He led the championships and points that year, but came in second place in that stupid chase for the cup format to his teammate. You want to explain what that is really quickly. I don't know why you guys are giggling so much. Okay. Chase for the cup. So instead of points just being allocated at the end of the season and whoever has the most points wins, when you're in the chase for the cup, you got to stay above a threshold line, basically. And if you don't perform as well as the other drivers in the chase for the cup, you get knocked out. So like at the beginning of the chase, there's 16 drivers going for it. Then, after a certain amount of rounds, there's only 8 drivers left, four drivers left, two drivers left, so on, until it winner is determined through that way. But does it get down to two? It goes down to four, sorry. At least in the current rules. It goes down to four. You don't have to necessarily win during the chase for the cup. You just have to do better than the other drivers in it. Conceivably, all you get all the drivers in the chase with a cup could finish in the bottom 20. But as long as you're doing better than the other drivers that were finished in the bottom 20, you move on. It's needlessly complicated and it was NASCAR's attempt to add more drama to the championship series. Ironically, because of drivers like Jeff Gordon, who would just dominate all season, and it would walk away with the wins. So it's Jeff's success early on that led to him having trouble with the chase of the cup format. So Jeff, at this point, is looking at himself in the mirror, trying to figure out how to punch himself in the tummy. Yeah, yeah. For getting himself in this situation. Yeah. After Jimmy Johnson's second championship win, he liked Jeff Gordon's circa's 1997, was being talked about as a world's best driver, and had taken over as Hendrick's golden boy. Technically, if NASCAR had never changed the rules, this would have been Gordon's 6th championship. But the rules had changed, which meant Jeff didn't have 6 championships. He had four. So, Gordon's fans began a drive for 5 campaign to bring some good vibes for the 5th championship. 2008 was going to be the year. He had been building his rapport with his crew chief and felt like this could be another 2001 type of season. But a catchy slogan wouldn't be enough because for the first time in his career, Jeff Gordon didn't win a single race. Damn. Yeah. That's rough. Ever since he was 5 years old, he wanted every level and losing this much was incredibly painful. My baseball team hasn't won a game in almost two years. So I kind of feel for him. Yeah. Yeah, it's kind of the same. It's the same. Yeah. You guys have hats and uniforms? Yeah. You guys are efficient. Some would say the coolest, but those same people say, you're spending too much time designing your uniforms and hats. Playing baseball. Yeah. Dude, no one's going to remember who won. Yeah, that's true. But they will wear that hat. Yeah? Yeah, it's made it into a ton of different donut videos, so. HMU, if you want, if losing hurt that much, one might think that from 2008 through 2011, Gordon was exploring masochism. He lost a lot. He was unremarkable in 2009. Then went winless again in 2010. He snapped a losing streak of 66 straight events by winning three races in 2011. To make matters worse though, his teammate and protege, Jimmy Johnson, was doing something historically remarkable. He won 5 consecutive Winston Cup championships from 2006 to 2010. Wow. He was in the midst of the greatest stretch of driving in NASCAR history. Johnson's career was shaping up to look a lot like the career Gordon had envisioned for himself. Jeff finally understood what Dale Earnhardt felt when Gordon showed up and took over NASCAR during the intimidators late prime. Gordon and Johnson's relationship had grown a bit sour as a result. Gordon fans were entering the same state of denial that Earnhardt fans had experienced. The hard to swallow pill of aging had landed on Gordon's cup, and it was his turn to drink it. It was clear at this point that Gordon wasn't even close to the best anymore, and his career was winding down. Gordon was now 40, and his most 40 year olds can attest a completely different human being than he was when he was 20. He is now a father, a businessman and a philanthropist. Ten years from a championship he found himself often reminiscing about past achievements in racing. And fantasizing less about future ones. He admitted he wasn't as motivated any longer after 2010 by far his worst season. They had a good car and a good team, but couldn't pull it out, which to him meant that he was the issue. But he wasn't ready to retire to the old garage upstate. He still had a small flame for competition inside of him. And that flame kept dragging him into the speedway every weekend. He coasted in the middle of the pack in 2012 and 2013. By this time, Jimmie Johnson had won another championship and had lapped Gordon on the all time greatest drivers list, even Gordon had acquiesced and began calling his teammate the greatest driver of all time. It's like Birdman and Lil Wayne. No, it's like it's like Jay-Z and Lil Wayne on mister Carter. You know? Listen to that song. It's great. He made the decision that he would retire in 2015. He wanted one more push for glory. And in 2014, focused harder than he had in years. He still had a little bit of magic left in the tank and actually led NASCAR and points that season. Again, if the old rules were in place, this would have been championship number 7. God, however, he lost the chase for the cup. Coming up short yet again. Man, that's lame. Yeah. Hey, let's make it really confusing to watch. And like maybe the guy who actually won isn't going to win. He retired after the 2015 season to incredible fanfare at 44 years old. It's true he hadn't been one of the best drivers in the world in quite some time. But he was beloved by the NASCAR community and they came out all season long to give him an honorable sendoff. The last ten years of his career had been incredibly frustrating. He won major races here and there and certainly hit record breaking career milestones. But the thing he wanted most was to win championships and had been so long since that happened, he almost forgot what it felt like. Jeff Gordon was a home run hitter, a quarterback, unafraid to throw the deep ball. The basketball player who dunks instead of going for the easy layup. He was a visceral driver who chose the old school gut feeling approach to driving. That style got him to some of the highest highs, a race car driver has ever reached. It also cost him a lot of races. Some people felt like the second half of his career was held back by personal tragedy and a love of the limelight. There's no way to know if that is true. After all, if NASCAR had kept the rules the way they had been for decades, Gordon would have tied petty, Earnhardt and Johnson, with 7 titles. Regardless, Gordon's legacy, as one of the 5 greatest NASCAR drivers of all time, is set in stone. In 805 races, over 25 years, he had 93 first place finishes, 302 top 5 finishes, and four championships. Those numbers are all top 5. Perhaps more importantly, he had brought NASCAR into the mainstream of American culture. He opened the sport up to millions of people who otherwise would have dismissed it. Crazily enough, he still only 50 years old. Ancient for a race car driver, but young for someone who's experienced many lifetimes worth of victories and defeats. Jared Leto's 50 years old. Is he really? Yeah. No way. Yeah. But young for someone who's experienced many lifetimes worth of victories and defeats with amazing highs and terrible lows. Fame and scandal all cementing Jeff Gordon as a living legend. I think it speaks to the power of Jeff's impact on the sport in his early years winning those four championships so early on, how big of an that was, because I don't even, I think most people don't really remember the second half of this story. No. No, not at all. We were talking about 2012. I was like, what, no way, dude. Yeah. You'd be tired and like 2000. Admittedly, I'm a somewhat casual NASCAR fan. And I do watch on weekends, but I don't, I'm not really super caught up with all the drivers and all the lore, but yeah, it's just very impressive. One that is career lasted that long and two that his impact just kind of overshadows all the bad finishes and whatnot. This great driver, I don't think he's that great of a TV personality. He was on Regis and philbin. There's this push to get sports stars, you know, in front of the camera all the time. And they're always so bland because they're not trained to be on TV, they're trying to be like, I think, yeah. Jeff, I think, and during the NASCAR broadcast, he adds a lot of insight into race strategy and driver mindset, of course. But interviewing Tyga on Regis and it's like, what does he have to talk about? Much in the way that Tony Romo, I think, is probably one of the best right now. Yeah. Tony Romo really great. Anyway, thank you so much for listening to past gas. This was really fun to learn about Jeff Gordon. Once again, get refreshed on old jeffy there. I want to give a quick shout out to a homie that I met in Arizona who is a big fan of the podcast. Charlie at the Crescent ballroom, him and his house. Every week they said, and he was super nice. All right, well, thank you so much for listening to past gas. You can follow the boys. At Joji Weber. At James pumphrey, follow me at Nolan J Sykes. Joe, put your shirt back on, Joe. Never. I'm doing a 5 day challenge. I'm doing no shoot member. All right, thank you very much..

