"They're going. Hey he's paying a price. Let's go coach. We were just talking about the fact that dave is more of a peacemaker. you're into conflict resolution. As we go forward here for joe gibbs racing in the future a lot of changes coming for nascar and the next year's especially next year with the next season with the next gen car coming in twenty twenty two as you guys look forward and the structural in the business changes. You're facing. I'm sure they're going to be some hard decisions and choices that need to be made much like you talked about in the book. Day of towing daniels warez Sorry but we're not going to have a spot for you next your. How do you apply that looking. Forward into twenty twenty two and beyond with so much happening in nascar. No i think for me what i have always felt whether it was in football or over here that the number one thing for me to be focused on the team so then when it comes to these hard decisions it could be an individual that you're gonna have to you know. Let go the way for me to deal with that these things i wanna push that off. I don't like that. I don't wanna do that. But if i do that. Am i hurting the team. And i think almost every single person that over a period of time that i've set with and had to do something like in football cut players over here make decisions and bring people in say. Hey look you know We're going to have to go on a different direction. Every single time that i tell them. If i don't do this. I feel like i'm hurting the team. And that's the reason why i have to do this and that to me. Most most of the time really think people understand and they would say you know but for me. That's the driving force. It's the team many times. I don't want that. I don't want conflict. I don't wanna have to deal with that the easy thing. It'd be put it off but a you know if you put it off then you're hurting the team. So that becomes the guiding principle for me. And i think over the years so you talked about changes coming up if you think about our thirty seasons. We've seen a lot of change already again. We went from a one car. Fifteen person organization to four cars and cup four cars and xfinity five hundred people three hundred fifty thousand square feet. We've seen everything from you know again. You think about all the different phases of racing. Where the you know there have been changes and so each time. It's this is the biggest one. How are we going to react. And i think we're gonna play a lot of the same things it's going to be people. It's going to be trusting you know we've we've got a lot of history for doing you know doing things. Hopefully the right way. I will say one of the one of the traits of coach. Both in the nfl in here is whenever there has been maybe more change than usual on a particular year. He's generally responded well whether it was the nfl with a strike. Or you know nascar with a major change and the idea is if you've got the right people and you're getting after it and they all care you're going to respond hopefully quicker and better than everybody else. So we we. We try to view the changes. You're talking about as an opportunity. Hey let's shake things up a little bit. Let's see where we come out our goal. Is you know coach. Says all the time. He wants this year for his grandkids. This is not a short-term play for us so our interest is what's the best for the sport so hey if this is gonna if there's going to help the sport were get we're we're we're all for it and as coach likes to say as long as we we we just wanna win the most racist so whatever whatever we have to do that will continue to be the goal here and again yes. These will be big changes. Maybe there unlike we've never had but keep in mind. We've had a lot of changes over the years. And i think it'll be up to all the teams you know. It's it's the same for everybody so everyone will have. We'll have to respond. And and again i hope as we look to three years from now we go. Hey this is where all very optimistic about the sport we've got new ownership coming in by all counts. Tv numbers look good. Everything looks like i think we're poised. We've got a bright future. We've got a grandson in the building. Who looks like he's pretty good so we've got. We got some things. We're all pretty pretty excited about you. Know looking in the future to be honest with you pretty pretty bullish on on the future of nascar and one thing i would say that to sports and been in the nfl nascar. What i've learned about pro sports. I say that they change ruffy thirty percent a year and so both both sports. I've been in and we know in the business world that's happened at least at that rate and so if you're setting back you're following behind you better be going and there's gonna be new changes for sure and i can walk through them in football and i can walk through them. How many we've seen here and we're getting ready to embark on. Probably one of the biggest changes we've been in. So i think our world where it is if you're in business i can tell you if you're in power. Sports is going to be changing so get ready and get with it. The only constant in life is change and this team. Joe gibbs racing certainly done a great job keeping up with all the changes. The book is taking the lead by jobs.

"Jd really cared about people and the stories are coming back after he went with lord. Stacks on my desk of stories about how he treated someone you know Little girl sent me a picture of her and she has to struggle walking and she talked about how. Jd met her in the lobby. One time our and and he took her on a tour through the whole building. She wrote back every year. Jd's she sent me pictures she that was that was relationship that he started in all but those stories are there over and over again. It says a lot. Because i have a tendency to go right sometimes. I i go to the big things you know. The main jd went to the individual all add one one of the testimonies of that you know at shady service which you can see at gd gibbs legacy dot com one of the great. You talk about a life well-lived but one of the things you point out is an hour and a half service not once. Did somebody talk about an accomplishment from work. What they were talking about was the influence that the that he'd have on them now. Many of those came through the platform of work and sogeti was really good at what he did but he knew how to use it as a platform for other things. And that's what that's what affected people. That's what you know. That's what affected me. That's what affected so many people. The joe was talking about is is that it was. Hey look we're called to be really good at what we do. Again i think that's a biblical mandate as hey be excellent so so as a race team you know who want. Who's gonna care about what we do like. Nobody cares what you think if you stink so be really good lead. A lot of apps a lot of races but jd had this keen awareness of once. We do that. It's that is to create a platform to do other things whether it's giving whether it's impacting people whether it's using it as a platform and i think that was really the example kind of a barometer for all of us is watching how he did that. in really in every facet of the company and his life seems a good place to note that proceeds from this book. Taking the lead. We'll go to the jd. Gibbs legacy fund the young life ministry the talked so the portion that would go to the author right is going to be donated that and jd's legacy fund funds urban ministry here at young life at a young life in charlotte some of the under-resourced high schools and young life and ministry. That was very dear to jd. And i in high school and Really important to us and our company now and so. We're really grateful to be able to do that. So i i joke. That's that makes me Be able to shamelessly plug the book. Because i know that the that of portion is all being donated to something. That's great that's great to hear. Jd was a special person. I've got some more questions about him. I wanted to eventually. But i i just want to go back to to dave story really quickly coach and it seems like his big breakthrough was deciding that he was gonna sell joe gibbs racing t shirts on consignment at redskins game. I heard dave side. That i'm wondering your side of that. I'm not sure i told him he. Yes he was definitely okay. We being aggressive abi be at a young guy that's going after But actually dave handled a bunch of early projects. We had a van deal. Took off on as i you know for most people. I encourage them particularly if the young people. If you want to know something about something are you worried about you know. Should i get into the best thing to do is divan because is just get after it because you'll learn by mistakes and all but you can't sit back and guess what something is going to be and i think day took off that way and it was different projects jumping on them going after your automate. Some of those bombed out but some of them you know and you see that's how you hit a home run sometimes too so being aggressive getting after i think is a big part of young people starting out in life that aggression that you had talked about this in the book as well when you first moved to charlotte you were still dating the woman who become your wife stacy and she was still in virginia. So you're commuting back and forth six hours at a time. Fridays and sundays and then working here full time so it was you know why that is they have we have a saying. He outpointed his coverage. As you say that. I did know for that. I for that. I really year and a half that i was down here before. I got married pretty much. Every other week i would go to the race and then every other week i would go to washington. Yeah or go back to virginia. See her so yet. No we'd we'd work in leave on friday and it's funny we early on. We had this deal with van conversion company and they it. Let me borrow this Pop top van. That had you know it was like a big conversion van. And i'm i'm twenty three years old and was it was funny that i would drive around. This have drove around in this. Big conversion van and i would go back and forth to virginia To see her and her dad who's kind of one of my spiritual piero's now but you know at the time. He was very strict and she was his oldest daughter and he was very protective. And so the idea was. You gotta have a real job before you're gonna ask her to marry song very motivated for many reasons. I didn't want to let the gives down. And i didn't wanna let my future father-in-law down. And i wanted to marry stacey so i was like i better make something of this or or this is going to take forever. We'd already been dating since she was seventeen and eighteen so we dated all through college. Now i'm out of college. And i'm like all right. I'd like to get married at some point here and so yeah i had. I had no fallback plan. So i was very motivated to make it work. Obviously that sounds like a ton of commitment there that you put in not just for the personal side but the professional side doing it all at once and you know you talked about david. The saying that's not. My job is unacceptable jobs racing. And i'm just curious. I'm restore coach on this one. Do you have any examples of that of doing things at you. Lead by example in that way doing things that people might not expect the team owner to do to show people. Hey nothing is out of bounds here for hat well. The first year. When i started the idea was i was going to continue to coach. And the guys and don meredith and jimmy may car. The team would take the race team. And so you know that. Was the game plan. Well after that year. I decided you know coy was playing football stanford i'd missed most of jd's football games. It william and mary. So i made a decision to get out for family so i could go see koi play football in the at stanford and then all the my passion of racing so i had those two reasons and so when i stepped out you know that was that was different from me as i was starting a new life and so we took off in that direction. S what pat nye said. Hey look let's go to charlotte and Virginia was just fantastic for us to get coach..

