"Next month or practice day and just kind of see what he can do and learn with being with the team and the McLaren team and sending in a debrief. He just wants to hear how they debrief. Where are they talking about how they discuss things? And how they look at things and kind of spend a day with them. He says, look, my schedule's really tight, but I do want to be able to kind of get down there one day and just kind of be fully immersed with them for that and just kind of get that experience. And like you said, yeah, he talked about being at Indianapolis in 2013 and just, you know, that was the year of the Boston Marathon bombing and how part of the pre race ceremonies was a number of people who were in the Boston Marathon who didn't get to finish the race. They allowed them to as part of the pre race ceremonies to run across the yard of bricks. He talked about it. It was so cool to walk out with the Ganassi drivers. And he thought it was really neat how, you know, some people recognized him. He hadn't really done much yet in his NASCAR career, was just starting that. And people, which again, it goes to that dirt community short track community that is so prevalent in the Midwest and Indiana and elsewhere. And just how that fan base really is a big fan of Indianapolis. And so to have that experience that favorable experience to have that seen what the Boston Marathon finishers and seeing the crowd and being down there on the grid and walking out with the drivers through the gasoline alley. He says, look, it was such a big morning. He's like, look, it's so big. I'm still talking about it ten years later. And he's like, I can't wait for next year. What that moment's going to be like, because I'm talking about this from ten years ago, what's next you're going to be like is he standing on the grid and walking to the grid and then get climbing in the car with 300,000 plus people around and singing it back home again in Indiana, firing the engines and taking the green flag for the Indianapolis 500. Yeah, you know that scene well, certainly. We certainly can't wait to see Kyle Larson in the Indy 500 next year. Can't wait for NBC's coverage of the 107th Indy 500 next month, May 28th on NBC. And also check out Dustin's story that's on NBC sports dot com slash motors. Motor sports talk, you can read what kal arsen had to say about

"Sent us around, so not the 12, just I honestly thought that he would leave me behind dry, coming back around and so just from a team and how it goes, so that was our best by far. Play race that we've ever done, so hats off to the 23 group, Freddie up on top of the roof and just a great day for us just to crap result, so hate it. I call that one and, man, I just, I thought I'd play out a little different. Obviously, not getting racked, but I thought the move would happen coming off through the tribal line. He threw essentially three blocks, I think that drivers generally, maybe you get one, but you know after that first one, if that doesn't work, you try it again in a third time. Bad things normally going to happen. And at that point, you can't blame the other guy. Was that how Ryan Blaney sought? Yeah, exactly. I mean, he said he was going to talk to bubba, but he's like, look, what more can I do? And you know, he's blocked me low, block me middle, block me high, and it's just like, you know, at that point it's time to go. And look, Ryan says, yes, we are Friends and good friends. And it stinks, but it's like, Ryan Blaney sitting on now a 56 race winless streak. For points race. I mean, I know I won the all star race last year, but he hasn't won a points race. You know, think about last year's Daytona 500. He was in position to win that, then his teammate blocks him and puts him into the wall, which is second at Talladega last year in the fall playoff race to chase. Now he has this where he's, he looks like he's going to be in the lead. Then the triple block and it forces him up and that allows Kyle Busch to shoot down the bottom and get ahead of him when the caution is out for bubba and the rest of the stuff that happened behind it. So it is wearing on him. We know the talent, it's just like, hey, you got to show it and got to prove it. And look, at Team Penske, it's about winning. It's not about seconds and thirds and fourths and fifths. It's about winning races and eventually winning and championships. And when you've got your teammate who is now the two time series champion coming off winning the championship, you better start winning races. We're probably gonna see that breakthrough happened sooner than later, you know, perhaps as soon as this weekend, for Ryan Blaney, maybe a Dover. And again, like I think we're gonna see it happen for Kyle Larson as well, not surprised me at all if he one Daytona later this year or Talladega or even the Daytona 500 to start next year. But before the race on Sunday at Talladega, Dustin, you had a chance to talk to Kyle Larson about another big race that he's running. The Indy 500 next year, he told you that he's going to be having a seat fitting in the next couple of weeks, which I know people might say, well, why is that important? Well, it's important because if they're getting Kyle Larson fitted for a seat in an IndyCar 13 months ahead of time, it's because they want to put them in a car soon. So I think we're going to see Kyle Larson testing in IndyCar. Certainly before the end of 2023, possibly before the end of the season. And I thought it was really interesting. I'll let you kind of fill people in on what else he had to say about he plans to beat Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a practice next month. But he also talked about when he went to the race in 2013 and the pageantry and just how overwhelmed he was by the crowd. I know it was an Indiana native. You were probably impressed by hearing that. Maybe not a surprise to Kyle Larson is around in the dirt community. A lot of people who have respect for Indy, but I thought it was really interesting how much reverence he clearly has for the brickyard. Well, yeah, it was interesting because I wanted to ask about any just, you know, this past week was the open test at Indianapolis Murray speedway and got a frankly watch some of it on peacock as I was working. So enjoyed our coverage on that and just kind of got thinking, well, Indy's starting to happen. There's the build up to ending now. And now that Long Beach has passed. So I just asked him to say, hey, with the open test, what are you thinking? Or is it even too early to start thinking about these things? And he said, I said, no. And as you mentioned, he was getting ready to get the seats fitting, which kind of surprised me. Obviously, that's a process, but like, yeah, you're right. They're wanting to get him in a car. At some point and start getting him used to, you know, if nothing else to get him in the car used to the steering wheel, all the knobs and the levers and things and switches that he's got a hit and just how that dash is going to be so much different than what he has with the cub car. So I think any test he does is as much just get used to your surroundings and get comfortable and get used to things when you start going at speed. But yeah, he did talk about wanting to go to Indianapolis Motor Speedway next month or practice day and just kind of see what he can do and learn with being with the team and the McLaren team and sending in a debrief. He just wants to hear how they debrief. Where are they talking about how they discuss things? And how they look at things and kind of spend a day with them. He says, look, my schedule's really tight, but I do want to be able to

