It's time to get things started did on this week's down and dirty radio show powered by polaris raise. I'm Kinda trying to figure out where the hell I need to start this week because we just it's got some big news coming out of the stage world here in the United States always the ar a rally stuff to talk about you know indycars wrapped up in Nhra granted. They are knee deep in their playoffs. NASCAR is I mean you know we had some roble shenanigans. I know a lot of people not necessarily sold on the concept and Chris Leoni. definitely is not. He's Kinda. Come around. I know Kelly crandall had some choice words about the wroval I find it entertaining. That's for sure then you know score. They announcer Baja one thousand map so by one thousand obviously you know we're only a month away from the thousand month month and a half so team's GonNa start going down. There pre running here shortly so we've got that going on and then man I mean it's just crazy. It's silly season for everybody. Schedules kind of getting announced everybody figured out where they're doing jockeying for position sponsors and things like that but the stage rally calendar and I know you know if you're a long-time listener the show obviously you know I've worked in both rallycross and stage Rally for for many many years was voice of Area Rally for a rally the predecessor they are rally America for two years and then before that I was a voice for two years I've been to a lot of rally events around this country pretty much everything coast to coast for stage rally goes in nationals I've been ju just to allot right so and I still got a lot of friends in the business obviously we do a Lotta rally coverage here drivers and things like that really looking forward to the IRA a are the championship this weekend sounds like tanner faust. He's got really good shot at taking on another championship. if so I would assume soon we might have tanner on the show next week. It's pretty safe assumption. I'm just saying but I WANNA talk about American Rally Association. You Know Rally America folded up area takes over over well. It wasn't really a takeover. It was kind of a force out of Rally America whatever politics aside you know. They are the premier national championship now right so yes. They've got this national championship schedule. They just released in Idaho last year. You know they've expanded to a nine round national championship. Idaho last year wasn't these way to say. It wasn't very smooth. I mean like it. It just didn't come off right right so I think I don't got the punt and most people will be like all right. Let's go back to eight well. They decided they're gonNA move Ohio. southern Ohio four showers a very very very we good regional rally I mean without American Poland seventy eighty entries for each That's very very good. they decided to annoy them the anoint them with a national championship round and you know the biggest thing I've got here is stage rally United States struggling one manufacturer Aka Subaru that that keeps things propped up and you know with Subaru keeping things propped up. It's you know Subaru. Obviously they've got a big investment in a rally with her rally team and everything else you know chances are they're not going anywhere anytime soon but when you're rider die with one brand or one partner it makes things really really tough you know and it's a lot of teams there there's very little media coverage of of ARA. Let's face it truth. you know their coverage she. I don't WanNa say it sucks. There's just it's non existent. we cover it. There's a few other our good friend bill would would speed freaks. He's a big Fan. Rally you know odds odds and ends here and there but not really from national perspective. You know that we US and maybe bill. What are the only people that it's even on her radar you there's this small like regional or niche rows specific stuff to make government but these teams just know? Roi Right Subaru has to develop their own conscience to get Roi can block goes into races can block develops his own content to get Roi Right so there's not a lot of value there but there is a lot of dire our teams good people good teams that are going. They're racing every single weekend our our every single event right and these guys are out of pocket. You know pay isn't great. it's not like paybacks are good. If you win you know open light or something like that or two wheel drive. I it's just it's just not doing for the love of the sport much like desert racing does racing racing does have more medium sponsorships and things like that so you know you got all this going on on the on the rally front right where you know teams are. They're frustrated at this point. The costs are ex very expensive from the National Front regionals. I think are still doing pretty solid you know to me looking at all this and this has been a struggle for ten years. This is nothing new. They are a rally America had the exact same problems so I know you're going to remove them like to me you look at things and I would want to scale back and I've been a big fan of what score is done on the desert racing acing front. Things weren't going well right. They weren't trending great. They have scaled back to four major races a year and you know what they are killing it. They're doing it because they went. You know what we're getting too big. We're trying to do too much. Let's not let's scale back. Let's focus on our core competency and let's just lay this and score has done it. They are slaying at the entries are coming back. Score is very very healthy right now. They've got a great television package. Entry numbers are we're up and I've said this before. I've been critical score at times Roger Norman absolutely sleigh this idea and they're killing it stage rally. You need need to do the same thing why one Idaho is falling out. Why do you have to bring in another? Keep it at nine and we're not talking like regional specific like desert. Racing is where it's a national national championship is on one area of the country like these guys are going to coast to coast three four thousand mile pulls times like seriously you shouldn't have gone. You went from nine eight now back up to nine because when Idaho dropped off no you should've went. You know what we're GONNA lack. A couple of these suckers get crappy entries. We're going to go down to six yeah. I I said it the national championship should be like six six events this year. Make It really easy on the team and make some really good regional events. I'm not saying get away from all these these others but have some really good regional events like a six round national championship and I think that is the key here. It's GONNA cut super a little bit of break. It's going to cut you know all the guys Cameron steelers of the world and see horns and the guys and girls counted Chang the travel travel back and forth across the country. It's going to cut them a little slack going to get their budget. Let me tell you their sponsors. It Ain't gonNA matter if there are eight or they're running six rounds. They're only getting X. amount dollars and the sponsors. It's not like they're killing it with the value you know what I mean with the Roi and things like that. It's not like you gotta have two or three more rounds and you know it's going to justify these companies paying them. I'm an extra hundred K. It's not happening if anybody outside of a Subaru teams. Get One hundred K. from a sponsored or on stage rally my mind would be blown at this point so yeah I just I see this calendar. Come out and it's actually a really really nice counter snowdrift hundred Acre Wood Olympus Rally. I mean a former. WC events snowdrift the only snow rally on the schedule Hundred Acre that everybody loves that event blocks favorites ellipse former WRC around. I Love Oregon trail because three days of complete different racing like I said Southern Ohio was was a legit regional rally and with great numbers New England. That's an iconic event. Always is big numbers ojibway in Minnesota that one's its own unique. SDP BEEN AROUND FOREVER ICONIC RACE L. S. P. R. It's always been there to kind of cap things off. you know what I mean for the season so you know and then it's just I'm looking at things I gotTa Empire State back on the regional front items now regional again rally Colorado. Oh they've got so many cool events like why push to a nine race national championship focus on your core competency get numbers up get return on investment up. Get all the processes in place. Get everything running smoothly and then go all right now. We're going to step it up. Seven one year next year may step update okay now. We're going to step up nine this thing next going to have ten and they're still not doing things right like seriously era. Come on pull you out of your ass. Let's get things right here. This is your opportunity and I feel feel like I love the people at Ari. I love the teams I love the organization Usak I I praise them for coming in and bailing things out but man. Let's do things right for. Let's be too right by all the people in Stage Rally. I don't know anyways that's enough of me rant and rave in here we have George Steinbrenner her indycar team owner he is going to be on the line when we return from this break and I gotTa tell you I am looking forward to this interview.

I guess right now. It's probably a pretty good time to be coming off a big win there at the finale and Indycar with Colton in and I guess Yankees are in the playoffs well man so probably probably all smiles on your Anna area nothing but smiles yeah so yeah. I gotTa jump back here a little bit because I know there's been all kinds of you know there's been all kinds of new swirling and stuff like that you know youngest owner in Indycar and this and that but I gotta ask you man 'cause I mean most people would see the family path and be like yeah yeah he would go down the baseball rupe how what was the draw of Indycar and auto racing for you because I know you know going back. You're involved with the rally cross program there with with her and things like that but how is the draw for you over to the four wheel side of things man grew up around Indycar my cousin was an indycar driver. Tony Renna and Maiocco Simmons has been an engineering indycar for a long time and so I just grew we're up going to the track and and being around the track and SORTA just grew up from for from a young age any was there you know as you're taking all this in and things like data music or go you know I wanNA get behind the wheel or where you always kinda more drawn to kind of the executive role and things like that. I was always more drawn to the executive creative side I I there's sort of a familiarity I guess to that realm with my upbringing and that growing up I always sort of it's like I always sort of a like even playing sports video games. I spent more time on building the team that I did actually playing games so it's it I sort of always had interesting and you know being being on the put it together side rather than the executing on the on the field or track side yeah I think that's kind of interesting too because you know with your age and things like that you look at auto racing in general and I think a lot of you know in a lottery guards. It's it's it's very much like baseball where things have been done a certain way for so long. It's just kind of become that's. That's the way you do it. Nobody's really questioned it because it's just kind of been that way right but I feel like you coming in you know and with your upbringing but also your age. You've got kind of a different viewpoint I mean is there things you see in auto racing today where you're like. I think we can do better. I think we can make these changes in shift the culture that has been there for so long of course you're saying and I mean every generation or so sport Kinda has to adapt to the to the new generation that of Sports Fan then I you think coming to that point where INDYCAR and motoracing general has to sort of make that transition and I think that starts in the digital realm that's where most of my generation and and a little before and a little after all sorts of live in the digital world now and you see that with Motorsport Sport now obviously with more engagement fan content on social media or or digital platforms and just trying to reach that demographic is the most important thing and if you can read them get them interested then they'll start to enjoy your product yeah well and I think honestly looking at all. I guess forms of motorsports in in the United States I feel like indycar really last couple of years they've kind of been at the forefront of that movement and really kind of shifted gears and gone that way where other series have been kinda slow to adapt to feel like indycar really has been kind of on the bleeding edge and I think we're seeing numbers you know you hear things about Nascar and things are dwindling indycar and you know year-over-year over year. Everything seems to continue to grow and grow and we found this growth in indycar where other forms of motorsports th they're hurting right now yeah yeah and credit to Indycar for for SORTA trying their hardest to be at the forefront of it and it's obviously something that I have a great interest in is is sort of trying trying to reach my demographic. Try and tell people my age and show people my age. How cool motoracing is now cool? indycar racing is the yeah the credit car sort of starting that that transition effectively so far what kind of how you tell us I know obviously so you mentioned telling you run on being around eighty car and things like that but I think you've got an interesting story to or I think a lot of people would would think with your last name. Just Kinda came in and bought your way into Indycar car or something like that and I know it was very very far from that I mean I I know the story is you started with with her toe with Brian that program and I mean you've kind of done everything and work your way up right. I I mean how how did that that door kind of opened up and kind of how do we get where we're at today through through motor sports because you know I think your story is very interesting that you've we've worked many different jobs in the auto racing industry and you're still very young yeah so my my my journey started with Brian I've known Brian for many years through my stepfather Sean Jones who they'd they'd raced each other in in Barber Saab thirty years ago and became friends stayed friends now. They're business partners in that India MC program. What was the rallycross program Outta the Touring Car Program and yeah I went to intern because I wanted to get involved in racing? I wanted to work in racing. I wanted to move indeed and do what I wanted to do for ten years at that point and so yeah that's where I got my start. It's it's it was a heck. It could be your it was Kinda like drinking through a fire hose working in rally cross. It's very intense over the course of a race weekend a lot of stuff to do a lot of things get broken a lot of the things you know. A lot of things changed a lot of late nights at the track so yeah it was a great way to to learn and gain experience right out of the gate well then how did this opportunity opportunity you know open up and we'll go into kind of the announcement came out with Andretti here a couple of weeks ago but you know Kinda take us through this announcement and jumping in with both feet read. I mean obviously a Colton this kid. Is You know he's been kind of prodigy for a long time. Everybody knew he was going to be good. I don't know that anybody knew is going to be this. Good this quick but how did this this opportunity for this season actually opened up and bring bring Colton in with harding and how how did this get put together for this season because I think that was one of those where honestly taught a lot of people off guard. They're like oh wow man. This is a big move. Yeah it started really in indy lights when when Colton wanted to move over from from Europe 'cause he he didn't want to do the F one round he wanted to be. An indycar driver wanted to be like his dad so it started there when we formed the team and partnered with Andretti for those first two years and obviously it was a it was an incredible place to be obviously especially in indy lights how they built that program to be really the dominant force in any lights and so we knew that's where we wanted to put Colton and we had a somewhat of a relationship with Andretti based on again Bryan Herta and knowing some of the people from Andretti before and and and it sort of became an easy home to find and then after issue this twenty nineteen season partnering with my carting who had an existing program of the year and forming sorta more or less continuing the relationship with Andretti with the Andretti technologies partnership that we had this year and sort of relatively we staying under that tent or or next to that tent and it sort of lended itself to being a a a natural home when we were trying to figure out how to keep coaching you know once Rossi signed back within ready colon became the the hot commodity the new big free agent and so working on a way to to to keep them from from finding another place to drive a big part of it was was is forming this partnership and and putting the best possible scenario for him next year and beyond to to compete for championship. What is you as the team owner? I mean that's gotTa be pretty excited to continue that relationship with Andretti because you know you've mentioned working with Brian and now you know with handwriting in all these I mean I gotta think for guy like you. I mean you know to be able to be around some of the best in the business like you have. That's gotta be exciting for you. Just with everything you're going to be able to absorb from you know these guys that have won so many races oh yeah and and being able to surround myself at a young age has sort of been the goal from from the start surround myself with as many people I can learn from as possible started with Brian heard a ten years ago when I first met him and sort of showed him throughout those years of trying to learn as much as I could from him and then then meeting Michael Andretti Jay Foreman and Rob Edwards the whole Andretti crew and then this last year with with people like Brian Bernhardt now once or junior on the on the harding side on the hurting stanford or side. It's it became just a huge ecosystem of people to learn from into to get experience from people who I think won a combined combined eighty eighty races in Indycar and spent maybe a total of one hundred years in the sport so just a lot of people people I can learn a lot from how does the money hunt affect indycar and things like that because I mean you know at the end of the day you know sponsor dollars and things like that and obviously Andretti Andretti autosport. It's been phenomenal at finding you know funding and and you're able to keep operations going whereas a lot of teams who've seen struggle but you know how is that you know and how do you approach this. You know because like you said earlier I mean we're a complete different day and age where you know fifteen twenty years ago is just all about that you know logo on the side of the car and things like that Atma TV time and now there's so much with the business to business in and you know there's so many things that go into finding funding for an INDYCAR team you know behind the scenes and and bringing those company's value I mean and how how's your approach to this I mean how are you taking you know the business side of Carl in yeah obviously being part partnered with Andretti indy lights. I got to see a little bit of how they operated on the indy-car side and then building that relationship with their commercial department government with the folks inside because I worked out of the Andretti office those two years in indy lights so I got sort of the the death look at I mean that's shared I had a cubicle in the room with all their public relations and client services folks and and so I I got to see sort of the indepth view of how they operate great and then you know being able to partner with them again getting to see even more in depth how they operate on the commercial social side sort of how how they have to get creative nowadays with with business business partnerships experiential marketing sort of creating a different experience for a partner then would have been twenty twenty five years ago and yeah. It's a great learning experience as as sort of the whole partnership has been so far it's learn the INS and outs of how it'd be how INDYCAR team Steph be creative now with with how they approach partnerships and commercial sponsors and we are going to take a short commercial break here on the down and dirty radio show powered by polaris razor but you don't want to go anywhere because we got a whole lot more to come right here with George Steinbrenner Steinbrenner on the show police writer Jim beaver Irish trophy trucks professionally hosted down and dirty radio show and also travel the country announcing motor sports events.

Oh killer and no filler Joe Welcome back to the down dirty radio show powered by polaris arrays her hanging out with the car team owner George Steinbrenner right now so I gotta ask you walk in Indianapolis Motor speedway and you've been fortunate to to walk into Yankee Stadium many the times and you know I mean you know you look at the world series. Look at the indy five hundred I mean what what's What's what kind of feeling you get in in? Both I mean is it comparable comparable to walk into Yankee Stadium in game. Seven the world series is happening or or the indy five hundred when it's Memorial Day weekend and you know things are getting ready to fire up there. I mean you get the same kind of kind of excitement in rush. yeah yeah yeah especially this year being my first five hundred it's it was sort of just as surreal feeling it it it ended pretty quickly unfortunately with the with fuel pump issue you but yeah the whole pre-race a whole two three hours before the race it was a lot of nerves yeah a lot of high heart rate stuff like that just anticipation a crazy just sort of soaking in all the all the pomp and circumstance sands tradition that I'd love my entire life the pre-race and then being able to be in a pit box watching it was really cool surreal experience and something I hope it doesn't fade with more and more five hundred. I hope I still get that sort of butterflies feeling every time but yeah the first time was something spectacular well. Let's let's talk a little bit about Colton because I know you've been you played a big part in his career. I mean you know we we gotta talk about this season though because I know I think it was preseason testing at circuit of the Americas and everybody knew this kid was going to be good. I think you guys went to circuit of the Americas for the preseason tasks Ashton. I can't remember but I think he was at the top of the charts. You know what I mean and I think everybody was a little like caught off guard like Oh wow this. This kid is the real deal and then obviously taken that victory. Just come off victory. I mean you know he's had polls. I mean he's run up front. He's had just wicked wicked speed even at the indy five hundred you know and you guys. I have to just be thrilled with where he's at. I mean what were the expectations coming into this year because I gotta think I mean he had to just blown away expectations the expectations expecations more or less before pre-season testing. We're you know maybe for top ten's. you know we finished sh seventy eight on a weekend. We're feeling pretty darn good about ourselves and we've probably executed really well on track and and and into the engineering room and so we thought that would more or less be a successful weekend. then preseason cats testing came along he led the first to practice Sir testing sessions on day one then was first and second on the two the next day we we kind of looked at each other and say well okay that that wasn't a fluke luke chemo but three of the four sessions the second in the fourth. That's not a it's not a regular strange jumbled test session. Where sort of you're you're? You're sitting third and like maybe we're third. Maybe twelve knows but yeah we kind of ramped up expectations we did. We didn't want it since it was I still testing we didn't want to get too carried away. and then Saint Pete right out of the bay run out of the gate we were fast and then yeah just missed out of the fast six because of okay not and and all things considered we finished eight and before the season you told me we finished the first race. I would've said that's perfect. We probably ran a hell of a race as we've probably executed really well and to come away. Disappointed was sort of a strange feeling and then to win the next race. was this incredible entirely above our expectations and so after that we we kind of expected to be towards the top of the timing charts and and and now you know a well executed race for us we expected to be in the top three we expected being podium positions. Maybe top five and yeah it just completely clearly shifted our expectations so now we we would know if we executed well if we finished in the top five and and we we had a couple mistakes yes we had a lot of mechanical issues. A lot of you know lapses and program. This evening was a bit of a rollercoaster but but obviously finishing off in the note we we didn't guna sort of a perfectly executed race all the way round a perfectly executed weekend. It was a great way to sort of finish the year in in sort of they get our heads in the clouds can have the next year yeah well and talking about next year and I mean even further down the line I mean what's the plans for you and Indycar obviously you've got at this program with Colton and and it's been phenomenal so far I mean what are the long term goals I mean. Would you love to have a multi car team. Run under your banner. I mean obviously you've gotta that'd be stoked on your relationship with Andretti and and things moving forward but I mean what what are the plans that you just kinda taken about year by year and kind of seeing what comes out you guys yeah that that's the way you kind of have to do it. and I could sit here and say you know in three years rugby running two cars but if if two years and ten months comes around and we're not not there you can't really extend yourself to fit some arbitrary goal really the only goal is is to compete to it could car out there that can win and whether that's one car to kars three cars whichever amount of cards to make that happen is the amount of cars that will have yeah so all that being said man. I know we gotTA WE GOTTA drawback to our original lead in the whole baseball thing but Yankees in in the playoffs I mean there there ever been any EST on your part to to jump into the baseball business. Are you pretty pretty content over here on the auto racing side of things one hundred percent sent I've always had a love for baseball just as much as I've had a love for racing and I don't know the only time I miss games if I'm stan and so yeah it's it's definitely a possibility down the road. I'd like to be involved in Indycar as long as I can regardless this is what else I do but if I'm able Sunday to to be involved in the two biggest passions I haven't liked. I think it'd be a pretty happy guy. Yeah ask so. Obviously you know pretty pretty pretty. Convincing Yankees got a good shot at taking home the world series this year right. I think we've got good cancer. Anyone well George. It's been a pleasure to have you on the show man. I've been fun watching this program you know come along and fortune after a few times this year and he's he's always getting more more animated every time I get him on so I'm really appreciating watching watching him. Come along long and spoke to see the progress on your program and I appreciate that extra avenue all right. Thanks man what what a good time having George Steinbrenner on the show you know and and this is an interview I wanted to do since the announcement was made he was going to become a team owner and you know it's one thing I absolutely love about any car. You know NASCAR. I I feel like it's the same old same old right. you know it's the same sponsors the same schedule like pretty much every year I mean it takes something like quote. Unquote the wroval you you know to really blow people's minds but indy-car they've been very forward thinking and I think that's what draws people like George Steinbrenner to the sport. You know it's very progressive in the way it's is presenting itself. You know the media surrounding it. you know bring again sponsors the younger demographic absolutely slated and I think NASCAR has been so slow to adopt it's really starting to cause them problems on. Hr there another one very very embrace embracing you know the younger you know the younger fan base digital social media things like that you know and indycar. It's just it's really lend itself. I mean you see the sponsors coming in and some of the you know some people getting involved in the sport and I think it's really really a special time for any car. I know I'm really really excited to see you know the future and what it holds because I think any guys going to do nothing but grow you know in a lot of people wanna talk about things before the split before the split any card art trump nascar and blah blah blah you know and it was the greatest and this would happen in this and that and it's never as good as champ car was and you know and all this other stuff and at the end of the day it's all water under the bridge. You can't go back in time. I'm sure if we could lots of teams a lot of series a lot of influencers people in yeah. No they would have done things differently right but I think you know it's not often you get to take an entire motor sport and reboot the entire thing and that's precisely what we're in the middle of an Indycar and granted I mean we it's got routes one hundred plus years deep with the indy five hundred but I feel like indy cars a whole man. We're in its reboot process indycar two point. Oh men they are absolutely slaying it. You know you just look like everybody wants to get involved with clarence coming over getting involved. You know you've got guys like George. Steinbrenner wants to get involved young drivers coming up. We got great. American drivers great European Drivers Great South American drivers. I mean we've got you know you're Asian drivers Tacoma Sato who slanted you know what I mean. We've got drivers literally. It is a global motorsport all encompassing you know and with the expansion I know shoot shoot just of new garden. He goes there to the Robo right to do a demo in the biggest news. Coming out of the rubble wasn't who won. It wasn't the racing it it was new garden just absolutely destroying lap times of the NASCAR and you know he went out there practice nothing different tire rubber on the track and everything else and just absolutely laid down some amazing last blue people's minds. I mean Clinton Oil was like mind blown like wow. That's like watching fighter jet. Go around here and it makes you you know it's like looking at Asker Oscar and then you look at any car and it's like Oh oh so. That's what the big fuss is about right. I think any cartoon they're progressive with their with their packaging. I know lot moving forward to that hybrid. I think a lot of people think hybrid they think Ford escape hybrid no no it's completely different concept well. It's kind of the same but different you know but really into your studying but I think with that and you know and and obviously you know they're they're doing a lot with the safety canopy and things like that you know and and we don't know what the final version is going to be like like another one that they just drop this week at the most pleasant looking canopy but yeah I think they're really pushing the envelope in in regards to safety the as well and and like George said you know the just the media the way they're presenting at the digital like it's it's just a good time to be involved in any cars. Get Time to be a fan Dan and I think all of us are really really excited about the future and what it holds in you know and really look at twenty twenty you know and you know and and we're starting grow these superstars you know and obviously you know you've got the guys that have been there and you've got you know but I mean you've got guys like you know hinges. Become you know sensation you know the penske drivers have always had good following him and Alexander Rossi came out of nowhere right and he's become one of the biggest names in motor sports in this country and you you know it's because he's he he just sleighs it Ito and Connor dailies another one how she start reading the rumor mills and the you know an and things like that and conor Daly this guy you know he's like the journeyman but he's he's a great driver you know and he pops in and does well and then like people are so invested in this connor daily story though because people like want him to succeed they want him to get this a+ top shelf right or at least a fulltime ride and you know and he he hasn't been able to secure it yet. He hasn't been will do it. It's not as on-track performance. I think a lot of it has to do with money. Budget things like that a guy like that. I mean you've got the fans invested in them. Like I see the articles pop up oppor the comments on social media people are writer Dai with conor Daly like the first team that actually signs daily to a fulltime deal like man. You're going to inherit his massive fan base and you know he's always got a smile and you know he's never down publicly at least and things like that and never talks bad about anybody and you know but you're growing Oh and guys like that and the fans are just so invested Colton Herta. I mean you know we all knew that homeless going to be really really good. We've Seen Lights I mean his dad was great. You know and you know you look at a kid like that and we knew he was going to be so so good and he comes in. Nobody expects a lot out of somebody in their rookie year but heard a the way he attacked he attacked the way he you know attack things and you know it was just amazing you know and and and he's grown his fan base I would like to see I haven't looked at his social numbers but I gotta think man they've doubled in the one year. He's been an INDYCAR hands down easily you no but you got a kid like that and there any cars home growing these people you know and we get the Alonzo's that are interested in coming over and things like that who are going to bring all the fanfare and you know Danika did that when she came back and the sport needs that but I think it's amazing that we're home growing these talents and indycar car through the ladder system and things like that they're coming up in their successful in and you know to me when you can do things like that that you know you really putting your roots in and and you're building and like I said before Indycar two point Oh man you don't WanNa mess around this is motor sport done right and and you don't see any kind of black is in the media or anything like that occasionally there might be something but by and large. It's all positive news and when you have a series like that that's got amazing racing on track. I mean any car I've said it before their a proof. You don't need gimmicks no gimmicks nascar they got the they become such a gimmick fest with these races and the stages in the playoffs in this format nap format and this qualifying any gimmicks fast person wins the race bassus person wins the championship. You know what that is what I like. It is just good solid high-quality erasing and any car is killing it right now and stoke to have guys like George Steinbrenner getting involved because he sees that same vision than indy-car has anyways.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio radio show powered by Polaris Razor and it is power rankings time joined on the line by my media director Chris Leoni who I'm not Chris your favorite weekend of the year roble my friend I. I'm poking the bear. They're a little bit. Anybody knows Chris not the biggest fan of roble and we'll just we'll just leave it at that but it was did make for some entertaining racing at the royal but we also had F one. I don't know what else we have. Nhra their knee-deep deep in the playoffs as well so I don't know we got a lot of lottery thing not necessarily off road or anything of that regard but I guess we did have a are xs well-mixed in the mix so I don't know solid solid weekend. Don't forget motorcross nations Jim you know had a another interesting USA lineup but yeah motocross nations over in the Netherlands over at circuit out and they built a Shan circuit for this one so that just added another interesting wrinkle to what was already a pretty fun International Weekend Motorsport Sport Yeah and I do I get into things I have an honorable mention I mentioned I didn't think it was warranted to put it on on my list. I toyed with the idea idea but Chris. Did you watch all Joseph New Garden Lapeer Oval. I think the biggest story coming out of this weekend wasn't xfinity wasn't cup. It was new garden literally I think he got the NASCAR communities attention because I think he was something like twelve seconds faster on the role than any of the cup cars like it was mind blowing and I think I think Clint Boyer he goes. I've never actually seen an INDYCAR run. He's like this is like a space shuttle on the track like Boyer. His mind was absolutely really blown like wow I had no idea they were that fast and I think like literally the story coming out of the this weekend was one is any car actually eventually be the Rhovyl because it's been years since they've actually run at Charlotte on the one and a half mile. I mean we're talking decades actually but honestly new garden that was a big story align coming out of this weekend. Oh no doubt Jim and you know it's one of the things that people have been talking about for ages. Now is winner Nascar and indycar going to do they would double header Winter Nascar and indycar going busy doubleheader and for a very long time. That's really been an unthinkable proposition. Nobody's is wanted to work together on it. You know regardless whether there's bad blood whether you know whether they're just different priorities and things won't workout right you know if they're concerned about who's getting top billing you know equal billing whatever it may be. you know that is certainly one thing that you can save for the ruble is I think it would probably be about the best possible place at this point for anybody to have a double header weekend. I mean Charlotte. It has some I they've always done a great job of thinking out of the box. Weather was you know putting lights on the track to be able to do the Winston so many years ago or you know bringing Global Rallycross to the front straightaway you know about under a decade ago and getting all the NASCAR guys watching you know these little contact cars going over these little metal ramps and jumps and things you know. Smi in Charlotte have always been very forward thinking. I feel like if any group is going to be the one to try and put together a double header weekend like that you know it would be the folks at Charlotte. It'd be the folks a semi and you know considering the lapsed. Joseph laid down and you know I definitely saw some people thinking like Oh you know he's probably just got the highest biased downforce package or whatever you know. He may not even really be driving that car in anger. You know I think I think there's a lot of you know. There's a lot of buzz there. I think there would be a lot of excitement for Rosal race for Indycar you know I think we just have to wait and see what happens for twenty twenty one but I know I would be at the very least disappointed if they didn't get something together by that. Yeah you know and I think you know. One of the big arguments always been well who gets top billing car's GonNa want IT NASCAR's. It's going to want it and I I think the way you structure this deal and I think everybody's thought doubleheader you gotTA. Do it like long. Beach where everybody runs on the same day they're UNIM- southern they run indy-car. They run wants and I'm like no. I think that's the wrong approach. I think with a double header like this you. Do it like you said a weekend. in-car has no problem running Saturday night races. We've seen that you know time and time again so I think you run the indy cars seriously Saturday night under lights on the bill and then you turn around on Sunday and you run run the Cup curse they both get top billing and you know and it's I don't know that that's kind of my approaches thing and I think if they approached it that way it actually would work for sure I think from a racing standpoint and I think that's the way to go. I think from a TV standpoint I mean I would. I if I were if I were indy-car I wanNA bring this one to you know network television. I'd want this to be an NBC race and I think that's the other interesting proposition that you'd have to to deal with where it's probably a lot easier to get network TV time for indycar on this Saturday afternoon in the Saturday night considering that we're not talking the five hundred hundred but also the fact that this would most likely end up being the season finale four indy-car You know I don't know it's I think there's there's a lot of ways you can go for it but you know. I think that if they're GONNA do that they're both gonna WanNa be on the TV network. Whichever whichever network that ended up being being you know whether it's a cable race for boats or whether it's a network raise for both but I would assume both would really like to be on you know on I'm the big peacock rather than you know? NBC Esn for an event like that that's just really something that's kind of unprecedented in modern motor sports right now where you don't really really have a lot of top tier series of the size of NASCAR and indycar running on the same weekend with marquee events like that yeah. I think that would if they put it together. That's one mark my calendar would actually be there for that. I think for sure that I think would turn into camp this weekend for anybody. Needy media or the Fan Department but that having said obviously new garden was one of my one of my honorable mentions but let's get to the actual real picks Chris who was who was number five have on your list this week well Jim Number Five. I'm GonNa go to circuit of the Americas attract that I haven't personally been to a few years now and certainly haven't let's see the current rallycross lay out but did a couple of rallycross events there for X. Games in the past and you know ten or faust. I'M GONNA give my number number five. It's nice to see you know. Tanner became the first driver to win multiple supercar races in this year but you know he also so kind of redeemed himself from you know well. I mean even then that's not entirely true I mean he was the defending winner coming into code but I remember the first time that rally cross you know through. GRC An X. Games Austin was at circuit of the Americas. You know tanner was coming in is kind of a big favorite in a lot of people. Were you know really looking forward to you know seeing him race. He was in that block was in that the Strana Degan you know all the big names no water. Those guys got eliminated their first round at you know the first time that rally crosswind Dakota and I remember I think ten actually flipped in that race five years ago. Oh so you know very different now. He's kind of become the master of that track. It seems had a hard fight with Andreas backer rude making his debut for Subaru took. The championship lead has a pretty healthy lead going into this weekend's finale at mid Ohio so uh Tanner Faust well-deserved spot in the list. He's my number five well and for my number five. I'm going to mirror you hear so weird eerie thing that you and I are actually one for one on the same page but yeah ten or fouls all all the reasons you had mentioned. I I will say this year. It was set up to not be tanner's year. Volkswagen factory works effort kind of pulled doubt he does have support from Volkswagen but I don't think it's you know at the level that we were accustomed to. We knew those cars were good. Beatles on its way out. Scott speed shifts gears. You know we we didn't honestly we thought this was going to be the year. You know maybe Volkswagen. You know really you know we we see them stumbled finally and Tanner I gotTa tell hey he's proven everybody wrong this year and he's had a phenomenal year and I think a Lotta Times and I know I'm guilty of it. I forget how ridiculously good good tanner faust actually is and I mean that you know ten is a good friend of mine and I mean that in the best possible way but I think he's so good that it just you know there's not a lot of flash. He just goes in does the work and get some wins and and I I think this year is one of those like everybody's take notice. Oh Yeah we can't forget about that tariffs guy because he is that good and you know and and Tanner obviously well deserving on his way to a championship. Obviously it would have been an interesting battle with Scott if he would have been able all to stay in things but tanner faust absolutely well deserving number five on both of our lists and that being said we are going to have to take a short commercial break break we come back Chris and I will have our top fours right here on the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor when looking for a new wheel for your offroad vehicle go car truck or utd the choices easy you choose what the Pros US Rob Attacker Keegan kincaid and Jim beaver all exclusively use vision wheel whether we're are dominating Baja taking the Cup at Crandon or shredding.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio the show powered by Polaris Razor Jim beaver and Chris Leoni here with our power rankings both Sir getting through our number five zero both had tanner faust at number five on on the week in which has me curious to see if our top four will somewhat be anywhere near each other Chris but who did you have coming in at number the four on your list well Jim I am going to go to worldwide technology raceway at gateway and how about them Capco Boys billion Lian Steve Torrents meaning in the final yet again in Nhra events countdown race this time obviously the second race of the playoffs and after both of them kind of stumbled in the opener and Maple Grove a couple of weeks ago both of them rebounding so billy takes the victory three his third of the season and climbed up to eighth in points Steve Without final round appearance gets to within two points Doug Kalinda to the lead in the championship so you know a fantastic rebound weekend for those guys. I know it's going to be hard for anybody to ever try and accomplish with Steve Torrance did last year Erin frankly at this point now nobody can because all for the countdown classes obscene different winners in both of their respective races so far but you know for that reason touring racing capco boys before I can't never argue with him Capco boys for my number four. I'm actually going to go roller Rayson here and I'm going to go to xfinity in the Dinger. Aj Almond Dinger Christopher Bell. It's a good day but now too. I mean you know. Aj Okay he's I love I love. Aj because I remember way back to he and Scott speed on the cover of Racer magazine and Red Bull had this big formula one driver search and they're both part of that program and both have Kinda gone their separate ways in their careers and Aj you know he had some struggles with some personal it'll demons at one point and things like that but you gotta root for a guy who is completely come back and is still racing at such elite level on road courses and I I thought it was just a bit of a feel good story. Obviously he's done quite well for himself and Xfinity Almond Dinger phenomenal effort there. It was an interesting interesting xfinity race. I actually kind of enjoyed the xfinity race more than I did the the cup race for multiple reasons but I got. Aj Almond Dinger at number four on my lips is Chris definitely a good choice. Jim and that was one of the one of the races that I did manage to watch every single lap of pretty much this weekend and yeah you know fantastic drive by. Aj to you know sort of pull away there there was quite a bit of chaos in the middle of the pack and towards the rear especially in the very last couple of laps of that race but you know you put yourself out front. You have a strong car and those colleague Racing Cars cars certainly are pretty strong. you know you manage to avoid some of that stuff. you know for my number three. I am actually gonNA head all the way across the pond I going to go to 'em explanations and I am going to give it to the Netherlands team. the first time they have ever won mode across summations and the first time that a host country has one in four years. I we couldn't get the job done on home soil last year. Unfortunately the last team to to do was France but Glenn colden off one one you know pair of victories both of his races Jeffrey from strong none of their riders finished outside of the top ten in any of the races that they ran that is the dominant performance as you can get at motocross in nations and well of course listen to bummer to see you know some of our homegrown talent you know the stars the supercross in pro motocross also you know not not really have the greatest performance. I I mean you gotTA keep in mind. It's you know most of the time they're heading over to Europe to tracks that these you know m extra guys know for years so you know they're kind of at a disadvantage but you know hey it's. What can we say about the Netherlands team though with a performance like that you know I think the grand total for them was only eighteen points so you know gotta hand it to them for fantastic weekend well-deserved victory their first nations yeah? I don't know arguments with them. I will say that Netherlands did not make my list for my number three though I'm going to go back to the wroval and I'm GonNa go with race. It's winter chase Elliott who I started become a big fan. A Chase Elliott kid is phenomenal driver big victory. Hey there you know solidified himself into. I think it was after the second stage he he had made it sell his way into the round. At twelve I believe but just a great effort by Ham and you know for for any other reason than his burnout was one for the ages. There is victory burn out so chase Elliott. He is number three on his victory injury in in cop out the wroval right Jim. I I see your chase Elliott and I will I will get there at but at a number two I am heading to Russia and I am going to give the nod Lewis Hamilton setting another Formula One record by leading thing is hundred forty third trivial race you know and that was a record that was previously held by Michael Schumacher and you know you I feel bad about it but it seems like at this point but at the time he wraps up Lewis Hamilton is basically going to have Michael Schumacher's name race from record books because he has been that dominant Mercedes and still perfect and Russia Lewis is now one of those events but you know a stellar weekend for them. They didn't take the lead in the beginning and Ferrari kind of you know out games themselves a little bit I think with how they handled stuff offer early on in the race having been in the lead instead of Leclair but you know all that doesn't matter when you've got a dominant driver and dominate car that just does is what they need to do and that's how Mercedes have been for multiple years now in formula wanting. That's certainly how Lewis Hamilton has been you know even dating back back to the very beginning of his career with Clare and you know before he moved overseas so you know for that reason had to have Lewis Hamilton on the list. I Have Mitt number two yeah. I've got to Hamilton my list. I believe somewhere along here but billy torrents. I'M GONNA go with him. Capco boys at number two Chris same aim reasons. You said you had billy torrance with an ASTERIK CAPCO. Boys Billy took the win anytime billy can take the win it gets me excited just because he's a part time effort but but you know for him and Steve both to be there at the top and top fuel. I mean you gotta give a nod to the entire cap cowboys team and they just they are running like clockwork right now. Obviously Asli Steve will take a victory at some point in this playoff format. Nhra has I haven't got there yet but there's no doubt I think he's like two points out of first place or are four points. I mean he's got him clipped just a bit. I believe but it's it's literally a deadlock. Steve will find his mo Jo. Obviously the Capco boys definitely have there's Billy Torrance definitely number two on my list this week so Chris. I think I know who you're number one is I'm pretty sure you know who my number one is so tell me about your number one well to I bet you thought that it is going to be a Cold Day in hell before I ever gave a row winter the number one spot the power rankings but I've got to give it to chase Elliott for this. One is oval growing on you a bit Chris like I feel like the robos growing on you. I mean you gave this glowing glowing review about indycar and Nascar in this matchup and now we got chase Elliott at number one on your list. I'm feel like this robles grown on your bit. Well Jim I will say this anytime that a driver bins it going straight on into the wall in turn one so you know just essentially locked up and just misses the corner completely and then comes back and wins the race and then does the burn out the exact same spot where he bended ended earlier. you know that guy is GonNa get some special recognition on my list. I mean I think listeners who've heard our power rankings in the past house know that I'm not the world's biggest chase Elliott fan boy I tend to lean more towards the black cat guys you know the Kyle Busch's of the world just because I see the value oh you and having those bad guys be good because you know one of the things that I've always observed about racing fans is they. They don't just love when their favorite driver wins. They love it almost even more when the guy who they love to hate the most loses or pulls out out or whatever but you know chase Elliott has rightfully earned you know his place sort of at the top of the Nascar Pantheon fantastic driver driver does an amazing job with fans. You know is very consistent once. He finally got that first victory you know that monkey off his back he just became totally different driver and you know is certainly a top championship contender this year alongside tracks alongside Bush you know he's he's earned that number one spot and I don't care what kind of you know what kind of attract you do it on whether it's an oval whether it's a road course whether it's the real you know if you pull up a weekend like that you cover from a mistake like that and you poke fun at yourself the way that he did. You're getting you're getting special consideration from you're getting that number. One spot Chris Leoni given props all right. I like it well for that. I am I am going to go to Russia and Lewis Hamilton Hamilton. How how can you argue with this? I mean I I've become a bit of a Lewis Hamilton Fan. I was overly critical of him just because he's made a lot of remarks in the past about Indycar Arbat I can appreciate the way he stood up for Formula One drivers and gone to the FAA and things like that and like you said you know he clips. Don't I wanNA Schumacher's records. I know this victory brings him nine short of Michael Schumacher's overall win record. I think this was his eighty second victory so I think he's is a nine shy so another ten wins and like you said Schumacher just going to be raced out of the record books at some point but yeah I mean Hamilton this was a race. They weren't supposed to win. Mean Ferrari in you know anybody that falls motoracing or any kind of social accounts knows what the hell is going on there between the Clare and Avenel in this argument and team orders whatever and that just gets me sick to my stomach when you start talking team orders and motoracing but Hamilton you know he he won the race that he wasn't supposed to to win and did it classy fashion as does Lou Hamilton and just about anything so for those reasons I've got I've definitely got Hamilton a number one on my list Chris and all that being said it is time to take a short commercial break here on the downward radio show powered by Polaris Razor. We still got a lot more more to come. We got tiffany stone calling into the show and you never know what's going to happen on T.