"They wise up today where we are and now he's the president of the company. So that's a journey. I think that's exciting for people to hear and then of course how a company gets built. I love those stories of when you talk to people that do these outstanding johnny morris started selling a few things in the back of his day has hardware store and today the the i fascinated. That's the great thing about america. I love that their stories. There were people say i have a vision. I wanna do something they take off and do it. Those are some of the greatest stories in america. Thank you so. I think days fits in there and there's a lot to it. I learned a lot about jobs racing. Because dave was there from the outset as i think i the unpaid intern. Eventually you got paid a few months in after you prove it. Sell t-shirts at yeah. But you started out as an unpaid intern here out of a room closet with no power outlet and this wasn't this building by the way this is the paid part i like. I like the broom closet. More than i liked the unpaid part. Yeah that is true so that was more than twenty years ago. That was I guess would have been nineteen ninety-two yet. Ninety ninety two ninety three so you has about twenty really about twenty eight years ago which is like crazy and your relationship with coach goes back even further than that you met. Jd gibbs coach's son while you guys were going to middle school together experts kenya. Yeah no and i talk a lot about. We became friends in middle school and and they had just moved to town and wasn't the greatest start for the skins they started. Oh and five. And i wasn't sure if jd was going to be my friend long before they left town and gratefully. They didn't yeah. We went to high school and jaydee. I've shared the story lot. Jd was in to say he was. The all american kid would be like an understatement museum. Great looking. He was the quarterback of the football team. I joke he drove a dang z. Twenty eight like he was straight out of out of hollywood end but was the just the nicest guy and and really would befriend different. People and i was one of his friends. And honestly i would always. Jd had a lot of friends and my start here. One of the things. That stood out that i talk in. The book is j. d. Had a lot of friends and could have asked anybody and asked me and so my motivation early on was really not to let either of them down. J. j. d. could ask anybody but he asked me and i remember later in life him saying when i asked him. Why did you pick me. He said because. I knew i could count on you and so i remember thinking well that i'm not gonna let you down and i felt the same way about coach. And so you you go into it going you know. Unlike driver or a crew chief where they have a specific drivers are the best in the world at what they do and the crew chiefs the best in the world you know with with me i mean again i joe talks a lot about average joes. I really am kind of an average joe. There wasn't one skill that i had. So i've got a i said i got to figure out how to earn my keep here and not let them down without. It was going to look different because driver. Just says i'm gonna go win. Racism that's all. I'm why didn't touch the cars. I didn't make the cars go fast. So what we're areas. I could do that. And that's kind of how it all started. But it really was them. You know jd saying hey i want to have my buddy come down here because we needed some help and coach san hail. I'll give you a shot and and so not really not wanting to let them down. That's kind of how it all started and so over those twenty eight years. You've got from unpaid intern to president of the entire company and coach. Did you see from the outset. That dave alpern would become that kind of leader in your company because dave great stories in the book about when he was a kid and he would go to the restaurant where you guys would have dinners after redskins games after you wanted. Dave would say that as soon as he walked in the room. You would say hey burns here. Did you know there was something special about this guy for well i think. Jd you know. Obviously they were buddies but through that process of them growing up. They were around the house a lot. And you get a chance to see him. I talk about playing football out there in the snow with them. So you get to know somebody. That's the best way to hire somebody or get somebody to come on. Your team is if you know him. And of course j. d. had real confidence there and i think the other thing for me. I remember my coaching days. We were in a tough situation but the redskins replacing monday night game against the cardinals and i always talk to the team the night before. I'm too nervous a day of the game. She got to wait all the way to monday night. I go out from the team. And i just said this. I said if you guys got anything to give the the redskins you need to give it tonight. We we got a real problem. Got down header lord's prayer. When we stood up. I had twelve guys. Go through four super bowls with me. Three of them upfront had tears. They were crying as so my point is i've felt if you can get people that come on your team that here about the team. Those are the people that come early. Stay late got hard. And and and they are loyal to what's taken place. And i felt like dave over those years. I think. Jd so at early and they were buddies and they were actually three of them. They came on board there and they wound up miraculously going into different areas and their expertise to help build. What have today so. I think dave cared appreciate. That and coach was gracious enough to write the forward and it was actually kind of awkward. This is actually awkward. Because i didn't pay. That is true. But i i asked him to write the ford again. He wrote a. I don't know if i've actually even thanked him l. Take this opportunity again. The words meant a lot and again he talks about some of what he said there in the ford. And but you don't think that you know when you're a young kid you're just going you gotta complex and i was terrified. Well i talked about being terrified of jimmy. I was terrified of pretty much. Everyone in the building because the nickname were the college pukes. These three guys that weren't racers and we came into this building with all hardcore racers. That have been racing. Their whole lives led by. Jimmy maker. Led by jimmy maker whose nickname most people did not people who know him now. Didn't know his nickname was mad. Dog and sounds like a guy who likes color. Yeah coach went in and just say. Hey here's three guys. You picked the first fifteen. But i got three or four. You one was eighty. One was todd. One was me figure something out for them and my goal. Every day was to not be noticed by. Jimmy may car to be where he wasn't you know don't embarrass jd. And joe but don't get noticed by jimmy that was. That was my deal coach. Dave describes in the book that you like people who you call but busters Which is based on character and heart and talent and how they fit into the. Jj our culture. I think you just said that. Essentially knowing day before he came here you look for people who fit that culture was dave. I guess what you never for about buster. Yeah i think. I think he is and i think that group was that initial group was obviously. Jimmy may carleen everything We still got. I think seven of that original.

"The nice thing about that is when we hold the relationship with those vendors and something goes wrong and your franchise we own that relation. We can help you. That's very different than if you have your brother or your cousin who ask the insurance company That's doing your insurance and something goes wrong. We don't own that relationship we can't help with that right and so it allows us to be able to really control that and the nice thing about oxy precious we. We take zero dollars from any vendors.

Yeah you seem like kind of doing a lot of researching right now. Kind of don't have a whole lot of time to get into the reinhold. That pendulum will swing back into that. Because you're very talented in that. By the way now a mac client. How are you sir you right there. I am doing awesome. Thanks for the opportunity to talk to you. Gentlemen men on today's show from a business perspective we're talking about trimming the fat the budget of the business. But we're also on a physical side talk about trimming. The fats is business. Kito saas business. He does to you. By the thrive time. Show everybody's on point today all right. So let's let's let's talk about it. I see and i'm not. I'm not gonna paint you into the corner with actual textbook definitions. I'm seeking. I'm just asking you. What is ketosis for people out there who may not be familiar with that which you are striving to achieve right. Now well ketosis win. The body starts burning fat for for your energy. So normally the body runs on carbohydrates and it's a metabolic state and you calicoes because the key toned bodies in your body up. That's why how it gets the name of that but it's a when you have low carbohydrates which is glucose than the body says. Oh we need to go into those fat reserves. We've been saving for a rainy day. And we need to start turning that into into glucose so what what are your diet right now in order to move into the utopia zone of ketosis low carbs. They say you should be below thirty grams a day. Saving twenty grams a day to get into it. And then once you're into ketosis you wanna keep that carb count loan what you did you just look up things that are low in carbs and you kind of count them throughout the day and some things have zero carbs in them. So what do you eating right now. Well i had scrambled eggs and bacon got zero carbon. I had some avocados which is healthy carb but very low in carbs avocados of fatty vegetable and so it was so i had that that those three things and water okay. So you're heavy in the meets low in the week you can't be right and owen the wheats that that's right and the meats and and you might you may be a little backwards beans or kinda high karbi so you wanna stay in green leafy like salads really good to eat and but you wanna watch out on dressings and things of that you just want to be careful what you're eating because if you go above that certain graham count of carbohydrates and you kick yourself out of ketosis and that's kind of a bummer. Because you wanna get into it and then spent about a month my plans to get into it's been about a month l- about ten fifteen pounds and look really good for this task so it's no sweets no alcohol for dr z. For the next. How long what i say well you know six or so and then there is some alcohol. You can't drink by the way. What are you. what are you. What are you drinking. It has a purified spirits like tequila and whiskey's right alcohol's winds are little car. But they're not real karbi but here again you want to look at a lot of it is not the al. It's the mixers you put in it. So that's why you can't drink a mosa because of the orange juice get you okay. Okay and will too. I believe so mad. Have you ever pushed yourself to the ketosis phase out. Your guy likes to work out you ever Gone into an extreme a plan. like z. Note no wheats no sweets new alcohol for doctors. Have you ever done this before i walked with. What tonic are like twenty four hours. Is that tonner. Keita's on it. That's pretty close. The same thing that was in college and there was a whole lot of seriously you. Have you ever tried to do this before. No i've always. I've kind of do it just i don't i've never done gone down the actual i'm too I'm not hard enough on myself. So i usually eat well enough to be able to splurge every once in a while but i have not gone down the route yet. Okay okay what we're gonna do is to go over. Three simple moves to to cut the fat in your body and then three moves to cut the fat in your business. Does that sound good. That's fair okay. So let's get into. We talked about it. And i've i've a super bonus number four for the business to when we get to it okay before so how to lose weight you know wheat. No sweets no alcohol. Very simple three moves book done. Yeah you can make it more complicated you get into the research could. But that's a summary. No now this is how cut fat in your business. One ask yourself whose he non who is a non essential employees now. I know that seem stupid but matt. We've all done. I'm sure you have to use a different term than that after this year. Maybe a little crazy. I'm bringing this up because what happens is whenever there's a tough time and you'll hear a lot of time in government. They'll go well. We couldn't pass the new stimulus bills. Have government has to lay off all nonessential government employees. He started to think well. Why do they work there..

