"Syndrich will now go to the too and that keeps Many these job in the twenty one. Yeah let's see he's all in favor of this. Yeah i think everyone everyone kind of is happy and then ryan newman gets to go do whatever he wants to do. You can go to s rx. Yeah yeah no. I don't see a downside here Well i mean the only potential downside is that break laskey you know goes from a team. He won a championship with and has raised the vast majority of his career with to one that is a bit more uncertain and says performance is probably going to go down next year. But i don't even know how much i mean with this new car and everything and that's just if it's a new car then we're everyone's back to zero and you gotta figure too when you look at the. The big winners here has to be ford. He stays in a ford car. Yeah he doesn't go off somewhere else. Goes doesn't go back to chevy where he started with Something where now he is in that blue oval camp for the long term. I think manufacturer you like to keep that and then that that kind of you gotta figure if they shift a lot of their resources or rows. Which i don't think they've had in a while or at least Ahead as a attention for them because it's always been stewart haas than penske and then rouse and then to an extent you gotta figure rousers right there with front row motorsports in terms of how they get their attention from the manufacturer. But i think overall this is good for everybody involved It it gives kazlauskas kind of a foot in the door in terms of what it looks like to have ownership run your own team if he wants to revitalize his kids laskey racing decade or so down the line so i mean it. It's i think it's good for everyone. Especially if ryan newman's unsure if he wants to come back. Yeah and i agree. That four wins out here because not only they keep lasky but if brad coming into rally does something similar to what tony stewart did coming into Then it gets ford more competitive to more competitive cars on the grid and And that's something that row hasn't been really longtime is seriously competitive for race wins and for championships and And i mean we talked about it. When the initial rumors came out jack rushing getting a younger and he's a little worse for wear man. I mean he's devastated. Put away with a few times Sometimes literally and So to bring in a younger person to be involved in the management of the team and somebody who ran his own team in the truck series and they were successful You know this could be huge for ralph really big for ford and yeah for kazlauskas. You know maybe. He takes a minor step back and performance. Maybe doesn't next year but one way or the other. I think he'll come out on the better end of this In terms of his personal performance and what it leads to in terms of ownership and running rash Racing down the line and penske isn't really that her by because because they have austin syndrich. Yeah exactly and you look at fenway to. They probably want a racing guy in there as well wants Jack routes finally decided to step away. Yeah for sure and from that and we'll come back to the other story that You want to talk about in a second but from there. Let's talk about a kind of related story that we got confirmation. That jeff gordon is going to leave. Talks to run hendrick motorsports or prepare to run. Hendrick motorsports is going to be in this. The second in command next to rick hendrick. Same thing here you know. I mean just like brag. His laskey brings somebody younger with more race experience into a team that has in aging owner. It's the same exact situation. I mean the success level is different. Obviously right now. And it's super super important for hendrick motorsports because they are such a huge organization. Both you know for the sport financially that they have somebody who really understands what they're doing and how a team should be run running it and jeff. Gordon provides perfect opportunity. But unlike brad keselowski. He doesn't have that day to day operation ownership type of thing. Yes he's involved was involved in. The forty eight car is involved in the forty eight car. But rick hendrick was running the show so i think he needs time to ramp up and it makes no sense if this is going to be his future gig. It makes no sense for him to continue messing around in the in the broadcast booth. Bummer because i think he's good When there's so much at stake with hendrick motorsports and they can get him up to speed right now. When like we were mentioning earlier they have four incredibly young drivers who are all incredibly talented and capable of winning races and capable of winning championships. You start right now. You get those guys coming up through the system. Working with jeff gordon primarily and then the whole operation is now solidified for the next fifteen years. No problem. yeah. I mean you gotta get him out of the booth if this is the thing if this is the end goal anyway. Why not do it now. Why why. why wait. Why pussyfoot around it just get it done in the long scheming and like you said like he he did have some kind of hand in the forty eight but at the same time. It's not the same as running. All four teams right and nine to appeal sponsors here there and everywhere so i think it's a good move. I think now is just the time to get my joy out of the booth and just completely revamped xactly. Let's finish the job. Finish what we started everybody. Yeah exactly so adamant. There is available now gadhafi. It is going to be interesting to see what they do in the booth weather it. They add somebody with a boyer. Or whether it's just gonna be boyer or how that's all going to work. I think it's too bad booth Fine all things considered. I think that's perfectly fine. Especially when you re larry mac on remote to throw to. I think it's fine to have just boyer and someone else up. Their boy has the The ability to develop into like. Benny parsons type of person. Kind of look goofy. Funny you know. Load school as good insight. Yeah yeah still still still still relevant because he just came off the tracks so yeah You know like. I said i thought that that jeff did a good job but and and i think he helps because appeals to a wider audience. Outside of just you know the south. Because he doesn't had the accent. But i mean i can totally see. I mean it totally makes sense for him to do this. We also from kansas. So i think that are missouri so that was too early in the middle of nowhere yeah And then a. What was the other story. That i missed because i know something else. Ms tally gracing finally announced their program. Oh i thought put that down. No i guess. I didn't okay. Justin haley will be driving full time in the cup series on and they acquired to charters what how right so kelly will also have their expanding program which will have aj dinger running full-time And then he will have a part time nascar cup Venture as well does not say who they got the charters from interesting how they dissolved or how they how they happen but they now have The the good ole. Oh spire still tube. It's three charters to colleague. Wow well that's good. Yep so they have. So they'll have the two the two full-time deals yeah they'll have So spiral continue to have the number seven and and that may be the seventy seven just.

