Let's bring in the great Dawn and Galen Quickie joining me here for a FN sports this morning, Gentlemen Good Friday morning. Good Friday morning to you met Yes, for Jackie Robinson did was truly heroic. Met him briefly. I did know rather well, Pee Wee Reese, who was the shortstop on those great Dodger teams and very close to Jackie Robinson. He told me stories about him were quite amazing. Number one he was built for change. He was looking to break down barriers. After his career at U. C L. A, where he was an athlete, non parole in baseball, basketball, football and track. He enlisted in the Army and wanted to become an officer. Fort Riley, Kansas. They didn't give me a direct route to the other guys were getting to go to Officer candidate school. Most famous athlete in the world was at Fort Riley, Kansas at that time. He was Joe Louis, the heavyweight boxing champion, and he came out in favor of Robinson. Nobody really knew anything about him, though. You see a light in the West Coast. So did you get a chance? So Robinson literally led a group of black soldiers into the O. C s school They got in. They all took the test. They all passed it. And they all became officers. That's what he was like. No, He was an amazing guy and He We reached told me you could never believe. What he went through. You couldn't believe the things he heard. He never raises. Just knowing he knew he couldn't. He said if there was one guy you would want to get you would not want to get in a fight with it was Jackie Robinson. He had the greatest admiration form for his spirit. The way he never never backed down from anything. He just played baseball his first year and the National League. He was the National League Rookie of the year. Three years later, he was the National League Player of the Year. Most valuable player. And nine years after he got in. The Dodgers finally won a World Series and 55. Yaki leading the way. It's beautiful tribute. Nice to see everybody wearing the Number 42 yesterday as well. Well, there's nothing wrong with that. But what in the world is wrong with the Yankees? You guys goodness gracious. To money guys making too much money. I mean, no. Every year, Tampa Bay is a better team with 1/4 the payroll one sport. Yeah, you know they they load up on big contracts. I don't know. Nobody Everybody looks for answers, but they pay money for Guy says it might be on the downside of greatness. Yeah. What's one mistake they make Jean Carlo Stanton That hasn't turned out too well. Well, you know, he's the amazing thing about nobody's knocking around here, but The 1st 11 games he played in this year He had nine R B. I's So he did that throughout the season. He's got a pretty good year, but they want more and The but he is not hitting for average, that's for sure. If that 1 75 mad if you only got one home run, and you know the few fans that our at their games that are allowed to go are booing him Vehemently. I mean Jean Carlo standards, he's been a disaster in New York. Well, someone that is not a disaster in New York are G barrettes, The New York Knicks. They've there. They've won four straight. This is a very important home stand actually. Because if they continue it, they should make the playoffs. How much credit as Tom Thibodeau deserve for this Hey, deserves a ton of it. I mean, you know, the Knicks have won four straight there now. 29 27. They're the sixth seed in the East, and it's been one of the biggest stories in the NBA this year. The resurgence of the Knicks the long awaited resurgence if you want to put it that way. You know, people are wanting what the catalyst is. You know Julius Randle. He's been Grady's an all star 25 12 every night, RJ Barrett. People thought he was a bust last year. He's not. He's 20 points a night playing very good defense. What the head coach, man we've We've mentioned this before. Tom Thibodeau. He deserves a lot of credit. I'm eating crow on this. And I think you are too met My father. We didn't think this was a great higher and all we thought tips his last days in the NBA, where with the tables. But he's been phenomenally got these guys defending and just competing and playing hard. Very impressive. Yeah, now is, you know it started with the front office there, Andre change up and and the change in attitude in the front office. With not so much with ownership, but And then when tips came along. Yeah, there were questions. Was he going to do what he did in Chicago and Minnesota, But so far so good. How Apropo is it to have Michael Jordan? Speak for Kobe Bryant at the Hall of Fame and Shrine Mint for the Greatest Hall of Fame class of all time, That's all lies. It's the highest of honors. If you Michael Jordan, speaking for you mean the coolest thing about Michael Jordan, you know, most famous athlete in the world know that he's so private. He never does interviews. You don't know what he's like. That attitude is mystique is, you know you just the coolest guy of all time. So this is one of Kobe's greatest honors is to have Michael Jordan speak at his whole frame and tried when he spoke at his funeral, of course, and that was excellent. But like you said that one class this is his Hall of Fame because he got Tim Duncan and Kevin Guard had also going in. Rudy Top. Jonah Bitch. Rockets head coach. It's all good stuff there. It's It's the greatest. Is it not? I mean, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett right there alone when you're talking players and titles. It's up there. It's up there. It's hard to remember. You know. Colvin 1984. Come on game, gentlemen, What do you think about the partnership here between the NFL draft kings and Fanduel? I mean, we have a team in Las Vegas. So you know is this was this unexpected. Well. Pete Rozelle, the great commissioner of the National Football League for many years. Stated publicly. His greatest concern about pro sports was Gambling on games and one of my lead to him as far as it went, people perform. And now you've got all the major leagues and pro sports. Not only supporting a lot of our owners have an ownership position. Some of these betting sites So it's here to stay, that's for sure. And they can't stop it. It's a billion dollars to bed. I think Cove it you know that the lower revenues from covert last year has made a lot of these leagues really looking for other ways to bring in money, and they the end NFL The NFL is the last to this party. Every other pro leagues been involved with sports betting. Now, for a few years, the NFL is always last. Now they're they're involved and should be worth almost a billion dollars over five years. So it's no joke. So when we're talking expansion in the N B, a outside of Seattle do do we see a team possibly going to Las Vegas now? But that Where we are over that, because that was one of the main excuses for not having a team there. I think we do and I think they now look on Las Vegas is a great sight. I mean, the Raiders. They're having a you know, a tremendous reception there. Yeah, I think they're pros boarding. Hockey's fantastic there. Yeah, I think so. I mean evidence gonna be there that this is difficult to get a franchise before Seattle, Matt, That's what I'd like to know. No, they don't. We're working hard to bring him back here the way maybe Kevin Garnett can get in on the action up here. We're.