"Thought you did. Yeah, people actually think that you set the camera up and you just go and tell the history of the Pontiac Aztec. Just like us savant. Yeah. Like I've read every car magazine ever and retained all of the information. He's just good like that. Yeah, he just knows everybody, every executive from Detroit in the 60s and 8. And all of the Japanese guys from the 80s. He knows all their names. Like all elite performers searching for an edge, Gordon would use these whispers to his advantage. There was only one antidote guaranteed to stop the conversation about his legitimacy. Winning races. So that's what he did. He immediately won in Martinsville, and then in Charlotte while working with an interim crew chief, he hardly knew. Suddenly, the critics were silent. After that quick dopamine rush of winning two in a row faded, reality set in. The team was out of sync. Gordon just didn't have a rapport with his crew chief, and the engineers they lost were critical to crafting the fastest car. They ended the 1999 season in a deflating 6th place. Dude, it's like I always say it's not just the guy in front. It's not just the face. It's everybody behind it. That really makes the difference, right? It's like a team. You always have a team effort. Yeah. And it's like the whole team is as important as everybody else. You said that at least once. That's what I always say. 6th place was not exactly the follow-up to a great season he was hoping for. But Hendrix had zero doubts and in response to the whole evernham fiasco, he signed Jeff Gordon to a lifetime contract. After all, he was as Michael Jordan. They poached Robbie Loomis from Richard Petty's team to be the new crew chief, and Gordon was ready to start from scratch with a whole new squad. Lifetime contract. That's insane. Gordon's early rapport with Loomis was messy. Plus, there was a new stock Ford Taurus on the circuit with an aerodynamic design structure that his Chevy Monte Carlo couldn't compete with. This led to a pretty ugly first half to the 2000 season. At one point, Gordon had four races in a row without a top 20 finish. The first such drought of his career. Relationships take time to build in patients wasn't a common virtue in race car drivers. Needless to say, Gordon was agitated all year. As the season progressed, Gordon and Loomis began having minor epiphanies about how they could improve. It all finally came together at Talladega where Gordon took the checkered flag. This made him just the 7th driver in history to win the Grand Slam which includes the four major races at Daytona, Charlotte, Darlington, and Talladega. Wow. And the prize for that is the Denny's Grand Slam for life. You get a card. But only once a week, you can't do it every day. Yeah. He and Loomis had figured something out and Gordon would finish the season very strong. He had a top ten finish in each of his final 11 races for the season. Gordon was elated, and some of his darkest moments early in the season thoughts of doubt about his driving, it crept in. Maybe he was too much of a risk taker and maybe he needed ever him to rein him in. But winning cures all and Gordon knew in 2001 that he could win with Loomis. And most importantly, without ever him. I mean, Evan ham is a mouthful to say, Loomis just rolls off the tongue. Right, Lewis is from Harry Potter and ever and him has that sneaky end right in the middle. Yeah. It's fun to say on a podcast. Gordon and Loomis were all smiles at the Daytona International Speedway on that beautiful February afternoon in 2001. The team had a quiet confidence about it. That was similar to the 1998 season. It felt like they all knew the same secret, a dirty little secret, and they weren't going to tell they were going to win it all that year. And they were going to prove it, starting in Daytona. But the day didn't go the way they are anybody else had hoped. They finished 30th overall, but by the end of the race, the results had practically been forgotten. On the final turn of the final lap, while trying to make a final push to victory, Dale Earnhardt was clipped, attempting to gain control of his car, Earnhardt over adjusted and his famous good rinse sponsored number three cars slammed headfirst into the wall at a 150 mph. He was killed instantly. The world watched and studded silence as a tendons tried to revive him in vain. It's no secret that danger is a massive part of the sport. For some reason, it's even an exciting element that keeps them coming back. However, for a legend, this is like the saddest thing ever, dude. This is the saddest moment in sports. However, for legend like Dale Earnhardt to perish on the track, just didn't feel real. His lore had been elevated to demigod status. It's as if a famous character like Hercules or Paul bunyan died. His death would be felt in the industry for years to come. NASCAR would usher in a new era of driver's safety tactics in an effort to prevent this from happening again, even in death Earnhardt would continue to influence the support that he had dominated in life. Yeah, man, this really affected NASCAR. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Because of Gordon and Earnhardt, NASCAR was everything we talked about in the last episode, NASCAR was really becoming like a mainstream sport. And I think this race may have been the most like they just signed this huge TV deal. And I think this race may have been the most viewed race in NASCAR history. If not that, then definitely one of the most viewed. And then all of a sudden, a guy died on TV and it really set them back. A lot, a lot. Yeah. We'll be right back with more of this story, but first, a word from our sponsors. This episode is also brought to you by the zebra dot com. Think about it.