Pr And all all that other fun stuff was happening. eastone not much actually just sitting out the shop right now unlimited off road centers and Fenton and you know big shout out to everybody 'cause I literally I'm coming here and I have to add some new things on here that are going to get ready for trail of Sima but one of then then obviously last time. We were chatting if anybody follows that instagram you know that I needed to dry shaft though another shout out to Tom would drive shaft for hooking me up Um I got obstruct driveshaft so we're going to be installing not this week and just getting things ready. It's it's really cool though Jim because I went from a two inch you know sport lift with thirty five when I called them baby thirty five now but maybe thirty five to a three and a half inch short arm crawler kit with thirty seven Lovin and it's just completely different. It's really cool. I like the way the jail handling too because it seems like the jail 'cause I am spoiled. This is my first jeep. I know that but it just seems like all the things that Alba jeepers were complaining about before they really put in here and the rides nice and you know I'm still getting about eighteen miles per gallon Jim with being lifted and on thirty seven. I'm going bs on that. There's no way that is eighteen miles a gallon. There's no fleet it does on the freeway. I'm getting eighteen miles per gallon and everybody knows I drive this all over so I'll be driving it back to the west coast right after L. S. P. R. so I have to go from Houghton Michigan which is in the up all the way by Lake Superior all the way down to the Phoenix Arizona area and it's GonNa be quite insane to be able to see it that way but you know I'm still getting eighteen and I was testing. It and I'm wondering if it's because of the the amount of PSI that's in my power. I'm not sure I'm running. I usually would run about thirty five and they'd get like heat up if they heat up to about thirty seven but now now I have them stock at thirty seven and I didn't take any air out or anything they wanted to see and then the heat up to about forty one and that's where I'm getting it so now I'm. I'm just wondering if it's because that unlisted or what's what's really going on. 'cause I've more you know Aaron the tires. I don't know so that's where I'm at right now. Well I when you when you get when they get heated up changing pressure and stuff like that they're changing yeah so they will go up a little bit more but that's that's the thing I'm trying to find that nice sweet spot of having a good ride and still having the miles on there to be able to do it because pushing eighteen makes me happy right now usually when I'm driving across the Great Plains because this thing is just going to sail across the freeway now knowing how high I usually get about twelve. I'm happy right now with eighteen yeah for sure I got my raptor and went to fill it up the first time and it took like over thirty gallons my holy holy crap this a big tank well then I go and drive the damn thing and I get like thirteen miles per gallon. I'm like yeah. No I understand why there's three hundred gallon tank or a thirty gallon tank. Go because that way you can go three hundred miles in between things but I'm like man. If you're getting eighteen on your jeep lik- props to you because my raptor it's on thirty five anything and you anywhere near that see but the thing is is my daily is Chrysler three hundred ask dot com twenties with an eight see the three six eight feet on twenty and I can get on the freeway no joke. I've done this before no drafting. No nothing just cruise control around seventy five. Excuse me thirty three miles per gallon and my daily is a Subaru. WRX Twin Turbo all wheel drive and I gotTa tell you it doesn't get anywhere near that. We're lucky if we can crack trek twenty on a good day and that's it's just quite amazing. Mo Chrysler is pretty heavy for the three hundred. No those are big cars dot asp. I don't mean that in a bad way it's just yeah they're not exactly like some little compact or something like that. It's elegant mileage for that thing exactly unlike thirty seven you know I'm I'm in my thirties and I'm like I get really good gas mileage and then I'm driving a car like I completely just the demographics on that car. I just completely like you. You know I'm not an older lady over the age of sixty five and I'm I'm in. I'm you know my thirties being all excited about Chrysler three hundred but I feel like a obese in that car like I I it just rise really nice. It's a two thousand twelve so seven years old but it's paid off it right nice. It sits on twenty minutes. Limo came in all the way around and so I I couldn't be happier. Toss it how the great sound system and they're you know so. What is this commercial that you're like becoming UCAR used car salesman or something I see you post instagram? I'm like Oh aw I guess she's not hacking at his on air talent. She's GonNa Start slinging use. What's the deal with that nothing it was just one of the clients through the TV studio that I work at and so sometimes they just need some people to come in and a familiar personality or a familiar face and so we kind of just went in and did that funny thing though Jim about that commercial is that's the day after I spent till about one thirty in the morning at the shop so by the the time he got home showered and all that I went to bed around two thirty three o'clock actually and then I had to be back up at eight thirty? Get ready and then go to that photo don't shoot so I had like six hours of sleep and memorize dot grew up the day before I shot it what they're supposed to. They're supposed to get you in like Matthew Stafford to do the Eh do the commercial together or something like that like you. GotTa have you and then get like some yeah some bad ass Detroit athlete or something like that. I'm I'm saying they should hire me to be the producer Sir on this deal on abroad Stafford in with U. T. Stone thank you thank you are or if we wanted to do a call like luxury while we could've bought brought Matthew mcconaughey anyway and then he could be driving the Lincoln and talk to me like he doesn't those commercials so yeah you said. LS PR's coming up. I know that then united doing a couple of shows out at Sima a I don't know what's the what's the weather look like this seems like a little late in the year for LS PR normally it's like isn't it normally like the beginning of October. I'm thinking this could be snowy. Conditions up there. I know we're getting that you know heat wave wave right now. I'm looking at my watch and it is seventy five degrees on September thirtieth you know so that's a little warm for usually it did rain the rain's coming this week but that's it. It's skeptical especially in the up because the fall colors. I'M GONNA be beautiful and amazing but they're going to be cold. Is it going to be money isn't going to be raining or a mixture of all and who knows maybe at night. It dips down that we have freezing ice temperatures in the morning too so you never know yeah no. It's it's GonNa going to be interesting. I just was looking at it and like God. It seems like way late in the year but I guess thinking about it S. T. PR. They've never really run this late either. Maybe it's all shifted shifted since I worked in the rally community. I don't know but should be should be a fun one nonetheless man. I'm still like I'm crazy stoked on Oliver Solberg what that kids done this year like I it's just mind blowing up. Bassett kid has been at that age and Mike how fast is going to be when he's actually like twenty. You Know Oh my goodness and not even that it's just how like like I was saying last time we talked when I was chatting with all very well. We're it on us and he had just come off of three different type events and you know the American stage rally was the third and last event from those few weeks and then it's just he's so good in every type type of vehicle it seems like he just picks it up and he's just GonNa get better and better and I think that no matter what types of vehicles that they throw at him anytime anything with those you know wheel. It seems like he's just GonNa able to dominate it and when you have some of the great of the greats around you especially in your father it's cool to be able to get some information information from him. Talk to him see what he would be able to see and then also just having that Subaru backing they're very knowledgeable and everything that they do and you know talking to bill stokes so excited for the future for twenty twenty and kind of what they're going forward to do yeah. We're going back to the side of things I do. there was an interesting social media posts host than it was from some jeep account. I can't remember and I'm GonNa have to look back. I should know this off top my head. There's some new jeep company. That's trying to get AMBASSAD quote road embassador for their brand or something and there was this big argument one of the people's like jeep embassador. It was a girl and she said something like I duNNo. I guess you tell me no. I've had this problem too and this isn't just like in regards to jeep. It was just a popped up on one of these accounts like this whole thing going around social media right now where it's like companies don't want they. They don't WanNa give you they don't they want you to be a spokesperson for their brand but they don't WanNa pay you. They just literally want you to post a picture and give you a discount code and then they give you like a kickback or something like that and then if you want the product they want you to buy it and they'll give you a discount on the product and and I was just like I kind of agreed with her because she was just like this is the way to do things on my no. It's not at all and it was just interesting with a whole conversation like I'm like Gosh he kind of loses. It's on the authenticity when you're posting like stock photos and a picture of you with the product. I don't know what's your take on all this. I've done some of that type of stuff but at least they put the product in in my hand and like you know what I'm selective about the stuff I do you know but it wasn't like it was strictly based on coupon code sales either ten if it was like you know I I got some money up front and then a kickback on sales or something. I don't know what's your take on this because social media is created this whole crazy thing and I think there's a lot of people the kind of people like you make a living in this industry. It's made it kind of hard because it's like they. You know there's these people are coming in and undercutting the market almost and it's kind of like creating this crazy vortex works for people like you and I know I actually do agree with that. going forward with everything that I do in every product that I use if I say that it's quote unquote. T. Stone improved that there's something that I use is something that I use on my jeep it on my product like I don't have a stock photo every photo auto that anybody has ever seen whether it's the BF goodrich tires division wheels like the call bumpers that I like those are things that were put on my jeep that were put on by the specific people and I actually have you know and regardless on what people say well. Did she pay for it. Does she not pay for it. If she sponsored. I've created different working relationships with each of the different clients with the products that I have each one is geared towards something different. You can say say the same not every company has a budget that others do so you kind of make things work and I do the same exact thing even the stuff the the discount codes I literally only have to discount codes on anything it's the MGM Hydro Part Stuff that I use which is a detailing stuff which I love and and that's one code and then the punched energy stuff which I don't post too much about it but if people want to get that you know I do give them a code and yes sure we do you get kickbacks from it but I actually have those products in Japan the company that I work with I tell them. I can't say that something's keystone approved if I don't have it if I I use it if I'm not going to stand behind it because later on in life you know when we're talking about me wanting this off road performance shop and all the products that are in there being you no approved by me I want to stand behind them and I think these people just posting it to make money or kick back or or doing whatever sure sure helps them but it does discredit the other people who do use those certain products and who do live by that and not just using it for paycheck but each person is different and not everybody everybody has the financial backing to be able to do some stuff so you know having a coupon code and doing all that sure but if you're going to be a brand ambassador or somebody city I think the company should give you the product for free and if you know moving forward if you WANNA buy other things and maybe a discount but that's always the case by case Canaria. I mean that's a long answer. I guess no I think you're completely spot on the same page on that one. It was just it was an interesting conversation that popped up on social media and I'm like well wow this doesn't happen and it was like she was totally right on everything she said it was just it was interesting the way the whole thing came about and stuff like that and pick your brain because I know like I'm almost to the point where I'm like done with coupon codes and it's like you know I I get a lot of advertisers or people come in and you want to do this at some point like I've got a dozen coupon codes literally early. It's been that high at times and then all of them are different and I'm like once Jim beaver ones beaver fifteen ones this one's down and dirty and I'm like man how are people. We're GONNA remember all this. I can't even remember which code goes with which company and I'm like. If we're going to ask that needs to be uniform. They're all just coupon code JIM BEAVER and here's a list of websites but he gets the point where I feel like it's on-deck fears because y'all's ambassadors like you and I if we all have six or eight coupon codes. It's like crazy and then you know they want to base their value. They're getting out of you on those codes woods but when they've got fifteen athletes all pimping their codes out there you know and they see it and they pick one over the other. Does it mean that that one made the MO- most impression no it's probably just the person that remember the code or the. I don't know it's just I don't know I feel like that was a marketing tactic that maybe had a little legs five years ago but now it's like just just completely saturated no I I agree with you. I'm not to like you know. After a while. I'm fortunate I just make it all those whatever discount it's ten or fifteen but I even have some time difficulties. Just be like I WANNA go and get this product. I just remembered this person like you and I could talk for days is on this tip but we're up against the break here. We gotta take a short commercial break but we come back.

All RIGHT GUYS ADS. You all are where things are changing on. A almost feels like a minute by minute. Basis at this point with the world. indy-car is trying to keep everybody updated in real time on INDYCAR DOT COM with a basically. It's a blog that has updates for the schedule as we're going it's something it's rescheduled if something it's canceled or postponed it's all going to be there so if you guys go to Indycar. Dot Com backslash twenty twenty backslash sterile updates and that is thorough. You will be able to find that information as they posted so we highly recommend you follow that website and get the latest information as it comes out a lot going on right now so make sure you're checking social media and the website gestures say because you'll get all of your updates. They're As good news is that Roger Penske and the higher ups indycar seemed to have a plan during this time the civically in regards to a lot of teams who've been left in limbo in regards to either sponsorship keeping personnel on board. Things like that so they are working closely with teams. They're constantly having conference calls according to Racer Meg and so one of the things. That racer elaborated on as there's kind of three areas. They're trying to focus on one of the area is is the leadership circle money for those who don't remember they. Leaders leaders is a program that INDYCAR has in which the fulltime entries get Some sort of monetary value usually a million dollars purse per entry per season if they do run a full-time at seasons so that's just a little extra help for them to get to the full season and secure all the financial side of things and so one thing that their indycar is doing right. Now is actually. They're continuing the payments right now. Even though there is no races and that things are getting rescheduled. So you know there are do have plans right now to make sure that teams are taking care of right now which is really good. Glad to see that coming forward and hopefully we get more news in regards to engine leases and firestone tires which are to the other financial burdens. A teams are taking on right now so Mornings come out with that but we'll keep you updated on social media and whatnot. Yeah for sure. Good good article there and really happy that Roger Penske and Jay Frye Mark Miles are taking charge of this in being very open with all the team members. I heard Michael Shanks say the other day that he was extremely happy with how well the communication has been every step of the way through this as just set a couple of minutes ago. Ever changing minute by minute pretty much so it props to Roger and everybody who's involved in the very difficult decision making but on a different note the Indycar I racing series makes its debut this weekend with a certain number of drivers that is not mentioned in the INDYCAR DOT COM article. If you go to indycar dot com slash I racing? You can actually vote for the first race. Although probably by the time we release this. It'll be a one track. I'm actually guys. I'm surprised and I'm sure just laugh at. This is not going to be Milwaukee which was one of the final final. Four choices was final eight. But if you go look you can see that Whoever Milwaukee up against actually lost it was like fifty two for Milwaukee in forty eight for the track but they moved on the other track anyways which is awesome. Because of course. I'm GonNa Laugh about that because who wants to watch Milwaukee but somebody's going to say it's a conspiracy and I can guarantee that somebody who's GonNa be Robin Miller. You should see coming up tomorrow. Wednesday is going to be excellent. There were plenty of social media comments about whereas Cleveland and just to set the record straight. So just doesn't turn bright red and have steam coming out of her ears. There is going to be no five hundred mile race at Cleveland because Cleveland does not exist in I racing so it is impossible for them to raise their. This is ridiculous. I know I'm sorry. I hope you don't you guys don't riot after we. We are done recording this episode. I'm GonNa actually cry just going to be inciting riot. Well on that note tune in. Let's see here. It starts in qualifying starts around. There's a pre-race show with Katie. Hoggard at three fifteen. I think there's some sort of virtual autograph session. The race starts at four. Pm Eastern each Saturday. This week is the Fan's choice. Next weekend is barb motorsports park. April eleventh is driver's choice. April eighteenth is random draw April Twenty Fifth Circuit of the Americas and then the last currently scheduled I racing event is a non-indy-car dream track. And I'm going to surprise you guys with a question here. What is your non-indy-car dream track for the INDYCAR racing series? GotTa be SPA. I mean I was racing the other night Samya. Just come home. And she's like. Are you going to be done here soon? I'm like hang on a second. I'm not spaw. GotTa get through this race at SPA and F one thousand nine hundred and xbox because it's such a dream tracked drive. It's it's so much fun so yeah. I hope the drivers pick that one. That's should be definitely up there for sure. Well let's just go crazy here and let's say how `Bout Nurburgring. Oh Gosh choice to watch it though. I probably would tune in for that one and I am Nadda not a gaming person so this is like totally not my thing at all but I think I would have to watch for that. That's a very choice. I'm really at a loss for. Would I what direction I want to choose here so going to go the F? One track The BAWKU circuit. I think that would be really kind of mayhem. But since it's just sim racing and we're not worried about broken car parts. I think it would be a raise to watch and we will so we have a few mentions here before we get to something we're going to do instead of pitfalls this week. Matt has been kind enough to start on F one twenty nineteen for Xbox a league. That's been running Monday nights. We've had participation increase each week so far so if you'd like to join in reach out to us or Matt on Social Media I'll post about it each each Sunday or Monday as well likewise I'll be doing something for those of you who are playstation users in the next week or so once I get everything settled and figure out how to how to get it up and running so also you may have seen some of the live streams we've done Matt Knighted one matinee ingested one Christian Nevsky joined us for one. We'll be doing plenty of those. We did a cool little to choose to send a lie on Youtube that we got some nice feedback on so thank you for those who watched. We put that together. I don't know maybe like an hour or two before. We chatted last week. So that was a lot of fun and now instead of pitfalls we're going to focus on the positive this week. I don't know if just wants to start but we're gonNA do some positive things in motorsports all right. Yeah I will ahead and start I'm sure a lot of you have seen a Robert. Wickens posted a video. I believe it was yesterday And he was doing pushups to keep himself active during this time of being stuck at home. He did ten pushups. It was amazing to watch him. Do it has actually started a movement across not only motorsports the other UH sports. I believe on twitter in particular. I'm not sure on facebook too. But now everybody's doing their push ups taking videos. Am putting it up. So it's it's kind of become the Robert Wickens Challenge on social media and I love to see his. He's just archerd emperor inspiration if completely legendary. He's doing push ups like that in. I am complaining about working out at at home right now. I can't even do push ups. So he's way ahead of me already. I will be focusing on a specific car manufacturers various outlets including motor sport and some of the channels we commonly get just our every day news from have been reporting that manufacturers like Ford GM and Ferrari are stepping up and having Some of their workforce devoted to producing ventilators in this time of need. Obviously there's been reports of shortages of around America in the world right now so it's really cool to see that industries that have been designed to make very impressive. Cars transform into making ventilators at this time so just a shout out to those in the auto industry who are stepping up right now and shouldering the load of of producing the products that we need right now and similar to mine is a core autosport parent company. I think it's called composite. Resources is making masks than other. Not The ninety five masks that the hospitals need masks for most people out there that that need to wear a mask if they're sick or oblique You can find it on the core autosport website. Check that out as well. So we'll we'll put some of these links for some of these positive stories in our show notes an on social media over the next couple days guys what we can wrap up the this right now unless you have anything else. Stay SAFE everybody. Yeah stay safe. Look to our social media for any sort of updates on live streams and we'll share out the car racing stuff this weekend as well also tag us in any a positive stories you see. We wanted to see more positively coming in Anything you know. It doesn't even have to be to do with racing just anything you see. That's positive in in good news. We'd like to see it will definitely share it out if if you send it to us as well. Yup All right and guys here like nuts.

Daly got got my buddy conner daily on the line. I guess got to be a full time indycar driver this year but right now you're fulltime. Ira Sir my friend. How's everything going? Yeah it's an interesting title to Have never really expected that Yeah here we are. I mean. It's obviously a weird time can be alive right now. but We gotta do the best of what we got right now which is currently Video Games and steering wheels in our guest bedrooms in my case. It's pretty wild. I got a radio studio in my guest bedrooms. So there you go you know what I mean. It's we do what we gotta do to stay relevant right Yeah exactly I mean it is what it. W- you know I I. I've always been into video games. Love Video Games. I've always been called nerd but my friends but now a lot of the other drivers are putting in more hours than I do. So is this you know it's it's hilarious tables of turn. Everyone is now nerd and You know we're all competing like it's a real race every weekend because you know we're competitive here. Well you know it's funny. I had this conversation with somebody yesterday and I said you know out of everybody in motor sport. And we don't WanNa get into the guys who have definitely hurt their stock by the whole I racing thing but out of everybody in Motorsport. I said you know caught her. I said I said I appreciate him. Because I said you go into the indycar season and then you look a month and a half later. And I said Qatar's the one guy who's actually improved his stock because not only do we know you're bad ass indycar driver but now you've got this social following in the IRA and community and gaming. And everything else. Like I I don't know if there's a way to be successful in the middle of a pandemic somehow you figured out a way to stay relevant. Actually Improve Your stockman. I appreciate it man. I mean it. It's all about building brand. I mean every day even even when the world was you know was running as normal. You got to build your brand every day whether it's on me or whatever and I mean I've been on the twitch twitch stuff for a while but You know I never really played racing games. So it's not really been super appealing. I guess my core fan base But now enforced new so You know it's it's it's something my family's Roy I think you know I'm I'm still going to be streaming as much lower normally stream. You know when when this whole pandemic is over. I'll probably play a little bit more duty than I. Racing but I I'm not a huge fan of the area since then but I think probably still end up doing some mobile rations with some people because oval stuff fun but but yeah it's it's it's it's something you gotTa Think About Building Your brand twitch platform that we have is so great big fans engaged if people that support you are able to support you. You know multiple way on their platform. So I think it's I think that. Yeah well I ask her. Twit stream has become like its own thing. You know what I mean like. It's and you've got. I mean everybody talks about when you guys whether it be you know we had my offer event you guys have the rallycross stuff you got the indycar stuff but your stream. I mean and you got the usual suspects you and Alex and and travel and I chatter e POPs on their hinch does with some of the events things like that you know. It's like what I did this whole thing. You'd organized because now it's become like the place to go and when something's on everybody wants to tune into your twitch twitch feed just so they can hear the chaos yeah certainly. It's been surprising how much it's taken off by I think what ended up happening. Is You know. Obviously the INDYCAR guys we sort of all in my close friend released like I already knew that operate marriage. There already knew like I knew it. This scored the newer. We can get together and chat And then you know at least a hang out while we're doing this. Ira thing and then. I told everyone well. You know by the way treatment as well and they're like yeah whatever and then you know just kind of it kind went from there so I think it's you know it's a place where we can just be really honest and laugh at the same time is trying to compete And then all of a sudden our you know we got Travis Pastrana in there. We've got Chad read. Chad is a good friend of mine. We raised against the last year and the Lamborghini super series which was really cool. And I mean I've been Fan Chad for a long time. You guys. I was always number twenty two when I was growing up. That's mainly because my dad was twenty two at one point in Formula One but Chad's obviously rep the number twenty two for a long time. And he's he's been a legend. It's really cool to be a part of Of that little group of people and and it's been hilarious so coming out of this quarantine to be friends with Travis Pastrana inside read and and I think that's We can hang that up as life goal achieved you get to hang out with the trash. You got shot. It was a red bull video right at Indianapolis Motor speedway this winter. You're the you're one of the golfers in the video right so I know you can try. It traveled Hung out before and during that Red Bull. Shoot in the middle of like a frigid ass Indianapolis Winter. I know I. They did not know I was a driver or anything didn't travel once. I was purely used as an extra on the didn't even see Rossi that day literally. It was so cold that no one was really hanging out at the golf. That's the truth comes out of that video because I figured I was like. Oh that'd be a fun group to hang out with right now. Everybody that I've talked to. I think Liza said that was like literally one of the coldest days ever to be out there filming. She's like no. Don't WanNa do it again. Well terrible honestly. Great product gray finished product but Gal. It was a rough day. Well let's talk a little bit about twenty twenty Max we'll come back to the IRA stuff in a minute. But I know this was we had caught up but I know this was actually really until the rug got pulled out from all of us and eight will still be an epic year for you. You're one of the guys I know you've obviously last year. You found some numerous homes had a great run in Indianapolis finished tenth. There you know coming into the season though I mean you know you picked up that ride with with ECR which was for all the all the road and street courses plus Andy which have you stoked man because ECR indy. I mean that's you know that's a car that can put it on the poll. You know and then you also brought Carlin for the remaining oversee. You somehow splice together a fulltime ride in indycar. I mean it wasn't in the normal traditional sense but you gotta to be pumped to be back fulltime in the INDYCAR series this year. Yeah I mean. We've been working on it for for years. I it's been in twenty seventeen. We've been full-time so it's really cool to to get back to that. It's it's been a long road it's been popped not really sure how it's you know. I didn't really know how it was. GonNa go times But the only reason I'm here airports I mean they're they're the only legitimate reason why I'm still in any driver which is You know which is which I'm really thankful for An incredible sponsor credible partner able to represent four And and yeah I mean it is going to be exciting. Do we get less races. Ask which is very similar to how you know. I assumed would you know I never would. I assume that there would be a pandemic when I re employed for full-time season but I sing. Something of this nature would happen. I do tend to have a monkey pets fine. I'm so sorry start. All those who've had their season dependent. It's probably my fault but it's GonNa be fun to great teams Carlos Awesome. I'm actually starting the season with Carlin. I up now because Texas is our first rate so that'll be the first time ever in my indycar career. I will have been with the same team but at the same track two years in a row so and so. It's GonNa be exciting to do that. And then When we get an carpenter racing team I can't wait a for those guys. It's been so fun to get to know everyone and I get to know better. They run such a great organization and I'm just I'm so pumped to get back. You know to real life. Well how does the schedule I mean? Obviously you guys. All you guys are professionals. You can adapt and overcome. But how does this new scheduled kind of throw a wrench in your plans? I mean you guys had everything planned out and obviously I know it. Probably the teams. I mean it's got them working double time trying to figure out logistics and everything else so this new new schedule you know. Use a driver. I mean you kind of had an idea of the way the the flow of the season was going to go things like that with tracks travel you know and the mix of ovals and road courses and things like that you know now all of a sudden we're starting out in Texas. I think we got. What a trio of dates in Indianapolis I mean. How is this changed the way you're approaching things just because it's completely different man? I mean month. May I mean we're playing we're playing? Ira Sing in the month of May. Something's weird you know. Yeah it's it's honestly like it does make me sad thing about You know I I have never in my life ever since I existed and the human. And they're not been an indy. Five hundred in the month of May is a every every year my life better track every year my life. I've you know I've been excited for the race of the fan and then a driver So it is. It is going to be mentally quite difficult. I think we go through the next couple of weeks But you know we. We do have something to afford. I mean we have we have sexist Jim. We have scheduled a fifteen races You know and and hopefully more maybe have more I mean I think it's a dynamic situation that is gonNA always change. Everyone's going to have to adapt. I think the toughest thing for me being with a new team with cardinals the fact that now testing is not allowed anymore. So you know. We were going to do a lot of questions throughout the year because the team the team doesn't cut corners at all. And we have you know. We had plenty of tax days lined up as much as we can do And now all that's gone and it's it's GonNa be very sure race weekends. It looks like potentially You know until we get things a little bit more back to normal so it's GonNa be really tough on drivers. Really tough on rookies It's going to be really tough. I think everyone's GonNa try and you know go. Bigger go home. Type of approach could be a lot of mistakes So you just gotTa hope you make it in the first. Few races is a bit of a information collecting journey and try to try to stay. Stay good point strategy. Stay up towards the Front And then really hit your stride mid season when one hundred is happening in August. So we'll see what happens. How how important was it? We're talking about you know your twenty twenty that you've got lined up and this fulltime riot and how important was twenty nineteen in that you a lot of drivers. Things don't work their way. They kind of just fe fade away. And just wait for that phone call and they start sending emails. They're not really. You know. I GUESS. You know in in. Pick BILL'S PICTURE. But you on the other hand you went. You know you picked up some rides here and there. Obviously you had a great run at indy. You did some stuff with midgets the Chili Bowl. Obviously you were talking about the Lamborghini series. You know. I know you were driving. What the the two seater. When you got a chance I mean how was that like staying in front of people you know how. How important was everything? We're doing and staying in the public eye. Did that help bring this ride in two thousand twenty together into really humbling experience. I mean you go from two years in a row of being. You know being the guy at the team. You're working working towards winning races. We were on the Party. My rookie year called so good twenty seventeen. I thought it was a building year into You know it's you're a three year deal with. This team really really enjoyed working with the guys that foyt And they they needed a financial solution that I didn't have And I end up literally a fish out of water So I it's tough. It's awkward it's annoying You know I you know showing up driving to Cedar or just walking around seeing all my friends doing what I love to do. And I can't do it Really tough so I see how it would be hard for others potentially go through that or even you know as an ego thing like kind of having your ego crushed and kind of going back walking around in a in a polo jeans every weekend But but it was what was necessary and honestly it was totally worth it. I mean to be back now. Full time I mean. I have so many goals that I want to accomplish still I want. I've been dying to get in the car at some of these track that I felt. I was quite strong and twenty sixteen rookie air. And I'm just I'm so pumped it was worth it. It's a very humbling experience. It's it's not. It's not what I want to have to go through again but you know I appreciate those for sure who you know who helped me out and who got me to the race track. Who let me stay on their couch in their hotel rooms race weekend at times Just to be there. Well I WANNA ask too because I had guests on the show. What are we talking few months back when his new TV show is debuting? Got Derek Feeler really well and I think one of the cool things about you is wearing the polo jeans. You're actually able to be an ambassador for Indycar and and then some of the charities and different organizations you work with you know but I know Derek Theater. I had him on the show. This is a motorsport show is like conor daily. I'm like Yeah Dude. I know counter day. Ladies I do that guy is awesome. You know and so I start looking at things. I look at things like that and like it did give you some opportunity to meet some people from other walks of life when you're full-time just wearing the suit concentrating on racing. You probably didn't get a chance to meet you. Know Yeah. Bully and and getting to get into the sports you know I got to meet a couple of people doing now which is really cool and dare. Garrett's the Great Guy Obviously the connection there is you know he's a type one diabetic myself Now is really cool to talk about that and kind of you know become friends you know through you know through that and obviously I had him out to Portland last year which lasted about five hundred yards but but it was still really cool to have out there and I'm definitely GonNa add another race this year. Hopefully if we can we can have people at the but But yeah I I got to meet a lot of people thankfully I in the car was able to use me and a couple of different ways and I kept telling us it literally use me. You have access to me every weekend you can. You can do anything. I involved cleaning floors. I don't care I mean I'll talk a fan. Do whatever you do and I think again that the brand and build the brand a little bit and you know it all at all positive and end so going back. I guess we wrapping up the I. Racing and INDYCAR series. We're going to shift gears and started. June hopefully hopefully go racing at Texas but I guess we got a big one left for IRA sing. I mean I gotta wonder you know. Obviously there's racing indy. Five hundred how? How how? I guess it's not a five hundred miles. What do they call like the seventy laps or something like that? I can't remember but I mean I. Is this a big thing to win? It's India right. I mean if you win this is like a big thing. I mean you know you know how I mean. I know these guys are having fun with it if you win. It's cool but I mean how big would be winning. The I racing indy. Five hundred B I don't I don't really know to be honest. I see it as a As something that you know whoever spent ten thousand hours on it this week is probably GonNa win. I am I gonNa do that absolutely. Is anyone else doing it that I note nope? Alex hasn't even done a laugh yet. He doesn't want to do a laugh until Saturday. Which is definitely not optimal because we have a practice race later today so I don't know it. It's GONNA be interesting. I I don't think you can predict it. I think are people going to be a little bit more. You know focused and dedicated towards and try to be a little bit more aggressive. Yes Sir it's and people. It is special no matter what and I would love to win. I think that'd be awesome But you just never know. I mean it's you could so easily get wiped out in the crash lap one and you could so easily get disconnected from eating at all if something happens though it's It's GonNa be a fight. It's going to be a battle. They're going to be angry at other people and I hope that we make it through the whole thing and show up at the end with for well and go back talking about India. Let's talk about the real India. I mean it's been around in the late summer temperature. I mean it's going to be humid as hell in Indianapolis around that time. You're in Indiana boy. You understand that I mean you know what what what are. We looking at difference wise. I mean those couple of months are gonNA make a massive difference for the indy. Five hundred I mean. What are you thinking about this running in late summer? The way it is. I mean it. It's gotta be different for drivers teams. Everybody I mean that's the the conditions gonna be completely different. Yeah you're right. I mean I think the month of May interesting because the weather is actually quite inconsistent. Sometimes I remember starting the month of May two thousand sixteen and it was forty eight degrees when we started day of the month for the month of May with gravy so You know it it. It can be in a two years ago. Was the hottest race on record. So you know will it be that hot and August? I don't know I was looking at data. Come what data on the weather and you know. It's actually pretty similar to. May I think the only thing is probably consistently more humid so I mean we don't have any testing so we won't get to go there before August but once we? I think the most interesting thing about this new month of May so last month of August. Whatever indy five hundred a month it is The practice will be so so important. It'll be the first time really. We've had more than a day of practice. I think all year long. So it'll be you know there'll be people running as much as physically possible as much as the tires will allow So that could be really exciting from come off. Well I guess with no testing in that like you talked about practice to be crucial. But it's gotTa have you know a little more comfortable having this one knowing you're with these. Er Yeah I mean I feel comfortable but again. Each team has a different You know a different way. They like to set up car than a different way that they have a different set of philosophy. So it's GonNa feel different no matter what the to what I've driven and even you know even when people said. Oh you're going to feel great Andretti car. I absolutely did. It was awesome but the first three days I mean we were still like eighteenth twentieth eighteen and it took time to sort of get into where I wanted to be.

Formula E Sanya and IndyCar COTA review

"Great things happen. When people use the cloud to work together. At McAfee, we build advanced cyber security from device to cloud, so organizations or empowered to invent lifesaving cures smarter investment models and cleaner energy without protected technology. These innovations might never happen we support. Fearless innovators who are making our world a better place. Maccabi the device to cloud cybersecurity company. It's also podcast view the side of the full Marie rounds. And find out what happened what call when cokes. Well, it's been another dramatic weekend of motor spoil. We're going to be looking back at the weekend for two major categories and this edition veal of podcast and form their each on their van finally kickstarts talked to defense with victory on the streets. Sonya enjoying what Indy-Car had its first race at the circus. The Americans where Colton Herter became the youngest ever to win an IndyCar race. I we're heading performance on joined by Alex Kalinowka who is is fresh off the plane back. We have let him actually get back from China before before joining us. And I imagine you somewhat was. Yes. As I was just walking out like in sunny at twenty three hours ago. It was very fortunate direct flight home. So yes, there's a lot of people going move of ways around the world to get that. But yeah, back about recording from the glorious. Well, I was gonna say sunny, but he's completely pitch black out there. Climbs of north east London. So that we thanks less exhausted than what we used to. But, you know, the time advances in favor of failure pain in terms of the long flight having returned from Australia just last week. So it's always a little bit so distracting so you nothing than just fuller slate rather than that so can Somme. So we'll we'll try and be quick. Well, let's a little bit about about Sonya. There's no place in a great deal about s- said. So south of China, isn't it on an island? But what is sign your way where is this place? So this was billed as former near ease returns mainland China, which he absolutely was apart. From the fact that it as you say it was on an island, so not mainland China, still mainland. China Sea on island and Sonya is the capital city. And basically are actually ended up having a couple of days holiday in the city head of the race. I it's one massive resort sensually. It's just a big popular tourist destination many fought for Chinese people going. It's always been a popular place there for years doing this big drive push promote tourism there. So they've billing it as the Hawaii, China and easy incredible, please and golden beaches and incredible building that out there and the actual race though. Pat slang disingenuous Sanya, pre was very much the closest city, of course. But it was a good fifteen miles outside of the city on. Up on the coast in in high time bay, very picturesque location. But it was it was the racetrack. We signed between several massive luxurious holiday resorts, which Yuzo see in the background. If if there was any high rise cameras or helicopter shot so whatever. So yes, a short tracks only one point three miles eleven turns and dip producer. Some action. It wasn't the most action pats race nothing will go onto to discuss. But some, but yeah, I think a successful returns China for me, and it was offensively. The home team with gas and technical chattels. I said Jerry Jones is talking to the fence off to kind of kick start today. He did finish second in the first round. He's had three blanks before the Sonya rice, and it it felt like a bit of a season unraveling. And so he really needed this win in the team Brady news. This is well. Oh, absolutely. Because as we said earlier in the season he should have won in Saudi Arabia. If it wasn't for the inmates penalty, and I recognise should at one America as well. Because he qualified second through the spin at the first corner, but showed incredible pace to come back through the field is he did. Then as you say he he was he was suffering a little bit from the group. One problem in that. He was always he was up there in the championship despite things going a little bit wrong or not going as well as they could on early on the season. So it meant that he was constantly qualified down in the pot. Come getting involved in. So of several instance drivers, which is very frustrated about honesty is I was coming out to China. I was thinking this is where he so of going too easy. Maybe thinking about not throwing in the towel overindulging. Maybe this isn't going to be here, which he's never done what he earns line aways is a title defense for him. He's he's not defending the types. We can take that title that you won not your way for him as we say autosport style guide. He's not going to be a former champion. He will always be the twenty seventeen eighteen champion, but look a little bit. You know, like. Like like, bats just wasn't coming together things as Kim seem to be going wrong. But if you look at the points because of the way is just so tight this year. He was never actually outta there by getting twenty five points. You say these rates for this team? He's right mckinney's up to third in the standings now. And you know, we saw you did last year the European races took off from there radio continues continue on its way, certainly so he's back in the title hunt. And yeah, it's funny showing that form may showed early on in season. Course it was an easy victory because he had surpass Palmanova Rowlands today. I mean, he saw this this type pack of cars at the front really really tense battle. You said it wasn't kind of constant battling wheel-to-wheel. But there wasn't flash points. And he was it was pretty tense. Yeah. We saw we saw pounds when he had his opportunity. He didn't EC set in the press conference that his tactic. There was because the manager at the final corner was that he trusts low world inter folks, insecurity. Lifting off really early towards like that was quite feature of this track in the it was quite high high high on any energy management for the drivers. So they lifting and coasting quiet various points where he was doing was the back of quiet laws in would say that he was never a threat that point. And then when it came to that for nineteen laps then on the twentieth lap. Here's Ryan going for. And he's waiting for the final corner. You you saw Royal. Indeed, if you look back at the replay, he suddenly just listening while it's coming any trust me because it's faulty late nips at the side. And it really was a pretty breath taking pass for the lead. And then as you say that sort of expose role suddenly very vulnerable because he pointed out once you get policy for me Ray, everybody else on these I can go now because passes on the back foot and it produced monkey scrapping. The Pat behind learning was was pretty robustness defending. But he was just just on the right side shaky Antonio Phillies because the here ended up finishing third. They did they did touch at one point. And that was investigated by the series. There was some confusion after his whether if certainly flashed up on. The timing screen saying they were under investigation for that class. But my understanding is that they were indeed investigative at the students at just decided fairly three that I was going to be no further action, which is good because wearning self also was was under investigation having. There was a crash later on the ensued. From from the defense that weren't in upper pack game very close behind him. Was Alexander seems when entree luster came on side. But one point unfortunately, hit the ball in his cargo strateg- those yet another red flag foreign Raewyn forty eight races with only having one red flag. Another three in a row, which is quite impressive. Sorry. I was I was talking about tax. You say this is what twenty three hours a week does doesn't it? Yeah. This is the the rodents defense, the pack behinds van getting into the thing. I was impressed with which wasn't actually that relevant, but could have been it was went and got past role. And then quickly pulled a little bit of a gap which is important because I was watching. Oh, that's good. He's now giving himself while he needs to take the attack mode. Should he needs it without leasing position as it happened? I think he needed to. It was that that for me was kind of the second half of what you're talking about. He in its full sent security, and then when he did go he was gone, and that was kind of rice one affectively. Yeah. Exactly year. Right. He did. He did take maybe Bill gob. I'm wait for it to make sure that you covered it because you have to use it twice. So if you if you the traditional the traditional because for me, right, nothing's very traditional. But this sense of school of thought if your head is to white and pay the second driver of of debt because that way don't lose track position. So did that. But what he did was he didn't both informed with no point spending or your energy and just just because your head. There's no point going flat out because you know, what's gonna happen. It's gonna be safe to go. And we'd see that way that with seems I and I mean, it's that and then yeah. As as I was of a leading Vern one point was under investigation because when when the red flag ended and the and the safety car, let them out he drops to fall back. And he he's more than ten lengths behind it. He said he was awaiting violence catch up and what I meant was equal. He got a reprimand say the win was was not taken away from him. But that wasn't confirmed until after the after he crossed the line. They did say afterwards. He was unaware of how tencent been in the cockpit. But yet, but he's we miss confirmed in. Yeah. He's finally funny goes I pictured season. Coming back here late in the rice. And we did have the right day message wire he was told well, you know, bang this result and of had half amounting that perhaps in mica that penalty, which he didn't in the end so strongly ramp movements and Roland of eke. Let's guys this is the first I pro season formularly absolutely massive as for this forms, and you're right. Yeah. There was a radio saying secure there is I always reading about that in the press conference. I said what you disappointed or did you agree with that? And he said, well, actually, if I if who radio had been played out you would have heard me saying that he he'd also for that tariffication. He was like do you want me to just hold back on the team said, yes? So these over greeted together because again a bit like Vern he's had a bit of a disruption season school points on then hasn't really come together since then, but he was right in amongst in Mexico before we had that energy energy management calamity from the sun. I and then again leading in Hong Kong before before a few issues, the ended up retiring say it's finally come good for him. But he's just he's he's capitalizing. And what looks to be a very good package from from Nishantha really getting on top of all sorts of rumors about technology. I running making them sake. It worth pointing out as teammates special. Where me had had. Let's let's say quite a day in Sonya. He was forced to the practice sessions despite crashing at the end of BT, then repairs came out set the fosters time talk the group running in qualifying and looked the red hot favorite propo- position. Which is you say eventually went surveillance because he put it in the barriers numerous an identical incident happened in practice. He was then under investigation. There was some some sort of mode system that the Nissan Z's on on their breaks the wanting to inspector and said that he was there was a problem with it there. So he was disqualified from Super Bowl which meant he was he was sick feed qualified fifth when suddenly the lights coming out those. Nope, women we all around me, we say, you know, what's going on. There was no news about what was happening, but he had to start from the pit line actually lost a further. Ten seconds wants the packet gone by. There was no green light. Let let him go any chance for the pack. The reason why didn't take Chris boat which wasn't clear at the time. And there was a few different things flying few reasons that could have been it wasn't. It wasn't because the FAA will making him start from the pit lane the result of that penalty. Because when they were investigating the issue his car remained on the part for may conditions. So once those have been lifted team went to charge the car at that didn't leave them enough time to make it to the grid. So you had stuff in the pit lane that charged by it can trade rapid pace had quite a few instance, along the way those reiver's, and he did trigger the end of the rakes really when he clashed Robin freinds and sent the virgin driver into leaks, degrassi who is absolutely furious with the pair of them afterwards. And ended up with a penalty dropped him from six to eight and final results. So. Yeah. Today. That really was he was he was thoroughly Peter into degrassi. Yeah. He his response to degrassi fury was to say. Well, I was up in the air and you had to it was the break and they play looks up. So yeah, not much. He could it on the defense. Yeah. Yeah. He's also quite a that's any feelings to customer for for BMW was his teammate sems didn't finish the race to cost third back into the lead of the championship. So he's I mean the championship very amorphous signified as bake bakery drivers. But it's never bad things to be to be up front is. Absolutely. He's you know, he's he's doing the consistent consistent running. I think is going to be very key to this to this championship. He said, you know, I got the feeling that when he's making the press conference. He was a little bit frustrated that you maybe hadn't hadn't picked up second. Or even the wings at BMW as looked very quick on these sort of high energy, I energy management courses. But. What's was saying was that he's got too much to lease and vote in new that in that in that battle? So that was paid out of the way it did nothing both so pretty satisfied with the outcome there and erstwhile championship leader some bird. Haven't said we didn't say great deal of him in the television coverage. Now, you want it done. He qualified sixteenth because he was he was first out on the writing one, which is not generally great place to be formerly maintained that there's no disadvantage to running in Greek one by the drivers accidentally admin there is and you can see some logic behind that. And I'm Bert. Didn't didn't get out of didn't get into see propo-? He qualified qualified sixteenth seems well down in the pack and just like me Verna early on in the season that exposes you to source of. And unfortunately, it was ex McLaren from laundry stuff van Doorn. He crashed into the back of him very early on the race into them both out, unfortunately, so yes. So you wouldn't have seen somebody all humanitarian couple up stories. We just we say none of the championship contender stringing. Together kind of complete season. So I found looking at the one the most consistent hatches your own numbers. He's still second in the championship. He's picked up points volume of the six races, which none of the other front runners of have managed to see Mahindra struggle to pass the past few vices, but just shows if you can consistently get points on the temporary j does you can you can still be hanging in that. Of course, he did win the second race of the season. But it's just shows. No one's really sees control of has now completely. And I think that's a combination of all the rows of the the the inverted way that the qualifying groups are working these days plus attack made in the forty five minute races. You know, really is a combination of things that's keeping everything tight and formula scripted it better to see how close the championship is in the moment and the teams championship as well. As four teams come up by two points. This this point is the season. Yeah. A very good point you make that number Jerry eastern that consistency is he's not so of these knots Sean as much in the last few races. We. So ready on in the season. He was on the podium reality. You say why he married catch? And then it was Passover teammate picking up the plaudits from Hendra they've sort of maybe gone slightly off the boil their of jesting afterwards. Maybe they've gone in the wrong direction. They should go back to a baseline that using sort of baseline sets up easing for Santiago or and Mexico. And so yes, I don't think that we'd have not seen the last of them, and I can certainly pull out on the needs the so. Yeah. So as you say, you know, credits number ship carrying on scoring scoring the points that and, but yeah, chambers zebra lineup in the fight. I think he's he's a pretty spectacular. But then role in the stolen is man. Who was the as the rookie of the moment. Also as we saw liquor degrassi before he X thrice after being torpedoed by the missile primary. Sign is a bit of a bit of a mareo carts read show. No, no. You don't get America. References. I definitely didn't get it. Now on this time, something videogame believe but separate aggressee to have problems with triggering the the the attack mode because it was you kind of went war eat around a left-hander. And it just seems that he was just a little bit physician not quite triggering correctly. How did that will work mostly getting Sipe out? Yeah. We've not seen not seeing this all that much. This this season Jose Maria Lopez at the in the round in Saudi Arabia, where he actually on the on the first time he tried to take your time eighty when faulty while the wall, and that was ultimately putting out of the race that and then on a subsequent occasion because the damage that happened to his car you missed again. So he looked like he was constantly struggling to get in there. And the same thing happened from the concept with the world with this time. He's after you just just made a mistake. Just didn't didn't didn't get it. Right. The first time he onto mistake. Once I mean, we went to forest and contribute to it. And the second time he went to slow and just misjudged it. So basically what happens with attack my zone? You can't see. It on the floor because then allowed to paint too much over the areas, but they're they're three timing loops impeded in the asphalt. The drivers have to run over very very accurately. So there's there's a real skill to getting that done perfectly as as as as as he can go really wrong there and did lose quite a bit of time. Again, showed the pay scale up into the pack. So really does an extra real real skilled? I mentioned that for for the time right on it's the United for some interesting racing season and the other sunny rights might spectacular race of the year, but pretty gripping one and another another block in the narrative of predict citing season. So thanks very much Alex for staying awake. After your your epic journey to to to enlighten us for the most part sounded very much lot. You're well rested on your game. So thank you for that. Fortunately, the next round on April thirteenth is in Royal so slightly smaller slightly shorter flight. Yeah, no guy. And I tell you what I'm really looking forward to hopefully this time having a really good pizza because launched yet I managed to catch. A ROY Moore places, and I have three terrible pieces. I've no idea how I managed. It felt I'm folk somehow for no gain a good one one can accept us. That's a mistake, but yet to fully three. So something about, you know show. But so I I wish you luck on your mission this time, so I thanks very much, Alex. Thanks very much. Ed says well before we head on C Indy-Car. I've got Jones to update you about progress in all EP manager league also spoke, of course, has a team in them and boy mainly thirty especially effectively don't have to sound quite please don't have any other exposure analysts on this podcast at this stage to give me a hard time. It's Scott Mitchell little on the last time. We we talked about this. Because frankly, the way the way more teams running I think Anita a little bit of a heart's on questions to be. But I am confidence after another stellar sixteenth place finish in a field of sixteen in Malaysia. But there were some reasons behind it the ideal strategy with a little bit of rain hit race, which was an ideal that the postive thing is there's actually loads of areas where we can improve the car. We've got a social. Media votes going on about whether to improve the the breaking of the cars who'll the handling of the Cup has no normally for for handling sourcing could handling stunned. You get stuck because the driver who. Of course, we are relying on the results can get the best of Gary Anderson alway says, the driver will drive to the peaks. They will drive to the troughs because if they're not confident they won't be able to go. Well, so I'm hoping that wins. I in our social media votes on admiralty sports on Twitter now, of course, GP's available on oil s an Android and also you can access it via browser. It's a multiplayer game. So wearing league with fifteen other teams all of which are right now better than yours. I sport one, but we're working on it. We need facilities and build evaluating some new technical stuff, etc. And we've been working on having the audio engine partners and suppliers to get the maximum performance out of the car. So we've already very confidence about ROY feature even though in the shorts. I'm things are going to be quite hard. And now I say that sound a little bit like, I sometimes hair struggling team in Formula one. So can of not doesn't end. Well, so yeah, we're gonna have to get some results. China is the is the next race that OB choose will well prepared for that. Right. So I'm hoping we can start moving off the back get into the midfield makes. And then of course, as we know from the rail world of Formula one and grown pre failed to midfield is always right. You can make quick progress progress there, so yeah, I'm hoping for some better some better fortune or company blame luck for its needs to things a little bit little bit better. I was thinking about actually getting old spills, Gary Anderson's helpless strategy. Because he's a man who called the strategy the thousand three percent and growing pre call. John Keller ultimately won a rice. The result was declared quite lights often Kimmy ROY can which basically managed to come over the trustee that wanna in one of that year's least offensive cars, which was pretty remarkable Sanita touch of that magic so GP manager valuable to download and oil s Android. If you have a look in the book podcast show notes, you'll see Lincoln their fee to be able to go and sign up, and do you can find out how you would get managing your own seeming on to say, it's it's quite it's quite addictive and on on Kane for us to to make some good progress with the autosport Saint so next up China. Let's hyper better result. Great things happen. When people use the cloud to work together. At McAfee, we build advanced cyber security from device to cloud so organizations or in power to invent lifesaving cures smarter investment models and cleaner energy without protected technology. These innovations might never happen we support. Fearless innovators were making. World of better place. Maccabi the device the cloud cyber security company. Well, now, we can turn our attentions IndyCar thrilling race at circuit, the America's the first time IndyCar Gomer, and we've got some airings and joining us to tell us all about it. It was remarkable today. Tom because we saw Colton her to become the youngest ever win over IndyCar race at the age of just eighteen Yang incredible ready halfway through the race. It like it was willpower is rice to loose and Alexander Rossi at times looked a bit quicker. But couldn't find a way past, sir. For long portions of the rice, he looked like he was going to be the theme of the weekend, which was Penske seeing to get to grips of a new track much quicker than everyone else, and it was to lose. But I always the way an indie call it takes one caution in the race turns on his head. He's one of those races, isn't it because we had willpower leading from pole from Rossi and Kelton hurts or whether we had some and his she will talk about the reasons for that. And the minute he took third from Ron hunter right at the start. And so he was a strong concern the rule away through we should we should sites. Only as third IndyCar start is. No. So he's young. He's inexperienced. And he's also in. Saying that isn't especially well fancied you could say well. Yeah. That really I think you can look at the season, we're Stein. Brenna? Harding racing is what looked like a real feel-good story and that they'd given a big chance to two young talents in one race alone. In twenty eighteen they were the the real deal the next big thing and then for various engine deals we'd had Honda talking quite a bit about how they were starting to get pushed to the limit engine supply. We had to see one of those drivers loser seats, and it starts a little bit multiple choice that but then spring training came around. It's awesome. As cold and riled the box hurts it was the one right at they're saying lap times, and you have to usual thing. It's just testing. What does it mean? When you came to practice for the real race weekend her to his right up there again. And even when they had the the engine problem. I one of the practice sessions didn't recent phasing ready to go. And then when the race came around, you know, he was in the past six years in that pocket. Very experienced drivers. Maybe not IndyCar experience percent internationally experienced drivers. And yeah, he. Mattel design as you say he was running a very lonely surge which in such a new stage of your career. That's no bad thing at all. And he was certainly set for a podium and you pay before the race ten had the chemo was when the the LA's came out. He's made his loss. Pitstop the came out for Rosen. Chris is in the wall out of the house of the penelas Mukundan and incident that's relevant attracting amidst debate that was going on during the weekend, we stay in a minute. But I think the thing that really impressed me with hurts. His of say he was leading the pack under the under caution. So we have to get through a resta- and he had Ugo behind him. He had more push to pass quad lot more push to pass facts. So always watching I'm thinking, okay. We've got an inexperienced deco for here up against the former champion what's going to happen to the re stop hurts. Didn't put a foot room essay. No, no. I mean, the other things better mind with that start with. Yeah. There was a huge disadvantage with pushed a pass. But also on call tires on a restart new track. Hey, blitzed new garden. They're not really was a crucial part because new garden couldn't get to make the the overtake. And that's a real pressure point for young driver being in a situation. You've never been in before track. You don't have too much raise rather than experience in and you've got to go and set down a marker and hold onto really unlikely race when you know, we saw early in the race. There were times when power was getting quite stressed on the radio wondering where Rossi is. Well, it's receding. What ties on these are things that drives in the thirties do lend someone who's eighteen in a totally new situation new team on just the first win for him. It's for the team as well huge moment. But he he certainly impressed hurts interesting cases because see he done a couple of years of in delights. He was winning races. Though, you never quite managed to win when the total so sunny, and from my perspective, he wasn't massively on my right or he was gonna marked down as good young driver, but not necessarily sweeper stop. But he's coming and these looks every bit the superstar, you know, he's the he's the standout rookie so far in in a remarkably strong. Rookie clause. Yeah. I see this time sent last year. We had five six seven eight causing indie license a lot of criticism there about why? There wasn't a talent. And how good improving ground is actually kind of proves the point that India's a very good proving ground. And if you have a quasi bunch of drivers, it doesn't necessarily matter. How many drivers around you know, ward hurts it was a great tile last year. And the the two of them are impressing so much against drivers. You've got ten fifteen years more experience on them shows that you know, it's still in good health. It's still a great category for learning trade, and it's still going to produce these great talents for the future. Pennzoil was that. Drove you see he finished nights today. He's going to have a full season. He's no go the majority of season having moved to Carlin. So he he was a bit of a star in the rights today with some good pulses. Also, the other other could strong rookie hurts in general. I mean, you mentioned that looks like that the real deal. How could is listening to the train no saving them referred to? How could this feedback his etcetera and of? A little bit with his father. Brian hurts the pasta driver he won races in an IndyCar and champ car at intelligent guy. Good shop, joy, engineering joy. He's still cools the racist for us. Mark on jetties was his man today. And actually had a good result as well as life for Brian probably her to sort of ran Alexander Rossi to the five hundred years ago. Remember him on the radio trying to plot? That's that fuel mileage running just saying right now you can floor go for the flag. So obviously, he's got some of his some of the qualities of his his that is actually very very good driving monster gator Seca. Do you think this is a one off? Oh, do you think Hertz now is has come into stop it himself as a top gun? We will see more wins, and is the trajectory to be championed on the line. It's very tricky. Indycar results can be quite difficult to read into just by the nature of the racing and hike content. But the one thing we definitely know about this current tier of IndyCar with the car. They have now is that sets a direction is hugely important. You sit with the likes of passionated last year in the first year that couldn't find a baseline for long. Periods of the season was nowhere compared to his teammates on televised punishing out quite a few drivers discuss it with the the money, Eric you could hide behind what they call the band-aid downforce. If you made a mistake didn't matter too much with this car. Okay. Austin's of an exception because it's F one track. You've got the huge runoffs. But you don't have the most IndyCar tracks. He sent me shown in times when it matters he can get himself into the fast sex, which is always a huge thing and IndyCar track position. Now, he's showing the maturity to lead in lead races difficult points. He sending the tributes there. Now the question is now can you do this regularly? Kenny pair there all the time. And that's no drawback on him right now. He just hasn't driven that many races. But certainly every test out so far he's passed flying killers. This. We should say we offer for willpower because of willpower is I think this is fifty six polls statistic. And he's now he's now in the eleven Marian jesse's record, which is remarkable because willpower controlled the rice he was already knew when he was heading into the pits under the caution that he was going to be in trouble on track position. Of course, Alexander Rossi with him and restarts down the back of the pack and fighters white back through into the upset. But it got worse when he could get away from it from his pitstop central shelf problem in the end, the many couldn't they can go. Yeah. He hastened reported the radio that drives shot problem at this time looking over an hour after the rice, we're hundred if it was that case Senate likely the fact that he couldn't get away in the pets. But yeah, I got about two other things you said about power that in terms of qualifying after maybe Lewis Hamilton's probably the most enjoyable to watch on a qualifying lap the way he extracts more other than anyone else's is incredible. He looked at earlier in qualifying where rolling vis and Ronnie twelve with half a second off. On power which stunning when it really matters. How is there at the front? Always from now is he's developed this real unlucky streak. I mean last year he wasn't in title contention purely because he had full retirement's and no one else in talk anywhere near that run of bad luck. Once again, it seems to be returning second race of the season. He's looking on course for dominant win reliability problem hits him again. He's gonna hurt that doesn't become another trend for him. Because it doesn't seem to be a problem by any stretch of the imagination because new garden didn't have those problems just seems to be this run of awful. Look this holding back at times with the way power because and going back many years he's won one title. But he's been second. I think four times he's been third. Another three times he's missed out on titles in in. Los Reyes shoots. He was considering the loss race last year as well. And it all seems just to be the way it goes film. They successfully when a little racist polls. And you could see with the interview gave news out of the car. You know, he was he was desperate just to. Have a normal rice again noble result, which would have been a comfortable win though. My son KIRO see may be attacked him in the final step up. Looks a lot powered under control. But you could say he's a man who that that kind of bad luck is getting a little bit because he's east clearly so keen for it notes happened. It's got has new IndyCar such fine margin, look at Dixon and all his towels. That's very much built on if goes wrong. He second third fourth fifth wherever he can get the absolute maximum. He's there and he's got that. And he seems to avoid those problems and the case of power last year. He had even one less retirement. You might even talking about him is the champion. So he knows that even just this one then yes, it's the second race of the season. He could look back at nine fifteen races time and go lots where lost the title, which is crazy. But that's just just how IndyCar is nothing. It's clear he's gonna be a consent of this year. But yeah, he's he's gonna wanna revolt those those DNS's get through the season. I think without having a single one. But it's a fifty percent day record now. So that said, that's let's see who else to run of right? Tweets finish that had a crime rate Hulan Sebestyen Buddha Mark on Jesse. We mentioned earlier was with sex Passover world. Nice. Really, great dicing. I think one of the things we did say in. This is the first time, and he calls rice, circuit the Americans very familiar with it from Formula one. We saw how good this track is for racing in terms of the sequence of cool, and you make a move, and then you could position for that corner. But then you less favorable position for the next corner on these points on the track where the opportunities present themselves involved of of why weather person you're battling with puts the car. So we saw lots of good little little ISIS going on throughout the whole failed at we. Yeah. I mean, that's one of the great things about the the new car is that it's in every condition even death year. You cannot she making me you can put passes together. You can't get it reversed as we saw at times. Unfortunately, the one detraction this time around was the fact that we had the the frankly mature situation of nineteen having no track limits whatsoever. I find immensely frustrating. Fury's injuries that you say in categories turn nineteen twenties. So important to says the next lap as a genuine overtaking spot. Instead, we've gone area. Just keeping the foot flood going onto the next lap. It just takes away from it. The fought we then had the caution caused by Dr gang onto fetch into became the racing line of track hitting a bump and nudging Rosen. Visit into the wall is is ridiculous radio. Detracts from a great addition to the IndyCar calendar great racing. But certainly during that raise the amount of people, you're one of them. You message said what's going on to nineteen shows? You know, it wasn't just a thinking. That's ridiculous. It was why really is any question. I can raise that. It's a it's an endemic problem in all of its not just Indika, but they seem to taken away safer riposte limits, which is kind of understandable, but nineteen it was just ridiculous because you didn't say they weren't just going little bit off track with they were miles. Moyle of tracking. That is created that that collision between ro raising Kristen an inch. That was what creates? The collision the race away from from power and into. Let's see who isn't it. When you look at one, there's a common sense approach. They you look at Dixon where he met up a couple of places that guy off track those upset you find he was very much pushed off pushed off track new similar thing. With Ray holding his exactly so I've seen it from there and their few for instance, on the track way, for example, Rossi's really gray overtake on the back straight. He used the inside on a war. That's up city. Finally, let's be done. Yeah. You still got to wills on the truck were very close to track. But when you just keeping your foot planting going well off track, and you know, certainly, you can't blame the drivers. If you're not gonna get punished for that, you're going to find every vantage and take every vantage in crock own if they're gonna let you do that. But it was just a need less detraction from a good race. And it does it does look ridiculous. I some people are arguing the will. It's easier to understand giving constant stupid penalties, which I'll have some sympathy with that position. But it's a million what needs to happen. And this is this is mostly spoke to locally needs to find a way to manage these chat limits with some. Kind of natural impediment Milton. So yet, but a wall or whatever you need to find somebody that has a natural law. So you can use if you want to about, but there's no evidence rather than just carrying a, Hugh. I mean, the factory making that much cooler, and of course, it raises all other question marks over safety, and that kind of thing, you know, they built a sign that. So great one which IndyCar doesn't need some eight that corner the runoff calculated based on the actual track rather than the runoff. So crazy, all these all these other problems, Lauren. What happens when you see cars off the track racing with each other? Because it kind of becomes a little bit off that so he can't please. It's it's a real mess. And I think it's addiction something needs to change, but countless championships. I remember post pussy pick-up Silverstein last year run run out of clubs. I running way off the track every single lap. And it's just it's a serious problem. And it just it just it just extreme it. So. Yeah. Runs over that. But I think that's something that needs to be needs to be looked at one thing. We should talk about a little bit of Asli is is this. Harding racing say probably people why a great deal about around her to to victory heart and Steinbrenner racing. Now this team sort of come from anywhere in in a way. But it's it's a pretty serious ration-. They've got some affiliation with Andretti heavenly. Yeah. In the case of of holiday. It's very serious operation got Brian Bonnard. There used to be part of Indy-Car officialdom, and he's now all of hesitating talking over the radio to him. They've been very sensible team their approach to IndyCar now, they made their Jeb you, the twenty seventeen Indy five hundred and then from there they kind of added select racist following season and then came in as a proper program for twenty eight and then the grew into a little bit of an affiliate to undress. He there was some engineers some support that way by the last race of twenty eight team when the award and hurts her in they were running an Andretti dumper program, which is one of the few areas in India, you cannot hub development. So it's quite important area. Maximize then managed to get the Steinbrenner associations, which is big money. They're involved in major league baseball. For example, says we know there's plenty of money there. It's out this program. They switched to Honda engines to be again a bit close hundreds. There was a lot of talk about using the Harding team together, Lonzo into IndyCar if you've done the full program in the end, not didn't happen for various reasons. But yeah, he's looking like a proper Andretti B-team in some respects. But with fab it will to me, obviously hurt Andretti links there as well. And this year really is the where they can take the series IndyCar peration RAV than worry about the other gonna make the next race with money. They cannot be a fully-fledged team and sending with her to their the signs are promising. Problems as well. So I have a new team neutral ever able to to compete so it has been so quick throughout. So it's a good story to keep it on for the for the seasonal though, it seems to be this is going to be a year about about Penske we golden leading the points. Of course, he wanted some paints a few weeks ago the season opener second-place gives him a handy championship later this early in the season with the point system. It's it doesn't mean a great deal. But you know, they fails like it's it's turning into possible Penske season they seem to tackle some of their weaknesses as well. Yeah. Very mentioned. I like teams as understanding the car last year in gang on top of it little moments tiny moments a great deal, which is powers run of unreliability. Even then last race the season there in contention, the usual faces were rival them. You're gonna have Dixon. He'll gown top of the early-season problems at the Austin, you're gonna have maybe some Lakshmi piece intended for the race and be a bit of a factor, but Sanford consistency. Paseo is. To be their new specifically developed into a drive that when he gets out in front, he he really seems to be the cost of the failed in terms of leading race controlling the racing. The pace making sure he's gap in power is very good at that. As well. The one question is and he's not wanna raise since twenty seventeen. He was ready, but lost it Sierra Leone last year, but started to make a bit of progress towards the end of the year at another messy right today. When you when you qualify that fall. But you're going to be taken out of the people's incidences. So that's the one question about the there is can get by three drivers at the front competing. But they've got to they're always going to being we're talk contention. Interesting plotlines watch the seasons whether Pence he taken a joy to replace passionately for for next year. People talk about some Rossi even throwing hurts his name around as as an ultra. Yeah. I mean, there were certainly taught last year that the captain Ezekiel was taken keen interest in Robert Wickens, the team always tonight to me that was the case they always had faith impressionist again too. But suddenly the longer about four and continue. Use the more you're gonna look elsewhere or consider what you can do that. If shakeup stuffing was shakeup, driver wise. Yeah. The thing they've got now is it sounds like the no exactly lacking for options in they've got her to doing so well with David team you've got Rossi does some sports car races with Penske. So there's that link as well. So yes, certainly this going to be options, whether they feel the need to do that. That's another thing. One of the big things this season. We have seen an injection of Nissan the market and Rosenquist and her to so it's good time for free because some fresh is coming in and increasing some headlines.