"Like hell. No don't do anything. And welcome everyone to in the draft with wilson. And was i'm wilson here in sunny southern california meanwhile right across the internet from beautiful studio of the dakotas version. Two point zero. It is one. Mr scotty was what's happening to their wives man. I'm telling you the good thing about taking a week off is the fact that you can just do whatever the hell you want. That's not having to do with work anytime for me. Which i'm sure from our conversations you just which to right now. Oh man got too. Many jobs is too much crap going on which is why we're actually recording this show on friday for once usually comes out on friday we We recorded on thursday this ten. Some people don't get friday some people don't get on the friday sometimes but but most of the time that's the ideal the ideal is that you get on friday today. Get it on friday because it's going to be sitting right here on my computer. I'm not going to be able to forget. Go right there in front of them absolutely And i don't know should we call it. The studio of the dakotas version. Two point zero or is it actually kind of two point five. Now because you got like the new set-up there. I think it's still two zero since we've so it would have been a two point three. I guess would have been something else. I just point been staying true to form on now man. So big shocker. Nascar goes to new track model east new for the cup series. Not new overall. All the excitement is going to be different is going to be like something is going to be a wild card race. No no just same damn thing we've been seeing for weeks now and carson dominating. Hey good for him. I guess the redemption story continues forum. Yeah and yeah like it got so bad that i was driving home from Twin cities as we were doing doing stuff. And they're just like yeah. No kyle larson shutting off his engine as he gets to the back streets to conserve fuel. Really have quite the lead then rally. He'll two hundred sixty four of three hundred laps. What is it about the hendrick cars this year. Though good in general. I just don't i don't but but the thing is is that this kind of breeds the idea that if you're doing good in the regular season the postseason might not be the best for you. Well that's true net notion. Yeah no that is a concern and and it's really weird. The weird part is that there again. More two hundred cars in the top three. And you thought oh. Hendrickson had kind of a mediocre day because not for the cars were in the top six. And that's that's always a good thing to have when you're when you get that thing hanging over your shoulder. Yeah not all of them. Were in the top ten garbage wrong. We need a symposium now one of them had a big issue that we'll talk about here in a second but yeah it's twofold. There are two things when it comes. Hendrick motorsports right now number one. We have to remember that like two years ago when jimmy johnson. Funnier before that. Like half. The reason jimmy johnson retired isn't because he couldn't win. Because all of hendrick motorsports win jack squat and now they're freaking dominating everything it's insane. How quickly things change. And then yeah number two like you said you have to worry about the playoffs at that point because we've seen so many times the team or the driver or the organization that dominates the regular season and the playoffs start in races in the row. And somehow they just can't put it together and you get the kabul syndrome where you know. You're great during the regular season. Or did any hamlets or the joe gibbs racing syndrome where you great during the regular season and then all of a sudden when it comes down to get done in the final ten they stumble and in one round and then it's over and there's time to recover at that point and then i guess i could throw a third thing on there and i know it's something that you brought up in the past. They're doing great right now and they've finally got it right with this car. With the with the current packages scr struggle with it for so long and they finally got it right now. Everything is going to change. What's going to happen next year when it's this next generation car and the playing field is kind of level to be able to keep this edge or not and i don't know that they're going to be able to keep the edge. I'll know if anybody's going to have an edge going in the next season now. I think we go and literally from scratch from nineteen forty eight and we're back again or no one knows what the hell's going on you just drive your exactly and it's interesting about hendrick. Is they go from like the one of the oldest lineups to one of the youngest and of like three years. Yeah that that helps a whole hell of a lot to in terms of i think their oldest guy might be larson. I think at twenty eight yay twenty nine. Chase elliott isn't isn't that age yet. oh. I don't even think he's twenty five. No china i think you look you look at every they have everyone under thirty like own that crew and that's pretty damn amazing to have that much excess in be that good That young and and they still have the world ahead of them. Essentially chasing just Just twenty five minutes twenty three. Yeah he is bowman this twenty eight a bowman and and elliott or larson are the same age. Yeah yeah wing you get four good drivers under under thirty on your squad. I think it's that's that's very promising regardless of what kind of car you're going to next. I mean obviously kendrick is known for getting drivers drivers young and writing out there. Kurt jeff gordon jimmie johnson after that and now he's got four opportunities to do the same thing and of course. Chase elliott already has won a championship so in that respect he's already succeeded in finding somebody who can make into a champion and then right out their career with him so unless beyond lucked. Into alex bowman kyle larson..
