"His special paint scheme is based on these star nursery Chevy the keep drove to his first NASCAR title that was twenty years ago in the NASCAR southwest series. Which takes us to my home track is Kurt Busch. Returns home for the weekend. Look at him one of the places where Kurt race during his time on the southwest tour. The bowl ring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Short-track oval part of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway complex which hosts NASCAR this weekend of force weekly NASCAR racing at the bullring gets underway in just nine days. So there's always the season's around the seasons. You know, all the grassroots racing really getting excited for their seasons to start. So. We're going to talk about what we're going to see at Las Vegas. And really, it's I mean, I know last week it was all right new package Atlanta. So why is it such a big deal we've seen the package before? But you guys talked about this a whole different type of mile and a half track. It is totally different half. And this is the full innovation of the new twenty nine thousand nine package. So it has the drag ducks and has a different panel. That has the large spoiler the large splitter and five hundred fifty horsepower in the hope here like we saw testing and throw this gender. We actually had this show you that there's the largest weather. Okay. Split going on and this is on xfinity carbon essentially the same thing. And then this is where the ducks go. No, maybe break ducks there. These are now dragged up they foresee are out to the side create a bigger hole in the air. So the car behind maybe gets a bigger draft. That's the whole intention of these drag ducks, and what we've seen is that they do create a little bit of that. Like we saw the testing here back in January get three four wide guys using the draft there in the throttle. And this is what we're hoping to see this is what I expect on the restarts. And the reason I. Hey, this is because at Atlanta attract that's worn out and multiple grooved. We I personally could go five six maybe eight positions forward on a restart, and then being a pack of cars three and four wide. And then slowly we'd shift back to where he kinda were speed-wise over the long run. But it was really interesting how he could use the draft of drag ducts to move through and really use have multiple lanes available. So if the temperatures right I think we could see that kind of racing this weekend throughout the race. And I think that's really interesting. It's possible fans. We we all hope for an entertaining race for their side by side. I still think it just completely comes down to restart. No matter what aero package you have no matter what type of racecar. It's all forms of racing clean air clean air. And if you get clean air, you're gonna handle better. So we're gonna see restarts. That are going to be really insane. Because every driver knows that if they can gain five or six on a restart that's just going to put them in a faster. Pack of cars in to me. It really depends on the group widens out, and that's really gonna depend on if the cars side by side. But if you get it where if the temperatures are cool, and they can run wide open at a consistent pace and never really have to get off the throttle. Then I still think we're gonna get single file at times. And yet your car's fashion, you still might be able to make a move here or there, but it Lanta the biggest thing was tires went away. And at times we heard it in car they had to get out of the throttle. They had to move around and still carry the momentum at beg at their wide. Open still though, well, we're gonna fight you're going to be on the race track..

"And he said feels great, you know, but people like hinder, you know, they start off really slow, and they kind of low people into it. And then they start cheating. And you know, that's kind of funny because he gets his Motors from them. So it's probably not best to talk bad about the. Yeah, he's going to be down fifty plus horsepower. Right. Plus every motor will blow in the in the planes, new batch of engines, K L, they look good. They got Dell dinner mayonnaise coming around. They're all Greece. Dump real nice like building a lube. He's up for you. All the best helman's. That's right for our engines. Yeah. So that was interesting. So a few hours after that. He immediately went to Twitter posted the iphone note that was very long basically saying he didn't mean to do that too. Didn't mean to use those words in mean, they actual cheaters they just find innovative ways of coming on strong as the season goes along. I miss iphone notes. I went Android awhile back, and there's nothing out there, like just note, Pat, and I used it a lot should I switch just for the no pad again. I mean, I think you should switch back. Anyway. I don't know why you left I like the phone. That's good. But it does miss having my messages with you. What's wrong with texting? It's just not the same your bubbles, blue or green. And what who cares what color? You know, I had a friend who actually complained about that to me not you either someone else like so I would have known. It was me. I was the point. This is the first I'm hearing that you're angry about it. So I'm not really angry about it. But yeah, you sound angry. All right. The west coast wing begins this weekend from Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Then it's on undefeated ISM raceway and wraps up out there in Fontana California auto club speedway three very different racetracks coming in at one point five miles than one mile and finally two miles respectively. So should be interesting to see you know, I thought the new aero package the season began in Atlanta. But no, no scratch that everybody. Now says it starts this weekend at a Las Vegas. So I'm sure when things go awry, it'll be Phoenix. Because that you know that somehow a short-track now, which I've never understood. So anyway, that's what you have to look forward to in the coming weeks, you listener people just a bunch of excuses. Yes. Every week. It's going to be now. No it starts. Now. No starts at Indianapolis to be honest to be totally wanted percents. Yep. The land package was not the full package. Okay. So instead of the aero ducts they had break decks, which will change the way the air hits the cars and things and how they can suck up on each other in the draft. Secondly, Atlanta has a very abrasive surface. So only the best teams would really have a really good long run car, still, right? Even the competition is closer the really high budgeted teams would be the ones that would have the the handling package will be able to take care of that. So I really do think we will say closer racist week in bagasse and is not just because I'm saying that like NASCAR. And we want this to do well because the show gets ratings when NASCAR does. Well, I really think we will see a closer race this week. Now, will it be what we want it to be. I don't know. But if the crowd, by the way, it was pretty decent Atlanta. So that was good. I was glad to see that. It was in Atlanta's been a very bad looking crowd last you season. So that that is very encouraging. I have heard that the spoiler isn't is going to go up to ten feet at Vegas. Ten feet. of spoiler. Wow. Better hope that it doesn't like drag the catch fence turns. Yeah. Well, that's one of the problems. They're addressing might even take out. You know, the the cable camera that they have their ninety middle. See when Mike helton's pulling them over on pit road. That's well half of its clear. So right. So he's got five foot of spoiler. They are lightning McQueen like anyway..