Everyday online all the time my guest. This week is an Italian Siren and multi-language singer who has made a mark in Las Vegas in a short period of time she hosts her own singing interview and cooking shows on facebook live. She's appeared on her own special on PBS and she happens to have been a last headliner Myers Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center she is Jada Valenti. How're you doing today? Would you I'm good. Now we've we've talked about doing this for quite a while. So I'm glad we finally got done when we first started talking about this you you didn't have your your facebook feifdom going at all. So I congratulate you in advance for making a such an effective use out of that platform you seem pretty happy doing doing your facebook stuff. It makes me happy because at least I have something to we are not performing anywhere and imports so much joy to many people I create new friendships among people that are I don't know in South Africa. Australia England they communicate with each other during the life which I think is pretty they talk hey, what are you gonNa like I'm not in there but Eat Eucharist Sanjoy, and actually being my inspiration you started to go live and I remember that too. You're talking and people were chewing up about seeing you there and I remember one day you said something that covid nineteen has a better person because we knew who has Jordan this busy the men in town, and then suddenly you time for your family Even for me I remember talking to you every day. I miss that John. It was the point was that when I was visiting my family in Idaho that you suddenly you're back in your original incarnation, you're the sun, the brother, the the. brother-in-law the uncle, the grandson you know, and that's where you are. That's where you are when when they take your costume away. So that was the point of it, but you know I mix it up pretty well, bit of Yeah I I've been interviewing so many people I'd be interviewing you and to Nelson many things about you and so many of my friends the normally I never had the time because I was always busy without saying to spend give attention to them. I've known that I mean. The is a is a beautiful world. There are so many great people out there and I think covid nineteen, slowdown, the world. So we we had more time for us for one full discover friends family I talked to my family normally I talked to my mom and dad every day. But now, I get to talk to other friends and family members in Italy because they know I'm home they are home. So I can hide behind nothing. Yes. Sorry. I'm busy now. I. Get this where I ask somebody if they can you know be interviewed or do something like, Hey, how your free Monday at two pm the answers usually been g let me check my schedule Yes. How many hours do you need? You talked about your family in Italy. You're originally from Venice as you've spoken of many times. Why did you? When did you move to Las Vegas? First of all, let's put the time stamp on what brought you to this city in the first place being Venice. Las Vegas would say here ago. I came I lived in New York City before before that I lived in La for two years and before that at least eleven years in New York City. So I moved from and before that Nancy them then London. So I've been like a gypsy, my whole life. But what brought me to Las Vegas is is been like a coincidence. You know had these special that films in two, thousand, fifteen and Two Thousand Sixteen around the United States and even though he was a national project. So Ola, he started from Washington every PBS stations around the United States. They have three, hundred, eighty, five of them. They can back it won't cost a show or not. So it Evans that I ninety five of them started broadcast in in two years time and so in every time I was going to a city for alive appearances on PBS. Dan Few months later counter. So Chicago your and actually Las Vegas was the one that was rejecting the shell I mean you were just saying We have so many are diesel. Let's wait for her a lot of in Las Vegas on PBS. A. Molly said because I don't gamble and I don't drink. So I was always on day when I'm going through, Vegas is going to be for business. So I'm going to be performing there. So I I never had put Las Vegas on the list of things places I wanted to go and visit, and then suddenly at the end of the two, here's traveling around the United States Las Vegas finally said, yes, we want to have their from his love which out of Atlanta sorry I came here a remember I did the the vision that studio PBS Studio. visit. To get a win myron actually from this needs Martin and it was pure coincidence. I didn't know nothing about Vegas, beside the Strip and that night the phone started to ring like crazy people were pledging for tickets for my council three months later at the Smith Center shovels. Wow this is quite great. The program was over and the phone was still wringing Yummy by now I said, let me go insane the people because these people are so nice. I pick up the phone and by Quainton UH spoke with this woman Irene it's a name and she invited me to talent American club. I said, okay why not the two strangers at Madison are bad can you be? So I win there there I met Dennis Bono everybody was so welcome in I started from la every month and I fell in love with Vegas the reason that's why I'm year now is because Vegas is beautiful place the. Basin you one of them I mean I lived in New York for eleven years, I met so many entertainment reporters. There are more superstar than stars, themselves and you for instance, you're part of the community. You talk to every person that WANNA share conversation with you. I think Vegas is a special place is really the entertainment. What did they call it? The the capital entertainments or the entertainment capital world and I think it is that what we call up? And? Sometimes some other vegas mindset don't say too much about a beautiful because everybody's moving here. So we should just say. Too Much? I'm always curious about people from outside Las Vegas think of Las Vegas and when I've traveled overseas at including Italy including your home town I'm always interested in what the natives and other overseas think of the city growing up in Venezuela, the of opinion European opinion of those around you about Las Vegas what? For me was is the Strip for the all over the world in Italy for has dream to come. To. Vegas. Vegas is gambles..

"Hello Everyone John Cats Lameda here coming to you with a little bonus content for the week. I want to introduce you to brand new podcast from the Review Journal. All Bob up. It's a podcast. All about the rise and fall of the mob in Las. Vegas told through. Wiretap recordings are audio and interviews with FBI agents politicians journalists and even ex-mob associates. Here's a sneak. Peek of the PODCAST. If you like what you hear. The first two episodes are available right now. If you search bobbed up forever you listen to podcasts. Las Vegas was better off when it was run by the mob. If you've spent some time in Vegas you've heard it before and if you live in Vegas you hear it all the time. The city was better when the mob had a stranglehold on its biggest business. Its Lifeblood when the Las Vegas Strip was largely mobbed up and crime families from all over the country New York Los Angeles Kansas City Cleveland Milwaukee Chicago at a tight grip on the flow of cash from any of the casinos. The people who say that the mob was that Las Vegas was better in those mob days. They missed the COPS. This is retired reporter and columnist gene and Morrison who wrote for the Las Vegas Review Journal for nearly four decades locals went to the hotels and were treated very nicely as locals and they got. They got lots of calm and they didn't have to pay for food drink or shows and people took care of them. They felt they felt like the town likes them. Oftentimes when people say they miss the mob days and it's because they're nostalgic for a time when Las Vegas was smaller when there was less traffic when you be greeted by name walking into a casino. They missed the free flowing. Booze Com shows free parking and buck ninety nine buffets. They miss things like Pie night. Which will get back to in a second to this day when people ask me where. I'm from an say Las Vegas you get the look. The voice. You're hearing belongs to Stan Hunterston. We moved to Las Vegas the late seventies to prosecute the mob as a special attorney with the US Department of Justice Organized Crime Strike Force. When I sat down with Stan you told me about a late. Uncle of his would often say to him. The town was better off when the mob ran. Stance has his uncle had a fair perspective. One based on his experience living in Las Vegas during the mob days He and his wife would go to pine night which they would have an show rooms once a week once a month. Something like that where you could go to show and see the main act and get pie and coffee for a dollar five dollars. Something like that finite as far as I know no longer exists and you know what that sucks pint sounds great and if that was your only experience with the mob in make sense you'd be nostalgic for the mob days but standpoint out in more ways than one not. Everyone in Vegas got to enjoy their slice of the PIE. That of course leaves of the the murders. The fact acted mafia obviously wasn't paying taxes on its share of the hall and the idea that the city was better off when the mob was running the show. Well it's not a point of view held by everyone who was around back then. It's held by people who I we're not killed but I've been offier didn't have a family member who.