"Nice. That's wild. Oh no. Oh no. No, no. James. Are you coming to the office in both your eyes? It's covered in blood. Well, this is not a men's health podcast, although it probably should be. This is past gas. Welcome back, everybody. We are an automotive history show. I am Nolan Sykes. Joined, as always, by my tube buddies, we got Joe Weber. What's up playing big nation? Hope you're good and healthy. And of course, we got James pumphrey. Like James mentioned, this is part two of Jeff Gordon, our conclusion of our two part series of one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time. One of the most iconic NASCAR drivers of all time. I'm looking forward to seeing where our story takes us this week. Yeah. Guys, how are you doing this week? I'm doing pretty good. I just came back from Arizona testing the new Hummer. Oh yeah, how was that? You're testing it for GM, right? Your test driver. Yeah. They gave me a helmet and made me sign my life away. They call you the Chuck Yeager of EVs. Yeah, 'cause I broke the sound barrier in a Hummer. It was pretty hard, but I did it. They were like, we did not expand for that to be possible. You just hit like a tailwind and you're going downhill and you just clutch your crotch in Florida got up to 700 mph. It wasn't really easy. It was cool though. I don't know, I think this comes out after the embargo, but it's scary fast, and it's 9000 pounds, it doesn't feel like it. That's wild. That's insane that they built something like that. James, how are you doing this week, my man? Solid as a rock. Like a rock, Chevy. Like the country Iraq, oh God. That's a joke in the rest of development. You guys, that's why I thought you were referencing. That's why I said, oh God, you have. What are we quote in sitcoms now? Buzzing. Yeah, I was wondering why you have it on. Joe never wears a shirt usually when we record. And I got on the Zoom show. It's too high in my room. Clearly. Okay. Yeah, is that all right? Do you want me to tip it for the camera? You're good, you're good. Just for the different audience. Yeah, Joe is shirtless for the remainder of this episode. This is not a bit. This is happening. And we're just going to power through it. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it. I bet he gets cold. Yeah, we'll see that shirt. We'll see the return of that shirt for sure. All right. Let's get into our story, huh? Yeah. In the words of Gordon's head engineer, Brian white cell, quote Jeff's ten feet tall. Just brimming with confidence and aggressiveness. You would really get a feel throughout the weekend that when he walked in on Sunday unless something came out of left field, this was ours. After one of the best seasons in racing history, Gordon picked up right where he left off by winning the Daytona 500 in 1999. As a result, the media assumed this was going to be another legendary season for him. He'd go on to win three more races the first couple of months, but then things began to fall apart. He ended up with 7, did not finish his and struggled to consistently finish in the top ten. The car had issues, sure, but the bigger problem involved the car's driver and his crew chief. Wait, so was his car called the rainbow warrior? Jeff was the rainbow warrior. The car is the rainbow warrior. Oh, he's just the pilot. He's the pilot of the rainbow warrior. Yes. Ever since they're fighting the previous season, Rey ever him and Jeff Gordon's relationship had stalled out. They had fought constantly and it affected their ability to be competitive. According to Evan ham, Gordon quote had become less interested in being coached. Which was a diplomatic way of saying, Gordon wouldn't listen to his input anymore. Evan Han also felt that after 7 years as crew chief with 47 victories and three championships, he wasn't given the credit within Hendrix organization that he believed he deserved. Gordon was a great driver with an incredible team and evernham managed both of them. So after a couple of bad races and a dispute over the design of the 1998 championship ring, evernham left mid season. He took an offer to own a team for Dodge and brought three very important crew members with him. Later, Evan Hamm would say, quote, it's a saying thing that tears rock bands apart. I'm the one working a gazillion hours with these guys. And Gordon is making $25 million a year. And I'm only making 1 million. Gordon and team owner Rick Hendrick felt sideswiped. Everything they had spent 7 years meticulously building to sustain championship after championship was now no longer. When the rare sports dynasty occurs, the discourse always turns to the question of who is the most responsible for all the winning. Think Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are Shaq and Kobe. And also $1 million a year is not anything to balk it. No, that's a lot of money, especially back then. And Tom Brady and Bill Belichick is a pretty apt comparison, but I think Bill Belichick is more responsible than that guy. And Shaq and Kobe not apt because they're both athletes. They're both stars. Phil Jackson, though, put them together. Phil Jackson and Kobe did. Phil Jackson, LeBron, Kobe, Jordan. He doesn't even have enough fingers for all his rings. He's gonna have to grow some more fingers. Kareem, magic, Larry Bird. This is my Dream Team. Clyde the glide drexler, doctor Jay. Wilt Chamberlain. Dude, Mickey Mantle. All right, let's move on. The speculation began once ever hand quit. Did Gordon need ever him or did it ever him need Gordon? Everyone picked the side, James. There is little room in sports media for a nuanced position. Everyone's gotta have it hot take. It's entirely possible, likely even, that they actually needed each other for a certain period of time. Their collaboration produced something special. And like many relationships, they had grown apart, and it was time to move on. But that's not a good lead in on SportsCenter. The question lingered and Gordon heard it loud and clear. He had scoffed at this notion that he had won so much because of masterminds and handlers and expensive equipment. He was the best driver in the world, and he'd earned every lap. That's like when you say, when James comes to me, he says this script is bull. I'm in a freestyle. And then those are the worst episodes. Just kidding. It's never happened..

