"indycar" Discussed on NASCAR on NBC

"Booth isn't to just reel off stats at an alarming rate and tell people something they don't know about driver XYZ. It's more to comment on the driving and what we're seeing on track. But it was just for me to feel comfortable talking about the people that we were commentating on. So from a, like I said, big help from the stats people that put together all that information and then it's for me just pouring through it and trying to retain whatever I can. Obviously, you retain quite a bit. Because again, I thought the reviews were strong. Just curious, I'm not trying to break any news here, but obviously the IndyCar season ends a little bit before the NASCAR season and some people were asking if you might be back. Would you ever consider working in NASCAR race again this year in the future? Absolutely. Absolutely. You know, I'm a fan of the sport, like I said. And so anytime spending on a racetrack and getting to work with the great group at NBC, I'm all about it. So I don't know, you know, this weekend was kind of always tagged as one, to have a little bit of crossover just because of the nature of the weekend. If that means it leads to more in the future, that'd be great. If you have to do it. That's cool. That's cool. And talking about the crossover in general. This was year three of this concept at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Year one obviously, there were no crowds because of the pandemic. Year two, it was a little bit better last year. There was a little bit more intermingling. And then year three, things were fairly wide open, but what I found interesting is, and this might be scheduled related. I didn't see a lot of guys sticking around for Sunday. I saw Scott Dixon was hanging around Sunday to watch the Cup race, but talking to some of the other IndyCar guys like Rossi said he was going to be out on a Lake and God love him, obviously he's probably going to have to celebrate. So it didn't really need him to stick around the track to watch a Cup race after winning his first race in three years, but renus VK was saying he was going back home to Florida. IndyCar is in the middle of a really brutal stretch right now. So, but, you know, they had 60,000 people there. And I think it was slightly up from last year. So it seemed like from the fan side, it's really, really working even if maybe on the driver's side, we didn't see quite as much even as if we saw last year. What was your take, I guess, on all of that? Yeah, I think you nailed it. You know, I think right now the IndyCar group is just in the middle of such a tough stretch. We have another race next weekend. And the fact that we had a race on a Saturday and actually gave whether it was drivers, officials, crew people, whatever a Sunday off. They haven't had a lot of those since kind of March that I can certainly understand the desire to not spend it at a race track. Regardless of how cool the event was. And so yeah, I think that probably plays into it quite a bit. But I agree. I mean, I think I saw a tremendous amount of fans show up. It's always tough at Indianapolis because it's such a big facility. Sometimes, you know, visually it might not look the same from some of the high up shots or whatever. But yeah, when you actually count it out and condense that group, it's a pretty reasonable Sunday crowd. And I think the more we do this and kind of continue this tradition, the more it's going to grow. You know, and obviously the races are pretty exciting. The Indy car race was good. The Cup race was good. And so yeah, I can see as we just continue with the data equity, like we always talk about and make this more of a tradition. I think it'll just keep growing. I went down to spend some time in oval turn for road course turn one, those viewing mounds in particular was one big hill. The second stage of the Xfinity race, there were a friend you had been there since 7 in the morning on Saturday and he said that it was still a lot of people there at that point, but he said it was particularly packed during the IndyCar race. So it seems like it's gotten some traction and it's what received. Have you heard any feedback from fans? IndyCar fans who say that they've maybe been exposed and ask are and they like it? Yeah, I mean, nothing negative. You know, honestly, I really do think that motor sports fans or motor sports fans. And you might have your preferences here or there, but at the end of the day, racing is racing, right? And so to be able to go to a racetrack and buy a ticket for a weekend and get three of the top series in North America running all in the same time. It's a hard thing to do. So I think that's an appealing option for a lot of people. And as if you expose any car fans and NASCAR, they're going to find a team or a driver that they start to cheer for and then want to check in on and likewise, I think NASCAR fans tune in to see the Indy car race or who are on property, you know, probably met or heard of or watched a driver on track that impressed them. So I think all this sort of cross pollination is really good for the sport. Yeah, and we haven't heard yet schedules for next year, but it seems like the rumblings that we are hearing is it's going to be fairly similar in NASCAR and IndyCar and I'd expect to see them both back together on this weekend next year. But we have heard some IndyCar drivers say that they've run the IndyCar Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course a lot since the pandemic, you know, there was 2020 when I seemed like I think they ran their three or four times. Do you think there's ever an opportunity maybe to take the concept elsewhere? Do you think if they could do that? Is that something maybe IndyCar now scars should look at? Absolutely. I mean, I think honestly because IndyCar does already race at the road course going back there, even though it is several months later, it takes some of it away if I'm honest. I think a double header at another track would probably be even more successful to be totally honest. So I would love to see whether it was an oval, sorry about the noise. I think this experiment has proved there's an appetite for it. And other places might be even more receptive to it. Are those your dogs in the background? Yeah, they're pun at the door. Did you go get them real quick? Okay. You know what? Let me just let me just remove the bells. Actually. Talk about that. All right, no problem at all. Yeah, it wouldn't be a podcast taping with you if there wasn't some sort of cool interview. That's true. Of course, your dog or your home. So this is great. Again, like we were saying

Jeff thanks a lot it's It's really a pleasure to be here. Great talking with you and look forward to our discussion today so before we dive into your cloud journey. I'd like you to share your background and some about the unique perspective that you bring to our conversation today. That sounds good as you know. It is varied so hopefully the audience will be able to follow but i actually started my career in banking graduated from ball state university and for the next ten years. Really dedicate myself to banking with an emphasis on commercial banking working with businesses on basically how to finance and manages our companies as appropriate But that led to a desire to move into technology because of some companies. I really became good friends with at the end of the day. So i left banking one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and went to work for local indianapolis software company called baker hill which ironically sold software to banks Which was a good entry through me to continue my my professional sales career but also step into the world of technology and so i spent a few years with them. We were acquired by a company called experience. You may have heard of them and stayed with them for about another five years. But then i started to get a little itchy if you will to do something kind of crazy and so i actually went and worked in indycar motor sports for a couple of years. Were very fortunate enough to be executive vice president of operations for panther racing. I say that because our sponsor was the national guard in just the spent a couple of years working with the minimum of the national guard was just such a privilege. It was so far from what i was doing that. It was just a one and refreshing but yet just a little bit of a payback to our men and women of the armed of the armed services but from there. I really did not like being away from home. One hundred eighty two hundred days a year to get back into technology. Did so an. And that's actually wearing you. And i met you were at cio of goodwill. And i was your lackey. Sales rep for a couple of years. Our lacking sales but worked at another local company called blue lock where we focused on infrastructure as a service disaster recovery as a service in obviously eventually was acquired in work there for about six years which actually then led me to where i'm at today in. That is the managing director of money tree. Managing a saz company infants ac and we are owned by accu chek in other indian owned company that provides trust accounting software and i basically manage the business unit For money tree underneath accu.

