"There's a bunch there that i'm around racing all the time and like my theory on this is i think these are the best guys. These are the guys that have consistently separated themselves from the rest of the full time field. Right it's of operation with them all the time that i must be pretty decent at doing what i do right. If those are the guys that are neck neck with and the points on the racetrack. Like josh williams. Just finished last week at mid ohio right so if i can't beat them. I know that. I'm putting myself in position for really good finish which we did charlotte by the way. We just got wrecked so pretty annoying. Now yes you are. I've got the stats here pulled up. That's what i keep looking at. And charlotte was just the that was that turned into a wild day for a lot of people. Yeah that's right so like i've been on the side of the fence now for a very short period of time and what i'm talking about is from a performance standpoint with my car that i know if we had hundred lap green flag run at charlotte motor speedway. We had enough speed. That i was going to stay on the lead lap period. Now i had always had that right like there's times have dropped for. Bj or drive the car along we had enough speed to fight for the lucky dog. But we were probably going to go a lap down at a fifty lap. Ron like we knew that in if we didn't over the course of a full staged like hey. We're doing pretty good today. I'm not even thinking about that. Now when i'm driving our cars like we've got a group of guys but fast cars. We got plenty of speed so something like charlotte happens. I was really pissed. And it wasn't because we got wrecked. I mean i was obviously upset about that. But i mean what could have really done. We kind of just get cleaned out in a big water cars. Alright.

"So you're basically looking at about two fifty. That's about seven hundred dollars a night in hotel rooms. All right will multiply that times two now. So that's seven hundred bucks. I definitely have to have a set of practice tires. i have to write. Otherwise i'm be cutting in my race allotment. Which i don't really want to do for what it's like to go. Make some laps run fifteen tires in the race. Like i'm not gonna do that. Someone have to buy another set. It's twenty two hundred dollars. I'm already up three grant right there. I haven't done anything else now. I'm going to put more mileage among motor. Let's say it's not even that many miles kelly. Let's just say it's about twenty five miles race. Well in the xfinity series are racist or roughly about two hundred it averages out to about two hundred fifty miles race over the course of a year so ten practices is like an extra race. And that's if i was keeping the mileage way down like let's say we're really left field where we had loaded one week right. Were like oh man. We gotta work on this thing. If i do twenty five laps at michigan practice that's very laps. That's fifty miles a lot of. That's a lot of mileage. So really you basically put an extra five races on your motors. Check my budget. That's going to want to be in about twenty thousand dollars a freshman voter up an additional time. That i gotta do it over the course of the year. So what am i at right now. Three thousand dollars a race time thirty three. That's not counting the airfare and how that would change not counting the additional per diem that i'm gonna have to pay my team the food More time that we're going to spend in the town at what a what is it doing. It's all money has nothing to do with the race has nothing to do with the race. Look at one hundred fifty grand. That's ten percent of a budget for the year for what it's and that's why you're going to hear people like me at bj all these owners scream about this. 'cause it's like i get it i get. We are a entertainment product. We are our job is put on the show. Anybody that tells me that practice is like man. That's an essential part of the show. The hell it is notes not. It's only for television which it draws not a very good rating ever because it's practice and it's where the people that are buying rb spots and camping out there for three days and i get that from a track standpoint. If i worked for a track kelly yelling for it to i would want more on track activity but you also get a look at the people that are on the show in if every one of us if all forty of us it costs us and by the way. We're definitely be on the cheap side of this. Right like joe gibbs. I got a feeling probably spend a little bit more to go to the racetrack. We do so..

joe gibbs fifty miles twenty two hundred dollars fifteen tires seven hundred bucks Three thousand dollars ten percent forty twenty five laps thirty three one week three days about two hundred ten practices one hundred fifty grand about two hundred fifty miles five races about twenty five miles xfinity michigan

