nineteen? He and his family currently in self quarantine at their home in. Amherst villa in the northeast of France. And that's where we reached him. Jonathan first of all. How are you and members of your family? How are they doing? How are they feeling? Yes so I'd say for me Michael Kids and my wife We we will I would say healthy now but to my extended family my brothers and their kids. We all infected and I have a tool members of my family that have been a little worse than us but they are stable and they are very conscious Today we can take good. How many members of your family than have been affected by covert Nineteen I'd say eighteen a got three kids that have been tested but the test is hard to do. So so it was not conclusive for those treats were between eighteen and twenty one. How did the virus enter into your family? How how was it brought in? Do you think so. We all went to praying fasting week in our church. You're in a in you lose. This is Paris during lent. I guess a year Between Seventeen and twenty one very in the there was a lot of people there on the from many places in the faster disgusting week. I was sick because I felt very Very some muscle pain and said you have no fewer but loves the smell of horrors but the main idea was like okay. I got some or something and when I heard of this Disposable case thinking maybe could be that but I said Okay I will ask Myra Agency of Health and they told me okay Don't open the office and go go get the test and then it was pleading so I was very surprised because expected I did the test just too short for my patients. So you Corinthian yourself and then what about your kids? When did you decide that everyone would be under quarantine of course When I heard that I was acquisitive. my family was I wouldn't say forbidden but encouraged to stay home. And they were tested the data so when we almost all went positive we ultimately Stayed home for a for the warranty for people who might have to consider or maybe are having to go under quarantine and wondering. Gosh how am I going to do that with? What's your advice Managing with four kids Of course you have to to change a lot of things in your habits and the for the kids because four kids in young ages they need to change activities a lot so we tried two games with them to explain them the situation. We do a lot of all marks that the school sent to us and we try to leave normally but inside of the house and when you become a bit long for them we'll go back to the busiest weekly okay. We don't do that for ourselves. We do it for us. They understand that their wealth. And how long have you been doing this now for no today is the eight? I wouldn't colluded very good. But it's the ace eight number eight. You sound like you're keeping them entertained. What does that having on you and your wife that you have two kids at home your home all day with. That's that's why I would say I think We get tired. Not because of the virus died because of the kids full of and the sometimes I tried to keep predicates with me slow. She can stay alone or just with the last one and the we tried to put them not early but very early to boats so we got the we get the the night for us as more and more people are going to have to live with this with a kind of quarantine. What what do you say to them? I mean there are those who regarded as their civic duty. Its responsibility for that sells for others and others who regard this as stopping imposing on their personal freedom. What what do you say? Yeah I'd say for me. What is important for all of us now because probably the virus will get everywhere will will most is to is to get what we say. Yes no collective intelligence to think if I do it. It's not a for me only it's for everybody and when you do it for someone else you do it for yourself too because when it's like you know vaccine and when too few people get vaccine The sickness will credit when these two people will take some measure measures white not quarantine but there is a lot of other things to do so for me and my suddenly it doesn't change anything. We got the virus relieve with it and we will get better and we are will be held very soon. I think but I don't go outside photos because some people will get very very bad and ended for them that we will have to do it. You might just be cautious in your normal life. Like WASHING HANDS LIKE SNEEZING. The elbow like don't go to place his crowded stuff like that. So it's common sense but not obligatory the quarantine we. We spoke with medical coordinator in Milan. Yesterday he said that people are just going to have to learn how to behave to behave properly. And that's his advice. Good advice because what I tried to express to. My patients are people that are cool to get some news these that one of the biggest challenge I think for the authorities and for the medical staff is to be able to take care of those will need. It really need it. I mean that when you got fear when you afraid of something that you don't know you could have some reactions. That will help anybody. I think that this could nineteen. It's not the name of the sickness that is to be feared. It's the gravity of the symptoms of the people on that's important. I hope that you and your family are recover completely. I know you got a couple of people who are quite ill and I appreciate you speak with us. Thank you thank you very much. Good Night Dr Jonathan. Peter Smith is a family practitioner. Who's under self quarantine at home? After contracting covert nineteen we reached in Amherst villa in the northeast of France. And you can find more on that story in the as it happens website. Cbc DOT CA Slash Ai. H France has seen more than sixteen hundred cases of covert nineteen and meanwhile other countries in Europe are still hoping to restrict the spread of corona virus including the Netherlands. Today Dutch Prime Minister Mark. Rutta held a press conference urging people to forego handshakes when greeting one another. This is what happened as he and a health official wrapped up. That briefing calls over over over got the new mayor of Dutch Prime Minister Mark. Rutta apologizing for shaking the hand of a health official who had helped him deliver an address aimed at stopping handshakes during the corona virus outbreak. I guess some habits are hard to shake I'm going to venture guest that someone you know does Yoga. You may even have done a downward dog or to yourself these days. We seem to live in a Lululemon world but at public schools in Alabama. Teaching Yoga is illegal. Jeremy Gray wants to change that position. Mr Gray's representative in the Alabama state legislature. He's also a former yoga teacher. And a former football player with the Saskatchewan rough riders. We reached him in Montgomery Alabama. Mr Gray can you explain? Why IS YOGA? Forbidden Alabama schools so in Nineteen Ninety three the State School Board Kinda got which some legislators and some lobbyists that will real pro-christian and they came to basically the consensus that yoga practice of hypnosis and it tied to Hindu religion but it is tied to the Hindu religion. So what what was thinking. Basically what they're saying is is that it is a religion though so instead of saying that it was something that was part of the Indian culture and exercise. This have been brought over here to the Western civilization. They're basically saying that to do. Yoga is to basically practice. Hinduism and it was the issue that it was that would contradict Christianity. Yes why have you said to change that you personally? I came into a situation where I was doing a class around just civic engagement and Yoga came up and once I kinda say the word. Everybody's kind of looked at me kind of like it was a bad where and come to find out. Is that the high. School was actually doing yoga classes and offering as elective and they had to stop doing because parents threatened to sue the school and so they had to basically stop all yoga practice. They changed the name to Scratch or mindfulness but it didn't work because it associated with Yoga and that day I found out that it was banned in nineteen ninety-three and so from that. I just became advocate for so I was elected in two thousand eighteen and this issue I took up in my first session. And there's the deal is signed bill from last year and when I introduced a bill last year it got out of the committee but they wouldn't let it get to the floor and it was nominated for the Shroud Award Shroud. A war means. It's the data's bill in session and a lot of my colleagues. They laughed at the bill. Thousands of jobs have you. Did you explain to them your own experiences with Yoga why you were an advocate for Yoga? Yes in their public hearing. I spoke about Yoga. And what is what it has done for me. I have proponents came in and spoke and so they knew. The benefits of it is just that throughout history. Every time yoga came up they always thought it. It was always about Your lobbyist groups. There were more pro Christianity and so it was just something that they felt like. They didn't belong and kicked him to a public school. You got into Yoga as you were transitioning out of being a football player. Not you're worth this. Got To an rough riders earlier point and transitioning into becoming a politician. So how did yoga help you? Well actually got into Yoga just being an athlete in general that's part of just athletes regiment. Like especially in when you start playing professional football like I was insubstantial and oh no off days. They were bringing in Yoga instructors and we wouldn't do yoga to basically hit with recovery and I'll flexibility and so to me. It was just something that I did because of sports and then once I started teaching it. I started learning the mental aspects of legislation. You're proposing nor to get yoga into schools. You've got to introduce some limits to that what limitations so 'cause you know when I introduced the bill it was against it and so the compromise was there if I could take some of the things that they deemed threatening like the Mondro then the group and all that out that it will have a more favorable report right and so I took everything out and accept the breathing the scratching and the meditation. They wanted me to take the meditation now but I told them was. It was impossible for me to take the medication out. And so we settle for those three things and everything else came out of it but there are some who would argue including many people who practice yoga that it cannot be separated from is traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism. That they are inherently part of you. You can basically do sun salutation. This necessarily secular that it is part of it. What would you say to that well so we talked about yoga and just the Western civilization? You Have Kristen Yoga. You have go yoga. You have all these different components of Yoga. I don't believe that every version of yoga has all those accidents in it. You know I never learned. Went out of the athlete was doing yoga about anything that deal with Hinduism. It was just part of our routine. We did it. The only reason that I really understood it on the deepest level is because I started teaching it and I became certified in it and then I understood in his full essence. But if I'm trying to do a temperament breathing or mindfulness program and it's about the concentration up there breath I mean I don't actually need all the elements. Yeah they hip. But if I'm looking at something that I'm trying to get in the school and get it and if I just keep it down to those three things Dan. I have to do that because other than that. Then you can't do it so it was still have some kind of maybe not the whole thing but we couldn't do yoga for like thirty years and now we have the chance to at least how free right. Maybe we can work from this. Maybe we can add some of those things then. Once people are at ease but right now. I just don't think that we could get past will be watching to see how how you do with this. Mr Gray and And thank you. Thank you for speaking with us. No problems Jeremy. Gray is a state representative in Alabama. He's also a former NFL player. He was in Montgomery Alabama. And you can find more on the story on our website. Cbc DOT CA Slash Ai. H New Brunswick School. Bus driver Pat Jepson needs a new kidney. So he's leaving his home in Mira machine heading to Halifax where. His surgery is scheduled for later this week and he won't be alone. He'll be with Natalie Wood's who used to be a passenger on his school bus and will now be his kidney donor. Ms Woods decided to give Mister Jefferson kidney after seeing a plea for a donor in a facebook post over the weekend the CBC's Gail Harding sat down with Pat. Jefferson and Natalie Wood's me as woods talking about responding to that post one of my students and now now driving perk hits home from school and so small world tat was my favorite bus driver. He was the nicest one there can't remember him because there was one day that he came. He came to pick us up and he was wearing big cloud leak. And I'll never forget that once. It's all done and over that. Don't have to go to dialysis anymore and I hope to continue my job healthier and more vibrant than before. Do you know why the weight has been so long. When you knew you've been a viable mash this long. We found out that two doctors left Halifax Hospital. And they've been trying to replace so basically. We're saying that it's just waiting to get doctors and and the backlog of trying to catch up and it was very frustrating so as I say we we decided to get our La Michelle Conroy. Involved than she was calling the health minister of New Brunswick in helping. New Brunswick is calling the Health Minister Nova Scotia. And they're all trying to work together and try to make this happen so but it's still it's dragged out mostly it's frustrating when you know you have a donor and then all of a sudden you gotta wait wait then once it happened like we've been on a high so forgetting things so you're really now counting the hours till this is going to have found. Is We go snowstorm to drive down? Jebsen Natalie Wood's from Mir Machine New Brunswick speaking with the CBC.

Long and on Saturday in the town of Lauderdale no France. Three thousand four hundred fifty nine. Humans join together to celebrate that philosophy by smirking for at least a portion of the day. They gathered in blue face paint and blobby white hats to break the world record for most people in smurfs costumes in one place at one time here are two of them. What I do Sir coaches first. The woman said that setting the record was important adding the corona viruses. No big deal. It's nothing her companion said. There's no risk were smurfs. And then she added. Yes we're GONNA smurfs is. The Corona virus will that is just completely wrong and frankly shows shocking ignorance. The verb isn't Murph arise. It's Murph they're going to smirnoff the corona virus except of course they're they're not in fact by gathering on mass like that they're basically asking the Corona Virus Murph them which is why the mayor of London no is defending the smurfs event. Today we must not stop living. He told John's Franz Press. It was the chance to say we are alive while. I'm not sure that's all it said. No wonder everyone's mad at them. They really smart it up and their critics are just getting started. They barely even scratched the smurfs. You've been listening to the as it happens.