"And so the thing is is that people still go to these places but whatever the control points are to make sure that again you don't have a fever or whatever it might be whatever the new normal becomes but people absolutely at a certain point in time probably within twenty four months. Thirty six months are going to want to experience big nightclubs because it's a visceral experience. Yeah I think I agree with you. I think that I think that the emotional connection to those places for what they deliver will will lead people to say. Okay we if we have to go through a security check. We'll we'll deal with a health check for lack of a better term health China great. That's that's it you know. Go through the line security. Check Line where you're you know. I can see what you're saying. I I when people people who for years said that you know yeah. The era of the Mega Club. You know is crested. It's over and when I go to these places and you know it's it's a powerful experience I have to say and it's an it's it's they're well populated for a reason and it's because they deliver something that nobody else can you know. The structures are beautiful. The technology is amazing. And it's you don't you don't count him out. I say that don't don't count these players like when when you go see when you go see lady Gaga as an example at park theatre. That's an experience if you see her at the nomad. That's an experience if you were to see her at a club in a club setting like Hong Kong or something. That's a different experience. Some point is is that you know a wide variety of options for people to show their best and their talent. You know is always something if you could see lady Gaga. Do Standard with Tony Bennett. If you could see our part theater if you could see her nomad if you could Seahawk Fan. They're all going to be different. And some are more intimate in summer broader but the places are built to deliver the best of that person in that environment. So depending on what you're looking for or maybe you're just a huge lady Gaga Fan. That wants all four. Because you WANNA see all four options if you will because you're a huge fan so I just think that clubs have been so synonymous with DJ's. But I think that in Las Vegas and around the world. We've seen that. They've been great places for traditional performers as well so they're really just entertainment centric places that you're getting a different experience. I promise you they're not going away. Yeah I totally agree. I agree sometimes my friends and entertainment community. Laugh at me when I said that. But there's there's there's a lot of appeal to these clubs like saying it's like saying the shows are dead in Vegas. The late Chosen Vegas are deadened Vegas and then someone comes out does absent and it's just different if you do like you know the knock on circle of these years. Is they become a victim of their own. Success there so popular that it becomes passe that their brand entertainment. Isn't you know what people want while it's not necessarily that doing fifteen shows? Maybe not maybe if there were five you know. So that's the thing with the clubs. An- shows in general is that sometimes they become victims of their success because then every resorts like Mayfair as an example. Okay now everybody wanted you know at least when I was there All all these other people wanted quote unquote supper clubs. Told me that a couple of general managers had told you they wanted quote unquote supper clubs. Yeah I've been asked about it immediately about the appeal of it. What would you know what it felt like to be in there? How you know how played and especially at a place like Balaj which was so prominent right on the water and it had a history of different doing different things in that location. But I think you know when when we bring up the like entertained like headliners might have to be more do more apply more dexterity in their live Experience in the next phase of entertainment cirque Du Soleil People Forget often at circus. Lewis started as dance or as a as a breach of street performers in a traveling show and attended show in in more of the scale of an absence and they could easily deliver that again. You know I think that people will realize that you mentioned you know who seeing lady Gaga in different formats. You know I. I look at somebody like Celine Dion. Who has been known of course was a trailblazer at the Coliseum? But I've also seen her dude in the arena in in Nashville and blow minds and also with Steve Aoki Omnia and I think entertainers start to look at how they can deliver their art in knows different venues. You might come to away to see how this move forward After out of this crisis I think that I think that might be the way we're going. Well I lady Gaga you. Know is a great example. Someone who probably takes as much pleasure playing for her families and friends at home as to eighteen thousand people because she's just a performer Thing is back when I grow up. I was used to the US You know in the early days of Madonna. You know she was the original who every few years switched her sound switched her luck and was always you know in the beginning. Maybe it's uncomfortable. You know the new presentation of whatever music or kind of visual presence was but people artists in general people but artists. Also who don't change just become I duNno. Classic are all in some cases classic in the case of there's always a business for like a huge yacht rock fan pat can never get tired of seeing. Classic Yacht Rock like I saw Michael McDonald Venetian last year. I could see him often. So it's not like his career disappears because he's an older guy but they go into the bucket of kind of classics if you will whereas someone like Madonna might even be relevant today with new music at Last hit but even is recently. Is maybe five. Six years ago had a thirty year career of you know staying on top in being relevant you know in the EDM space guys like stone. David Guetta been around for twenty five years and are still the top draws in the world. So it's just a matter of Where are you? Are you still working with the best producers the best people to solve the same drive and things like that so you either change or you get left behind if my entire motto was? Hey I'm sean. The Club Guy. Then I become an old club guy if I become SEAN. Chrissy a guy who's leading hospitality company that wants to create new experiences. That at the core please you You know in in an always striving to please you that kind of where I want to be In in in this new company if you will yeah well. That's that's an excellent way to land at Sean. I know that It's it's been a challenging time also opportunity in all these crises. I know that you're you're gonNA It's definitely going to be a focal point when this when this was all in the rear view mirror behind us in some way. I like the idea by the way I think you could build an entire nightlife experience around. Yeah interesting enough. Prior to the crisis we did yacht rock Fridays at nomad. Yeah I know I saw one of them. Yeah I walked. I didn't I've had not been aware it was in the music. Drew me in and I spent about an hour and it's Eh define crowd in a couple of my friends that are hooting and hollering. Yeah a yacht rock guy show. We had the wind. Jammers was formed by a bunch of veteran top notch musicians in Las Vegas and erotic rox lounge at record they were getting all kinds of overtures after just like four after four shows was so fun so I think I think I would say bookmark back concept. Shout Shout Shout Yoplait crew. If you don't know who they are. They're southern California band that Does a whole Gimmickry with outfits but are good and if you just check out. Ya crew credible and so I want to get them out here. Yep Great Name. All right when you do name your your your your company. Let me know and I'll kick that out and then any any advances you're making. I'm always on the other end of the end of the line and I appreciate your Your time and everything you've delivered to the city and we'll just keep keep plowing forward likewise all right brother. He'll listen johnny. Keep doing what you're doing because I think that especially in this time you're instagram's your podcast recalls. I mean for me. They've been a bright spot because talking about how this city is going to come back with entertainment with notable figures. It really is a bright spot. People need things to latch onto and I think that again. This city is the capital of entertainment in the world. So you know the things you're doing I'm bringing people on your show and talking about kind of. Hey what are the next steps in? How do you feel about it and all these great things and reminding people of what this city is at its core is.

"Have that be an option you know and and you know in your commiserate with with fellow tourists that way on a on a big zoom zoom. Hang before you even go out to the Casino we have. It seems to agree opened up some different types of of entertainment options on digital in the virtual world where virtual might not even be the way to describe it. But I I mean that's just are you continuing to think in those terms to break down barriers and create experiences. That aren't even In-person necessarily I mean I think first of all people WANNA be connected connected. I think in watching even tweens and younger people like my daughter when she was playing video games and was connected via her headset. If you will to other people around the world to play minecraft or whatever it is used playing at that time she's really not into it right now but people want to be connected in general and the the the Internet if you will has connected all of us in some shape or form. We have a global economy. We're seeing that now and so like even the idea that again using hotel room this example there are plenty of times where. I've traveled or gone somewhere. I don't want to go to the gym. I do WANNA work out in. There's not really a meaningful way of doing that. Where again that morning? I want to have my cup of coffee. You know when you go somewhere on business or for or for pleasure usually have a tight window in so especially when your business which this town is made up of? I Dunno more than a third or more of group business. Your your agenda is usually fully including many people. Burn the candles on both ends in Las Vegas especially right so offering things up in room is important in a more meaningful way. So whether that's working out or having the ability to have coffee in my room without calling room service or whatever or doing yoga or you know meditating or or just wellness in general Those things or maybe it is that you want to have the supplies. Because a great mixologist is doing a virtual mixologist class to show you how to make an fashionable fashion. You Need Bourbon. Bourbon sugar embitter. Basically with a mixing in glass. But maybe in my room before I go out to unwind because I don't feel like going You know to lobby bar. Maybe I want to do that in my room. GimMe the tools to do that. Kim You the tools to potentially have a peltonen bigger rooms and things like that so You know the the exploration is always for what is next not. It doesn't interest me to do a big nightclub right now. Only because there's so many of them in town and there's a big one teed up every resorts World Yeah. My interest is always. What's not but if somebody wanted me to do a club in it made sense and there was a business opportunity to do that and I felt like I could do a good job but I only want to do things I mean. I like to compete to be the best at anything and what I really find. Interesting are to be honest with you. Our sports bars. That's kind of where my head is at in terms of. How do we make the sports experience? We kind of started going there with money line. It was doing great after we