Welcome to another episode of Portland Parlay. This is Matt. Hickey joined by host Mike and jess guys. How we doing tonight living the life pretty good. You almost sounded like a race car right there. I needed to up shift about halfway through but yeah he did. I missed my shift. But that's okay hard limited for life guys. Can you believe that we're going to start talking with Irene thing? It's not like anything happened on Saturday with IRA singer or anything so let me not ramble on here for five minutes to recap everything what what happened because it was pretty crazy but the first thing I wrote in the rundown was Tony. Kahn really hates. I racing if you guys didn't have a chance to listen to 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 one and two 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 kind of 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 giving the lead to Oliver. Ask You so heading to the line Oliver. Ask US leading and Santino Ferruccio his 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 now 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 and 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. 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 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 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 rules going to be watching. As far as how they do things are as 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 which is the German Soccer League. So 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. Is 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 definitely curious to see how it it unfolds 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. I'm 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 in 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 met Saul I think Matt made a joke on my twitch 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 excuses 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. Well 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 I you or 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 Rest 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 we're 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 we said I'll start it out like I have a the last couple of weeks. Riley Motor sports has joined with core motor sports in terms of making some Howard. Air Purifying respirator masks. I don't really know exactly what that is because it's a very long article and obviously as you can tell did not read the entire article but really cool on one of the longtime IMSA teams in Riley motorsports joining with another team so hats off to them in terms of finding some really cool technology to help keep everybody safe and healthy right now so mine is tennis. Similar Andretti autosport has started using their machines to three D print pieces and build face shield masks for medical Front line workers so I think that's pretty cold that they're are able to help in that way. Obviously everybody's looking for a way to help so it. It's good that they found their little spot in the mind is going to be obviously a lot of crazy things going on right now with pandemic and whatnot and a lot of our focus has been shifted to that for those who don't know may is mental health awareness month and so.

If you are out there in need someone to speak to there are people there in your corner that can help you out I know Iran delivery that had the color green on it to commemorate that for The Pit Lane Parlay Grand Prix League Christian NFC with that a couple others in our league have done that for Mike. He's doing that with the grants me to help. Spread Awareness. And so I know that while the pandemics going on it's good that other people are also highlighting the fact that you know mental health is a big thing right now obviously with working from home you know. People who are either furloughed earned forcing been laid off. It's a stressful time for everybody. So please do not be afraid to seek help and reach out to somebody if you are going through something because we are here to help you and to end the stigmas so please just speak up if you need anything good choice there and yes.

IndyCar is looking for a jump

"A buoyant stock market in the time of Corona virus. I'm David Brancaccio in New York China. Today there are more than twenty two thousand cases of this corona virus pneumonia with four hundred twenty five deaths all but two on the Chinese mainland Macau is planning to shut its casinos as a precaution. Listen in the. US There are eleven cases but no deaths on financial markets. The concern this week had been the epidemic cutting into global growth especially in China. But this morning right now the Dow is up four hundred forty three points. One point six percent the S. and P. Five hundred up one point four percent. The Nasdaq up one and a half percent. Try to account for the buoyant market mood today is Lindsay Piazza chief economist. At stifle Nicklaus good morning. Good morning you you know this pneumonia. This corona virus is the dominant news story at the markets are shooting upward. This morning. What do you think plays into that? Well so I do think that we've seen some increased efforts on the Chinese side. Both to help stabilize the potential negative impact from the Krona virus on the humanistic standpoint in terms spreading the disease but also in terms of stepping funding for the market so helping to control the impact on the financial markets as well but the market is not assuming that they can put corona virus behind them or that. The Chinese government now has a plan to keep its economy from flipping dour because because of this no certainly not. This is more of a short term impact helping to at least boost confidence. That officials overseas are focused on the corona the virus and doing their best to help control the impact on the market. We also see that. International investors were boosted in part by a better than expected. I am number here in the A. US cuts the Institute for Supply Management Factory activity absolutely and we did see that bounced back into expansionary territory. A little bit of optimism there or as well on the heels of a phase one trade deal with China all right and we do have the president making his State of the Union address tonight. I'm guessing he's going. Imagine the economy absolutely. There are certainly some positive that we've seen over the past couple of years that are going to prom. Should president trump to try and take a victory lap. Yup We have seen a tremendous amount of resilience on the part of the consumer as well as continued stability in the labor market. Of course. There's also some concerns in the US economy as we have seen business investment trend negative for quite some time now ed of course uncertainties on the international fund remain or Zippy the exit. She's the chief economist at stifle. Nicholas thank you so much. Thank you with stock prices up this morning. Ron Prices are down. This drives the yield up the ten year yield a yield benchmark interest rate in the. US is up at one point. Six percent and two more numbers put this corona virus into perspective eleven cases no deaths in the. US bought this flu season. Ten thousand people have died from the standard flew in the US. Hundred and eighty thousand have been hospitalized. you've seen the penske name on trucks and his racing team has the top record in indy. Five hundred history now. Alpine ski is expanding with the purchase of the Indianapolis Motor speedway itself and a series of seventeen indycar races across North America. But the thing is that sport has has been in decline marketplace's ULA reports Ryan Tierney was born and raised in Indianapolis went to his first indy. Five hundred when he was just a little kid. When you're seven years is old and you see and feel in here? The cars going by a two hundred twenty miles an hour motor speedway that kind of visceral sporting experience that sticks with you forever. He's in his forties. Now still goes to the indy five hundred every year and watches drivers crammed into single seat. Open cockpit open wheel. Cars ars that revved to more than seven thousand RPM. INDYCAR has a close knit. Fan Base when tyranny talks about the sport uses we and US he says fans are optimistic. Mystic about Roger Penske's new role. We understand that this is kind of a legacy project for him and for someone as successful as he is to take this on as that kind of a project is is really exciting for us but that US is getting smaller. Some any car races used to draw a hundred thousand people to the track. Now only the indy. Five hundred Pakistan's other races are happy to get thirty thousand and the sports. TV numbers are relatively low especially compared to say regular season NFL football games. uh-huh you look at the ratings. I mean it's not like we're seeing huge increases. I mean they're inching along the last few years. Andy Baker teaches at up Ui in Indianapolis Apples and directs the university's Motor Sports Program. He says shrinking. TV audiences being less money from sponsors. He says penske may stabilize any car. But it's not going to be easy to revive it. I don't see a lot of growth. I see a very saturated market lot of the younger people aren't driving cars and they don't. They're not changing their oil so they just don't get the sport or they're not interested but Pinski does have one key asset the Indianapolis five hundred and its iconic racetrack the brickyard which the new owner plans to update penske corporation president. Bud Danker says under previous ownership the speedway was getting a little long in the tooth. They reached kind of their limit. A working capital needed. Somebody else to come in with the working capital into and to help we can do that. The penske Corp also intends to ramp up. Marketing of INDYCAR races is to attract new fans but danker says added revenue has to come first. We need more sponsors in the series when more people advertising. We want to bring you know. Some banks and cellular communication will five g communication to the racetrack. What penske paid for the INDYCAR series and for the Indianapolis Motor speedway was not disclosed disclosed? I'm a dealer for marketplace and when I say the year twenty thirty five it sounds like a star Trek stargate far into the future but it's the same distance from now as two two thousand five was in reverse fifteen years not all that long. Well there's news that Britain will ban the sale of gasoline and diesel cars by twenty thirty five concludes hybrid cars that you some gas Norway binding goal banning them five years from now in New York. I'm David Brancaccio marketplace morning report from A._P._M.. American public media.

Who'd you go with with my brother you did and so you guys had to go and pick up the tickets over will call its off site so apologize. If that's a little hectic but hopefully that worked out for you. Did you guys go up Saturday and Sunday. What your schedule We both have to work on Saturday but we went early Sunday morning Ryan. The WILCO was not a problem at all because you got to you got to the hotel and once you let once you got Outta there there was era. There was signs and it was pretty much a straight shot to the track. Had you been to an Indycar race before never always meant for years and I lived in the valley the whole time and never got to and had you been to a Laguna Seca the race track before no no well there you go. That's that's kind of exciting. It's a great facility. We love that track. It's always kind of cool. There and it's a great location. Tell me about INDYCAR. How'd you like that and I understand you guys got. Some paddock passes as well. Maybe you got a chance to go round and say hi. Ho Yeah Teams Yeah. It was just we we got there early enough. There were there were barely starting lineup. The Indy Lights uh-huh we went to paddock and we got to see the the L. them turning up the cars. Were on the arrows. Can't you could go right up to the next to the car pretty much and watch them as they're running it through their jobs and having to computers on it I had never been that close me and my had never been that close to a race car and it was just even the smell of that fuel burn which something you know that was it was cool. It was awesome fantastic. It sounds great. I am I've been able to go out. Turn do that. A few times before and and bill is Ben do all sorts of races over the years and we've been to drag racing NASCAR and it's great to hear his interpretation of the experience because it gives you know I don't know the percentage of our words of that have not been there race but just a visceral feeling alone of being being in the pit It's really hard to describe but you know for a first time first time race fan there I bet it was a damn cool experience experience. It was even just like the smell of the 'cause he's not gasoline and it's just it's almost kinda sweet united and you're either either had beaten eggs that you may just awesome and the whole thing they all experience if you have five five sell down and cut my arm and blood came out. That's what it would smell. The smell like those cars are crazy in those teams are so precise. They're so tight in you. See Them. They go in and then are taken apart the car and and back together again and the way the body were comes off in you get a glimpse underneath some of the body work even just the stuff you can see some some of it's still proprietary that you kinda see it. They don't like a lot of pictures of it but there are so complex underneath the skin and as they're just firing up and and getting those things warm it's one thing but then they get onto the track and the volume is just escalated those things at at. RPM are are just fantastic and that's such a great track because it's so complicated and you can kind of move around. I don't if you've got a chance to to sit up in the grandstands or where you got to see some of the race but if you move around like up to the corkscrew or to the to the to the main straight or or wherever wherever or even to some of the grandstand areas you can you can get a get a good glimpse of what some of these cars are doing and how they really kind of battle on the track you know we we were at the grant stance but one of the best experiences rise as we were getting ready to. We heard the indy lights race finishing so I told my brother that just go get a good seat. At the grandstands you know wanted to be at the starting line and we started working way out and as it happens we were we've somebody one of the stuarts watch out and we're in a corner and here comes the the the line of indy lights might tactically on our feet you you know driving right past us. Oh yeah and it was a it was a corner so they have to slow down and then use it as they you know they went right past as and that itself what the exhaust pointing right in tasers again it was not it was awesome. We it was a great experience right. You go to a costco. Parking lot in the last thing you want is everyone's exhausted in your face when when they're getting in and out there but but you're on the race track you just suck it all in. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It was really good. You you get when you walked around the paddock. was there any particular teams that you got a chance to get up and close with was Ernie drivers. You've got a chance to meet. Apparently we barely missed Mario Andretti. You don't trailer truck whatever we were. We got the crowd was Kinda still hanging out but he the had gone inside but the arrows the arrows chant was really open. I mean you you could because it was opening in the front open on the side so they they had the most access yellow you could you could see some of the teams but you. Kinda like we're looking from the the back end of the you know whether it's trust or or one of the things that they had but you could walk around the arrows on and they were reading it that was they have the most it was really it was really nice as cool sounds great man I'm. I'm glad you had a good time. Hopefully you'll you'll get out to more racist that was kind of our point with doing this stuff with with Bristol and Nascar now with Indycar as well was to to get some people out there and especially people who haven't had a chance to go out and experience and event like this before but I'll tell you what you you gotta call us back at at some point because coming up soon in November I believe is the misquoted I said winter nationals on on the last show but NHRA is coming back to Pomona and it is also I believe the the season finale so I spoke to our friends wins over at Jags and they're putting together a nice package where we're going to be able to give away some tickets to Nhra in Pomona and and you're go there and get to meet the JAGS team and tour the car and not just paddock access we think we can get you guys behind the ropes and and and meet the team and even peak maybe into the trailer in Kinda under hood literally under the hood of some of these cars man thought India's loud allowed wait way to go and they fire up some of these funny cars and pro stock cars definitely bring ear protection for that. You'RE GONNA win two layers of ear protection action because you talk about sights and sounds and bill and I've gone out to these events a few times for four year in the grandstands and when those cars ars run down the Strip not always it so loud you feel this wave of energy over your whole body. Imagine like like you'd see in a movie. It's like an explosion ocean-going off and have the sound wave of energy. You feel it over your eyes your face your your chest. Your legs like you get this sound wave of energy at an is so so intense like you see it on tv but you gotta experience this stuff in person so I'm glad you went out to indy. Thanks for calling in and telling us about it and and hopefully we can do something with you guys soon our new friend bill as well. We didn't get a chance to get him on the phone. He sent a nice email with this whole experience. Yes I think he went with his dad and we're looking forward to. Nhra so Jose thank you so much though thank you guys so much it was a great expense bench and from this me and my brother decided again. Brad definitely gonna be doing stuff like this morning. I'm glad you're that's fantastic much all right. Thanks Take Care Okay bye-bye all right. That sounds fun right so good. I'm glad he had a good time. We got some other stuff to to to go over. I wanted to touch on a few things the INDYCAR race he seemed team create and we're so happy for everybody that did so well over there at the event. We've got we've got the SEMA. Show coming up Bill. Is You say you got cards going to Sima one car to Kars yeah as of this morning I got two car's gone looks like the demons going to be at wells close to have the carbon wide-body the Chapel Joe Okay so they're putting the the wide-bodied Challenger out front. I I'm not sure I really don't know I think they are because it's been out there years past and they wanNA show you know in in the same spot year after year as it's progressed with the to build okay it probably will be in the shadow of your truck yeah so yeah. We'll talk about that. What do the updates on that. What's what's the status of the wide-body Challenger right. Now you send it out there to win the whipple charger. We still gotTA. We gotta get the guys the engine builders on the phone at some point because I think they're pretty much wrapping up right. Oh yeah the engines on we think they did was the car was sent back to speed core. They took the casing off from the Super Charger and it's down being dipped right now with my cammo along with the break shoppers and just a little accent you know work gun and it'll should be done here in the next couple of days and then shipped back down here so I can get some sheets on nine hundred seventy seven horsepower horsepower car so the the guys in Florida that what's the name of that shop the fabric gearhead advocation so gearhead fabrications worked on the engine. They installed the big whipple on it. They put it on the dino. Got Some kind of nine hundred plus horsepower out of it right nine seven nine hundred seventy seven eight hundred eight nine seventy seven at the tires all right so but here's the the caveat caveat is over the weekend dave and I corps tax dave survives. Yo from speed court and all I can tell you. Is this if you think that nine hundred seventy seven horsepower the challenger is is outrageous what he showed me with. My charger is terrifying right the plan on that. You've ever say that before him own. Yeah I am not setting foot in that car until it's caged and impossibly with a whealy bar in parachute. Oh my gosh absolutely terrifying yeah well. I I liked basically solve this. I basically saw a vehicle. Try to lift itself off of the diner. Oh Wow I would imagine you can so you can work with with those guys at speed core and the engine builder guys like your head and say look get get it set up where you can you can turn down the boost a little bit and then get a feel for it and then bring it up a little bit a little bit up to due its potential. That's kind of advantage of the turbo versus. The super charger is through electronic and different types of fuels and stuff like that you can kind of turn up the wick on that thing I mean there's no reason you're going to have the cards plenty of time you. WanNa have fun with it. You want to be safe with it. Why not you know by the way when I say de tuned that could be nine hundred horsepower. Turn it up fourteen fifteen. Wherever the hell it's going with this thing and and kind of see how it's GonNa go and you know like any of these things. Even when we get Carson here we get oppressed car. We get something like that. You you never for every time I get into one of these things. You never just sort of hammered down with it. You have no idea the capabilities of the car and you could be somewhat confident in your ability ready to drive. I never really am I guess that keeps me pointed straight in the right side up but you know if if you take it easy and you kind of get used to it you'll feel better about it and yeah you don't get you know my my adages via the old hurts. you know the old Hertz rental cars you know take it out to a parking lot take it out to a drag strip. Take it out to you know a controlled space and pushed to its limits within the bounds of safety. You know where where whereabouts ago yeah you gotTA learn the car. You GotTA learn the car the past few days over the weekend. I'm driving the Lamborghini or SUV SUV and on Friday show. We're going to get into more of sort of the specs and stuff of that thing but I'll tell you I really liked it it so good it is. It's an IT's. It's funny 'cause like all the photos that are out of the of the people I don't love the design and it's kind of cool and a a lot of pictures and yellow and I never liked it and yellow. I just never did right from the get go. I know a lot of people were yelling Pontiac as tack and and whatever but but it's it's good it's really good and it does exactly kind of what we anticipated was was Lamborghini. This is kind of interesting as Lamborghini has done naturally aspirated engine since the late eighties when they did the Lamborghini Alpa which was a va car and and naturally I. I kind of liked it. You know it was in rocky rocky three rocky three. I think he had this little ties. Rolling around is black lack Lamborghini and this this yes this is built on the Porsche Cayenne the Porsche q seven q eight platform arm and it's got the same four. Lido four liter turbocharged V eight that those guys use but the engine gets sent over to the engineers at porsches. Gt Division to the GT she threes they do a little work on it and I I think there is change of cylinder heads and it comes back with six hundred and forty one horsepower and long story short is it's zero zero to sixty in three and a half seconds is what they're saying. I think it's underrated motor trend has tested as fast as three seconds zero go to sixty in in an SUV that weighs forty eight or forty nine hundred pounds. It's under five thousand pounds. They meant to try to keep it somewhat lightweight lighter way. SUV's standards but it's incredibly fast it's it's smooth and comfortable and docile to drive around the street every day and then when you put it in its Sport Sport and track modes the exhaust opens out their performance opens up the throttle sensitivity opens up and just an animal and and with that much power the thing you will appreciate the most are seventeen point three inch carbon ceramic or break breaks in the front that stops that thing sixty two zero one hundred seven feet. I WANNA say like the breaking performance in the handling performance are on par with an Audi r eight V ten. I mean that's a that's a fantastic stat sheet. Let's surrealist. It's fantastic so I drove that for a little while and going out of town. Soon in my truck is in the shop so I do I have to do is I drive something like the Lamborghini love did that. I got to come in here and do the podcast I walk across the street around the block from where I live. I go to the enterprise rent a car. I grab a car and and I use it for a day or two and not twenty four hours ago. I was driving a two hundred and something thousand Lamborghini this morning morning. I hopped into the Nissan Yar s and my neighbor one of the girls that lives in my complex comes out. I waved to her being nice neighbor. She opens the back door and gets in. I was like I'm your neighbor. Not Your Uber driver and she goes. Oh sorry she dropped out of the car. It got to do a a previous. It took off. I was like Oh my God talk about a step down that was there's a fall down an elevator so embarrassing. I was trying to be the nice neighbor like waving tourist like hi good morning and I'm like you can't get in the back. I'm your neighbor. Not Your Uber driver by the way neighbor. Check the license plate on the car. Just because I wave doesn't mean I'm your Uber driver right safety. I yeah man that was embarrassing this morning but so you mentioned the truck and yes we spoke to my we spoke to our buddy. Richer Wade us at magna flow and he said good news. He's he's like. We're approved. We're going to have your truck in the magma flow booth they have the big indoor booth and they have the there are semi truck outside next the Ford drifting area we you and I both had cars there. A few years ago and the truck is going back and now it's a mad rush to get it done. It's over at Galvin auto sports and they're. They're lowering it and doing this. The steering the steering I've had issues with I'm trying to tighten up that steering and the idea was to get a quick ratio steering box. It doesn't have rack and pinion would take a lot of modifications to get rack and Pinion to work but but I was like let's rebuild the steering box to be quicker ratio and for for some reason. I cannot find a Ford steering box. That's quick ratio now and all the good places sweet manufacturing lease out here. Nobody rebuilds the four boxes for quick ratio. They just do all the more common saginaw boxes so the next option would be. I have a flaming river quick ratio steering box which I love. It's all new and it's super beefy and it's expensive and it's you know it. It's going to work great but the mounting points and everything completely different we would have to modify the frame to get it to work and I don't know we have enough time between now and seem to get it to work. That's the plan is to get that to work now because we couldn't find a Ford box but but it's why don't you put your time on something static. That's exactly that nobody you'll ever Melvin Sima Right. That's exactly what we're doing is is aesthetically. It's gotta be that's the goal now so they they are. They are lowering it and then it's going to go to a French shopping. He's GonNa do the paint and all the touch-ups and the and so first of all so I've never really owned a black car like straight up like I've done sort of metallic black and that hide some of the imperfections but a black car hard and I know you have had many over your your your life and still do yeah there you go is is getting that to always look look good so the plan is it's going to go. It's going to get it's going to get painted in touch and whatever while I'm there I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Shave off that front. and Tina and I'm GONNA go with a with a remote antenna. The guys at Dakota digital sent me it it goes onto the glass on the inside of the vehicle so shave off the whole it'll be painted and it'll be it'll be caller sanded swirl free looking gorgeous and then it's going to go soon as that dries and and and it's going back over to our friends at expel and get a full Chiron. That's the smartest thing you ever did in all the other stuff if you didn't do this if you didn't do the fell in the in the coverage you know it's just basically a race against time. That's that was one of the first calls I made the guy's going. Hey I love for you to help me out of this thing and otherwise. It's just not GONNA hold up. It's not gonNA last so we're GonNa get the stance right. We are going to get the paint looking good. We are going to do the interior refreshing up the interior the carpets and stuff and and laying down some Hush Matt and and they're a new sound system which will be good we had the windows tinted are Brad fanshawe. My Co host on on shifting steer. He's custom making a set of wheels or doing the teens and there's a group called little shop manufacturing out on the east coast. I forgot exactly where they are Tennessee. Yeah I think and they came up with the solution that we were looking for as far as breaks I said that the brake rotor and the hub Barron are all kinds of one piece and what they've done is they were able to basically three d redesigned like cad design ability hob which they machine and then they pull into the will would breaks parts Bin and on and put together a two piece rotor system with a big caliber six piston calipers setup so we're going with fourteen eighteen inch rotors with big-calibre upfront and my concern was on the truck it has rear drum brakes breaks with a B. S and I didn't think I would be able to change all of that without affecting the ABS and these guys say they can do you it so there are also developing a fourteen inch rear brake system that will work with the ABS and because the trucks are very light in the back. We'll have it proportioning valve. We'll have that setup. That's you know it's probably going to be ninety in the front and ten percent in the back but it looked great those fourteen inch will fill completely the inside of those wheels and I think so I stopped I also spoke to our buddies over at NATO and we keep trying to come up with a solution and I took your advice to bill in that. We're actually knocking to do the drag radio in the back. We're GONNA DO A to ninety five forty five eighteen on all four corners but just because I want the look to have a little bit more dish in the back. We're doing eighteen by nines in the front and eighteen by tens in the back so we can get a little more dish but we're still gonNA run the ninety five all the way round. I and we're probably GONNA run like the triple five G. Twos or maybe the great great fire ban. It really is yeah. I was just concerned. You know they came back. Look if if you're going to drive it and have a little fun with it and occasionally finally hit the track try the MTO fives or the triple five's there like you don't really need the drag radio. It's GonNa. Affect your handling performance. It's not gonNA work great in the way. It's not designed for that but if we want to take it out and do. Do you know. Maybe a drag race weekend or something like that with it. We'll go and we'll swap them. We'll just we'll. We'll just go get them swapped but as far as daily driving into your once again to just get two extra rear wheels and pop them. Maybe go yeah yeah yeah so that's that's. That's kind of the plan for now so we'll get the stance. Some we headlined ex do the back where have pace. Edwards doing the Tano the the role uptown uptown a cover on it and and then of course it will go to Magna flow and get a full exhaust but richer wayne is wants to do the headers and stuff on it because we're anticipating big horsepower like we talked about or probably not going to get the steering done in time for Seema and we're not going to do the engine but I did speak with the guys that were doing a four-goal block. We're doing dart aluminum heads. We're doing a big pro charger on it. That will be after Sima so I think Richard's Church GonNa make a set of Incheon three-quarter long tube headers and to a set of their new catalytic converters and and then the full exhaust on I took he all you had to do a very obscure vehicle and everybody jumps on board to WANNA because not everybody's doing these lightnings so it's a cool yeah. Thank you for that so Richard pointed out. He's like hey pay attention to the new season of overhauling 'cause you might see a lightning pop up and I said Jen one like mine. He's like no no not not jen wad but what he said that the lightning's are starting to they're starting to come out and and people are starting to pick them up and have some so. I don't know I'm thinking maybe I'm going to have the only genuine lightning at Sima. certainly the only one modified this way. I've seen some guys do some really incredible things after sort of joining the lightning community on social media and seem turbo kits and big motors and all kinds of crazy stuff and summer way more over the top than mine and I love what these guys are doing and it's been a great community to join a bite. You guys have heard me talk about about this before and it's like when I get into these projects. I like to be a little period correct. I don't WanNa do twenty inch wheels. I think it needs a little side while on the tires and I wanNA keep the original lightning. Gt Forty intake. It's GONNA go out to this company called big dog porting and they're gonNA. They came up with a porting strategy strategy for this thing that they're gonNA make that. Gt Forty intake flow. I want to say three hundred twenty. PFM per cylinder. It's it's it's going to match the cylinder heads and we're GONNA get it to work. It's not going to be the bottleneck of the engine. The bottleneck would probably be the super charger in believe it or not so we're GonNa four twenty-seven Dr Block and Pro Charter. Now is still a little old school so we're not going to get nine hundred and fifty horsepower like you're getting on your cars or God forbid fourteen fifteen hundred your delivery charge your start with but I wanted to run well and I wanted to sound sound good and I want to take it out and let some you guys go out and see the same enjoy check in check this out man the the the beauty of the car culture there is no right way. There is no wrong way to customize and or alter your vehicle. It's all based upon personal choice and that's the beauty of it there. Ah You know just because when I did garage Mahal we'd go out and do low riders. I I'm not going to be driving down the street and a low rider but I can definitely greatly greatly appreciate everything that went into. I tell ship and and everything mechanical. 's you know so everybody. That's what's so cool about the culture man now. Some of those have more attention to detail than anything I've ever seen. There's just so much going. We'll get the paint look at the paintings. Oh yeah bend on on those things. Oh just airbrushing work and everything else tell you what let me let me tell you guys about dodge before we keep going visit your local dodge dodge dealer.

FCA US LLC vehicles dodgers a registered trademark of FCA US LLC right all right Chris. What would it be that was great. Thanks Bill Yeah we had. We had Alastair do it last time I would give it a little dodge brotherhood of muscle English accent. I love what he doing. No dogs from anyway. That's that's kind of where we always seem. A little update on those on those car projects were excited about those and there are projects that we love then we got a lot of passion for them and I appreciate you guys hanging around and letting us talk about those things we may have something cool if I can get scheduled for the Goldberg Berg that actually make it happen. I could possibly be driving from Scottsdale into Sima right prior prior to the beginning on Tuesday. what's a couple bond around vehicles and a couple dodge people and Christie they come from Leah and Christie and do a little bonder on Gig but I gotta tune in and see if I can make that yeah. That sounds good. I did bond right what years ago and I had such a great time doing it. I know you went out not too long ago and did the drag racing portion with the demon which was awesome. We covered that on a show but I I went out there back when they were doing their corvettes but I'll tell you like especially now in the news when you're hearing things about you know the cars racking and the Kevin Hart thing. The best thing you can do is a driving school. If you want to avoid accidents learn learn how to drive like learn for real how to drive. I was always big. Fans like anybody. Getting licensed should actually have to do at least a one day course or the driving school. It's not gonNA turn you into Mario. Andretti but it will teach you something about cars even just handle. ABS breaks and and being able to turn when you're losing traction or in the rain by using ABS like everybody should should get into into that a little bit and try it and if you're not of that thought process drive down the road in traffic and look into every three other vehicle and things here cells that person is in control of thirty five hundred zero forty five hundred pound vehicle off traveling at a high rate of speed. Would you not be better served to know how to handle your vehicle the best humanly they possible mainly as an invasive tool people don't understand that you know that's that's why I take every car that I I owned and that I ever get into its limits so then I know where I can call upon in a situation that I need to get out of immediately and and truthfully you know that that's the best service you get yourself. You know it's like walking into an establishment and looking for an exit right when you walk yeah yeah yeah it's situational awareness since it's it's logic and you know and if you're thinking of something as fundamental trip or vacation to do with with a friend render spouse for a couple of buddies do it go to skip barber school. Go to a bonner in school. Go to one of those go to one of those programs and go out there and do it with a couple of friends. It's fun. I mean we're we're gear heads. There's absolutely no doubt about that but it's just a killer experience period. I don't know how you could be a human and not enjoy yourselves out there with the activities that they put in from here. It's just a blast an absolute blast. Yeah it's good you guys should try. It not not too long ago we we we did a deep dive into everything we know about the C eight corvette mid engine corvette and the advantages of going to mid mid engine and how it sort of evolved the corvette platform but now the rumor is sort of want the British version of this the the Jaguar F. type which I love the next version of this could be a mid engine. It's it's something that their design chief. Ian Callum had been wanting to do for a long time and I don't know I kind of like the idea because one of my favorite cars and we've mentioned this before on on the show with Adam as well as we do. A lot of the car auctions is is I've always been a fan of the X. J. Two twenty the the Jaguars supercar from I think in the nineties and the word that was mid engine and it was v. a six and it never really got the attention because it was v six turbo and now they're really beautiful. It really is it's such a time like the wheels are obviously salie dated but but it's the ex J to twenty is a beautiful supercar that still holds today as far as design and I love that so the idea of of Jaguar possibly doing a. Let's call it one hundred thousand dollar. You know a mid mid engine sports car. I don't think it's going to be a supercar. I don't think it's going to be a halo car for them. Now they've done the F. Type they've done. They've done the six cylinders and they've done the eighth and they've done the SVR's so imagine you have a lot of options there if you do a base f type mid engine a v eight and do like a you know it s Vr version of it and you know now you're spending one hundred and fifty hundred and sixty thousand why not like I think it's I think it could be kind of interesting and and if if I so Ian Calendar Design chief has left and he opened up his own design studio now he also designed the Aston Martin DB nine. I believe the denied. TB Seventy nine and I've always liked his design style plus. He's always a great guy to interview and he's. He's a lot of fun and if he now Jaguar can always go to him and higher his firm to help on the design side. He's not out completely completely. He just started his own company and you know I think I'd be down for that. I'd be down to to seeing something like that from Jaguar Achuar as long as it's cool enough to take away the long nose classic styling of Jazz La Right so I I'm a fan I'm a big fan of the GT styling the long nose sort of front mid engine design Aston Martin's jags things like that but but I'd be down to seeing something like this. If it comes in to the to that price point if you you know the various options and engine options available if it fits into that let's call it seventy five to one hundred and fifty thousand dollar range. That's fine it. It could be a slight bump above the corvette world it can't it can't be a hundred and fifty two to fifty. I just don't think that fits in that world. I think that would be to Supercar ash and Jaguar really needs to sell vehicles a half the between one hundred and one hundred and fifty so they can put a little bit of Jaguar into it. Yeah you know be considering you know once you compare it with the Corvette I think they do a little bump performance and and put their their tradition in it and I think that's GonNa cost a little bit more money and it's gotta be beautiful and it's got to be luxurious because the chances dances are very difficult for them to compete with corvettes performance but you know you're you're. You're paying for a little bit of that sort of British. Luxury brand over the corvette brand as far as resale value. That's a whole nother conversation down the road We don't know what's going to happen to either one of those cars but like any cars it is what it is but I I don't know it was kind of interesting news. I kinda liked it be interesting to see what they kind of do. Ah let me tell you guys about yeah. Go ahead when you're done with the with the AD. Let's touch on the Riyadh. Show you guys going no. You're GonNa have to tell about that. Let me tell you guys about thirty Saudi Arabia's. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah we're not not going. I reached out to them again and quite frankly just came aimed down to a budget they wanted us to do something specific there in shows and appearances and podcast and broadcast off offended. It got kind of expensive. I think I think we're not doing it. Also timing was kind of an issue but I want you to tell everybody a little bit about that event vent for whatever you know so far.