"Or car breaks every week doesn't matter if you're leading half way it stops off the point is you you really. It's a cliche answer but you honestly have to have both now there's some tracks i mentioned daytona some of those really fast tracks. You're literally wide open the whole time. You're mashing the gas a driver would tell you probably eighty percent car on this track. There's other tracks road courses short tracks where it's all finesse. And knowing where to be not putting the car in a bad position it may be eighty percent drivers. Wow again it really depends again. I'm going to call it. Fifty fifty has any good driver would tell you have no shot without a good car and a good team would tell you and we have example after example of that. Where will you know we may be struggling and we switch drivers and literally we win seven races and we change nothing but the driver or vice versa so we have a tangible examples of the driver. You know again. I mean if i'm honest i probably will air more on the side of the driver. Because i've just seen how vitally important the driver is. I mean honestly even more so than a quarterback. I'd say the same thing you have a great nfl team. You don't have a quarterback you got no shot even more so in nascar. You don't have a good driver. You got no shot. Dave your new book there the the new book you wrote there. The new book is called taking the lead winning business principles. That fuel joe gibbs racing. We have time for one. More question. josh wilson coming in hot around the What do you do you. How do you referred to your turn around. Turn for yeah. that's good. Hey i probably have never been an opportunity to interview the president of a racing team. So i'm gonna put on the spot. I'm gonna back into a corner so we have a we have an indoor. Go kart track here. Incredible pizza so i was out there a few weeks ago at the grandkids and i put a seven year old in pigtails into the wall. Coming around turn. Four and i did win. He did win and so. I'm curious with my incredible pizza. Indoor go kart track ribbon. Can i get a at joe gibbs racing. I'm can i get a job as denny hamlin like. He's not feeling well close. Like i mean do. I mean i've got the ribbon. He's a solid plan f. I just wanna know now. I come to charlotte. Do i got a chance. Fifty fifty josh. I will say we're gonna have to be selected. They're they're only going to be a handful of sponsors. Who are gonna wanna controversial driver like you. Because you're you're little edgy. You're you're putting putting seven-year-olds man. I i don't know i'm thinking we got to cut me off. I was awesome fair enough. Dave also also the world wants to know how much duct tape do you use on the idea we have. We have room entire rooms of every color. Duck day to that is no joke after record. Set that i've seen him. I mean i'm. I'm a huge nascar fan but you gotta watch every now and then you know josh. It's funny you were talking about reckon a girl to win. But seriously we have drivers tony stewart. Houston drive around the hall of fame driver. Someone asked him a question about. Hey would you. Would you move a teammate. On the last lap to win a race and he goes are you kidding. I'd wreck my mother to win a race. There are a lot of these drivers. Say that so you're really not that far out there. Just so dave. On nasa recorded are you saying i gotta say i have a shot not zero percent. You're giving me that. You're giving me the jim carey your. There's a smart. There's maybe one in a million watts cart go kart track data. Let you go. do you try outs. Those thing i mean how you scout for good talent i mean if a guy did show up and so it's not as much tryouts is. There are so there are a little short tracks. All around the country would have no idea. I mean every state. On friday saturday night there are these short tracks and so what ends up happening is. It's like any sport you're gonna find him. Someone's going to set themselves apart. They're going to win twelve races and they're going to move up and so we do have what we would call scouts again. We're not as we don't have an army of them but we have a handful of folks that are out looking at those people and you're looking for patterns where someone they've won at every level Yeah so again. A little bit different And again our sport. One of the things nascar's trying to do is make it more accessible to everybody. You know basketball baseball out of stick and ball sports. You know if you're good they're gonna find you when you're gonna have an opportunity to go to college in the play racing different because not every kid has access to go into a go kart or whatever one thing that's changing that is actually i racing and the this idea that kids can actually go online and simulate racing and they had these very very competitive leagues. And there's actually drivers. Who are you know earning their rides in real cars because they excelled in virtual cars. So that's something that i think's going to be a game changer. Going forward but all that to say. Yeah we're we're scouting all the time again. We're a little different than pro sports. We don't really have a bench so if we find a great driver. We can't just say we're going to give you a spot because right now all four of ours are full with pretty good drivers and you can't say we're gonna put you on the bench while we wait doesn't work like that so z. Incredible incredible today. The today's guest is dave alpern president. Joe gibbs racing out. The book is called taking the lead. Winning business principles. That fueled joe gibbs racing day. We really do appreciate you being on the show. And i hope you have a great rest of your day. I really appreciate ya'll having me Again thanks a lot. I really enjoyed it. Well done day take care three.

"James back to you okay. All right nice to meet you. Thanks for sharing your time with us awesome so doctors e mentioned but i have a question about the economics of how how that all works for in in nascar so doctors. He mentioned that he's into horses thoroughbreds. And all that and the khuda bras the is the oh kentucky derby right and so if doctors he owns the horace the horses in the race. The horse wins the race. It gets purse. Oh so now. How does it work. I think you mentioned earlier. On in the in the in the show that seventy five percent of the revenue of the car or the company is generated from sponsors right. so how. how does that work. Who owns the car and does the sponsor of of the you know the purse or whatever. That's called if you win. I mean how is that all of that house all from james. I appreciate you asking that and interestingly this is a this is a college guest lecture that i do on this little exact topic now. I won't take an hour and fifteen minutes to answer it like i do in the class. I'll do it in a minute or two but so so we own the car. So the sponsor of so again we have fourteen. We got fedex. We've got mars. We got stanley black and decker. We got bass pro shops and then all of our cars are toyota cameras. So those companies pay to sponsor us The difference between our sponsorship proposition and another sport is that in our sport. The sponsor actually becomes the identity of the team so fedex denny hamlin drives the fedex camry that ex could sponsor an nfl team for a billion dollars in. They'll never be called denver fedex for example or in nba. They have the patch on the jersey. But they're not called the chicago. Coca-cola's there the bulls with a coke batch. You see what i'm saying. It's a different proposition. In our sport they become the identity the team so we get the revenue from the sponsor. Then we go race and a portion of the tv money and the trackers gets put in a pool and it gets distributed based on your finishing position and that makes up the percentage of our revenue of course when you're budgeting you don't know how many races you're gonna win etc so let's take the daytona five hundred for example. They pay us a check at the end of the daytona five hundred. The way that works half the money goes to the team. Half the money goes to the driver now in our agreements with our drivers and most teams have this. The percentages vary the driver in the team. Take a percentage of that half that they got throw it back in a kitty and that gets divided among all the workers all the employees all the pit crew people all the people who work on the car as opponents so the driver gets some in the fortyish. Call it less than fifty more than forty percent of the revenue. The team gets more than forty less than fifty percent of the revenue. The remainder goes in a pool divided among those five hundred people. We talked about so the beauty of that Is that unlike other sports. You can imagine in other leagues. If dry athletes got paid based on their finishing position. They'd have a lot of motivation to win. So our drivers make a base salary which we pay out of the revenue that i discussed sponsor revenue the purse. They also get a percentage of the race so when they win more they earn more. And which again i think is a is a great model so obviously if a team wins more they get more revenue and in theory the more you win the more sponsorship revenue you can get because sponsors are getting their value. All you know partially from being on national tv and the more laps lead the more you get up three hour commercial again. Unlike most sports where the sponsor has to pay for a commercial in our sport. The sponsor is a commercial for three hours because when denny hamlin lead delay a race it's a fedex commercial for three hours because he's in the front so does that mean that the does that mean that the so that whatever the sponsors one hundred bucks and that's a sunk cost for the year. It doesn't get any sort of return other than through the advertising revenue for instance. It doesn't share in the winnings of the of the of the race. The correct but now part of the model which again is a whole nother. Conversation is each sponsor has sort of a a measurable which is why they're in the sport and the interesting thing is it's different all of them and so you know mars besides winning races as a way that they measure roi fedex. You know one of theirs is how much shipping are. They getting as an example. We have a full-time person at j. Gr that all think about is getting all of our other businesses to ship. The switch their shipping to fedex. So at the end of the year fedex can measure how many hundreds of millions of dollars worth of business got switched over. Because of joe gibbs racing. I forget what we do on the racetrack. There is a business tangible measurable deliverable for them as there is for every one of our partners so racing as part of it again. Are our brands. Expect us to lead a lot of laps and win a lot of races. But that's not enough by itself we have to know what is that formula that they're measuring success on. And how are we delivering on that though zeba booth there sir david in horse racing. There's an there's no way to verify to to the x. Number but there's a big debate on how much is it the jockey. How much is the horse. Yeah in in nascar. I mean i know there's no scientific way to ever prove one way or the other but in your opinion much. How much of it is the car because cars have different engineering. They have different shapes. They have different technology. All cars are yeah right and so how much of it in your opinion is just your opinion the car versus the driver. So i'm going to say again. We this is. This is something we talk about. It definitely depends on the track. But i would say if you want to average it out you could almost call it fifty fifty and and while you have zero zero chance to succeed in nascar without a good driver. I don't care how good your car is. The driver and one of the things. Joe learned early on. I don't care what it costs. We need to have the best drivers and he's right because you can. We got five hundred people in week and bill rocket ships and we have zero chance without a driver said you put the best driver in the world in a soapbox car against rocket ships. They got no chance zero or.

