"Hello everybody and welcome back to because everybody enjoys roadrunners. We have a very special road. Runner dirt runner four wheels. Two wheels special guests here with us. Today he is a legend. His nickname is showtime for multiple reasons. Because he knows win To shine and he does just that he is a seven time supercross champion and just an all around good dude a father husband just a fun cat joys Tequila and loves playing Ping Pong and sting ball at the same time. We've had some good times in Utah. We have mutual friends and he is here with us and you know Showtime Mc and he is Jeremy McGrath. Jeremy is joining us from his home in San Diego California Jerry. What's up homeboy man? There he said nothing exactly so to give this kind of preface. We are under quarantine times. But let's get right to it. What are you doing to occupy your time? You're talking about might. This might take about an but he said if we can't let's condense it because they do have someplace to go which is socially responsible which is social distancing but seems like you been still keeping busy. You GotTa stay top your game well. It's funny you know I mean the. There's let's talk about the few things that have gotten better with this right. Traffic's gotten better air. Pollution gotten better than bonding with the family's gotten better I LIFE. I don't know sometimes I wanNA kill my kids. Well no I mean okay. We're we're a month into this thing now. Okay maybe now little bit or or you're like okay I'm GONNA go now or whatever but I'm I'm really enjoying hanging out with my kids. The the no school thing with the kids. It's kind of weird really so we've kind of had to become a little bit of like a home school teacher a little bit at least try to put them on some sort of schedule but You know it's terrible. It's terrible things going on and we're GONNA get through it for sure but at the same time I'm just super fortunate. I've been been able to ride my bicycle and get out and and No one's GonNa be twenty two. Let's go yeah and like we said you are get on your bicycle. You're even go into the open desert. You're getting out there. You're riding side by side. You're part of the team and have been for quite a few years in embassador for them. You've read you've read many different motorcycles. Your over your different years of competing and and both outdoor and supercross and all that and we'll get to that in a moment but that's what I really love about you when I first met you can block introduced us. We in Park City we for new years and I just love how how humble you were. Let's be quite honest when you started young. You didn't really have that humility. You're you're I mean. Have you always been humble guy because I understand that like you got it? You got to kind of you know you're showtime you have to bring like when you're when you're in competition you're all about winning and that's it and kind of go for it right. I mean I think I think it was. I was always been like a shy kid right so always in. Kinda you know. Listen I think there's a fine line between arrogance and You know I can get confidence right so areas contra quite a bit different The showtime thing. It's funny because when I was a junior like when I was fourteen years old now the novice ride motocross supercross track in the backyard. That had home bill. My Dad helped me build it and it was right behind the house and always had a somewhat of affects Jack and I always showing off on our parents so my dad's nickname showtime because I mean I was show that was Sean Hopper audience. Three my mom my dad and my sister and You know it's kind of it's kind of funny that way because it's like there was no one a show off for now you later when I became a professional and you know years later and and started doing that trying to the fan You know I just took out a way to express myself. I mean I'm I'm not allowed. Guy I don't you know I would say that I'm confident. I like to seal You know the power of being well trained and being ready to raise and Kinda like feeling like feeling over your your competitors but I have always been pretty humble but the two definitely shown up and I guess I just let my writing speak for myself instead of me and out of my mouth. There's a lot of people that what's funny is shyness. And your lack of maybe communication. When you were younger could be confused as arrogance or didn't like somebody right so there's a fine line between cockiness confidence and you having you know your parents as your number one fans that then translates into this into that and then you carry that into you know coming and becoming you know champion and multiple multiple nights like Dang target on your back and you got to become a little calloused right. I mean and then just growing up and being a father then then your heart starts to soften and you've been pretty open about it. Kim's journey with with cancer and and your guys openness. I think that really humbles you. You're not born immortal. You are mortal you and your family. I mean you guys you guys you. You've been blessed with this opportunity and Kim along your side your wife and now your girls and and all this opportunity so out humbles you real quick. Yeah you know it's funny you hard enough as Nazi so as an athlete. You're like okay You know I gotta be ready to beat someone's ass on the weekends and and everything I'm doing. Every day of the week is like all leading up to that Saturday night. Main event you know so there are things that you learn as an athlete that to. Kinda hard up you know and that that's just trying to have a competitor but certainly when I was young I didn't have it. I was super bowl lot of talent. I was pretty darn lazy to be honest and I'm dealing with that now apparent because one of my daughters was a lot like cheese. She loves sports. She's good at it but she's really she's really she's really good she's really lazy so I I just I'm like I'm like you're you're just like I was and it. It honestly took me until I was like twenty. Probably Twenty three years old to figure out like them. My Dad was actually right in saying like. Hey you need to work. You're off to you know because these other guys are working their butts off and I was like. Yeah Yeah I got it. I got it now as well. You know in order to become a mark champion out for motocross champion. Which me was way harder to supercross. I had to get my button year. Learn how to be an adult and learn how to train and do all these things that you know you hoppy responsible for and it took me talk like probably twenty three twenty four years old to really adjust my mind and put my mind in the right space to commit to that and So you're right as you get older you know parent Certainly with the situation with my wife. She's dealt with breast cancer and then through the Chemo therapy with that. She got the. She hadn't had a phone marrow transplant and So Yeah You you learn that light will one thing you learn. Life's not all about you right then as an athlete you get pretty good and you start winning. You feel like you're gonNA talk the world. Well you know the whole world can come on down in about one second so you learn that real quick which builds humility And then you know. It's often jeff little bit and as you know the you know you you never really knew you can love that much until you have a kid and so it's just a little death long away but I wouldn't change it. You know I think my my. My kids are great. My wife's cheese eight years now at the mirror chance over to super bowl on that and we just have a good life. We have great friends and trying to enjoy every day as you can because you know moral could be different and you see that with so many people right now obviously with the pandemic right now locking down and even before this Going on You really choose. You have your ranch. You have your friends. You have the McGrath Olympics that I always love to seeing you and your friends and you always tend to have a really good time been blessed US Opportunity Because of your laziness and then a potentially your hard work eventually paid off but for some of the for somebody that doesn't know you seventy seven time champion and cross. You're what the first ever rookie to win. The two fifty champion chip was that it. Exactly what year was that? Yeah so Before I got the two fifty class raised the one. Twenty five class is what it was called back then and I have two championships in supercross in that and then Moved up as a rookie to the two fifty class and I was the first one to ever win the title as a rookie. So my first year end. It's not big way. I want it and one. It was cool. Yeah six fifteen races I think back then and I won ten of them that your rookie year so You know look. It's one of the things that only happens really into dream. I I I'm I couldn't have imagined that it actually ever GonNa. You know that I was ever GonNa actually win one race let alone. The lotteries is let alone the championship. Let alone all this stuff. I mean I was just trying to figure out because they knew I knew through my career like I started racing motocross when I was late. when I was fourteen years old and normally got her with motoki serving a little and I was a beam raised. Cms for since out of the eight years old until August. Fourteen years old and kind of got burnt out. I mean we went all over the country out of team ride and my mom and I used to fly her races and I had a factory riding on but I don't know there's just a lot I guess it was just a lot for me again. I probably out pretty lazy so You know the the work ethic thing didn't kick in until later but man motocross and supercross. I was like I knew that if I could just get to the stadium floor if I could just get there with the jumps were. I knew that I can shine and I was right. I got there and it didn't take me long to start getting beaten these guys and then Then just man after that. Just kind of them have this. I'm no career sea world to world supercross championships. Seven super titles. One twenty five. How does one out? There Mar tidal almost one in the second one but now life just jumped up at me and got me because I got a little too cocky and I was winning a lot of racism and I tried to jump this big obstacle on one of the race track that I shouldn't try to jump in practice and I came so short. It just tweak my ankle and everything and then So I I end strode on through the rest of that year I we. I was tired with image for the last. The last night was the last rays last year. We're tied on the sideline in my ankle was still really bad jacked up and I just. It was one of my favorite tracks and I was like now gonNa work and and You know he had. He had the right of life on that day. So I ended up your in series but anyway it's been a incredible career and then and then shoot when I stopped racing by Started racing off road and I raised short-course opera for a lot of years and then finally won the championship on In in the protocol that What eighteen thousand eight two thousand eighteen looks foil short protein champion and after? I did that. I was like eight years to get that championship for offroad and I was like. I'm good that's it. I'm good I'm good and the girl who gets at the right as now so was like you not been more time with and let them do the deal so here we are today just cruise and doing a lot of cool stuff accounts Hosting that show that we that is on supercross. That programming for supercross told the supercross. It's like a three minute thing and we go to these different type of You know like in Layman's term on how to write a section or was it like to ride your heart races higher or different things that relate to supercross us. That's been really fun For Kellyanne you're not right now but It's just it's been a great man. And then the introduction of the new California which you mentioned earlier we've been going out Places like superstition and truncated in to and I've been taking the girl down in the New South side side. It's just been really really. Oh I did Kim Hammer this year to a couple months back when Kelly I came out with I we built up the car and competing King Harrison Man. That was that was an dance. I can't wait to get back that that was so cool. Yeah that's that's rates are. Yeah Yeah how? How did you finish you end up hundred forty? Tv's and I finished twenty nine? But I started started fifty seconds. I Call By fiftieth or whatever to non turbo naturally aspirated and then I got all the way in at one hundred twenty Mile Mark I was up seven and then I I I got stopped up on Iraq had to take a line. I didn't WanNa take shop like a six foot ledge almost crash it and I had got it and pull the front down and then I smashed into a rock broke the front bendel and so I had to limp along and then I got through this really really tough catching chocolates under and then And then the front wheel basically broke off so we were sitting there for about. I was in seventy two hours working on it and then I got in and finish the race finish twenty nine and there was only thirty nine finished so it was. It was a cool. I'm pumped shot at the next jump. So that's I mean yeah you really need to bring. I always talk about it when I talk about like von getting junior racing. Ultra four and you really need to bring like your leatherman tool that has the knife has. The fork has a toothpick. You know has the big knife has a serrated knife you need to bring all of that metaphorically in your vehicle and your mind right. I mean a lot of it's mental and you see Lauren Healy. Ckc Curry you see the guys that have done it before. And they're still you know struggling because I it's it's hard work. Man That that King Hammer specifically hammer town as an event now it's growing ultra four racing is just a really unique adaptation of an evolution of motor sports. And that kind of leads me to my next question is equipment. Equipment is is everything in two wheel four wheel. Are you envious now watching? And you're you know you're either down the dirt or or even watching the girls race your daughter's race from yesteryear when you're racing even. Let's talk about Ricky Johnson. Who is your Ido who I who I always. I always say I wanNA be Ricky Johnson. When I grow up I love that dude I just always a great glow and and hey happy he's He's cured a Cova Man. He he endured ovid and he had the corona virus and he took care of himself quarantined and happy to hear that ricky as well but equipment just evolution of it. How envious is your back in now just recently. You had your knee surgery in October. I saw you riding the other day. But how envious of modern technology are you? Well it's kind of a double edged sword right because the new equipment is so awesome but at the same time. Do I really like. It's weird for me to think about. Do I WANNA go that fast? Feed the kids are writing the speed. They're writing today and that the the you know the way they come off that bike. It's when it shouldn't fan is incredible. These guys these guys were You know there's so much more of an athlete. I think than we were in in the nineties. You know we were still able to be an athlete. You know these serious be corporate enough to make a living but then also be able to enjoy my fun time too and which is a lot of things that the young athletes can't do these days because there obviously there and there's a camera on all time with the Social Media. Things changed everything you know. So that the world of kind of growing up and figuring it out without making. We're making mistakes Kinda over you. Have you have to mind your PS and QS today and You know I would say these athletes are just much more of an athlete than than I ever was probably The new equipment incredible. I love read my new bike riding to surf for anything. I'd love to strokes and that's what I came up on and I think it teaches you a lot about the technical aspects of how to ride. Four strokes are awesome and they make things a little easier So you know every you know the finite the athlete you still got to ride the thing like I never ride the bike like they do these days but the you know the the. There's a lot of differences between the two shokhin the for being an athlete. In in this era different. Yeah the the variable. I mean you're working for you guys are working for it and I think that's where you know listening to listen to because I've done some research on you and and I've known you for a while but understanding you applying your bmx flow where you're kind of talk about. Your Lazy. I've never heard you say this. But now you're like okay. I'm lazy. I need to get to that stadium. Four get to that. You know that the double double right and you're kind of like well now. I don't have to pedal now now motorbikes so I can just flow properly and I'm GONNA take that. Bmx knowledge and apply to something motorized. All I have to do is rip it in grip it whisky throttle that thing and clear the four and then I got the win. That was exactly my thing as a kid. I was like open. Open up a twinkie. Yeah it was called. It's called a twinkie dead instead of pedal but have to do this and I can jump. Vat Oh I'm GONNA smoke pool so it was a you know it's the perfect ladyman way of thinking you know it takes me a long time figuring how being so and You know put the work in so yeah get supercross. It was a you know to see guys like John and those guys. Were you know that was an incredible era for us to be able to see super crossing too old to join them like that and just ride with my heroes and then actually become one of the heroes? It's way more than I ever imagined. So it's been it's been a motorcycle is created a lot of great opportunity for me at school. Yeah you and your family and and and your wife and get like I said I love just the whole DNA. In and the upbringing. I grew up in San Diego and hearing your name. And it's your oh McGrath. It's kind of like just saying. Oh what are you an Andretti? It's it's it's synonymous your. Your name is synonymous with two wheel and dirt and all that speaking of being an adult we gotta we gotTa talk about libations because I know you enjoy them so and I know you love your Tequila so I have I poured myself and you and you might be going right mountain bikes later. So you don't have to drink with me but I mean it is rocket fuel but I I'm do I'm GonNa do it because I got the nineteen forty Tuesday. Okay go go get. I'll talk. You WanNa go get some you can. I'M GONNA crank. Yeah go ahead to the class. A zule which had this actually with you at the blockhouse in in Park City and you love Tequila but the class is super and this is the this is if you can't see the bottom if you're not watching this video you're listening to. It's a beautiful white ceramic bottle with the chrome top and I was talking with Ken about this. It's a bit phallic but an Ulta Keila bottles phallic and tall like that. Do you know why they're just shy. Nervous it's the it's a weird flex but it's okay now stand right. That's what I'm saying. I have some in the freezer to but I think we'll ship on with you. And is that is that is that the REP Asada us? Donald Forty two. That's a Banger. That such tipper here. Yeah and you go you go you like it. Frees cheers brother cheers. Thanks coming on here. This is a beer. Because do you. Do you understand my metaphor. The whole because everybody enjoys roadrunners in can really like the comment that I just called the podcast. Beer with jared deandre. It's an acronym. Do you understand the concept of being a road runner not literally the animal not literally a road runner. 'cause I don't know if you see my physicality you have. I'm not a runner by any means but do you understand the whole metaphor either. By the way again we're talking. Defaulted back to the lazy concept of Look Everything. I own his motorise. That's just that's just it right? Yeah I love roadrunners by the way yeah very cool are right and a cornell. Right playing golf. They kills snakes. So they're Kinda you know. Kill Kill the people that are that are you. Don't need right right. So it's it's kind of good just I wanted to call roadrunners because it's metaphor for traveling and and you've done a lot of traveling in your time but but then also apply not to you know traveling animal all those things. That's why I kind of want to do that. And then I was like. Oh let's call it because everybody enjoys roadrunners beer with Jerry deandre but we call it Tequila Agenda. Today speaking of traveling. Where is the craziest place that your career has taken you or even by choice? What's what's kind of a unique place because your your. Your career is taking a lot of different places. Yeah you know what it's with. The super across America works the schedule starts in January and then supercross endon may bag typically and then they have the motocross series which starts right after that and then ends up Labor Day weekend which is September And then those those three months that we have up typically three or four whatever. I think it's three three months October. November December so between October November and sometimes December but not really guys You get invited to these supercross races. These one off races throughout the world. I mean they can be wherever I've traveled I mean Scott. Let's travel go to races so so I didn't really get to travel too much by choice in Kinda pick where I wanted to go but basically by by manipulation. They're like you. You need to come look nice job so it's trying to go race make inside money. Really those side games during those months and then There were different times like when I would bring Kim with me and we would make a rate trip into a vacation trip at the same time So I mean I think our favorite spot has been Australia. I mean Australia. It's been fun and we went for. We've been down there several different times for different races in and saying two weeks at a time on the Gold Coast and then travelling around Pretty Australia pretty insane country pretty awesome. And of course you know when you can speak the language and make things in Galati either But they Italy a bunch of times which love Italy. We travelled all the whole. You know the whole be really Chain with the kids was off. We've been done that. And then you know Francis is so pretty far I would like to go to France in the summer because typically when we traveled to France we'd always go in November. That's when the big races parents supercop Jersey or whatever But I think I haven't went to any. I don't have to any like really unusual box box. I always Kinda see like can and send me. I don't know if you've been Dubai or anyone that my our might be kind of cool. I always thought that never been down there. I've been to Italy Spain Australia. You've been to Asia you rent. You've written for European toppings such as KTM and also in supercross career you wrote for. Yeah Austria I mean. That's that's exotic place Japan. So yeah I was talking with a coal. Sealy was on this podcast before and talk with him. He's just like jd freak. He just loves he's been to Japan with Honda and then he wants to go back. So have you been doing? It ended a car drifting like like like the way that the the Japanese culture is. What the drifting car and all the stuff that es all into that so I could see him. Want to be of Japan's amazing. I've been over there several times in the just the people are just so nice and the culture it's so so cool love and So going back to your history and stuff. There's if you haven't followed Jeremy on on Instagram. Definitely encourage it. He's got this. Just awesome catalog or hoarding of of sentimental items to his dad. His family and him and we're talking about before we came on here. Hopefully his daughters appreciate. I know Kim. His wife does but it's Mcgrath's attic in and I just for instance you pulled out that truly helmet bag or that gear bag kind of a pit bag and it had all these visors from back in the day as minuscule as that. Some collector could just drool all over this one of one or one of five usually probably get a few helmets painted up by Troy. Four one to yeah okay so one of two perfect just that one visor. Some collectors GonNa Drool over that. I mean those those dots when Troy was using those those lime Green Dots. The little brighter. You know those little things I mean. Even those visors. Yeah the bubble's thank you. You have just a bevy of those leather jackets. I think I I mean you gotta be yourself for for Halloween at some point and just wear like the Gaudi EST craziest of era. Jeremy McGrath with like the Guy. Fieri bleached kit. I liked your facebook. The facebook Lincoln tender tender profile. That was that was that was full on the part of the classic full ninety. Three ninety. I you know if you I don't know if you've ever went to a super this but I had wild idea when I had my team back in the ninety eight ninety nine I think going ninety nine the Mahayana Yonaha team and I I had a I had. You're you're speaking of being myself charleen. Different Yeah bigheaded costume him. And then I put them in my gear. This I hired this kid and then Big boots gloves big head and just like kind of like a costume body and I had him walking. Just walking around the pitch. You know taking pictures with kids and everything and like I just thought I'd like Disneyland. Like how Mickey Mouse runs around or Donald Duck and they grow around and take pictures and I was like. We're doing that because it's going to be cool because it's going to be like German grab it would ease some of the pressure off of me if I had the cartoon guy out there this walking around because then people would you know. I mean the supercross gets pretty crowded and you're trying to raise busy so I thought what better way to have fun with the kids and and I still got that confidence I need to have. I need it but one of my daughters than it. Actually there was. Talk about duplicating yourself. I can't be two places at one time you did that because is how many times did how many times did. Mc to get get jumped because everybody wants to beat up you know but they have their. H- have their handlers or wrangles off the side. Can You recount any times? I'm not I I can't really recount. I don't remember him running back on Aga- my little kids or something like that. Luckily luckily everyone like most everyone like me attractive if I was one of those guys. That wasn't well. Maybe might get a bucket or if that cost him guy was the guy beating. Mcgrath me then people might I my. It was pretty cool. I'm an active bus. That thing out. I got a A little video. Think plan that I'M GONNA use it before long. That'd be great speaking speaking of her. Who is your biggest rivalry back in the day? You talked about Amazon coming down to those those labs. You weren't one hundred percent and we can always always blame it on an injury. I'm joking but Who was who was who was. Who was the biggest rivalry in your in your career because as you were kind of because you and Carmichael overlapped a little bit. Which because you're kind of one of the greatest of All. You're not the go car. Michael's known as the quote UNQUOTE. But you're one of the best of all time and the king right you they call you the king. And he's the go. Yeah he he. He went with that acronym to sort of come up with the nickname. Yeah I think so but you can't really go if you're not GONNA go. Hey got fired I ricky knight grown up together to forget buddy. Yeah well I talk about. Yeah I we talk about this with other racers is that that kind of you know Camaraderie. You see in Formula One especially now because you have this. Arti ingrained innate. Even though their teammates they're still going against each other and that's what happened to you and yet yeah. Luckily for me Ricky didn't come into later in my career right. He's so we only overlap a little bit probably three seasons and I and I and I covered him for the first couple but then when he finally got me That year in supercross it was that was full changing the guard. So I mean I knew coming here. Ricky's bat and there's no doubt he's definitely the best there ever was because ensure numbers the guy how many. I have eighty nine. I think I've eighty nine or something like that. Total victories and has a hundred forty or something. Like that right. Ricky sure I I definitely got him. Supercross numbers but You know I always enjoyed watching. Ricky is phenomenal writer just Being able to let loose like he does and and just hanging out there like that presence. Because I was never that got I was always Kinda Guy. They had to stay within my limits. Luckily my limits were high enough where I could rive honey fat but I had to always be controlling. I was always impressed by cameras. He just hanging out there and ride chalk and pull it off and he was good at that so you know he really wasn't considered a rival me with her friends. Media made it out to be a little bit more than it was at the end there but you know as an athlete when it's time to change the guard. You're feeling to hurt you. Know it's like look how demand for a long period of time and now now it's like a Mac many more of this kind of stuff so you know but if anyone had to do it he deserved it. He's a great guy I would say my main was was Jeff. Emig WE You we it out a lot and and really really wasn't I don't feel like I mean honestly you know we're friends now to or not but I don't really feel like it was one of those things where We were June rivals on the outermost across. We're pretty he was better than me for awhile me. That was the part where the lazy part talking about while to figure out how to be a real athlete and Once I did that I you know we started really having some good battles and ended up his game to for outdoor across and he was even better than that me better than me that while I'm supercross we didn't really. We didn't rival that much. I mean early nineties. I had them covered by quite a lot. it was. Just you know certain. Instances that really just didn't didn't sit well with me. He was use different kind of guy. He's a lot more arrogant to me. And I'm not really sure I I don't. I'm not a fan of people that act like that because I don't act like that I just don't think is right. I mean we're we're riding their bikes all to be out of here and the Akron like that weird to me so You know for a few years there. It was just. It was just ten of the person he just wasn't wasn't that cool and then then when you did right around riding at a kid was really. Barbie. He was He was a guy that you know. If you next he would cut a over on takeoff of jump or like I mean was kind of raw and like the etiquette was like I was like Holy Shit Man. This guy's trying to kill me you know and and I'm just starting to go by you like I'm not trying to mess with anyone. I was just it was. It was always me against the track against track. Meet against another guy. I mean I'm writing a check. I don't really care if anyone out there right. I'm doing my own deal but somehow you know and and you know certain guys just maybe they just feel like I gotta I gotTa get my kid. I got your team. I gotTa do something phone down. I gotTa do something. And and he was definitely a guy so we definitely got into a bunch of time. Got a fistfight at one time after more risk and the mechanic had a break. And then you know. Just certain instances along the way that it was just you know and and he would probably say at this point they were pretty lame but You know look I wouldn't have been as good as I was if I didn't have someone who is battling with me. I mean if it was just easy every time people just like Oh yeah no competition which is what they're saying out the numbers that I have people like. Oh he ever so easy back then yeah eating and I was like easy. It was the same today like still everyone's saying like every time to cross others. Eight guys can win this well. I wonder as most the time. But you know this crediting the rest of the field completely because there was no competition. I mean I should have myself. So it's it's funny. How it all works but sport in general how it works you know and Schumacher was winning all those races. They were like. Oh that's easy on your well. I mean all the other guys were amazing too. It's just even better so You know like sort of counting it now or whatever and But anyways you know. I mean rival rivalry why he sticks out the most and it's mostly because we didn't get along at times and five times or whatever you know I was. I'm sure you're getting him and human. They're getting me. So this is what a lot of great writers but he was the one that stands out right and it's two different schools of thought. And you're you're considering irresponsible. He's considering aggressive to get the win. And that kind of goes in the next question of Modern Day supercross when you watch it and I've kind of spotty here and there and but most recently there's been a couple of races that French. Have you been watching lately? The the French cat that just he got a lot of flack for coming in and diving of bouncing. Yeah he see he caught a lot of flack for that. And I think you know it's give and take and I mean these guys are bringing these fricken guns to a knife fight and and like you said here comes here comes here comes you and jeff back in the day in here comes jeff coming across you when you're going for a jump. They're bouncing each other off like backboards. Where does your mind go? Are you dislike? What like are you freaking out? Because we've seen Degan chime in we've seen Kerry chime in a lot of these dudes that are obviously armchair experts. But here's here's you. Where's your mind at yeah? I'm all as a fan. I'm all for me out there. I don't I don't necessarily. I would necessarily say that I didn't I don't like that but you know I mean that one specific grass where it's went underneath craig a little little heavy but you know. He took a lot of ship for being just for being French. You know people are like we don't want a French guy coming over here. You know you know beating guy and then taking them out at the same time so it's kind of You know there. There's a there's a there's a line I mean there's this alliance like there isn't any kind of racing you can rub and you can do all these things but the minute you take a guy out then it. You've crossed the line and They they really don't like it. The the organization doesn't like it and the other thing is they they hate retaliation right so you get mailed and then you go mail from him back while you're the guy that's the trouble. I don't necessarily agree with that. I think if someone else you kind of open season right it's let's play. Let's play if you're man and then you're gonNA be taken out like go back battle on the track and it's unfortunate. They didn't they. Don't let that happen so I don't know we had a lot of identity. I mean as with another guy that I raised with. You know we have battles but he took me out a few times and I had to get get me with it and take him out and and you know you have to stand your ground if you don't stand your ground and you're just GonNa get abused out there who gets abused. I mean look at Cole ceiling for one he. He was a guy who got abused by Jason Anderson. A lot of time and this would not pick up themselves. So certain instances You know a certain instances they need you needed to take care of yourself. There's no Chair but you yeah and then and look at you know when Cole goes into former I call them an X. supercross racer and retired. He says I'm not retired. I'm not retired. He's retired from Super Cross but he's a former supercross racer such as yourself. You know it's like you don't call somebody ex-marine therefore marine respectively so user former supercross racers and and now it seems like he's having a lot of fun. I I love Kohl's doing and he's kind of a fan of the two stroke taken that bike to straight rhythm that that event and doing things his way kind of is post. Post supercross celebration. What other events are you kind of looking to do? You're doing a lot of stuff with the girls. You're going out in the desert. You have great partners Kawasaki of Armagh. Obviously you're still with monster for for quite some time What other projects are you looking forward to do? Or what should people expect from you in coming years? I think You know clearly they offer thing and become really so in the fall apart in the division side of things I still pro. I feel my shop I work closely with Max. Max is a great partner my also so with Max's We were going to do truck stuff. I'M GONNA raise crandon probably this year if we get back to doing any event Want to try and raise crandon race that last year. Which is the big opera racist in the in the fall Labor Day weekend? I think what a great event I WANNA we're talking about Clinton and Kawasaki the character one thousand Vegas Reno car together. Maybe raise them desert and that one you know I wanNA raise that one but I think maybe two years from now I WANNA put my girls in that race to and maybe they can drive with each other or something like that. What to be really cool So getting them involved more on the side by side of course Earlier we talked about my knee. I had a knee replacement in October. And it's been six months now and it's actually feeling pretty good. I went to ride motocross the other day and I might actually go riding this again and the Niko pretty good. So precise on that Doing a lot of stuff on my bike recount sake and So you know now. It's kind of all about fun all about doing things for colleen and Max it's really in monitor and then we have to supplement brand. We're building Arm So Just trying to you know. Get my feet wet and a lot of different things and stay heavily involved in the industry. Which is the motor industry and As far as my kid. Yeah just being a rat dad and kind of nurturing them what we're going to leave we're going to leave you here in a little bit but all right so you're jumping into your car. You're you're about to ride up and Just kind of we're talking about this. You'RE GONNA go ride with Troy. You're going to you know. Drop a names. They're truly iconic in in motorsports world now but go ride mountain bikes with him and against social distancing. But what's the first song playlist? Boom you turn your plug your phone and just plays. I know automatically plays usually but Bluetooth when he finally said it in. What are you gonNA play? What are you listening to? I don't think I like Lincoln Park Lot if my like my phone and be. It's either Lincoln Park or notorious. B I g okay stuff man just a little. I like nineties hip hop a lot into that makes I mean little little time capsule. They're going to block everything. But and your wife makes you even cooler about that though is when I give my kids My phone or they're on McKay play music. They put big pretty cool. That's pretty and I like ninety to wrap so I'm like all right right. Yeah they don't even like you like I taught him. Well you're like I thought well. And what your favorites Akilah? Don't I'm kidding you're asking the girls? I'm saying you're asking the girls. What's what what would you daddy daddy and then like what's what's kind of your dream by because I know like people you know like you know when you're younger you wanted this bike. You wanted that setup and now here you are. You're older you own your dream bike or do you have a bike in your mind that you'd like to build that these people listening they know who you are. They're like Oh yeah. That was like the jam. I wanted that to stroke or even that one twenty five that cub that you know I mean. Do you own a bike or do you have on your bill. I think as you get older that that mark moves right so that target moves so okay I when you know when I was you know when i Parker Age or my daughter ruins age fourteen. I mean all I can think of like I wanNA have a you. Know two fifty like Ricky Johnson. Whatever and and then you you get there and you have that for years and years and then as you get older like okay cool I. I have all the cool motocross like now. What would I want You know then then you WanNa go like the ultimate like trail bike right right now. These days it's been around winner a want. A motocross bike played on it then. I can ride the streets. Connect all the dirt sections and all so You know there's no perfect bike. I don't think there's a perfect bike for a certain situation. But there's no one bite they can cover it all so I mean I love riding. Check days it street on track on strike So we do that a couch and then I have an adventure by advocates are six fifty. That I've Been Ryan that off road on Road then. My cats were fifty. And then you know we have you WANNA go play with the kids get on the the Celtics one ten with the class without a class. I mean that's a cool thing. There's a lot of right you know. Then you know we're tires one. You want the nabis on to promoter tires on enduro tires. There's just all kinds of choices so That's the beauty motors. There's so much so many options and now even in the truck world. You even have a rendering of a cyber truck on your instagram account. So you're you're you're campaigning. Twenty Twenty One. Twenty twenty one. The McGrath Showtime Cyber Truck Co. lab with Elon. Musk right is that what's happening. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah just imagining the the. I'm imagining a exit speed. You get off that thing with technical input input you know right now and the ludicrous button. Can you imagine that opera track? I think need spiked maxes. I don't know if there's enough knobs on that because you'd get that instantaneous. Torque you just lied them up and wouldn't get the grip so but you could. You could control it and do trash control. And that's just a whole game changer. But Yeah I mean. There's there's there's so much there's so much great history that you have and and because you're so young you did this all in twenty five years. It's so amazing.

A lot of people are sitting at home right now but You may be sitting at home. But you've been busier than most During during this quarantine man you're doing a whole hell of a lot of driving buddy. Yeah it's been it's been fun. It's crazy because I was. I've been involved with Iranian kind of since they started way back in the day and Who would have thought what you know with? All this pandemic going on it would turn into what is turned into with really opening. Everybody's is but I mean you know as well as I do. It's been fun every time they've added a a new car or race car to Iranian like The opera trucks were just we. We couldn't believe it when we heard that they were thinking about it. And then same of the sprint cars winged sprint cars in the midgets. Same thing and I got to be part of that Beta team. So it's been fun to watch it progress but It's really kept US busy. You know I flew home from that race got cancelled in Florida. And I knew right away what I'd be dealing if we're GONNA be stuck at home so it was out in the garage simulator on On my operation right away and that'd be an so. Let's go back to that. I mean you guys were there. You're ready to go and I know indycar was there. And what Saint Pete and they kind of pulled the plug on that You know right right about the same time divers kind of there and they just kind of rebooted everything. Here's a question for you. I mean INDYCAR. I don't WanNa say fortunate. 'cause nobody's fortunate in this but they hadn't started their season yet right they were. They were there at their their first event. But I look at a guy like you. You guys got a couple of rounds under your belt. You went there and and you know you were in Phoenix. You're in Pomona. And then it's like a big pause. How does that affect you? Because you guys were just getting going kind of starting to get a group of things. Things are starting to Mesh long off season. You know and then all of a sudden boo pump the brakes. Let's pause for a few months. We'll go back in June. You know I mean how does that work. I mean party you wish Oh man. I wish we wouldn't have had those two races or you feel like it was. It may have been good just to kind of blow the rust off and you'll be ready to go back racing in June. I think it was good. I mean it was nice to To kind of get our star we unfortunately are NAPA team. We had the trailer fire on the way to the West Coast. ended up. Burn up a lot of our stuff and damaging a couple of bodies and cars so that was the only way to preseason testing so my teammates got to do the preseason testing. I went over there and had no race car to drive so I did some media stuff but I was Kinda Jones into get behind the wheel watching everybody else. make runs. It's weird man are season especially with our countdown the championship. When that last six races happens between September and November? It seems like it ages you ten years in that three months. It's crazy There's so much pressure and so much going on that when the season's over and the day after the Banquet Hollywood. You just don't want to see anything you don't WanNa be at a racetrack. You're so burned out from the stress. That's involved you just WanNa chill and be away from a race car for a while so you get through the holidays and then you're ready to get back in it when it comes time to get ready for Pomona So it was weird to go to Pomona go to Phoenix and then being a law like this. It seems like it's sort of an extended offseason but we're all came points and we did well first couple considering but my guys needed a break to get back to indy and and sort of go through all the burned up stuff from the fire and and get our equipment ready but our guys have the car ready. It's in the trailer and ready to go to Gainesville. If we're allowed to go racing in June well you know if we're allowed to go racing. I'm looking at things going. Gainesville gator Nats June. It's going to be a warm one ron. Yeah there's there's a few that they moved around the schedule it is going to be definitely warmer situations. But I you know for me Ron Taylor. He's an old school crew chief and I love those demanding kind of conditions where we see the heat and humidity the the track temperatures that are one hundred thirty degrees plus because it really Cool conditions you know. Unlike a lot of them I guess for us drag racing when it's cool out and attract cool and the weather's nice and Nice and brisk it these motors they'll make eleven thousand plus horsepower. And it's sort of it It evens everybody out like anybody can go up there and throw all the power at it and it's probably gonNA stick and make a run whereas you get these conditions where it's so hot and humid and tricky. It really takes a really good crew chief to set the car up and it takes a really good driver to do what he's gotTa do to make. Sure the cargoes to the finish line so it's really a team effort and I. I love that kind of thing. I love the summer months when we're grinding out these hot temperatures and tricky race track and And because at the end of the day Jim you're standing in the winter stroke on and you felt like you really really earned it like you. You really came together as a team to get past these. You know not just beat another good teams you got past these adverse conditions and It's more gratifying. And you know it really blew my mind and I have been around in each area for a while and spend a lot of time in the in the pits and stuff like that and I was out there phoenix in I went with Steve Torrence in their Holler and they started kind of really opening. Open the books and kind of showing me let's technology and weights and just these little nuances. I mean things that passer bys wouldn't even notice and I mean it makes a huge difference for you guys in funny car and top fuel and I guess like you know I think people here crew chief and they think Nascar and it's a guy that stands in the box and call some shots and things like that but when you really dive into Nhra. I think a lot of people take this three hundred plus miles an hour for granted but I got to see some stuff. That is a guy that I would say knows the sport pretty well. It really blew my mind. I mean just how fine tune your crews are with every last little adjustment on these cars to get them to go that fast and I mean one. Slight adjustment can mean a massive amount of time on the track. Yeah if if normal fan really matter if they realize how many things have to go right for that car to even go down the track just to make a a decent run not counting a run. That's that's number one qualifier or or quickest to the round. It's everything's got to be so perfect but you back up and and you've got to look at the crew guys got eight crew guys that work on these things. They've all got a job. They've got to put this thing together. Flawlessly. I mean it's gotta be perfect for the crew. Chief has a chance to set that car up otherwise he he couldn't set the car up to do what he wanted to do. And then you take it another step and the driver unlike you know and and I think you and I've talked about this drag races different in in a lot of ways but the biggest part is when I do these other races In other race cars one thing about drag racing as we don't we can't make make up a bad lap or or we can't we don't have the we don't have the privilege of saying man. I messed up that one. I'M GONNA make another lap and I'm GonNa make up for you. Go out there and you have three point. Eight seconds to make a decision in the car to either do something right or wrong. It doesn't matter but you don't have the luxury of saying. Oh I didn't make the right choice but the next lap I'll do better and that's kind of A. It's a tough thing. It's it's tough to swallow when you don't make the right decision. Whatever it might be peddled Takhar. Catch it smoke in the tires. Don't keep it in the groove little things like that that really it'll haunt you and And you really gotta learn to let it go because it it's so Got It's so important to go up there and make the right choice and unfortunately we make the right choice and then you gotta live with it. So that's the tough part about drag racing. Everything's got to be so perfect like you said mechanically and the drivers gotta go up there and basically the team gives you the car and they say all right here you go is set up as good as we could set it up. Do not mess it up. And that's sort of the the difference. I think than than most motorsports thing that I've found really really interesting about NHRA drivers and You Know I. I don't think that you guys get the credit you deserve. As far as you're driving skills I think a lot of people outsiders looking in thank you just point and shoot and you know what I mean and and you're just pushing the gas but I I've seen videos of in-car and how much driving you're actually doing but I've been fortunate enough to to watch what you do in in other racing. I racing but in real life and I've had Anton Steve in my razor out with me. I've been raised riding with Leeann Pruitt and I gotTa tell you on I mean. Nhra drivers by-in-large everything. I've seen I mean you guys have some legit racecar driving skills. I mean the that extends far past what you would you know what you would think in. Nhra driver would have what it? What are you credit that too? Well for me You know you look at like the guy that I think the most talented driver for sure. Talented racecar driver. Nhra would be Doug Coletta. And I watched him as a kid and you midgets and really anything. He jumped and he was phenomenal with car. Control Being the letter family. He's always been drag racing but whenever we've gone off a raised third stuff. He is unbelievable still to this day. But you look it and try and look at Steve and for me personally. I always had this love for whatever it might be. Motorsports comes from my dad. He he he worked CANAM car. When I was a kid he He helped build sprint car. Engines for guys that lived in our area and so besides drag racing. I would tag along with my dad and I always loved all this different race in that he would go help people with so. I always felt like grown up racing. Go karts and things like that that I I I was lucky enough that I got successful drag rates and I was able to be asked to go do these other races and And I always tell my boss Don Schumacher. I really truly and I used to tell Don prudhomme when he was my boss. And and that really helped me in my car when I would go race a midget or a sprint car or whatever. It might be because of the car. Control his car control no matter what you're in but when you smoke the tires and you have a pedal fast in Nhra car and you're trying to hook up eleven thousand horsepower that experience you get in the seat of a midget or sprint car or off road truck. Whatever it might be. It's the same thing driving by the seat of your pants. It's just more horsepower in a funny car and it's less room to do it but I feel like it's always helped me and we'll be back with more with Ron capps right after this short.

Welcome back to the general tire down and dirty radio powered by Polaris Razor. Jim beaver here along with the injury. Legend WRONG CAPS narrow. We've been talking about erasing. We'll get back to that. 'cause we got a lot to talk about but I want to switch gears here a minute. I want to talk a little bit about all this downtime. A lot of these a lot of drivers whether it be you know NASCAR indycar whatever you know a lot of them. Are you know you don't want to say self funded but they come from wealthier families things like that? I mean you're guy that's you know very much you know you've had to work your tail off to get everything you've had and where you're at you know. Sponsors have been a big part of that. I mean I look at some of the other other people are doing and they're getting really creative. How was I racing and and really helped you out because I mean obviously I know Alex Rossier Napa teammate. He's he's very active in erasing right. Now you are but you know. How's this been for you? Because a lot of people are sitting there on their hands for four six weeks and sponsors sitting there kind twiddling their thumbs. Also and you're out there active. I mean you're doing stuff or NAPA you're racing. You'RE YOU'RE OUT IN PUBLIC. I you know you'RE ON TV. You're you're live streaming things like that. I mean how is this? Man is an outlet for you to help you get that return on investment for your sponsors. You know a Lotta people aren't able to deliver that For me it was just You know the flight home from Gainesville when they canceled it right away. I was like okay what do I what can I do to stay relevant with NAPA and to keep them out you know Doing what we normally do and I've always kind of approached my sponsors. You know. Even when I went to work for Dom Perdome you know. We had Copenhagen and Skoal. It wasn't something I brought to that team. He hired me as a driver and and so every day I woke up. I tried to do the best I could to help Be The best off track representative and then you fast forward to Schumacher's and we had brut Cologne And that that SORTA changed things for me. And then in three years there and it worked right into NAPA auto parts. So since then I've just I wake up every morning and wondering you know I feel like I'm kind of an extension of Napa in like a delivery person or a sales person so that was soon as I'm out of the race car. I'm thinking how can I be the best salesperson to help so much sponsor without being overly you know so I knew right away man I was GonNa? I could get on racing when this happened and I could have trucks and cars and race cars all painted up with NAPA logos and with everybody streaming like they are It was only a couple days before I heard from you first of all truck race but right away. I heard for some ask. Our guys were putting braces together. Dale Junior and and things like that that I knew that if I got a car painted up Napa and I was sort of doing my job the best I could considering the circumstances so daddy balled into the sprint cars with the world outlaws and I had car painted up for that and we ran that on Fox sports one. And it's just kind of snowballed and I just You know every day I feel like wake up trying to defend myself from from somebody taking my sponsor and if I do that then I feel like at the end of the day I worked as hard as I could to to be the best and what I do off track. Well you know in speaking of that. You know you talking about all the different disciplines you your acing in and things like that on. I racing and I know there was. What an Iraq race last night. But I'm looking at it going. You know this this this really could be and TV. Ratings are justifying it. I mean people are tuned in their engaged to what's going on. I mean that just are off. Road race drew the only online at drew almost one hundred and eight thousand viewers. You know and I'm looking at things going. You know this could be the modern day Iraq where you can get a guy like around caps against Alex Rossi against whoever it is on the upside and off road drivers you can mix everybody and you don't have the liability you would with real Iraq cars going around and say Daytona but you can do it. You can package it. I mean I. It's still shows a skill set like to me. This could be. I think you and I who have been around. Ira Sink before you know. And I think moving forward after I think they're in the outliers people kind of knew it. But I feel like it's Kinda pushed been pushed to the forefront even after we resume real world racing. I think there's there's actually a place for it in motor sports now. Yeah I do too and last night was a great example. I The two different races with different race car drivers I watched the show. I didn't get it obviously when I was racing but I went in and watch it on. Tv and it was pretty neat to see all the paint schemes. Because we couldn't really see him as good as we could as a fewers could on Fox sports one so it was pretty cool to watch how that evolved but it's unbelievably realistic. I mean you you know. You got the Nascar Sunday race. Pat over million viewers That Fox sports one the first dirt race we did. It was for Fox sports. It was up fifty percent from their previous whatever. They had scheduled the previous week on that Wednesday night so it showed them that the fans WanNa see that. They want to see more motor sports. That was cool. That was a good pat on the back for everybody because especially I raised him but like you said I mean last night. I mean there ration- with Scott speed with body La Bonnie I mean guys from everywhere and it was kind of cool to jumping dirt car race and all of a sudden you log out you take a breath you log in and we're lime rock. Connecticut Racing G. T. E. Cars and I'm in a Ferrari at lime rock which is something I will never ever get the chance to do in real life but it so realistic. I can tell somebody that I I felt like. I raised a Ferrari at lime rock against some of the best race car drivers in the world. So I think you're going to see more coast up in fact I know I don't let the cat out of the bag but here next week on Fox sports one night. They're gonNA have another sort of an Iraq and it's going to be pretty cool. I know that one of them is going to be an opera truck race. And that's GonNa be fun but they got a pretty good surprise coming out for next Wednesday night. I I'm aware of the surprise and I think everybody's going to be allowed to be tuned in for that. That's for sure and just looking at things I mean. It's I don't know it's got me excited for the future of racing. I know you've been involved for for a long time. I mean how many I gotta ask you. How many calls have you in text messages? Emails of you fielded thing broke. Iran Ron. How do I get involved so a lot? In fact I just got another one this morning from another race car driver. That was wondering how he can he just getting into the game. Getting a simulator set up and a wheel paddles. And you know some of these guys have got thirty. Forty thousand dollars simulators. And then you've got some of these guys winning races online with a wheel clamp to a desk with a computer monitor in front of them. So you don't need something expensive. That's the cool part I log on this morning at practice for a NASCAR truck event. I'm doing and there were fifteen thousand people on at one time which is nuts. And that's all over the world. So yeah I there's going to be so much more stuff coming out. I think even beyond getting back to real racing I think our seasons are going to be a lot funner now because I think they're the they've gone through this two where from November to February when there's no real racing on TV for fans. I think this next year we're going to ask some pretty cool stuff going on and I'm looking forward to it. Yeah I agree. I think the Winter Leagues. It's GONNA kick off you know and I think as drivers we enjoy it one but two. It's really easy you don't have to you know you don't have to get fancy you'd have to drive to get an airplane. It's literally go out your garage or your spare bedroom and sitting in for a couple of hours and I think it's so accessible and it's so easy for drivers to do and and it's so realistic. I I agree with you. I think this offseason get. We're going to have more more live motor sports content that we've had in a long holidays. Yep Yep gotta be fun looking forward to that for sure. Yeah so one last question for you let you go around. But you've been you know you've done a lot in real world driving. You've done a lot in the simulators now. Now that you've driven all these different vehicles in the SAM. Is there anything out there in the real world? You're looking at going man. It really would be fun to get behind the wheel of one of these. Oh Man Yeah. I've been lucky man. I got to do the Chili Bowl. A couple of times God that was probably still stands as one of the coolest events to be a part of man. I don't know yeah I you know before before core went away. I I had a test. That was coming up. I was going to get to go to and I was looking for jumping in a pro truck. And and doing some offroad truck in there and it just didn't happen and then You know I think that's probably the the most fun I have on. I racing right now. Is is the pro. Four trucks The fact that jumped on with a bunch of fans last night at At Wild Horse. And that's got to be the next thing. If I ever get a chance to actually do in real life mechanic imagine flying through the air like I do in the IRA seeing in real life and being able to throw that thing sideways. Because it you know in your race. We had a blast. You know So I think that's probably my next my next venture. If I get a chance did you have to ask you? You have a razor. Ut anything like that and your garage you gotta think they're all around you you know. It's funny I grew up with them all around me when I lived at San Luis Obispo up the coast. We had a lot of land that you didn't have to go far to get out and have some fun but I live in San Diego County. And you just can't do that anymore. So unfortunately you gotta you gotTa Total Glamis or someplace. You know So no I don't have one unfortunately but I talked to my boss Dom Perdomo and he's got a new truck being bill. Here's over Ivan Stewart's yesterday. He is so into it. I know that you know he's He's got razors and just out having a blast all the time so he's always bugged me to come hang out with them down nor race last year. Surprise a lot of people slated to do it again and I guess he got bit by the bug hard it was like a all in you know and he immediately fell in love again with you know with off road motor sports and I think it's it's all over now I want more. Yeah he just sent me a picture of a truck he's almost done or I don't know if it's a truck but he's GonNa run the Nora One thousand again coming up and it's I don't know if he's doing it with Jagger Jones again. I know they had a blast last time. So Yeah I. I enjoy watching snake smile and have a good time. Because he's he's earned it. I know Answer on and Stephen I we've been talking and I know they want to get out and getting some razors and have just a camping weekend out at like glamorous or something this winter after everything wraps up and we'll have to keep you in the loop. Get everybody out there and a bunch of UTV's and just have a good time in the dunes. I'd love to you yeah. I'm looking forward to that. So all right ron well I appreciate you taking the time buddy. I know we will be tune in to watch you an. Ira Seems like you got something going just about every single night of the week right now which is definitely a good thing man. Yeah Hey it's it's fun right. Now and the coolest part is the fans are engaged they can go to YouTube Channel Annapolis and they can actually right in my cockpit while these races going on.

I would like to welcome a very special guest this week. Winner of the Jim Beaver E. Sports e Short Coast World Cup presented by General Tire. Also a member of Jimmy Sports Camp Peterson Cam. Welcome the show buddy at grabbing me do so I gotTa talk about this one. I guess you know I guess you just won the biggest e short course race that's ever been put on but not only. Did you win it? And everybody knew your fast. You literally went and you qualified on the pole for four ounce and then you swept the field. I don't think there was a lap. You didn't lead in this thing like dude. I mean you WanNa talk about putting on a clinic. Clinical as it gets man like I know it wasn't easy. Oh did I call the race dude? Yeah Pretty Lucky to get that This four pole positions once. I got a foot pole. I really thinking they're not going to get that cleaned. Sleep but going into the event My my goal is to just get four podium. Finishes not clean. Sweep the whole thing but No it was awesome night Really Really Kind of underestimated underestimated myself. I guess but Yeah glad to put on a good show Did well well. And the thing that I find interesting about this race is we we purposely and it was almost like the Camp Iverson rule. We you've got all these world records set ups you know so we went and made everybody run the exact same setup so you didn't have a distinct advantage you know you've been you've put in the work behind the scenes. We'll talk about that in a minute. You know. And so you've got the hot rod setups but you literally run the same thing. Everybody else was and I think that's what makes this even to me. Even more impressive was the. You didn't have any advantage. It wasn't like you had better equipment than anybody. You were literally running the same stuff. Yeah the beautiful thing about those trucks Even though you have someone say a slow setup you can find a trade offs through corner where Even find speed. Where like they might. My fast might not actually be very quick. And you can. You can kind of weed out this role parts and find all those albums and You find speed and put the lack of gutter and hopefully come up going to ask. I know you have. It's not like you've been. I racing for five or six years like you're pretty new to the service I twenty eighteen was the first time you you logged onto IRA incorrect Twenty seventeen but I only did it. Oval in two thousand seventeen and then started to get more heavily into it and then Started doing trucks in October knocked here. That's what I think's impressive dude. Because I mean you've got all these world records things like that. But what was I gonNA ask Your Guy From Canada? You know obviously You know I think there's there's a little bit offroad racing up there I know in certain areas but You know by and large. It's not like you're exposed to a lot of this stuff on a daily basis less. You're tuned it on the Internet stuff like that. I mean not like you grew up off road like what was the draw for Short Course for you just kind of like the wow factor of it. it's kind of like late models with the third dimension of going up and down off the jumps I grew up on circle. Track ON THE DIRT. My my father. He's a five time track championship. Championed local Local tractor they're tracking kinda followed in his footsteps and cycle track as well and kind of ducked rugged throw it around and get the corners and just a little nudge here and they're kind of racing is What kinda thrive on and I really enjoyed it and kind of stuck with it and Founder els pretty decent at it so I kept with it and Leela impressing people. Yes well. Yeah now you're standing here and I know you just had a race. What was the last night I believe in you know? There's some league racing you're an you've won this one like. I think it's safe to say. How are you feeling like sitting there going? I've got world records. I've got a cup win. You know I've got all these other wins with you know in league races and stuff like you. I don't think anybody's going to argue the fact you're the best you know racing short-course driver in the world right now. How does that make you feel man because like literally our number one in the world really makes me feel like all my Late nights and countless hours of practice and finally paid off but No I'm Kinda more so waiting for fresh competition that come in Definitely going to be some new talent coming in now that Irish gone quite viral. And especially I mean. One Hundred. Eighty thousand views on On Your livestream there. It's going to get some attention and died like mental beyond don't play IRA's and no. I mean you're GonNa get guys are GonNa be on the service and they're going to be quick. They're going to be some talented people coming coming along quite shortly and I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to the to the good racing. I'm looking forward to learning new things and Yeah Coke and people give appropriate director shot and the pro trucks as well. And that's it like I knew in real world go hand in hand and I feel like I racing and that's one thing we try to do this thing like I think everybody likes the pro force. One they're a little bit easier to drive. You know so. I think everybody really prefers the pro fours I thought with this event on my Keno. We really need to show. Who's the best of the best? We need to include the pro. Twos because in real off road they. Actually you know a lot of times. They're the main show you know it's like a bigger entry field than pro force because of expenses and things like that you know and and you know what. What is your feelings on that? With erasing approaches WPRO force because in the real world. They go hand in hand. But I feel like an Irish. And everybody's kind of skewed more towards the pro fours I mean. Do you like switch it up racing. Both I mean would you prefer just to be in the pro four all the time? I enjoy listening The poetry you. I can be quite a struggle most because spent so much time with pro phobia beforehand but It's definitely two different times. Driving Style Your right foot is still doing the same thing in terms of but because The pro for you don't WanNa Slide. But you'd have four wheel drive so you can't get more throttled but The PRO twos you. You do have to turn those things a little sideways to get Good lap and so but at the same time they don't WanNA spend the truck right around so you gotta keep out of the Toronto with a little bit but I mean different animals in the corner but still fun really fun to drive so so for let you go. I mean GotTa gotTa put you on the spot here like you've raised against some of the Best Sim racers on the service. You know what I mean. Some of the League races and things like that. But how was it sharing track with guys like Travis Pastrana and indy? Five hundred champion. Alex Rossi Got Greg Biff. Lose and NASCAR champion. I mean pretty. Rad Experience right yeah absolutely and I kind ramped up towards it because I got the heads up of who is going to be in there so I can kind of Kind of put myself into the mindset of who? I was racing with before their base You know a couple of weeks beforehand. Which was helpful for me. I think you kind of took the pressure off a little bit but still though To the older as teams like that that's Something I never expected what happened Rely foreign I racing those names that were in there. It's almost kind of speechless. In all your data base against those guys it was definitely a privilege and hopefully Macapa again in. That means sad. I mean what's next you think for you know. Obviously we know what's next year? We're going to put on a couple of events for short course and I know I've been really pushing. I racing behind the scenes at some point. I know they gotta get some new tracks but to do a proper world championship rally cross in late models sprint cars. Nascar and everything else. But you know for you. I mean obviously. That's obviously ideal. They ever do create a world championship. You know but that being said everything else I mean. I know we've talked about possibly try and some some rallycross or anything else is really blip on your radar on the service right now. Are you pretty dedicated? Short-course I'm going to stick with of course regardless of what I I branch off into Most of the if some new names come along not in Really push my limits and Look forward to that but On the outside world pro four is a protein. And I'm looking at the rally cross like you said Because it is for the drive on the dirt and asphalt. So I'm GonNa see if I can learn new things there And then besides dot. I don't really know yet still an oval guy at At heart so I'm not gonNA stick with something there I'm I'm a fan of all types of racing no and I love learning new things so something like Gte GT three cars. Have kind of a soft spot for those kind of things. I enjoy driving them Challenging and lost to learn from so I Candidate aside anything right now Everything's a kind of open right now for me but Definitely GonNa be getting something new. I think I can say my. My phone is blown up your email on tax and everybody's. I've got all these friends and they're like can you send me Cam setup? Can you send me Cam setup on like no? It's not there so push comes to shove. I think you could always get a job selling your setups to people. I think they probably lied to by a man you know. I'm giving myself to my teammates and stuff eighty like. How do you drive this thing? You always wait. You already drive. I said well it's it's tailored to specific driving style so it might not work for you and that's the thing about pro four trucks is is. It's the way you drive it. It's not going to do all the work for Ya so you need to. Kinda take that to You're driving style match it with your setup. I never even really thought about that. Yeah you're right and I know in the real life and I don't really know how they work on on Sim racing. I mean I've been in there but I I I don't drive them at high level I just haven't even own a simmering myself Real world all wheel drive trucks. You know you've got to drive one hundred percent you've got to be overly aggressive with them. You know what mean and I think there's not really a finesse. It's it's strong arm. You know what I mean. And that's when they really start working right and I was at any any similarities to that in you. Know in sim racing. The protas more so Like I said you can throw things sideways. Instead of good luck in the pro fourth. So much I racing Tire Modernism Kuwait. On all well where it should be compared to real life. I still think they've done an amazing job with the truck. Don't get me wrong but It's not like a thrown sideways into the corners. That can do in your life and back then to each corner to get that A real good lap time in real life and They hope they do Work on that a little bit and see what they can come up with but until then you're just kind of coasting not coaching. But just just kinda making a stick around the corner kind of like a go. Kart and Yeah I mean until then I look forward to maybe any updates. We can have to make More like a real thing and maybe that will entice Real world drivers come along and try to. Yeah one. I think that's the thing you know. I feel like short courses kind of been on the service and they really haven't done a whole lot with it because they didn't have to. I feel like with the things you guys are doing. You know you and your teammates and then you know an event like this that brings in that many people I think racing's looking at it going man that that brought in more viewers than some of our at rallycross races. Some of our circle track races. Did you know and I think my hope is is. I racing saw those numbers. Like oh man we need to double the hell. We need to invest in this. We've we've got a couple of tracks scan. We need to get him on the service we we need to spend a little more more more time with with what we've got going on with the short course trucks just because I I think they don't realize what they had there. As far as you know what I mean I is interest in it. You know absolutely. I think it's really enticing to like The younger people because it's such an exciting type of of driving experience within a I racing around the thing is there's no there's no other platform that has that type of vehicle. I I don't think anyways and even being close to not accurate so yeah I think there's definitely a really really good platform to work off of and hope they They continue to grow. I agree well. I appreciate you taking the time Cam in now. Thanks for calling into the show. We will definitely be chatting with you on the discord out buddy and you know. I I don't know Congrats on taking home.

Polaris Razor like to welcome my good friend. Ryan are Sierra to the show Ryan man the Big One who finally got the monkey off your back because you've won in trophy truck before but this has to be feel really damn good about now. I tell you what it it is it And the Monkey. The monkey has gone off the back at You're you're right in saying that I mean that's I think my my last win was a toy hurts. Corker For the best in desert race. And I think that was in two thousand fourteen thirteen or fourteen and then prior to that was my back toback ball one thousand wins in trump trump with Mark Miller in two thousand and three and four and I just goes to show you how difficult how tough it is to win a trophy race nowadays. I mean it's it is no joke and if anybody followed about race on Saturday you can see how close it was all day long all the way to the end just incredible. I think this course one thing I loved I haven't race down in Baja and a few years. We're talking about going back next year but this course in particular this reminded me of the old saw fish. Baja five hundred courses. I mean this is. We're talking early. Two Thousand Mid-2000s. A lot of that correct me. If I'm wrong was like those five hundred courses but Roger Norman has kinda gone a different route with his five hundreds and things like that so I think a lot of this probably hasn't been running a few years right now. You know what? Thou one of the key sections well. There's two You had you had Santa Catarina Wash which is before that we had. We had run that They haven't done that in a long time. My Dad happened to be My Dad went out there with With Sean Hoagland and And they chased us and they went out to checkpoint one which is that. Wash and my dad. My Dad was sitting in. Wash with Sean. Waiting for me. He goes he goes. I remember racing my two seat car back in eighty here and And and the Toyota truck as well and and I don't think we've we've run that since Probably the eighties and nineties If that and And then and then it's been it's been since two thousand two thousand probably six or seven something like that that we that we Are so that we ran down. Simpson's Outta Mike Sky Ranch and So it's neat to be able to buy those old courses back in again and I mean the the course for me this year overall I loved it. It was a real. It was really a driver's course You know not a lot. I don't hold on a rough. We didn't we. We missed all the stuff Which is not the end of the world for me. 'cause I like a driver's course I like technical and And this course with the length itself to my driving style so but But the biggest thing we had to overcome all day long and it was for everybody Except for except for the lead the to lead trucks was dust That's what's horrible especially where we started you know and I know there's been a lot of talk on the Internet about dust and I know this was that weird one where You know we've gone to most of the events. Now have qualifying but this one for one reason or another didn't and I know it was kind of the old school pill draw where I grew up without. I mean we're we're super with that but you know it's middle long time since he unlimited classes actually were by pill John so I think there was a lot of fast starting in the back. You probably didn't get the starting position you want. I mean I think it added a whole different aspect of this. I mean how was that for you going back to this pill draw type thing you know that we haven't seen in a while. Ryan I tell you what when they did they did. The drought ripta cameras deals by headquarters and And I and I. I wasn't able to be there in person so I've watched it Online and Me and my my hands were sweating and Because I knew I could I could have drawn just as bad as Dan. Mcmillan dead or I could have been lucky that day so I mean it's it's really a coin toss about point and and Especially with this course. The way this course was laid out and And how technical and one line of course was Having a crappy draw is absolutely can determine whether whether you're going to do well or not do well this race and And that that's Because we we don't WanNa add another element to what What is what we already go against to try to start to finish to win. One of these races and And when you when you mix in some of the slower guys and I said I say that lightly these guys You know we're all out there all. They're competing we all we all to have a chance to win and But you guys are either. That are new to the sport or don't have the experience level that Some of the fast guys have and And run and run a lot slower pace. I mean it can really turn your race upside down and Because it being a one line courts For this race there's not a lot of opportunity to pass in And for for for us and I know a lot of the other guys out there it It you know. We had all week long. During pre running we had wind and at this this never fails race day. It was still as can be and I can't. I can't meteorologist at all during the week of pre running like man. This is great and I hope this wind comes up for Saturday and in the back of my head. I'm like it's going to be like every every other race. We have were Saturday morning. It's going to be still as as can be and you know it was it was the wind was still and And so the dust just set so it made it even more difficult to try to run through the data. Try to cut somebody and You had to be patient. You had to be You could making mistakes and couldn't be any flat. Pirated couldn't corners If you wanted to win the race you had to be consistent. And has the patience or anything that dust and to try to get around guys that are making. That are making these mistakes. And that's that's what we capitalized on. We weren't able to physically pass anybody running because you couldn't see so enforce us to to be consistent then make the mistake then we get around. That's exactly what we did all But still it was an uphill battle over the finish line. 'cause 'cause there was only one time that I was out of dust and that was Robbie Pierce started right in front of me between India mcdonagh myself. Robbie had a A mechanical issue of Mile Sixty and And I was in deep in his dust and And allowed me to get around him and I had a little bit of clean air for about forty miles. And thus allowed me to bridge that gap to that next group of trucks up in front of us and And that was it that that was the only That was the only Probably break I had dust free. The whole rest of the race was industrial the hallway to the finish. What do you think you know because we you and I both read? What's going on the Internet and everything else but you feel like if there was some wind on race day or if they would have got rain you know that week of or something like that it would have changed dynamic and we wouldn't be hearing the conversations we're having. I you know what I agree it. the draw itself probably probably made the race the way the way it ended up And not just winning but how close it wasn't dependent. I've never I've never. I know you haven't either early years. We've been involved in the sport you ever seen that before. We we have that many stacked up like seconds. Boom one truck second third truck I mean that was incredible and that was more than likely this public because the draw I'm not a big fan of the drought going back to answer your first question. I'm not a big fan of it. I'd rather as qualified Or be based on the merits of of Where we finished last race for us our last week of five hundred and and and we ended up having DNS because of the because of a part failure So for us it was about. I was okay with with the draw for this particular race. I would rather qualified. Don't get me wrong but But having a good finish at this race was everything because it Leads us right into the biggest race? We have all your long. Which is the one that everyone wants to win them by one thousand and talking about the one thousand I mean Ryan you know the I guess the results for this determined the ball on thousand correct. I mean you you. You're on pole position for the biggest off road race of the year buddy. How are you approaching this man? This is like poll at the indy. Five hundred buddy. I know it's it's it is huge. This year's it does. It does come with some disadvantages as well opening the road For Ball went. Thousand sometimes could sometimes can be a disadvantage but all depends all depending on the weather. What we have It's also obviously a huge advantage because because we're setting the pace and And as long as there's no mistakes made are flat tires your free. What's not having dust in front of? You is digging than advantage. Anybody says it's not. It is the biggest thing that you need to realize as a as a driver is teams. It's a Munich with you every step of the way on where you're at because you have nothing to gauge the pace off of that point When you're when you're outside and and the perfect example of that is what happened to us to San Felipe. They lost radio. Weei Weei radio issues and and at R. M. set issues to be able to communicate with me and we had such a big lead over the whole rest of the pack. I think we had fifteen twenty minutes to the next car behind us. We it was. We were checked out but what I didn't get any information whereas all fast guys are started way back. There were thirty thirty forty minutes back Startling and And not having an information and not being able to get that information to me. I just kept running all day. Well that pace wasn't quick enough because you know Indian the US by little over a minute Because he was able to pick up the pace of knew exactly where I was. I had no idea where he was. So it comes with some disadvantages as long as you get to get the communication needs of validate the pace that you're running whether you need to pick it up whether whether you're paces good or or whether you come back down a little bit and we're GonNa continue this conversation and Ryan are Sierra when we return here to the downunder de Radio show powered by Polaris Razor after this break conditions off the pavement are always changing so why settle for a light bulb that just turns on the rigid adapt is a revolutionary new.

Thanks for tuning into the down and dirty radio show available live online in syndication on networks across the US and available internationally on the American Forces Network. Welcome back to the down. Thirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor. Jimmy were here along with my good friend. Ryan are CIERO and Ryan. Got To be really excited with this program. I know you've had some hiccups along the way but right now. I mean you mentioned San Felipe a but now you guys are hitting your stride. I mean I think you know we know with a new program. Sometimes it takes a while to get everything to put together and everything to Gel. But you've got to be really excited right now because I feel like this season you know everything is finally you know you guys have kind of come together and it's there you guys are there it. We've been knocking even working so hard. The the The guys Terrible ALDs guys have been they. They've been working their butts off all year long on these trucks and It sucks that sucks are awesome. I said we just been missing a couple of pieces of the puzzle. Small very small things and It takes all those pieces come together to win a race and And refining they're just out This was the first race for our new power plant We're we're making that crossover between NASCAR auto racing go. Gibbs racing is building engines now They're building itself. Inflec- specific engine Troy herbst was the first one to run it in San Felipe and tin roofs. Dot His Right after Stanford with it for the five hundred and then And then we have ours now and then The fourth engine. That that gives built went to Went to the concrete guys Kevin Thompson Harley Wedner Which they didn't want to this race they ran it for Vegas Reno and had had some issues mechanical problems with something else. but But this engine Jimmy this engine. No joke These guys. They took everything they learned from. Nascar and With Nascar you you have to build a building engine based on based based on being box being constrained you can all you can only do this Now he's the engineers over there Dustin Barkthins and builder We're able to really take everything they learned from. Ashkar and take take it to another level and and and build something really special. This is one of the one of the best engines I've ever raced in any form of motorsport incredible. You know that that's amazing to me. You know that we've got you know. And I know Robbie's done some stuff development stuff with his engines and things like that you know from stuff. He's been able to bring over from cup. You know to have an investment like Joe Gibbs and I know I know Ralph's Kinda toyed with things but they've never really gone all in but You know to have that kind of You know brain power and that's not taking anything away from anybody off road but NASCAR. I mean you and I know that that's just another level there but I mean this. That's so huge for our industry as a whole and just to see where things kind of turned. Because I think it's GONNA make everybody raised their game over the next year to know for sure and it's not they didn't just take a NASCAR engine and say okay we're just going to tweak it here to there and make it work for the the trump each other guys They started from scratch. They developed a new block. parts and pieces They started they started from scratch. But there's all the resources they had and and And they spend a lot of frigging money To win those NASCAR races so they there's a lot at their disposal They took all that and develop something brand new for what we do. And I think that I do. I think that's really cool to the even sparked interest for them to want to get involved in trophy truck and it just goes to show the landscape a trophy truck and how cool it is in and the exposure. It's getting now You know offer racing in general but But it's just neat to see that and And you know with the Gibbs guys coming. They come to each one of the races and they are having the time of their lives that they love the sport They've embraced it The people the sport embrace them so that I think is just so cool. Yeah I do think it's funny. You mentioned that cause it's crazy that I go. I can go to a NASCAR race now and I've been a couple of them just with general tire in Arkan- what you know Riley Herpes Zane Smith and Sheldon creed and and now Haley Degan. And it's like I go to these races and I feel like it's old home week but you know it's I. I love that we're at a point. Now with offroad where we've got these mergers what I mean not mergers but things are kind of meshing together where you've got the community and and you've got the NASCAR community coming over and I think it's so amazing that we're at this point where we're this is actually happening and I think for both. It's you know we've got these super talented kids are GonNa be you know racing stock cars that at the Premier Division in the next year or two and You know and on the same token our be able to bring that technology over what were doing. Like it's an amazing crossroads around here for the sport of off road. I think we're I think we're such a cool time. I really do and it is. It's neat for me to turn on the TV. And See all those guys like you know like Riley who I've seen grow grow up and In trying to make their way into the cup series You know it's just so cool you see someone come from the Oth- road side of things because typically an an and NASCAR sprint cars World of outlaws You know and and And late models in You know just living short tracks and And to see see the guys that are coming through the off road ranks and having just as much success or just as much talent in Nascar's as as as the other ones that have lived and breathed in the short tracks. I think that's really cool. It just goes to show you that the talent pool that that offer develops As far as driving ago. It's pretty incredible. Well all this being said Ryan you guys positioned for one thousand as we said. I mean how how you guys now. Are you going to approach the thousand? I mean what do things look like for you? Because we're actually not far away from the Baja one thousand. I mean less than two months out. I know you're GonNa go do your homework. Do some pre running this. This isn't a point to point. One Thousand Hi. How are you guys? GonNa Approach this. You know how much I mean. 'cause YOU GOTTA. I gotta feeling you gotTa look at things a little bit differently now like you said because you are going to be leading the way. No there's no doubt with Jim with It's It's definitely yeah definitely can't you cannot rest on what you just did last weekend and that's done and over with them and And I'm I'm still I'm still in high on a high from it but But the second I got home. My my my brain's switchgears two thousand and And and certainly and SORTA looking down the road and the guys. The guys have a lot of work to do all. These trucks have to be completely torn down and gone through and repressed For for the thousand which is only a couple of months away if you know if that and so there's a lot of work to be ad obviously pre running and trying to figure where the resources going typically when we do a loop thousand race We usually go underneath the thousand mile. Mark as far as Total mileage But with that being said that doesn't mean it's any less difficult to do the ball thousand. It's a replace to me. It's almost more difficult than Not just not just logistically because logistically doing the thousands of the peninsula run is very very difficult but But typically the racecourses in the northern part of Bihar are very rough I can only only assume for us to get them out to me. We're GONNA be doing all of sample leaping all. The rough stepped down the thing. Well it takes a toll on both and driver and more important vehicles. Well so when you get you get done with the ball one thousand. It's a loop race you are spent the trucks are spent near the team has spent and they're just as difficult To do so for us going to do a little bit of testing 'cause you you need to. You need to continue to develop. You need to continue to push the envelope. You need to find ways to make the truck better because all your all your competitors are doing it so once again. You can't sit on your laurels. You got to keep pushing and pushing forward and But that's what's exciting I've been I've been racing for over twenty five years but bin run on my whole life like you I don't stop learning every time I get in get into vehicle. I'm always learning something. I'm always changing something. I'm always adapting and doing something different but but it's you know it's it's GonNa be such a thrill starting on the pole for being the first car to two thousand and And the goal is to make sure you put together. A great program keeps us there and And that's not just. It's not just a team. It's not just the driver navigator. It's it's it's everything together And most most of what happens to go win. The Ball. One thousand happens at the shop And in the planning side of things The reasoning is a fun part that we get to do That's that's a small percentage of the overall picture but But for us and I'm super excited to go into this racing super excited to start first We have some great saunters on the truck. Jointly did the paint job on the leeway and And it has become such an icon down of the fans down just absolutely have gravitated towards towards it. Love it And then you have. We had we've got a new sponsor on for For this race. dragonfly They bill drones. And they really. Really big thrones That carry science camera equipment. Those guys this is their first time doing offered rates a long time to Baja and they were blown away not to mention we went. We went out of the box with them being involved but But they were. They were so beside themselves and and And gravitated towards sport for me. I love seeing that. I love him to do some people to the sport that I've never seen before never experienced it before. Because this just like you you can. We can talk about what we talk about our sport until we're blue in the face people exactly. That's cool but how do you explain it you know? How do you create that emotion unless you're there and you see it and you experience a firsthand so you know and And obviously guys'll be a quitter it's you know. I didn't get a single floss rates because of what they put into the sport engineering they put into those fires. It is just. It's absolutely incredible. You know You know it goes to everything having package that King Shocks Casey highlights You know having score working their butts off able to get us get approved for us to go race down there. I wouldn't want that job You know it's it's it's why it's wild. It's absolutely well. Yeah well you know what I gotta ask you know we. We've been having united talkback earlier this year when we had you on that Podcast that did amazing feedback by the way everybody loved US talking all off road and things like that but Y- all wheel drive versus tool drive. Man I mean you know here we were at a really. I mean this. Is You know this was a prototypical. This is Bach. I grew up on. You know what I mean and you know what? What's your take on that? I mean I still. Obviously we know all wheel drive. They're coming. They'RE FAST. They're wicked fast. But something like this. I mean I think you know what we seem to drive. It can still put it down. I mean I think we I think we just proved it on Saturday it Granted there was there was there was a elements of being industrial. You're always Gonna. Have you always going to have some element to it But I I was. I was excited to see The fact that we did we came out. Victorious over the full drives drives. They are coming and and Obviously the reliability of them is now. There is as far as I know I mean there was three four wheel drives Finished and finished Physically in front of us what that had zero issues Bryce Menzies and I think this is Dustin flat. Fires if even got those zero issues. So now they're reliability's air But at the same time we still beat them with the tools drive so I what I haven't seen yet is wall. We're racing and without any issues on either side. I haven't seen them completely smoke. The tour drives yet That doesn't mean that's not coming. I driven one of affordable drives and it is it is incredible when it comes to the aided roads into San Washes and And how how? It ACCELERATES IVA corner. There's no question no doubt about the fact that it that For does that better than the tool drive. But you also have to put the big picture together. You have to put the picture together from the Green. Fight the checkered flag.