"Of bending of roll bars since Orion Newman, Daytona 500 crash at the end of the 2020 race and NASCAR certainly reacted to that. We know that NASCAR took Larson's car back to the R&D center for further examination. What did you hear post raised us to? And what do you think NASCAR does next? Knowing how they treat safety is paramount. What are the next steps after this crash? Well, I think it's just an investigation of what happened there. And I think what's going to be interesting with this car, unlike the Ryan Newman car, obviously you've got the next speedway races Atlanta, and that's July. So do you have enough time to investigate, to come up with a solution, and now that we're in an era of vendor supplied parts, is this, is there enough time to get the things done in place for Atlanta with the Ryan Newman situation, you know, took him a while to investigate and come up with a solution test to go through that process. And then the teams could do what they needed to do, do that work. So now everybody's chassis and roll bars are coming from the same place versus before everybody was building those on their own. So I'm curious to see with the single source supplier does that change it? Does it delay it? Or does that make it easier in a way? I think there's a lot of questions. Things that will be different that NASCAR has to look at. Now, again, maybe they'll say, hey, this is pretty simple because we can make this one simple thing. And this will take care of it if it is. That's great, perfect. And move on. The incident was just, I mean, that was just scary to see. When they showed the replay of the impact of the media center, you heard audible gasp in the media center and a lot of us have seen some pretty bad things over the years and it still took your breath away to see that impact. And then to see the impact from the in car camera on priests and this visor flying up and just how violently he's being tossed around. One glad that he's okay, you know, that he's okay and I know he posted on Twitter Monday morning. He was at the gym working out and getting ready for Dover. So that's a good sign. I think one of the things that is, in one sense, you don't want to say something good comes out of an accident like this, but I think one good thing about it is being able to see that in car view of what priest went through because I think it's a good reminder to fans and people that, you know, when you see these crashes, there are people inside. There's a person inside each of those cars. And I think sometimes people forget that. And they just see these cars doing these wild things. And they see the blame Perkins rolling over 6 times in the Xfinity race on Saturday or Daniel Hamrick getting upside down and think how cool and spectacular that is. And it's like, look, there's somebody in there and credits and NASCAR for the safety that, you know, for those accidents and the Xfinity race for the Rhine priest, Kyle Larson incident. Yeah, I think it's going to be interesting to see what happens and what NASCAR does. Is it a quick fix? Is it an easy fix? Or is this something that is going to take a little bit more time? I'm certainly curious to see what they do possibly with the number 5 car with Larson's Chevy and how they might address that. But I'm glad you brought up priests because I think that was almost as telling and it almost as much a topic of discussion was I saw a lot of mentions on social media doesn't about the travel that we saw with Ryan Preece in that impact. And I don't know what NASCAR can do to address that. I'm sure that they're going to take a look at it. They're going to examine it and I know a lot of people are up in arms about like why is the driver moving so much as you mentioned his adviser comes off his hands are off the wheel. I'm wondering about 2.0 like one when you have a head on collision with a car that's virtually almost stopped and you're going probably close to a hundred miles an hour. I don't know how much you can address it in like a really meaningful way to keep the driver steadier stable. And then two, I think you make a really good point about, I don't think we've seen that view all that often. Another side effect of the next gen with all these cars having the in car cameras now and having this high def view, I can't think of many times we've seen in cars like that. And that perspective of seeing what the driver, I mean, usually in car is like through the front windshield to have the driver perspective, I don't know if we've seen that before. And I think that might have been as much as much as I was a really terrible impact. And difficult to watch, I think it was also jarring because we've never seen that before. It brought back memories of the 2001 accident investigation on the Dale Earnhardt crash. And if I'm remembering my details correctly, one of the things that they did at the press conference in Atlanta when they went over the accident report from Earnhardt's crash in the 2001 day ton of 500 is they showed an in car video and I want to say it was Johnny Benson in an accident and it was where he just basically slapped the wall. It came up and slapped the wall. And again, the seats were a lot different than. And it was a low speed impact and he just, he just bounced around and got jostled and you were thinking, holy cow, that's so much slower than what like the ironheart or some other impacts were. And it was eye opening in that sense. And seeing priests and seeing that in car camera brought me back to seeing that incident. 'cause yeah, I can't remember too many times where you've seen it. You know, how many times did we see here from drivers in the past of like when they have impacts and how they would hit their chest or hit their hit their head on the steering wheel? You don't hear that as much these days and again, maybe it still happens to some degree, but I don't think we see it or hear it as much. While we saw that video