redid it yet. I'd worked on the win one before I left there but You know this intersection of these sportsbook. Sports bars that sit primarily empty after ten o'clock at night. How can we change those things? I think a lot about things like that because the more you shoot the more you put things to use the better. I agree with you. One hundred percent on both those point especially the sports is entertainment You know at places like moneyline which is one of the last. I think that was the last place I actually was in park. Mgm was was in the money line before all this happened and seeing what's happened in for example being town it's weirdly enough. It's called Ben. Mgm Now not weirdly enough but they changed the name to go there apple. It's actually called bet. Mgm now that facilities called GM. While they I was at the very last second probably lost in the pandemic. But I you know blow awhile ended up. I didn't know that and GM to coincide their APP. Yeah okay. Well it probably was named that and I still loosely calling it money line same facility of course same course Yeah but The the the trend has been a in downtown. Las Vegas also where I live in. Do spend a lot of time meekly. They're doing Derek Stevens. Doing with circa has been to to aggressively blend sports and entertainment in in his sportsbook doubled to deck one thousand capacities or its annex. Is His chief. Entertainment draw to and That it seems like that's that's a uniform move throughout the city is to get the enter the entertainment concept in the entertainment art or the sports betting culture and its architecture as an entertainment venue. And I think a course. This Paul's over. That sounds like something. You're acutely interested in too well. Sports sports is like the weather in the sense that you know people When there's like an icebreaker where the person are elevator conversation or you know. The weather stinks said. The weather's beautiful. Oh Yeah how is it? Where are you from this that but you know in our country in other countries but in this country if I told you I was from Boston you know one of the first things that might come to your mind? Are Tom Brady or the hatred or I played this sport or whatever and it is you know men women and children of all shapes sizes in ages races like their team. The thing is is that it's one of those things where we talked about nightclubs. That's even though that this city has done a great job of opening it up to the broadest segment of the population as I've seen in the world because it's it's entertainment in this town because there's production and it's one of those things that check the box. I went to see David Guetta at you know excess encore beach club or Zadok Assan or whatever it might be but sports is one of those things where you can enjoy it as a family. You can enjoy it with your buddies. You can enjoy with your wife with a you know when the Boston Red Sox had a huge drought in you know being able to kind of watch like a super bowl with my grandmother. Who's in her nineties and see the Patriots Win Was a great experience for me so what I like about it is it is not defined by anything and everybody's got a piece of it so so working on those types of things to meet the needs of a wide variety but I also think that as an example even though Dr Stevens US great example. Because he's trying to do it differently and better When I was at win we tried to do that too. So the evolution of the sports book the Experience Related To sports bars and sports betting and all of those things as an experience That's something I'm acutely interested in Because Sports Fan I just think entertainment is entertainment. Whether it's a club concert sportsbook sports bar you go out and you say I had fun. That is the ultimate compliment to the place. You're at because it just means that all the hurdles that you encumber from getting into the place to leave the place if you didn't have a great chicken wing if somebody was rude to you but in the end if you had fun That is a place that is always going to be a winner. So that's what what I ultimately like to do is just create things that people say. Hey that was fun. I'll go back because if you can create that more often than not you'll always be a winner. You mentioned it kind. Of In passing her sean the resorts world and their plans to open a mega club. They also have a as I understand it A A massive Theater in their blueprint talk about the club is this post. Pandemic is that has had a wise move to to invest in a major nightclub in your property given What we're we're going through with. Just forget the stay at home initiatives and everything we have right now going forward culturally. Our people are going to want to you know flood into a new nightclub on the Strip right away. Well if they were again I don't know much about the plans for the Resorts World Club other than you know. Maybe one layer more than the general public but they may not want to rush to it today but if they're opening that club two years from today and there were safety measures bef- you know up until three years ago as an example in nightclubs in Las Vegas around the country when we opened encore beach club as an example even go back further. There were no bag checks there. No you know you didn't have to check things. And even as recently as four years ago there was no one inning So as long as there are safety measures that are transparent that I tell you you know again on a website or with instagram or hover. I disseminate the information. Here's the way we are protecting you in this again nightclub as an example or you know a concert hall or theatre here the ways. We're going to do that. I'm transparent about it. We've coordinated with the local government the CDC all these things here our standards and we feel like we have the best practices because of Abyan see were fully transparent about it. You go there again. It might be a little more cumbersome when used to come to the club when I worked at Light Nightclub Lajoie in two thousand one. It was very easy. You just open the door you let the person they walked in now when you go to a nightclub in Las Vegas There's five security guards. There's really tight controls with ide- checking you know that the ideas might go into machine that validate that it is a real one because back in the day it was easy a lot easier to Ford. There is not as much technology to detect. Forgery is really kind of one of those things where you're trained with a buck. It a flashlight but it was manual. But now you can put an ID into You know basically a computer system that says this is real. This is the person as an example. You'd go through a cashier. You go through wanting they pat you down. If you're a woman they go through your purse if your man they might go through your wallet. It might take you two more minutes but I promise you that is the friction but when you get in there you feel better. Yeah because I know that I'm safer like you're insecure territory if you will as much.

How are you holding up? How's your family doing? Everyone's great thank you. We're doing our part by staying in and you know quarantining if you will and be excited when out of quarantine some owed everyone else but yeah everyone's safe and all that so. Thank you the last time we had. We'd had a chance to talk. You just announced that you were leading. Mgm Resorts International. Where you were heading up the nightlife division for about three years right. Yep Give or take two and a half three years that's correct and and we had a chat about that after you posted about a the Dow that move Before we get into their background and all that about what? Got You to where you are. Now what's what's the latest. What's your next move I understand? You're you've got something else in the works. Yeah you know so. I came from the world of kind of independent companies When I worked in Boston I worked for Canada premier. I guess small business if you will ended up being a large large hospitality business but the lions group them. When I came to Vegas I worked for Light Group and then you know after like group I did my own company was I called Las Vegas Nightlife Group in did things primarily at the wind but also the M. resort city centre amongst other things. So I'm going to kind of go back to those roots and start another hospitality company toward the end of the year You know albeit probably start small but you know my intention again depending on what happens related to kind of the circumstances wherein You know to grow that. Bigger quickly quickly Depending on all the things that are unknown at the moment. What's it going to be called? You know I I don't know yet I mean I. I don't have a specific I have a name Probably similar to a lot of people kind of working through an Ip attorney right now. I have several names that all have hospitality in it but things are moving a little bit slower. I don't know if that's the government or I kind of IP lawyer. But I'll definitely let you know sooner rather than later and you've you said near the end of the year as era is being fourth quarter fall winter. That General Timeline. Yes. I'M GONNA sign. Actually interestingly enough in the next week or two lease for an office only because I Can I'm not a great worker from home type person and so probably have an office a small office in June and then I honest- honestly I mean I could start now but in I am. You know have been doing a lot of kind of the back end work but as it relates to. Kinda getting deals going in things like that you know the primary interest of people that I would be working with and people who would be investing in me. I think that the that their primary interest you know are going to be reopening their businesses through the summer. So that's Kinda why I've a loose placeholder to say that that would be happening in Q. Three Q. Four. I mean again. It's it's it's somewhat of tired. I will be working as of June on all the back. End Stuff in hiring people You know I've I've investors that are gonna be you know partners investors with me But you know really related to. When does the government and the industry in the economy reopened? I mean I saw the presidential address yesterday which seemed egg but look like a plan of some kind is one face to face three and it seemed like face to was part of the approach of things reopening in a new normal way and then. I was assuming that maybe a phase for so I feel like it could be good timing because one of my main objectives would be to do my small part to get people back to work if you will On that's really one of my main objective is to do my part to get all these incredible people or as many that I know that I worked with and are laid off for furloughed or whatever you WANNA call it. The people who find themselves out of a job after this is concluded meaning in the next three to six months the people who ended up being permanently laid off. I WANNA put those people back to work in. Do my small part right. What what What kind of staffer can have all the beginning to startup? So I'm kind of thinking of probably some Again some familiar Reputable faces in the hospitality industry. That'd be coming on board. I've gotten some soft commitment so the past couple of weeks of people who again Are Happy that there's kind of something that when I called them. That seemed interesting. Seemed like an opportunity might be a crack of light in a kind of a dark tunnel at the moment and so probably in the beginning A staff of up to six to ten throughout the summer because I have to have expertise. Experience Talent When I get rolling hopefully in the fall and at the at the later portion may be in the winter if you will because I mean at the end of the day. I think that we probably all think although I'm not an expert News Watch TV. And try to stay. Informed is that next year meaning after