Jeremy Mcgrath through the show. We were just talking off air. Finally man it's been a long time coming but stoked to finally have y'all buddy man. Thanks for me. Yeah. It's been a long time coming what we were talking about that. We've been trying to set up for quite a few years now but it's definitely Time to knock it off the list so thanks for having me yeah. I'm already my wheels already. Turn and I know like this This past week I went out and spent spend a day with Brian Deegan and we sat down. We talked for like almost an hour and a half two hours on his whole career and things like that and been fortunate to be able to do that with Ken. Block and Pastrana and I'm like now like now you're going to get a text me. Jeremy when do we get to knock this deal out? I want to come and sit down and bring a film crew and knock out a whole like talk about your whole career in Spanish. Can't do that on the national show. And I'm like we'll click and man. Yeah well this is a a nice start to it but we put that together no problem at all. So we got you on the show in good reason man Dude coming out of nowhere. Lucas offered racing series sweep in the weekend man. I know you had a good run at crandon. How fortunate to be able to call that but I mean I know this whole to pro to image thing I know you saw. Maybe a little bit of opening their where you could sneak in and run up front and do pretty well but you do sweep in a weekend. You couldn't have saw that coming man. Well no I definitely didn't see it coming you know. It's true like what a month ago I wanted to be there for. Crandon you know this year. I stopped chasing the point series in the Lucas series so I had raised the series for eight years finally won the championship. Just so pumped got the protei titled in Seventeen Eighteen we kind of decided all right. This would be the last year that'll chase the points and then for nineteen season figured all right. Let's work on the truck. Get it ready They like you said they have the new pro to 'em which is the SPEC engine little smaller blocks and So when I decided we were going to Cranston for the fiftieth I was like all right. Let's build the truck and put the smaller engines so we can race with all the proteins that are back there and I didn't didn't want to have to use the open. Motor like we had used in the past so it's time to change it up and Cranwell so we were like all right well. Let's let's take this going on and see how it goes and Obviously I was pretty confident in my truck and we went out and tested a few times and got it sorted out and I was like. Oh the things. Pretty good and But yeah I mean to be able to sweep the week and I hadn't. I'm not sure I've ever done that. Short-course so it was a pretty pretty amazing weekend. Well that's going to be pretty cited. We're GONNA see you at In Phoenix at the finale. Now I mean the Cup races are limited extra money on the line there too I've gotten that question probably a hundred times last week and the answer is no I You know I promised myself you know. Look you know my career and you know. My story raced race motorcycles. Rvs trucks a little bit of everything my whole life and I just sin as I stopped chasing the championship. I said we're GONNA do stuff that makes sense that we can do great promotion and and Hook up our partners like Maxon icon and rigid. And and you know all the people that are really helping me and I think it's you know like hey if we can have some fun and and go do it. That's what we're GONNA do and You know we came to Glen. Helen had a phenomenal weekend. It was just. I mean you can't dream in those kind of weekends so We went day but what our plan was never to go to Arizona. You know our plan was never get make it to the finals. We Wanted to raise Glen Helen and and it went well and so she. Everyone can sit on that one for a while you know. Yeah I know you see a lot of guys kind of move into to something like that. You've been on the road for your entire life. You know whether it be chasing supercross cut across titles and then obviously you've mentioned there with running seven years in pro too but you know you feel like that's you know there's I don't know to me there's probably a little bit more happiness in that right where you're not having to worry about every weekend and you can just show up three or four times a year and and have some fun and you know you can run up front it to me. It's got up. Maybe there's a little more fulfilling that way too. Well I mean certainly last weekend was super fulfilling. I mean I hadn't raced my truck in eight months and With the exception driving CRAN and a couple of weeks before so You know it's I think he just at this point. The world is so media driven and we have some different style. Things we can do videos and and you know we can all sort of think can block for that kind of avenue that we've been using lately and You know so. I'm not sure I'm not sure I think for our team and our partners we can get more eyeballs on. Just doing one off stuff and You know last weekend like I said the gun hill is crazy. We went out and won the race qualified. I and both days and I mean the guys I normally raced with. I never even saw on the weekend. So that was that was pretty crazy and You know it's one of those things. I know that in the in the future. They're going to be moving. Everyone's probably going to be moving down to the small engine and and the whole class will be together again which which racing will be just crazy insane again but Last weekend was great and to be able to just have a nice weekend like that and be able to walk away and go all right. Let's what's our next plan and you know that's a good feeling. Yeah you know I gotta go back to you mentioned krant and how is that going to? Cran YEARS I. I've been fortunate to pass through us to be to kind of call the racist back there and stuff but it's a dude is a zone boy going back there to to watch that. That's that's gotta just be a little bit insane man. Well you know if you don't if you remember years ago it wasn't I mean I knew I'd always wanted to get back to crandon but it wasn't I wasn't sucker fish out of water on this last trip because I had raised for Johnny Greaves in the Monster Toyota team years back. Maybe nine years ago I started racing trucks and so I had the opportunity to race crane and a few times and You know I I can imagine I mean I remember my first time going there. I was just like what the world is crazy with that first corner with the Land Restaurant. I mean it's it is. It really is amazing. An amazing place but I always ready. I mean I was ready and when I went there my my. I was ready to run up front. And that's what we did. Almost I mean. We got two podiums out of the three races that we raised in to get that podium in the cup race was this. I mean way more than we ever expected so but I knew we had a fast track so it was just get some good starts and see if we can lead laps and and that's what we did so it was great weekend. I mean when you go to crandon versus everything else. You're Kinda like wow you definitely know. You're at the pinnacle. Yeah it's yeah and I think it's hard to even explain it to people who haven't actually been there but it's just like you said it you just walk in and it's like I've been to the five hundred Quite a few times and you walk into Cran. I get the same feelings like you. Just know you're someplace special you know and I think that's yeah I was just about it you know and you know I I think that out on the West Coast. We have a lot of action. We have a lot of racing a lot of desperation. And even you know we've had short-course over the last you know however many years but I just don't think you can get that type of facility anywhere out west so I mean yes. Cranston is a monster awesome track awesome race but just to be able to go there and see that property and be able to drive there and and see those kind of speeds with that kind of crowd and I mean that. That's that's exactly why we all you know what it's funny you talk about the facility. As I've driven back through the campground staffer feel like it just keeps going deeper and deeper into the woods and he'd just like you never see the end of it. It's like yeah there's more people there's more people like. Wow what are these people coming from? Yeah that that is for sure man you you walk back there or are you cruise. Background could bike or even a side-by-side whatever man. Yeah it's pretty unbelievable what you can find the net campground one. I know you were pretty busy this weekend with doing some stuff with Kawasaki. You're still involved with the brandman dealer Shou. That's a pretty big announcements coming out of Kawasaki this week. Yeah it's funny. I was just talking about the guy that runs. My you know help. Senior Management Team. He's like you've been super busy this week and it's funny Sunday was going on and then Monday morning was a Kawasaki Dealer Convention Palm Desert. So went home. That night woke up five. Am TO SPLIT. Go Down had to be down in Palm Desert eight o'clock so Y- really hasn't stopped sake shows going this week. Obviously with a huge announcement this week with the new tariffs K R X one thousand. And that's the new side by side for Kelly and It's the introductions ingrate so in fact I'm sitting here looking at one right now. I picked up mine yesterday and It's GonNa go get this thing dirty but it's It's been a long time coming for Kelly and I. I've driven this thing. It's it's it drives super well on this thing as superfund super stable they had a The Demo of course. I'm not sure if you got a chance to get out and see it but the demo of course they had down there was amazing. Yeah I know it looked like it. A lot of rock crawling like a just had a bit of everything right. Oh yeah they're high speed that rock crawling. They had low-speed rock crawling. They had ups and downs. And I mean the really the course they rented this rock quarry down there and it really looks like a video game. Pretty incredible so All the B. There's got to go out and do that They did. They did the first half the dealers. The first wave was Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday Thursday Friday was the rest of the show. So it finishes up today but It's been A. It's been a real busy week so after after today. We'll it'd be nicer relaxing. Think about that Glen Helen race from last week. Miami so I gotta ask you. Obviously they got that side by side. You know you you pick yours up any itch to do a little side by side race and maybe well you know what? Certainly the door is open. Our right has been closed on that for me for a long time here and now You know I think after Glenallen. My trucks going to get prepped and parked in the corner. We're GONNA get a won't have one. I'm picking up another one. We're GONNA do a build on the tax and he takes care acts and I WANNA build up from my daughter and myself and then uh-huh maybe us go do it. Works maybe do king of the hammers. I don't know it's kind of You know the the slates pretty clean right now. It's wide open so we'll see what happens. Yeah I guess a lot of possibilities now. I think that's got people pretty excited. I gotTa ask before we let you go though. I know you're busy and now we're going to be up against time break. But how often do you want a dirt bike anymore? Jeremy I ride my bike quite a lot. it's probably once every. I Dunno if this is a lot but once every other week probably still I mean. I raised a mammoth motocross race in June. The big race there this week this year. They haven't every year in June and I was riding quite a lot leading up to the summer and and prep for prep for that race Ended up getting a victory which was cool. Forty I read. Forty forty pro and Yeah so I mean I try and get out as much as I can The dirt bikes going to be a steady in my whole life. You know for my whole life and most of it at least until I can't get the thing off the stand anymore anyway But I ride my bike quite a lot and I read my mountain bike quite a lot. And then you know my buddies I go down to Baja a lot. So the side by side things and You know a big big thing in my life for the past couple of years. So that's why I'm super excited about the new chair. Yeah I think. That's I think the entire industry you know it's You know obviously I'm GonNa Polaris Guy but I think it's been one of those where everybody knew this was coming in. Its got us all excited you know and I know you know Cowie. They seem like they are one of those. It's like you know if we're if we're GONNA come in late to the game we're going to bring our game you know and. I think that's exactly what they did. I think that's what got everybody so excited you know. Well you know it's it's The last years of in so exciting was what players can Canam done? I mean for us unite and all the other guys that love go out and drive. I mean these vehicles have been amazing and the kind of progression that they've put forth over. The last few years has been amazing. And I think you're right you know when Honda came out with a talent and and Kelly now coming out with new TEREX You know these guys had to. They had to be on their game. Because there's a lot of competition out there and to to be In the game with players and Canam these days gonNA take some work but You know the Japanese were up for it obviously it's Kelly's first time in the market for a sports side by side which is You know it's a tough market to jump into but I'm confident and things are going to be awesome. I've driven it. I love it and You know we're going to continue to work on it and just like the other brands you know. There's there's GonNa be stuff coming right behind it to what's the next thing you know. People's attention span is so short these days but I'm I'm just taking it out there and enjoy it.

Man couldn't be better now. That's awesome good to hear glad things are going well for you. What's been going on with you lately. What's happening took a sabbatical first time in forty years here in an. I'm just leaving my brother's house. In drake's idaho tom for a week and went and rode jackson hole bicycles and motorcycles for the last winter sun valley. And some other buddy over there just been seen a bunch of friends. I haven't seen in four or five years and just got my trait little trailer by me. And i got my my My motorcycle in the air. Ktm and i got a go my bike my specialize in it's been been amazing awesome. Well yeah no. That's awesome so that leads me right into my first question i had for you here. Written down was you sold some of the business. You step back a little bit from the day to day. Grind of you built this company from your garage right painting helmets. What's it been like to have a little less control than you're used doing a little less work than you're used to like. How are you adjust to that. And i mean that's every businessman's dream. But sometimes i mean literally is your name on the company. Sometimes it gets frustrating. How is it for you. Yeah i've i've got some really good partners. Matter of fact. I just finished breakfast with one of my partners up here and he lives up here too so my my my guys that i sold this to our friends and enthusiasts so that made a big step they really. They go to the races with me. A we ride bicycles together and and fish together and They're they've been really good partners and and You know they gave me a sixty two page report before they before this deal air. But it's nice. Not you know jason payroll every week you know. I've been doing that for forty years here now. Last that they've been partners for three years and to be honest with you. I couldn't ask for better partners. They're they've We've gone through you. Know hired some people and got rid of some people. But i really my whole life. I've been just trying to surround myself with with better partners whether they're you know artists and designers are there you know a better. Cpa or a better banks or you know if you align yourself with great people. I think you can accomplish. Great things. And i think that's what we're doing right now. I mean i took these partners on. Because i had some ideas out to make safer helmets and i wanted to produce more of them and our number one thing for our company and You know my forte is is putting wild colors together and build and packages and you know right to focus more than ever on the race team. And that's that's a. I never thought i'd have a race team. Never thought i'd have a to fifty factory team. A factor and be able to launch a new brand like gas and have a lot of fun with it It's a super super fortunate and can't thank the people that have help me pull this whole thing off. Can't thank enough. That's cool. Because i know a couple of guys that sold their their business. They built from the ground up and they sold it and both guys i know left early. They're like i hate that. I hate the decisions you people are making with my company. And i have no power and i'm outta here. You know what i mean. So it's certainly on sideways where people. I'm glad it's working out for you. Yeah now they these guys were going to be in for three years and they just told me. I said let's go for another three years. It's been a great thing. so cool. Cool led me a little perfect a little more. What i'm doing and And they're doing the business. So i think it's It's it's been awesome. You mentioned gas gas. And of course justin barsha winning anaheim one for you guys and you know what i was talking to. How kief about this a little lago bosch is such a perfect fit for your company. Your brand it really couldn't worked out any better. I know you you're talking to dylan a little bit and there's rumors of other guys but bam bam and you guys that's perfect. It really is a nice fit. Yeah now it's super. You know one of those guys that you know. He's just at my house a couple of weeks ago building a mini bike track at my house liga with my kids and you know we go mountain biking and even with with our relationship with sony pictures. You know. they're like man. This guy's this guy's amazing. We need to get him in hollywood. So he's he's just he's great great great for our brian. We're all about having playing hard and rates and hired. We wanna have fun too. And he's got that kind of personality you know. I've always made the joke in my columns in my podcast that your truck anaheim's is like a rave you know what i mean. It looks like everyone's having a lot of fun at these rates and then there's some racing going also i sell and that was the big thing that was the big move why we moved to gas gas. It was a little bit more playful and not quite so serious and they. You know that was really excited about the models that they're coming out with a lot more plane plane models you know for the families and the wives and the and the kids electric many bikes and sure what i saw the lineup and the e-bikes that they're working on i was like man. I want to be fired of this. This is this is a good vibe is it. Is it really fits nicely. How much are you involved in. The race team does a great job. Of course he's running for a number of years. Well haunt there now. He's he's going to do a good job. But you got roger. You've got joan robert jonas in europe. You got roger pierre at the very top. Ktm how much are at a point. Pit bar how much do you check in with those guys. Or how much do you make decisions. Day to day. And that kind of stuff i imagine when i say hey you know we were looking at justin barsha you you weigh in but how much involved are you. Get the ball rolling. Let my guys try to make the decision you know. I mean i know i talked. You know i knew this. Gas gas thing was a possibility. And when i felt that it was the right time it you know my company was to be honest with you in a little bit. Most of my partners. And i think title hotel to. He was a little panicked on this because he's worked so hard to accomplish great things with. Atm thing came up. It was i remember him. Saying god is kind of like a slug in the stomach. Here man trump. What we're doing here. I want to switch to this new brand go. There's some pieces of the puzzle. Tyler feel really good to me. And i said i just want you to come in and be a fly on the wall and listen here And then i you know i had to serve it up to my board guys too and in the middle of a pandemic so it was it was it was. It was a tough project To get you know. And i had to go find some more money board members said if you can find the money some new sponsors than you know we go from three million dollar team to a five million dollars team. You know you're right. And and i i do a lot a lot of things for my gut instinct and it just felt some. I like the models and the ends the diversification of the models motorcycles and bicycles and stuff coming out with it opportunity to their marketing strategy was was on task with what we're at. You know a little bit more play playful. Because i love working hard but i wanna play really hard to china and it just was. Ktm is is a great brand. I can't thank them enough for giving us the opportunity but for us to leave this gas gas bran and i had a relationship. They were distributor in spain. So i had a little bit of love for them also in that category And i'm and. I am flying in in two weeks here flying to the tour de france. And then i'm going to girona spain to see the trials bikes built. And so i you know. I put my fingers on the water. I think i need to try to hire people. Just keep surrounding myself with great people. Tyler's been doing amazing job with the race team and my job is to make it. Look right and find the sponsorships and you know i. It's been working out well. My fingers crossed that we keep going to the next level. And you know it's gone. It's gone from a to fifty west coast. Honda team privateer to four. Fifty factory supported. Justin barsha winning anaheim team pretty remarkable pretty cool and even and even started before then with me and jeremy mcgrath and jeff ward racing. Supermodel you know yeah true. Yeah i never thought about your right. The company got a little. You know i'm like. I've got the company to a level where i'm like. I want to go back race. Jammie wanda race and forty one to race. And they're my friends and right right. No it's it's a dream. Come true i can keep keep keep evolving absolutely. Let's let's open a time machine here a little bit. We don't have a ton of time with you. So i got a lot of stuff. I wanna get to your pain helmets. You're in southern california. Paint helmets randy jefferson and different guys and and really putting yourself on the map. What makes you decide to do the first visor. And how do you do it and what comes to mind that hey man. These helmets lead to have a cooler visor. Well i think the good thing is that. I i tried to be a pro racer for a long time. And every time i got hurt just kept paying helmets know my grandfather kind of helped start started bonneville and so he was in racing and my dad ray speedway and motocross had seized kind of been born into this and when was painting the helmets. You know. I think we just did it. Look we end up doing a little cartoon video from my company on I started paying. Larry brooks was a good friend of mine and jeff ward and o'mara and i kept pop riveted the helmets. You know so. They could have them magoo. Wanted his straight up and longer and with a little art visor and you almost want to adjust your visor. Sometimes for the for the day you know. So i started making it adjustable and when i started paying how much and then i had to stick an ugly visor on just killed it. You know it's like okay. You're you're paying. You're paying really bitching car. Then you've got to put an ugly grill on it outright. And i just was really my mom too. She really helped me support me on my first mold. She's split every. My mom has been amazing. Every time i first compressor she paid half of it. You know my first molds for my visor. She paid half of it. So wow. that's cool. Really believed that she. She works for my company for a long time and believed in you know. There's a lot of things she she didn't believe in it and then she wouldn't help me but when she believe in something that i was doing she's she's she's supported it and Yeah i said. I get done painting the helmet for jeff ford and i wanted to put a cool candy. Green a green visor. And they didn't they just had one of those black ones. The snaps all wiggled around on right. So and i did the same thing. I mean duct tape and my visor on. So the thing wouldn't fly off and i might use painting you know putting gold leaf and pinstripe and things. If you gotta duck tape adviser on just kill you know so at And really malcolm smith really gave me my start. He was the first person that i carried out the visors to and He said i wanna. I wanted to distribute these for you. Try think you're onto something no way really. That's how it works. Okay yeah they were like you know ten bucks at the time advised. You could buy at the time for three dollars okay. Lot of i took it out to quite a few people there like. I don't want to buy by three dollars. Five go cool. This looks but they don't care. Yeah yeah i'd have to thank malcolm up and down for Believing in me and it was. It was nice to see the orders. Come in i really like. That's what i thought. Well maybe i'm onto something. The orders come in and he reordered reordered and started doing more colors. And then i realized shoot. Maybe i should make some. You know some some stickers and and mitch paid and made me my first truly shirts. No yeah he takes marks. I always designed all mitch and stuff for. I mean the first peak bikes and their helmets and even starting back with anti jefferson and and ashraf. And you know there's quite a few guys jeff jennings i painted. Mitch blames you for doing the t shirts with the like you. T shirts and like eight thousand eight hundred eighty nine with rj damon. And all these guys on it. But mitch says they completely forgot to ask the. Oem's if they do that he didn't blame you for that. I ask for forgiveness a lot. If he got all the paperwork. It'll never happen right so the arrow to comes out. I mean god you might. Did you sell a millionaire. Oh to troy. I mean good. God right yeah. I don't know if it's a million but we sold. I sold a lot. It seemed like you had to have one. I mean i had the original on. I bought the arrow to where my parents did anyways. And it seemed like everybody had to have that arrow to when it came out. It was the coolest thing ever really really helped selling them all to the bmx kids. And everything to okay and then. I started making advisors about mike gallons. 'cause nobody advisors for bicycle helmets. So i did one for joe mack and and you know bob role at all. The top is Back then overland and and And that kind of the bicycle market a little bit too. And i started racing. Bicycles cross country and downhill. And greg herbal and i did a little kalmyk collection with a showy which was awesome. They were good people and They came out with a jet ski helmet with visor on it. And i turned. Put a visor on it and turn it mike helmet high school so at this point when you're doing the original visor and you're doing the arrow to is that what's driving the company or rs helmet. Painting still is what drives the business at this point at a young troy designs. Or is it the visors. That are really crushing. It for you at that time. You mean yeah yeah back then me. I mean best basically yeah. Every time i got hurt. I will turn back to painting helmets and then i finally realized i'm like man i'm not going to be a pro racer. More effort ever but visors really started paying the adviser stickers for probably five years this tons of tons of stickers and and then i started doing t shirts and stuff like that The hell painting has always been one of those kind of break. Even i think today because so many indycar and nascar guys. Like at the indy five hundred. This year. I think we had one hundred and eight helmets. But why are we have one hundred. Eighty is because we do all the over. The wall helmets the guys. They're changing the tires and all that yes so And then we do a lot of the drivers but we do all. It's almost cooler seeing all the cruise. You know having our helmets on change the tires. It took me a while to get that. I really worked with one of the guys. Pinski there and we help. Finally we kept saying dry Mechanics getting hit on the indy cars were coming in. And i'm like these guys need helmets. Man these are coming up too fast. So it's kind of a dream. Come true to to get all all the mkx the wheelchairs feelers where helmets and i just love indycar. You've always been there have always been indycar guy for sure. Paul tracy did some great. How much repeal icy back in the day. Yeah it's it's it's it's fun you know. I love working in different sports. You know i love motorcross. I was thinking indycar stuff. You'd like because it was the biggest key a bigger canvas for you a little bit. You know. I don't know maybe no it's really taught me a lot on on how those guys you know. I get to work directly with fiscal guys and and chip ganassi and and how they structure their team and bringing in sponsors and and i've learned a lot on that too about bringing sponsors to my team. You know it's not true. Don't just don't look your in your ear only your motorcycle. Well you know. Look outside and try to bring atari hotels and sony pictures and span in a slot of our sponsors. Yeah i think it you know and then and then it makes all the product that we're doing. I never thought we'd be selling you know truly team product you know but it's one of our biggest things selling you know gas gas with all the sponsors on it kind of kind of indycar nascar feel you know your sure. It must pain you to see the individual helmets Go away these days truly included. You guys have your own stock paint jobs. Everybody who has a great looking stock helmet. Now you don't just by white black or whatever and the individualistic helmets. Have kind of gone away like we used to have back in the day coach. I mean it's good for business for you like you said. You're selling a ton of them but it's got a pain. You troy as an artist to not see these riders with individual paint designs. Now really it's really you know. Probably seventy percent of the helmets that come out of our go into production like this weekend. I just had them to send me right now. What I don't know if everybody knows us right now. But right now We're running in whole evil knievel kit this weekend. Okay cool it. We've paid the helmet. I'm working on a vegas a vegas kit for next year and i got octopus. All over the helmet so still drawn and we pay off one but to to make pay the bills. We need to reproduce it you know and if we just Once in a while they'll get a one off helmet painted That we pinstripe and gold. Leaf the numbers stuff but Yeah it's definitely every time we once they come up with an idea that i love. I love putting the whole package together. So we got evil knievel gloves jersey helmets and even we played with the graphics this weekend to so. That's that's really what i still love to do. It's still before. I used to just get to paint the helmet but i get to make the whole truth i. I'm hoping that my whole deal is that tv goes. Oh my god. What's troy this. So you're putting at an msa for paint for a helmet painter. Way back in the day and i'm sending. I sent my helmet to you way back in the day i sent serano. Everyone's doing custom helmets back. Then when do you. When do you look around your garage or your shop and go shit. I can't paint all these helmets myself. Like i got a hire someone. Do you remember that moment where you just had like. Six hundred helmets guys are waiting for all across the country. It started slowly. Start and then stop. I went back to fame jet skis and mailboxes. And no smoking signs at the swap. Meet and leaving my mom's house. She's got no small. I got for a while. i was doing no smoking. Signs of the swap meet. And i was killing it nice nice. I wasn't sure helmets. Wherever gonna take off that did I paint a jody wiesel. He really gave me a a good start here. I his orange helmets with the msa and he gave me a little business card ad in the back. And i do remember the day coming home and and seen in my front porch. Whoa there's like six helmets on the ports that showed up. Why because. When i was doing that i was really welding. Pipes for mitch payton okay. Yup in his parents garage and noriko. And i remember the day going into mitch. Mitch man i got enough. How much at my house. I really want. I'd love to be an artist. Maybe instead of a pipe welder. My good friend randy fleischer. I taught him how to weld. Pipes and i said let me work another guy and to help while the pipes yup and so i can so i can paint helmets and see if there's a way i can make a living painting elements. Nobody was really really doing that. You know no. I saw one ear. I saw magoo a buddy of mine. Georgia has a magoo eighteen open face and it's got to be one of your first ones. Your signature on the back is a little bit different than the as as it evolved. And i'm like this has to be an early like whatever they were. Eighty three eighty two something like that. I'm like this has gotten late choice. First helmet yeah may one but magoo as we grew up as kids northern california raising and stuff and he was the guy that really you know. He's the one that said. Put your name on the front of on you know. Put your name on it. And i'm like oh really. Oh really inspired me to put. I have won. A couple of two originals. That he's given me and i you know. The original visors hand baked in my mom's oven and I signed up with a silver sharply across the top of the visor. And wow so. And then when magoo's kept getting faster and faster and you know him. Jeff lord there's some guys that are you know paul tracy jeremy mcgrath you know. Let me just of go wild and do all sorts of things that i shouldn't do fans and flags and dingo ball right dollar bills and that leads me to my next question. Was there ever a helmet. You did for a guy that he just wouldn't wear. You said hey a warranty or check. Check this out and they were like. Yeah not roy. I'm not doing that. has there ever been one. I'm sure there have. I'm trying to think of that more more more. Like an indycar and stuff the sponsors are you know Coming to me going. Hey wait a minute. We're putting a ton of money you the law goes to cutler weird or you know and there's been some helmets that i've given riders over the years they've gone out and crashed in practice. Crashed in the main crass. I'm not wearing a helmet anymore. you know the way i kinda designed things for like the gar guys because those guys have you know. They're not going to raise enough. They're taking care of their pennzoil or target. You know so I try to start out with sponsors in place and respect their guidelines in style guides and then i said okay now we can play with the helmet and have fun with it. You know which helmets god. This is a dumb question. You've been asked to one thousand times. But i have to ask it like which ones stand out for you. I can think of a couple of ones that i'm just like some of the dog or ones late. Eighty dogar ones. Obviously jeremy couple of jeremy ones when you came within that blew. Everybody's mind about what's what stands out for. You definitely like scott russell round. I liked it because they outlawed the fans because they said they were knocking. It was innocuous a second south their lap times you know and af i am more like outlawing. The fans on the helmets you know Started in. You know john helmet for scott russell at my desk and kinda of sketch in a fan on the back And that really came from my grandfather's bonneville car nineteen forty nine. He had a fan on the back of his bonneville car. They had the belly tankers back. Then put a fan on the back of it. And i'm like oh we to put on the helmet makes them look faster. Yeah yeah so You know it's it's sometimes. It's the helmet sometimes. It's the wind that comes with helmet. You know i. I still get excited like a little kid. You know like having helium castro. Neves win the indy. Five hundred this year. I'm like yeah five hundred again sweet. That's gonna be awesome. Yeah for sure. Thanks for listening to the flyer racing.

Hope you're enjoying the podcast back to charlie. Were you get like so some years growing up. Like johnny i can think johnny and brock is two guys that would go to different painters and then come back to you over the years like did get hurt. Would that affect your personal relations with these guys. I mean your buddies with all these guys back in the day. How did how did that go for you were you. Were you pissed off for most of the time. I'm i'm pretty. I'm okay with it. You know those. Those helmets were freed. I'm like you know what if the guy can do a better job for i mean and there's never been a lack of work either you know So i mean i did it definitely respect. You know the jeremy's and warranties and those guys that have been so loyal to right but it's hard to but i'm also like best friends with those guys who so you know there are some you know i mean i'm still good friends with brockman brock. You wanna try somebody else. Go for it okay so you never were butthurt over it. It was fun. And i really have a lot of respect for all the help. Painters out there. I even feel bad. Sometimes when they would come back and we'll give the guy call. let him know. I mean like there's you know. We're doing jimmy johnson's helmets and he's been really super fun to work with them. You know he's got seven nascar championships. And i feel bad. You know he's he came to me. And i said was your painter going to be okay. I know it's a hard way to make a living painting man. I've who in the morning plenty of nights you know and So i i have a lot of respect for the artists out there you know. I think that's still look at myself as an artist And i tried to train. People as fair as possible wasn't joy. I sent my. I'm canadian and back in the day. I sent my helmet. I'm not going to give the name of the company. But i sent my home to a guy in california and i got it back and had a giant american flag on it and this is and i'm from canada and i was like yeah. This is a tough deal to pay seven hundred dollars or whatever. I had american flag on my helmet. Please tell me you didn't ever do that to anybody. So yeah now. I have done. I remember a guy. I can't even remember what it was like. Sixty eight and i ended up doing a sixty eight. I like to laugh but sixty eight one side. An eighty six on our side. Doing i'll fix it. Man my also laughing so hard to like. Oh my god was was the jt this because i have one in my studio here with jt to the coolest helmet the paint or what like come on. Yeah it was fun. I really. I just talked. Text john gregory this morning and i'm trying to on my sabbatical. I'm trying to go by his ranch and he says stop by. But i didn't realize that. I have to stop by park at the airport. He's an pick me up in his plane and then flying really did. I don't have that much time. Yeah any such a great character man. He's doing all the all the jt's wrapping around super time consuming right. It was cool stretching and making them fit all the way around then outlining even fading Yeah and he also has the coolest gear he really you know definitely. He was an inspiration to everything i do. I mean he built beautiful packages. Here's a cool chest protector. Here's the cool gear and for me for me to work on the helmets with him and even Jim hill when they were doing act. So i painted all the helmets for when he wasn't even doing helmets. Okay here just to just to work with those icons is great people. Thought i've got an original photo of dog in his bad bone stuff from jt offices that john autographed on the back. And send to me and yeah. It's like dog with his with his porn star. Mustache bipolar bad bones. Pants like it doesn't get any cooler right. Then how is mitch. Payton changed over the years. I think we've got a little bit just a little bit. We we noted outta slow. You know we. We definitely definitely pushed the envelope quite a few times together which was fun. We look back on but you know there are some times. His mom and my mom were not proud of us. He mitch told us a story about the sod. Marie calendar's railway. What i'm what i'm getting at is like you know. I know many people who wrote for mitch and worked for mitch for a long time and he was gnarly right as a race team guy like he would not be scared to tell you you or need to get better. Or there's a famous story of mailing running shoes to every rider on his team. Right now get in better shape and you try. I don't know you very well but you seem like the total opposite of team owner because when you started your as it just seems like how. Could you be such buddies with mitch. You operate in such different ways. Mitch play just as hard as i did. And he's probably just there's definitely a serious side. E okay okay. There is good to know. I know i have to be professional and we need to have all the sponsors that we have without. You know you know having a professional side of us. And i think tyler really helps you know that professional side to I know sometimes. Even tyler gets on making troy shape up. Pull this together through our it together. Yep mitch mitch's like i am any. He works really hard and plays really hard. I mean i've i wrote permit exactly. I've been zip tied and felt margaret from him. You know So toby some great stories from back in the day for sure. Yeah we we. We've we have a lot of respect for each other. You know. I love going over to and going makes you killed his tonight and i love when mitch comes over and goes joy. You deserve this. I know there's a part of that. We know that you know we. We both dig really deep and we wanna we wanna be proud of what we do right. Absolutely what product did you make. That didn't work. What product did you think was going to kill it and didn't work. Like i'm thinking of the visors that you would put on like just visor even wear around your head adviser like was there something that didn't work. Yeah i mean. I thought i would sell okay. Well i'm selling you know. Half a million of these visors there for motorcycle. Helmets should be able to sell. You know got a lot. More people in the world beat so. Yeah i started making sun visors and it was just a little bit hard because it was out of you know like all sudden a whole different distribution go to surf storage and so i go to all the jet ski races and handpainted under it by ten awning and and and we sold. We sold a ton of them to But you know. I decided i started realized a little bit. I just need this good for me to. I don't mind working weekends. And i love going to the races and that's where i wanna play so I try to play where i work. You know and then. I don't mind working on weekends and i think if you dedicate yourself and work weekends and and hang out with the right people and put the right group together you're gonna win it stuff you know so yeah i mean i try to do a mercury tail light that shut off with the mercury switch in it for for st by you know Yeah i'm sure there's something you know. I mean that's still today. I mean we're you know we we start jumping into doing you know more more clothing than we slow the clothing down a little because the helmets are going so good so that was really really good thing about when i brought some partners and they said you know you're doing one hundred things. Let's eliminate twenty of them eighty of them better and make sure their time and they kind of the numbers and showed me. Hey you're doing all this but you're not really making you know you're not making much profit on these things. All you're doing is just burning the midnight oil with you know myself and the employees here. So let's let's focus on the eighty things and do them right and cut twenty of them out and then once we get these go on we can come back and start putting some more stuff in so that's kind of what we're doing here right now. Yeah well it's working man and thanks for the time. I really appreciate it. I know you're busy. And you're on sabbatical and you're still agree to do this. So i really really appreciate it. Thanks for helping. Set this up. -gratulations man congratulations on all the success. You've had with business and the race team and everything else Yeah great long. Yeah thank you.

You know. it's been there bob. I love the guy. I don't dislike. I think he's the greatest competitive sport ever had that absolutely one hundred percent in my mind firmly. Believe that statement. I said about these modern day guys in. Switzerland are all under belgium of forty-five minutes on the same bike. You're not crazy. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better. Nowadays than they were in states there fool so different bikes. Different beasts from the east damon bradshaw. It got to the point where. I didn't want to leave home and once i got to the race i wasn't into it. I wasn't going to give one hundred percent. I'm not gonna take your money.

Jj order turned baboots. Arena across isaac. Tisdale what's up man. How are you doing well. How are you. i'm good thank you for doing this. Appreciate it nice to check in with you and see what's going on. Yeah i'm super thanks. I've never been a part of this. I'm super excited. Yeah no worries. Hey so all right so we came back for. Jj are no supercross deal for you. This year twenty twenty one so you had it to arena cross for the baboots guys. What was that decision like. did you want to. Obviously supercross is awesome. But how did it come down for you to choose arena across. Yeah for sure that was. That was a bummer. With the team situation you know everybody sort of knows how that all went down and it was. It was hard for me. Because i thought i had another like The contracts coming you know. I was going to be a part of the team. Gets you continue to grow. Because i was really like my first experience being on a team mike that and putting in the effort and really needed to succeed and i feel like my results. Were like pretty good. I thought for me. Like obviously my first time linking rookie. Even though i've done it before and so kind of coming down the end of november at that time everybody else's full all the teams. And i was calling people and always really nobody had any availability and as i am. I going to have to move on to something else. I called danny up at babson. He said yeah we interested and then he'd never never called me for a few weeks. Oh the end. And then he called back. I was actually. I was about to apply for a leasing non. An apartment to go home. My buddy bill timber frame homes okay. Then he called me. And i was like we're gonna keep bracing. That was really the main thing is like my only option ago race arena across right is that's where i kind of got my feet wet in the sport and just because so we had gone four sided that for about three years. I'd say then moved on up made to super crossing right. And that's where we're at. I feel like quietly. You've had some good results you know you're quiet guy you don't get a lot of press but you certainly had some impressive outdoor stuff and indoors went pretty well for you to at time. So yeah like i definitely i mean did i think you might have even reach out to me. I know you guys did. i like. There's nothing available right not the jager thing though. I do feel like bone in talking to him. In the off season you know they were being pretty honest. A mart and stuff did they. Were going to be part of a low not a low level. That's the wrong way to say it. But like i to lower-tier effort from them the whole time like i feel like you mentioned that you didn't quite know until late but i felt like they were letting people go. No no no. They're super open with us. Yeah we kind of had hope for me like you're part effort like that and you don't want to leave you know and and so we were kinda just waiting on the till the last second ship was sinking. But it was kinda interesting. I never understood why. It's kind of under the radar whole career. Just how it went. Yeah yeah is that way for some guys and other guys aren't maybe need to be a flashing. Maybe who knows. I don't know maybe he agent or something. Yeah so. I thought man. Hey so the bat. We'll get to crossing a little bit. I wanna talk to you about that. Because i was just i just did one of these with tyler bowers to and we. We got into it a little bit with him. Buddy yeah yeah you buddy so. Gr was that you were linked to the casino. You knew some people there casino sponsor. That koi talked to me a little bit. They were trying to do some. You know be with the gives fedex the casino and and it was going to be tied into supercross motocross team. Where does that come from. Can you explain that a little bit. Your part of that is. It's pretty interesting because most people don't know i'm actually native american. Yeah about a quarter. My my is actually full blooded. He's my mom's side but he married like an irishwoman. So that's why. I'm white not must have been pretty scandalous back in the day. Maybe i don't know it's kind of funny because back on in the community where i grew up always made fun of me like i said. I didn't cook long enough in the and you're like man toss. Yeah yeah so so. That's kind of how it all started with. jade york. got my foot in the door. Okay because what the casino. Not people are is actually. It's actually not really the casino tribal government they're kind of separate kind of what gathered thus for So i know basically you have the tribal councils kind of party. They represent from each community around the nation. The guy who was representing us he was like my basketball coach football coach and we kind of got talking with them. Kinda just abroad different ideas. That could possibly happen. And so whenever. Jeremy and the others heard about that kind of opportunity for us to explore those options in the. Actually things are still going on with that. It's a little too late as the main sponsor but right there's a lot of cool things going on there so yeah koi koi. When the team was over he was like no no. I'm i'm talking to those guys. We're working together. We're going to try to help them. They're gonna try to help us like it wasn't he wasn't quite wasn't like i was motorcars team. Boss like this could be something on the road so off. And you know when san manuel sponsored james's team for all those years and chad's team like you said the council they don't just want to write a check and then that's it. They want to help their people and help their their tribe. And they're the people on reservations or whatever so there was a lot of the things to do to try to tell help the people out a little bit and it involves more than just writing a check. So that's where. I think you're came in where they were like. Hey man this guy. You know part native american and we can help him reach his dreams. I guess right now that's really true. That's there's a lot of issues that are in the trouble in the community. I'd say a lot alcohol and drug abuse out ends as well as a lot of people don't really leave the community. And so it's kinda you just kinda stuck and so with the gibbs operation. They also do a lot of outreach. The different communities that are involved in and so the idea was to to do something similar to that as well start this business than kind of provides a way that could kinda give the students to to look outside of just being stuck in. The community is kind of cool for me personally. Like is funny growing up. I was kinda got picked on. Not necessarily i made friends with my all my buddies but i was just kind of just part of the of the community just a regular kid and now i go back since i'm on. Tv's i've actually come. Hollywood and stuff like that so people look ups you so that's pretty pretty cool for sure. Well hopefully we don't wanna get you wanna give back to community. That's for sure. So with the gibbs there's this awesome group of people. They are coy anyway kidding. But i've seen them not very much though. Don't like around tours. When we have people up. I was always the apartment. He's so busy. I really got to hang out with them. Be sounds really cool. I was just there. And he didn't see 'em either. I was leaving and i saw him and he's like he was like people. You have chops. Yeah he sees. You still have a job. And i'm like yeah i still. I still talk. Shit on riders. He's got an amazing. Anybody would listen to you and then he just kept walking on then you just walking so it was amazing. That's how it sounds. Sounds like my kind of guy right right. So babs kawasaki for rain across the kicker arena. Cross series you got third and both and four fifties. I talked to. Peter is a little bit about this. Obviously he had a great year. You know the tracks are are made for amateur so for guy like you or or kp. There's not much to it but did you make some money. Did you enjoy yourself. Yeah dude that was kind of a bummer. Going into it because i want to be balancing. Kp for the winds. And you know. Because he's he's obviously fast has lock experienced and i actually did that series a couple years ago as well as arena cross. So i thought. I thought we'd be bailing and then actually the week before My bike died over. Supercross triple like yeah and it was a bone side. bike was suspension on it pushed through the triple. The clutch hit the brake. I guess the clutch I engage disengaged. Whatever you're supposed to do killed landed right on my chest with my arm up and do that was was actually. Probably my scariest wreck had yeah is. There is like gurgling lungs when i first rolled over shoe. I think i messed up my rotator cuff. 'cause i couldn't lift my shoulder a very high and so i was riding with that for the whole season except for the last round so honestly i'd probably sixty percent the holy season so i mean i was just out there. I was really battling so. That was really the bummer about it. All but yeah. We had a great time travelling racing. Ceo mile bio buddies. the results. not. Necessarily what i was wanting especially after after last year. Making those steps. That i did. So did you enjoy the experience. Was it cool was it. Yeah did you enjoy it. Yeah man we it's a cool community is very different than supercross. It's obviously everybody's more chill. I'd say and and you get to know everybody from the tv crew to all other writers and everybody in between it's definitely just a very different environment but you learn a lot especially like that tight racing. It's a good elbows. Get into any battles people. Be ozzy was slamming me. The last voters may i think he put a hole in his case. Yeah he came in does pretty hot heated but we were having good battle. Just out is right on the track though. And that's what happened. But i didn't know i about mechanics. Made picture of his engine after after the last rows like dang man hit me hard man so eight hundred for a teammate there for a little bit Yeah that's pretty cool. You here early stories and i was checking out suspecting something totally different. He's i mean he's cool. Like i wanted to offer him. I think he's definitely misunderstood in. The sport am is his family. He's a bit of a different guy but he's really not sure he's really nice win. Yeah yup absolutely right. I know stank dog. Welcome to the series. I saw that. I saw you miss. I mean you won't see some stuff that happened behind the scenes really. Oh god like like with each other in the pitch will not stinky was against the less. Good times. Gal come on man. So how's the ne- u. c. l. You gotta fix. You missed a lot of time. How is it now good. Yeah yeah actually. I entered it probably a couple of years but i did. My mc l. in in the dallas last year. Oh okay yeah. I actually tried to race since everybody else got hurt. You know if you remember that rallied. Everybody else on the team got hurt and we didn't really know it was wrong. My knee i was like dude sums not right. Jeremy like you can raise you. I love you too because you're only contracts go out there and so i rolled around. I think i can only doubled the jobs but my knee was all over the place super pain and now's it for the supercross series but man. I was also bombed because i qualified six. In the first qualifying session I'd missed the rhythms on mcmahon. We're finally making steps next practice. Bomani out done for the year and then the else got hurt. And so the guys. I was kinda around. We're like getting podiums and top. I'll see that's like career change and stuff and dismissed on that. I feel like you got. I feel like when you were in soupy. You've got better and better a little bit. Were getting better. You're figuring out. I felt like you were getting better. I've never done that right. So he came back for the nationals last year later in the season. And how was that man. There was sweet. I actually got on the on the race bike like a few days before millville which was the first round. I've been riding a bone sox four fifty so there's a big difference between a factory engine and tuned bike to soccer so honestly i had arm pump for about three days gin house. Hold onto that thing. Then the next round got to twelfth overalls talks fifteenth in orlando a colorado. I was pumped happy with that. Yeah yeah no. I almost got talked. Tins last rows. First time actually riding in california but with suzuki's we're working on the setup. We'll talk to set the puppies up but the last round start dialed in. I think i was like negative of frame or something like okay. I was trying to get the bug. Feel away you know right right. So that's for your taller guy right. You're tall or you're not called. You're you're you definitely short. I'm six feet. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah so interesting that you couldn't so they felt stink bug to you. The bikes did for me. I don't know. I think as my way transfers from other people's different maybe were you. Were you working with freddie a little bit to try to figure out what he what he liked and everything else kind of was the one test. I was just kinda settings because there is kinda late in the year. And i didn't have time. Testing is kind of run off his setup making some adjustments. It's pretty cool like learning all that side of things being around the team. Saint louis commuter bike man. It's kind of unbelievable. Yeah those guys and all those guys were pretty good. Dude's pretty smart guys. That had to be really cool for you to to ride for team like that. Oh yeah unbelievable. It's like a dream. Come true for sure and a bummer. To see bummer to see them go away man. I've always said that. I'm man of jr. Can't get a sponsor were in a bad spots. We're in a really bad spot. Yeah you've been there. Obviously you were there a couple of others this last week and believe it is like i was i see nascar. You don't really know what that even means. you like. Nascar you pull up to the shop. You're like oh my goodness this is what takes like. I'm not enough at all. But i'm not going. I'm like this is a damn serious effort. Yeah i was like a bad. I didn't really know anything about nascar. Okay yeah looking around there. Yeah i is. E tisdale on the ethics are racing race tech suspension. Privateer idolize podcasts pulp. Twenty-one is a co to save with rates tech get your motor work done get suspend work done service your bike a little bit. So it'll help you out and just tell you. Listen to max and race. Tekla help u. f. fx are of course filthy filmmaker. Big efforts are guy. Tisdale out there as well as the club. Guys of course affects our public mixed thirties. Code to save with ethics are designed by racers for racers. Also wanna give a shout out to amirah firepower. Max's andrew stem ex all onboard with us in the mirror since two thousand one. But it's applying factor level pistons and gaskets for every make a model from two wheels to four from weekend warriors. The top athletes mirrors advanced. Piston technologies increased engine performance and reliability without increasing your budget money or online mirror dot com to learn more about that. So isaac for you getting on a what. What'd you think compared to zouqi. I know there are smaller. They probably felt narrower. All that what you think of the county actually. I was impressed to be honest. Just kind of the base level you know. Just just how the chassis felt offset could tell a little difference there but yeah. We didn't really get too much testing. Because i got hurt so they guy rode the bike of time but honestly i feel like i had a lot of potential. So that's how it was cool. Man jeremy's bus jostle at sponsor. So i know right after that. Nobody had more logos in. Jj are on their buying. Nobody no team jerseys man. It's like bright snow. Hit us even the history of this at more. And i'm just like what the hell jay bone. He called me the next day. And he's like bust your balls on my. I'm like yeah. No problem i go. I was just surprised you took that that way. But it's not just once. yeah. I know. I know he's going. Hey so where would you. Where would you practice for arena cars. Do you have some place you would go. Where would you right. yeah actually. I made a transition down sandbox. Okay yeah that was pretty cool. Because i made a pretty good friendship with alex trotman. Yep protein dot com trying. Jane blog for a little bit the one. I love this skinny white boy you asked me but yeah i was actually really pumped about that. Because he knows just all the writers down here being in florida is like the like the weather in the area saas. Pompton then got hurt. So they're really gets arrive very much there but they're super cool and well weaving deducted when you say you got hurt you did that crash right and all that but but but then you refine the week because it was not no. I wasn't writing during the week. I was just going racist shit. I didn't know this okay. So your shoulder was was jacked up and it's still bad so okay. Well that leads me my next question. So are you going to do any nationals. Do you have any plans. I guess not. Oh my shoulders my shoulders. Good now i like. There's no opportunities for me honestly. I'm talking to one team but there again working with the budget stuff and the can't find a sponsor and honestly. I'm like to that point where i'm not trying to figure out what's what the next step is as bad as sim really sad. Because i mean. I feel like i was going on. I don't feel like. I really reach potential so till i walk away and after you bill these connections of friendships and finally make pope stuff. I guess the walkaway like man right. It's kind of hard. Well you know. Hey look like the city. The season starts in colorado goes sorry goes to california that starts in goes starts in california goes to colorado. You get the first east coast you know. Put the money into it and if you feel like you could be like. Hey guys here i am. If there's a spot open knowledge someone can go. Hey tisdale just went. Thirteen thirteen out of a van. Or whatever you know. So there always is that i for right where you're just like. Hey i can. Maybe open some eyes. Because i feel like i feel like outdoor results have been pretty solid. Yeah and that do. That's the hard part is like. I've always grown up. I grew up in the mountains. North carolina in my dad built tracking is like super tight and so not do a racing like the rain across series. So i feel like i should be more technical writer not feel like i could be pretty a lot better. Supercross would never really worked out but the outdoors. I mean i was pretty obvious last year. I think i think the last motor there was. I think there's one guy and then the rest like championships past champions right. You'd think about it absolutely not for sure. Right did you make did you make any money in arena. Cost was it was an okay. How's it purse bonuses. Yeah the person wasn't too great. I think as a lot of it had to do with the fans in each state you know being knocked down. The team part was pretty good. I mean that whole aspect was good right but the person money wasn't really amazing. Bonuses from your team. Or i don't even know how that works right. Yeah well. we only had championship boston okay. Jt kind of locked up young went undefeated that man. The moment i had. I had them for like half the race. I are tired. Obama intensity and the man. He's just he's rippin. You could have actually the man to ruin the streak. That would've have been great. Yeah actually actually did that with oland last year or two years ago so i was talking about it. He was close to that too. And i was talking to. I was talking to Bowers about arena cross. He told me the hoosier series. He thinks the hoosier series will be the one to emerge from the to. Do you know anything about those guys. I just know one time. I showed up in race with us Okay i'll never actually went and did one of those. I know that there's i feel like they're totally different. Track designs are different But who knows is we have no idea from that. They're both on on online televised stuff like that. I don't know why like. I didn't really dig into it but powers thinks that who's your thing will be pretty good. So what the of to see for guys like you're still going. Is he gonna do that or what it sounded like he. You know it's a while it's a ways away. But he sounded like he needs to get ahead and make some money in he looked. I mean peterson. Well like from all people you know that he he made while he told us on the show. He didn't even make fifty k. But then i heard from people that know him that he did so. I don't feel like he probably did to me on this right right so he probably doesn't want anybody coming over and poaching wrote it won't show up. You know exactly right totally firepower parts. Speaking of maxis tires the s gb. Max kawasaki team. They use firepower batteries and chains over there. They got oil as well. The folks that firepower over fifty years experience industry firepower commits to quality value. Service for your machine. They offer made in japan. Feather-light lithium batteries and oil to send the test of any power sports vehicle parts dot com. Go there learn some more about those guys and they support a lot of privateers and everything else. So so were you. Born and raised in north carolina western carolina. Okay so growing up like you go to. Loretta is a lot or how did that. Go for now actually. That's probably why. I went on the radar to be honest. Actually diggle the res- but another interesting stories. My dad was born in africa so he came back to the states. And he's like. I think he was fourteen or something and then he got into motorcross when he probably nineteen by a friend in town so he didn't really understand really the motocross scene. And what you have to do and so we were just kind of go. Hit one one race every now and then just mostly do local stuff. And then i think when i was on eighties first time caller Or two okay. I went over to two fifty. Four of you be in classes. I went to rain across did honda. I feel like you wrote hondas when he first turned pro. Phoenix actually. okay. Yeah yes i think. I remember that i was like. Oh who's this guy. Yeah so your dad born in africa. When does he does he meet your mom when he when they came to the states. He actually moved to obviously the town. I grew up in. Why did he move on the. How do we go from africa to the town. Yeah he My grandparents were were missionaries overseas. They came back to the states. Okay and yeah. Basically teach and they were going to open a training facility for like long term missionaries like basically live anywhere and help the community i community development kind of stuff and and they ended up getting land in on the reservation there and they my mom in high school actually okay. So yeah school. Sweethearts and the rest is history from their scouting crazy. Honestly so i'm like totally right. Native african american really right always. I native african american. Whatever you want to whatever the proper term is yeah. Exactly right okay. So that's how you got into into right into writing and all that and an interest works. Yeah yeah so honestly. I played other sports growing up like basketball football right or most often. I race on the side and then since i was home schooled. They wouldn't let me play in high school so she kept racing. The we ended up processing. So who was your amateur rivals. Then who was in your class. Growing up writers other riders. I mean that's the crazy part is like that's one. Verboten was still the big thing back in the day in. You'd watch all these kids and like man. There's like superheroes going so fast. And all this stuff. I go to like a a bigger event and i'd see him. I'd be like riding like a squirrel that i'd be pretty close. Yeah just kinda like my heroes are my same age i remember. I don't know if you remember donny. Round he's like a local no gains. Okay we're pretty close okay Yeah kind grew up with those guys and obviously all the major ones now. I think i raised. I think i raised cooper web wants since real smith But they're different low level back then. actually justin cooper that's the thing in arena across is like this is the one that is dominated that one year kind of started the year before in cross like we were battling god win. You win bribing me now. He's like killing it. Like jeez you just kinda think you should be there. You know what i'm saying. So that's kind of hard. Yeah no absolutely him. he's been crushing it right. I think you'll get it done by. I do too. Yeah he's twenty points up what do you. What do you like to do for training. What do you like to do. Well actually got hooked up with john wesley trainer to your actually Seth was actually my first trainer. Will actually i worked. Rob beams okay for a couple of years. Then i moved on to seth when i was on phoenix On the in that really like the first time. I really understood like all the effort that went into it. Don't realize like the grind that we have to do in the house. He put in. And then with wesley. He kind of helped dollars in for me in and work with me closely. We kind of looked at the heart. Rate kind of educated mean. I learned so much so right now. I do a lot of off the bike stuff with cycling in the gym. Yup do skier and rower stuff like that. But honestly i enjoy cycling riot eight running but i get running done. Yeah you gotta do it right man for sure right now. It's interesting It really really different unique path. You took to being a pro moto guy like really different. Oh yeah honestly. I shouldn't i feel like. I shouldn't be where i was honestly like remember the first time. I saw chad at the track with me. I'm like dude. This is pretty wild here. Because i remember when we go to we go to atlanta supercross and obviously their crushing evacuate the day when i was a little punk just like every other month across does oh how funny out riding cycling with them right our. He hit me up and and talk with me. It's just it's just crazy cool up. Was it cool was it. Yeah i remember at the track me the whoops and things like that and actually got hurt in dallas he was talking about house hitting the whoops super good and then i decided to jump them. And that's the reason why hormones brought that up. You know. Rene yeah yeah he he was telling me don't dump the whoops and then i decided jumping mike. Nydia kinda ruined. My career would say jeez. Yeah come on man. I know as i i kind of joked man. If i didn't listen you could have could have been racing man. So what do you are you single or do you live down for by yourself. You gotta check or what. Yeah that's the other thing. I just got married the first of the year. Oh no way so that had some some stress right now is like you think you're going to be racing bike still making a living you know so we can be comfortable not out in the street and then that kind of gets ripped away from you but you already moving donald this step and like oh snap so change it for the world. It's just kind of adds a different perspective on life. Yeah finley you're going to make a living you gotta support so that that's kind of that's why it's harder now for me. Just trying to figure out that in the best option will both of us are. But what does she do. What is she working towards. She's a hairstyle. Ok yeah so a solar late from all our clients rotterdam back now. She's in the process of that like trying to figure out. She was deliver clientele here. What if you have to get a job. That's where your work. You'll base yourself out of florida or what are you. What are you thinking. You know well if that if that thing with the. Jr in the tribe goes through. That seems pretty interesting. Gig for me. Being involved in that. Because i kind of both parties and in kind of a lot people on both sides said or here. I have a lot of friends in florida's. Oh yeah it seemed like right. The future probably here the only thing about the j. gr thing is like sold it. They sold everything. And i'm like what if you wanna get back in and j boonsak now. Of course it will buy more will buy it again crazy all right. No big deal right yeah. I'm just like okay. Like yeah because they didn't close the door on coming back a team and maybe the casino. The tribe has something to do with that. You know. I don't know but they didn't the door on it you know so. Yeah i mean. That's that's cool. I sport or sure right needed. Oh hundred percent right so maybe some nationals this year. You'll see that's that's where we're at. I'd love to. It's it's it's hard to figure that out though right now. I'd love to race. If i can figure out the sport i've been calling people thinking lined up but did you call jason's team. Did you call them now. I didn't i don't know he talked to me before. Okay and said he didn't have things figured out yet. Well you talk them. I'll send you a number you can. You can ride over there for sure. I mean you're better than era outdoors logo and also you'll save on parts. Yeah i know that will be good. Maybe he's got money. I'll send you number or i'll i'll reach out to him and put in a word for you know as far as giving you shot at any money but it'll be expenses paid and you can get colleague at tennessee purse money you know. Maybe i don't know so know you never never quite know. What was your favorite national track. What's your favorite one man. So growing up so on tight tracks. I wasn't a huge jumper And so when i first went to ironman dude distract i'm gonna i'm not gonna like displace but for whatever reason man that's probably one of my favorites. Not sure why. The roots i like. I like dry really gnarly coast in you coming out for sure. Yeah i guess so. Yeah i haven't really read. But that much i once the triples free sick fun at a wide open on the forfeit. Just close your eyes the first time he did it. Did you follow somebody in practice. Or what would you do. I actually think i saw. I'm because i'm pretty pretty good. By henry miller. Not he actually.