"Dale Earnhardt was having the worst season of his career. After a nasty rack in 1996, the intimidator was experiencing some unfortunate health issues in the 1997, he finished the season without a single victory for the first time in almost 20 years on the circuit. We made a video about Dale Earnhardt that I really like and we talk about this quite a bit. He would like pass out. Oh jeez. Yeah. So subsequently, Jeff Gordon racked up ten wins on his way to a second Winston Cup title. The salty rivalry was over. There is no more question as to who was the best stock car driver in the world currently. It was the boy wonder from California who drove the silly rainbow colored DuPont car. But that rainbow colored car's fame grew along with Jeff Gordon's. It was known as the rainbow warrior and it was on t-shirts, posters, backpacks, cereal boxes, trapper keepers, from New York City to edge hill, the smallest town in Georgia, everybody knew of and had an opinion about Jeff Gordon and whether you thought he was the greatest thing to ever happen to racing, or he was a prima Donna that was bad for the sport. You couldn't deny the obvious. His talent skill and motivation had made him a living legend. After his championship the previous year, after back to back ten win seasons, the world was now used to expecting greatness. But nobody could have predicted what Gordon would accomplish in the following 1998 season. Fans of sports always remember that truly incredible seasons. They sit in their watering holes, talking about where they were when Jordan won his 6th ring or bonds hit his 73rd home run. They used words like magical or surreal to describe what they've witnessed. Gordon had already become the greatest young driver in NASCAR history. And if you just paid attention to his regular appearances on talk shows like Letterman, you could convince yourself that he was just a celebrity now, caught in the corporate machine, coasting on a cool $20 million a year. But you'd be wrong. Because behind the scenes, Jeff Gordon was gearing up to chase what every legendary athlete needs to solidify their legacy. The where were you when moment? Gordon and his Hall of Fame crew chief, ray Abraham, had reached a new level of synergy. Their communication had been finally tuned and their instincts as a team were sharp as an obsidian knife. That's sharp. Yeah, that's pretty sharp. Like micron, one micron thicks sharp cut your cells kind of your skin cells. Cut your life into pieces with that thing. Only if it's your last resort. Gordon was a master driver, but he couldn't do it alone. He had a great team and Abraham was a critical part to all the success. However, tensions had been rising between the two amid the pressure to win. They knew an order for them to win back to back. They needed each other more than ever. The 1998 season belonged to Jeff Gordon. He won a lot and one big time races, Rockingham, Bristol, the Coca-Cola 600, the southern 500, all became another notch on his belt. He amassed win after win. At one point winning four races in a row, which had only been done once, 30 years ago. He was winning races regularly by 20 car links or more. He claims often mid race he'd be leading by so much. He'd have to tell himself to focus. So he wouldn't start thinking about where he was going to celebrate the victory that night. I'm going to go to Chick-fil-A and then I'm going to go to the double tree. Open up that mini bar. Even when he wasn't winning, he was almost winning. He finished in second place 5 times and third, three times. While his fans, the rainbow warriors were in a perpetual state of euphoria, his haters refused to believe it could be true. This level of winning was so unprecedented, they assumed he must be cheating. NASCAR gave into their paranoia and performed a full investigation, only to find nothing. Gordon wasn't cheating, this rare domination was an organic result of skill, talent, focus with a sprinkle of luck thrown in. By the end of 1998, he had delivered a record tying 13 wins, a feat only achieved one time in history by the goat, Richard Petty. I guess you could say that driving was his stupid human. His stupid human trick. Yeah. Yeah, I wonder which of those wins that season he'd put on his top ten favorite wins of that season. Because the top ten. Gordon had won two consecutive championships. Three and 5 years. He would have had won four consecutive, if not for an untimely reckon 96. He'd won 47 races in his first 5 years, only 16 drivers had 47 wins in their entire career. Damn. He had started off as a rookie outsider, became the next big thing, and then the sport's biggest star. And in 1998, he changed the conversation yet again. Because now in bars across America, people would talk about where they were in 1998 when Gordon won 13 races. During his SNL monologue, Gordon interacted with two actors in the audience who are playing NPR loving manhattanites who have been converted to NASCAR fans because of him. Gordon warned them that their elitism wouldn't be welcomed at the racetrack. He would know. After all, it took him becoming, after all, it took him becoming the greatest young driver in history to finally be accepted by the fans. After his first 6 years in NASCAR, Jeff Gordon is the undisputed best stock car driver on the planet. However, he was still very young, and as a driver ages, racing careers can become long and arduous. Life was already challenging enough without the perils of living under the public's microscope. What he's accomplished so far is unprecedented, but what Gordon doesn't realize yet is that bigger tests were still to come. And that's next week on past gas as we give you part two of Jeff Gordon's story. And let me tell you, you don't want to miss it. He seems cool, man. Don't want to close my ears. You don't want to seem 'cause I'm in man and you don't want to miss part two. Gonna talk about Jack and maybe I was never racing and I miss you, babe. And I don't wanna miss the thing. I guess he could say singing is James stupid human trick. That's right. So that was part one, part two coming up, very excited for that. But right now, it's time for some listener mail. James listener mail. Hey guys, I'm a big fan of donut media. Had an idea for an episode of past gas. In the late 60s international harvester started making pickup trucks and SUVs. Now you guys have mentioned the crew cab international truck in an episode of past gas. And I think it would be cool if international harbor stir got its own episode..

"Been like, yeah, I actually smell like. COVID has affected everybody differently. Apparently, Matthew McConaughey doesn't use deodorant. Oh yeah, that tracks. Yeah, but you probably smells good anyway. I would smell it. I bet he smells like beautiful sun sweat. Yeah, but his Musk is like really intoxicating. Yeah. Yeah. Despite hitting the fast lane to fame, Gordon never lost focus. In the 1996 season, he won and won and won a lot. He exceeded his 7 victory 1995 season winning ten races, 5 more than anyone else. However, he felt the second place in the championship and lost to his own teammate, Terry Labonte, he didn't win it all, but it was clear to everyone that Jeff was here to stay. Do you think he refers to himself as Jeff? Do you think he's one of those guys? I think he calls himself a little Jeff. Little Jeff wants him to want some milk or he's going to be angry. A little Jeff wants sushi for dinner. 17 victories in the last two seasons was impressive as hell, but Gordon's hunger to win was insatiable. He noticed that he had a poor start to all of his first four NASCAR seasons, and he planned to rectify that. So Gordon set his sights on winning the first race of the 1997 season at NASCAR's biggest event, the Daytona 500. I am Iron Man. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no no no, but he wasn't the only one. His rival Dale Earnhardt senior, who had never won the 500, had been dominating an intimidating all day before wrecking his car with only 12 laps to go. One man's loss is another opportunity in Gordon took advantage, the lucky break becoming the youngest person to win the Daytona 500 at only 25 years old. Breaking NASCAR records was becoming a regular occurrence for Gordon while Earnhardt fans of course were convinced that if he hadn't wrecked, the intimidator would have certainly won. Meanwhile, the media kept calling. He was a regular on the talk show circuit see you didn't need to be a NASCAR fan to know the name Jeff Gordon. And as a result, NASCAR highlights were no longer just relegated to the end of SportsCenter or talk sports radio. Television ratings were sky high in the speedways were packed. The crowds were no longer just the typical beer and shot car racing fans, a new breed of fans started showing up to the events. Ones that marketing companies like to call yuppies. NASCAR had gone mainstream. Now you would think all of this newfound fame would go to Gordon's head and affect his racing. Nope, you're dead wrong. Right after winning the Daytona 500, he went on the Late Show with David Letterman only to turn around and win in Rockingham that weekend. Damn. Gordon won in dramatic fashion all season long building a reputation as a great end of the race driver, which made him a must watch every weekend. Sorry, I guess he could say winning races was his stupid human trick. Yeah, that's cool. Yeah. Letterman Joe. Because that's a segment on David on Letterman. Yeah. Yeah.