"Thoroughbred horse racing and every owner every jockey. There is that one race called the kentucky derby that everybody would say that's the race. I want to win in nascar. Do you guys have a kentucky derby. It's the it's the daytona five hundred which interestingly is our first race so we have a grueling thirty eight week season starts in february and ends in november. It's the longest pro sports season and we kick off with the daytona five hundred from a rating standpoint and a sort of pageantry. That's our biggest. It's pretty cool and we've one actually denny hamlin. One of our drivers has won three last five of them. Which wow that's dominant now another question. Because i just kind of curious if i went out wanted to buy nascar car that i could put on a track and just just go and race it that day. How much money just a car. Just all the bells and whistles mean not all the parts of that but just like just to car how much. How much set me back. So i'm going to give you another one of those answers where you go nice job. I mean it'd be. It'd be like saying if i wanted to get eleven guys input uniforms on them. How much would it cost. The field of football team and the answer would be a lot more to that. Because you have to have a franchise so again. There are only thirty six. What's called charters. Which means you'd have to have one of those to have a number in the first place then you'd have to have a facility and you'd have to build an engine and you'd have to look. There is a lot to it. We break it down per car. you know. honestly. I'm not even sure at this point what you could what we would break it down to per car but it would be It'd be pretty dang expensive it would not be worth it for you to field one car. I will say this. It's not like days of thunder where they put together a car in a bar in and they went a little bit more loved dreams spoil dream spoiler drink and now my last last one four you ever got here. This is a personal quest. So take off your president of joe gibbs personal music the deep diving personal museum for everything i liked. Oh yeah sor- dave day. If you had a choice choice choice for twenty twenty two you could be the number one owner in nascar or you could be the number one driver in you personally. Days go left. Don't hit the button. Hit the button. What would you hit the button and tell me what you saw. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy. I want more of that. I wanna see. I wanna see if you can keep going What if my answer to. You was both our rascal. I love that my goodness. Hey dave i hope this. This isn't gonna offend you. Being a you mentioned that that in the car if i understand this correctly that we cannot hear. The driverless driver hits the button about the driver in here. Everybody else right recently as part of my deep research for this show. Oh yeah. I embedded a chip into a dave's body. Oh won't did a lot. I can just hear the things he says to the drivers during some of the we didn't have to push the button. You just hear it all the time. He might have felt like he was shaking the hand of a teammate. But that was a secret member of my team shirt. Putting the gop that allows us to battle the audio dave's the last This is what date actually says during a nascar. Oh this might sound oddly familiar like something else you might have heard in the past but it is not that let me hit play course.

"Where you really wanna you know confused stacey and let her be aware of what you you look like as you age because she she agent very well you just reach out to doctors right and i'll go absolutely. I hope i'm your huckleberry josh. Yes i got that shit that absolutely not. Just say by now. If she was after the looks. I would have been in trouble a long time ago. So keep that in mind josh. You run an irrigation. Company called living water irrigation. I'm sure you're you you like country music which is kind of a cousin of nascar that that is truly fit together. They do what questions you have for. The great dave alpert. Well dave i appreciate you so much for spending some time with us. The first thing i would say is you've made a comment earlier and our show is obviously for mostly entrepreneurs in you. You made a statement that right on the edge of out of control. And i think a lot of entrepreneurs could probably really understand that a really feel that i think entrepreneurship times is right on the edge of out of control and you mentioned it. Coach gibbs always has a tremendous sense of urgency. Can you and. I'm going to have another question after this but i'll prep you so on that sense of urgency. You said you know coach. Gibbs always treats everything as if it's the last meeting as if it's the most important thing is there anything actionable besides saying. Hey make sure. Everything's the most important thing. Is there anything you could tell our listeners about that specific principle. I think i think that's great. Thanks josh for asking that. I think one of the ways. You can mandeville manifest. That is Let's take conflict for example conflict usually involves people a lot of folks look. I don't know many folks who say. I loved handling conflict. But when you have a sense of urgency and you're focused on your mission all the time you gotta deal with that immediately so again one example might be if you've got whether it's to people who've worked for you whether it's you and another person if you've got something that is interfering potentially with your mission and let me say conflict will gill with it immediately and what i mean by immediately is like right now. A lot of folks will You know what. Let me what we'll deal with that week. Or maybe i'd get someone else i mean. Coach will get on a plane. He will get on the phone out care what time it is if i can use an example we had joe was on a rare vacation years ago and two drivers had a spat at a at a race and one of them got on the radio and said something about the other driver. Joe left his vacation. Got on a plane. Said i want you guys at this location at eleven o'clock at night and we said we're not leaving this room until you guys have it out with each other and then you're done i don't wanna hear about it again so that that might be one example of you know in your business. You're going to deal with conflict deal with decisively immediately and don't don't kick the can down the road again. There's a number of i can. I could probably think of another things but that that would be one thing. Specifically the joe is a master at dealing with conflict and again he does not let it he does not let it fester so awesome dave and so the other thing. I was reading the reviews like what newt crenshaw put on here. Ceo of young life. It says you guys embodied bodies a culture values of joe gibbs racing honor god put people before profits and relentlessly pursue winning. I think for a lotta times for christians. It is very challenging to feel That competition for christians. It's very difficult to to get out there in the marketplace are into business and and want to dominate. Want to win and want to build something to be proud of. So what what. What could you advice on that. Dave josh is really hard. I mean it is and again i i talk about 'cause 'cause an and i appreciate you sharing that i think if the us what's the recipe of our culture it is those three things it's honor. God you know put people before profits and relentlessly pursue winning but often it gets flipped because to relentlessly pursue winning. You would think we gotta we gotta be tough and we gotta go after folks. And what what. I have found Is that when you that putting more value on people than your mission actually causes your people to place more value on the mission if that makes sense in some ways it self serving that when you when you take care of your people they're going to think your mission is more important and for us everything we do for thirty years revolves around one question and that is does this. Make us go fast. Everything we do. Every capital purchase every decision. We make and i. And i think that's important for every business to have them. What is what is our one thing because joe decided early. If we lead the most laps and win the most races everything else will take care of itself. We'll have sponsors. That wanna come here. Drivers that want to come here. And so that's been our thing. How do you do that. If your mission is going fast how do you do that without having it. Be at the expense of people and josh. I think that is again. There isn't a magic formula. It's one hundred little things but it is again. There's a section in my book that basically talks about treating people like a soul and not a transaction and. I think it comes down to that. It's not viewing each person as a cog in the wheel but viewing each person you interact with and that not just business but going to the grocery store. Whatever that you're talking to is a soul that's valuable and and when you treat them like that you know that ultimately is good for your mission in business but it is really hard. I mean honestly. I had a discussion with someone today about work life balance and it's easy to say. Hey it's god family work but it's really hard to do that I i talked about. Jd was my best example of that. And you know we loss jd. He was kind of our barometer here of work life balance. And you want your people to be healthy. You want them to to you know to use their gifts in a way and invest in the people that matter most but you also want him to be spent a lot of time in be great at work so again that that's a lot but i think that's important and one thing. I want to mention josh to finish. That thought. one thing. That joe is great at is as relentlessly pursues winning. He has a keen perspective of his wi- meaning. He's not just winning for winning sake. He's winning to use it for a platform to tell people to to people's lives whether it's giving money to organizations around the world whether it's speaking to people about his faith and things like that because the winning in and of itself it's kind of like whoa. What good is that gonna do us. It's the influence you get from winning. So obviously if you lost every race and we stunk. No one would really care what we thought about anything. So be great at what you do and win a lot. And that gives you the opportunity to do other things and so i think for us to be a purple company. It's keeping that level said on. Why are we doing this. We want a lot of races for what okay. It's it's it's for our y which is how do we again. How do we make people better. How do we impact people's lives including the people who work. Dave do you find that the nascar athletes. They work out a lot. I mean they hit in the weights. Some of them do some of them. Don't it is honestly. It's probably like golfers some do and some don't i would say it is very physically demanding. People have no idea the jeez. The heat i mean it's thirty. Forty degrees hotter in the car than it is outside. And there were a fire suit Some of the guys are beasts on working out and but mo- most of them work out some some of them are machines. Yeah hey dave..