"Get in on a peak, it's harder to stay there. You got to be prepared when you're at the top. We've been there. We've also been in the valley, the very bottom, and you got to work harder and have the right drive and emotion to put you up to the top. And that's what we've worked hard to get there. It took a long road, so it's been a fun deal. Me personally, it means a lot because I'm still doing this. Why do you do it? If you see all those fans up there, that's why we do it. You've known Richard Childress for a long time. Dustin, you've reported on him for a quarter century. What is it about him and his organization that they can be so old school, so much old guard, but yet when they bring in somebody like Kyle Busch, a world talent like this, again, I think they really just defer from what we've heard and what we've we're seeing, what Kyle Busch says kind of goes right now, which I think is a credit to a team like childress has been around for decades. I think the key thing with an organization like that or any organization is you either evolve or you die. And it's quite simple. I mean, if you're not going to find new ways of doing things, you're going to get passed up. And you know, we've been both covering the sport for many years and we can tick off the name of teams and owners that had bright ideas and ways to do it or even those that were kind of stuck on their ways and are gone. And childress is here. What Richard has gone through some unique periods. And obviously, you know, the great success with Earnhardt, then after Earnhardt's death, you know, Richard talked about in the past about, hey, do I get out of this? And there was a consideration, but what kept him in it, what kept him motivated, where his grandsons. And that was a key thing at that point, is this was building it for Austin and ty and putting the effort forth through that after Earnhardt's passing. After that, there still were some struggles. You know, they brought in Harvick and had him move into that leadership role. Along with Jeff Burton and a few others, but I think Harvick talked the recently looking back on his 800th career start. Maybe if there were things he could have done differently, lessons he learned and just how to approach people or approach things that like a place like a children. And to get his point across, he would hit with a sledgehammer when maybe it didn't need that you didn't need to use a sledgehammer and types of things. And sometimes if you're going to go in that direction, you're not going to get as much response from people, especially the approach Harvick used when he's still a newcomer. That's not, you know, that's going to be harder to sway veteran employees. But if you've got somebody like Kyle Busch, you know, is one, two championships, one is 62nd career win in cup. People are going to listen. And quite frankly, if they're not going to listen to Kyle Busch, then as owner of that organization, I'm going to question them or I'm going to run them out and say, hey, you know what? Thanks for your service. It's time to retire because you're going to, if you're going to do this, we're not going to be an organization. There's not, we're not going to be around. So I think in one sense, children sees what Kyle Busch can do for him and maybe this is the guy that can give him at least one last championship before Richard decides to retire before he decides to step away if he ever does. He's never had that opportunity because quite frankly, I don't know if any championship caliber driver has truly looked at children in the last 5, ten years per se. As a place to go for Kyle, would it have been as he was going through this process last year? Would it have been his first choice? I don't think so. I think you look at other teams, but because certain pieces didn't fall on together, you had to go down the list and childress became that. And I think, look, you know, as Richard says credit to Austin for bringing it up to him and Richard and the team reacting and basically recruiting him like a 5 star recruit in basketball or football and I thought that was interesting is in the press conference. He talked about how they made him feel good and they didn't think he was washed up, which in one sense is kind of hard to think of Kyle Busch washed up. But that's where he was. I mean, he what four wins the last three years. A lot of people would take that, but that's not Kyle Busch success. That's not Kyle Busch numbers. Richard Childress racing is like, look, somebody like this available. Hey, let's move heaven and earth to get this guy because of what he can do as much as they've reinvigorated accomplished. I think he's reinvigorated Richard Childress. Talladega has been so great RC, a race here in 1969 as one of the biggest breaks I got. I left here with about 1500, $2000 thought I'd never had to work again and here I am still rising. So I think he's here for this build RCR back to where we want to be. I want to make one final point on that. Kyle Busch, RCR dynamic that goes to the race where you have this situation where he's low on fuel and his crew chief, Randall Burnett, who we know very low key guy, but extremely successful, one three times last year with Tyler Reddick. Burnett asks Kyle Busch to pit. It's too late. So Kyle Busch is not able to do that, but Kyle Busch says later. There's no way you come to pit road and just throw away your day. Like your day's done, you know, and we didn't have any stage points. We had nothing. At that point in the race, you know, so I was just like, why not just take the chance? And so he said, pit pit, and I was like, that's a good thing. It's too late anyway. I knew I wasn't going to get it in there, but also I wouldn't have anyways. I would have just taken the chance and just said, you know what? Roll the dice. Let's go. I didn't really voice that over the radio about, hey, we got to win. We might as well just stay out and ride this thing out. I just thought it in my head. But you know, it's cool to work with Randall and obviously he gives me a lot of leeway just with my experience and stuff like that and being here. And so, you know, probably a few years ago, I would have pitted. And just taking the finish, whatever that might have been, we probably would have been caught up in that wreck, you know? So, but when I thought that we'd have a shot for a front row start there at the end, I was like, there's no way we can pit. I mean, if we run out of gas coming off a turn too after we take the green flag, so be it, you know?