January first is going to be a lot brighter than This year but I also think that companies and people are going to need companies like mind that create content create while and also drive. People into buildings I think more than ever. There's going to be a need for those types of things right in in the near future. Your focus is going to be an entirely on Las Vegas John. It going to be based on the Las Vegas 'cause you know as we talked about earlier My Fam- my daughter's here. But no I mean. My intent is actually to grow nationally Not going to bite off more than I can chew. But I'll be based in Las Vegas. My roots in hospitality over the last twenty years of here but numb intentions are to be in multiple markets in the following year as I kind of identify opportunities for companies that I can integrate with partner with or maybe even financially depending on kind of the fallout of this prop up or by whatever that might be but I think those types of opportunities are gonna be the types of opportunities that reveal themselves throughout this year which types of resorts do you see yourself. Which types of operator partners are you seeing you just came from? Mgm Resorts International in Your Initiatives. Are you know pretty much in place when you left? Who who would turn around and enlist the SEAN crispy Hospitality Company to help that would be strip resorts that scale. But it'd be more locally driven. Where where do you think you're GONNA get your Your Business? I mean early business. I've already had people reach out to me when I did. I think that You're in my chat Earlier in the month I think peaks some initial interest so I actually had a couple strip operators already reach out to me for various opportunities which you know we kind of had a place holders that when it's appropriate to chat because their primary interests were related to reopening their respective resorts. But I think initially where my Deals would be where. I could probably have an impact in this year or early next year may be starting it up this year with the idea that you know getting integrated next year maybe or at the latter part of this year all came from quote unquote strip operators multiple strip operators Any of those things transpire. You know who knows but it seemed like there was a lot of early interest for person like myself that could you know put together inexperienced team the other good part about that is Well it's actually not a great part but good part is is. I can probably put some skilled people back in the workforce sooner rather than later as a result of you know kind of meat putting a flag if you will. I think in your career if I'm not at least in Las Vegas Sean. If I have this right you haven't gone backward. You haven't gone back into a partnership before you've always gone to a different thing. A new thing another new thing is it safe to say that your next partnerships An and your partner is. We'll be people with whom you haven't worked before. Are you opening up to two previous employers like an MGM resorts Wynn encore? Would you consider an have? You considered Maybe some Some Version of the relationship with the with those types of operators. Look I have great. I've never left the only two that I've worked As kind of an executive were WYNN RESORTS MGM RESORTS. On both of those cases parted ways left on great terms have great friends. I'm always interested in look. I like working with people I've worked with before our 'cause you know you kind of both parties kind of know what they're getting So I'm really just open for business whether it's with someone new or not old but You know or whether it's a past relationship so open all I've had both I've had a company reach out to that I had not worked with and I didn't really know well and was kind of out of the blue again based on probably seeing maybe your column and then Had someone else reach out to me? That I had a relationship with a prior to this so so it doesn't really matter to me? I mean it does matter when there's an actual something to work on Not wouldn't just take deal nor would anybody you know it has to be the right place in the right fit But you know after working with MGM. Sony different markets working on so many different projects. I feel like my skill set and then the you know the people that bring in which you know would probably be something announced like in September ish area again all depending on the information that seems to change by the minute You know the skill sets are going to be very diverse. And so it's not about me. It's always about the team right now though it's about me only because I'm talking to you about it. There's a those.

"And welcome back to muses live from Las Vegas. You just pointed out hoppy March first happy March. First we have transitioned. We have left the most depressing month of the year behind. Yeah I'm really happy about that. Feburary is not ever my favorite month. It's just brutal. So what a way to celebrate tubes such a bright and Sunny Day. Perfect PERFECT MORNING. Here really yeah. I crashed hard last night. I was asleep before many women even left the house to go back to your hotel. I came over. You're like can I just like Cinderella exit here Irish goodbye goodbye. Yeah I did say I tap if you will say lineup ahead but yeah. I was one of those nights where you're asleep within five minutes of your head hitting the pillow. So I had an excellent sleep. I slept through the night. It was really restful and I just ain't drank tea last night. So at the writing work really. I drink tea and water all night but tonight I'm going to have some wine. I definitely drink all the wine. Some white claws so I didn't even know what a white cloth was until you haven't lived until you know what do I don't throw away cloudy tonight. Yes we spent the morning by the pool. We've made a couple of pots of coffee. You've had your breakfast. Adds nice just getting reenergized because last night was the writing group but today we're having it in the afternoon so yep so at around six o'clock all of the women arrived. Yesterday there was thirty of us. Let's say imagine that thirty women all in one room it was just like sight to behold now to see everybody it not just to see it but to be in that room like the energy is just unbelievable. It's like so positive. It's so special you really do feel connected to everyone. Even if you haven't had a single conversation was someone in there at the other side of the room after they read your you feel connected to them absolutely no them so the way. That pamelas writing workshops go is that everybody sits in what kind of looks like a circle and then even sometimes because there's so many women than there's an inner circle where there's a second circle of women kind of sitting on the floor now down by this definitely happened I think we'll probably all choose different seats tonight. The Act Yeah it'd be fun to Macau generally works. Yes beside someone different. Get a different VIBE. Talk to different people. Yeah and this one went a little bit differently. But we'll tell you how it goes normally and then we can tell you how we mixed it up which was actually brilliant. Yet you unexplained okay. Well usually what happens is Miss Pamela? Gives you a prompt? So what was the first prompt for the first primed and I will tell everybody what it is right here is. What would you say to your thirteen year old self? Yes so then. We get about twelve to minutes to write. Whatever comes into your head the rules. Are you just supposed to write it down? No scribbling out anything just kind of free flow. Whatever is in your mind you put down on paper and then after twelve minutes. Pamela says all right that's enough and then normally everybody puts their pens down. Everybody closes our laptops. And you're fully present listening to the speaker. Yes so you go around the room and each read your piece now because it was thirty people at this convention. We couldn't all read every prompting that we wrote so we got split into half's so the first group was we. Have these really cool name tags that almost like a backstage pass? Yes and they have one of each of her books on it. I'm with the band taken piece. My heart let spend the night together and let it bleed so the first two books read the first prompt and then the second two books read our second prompt. So yeah it and so everybody was still listening to everyone. As opposed to being split up into different rooms of the house. Everybody was still altogether and the second prompt was. I won't get fooled again. Yes and they were brilliant. There's a lot of like laughing. There's a lot of crying. There's a lot of yelling because people get really passionate about these things. So what ended up happening was I really liked my first prompt and it was something that I've been kind of meaning to write about in as I said to you like I've wanted to go a little bit deeper into a. I don't know just my just go deeper. Just go deep going to go deeper and I was disappointed not as appointed by the second prompt. It just the second. Prompt didn't speak to as much as what I would have said to my thirteen year. Old Self Yeah so what ended up happening. Which was kind of a blessing was. I wasn't in the first group so I wasn't supposed to read my first prom and it was a little bit disappointed on that because I knew it would have been really Cathartic and healing experience to read that everybody and then what ended up happening because we were the second group I think it was Ellen Orlando. They kind of said well. Can we choose the second group? Choose between the first and the second and it ended up. Yeah you can so then. For the third round the first group then could choose between the last prompt and a second prompt. So that's if that sounds confusing. Don't worry about it but everybody ended up getting a choice. Everybody could kind of read what they wanted to read. What stood out to them? The what they were most proud of. Yes so it was really. It was really Cathartic and I was able to read that for everybody and then you read. I read won't give world again and it was awesome. It was short. It was something I needed to. Just get out of my system so put that out there and you know when you when you read to like a group of women like that. It was like something that I need to do that. If I keep it to myself maybe I'll like slide back into bad behavior Like if I announce us to a room full of incredible women. There's no turning back. I have to do what I'm saying I'm going to do so. That was just like another way to ensure that I'm going to move forward so wonderful. Yeah I loved it and then what we've got going on for today is we're going to do our writing workshop in just a couple of hours here so we're going to get ready for that but after the writing workshop were all having dinner here at the House. Yeah so Jenny. Who's amazing is gone to get the groceries. And then when she gets back to help her prep as much as she needs you know like cutting and everything so by the time the writing workshop is over we don't have to start cutting the veggies and the cooking the meat and everything it'll more just be kind of a warm up and it's a great idea. We're GONNA have tacos because with people who are vegan vegetarian gluten free dietary restrictions. You can kind of cover your bases with Kind of serve yourself Taco barnes perfect. Oh I also WANNA mention if you haven't come to one of these events yet And you know you're hearing all this and you're like this sounds so exciting one other really fun thing that happened. After you went to bed I was still a couple of the other dolls. Were up and I got to sit around and listen to some incredible groupies stories. These women are just amazing and all of them could be like guests on the podcast and they have wish we could tell you yes. I'm not GonNa but we can't.