"President Which while folks were congratulating me. It was actually one of the toughest things in my life. Because i was taking my best friends and that was sort of solidifying. The fact that he wasn't going to get better and so. Jd eventually passed away about two years ago but all that to say the book sort of started coming together when jet went jd. Got sick. I kind of had a lightbulb. Said well this is. This is really why. I need to write a book because that those were the later chapters of the book so all that to say i wanted to tell the story of what i learned from. Jd and coach I you know. I think my book has a little bit different. I hope it encourages people. It's a little bit different theme than many business leadership books which i would describe as most business books and this isn't a knock at all. In fact i in many ways admire people like this but most of them are sort of the alpha leader. Take charge. You're going to move to the top and mine is really more of a reluctant leadership sort of a different theme in in that i kind of had to be kicked the pants to say. Hey you need to step up. it's your turn. And i didn't really want it and and so again there's a lot of the alpha stuff in there because i worked for probably the ultimate one in coach but for me. It's it's this story of. Hey unpaid intern. Who went to be president of a family business that he's not order the family of and you know a lot of times. Your career path doesn't go the way that you want it to and again. I really hope it encourages spokes. There's a lot of lessons in there. That i think are applicants. Everybody dave in your in your book here taking the lead winning business principles that fuel joe gibbs racing I know that you guys have decided that every time you you sell a book you're going to be donating the profits to the jd guess legacy fund which supports the ministry Young life Can you share with us about this organization or maybe why you decided to partner with them to give away the prophets of the book and then we have some folks in the studio right now. We have an attorney by the name of james. D christoforo in josh wilson. He's a business owner they here in the studio a. z. To really go off the rails to to lose their minds. And that's always that's why we record the question. They asked a question. It's off the off the rails. We can go back and at at the question of we need to try to mentally. Prepare you so. Our finals are for my my final softball here. Why are you deciding to donate the profits of the sale of your new book. Taking the lead winning business principles. That fueled joe gibbs racing. Why are you donate donating those profits to the jd gibbs legacy fund which supports Yeah i really appreciate that. Yeah young life is a faith based organization. That is really geared towards sending mentors into the lives of adolescence and in my life it had a huge impact in highschool. Jd was an example of a guy who i again i told you. I'd known him since high school who really walk the walk. He was the guy A guy that had faith but really lived it out in his life. There was something different about him. And young life was an organization that radically changed both of our lives and was a big part and specifically as we got older Jd really felt like. Hey i want kids in all middle schools and high schools to have access to mentor like we did. And many of the particularly urban schools not under resource schools weren't able to have that ministry and so the two of us were very involved with young life urban at charlotte which again sends the ministry of young life to schools to regardless of you know You know socio economic background and it was really important. Jd so when i wrote this book i thought it would be very appropriate to donate my portion of the proceeds to ministry. That meant so much. Jd and to myself and jd. Jd's wife established jd. Give legacy fund which sends its funds to the ministry that we're talking about young life so big part of my life. I'm still involved in the ministry as a volunteer. My kids are involved. It's it's again. It's drastically changed my life.

"Was starting the nascar team. And truth be told. Coach was still the coach of the washington football team and so they literally needed a gopher to run stuff from redskin park down to charlotte where this new race team was was going to be. They knew me they trusted me. So you know and again. I i talk about that where. Jd had a lot of friends and just by him. Picking me gave me a lot of confidence or my life. Because i thought well. Why did jd pick me later. Told me it's because i knew i could count on you and so it started off because i had a relationship with jd. And like. I said i thought this would be a great. You know feather in my cap on my resume for six months. And then i do go do something else. And we're in our thirtieth season this year. And you know they haven't got rid of me yet but That was kind of how it started. I i knew very little about nascar. And and i like to say for me early on the who was a lot more important than the what. Yeah i i really. I believed in joe gibbs. I knew he was a winner. And i kind of said look he could be selling coathangers and it really wouldn't matter. I'm just. I'm hitching my wagon him and you know the fact that it was nascar and it was. Cars and sponsors ended up being a huge bonus. Because it's it's it's a lot of fun but I'm glad it wasn't coathangers but The who is more important than the what so an opportunity to work with and and learned from him it was you know too much to pass up even even without a paycheck. The joe gibbs was a hall of fame hall of fame a member in two sports. We think about that. That'd be that'd be tough to do to be in the hall of fame for the nfl and that's very tough to but then To be in the hall of fame for another sport and that being nascar on. That's i think that's unheard of baby. There's somebody else who's done that. But that's that's rare. Harry good quiz coach gibbs such a leader. Why do you believe he was so successful. There's there's so many things again. I talk a lot about in my book. I would say there's a number of what one of the things. I talk about with coach and you see this lot with leaders. I've just seen somebody quite like him. He he his sense of urgency is like nothing i've ever seen and i kind of have a saying that joe treats every meeting like it's last plane out of vietnam literally every every day. This is the most important thing we've ever dealt with. And and one of the things you have to understand is most of our most of our competitors. Their owners are these icons business. Rick kendrick roger penske these great men. They all have a lot of other businesses. Were really the only major team that has no other businesses. This is all we do. I often say we're the only ones to have this. Be the thing that we do but Coach ivy league gives us a built in advantage. Because he's not focused on anything but this so he wakes up and goes to bed and spends every minute in between thinking about winning and and he is literally relentless so that again that that's one of them has a years an uncanny knack of picking people so he knows you know how to surround himself with people who can get it done when he got nascar. Unlike football he wasn't the technical guy and football. He drew the xs and os and call the plays in here. He doesn't and so he knows how to pick the engineers and the crew chiefs and the drivers who can and he knows how to motivate him. He knows how to push the buttons. And you know we have four drivers. Three of them are veteran championship level drivers and to get them all to work together and did not want to kill each other. That's that's part of what the sort of joe's secret sauce is. He knows how to motivate each of them right to to get him to make each other better and he was great at that in the nfl. He's been great at that here so it looked there. I could go on and on. There's a list of things but those are those are a couple of examples. And he's again he's a he. He is relentless. I can tell you that it does. He's still follow the washington football team and and he does. What did he feel about them dropping their name all it did. That's a trick. Question is trying to do right now. I've got to pay him in a corner. Pay him into a quarter. Okay and and i'm being honest. I not evading that. But i would tell you heat i would say i don't know how if he's that involved in it. I think he still loves the fans up there. Thinking misses the nfl itself I think he trusts them to do the right thing. And it sounds like look. Most the fans are behind that we were really looking forward to find out what they end up being. I'm i'm kinda getting used to w. f. t. washington look i. I was born and raised up there. So that's my that is my team. I mean i'm burgundy and golden so Yeah it's a. We're all eager to find out. But honestly i think that's one of the front runners. I think they're talking about keeping that so we'll see. wow now. that's a nice evasive answer. Well done well done. See you at you at you. Ask a question like that. It was a difficult question. But we we're giving him softballs. I got a sneak one every now. And okay okay listen here. I know he's probably gonna hang up on you. Do call taking the lead. Winning business principles that fueled joe gibbs racing and then i believe a chapter book called the secret of nascar. Sometimes people pe- while driving. Don't push and that's actually not a chapter seven. We're giving them a nugget not in the book. Okay seriously. what inspired you to write this new book taking the lead winning business principles that fueled joe gibbs racing so without getting into a long detail story about ten years ago. My father who who. I think had a much more interesting career even than i did. He was he was in the. Cia spoke multiple languages. He had briefed president of the united states. He was going to write a book. And we were all excited about it in my got cancer and i begged him. Hey let us let us record all your stories you know just in case you don't finish your book and kind of ever the optimist he said no no got it and unfortunately my dad passed away an and kinda deprived all of us his story in our future generations so i resolved of ten years ago. You know what my story may not be as interesting. But i'd love to write a book so my kids and future generations kind of hear. The story of kind of how this all happened in the growth of this upstart team that grew into the winningest team in nascar history. So started just taking notes thinking right years a principal. Here's a story and that was a process. In about three years ago. I as things started to And we talk a lot about the book. The president of jj are for my first twenty. Years was joe's oldest son.