"The editor of NASCAR talk, Dustin long, who was at Talladega superspeedway. I was at the boulevard. I was on the boulevard. He was on the boulevard and as he always is. He's also on the photo stand during the race. I know he loves that perch. Yes. Pretty good place to be yesterday, Dustin with all the action happening in the pits. We're going to get into that but first I want to talk about Kyle Busch, getting his second victory of the season. Who would have thought that we'd be talking about super speedways, Kyle Busch in his first season at Richard Childress racing, this victory at Talladega for Kyle Busch, his first on a super speedway since 2008, prior to this season, the only victories he had on super speedways, both in 2008, one at Daytona, one at Talladega. He could have won Daytona 500 this year, Dustin. I mean, certainly he had a great car. He crashed in the qualifying race there, but then he came back in the race and was in the mix to try to win the Daytona 500 until that last lap crash where he got involved in it. So I know you asked in the post race Kyle Busch and Richard Childress, a lot of interesting questions about how this relationship has worked. I want to get to some of that, but let's just start with Kyle Busch is the super speedway driver. Why he had such trouble winning races the last 15 years with Joe Gibbs Racing and why it seems like suddenly he's really good at it at RCR. I think what are the challenges when he was at Joe Gibbs Racing was just the toilets just didn't always have the numbers. Now obviously they were the ones, what was it in 16 with Denny and really kind of created that teamwork mentality. And that's why they had success because everybody was kind of doing their own thing on an island. The Toyota's worked together and then lo and behold, they win the Daytona 500 and then other people started paying attention to that. And so you don't have the numbers. Some people might make the point, hey, look, you know, he's had that big hit at Daytona in 2015 where he suffered the serious leg and foot injuries, missed the first 11 races of the season. And this style of racing, you have to be super aggressive. I'm not going to say not smart because you do have to be smart, but I think you almost have to turn that part of your brain off at times and just say, look, there's a hole, I'm going to go for it. Let's see what happens. And I think Kyle probably is more measured. Now whether it's because of 2015, whether that's because he's that type of a driver, you know, he's not the only one in the toilet, you know, that was in the Toyota camp for a long time that hadn't had success in speedway races. Obviously, Martin Truex Junior has never won on his speedway race. So is it something that their styles is something because of the fewer Toyota cars? I think they could be something related to that. So Kyle's a generational talent and he can do a lot of great things. Speedway racing doesn't maybe match up as well. But I don't know if that's a bunch of a worry other than for him, just the fact that, you know, for having such a great career at this point, he doesn't have that Daytona 500 victory. And look, he's come close to winning on speedways before, you know, more often and having some runner up finishes in the past. It also says a lot Dustin, I think, for Richard Childress racing and their degree of success on super speedways. This was the 13th win at Talladega for RCR, Kyle Busch joining Clint Boyer, Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt, as RCR drivers who have won at Talladega. They've had a ton of success at Daytona as well. Last year in the cutoff race for the regular season, Austin Dillon wins that race at Daytona to advance to the playoffs. So I feel as if Dustin RCR isn't a team we talk about a lot in terms of super speedway success and especially when we're talking about like the forwards and the other Chevys, but I think you're right. Like you kind of mentioned it, there's that strength in numbers in Chevrolet that Kyle Busch hasn't been accustomed to Toyota and you take that and couple it with the fact that RCR is pretty good on these super speedway programs really going back to the Earnhardt days. Well, I think what's really interesting about the RCR VA program is the last couple of years I think you look more at the Fords and you look at how well the Fords have worked together and you just think the Fords are the ones that are going to be the dominant ones and they're going to put themselves in position. We look at how good Brad Keselowski Joey Logano Ryan Blaney and some of those others are from the Ford camp on it, but like you noted Austin Dillon wins at Daytona last year with his teammate Tyler Reddick right behind him, so children's right up there at the front. And as you noted earlier too, hey, look, Kyle Busch, if there isn't over time in the Daytona 500, he leads lap 200. And the race goes into overtime and gets caught up and incident later. So, you know, childress RCR could easily have won the last three speedway races, and I'm not going to count Atlanta in that. But the Daytona Talladega races. And so this is who they are. One thing Kyle talked about is they don't have that strength right now in the short track, but this is an organization as good on the speedways and as you alluded to has had a history of being very good on the speedways. And so, you know, in one sense, it wasn't surprising to see a child's car up there. You know, one thing I noted in my Friday 5 leading into talent egg a weekend has had this graphic from got the information from racing insights and was just asking about, hey, you know, Kyle Busch's last win at Talladega was 2008. What's the longest gap between wins at a particular at Talladega? And he's had 28 races since that race and then gets that win on Sunday and that's the largest gap between wins at Talladega and for all time in the series it's third. Was it Terry Labonte had 40 some races between his victory in 1980 at Darlington and then was it 2003 or so in Darlington. So it shows in one sense how much it's as much a team game and how you are able to position yourself and to help that you get and so I think yes, childress is I think you say that this is the team to beat on the speedways right now, not Hendrick motor sports, not the Fords. It's Richard chills racing till somebody else knocks him off. Is this Austin Dillon's path again to the playoffs? Or is this another path for Kyle Busch to collect more playoff points? Here's a guy who didn't have playoff points last year, had those two engine failures with Toyota in the first round and was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the first time in his career. So, you know, he talked about in the press conference about just wanting to get off to a fast start. This helps and you know, see how they can continue to build at other tracks, but especially as speedways. Yeah, and no question RCR is definitely changed Kyle Busch's fortunes here early on the super speedways, but I think the big story of Kyle Busch going to Richard Childress racing this year was going to be the impact that he had on that organization. And you asked some good questions post race. You asked one of Kyle Busch about Dustin long NBC sports, Kyle 8 months ago at Watkins Glenn, you opened up about how it had been such a hard as hell year at that point. Where you were then to where you are now, to wins, what's it like to be Kyle Busch, what's your mindset now? Just having a good strong support system, obviously, you know, Samantha and brexton, my family first. But then from there, having a great bunch of guys that I'm surrounded by that when Richard made comment to Randall about there being a chance that I come over there, he was really pumped up about it and he was really excited about it and Petrie was as well too. I remember Petrie blowing me up for a couple of weeks on phone calls and stuff. So they didn't think that Kyle Busch was washed up or anything like that. And so it was really a breath of fresh air to get over there and get to work and it's trust me. I've probably done more worked harder in this year than I have in the last four. Just because of feeling like it's my