The Canadian race car driver Robert wiccans is back this time in a virtual indycar race. You hear from him coming up soon. I though a different type of road story already this is pretty drysdale and I am going on what You couldn't tell if word there is pressure. Seeing people never caused a sense of panic Ever for me before but now it's like an obstacle course. I feel like a video game where the goal is to avoid human contact video game. It sounds familiar. It can feel like you're playing a life size version of Super Mario leaping off curbs bobbing between cars. Dodging your neighbors okay. A runner coming toward me and luckily my sweet is quite quite yet so he took the road and I took the side. We navigated that seamlessly frequently though Britney Drysdale faces uncertainty. Who will take the road who will take the sidewalk and then there are unforeseen complications. Okay turned the corner on the streets on toward me. Come to a human adult walking their bicycles pushing their bikes on the sidewalk. Now sidewalk is wide enough for the three of us at the best of times. Now add six feet between plus two bikes. That doesn't add up. That's Improv comedian. Brittany Drysdale on a jaunt around her Toronto neighbourhood. All of this to maintain a good two meter distance and some laments to avoid flying moisture from the joggers who are out on our streets. These days finding space is a challenge for runners to James. Paul from knows all about that. He's a runner from Langley. British Columbia James Good morning morning. What role does running play in? Your Life? I a big role I mean. It's it's part of my everyday life actually so we As a family. We run My wife runs Iran. We just You know it's one of the things that Helps YOU ESCAPE? Helps you manage your health and just Keeps you going and right now? You're training for a long race. Yeah Tony for a hundred miler in September so it hasn't hasn't been canceled yet so fingers crossed. I know a lot of racism canceled. But this one's still hanging on so you know unfortunate but it is an Oregon so you know it does face some other challenges but Yeah it's been. It's been tricky tricky in part because I mean this is a tricky time to train. You might actually want to get it and run more because You could offer you a bit of a release from the anxiety that you're feeling but how how is running changed for you since the arrival of this pandemic well the They've shut down a lot of the trails. I live in Columbia and All the trails have been shut down. So that's been a challenge so we've had to find a lot of You know local Roads are local trails and whatnot. And we KINDA. It's it's tough. You know it's sort of you know the usually I'll run with Lake Ren groups You know we'll run with friends that makes it. You know. Run is not an individual sport right. It is although you're by yourself you're usually with a group of people team and so forth so it's kind of challenging sense to sort of get motivated at times but you know it's just something you gotta do. You GotTa get done so you kind of find. Those options are available to you so when you go out. How do people react when they see you? Running by. I've been most people are pretty good. I think that some of them are just sort of you know they. They see you coming. I think you know for run yesterday and I saw a lot of people that just sorta they see you coming. They're like Oh what do you do right like you know? It's like they got the big look on their face and the startled them you like. I've done a few times. He sort of find an alternate way to go whether or not. I'm taking a right or Latin. Your route changes constantly. You're not you're not. You know. We like to go out or so myself. I like to go out like planned route around the neighborhood. But that's GonNa be completely different by the end of it right so if you spent any time on social media you'll know that there are a lot of people who are not very happy with people who are out running right now and then it means they say that. You're you know spraying things in our direction. That you're not practicing proper social distancing you come up behind. Us quickly on the Sidewalk. And what are we supposed to have? You heard about that. I have heard some situations Couple of runners posted a group of people. Kinda yelling at that. Or you know telling them that to go home or whatnot It it is challenging. I think the you know in terms of what we do. And what people do I mean? We gotta do our best to keep that distance and for myself. I definitely you know all you go another way or go around them or find some kind of you know if we come down like the other day actually came down like an alley way and it was sort of like a standoff. You know what I mean between being another runner so you just gotTa get there and you WanNa turn you know you turn around and go with the opposite way or something you I think that you know if we keep a maintain the the most distance as possible. And you know everybody's pretty pretty good in that sense but It has been you know different different challenge especially when you're in a small quarters and so forth and the there's not a lot there's bikes going by sometimes lose this study that came out from Belgian and Dutch researchers. It hasn't been peer reviewed but it got a lot of attention certainly yesterday saying that runners might expel droplets further than people. Who are just walking Tisch. Toil Bakers Professor Public Health at the University of Calgary have listened to what she says when it comes to tips for runners before you do know about your location. So are you running in a place where it's going to be very busy than that's not going to be okay to think about the time of day? Lots of people run at noon or whatever so don't run at times when it's going to be crowded you should be running solo. Think about the fact that don't do a really really hard work. Oh in the sense that if you're training for a marathon than that's not what you should be doing right now get your immune system a break but no that thirty to sixty minutes of brisk walk or run does help our immune system. What do you think about that? That means now's not the time to be training for a race. Were all in this difficult situation. And you don't need to go and be grinding it out on busy sidewalks. Yeah absolutely I mean You know fortunately for myself a little bit early in the training program but You know it's definitely something that you know. People need to be considered and and you know I read that article as well and you know. Even she suggesting like ten meters apart. If you're going to be running by people or or or encounter another runner and so forth I mean for myself. I tend to to link to give everybody as much distance as possible. And you know I think that I mean I've come up. If I have to get close to people I try to hold my breath and just sort of. It's a counter productive thing but at the same time you know do whatever you you be free myself as well as the other people. I can't imagine somebody running by. I'm not a heavy breather. But I do know some runners that are heavier than sort of running by somebody. You WanNa Kinda. You gotta be considerate. You know what I mean. We're out here. Doing running people are trying to get some fresh air. You don't WanNa everybody's going through a rough time right now right so I mean it's something that we all. Kinda gotta work together and so forth good advice James Thank you. Yeah for sure no problem. James Palframan is a runner and Langley. British Columbia pandemic is forcing us new ways to figure out how to share our sidewalks and our streets. All of her Moore is an urban affairs reporter for the Global Mail and joins me from trauma Oliver. Good morning to you. Not Having me on our streets. It seems like at least in my neighborhood look like marathon courses. There are a lot of people who are out. Running there are a lot of people are walking as well and the sidewalks. Streets can get congested. You tweeted that. We need a new walking etiquette. What should that etiquette look like? Well that's right to say I'm I can't be prescriptive about this and you could argue that social etiquette is what we all collectively agree on but I will say tweak got a huge response including from people who said that's thrown at us off the top of my head courtesy and a lot of people said that's how we should be walking anyway pandemic notwithstanding and you know maybe that's the case but perhaps it's even more important now when we're in a little like an illness is caused by respiratory droplets. Your previous guests talked about considerations. That's all it boils down to. I mean the ideas I put out there. Were essentially basic courtesy on how to share a space. And there's some extent what we do anyway. When we're walking we need to have a little bit more of a gaffe than usual. What should we shouldn't be doing for example? You've got a couple of walking down the sidewalk handicap against something. They're happy but if they're approaching someone else perhaps they should go single file behind each other as opposed to walking abreast. You know what you've got a dog keep it on a leash and Worcester portrayed. Don't walk with yourself on one side of the sidewalk and the dog on a leash on the other side of the sidewalk. Affectively taking the whole side one. I can look ahead down the sidewalk and you see someone with wheels wheelchair stroller. A baby buggy Whatever the case may be considering that you may be or probably involved in that person so give up the stakes. Give them the right away You know in all cases residential areas that road so I would stress that very careful. You're going around because although it was way less traffic than usual at least Toronto. A lot of drivers are driving much faster. All the the open road works on the instinct and people are speeding up so I would. I would be remiss if I didn't say to be careful on the don't just goes a little bit to the point of runners. Is You know it's just might say don't walk voice. Don't Walk Nicely. Thank you wisely. It's don't Louise don't don't get out your does I mean argued. These are things we should be. You know the best practice always but maybe it's even more important now. What about running is again trying to stay fit and people. Use It as mobile meditation as well as are there ways to figure out how you can do that and be active without crowding people space in a in a congested area at the best of times. That's a tricky one. I I am not a runner. I like people looking city line. I have a walker if you're able walks part of the daily life I don't WANNA get involved. Walker runner fight over how sidewalk but I will say that. I don't know where wondering should go on the sidewalk I'm sure was. Don't want them at the bike lane. A lot of cases. It's not safe for them to be on the road. So we're there should be. I guess they should be on the sidewalk I think the previous guess probably have good ideas about how to start. People run up beside them and suddenly appears approval. Your be aware that yours. A faster percents and it's somewhat on Youtube safely around other people. We've been hearing some cities across this country towns as well are looking at changing how their cities work so that there's more space for people to get outside. Get a bit of fresh air. But also safely practice the physical distancing. What's been going on well that that is a good news in all this for pedestrians because the silver lining if we can call it that is that right or recognizing that the sidewalks space they have set aside for pedestrians. You simply offering this time. Even if they're a few pedestrians it's still got it. And if you look at trying to residential sidewalks unless one the other day it's five feet so if you're not going to road or if there's parts cars attractive or whatever you got going road you simply are within that six foot gap. She's not places like Vancouver. Close Down Park two cars and it was just yesterday. And I don't know geography of WHO said what this indicates but a road of seawall one later tropic wonder actually trump is traffic is closed to vehicles to create space for pedestrians cyclists Calgary has done some of the same. We'll take on it once all a royal. That's the clothes off some space to cars and to create that space for pedestrians so they can spread out and you know walk. Think they know what we hear every day. Stay home stay home. But that is sean as we also hear from you know. The medical officer of Health for example is that outdoor activity is good for you. It is good for mental. Health is good for your physical. Even do it safely. It's spread out so he's tried to make that happen. Why isn't this happening in in the biggest city in Canada in Toronto where the sidewalks as you say are five feet wide and there isn't really space for people to To safely get past each other. Well that's an interesting question. What the city has said is a couple of answers that they don't really think it's the best use of staff to create these spaces and stuff or busy doing other things. They argue that it would have to be policed and enforced They think they're concerned that it could sense about street festival. Message that people would congregate in these places. I mean. I've talked to. You said that that that's pretty to launch the sense that this is not a street festival. I mean there will be no bouncy castle. There will be no face painting or buskers like that There's there's nothing to walk people through this accept the fact that they're going to be able to walk safely and the other thing. Is that if you spreading throughout the city. You're not reduce any chance of one of them becoming a destination. The other reasons that some people have speculated I have inserted where this is the case. But there's that you know that small conservatives in Toronto but doesn't always like change and there may be a concern that if this is done but Australia might really like having that. Hey and might not be super willing to give it up when this on his own. There are some communities that need that space though. We've been talking about how you know. The idea of social distancing physical distancing working from home is a privilege and a luxury because there are a lot of people if they live in high rises. If they're lower who still need to go to work. How does that idea of physical distancing on roads and sidewalks play in when it comes if you're talking about class when he gets a hugely important issue because a lot of there's a message around this exchanging more recently but it seemed to be rooted in the idea of kind of middle class living in a house out as an act? Get fresh air in your backyard. Well a lot of people are trying to go back or across the country or across the country exactly Got on a huge number of people who have moved in around Young Street downtown Toronto and the promise effectively there was you live in a small space. Give up your personal space and living quarters point of view retired. You'll get as your public space. Obviously unusual situation right now but that deal has Clinton broke it down and if you have people who don't have a balcony. They don't even have an open window in a lot of cases. Don't have a backyard. They go outside and young street the Superhero sidewalks. It is difficult to say to those people if you have a backyard. It's a bit awkward if you don't have a backyard of how they should be outside. Be considerate and don't Walk Mois? -Ly some good advice Oliver. Thank you Oliver. Moore is an urban affairs reporter for the Global Mail. He was in Toronto Bird. My Name's Galloway. You're listening to the current. Mclaughlin is slicing time out of Scott speed. It's down to six point. Eight seconds now with thirteen to go watch the young Kiwi surge from second-place towards the former echoes. Rubber wiccans out in to the gravel traps. What are they credible? Save from WICCANS? I can't believe he hung onto. That still has that left front wing damage. Wow I was indeed a close call at points. He was barely hanging on but Robert Wickens pulled through last weekend. The Canadian driver finished eighth in that INDYCAR challenge didn't even leave his house. Because of covert nineteen the League has started holding online races using virtual driving. Simulators that's not the only thing that made this race special for Robert Wickens. It was this. I returned to racing after an accident that left him paralyzed below the chest in two thousand eighteen. Robert Wickens. Good morning how you doing. How did it feel to be back behind the wheel? That's just how I imagined it no Schmitz it's such a weird time right. It's it You know I I one thing joking aside. I always knew that my my return back to a race car was always going to evolve a simulator at the beginning so I think this is an exciting exciting time for me. Obviously once I get out of the simulator you kind of remember what the current world situations in takes the fun out of it but honestly it's it felt so good to to get back behind the wheel and to and to drive something again. What does the simulator rig look like? Can you just describe it quickly yet? So it has a full racing seat At the similar angle of of how L- A race car would be position. And it's really it obviously doesn't resemble a race car But it it feels like you're in one the the position. You're where your legs are the waiters seating the way it's reclined the position of the steering wheel And then I have a three screens. Three monitors set up around me to give me more of a full view experience But it's it's it's not It's not like you're playing playstation in In your basement you know. It's it's it's a really proper peace machinery and when you when you got in there for the first time. I mean given the fact that you hadn't been behind the wheel since two thousand eighteen. Did it feel like it was a first step? Did feel like this is getting closer to where I WANNA be. No you're you're exactly right it. It was such an exciting moment for me. Because you know it's motorsports isn't shy to admit that it's very expensive industry and to test in Indycar on a racetrack. There are so many expenses that people forget about. You need rent the facility You need to employees that your engineers mechanics airfare hotels your tires fuel. You need to have someone from Chevrolet to be present. Even start the engine You know it's a big undertaking to get an indycar driving around a racetrack And for me to try to figure out what I need for my hand controls Because of my promises you know it's it's very expensive undertaking. We go all the way to Florida in the wintertime To try Dr Drive into with the hand controls we've developed in. I do half a lap and I realized that something's wrong has that one's in the wrong spot or whatnot Waste of money So we always knew simulation was going to be the best strict for that to try figure out until I'm happy with a hand control solution. Then we take it full-scale what's the last thing you remember before The crash in two thousand eighteen That's a tough one in I. I get that question a lot and unfortunately I can never provide a great answer. You know I remember. I remember the start of the race and honestly that's that's pretty much it but the odd thing is is. I didn't remember the start of the race until I saw the replay really Which was probably months after the accident. yet it's just the weird thing. I don't remember the autograph session the Before the race. They don't remember waking up. I don't remember anything from Sunday. Really from Race Day just. After I saw the footage of the accident I remember the start. I remember trying to pass will try. I remember passing two cars around the outside of term London. Then trying to Get the third guy on the inside of the Second Corner Win Win. It all went bad but unfortunately that's really all remember from from the accident. You come out of this. You're told you're never going to walk again. And then you're on this path to try and get back into a car. One of the things you said was was that you vowed to get back into the race car. Why would you say that? I mean given that this this experienced nearly killed you. Why was it so important for you? I mean you know it's it's my love is my passion. I if if you love real estate near Realtor to give up because you then closed out you know I mean obviously the the examples not exactly the same snake's bit higher for your for your occupation. They are they are but it's also as soon as he put the helmet on your your understanding the risks. That are involved in. I started racing in. Go karts with my family. When I was seven years old. You know I quit playing hockey. I had to stop playing basketball football baseball. I was a kid and we had to stop it all because of the cost of of motor sports and that was already a sacrifice. My family told me when I was seven. You know if you want to try racing you have to stop all of your sports with all your friends. House like yeah. Let's give it a shot. I Really WanNa do and thankfully I was. I was stubborn back. Then as I am now it it worked out but it I WANNA get back because it's it's by a love to do and is that the plan that to get back on the track and some time later I mean assuming the world comes back to normal sometime later on this summer I think that's probably a little premature. It's it's tough right. Because from an engineering standpoint to get a race car first off safe never made to drive and then secondly With hand controls. That can make me competitive. You know because in in racing we're talking about tents and one. Hundreds of a second are big differences and for the biggest undertaking. We're trying to figure out right now is with the entity. Indycar for example when the driver hits the Brake Like a turn three in turn one in Toronto for for the Honda Indy. Right we're hitting the break with approximately three hundred pounds of physical force on the brake pedal. We don't have brake boosters. Like in a road car So just think of the sheer power that that goes into that and for me with not being able to use my my legs. We need to figure out a way to develop that with my arms. But you're stubborn guy. I have the sense that you're going to get there. I think we're GONNA find it one way or another. You know. I think there's days where my teams very motivated and I think the Arrow McLaren s p guys are just as motivated as I am but there's also days where I I can tell really bugging them. Because they have a big jobless they still have to run their their day today race team and then I'm constantly giving them options. Good luck on that. It's great to talk to you about what you're up to. Thanks so much. Thank you Robert. Wickens Canadian racecar driver. Who is on his way? Hopefully back to the track racing virtually now. This is the current. We're back in ninety seconds. Stay WITH US. Hi. I'm Matt Galloway. You're listening to the current. Good afternoon. How you hold up. Pollution isn't getting to. You hasn't been too bad to be on the phone a lot and do a lot of face time and is not quite the same but definitely helps. That's David McGinley. He's a Halifax hospital chaplain visiting a cancer patient. This is a particularly the only time to be a patient. Many aren't allowed visitors. And for those who are dying. It has to be unimaginably difficult over the years as chaplain has sought with hundreds of cancer patients in their final moments. David McGinley continues his work through this pandemic and it may be that some. What he's experiencing can actually help us all David McKinley. Good Morning. Good Morning. Welcome back to this program thank you. How would you describe this time that we're in this period that we're in right now? Oh an existential irony. my patients have been teaching me about all all along that ultimately simple things are most important to love each other to Be a decent human being and we can do that by washing our hands and and staying six feet away That the essential things of life of always been consistent this crisis realize our perspectives for perception. Our priorities hopefully evoking. What is most noble within us? What is it been like for these patients that you sat with over the last few weeks? These are difficult times For them at the best of times and then this complicates things. I'm sure in in other ways. And what does that been like for them? Oh it's It's quite a contrast. I have Everyone of course is aching for their family to be present. They're scared and when we have deep level and we feel loved we feel safe even though the world is scary and our patients or isolated but time and time again. I witnessed this noble expression from the saying By not having my family here. I'm protecting the staff and patients which is lovely But they also weep and they can get on his time as you heard that young patients say So I try to go in there and not a replacement to incriminate. The compassionate can and help them wrestle with this deep within their hearts and Bring the best of themselves for the worst part of life. What are the rules in Nova Scotia when IT COMES TO PATIENTS? Who are dying. When are they are? They allowed to have any visitors. Yeah patients who are dying can have two people with them but it must be the same people he can't rotate and It's hard I'm sitting with the patient Just last week and she was saying how do I choose my children my husband? How do I choose it? Just utterly heartbreaking for her but at the same time she understood the the need It's very difficult compounds. The the loneliness and the the feeling of chaos all around him but it doesn't need to be within them. What do you say to them that it doesn't need to be within them? I think is really interesting because people would internalize that people would bring that in. Obviously because it's happening around them. What do you say to people? Well it's it's really coming from anxiety right and things I. It is what we feel when the foundation of life and safety has is crumbling. The patient has been dealing with that since diagnosis. They're really experts in it. And the best way to treat anxiety when you can't change. The outward circumstances is to change the quality of your presence with yourself so we use mindfulness. We use Body consciousness we We use authentic expression of feelings and really just trying not trying to be good or strong trying to be real and in that. They're not suppressing any part of themself. When we're completely real and authentic we encounter some strength. That's still point even if it's only for a minute or two and I do. I can't help. The patients encounter that that part of themselves. What's the difference between good being good and strong and being real being good and strong as often a mask that patients will use to protect their families from the probable or possible death? That is going to come the suffering. It's an instinct of love but to be authentic and real is to be totally congruent not About anything other than what you are. So if you're feeling messed up and scared. It's safe to do that with you. Know I try and make it a safe place to to feel that and then it moves through them. It's process that it doesn't stay stuck. There are cases where it does become the the center of Her experience and I know that. So many in the world are now experiencing it depends but we can always breathe in deep and identify. What can I do right now? I can love those. I can maintain social distancing. I can thanking expressed gratitude to the nurse. I can be kind to my body and my thoughts and my memories. I can be curious even about my dying. There have been some pieces written recently. About how we all have lost control and that that is something in some ways that those who are experiencing cancer could teach us a bit about DC that connection very much I had a patient say now. The world knows what it's like to lose control. I have the foundation crumble. What's how happening out. There is a mirror of what has been happening within meal. All this year When WE LOSE? Control spiritually It's illusions that are often dropping away we did. We actually have control over that. What do we have control over? What is here and now I have control over my thoughts. Pantai actually have more control over my feelings. I don't need to believe everything I think. I don't need to be controlled by everything I feel. That's quite a surprise. Something that cancer patients work with every day and now the world has homework. You are on the program last year talking about how people are often resistant to speaking with a chaplain like yourself. Because they may not consider themselves. Religious is what we're in right now changing that people have been more open to you now. Yes staff and patients because they're they're scared. It's so comforting to have someone to speak with who isn't going to fix the feeling but can dive deep into it and explore the nuances of it. And they'll help you realize this is a temporary thing I actually i. I'm not powerless against this. And it's very hopeful. I love what Rabbi Jonathan Sacks says. He says he's not optimistic. Optimistic says optimism is the belief things will get better. Hope the courage that we can make things better. One is passive the other active engaged right and it doesn't mean we need to be roic only that we need to be decent people. Stay at home. Wash your hands. Blessing encourage both from six feet. Away right see the world by sitting on your couch is your sense that people are doing that now. I mean how do you think outside of the setting that you're in the hospital setting? How do you think we as Canadians are are coping with what we're going through? Well I know here in Alabama. I walked through my daily life. Eyewitness beautiful compassion. Gratitude decency. I see that while everyone is scared People are encouraging each other. And you know it could be laying candle in the window banging your pot in the evening. The healthcare workers you played who retired in the last hour. I really appreciate it. Done those lovely so this is a crisis. Cancer Patients Teachers. This crisis is an opportunity to connect to the best part of yourself and focus on what is lovely and kind. That has astonishing power. I know it sounds served but it simple kindness and decency is being evoked by the crisis. Let's not waste the crisis. I hope they stop sticks. How do you think that's an interesting thing? How do you think we'll look back on this? We don't even know when we're going to get out of it. But at some point in time we will and there will be an opportunity to reflect. How do you think we'll look back on what we went through while? I am hopeful because Do you do have power I recognized that humanity is stubborn and selfish species I hope that the The shift from consumerism to community sticks a little longer I I trust that it will We look at how neighborhoods are. People are connecting. You know virtually or acknowledging each other through the window. We see it every time. A crisis comes along Hurricane Hurricane Juan during came through here and it actually brought out the good people we need to breathe. We need to remember this connection to. We need to realize how simple a good life can be. I think a lot of people will take that to heart. It's a pleasure to talk to stay safe. Thank you you too David McGinley as a hospital chaplain he's in Halifax. This is the current on. Cbc Radio One. My Name's Matt Galloway. You may have heard the Kentucky. Derby is among the things that have been postponed this year right now. The only thing you can bet on is a lot of uncertainty. Generalized anxiety is quick out of the gate followed by fear of the unknown and prone to panic in third and here comes. Does this mean anything. Does this mean anything on the outside track? And what's this charging from the back of the pack? Maybe this will just blow or coming on strong. Oh maybe this will just blow over has buckets rider and his running the other way. Thank you to the late show for that. It's your fictional horse race a fears if your inner monologue sounds a bit like that while you are not alone managing anxiety as we were just talking about very difficult. Steve Jordan's is here to help. He's a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough and is offering a free course on line. It's called mind control managing your mental health drink covert Nineteen Steve. Good Morning. Great to be with you. Math and great interview there with. David I can see lots of connections between his world and my leads one into the other. We talk a lot about anxiety. How would you define it x and so I think it's really important that people understand the basis of it because it's such a really simple thing Our body has evolved kind of two modes of being in one mode is engaged when we're relaxed. And it's all about long term survival of our body digesting food getting rid of waste that kind of thing but we have this special mode that kicks in when a threat emerges and back in the day. The threats came in forms of things like Predator so so a Predator would emerge and our body goes into this mode where it's energizing us for Action. it's reducing all of our digestive processes increasing our heart rate increasing our breathing And it's pumping all this oxygen to our muscles and it kind of it just wants us to fight the threat or flee from the threat so it has a sort of imperative do something and so all of us now feel that sort of energize state you know. We feel like we should be doing something that we'd like to be running away but we don't know how to run away and we'd like to fight but we're not sure the best way to fight And so we're now in that state long-term and and that is not what our bodies were evolved To be it's supposed to be something that comes up to help you solve a problem and then goes away and you distinguish between people you know having real concern about what's going on from clinical anxiety. Well you know you can but I often get this question of is especially hard on people who are already suffering from anxiety and I don't know what the answer to is we've never encountered anything like this but it's possible that you know I've anecdotally have some friends and one of them said. I now have company so she actually feels comforted that more. People understand how she feels on a regular basis and and she mentioned to me that she also has coping strategies because because she's been living with this for a while so it's almost like you know in. David said these cancer patients are are kind of professionals in this world. Now everybody's kind of coming to them there could be an aspect of that For people who have already had issues with things I do. They maybe understand it better than the rest of us do. And we're just we're all figuring you have what fourteen thousand people that have enrolled in this course so far. Yeah when I when this