In 1976, AutoZone opened their first store in forest city Arkansas. 40 years and more than 6000 stores later, AutoZone earned The Crown of America's number one breaks destination based on data from the NPD group. Get in the zone AutoZone is America's number one breaks destination? Well, they have durr last breaks there. Those are the parts that more consumers choose and the parts that more auto technicians choose. The data showed AutoZone as number one in brake pads, brake rotors, brake drums, and brake shoes. See, I would have thought that they would have been America's number one in asking for the year make model when you need an air freshener destination. Brake pads have a limited lifetime warranty too. A few years ago, AutoZone introduced dura last elite brake pads, with consumers concerned about brake noise and safety, AutoZone started stalking this higher quality brake pad made from copper free ceramic. The dura last elite pads feature a patented transfer layer that extends the life of pads and rotors, lasting up to three times longer than standard aftermarket brake pads. Provided people change their rotors when they change their pads, do the brake job right, everybody. The dura last elite transfer layers applied through the hex pattern on the pads. They're actually kind of good-looking. Today, AutoZone has dura last, last gold, and dura last elite break parts available at more than 6000 stores and on AutoZone dot com, where people can order parts for same day pickup or free next day delivery. This sounds like an ad, we should probably wrap it up with a jingle then. That's appropriate. So if you're encountering brake noise, vibration, low stopping power, any.

"Even the intimidator himself appreciated. At the start of 1996, Jeff Gordon was no longer the next big thing in racing. Like Gretzky and hockey and Jordan basketball, he had become the cool young phenom taking over the sport. Thrust into a tornado of media attention, commercial endorsements, and celebrity elbow rubbing. Gordon was bringing in a younger generation of fans, expanding NASCAR's popularity for the first time in decades, but not everyone was happy about it. The swaths of working class fans of Dale Earnhardt senior felt like Gordon and his media savvy was bad for the sport. But the truth is, Earnhardt's fans saw the writing on the wall, deep down they knew a massive transition was in place. And if the aging Dale Earnhardt was to ever get that 8th championship, he would have to go through that Gordon kid. Doesn't rubbing elbows sound like such a bad thing. I hate when I'm on a plane and I rub elbows with someone. I actively avoid it. It's because that's a gross person on a plane and not a beautiful, nice, clean celebrity. That's true. They are very clean. Yeah, if there's anything I have to say about celebrities, is that they're well known for their traditional bathing habits and hygiene advice that always makes sense. Why do you say that with a smirk on your face? It wasn't Dax shepherd. Yeah, we don't bathe our kids and there's been a lot of celebrities in the news lately. I feel I've been like, yeah, I actually smell like. COVID has affected everybody differently. Apparently, Matthew McConaughey doesn't use deodorant. Oh yeah, that tracks. Yeah, but you probably smells good anyway. I would smell it. I bet he smells like beautiful sun sweat. Yeah, but his Musk is like really intoxicating. Yeah. Yeah. Despite hitting the fast lane to fame, Gordon never lost focus. In the 1996 season, he won and won and won a lot. He exceeded his 7 victory 1995 season winning ten races, 5 more than anyone else. However, he felt the second place in the championship and lost to his own teammate, Terry Labonte, he didn't win it all, but it was clear to everyone that Jeff was here to stay. Do you think he refers to himself as Jeff? Do you think he's one of those guys? I think he.

"As it turned out, excellence would have to wait as Jeff struggled his way through the rest of the 93 Winston Cup season. He won rookie of the year and is still the only driver to win it for both the bush and Winston Cup Series. But he fell to 14th overall in points and destroyed a few cars along the way. His reputation as an out of control and reckless driver was gaining a little bit of merit. One driver described him as, quote, hitting everything but the pace car. But if Tom Cruise action movies had taught us anything, it's that hyper confidence combined with blind aggression, always works out in the end. I've never seen days of thunder. Great movie. Is it, how does it rank in the list of racing movies? What did you say? Number one. No, for sure. Really? Yeah. Imagine because he drives a Chevy lumina and that's your favorite car. You know, Top Gun? This guy's got Ed Harris. Same movie. Top Gun, but with cars. Yeah. Is there a volleyball scene? No, there's a wheelchair race. That's analogous. It's really good movie. When I was a kid, my dad and I went to Best Buy and bought surround sound. Oh. And installed it. And then we also bought because we got a DVD player. And we also bought Top Gun and days of thunder and watched them both. It was one of the best days of my life. That's an amazing Tom Cruise fan? No, you just liked surround sound. No, he just had an affinity for good sound design. That's an awesome day. Dude, such a good day. Meanwhile, back in 1993, the media didn't care that Jeff only finished 14th. They were smitten with them. Heading into the 94 season, Gordon was heralded as the next big thing. And the future of racing. The pressure was turned up. But Jeff, he was ready for it. He won the first race of the season, and the exhibition known as the bush clash. Barely beating NASCAR's megastar in 93 champion, Dale Earnhardt senior. Earnhardt, who owned one of the sport's most fitting nicknames, the intimidator couldn't hide his displeasure of losing to a 22 year old. Sarcastically calling him boy wonder. The cosmos would hit us again with a crema foreshadowing of what was soon to be a classic rivalry. I mean, I'm like, I'm in my mid 30s close to my late 30s. If some 22 year old showed up and was like way better than me, I'd be like, that makes sense. Born in 51, so he was 42 at this time. I was born in 1951 yes. After showing massive improvement throughout the season and with 41 races under his belt, Gordon was still desperate for his first NASCAR victory. So with 25 miles left in the Coca-Cola 600, he took what at the time was seen as a massive gamble. During the final pit stop, he decided to only change two of his tires and set up all four, spending only 8 seconds in the pit. This positioned him into the lead and helped him beat out the favorite of the race, Rusty Wallace, by exactly 8 seconds. Rusty Wallace said afterwards, quote, I'll never thought that two tires thing would work. It was a chance he move. Very savvy. Gordon's aggressive nature had finally gotten him his first victory, as well as a teaspoon of respect from a racing superstar. After another major victory at the brickyard 400 in Indianapolis, Gordon would be inconsistent for the rest of the 94 season. He watched on with envy as Dale Earnhardt senior won his second championship in a row, and 7th of his career, tying him with Richard Petty for the most winningest of all time. While Gordon knew risk-taking was one of his ingredients for success, he still hadn't refined it. He wouldn't win another race that season. But managed to finish in the top ten in points. He tore through a lot of expensive cars, but it was necessary for his growth. He could see more clearly now what it took to win at this level. He was more confident than ever, heading into the 1995 season. 1995 started out rough for Jeff Gordon, who had a miserable first race at Daytona. This left racing fans to wonder if maybe he was still too young to truly compete. But all jeffy was just a warrant and up a baby. Oh. He came in first place in three of his next 6 races and finished the season with 7 total wins. Going into the final race, he found himself neck and neck in the standings with Dale Earnhardt senior, who was searching for his third straight championship in 8th overall. This feat would have given him the most all time and solidified his spot as the sport's greatest driver. Earnhardt fans had scoffed at the idea of a young California kid keeping Earnhardt from earning his glory. Conversely, the growing Gordon fan base reveled in the prospect of their new favorite driver, keeping the racing legend from earning his ultimate glory. It was sports drama in its most titillating, the intimidator. Had no qualms doing his part to throw some high octane fuel on the fire. This is exactly what happened last season in F one with max and Lewis. But it's like. Lando had won. Or like a young girl. He's not a rookie, though he's been in it for a couple seasons already. Yeah, but max has been in it for a minute. It's not a perfect analogy. I just want to put it. I just want to put it in context for the F one fans who are like, what's a NASCAR? Yeah, I apologize for nitpicking your analogy. Thank you. Once it became obvious the season would come down to the two of them, Earnhardt began taking jabs at Gordon's age to the media. And one quote, he said, if the boy won the championship, he'd have to toast his crew with milk because he probably old enough to drink. That's so good. We're not even implied that maybe Gordon was a homosexual to really rile up his more conservative fan base. So the story with that is that Gordon he had been dating miss Winston of the Winston dynasty. No, she was a model named Brooke Seeley, she was her job was to give out trophies. On victory lane, but Jeff and Brooke decided to keep it kind of like on the DL and when he heard about it, he quipped that he said some of us were beginning to wonder if he liked girls. Classic, the intimidator was put in his nickname to work. It wouldn't be until years later that Gordon admitted that he had been hurt by all that stuff. Despite being his current rival, Gordon was a huge fan of diller and Hart and had admired him since he was a child. However, what a loser, what a baby. However, in the moment, Earnhardt's words fueled him and aided in his motivation to shock the world. I just imagine like a training Montage and he's a real sweaty and just like squeezing milk out of a bottle. Wait, the final race of the season was the incredibly challenging and it super excitingly named MBNA 500 and Dover Delaware with the championship on the line, Gordon took off and never looked back. He drove with a healthy combo of anger and control. I hope people say that about me. He dominated from the beginning, holding the lead for 400 miles with a 500 mile race. Not only his third season, he became the youngest driver ever to win a NASCAR championship while preventing racing's biggest star Dale Earnhardt from winning that coveted 8th title. At the awards banquet while receiving the championship trophy Gordon toasted with a glass of milk. In response to Earnhardt, a move that.