HQ In corona you know you walk in and get some like friends Matin Josh Martelli out at their compound with two Brian Deegan for free day I spent some time at deacons place and then you know and we'll talk about that more but oster on this one place is pretty insane but we're able to record our first episode thank you guys like that so did that that's another project going you know we're trying to crank up the youtube channel stuff conditions right just because you can't run the fast line anymore you know doesn't mean the racist garbage it means you adjust your line I mean NASCAR think monster I'm gonNA give the edge to monster on this one you know I don't I don't have any affiliations either which way cycle spade a spade but as far as corporate gyms go yeah I'm going to side with him I mean it just got so rutted and it was deep boulder starting to come up massive massive ruts and when I talk routes I mean we're talking like mid four hundred with Degan dropping Jonathan I think he and I are going to start our own youtube channel for that but yeah it's it's been a bit of fun stance I'm like this is off road racing short course desert racing it's still off-road right and I think as long as everybody was racing the same track you got a I goes away like it did at Glen Helen goes away it went away like literally throw this thing in file thirteen dumpster trash can type of thing this wasn't anything Lucas Oil Fund you know we talked everything from he's Kinda Geeky guy like me where we we still like pop culture and and video games and things like that so he gets together and you never setup who can drive the course the best you know what I mean like anybody's fast one is a perfect track who's fast one it's a horrible track and you know changed corners cut out portions of the track and added new ones it was really really cool I think a lot of the drivers didn't know what to expect and I think a lot of the data did wrong it was just conditions whether the amount of rain a lot of factors you know went into play you know but that's the hand that was dealt this weekend where the conversation is going to go to movies or gaining or whatever so our shows tend to do really really well we'll do a mash up on on project action together so we of the two strokes coming back with Toronto always as always back flipping and having a good time and doing Travis Pastrana things as I like to say but I love the throwbacks a two stroke bikes and so I think I really really enjoyed that I think it may add this other layer of depth to the racing weekend not only that but Glen Helen it's been kind of the same way out for a while Dan and I love it when it's less than ideal conditions because I feel like then you get a real glimpse of who is the absolute best who can adapt who can change the here too the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor are you looking for a place to push yourself behind the wheel and see how your driving skills stack up dirt this rally school is that crazy crazy calling cards you know that we used to use you could charge long distance calls to this this Debit card thing ish that you could buy for blue weeks then yeah last weekend I can't even I gotTa talk about this looks so offroad racing series host livestream out there at Glen Helen two days in a row and obviously Jeremy McGrath's you know I know rox wearing the one eight hundred collect ish stuff instead of one eight hundred rocks in one eight hundred collect I remember when that was the thing things I think he had to be very smart about the way you approach the pass but yeah it was it was good stuff out there at Glen Helen Man for the fans that did come out you know it was ruts in the corners like you guys weren't even the back and slide it anymore because a Rut Scott so haggard and I know a lot of guys are complaining about it and I took the the complete different I don't know every track's different you know we can't have you know you know two hundred foot wide you know tracking every single location it just doesn't happen but I think they're still passing opportune awesome I know Red Bull straighter also going on same time it was packed weekend and so cal and I got to give a big shout to Kenner Oxen who ended up taking twenty bucks at the grocery store or the convenience store yeah whole different Arab man complete different era but yes straight rhythm you know it was great to see Roxana one hundred percent calm the drop of the gate at a one here next year and I am really really excited about that you WanNa talk about layers in motorsports that adds another and set up like you know adjust and change it up I mean you know and I think you know a lot of people are saying it's one lane it's this it's that you know and any car that way why does

T. Yeah that was the thing then some younger listeners listen to show you probably like scratching your head like that was the thing I remember when payphones were fire to the supercross title not but you got all the writers coming up and all the new changes I think it's going to be a good time but we're gonNA take a short commercial breaks going to be Brian Deegan when we return part of the show we immediately started talking about Pastrana because that's deacons first guests on his new show they're on podcast one and Kinda steamrolled for there so this is a ten minute teaser I xe games in so many good stories you know and I was able to guys like Jesse James who helped build on my dirt bikes which is pretty cool and I kept them all because I knew one day those jokes it'd be the weekend we got him as a guest on the show this week but Glen Helen you know say you know it's like conic but we'll talk about some good racing man that course so we had moments where I hated to do like literally like I'm like I hated it that he beat me all the time and and he was the good guy we were the bad guys with the militia and it just kinda played now that I look back at it but it was it was real and then it kind of handout over the years right and Chavis you had to respect the guy because he's just that gnarly precision like that's mind blowing because I know like for the longest time people thought you guys hated each other and this and that and I like I see so many parallels between you guys and family men now if you ever had an athlete contract says in there if you get arrested for something like a felony right they can take your contract but I put in there so you know it was cool to be able to have him on the first episode of the Deacons podcasts I just thought that was a perfect way to start it you know and episodes zero will be I feel like some of us that upbringing you know and like you said that blue collar work ethic like I know me like even to this day I do pretty well for myself obviously I think all of us sitting here do well for ourselves but like chances and not wanting to go back in the end of the day I think it's still happening to this day I still have that drive of like small town kid trying to go against the odds perfect and with X. Games and TV and in the beginning yeah we really did have issue I think you know but he was a young kid I think we're just being being haters you know but it's my dream to California really didn't have money came out here to chase pro motocross career I didn't make it in motocross and went into freestyle motocross and took a lot of chances and help build actions in this amazing shop here I mean we've got X. Games the west coast choppers bike like to me that's like the bike that I always like I can't believe I'm moving man 'cause like this pick one bike I wanted like in my collection that'd be it but like I mean it's part of you look back on this kid that grew up in the mid west and go man like who who would ever thought you now it's crazy a and I can't believe all the people I've met a lot of my heroes you know like a lot of my heroes when I was a little kid pictures of Ricky Johnson on my Wall Jeff Ward now those calls said Noah asked to be convicted of a film anyway militia days and I mean we rolled up here in the first time I've been your compound in I think Josh has been here you guys did was like yard work yard work together something like that do like I roll up a you know that's the thing about I did a documentary you know not not less than a year ago with politics in that documentary explained you know where I came from in a small town in Nebraska cheese ask and so we're starting to break them out now but the story goes you know is coming from a small town in not taking no for an answer in going against the grain and take it and things like that I mean we want people to listen to but that would have been fun conversation for ut ass L. for sure you know I thought about okay this is my opportunity right that can happen you talk about small town and I know like I'm from a small town matt you guys are small town you're or Matin Josh but it's like on that also which describes who we are if you don't really know about my family I haven't followed us on social I think there'll be a good who we are you know what I'm talking about your family do yeah because it's in my contracts right if I start losing deals but it's pretty funny like I'll let it out of the bag but like the in contracts ah obviously things have changed with family but it's cool 'cause it my my era I was able to be a racer supercross dead serious about racing winter free damn you know all the time we talk all the time never would I thought when a little kid those are my heroes it'd be my friends right so but that just in reality shows that it can happen Oh you Brian is you've you've kind of turned into a pretty awesome inspirational dude man a lot of your posts are is not honest like because I didn't have kids you know and so once I had kids I started man everything I do or say is influencing the youth and then I'm just raw aggression anymore I think it's like a settled in like fatherly kind of advice it's really cool to see is somebody who has a kid too entire slain into two hours a week sit back strap in and be prepared to get your ears glow here is Jim beaver and scared like to me like at some point the rugs GonNa be pulled out from under me so it's like you still to this day it's like you have the drive to do to do more and go farther you know it's interesting I think about that raise me I was focused on racing in that's all it really mattered to me and then I you know I as I grew up in the went through X. Games and it was really about me my buddies in we're being rebel guide watch my kids get influenced by other people such as musicians or different things that I'm like man I don't really want that like certain things that are bad and then I started saying you know what that's we were partying and being crazy sentence image of the militia next games in and then went back to racing and then family but it's kind of cool because even I still to this day probably not good for me to do things that can influence kids in a bad way even it does happen you know I'm human but overall I said if I have this this platform and hi can help people get better on their bad days and that's cool right 'cause I've been in that position you know of people having the bad days or or struggling to make success any kind of went to party guy when we went to good guy and it's just cool whatever he's late bloomer party guys still there it's cool to point to that and go yeah look at what this deeds doing with his family bank said it's cool because growing up like I said I my dad on the same thing you know a lot of guys in the sport I think that they've matured they've got married started families now they're they're putting that energy back out there in a positive ben and I just felt like if I could help people with that that's cool so anyway that's kind of a thing that's just naturally progressed I guess I know it is really cool and and travel way it's cool to see which I mean you could go many different ways right but Chavis Chavis had his moments right he was good goody a good guide besides screw up and have my bad days but I'm still always can just blame it on the militia right I ask Cilicia one thing I've noticed yes and and we don't really care what influence we had on people like we really were doing you know gnarly things and you know and I didn't really think about the kids to be it's quite as public a couple of weird rally talking but is cool because he's the father now he has kids which a lot of us are now so we lot how our fathers married or have kids and there's more life than just us now so it's a different way way of looking at it talking about that I think one of the cool things you know is I know Josh right here right now to day on the show you don't WanNa miss that it's coming up right after this on the down and dirty radio show powered by polaris razor most of it so when it comes time to relax on the weekend nothing is better than taking time with my family in our razor vehicles they've got the reliability I need to just pick up and go explore the desert dunes or you and have the capability to attack even the harshest terrain if you're looking for some of the most reliable and safest and hands down most capable off road machines in the world further than Polaris in their award winning lineup of razor vehicles whether you want your daughter to experience opera driving for the first time in a razor one seventy like me take the entire family out completely changed man yeah it's different you know and like our big moments were X.

got you on the show in good reason man dude coming out of nowhere what you am which is SPEC engine little smaller block and so when I decided we're going to Crandon for the fiftieth I was like all right the answer is no I you know I promised myself you know look you know my career and you know my story I've raced race motor and knock out a whole like talking about your whole career spanning you can't do that on the national show but I'm like wheels are already clicking man yeah well this is a nice you know it's I think just at this point the world is so media driven and we have some different style things we can do shooting videos and on a decided all right this'll be the last year they'll chase points and then for nineteen season figured all right let's work on the truck get it ready They have like you said they have the new recycles race trucks raised a little bit of everything my whole life and I just as soon as I stopped chasing championship I just said look we're GonNa do stuff that makes sense stuff that we can do aww guys kind of move into to something like that you know it's you've been on the road for your entire life whether it be chasing supercross motocross titles and then obviously you know you'd mentioned there with one of those things I know that in the in the future they're going to be moving everyone's probably going to be moving down to the small engine and and the whole class will be together again which which racing it'll be just crazy insane again but and you know we can all sort of think Kim block for that kind of avenue that we've been using lately and you know so I'm not sure you know I'm not sure often in my truck and we went out and tested a few times and got it sorted out and I was like oh the things pretty good and but yeah I mean to be able to sweep the week and I hadn't ready my wheels are already turned in I know like this this past week I went out and spent spend a day with the Brian Deegan and we sat down we talked for like almost an hour and a half two hours on his whole career weekend you can just show up three or four times a year in and have some fun and you know you can run up front to me it's got up maybe it's a little more fulfilling that way too order like we had used in the past so it was time to change up and train and went well so we were like all right well let's let's take this team to go in and see how it goes and obviously I was pretty good last weekend was was great and and to be able to just have a nice weekend like that and be able to walk away and go all right let's what's our next plan and we Wanted to raise Glen Helen and it went well and so she everyone can sit on that one for a while you know well and you think that's you know I know you see things like that and been fortunate to be able to do that Kim Block and Pastrana and I'm Mike now like now you're GonNa get a text from me Jeremy when do we get to knock this deal out I want to come and like sit down and bring a film crew I I mean you can't dream those kind of weekend so We went day but our plan was never to go to Arizona you know our plan was never to get make it to the finals the next get that podium and the cup race was just I mean way more than we ever expected so but I knew we had a fast-track so it was just get some good Kaluka sell off road racing series sweep in the weekend man I know you had a good run at crandon how fortunate to be able to call that but I mean I know where this whole to pro to and so I had the opportunity to raise a few times and you know I can imagine I mean I remember my first time on there I was just like what the world is crazy arts and see if we can lead laps and and that's what we did so it was great we can I mean when you go to Cranston versus everything else you're Kinda like wow when I went there my my I was ready to run up front and that's what we did and almost I mean we got two out of the three races that we we raised however many years but I just don't think you can get that type of facility anywhere out west so I mean yes crandon is a monster awesome track awesome aces back there and stuff but it's dude is is an Arizona boy going back there to to watch that it's got to be a little bit insane man well I mean certainly last week and was super fulfilling I mean I hadn't raced my truck in eight months and with the exception of driving a crane and a couple of weeks before so I'm not sure I've ever done that of course oh it was pretty pretty amazing weekend well that's going to be pretty cited we're going to see you in Phoenix at the finale now I mean the Cup races are limited race but just to be able to go there and see that property and be able to drive there and and see those kind of speeds with that kind of crowd and I mean that that's I and both days and I mean the guys I normally raced with I never even saw weekend so that was that was pretty crazy and you know well you know if you don't if you remember years ago wasn't I mean I knew I'd always wanted to get back to crandon but it wasn't I wasn't sucks I think for our team and our partners we can get more eyeballs on just doing one off stuff and you know last weekend gun homes crazy we went out and won the race quality and I think it's you know like hey if we can have some fun and and go do it that's what we're GonNa do and you know we came on had a phenomenal weekend it was yea that's a good feeling I gotta go back too you'd mentioned krant and how was that I've been fortunate to pass three years to be able to kind of call you know running seven years in pro too but you feel like that's you know there's I don't know to me there's probably a little bit more happiness in that right where you're not having to worry about getting Ryan Yeah Yeah it's funny I was just talking to my the guy that runs my team he's like you've been super busy this week and it's funny you know I think that I'd on the West Coast we have a lot of action we have a lot of racing lot of desert racing and even you know we've had short course over the last you know that's exactly why we all you know yeah well it's funny you talk about the facility as I've driven back through the campground and stuff like it just keeps going deeper and deeper into the woods aside from Kelley and it's the introductions ingrate so in fact I'm sitting here looking at one right now I picked up mine yesterday and it's GonNa go get by side you know you you pick up any itch to do a little side by side race and maybe the well you know what certainly the door is open now right official water on this last trip because I had raised for Johnny Greaves in the Monster Team Years back maybe nine years ago I started racing trucks.

and figure out who was going to be on rain awhile and got this crazy point about going on over there but good news is I guess NASCAR racing but we had more traditional our traditional action think ten thousand finally locked up that that a Rx supercar title but he didn't actually make the main event Chris Atkinson there's ten winners while times to double header weekend here's good twenty winters there you know so it's like how do you separate performances things like that you know and it's just it's going to be polaris a razor Jimmy Burmese director Chris Leoni on the line we are getting ready to do some power rankings past coupla weeks kind of been a little light on some of the there was a lot of it and it makes it tough when there's a big race like whether it be one of the crandon or Glen Helen like and you have all these different divisions competing in short course you know what I mean water sports between straight rhythm Lucas oil there at Glen Helen we also had rallycross happening where they are ex- I mean we we had a we had a lot of races especially the fact that those are x. two cars are all equal to one another you know that's the sign of real wheel man you know it's this and had some very worthy cuts and You know I feel like the five I came up with were really the best of the best one this week that it hasn't been a lot of coverage and a we've covered here a little bit on the show but we haven't really talked about frazier in that that season he has but yeah I mean you start looking I mean just motor sports as a whole could justify so interested to see if we really line up because I got to say I don't think we will yeah this is this is going to be interesting I five Chris Well Jim for number five I am going to head the mid Ohio for the season finale but I'm not gonna go with probably who you might say career goes from here for five yeah frazier did have a phenomenal season this year and I think it's weird where they are exit just seems like law starlight lounge presents an evening with the progressive box Muna's tickling the Ivories he just saved so interesting Fisher being from Jamaica which country that you don't see a lot of top to your race car drivers from so it's cool to see you know something a little different they're different flat and on a high note with the championship and the final race victory so you know anytime you see a driver like that who has a season like that and on top of the podium and he had a fantastic season here they test in a supercar with low and grow motor sports for his efforts so looking forward to seeing we're here yeah he absolutely did and I know that the benefits to the technology are still kind of in place to the US bobsled team so you know that's really take the Norwegians and stuff and he's like how are we this far behind the eight ball so bowed I think he got so involved he actually started designing bobsleds for the US Olympic team like if you crash dude it's like snap neck like no luge is not s- babs let's not skeleton that's next level crazy like yeah that's just one of those goes into it he went and he was looking at these old rickety bobsleds the United States team had and then he was looking at some of the stuff that the other countries add specific all in in two thousand nineteen and I'm talking about in this country and I would honestly I would probably say frazier season would be a top ten season in all of that Mitch's from Jamaica as like you know Jamaicans and racing you know what I saw I'm trying to get the tie in here like how the hell did we get him on that Jamaican bobsled and They actually did wind tunnel testing and things like that with bobsleds like I think Bodine literally got you WanNa talk about got bit by the bug like he went in deep jerk fishing I'm gonna go to Fraser McConnell. DAX to champion because they're actually had a dominant season one five out of nine races including ending the season Kony nineteen you know and maybe that's something we do the end of the year you know rank our top ten performances of the year or something like that frazier definitely factor into that but it's interesting so I had to Atarot acco on my list at number five hey you know who'll that's interesting my uh my co host on racing downshift Great West was actually an Olympic skeleton competitor so certainly evolved in that world on both of our lists I think he was number five both of us so you know we see tanner congratulations on you know getting another championship and I know it was a long time slowed I did that for a while they did a few events where they have the NASCAR drivers bobsleds and they flipped a few of them it was a good time though why nobody dying he got a key I'm sure they could use out of race car drivers transition into bobsled drivers. Chris I don't know that's what I WANNA know but no I think a little and you know angsty like when's my turn coming by time coming in this really wasn't a year that looked like they were going to have a chance against the mighty Oh man I would actually have to do an interview with your co host there at some point I think we're GonNa talk some skeleton but all that being said I guess I need to get to my number five and all fairness though tenor we did get him on last week for taking the victory for the Americas I think he was the only match up that we had you know in just he's always been one of the most successful so well deserved championship didn't make the list for either side with the missing the final but certainly still well-deserved I will go to middle I'll but I'm GonNa do what you did not do and no tanner faust is not my guy I wanted tanner to be on my list so bad this week but I just couldn't do it man like he got a championship the way things lineup on ours so I guess we should we should get into things here who did you have to kick off things at number able we take that seven day window or I guess maybe we could accounted in last week's results I don't know I had to go with ATCO though like you said he moved from you're in a turning point I think tanner actually needed this championship because with all those changes I just mentioned happening I think there was probably a gray area like where what is standard doing next even spoken to him in quite a while and I certainly wouldn't broach that question right even if I had you know it 'cause that's just the way I think tanner needed this season to be like hey I'm still here I'm still a bad ass and I'm still one of the best to ever wheeler Rallycross Car Chris Yeah definitely Jim I mean it's going to be Kinda like the Swan Song for the Beetle rallycross program you know and I think that's one of those a lot of people wanting what's tanner doing next year you know and and things like that but I think this is an interesting acing action I know S- Nhra still. I don't know it's weird like there in the middle of the playoffs Chris and nature is just like we're going to take like a couple of week break or something I feel like we haven't talked about any Catholic six seven years right Andretti cross I mean Yeah Scott speed locked him up year after year after year and you know I'm sure the tanner was probably getting Blake Ross works in this country right we don't get a schedule until January or February we don't start the season until June it's a very different time line than a lot of the other the second the points he had a solid effort to wins on the season wrap things up at the finale with another victory also secured that team championship for Subaru of America Eh track so I might have to ask a little bit about if he ever worked with the Bodine's anything skeletons and other level crazy 'cause you're going down on your belly like headfirst I you know you're you're probably in trouble because you don't necessarily know whatever you're racing and if those markets are gonNA work your sponsors but on the other hand it does give you where does he go and I think you know if you're GONNA put up Rallycross Program together in twenty twenty like he's got to be at the top of the list I want ten thousand he is my guy right and just you know just about anything in Tana's going to drive the wheels off of it so I I don't mean that in a bad way but I think just with the factory teams and Subaru in you know they're coming with a loaded team and would extra couple of months to dig for some of those last minute deals I mean we've seen it throughout the years it only deals put together last minute I feel like the only la taking the cup at Crandon or shredding UTV's vision wheels trendsetting designs durability will set you apart from the competition and your friends checkout vision wheel dot com goes up from a certain points to second by winning the race but Who is actually GONNA go with number five I'm going to go to our friends over hello and grow camp so I guess never say never yeah you just never yeah you never quite tell but you know the one thing we do know is you know as is the case with true X. Nascar things like that champions always find a ride some some way somehow it's not a good for a series to have a champion who doesn't have a ride the next year of some sort you know Rocker Utd the choice is easy you choose what the Pros Us Rob McCarron kincaid and myself Jim beaver all exclusively use vision wheel whether we're dominating team for the Winter Olympics but I'm the driver of that thing like I I'm just trying to figure out this Olympic tie in here like I think there's more for young frazier McConnell Rallycross man I want to get him in the Olympics motor-sports work on and that does make it hard on the one hand to get a program together because if you're trying to secure a marketing budget before December thirty don't drive around listening to thrive around listening to the sound of performance Gibson Performance Gibson performance exhaust is the company who can turn this taken more and more thanks for tuning into the down and dirty radio show available live online Graham that we really know of you know for sure what it's going to look like next year we'd be Subaru because I can't see them making any I figure that low and Bro will probably pretty similar as well but you know that is still a question mark what's going to happen with Andretti are they going to build new cars they going to build different cars is the beetle action this Chris Number five hundred power rankings Chris Ed Frazier McConnell from Dirt Fish I had Chris Atkinson from suber both victorious in in sure commercial break we come back we'll have our top four here in power rankings on the down and dirty radio show powered by polaris razor when looking for a new wheel for your offroad vehicle car by passing one another so finding your way to get out front was super super important he managed to do that they put it all together and because rallycross one taking the supercar victory one taking the I guess what is it Eric's to I want to call it lights still but everybody knows what I'm talking about so we're moving on number four are we going to come back I can't necessarily see that happening if it's no longer sold here but then again Ford as the Mustang and they're still racing is over You Know Kyle Larson Kurt Busch was the stronger driver chip Ganassi racing for the early stages of the year but it's Kyle Larson moving on right now so our list before I butcher this any further Chris who did you have at number four on your list for this week well Jill I interesting to see what the long term future is whether you know whether tenor put something to you spare weather tanner stays with Andretti I mean I think tanner is definitely safe it's going to be interesting and I honestly I hope he ends up back with android and open and ready stays in rally crosses my hope but we gotta take it go get the cut in the demotion heading the Dover and I am giving it to Kyle Larson at number four Punched his ticket to the next round of the NASCAR Cup playoffs and Polaris Razor Djembe recruits Leoni just getting done with our top two empowering our top our top number the top of our list I've totally butchered yeah well you know and that being said I know you know we'll we'll carry this and then we'll go to break and guitar top four but you know talking about tanner I know like you said this was a year we didn't expect a lot of doc on Sunday so I'll tell you what if you were off road a dirt fan this was the weekend for you in southern California that's for sure but speaking the pack racing and the potential for the big one but Kyle Larson made the most of any into dover it seemed like a lot of drivers had a really hard in syndication on networks across the US and available internationally on the American Forces Network welcome back to the down and dirty radio show powered by and Volkswagen you know they're they're they're at a crossroads of that program with Andretti and Volkswagen on you know what do you do next and things like that because the Beatles been phased out and things like that and this was up which is is the complete opposite but it's still it's a million dollars on the line different format with three races like it's Kinda cool that you've got the two I've been flipping and flopping between the break trying to figure out who am I going to go with on three and who am I going to go with on four 'cause I haven't pretty equal but I guess the one who's kind in the country that weekend you know you've got rebel straight rhythm which you know is is so different than anything we see and then you've got rebel you've got excuse me monster energy the factor yeah I you know tanner still thought to point out I mean he is be most experienced valley plus driver we have in the states you know he's one of the winning it you had a red bull straight rhythm so if you're dirt fan I know there's a lot of people out of Glen Helen earlier in the day they checked out with over two over two straight rhythm Saw that and then doc but for my power rankings I gotTa Roll with Ken Rocks in and I know he was riding Jeremy McGrath one eight hundred collect dirt bike out of him you know and I don't want to say that you know because Tanner's tanner like I always expect you he's going to be around the podium conversation you could put him in jail or at wheel on social media to learn more about the sound the sound vehicle straight rhythm has become one of my favorite events of the year it's it's you know October's become really we've got to the big motocross supercross events in the under bike and I think McGrath even posted something instagram and kind of tip the Kaptur oxen because he he literally threw back the the throwback eight rhythm it's where everybody goes to have fun you got guys like Ryan Villa Porto coming back you guys like Travis Pastrana who shows up and he always brings these wild creations guys bring the strokes out two strokes and things like that you know and I I do have to give an honorable mention to Travis Pastrana for his backflip on his five hundred CC two strokes red bull straight rhythm I know is this is this is a big weekend for offroad fans and dirt fans in southern California had Glen Helen going on and at the same time literally only about fifteen twenty miles away bowl because with general tire anywhere is possible when looking for a new wheel for your offroad vehicle car number four on my liberals to him solid saw pick there at number four for me I am going to we're going to go over to St Rhythm the whole works look just like Jeremy McGrath old stuff but it's one eight hundred rocks and instead of one eight collect and Moroccan dominating effort there and these guys take it talk list I think the only weekend you might get bumped on that is if there's a lucas race on Memorial Day weekend which I know there's not but because then state a little bit head over to Glen Helen for Lucas oil off wrote the race is that you were calling this weekend and I'm GonNa go with Brock Hager at my number three there's remember that life is all about now and gives an exhausting it's the sound of performance account your next Cat Back Exhaust System Hitters or utd exhausted gives it performance that is always gotta be a relief but even more so going to Talladega this week where you know you assume that that car is not coming back in one piece with seriously it is a lot of fun these guys have a ton of fun you know what I mean but it is a serious race and for those reasons I gotTa have kinross in on my list when Mustard H. E. Cup there's a lot of money online everybody takes really seriously and it's kind of our window into what's going to happen in the following season I feel like rebels or at number four and I think with Roxanne you know like we said he struggled to come back after those handsome catastrophic crashes and injuries but I think at the pont but rocks and at number four Chris Yeah Jim and I will get to can couple of minutes but for my number three I'm actually gonNA cross the or this season and now looking at red bull stare them I think we're oxen's back to one hundred percent as me really excited for the two thousand twenty supercross into see I think he's really going to be a factor in this championship time that you can go for Ron podiums no I don't care what your classroom brock had a fantastic weekend Swept believe it was the Production One Thousand Utd races to podiums including one victory in pro white four podiums you're going to be on my list Brock Hager one of the Lucas Oil off road drivers that is GonNa make my list I'm sure that you've probably up to go up against the indy five hundred the COQ six hundred the Monaco crump ry that one you might get bumped but you know anytime like I said you go money when you bundle home and Auto Progressive Casualty Insurance Company affiliates in other insurance discounts not available in all states or situations yeah well I not going to argue with Kenner Oxen at all I'm GonNa move to number two though I had Kyle Larson I know we're down about two minutes in the segment so I'll keep competitors at that time so we don't want to go that route but yeah I'm giving Kenny rocks and my number two Lake we've said red bull straight rhythm really is just always such a cool show but Kenny rocks him was perfect on the weekend which is for an event unlike any other I would say as an accomplished a serious race it just happens to be a serious race that's not attached championship so you can actually go out and have fun God of the tribute stuff is always a big shoes to fill too because he was wearing evil people's want he was wearing you know evils red white and blue colors and man he showed up to you know Oh cool I mean Cooper web did the did another Jeremy McGrath tribute put it in his own name in hot wheel logo I mean you had guys as me with how fast he is behind the wheel of anything I know he's going to be an action at best in the desert this weekend Laughlin this kid flies is definitely the future of offroad and you know you know had a little bit little better performance on the weekend just because of the divisions he did it in but yeah hager this kid he never ceases to me so in Chris and for those same reasons you said I've got hager at number three you know not to discredit his performances to have him at number three I just thought there was one guy that on the week who did you have a number two yeah and you know I spent all this time thinking about something clever to say about Ken rocks and a quick but the same reasons you said earlier on you know obviously taking taking a win stamping his ticket to the next a next round of the playoffs front runners you know a little more than in the past we had Ryan Dungy last year but you know that was after Ryan already retired this year not only did we have walks in but we had cooper web show up we had Jason Anderson show ups yet to most recent supercross champs you know you had coal sealy just fresh off retire airman kind of giving it one last go you had tyler bowers there and he was the one who actually took down Travis Pastrana and that five hundred CC showdown but first qualifying made it all the way to the finals but you know what can you say about a guy like Ken rocks and and it was awesome to have some active supercross on weekend like you said four for four hundred podium sweeping production one thousand ticket pro-life win he is definitely number three on my list which takes us to number two Chris tops two on my list which brings us to

If you like any it should be also it's on on facebook as well so make sure you check that out for all the latest on our sports and you know really big shout out to our good friends at I racing and suspension get stronger axles are you looking for new witch to get you out of a tough spot super ATV has what you're looking for and since we know you're in a hurry we offer fast free shipping to the lower forty that season he started out strong and you know I feel like he is very much the Rubens Barrichello to Michael Schumacher that you know that he is to Lewis L. The wheel man I mean it's like Rubens Barrichello if Schumacher never existed that guy would probably be a four or five time Formula One world champion you know but and I feel like bonuses I hope that he can shake that stigma at some point and not that anybody in Formula One would complain about being the number two at Mercedes because it's definitely one of the the to I mean I think it's his third victory on the season but I don't know I just I gotTa root for the guy just because he is that legitimate number two at this point and you know I am going to go to about the most polar opposite race event that you can think of I'm the head to Laughlin for the best in the desert season finale one of unfortunately he's in that position he's probably could have been one of the greats you know and who knows he may still be but anytime you can get a guy like that's the number one status on their respective teams to take number two at Mercedes but you know boathouse came back with a vengeance this year for my number four though I think that it'd be back into that may June July feeling swing of things with you know just some other events sort of coming back and you know getting down to the wire playoffs Hamilton I feel like it's that same relationship like easily legitimate number two and I feel like it's just accepted at this point that he's the number two and he's he's eight in at number five voluntary botas had a pretty strong start to the season and then just kind of faded away and You know we we all kind of Jason Yeah no I agree so with that being said I I gotTa tell you Chris I'm looking at my list here one two three biggest fans to get back on top of the podium so he is my number five wow in an interesting twist of fate you and I don't know how long that's GonNa Continue Jim but yeah no doubt I mean it's interesting obviously as well to think about the fact that boathouse went winless take away in the season finale to wins in six races overseas and that's pretty stellar but to be able to earn that championship on you know he's still declare cut second place driver in the F. One standings and he is probably going to finish a career best second in the championship but and I'm GonNa go with Mitch Guthrie Junior for winning not only the race but the championship and having to come from fourth in points and Jones who you know also Kinda struggled but you know Msci put together a solid season you know take a win at the mid four hundred it's a big deal because believe me during my time at GRC I was looking for just a plain red bull hat for years and Nope you've just got him if you're an athlete it's it's prestigious winning certainly helps no matter when you're doing no matter where you're doing it and You know I know that was kind of a long awaited win I think for both US and host wanted seats in all of motor sport but yeah I I had to have him on the list at number five so we're matching so far Chris Housing three really really talented drivers points you know Phil blurt and had a DNS which surprised all of us but Jason Murray as well and I don't know it's just like we're in the middle of the playoffs and I feel like they just took it seems like a month off I know it's definitely not a month but man finally back in action the next week and dude we got monster energy this is just all around the world I mean we haven't even touched on obviously the bathurst one thousand down the stretch where Alexander Ramsey and james were we didn't even touch them house kinda faded away there for a little while but finally returned to the top step of the podium in Japan it was his first win since I believe around four of the season I told him I said I want that hat so much hanging here in the studio I said I will pay his entry fee the mid four hundred and they started laughing I said I'm serious they go you're serious aren't got formula drift we got we got a whole lot of stuff happening so it's like finally I feel like we're getting our Mojo back here and got racing in full swing it seems like there's a couple of weeks where it was you're starting out the same this week Chris out of everybody on our list we both had botas there at at number five you know like you said this is going to be needed doc deal and it's an even bigger deal I think if you can only do that in the final race of the championship and You know I it was one of the next year I mean there were definitely rumors about somebody else being in that vehicle you know because there are so many drivers that I think would be willing to give up even number ace some problems on the last lap Adrian ended up taking the win in the naturally aspirated class and in snapped the perfect season for it's a big deal so congrats to him for fantastic weekend in season and that's why I've got at number four it is a funny story on the rebel hats I actually but believe me I tried to I tried to do the same thing with some of the GRC guys and I just now I could never convince anybody we best in the desert one of the only major classes that really had a dominant driver this year you know with Steph winning the first five out of six and I mean he was phenomenal so joints and I believe he also just landed that deal with red bull so that's all what is kind of a that's always been accomplishment to be able to wear that hat going on and getting a single or something like that you know what I mean in the bottom of the night and it snaps of a perfect game or a no hitter and I feel like that's what it did and I mean legitimately offered Seth Concerto his parents and everything else they said look if you can get me one sess red bull hats like the authentic ones and have him sign it go I am dead serious I want to sign Steph contextual authentic rebel at I don't want one of those like Red Bull Signature series one-day sell through their e shop I said Legit I just throw him on the list there at number four Chris Definitely well-deserved Jim for Adrian. I mean yeah anytime you can end somebody's perfect season that's concern is going to take the championship but Adrian Man I got a tip the cap to this kid to get that win beats says snap the perfect season you know it was a breakthrough This one was another story from Laughlin I could only have one you TV guy on the list and I had to go to the class and I had to go to my my buddy Adrian Air Elena he athlete hats signed by Seth and I'll pays entry at the mid four hundred his parents like I don't know if we can do that but if it's even possible we will try for you so people a commercial break down when we come back Chris and I love our top three and power rankings for this week right here on the down and dirty radio show powered by police razor are you looking for a place to push yourself behind the whether driving the high performance rally prepped all-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza Sti is what you're looking for or you'd rather hang it all out in the rear wheel drive superbeets Z's dirt fish rally school has something this is my boy I love the Kandara family I wish them nothing but the best than you know an Adrian's a good friend of mine I just like good racing and this was a good clean race and even even the ED number four I had to Adrian Air Elena at number four both players razor drivers I might add but that means we gotta move into our top three on the week four Oh and see how your driving skills stack up this rally school is that place located on three hundred fifteen acres of pristine automotive playground at the foot of the cascade mountains in Snoqualmie Washington Titian or just looking at fresh in your skills behind the wheel dirt fish rally school is the place to go for more information on registering for classes visit dirt fish on the web at dirt fish dot com or to check out the latest happenings. Second Terro Seth loss about a won the war seth is the champ we kind of knew that was a I think it was just kind of a mathematical he just needed to show up basically Winfrey Adrian he's been one of those guys everybody knows fast and he finally was able to put it all together and I just I couldn't do my power rankings this week and not include him so on Apple podcast and be sure to rate review and subscribe walk back to the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris terrorist go man Adrian had a great race push us it limit that's what you WanNa see you know I'm just a fan of good racing and I had to have him on the list at number four we are going to take yeah I think is what is his very first ever best as women in the naturally aspirated class guy he's a blue collar racer he works really really hard on his program I mean really hard actually gonna give it to the winner of the Race Ryan Blaney who nearly threw away with that botched pit road entry earlier in the race but Ryan Blades wrenches on things that are you know in his garage at his house and everything else but I've set it all along to be the man you gotTa beat the man and as hard as Adrian for everyone bosses are available from two hours to three full days and feature instructors with over one hundred and fifty years of combined racing experience whether you're looking to become the best and get an edge on the carpet power rankings here on the show and I dunno Chris get started with your with your number three on the week well Jim I think we kind of have the gentlemen's agreement eating out or whether you've been doing it for forty fifty years yeah well and I feel like this is like this is like a batter coming in the bottom of the ninth inning and a pitchers got a no no things about the playoff format regardless of what you feel about playoffs in motor sports in general is if you win you move on you know and that reward list of Tan I whacked him because honestly I knew you were going to put him on there and we were gonNA and this is no reflection on his season he's just one so much realize how tough those hats are to actually come just want an authentic one hanging in the studio just do because I know they're so rare but actually Chin it's a shame I mean I still get the free bills in the mail of rebound so you can't argue with that so I'm GonNa go to Laughlin and it's funny because Mitch through junior he was on watching Chris Four we both Got Utd drivers from Laughlin this is kind of weird because our stuff never matches up like this makes me wonder about our top two clutch performances by guys like Blaney who points wise may not have had a chance so you know Britney doing that taking the victory to move on to the round of eight right outside of Seattle Derbyshire Alley schools one of a kind place where everyone from first time drivers season professionals like Bucky lassic and antoine massage can push themselves to their lives razer Jim beaver in Chris Leoni here we've got our our five hundred four and our power rankings going on both of us had botas at number five Mitch Guthrie we come to appreciate that and like you said Blaney you know it's like the NFL I know like the cardinals were talking about ten years ago when they went to the super bowl I mean we were like we weren't picked to do anything playoff round the twelve in Dover you know bad weekend for Blaney there and he was going to be at the bottom of the list but you know one of the Nice work this season he hasn't been able to actually last couple of years he just had a middle cracked the nut but he had a great race with Suskind tear. I mean this thing was an amazingly I'm going to give him the number three spot on my list well in another Weird World I've Got Ryan Blaney at number three on my list so you and I are both the five and three were guarantee one of my top two won't match yours but yeah blading I mean like you said I I have a love hate relationship with with Nascar in this playoff format and the point they raised it starts on Sunday is delayed into Monday we factored in instead of pushing forward the next week so I'm GonNA head to how to sweet home Alabama was it was amazing that every bit the photo finish and I always want to give a little I want to be partial to guys I tend to be the impartial drivers so Ryan Blaney I mean for all the reasons you said you know as well as mine I've got him Number three on my list yeah I I mean it's he holds off Ryan Newman by point zero zero seven seconds and frankly saves this season because coming off of that first race of this WANNA racist delayed by a day and you've got to come back the next day and finish it I think that is so hard from a driver because you're in the moment on Sunday and then all of a sudden ah I am actually for number two I am going to stay with the Monday brigade as there were a number of Nhra rounds asked on any lap for just about any reason so you know it's always fun to have the photo finishes like we haven't Talladega You know and five hundred career round win you know Robert Hight has just been rolling this year and not really many drivers have been close I mean just because it comes down to one race but even then I mean you know that changes next year because that finale moves to phoenix so I don't know you may need to check that one out but from dirt fish follow them on facebook instagram and twitter at dirt Fisher Alley like what you hear catch all the bag episodes of the down and dirty radio show King of the Nhra right now and that is Robert Hight John Force racing took his class meetings six funny car victory of the season his I do appreciate and I do respect that I mean I feel like sometimes you get some weird champions and some weird runner up finishers at homestead yeah his team owner John has been pretty close had a couple of victories Ron capps has had a few victories Jack Beckman there's still second in points after winning the season the there's so much going on with having a superspeedway race be part of the play offs where you've got pack racing like that and you've got the potential for eliminate it but you know what he somehow managed to sneak his way in with a win there and Chris photo-finish was crazy I mean GonNa go to data and while I would love to give it to Brendan gone for flipping landing it and moving forward and I love how he talks my list a little bit of spoiler there but number two I am going to go with the person who would probably be my number two on just a season power certainly again well deserving victory by Ryan Blaney and you know like you said you earn your way in you know by getting that victory I the stage racing but it does lend itself to guys really you know throwing caution to the wind you know come the final races of the year and that's stripped away and you've got a you know you go to sleep and you've got to come back in you've got to refine that adrenalin restart the race and that's not an easy thing to you know to be able to beat somebody with season like that you know that that's got to be one of the biggest accomplishments no matter whether you're in your twenties and just star list of five but that doesn't mean as performances any any less you know any less but for my number two I'm GonNa go back to Loft Vegas Torino but you know I gotta say Kyle Jirga Nsen this kid is the real deal and I think this was very much a statement winfrey he's not number two on my list but NHRA has always been a tough one for me much is the desert races are in Nhra comes just about every single weekend or a good chunk of them entire slain into two hours a week sit back strap in and be prepared to get your ears glove here is Jim beaver and on the Finish Fifth Overall Laughlin and we have to drive that track that is a that is a statement one sixty one hundred he's coming off you know obviously a great performance funny car championship title above his head when we get to Pomona for the valley you know rubber heights had a phenomenal year I can honestly at Zemach Dragway in Charlotte that got delayed to Monday and We're actually I believe going to stay in Charlotte for the rest of or the playoff opener rather at maple grow but you know Robert Heights been pretty untouchable this year and I will be surprised if he is not holding yet another we should've got knocked out in the first round but we got lucky and won and kept getting you know all of a sudden land in the Super Bowl I feel like Nascar Limit Self Tagalog Blaney I mean he should do you know whether it be Nhra that y you know Kinda under similar circumstances or NASCAR I really you know I I really will doubting his interview after directly like I'm fine with looking up look off road plenty of times flipping doesn't hurt it just slows you down but I am throughout the summer so but it's hard because you know every every week we could have two three four performances on the list and Robert Hight was on my list of ten but he didn't make the fastest guys in off road he just doesn't have the budget he's we're trying to give him the opportunity to you know to to run and show people what he can do and I gotTa Tell You Vegas Torino had a great kid and once he gets into trophy truck let me tell you man look out because he is going to fly so call Jergen number two on my list am at Laughlin and sixty one hundred. I'm very excited I believe cameras going to bring them back for next year and let them have a a full season potentially so I'm excited to see what the future holds for the owner Cambric and drives and some of the long races with him he's kind of moved into more of a team owner role but he's told me he's like Jimmy Kyle is the real deal like we brought him into the truck he's phenomenal he's like one Flynn and I'm going to go with Kyle Jirga Nsen who was our sixty one hundred overall winner and you know college against the driver Cambric Jerry's eight and he's a good friend of mine Jim I definitely had to think about Kyle Jorgensen online especially because he had that head to head battle basically with Brock Hager throughout the weekend it was brock was first second on the first day and then vice versa on the second ma than the other way round was close with eight seconds they under something fact that he is doing they're doing Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes type things with the equivalent of Mike no we're watching greatness as we speak and I said you literally take it all in because this won't ever happen again yeah there is a reason why when the SP best Dr the capability to attack even the harshest terrain if you're looking for some of the most reliable and safest and hands down most capable off road machines in the world look no further than do I don't even know Chris I don't and I've said this before I'm like this something like this is never happened in motorsports before and people are I don't know people kind of look at me but I held off after this week and I really wanted to text and get him on and I was like yeah let's let's wait a couple of weeks I think there's a bigger story here if we wait but hilarious in their award winning lineup of razor vehicles whether you want your daughter to experience opera driving for the first time in a razor seventy like me take the entire family out in a razor heartedly Chris without though we do have to take a short commercial break and we'll be back after this on the down and dirty radio show powered by police razor how many victories over the past three years has steeped orange taken it's gotta be about thirty overlapped when it comes time to relax on the weekend nothing better than taking time with my family and our razor vehicles they've got the reliability I need to just pick up and go explore the desert dunes or trail and ever voting came around why we were both in T. torrents why we were both in that can't and it's not just because we worked with them three like literally he was telling me something when he and I were talking and it's been a while it's Steve's one of those weird ones I interview them every single week and it'd be a great interview the people are one thousand on the weekend shred the desert dunes in the all new razor X.

Yeah well I know it's been a crazy couple of weeks for you I gotta I gotTa ask is the answer on Brown's Torrance is unstoppable right now proc beat him in the final but we're bringing new stars in is somehow some some of it's not through and and but but in the end of our sport is doing well and but sponsorships I have meetings there today so you know whether you're an endemic or a non endemic you wanna get involved in just because of the fan interaction and the exposure but as we see other motorsports struggling right now I I see Nhra because it's exciting for the fans it's great for Pecan Chevrolet Auto Club and all these people advanced auto parts you know the list Montana Brandon lists better than a lot of the other motorsports we have in this country right now you look at and I love my son in Law Graham Ray Hall that Courtney married is an indie one fifty and in the middle of it I got out of the car I had mellow yellow they're trying to put a trophy on me and necklaces for winning the race I had the race track trying to give me and you've seen you've seen the tides come in and go out and come in and go out but you know I've been in Nhra for fan for a long time but man John I got a I got to feel show much in Nhra we're still packing them in thirty forty fifty thousand people a day and and but ours is does appearances for auto club but seven days a week we're selling trying to keep the thing afloat but it's like it's our love for what we do on a little bit too but not bad our TV that they took in house Nhra Fox is doing a real good job real good people if we can get that time the only win one and and I and that's where I was going you know I didn't even have a win under my belt and I needed one more to get to one fifty and they hyped it big it's it is tough but these young kids are coming up and and they're hired guns that's all they do is drive their cars and do media and a parent title we went to our house and Lake Tall we had about three days and my wife was more things on the Internet that said John Force is going around bobby so so no we just keep doing it we keep growing the sport but the kids the young kids that are driving and let's start at fifty down the sport but you know you look at these kids I'm seventy and but the race car does running for me okay and I'm addicted to the sport I love the night apologize for that we got we got families out there and children and and and I thought it would be beeped and disappeared so were you go out there with these fuel funny cars and and you'll win thirteen fourteen races and you're just hot and then you'll have a season where you the lake it's an hour drive all the way around the lake and they said he's been in the car somebody told me at seven in the morning somebody told me at nine at night because a and you're in the teams I mean it seems like sponsorship I don't want to say he's easy to get because it's never easy to get but I feel like the business proposition for nature as sponsorship is a whole lot I just driving the cars we loved the business side of it so we're lucky we have a job that's partially our hobby partly roll the smell of Nitro I love the three hundred and thirty miles an hour and a side-by-side men and women racing each other we have a lot of women in the sport and and and week for a year and and but I really learned I joke about learned from the monkey because I learned that and when I look at it when I see them after where three us one is an owner to make sure they do their work you know to me and I'm winning you know finally got this win in this I call it the monkey off my back but the monkey was an imaginary tough but ain't no different we just gotTa keep working well you know that'd be it's sad I mean I wanNA talk about the competitive nature they nhra right now because you're talking about you know been at it for forty five years breaks the steering it was handful just to stare at things you take for granted but the car evolves and changes and you don't know it we got it back on track a good drivers and get teams you know my daughter Britney won the championship two years ago in top fuel but it's tough out there the thing that doesn't exist that I created that other people created to me I've you know it was it just became every week Abdin yeah definitely get the job done and I know you've got another interview to get to let you go though got one last question and I know you know you've been fortunate to allow insist I've gotta run seven corporations and it's a full time seven days a week I work Saturdays and Sundays you know I came back after and so we are a family affair love.

P. is more than a store or truck and jeep experts and have been for over fifty years I loved I haven't raced down in Bah and a few years we're talking about going back next year but this course in particular this reminded me of the Old Selfish Baja five hundred courses I mean anky off your back because you've wanted trophy truck before but do this asked to be feel really damn good about now I tell you what it it is it and I know this was that weird one where you know we've gone to most of the events now have qualifying but this one for one reason or another didn't and I know it was kind of the old radio show powered by Polaris raised like to welcome my good friend Ryan are Sierra to the show Ryan man the Big One who finally I want to say thousand probably six or seven something like that that we that we so that we ran down Simpson's Mike Sky Ranch and so it's neat to be able to we're talking early two thousands mid-2000s a lot of that I mean correct me if I'm wrong was like those Baja five hundred courses but Roger Norman has kind of gone a different route with his five hundred a tie that those old courses back in again and I mean the course for me this year overall I loved it it was a real it was really a driver's course and and this course that lent itself to my driving style so but but the biggest thing we had overcome all day long and it was for everybody pill draw where you and I grew up with that I mean we're we're super familiar with that but you know it's middle long time since the unlimited classes actually were by pill drugs so I think there was except for except for the lead to lead trucks was dust dust was horrible especially where we started you know and I know there's been a lot of talk on the Internet about dust is better Dan McMillan did or it could have been lucky that day so it's it's really a coin toss about point and and especially with this course the way this course was laid out and a fast starting in the back I know you probably didn't get the starting position you want I mean I think it added a whole different aspect of this you know how was that for you going since probably the eighties nineties if that and and then and then it's been it's been since I think it was two thousand I wanna say to them if anybody followed the race on Saturday and you could see how close it was all day long all the way to the end just incredible and I think this course one thing you know not a lot not not a whole lot a rough we we missed us all the sample ebay stuff which is not the end of the world for me I like drivers course I like technical and I and I I wasn't able to their persons I watched it online and my my hands were sweating and because I knew I could I could have drawn just really turn your race upside down and because it being a one line courts for this race there's not a lot of opportunity to pass in and for for for things like that so I think a lot of this probably hasn't been running a few years right no you know what the one of the key sections well there's two it was in two thousand fourteen I believe thirteen or fourteen and then prior to that was my back on one thousand wins and trump is trump with Mark Miller in two thousand three hundred thousand and four and I when you when you mix in some of the slower guys and I said I say that lightly these guys you know we're we're all out there all they're competing we all we all want to have a chance to win the My Dad went out there with Sean Hoagland and and they chased us and they went out to checkpoint one which is that wash and my dad my dad was sitting in Washington with Sean waiting for me monkey the monkey has gone off the back you're right in saying that that's I think my last drove a truck win was hurts Parker for the best in desert race and then all of the other guys out there it it you know we had all week long during pre running we end wind and at this this never fails race day it was still as can be you had you had to wash which which is before we would we have run that they had in a long time my dad weren't able to physically pass anybody running because you couldn't see so it forced us to to be consistent let them make the mistake that we get around him and that's exactly what we did all is going on the Internet and everything else but if you like if there was some wind on race day or if there would have got rain you know that week of or something like that it would have changed the dynamic and we wouldn't be hearing the he goes and he goes I remember Rac- My to seek are back in the eighties here and in a in a Toyota truck as well and and I don't think we've we've run that uh-huh help technical and one line of course was having a crappy draw is it can determine whether whether you're going to do well or not do well this race and I tried to catch somebody and you had to be patient you had to you couldn't make any mistakes could fly pirated couldn't corners pursue were having I you know what I I agree it the draw itself probably probably made the race the way the way it ended up AH locks because we don't want to add another element to what what is what what we already go against try to start to finish to win one of these races and particular race I would have rather qualified don't get me wrong but but having a good finish at this race was everything because it leads leads us right into the biggest race we have all your lawn Acta this pill draw type of thing you know that we haven't seen in a while Ryan I tell you what when they did they did the drawl camera steals by headquarters and coming you you're on pole position for the biggest off-road race of the year buddy hield approach this man this is like poll at the and but you get guys that are that are new sport or don't have the experience level that some of the fast guys have and and run and run a lot slower pace and it can forty miles and so it allowed me to bridge that gap to that next group of trucks up in front of us and and that was it that that was the only that was the only if you wanted to win this race you had to be consistent and and have some patience or anything that dust and Detroit to get around guys that are making that are making these mistakes and that's that's what we capitalize on five hundred buddy I know it's it's it is huge it is huge it does it does come with some disadvantages as well opening the road for the Baja one thousand I five hundred and and and we ended up having a DNS because because of a part failure so for us you know about I was okay with with the draw for this could sometimes can be a disadvantage but all depends all depending on the weather what we have it's also obviously a huge advantage because because we're setting the pace and aw Robbie had a mechanical issue of Mile Sixty and and I was in deepen his dust and allowed me get around him and I had a little bit of clean air for about another I'm not a big fan of the drought going back to answer your first question I'm not a big fan of it I'd rather as qualify or be based on the merits of of where we finished last race for us our last probably break I had dust free and the whole rest of the race was industrial the whole way to the finish and do you think you know because we both read it'd be still as a as can be and you know serious it was it was the wind was still and and so the dust just sat so it made it even more difficult to try to run these books stacked up like seconds boom one truck second check their truck I mean that was incredible and that was more like this because the draw mccaren Keegan kincaid and myself Jim beaver all exclusively use vision wheel weather were dominating Baja taking the cup at Crandon or shredding UTV's vision wheels and setting designs and durability will set you apart from the competition and your friends checkout vision wheel dot com or at vision wheel and social media to learn more doc and I can't I can't figure it out all during the week of pre running we're like man this is great I hope this wind comes up for Saturday and I'm the back of my head on my going to be like every every other race we have were Saturday morning am set issues to be able to communicate with me and we had such a big lead over the whole rest of the pack I think we add fifteen twenty minutes to the next car behind us we it was we were checked out which is the one that everyone wants to win enough symbolic thousand yeah well I'm talking about the one thousand I mean Ryan I guess the results for this determined the ball on thousand correct show powered by Polaris Razor after this break when looking for a new wheel for your offroad vehicle car truck or UTV the choices easy you choose what the pros us rob and not with just US winning but how close it was at the finish line I've never I've never and I know you haven't either early years we've evolved for you ever seen a Finnish like that before we we have that because he was able to pick up the pace of new exactly where I was I had no idea where he was so it comes with some disadvantages as long as you get the get the communication needs about sound a sound of sports the sound of the racetrack and the sound of your vehicle don't drive around listening to his drive around listening to the sound of mm-hmm thanks for tuning into the down and dirty radio show available live online in syndication networks across the US and internationally on the American forces network welcome back to the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor Jimmy here along with a good friend Ryan validate the pace that you're running whether you need to pick it up whether whether your pace was good or whether you can back down a little bit and we're going to continue this conversation Ryan are Sierra when we return here to the down and dirty radio linked to gauge the pace off of that point when you're when you're out front and and the perfect example of that is what happened to us to San Felipe we lost radio we we had some radio issues and and and and as long as there's no mistakes made or flat tires your dust free what's you know not having us in front of you is a big big advantage and anybody who says it's not it is I mean I think we know with a new program sometimes it takes a while to get everything to put together and everything to Gel but you've got to be really excited right now because I feel like this season performance Gibson performance performance company who can this is all about Gibson exhausting our CFO and Ryan got to be really excited with this program. I know you know you've had some hiccups along the way but right now I mean you mentioned San Felipe but now you guys are hitting your stride formation of not being able to get that information to me I just kept the same pace had been running all day well at that pace wasn't quick enough because you know Indian the beating by a little over a minute but still it was not bad at the finish line 'cause 'cause there was only one time that I was out of dust and that was Robbie Pierce started right in front of me between ending underperformance account your next cat back exhaust system enters or Yuki the exhausted Gibson performance dot com get more and more so eh this engine Jimmy this joke these guys they took everything they learn from Nascar and Nascar you you have to build a building engine based on the it's one of the best engines I've ever raced in any form of motorsport incredible you know that's that's amazing to me you know that we've got you know and I know Robbie's done some stuff but what I didn't get any information whereas all the facts guys are sorted way that there were thirty thirty forty minutes back start line and and not having any the concrete guys Kevin Thomson Harley Wedner which they didn't want to this race they ran it for Vegas Reno and had had some issues mechanical problems with something else in the truck but the based on being in a box being constraint you can only do this now these the engineers over there Dustin Mark Vincent Builder Were able to a terrible days have been they they've been working their butts off all year long on these trucks and It

But no i don't just so i'm old. I mean these young kids. You know what i mean. Yeah it's it's kind of. I don't know now i i appreciate it. I don't think i'm gonna do. Yeah that's interesting. Yeah so you like those days are gone for you. The wrenching like you know what i mean like. Yeah pretty much say so. Unfortunately i just don't know if i have it in myself. He did it for a long time.

I pod or or pulp shows but we'll answer began if we can and some of them you guys. I'll ask him but you guys aren't gonna wanna touch the answer but i'm gonna ask him anywhere okay. I'm going to ask him anyways. You guys can answer them or take the fifth. You can the not a problem there. So i guess before we get started too far into this again. Thank you to fly. Racing and rental maxes kobe links and motorsport really appreciate it going to do some bench racing gonna talk a little bit about The series in general. Here how much you've been watching berlet of the three rounds down in the outdoors right now. We had a terrific supercross season. How much you've been watching like. I said it's so in my blood still like i said i love it so much that i very passionate watch it all the time you're into it on live or you tape it. I'd say because. I don't want to go through the commercials right right right. Yeah and skip. You usually have it on at the brewery. Yeah but the high point. I didn't get a chance. We were busy that day. I tried so you're not. You're not going home and watching it like you know what i mean like you. You look follow it. But you're not berlet and in front of the screen you know. I did was supercross. But i haven't okay at the nationals. Yeah just mainly because we're just super busy right right. This is a real story right now. Never been off the podium through six motos. He's got the red plate. I i mean look. I called it as a sleeper to start the season. I'll start with uber lou. This is surprising how good he is. I mean he's ripped through the pack a couple of times Absolutely i i'm not. He's not. He's not who i'm rooting for. Yeah fortunately but you can't deny what he's doing amazing surprise. Various is yeah. I figured he'd be good because he's he's a better outdoor guiding supercross but he wrote awesome and supercross also so. I expected him to do well but usually at that smaller bike guy doesn't transition usually but very few guys transition that four fifty that quickly skipped in the she'll out of a motorcycle. Yeah he's just good. And i remember i wanna to say it was kind of been seventeen or eighteen. Somewhere in there When he just waxed everybody. The at glen helen. The one moto. Yup i use looked at him go and he figures out how to do that. Every time is on their. Yep then watch out because a guy can ride a dirt by and you know what he's he's passed everybody in the class. He's passed everybody from the back. You know what i mean. So that's where i'm like. Oh this guy is you know. He's gotten great starts and hasn't been able to put himself in a good spot. Other guys put themselves in a good spot. He hasn't and he's still been able to get on the box or a win. It's just he's so confident just watching. Just watch him on his motorcycle. He just is using confidence right. Yeah some we were talking about told. Struggling outlook won the second moto highpoint. I still don't know how he does sound like going away right. Yeah pretty much kind of a little bit. Reminiscent of the yeah absolutely third or fourth and ripped through. The top guys was gone yet. Eight seconds five laps in six laps in you know So i don't know what's going on with him. We're kind of still waiting like whether it's just he was just on for that one moto or or maybe he did find mojo back. So we're waiting on that. But i was thinking like and we were talking about this on the show like dungeon. Rv went indoors title. outdoor title. Right ricky did indoors and outdoors for god knows twelve years. Jeremy did it when he got serious. He should have won ninety six title indoors out. Like that's what the greats do. They go indoors and outdoors. And it's twenty nine weekends of pressure snarly right but we haven't seen that so web is struggling right now. He's getting good starts but he's getting pushback he just better hope he doesn't get doesn't get it hooks in it again. Well that's why. I was gonna ask you so anderson didn't do it right. Tomac couldn't do it. Mike one wanna supercross title. Last year outdoors came when it was cold so it was weird stuff going on but outdoors came and he wasn't the guy we all thought. Hey look he got super costs. We know he's good motorcross and he's going to roll right he didn't and now we're seeing supercross champion again. Not do it. And i don't wanna make any grant announcement but i think cobwebs out of this already right. He's pretty far about. I'd say right but anyway my point is i'll start with you skip. It makes you appreciate because we haven't seen it now for a while the do go indoors and out and like i'm the baddest and super cost and i'm the baddest and motorcross 'cause we haven't seen it for a while now and it's you know there's why everybody wants to know why i like to know why and i think there's so many more variables than what we had back in the nineties to deal with But no it's it's so grueling. And these guys. These guys are riding at a gnarly level And to go full out all the time. I think one of the things i always remember. We'd go testing and we'd go out riding and we do all these things the rise be at the comfort but go to the races and they could take it up another level. It seems like now the guys that are great when they are testing and when they're out testing and trying to make the bike better there at that max level so it's gnarly on the team because it's a full race it you can't screw up you can't do nothing it's gnarly so and then so that intensity in that focus it seems like it's gotten very narrow minded are narrow. There's not very broad. So it's like if you're in your window your golden if you get out of that window seems like you're kind of screwed. I wonder like and again. I suspect for cooper web like he's a warrior right. We saw supercross like the determination and the the bull headedness that he took the way he fought. Pressure was amazing. But i almost wonder if we're in a new era where it's like. I got the supercross title. You know what i mean like. I could literally step back now and my ears but a success and outdoors is hard it is hard and i wonder if a new quote unquote so we haven't seen i think the last time we saw indoors and out was seventeen two thousand seventeen so four years ago. Maybe maybe sixteen. I almost wonder balloon if it's a little bit like i don't wanna work that hard. I just blew my mind and super costs. You know what i mean i. I'm with you and what you just said is exactly what i was thinking before. You said of cooper web The guy's a terrier. The guy is a fighter. He won indoors and outdoors What year was that city or whatever so he can do it. And whether you're whether other than the four fifty been a longer in supercross than a to fifty which for sure that there's got to be a little bit different therapy but cooper knows what it takes. I agree with you. I just feel that you know. There's so much emphasis on supercross nowadays. Not only with with even with the managers and stuff they. The number one thing is to win a supercross. No and i think like you said he you know put everything on the line one that supercross model and he just doesn't fight with that terrier he doesn't use that riding like that terrier that was super cross. He's only made the podium overawed. The national one. Time on a four fifty coupe coupons millville. He went one one two years ago. It just crushed everybody but yeah like so. I think we may be in that era. Were dudes don't wanna so much work for fifty guys. It's so much work. And so now i so now maybe we need to sit back and it really appreciate those dudes that brought it for twenty nine weekends. I mean maybe it's not that hard right. Well no no. I think it's extremely hard. Yeah no. I'm sorry. I don't know what i meant. I didn't mean that maybe it's okay so it's you know sorry i was trying to get some stats on my phone. Twenty fifteen last time dutch outdoors and out really. Yeah so we're six years of having different champions you know so i think clearly the supercross tracks have become less technical and more risky meeting. I mean you know these guys are picking up quads and do things that are just gnarly. Yeah so the amount of mental energy and focus at a takes to not die all and for that timeframe it could. There's there's no question it's going to wear you down and where and if you come up short indoors you're like hey i get outdoors. You know what. I mean so now like you're hungrier than they do to the supercross title right now. You're like wait. I need to get outdoors. Because i had. I didn't win super cost. the. I don't know i've always been i. Guess i've been around. Guys that have just been mental giants. You know done excelled at it and watching watching and talking to some of the guys. Now that have come through especially philip oto the few times we don't here and talking about it. You know it was all he could do to keep that focus on and nothing else mattered. Ricki ricky when he was going through it you know i think ricki ricki time probably probably wasn't the most approachable and personal writer to the fans on the balloon right because every of every ounce of his energy to stay focused to do what that do did on the track. You don't win every national every moto by just getting lucky yeah. It requires a tremendous amount of and then at the end of his career. I think when he started changing and not not being that gnarly dude and being the racer right. All of a sudden thinks changed. Now look at him now. He's he's the same as the kid that i met back in the early eighties when you look at ricky villa. Po two examples. That i know well. They hated to lose more than they like to win. Do you know what. I mean like when they lost. That's what drove him when they want. It's like i'm sharing. So i think that's common amongst any anybody. That's the winds. Especially if she did anybody. You will call champion i so i just think we're in the era. I i mean obviously look there will be another guy to come around the be like ricky. I don't mean with his records. But i mean i think there'll be some guy. Some point will come and crush everybody right there. Just we kind of just it's ebbs and flows in the sports. So when you know when you first mentioned this this part when you're saying that we got appreciate the mcgrath. Yeah you know the you know. The guys are the past jambi. Whatever northern every year. And when i was in it in skip was in it or whatever and i would i was on a one thousand five team or working with one twenty five guys a lot of time and i looked over and mcgrath had just won the championship. Let's say hypothetically yeah and then now he's gotta bring it for outdoor so when when they did do that. I'm like those guys. Are dude man because i realize they just won that championship and they gave their all and then for them to go out and do it for another twenty four modes. Yeah they're bad. And i think we need to appreciate those guys more. It became such a routine for the due to win indoors. And out don jr ricky james. Whatever you know. I mean just for jeremy for so long became such a thing. Where like if you want indoors you were going to probably win outdoors and now we're not. We're six years into god's ever do that yeah. He didn't so yeah. I don't know actually because the bold champion twenty four now. He missed supercars the injury so they didn't win that year he didn't go. That's what i'm curious i. I don't think that's good ya and you do that. He did it on the one twenty five and then to fifty. I'm pretty sure what do you mean. Oh one twenty five crossing and one twenty five twenty five outdoor because that's half of one twenty five season now i get it. Yeah for sure he did that. Yeah sure i'll know the problem. Was that he that stewart had most of those times this little kid name ricky carmichael. Okay so anything else on that topic gentleman. I mean because had Just you know. Things are different for whatever reason they're different. Yeah and it makes you appreciate it. I talked to her about the web thing a little bit and he said looking back. We didn't do any motocross writing during supercross. Just 'cause we're focused on catching cannon focused on winning the super garside all right and now and now rogers like men. Who have you know. I think he's sticking up for his man. I really do. I mean you know what i think. Let me ask you skip how much. When when jeremy one the supercross title and then he went out and when they outdoor title hit. James never did that race. That's why i called you on and we had three nationals before supercross that's right intermingled. So we i guess. They were forced. But i i don't know i think roger just sticking up for that's my pay yeah. I think we're going to have more appreciation as the series as years go on for the dudes who brought in fourth class question. I you know. I think the one thing that sticks out in my mind is just the how fast the guys are going. And what they're doing on the supercross track compared to what it was before think things are a little bit slower mount mile per hour. You know the not. They're not coming out record huck an eighty foot quad. Yeah you know. They're not doing those thinks. So that's all that stuff. God it wears on you. Four-stroke air definitely might what we're talking about here a lot. Even though we've seen it happened four-stroke yard. They both did but for sure and supercross a four. I mean you don't like you said it's a little so much less effort in any anybody that can do what those guys do on a sixty eight seven horsepower. Motorcycle when the supercross track. Yeah geyser nuts yup. Absolutely when he lapsed snarly five laps. What did you two gentlemen next topic next. What did you two gentlemen think of. The atlanta supercross race a but out of speedway lap-times. Lotta guys liked it. Some guys didn't. I thought it was a little bit too long. Like if you're sitting in the crowd they're they're way out on the right or the left right like not really seeing the action. However they got into fourth gear you know. The bikes got in the fourth. And it was san whoops. And so i'll start with you skip. Is there a future in that kind of supercross racing. I hope not okay all right. I like the clothes course. I like when it's tie. Yup you know where where you know you can disguise can see what's going on lane after lane you can track them down or or give up or however it's going to be just say okay just seemed i don't know all right. That's such a big fan for luke personally daytona used to be like that okay and as a fan if i'm in the stance i totally agree with skip i wanted i want something tight you know but my feeling for most of the writers and what i was reading and when i was watching on. Tv a lot of them seemed to have liked that layout different right. Yes three three races. Minute forty yeah. Yeah i personally. Because i'm watching it on. Tv i'm not there in real life. I'd be pissed vas in real life but watching it on tv eat. I enjoyed watching a little bit higher speeds. And i thought that those tracks atlanta were pretty bitch and the because they told her is not daytona anymore. Like it ain't it is a supercross now and it is tight. They expanded the pit lane Speedway did and it's a smaller footprint than it ever was. You know what. I mean like it. Ain't daytona anymore now. You like what it was hundred. What was it like one. Twenty-one thirty times middle of the day four two guys on the trump. yeah. Before when i saw there now when i started was thirty which might went by rider. Which made my right in. The main event which i was stoked on but it was forty. Yeah back in the day they would get so yeah okay. So did you ever skip work with the coster. Yes you did okay. So i wasn't sure haunt. He's gone chance working that at At honda anat's zouqi. Okay so Yeah that's right. You came back. So i was talking to the garage and i i just thinking about youtube guys both worked. Rogers says you keep you know twenty years Not twenty but thoughts on the coster. Look i'm one of those guys. And i like raj. He's as a media guy he's blunt he's honest and like you're just like as a media guy you love it right. You're roger's going to tell me what he thinks. I may not agree with them. But he's going to tell me what he thinks. I think he gets a lot of credit in other media for things that he had like signing carmichael or whatever like things. I don't know the the great red machine of the eighties. I mean those bikes were so good right like you know yes. He deserves some credit. But rogers thing is rogers Mystique i feel is really overblown right. He's smart. he's a great machinist. And is there's a lot of credit but in our sport. I feel like it's too much. Okay really i do. I do because i could. I could sign carmichael and look great manager right. I could have factory honda. Bikes look like a great manager. He missed on a lot of writers as zouqi over the years and blue. You were there for a lot of them. He missed on a lot of guys anyways but my feelings aside. Let's talk to guys who worked with. I'll start with you. Skip bur loop what did you. What do you make roger dacosta. You worked with him as a legend five world championships. Right and he was a manager for you. What your feelings on them. I mean i get what you're saying a little bit and i agree to a point. He developed and deserve the name of the man know and in this industry. It's a small industry and and people hold him at such high regard you yes that he gets that extra stuff that you're talking about and they put them at high regard me working with them. Personally you know the guy would do what ever would take to win it. Kinda like mitch payton. I think they're both similar that way. You mean as far as getting parts. They sell their house they would. They would pimp their daughter. No i'm joking okay. They will do whatever whatever cake and to me. Even at that. Point whether it be you know when i'm out there and Our teams winning the two fifty national championships. And he's telling me. I got on ninety one. Yeah he's telling me telling renard had certain special days and he was running. You know. And i'm told that i have to tell renard to back off and let alberton get the points and i'm like here's the board you do it. I'm not gonna do that. But i have to comply with what's going on team good. Yeah and i at that point at that moment in time i d i guarantee you. He would probably feel the same way if he was racing. Ain't gonna let somebody by. Yeah he was a pretty good competitor. Right yes you don't become a world champion by not but overall i mean you see someone what i'm saying but but some of it's not now he's intense. He's a he's a great manager. He'll do whatever it takes. You know This is a man that's been doing way longer than just about anybody still seems to have the fire. The look hey. Ktm i'm hired him. Snatch them away from suzuki not really want wanna pay him. Ktm often ton of money. They took an enduro bike. An enduro motor. They had and turned into a four fifty super costs bike winning bike. You know what i mean. Obviously the engineers and designers over in austria deserve a lot of that credit. But absolutely rogers pushing that right. So that's something. I think about a lot of people are he. Did the same thing at honda me would be out there burning laps out. Yup on the bike he knew what he knew what he would go and evaluate stuff still. I'm sure he's not that anymore. That's how it was before when you know problem throwing his leg over bike and going. Yeah this is what we need are this. He's still. I never did that. I always kind egg on. Rt watch you ride it or whatever. Yeah i never seen that guide. What strap his helmet on out of you. Oh fuck we have to. We absolutely skip. and so. that's no i mean. That's that's the same guy that i worked with so i had. We were there at honda for very short period of time. And it was the best thing that ever could happen for a young rider. Jeremy yup coming up. There was days where jeremy needed to hear. It was jeremy that needed to be better and there was times in the same day where he needed to hear. The bike was to be better. And there'd be days like you know. Hey i'd make sure. He talked to roger he needed when he roger needed to get on jambi for being jeremy the ryder. Then there's times. I'd make sure that roger never talked to him because he needed to hear that. The bike can do a little bit more right so i had the best of both worlds. Okay you know and there was. There were so many times where like dave. You can't talk to jeremy today right. What do you mean. You can't talk to him today. I thought i had a pretty good way of reading. Jeremy thing that was really well so you could just kind push into where. He needed what he needed this here because we didn't have data. We didn't have didn't have all the yeah. Everybody stopped watching with lie. You can lie with the stop loss. Rogers blunt back then absolutely. Yeah and what was the what was most knowledge thing. Rod you heard roger seydoux a rider. Was there when it comes to mind. Uh because the stories are legendary like ramsey and ferry like when they were there with one twenty. Five guys like roger. Just be like you guys suck. Yeah pretty much. He wouldn't hold nothing back. I know one time you know. They made larrocha stay home. You know our our d. didn't he didn't Sugarcoated he like i said with web. I think he's kind of protecting his guy. You know what we're talking about a media guide to me. This is a guy that won a champion. that's one more than one championship for this guy. The most important championship supercross right. Which to me. I'm still outdoor guy. I love both. I get the marketing and all that stuff but are d- Yeah he he would flat tell a guy goes you know. He can't make excuses. You know you gotta own up to it. I mean he would do whatever it took to win. I mean we were. We were developing supercross testing. And we're out there and he's all the jeremy's making some comments and the guys are making comments about the power and stuff and roger has an idea goes. Come on let's go. We went back to the machine shop that will imparts out. He's on the lays. I'm polish and stuff. We come back the next day. Put it on there like hey. This is great. It didn't matter whatever it took. I heard a story this week or last week from. I don't know when it was now. Wpi i andy. Jefferson told me this and he's over at husky right wbz guy. Roger made some part for the fork last year or something. I don't know what it was. Maybe cone valve bottoming valve or something. Roger made some part for fork worked really good writers like that. And then the wbz guys like. Hey where'd you get this from. Roger made this. We need more of these. And w i was like what's like whatever it was. Roger did it on a on a you know it made it so but yeah that's pretty cool. That was really cool with him. As i whether i had an idea or not d- when we were trying to make our bikes light. You know on a cam. Chain tension or yep. I go already. This thing. Looks like sherman tank. Can you whittle this down for me. And i told him kind of what i wanted to do. And he looked at it. And did what i thought woodwork. And he put his his His expertise into it and brought me back the part. That's what we raced with. Oh yeah that's cool. It was fun. Cool witnessed the firsthand right. Yeah okay yeah. I thought it'd be interesting to both your guys's stories on on on the cost. So second thing so yamaha right barsha struggling last year on the ap he looks like a different guy this year It looks phenomenal. The star guys for is leading the points as i said this yamaha. That's kinda got a bad reputation and it's heavy and big and whatever else i mean. I think it's amazing myself. But blue booker like so. We another two star guys took over the program. It should they. Should they shave the bunch of weight off of it. That's the number one thing they did. And obviously they're testing with different people in different guys. But it's still a factory. Yamaha that still work on a cyprus. The guy still work out of cyprus. So what the hell like. How can move star transform these guys because you look at a p and dylan and malcolm in supercross christian craig outdoors has like what's the deal you know there's a there could be. You have guys that that come up through the ranks and they get to. They go from amateur into fifty program. Let's say you know. Or they come from yamaha to akao sake or whatever they may be. Well it's like there's there's a transition where they know there if the teams you're on your on kawasaki now we're not making it a yamaha you know. So there's that whole transition thing that needs to take place there. There might be a little bit of that going on between two fifty and four fifty so that they are very different motorcycles. Where before they were not so different. And i think now that the there's a big difference between a fifty horsepower in the seventy works power motorcycle. Maybe it's just the fact that both of those guys are now back with what they grew up with. Connor teeth with gained all their confidence one their title around them. Just you know. Maybe it's a comfort zone. They're just back in their comfort zone. Maybe the comfort sounds a little bit bigger than it was. What do you think. I like with barsha for example or no Ap he's hurt last year. I don't think he's a good example. Okay i don't think that bike has changed except for the inception when they first reverse the motor and they've made a couple along the way but made it lighter. They've change the frame feud. Yeah i don't think there's been anything. Earth shattering for the last four years. Would you agree with that. Nothing earth shattering. Now yeah so. I personally think the bike is can be made to win races and it's evident this year ra right. Yeah so i truly believe that It's one of those deals where you know barsha struggles on it and you know you get somebody that you know. Toxins that has no front phil and blah blah blah. But i think he can if you can work the people maybe it star guys like you said and i didn't know they star guys got that great a guys over there. I figured yamaha would be able to make the bike better than i mean. I've always said like you and you know this from the h. Days like like any like japanese that having a direct line to the people that make the motorcycle design. The motorcycle in japan is a massive advantage factories. That is where your your advantage comes in. You know and i'll say absolutely. Yeah but over. What period of time are you talking about right because you have windows in time. Where if you're if you feel like you really need to do something and make something really different and go opposite direction. What the factors doing. Sometimes that doesn't happen and maybe not having. Maybe maybe opened up the ability to church to try some different avenues. Maybe maybe that we're limited. I i have no idea. Yeah i mean. I think it's funny. They're working on the cyprus where it is funny and the bikes better than ever and they got top three guys. You know all the time now and it's just like so as all of are still looking over those go. No he's been gone for alverson. Gone been gone for. Who's the guy over the other. Yeah jeremy cokie manager. And i don't know rory rory i'm talking about. Oh yeah like a yamaha guy jim roach is was there race guy ahead of yamaha now I don't know who. I don't the chesa guys still there all the i think it's all over. Yeah and being in. Cyprus been now they're moving back to the farmer. Yeah yeah so. I if you're not. I do think that there is something that the factories in the japanese are very conservative. You know that they don't make big changes so if you can have a team you know that is supplied by. Maybe they don't have factory equipment so to speak but they can go a different way and maybe make the gas more comfortable. Make him happier like what. You're kind of saying i. I assume that's what you're yeah. Yeah so maybe that's case but it's crazy. They're working at yama down there. Underneath yomas thumb horrendous. His mechanic is working in my old bay. I read your article. That was funny. All the greatness starts in that bag brian. Keaney funny me on and on down so number one right. Yep yep i pay who knows. Maybe they're shopping in you know in What temecula wasn't just couldn't handle okay. What space. Yeah yeah it's something because napa pretty quick you know it seems happened really quick all right next topic here Fly racing twenty skip norfolk. God we got a lot of wins between us three. Yeah a lot of wins. I've got one. I got one. Just remember that we do and some across. Does we know this today. No okay all right. Sounds good next topic. This isn't the question asked by the listeners. But i thought it would be good for you guys if you didn't have to travel because we know were you traveling. Now you don't ever want to travel anywhere and skip. I don't know you know you you've done enough of it to if you didn't have to travel so just like i dream. Eugenie timely reference by the way blink blink in your there which nationals the best one that go to. Don't talk about the flying or you know. Don't talk about the length of line just the best national goto you talking to me or she either either. One wants to chime in here at sky. Trak fans you know whatever brewery nearby whatever it is strip club. I was always a big fan of bunch creek. I mean it was home but even going back. I thought the fans are great. You could see so much of the track. The terrain everything about it was good Batman and red bus to some for her will fill that story. That wasn't a chick. Snipes the snipe. Exactly here we go. I got caught it. Okay for me to read all right Berlin for you. Which one i i say the only i did love Budge creek yup. When i first set foot there and went there without is amazing you know but matt it is like a toilet in the summertime down there during and so he is still say the hottest i've ever been ninety eight budd's creek ever been. I thought i was going to pass out in mechanics era that that'd seven troy ohio o i swear budgets hotter try was north was bad for me. It'd be either a red bud but probably millville. I like the diversity of melville. I think that track is bitching. It's probably not the best spectator track. Because you kinda gotta move around a bit like hang town my worst track that i personally that i've written i hate but it's probably that or colorado. The dictatorship can see every okay. But i i'd have to say millville for me all right. Sounds good when the semi trucks coming in Kelly was the first one in ninety three ninety two ninety three cowie. I wanted to have a yamaha. Many cowry was then then. Yeah i'm right right behind it. Honda was the last one we were by far. Did you guys like that or hey. I was box van. You never went to the semi but you did it to after. Yeah after when you came this. Yeah oh yeah right when you got choppered in why went missing and you had to come and help larger sheltered roger told story about that and he said that the honda throttle cable. And the it wasn't open the slide all away and they were looking at the throttle cable and they slide because the throttle cable was a honda. One and it wasn't wasn't the right at honda. Partial better than gas. And the roger told us that jeremy slide but only open whatever ninety percent confirm or deny i could have. That was before me okay. Yeah i thought that was. Maybe when you came in yeah. I thought you were coming into today to help it. No i don't. I don't came in outdoors right. Read but yeah. That was like i felt bad for you that day. Just got thrown in like Try to do everything. I could to help them. Or whatever but yeah. I mean just like into the fire at this little rock and had been for the two of you have been that weekend was gnarly mike. Big mike not much help. Oh was okay all right okay. All right absolutely guys were attention on the team that year right. Yeah i personally I didn't like the semi at first. And then later. I come to like it. Yeah but there's nothing like the box days. I mean we had so much fun and the you know the writer mechanic thing was way more of a. Oh yeah you know what i'm saying. Absolutely no for sure.