all started I was getting a lot of questions from media. And and you know it's it's nice to answer questions with the media but often you have to be. Kinda quick And so I really saw a good opportunity to to give a more deep understanding to people about where the anxiety comes from and the relatively simple things they can do to control it That most of us just sorta don't take the time to do because we don't feel we need to we'll now I think we feel we need to And and I think that's correct we do need to and if we learn these these strategies that they can be things that we carry with us after. This is all over so you know. I'm really hoping even things like families are going through this course together and talking about it together so what are the strategies not completely co op the chorus but what are some of the strategies that people might be able to employ in these anxious times. Yeah so one is I mean again. Is David suggestive? We we can control our minds We tend to let her mind in our body. Go into these spirals and and anxiety can really do that to us. Where some worried thoughts activate that that system and that tells us we're scared and that promotes more word thoughts but the interesting thing is you can step into that in the number of ways and so one of the things. I won't talk about in detail here. Because there's a little complexity is you can learn something called guided relaxation and you can actually push your body into a relaxed state and you can't be both relaxed anxious so if you can promote relaxation you can sort of banish anxiety but even the the simpler one. I think Which is good for people to think about. Now is a lot of what ends up in. Our mind comes there through the exterior world and we can use the exterior world And manage the exterior world and when we do we manage our mind so just as a taste of that you know. One of the things we're doing here is is news and sharing information and such It's very easy to become addicted to news at this time. Because information is a reward for us and it comes randomly in the news and so we want to be there when it comes and we can have this habit of having our news on all day long but every moment that we're looking at the news listening to the news our brain is getting the signal that we're under threat of this thing and so we're feeding our anxiety at every moment so something just as simple as saying. I'm going to decide when I watched the news. I heard you use the word control a few times. Important word you know. I will control when I get access to this information if I have news apps with notifications I'm gonNA turn those off. I don't want to be surprised into some new thing I will choose time and I may even after I watch the news digest it I may even Choose to do something else afterwards to Kinda change the channel on my mind so if you know what could be a TV show maybe there's some TV show that just grabs. You wouldn't take you somewhere else. or maybe it's some activity. You engage in whatever it is after you watch the news if you can do that for half an hour before going for a walk then you know while you're on the walk you won't be ruminating about what you just what you just heard on the news so you know literally saying. I'll watch it when I watch it and then when I'm done getting the information I will do something that'll take my mind somewhere else as this and those are really helpful. By the way as this drags on do you have concerns about the effects of this anxiety over the long term? Yeah and that was a major motivator for for doing it There there's a couple of reasons to have concerns and the first one is is from the work of Hans Selye long ago in Montreal where he was the first that really shows this interaction of our mind and body and how it can lead to negative things so specifically if we have chronic stress which is what we have now if we allow this fight or flee system to remain engaged to long eventually our immune system becomes compromised And obviously that's the last thing we want with a with a virus floating around So if you can learn to kind of turn it off now and then in escape from it Then we reduce the likelihood of that happening. There's also the the the worry that if people are anxious too much and and feeling like nothing they're doing is making a difference. They can slip into what we learned helplessness. Which can bring you to depression. And Depression is a is a much Scarier place then anxiety. Any kind of feel scary. It's because it's energizing anxiety. Is Your Body saying? Do something do something. Depression is your body's saying don't bother doing anything it won't matter anyway And in fact that is much more dangerous condition to have that then anxiety just in the last minute or so that we have. How are you managing this? I mean teaching the courses one thing but it's a you know one of the things when in the whole section of course Roy `isolation I say you know try to accomplish something during your isolation that you'll feel better and so. I think you know for me this. This course has a discussion forum behind it. We're all the students are talking to to one another and the social interactions are really important And so between you know getting the course up there but now managing it and and talking to students. I think that helps me a great deal just to to manage my own depression that I have garage band in the basement guitars and just go downstairs and make a lotta noise. Yeah and that's what pulls my mind away and so if we have something like that embrace that thing that takes you away from all this and live there now. And then Steve Well and stay healthy and safe and thank you for this you to Matt. Thank you see. Jordan's is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Talking of a free course. He's teaching online. It's called Mind Control Managing Your Mental Health Drink. Covert nineteen has mentioned. It's free and you can find it on the learning platform. Cordera owner This is the current on. Cbc Radio One. Matt Galloway joined now by Tom. Power host of Q in His home studio. Hello Tom home. Studio is a really lovely way of saying my living room where I keep my Banjo. It doesn't look like Drake's house that was posted up on social media with marble everywhere and no. It's not like I watched. I mean it's kind of like that I watched I watched the video of Drake's house The his new song and the video where he gives a tour of his house which is just a gigantic palace I think bigger than the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and I saw one comment that I really loved which has said that. I've been self isolating drake's house for four weeks that he hasn't found yet. What are you here aside from architecture to talk about well? It's a matter of time. I'm here to talk about art. Not being made necessarily to distract you. Drink opened nineteen but are being actually made about. Kovic nineteen. Check this out the Canadian filmmaker most Barry completed the first and only feature length film about the pandemic. It's called Corona. It was shot in an elevator in one take it was begun before the pandemic was declared. It was supposed to debut can where he had brought his previous films. But he's he's I think he's going to release this thing while we're all stuck at home. I got to speak to most often about the film. How he was inspired. And we might have the first film about this pandemic take. Listen how are you well? Tom Thank you so much It's an honor to be on your show and I think You know our film. It's something that's going to speak to a lot of people doing these even though it was made before the pandemic was made before the pandemic. When did you come up with the idea for this film Yes so they filmed. Actually I came in January so very early stage when he was just on the virus or Chinese virus and You know The finished film also in mid-february so long before all this is Restriction came and before the pandemic but the film wasn't there to question the origin of the virus but questioned origin of hate. And discrimination ever going on and around the world against a lot of patients and especially China's people come to me I wanted to make sure that You know it was a small big message rather than being a small message and we wanted to at the time. Make something against you know phobia virus as a metaphor for the fear of each other Europe. That people tell me more about that. How does the film look at xenophobia and racism at a time like this I mean? Obviously there's been so much Anti asian-american agent Canadian Anti-chinese racism around this time you know. How does the film talk about that? Yeah I think You know when it comes to The virus the water doesn't discriminate. Why should we discriminate? And I think The film is Basically Chipping. The elevator Filmmakers a lot to think outside of the box clearly made it home in the box in the elevator and the repression the society we live in so we all sharing these right together and they're different floors to present defend you know cast of society and people from different groups and backgrounds getting today. Let me talk. But there's a rumor of corner wires into building and then a Chinese woman gets into bill into daily. Everybody freaks out and you know. Try to mistreat her and let her in and get to stuck so all of a sudden from the start you know the spreading faster virus and you know they. We don't share with you. Know people assume that she does have the virus based on what they see and from there. It gets really interesting and people who call. They're come out and I think he knows films. More of a Socialist City always behave under very difficult circumstances as a Canadian. All this going to our history if humanity was a test you always get eight plus and I think my stuff is a Canadian filmmaker on to make this phone know about the the discrimination and phobia making Zombie. That makes fears Happier to people that we don't need right now so I think the message off this phone something after People who bring people closer together at the same time you know. Help us understand each other during this hard time. It's already difficult enough to be in this kind of circumstances and you know I think it's time for more kindness. Who's in the elevator They're different people in the elevator. So you have a pregnant lady who's about Labor and then you have a CEO who's You know owns the building and you know represent the upper class and you have someone who's the portending having paint his strength for you have someone who's you know By supremacist and someone. Who's sitting on the chair and Basically out of fear you have millennial who's GonNa spreading rumors and you know a fake news and things like that and you basically those characters Under Nisa China's state the CACTUS. I wrote his own was a prediction of what we have become a pandemic at the time. And you know unfortunately too much they'd almost came to the what. What would you have done differently? Had Known Dan what you know now about the virus how it would affect all of us I think I would still make it about phobia because I think long after our battle with these viruses over and running after a colonel old our battle with the racism will continue team in race And I wouldn't make anything about any horror film. Zombie for my Hollywood to make those big budget. So I'm so the filmmakers wanted to very message on I think this message would be relevant After you know all this viruses got hopefully become stronger because now the worst doesn't belong to a certain race you belong to the whole human race. The tagline of the film is fear is a virus. Hope is the cure definitely. I think you know during this time. It's very important to know that The end of the day You know We don't choose the Colorado I choose the colorful characters and hope. He behaved on their circumstances. And so I think as a human race you have to kind of work together like the music notes to have hard money in our society and I think that What I'm trying to stay with the song. Most I absolutely cannot wait to see the film and I think it's. It's well needed at a time like this must offer. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you so much. Hope everybody stay safe at home and thank you so much for having me on the show. Tom Power host of q speaking with the filmmaker. Mustafa Kashmiri about his new film about the pandemic. It's called Corona McKnight booming. Cbc News is next and then coming up in about six minutes time. Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping at all? If you're sleeping. Do you remember your dreams. Are Your Dreams of boats? This pandemic we'll speak about how the pandemic could be triggering more vivid dreams. I Matt Galloway. This is an extended edition of the current radio. One stay with US only good morning. I'm Matt Galloway. You're listening to the current still to come exploiting this pandemic why the far right sees opportunity in all of this uncertainty. That's on its way but I know. Rest the quarantined. I've always been the kind of person who has vivid dreams but lately it has been over the top every night. It seems like I'm having the most bizarre technicolour dreams right up into the point. I wake up in the morning and the nature of what I've been dreaming about seems to have changed as well usually. I'll have dreams like I have magic powers and I'm using them to fight off an army of bad guys who are chasing me through abandoned buildings or something but the other night I dreamed I was hanging out in a parking lot with a bunch of old high school friends and decided to go into a nearby convenience store to buy myself candy and when I went inside the store there was a box of jumbo red liquid twizzlers just lying out in the open beside the cash register where people could cough or breathe all over them but I knew it was safe for me to buy one because the quarantine was over and was just so darned happy to be able to buy a piece of candy without worrying about becoming infected or getting sick. It was crazy clearly. My definition of magic powers has changed in the past few weeks that's Aaron whalen and Gibson's BC and it would seem. She is not alone in experiencing a change in her dream. Life just as our waking lives have been upended by this pandemic so to have our nights whether those dreams have happy endings like finally being able to eat twizzlers with abandoned or perhaps they darker themes like this one from one of our producers on the program had one the other night I dreamt I was at the stove cooking as usual these days and I look at the window and my two year old is somehow in the middle of the street. I run out. I grabbed him and as I turn around. I see now. The House is on fire. I pull out my phone to call nine one one and instead of an operator. I get a recording that do the pandemic emergency services are temporarily unavailable dreaming in the time of Cove nineteen. This is something that the writer Alice Rob has been looking into. She's the author of the book. Why we dream Alice Good Morning. Good morning for those two clips of recent dreams that people are having. Is that what you're hearing right now? That people are finding that this nightmare in some ways that we're living through our waking life is intruding into our dream life. Yeah absolutely. I'm hearing That there's a big increase in the amount of dreams that people are recalling so even people who usually don't remember many dream to suddenly found over the past few weeks with their remembering dreams very frequently And part of the reason for that can be that we are A lot of us are sleeping differently. We may be sleeping longer hours if we're suddenly working from home or unemployed And we also maybe Sleeping shorter hours. Maybe waking up more frequently in the night if we're very anxious And Waking up frequently in the night can also lead to higher dream recall and then I am also hearing a difference in the type of dreams of people recalling There's a lot more stress and anxiety dreams. Which of course reflects are. Are you waking reality? You wrote a piece for New York magazine but this got a lot of attention and you were speaking with a researcher from Harvard. Who's collecting people's dreams are at this pandemic? How would you describe the types of you sort of hinted this at this? But how would you describe the types of dreams that people are having? Are they stranger or are they? Are they more anxious dreams? What are they like in the broad spectrum Barrett has been collecting dreams And she has over seven hundred now and she found that there's a lot more anxiety in the set of dreams in a typical set And there are a lot of dreams Kind of like the ones that. We heard a sickening. It's the program. Just dramatizing Worst-case scenarios about our family members dying or people are dreaming about falling. Ill themselves Dreaming about social distancing and other people's violating that or violating themselves And she's also found. She's collected some dreams from healthcare workers. Who are really on the front lines at this site and those dreams are more. Even more nightmarish That those look more like trauma nightmares And those will be dreams about you know not being able to save people Or you know somehow passing Cova to their own family members and that those dreams involve like guilt As well as you mentioned the recall piece of this is that in large part because our routines have changed that because to your point. Maybe WE'RE SLEEPING LONGER. Not Sleeping as much at all sleeping in different types of the day napping would have that is the thing that would trigger a greater recall. Yeah I think that's a big part of it And any big change in routine can lead to greater dream call So I think it's a combination of lifestyle factors And as well just that we have so much more process during the day So going through periods of stress or even going through periods where we're learning a lot can leave the hired a dreamer call. So we're all having to learn these new rules of social distancing and how to share space and how to interact with people So a lot of the dreams actually reflect those Those changes dreams about because we're learning dawn coughing on someone else because we're learning new things that trigger something while we're sleeping it can so dreaming plays a role in learning Dreams can help us. Learn if you've ever noticed that you're You're learning a new language. Might have dreams about that language in that language and they're gonNA actually be an increase in rent sleep when we're going which is a rapid eye movement. Sleep which is when we have most streams Did have an increase in remm sleep when we are learning a new skill. A wonder the we are just kind of moving through this phase of the pandemic people have been you know sheltering at home locked inside Or trying to stay inside as much as possible for a couple of weeks. Now whether this marks a change in that weather perhaps initially. We weren't having those dreams. But now those dreams are becoming more common. Is that the case. I think it varies from person to person I think you know as we adjust to this situation. You know maybe our dreams will normalized a bit. But I think it's a little early to say we asked on facebook our listeners whether they're dreaming more about The situation that they find themselves in what what are the dream lives like right now. I WANNA play a couple of clips from what they told us. This is from Victoria Wolff who's in London Ontario. My most memorable dream. So far is the one that I had most. Recently I dreamt that my husband dragged our family to an outdoor concert and I was furious with him. Because it was a clear violation of social distancing at the concert we sat on the grass and hung out with singer Marilyn Manson all. I could think to tell him was that he was very articulate in the documentary bowling for Columbine by Michael Moore. I can speculate now that perhaps Manson represented some sort of angel of death figure. There's a lot to unpack. Their one is the piece. About social distancing. The other is Hanging out with Marilyn Manson of all people the Angel of death What do you make of that well? After the social distancing part of the dream I mean that sounds like the kind of dream that you might have it. Almost serve the function of. Like reminding you How Important. Social distancing is And one theory of why we dream. Is that dream help us prepare for real life And that dreams and that that's part of the reason that dreams even non Cova Dreams. Even under regular circumstances are often do have a pretty negative tenor. They often are filled with anxiety And the ideas that if we can confront these anxiety filled situations in our dreams. Then we'll be more prepared to face similar things in real life and we'll we'll feel more confident in real life knowing that you know at least we don't have to face this sort of I don't know Marilyn Manson death figure or At least you're not an open air concert even if you bumped into someone at the Grocery Store WanNa play one. More dream recollection that we received from a listener. This is from Valco army in Vancouver during this pandemic. I'm experiencing a general increase in anxiety dreams most commonly. I'm severely behind in packing belongings and getting to an airport on time often missed the flight. Which strangely usually originates in Montreal? Then there's the dreams of being in high school a few credits short of graduating strange. Because I actually liked high school and I have to degrees the worst dreams involving very large bomb nearby being close to detonation again missing. A flight threat of a bomb side does that all of that sound familiar does it factor into Or or play into some of the things that you've been talking about. Yeah I missing a flight or dreaming about being high school or dreams that you might see Just sort of during any period of stress. Those are recurrent theme for a lot of people And then the idea of having like a bomb outside your house I have heard a lot of dreams about like metaphorical threats Sort of being inside and feeling safe. But there's something outside like a swarm of bugs or worms Just something a little bit diffuse That is that could attack. You has the potential to attack you. You were saying earlier about the purpose of dreams and you've written a book about this but why we dream in talking about how they prepare us for real life. If you think of the dreams that we have outside of a pandemic you know it's the dreams you have a project do. You didn't know that it was. Do you get to class and suddenly you have to stand up in front of the Class. And deliver that project or you show up at school and you've forgotten to put your clothes on and Everybody laughs at you. What is the purpose of of a dream like that? One thing that dreams can do as they can help us. They can sort of desensitize us to anxiety So even though we're going through this really anxious experience in our dreams And we're kind of we're allowing ourselves to play out like our fears in a way that we wouldn't necessarily winter film do in the day and then we wake up Remember that dream. There's often a feeling of lease that You know maybe you have to do with stressful presentation. But at least you can get dressed. The other part of this is that we talk about this being an unprecedented time. But at the same time there have been some points of great anxiety over the course of history and disruptive moments what a dream researcher saying about the dreams that people have had in past in particularly stressful periods of history. I mean I think it makes sense that we're having a big increase in in dreaming now We have seen you know during the two thousand sixteen election in the US. A lot of people were dreaming about Donald Trump I mean we definitely do. Our Dreams. Reflect our daytime lives and the concerns that we have in our daytime lives. So it makes a lot of sense that if we're all I think this is intruded on our personalized. Even more than many other gracie's so it makes sense that we are processing those anxieties in our dreams that were thinking about. Is there any? Is there anything that we can do with this? If we're dreaming more and the dreams are more vivid maybe not anymore but surely the dreams are more vivid and we remember them And they seem to square with the reality that we're living in or take a part of it and turn it into something different. What should we do with that? Should we write it down? Should we analyze it? Should we just try to figure out a way to forget about it so that we have some period of time when we can sleep and not be paying attention to it? I would recommend treating this as an opportunity a lot of other having extra dreams and if we I would say you know. Write them down. Don't just try to forget them because they will come back to you. You'll have flashbacks to them And they're an opportunity to help us tune into what we're What we're afraid about in this moment So I would say I mean I keep Dream Journal that I write in every morning Which also really helps with dream recall if you want to remember even more dreams I would say talk to them with your cranking partners or people online. A lot of people have been tweeting about their dreams and yeah just Using using an opportunity to help process this crisis you. You didn't always buy into the idea that there was a therapeutic value to analyzing dreams right. Yeah I was Before I started writing my book I was as I think. Many people in the West are Skeptical that dreams really meant that much I think there's this idea that's pretty. Pervasive at dreams they're just the residue or Dandruff of waking life and random and we should just kind of forget about them But through writing my book I learned so much about The therapeutic value of dreams. And how they can really help us. Profits are our fears and our hopes and Hope of meat more full waking lives so I had a dream about an elevator that I was in and people kept getting in the elevator and the elevator wasn't very big and I wanted people to get out because there wasn't enough room for me to physically distance in the elevator and I don't know what that was about. Are you having different dreams now defined that the The pandemic is creeping into The dreams that you're having. Yeah absolutely I caught a Lotta this social distancing dreams were. I'm at a party and someone isn't standing six feet away from me And I think it's interesting that we are are all going through this together in our waking lives than we seem to be processing it Similarly at night as well people will just want to have normal dreams and maybe a normal life as well. We'll see when that happens alice. Thank you thank you. Rob is a science journalist and the author of the BOOK WHY WE DREAM. This is the current on. Cbc Radio One. My Name's Matt Galloway the CBS's Andrea. Bill Maher is part of team. Fact checking this pandemic for you separating stories that are true from stories that are completely bogus and this week. She is looking at groups exploiting the pandemic Andrea. Good morning learn. That told me about this. It's tricky because every time you sort of knocked down one of these Fake news stories. There's another one that POPs up. What is that like to try and keep a handle on this? Yeah so I guess what? I think. It's kind of like. Do you remember that scene that very famous scene from Lucy were Lucian Ethel or trying to wrap all the chocolates on the conveyor belt coming by more quickly yet I shouldn't make a joke. But it's Ki- I kind of feel like that sometimes when you're just trying to get to everything things going by and you're oh. I want to debunk to you'll see information that you know is actually very harmful and there's just a lot of it so it's always trying to do as much as we can. There's quite a bit out there. Which is why. According to the calendar it was the International Frac Checking Day on the second of April. That's right yes. And that is something that is helmed by Pointers international fact checking institute pointers Journalism Instruction Institute in Florida and You know they actually have a spreadsheet on their website and this is where all fact checkers around the world have been submitting fat checks related to Cova Nineteen and on that day. They actually noted that they had over. Three thousand a submissions. Such quite. Quite a lot you've been looking into. People may have heard about this over the course of the news today far right groups who are trying to take advantage of the pandemic. Why is this time now? Such an opportunity for those groups one of the things. That's really interesting as I was speaking to people who whose job it is to monitor the far right and they said something that really struck me and they said you know. There's nothing that the far right likes more than a crisis. Those were actually the words of Barbara Perry. She works at Ontario Tech University in Oshawa. She heads up there center on on extremism fear. And you know one of the things that came out was that you know people are afraid. They might be looking for simple and satisfying answers about what's happening up when things get more stressful and confusing if you're trying to you know so discord or you're trying to take advantage of that for your own means It you might be able to get away with it or you might feel that you might be able to get away with it and you know. Here's something that Barbara said to me that I felt was really really interesting. And I'll just Elect her say here are what we are seeing. Though is that these sorts of narratives of our. They're no longer restricted to the far right if they were in fact and so those sentiments those narratives that are flowing so so easily online venues in particular and this is the other piece right. I mean. There's there's a bigger audience for folks or the far right now. So many of us are online. That's where we're living our lives right now. So we're so vulnerable. I think to this sort of messaging. And you know the things that you really probably are seeing. A lot of. Those might be Hateful in xenophobic posts. There MAY BE POSTS. That are Blaming Asian Canadians or Jewish people for the pandemic end than there are quite a few conspiracy theories in united chatted about some of these conspiracy theories before. So those are things that you might come across as your spending your day on the Internet. Are there examples? Th that would be routed here in Canada of those conspiracy theories that are swirling around online now. Absolutely Jacob Davis and he's with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue in London he specifically mentioned to me a conspiracy theory that the krona virus had been created in the national microbiology lab in Winnipeg or have been worked on that lap in that lab and stolen by Chinese researchers and taken to China and so that conspiracy theory actually is a distortion of story that. Cbc News Broken July. And that's when we revealed that a researcher husband and some of their graduate students were escorted out of that lab The RCMP had opened investigation and they described it as possible policy breach in an administrative matter and both the RCMP and health. Canada told us they stressed. This there was never any danger for public safety in our reporting never said that those scientists Were spies and of course you know that is something that has just sort of spiraled and of course You know the other aspect of that is and we've talked about this. As well as the krona virus the one currently causing this pandemic was created a lab. We know this because scientists have been able to sequence the genome. And they've been able to look at it. Tell us that it has not been but remains. Probably one of the most popular conspiracy theories out there. The Prime Minister Himself Justin Trudeau has been the subject of Some conspiracy theories as well when it comes to covert nineteen yes A common conspiracy theory might be that. He is not doing enough to prevent the spread in his doing that on purpose. Or it might be because he You know wants to use this Jesus as an opportunity to consolidate More of his power Or that he might try to bring in Marshall Law. These are all conspiracies Around him then of course. There's a lot of posting. That might be very critical of him. Or you know that might be very aggressive towards him and I mean obviously as leader. He has a focal point. And then of course Trudeau has done things. Such as when he went to the airport to welcome Refugees FROM SYRIA. So there may be people that really objected to. What are you? Ask yourself when you're trying to figure it out if the things that you're reading online or true or false one of the things that I think about Especially WITH CONSPIRACY. Theories is who does the conspiracy. Theory benefits are leaps of logic there without evidence. Something really farfetched on also sometimes. Is it someone trying to tell you? Something sometimes People who are conspiracy theorist large platform may also be pushing products of dubious value But there may be that Anglos well or they may be trying to scam money. I mean the other thing of course is is. It's always does seem too good to be true or does this hit me in a really emotional place isn't really stoking. Fear or panic or sadness and so if there's an emotional trigger that's something to really ask yourself about. And lastly does it just seem like you know really unbelievable in the last minute or so that we have. Let's talk about what Health Canada's doing to crack down on these companies that are selling those fake remedies. Yeah that's right in the past week so health. Canada has gotten dozens of complaints Canadians. That are reporting advertisements for products that claim they can prevent or treat or cure the current. Oh virus and they actually provided us with a list of twenty seven cases Where information was withdrawn. And they actually detailed some of those advertisements so for example You know there was some sellers on Amazon Canada that were touting that they had a special anti-dust anti fog anti corona virus hat that could isolate infected saliva hat. Yeah I've also seen a claim about a necklace as well a necklace head cannot prevent you from getting krona virus. There's also a mix of mushrooms that is meant to boost your immunity in prevent Kobe. Nineteen so that was something else that Health Canada Flag. That was not correct. There was a natural path office in Toronto that claimed it had a specific Oregano oil. That had the ability to halt virus replication in host cells infected with the Human Corona virus. Data's not correct either all things that have caught the eye of Health Canada Andrea. Thank you thanks Andrea. Bill Maher is a reporter with CBS's Cova de Nineteen fact checking unit time to say goodbye to our listeners. Newfoundland and Labrador for everyone else.

