Now rebecca. tell me why. You're doing pajamas for foster kids would. What's the significance. I just kind of started digging. I started talking to foster families. I talked to your child protective services at talked a lot of case managers social workers like what is something that we could do to bring comfort to the kids that they serve on the front lines and time and time again. The answer was these kids really need pajamas. And i love pajamas. Like when i was a kid my parents would always give us. Jim is at christmas. Like a who. Doesn't love brand new pajamas. And so i said you know. Let's let's try it and I approached my small group at church and as for christmas. We always give each other again. Why don't we give back to the foster community. Would anybody be interested in doing that. And they all agreed and before long. It kind of just bled like it was like this group wanted to do it and the next group to do it and in that i kind of drive that we hosted We collect a two hundred twenty three pairs of pajamas. And i was like this is going to work and people see the need When it's kind of explain to them and they jump into action very quickly and so pajamas an easy way to make a big impact. And that's what we want to offer. People is one the opportunity to learn about the journey of these kids To hear about the journey in everyday life of social workers and case managers and understand foster family pressures and then three take action. How can you be a part of what we're doing and people just jump in like our community is so generous. It's beautiful rebecca. Black is the founder and ceo of jambos rebecca. What's the most important thing that you've learned about kids in the foster system as you've been working with jambos. I think that's something that we're really passionate about bringing awareness to is that The kids that are going into the foster care system. Oftentimes that transition is very abrupt. So children are leaving an unsafe living environment And they are being placed into a foster home and that that time between point a. m. point be is very uncertain Oftentimes it's It's abrupt We i would imagine it to be very anxious Child is going from something that may be seemingly normal to them and abruptly moved into a strangers home for lack of better words and they're taking very few of their own belongings with them. So it's if you can kind of imagine like your child is just being sweeped from school or maybe. They're being entertained from their home. But it's like grab what you can and let's get out the door and so often times. Kids are arriving to their foster families with get one. We have one story of a family who received a child on their doorstep and ali brought was a bicycle. And you know great. We're glad he goes to bring his bike. But what about some practical resources to help get that child through the night And so it's our heart to just really bring comfort to that journey that little window there where kids are kind of looking around thinking. Where am i going. I don't have any of my stuff. and so on. So it's are it's just it's why we exist is to is to bring comfort to that to that blow right there to that specific moment where they walk into a stranger's house in everything's new. Everything's different but they could have a set pajamas with their favorite character on them right. And it's it's really neat because We've had stories of you know young kids. Arriving into their foster homes and a girl my board her child arrived with a onesie. And that's all there was no diaper. There was no bottle. There was no pajamas. there was there. Were no resources like in that moment. Now i think that you know the heart of of this whole mission. That foster parents are set up for success. But we're talking about that moment. You know the foster families do get the chance to go and do a little shopping and get settled. But the in those moments of absolute like kind of chaos. It's like well. Let's give case manager social workers. Let's give them product to help along the way. That transitional moment it's really really imperative. Rebecca black is the founder and ceo of jambos.