Sizing up Kyle Larson's Extraordinary Run
"Want to talk about. Kyle larson in this role that this guy is on. You worked with jeff. Gordon you compete against jeff gordon. The nine hundred ninety eight and this is what this reminds me of right now. That kyle larson has six consecutive races. First or second place finishes four victories. Three points races put in perspective australia. Steve what this role means because to me. It feels a lot like jeff. Gordon circa one thousand nine hundred. Well listen. so he's driving premier equipment. The hendra motorsports car seem to have the most speed in the field but the counter that is driving that against three other premier drivers right so it's easy to say it's got the fastest stuff yet but you to chase elliott william byron and alex bone to do it and oh by the way he did he drove around chase elliott with one of the most masterful gutsy all star race tight moves driving to the outside quarter panel a third lane. We had yet to see in ninety laps. So the move for the all star race was outstanding. I think kyle. I think this is the kyle larson. We all thought was out there. You can only decided but he wins in everything. He's so much talent we didn't know if it was his preparation holding him back if it was asked if it was his youth if it was his lack of mentor sh we didn't know we'll never know because it kind of all the jumbled up reset but now he's an organization with a lot of leadership.

Never forget pine now jimmy during that first step behind the wheel was et more. Making sure that you didn't wreck the race car. And kind of keep yourself in contention for the rest of the team.

There there's all sorts of good coming out of this hide. Cast instate is no different. I guess today is jeff davis. Jeff is the founder and ceo of maglio inc. A venture backed creative and media analytics agency famous for building brands on youtube with capabilities to also originate co create and validate new brands. Thanks so much for joining me today jess and it's a pleasure to be with you. It is a pleasure to have you here. And we're gonna be talking about youtube which i have to tell you is such an interesting topic for me because it's one of those things that i play with but i'm not really sure that i am doing what i could be doing to really maximize it so while i know the listeners of this i'm looking forward to getting a lot out of it as how fun. Yeah the one thing that Is been you know since my departure from procter and gamble. We spent more than a decade now on the youtube platform. So it's it's kind of ironic that it's been you know at that platform. You launched in in two thousand six is now quite an old platform. I honestly but still one that i think has major impact for how you create awareness and trump for products. So i look forward to talk to you. Yeah definitely and and you know what everyone says is video is the thing and so while youtube has been around it and my understanding. Is that for the longest time. Youtube has been like the second most searched site on the internet after google. That's correct that's that is still a factor that the second most used search engine people don't get that is youtube behind of course google and all of owned by google And so what. I like to say if you don't have at least a channel if you don't have some content that is searchable with the right words etc you're foregoing the second most you search engine in the world crazy crazy and and i think people might have sort of grown up with this idea that unless you're doing a how to video or sh showing someone had a take a washing machine apart and put it back together. Which is what. My husband uses it for That you don't need to be there but that's not really true anymore. Yeah definitely not in fact if you take a look at the most significant growing trends I haven't seen this now for for for a few months but but it's probably still holds true. You know how to videos are a major growing piece All of several categories including beauty and and skin care and all of that those are major categories and then if you look at the educational components and educational being a very broad topic but if you just take a look at khan academy or or the number of sites on there that are just geared for educational learning. I joke around. You could get from from youtube and it would be more valuable than a than a stanford or harvard degree because the content is so incredibly rich. Yeah that's interesting. I think you're probably right about that. Because it's practitioners teaching what they now. So you're getting it from the horse's mouth so to seek yes exactly yeah okay So what do you think is the biggest mistake that business owners make when they're building a brand on youtube that's actually an easy one and Ended up being one. That has been the case for some time. People are starting to figure