We'll be really embarrassed if nobody buys tickets. On a cold, January night at 30 Rockefeller center in New York City. Jeff Gordon was backstage at the famous studio 8 H preparing to give his opening monologue. He must have been wondering how a kid from small town Vallejo California, whose childhood nights were spent pulling fast turns on an old dirt track would end up hosting Saturday Night Live. This was an achievement attained primarily by those who had reached the summit of American pop culture. Famous actors, musicians, and mega celebrities, but there's a very obvious answer to how Jeff Gordon ended up in New York that night, performing sketch comedy for millions of people. He was a good driver. Insanely good, in fact, and when he burst onto the scene as a 20 year old, the NASCAR world took notice. Then when he became the youngest person to ever win a NASCAR championship at 24, the rest of the world took notice, too. In less than a decade, Gordon's aggressive driving style and knack for publicity helped transform NASCAR. It went from being a niche sport in national punchline for being loved by only rednecks and gear heads into a sport so popular that its biggest star had been invited to host the top comedy show in America's most cosmopolitan city. Here he was, sharing a stage with comedy stars, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Tracy Morgan. To this day, he's the first and only race car driver to ever host the show. Today on past gas, how did a sensitive boy who grew up 20 miles from San Francisco, take over a rugged sport, which sprung from the illicit moonshine running business in the south. What made Jeff Gordon so good at such a young age? How would Jeff navigate the fever of fame? Did his popularity in the media ultimately overshadow his abilities as a race car driver? What the heck is a rainbow warrior? Live from donut studios in Inglewood, California. It's past guy. It's not because it's not about porch. Bernie, do you know? If you guys, hey guys, what's up? What's up? If you guys were on SNL, what would your during the intro what would your thing be? Like some people like cheers of drink, like some people are getting like a hot dog, Joe Webber. However, what's Joe doing? I'd be picking up pennies in the subway. Yeah. That's solid. Nolan Sykes. I think something food related. I'm eating maybe a hot dog. Maybe a maybe some falafel. Oh, that's cool. You're folding a slice of pizza, but you're folding it the wrong way. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And then you take a bite out of the middle. I would want to be standing at a bar and I'm wearing pleated khakis. Okay. And I wet my pants. That's perfect. Does it pan down or does it just? No, I think it's just like, it's just like a lockdown shot. Yeah. And you just see it. And it's longer than everyone else's. And 45 seconds long. Yeah. Yeah, the music kind of just slowly goes down the whole time as it's happening. And I'm giving a look just like, I don't care. Yeah, you still look really cool, but yeah. I'm like, I don't care, dude, yeah. And you just hear Daryl Hammond. And then I sneeze, and then it cuts away. That's really cool. Yeah. I don't remember this episode of SNL with him hosting. I should probably watch it after this. Great cast. I bet it's relatively funny. We got to get Daniel Rick on there. Yeah, Danny rakes a pretty affable guy. Daniel Ricciardo would kill. He just needs to win a little bit. Our producer Gavin just said that Avril Lavigne was the musical guest. And it was O three, so I would have been watching this one. That's Avril. Yeah, tell me, tell me what to do. Those are second biggest hit, probably. My girlfriend in high school looked like Avril Lavigne and I loved it. Oh, nice. All right, welcome back to past gas everybody. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes, joined as always, by my two co hosts. We got Joe Weber. Hey, Nolan, thanks for having me. That's great, Joe. James pumphrey. Yo. What's the word, you little birdie bird? Don't be a turn. Immaculate rhyme, thank you, James. Yeah, this week we are talking about the one and only Jeff Gordon, the rainbow warrior himself, mister 24, driving that beautiful DuPont car back in the 90s. This is did he change his number to 24 after he had won when he was 24? Is that where that comes from? I don't know. We'll see. He called it like Babe Ruth, the great bambino. That'd be sick. Yeah, that'd be really awesome. I'm not sure, Joe, we'll have to find out in this episode. How about that, deal? How about that? How about that? How about that? Find out an episode. How about that? Wonderful. Okay, let's get into it. Jeff Gordon was born August 4th, 1971 in Vallejo, California. That's where 6 flags is at up there. At the age of four, he got a BMX bike as a gift, an instantly it became his obsession. His stepfather, who worked in auto parts and was a huge racing fan, noticed and got an idea. If young Jeff Gordon liked racing on two wheels, then maybe he'd love racing on four wheels twice as much. He bought little Jeff, that's not how that works. Maybe. His step that bought little Jeff, a quarter midget race car, and as it turned out, his hunch was right. Gordon was a 5 year old hooked on speed..

"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.