I was just what we can tackle last night. But Yeah it's so much fun talking to these women and you know you. Pour your soul out with the prompts. And then after like when you're hanging out you get to gossip and tell yourself each other funds stories you know. That was a fun way to end the night. Yes so tonight. After the dinner we are all going to go to a tiki room. We're GONNA do one more night out in Vegas and I'll just let you know what the last writing prompt was. So you're welcome to do this at home. If you can take the writing prompts you set a timer for twelve minutes and you will be surprised at what comes out. In twelve minutes everybody can write. Everybody can be a writer. Everybody you can get you know chapters from your book out of this thing so the third prompt was a time. I did not listen to my inner voice or my higher self or my conscience.

"Do didn't make sense. I think the marketing emphasis of a change more than the actual amenities there were so the. Mgm Grand Theme Park Went Away. That was a big one but we have a lot of stuff. There's still a lot going on for kids in Las Vegas. That we don't necessarily mark with what we don't show they. Don't show the waterpark NATO. But there's a lot there's a lot going on. It's not part of our marketing campaign. And when people gear they tend to be like. Wow there's a lot of stuff for I think that's a choice that was made for whatever the reason I mean. I don't. I'm not a researcher but I do know that To try to bend this city to say it's a family down didn't work it didn't work didn't quite ring true. It didn't it didn't feel it was an authentic. It's all about that now. Let's just be who we are? Let's say what we're going to say and be genuine whether it's in show business meaning whatever you doing. Well let's I have one more Thing I want to touch on how you? I'm a huge Beatles. Fan Thank you okay. And you were on stage with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr some years ago saying hey jude. Hollywood Bowl K. Wow let's just let's yeah. That's part of the quiz to how did that happen. When was it? What was the environment? Because it's so it's amazing when you tell the story it sounds like I just walked up there with Paula Ringa. That's not exactly Russia stage. I did not rush but more importantly it wasn't just me. It's super you know. Hi I'm always trying to be honest about this stuff so that doesn't exaggerate. It was a lot of entertainers now. We were all part of Earth Day and so there were different acts. We had Kenny loggins. Katie laying it was in the ninety S. ten thousand maniacs. Don Unleash was ninety. Three's on I think it was ninety. Three Steve Miller all these different bands. I was with a band. Called P M dawn and we were the babies of the group so we went I at the show. I started and You know like early in the afternoon. It's one of those all day things they used to do. They still do these. I mean I hear they do anything anymore. Dr Daisy Kern. What's that other one helps? Beautiful like that stuff. Okay anyway so what happened was being short when you're in a big massive crowd. It's easy to get sort of pushed and slush and so when Paul invited all of us. Paul McCartney was the Anchor Act and it was his thing and when he invited us all to come back on stage I got pushed to the front with P M Dawn. So that's how I ended up standing next to him and then Ringo. I don't even know where he came from but he came like on. My left and Paul was singing. The hey jude thing. And he I had talked to him for about fifteen minutes at soundcheck so I was still trying to recover from that conversation because he actually called me over and he said hello. Love how you dotted on and I'm just trying to be normal but inside them like Paul Gurney am he. He wanted to talk to me about our music. Because Paul's Kinda like Tony Bennett. Where he wants to know what's up now like what's current and He's not one of those well back in my day. Like he's always got his open for what's on and we were the thing that we you know current group so he was talking about that and he said that when the last time he had played the Hollywood. I wasn't born yet so I got all defensive and said yes I was and we got into this thing and he proved to me. I wasn't and it was just funny and cool. And then he said Yeah Sixteen. It was sixty sixty five played there in nineteen sixty five. I know it was. It was something about nine to sixty three. Because I know because I wasn't born yet so whatever he was talking about. 'cause we had a whole discussion about it. I said. Oh you're right. And he so long story way too long. Make it shorter. Is that at the end of the show. He called us all back. I ended up at the front and for some reason he just took my hand and when we got to the Non Anez and Ringo was over here talking about how. He didn't WanNa sing because he had just had dental surgery and wasn't feeling well. And I'm hearing them talking about that in front of all those owned wrinkled talking I can't sing. I had surgery in Paul's singing and he takes my hand in the other background singers ham. And he's like okay and this is all happening live at the Hollywood bowl and then he took my hand and then we started doing the nominees and then he left the Mike and went away and there was an open. Mike and I just started ad-libbing and then it turned into a thing. And that's how I ended up singing the wailing ad-lib St Jude with Paul. That's amazing. Wow Center the universe stuff. You're my hero all right well. Let's remind people where they can see you next three. Pm February February twenty third. It's a Sunday afternoon. Mirus cabaret jazz saying Cova Cosa.

We're under the second caution of the race came out for debris in the back straightaway at lap number one hundred and one also far. It's kind of lived up to its billing. All the drivers that we talked to in the team said this would be a much much better race than we saw the first time the guys came here because they they didn't really know the track that well and indeed it has panned out that we've seen some of the best racing. We've seen of the three this season. This has been a dandy race so far today and we'll hope it continues here is the teams all I'll have the fresh good years on and they're loaded up and ready to go for another segment before we get back to the green flag.

We tested earlier and and had a good test and just real excited to get going. The NASCAR CRAFTSMAN truck series tends to provide some rather exciting racing for folks that don't follow it every week you guys don't hold anything back. You lay defenders on each other. It really is kind of hard nose competition. Is it that way because of the way the trucks are designed or or is that just the way you guys race. I think it's just the way that they are a little both the way they're designed way. The race in Nascar's portrayed is a tough trucks and I'll tell you it is it's it's a door to door race in the have flat sides so they're a little bit more contact and we're known for a little more short track race than it is a really tough series the competition addition levels just has gotten so tough. You're were a rookie last season your first year driving for the rash team the biggest lesson you learned last year. That's prepared you to win this year. I think the biggest lesson is going to be that. We've been all the race tracks showing up every week to a new facility and not ever or getting a chance and now now we got one years notes on all the tracks and we'll be able to come back and and have a baseline to start with what we did last year and then be able to build on that.

Amona Goa comes back out and hangs onto the lead again. Jerry Mayfield comes out second bob in the body is third if they can get a couple of adjustments on Bobby's car. He's had a strong car but it's been pushing up a little bit with him coming out of turn number four and it just about every position he's lost. He's had it happened to him right up.