Oldsmobile this time in the name of the cars. He names all of his cars after ladies is maybe lean bring it up to full song. And the West End of the speedway in front of my joy, just to see how the track surface is operating. He looks to be jacket about three-quarters throttle. He's no here near top speed testing out the surface. There still is a bit amiss coming up from the back of the car. We can see at the exit of turn number two looks pretty good. But up the backing are still a few dark patches Donovan straightaway. Here's Darryl bring a number eighty eight by working up to speed. Again, let's see how it goes into three.

But nothing much to write home about the troubles seems to be up in corners here. The wall jet he were the son has shined.

We'll tell me the truth is Darrell Waltrip what you would consider a a gentle person when he gets excited during a race kidding to put an extra layer of sheet. Metal around me. He has absolutely no depth perception when it comes to me, he doesn't worry at all about scraping off my hide on those concrete walls. That's why need a facelift after every race. That certainly isn't my age. There is one thing that's been bothering me for a long time. Don't you ever get jealous when you arrive in victory lane? And you know, Daryl's the one that gets all the kisses in the hugs and everything. I don't mind that at all. You know, why why buddy Parrott the chief mechanic? He's the only one who really knows.

Ladder took the car to the bottom of the racetrack. Appears to be nothing speedway. The green remains on the Beale. It's Donnie Allison showing the way as buddy Baker continues to lose ground to the leaders. He is way back in traffic. We'll get a position on the field on a moment. The battle upfront still just as hot there. Back in one Waltrip going into turn number one hundred eight Parsons and appropriate in fourth spot. Donnie, and Bobby Allison kale Jabre hooked up lightly. The rest of the burst wealth karst thrown out behind them. Jeev adver limps mine hours Louis almost had problems here in the trial Valeria is going around. JD mcduffie was buddy Baker. Both cars got literally sideways coming out of the tribal. They've gathered it back in. But it looks Barney hall like there is definitely a problem on the buddy Baker machine, we might get Joe alloy to check on that as Baker is continuing to fall back. Here comes the charge for the lead. Eight cars in the draft. Alison still on front. Bobby Allison a second audience. Kayla's third fourth right now is Walter v as many Parsons, we pause now for station identification. Field eases out of turn number two. When I say ease the down the backstretch at about one hundred ninety five miles an hour with Donnie Allison showing the way as they move up into turn three six cars. Locked together initial draft and there's five four with Richard petty running eleven it's still Donnie Allison atop staved Marcus have been known to do we try to think of a lower line. But no luck there. Meanwhile, behind that first draft David Pearson trying to close it has gotten veal bonded, right on his tail as the field comes across the strive for the moment, they seem to run that way. Bobby Allison's got a sling shot down to the inside. He goes back after the lead intern number one in Bobby Allison takes the lead in the Daytona five hundred. Second caution to the afternoon has been displayed for the report. Let's go to Mike joy trouble with the leaders of intern. Number two Donnie Allison leading the race. Bobby Allison tried to tuck back up in the draft. The two cars appeared to touch Bobby hung on Madani's Hawaiian tropic car. Got completely sideways down the racetrack. Bobby Allison unable to avoid them. Also started spitting kale Jabre caught up in. It also spun his car the three machine spun out of control into the infield grass which is very soaking wet for the downpour late yesterday afternoon and last night all three cars of now come to rest on the backstretch and got stuck in the mud trying to get back on the racetrack. No damage appears to be too severe all the drivers are all right. And they are all trying to restart donny's car. Donnie Allison has moved right to the track apron, but as unable to get up on the asphalt the slick Goodyear racing tires not getting any hold in the infield. He's got an assist from the NASCAR. Cruise on the backstretch. Donny is now running kale Yarborough at Bobby Allison's car are being pushed at the moment. Trying to get them under way. So they get back to the pit area. There is smoke coming from underneath the hood of the junior Johnson prepared Bush Oldsmobile driven by kill Yarborough. Bobby Allison looked like he might get away. But he too is stuck in the mud and the records are going to his aid. So that will make four the leading contenders for the Daytona five hundred that have encountered problems in the early going with thirty two laps completed. Let's update you on the condition of the buddy Baker automobile that's had problems. Here's Joe alloy. We understand from the buddy Baker crew that he has waddled a cylinder has lost that cylinder. So that would be a serious problem and take him out of contention. We'll Barney it looks as if the bubble is burst on Charlotte. North Carolina driver buddy baker's efforts to win his first Daytona five hundred from Daytona International Speedway. This is the Marin broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. We were under cautioned for the second time this afternoon. The race starting under caution thirty three. Apps hundred lap event this afternoon. Let's go to the garage for a report for Mary arm and trout car number eighty nine that of Tim van devere is out of the race Jimmie standing right here. What happened to you just blew the engine, you know, new problems and all of a sudden this blue run a real good. We started in a room. We had already come to twentieth place, and I'll get some it's gotta be laced. But I'll shooting like to be. That's the way it is for Jim tower. The Bobby Alison car just motoring through turn number four showing right rear damage. Well here comes Alison onto pit road. That is the reason for the second caution flag, Bobby and Donnie getting together going out of turnover to Donny was in the pits. A moment ago the left door appears to be crunched in on that car is back on speedway. And here is Allison in the pits. And both Allison brothers. Now are on pit road. Where we've got some new candidates for the goodies headache award, which will be given out by the press members and attendance to this Daytona five hundred already for the top leading contenders for the laurels in nineteen Seventy-nine have encountered serious problems with their mounts. Well, a tough break for four of the best in the business in buddy Baker has to be just crush. Sched considering that all week long in new that if the car held together he had a good shot at winning his first Daytona five hundred and almost before three or four laps under green the the car encountered mechanical problems. He is still on the racetrack. But far back in the field. Let's go to Mike joy for an update on that accident all of the cars are away from the scene. There was some trouble getting kale Yarborough moving as there was smoke from underneath the hood. But all the cars are gone from the scene at Enfield area. All along the backstretch is very very wet. It's almost taken on a swampy character. And even the GMC safety trucks are having trouble. So anybody that gets off into that infield grass today body is going to have a very tough time getting going again did stops continue to be the order of the day. And here on pit road. Again is the Cordoba Twenty-eight the specter. Oldsmobile pole-sitter buddy Baker plenty baker's hood is up. They have been checking the car he came in for a very brief pitstop. Just a few minutes ago. They didn't do anything at that time. Now, they have the tools out. They are working on the right hand side of the motor making some adjustments. Who it appears that it is a serious problem mentioning? The mud the pit moon. Puddles of water that did help with both Donnie and body Allison's car because they came in sort of in the mud off the cars. They changed the tires and the cars both went back out. Both have identical damage to the drivers doors another car that just pulled out of pit road kale. Yarborough Bush Oldsmobile as the junior Johnson crew goes to work on that machine. And here comes Bobby Allison back into the pits in the Hodgson car and the bud. Moore crew will check him over to try and get him back onto the track. There does not appear to be too much damage on Bobby Allison's car. Let's go back to Joe alloy for a report on that. They are still working on buddy bikers car. The hood is still up. The car has not had any tires changed. Listening, but they do have the hood up. We just noticed something on buddy baker's car. He has when she'll is completely covered in mud. So evidently, he has gotten into some of the draft to some of the mud that is coming off the track. The car is found sounding very sour. And apparently, it is a lost cylinder in that car. Here's Bobby Allison pulling back out of the speedway and I'll year ago when he won this race in the qualifying races. He and buddy Baker crash together over internal three the cars were repaired. They come back to make the field for the Daytona five hundred Alison went on to win it it came down to a two car shootout between those two with Laker losing an engine with just four laps to go while leading kale. Yarborough car was in the pits. The junior Johnson crew change the tires on that machine. They have sent him back onto the speedway and for the most part just looking from the tower. Jackie there appears to be no damage to kale's car, will it was a costly stopped for kailua will put him to the back of the pack, but they took that precautionary measure of adding right side tires Barney. That's always a good move. And we always see junior. Johnson crew opting for that early in a race. Because he could have run through some of the debris left from that spin in front of Mike joy. So why not elect to do it? In fact, it looks if they're going to come in and change the left side rubber as well. As the Bush beer Oldsmobile is on pit road once again and Donnie Allison also comes back into the pits. There's the Hoss Ellington crew go back to work on the Hawaiian tropic machine. They are showing Neil Bonnett as the leader under this caution. The second caution flag day AJ point now moves into the number two spot. Richard petty is third wall trip is fourth and Dave Marcus is currently shown as the fifth place car as we are under the second caution flag day here, the Daytona five hundred we talk about Dave, Marcus. He's one of the few drivers that has brought a non Oldsmobile GMC type product to the Daytona five hundred he's opted for the brand new now legal Chevrolet caprice. And I asked him yesterday. I said Marcus why the boxy looking caprice here at Daytona. Everybody and his brother's got an Oldsmobile. And I think they're going to do something about him. Jackie.

Well, this is the break for both these cars as a matter of fact, it will be a great break for all three of the cars, although they were the ones to cause the caution flag. It does give them a chance to check the machines over as they went onto the muddy Enfield area. Just coming off the banking in the in the turn number two. So junior Johnson has had plenty of time to check kale's car over again. Both Allison brothers are on pit road.

Thirty-seven laps completed the two hundred lap Daytona five hundred year this afternoon still overcast skies, but we are under caution for the second time of the day. And Jackie I know the fans around the country wondering exactly how his car stand that spun in the back straightaway. We have an update on that. The spin was very costly for Donnie Allison in fact, has put him one lap down to your leader. Neil Bonnett such is the case with kale Jabre in Bobby Allison, but they have two laps in arrears now to the leader. So let's recap for you. The Wyan tropic Oldsmobile is being shown one lap down while kale Jabre and Bobby Allison are now being posted on the grid. As two laps down to Neil Bonnett who leads this Daytona five hundred thirty seven laps are completed in the Daytona five hundred two hundred laps make up the five hundred miles on this two point five mile facility as the field goes out of turnover to down the back shoot. Let's go to Mike joy, the cleanup crews and find out what the condition of track is in that area. The sweepers were on the track party, but they are done right now, the GMC safety trucks. Look like they may put a little stay dry down. On there, and they are calling the blower out. They've got a big aghast fired blower that they will use to finish cleaning the track the debris is confined strictly to the low group of the racetrack. This was not a bad accident. Although it did happen at probably one hundred eighty five hundred ninety miles an hour. All three cars were traveling just about the same speed. When impact was made. And then they separated and went their own separate ways through the grassy area off the backstretch. So it's a lot less damaging than certainly could have been if there'd been a greater speed differential between the three cars. Let's the condition of turnover too at this time. Again, we mentioned a moment ago. It is Neil Bonnett. The leader is now up into the second spot in Richard Petty's SDPI's will be showing third. We talked earlier in our broadcast that petty would make his presence felt here today if he has no problems on the car Jackie you talked to him about that. He's presently running in the third position. I said Richard you feel that you are top contender for this twenty-first annual Daytona five hundred. Down here. We wanted to race when we had to fight his cO on we've been down here. One racing who felt like we had to all move to at score in. So, you know, the racist not going to be over to not run the five hundred miles, and you know, even if we don't run that fast. We'll get everything get the brakes from stuff ball ride than we can win the race. Now, remember Barney is we have posted. Donnie, Allison one lap down kale Jabre and Bobby Allison two laps down. It's so early in this race that if we have some extended periods of caution those drivers very easily can make those laps up by not coming in under caution and going all the way around and should that happen. We'll explain it to our listeners, but there are some methods to quickly make up ground, especially if you go a lap down early in an event, it has been a lengthy cautioned are lethal stop for the buddy Baker car. The hood has been up on the car for at least three laps. Now, they get the car down off the Jackson takes it back onto the speedway down and turn one Iran. He gave us had looked at looked at only, but it can give us the look of disgust. Like, what am I going to do? Now, the crew has done all they can they got the duct tape out. They made all the changes they can. But he just threw his hands up put his goggles on went back on the track. He will fall in on the tail end of the field with Neil Bonnett riding in the league at this time where you're still under caution. Here Daytona thirty eight laps are on the board in the two hundred lap event. Boy is the second place car in fort. Ironically, had not moved to the front of the pack. He had been running back about tenth twelfth somewhere in that range when that caution flag came out. Now, he is up in the second position for those of the for those of us who have been around AJ Foyt for a number of years here at Daytona. And then also on the championship car circuit. He has been looser with the press in the media than ever before here in Daytona Beach, Florida and the car has not run all that. Well, he finished fairly easily in the twenty five mile qualifier in second position. But he has not been that bundle of nerves that we've seen so many times here at Daytona ended. Talladega. And all of a sudden he's being shown in second position. Well, something that surprised me. We're checking. Back through the record book on AJ voice performance here. Daytona he spend Daytona and made the field twenty six times over the years. He's won the Daytona five hundred once in seventy two he's been a winner in the firecracker ratio twice in once in sixty four and again in sixty five so AJ has an awful lot of miles on this track. He loves to campaign against the Winston Cup drivers. And it's going to be another extended. Stay on pit road for car number twenty eight to spectra formula, two fifty car for buddy Baker of Charlotte. North Carolina, buddy. Is there a lot of pressure on a driver trying to run the Daytona five hundred? You know, this is if if you went to Daytona five hundred. Truthfully. Speaking new about a good year if you win here, and 'cause it's the Super Bowl of what we do. And if you win here, then whatever you do the rest of the year is just additional prize for you. But. It's everything we would build new cars to race here. We don't build new cars to raise many other places and. I guess in money that you make in this one event now counting the prize money. Just two consignments in different things that you get as it's the big deal for us. And we'll come down here to get it. It won't be his day. Today is the hood has gone up once again on buddy baker's machine looks. As if Dame fortune is frowned again on buddy Baker, Charlotte, North Carolina Varney. Well, the field is now until the Pontiac safety car in the middle of turns three and four again. It is Neil bought it riding on the point in bonnet has moved up into the lead under this lengthy caution flag your day told us the second one this afternoon. Remember they started the race under a green and yellow condition. And that second caution flag coming out a moment ago on lap thirty one when Bobby and Donnie Allison spun in turn one into the driver's ready in the fans already as Donnie Allison takes late pitstop gets his Hawaiian tropic car back onto the banking down in the West End of the speedway the field into will pull up into turnover. Three. We will go racing. This time they bunch them tightly in the back shoot. Let's take a look at the deal with Gerry Gerald overturned three as they get ready to cut them loose again. Bulls by on the high side of the track against the move away from the field. Now, they begin to form to live for the cars that have been left. Pulling the inside of the superspeedway Neil Bonnett has come from a twentieth starting position he's come a long way. But he's got four petty Waltrip right behind him as we get set for the green. I'm certainly not as Neil Bonnett takes the point spot right now to members of the Alabama gang relinquishing the front positions. One other is right there to take over and certainly in later bottom. Neal Brennan's problems here this week during speed weeks. They turn it's good for the the the frontline now say motor through turn them before. They are set to go racing safety car dives on a pit road. And here they come to the stripe under green again as they moved out of line, bonded and fort quickly league up quite a fool away.

Six seven eight possibly nine cars involved back to the tower, a vicious crash internal before has sideline more than five cards that have come to rest on the apron of the track. Two cars are jammed into the wall and a cloud of smoke up in turn four caution is on the speedway. We have gotten a David Pearson automobile coming to the rest in the grassy area on the infield. His party automobile, totally pushed back into the driver compartment area. The number eighty seven of Gary blue, he cut across hit the wall rather fish asleep in the highest point of turn number four cut down across the racetrack took Galon with him. The automobile of eight J Foyt further down the stretch, we had cars careening into the Wall Street trying to avoid the onrushing perils and cars at this point strewn all over the race track. We see the. David Pearson, novel veal again with the fun of its car pretty well shoved into the rear and the AJ white car along with the number eighty seven automobile right now of Gary Palu, those the ones I've seen any most dangerously injured here as far as the cars are concerned also involved. Barney hall was car number seventeen and that would be skipped banning, but he is brought his ailing machine from Bogalusa Louisiana onto pit road. We are under caution at the Daytona International Speedway after care raising crash in over four more than half the field came through a smoke feel racetrack trying to pick their way through cars that had stopped on the apron of the track and against the wall from the Daytona International Speedway. This is the Marin broadcasting company. The Daytona International Speedway. Fifty five laps around to the Daytona five hundred. We have had at least a six possibly seven car pile up at been turned over four as the safety. Crews have moved to the area we have one car that is jammed against the wall. We're trying to get a car number and driver on that for you momentarily. We'll have it. Some of the cars again that were involved David Pearson. Crunches the wall badly and Carter Twenty-one the purolator car AJ point torn up in the front of that machine has come to rest down on the grass Barney hall. Both of those drivers are out of their machines and standing by for the assistance and the cruise the first hell automobile is center number forest grass areas. Well, and he is walking around seemingly. Okay, likewise. The automobile of Gary Palu, it's come to rest on the inside retaining wall, all the way careening through the grassy area. He is. Okay. As the crews. They're attending as well. Let's update you quickly on the Ford car again. We just said that the car appeared to be crunched it looked like he went right into thick of things. And now we see AJ has pulled his car onto pit road. There does not appear to be in a damage on the right side. Maybe a little. Sheet metal damage on the left side. They picked that car and pull him back onto the track. Quickly wall trips car is in the pits. The Gatorade machine and again a moment ago there were more than thirty cars riding in that lead draft. Something went wrong right back in the middle of the pack and cars go careening into each other again in front of Eli goal. Let's go back there for an update at what's happening in turn four while Barney, certainly what's happening right now as a massive cleanup job, let's recap. What's happened here shortwhile ago the cars were motoring through on that long draft through turn number four at seemed as though Gary blue just did not follow the contour of the track for whatever reason? Let's not speculate. An event the car rather viciously hitting the outside retaining wall came careening back through in front of traffic along came the Bruce hill automobile, he was there. So as the David Pearson car, those three most notably involved as they went careening down the straightaway towards the Tri oval area right now Balu coming to rest near the inside retaining wall. Bruce hill he's in the grassy area walking. Okay. And the mercury of the. Brothers. David Pearson's car that beautifully prepared automobile. Well, they've got a lot of preparing to do after this one David Pearson who crashed in that area. It is bid for victory here a year or so ago when he defeated Richard petty. They went slamming into that concrete wall at better than one hundred eighty miles an hour, and again today piercing gets caught up in the spinning cars coming out of turnover. Four and crunches the jury Leonard car once again for the most part the cars now are coming into the pits. Lennie pond spun in that also congre fifty four a moment ago, the pond card does not appear to be damaged as he pulls. It onto pit road. We saw the skip manning car also number seventeen spinning in there. He has been on the pit road. We believe that car has gone back into the competition. Gary blues car involved all she Jay points spinning but boy car does not appear to be damaged at all on right now. Joe Milliken car the one final car that we had yet to identify. It's on the hook and being towed in towards the garage area. The number seventy two car also on the hook the number seventy five of Butch mock Bush coming. Long way to join the race. And he right now as outta be brings out a flower to north Miami area, he's on the hook. And so is the Joe Milliken car SOS, everybody went careening down off turn number four. Again, the primary problem was the Gary Balu automobile after smacking the wall. There was no control really for Gary. He came back down the high Bank, cutting in front of the Bruce hill car also in front of David Pearson. Further down the stretch is they tried to avoid the problems. Joe Milliken coming together with Butch mock to come into the garage area, the number seventeen carves skip manning and also buddy Baker has just entered the garage area will have report for you on that shortly. Let's recap for you. The eight cars that were involved in this crash out of turn four car number seventeen. That would be the car from the Bogalusa Louisiana stable force skip manning car number fifty the Walter Ballard prepared machine, and that was being driven by Bruce L of union city, Georgia Butch mock in car number eighty seven in number seventy five.