You know pre-race. Although i did miss the fans now being there there still was just a great energy To be standing there knowing. I was getting ready to start This just amazing event. You know. I've never had the honor to start in this race before so a lot of really cool emotions and memories and thoughts at all. Never forget pine now jimmy during that first step behind the wheel was et more. Making sure that you didn't wreck the race car. And kind of keep yourself in contention for the rest of the team. Sure you don't wanna be the one to break the toy so to To miss some of the carnage. There were a few close calls. That i had ellen pico. Some some kind of two or three white off. The king and was spinning came back up on the track and turn five right in front of us. That one really got my attention because the dirt and dust was in the air and i couldn't see and pick the right lane and was able to squeak thyself certainly a lot of nerves to deliver the car in one piece and i'm so happy to have that out of the way can go rest and just kind of fall into the rhythm of what this race needs.

Daily - Jimmie Johnson had a rough 2020 Cup Season

"For jimmy johnson. Let's just say he had a ton of obstacles in his last full time season. In nascar you get into the year and oftentimes times. They're things that disappoint your stress. You out in a negative way. And i haven't made it that far into the season to encounter any of that But last year was a really intense year. You know had very high expectations for myself The year didn't go as planned obviously Having my cova positive covid nineteen tests and missing the brickyard and missing the playoffs. You know there is a lot of negative stress on me during all of that so it can't come back at you know. This is motor torn. I do do recognize that but last year at least you know the middle part of the year Into the start of the playoffs you know it was an uncomfortable pressure. A different type of pressure. That experience too often jimmy johnson compares the cars. He's driven in the rolex. Twenty four nascar and indycar from the dp. The dpi is the car does move around in the corner. You do lack rip off and have to drive the and there's a big window to slip and slide in that that's much more in line with my nascar days. I'm finding in the indycar that that window to slide. Things around is so narrow and i've i've looped it on corner exit multiple times now a result so i i feel like i'm able to once i get into the turn and leave the corner in a dpi car or i'm still on edge in the indycar.

"Okay folks. This should be fun. We've got a famous racing driver on the show alexander rossi's in the house. This dude races indycar. He races prototypes. He's had a hand in bathurst sat. Hand formula one. He sat a hand off road. And he's telling us stories about all of it. Alexander rossi is on the smug tire podcast. It's from indiana alexander. Rossi is in the house or virtually. What's up man not much. Thanks for having me your welcome. Thank you for dive bombing in zach. Let's get him back. Because i don't wanna look at me. The audience wants to see alex and yet there is with a beautifully soft zoom background approp- appropriate for working from home. Welcome thank you. I'm i'm happy to be here. Happy that in this day and age we can still at face to face contact. Bertish again which i would have bought zoom stock Year ago a year ago the were skype was verb skype. Nothing anymore but that was like skype was the was kleenex a year ago. Where do they go. I mean has anyone dropped the ball harder than skype zooms product. Really that much better though. I think i think we'll we're not we don't use zoom we're using switzer cast but zoom. I think zack zoom the first one to do the the multiple boxes. Zillow allow you to do group chatting. Can you do that on skype Skype followed zoom and skype is far worse. It's quite bad okay. I guess that's that's be it was all about all about the group chat presume I just want to start with like what the hell is it. Like to be a racing driver in the last twelve months like is it. Weird is it. It's less cool than it was fourteen months ago. Just it's it's amazing. How much the fans. I mean to any sport but yeah to racing. You know there's because we don't really see them in the middle of race because you're in a car and it's not a stadium type sport so much of the pre event build up. An energy is all fan related. So that goes away. You're kind of like on the grid about to do this race when it's kind of like cool. This is weird. I feel your practice or something's a practice race. Shouldn't something like that. Because you're right. Show the driver introductions and the fireworks and the parade lap and all that sort of thing and when that goes away. You're just getting in your car and driving around in circles to people have they done. Did they have they tried to do. I mean look. Obviously everyone's doing doing their best to make make it work and keep keep people employed and keep people entertained and you know from drivers to crew people to whoever tv people and whatnot. Have they tried to do anything. That was really a good faith effort to take something that was formerly in person and and make it virtual where you're just like. Oh god this does not work. Yeah kind of and like it's a good segue like. I'm so thankful that we're able to get a season in the first place right. That was always a big concern. When this when this all kind of kicked off on march like are we going to raise his racing exists and all this stuff so it was a huge effort from the promoters in the series teams. All kind of finagle. Their way and make make a season happen but yeah the series tried a lot of different virtual kind of fan meet and greets in sponsor appearances. And it was. It was a necessary evil. Sure but i about the fact that. I just cannot wait for the day that you were back to in person attendance. Just because it's so it's so strange because sometimes like you have these these meet and greets but like people don't really wanna talk to you so you're just sitting there trying to engage audience. That doesn't have anything to ask. And you're like well. I have this for launch. Today i grew up in california. And it's just it's very strange. You lose that human to human interaction but nonetheless we're all adapting. It's all good. It's a it's a very much a first world problem and on unhappy to to start the season here next weekend.