Go around the track here a couple of moments ago. Dale Jarrett was locked up in one of those heading over to turn three down. That's right. He's been dealing with Dale Earnhardt all afternoon. At least for the last fifty or sixty laps earnhardt has moved himself up to second spot right now of course he has yet to Pitt but he's doing it using less racetrack than anybody else. Now we're watching Mark Martin Dale Earnhardt. We heard from the EARNHARDT crew a couple of minutes ago that they plan to try and go the race on just one more stop which will probably come up in the next ten to twelve laps. Were so what about Mark Martin steamed. We think they can go the distance on just the one more stop after they pitted at lap one thirty two but some of the other front runners stayed out. Jim Phillips has been following up on that story for US Jim..

The field of forty three starters in today's Las Vegas four hundred for the Nascar Winston Cup series is on the Las Vegas Motor speedway beginning their pace in parade laps before the green flag in two hundred sixty seven laps four hundred mile event the third third race of the Nascar Winston Cup series for nineteen ninety nine motoracing network here to bring you live coverage glad that you join a son popping through what worse overcast skies earlier in the day they now beginning to Bay the hundred ten thousand fans gathering at the speedway and some beautiful weather conditions this afternoon and the cars come by the main grandstand for the first time on the pace laps. It's now setting their forty five mile. An hour speed behind the Chevrolet pace car what the fans out here are very very enthusiastic about Winston Cup racing yesterday when they were here for Bushkov race. We saw probably seventy five thousand turn out for that show yesterday afternoon. I think almost to a man and a woman and a child they all stayed until that checkered flag fell even stayed around and watch happy our practice as the cup cars go by right now. They're standing up and kind of waving to all their favorite drivers as they go here this afternoon. What two laps three laps be a total of three parade laps so they'll come by a couple more times before they get the green flag and get cut loose right. Now is the field works. Its way back into turn number one and two again on the pace. San Parade laps this Las Vegas Motor speedway a mile and a half around very very wide race track very smooth transitions from corner to straightaway both in terms of if the degree of banking and the radius turn. You never really have to pinch the car down very hard to get it into or out of the quarter. That's one of the reasons why the drivers like it so much is they've got a lot of running room and a lot of racetrack to work with steak swing around the race track now calling the voices who bring you the action from the turns today down and turns one and two for motor racing network. Today's Hampton Virginia is job. Thanks good afternoon everyone. I'm located on top of a billboard about fifty feet up in the air with a great view of turns one and two here at the Las Vegas Motor speedway as you mentioned it's flat and it's very wide the corners here at Las Vegas therefore premium on handling and it'll be easy to see from my position here as the race goes on WHO's handling and who's not those who are handling. We'll be right down at the bottom of the race track sticking. They're really getting a good bite off. Turn number to those not handling pushing up a little bit and therefore scrubbing off speed lead and falling back of course we'll see a lot of changes as a race goes on and tires go away and changes were made to the setups of the cars also here at turned number two the exit exit to the pit lane it parallels the racing surface and then empties back into the traffic lane about halfway down the back straightaway should be pretty exciting. We saw all the great moves here yesterday of the Nascar Busch series race the SAM's Sam's town three hundred. Probably we'll see a lot of that for you here today as well interns one to feel coming down the line one more lap and they will cut loose. Let's take a swing up three and four were Dan Hubbard. We'll cover the action for us this afternoon. Dan There's a lot of discussion of what part of California you're from. Where are you from Rent Cucamonga. It's also referred to as out Aloma. It's about ten minutes North North Fontana California speedway but thank you Bonnie and good afternoon everybody I'm on a rooftop about twenty feet in the air with an excellent view the backstretch and turns three and four even a good view of the Las Vegas Strip in the distance but a lot of gambling go on right here is the driver's reach speeds in excess of one hundred and eighty miles an hour down the backstretch. Then is a quick DAB at the brakes and a feathering of the gas pedal the cars negotiate the twelfth degree banking of turns three and four now.

"las vegas" Discussed on Classic Races
"Its place pretty much designed for great racing well. It's kind of like Talladega was built for speed. This race track doc was built for two and three wide racing. Dale Jarrett probably hit the nail right on the head there when you're talking to him you're open that they have a year under their belt. They have a race under their belt here plus. A lot of the guys is have run the Busch races on Saturday so they've got more experience than the rules have changed a little bit lot. More downforce on the cars should see a much much better race than we saw here last March last cheer one year ago this time we opened this broadcast talking about expecting one of the greatest races maybe in the modern history of NASCAR competition didn't turn out that way but we do expect much better competition. Titian much more intense afternoon here today over the next few hours. Today's another Winston Noble five race the top five finishers from the Daytona five hundred can claim a million dollar bonus with a win and and most of those five drivers qualified well that on top of a three million dollar purse for this event. There's a lot at stake over the next few hours. Really is five drivers with a shot for an extra bonus us of a million dollars that alone is going to create a lot more competition out. There and there are some teams that want to get their season turned around haven't had that much look at Daytona that run date bad. They've got caught up an accident and some have just run that bad ed but here yesterday or I should say Friday and yesterday qualifying was so close on Friday. Twenty two drivers broke the track record and we probably have about as closer qualifying flying field. Here's we've seen so all the ingredients there to have a great day drivers beginning to be introduced to the crowd now on the pre-race stage down of the start finish line and the trial will area of the speedway speedway weather conditions. It's a little chilly today. It's not quite sixty degrees quite yet just about to hit sixty sixty one the high temperature for the afternoon some high clouds clouds obscuring the sun just a little bit a little breezy on the afternoon overall though not bad conditions and certainly a dry track and we'll be ready to go racing on time in this afternoon's. Las Vegas four hundred back at the Las Vegas Motor speedway time to go track side and get the thoughts of some of the drivers before they strap in and get ready to go in on this afternoon's Nascar Winston Cup series event the man who lead them to the green flag today is Bobbi Body Fourteenth Career Bud Pole award. He took in qualifying here on Friday afternoon had two wins in the one thousand nine hundred eight season tested here back in January getting ready for this event hoping for much better results than he got one year ago in the inaugural event. Let's go here from bobby the body now he's with Jim Phillips of Newport Tennessee. Save the best for last on Friday afternoon one hundred seven point six four three miles per hour. was there a greater eight or difference in the field of the cars this year yeah. I mean there. There is pretty good feel to it. You know the track is getting definitely more abrasive and the tires are giving up more so the sticker tires are really really important but you know you know as the race goes on at the you know the spoilers will help out and you know our our cars worked really good for qualifying and we worked on this morning trying to get a little bit better for their age who aren't quite as happy as we wanted to be yesterday afternoon. So hopefully we made the right decision. Hopefully be really good today. Your car's Pontiac some cars yesterday and look like in the Bush could really get up behind somebody that kind of push you. WanNa push up the racetrack. How about your car's in the draft. Yeah it's GonNa have little Aero. Push probably to do it so we're going to have to watch out for that. You know make sure get free enough but not too free so you know it's it does have that Tennessee to do that and I think most cars do hopefully ours is no worse than anybody else's so. We're just GONNA try to work on ours to make sure that we don't have that problem jar front we can stay there. That'd be great but you know it's GonNa be tough to do that. Baba the body the but poll water order one hundred seventy point six four three miles per hour. Michael Waltrip had quite an afternoon here on Friday. He held a number one starting spot right down to the last three qualifiers but in the the end had to settle for the outside pole position today. He's one of five drivers eligible for a million dollar bonus from Winston if he wins just two races this year. This team has proven they can run up front. Kenny wind today. Let's find out what's