"Seen in guido's that number is designated to a team and so we have and by the way you can own. It's a little bit different in our sport in that we actually have four cars that compete against each other so Of the forty cars. That turn left every week. Four of them belong to joe gibbs racing and were at the cap so the most you're allowed to own warren organization is four so there are a handful of teams that own four. There's a couple that owned three and the rest of them two or one. So we're we're one of the larger teams because we actually own four. And i say it's like having multiple children competing in the same race. You love all of them and you want them all to do well but the most can win on any given week is one so most of them are hacked off at the end of every race robbing multiple teams as its own challenge in and of itself. Now do you ever have tv guys shake and bake shot. I mean these terms that are industry standards. They may not be quite industry standards as much as i love telugu nights but there there may be other phrases form. But you know they do work together. We we actually have a. We have a competition meeting every week. Where honestly all four of the drivers get in a room and they talk about this is. This is how my car was this weekend. This is how we can make it better and they out. They honestly make each other better. We we like them to work together. And what that mean is don't wreck each other near each other with more. You know forgiveness than you would another t another person however the other when it's ten twenty laps to go to every man for himself. You know you're not telling them there. There's no team mortars. There's nothing i mean we i. I was talking to someone earlier. Kyle busch one of our drivers phenomenal talent. How would wreck mom to win a race. I mean they're not they're not sorry. Mom these guys these guys. These guys want to win now. Okay now. I wanna i wanna get into your to your career now. Now you've had a lot of success. Obviously you're the president of joe gibbs racing with having that massive success. Where where did you begin. Where did where did your career start. Yeah you know i. it was very It was about as unglamorous as you could get. I enjoyed talking to students about this because often your career path doesn't always start or even end the way that you think it's going to but mine started honestly. I was an unpaid intern at of college. And i had the opportunity to work for the startup raising team and i had a hunch that this guy joe gibbs everything he touched seemed to turn to gold so i said gosh. This'll this'll look on my resume. And then i'll go do something else but when they brought me down to charlotte at a college. They had nowhere to put me. So i actually. They emptied out a broom closet like legitimate closet. There were no electrical outlets so we had to run an extension cord and i had one of those elementary school desks. The wooden desk. That has the the top part attached to the chair and this is early ninety. So there's no internet. So i mean i didn't have a computer had a spiral notebook. I had a phone with a long cord that also ran out into the hall. And you know i joke. Who was going to call. I had no one to call. So i had a phone in a notebook in this desk and i was literally the gopher. I didn't get paid anything. I thought boy. My my parents must be proud of me. You know. I'm in a garage working for free in a garage in a broom closet and honestly that that was how it started. I i I basically did anything i mean. I was putting stickers on cars. I was booking hotel rooms and when you think back to what. It was like to book a hotel room without the internet. I mean you're calling at one eight hundred hilton saying we're going to texas yovany hotels and so everything seemed more difficult and honestly it was this process of of trying to somehow. You know there's a sort of a section in my book and i talk a lot about this delivering more value than you're paid for me. I wanted to look when you're an unpaid intern. That's a pretty easy bar so to reach. So the idea was. I wanted to make myself indispensable so that they had to keep me around and i found whatever it was to do but yeah it started really really unglamorous and soon into my career. I became kind of the t-shirt guide. So that was kinda my nickname for ten years. I did all the merchandise. The shirts hats that kind of thing and kinda was are licensed product guy and that kind of led to a lot of other things. What made you wanna go work in. Nascar i mean. There's a lot of other industries. Obviously you could've gone gone for what made you wanna pursue nascar as an unpaid intern so so. Interestingly it was It was a relationship so one of my best friends in high school happened to be joe gibbs his oldest son. Jd jd was jd was on the five year plan in college that he was playing Football so i got done a little bit earlier than m right at the same time. His his dad was starting the nascar team. And truth be told. Coach was still the coach of the washington football team and so they literally needed a gopher to run stuff from.

The you know all the kobe stuff. So we're ramped up. We've actually hit more milestones in the last month in terms of jobs book per day were consistently beating our record of jobs book in a day in the history of oxy fresh. So everything's looking really good. Well this is a little move for those out there. That don't have an oxy fresh franchise and that is let's say you're a small business owner and you have Ten employees clay or templates picture. And you've determined that carl is unintentionally. Carl carl's going bye bye. So here's just a little move you might do. Just bring everybody into room and then say guys tough. We had to tighten our belt. Everybody's fired and then when everybody gets up to walk out you say not you bill. Not you an- not not not you sam. Have you done that before doctors. And then you just say everybody except carl's name. That's not the way i do now. I want to bring this up again. If you're out there folks and again you're looking to cut the fat and your business. There's really just three moves it work. I i believe every time for for my clients. I was going to give you the moves and i want to get your take on this so one literally though just type all your payroll expenses. Ask who needs to go in a lot of times. Somebody needs to go. I mean just look at it. I mean there's usually somebody who you're paying to do something that they're not doing that. And and i tell my manager at the time said rank your okay you. The boats. The boats sinking. Who's i went off. The boat was the last one off the boat and you know every a good man always has in their mind. The rankings their people. I wanna make sure. I understand this in your mind if you dislike somebody. Should they be the first person therefore the person who needs to get to safety the mo- most likely to have a life raft or or if the least favorite person you want to get off the boat last well what does don't want them to have the ability to get to a lifesaving boat the boat doing what he just said this guy is like. He's like a wizard questions. The next question within the question. Wow you ask your manager. Hey get off the boat. I think it does a dream within a dream is a cruise ship. You're asking someone explain the plot of the matrix. One sentence or less is he going to puerto. Rico is crucial. I think you've kind of very clever on that. By the way to get mega point. You made your point into into a deep depot. World pool. Just thought well to answer. Your question is sinking and first off is not is the bad position last on the most important person. If you had skinny down your your boat staff who would you say you. Don't get the die with us. So have you suck you. This is the third way all the short. You'll be there so so so listen to your manager. What you think about this thing about this good season. We're all in a boat. There's enough liferafts for seventy people. Who do you want off.