Of course max and rental all aboard the fly racing racer x podcast. Here all right so it is time for some listener. Questions pulled these up from instagram. Thank you for everybody for. Send them over skipped. We just got a new one. What's this going. Super mini super many. A contemporary american lager should be totally. Crushable i did not have a super mini growing up. I had a a one zero five with the normal wheels. It's not quite as superman so okay so again. You guys complete the fifth on these questions. But i am going to ask a perfect. So don't shoot the messenger hair. Just shoot the people who ask these questions all right here. We got a ton of responses on instagram. Not going to ask all of them but irs berlitz best pulp show memory. That's my question for me. The best pulp show memory of when i was on it or yeah okay and i i. I'm not good at this. Okay all right. I liked when you freak out about the swing when unless he hit your swing arm. And you're yelling about your swing. Okay yeah and we need somebody shirt fly yeah kind of like the one about the poon teen poon tain you were telling me about putin and i'm like what i was thinking you were talking about. No it was poon tune it was a peut was. That's literally the drop we have. Oh dirt shark has a pontoon boat. Okay and two. Were very confused. Okay so alright for most can wait. I skipped first memory of jeremy. Your first memory. Jeremy mcgrath again. I think you've said this loretta. Lynn's yeah was. Let's see class on the on. The we're sitting up there and going is from california. He's you cheating here right for sure up in the c. class. What about you first time. You saw jeremy mammoth mountain. What was he on. he was on. Yamaha's okay three classes at one day her that week and so i. I just heard buzz. You know this kid named jeremy mcgrath used to be a bmx guy blah blah blah. He's good he's he's coming along is an intermediate that day and i think you have problems on the want. Twenty-five i think one twenty five was the first day to fifty five hundred. Maybe on anyway so he struggled a one day. Okay so i'll keep my eye on them. And then i. I happen to be racing of open intermediate that weekend. I'm gonna run around seventh. And i hear this air hammer yamaha. Just fly by me and the guy goes and just destroys everybody. I guess the finish. And then i think i saw on the last day. Just destroy everybody on to fifty. I think you know something like that. And i told my brother hal and you know you gotta yeah. Keep an eye on this guy. Yeah there's a photo of him for. I think for mammoth in the class. And he's got showtime on the back of his pants. Yeah it's like bro. You put show tom on the back of your pants. As an intermediate he lived up to. That's ballsy goes back to your goes back to what you said about all those guys. They hate the hate get losing. They like winning matthew. For terrell says yuki crush one twenty five class for many years. Why was going to fifty suzuki so hard on careers for everybody but rc. Look he look at you. Know anybody jumped on barham. Fifty chicken larry ward rocco any. Personally i think it goes back to this whole debate about the arm being good or bad in all of sudden they're great I just think the perfect storm or whatever you wanna call it We had decent fifties The year that mcgrath wrote him they were terrible. There are turds So it took a lot to try to make them good that year. I'd say we were underpowered. It wasn't the best bike but Prior to that. I mean we had good writers together. Bikes were decent they. They were winnable They they were one on one on them but just on occasion. You know I can't tell you why they got it all together and didn't actually win a championship so to speak to albee. It went from two fifty class. It went from. I think howard him to albee really outdoors. I think so. Yeah yeah forever. It was a long way so yeah barnette didn't win. I don't know but didn't then you guys have some assistance from outside. That's he's like. Rnd group and those guys on your twenty-five or was it all factory supported. Believe it or not. We didn't have a ton the stuff that we got came over from japan and we had no. We started using the bills pipe and then later on maybe start using pro circuit. Is that what you're asking. No i just. I i thought i remember the rnd group and all those guys. It seemed like you had you had some more. Us after i hate to aftermarket companies but back. Then that's referred to him as seemed like you had a lot of assistance or you had a lot of avenues. You could go for different things on your one twenty five program that you weren't allowed to go to the program but i have no idea i i hear what you're saying it was it was howard in eighty one to albee in ninety nine. I was really proud of myself. I just pulled that out for you anyways so now. I speak for me personally with with with Damon pretty much what. The factory supplied us other than like i said a pipe. The pipe at other net between you know. Roger came on and in Ninety five so ninety four before roger was there it was pretty much rate other. Give gimme parts but you also got. I think you need to go back even further back than that. Go back into the late eighties early eighties and late eighties. The feeder program was amazing rain. It was that was fourteen. I mean they were those guys. They were factory writers. Or even that was the perception even hepler millsaps. Pastrana really came on. That was a great fan of good amateur to the feeder program was awesome tichenor terp turpin tissue or and has all those guys all right ozzie. Mechanical says favorite tool in your toolbox of means now are all time or whatever favorite tool man. I had a handmade titanium eight millimeter. Many t handle. I had a japanese spoke wrench. Tour talks torque. Japanese one was coho talk. Seattle okay yeah. That's a tough one. I i liked stuff. Probably my air gauge in the two stroke days. My my air gauge. I know this the same question's been asked before but right now in my mind. I mean something that really helped me to make the do the best i could with my bike. Something like that. i'd say like My my my gauge. That told me how much air what they called a density. Okay yeah yeah. Yeah for sure How does it feel to be from honey from iraq's how does it feel to be such bad as legends. Can they retire comfortably. who rock. who iraq's would we talk again that the gentleman's name is who iraq. Oh what's the question again. How does it feel to be such bad ass legends. And can they retire comfortably. Bad ass legends as me and skip norfolk. Yeah we'll skip. Did you see what he drove here. Today you didn't see that new nsf. That's okay the new one. The new one. Yeah and you saw what i'm driving. I've got a new dodge bitch and ramtruck okay. Yeah that's the one. That's the raptor beater. Okay so we know and can they retire comfortably. I mean you're both still working. So no i'd say knows the answer. Who what mechanic made the most. Do you think. I mean louis. Got a ton of bonus money but he. That was a long time ago fro. Al jaber made a lot of money. Bonus money hooked him up. Pretty good i mean. Is there a guy that made a ton of money. It's hard to say. Good i i i think you should be up. There might say houston okay you he would never tell you okay so i'm not totally sure but i do know the one year or the two years i think it was two years at when carmichael i came on the scene and he had. Who was i mechanic at honda. Honda tally kelly. And honda chad. Watts made a lot of money. I mean his home. And you know so cal temecula wherever he was. I heard ninety one on the hill. Right yeah something. Like that. And i heard his furnishings. Were unbelievable. I mean i believe somebody said he made really good money. Okay skipped they want. Racism assume so all right from burden bike. They always wished they worked on. What was a bike. The you guys always wished you'd worked on. I'll go with one of those factory. Hondas i mean good god For myself you know what else. I think it would have been cool to have been back in the seventies late seventies early eighties as a mechanic. 'cause you you would have been a fabricator because you basically got your bike in a bag. Yep i mean you had to weld on all your radiator brackets pipe brackets. I mean there was a lot of stuff that was going on back in those days on the works days when i came along and and ninety three you know the works honda days we had we got we got. We go to japan. You get a whole motorcycle. Wasn't it was really. I'd i would love to take it apart though right you get in a box and then you take apart what we'd go to japan. You would usually go to japan. The new bike. We'd do some testing. Do those few rates japan. Then you'd send them home and that'd be the start of it. But i would really love to go back into the seventy s during the transam series and all that time and experienced that part of the racing but that was the days where the writers had to be like. Hey man i can't jump this all way to the bottom because my bike will break like. I can't do everything i want to do. As a writer because part of the skill is get through these two motives. You know it was. It was about survival. Yeah berlet i. I agree that probably a. What was it Eighty four honda's eight forty five well before it went to the claiming rule went to production. So yeah eight hundred forty five those things with the bitch and tanks. The ones tiny little radio. Don't twenty five on one side and then along radiator a fuel pump right. Yeah the milk bottle reservoir on the shock and stuff. Those are cool. But i i like skip. There's dick bugsy man. Are you familiar with that guy. So that guy was amazing. not only was he eraser. That guy built chassis. I mean he. I wish i could have been that good exactly. I would've liked followed him and done what those guys did. They started with rigid frames in flat. Track in somebody told me they would take their shocks right and just change the mounting point. Lay down the shah former badger did and it would be like. Hey okay well. Two millimeters worked. Let's go four six. Oh six doesn't work back to four. You know what i mean like. It was all trial and error. We call it country racing or whatever whatever you wanna call it. I mean it was. It was trial and error. Right from this mike. Donovan's question this gentleman word. When did you notice. Things were changing to the pits. Box vans too big rigs and what did you think. We covered that a little bit. But when did you first hear that cowan was going to semi. What did you think they remember those days. Do you remember like hearing about it or first time showed up. Did you did you. Did you know it was coming when they showed up in orlando or like you know what i mean your little bit because jeremy jeremy aubrac and i we spent some time together okay and that was the that was the buzz was that hey these guys are gonna show up with a semi when that thing showed up. You're just like wow yeah you know. It was pretty frigid. Y'all go tour right away. Do you get in there and be like. Hey at turner shane. Now let me go. Look no no no. It wasn't like that you know. Because i think we still had enough respect. At least i felt. I did that because we were on the box vans and we would we. There was a group of us at all drove together every weekend. If we had a box fan problem man whatever took at the box van together right but that we get to the races. We could be at the same hotel. We could park two spaces apart and nobody was ever gonna jump in anybody's box van or try to figure anything out questions or anything. It was just like you guys do what you do. We're going to do what i do. And then let's go have dinner tonight right right right. Yeah that that'd be with me too. I just. I'm not that guy. This is gonna. There has guys have done it that you might archie on the other team. What are you doing in my box. Man you climb up on the bumper and like your motors motor be open. And they'd be like every yeah. Some people have no shame in their game or whatever. But you know going back to the semi thing i i looked at him in awe and then people you would hear about. Hey did you hear the upstairs. Scotch this and they've got a lounge and you know blah blah blah and your. That sounds cool. But i don't think i ever saw one until our first sukey built right. Funny how they used to. Everyone had minivan in their semi right. Everyone minivan when i came out and nobody did. We did nobody. Does i think hondas off salary. But that's about it can't doesn't carry a truck around. Nobody carries trucks around. I don't think they ain't. Nobody carries them anymore. Yeah yeah but but everyone they might drive behind. Yeah yeah we did suzuki. Yeah where from. This is from john sturgeon. Where's the old snnu rig now. S e w. I have a box that was that was that was old name. The company name. Oh that was a long. That was before. I even started working. Mukasey new era something. Yeah skip norfolk. Engine works box fan. Or what is he talking about. Then we had a trailer trailer was bracco. Sixteen foot trailer. Okay that we pulled behind the motorhome that we painted all my brother sean. Sean did all the artwork and we painted it all up. No idea where. That's all right. Tie sergeant says would you rather. I'll start with uber. Ludi would you rather you're right or win. A supercross title without winning a race or model title with winds super title without winning a rice. Tim berry in in ninety seven or moto with a bunch of wins. Well i mean there's so much emphasis on supercross. But i have to go with moto with win with winning outdoors. Yeah i think every every even every rider wants to win and getting that title. There's gonna be something that's always in the back just going man. I never wanna race right now. And i hate that You know it's a series. It's called a series of a reason. Yeah but i agree. I think there's that and that's what drives those guys. And that's what makes them so special because they they they want that they're they're spoke to have the title but deep down they just one one remain look at look at. What's his chops on the aha this week or two weeks ago and he wrote amazing. You know he. He got the overall. He got a pair of two friends. you know. not for is cooper cooper. Yeah france when the overall this week with two two and a cooper won the overall lakewood. Okay okay all right. But cooper was really dejected. He was not happy and then he goes and wins this this last week. One moto and kind of going away. He didn't get the overall but he see more happy. Maybe that kind of answer. Your question has got a bunch of questions. here's another one skip. Couldn't have ranged for. Mci in ninety six. Which ryder woody of wanted. any team. Vacate up get up. Became open because of the gambling that poker that ever up black to gamble T gill freed. What part of the race bike did you give the most attention to for loot part of the race by the most attention to i mean it would have to be the engine for me. I mean for one we back in the day. That's what we did. We there was no. They didn't go back to the shop era in the motor shop so we did the engine. We had suspension guys so For sure the engine. I hate it in the force as the amount of time. Do your carburetor You know what. I mean enforced so for me. That was me. I'd say the carburetor even on the because it was so i mean in order to squeeze everything we were getting out of those two strokes and the response arguing it had. It had to be spot on the engine. The engine for me was it. Was i guess it was just. We had our spec. We know our settings. We had our measurements. We knew you could put you just put the thing together properly. But the carburetor you had to massage it you had to tweak it every day going back to the the air density gauge. That's the one thing that controlled everything. Now you have programs on the computer from clay underscore six seven seven would mcgrath's ninety six honda have been competitive at the end of the two stroke era so oh five right. Oh four or five or six. That's the end of the two stroke air. What is ninety six crtv have been competitive. Absolutely abs- fucking lutely really today this to me today. That motor is still. I mean i've ridden them. You know i. I work on bikes a lot. And i i've rodent fuck that bitch and right now and that's a production slaving a factory right okay. Best story from grant grant ham. Excavating grant ham activating excavating best story about prototype. Par parts never made production anything that you didn't ever the coolest thing you had to deal with our work with. You tested beryllium calipers. For example. you know. Brilliant the material. We had those pretty cool. Yeah you had them for a while but man then he broke. One broke people talked about just machining. That shit how dangerous i. Yeah yeah totally. Yeah because they told me before. I got there became the bleed screw and the brake line. Were too close to each other to get a wrench on and so became like filing it. I guess and they were like dude really stop poisonous but anyways what about free you guys man. Different things that we test that we never used see. I guess for us. I came up. I came up in that era. Where we it was production-based. You know i would've loved to ask that question to you. Know it's one of those guys that were backing back in the days. I i remember. I remember going to. Hr see and we're walking out and you know there's boxes and boxes boxes of titanium exhaust pipes you know just boxes level. They had thai pipes all the time and yellow guys. So no but i i can't. There's nothing really that sticks out of stuff that we tested that we didn't use because we were we were at the point. Now we were at the point. Where if we if we couldn't use it. Why even mess with it. Because we weren't about developing point. It was about racing. So i i mean for i guess it would have had to been when we went honda. I started doing. The aluminum chassis testing. Yeah right because we did. We were able to do a lot of that stuff. In the off season that never really came to fruition. And then when it did come to fruition things that you know that we were able to us when we'd go into the production side of things the processes which which had the effect on aluminum thing would actually the first one you see though. Look the same as the ninety seven like a box road race extrusion parts pretty much the same. It was the everything would be. We're we're all the yolks were and everything would come together. We're all machined out a bill. That i right now. We all know that partnership made bill and then something then a die. Cast chander chandler is the best story because he helped develop that thing and they was bitching and it was awesome and then he wrote the production by like what happened happened. They're like we afraid of breaking and so they started throwing material on it and he's just like that was a big deal. That was the same way there was things. I mean we were tested. We were over there testing that we wrote the production bike and was like whoa. I like to tell. Shane drew that. He was the reason. Jeremy latin because chain was going to be as mechanic so i was remind. Shane and chase mcgrath. John shane berlin. What about you. I would say your pipes like brought that up. You guys have pipes pretty cool. Yeah but that. The cost of that wasn't going to go to production. You know you knew that the question. The question was the best story about the prototype. Part pipes parts that never made production. Okay what i mean. So yeah no we out some. But i think like swing ran his a couple times on different contracts or different things but unfortunately we got these bad ass type pipes with damon and i had it on my bike and we tested it. You know and damon said no. I like that pro circa one better. I was so bummed it was the most. It's the most beautiful thing there is. It's it's my holy grail. I have one of them. Yeah dustin throw says best. The road trip in the box fans the best road trip. I mean god with you guys sick road trip. We got you know the gambling. I mean we play pay cards while you're driving arriving. That was insane nuts. That was queen a heart. Th the the one that sticks out for me was hey guys. I got a shortcut. Then it was two hundred miles of dirt road. That day up in montana was i that was marshall. I don't know if you're with us on. The i don't it was no there was always you. I got a shortcut. Because jeremy jeremy had family that lived up there and so we stopped going there one time and then we found this shortcut. Because you cut off going to wash hugo from troy to watch yugo you could cut off the whole corner and there was no speed limit. You could run ninety miles an hour but then there was a shortcut where you could go through the national park or whatever and and do reservation land. We get there one time. And then they're redoing the road and it's dirt road and you're to the point where you're committed eighteen hours to go back the way you were. Oh man the box vans were. They were hated because i had to air filters clogged up. It couldn't see it was horrible and you got blamed as my well. I think it was the same trip if i'm not mistaken. But what's we caught on the regular road. I'm doing ninety. No problem and i get pulled over. I think i'm going to jail. I mean i'm fucked guy. Give me a five dollar ticket for wasting energy because it was wide. Open up their rights. Yeah yeah so. As wide open mic call god. That was awesome. What was the worst part that you guys had to run We had we had pistons from. I don't know i'm just. I'm inserting my own stuff in here to help you. Guys give you guys time to think we had pistons that were supposed to last us Ten hours and they would crack after four or five and we were like. Why are we running these pistons. They're breaking like they're supposed to go ten hours and they're breaking on these guys and we were so mad as mechanics and we were just told. These pieces were running. And we're like so nobody else makes. Fourteen one piston that we have these are the only company in existence that makes a fourteen to one. Compression pistons differs on your show. This is the fourth stroke. Yeah so that's that's an example for me. The worst part. You had to run from tom. Eight ninety the first year. We had a graphic company come in and do graphics. We had spent so much time at honda getting their bikes down to the weight limit And how gosh knows how much money we spent on titanium in different parts and stuff and then all of a sudden plastic in the days irs. This is okay and then all of a sudden we go to where we go there. There were using all of our stuff right then. We get our new race plastic and oliver graphics and we go to put them on the bikes fricken heavy. What the hell they. We gotta run them. I go you guys. You guys are not so. They're they're sponsor the team but but how much do we pay for all these parts to get us down to the weight limit because back then we were at two hundred sixteen pounds. Was that the way limit back there. Yeah two hundred sixteen so this is heavy sixteen or eighteen. I thought it was too. Oh seven no want maybe one twenty five hundred ninety six ninety six hundred six hundred. I thought it was like to change to grab run them. And we're like him all year. They worked on sixteen. Was the number sixteen. Wait let part. Well you're talking about folks. But yeah i mean we add pistons that we ought to change between motos on our one twenty five. We're trying to get everything out of these one twenty-five these cup one or two year. These things were so we just didn't have the power you know we're t we're going against lamps and shit you know on the honda. It was eating us up and read dog. Said you had a piston that all the time in the middle of modal crack and catch the exhaust port. All the time. Haven't quite a bit so we had a change in between motos. That's that was fun. Yeah i got an hour. Let me do top end here. Yeah okay skip ever experienced. This is from a real mike jones. It's skip ever experience honda. Corporate overreach with him or jeremy. Did you ever get like you know. Well i think you know. I think there was some time with the writers. You know that they would you know. Hey what do you do for a living. I throw rocks and then they. Hey we're going to put you in this class house. No by the way you can't rocks anymore right so there was some there was that Not not so much on the on the mechanic side. I mean we had. We had some things that were unique little clauses in contracts and we have two different things because of exposure problems. That had how before i got there. What do you mean we have some different things. We had the we had different clauses in there about having to share. If you had a spare motor that was actually in a contract. Yeah there was some things like that. Rj santon yes so so but probably i from mechanic standpoint really didn't experience a lot of that because i was there. I was very fortunate when we got there. Because arnold are taking the flak for you from a bit of an even. Even you know roger. Roger went to went to suzuki. And therefore couple years to fifty supercross was a number one priority for honda motor corporation japan over formula one racing. Everything see that's so in ninety four. That's when we got we had data acquisition. That showed up. We were doing a ton of chassis testing. We were doing so much testing and now you know now fast forward in understanding what was coming along in ninety five ninety ninety four five and six is that trying to develop that. We didn't have any idea they were developed women and stuff but now now going back when we when we first were made aware of it. Everything that we were learning here was being applied there and that was that was the coolest time so we didn't we didn't it was the exact opposite. It was wide open. Yeah there's some great stories about like So after bail got hurt in ninety five nationals. They gave washable broken arm and they gave the they gave hausky bales. Motor and cliff had been in there grinding and was way better than his bike. Right then guy. Cooper tells the story about having a set of works folks and lunacy being like i want those back. Those are mine and then cooper's like but you have. I i need another spent like lunacy just taking guy. Cooper's works folks back because they were for rj. Or whatever right. That was the kind of going on. Yeah i had i had. We had zero experience with all of that. Is i think that point there was a there was a transition coming. Do things different. Did you have things like that. Go on oh yeah. Oh yeah for sure. Parts like that when cooper. That was my first year like in ninety nine. I was on the team. We had about twenty guys on our but Yeah for sure. There's there's some other there's no way guy. Cooper wins at title without morocco. And larry ward pulled over form. Yeah so many racist and that's fine. I'm not just say so. Many cooper hall who can i was i was I think he deserved it. I you're you're kinda discount or making it worse than it was. You don't like cooper. I do well then. Jeez i read a bunch of cycle news word like rocco and larry ward because they jump back then it was the media fucking just nolan it up but in says larry award winning and then larry ward pulls over for guy cooper for sure. That's all i'm saying. I agree but you said so. Many times seem like a lot fucked himself the beginning or something happen to write what was twice what larry let brock by off twice. Okay dark side. Some guy named dark side said what's the best some guy named actually. Is it the same dockside you know. I don't know what's the best perk or coolest experience that you had because of your job. That isn't racing related. So what's a cool you know. Did you get to go somewhere because of who you are or what you're doing you know what i mean and there was. I mean there was a lot. I'd say a lot a lot of yeah you. There was a lot of perks. Especially when you you know with a champion for sure you would. Yeah yeah. I around any examples. I mean going at the biggest thing that sticks out to me was we. We're going to pay us for the supercross. We get an early and they're like hey there's a there's a couple of bands plan you wanna go hang out with them it was. Acdc and scorpions awesome right nine backstage. We were there. Yeah right exactly what. Dockside would wanna hear those shit like that happen. Yeah there stuff. Like that fisher. I mean he hit the nail on the head Well i mean. I loved going to italy for separate erase. Those guys took us took such good care of us. We ate the unbelievable. The best italian food there was. They had us in this bitch and lake house. It was bad ass and They even. I was able to stay there after the race. And take my wife of the time and we would cruise know that whole lake lake. Rocco lakela rocco's lake little rocco castle. That sat up there in the middle. Rock shirt was steph like that. That was really cool. But i mean the weird stuff is he may be desert. Wanna here is with the company. Like company perks like bitch and lease cars for my wife so she i'd have to worry about getting in her. You know fixing her car. Every year suzuki out of the program and they would You would have to turn it in every year so the thing was meant every year and the price that we had a pay was unbelievable. Okay all right from six one. Four paul more chicks while out on the road. Well i was married. i think skip. Why won't speak for him. But i was married. So i named the only chick that i pulled was my wife when i got home. Okay yeah no. It was all about racing. all right. gotta go out of that one. Didn't he them. So that was bayard rope mayor. Okay i see conference. Eighty nine with skip wrench for showtime if he made already comeback absolutely okay. that'd be cool from spear ranch. Best strip club story. Don't go there. I got a good girl now. She hears this. I'll be fucked over long ping pong balls. I mean we have anything like that. There are some of the other some of of those stories but cable move along. Houston okay houston from shane montreal. Best memorable trip because gonna have chips boy. Gosh i'm out of this one. Yeah there are some trips you all these are now so christner getting married where you have I kid cameras. We got video cameras and and Hey we're going to. We're going to have sooner. Camera broke camera. No problem there. You go so get camera back and this is years later. We're going through. We're trying to convert everything over from the little super eight one so we're just going through watching stuff and from avenue named civitas writers in there were sitting there. My wife looks at me and she goes was that shit. You guys thank you. Watch it again. You'll never see me in any one of those cavern. It was like oh my god. I beg god. I wasn't on one of them. That was the guy holding video care. What about the southwick. Thank god there weren't cellphones. You guys would have done. Oh i wasn't part of that. I was married. But i heard stories the next day i got called haber. Luke come down. I probably better not whatever see me. And i made sure i was holding the camera at davy. Bmx skip. How hard was mc on his bikes that he break a lot of parts or was he pretty easy. I think we know he was. You could tell if if i just pulled apart the engine. Pull the the chassis. I could tell what kinda day had days. Where he when he was on. He was on and the bike was pristine and there was a fee. Struggled with something you could tell on but it wasn't. He wasn't hard on motorcycles. He was he wrote light on a bike from all underscore. Td all underscore up all tied up. When will we have a live pulp. Show at huddle brewery co host mcgrath and skip have we. We gotta do a little work. There it's a little loud. We've got some things we've got a. We didn't have the budget to get done. So okay soon as we Since we clean some things up there that would be awesome. I'd love to check that out. Uh from jimmy. One sixty one skin jeremy ever test the rear calipers that honda made for j. m. b. Oh yeah okay. Oh yeah no ran. Ran it for a few races National wise and then. Then something's changed. We found was a brake fluid was a big one that changed And they went with a little bit in production. They made a little bit bigger caliber on those same lines. Didn't have all the bad aspin's cooling stuff like that but we ran that thing for better part of the year too. Many cows says is loot working on local suspension or motors. He is in vegas here. John people if Email me using the contact pop right. Sure said it to you. Yeah that'd be work you're busy but you. You can find time for work when he's not fishing. Yeah yeah camping fishing in high altitude where. It's nice and cool instead of one hundred seventeen. If skip worked from evan james seven oh six skip work for tony guy and vice versa. Tony sky what could or would they do differently. I'd like to think that nothing would have changed. Okay we said we were. We were supporting cast in this list. That's how i felt right. Well thank you. I think i think the personalities of two people are really important. And i think skipping jeremy were amazing they are not saying that. I couldn't work for germany because at first when when jeremy came over to suzuki. I my respect for that guy grew immensely. That guy would test till the cows come home because we had a bike. That wasn't that good. But jeremy was trying to with roger. Help every do everything they could extract temper tantrum or nothing like never. That guy was amazing from rb special one three eight absolutely what his favorite memory of growing up in northern nevada favorite memory. Probably the day that My brother came back racing. And i was at a high in my little area. You know running number two in the area and Going around that first corner. And i see my brother on the outside because he hadn't been racing awhile and i'm like there's no fucking way my brother's gonna beat me today. As i take off this next jump and just car will break my femur femur and rest so yeah that was probably the best day of my life. Well brandon what memorabilia. Skip out from his time with mcgrath. I've got a couple of cool pieces. Yeah got whole front end of the of Works by not the whole front but four sorta clamps down to bars and all that stuff. And i've got the number The fifteen o one the first title and a little note that he put on it That's cool that's pretty cool yep absolutely mag triple clamps back then no. They were aluminum. Yeah we add matt clamps at one time the top one top one. Yeah we did to keep and favorite tool brand when working as a mechanic. I mean snap on on me. Yeah that goes back to the one question. You asked earlier about Perks the team. Not perks but this guy got a lot of free. Step onto the team thing. Where i've had snap on my whole life since i started working in the industry since i started working at dealership level and collected and collect collect f- snap on stuff and i'm told by upper brass than i got us cornwell and mike. How about if. I use my snap on tools. In the cornwall box. No you gotta use real. While i said you mother efforts so yeah so for a year or two until we got snap on sponsor a couple of years later i had to work with cornwall tools. And they weren't bad at the end of the day but god that was worth now. It's tough How about that when that that that thirty snap on gun came out the battery powered like gun to do clutches or whatever. That just changed the game for me. I'm like oh my god impact send. It was a giant problem now. Stuff that small from seth from above what is skips favorite thing about owning huddle met. I just like racing met some really cool people we have. We have some. We have some customers now. That we that. We call the raiders. And they're just it's awesome and sitting around. I can sit around and talk about beer just like sit around talking about motorcycles. That's cool. I love it Jesse finders nine eight. Mount rushmore picks. So we've been doing this thing on the broadcast and we'll talk about on our show and you're let's let's give you a couple of rules here. It's got to be american because my russia's american right so american writers supercross and motocross. Gimme your four. What a year. What year any. Just give me your four. Any from american riders supercross motor. I said it. It's our see. It's it's james it's mc and i'll probably go villa filipo for the four r. Would be right in there for me. Rj you throw away. Villalpando put rj see. That's that's tough because you're that's all current right you know and and so it's all current i mean i. I don't know how you cannot have our see an mc on there right but how could you not have hannah exactly. If you're in that. Air of hannah. He would go on there right away would stay there until the next era whatever But if you're looking at championships probably hanan might not be up there. You tell me your own personal marshawn on and you have so you have stewart an rv. I mean how can i mean. There's there's no reason why you can't. That's bad astronaut. in rushmore. no question about it and i think. Rj obviously you got injured would have won three four five more title. He was amazing unbeatable. Right yeah you know. I it's Gosh there's just you got to go back to the you know I just i look. I go back to the late seventies and eighties and you know you look at some of these guys that you know what. What's your criteria. I it. What's the criteria mount. Rushmore did you. Did you change something or did you really change how things were done you know. How could you not think about. Yeah for sure for sure. Mardi stripes your personal amount. I don't know where. Where are you at the loot for sure are see. I mean it one one that i have to ask. Is this super kassir. Outdoor motocross together. Rc emcee I would like to say yes Villapando okay and. I have to say i. I know i'm gonna miss something. And it may be debated but skip. Mitch and hannah was amazing. He was the most sought after guy. Everybody loved that guy. I'll say hannah and hannah. In when he came back honda he was the best rotter bailey. Us bomber he was best. He's got hurt. Yeah use guy. He just kept getting hurt so he would have had more. Titles what what ryan did four years in a row. It's just amazing I like james and james changed. The sport can dungy. And james. I left james james. James james changed the sport. Just you know just as much changed this. As much as ricky change sport than jeremy changed the sport. And then you know jimmy came along going to be fast for five laps. And i'm gonna watch everybody. Then ricky comes along goes where you better do it for ten or you better do it for the whole race. James comes along. I'm just gonna go faster right. So i mean you start talking about that stuff and it's easy to talk about it. 'cause we lived it but how can you not have hand on the list. I mean James is still only has four championships. he's second all-time though in wins indoors and out second all time in win race win so to me. That's a that's something so you need to figure out a way to put six more. Brad tillis wants your best chicken story. Best chicken story. Oh wow there's worked form. Yeah he was he was really good. My family i at that point in time he. I didn't see no crazy chicken stories. I know the guy was an animal in a rental car. yeah i. I'm drawing a blank right now. I i just remembered that my the best or have is his dad first time zone. Yeah he was still team green just before he got the where where my first trip to vegas them but nineteen. I guess it was and we go up in this. We're in this really nice restaurant. And i had no idea who mr mattessich was right so we get pulled into this back room. And it's it's really thing and he's all talking about this and this man you shitting rips the menu in have come on. Let's go downstairs going gambling. Okay let's go. Nineteen nineteen sit down there and he goes come on. We're playing craps. I'm sitting in. I'm rolling the dice number on the dice had never had you know a dice. The dice people are everybody's high fiving. This had the dice for thirty minutes. I get all these people are making tons of money by it out there which is high five me. I just met the guy in our go. All right that is that's my story. It says more than anything else. I do remember one quick. When we went to japan one year. I went over there with with chicken and we get there and i could probably make this better if i remembered more but I just the cab driver didn't speak lick of english and chicken is just fucking with this guy all along the way like rubbing his head and just kinda like just and i'm like dude. What are you doing. I mean we're gonna fucking end up shitty place and get fucking rolled or something you know. But he's fucking with this dude. I'm like in any east funny about and happy about it but the guys like not having you know from t- reese confirmation skip that you and jake weimer did go out back to discuss his career. We did okay because he brought that up a lot since immaculate right right okay Ymer was on our show talking about it. Oh wow he was a little tipsy and kept bringing up skip. Took me back and we're like we got it got it. That's interesting yeah all right. Who are clear yellow glasses better and supercross which one to you walk. Better clear yellow glasses. I wore oakley so i. if he was wearing oakley's he was probably cool. But i we're oakley so. I think i was probably the coolest start there. We go fair enough. You did bruder skip ever nail a girl at club rubber rubber that in vegas now that was in anaheim. That was a club that used to go to back. Okay well then. I guess it'd be no the craziest requests are right or had of them from k. r. mackin craziest request a rod. So what was the quirkiest thing or anything. You know like you wanna mind. Yeah mcalpine sean. Yeah okay so. He has an idea that he wants to practice before still city i'm flying back home right and then i'm gonna fly back to the race right. And he has this idea that he wants to take his race bike. And i'm like. I don't know how you're going to do it. How you going to do this. You got to rent a car. you know. And he gets it. He gets approved by roger. Next thing i know i'm having to tear this fucking motor race bike apart and shoved in the back of a backup. It's yeah chevrolet car. He's got most of the bike in there. It's hanging out. The trunk isn't even close and he takes off down the road and a pulls a bike out. Apparently i'm not there. I'm back home. i'm like all right. Good fucking luck with this. You know. I can imagine what i have to come back. And he did it. He went right. Yeah he rode sure enough. And then and i came back toward the bike apart and put it back together and we raced still city. I got nothing got justin. Rodbell wants to know skips thoughts on justin rodbell. Keep your elbows up kid. Okay all right jetsons. Yeah we had just as good good kid. I was glad seemed. Get a point. That was awesome He's one of those guys that I just wish. I wish i could get that get over that little bit of a hump that i get over. Its kit. what avila soto six. Three three last question. What race did they face. Their biggest bike problem yet still got the bike back together. Like what was a fire drill that you had and still worked out okay or gnarliest fire driller and there was two of them that stick out of my both mud. Go ahead so hank tom. Hey finally won the lake one. Yeah i mean the solids were going. They would cross down the valley to go up the other side. The are under water and we get back. I get back after practice like. Yeah we're gonna we're gonna race. We're out of water. You know we're done the there's water to wash his bike. Water is gone through every unbelievable to it out and the same thing happened at At millville i mean at the troy the one year and it was going to be a bad thing when you got towed into the pit out brute chair. I lost my line for main event next to i think it was. Tim might have been nick way. And i look down. My seat belt is just spinning off. Just like like superlight client with my handle got it got it got it. Yeah but that was like literally the card was up right. I'm gonna fortunately. I didn't have a lot of fire drills. I helped with quite a few But one time that i that's being a bell is when i work with burner The bike was vibrant. A four-stroke in the crank was going out. You know so. We had a swap motors. That's that's all. I got really pretty much. But you know you're you're you're probably worse. One was changing a chassis in ama standing over me because this was when he first developed this tour. Tally yeah i forgot about that one. But we had a chain of chassis and be ready for For going out because he bent that are broken It was cracked. You start cracking. And the japanese were there and stuff and they're like freaking out and stuff but having a swap whole yeah that took race and then there's all kinds of people wanting to help go. Look you're helping me. You're helping me the rest of you guys stand fucking away because it just. It's too crazy you know but That probably was the worst but fortunately that happened in practice and so we had a little bit of time before the night show we. We are on the line when chads chads bike was sucking air because his the base cylinder base not behind the power valve hype loose on lap. Thing was going. Oh said with rookie. Yeah yeah i remember the rando and So jump in there the pipe off. Take the power out cover off. Tighten the basement hope that the gasket was going to be okay and it was nice. That was on the line right. And ricky's going. It's time time is up. Time is up right. Oh yeah that's right that's right. I mean what those were the days where they would just hold the gate for you forever. She'll who made that call them. yeah. I'm curious maybe rookie. Or was oliver. They're saying ask air or something. Yeah i don't remember. I don't remember. But i was involved with helping out a teammate. Right so now while. You had a guy on the line. While timmy was online. Yeah okay that's it. That's the question i got more. But that's enough for now partout partout. This was part two. We'll do a part three all right. Tony broody skip. Skip norfolk firing race religion. Their own mind. I i have to east coast four-stroke championships and at a national win in the summer win. I mean you've got a few super twins couple couple berlioux you've got a few. You've got a couple of one. Twenty five supercross titles. That's it yeah. so in. His room is just full of greatness. It's really wasn't daytona. that's my other only i. That was fun. That was awesome. What a way to go out and your last year you have a four fifty daytona. We're going up to the mountains hiking fishing when now. Oh i'm done. I don't want to drop the mic. Yeah coke and jacob was asking me about getting back so and a couple of weeks ago. But he's still still going to raise rates another year. So what yeah. Wow he's a good he's a little back. I'm like no i take you. Back is such a good. Yeah he is absolutely so how burry hd you l. Online dot com. So comes. I guess gordon seascape. Get jeremy stories and this was amazing. What was this. That's the super many many the other one was the first one. The basement basement accumulate like the basement. Okay so so are we getting. are we done. we're done. So who's gimme gimme. That's got a couple of minutes. Yeah yeah who stands out in either class for you. Is there a standout any guys that stand out. There's a kid that i've kept an eye on and you know your magazine. Ray directed a you know an interview with them. Or whatever and you you guys both might know him. I don't know. But i do see and know what he's kinda done. And that's that rammie kid that that guy. that's brazilian. yeah yeah. I like. I like him. I think that maybe with a little help. I think he could be good he. He's good. I mean he's been on scene for a couple of years now he's he's always he never gives out. He writes hard man almost full privateer. He's privateer so Yeah the kid. Kids not bad. Yeah yeah. I'm a big cody. Shot van doing really. Your neck of the woods. Delaware had had a chance that i had a chance to to spend some time with them a couple of years ago the fact that he ran second for how long daytona he did see. That's the problem. That's the whole problem. He was on for third. he was forever forever What i not factory guy. Yeah he's in the points and basically every year every races here he's been the first four fifty nine to four fifty clash right now. Yeah it is. It's you know I just think it's i think it's cool to that is. I think it's really cool for a kid like that. That's doing what he's doing. Yeah i mean and the disparity. I shouldn't say the disparity but the perception is that the factory guys have huge advantages over everybody else. No he's been really well. I've been doing well. And he denied never heard of a matt loretta. Lynn's or anything. no. I never heard of them. Really z. seventeen. He's a really smart kid really really nice to talk to really together like a good dude. So yeah seventy sean seventeen. He broke his back at unifil. Okay and he's coming back. He came back from that. And just just you know. And i am a big fan of tony's mechanic to so now dan you work for you. Tony did joe's former okay. Cool but just that everything. They've done this year. They've what what he's been able to do is pretty fricking. Cool is ryan great. He has been really good for sure. Phil nicoletti fell fourteen hours. Pretty garbage wasn't happy.

Listen everybody fly racing racer expert guests. Skip norfolk tony buddy. Thanks for thanks for listening to the fly. Racing steve mathis show. Don't forget to check out some of our past shows including motorcross legends. Such as boy johnson. I looked down on my hand. Was i sitting over to the side. The tendons were jerking and weird places. And i did biggest disappointment danny store because that he never said sorry to danny and i were friends and we've never talked since before the five hundred events. Dave and i fly to germany. Go down the street guard. There's this little shop on the back of the mall. Factory we get their cylinders. Take them back. And you know off we go and you know we in nicosia. Cylinders is a battery park for a handful of years before anybody ever saw in production day told miguel was all you know. He did the big pancake thing. And he's got the thing he's completely laying on the gas tank trying to miss his. I mean he would have gotten even harder. Jumped farther is that she hasn't been you know. Been there cain bob. I love the guy. I don't think he's the greatest competitive sport ever had. Absolutely one hundred percent in my mind. Believe that statement. I said about these modern day guys. In switzerland or polymer belgium. Forty five minutes on the same bike. You crazy is. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better nowadays and they were in the pool so different bikes. Different times. Beasts from east damon bradshaw. It got to the point where. I didn't wanna leave home and once i got to the race. I wasn't into it if i wasn't going to give one hundred percent. I'm not gonna take your money. The working class hero. Henry definitely an emotional moment for me just thinking to myself at that. You know and it's amazing. The stuff that goes through your head in a short amount of time of the things that you know that was gonna miss machine until you really open yours and you wanna listen to what they're saying like being a dead horse and i know from personal experience anybody ever sitting down. Of course everybody did. Go two ways to make the money one is. You can sign for money or two. You can earn the money. I'm a high believer in earning the money. I think they ride better when they earn the money. Seven seven-time jeremy mcgrath bad like so disappointed. So frustrating said i can i left every point count could kick myself to this day for not just riding around and been no problem. I and my ego gotten away. You know show johnny. Stop that you didn't want wanna ride it. He just wanted to look at it all day. I got a chance to test all that. I like that air. I was in. I really do search. Maximum tune store to enjoy these in over eight hundred. Great motorcross podcasts.

Alpine stars a guy that I've known a long time. Go back a ways with him. Don't see him. Nearly as much as I used is to. Except for the random meeting at pro circuit the other day. It's DOC lobs. What's up buddy? How are you? I'm good man. Well first of all your real real name is Rob Robin Mac. Walters just rub in well tourist Mecca. See that literally nobody calls you buy your who calls you by your real name that place. Yeah that's about it. I think. I'm just wobble wop. Yeah wobbles all. You'll call me penguin. The nickname penguin I remember paying. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's the penguin. Batman right and randomly I ran into you at pro circuit the other day. That's hilarious. You come over come over to the US here and there used to come every six months. What business is basically I bought a lot of clarence stock? Vanya mine stuff and are you. She bought a bunch of stuff out of shape but to be honest most of its abort most the good stuff now serve so I think good there for a while because Mitch is a hold on you know that stuff sitting back laughing. The nineties last game I know right right and it it's crazy. How much stuff is growing and getting bigger? And I don't know how much everyone's rated Mitch's thing by now so but let's say so. I guess one of the things more into and we'll get into your career. You work for Renard you work for. A bunch of people superlight technologies your newest thing thing titanium bowl to supply a lot of teams with their bolts on their hardware he worked on the US market. How's that going really good? I started doing it. Basically when the exchange right term Bob for us a couple of years ago and I was coming over here for containers for bikes and it just got to the point where I couldn't couldn't just there's no point in doing it on whenever we're building bunks if you buy the stuff I always look to get made a good friend of mine. Who Does Formula One the fastness. I went to him saw tolkien. UNLV told me Pretty quick and he told me about the grades and the processes awesome materials. Now I started source of suppliers against Megan of samples together. It's work on lots of money. Didn't think I think it would cost this much. It's we're doing really good moment. Yeah cool good to hear Yeah Vo Yamaha just went from being like a privately funded armed Yamaha Saddam to be in the full factory dealer. Now we've been a food as factory supplier. So that's a big thing for US district staff out. Yeah absolutely early nuts get good too good to see. US teams if people are listening or people you can contact wasps on his website. DOC DOT COM. It's good pricing thing to like compared to tie. Because I've been buying tie for some of these finished bikes that I've been building and of course I use it for many years on many teams and your your pricings good good. We're trying to get it down still crazy expensive. My target is under a thousand bucks. But that's true even hard with the more stuff we make. The mobile will the Modern box not just m sect's might bounce anymore most thus shoulder special shea a knows those catch you out 'cause that really expensive to make you order those by the hundred the regular about three thousand. Yeah you know it's funny. You're right WHOA. I got four fifty and you look at the bolts that like apparently back in the day like Yamaha if a bolt doesn't need to be an eight or ten like seatbelt and aside panel bolt and this an exhaust bolt are all different lengths and sizes. And I think years ago they used to be all the same. You know looking at that. You know that used to be just a boat with aluminum machine washer now they will in code. But it's when you actually take a Yamaha for example you know Yemen has got six belts the referendum just so much to do then once you start dealing with the teams. They weren't different stuff which is cold because because you know we do the bolts for the extra months effectively. KTM clump. Yeah so we. We custom build kits for the teams torture I quit wrench in a long time ago. You're still kind of doing it a little bit but you were you. Were you building these vintage bikes for the the. US guys but basically you were a mechanic for a long time and GP's and in America and you've moved on to the next stage in your career as at high. And I always tell people wall because I'm just like I would never go back to full time mechanic. You'd have to like kidnapped my family I guess and then make me do it. I don't know it's so much work back in the day while I think it was on my sound. Some dude telling these kids that. Go to ease the way they just weren't reliable. You know then they take a lot of work eh softball crazy now. Take Stock 456 suspension on a pipe bomb you go. Yeah Yup I was building. You know. Take four hours to build L.. Device Bike Justin stuff and it just seemed to be a lot more work and of course when I was them. You know in the Box van days and you weren't just wrenching engine on stuff. You were building motors. You were driving. The truck could be three or four days. No Grocery shopping. Yeah exactly organizing parts. You know luckily suspension guy wasn't doing that myself but you know I was building Wales and yeah just doing everything. I don't think a lot of these guys do that. Much Chen million. You look back on your career and sometimes thing what was I thinking I wouldn't change. I I know right. I think you're you're a little bit like me. Where like we're foreigners we're in America? This is the big dream and we don't have any family are real friends outside of the people at the racist so why not just work our balls off. That was well. That's that's kind of where the foul guys benefit. Because there's no distractions Fitschen you out because you were up to laval you got nothing better to do the hang out the show. So that's kind of what you do. So farley castle vet. Those nations has been ten years fifteen years ago. And it's about Yeah I've done it ten years. It's it's a looks like a phenomenal event. I gotta get over there at one point and time. Somehow you got suckered I mean you got into into asked into building these bikes for this race. For the American riders come over and everybody from Tedesco to do Bach to Kahlo still a sheen. The Dow you name them they've come into hoop. They've come over they've race. These races fro and you've been the man for the most part to build them. These K X five hundred CR. We are five hundred whatever kind. They want their their contract. Needs or whatever. How'd you get into that first of all I mean obviously you were building bikes for magazines and everything? But how'd you become the point man for team. USA This farley rows of no idea. I'm lucky enough to pain you enough. The nineties as the will dig at the moment of the eighties around Guam priced so kind of know what he's GonNa like and I kinda neither strengths and the weaknesses Gollnisch never easy. I've got mechanics at home. It works for me. They work on four-stroke stuff. And I don't know I could learn but no point down on I don't WanNa to learn you know archetype on behalf too but I'd really prefer not to talk on the four stroke on the to- stroke stuff. You know I was having. It's a lot easier to to work on something more familiar. When you know you know people get carried away with a couple of years ago? They were always everything now. everything the You GotTa do just enough with just what. It's supposed to look like him. It's not hard to find them pitches. It's gotta be. I was kind of watched everything going Tom. Right on the side. One in desperately to be a mechanic and you taking this stuff and I guess Are you running out of K.. Ex parts like are you know stuff's hard to find. Now you know steph starting to be Looking into we've we've got with my Formula One guy he's helping me out with digital printing with rapid prototyping. I'm I'VE GOT MY HANDS ON I. Five hundred esotique piece clutch cover which we've now got a plastic brush bought into a bar to make sure it works and you know trying to develop that I'm getting. I'm trying to get the machine in costs down to get those to be sensible money. Oh okay that'd be pretty cool. Yeah things that you know because it's not you can't get it you gotTa Make It. He's not going away. Luckily I'll I just think it constantly shifts is like the ninth stuff now is getting in. Because the what's what's what's the dump stuff you can't get you buy. Ah a CR two fifty eight nine. You can buy it for nothing. But you want forecasts conqueror of the money you know and you off gone to Ufo to Maitland of looked into it is making plastic mounts expensive unit right and at some point these guys just threw that stuff away or whatever you know just runs out about you know the the promote England they keep for this not ninety nine law Eichel keep talent you should stick to like twenty five years old and it gives people chance to buy a bike from Ebay and device in a couple of years but they keep to say nine thing started offers a also eat former vases but he thinks penguin I never thought of that. So yeah the rules eighty nine. That's right so yeah come on man you guys got got open that up a little bit because there was an eighty nine the longtime ago. Well the thing is I fixed amount to the point where I wasn't GonNa Komo Digest consumer how life and then they let a new class bone soup ebay which is a ninety six opens up a whole new world. Yeah Yeah and and you know this year with Brownie. He was contracted to Yamaha. This ship. Rock the he called me up said Hey do you build me four ninety Komo build you a four month. They don't do anything well and as a business. I have to sell the thing after but I came over to the states in ninety three. The what for new mark and I kind of know how to make one of those things run and luckily I have a pretty good one twenty for a full on Chesterfield. Factory one twenty five with him him office which are the linkage copy and I got the triple clamps remade them you know we can build a box that was going to run good. It was a gamble because he could come back. Got To practice. And just this Powell but what we were talking the other day pro circuit and you told me that Brownie closed one. I could have in nineteen ninety. He was Fadi was going around that how out of the country back in the day just an animal and who's was a guy who's the guy that's come over jumped on five hundred said I don't want anything to do with this guy. Yeah I mean. I've never voted in his life. uh-huh professional good as gold and he was easy to deal with. It was annoying China Backtrack Lewisham but it's so unforgiving any always on track get so rough and these guys. Don't see the track until Friday morning. They don't get to practice five laps. Which of which three are timed? They don't get any time to get beat a pad where the you know. It's not really fair. It's outside of outside of Brownie as an American guy that surprised you on a five hundred. Who could who was like Whoa? This guy's pretty good. I mean bail was awesome. You know but that's John Michell bio for you. Yeah he wrote his Old Honda Right. It was his old homicide now. The only thing that was only on building for him and I eighty nine five hundred. Okay I want to mention to get the police said and you know we went upstairs. I isn't He's sticking through boxes and he found the senator for the for money road and the last time you race which was ninety two miracles donations in Australia and he said Hey. Have that drama shelves. That's major the giants said. Hey this is the first time I've gained twenty two years when I got the same so he was great. He was awesome awesome. He was awesome he shot and he was pulling away. But you know it doesn't right now and like I was telling Ryan said these kids. Is this the big deal. They look forward to this year. You know you're going to go over that number right around. WanNa drink beer but these kids. Don't mess about people you are going to be with you. Never ahead of Edwin Edwin guy or whatever like I mean. I've heard of him. He just names just like we know him but these guys estimate practicing. Oh wait they take okay seriously. Yeah yeah absolutely right. So you've been suckered into this thing every year you you're the one having excuse me summit for the rice in September the the the kids are on vacation from school. I can't go away because it's just old going on. I think I will do it earlier. Took earlier. But there's always GonNa be somebody on let you down. The Guy who made the discs for us was on Wednesday vice told him so he shows up the Wednesday night before the disks. Yeah but you managed to sell these things for the most part they said of the track. Yeah I've got clients the customers who basically want to tell them what I'm building. They'll say. Yeah I've got shot up to finally who I've sold six bucks. It was never meant to do to introduce himself phony. Wow cool just ready. Hey so you've got your hands and you're you're a great follower instagram. Everybody follow doc law or what. What is your instagram handle? Well I'm not sure. ooh Yeah. It's a great great follow. You've got a lot of works parts a lot of special bikes things that you can't get any more that you somehow rob get your hands ends on one of the coolest things I saw you do and you still owe me a story for this is not going to happen. I don't think but you. So you rebuilt Dave Thorp's what year a six six works by some somebody calls you up and said Hey I got a shell of one and handbook basically thought originally may trying to sell China may help him sell sweet box because when the back in the day you WanNa World Championship Party contract is you got the thought given to you. Honda was so weird about anybody else as they they used to build them with no internals in the suspension no interns the engine kicks out around. There's no there's a gearbox shaft in but nothing else no clutch no crank piston. The ENQUIRER'S IRIS TURNS OUT COLLECT THE GUY walked out with a few occasions. Bought the eighty six and he he called me up you can build it runs again really It might be so you know all that stuff within Europe somewhere else or not digging around and we managed to get the thing done in over the years. The the box been on loan so many times there was no detainee in boats less than it so we have to make a bunch of those. It was a lot of work but it was pretty cool to see that you know and eh and it's not a matter what production stuff would fit anything. Nothing went pretty much crazy. The insane and there was no work sparks in America in eighty six. Either this was. This was one of four insanely trip yet. Insane killed him. Good thing is whenever you through these bonds people always going to be. Somebody says that's not the way bang you'll find. You got these guys that look at photographs than this. I in all he when this or even a mechanic unit boxx not the same weekend we certainly not signed by the end of the season where starting out no different based on the design graphics on the different based altogether when you can always tell some of these collective they start throwing out that much engine frame numbers straightaway. Yeah yeah whatever engine. That thing is is whatever cases told from the stores on Tuesday morning. Yeah Yeah exactly right. How'd you get electrons for was all right that was that was hard yet to rewire the thing and he was touching a said? This thing's built. There's no spark we can't get it to spark walk the guy who works for makeup and he persevered impersonated infanticide. We spoke fired up so yeah. I'm not sure if that was luck over. That was just a bloody mindedness to get the thing started. And we put a little video on facebook and I think Scotland half a million visa. Something realistic I ride in Farley or so now the guy's collective and he we were GONNA do a test. That's why I was waiting. I've got all the photographs of it in bits I can. I can ride up the story but we will wait in on the guy to get out and test it with open. That's just never happened so maybe I can make some colts range attest with the same guy with the the poor Malin. Sr Five. I'm GONNA just bill. Yeah Yeah you show me some photos of that at at pro circuit so this is a perimeter frame kegs. Five hundred mail-in and Dan Thorp wrote them Berry one or two years. That's about it and nineteen ninety-one. They made them yawn. Thought not one decided to go to the steel frame. The regular Friday night eighty lakh the exile. He wrote it and then after he was finished with the box went to the got recycled basically went to Belgium. Algebra eighty dollars writes the following year. Oh really okay. So I'll still God. You got some connections wobbles. Is it a lot some of this stuff a little black market right so it's a little bit. Like Hey I got this thing. I can't tell you where I got it from but I got a crank frank I got wheels or whatever. Yeah I'm hoping the factors united the end of the day the guys who are in control stuff along guardrail you know nobody. Nobody really cares of its heritage. Really if anything at least the factor is getting some love. You'd think you know out be happy if I was a manufacturer Chrissy in the outbox coming out again. I agree I agree. There's a lot of degroot stuff floating around to. I've seen different forms. There is a lot of the gross stuff but the problem with the factory bought collectors With it because the slot you said we got white by knows who. And the some of these guys they come out the woodwork. And there's all these experts who you never saw you sound mean but just like there's a lot of these experts out there. Let's say you Komo in the trenches with us. Now you ask the question of you know and if it's like Lee mccullum or somebody always been there and done that you know he's an opinion. He's got a valid you know. But when this guy's you've never heard of just come out the woodwork. Stop telling you what's right and wrong short. Believe you you ah anything ever to do with a wise. Em five hundred and you know a nipple or you did people on the guy messed me around mess me around around. It was a little bit on the cheap side and they will say if it's too good to be true it usually is. Yeah good point good point them when I did see the ball game was when asked to somebody else bought it some other guy tight five times more than I wanted to. Voice bought apple about arrangements. That Nice Nice. Yeah there's like six of them I I think left in the world. Somebody told me Yeah just bit says. That's the trouble a lot. These factory party led the pilots which have been used. They've gone past that US support our even Yup. Well they just didn't work. You know this stuff get got didn't work. Then he puts on one side now. The people building box with it and they didn't look the now. Yeah yeah funny. How much of your business is the titanium? How much of Your Business is restoring and building bikes people and doing that kind of selling? Yeah I mean a friend of mine told me you need different income streams strange joy up and nothing. That's true in this spot basically an Ebay. Pots stole basically got ten thousand. Listens and You know we import plastics infographics import. A bunch of stuff. We manufacture a bunch of bits. So that them guys are busy during that. We've got side of the business which sows modern bikes undoing. About three hundred and fifty bucks a year. they then just normal law is on the five and four fifties and stuff and then we got tiny inside and we've got the best direction relation side so we're spent pretty thin but there's always who is busy doing something. Yeah seems like I saw you put a bunch of good bores factory. Honda stuff for sale guy. I'm looking at him like that would be so cool to have and then I'm like what do I do with it. What do I do the front fender braids? They you know what I find is is like I can offer this stuff because people now combine it. You know I bought a bunch of that stuff from a guy and I'm just trying to get my money back and then whatever's left over okay AH MFN devices we copy them. We just in case you know you get one in a batch of stuff and you send it off and Mike Golic troy files it and you can get it made. Yeah exactly I know it's funny. Fly racing racer x podcast by Max and stars with doc wobbles on the phone own here. Hey so I guess. I think you probably grew up a lot like me where you're from Canada. You're from England or you're going the Canadian you're going the the GPS in England and the local GP nationals ongoing the Canadian stuff and grew up dreaming of being a racer. And when that didn't work the next pressing was a mechanic Yeah exactly I didn't have to seventeen. Madonna was interrupting. Never bought me a couple. which isn't a bad thing? I think that's a coal. I don't I wanted to so bottle vice myself a little bit of talent and then Become a mechanic when I started hanging out with Andrews he's Michael to me Hung out with them at Max's father Eighty six and at the time that was positions available because they used to be thankful French internationals but basically that have a weird look Tuesday race in the middle of a failed in France that pay. These guys is a bunch of money to show up advice and be thousands of people that cost based mechanics. Busy failed in the box and they need somebody to go with him to gun vice. This right okay. So you're doing these different guys. Yeah exactly but you know you always look into the states because they had the big names and I think now with the Internet and smaller place ace and you know when I was a kid. These these guys are God's amongst when I when I was working for banks Honda and they put us in the hunter Pitts in across crossed the barrier was not object. He's just like I remember walking around the stadium In diamond warden. Just what the shame. These gods amongst that'd be blown away but now another more and I think you know these guys looking so the guys nowadays Even with McGrath anemic. You know I think they were superstars. Randy yeah yeah thanks change a little bit for sure Saito mackinac up in the same. You're convinced Mohan pull guys the I don't know I think I often think about that.

Even been don't council would have been tough you couldn't see anything and the trump was awful. It was a long day but the day was still an event and it had that been the grass circuit. You wouldn't have got out. It'd been isn't that never would have been Fox hills on ninety eight right. Oh my God. Yeah so you're generally speaking. You're you're okay with everything the way things are going doesn't bother me out of it to be on the teams right right there with the wheelbarrows and commands stunning construct. Some of these guys. That will happy enough to do it. So the site is not what you know on these guys who about wellness teams. Some wealthy suits you know they. They'd Clovis unite does what he wants. These guys didn't want it. They're doing they want money. They're not doing it for anything. They don't extend if if the frustrations and the the expenses got too high. They can walk away and they don't they auto and all the people complaining all the Keyboard Warriors. Maybe weren't there. I think we're given these people. Maybe maybe we listened to much.

Yeah you've stolen four counts of bear because you were racing against dumbed down. Oh Yeah I remember I read Dogwood. Red Dogwood would Not Get he gets buried. They liked him he was sort of east coast. You know so like many California guy. Oh God it was on if you're from California and you could challenge Doubter Henry Book so who was. Who's the best guy you worked for all around? Jesus put me on the spot. Betty Lousy enjoyed working the Pele. Paul was Buddy Robbie he was cool. Shit really 'cause he was doing good you know he was easy to be around. He was fun. I mean as big age got their Andrews all except those guys so much when I started out you know so I was kind of in all the you know like I enjoy working with Mike von. Whenever I get child's I like him? He's down to Earth but these coats you can't put your finger on one guy that think. I mean obviously with the Timmy. But for me they will different. You know lyles was cool. You know and that it was good that year. I don't remember not particularly we. WE WE WANNA rice and you know we were in podiums. Most weekends top volleys reading. It was good but not what he was. Used to You know he was coming back from podium in most weekends but he was he was fun to hang out with you. I'm with you guys. Were just having a ball. Just two buddies. Yeah we were just under we will just winging it really it. Who's the best guy you who's the best guy that you've been around as a either on your team or or you know you've sponsored Smith or whatever else that maybe doesn't get enough press or doesn't get talked about as much memorial memorial didn't make you Donna? Brian Kepa talented. You know he was you know. How did Brian come out with what he did? and Lemoyne came out with more eight. It just doesn't make any sense ready because I'll skill. That wasn't much between no no. Yeah you're absolutely right. There's not many people who would have picked Dungy Villa Polaroid to have the success. They did back in the the next not having. Not when you're trying to pick on these kids to to try and pick like why I wouldn't thought Ghana's Pasi run but he hockey YEP super. Nice Kid Not Team Wilson. You wouldn't think he's got he's GonNa get from his results reading but Danes so-called be around in so so good at the PR stuff social media stuff which is so important nowadays. Most the best bike you've worked on a rain on one twenty. Five's my favorite the the big bar. Now the four that was because we were beaten the big dogs would be you know it was a factory Lewke gotten along but the thing was special. I think that year the same year that Mike Craig for sure I had a big bore. And we're only race motor lawn. You've never as Motoo diddy. Yeah there was like top five or top eight in motor one. Never show for Moto two. And you're like why is that and then I found out. Yeah it was a big. Yeah we we had a problem at high point. Buck stopped him. This is my first experience of working with the factory team. They wouldn't let me go and get at the back they send somebody else again. Get it back and I take it upon the cylinder of the engine Without even saying it knew what gone wrong. I didn't know you and the little pen start living from turning around and come out. Oh yeah and from then on. They said New Piston. Every race has sat on the bike. That new new piston new radio new clutch. I'll I think I remember a few times between Moto seeing your top end off and what what's what's going on every time you've read the book. Yeah and also then he got to the point where he only one shock your A. We had tons of shocks but Ian not one of them so we take the shock. Aw and Scotland Service in the back of the truck in the suit up on while I was doing the top end so he could have that same shock again Larry Award Moat Movement. I think so. Yeah I mean these guys they get happy with stuff and you got to do what you can. But you know when you're changing AIDS and clutches and top hand and funding away away. Oh was I had a SP- asset graphics. They were ripped up every time he wrote him But brake pads on municipal full revolt. And you've got an hour and ten it it's Thorpe the greatest. UK rider ever. Yeah noise like this this gentleman I did with him now and he is super cool super polite super humble just I never I I did. A podcast is with them a long time ago. I just rang up out of the blue. He was watching soccer or football and and he talked for a long time. I never liked the fact. He in eighty five he beats. Bailey editors nations Germany and in eighty six. Of course o'mara beats them Majoria an MSA. The break I get that similar tried another five hundred on that thing rewrite and we'll take anybody from Johnny Johnny. Of course. Yeah No of course and I never felt like Thorpe. Four status never got to be as high ever again because of her world's fastest amateur. Yeah Yeah I do too few in England England and you grew up. I mean it's really him and his father while I got into it because I was a folly castle. WanNa say eighty five when he came from last to first I and it's like you never been the place you couldn't move tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of people that and he's just to watch this guy all I come from last to first and just watch the crowd like a wave around the track where every us and you know we all stood at the back of the truck trying to get glimpses with the white gloves armed and behind him with a pit bull is that moment. I'm not that's all I wanna do and I was done. It's arrived at that point. I wanted to be a mechanic and and so I've got up most spectrum. There's only so people make me nervous when their name shows up on my phone is Dave Stop. Mitch paint those two I. They won't know Peyton Calls Me Long. Boy I don't know this can usually though it's he something happens on the show. That makes him laughing. He has to call me to discuss it. So that taught me and pitch me out to be on this. I'm doing okay. He told me he called me with it. Finally when he called me justice I in the box good which is not yeah. That's not too bad as a business. L. Look Up to Mitch. I'll I'll try to emulate what he does like one percent of what he does not be happy. Musk appoint yeah absolutely right. And we were just that pro circuit the other day and I clean. The shop is part of this bat and he he he jumped in and played along. And I'm just like skype so busy right now. He's got everybody calling him and he's doing this stupid skit with us the coca I mean yes it. Is You know. He's along the shoulders. Of course he's not him off. Five image paint story were in Minneapolis. supers and we were drinking in the hotel after 'cause all the balls closed and this was when rj was looking after tour. Tally remember I got Colour for the Coronas. That's been on all day and that I got this like this scratchy plastic lemon lime thing somehow. RJ decided. If I was to snort a puddle of this loungers Mitch would split skirts so ice melted all today. And it's the most painful thing I've ever done and Mitch infanticide tilted. His head back opened his score in that thing Talking with it really. It's caught by them times. You know you can't be as crazy. Yeah I can believe it. Yeah some of the stuff some of the stories you hear over the years right. Yeah Yeah I awesome anything else wobbles news anything. I think we'll good. It's just trying to get the sleep thing walk enrolling in the sites now we've Quite a bit of the Amazon nationals. But I want to get into the proteins a bit more. We've had used it before. Michael Vince is talking about one of the stuff. And now you know all these stones Alps guys out with it and we're just GONNA. It's not an easy market to break the American market. You know it's the strange thing. If if if people contact you on your website for some superlight tie and you mentioned pulp Amax rob will give you a deal. I'll give you need to get some on your. CFO Four fifty. But there's no point in sending new stuff until we can back it up with stuff but at the moment we can drop ship from the UK flock shortly buck. Yes no a big deal. She's that's not too bad at all. No it's forty seven but looking back you happy with everything you happy with. What you did is a mechanic what you accomplished i? I always loved to have done more amion as a few things which you know I was supposed to work for China in like two thousand two is the that he got busted EPA the steel city on that four fifty hundred I was supposed to fly to California to songs for Chaperone is GonNa look after Warren in supercross and then I was going to help with Jeremy otherwise out I was going to help a gentleman sweep across and also a workout run for the outdoors. That would have been a cold job but that didn't work out. And then you know this is saying where I should have stayed but I got wrapped up in the hell out of legal stuff with somebody else's problem. Yeah I got kind of shafted on that. I think did a good job in a a couple of times I just go For Robbie and ninety nine aged you calm salt Killer job you know one of the best ever turning conventions you and I ought to go any better out of him than anybody else but the only thing Oil was instilled in it was it was made in versus the world. You know yeah and then you see some other guys. Working on bikes are not much any names. But he's just think up so much better than jobs. You know you. aww Fuck. There's a few guys that stepped into jobs with factory guys that you're just like wow. They just hung out with them when they were a kid or whatever and then they we had this enormous success. And you're like good for you dammit. I know I'm working. I'm working so hard trying to get in there. And as he goes just let the KOGO. Oh God gets the job you know what happens man for sure no absolutely and I think now these kids coming up to seventy marcus. Don't you think he goes to star employees because circuit. There's so many jobs when I was trying to bust into it. There was four factory jobs. Yeah there's nobody was getting in there just not you northey openings out is I see so many suspension guys because like there used to be well used to be no suspension guys at the track. A maybe a maybe a show agai maybe a Kyi but now like Ky.. Has a Cowie guy has a Honda Guy. Show has their own guys dedicated to the teams and I just you see Showa K Y B and w people everywhere now. Yeah what about what about these practices mechanics killer. No no I disagree the track they gotTa groom the track they got to do the practice bike. Work they gotta fix the. They're not that way they show up to attract with the kid goes in a while the easiest thing in the world. Now these guys were these facilities like hey go change the water pump on the on the on the water truck truck you know go choose a fuel pump or whatever. It's just they really don't have a great. In my opinion they gotta do different in Europe in Europe. Like I say when Jamie was world champion and it if there's any basically on time to test the ball he was still testing the bought Wrightson so critical contact in May and basically. That's San Jaime home with part so I'd go around try and with him in the wake but twice. Tommy weren't washing because didn't need it and it was just like it was easy and you see these kids. And that's how they learned in the trade and respect that way and it's a good way with no pressure because the pressure that's hard. What's The sketchiest travel store? You have over in Europe take what's been lyles the one time and This into eastern Europe and talk slow border crossings and visas and this and that we went through the boat across it into East Germany.