this out but one of the biggest mistakes you can make is having content designed for another platform even another digital platform. Instagram facebook video. And that's done just assuming that. Oh you can just repurpose that to youtube. And the reason why i say that is that in general we found we were one of the first Consumer products so one of the famous parts of my story you know having served a couple of decades at proctor and gamble and then leaving and then joining the startup world and my first company was a company called or brush inc a or brush tongue cleaner. And it was this crazy cool product. That was patented from dr bob wag staff and he had tried to sell it to png and he had tried to license it to johnson johnson and it was was a tongue scraper. Ninety percent of bad breath comes from bacteria on your tongue and he had created a really great product t to remove bacteria from the tongue and he had tried to go about it. marketing it With traditional means one of his last failed efforts was a was an infomercial where it just failed miserably. And he ended up meeting with a couple of young guys. Here in lake city utah. Jeff harmon and And neil harmon and jeff was just one of these guys. That really wasn't early guy on youtube and was doing all new. All these insights and outs and And so we ended up launching this product on youtube. I was the angel investor and eventual. Ceo of or brush and the cool story about war shits in two thousand seventeen youtube. Recognize the ten most iconic admiral moments on youtube from the two thousand five launch of youtube and brush was one of those ten. You would've done. You may not have recognized or brush but you would recognize the other nine it was it was always like a girl. Campaign was the jeff gordon. Pepsi campaign was the kyrie irving Pepsi campaign with uncle drew. They were just these really iconic youtube long form campaigns that people are starting to figure out that maybe fifteen second or a thirty second or one minute was not the best way to to create awareness and trial for your products and services
"jeff gordon" Discussed on The Final Lap
"So yeah, I definitely like the the whole TV aspect though. It is definitely quite a quite an intense career. I will say if you didn't have to keep up with a lot all the time. And you know, I've I've watched him for a long time. And he does he puts in a lot of work to the jobs. I've seen them take notes and do all kinds of stuff. So it's it's really impressive to see the kind of puts into it. And I think he's done a little bit racecar driving on the side as well. I know he owned your team when you're going up to the ranks and stuff like that. But a race together. He actually used to do like a little a little Christian go karting leak way back in the day. Probably when I was like eight or nine so for a little bit. But then kind of buckled down on his job. So, but he he's a little bit here, and there virtual so who somebody that you race with at the local level on on your way to mass car that never really got a chance that you'd like to see possibly not for -tunities. Oh, man. I here's quite a few. I could name. So the one guy that comes to mind is Justin Carroll. He's a good friend of mine who or a friend of mine who I grew up racing with them van layers and legends cars from both end up late models. So and and guy named Tyler Hughes. Well, okay. So let's look at it for those names. Maybe we can give them a call and see what's going on. Yeah. Absolutely. So before we go who is your favorite race car driver. When you're going up, the guy that you're like, wow, I want to be like that someday all rainbow or your huge fan of Jeff Gordon, mostly because when he was prime when I was a kid and his cars super colorful side. Of course, check my ADHD mind. Like, wow, this guy's really cool. And of course, he he won a lot of racist that also help to. But now that I'm older I'm actually a bigger fan of Jimmy Johnson. Just because I know I know more about the sport, and what goes into it and just seeing the level of dominance. He had for so long. It's just really impressive to me. And I kind of do that. And you mentioned ADHD brain have you been officially? Nosed with ADHD actually have. Yes. Okay. Do you think that actually helps behind the wheel of race car it helps and hurts depending on you know, how I'm focusing that day? So I try and I try and use it to my advantage because I can actually. You got to motives, basically, where there's no between really where you're just kind of scattered rain looking all over the place. And and then you got your, hyper focus mode where you can actually get it. So that you're just one track mind. So ideally, you want to have it right in between. But but sometimes it got to settle and that's what I do. So it's helped think Berg will my it's not our thanks so much for taking time out on.