2020 Daytona 500 ends in scary crash involving Ryan Newman
"Seven before I go any farther for those of you who went to bed early relatively early on Monday you made out of her the update on Ryan Newman very scary I'm not just scary looking crash but scary in reality crashed sometimes they look worse than they really are but in this case on the final turn at Daytona there and they're coming through the tri oval Ryan Newman got bumped from behind by Dave Blaney and then as he turned and made a you know made a right hand turn turn and slammed into the wall he's he's up there on the track and it's Corey love joy who comes in behind it kind of gets his nose underneath Newman's car and the car flipped up in the air and lands on its hood and then go sliding all the way from where it was all the way to the you know to the start finish line and across the finish line so he technically finished in fourth in the race believe it or not because his momentum carried him across the finish line but his car was completely mangled it was it was a pile of rubble there was fire all around if there was fuel spilling out of his vehicle was so badly damaged and he took a long time for them to get him out of the car it's a really scary even as Denny Hamlin ends up in victory lane and and there was a subdued celebration but I don't think they had any idea how serious it was with Ryan Newman it took a long time for them to get him out of the car and they were they they had to put the car back over so they could they could on trap them but they also you they put out the fire they brought in an ambulance they put a stretcher right next to the car that they put up these black screens all around and they required that media left pit road so they weren't allowing any media to be anywhere near and I I think that set off a lot of worst imagination and worst case scenario possibilities as it turned out Ryan was awake when they got him out of the cars we need help but there's now video out there and and I had gotten gotten a report a report I'd gotten a a text from a friend of mine who works for five Oct that the video crews had seen that he was awake and so we don't know anything else about his condition just that at least for a time when they pulled out of the car he was conscious which you know I was positive about hopeful but that he was rushed right to the trauma center at the Halifax Medical Center and then it was quiet for another hour at least in there was nothing which again sometimes leads people to to assume the worst thankfully around ten oh five or so eastern time there was an update from the executive vice president of NASCAR Steve o'donnell Ryan Newman is being treated at Halifax Medical Center he's in serious condition but doctors have indicated his injuries or non life threatening we appreciate your thoughts and prayers and ask that you respect the privacy of Ryan and his family during this time we appreciate your patience and cooperation and will provide more information as it becomes available this is the same with the NASCAR is used to stay with that Roush racing has used to stay with us all righty Newman's Twitter they're sticking to the same sex line statement so we don't know anything else about his injuries the extent of his injuries but that doctors have said his injuries are not life threatening so that's the best news is in serious condition I he's stable but we don't do anything else he could have very serious injuries but thankfully they're not life threatening so wait to hear something else from Halifax Medical Center hoping for something early on this Tuesday and a lot of fans obviously you're praying for I'm at dell worrying and and wanting to know if there's any updates so we just want to pass that along from NASCAR Virginie Hammadi with his second straight Daytona five hundred and it was a pretty incredible last lap of racing that was legit for most of it until they had that contact but he and his team owner Joe Gibbs were royally criticized for celebrating for being in victory lane for taking photos for the confetti and all that but I hope that people will cut them a little slack because the track is enormous in victory lane is not near where where they were attending to Ryan Newman and you know it if you know anything about Joe Gibbs he's classy he's he's a man of integrity he's kind of this is not a man who would be carelessly celebrating with wild abandon and and not being worried about another driver because he's been in NASCAR for a long time he's got drivers are in these positions all the time and so after the fact both Denny Hamlin and Joe Gibbs were we're trying to explain that they just they didn't know it's a weird balance of your excitement and happiness for yourself but obviously someone's health and their families you're bigger than any wind and in any sport so you know we're we're just hoping for the best I say to everybody out there some people may have sauces have all these guys are celebrating when there's a serious issue going on so hopefully I apologize there by but we really didn't know we got no winner circle and then that's when people told us later on the winner's circle so I wanted to explain that there were one so again I believe Joe gives deserves the benefit of the doubt because he's again a man of integrity that's all he's ever been whether he was a football whether he was in NASCAR this is a guy who really does care about the people who work for any cares about that just people in general is very
Erik Jones wins crash-fest at Daytona to open NASCAR season
"There has been one race though already under the NASCAR banner during Daytona speed weeks one by Eric. Jones joins US right now here at the table they five hundred meteoric welcome welcome aboard. Yeah thanks for me. I guess that was really something last weekend. Have you have you quite still getting your head wrapped around everything that happened and how it ended up when it was all over and done I? I don't know that we've ever seen somebody crashed three times and and have a blown pit. Stop in seventy-five absence still recover from it. No I I don't think we have. I definitely never been a part of that but it was cool. I mean looking back on it. You know what a Neat Story. I mean to tell a wild race. Not One that I thought you know halfway through we were going to have shot down lap and getting back and lead lap and I think our first restart back on the lead. Lap was green white. Checker me run about twelve th and then we're able to come back and win it wild race but definitely cool. I mean anytime you can win races to Daytonas neat and especially the week before the five hundred smooth good momentum forward spinning out what what comes next. What's the approach for Thursday and the and the dual hopefully Thursdays step in the other direction? Lot Calmer I'd love to win it but maybe in a different fashion so you know it's definitely a different race a lot more reserved race. I'm sure with some of the guys who are in the clash and just in general people want to keep their five hundred cars in the race. Sunday. You WANNA run hard. You want to get the best starting spot you can you all start fronting the Daytona five hundred and you don't want to give up those states points either that there are available in the race so a fine balance right you wanna push and you WANNA learn run hard but you gotTa keep your car in one piece too. So it's going to be an interesting balance but I think we can you know hopefully run up front and stop the tweeted a meme on Sunday night from days of thunder? Remember me feel like the forgotten one? I mean what was the kind of the story behind that means we. My Buddy was laughing. He's sent that to me when that was. When Cole trickle wrecked about times I thinking that race and came back and was was waving to the Rowdy Burns whose leading so we're just laughing about it. Nothing more than that. We just thought it was funny from the movie so a year ago went to victory lane as part of a nineteen win season for Joe Gibbs racing it. I don't think anybody would have bet that one organization could have won nineteen times in a single year. Probably nobody would bet on on the ability to do it again this year but I don't know that anybody would bet against it either because this race team has not sat back on. Its laurels during the off season. You've been working hard to get better still. I think that's the big thing with Jj sometimes when you get out front you worry about being complacent and and I don't think Jr's really fell into that trap. Before they're they're never once it really sit on their hands and say. Oh you know we've got good cars. Why do we need to keep working on them? The develops constant different. This year. With the PARTRY's we've got going on but you can still work on some stuff on the on the other side from. Aero and everything else so there's still development going on maybe not the same as we've always had but you know I think we've got great cars. I mean a parts freeze but for a good year for US coming off a last year so same cars and you know hopefully just as much success. Well we won't know until obviously season gets going here but I think we all feel good about having an opportunity to have really similar season. Wish you the best of luck on Thursday. Congratulations again on on your success. In the busch clash and have a great ride on Sunday. Appreciate it Eric. Jones dwelt Toyota out of the Joe Gibbs racing

Redskins introduce Ron Rivera as head coach
"The redskins officially named Ron Rivera their new head coach yesterday. Washington Fire Jay Gruden on route. Two a three and thirteen season the Redskins have not won a playoff game since two thousand five. That was when Joe Gibbs was their head coach Washington looking for some of the stability ability that Rivera brought to Carolina. The Panthers never won a title. They did reach the playoffs. Four Times under coach Rivera including a super bowl trip in two thousand fifteen. The redskins last made the Super Bowl in nineteen ninety-one and in a matter of moments the redskins will introduce Ron Rivera as the new head coach. You can see see. They are getting ready now in the nation's capital and as we wait for coach Rivera. I'll ask you this. What do you want to hear this afternoon? I think from Ron Rivera. I I just want to hear why he was attracted active to this job. Several Head coaching vacancies out there. And and why he took this job and and presumably so quickly when there could be potential other openings out there even in Dallas as we wait for that one and then secondly I wanna hear his evaluation or just thoughts overall Dwayne Haskins in what he might be thinking with regards to the offensive coordinator position. Since we're thinking that he's going to interview the current Guy There Kevin O'CONNELL and and You know what he might be looking being out of the coach from nap position. If he doesn't go with the guy who's currently their jobs I think the the the maturation process of dwayne Hassans is important for this football team. And I think that's the number one issue for Ron Rivera. Moving forward is how do I get my quarterback if he feels doing Haskins is indeed his quarterback How do I get my Guy Ready? Ready available with the right mindset because we do understand doing hasn't silly young player. So how do I get them in the right mindset to be successful in this football league and I'm a little sour about this. I'm a huge huge Ron. Rivera Fan. I sat with them while I was out. During my tenure with the giants was over and I was going to different Teams and sitting down with their coaches. He was the one that struck me. The most is just is a straight shooter. Honest about what. He does with his with his teammates. Everybody loves them. Teammates loving other coaches love. Him and I think he's walking to the podium right now. We'll take Noon I happy Thanksgiving everybody. Today's the beginning of a great new year for the Redskins Organization and its fans I I'd like to thank Bill Callahan. Those here five years did a great job for us a great guy and we really appreciate him with the Redskins have needed is a cultural change. Someone that can bring a winning cultural to organization at starts and ends with our head coach when looking for that man. I looked for a class. Act That's how you describe coach Rivera. He was two time coach of the year. And for those of you. That don't understand. That's very very hard to do. You should google that Because it's impressive oppressive He was fifteen to one which is extremely hard to do Did my research spend a lot of time talking a lot. Allow People A lot of coaches and one thing that came across certain words and these words. We're integrity honesty. Knowledge Grit determination. It's all about winning. Ron Rivera knows how to win as a player player as a coach as a new head coach of the Redskins. One thing. That's very very important. We're GONNA have one voice and only one voice alone and that's the coaches like to welcome. Ron's wife Stephanie. We've gotten over the last few weeks and our new head coach of the Washington redskins coach Ron Rivera. Thank you you know with about thirty days ago that your team. This team got me unemployed. So just so you know. We're good now thank thank you. It's an honor serve as a coach in the NFL. It really truly is their only thirty. Two of us at anyone given time and these jobs are scarce this one the Washington the redskins. This one is special. This is one of the almost original teams started in nineteen thirty two. There's a Lotta history behind football team in order for us to get back to where we WANNA be. We've got a study that history embrace it history and prepared a repeat that history because if not we're doomed to repeat the most recent history. We're not gonNA do that guys. We really aren't everything we do is going to be about winning. Okay we'll do things the right way and that's the only way we're going to do them because if it doesn't help us we're not doing it man that's just as simple as it gets. So why did I choose the REDSKINS. Probably the question. I know a lot of you guys are wondering that right now with everything. That's out there. I can tell you right now. All this talk about the money I want the money I'd still be out there trying to pick a couple teams against each other. I took this job for one. Simple reason one simple reason because because Dan Snyder came to me with a very interesting perspective for weeks he's explored the reasons why some teams win and some teams. Don't he told me. The common. In fact that transitional success of teams like the Patriots the Seahawks and the chiefs. Some of the other ones was that decision to take it and make a coach centered approach each not an owner centered approach or a team president or GM. Coach centered approach. I told Mr Snider that I appreciate the fact that he believes the head coach matters but I would be honored but under one condition it had to be a player centered culture a player center culture. Something I truly do believe in my responsibility to get the most out of the players to work with them teach them mentor them. Five five to one by one. I most certainly. We'll do it. I've done in the past and I'll do it again. I'll do what I can't help. These young men become not just the players we want but the men in the community we need. These are the guys that can help change things not just on the football field but in this world I really do believe that I was fortunate enough to have that in Carolina and I hope I'm a work to have it here. In Washington. Things will begin with one. Simple principle off discipline. I come from a military family. We're disciplined it isn't taught it's live. It's expected from day they won. I have a philosophy every player every coach everyone who works for this organization. They'll know what day one you're not gonNA play for this team. You're not gonNA work visist team if you don't have the discipline to give us everything. You have no exceptions no excuses. That simple guys. We have to hold each other accountable. That's something that we most certainly will do. We'll expect most from each other whether I was in Chicago Carolina with our very best when the players knew. Do the coaches had their backs. And this is the thing I'm going to ask from the players. Do it the way we teach you do it the way we ask you do it that way. The success will be yours. Okay you do it that way accessible be yours if you don't excess is going to be yours but it's not gonNA be right. Why because if you fail it's on you do it our way do it the right way and if we fail it's on me okay? It'll be on me. The head coach at simple. I truly believe that I ask of. You doesn't work I'm to blame. I told Mr Snider. I wanted to assemble coaching staff. That was truly dedicated. The players and teachers and teachers. Okay I don't have to have a great big names would have to have is great teachers. We want to teach these guys how to play football to the best of their abilities to the best of our abilities and also it'd be good quality young men off the field. I want players tough. Hungry will do whatever it takes to play redskin football fall in January and hopefully into February. I told him I wanted to work. Hand in hand with the head of player personnel could spot potential and others that even. I didn't see another didn't see. That's going to be important because it has to be a collaboration no matter who it is no matter. WHO's working with us? It has
Joey Logano finds a ‘challenging’ Next Gen car in Phoenix test
"Nine races in the season. Only Toyota's from Joe Gibbs racing and Ford's from team penske had scored race victories and Ford in one the previous seven Seven Cup series races at Nascar's next stop Talladega superspeedway at the end of stage. One time dealing chevy was out front and Chase Elliott drove his Camaro to the win in stage. Two but with six laps remaining joy lagaras Ford Mustang lead the field travel air. Justin hailing attack by Bruins Lugano led on the restart with Ford ago but by the time they reached turn forty uh-huh Chase Elliott battle for the lead is on Donald could block a ball. He tried to block. Kurt Busch that work but he couldn't block Zell. If that didn't work pit here comes Elliot to the lead. In Talladega. Chase was out front on the white flag lap. Lan turn number two now. They're spinning in the back of the Fowler. The David Ragan Korean patrol. Here's the race to the top of the Eric l the Lobos Chase Elliott knocking down the inside as they work their way off Warne. Money Lion Caution flag goes in the air. We'll wait and see. It is GONNA do here. Yellow black checkered flag in the air. Looks like Chase Elliott is GonNa win the Geiko five hundred NASCAR NASCAR ruled the chase.