"Race. That's normally on Memorial Day to be paying tribute to one of the Great American heroes of our time so to me is a little disheartening. And I wish they would just see see for what it is which is nice tribute. It's a shame that people have to. I don't know act the way they're acting about it. I I would have taken it nicely but obviously the hair clearly not ya I if you read the comments on his tweet. I'm pretty sure it was just her tweeting on his account but nobody really agreed with her. And I didn't. I didn't spend hours reading twitter comments. Unfortunately but I don't not not. Many people really agreed with with what he or his wife were saying. So I'll just leave it at that. Yeah it was. It was very silly in a very unfortunate thing. I hope it doesn't hangover. Connor dailies head like a lot of past unfortunate incidents have seemed to hang over his head in the past couple years. Yeah and sorry I lost my was at the end of mine but Yeah and with the whole thing is they're also like mad at Connor for some reason as if I'm pretty sure most of the time the driver doesn't really GonNa say as far as what liberty that are running it's kind up to the team sponsors so I'll understand why they're mad at Connor but anyways moving on yeah. I didn't see the air force Sent out a multiparty tweet and basically to sum it up without being too harsh they kind of said to shove it and they were gonNA use it because they owned it. So I- pitfall is kind of random formula e. Has Some interesting rules when it comes to weight specifications on the car and driver including helmets and seats and everything else. It's all included in back in the day. That was kind of the norm. I guess so to speak but now it's kind of gotten away from that because people have realized that forcing the drivers to regulate their way in order to gain advantage advantages. Clearly not a healthy thing to do. These are world. Class Athletes But Formula One is our. I'm sorry formula. E. is still doing this and there was an article that cannot this week that basically one of the drivers saying he's literally constantly sick because he is trying to keep underweight on to gain an advantage in instead of gaining weight and she's actually becoming very sick because of it so I'm just kind of shaming formula e. for not thinking about health of their drivers when they're talking about weight distribution. I think that there should be a very easy way to fix this in the future. Hopefully I know. They are working on some rules for next year. That make it a little bit better but still not a ton I think drivers can add. It's ten kilograms or something next year in. It really doesn't affect them but that's really not that much in the grand scheme of things they need to make it so that the driver's way really doesn't matter in my opinion and I agree and it was kind of cool. See Marcus Ericsson. Share his side of it. Because I don't think a lot of people will know that side of the sport and I'm not an expert on the manner. But he was saying that in the world of INDYCAR. It's much better. So that's good news for him. And hopefully his lifestyle is much more conducive to what he wants rather than trying to maintain a certain way like he had to do inform. Yeah I mean some of those. I did see. That was good for Marcus for speaking up. But some of the formula you guys if you look at their social media Literally like they're like the size of a tree branch. They're so skinny so I can't imagine that being healthy especially if you're getting sick on our race weekend just to because you're trying to maintain a certain way s not healthy in the long run. There's can be serious complications from that. So very very good find. They're just. I didn't see that until after you talked about it the other day. I hope that they Looking to changing because obviously forcing driver to be underweight is is not okay agreed so I think that wraps it up this week and guys because Texas is now two weeks away from the time. You are listening to this. Maybe a little bit more than two two weeks in a day so that means next week will be our season. Reprieve you episode. Obviously the schedule might still change slightly so we might have to do a third preview at some point but we are going to have some fun with. This will will rehash some of the old questions that we had a couple of months ago. Probably come up with some new ones and doing do a new two thousand twenty preview for what we have ahead of us in the INDYCAR world. So unless there's anything else and I'm getting a no from both you guys. Just go ahead and sign us off. Guys Keep Your I..

"indycar" Discussed on Pit Lane Parley

"Welcome to another episode of Pit Lane. Parlay. I am your host. Mike Joke Jess and Matt are joining me this evening. Guys how are we good better than you? I think I am in a great mood. It is late on Tuesday evening and I have a ton of energy. So let's dive right into it okay. Fine guys racing came back this past weekend. I know it wasn't Indycar but we'll have to deal with that. I had NASCAR. It came back. They race at Darlington Sunday and there are also racing again tomorrow night. Yes tomorrow night on prime time I think. Isn't it like seven thirty or something? I can't remember anyways. So Kevin Harvick one on Sunday with sound strict social distancing rules including rules about pitting how they did that keeping crews and drivers and TV personnel excetera. All separated what would you guys think how did you. How did you guys take to it? Did you get a chance to watch any of it? Strictly speaking on what they did procedurally between them and the German Bundesliga and a couple other kind of major sports are starting to open back up just refreshing to see and you know as far as what. Nascar did you know. I think what they did in the pit road what they did praise what they did with the commentary team etc. A lot of people wearing masks. I thought that was really safe. I think they're kind of just proving to people that we can do this if we're just responsible about it and so. I'm excited to see if indycar follows suit and a similar sort of measures As far as the race itself I gave it thirty laps and gave up. 