"For Kevin Harvick. I know he's got three sets of three, right? That's crazy. Well, this was attractive for a long time. Everybody would like max out with three wins. I think they'll junior had three Kyle Busch has three. I think Harvick had three for a while, and then it was Jimmy Johnson had three. It was like everybody had three at this racetrack for a long time. It was like, man, everybody has three wins. Then Kevin just took off and it was like, okay, well, different stratosphere at this point. He did and he's got some momentum this year, so I wouldn't count him out this weekend. Yeah, no, for sure, for sure. He's been kind of there. You know what I mean? It's one of those things where I feel good about where he's at right now. The last couple of years of Stewart Haas racing was kind of one of those. I don't know, man. At this point in the year, but they've come out decent. So I feel like he's in a pretty good spot to succeed. Right. So you mentioned, we have an X Factor this weekend. We just don't know what to expect with the new rules in play. At the short track. The short short track. But yeah, so that's the thing. And I saw Denny Hamlin's quotes about it. He's excited. He has no clue. He feels like it could lead to a very exciting race with so many teams not knowing what to expect, not having a setup book, ready to roll for this thing. So it could be a situation where somebody totally knew hits on something or off the truck. And goes and succeeds. We could see a Michael McDowell win who knows. That would be cool. He's a hometown guy. Yeah. Yeah, totally. There's a lot of things to play. Anything can happen. And it's one of those things where until you actually see a few laps on the track with these cars, one, you're not going to know how well the cars are going to handle. And two, you're not going to have a good gauge on who has at least found speed off the truck. So it's a wide open field this weekend going to Phoenix. Definitely, definitely. Well, why don't we get some expertise in terms of, by the way, expertise? I feel bad for rowdy this week, because my gosh. Well,
"kyle busch" Discussed on The Final Lap
"That's what he set up in the booth when he was doing the X feddy race. Yeah, yeah. I've got a funny story for you after we're off the air here. Remind me to tell you. Not related with Phoenix. Not for our listeners. It might get on the listener at some point, but this is off air for now. Wow, you got people throwing things at their audio devices now. They're like, no. What do you got, Toby? So besides Kevin Harvick, who do we got, that's pretty decent that we got to Kyle Busch has three wins, right? Yeah, Kyle Busch is good there, typically the Hendrick cars are pretty good there that ein car has been good there with Chase Elliott. He's not going to be there though, so maybe Josh Barry can sneak up there and surprise in his second start in the next gen car. Alex Bowman, that's his home track. He's good there. Yeah, Hamlin. I mean, there's lots of guys who've shown the ability to get it done here at Phoenix. So this is kind of a wide open thing, especially with the new package. We've got the new aerodynamic package. Where it's going to take away 30 to 40% of the down force. NASCAR says 30, I've heard Denny Hamlin say up to 40% down force will be removed. This is big. So we really don't know what we're going to see. But I do think with guys like Denny Hamlin, who were able to take care of their tires usually with a car that has less down force, they're going to be kind of slinging it out and burning those tires off. I think a Denny Hamlin could be a smart play this week. Logano has the most recent win there and he's got three in his back pocket two. Yeah. Yeah. It looks insane, by the way. Looking at a list of drivers with wins. It looks insane. You got two, three, 9,

"Okay. Hopefully. Amazing. I mean, I pulled it from TV. So you never know. That's a good point. That is a good point. Yeah, you've got to be careful with those. So second year in a row that William Byron has an early season win. Is he going to be out to lunch the rest of the summer now? I really don't think so, man. I mean, he this was a statement win for him. I mean, he was good all day long, had the fastest lap of the race by over a tenth of a second, which does not happen. In the next gen car. That does not happen. Joseph shrigley from toba Christa dot com actually looked up because he had a long stretch in the race where he had the lead and just did not relinquish it. Joseph got to thinking, what's the biggest longest lead somebody has had in the next gen car? Well, 217 and a half miles uninterrupted at the lead for William Byron on Sunday at Vegas is the most since the adaptation of the next gen car. Second most was Kyle Larson last year at homestead, where he led a 130.5 miles straight. 217 is a little bit more than 130. Yeah, that's a lot. What a dominant performance. Way of Byron had a really, really dominant performance in Sunday's race at Vegas. And man, I don't know, I feel you're wondering if he's going to be out to lunch because that's what happened kind of last year. You got that early man. He was an afterthought kind of after that. But I don't know, man. I really feel like he's got the confidence going. Like he was even close to the Daytona 500 win there. He was in the mix and the closing laps for the weird crazy stuff started happening. I just, I feel confident in him. I think this is the year he takes that extra step because the last couple of years it was like, okay, he was the guy that was outside the playoffs or right at the Virgil playoffs and then he was the guy that was winning races all of a sudden. I think he's the guy that wins races and looks like a championship threat. Like a legit championship threat. I have a question. So here in the early part of the season, we're seeing racetracks that we're going to see at the latter part of the season or the playoffs. And you always hear guys drivers crew chiefs, whatever. They always say, hey, you know, we got to take away something where we can learn for the playoffs. But you know this sport so much changes and happens between now and November that I just don't see that, especially with this car. Especially when you look at how this race played out in the spring last year, and then once we got later on the year, you just don't see the same results. You know what I mean? There's so much to change. We've never seen a dominant performance to this level in the next gen car. All year last year, we didn't have somebody run away like this. So it's one of those things where we won't really know. It's one of those things where you can guess and I still think Kyle Busch is my favorite to win the championship. Because I like how that teams come out strong this year. Like how you work that in, you almost forgot about them. He slapped the wall like two or three