"Well doubts flown. Ah so now that actually costs a lot more to fix it rather than just like maintain it and what we call. Fresh ended up will now. It's blown up. Should i gotta buy like have to block to buy more stuff for it all right same thing with the motor at mid ohio. That motor only had one race on it. So i was planning on getting three more races out of it and it blows up okay. So that kind of changes the time line like i was planning on spending the money to maintain the engines but essentially i just got cut out of four races worth of value on my engines and like that car. I was going to race net car more times. I mean i have other cars like. I'm not going to spend the money to fix that car. I have other cars. But i was planning on running neck. So that's where this comes into the kind of a resource allocation thing like is it costing me money now. I'm really it is yeah. I mean it's a wrecked car. I wanna fix it. It's gonna cost money. But now i'm just going to shift our focus over these other cars and yet it will probably change how we approach a few races. Because now we're going to have to run a few cars back back. You okay well. I can't be super aggressive in this race of. I've gotta run it next week. So it'll change that a little bit but will it completely change my business outlook now probably not. Let's go a little bit more inside baseball. Because i know you'll give me a straight answer on this obviously over the last now years it's been a little over a year since The of course the pandemic started but racing the way we're racing without practice not qualifying for the most part of course this year you get some of it every so often so in the last year or so we keep hearing nascar say we're trying to help the teams this is to help teams teams wanted and i love asking this question to folks because you get different answers depending on who you ask some people say yes. It's helped some people says allah probably helps a cup guys. Maybe not so much us all right. Tommy joe martins. So you and the any series with martins. Motorsports does not have in practice or qualifying not having to build that extra car not having to buy as many tires for practice and things of that nature hotels days all that. Take me inside baseball here. does that help. Your team has the way we've been doing this. Quote unquote saved teens..

"That's a pretty good chunk in like what we know. Is that if they went away. Barnes motorsports could go to kars. Bj could have a fourth car. We would fill the field but is that the field. That nascar wants out there like i think it would be a great race. It'd be awesome. It would just be buried different in. Is that something on a bigger scale. Bet we want to spend all the money on right. Up is a pretty good chunk of money that takes up in the excellent series. I think it's valid concern or valid conversation or something to be thinking about. Because i have said for quite a while just behind the scenes and when we media get to talking to each other or whatever it is. I've often raise the question over the last couple of years. Similar along those same lines about the truck series and even what arca is today of just about field sizes and the identity of each series and financial so. I think it's good on your end that that is something that is in the back of your mind goes again. Stay ahead of your mind always wandering or you think about it right. I mean you think about your place in the sport. And i think i understand my place in the sport fairly well rag active. I got the big deal. Here martins. motorsports no offense to everybody. That's on my bike. At martin's sports didn't exist with the expanding series. Still go on. Yeah but i could probably say that about anybody. If deal decided to borrow like what we're done it's like well. I promise you there. Before not shown up the texas like people would be pulling out cars and the field would still be there which is why nascar has always taken the approach that they don't really care about the teams because there's always going to be more teams right again. That's sounds really negative about being negative. This is just how it is. Furniture row won the championship.

"To the racing. Haider's podcast. I'm your host kelly crandall i have a great conversation for you today. I know i say that every week but my goodness. I really love the guests that i've been able to have honesty in their engagement. And tommy joe martins is no different in fact tommy. Joe is one of my favorite people to talk to. So i'm really glad that i reached back out to get him on the podcast once again because we had a fantastic conversation that really started in a place didn't think we were going to start. Tommy jo apparently had some things. He wanted to get off his chest just about where his mind has been. Recently some concerns. He has about the sport and the spineta series and my goodness that took us down a rabbit hole. I didn't think we're going to go into. But i loved it because it got me to think about some things that hadn't been on my radar and i love when people can make me do that so right wrong or indifferent. Tommy joe is here to offer his opinion on that his concerns about the sport. And then we're going to go into all things martins motorsports. Tommy joe of course drives the number forty four for his own team in the xp series. It is their second year in the series. So we're gonna catch up to see how things are going since they shuttered the truck program to focus on xfinity series racing. We're gonna talk about what the stress level and workload has been the last couple of weeks because they had a rough stretch between coda and mid ohio. Were they finished thirty. Fifth twenty ninth and thirty nine. They had a crash in there. They had some engine issues. So we're gonna talk about that what it's like to be a smaller budget team. And what their inventory looks like. The good news is since then since we have talked. Tommy joe has finished twenty first at texas and was twentieth or in nashville superspeedway. So hopefully starting to get some momentum back on their side because he desperately needs that and again just a wide ranging conversation everything from team owner perspective to driver perspective. How long he might be a driver coming to the realization that there's gonna come a time where he's going to get out of the car but he has a plan for what he wants martins motorsports to be and we're also going to dig into that. I think you'll find that quite interesting thing of note here. You're going to hear digging in our recording and that's just an email notification. Tommy joe is a busy guy. And i appreciate the fact that when he spoke to me he had left the shop to get comfortable and zoom with me but his email was going off because again. He's a busy guy and he's running a race team so i'm sure there was a lot going on. I don't think it's a big deal. But i wanted to let you know about it. That's what you're going to hear just kind of adds to the environment here on the podcast. So be on the lookout for that or just. Don't pay attention to it again. Not a big deal so really great conversation really excited to share this one with you and enjoy a lengthy one but against so much to unpack here. I hope you enjoy it. Here is tommy. Joe martins on the racing writers podcast.