"jeff gordon" Discussed on In The Draft Show - NASCAR Talk
"That's I still took it as a good sign potentially. Good sign because they announced the Jeff Gordon was going to be back. But they didn't say anything about w yet. But I don't know what his contract status joy for that. Matt, Mike joy for that matter. Yeah. Wonder I wonder what their contracts then I think Mike joy is kind of like he's got like ten year. Now, I think he I think he leaves when he will say the same air Waltrip. I know, but it's so sad. Put on there for like what eighteen years now. So all I can think is that your votes. Scotty you and the other fan council members votes, basically got the steel done for Jeff Gordon Nolan. Listen, these things happen did they could I glad I can contribute. Even ask you about Jeff Gordon in that. But here's the interesting side note to that. Earlier in the week or else late last can't remember when it was Rick. Hendrick was doing an interview. And I guess they're asking me about the future a Hendrick motorsports. I don't even know how it came up because you know, he's not a spring chicken anymore on how old he is. But he's probably pushing seventy year little if over and he said, hey when I retire. Jeff Gordon gets him. He he gets the staff of awesomeness like he's taken over. Why not that kind of for me kind of came out of the blue because I think obviously, Jeff Gordon would be fantastic choice. But I didn't know I know that tight you knew they were kinda type it and there was like that with them. Well, I mean, you give a guy lifetime contract. Like he did. I mean, I don't know how you can not be that tight with them. And I think he realized in his time because Jeff Gordon's does did pony up the money to help Jimmy Johns through through who he's still part owner with. That's true. That's true. So I think that that's a big deal to and he sees he sees that future. And he sees his drive, and I think that's a huge huge boost for Mr Hendrick. And and why wouldn't you want to give the give the reins over to that guy? Who's as dedicated as as success driven as Jeff Gordon is in every aspect because if I mean, I it's a matter really of. Yeah. When Jeff Gordon wants to take over if he wants to take over, and, you know, obviously signing a multi year deal, we don't know for how many years, but a multi year deal with FOX. It's not. Not going to be this year or next year. Even maybe even not even the year after that. So Mr. h is going to be around for a while? But it's interesting to know that Jeff Gordon is already now if you're Jimmy Johnson, are you pissed off. Wait a minute. Why is he get the run things? I wanna run thanksgiving John ever showed that he wanted to be owner. So I think that I think he's pissed off because the guys owned his team. And in fact, I seem to remember somebody asking him at one point like right around the time when break his last Gad his thing going Kevin Harvick had his thing going. And of course, Kabul who still has his thing going. I think I remember somebody at one point saying, hey, those guys will have teams you want to have a team. I believe his answer was unequivocal. No, not in a million years. I don't wanna have my own team type. And I don't see why you would wanna t. No, I would want to deal with today's L. No god. No, especially nowadays. So, but of course, the the best Jeff Gordon news of the week. The Instagram with Justin Timberlake, man. Listen, man. JT was in Baltimore. My friend was front row and she'd loved it did did I have no doubt the puts on a phenomenal show..

"Garden Rangers of job, four of their last five games, tough loss on Saturday afternoon against Edmonton and the Rangers got to get going here and they've got Colorado tonight in an at Washington tomorrow. So those a lot of good feelings when the Rangers beat the the sharks on Thursday that come from behind victory in the third period end up winning that game in overtime. And I was a big win. David Quinn gets his first National Hockey League win, but a tough loss against Edmonton. When I thought they really had a chance with a team reeling at the back end of a fifteen game road a fifteen day road trip. And a blues game and regulation. You end up losing the next two in the next two days that could be start that really even a rebuilding year can be kind of disconcerting for David Quinn, Jeff Gordon, the powers that be with a New York ranger. So very interesting, early season game for the New York Rangers against Colorado Avalanche tonight, devils off to a three star. We talked about it yesterday. You can get excited about the devils and you should Paul Mary's off to a great start. They're getting goals without the benefit of Taylor hall. Pretty much in their goaltending from Kincaid has been good Burma. They started three in Orlando here, so they're taking on a Dallas Stars team that I'm sure is like biting through chains right now after losing the Ottawa the night before. So the devils will play their fourth game three and against the three and into Dallas Stars, keep an eye on the Florida Panthers team that everybody paved to be a team to beat in the Atlantic Division same for Philadelphia, very underachieving, early in the season, the metropolitan division. So one of the teams that have been the most disappointing in the Atlantic, the Panthers flyers, a little disappointing, two and three two. The season after getting a big win on opening night in Vegas against the Golden Knights. So let's watch this game of two teams, which one of these teams is going to kinda step board here very interested game in Philadelphia connects and the penguins in Pittsburgh Pittsburgh's to one and one, but I would not call them impressive at all..