Links we'll talk about that more later on x. maps and armagh all on board as well for this podcast so let's dive into first up from fly racing and and also you've seen him do the msmx gp's you've seen him much supercross. Couple times german supercross champion and privateer hero for many years. It's jason thomas what's up. Jt it's over over. it is and yeah it's It's been a long year and we you know we had more breaks than usual. And i think maybe that contributed to it but felt like a long year. It did feel like a long year. You do do you think it was just because last year so weird and we haven't breaks and condense season and all. I just felt like a lot of travel auto racing the really long time span. I guess we're into into september which may be as the difference over the twelfth. But yeah i i was talking to burner and he thought it was a long year and then i was talking to. I think bogle. Or maybe we'll haunt and one of them was like yeah dude. It does feel long so like it wasn't just me or you like it did seem like a long year for a couple of people in the pits to so do you think that like all these You know because like you for people that travel as much as we do i. It's it's not as easy to be like the masks. Wear on me. Why i i just flew home from florida today and i had a mask on for ten hours straight and i mean i have a headache and i understand. That's the world we live now but still it's harder. I guess it is more taxing than it used to be and to fly around and again. Don't you feel like the airports are pretty much back to max capacity. Oh yeah right. It was as busy as you can. So you get the busy airlines. You get the mask at the different procedures. Yeah yeah all of that stuff. Maybe i dunno also on the line Not the voice of the motocross series. Not the voice of flat track but he is the pit reporter for the nbc. Sports supercross show. And he's got his own jenky. Podcast daniel blair. What's up no. What do you mean no no. Oh it's like the opposite of wage. Oh yeah no because you called me and maybe do the show and ruin my favorite shows again. Why is on a. He's heading to europe. There's an announcement coming for the ktm team over there. The two two is hanging it up and so we got invited to go and shocker of all shocking things. We bought a ticket for his wife to go. Yeah it is incredible. Jt well he used miles. So let's be careful with how we say purchased. Well yes but even the use the miles. I feel for him to swipe that credit card would have been a very emotional experience for him. I believe now we still we just started. He's finally stop talking about australia trip. Maybe like only six eight months ago and how much you spend on that and everything else. This will probably last another six months. Because you know you got to spend money to go to the tourist sites. You have to eat all of this. Jt is going to be. I think he's getting. I think he's getting paid for so he's gonna get a lot of a lot of free stuff which is his favorite but yeah going if they go to the vatican or anything like that yes. They will be spending money so but i mean for him. This is the perfect scenario. Free trip gets to take the wife so he doesn't get trouble This this is and it's short so that the amount of money spent won't be a lot we might only hear about this for six months. It might not be as good as this is for him. In many ways. What are the odds that he still has a note pad at a pant and tracking every dollar spent along the way complete management of this entire trip even with the freebies. What are the odds. Yeah hi. I sit on a group text this morning. It's an odd way to get out of this timing fiasco to flee the country some sort of drug runner. He's just getting out of here. I i. he's on it right because normally we like to hammer him on this show about these things but yeah can we still can't yeah absolutely but yeah. Jt it seems like the antonio karoly is going to hang it up nine time. Amex camp next champion. I believe nine nine seven nine. He's in trying to tie Seven ever for of what a career. What a guy really cool. Yeah it's rare you know there. There are many people you can say. They're they are as good as a person as a research. Andrew short is in that category rbis in that category very. Yeah sure and i think tony carol-lee fits that bill. His i think the most impressive part of that is raising. Accolades are so much. But he's also such great verse. Yep yep i agree daniel. We got some background noise. Are you listening to some sort of talk forty channel. Yeah my kid sinks can turn the volume up on his phone right next to me piece five piece by piece down. Beat it kid daniel. We're good we're good now. If it happens again you'll hear you'll hear crying. I think go on them. Put it it put. Put put an eagle onto them. I will i will. Yeah so yeah corolla great career and fantastic dude and deserves all accolades for sure daniel. I was. I thought you were gonna wanna hang down. I don't know when the last international was we. We always joke about it here on the show. Come in and i thought this was going to break the streak. It was supposed to and then i just felt like i had such a good thing going. I didn't wanna it Bondo even hit me up was like dude. Are you coming. I wanna i wanna see you and i'm just like now man. I'm forty five minutes away air conditioning. I i wanna watch good show on television and overall it was good. I didn't know who was in place the entire day but other than that just i. It was hot. And i just didn't i mean i hate to say it. I just didn't want to go. That was on a. I figured you'd have something other than i just didn't want to go but okay all right i mean i could make something up if you want but if you want just straight honesty i woke up and decided no that fair enough fair enough. Jt the floor is yours. For as far as the broadcast is concerned. You know what it wasn't as bad as the week before as an overall broadcast and just the shenanigans. That went on a gate malfunction. It was just a really tough weekend. The all of the drone was better to it. Looked better but it's a little bit. I could've a group of people walk. Okay the comments about this drone were horrific. I mean just they were just berating everything drone to me. It's like the broadcast okay. So it's like the husband who was alcoholic and his wife and stuff and went to rehab and got better and then buys his wife a gift like every single day. And it's a completely changed ma'am. They got this drone and it's like it's the greatest thing in the world. They just they really love this drone allah well. It seems like what we were saying about did not have enough cameras. It solve some of those issues too. They're just running with. They are absolutely embracing this thing in. I don't know it's as well received as they're hoping it is publicly. I think i can tell a honda from kelley now though i felt like that was better or away. It's still really far away at times. Yeah yeah i to daniel. I think the drone less is more for the drone one hundred percent. So what. I what i like about. It is going to in from commercial break and kind of get not big landscape. Look and kind of you know while we up fading out into commercial love that shot because it gives you a big picture. Feel but i. I just like seeing him race from the regular camera shots. Because i don't know. I don't like watching the from the drone but i get it like coming out of commercial. Hey we're back at hang town. I love those shots. I think they look good. I just don't like him during the race as much. And i think the the goal is to have the same bill as you know the the skycam. What do they call zip-line. They haven't supercross spidercam. Spidercam it doesn't. It doesn't do the same thing. I actually felt nauseous a couple of times. That's what i was getting to. I wasn't feeling nauseous. But a lot of people house with work. Yeah and again. It's a cool shot coming in and out for the you know for the landscape but as far as racing goes i'm i i just i'm not into it straight up the timing the timing and scoring again to me it was just they just gave up. Yes you know. We can't do this. We have finally understood that. This is on an unwinnable situation. We'll just never get it so we're just going to quietly. Bow halfway through modal one. They're like what are we going to do to fix it. You know what the last round. Just just just go with it the problem. What's the issue here. I don't understand you're you're you're taking the timing from the ama and you're importing into a program and that program just grabs the timing off the ama right like i don't get it at one point day. Tried to do a live points update for the day and this was in the first moto. J. hamshahri was winning the day with forty two points in the first motive was not winning the moto. You can only get twenty five points in a modo. So i have no idea what the hell they're that's right. I forgot it was. It was a prediction. Prediction is what's going to happen. Guys i saw was up for like seven seconds. Then you can you just imagine someone screaming at the camera into a microphone about this graphic and immediately yanked that's right. I gotta the broadcast announcers tower. But outside the live timing. I have this track in front of me. So i didn't see that. But i got some tweets. Hampshire is winning the overall man. I moto. I'm like what at this point like. Almost anything can happen. And we'd all be like yeah. Okay like a child has wandered into just hitting buttons poor which on a flight to rome not even carrying right now no care no care so all right. Let's let's get into this a little bit. Let's talk fifties right look. I we thought jet would would win this round the way he's been writing and everything else the way it's been working. He obviously crashed twice in that. First moto fought pretty hard to get back up into the mix and then the second motor. I'm okay bad moto. He got that out of the way daniel and then he'll he needs a seventh or better in this next moto. He's got this too. It's not a problem but daniel early on. I'm like wait. Are we seeing a meltdown here. Like are we seeing. I had some reservations early in the moto like this kid might just throw this away. Thankfully he didn't he really regrouped road well from halfway on but early on down you know. I was not sure that this was going to happen. Motta one in the first two laps of moto two was a generational shift. Put it that way. It was horrible. And i'm thinking to myself is this for real. This kid gonna just be pretty pretty mature all the way through this thing and then just collapsed the entire thing and he did get it together in moto two and did what he had to do. I mean he he got it together. But god do with everyone's emotions man like come on buddy and jt. It wasn't an easy track is for like it didn't look like a lot of fun. It was harder pack than usual. And there's a rider. Jt that we talked to quite a bit. He's a four fifty motocross champion and really good guy and he loves hang down and we all tried to talk him out of that and then even he on a group text said that his name may or may not much match marshburn. He admitted that this town was not to hang down that he remembered so i think. Jt that had something to do with jets uncomfortableness out there. It was it was really weird. They you know it's to be expected that there's going to be harder right because just gone through a brutal summer of ninety plus temperature days for months on months. That's normal that there's it's gonna be harder. We also know that. There is a severe water shortage and northern california. And they're fighting fires all over the place which probably makes things harder so for them to get a awa- water into the track before is going to be more difficult like those are just normal things that we should have expected going in but i was surprised that they didn't add any thing to the dirt. Because that's really what they've you know how they thought that in the last few years is whether it's an a they call rice holes. I don't really know that means. But whether it's out of the sand or whatever they have done a great job of softening dirt by adding outsider in you know ripping it up and mixing the dirt together adding traction and sauce nest to durban. They didn't do. They didn't seem like that at all this year. Maybe i'm wrong did but it didn't look like i don't think so either. I think i think with everything all the conditions going on and everything else. It was probably like all we can do the national off you know. I don't know maybe maybe not daniel. Do you have any inside scoop on that. Because you're up there well. Jt's dead on about what we're going through at norcal right now with the fires and the drought and everything. So i don't know if that was the contributing factor but it does make sense. Because i was out there thursday for amateur day and it was the same thing it was. They didn't dig it very deep. They were applying water. Just almost just to keep the dust down but never really got into the track. And i'm wondering i'm like. Is this just an amateur day thing or is this the plan for this year and then sure enough in practice. I'm looking at the going. Wow they they did not get into the soil really at all so i don't know if it was preserving or what the method was. I mean we've talked this year about how they've been trying to well. Not trying but strategically may be trying to keep the tracks less deep and this didn't work here like this place need. You need to get underneath and really have moisture. That can hold the whole day and to me. It just seemed like they were just putting enough on top to keep the dust down but never got deep and it. It was choppy. It reminded me of old school. Hang town it. Really like just potholes and g outs and dust. And it hasn't looked in a long time. So i don't know the exact reason. Jt's jt's dot makes sense to me. I think it was more of a preservation maybe because it it was not in the soil. It was just sitting on top all day. Yeah yeah it was a tough tracks. Ojt think that had something to do with jett being a little sketchy and then of course being eighteen and having a million dollars in the line i think he was so nervous and i was really unsure i kinda thought he was going to be super loose and just ride like a like he always does like no pressure. No really no real thought But i was more curious to see how that win and clearly i was wrong because he looked like nervous wreck out there. Yeah pulled the through. Though with some held it from the sky. The mistakes never makes mistakes. He was just like he had forgotten how to ride several times. But second moto halfway on. I mean some of those guys looked like they wanted nothing to do with battling him by the way schwartz. Max boland i don't want i don't wanna even race you kid so got a few gift passes but also caught up to third in the second moto so sort of great. Yeah those really uncharacteristic mistakes that kinda told the story of maybe nervous. Yeah yeah yeah but daniel bear your guy got them my guy. He did get it done. It was scary. I actually went to is championship. Party last night And hung out with the honda. Guys kinda got some insight so the for the kid who really. Nothing gets to him it it got to him. I guess he was shaky all day after. I mean you've got to imagine right like he comes across very mature and he he. He looks like he's got it all together like he's been here done this but i think this was the first time he's ever felt real real pressure. And you have to imagine that you know someone that's in that position for the first time is not gonna handle it. Great so i i give him credit for pulling it off and getting it together and doing what was needed. But you could. Totally tell from even qualify. He just seemed in his own head for the time ever and it's a good learning lesson. Lucky for him he was able to learn on the fly. Get together because that could have been catastrophic for him in honda and it's been what they say. Eleven years since ard woman it could have been a big big letdown so props for getting it together man but at the same time you have to imagine his first championship. I i expected a little bit of this but it it was definitely scary in the first moto. I think the track obviously lent to that it was slick and he was goofy so good job. Get it together but man i. I'm thinking halfway through that. I like the championship. T-shirts shirts are gonna get burned in a garbage can. After the second moto but lucky for him he did get it together and he did have help. don't act like a moseman schwartz. didn't help them motor. One nurse bike went out yet again moto too. I don't feel like those guys fought him that hard so a little bit of help. I think made it less interesting late in the second moto because it could have been worse for him. Yeah i didn't think you'd have much problem getting seventh or better in a second moto. And he didn't but early on your like still not being the the way he can you know so but talk about the gate pick. Are we gonna talk about apec. Yes second moto. Justin cooper wins first motto. Second moto so he gets the first pick and he picks and jet goes on the outside of him for the second moto and nothing happened. It was all kind of normal but yeah daniel. That's odd pick. That's an odd choice for sure. I asked him last night. That's the first thing i asked him. I said bro good job. Hey i need to know. I need to know. Why did you start next to justin cooper. And he looked at me with a blank. Stare was like what do you mean. And what do you mean. What do i mean like what. The guy is the one guy who can affect your championship and needs to. Why would you start right next to him. And he literally had no explanation at all he was like i don't know he's a good starter. Mike exactly why would he literally had no clue why i was questioning him. Starting in guber. It's moments like that where you realize. How young he is Ignorance is bliss sometimes man. Because it was i i would have never gone within five bikes of that guy out of the gate anytime let alone. The moto were the guy and i'm surprised. Justin cooper didn't do something and honestly and it was levi kitchen kitchen on the other side. Exactly like i own and hunter went on the other side of that was a whole thing but the kitchen beat him the first moto right. So did he deliberately go in between them right. That's yeah i i would. Ricki ricki always talks about condition over position in this situation. It's stay the hell away from justin cooper. Yeah if you're if you're ki-ho you're throwing yourself in front of the jets bike syria running down there. Like no go that he did it and then sure enough. I'm watching out of the gate. Bad jump gets just shut off. And i'm thinking dude. What was that decision inlet again. Luckily it worked out for. But man i would say in the future. Maybe think those through a little bit more could have been bad. Brock lover was losing it in the tower also over that he can't believe i can't believe you would never. I'm like i don't know man. That's super weird for sure. But i was really surprised at the lack of sight by jareth ryan the first moto slap. Yeah i i was surprised. They let him ride. Who's out of there. I would've guessed that team is losing their mind in the mechanics area pit board as jaguars is catching right. And yeah just didn't seem like there was a whole lot of fight their seal it or right. Yeah he congrat- yet and team. Eighteen years old was the best guy in this series. They might He had he had a midseason slump. I truly believe that where he wasn't riding very well but over the course of that. I mean he. He deserves to win. Yeah yeah. I think i think. I don't think you can argue that he He had eight moto wins. One more than cooper four overall wins to two for cooper right justin cooper at eleven whole shots. Jed only hold shot once that kind of stuff. I'm not a writers that jeff has had to be like ten to one justin cooper. Yeah so cooper did what he had to do his his first one and yeah fifty points. Good job for justin cooper road really. Well got it done. Did everything he could do. I guess and then we find out. Jt that he did hurt them. Which we. I was been saying for a while. He told them. It's i mean. I know you rail on this just d- lack of transparency on anything. Andrew related is pretty wild in the sports. yeah he was sick. He got here to while shoe didn't ride road once on that break and everything kind of unraveled for them from there. He was really. He was really sick. around buds creep time. And you can speculate as to what that cygnus was you. Can he not. I'll have proofs in speculate but you can. If you'd like no. I i heard from somebody would know. He tested negative for covert. And i would have heard this so i i'm not. I'm not saying that's the truth. I'm just telling you what i've heard. That's all Yeah maybe it wasn't bike. Set-up jt second unit dealers. maybe it wasn't set up. Maybe the paint shot were off and he couldn't hang on. But why would you just get another one like. why don't you just get. I think you can only get one right in the middle of the day. i mean it's dosage. Yeah yeah but but if you're if you use the dose that's it used the dose right so I don't know i care for me. I've done it. I'm just going for personal grants. It's about a three hour window you have so. I would think that they would be able to time that right. You know maybe not. I don't know so bike set-up. No i definitely think it was set up. Yeah he while whether it was covered or not. He got sick and his thumb hurt and daniel. His thing is season went south from there. Yeah it's a two things with cooper number one. He's he's got the dungy consistency thing figured out. He's always up there he kinda doesn't throw them away but he's gonna have to learn to win more and that's the key like dungy. He was always good for enough. Wins to get those points needed. The consistency could carry the season but the wind would push him over the top in his title. Runs for justin cooper. You got the consistency. You got the speed the stars but he's gotta learn to close and if he closes one or two more at at the difference in this championship so that's one thing and the second thing is i. Guess if you're in a duel with a writer that you're close with because it's fair to say right. Jt him a jet. Were very close in this thing. You've got to capitalize. When the other guy has his bad ones you got really stick it to him and when jet had his slump. Cooper didn't really take advantage of it. And then. When cooper had his issues jet went one one one one. So it's a timing game i think when you're in this one on one duel with somebody when they falter. You've gotta get the winds those days to get those extra points. And that's the difference in jet took advantage adjusted slump. Justin didn't take advantage of jets. And i think for cooper moving forward if you want to win this thing next year or backup title you gotta stick some more number ones on the board. Everything else has figured out. You've got to close the deals a couple more. And you're probably safe in these titles. But i i to me. That was the difference. Just not capitalizing when it was your turn to take a shot and jet did cooper didn't but don't do you think i'll start with you danielle. Don't you think that like going into next. If everything's fine and supercross whatever happens in soupy happens and soupy like to me. They're they're one a and one b for next year outdoor title hundred percent. You take away the thumb and many sick getting sick happens but to me he was jet was the best writer but cooper right there to me. Yes yeah. I don't see. I don't see cooper going backwards in any way i. I don't know if his ceiling highs jets but i still think he can do everything good enough to make a run next year but he will probably be dealing with a better jet. Just gonna know the tracks little better. He's going to be. You know a little older more mature so for just to make a run at it next year. He's going to have to be better like this won't work next year. You got to be better. You gotta you gotta win more of these things because you have to imagine jets can be better his healing his. I think a little higher. So i'm with you one a one b. He's right there but just you can't come back next year and think what he did this year could get it done because it it. It didn't get done this year. I don't think will get it done next year. He's got to have more. I will say that. I think if you remove that wash ugo crash jesse to preserve shannon. Yeah yeah that was. That was the moment right. Not only points wise but momentum to and the thumb side. That's a part of the momentum caused that caused the momentum at. Yeah he wrote once on the break. Apparently you know so. That's two weeks two weeks three weeks two weekends where the guy wrote wants but yeah i i agree. I think I think cooper would have you know but yeah think you're also right down. Jet will be better. Probably and so. Cooper would would need to match that and j too. Don't forget it. Jay mart can avoid like twenty injuries next year. Yeah he's also not someone i mean. Look how good he was when he lives there. So i i'd go one eight one one. See for those three. I did this on on my call them us week if i gave jay like i think i gave two-thirds to motos that he didn't ride at the races and he was nine back a jet. If you just count the races or at and give them a couple of poems. I know you know that's a. That's a lot of math. That's a lotta sideways math. Nine back of jet only so it just shows what was very capable if he would have been out there the whole time but do you think the dealership makes a better offer and he and he just stays. I mean with the way things are going right now in this industry at the dealership. No what decision. He's gonna make with that because those look good to me. He's got a tough tough call. Jt ahead half a million parts manager position. All right joe schmo four two on the day and not only a second overall for joe he passed. ap in the National points and gets a career number. Joe schmo has a career number t. at school. I mean i hate the supercross aspect of that. But i'm happy for jobs. I i really think he is. Taken huge drives forward. Yup we were honestly. We were kind of making fun of him for kind of back during into a really good series finish last year and i think he not only kind of shut us up. He is really kind of earned that respect. Now he's legitimately get his charge in. The first motor was good dude. He was far back and he just i mean he. He deserves a podium level supercross guy and on a good day podium of outdoor guy and legit deserves every ride he. Every ounce of the righty has hampshire lost a front end in the second moto. Daniel went down to eight on the day. Just another two six or another another day and rj. Another day in the life of our hampshire he's consistent. He's very very consistent. I will say this. Though from a pure fan perspective he might be the most fun writer to watch on saturdays. He gives it everything and that front tyre is tucking a hundred times a modo. It puts them down once. But there's ninety nine other ones that almost put him down every moto any never ever ever shuts off it's a it's a relentless pursuit and an endless chase. No matter what is going on he could swap and he doesn't even care it just keeps going and sometimes it stays up and those those are great. Sometimes the old wash comes through and puts them down exactly. Yeah he's he's the new the new wacker as maybe for the horse is easy to cheer for. Though i will say that. Oh yeah yeah yeah. I don't see him changing. I don't seem smoothing out in twenty twenty two. You know what i mean. I i see all this still happening too old at this point. These two two sat see race wins. But she's going to be difficult that approach as i. I think i said this earlier. This season guy was telling me that a guy that used to ride with them tells me that he just trust traction one hundred percent of the time. There's always gonna be traction to them. So i think that's i think that's part of that is growing up in florida like you just grow up in these sandy conditions. That are you know plus traction all the time. And i think you just get you. That's just who he has his a writer. But that's what it grew up riding onto. You know. I i gotta admit i was pulling for max to get third overall. And he was at one point. He made a run at joe kind of lost the edge a little bit on hometown track attracted his dad one and all that kind of stuff. I was looking forward to getting his first career podium but fourth overall from maxwell and Jt good get day fantasy wise. I was a little frustrated that he had a really rough policy In just killed it this weekend. But yeah i mean he's clearly getting much better We got glimpses of it like that. I wrote the first. Paula round was pretty incredible and then there was some races in there were like. I don't know what's going to happen. Here is running around ten twelve fifteen But yeah that that was a great way to end the series. And i think it also propels you into the off season with some confidence so when he needs to go back supercross practice like he's going to have that really nice feeling of ryan around front his first moto the year and his last year might have been a best motives up paulo. One you know but hunter lawrence jt. He told me after the race that his kit was the best lip kit out of anybody. He's got a tie in with daniel ricardo of f. lawn. I don't really know what it was. I know who cardo is. Obviously but i don't really know what the deal was but he was angry at me for not agreeing that he had the kid of the day. I liked it. I thought the power was really cool. he did have like a custom ricardo helmet that i think daniel had some input design into I really did like it though. I don't know if it was the best of the exiting to see single asset of the day. It was probably there for me. I told him. I would look at all the to get back to them. That's still wasn't good enough. Okay all right. He said because it's not fly. And i said no no not at all. It's not a fly. Think i'm even even for me. Like i mean i i'm there. It's good right very angry. Daniel not very angry. But i think you are probably the one that should never be accused because you will do it at to the clint. Were you pissed me off talking about other people's stuff so yeah that's what i kinda told hunter i'm like look man. It's not a fly thing i will. I'll just let let me look at all the cats. And i'll get back to you so good question for both you that you do. You consider this summer success or failure for hunter. It's a success. He won a race and so third. The points in the win over. Overall your call to win you know. Some of it was little underwhelming. Jt youtube successor. I think as a as a top wine third points and winning a race If you're just saying that that's accessible if you really dig into it. There were some weekends where he wasn't great right. I was thinking too i. It's weird because as good as it is on a macro level. I feel a little underwhelmed. Because i thought i would have sought more and i don't know if this was like a kind of a foundational year again because the guy's been hurt so much so that that to really big part of that right now. He's not he's not well. And i'm just i'm wondering though for some of these guys if they're like look i need. I need to put a whole year together. Be at every race. And then maybe next year i'll i'll give it another run. I'll go for the jugular. Because i feel like sometimes these guys a comeback from injury and they wanna be winning even like four care. I feel like this summer for him. Was a slow building foundation rebuild and i feel confident in both of them going into next year because they put together just kind of clean summers but A little underwhelming too. I kinda thought hunter would have been the one of the two who had a better shot at this title. And then it's it's weird that it didn't work out that way but i was just curious on your thoughts if you if it's a success or failure or kind of just okay just curious. Yeah i feel better about you said you feel confident for. I don't feel confident for fork there. I mean i'm not ready to write him off. Either but certainly hey mike while he was third in the first moto and second he was thirty eight gates picker whatever and he got fifth place. So good ride for awesome fork nearby. Jury still out for me. I'll take. I'll take hunter every day. Rush trust hunter. More you for sure. Yeah dylan schwartz. What'd you guys making the moseman schwartz thing jt. Well we didn't get to see everything about it. But i was. I was honestly more shocked at the comment. I think froze communist that he he was thinking. Maybe those two got together. Somehow to me was more shocking. I was that was more notable. Okay communists i think maybe those two got together walking. They are basically n each other inside. Each other's motorcycles fit basically welded into one. one machine. right yeah moseman. Stage moseman told me i can race. You know he had a plan. The bottom of that hill to charge to the inside and eight and he knew shorts going wide. But then schwartz went a little further inside and moseman said he's already committed so he says a racing incident but yeah i think it was just a huge bummer for shorts because it robs him of such a great modal finish but i mean racing racing incident happened. That was really the only thinks bummed about his. I talked schwartz centigrade. After he goes ten seven on the day could have been a five seven very easily. Three four seven something like because most probably would have got four seven very realistic. Yeah yeah absolutely. Josh for easy daniel pulls the whole shot. I love it. I've i've i've a soft spot for fill in writers have a i have an extra soft spot for the team for allowing him to run his own suspension. Because i when i found out burris had this deal and i was like dude congrats. Well-deserved put your suspension on the bike. And he will do. And then when. I heard it on the broadcast i was. It warmed my little heart that the team led him run his own suspension. Because i can tell you from my one experience when you hop on someone else's dirt bike hits this nice tiny factory. Great saying it's not great if you don't like the way the bite feels if it's not set up for you and for him to be able to put his stuff on and just kind of use the good parts of the factory bike to be able to use the parts of his own program. That made him comfortable. I felt that made the difference. Because if you're a young kid like him and you get this opportunity and you flop it that sets you back so far like for me. I was twenty six. When i got my fill in ride. My career was over anyway so it wasn't a big deal but for a kid to get a chance for it to go bad because you don't like the bike. That would have been horrible for him. So i look at this whole thing for him like just incredible lead laps. Battling looking like one of the guys. And i i know it didn't turn out great in the results column. I don't think it was outside the top ten. But i i don't care i just passed the test. He looked like one of those guys. And so for me. I just i see. The whole thing is a huge success. I don't know what it does for him. But man. I'm i'm just pump for the kid. I think they find a way to keep them on austrian bike next year somewhere. Somehow nathan ramsey is doing some stuff form for orange brigade right. And i think i think they find a way to put them somewhere. Jt i thought he got the bike so he had his private but he's out of a motor home with his dad right and everything else and i thought myself. Wow this kid always charges up. He looks really good. Looks in shape. I've told them that a few times. I'm like dude. You're always charge up at the other modes. You know what i mean. Really good privateer effort. Everything else he gets to fill in he gets better starts and i think that speed was a little bit too much for him and now his fitness was a little bit in question on the factory. Only you know what i mean because i think he was hired. He's going higher level than he was at intensity. I think that's very likely but to me. I think he did everything you could ever ask of out of somebody in that scenario right you just when you're when you get the shot you have to make the most of the shot. And he did that man. He was winning the damn race. You know like to me. It was just such a huge step forward when he was offered. Better equipment I just love to see that because we see so often. It doesn't go that way. Fact your bike or whatever. And it's just a women's daniel this ends up being like daniel nightmare nightmares for the rest of your life. You think about all four motos man. He was up there. He was a contender. And yes okay. At the end of the motos he wasn't able to stay on the pace of shimoda. Those guys but for fifteen or twenty minutes. He'd sure was. He was just as good as those guys for over half the race. Yup i agree. That's why i think he's somehow there's no ride form but i think they figure something out. I hope so. He'd i honestly believe he deserves it. Have you ever talked to him too. Yeah really good kid. Dad's cool so maybe the skinniest kid i've ever seen him on. He is he looks well. I think german as i'm beat for looking eleven justice photo but okay kitchen. Nine kitchen was again fast. Kitchen again passed a bunch of dudes but then he fell in the second moto and then he told me afterwards. I was just walked. dude. I said to him. Hey man you were kind of catching fry a little bit and you were moving up and then you you've lost some time. Did you tip over to jump off track again. He's like no man. I was just super tired enough. He it was a lot of work right. He had worked way up past warren. Yeah yeah crash crash crash. Second moto went way back in and moved up. Yes moseman like. We said. Eleven eight on the day. I said i thought you'd be bomb. He goes you just. Don't know me very well steve. Okay all right moving on. I would have thought he'd be bound with that finished nope because he was happy. He always happy said so. Eleven eight on the day for mohsen but certainly showed some speed fry nine tan no word if he chained himself to the bike or not at the end of the day to keep it but yeah he's actually this road immediately from the track to like the pits loaded into a were never to be seen again or just take the bike on the highway to the hotel. Yes what i mean. Just the bike out of there from the track right. They'll never find him but he wrote better at the end of the year. Yeah but it's still not to the level that it needs to be on for that team. We know that team doesn't they. Don't waste time. And if you're getting tense that's that's not good enough. Just what it is so foreigners bike broke. We touched on that. And i could have been a best finish for foreigner. He was pretty good dare kelly thirteenth boomer for derek. Kelly points at adair. Kelly advancing yup. What else Recall zanga from holland. Seventeen eighteen jt. You didn't pick a last week fantasy like so many other people did and this week paid off for you bullshit Yeah yeah it goes. It goes both ways i've been. I've been on the receiving on the receiving this week in and out. But i've been burned. Nanny times austin black seventeenth again like this kid. Charges heart looks good. Kilroy fourteenth I don't have a masterplan second moto anybody now. Dns i'm guessing bike issue. 'cause i did not see a crash i. Nobody was still riding kinda hard. So yeah maybe bike issue. Oh i'm sorry. No i mean. He was slipping back quickly. Well that could be issue too but yeah what else. Tanner war from canada. Daniel tanner awards crashed late in the second moto but otherwise have got points both motives. I feel like i contributed to that. I i helped him with his results this weekend. How so He dm me and asked me where he could ride during the week because he needed a ride. And i pointed him in the right direction of marysville riverfront. I don't know if he took me up on it or not. But i feel like my response and the d. m. is what contributed to his great weekend. Okay well i'll take it and i will. I don't really want to hear an argument. I want i want some credit canada. You get yep okay One of the guys told me that they were thinking about putting dylan. Right on sexton's bike but dylan weeded himself. But damn i could have been. I would have been amazing. You saw his crash. Yeah i dunno. Jt did you ever see it. It's a big one the on you.

Sweet jesus What a race for dylan france. Jt that that is his season in a nutshell. We thought happened right in front of us. Yeah i mean he's fantastic. I mean the effort he put in really without. You know any need to. The second moto was Was pretty great. I mean he closed down on the likes up cooper web. These guys distance he closed was incredible and I think that you know track. That was that tricky and slippery and in a word not great. Maybe two words not I think his his skill set the things he does really. Well shines even more you know and when the tracks easy to go fast on. I don't think he has such a an advantage over these guys but when it's really difficult to go fast i think he kind of rises to the top and he proved on sakamoto by with that comeback. Yeah i mean the harder you push chocolate that damore mistakes you make but throttle control. Line selection that kind of stuff which things he's great at. I mean daniel. He had cody shocks a leg in his bike. He was thirty nine. Four cody huck Yeah i i look for anna's like he's the new freight train you know. Tell max been that guy for the last few years that can just turn it on and just won't stop to the checkered You think back to the basket days. Never it used to do the same thing like the last ten minutes was crazy. Well that's that's his dylan now and once he kind of locked in and the train starts move. It just doesn't stop and it's it's fun to watch because he he has this field to the way he rides where you think it's wild and crazy but if you actually watch him close it's not at all. He's very methodical. It's just at a really high pay so it's a it's a rare combination of technical and willing to hang it out a little bit and Dude he he's bundle. Watch and i for me personally. I've just really grown to like him a lot more. I've always kinda liked him. But i just respect him a lot more just the way. He races His commitment the way he respects is competition the way he talks about them. He is really figured out how to have the whole package here. So i mean i know. This is closing down of a season show. But i i can't wait for next year just to see what he does see. Get back it up. And then what. He does indoors. He's just all around like really fun to watch. And i think his fan base has grown. And he's definitely grown past the things of the past. Because i got people that i know that didn't like him and they just respect the crap out of now so Kudos to him on a good season he. He's really. He's fulfilled that well rounded well rounded package on and off the bike. He's awesome to a t. After the race he told me a little bit about first of all. There was no pressure there. He felt pressure paula. This when he felt no pressure and so he was really able to ride loose and free and yet that seems about right and he also told me about how hard it is to work with. As far as i want the better you know. The bike needs to be better. We this test at nine o'clock today all day and then we'll test at nine o'clock the next morning like i've heard from people that are have been around in this summer that there is nothing else in his life besides being better at racing dirt bikes like and this is these are from people that are used to being around that level of talent right but the the level of dedication from him seems to be a pretty unique. What ride damn christian kristianstad. He was coming up on him. And you know that was for the overall when he got christian for those two points. He needed christmas like yeah. I felt like flipping off. But i couldn't do. I couldn't do anything. I this is nothing i can do. Did he was he was. Yeah like you said just eating these guys up. That are like amazing riders. I honestly thought in that first month that christian correct might run away with it. I realized that in the second. You mean first of all. I know secondhand leyland laps. Okay yeah whenever he got out. And i'm like with the way the season is. I don't think anybody really wants to be here so much. Just go they didn't work out but actually only lead. But aca i think tomac exit the fastest lap by think one point eight seconds or something in modal one and then went down and he might one that moto he was entering that he was getting away always yet he would. It was cranking up in the crash. Bennett spiked up. Waterbed and said he heard a some. Yeah but yeah you can just see you can see the the machine spooling up for one of those rides. Yeah he then christian said he went off the track in front of them and then he went up again. Chris what's this guy doing would get close again. What was going on with them. A little bit so four one. On the day he goes out a winner daniel for cowie and for kranz not a winner over all. But the the last moto cow he wayne's it and it took a balls out gnarly ride by dylan for steel is overall. Yeah i i don't know if you guys saw the instagram. I think it was tro motocross. Posted a video of dylan's finding out. He won the overall. He didn't even know it and he was kinda learning in the moment. And i thought that was kinda cool and then for eli yet that fall. He didn't even have to win that moto if he just gets to web. He goes three one. But you know he'll look back and realize that that fall costume another overall which would have been a great way to end his entire run with cowie. But i will say for me personally. I crowns was my mechanic. When i filled in at geiko relationship with him that i still have now and i. I mean as much as i want to say. Good job to ally. Do want to say good job krantz. Because he's been under a lot of pressure for a long time a lot of wins championships and he's done a great job and i think he has earned his new role which is to be home and be more in house so huge. Shout out to. Obviously the telmex team cowie for me. Personally i just want to give it to cranston. Good good run bronco. Jt not happy him being on the broadcast so much looking more. I don't like when they put things in the middle of the race like runny like a story feature in another race. Don't put up graphics about a mechanic like that's all three moto or asked. The moto suffered when the races on you show the race. I don't think they have. They don't have time. There's like a ten minute window before the race starts crates moto and then there's like a thirteen minute window after the and i know there's stuff going on but i want if the race is on i wanna see the race that's daniel. He's tough. he's tough on the on the crew. No comment from me right now on this one but anyways. Jt by the way craig last my bed. Not just one. But yeah karan's second winningest Mechanic rider combo of all time. We think it's carmichael and goose up top to no one's surprise and we think it's grants after that so that's awesome that's aggressive and he's going in house And i heard cooper's guy is going to work for eli next year Jelly bean jelly jelly. What's his name daniel. I don't know jelly. I've no clue. Jelly bean jelly. But that's not his real name. But he's working for your. Are you sure there is a real name is joey being. There is a jelly bean producer. Guy that's i think that's his name is also should night. I don't think should shoot. He's mechanic. I feel like sugars. The behind bars Cuba web third overall and yeah led some laps qualified fastest two coupe web. There we go turn it around late in the season. He said on his instagram. He wants to show. He's not a super cost only guy. So you're national champion. I know i know outdoor title. Bro we know. That's what i keep holding onto whenever somebody wants to talk on kubes outdoor national championship. Jason anderson okay. I'll give you that like he'd really did that. Great outdoors right a national champion. And so yeah. He can ride outdoors. he can write outdoors. Hot raft fifth-overall craig fourth overall. I tweeted this in the in the first mode of that. Craig could've gone five with no brakes. Maybe there was a little hard because the road pretty well but there was a clear a clear. Line there between these guys rocks in. I moto if i told i said the. Jt the start of this. That i motor was verana season nutshell. Well that's the first one was also maybe rocks season nutshell except for dila. Yeah i mean. I don't even think we can surprise anymore. Yeah this is just what kenny is. If conditions are really tough he is going to suffer. I mean that's just what it seems like. It's going to be from here on out. And i don't think it's as i mentioned many times but we just should expect. It should expect tough days for him. Daniel it's almost like he has one bad race a series that costs them. Your honor and this is what people were saying. I'm not gonna dig up old arguments. So i'm not gonna go there what i will say though is i've already had people reach out to me. And they're like man. What a flop. What a what a. What a poor season. And again i think. You gotta look at the expectations with him because he hasn't won a championship since the injury right since the big injury had won a title so the expectations with him is title or bust. Which i don't know if that's all the way fair. I think again. It's all going to have to align itself perfectly for him to be able to get through a long long championship without these issues. I personally think he has a better shot at it indoors. Because i don't think the weather will obviously play the role that outdoors do and i. I just don't know if he can do. Twenty four motos. Where you know. There's going to be hot ones. There's going to be some bad stick it motos and if he if he's preserving at all you can't win when you're preserving against someone like dylan or eli or indoors. I still think there's a. There's a shot. He gets one indoors. I don't think he can get one outdoors. I don't think he can handle twenty four. Motos your honor. You were saying your honor all year long. But he's saying indoors. It's not such a factor i it is but not as much as all i'm saying. I think i think indoors can be managed better than outdoors just as jt. If you're roxanne. I think i know your answer to this. But if you're rocks and do you take any solis. Any pride any joy and happiness any good feelings and good vibes out of the fact. You finish number one and combined points okay. Moving on maxine. Honesty i motor crashed. I think on the opening lap and came all the way back to ninth second moto. He he gave craig a little run there. It was all over. Craig a little bit so could you from fancy going to rocky mountain we think. Jt but good job from anstey. Yeah i believe it's look they're gonna have three guys over there. I think so that would be That'd be a nice move for him. Heart raffin and empty making twist not proud. Db billy bolt. Yeah i pumped for him. Obviously but for me. I i. I'm pump for the team Atp guys there nor cal guys. I've known the pipes family like she's my whole life. I think so for them to end the season with brandon's finish and max's ride i just. I'm happy for them that they could close down with some positives. 'cause it's been bumpy road up and down then the online stuff and there's just been some high and low moments for the team so i'm just happy personal side. A costumier journalist at a race the harassment harassment of esteemed media member. Well they They look they turned it around for it. Seemed like things got better from then on once they put you in your place. Things like the team turned things around. I said this a few weeks ago. They overhauled their suspension and motor package. And there've been better sense and it's easy to see so good job. Keep that up hot raffle. Stay there next year and then. Jt boggles going to ride their bike. I guess that makes sense. That makes sense tested out and see if he wants to be there. Yeah okay it doesn't make sense. Bogor gets quick. I heard that's like this week. Bogle and twisted tea like that make stomachs a nice combo. Well i he has. He has talent I think he he just needs to be healthy. That's that's the biggest thing greg. Because i don't think we're seeing anywhere near the best will we can see. But yeah you get a fully Fully healthy justin bogle and happy. One you i mean you have a guy that can be at the top ten and for that team. That's that's great results. Ryan sarah eight eight job ryan sir out crazy good. Yeah was really good job privateer. What did he end up into points. Do all yeah it all right. Oh boy daniel yeah he did. No i knew it was at most. I'm saying diddy actually do all of the eighteenth in the points and actually if you look at his season the second half is obviously we. We lost some depth but by far the second half a season he came on pretty strong. Top-placing privateer is cody shocked at one seventy four. And then after that is rod rodbell at one zero five and then surat so bogle ninth or eighth yet we said bogle eighth. I hadn't been fantasy so i was watching him. Jt in the first motor moved up. That was good. Robbie wage meant tenth place good job robbie wage. It's pretty surprising. Yeah he wrote really low on the two weeks in a row. Obviously this weekend was better but We can't overlook the depths part of this. But who cares like those guys all road really. Well yeah rob l. eleventh. Bryson gardner kevin's got to ride bike and I the first model. He was going backwards. And i guess the talk about daniel about the suspension like he just jumped on joey settings without an not only that but he also didn't ride the first half of the summer so hit. His opportunity wasn't a fair one. In my opinion it was it more of a cool opportunity but not a realistic. Like here's your shot. Because he wasn't fully prepared and he just hopped on someone's bike so i think whatever you can get out of the day is a good thing but i just hope people don't look at it like all yet a shot and he didn't really do a crazy good job there. There's variable as you got to consider and his he wasn't like a very easy where you had a ten rounds of knocking on the door. Get your shot heavy miranda. I don't even think he was riding in june so Good day for him. i think. Cool opportunity probably a really cool day for rj wage. When i think those are the first points. He scored outdoors and sixteen fourteen on the day and his fitness really played into like he was he was just grinding out. There and wearing is down so good jaffer. Rj whitman are jerky. overall freddie. noren crashed in both motos crush. The second moto. I think he crashed the first model to fix the start. The second motor. Yeah yeah yeah. I think took a shock kenny. Kenny hurt his foot. There friend is down. Took noren down took similar watch. Have you watched the replay of the oh man nor is all over the place. Yeah exactly starch pinball. Yeah what else. Bellamy lemay was running. Ninth and motor is shock. Went bummer for ben. Couldn't get fixed with a second moto. Josh moseman came out of retirement. Or whatever it is to. He added orange helmet onto madan. Yup what was his results. I didn't i didn't look obama. Who moseman thirty twenty seven. Yeah devon bates actually was winning the first moto at one point. I took a photo. That was beating ken rocks. And everybody hashtag live timing Latent smell landis kid got got a nineteenth and a second moto late and smell god. Jt we are getting fucking old. Yes lance. His kid is scoring points racing. The ad it's it's you know it's time to hang it up. I can't just analyze right. Just hang up. Yeah yeah well. This is my last year anyway. So right Scott messy. we always overlooked scott. She shot out to scott messy good job. And that's it for fifties right anything else boys notice you wanna talk about going to the long break actually for me. I go to italy on wednesday more racing but For many of these shows articles and things we do we go to a long break. Are you going to do the tripleheader. Jt coming up in italy. I have requested it looks that way. Oh oh boy. I was scheduled to do. The there was only one right right. It was halloween halloween day. I was doing that one But and i was wanting to portugal the weekend before so now i'm trying to destroy all those all into one week daniel. You're gonna go to italy. Daniel do any. Gp's i mean. I didn't go to hang town a half hour my house. I probably not okay. Just checking could be an opportunity for eagle grip. I have to check the The local crop and see what they got there and maybe send a team there some nets but other than that no i i really don't have any interest other than i will say i have been watching some of the gp races. And do i. I wish that. I have been more involved with these guys. And no these guys better. Because it's pretty damn fun to watch man. Like i and i really liked their tracks. So i as much as i'm kind of disconnected from it. Everything i see. I really like suggest you understand why you're so in 'cause it's pretty damn. The next two is just nutty like these next to and you know what i mean. But it's like different guys all the time and and yeah it's it's good daniel. How would you approach this vaccine thing. What are you wanna give us your thoughts on the vaccine and the entry requirements to be i. I don't know anything. I don't know i mean i know you're like in it every day looking my information comes from you. So what i'm saying is i didn't know if you just want to share and kenyans or you know really put thoughts out there on the on subject dole. Nah i'm pretty opinionated person. And i usually just say whatever i'm thinking but there's a few subjects that i definitely keep to myself the best i can. That would be probably at the top of the list. I know that's why. I wanted to bring it up. I wanted to make you as uncomfortable as possible. Thank you all right. Also to not you know. There's a misconception that i hate these these these bikes being revved after championships. Burnouts and stuff. I think that's a fair. No i don't think knows. No i am. I am here to set the record straight. All you people deming me and tweeting me. Like i am fine with a championship burnout. Nothing wrong with that. That's that's a two minute thing. Three minute thing shut it down. I'm fine with reading your bike. And all of that. What i am not fine with is the rockstar husky thing. From for years ago the designations. Ktm thing the atom scenes torello national championship. Where you're actively trying blow the bike up for ten minutes and you're just reading the shit out of it. You're pouring pouring beer in the exhaust. Your your turning exhaust pipe. Blazing hot like volcano. That's the part. I'm not fine with so. Stop tagging me on the burnouts. Nothing wrong with a good burnout after a race win. that's cool. Who cares whatever it is. I'm gonna read this shit for ten minutes and hopefully it blows up in a dozen blew up. I'm gonna rabbit again. That's the part where. I don't get that part and that's ridiculous and stupid and you'll never change my mind on that but burn out. You have any reasons why you don't like it. It's just stupid. It's stupid to blow up a bike. It's stupid to treat a bike like that. It's stupid to not be anybody allowed to have a conversation anywhere within one hundred yards of that bike. Like all of that part like that's all stupid but a good burn out no problem with burn up. Hey how about. This verandas is all about his diet right. He's a very strict diet. Obviously won't let anything into his body. That's not calm. You know thoroughly approved yet. He's got beer shooting off the back of his muffler wide open. I mean these. Does he know what's going into his body at that moment. Yeah because i mean that video. I'm thinking man for a guy who's really concerned about what he eats. He is eating a shit on a chemicals at this moment and he don't seem to care. Yeah i don't know and also to by the way to the vaccine thing not to get too much into it. But i find it ironic that one of the one of the anti vaccine guises chat and he's fine to have that opinion but then somebody reminded me about how i said on the show on my show a little while ago. They had to go to tijuana for surgery. That was not approved in america. So i just yeah. I remember. I remember this twenty. Ten was sick. Chad was like yeah. I had to go to tijuana and get something done. It wasn't approved in america. But i'm like hold on what tijuana like. Okay walking he was going back across the border every day. Yeah so anyways. I just found that funny. Okay so yeah so. Stop tagging me in the burn videos. I'm fine it's no problem a good burnt out. You just want championship problem. But you've had when you had eight racetrack tech rants about burnouts. I think it's fair that the fans can tag you win. There's a burnout you deserve. I'm sorry stopped on a blow. The bike up you idiot. That's all i'm saying. That's the point burn out is not blowing. The bike up. A burnout is not blowing the bike up. Not at all you just just do tire light up a lot of tire all right good. The bikes have feeling drive. Also to roger koster told me how dumb it was yesterday as. Well thank you roger the man anything stop. He knows he's the man he knows. So anyways. so congratulations to to jet generational down a generational daniel. I'm past that argument. I i don't even want ever talk about it ever again. Just because you know. I will say one thing though i hold on one last wollen last one last thing. This one's for us dave. I did a poll on my instagram. Last night generational with question mark. Yes or no. The tim. Ferry said yes. So just want okay. Jt the timmy. Timmy ballooning trusted thank you. Thank you thank you timmy. Eight though here's the best part. No writers responded like literally writers. Follow me but there was not not one writer who voted yes. Or no at all but michael esi and tim. Ferry both voted. Yes i just want to let that. Be known. Semi also said that james stewart and ricky carmichael from two thousand seven would get like twelve to fourteen something like that and today's racing and jt. Do you think timmy could name. Two things about jet lawrence Maybe 'cause he gets water press but stuff like that where it's like an opinion and any really have to weigh factors and like really think about it. Do not go. it's emmy is he's just going to shoot from the hip. Whatever comes to pops in his mind. Well daniel using instagram poll. To prove a point. I mean come on. Hey did you. Do you want to know what the poll results were or should we just end the show. Yeah what was it. Eighty five percent yes. Fifteen no There we go all right all right. Well i was gonna talk about mookie to signing rockstar suzuki but the initial thoughts on that jason rockstar husky. Okay that was news that was. I'm i'll be happy to have. Mookie back in the outdoor series. And i'm happy you got a two year deal to which i know. He was really looking for him. Training bakers is an odd thing. I gotta wait and see if that's actually happening. I hear it is. But i want to but it's happening it was on. Tv talked about it on tv beggars. Yes wow wow. Wow he's already know what it is. They do like i. I was there when my older brother was winning championships. there. I watched it every single day. I know exactly what. I'm asking right so i thought that was a pretty good answer. Some i hadn't really thought about is like i. I already am well-versed in this program. Right okay all right That's that's a wrap. We'll probably do some more silly season stuff or i dunno.

#5 - BEER - Cole Seely

"Welcome back everybody because everybody enjoys roadrunners AK- beer with jared and I am with special guests. His name is Cole Sealy Cole. How are you doing buddy? Just doing my best to stand by and also stay entertained and Trying to entertain as well trying to come up with this I don't know new content or whatever I can just from the house. It's like everybody else. You're being responsible but also your your e e. It's hard for you to sit idle because you're used to not. You're being far from idle all those helmets behind you. We'll talk about your history kind of post racing and what what you're doing In retirement quote unquote. How you thirty just turned thirty. Justin thirty three happy birthday. I remember that yeah. I don't I don't like the word retired that makes me feel like I'm done working Retirement rate thing onto the next chapter Yeah retired time making too old and I'm definitely not retiring. Definitely I think even if I had the choice to never work again. I don't think that what I like. The busy sample my feet. I appreciate you correct me. It's kind of like being a military soldier. They're not. They're not a retired soldier. It's a former marine of former air force. You know so. You're a former supercross racer. Is that correct? Okay so our four former supercross racer coal ceilings. Join US and it is called beer so I kick things off by sharing. What libation we're drinking. I'm particularly drinking. Uncle Bears One thousand nine hundred co lab. My Buddy drew ski and Andrew. Uncle Bears. They're here in Gilbert Arizona. One thousand nine hundred and they're down in Tucson this depots sour. Wpa My friend. Kim Actually did the label as well. You can't see it but this is a this is kind of a banger in here because it's eight percent sour double dry hopped with Amarillo. What are you drinking Cole? Good all the only had my fridge right now. So that makes sense so being a former supercross racer. I gotTa talk about this. Because I love how you kind of. It was almost like you're Mitzvah. It was a party as watching some of your youtube videos right after and one of your major events after coming in announcing a retirement was rebel street rhythm and it seemed like you guys came out and you did things your way again. You're not you're still flying the Honda flag you're working with them respectively but not under that corporate restraint. I guess you'd call it and you came out swinging man you guys. You guys are all kid out and white through on the NARC SHADES. And you party man. Yeah that's the kind of attribute the whole straight rhythm. Bob Is really laid back and it. Kinda has like ninety steel like back in the day. Everyone needs to party. Everyone used to throw raise. It wasn't as serious a report. Now we're kind of transitioning into more of a jock for whereas like you train train train. It your best cyclists with I Dunno cyclist kind of attitude. I guess like mentality of racing. So we're like screw it like we're GonNa do it our way. There's not like a huge like endurance. Race or anything like that and it'd be honest. I only had three weeks on the bike. I had like a huge shoulder reconstruction so I knew going into it. Like I'm probably not GonNa win so let's just have fun and and as soon as I get eliminated party. Let's make a party out of this whole thing. Read Morales are super excited about having like we were like had so many people. After I got eliminated I was doing burnouts. And you know runs chugging beer and whatever and like honestly one time. I looked over and bikes went down. The street I was like Shit Racist are going on. I had totally forgot. We had so many people in our bit partying and having a good time that I don't know I think we were like more of a show than natural event. I think it just speaks to. Who Your brand is your your fan base. Your what you kind of brought to supercross what you're bringing in your post supercross season but if you don't know who he is former supercross racer went from two fifty four if you could elaborate. How early age. Because there's a lot of people that that do admire you and other people that don't even know who you are but if you could give kind of a quick little wikipedia of Lia's how young where you're at what's going on. Yeah so I I was never really like a prodigy per se in our in our sport. I never won any race in amateur I'm basically made it up until like right before it was on the term pro and God privateer ride like wasn't paid anything like that. So basically started from Ground Zero only thing I was provided really was the bike and somebody get me to the races so from there and just kind of my way through ten years professional end up on battery. Honda which is one of the most prestigious things you can be on my whole Premier class career on on that. That's kind of my. My story is kind of more of an underdog who kind of made it and ended up winning and a lot of racism on the clock but Only one in that regard but just kind of made a name for myself and just like Kinda thought it was like. I wasn't really supposed to make it as far as I might as. Well have a hell of a time doing it so Probably could have been a little bit more seriously my career. But that's just I don't know I don't have fun. I love racing. I love writing and always wanted to keep that fun aspect for really wanted to fully think as a job and even though as well it's really good you know career to have but I just enjoy actually re riding definitely Was more important to me than than maybe like the best racer ever. It's what you did. It's not who you are. Which is that correct in saying. Yeah exactly and what do you attribute kind of this? Wow I'm actually good at this and you got picked up was because I know your mom and your dad and your brother integral part and your grandpa which you have a tattoo of and that's actually where we'll get to that actually Dr Wu. I'll just say it right now. Dr Who is? Who Did your tattoos? You introduced me to Dr Woo. Which has rat but tribute? Did I just answer it? What do you attribute your success to? Yeah I mean I I think like all along I knew like I was good at one thing I I was kind of the guy that was like good growing up at like standing and being all. He's pretty good at all sports. But like Motta was great at the I don't know I think my my dad's GRANDPA's. We traveled a lot. And that part of it man I hated amateur scene. It felt so like like soccer. Mom sure like literally DOT Kinda thing. They're like my son's. Aided that that the moms and dads you saw that kind of the stage MOMS and dads. It's something that's the part of our four probably more now than when I was in it so I I don't know I always like love the just the joy of being on a bike though I don't know that Kinda carried me as far as it could and then like. Oh yes I can make a living doing this Kinda push myself and and definitely push myself further than I thought I would ever make it so I'm proud to say that but now on the back end of it it's nice to kind of look back on all the achievements realize like man. I really wasn't supposed to go that far from the sport but but I'm got Kinda lucky and got a cup breaks and really people truly have been a part of his team for almost twelve years now. And that was the biggest. That's the biggest name that never met my entire life. Yeah I was watching I've done a few you know. We have mutual friends. One of which is Jeremy McGrath and just T. L. D. and Troy Lee and just looking at some of his old mcgrath base their McGrath addict and looking at his old helmets and senior helmet collection. I mean that's just such an iconic name and I see you still work with them. You're still doing video shoots and all that. Let's let's jump around here because that's kind of don't want to go on a single track here. We're kind of jumping all across the board if you're in a two wheels you're in the four wheels. How did the four wheel fascination come about? Because you've now since started to your own events circuit spirit your Adrift Cat. You have an S. fifteen run through your cars that you have because you have an ESA team that caught on fire. You have another vehicle. I mean right. I saw that I was like. Oh yeah leaking fuel on what we call it. We've got a better than oil. Tell you that though because the fuel that goes oil just sits and just marinades. Yeah so actually. My first year I wasn't even a salary based writer. Yeah unfairly design ten. My first bonus check from truly bought me my first S. thirteen. That's like my i. I always loved it and high school. You know but I could never afford to have a car like all. My money went into rate or just riding. They're getting the track or whatever so. My very first idea was like a four thousand dollar bonus track from from Charlie and like another four from Honda. Like I'm going to get their team back. That's where it all started and it just I mean you got rid of that car another car. Then I started building asked his team on the side over the past three years And I like anybody who's ever to forty expertise. 'cause they can't have you know like the like the holy grail like. I need this car can just because I have it Soon as I found one and could afford one on one about actually about places though. I love that car now already kind of building on the side but I just threw that in that car. Twenty Three fifty's like my my dreams. I love it so you you're SR and S. Fifteen. That's what it is. Yeah our Veto so lots of our patient make that work but yeah boost turned out. But I'll make like five fifty right now. It's like conservative into fourth. It goes for sure I mean. You're kind of purist when it comes to that sense because actually right before we jumped on this I jumped on. I was on instagram earlier. And just kicking around the house and wasting some time hanging with the kids and Atta Mills. E went on On Live instagram and I requested and he he actually answer off do. My hair was not on fleet as your I. I'm going to talk about your hair in a minute because you always have good hair but Adam Adam does say hello but also everybody who has a teen choice rose to Jason. Does that upset you? You cut the I. I feel like no. I would definitely on the fence about because I had a one guy. Actually in storage The one that I was like should I put this or do I just go like. Sr came in the car. So there's no conversions. There's no nothing that that make that Putting that engine in hard. This is not supposed to come in this car. I'm putting it in like might as well I sometimes I've had that thing break so and I've been like mashed gone one day of the year. You know simple and easy power but there's something about twenty that you WanNa make right and when it runs the best ever so much. I still have one in. My thirteen. Is like that being make three hundred horsepower. Which is in a lot. Obviously but I have so much in that far yet now I love the looks of it and obviously you want it to look good. I remember Going to supercross you. Hope to sell some tickets and going to see you even had an S. thirteen in your supercross intro. I mean that was probably five years ago or so and still have that car. We need you know intro video on new things like that. Who I am not writing. I'm drifting so like they really wanted to emulate that in my in my opening ceremony video which is really cool the cool. We'll kind. Of course I was having engine problems while we were trying to never fails right. Yeah my my Jason Monroe. Jason Monroe Right Monroe media. Yeah yeah he's always he's like I'm out here. Coal is again now. I know and so talk about circuit spirit because I think that's really progressive of you and I know you had one of those really locked in you're really dialed stoked on it. The kinda pull the carpet from underneath you. But you're still put on these events. What is the spirit of circuits period? Yeah spirit me into my friend. Jesse Vargas not easy. We all grew up driving together like fresh out of high school. Just got our cars and we're kind of just like rolling along with With the you know. The evolution of the sport grassroot style of it and competing I didn't I never really made that. Many competitions always racing but they always eat it and then like I don't know sometime down the road like Oh. Why are we setting our cars up to compete when we're like that's not really what we want to do? We just love going to the track the draft. So we really wanted to bring back that like core grassroots tolerate era driving and I Dunno I felt like a lot of the platforms out here. Like just a few dozen amazing job. They were starting to kind of catered towards the competition. And we're like well. Let'S WE WANNA give platform for guys. That don't know how to drive. That one is like. Don't WanNA drive on the streets but WANNA platform to drift on so we fortunate enough to have a contact at a local airport where I grew up. And they're abandoned. Runway was Kinda where we hosted our first four or five and it was a good time like everyone loved it. Everyone came out and how to an amazing time unfortunately say kind of stepped in and shut us down but we still host events. We'll go to willow spring just trying to switch things up. And and a Lotta Times. Drivers don't know the first of drifting you know. They don't know how their car react. They don't know how to initiate or whatever so either often with them or they want us to drive their cars. They get a feel for a drug a little more experience. We can help and kind of get some more guys sliding consistently other mango. We don't we don't ever want to like have a competition you know. We just like the style of things like the grassroots and of course like we we love watching you know the Madan but It's not realistic for me to shoot for that. You know I spoke with on my back and I want uh kind of other divers to get. I think that's perfect. Just given the climate of you know whatever he's kind of going through right now and you know you don't just have fun. Somebody brought something up to me the other day and this is prior to our quarantine. Everything kind of man you know basic materialistic stuff it puts into perspective. How much you or how much how little you actually need. But twenty twenty feels like nobody has hobbies anymore man everything you WanNa monetize everything so to do something and again watching your youtube videos. Which is a great series if you're a two wheel and you even talked about it. So all the four guys go watch. What Cole is doing? Because you're like I really don't want to cover too much the circuit spirit because you guys aren't really into that a lot of my followers to wheel but I I beg to differ. Because I think you you're good you know sound box. You're good speaker. A platform to show people what drifting is because it takes a lot of talent as you know you know and and going against two wheels in the dirt and the track and then drivers going against their vehicle and just having fun with their friends and understanding the dynamics of a car. It's pretty important. Yeah for sure I think now more than than ever with guys like talking about I am in Florida and even guys around here. It's like they kind of learned the same way I did. It's like Oh you know I need a roll cage and I need the you know my car and it's like you just go drive. Save Your Money. All you need is like three hundred power or good angle and wealth at the time your life and I know no professional love it. You know if I can do it I would but it. It's so much more fun as a grassroots guy. Just to go out and get any time. Who knows? Maybe that'll lead into something but Yeah I got sick and tired of throwing money in my car wasn't really needed and sure in the interior Like built it would as much yours I keep in think to me. I think more like st doubt. Oh for sure so who who's vehicle? I mean if you're an Esotique guy you have to love for us right. I mean if you're kind of that route I mean forces kind of the style kind of guy who what other drivers or even drift drivers across the globe. Who Do you? Who Do you like driving wise because I guess it kind of parallels supercross because there are some style to the racing attributes as well? Yeah Yeah I mean I love his driving style. Big Angle you know in cars are always set up so sick James Dean's obviously pretty flawless back in the day. I love the The SOUBRA Drove chocking which now what's now pilot. Yeah yeah that that was like him. Go out the window like later got remember that being like Holy Shit together other in throwing. I mean I'll just still a great driver. Obviously but that super was my powers can grow up like friends with him so he was always like drifting into my favorite guys watched is but I I like the Japanese style. A lot like the simple act thirteen you know on just like throwing big angle huge trained definitely like the core foundation of of what? I love about your thing. That's sick and just the diversity of it all in just in just having some fun did you see Oz Bose brand new super bean debuted brand new rockstar energy drink. Gr Super I just saw Turks the the gun I haven't seen the in. It's it's out renderings or out it's under construction. They're using the only Toyota supra engine. Papadakis has been doing the whole bill. You gotTA check that out when we when we go off. Line all right. -nother -nother motor sport thing. I see you're wearing the the bar and the shield there you and your boy Lance Corey thrashing supply coast. You're you're riding the twins as well quite a bit now. Yeah a lot I I've been fortunate enough to kind of relationship with Harvey is which was kind of different because I was gonna for Hefner's now so But on the racing side they don't really value the you know the brand new ambassadors side of things I guess though hardly Kind of building a relationship with the guys. They got some pretty cool stuff playing with those guys which hopefully isn't halfway because of this whole virus but You know a safety first for sure. Everyone is definitely important. Any going on. But Yeah Hopefully we'll be able to announce something those guys and then we cool. I love it. It's just like drifting can be like you buy like an old like I have a ninety three FSR that engine swaps and I'm adding these custom park honestly reminds me of a European building like an old to forty. You know nothing fits right now that got bought by an and and it is like the core is the same kind of It has like authenticity kind of old school. Feel but you know you're it's just like the S. Chassar Japanese. You know the Harley v twin the effects are specifically that's such California Bro like coastal style Speaking speaking of the Harley. Broe thing I saw you and rusty butcher riding out there and you guys are doing a lot again. I love the catalog of engines. That you're writing and I think this this lends well into us up. I'm not retired. I'm just a former supercross racer and this feeds into everything that you can't do because if you look at it from a professional standpoint and you know we have mutual friend McGrath and we have you know a couple of other people you know even Ricky Johnson and stuff like that right and F one and Super Cross have some parallels where you are limited at what you can actually do one time but to exposure to injury exposure to potentially hurting yourself and you have a lot of people riding on your shoulders. If it's you know the crew the pit the team the sponsors all that stuff. This now gives you the ability to really do what you do so. I love the one twenty-five the bills. I mean 'cause you gain a lot of notoriety right out of the gate. Doing some of these awesome builds. Why why why is that? You know like again. These youtube video builds. Yeah Yeah so one. The Honda released their which is basically a regular for fifty with a six year. Legal out of the box like feels like riding her bike on the street one introduced out. I was like I gotta get my hands on. I gotTA build on. Nobody's done it yet. So I wanna be the first kind of thing and once I did that. So many people fell in love with that building had so many questions. When I retired I was like this is what I WANNA do now like. I want to wait when you when you formerly race said retired. See I'm going to call you out on. Hung up your official Jersey. Yeah so I started building two fifty for the two stroke for For sure you're with them and the reason I WANNA do. This too is because a lot of people don't have access to what I have to you. Know like suspension companies that. I work with or engine companies. Are you know certain parts that I can obtain a lot like the everyday people? Can't and I if I you know if I can if they can live vicariously through me. That's awesome know like. I'm not bragging that I can get these part but I want to show you know what they can do and I it can be the Bill Martin and even like with the one at any special parcel at all I did was power. Co. Up and stuff and People were even on the. I have a couple things that I'm working on right now to try and More of like a daily writer type of bike or something like that so that people can relate to eat there and try to use parts that are more accountable for every every day and Yeah I think I think people really liked relating to that and you know it's when I'm injured. Alright ever didn't watch you like. Oh Yeah I'm into this. I would do that some day. It's almost like reminds me of back in the day like flipping through auto trader. Like like personally that much. I could probably by that you know. It's like the same thing with relatable doing and and Just to see the different things that people talk with you on that. It's almost. It's almost like it's almost like bring a now for car guys. It's dude loved. I wish I had a little bit of money and go buy that thing. It's funny because we were watching some of your videos and I wanted to catch up the other day and see. See what you've been working on and I just let him play through and again watch the street rhythm to questions and I always use my wife's like man. You need to stop asking questions. How did you how do you know how did you get? Travis? Scott Music to go through on licensing and not get pulled didn't I didn't I use the non-poppy written music all my dog and then it's like okay. I want this is like my videos. I want them to go huge. You know I don't care about making money off of the videos not about that for me. I want the reach. You know. I'm like screw it. I'll use post Malone and my team just because it's a sick video I'm paying a video. Refer out and Joan like shake footage. I want the music be equally as good so I don't really care about that like I get the copy written things whatever it just means. I don't make money on it. You know but I thought about that about creating the best video. I can totally yes. Yeah on talking like yeah we. We filmed the documentary. I don't want the music to suck. Yeah I know and I worked in to like your boy. Kind of getting all hyped and like it was. It was good and I was like. How is he getting this like? I don't even get it. I know you're opposed fan. I was listening to post Malone. Actually I'm a record player before before before you called and I was impressed with that. I don't I don't think you're paying travis. Scott what he would probably want you is and then so again watching those videos let them roll through if you're a two wheel guy or if you have aspirations of writing the video that played on and on. I was like okay. It was like white noise for a moment but you and Vicky golden in twitch rolling through and doing some trails that was I mean. It was really cool. Just it was just first-person and you. Who Was it that crash? Somebody crashed but it was like Myra River it was it was. It was cool man some local out there. He's sending it like whenever we were a group like that much talent. Twig me and Dicky and like a couple of really good names out there you guys and build the jumps out there in On their bikes. We get like we'll follow around a pretty big group and then we'll get outta latch onto that was just one of their third. You would just send it like every jump. We went as you would just cry every time but just kept getting up and going. That was a that was a fun that we have some really good jumps out here and like many carbone who likes spend hours out there. Digging trump's he's like a legend in the hill so huge shot all those. I'll show I would love to dig thirty there so I can't do my part shovel jump on smuggle and just Hats off to the local that then. Yeah then that's a whole that's a whole different type of rioting right. I mean what what you did and how I mean. Did you grow up riding kind of the mountains over there? And where was that exactly that one Vicki golden twitch ride out like just you just eat some Orange County in the hills out there I don't really know what the area's called but yeah I never really did that kind of riding because like you said you gotTa keep an eye out for injuries. And then they went professional. You know honestly it's like we raised thirty year. Seventeen supercross rounds twelve races and then Monster Cup and then also on top of that. We'll do overseas. Which has been like through three rounds? So it's like so much riding and racing during the year the last thing I wanNA do when I go on vacation or in my rating on a dirt bike. You know I'm not screw. There's like I don't even WANNA look at a dirt bike Kinda sucks but Yeah I never really had the patch earn not have the drive to go ride when I had free time. You know like I wouldn't want to but not when I step away and I was like you know on the couch for a few months and I'm like I like you know I kinda like a ride and I realized how much she wanted to go the track and new structure. You need to go do however many lots of want. Olaf whenever I want not have to train like actually really love riding you know like I I been on track and over almost a year now but Yeah I fall in love with being on a bike which is cool. That's great and that. That's you answered my next question but in regards to growing up and being as young as you are and in different climate you know. I'm I'm ten ten years. Plus your senior didn't grow up onto two wheels but grew up on a supercross in San Diego. You're going up and having Internet at a younger age or in your in your scope. Who did you admire back in the day on two wheels being a nineties kid it was hard not to be a huge McGrath. You know I think and also being background like I grew up. He was always my hero growing up and having a window. Which is why I wanted fourteen. So that is my my career number Probably my biggest influence growing auto rod style. You know like it wasn't always about rosty me. It was like I really like guys. Cool sow and and and talking about kind of who you admired. Un A what is it? L? Hombre you guys kind of squash on things you guys always had you guys had and I love. I love how came about you and Jason Anderson had this beef on track and there was one day where everybody saw was that you liking something on instagram. Or He likes something on yours and then it was just like it's all good. It's water under the bridge. We we followed each other with everyone about why would i? I think like fourteen was our worst year like we were. We're I was going for a championship winning the church. I was five hundred thousand from him all year. We hated each other. And we're figure similar. You know pretty common for some people did not like each other And then I think two thousand fifteen. I got better of him. I was like rookie of the year when we moved off. And Kill Them in points and all this other stuff and then my sixteen was when we're well again and we went out at like Razi as not not by that was like our worst year. Yeah butthead and take each other out and it was just insane so yeah well after that we we squashed it you know. I saw later in the year thinking. Look we're both GONNA be out each other's neck for entire careers like can be a little bit more. You know like we might as well tolerate each other. And then I kinda and then it slowly. Kinda grew into a little bit of friendship. I always like the Europeans. Do it right like they race each other every week and they they like Party together but they're keeping together and stuff because they they're a whole weekend. Do it right where I always tried to make friends with my competitive but American. We're so like they have sort of big over here with the reasoning. And it's like I don't know I don't WanNa drop nine you. We have to draw names names. Who's WHO's a hater. It's just like we're GONNA hang out every weekend. Might as well get along and at least they had to each other. But I don't know I don't like that yeah. Some people can't cohabitate but I mean did again you kind of want to find some dirt here but you look at f. one it's like Niko Ann Lewis Hamilton. They're fighting for the championship. And then how how you know when it comes to Formula One default Formula One at all yeah but Nico and in Louis going for. And they're battling for it but they were teammates. Have you ever had a teammate? Where he just could not could not handle that person again. You don't have to call it names but it. It has to be painfully obvious right. Yeah Yeah I mean I always try to get along with especially my humid There are guys they come around. And you're like yeah like what like you know why you gotta be like that. I can't like I say tracing ARD was like the best team ever had the coolest on and off the track. We always got along no matter who is doing better. We always like we practiced together. We shared each other lines. And we wash each other's footage and trying to better each other and it definitely you definitely see it. I think the one year he may we got combined like four wins the other so it was. It was really cool but some guys. You're like man like just put an aside for a minute like you know we're gonNA be together for all year. You might as well be cool. Bits be cool. Just chill. Just chill out. We're GONNA cohabitate we're going to get through this Bouncing around here. What are you listening to you right now? Like something you we get off this call. You're going to jump in your S. fifteen idealistically Orion off into the sunset. I know you can't drive. It's not street legal but you take your take your sprinter van with your bike in the back. What thirty or thirty two again. The I asked you for your what. What a weird flex. Okay Guy. So you pop in your thirty two with a tape player with your adapter. What's what's the first song you you play. Or what's what's top list right now if you pulled up your whatever. Utilizing spotify can do a lot of old old country right now like Johnny out. I women South Always I always Kinda like bounce back to that you know not A. I'm not a huge fan of hip hop. I listen to it every now and then but I always go back either. That or like highwaymen sell Music where timeless can listen to that anytime and put me in my gods. That's good road trip music right. I mean you just cleaned the car and Chris Christopherson and who was at Kris Kristofferson Johnny Cash Willie Nelson and who else Berle Haggard. Damn it. Sorry you're right. Merle Haggard Waylon Jennings is actually buried here in Arizona so if you WANNA see his His graveside I know where it's at so talking about road trips. What was the most memorable trip in your mind that That you can recall like destination wise anything. What was the cool destination? You've traveled to For sure I knew I knew you were GONNA say that. I literally new. You're going to say yeah. I mean that was like it was cool because we were there for a think it was nine days. It wasn't just like flying raising fly home. We flew in and got to go for the whole onto factory and where they go by where they talking cars. I got to see like an attack before I'd made it over to the state and especially it was really cool and then just like these guidelines on the road everywhere it was like in parts of the country so that was that was my favorite for sure man. They I think my culture I like like actually seeing first hand like some like going up bras like all these cool places and I've you know grew up like in high school like thinking on. I'll never get to go there and all the stuff they're paid for by. Honda like like getting there like for a job. Basically and and getting this was really glad I wanna go back like really really about go back Again I thought that was kind of that was a setup. Just lobby it up and just go I mean you were. You know you're riding for Honda. Conic Japanese manufacturers of all time the Honda Wing. You gotta put Honda Wing on the side of no. But you're not driving hunt as I dunno whatever you do have your sex though. Another weird flex. Oh you got rid of that one anymore. I got rid of that I had it for like a year but I love that car with Super Fun. The only thing is like I love like a lot of you guys. I love to modify allegra put wheels and clothes and narrow and on that car. You're like well. I'M NOT GONNA do anything to this car. You know you leave it saugus drivers to go back but I I get more. I get more enjoyment. I take him out and like just cruising on the coast or whatever just feeling. Yeah I know. I know you're BMW your electric. Who was I knew? I had to sell that immediately because I had no engine noise. Ed killed you right like being a being a two stroke four stroke a SR guy. Here's a car that makes noise. Yeah not I mean not to really cool cars and sometimes I look back manage their captain for a little longer. Yeah I got I get. I get more enjoyment of modern cars and I don't know three to honestly I live in Orange County right now. Crews do down like that. I wouldn't my like people like what is that. I've never seen that. Why are you on the right side of the car but I gotTa stop you there because you're getting all the looks from dudes it's all dudes that are like Hebrew? What is that and some Old Lady? What kind of car is on? So you you get the gamut you get young kids. That are super rice doubt fans of Atom Z and TJ. Hot Tanner Fox. And then you get the old ladies like Zetter Nissan Sentra. So you gotta you gotta you gotTA SPLIT The difference. Maybe are thirty four. If you've got an art thirty four then it's like all right girls got to know what's up and all that Talking about your travels and all that where would you like to go? You said you'd like to go back to Japan but this is just believe that roadrunners such as you are and I am in a lot of a lot of people out there. You're you're living your life and I hate that. I hate the saying living the dream but I think that you have aspirations of doing more. Is there something on your bucket list of place? You'd like to go that kind of feeds into either two wheel four wheel all of it. Any all where. Yeah I mean. I'd love to go back to Japan. That'd be number one on the list for sure I'd like to go to Japan for more of a drifting trip you know go. They run a car by go to go to. Ebisu and talk to Andrew Gray. Have you talked to Andy Gray at all like making the whole trip and do ask Andy or now? I don't know But Yeah I'd love to go back over there or I'd love to go to Germany. You know check out some of the end of your porch stuff or go to nerve basically anywhere that I go are related. highlight for or motorcycles and motorcycle racing On the other side. I WANNA do soccer cars now. No I think that makes sense. And it's cool. How like again. How much of a four wheel nut you are? I mean you kind of touched on it briefly. There you love kind of do you miss the track. You haven't been on a track in a while but do you feel like you have this new found love four two wheels since you. Since you're not professional supercross circuit. Yeah definitely I mean I don't have any want to really get back on track really like Kinda. It just feels like a job to me. Every time I talk for fifteen minutes and I'm one of those fifty match up. I knew I had a hell of a dad. I mean you know it was just like I'm GONNA put my body through the ringer all day long today and that was for the it doesn't. It's not it'll come back where I WANNA go and cruise around with my friends for sure but Going taking trips to Pismo or I I've done I'd like four trips to Glenn Glenn like two months which is really cool awesome content out of that and like three trips and then truly hitting. Hey we need to go back. We've done a video like cool. I love that sparked like the fun and writing. You know where before it started to feel like a job which I hated and then I don't know like I did some commentating this year. For like the actual show supercar and being on the floor like going to Anaheim wanted being on the floor like I was like man. I gotta get there and Miss It. You know like if anything on the floor around all my former competitors dot like GonNa make me Miss It. The most really didn't feel that way. I got down there and I was like yeah. That jumped looks fun. But I don't WanNa you know. Send it through lockers to try and get find condition. That is the last thing I don't want to do right now so I definitely like confirmed in my mind. I made the right choice for myself. You know like sure. I could have gone another couple of years and race and probably not done as well as I've done in the past year but I hated that I went through that whole last year where I was like. I'm doing his best again and I'm really not not not only up. I can even get a top five and feeling so definitely like it confirmed definitely made the right decision and and in the in the scene and and in the sport has come to an end. I guess as far as racing goes. Yeah it gives me anxiety just about that being online and I'm just an announcer Some cool content that I saw actually come out of your feet and another popular youtube or instagram. Or David Dobruna Tesla X. jumping over a hip. Like what was what was that. It was super actually address. Track when I got that call. One of my good friends is in the new who who drove the car. A hey can you be in Hollywood tomorrow morning at nine? I'm like Yeah and you are right here L. There and I was like okay and I got there and it's like it's a pretty famous junk that he was in the bathroom periods movie jumping on him. It looks familiar. Yes so I had guys jumping on mode on and really gone that big l like they like I was like Oh why do they like I like? I knew I could go pretty far. But there's some trees right above that you kinda gotta stay below so I was like. I'm going to get as close as I can. I jumped it and I was like. Oh Shit I was actually a hand up in the trees but pretty much. When it's time for you can go on the thing. The whole premise was like to show how big it was so that they could jump. Tesla and right. When they're about to do it was like I don't WanNa do it and my friend Josh. He's holding that. I'm GonNa do it like we can't hear a film that I'm GonNa do it and I was like here. You Want my helmet. And he's like in with me and like you want my helmet. He's like come on. I got in and he hauling ass and I'm like dude slowdown like don't it that bad like we don't know how far jump in barely case it and then we hit a little one blue? I got come pretty far. And Nosediving Tesla but a little scared. Yeah that looks it looks gnarly in like I'm like Oh dude you're like damn demoing. This tesla acts. And you're like Oh cool. Whatever another another kind of shift taking a left hand. Turn your boy Mikey. Oh Hayden is. Bleach design works. He's building these bikes for Niagara Houston and Bieber and like what what is bleached design works. Because you kind of see this overlap of this cool little like Orange County set between you Mikey and even your brother on kind of different people. What is bleach. Yes so he? He started off building his own bike. customizing like a flat track style. Buy It was more for looks than it was for You know performance. But he's kind of a shorter guy so he wanted to be low like big wheels and look sick so he did that and then neither were all kind of buddies. Niger wanted him to build a bike. And then when I got the L. Like I said I had this whole idea of like building it wallows racing and then I was like taking a supercross tracking a bike. Talk like dude. I want to build this bike and I wanNA take it like Video Ryan supercross track which is on my youtube channel. He called Gray area. Anybody who has a pretty rapid action we do with that was Kinda like in the background like wall. We're doing that kind of building. A bleach and Like building the I for me and I definitely like you know skyrocketed his his. You know like the ODORATA. Yeah like a beaver beaver saw NASA's by and then be on a bike. So it cool. It's cool to see And hello my best friend. Ran like that grow And you can and and also. He helped me a lot to like. I had like. I'm raising this weekend. I'm going to Florida for that five weeks and you get this done for me so I just get done any kind of build together and then also with a stray or the Mike. You helped me a lot with. That is so cool Cool to he so before he started this whole thing. We got into the industry because of me. 'cause even like my right hand man for a little bit so he built these connection. You know like it wasn't my one hundred percent doing but you know he's just a very like guys so you make all these relationships with with people in the industry be just really like had to pass with like kind of like you build show bikes. You know you don't want for Benson and Ya Just because it's more of like a like all these people think they can like shortcut all these bikes that those like cut no corners. Put the best part on the back. Polishing and and Dining park voting stuff. Definitely very like you know. He's the kind of bikes. The function is the fashion. The fashion is important as well so aesthetically. They look eye pleasing with the kind of stark graphics. Kind of it's almost mid century modern looking more of like a Herman Miller piece but then it can actually function as well so again. I I remember reaching out to you and saying Oh dude. I love these. These bleach bikes. New You're kind of involved somehow and then Mikey and I've seen him shadow. You around like you say kind of building up his own notoriety. Another thing that you've built which I think is kind of cool. I think lot of us are fueled by it as coffee. Him Bump Start Coffee. This is a new venture for you and I think that's Pretty Rad. Yeah Kinda Belen in my lap Too Bad through industry were like hey like everyone's doing energy drinks stuff. Like what do you think about joining forces and building a a brand Been Kinda like scary for me. You know like Do I need to be chasing that you know not branding of getting a rockstar monster or something like that? You know 'cause I tend to get that kind of stuff you know. I am pretty relevant before but I was like. I don't really nobody really drink every time you see somebody drinking usually water so how coffee multiple times every day. You know something. I've been passionate. I WANNA do for years. They just haven't had the time or the right people to partner up with and Luckily partnering up with with two my friends like I said and and a Lotta backing stuff and the call majority of the shots. So it doesn't cool partnership that we have and it really like gone a lot of traction surprisingly like right away which has been only been active for a week and it's been crazy like the response. I'm getting from people and people really loving the coffee. Which is the most important part like wanted? Coffee Make Coffee. We tested beans and try different. You know roasts and all that stuff and Kenilworth. Our favorite though people actually enjoying the taste. And you know the feeling the from drinking it is definitely you know more. Let's run. Let's run through some names that you've raised with the two wheel world and just give me some some responses so and Just short sweet Gerry. Mcgrath on it just like grass long time as far as style and supercross and just the way you How about Ricky Johnson as like rentable like? Oh my God you know like the I duNno I dunno guy the rebellious against the not the sport but I think the the cookie cutter style of racing. You Know He. He's his own person. He definitely GonNa show you Ricky Carmichael You I got fricking insane like I really like. I'm too young to realize how much about he was Like I started racing and realizing like this guy only law twenty five races outdoors in the however many years like I Never WanNa right outdoors and he only twenty five in poker. You're never locked now nor champion. Judge just like you really don't realize how in her from him and he's such an approachable guy. Like I thought. We spent a whole weekend together in Italy when I was going. Raise their and he was just like it was it was so cool as they can. And just how different things were back then when he was racing and it was for the win when he when he talked about Twits shifting gears here from the track down to the big kickers but Jeremy Twitch Stenberg businessman I really. I think that would surprise some people right. Yeah it's surprised me. He's so smart like so smart when it comes to the Business Mike earning himself and and doing things the right way like he has an image like stone her and like you know kind of like not. I Dunno like free style like like. He's so smart. I spent some time with him rocker tired of the hose and never to go. Rodman and stuff and he's like seriously one of the smartest business guys were met. Yeah he's a he's a cool cat man and again of a proud father and husband and like you say you people's perception of him as kind of stone ary but you know dbq. I'm glad that he's kind of flying his own flag which is a testament to him. Just working hard We talked about earlier but Jason Anderson Rival still to this day. Right you got you gotTa Have Day makes you better. If even if you're not on the track your kind of like I love to hate the guy that all right I love you but yeah I shouldn't take most times years there but now all right How about I want to end it on a couple more here but What about Chad Reid? John Reid I mean. He's like Jeremy McGrath. Junior got like to the teeth style like this rat riding style and and just always had that never say die attitude you know every year like you're tired and I. I started racing the fifty racing to class while he was still reading for people who are still retiring later than me. I don't know how many years you've gone. But his gay drops and everything is insane. Like how how many lax. I guys on how I think he has more love for raising than any writer ever has are four. And then What about? Let's let's on this one Ryan Filipo Ryan. He's Yeah I'm actually done pretty close and he retired and now that I'm retired from racing so former supercross racer see you correct me? I'M GONNA see too from racing. Okay yeah he's he's he's a good dude Good family man just He has that like raw. Beat you know. He didn't have the best style but he was always hanging out. Always giving it like a hundred and twenty percent off the back. Fender always running wide lines. Smoothest line but guys like an. I don't WanNA kindergarten. Yeah he's he's definitely talented and Kinda just went off and did his thing and Ended on a on a great no perfect. What's what's your ideal car. Set up right now. You said you've got an thirty two. You got this S. Fifteen. Is there any ideal car chassis? Engine setup I wanna say I WANNA SAY STREETCAR. You could have any car the legal.