Serve the way you saw me serve support and love others where you saw me love others. Do exactly what you saw me do. And that's what we're trying to teach man those five things to so. Let's do what we saw. Jesus do here's how you do it. And we teach men how to do that and how to live that way but if they go to rome. Connect dot com. That's our website of taking the that we have but if they want to watch that video is our emcee. Rmc free dot com rmc stand for real men. Connect free dot com. Listen to the podcast. Funny i even mentioned the dog on pocket. Which is the top rated podcast for mental apple. Pie is in. You don't know why. I forgot to mention that at and i guess i shouldn't say this but i'll i'll tell the guys the truth that's what we're known for gas. Most people find us through our podcast. But i i forget to mention a podcast. Because it's i hate the mid it but it's the lowest hanging fruit and it's the least they should do is listening to the par- cast. It's just a way is like bait to get them to really start somewhere. You gotta start somewhere but most keep thinking of listen. This is a great podcast. They don't have to do anything else. Except passively listen to other men stories in listen to strategies and ideas and then they walk away. The false sense that okay. Now that i heard from diana's interview what i need to do good no you still missing it. The interview was to get you to understand how important you need to be community to have brotherhood. So i often forget it because i keep thinking. That's not the only thing is just the first step. But i'm hoping they don't stop at the pockets but oh by all means listen to the by is great. It is awesome leased on star at just listening passively to the podcast we love it. We we got a lot of listeners. All in one hundred thirty six countries. I think is but if all you're doing listened to the podcast and that's all you do and you never reach out to us our community you miss. The whole point is not just you listening. Issue getting connected. Why do you think we call it. Real men connec. We didn't say we'll listen to podcasts. The pool get to. That's the first step is getting your foot into that pool.

"It will it help yeah probably so it probably will help but we're going to at least say if you do this responsibly you should be able to to at least make a small profit every year and not have the axe constantly hanging over your head which is we lost a funded driver and now we're broke and now the teams out of business and who do i sell my equipment to and i'm gonna get pennies on the dollar for it and i'm just host which is why the charter system was first introduced it was after michael waltrip racing which to me that is one of the great tragedies of our time i love michael waltrip and you had a guy they're younger had a partner with toyota had sponsors lined up one pivotal tipping point where he lost a sponsor which to be fair they were responsible for they have to own that that richmond yes absolutely and i'm sure he would say the same thing but when the when the things started crumbling what was left they sold off all their cars for pennies on the dollar all their equipment for nothing they got no money back rob kaufman it invested millions of dollars if this company what did he get out of it not much it so the charter system was introduced this backup plan was like well at least you'll have this artificial thing to sell that will at least get you some of the money but to me it was just like a band aid on a gunshot wound like the basic core of this is not right and i think if you told those type of owners the derek copes of the world the morgan shepherds of the world they'll those guys that are older and doing whatever the takes to get by at this point and i'll i see those guys legends so this is not me a slide in any way but what if those guys were able to transition into ownership and know that that was going to make money too and they could bring any younger driver and take a chance on somebody instill turn a profit what if a driver could get hired purely on skill not saying they're going to get rich but they're going to get like a small salary and all they have.

"The people that outspend their means right right and you'll never stop that right ever but i think what i try to propose last year with jeff gluck was maybe a restructuring of how we split this money up a bit to make a small team like mine who we had four employees four to run the whole season we used scuff tires all year we ran the same motors for three to four races at a time we ran the same trucks eight or nine times a year if we can't make it who can make it it's not like we were paying everybody millions of dollars to work on these things right we had a very small staff so if we can't make it then nobody can make it and look all i'm saying is i think a team like that that's doing things small but still trying to compete there's gonna be some assurances there has to be some level of like okay those guys ought to be able to make it on the prize money alone they ought to be able to scrape by and show up to every race and not have to worry about buying the tires and that's all of asking for here i'm not asking you make me a millionaire i'm not asking for nascar to make me a bunch of money but i think there should be a level that we're at that we've never been to and it's simply because there's never been more money flowing through this thing as it is right now that it actually is probably achievable now that that middle half of the field is profitable now look if you want to spend more money and more are in d and get more people and have a bigger shop and show up to everything with this big hauler that has got satellite everything on it and go for it to stop you.