Tell us about the event well you know from. I don't have a lot of details except for the fact that you know it's the twenty first since the twenty fifth or twenty sixth of November in Riyadh I is a I I WANNA say. I'm going to liken it to Sima overseas. That's what I heard yeah. Th the size of this you know there's a there's a an adjoining auction with it and from what I understand you know. There's a list of five hundred cars you know right now so and I think they just is limited. whether it's Leno's display or John Forces display or you know my God God. It sounds like we're going to be very well representative. I know Chris Going Jacobs. I thought you guys were gone but things are changing from time to time whether it be the state of the world right now or whether it be you know logistics I can tell you is the demon will be there because it's on its way so I'm looking forward to it. You know it's a it's a they want to interject a little western Western culture in into the culture out there and and you know kind of open it up and pretty much put American builders car builders on display. I think it's a great opportunity. I think it'd be a lot of fun and the I can tell you this from what I from what I've been able to uncover there is a huge dodge imprint in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia so I'm very much looking forward to it because I think that's about the time were the new commercial hits so hopefully hopefully title service while over there. I'm curious to know more about the car culture over there. I know that the CMO Organization the powers that be over there and they're bored. They've toured quite a bit of the of the Middle East and are working to bring our performance parts to that part of the world. All I know they go to China as well. They go kind of all over and try to work with with those governments and say hey you know we. We have a bunch of great eight aftermarket parts. We have all these great companies. The hollies Attleboro hotchkiss why not have some of those parts available to other parts the world and so I'm curious to see what the car culture is out there. They're modifying vehicles is they're starting learning to be distribution of aftermarket parts out there. Can you get holly fuel injection like I don't mean just order for yourself and get it. Fedex via via jags eggs dot com or something like that like what can you can. Is there stall. Is there installers out that are dino tuners out there so so this event that you're going two. I know they're they're. They're pumping a lot of time and energy into an resources into bringing sort of the automotive entertainment world out there like you said Said yourself and Chris Jacobs at Christie Lee and maybe chip foods and whoever's going out there which is great bringing some of those personalities out there but are there going to be booths when you think of aftermarket parts you think they're trying to get comp cams holly and stuff out there. I think they are. I think that I think it's as part of the big plan I. I really do believe that there are many people there that are fully entrenched in this car culture and they want to get their hands on everything that everyone else in the world is getting their hands on and I think it's time that they did and I think the I think. The government is of the same opinion opinion. I don't think that they'd be bringing a show like ours if they weren't yeah yeah. That's what I was thinking too. I wasn't getting all the information so we'll just I will bring you more information as we learn it and then we'll definitely league. Give you some updates as you go out there and and and and check it out you've you've been out. You've been to that part of the world you you wrestled there. You've you've done stuff there right yeah and and I mean I I saw a few. You know modified vehicles. I you know I brought it up tire driver and Lo and behold he he was talking about in the car that drifted so I think closet. All of these people really liked the drive fast I just don't think it's it's something think that's been condoned throughout the years but I think that it's time that they they can't be bottled anymore. I think they want what everyone else in the world has and I I think they want to show their ability to customize and and and tune in with the rest of the world so I think it's a matter of time I'm an lessons as I said I think events like this only exacerbated yeah well. It sounds exciting. I'll tell ya I hope they have. Gyco out there. 'cause I the time yeah we love our friends at Geiko.

INDYCAR iRacing Challenge Heads to Barber Motorsport Park & More!

"Welcome to another episode. Welcome to another episode of Pit Lane Parlay. My name is host. Mike Joke. I'm just and Matt. Join me tonight as we have some things to talk about and some racist on youtube to share with you guys but first tonight's episode is by Cape Offers Precision engineered tools for your family bowl their third generation trimmer features. Cutting edge ceramic played and. Let's not forget about the charging fans go to manse tapes DOT COM now and use code. Hit Lane to get twenty percent off plus free shipping goes. So you know. We're just keeping up with the news and hope you guys are following us on twitter and getting engaged with some of the discussions. We've got going Mike. Injustice had some content put up on youtube great interviews great stuff we got the pit Lane Parlay Grand Prix on that's good stuff to Just a quick reminder Just like just last week if you do need any sort of updates on the latest news with an Indycar go to. Www DOT indycar dot com slash twenty twenty slash schedule updates. Are they got a good rundown of all the happenings right now? We're going to briefly touch on a couple of those including the revised schedule. That was released last week. According to Indycar this is very tentative. So nothing set in stone. Quite yet of the first proposed race of the season is going to be may thirtieth at Detroit and then the next day will be Detroit rates to so. Obviously that means the Indianapolis five hundred was moved from its traditional Memorial Day Slot to August twenty third also the Grand Prix of Indie was moved to July fourth. And that will be a double header weekend with the NASCAR series. The xfinity series going on the road as well. So it'd be interesting. See Forget need double header action with that if any drivers they're gonNA do both races. Saint Petersburg rumor hasn't may or may not be the season finale so have to keep our eyes on that again. This is still a kind of a fluid situation. So this is subject to Change Long Beach and circuited America's Zim. Barbara's still appear to be cancelled citizen. Look those up so guys. What are your 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 stream for. You're gonNA touch that a 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 care 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 then 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 own 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 usually after a race day is done. We're grabbing food and hang out with some people and whatnot and instead I was just sitting in 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 Indianapolis 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 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. My answer them I I mean obviously I feel like carom. Has something figured out with us? Hawaii racing deal so I guess I'll go with P. To last week in Rosenquist I think he put on a pretty good show and natural. Course Kinda guy so I'll rosenquist well in that case I'm going to stick with sage. Sage is a very accomplished. I racer I watched him win to Watkins Glen Race Watkins Glen Races last week and I think he led every lap in both races. So he's He's pretty good at that. So we will move on here to just a quick little segment. All three of us are going to give you guys to races that you can watch the entire race on Youtube while you are staying inside so just you WanNa start. Sure I am going to say you watch the twenty ten Chicago Land Race and also the twentieth sixteen eighty five hundred a good way to waste some time while he were in quarantine. Yes I think if you don't want to sit down and watch every season which is something. I've done no shame the two races that I would start off with would be two thousand one cart. Fontana race the brilliant race with like a million passes and then the twenty thirteen race at Sao Paulo. Which in my book is the Best Road Course race? Ever put on by INDYCAR choices. I will with Netra. Speedway two thousand Jill Farren One and Kentucky. Two thousand eleven which was at Carpenter's first career win in the first win for Sarah Fisher racing so real quick before just gets to the joker lap team pit laden shouts this week. Go to my best friend in Jake. Neely let's go with Colin Taylor and last but not least Stephen King who's now all the way over on the other side of the World Australia. So hopefully he steven. You're settled in having a good time over there and with that all right guys. It's been a minute since you've had a joker lap I I mean I don't even know at this point. How many weeks it's been like five? Maybe we'll just throw a number out there. It feels like three years. I don't know so obviously we have given you some good ways to fill some of your recording time with some racist to watch and some I racing that is coming up and these guys are doing some games or leagues or whatever you WanNa call him. I don't even know I don't play game. Sorry sorry that being said I want you guys to give our listeners. One four good way to waste some of their spare time now that everybody has a lot of spare time. That is not gaming or watching. Netflix does watching YouTube. Count does playing a computer game count. That's the game does playing monopoly account. Okay Board Games are fine. You can do for Danes Kidding. Well I mean it depends on your situation. If it's just me and my wife that's going to get old real quick You can just throwing that out there. Playing board game go play. Borgen's one person like you might as well just. Yeah I mean he never cruise man. What else is there? I mean Sammy this crazy idea that one of these days. She's actually going to get like all the stuff for making brownies. And then kind of like get everything. Set up per se. But then she's going to put a blindfold on me and then like instruct me on how to make them but she's going to guide me through the whole thing so we're praying that sometimes seeing and I'm mildly concerned. I'm going to like burn my hand off in the oven or something. This needs to be recorded for everybody to watch. We don't need to see like what second degree burns. Did something very similar in team building thing at work. Only it wasn't. There was no hot objects but we like. That's the only that's concerning me a little bit. I. It's actually really kind of fun so I think that'd be fun as make sure to take your blindfold off before you put him and I've been in. I definitely video eggshells in there. But a yeah. I think you need to set up your phone near the oven so it you can see everything going on but also don't drop your phone in the oven or burn yourself. I think that's a really cool idea though. I definitely don't try. Don't trust myself. Baking not blindfolded so I'm GonNa go with something that is actually talking to about with my parents earlier and a weekend zoom meetings Zoom is like a Webex sort of meeting not just with my parents and my brother but with a couple of aunts and uncles and cousins will not the family. That you can't visit right now is definitely important to keep in touch with if possible. If they have the technology I know not. Everybody has a Webcam or computer and whatnot. But if you can reach out to your family I spent some time on the phone with my grandmom on Sunday. And I don't ever really like to talk on the phone so Yeah reach out to your family members who aren't close in keep them company and hang out and talk about the weather whatever you want but yeah I like it. I think my suggestion would be probably to find a good book. That is not it. It's gotta be fiction that right now everybody needs an escape something completely not real. You know I don't know everybody's got their own John Day like but just something completely take your mind off things and escape because I think right now. Everybody needs that kind of Getting out of reality for a few minutes even day if you can so I think mine would be reading about time to say that. I haven't read a book in five years. Maybe you should pick one up. I wouldn't know where to start. You could even get an e book since you know what there you go with this technology. This is ridiculous right. I WANNA paperback book okay. Well I'll send you on okay. Yeah I've been listening to a lot of new podcasts. While I take the dog on extremely long walks to get some air through the neighborhood and I found some good ones so with that being said. We're going to have another little fun. Game here that we're going to rotate through each of US hosts over the next handful of episodes. I am going to give you guys three facts about a driver who's been indycar within the last five years and the job is going to be to figure out who it is so. I will go through my three facts. Let's see here. He won the Star Mazda Championship with team. Pelfrey in two thousand twelve is from the UK and he has raised in expanded IMSA and Indycar in the past couple of years. Just have no idea. The Jack Hawksworth Matt. You would be correct to brush up on weird about drivers on. Its holes an old wound. That's when I was really getting into the whole twitter thing and he beat out Connor de Phillippi that year for the championships I was. I will really bummed about that one. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I WANNA connor to win that. Pretty good he's one of the first drivers that I got to know on a personal level. So but yeah. Jack was insanely good that year. So yeah I think he won. Hold on let me go back here. He will in one two three four five six seven eight eight races any skip the last race of the year and still won the championship. It was out of this world. Just looking at the two thousand twelve star Mazda Grid. You mentioned conor Develope. Won't Peter Higa Gabby Shabas? Actually Freiburg Kyle. Kaiser Zaki Eram Gustavo in that season. Gustavo Menezes Yeah. Yeah he was team Pelfrey. He ended up going to Europe and I think I don't know where he's at nowadays but I know he got to like pretty high categories over there too. Yeah he is he is Is is rice on woman. The last couple of years for rebellion racing. Yeah so he made it so yeah. That's a fantastic grid. Holy cow so with that we will wrap it up this week. Just like we did last week with the highlighting the positives. So just you WANNA start sure. Mercedes Formula One team has been I guess pairing up with some engineers and doctors over in London to create a machine that is going to be able to deliver oxygen to your lungs without needing a ventilator said. It's very similar to C. PAP machine But they are saying that if everything gets approved day can be producing up to a thousand of these per day a beginning next week. So hopefully that gets approved in. That'll be a great advancement because obviously we all have heard. That layers are combined right now. So let's keep our fingers crossed. They're posing leasing because one teams and engineers are so good at designing most technology anyways. So see what they put on the track. It's it's really not surprising. You think about it. That's good good for Mercedes Mine is going to be a quick shot to my buddy conner daily. He has been just lighting it up on his twitter stream and and some videos. He's been making for. I racing and whatnot so I just wanted to do. Quick shout the not only. Have you been racing really well? But more importantly he's been distributing a lot of laughs in than having a good time and it's easy for us to watch those videos and to smile and laugh with him so even up connor the laughs are are really appreciate right now and it's it's definitely making a difference in the morale of of a lot of your fans. Oh Yeah Connor Stream Sunday night. During the Elliott Racing Gateway motorsports park race was hilarious and super entertaining at around eleven. Thirty at night when? I probably should have been going to sleep. But it's definitely worth staying up late and I'll wrap it up with a shoutout to Max papis trying to help Robert Wickens get some Sim year setup for last weekend. Unfortunately it didn't arrive in on time in the end but you know at that point you're at the at the mercy of ups or wherever. They ended up shipping it through. But Robert's SIM equipment deal fell through somehow some way and Max built him a special steering wheel with hand controls for the throttle and brake as well in like a day or a day and a half so Real cool to see the more than just Max but the racing world come together and try to help Robert Al last minute to get him up and running for last weekend and it sounds like he should be running. This weekend. At Barbados was parked. So props to Max Pappas everybody else. Who helped Robert out in a time of need and he's GonNa win this week and he's GonNa win this week so I would not be disappointed if Robertson. That'd be awesome. I don't think anybody would know I'M I. Might shed a tear to if that happens well on that note guys. I think that's about it for the week unless we have anything else that I missed. Just go ahead and sign us off and guys keep your luck state and.

NFL is always huge college football NHL's big we've got to reduce reduce juice NHL supposed to be you know take big step back and and that has been the case in the nationals finally got it done the postseason they've been to the postseason race but they always flame jim good friend Dave Mason to the show Dave it's been a while we had a feeling guests last night bet online called in so it's been a while since you and I've caught up Buddy Wisconsin and Ohio state what are you game that is Notre Dame Michigan Penn State at Michigan State and then we got Major League Baseball play offs we got here in bolstering up their pitching staff even more I know the answers have been right up there with the favorites Formosa season along with you know the Yankees and the dodgers up for grabs depending on the week it looks like some teams the next best team and then they take a step back a lot of parody another disappointing team like the Eagles you know how they didn't show up the other night you know they're supposed to be one of the best teams in the NFC and they look very bad very inconsistent and very bad best football but are they that good will say the second half season their schedule gets a lot tougher so it arrest the NFL you know it's two teams we knew were good but you know I don't know that anybody really had Houston and Washington picked as kind of their two picks to go to the world series and you Kinda have to tread lightly when I hit him up bugging him so because they got so many hit on from every different angle well let's talk about the world series because I think this is I mean especially national stay with their more surprise team you know all year long they got rid of Bryce Harper and he went to the phillies and the phillies are supposed to be good in the nationals also the only really good team they played so far you know this week and they played for the browns so they're week schedule Definitely I mean goes both both teams are good for the House but the nationals we went about four times more money on its nationals one at all as opposed to the Astros yeah you know and you talked about Z. Crazy Line for plus I can't even remember what it was in favor of for the saints and I looked at that and I'm like you know I'm like I don't know what they're gonNA come up are undefeated sure they're killing everybody but that being said and again I'm not GonNa talk negative about the teachers because they're unbelievable best nfl franchise or diners now the first round of the wildcard or whatever but that pitching man it's great and speaking to pitching the Astros have they have you know that when they started making those trade and and I love betting early on in the season and looking at the entire thing because you know these things can change over the course of the season and we really don't know what teams are going to merge we've got uh you know there's been some teams we thought they were going to be really good this year that are struggling a bad I mean I think the rams are one of them but you know kind of take us through what's happening the NFL season everybody thought the cowboys are GonNa win and here comes the saints you know and should there's a few people out there that made some pretty good money off that game yeah well that was actual shoot I mean that was your people fifty you know I I've ever seen in my life But that being said that the record has ever not the record their schedule has has been extremely lackluster with the bill that's kind of probably thrown everybody for a little bit of a loop there in probably switched up Kinda betting in the way people are betting on the major league baseball playoffs Yeah well you know it's hey you know I might have a feeling about the team or something I mean here's when you can get in and you can get in relatively inexpensively but you know what I mean I think there's some really good odds in your favor he is but there's always that surprise team and I feel like early on in the season we're looking at with the NBA NHL Right now I mean if you've got some some inklings in the back of your mind about it oh good payout from your risk so and you know there's always hedging opportunities later on in the season that is if you you know if you pick the right team so we'll see you know Patrick mahomes and then the cheese they they start out like gangbusters look like they were going to be you know Patriots won a and they're going to be one bay and they take this four hundred so We took a lot of academic clippers this morning just from that one game that's how crazy just futures is and it's like one game or one one eight clippers they were plus for fifty co-favorites with the Lakers. I'm looking at that right now and they're big win over the Lakers last night there already with a quarterback you know what I mean but they're playing the cowboys and it was like I was like you know Outta Outta throw like forty fifty bucks at this because I think you know like if the Saints Somehow pulled off if you're predicting long-term and I it's one thing I love about the beginning of the season these futures is everything can be thrown up in the you know up in the air here just in even in short short amount of time at that game I mean that was a great game for the House I was the biggest winner of the season so far for the house everybody was on of cowboys that game so that that that game definitely yeah but I've been having some fun with that all right but yeah no it's it's at that time of year we get about one and a half week window year nights you know their expansion hockey team and I think they're like plus five hundred and low and behold they make the the the finals you know so and story trending on twitter and all of a sudden action pours in on one team so a lot of fun so it's a balancing act the whole year but these guys on the stage at just have to be a big step back and of course is hurt now so we'll see it makes me from betting though you know pretty unpredictable which is always good for the house too about the game first of all Teddy Bridgewater all he does cover and I forget what is record is against spread as a starter in the NFL don't crazy like twenty seven and nine up to bet on their oh absolutely I'm really looking forward to next week trait that the big pay per view cards can't wait awesome awesome card every day there's some new hot teams but the clippers rightful rightfully so that right plus learn favorites especially after last night yeah I'm looking at this list and I'm looking at the then you have all that money to hedge out so who knows man wears a couple of bucks longshots lottery tickets are always worth a couple of bucks you never know exactly and Info we let you go though I do know or something or maybe even better than that everybody back number this dude when he's under center I mean backup but when he plays all he do he covers a spread every time off et Cetera so a lot of fun and of course there's an USC Cart this weekend that main events going to be interesting so I'm looking forward to that Main event nate the as versus worry Matha Maskhadov minus one six favorite to take back on D. as plus one oh you know it's it's so and we love teachers too because that ensures people are GonNA win lose or they're going to be back months down the road so futures there was a couple of weeks back talk about the unpredictability and it was you know it was on the saints they lost breeze and they're playing the cowboys I think I looked in and it was a crazy I'm forty two so that I mean we're expecting this massive massive action on that way and you know all the rest of the fight's good to Darren till Kelvin Gasol Them Dot AG Promo Code podcast one and get a fifty percent sign up bonus thanks a lot dave thanks for having me all right we are going to continue on the conversation Mason with Bet online dot ag for calling in but yeah carry on the conversation talking sports talk in some indycar now with George Steinbrenner the fourth of Damian so to the best graphics out there probably the best Bj grappler MMA versus probably best wrestling I gotTa jump back here a little bit because I know there's been all kinds of you know there's been all kinds of new swirling and stuff like that you know youngest owner in Indycar and this and that but I gotta ask you in Indy Car with Colton and I guess Yankees in the playoffs as well man so probably probably all smiles on your end area nothing but smiles yeah so grappler and then I may so we'll see when they're A. B. J. J. or wrestling that's GonNa be interesting interesting chess match I think with that being said watching to stand fond memories as well you know and all that being said I know we gotTa Talk Futures Because I know NBA Nhl they're just getting started since guys beat the hell out of each other and I had to sit back on my couch popcorn out the truth well I appreciate the time Dave thank you for the support of the show I I've been having a lot aww fun on bet online dot Org and the site just playing some bets and you know and having a good time but I appreciate everything you do and you know definitely Our fans definitely go to bed online like to welcome one of my guests today to the show Mr George Steinbrenner man I guess right now it's probably a pretty good time to be you coming off a big win there at the Finale Chris Project action exclusively podcast warm.

family path and be like yeah yeah he would go down the baseball route but how how what was the draw of indy-car in auto racing for you because I know then aspirin who got be the quickest Nakas Vallecano ever few months back against the aforementioned or got much of a shot that going oh that might be worse than fun but I don't think it's going to happen for the sons issue yeah you'd never know that I mean like a couple of years ago with the Vegas Golden Yeah absolutely futures always popular way to bet you know you got your team you pinpoint who you think's GonNa win and you're GONNA get look at look back but yeah absolutely man and then as like almost Dang nightly event now there's all sorts of and so I I love it man I love the UFC matchup from seven years ago or something like that but they they fight they they they they definitely USA forget it I think you're WanNa get Michael I want a lot of money and then I was like Nah there's no way they're going to do it then they go and they beat the cowboys now admitted faking but like you talk the unpredictability it was one of those where I mean Adamy was any party you or I WANNA get behind the wheel or were you always kind of more drawn to kind of the executive role and things like that I was always more drawn to the exact going to the track and and being around the track and Sorta just grew up from it for it from a young age was there as you're taking all this in and things like that yeah I sort of starting that that transition effectively so far what kind of how you tell us I know obviously or something like that and I know it was very very far from that I mean I I know the story is you started with with her toe with Brian that program and I mean you've kind of done everything and work your way up more of an interest in in you know being being on the put it together side rather than the executing on the on the field or track side that's where most of my generation and a little before and a little after all sorts of live in the digital world now and You see that with Motors Horton now obviously with more fan engagement fan content on social media or or digital platforms and just trying to reach that demographic a year everything seems to continue to grow and grow and we found this growth in indycar where you know other forms of motorsports th they're hurting right now yeah and auto racing today where you're like I think we can do better I think we can make these changes in and kind of shift the culture that has been there for so long think he's coming to that point where INDYCAR and motoracing general has to sort of make that transition and I think that starts in the digital realm is the most important thing and if you can read them get them interested then they'll start to enjoy your product yeah well and I think you know honestly looking at all I guess forms of motorsports you mentioned Tony Run on being around eighty car and things like that but I think you've got an interesting story to or I think a lot of people would think with your last name just kind of came in and bought your way into India credit to Indycar for for SORTA trying their hardest to be at the forefront of it and it's obviously something that I have a great interest in is is sort of here in the United States I feel like India really in the last couple of years they've kind of been at the forefront of that movement and really kind of shifted gears and gone that way where other series it's just kind of been that way right but I feel like you coming in you know and and you know with your upbringing but also your age you've got kind of a different viewpoint I mean is there things you see yeah and I mean every generation or so sport Kinda has to adapt to the to the new generation that of sports fan worked many different jobs in you know in the auto racing industry and you're still very young yeah so like I always sort of a like even playing sports video games I spent more time on building the team that I did actually playing games so it sort of always had sir it's very much like baseball where things have been done a certain way for so long it's just kind of become that that's the way you do it nobody's really questioned it because how did that that door kind of open up and kind of how do we get where we're at today through Through Motor sports because I think your story is very interesting Kinda slow to adopt a feel like indycar really has been kind of on the bleeding edge and I think we're seeing numbers you know you hear things about Nascar things are dwindling indycar and you know Europe yeah I think that's kind of interesting too because you know with your age and things like that I think you look at auto racing general and I think a lot of in a lottery guard I saw thirty years ago and became friends stayed friends now they're business partners in that in the MC program what was the rallycross program during the started with Brian I've known Brian for many years Through my Stepfather Sean Jones who they they'd race each other in in barber the touring car program and Yeah I went to intern because I wanted to get involved in racing I wanted to work in racing I wanted to move had to reach my demographic try and tell people my age and show people my age how cool motoracing is now cool indycar racing and yeah the the credit it was Kinda like drinking through a fire hose working in rally cross it's very intense over the course of a race weekend a lot of stuff to do a lot of things get broken and do what I wanted to do for ten years at that point and so yeah that's where I got my start it's it's it was things you know a lot of things changed a lot of late nights at the track so yeah it was a great way to to learn and gain experience right out of the gate well then how did this opportunity you know open up and we'll go into kind of the announcement came out with Andretti here a couple of weeks ago but you know kind of take us through this announcement and jumping in with both right I mean obviously you know Colton this kid is you know he's been kind of a prodigy for a long time everybody knew he was going to be good I don't know that anybody knew is going to be this good this quick but how opportunity for this season actually open up and bring bring Colton and you know and and with harding and how how did this get put together for this season because I think that was one of those where honestly got a Lotta people off guard they're like oh wow man this is a big move yeah it started really in indy lights when when Colton wanted to move over the team and partnered with Andretti for those first two years and obviously it was a it was an incredible place to be obviously especially in indy lights and then after issue this twenty nineteen season partnering with Mike Harding who had an existing program of a year and Andretti based on again Bryan Herta and knowing some of the people from Andretti before and and and it sort of became an easy home to find how they built that program to be really the dominant force in Indy Lights and so we knew that's where we wanted to put golden and we had a somewhat of a relationship with it forming sort of sort of more or less continuing the relationship with Andretti with the Andretti technologies partnership that we had this year and sort of relatives agent and so working on a way to to to keep them from from finding another place to drive a big part of it was was a natural home when we were trying to figure out how to keep cold you know once Rossi signed back with Andretti Colon became the the hot commodity the new big free we staying under that tent or or next to that tent and it sort of lended itself to being a a from you know these guys that have won so many races Oh yeah and and being able to surround myself at a young age is sort of been the goal in Europe because he he didn't want to do the F one round he wanted to be an indycar driver WanNa be like his dad so it started there when we formed them with all their public relations and client services folks and and so I I got to see sort of the indepth view of how they operate forming this partnership and and putting the best possible scenario for him next year and beyond to to compete for championship one in is us a sort of showed him throughout those years of trying to learn as much as I could from him and then then meeting Michael Andretti Jay Foreman team owner. I mean that's gotTa be pretty excited to continue that relationship with Andretti because you know you've mentioned working with Brian and now you know with handwriting being part partnered with Andretti delights I got to see a little bit of how they operated on the indy-car side and then building that relationship with their commercials and then you know being able to partner with them again getting to see even more in depth how they operate on it became just a a huge ecosystem of people to learn from into to get experience from people who I think one for a partner then would have been twenty twenty five years ago and yeah it's a great learning experience as as sort of the whole partnership has been two three hours before the race it was a lot of nerves yeah a lot of high heart rate stuff like that just the company's value I mean and how how's your coach this I mean are you taking you know the business side of Indie Carl in yeah obviously it it it ended pretty quickly unfortunately with the with fuel pump issue but yeah it the whole pre-race a whole black learn a lot from how does the money hunt affect you know indycar and things like that because I mean you know at the end of the day you know they're sponsored dollars and things like that and obviously the TV time and now there's so much with the business to business in and you know there's so many things that go into finding funding for an INDYCAR team you know behind the scenes and and bringing those to start surround myself with as many people I can learn from as possible Started with Brian Heard a ten years ago when I first met him and all these I mean I got to think for a guy like you I mean you know to be able to be around some of the best in the business like you have I mean that's gotta be exciting for you just with everything you're going to be able to absorb car it's learn the INS and outs of how it'd be how indycar teams have creative now with with how they approach partnerships and commercial sponsors social side sort of how how they get creative nowadays with with Business Business Partnerships experiential marketing sort of creating a different experience Yeah Yeah Yeah especially this year being my first five hundred it's it was sort of just as surreal feeling Rob Edwards the whole Andretti crew and then this last year with with people like Brian Bernhardt now once or junior on the on the harding side on the hurting summerside it's being able to be in a in a pit box watching it was really cool surreal experience and something I hope doesn't fade with more and more five hundred I hope I still get that sort of butterflies feeling every time but yeah the first time was something spectacular well you know let's you know and approach this you know because like you said earlier I mean we're a complete different day and age where you know fifteen twenty years ago is just all about that logo on the side of the car and things like that probably executed really well on track and and and into the engineering room and so We thought that would more or less be a successful weekend so I gotta ask you walk in Indianapolis Motor speedway and you've been fortunate to to walk into Yankee Stadium many times and you know I mean you look at the world series look at the indy five hundred I mean bind eighty eighty races and indycar and spent maybe a total of one hundred years in the sport so just a lot of acting were you know maybe compete for top ten's You know we finished seventh eighth on a weekend we're feeling pretty darn good about ourselves and we radio sports been phenomenal it at finding you know funding and and you know able to keep operations going whereas a lot of teams who've seen struggle but you know how is that let's go back and talk a little bit about Colton because I know you've been you know you've played a big part in his career I mean you know we gotta talk about this season though because I know I think it was preseason testing then preseason cast test and came along he led the first to practice or testing sessions on day one then with first and second on the two sort of a strange feeling and then win the next race was incredible entirely above our expectations and so dissipation a crazy just sort of soaking in all the all the pomp and circumstance tradition that I'd love my entire life the pre-race and then be with the folks inside because I worked out of the Andretti office those two years in indy lights so I got sort of the the in depth look at I mean shared I had a cubicle in the what's what's what kind of feeling you get in in both I mean is it comparable to walk into Yankee Stadium when game seven in the world series is happening or like caught off guard Oh wow this this kid is the real deal and then you know and obviously taken that victory just come off victory I mean you know he's had polls I mean he's run up go really the only goal is is to compete to put a car out there that can win and whether that's one car to Kars it's not a regular strange jumbled test session whereas sort of you're sitting in third and maybe we're third maybe we're twelfth who knows but Ronnie's had just wicked wicked speed even at the indy five hundred you know and you know you guys have to just be thrilled with where he's Adamy you know what were the expectations coming into this year because I expected being podium positions maybe five and yeah it jus- completely shifted our expectation so we we would know if we executed ah five hundred when it's Memorial Day weekend and things are getting ready to fire up there you get the same kind of kind of excitement in rush three cars whichever amount of cards to make that happen is the amount of cars that will have yeah so you know all that being said man I know what you got yeah we it kind of ramped up our expectations we did we didn't want it since it was still testing we didn't want to get too carried away and then Saint Pete right out of the bay well if we finished in the top five and and we we had a couple mistakes we had a lot of mechanical issues a lot of you know lapses and gate we were fast and then yeah just missed out of the fast six because of penalty and and all things considered we finish eight and before taken about year by year and kind of seeing what comes out you guys yeah that's that's the way you Kinda have to do it and I could sit here and say you know in three years business or are you pretty pretty content over here on the auto racing side of things one hundred percent I've always had a love for baseball just as much as I've had a love racing next year and I mean even further down the line I mean what what's the plans for you and Indycar obviously you know you've got this program with Colton and and it's been phenomenal so far I mean what are the laws ability down the road I'd like to be involved in in Indycar as long as I can regardless of

Learning More About Rinus Veekay with Dutch Motorsport Jouranlist Jeroen Demmendaal

"Uh-huh yeah welcome to another episode of Tame Parlay in addition here. I am joined by Dutch reporter. Your own your own. Thanks for taking some time out of your evening. Tsk to talk a little bit about Rina's vk yeah. Thank you thank you for having me Real quick I know you have A couple podcasts. That you're Ron. I want to give you a chance to kind of show. You know where people can find your work Yeah we'll I mostly on twitter. You can find me on my handle. Mr Doll The thing is that both my podcasts are in Dutch so I think And much much use to your listeners. but I do Formula One podcast And then today actually we launched the very first Dutch language INDYCAR podcasts Coinciding with would renew his announcement awesome. That's that's great news news. I'm glad to glad to hear there's some coverage over there and We will definitely put the links to that if we have any Dutch speakers is here and I'm sure I'm sure they'll check it out so with that being said we're here to talk Arenas vk for a little bit You know his background probably better better than a lot of people. So what are what should people expect from arenas vk the driver Well what always struck me about. Arenas this is. I mean one thing that people should get. He's only nineteen years old But he drives like a veteran He has his amazing ability of getting into a car that he doesn't doesn't know Very quickly find the limit of that car And do that while basically making no mistakes or driving. Any damage whatsoever I mean those of you who have followed him on the road to indy will not in use of two thousand in Pro Mazda in indy lights immediately. Got Up to speed beat Immediately fought for for winds for podiums for championships An old while while almost Kosei not not causing any damage not getting into any trouble And I fully expected to do the same thing when he gets to the NTT indycar series. It's so before I go more on. Arenas you know we have a pretty interesting rookie battle between him and Oliver ask you Obviously they both progressed up. The Roads Indy ladder at the same time. So if you're if you're going to look into your crystal ball. Do we have a a one amazing rookie of the year battle on our hands here. Absolutely I mean it's I think the two thousand twenty indycar series season has a lot of great stories east but this is one of the main great stories for me I mean as you know. Both rain is an oliver have been fighting each other since they were in. Go karts They continued about along the zero two in the You know Yussef it was it. Was I ask you a won the title in Pro Mazda and delights. Ask you one out again It's it's going to be a hell of a rookie of the year fight and I really can't wait to to see how that will play out And I honestly I wouldn't know how it will play out Because they're both incredibly good. Yeah it's it's pretty interesting to think about your last year we had Colton versus Felix Rosenquist has kind of the the top two favorites bernal year. And you know they were gassy and Andretti driver. Essentially Andretti driver this year. It's kind of to Middle Tier Teams in Ed Carpenter the and Arrow McLaren Schmidt Peterson. So ma'am very curious to see how how both does we'll do but you know back to Rina's take us through kind of his. Is You know racing career up to you. Know the roads India. No you know he race before that and pretty much everywhere. He's been as far as I can see. He's been quite successful. Yeah he has I mean he was. He was starring carting most successful race. Drivers are But the interesting thing is of course. I mean he's a Dutchman so he comes from Europe and most young European drivers then decides to full of the European racing ladder right so you start in formula four to formula three until I mental He he deliberately decided to come to America I think that was a very smart decision Because of course you know. There's IT's more crowded here in Europe there's there's maybe some more money to go around but there's also a lot more People fighting for those sponsorship funds And I think he made A smart move in America because America has the the scholarship program. That's what makes to retain the in my view such a great program And and he really he really felt like you know if I can if I can make it there then I got a clear path to war. If you know the highest level of open raising in America which is the INDYCAR series And Yeah I mean he He fulda plan almost to perfection. So He's got some pretty big sponsors behind him in jumbo. Oh and LA place and a couple others. How did how does How did he get hooked in with them? I think you know at least jumbo has been with him for quite some time in the in the sponsorship world. Yeah well the thing. Would we jumbos at his His father Rina's father is is pretty good pals else with the CEO of Of Jumbo 'cause readings his father used to be a race car driver And CEO Yumbo. He is a motor sports fan And and also Drives racecars in his free time. Really he has a Wiltz endurance championship team in which he's one of the drivers So I mean I. Don't I know the INS and outs but It it's pretty clear indeed that's Pretty early on in readings his career. They decided sort of like you know. This is a kid that we want to support Jimbo has a way of finding these. These standout talents They also do road cycling. Speed Skating Where they where they I find these talents and they really back up and then hope to sort of just taking the top And that's what they were doing. Rene's now as well and as long as readings delivers today. They help him out there. They seem You know very involved in motor sports. I think they're pretty big MACs verse death and sponsors as well. Yeah their personal sponsor from extra step as well and eat eight And an extra step in the holiday shows up in television ads for Yumbo because you almost one of the biggest grocery chains in Holland So yeah I mean I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere next year we see Join during his EEK Max Apple. TV At for Jumbo. I think that would do wonders for Indycar. TV maybe numbers Speaking of which Since you you brought it up is Is there a TV contracts over in the Netherlands and yes there is a location for people to watch. INDYCAR yeah there is. I mean I think that's one of the benefits because the it's a pay TV channel. Um in debt broadcasts both Formula One and Indycar and I think especially following you know recent years when Max's step and release starts becoming a star and former the one there's been quite a few few Dutch motorsport friends who've been thinking. Well okay. This is cool. What else is there And so quite a few people still a niche interest with quite a few people have have discovered discovered indycar racing and the competition of it I mean especially if you compare it with The sometimes more timid goings on in Formula One special earlier in the season And now of course like I say I mean Dutch are if anything. They're they're they're very chauvinistic. They really support their countrymen. So so I expect The interest in indycar racing to really take off next year as it has done in Sweden when when Ericsson rosenquist jumped in this year. Yeah it was. It's it's funny you mentioned that When when Ericsson and Rosenquist officially joined indy-car we noticed that we were starting to get more listeners from from Sweden So I I hope. Hopefully the Dutch fans out there start listening here as well in addition to your language podcast so so you know Rina's as a driver you know. There are guys like Scott Dixon who are very methodical in their approach. In you know come from last to first like it's no big deal. We have been super aggressive drivers. Maybe like a Colton Herder Santino for RUCCI where does this fit in for those. Who Haven't watched much of the road to indy in terms forms of Driving style. Well the thing is I remember a few years ago. Somebody asked him blinking. Who Do you see any of your As an example simple for you and then he named two names which was Simon Passion Oh and are relying dyke of course you know the the Dutch racing legend who sort of also says a as a coach coach for him and I think there's there's a lot of similarities there Rena says pretty calculated in his driving He doesn't take unnecessary risks He he plays a long game right. I mean if he knows that he is in a race and he just doesn't have a race winning car under him He'll settle for second and third and just bringing the car home rather than do do a do-or-die move leads to say so. I think he's east again. Despite his age he drives like a veteran he dries very smart And as a result of that sort of like I say you almost finish his racist so I think that that is the approach that you'll you'll see from him this This coming season as well and I think that's a great spot to be in for a rookie drivers to take the methodical approach. You know being part of Ed carpenter racing means he's probably going to qualify. Pretty well at the indy. Five hundred the what has Arenas his experiences. So far on ovals been life for him through the freedom them one hundred and Down in the in the Lower Road Dandy Over at The Indianapolis Raceway Park well. I think it's definitely Khalidi. ovals is definitely where his biggest learning curve will be right. I mean It's it's especially in the road to you don't drive too many oval races And then and of course I mean getting a car dialed improperly on the year mother speedway. It's a hell of a job. I think it will be great for him that he is with carpenter. Racing Team so good on the oval races especially I think he can learn a hell of a lot from from somebody like carpenter And End Yeah I mean again. I think he'll just like you just mentioned I think he will take that very methodical approach and disorder slowly but surely Find his feet there. hopefully Like you said he will qualify Welland race while awesome. We'll wrap it up with one more thing. I was curious about here I know you mentioned Rina's Dad Raced at one point but it seems like in general. He's got a an extremely support. A family you know that travels I mean I think I saw them at every track this year So you know is is that something. That's you know helpful to him to have that support system the travel with him week in week out I'm I imagine maybe sometimes it might be distracting when dad is trying to give you advice in nineteen year old but I I think I think for him. I think it's just it's it's a comfort factor during its sort of who've been around for him all his life. It's the people who've been supporting him all his life Like you say they travel with him to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean to sort of support. His career So I I can't imagine that would be a distraction for him. I think it would be a source of energy and a source of of motivation trim and say sorts of support which which makes himself you know? Feel at ease and just you know. He doesn't have to worry he knows they'll they always have his back And I think I think it's an it's an upset very much upside so yeah that's great. I I know at nineteen. I often did not take the advice of my dad's much smarter than At nineteen then I was so oh great for his family and anybody who who else support him. It seems like he's got a really good. Yeah support system between his manager and and every involved obviously obviously having Ari Lion Dyke. Is your driver. Coaches is never doesn't Doesn't hurt I might have gone somewhere if I had him as my racing coach when I was doing go karts at nine years old. Yeah exactly Well with that we will We'll wrap this up. Just wanted to give everybody a little bit of insight on the newest indycar rookie From my man urine here urine. I appreciate the time I will I'll put your podcast link in our Show notes so people can Check it out if if they understand Dutch if not they can follow along anyway And Yeah exactly and I appreciate you you coming on and spending some time with me Today or tonight over Over in Sweden where you are so thank you very much sir and look forward to talking again throughout the season.

In the head so I I Tom Right through it I think I was going through the only past the Smith box. Yeah, yeah, and you had intermittent radio communication as well but it. You know what it's good to get all these little finagling things that happen out of the way in the first race, right? It was a was. It was a baptism by fire, but like you said it's good to get. It's better to have had to kind of frontload that stuff, and then nobody can go into road America knowing. Hey, you get to the right now. Water I can get through it without the radio. You know we can work through these things now. The thing that that had to be a big adjustment as the simple fact that it was darn hot on that weekend in the cowling around the cockpit. Now some of the drivers were complaining about the heat. Others were not. How did you? You find it especially understanding that this race is about three times longer than anything you didn't like it was. It was very hot and American units and Fahrenheit with ninety five, and probably a hundred and ten plus in the cockpit, and maybe a little more than it was. It was boiling, but you know I have to give credit. Where credit's due and the you know, the guys I try, and what type of training did a great job getting prepared for this debut, and even without the water I really didn't feel physically like I was ever lacking in in the car, the. Blast, five laps of the race for some dehydrates certain set in. And, just without having your drink, too, but we were. You know we've been working really hard.

Is it going to be extra rigorous to do these things back to back? How do you look at this? It'll certainly be rigorous, but the way I look at it is that you know with the way that everything's been going with the world and all that right now it's more everything. We're just lucky to be going racing and you're right. Yeah, it'll be hard, but I'd rather be physically exerting myself in a race. Race car than sit at home. Yeah, well, Yeah I. Think you. You pretty much nailed it for anybody. Who's WHO's you know considering that situation? But now that you've been at the brickyard of the world famous Indianapolis, motor, speedway, the most famous race course in the world, and you've done some combat on the road course I gotta think that anybody like yourself.

We're in regular contact. Contact on social media as well. He's a fascinating guy, very talented dude, as well e T. he says just wonder what you thought of the new look. NASCAR stock cars with the lights on the side numbers pushed back takes a little getting used to. Doesn't it well as Senate back here and being as abrupt as I think. I need to be I think it's terrible. It's junk. It's just me you may like it. The kids seem to enjoy it, but they like that that gopher coming up whatever it was They got rid of that Pretty Soon Fox tried this. If you remember not that long ago with hockey, you know they were convinced that American fans couldn't follow the game that well, because the puck is too small, and they couldn't see to partly put that glowing halo light around the thing the abandoned that pretty quick and. and. I'm hoping that they just did this. As an experiment NASCAR did and Fox or a because it was the all-star event and did it jazz it up. No, I thought it junked it up. I know they had different colors. Ford is blue, and you know Toyota's one color and chevys and other color. I don't I don't care. It's it's a gimmick I'm never been a fan of gimmicks. I mean NASCAR does enough gimmickry with their contrived finishes the Green White Checker. checker stuff giving guys back lapse that they haven't earned stage racing. ETC, etc, they've really gotten away from the basic part of it for better for worse. Yeah, I know there are underway and what have you, but it's a one side of NASCAR. I've never liked his all the gimmicks. Just get them out there and put the show on. You don't need stage, racing or anything else to try to make the show better. The show was fine as it was. You know it? It hasn't improved the show to put stage racing in, and all the the contrived finish can't possibly finish a race under yellow, even though less than two percent of races ever finish under yellow and the glowing lights under the cars, I hope is only an experiment, and they get rid of it after that experiment, anyway finisher contest entries or comments.