"jeff gordon" Discussed on In The Draft Show - NASCAR Talk

"Towards becca after everyone came back from the break they were running a pretty well to start with him in priests but then just kinda fell off his back into the middle position so a nice showing especially on a track. That's not a superspeedway track. And then daniel suarez man third top ten of the year. He finished seventh in this one but his he's brought his average finish down three spots in the past couple of races his average finish on the year is almost nineteen so it's almost four spots here's average finishing the past five races fifteen point two so he. They're the team is steadily improving. And i did not look need to look into standing here and see where he and bubba are with their new teams. All right so he now is actually ahead of bubba by sixteen points so track houses twenty first and twenty three eleven twenty second so both those teams trying to hang in there trying to get inside the top twenty right now. Yeah and i mean you look at what happens with With sores in just the competence of this team l. They've actually made very big waves in this and it's really good to see because again. They're a team. That wasn't supposed to do much. And they're you know they're getting into it now. They're getting on it and they're even think about second team for next year so there's a lot of good things building with justin markson and everybody over there so it's kind of. It's it's a nice thing to see overall now and you know like i said on the last episode of the one before that i kind of given up on the idea that daniel suarez could be successful in the cup series and then this team man i mean they. They're like to the grindstone. They're they're working hard. That's great to see Because you know that twenty. Three eleven is going to get better Steadily over time. And if they get better over time as well that the means like two new teams coming in really mean it and seeing some success as opposed to just renting their cars out like you know we see rick ware and spire and all those guys do and they'll get to another new team which you don't even have one here. Do i not the announcement for tomorrow. for next year. Oh oh well. We'll talk about that in a moment. Yeah but i also wanna get back just just end with dinosaur as you gotta wonder how much immensely he's like. Well this could be my last chance. I have to do something here. Or else i screwed for the rest of my career and i gotta go back to regional areas down south so i think that he has a motivation to prove to himself that he can run up here After being kind of you know kneecapped. I would have to say new captain hamstrung in previous places. Yeah yeah because he said some big time rides and And then got unceremoniously booted for you know younger driver a driver that brought better sponsorship with them so yeah no i agree with you. That there's probably a little extra motivation there if not to save his career in the cup series At least to prove to those other teams that yeah. I can still. I can still race you to give me more of a chance. And then christopher bell finished ninth obviously as a win this year but it was his first top ten in eighth ray. Eight races He had a fourth back in richmond. So finally getting background. And that's like the whole stewart. Haas thing man. I mean they. They just have not been on the ball this year. Maybe they're going to step up and moving to do the reverse of hendricken step up in the playoffs and had a tough time This entire weekend too. I mean kyle. Busch fell back. After he was up to the front he fell back. A little climbed up to eleven christabel didn't have a great day but he was able to climb up the ninth Mardi true had a terrible day and just couldn't get the car dial dialed in him. And brad kozlowski were complaining about. They just couldn't get any rewrote or rear grip on the car. It just kept sliding out of than these couldn't figure out the track whatsoever and that was all weekend too because they had the practice and the qualifying and through. Three days nashville. a baffled. Both of them so You know gibbs racing has to do a little bit of inner thinking right now. Because i mean they didn't have a car in the top ten or a outside of rebel that you and you don't expect that right back hamlin to be up there. Expect kyle busch kinda be peaking in the top ten true x. Up there too but none of them that's That's a pretty pretty rough about especially kyle busch since he's on Xfinity racists here. And i think a second ago i accidentally said stewart haas when i meant to say joe gibbs racing job and during the two. No no no i. I was looking at christopher belen. And for some reason thinking thinking stewart haas. They're thinking. Joe gibson sang stewart haas. Because they're both kind of in the same boat right now. I mean really In the standings. All right so speaking of joe gibbs racing being in that same boat a stewart haas denny hamlin still leads. The points remember was like a month or so ago he had like one hundred nine point lead in the regular season standings and was going to take home the bonus point even though he hasn't won a race yet down to ten because of how awesome carson has been over the past couple of races so that hundred plus point lead me. It's hard. it's hard to make up one hundred points on somebody in the cup series in this current you know stage points climate and and damned if carson isn't there now and at the is going is probably gonna pass any and be the regular season champion and in all honesty. He should if you win four races and nobody else has one more than two. You should be the regular season champion. It doesn't make sense if you're not s cargo as nascar or you know. There's there's another piece of news that you left out to about nascar to. Oh we'll we'll talk about that as well this so i call second William byron chase elliott enjoy. Lagana ran out the rest of the top five again. Proving the chase elliott's a penalty means nothing because he's still taking fourth in the points in the interesting part though is still down. At the bottom michael mcdowell hanging in there at sixteenth christopher bell because he had finish it national he moves up the fourteenth overall. And this is where. It's interesting. Because kurt busch right now is seventeenth right. He's eight points behind michael mcdowell but that doesn't make a damn difference. Because if he passes mcdowell when mcdowell has a win and immediately would push. Kurt busch back out of the playoffs again. So he's gotta catch. Chris butcher instead. Who is fifteenth twenty. Four points ahead of. it's completely doable. But that just illustrates how weird this system can be at times. Where you're kurt busch. And you're thinking i got to get in the top sixteen. I'll have to get any points. I can get eight point so michael. Mcdonald's forget michael mcdowell but it doesn't mean anything those eight points. The only thing that matters is getting twenty-five soon get past. You know the guy who's ahead of michael mcdowell. Exactly that's that's what you have to be there. That focus needs to be at that point but it does reinforce that. Hey this in. The playoffs is mostly about winning. Because for kurt and everybody below him really the only way to guarantee they're going to get in is to win the damn race now. Yup you gotta you gotta get it gotta be in a minute to win it to be in there. It is so. Let's let's move on to this car news And i wonder if anyone happening right now. Yeah i wanna get to To what's going on right now. while And then we'll talk about jeff gordon. So what are you all right. So according to adam stern rash. Fenway has told partners. And it has a done deal with brad kozlowski to become a driver and co owner starting in twenty twenty two per sources though They have held off on announcing indifference to Team penske not clue about the amount of steak that will be in it In terms of equity but it looks like if they're telling their partners. It's a done deal and we got ourselves a done deal at a probably one of the worst kept secrets in the garage. My gosh was broken. May yeah is it ever No so here we have it. So you gotta figure six.

"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. Jeff gordon you mentioned it stein in the fox booth what he's still has a role andrew motorsports rick hendrix there. Chad can houses there. We asked outs blue being us out. Hey how're the post like you said you ever met chad kind of. There's a lot of leadership around him and a lot of confidence and a lot of talent and driving great equipment and i think that's what you're seeing right the combination of the three two minutes amount of confidence. And you know we said it on our preview show. You and i both cholera and watching. Because you take that much talent with that much motivation. The timing of hendrick motorsports and what they're doing communist chevrolet and where they are in the grand scheme of things. You got this recipe for success.