'cause I was horrendously board but I know I saw some people out there enjoying it. It's just I tried. But it's not for me. Yeah on the safety measures. I think they did an excellent job from the media to the teams to everybody at the track. They did a really really good job there but the actual race. I made it to two thirds of the way through competition cautions so I know five more laps than map and they were trying to explain the rules of the competition. Caution during the competition caution and I realized I had no idea what they were talking about similar to my pitfall last week. And that's when I decided I've had enough I it's I didn't like met just not really for me I. I'm sure I hope people enjoyed it but I I kind of didn't really watch the rest of it so I didn't watch all of it. I won't lie. I watched I dunno forty lack at the beginning and then went. Did something in the end came back and watch ten more labs and then. When did something came back and watched a couple of laps? I didn't see the end even so I I know people were saying it was kind of snooze fest. At the end I agree with the getting totally confused on what the rules were with the caution periods but as far as the safety stuff went. I thought they did a good job. Keeping people separated. I think they did goodbye. All you know. Trying to wear masks and Keep distance between everybody so I liked that the one thing that I thought might have been a little bit of overkill. Was the leading twenty car groups pit at a time instead of letting everyone pitted at the same time. I thought that kind of defeats the purpose. Because then you have all the crew out there anyways. Because if they're pingelap lapsed back to back they still are going to have to have the crew out there. They can't like come from the garage in one lap. It just doesn't work so I thought that was a little bit but hey as long as it works. That's all that really matters. I'm just glad that racing is starting to come back. Yes agreed I will probably tune in for maybe the end of the race tomorrow which it up see if I can see something exciting but anyway we'll move onto some indycar stuff here unfortunately Toronto which was scheduled to be the second weekend in July. If I'm not mistaken has for now been postponed because the city of Toronto banned gatherings of over two hundred and fifty people through the end of July. It hasn't officially been canceled because Green. Savary promotions the city and. Indycar working for a day later in the year but we will have to wait and see on that one. Is Anybody Really surprised by this decision and be? Do you think we will be heading to Toronto at some point later this year? I FOR ONE AM NOT SURPRISED. I mean I think it was just today that the travel restrictions just got extended also through the end of June so I was more watching that than what the city of Toronto was doing. But I think it's just you know is a little bit too hopeful to be able to pull it off that quick. On as far as do I see it happening sometime later? Honestly no because it gets colder there much sooner than here and it just with the timeframe of everything going forward. We're already pretty cramped in that last summer. Heatwave I guess SORTA say so. I think that it would be very difficult to squeeze it in place not surprised at all and I honestly don't see it coming back and you think about it with St Course to need to ample time to build the track got concrete blocks fences rumble strips. You got the law that you need to fix up so I am not entirely sure that this will be back on the schedule in twenty twenty unfortunately and I really hope that they can get their ducks in a row to make sure that the event doesn't go away permanently for next year because it is a really good track of really race with some awesome fans. Yeah I'm I'm not surprised. I Know Justin. I had talked about it a few times that the border being shutdown was definitely going to have to hinder the chances of the indycar race happening in July. But I am definitely bombed i. I love going to Toronto every year so I hope it's back on the schedule but I think just is pretty much spot on there. I don't know if there's really a spot for it unless something else gets cancelled or who knows. Crazier things have happened. Especially this year so we could be up for some more changes who who are so we will move onto the next bit of sort of Indycar news hear more talk about Ferrari and indycar speculation is I guess. Increasing that Ferrari will be coming to indy-car in twenty twenty two with the F. One budget cuts and the team looking to move around some money in and make use so that Adam stirring actually spoke with mark. Miles that He that Mark Miles met with both Lamborghini. And Ferrari. I think last summer about joining indycar wishes that pretty interesting little note there. That mark has been traveling. The world Talking to other partner so any thoughts do we actually think there's a chance of Ferrari going to indycar. Yeah I'll be positive. I think a repeated kind of analysis and more and more articles coming out about it only signals positive things and the team principal of Ferrari. Whose name escapes me. Hasn't really come out and said No. And I think another positive thing that I think our friend Eric Smith had pointed out was normally Ferrari is unhappy and one and just threatens to quit and would say something like we're going indy-car unless he changed this but this time it seems like you know hey were willing to accept the budget cuts. We're going to stay on and we're going to build an INDYCAR program said to me that's really awesome and then Lamborghini came out of left field. I don't know how that would work but I did. Tell my wife that if I could like own a car one day if I ever won the lottery whatever the first thing I would buy for my car would be Lamborghini. Be really sick to see. She probably said something similar to my wife would say and said okay. He keep juryman any way. Does she said retirement gift? Maybe maybe okay anyway. I like what five years now? Wow I'm GONNA I'M GONNA LEGESSE COCA. Some said if yours is five years way that means minds. Like two and a half. No no we gotta make him feel not you. Hey I would be totally stoked to finally had two and a half more years to work. So I'm just saying yet. No as I have my thoughts throw Ari coming up were. Do I think it's going to happen? I just pretty much saying that the whole time to anybody who would listen. 'cause I've had several friends asked me about it. I'm like Nah Nope don't see it happening. I mean it would be really neat to see but I just. I don't know maybe if they start having some more talks with Mark Miles and Roger. Penske or something but right now I assume not really seeing it in as far as buying Lamborghini. Why would you WANNA souped up? Ford hang.