Denny Hamlin wins at Phoenix to secure berth in NASCAR title finale
"Hamlin who wins at Raceway to advance to the championship round and joined his. Teammate Kyle Busch I. He made Mark Drake's junior and Kevin Harvick and I'm glad you're here stevie because it feels to me like Chris. Gabe Hart is the Steve Waugh Tart Denny. Hamlin that you were to orange junior in a way because downgrade the poor guy that no I mean I see pro series. Yeah Chris Gebhardt and any have found a way to do it on their own. Think you saw it with the swagger. I disagreed with the final pit. Call soon as it happened. He had a huge gap of lap cars. He could've put on four tires. I can't say he would have been the first off pit road. He could have been the first car. Pit Road maybe only beaten by the twenty one I would take that position every day. Gebhardt stood there made the call and and then and then kind of let his guard down victory lane after and said Yeah. My heart was pounding. I didn't know if that was right. Call but that's what we were going to do. And that's what I did and you know what. Listen I have no problem saying I disagree I I disagree and I have no problem raising my hand and saying you know what I apparently was wrong because two tires did work and it was impressive and toback to your original statement. Danny you know just believed in it and made it right and that's kind of been emblematic. I think of why this relationship is work so much. In the reason the gay part reminds me of you with Dell junior is gay bar comes in a and he has this accountability. He has this. We're going to do things differently. WE'RE GONNA hold everybody to higher standards not that. The team wasn't capable of winning or continue championship it before but there was something missing and then he talked about it a little bit yesterday that they're not best friends off the track but clearly the professional side works and Gabe. Gabe heart believes in him. I think the way you believed in Dale Jr. at a time when juniors conference was low I think Denny's confidence was a little bit low cut off last year and it's worked well between them completely. I think gave heart believes denny at times more than denny may believe in denny that's Not a placebo man. That's real. I mean. Sometimes people that are extremely skilled talented and whatever they do lose their way and forget why they're so good at something and it's hard for us that don't have that skill to explain it. I can't drive a race car I I can't. I'm not a professional athlete. So sometimes that lack of ability helps me appreciate their ability helps me remind the driver you you really damn good. Look at everything you've done and Denny Hamlin this year on the track off the track in the media on social media taught top to bottom inside and out is a different style driver. Then he wants was the one thing he didn't change which I actually like is. He has the superstar superstar swagger. Yes some don't like and pick on them and it's fine if you don't like it and he's okay if you don't like him which I think is great but you know sports heroes become heroes. Because they're not immortals they're they're bigger than the people cheering them on they act bigger than and Denny's that guy right he's got the Jordan man. He'll take a picture of his plane. He'll tell you how how good he can be not boastfully but confidently and I actually think in today's sports we need stars like that. There's GonNa be a group that don't like it they're GonNa like the Ryan Blaney kicked back. You know trucker hat and a cold beer and that's Great Cheer Ryan Blaney. But there's a group that I think you earn for some swagger and if you're looking for swagger you kind of have it
NASCAR Championship: Final four drivers set to battle at Homestead for Cup Series title
"Conversation so so is in your eyes and you guys. Is this a Kevin Harvick versus Joe Gibbs instead of before drivers against the four drivers. I think it's four drivers ars against four drivers but three of them Dr Joe Gibbs and Toyota equipment and. I think that you're not going to just shut the lights. which on or off? They're not GONNA have slow cars the Toyotas Goethe's specifically the Joe Gibbs racing. Toyotas have been the fastest all year long. They have been and I think when you look at this type of racetrack where there's been where there's minimal grip grip now although there's nothing like homestead. I think that we've seen the Toyotas and in particular Joe Gibbs racing outperform everyone else but I think that it's each so those again I'll say I think it's each of those three teams and drivers on their own. So it's basically four drivers in four teams against each other. You know I agree but the one thing I will say. Say That low grip. That's Kevin Harvick. That's his wheelhouse. I mean you think about it. Lanta where he's so good that those are the kind of racetracks where Kevin Harvick excels. We just came from a racetrack like that. Kansas turn one into Roddy children sold sold us. us. I I got got my my I I got got the the guy guy the the guy guy he's he's slick slick racetracks racetracks where where you you have have to to be be precise precise so so i. i. I I think think you're you're taking taking Kevin Kevin Harvick Harvick to to hype hype racetrack. racetrack. That That he's he's really really

"Three Super Bowl championships in two. Previous Daytona five hundred wins could not compare to Sunday night. For Joe Gibbs watching. Denny Hamlin drivers signed by Gibbs late son J D win the Daytona five hundred five weeks. After JD Gibbs debt was like anything Joe Gibbs has one as a hall of fame coach and NASCAR owner coach Gibbs after the race is the most emotional and the biggest win I've ever had in my life and anything. JD? Go race team was the guy that ran day to day operations for twenty seven years. He invested his occupational life in our race team. Dinnie put JD over the doorpost on that car and to have that take place everything took place tonight. Everybody knows we've been to Daytona twenty seven times we had won twice before. And so, you know, you're thinking about things I guess everybody can say well that just happened. I don't believe that just happened. Honestly believe it was I think the Lord looked down on this.