"Racing analyst extraordinaire Chris wormy and wormser was it true what they told me that you were seen doing naked victory laps around Scottsdale quarter and old town after Kyle Busch found his way into victory lane. Well, I would have, but then there was an Xfinity race to follow it up right after. So unfortunately it was right back to work. I actually had some people call me like, where are we going to party? And I'm like, I'm not going to party, man. Let's get this Cole Custer ticket in. So unfortunately, Cole costs are great to the first two stages in the double zero, let us down, obviously, over that third stage wrecking himself, but hey look, you can't have your cake and eat it too, a double header, race weekend. Good to see a Kyle Busch performance, even if Custer let us down in the 19. It was still great. It was still great race. I mean, you got to remember that we have a lot attached to Kyle Busch in the way of futures. So definitely nice to see, you know, very rarely do we bet over, I guess, you could say, and so it's nice to have something that's like, hey, we could cash this thing hopefully earlier in the early in the season. And then take that 18 to one or the 15 to one ticket that we have on the championship and watch that closely and continue to hedge out and guarantee ourselves some money or at least put ourselves in a position to where we're going to make money no matter who wins in that final race at Phoenix. And I think it gives us a great place to start. Congrats obviously go to the a car Kyle Busch and RCR 19 straight season where he was able to amass one victory. You look at the last three years and he hasn't exactly been the dominant driver, but there is no doubt he put the entire field on notice winning his first regular race at Daytona is what it is, but Fontana a little bit more of a measuring stick. And obviously, a lot of that will be applicable going forward. We'll see how they unload this weekend a mile and a half track at Vegas. But I guess the overarching question that I have to ask, did you believe that the 8 car was the best last weekend on Fontana and the swan song at Auto Club speedway? No, I don't. I think that the best driver won the race. I do not think the best car won. I think that we would have had a really interesting race had Larsen, I had those electrical issues. I think that he probably would have been the best car. And I still have to say, I think that Ross Chastain had a better car than Kyle Busch. I know that I could probably get some, I guess, push back on that. However, man, he was able to get stuff on restarts and make up a lot of positions. And he led 91 laps. I mean, that's a pretty damn good performance. And you know, when it came to just really long runs, Kyle was just Kyle Busch, and he was, it's just a place where he runs well. It's a true driver's track, and I think that Kyle probably had the second or third best car, but he was the best driver on that track on Sunday, and that's why he was able to get the season going early with the early win at Fontana. And I think, you know, to your point, that was some of the better commentary that we heard during the course of the race. Listening to some of the former drivers talk about Auto Club speedway and the challenge it is for 200 miles at a tire wear track over the 200 laps excuse me that you don't get cheap wins there. It's a driver track. You have to go out there and get the most out of your equipment. And we saw that play out most importantly, we got a long green flag run at the end so we could see who the best car was. When we got into the closing laps, you mentioned Kyle and the exposure that you have to him this season. We've seen his over under for wins for the 2023 season, get boosted from one and a half now to three and a half. You've seen his odds to win the series championship cut in half from that 12 and a half, 13 to one range. He's now a co favorite alongside chase Elliott will get to chase a little bit later in the show because it still had scratching with NASCAR's most popular driver, but you mentioned Ross Chastain. What were some of the other takeaways that you saw from the race that may be lost to a lot of our listeners that are just tuning in to NASCAR for the first time or aren't conditioned to look for some of the same things that we do before we flip the page and start to focus on some of the betting basics and obviously a comprehensive breakdown of the Pennzoil 400. Well, I think that you have to look at just the situation that Tyler Reddick finds himself in and maybe even a little bit of Austin Dillon. I mean, you got to remember that Reddick had the best car there last year, which is the same car that Kyle's in this year, that 8 car for RCR. Kyle was able to get it done. And he had issues as well. He not only had to go to the back and I think he bumped off the wall a couple of times, even late in the race. I was a little stressed out. I was so nervous I didn't even tweet out the state green. I was like, man, I don't want to jinx it. But you know, I think it's kind of an interesting takeaway, Reddick really struggled in a Toyota. And Austin Dillon, he's been in that same equipment for a long time and has not had the success that the 8 team has seen or someone his teammate. So I mean, it's a very interesting start to the season with basically Reddick and Kyle swapping manufacturers. And you see tremendous

"Like this don't put ourselves in a position so early in the year that we're playing we're like trying to do things that are out of our characters. So Tyler Reddick, to me, stands out as a guy that, okay, you're watching the car, you drove last year, do what it's done. You watching what you guys have done, you haven't been out to finish a race yet. How do we address this? And let's don't react to it. Let's respond to it. Let's respond and make some whatever we need to do to perform, to get the finishes, to get a foundation built underneath us. This is a long-term relationship. This isn't just about the first two races of 2020 for 2023, rather than sitting about that. It's about what are we built to, so when we get to the end of the year, we're in position where we wanted to be. And I think it's important for them to have those conversations to get the foundation bill because they haven't been able to build a foundation yet. And that's going to be really important for that team. Great point. Certainly, keep an eye on that number 45 Toyota. We started out talking about the guy who's in the car. He was driving last year, the number 8 Chevrolet Kyle Busch and we finished talking about what's next for Tyler Reddick. That is definitely going to be interesting to watch. Always interesting talking to you, sir. Thanks for being here, Jeff. I know that it's a little bit of a slog getting back here to do this. And I always appreciate all of your time. The mayor, everybody. Thanks for being here. Thank you, Nate. We appreciate Jeff Burton for joining us on the NASCAR NBC podcast. Thanks to motor sports manager, Emily convoy, and senior associate producer Aaron feldstein for recording the mayor's appearance and for helping with the recording.