Schumacher this race line presented by Subaru for more on the sports coupe. Go to Subaru, DOT CA slash VCR. This is no race line radio network. Jenson Button and you're listening to race line. Radio Canada's National Radio Motorsport Authority at Twenty eighth consecutive season on the air across Canada. And we are the radio network. The National Hot Rod Association Rolling Again with back to back shows Indianapolis. Raceway park interested in the news. They're going to add another one because they've had to postpone a couple of events. Further down the schedule coming back to competition for the twin bill, one of the best ever in top fuel and eight time champion with eighty four career top fuel windsor, coming back the man they call the sarge talking about the development of canopy cars, as he arrived at Indianapolis par to Tony Schumacher on race line radio, but do you think the Nhra should mandate that these things all be can be cars that they should just make this thing mandatory. Had I've been asked that so many times that. You. Know I wouldn't drive without it, but there are people who may leave the sport and made just disagree you know and. And you know there's a lot of conflict between some of the teams. You know anything we do. They just won't do because we do it. I understand that. Vice versa, too. You know the way we are firesuits. Our helmets, we all have what we think is the best our research and our people and we're going to battle that on so making it mandatory I think I think owner can make it mandatory if he'd like for in bribery. But, if any trace steps in and mandate, something like that and something goes wrong, you know. They got liability. I'm not a lawyer I'm sure not smart enough to be able to decide if they should mandate people do that. I understand and the last time we had you on the show, you know. They were reducing the length of the drag strip. It's a thousand feet now, not a quarter mile. Mile, but you know something. We're still sub four second teas and better than three hundred and thirty five miles an hour pretty much consistently pretty amazing. When you think that you're still getting speeds, an et's like that and they've shortened the race track. It's an amazing amount of power, but amazing technology to that you guys still haven't suffered in the numbers, even though they have shortened the track well, yeah. And I think they just made it better, racing and people. They'll argue all the time. You don't want to be quarter, mile. When tracks were built, cars are going two hundred plus miles, an hour and other at mid thirties and two football fields per second almost exactly when you make a mistake in your second late on a parachute or the car. Thriller. Shoot doesn't open. You know we don't want to lose drivers it's. It is the greatest entertainment greatest sport in the world, but you just little entertainment and we got to protect the best we can't. We do understand what we get in a race car. There's risk was on three hundred plus miles an hour in three seconds. We get all the risks we get. We don't get in the car and kid ourselves. We're doing a safest possible job in the world, but we try to make it so that fans don't have to win or something like that and I think the rating itself has gotten better because whenever a quarter mile the extra three hundred plus feet. We were just blowing stuff up there anyway through. Racing the thousand feet we have learned to contain the parts and pieces better, and and make them laugh all the way, the finish line, and let's face it if we want to keep racing. We need to keep the cost as low as we can. The more stuff we blew up the more expensive as owners just can't keep hitting that bill. It's no big dollar. Dollar part piece when we blow that ended up. Good points. All of them is safe to say that one of the things you really missed in your time away. Was your interaction with the fans? You were always one of the favorites. Yeah, this is GonNa hurt almost like testing. We're not allowed to be too close for not allowed to do that the normal. That's right. Voted Graphs, and you know and and talk about reasonable we love the most is able to talk about what we do. It's a cool job. It's a cool lifestyle. We can't even get close enough to communicate, but it'll get better. We got to understand that we gotta keep the sport alive. We gotTA keep it moving for you know. Keep the Fox numbers up and then we'll get back. We'll get back to normal some point. Nothing like this last forever. It's just a pain in the butt. We'll get through squad and get some racist and get some points in your part of our guys can't win a championship exactly, and it's anyway you can go about it really. You talked about cost containment in one of the disturbing bulletins going into this weekend, and you mentioned the forest team and John Force racing, not making the deadline for all kinds of stories about sponsorship. Heck, we know you guys. You know struggle to get money to do what you WanNa, do not. Not Having Britney, there is a former champion or just seeing anybody with the prestige in the history of John Not being at an event. I don't want to talk about a Downer here. Tony, but that's that's A. that's a bit of an abrupt thing to deal with. When you know that the forest guys aren't going to be there. It is and I've never had a chance to run against Austin Austin product, a great driver, one of the young and up and coming guys and Britney me and her always loved battling each other so. It it is but I do understand. This is an expensive sport for the fans out there kid or write a check for a million bucks over as you probably wouldn't do it. You know. We're we're our job is to build companies and get the right names out there in due in a great way, which John Force has always been the absolute best that, and if for some reason, whatever company is struggling, let's say a lot of companies out there hurting right now, so that's when he those companies to get back to their strength, so they can continue on, and if if sitting eraser tour, the season I don't know what their plan is. Is I just read what you've read, but whatever it is, they can get back to in next year. That's better than trying to rush it and not be able to come back next yourself to appreciate what they're doing. I appreciate how much John Forces built this sport and Britain and you know awesome coming up and I think all of us were just doing our best. None of us really know for fighting through our best, and we're trying to put. Put on a good show that people do care and do WANNA walk, it's it's very good, though too that you guys are getting going with the fact that while the stick and ball sports are struggling to get going, and we still don't know they're definitely going to get going around this covert nineteen thing the fact of the matter was that the racing game. You Know Nascar Formula One indycar all of that stuff you in some of the dirt tracks. Tracks stuff decided that yet, we we're going to get going here. Be Very careful, and we've had a couple of instances, though were guys have come up with this disease, and that's not a good thing, and you know we. We really hope that that's not gonNA have a sad ending here, but it's good that our game was first out of the gate, and so far for the most part I think we've done a responsibly would agree with that Tony. PERCENT! Read Eagle, letters from both. Nature an hour. We're going to do this. We're GONNA. Follow it by the book. Because you know my my job is to win for my father and keep everyone who safe is I can possibly make you know we. We can't get it every outcome. The best thing we can do is follow the rules, and maybe even go little beyond that. Just be be careful, you know. Know and you know that our sport has always been one of up close and personal, but for a little while we got to maintain some distance and do what's right. Do do people much much smarter than us? Telling us to do so to get in those race cars were safest in those cars I think right now that nitromethane auderburn anything away though it's pretty good stuff. There's nothing like nitro. We all know that into Yeah I. Ask every driver that I interviewed during this Covid, nineteen thing and I've interviewed a lot of them I trust you and the family are well. Everybody's safe and again you know being as socially distance and responsible as you possibly can Tony Oh. Absolutely we're doing. We're doing great. You know have a bunch of kids running around here. My my kids swim in our pool. We keep them keep them mostly lockdown now. You can't watch them every single minute, but you do your best. You can talk to it and they got news channels to. They get to watch, and they can figure out you know, so. We're good I mean I. I love I understand. We got a issue. We all talked about it and we do the best we can do. Maintain our sanity the best we can and I think this week's going to be exciting I. Hope that after this weekend they go. That worked well. Let's continue wander more. Oh, yeah, yeah, you know, and we go off and can get to abandon. Mir track. We'll see. My job is to raise the next two races.

IndyCar CEO Mark Miles - The push for a third manufacturer

"Sport podcast today another interview with sports leader. Windy, because being in the news recently with an exciting new street rates for two thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one announced in Nashville under the ownership of American racing legend Roger Penske, but the series on the iconic Indianapolis Motor speedway have the foundations of a strong future ahead. So what does that future look like I'm what are the threats beyond the current pandemic in the latest about Hashtag thinking forward interviews in decals? CEO Mark. Miles talks about the push to get a third manufacturer into the series and how. The sport will shape is digital future beyond many a television amongst other topics. Here he is talking to our James Allen well, listen. Thank you so much for making the time to join us for this Hashtag thinking forward today oversee Indiana's been very much in the news. Recently, they will get on to talk about your exciting new event in in Nashville and of course, the the five hundred you had recently, but maybe we could stop, could you sum up? You think the appeal of indicator to the audiences. Well I have the chance as you said in Nashville Tennessee yesterday and announcing that the indycar series will include a a street event in Nashville. Next year to answer that very question for me. INDYCAR racing is fast. We've loved the diversity that we race on ovals and you know super speedways as well as short ovals. We race on permanent road courses we and we race on temporary street circuits and I think that that diversity is really interesting and a great draw for for our fans. Were very competitive in that. That means a few things that means that literally a driver can start in the back of the grid and win the race and that's not something we aspire to see. It happens any number of drivers lead the championship compete in the championship serious contenders Little teams can compete with big teams and then on the grid during a race, you know it's wheel-to-wheel There's passing. And I just think that is always something we can expect today in in the in racing and so great. Great attributes of indycar racing. The other thing is you know our drivers. So we've got the same sort of mix from really outstanding young. Rookies or or young drivers and established veterans, and they go wheel-to-wheel and. About half the drivers are from outside the US Hafer from here. and. So I I, think we've got something for for everybody who has any interest in motor store Obviously. This strand is pulled thinking forward one. We think forward about Indycar from where we are now, we're in the early stages of the of the ownership. By penske. An owner obviously that really understands the US scene from having been involved in for such a long time particularly cars. My wonder, what is the Vision for shaping the sport now for the future? We'll. For now we're still very focused frankly on North America the US in North America, we've had opportunities to consider racing abroad. for now, I think the the answer to those increases. Now, we're going to focus on the USO drill down and really accomplish everything we can in the US market. We are already with all due respect to Formula One I think in the states where the dominant Open Open, wheel series and how and what more can we do that so that's going to mean. In the short term, we're not looking to see how many races we can have. We want to have been very successful events wherever we race. And I do believe that the announcement Nashville is pretends. great things for for the series an addition beginning next year. diversity is important to us. We we want to to be welcoming and extend. The invitation to be part of the series. To. Folks all backgrounds and not just as fans but certainly fans but also in terms of our hiring practices, our own procurement, and ultimately the composition of teams and drivers. So that's something that we're working on very quietly now but I think there'll be some progress and some. Tangible evidence of that hopefully next year. The car will evolve a Obviously, we want to continue to have real passing and great racing. but we'll also look at. The possibility of a at least third OEM. And that'll that's a challenge but it's something that Roger Penske I think is maybe uniquely in the world able to to To be successful in if if it can be done. and. There's some other technical changes that will that will occur I. Think. Not Not next year, not in twenty, twenty two but a few years out that take years to develop. So there's lots look forward to. It's interesting what you say about about manufacturers and Novice Roger Penske's position that because one of the things we're hearing from ladies discussing leaders throughout the series is to look at the participation of manufacturers in top level motorsport in the future because of this period, this Kobe period has been extremely difficult for manufacturers. It's very clear what the rationale is for manufacturers to be involved in Motorsport from a technology development point of view and honesty a marketing point of view. But do you see that rationale changing in any way and? Are. You concerned about the level of investment from manufacturers going forward as a result of of the twenty twenty crisis? Yeah. Well, obviously it's. Hard to imagine a tougher time to have that conversation. Happily, we've been working on it for a while. So there are a number of manufacturers that no our story and have been able to to watch our progress So I guess it's a bit of a speed bump. Kobe that is but You know, I, I don't think the basic premise is going to change i. think it is what you said. It's a development opportunity and certainly particularly in the US market, it's marketing opportunity and finally I think. The value proposition for INDYCAR is amazing. So I. Look at the cost. To be in a Formula One or to be in even, NASCAR. From my perspective on sort of CPM basis how many eyeballs get in front of the cost to have a team or to sorry to be a manufacturer with. Maybe a third of the teams I think it's a great value proposition and I think that. We've seen that being understood in our conversations. Speaking of CPM's of the digital piece has been very important for Formula One in its growth. Since since liberty media took over and in particular finding new audiences, it actually has a data point that fifty two percent of new fans since liberty took over are under thirty five. I. Wonder How he's Indycar setting strategy when it comes to finding new and younger audiences. Well, I have to say, I, think. Limiting media formula done a great job in that regard they've invested showing that it can work in they're having success. So I don't know that we're GONNA invent a new model will be going down that asked. You know we are. Beholden to to linear media in this country for most of our live race exposure I, think in the next couple of years the whole architecture will change and particularly with some many subscribers in cable. Leaving cable streaming is got to take on a much greater importance. In our primary market US LINEAR coverage will for for hot for I don't know how long deliver the biggest audiences but But. Streaming will have a more and more important role and internationally. As. You may know we we do believe that that will be true to some extent in a number of our key markets but for a whole lot of the world streaming is really our best opportunity and I think you'll see doing much more in that regard. Obviously racing started up in the US earlier than it did in other parts of the world coming out of the of the lockdown. Think Nascar first and then Indika. What was the response like to that and what's the outlook there in the US embassy you still suffering very high covid numbers. Yeah You know it was eerie for lack of a better word when we first went back are you know we canceled while when we were already in Saint Petersburg, Florida our first race? The things just took off the events caught up with everybody I think in the states. Net mid March weekend. And then it was the first week in June. When we raced we I came back in Texas on the oval there without fans and you know the focus was very much on. Keeping our competitors the people who have to be there in the paddock safe and we've we've touched. Would it's it's gone very very well, but it's it's not by chance the teams day in and day out when we're not at tracks and everything that goes on at detract since then since the beginning of June has been quite You know. Robustly enforced and That enforcement may be the wrong word because the team's really understand the importance of it if we can't get. The participants to the track safely than we don't have a series so But that's gone very well it continues to be a focus. It will be for the rest of our urea three more racists left two of them in Indianapolis. when the fans I started coming back then you go through this next phase of. Kind of how weird it is to have a relatively small number of people in the crowd. And in some of those races like Road America and Mid Ohio last weekend where they're largely wooded campgrounds. However many people you have they're spread out by by. Nature of the of the venue. And And so it was pretty graceful way to bring fans back. We'll be announcing what will have in the way of crowds for our harvest. Grand. Prix doubleheader beginning of October here in Indianapolis there will be fans they will not. Approach the capacity of this venue, but nevertheless it'll. It'll be more than we've had probably sports in this city at that point. and. Then the finale will be in Saint Petersburg Florida. We still don't know to what fans will be. Able to participate so. It is a psychologically, it's A. An odd strange off-putting sort of process and and and environment. But for the racers racing right and they they keep themselves safe and then they do what they do and. Of course, we'd rather have fans one one of the great attributes I think of Indycar that failed to mention his accessible we are. And so when we do have fans there right there they're in the usually in the garage and paddock area and our drivers are very happy to sign autographs and be be be quite proximate to fans. So we really do miss that. Speaking of accessibility obviously east boats has has really opened up a lot of. motorsports over this over this period. Not only that two people can discover this both for the first time through east coast particularly young road insisted in many cases can actually race against the racist themselves with so many great examples about what what's your own appreciation of of what the east boats period the virtual season if you like did for if a motorsport in general and for any particular. Well, it created the opportunity to put these sports out and so again in this country, in the US we six events in five were on linear television so and they did pretty well in in terms of the audience. I think there's a future for sure and I expected it will grow frankly in many examples, it's it's investment for the sport which one would like to make where it is in the pecking order in our growth remains to be seen. We'd like to get to the place where there isn't any car title. For a great game, a compelling game and then we can really see what the what the uptake is. The first thing is the title that's a significant. Hurdle in an of itself but in we've had events than we have had many not just the ones in this cove season two previously the drivers love it. Our guys really liked to like to be out there. They liked to compete with the public and and so I think there's an opportunity there for sure. Bring back to the what we're saying at the beginning of the conversation about about this exciting new event in Nashville, and you were saying that one of the kind of key. Attractions of indycar is the variety between st coasts as Nashville is going to be the road coast is in the ovals. How do you find that balance and then I was I was lucky enough to cover the series back in Nineteen ninety-four when Nigel. Mansell was over there I spent a year traveling around I, thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and the diversity of the different venues was was really very striking and I was always fascinated about about the balance between the different types of circuits. Wha, what is the right balance and how do you work it out? We don't have a quota, but we think the balance is important to us, and so we just very deliberately think about. How to keep it how to how to maintain the balance and it isn't a precise, but it's been more last third a third a third if you accept the definition of those three disciplines. Of quite frankly. You know. ovals. Are are never in the middle of city, Indianapolis maybe the exception and so I think they're tougher in some respects. Indycar fans love oval racing. It's fastest and it's Most hair racing I'm sure. But but then to attract fans to go. You know maybe thirty sixty minutes from the city. Is, increasingly, a challenge because there's so much competition in sports entertainment. So after work really hard on that Streets I. Love because to me like in Nashville case when we put it right in the middle of the city as we do in Saint Petersburg. Florida. In Long Beach California it takes over the city I mean it's so it's it's like Monaco I used to live there and appreciate for one event How just captivates the entire community can't be missed that's the nature restraint, but they're hard to do you have to find. The right combination of elements that will accept disruption when it happens, it's really compelling because it just shows office city and captures the imagination of its public so well so that that's hard but we love them, and then road courses are easier. You know the somebody's already made the investment and we know where those tracks are and it's really a matter of Of of up embracing them in a way that balances with the other two formats. You mentioned also earlier on about looking to bring another another manufacturer into the sport. One of the things we're hearing from a lot of a lot of leaders around the the series and teams as well as. Obviously as a consequence economic consequence of what's happened this year, the sponsors a perhaps going to be pretty difficult thin on the ground through twenty one into twenty two. How confident to you? Robust you'll pipeline is of sponsors. So for the series itself and for the teams, we feel really good about it. Under these circumstances we haven't had anybody run off really there will. There will be some adjustments based on the fact that we expect. Now we'll have three fuel raises this year than was originally planned. but I think people are sticking with us. We're just making some adjustments and mostly frankly the timing of consideration. So and I think the same true for the teams they want to be on the track obviously a much greater headwinds if you can't produce the sport but I, don't I think I'll all of our teams are getting through this and at a quite bullish optimistic about the future. You might think also about diversity being really important and then having a as wide a range of fans and of competitors. As, possible and obviously another thing we've seen this year has been the the idea that sporting general needs to have a sense of purpose just to be an entertainment isn't really enough and obviously across the spectrum from former. NFL We've seen all kinds of of. Social Justice messages, and as well as things like topics is sustainability and diversity, etc. what's your own view on on that and and sport as a platform for for good causes if you like and peppis. I think whether we're business leaders are individual citizens. Or Sport. We do have a responsibility to to make a difference into to be looking for improvement. which starts with acknowledging issues. So I mean that's a very general statement for us. I feel like. The first thing we can do. It is is do things that are more than symbolic and that are more than statements. So we are committed to bring diversity into our sport. And I think we got a lot of work to do to be anywhere near where we should be in that regard. So against some of that is internal to the way we run our business. If you think of our organization, if you think of it that way, it's work with the teams and our promoters so that we fact ecosystem that way and then ultimately it'll be bringing in. Crew members and drivers, and in our ladder series will be an important part of that. Our pipeline does not look good right now in that regard but we're doing some things right now to see what the possibilities are to make a difference fairly quickly as we possibly can. So. Yeah. I the first thing is. We do feel responsibility and sport obviously has As a visible platform has a great opportunity to keep the issues in front of the public. But in addition to that, just the way I think we gotta get our own house in order and and. and. Be a model more than. A symbol. and I hope we can make real progress. Consistently over time. AM. Finally, Mark on a similar theme of the world was moving towards a decarbonisation more electric mobility. I motor sport moving slowly to to reflect that do you feel that the clear that everybody's enjoyed during the the lockdown and and the way that everybody's now looking at their own sense of vulnerability and all these other discussions? Do you feel that the sustainability topic is is more powerful nowadays how do you feel the the shift in of? The move towards decolonisation electric. Yeah. Well the air isn't so clear here even. Three quarters away from California we're getting California or as fire air, and it's true really coast to coast. So it's top of mind not just as a natural disaster, but as evidence of global warming and and I, certainly all these things. Hurricanes in the southern part of this country I think combined to increase. The sense of of. Urgency to do something about to do all the things we can do about global warming in. Saying that right now, our motto is sort of You know faster. And Louder so. I think that's kind of what our brand is. Now, we're not oblivious to sustainability issues. There's a lot of ways we can attack that part of it is off the track with our promoters. In the way we operate our events other leagues have done a really good job in that regard I think. Part of it is on the track and so you've seen some discussion about kind of hybrid motors that's not to replace the basic. Engine. But rather to supplement and I think that that's an ongoing conversation that you'll see some. You'll see some implementation on. In the next couple of years. and then we'll see where it goes from there but but I must say right now. Are Oem's. Chevy General Motors, Chevy and Honda they want horsepower and they They they think that we are a great platform for that part of their market and we'll continue to feel that expectation. Fantastic. Thank you very much. Pleasure thanks for having me. Bank. Music is six am by. Written Mockus Simmons See soundcloud dot com slash trailer music.

We get a little bit on the Jaguar F. Pace Ace S._v._R.. Again in some Australian New Zealand big V eight are racing as well very interesting segment that a lot of people may not know too much about but if you go on Youtube take a look at some of those races from the seventies and eighties they were intense all right we'll do that all in the second first Zych owed he the enemy of speed Zaib are Ra- revolutionary high temp coatings dissipates heat increases performance of man folds headers <hes> exhaust intake exhaust manifold turbos intakes the turbos you can take apart and they'll do the housing in that it just helps heat is the enemy under that hood man you gotTa turn the boost down what we learn and boost bar town in. We're K- point seven hundred K. P. S.. I don't even know what anyway we'll learn all about that. But YOU WANNA turn that boost up you want to get rid of that heat and that's why you want the the ads eibar <hes> increases horsepower torque reduces metal surface and under hood temperatures and far listener show aren't do it yourself or you can visit zych coat dot com click on coating services and psycho will coat your part sentiment. I think you're back in fifteen days of just or less sent him. The head are sent him the manifold zych coat dot com and <hes> do shelf or have them do it. Uh Get it on got to get it on judge getting on and welcome to <hes> Castro Car Castle Mackerel. That's the motivator met the Andrew what's going on. Oh just doing car stuff. What do you do all kinds of car stuff bought a truck? We talked about that on the show Goldberg this week drive a new ACURA T. dialects. I'm chuck I know Yeah I get it but but I figured out I was driving around the infinity. Yeah that's a big rig it it in its good hugh x eighty culex eighty big full size S._U._V.. It's good it's good. It's a little bigger than I need but it's good it's good to pile the girls in there my my daughter and her friends and take them out to Malibu and just sit up high and all that my only beef is the mileage indicator once it gets to thirty three left to go in the tank it just flat lines. That's it. I've seen this before like. I want to say you like a jeep. Grand Cherokee has driving I have that I have had that happen but I've had it in other cars. which is it flat? Lines with. Thirty miles left yeah and it's like I. I don't need when I look down and see one eighty seven left terms of range who cares I don't care it's only that lasts thirty miles that I say w e thirty six and three you and I both had one of those and and it would turn into this flashing dash and I'm like why I need to know those are the ones you need to know and by the way I've had ones go down to like zero and then I think about one's cut off at like ten or something don't cut off thirty eighty three. I think the B._M._W.. Like nine or something like that or it's just like I remember that flash on like I got to be four miles into this flashing. What do I do because I think it said nine seven Scott Dixon by the way indy driver serious indy driver is going to come in and a second? He's third all time in indy wins. Did you know that behind A._J.. Four and Mario Andretti Mario. We're going to see a car cast coming up in Portland yeah soon but third all time Scott Dixon and nominated by the way for his six nominations for espy for best driver yeah so lots going on with that guy we're going to bring him in in a couple of you and we'll talk to him all about the indy which I feel you tell me I feel like it is having a resurgence with their problem with indy and cart and competition with indy and cart or confusion with Indian car a few years ago years ago then then a merger. I guess all I know is as a fairly yeah well casual but consistent observer of Indie is I think if there was some sort of chart it would have been down five eight ten years ago and I feel like it's up now. Yeah I would say I like watching the indy five hundred and the race. We have here a long beach. You know we I I like that race. We both went out this year and watch some some racing and I feel like that event has gotten bigger over the years. The past few years right is bigger and bigger right. It's a long beach grand. Prix is a great party right right. What a great place to race? I guess yes I mean Scott's won. The indycar championship and O-3 uh-huh eight two thousand thirteen fifteen and last year eighteen finished third in his class at Loma race. They're sixteen nineteen inches yeah. Actually I want to get driving in the Lama. I think he's one is class. Lama finished finished third. Oh well here's how at an this could be. It could be Chris. Let's find probably finished third in one class at Lama but we don't know we'll. We'll have to talk to figure that one each E._t.. L. M. I made the bio. It's not dealing but I've class position. Okay we'll get we'll get into it all right. Why don't we let's see give me one more check in here? <hes> so what are we doing. We're getting ready to the go-to Guna Seca where <hes> that's right through and all that good stuff yeah and let me throw this out here. I've got tickets. I've got a couple pairs of tickets to the INDYCAR race in September timber at Laguna Seca and I've got some tickets to Nascar at Bristol. I'M GONNA say August seventeenth. How do they get those email us car cast show at gmail.com will randomly select some listeners is into get them hooked up with some of the speedway? You've been driving F- pay around for week. Yeah how's that Pace S._v._R.. Oh It's five hundred and fifty horsepower. It's an aunt gag yeah the Jaguar F. Pace S._v._R.. <hes> it's <hes> it's it's fantastic so you you had a pace for a minute right but you had the kind of the entry version with I remember again little weird things like I remember going all right. Well sign me up for Sirius X._M.. And they're all we have to get a separate receiver antenna and I was like oh no. It's it's it's built in to activate it and they're like now. You'll get a separate receiver over and I'm like wait. What years it I for first off? A Ford Focus from two thousand eleven has it built into the thing is just built into the thing everyone has built into the thing just activates like no you gotta get a separate antenna and receiver but this is a Jank and two thousand eighteen. Why would we have why wasn't built in? I remember at little bits and pieces of that kind of going. Why not yeah I don't there's certain like I like Jag but then I was like I want to heat I wanNA cooler air conditioner and the seat or whatever I don't have that I'm like? I don't know your Jag. Why don't you have all that stuff I apparently they do? You just didn't have it all right Chris. If you could bring up my social media you gotta see the color on this thing and then you gotta see the seats seats a win you over when you get to the V._R.. By the way the V._R. is seventy nine thousand. I think seventy nine nine ninety bass eighty nine thousand as tested the big wheels big breaks five hundred and fifty horsepower and it's it's sounds fantastic and <hes> it it look at that those like. Erasing like a sports see good string very bolstering in very diamond sticky right looks good <hes> the color is almost a <hes>. It's kind of a Laguna Seca. You're or Laguna blue that they had B._M._W.. Had the m three the what do you got a forty six. Yeah the e forty six came out in this special color and it was like they called it Laguna in a blue or Seca blue. I don't know Max pat if you can find that it's very similar that was sort of the color it's a I don't know it's not a dark blue to medium blue. That just looks really sporty. This I think Jaguar claimed zero to sixty in like four point three seconds but it's been tested as fast as three point seven the fact that it's got four doors. It's an S._U._v. all wheel drive and all wheel drive and your sub fours is unbelievable yeah. It was fun to drive fantastic. Let me hit <hes> J. B.. Weld real quick here for big or small projects were proud F._J._b.. Welder poxy adhesives as our sponsor. We use it at home the garage studio wherever we want and everywhere everywhere it's J. B.. Weld Dot com get Home Depot Amazon and everywhere all that apart stores as well all right so you're driving that <hes> Scott Dixon is waiting in the wings WanNa talk about all this stuff when a talked about <hes> Alamatti. I'm a little curious llamas. Well you think he class. I know what he drove on a nerd in his class at the twenty four hours a woman all right. I put a note there. Max Pad said what he drove if you go class because we don't know what he drove but we can bring him in here and ask him so. Why don't we bring in Scott Dixon five time indycar series champion Scott Dixon? I'm going to be <hes> this Sunday. Three PM EASTERN ON N. B. C. S. N. is or they're going to have the Toronto Grand Prix or Terai. The Indy Honda Indy Toronto Scott Scott is the defending winner. There is one there three three total times on that track. <hes> Scott is in good put the headphones on Mex- panel get him set up good to see Scott Dixon. Hey Hey turn the turn the MIC on there. We're a little short handed here a heated up. We gotta try that again working yeah. Thanks thanks so Scott I just because we're all up in Lama Mama Mode here. What did you drive at Lamar what Class G._T.? Pros G._T._M.. G._T. pro. I think they call it the because they are prone. 'em So but the the Ford G._T.. It was their resurrection of the UH fiftieth anniversary he or G._T.. And you drove when they brought it back in well sixteen when they brought it back sixteen as the fist year back and they brought three cars four four car who is on your team who was on in your car with you so there was the U._k.. Team and then and then the American team I was on the American team with Ryan Briscoe and Richard Westbrook and then the other cow was <hes> I think Dirk Muller <hes> Jerry hand and Sebastian borders and the other America so they actually won the rice we with the well that holds. We got that worked out that G._T.. So I've heard through discussing with the <hes> analyst I talked about that. Maybe I think so <hes> it good. Would I think about it. <hes> they so the deal the deal is says back in the day you could drive a Ford G._T.. In the sixties and a mom but you couldn't drive at attend tense it would break you know and I've talked to those guys. I talk to Dan Gurney about how to save the brakes at the end lemond. He'd be like put that thing down shifted into. I don't know third and just let the Carson low itself like stay off the breaks. You know so it's like obviously Dan Gurney is talking to me about not going going that hard half hour sprint he'd be on it but he's not so you guys have more comfort and more technology and more safety but you have to drive now you can drive the car ten tents for twenty four hours. Is that the correct date. It's the twenty first brush. It is flat out. It's it's it's very tough you know and back then there was two drivers right. Now I think now the maximum you can have is three or your you have to have three because you have to drive for maximum four thousand six window or something like that but yeah it's it's hot now. It's it's flat out and then this category to G._T.. G._T. pro it's big fields. You know your toilet that was for the outright win in the sixties obviously sixty sixty nine or whatever they when they run four in a row but <hes> you know now it's a cost of about eighteen or twenty which is probably the most difficult costs the prototypes now are really well sunny being tortured for the last two years and then and then prototype to which is a pretty tough clause as well but it's it's a great rice. I was lucky to go with chip Ganassi racing the same team I rice with an Indycar so it made it very easy transition and to go to Lamar for the first time team did win with the with the SISTA coming a fist and we came in third so it was definitely <hes> <hes> for the fiftieth anniversary to go back and win was was astonishing yeah. What a great car to drive in that event? I mean it's cool. It's cool to drive a vet. It's cool to drive a nine eleven but it's better to drive forward but you've done them a few times just in the forty part of the Ford Program yes so it's <hes> you know that that was the last race this year for for that effort so it'll be interesting to see you know this. The categories changing a lot right you know the insurance championship and also the A._C._O.. They've brought in the new hyper which will start next year I think with twitter and then also Valkyrie <hes> with the mountain so it's it's an interesting transition but they've tried to the budgets for two hundred three hundred million dollars a year when portion Russian Audi and Obama going at it Toyota <hes> whereas now they're trying to crush that down to around thirty million dollars year so I think they'll have a big influx of of other manufacturers which will get back to where it should be so you're saying the answer Martin Valkyrie and is going to race in the G._T.. Category no that'll be in the High Picasso that will be what's no and now is for the outright win for prototype class. Yeah the hyper car class will have what makes what vehicles in so I think at the moment the only two that have signed up as the twitter hyper which they've already started running. I think I saw some some clips like maybe on youtube or something and then and then the Valkyrie that's at the moment but then you know I think <hes> McLaren's meant to be coming in <hes> Tom Ford. I think we're even looking at it as well do they do they. I'm trying to picture hyper car. I'm trying to picture a Toyota hyper car what I can't physically picture what it is. I interested Amal. I know I know what the Valkyrie looks like. The valkyrie looks like to but they've made street versions of it or they're suppose going into production but I think <hes> I think the going back to kind of the old school rules. Maybe AH yeah so that's a production of at least twenty five dollars yeah so yeah that's right. It's it's just looks like a race car right. I tend to like these. I don't like when cars become become sort of futuristic space traveling machines like I don't even really like the aesthetic of f one anymore. It's like the aesthetic in the seventies was so great health and John Player Special Ferrari big barrel tires back smaller in the front. Now this is what we were talking about like goodwood revival and stuff the other show yeah and the hyper-cars have brought it back a little more toward what a car looks like versus versus the G._D._p.. Stuff valium whatever just sort of crazy yeah crazy a lot of people were hoping that we're going to go back to maybe G._T._1. SPIC where you know it would be like a full G._T.. But you know the unfortunate part of of the balance the performance that everybody races in that category now is that you know the vodka has seven hundred horsepower but the rice cow has only five hundred horsepower so D- tuned that it it it's it's just you know I don't know which is the limiting factor. I think it's the portion of the corvette you know and everybody gets ditching to to that spot that everybody has basically the same speed so going to the G._T.. One Speck I think would have been quite exciting but obviously they've gone down the road of the HYPOC. Our which will be interesting well the Porsche. They're probably probably going down to the Porsche if there if the portions not running turbo and it's a flat naturally aspirated six they're not going to get more than five hundred horsepower engine. They're just not going to. Ed With the displacement at has I'm sure the van and horsepower but also why not give a turbo let the Porsche run a turbo bump it up to seven hundred and fifty horsepower whatever you can get whatever you want once you put turbo in there because the Ford is six cylinder but it's running turbos and it can make whatever it wants his well either way. It's an interesting kettering because the Porsche's is not. It's not even a nine eleven right. I think it's IT'S A it's on a Cayman Chessy. ESI rallied engine because they need they need to add the refusal whereas on the nine eleven you couldn't Ateret a few yeah so there are some there is some strange configuration but we need to talk to Patrick Long. I think more about that right yeah you would know exactly yeah. I'm probably not meant to say something like that. It's not really a car. It doesn't exist in any factory form not starting to stretch unlike like my seventy nine dots and two eighty Z X. Twin Turbo car. That's in the next shop V eight in the front of it. There's no manufacturer and that way that way and it's got two turbochargers Rogers and so it's like how do you get that across the governing body where you're driving a car that doesn't exist and you're going. No it's Japanese V._8. In there yeah I know but nobody ever made this Bob. Sharp told me op Sharpe said Bob because all the time this Bob Sharp when I answer the phone like this Hello Hello Bruce. What do you want to go hi Bob? If I called Bob Right now he answers Bob Sharp so I said he's like yeah. All the nine thirty five Porsche guys were all pissed off when we brought this this car out because got a V. Eight nine hundred thirty three horsepower Blah Blah Blah and I was like yeah well they had a point you know 'cause they're running engines that cowman their cars and you're not and he's like I told them relax yeah. I said Paul put this thing on the poll like Pocono Yeah and if Paul wins the race then we can have another discussion right now. He hasn't run the race. He's on the Paul but he hasn't won anything yet and then if he wins we can have another meeting right now. Far as I can tell we got all this press out here because Paul put this car in the pulse so you welcome marketers such as sales of it and then the car broke and they didn't have to have another nobody nobody bitched about right yeah great Scott. You're going this Sunday. Is the Indian Toronto that's right trying to think of. I don't think I've been on that attract. We've never been on that track. Have we know Indiana which track which track is it. It's the street right so it's downtown. Oh Yeah Oh yeah this is trying to think where she didn't even know the first year but I know it's been running since the nineties but it's it's has gone through some changes over the years as a want to races. Now in the series are the street race versus the oval. I think it's maybe twelve and five something like that so this may be only four or five ovals. You know it has changed a lot. I think when I first I came into <hes> Indycar in the two thousands of his may be fifty fifty and same with indy lights back in those days too so it's it has gone more road course based <hes> you know throughout its it seems I don't know what's more challenging a street course or oval they both are they're just so different you know I think you'll mentally and oval especially you know like maybe the Indianapolis five hundred dispeat- too so high the cowards so light on downforce. It's moving around constantly. It's just mentally after that three hour rice you drained because you know one. You've got the cows running around <hes> at the same time at very high speeds you know you can find by concrete walls and fences that can be shredders and things like that so it's it's <hes> you know. Street courses a lot more physical because it's bumpy. It's <hes> you know lots of breaking shifting. <hes> you know the acceleration. <hes> you know is is is pretty intense so you know it. They just so different but that's what I love about indycar racing is that that it's so diverse you know you do short track ovals to super speedways like Indianapolis two streep courses to row causes. You know I think mid Ohio is next on the list right all different and not only the street coarser bumpy but there's no camber in any of the turns someone like off camera. You have to figure out a lot of stuff that sears points. Here's points when you're not a huge fan of opinion yeah. It's it's technical yeah you gotta figure that track out a little bit like I went around it in. I don't know Ferrari challenge when around it up there and seem bumpy yeah. It's not too bad like it's it's. It's an older circuit Fisher probably due for a bit of an update. We don't go there anymore. Last racists was last year but I don't know it's it's a hot track. Much likeliness acres in the fact that it's quite low grip so the cost lights around a a lot. There's a lot of elevation changes so it's really hard to you know pick your mocks or <hes> you know Chris and things like that so it's it's easy to catch you out. In the thing that I always found so frustrating with Sonora <hes> was that you know kind of in the afternoon the win in which shift the track would totally change all the dry dust would be on the track and you know you'd be sitting out for qualifying times or getting ready to go out and you'd be like a second slow you know so it's it's definitely attracted with the heat and wind changed changed a ton but it's I think I'm just youtube amazing how much of that can have can affect thoughts huge just so at the limit the whole time the slightest little change in weather something and any dust on the track just game painter is funny like growing up when the junior categories or even go cuts you never really thought about the weather macho or or you know but but track temperature now just you know one. The engine doesn't performance well because they're so highly stressed now that any kind of you know adjustment assessment with with the ambient condition really hurts or you know the ties just once they get hall just a no good. You know so it's it is one of those things that you know growing up. You'd never really thought too much about but for us now going qualifying session you know you you constantly honestly looking at the weather. You know what win direction even for gearing now you know you're changing gears on Roy cost by you know listen hundred him to make sure you had the right gear. Oh Really Yeah I. I have questions about it years. I will say then doing a transam race a couple years ago the tires when they're cold. They're like us. I spun right off the track. Corvette just barely put the throttle right off but then later on in the race there were too hot and they got home marbly in their slide all over the place and it went from so cold worthless hot worthless yeah. It's kind of like right. There's a kind of a sweet spot in the middle which works really well all and once you get under it or passed it. There's there's failure try. Every vintage race is like twenty minutes. Stay right in that window a few laps in not window slick Thai when it's cold is not not a whole lot of yeah. Let me tell you guys about Castrol. Edge real quick castrol edge is stronger under pressure engines can lose ten percent of performance due to friction castrol edge with fluid titanium transforms under pressure to keep metal. It'll apart and fight rob a fight power robbing friction to unlock exhilarating performance. It's three times stronger than the leading full synthetic against viscosity breakdown per the Kurt Orban test in the five W. Thirty vis grade aide edge formula always exceeds industry industries tough standards but the new and improved formula incorporates the latest technology that make a transform to be the strongest one pressure is highest Chikao Castrol edge so Scott Hat. Let's talk gears for second. The car you drive is paddle shift now. Does it blip the throttle for you on the downshift does okay Ed this steering wheels put on five ten. Is there a clutch in it. Do you use the clutch to get out the pit like first gear and then paddle only or yes so the clutch pedal to so there's any to to piddles you know just your accelerator break big piddles rotten feet but then you have a clutch pedal <hes> on the side or you can do any configuration. You won't really <hes> and then you have you know right and left up and down but it it it does everything for you. That's why we we always joke. If you know something looks wrong. And the data it'll be like you know talking to my team. Man Looks like you miss this shift. But of course you can't do it so sure not shift at all but but it's still it's still a big you know you trying to look for that. Perfect seamless shift that the manufacturers are constantly chasing and with the configuration of the indycar now with the gearboxes. It's still very hot too to get a very smooth shift. The Power Plant Matt and I were talking about this a couple of weeks ago not in preparation for this just as we just talk about stupid car stuff and you were online and you're looking at the indy powerplant Honda and are there to G._M.. The engines in the what is it was a small displacement placement or two point in a in a v. six yeah so that's a small displacement v configurations so high R._P._M.. <hes> limit those little like it's about. I think twelve off thousand payment half yeah that's but that's super high I mean in a V configuration. They limited one for the car or per track nuts for durability right. Gone are the days where we would have four engines a weekend. Now we have four engines for whole season so they have to reach twenty five hundred to three thousand miles each engine so I think it's to try and help those in costs and it never really does the durability goes through such a a transformation and the materials and metals and stuff they use. I think a Lotta time end up costing them more so there's always way to spend money. Do they have a diameter intake on the throttle throttle body or something I mean what governs the horsepower boost opo displacement so everything else is pretty open to to twelve or twelve and a half on R._P._M.. And then they let you run an X. amount of bar or what is it seventeen. You got the fun button the cheap button overtake thirteen pat. What is it fourteen point seven yeah? I knew I matched that's good for one thing and one thing only when you can't figure out pounds to bar booze he jumps in and says today so you run how many bar or we use K._P._A.. I don't know how here they must be a conversion K._p._i.. That boost to bar what what's the turbo pressure K._p._i.. Probably some Newton thing doesn't make any sense. Now's one more thing for Matt to remember but yeah I think we don't use that because I learned fourteen point seven from flying oh right so I'm a pound guy but a. and the Porsche I have has a bar in there and do the math I see one bar equals one hundred K._p.. Also they find fourteen point. Seven pounds is one hundred K._p._i.. I guess so well. That's that summer right yeah. That's correct metric yeah. There might have smarter than a hundred and fifty k. p.. A. On road courses overtake one hundred sixty five K._p._i.. So you're twenty something twenty one pounds overtake kicks picks it up to one sixty five. I think how how do they monitor that or how is that. How's that regulators? It's regulated by boost in electronic boost since her on the platinum which is controlled by Indika and then if it goes over for it then you get an over boost which then limits engine produces actually it just puts an hot limiter so you sit on the hot limit of maybe three seconds and then it takes it out again how long how long can you use it for a race. You can use it as many times as you want or whenever you want during a race I wish you could use up to whatever so it's a timed event now so you get two hundred six on some of the biggest circuits one hundred and fifty seconds on on some of the shorter ones but one hundred and fifty seconds you can use in any in which Chan now whenever you got it used to be because I saw fast and furious one and he was always soon junior nitrous button at the end and you know I always thought the Mazda R._X._7. was A unibody carpet. The floorboards came on served time steel Lord Plate because you know when you're working on an R._X.. Seven and you WanNa get to the ground can't figure out how to get to what other car you take that playoff can access the floor. There must have been thirteen screws one nylon on their one holden place yeah. They're just a DAB of lot of loctite the over take us to be used to get ten fifteen seconds so is annoying accidentally hit it would run out fifteen seconds. Some people do it on the caution you be talking on the radio and it would just you know awful. Oh yeah which was totally annoying right but now it's like a one hundred thirty seconds that you get I mean. Is there an indicator in somebody's keeping track right on the head. It doesn't work yeah yeah you have you. Can you can put what have you want now and I think you have up to eight pages of of data that you can count on you today. Do they. Scroll down from one fifty seconds down so goes that direction kinda makes sense. I guess you can go you can do what have you and it's there for and you could set it up to go up or go down. It's an interesting sort of <hes>. I feel like the WHITTINGTON brothers Kinda did that Whittington brothers they did have the secret nitro yeah. The only problem is everybody else. Gets it so yeah. It's it's it's an interesting process because like when you're driving a car and it's got a bunch of gauge it's on it. Sometimes there's some weird gauge. That's like <hes> you know manifold pressure something like I don't WanNa look at look at the camp. I wanted to tamp oil temp water temp you know I I just put a piece of tape over stuff because I don't even want it there. Why is it wise it their our declaration that goes bad break anyway? We drove the the <hes> the <hes> Trans A._M.. Vat Remember when I came in after coughing. I'm like I don't know what's going on. Dan can't see anything on on this dash and he's like Oh you had it in pit mode and I I didn't have it in any mode. I've never even touched everybody in the car so in pit mode and put me out on a track. I don't know what Wgiram in or what my rpm czars you gotta put put it into track mode. I like a what do you think I'm going to like grabbing thing that happens all the time in the Ford G._T.. Because even the mechanics and engineers have sit up pages right that you have to scroll through but then you get in the car and you go out and you like you're scrolling rolling through tons of pages to try and we need but even in the Indycar at the indy five hundred this year I got into it in practice and you scroll through the pages to get more information and they'd actually put a pitcher of of a sheep online sure you can put videos on the Yugo Crohn's and stuff so I I had a very lovely sheep on interesting. That's not distracting practice. I worked with one guy from New Zealand named Frazier a he actually gave me vegemite in his camper. Van Thought Vegemite people think Australia but it must be big in New Zealand to yes a veggie my momma that's always the debate but I think Mama does maybe I dunno and and you might be more marmite vegemite as more strean. Maybe I don't know but there's always a big day debate between the two this guy frazier he was nuts in a fun way but not nuts and I should have went. He was fun like I'll tell you I'll tell you how this Guy Frazier New Zealand we we're doing earthquake rehab on a bill building downtown and at some point there was some old lady named like Millie early and she was celebrating her ninetieth birthday and she'd been in this building since they built it in like nineteen twenty one or something and so they're like we want to gather everybody up in front the building with millie and the crew and everybody and we'll take a picture with this ninety year old woman in front of this building. She's lived in her whole life now. I felt bad for because it's a little shitty. -partment lived here my whole life I okay what am I never top floors house little shitty room but anyway we all gathered around out front. Come on everyone getting getting put stop your work at her up gather up and got everyone around and and the guy got like on a ladder and got a camera and he was moving and frazier stood in the middle he put his arm around Millie and then he'd let this colossal far was like. It just cleared out they never came back. Never took the picture with mill battery but he's like I'm from New Zealand nuts nuts but fun on nuts but on that and then I'm from North Hollywood so I'm like well. Everyone from New Zealand is fun nuts. Is that a is that a fair statement that is probably a good statement and very true. You gotta you gotTa go down to New Zealand like it's it's an amazing muscle car collection car guy so much racing history if you look at the sixty seventies eighties with Bruce McLaren Chris aim on the you know is there was <hes> you know whole Lotta history especially through that period so it's it's great the toll racing. It's it's funny. It's crazy when you take a look at some of that <hes> V._8. Action over there like if you ever take a deep dive I think like take a deep dive on the Internet. The like like Seventies v Eight New Zealand Australian racers of those guys were going at it may like they're going nuts with those cars on those tracks like crazy like it was. It's really intense in in Harry in interest raw wrong and that's what it was really about you know and the tracks were to you know if you if you came awful slid off there was there was consequences man you hit like a big Ross Bank. It was gonNA knock you. Wait your parents that were racers. Yeah my dad got into yeah rice mixture of things whether it's ready cows or <hes> you know slowing caused to you a bit ago counting and a bit of everything mum did a little bit of racing when they're into speedway coaching Townsville Industry when we moved over there for a period in my younger line attack your dad my dad own Orange County. Your national raceway button willow willow springs thermal. Now I own an apartment in north. Oh I didn't own in North North Hollywood ninety room so no this was a very small track that that they kind of own for for a period of years and then Atlantis sold all but yeah it's <hes>. I don't know those are my best memories. Man was <hes> aren't the MILNES Steve Millen came in here and we were like what's like racing in Australia and he got so mad the museum yes like No. I know we don't really know much the which one is Eric Bana from because he's destroying Australia so we will mention him that <hes> documentary it was yeah the beast or whatever but he was a while back and yeah he was <hes>. I was GONNA say sorta calling his beast like Chevelle but I don't know what it was in Australia like a Mad Max fifteen eighteen or something like he he had Eric Banda's V._8. In Australia was a like a holden or probably telling yeah I imagine we just took some American American cars and here they call them Chevelle Chevy of of Australia. I guess I dunno Chris my build. It is working on the whole the whole time the the the beast I guess is the story of him constantly upgrading whatever car I don't fucking Oh yeah yeah seventy four seventy four crashed it right. I don't even know if we were making Ford Falcons out here in the seventies or seventy four. I feel like that's a sixties car. We had them out. We had them in the sixties. You're right. I don't think I think after the Mustang staying when did Ford stop making the Falcon in the United States. That's funny because that car looks like Mustang Right looks like seventy four ish kind of it's a Grande Torino looking kind of Car Panipat Anyway Muscle V. Eight. I don't abide by sticking with one car and working on it your whole life yeah I feel the same way about women gotta move onto the next model so when I say model year move on ex mob and all right so the Ford Falcon in North America was from nine hundred sixty two nine thousand nine hundred seventy right and in Australia is nine hundred sixty two two thousand sixteen Jesus Christ to let let it go hold him. It's the same Richard G._M.. Version of it and they just kept running the the holden many versions but yeah then they brought us the Pontiac G._T._O.. Here in two thousand two thousand and four square hole then that was doing well there and it came here and it didn't do it didn't do well but it was kind of a sporty forty two was but it was kind of a sleeper muscle car you know had good engine and stuff in it but kind of cut I will say that when Ford brought back the thunderbird that was like all right swinging M._S. yeah when they brought back G._T._O.. I saw doesn't like the specs and the looks like that's cool fast. I'm sure it can lead to villers nine of them. Got From mecum all right. Let me hit <hes> J. B. Weld for big or small repair projects home or garage. You Need J. B.. Weld he needs something that lasts. We don't like to use the household glues because because that's not industrial braid we used J. B.. Weld around here. They have put it in your toolbox but in your kitchen drawer put it in your <hes> craft room good for metal wood plastic and more made made in the U._S._A.. Where we stopped making the Falcon in nineteen seventy because we knew better pros D._I._Y.? Trusted J. B. Weld for more than fifty years. I always used to do the J.. B. Weld for the metal repair but now they're doing all kinds of boxes and all kinds of crazy glues polyurethane. That doesn't foam up. Yes other hate that foaming. There's a there's a box into the room and I've walked in and they said you counted everything in their waited. Just make churn didn't count missing yeah they could use a few drops of the crazy glue and put it bowel yeah so no way man no way sunglasses break. That's on you available at J.. B. Weld Dot com home. Depot Lowe's autozone advance auto parts a riley everywhere else as well. It's a J. B.. Weld world's strongest bond so Scott. How do you <hes> if they change configuration of the track at Toronto? How are you so consistently successful on that track? I think most of it stays the same right like the lost years the I think the lost four corners have changed a bit but I think I'll street close gossiping very good so you know they typically. You know a long beach set our per Saint Pete set up to Toronto. I just close variations. You Know Long Beach is always kind of its own unique thing and in Detroit Detroit too just because of the surfaced but yeah I don't know I think Toronto is say talent sheer team team and the cavs always being good there but it's also it's a short track. There's a lot of action going on. I feel it suits my driving style quite a bit you know and trying to generate that tie heat which I think is always a is a big thing that you need to turn. Do you have anything out of work. Call it a bucket list but maybe I did but you have a list like okay. Okay <hes> done Lama <hes> other events. I Dunno Pike's peak or you. Tell tell US vintage race at the goodwood track in a saloon car or you know you want to get back to that V._8. Australia Australia New Zealand we talked about we talked about classic Lama which is next year classical among gonNA come to that are July. Maybe we're we're planning. We're trying to get everywhere but you tell us. Are there things <hes> you're thinking get about Salama Stu would love to win them all. I think you know being lucky enough to to win. Die Turner a few times. Lama is still one of those you know major events that that you want to win outright especially which is tough UNICEF issue with manufacturers these days and trying to cross between talk now right now. You gotta be crazy prototype exactly bathurst one thousand for shores is one that I had an opportunity to you know this year but but it actually conflicted with petite law that we have in Atlanta with. The last race for the full couldn't couldn't do that this year. GonNa try and do Ba'athist twelve which comes up in February another one you guys should try and get to this. <hes> Rod Millen as we were talking about the MILNES has the lead foot festival which is a New Zealand <hes> <hes> which is kind of a smaller version of good fiscal run up his driveway and it's it's. It's a fun of into so yeah I've been lucky enough to to do a ton of great and exciting events but Lamar bathurst. Those are definitely the ones where you need a big driveway. We need either. I oh I did not know about <hes> Daytona what we driving. We driving the G._T.. Daytona so yeah the last four years has have been the G._T.. The Ford G._T.. Previous obvious that I think my first race at Daytona was maybe in two thousand and four with Scott Pruitt and <hes> Max Papis and that was a sure way odor. I think <hes> but they my first one came with twitter at Daytona with <hes> Dan Walden the late Dan Mountain Casey mears sure and then a few years later with four actually a couple of times with the Ford G._T.. In DP program <hes> before that we love Max Pappas as a lot of fun. He's Melody Man. It seems like only yesterday we're going down shoreline at <hes> at the Toyota Grand Prix banging my car from behind. We're flat out racist racist gone now that was crazy. I thought they were GONNA kill somebody. In the big crash to the last race they qualified and then they're like it's less race for fun. We're GONNA flip the auto so everybody everybody in that race. Everybody just kind of banks that our way through the lineup it's carnage they. They pulled a piece of safety equipment on the trat without <unk> out stopping the race which is like. I don't know why you'd WanNa tow truck out there. It's it's every everything that it was Brett Tavern I think when somebody hit his car with him out of it whenever any whenever anything goes wrong it's are we saw a confluence of sort of bad coincidence things like first off. It was around turn savage eight when I was around Terni terminate is is blind. You can't see past it then. Everybody was like the yellows didn't mean Shit because here's what would happen. If you stopped racing during a yellow they just pass and everyone everyone just kept racing so nobody's slowed down on any big waving yellows. There was like fuck it. I'm not slowing down Max path Pumpido. Everyone went around this corner and I went around to it was like Oh shit. There's a car there and then oh I mean that car is so lucky. Oh my gosh if he's home we were just you know he's okay. He just jumped in the air like a cat and Steve Waugh. He's five but they were watching the cars around and they're like why why is nobody slowing now. Whereas yellow professional third yes a blind corner? Everyone ignores yellows. Nobody the by the way whatever one's figured out is when they tell you something like you know like in the past like the pros start thirty seconds behind the celebrities and anyone who jumps the gun is going to be. It's like fucking figured meagre out stars. Here's your punishment drunk earlier when you after this race with the with the guy told you not to they will pull you off this course you will be black flag and then ray starts like fuck it so that's what everyone figured out and then whoever Ram Brent Davits car was right on the bumper of a guy who saw he pulled out and that's been the scariest three tenths of a second America was staring at the back of a car makes you wonder why they stopped doing that. I feel that they're going to bring it back over toward is going to bring it back. It was always like for for us. You know you'd always be right before qualifying something we'd be sitting in the engineering truck and we'd have it all on the screens watching this race because the rice has always very good to watch with the mix of amateurs and pros and it is entertaining. It's actually you bring it up. It would be kind of interesting. I know it's accurate but it'd be great to see a bunch of civic type RS because it would be such a jump for performance of the car and what maybe a little too much. What what did I know? There's it's that one element like there's the the most important element of that race is is not the pros and amateurs or are that mix. It's the it's not my car. Nobody gives a shit what I do to this car your car you drive differently or when it's your team owners car and you have to answer to somebody you don't drive like as big an asshole with it is not your car and your racing. Nobody cares nobody cares and I've I've done it. We're guys one through four cars just in practice and it's not like they blew it up or they busted it up or crashed into shoreline like someone would just go to them like let's let's get you out of that car and let's find another car and he's like okay. They wouldn't yell like what the fuck now. I want to say that would Goldberg did the race years ago. Maybe it was a qualifier. Maybe it's during the race he something happened. He messed up. He felt like it was his fault. He got out of the car he was mad. A big punches the side view mirror which brings off at he gets in the locker room. He's like broke my hand yeah. He's like whatever but it's going to be like going into go cutting. That's same way like people just destroy those things at least when Argo the girl scouts yeah. They don't care gyco. Everybody's got a the to do list. Drop off your dry cleaning pick-up some milk. Now you can add save hundreds of dollars on car insurance and you don't have to drop off or pick up anything just go to GEICO DOT COM and in fifteen minutes you could be saving fifteen percent or more on car car insurance so if you want some extra money in your pocket. This is the most rewarding to do you can do today checkout Geiko Dot Com. We are going to be in Portland coming up on the thirtieth of August. That'll be the world of speed Motor Sports Museum will be there with Mario Andretti yeah and I'll inform him that you shall pass him and Indycar but he's going to say yeah but what I did it. You know we didn't have helmets yeah. Hey with that hair you didn't need. He's a character man. I'd love Mario. He's such a big pot of L.. Support and I think we're lucky to have him in A._J.. And so many others from the era that's to come to the races over time it's newman film you and I were talking before the show he saw the newman documentary still into it you'll going strong and we'll talk to him. <hes> during our live show over there in the thirtieth and then also so <hes> Golden State Theatre August seventeenth. I'll be doing stand up there. That's in Monterey and that'll be after our race track Saturday of that for pit bull yeah yeah for for the rolexes story so coming out to the vintage did race you race the nine thirty five. Yes fantastic yeah and I'll do my stand up set in my fire ship yeah awesome and I may wear my helmet to will flip the visor up to get the microphone it may or may not there stig somebody's cell on the same day but I just saw at fires in Long Beach doing stand if the guy up there short and unfunny that'll be mad.