IT Kelly is with him well. He was a little bit disappointed on Friday afternoon with the prize he's really looking for. Is that Winston no bull million Michael Michael. Can you take it home today well. There's you know Simul story. There's guys that are really strong the six and the ninety nine or just awesome like they are ever week so we we feel like we're running really good. You know we're going to be competitive but to win the race. You know it's it's going to. It's going to take a lot of a lot of improvements from various afternoon afternoon. We didn't quite have it the way we wanted. The has been all over the board for everybody some loose some tight very few. That's hit it on the money. Has Your car been. It does just what you said you know you come in and complain about about being a little loose and work on it and you go out and it'll push. It just seems like I haven't been able to hit it just right yet. I've been on one side or the other and a lot of guys are saying the same thing. This track lends itself. South to that though it's it's really flat and sweeping so it's real hard to get a car set up perfectly and the the ninety nine looked like yesterday afternoon he was the benchmark that you had to. Kinda engage yourself against and he was a little bit better with a million extra reasons to go to Victory Lane Michael Waltrip Rozov second in the Philip Chevrolet. Mike Skinner comes into this event leading the Nascar Winston Cup series championship standings by twenty nine points over Rusty Wallace after finishes of fourth at Daytona and six at Rockingham to open the ninety nine season skinner another of the drivers with a shot of the Winston Noble five million dollar bonus today and tell you what this team has been consistent and consistently upfront so far this ninety nine in season there believing in themselves they believe they're going to be winning contenders as far as races all season long. They believe they're going to finish up there. In the championship standings by the time the end of the year comes as well also so let's get Mike skinner's thoughts today starting in Fifth Position Charlotte North Carolina's Mardi Snyder's with him and it's been a terrific start to the season for my skin and you come to attract today. Mike just like Japan pan where you win last November same car almost the same setup but can you get the same result well. I don't know you know at six car looks off. Strong in the twenty. Four is always strong. There's about five or six cars that are that are pretty awesome are low. Chevrolet was awfully good. Yesterday morning. We struggled a little bit and happy hour. Larry and Royce in the guise of made a spring bring change on the car this morning so it'll be a hero or zero move but we knew we wasn't good enough to have a chance yesterday afternoon so we're digging. We're doing the best cam career in the week though you were awfully confident you didn't want to jinx yourself. You felt like this could be your best chance to win a point trace. DFL's still feel the same way. Perhaps yeah you know like I said. There's a couple cars. That are awfully strong but it's a long race. It's four hundred miles and you got to be there at the end and we'll fall in there somewhere and do the best we can throughout the day and if we get a lucky he shot right there at the end. Maybe we can get up there and get one. That is the points leader going. After a million bucks. We'll start fifth today. More pre race coverage from Las Vegas in just a minute closing housing in the start of the Las Vegas four hundred back at the Las Vegas Motor speedway counting down to the start of today's Las Vegas four hundred for the Nascar Winston Cup series. We mentioned a minute ago. The command to fire fire engines should have been coming along now but it's going to be a couple of minutes while they get some of the final fantasy from the parking lots to their grandstand seats in get the event underway so all we way. Let's go backtrack attract side. Here's Jim Phillips with Kiro starting today this year. It looks like there's a little little more patients kidneys ethic as you've been talking to Doug richer lot well. We just learned a lot the first year and brought back what we had in the in the truck series a ninety seven so he's been definitely a big help to me. Tell me about this race track and today you starting tenth. Could you stay in the top five today. We feel like we can't we had a good happy. Hour track seems to be about the same as yesterday. The weather's good we're. That's what we're hoping for a top five. That's getting urban last year's rookie of the year Nascar Winston Cup racing check listen Kelly with Rick Mast and some of the best garage. Jerry stories are about the EGRESS plans are getting out of race tracks but rick mast. You had a bit of a challenge this morning just getting into the race track listen. I'll be glad when this race starts. Carson nerves and get settled down man. I'm I nervous so Taupe my life. I I got my car. You'll be a good boy. Leave at six o'clock. Got In the car wouldn't start right. Finally I got somebody to jump me. At seven twenty. I got and I got the thing running got up on the interstate. I want about a mile and a half come to did stop you. GotTa realize that's probably twenty miles racetrack as it oh Lord I got off the interstate got on Las Vegas. Boulevard did stop right well. This thing works at an at traffic for while found that ended up I it's it's a pretty neat story. I don't know exactly where all was. Ah Suffice to say one time I was in desert didn't have didn't have any idea which way it was because it was cloudy. I couldn't see where the sun was out. which way was east and West got off the desert? Uh Niagara back through this stuff somewhere and you're gonNA miss the drivers. I wouldn't worry about drivers musical miss a Dagenham race. Finally you know when I went through. I went through a couple the people's front yards. I went through somebody's Bush's rector. I don't think I took offence Donna. Thanks Rick Mass.. Is this shrubs and then you know I couldn't and found a copper law. Enforcement got to help me 'cause I were there. They were trying to get the traffic themselves and finally this goes on for a couple of hours man and I'm like you know drivers ars meetings nine thirty and eleven thirty and I'm still like thirty minutes from or is like what was it nine o'clock you know and I try track and I'll see them doug him. Helicopters going rebounds four. That's where I need to be. Finally down in. Somebody's ditch spending in Kate find placement anywhere all of a sudden look here placement comes flying and through this other yard right comes up side like going to restaurants in old lore. Now you're GONNA make rice and we'll get arrested. Then he comes up to me gets his finger face. You don't if they don't they just just settle down on. Just settle down. Let me tell you a story. I tell him a story. He says okay. We're GONNA help you rick so he gets on the radio about fifteen minutes to seize part. They get me in the left left. Lane motorcycle trooper comes and gets me here we go down the left side lane nail on the opposing traffic right with the truth of the trooper in front of me with the motorcycle and I'm running will. I'm not sure how fast are running but buses run. An offroad cars run off the road. I look one time and I'm a seeding the speed limit a little bit run off the side of the road. It Costs Brennan Miss.. A bus pulled over to let us through and I'm thinking but finally we get here to the race track and funny part the trooper brings married in the race track and when he does US Rick Race car driver all thought she's going draft with me. Samana ahead to thing wide open. It would go any faster this this just going back. Maybe lows how come in the garage area here and I'm just now starting to get control back and you did make the drivers me. I did make the drivers meeting. I was out of breath and everybody was laughing at me but I have my motor home here next year. Believe me well Rick Mast. He'll roll off in the Kale Jabre own car. A little bit further back actually had a pretty good qualifying run in twenty-second. He's been in every race and that's been key for this team as they've kind of resurrected themselves. I think you'll have that much trouble getting up front and leading this race through all that traffic to get in here from the sounds of it no problem at all for Rick. Let's go back to Marty. Schneider Jeff Gordon Starts Eleven today since eleventh in points after the troubles at Rockingham two weeks ago. Do you feel like you have a little bit of a hold a climate of Jeff a little bit yeah. you know we had some momentum come from Daytona and you know the little bit that got stopped Rockingham but we're still only two races into the season. It's a long season but it really has to come through consistency. If you're going to win the championship and that wasn't the way to do it but think we've got a problem album solved and we're ready to go back to racing seventeenth here last year and this was a point of emphasis in the off season for you guys to focus on. Las Vegas was that one of the reasons to run the NASCAR BUSCH series race yeah. That was one of them. You know we're able to test the Bush car and get some data that we could transfer over to the Winston Cup car and I feel like it's helped us a a little bit yeah. We didn't qualify as well here today as we did last year but I think a race setup is a little bit better plus a spoiler near Damn having more of that is helping the chevrolets charlize it a little bit more also was a little bit of a disappointing last year here for Las Vegas Las Vegas for Jeff Gordon finished seventeenth.