"So you go to California with something that you believe in and you're going to stick you're going to stick with it most likely or some people build something like, oh, that's too big on experiment. We need to bail. And go to something that's more reliable, but yeah, alloy 20 minutes of practice doesn't seem like much. It still gives you some direction. And by the way, it's not enough. We can't have a series of red practices for 20 minutes every week. I mean, at some point, at some point, and I know this controversial conversation, but at some point, we've got to have some days where we have more practice. That's just my opinion. There's some value in practice, not just for the teens and drivers and some value for the fans or some value for building up the energy for the weekend. I mean, we are the only major motor sports that is doing this. That doesn't make it wrong. Less practice is okay, but we've gone pretty far. On one side of it. Yeah, it really stood out for the biggest race of the year last week where I was really scratching my head before the duels. What would be the right number, do you think? An hour? I think it's fine to do some races with 20 minute practices. I also think we need, you know, we need some events where you have a full hour or teams and drivers. We've got to remember this too, now because we're also developing the next drivers. We're the only sport, except for golf, but major sport, that you pull for a driver that's going to retire. The Dallas Cowboys aren't going to retire. And you're going to pull if you're a cowboys fan, although you may or may not like him as a player. You're going to pull for that quarterback. You're going to pull for that running back. You're going to pull for that wide receiver. Because they got the star on their helmet. Here, you pull for Kevin Harvick. You pull, and that's no disrespect to the owners. You just, it is what it is. You pull for chase Elliott, whoever he is. Well, he's going to retire. And he's going to be replaced by somebody. So we've got to find the more you practice and time, you pull away from these young drivers, the more less opportunity they have to close the gap. And that is a major part of our sport is finding the next round of drivers. It's constant. Almost every year we have a driver leave. That's probably an exaggeration, but we've got to have a way in which our young drivers are being groomed and they have enough time to be ready when that shot comes. It's really, really important. I hear you. And there were certainly some examples of some drivers who younger drivers who have persevered, despite the lack of practice in recent years. Corey Lajoie, he stuck out to me, ran top 15 consistently, came back from some early trouble finished 14th, in terms of other underdogs. I think we saw some people run at the front. RFK racing looks strong again, that a lot of people talk to Jeff about how this was the first race of the real season as they say. And like you said, I don't know how much you can take away without practice and with fontan to sort of being a unique track, but what else stood out to you, both good and bad among teams. I thought that the Penske guys had good speed, and they just, I'm not a 100% sure what happened with legato, but he lost some late in the race. Blaine had, he got, he got damaged, sender got damaged. So they had some good speed, but didn't get the results that they had hoped to get based on the speed that they had Chase Elliott, chase Elliott, a champion, you know, running second is not great. It's a good sign because they really struggle toward the end of last year. That's good for them. Kevin Harvick. I'm just telling you he's going to be dangerous this year. There's a lot of question in my mind. He's going to be dangerous because Rodney childress has so much respect for Kevin Harvick that he brought in children is going to be his the best he can possibly be for Kevin Harvick to have a chance to leave full-time cup racing with that big trophy. Rodney and Kevin are coming into this year super, super hungry. This is not the hey, we're going to ride around retirement tour in a way that people make friends. That is going to be the opposite of that. They are on tilt their own full tilt. Martin Truex. So I know he finished 11th, but he was two laps down at one point. He won the won the clash. Didn't want to race all year, ran well last year, they had the wheel come off, but persevered and still had decent speed and came back and finished 11th. I mean, I know that again, it's not a great day for him, but then as we get deeper in the field, Harrison, the last third of the race, they had really good speed. They came over the top 15. That's an improvement for those guys on mile and a half for a young driver like we just talked about. Chase Briscoe is a surprise that he just they just didn't run well. And I was in person, so I'm not sure if they were having a mechanic. I don't know what was going on. But they just didn't have the speed that you expected. So you mentioned Corey Lajoie, you know, he was in a minimum of three incidents yesterday. I would, but listen to more his fault. He was in there digging and fighting with him and showing people, hey, we're going to be up front. Clearly, they've got more speed than they had last year. One of those incidents, I wanted to ask you about Jeff. I mean, I think it was the biggest yellow in California speedway history, like biggest number of Rex involved in that restart crash. There was a lot of discussion afterward from drivers. People would try to maybe pin it on Joey Logano and Joey Logano explained like, hey, the restart zone is longer now. And it's going to be different for us to judge off of our fellow competitors and the cars around us. Like, when to go into slow, that's going to take a little bit of adaptation time. What did you make of that? And the longer restart zone, if you have any insight into that for this year. Yeah, so I think that I think Joey got it exactly right. I think Joey didn't do anything wrong. I mean, I watch the restart. He left in the restart zone. The research zone is longer this year, most of the drivers wanted a bigger restart zone. So very enters the resource zone. He's in the resource zone still. He just went by the first line. He hasn't gotten to the second line. And he just now is accelerating. There went the second line. So Joey just went late in the box. And everybody behind him was trying to anticipate when that sort was going to be. This is a wreck that I've seen at California many times. This is not a new Rick. I've seen this wreck Ricky Stenhouse and I were talking about it last night. He's like, I've been in the same record. California. It gets more difficult. So the resource get more difficult on the tracks that the drivers are all on the same straight and they can't see around. So if you think about it where we have big polyps, we used to have an indie all the time. We've had a Pocono all the time, New Hampshire, places like that because the drivers can't see. If certain tracks are easier and you can see what's going on in front of you, so we don't get these polyps. The restart zone, yeah, I think it played a factor, but I also know that I've watched this wreck many times before with all different kinds of restart zones and all different kinds of rules.