"indycar" Discussed on Pit Lane Parley

"Mean this is an interesting thing I mean I think it would have been really cool to to see how it played out. Do I think that it's still possible. I think you've got a whole lot harder. Just without the travel restrictions and everything else that kind of puts a damper on things in also NASCAR's schedule is now absolutely insane us. So Jimmy Johnson's GonNa find it more difficult unfortunately to get there so that kind of knocks out all three. But if I had to pick one that I think would be the most fun to watch. I'M GONNA GO Jenson Button. 'cause it's been a minute and who knows like. I just think it'd be interesting to see what he would bring to the To the fray yes It's hard to determine what exactly is going to happen if they do a third entry this the season just 'cause don't really have a concrete like schedule we don't know who can go. Where and when things like that so I agree with Justin that one and I have no shame in agreeing with just on the Jenson Button. Pick as well just because I mean if you had if you didn't know he's not GonNa do ovals because he hasn't said that about eight different times and we haven't reported on that like thirty different times in the INDYCAR world just if you didn't know Jenson Button's not gonNa Rentals but the fact that he's interested in doing road courses to me is super cool and to see him at a place road America. I think he would thoroughly enjoy that type attracts so I see a former Formula One champion in any car. For the first time I think would be really cool. Yeah the Jenson Button. One definitely caught me off guard and honestly. I skimmed the article didn't read it closely so when we put together our rundown for the week and I saw Jen Jensen's name in there. I thought you were making it up and honestly I had to go back and reread it. But I'm not. I can't agree with you guys. I do agree with Jesse. It's GonNa be really hard. The NASCAR racing like eighty seven times a week. And you're the guys coming from Europe really hard. So do I think it's possible? Sure I mean nothing is impossible if Jenson button was set to race at Road America but out of the three who is the most exciting just to not agree. I'm going to go with Jimmy Johnson. He seems like such a cool guy. I'd love to get a chance to to chat with him at some point so I will go Jimmy Johnson there. Well I mean it would be fun to see all three of them. It's Shane that this is all happened. But maybe we'll get to see him all next year. I mean who knows who knows what's GonNa Happen. I think everything is still so up in the air that anything is a possibility. At this point I agree all right so I am going to throw out just in real quick other news. That's been out. I think all within the last week or week and a half so per Marshall Pruitt at racer. Indy-car is gonNA limit the on site staff for races when they do resume so it's going to be limited to twenty people in that's going to help lament the cost in also exposure p w power systems and Moore Out of sport have can come on. Board with Vassar Sullivan. Racing for a partnership for four races. Adams is reporting. The indy-car is trying to lower sanctioning fees and work with Texas that the Texas race can take place and then lastly Nascar is going back racing on May seventeenth with several races in the first two weeks. I think it's like seven or something. I can't remember the exact schedule I've seen it. They are going to have no fans and also a limited crew there. So what do you guys think about all this so nascar to me? I'm only gonNA touch onto these With the NASCAR ONE I definitely think the rule is going to be watching. As far as how they do things are I can tell with the major sports leagues of the world. The only other one that I know of. That's coming in May as potentially the Bundesliga German soccer league so I was really curious to see how those to kind of do things and see how they implement their strategies and whatnot. So we'll be watching that and the other one. I'm GonNa Touch on the Adam Stern report with Texas in the sanctioning being lowered to me that given the circumstances seems like a positive sign makes. It seem like that they're getting really close to kind of finalizing that they're actually going to be a race hopefully without fans just for safety reasons so to me makes it seem like Texas in June is a very real possibility. Yeah I definitely hope you're right on that one. I really don't know what to think if it's possible but like you said it's definitely a good step in the right direction and I think Nascar races like seven times in the first two weeks or some ten days. I don't know it's insane. It's a lot but yet I think Tony Non Or Alex. Rossi said it on the Friday media call and don't remember who said it but have Roger Penske own NASCAR team and also be in charge of Indycar will give indycar really good insight as to what is Nascar doing right. What IS NASCAR doing wrong? Can we do this? How can we do this? So we already trust roger in Ann Rogers kind of getting a firsthand. Look in the sports world and motorsports world on how this is done so I think we'll all be watching him. Deathly curious to see how it it unfolds. I did forget one thing to put it into the run down here but I had talked to you mike about. Nhra has also come out I think it was yesterday originally. They came out a couple of weeks ago and said they would start a racing again shortly in that they would have fans at the tracks in basically it was given go on like nothing had ever happened. A have revised that as of yesterday. They are not going to start racing again until August at this point. They have postponed all June and July dates. They are going to try to start in August in run sixteen more races so that they get their eighteen rights schedule. And so just another one. I I don't know who is right. I don't know that there is a right and a wrong in this particular situation. It's it's a lot of moving parts but I think that it's given everything that's going on with travel restrictions and everything else. It's not necessarily a bad idea to to kinda postponed things for a little bit longer and see how everything shakes out. So that's a an interesting take. Let's see who does a better NASCAR. Nhra because it's like two opposites in the way that they're doing things. That's a good point and I forgot that you mentioned that to me earlier today but I guess we will wait and see. I don't know if there's one approach that one hundred percent right may be indycar. Takes a little bit of both. Because I'm sure my answer to my question is probably not but it should be very interesting over the next. I don't know month how this all starts to unfold. Yeah it's GonNa make for some good Ten years from now when we look back at this time it's going to be interesting to kind of dissect and remember of what happened and who did what and things like that so We're GONNA look back at this time indefinitely. Study it for years for sure more positive. Note the Xbox League for the pit Lane Parlay Grand Prix League on F one's nineteen nineteen finished the eighth round at France yesterday. Jake neely. My team did win the race followed by team pit lane. Member Christian didn't have ski. And then Brad James with his first career podium finishing third I finished fourth I unfortunately missed a strategy call by two laps with the rain. So that was a bummer. But I'm still happy because I absolutely cannot stand. France hate it so next races at Austria? Feeling a little better about that one for sure and then. Mike do you Wanna go ahead and touch on your two leagues So the playstation crew had a lot of fun at Monaco last week and by a lot of fun. I mean Michael Good. I was the only one who finished the race. And all three of us in terms of data lighting and drew and a couple of other guys all crashed out so and then we had our second endurance race. Sunday night again. Joe Haines one. By a very large margin I came in towards the rear of the field. Because that's really what I'm good at is spinning out and forgetting to break in corner. This is all I think Matt made a joke on my twitter and then I I forgot to break. Don't blame it on me. All I'm blaming on one hundred percent blame. You are a one hundred percent of driver. We reiver's leases for days. Well on that note I will keep a positive. It was a lot fun. I really am enjoying the banter back and forth in the races in twitter chats and whatnot talking about the game so with that will move onto a quick team. Pit Lane Shoutout here. Sco TO XBOX race winner. Jake neely Stephen Clarke and Keith. Tyron all right. I got the facts game this week which we still have not come up with a creative name force or still calling it. The facts scam I- unilaterally decided to expand it to the last decade without telling these guys so jokes on them unilaterally means. I don't need your approval there for you. Don't get too boomy we. We can still be you okay. All right you ready to go ahead and talk in the first person on this one. I am a Canadian. I have raced in Indycar for Milan. And Nascar. An champion of two of those three series. Schofield now yeah. What year did he won the Indycar Championship? I don't know when the Formula One championship also don't know what year did you last. Start RACE IN INDYCAR. Six or seven years ago You are technically correct sex twenty fourteen. Okay so good job. Did you know that one? I I wanted to give you a chance. But I wasn't sure based on your face if you were ready to sir ask if I shared a birthday with him. But you when you answered it you answered. The question is now because I do share a birthday with a Canadian driver who raced indycar and Nascar but not a foreign I Marty Roth negative. Isn't it now Mardi Rod? But I don't know Marty for day Google. It like the worst day of the year. It'd probably that day Marty. Roth was born on December fifteenth. That sounds like a sad day. That's terrible so mean what did he do to you. He was a nice guy and he was a good entry into the field. When the IRA was in his down days he was very slow and most often in people's ways that was definitely meaning. Grunter is Mellon Sunday. I was slow. I mean going to crash your twitched comments and just start calling me. Marty Roth repeatedly. That's fair. I will enjoy it. We will wrap it up our last week of three-star the week before we get back to it falling people and making fun of whatever stilling goes on in the motor sports world. Like normal ness we're going to. We're going to pretend things are getting back to normal now so with that being said.