What what an awesome event, you get a lot of people go, why do you go to the GP? Why don't you go to the Indy? Five hundred. I've been any five hundred qualifying and such. And you know, the big thing is it's so big Mike anything around in Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We know. It's like it's a big deal. Right. You know, indi GP not quite as big as say the five hundred not even close to the five hundred but some of the other vents there. But you know, the big thing is is that a lot of media, don't go. They don't cover it. So if you're like me, and you're looking to get FaceTime with the drivers in the top drivers in the sport you go on the GP weekend. Because there's more time availability, there's less media. The it's a little bit more relaxed. Not that IndyCar weekend is relaxed, but it definitely is in comparison to the five hundred. So that's why we're able to knock out a bunch of interviews. Get some great content, and such so, yeah, you guys are going to see that today. But. I just love Indianapolis Motor Speedway. You know and got to give a big shout out to my good friend. Ravi fast too is spotter for Ganassi racing. Actually, Scott Dixon. Spotter invited me up on top of the pagoda. And you know, the pagoda it's it's one of those places you just don't get to go. Then matter what credentials you have you just don't get to go. But the truth is I was with Robbie fast who is a spot right in IndyCar, and he's been for a long time, and he's well respected. So he helped get me up on top of the pagoda. You gotta know somebody to get up there. And you know, he invited me up there. He wanted me to kind of get a feel for things check it all out. And I say you get up there. And it's absolutely insane view. You guys can see some of the pictures. You can see the entire track there, and especially for the GP. You can see it's best place to watch it. You know, it's funny too. Because you're up there. You don't realize you're protected right at the when you're at a race, right? But the snipers up there on top of the pagoda. Yes, snipers. It's one of those things. They don't advertise. It, you know, but you're up there and their snipers and you start thinking like, oh, wow. You know, and it's hidden in plain sight to their up there, and you can actually see them if you're really really looking. But you gotta really be looking, and I guess they'd never really looked before. But you know, you start thinking about it, and like a shot across the if there was somebody bad. They're right. It's like a you know what is apple Motor Speedway. It's a couple of miles around. So, you know, if you're going to take a shot from the pagoda all the way to like, turn number three or something like that? Man. That's probably a mile long shot. You know, you damn well better have a sniper. If you're gonna make that shot. Right. So I don't know. It was just on amazing amazing view up there. But put into perspective a lot of things. I bet you, you know, whether you're a football game or whatever you're at. I bet you there's there's there's snipers more often than not we don't think about it. But if you are a sniper, and you're listening the show. Thank you for what you do. It's nice to know that were protected, but the rap part was that was up there, you know, and Indies this weird place where legends just it's like you get the zombie hoard chasing people down. It's crazy like people will wait five hours to get a glimpse of driver. It's nuts. What happens it at the? Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And you've got a legend like Rick Mears, right guys. One any five hundred countless times one of the most accomplished IndyCar drivers ever. And he's now a spotter for Pinski. Right. And there was like why would he spot? Why get why he would spot because man get to hide out on top of the building with the best view and the place and. And you don't have to wait through all the crazy rabid fans. You know, but the best part one of my best parts of the weekend. I had a lot of great great times. And a lot of fun stuff. Happened had hit up saying elmo's. Yes. If you haven't been there, you definitely should it's the place to eat any Indianapolis. But anyways, stock with Rick Mears and Rick. You know, he's Baja champion. He's an offroad guy. Right. So I got chance to talk with him for like five ten minutes. Like, nobody around on top of the pagoda. Nobody bothered him and just talking about off road and Baja and he wanted to talk about his chin with buggies. And you don't he was it was funny because he was telling me like, you know, I've been reading on this new this new FOX's spin this electrically controlled suspension. And you know, and he's like, and he's like, you know, he's like these trophy trucks now. And you know, he knows I raise the trophy, Chuck, but he's like, you know, truck. She raced now he's like they've got this new technology coming in, but I know about but he's like it drops the truck down. So like if you're on a high speed section, or you know, are the greater roads or you're on a dry lake bed in Mexico. He's I dropped the truck like eleven inches. And he's I can that waits more dynamic, and he's like, you know, at handles better at speed, and you can go faster. And you know, he's telling me all this. And then goes because you realize what I am all class one channel with these like. Like, we didn't even have eleven inches to start with. He's like you guys are able to lose eleven inches and still have a good truck. How does that work? He's like we never had eleven inches to begin with these voted had eleven inches. He's like he's like life would have been so much better. And it was just funny. You know, hearing this IndyCar legend I'll see wanted to talk about off road. But truth is it was he made he made some valid points. But Rick Mears just. Oh, man, fun, fun fun guy to talk to you know, he just he loves offroad. You know, it's funny. You've got a guy like that. And he's still to this day keeps tabs on everything that's happening in the offer industry, which I think is something something really really RAD, you know. And but you know, you look at Jimmy Johnson. And he's he's falls a bunch offroad accounts. Right. I would say probably Rick Mears Jimmy Johnson, Robby, Gordon, probably the three most iconic guys to come out of offroad into into regular motor sport, or I guess traditional motor sport. And we all know Ravi sticks around. But yeah, you know, Jimmy Johnson. He's still, you know, he falls, you know, offroad accounts. Kyle Duke some of his some people, and you know, it's just it's interesting the way that works, man. You've you if you've ever been an offer driver. You know, you you you you can't leave it. You know, you always gotta come back. You're always thinking about it wanting to go back. You know, there's always some something drawn you back to support of road. It's kind of interesting the way that works. But yeah. In GP, fun fun time. I will talk about it more. You know, the rest is show. Obviously, we got Hinch Harda Sebastian board day. Some amazing amazing talented drivers on the show this week. And to look forward to those interviews, but yeah, we got a lot of segments. Lots of talk today, if you guys are just tuning in or, you know, just finally making way to the show or just flipping the dial in national syndication if you've got questions for me. I don't know. I know IndyCar we got first practices right now at any Annapolis Motor Speedway going on. I hear I'm watching Twitter as we speak. If you've got questions hit me up at Jim beaver fifteen, but yeah, I guess he'll Castaneda session number one already dropped a to twenty eight imprac. Wow. Where does that? Come from. Everybody starts out low to twenties works way up helium to Twenty-eight. Like, boom. I am here. I'm going for the poll this weekend. Bring it like, I don't know if there's not a statement running session number one at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway than to drop to twenty eight. I don't know what is statement by he'll Castro Neves, so crazy just mind blowing actually how fast that is. And how he was able to do that so ridiculously quick like, you know, that's something you might see later in the week people start approaching that. But like he's trimmed out ready role and nanny and find tune that car, man. Like is. He is he going to thirty like, wow. To twenty eight this early. So. Yeah. I know you're probably listen to this.

What's going to happen in this last episode on Sunday? I'm anxious to see the ratings. Right. We talking like it's not going to be Super Bowl ratings. But you'd think these are going to be like NFL style ratings are, you know, on TV like how many people twenty million thirty million? How many people are going to tune in to watch game of thrones? Finale, probably one of the biggest TV moments in history is coming out of Sunday. Like, you wonder what what the heck the viewership is going to be the love to see that number afterwards. You know, live streams and everything else. Like, it's gonna be insane anyways. Yeah. Moving on. We're gonna talk some more. Talk some more motor sports with that. Here's an interview that I did my good friend one of my favorite drivers in. The paddock always always a fun guy to talk to you always got a smile on his face ninety percent of the time anyways. But I'll just just a great great personality James Hinchcliffe with Schmidt Peterson motorsports. One of my favorites. Guys guy. I've got to know pretty well. And he's also got amazing podcast. Let's check it out. But here's inch down this past weekend at the GP. All right. So we're here with James Hinchcliffe. And I gotta tell you we we're already starting out in some kind of good mood today, buddy. It's race day for a guy. That's hacking up a lung all day all night and starting twentieth. I'm not quite sure why I'm in such a good mood racetrack. Let's go racing. Well, we're not just racetrack road any van V racetrack. So that being said man, you know, we got a lot of talk about GP Indy. Five hundred all that coming up. I mean last time I cut up sometime mid season last year. I mean, lots changed since then. I know I know this whole team was really excited about twenty nineteen kind of take us through the season. So far, I know it's kind of been up and down probably some of the results you guys didn't want. But I mean, you guys looking at twenty nine because I know momentum you guys hadn't twenty eighteen was insane. And looking to carry it into this year. And you know, you guys are still one of the premier teams. It's just, you know, take us through the season, thus far if we sums up in a word, it'd be solid, you know, it's not been exceptional in any in any stretch. But we haven't had a lot of things go our way we've had actually quite a few things work against us. But we kind of just keep ticking off these these solid results. And you know last year you talking with the momentum we had coming into may. We were fifteen points coming into may this year without that sort of hype behind we're six points. So it's you know, it's still a pretty solid start even with the problems that code again hit by Felix air and just not having yellows far away. Whatever it's been. So we still need that little bit of a little bit of something special to kinda get up there and fight with the big big guys day in and day L, but the teams executing pretty well across the board. And we need to keep our heads down on race days. Trang keep doing well. So that being said, obviously, we're here at the GP you're talking about qualifying not potentially going the way you wanted. You know, it's weird especially with GP because you know, you look at times, and I mean, it's such narrow margins here, man. I mean, it's you know, it's one one tenth of a second can drop you seven eight spots. Crazy, man, it's incredibly competitive. But you know, it's kind of been like that everywhere. It's just such a competitive year in the car series right now. And in qualifying we decent pace on blacks in practice. The reds. We just couldn't get him switched on. And like you say just a couple of tenths drops you down a bunch of spots. And it's unfortunate. Obviously Jack did a great job. Again, the fast ex, but you know, Andretti's made it out a q one three of the four Penske's in make it out of q one. It's it's it was a weird day yesterday. And we were kind of caught up in it wasn't that kind of some of IndyCar this year, though. It's like it's anybody's game any any particular track? Nobody's jumped out and said, hey, we're we're the team to beat. You know a thousand percent, you know, I mean, I think always Joseph and Alex great job through the first four races. But. Neither one of them. Are starting particularly great today. It'll be interesting to see how everybody executes this afternoon. But you're right. I mean, we've had different winters that every race. And it's just coming down to whoever executes the best on a Sunday because there are plenty of guys lined up to capitalize on any little mistake or weakness, you guys have. So we gotta talk a little bit about the Indy. Five hundred coming up in. I know I guess, you know, the ten thousand pound gorilla in the room is, you know, it's like, you know, you obviously didn't have the Indy. Five hundred you wanted last year. You know, it's how you protein this year little bit different after what you experience, you know, that's one of those things. No driver, ever wants to have to go through, you know. And you found yourself on the outside looking in. How you pro ching this month a little bit different. Honestly, I'm trying not to because if you start thinking too much about last you can get your own head and our team is as well and truly moved on from what happened in eighteen. We know what happened. We know why it happened. We've prepared ourselves as we would any month of may, you know, you go into the offseason, you you work harder. You try and find more places to find an advantage and find a bit of speed. And we did the same thing as everybody else will live in the field as well. But you know, this is a team that a couple of years ago we were on pole. So I don't think we need to change anything drastic. I think last year was a series of unfortunate events that all sort of came together in a perfect storm, and we're heading into this month as we approach every month heads down dedicated pushing ourselves pushing equipment, and we just want to try and. Start up front and obviously win this race. What you don't talking about India's first oval on on the calendar this year. No, your spouse, Phoenix or are various other ovals that come before this round. Does that affect you? Guys are going to the biggest race of the year. You know? And it's like you haven't you haven't had the car and oval spec aside from testing before Indy. I think so I mean, it certainly is going to affect, you know, the rookies more than anything it's going to be harder for Marcus than if we'd had know race beforehand, but at the same time, you know, he's shown shown you got pretty comfortable in the oval pretty quickly. So I don't think it'd be too big a deal. Obviously this one we get forty hours of practice compared to like three hours of practice everywhere else that we go. So I think it'll be I think it will be enough time for everybody to kind of blow the dust off and getting noble over form trim, and hopefully we can put on a good show for the fence. So it'd be said we're here at you know, the GP kicking off the entire month. I mean, you know, this one I know you talk with some other drivers. And it's like man, we just kind of wanna get through this to the NBA. Five hundred. But you know, that point you know, like you said every it's anybody's game. This year points are still up for grabs. I mean, how do you this race? And then, you know, and then, you know, moving forward the entire month. It's one of the biggest challenges we have honestly because you can't ignore the GP. It's still a race. They're still fifty points on the line. It's it's just as important as anywhere else that we go, and it's so easy to get distracted by the five hundred coming up and trying to switch focus a little bit too soon. That's one of the that. It's one of the big challenges for teams Andrew ever. So we've got we know where we are. We know what we've got coming up, but we're just trying to stay focused on today. We've got to get through today. We wanna head in to practice week with a little bit of momentum from from the GP, and hopefully we can pull that off. I gotta ask you. Now. The fun stuff. I know you guys had few weeks between you know, between Long Beach. And now the GP. I know you like get your podcast going on. I know last year you jumped into the water at the Long Beach aquarium. I mean, what saints been doing for fun the past couple of weeks Becky night and renovating the house, so I've been cleaning up stuff and opening boxes and moving furniture and just be very runs on even. Yeah, we're just basing been very domestic the last couple of weeks. It's been nice not traveling anywhere. But it's been far from relaxed. Let's put it that way. Sometimes you like craving I need to get back to the racetrack. I don't like this domestic that work getting back to work idle hands you like, no, I can't do this. Exactly. Right. Exactly. Right. All right. Well, I appreciate the time hands fan always fun catching up, and I guess I guess Hinch town is now Indianapolis this week. Right. We are. We are based at roughly sixteen the Georgetown for the next few weeks comes up by and say, Hello. All right. Thanks pleasure. All right. That was Hinch town James Hinchcliffe big up to my friends at S P M for and set that up and Hinch always fun having him on on the show. Never never disappoints. That's for sure. I one of my favorite personalities in the paddock. And now like I said, you actually, I mean if you're in new not just motor sport. But just podcast in general, like pop culture, whatever the the the podcast at and Rossy have is ridiculously good. I mean, like really really good definitely worth worth subscribing to the download they didn't not just like IndyCar talk. They do talk about any car. But they talk about pop culture and a bunch of other stuff. Like, it's become become one of my favorite podcasts worth worth the subscription over there on ITN's here a podcast person. You know, you can binge listen to them and things like that. So definitely definitely check that one out when if and when you have the chance, but yeah. So. Yeah. Hinch town things. I don't know. He had kind of an up and down run there at the at the GP, obviously alternately didn't quite work out the way he wanted them to. But I gotta say, you know, going into going into the Indy. Five hundred you gotta think, you know. He's definitely one of. I don't wanna call him a dark horse because you know, he's a guy you think about a lot. But I would say, you know, after what he went through last year. This guy is going to have a chip on his shoulder. He didn't wanna be that outside looking in type guy. Like, my guest is this guy is going to be on a mission. And he's going to be one of the guys to beat at Indy. This year. None of this bubble stuff. Like, I think he's gonna qualify in early. And he is definitely going to be a a threat to take the victory. I don't know if you'll be fast nine good. But I think that wouldn't surprise me if he was, but I think cancer is definitely wanted to watch is the next couple of weeks play out at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Definitely one of my picks to be a front runner in the month of may one way or another definitely definitely after last year outside know outside looking in he'd never want to be in that position again.

And I gotta say you've got to be happy with the way things have been going so far. Click and practice one actually, but yeah, we were quickest and practice to get ready for qualifying here in a little bit not really changing that much if anything maybe just some some very very very fine tuning and and changing gears a little bit for for the conditions. Maybe but that's it. Well, let me and said, I know this is it's been an interesting year for you guys new team fresh start, and I know early on I think he kind of had everybody kinda watching because he just went to that first test circuited America's and you are ridiculously quick, you know, and then make everybody knew come into that race. You know, you wanna watch. And you went in and one that how how that feeling get your first IndyCar win and kind of get that that quick to get that monkey off your back. Yeah. It was really good. You know? Okay. Yeah. It was it was really good to like the monkey off the back. And and obviously, it's not something that was like dwelling on me. Like I had to do that moment in time because it was a it was third race in. So so, you know, obviously had a lot of second race in. Wasn't it second race of the year? Second race of the and yes, so you know, obviously in a rookie campaign. You don't expect to be doing that? Well that quick. And by no means was I expecting or the team expecting that of me. But you know, it's kind of like the perfect current events and everything just came came together. And it was you know, like a perfect day pitstops for great. This speed was there and even a little bit of luck. So having said we're moving in here. I mean, this is month of may. I know us, you know, you've been here before you know, in Indy lights and things like that growing up. You you know, you were here with your dad and things like that. I mean looking at things a year ago this weekend, you took the win here in Indy lights, you know, now fast forward a year, you're running in an IndyCar, you know, how how you perching this kind of kick off to the month of may and qualifying later today and just race weekend in general. Definitely laid back. You know, we had really good test here. So I kinda know that we can be quick if we get it. Right. But it is a very quick event. You know, today's Friday Saturday two practice sessions today, and we're getting into qualifying which which doesn't feel right. You know, feels like we should have a night sleep before we're getting qualifying. But. You know, obviously, it's a good thing that they do it for mother's day. But yeah, just a little laid back. Definitely don't want want this weekend to to get over looked for the five hundred or let the five hundred distract us from this weekend because we're still need points. And we still need to do. Well, and yeah, so taking taking it one day at a time. Well, maybe instead, I think that, you know, this is an interesting year because you know, talking about the five hundred you know, it's it's actually the first oval on the calendar. Most years you've got Phoenix you've got some oval, you know, to kind of prep yourself use a rookie coming in. I mean, the first one is the big one. How is that for you? You know what I mean? Because obviously you haven't been in one of these cars in old race quite yet. I mean, are you pro ching that just because there's going to be your first big over race in in car series? There's really no way to prep for it except for just get in. And do it you need to gain experience from driving and gaining screens in the car. Fortunately, we do have a lot of practice timing at two weeks of practice before the five hundred which will be able to run in behind cars and stuff and and get the feel the car between race trim and quality trim. So not really too worried about it. But definitely you know, maybe out laps in laps. That'll be some delay out for that. I might not have quite have the pace on quite yet. Something like that. I mean, obviously, you know, you're you got some veterans around you. But speaking of that, I mean, obviously, you've got your dad, you know, and he's been here. He's raised are things you rely on him where you can go and just pick his brain and ask him questions, you know, him and Allen to junior who works for the team time IndyCar winner two time. Sorry, thirty two time IndyCar winter two-time Indy. Five hundred winner. And he always knows a lot. My dad knows a lot too. Great sources to pick the brain, obviously, my dad's working for Marco who's been here number of times. I think it's eleven or twelve Indy. Five hundred so I'll be able to pick his reign of it as well. But yeah, plenty of resources for me is so that'd be said, I know you got some big announcements far sponsor, you know, a little bit little bit different look going into this weekend. You know, that's gotta have you guys excited. We got guest by gas on the car, and obviously a really excited to to have them on the car for only this weekend. But the rest of the year, and obviously they'll be primary for the rest of the year. And they're really doing great stuff. It's clean gas. And it's a bit of an alternative to fossil fuels. So, you know, it's something that's that's not only good for for us as team to the environment. So I'm all for it. So you know, all that being said, obviously, we're races into rookie season. I mean, you know, I think you had a good idea what to expect this year. I mean, anything that was unexpected as far as, you know, this, you know, the championship so far. No, not really I think once we got through the first round or two, and I kind of understood how the tires work throughout the race. And how the tire day happens. I think that helped me a lot. So so, yeah, I think once you kinda got through that face actually less surprises started coming up, and I got more comfortable attraction looking forward to outside of month of may. Detroit will be fun Toronto probably mostly foreign to Toronto. That's obviously a great event that a lot of people to and I loved racing on the streets. And I love the the city as well. So what's what's it gonna take for you to put it on the poll and then obviously on race day? You know, obviously come away. I guess would be considered back to back wins at the GP even though one lights one here. That's what's it gonna take to make this weekend. Victorious can take a lot of hard work. A lot of focus. I'm not for it though. And I know the teams up for it car's been great all weekend. So if he can just continue this trend, it's going to take a very good lap to get on poll. But I think we have the car to do it. But we'll just have to wait and see. All right. Well, thanks a lot. Good luck. Thank you. Yeah. So right there. We had half the rookie, which is interesting now, we're going to roll right into an interview with the legend Sebastian board. A all right. So we're out here in beach EP catching up with Sebastian board day. I know things you guys just come off the last practice for the race. Things seem to be working pretty good for you guys right now. Deceiving speech to pastors who put two sets of tyres we did. So I think we look a little bit. And we really are which just been struggling a little bit finding the right balance. But I mean, racist whole different animals. So we'll see we'll see how things shake out just trying to get a good result for that. Geico. Geico car well, never said this race in particular. No, you know, you've had you've been able to run up front here in the past. I mean, you know, what makes us, you know, this track is tough to pass easy to pass. I mean is this one, you know, you've started a little bit farther back. You know, you're gonna have a fight to the front. How how is it to move traffic here? Place to pass your thing with long straights. You can make moves and stuff. But you know, you always run other trimmed here and and stuff to stay close and get yourself. You'll put unity you you tend to hurt the tires re quickly as well. When when you're in traffic because you lose too much downforce. So it's usually not an easy easy place to pass. But. A lot of the times the gaps are so small between the cars this Renault that many corners. So. You you really try to do the best you can to make moves, but it's stuff. Stuff to Bassett car pretty much going Saint speed. You are so re as long as nobody qualifies seriously out of position. It becomes a pretty tricky deal fairly quickly. Well, never said, you know, you talked about, you know, this season, so far, you know, you guys aren't too far out of it in the points. She guys, you know, gathered some pretty good points. You know, this is the month of may this is kind of the kickoff. This is the one that everybody likes to get through and then get to Indy five hundred qualifying in that but a lot of points on the line. How do you how do you this race knowing that you've got the month of may coming up and qualifying next week in that one time? Yeah. It's it's this one's important. It's it's an event. And then you see next week. We're going we're going for. Qualifying and hopefully will will have the speed. Think home that has made you know, some serious gained. So police we show that you know, last year where Festus home and. We can stay that way. And and make little progress on one step at a time. We do that looking forward to a good results. And then in the five hundred is always the. The the peak of the the whole month. And I I don't know. I mean, it's going to be all depends so much on the weather you run the whole week, and you don't almost run the next week. And then you go racing. So a lot of things can change last year was obviously extremely hot which which made it really tricky five. Everybody's and made it Vivus daddy grace. So we'll just take this one go through the grand prix and switch switch focus for or the speedway. Well talking about the speedway. I know two years ago you had a great run going. And then we know about the accident last you had an amazing run. I mean when you're qualifying day one the most important get into that fast nine so you're locked in. And you know, then you can actually go and fight for position. But you don't have to worry about anything else. You know, being that we know there's thirty six cars this year and everything else you never know where you're going to be. But I mean, obviously going being the fastest one. Last year. You hope that you're gonna have enough speed to not reword about making the field. Then for sure if you feel like you gotta shot up the fuss nine you. You got to be, you know, put the foot down and really try very hard. Because first of all it's a security and then second now like you say you can start from from the the tip of the the great. So it's it's a big, plus, especially if it gets really hot, you don't have to deal with so much traffic. And we'll like I said, I mean, we we haven't really switched modes yet. But looking looking forward to it, and hopefully, we'll we'll have enough speed to to be a contender again. Well and use a driver IndyCar season starts off a little bit a little bit kinda slow. You know, it's you got race. And then a couple of weeks off race now in the stretch where you've got you know, GP you've got qualifying the five hundred you've got the Detroit double you've got Texas. I mean, it's a lot of pressure on a driver and a lot of focus. You gotta keep how do you approach this next five six weeks where you're just on the road and in the car all the time. Fluorescence even worse because it's eight weekends in the rose starting Metohija last week in the Ford. So yeah, desma Mon between Texas and road America. It's yeah. Weekend's right in a row. So it's it's a big stretch at something pretty accustomed do them. And it's been going on for a while now. So and nothing really new, but yeah, it it takes stole for sure. You just gotta make sure you you recover enough. And then you got your sleep, right? Then everything. But so so what we love doing so nothing nothing wrong with that. Well, looking at your career, obviously, you know, you've got you've gone and raced Formula one you've got, you know, you went four straight championships there and champ car. I mean, what would an Indy five hundred win. What would what would that be on Sebastian board as list of accomplishments doesn't matter who it is? It's it's the pinnacle of you'll carrier. And then you know, you you win that you in you in the twenty four overall, you know, it's it's those mystic legendary races. That just don't mean the same don't count the same as the others. So you don't even want to think too much about it. But you know, if. Whatever happens is going to be one of the greatest day you've ever had. So we let you go one last question. You know, you got the GP start here. You know, you're starting back their belief tenth. How do you press your first lap? Is it go time try, and you know, try and pass a couple of guys right off the bat and kind of make your way towards the front. You have to be aggressive. If you're not aggressive. You're gonna get hit. So you have to be on the move. Make sure you don't hit anybody. But. It's it's always a bit big of big funnel down turn one. So and then it continues going to turn seven two. So you have to be aggressive and control. All right. Well, thanks, a lots of bashing good luck today. Thank you. Sebastian Boorda this guy. It's one of those where every time I interview it's kind of humbling you look at this guy. He's run Formula one to four champ car championships there. I mean was a Newman Haas McDonald's sponsored car like this guy was legend won so many races. Still one of the fastest guys on the grid. And you know, he took those two years and went to Formula one. And you know, we've had this talk on the show before like, I think his accomplishments alone put him up with a great. But you know, he literally could have been the greatest of all time. I think if he wouldn't have gone and done that Formula one stint not that I disagree one one bit. You know, everybody wants this driver wants to be in Formula one. And you know, he can say he did that. But man, you gotta think like this guy is going to go down as one of the greats ever could have been the greatest, you know, if you would've stayed here in IndyCar, but you know, water under the bridge at this point Sebastian board.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by Palermo razor, Jim beaver along with Chris Leoni who was out at the Indianapolis GP with me this past weekend. Welcome to the show. Chris, I know you, and I both have some crazy crazy travel. I don't know. I didn't even tell you my full thing. I ended up spending the night in Indy. And then I ended up in Detroit. And then I ended up back in Phoenix at ten AM on Sunday. So yeah, it was an eventful years was eventful, and I were texting and about the time. I woke up on Sunday to get on my flight, you were still like driving home. Like, I don't know how our travel got so screwed up, dude. Yeah. Jim it which it was. I mean, I didn't get the bed until five thirty in the morning. I you know, I just had the power through for the most part by the time. We finally took off at two in the morning. I mean, we just had all sorts of screwing things going on. You know, I know there were whether issues down in Charlotte. That's where I connected, and then, you know, try to head back boss that I mean, we got delayed because there was such a backup. We got our gating two terminals over we finally get on the plane back out the plane, and they say, oh, the maintenance certificates expired says somebody's gotta come over and do that. And then they couldn't get anybody for forty five minutes. So we just got these tell with backing out, you know, and thinking we were ready to go. And then have the pullback in was not a great experience. Probably be shifting my line loyalty, but I'm not gonna say he names at this point. But jeez, what a what a mess that? Was you can't control the weather? There are some things that you can go and. I think one of them is offering things like when we didn't even get that. So what a what is that trying to get out of for both of us? But that doesn't take away from an amazing days that we have their audience -ly lot of interviews on this week and next week show with some of the sport's top drivers. So we've got plenty to be excited about we just had to go through hell and back to get home. Well, funny part about mine was not even being weather. So the real story was we had a plane. It was sitting there all along. We actually had a pilot and co-pilot who were in wherever the lounges that the pilots and co pilots hang out. We had everything they didn't have flight attendants. It couldn't get flight attendants for like five hours, and they ended up finally cancel the flight because it can get flight attendants. So it was weird. But in their defence literally this morning, I got hit with a full refund for my flight. So like, I can't my Bank account literally the money hit. So I'm like how bad can you complain? They actually gave me my money back. Didn't even argue nothing. You know? So I don't know I it was a bad weekend. But I'm like, you know, I'll give it another shot. They treated me, right. At least after the fact sounds like you didn't. But. They didn't treat you. Right. But anyways, we could we could talk airline horror stories all day long. But the thing about this weekend was there was some good racing across the board. I mean IndyCar phenomenal race. We'll get into that. Power rankings. It was weird this week. Chris. I mean, there there wasn't actually I mean NASCAR Formula one formula, drift IndyCar. But there wasn't like it wasn't a massive weekend. We didn't have any. We didn't have any offroad series running anything like that. But there were still some really really solid performances. Absolutely. I mean, the only other thing other than what you named was. You know w are seat was down in Philly. So we had we had some pretty intense racing action motor sports going on in on three different continents. So it kind of interesting because I mean, you think NASCAR Bacar have wanted kind of the big three for a lot of you know, certainly pavement motorsport fans here in America. And they were all an accident. But you know, we cover so much. We follow so much that for us. It's a light weekend for everybody else. It might be a huge weekend. But for us it, you know, we able to just sort of focus on four or five series instead of nine or ten you know, I mean once we get past Indianapolis that weekend. After is just you know, it is is motor sport Christmas. Everybody is an action that weekend. So compared to that. I mean, this is easy to keep track of I was able to watch everything Oprah album. Yeah. Well that being said, let's let's roll into things. Chris who who did you have at number five on your list? Well, on the fate of the end doc who isn't a fan of the underdog motor sports. And I gotta show some love to Jack Harvey over at mire sank racing. Michael shank work into get into IndyCar for years. Finally teamed up with us Schmidt Peterson you know, who are some of ours have race program. They put Jack Harvey and with see Jack rant a few races. Last year. He's got more than half the season schedule this year and Jackson breakout. We get made the fast six the first time had a great start to jump right into second. He's putting pressure on Dixon for the lead. I mean, I'm just surprised. You know, Scott Dixon, got thinking always going to be very hard drive to the past. But you know, I'm surprised with how strong they were that. I don't Jack really lead any laps regardless. Still got that first podium finish, you know, that's incredibly strong performance. More impressive that never driven it IndyCar in the wet before. So don't yet podium and do that in the rain. I mean, they they been talking broadcast about how Jack said, you know, I'm pretty capable rain driver. He absolutely proved that because if you go out, and you get a potent rain in a car that you've never driven the rain before you're doing something. No, I I completely agree with you there. And I've kind of around about way got Jack Harvey on my list, but we'll get to that in a minute. But no arguments phenomenal performance by him. I think one of the big things that I love about IndyCar is it's so competitive that team like Meyer shank that's part time can come in. And obviously, I've got a good partner team there with SPN IndyCar. But you know, I think it's it's says something where teams can come in. And they can do the work and they can be competitive. You know, how many times have we seen a team in Formula one come in? And you know, you just know you're just going to be a back marker for the rest of whatever, you know, and formula ones that weird anomaly, but even NASCAR it's hard. If you're one of those teams, the part time to come in and cracked, the top ten, and I think that's one thing that makes IndyCars specialist got a team like, you know, shake that can you know, they've obviously got a capable driver there. But you know, it's one of the things I really really love about about IndyCar but coming. In at number five on my list. Yes, I'm going to the NASCAR world. We had Brad Kozlowski who took the big win there at Kansas kind of surprise victory out of nowhere. But took his third victory on the season. Which now moves him into the top five points. Now granted I didn't get a chance to really watch that because I was stuck in the airport as this race was going on. But I did read quite a bit on the performance. I don't know if you were able to catch up on the end of the NASCAR race or anything like that. But I don't know it was it was a heck of a performance by 'cause Laskey kind of a surprise victory. Third on the season. He's got a lot of momentum right now moving back into this points points race and had have Brad Kozlowski at number five on my list. Chris. Jim I'm going to stay in the NASCAR world number four. But I'm actually picking the guy that he beat Alex Bowman. I mean, we've talked about in the house how power rankings are primarily the past seven days. But if you've got momentum's than it's gonna factor in and Alex Bowman has been the bridesmaids three weeks in a row. I mean, he is just pounding on the door of victory for Hendrick motor sports. You know, it's great. I'm sure for a lot of the longtime NASCAR fan to see the eighty eight back running towards the front. You know, obviously when Bill junior retired. That was a big blow the sport in terms of, you know, on-track personalities, but let the hates nickname bone in the show is pretty fitting for him because he's a real talented young driver that I win is just around the corner. I think and you know, it's it's a bummer that it didn't happen for this weekend in Kansas obvious because allow sqi cut the best of him late in the race. But you know, Alex Bowman is one of nascar's. Best bright young stars. And I think he's got some really big thing to head of them. I think that he is absolutely going to be a playoff driver this year. I'm not sure how far he's gonna make it. But I think he in that teams, you know, he and his team absence series potential. The Chevrolets seem to be turning it around a bit and catching up to the Fords. Toyotas. So you know, that I've up omen that number for because I see a lot of good things to come, and, you know, the past few weekends. He has been made the best. Dr getting just doesn't have that win to show for it tends to happen once in a while sometimes hottest driver isn't necessarily getting the winds, but you know, three second places in a row that's gonna keep you in the points race for sure. But for gets a mind number four it is time for us. Take a short commercial break.