Fc Arek seven with a coyote engine with a Ford. Big like big engine. Just make it street legal but also have like an angle kid on it so you could take it to the track but have it be street. Swag you know I'd like to. I think I'm GonNa do I WANNA do. Abilities are theory too. I WANNA build it because I do. I really want a street. Abol drink car thing.

So I'm GonNa do it as well but no. I've actually busier than ever. This is terrible. We have to invent content instead of just going to a race and interviewing writers when it's done it's a lot harder now. Yeah it does out a little bit of challenge to things for sure Yeah it's it's different no doubt we. You're the one with the wife and the two kids and you're all in this house. How's things going? Yeah I was just talking to our own Erin Hansel about this if I was on quarantine with just my wife would have been awesome. That'd be great. I mean superfund. Instead were quarantined and home schooling. And I'm trying to work I. It's virtually impossible in this terrible so you're looking to trade for toilet paper. We'll give up to kid I until the paper I would trade it. I'll take the paper over the kids that that would make my life better for both mousy. Jt's alone so he's an or we're in three different situations meaning wife kids. Jt You're alone so we're all in different situations here the big problem that you don't like yourself it's it's hell over here. Yeah oh I hope Phil isn't alone now. Still has a special someone in his life. I think he's fine. Okay I do not want to be alone. So do we think Carol Baskin killed her husband where we at that like I was Kinda like Nah? He seems sketchy Costa Rica. He seems sketchy but someone who knew that he was never coming back. Drove that van to the To the airport where apparently none of the planes could reach Costa Rica and left the van there and the cops bungled that. I think he did it. Jt Oh yeah. She was She didn't like him. I think that was pretty clear like she was not happy. I think he'd Kinda gone off the deep end and she said he had crashed his plane a few times. Which that's neither here nor there but Yeah I I you never know. Though how these things are edited. You know they can. They can share a show to make you believe anything. Yeah it certainly seems that way on the surface we each carol baskin murderer or not. She seemed to have the will the money all figured out. Yeah I'M GONNA have this figured out well in advance. Exactly how it would go down for her to inherit all his money if he were to die or or they were the parents. Yeah that was the key superior food disappear right like so great. I don't think Netflix I mean they were they shooting for five years. This documentary. Did they know that it would launch at the exact time that the entire world looking to hear about something something to take us away from the actual news? It could not have been time better. If you don't know what we're talking about it's on net flicks is called Tiger King. It's seven part documentary and I have so many questions. I have so many questions and at some point I felt sorry for Carol. I felt sorry for Joe Exotic. I felt sorry for his husband's my my empathy switched from who I thought was the the greasy EST every single episode. Which is the sign of a good documentary? Jt Yeah I mean when you're talking about the Netflix part. Though this has been the greatest thing that's ever happened to them right when everyone is locked into their homes in there's no sports on TV and there's not a lot of live content you have arguably their greatest hit ever launch at the same time. There may be an investigation into the origins of the corona virus directly attributed to network. Because it's great to see small businesses like Netflix and Amazon. Really it's great to see these businesses need help. Get the boost right so hey so without getting too much into tagger. Can't biggest thing that I took. Biggest SURPRISE. Moment was Joe exotic flipping on an ems jacket when the girl got her arm bitten off and just right away like where did he come up with that? Where did he run with that? He wasn't wearing that when she was apparently found so he took the time to throw. Ems Jacket on the fact that they'd never had an incident in twenty years but he kept that jacket handy from the day that it might happen or flipping into the wedding the details into the priests outfit for the wedding right. I Won't funeral the funeral. Travel yes yeah through how to priests uniform ready to go. I think for me Jc I would assume he's got a little bit of everything I'm GW farm there My big surprise was his game that he has. It is incredible. How well he can pull dude. I mean I I can I say good looking dudes half his age. Yeah I don't know how he's able to do it. Then that's the new one was right away four weeks or six weeks. Whatever yeah right right away. No problem guys probably twenty. And he's like sixty third of his age very impressive. Yeah well I think the most unbelievable. They're this everything you could top or something else but my biggest takeaway of this entire show was then just what you're talking about his ability to lure in these These men and their you know eighteen to twenty two age range. These men were not gay. So could you imagine meeting something so bad? And I think he's GonNa be approaching this on solo paper. Yeah you would need you. Don't think so bad you have sex with someone of the same gender view although that wasn't your preferred partner like I don't even know how that's possible need something so bad. It was crystal Meth in this situation. We learned but rebounded. I couldn't believe that segment I watched it over and over. 'cause I was just trying to put myself in a place where I needed something that badly. I'll let you know in the toilet. Paper runs down because they could be that I could be there right now. Check it out. Everybody please Check it out. A net flicks the virtual supercross race that racer x online ran our Guy Cal. Him and his army seemed to be happy with that I lot of questions about that. You're not doing it the way I want to do it. But how? How was that experience? Well I did it for one reason. And one reason only Yes we have calabro around board now. the foremost name in Moto gaming I don't know if he wears that title proudly or not But it's just it is what it is is there. Is there journalistic facts? So I knew once. Nascar had their own Race which aired on Fox sports over the weekend that everyone's GonNa say hey great idea. Why don't you do that for Moto? But we'd already discussed this and we already knew it wouldn't work. Because here's the difference. Car Racers actually used simulators all day. Every day as practice and training they. You can't go out and test the race car. You know Monday Tuesday Wednesday like you can ride supercross bike. That guy's in our sports do so all they did was literally. Just turn on some cameras in each guy's house and then they just did what they do all the time. So yeah they had the actual Dale earnhardt junior and the actual Denny Hamlin actually racing in this virtual ray so I knew that it was going to say. Why don't you do that with Moto? Do you think Ken Robinson. Tomac had any video game skills at all. No I mean you're probably not right so it doesn't apply but I knew we're GonNa get it day after day so I I just wanted to get everybody off my back. I've thought about it. I'm aware that exist. I've talked to car drivers about these simulators they are. They told me about ninety seven percent accurate to what it's really like to race. We can't re yeah. This is amazing. What they've told me they feel the only part that these simulators have been a nail yet and there are computer programmers. Trying to figure this out. They can't quite get the feel of the sidewall of the car to be quite what it feels like a real race car. That's IT WOW. Philly missing So anyway we don't have that option but we do our best. Yeah Kellyn played. The game sent me. The file of the game being played which would be the Detroit supercross on the Monster Energy super-cross video game part three and then announced it. So yeah people really seem to like it. We can get away with anything next couple of weeks so I'm not I'm GonNa be full transparency here. I didn't make it to the end but did fly. Racing's Vince freeze win. The main second second things blake bagging. Get the win okay because Vince Vaughn Vince luck. I had a good lead passing Rockin late in the in the wolves. Jt That's when you think events passing on. The supercross sounds sounds pretty realistic. Yeah I thought. It was pretty neat. That's pretty cool and you did a good job of it. So there's content forty people there you go. I mean then killing hosted a alive of this simulator game last night on the Seattle track live last night. And that's he's been doing that for a while but yeah we- Racer X is on board. We've got to be now. Honestly I mean look some people may just laugh and say oh. It's stupid video games. Hey look people. It's something we're all trying to find something here. We're all in the same condition. We're all in the same boat so open up your mind and and embrace it a little bit and laugh at it or try to do what you can to stay busy and stay entertained right. I mean that's kind of what we're trying to do here. I don't feel that many people have been bagging on it. Okay good normal season yes they would but I feel like for the most part. Everybody's feeling. Yeah okay good. Good good to hear so qualify racing racer x podcast presented by Wrentham maxis and alias. Cbd Of course all on board with US seventy five eight six seven eight five seven we. The lines are full. I'll get to you people in a second. Let's quickly turn into the sport a little bit more serious matters than Joe Exotic. It's seems like Oh by the way taking your calls holding the down over there coming in on a on a day off. It's Travis Marks. What'S UP Mark? How're you isn't every day a day off for me right now? Yeah Yeah I guess but thanks. Mark Life is just one big break. Thank you stakes. We need to get marks and Kellyn together. I WANNA build this. I want to get this video game thing. Going to really make the strengths and weaknesses of these of the riders realistic and then we run a complete sim series. Boom don't possess those kinds of skills that you know okay. Sorry eleven out of ten in whoops. Okay okay all right so I guess. Jt will start with you. It seems like there's been some calls with fouled on the teams Feld as You know obviously they. They cancelled Salt Lake in Vegas which led to a whole round of of hysteria. Among people on social media. It was only a formality. I mean it's strictly a formality coming. We've known we've talked about and we've written about and we've talked about the series being in the fall. Jt from the teams. I talked to that. Have been on. These calls. Felt seems determined to get seven races in and it seems that we're GonNa Start Mid-september with the guys. Yeah I think that's the plan We know that Paul you know kind of Fed and Jello as we say plans change and it's all moving targets but I do think it's important to try to set goals right and try to make plans moving forward and if we have to adjust those so be it I think it'll be kind of tough to adjust that stuff with venues but I think for our own good for our own psyche. As far as human forget about you know race fans or any of that just to have things to look forward to have some sort of optimism on the horizon. I think it's a good thing because if you've been following this pretty closely yeah. It's pretty bad and a lot of areas but I get the feeling that they are starting to wrap their heads around us and yeah. I'd say probably going to get worse before it gets better but I think scientists are learning a lot about timelines and timeframes So to have to think that we're going to get some sort of racing in the summer and fall. I don't think that's unrealistic. And maybe I'm way off and maybe maybe get this all you know. We're just dreaming that I'm going to happen. But it seems like impossible. Anyway we in the Sports Lucas. Oil Promoter Costs Championships. They've released their schedule. Hanging off of it Florida will be the first one. In mid June it looks like and from talking to people in exports who of course our sister company to racer x where this podcast is being hosted on everything from talking to 'em export they're able to move to reach. Those dates are set. But they change. I think what everybody has to understand for both series and by the way for any other racing series is that everybody wants to get the racism. Everybody does because you make money by holding races. You get sponsor money you get your exposure. Tv obviously the goal will be to sell tickets which for awhile. It sounded like events going without fans. Maybe we get to the point where that's not an issue So I don't care if you're necsports Feld or NASCAR or Indycar you do not want to not hold races so being flexible and trying to get him in late in the year is way better than just throwing in the towel. I was pretty surprised. One of the first things to go with the NC double A. March madness men's basketball tournament and they didn't try to delay it they just canceled it And that was crazy. Because then that money's just gone forever your whole season done but yeah everybody wants to rate so yes the June thirteen date. I think that made people feel better because at least it's something on the horizon to at least semi sort of plan. Obviously no one knows for certain that June is going to be fine but it's three months from when they announced it so that gives at least some running room But the goal is to get racism. And that's definitely the case supercross to you. You do not make money running races if he's not hold races so obviously people WanNa hold races. Eleven rounds in what fourteen weeks? It's a it's a hectic schedule we're all going to have to just bend and flex and get used to it but it's going to be drop the gate and go. Yeah and just remember there. There's a chance that not soon after that. You know maybe a week or so. In between or something Could be back to supercross. This is all fluid and up for grabs. It might not happen and it's tough because I know you know it'd be tempting to just say we'll treat right now like the off season but JT. Not like you've ever experienced this. But you know what? It's like the plan. Your trainees can draw. J. T. I would think it'd be hard to just semi sorta take a break now but not quite You and the normal you know when the off season is and you know exactly how to work during the season what do you think? Jt can people really can riders. Really do that. Can they. Just say Yeah April will be my down month. Is that what you do? Well I think it really depends on how certain we are that. It's GonNa Start when they say it's GonNa Start and I know everyone's guessing you know they're as smart as you know the the pro motocross crew is. They're at the mercy of a lot of things out of Control Right State Law Shelter in place. All these things are going to be determined by local government is what it's looking like. So that's the biggest challenge of the writer as a trainer is the uncertainty If you could come out and say with one hundred percents certainty we can tell you that. We're going racing at Paula on June thirteenth. Okay if that was the case it'd be pretty easy to build a program around that you know you know how much time it takes to get in shape. Most of the guys are already there right. They've been they've only been off for a week or two and they've been writing in the interim anyway so you kind of maintain right now. You switch everything over to your outdoor writing. And then you build a program that rams up to be ready on June thirteenth To me I coming back to it. I think that's just the biggest challenge is how right or wrong. Are they going to be because we could be facing a situation where yeah it's the late? May and it's not a lot better and then you've done all this work that really you know. Then you're going to have to push back even further. That would be a really tough challenges is dealing with that moving target. It'll be interesting to see if I was a writer or a team though that June thirteenth Florida. That's as soon as we're going to take on all that's the same thing right soon as we're going though don't even think about trying to squeeze in Vegas or or super like that's when we're going racing now. I think that's I think that's a certainty right so that helps a little bit but still still even then were guessing at it and now you're like okay you've been hanging in there and I listen to your Adam scenario podcast and you know he was still riding supercross and he was planning on getting back into the supercross game for the end of the series. Well that's all changed and without what's that been a week ten days right. Yeah Yeah So. All of that has changed and who knows where that'd be ten days from now that's really. The challenge is day by day. We're learning more and and making plans. Accordingly let's get to some phone calls here we go first up. It's Gus Gus. What's going on man? How are you guess? How are you good? What's happening not too much Atlanta this year. And I know you're saying that's the first year that she'd been to the Mercedes Benz Stadium so now that you've been there whereas What would you say is the Best Weiwei supercross? 'cause I'm in the eastern part of North Carolina so any super cross that I got to go away from me. Well you can't beat Anaheim won. I mean the stadiums not awesome. But it's an iconic stadium for supercars rising and everybody's ready and everybody's brand new and I mean it's tough to beat out. I'm on Gaza. What do you think we each? What which one would you say to travel to all right? We each jt. I already messed up on where you're coming from. He's on the East Coast. Yeah Okay so west coast one. Yeah I I I agree with that one just because I think say you're at that one one time Would be awesome I Steve's GonNa Puke when I say this I do feel like everyone can see Daytona International speedway once in their life. Boy That's considered flyway. I didn't know I mean I'm GonNa put that one in a nursing home yet or not so I was holding out. I know you think I'm GonNa Talk. Sure no no no I. I all the things that I don't like about data and it's all true and it's all fact it is cool to go there. It is cool to go there and see it. I've just I've seen it for twenty twenty-five years but at one time to see how huge and big the places. Yeah I way when you're on the east coast Yeah Vegas race was always cool. We don't know depending on the timing of Sam Boyd Stadium. We we might never get to raise their again. Yeah And it wasn't anything about the stadium. That was actually a difficult part of the race but the ATMOSPHERE IN VEGAS. They do a lot more with the PIT party than they do. Any other around And the East West shootout showdown always cool so I would recommend that too. That's probably the most obvious answers ever. What about you? J. T. we'll give some different than we've talked about well to me. It's all about the city you know because once the rookie starts it's it's similar. You Know Anaheim window little bit different just because the atmosphere but the rest of it is once. You're inside the stadium. You can't really tell us your at Oakland or Seattle or you know Ohana you know. They're they're all similar in that way. Same show basically so for me about the city. I thought Denver was really cool Just the downtown part of Denver's a really cool atmosphere is in April. And everyone's just kinda coming out a winner Seattle the weather's difficult but I think downtown Seattle is like a really cool place. You down to the work in check all that stuff out so for me. It's more about what's going on around the race in the actual date because once you involved in opening ceremonies are going to. You could be anywhere. I'M GONNA go us all right And one more thing if I met wage at Atlanta and he's a beauty. Oh what was his hair everywhere and he had a plaid shirt on. Yeah he was It was right before You guys did. The pitch show literally stage isn't bad either he he. It was rough. Yup thanks thank you all right. Thanks Jeff I was feeling great powered through though some videos I've ever seen in my life. Yeah Steve Think about how these things are frozen in time. Like era social distancing. Think of Friday night party before race seems like now Steve. What's going on man? How are you? I'm doing good? I now I'm come calling from the Albany New York area so they might have a little bit more pessimistic viewpoint than guys might about the future. Okay so especially the supercross aspect of it but with this four shutdown that we're in and you know not knowing what's going to happen as a result who might this break again with possibly no races in the future or at least a ways off. Who might this really have helped that within like a bad situation? You know like Jordan Smith for example. He was having a horrible year. Things Kinda hit pause. Now is if a lifeline for him. He's out for the year with an ACL. He just got exactly yeah. There's nothing to base it on. Is this a lifeline or as well as Brougham or I think Steve? You GotTa go on. The assumption is more racist. You're from New York and like you said pessimistic. So you're talking. Hey there's no more racist right by. I'd be doubtful for supercross. I really hope there's outdoor yeah see I'm not like we. Jt Like I. I would bet heavily that there's more supercross races. Jt either one of you right like are you with me on that. You're you can't really hope for supercross in and not hope for outdoors because they're playing going supercross racing after the outdoors And it's going to take a serious health crisis for several months and and maybe we see that. I'm talking another three or four months of just complete lockdown I think for us to NOCCO supercross rate me in some capacity. Yeah yeah I I just I but okay? You know who I think's Eve Justin Bogle. He hit his head a lot. He crashed in Glendale and was out for maybe the year. Benny boss remember filled in for him If we come back in June justin could be feeling great Back to normal obviously head injuries. You never really know. But there's a guy that could be greatly helped by this and whenever we go back race in. Bogle will be feeling much better and ready to go. Do you have somebody each one thing. That could really intriguing about this is if supercross comes back in September Marvin Moose. Can we'll be able to race. That was not supposed to happen under. You know any normal circumstances but for the first time in What forty seven years of Super Cross Is going to have a nice six month break? I mean the plan was from going to be ready for hang town in on the original town date right so should be able to race June thirteenth outdoors. And then if you raise enough. There's no reason it wouldn't raise supercross so not like loose. Skin needed the racist to get contractor or anything like that but from our end up racing. Half of the supercross rounds. We would have never expected that. So that'll be big for him. Anybody that we we missed. I was GONNA go Wacko WACKO Jacko Yup. It's in backing squarely in his. A Super Cross gain gain is to get off the track and then One guy that maybe he's not in the the battles a win anything but I think it gives Chad Rita chance to heal and if he wants to prepare this summer and come into that September off-season normal time really ready to go racing. Yeah anybody thinks you think that's really hurt. I think it's difficult with everything. That's going on myself. Steve for Tomac and rocks into ramp back up into this epoch. Ten Week Championship battle that they had when they gotta do eleven rounds outdoors. You know. I don't know we'll see but it's I think they'll hurts both of them as far as you know The levels that they had gotten to. I D- really improving. Would BE JUSTIN GRADING BECAUSE KEEP in mind that September October is normally goes on right? He's he's headed off to Australia and he knows exactly how to prepare. Throughout the summer should be ready to peak in September and October and they made a little bit of November as well but as these guys are already outdoors all summer long in the proposed schedule he would be hammering Donald supercross. He can really come in with the edge if they go straight into supercross like they're talking about. Yeah the motor concepts guys taken bikes back you know and selling them I think they would be on twenty one reason. Maybe you're seeing chat reads though is motorcycles as well all right. Thanks for the call. Steve Thank you. Thank you we One point I just WANNA throw it on Brighton. If supercross races in September October. Now he's going to be racing at the same time as Australia. So he's GonNa lose some money one way or another because he can't raise both at the same time and also what this this leads me my next question. We what happens the motocross? The nation's this year yeah. I think a lot of dates motocross the nation's Monster Energy Cup straight rhythm. I think a lot of those races that are not must do's for points and championships and stuff. I think a lot of those could go by the wayside because this is not unique to the United States right. Gp's have been pushing pushing pushing back. You're GONNA need every single date you can to try to get the suppose that number around in so maybe the the nation's Day just becomes A. Gp What are you GonNa do? I don't know how if they even have it. I do not think. Usa would send a team schedule now. And I don't know how. If you're if you're riders in contention you send them to the more concentrations you know I just. I can't see it happening. But maybe you know yeah. I think anything extra any of these extra races that are not part of a championship. The casualties of that jam-packed calender mercy Geneva Geneva actually Geneva Geneva host the massive Autoshow were a lot of the Europeans. They view new cars in that got canceled and they lost a ton of money so I heard that they might just not be doing anything extra. This year so Geneva might be a casualty Before a variety of reasons I don't know what the state of international travel in six months. Nope absolutely shad. What's going on but I had Two things about duck sides punishment and the other one about your tough block. Dark sides punishment. What do you think I'm thinking you and me we're talking about going to western you should feel Know what it's like to be a factory rider for a whole day in that. Have him be mechanic? Change Your Oil. Clean your air filter. Check your you know Tire pressure go out within the mechanic all day. Terrier goggles right now I wouldn't. I wouldn't trust mechanic skill so I wouldn't want to jump in there. But yeah one of the things lost in his. Co. Vlad nineteen thing is we never really got around to figuring out dark sides punishment for Mexico. And that's that's a real shame. That's a real shame. I doubt would be good ones. Do All your dirty day what did you say? I saw them recapping on Fox News this morning. One of the biggest tragedies all thank you thank you what else and then your tub blocks. I liked the idea. I was thinking like a four inch pan with a lip around it. burying it. Well then have the pants connected to each other With like islets or something a flat iron and then very that flat iron to hold them in and then have your locks belt prodian so that way if a hit him straight on they break loose and not cause havoc but if they come around a corner and just nicked them. They'll say where they are. Sounds Good Shadow? All these ideas are the tough blocks. Let's let's work on this downtime. Fix this tough block stuff. I got laid off all right now. Sorry Shot Buddy. Thank you appreciate it. Thank you yeah. Let's let's make tough blocks great again. I mean why not. Kyle's on four Kyle. What's going on. Thanks for calling a flyer racing. Racer X podcast. What's your question it's going good. I WanNa let you guys know. I'm sad I won't be seeing your beautiful faces at the Hawaii supercross. I was really looking forward to that. Thank you yes. It looks like that is definitely not going to happen now. So thank you were say. It looks like you made your way over here somehow so they did a good time before everything got locked down. Yeah exactly the resort. We've stayed at the hotel. We stayed at his on lockdown as of today disclosed. Let's it. Well they started harassing tourists a little bit on the island and online where there. Yeah it's gotten a little agro as a can't hear anyway. What else calling about. We've seen many pros where they have a leave of absence due to injury or they get to be able to hang out on the lake and and enjoy themselves and a Lotta Times. It's been a career. Change kind of lose makes them loser drive to win. Raise the that they are at. I was curious to see if you guys think that affect anybody and if so you know who do you think that would possibly be affected? Where the downtime? There's like they enjoy it more than racing. We think JT. I don't think so because that's pretty much September every year for them right now. They don't they don't do a lot in September. That's like their time. If you want to go to the lake if you WANNA relax inn go on vacation somewhere around the world. September's that time to them You know honestly. Most of these guys are so driven. It's really hard for them to just step away and then not want to be back out there. And I think all of us are going a little stir-crazy being insider houses and not able to go about our daily lives as normal So if anything I think when this thing gets cranked back up these guys are going to be more motivated than ever. Because they've been you know been forced to say at home and we've all been hearing that these guys are kind of shutting down the writing for a little bit as far as you know everyone's going they're saying it's there's such a strain on the the medical you know medical care system and all those things so I kinda go the other way when the thing rams backup everybody from racers to fans to industry everybody's GonNa be going to be really really enthusiastic and really ready to go. Yeah some people. Jt certainly WPF's fly racing. Your you've talked to some people that are experiencing some good sales some some act of people out there so it's been good. I mean we're definitely opened for business Which is a good thing you know. And women capacity as far as workforce people being at home. And all that but yeah. It's it's been a little bit of a transition. The first week was was really positive because people going out and writing more than ever The longer this goes on though people being you know if they do get laid off from work or whatever. I think that's GONNA slow down right isn't going to have a negative effect So let's hope this is a very temporary thing but I've certainly heard and talk to more people that have written their dirt bike. You know more in the last two weeks and maybe two years before that the bicycle shop I went to was slammed. They said everybody's bring bicycles in everybody's got got time to go ride them there. Are I take mine? Yeah my bicycle got dialed end just because I had time. What about your mysterious street bike? How's that doing? I've been writing but it's cold. It was twenty five degrees here this morning. So I mean there are some positives here. There are some some sunlight here in the situation. Yeah there is the moment we've heard the same thing over in the race. Exide COUPLE OF COMPANIES. Saying you know if you're not like me and you don't have to home school your kids and you actually are home more than usual Fixing up that project like in the garage. This is the best time you'll ever have to do it. So I have heard some companies saying more parts are being ordered than ever but I don't WanNa look too closely at that because as jt. That will eventually stop. You know. We're all kind of in coast mode right now but if this were to go on for three straight months I think everyone would be afraid to spend any kind of money on anything at all That that's going to go away and already the writing thing I feel like in the last week or two has shifted from. This is the golden opportunity to ride or now. It's like fifty fifty. I don't know if that's what I'm supposed to be doing. Is that bad if end up going to the hospital or is that not really what they mean by social distancing? I feel like that's already changed in seven to ten days so in a couple of months man too bad habit but I don't think we can read too much into it. We this is your time to shine with spending money. This is your time to shine. It's the rainy days. He says all right. Look it's just a matter of perspective for all of us right like it's not gonNa be the ideal year that we all thought everybody's GonNa lose some sort of money in some way That's like it. There is an even even missing two weeks so far for three weeks. Everybody something at some point already let alone three months so just what it is now. We all have. It's funny though. Like rolling his group tax right. And we're all talking all the time and God damn I'm in so many tax my wife is just like what is going on. And it's so and it's okay. Maybe funny is the right the wrong word here but it's so interesting or funny to see which are your friends are preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse. And the friends and people are just moving on life as normal. No problems right. You guys agree and and everybody's listening to this. Has Those people I just? I find that part of human behavior a little fascinating to watch and I'm not judging either way. It's just I think interesting to see how people are handling this so the bad time for the because no one never I believe in a time of human history have people been so a opinionated and be able to express those opinions For sure they've never been able to express opinions like this. So in a time where even under mundane stuff. Everyone's an expert. Everyone's an expert on every topic the topic. That people are more interested in than ever because it has a massive effect on all of us in one way shape or form. Everybody's an expert that's been like multiplied times one thousand so it's unbelievable to hear how many theories and ideas are out there just yet dizzying ride. Jt you agree. Yeah you know for me. There are a lot of factors. If where do you live what you know the gentleman that was from New York? It's obviously much more dire situation there right now. Then a lot of places in the country And then I think a lot of it comes down to how much of the news you absorb. How lucky speed or are you on things? You know because if you don't pay attention you probably don't think it's all that bad like you. You can't see it's not like you can see a virus floating around and maybe you don't know that certain parts of the maybe you don't know the New York City is struggling so bad Yeah I I think there are. There are a lot of factors dictating. How people are absorbing this and You know Mike Lantana. This is probably leading one side of that charge. And then you know there. There are other people that I know that in Idaho better on the opposite extreme of that too so it's all perspective student jump the quad. Yeah well we were all waiting for it and we. We didn't get it all right. I stopped by Tanner. What's going on? You got a question about the tenor. Yes see you always talk about how much money they bring in for that race that USA rider should get paid more because they bring in the most fans and viewers. So what. If like you know like I buy either by the race like the stream every year. I don't even know how much it costs but what if I win. I buy that I type in like USA. Or I you I told Mack shares the link that USA percentage of the money that I pay for that street and goes like the USA riders. The team sure great awesome. Yeah I I've always said that. This race is a huge moneymaker. That's very very low purse. You just supposed to wrap your flag around yourself and go but in these times whether it's a pandemic or not it's very very expensive. Us As the number one draw that race and they have the furthest to go not the furthest but among the furthest to go and they get nothing for and someone's making a lot of money. So sure tanner. I would like that. Sure thanks for the call. Thank you Chris's on four. Chris. What's going on? You WanNa talk about supercross motocross. What's happening. Yeah I got a question with the supercross being postponed till the end of the national this allow pro circuit to like move South Haymaker and let him raise the last few rounds or Carson Mumford for Honda. What do you think we each amateur wise? Yeah that is interesting because I mean I guess the plan as of now as I say. Loretta Lynch to still run at the same time. It's GonNa be a dizzying scheduled to get the qualifiers in before that. But I think they've tried to figure out a way to do that. But let's say for ARGUMENT'S SAKE THAT LORETTA THAT's still over at the beginning of August. Normally get the last three nationals in but I think the way we work now it'd be four or five because the nationals are say a week or two later and they normally would but the hey four or five races more experienced good. I think that's a no brainer. The real question is. Will anyone be tempted? There will be some supercross races. Apparently would anyone be tempted? I think the writers would like to try it. The teams are probably GonNa be like no no no no. You need full off season to be ready for this. But it's an option that would has never existed before. Yeah I do. That would be the real odd part and we got to figure out pointing out to JT. I guess if they're seven rounds were good. But if there's not going to figure all that out yeah that'll be something that's sorted out and and you know what are they gonNa do with that? Are they gonNA hit? If some of the rounds of we've heard taking place in places that we've heard right and a lot of those I've heard have been more west coast. Based how do they an East Coast Ray into that forum? So there's a lot of things that have to be sorted out and yeah I can't imagine the conversations and ideas that are being thrown around and Palmetto Florida where we're Feld motorsports says bass. Thanks for the call man appreciate it thank you. I I does seem like the monster. Energy Cup will be the final round right of super cons. I think Roughly Cup is done. I don't think you're GonNa see that race happen this year They may re we have. We may have a point pain round at that venue things. Yeah Yeah I guess we're doing the monster energy. Yeah I guess that's what I meant. That date will be but the soccer team. I think that plays in that stadium and MLS will be up and running. They're not gonNA want supercross with the grass so I don I heard they would be running and obviously we're all basing it on rumor and ideas but I heard they would run through the end of October. So timeline doesn't wind up with what you're saying but that's what I heard. The last one would be right around Halloween. Daniel what's going on man not much. Hey everyone talking about these last seven rounds in the fall and I wanna see the last seven rounds as well but logistically with baseball getting push back in the Union College football and NFL season. I mean how. How realistic can we be that? We're going to have these races or we just going to have to start getting really creative with different venues and stuff such i. I've said this Daniel we I don't I can't see how they get seven in. I know TV contracts. And I know you know. We wanted to the championship sports matter though. The sports are not to me that sport. There's other sports are not a factor. How are they gonNA find enough venues the got Saint Louis? They have plenty as they have. They have Saint Louis they have Carson California which is where Monster Energy South. They have qualcomm. They have Oakland I think there are ways to do them even if they find one that you and run multiple rounds in one venue. I. I don't see other sports being involved as a women factor that that's just my opinion. Mary go down. I'm GonNa just talk to this before we go but I don't see how they get seven in racing if we can go racing like the world has healed enough he raising. I think we get seven. It's either to me. It's either zero or seven opinion. We what do you think it's GonNa be tough to find venues because the football thing I think is a little overrated because it's also should not be baseball season for a lot of that but that could be pushed back and then you'd have to hope that teams that are giving stadium aren't in the playoffs when they suddenly play a whole another month and the dais could change rapidly But what I've heard is a bigger issue. Is there stuff we're not even thinking about Every other thing that could ever take place in a stadium concert show anything also push back so we're going to potentially have what the last four months three months of the calendar year with every single thing that was supposed to take place from March Tuesday August all and trusted a disposable income of people to go and everything else. Yeah I just. I don't know I don't see I'm not as firm. Jt On that zero or seven. I think we're GONNA think you're going to crank out a bunch of events and the same venue like to you're gonNA find one venue like St Louis. Where they're they're open for business and really want us there. And you're going to them. Rod Monster Truck Races supercross races very often place like that under its qualcomm or or Home Depot Center. I don't even know if it's still called that Or St Louis somewhere like that. I I don't think we're going to seven different cities and I didn't mention that but I definitely do not believe we want to seven different cities. Yeah all right thanks Daniel. Thanks for the call. Hey No problem guys. Thank you something that I've heard and I'll before we take some calls here on the fly racing racer x podcasts. Let's quickly run through the sponsors for this. Thank you fly. Racing car racing dot com up there in Boise Idaho and producing some great stuff. There mountain bike line of stuff. Get out on your bicycle people. It's fantastic. I've got a bunch of the shorts and shirts and jerseys and everything else so thank you fly racing dot com for that maxis of course. Amex s teas used by Alex. Rae Out there in the sand you also tracking on in that sense action that supercars with his tees also thanks to rent the rent dot com. You know their name. You know their style. Seven eighths bar twin wall bar. Mcgrath debuted a ninety eight. Pontiac crashed out with that dot com for more information on that. I want to thank the alias. Cbd Guys Alias. Rexecode to save with them race tech suspension and motors as well of course the chaperone. Honda guys using race tack out there with their riders and Michael Poor Michael Lindsay by way. Good God if it could anything go wrong for your debut season as a team owner Michael Lindsay but using rice. Pop Twenty Zero to save with those guys. Now it'd be a good time to go. Send your suspension often get service up and ready to go and we also we have another guy on board with us on X MAPS DOT COM. You can find places to ride. You can find. Places abound by to hike It's actually originally developed. I think for hunting to figure out where places to do that are so good on maps dot com or get the actual APP which is really the key and use a GPS. Even if you don't have cell service it will still show you where to go and what to do so. Good way to find places to ride on X. MAP DOT com. Thanks to those guys for coming on board. So some talk about a little bit is so there's been some some combination conversations with fouled and and the teams few phone calls everything else Amex. Sports obviously released their scheduled for the outdoors mid June. We're starting up super costumes. Starting in the fall two teams though from what I hear from two three good sources the teams are really wanting super cross the finish first before the nationals and I get that chase sexton jumping from a to fifty points lead to a four fifty motocross back to two fifty Tomac and rocks and millions of dollars at stake but I I got a bride twenty two outdoor mode to figure it out so I understand the teams complaints and I was Kinda waiting to see behind the scenes. There's a power or something going on here but we just seems like it's not going to happen but I'm keeping one eye open and kind of seeing what's going on. Yeah I'm really surprised. Maybe there was some pushback but I'm surprised it didn't turn into just world war because we have seen over and over. How teams operate if you're in a championship hunt. If you have an opportunity to win they will stop at nothing. It's it's all about their perspectives. And you could even say that it literally their job to do that. So if you are Kawasaki Honda and there are three points between these guys. And you're one twist of an ankle away at Red Bud from blowing that man. I don't think they want any part of it so just circumstances and if any other team were in that situation they'd probably feel the same way but I think the nail in the coffin came when we heard I think it was last Friday That felled had laid off a lot of their employees like a significant amount like ninety percent. It doesn't affect super cost as much as you might think because they supercross is one of the few things where the people participating are not filled employees most of their events. It's all failed one hundred percent. So that's where a lot of those cuts come from but it doesn't sound to me like it's even possible for fell to run event in. May or June to even get these in Before the nationals. I mean maybe they could do it in July and the National Cup two whole months but it just doesn't sound like that's something filled looking to do and I would bet you the reason. Why ramp this all up just to find out? The events are still canceled. I don't think they wanNA take that chance. They wanted to wait longer. Yeah I mean I understand the team side. I do it's GONNA cause a ton of inconvenience both contractually and workload and everything in between but I really think that everybody in every line of business is going to have to compromise and there's GonNa be a lot of work around for everyone Everyone involved in every aspect of business is going to have to to is not going to be perfect. They're going to have to find compromise. So if that's what it takes. I think the teams have to do it. It's not going to be perfect. Nothing about this situation's going to be perfect but if that's the solution and that's the only way it can work for a myriad of reasons from venues to ability to everything right then then so what what's what's bear down and get it done. And I can guarantee you the riders. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA wind for a day or two and then they're gonNA shrug their shoulders and they're gonNA go riding. Yeah well I mean certainly some good thoughts there i. I understand what they're saying too. Yeah but elegant stuff. Scott got a series to run to and they've got TV contracts and everything else you know. So I think one of the biggest things is if you look at the logistics of putting on a supercross versus is putting on a national. I don't think you have the same level of flexibility it. It's easy to call. W W ranch and be like. Hey what do you think June thirteenth? We can do this. I mean and if it doesn't work let's say everyone is still in shutdown to call them and say well we might have to go to July. Thirteenth is a lot easier than dealing with a stadium. I don't think you can ramp up or ramp down a stadium event in the same amount of time You KINDA motocross race. So I think that's kind of why I it's hard for failed to guess may fifteenth. We think we can be good may fifteenth and may tend to find that you can't that's faster and you hold qualcomm for surfer a week. Yeah yeah sorry. It looks like it's not GonNa work out lockdown continues. I just don't think when you're dealing with the stadium like moving a gigantic cruise ship. You just don't have much flexibility and you're not nimble put on twitter the other day that I thought that we'd get supercross in the fall and Jimmy bought news and agent said what about contracts. Just like what? What would you just move them? You just move the dates. Every this isn't something that's going to change anything I mean and again you know. Riders you switch teams and everything else like. Were looking at having everything wrapped up by mid October. So you have November and December his point valid. Right let's start there but I would think Jimmy would understand that yeah. A lot of these things are going to have to everything about the sport and a half and you know my my world's smallest violin for a rider having only eight weeks to get ready to a new bike and a new team. Yeah that's not. That's not a concern. Hope Everything Right. Now big picture. We're in a pandemic here. I think a guy can handle eight weeks on a bike before the twenty twenty one supercar series hopefully starts up so all right. Mike wants to talk about J. G. R. Mike what's going on? What do you WanNa talk about? Hey how's it going good So how does J. Bone right now because survive should be healed up for the last? Half of supercross yeah Freddie northern should be healed up and do they bring brock tickle back also as Jimmy d going to be healthy I mean we. Each things are finally falling into place for J. T. R. J. Bone. I joked about I think they are looking at it. That way They didn't have any guys to raise the only loser in this as well. Francois who's been sent back wasn't ride lasted one week for his fantasy for his fantasy performance. Tone he can go back to France and think about that. Oh no he will never get a chance to redeem himself in India which was set to do But I have heard even for outdoors. They were kicking around ways To even keep took a long for that so I don't think it'll be I. I would think unless comes up particular. Better deal or some other team offers them. But I think you could see all three of those guys racing outdoors And what the heck they're gonNA raise supercross not that far after. Yeah keep it going. Please let jr lift or the outdoors. Get back to something go. It's not hurting them badly. They're still going. Yeah Corey course. Good Dude. And he'll do the right thing. I think a lot of time so as much as she does we give them so. Thanks Mike thank you thank you so so we just correct me if I'm wrong but it took pandemic for things to go. Jr's way to ask this is like it's got so bad. It went all around the world that got so bad. Turn Good Right. Okay thank you. I was just checking Mike. You gotTA MAC theory. Yeah I gotTa tell Mac don't he or isn't he? Going to have a baby in September I could throw a wrench as supergrass supercross restart. That he himself is not going to have the baby. Why you should be fine? People HAVE BABIES IN THE MIDDLE OF RACES. Seizing and nothing changes. I don't Mike kind of with you on that. I don't really know I I get. I get your point but as a father. I know how much it takes them. You know we should know but look at it. He's Kinda struggling this year. I don't know what do you think? Maybe maybe lose them some sleep. I don't know I read dog had I think it was. Maybe it was when he was racing right Tim. Jt never had back when he was racing. I don't think but I haven't had any. He slept in in the bedroom literally. Just let him by himself in another bedroom to to make sure that sleep happened. You know so. Riders can adjust my Yup. Thank you. Yeah thanks and physically TELMEX not having a baby so everything will be fine there. Matt's on to Matt what's going on. Hey I was. Just looking at the archives Lovin callans raise your and Brought me back to the original Monster Cup with Villapando sweeping in the outdoor section. Now that Steve in Vegas you know allowed for the track to go and around. You know not viewing experience. Sheriff's Fan there in the stadium but I thought that that was schick thoughts. I the first cool. It's people forget now. The original goal of that race was believe it or not to maybe get the Tony. Karoly I don't I think it was so long over hurling them as bigger factors. Two thousand eleven. I think right to get some of those guys to like. Hey what if we had a race where everybody was in it so I think the outdoor style section there is a little enticement It's worked what we got guys are to race it twice. Ben Townley whatever you WANNA consider him. Gp Guy or not. He's come over like really who's the GP dudes the write supercar from France. I was just glad was alive. Yeah yeah that was that First Monster Cup the yeah. They had some good intentions everything else but the way too long it was so long both all three main events I remember. The guy's it felt someone it felt told me while we really really screwed that up as far as the length of the racism the length of the track the very first one. Because if I didn't have that time it was a snore. Fest BUT YEAH. That was the plan. Whoops KAROLY IS GONNA show up and it's going to be amazing but you know so you guys are getting the fourth this year. I wonder how do you done better? With more of outdoor section guys got four. Who knew that? I remember the number one but it was something like that again. I have a gun. You have a gun to my head and asked me who on all mantra. I'd be shooting the head because I know I know STU one. Rv won a million complained. Millsap millsaps one on a cowie remember. Everyone was like Oh shit and then it was always the race where somebody came in one weird. Barsha one one year Tomac won on a Honda the final. Rv One million million. I'm Rwandan former one. Main on a two fifty no. That's I'm getting joking. I do know that. Thanks for the call appreciate it. Thank you one of the things. You runs a number five next year. I don't know yeah good question. Somebody wasn't it available this year? I thought it was and they passed. I don't know yeah all right thanks I yeah was. It wasn't available this year. I thought it was. What was it number five peak so you gonNa Chase sexton question? What's up Dave So if you put trace X. outdoors and then arrested him getting hurt for the fall. 'cause now he's leading the. I mean that's that's a good question but deals don man. It's tapping he's tested on it. You know I think you stay with that program. We each okay. Yeah I I'm just gonNA adventure guests here. I don't really think that sexton racing four fifty outdoors and having to go back to the indoors is the real issue. Do not think this Honda just pulling out. Every single reason they can come up with to not have to have rocks and go through twenty two outdoor photos and I'm not saying that's worse for him than telemaque but it's just not a situation either writer wants to be and so I would just feel like yeah. Let's pull anything we can possibly come up with and I even heard they even said hey man. This is really not good for Britain. You can't even race Australia. Which I don't think the factor anyone's plans at all but I feel like they pulled every single angle. They could to try to stop this. It is three points between them. Twenty two motives this hairball stop. What I'm confused you got. You lost me. I'm sorry I don't think Honda and callous hockey feel comfortable. Having three points between these guys and having months and months of racing they're afraid someone's GonNa Tear C. L. Break a wrist so I think they argue with every angle that got us the sexiest on us. The BRAYTON IN AUSTRALIA. One everything you have to try to make. It seem like a bad idea. I see to to get to start outdoors before supercars got it. Okay got it to start start outdoors after super. I don't I just can't imagine nervous. They're going to be all summer. Yeah yeah absolutely. Thanks for the call. Appreciate it championship there. Those racist pay a lot of money and championships. Hey a lot of money. It's not like holding eleven exhibition races all summer. I completely agree but I feel like when we get to these championships. Situation is rational thought starts to lose starts to leave the building. You're completely right. It's not like the outdoor title. Doesn't pay money. I don't want to win. Those races either But I think when it sitting there right in front of you I mean. We went to close title fights come. We've seen weird stuff happened. So people start losing their minds and then might just need logically logically. You know. It's it's every bit of one hundred thousand dollars plus per outdoor to win. Maybe more maybe one fifty right for these guys and then you're also championship. I Remember Grand. Lyson making like one point six million when he wanted the championship in seven. So to me screw you know like the supercross championships GonNa come when it come. There's money right in front of me and championships right in front of me. So get so. I know that's probably a difficult thing to do. But that would be my. That would be what I would try to do. Do you think that the cow in Honda really just want a real announcer announcing for them in indoors? And that's why I got a great team over there to do an excellent job no complaints. I'm just saying they're going to be nervous. Like the Weirdo Team. Tactics and crazy finale. We've seen win. Titles on the line. Now they're gonNA have that mentality for months. Yeah outdoor title matter absolutely. Do THEY WANNA win it. Absolutely a normal circumstances no with it. I just feel like those two riders. Those two teams are going to be like. Oh Jerry I'm no I don't know I think maybe if outdoor championship wraps up September fifth which was at the the date I saw and the supercross resumes. Let's say September you know Nineteen just. I'm just guessing. I have no idea. Yeah maybe Alaska around. You started getting a little nervous because it's right around the corner but I think in early to mid June you can't think about September. That's where I would be at on it. I mean that's so far away and so much racing and I've I've raced being carefully. You know being careful taking chances and it. Kinda doesn't matter usually when you get hurt at some sort of Weirdo circumstance. They get landed on or their trash. Something stupid it's not that they just make a huge mistake and and crash on their own. The I I'm I'm kinda split in between you. Two guys like I do. The supercross championship is more important than the outdoor championship. We've seen that over the years. Supercross is the number one series off road in the world. So it's very very important for these companies to win so they have to keep an eye on that I'm talking about being. Yeah it'd be controlling their actions as you know. Yeah I can't see it right. I don't think so. I think once they go racing they'll be fine but I just mean more when the meetings are going on today that they're gonNA they're they have but once the decision is made or maybe already already has been made. Yeah it goes back to work and they raise like they're supposed to but I could just see them fighting as hard as they can especially because things the unique circumstance we have the two writers who have been supposed to win this title over and over and have it wanted and they finally put themselves in position to get it and they gotta be like. Oh Yeah I'll that's now is a good point two guys who have been waiting for this thing you know. Two years ago twenty eighteen be like who cares. Or don't you develop are both like okay. We'll pick it back up. No worries you know one guy that could benefit from this would be cooper web right because he was somewhat taken out championship his trashing Arlington and then his injuries past that he he certainly wasn't at one hundred percent so yeah they're going to be easy for him to get back and go win a championship. Seven rounds and being you know twenty plus points down now but I like his chances better. Starting over one hundred percent healthy than I did. Were sitting fly. Racing racer x podcasts presented by maxis rental and Alias of course and on x on x one x. Thank you next maps. Thanks for calling in. We'll wrap this thing up here a little bit. We talked a little bit on on how we're handling it but it's odd to me and look. I. I spent a little bit of time on vacation. It's still it's it's really bizarre to think. Jt that we've got at least another month going on here. Were just you know. I've been trying to do some stuff around the house and my wife is hanging out and good God. Yeah I mean it's tough to know you know. Every day is is more news you know. I don't know I think it's GonNa look a little bit different depending on where you are. The hardest hit areas. I think are going to be. They're going to be shut down longer. And I think our governing bodies have been pretty transparent with that They've even said Yeah. Places that have been less hit in the country might be opened up earlier than other places They're such a widespread economic impact of all this stuff that as soon as it's possible to open up certain cities in certain states. I think they're going to have to on that to preserve what's left of the economy See I don't know that we can. We can have hard answers yet and what we think is GonNa Happen Right now in a month from now we may be again laughing at ourselves for thinking that was going to go on that and that timeframe can we get things going as soon as we can so why can't an stocks getting a better spot getting better position. Having a good day today days have been awesome. I told you guys man never bail just sick with your you. You've been like a rock. I have looked at once and I'm just like let's just close the laptop and Gary on everything will be better here at some point. That's all I gotta believe. But it's it's really really crazy. I mean we're in the content producing business. Racer x online is up and running. And we're we're providing things for people to read and people to listen to and I'm GonNa keep my stuff going as well but it is a bizarre thing about like again. I was on vacation for a little bit of their so. I haven't been doing this as long as you guys have. We got another month at least at least here to kind of think about things. I do worry. The longer this goes on how long the country holds up. Because I feel like we've never been put into this level of a test where something is both financial and health related and in some jobs such as ours You can't even just go about your normal job because the job has been all changed in messed up also through. You're being hit in so many ways like are you more worried about catching Or you're more worried about becoming unemployed and losing your house and then you've got to home school. Some people do which is not something most people can do or could do you have to You're just getting hit from all these angles. I described there on a video last week. Where you're in this box. An all angles are closing in on you more and more. I just wonder how long everyone can keep their cool. Like I feel like right now. People have fun with it. You're seeing means people. Are We said going riding or working on their bike that worked for a little while but can the country handle three months of that uncertainty from all sides without just completely boiling? It's live That's not the way America's program to work. This could be really difficult the longer it goes on. That's my fear. Tiger King Part. Two allie run out of tiger king episodes what happens? I don't know I. I got a lot more questions about that. So hang in there. Everybody hanging there everybody. And if you're somebody in the front lines a doctor nurse Healthcare professional thank you.

And we've never talked since Luna's before the five hundred events Dave and I fly to Germany. Go down the street guard. There's this little shop at the back of the mall. Factory we get their cylinders. Take them back off. We go and you know we ran. Nicosia cylinders is factory party for us. A handful of years before anybody ever saw in production day told Miguel was all the big pancake thing. And he's got the thing he's completely lay on the gas tank trying to miss his three and he would have gotten even harder jump. Farther is that you know. It's been there Bob. I love the Guy I don't this I think he's the greatest competitive sport ever had absolutely one hundred percent. My mind firmly believe that statement. I said about these modern day guys in Switzerland or Belgium forty five minutes on the same bike. You're not beating you crazy. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better. Nowadays Pool so different bikes. Different Times Beasts East Damon. It got to the point where I didn't want to leave home and once I got to the race I wasn't into it. I wasn't going to give one hundred percent. I'M NOT GONNA TAKE MONEY. The working class hero. Doug Henry definitely an emotional moment for me just thinking to myself. That's it you know. It's amazing the stuff that goes to your head in a short amount of time of the things that you know that I was Gonna Miss Machine until you really open years and you wanNA listen to what they're saying like beating a dead horse and I know from personal experience Buzney by ever down. Of course everybody did go. Circuits Mitch. Pay There's two ways to make the money one is you can sign for money or two. You can earn the money. I'm a high believer in earning the money. I think they ride better when they earn. The money seven-time Jeremy McGrath so disappointed so frustrating said I picked. I left every point count. I could kick myself to the day for not just riding around and been no problem. My Ego got in the way. Show Johnny Depp. That you could be eating WanNa ride and he just wanted to look at it all day.