"indycar" Discussed on Pit Lane Parley

"You. These Thursday or Friday practices on twitch. It was phenomenal. Drivers were just giving jabs at each other left and right and there were so many things that I believe on the Friday session. The head steward. Greg actually disabled drivers chat. Which was kind of a bummer. 'cause that's one of the best parts about this practice races but it just got crazy but it was insane and then the race on. Saturday was pretty calm in in cool up until about the last ten laps to recaps on the most dramatic moments Landau. Norris was in the race because he won the circle of America so he automatically got an entry into the race and he made it three wide in the short chute between turns into on the inside. Gramajo was in the Middle Middle and Simon pageant was on the outside and unfortunately because there were three wide into turn Suu pageant Kinda got caught out and hit the wall with a couple of weeks ago Padua who had now wrecked and pitted came out and decided that he was going to quote unquote slowdown landowners and on the exit of turn for about three or four laps to go. Norris actually ran into the back of him because Padgett was going. So slow wrecking both of them and Norris was in the lead at that point. We're GONNA take a quick pause here and I wanted to see if Mike had any thoughts that portion of the drama up to that point man I. I am very glad this six weeks is over. Let me start there but yeah listen it happened. I didn't really think it was a huge deal. Mando Kinda made a mistake. Passionate made a mistake to and. Kinda should have just ended there. Obviously social media had a field day with it which is why. I've ignored social media for the last two days pulling a strategy and just kind of avoiding it has been really good so I'll leave it there and we'll continue on. I don't know if you have any thoughts there but we'll keep going. Yes first of all folks at home. I'm not singling out just saved a lot of time and a lot of effort by not paying attention because social media on Saturday was ridiculous. So shout out the jess. She's kind of like the smartest one of the three of us. My thoughts on it is and I was kind of explaining this to the Pill in Grand Prix career last night. An xbox is that Landau doesn't understand Indianapolis in real life. Sure he's had a lot of practice with it on. Ira Sing but a lot of the INDYCAR guys take what they in real-life and apply it to I racing as well and so any indycar driver who raced at Indianapolis knows that making it three. Why the short story is never a good idea. And that's not something you can actually do realize Landau being the video game guy understands that. Yeah I have fresh tires. Yeah I could pull it off and do it not realizing that you're completely leaving the guy the outside lane hanging out to dry. So I get a patent is coming from and being frustrated had Landau and Stephan. Wilson pointed this out on twitter. Had Landau just come on the Mike and said Hey my bad. That was my fault. Sorry I didn't know that should made it three wide. Or maybe I should give you more features. You know played it off as like racing instant. Whatever I think pageant has been cool with that however that doesn't excuse what pageant. Oh did in my opinion so I think there has kind of a little bit of fault in both areas there's going to take a neutral stance on that. I will say that. The drama that ensued with Lantos fans on twitter was really annoying. I had a lot of mentions from said fans. And it's Kinda irritating but that wasn't the end of the drama because then we got to the final lap. The last half of the lab was pretty crazy on the final lap. Marcus Ericsson made a great three wide pass to take the lead and going into turn four. He still had the advantage. However paddle awards stuck his nose in in the entry of turn for Ericsson didn't really leave him too much room and they collided sending Eriksson to the wall. The lead to Oliver ask you so heading to the line Oliver. Ask US leading and Santino. Ferruccio is second and to be as neutral as possible will say that in for Ichi collided with ask you and ask you spun with fruit. She causing them both to crash coming to the line. Giving Scott McLaughlin the win and conor Daly finished second. That was neutrals like a beef. Mike thoughts on the second half the drama there. I'm really happy Conor. Daly finished second because if anybody deserved for a virtual podium after the six weeks of whatever you call the INDYCAR challenge. It's definitely conor Daly. He probably made a ton of fans over the last six weeks. So I'm that's my positive spin on everything that happened in the last part there the ask you thing it wasn't good. I'm just GONNA leave it at added and be as respectful as possible and say it was definitely not good so to kind of bring a a real world aspect into this just to kind of GET JESSICA. Take Jess Imagine. It's two thousand six. Imagine Sam Horace Juniors coming on the front stretch trying to pass. Marco Andretti for the win for the Indianapolis five hundred. If you're Marco Andretti do you intentionally wreck hornish? Jr. Coming to the start finish line of the two hundred lap of the NAPA five hundred. Lauded as you do not intentionally wreck Ben. All right we're just GONNA leave at that because that's kind of where I'm at I. I know people are saying it's just a game and I know people are saying that you know it's just. Ira saying like who cares. I don't agree with wrecking the leader coming to the line in any circumstance and I think it looked really bad. I think Oliver ask you while to be honest. Like he should have been contention for the win anyways because I think Ericsson Kinda got robbed but given the circumstances I think ask you still got the wrong end of the deal and Scott. Mclaughlin got really lucky. So I'm not too big of a fan of what I saw. I think the luckiest guy have all that other than McLaughlin was actually paddle award based on what happened with Padua. Oh and what happened with Richie Award? Kinda got out of that one looking pretty clean because I think he also wrecked Erickson pretty dirty a lot of frayed relationships coming out of this whole erasing ordeal. Mike I don't know if you have any general thoughts in the race or I know you had already said you're glad these six weeks or over if you have any thoughts about the season as a whole with the irs experience it made me appreciate INC video games just to unwind after a long day and not take it so seriously just ready to get back to real world racing boy am I so I don't know what T. K. said Friday but I probably would have agreed with it given what your synopsis was there Yeah I just totally ever it. Just it's just the some something along the lines of. If this was a real life we would have so many people in the hospital. Something something along those lines. Yeah I saw you know a couple pictures where they were launched like into be stratosphere literally so yeah. I cannot imagine what that would do in real life. Yeah I am I've slowly but surely got more sick of IRA sing as the season has come along. So I'm really looking forward to guys like hundred Alexander Rossi just kind of doing a random race for fun. Less of the organizers indycar crowd together because it seems to be having aware on the social media world yeah and before we recap our predictions and I just WanNa say I completely agree with you. Matt I have major respect for the guys that put a lot of time into Irish sing like the elite racing league in the Lionheart guys. They they work really hard at it but I have zero point zero percent interest of ever doing any sort of I- racing. Yeah I'm in the same boat. We I like my xbox. I think we have some fun. Things go in there but kind of a moot point near but we're going to go ahead and recap our predictions. Mike Respectfully Pick James Davison props to you although we had no idea with qualifying. Because why would you broadcast it? Davidson did qualify and he ended up finishing nineteenth because he was taking out by the I. Racing legend Scott Speed Willpower. I can't remember what his downfall was. He finished fourteenth. And then the guy with the great face at millions of dollars as conor Daly puts it Alexander Rossi finished twelfth. So technically the just just as the winner. But I'M GONNA go ahead and say that we were all losers because we didn't get a single driver in the top ten on that one but I do have to give credit for watching forty seven seconds of six racism probably having the best average finishing position out of the three of us as she watched. What the first thirty seconds of Michigan and like Yep. I'm out of here. I think so much revenue roughly winter. I hope everybody who was able to watch. It enjoyed it or if you didn't. Let's talk about real racing from now on so I up on our news docket. Today is an article from David. Mosher of motor sport. Talking about Arrow McLaren Schmidt Peterson that prior to the Kobe. Nineteen pandemic. They were planning a third entry for several races this year. Rotating between Jimmy Johnson Fernando Alonzo and Jenson Button Jenson. Button was picked to be racing at Road America. So two questions here. Do we think that they will still do something like this? Whenever we are able to get underway and of the three. Which is the most exciting or intriguing driver to you guys? I I mean this is an interesting thing I mean I think it would have been really cool to to see how it played out. Do I think that it's still possible..