"Welcome to NASCAR NBC podcast. I'm your host Nate Ryan. This is part two of our conversation with Jeff Burton on the state of NASCAR in two thousand nineteen hopefully already heard part one. If you didn't go back and listen right now, lots of good feedback for the mayor's thoughts on many things and that continues here in part two. We talk NASCAR economics salary caps and the conundrum of using rules to save money. We also talk about the two thousand nineteen rules package with lower horsepower. And why Jeff thanks it could work and also how he'll know if it doesn't work and we also talk about short tracks and the twenty twenty schedule ambient, two important caveats. Here we tape this a few weeks ago. And that was before this week's big announcement that NASCAR will conduct post race inspection at track and strip winds from drivers this year. I know Jeff has. Many thoughts on that. And maybe I'll see if he graciously will return to discuss that when the inevitable disqualification controversy happens later this year. And also this is recorded before the recent test of the new rules at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, though. I think that's less noticeable because Jeffs analysis is pressure as always, and he actually intimidated some of what drivers and teams would say at that test. So let's get right to it. We'll kick it off. With Jeff's thoughts on the financial state of NASCAR in twenty nineteen there. We talked a little bit about NASCAR being entrance tuition. And obviously a big theme from twenty eighteen and going into twenty nineteen is how it's finding its footing financially both from team business model perspective and the perspective of this new structure of sponsorship that nascar's talking about title sponsor, essentially changing into a multi tiered thing that involved tracks and teams UC Jeff with.

"We ask you the same question talking solutions. What can we do to help you? I think I spiritual charities one. We're looking for volunteers because we do a number of it. We're looking for people who want to participate in a number of the events that we put on because that is our mechanism for raising funds. Certainly we accept grants if somebody wants to give us a grant, but we want people to be able to enjoy an experience while they're making a contribution to the charity and a number of the things we do can even be health related. We have a PJ five K. I didn't even mentioned that earlier where you know. We've got the Santa Ryan you got all these different time hours the PJ five K each usually done either right before thanksgiving right after thanksgiving. You actually go through the glittering lights in your pajamas. I like that. And you can either do the five K you can do the one mile walk through there. So you can actually come out feel like you get a little bit healthy on a Sunday afternoon and get to check out the lights in your pajamas on top of everything else. And so I can roll out of bed and go to this. Well, you can roll out of bed. If you get up at two o'clock. In the afternoon. That's fine. With me if it's my day off in the morning show. I'd love.

"Or maybe it's the goody two shoes foundation or maybe it's Special Olympics. I mean, they run a wide range, but they still all benefit children here in the community. And that's the whole goal thus. The name of the charity speedway chillers. That's why it's such a perfect fit with Amy's baby buzz. Can't you see why we were so excited to have the Motor Speedway behind this because they themselves are so great being local and being charitable and with our veterans and the country music Tien, and it just seems so perfect, and Jeff I don't know if you knew this, but our baby boss is an RV familiar with that show Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And here's the really cool thing is that the promotion we're going to present it during the pre race on the stage before NASCAR race on Sunday. We're going to have the baby bus up there. Amy is going to be there. And it's all about the children. It's all about Las Vegas veterans village and our veterans right here in Vegas this money as you said is they in right here in Vegas. These goods are staying right here in Vegas. That's what a live and local country music station and a live and local speedway can do is one of the great things about what we're seeing here it probably over the last ten years, and I know everybody is probably gonna say over the last year and a half the way that we're really becoming a real city does for so many years. It was just everybody from everywhere. And I think we've really seen. I mean, obviously we've had tragedy. Brought us together we've had a hockey team. That's brought us together. But I think all of those things are making us a much more closer knit community, which is really getting people more involved in wanting to help out with all kinds of different causes. And I think this is one that's going to be at the top of the list where the timing for this is so perfect with Amy's baby. On the way with the next NASCAR race coming up. What first weekend of March? Yes. I mean, she could go early and we can have a race baby. Making that Joe. And I don't know. I mean, I feel like that season tickets if you give birth at the speedway is she gives birth at the speedway I will guarantee her she's got tickets as long as I'm there. Awesome. That's what I love the most about the speedway is. It's a family affair every time. I've been out there. It's not what you think. If you're listening right now, I'm not a NASCAR fan, you haven't been obviously. Because before I went to my first race. I could care less about cars. I could care less about racing to be honest. I feel like a lot of people like me when you go out there for the first time, see the environment. Get some hotdog some beer bring the family bring some friends. I mean, I brought some twenty something year olds along with me. And it's a party out there. I like to compare it to hockey, and God knows we know all about hockey, you're in this. Two years. Ago. And I think there's a whole lot of people who until you go when you see it live. You don't truly appreciate the speed of the sport. And I think the same way with hockey how fast they shoot the puck. How fast those guys go from one end of the ice of the other. It's the same way with racing. You can watch it on TV, and that's fine. But when you see forty race cars going down into turn one at one hundred ninety five miles per hour nose to nose and bumper to bumper that opens your eyes, and it's a rush of your senses. If you will absolutely on how cool is it? The first time they're in front of the neon garage. And all of those windows looking into where the crews are working on cars right there. Right. And that's one of the great things about our speedway and a number of other speedways to is the proximity that the fans can get to the stars of our sport in the drivers is almost second to none. And to have that interaction in like, you can get an autograph through one of the flaps in the windows of the garage. We have drivers to make appearances whether it's on the stage in the garage new QNA's with fans whether they're doing something on pit road. There's so much of that going on and you don't find that in all sports now, I will come. Mend our team here in town. They do some fantastic things in the community where the players have been very accessible to a lot of our fans the way they opened their practices, and I think they do terrific job as well.