So that's twenty twenty, one monster energy super-cross schedule has dropped and with with me here to discuss zip the pros, the cons, the INS, the outs, and and we have some. is a fly racing zone Jason Thomas. Now much the date we have been waiting for is finally arrived I'm excited. You. Know we've been speculating. We heard other cities in Texas originally there were lot of rumors floating around out there but. I don't even know that you could say this finale because we still have be as and we know better than to just say oh? Yeah we're set after last year. It is nice to take a step forward Anyway all of these rounds that are announced not the case but all the ones that are announced, we'll have a percent offense whatever percent that is may change what percent that. Is We don't quite know but they will have fans. Yeah. I don't think there will be any races scheduled in two thousand, twenty one that do not have fans. Yeah. That's my prediction I think It was a pretty painful yet. Necessary. Route to go ask offense but I don't think they're doing that again. So three around Houston Sixteenth Nineteenth Twenty third. So it's a Saturday, a Tuesday Saturday. Then we go. A week. The next week is two rounds, a Indianapolis Saturday and the Tuesday. Then we take a couple of weeks off then three rounds in Glendale Saturday Tuesday Saturday February. Then we take a week off or not no week off there I don't think, and then we go to Daytona for single event and then of course, a couple of weeks off and we're in three in Dallas three to be announced and we wrap up in salt. Lake City. So that's the schedule. Online, of course, for more details we got we got to speculate those three or in California somewhere. Aiming for that's why there is A. Four four rounds I guess Yeah. I would think. So right that's what they're hoping for. There's a vaccine for this cove. Or the state laws are relaxed. They do the percent of fans with no vaccine. Or there's a quick like they're talking now about a quick five minute saliva check right entering into places something right some Najan having everybody get five minutes checks to get into the stadium. No. That's not reality, but that's what they're talking about. So. Yeah. You have to think the folks that failed want there to be a couple. Anaheim's maybe vegas maybe a San Diego maybe in Oakland. Those are four cities in my that could fill those four rounds or have a couple of Anaheim's in what I think. I. Think you'RE GONNA see three in one or two that would be my guess for those four. You can even see all four at one but I I do not think that would happen I. Think. It's already going to be very challenging to get. Three rounds in one city with twenty thousand people So yeah, I don't I can't imagine they would. Think that they could sell tickets for if they don't if the California thing doesn't happen, we don't go to Racing California, do they go back to and we'll find more about this. There's a press conference companies immediate call I should say Dave Prater coming up here in a few hours but. Do they go back to one of the previous cities or do they find some new cities like St Louis? Obviously, he's been on the Mat for a while they've had some crackdowns where the people aren't letting the you know anybody. Go public gatherings. So, do you think they find new cities or do they go back to some of these cities but they have a list right that Saint Louis is on and I bet vegas is on it about California cities are on it. No I'm saying if the California don't happen the preferred don't happen. I bet there's A. Tears this is tear a we want to be in California because that's strong market for us and then okay have California's just out we're out of California period as a state law or state regulation. then. Yeah. I think you have to start looking at a of places in what makes sense what's possible? You have to imagine if Missouri is open to it, Saint Louis would love to welcome supercross at that time of year that that would be my guess. You look at Nashville. So your saying we are not going to go back to any of these previous cities. Like you don't see rounds fourteen back in England I. Don't think. So because I just think your, you're asking too much of the local population to spend money. I think there are a lot of cities that make sense. I think even. Places. Like, Jacksonville places like Tampa. Kelly s surprised that we don't have a Florida city on high. I would bet you that there on that list as a backpack. I'm very surprised. We're not going to Nashville I am. So we'll see. But yeah, there's still four to two out and I'm skeptical and California. I'm hopeful but I'm skeptical. So we'll see what what that brings huge room the whole time this whole, this whole time and I I think I texted a rider that you can count on San Antonio being one of them I. Really I really heard San Antonio so that well, whether that's a backup city as you said, I'm surprised we're not going to San Antonio. Well, I think San Antonio was on the West because it did not have conflicting sports but I think with the rough start that the Houston Texans have gotten off to. The likelihood of them. A playoff game is virtually nil because they continue to lose. they lost again last weekend. So that frees up freeze them up right and you're talking about. Not only would it be hosting a playoff game? It would be hosting deep into the playoffs for for that to be affected and I think that's I really think that's what they were waiting on on some level of Texans thing win and if they did really well, I could see them either pushing Houston back or just going San. Antonio and Houston doesn't make schedule could be interesting to see. Obviously, you know go to Indianapolis for a Saturday and Tuesday. There's not going to be practicing for those guys when the writers though there it's certainly not a right unless you wanted to fly home. Yeah I don't see that happening, but but maybe but. You know in Houston and Glendale in Dallas these teams will have to find a place to ride and the riders will want to get on their bike for a woman. We saw that in Salt Lake City you're GonNa Thursday that'll be interesting to see them find a spot and go riding and we did I think Sunday Monday they'd be okay to take off. Yup. But that Thursday were it's a day after day before yeah you're GONNA they're gonNA WANNA ride right. So that'll be interesting to see the guys and find out where they ride and what they WanNa do and everything else for the teams in the writers as far as the fans go. It'll be interesting to see JT. Like we had the red but we Salt Lake City fans were allowed at all salt red Bud though we did have a Friday race and a Sunday race and the Sunday race was a ghost town and we know that these will probably have futures at these. So they'll be a base of people they're racing futures, but I'm wondering and this spitballing are we going to see? The maximum amount of fans at a to at the Tuesdays and Saturdays you gotta remember they weren't allowed to have fans at Red Bud. Well. Yeah. The Ram mature guys. But yeah, right. They were not allowed to have spectators that won't be this I think it'll be okay I. Think. You know it's GonNa. Be At night I. Don't think it'll be a daytime of into Tuesday night. And what I what? I would look at it as if I'm a fan and you have all this pent up demand and you'd like man I've been stuck inside especially thinking about going back into winner people are going to be stuck again inside after not probably going to supercross last year. If I could go into town salad in Michigan right and you're looking at indy and you could drive a few hours. Get a hotel room for like four nights. You get two races in you get to hang out with your family in the city I can I'm in on that like that would be great four or five day little mini vacation you get two races in. So I think you'll see a lot of that you'll see surrounding areas people from Ohio people from Michigan people from Iowa coming over. To. Take in that experience. So you think that for the most part, the maximum amount of fans that are loud will be most of these. Yeah I think they made pretty strategic decisions on where to go with three rounds. INDIES only two but Houston you have a huge demo from people coming from down from. Dallas. Over from San. Antonio over from Louisiana right they're going to draw all those in. It's also the opener. and. It'll be interesting to see what the numbers I'm GonNa Guess It's around twenty thousand. But we don't know that maybe maybe Feld, we'll be forthcoming without this afternoon. But yeah. The less that number goes down I think the likelihood we we sell them out. Yeah it'll be. It'll be interesting to see for sure I. Think Tuesday will be the tough one. Yeah. That's a workday. You throw a lot of people but even then like. You know the the night show doesn't start until seven o'clock or whenever opening ceremony six thirty. That's doable. If you whip Houston. Okay. If you've got an hour early, you can still make it like so I don't think it's GonNa be. Too Bad I just wonder about ticket prices and I wonder about how many people. But as a fan purely as a fan if I lived in Houston, I'm going to all three like without a doubt I'm there absolutely see I think that's a tough ask but in this day and age in with jobs lost and what's going on the Covid I think that's a tough ask especially, we know that felled has been kind of slowly raising the ticket prices the last few years from what the old promoters have got rid of those tread had seats. You know they're making a little bit more. Pricier to go now hopefully I'm wrong but Yeah. We'll see what happens. I. Don't know who would go to three because we have such a great TV package to. Me Tuesday's tough one, right? Yeah. Saturday Saturday to Saturday I don't see any prominent when would be If on the schedule like there's always a day after it would be every every time I don't know. Yeah I don't. Normally there on a Sunday. So you could go Sunday January seventeenth Houston but I don't think he would have another one before Tuesday, but it would be Sunday on Sunday Sunday. You wanted my guests Sunday. It'll be interesting to see here, fire racing racer x podcast presented by Maxon. Rendova supercross schedule has dropped. Now, fly racing company you work for is a presenting sponsor of super costs and you guys do the fan fast. You have a couple of semis there we do a fly Racing Radio Show Aka, the pulp show in the pits. Plans are still to have that going on from your aspect of fly racing that's going to be they want fans they're they're going to have a fan fest right? That'll be the plan. Yeah. This'll be your three for us and. That is the plan as far as I know it I. Think it will look a little different you know before it was. Such a a great free for all but it was a free for all those people everywhere and they're allowed to. Touch items and try them on and check out the formula helmet and size themselves. So then they can go to the dealer and they know what they're buying. They buy it from there you know Taylor. That's all I think going out the window I don't think there will be. Touching allowed I don't think you're going to be able to touch any products because they're gonna be so worried about Kobe spreading. So how that looks I think we're GONNA learn a lot. We'll probably learn some of that today from. Feld releasing more information but I do know that fan fest is a part of their plans and it's such a huge part of. Sponsoring, supercross being a part of that entire program, they're going to do everything possible I think to to make that is relevant and add value to it because for whether it's flat racing or Toyota or your energy or cooper tires or whoever that's a big part of our there. That's a big part of our involvement and customer engagement that day not to say, we wouldn't be involved anyway. But I. Think it would be a pretty big financial difference if removed from the program. In your eyes, every one of these rounds will have a fan fest yeah. Yeah I would be worried about his indy being way January or February weather being a factor. But I think they're planning on having it. Yeah. Absolutely. Be Interested. The amateur supercross races are running I. Bet they are in Daytona. Yeah. Those things print money for it is basically a wide open gaffer's regulation. Yeah. So that'll be interesting to see that. So We're we're planning on doing the racing radio show right that they've indicated on again adding to Fanfest There will be that part of it now. The pits. Total lockdown in Salt Lake. City. For media for everybody know fans again and total lockdown for if you weren't in their pod if you weren't the rider group and we saw you know, I mean, dominate got kicked out like they were they were checking out the. Charge guy got kicked out they were definitely not kidding around with that. Do you put everything at risk. You know do you foresee that happening now? Like okay there's a couple levels here. Do you see fans allowed in the pits. And then posters being signed. There's there's no chance the writers are going to do. So autograph sessions but I'm saying posters signed posters being handed out and we got to keep this mind when I say, no autograph sessions I'm speculating I don. Guessing we're talking to feel very calm about that. So no autograph sessions. We would think do you think the fans are allowed in the pits to see CD bikes teams guess I do but I think there will be I could even see it being you know when you go to to. and. It's all like. Hard plastic. Yeah. aped where it's off-limits almost I could see it being that too. I don't know but I could see them because they're gonNA want that and it's very important for sponsors to have that. That's why were there is to encourage customers to be more familiar with our brands and teams and everybody Yup. I. Think they're going to enforce some sort of barrier. Young riders certainly won't be interacting with fans and then I think there might even like mechanics and everybody we know the Honda has been on the forefront of safety and they don't WanNa take any chances. They don't necessarily want their employees travel. So I could see Honda B and yet we have barriers up. You can see it's clear but there will be no interaction between the canucks drivers or anybody. I could almost see the pits being closed. Totally. There's a fan fest part. And then. Yeah and then I wonder as far of a media guy or goggles guys or these type of people that roam the pits chiropractors right are they are we going to be subjected to the same sort of laws and rules that we were in Salt Lake City I wonder about that I don't think it will be the same I think everyone will be forced to get tested again. But you know we also have to. Thinking about how far out that is from even now you're three or four months out just to start the series. Knowing what we know now knowing to two months and two weeks. Okay. Knowing, what we know about the low fatality rate and we know so much more about the virus I don't think you're gonNA, see full lockdown like everybody six feet as like I think it's GonNa be a different than that. There will be a lot of rules but I don't think it's going to be as hardcore. Be Interesting to see I mean the outdoor nationals were hey, you can. I. Mean. There was definitely more relaxed I mean if you. An NFL game right now it's fairly normal not as many people as they want but like, it's not like it was going back to Salt Lake where it's like you and I had to be space like we couldn't even get near each other in the press box. There's fans everywhere and they're going to concession stands. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. No that'd be interesting to see. What the rules are and how it works but Yeah I, think we can bank on no interaction between the raiders and the fans, and that that we can take taken the bank maybe signed posters being headed by PR person perhaps, and you never ask a rider hey, I need you to engage with about one thousand people in the next thirty minutes they're going to be like a hard. No, you imagine asking Kenny to do that. Absolutely which would be Ridiculous ask anyway. So we talked about no Florida which were surprised and there's still four rounds TV there's no Florida outside of Daytona. There's no Saint Louis has no San Antonio those three surprises for me but you know as we brought up on the show last night. Indy Houston Dallas Glendale good. Good. Traditionally Yup good fan support excited for to be there. There's a few stops in the series that I if we'd gone there a Pontiac Detroit now. You know a few different spots or I'd be like. Like that wasn't a great venue, slash race itself. Oakland. But all of these ones that are on here I think are passionate. HOUSTON. Maybe we had a few rocky years with attendance, but I like all these venues they went to and like you said earlier, that's probably not a not an accident that we went to strong local races yet with good facilities it's going to be good. I think it's well thought out. I. Am shocked and I know we've said this already I'm shocked would do not have another Ford around I really am with it being so simple with fell being based in the Tampa Metro area. That just blows me away. I thought that was a shoo-in. And maybe we still see who knows on the list of BAP. It I thought that was just a walk. But yeah, overall I think they. You know they have so much data to draw from ticket sales and I'm sure they have a lot of metrics that they can pull from. You know it's funny that we're going to indy for two rounds when that was where everything came unglued last year. If you remember, you know I was that was there. I was already in India when the when the pulled hold. So it's funny that we're going back I guess I wouldn't have assumed. We would because that was where things really went sideways for the series and we know that the mayor of. And the governor were not playing games like it was like Yep. We're done like last minute everything's going over there like that was a really hard decision I'm sure to make. So. Yeah. That wasn't one that I had on my shortlist to go back to it is going to be frigging cold. is going to be, but you know what? They're up sites that too and Steve you know growing up in a cold climate that and I know Minneapolis was that race for you were like yeah let's go travel to it. That time of year, people are dying to do anything. Yeah. They can't go riding. Unless you're in an area that has like snow sports snowmobiling skiing or whatever there is nothing to do. So I would bet that that came into their psyche is like, Hey, this is a great opportunity because people are going to be dying to just get out of their house and go attend anything, and that goes for the whole Midwest So I think I think in the attendance will be sold out both rounds. I find it interesting with the with the dates obviously were pushed back in January a little bit. Now, we're doing three a week in three different spots. And, but we're not we're still ending in that first week in May that Salt Lake? City will be may I or may eighth from everything that I see? So we are ending on traditionally time for the the super cost and we have a couple week break. Between a couple of these rounds which. I mean I guess like I'm a little surprised that they wouldn't. Hey we're going to get seventeen in in whatever amount of weeks, but they're actually spacing this thing out pretty good we're, and we're getting few two weeks off and you think this will be a fundamental shift moving forward as far as how they schedule long term. I don't know. I would. I would love it I. Think. I think the seventeen and eighteen is just too much and when you add twelve round of motorcross coming in right after I think it's too much for these riders and teams. At this level and everything that happens. And if NBC who is driving everything, you know at the end of the day TV drives everything if NBC says man these Wednesday night Tuesday night Wednesday night races these Tuesday night racist I mean you know these ratings are great. There's nothing going on Monday night football. We're getting kill ratings we're going to pay. You felt a little more money. And we want a Tuesday night race and let's do four of those and now we're going Saturday Tuesday at the same venue TV driving it, and then we're spacing out weeks off, I would love it i. think that's Great. I think it's going to be followed the money. I think they're going to look at the end of this twenty, twenty, one campaign and look at okay, we had they felt has eighteen semi trucks on the road, right? That's a huge expense travel booking stadium of course, moving dirt in and out. There's endless amount of expenses that go along with supercross, which is often overlooked. Everybody's like, Oh, they pay riders more well, not that simple, but I think the. More they should. But I know from their side, they're like there's so much overhead guys like. You. have no comprehension of how much overhead there isn't. It's not our business you know at the same time, but they'll look at the end of the year and say, okay We sold West tickets. Yes but. Moving those three eighteen semi trucks into one city and covering three rounds how much did that? Once, one fight for all these guys save us you know and I think they're just going to look at the money and say is. You know selling sixty thousand tickets across three rounds versus. Let's say one, hundred and twenty thousand. Ish versus three rounds across three other cities. There's that number of dollars of revenue, and then how much do we save by not going to three different cities? We're just one city, and then I think that drives it I think if it's if it makes more sense for even just A. A break even. I think they probably would look at it because you're gonna you probably going to look at okay. Twenty thousand was the base right? If we did sixty thousand, that's going to increase because. These regulations of being able to sell twenty thousand. That's GONNA. That's be at twenty twenty one problem that's not going to be a twenty, twenty, two, problem twenty three. So. They could. They could potentially make a lot more money doing that if that equation works like man, we saved a lot of money doing all these three in one city plus maybe we turn that sixty thousand, three round ticket sale into ninety or one, hundred thousand. In Two thousand twenty are a ticket driven business but I think you're focusing too much on the tickets and I think it's NBC would want if NBC said as I said, these ratings are great i. don't think it's enough money like I know what the NBC number was I. Don't think it's enough money, but they would pay more no I'm saying they would say, Hey, man, we want you to do the Tuesday night thing because he's ratings are good and we have a blank schedule we're putting fishing or something. Here's a little bit more money run your races on Tuesday nights please and I think that is a driving. How much more money we talk I don't know. Of course they say, yes financially we need. Yeah. Yeah. Then I think that I think we'll see TV drive whether we're doing that I just look at our our supercross ratings and their abysmal. Come. Does NBC. Pony up for that. I don't know I. Don't know I have zero. Sarah Nights is a dead night of TV like regardless it is dead night it. It is proven that nobody. Yeah nobody watches TV on Saturday nights. That's one of supercross series is on. So we can put them on Tuesday nights. When people are home, maybe we see a ratings. I of course, we all would. It show. It's always going to be and we know this whether it's your side NBC side or whether it's ticket driven, it's always going to be financially. And that's that's a business author. They're. They're not in the spring practice and have you told Jason Thomas the racer. Back. In the day that hey man. We are going to race on a Saturday and Tuesday in the same city. Absolutely. But we and we are going to give you a few more weekends off. Make It, make it a twenty two. I didn't the race race rates rates like. I was fine. But I'm saying I think people would prefer. Yeah. Let's get this thing in Saudi Tuesday and then you're going to give me a weekend off. Yeah I'm in Oh absolutely. You know the first thing I would think of as I get on a plane once I get to go to that city and I make three rounds worth of. Well, I think for the future will be to like okay. Yeah it'd be. Yeah. But also that's how much practice you're now reducing and hardcore training to that's up. Yeah. That's a bonus to get a weekend off. I get more than one weekend off in a year account in the SUPERCAR. I. So. If you're looking for Morodor's and a team sandpoint if that works going forward if this fundamentally changes of the schedule a little bit I think the team before that but my fear would be filled with jam more rounds. And we know talking to like Zach Osborne and we heard Cooper web at press conferences. They loved it. Yeah Financially this went, he's never made more money. So I think I think if this changes in in fundamentally going forward, it would be two rounds, not three and would be a Saturday Tuesday. Depending on TV and you get that Saturday off and go back. Yeah or whatever. Yeah. Or maybe two weekends off in a row and go Saudi Tuesday Saturday Tuesday and you get a couple of weekends I'll get Rubik's cube if this works them trying to cooperate these changes into. The good thing is that I think it takes. Radical. Situation to incorporate change because you get so much pushback and you know that's right. You know this better than most the teams are just like Nope we don't want change. nope. We don't. We just want the same thing. That's what twenty laps you know. We went through that change with twenty to twenty minutes. But these these situations where everybody just shrugs her shoulders and goes yeah we. We're going to have to change something this world has changed. Yeah. Yeah. So I, think it's an opportunity for them to really. Affect a lot of change and make the series a lot better and more efficient, and all the changes you've ever wanted to see now's the time to force those through. Well, I wrote this about the the fall nationals we went back phone is about doing that I think it was a great idea. I think it was a big hit. I'd like to see it going forward. The weather. Yeah we probably won't going forward but. You know I brought up everybody knows the story of the CFL. Yeah. Where the jets very very popular story they were forced to change venue radically changed their place where they played due to a concert end up being a massive hit and they stayed in that place and so change sometimes. Necessitates. Four change a good change of positive change. So. Yeah being forced to change isn't isn't a bad idea so. Again fly racing racer x podcast presented by maxis and the folks that rent one of the folks raise tech as well. Pulp Twenty, two coats race ticket you suspension work done get your motor work done with the folks race tech They've got valves as well. Going on performance section going on folks race Dhec so whether it's a rebuild or whether it's performance reasons motor and suspension work are done at Race Tech Pulp Twenty can save you money. So show you bikes in love with the folks tech and we thank them for coming on so. So, really do you have an issue with them dropping a schedule on October twenty seventh and having four rounds not on the schedule? Like do you have? Are you WT F. on that I'm not at But but you know I think if it was three years ago, we'd all be like what yeah. But if there's if twenty twenty s told us anything, it's just to be adaptable. Be Willing to be very understanding of situations. So I was like, yeah, whatever it's so far away you know come on April twenty one. I in just because it's not on the finalize list knowing I got to go to Feld entertainment last year in meetings and our involvement with wpn firing now is on such a great level they are very transparent with us. They have a lot of possibilities on the table. It's not like. Yeah we'll. Just we'll see you know it's just they haven't signed the contract with stadiums, which is the biggest part of it, and they don't know what California's GonNa let him do and they don't know what other cities are possible. So I guarantee you there are. Probably five different contingency plans for those four rounds They're just waiting to see which one pans out and you are of the opinion that it won't be California I. Mean we don't know but I'm saying. We're. In. Vegas. Right now. Casino, in bit I, have not personally talked to felt about twenty twenty, one season at all, which is not normal. Normally, we would have had an in person meeting at least one by now we haven't because of COVID. So I haven't even had our normal conversations, but the only reason I could see them not posting those four rounds is because they want to get into California. So. Having said that. Knowing as aggressive as Gavin newsom has been with lockdowns. In the way Kobe even sitting here today is a spiking up again I don't see him allowing it happen but but you never know like vaccine come winner waffling though I'm trying to get. Let's say no. But. You know the world changes so fast every day right now. A month ago I would said, yeah no problem because we seem like we were trending in the right direction and then we're sitting here right before Halloween in October and it's like. I, don't we're not going to go walk down again I think we saw doesn't really help anything but that doesn't mean state governors can't do whatever they want inside their state. So you're betting on, we're going somewhere else I think. So Yeah Yeah, I think there will be too much uncertainty and even if they could pull it off, they're going to have to know by like. January. February like they're going to have to know where we're going because they have to walk these stadiums down availability. Wise probably before then I know that's why we're getting schedule now is they finally walked in those stadiums. They have a financial obligation when those stadiums now that they can't get. Their deposits gone. So at some point, if they go with California that same thing's going to happen or they gotta go to Saint Louis or they signed with Tampa or they gotta sign with wherever so I don't know when that timeframe is the let's just say were two and a half months out. Let's say that's the same timeframe for those other stadiums. Let's say it's three months they're to have to know by January and they're gonNA have to sign those contracts so. We should know sometime I would say December January at the latest yeah. Yeah. I think I'm with you gotTA. Know by December January which we think we do. I don't think California's ready I would if I am Feld, I don't I just don't think I would trust it. If If it's kind of all the same to go somewhere else like you can have success in Nashville you can have success in Tampa. You could have success somewhere else. Then why take such a huge risk of California? Pulling it at the last minute, that would be what I wonder how many so-called people end up going to Glendale in February late February. Five hours hours. Yeah. Well We did we touch or anything and everything was on is that is that? Twenty one, twenty, twenty, one, season schedule drop today. Yeah. For me. It's a little bit of sigh of relief I I knew we knew this was coming but at the same time every step we take back towards having fans of the racism whatever that looks like we're again, we're going to learn a lot today about what that looks like with the the media call they're going to have. But it just feels a little bit more normal when I watch a football game and there's twenty five thousand people at NFL game feels a little bit more normal and I think that's something that everybody wants safely. You know of course, we're still dealing with all this stuff, but we just want some sort of normalcy and when we're all at a race next supercross season and there's people there and were able to somewhat congregate and there's a vaccine and there's a therapeutic and all these things that we hope for. It's going to be a pretty happy day for a Lotta people. Are we going to have people taking vaccines though we know have antibiotics or opinion on the world there will be a lot of people that are known and we both know lots of them but to me I think therapeutics are almost more critical because if you get sick and you have it and you're having a rough time. Even the most hardcore people against it and I'm like I'm not taking back seen. If you're in one, you're going to give me what is going to help me Rhino and that that therapeutic to me is is even more important which we've seen with from desert and regenerate, and these things are working. So that's that's really a positive sign for me. It's all going to go away. November fourth I. Know. It's it's it's a political situation for sure when it comes to the lockdown and the and all of that. But I, just think virus is concerned I. Think if it's proven that there are ways. If you catch this, there are ways to reduce your fatality rate basically down nothing. which is where these things are going. Then, the fear factor comes way down right? It's like you. I don't WanNa compare to the flu that's such a knee or que- thing to do. But if you're like, okay this, this probably isn't fun but they now know how to fix it. Yeah. You know all those things reduced the. Morbidity all those things I think that's just a really encouraging thing that's going to inspire confidence and people to go about living their lives. Yeah. Yeah. We'll see what happens very interesting. But yeah, basically you know the industry the Writers GonNa be posted up in the city for. A week over weekend and go racing and catching three rounds I. Think you're GonNa. See I think you're GONNA see the writers be incredibly careful though. which they should be because he saw what happened horrid proud of this weekend it's not that he's scared of dying or being hospital or any of that. It's missing the radio. That's the problem. Right? So I don't think you're GONNA see much writer engagement like. think dior signings out. Yeah. Autograph sessions at the track out any sort of writer interaction period out. But they have to because if they miss a race series is over. especially, you know especially like and goes to the same thing salt, Lake City you sprain an ankle and you miss a couple rounds. You know what I mean like you're not gonNA ride. So it's GonNa? Be a definitely another true test for these writers to to to get up on in know triple crowns are still coming that says. Moore chiropractors. And series we think we have the two series down as well as far as that goes, it'll be the first five will be east than the next three will be West than West, being Dallas and we'll go from it looks like eight for for that and in a showdown. All right. Interesting stuff for sure will learn more later on from the folks at. Feld. When they do a little media press call and we'll put that out as well as on twitter accounts at racer x online or myself pulp mix but. At least we're going rate JT. That's the big thing. That's exactly where I'm at. All right. Thanks everybody for listening fly racing racer x podcasts presented by Max and rental twenty-one supercross schedule. Thanks for listening. Thanks for listening to the fly Racing Steve. Ba'athist. Show. Don't forget to check out some of our pass shows including motorcross legends such as the. Boy Johnson I looked down my hand was jock. Over to the side, the tenants were jerking weird places and it my biggest disappointment Danny store because that he never said sorry Danny and I were France and we've never talked since Brian Luminous before the five hundred events Dave and I fly to Germany go down the street guard. There's this little shop out the back of the mall factory. We get their cylinders, take them back and you know off we go and you know we're in Nicosia cylinders battery park for a handful of years before anybody ever saw it in production day. In McGill was all you know he did the big pancake thing and he's got the thing. He's completely laying on the gas tank trying to miss his tree and he would have gotten even harder jumped farther if that tree had been, you know if if it hadn't have been there. Came Bob. I love the Guy I don't dislike. Competitive. Sport ever had absolutely one hundred percent my mind I firmly believe that statement I said about these modern day guys in Switzerland Olander Belgium forty five minutes on the same bike you're not beating is crazy. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better nowadays than they were in this fool. So different bikes, different times beasts from the East Damon Bradshaw it got to the point where I didn't WanNa leave home, and once I got to the race I wasn't into it if I wasn't going to give one hundred percent, I'm not gonNA take your money. working-class hero. Definitely an emotional moment for me just thinking to myself. That's it. You know and it's amazing. The stuff that goes to your head in a short amount of time of the things that you know that I was going to miss. A Machine, until you really open yours and you WANNA listen to what they're. San. Like beating a dead horse and I know from personal experience, anybody ever sidney down. Of course everybody did go sit Mitch pay. As to make the money one, as you can sign for money or two, you can earn money I'm a high believer in earning the money. I, think they ride better when they earn the money. Time Jeremy McGrath. So mad like so disappointed. So frustrating that I told pick and I left every point count. Kick myself to the day for not just riding around ten been no problems my and my ego got in the way you know. Neo Show Johnny. That you didn't want to ride and you. Look at it all day I mean I get a chance to test on that I like that era I was in I, really do search Popa maximum the I store, enjoy these and over eight hundred great motocross podcasts.

Just letting me crash at his place overnight Justin Thomas what's up J. T. Much we are. We're back. Is this the prelude to the real version of the show and a couple of weeks god. Let's hope so. It looks good right. I think it looks pretty good. News were hearing. Jt Black people were wondering on my instagram. Where you were the mountain bike. Ride up in Boise Some of US have to work. I am not in the Self employed business. Like yourself where I just drive to Canada on a on a whim so yes I was. I was locked and loaded in my Home Office. It's not a mountain bike Guy Anyway. Just face it you like the road bike. I am not I am not but I also did have to work two things going on. Yeah good point yes. Hopefully we'll talk at the end of this a little bit about the Plan to restart supercars here. What we're thinking as far as going ahead with it but I guess the Moto Fight Club. You Know Rob. I just put this on with our buddy Danny Hartwig who used to be the PR man for supercross. We each and I got to say. Rob Has called me about this idea. Two or three times over the years Rob also got the vintage hot lap thing going at the nationals. He was a big party. Started the pit bike racing at the nationals. Robs and innovator robs a thinker. He's called me with this idea over the years and I'm like yeah sounds awesome. Good luck pulling it off but dammit motorcycle I was pulled off. Rob Actually pulled it off. He did and I don't know how many people outside industry no Vitus and what a mover and Shaker is telling some fans and like no. You've actually heard his voice a million times but announcing outdoor nationals for almost twenty years. Now he's one of the announcers with me at Daytona But he's a longtime parts limit guy. He's an insider's insider. He loves the sport. He's a gossip guy and he's always trying he's always got something on the got some big going. Yes I never heard about this particular thing but yeah five or six other crazy events ideas. I've heard now I heard about this thing. And the original one of the things that he talked about for years was rhino and G. L. He wanted to up Rhino and gl again at some point someday he wanted these rivals and that was part of the deal that the rival race and and he wanted me to come out this summer to summarize where I was going to race another media guy for a rival same here and I'm not going have goggle guys against Goggle guys. Your guys against gear guys right right. Yeah so just always cooking it. Up Man And look I know having watched it. I'm sure there was some people like the audio or they just could not figure out the camera and the last term. That was just really really challenge. The camera not move like it was on a on a tripod. This what point in bringing those nitpicks up is who cares like the fact that they pulled this off with skeleton crew in what twelve days the twelve days I think something like that and I mean you could tell by watching it but it was. It was rob and like these ten dude riders like making it up as they went the fact that they pulled this off and drove across the country. And the social distancing. It could so easily been. Shut down okay. They got eighty percent right but holy crap. That's I didn't think it could be done. Yeah hats off to them. I agree hats off to them. Jt The war production issues production problems at the end of the day JT. It was fine. It was cool. I was down you were. You were a hater saying how I was a hater. We used wage. Now that's just mathis. Jt argument hype will race right. He's been he's been saying this every tax thread like eight or to understand why because I don't think it's going to work. It's not GONNA get they're not gonNA pull this off. I don't think it's GonNa work over and over skeptical at. There's a huge difference between being skeptical. That it's going to happen. Because of Corona virus and being a hater he didn't have a positive attitude about it. That's not what the definition of a hater is. I think it is. It doesn't matter what you think it is. Think the definition of sunshine is You know P- crashing her car but that doesn't mean that's what it is you just you didn't. You didn't seem to be a believer. You give up the do Well I win. I win it twenty four years I win. Your your argument is so stupid. There's not down. Yes I everything. All the arguments for all the audience from throughout history. And will you. Can't you can't argue stupid? There's just no argue yes. I wore you down and I win with stupidity. Whatever whatever takes But no there was some. There were some production issues. Obviously this was a big budget production we would treat it to pieces right but we all know. The constraints that dealt with it was hastily. Put together You know and there were issues like great. You're cutting from cameras and not really following the action. At times we audio reason could not see the could not see the finish line corner like that was like just a mystery it was what about the people swearing off camera talking and raising it just dropping? F boggs left and right Filipo. Yeah Yeah right I just I was like somebody just go. Hey guys just can you shove over thirty feet. So we don't hear it but I also got these guys look and these guys are all like legends. An and they're busy guys and they all drove to Ohio. That was probably the most impressive thing. Jt these guys drove to Ohio. I mean that's pretty cool. I don't know how else you could really do it. Right to get bikes and everything there. But Yeah I think if you look at this in with the right lens that they were doing it for the right reasons. These guys weren't making a ton of money. If any money right so yeah if you look at it with. That aren't skeptical It was pretty awesome. It was you know in the middle of the day for a big part of the country to have some entertainment like that for twenty dollars. Yeah it was a win overall. If you look at it I think as long as you look at it the right way and looked at some of the money's being donate through recovery for the auction -solutely which is cool and I hope the guys did make a little bit of money. I talked to a couple of guys key guys in thing and they think that they're going to make a little bit of money which is cool. There was a huge effort to pull this off for them. So yeah and I think that's the biggest thing for me is that we talked about rob pulling this off and getting it going and good job to Robyn Denny as we said I still amazing these guys all did it like the writer off. Did it to me like driving across the country on a short notice and doing it i. I was more surprised that they all showed up. I'm with Lucy guys. Now you're here. You'RE JUMPING. Oh Sorry Yeah. I yeah that's I just did a rant here that putting on the we'd show here on Youtube trying to get that done today as well look during normal racing times. We've all got complaints. Everybody's jaded someway right. The teams do. This and the promoter should do that of tracks should be like this. Wa Wa when you get this perspective look. These dudes are retired. They all went through the ringer of racing. Good bad ugly injuries disappointments great moments making money. Not Making money at this point to say that they still love dirt bikes and dirt bike racing so much. They're willing to put in this little this much effort to make this little money. Probably none really to me volumes. About how much. How cool is is. I mean we all thought Ryan Villalpando was going into the woods hating dirt bikes. Never to be seen again and the effort he puts in to do these things and consider every one of these other writers. Same Thing Travis. Pastrana probably wakes up in pain and goes to bed. Paint still loves it crashed three times. Strana cash returns yes. Desert Brock fifty nine years old. Still sending it. I could not believe glover was riding that well and doing all those jobs so to just see the joy. These guys have racing for zero dollars and like you said driving across the country and getting tired and maybe getting hurt says a lot about how cool dirt bike racing is. Ivan wasn't adding Tedesco wasn't able to ride woke up on morning of the race not feeling. Well so yeah. It wasn't cold so you know that kind of sucks her Ivan. But they still made made the best of it for all the guys. So it. It Travis. Trap Charles Back Flipping. Wisey four nine good God and he crashed twice three times. Total include the aborted backflip. I'm just like Oh my God restaurant like what? And that's another guy like dude. He's busy he's got a lot of stuff going on travis does and he found time to get up there. You know so I would always love wonder it'd be fun to ask. I don't Steve. Asked still his guy. Think right stills agent yeah I think so yeah it would be fun to Aspen who has been Travis's agent for twenty years. How many huge money things travis doesn't do and how many no money things drivers does do. It's gotta drive him nuts from a business perspective the amount of money that Travis could command for something shows up and does backflip at the campground for yeah he runs Michelin Tyres. He doesn't get any money. He just randy likes randy and Randi gave them gave them tires back in the day in their bodies and he just runs machines randy. Yeah I'm good it. It was pretty pretty good. Show I guess. Jt what are what are some of the highlights for you. Let's go. Let's go that way. Well I think to kick it off the The the national anthem at the beginning with All the riders standing in a circle. And then Travis standing on a ladder wearing an American Jack. Yup Yup. We should start there. That was that was more than I was prepared for things right. Yeah the whole and I'll tell you I was very concerned at the beginning of this once. The racing started in. I will give them Kudos because they didn't waste any time like before I could even get really settled into watch this. They were racing. Yeah Strana were getting after it. So they didn't waste any time but the way those first races were going with Glover's sixty or there and then you got Strana and and you can tell the Pastrana's waiting on him at times. I was like if this goes this way. And it's really obvious that they're not trying. I'M GONNA lose interest pretty quickly right if they are all staged and guys are waiting on each other and and this is how this GonNa go. That's where I was very worried but fortunately it didn't play that way Most of the races were pretty high level of effort in. I did a pretty good job of matching up skill sets and ability level so Yeah Kinda fixed itself. Before it got away I felt like what else When do we talk about Michael? Se by later? Yeah that'll be subject coming up my favorite matchups I don't WANNA say matchups. My favorite moments Jake Weimer almost died. So that was the does that not supermax. We stepped up title sponsor for Weimer Steel and once again it blows up in Mexico face. We just win. Is this going to work for you? I don't know I don't know whether it's straight rhythm wash you will Monster Cup. None of it were getting surgery. He wants to be backed by September. Shire Surgery crispell on a two stroke blow so yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah We. It's not really working at all but yeah Ymer almost bit absolutely. That was that was big. I thought okay go ahead. So yeah like the I like that because it kind of proved that these guys were actually trying and some of it. You just you're like you almost feel bad for some of these guys like you. The the legends race. That went on a few years ago. Went very poorly think. Overall there are a lot of hard feelings after that event I think there were the intentional way of this. Being an exhibition changed at the last second guys really just went for it to try to prove a point and then there were a lot of heart dealings on the back end of that so I kinda wondered if it was gonna go that way because when I was watching those guys going for it I'm like are they going to get pissed like is is win them are standing or any of these guys going to get really upset that a guy like lessee or sites or these guys are riding so hard so yeah that was kind of running through the back of my mind. The whole time was who is trying and who wasn't in. Are they supposed to be trying? Are They not supposed to be it? Seemed like they were all trying. It was good the STRANA glover thing. I guess I'll give you that but everybody else kind of going forward. I like that you know I don't WanNa see. I don't want to see guys waiting for people know if they were going to do that. Oh I was still going to watch. It was gonNa Really Sour for my biggest surprise for me. Was Maybe Bradshaw. We each with his speed. Yeah scrubbing whipping. Yeah What's interesting? When you get these races you forget the very basic math because you you in their prime and you're like you know for example you'll be you'll say Yeah was bradshaw better than Wyndham. Who has the better writer? You think them in their prime and you take the math out of well. Wait a minute there. These guys are coming from totally different. Eras right frees everybody. How good they were at age. Twenty four say and then you forget that. There are massive years differences between ages. But honestly what's even bigger than that and jt? You can probably speak to this how long it has been since you've retired. I mean Bradshaw. Technically he's been retired for more than twenty years now. Ninety seven ninety seven twenty three years since he's erased but I'll I'll tell you what that guy rides show much. Yeah he he rides a lot so okay. That's the one thing. The one silver lining for him is that really the majority of his job now is to do ride days that are sponsored by you know whether it's Jahar racing. Whoever so the amount of hit righty he does over? The last years has probably been higher than most the average person And also track there. What I'm getting at is you're trying to track. You're thinking of the writers in their prime against each other. But that's not really what you're getting. You're getting how long does ABE retired? How much do they ride now? Let's be honest is Ryan sites at the Ryan villa pro level? He wasn't as a racer. But then you're like Philip. Otas been retired for five years sites keeps going and you're trying to mishmash all together now. It's GonNa work so they did a good job like you said. Kind of matching skill sets because most of the races were good despite all the variables that would have had to deal with. I am I am shocked because I did not think it was possible for Ryan sites to lose a race like this also to get ready to be your have your mind blown. Damon's younger than Jeremy McGrath. Yes it's so. Damon is not like nineteen ninety two when Damon was at the peak of his power. He's twenty two years old or whatever like that's what we forget about by maybe younger not even so yeah Damon nineteen mainly for supercross. Titles Damon. Ya Damon's y'all is is the point so right but on the flip side of that I mean Damon is. What did they say? He's forty eight or something like that probably sounds about right. So he's only six years older than Windham which is not a massive difference but Windham was racing in two thousand and thirteen and pressure hired by eight. Yeah so like I said. Do that math figure out. Who's still fast? Yeah it would have been awesome by the way to get to disc out there. Because I'm assuming he writes a ton also he's literally test rider. I so I was most surprised by Bradshaw that for me. What about you which I'll actually go with windham because I mean that guy is definitely not riding a lot. I don't believe he's playing mind games when he says he does a train. I think one of the lines the whole event. I think it was glover that city. He owns twelve planet fitness. James and doesn't use any of the but dammit all like wake up working out he kept having to go race like how many well any of us on this call understand what was going on at night. There are all these wild cards and callouts challenges just like what was in the back just making things up with Ivan being out they had also had an odd number. Writers are probably made up at roundtable with cores lights before. So I'm with you each wyndhams talking and then it's like. Hey you gotta go race you four more tired and then at one point asks for Commercial Free. Did he'd still go out there. Like the whips to scrubs. He was still trying his ass off the try to win like even though you think. Do just just get eliminated. Commit yourself out of your misery. No Man he went for. I was completely completely lost on the rules. And what was going on on either? A three-man final and I'm like what what what I know any of that. So yeah I don't know but who cares I guess in the grand scheme of things but so all right so what was your biggest surprise. Jt MY BIGGEST PRIZE. I'm GonNa say I thought Jake would be better. Yeah me too said Jake would be better. He actually rides. I don't know like you know it's the seasons changing up here. But he rides a ton up here in the summer he would be a little sharper than that. Now he just he just got blue crew and yeah he hasn't written much so you know maybe the next thing brought him down like with everybody else that we seem to be involved. You put should've put your face on his Jersey but no By the way for him it's at a dealer. Is that a coincidence. Without Weimer being on a Yamaha. No no yeah. Yeah kind of kind of done through through to me. Yeah Yeah so yeah. What about the fight? Tv guys they come from these guys. What's going on. What do we know nothing about any of this? Does anybody know anything about it? it's just one of these upstart pay-per-view UFC groups. There are quite a few now because obviously the that whole avenue is exploding. So yeah I don't know much about them but I know there are several zone would be the biggest that I know of but there you know I think they are looking for any sports content at all and yeah there are these these channels rob garden. Come out he got him yeah. They had a video screen everything so well. I can tell you if they if they do this same thing with their UFC. And they're showing the referee in the middle of the knockout It's GONNA get poorer reviews. So let's hope they were doing with some technical challenges or some of the production quality. Yeah yeah the Audio and audio was often and it was super loud anyways. All that stuff was floundering yelling into the MIC. It was it was. It was rough that way but I still. I enjoy seeing the racing. I really shouldn't get lost in the overall no no going in less. He was the favourite. I don't think there's any doubt I mean. The man was racing four supercross last year and then almost when the Canadian national title outdoors so he didn't quite fit in this this bracket with everybody else outside of Sipe Sipe Race Daytona this year. Correct right he writes Daytona. Jimmy the main the main so you know I guess. Now's the time to tackle the stuff. Yeah he didn't get tackled. That was the only thing they at one point. Rv's like why don't you take him out? I'm trying to. I'm trying to Cleveland out. Yeah only thing. The whole show missed talked so much trashing each other an instagram and the fireside chat show about takeouts. Maybe they're going too fast. I think we didn't get any of that. I think it was too fast too dangerous. No one tried to take anybody out. I I thought the whole trash talk thing. That's going off the street rhythm right. That's where it all came from our buddy hammer red bull there started at going and and I thought that worked pretty well this time out. I didn't I'm not buying any of that. Trash talk stuff. I'm like whatever I select whatever you know what I what about. Either one of you. Where either one of you on board with that. I didn't know because like jt. Said like I was on the fence of like will they somewhat fixed this rig this or not like I? I have seen two guys being like. Hey Man is bigger corner. All just come in on you. I wasn't expecting to not happen right right well. The social media pre race stuff trash talk. I I kinda just ignored because it sell. It's out very much red bull straight rhythm to me so I. I really didn't I of just didn't even read the captions or anything. I'd just pretty much pretended it didn't exist so I was kind of. I'm with you on a sort of my my thinking too. So let's see one and pretty good. I mean he was look look good. Looked really good. Had the breathe right on for two lapper. Had the number one Jersey had a preprinted number one jersey that I was like okay. Is that from the Canadian nationals. No he were Fox all summer there so the one and so. I'm like okay. And then he wrote supercross Leeann but maybe wouldn't have pre printed. He got a number. One Jersey for the motorbike club event printed beforehand and that is a that is a source of people who were there of much amusement much amusement. Oh yeah if I worked for the. Nsa I can promise you that I would have already hacked. Tony's phone Mike's phone in every Jehovah's phone everyone associated with that just to read it for my own enjoyment. I don't I wouldn't use it for anything but just to read the behind the scenes texts and emails that were going around in the week leading up to that event because the level of seriousness today took for this event. There had to be an incredible urgency preparation that went on for this. There was let me just tell you that. At the event from what I gather there was a lot of people going. What WITH THE JERSEY? It's got to see. I mean good job for Mike at but it's still that it's just I it's the wrong application for all that effort right and people like you WANNA national title. I just yeah I didn't care. I had zero effort or anything in this but if I was there I would. I would have been shaking my head at minimum. They never they never stop which they don't stop it was I. I should've I should've seen this coming a little bit better because I did think I'm like okay. Who are the three guys that probably ride the highest level? The most now it was disco test rider. Supposedly he goes really good. Still in supercross track sites who is not retired and Mike. Who's pretty much still not retired? I don't know exactly what this racing plans are. But I'm like really. Those are the three serious still racing guys but I should have. I don't know why. Why did they not take into account? That none of these guys would be like Whatever site soda to stroke? It wasn't necessarily a better bike. He just wanted to do something cool. Why do they not take that into account that the he's will always be the unless they're going to try really hard and under any normal circumstances that is great like it's it's competition they take every inch they can get away? Sports are supposed to be but I should have realized. That is a huge x factor. When you're going all out I mean he was probably I think it was alluding to in his speech right. He was testing. I think for this women's to win. Add come out. He was testing. The patients. Have all the other riders? There I can tell you that. Yeah and I can't. Here's the thing right you can. Not If you had to go to court in front of a jury and explain what's wrong with or what's different. It's hard to put a finger on it. Yes he took out. Tedesco STUDENT IS AND FIT to kill switch. That was obvious. He took out brock tickle. That was obvious but a lot of these things. He was riding really hard to take it seriously. But it's not like when Filipo was out there. Ville Laporta was not trying. There's just something different than I can't put my finger on about like yeah but it's a little tongue in cheek for these guys and it was clear that they were like we're here to win. This see I'm good. I'm good with the effort on the track. I'm okay with that like RV. Rv was going for two. He was he was not holding back the effort the effort on the track. I'm one hundred percent fine with. It's all the other stuff it's taking it. Ultra serious. It's arguing about starting devices really arguing. You know okay so yes give me some evidence I put front of. The of lie was different when you there was an argument over starting devices. Yes when you're going you are you know In a serious argument slash debate conversation when someone suggests you know one you start devices and you are very angry about that. There should be no anger period at the savell like anger should be disallowed from young at this event I it's just a lot of those things. A having a preprinted number on Jersey may exhibit number two Having a breathe right strip on for a three lap. Main event is exhibit number three Just all those things. I just think it was just bit overdone. And just hearing you know we all here through the rumor mill. The the tone of the approach was just way way over the top. Well because some guys showed up without devices and then they're like we don't have them so nobody in your so. Nobody Racing Wisey Four. Ninety guys are switching bikes by the way which is not allowed. They're handing each other's by between race. That's not allowed in racing. Yeah we had horrible starts because Wyndham is like yeah. I had to start device but they told me I could use it and I haven't done a start without a star device out. Who knows but he just did it. That's what jt shrug and you go on with it. You don't have a debate about start device but but you printed a Jersey with number one on it yes and I mean this storyline is lost on. No one right that this comes down to the villa. Porto Alexi rival is as storied is as talked about is as referenced as any rivalry in this sport and the fact that it turned out they ended up one two and they went to head to head many times and Mike beat him each time. Every time I is that that irony coincidence. Whatever it's not lost on anybody. They needed millsaps unless it's what they needed. I mean from what I gotTA. That's the most spirited amateur rivalry ever. Do you guys feel like this was. This was the big chance to undo. All of the hurt through the you know way to thousands like we lost all the titles but we can fix it right here. This moment we can undo all of it. I don't WanNa go that far. I'm here. I'm kidding I'm just saying yes I well. I just wanted to be clear that we don't like I think they don't. This is just the way they race like. It's probably think that though. Jt You know that. But that's what I struggle with so badly as is if I'm a therapist and I'm sitting in my chair and I'm talking to someone on the couch and I'm saying we've come so far. We have come so far with the fifty percent less crazy and then. I feel like we just went right back. All in one fell swoop with the motorcycle. We went right back. That's that's where that's what. I'm so bummed about look. I'm the guy that talks about. How you get labeled partying Temecula. When you know you're not even like like like perceptions are oftentimes not the not the truth right and you get this in a vacuum. What I'm saying is like the fact that I alone talk to four people either on the phone or text morning. Text message this morning and it was all started with the number one Jersey for different people for different writers. For different industry. People like their routers slash industry people. Everyone wants to talk about this. No one is getting together to talk. It's unanimous everyone's like. Did you see this? Did everyone see that? Like like no one is like saying man. That's cool everyone's like what's so yeah. I don't we don't want to be careful here. Did Not Bury those guys. Because I don't think that they're trying to do this. I don't think they set out with this. Vindictive plan right. It's just it's just who they are it's just gonNA are. I agree like I said I. I know that there are some fans out there. They're like oh he's trying to take all the frustration Filipo. That's in the past lessees. I believe even the fields in the pastor not bitter or mad about that that Filipo one more a pro. Yeah I just think if there is a race the unless we're going to try as hard as they can work every angle. It's the way they always have been always will be and ninety nine point. Nine percent of the competitions. You're in that's fine is this just happened did not but by but but the legacy newsletter with comp is very steep like the car com. Dan Glover when we had the Walker Fowler Jersey Gate that we referenced on this podcast we said who would be the one writer that would wear a number one jersey to erase and the answer was Michael. Esi and I feel like this is proof right. Yeah the one that would make a number one Jersey Guy. Lucky look good and has everyone shaking their heads involved in the event that the number one jersey. That's a fact so anyways. Yeah it was awesome. Yeah it was it was it was. It was cool. I was stoked did it. So were mistreat is like J. Law was approach said no McGrath fro both turned it down. Rc turned it down. Any regrets from those guys for doing that either. So I don't think so I mean look thing was you're either enter your out like it was obviously a lot of work. There wasn't any money be made. The thing was Super Jackie and honestly might not have we keep saying. There's no money to be made. These guys are GonNa make money. I talked to a couple. They're going to make money Right okay terrible element there is there is but they're gonNA make a little bit of money for their time and effort other. Ymer YMER and RV DROVE THIRTY HOURS RIGHT. Or whatever so you. I don't know if the I don't know if it's actually should I say okay? In that case or you know for the effort the put in maybe they're making ten grand apiece. That's I don't think they're making ten grand apiece so okay. Maybe they're being paid for their time. But I don't think it's a money making venture for anybody so at that point. I mean look. Do you really know twelve days in advance when you get the call if your Grad their fro like? Is this even going to happen? It's in middle of nowhere. What if you drive all that way and it gets shut down like I? There was a fear that there was a real fear of a shutdown. Yeah Yeah right right right so I could see. It'd be very easy to be like. This is a bit of a risk and I'm just going to be on the fence for this one so I don't think when you look at the risk involved even though it did work you could easily see how it couldn't have. I don't think it should regret not being in it because there a chance. It was fifty fifty disaster. I think. Jt Your you say no either no regrets for those plus No. I don't think so. I think it went off as I think you. As long as the event went off I think it went off as they thought it would so I had already kind of made their decision right it it was. It went off as expected. So yeah they. They probably had either prior engagements or didn't have a bike. Or you know. There's a Lotta complications or they just didn't want to travel across the country in the middle of the corona virus pandemic right so sure they were. Will it be another fight? Club can is this something. That's sustainable jt. It's interesting because I think there will always be a desire to watch legends like that ride but the big question is if you held this in the middle of the season would anybody care comparatively to erase with Tomac and rocks these guys on Saturdays Right. So put it on a weekend off though. Yeah maybe I think if you do it if you do it. It has to be unlike October November. Maybe December there's nothing else going on because if you try to do in the season I just think there's too much other entertainment going onto to really get the audience you need for it. I've always thought something like this could work. I don't know about the match racing but just a legends race on a Tamer track. You know bring out to make a rule all onto strokes are all on this bike like. That's one thing I would change in the future for. This thing does make them all the same bike. Whatever that is whenever you want same same type of bike that that's what I would do but I I've always liked there's A. There's a seniors tour golfing. There's a there's a tennis legends tour and tennis. I've always believed in its concept wage. I think it can work. I think so but it's really hard to measure. This was a success. I feel no doubt about it. This worked but it is taking place in the most bizarre environment that we're probably ever going to experience in our lives. There was no other racing of any kind going on. And I don't know if it's just lost in the shuffle off the full you gotta get people to pay nineteen dollars. Ninety nine cents when most racing is free. I don't I don't know if this is what it worked because of this environment. I do not know I'm not saying it couldn't but I'm just saying I don't have the answer if this could work if only work because of the press okay see. I can work on a weekend off. You know maybe in the fall. Jt Center. Or whatever I think this can work again I really yes. You can have the race and it can be cool but the thing that unlocks it is. You've got to get enough people to spend nineteen dollars ninety nine cents. While I'm always the guy yelling about the people complaining about the goal past money so I maybe not the right guy to say but to me I pay the twenty bucks. It was well worth the twenty bucks to me that it was. It was worth twenty bucks but boyd. Enough people feel that way if there's thirty six of racing isn't isn't that part of the circumstances right we'd pay anything to watch racing tackling. Exactly okay. I don't think you can take this as a win. Only because this is the wildest circumstances ever I mean dude when you Steve when you go to Geneva and you go to Paris everything everybody's like our work and I watched like free like there's what is probably twelve weekends a year where there's literally nothing these guys need twenty bucks and the reason they need twenty bucks. 'cause yes and there was a production here need some budgets production somewhat of production and you need some budget can have it. Where enough sponsors come on board and it's free to watch that then maybe the pay per view thing. I mean it's for all these fight. Tv or disown at JT talking. It's a leap of faith for anyone can we? Can WE GET Gallagher and a referee in actual referee shirt black and white stripe referee shirt to. Can we got that going forward? Gallagher is there no? I'm saying that's an idea. We can take motorcycle up to are racist. Real Ref the real referee Jersey. So that's one of Zemun Longtime Rabbis and Eric Bernard Right. Hand man get stuff done. I'm shocked. Trevor. Vines is not involved in its production at all but maybe he was behind the scenes. Well Hey can we talk about this? Look Rob did a great job. We are appreciative. Erupted for ROB. How giddy Must Robin Right? It was like he got all these guys to basically come to his backyard. Have his vision. His buddies running the event. Like the great like Hey. I'm going to hold a big race in Winnipeg. He guys driving and Timmy's common equate easily. Bradshaw right off the guys. That's a great point. Christmas camera overall bias. Yes yes Robert Dunn Point. No I was fine. Could five cents of banners? Jt since steaks and banners anything. I don't say an official sponsor so I think that's part of the okay all right. We'll be modified club to which I believe there will be. I think so too. I think so too yeah. Jt Yes I don't know if we'll have the same cast of characters but yes I think there will be. Will YOU DO Picone Michael Picone. Would I raise mccomb? Yeah I sure I would. I don't think I would really be invited to something like that but I definitely would. Would YOU PRINT JERSEY? Yes but not with the number one on okay all right. Yeah now. Some good racing. I was pulling for Brad. Daymond now is good and you know I did a podcast with by the way to weed and you'll appreciate more than jt. Will how about the promotion. That these guys are doing I had Wyndham texting me. I had a I had stanton andbranch. I mean these guys were. It was incredible to work with them. Yes it was same thing on my account as well because I was hitting up Bradshaw and I think I'm hitting probably while he's doing a podcast with you on my. Hey can I do an interview with you and fraud? And he's actually driving Friday and I'm like well six then because he doesn't have to drive as far he's like no no no no no. I'll do it. I'll do whatever it takes. How does it work? Yes these guys were all in. I mean I did a forty five minute long interview with RV on Wednesday like all in. Yeah they were. They were incredible work with JT. It was it was amazing. Kevin Wind up does a text me a lot because you're wondering but me either like I feel like once these guys started leaning on you. Then you start calling me a hater because before the insight you're really into it. No I was fine with it. I was cool with it. I I don't want to expose other texts things you said Jt. I'm not going to do that too. Okay there were other things said and that's fine. Whatever you want me to expose the things that you texted about it no I don't know I don't think I don't think there was one negative text for me about this event. I was all board the very beginning. There was well. I think I was with you. The very beginning JT. I thought these guys are going like wait for each other and stage it that way and like Mike was actually going. Rv actually going to stand on. Mike's bike and grab kills twitter. I'm like come on stop you got. I thought it was going to be on pit bikes. Yes I did. Yes I did because that fits rob bydesign. Emo We tried correct bikes relented does he? He loves the PIT BY AND AT ONE POINT. I believe there was. He was working on December. They raced in Chicago at the NASCAR PIT bikes. They did this year he was planning on having a big a big hit bike race during the weekend between supercross and the nationals which was going to be around this time so at first. I thought I'm like oh he's already got something in. The works changed the formula. Little bit went too big bikes and two strokes and four ninety S. Yeah Yeah who is rod or you WanNa see in this thing next year which good question Thinking about it. I'll go. I'll go the guys I WANNA see. Almost were all their. Jeremy would be a good one. Obviously anytime you get. Mci racing would be pretty sweet. But I'M GONNA go off the board a little bit here and I'll go guy cooper. I was off the board. Yes because coupe is a showman and see Guy Cooper. He rides a lot still. He'll send it absolutely. He'll do something crazy. So I'll go off the board and go Guy Cooper jt. I'M GONNA go with I'm going to go with MILLSAPS. Actually you mentioned the robbery thing. But that's not necessarily why I think he's in the sweet spot of how recently he raced and I mean look we've all talked to Davy millsaps. Millsaps believes that himself he would. He would want to do well. I feel in an event like this. He's got great history. A lot of these guys are his generation. He's raised a lot of them and over and over window. Melissa Volpato so that would be. That'd be cool and I honestly the most you know who is the most missing guy from this is done but did they. Even I'd never being mentioned I guess how can you? How can you not go to well? I guess it's UNICORNS. Yeah may say. I want money tree in my backyard. Right I don't know I don't know he's been he's been around this year he is not going to for race. That's not happening. I don't sure whatever amount of money they're making sure yes to. Yeah but yeah. You're saying we're Australia for one. Hundred grand don't reach reach for the stars right. Set Your goals high. Let's go to the man who told the one hundred Grand Australian guys now. I'm out I'm told them for one hundred and eighty. He told him he's out. And meanwhile he went to this thing for five curve but that is why we all love. Our re wasn't his agent. Then no no always open said. Myrtle always open. They're like seven eleven.

Thank you for providing entertainment. Thank you everybody for that before we go. Let's touch on supercross. A little bit. May thirty-first was the proposed plan and honesty guys It's all over the map right now. I'm surprised we don't have an announcement. The Arizona Governor came out and said sporting events are fine to go in Arizona last week. I got a call from an insider attacks from an insider said Glendale off. I asked a couple of team owners. They said what? Glendale is still the plan. And I'm like Oh so this happening and not the text back would be like well. I don't know it's all over the place guys. Come with some information here. But I'd seems like were supposed to hear today. Oh God no I mean. I don't know that that's happening but I did hear from people that there was a call today and things were happening today and On your text message right at this moment you may see some more information to The things are happening literally as we record this. Well we what do we know? We don't know anything do we? What do we know Lilia interesting because that news about Arizona Raking today? I think it might be too late. Yes because everything I was hearing was that they had already built up. Plan B. Plan C. And I think a little bit at the request of the teams. Like hey man if you're going to tell us a date. Why don't we try to make that data solid as possible? So why don't you work on two or three different cities? So we're not all hanging on to Kobe in Arizona changes which this could change at five minutes. Entire plan runs aground. So I'd heard Houston hurt. Saint Louis Florida could have been an option or could be an option for several reasons. Eighth eldest there. I don't know really. How much factor that is but Florida has been pretty ironically in this situation right pretty liberal with their policies which would make them liberal. The way we divide things politically but bottom line is Florida seems to be leading more things. Go so I thought that could be an option too so I think all we know is that tape is still looking good. I think now it's more of a location than a date situation accurate. Yeah I agree but I feel I feel like we need to get a notification a notice. Pretty soon. We're to two weeks out from people you know. Look flights hotels flights. GotTa do all of that right. Not Not so much the team so much the media and fans but the team's and everybody else so. I mean look us. We have any idea if we would even be allowed to go to these. I do not know I assume my I if they're doing a thousand person cap. I think there's a chance but we'll see no fans for sure and yeah. I guess we'll see what happens. I heard from Africa for that. They were going to. Do you know one one guy supply of photos so all the all the media so that was making me thinking that the media people such as myself. We were going to be allowed to go if there's only one photographer so but yeah what do whatever it takes. May I mean look NASCAR starting up we had? Ufc my wife's going back to work here in Nevada next week. Got The call. She's in retail. So it must be something going on there well Vegas The first hotel is treasure. Island opens on the twenty second. So that's starting as well so it seems like may thirty could work for an event with no fans like things could go okay so and then we'll just raise the finish and we talked about the nationals. What does that make the national starting in July yeah The current day truly have changed because they got pushed essentially saying the nationals star. July fourth weekend to accommodate for supercross starting may thirty first. So isn't that sticks. Then everything else does too now. Let's be honest. I still think there are huge hurdles. That have to be crossed to be able to run outdoor national. Just like supercross. That's the date. I don't know how reliable that is. And they've been pretty consistent saying they have to have some fans maybe not a full House. But they've got to have some fans a big experiment is they had a day at high point last weekend. Which was really done to test out. Some of these social distancing with riding and racing things trying to come up with and then damn all hell or high water. They run in. Gnc Georgia this weekend with all these rules again. Play so I mean I know how this works. They're kind of using each event. I think as a springboard you don't necessarily need spectators at GNC so it's like we had a ride day. Then we had a race. Can we have a full entertainment type? Event like an outdoor national. I think it's all build up to that so you're closer but dude you can't assume anything right now. No No I. It's odd that we don't have a location locked in you know but for Super Gospel. Yeah hopefully I'm going to tell everybody like July fourth date for the nationals. I know that makes it obvious. Oh sweet it's going to start at Red Bud. That's not going to be the case. I can tell you that much because really the whole issue supercross motocross dealing with is it state by state. It's literally county by county and if you follow any of the news you know. Michigan for example has been one of the more restrictive. Don't get me started go. Jt So red bud being the first race like the one. That's going to open up. First Michigan. Probably not likely. And you're not allowed to leave your house in that state. I wouldn't either. Their freedoms was I'd be scared of Swiss. Core guys like that all right so yeah may thirty-first we think US three think it's GonNa Happen. We don't know where but we think it looks good to start supercross back on that day and and that'll be interesting race to the finish for sure for told my rocks and everybody so that they have. It's anyone know by the way. Has anyone heard it all if they get bonuses if this were to end without any more races isn't really a literally a million dollar question. Anyone know I'd like to know about the RJ Hampshire situation clear that up that'd be great so yup wage. I would bet you if it's if it is a an official championship like officially declared a champion. I would assume legally they would be entitled to bonuses. Yes you don't think there's some sort of force majeure or like you know force of God. Active God thing medicines not valid only ten races which reduce your odds or something I think only they only if d came out and officially announced the series incomplete. That's where I would I would guess. Yep I honestly think the difference might be also like I think. Jt know more about this than me. Some of the bonuses are insurance policies and some are just paid right odds something I think. Most of them are just paid nowadays. Because the premiums are so high I would say that then increases the chance that you would get your title bonus because I could see if you're Lloyd's of London. You probably have a million different asterisk there and only got to complete sixty percent of the races. And do you really. Do you really want your athlete to now. Sue You for your championship bonus. That's great yeah yeah so I think if it's if the team doesn't have insurance I think that really helps the chances that they would get their championship bonus and the only reason I ask is because I mean that changes the paradigm a little bit. I mean ally has said the right things he wants to earn it and I'm sure he does but I mean can you imagine what a bummer that would be if they're like it's called and it doesn't count and you don't get the bonus and you're doing everything right? He would like to do it in seventeen but I'm sure if they can't do seventeen he would like to still get the bonus. Yeah kick in the nuts Gets NITA so? Let's hope the next time we reconvene. We'll we'll have some real super cross talk about out that'd be great. It's crazy to imagine that it could be weeks away. It's and then we'll just be doing review pods like every other day because they're going to raise three times a week so it's going to be so good it's GonNa be me unbelievable pulp amax Fantasy also picking right up going to be rather hectic to the to the end. So hey by the way I came on your damn fantasy show before indy. And you gave me all these tips. And how the game is supposed to be played and there hasn't been a race since it was before indy. It never happened. None of this stuff took place. We'll get you back on to talk about how you don't know how anything works tuned up ready to have my first good solid week. Ever and the race never happened. Nothing GETS JT more upset than you talking. About how fantasies dumb and makes no sense when it really does make sense you just refuse to learn right right four guys make top ten double points in the main horrible weekend off with these stupid algorithms all right well. Hey listen thanks again to the motorcycle guys. Good job everybody involved in that for. Put It on Thank you fly racing and racer x rental. Cbd and of course folks at Weeds jt thanks boys. Extra listening to the fly racing Steve. This show don't forget to check out some of our past shows including motocross legends. Such as boy. I look down on my analyst. Chuck over to the side. The tenants were jerking in weird places and the biggest disappointment. Danny store because that he never said sorry to Danny and I were France. And we've never talk since before the five hundred events Dave and I fly to Germany. Go down the stood guard. There's this little shop out the back of the mall. Factory we get their cylinders. Take them back off. We go and you know we're in Nicosia. Cylinders is battery park for US handful of years before anybody ever saw in production. Dave Miguel was all the big pancake thing. And he's got the thing he's completely lay on the gang to miss his tree and he would have gotten even harder jumped farther is that she has been you know. Been there okay. I love the Guy I don't this I think he's the greatest competitive sport ever had that absolutely one hundred percent in my mind. I firmly believe that statement. I said about these modern day guys in Switzerland or Belgium forty five minutes on the same bike. Gaffey Roger you crazy. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better nowadays than they were in this fool so different bikes different times. Beast from the East Damon. It got to the point where I didn't WanNa leave home and once I got to the race I wasn't into it. I wasn't going to give one hundred percent not gonNA take your money working-class hero. Henry definitely an emotional moment for me just to myself. That's it you know. It's amazing the stuff that goes to your head and short amount of time of the things that you know that I was going to miss machine until you really open yours and you wanNA listen to what they're saying like beating a dead horse and I know from personal experience beneath ever sit down. Of course everybody did Mitch Payton. There's two ways to make the money one is. You can sign for money or two. You can earn the money. I'm a high believer in earning the money. I think they ride better when they earn the money. So in time. Jeremy McGrath mad like so disappointed. So frustrating said it pulls pitch and I left every point count. I could kick myself to the day for not just writing pants. Been no problem my ego got in the way you know. Show Johnny Depp. That you didn't even WANNA ride. And he just wanted to look at it all day. I got a chance to test all that. I liked that Air I was in. I really do search Popa. Maximum tune store to enjoy these and over eight hundred. Great Motocross podcasts.

I watched saturday morning before super cost. It's jason what's up. Yeah we got you going. There were a lot of questions off a lot of texts. I think pique your interest. I was into it. I thought it was cool. There was there was a girl winning their kristen. Beat was there ricky rachman. Was there like a lot of things going on exciting. Yeah and there's a lot more of a motocross tie in the before Bribe and jared jeremy's who were the two top guys were both trained by baker actually so they're pretty Tied in insiders Much more than the people would probably realize. So that's pretty cool. And we had in the pulp show last year at some point when holly was here and was really cool. Nice got so. Jim stoked totally. Jimmy take the whole thing as usual also on the line from flyer racing. Flat racing dot com. This man was actually at bell is three unlike wage and myself. It's jason thomas what's up. Jd now much just. Apparently i just wanted more than you guys do. I don't know what else to say. Yeah i can't really dispute that. I looked at the schedule. Two weekends off then thought to myself. I didn't go to dallas three three weekends off. And i and i was pretty stoked on that so we dark side. Yeah really the only lone soldiers in the press box we you'd be making your return to any races at any point. Yeah i think. I'm gonna go to all three of these atlanta's it's just too good to be true like they're right down the road You can take cova test and you know. Maneuver your way around that Stuck there for ten days to the press box somewhat by myself so yeah i'm in for atlanta. How about that. I like it. I like it. Hey another more. Flashback stuff before we get going. So the mission tortillas they sponsored by case to deal with them out great sponsor like a five thousand dollar dash cash or something. That's right yeah five thousand per race. Where that i believe. There's eighteen races having teen races so good amount of money. Yeah outside sponsors. Progressive insurance Tone up for the media day for flat track last week and they had a huge bag of mission tortilla so we have been eating case of is three meals a day breakfast case ideas. You name it. 'cause i got so many free tortilla that's great. Sounds like heaven to be honest. Yeah but you wanna ship you some. Jt a former life. I would have been making a trip to north carolina or i would have just been reaching up contact with over at the mission tortilla. Come yeah so obviously someone mission used to race flat track or something you know i thought so however i also happen to see on twitter over the weekend like some indycar has got like mission. The title sponsor so there must be some overall racing. I got a bag of mission tortilla chips. Also like like nacho chips and their indycar shaped wow mission tortillas. I know me and my unique shape tortilla chips. If you remember yes yes that's true you're all in. Yeah yeah ships in We lived in. Houston yeah yeah absolutely. No i do remember that it was it was phenomenal. I this podcast. On pause while i go call mission tortillas either interested in sponsoring an internet radio show. So that's really what you were getting at with. Can we get mission. Tortilla and supercross gave five thousand dollars to the race winner to see some sort of three lap battle. Can we do that now. Be great literally had care care. The flat track guys when five k. For two laps people and think about that that that's about five k. What's that purse jt. Third i don't know man. I honestly don't have i would think it's more than that five caves probably about what the leader the winner. Max okay. so that's the same as winning two supercross for two laps. A flat track race from mission tortilla. Let's do it signing up. You gotta asterisk there though. Okay justin cooper made a lot more than five thousand dollars over the weekend and you're also just speaking for their budget to god no problem. Let's do this. We already signed on the volt show already mission. If john boehner flagging till they see super cost do they do they know about it. I mean i know where it's just the bonus the factory bonuses which are a thing that most motorsports are probably jealous of I don't know. I mean they factory indian motorcycle team. I'm sure there are some sort of win-bonus. But i'm wondering if you put five grand on the line would do to the top level care. The factory would probably be like yeah. They're not racing missing the the largest part of this whole deal The fact that they're willing to pay five thousand a weekend to the rider is literally nothing in the grand scheme of what it would cost to be to have the right to pay five thousand dollars to the winner of the heat race. Pay flat track some money to the right they understand. Thank you are underestimating. The difference in there. Yeah i'm aware that mission tortilla is probably aware that there's a fee to be involved to have five thousand dollars autograph. Yes no problem. Five grand. But i have a little bit of insight as thanks for bringing us jt. I really thought that my my stuff on the on the wrap up show is going to bring mission tortilla in. I really thought that was going to happen. It felt that way. Okay aren't moving on. Wrap up show. Yeah the wrap up show literally. That's what it was going to be dark side. Pony bringing the mission money if you if you wrap it up in admission tortilla well so speaking to the press box dark side kept. Did you see. Kevin kelly their jt. I did yeah just very briefly right before the night. So i don't i don't think he was there all day I saw him at around. I guess it would have been around six thirty But i i was in and out of the talks all day. And i was the first time i saw him. Yeah so my buddy. Kevin kelly of the radio original instill best. He was announcing freestone all week and he decided i want to say in texas one day one more day. I'll go to supercross. So i got a text or like one o'clock saturday like hey you here. And i'm like where he's like arlington and i'm like dude. Nobody's there and he's like what and then later on. I'm in the press box. There is no one here. And i'm like the job. Glad you pasco tests got your credential. Got it all dial dart side. There was one other guy. Yeah yeah it's it's not a lot of fun to cover the racist if you're wondering listen. We don't do this for fun. It's not just you know we work really hard. We have to be there at the races for sixteen hours and it's not easy a lot of fun in two thousand twenty one people. Put that out there. So i think it's okay. Yeah well great. So thanks to fly racing by the way for coming on board this motorsport dot com cobo links rent maxis all onboard with this good track. We had a good track. Jt looked really cool. You know anytime you guys can go five in a rhythm section and the wolves were good. A sand section was giving them some problems Very very Unique well not unique but very very good track originally. Yeah you know. It was just funny because we were going back and forth on twitter and he was getting a lot of feedback and stuff with the track conversation. And you know i have to take a victory lap because i know this is what they're capable of and i really am. I try to be careful as you guys know i. I really try not to be controversial especially when it's sheldon bald or critiquing or criticizing things. They do But i really felt like the track for arlington one and two especially to were crap. I i didn't like him. I didn't think there was much thought into it into them. There was no passing. There was all of this switchback stuff which really disallows passing. All the way around there was no way to go through the rhythm section other than really the main line and then all of a sudden. It's just like oh. Yeah we remember how to build a check in arlington. Three is the best track. We've seen all year so you know. That's i guess why i get so frustrated is they're they're absolutely capable of it. This wasn't some sort of magic dust that they sprinkled on it. You know. I don't know what the difference is if it's intentional or not. But this track was awesome all kinds of different stuff. It was really difficult to woo tough. You could jump through rhythm section differently. The sand was tricky. Like i loved everything about it. You know look look really good. And it was what i wanna give. Jt that victory lap. Because i didn't. I thought this track couldn't be done like this. Mythical build rhythm lanes where you could go two or three ways and they're similar in speed but it can rewarded if you get it right. I'm like yeah that sounds good. That sounds good. Sign me up. It just can't be done so you can. I'll take all these mud race victories. But i will give you. This one hardcore was wrong. I didn't think this could be done. It was awesome. But we've seen it. We've seen them at glendale. We've seen them different places. We've seen great tracks with all the things that jt just talked about. I mean it can be shown. I mean when you say it can't be done like we've seen this from a number of years from great tracks and i write about him every week and i'm like look at this something that only a few guys can do. Look at these. What's happening anomaly. You know why can't be more common. You know if we get if we get a a terrible one here and there i get. It can't be winners. You know every once in a while you're just gonna get one that doesn't work for man. Could you imagine how much better the series will be if we got tracks like this every week. I just everything about it. The practice sessions the racing. There was intrigued about the rhythm. Section guys were screwing up you know. And it didn't have to be a huge crash to be a mistake guys who just miss a rhythm sexual lapping to lose two or three seconds like that. That completely changes the face of the racing. You know i just loved it. I just often happens that infrequently i is it is magic. It's like it's such an unbelievably carefully like it all has to happen on accident. You can't plan it that way but you're thinking. Jt you can. It can happen more than three times in the last five years. What a question is why right the more common. You know like it did. It didn't seem like they pull the rabbit out of their hat. it was just the jumps. Were bigger there. Were more options. In in you know in a nutshell. I really felt like this track for one. Lived up to the capability of the motorcycles. These guys are riding these days. There are so many track built where everything is jumped within a lap and a half. And everybody's like oh okay. Well got struck throughout my. You know. I mike half throttle biggest rhythm section on the track. This track looks like it was built for modern day. Life like you could jump huge stuff. Like bill triple triple quad. Five like you could just pull out the biggest stuff ever if you're willing to try it and you just don't see that very often. Who's the first guy you saw the rhythm over the table The i i missed part of the. I four fifty a session so when i came back to the first time session those guys all started going three three on three offs three end of the corner and that was really the one that i was the most intrigued by the other stuff. I didn't think was all that crazy. Like going over the table top. Kind of like yeah. They're going to do that because they were already jumping onto the table. Top and the penalty for casing. It was nothing like you were just bounce off like no big deal. So i kind of expected that when i was much more impressed by the trip on trip trip like that to me was was what i was wanting to see. Guys do not want to tell mar was no penalty. I think it was that one. Well i got. Yeah and i think it was more. He wasn't expecting it. But i watched rocks and do that. I watched tomac dude. I watched all these guys tastes it basically and no big deal but yeah i mean. I think if you're going to expect anything unlikely to happen it's probably mardi anyway But yeah i like Dark side a couple of guys with man. I dunno if you could go over to the table. And of course they will like they're. They're barely hitting the jump to go onto the table top and then they're going to be able to double out if they go to the downside so yeah they're they're definitely going to go for it. I think that's that's also just years of experience being out there too. I i i can. I think i just have a little bit more perspective than a guy like dark side right. Who's never been in that scenario I can just put myself in their shoes a little bit more. Well we've been saying rocks in these to win big race blah blah blah. Look he he had the start he was taking off. It was a technical track which rewards a guy like him. Who's very precise this was it. This was that he had to get those three points from coup. Who had had bad heat race and he couldn't do it he couldn't do it and color me. We know shocked. I very surprised that web caught him. Well it really comes down to the heat race. I think more than anything That he writes with shocking. Look i feel like people are the fans in general. I don cooper weather don't believe is won over the fans you could actually hear on. Tv when he went down at six to knock him down. It just happened. But either way i think roxy got close iraq's and pass them sexton past him i could hear on. Tv with the limited capacity crowd. Even how excited people were. And you're like well. This is really something like they had his number. And we know that webb's usually able to rally and figure out a way out of it. But it's like how is it going to get out of this one like the whoops the rhythms rhythms and it whoops section. They completely covered. You're like how is he gonna wiggle out. And i think that's exciting because i think a lot of people are fans and be everyone's rooting for the series to just be closer right. You're almost always hoping the guy second in points beats the guy first and points just to make it exciting so you. I felt like that was palpable. Like tonight's the night kenny's going to get back. We're gonna go into the break two weeks to think about it kenney still in it i as impressive as web has been in the past doing this to me. This might have been the most impressive turnaround. I did not see this coming but dude about three laps into the main when roxanne wasn't pulling away anymore. I'm like son son of a gun. He's going to do this again. Yeah yeah he. He's a gamer. As what our buddy phil. Nicolosi was texans last night and when the chips are down you'll make it happen and he just kind of slowly caught kenny. And so yeah. Jt this thing was was six. He was sixteen down and now he's seventeen or do i have that backwards. He's fifteen eighteen hours up. He was sixteen now. He's fifteen up in a five six racist. It's it's incredible. Yeah and just the matter though momentum. Good i think speaking to this one event you know to me yes. I was very concerned with what was going to do for the night. You know i thought okay this. This track isn't working out for me. Really just didn't look like he kind of had it all day I know you guys. Don't get to see every rapper practice but he just seemed more hesitant than normal. And even ricky in the booth which is kind of santa k. Just doesn't look is competent as normal. You know And then the heat race goes quarterly. And you're kinda scratch your like man you're gonna get some points back here and all the things that we needed to. But when he when he pulled that start out of that bad rut because the right was pretty nasty and he's in second on the first lap and then you watch a couple of apps and kenny's not getting away just like we said you're like oh boy because i think that was what kenny expected. Kennedy thought okay. I'm going to get the start. And he did get the start and he's like okay. I'm outta here like this is old times. I'm gone and then cooper figures it out like he just figures the track out he's able to negate any weakness he had really which was kind of the whoops all day. Just really wasn't as quick as tomac and and web their. Excuse me a rock-n-roll day. And then he just wears these guys down you know the track starts to go away which is certainly a strength for him. You know the worst attracted. I think the worst rocks and yet you know on a perfect track rocks and is really difficult to deal with and it feels like webb has figured out that he can just wait it out right. He can withstand this first couple of lap barrage that rocks and has then the rest of the race is gonna come to him. And he's just proven that time and time again and much to kenny's dismayed. That's kinda the way this championships on. Yeah it's not over but it certainly feels like they mentioned like i don't know how rocks reels sing in. I mean obviously a bike problem. Big crash cooper ended up in a concrete last year. So it certainly happens. My skeptical my skepticism. Because he had to jump to guys. While can you just gotta jump one guy but yeah we johnno right like i don't know how he gets this thing back in. No i mean we've seen many of these titles one and we know what it normally looks like and obviously it is possible. That whatever jason anderson near spoke broken the first turn right like those things are all possible but we just know how this normally looks and it looks exactly like this. You know half or did the year. You're like wait a minute. So what does what one five out of six now and the only one who didn't win was daytona which is now looking more and more like just daytona you. Don't you just write off the tarmac win. They're just it's almost like he's one really five in a row so we have never really seen. I don't feel like i do do that. And just not end up. Even anything can happen and also I mean can had. The greatest opportunity is going to have the tournament. Amount attractive was good on attract web is bad on any head of him so to me. That's bigger than math with nine points. Fifteen points who cares. He hesitated in one of the turns on the left hand. Turns on web was coming in like he was scared. Not scared but bracing for impact on the web hit him. He had a chance to dirty web in another turn. Your just like dude are you gonna. Are you gonna do something anything. But nope he's not and that's fine. That's the way rides. That's that's how it is. But i can guarantee you website. Dude i got you. I got you. You're not to do anything you know. So that's the point. That the the great jeremy mcgrath made last week and mcgrath never did that kind of stuff but even he was saying that rocks needs to do it. Because i mean that's probably is running through webs mind when he's on them with five minutes to go he's gotta be like this is totally mine. Now yeah right. Yeah because roy brockton is not want spend like oh dude he could do something sketchy or try to knock me down like rocks and had three chances. I'd say to knock him down. The implied threat of it right by web web has zero fear of anything coming. Because why would he have any fear of anything coming. Yeah don't even knock them down. Just come in do something do anything. Jesus but yeah. It was a big turn. I think mentally and everything else more than three points more than three page. Atv sand. I mean that's rock was really getting eaten up. What could you see what the heck was. What was he doing wrong or what was doing right because they were so much fascinating san and it was killing him energy wise bouncing through their factor. I saw i think it just changed quite a bit throughout the throughout the race. there to start the main event. You basically you're just going double double and then it kind of turned into like there was like this double whip on the first one and web was using that to go to to really well and kenny was staying kind of the to the right. Like if you're facing as the writer he was kind of going to the right of that double weapon. He was having a really tough time getting over the first double where web was using that with the kinda give him some list and get over the first double and then that would set them up coming from the left side that was set up to sweep through that corner so much better. Were kenny being on the right with struggling for the double and then on top of that he was on the inside for the final corner and it was just like this double whammy. That was not working at all and yet the last few. You could see kenny. Really putting in a charge to try to catch up and then who get to the sand and just blow it So yeah i mean it can. It can take one section like that to ruin any charge. I can't he was going to the right because it was taller there right. He thought it'd be easier to double not as warranted but but but he wasn't getting it. It just wasn't even getting a whipped on that first one wasn't working so tomasi barsha. That was a good battle. That was really good. That was intense to those guys pulled away from anderson who moved up a little bit. And i thought one point amac is going to kenny before he hit the block so that was a good battle. And i'm sure bam bam is pretty frustrated at his to force the last few races because he's written well right he's done. He's done everything. Well there were so many different Kind of ebbs and flows in this race. You know the first lap kennedy county gets away. He's not under pressure. Really like not a big leap but not under pressure and actually toma comes up and gets after web you know. Just before halfway tomac is he looks like the aggressor of all four of them and that kind of shifts tomac drops back then barsha becomes the aggressor and you're like man could barschak it up here and and make a run at web. He can display like there was just so many things going back and forth then web catches fire. You know maybe seven or eight minutes ago and goes up and goes after kenny. And you know. I don't know if it was track changing or these guys just mounting charge mental mentally or physically just finding their groove or what but man it was just this weird back and forth where somebody would just have the momentum and then two or three minutes later he would kind of losing somebody else would make a run out of think. That's know part of that is because of the great track right. All of that stuff like mistakes. You feel good you feel in a rhythm you nail a couple of rhythms and that makes it for the seesaw battle that we that we've seen that was really good so but we barshop ridden well for not much to show for it. Bonus money and tv interviews and stuff like that the last couple of days. Yeah that had to be. Asked me the bummer for him. I believe he might have a little frustrated after the tuesday night event. Tata's you think the feeling. I have Which sucks because he did ride awesome. I mean awesome especially tuesday coming through Which we've found on most tracks of jt's correct that was difficult to do and he did come through and he didn't take dudes out to and then here like i think if you're barsha you've raised roxanne and tomasi a million times right. I feel like if you have a race where you're like. I was going just about as fast as them. That's really good you know. They've had the edge on him more times than he does on them throughout their career. So yeah i guess. I could see the frustration. I i was thinking more like he should be pumped that he's writing so well. But i guess you're saying oh well you want your. Because he had it right. He had third he got by. They had yeah rice. Did you talk to them about that. Tweet no i'm good man okay. We'll talk it over at some point. Bright people were. Yeah in case. People aren't aware there was an issue last tuesday. After the tuesday race where our guy mitch kendra was actually doing the tweeting for us. 'cause steve i think he's above tweeting Well we had to bring you back that we brought back this weekend tweet every weekend i just. I don't want to do the whole thing. So i tried to get out of it. Yeah all right. You're you're a diva. I get it So yeah won't partial makes a pass on and sexton last tuesday and my guy mitch types. Man he checked up. He didn't hit anybody. But that was an aggressive angle in that. Turn and for some reason like two hours after the race barsha goes on twitter. Hardly any of the riders go on twitter anymore and just start blasting us as like your fake news. was it to bring up the negative. I wrote awesome. It was clean. It was all just aggressive. And i'm like what is this. And then i went in there and i said hey. I don't think we meant that has negative. And he's like oh you that wrote it have a good night and i'm like i don't know what the here is. That's all i got so i know. Yeah but don't worry. I fixed it all is i tweeted aggressively out there sweet. It wasn't aggressive angle. Yeah he was fine. But i think i fixed it. He's not aggressive. Yes you you you specify on saturday. He's not being aggressive. Yeah i just. I don't i don't feel like it's a beat this buried because as always i have a golden rule of if a rider is super emotional heated about something an hour after the race. I kind of just let it go anderson. V good job for anderson passed a bunch of guys to get up there again so he's passed a lot of people this whole three dallas races. He's done a good job of that. Malcolm six dylan's seventh. Ap nine so we had a little bit of yamaha run. They're going on at one point. Didn't didn't show. Yeah kinda weird as he got shuffled back there. Yeah a little bit right. yeah he would Wasn't on the losing end of those guys. He wasn't getting time qualifying either for the first time in a bit so i don't know it was just a weird race for him. He's been so good lately. I guess it was a month ago and got nice. Okay no problem. He has been better than that lately. Savant cheesy good job for joey. Eighteen got a good start. We saw him up there early and then his team bogle. It will be out for a while. Sounds like jt. yeah. I don't know the final prognosis They definitely had sore chasa longs and went to get checked out and Yeah so hopefully nothing too. Serious steam wilson tenths. That's about where he's been all year long around there. Good job for tickled to get eleventh. That's the that's a finnish for him. I mean yeah. Sexton went down in. The san and marvin went down to diaw but still tenth and eleventh. For wilson. a tickle is good job for those guys. So tickle tickle four was stuck behind freezing for a long time okay finally made the move and then yeah they he kinda just road by himself the rest of the race marvin rough rough ways from r. j. j. geico. I was somebody Second third lap. Something like that and Got up was flexing. His hand Something was going on with his hand. But yeah it's been a horrific arlington experience from our sexton to That was an odd crash like hard in the senate. Oh yeah yeah. It was a. They didn't show it. I was. I was begging the cameraman to focus in on a safe. His face was pouring but out of it. I mean like a fox that had been turned on in his nose and mouth. I mean i don't know if they are even able to show stuff like that but it was really really and he said that he felt like a boxer or something he got beat up by boxer whose faces is bad. So yeah yeah so. That's a big big guys. That looked fast. That that you know d on the night so the thirteenth i watch you know what we don't probably talk about stf. I had him apart mixed fantasy last week at dallas too. I should say he's been steady each like there's not a lot of there's not a lot of flash there but in a season where the four fifty guys it's hard to make every main guys like max's level not for him though he's in every and he steady and he's not flying off the track and like i don't know just shutout max asti for being steady. No i'm totally with you This one really sealed hit a couple of good races. It's like the guy comes back. It's almost like you need like four or five race sample size. Like look at mcelrath right. He came back. That the orlando in the heat race was amazing. And then you're like five weeks after your It hasn't been good but anstey this isn't just got lucky once pumped up i keep just being in this position every time. And then you look at. I mean i don't know what's up with wrath become one of the biggest mysteries of the year but I think people. Well that's zouqi suck. And i'm like dude and these writing as well as anyone would ever expect anstey. Super ten years told me fi. You told me in january that anstey was going to beat heart raft every single rice that they race together. Which made i think has happened. Maybe maybe maybe we got him once. I don't even know. I would say you're crazy. I would have said your podium to the super cost last year. There's no way max asti. You wasn't raised supercross for seven years. Or whatever is going to make brandon heart raft. And do you not only beats brandon like. It's no contest. Yeah it's really good. Like i feel like thirteenth. That's all you should be asking for for anthony at least right now but i don't know maybe it will get even better. He's literally just getting started to tea. Yeah all berg. Was i guess he was a last minute. Not a last minute thing but because jeb couldn't ride jt. I guess through oldenburg on the fourth of the again right. yeah i think. He's on permanent. Standby in case anything goes wrong for j b. But i'm i'm thinking we may seem goldenberg this this season b. was on a On their race they live which killed it as usual absolutely just amazing between. Jv and mcgrath. I mean i just turn it on and to sleep to the soothing. Sound like white noise. Taken that to it. But jeremy dallas to was good. I mean i don't. I don't listen to that. Show that much on in the press box right. I didn't watch it at all. Yesterday i went for a mountain bike. Ride the other race. I missed. I did watch that was daytona so kind of hit and miss it. When i'm the race you can kind of in the press box. But you're not really paying attention to it or whatever. But when jeremy was i was i glued. Doing it was great. It was great and he was all about yelling that he stopped taking the inside gate he was offered. You know felt like he was just gonna start screaming so yeah he was great. It was if you guys have peacock you owe it to yourself to go back and watch practice from arlington to. You're probably like why would i watch practice. That's a week old now but it's worth it for mcgrath comments. In second eight sessions the practice. It was just yes everybody. He passed Bowers in the heat race. I don't know what happened hours but straight up. Got him near the end to get ninth. He's back in the main event again. A straight up beat them. Yeah i watched it very closely because it had towers of my fantasy team. So i was cheering for hours while i watched chisholm just passing away. It was very anti-climactic to better right marty. Sixteenth again. huge get off. He put it on. instagram story. Backs all jacked up and everything else got in the whoops and the practice after that as well. Yeah a good one to starling took off with the l. q. In cajal for starling these these yamaha q. Guys they don't want any money apparently they just keep making maine's so how about that key. With era and k oh man. Why do they have to have an awesome race tracking an intriguing heat race main event titled combo. Because i really wanted to just say unequivocably that a reverse clayson was the best part of the night but the main was also good. I'll give it that was dynamite. And era gets him back. So and in moxham after the finish and really brandon and brandon really kinda jacked up kate. Kate was going for brandon. And it made mistakes going brandon and annette allowed area to get back in and of course anyway was the last lap and a half was just pinned was is closed but it worked out and then. Jt did his bike. Breakers that you crash bike broken of okay and bike and practice to correct. Yeah okay well first. They re crashed eric crash. Then the bike. Okay in practice you talking okay. So jerry a little of everything. Yeah check check. Yeah when you watch the practice show at home steve. You don't see it as much as i do. I guess but you will always at some point. Just see like a body. Start until i crawl back to motorcycle and you like identify. It's in the corner. It's never shown right. Like i say right it was it was that was in the main event to. I saw them on top of the screen. I'm gonna go down before the thing. I think entering exactly. Yeah so yeah and bowers crashed out. Yeah he crashed with heart in the sand Both of them. I think crash pretty good because dowers just headed back to the to defend immediately and just literally rolled around and i mean rolled around. He he was three laps down. Yeah yeah so yeah. You look at look at heart wrapping three labs down having bowers the nfl second nfc. Marvin deeping jas fifteen. Thanks do you think there is a fear of those like you said with building tracks like just as much as i want this track. I wanted to track every week. Something like this. Do you think they told him down. A purpose and their c. C make the track heart and guys get hurt. Moose gets hurt. Sexton gets hurt. You know i. i don't buy it. I think if you make the track easy. You're asking for god's to override the track and you just have big crashes where guys because they're really pushing the limits of jackass. Where if you make the check this difficult. I think you got to respect the track. They actually have to slow down a little bit and pay attention to what they're doing. Because you can't just bush your way through some of these sections you'll you will hurt yourself right. Yeah i i don't know if they yeah i don't know i don't think so. I think i guess. I'm asking a question and answering. I think they're scared to make the tracks difficult because they think they're going to thin out the field and we stars. I agree. i think that's why and i'm sure. Jt if you went through each one of these crashes i mean a couple of them are in the sand here right so mar actually was in san. All three of those are hard left and bowers san and sexton four. Yeah yeah so it really had nothing to do with the whoops or that big rhythm 'cause look like in the end if you're saying okay so can rocks and can jump that five but you know it expects shoes or bowers or those guys do well. They just don't do it right they. Just don't do it. So yeah i mean i think contrary to popular belief they have breaks and they actually know what they're doing they're not robots that are like well we got five we gotta do five and they spend it right they. They know where their locations are. Yeah yeah in fact when you watch you know be. Nc practices are being covered In practice i mean you see all the different okay. This is what the three digit level way of getting to the. There's still viable. So i agree. I told back in the press conference like. Hey i know you tracking you loved options and he did. And i'm like but does it all seems scarier or sketch your and he said it didn't He thinks it could even better. He tell with bummed the other lane on the other end. He was outside to get close to web and he's like the way the jumps were. There was nothing i could do with that speed like there was only one thing i could jump on enter more speed and i would just have to come in behind him and then blonde step off. Yeah yeah And he's like have awesome whoops but then a ninety if you those the one eighty after it then you could really block. But he walked away. He didn't think it was perfect. But he's he's he's totally right to those that absolutely makes sense and i get your he's I guess he's kind of taking the worst out of it but you know it's never going to be perfect. Those are absolutely valid coins. One hundred percent agree with them. And i didn't even think about it at the time but when i hear him say that i'm like yeah. You are one hundred percent right but man they got so much right with this track i will take every time versus what we sometimes see me wrong like was still saying. It was great like not being perfect. He knows it was better than usual. And not any scarier. So you're right there on a all. He's got the and never do it again. But i thought it was great. It's funny though to hear comments like that. Because i didn't even i didn't even say i. I did think about the section after the mechanics area where they were going outside and then they had to basically break to go step by step off man if you could go for their do something else. That would really help. But the point of the ninety after the whoops is is really really true. I got i really believe that because it did this awhile passing. You could see these guys get these huge run and then they would just nothing they can do with it. Yeah and he also said that weaves ended up kind of having a groove Where you really. Just there was only one line and he said he was like. Somehow you know web ended up in that and kenny wasn't kenny was always in the left So econo- neutralize. It doubled neutralize the passing of the whoops. There was only one group down the middle end one eight after.