"Wasn't that great. I hope you enjoyed hearing from jeff. As much as i did and i found myself agreeing with so much of what he said. He has that wonderful blend of passion and experience and he makes a lot of very good points. There were many highlights for me. I loved his description of that williams test in two thousand and three his sheer enthusiasm for the fw twenty four and its capabilities is infectious. And you just know that he'd have been quick. How'd you made the switch to f one on a permanent basis with williams in two thousand and four or with the backfield nerve a few years earlier. What a pity we never got to witness that. I also found jeff's passion for qualifying interesting. He enjoys seeing the cars and drivers flat out. And on the limit for one lap when speed is the only thing that matters and drivers aren't worrying about strategy and other compromises in races. I think it's worth bearing in mind. What jeff has to say on this while f. One thinks about its race weekend format going forward jeff. It was an absolute pleasure to have you on the show. Many thanks for your time. And i hope to see what a grand prix soon. Oh and if you're listening toyoto don't forget that jeff would love to come and visit the factory in brackley one day before we move on. Please remember to send in any stories or chance meetings thoughts that you have on jeff. He oozes class doesn't he and remember. I'll read out the best ones next week. Send them to me at tom. Clarkson f. one or use the hashtag f. one beyond the grid which brings me onto what you sent in about roberto. Merino after last week showed and you've been busy. The virtual mailbag is bursting at the seams. His f. one struggles. His brief moment in the sun with benetton really struck a chord with a lot of people. Tony zeno got in touch with this. Simply astonishing podcast. He says i'd always admired roberto super sub days in india in the late ninety s. But it was just remarkable to hear his emotions when telling his f. one stories in such great detail. There are a lot of really powerful lines. Weren't there tony. You have to love. Roberto's passion and robert moss had this to say listening to your chat with papa marino. I laughed i cried. I was aghast. I was happy. I was sad. Just wow certainly one of your best. Thanks well thanks to you robert for that note and i was all of those things too. I remember being emotionally drained. By the time we'd finish the interview and how about this from julian. What an epic episode he says. I love roberto and his stories. He's one of the song heroes of formula one and he would have deserved some real success in good teams but qualifying andrea motor ship. Walks in. Monaco makes him a true legend of formula. One well jillian. It was indeed a heroic performance. And we're gonna leave it there. Although we got literally hundreds of messages about that episode with roberto. Thanks for your feedback. And even if. I haven't read out your message. Please know that i have read it. I read each and every one of them. Well that's it for this week. I hope you enjoyed hearing from jeff and remember to send in your thoughts and stories on him and as ever. I'll be back next week with another great guests from the world of formula one. So see you then beyond the greatest produced by f one in association with audio boom until next time.

"Some intense words. So i knew right then. Ricky nev- never young to be in. We never really got along but other than that. I would say that that never had that. Jimmy i mean in all those moments you know he and i would have a way to either have a beer after or you'll laugh about it or or you just go to the next race and just understand this is. This is what's happening now. He's the guy to be He's a great guy so makes it hard to dislike him and or to get even mad at him. We might have a few moments on the track. You'll want to beat them. Really bad in it did or didn't happen but that never transferred over to the relationship breaking down into You a situation like what you're talking about louis in nico. Who's the best drive. It you ever raced. Well be. I think you know because jimi was in the same equipment as me and in like i. You gotta understand your throughout my whole career. There was really. I don't think there's anybody that could be in to jimmy. Johnson came on. Yeah there might be a year mark. Martin was really strong or dale earnhardt. Senior dale jarrett some some guys new wrestles things like that. But tony stewart. When i just look at overall with a one of the most pure talent i would say tony stewart. You know he can get anything. He drove an indycar nascar. Sprint cars He also did the swap with lewis. Enif one car. is one of the Just credible talents jimmy. I i did a few things at him like the race of champions where he was my teammate and he could get out there and slide the car silence from his his Off road experience with some of the best of us up against some some amazing rally drivers and and we actually won that that event of the first year that we did it which i might still be the only time the americans won that event. So jimmy jimmy's amazing down. He really is certainly age in in a stock car east. Probably the best. I've ever raced in nascar. Okay can i talk to you a little bit about hendrick now. You haven't been to miss eighties. Toto if you're listening when you're next in the uk show you. You'll be welcome there. But can i ask you about hendrix in terms of that serial winners. You guys assyria winners. What is it about that team. And can you just tell us a little bit about the scale of it so that people listening to this might be able to compare it to formula one. I would say you're there A few teams with a nascar that are doing things at at at a very high level. you that you can maybe compared to form the one organization or or factory You know hendrick. We build all of our own engines with support from chevrolet We you build our own chassis. We basically do everything that a formula one team would do. Just under different rules and restrictions and budgets. You know we we. Don't we don't we. Don't spend as much but but within within nascar rick hendrick Is created really a dynasty in in an organization that is known to hire the best of the best in in do everything at high slot will say. The last three or four years have been rough. It's been it's been not what we're used to. but this year Hendrix really turned things around. We had the one two three four finish which Never been done. The history of hendrik in i think maybe only one or two times and And then just won the two hundred sixty ninth race of organizations history which just became the all time winning nece organization. Nascar so yeah. It's hard to describe what what our campus i call. We call it a campus. We have multiple buildings on on the campus. Where all four of our team sir are located in in everything that we do in rick hendrix a car nut so he he has a car collection that is very proud of probably one of the best correct collections in the world. And then you just this this nascar team back six hundred employees M you know from from marketing to pr sponsorship in in in the building no of the engines in the cars and then prepping these cars go to the race team to the racetrack. At thirty eight weeks out of the year. So it's It's a very special place. It's the only place ever jovan now. I get to be a part of it. The on the business ownership side how important is continuity particularly with the engineers in nascar because to go back to two mercedes and even though that we were talking about earlier there are some of the engineers there who have been there since the start of. biao and they're still Today they're in very senior positions now and they love it and they stay. Is that the same hendrick. it is. Yeah it's very slim. I mean you rip looks at his car business. The car owns car dealerships and transfers alive at over to race in Anytime To talk to him. It's all about the people. And when he finds good people young he he he wants to move them up an organization over time and in when you have experienced and talent and it also This laser mentioned continuity within the organization than there's been people that are there for for many years matter of fact. Rick has a tradition in his dealership that is brought over the injured motorsports. Where if you've worked at hendrick motorsports for twenty years or more than you get a watch. You get a special rolex. Watch that he hands and young every year. This probably eight to ten people that are getting knows watches so it just goes to show you you the loyalty. That people have gendered. Motorsports would a great place to work and and you know he. He loves people that have been there contributed for for.

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

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