Travel to Senegal and The Gambia

"Welcome the image traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about West Africa. I like to welcome to the show. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM. Who has come to talk to us about Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa? Brian Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you for having me. I know you were surprised that we had not previously done in episode of Amateur Traveler on this region and as we were talking about before we started recording. We don't get as many pitches but also there aren't as many travelers who tend to go to west Africa East Africa. Southern Africa tend to get a little more tourists in general. Why should someone go to that region before we focus in on Senegal? Gambia I think. West Africa's really vibrance several my friends. Who have been there for years in the Peace Corps? Said it's about the People? It's about the markets it's about the color it's about the way they treat you just the life that's on the streets of West Africa. I think we hear of animals. Safaris maybe eastern Southern Africa West. Africa's is really the beating hearts of the continents with some of the most populous countries in the fascinating region with lots of smaller countries grouped. In that you can visit In the whole region there will. We've chosen to talk about Senegal and the Gambia one. Because you've been there recently and we always try and focus on someplace. That wasn't a ten years ago trip. The you've been to all the countries in Africa. Yes four fifty four nations and Africa hats off to you. Thank you and people may be wondering why we're talking about the two of them. This is one of those very odd places where one country actually completely surrounds. The exactly the Gambia's inside of Senegal. So the Gumby has no other neighbors have Senegal to the North East. The South and the West is the ocean. So it's completely involved excellent. And why should someone go to Senegal Gambia? I think Senegal and the Gambia great introduction to Africa and especially to West Africa. They're safe countries. They're countries that are kind of a soft introduction. They're not quite as hard hitting some the other countries in west Africa. Very safe to visit for me. The the weather was very nice after coming from kind of more tropical and intense heat in the Sahara for example movement way across and the people. The people are very friendly. There's not vowed kind of lively music in the streets that you can listen to all the time and there is a decent number of Europeans between but a large French population. There's quite a few Lebanese. That live there a special indy car in the capital of Senegal. And it's it's very soft welcoming place that would not intimidate so I think most people when they think of Africa that would be a great place to start and by contrast. Then what you're saying is there's some of their neighbors. We're them might be a little more. You think twice about going because of poverty terrorism Civil war or disease. Yeah those those are the only reasons I can think of not to go to some of the areas over the last ten years at least in western Africa and I think the Transportation as well kind of infrastructure with having made my way of public transportation there are a lot of Africa can be extremely slow and the Senegal Gambia. Our little breath of fresh air to be able to get around quite a bit easier than the light of the countries in the region and I'm fascinated to hear about this. I have technically been indycar but really only in the airport. And they didn't let me off the plane so I really knew very little about the area. So what kind of itinerary would you recommend? I think that Senegal be the one that you'd want to spend more time in. The car has quite a bit to see in there quite a few beaches right there. Outside of the city I stayed in a neighborhood called walk. Tom Which is nicely placed next to the African Renaissance Monument which is the largest statue and all of Africa. That kind of looks down on the whole region there and Indycar and you can take a couple of really nice day trip south from the car so if you stayed there for two three or four days I think that would be an ideal amount of time to spend their most people like I went to a place called Goree Island which is very famous for being one of the biggest places that had slaves that were coming out to the Americas and you can learn a lot but the history. They're easy to walk around. There's a ferry that goes every couple hours to get there and place it almost everyone. The cousin Senegal visits during the first couple days sides stay for the car to three days with the city and the surrounding area and then a couple of days up to St Louis which is about four hours for five hours north by bus. Okay and you could spend a day or two. They're known for its famous. Saint Louis Arch known. Not that Saint. Louis Okay the other Saint Louis in Senegal. It takes a good six to eight hours going by bus. You could take a private car if you want. Or if you're on a tour to get down to the Gambia assume that's GONNA take up half or two thirds of a day and then I'd be down in Bonn Jewel and area right below it whether it's nice speeches and a monkey parking things for two to three days so I think you could easily piece together somewhere between eight and ten days which would be kind of a nice length of a visit between Senegal Gambia. Excellent so you started us into car and you mentioned going out to the island whose name I've already forgotten it's gory island heart ee. Eileen with just one of the biggest hubs for the slave trade and they have fairies that go out every couple hours and that's definitely Come a must do if you're in Dakar. I think almost anyone I've talked to has done not visit for half day or two thirds of the day and real easy to walk arounds. Thinks about a kilometre too long. And that's locals there with colorful art kids playing soccer in slave museums. That are there that you can visit as well and so I assume there's a fourth year which is where they keep the slaves locked up. Yes and what else are we going to do the two or three days in the car? How are we gonNA spend that you mentioned the monument and there's a couple of monuments there the country it's about ninety six percent Muslim and so there's several nice mosques to visit as well in the lot of fishermen that go out and I love think West Africa? One of the images of the coastal areas. Are these colorful fishing boats that you can see like dozens of guys sliding off into the water and then sliding back up with their catch from the day and there's a lot of seafood that they bring in so these real colorfully painted. Boats is one of the images that you'll see on the coast there in Indycar and their fishing from the there than rather than from okay and is there a place you would go to see that. There is a mosque called the mosque of the divinity which had a bunch of these colorful boats right next to it and it's right there in the car about five or ten minutes from where I was staying in the neighborhood of calm and I stayed AIRBNB. There's lots of airbnb options there for budget travelers and there's all different ranges of accommodation but there are inexpensive options for those looking for him as well and I stayed with a local man there and enjoyed always like state local people to give you all flavor of what it's like will what I usually find when we're talking about. Travelling in lesser developed areas of Africa is that we're talking about not an inexpensive flight to get in relatively expensive for the distance intra country flights inside of Africa. Compare for instance or a US but then really cheap food and really cheap housing. Is that right? Yeah that's true. And so that's the Pros and cons. I always way between local transport and the flights I think the flights between the Gambian cars forty minutes so in say but I just checked in it's still upwards of one hundred forty to one hundred eighty dollars for a forty minute one slight. It's not too bad for Africa standards. It can be a lot worse a lot worse or west African flights but bus. I WanNa say it was about eighteen dollars that took me there so you just have to pick and choose. What's worth more your your time or your money. Well and that is going to be an individual choice. Yeah another thing. A lot of people like to do is there's a pink lake there several of these in the world. There's one in Mexico unless Jerry I believe and there's one about Sarah outside of Dakar. That is is another kind of one of them. Must do things on the visit. That would take you maybe about a half day and so that is really really pick. Yeah if you look at pictures online. There's one called Rainbow Mountain in Peru or I don't know how much instagram or things put filters on it and this one depending on who's pictured is it's pink. It was quite pink but sometimes the pictures make it. Look even more amazingly think depend on. The season tends to be kind of lighter darker shades of pink. That has the salt miners. That are out there. And kind of local people selling artwork in tourist items. So and so this is Lake Ripa. Yes my GRANDPA Loch rose. I think in French shore the lake what it can go by. I would say gory. Islands and Pink Lake would be to half day trips. That would make sense to have with your day or so exploring around the car so to make it two or three days for the car and it strives. You might say