Barney the third caution of the afternoon, and it was a very serious one. Almost looked like a repeat on the opposite end of the speedway from what happened yesterday. But when they're running that tightly as they were over thirty cars in the draft and something goes wrong in the middle of the pack of the front of the Packers. No way to avoid getting into somebody else's trouble. Misery becomes yours in the garage area. Right now, buddy Baker driver, of course, car number twenty eight years out of the race, buddy.

We work as we said the fourth caution of the afternoon from Daytona International Speedway. This the Marin broadcasting company. Back here at Daytona International Speedway. Working the seventy six lap in this Daytona five hundred one hundred ninety miles have been completed for those of you that have just joined us at the drop of the green flag. The green did not come out here in the Daytona five hundred until the sixteenth Sirkin. The race was run under green yellow conditions due to a wet condition on the race track. Until the sixteenth lap here on the drop of the green though, it was Donnie Allison leading. I it would be buddy Baker. Then by the second lap. It was the Bush beer sponsored car for junior. Johnson kale? Yarbrough people running in second. It continued to be Donnie Allison until kale Jabre took over the lead on the twenty-first left. It was then a seesaw battle between.

I'm Jack a route along with Barney hall topside at the start finish line in this two and a half mile facility, and when they tally up the dollars and cents. That's been lost to Rex crashes here in this twenty first Daytona five hundred it could total well up into a million dollars very very easily. I don't think we've seen this many cars run in a lead pack like that. And just a minor accident can become a major problem when the competition is that keen in their twenty and thirty cars riding in one draft and something goes wrong. We have had a thing that's been handed to us from scoring that will make a big difference in this race. If he stays out there. Donnie, Allison, who's really been writing as hard as it can to keep his lap and get it back in been writing in front of the pack. We have a report from scoring now that he is back in the same lab with the leaders. Remember, we have said time and time again that it is very easy. If you leave your car out on the race track and do not go to the pit road air. You can circle all the way around and pick up the lead at the end of the lead lap. And that's just precisely with Donnie Allison is done and a rookie. Driver from the north Geoff Bodine leads this Daytona five hundred on the seventy eight lap. And this has got to be a great thrill for this youngster from Bellingham, Massachusetts, dine picking up the race hill farms ride in nineteen seventy nine and he is indicated that he would go for rookie of the year in the seventy nine Winston Cup Grand National circuit. But a late development yesterday with the departure from the race hill team of Billy Taylor who was Bodine's chief mechanic has left. A lot of question marks as to whether Bohdan will hold onto the race hill farms rod or maybe jump over. And I asked Jeff yesterday. I said do you have enough with the car to go the distance or do you try and run the run to the front and be noticed in hopes that maybe you can get a little better ride for your Seventy-nine quest for championship. Knows the TV cameras and everybody watches broad cars. But I feel that I'm smart enough. I guess the realize that. You can't win a race solid time. Just by being a front. You gotta finish the race. I so if the cars people will run up in a front that's will be. But if it's not just sort of joy fats, they'll go and try to finish the race. And at the end, you know, we'll put our best foot forward. Try to go as fast as we can to get up front for not already. We'll his best foot forward is put him into first position with seventy eight laps completed while we're under this caution. Barney we've got a lot of great Winston Cup racing. Coming up for the nineteen seventy nine season. The from Daytona Beach, Florida, we moved to the Richmond four hundred Richmond Virginia than in Rockingham North Carolina after the twenty fifth of February where they'll be running in Richmond Virginia the Richmond four hundred.

So the drivers are all right. We are under the fourth caution flag today here at the Daytona International Speedway. Working the seventy nine th lap of the event we can bring you update as to how they're running show. Jeff Bohdan your leader. Benny Parsons running in second tie, Scott on the Russ togs Harry Hyde prepared Oldsmobile running in third AJ Foyt and the Gilmore broadcasting number. Fifty one runs fourth RA.

Finally, having his way this afternoon, the Burger King car number. Fifty four is being shown in seven grant Adcocks in the Ed. Cox Kirby Chevrolet runs eighth and ninth. Despite the crash in turn number four is Neil bunny in the gym Stacy mobile in the garage right now, Harry Ganta driver of car number twelve was involved in that spin out in turn number four. Harry what happened with Koren's in front of Bobby Allison rich pity? I was drafting wrought together with them in a car storage spin in front of them and he was backing up gross the racetrack. Look like, you know, going going to hit him, and they stopped real quick. And then whenever they stopped. I was only about a foot behind knock dip tobacco Bauby's car and started my car spin and two in the didn't try to control controller try to go the grass but graduates this liquor bucket bone racetrack. And the I two hundred miles of this race we've seen quite a bit of violent action. Have you ever seen anything like this before? No, it's. Israel roofer, but his seem like a fin or buying out there. You know, everybody's trying to catch a draught off everybody else. They so many cars here sequel in his new cars that are faster and everybody wants to catch draft. They'll get out of the box stretch draft, the strike arline, then all of a sudden breakout three abreast at the last minute in nobody. Everybody's trying to pull away, but nobody can get away from anybody. But I've seen a couple of cars putting it in the wall out here. Thank is spy, maybe or something, but they had little udub leave going there. But I've never seen it. This rough running. We had a a good shot wind race. We had a clutch problem early. And it wouldn't release me loss to lab. But or car was plenty of fights to win the race in we just trying to draft in the main liners or style troll. But I just this thing happened to quicken up return per head to. Had to shut it off. Suffice her by locked it down. I had to hit him in the back. What is your condition right now? You'll be able to go out and rice. Oh, yeah. But the car the car store up, you know, it ilet to have a lot of work done need. It took cope pretty good licks out there. The I guess we're lucky though, everything worked at our Harry Gant. A couple of pretty good licks is putting it mildly that inside retaining wall had to be running one hundred seventy miles an hour. The violent impact shot the car all the way across the speedway into the outside concrete wall. Harry, Gant walks away. He's all right Barney down in the garage area. Now, there's some action there. But here in the pit area we see that bringing in a windshield for Darrell Waltrip scar. Apparently during the crash something flew up went through the windshield of the car. It is crack so badly tape is not going to hold it. So they are making plans to put in another windshield that in addition to his engine which has gone sour the field is in the banking. Intern four we're getting ready to go back to green of a Daytona five hundred on the eighty first lap as they come down out of the corner of the Pontiac safety car dives on the pit road to give them racing room in a hurry. Because. Are they come full throttle out of the fourth turn by gate seven heading down the line? Green flag as we go. Back to racing. At daytona.

And one more driver out of the race bull died goes after the lead up and turn over three this young rookie driver. Jackie. We may see the first rookie ever to win. A Winston Cup event. The way they're running in the top five. A rookie has one Winston Cup events. Earl Ross did it in martinsville. Virginia several years back, but no one has ever been able to do it. Here. The GRANDE Dame of stock car racing facilities, Daytona Beach, Florida. And at the present time a whole host of rookies are challenging some of the aging veterans. Benny Parsons is out front. Ac- does the shoot scooted deterred y Parsis lease vote on by one Carling? Brooks a lap down closes up on his third in the draft with two lap cars behind him then to tie Scott in third spot point is fourth out of turn too far opens up a four car like the Bennett Lenny body, just went limping beieve at here comes the speed.

He was not involved in a crash something happened to his car rookie where the car was running. Pretty good. We've just just more or less sitting back in lead pack and car was running to great. I knew you know, we we're going to have to have trouble. I guess, but we're just sitting back waiting kitty and had a lot of guys out there driving their own dirt or something. Either thinking racist go be into shortly. I guess you know, the way they were driving. But I guess we're helping we do look forward to next week and weekend to that. They would know dead. There are ten cars out of the race kale. Yarborough tries to make up some ground on Benny Parsons to unlatch himself here today told International Speedway. It's Parsons the leader. Geoff Bodine's still in second position from the Daytona International Speedway. Listening are in broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. Benny Parsons now pulls ahead of the pack a little bit in the most breathing room. Anybody has had today Parsons has it as he's linked up in a two car train with kale Jabre Bush Oldsmobile say come back to the stripe. They have pulled away perhaps ten car links on the second place car. Jeff Koons Richard petty a moment ago was up in the third position. And now it looks like petty is falling back a bit. As Earnhardt gets around him in the head back to turn one Jackie route Barney hall, you've got to be impressed by this run by this youngster. Jeff who died some twenty seven years old hailing out of Bellingham, Massachusetts and carrying the Winston racing colors. In the honors track championship at the Stafford springs Motor Speedway for nineteen seventy eight he came Grand National racing. And I'll bet you right now. All of New England is thinking back to nineteen seven. When the Dedham Massachusetts flash Pete Hamilton driving for the Richard petty stable was right where at this point in the race, Geoff Bodine is he went on to win the nineteen seventy Daytona five hundred. So all New England is probably shaking in their boots right now cheering on Jeff who runs in second come out of turn number four, Dale Earnhardt, putting some pressure on the heads of the strikes across the start finish live Parsons and Yarborough continue to ride a two car draft in they pull away just a little bit more each time around and Mike joy, it looks like a broken the draft on that second pack of traffic. They have already about a second and a half back to the second group. Dale Earnhardt, just went low in turn one and pass Jeff owed on earn artist. Now third with four Donnie Allison v Richard petty and A J Foyt kale rural getting bulled along, but many Parsons as they come down the street headed door three Earnhardt moved into second place day bail Earnhardt down the backstretch tries to put some moves on those put some daylight between himself and Jeff foe dime chasing down right now. They learnt heart but again. A gap between himself in sucking on the lead on mobile buddy, personam five with kale Jabre. It looks like they're twenty nine cars still on the speedway starting forty-one. Despite all the giving we've had in turn four involving those cars at several of them out of competition. One car that has retired as the Burger King Oldsmobile for Lenny pod, it has gone behind the wall. The leader Parsons continues to stretch his lead. He is in front of my joy, and they continue to pull away battle for the third spot, though is Donnie Allison run Dale Earnhardt Allison is now out on the draft. And he drops back some two colleagues from the third spot. First time today, we've seen anybody open up anything close to about a seventy five yard at that age with what Benny Parsons enjoys as they move into three or four. Of course, that's second group right now. Today's off a flashback to the early going on the brothers Donnie Allison leading by a half a car length on the palm Donaldson as say try to make up ground. This is the longest lead we've seen in the first ninety four laps of competition at the Daytona five hundred and it is Benny Parsons out front in the grip. Marine supply Oldsmobile I asked Benny yesterday how much trust is there in the sport of stock car racing. I be a great deal and talk about been a gentleman about and what have you there has to be a lot of courtesy displayed on the racetrack. Or you know, one driver could wipe out the entire field. Coach Joe seduce. Oh, but we've seen a lot of activity. We have had already four separate caution flags for some very serious accidents, thus far nobody has been hurt badly. In fact, everybody is all right from those altercations and now Varney hall, it looks as if kale Jabre and Benny Parsons are beginning to shake the rest of the field as they come screaming out of turn number four to the stripe will that's what everybody had thought that buddy Baker and possibly Walter might do link up on the dropped the green flag and take off and set sail from the field. It did not materialize. At least it has right now, though, those two cars continue to why their way around the speedway with the battle is back for second position five six seven eight cars ride the draft for that number two spot as they move to Mike joy Donnie, Allison has the second spot for the moment. He has. One car cushion, Bobby Allison a lap down before A J Foyt in fort Dale Earnhardt, Richard petty, Scott hooked up in that second draft the big crush now is way back behind the two front runners actually Parsons, the lead with pale hooked along with Donna has come a long way car number one to get back into second. Embiid. Donnie, Allison doing the job they worked as right back after being lapped in arrears. He takes that second pack through turns three and four. Bobby Allison using higher reliant on Donnie Allison AJ, Poitou, Dale Earnhardt. They're fighting their time. That's all I can do as the lead. Car comes across the strike. Donnie, Allison sweeps by his three point seven seconds. Now in second position three point seven seconds separate first and second spot and they can't afford to race right now back in that second position because if you pull door to door, you'll slow down even more and allow Benny Parsons in kale Yarborough to get away even further in the garage area. Right now, we find that Lennie pond's car number fifty four had no brakes that means. The attrition rate is ever growing here with eleven cars out of the race. The top. Tenders that are out of the race. To update you on that David Pearson has parked his car crashed in turn four, buddy. Baker had mechanical problems has gone behind the wall.

Here comes the lead car across the stripe. Benny Parsons jumping please one hundred laps in the Daytona five hundred at the Reid. John nine is apparently over Barney. He's pulled out on the apron through three and four his coasting back toward the pit area. After leading this event at the halfway point is looks like he is through. We'll despite the back of mechanical problems, look like they will put put Bodine behind the wall. Jackie Rudy's, had one of the most impressive runs. We've ever seen a young driver. Come today told a and ROY. With caliber of competition that is here today pulls onto pit road. The Cottam forty seven died. It's another rookie who just left the race. Ronnie Thomas, the drive of car number twenty five running have you ever seen anything like this with so many cars coming out of the race oil? No, you know, spades are up a little too fast. You knows proud while having so many Rix, and you know, mechanical problems, you know, these cars are are really getting fast. And it's a it's real horrid on the cars.

And I haven't got on a track till rice started today in a hit in handled at all since wrecked. And on top of that, you know, he's trying to get by with the tat just run. His hardest could ruin it be safe. And then the engine giving trouble men, go burn a pistol and Ronnie time this is one more out of the race driver. That is out of the racist. Standing by with Joe alloy Lennie pond made his Mark on the wall and qualifying this week right at the start finish line. But no finish line today. Well, Joe, you know, we we've got doing real good way. Right going thinking, I had a chance duck and win this thing. But then we have some problem with front end and found Drake's one on the call. And the way to call running you have to run so close to you in all the traffic. I just think be safe for. Theo. Breaking doll with this much rights to go. So we go. Problem that you had occurred. Intern four new ended up finally right at the start finish line. What is the feeling? Well, you know, when when the did get crossed up and hit the wall there is that's the way I need to stay done. And everytime. I would let up on a gas would come off the wall. You know? I'd get it back to the wall. But you know, I figured to get away from it turned about off. I'd beast. I just try to keep it going. But try to stay on the wall. But it didn't keep him out today. He was here racing until he had dropped on one hundred three laps are completed that they told a five hundred Parsons is the leader. Donnie, Allison vied second and third position right now is the rookie driver. Earnhardt and nineteen cars continue to be shown on the lead lap with over two hundred and fifty miles of this Daytona five hundred completed from Daytona International Speedway. This is the R N broadcasting. Back here at Daytona International Speedway. The fifth caution to the afternoon is come out. Let's go to gold for the report while Jonah apps, but you remember earlier he was in the pets for a while. He chucked around the race track at half speed for a while finally got enough to racing power. But the engine expiring is he took it out of turn number four. So that will post Benny Parsons under this caution as your leader running in second Izzo come behind the Pontiac safety car the pace car resting on pit road. At the present time preparing to pick up Parsons Griffin marine supply number twenty-seven. Donnie, Allison shows in second. J Foyt is third fourth position is being posted. As Dale Earnhardt in fifth. Spot is Richard petty six position to tie. Scott Geoff Bodine has left the race. He was running in seventh at the time that'll move grant. Ed Cox into seven eighth position to COO COO Marlin ninth today Watson, Richard Childress is ten Darrell Waltrip being shown eleven twelve to Terry. Labonte Bill Dennis's thirteenth fourteenth d kale which JD mcduffie is running. Fifteenth Blackie Wang grit in sixty. Seventeenth to Frank warn eighteenth. Chuck Bown nineteenth today.

Position would be car number eighty two and that would be Paul fest twenty-first of buddy, Errington kale Yarbrough being took show twenty-second. And in twenty eighth position would be Richard Brooks. That's the way they're running on the race track. Barney hall there is a national pit crew championship competition. And this is the first installment of that. And they have post to take in the top ten qualifying teams. And they are seeing and they have posted some money up for that. Well, over several thousands of dollars going up for grabs to the crew the post the fastest overall time spent on it road, not the time as we tell you that his spent from when the wheels stop to the wheels turn, but from the time they crossed the line entering pit road to the time they exit and as we look down at the halfway Mark the current team that is leading in that pit crew competition if you can believe this is unofficially Richard petty with a total time spent on pit road. Of one hundred forty one point eight eight seconds running in second. In the pit crew competition is tie Scott in the Harry, Hyde team with the Russ togs Oldsmobile one hundred fifty five point six three seconds. The total time spent on pit road while running in third in the competition is with one hundred fifty five point seven one second spin on pit road is your current leader. Benny parsons. Flag was a break for kale Yarbrough in that two car breakaway draft. He was running just ahead of Benny Parsons. So when the pace car picked up Parsons to leader Yarborough got a free pass around and picked up one of the laps. He was down being shown three laps in arrears. So that will gain him one lap back burning home will you never count. Caylao. We've seen him as much as three and four laps down in the last couple of years in his bid for the national driving title. And he is come back to win races from three and four laps behind pit activities. The order of the day here at the Daytona International Speedway. One hundred seven laps around the board. And the Daytona five hundred two hundred laps will make up the event this afternoon just about all the front runners have been in and credit, Dale earnhardt's. Pit crew. This young rival from capless North Carolina. He was about the third car to get out on this pitstop. He is back on the track. Real quick pitstops have become so critical here Barney, despite the fact that we've had five separate and distinct caution flags there's been some hot and heavy racing activity as we said before we broke for commercial. It's burchell unheard of that over half the field would be continuing to be. Run on the same left. This this far into the race. The signal has been given to the field as they came across the stripe that time by that. They will get the green as they come back around the speedway one hundred and nine laps complete in the Daytona five hundred Barney your pick to win the goodies headache award. We've got a lot of candidates this year. It would be just impossible to pick a candidate to there are so many cars that have had trouble buddy Baker high hopes to win today. Just thought he had a you know could win the race. When no problem. He's been coming here for nineteen years. Had it all together. He thought boom just went away. Well, I'm gonna show a little parochialism coming from New England and knowing that buddy baker's already walked away with Bush clash of seventy nine and fifty thousand dollars there. My vote goes to Geoff Bodine because he showed some promise and he's got to have a pretty big, hey, headache. Now having known that the car was capable of running to the front, and it just didn't have the lasting power to be there at the end. I don't think anybody has ever seen as many rookies ride in the top six or seven cars as this has been a completely unique Daytona five hundred of any of the races that have been here since its inception. Back in nineteen Fifty-nine Pontiac safety car with a field. Toe. Just getting ready to come off the biking up in turnover four we're ready to go back to racing under green Donnie Allison is the leader.