"Are now so that's encouraging and so if you take a spec motor and a spec body roughly well that we've never been that close from us i say this from the perspective of a small team so that's encouraging that's nice but even with all that the model still isn't profitable in fact the opposite and that is very discouraging so even though there are cost cutting measures in place and i'm hoping there are more to come it's still not bear yet which is what builds up my frustration because it's a model that we fought with my whole family's money for a long time and it seems like there hasn't been a big breakthrough on this thing yet this is a tough question ask tom yomas gonna ask anyway but why should it be fair to ask that all nascar teams can be profitable because when i look at auto racing in and try to look at it verse franchising and the professional sports obviously it's just not analogous on its face but when i look at the way other pro sports teams operate i think there's more the panthers are for sale and they're gonna fetch north of two billion dollars because it's just understood that there are mechanisms in place there that are gonna generate revenue guaranteed every year why do you think it's fair to ask that the same should be true in nascar which is always existed on this sort of independent contractor model we're not here to be some sort of centralized league where everybody's going to make money profit sharing although granted things have changed somewhat from that perspective with charter system in the cup series in recent years but just philosophically why do you think that team should be able to make money i think that is the future of this like how do you attract the next generation of people to own these teams who is that now this is a conversation that you and i had a little before we started here who's the next generation of owners who's the next generation of people that are gonna be willing to lose millions of dollars a year in order to put a race car out there on that track in an era then it's becoming tougher and tougher to find sponsors i've had multiple.

"When we record truck and we have to pay for it and figure out a way no you're not so there's like a certain level of criticism that you will take in there some that you just go man you have no idea what it's like back here and i think that was it just shed light on that and also explaining some of the issues that we had to deal with from an operation standpoint that i still think teams are dealing with now and so that's why i'm i fry i get frustrated when i don't see things change that i think could be changed like i don't want to be unrealistic here may like i'm not expecting every problem in nascar to be fixed overnight i'm not but we start talking about five and ten year periods and i've been in the sport and i don't see significant change to the financial model but then i get a little frustrated and i well what are we working on is it seems like the health of the sport would depend on the health of the teams as much as it does on nascar at self because they are the ones showing up every week they're putting on the show as far as i know nascar doesn't have a car out there in the field let's hope not if they did they it tell me about a safe by name in the hat that dr job because that would be a pretty good one i think it's a safe assumption to make that this is its own coming upon the teams as you say tom joe showing up and certainly nascar sets the rules and says the schedule and signs of the ancillary contracts make all the possible but really comes down to having teams and team owners and drivers are willing to put themselves out there and spend that money i should say right here that tommy joe's blog is still up and i believe you can get there by going off of your twitter account i i think there's a link to your past.

"If he turns one i mean i doubt that he does but at least gets a lot closer doing what he's doing which is maybe run scuff tires every once in a while maybe going with a smaller crew maybe use one pit crew for two cars which is what we've done several times which is why i'm sure if i looked at my pit road stats they'd probably be the worst in the history of the series because i i come in second every time and so he will come in and pit that i'll come in and pit and so i'll start at the back of the field every single time so that probably wouldn't look great on a stat sheet but we're doing what we have to do what's best for the team along term and what's best for the team long term is for it to not go out of business so he's going to take care of that first but he's also a competitor and one of the most competitive guys have ever been around so believe me he bites his lip on a lot of it absolutely he laughs that i stir up so much crap over it but he really enjoys the fact how competitive i am too and we're both going to do everything thing we can do to finish his highs we can with what we got every single week and i think there's something admirable about that so what is overall goal for the team i think he's happy in the xfinity series he feels like there are places even with the competitive balance that he can go and have a top five run at daytona talladega and he knows that if he did that in a cup car that's just not that's not realistic but maybe at a road course he can get a top ten maybe at a bristol he can get a top fifteen so there's something attractive to that then i think he wants to stay with a two car three cartoon tops probably but to car deal and just try to get a little better every year and it's small steps it's like right now we have two flange fit cars we both ran every race for the last races.