They do put arrows But actually i do. Wish i had it because as you remember my bike broke and i had no clue where i was and i sat there for a half hour or so. It would come in handy. I saw also kayla russell intense as her in the bike race. He did raise bike race. And none other jeff russell caleb dad who is the course builder for gnc I see him in a dozer. Of course he. He only exist in a dozer or water truck. That's it. i don't even know if he can walk. He comes up and he's like windsor boy. Math is going to do one of these e bike. Races yard steve. Gnc wants you on any bike at a gmc. Yeah i've always been there for those people have always been there. You guys know that. I'd like to get out and do one. I got to figure it out somehow. But i can only do it on a taser. That's it. I'm a contract. Details or riders. So i don't know how that's gonna work. you know. i feel like whatever you ask for. Intense probably help with we'll figure it out to fifty class dallas three jt. This is the justin cooper. We thought we'd see these fast that the first two dollars in qualifying but Yeah it hasn't gone that way. This is what we thought we'd see gets to start and takes off. Yeah but he. He really didn't run away with anything. You know great job. He controlled the race. He did everything he needed to do. But i still thought that he would be more dominant than even that. You know 'cause. I don't know how much they showed on. Tv like macadear was. They're pretty much the entire race like he was two three seconds back. I was wondering if it was ladders though because the gap got three point six it got to one point eight like you know what i mean i was like. Is that loppers. Well either way. I was able to match pay you you know. It wasn't a just a cooper runaway. Which is what. I i thought we were going to see so. I guess i should just be giving more credit to camera. Mcadoo is really what it comes down to you because coop cooper did everything he's supposed to do i just macadear was able to go with them right right so he's got the poisoning now. Yeah that that thing. Flip pretty good. This is turning out to be a great series and less we each like i think is the best guy i just do. This is going to be a great series and less coop. Figures this out. Yeah i agree. I mean he's got the most pedigree. He's one fewer races. And you think that's been a podium podiums all over the place. Yeah he's been a contender for almost every championship. He's been in which is certainly not what you could say about mcadoo or panicker or lawrence river else however I will say yeah. He didn't low mcadoo. It's like mcadoo was taken that step so it's still within the margin of error Believe really it's probably gonna come down to somebody's gonna have one more screw up one more bad race like do go down the whoops. I bet you there's going to be one more those in store and i think that will tell the story more than just someone. Just being two seconds faster at the end of fifteen minutes three times in a row whatever today wackos lost three points from that penalty. And he's too back. So yeah. I fully fully behind that penalty fully behind it. But i'm just yeah just say more than three positions right. I thought it was. He wasn't even like seventh seventh. Eighth and ninth or something more than three points though. Wouldn't it be no back then. It was out of the top five point so seven to ten. Gotcha okay. yeah. I think really. The story was hundred lawrence in the nets though. Really weaving weaving there. That was the story. All alone in third. Looks like he's got a little feisty over jumped triple. Yeah the nets once again. Just say saving a life eat a honestly he would have heard himself as much as hanes me to give you that much credit. It saves him. He was bound for the concrete off of his motorcycle and he thanked me on instagram. I guarantee you had no idea. And then just literally. Last night. Everyone was tagging. Yeah everyone's saying right so so he's probably like i don't know what this means but let me thank mathis blah so listen. I'm buddies with ricky right now. Can one of you to pull aside break this down for. I'm pretty sure he knows. I doubt he knows i once i agree. One says it all the time. He doesn't pant tension to that ship. I think i think he does more than one of you guys are see and then just be like look man. The guy came up with the nets. five years ago. Prater said it wouldn't work. Everyone doubted them. They save so many lives. Can you just can you just throw it out there. Oh you want to mention you wanted to say it. Yeah what'd you guys. Think i was gonna. What'd you some sort of acknowledgment on the broadcast. I think that's that's that's bullshit. It's probably i mean you can't keep check pulp mexican. Have it can one of you guys pull aside todd harris or lead iffy. Maybe i would say this as an announcer as an announcer. I would feel like. I'm dropping serious knowledge if i were to go like behind behind behind the scenes. Like here's how this concept happened. I almost feel like that is the kind of thing that you would drop. Thank you and you don't know how much they would get. Praise on social for doing that. From paul it is true. I think the problem is. They don't realize how how potent nation isn't hundred lawrence knows. Well listen the nets i mean. The only problem with the nezar aren't more nets. That's the only problem anymore. the net. Actually i believe your original goal of the net was for the nineties the ninety degree corners to have berms or one as we were having one eighty s on flat turns to some but i mean we haven't seen in burma to ninety degree corner. I don't know just in the last three decades. I mean good god we used to just have these corners where you would just slow down and roll around the inside and everyone just follow everybody in was flat and it was mostly. Wow was all about safety. Sure was but i'm saying jt. I'll ask you this if you had in the everyone universally knows you can't pass a ninety degree corners but you have to have nineties. It's just the way you fit supercross track and a football stadium if you had a net and you can build a huge berm on the outside which may be opened up a rhythm. Could you get passing nineties. If you had a net a yes. But i will say so the Rhythm section that tomas was commenting on that he wasn't as happy with the end of that rhythm. Section guys were using the outside firm on that ninety before the triple. A guy in In the afternoon qualifying sessions whiskey. Throw off the berm into the wall broke his leg. I i watched the entire thing a net wide open right into the wall. What's the net cost to k. What's that think tank. I've never source the net before high in two thousand dollars. I'll give them two thousand dollars right now. If i could get that bill. I mean seriously. It's like some polls schedule base the way more money than anybody i've ever met. I love it. He's like bill. Gates tells echo tells echo i no problem. I'll let let's get more nets. What what's the problem here. they work. they're great they save lives. There's no better net guy though there's been no better net guy than bag it right. There's no yeah on her one with good. This one was good but it was like spiderman. It was correct hundred. Wrap themselves around the pole. Yeah which was great. Looked like it needed repairs. I was getting tweets from the stadium. Was they were working on this for several minutes. Well face. hey he's sandwiched right. He got back on his fifth. So good job seth anchor. Being a all-star seven in mixed fantasy was the easiest pick of ever made. My life guy was on all day. Can we can. We say that hundred way to pull the championship bout. He owes it to the nets. Why do you do that. Jt i think it may be. There's no way he finishes that race if he ends up. Faith person the concrete dude. We've had ten guys hit the nets and save lives. I've i've yet to hear from any of these. These these guys any of these assholes. Now i'm not saying he has to say it i'm saying can we point actually net being the catalyst for this title if he ends up pulling it out because i am firmly in the camp of. Eds that raised about the net. Ok actually i should take that back because cornell and did thank me for the nets when i say that nobody has thanked me and maybe to actually maybe a lot of guys have actually maybe forest forest immediate media debit from writer well except for ap in value carry work again. This time this mortar. Yeah so every single time actually not every single time but maybe every guy that has my number jt. I cannot believe you're opening the door for steve. We could be salt lake city and he could just turn to us and say. Hey hunter lawrence well you did you do this jt. Listen i don't want to be the guy that every time. Steve says anything. I just poo poo it. Because i feel like that a lot of times so when i actually think there's i have i have to speak up otherwise i don't have any credibility and i just looked like i'm trying to argue with him every time so you can have this one. That's a lesson that media could learn should go on a nationwide tour that attitude. Maybe these maybe some of these guys in power can listen to these goddamn tough blocks because i got some good ideas for that too. I'm not here for that. One that one i'm It's gonna cost eight bucks because about eight dollars and let me go to home depot. And i'll submit the receipt and that'll be about eight bucks for three blocks so take three by eight. I got handled go to home depot. It's not a problem. I'll do the shopping. it's fine prater me johndroe anyone listening. I got this so Leaks wohlfarth julie's himself. A good series man unbelievable. Has he done enough to get another contract to early has who who are they going to get better than him right now. I don't know that that's a fair question. That's what should be the question. I think he's done enough personally. Going into the cnn. I would've said no. I would have absolutely said no going into the season. But he's he's convinced me who's got two podiums other just one. He's running front anyway. Just one but yeah but this little improvement you know you will tend to think. Keep going that direction. Yeah he's definitely deserved. I think what's terrible but the whole thing is left red dogs facility to go to bakers and now he's better and i'm gonna pretend that it didn't really happen. But he did throw red dog. The lifetime shout out on the audio last week when he was cool he definitely thanked dog. A lot. so marched banks was good march. Banks was He crashed but he was good. He was moving up so six place for garrett seven zombie thrasher and fry ninth and tenth. Maybe they're maybe they're good. Maybe they're back. Is this enough. That's a better question. I think i think swallowed done plenty. Like says he's he's shown promise after a horrible summer. I think frying thrasher other question. Fry was better all day long. Yeah i'll definitely. Was that team. The expectations are just through the roof. Yeah when you look at blows computers like should they be beating these guys zombie. But i mean yeah. They're veterans. They know what to build so you know stumbled into peter's to star kids again cut. Kp sells used trucks in the off. Season just got hold onto like relax. It's the family business. It's not like he is like he went on source. The job somewhere like went on went on some. You know. find the site. But he's not like in the back like just kind of you know doing the books or something for the family business like phil bad to buy a truck them and there's a lot of money in that though i don't blame him i'm just saying on the lochner like he's walking good for have you asked bill. How how well. Oh yeah. I have phil on. His there was no out the door price. I think that was number one. Of course the tour i now. I'm starting to hear. I think he did make maybe a little more integrated across really leading on. Oh did you did you get a little. Not the five hundred k. Somewhere between fifty and five hundred. Yes i believe. It is between fifty and five hundred. Go that. I don't have the receipts. Can't say but I think he's doing okay. And by the way. Steve you are using him telling us trucks in the off season. You are the jeremy martin dream killer. Okay so be careful how you use these. He had a regular job. What do you mean well. I mean you don't allow jerry martin to use that at all. because he's a multimillionaire. Saint peter's has to do it to make ends meet peterson any money. But you so you. So you think peter is on. The show was playing. Like plan coy. Hey don't come over here. Anybody listening i. There's an easy math of purse money that i've heard somebody do. Oh okay And it was like. Oh no it's true. I mean what's the question. What did you get for winning the title. Maybe what he true just for the title but if you do twenty round so it goes up significantly. It's chase tallow vindicated. You know don't care to know the numbers to know that he has not been the kid all right hundred j eleventh carson mumford. Twelve that's give from unfort- that's a big step. Yeah and he didn't go backwards like he has another as i was very very good job for that cody shock crashing though. Jeez he was a fourth man. Yeah damn day crashed and then he got plowed trying to get back on his bike. It was a whole thing right. Dominic theory again when i see him. I just keep thinking about. How can you do around one. Thirty an orlando to couldn't do it couldn't make them in their little soft spot in your heart for a german supercross racer doing well. Now there was until. I picked him up and he completely came apart at the seams. Now that little heart. That part of my soul has been crushed and is now black mitchell harrison also. Jt yeah. That was pretty pathetic to be honest. I have no idea what he was doing. Okay what else lopes nossa viruses there. But i mean. I don't know even after the contact even after the contact you're like okay. Big deal walk. Yeah i was very yeah. One third speed through the sand. I like this is all fantasy related by the way all the things were saying. I was probably four or five riders. So just wanna make that clear for everybody but that harrison br brutal he was in the spot. He's better than the guys around him. He goes eight miles. An hour through the sand colombo leave falls on top lock like what for the main event. Yeah you look at a guy and you're like okay. Maybe that's the case i ever met got like. Fifty supercars is under his belt. Maybe more he took a dive. Yeah maybe maybe in the two fifty class no not. Maybe once grading for fifty okay. Cheyenne harbour made a i made event fund via. I'll made his first main event. Michael hicks michael. Vick's yup dare. Kelly event ran away with elsie qaeda. He did i. I made sure on. Twitter knew it was not any yes. I saw that So good job at all. Those guys are making events. Someone else didn't make it right thousand race. Oh jordan smith jordan crash originally that harrison into this bad path. Yes jordan needs to. I don't know just. I guess he's going to be out now. Right shoulder dislocated. There's no way he comes back in for atlanta. I don't think i dunno. She's him. So arnold say i mean it is we say jordan. He he hangs it out or whatever but then some of the i turn. Yeah this yeah. But i mean dude. He's hitting the deck a lot. Oh god every all every race. But one i think he got seventh loss dallas too. Yeah and then they got run over big crash around one two crashes arlington so you think sue harrison and smith making it and then you got hicks and kelly harmon and these other guys in it so good job for those guys get in well looking forward to seeing atlanta in the three there. The tracks should be really cool. I think. I hope to santa saturday morning from my couch. Are we going to be like. Is this going to be a tonal issue. We each where. I'm going to have to get people involved. Felt run event so i think we'll be in the media. We'll have standard Work with everybody sean. Brennan from phil think we're gonna problem like press box. We'll be in a press box. It's all. I'm sure there will be yes to watch the race is it felt event. I'm sure or run just like the other failed events we always had the problem daytona where it was like. Oh we didn't even know. We needed a press box Upshaw knows will be good. I'm excited i'm excited to be back and yet what is this track Hold but entail. Are you going to salt. Lake city believe it or not the final. I cannot go to because there is a live flat track. Show that weekend. That i have to be guy for I don't know that there's to salt lake right. So you're out you're out you can't go to the second one. You're not going second lots. I mean i haven't found the incentives i have. I've had no regrets here. I haven't found what i'm missing by not going well. The problem. wait till i tell you what. I paid for an airbnb in park city for that week. Oh you're writing wrongs. Yeah yeah it's not going to sit in a darkened hotel room with no window. Open window to open at call though you said. Oh you're not too cheap. But it turns out it was very pricey to go to park city news very pricey the but i'm bringing the wife so we have okay last year. That have been fine. Okay i guess outdoor testing for a lot of guys right from now a couple of weeks i would imagine when when kooky wants to go to dinner tonight or you're gonna tell her. I i still still angry. Jt i'm telling you you do you okay. Testing by the way one other thing to throw in levi kitchen the amateur yet. Another star racing i'm hotter is just absolutely lighting. The world on fire he dominated through the freestone races. I've heard quite a bit about. He does go riding of course with the pro guys on the team and how fast he is or should i say. He's faster than them and his teammates students. Not even heard of one year ago levi kitchen and now a sudden it's already starting to garner some serious hang down hype like he's turning. Hang or that was not in the cards until they saw it was fifty fifty going so fast. Now we have a choice But i believe he's going faster than teammates including the pros. Well fry should do everything. He can to get. Get like a padlock on that bike. Yeah you could change south to the bike copperfield copperfield. Swallow the key in the by going. Hey we does ricky rachman you talk to him. No he actually yes. He came hidden. Ricky rachman the former host of mtv's head bangers ball back when that kind of music was a thing in the late eighties. Still around involved with lateral. They did bring him in wants to addition to be the color analyst. So i had to call fake race with him He's a good guy. I wouldn't say he's an expert analyst for television but that's it. I've never interacted with him. I wonder if he's got some crazy stories. Yup come on right -absolutely right. Yeah yup yeah rachman our buddy. Kristen beat Got laryngitis. I couldn't do the second flat track show. there was rookie rachman handling the podium interviews. Yep great okay. You actually remember ricky rachman as you. Oh yeah everyone knows rookie record. He was yeah. I mean. I was in canada. But i still knew who ricky rachman was. I didn't watch mtv. He's still know who. Ricky rachman is though. Oh wow i didn't even know what he jumped in for love line for a little bit too but Your doctor corolla got booted by that and so he was the co host after corolla. So i think. I remember him from like when i first became a mechanic listening to whatever love line was on. So wow oh so much more depth than i realised maybe we should have had him as the analyst absolutely variety of topic. Sure all right anything else. Thank the folks in the fly racing rental and max's and kobe links and motorsport armagh on maps as well Dallas congratulate j. t. You went to every single one of these races right. Oh yeah the program going you. Just i want it. I mean i just have to give it to you. There is no financial gain for you. Go into these racist. There's no extra pay no no. It's just a it's just full commitment and it's coupled with the fact that i have no. Is those two things. The divergence of those two things built into the per- perfect circle. Twenty twenty one baby. And i said those words a couple of months ago and you've got all mattie and i said those words on the podcast i said you got no lies freaking out. You can't insult me. I'm allowed to make separate humor. It's exactly i mean whatever man like what else are you going to do. Besides the racist. Why do have a job. But you're doing your job at the racist. So if they let you then cool. I went to. I wouldn't mind boggling new mac before dallas too. I thought gee. I talked to gene saturday tuesday to that to some point in the stadium me gene.

Bobby i love the guy. i don't dislike. i think he's the greatest competitor sport ever had that absolutely one hundred percent in my mind. I firmly believe that statement. I said about these modern day guys in switzerland or belgium of forty five minutes on the same bike. You're not beating around crazy. They're not doing it if they think they're so much better nowadays than they were in states their pool so different bikes. Different times. Beasts from the east damon bradshaw. It got to the point where. I didn't want to leave home and once i got to the race i wasn't into it. I wasn't going to give one hundred percent. I'm not gonna take money working class. hero. Henry definitely an emotional moment for me just thinking to myself. That's it you know.

One decided to be Nadya untapped. They get very ambitious. Apparently cover about three years ago. Nothing around with a bunch to my friends one of the guys on my team Eddie. Moss's some other than we were talking about one thing I don't know I wrote up every day my on my couch had time including me. Maxwell Hodges Make Fun of me like my joke now you just cruise industry and Covering we have been talking about supercross. How's that honesty? I'd love to do something and it came up. We'll do it then and I was like yeah. I'll do on Monday anywhere. No they made me put my money. My mouth is so it was a one sided by the spent five thousand thousands dollars on a night out in Queens down the place you live in New Zealand or I had to roll up to the stadium by like Anaheim won twenty twenty six. PM The F.. Twenty that's how it came about and Yeah fits in here. Gave you a three year window of doing it. I just spray you window. 'cause all build up this or do that different things happen. We had some setbacks. Oh man so what are we. What is pivot of it? Think of this and then he's top guys. How you really make your living? How do they how do they think of this? I think that's pretty starts at Chris. Coss the owner of Ten years now pivots I. I have a great relationship with them and he loves motocross and that he's tied to. I was actually in the office that last week in the Christmas party. The kind of sat me down with like you please me fully outlets I never will come to light. You said Max's tires. They're like massive bike sponsors to the team and they made the best size every mountain biking site. That's on board with that and they. They are a huge help to what we are trying to do. Here of made some Alhassan. They've really believing helping. How would you grow up racing? Did you grow up riding around riding bikes. No not four things like so long ago and then we didn't really have a then. I played Ice Hockey for ages to that being Canadian. Equal rights that yeah I was actually is lucky national champion and then quit. That started riding bikes. Maybe six months and I was like eleven. quit that an and start racing mountain bikes from the age of twelve. Okay then yes pretty much mountain bikes to who by through the sixty. I go pit bike Chinese fit by then I t t l one twenty five. Had that then go motocross bike. But we couldn't really afford to go to tracks I'd like right around a field or whatever. Six months didn't have loan for a couple years and go to one twenty five dollars stolen and didn't have on for couple years and got to fifty. Yes and didn't really have new bikes. They wouldn't run very good. Oh I couldn't afford the track up on and off on and see from the age eighteen NYC. I'd ride a month maybe like ten days year. Whatever so you really don't have a lot of experience some drug pit like so honestly I feel like I can hold my own against some of these guys hit by? I should be well. Should they shouldn't be a problem. Exactly I should we get and then twenty fifty and I want to competition go to Kenya. Crank blacks he get quite a bit of money to that and I bought my first brand needed like in twenty fifty three fifty so ever since then. I can kind of afford to ride three times a week if I wanted to. Whenever I had quite rapid progression increase increase? I guess I could actually learn how to jump on a C. D.. Three four years ago had to be right coming into a jump weight central. Frodo even let you can get over this like Eh years ago and now a lot since then that then I ran my master little and now we're looking at I mean social media's not everything but following on social media you look at it you can really rider bike well so easy tracks. Maybe I can ride Manuel soft tracks right So Max's got hooked up with Jerry McGrath. Can you believe it honestly now. It's like a dream come back zipping. So good and Chris and everyone out arid. Yeah I met Jeremy and Whistler Mountain bike event the someone else into that state during signing with them such such a nice guy on Tau have everyone out there in the middle of your shot like. You can't believe how can you be such a humble nice helpful. Cool Guy Right. They hooked me up with him and yet maxis of of done lot of connecting the dots and cows. How's Accu helping now but honest? It's Jeremy's by. He's donating his bike to the minute one of his bike so his time and he's amazing like through him and then Lou the workshop and the guys that his his team with the McGrath modest hopeful and they're like kind of coordinating and during the tire orders and then they got the suspension done by bones at PROZAC for the bike. which is honesty ridiculous? And then Kerr rude rude food. Yeah the the test track. The he's honesty. Such a nice guy like coups outside. Sorry the guys you can hear the test track mark and you come Dude around you guys. Sorry this opportunity so oh yeah. Thanks access in Jeremy Rea- really helping out in this one. I guarantee are you. AC is all in on this pro talked about it. But I bet you he knows all about it so we met the other day. Yeah that was pretty cool So truthfully look the main event you know. That's that's a different story but the night show where we're going for the night show right. Yeah look into the night hsieh's honestly it's ambitious now. We built a track of the K my friend Jordan Pasta race. GP's things cracking is in the UK and seven days riding on it in a month it rained everyday redick full and I've a twenty is in the UK like everything that went wrong side. Seven days. K We go out here to California it right as soon as as we got and Sweden another week and a half there while something so I think of it. Twelve Day as total supercross. Now so boys itself so honesty so fun but the goal that you say the goal and the I have another with a guy from a hundred percent could have only if you know him man. That's five thousand dollars to make make the night shuts the risky event. I WANNA try. I haven't talked to him about it properly at hopefully donate the money to charity. Because we've had so much how Helping out we want to do something cool with that. The yeah the goal is tonight show. So I've got a lot of haters on my my always turned out it Timakova Adam or whoever it is I'm not I'm going out and see practices. Probably a other guys one good lateral and I'm trying to be. I think it's about eight seconds. Slower normally is the forest. Let's yeah well that's just look. There's some guys and I've seen you ride and you're fine. There's some guys. Is it a horrible way. Well I don't anticipate you being one of those guys so I think you're going to fit in with the guys that are right around around Thirty Thirtieth to Fortieth Thirtieth fiftieth going for the night show. And there's not much a separate guys right. Yeah Yeah as long as I can look doc not out of place on the track get round. We have a good time like Jeremy. Everyone's going to be that I can get round dot die and have a good time Paul ready honesty. It's the experience of a lifetime. What a journey teach you did? He did he tell you anything to help you help you with with writing. Yeah Yeah I at the test track at Cuba get their Jeremy's like healthy on the bike and stuff on CD like he turns up an appre in various Mike. I couldn't believe that and then he just gets out and starts making fun of me about because I've never done a stall Natalie minded gate before both making fun of me for that and then he's like yeah just roll around guests to the track and then Villa poetry was there as well for like a specialized that I saw the Cowie test track of. Heroes Dan Jeremy McGrath and Ryan. I defended what she me. Roll around the couch test track. And I'm like I didn't make it even worse. The guy next door baggage Vogel waiting to do a photo shoot. So that's did that watches. This is after I hated his ad and stuff and then he just came out and tried to decide. Moving outweigh moving. Just being like just such watch little things that probably I wouldn't even visa you can use his two towns on that track. Used as the bikes are so good. Now you can shift three neutral true and I honestly wouldn't have thought that I was going round and second everywhere so just that and then you get back over to the Blue Group that I'm worried about that here. Here in California is so different to anything like a mountain bike motorcycle side a lot. Lot easier quickly WANNA WANNA. I was talking to him. Maybe it was ripping at Flyer might have been Chris at Maxim's talking to one about about you and they're like well we need to be gnarly are we. I know when they released the track math and they've put two sets in fact one this year I was like why could you just one. Yeah I thought the last day where that like era like asks. He's been so helpful along Jordan era with. He's got a lifelong fans I've it he's been helping out and hold on. I'm picturing eras adviser like just close your eyes and pin. It did Kinda. That's right. Yeah he's trying to be like that he's yes matter we need yes-men about I would say you got you got this which would have select corner with yes men. That's good good. I like that. What a story though absolutely really cool to to follow this and this is going to go and and I mean I? It's crazy that you know three years ago. You said you you know you you were probably maybe a novice or whatever you know what I mean novice writer it's just gotten into media Local to go out there. Practice tracks. DECAF sessions getting The media expert and got into meeting like three years ago. Yeah I know who you are going to try Anaheim. Yeah Anything Cross over from from mountain biking Moto any any technique. I don't know I can't think of anything the I guess the plying yourself and thinking about it if you look at section outright how do I do this. So how do I do that. Maybe it's honestly a web on whoops of me I go on a mountain bike into it. Rough section my lean back whoops. You've gotTa Have Your Chin over the handlebars this is terrifying. Yeah so that's a bit different for a and then I is similar. It's got to be you know you're writing to wells. You turn on Guy Fawkes you guys. I think I've tried to the times like try. Keep in the up yet which I don't know if there's a good thing not that I find that easier than maybe it got thrown out riding motorcycles. His life always true. Yeah Motor guys will dab their foot every now and then you know. Maybe I'm good can announcing bike site. Maybe that's helping. I'm not sure I think part sort of it just sort of for lack of a better term. The balls of going for it are something that crosses over to anything you know because downhill stuff is not is not for the Faint Daehnhardt. What you do you know what I mean so yeah like it's not get that? Yeah so maybe. That's we scale last week. I at the cow contract was Thursday day thousands. I rural good down dry hot pack track that Status Day and then everything took him to the triple the finish line jump. That's massive. Why so big so I know the one? I want something. This big ridiculous bats. Everything is awesome and then went out Friday. I did a fly. Fo- tissue in the Mornings Mountain biking when out Friday Friday the thirteenth rolled around to upset lap. Everything's fine the APP. See fine came on full-fat Brain fog aww Fulton on the boys riding they'd cut slightly different lining on the trip. Okay and I just went to the trip when case it only that near thrown off I had the big crash. If I'm on a flat down like my mom and people that work is hoping to big cracks in the triple full. Flap site wreck the bike. You bet like got up off the floor. Kind of myself out brock tickle and Eric Su there like duty okay. I'm not. I was fine. Yup I'm still a bit soared today and luckily for me I cooled off at Kawasaki and helps our odd. We needed a new sub frames. New Levers and you exhaust lewisite we did event the number on it so that was Kinda Shitty to get back out the track. Yeah really right did it. And then you said it took a while to jump the triple I. I would agree with that for these guys it is. It's so easy for these guys that can do with their eyes shut. Could do it from a dead stop ten feet ten feet from the ramp. I get that but for me. That would be the big thing for me. Just be freaking out dude. I know at sixty seven feet Eh. Guy itsel impressive now like I always had a huge respect for any sports passing being like a top level athletes. But now when I see those guys of the video video I've watched since hitting a triple when any of those guys talk guides or James or whoever you see like scrubbing a triple run side. It's the most impressive thing. Now I've been out on a track and ruin these things and being terrified. Its own siblings. A new level of respect. And how how good these guys are as another level is really really cool to like fail to stiffen the other side. I guess so is one round only depending on how we do or is it just. Don't we had jokes like hey modern. Somehow I made the main because like San Diego last year in the night show ever was rolling every job. I mean how they made the the main who knows maybe it got PHOENIX less realistically. It's a miracle happens and we even make the night show. I think it's one and done. I'm I'm going on holiday next year instead. It's my all season right now myself. I've needed stress. I was going to say when. When did you series pick up? When do you start so we have the first big events in March and using them to crank legs? Event in the world crosses the march. So I've got a little bit time yet. And this is great crossover training we all right ED mouth to bike ride much training and was still cycling everyday like the motorcycling recycling standard Jim side. It's a great cross training and Pasta and the fact everyday together a supercross tracks. It's really fun. Change otherwise I to try something else and train on other things. Yeah Oh man I.

Yes yeah exactly apart from obviously Lou Jeremy's guy yesterday said I think Max Assail someone from Max's is bringing a big long now like some kind of truck so yeah I think we're GonNa have quite the setup like say on this day. I still so lucky and privileged. I appreciate what everyone's saying so much because I know there's a hundred other guys out. Ah Better writing. It's out by this. This kids that little at me on track and I'm aware of that but what we're trying different fund thing say. Yeah Max I think bring China a big setup. I think the guys the guys who fly the people that Cowie like I talked to route a little bit. These guys already like you. You're like a nice guy you're funny Johny guy is good good dude. Like they're all on board with you because of that you know what I mean like. That's great companies. Even flying out guy in five six years. Max is forever say yeah that will awesome companies still outwit and this shows that pigs so much. I'm an effort into this and just to try and almost childhood dream. Yeah that's awesome. That's cool. Yeah I can imagine I mean I once one time tried to raise pro myself. You know what I mean and sisters I get it. It's their mountain biking for you Did you get like okay. So there's you know there's different motorcars that work there balls off forever and become really good that way like John Dowd or or whatever and then there's guys like Adamson Cirillo or I told him that seemed to be born to ride a motorcycle and one everything from when they were young. which guy were you in the in the Downhill Mountain biking world? I'm definitely a guy is good young. I guess I started off Kinda good it. It was just me and my mom guides the races so it was pretty hot. We didn't really know like she worked so hard to to get me to remember. We didn't know what high oppression around what suspension around we would loss really. We were just got into the race. Isn't doing bests. I I did get ingenious. which is like sixteen in Eighteen? I did okay I want a world junior and then also that I didn't I got Kinda ride for a year then did and it was a struggle for a long time. I didn't know okay on my own. I didn't have mechanic. I didn't like say what tall has this so that we couldn't afford new tires every week. Slash hair now galaxy S.. Thirteen eighteenth awoke up net but this woke up. There's a tea is that used to quantify now but if you get the impact of very solid and then not do terrible and explorations our guest flat tire every race. So I'd snap a chain. I guess it was lack of preparation looking back at it or like not really knowing that My First World Cup podium which is actually Shia fits because in mountain biking summaries Fleiss and podium planning my first World Cup Hodie of Iowa's twenty six twenty five years old So super super light all right one of the oldest guys get specified at that age. Yeah now I was. Yeah pretty late and the team I actually but she right on the pivot cycles. Factory teams is my team effectiveness. You wanted to put America's tapped to to motorcycle cycles is the title sponsor of the team. I run up so it's my cellphone and we have a few other riders than we have free mechanics and an assistant manager. It's my team. The Iranian started with pivot. Okay okay so eight years with the brand ten just like as a privateer just writing for the the distribution cave team now going into the. It's eight years so that's where it's really cool. Pivots out of out of Idaho. I thought okay. I don't know how that where where the WPA connection comes in. But yeah they just worked really it closely together now Doug so w. PS and Kris Jenner UvA tennis awesome. We actually connected those guys. The day I met Doug in that in Las Vegas interbike Black Doug lobbying we got out from there okay Christmas and that weekend and they had a great relationship since as well okay. So that's how it came about. God I didn't know how that worked but also you're doing your own team. Is it like in Moto where you can you controlling sponsors. You're kind of controlling what you wanna use and everything else also. Is that the benefits already much like that. Yes like pivot saw frame sponsor Neta team title sponsor and then we use Fox suspension for instance Max's tires but it might be like. Hey we SPEC all the bikes Max's. Could you please talk to them. They won't forced on me or anything like that but rather we use it. But honestly all the companies they went with the best companies and I have a great relationship with them so it just goes hand in hand. You know like it works out. If we're GONNA catalog it's dumb it from a different tyrod anyway so it. It just worked out really well and like I say now had the team going for a few years and it's just it's awesome having loyalty. I guess in mountain biking. I'm not sure might across southern the have everyone so loyal is really cool if you could try and buy a writer for more money and they'll stay with the money except pretty loyal site. It's really cool mountain bike. The I said like sponsors of the same now our would used to being loyal and and vice versa. Are you do you. You don't run a production of it right. You get special built bike for you not honestly honestly mountain biking you can go out and buy factory rights by expense amount of eight ten thousand dollars per you can race. You can go and buy the bike. We rights like I'd say ninety eight percent the guys you can go out and buy the day rice okay. That's winning a World Cup a new a new linkage on that you can't get now on so something Nia honesty ninety nine percent of things. We'd run you can walk into the shop. Buy Off the shelves. Where are you based? Where do you base yourself out? I like an hour south out to London a place like Hazel Mare. So yeah just in the countryside our away from London Nice little quiet spot where there's not a big city there's no supercross tracks. It's just nice is low me fresh knocks triples. Can you can you practice. They're pretty good places to go I don't think. UK is along great place for Downhill Mountain bike rider to practice on the badly right down on trail bikes and e-bikes see I drive. I I ride a lot of the yeah. Not much downhill detract. So we live maybe a minute long tops. You just get loads of laps. And they're really really good quality for a minute. We're like cool. It the over quantity I guess not massive hills but really fun but we can to Wales which is like three hours away or even at the French outset. Dr Sure Yeah. It's really not too bad to go and writes in some good stuff from the south so you could do that. Yeah do that. What what you stand on e bikes? You said you ride them. So you like your I love Eve. I think it's it's funny because coming from Europe everyone that pre accepted that and coming over to America and like the different the difference in attitude identify people just might change or they haven't tried them yet but I honestly think that one of the best training tools and the most fun things to ride like you you can go out and you you can have have your heart rate at whatever you want it to be at for two hours now off because you work hard you just get more downs in which is shortly what world out there for is the fun part. What kinda right I mean? Gee whiz that's what I tell people you can go as as much as you want or as little as you honor and just keep going you know like yeah. I don't They're amazing so I think that red light me and my mom can get right. She can be in like tub mode. I E co working so hard to keep up with Arnav riot and we've had a good time. I think they're a great tool. Where Hans so fun I just think people scattered change? I guess people that haven't ridden. Maybe I think originally I hate to. Maybe just just laying guys Lalla just had a bad outlook on it. But I think he's open your mind often try them. You'll have a great time and I've seen it's been great so you so I know it's been amazing. I've got twenty three hundred miles on mine in in this year. Now so cool yeah awesome. That's how people can see that in a negative way. I don't know either I'm with you. I'm absolutely with you. And my heart rate still up there it's still going So at the red line that you want that's kind of what's the one that they go up in the in the Red Rocks in Utah. It is hard line like that where you they carve out a trail. Just out of a downhill hotline is saying hotline more like Shrek Rhythm Slash Monster Cup. Yes yeah it's like a normal downhill race but will the jumps much much bigger bigger jumps in downhill rice and the sections in between the jump Sahara as well. So it's just like a way way hotter. I guess doctorates and you're like making having like a super cross rates that has bigger jumps unusual. Okay take a job at a longer weep section. It'd it'd be like supercross race at two on steroids like a super bowl thyroid steroids. Yeah I guess yeah. This was scary for you. You said some of the stuff like Oh shit like for yourself a world class the first time you go. It's a little scary outdistances. You're not like you're saying all the guys. Yeah no seventy four triple seventieth birthday now so we'll jumps in only thirty feet that say woke up to the seventy foot. Jump you've gotTA RECAP Ray speed. So it's Kinda stare to start with the. It's an awesome writes. It's like I- jumping my strong point in downhill and it's what. I really enjoy Oak Mountain bike so I love the race. And it's you get a little nervous. No woke up the show at especially day one. Every right we're going to try out a side that's it's it's different but such a cool rights. I was saying the boys out here. It's the day one of hotline is how I feel every day I answered track society. This again that's funny. That's a cool rice. I can't I can't wait to yeah. NAMARA technology is one of the sponsors of this podcast industry-leading top end repair kits. Offer everything. You need to rebuild your top editor price. They'll keep you riding every single weekend. Chimera Dot Com fully seed is domes on their Pistons as well as rolled on Coated Skirts Mirror. Pistons are a cut above the rest. Thanks thanks to them. Thanks thanks maxis. Thank you Scotia and also of course affects our race. Tech Bernard Kerr here on the privateer island podcast so I probably should have done my homework before a so. Just excuse. Use Me on this. But what's your finish last year in downhill in World Cup. What'd you finish? I broke my aunt outfits. I didn't even know maybe. Twenty four th were you were. You broke Fifteenth Series on me. Yeah I started off a bit bit it up and down that I was hoping going to be talked to him this series. If if my season gone I wanted I should have been should have been right there. I think I was. I was going direct shot. I would trends. Let's say so. Yeah didn't quite finish. I wanted but I came out with some speed. At the end of the season my goal was to win the rebel-held end of the season. I was right. I got this letter this race every the light I was fully committed so that was a good season. I guess that Sharon is it like Moto where Play top ten world. Cup Downhill guys are doing well financially. Yeah Talk Ten top ten guys making good money they don't make supercross hemlock maybe it's top Guy Winnie the American guy. He he claimed on an interview the email a million a million dollars a year all in bonuses and wage. What we think he is making a million here knows? I know everyone's out there. I'd say the top top guys made on half a million. It depends ends. You know it's it's a coast bolt whereas like the top ten guys can do really well with you have a strong social media as good results. That can really help you out in in announcing biking so it's not all about the results you have cool video at its out or have good social media and that's really gonNA help you like get paid become a personality in the school as well so that that's Kinda matter around. We're seeing that in Moto two. We're definitely in that in Moto. You know yeah well. I think it's shows a lot like a lot of the reasons why you guys fits really another guy. That's winnings obviously Batasuna Leon. V get as much exposure possible. And if you can get exposure icy without coming fifth that's a great right. You'll get the product out that all these fans are saying like you see actual. Everyone wants to buy stuff easily races. No now I think it's a it's a really good 'til the top guys in downhill and not hurting for sure. This is Anaheim excursion. Search for you helping you out in the mountain bike world or is everybody the mountain bike world saying what the effort you doing. I've got it was I bid. Welcome last year with what it was a giant with that that's at I was serious about it. Cites isolates helping me out. I don't know definitely got my fair. Share hates US online on there right now on. We have a big website called pink bike. Ride so I'm access and people that definitely are Bene- CAFTANS back. It's funny dude. I think it's great when you read some of the comments. They think they know. More more than Jeremy McGrath and I don't think they do somehow. Yeah the mountain bike world had some hey as well most of them are pretty cool. So hopefully it's helping me out. Oh yeah I would think so. I was just curious how you got your license but I know there's different rules for European guys for these guys. Don't go to supercross future stuff. So imagine you fall under that category. It's like you buy a release. And then they send some like from your home federation minds the AC something through today am and the F.. Lamb they a issue. A license in the prices for the licenses only came out last week apparently so I technically don't have the license yet apparent in the West. I think as long as you're as long as you're sanctioning body says okay. This guy is legit can ride. You know you're good to go so I was on the phone law and I I thought it was too easy initially and cool out again and she got yes Bernard. I've told you twice joining. This is how you get. I'm not I'm just double checking before I keep running my mouth even more. I want to make sure that we can do this. It's too late now bro. You're in now you gotta do on his is too late and we call people coming out and yeah family and I got really good friend back home medicines to your show and I remember across the UK who call and he said Tomase right. You can get your license. Yeah well good. 'cause I just put my flight data in this and he'll be stuck listens this we're in deep now m. c. m. c.. Go down the line with stuff and hang out think MACs just now said Lewis said the other day I think you. I think that Jeremy and I are going to signing in the pits the race. Oh Yeah we're in so so over our head so date on so serious so fast await really going on this honestly like it's been the best experience already like but not to take these at these opportunities often life. I think the whole reason behind it is I I was like I don't want to get to try and do a supercross right. Should've tried Sierra it lightly mad so try and the amount Jeremy in everyone's come on board is going to be amazing amazing. I honestly appreciates it. So it's it's a childhood dream on a state. I wonder if you were like two years ago or last year. Like one of my buddies forgot about that bet like I wonder. I wonder if there's still remember I still have to do that. That's awesome and saying we're Having a great time with that the the casing the triple crash or your worst downhill mountain bike crash. What's worse right now? I guess they taste bad downhill mountain bike crash got knocked out so bad. It was terrible. The mountain bike one of had one really me back one that the case I'm still having now in case the trip webby sleeping at at that I'd like back ribs and my right leg is Thirty sources so none of biking I know I can just get back home and I'm good again. You know like it's so humbling supercross ready something with it. Being so bad added something like two hours and try and hit the woods and look at it but how still so bad like it's ridiculous. I'm like I'm trying as hard as like hands. Hands apply myself be good still so bad so I guess that's why the triple was stereo again. Bet On good of this. I'll do the triple time. It was I read the other day. Go back to track. Is that right. You pay just quickly. Peer pressure believe insight instead on. Yeah I mean that's probably the best right will crash. That's probably the best. Yeah don't forget about right. Just get it done. That's it so are you. Yeah are you going to stick around and Watch Glendale Anaheim to or anything or head back home. Less right wasn't the seventh of January on the might try and stay. Okay now Jeremy's guy so they might have inhabiting request degrees race the weekend off the semi hang out that more to just chill to write several. It's honesty so so cool like now. We're like tomorrow we're going out to the PC track at Glen. Helen and Jeremy's coming along and bones suspension. which is I as I keep saying? I realize how lucky I'm with this bet. It's so exciting. But I'll show London you supercross tracks Mer a- and also to some people don't think about either like and you know you've been writing supercross stuff but like having your bike vowed and sprung for. supercross is a huge huge deal.

Renthal Reaction: Ryan Dungey Leaves GEICO Honda

"Welcome everybody to another rental reaction podcasts. I know we just did one. But as we talked about when we started these if news drops we're going to try to get on board and get this information out and try to analyze it and break it all down. Rent Rent Dot com a fraction of a second a few grams a couple of millimeters. It all counts. Welcome to the winning world of rental. The speed global leader in manufacturing designs in sixty nine rental has become notorious for relentless obsession detail and quality through the commitment to produce the finest products on the market today. Fat Bar thirty six just came out and check it out online and as well. The old seven eighths bar still around still kin twin wall. Of COURSE JEREMY MCGRATH. Debuted thing back in the late ninety s and blew everybody's minds away and they have the traditional fat bar as well so rental dot com for more information with me on the line to talk about Ryan Dungy sudden departure from the GEICO. Honda teams rentals on. What'S UP Paul? How are you? What'S UP Steve? Yeah I guess yeah definitely something newsworthy for us to talk about I I almost feel like we should just call Ryan get his opinion. But we're just GONNA speculate but it is it is on. It is odd for sure. Big FANFARE ANNOUNCEMENT. Dungy being part of the GEICO. Honda team buying into it He was there at the opening rounds. He was very involved from what I could see like meeting with riders talking to media all that Kinda stuff. He's not well. He wasn't like a silent partner away from the team like he was on. He was in and all in and helping to try to help the team win races. So you this was something that was really cool and really need to see the initial the initial announcement. Though Paul was a little surprising. Yeah it was really surprising right so I I mean maybe maybe what it was is he rode on a while ago and had pretaped Barzan. He just didn't really like it right and sit right now. Now I mean again. Just speculating I guess. The original arrangement was was always kind of interesting to me right. Because I don't think any anybody any sound person especially with your own finances would buy into racing per se. Those just like write a check to a racing. I never thought that was it. And maybe that was it but I still don't today to to this day. Don't think that was it but there was talk during the summer for a while that Grondahl was trying to exit the team and there was some talk about the race jobs a theory that I had heard that made a lot of sense to me was Was that maybe Ryan purchase the rain shop and he was kind of a property owner in that was his way of getting some ownership team and finding a more active role and starting to work with writers and go to the races and do all those things he wants to do right because he's in that transition period which has to be hard right. He's been doing this for his whole life. And now it's kind of just stopped and the next step is hard to find similar to what you had heard. I heard the same thing he'd bought into some real estate with the team. And so yes an easy way to make a million dollars. Race team is to start with two million. That's the old joke but Ryan had actually purchasing some concrete assets. That are part of the team. And you know those things acquire value over time and everything so kind of what I heard but then there's that obviously jeff my shack Minnesota Guy. They've known to- Forever Jeff's apart owner along with Ziggy and a Mike Grungo. Who who did he start planet fitness or owns planet fitness is? I don't know if he started it or not. But know yeah. Big Part of an analysis als- also eighty s gear at one point and now they're ABCD and yeah we'd heard that Grondahl share was going to change and that's fine that's all well and good and getting assets and everything else but as I said Paul like donges involved like he was intense. He was involved. He's talking to AMA. He was talking to the riders. This was not just going to sit back here and own a piece of the team. He was actively involved in the raiders. Lives like calling them and dealing with the racist so to go from what was the off year and a half two years too wide open again with a new baby. Those a big step for rhyme. Yeah I think so right and I think that has to be part of it just having gone through it myself like you know having had a child and the transition that you make at home with your wife and your life right. It's it's different so I imagine that's part of it right they I. It seems like they waited for Ryan to retire before they started their. You know having kids and having a family and and then Ryan's gone again so on the weekends so I feel that might be part of it but I also feel for Ryan Bit. It's it's got again. It's gotta be hard to transition rights but doing this for such a long time and he has so much knowledge to share with these younger. Kids and Ryan climb was kind of impressive right. I mean he came from a class at Loretta. Lynn's all of a sudden was was a title guy within a couple of years so A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE. And Yeah so the the weird part was also how sudden it was. Obviously we never heard about it as well. But what do you make of how he left? Ktm how Katya on responded to it. Right exactly I from what I hear from good sources is that. Ktm was super pissed. That Ryan did this Ryan was going to be mentored as a team manager in the DACOSTA role in Harrison. Was there now so either Ryan was going to be like a rotter coach or you know a a rider liaison or whatever while he ended the technical stuff and Ryan's announcement of gyco deal really shock. Atm and from what I heard at the time he didn't want to be as involved with Ktar as they wanted him to. Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But I heard that again from good sources like they wanted him the racists. He's like no. I don't want to do that. And then he goes and buys into GEICO and he's not at all the races but dude he's there. He's intense like he missed his thirtieth birthday because he's at the races he was he valentine's Day because he was at the races at the shoprite like he was all in he was all in so the part about being all in with them him. Not Wanting that. Maybe it was different. 'cause there's an ownership stakes gyco but it's a little weird but he abruptly toll Katie. I'm like Hey I'm out. I'm done and they're like what so. It was a shock there. Yeah allegedly I. I don't know if you've heard this too but and I don't know maybe one of our international Listeners can investigate this. But what do they have a kate damage? Call the hall of Champions or champions or the museum or something. I had allegedly heard that there was talk or or even action to pull out of Ryan. Dungy imagery out of that deal. I don't know after this after the switchover happened again. This is total just allegedly speaking. But but yeah I think that gives you an idea. Even if that rumors was out there it gives you an idea of. Ktla was upset So the only thing I can think of is that maybe Ryan voice wasn't being heard as as loud as he wanted to be heard a KTM. I think when he when he has the ownership opportunity and he's already in business with with with my shack on the intent. Side right is just another business venture with a trusted friend that also lives in Minnesota. Just a a mentor right. I would I would. I would imagine he looks at Jeff as a mentor So I thought I was thinking this fits right. You can have more of a voice. He has an ownership stake. And he's also mentoring younger writers right when you're at KTM you're mentoring the 450 guys. And I feel like a little bit different. I BET YOU PEOPLE. I bet you the younger kids in there. You know the teenagers. Listen Ryan a lot differently than a four fifty title. Contender would right. Yeah yeah absolutely. So he's apart from Geico from what I hear. The ownership part of it is gone to like. He's not silent. You didn't step back as far as the racist. He's also he's not evolved anymore and the ownership level so I don't know how that goes the GRONDAHL share which I had heard originally that he had taken over so I don't know anything about that but he is not involved in the ownership any more of it so that never really got that. All those is never got dotted and t's never got cross to finalize that deal and I think I mean there's lots of people that want to talk about them. Leaving in kind of get. The real story was on the phone a couple of people last night and you know from what I it. It was a combination of time and not quite being fit for. It was combination of both things as you said new baby at home he Ryan is all in his type as driven and team. The team from what I hear was surprised how into it. He was how in he was how involved he was deep in it. Involved with all the riders all the parents all the trainers all the agents. Everything and they were like. Oh okay no problem but they were surprised and sponsors to I heard I mean I feel like this. This happen kind of suddenly. I mean because just through you know industry close friends in and obviously we hear a lot of things that we never speak about or can't speak about but I I think he's very evolved even in the sponsorship side for from You know very recently too so you know I I. Don't I feel like this decision happened? Probably in the last week or two. Yeah I think the person I talked to said Ryan was all in and then when he's not all in he's all out that's what they like like like he's not going to be like. Hey Listen I've still want to keep the ownership but I'm not gonNA come to the races that much because it's not working out it's like I don't want the ownership. I don't WANNA come raises. I'm out right. Yeah so this person was like oh like wow so the weird thing though and I and I didn't confirm this for myself I probably should. It was real easy to do but apparently Ryan struck all mentions of GEICO office office instagram. Now that's what I was told to not his twitter yet but officer. I'M GONNA go there right now while we're doing this. I should have done this before the show but but okay so I believe it's true because somebody else a couple people told me that he said the farewell notice and then yeah so there was photos of him riding a Gyco bike a Honda and they're gone and as is I. Think the post 'em as as the post saying that he's on board so so does that. Does that make you think that this could possibly have something to do? Okay Tim well yes. But the leading these posts doesn't mean it didn't happen Ryan so I from what I understood. It was a it was a party. That was fine for everybody. You know nobody. Nobody was angry. One of the first people I talked to talk to Ryan the other day. So but why would you? How would you deleted all? Why why would you do that? That's odd I I mean I don't have that many followers you have more than I do. Do People go back and talk shit on old posts or is it just something that you just WanNa wipe clean and I guess people are going to blow up your feet no matter what right even if you post photo of a chicken people it'd be like hey what's up with the? Geico thing you know what I mean so yeah right yeah. That wouldn't matter. I don't think but from what I hear. It was fine. The partying was fine. It was all understood. Everybody was on page on board with it. So that's odd to delete all that stuff so maybe he's angering yes to to do something back a KTM right you know. I don't know it's it's odd. I guess it didn't go the way Ryan wanted to. You know I guess so. There was some stuff that didn't jive with how he wanted to. And plus the time commitments of the people. I talked to people close to the situation and they stressed. That really was a time thing. Not One hundred percent but a vast majority of the reason was just. Hey I'm not ready for for being all in and I think that's again that's just time in his life and transitioning. I think it was. It was really hard for me when I transitioned from a from a mechanic to the other side of the industry and I can imagine it's four times as hard to transition from a writer to being at home and and yet not just. The the phone's not raise much. You're not nearly as busy. You don't have to go to the gym. Don't have to train and ride and everything kinda stops right and also the income changes right. I mean I'm sure money isn't a big deal but nobody wants to just be money as out of their savings to live right. I'm sure you won't find some way to generate a living and leave what you've earned in there so I mean again. We're speculating on a lot of personal things. Here in the we should probably just call Ryan but But yeah it's big news right. Everyone every we were tagged all over twitter for people to ask us to talk about it so yeah absolutely. No I feel like this. Rental reaction was Was well versed. Well needed I should say it's odd. It's odd that had happened. It'd be weird moment in history when we I can't remember when I'm Dungy owned part of GYCO. And they had a guy shirt wrote a Honda. Remember that and then yeah. So it's it's it's a weird part of history and from what I gather. Just you know. It really is a little bit of that. Mostly that reason. There was some frustrations by Ron on some ends of that. He couldn't do things that he wanted to do. But mostly it was like. Hey I'm I'm all in and and maybe Lindsay is wife was like what are you doing? I'm he's probably coming home stressed right. We've both worked on a race team. There ain't nothing like it's yeah. Everyone sees us on Saturday. And all you got such a great job. You've traveled the world racing stressful. There's a lot of drama that comes around with it right and all the all the things that people don't see and hear it adds a lot of stress. Maybe it was just like what are you doing? Are you serious look at you? You're stressed out That could be part of it right. Yeah yeah absolutely. Yeah so I mean. I think he's going to dedicate more time to the intense bicycle side of things. He's involved inadequate shock and the the intense guys have relaunched that brand and build that brand and I heard he was going to be more involved with those guys again and do something with that peyser nation. All of us take your nation are happy to welcome back back onboard but yes super super odd and you know. Hey sometimes you bite off more than you can chew. I guess and whether you're a legend in the sport or or Schlub like me and you sometimes you get into situations Paul. Listen Hey you were. Dean Wills Mechanica Jeff Ward racing for two days or whatever before you said Whoa Day by day before you were like I'm out of here. Yeah absolutely sometimes you just you jump in the wrong hot tub and you just you know you gotta get out so Yeah who knows right but But yeah these things happen. We all make mistakes and and again. I think the biggest the biggest challenge for Ryan is just him transitioning and luminous probably hard for him. And and yeah. We've all done it. We all get older will change jobs and and and yeah just spin up and you go through. Also I think when you're Ryan and you get on board and your so Ryan's you know. Got His whole program his whole life and and everything else is voted with him and whatever he wanted to do and he became a multi shopping. I think I would imagine that when I when I when I spoke to people who said Ryan was frustrated. A little bit about this. I would imagine dealing with parents and kids. Because that's what the guys guys are their kids. Ronald probably like wait. W T F like what like I like. You know you got to clear all this stuff through parents and kids and all of this yeah and the and the GEICO team is big. Right now Ryan's ever been on team as big as that team. We're talking team has five pros three three or four amateurs a giant shop. Huge staff All that just. It's a big big team. A big operation and more money more problems more staff more. That's just that's just how things go right. I mean I I remember when we went to two trucks and two teams at pro circuit. It stressed everybody out and the entire team. Kinda got worse because we lost you know we we. We weren't able to focus as much on the goal at hand and that was to win the two fifty class so I mean I'm sure that some of it and Ryan grew up in a really good situation. I think he has a really good relationship with his parents and family and and so maybe started encounter some things that were just super formed him right that that he was like what the Hell I never dealt with this stuff like my parents weren't cases or you know what I mean. Yeah no I think that was some of what I'm hearing but I'm really I'm hearing. It was a time thing. And he was all in and it was like. Wait a minute you know. So but but the fact that he deleted everything on so on. Instagram is very odd and the fact that he didn't maintain a bit of ownership to make financial gain in the future is also odd. But Hey like somebody told me. Another person told me. He's the all in or all out again. That's that's fair I I kind of I relate that way I think you know to Steve if I'd do anything on it. I think Ryan's the same way like you're GonNa do something. Do it right if not you. Don't do it. Yeah Yeah I agree I agree. So that's the rental reaction for Dungy leaving Geico that's what we know will snoop around this weekend in Atlanta for sure and try to find out some more and I'll reach out to Ryan and ask him if he wanted to comment I guarantee you. He won't because he's Ryan but I will reach out to him. That's good reaction and try to try to get something but before we go something on rentals website that you talked about on Monday. Show that maybe we can promote a little bit on here the bar the Bar measurement tool. That's something I really want everyone to know about. And obviously purchasing a handlebar and finding the right bent for us always very very difficult So you know I see. So many times people walk into a dealership. They pick up a handlebar and they hold it like. They're going to figure out what they exactly what they want and then they go home put on the in the under by the garage. They don't like it so if you go to rental DOT COM We have something called the works that tool in your action. You actually can overlay images of handlebars and all the specs are in there. You can actually put it in your motorcycle and it'll pull up your own bar And then you overlay any rental handlebar that we make so. If you're looking for something with just a little bit you know less height but same sweep you can find it on there. And you can purchase handlebar with with conviction. Know that you picked out exactly what you need so yeah. I just want everyone to know about that. Please use it. I used it even when I did work at Renzo. Fantastic no good good to know rand. Paul Dot Com. You know the name you know. That didn't know the championship. Save One and the Writers. They work with so please check them out. Rental Reaction Show W T.F with Ranji and GEICO Honda. Thanks appreciate it. We'll see this weekend.

I've known him for a long time and I'm surprised we've never sat down done one of these podcast one on one. But it's time now Paul Curry. What's up man? How are you? Let's go on honesty. You start listening to you so you don't WanNa do this. That's awesome. That's the best part of this. No no I'm excited to do it. I don't know if we have enough material to talk about my career at some other stories. That are probably way better anyways. Well I've got some stories from our group of mutual friends and I'm going to ask you a false. And well. They're all. They're all kids now. St No no they're all. Pg We may. I make sure they're yeah so that wasn't involved. I wasn't me wasn't me so what's going on now with you what's happening. You're down in Florida. Yup Yup Lee. I My wife and I have two daughters to me. Live in Sarasota Florida and I started a kind of like a home. Automation security company audio video stuff. It was similar to kind of what my parents did growing up and last few years it's grown to be pretty good so now read tolsey systems and I'll give you guys the phone number and stuff. Yeah listen if someone wants a deal down there. In Sarasota just mentioned pulp. Amax for pulp dash ten percent. You'll add ten percents. Come Red Dog told me usually takes you two or three times. They get a system correct though he always says the but Man I'm probably not the best at it in the world but I've hired some amazing guys so I don't. I'm I'm diesel. No It's good. I'm glad everything's going well. You don't ride anymore right. No right at all. But was there not a mini comeback? Like two years ago as in. You got a bike three years again. Well at some point at three years ago I got a bike and I got it from through GEICO. The team and I Dunno I wrote it probably four five times. I never washed the thing the first three times I wrote it. It was leaking radiator fluid so I would just pour water over the bike that cool down when I got and you know what I I never. I don't really like I don't WanNa work on a bike you know. I'm kind of spoiled but I never really enjoyed that part of it. I don't WanNa ride up and put it away. You hadn't really race many four strokes I think. Star your last year at Star where you're on a four-stroke then that was the last year. Three Is the first really amaha. And that was it. It was really good but the bike. Man I mean we would stall and I could never get the firkin thing started so I just south of me crazy your introduction before strokes isn't good like you just like twenty eight cakes every time. I did it so you wrote the Geigo thing three or four times and sold it. Yeah yeah one of my friends. Low brother's body was like. Oh you want to sell them. They're like oh it sure I hadn't written on forever. So that was it for the comeback. That was it. Yeah Yeah you don't WanNa get hurt or and riding stupid. Things eventually had happened. So were you were you at without with Truman when he weeded himself on. Yeah that was like my Fourth time writing he. I literally time I my ear off or Kayode itself. I made by literally. Yeah yeah it was like he attract about a half lab? And he just. I don't know I think he was confused. As Larry was that over jumped tables I think it was two separate totally jumps. I don't think they were supposed to be combined. You know I was literally wrote in behind him and I just see on my dude and all I see is hanging in the air and lands and he just explode on impact.