Donnie, Allison leads Dale Earnhardt. Bobby Allison still lapsed out as his kale Yarborough our third and fourth in the draft as they head out of turn number two in his Donnie, Allison Hawaiian tropic car. One car like ahead of Dale Earnhardt fifth in the draft. And in third place, this brand slightly battered sheet metal on that Hawaiian tropic number one Oldsmobile, but it's in the lead, but not by much Earnhardt quickly tucked in running second. It's a drop back to add his fifth in the current strength. But racing third earn out. Of course, what all over the track yesterday in crossed of a sportsman title. We see what he does here right now he tucks himself behind. Donnie, allison.

They moved back to turn one the affect that trapped extensive twenty Carlex back at the last car, h J Foyt is now closing on the lead draft. It is still Donnie Allison Dale Earnhardt grant at talks now Foyt in the fourth position moves up on that Cox AJ has got about fifty yards to make up if he wants to hook onto the freight train seven cars up here in this initial group with Donnie Allison, Dale Earnhardt, showing the way kind, of course, grat Cox was running a close third on the restart had trouble getting up to racing speed. He's been drop kicked back a bet right now AJ Foyt he's site. Some of the rear tail of kale Yarbrough automobile thought front to train the line while all that shuffling is going on in the front seven 'cause Richard petty is knocked off about seven cars and leaves the second. Draft. As he tries to catch the front runners in the DP L's will battle going on back in the pack for that position. But the leaders move into turn to a number of cars in that front pack.

Entertaining to say the line that pay Marcus was taking through a seemed to go down low and folk back stairs while the top four or five cars. The study middle crew returned the maroon Hawaiian tropic Chevrolet with the number one emblazoned on the side panels goes across the stripe to complete the one hundred thirteenth circuit of two hundred scheduled. He leads this twenty-first annual Daytona five hundred turn one day alert heart seems to have a bit of a different strategy in this second half of the race in the first two hundred fifty miles. He was challenged for the lead battling. But he. He's been consent to stay behind. Donnie, Allison dip, he gets out of the draft. Now buy cars right behind him. Put overtaken within a lap Donna qualified at one hundred ninety four plus over the old record e had frustration early in the race when he was down on the back stretch. But right now, he leaves the mob with a high banks of turn three eight J Foyt at this point just a car length to the half behind the fourth runner right now kailua, bro on the Dave Micheals car. Staying type still down the number two of Dale Earnhardt, honestly, had aligned we'll let fifth and sixth place car now link up in a two car draft to try and overhaul. The brunt mutters Benny Parsons, Richard petty, petty, let Parsons slide by just a moment ago, and they are making up a little ground on. Donnie, Allison, the rookie driver from could apple North Carolina continues to show his colors. He has just taken the lead away from Donnie Allison. But Allison comes charging back on him and goes right back into the lead from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company. AJ point just moves around the rookie driver Dale Earnhardt to take over the number two spot is at eight car draft writing in the lean head down in turnover. One they scoot up into the banking in front of Mike, joy, Donnie, Allison leads the role of Bobby Allison or lap. Then it's AJ and the second spot. Benny Parsons has now moved to third I had a Earnhardt and petty all in one long draft. Fanny Marfan prior to make a challenge on the side. Now, he tucks back in stays in the freight train about ten cars moving through us past us into turn three at this point. They're taking the single file line. I'm going last time through they were all bunched up or they decide to go racing here in the one single files draft head again with the advantage. It's Donnie Allison heads to the line to show you how Becky the draft is here at Daytona mobile to go Richard petty and Benny Parsons for almost four seconds behind that front pack of graphic leave now joined it to make it a twelve car Choo Choo train as Richard Petty's SDPI's will hangs in there in the fifth position.

Dera long is coming along the way back he's right behind Richard petty now at number eighty eight of course, Donald wall chip card sounded as oh maple lane. Some indigestion earlier this afternoon, they were not running up the Spade. Meanwhile, back in the front of the practice, still Donnie Allison automobile takes out towards the outside wall and heading back towards the tri-oval willow mobile to goal kale. Yarborough made him one of the map that he lost him and costly spin out over internal too early in the race in now he sits in a good position on Donnie Allison the leader. Should we get a caution flag a moment ago he proved he could get around him. And for the moment kale is content to just ride. They're hoping for a break owning someone who is real bigger with the traffic situation. In fact, speed on the track today. Richard Brooks, Richard. This is not the wildest ride.

AJ comes down off the banking of the number four turn. He slowed it down a tux. Petric seem to have some trouble midway between the turn trouble on the point car.

We'll keep an eye on that machine is the Gilmore car comes to rest on pit road back straightaway of lucky wanker and thirty nine trailing smoke.

It was a long slide, and Richard petty had an extremely close tall is he hoped that owes down underneath may of come down on the grass it perhaps in the view of Eli old who was overturned for watching.

The gap remains constant back to second place, Richard petty at third place, Dale Earnhardt, petty Earnhardt bowling together. Now as they tried to run down the front running do Donnie, Allison kale Gobber all through the high banks. They're into turn four. You've also got to be impressed by the fourth place showing now of tie Scotus. He tried and left Terry Labonte in his AAC, but right now, Thais checks rear view mirror. There's. Old Maybelline Darrell Waltrip say to be back up to speed twelve car draft in the lead is they come across the start. But it's li-. Donnie, Allison, kale Yarbrough again, try to open up as much distance as they can Richard play the second place car, but Jackie rucci brought out a good point early in the race getting two and three laps down even on a speedway as big as Daytona does not mean that much if you can work the draft and ride on the leaders bumper something happens in a caution comes out, you can scoot around. And make those laps up. He's made up to the four. He was down. We've seen this happen time and time again, especially as it applies to kale Jabre who can forget so early in Dover, Delaware, just two years ago. When the bumper came unhinged early in the race junior Johnson, literally tore it off from the back end of the car. And of course, coming back to win at that time carrying the Holly farms livery onto junior Johnson car kale Jabre brought the machine to victory lane thus far. He stays filling the rear view mirror of Donnie Allison's machinist, come to the stripe. It's a one two combination. With Allison out front kale. Jabre? Just hanging tight waiting to take advantage. Possibly of. Another caution flag earn. Earnhardt puts a move on Richard petty and turn one battle for second position. Earnhardt would into turn one on the low side was forced to come back up into the groove. They lost a bit of ground. Ten like separate the Allison Yarborough pairing for Richard petty, Dale Earnhardt, and while Donohoe's the lead brother, Bobby is one of those still trying to make up laughed.

It's one more time the blue and gold pink John of Dale Earnhardt right behind for cutting sixty laps to go in the Daytona five hundred years. They swing across the start finish line with Donnie Allison showing the way in the Hawaiian tropic car. Remember Allison spun early in the race looks like he was going to go a couple of laps down. He lost a labora-. So got in and out of the pits. He made it up. He goes back into the lead caled Yarborough who's lost four lapses made up to those as he hangs onto the draft of Donnie Allison. The move by Mike joy feel out of turn number two. Benny Parsons moving up. Well, had a late pitstop, and he's gaining ground is up to about seven spot six garlic separate the first two. They breakaway Richard petty. However is posing it appears as they move forty like old out, of course, at this point. It can't forget about Darrell Waltrip. He's been the quiet, man. I'll after though, but he's beginning to make his move Joan right now he currently show spin from the speedway it almost looks like a carbon copy. When is it? Applies to Darrell Waltrip of what he did yesterday in the sportsman three hundred and we'll have a complete report on that race later in the simonize world racing scoreboard. AJ Foyt comes storming around Terry Lebanese car boy, trying to get you catch up to the leaders down in turn one, but he is losing a little ground here in the Daytona five hundred from Daytona International Speedway.

The two hundred lap Daytona five hundred this one has had everything the twenty first annual Daytona five hundred Foyt continues to lose ground back in the field as he scoots back deeper and deeper toward the tail end of the field, and my joy can update from what appears to be the problem car looks to be pushing Barney that means the knows wants to climb up the race. So he's not able to corner as fast as heat lie up in the lead draft, Richard petty has caught the lead draft of Donnie Allison kale Yarbrough along with Dale Earnhardt a tie. Stop. Now. Five cars tied tightly together that lead draft Barney hall, you'd have to give a lot of credit to tie, Scott. This is a youngster. That's learned how to be a race driver. In the Winston Cup Grand National trail, and he is running very strong and solid in the fourth position. You'll comes into turnover. Four Donnie Allison is still the leader petty. Maintaining second Earnhardt is third tie. Scott is fourth and Benny Parsons is the fifth place car. They ride a six car draft down to the line. We have. Been informed from scoring that caled Yarbrough is just one lap down as hailed continues to pick his way back to the front. He just literally pushes Donnie Allison back into the number one turn. But he doesn't put a pass on him because he knows a couple of times he's already been able to get around. He doesn't want to lose the draft just sit there and wait for a break to get himself back in the lap with the leaders. They're back to my joy. And there'll be no break now. There'll be no break now as petty as just colleagues back of kale Yarbrough who served as the buffer zone on leader Donnie Allison down towards three sixty five laps to go. It's just as exciting now as it was two hours ago with Allison on top petty running second Earnhardt third.

You know that type deal, but we had clocked them in practice last week at over one hundred ninety four miles an hour on the speedway by themselves. Petty is just played it cool all afternoon. He's not been involved in any of the accidents. He's made a couple of good maneuvers to stay out of trouble. He currently rides in second spot. And he sandwiched real tight to the rear deck.