Kyle Busch gets 1st RCR victory in Fontana's NASCAR farewell
"Just two races in with his new team at Richard Childress racing Kyle Busch goes to victory lane at Auto Club speedway in Los Angeles and Marx's name in the history books as the first driver to have 19 consecutive seasons with at least one win. There's not very many records that you can beat that Richard Petty has. With big changes coming to shorten the track, Bush said he was also glad to get the final NASCAR Cup Series win on the current two mile configuration. Sad day for me to see this racetrack be in its last race being a two mile configuration. So I'm glad I was able to win the final one here. Finishing second was chase Elliott, followed by Ross Chastain, who led the most laps on the day, but finished his third. I'm Jerry Jordan.
"kyle busch" Discussed on Bet The Board
"Ryan Blaney Kyle Busch, Christopher Bell, Tyler Reddick, Ross Chastain, Martin Truex Junior, Joey Logano, William Byron, you name it. All the big names up there. You can cast a pretty wide net in this particular spot. So when you begin to try and approach the pre week numbers that were out there and you look at the favorites, you look at the value, I guess it makes the most sense to start with the man who won this race a year ago. In California native and Kyle Larson and how you feel about the way he's being priced pre week, given that the last 8 races we've seen at Auto Club speedway for Kyle Larson, he's got four top two finishes, but he does also have four finishes outside the top ten. I think if you look at last year's race, yes, he did win. And there's obviously you have to give him credit for that. But I would say he wasn't even a top 5 car. You know, I know that sometimes you alluded to earlier in the show that maybe 20% of the time I'd say maybe it's a little higher than that, that the fastest car actually wins a race. This clearly was a situation where the fastest car did not win the race. I don't even know that a top 5 car won the race. So I know that that recency bias and he won there last time and he definitely showed some speed. By the way, he showed a little speed at homestead last year. I think he clubbed the field. Is this where you're going to go about patting yourself on the back saying he was record breaking speed and that Kyle Larson, if there were no other cars on the track, would have broken every land speed record or whatever the hell else you said that was so ridiculous and erroneous? Yeah, I could keep going if you want. But either way, I still think Larsen probably should be the favorite. However, he did not show the speed last year that was a race winning car. He definitely got it done late on a couple of restarts where he fought off Daniel Suarez, which we didn't realize at the time was going to be a contender. So we may be discounting Kyle Larson a little bit, but at 6 and a half to one or 7 to one. I'd rather see him unload super fast and bed him at maybe a plus four 50 or 5 to one. And I think when you look at the way the odds makers adjusted some of the prices last season, given the uncertainty of the next gen car and the parry that we saw, we didn't see a lot of race favorites even after practice and qualifying if they had the most dominant machine through practice. They qualified on the poll go off at the odds that we grew accustomed two years ago and you kind of took me under your wing to teach me the nuances of the sport where Kevin Harvick could go off at three to two. I mean, those days I think are in the past. So to your point, Kyle Larson go out there have a great machine. I can't see a scenario where he opens up less than four and a half to one. So what's the incentive to try and run and better him at 5 and a half or 6 right now until you know exactly what he's working with? I think that's really important. I mean, anything that you're going to bet on from an outright and a matchups perspective. I guess from any perspective, you want to make sure you're going to your predicting where the market's headed because if you don't think you're beating the market now and you think you might get a better price after practicing qualifying. Well, you sure as hell shouldn't be betting him right now. And I think when there's very little downside risk, like waiting on Kyle Larson, like Kyle's not going to go off at three to one. He'd have to be a rocket to go off at three to one. And by the way, if he does, we'll go ahead and take him at three to one. But you know, I'd rather wax. All right, we're still kind of in the precinct. To articulate just yet. I mean, I'd rather wait and see him unload and feel comfortable with this car because there's a good chance you get unload and they could be off a little bit and you might see a higher price on him. You know, maybe an 8 to 9 to one, especially if you see other really competitive drivers like maybe a chase Elliott or Kyle Busch, unload super fast, put it on the pole or at least qualify well. That could boost Kyle Larson's odds up. So at this point, I'm not interested in Larsen. I do think he should be the favorite, but I think he's probably properly priced. Well, we may as well go well go from one Kyle to another. And I'm a little bit reluctant to do this because I think other than maybe Kyle Busch's wife Samantha. You've pumped up the tires on the number 8 machine for RCR more than anybody this off season. So let's see if he can live up to those expectations. But when you look at Kyle Busch, Tyler Reddick driving the same car last year, led almost half the laps and arguably had the best car on track until he got caught up in a muddled mess late. When you look at Kyle Busch shown an ability to compete through the first two races, misfortune in the Daytona 500 that we talked about at the top of the show and it was Joey Logano driving through his rear at the clash. But this is arguably been one of Kyle Busch's best tracks. We saw a little bit of movement early on pre week from 12 to one at some shops down to ten to one. What are your expectations for Kyle Busch when he gets to go racing for the first time as a member of RCR? Well, this is where you're going to have to keep me in check, Todd, because I obviously have a lot on him at 18 to one. I have a lot on his over one and a half wins. So obviously my personal bias is going to lie with Kyle. So if ever I get off on a Kyle tangent, I hope that you and all the loyal listeners out there kind of really back in and be like, well, Kyle wasn't actually that good, or he might not actually be this good this week. You know, listen, Kyle was trashed there last year, and he struggled to make finishes. I think that they were very aggressive in that 18 Toyota and they made some mistakes. I think that that's why he found himself with a lot of DNFs or a lot of poor finishes where he was maybe had a tire failure or a late spin that kind of cost him the chance to win. It wasn't for a lack of speed. Now, if you want to look at specifically Fontana, this is one of his best tracks.