Walk back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by Polaris razor, Jimmy recruits Leoni here a dissecting the weekend in motor sports. We both both got through our number five picks we moved into number four Chris has his number four pick in his power inking. Alex Bowman second place in winter Kansas this weekend and NASCAR. I am moving from my number four pick. And I'm thinking Chris may have him just a little bit higher up on his list than I possibly do. There was so many good performances this weekend. I've got Frederick Osmo your formula drift winter coming in at number four Oslo, I would say you look at the past. Path decade in formula d especially the past three to four years. He's been one of the most dominant if not the most dominant driver in FDA, and obviously that doesn't factor into our power endings. But I don't know what's going on at Papa dacas. They're always one of the premier teams. But he's just I don't know. He just hasn't been able to crack that win in in in a while now. And it's weird because he went on a binge there where it was like Osborne every single weekend. But Oslo back in the winter circle in formula d Atlanta, which I will note he had willan at every single track on the formula drift calendar up until this weekend. He had never taken a victory at Atlanta took the victory to Lanta moose him into second points. He's smack dab right in that points jas now, and he did beat in the final round Ryan Turku's, another good friend of mine. And that's where I was torn Chris like you've got Turkey. And you've got you know, Oswal in the final round like Turk hasn't won in quite a while either. It's like man, you're torn you got to your friends or they're doing. Battle in. You know, it's just it's interesting when that plays out, and if Turk would won he would have been in the same exact spot on my list as Frederick Otto. But gotta give a big shout out to Frederick Osmo for the big FD win. Lutely. Game. And I do have Frederick on my list, and we'll get to him a ni- end a little bit later. But one of the reasons why it's so easy for me to do pal rankings on Formula one besides the fact that the winners seemed to be more and more obvious than your everything that we can we go out is the fact that we don't have friends to worry about Neff one. And so putting Lewis Hamilton and number three is a pretty easy task for me Lewis and voluntary boathouse over at McLaren. I mean, Hamilton boathouse have been one to every single race this year for Mercedes. I say McLaren Mercedes, I'm I'm still out into ten years ago sometimes with raising. But Hamilton say what? Mcclair nam relevant awhile McLean fan here. But just saying I mean, we'll call spate of spayed here. I'm sorry. I'm excited about for Nando. So coming back to Indy with the glare. And I've obviously not that on my mind a little bit. But you know, those cars I'd silver anymore. So little slip up there. But yeah Lewis it handles Mercedes third win of the season out in Spain. You know, he's got the points lead. It's really going to be a battle between those two drivers. But one of the more interesting things I've seen is. I think we're getting back to the period of Mercedes dominance last year. They have four one two finishes between their drivers. And granted part of that was because both house had a pretty rough year. But now to start the season they are five for five on one probably sweets, and whether you like it, whether you hate it, whether it's entertainment value at all that's impressive in any form of motor sport. And so I've gotta get Pam. In my number three spot. You know, he's even admitted that it kinda gets a little when you don't have another team. That's right up there competing with you. Hopefully, whether it's for our red bull. Somebody gets figured out and starts really taking the fight back to the Mercedes team. But no for the meantime, every time that they take a victory. They've basically got to be a con on my collar ranking list unless it's just that much of a does race. Well, and you know, honestly, you're gonna make my number three very very easy because Lou Hamilton number three on my list is well so for once we are actually on the same page on something Chris, but yeah, Louis Hamilton, everything you said, I I'm looking at my notes and literally word for word. You took the words right out of my out of my mouth, you want a little bit farther into things, and I would have. But yeah. Third win the year points lead Spain Spain victory this weekend. I think the big thing for me is is. All roads lead to Monaco or two weeks out from the Monaco grand prix. And this is an event. The obviously Lou Hamilton is one before it's, you know, basically the Indy five hundred formula their biggest of the year. And I love this one because the race kind of plays. I don't know the qualifying is actually more important than the race in Monaco. And and for Formula one fans L understand that, but I really love, Monaco. But the track is so old, and you know, it's you know, there's just not a lot of passing room. Like there was you know, years and years and decades ago when the cars are smaller and things like that like I'm really excited about Monaco, mainly because I think Louis Hamilton has a chance to lose. And you know, I think, you know, read Buller for our or some, you know, one of the other teams could put together a really really solid qualifying running get up front somehow, someway, I think we may actually see this dominance that we've seen this year. I think you know, I think there might be a chink in the armor. So I'm very very excited about Monaco, especially about qualified and see how things play out now flu Hamilton gets a in Monaco. It's game over for everybody. But and I'm a Hamilton fan. I'm just saying like you you wanna see some competitiveness. Just like you said Hamilton said, hey, you know, I like, you know, having a competitive field. It's kind of boring to run away with things. So I don't know. I think Monaco is going to be a very very interesting one this year, Chris. Oh, no doubt. Jim speaking competitive fields. I told you we were coming back the Frederick house phone, he's my number two the FD failed. Now that OD buckets got knocked off the top spot Midland. It seems like the seasons really going to start to break wide open. You know, you had Turkey and you had James Dean. I believe Michael Esa was the fourth driver in the final four correct me if I'm wrong, but we started to get a little bit of a little bit of turnover in the top few spots from Atlanta now that we're into sees, you know, some of you know, some of these more prominent venues, I think that the top of the standings might get shaken up a little bit ody's got a pretty big lead right now, but I've definitely within striking distance. And you know, it's still early enough in the season that one bad run for anybody can really turn things over. But you know, credit the Frederick though, he is the winningest driver in the history, and he's just extended that Ma. Mark in Atlanta. It's gonna be really exciting to see him ODI. You know, James Dean, try to defend the title on and on and on there so evenly matched. And especially with being a judge sport. It is so hard to break out. So we'll be exciting to see how that even plays out. But yeah, I had those might number two. No arguments there, I think Oslo, you know, I think we're both going to have the same number one. And rightfully so I think everything below that was kind of a toss up at this point. But my my number two, I'm gonna do something. Interesting. Just because you know, you we talked about Formula one, you know, we've talked about a lot of different things today and throughout the year in motor sport. But I'm going to put it number two mainly because of the amazing race. We saw IndyCar number two and reason why is like, you know, you'd mentioned Jack Harvey in, you know, in what he did for shanking, the, you know, we we haven't even talked about the fourth place finish that Matisse least took for AJ Foyt, which is massive massive for J Foyt. To take that fourth place finish right off the podium. I mean, they like they said they're like this is a victory for our team. But the thing is when you've got guys like Harvey and least who, you know, an, and you know, he qualified I think back in twenty first in charged up to fourth. He was in for a podium spot. I gotta put into cars a whole because a lot of people go while they're not as fast as Formula one formula faster coda, well any cars slow their ridiculously fast, but they the competitiveness of IndyCar where it's anybody's game anybody can win on any given weekend. And if you're an eighteenth place car, and you you know, you put together a good event you have a shot at a top five and potentially a podium like to me. That's what makes IndyCar special. I think that's why the ratings are going up sponsors are getting involved. You know, if you you know, you can side by side, I don't care for your European, and you watch this show, and you know, you want Formula one to be the premier motor sport. It is a premier motorsport, but you could watch the race at the GP and the race of Barcelona side by side on your TV's. And I tell you what your eyes are going to be focused on the IndyCar race. Because the Formula one race is just going to be so dang boring. So I had any cars a whole at number two on my list because they had an amazing event this weekend at the GP are at Chris moving into number one. We've got looks like about two and a half minutes left. And I think what both probably on the same page of this one. Who do you have a number one? I'm pretty sure we are. And and you know, it's funny that you mentioned earlier that we were on the same page for number three and that never happened. But it happens a lot with us for number one. And it's because usually the driver who stands out the most over the weekend is just blatantly obvious. And we have to go into the team tends to camp. I think we have to give it to sign signing pageant out for that remark. Arquebuses drive that he had you know to win the Indy-Car free for the third time. He will power still the only drivers and six years have ever won that race. And they eat they divided them evenly three three and the most impressive thing to me about the wave pageant owed. Drove that race is the fact that he made all of those passes at the end with absolutely no push the past. Exactly it was. I mean, that's incredible. That's what the fact that. Yeah. Tracking count Scott Nixon like that budget, real you don't you don't out Dr Scott Birdman, you know, that's just one that you don't out Dr Scott Dixon. That's a given. Nobody can out Dr Scott Dixon. But yet we saw as you know out Dr Scott Dixon. Like, I was like what are we watching here Dixon does not get past? Hey, here's the one thing to remember house. You know was a sports car driver for quite a while. And he ran the mob. Prototypes with Peugeot and. And you know, driving those cars, you get pretty darn good. You know? And I mean, my understanding is that who's put their drivers through a lot of rain training. And so I like that is always going to excel the wet. But I mean watching pageant drive like that. I mean, I was a little young to be able to watch guy like Ayrton Senna, you know, driving the rain, but you've heard stories, you know, you see clips you may not have seen as it was happening. You know in real time. But you know, you hear the stories about it. You see things like that. I mean pageant odes drive in the wet this weekend is one of those rain drives that I'm gonna remember for the rest of my life. Yeah. No arguments by me on that for sure buddy.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by foot laris razor Jim beaver along. With Tiffany, stone hair. Just I don't got another one of our segments. I don't know. I was Mr. excitement this week in teast on you're just kind of parked on the couch at home, right? Pretty much. I went up to the lake got some stuff ready for the summer. You know, it's just getting everything cleaned up. And honestly, I kinda just chilled and did nothing I have three weekends off. So, you know, just as much as anybody else when you have those weekends off you kind of hold them near and dear to your heart, and you like tiny wanna do something. But I honestly don't wanna move. And so that's kind of what I did this past weekend. If you're like me, your home, and it's a weekend. You have absolutely nothing. Like don't get me wrong. We always have something to do. But if you're not like at a race or event or something like that. It's like something like I dunno. It's like, I I'm it's often my world. It's like it's like, whoa. What's going on here? Like, it's so weird. Like when your home on a weekend? It's like, okay. Now, what did I used to do like I can't remember over my hobbies Ackley? And so that was the case, of course, yesterday was mother's day and stuff. So I went to dim sum with my mom, and like I finally post about her today. And like, I don't know if that's a good signer of. Outside. It's like I was enjoying time. Hang Yeltsin mom, the idea the post about her. But then you get everybody who's on, you know, social media, and they're like, you're so in fun sedate, he didn't post about your mother. And like I was with the most of the day. Like, I think she knows what her and I care about her, and she doesn't even have Instagram social media. So how she going to Steve? You know, what it's funny too. 'cause like me, you know, we travel like, you're like me like, we have some of the most amazing people, we call friends people other people would say are celebrities, and this, and that, you know, like, I'm with these people a lot, and you know, what like my social media doesn't reflect that. Because like, here's these people that I'm, you know, I'm friends with and they're like influencers, I guess I ought to be like, hey, let's take a selfie together. Snap snap can throw it up on the Graham. Like, I guess I would probably get more followers that way. But to me, it's like these people my friends, I don't wanna make it awkward and the NBA. I didn't even think about that. So I get it like with your mom. You're just like, oh, I'm having a good time. And I'm enjoying the moment. Let's not ruin it with social media. Exactly. And so it's just you know, it's a catch twenty two because everybody's always like, well, how come you don't just like so my posting it for you or 'cause like I said, I'm just media hashing to sees any any of this. That's funny. I love your pictures of your mom, though. 'cause like like, I can tell like, she's I I don't know. Like me looking at them like I'll bet she's a firecracker. She's probably like very like common collected. But I bet she's got some spice to all. Right. I mean, I had half. Asian my mom is from Thailand. Do not do not. We all mentions deep down inside. We won't just just run choppy. Now, my mom, she's she's awesome. The older that I get you know, when you're like eighteen early twenties. Like, I don't wanna be like my parents. But then when you grow up, and you become our age kind of like, oh, okay. We'll let you understand. Why do this? And now hit why I'm so frustrated with, you know, little things my mom because I knew the same exact thing. It is funny. The way things like I've had people say that about me. And my dad, you know, as they get older and everything they're like man, you just like your dad. I'm like like, you know, at one point you would have been like hell, no. You know what I mean? Like, what are you talking about? I'm not like my dad now like certain things, and they say that I'm like, I take that as a compliment. You know what I mean? Like, I, you know. So it's like things like that. It comes full circle, you know. Exactly some that ten like he wanna tell me. I'm like, I will take that as a country and my mom's bad ass, the hope, and it's always so funny. 'cause you know, if he's not me, I'm I'm pretty tall for a female. I'm like five eight my dad's six one six two, but my mom is literally five foot. Maybe maybe four Levin. I'm not too sure. But she is a tiny person. And also if you've seen my Jeep in person, you also know it's lifted in its unbathed thirty five so I can't imagine how difficult it's going to be for her either. When I move up to the thirty seven or thirty nine or even push to forty she's gonna like the hardest time get in there. And like some guy was like, I think she needs to step stool, and like I think she does have to buy like an old beater like Ford, Focus or something like that. And like just like one that's got like three hundred thousand miles on it and just keep apart. But when you have to take your mom's somewhere. He roll out in the focus or something. No, well, I have my three hundred so my three hundred hours. I don't like life spectrum on carve yuko because like I grew up in Michigan. Okay. So I grew up in metro Detroit. But where I like kind of went to high school. We had dirt roads when I was growing up. Okay. So that kind of tells you kind of country in that aspect, and you know, miles far everywhere, I grew up on five acres. You know, we had a bar and all this other stuff. And then then I have another part of me that lives so close the metro Detroit that I like this little hood side of these folks like my I have a lifted Jeep and then lowered Chrysler three hundred twenty that's all black out. Yeah. You you're like completely. I don't know. What what do they call that with multiple personalities like which t stone? Are we going to get today? Vehicle. Schizophrenia. Exactly. So no. It was funny. Not funny. It sucked at the time. But went to the GP spent a couple of days in Indianapolis. And then it was supposed to fly out Saturday evening. Get to the get to the airport like right on time and all your planes delayed by fifteen minutes. I'm like big fifteen minutes. Right. Five hours later. We're sitting at the airport, and I'm sitting at the airport probably got a little bit of a buzz by then because what you do in the airport when you there for five hours you drink. And the pilots there the co pilots there in the plane is there, and it's been sitting there for like five hours, and they finally they cancel the flight. And all of us are going. We're looking at the plane. We're looking at the pilot what's going on come to find out. They had a flight attendant shortage. So yeah, there was no stewardesses. So they had to cancel our flight because of that. And then they go. Oh, yeah. By the way, since we've waited six hours to cancel this flight. We can't get you out Sunday. We're going to have to get you guys out on Monday. And I'm like so now mothers day everything's just shot. We spend the airport. I'm like new. So I go in that was American. So I go to Delta's website start looking and they had a flight like six AM to Detroit, and then had a layover for quite a while in Detroit and everything else. I'm like man if this just went worked out, right? I just wanna taking flight to Detroit on Saturday would win bought t stone dinner, we could hung out and then Sunday, flown Phoenix or something like totally screwed up, but wouldn't planning on the travel shenanigans shenanigans either. So but part of me is like us make it to Detroit and then. I know I got a friend there at least, you know. Well, and that's a good thing about like you're saying about traveling all over you have friends and all the most random places like if I wanted to go to Green Bay, I probably hang out the grease there. You know, I wanted to go to the northern UP. I could hang out the climate there and stuff, and it's just like the cool thing that you learned from hanging out or working or traveling and stuff, and I don't know it's kinda fun. But I've been on Fleiss before where they haven't had a flight attendant. And I'm like, okay, I've been on a flight in for Jim delayed for three hours because the overhead bin would not shut. They literally had to call somebody to come do that. And then they finally take it. I'm like, why don't we just take good way? What it was like it was like, well, it was crazy. It was like all the flight attendants. So I guess they were flying from Mike Boston to Charlotte Charlotte to Indy, and then they were going to fly from India to Phoenix. And the thing was is the flight attendants weren't actually active on those other flights. They were just trying to get them to Indy, and I guess the flights. I was just like it was complete. Like, I don't know. It was their logistics. Whoever did the logistics on that one should have been fired. It was not. But are by. Yeah. So yeah that was my weekend. But Indy GP was solid. Yes. Funny because we're in that stretch now. So I'm you know, I saw the Indy. But I know even talk about the drivers in this crazy stretch where I know they go to your neck of the woods, Detroit GP here in a couple of weeks right after five hundred for that double. And it's funny because everybody's like the drivers all look forward to that. They don't look forward to this. Stretch their on where it's like race after ace after ace. But it's funny because like multiple drivers like we're excited to go to Detroit. We're talking Indy. Five hundred and they're already kind of talking about the Detroit GP, I thought that was kinda interesting. Came something different, especially 'cause they do the delivery trait. So that's something that's a little bit different. And what kind of unique about it? Is you get to see two race, weekends and one? And it's on a road course. But we're technically on an island. The road is not like the pavement, obviously is not the best of the best. So it's a little different. You have to have a lot of like body straights to keep those calls like 'cause you know, you're. I Jim I wish you would have just called me because then I could've taken it abou- Lyle could've seen everything, but it's kinda cool different. And then there's so much hype for the Indy five hundred. But I also think that once they get to the Detroit grand prix that they know Indy. Five hundreds over the the dual over there's nothing more that you can do. And then you just continue about your seasons. One. It's what's weird like everything with any car like comes to complete pause in the month of may like may have the GP at Indy which I was at and the drivers kind of almost not even thinking about that thinking about the next two weeks of qualifying weekend in Indy. Five hundred like literally it's like the biggest Super Bowl the year smack dab like NASCAR has there's to start the year. You know, like most series have it like at one end or the other. You know, it's like indie carts. Like, no, we're gonna throw the big one writes smack in the middle off road thousand see end of the year Crandon. It's the end of the year like Indy cars the weird one where the biggest race years right in the middle. You know? So it's like thinking about points, but they're also thinking about this big epic win. And I think that's one thing that's kinda wild about India. It's the way that kinda always out and plays plays out. You know? No. And yeah, I guess I never really kind of thought about it in that aspect, but you're right NAT Carcelle starts off with the clash and the five hundred right in the beginning of the season, you know, even towards the end of NASCAR they have the chase. And so I guess that is kind of cool that you have such a big thing shooting, Bobby and such a huge following that. They're like, you know, what we're gonna see the best of the best of midway. But then then I guess that kind of helps you out to because you can kind of work and see what you need to change and see where you fall for points. But then going to like NHRA like since you're just an indie they're Super Bowl of of drag racing is during Labor Day weekend. So that's still in the like towards the end of their end of the season. They end November. But so you have September. That's kind of where they start re stacking everything, and then they wipe away the point from they start the point kind of cool to see that. Aspect as well. Yeah. Definitely definitely. So what's you got a couple of weeks off? And then what's what's next for you on the on the agenda? I go at the end of the month two air race. So we're going to Portland for the Oregon trolley or Oregon trail and trail rally we've been kind of cool an excited about a three day race. We start in Oregon go to Washington finish off in Oregon's kinda cool and going to Crandon for you know, the spring run and then back to area at the end of the month. So that's kind of what June entails for me. I don't know. I'm pretty busy too. I know I gotta go to Charlotte for Arca race and coke six hundred. And then. Yeah. And then I guess Crandon. I've got Lucas in Missouri. Don't know pretty repack few weeks to think there's one other benefit got about thrown in there too. Plus a wedding. I gotta go to so jeeze. We're. I don't know should be fun stretch worst Eastone. I know I'm excited. And I was just about to say you get dressed up. You're gonna like do Jones weird. I've actually got a few suits now. Like I last year. There was a there was like three weeks in a row, whereas in a suit for like a vents in like hosting like formal gigs for for motor sports and stuff like that. And so like, yeah. Now, I've actually got this whole suit collection. But I'm one of those weird guys like I wear them. So rarely I actually look forward to putting on a suit once in a while, you know, it's like play dress up if that makes any sense not that guys like to play dress up, but sometimes fun to get out of the genes and the hood he and like actually dress nice. You know? Oh my goodness. Yes. I do gin. I think I have an idea for fall credited. Why don't we like why don't I go to a banquet or something like that? Or maybe we could just dress up really nice and do my life show on. Just just so we can get dressed up or maybe cringe should hold like a fall, prom or some homecoming. Oh, that would be the homecoming dance. Oh, my that would be a redneck homecoming your something like you. And I like the better thing would be like you get in your like full-on ballgown. I get an tuxedo. And then we go literally to the middle Jurassic Park like the make it slip inside and do a live show from there, and like we're formal and then everybody else's like Nick, go down slipping slide to be a Larry's. Commentate from there and do our own life streak show. All right. Welcome to the live. X x x rated version of the down and dirty show about get down and dirty. Look at. Yeah. I I would love to. I wonder how that works like social media livestream and stuff like that. Like. The problem with make it slip inside is let's face it like the people, and I don't wanna be judgmental here. But generally, the guys and girls that are going down. The naked inside aren't the ones that you would actually really wanna see naked like. Way to put it. Be told. It's probably a lot more. They can do than than just like do. Volunteer like. Yeah. Pull it out. And Joe go down. There's like one girl that ten guys. Exactly, that's how you know. I've never been to have a su-. But I'm assuming have assume is kind of like that. It's just like all these like dudes like there's just one check or whatever. And we have something like that out here. It's called musket MU. And what they do is on the first Friday after the after summer so summer starts June twenty first the following Friday started out like two three to work at for took their like, huge big boats from out on Saint Clair shores or Saint Clair lake and all like started out at this island called musk and then just getting bigger and bigger and bigger. And that's literally what it is ask stripper poles, but it's not necessarily the girls that you would think would be strippers. No, please don't you are weird. Like that dude. Yeah. You wanna see my junk, I'll show you my junk girls a little bit more like even the wild ones. Bit more conserve like, hey, you got to earn a little bit least by me if you drink. You know, guys are just like immediately. Like, here's a joke. You know? It's just like, you know, like even the guys that shouldn't be proud of what they're packing. They're proud of it. Like, hey, check me out. You know? Like, okay. But you see those beams you see those memes, and the there's a mean going around of of guys in women when they look in the mirror and here like the mean is a guy that's like three hundred pounds looks in the mirror, and he sees like a guy that's one hundred eighty pounds of the six pack women look in the mirror, and here, they are like skinny as can be and they see this huge like woman in the mirror. You know what I mean? It's like, it's just funny. The way that you know, minds work because guys are so that way like you can see the guy that you know, they're just like they own it. Like, hey, check it out. You know, women are so. Some some of them are just all depends. We maybe we could do that. Maybe we can do the live alive down and dirty show from dress park, or at least filming at its and stuff and blur some things out so people who've never been there actually get what it is. And it is a fiftieth anniversary this year. So I'm assuming things are gonna get a little wild always thought that would be the fun thing too. And this is going way off the rails here, but like Nash like TV and stuff like rebel signature series or Matthew. You're whoever's doing TV like there's certain things like you want to showcase the the race. But they don't necessarily showcase the event, you might get a little over arching view of it. But if you like somebody, you know, like needs to go in and literally like, there's there's more to Crandon, you know, just like the Indy five hundred. They've got the snake pit and things like that. Like, there's more to these events. Like, I wanna go and see that I wanna see like the people signing. Everybody knows about the race. And and stuff like that. But like with Crandon man on a really like meet the people in what they're doing back in the woods and like like. I think that would be like epic YouTube stuff, even if you're blurring out or whatever, you know, like tell the real crane in store, you know, the stuff you get on TV. That's what we can do gin gin beaver and Tiffany stone. Getting that real real story for you, really like undercover reporting crane. So here we are. Nobody knows that's we're going gonna have this Bill like your phone, and hopefully, nobody noticed it we I guarantee you have all kinds of film crews volunteered to go with us too. So like. No, nobody after park. Oh my God. Djembe just got way off subject. But I know everybody's thinking about this. And they're like, yes. This is a good idea Kinsey to produce for us because you know, she knows like half the people in Jurassic Park, so Kinsey, Flannery, if you're listening, you're a producer. And our and our video refer and Tatan. You're just don't have cliff of anything that we've done or if I take the vehicle back out on the altar forechecking to give mean if we're doing that, I know Fokker, and then we should give should I give away band ride on the altar fortran gosh, you could do that. Like man, if you're going to Krant in like like post up you craziest picture pick one and take you for ride my Jeep or something you'd have people go like crazy over that. I know that is we should figure out something. We'll figure out something either way hopefully, your dad's and come back, and I can say that I drove them there of Parker around in my Jeep. No, he's already done deal. He's coming back. So he is there. So yeah. Alright. Teesta always fun fun catching up with you. And you know, and I guess we'll we'll be back next week.

Ep. 179: Ryan Hunter-Reay and Colton Herta

"Hey there. It's Tom Haberstroh the national NBA insider for NBC sports. And I want to tell you about my podcast. It's called the Habur show. I'll be interviewing some of the game's biggest and brightest names inside and outside the sport. So if you wanna learn something about the NBA wanna know what happens behind the scenes, this is the pod for you. Like, why did JJ Redick delete social media? And what does stand Van Gundy think of all these threes and did rockets GM Daryl Morey really see this Houston turnaround coming down low now, but beware. These conversations will change the way you think about the NBA. Welcome to the aspirin ABC podcast on your host. Nate Ryan today. We have an all phone or edition of the podcast. I talked to two IndyCar drivers last week ahead of this weekend's visit by the IndyCar series to barber motorsports park. The first conversation. You'll hear is with Ryan hunter Ray of Andretti. Autosport who tells us what has caught his eye through two races of the two thousand nineteen season. He reviews his team's performance and Ryan looks ahead to barber and the Indianapolis five hundred and then we'll hear from Colton Khurda of Harding Steinbrenner racing. I spoke with Colton three days after he became the youngest winner in IndyCar history with his March twenty four th victory at circuit of the Americas in Austin, and it was also three days before Colton hurt. His nineteenth birthday so Colt and told us some stories about his victory. Tacos tradition. How surreal it is for. Him to be a winning IndyCar driver after growing up around the paddock as the son of former IndyCar driver, Bryan Herta, and how Colton likes his chances for becoming the youngest Indianapolis five hundred winner in history with all that said, we'll get right to it. With one more note, you might have noticed. I do my best to always tape. The NASCAR NBC podcast in person because those are just generally better conversations and cell phone connections can be slightly on reliable. So the sound quality on these two phones is mostly good. However, the second one isn't quite as ideal as I would have liked, but I did my best sometimes circumstances dictate using long distance technology as we did in this instance. So with all that now being said, a big thank you to Pat Capela Raleigh at IndyCar for making these conversations happen. And without further ado, here's my conversation with Ryan hunter Reay K Nate Ryan. How are you? Good. How you doing right? Yeah. Get your two races in assessing the. Indycar season. So far new track. New winner this past week at Austin. I know Saint Petersburg also had some interesting storylines. What has caught your eye so far twenty nineteen in IndyCar? I think the rookies for sure it's just very strong rookie class. No doubt about it. You know, we saw how well Felix Rosenquist at Saint Pete, obviously continue to show his pace it at Toda, but Colton was also very tasseled Saint Pete and really brought it to the front at circuiting America. So I mean, we had some some last year, you know, wiccan started off with the poll should have probably one that I asked you showed how talented he was all the way through the year. And then now this year, we've got another crop refused coming in so making everybody's life difficult. No doubt about it. But it's just the sports things in the right direction for many reasons. Yeah. When people talk about, oh, it's never been more competitive. And we kinda here that year after year after year in this case, it really is true. When you have a Rosenquist who showed at Saint Pete that he can win and obviously have heard a win at Austin. And I know you've got other guys out there like Eriksson and some others. I mean. That truly is the essence of it this year. Right. You just have that much talent more. So this year in the series. No doubt about it. I mean, it's theory is already ridiculously competitive prior to the beginning of the twenty nine hundred season. But now, we've we've mixed in even more talent Patricia ward, certainly every time he sat in IndyCar. He's been super fast and other kids super talented say he's going to be he's going to be a threat. No doubt. It's making tough work for everybody. But that's the way we want. You know, you want to go out there and beat the best, and there's really not a weak spot with that in mind assessing your season so far. I know you had the disappointment of the engine failure at Saint Pete. But you rebounded pretty well. With a third at Austin Gillette aside from the opener being mechanically can't really control or do you feel like you're on track? Yeah. Obviously, it's tough. All it opened up the season record a big segr-. You feel like you're finding out of that hole for quite a while which we will be, but it was decent points. You know, I wasn't overly thrilled with our performance over the weekend. We fight third finish there. But you know, I think they had a fifth place far. And it just wasn't really those nothing. You know, very overwhelming. It was just kind of solid, and that's what we came away with. And I guess sometimes, you know, if you're down days are solid days, and you get a third place thanking the point is a good thing. Where do you feel like Andretti autosport can make the gains at this point always has to be good weekend and week out, and you know, in this series, you cannot happy spot. You can't be you can't be weak on short ovals. You can't you know at myspace on on road courses. It's it's everything superspeedway short course streak, or so, you know, we need to be very strong week in a week out. Hopefully, we can get that momentum on a barber road courses have historically been pretty good for us last year. I think our average finishing position on road courses with third or fourth. So definite. We had a good run races there last year. Hopefully, we can roll that into twenty nineteen. But we'll see this thing. I, you know, I I really can't count on fact that we were good there last year because that's how tough series as you come back. And and you're struggling to get into the top ten in you. You're wondering what will where to go? Where do we go miss? Well, it's just that competitive. There's that many good teams and drivers you have two wins at barber. But eventual wisdom last year was that Penske was really strong on ovals, but maybe just a little bit behind on the street and road courses and this year, obviously new garden wins at Saint Peden willpower was fairly dominant until he had the problem at Austin their signs that the competition is stiffer. And that you know, we're Penske was maybe trailing the Hondas of Indrawati and gase last year. It seem like it's more even I know it's only two races. But no, I think you're right definitely filled in that void a little bit. Like it. Same p for instance. I mean Joseph was fine. So there was no way around that. And that that wasn't necessarily their strong see twenty eighteen so I expect there'll be there'll be strong as they as they usually are every every weekend on every different type of shock when you talk about. Ryan that you're in that whole from Saint Pete. And you don't know how long that's going to take to dig out of it. You try to set a marker for you. And the team of hey, this is maybe where we need to be coming out of Indianapolis or heading into the summer stretch. Is there any way to kind of quantify where you wanna start looking at for you look down the road to try to win a championship. But willan those have mechanical in the first two races here. So it'd be nice if you know Dixon, Brosse new garden, if those guys would, you know, sit out a ratio. Level pudding. But I think going in. I think, you know, the top five points and topped maybe top three point. You know, if we go out and have a good weekend. Every, you know, at at Farber Long Beach, indeed did GP if we could do that. I think we'll we'll be top foreign points top five points. So that's what we need to do looking at the performance of Colton her two at Austin. I think I saw that you were among the first to release say this kid is for real coming out of the gates at KOTA at preseason testing. I guess he led three of the four sessions. What about maybe on just the speed? And I know that you probably had an awareness of him that did others didn't given your connection with Andretti and everything like that. But what about him impressed you right away? And said, hey, this is maybe a guy could win as an eighteen year old nece first year are just as pace, you know, his approach. He's pretty quiet just gets down and gets on with it. You know? I mean, he puts his head down and gets on with that. He's just he's no BS straightforward. I can see that. He's there to get the job done. I'm not surprised that he's been up front. Like this. And it seems to be these upfront everywhere we go testing. So should be useful. You look at him as being a championship factor, or do you look at the fact that that team is relatively new, and that might be limiting factor would say, you know, you know, he's fast, but the team's gonna be living factor potentially. Because they're you know, it's a new group together. And you know, they're not going to be able to do all these three stops keep keep up with the front, but they're doing a great job or seeding everyone's expectations. And I would not be surprised codes in the next towards last quarter of the season. When it comes to the championship hunt. As you look forward to run, you know, as you mentioned, you can't really go off history for barber. But you do have to wins there. I know Long Beach being a street course, and he'd being strong everywhere that that is the place you're probably looking forward to as well, how do you look at the outlook for the next couple of weeks? Yeah, they're they're opportunities. We need to take full advantage of. I mean, we've we've been strong at both those tracks. Like you mentioned last year. I think we've finished barber Long Beach was a huge missed opportunity for us that a fast race car thing. Just kinda deteriorated from. Qualifying on into the rates. So like, I said, there's no reason we shouldn't be on the pay there. We we should be quick. So if that is the case, we we need to capitalize. That's the key. It's just you have to capitalize. When you have a good balance grid to grace par you need to make those those weekends really count. I'm curious just to get your opinion on this as someone who primarily covers NASCAR. And I was at Saint Pete in planning to be a Long Beach. I was at Indy last year. I'm kind of getting a sense for like how the stewards approach officiating in IndyCar versus some other series. I've covered and it's interesting to me like how they review the on-track actions. And they seem to be into deterring people from making moves before calamity strikes. How do you view how the stewards of officiate races IndyCar you like that? They're proactive or could they be more proactive? How do you view how they evaluated done a good job? I mean, the best outcome is when raised control does not have to intervene. Right. You want drivers to be able to race. I remember. There was a certain time in IndyCar when there was too much. Intervention going on from race control. They were getting into the race as well. Too much and drivers within almost terribly to do certain things or to put their car in a certain spot. I think it's it's going in the right direction. That words there's less than invention and there's less of a presence from race control. But they do have to set their limits, and they have to you know, you have to know that they're gonna they're gonna enforce them. It's an empty threat from control that, hey, we're going to penalize you do such and such and they don't do it. You get away with it. Well, then the system's broken. So I think I didn't do a good job on it for the most part with NBC having Indianapolis. I mean, we're very enthused having that broadcast and close by just getting your thoughts on indie. I guess it's probably difficult because when you guys don't visit Noval ahead of going there until may is there any real wait for you to get a barometer on how you feel like you're gonna run until you actually get on track there. No, no. I runs the first few hundred Indianapolis when you finally get the car on track and you do your baseline run. That is the most stressful time the whole year for us because we know on that I run it goes, really. Well, it comes easy. This speed comes easy. It's going to be a good one because we have a fast race car. And then I've been there and other times where oh, no, you know, for the same amount of draft or a mile an hour and a half off or two miles an hour off. It's going to be a long month. And it's going to be stressful on so there's there's so many components that go for these cars together. And and when you get him up so two hundred thirty miles an hour, the the drag, you know, characteristics of mechanical drag aerodynamic, there's so much gear and tamper a race car like that. So every year, we do everything we can team out reparation wise, but they are all different race partners. Dow down parts of going to them. So you never know what you're going to get until that I run which is the most stressful year. That's crazy. So it doesn't matter how much simulation you can do or how precise it can be until you're in the real world. Oh, that's that's the worst. Yeah. I don't sleep the night before. Sounds great. Speaking of that. I was looking at your Indy. Five hundred record since the win. I know the finishes haven't been there since the twenty fourteen victory. But it seems like you've led some laps as it just sort of been circumstantial that you haven't gotten the finishes that you've wanted since two thousand fourteen. Yeah, I mean sixteen we definitely should have when we maybe ask anybody in the paddock we at the fast racecar out there, the most laughs, and then you know, got into an incident where he may just out on pit lane. But it's unfortunate sixteen really really hurt seventeen. We were also fast last year eighteen we weren't that great. You know, just couldn't get the balance right and in the race kind of fifth place car, and I think that's where we finished fourth or something like that. So, but yeah, fourteen was a good one, obviously thirteen I felt like I could've one that too. I was leading the field coming to the restart on in thirteen and contests is always going to have another shot at it because of the huge draft. And boom, the Asian does yellow and checker. Comes out and never had a shot. So yeah. Then enforced too many times. Jeff another one well much to you this year. I hope you get to sleep after that first time you're on track in may. I meant I appreciate your time. Thanks for calling. All right. Our thanks again to Ryan hunter Ray as noted a tough start to the season for our HR with a rare engine failure at Saint Petersburg where he was twenty third, but he started and finished third at coda in Austin. And now he heads to barber motorsports park where he is a two time winner in nine starts hunter, Ray, always strong on street and road courses and really at any kind of track. He is one of the steadiest veterans in the N T T IndyCar series on the other end of the spectrum. Let's talk to the hottest rookie on the circuit. Here's my conversation with Colton Herta. We're talking three days ahead of your nineteenth birthday. I believe what how much better will the birthday celebration. Be when it comes less than a week after your first IndyCar victory as far as president. I could ask. Any big plans in the wake of that? Or is it just going to be the normal low key type birthday? No one's actually even be home on my birthday. I I would probably a baseball tournament. So they're not even be home. When I come home. I'm in Atlanta right now, finding New York tomorrow and thrown home knowns fifty home for my face. So to see him maybe a day after nothing. Presume they'll have a little bit more new to celebrate you with this year with the big win. I was looking through your post race comments Colton. And it seemed like it hasn't really sunk in understandably, you know, within an hour after the winds Sunday at Austin here. We are talking about a few days later as it has started thinking now. You know, it's it's tunnel holidays. Who edge it in and understand that happened? But it was extremely pool. I can walk the walk the day to end with the special. I've been told that I should ask you about how the victory. Tacos started. Can you tell me oh? I don't know harder feeling this out. But yeah. So basically, if you kill me EP think, this is basically a a tradition further on I eight or nine there was it was after I would win the goat race being from southern California. Los Angeles area is just go get their Taco's. And obviously, it's pretty easy to get talkers in Los Angeles. Yeah. Those kind of thing that he might that gay where did you go for the tacos Sunday? I went to this close. Call halston taco project. I was actually still in Austin that night. So I went there country. Does it measure up to California southern California tacos while I'm preference part? Talk. Oh from my local town taco truck at that. Probably. Right on golden. I've heard many drivers say after their first win that they you know, they can't imagine ever getting there that lifelong dream. They can't wrap their heads around like actually winning on a national stage. You literally grew up around this in your your dad still was racing fulltime in IndyCar. I think when you were six years old, and I presume you might have some firsthand memories of what one of his wins might have been like, what's it like, you know, having IndyCar be so much a part of your life already. But now to be at the center of it in a completely new way yet crazy honestly, two of my dad owns or before I was born. And then I remember before he wanted Chicago. And I remember that will actually there for the day. I can't believe I remember it. But I remember the day low despite our this Michigan of Michigan. But yeah, I I it's completely different now because then I felt. Important just to be in victory lane being deal. Four year old with all these cameras on me. But completely different as five. I definitely earned it, and you know, to be part of a huge group effort like it once was pretty special. How often did you go to the track when you were a child and your dad was still raising me there every week quite a lot. Yeah. Symbol repent. I definitely went back today like eighty percent of them so transitioning into being a full time IndyCar driver in and now a first time winner, I mean, is it more normal for you? Because you've been around the paddock since you were born, basically, I guess a little bit different role narrow from what I used to just throw in tournament all the mechanics stuff at ready when my dad was trying to, but know, it is it kind of be food is, you know, a lot of the kind that I've worked with my Gat here actually forced me on this year, but the fears I fool to to be working with the same guys. Stuff I refer, and obviously you had your dad there in Austin for the win. How was your dad involved with your racing Colton Izzy hands on or is he more behind the scenes aren't now doesn't really help move with racial side of things are all it's more career management contracts, sponsorship and stuff like that. They help sport. Stuff. But I still had a lot of wizard a point which he was more involved in the racing side. And if so when did he? Musician. Definitely when I was younger probably up to fill around over thirteen and I moved to England, obviously, I'm I moved over there on my own. But before she moved very from our fucking t my okay, kinda let you go. I primarily cover NASCAR. So I sort of see the way chase Elliott his dad, Bill interact in you Bill is very much behind the scenes and sort of off the radar but hotel, it does talk about sometimes he gets tips from Bill because he's raised at those same tracks, and I would presume dad Bryan Herta has a similar relationship. So do you guys ever talk racing? I mean, does he ever offer any tips or do you ever ask him about maybe an upcoming race or track you're going to or? Yeah. I didn't think I ask them right now from federal part probably ask from now for about. What suffers getting kick and anything else, that's probably the biggest topic of what we talk about pricing. And then just general should shout about different things racing. Stuff like that you've been pretty much since the test at Austin in the preseason Colton. You've been spoken of really highly. I was I covered Saint Pete. And I was in an interview with Roger Penske in which he named check to you a few times is being extremely fast in. I've heard Ryan hunter Ray and others coming out of that preseason tests singing your praises. I was wondering do you block that out or have you heard any of it? And if you do hear it like, how do you handle it? What's your reaction to hearing people talk about you that way? It's pretty cool. I think it's brought out it just give out. Like, I said I thought what I looked up to or even guy Rochester, same cool. That's cool. They hurt it as well. I saw you comments from one of your teams co-owners Mike carting after Austin. He said that you know, this wasn't something that you guys expected in race. Number two. I'm and I covered the Toronto race last year when I was talking to Brian Barnhart. And I remember he was talking about kind of on a slog, it'd been just. Adding up to speed much, less run competitively. So I guess the question now calling would be like how far do you feel like the team can go after this win given that it's still relatively new and I would presume it's sort of a deficit to the the bigger teams promote. Promote beat by competitive Pino every everywhere refund so far though, it's only two places Saint Pete. We threw up into third and fall finding and into the fastest. The first they kind of knock, you know. But any into the five fifty. We got an eight place finish for after being Trump of all with the team at the on these ly- the wing at a a vote that pretty special. But you know, I think you know, we begin to have really paid for favors of just so different tall. The other tracks thing that you have a definitive, so it's not filthy this this weekend will be tough trucks. Like this fray Hieaux those those are going to be placed for I think I'll just driving wife. I'm gonna struggle. Just because I haven't had a lot of tracks finding it difficult place. Or are you more comfortable on street and road courses than ovals at this point in your career perfect? Yeah. I done a lot more. But those are both think this going to Europe it was really good for for my road pro-trade king leading drive the car in up since but I lost out on a lot of a lot of other guys talk. Obviously than filling in with running oval, but forty years and stuff. So yeah. Obviously that's going to be a declining curve. I definitely feel more comfortable than I feel like I know what doing off more than ruin she courses is the wind change things. L Colton from their perspective. I know momentum is sort of vague thing. But I know that you know, in ovals, I I would think the car's probably a bigger factor in there. You're you're running against teams that have more money and more cars like SE, your Android your Penske. But does winning lift the team up in any sort of way and make you recalibrate your expectations and not that you're gonna run for the championship? But you that you could be more contender. Yeah. It definitely gives the teams to monitor out because you know, it was a tough off in just car ready for coda into testing regarded the Saint Pete. And from you know, who says that he's confidence and further. Really means the expectations. I think we if we can finish top ten everywhere coat. That'd be pretty pretty damn solid for refer camping saw the George Steinbrenner the fourth one of your other co owners of the car there was asked at coda after your win. You know, what would be next, and he said, obviously becoming I guess the youngest winner at the Indianapolis five hundred having you know, not much over experience and having not run any before you get there. There's no way really to know until you get there in may how things are going to fold. But how do you feel looking toward the biggest race of the year for IndyCar? All I didn't say is that we get a lot of time that's going to help a bunch. Honestly can't they are targeted. They will be could be real quick. Who else kind of acid that? I really no clue. I've driven the Indy lights for them. I think it's super easy flat. Comet it's concrete's there. So every different than the IndyCar. So there's obviously a lot of new loan. I'll even put with on few on driver coaching. And he's obviously business much carring that he's going to be a Hugh pulpit pool that I'm very at dawn to shooting a little while knows a little bit. I think about winning in India supposed right? Oh, yes. Well, hey, I appreciate you. Give me a call. And when I'm sure is a busy Wednesday for you. And thanks again.