Bobby Allison two laps down in fifteenth position. Paul festive sixteen Chuck buddy Arrington is in seventeenth. Eighteenth is Bill. Dennis Richard Childress is nineteen and twenty. With is Blackie wine grin other gonna bunch them all together again as a caution flag comes out for the seventh time or the afternoon. This time Paul fest loses an engine right here at the start finish line. Quickly. Dumps the car down on the apron of the track to keep as much oil out of the high-speed group as he can. But caution is on the speedway at the Daytona International Speedway. The seventh caution flag day is on the track. And Benny Parsons has brought the Griffith Marino's onto pit road for a second time under this caution. And they go under the hood of the car some trouble on Benny Parsons car. He's been showing the top four most of the afternoon. But right now the car risk on pit road. And this is one chance that Benny Parsons gets to rest inside that Griffin Marino's mobile on the caution play you do. Yeah. I if there's a caution. Now, you think about the race? But you know, you don't have to totally concentrate on exactly what's in front of you. Exactly. What's behind you? What the gauges are telling you always. So I it's a it is a big break when we do have a caution play one hundred and forty laps into the Daytona five hundred seventh caution flag today is on the field from the Daytona international speed. This is the M are in broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. The indication has been given to the leader. Donnie, Allison correction as it came across the line. The leader is Earnhardt he has just been given the indication they will take the green flag next time by Bennie Parsons gets off pit road. Let's go to Joe alloy for report on his problem. The Griffin Marino's spent a long time own pit row. They open the hood on the car. We understand the car is overheating. So maybe it was just brushed the fresh air some cold water cooling, the car down and he's gone back out under caution. It looks like eighteen cars are out of competition. Today's Daytona five hundred forty one started this afternoon right now eighteen are resting in the garage area. One hundred and forty-one laps around the board. We're getting ready to go back to green in the twenty. First annual detente Daytona five hundred in a race that has truly had everything here today sitting up front as they get ready to go back to green. We'll be Earnhardt the sensational. Young rookie driver from capless North Carolina. Donnie, Allison rides in the second position. AJ Foyt a quick. Pitstop puts himself back into third. Spot. Didn't lose any ground on that one tie Scott continues to show well in the top five this afternoon, he is fourth and Waltrip being indicated as the fifth place car. Harry Hyde is a very good judge of talent. He has brought such great racing stars is the late Bobby Isaac up into prominence in Winston Cup Grand National competition. He gave Neil Bonnett one of his best rides in his career. The same can be said for Dave, Marcus. And he tapped tie Scott to run the rust talks prepared number thirty in nineteen seventy nine, and when we talked to Harry Hyde, and he's a man of few words, we asked him what he thought of tiny said, he's the next Mario Andretti out of Pennsylvania, and thus far showing forth in the Daytona five hundred higher. Harry. I mustn't be too far off the Mark here. They come green flag for the field as they come barreling down by gates seven head for the start finish line. Bobby Allison immediately dives underneath Earnhardt to try and make up a lap on the field. They go door to door across the start finish line as Donnie Allison just rides in the draft as a head up into the banking. Intern. One Bobby Allison has been lapsed down. Ever since early caution when he Donnie and kailua bro tangled coming out of turn to and he just can't get by the leader to unlock himself. It's Earnhardt out of turn to Donnie Allison told than AJ Foyt ties, Scott, Richard petty, kale, Jabre and Darrell Waltrip side. My side racing on the backstretch. Donnie, Allison in the Hawaiian tropic Owl's makes his bid it's successful. He's back in the lead Earnhardt Rudd second point whole third high Scottsdale fourth Richard petty by Darrell Waltrip here comes kale Jabre random. Oh, Cagliari pro going downstairs, both Darrell Waltrip and Richard petty battling back of six place on the running order I fail. You are still going door hand in the door handle with Richard petty Yarborough on the lower grew a mad scramble at the start finish line. Donnie, Allison wide the point hit some field as they hit back to turn one Earnhardt is there in the draft back in third position AJ sports car and Richard petty takes a low group to the bottom of the racetrack to try and get out of traffic there in front of Mike joy, petty slips back Chuck bound who has lapsed down in Jabre with glued onto the back bumper the petty. Ios mobile many Parsons right behind if they slipped back up the draft from third spot on back. Single file now in the long freight train kale tucking in behind Richard. Here's the move by AJ point now as he tries to break fast. Bobby Allison Donnie continues to hold believe AJ point on the most side the as a man going with them in the draft. It's tie Scott. But AJ can't quite make you ask the pullback in tucked underneath Bobby Allison doctor for running on number three. So the leadership still held by Donnie Allison the head of the line twelve cars in the draft again as they come across the stripe. Allison, the leader. Donnie, Allison out fuck Earnhardt, his second third fourth boy and fourth is Richard petty. And biff position and moving right now comes Thais, Scott Yarborough, try the low group petty who would have none of that state up. High slip back up the draft behind tie, Scott and Richard petty. Dow Hanks onto the fifth possession. We'll see now Dale Earnhardt tries to make a move as Donnie Allison bring the train down the back straightaway. Thundering at full power Earnhardt content to hold it right in tucked in tight. Grab boy to cedars third with Scott board at this point. The best thing to do is stay in that single file they do. Everybody takes the metal groove through the turn though possibly a bit lower. At the tail end of that draft for buddy, partial on the Turnage Nottingham, Dale Earnhardt them AJ point, followed by Thais, Scott, and Richard petty. Donnie, Allison playing one hundred ninety mile an hour concerto at the wheel of the Hawaiian tropic Oldsmobile darts dies into turn one one car kicking up a lot of smoke in the revile. That's the CRC chemicals machine. For Richard Childress out of Winston, Salem, North Carolina. But he continues to run on the high side as he goes in front of Mike joy Lee draft. Still single file Donnie Allison Dale Earnhardt void his third Scott is four pettiest fifth. Garber all parts of the seventh Waltrip is eight. You haven't heard his name much this afternoon at forty seven year old Kuku, Marlin is one of those dozen cars at the men running up there for the lead each tagging field. Now, they moved to the hive accent turn or a front running automobiles. Kaley are still trying to chase down Richard petty at the Taylor. That number one draft again bunny harshest adhering full very well down on the lower side of the race struck eight cars in the league draft this time across the stripe. Donnie, Allison and Earnhardt and Ken for the moment. Just arrived to car grabbing to open up some separation on the field. They can't do it from Daytona International Speedway. This is the bar in broadcasting company. Back here Daytona International Speedway. The lead teams are going into turn number three cars the draft. Donnie, Allison leading them through Earnhardt running. Second third. Then comes a tie Scott automobile, fourth followed by Richard petty theft kailua, bro in sex. Then the Darrell Waltrip automobile before any of us. We'll away bow. Benny Parsons off the pace. He may have a problem may be headed for the bids. The report was Benny Parsons marine supply car was overheating. He brings it onto pit road. Meanwhile, Barney hall we have checked with NASCAR scoring and they have determined. The kale Jabre is on the same lap with your leader. Donnie Allison, there has never been a Daytona five hundred like this when we were approaching the one hundred fifty lap. Mark this time by with fifty laps to go. The leader is Donnie Allison rookie driver. Dale Earnhardt, hanging on to second spot AJ Foyt content for the moment to just ride the draft tie. Scott the driver from pin Arjil, Pennsylvania, not a natural born race, Mark. That it took him about two years to get his feet in the carpet. But now that he has he is hanging onto the best in the business down in turn one. Barney all your watch the run by Donnie Allison you've got to wonder if he's ever been scared inside a race car. Well, Jackie I, you know, I have to say that I've been scared reservation, you know. I have a lot of respect to the place. And I think respected certain amount of fear in, you know, I'm not one I joke. A lot about saying that scared to hell out of me, you know, or something like that. Well, I have confidence in myself. And I I don't scare myself. Well, that confidence is really surfaced here this afternoon Barney as he is put that car out. And you can't forget that last year. He felt a little bit cheated in his run for the Daytona five hundred when an early problem departure law selling prepared machine, but thus far this afternoon with one hundred fifty laps completed in this Daytona five hundred three hundred seventy five miles down one hundred four ago, he's out front over that rookie, Dale Earnhardt. And that's a great run for that kid to Lee draft works their way in front of my joy. And for the moment, they seem to be content to run those detailing. Could it be my joy the guys who running back second third fourth and fifth figure why go to believe because we're you're going the draft. You can't run away from anybody. And they just seem to ride that way. That's right Barney. Once you get out of the draft here at Daytona. Once you get down on the low side, you can be easily be freight train all the way to the back of the drafted right now that Lee draft is ten cars, so say the second place driver could go for the lead in up tip. It just a battery seconds. And of course, you look ahead about forty laps or so Monty hall. You've got the figure where does that come? Talked about the slingshot intern number four. Well, we haven't these and all that much of it a lot of people talking. Now, you've got to make the move on the backstretch the repaving of the track of change. The quality's just you might see that move for the French coming up on turn number three instead of turn for slingshot kale. Jabre how early in a race? Do you begin to think about what you'll do on that last lap think about that all the time? Especially when you running with somebody that you know, you might have to beat at the end. So I concentrate on that all day long on sometimes it works. And sometimes you got circumstances on the last lap did makes it impossible to work. But you still think about it and try to plan ahead keeping you abreast as well. In the national pit crew comp competition championship going there from the Sears craftsman people tie, Scott, and Harry height of teamed up in that crew is now posting the fastest time overall on pit road at two hundred ninety seven point seven, oh, two seconds. So they lead that one over Richard petty with average with an aggregate speed of three hundred and twenty seconds point six eight three two point six eight for second fastest on pit road nap alongside Richard petty. But tie Scott leads in that chase for several thousand dollars been posted by the Sears craftsman. Hateful that draft continues to wind around that. I told a speedway as we mentioned a moment ago. They seem content for the moment. Just to ride those positions the leader again. Is Donnie Allison Dale Earnhardt Sahan AJ boy is third tie. Scott is fourth Richard petty is in fifth position kale. Yarborough ride six. The seventh-place car is narrow walterman here. They come across by running exactly that order and Earnhardt sneaks peak down on the end side. This time looked like he wanted to move up and take the lead as they work their way back into turn one her and art Hata look what he's back in the groove. Donnie, Allison came down at turnover. One down to the second route from the bottom, usually when the running single file like this. They run one grew away from the wall a second through as they are. Now single file nine cars in the league draft nearing that four hundred mile Mark no change in the position smoothly allied now. Petty drops about three car lengths back behind kale. Yarborough? Oh, running fifth-place. Richard six Waltrip is seven interesting to watch Richard petty. This time it goes through turns them or three and four directly in that straight line through with everybody else last couple times around Richard petty has gone way outside of the wall. As it's been known to do that outside grove is pretty much been Richard petty. Early years, Richard petty, y it Daytona to you run so close to the outside retaining barrier. A day when I come down here we had a Plymouth, and it was probably the slowest gone racetrack. And only way I could ruin was was draft in with somebody. And I learned right quick at the lower. I run the more horsepower took in other words when you run low, the the car sticks better and it bogs down. So takes horsepower to get it up out of the corner. And I also learned that minko the drafts on outside of a car not on the inside of a car. And you know, like, I say at that particular time I was having use every trick at anybody could rank of and and dry anything in. And I just got in the habit of running next to the wall. And you know, even when later on when I got a car that was quicker quicker than anybody else's. It was just a natural place to run and I ruined earn. I run they're comfortable, and you know, as long as I can do it. Then I think it's the safest place on the racetrack that that's the voice of Richard petty. And he does take a unique line almost around any speedway. He goes to you can always pick him out in the corners running right against the retaining. Let's take a look at the rundown as we have at Donnie Allison leading Dale Earnhardt, insect AJ. Void is third tie. Scott. His fourth running in fifth at the present time has kale Jabre. Six position belongs to Richard petty. Darrell Walter is in seven eighth to Terry. Labonte COO Marlin is night. One lap down in tenth is Chuck bound in the kings in Oldsmobile running eleven as decay origin the midwestern farms entry in twelfth position as Frank Warren in thirteenth is Bill. Dennis in fourteenth is Bobby Allison Errington his fifteenth sixteenth. Ralph Jones and seventeen two laps down to the leader is Benny Parsons and the Daytona International Speedway. We are two laps away from the final one hundred miles of the Daytona five hundred is Blackie way, injuring of Bloomington. Minnesota takes his car behind the wall from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company. Eight cars continued just eat around the Daytona International Speedway as they scoot back off into the number one corner. It is still Donnie Allison leading Earnhardt hanging out of a second. Bottom AJ Ford is there in third position now sandwiched in that group is Bobby Allison. He is some laps down. Will update you on that in a minute. But he is in a good position to make up a lap. If indeed we have another caution flag before the end of this race latest report is Bobby Allison the depending champion for the Daytona five hundred is two laps down. But he's in a great position to make up one of those farney. He is posted in the fourteenth position. At the present. Time kale Yarbrough has squeezed the Bush Oldsmobile up into fourth position. And what to come back for kale Yarborough that would have to be the story of the Daytona five hundred four racetrack body, Dale Earnhardt heading to the pets. Here's Earnhardt, pitting his car, and this might be a routine pitstop stop. There might be some trouble on the car. Let's go to Joel alloy. Earnhardt is running coming in on the throttle. Any had some difficulty stopping the mechanics are going over to the right hand side of the car. They are changing the tires. Now. This is an unscheduled pitstop. We are not under caution pleading the windshield. And putting them the gasoline will watch for a moment and see if they go to the other side of the car. But as we said he came in very hot great fast. Rome interferes that he's going to change only the right side rubber while they had a problem with Jack Jack got hung underneath the car. And he had a problem. Getting started going back out on the track. Now could have had a cut tire on the machine. It's Earnhardt fives to beat the field back to the start finish line here. They come out of four he does not want to go a lap down. And he gets back onto the speedway is the field closes on him across the stripe. The leader is now Alison up in a second position AJ point third kale. Yarbrough fourth is ties Scott and fifth is Richard petty that Lee draft head back into turnover. One. The racetrack at point comes right down. Elaine and holds him off. They've been willing like that for the last four left. Dale earnhardt's pitstop may have been on schedule. But he should now. Be able to go the distance to the checkered flag Yarbrough is going to try it again at the backstretch. They're moving quickly on Earnhardt, not yet back up to speed the practice gonna catch him Earnhardt just lost the left. Donnie, Allison, he's down low on the track. Donnie, Allison, AJ Ford entail. Although by dark, then comes the kale Yarbrough automobile Fudd by the one of tie, Scott, Richard petty, Darrell fail Earnhardt, dumping, Trump kicked all the way back behind the wall. Chip car, and he tucks fun of chunk found Earnhardt picks up the lead draft in his like backup there with the front voters Dadi Alison winds his way back into turnover. One as the Benny Parsons card Ripa th marine Oldsmobile pulls back on the pit road. And the hood goes up again for the third time on that machine. Barney these lengthy periods of caution as we've had how many now seven different distinct caution periods have necessitated or actually made it possible for us to go the entire race. Without a green flag pit stop for your front. Runners. So if we go down to the final hundred miles without benefit of a caution. We'll see the first time the high speed ballet in these cruises. Six guys come over the wall to service these thirty-seven hundred pound stock cars something else we need to start looking for on the racetrack. The kind of paisley of set here all day. We have not seen that much experimenting with different cars who can pass who. Where's the best place on the racetrack yet around? I think we'll start seeing some of that as they set up for shootout. And the Daytona five Donnie Allison on the last lap. What will be your strategy? Depend on who it is Jackie in cars run. A compared to their north Idaho about have the opportunity to try a little harder in into race. What I might do. And know everything goes, we'll definitely find out before the what I gotta do to to get her back around here for. So, you know, I don't know whether it'd be better to pass on the backstretch or to do it in front bread away for you get to the flag, you know, Natone a little harder to do it or project. News does start line in the middle of the race. Where Donald egging, you know, you do have the whole front straightaway in. I don't know yet. I know one thing it if you comes down to a last lap duel with me and just Bob you're Daryl or any of those guys you can bet I won't be trying everything I can to win. Well, that Hodson Thunderbird of his brother right now continues to ride the draft of that Hawaiian tropicals mobile. So out front is an Oldsmobile is Bobby Allison is latched onto Brown. We mentioned a minute ago. He is a couple of laps down. But if we get a caution, there's no doubt that he'll try and swing around immediately and make up another one of those laps. The field is in front of Mike joy a battle for second. Spot kailua Ruas finally found a way around AJ fourth through turns one and two Yarborough now rides second only one car separating donning Alison at kale Yarborough that AVI is down lapsed of the leaders kale making the world right now he tucks himself in behind. Bobby Allison, followed by A J Foyt ties Scott automobile going by some slower rates traffic. Donaldson pace outside retaining wealth ahead for the home. Thirty four laps remaining in the Daytona five hundred two hundred laps. Make up this afternoon as Donnie Allison leads him across the stripe and kale Yarborough. Is there the Bush Oldsmobile just pushes the Allison brothers back into turn? One Yarborough must have the strongest car the race track. Right now Foyt had held him off for ten laps when you are go high point would be there. Same thing. Bottom of the race track. With Yarborough is now second breathing down the backup Allison's Thunderbird. No change in the order nine cars in the draft Chuck mound. Former Winston west champion from the west coast. He'll celebrate his twentieth. Birthday on Thursday, the ninth tar in that draft. His kale trying to close at all. No, he just keeps himself about a car length or so behind Bobby Allison is content on the lower groove trying to make his Thais concrete cuts underneath aside, Richard petty. But he ducked back inside two of the toughest drivers in the business lead. This Daytona five hundred Donnie Allison out front kale. Jabre finds himself running third on the race track. But second overall in sandwiched in between and who could play possibly the key. Spoiler role is the national engineering car for Bobby Allison. Other of your leader Donny as they go to Mike joy still in challenge. Position AJ point in third spot, Richard petty for Darrell Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt at tie Scott on the tail the drafts. No change in the procession. Single file nobody making a move on the back straightaway. This time the listen brothers leading kailua rural with point two car. Lex back forth on the track. Third in the race. That's almost an eerie feeling going to experimental Barney hall before Dale Earnhardt back in the traces. He goes side by side with Donald wall of framing the number five position. There are eighty miles to go in this twenty first annual Daytona five hundred Barney home. Wilbur shortly. You're going to see kale Jabre put a move. I'm sure on Donnie Allison to see. Indeed. If he can scoot around him Earnhardt has been up there of all the drivers probably this afternoon who have found out what they can do with their car. Earnhardt would be in the best probably position. He is come from eighth and ninth position on several occasions. Come up through the field drafted around everyone and went into the lead a couple of times. So he should be in the best shape. As far as that goes. Donnie Allison has been out there. Alison made up a couple of laps that he lost. When he spun early in the race today. So he still leads the pack is a hit up in turn three kale. Yarborough the comeback of the day the comeback of the year for that matter at Daytona. When you get more maps down here with a kind of competition that year, they tone a and make the comeback has you have done a day's work hours hall in the pit area now day, Marcus who would have liked have come back today. Not even able to get out on the track right now because David appears at something did break in the automobile. Well, the car was running pretty decent than the caution that come out and was heading into three. And I feel the vibration. I tried to knock it oughta gear, but something broke internally in the motor and it locked up car started to spend Dave the way the cars are stacked up. Now, would you like to predict a winner because they're staying closer together than they ever have? While it looks to me stand down here in radio booth like Donnie in Bobby running along real well and kale is back in there again. So it probably come out or one of those three cars. Marcus in the pit area. Well, it's going to come out of one of those seven or eight cars, they're still all there in that eight car draft across describe Donnie Allison just continues to put laps on the board and the Hawaiian tropic Oldsmobile second-place car Yarbrough Bush Owl's is there AJ foot in the Gilmore valvoline car. Boy has not been heard from that much today. But he has driven a steady race and run of the top ten in the last almost all day for that matter. But in the last one hundred miles he is just an assistant running fourth and fifth and doesn't want to raise anybody at this point just ride in the draft and the draft it looks as if Barney hall will be the determining factor is to who will come into victory lane in the end of this Daytona five hundred as we look at some six cars that are actually now it's down to five cars that are capable of riding that Bobby Allison, of course, one lap down as he trails. His brother Donnie to the stripe, but it will be one of those tremendous Daytona finishes. I'm sure as we get down to one hundred seventy one laps completed just. Seventy two and a half miles left in the average speed is one hundred ten point three zero miles per hour. The lead draft works the banking and the West End of the speedway. There is a second raft. Going on back about a second of the half behind. Donnie, Allison and the rest of the crew in front of Mike joy that second drew. That second drew fell back of it. With Dale Earnhardt went underneath tie, Scott Dera. Walter followed him up through that will move Earnhardt up a bit. He is the only driver in that draft. That's made his final pitstop Richard petty trying to get up you're catching donelson dropped way down. Lou Alison, drops low and kale. Yarborough loose lie goal to take the lead. Johnny Ottesen goes down. Five kale? Yarbrough? Go buy sodas AJ point lake wise, Richard petty at the head to the pets. The Allison brothers have elected to pit Jackie route. And this could be a very good calculated move on the Allison brothers. Bobby Allison as we said, very possibly playing the spoiler role. Both cars electing to come in on a pit road for what should be their final. Pitstop the crews go to work cost. Ellington in the team. I'm a Hawaiian tropicals mobile come over the wall. And they go to work right side rubber on both cars, the national engineering team for the but more people the Ford Thunderbird is being service in these two cars you can plan on it are going to hit you up on a draft. When they go back out to race. Will they have been running a good combination all afternoon, they run together. Enough laps to know that they can lead the field. Nobody's been able to get around them. So they elect to pit together. The Allison brothers of Huey town Alabama and the head back onto the speedway down in the West End of the track. Now, our runners and petty is dropping off the track in front of goal. Richard credit cut right down for turn before he heads to put road petty will be this third to been Betty's crew waiting to service, the S T mobile don't count Richard petty out. He's won the Daytona fi- five hundred five times. He would like to make it six here this afternoon. He has won a total of seven major victories here at Daytona. And it's been so long. He's tried to beat out one hundred and eighty five career victories is the winningest driver and competition actually, the winningest driver ever in NASCAR Winston Cup competition, but he's gone so long since July fourth in nineteen seventy seven without tasting victory. They've completed the service on the mobile, Dale Inman and MAURICE petty put brother and cousin Richard petty back out onto the race about a fourteen second pitstop and a quick one Richard petty as they get him back on the speedway in a hurry. So there is one more pitstop for most of the front runners now Earnhardt pitted on lap one sixty one which would give him almost ninety six ninety seven miles to go. And whether he's going to gamble and stay out there. Try to make one less pitstop than everybody else. We're going to have to wait and see. Our Joe alley are pit commentator. I'm sure is going down to check with role in a lotta on the Buick car number two from the Austrian stable to see if they will gamble because it is a calculated risk, but you can go just about one hundred miles here at Daytona on a tank of union. Seventy six racing fuel still believe Dow's caled Yarborough Floyd is the second place car Waltrip scoots up to third position Thais Scott fourth Richard petty had been showing in fifth but petty has pitted. Since that time Bill Dennis brings car number nineteen onto pit road as the front runners stay on the track. We're watching kale Yarbrough, scar CNBC on a drop off the banking this time, and he does here comes caled Yarborough knee will pit the Bush Oldsmobile. Let's go to Joe alloy. Apparently Joe is checking on the situation with Dale earnhardt's car to see if they will try and go the distance as they go to work on kale Yarbrough machine, your fourth-place machine tie, Scott who is leading in the national pit crew competition as overshot his pits. This will be costly in that cash award bonuses. Well, as costly form as he runs fourth overall, the services completed on the Bush, beer prepared. Oldsmobile kale Yarbrough is away. Yarbrough goes through the gears and comes down to the West End of the pit road area. The pitstop on kale thirteen in eight tenths seconds quick. Stop for the Arbroath crew, but they are one of the best in the business. But of late the last year in Winston Cup Grand National competition. Pitstops if you're over fifteen seconds. You're not even in the ball game in our AJ Floyd off turnover. Foreign goes into pit road area, yet another of the leaders and for services boy who had taken over lead as everybody else was pitting now pits, the cadre fifty-one, the valvoline Gilmore car and Foyt gives up the lead to Darrell Waltrip machine. The gatorade. So maybe lean inherits the lead buddy Parrott, however is preparing for their last pit stop on pit road and car number eighty eight that Daugaard data raid Oldsmobile is the last car of the lead teams that have yet to show on pit road. And that's expected because he always has been getting phenomenal gas mileage, we saw it happen in riverside, California. And it gave him a victory and today he's running out just as far as he can which will reduce the amount of time. They left to spend on road fourteen point eight seconds on AJ points pinched up as it goes back onto the speedway those positions. Here they told comes Walter. Up to the fence so Walter who inherits the lead now comes onto pit road to make his stop his checking with a pit crew there. Learn heart we understand that he will not he will not make another pitstop. They're going to chance it. It was a scheduled pitstop early. So they're going to make the rest of the race on that tank gasoline. Well, that could be a good gamble for Dale Earnhardt. It could be a bad one. But we'll have to wait and see the service continues on the Gatorade. Number eighty eight. The DAI guard crew is completed their task and Darrell Waltrip returns to the race in eight an eight tenth seconds, right? Number forest. Donnie, Allison, Bobby Allison and kale Yarbrough right down three in a row. They just linked back on the ramp. Jackie route and try to make up as much ground on the field as they can prompt Daytona International Speedway. This is the are in broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. One hundred seventy eight laps have been posted on the scoreboard here as we get down to the conclusion of the Daytona five hundred now to cars jump out into the