"General thoughts about the the schedule update? I feel like we get a Redo of our season preview. Show that we did a few weeks ago. So it's GonNa be interesting. Obviously a lot of things have changed in are going to continue to change looking forward to finally getting back to racetrack. Hopefully it is sooner rather than later and I'm just GONNA keep my fingers crossed that this all plays out knee. And could you imagine a finale at Saint? Pete how fun with that be. It would definitely be a lot of fun to be at Florida in September or October when it starting to get cold backup here but just I've been thinking about that for a week and I've honestly been afraid to text you guys because I thought you would laugh at me if I said we should do. Another season preview episode so. I'm glad that you said it because now that you said I feel a little bit more validated in saying it. I mean we we previewed how things were. GonNa go for races. That might not exist anymore. This season at least so. I think we're going to have to do a new season Preview Arman. I wanted to predict the Kota winter though. I mean I'll give you that. Yeah I mean it's GonNa be it's GonNa be interesting for sure. I think. Saint Petersburg is a finale. Like you guys said would actually be a lot of fun. We'll touch on that here in one second but then I I still haven't wrap my head around the fact that the five hundred is GonNa be in August and it happens to be my dad's birthday which is insanely cool. So that's GONNA be Weird we've had some Some takes we'll say on twitter about the fact that it probably is going to be insanely hot that day but we did get a verified for a lot of different sources that the chances of rain August go significantly down in Indianapolis so that's one positive way to frame it but back to Saint Pete it was also stated per racer. Maga- believed that double points. Were not going to be a thing for the season. Finale wherever takes place this year? No mention the five hundred. So I think the indy five hundred still going to stay double points. What are your thoughts about that in the partout is do you think that should actually be the precedent going forward with no points in the season finale? I think for this season especially it's warranted. Obviously it's GonNa be a shortened season. We don't really know how things are going to end up playing out so this season for sure it's a good idea. Going forward would really need to kind of look at things and think about it. I mean we've discussed it before. I don't see a problem either way and I know a lot of people do get rid of it but I really could see a point to be made either way so I'm not really worried about it at this point. I think they made the right decision especially with what all say could still be in ever-evolving schedule but going forward to twenty twenty one. I don't know I I know like just probably in the minority here but I don't have any issue with double points. Maybe depending on how the way this year plays out could that change my mind. Sure but right now. I'll say we can stick with double points for indy and the season finale being a statistically analytical guy. I think it's almost you have to take out double points just because now with three less races that means that that one race would carry that much more weight so one. Let's say you finish fourteenth at Indy. You have to finish in the top five if you're a Rossi or a a willpower or something. Along those lines is the championship hunt. You almost half finished in the top five at Saint. Pete even have a chance so I do agree with it. I think that looking at it that way. It's I'd rather just haven't waded normal. And even you know five hundred points. I guess that's that's fine. We can allow that. I guess Yes so am before I get to the next topic here. Like Matt is running the pit lane parlay Xbox f. One League. I'll be doing the same thing on playstation which will start. Well it started after you guys have already listened to this episode but reach out to me if you'd like to join we've got about four five people for race number one. That happened a couple of days ago. That hope. Hopefully I did well. So Reach out on social media to see if I probably crashed. Give a stream for which that yes. I will be posting some sort of youtube or something like that. So people can watch along my onboard each each week. I don't know how to do it honestly. I know nothing about streaming so. I'm sorry in advance if it doesn't work so well worked for me except for the not getting radio which is like half the battle. I guess I'm fifty percent of the way there So speaking of gaming the Indycar I racing challenge completed. Its first round at Watkins Glen. Last weekend and Sage Karam had a dominating victory leading all forty five laps Felix Rosenquist. The second willpower was third. Scott Gawking Sport and Oliver ask you was fifth so I don't know which of you guys watched it this. We are last weekend. But what did you think of the first INDYCAR gaming race? It was cool. It was good to see com. Tv personalities get together. You know it's always nice to hear diffey Townsend and Paul Tracy you know. Give each other jabs and commentator race. I mean it's it's fun content. I think it's really cool that everybody's getting behind it actually just makes me mystery seeing just a little bit more though. It's definitely not the same thing I'm GonNa go ahead and say that it's It's a little different. It's it's a hard adjustment to get us to. I do miss the actual product. But like I said it's something to do during this time. It's a good distraction for what's going on and I appreciate that. Indycar and all these associated producers sponsors TV etc went through great lengths to produce a quality product. Because I thought it was. It was well done. That is cool. That American Red Cross decided to team up with Indycar for it. I thought that was a a really cool way of getting their message out. I also thought it was interesting in in so a few comments to on social media during and afterwards about how watching it made people realize what the cars are. GonNa be like with the arrows screen in a race kind of atmosphere. Even though it's not real people pretty much said that you know after a couple of laps. They didn't even notice them anymore. So I thought that was a cool thing about it. said it can. It doesn't really replace racing. It's just kind of a distraction right now but it'll be interesting to see how how it grows over the next few weeks. I had fun for the on the low ninety minutes or so was afterwards when the web press conference was over. I felt Kinda like a you know. Usually after a race day is done or grab food and hang out with some people and whatnot and instead I was just sitting at my kitchen table so eating eating pizza which I guess isn't so bad but it was definitely. It was different. It was it was Kinda weird to adjust to. But Jesse bring up a good point about the Arrow screens I didn't even think about the fact that they were quote unquote on the car until the announces brought up it just kind of blended right into me from the Star Matt. Did you notice the same thing? Yeah and even then Stephan. Wilson actually tweeted a video of him in James Davidson. Rayson at the motor speedway. Today's so with the speedway trim and even then after the third time I watched the clip of thing was Davis and crashing. Even after time I watch and I'm like wow. I forgot that. They were screens on the car. So to me based on what we've seen testing and then you know the images that came out prior to the season and more testing things actually just grown on me. So it's something that don't really take into account anymore. It's just like one with the car and to me in all great and and real quick before we get to a prediction for the next one. The road to indy did a Combo race all three series in one. A bunch of guys some team owners think Phillip Dennis. One believe in ghosts driver in. Usf Two thousand. I did not put that up my screen beforehand but it was. I think it was like thirty. Four cars at at Barbara. Which which was kind of mayhem. But it actually was a much cleaner raised unexpected. So good for the road. The guys to to be involved in the eye racing world as well this weekend. The indycar guys are at Barber motorsports park so instead of doing a long prediction. We're just going to click on here. Who is your winner this weekend? I don't even know who all's raising that's going to be honest is it all. I think so as of reporting right now which is late Tuesday night. We have a different entry list. Other the fact that we're going to assume Robert Wickens is added. And your I don't know if there's going to be any differences other than that so maybe one or two more additions on top of that. Okay well then just for say I guess I'm GonNa get with Wiccans That'll be fun was my answer them..