"As far as I west. You have to believe everyone's watching team after two and a row Joey Logano win in Las Vegas now. The tackle Phoenix Phoenix kicked on this weekend. And Saint Petersburg any endless. Townsend bell is here in studio to help us. Get ready to we need help. Sorry, AJ that was not for you. It's busy month returns next week with the twelve hours of seeing and we have two days. German Rolex twenty four at Daytona to break. It all down and someone say Daytona monster energy super-cross is the world center racing fourteen million pounds of dirt and a whole lot of action. Hello. You're in the motorsports. Our we talk all things racing. No Parker this week. That's why I took the little javale j I just wanted to know. I was missing it. Ear more than capable of handling the heavy lifting and our bullpen is also stacked because joining us today IndyCar endless Townsend bell Townsend with the IndyCar season reading up this weekend. That means if my math is right only eighty days hold on until the Indianapolis five hundred. Oh, bring out the mouth. Is there? Anything else in the world like the Indy? Five hundred nothing like biggie. Biggest race big sporting event in the world over three hundred thousand fans there on race day and really the fastest race in the world. It's a cathedral of speed the biggest prize to to win. I've been there ten times. But I can't tell you how excited I am to go with our NBC team and commentate the race for for the first time. And what does it mean to win Indy? We'll look back to last year. And we'll show you crazy Kim psycho when you win the five hundred he knows what it means. And he was absolutely thrilled in that is going to be tough to be he'll be coming after his second one this year. I love that reaction. Maybe it's just it's hard to really put into words on race day. You know my first year. My my only season 2013 running the five hundred you know, I thought it was prepared you spend two to three weeks air, you feel like you're ready and then race day you wake up and just those raw emotions the nerves the excitement everything. Just kind of rolls into one. And then when they announce your name to walk out there and be ready for the five hundred. I remember shaking in the car getting ready to go. And then dropped the green flag for the biggest race in the world. And it's I mean, we saw willpower reaction. I remember taking the lead there and I've won some races. I've never been that excited as taking the lead at the five hundred. The way you guys talk about him so excited, and it's going to be obviously here on NBC and the NBC platform. So we're excited to bring it to you just eighty days away, but we do have to rewind a little bit. We don't wanna get ahead of ourselves because the season starts this weekend. You're on your way down there to to call the racist. What are the story lines that you guys have already written down that you're looking at even before the season begins? I think for me the big teams in the sport will be the big teams again this year, the favorites that's Penske. That's canasta. That's the team. But I look for who jumps from that second tier up and surprises us last year, special board day coin Vassar Sullivan. They came out they won the season opener in Saint Pete. And so I really looked to who's going to surprise us because I think there's some potential to really get surprised this year. And then of course, you've got to see where Honda and Chevy kind of net out in the first race that will really set the tone for what the balance of the season looks like. Really in for me. You got the heavy hitters. You got the top three teams as you said in the names that go with that can't rookie or a guy that maybe hasn't had a struggling. You're a gram Ray hall, James Hinchcliffe. They struggled last year to a certain extent or rookie like Felix Rosenquist, Marcus Ericsson. That's joining James Hinchcliffe, a teammate step up or a young American like Colton hurt us so can one of those guys kind of get their foot in the door, and kind of wedge themselves as a driver and a team that can go out there run with the big three and talk about them not just for a couple of races. But every weekend as a team or driver, then go in and really fight for this championship. It's interesting because you have already mentioned some names, we haven't even hit on some of you mentioned that the big three in NASCAR. We always had the the big three last year in terms of the organizations, but Kevin Scott Dixon. You talked about willpower with the Indianapolis five hundred this big names who are coming back for the Indianapolis five hundred this year, you've got guys like Alexander. Rossi now fully settled into the IndyCar series is one in Indy. Five hundred finished second in the championship. Last year. He's going to be strong all your Hinchcliffe needs a good strong season Alonzo's coming back, and so many stories, but how do you Scott Dixon? That's what everybody in in the series asks themselves, and that's one thing that Scott Dixon, hasn't done in this career is win back to back championships. So he can't get the number six Castro Neves going after his fourth winded. Indianapolis that's going to be fun to watch because he's lost his enthusiasm for driving talking or race in the dancing chess. Waking up in the morning, he's. Yeah. You glad you guys mentioned Scott Dixon, because no question looking to continue his championship winning ways. The champion for two thousand three is Scott Dixon. Winston Scott Dixon as your champion. Time. Did did play up. Chairmanship the suspense stick. Twenty-fifty championship hanging. And I can't believe it sticks. Scope Dick's is on the verge of something truly special significant something that hasn't done it. Time. Hey, what is it that makes him? So good. Experience technique a relentless pursuit improving and to me, I think the biggest thing if I'm racing in the IndyCar series right now the thing that concerns me nothing has changed in his world. And it's been solid for the last two years. Same team owner with Chip Ganassi, that's provided them all the resources. He needs same race engineer. Same wife. I mean, you know, this to just have things stay the same when you're successful. And so he's he's a locomotive of of success right now. And I don't see any reason why he's going to slow down or potentially not go for six championship. What really stands out to me? That's always stood out about Scott Dixon, is really just attitude. Right like, whether it's going fantastic or they're struggling you. Just never really see. His facial. See they don't change his attitude. He's yeah. Every driver gets a little frustrated here there, but we call them the iceman for reason just because the fact that nothing really fazes him, and as a competitor that gets under your skin because even when he you got him down. You never see it on his face. And eventually he just finds a way to work himself back into races and championships. And I think it's going to be the same this year when you have consistency with success. It opens I think yourself up mentally the bandwidth to to observe at a higher level and the decision making that Scott Dixon has all season long about when the hold a windfall. Full them kind of thing in the critical moments. He knows how to extract the most amount of points for race weekend and over over the balance of season. It's just always comes on in the second half. He's always there in the hunt and win the when the chips are really on the line like sonoma's last year. He's nobody can touch them. So let me ask you something about that. You say okay opens up the bandwidth is almost. So it gives them a freedom. Like, he kind of is is free to sort of experiment, or explorer just sort of know that he doesn't have the pressure maybe fashion day so bash award as going down to St. Pete hoping and trying to do exactly what he did last year. So goes in with confidence momentum. But does he also going with a lot of pressure on the shoulders? Yeah. I think so I think if you're if you're a hired gun in IndyCar, one of the top guys your team, owner expects you to figure it out with your engineer and your crew how do you go beat Scott Dixon for Sebastian board day last year? They figured it out. He's got a small team not nearly the resources of the gase people. But he has great people on his team Sebastian board does and you can see the decision. He made right there to keep it clean down and turn one and take the win. So there's the chance to have surprises come up in our IndyCar season. But over the course of the year, you've got to figure out how to beat scope, Scott Dixon. Over the long haul. That's the hard part not just one weekend. And listen as a race car driver. No matter what you're always putting pressure on yourself. And that's the thing, you know, whether there's pressure from the outside world or morning, then you're just doing on yourself. It's how you react to that pressure. There are people that are a lot better than other people at reacting when it's on the line. Whether it's going for a pole lap, a race win or more importantly for the championship and to me right now, and we've seen it. We just saw the stats over the last decade. There's nobody better at it than Scott Dixon. So, but that's what makes this IndyCar series so much fun because we can have surprises every weekend. Whether it's from a big team or a smaller team the field is close enough. If you get it right on any given weekend. You can go out there and win the race so excited to see what happens, and they said it all kicks off this weekend. And you guys mentioned some of those great members in the rookie class this season. Earlier today that class got even stronger me, Pat. All right, Pat, o' award, I say it, right? Oh. Hot not even close if any lights champion will compete in thirteen races this season for the Carlin team has first rate. So not this weekend is going to be March twenty fourth at Austin. He will also look to make his first Indianapolis five hundred this may so we mentioned a few the names who will likely be writing headlines IndyCar this year, but nobody has ten-day more inspirational story than you do not have to be racing fan to appreciate or be moved by journeys. We'll update you on his paths to recovery. Sunday, the two thousand nineteen IndyCar season begins in Saint Peter's, we mentioned that if you like we talked about that. It's important cover starts at twelve thirty eastern leading to the race at one thirty on NBC fan. And of course, this may the greatest spectacle in racing the Indianapolis five hundred it's on NBC, NBC sports, new exclusive home of IndyCar and speaking of the Indy five hundred checkout this film, it will debut right around our Indy. Coverage. I love Mario Andretti. Because he's the only time. My dad would watch racing. See my dad only watch sports had talion he stopped watching the Yankees Joe left. He stopped boxing when when Marciano grass, you know, they stop I'm through I'm through this by dad. I don't care about Mario Andretti. I'm trying to tell. Now, when you do the tonight show, you don't really meet that man guy who plays that place when you beat marrying reading meet the guy won the Indy. Five hundred to one Formula one. It was impressive. We're going to get you. So ready for the Indianapolis five hundred you'll be painting checkered flags on your neighbor's lawn. But if you still need another reason to get behind the stories that we're telling look no further than Robert Wickens last August, Robert was severely injured in a crash at Pocono raceway since then he has shared the ups and downs of his recovery with the world on social media yesterday Wiggins announce that he will attend funding Grosvenor getting acted in IndyCar. How often do you think about would it be like to to climb back aboard one of those every day every single day? I think about what it's going to be like. That's all I know. How to do? It's what I've told my parents most ten years old that I wanted to be racecar driver and the time. My parents kind of spike Huber me a little bit. And then, you know, it's like me telling my parents, I want to be an astronaut, and I want to be the first person on Mars. It's like, okay, it's this unachievable thing. But then you know, work tart did the law sacrifice. And and there it was and too young to just give that up, and I don't I don't care what I have to do. I don't care how hard the work. From come back. You will see that entire interview with Kelly status as part of the pre race coverage on Sunday Townsend, you know, Robert first off what will seeing him at the season opening race mean to the entire Indy-Car community. I think it will just be the personification of incredible desire that Robert has to compete to drive race cars, and I think probably to be around his family. I mean, these are the these are the folks that he spent most of the beginning of last year with demonstrating exceptional talent. And I said it many times on the air. I'm not aware of of IndyCar driver ever come in. And learn oval racing as fast as he did. And he showed up at the first race in Saint Peter's AJ said earlier just as as a contender right away up front top five podiums, and it was just a peruta l- timing for him to have that right on his rookie run on his way. But when you see the smile on his face. You know in an interview thinking about coming back to the racetrack seat him get on the airplane to fly to Saint Pete. I'm just I'm humbled. I'm inspired. And I'm excited for him. Inspiration to me is what you said there that I don't I've never met. Robert, I got to watch him. Learn really who he was last year in he burst onto the scene. And from Saint Petersburg on was a guy contending for the championship and lifting his race team. Schmidt Peterson to a new level. And when I saw that reckon Pocono might my heart just sank in. Just at the time. You think of the worst in any hope for the best and to see what he's done in through all the social media, not hiding from it not saying what you know? I'm not gonna let people see the struggles. I'm going to be open about the struggles that I'm gonna have to go through because I'm gonna inspire other people. I'm gonna show that never give up attitude, and we just heard it right there. What's the one thing on his mind? I can't wait to get back into the race car. So to be at Saint Petersburg everybody that that hasn't been able to see him or people that haven't seen them a lot seem being at the racetrack. It's just going to lift the whole paddock there. It's going to make Saint Petersburg as a season opener. Even better if it can get that. But it's it's something that we should all look at and really just focus on what it means to be inspired, no different than you've talked about Alex hardy somebody like that it just people like that bring it to a new level. So I'm pump that he's going and how cool is it for his race team to say, hey. We have a car waiting for you. So there's there's a whole there to fill and he's he's fighting everyday to fill it, and this is going to be incredible weaken them there from here to Saint Pete Robert Wickens has a head start on your you mentioned him getting on the plane. He actually posted the video here. He is. I mean walking up the steps to board the airplane to head the Saint Pete the first time back in the back on the paddock since that injury. Had started a much nicer airplane out to his well ahead already so cool. Because again, as as drivers you guys I mean, you know, you're racing and those grandstands not everyone in those students is rooting for you say, everyone has their favorite driver. I think everyone watching right now again, whether you're fan of IndyCar, not is rooting for Robert Wickens in life. I mean, flat out. That's yeah. That just it's you can inspirations not even I mean, there's so many more. It's just it's awesome to see. How much he's putting in in showing all us how if you never give up you can get back to what you wanna do. And I think one of the things that's great about going to the racetrack. And being there seen everybody is that once he puts a headset on and he's on the timing. Stan, then it'll really really energize. He's already pumped took to be back in the in the cockpit. But once you start to really digging with your team, and you're hearing feedback from the drivers, and you're watching the engineers processed data and feedback and making setup changes that'll really just kinda give an additional boost to his whole recovery. And if you wanna hear more of his story again Kelly staff sat down with him you'll hear that on our previous coverage on Sunday beginning at twelve thirty eastern here on NBC. All right. We come back. We will talk other things than Indy-Car. I know any wicked Phil really the whole show with any convoy. Okay with it. But hey, don't go far because we've got insect coming up as well. We're gonna talk supercross NASCAR age area. Full of NASCAR women little bit of NASCAR. Well, yeah. The plan. We'll see. We'll see. Time to talk NASCAR. Let's start a discussion guys really the same way. You start any day with cereal. Did you know it's national cereal day. What's your favorite? Do. You have a favorite cereal. Apple jacks. Generally. You had to say that even if it's not about you. I'm constantly experimenting serious, very popular in the Bill. Household right now. It's these cinnamon cinnamon checks, I'm partial to those right now. Yeah. You guys could say, you know. Yielded? This'll tell you a lot about my personality. Great nuts. Yeah. School age as like all right already Christmas. Nascar is had a long tradition of putting cereal. Brands on cars, retying it back to NASCAR somehow feel Earnhardt. Of course, the nineteen Ninety-seven all star race the Wheaties car. A lot of weeds boxes probably on people's short shelves with with the intimidator Terry Lemani nineteen nineties cornflakes that was a scheme that curl stood out to. Yeah. Of course, early two thousands. He had John Andretti with Cheerios hunting. Do the Honey nut version of that? Baby Dominy Cheerios crazy there's so many Clinton Royer in two thousand nine the Charlotte ball had idea. Not remember this the count chocula Franken berry and blueberry screen coined Boyer. Need to cereal with daytime more sugar in it to get even more because that had to be count chocula? That's good Chris Bush last year. Here you go at major here. Those slow my mind, I'd never go those vailable in a lot. I did try those when they were in the hauler and. That's quite good, actually. All right. So there you go last fall, we're gonna move past cereal. I guess and get you don't even know. I was I thought I had a transition. They're just known it just, where's where's that milk for me? And even talk Syria without melt last fall was the first time drivers race on the new look Phoenix track. NBC? Of course was there. You had old turn one became new turn free. Everybody was confused yet. A new fans on it was that's cool located in and around victory lane the fans loved it. The desert has never looked so good. But do you remember who won? My suppose, I mean. I was pretty sure. Bush one that got to do. Yeah. I see she. I guess let's go right into Kyle. But can Kyle Busch. Do it again. I mean, he's someone hasn't been the victory lane yet. We're only three races in. So I mean, we're not gonna on the Hewish route. I think he's finish. Does he leave? Okay, into this does leave Phoenix feeling better than he did going in happier. Sad at. Oh. I mean, if I have to take a guy leading up to it. I'm gonna take horrid. So Kyle is really upset if he doesn't win a race. So I'm gonna say he's probably sad leaving Phoenix harvick's might win this thing. And he'll be said towns jumping UBS became our NASCAR analysts, by the way. Listen Kyle was was so dominant Vegas in the truck series in the Finnity race. He was thought pretty strong in the racist. Well, they're gonna find a way to get that that Eminem Toyota to the front. I think I pick him take. It's not a coal you on Monday. I mean, it's not really going out on a limb. This is turning into like the debate section with this. All right. You said Harvick he's gonna win. That's why I feel I mean, it's harvick's place. I feel but it's going to be cowed. Bush is going to be fun for sure but Kabul, just mad if he doesn't win. So do you agree with HIV? Kevin Harvick will win the race this weekend. Well, I picked Bush just now, but I can easily see Harvard. I mean, it's out west it's close to home there in Bakersfield, and he knows that to get it done in the short tracks. But I'm gonna stick with Kyle. You take our? Let's let's bit for beers. Sounds good to me. Yeah. Plural. Beers. Like, you can't you gotta get ready for Seabourn next week though. So you can't do couple of days you. Okay. All right. All right. Okay. That's there's a clock. We had a clock. Okay. Really pay attention today as you can see Newman Ryan, and we bring him up because I think that was his last win AJ was that a couple of years ago. It was and they've had right Newman with with rouse Fenway new team for him. They've had a bit of a struggle haven't shown a lot of pace so far this new aero package. So Phoenix is the place that right Newman always runs well out. It doesn't matter what car in. He always seems to find a way to to make the car better than it's been running. So for the banana season, I'm going to say yet. He's a little happier than he's been leaving this race. I think it'd be happy. If I'd love to see Ryan Newman, Joey Logano square in the panic again and dress them down, and I like that in writing that comeback out. Good old short-track will get that done. Phoenix short-track, but assured enough it is. Short. Okay. So Ricky Stenhouse, and he's sort of been I yes in the headlines for a lot of reasons, but you look at the standings Stenhouse is in the fight yet. He he's had. I don't know if you call the quite season so far because he's ruffled some feathers, but he is seventh and points, and it yes, it's early. But that's a great start to the season. So he's if you're comparing to Ryan Newman, the seventeen teams outrun the six so far the beginning of the year and going into Phoenix. It's a place that he runs okay at. I'm going to say, he's happy. He stays on track. Whether that's inside the top five maybe right on the edge of the top ten. You do that. You're gonna make your way into the playoffs. So he's going to do the same. Whether that's I'm gonna say he's gonna run anywhere from eight to about fourteenth. What do you think towns on anything to add on strong strong of the big trucks? They always are. But I mean, if you look at the screen and NASCAR right now with some of the top teams. I don't think he's coming out of here that happy. I think I think we seem drop down the list a little bit AJ didn't give you a lot of time there. Roles. He's still mad about Daytona. I am mad. He made me. Wait. Going back to the Rolex. No at the debt Rolex. We had the end of the day. She well, he happened to be celebrating in the podium and didn't know yet an extra work. All right. So we may we have coming up a little boy my visit that Kurt Busch. Kurt Busch spent. I mean, pretty you guys are both nodding pretty good this season early on a he's quietly been inside the top five the last two races been kind of carried it for the Chevy teams cow Larssen's been fast. But at Atlanta had that speeding penalty, and then it beggars had that too many men over the wall penalty. So he led some laps over the last couple of races. I'm going to say he's still happy leaving. I guess I would agree with that. I think Kurt is settling into that new team over vanass. It's pretty cool to see a guy with all of his success and experience move into a new team in perform right away. That's the expectation. He's getting it done. I see that freight train continue. Okay. Couple of names that really could come out Phoenix. I think feeling pretty good. What about Eric Merola? I've already said too, many people are happy here. But. You air emoji. It's your favorite. I do you know, irritable. Merola just goes about his business and they have fast race cars at Stewart Haas. You know, I look at it depends on what everybody wants to win every race. So if it's inside the top three, then I say leaves unhappy. He's going to be kind of that that six to ten I think range, but okay, still going to be solid. I don't agree. I think you've already picked. Kevin harvick. So that teams quick. He's going to be quick. I think I'm rule is coming out of here with a big smile. Okay. Eric jones. We'll we'll finish with Eric Jones. You know, airi'q is. Phoenixes racetrack that he's really good at. He's been good in the trucks there. He was good inexpensively. I just feel I get some point Eric really needs to step up. I mean, he he's got two top tens during the year. But it's time to go up there and show dominance at a race. I just haven't seen it yet. So so not happy. I'm going to stick with that theme. I think you know, I like h I just haven't I haven't seen the opportunity and resolves fully realized yet. Maybe it'll come at some point. But I just don't know that Phoenix is going to be the weekend for that. It's hard bagging on another driver our share for everybody could be straight up. Here's what I enjoy is a town. Just really we're having some fun. You just became our NASCAR analyst along with AJ. And then you didn't you didn't realize you were going to do that. My blown up right now. You don't know nothing. Here's what it shows though is as drivers you guys follow and pay attention to all forms of raging in respect anybody. Who's behind the wheel up saluted? All right. So Townsend is going to stay with us to talk about something. He definitely knows a whole lot about IMSA racing. The upcoming race at Seib ring that he will be maybe he won't sleep so much during Seabourn. All right. We'll get to the bottom of that. But up next super super cross starts for web continues to be the hottest writer in the sport. After another win last weekend in Atlanta is the four fifty titled who's to lose that next on the motorsports. Our? There is Austin Fortner just about perfect so far. This is the east west showdown. Four. Be in the top two guys. Finishes third. Cleo win for me. Supercross racing ready that the gate. Get this one here. Top one is the number two. All right. So that supercross basically what a minute, but it had a lot of great stuff in there. And then if you know towns in AJ sort of supercross expert, yes, you are counted out there riding riding motorcycles out on the west coast there in Callie trucks, like eight winner. So let's get you out there. Okay. Triple there you go. See the the expert in the seed. Pretty cool to see Cinderella win there in the east west shootout. He's he's a guy that you've heard potential so much over the last few years, and it's potential injury potentially injury in feels like this. He's just everything's come together. And he's just rip it. They're showing showing what he's gotta get his teammate in really the biggest events so far this year with the east west shootout. And I can't wait to see that guy in a four fifty because he's a taller guy a bigger guy. Hope he gets a chance in the future. Yeah. See Serena's dealt with a lot of injuries. And that's what happens in supercross racing is as you get you know, at times, you're unlucky just get injured. But I felt like it was a huge win for him. Because Austin fork near on the east coast had lost a race yet. He had lost a heat race really hadn't lost a qualifying session. Hadn't lost a main band and awesome. Fortner got the whole shot and Adam seen Sorolla random down took the lead in kinda just wrote off in you know, in that east west battle was kind of one by the west coast because Dylan ran is finished second, which is also. Coast guy in Austin Austin, Portland finished third so a big win for Adam and its fourth win. And that's the thing. It kind of gets lost in the shelf will because it's been east coast for last how many weeks he's having a great year as well. Okay. So rela sorta slay the dragon if you will because foreigner had been sort of dominating, but not the case in the four fifty s because it's all Cooper web. It's ridiculous. So is guys just come out of nowhere. But I mean this into this year Roxanne, you know, you had Jason Anderson get hurt Tomac. Of course. But Cooper web has just five wins this season. And you know, after the first one they said it was going to be an avalanche, and it has been he's just been performing. So well, I loved the way he rides to he lets the bike kind of soak up into his body so much and it's very unique. When I was there at Anaheim to see it, and I just I think it's pretty incredible that young guys come up and surprise that the big dogs. Yeah. I mean, he just really count was his last team rebel. Team was kind of taking a chance on him. He'd struggled in five wins all of a sudden. And now he in those races. He's had guys run him down put pressure on them. And he showed you know, what I'm not gonna crack under pressure. And he's definitely the guy to beat now. Five victories. It's pretty crazy. He can kind of do no wrong. In fact, how the the mega million lottery winner hasn't really haven't announced to it is. I think it's is it I feel like I mean, he's he's doing everything. Right. Who knows because I should go buy lottery ticket. Maybe he's already won. Probably you're you might be rhino R has mentioned yet. Some other names. I mean, obviously Tomac Marvin must moose can write you just sort of trying to get in the mix. When Cooper web is doing everything. Right. It's hard to even break in the thing is e Tomac is so hot and cold. It really comes down to his starts. If he has a great start. It seems like he has kind of a good event a good race. But really it's just weird because one weekend he's the fastest guy by mile and then this past weekend Atlanta. He didn't qualify. Very well. He race wasn't good yet. A terrible start in the main. Ever had any speed Roxanne's just consistent not doing the spectacular? Marvin had a shot. He ran Cooper down had a chance to pass a made a mistake and Cooper wrote off from there. It's getting it's getting in writers heads likes what you might do it Seib ring next. I knew that was going to go that direction. We'll super heads today. Tono where it is bike week bike. That's that's down there or a half a million people will be part of the fun and really look at the two wheel takeover heading into Daytona supercross this weekend Daytona American flat track next Thursday, it will air on NBC and March twenty fourth and then the American sport bike racing associations Daytona, two hundred that's on the same road course as you've familiar with with the Rolex twenty four. So no question full of actions in Daytona Beck, seven thousand tons of dirt lay down at Daytona that equals fourteen million pounds. I mean, it's it's just crazy to see what they do to build these racetracks. And what do you think you're going to get on a sport bike and go run the two hundred man, I I've done some tracks as on sport bikes, but running the high banks sometimes in the rain there to nuts down at Daytona. But you gotta love the supercross race there because it raises a little more like the outdoors, and it usually mixes it up. I look free like Tomac to be pretty it's one of those racist because whether it's weather or just a crazy racetrack that Ricky Carmichael builds you had a guy like Justin Brayton become the oldest winner in supercross in four fifty history last year winning his first event at thirty four years old. So anything can happen Daytona? I remember that excitement to you mentioned Ricky Carmichael designs the core. So it's always a big of those big events Indy. Five hundred for supercross this tone out a big event, and it's happening this weekend. We'll town is back. We're not letting him out of here yet. He's coming back to talk about the series where he'll be racing next weekend. The biggest stars shine. Bright on NBC stars Sunday double header first Brad Marchand and the ruins take on Guinea Malkin and the penguins and drew doughty and the king's head down to Anaheim to face with Brian gets left. Anna ducks NHL star Sunday beginning at seven thirty eastern on NBC S N earlier this week one of IndyCar top stars Joseph garden went inside the glass with here McGuire. Joseph. Pick. These guys are Joseph their Vannatter VIN in the glass. I this is so cool. This is what you might be in store for tonight. I've heard about this. I saw this. Hey, man, you gotta be careful out there. So I actually brought you a present. I gave me I'm gonna give you a racing. Hell this what we use the keep our pets safe in the race cars. And maybe it'll help you the oh that looks perfect fit back to you guys in the studio to say back your garden. You're pushing me out of the way when the Puck's coming. But I love it that guy there you enrollment Yosi Romans. The man told you earlier so cool to see him when he first got here to where he is now and the teams come I mean, it's been amazing. The last couple years national really really to that energy. You're crazy. What you do? Give me this out. To see from Saint Petersburg this weekend. Absolute right on NBC sports. I love those crossovers are doing in the NHL seeing drivers get inside the glass after being ringside in Nashville. Joseph Ugandan is off to Florida where there's plenty of racing over the next week. Can we talk about Daytona? You've got obviously any car there in fate Petersburg AJ. Or I know I. In the break and insect racing in Seib ring in return to action with the twelve hours of Seib. Ring force gets almost one hundred fifty miles from Daytona Townsend back with us and really never left Townsend. I say back with us. But you've been a part of every segment on the show today as it should be. You're gonna be back in the car for Cebrian for his second race, the season another endurance event in January. You guys were actually both pulling double duty. You're both racing Rolex. You're both on the air. So this one I hate to say it's easier because I don't think anything you do guys is easy. But what are you looking forward to bring just looking forward to an awesome racetrack? Great fans. I mean, it's wild at the bring twelve hours you go to that infield. There are some people that look like they might live there and never left from from us steer. It's a huge event down there in the track of so much fun to drive and. The prototypes. Is there? GT cars bouncing around. You can use so much of the landscape the canvas if you will in terms of curbing bumps just there's a lot of freedom as a driver in terms of how you place your car. I just love racing there to challenge it's very physical. And we're second at Daytona. Which means we're now leading the points because the guy that one they're not running the full season. So it's it's defend the one that's tally going into this weekend. Yeah. I mean seabreeze a place that I've driven that many times. I've never raced in the twelve hour ring in what always stands out to me is at Daytona. When we get at night. There's a lot of lights that really doesn't make it like it's night. So it Seib ring. There are no lights out there. So how hard is it for you during the race? Specially is a GT car where the prototypes are coming in just kind of always on top you to know what's going on. And not making a mistake of of where they are going because you really can't see anything out. There looks like it it feels like every every year I race it Seib ring and everything's going great. Daytime son's going down. We're good. And then when it's dark, you think yourself this is nuts. Yeah. This is a bad idea kissing anything exiting turn one or coming on the backside. Now, they do bring in some temporary lights to try to help. But it really does nothing. Like, you said you feel like it's fifty years ago. And that's what's cool about seeing Brinson old race track. It really has very little in terms of modern improvement. And I love that it has all that rich character, and it's a tough tough race. You come out on top at sea bring into a big accomplishment, so Krista. I'm not sure if you know this or not we had to do a little thing at the end of Daytona. And he was celebrating and I had to wait for them as we talked about. But something I learned there is you slept for eight and a half hours during during the race and never really woke up until about noon. An inside your team battling for the podium. So. Seib. Ring held much more physically grueling of a racetrack in a twelve hour period. Is that over Daytona obviously being a twenty four hour race. Because when I watch it and what I've experienced driving race cars in the racetrack. It is rough turn one in term seventeen. Feels like your head is just bouncing around. So physically how much harder is it of a race low? The thing with Seabrook is different from daytonas. We see some Simone board action here at Daytona. You see how smooth it is. It's all paved we get to see bring those turn one turn seventeens are concrete and their conflict Crete from the forties. And there's some siegler and things but the vertical bumps just get rougher and rougher each year. But in terms of sleep, man, you're right, I slept. I had a beauty sleep at Daytona this year best sleep in my life. That was because the rain and the red flags that worked out great actually for me. But give me Seib ring any day because it's it's almost like a twelve hour sprint race. And I love I love staying up and going for it. I had to drive home after. Has joined us on the broadcast and you at that point had zero sleet hero, sleep. I think it a little more to watching me spray champagne anywhere finishing that. One flow. We finished fourth, right, right, whatever. Okay. Anyway. Good luck. Man. Feel good luck. I will be calling the race. Sure. Oh, don't let me down a call. It like it is. Okay. All right. You on track in the broadcast booth next weekend at sea bring a reminder tomorrow is International Women's Day. So up next we're gonna shine a light on female driver making history continuing to make history and stop leasing more to come after this here on the motorsports. Our on NBC F N. Tonight at Pittsburgh right now Sidney Crosby and his penguins have a spot in the east playoffs. However, someone's looking to change that that would be our TIMMY, Pinera and the Columbus blue jackets on the outside looking in for now the push for the playoffs. It's pittsburgh. Tonight's. Going to be a big game. Global motorsports star of the week. Also, big gates Haley digging. Kaley doesn't again from the NASCAR K n n pro series west a seventeen year old made a last lap pass to take the win last Thursday on the dirt in Las Vegas. The date after she announced a deal to run six Arthur races this season. More proof bitter teacher. He's getting brighter. Last Thursday wasn't just a big win for Haley dig in. But also, a proud moment for her father, of course, action sports icon, Brian Deegan. Here's a look at how the night went from their perspective. Count the number nineteen on Napa. Hey lane. One into giant off three's worth Chris is now in its rougher today. For whatever reason the jury on chopped here. It's just both years. Exit. Grip over there because it looks like your garlic. The direction I do like me like she's a dirty. She wants to overdrive everything offer shots. Tell water suspension in grip tired. So you can't do that. He's cars need the gone. A long race. Kind of back about halfway. On the. Nineteen. Push field. Rear view mirror because here comes monster claw with behind the wheel. She might be the fastest race car out on the track right now. Jones in the orange and blue number six. She's much. Druids into the corner. Again, close districts sure, she can just get their ship with the goal to Jagger in the states. Traffic. Fifty. Six. Second again, getting whatever it takes to get this way. New for some reason. Guys like what come down to last laugh again? And why? It's fun to families reaction there. I think she gets her energy out of that. It's awesome in her victories. She's lead for about. I think five eighths of a lab she's made to last lap passes. And what she's doing right now is great in what's better about it is her dad Brian and in her everyb- over people around her rushing her she announced six Arca races. She's running Canaan west races. So they're not pushing her to move up to quick sushi can get that experience. But she's got a lot of talent say that metal militia. Family not only Haley is doing so. Well, and you can see that little militia attitude come out on the last lap. They're getting inside on the dirt. But they've got danger boy running running eighty five or something. And then the the youngest son forget his name forgive me. But he was in Anaheim when I was there. He won the ktichen mini race in front of sixty thousand people. And then there's Brian Deegan. A seemingly every single event and still doing his own thing. So their age crazy is yeah, we also want to give an honorable mention to Scott McLaughlin, who drives fourteen Penske, this is the stralia supercar series, Glock Lynn the defending series champion right AJ both races. And last week in season opening event, we may see more of him in the years ahead. I've I've got to meet Scott a couple of times at a go-cart reysen in Las Vegas, and what he's done the last couple of years being part of Penske. He's just taking it to the next level defending champ. But. When it comes to qualifying getting everything out in one lap. He's the best in the series. And when it comes to go out there and win a racist. He's absolutely the main his dream. He said was to come the NASCAR he wants to kind of follow Marcus Ambrose steps. All right. Well, the path has been laid out. So what about the path for the podium in Saint Pete peas Townsend who do you think who's going to win? Who who who does? Okay. I'll look Alexander Rossi for the win okay consistency with his team race engineer with Jeremy Milas they were strong last year at Saint Pete. They've done a lot of testing down there and bring as well. I think I think also you're going to see willpower pretty strong. Nobody has the freakish rest reflexes like willpower does. But Ryan hunter race scored more points in the final two races than anybody. It's gonna be close, but I'm going willpower. He's gonna come out strong Rossi's can be quick. He's I feel like Rossi's going to be on the podium finishing second. And I'm gonna go with Joseph new garden. He kind of he kind of lost his way the second half the season. He's can be fast. All right. And we didn't have time for NASCAR picks Parker's not in the race. But I think he put himself on his fantasies. Even though he's not in the race. I dislike the jam. We started with a jab. We had to finish with the champ. Thanks for watching. We'll see you again next Thursday. Enjoy all of the racing this weekend.

But what really bothers me the most was the immediate lack of fightback from vessel and Ferrari after Singapore metal looked and sounded like it was done, although he has since vowed to fight to the end, at least. That's okay. He is making character, missed characteristic mistakes and should read. He seems to be managing the team from the cockpit during races, and that's not a good thing, highly distracting. It's might take anyway. What do you think f. one points into Russia Hamilton by forty over veteran drivers when he believed that's enough, it may not be. It could be though you never know Merck by thirty-seven over Ferrari. And that of course, in constructors IndyCar twenty eighteen season is all done. Coming up later.

Finale in California. All of this for Chip Ganassi racing. We're going to sneak you now into the snow raceway media center. You just sit here in the back and listen. You don't eat any food or anything to drink just as the media interview, Scott Dixon part one on race, line radio, coming into these races, you know you full of emotions and, and you know poorly, not just myself, but I think the whole field and you know, I think coming into the last race with the points lead, you just try to obviously not miss it up and and you know, have a good shot. I think for us, we kind of thought we had a lot weighed against us in the fact that you know, we hadn't really done to Ellen in qualifying fishy for for these row courses and throughout the season. So that was main focus and and. Not going to give a huge credit to the team. They kinda just win a wholesale change and everything worked out that the cow had some great speeds. So yeah, it's it's so weird. You kind of always doubt the situation that you're in early style have and maybe from the pastas where we've lost championships of sometimes silly things all sometimes where we've we, we just haven't executed well, so the whole race, you know, it's just thinking about things that rather out of our control cautions that we're going to put the field and none of a happened. So it was very smooth rice as you said. But but mentally it was it was toughened joining. But yeah, it's amazing to to be in the situation. Fifth championship account, think my family enough Emma support and what she's done, you know, every year, but, but this year, you know, with no exception to to everything, you know down to trying to get everything in the house to, you know, meals to whatever it was or just positive thinking. And you know today being the anniversary of her dad's passing, you know, it's extremely emotional, you know, here in family, but so cool to have poppy until he hit two, you know, stiffest chairmanship and being a couple of rice wins. But it was cool to really have him too. Nicely said, where were you approximately on the race track when you got the word that Rossi had a problem in the first corner, did you have have a relief moment? What kind of moment was that with IndyCar racing, though you think that somebody has a problem in the first corner, they tend to go to win the rice. So I'm like people like that. Yeah, yeah, exactly. I've been in that situation and I'm like, you know, please not let that be today, but I didn't. I didn't obviously see that part of the the stop. You know, the team came on as I exited the carousel, turn six and sit, hey, you know this going to be some caused coming back in in seven that have taken a shortcut that if damaged car on, I could see it was Rossi. But you know that that was the first thing that Clinton was like, and he's gonna get day. You know he's gonna to tune, they can, you know, fix the car and you know, have a strong strategy and come through and and you know, it's followed, you know, on the pylon I could see how he's moving up. You know, he's a fierce competitive. So as you know, Michael and everybody that team and you know, we, we saw that those cows had tremendous speed from from Hungary that was controlling the pace today. So, yeah, there was no point that I wasn't worried about that situation. Bruce with the emergence of Joseph new garden last year, one in the championship as younger iber and Alexander Rossi being a gentleman championship contender this year is a young driver. A lot of people thought this might be the year where the pendulum swings were. The young drivers take over and the older drivers kind of fade off into the sunset. Apparently you didn't get that memo and you're just really good news. Yeah. I don't know. Like I I, you know, it's it's it is a sport of of evolution rights and and you know, we're in the mix of that, you know, on thirty eight on Alta, the young Bucko was when I came into the sport and and you know, I'm very thankful to have the opportunity that have had and in IndyCar racing alone, you know, it's, it's a sport that of of love too many is on joy. It's it's the best racing in the world. You know, some of the people throughout my life, you know, attracts and and and you know, some of my closest friends, but it is fierce competition is, is the best in the world. It's the toughest the cause of very close to each other, the teams over a good. There's no small teams anymore. All of them very well accomplished and have great drivers, you know? So it's, it's extremely tough to win. Yeah, this Evelyn's happening. You know the there is, you know these young people coming through and and I think we sold it in full force this weekend. You know, with a ward, you know to come off his Indy lights chairmanship and, and you know to to smack it right into the first six at a loss race of the season, we're all of us have been competing for the whole year in college. We know, well, you know, shows the the youth and the telling us coming through and and you know, it's important for the sport. Obviously it's, you know, it makes me work out to which is great, but it's it's really important for the sport for its how continues and you know, he's a great great kid and got a great personality, and he's going to have a bright futures along with Joseph and Rossi. And you know those guys being Americans I think is is important for the sport.

If we go to see what we have here. Oh, Paul, Anton Dearborn heights, Michigan, faithfully, Sunday nights, eight o'clock, eight hundred c KLW in Windsor Ontario. He's just across the across the border there. Eric, always enjoy your show. Your excellent show each week. Thank you. Paul, you're always very kind with your compliments. We do pre she it, those. Here's another entry for your current trivia question. This was postmarked of course before I just gave the answer. So he's good. The twenty thousand super WRX. STI stands four side rear vehicle detection. It's basically a blind spot detection system. That's exactly what it is. Short note to say to you. ET thank you for the audio for the Robert Wickens video that he sent from his recovery bed. The let fans know how he's doing. It was simply good to hear the optimism in his voice about as recovery efforts. Thank you behalf of all the race library, oh listeners, your longtime listener from eight hundred CK l. w. in Windsor from Dearborn heights, Michigan. Mr Paul Anton. Yeah, we we wanted to play that for you. Just to let you let him let everybody know that he's optimistic about his recovery, but it's going to take a long time. Now we have since seen a second video that's come out where it appears that Robert Wickens kind of writing this. I call it a contraption because it looks like a stationary bike, but he's not on like a bike thing. He's sitting in his chair and it's and. He's moving his his legs, which is a good thing, and he makes one small comment to the camera when they when they recorded this and we'll was able to pull off the audio, go ahead will. Ryan, the Bank, he's written the bike, he's riding the bike and that's good. Now again, we're not doctors and it's going to take a while for any kind of spinal injury to be determined. And we've already been clear on that. I'm not trying to jump the queue or say something we're not supposed to, and the doctor says a could take another month before it's determined if he has a spinal cord injury, the movement of his legs might indicate to some that that may be on the road to recovery, and he might be okay. Others have set again, their opinion that may be the machine moving his legs, but you need to have that happen. Otherwise his knees are going to stop working. You need to keep the joints moving, keep it lubricated right. Exactly. For when the full recovery takes place, it's all part of the of the the recovery part that we're all watching very, very carefully and we need to make sure that we all keep it improper context, but it's great to see him fighting back and, and that's all very, very important. If the recovery is to be. Successful going to skip over that one because we're running a little low on time, Don Bain, and guess what station? He listens to AM eight hundred. See kale w as well. Eric, really enjoy your show Sunday nights, great audio from Robert Wickens. Thank you for that. We do pre she that Don. He says, I went to the glass city, two hundred Toledo Ohio recently and watch Canada's cayden lapse of it's come. Third, of course he's the former NASCAR candidate champion at the age of only what to eighteen. The youngest ever to do that. Of course, he without sponsorship, wasn't able to continue in the championship. It was kind of a shame, but he's doing these one offs and it was the glassy two hundred in Toledo, Ohio. Congrats to are good friend, cayden laps of each and Don for the he says, RV de postmarked. Okay, rear vehicle detection. That's exactly okay. We're good on that one. So Don will go into the into the drum as well. Okay, there you are. So the new question that you need to tackle staying with the meaning of the initials, the twenty nine Subaru WRX STI comes with a multi mode DC CD system in the drive train. You need to tell me what d c, right? C. stands for. Okay, let's work. Another pitstop will then part two of our media center audio which just proud into car champion.

In our first segments, let's finish her off show with now five time IndyCar champion, Scott Dixon from the cinema raceway media center fielding questions just after he clinched his latest title for Chip Ganassi racing, Patrick Stephan with trackside online leads enough on race, line, radio, Jim, think that, hey, I am the standard here. If you if you want to win the tip, you gotta go through me. No, I don't. I don't know. It's weird. I, you know, I love the sport. It drives me and in many ways and continues to, you know, I, I've never lost the fire. You know, each year that have been, you know, beetle, you know, even bad races, you know, it just you get this kind of far in this anger and Sergey that that you know, and these young people that come into and not just the drivers. But you know, you see it on the team front with engineers and, and you know that sort of things. But no, I don't think you know, for me, it's it's, I feel I feel privileged to be here a love doing what I do, and I hope that I can, you know, for the team sake compete on the high civil to to to get there, but no point do I think that you know the anybody to come through me to to get to a championship. Wolfgang too. I. Scott, I of Kongo relations. Hank you compare to America. You come from a relatively small country. You'd sealant, but was very, very big motorsport history in Becker on Bruce McLaren was legendary team, Chris Ayman who was regarded as one of fastest drivers Ewing area. Mike sec Lupo the youngest, Dr I never one cetera, et cetera. But you are by fons and most successful New Zealand motorsport personalities, five championship. What does it mean for you? And then you go back late ceiling. You expect getting a couple of awards from motor sport association, and you see them as a, nah, not at. It, you know, I, you know, that's that's part of what got me into racing, you know, and you know, with Dinnie home as well and and Kenny Smith, Kenny Smith was a huge part of my career. You know, we were. We were just talking about Kenny recently. He was here in America as well and doing thousand. You know, he's still wasting the seventy seven. But you know, I remember at a field a track in the south of the North Island by pomace north, you know, and and it was a rainy day was the first time I'd rice in the rain in formula v and you know, book up on my tent and my dad's like, hey, you know somebody here to see, you know, Kenny Smith and and you know, he talked to me for over an hour about, you know what you should do in the rain, and you know how to approach it. And you know, I think that is is, is how museum walls you know with the the sporting Sosa port of, you know, it was. There is a huge history. You know, it's it's, you know, sixty seventies eighties. There were at the top of the game, and you know, Bruce will know was. Lost far before you know the grates he could have achieved through his career even though you know what he had done is, you know, as a engineer and building the team, you know to to, you know the size, the mega sausages to these days, but some, yeah, at deny. Like I've somebody fond memories of going back home and and you know the the roar of racing down that to where we are today, but I'm very thankful for what they did and what they pave the way for for a country. So small and to to be so prominent. I think in in motoring around the world and not just, you know, IndyCar. But you know, in sports car racing, Brennan, hotly winning them on. You know, Bamba you know, Mitch Evans is a lot of young talent which is to say David mulcher in the back. Like Wolfgang. I have two questions. The first one I know you. I'm not love time to reflect on the Jose's in, but would you say that one of you turning points? One of the turning points, Toronto where you Yuan and all four of your title, rivals screwed up. With these. That was like the typing point be. Yeah, you know, I'm not gonna lie sometimes good to see, but it it. You know, I've been in those situations two, we just lose chunk points and you know, that's kind of the midway point will just off amid way. Right? So you know, there's still plenty of time to rebound and with the points and how it how it reflects here with double points. You know, you can have such a big shift anyway, but no, I think you know this this key key races throughout the season. Portland I think was was huge for us, you know, as far as lock in and being able to sort of come out of that parl up and you know the lack of the caution when it fell and to make the most of that to Texas Toronto. You know the the places that we won this year, you know they, they will make the difference, right? That's what makes the chairman show, but I don't know. I think Portland for me is is definitely stand. You know when that dust cleared, and then I could say, let's do it for wheels on the car and the engine Mus running the clutch in. I'm like, I'm going to try and draw. Away hit. That was at that point that I was going to be good. The other one was he's like this where you Clint five time. You're five championship fifth championship, and you're now I ninety four and the old time. Let's do. They make you especially pleased that you have resigned with chicken in tight McLennan option. You know it, it's, yeah, I'm happy to be back. You know, with chip, you know, I think when I look back at at, you know, the fish meaning when I've met chip, you know, in into where it is today, what we've achieved and what his teams achieved. You know, it's, it's a very small piece and in that whole wheelhouse of of what's going on at, you know, chicken SU racing, and I feel very lucky to work with the people that I do and chip goes out there and gets, you know the people that that that get the job done, you know, and and. You know these being years with, you know, we've struggled and haven't had the results that we've had, but chips, chips, go big high. He can come across, you know how and and brash. But you know, he's a, he's always been a good friend of mine and and you know, there was definitely a period throughout this year we took until the people, but it just felt right. You know, it felt right. It felt like this was home and you know somewhere that you know I should stick out for the time being. Let's go upstairs and see if there any questions. Dick's can you talk a little bit about what amazing year? It's been for drivers from down under with power, winning the five hundred. You winning the championship and just all the support. There are a lot of Kiwis around the track this weekend as wealth, but pretty amazing season for those from down under. Yeah, yeah, it's cool. You know, I think I was so happy for, will you know, at the five hundred I know will is is and he's he's super false. We will, you know, always see. Just, you know, the competition that has. You know, built in and and you know he's a fun competitive. We've we've had our ups and downs, you know, throughout the years and you know, it's it's, it was for me personally. It was just so cooled for him and Liz to to see him -ccomplish. You know that. I know that was one thing that was hanging over him and and that he really wanted to to win and and being with Pinski too, you know, which is such a powerhouse at Indianapolis, you know, I think was suppose you know something that is going to complete his career in something that he's gonna feel extremely happy about. But yeah, you know, again, I think there's a lot of talent you know in, you know, starring Zealand, you know, it doesn't always get a shot. You know, I think in modern day racing, it's it's tough. You know, this is a lot of rich kids out there and sometimes the opportunities don't get around. But yeah, I think right now, this is a lot of talent from from and you still in that you do have a fish right now in complete competing on the on the go station. Any other questions upstairs. Questions, josh. Scott for south. Congratulations on the championship. Now you are now third, all-time winless, and now you've moved into second just behind AJ Foyt. So just talk about that of of how you know you. You clearly are one of the grades in the sport. Yeah, tonight I don't see myself that way to, you know, I feel again, I feel lucky. I feel, you know, I'm very, very blessed in many ways. You know, bracing crib to meet the love of my life with Emma, you know, it's, it's just, you know, have a, you know, a great family to beautiful girls. Often, I feel lucky I get to do what I love to do. I enjoy racing. I get to work with, you know, the best in the business. I just don't see it that way. You know, I hope that I continue for more years to come and enjoy the sport for what it is. Genuinely humble almost will fall.