lead. Donnie, Allison's is in front caled Yarborough picks up the draft. And they try to pull away from the field, and they have broken the draft on Bobby Allison to try and make it a two car shootout instead of a five car shootout as they've been running here they come on crossing the line and they stick 'em together. And you're gonna see some type drafting spinal fifty or sixty miles of the Daytona five hundred they scoot back into turn one. No more than a foot apart the old Soviet Donnie Allison at kale, Yarbrough kale. Runs up a bit into that fourth. Hi, groove and drops about half a car like back still tuck timely the draft long way back to AJ voice, and Richard petty is leading up with point in a draft to catch them a remarkable comeback for the two front runners. They were both involved in that early. Tangle off. Turn number two. Donnie, Allison drafting with kale Yarborough just about three feet behind setting up return. Four course we're gonna take those identical middle groves now floating a bit higher touch the wall. They come out of turn number four with Donnie Allison holding about a half car clean possibly they stretch. Their lead over the rest of the field. The two os will be able to come down one hundred and eighty laps complete four hundred and fifty miles are down in the Daytona five hundred back in turn one. And they continue to stretch that lead. My joy Donnie Allison looks to be handling a little better going into the turn Barney. He can open that advantage from one foot up to about a car. Like y'all grow has to run a little bit higher groove. It'll be interesting to see if kale can pass Donnie on the inside if it comes down to a last lap shootout right at this particular point is they come down the back straightaway. Looking into turn three we'll be the spot where we anticipate any move may have to be made but comes to the last lap situation. And of course, further back AJ Foyt and Richard petty. They continue to try and hook up together. They're running together for good, but of real estate Sep. Rating themselves from the leaders less than fifty miles ago in the Daytona five hundred is the two front cars scream across the start finish line about four seconds back. Here comes Darrell Walker and Walter has nobody to draft on him. He continues to lose ground, and there could be a problem on wall trips car, right Joe alloy. Yes, probable, Darrell Waltrip car. We were trying to check on that when he came in. They put the first tank of gasoline up is they want to put the second tight up. Darrell pulled also evidently he did not get a full tank of gasoline at could be a big factor in the closing laps of this race. It could indeed be a big factor for Walter. He's in third position right now. But he is losing ground at the front. Twosome of Donnie, Allison kale Yarborough. Bobby? Allison right now is coasting. Turn number foreign pose it download apron area. Bobby Allison semi to lose powers. It goes through certain three and four. Here's Bobby Allison bringing the Hodson car, The Thunderbird of bud. More onto pit road and a break for him. If he has mechanical problems, it looks to be maybe a cut tire on the car the way it's handling as he brings it into the pits. Alison pits. The call number fifteen meanwhile on the speedway caled Yarborough. And Donnie Allison continue the just stretch the distance on the field. And it looks like one car slowing down on the backstretch to be caught a twenty-seven Benny Parsons he's hitting up into tournament. Three. Any Parsons goes by he's been limping for quite some time. Barney and tie Scott was just passed by the front runners as they approach Eli gold tried the front runners moving. My Scott really can't say enough about the youngster out of Puerto Pennsylvania. We've been talking about him all afternoon, quite a creditable sewing for him here today. But the difference is bid, Bobby and Donnie Allison elected to pick a moment ago together and try and get back out in the draft that didn't work kale Yarbrough now nudges in on that draft and bay linkup to run away from the field. They'll try settle among themselves in the final apps of the Daytona five hundred Parni, evidently, Bobby Allison did have a cut left front tyre. The car was handling very poorly as it came in. Bobby news, the pitstop on all four tires and full tank of gas that could be to his advantage. We'll have to see my joy, it looks like the third fourth and fifth place. Car have linked up in light of you. They have indeed AJ point leads Darrell Waltrip and Richard petty in a tight draft looks like he's going to look on the low side of the Gulf two three three Patty ducks back. Now, he slips up at the high side of the groove, but it's Foyt walterman petty third fourth and fifth. No change in position for those three as they moved to turn number four AJ with Darrell Waltrip, and Richard petty and putting predictively taking a bit of a higher line not noticeably. So AJ Foyt in front of this is the battle for the third position. Foyt leads Darrell Waltrip in the Gatorade car which runs fourth and Richard petty with a very good posting as at least they're down to arguing points finishing five hundred miles coming close to it runs in the fifth spot. But all of a sudden pennies backed out of the throttle. Just a wee bitten his lost the draft by about two Carling's. He builds up the mainspring on the car and gavitt back in as he goes in front of Mike joy, these caught them again out of to Jackie something happened a petty coming at turn one and he dropped back a bit. But he's right with them. Now any tuck it in on the inside of up now he has to duck back into the single file procession. No change under the high banks. It's still quite leading that three car battle for third again through the turns though, interesting I'll Foyt and Walsh up put a bit of daylight between themselves and Richard putty, but accelerating off the third Richard petty. Right back on the tail of Walter Nettie looks to the inside of Darrell Waltrip, they are hub to hub in the battle for the fourth position is the exit the trial Valeria petty now tries to appropriate third away from A J Foyt as they go into one Patty on the low side of the race track is passed Waltrip. He's into fourth position. He's still three colleagues backup. Boy, but points car's been pushing toward the top of the racetrack. If petty can ruin the bottom he could get by AJ almost a full straightaway fullback stretch now separating second and third. Here comes Richard petty now heading with the V Oldsmobile number forty three going door handle or head over day. J Foyt in turn number three by our side by side through the turn up the Bank, psycho and still no way you could tell them apart. Richard funny side foot on the high side. I'm certainly changer. The fact that and again conferral blanket across them as they head to the lines wrong battled for the third position Richard petty against the flex the muscles of yesterday will Bill and he couldn't have picked a tougher competitor to do it on AJ foot. They still ride. Door to door. And that group is fifteen point four seconds behind the front two. They're back in one AJ has the straightaway speed, but it is petty through the tourist at turned to petty underneath point, Richard petty rods. Third point is fourth Walter bes- fifth. They're still in tight draft at a tremendous battle for the lead have just gone by us it still kale Albro tucked in behind. Donnie Allison now on the race for third your point yet traffic treaty down the backstretch boy back into their place AJ Foyt appropriate spot number three going on the low side of Richard petty petty running behind him followed by Darrell Waltrip, they go by the storm and Saint of Benny Parsons out of turn number four still AJ Foyt in the battle for third behind that battle for third position run against six this Chuck bound, Dale Earnhardt is running seven eighth to Scott, Terry. La bounty, rookie is running in ninth tenth to gluco. Marlin Bobby Allison was running any Levin. Frank Warren will now move into eleven and Benny Parsons will be shown in the twelfth musician. I'm now, Terry Labonte. That's good looking rookie who came off turn number four and pulls a deadly pretty slows the headstone. Pit road. Thirteen laps to go in the Daytona five hundred is LA body pulls his car onto the pit road this afternoon. Here comes the front. Two cars were going to put the clock on him this time around and see what speed they're turning around the speedway, and we get down to the conclusion of NATO five hundred meanwhile, Richard petty as tested out AJ Foyt. He moved around a moment ago foot comes right back to take over the third spot as Walter picks up the draft and a moment ago, it sounded like you might have had a sick engine on the car. And we've had a report that he might not have got a full tank of fuel last time by but in riverside, California the last couple of races out there. He is proved that that car seems to get better mileage than anybody as we come down to the one hundred eighty nine flap. Donnie Allison may be thinking about nineteen seventy four when he was leading this Daytona five hundred in the die guard team entry when he blew a tire and had to miss his pit road area. And it cost him any hopes of victory Allison screams out of turn number four and comes to the stripe looking in his rear view mirror. All he can see is the tinted glass of the Bush bureaus mobile. Deal with kale Jabre gritting his teeth and waiting to gun him down as they go into turn number one. A kale has stayed. No more than one car like back. Donnie, Allison kale strike seems to be in the straightaway. Going into the turn Allison is able to open up one maybe even two Carlex but coming off turn number two kale comes back up, right? Onto the bumper the red and white Hawaiian tropic machine at every time they've come down the backstretch by the time. They've reached our vantage point feet in the air and turn three pale is tucked right up there. No more than a couple of feedback on. Of course, the old question is strange that might sound indeed on daytonas track in a two car battle and powerful automobiles. We are do you? Indeed wanna be in first place coming off to a possible slingshot situation. Forty six point four seconds last time around this dynamic duo is a swing back into the West End of the speedway that translates to just over one hundred ninety four miles an hour. He'll Yarbrough right now. And Donnie Allison getting around the speedway. It's still over one hundred nine. Four miles an hour. They moved back to Mike joy Terry Labonte low on the race track. And he will be co stick around a history as the two leaders work race, traffic, Allison and Yarborough still glued knows detail. The traffic seems to be no problem whatsoever. Donnie, brings them through Kayla's right there laughing a couple of slower cars moving toward turn four. And of course, race traffic. No factor right now as only buddy Arrington automobile, I'm and buddies right now crossing the start finish line while Allison Yarbrough working for number four will not only are the fans going to have to decide what they want to watch on this last lap. Their sure watching the battle between Donnie Allison and Jabre as they'll shoot it out for the Finnish. If they hang together because they have a commanding lead right now over fifteen seconds. But the battle is just as strong for that third spot among Richard petty AJ point and Darrell Waltrip where will they make their move here. They come down by gates seven moved back to the start finish line at the Daytona International Speedway. As we get down to the conclusion of the twenty first annual Daytona five hundred point leads them across the line. This time takes four. Car draft back into turn one Ford has two car likes on Richard petty. Darrell Waltrip is glued right onto Pettis buffer. Chuck 'bout his try to hold onto that. That includes the third fourth and fifth place. Cars Gail Jabre tried to take a peek to the inside as he went in front of Eli gold rowdy turned four. Exactly Jackie KO was looking around us party guiding back and forth. Maybe breathing the car a bit but still trying to experimented. Finding hall saying before seven laps remaining on this race track. When is he going to try and test out things Barney? I think that we would we'll have to look and speculate onto as whether you want to lead the last lap or be in second in the past races here for the last couple of years. It seems that the guy that is in front is the fellow that comes home victorious on that last lap. It's not like before and the Stanton radiator people have posted a cash award for it. They call it the pressure award. They will post cash awards to the driver who leads the white flag lap because they say in the past it wasn't necessarily the guy that wins the Daytona five hundred. Let's check with our turn reporters right now. Find out how they feel is finished Nobel, Mike joy, you've watched them draft on and off around the track all afternoon as far as kale and are concerned if it comes down to those two who will do it Kaliev number. He came from three laps behind an on each occasion. He went underneath Donnie Allison to race back to the flag and take back a lab if he could do it again he could win. This Daytona five hundred Gary Jerrell, who do you pick? I don't think there's any question in my mind, just as bike just pointed out took the got back on the leader's lap. He made his move right at our vantage point going into three. And it was Donnie Allison he had to get by any did it. It seemed almost effortlessly. Let's kale Yarborough right now to nothing let's go to ally. Gold and see how who he picks far as it turned out to concern. I'll have to make animus caviar bro right now. So close us. He and Donnie Allison come motoring right in front of my position here. I've got to expect that Kayla's gonna make the move knocking foot of Gary turn number three on forsakes links dry here in turn number four. We'll see the move made a bit earlier than our location here will have. Has become a team effort among these two to draft the use it in one hundred twenty five mile qualifying races. They made their pit stops came back out linked it up and they're five laps to go for the Daytona five hundred and the settlement A-List that. I am Barney hall. I'm good at pick. Donnie, Allison, I've seen a lot of racist. Here. The last couple of weeks in the last couple of years, and it always seems to be the guy that runs in second position that comes up on the short end of the stick lately, it's been the leader on the last lap. That comes home victorious will while all that discussion is going on about first and second. There is a whale about going off for third position, Richard petty. Just put a move on AJ point and Walter Friday draft him around what shut the door on Waltrip, but petty slides into third spot. They're heading down the back shoot and into turn for stay be colors that familiar day glow, orange, red whatever you wanna call it on the blue the Oldsmobile of Richard petty just in front of AJ point there a long trip in is Gatorade eighty eight right there. Also fake middle grove turns three and four on coming around the high PECS turn Richard petty with the car late. Paddock over AJ five half. Curly. Brockton. Darrell Waltrip third fourth and fifth position ride nose to tail petty. The third car point is in four Walter is in fifth right now in the speedway at a still Donnie Allison caled Yarborough. They haven't even cracked throttle. They run just about a foot apart to put just as much separation on that third fourth and fifth place. Cars they can't here they come out of turn four. Jan perations have been made in. There is a camera star standing by the start finish line. That will click off this finish it over a thousand frames a second as many people are at dissipating one of the closest Daytona five hundred finishes ever Barney hall. Traffic may play a problem. There are four cars directly ahead of the front twosome. Now remember that has happened on occasion here at Daytona International Speedway. David pearson. Squeeze caled Yarborough in behind one of the lap cars here in firecracker four hundred not too long ago and won that race. It could happen again today in nineteen seventy eight is in the Daytona firecracker four hundred David Pearson Cy Baxter, price and carnival Forty-five going down the backstretch and he used Baxter. Ice as a wedge to deny kale Jabre victory in that independence day classic. You can be sure that Donnie Allison is just as Tuffah thinker. When it comes down to last lap strategy is the silver FOX Pearson was and the firecracker race one year ago. Donnie, Allison use that strategy a couple of years ago to block Darrell Waltrip separate to win a sportsman three hundred year, they told her so it is indeed going to be interesting. This last two or three laps front to some work traffic down in turn one as they head to Mike joy tough break for Terry. Labonte of young rookie driver has pulled his car. The Enfield turned to Donnie Allison kale. Jabre one car like separate of what a waiting game kale Yarbrough has been playing here sitting right on Bobby Allison's bumper these last twenty laps Hege sedative in earlier we've seen a bit of everything today. Now, flashing cow for some traffic. Bashing black record on the side. Donnie, Allison holds the advantage to have Carlin over kale rural. As far as traffic is concerned, buddy. Arrington the next car to contend with house laters Donaldson and Kaley Gabrielle move up behind the exiting turn number four here. They. Come down to the stripe. They will move around buddy. Arrington number sixty seven still out front. Two laps to go in the Daytona five hundred is they worked the biking down and Turner one. Donnie Allison is still out front kale. Jabre tucked in on his bumper. The battle for the third position. It's Richard petty writing third wall trip is fourth and in the fifth. Spot is AJ Foy. The leaders are into Donnie Allison has been able to run a little bit lower say half a groove in kailua, bro. Give it comes down to the last Alison could get down to the bottom and hold off kale and the next card. Donnie, Allison, his brother, Bobby Allison. Could it be a factor as they come toward for? This will be a last lap finish. And Joe alloy is making his way to the to the victory lane area. And we'll be able to talk to these competitors. At the end of this Daytona five hundred while here, they come out of turn number four. The white flag is in chip warrants hand as he gets ready to split. Donnie, Allison, kale, just tucked in there. When will Yarbrough make his move a flash across the stripe and white flag for Donnie Allison they're back in turn one last lap. Donnie Allison is twenty colleagues. Back up brother, Bobby Donna leads kailua row by two Carlex. There. One grew from the top of the racetrack and kale's bushels mobile stays allied right on the back bumper of Donnie Allison, they're out of turn to their down the backstretch here goes kale. The inside. It'll make the move down very close to the grass Donnie time. Paled hit the bath. He tried to bullet back Domi side-by-side conduct. Hope hit the wall. They hit the wallet. Third. Number free will have a new leader diving down into the field as we look for the leaders coming up the back straight. They are in turn to in front of my joy here comes Richard petty. He leads Walter by five Carlex five more links back to HA point race traffic Waltrip closes, but petty is up. There caution is on the race track. And it will be a battle back to the start finish line traffic. Walter product right behind petty AJ four right there. They looked at the high side they want. Hi, Scott, Richard Briggs four, Richard Texier outside. He's got Darrell Walter plus behind to carlin's rock, the J Foyt. Richard takes the trial this company founded trait now here, they come to the stripe. Richard Petty's SDP will be a fifth dive to the inside petty almost put him off in the grass and Richard petty will win the Daytona five hundred the petty crew jumping up and down on pit road. Congratulating each other. This Daytona five hundred. And is headed all Donnie, Allison kale. Yarborough crash in turn three on that. Final lap. The nineteen Seventy-nine Daytona five hundred history. And ladies and gentlemen. The winner is Richard petty Richard petty and the S T P Oldsmobile is coming down. Remember, the reports here the wire services yet late last evening. They were saying that doctors recommended that Richard petty forego the Daytona five hundred and looked to Richmond Virginia to return to the racing action after that ulcer operation, but he has brought the car down onto pit road. And it is being just mobbed by the SDP racing team a great two weeks for the petty clan. Jackie over at turn three. We interrupt for a moment kale. Donnie, both out of the cars. Bobby Allison is brought his car down. There. A furious discussion taking place just down below the banks of turn number three. And now, we appears we may have a fistfight we see driver's helmets faith. The officials trying to jump in there and separate them as tempers have really flared after this amazing. Incident on the final lap coming into turn number three. They can they battle on the ground at this time, and we can't see as others come running into surrounded. Try to separate those drivers. Meanwhile, it's very jubilant crew that is heading to victory lane. We'll be talking to them shortly. But first from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company back here at Daytona International Speedway. Barney hall this nineteen Seventy-nine Daytona five hundred is definitely had something for everyone. Well, we thought the finish in the time that Richard petty and David Pearson went into the wall and Pearson. Limped across the line was just the ultimate in a Finnish today is a heart thumper had just stopped everybody. It's left everybody. Limped kind of like that same finish. Who would've thought when we played that repeat of the nineteen seventy six finish between petty and Pearson that we would see its surface. Once again, this time the name's Allison and Yarborough standing by in victory lane as the Marin broadcasting correspondent Joe alloy. Joe there's no way at all that we can possibly get to Richard petty is just mass confusion. The family is fighting to get to him. And of course, he's talking to all of them. He's getting congratulations. We do have with us his chief crewmen daily Linneman. They what was the situation. Did you ever feel that you know, this was going to happen? Well, we you know, all the lucky to win the race. I no question about that. But we've been awful Luggy for unlucky for a year. So we'll just have gotten it to as it comes. We missed a draft on that lies pet Saban really hard as just four we pay the car come in. And and it hurt us on our pitstop. And if they hadn't erect, of course, we don't you know, where to run third, but but you just take them educate them we've been unlucky. And and we was lugging today. So we won the right? So what can you say day? What was the situation? How did you find out that Donnie and kale had wrecked? Well, we have radios, you know, there's radios PS, the the broadcasters and stuff like that. And it so happened that we was in the middle two or three wrecks today. And. And when rich got two white flag. And and just as he went outside of me. They said they would a wreck, and I told him he had to run through it. You know? And I don't know where it was only rice Drakkar. What were you able to talk to Richard own to way? Only thing I told him do was go that's all Dale Inman had time to do. We'll have to cut away from here for just a few moments because it is much confusion, but we will be back with Daytona five hundred winner, Richard petty in just a moment will the good is headache award. Winner voted overwhelmingly to buddy Baker here this afternoon to the Daytona five hundred and I'm sure Baker deserved it. He had high hopes of pulling out his first they told a five hundred win. It didn't work that way. We pause now for station identification back here at Daytona International Speedway. Let's recap for you that final lap which brought Richard petty into victory lane. Let's go to Mike joy. I almost sense. This kind of finished for the five hundred coming out of turn to on the final AP kailua Yara was perfectly aligned behind. Donnie, Allison to do what he had done three times before to lap himself run down the backstretch move to the inside draft. By Alison and take the victory at midway down. The backstretch. Donnie, Allison saw Yarborough move to the inside. Donnie, also came down to the inside Yarborough ran out of asphalt kicking dirt the to flail each other toward turn number three as they came down through that we wondered if they were even going to be able to make it back out to the racetrack. Once they got off in the grass because it had been so wet in earlier this afternoon, we had seen those two drivers along with Bobby Allison up and turn to taking that wild Harry Reid for several hundred feet. But this time they got back to the asphalt. They were out of control as they move toward our vantage point, they slid sideways up into the asphalt. Neither driver backing off an inch kale underneath and Donny on the outside. And they just drove it straight up into the wall in turn three. There was a huge ball of fire is they made that grinding contact. They skated back down off to the low side of the racetrack in it was just a matter of seconds, then before heading Waltrip in fort came flashing through cautiously. But still no one that this was the race. And as it turns out. Who was Richard? Who got the checker we have Richard petty Willis now in the winter circuit Richard the doctor's name pitcher together. The doctor advised against you even racing the day. The doctor told you not to race. And yet this week your son. His worst won his first major race. And today you come from a long dry streak of over a year. What's the feeling is? Unreal. You know what I mean for anybody to to win a race? Like just like what we want. You know, we really wasn't that competitive stayed right in the thick of it. But we couldn't lead. And then we got two breaks out there at last and one race. And you know, then Kyle won the race last week. I ever sit down by scoring one race. And you know, just essentially, oh, it's been unreal. All week. And you know, we really been good running that good. We've been worried about it. But I think everybody knew that if we work hard enough long enough we'd get to right breaks and we'd win. And that's what when did you realize? There was a chance to win that. There was trouble in front of you. When I say what happened when we come off with number two corner. Darryl and Maceo up in fort was based racing at that time for third place. And I looked looked ahead. And I seen the cautioned not hot deal for radio prevail to pan out where the caution was because it was like coming up before I didn't want to drive in black and he said come on come on. And when I got just as I start in third corner. I could see that it was number one number two car, you know, kale in and Alison in, you know, my heart went, right? Luma problem ahead Emiko. I said well, the Moran for the plague and here comes eighty eight you know, in eight eight run run a whole lot better. Now was he just was lucky to rent second. The only person that could be any prouder today would be your father the man who started all this. What about the situation you've had two winters this week? It just really exciting. I I'm real pleased with the competition they done and our good man upstairs who was with us just a little bit the voice of Lee petty. We'll turn it back to radio control for today's report. Here's Jacka route. Well, veteran Winston Cup Grand National driver. Darrell Waltrip of Franklin Tennessee capitalized upon the misfortune of Dale Earnhardt and the whims of mother nature to capture the nineteen Seventy-nine edition of the Daytona sportsman three hundred here yesterday at Daytona International Speedway. It looked as if Waltrip and Earnhardt would run right down to the wire locked together until a right rear tire went down earnhardt's, Austrian racing Monte Carlo. And then several minutes later while the race was under caution. The skies opened up for the second time necessitating the second red flag situation of the day in eventually the official conclusion of the race in victory lane. However, Darrell Waltrip readily agreed to take the win. No matter how it happened to be served up finishing second with Sterling Marlin in the Cunningham. Kelly Chevrolet with Ray Hendrick's surviving for third. Sam summers was fourth in j d mcduffie took the fifth position. There was a terrible seven car mealy on the fourth lap of the sportsman three hundred and we'll take a detailed look at what happened after this. Message this year sportsman three hundred was marred by what many track observers say is one of the most spectacular crashes in recent memory here at Daytona International Speedway, and our turn correspondent for that day was Mike joy. And he was some thirty feet away from the action and filed this report a fiery seven car chain-reaction collision. Marred the running of yesterday's Daytona sportsman three hundred here Daytona International Speedway. Jack Ingram's Ford was running among the leaders when he apparently lost his engine down in the west banking of the speedway and dropped low on the racetrack. Intern turn number one, Freddie Smith Spartanburg, South Carolina following Ingram. Got oil and debris on his windshield. And Smith's car spun in turn number two veteran driver Joe Persson following Freddie. Smith knew that Smith's car would probably slide down the thirty one degree banking and persona tempted to put his car between Smith and the wall without success percents slammed into Freddie Smith at about one hundred seventy five miles an hour. Breaking the fuel pump on his machine which immediately caught fire Smith and Priscilla. Consulate some six hundred feet with Smith's car coming to rest just barely on the infield grass and persona and coming to a stop some three hundred feet down the backstretch in the low group of the race track. Del mar coward coming out of turn. Number two. Still at speed got caught up into Brie and his car lost control and slammed into percents while persona was stopped and coward was still going full tilt down the race track. The impact destroyed the rear end of personas car and tore open the fuel cell and the Murph for Soanes mercury was immediately engulfed in flames for some started unbuckle himself and climb out of the car. But heard the sounds of more crashing behind him so remained in the machine though. It was completely on fire. Huey town. Alabama driver red farmer had crashed to the infield and attempt to avoid the accident along with Jacksonville's, buddy. Biles byles car got up on its right side and slid that way, some four hundred feet before coming to rest on its wheels. Don Williams of Madison, Florida put his Chevrolet into the wall. Hard him of attempt to avoid the accident while. Dennis Bennett slotted along out of control hit cowards car and spun to a stop when it was over seven cars have been involved in four separate distinct crashes as a result of the chain reaction for Seoul was able to climb out of his car and run to safety once the crashing stop and received only minor burns drivers were taken to the care center treated and released with the exception of Don Williams who is now in Halifax hospital in critical condition in the intensive care unit. And that's the way it was yesterday in the sportsman three hundred taking a look at the rundown here for the Daytona five hundred Richard petty winning his one hundred eighty sixth career victory. It's been a long dry spell over forty four races. But the S T peels mobile is come home victorious finishing in second.