Don't Look At The Wall
"The original cars movie released in two thousand six which was also the year. Our Son was born at the time. Our girls were toddlers and I had three young nephews so we watched a lot of cars the cartoon version. This is what I'm saying with mater and DOC Hudson and radiator springs and of course lightning McQueen that all the kids called lightning the queen because of course they did about a month ago John and Lugar Son and I watched that movie and I guess I haven't seen it in a decade or so because every single song took me back to win. The kids were tiny and nobody slept through the night and it felt like. I was making chicken nuggets and applesauce for every lunch and dinner. Probably because I was my days of watching cartoon cars may have passed. But I'm still happy to listen to the sage advice of one real life race car. Driver named Mario Andretti who has been famously quoted over the years as having given some excellent racing advice that also seems to apply to life. He said don't look at the wall. Your car goes where your eyes go I. I saw this quote after about a week long bout of wrestling with some questions in discouragement. In my work yes. Y'All hi. It's me. Emily talking about my work. Mindset again seriously though. The simple racing advice really stuck with me during a week where I was questioning everything from the decor of my Home Office where I was literally looking at the walls to a more metaphorical wall gazing as I questioned the direction of my work at the time. This was actually just a few months ago. This happens every now and then for me sometimes on a more extreme level than normal. But I'll share. This particular season of looking at the wall has looked like for me. Now I would Mario Andretti said. Don't look at the wall. He said in the obviously of racing. Because your car goes where your eyes go of course if we want to more. Broadly apply that clever statement to life. The Wall could represent any number of things options. Distractions trouble you name it. I'm not saying we're never to consider our options to change course to be aware of obstacles or trouble that might come up as we make our decisions about our life and our work. Hello this is episode. One seventeen of an entire podcast about making decisions and I'm constantly. I feel like talking about perspectives weighing the options and seeing all sides of things. Of course that's important but I will say sometimes we can get so busy looking at the wall that we spend all our time there and we forget where we're actually going and why were on the road in the first place like the mom who's so worried about all the things that could go wrong when her baby goes off to kindergarten or starts driving a car or goes off to college that she forgets to be a person to take a walk to eat good food and laugh at the table and enjoy each parenting stage as it comes or like the employees who desperately wants to impress her boss or outperform. Her Co workers that she loses all joy in the work. She was once excited to show up for every single day or like the writer who becomes overwhelmed by what other writers are doing. And how they're doing it that she doesn't make the time to actually write the words that make her come alive. That will serve a reader. Well an usher light and hope into the world around her like the citizen whose so completely frustrated with the state of the world of politics that she feels powerless toward any change at all rather than seeing the small things that are hers to do and using her unique voice to make way for justice in her church her neighborhood and her city and like me. I feel like I've said this before but keep learning it on different levels so I'm gonNA share just a little bit of my own wall gazing story with you now and maybe by the end of it you'll consider yours for years years. It's all you. I have felt out of place in the stage culture. That many in my industries seem to inhabit so comfortably. Listen I don't even know if that's the right way to say that. But please forgive my lack of Separating over the perfect description right now I've got a point to make. It's not that I think it's wrong. To stand on. Stage is for real. It's so needed it's important. It is a unique calling that I respect. I just don't think it's my unique calling at least not fully and becoming more and more convinced that speaking to giant crowds from a large stage doesn't seem like the place where my most valuable contribution is offered. And this might seem like not big deal to you but for me. This has always been tension that I've held. The question has been for me. What does it look like to be an author who doesn't travel and speak on stages? This question is valid and it's important but if I let it it can become my own version of looking at the wall because instead of looking at what my work is I slowly begin to define it by what it isn't and eventually becomes a heavy burden to bear. Your car goes where your eyes go in so for the past several years. I've been learning. What does it look like to keep my eyes on the road and I've been living into the answer granted years ago at I? It honestly looked like saying yes to lots of travel and to speaking and never feeling fully like myself in that and after that it felt like saying no to most of the speaking but then kind of wondering if I was doing it wrong. I'll be honest these days. It looks like a few different things. For example it looks like hope. Writers is still does look like that serving writers online from the comfort of my own home leading in the ways that I know how stumbling through it doing it well sometimes in being really excited and then not doing it so well other times and learning as I go it also looks like saying yes when my friend tissue box and writer invited me to Co lead literary London with her one of my favorite trips ever this year. GonNa take our third group this summer to that trip which is currently full by the way next year. It's GonNa look like being a lecturer for the masters in Spiritual Formation Residency Program at Friends University. By the way if you want to hear more about that you can listen to episode one hundred where I tell the whole story and this week as this episode airs. I'm in southern California. Quietly CO leading twenty-eight hope writers through a year long mastermind cohort that we've designed especially specifically for them so I give those examples not really to tell you what I'm up to lately but just to offer some embodied real life versions of what this has looked like for me in my work to quit looking at the wall and instead keep my eyes on the road already. Don't look at. The Wall is becoming for me. A kind next right thing. Mantra and remember Mario's advice was about racing. Assuming you're travelling at fast speed and if there was ever a metaphor for the pace of our lives right now maybe a race car comes pretty close. You keep your eyes on your intended path if you want this to go well. It might be tempting to catalog all that could go wrong or all. That is wrong but it's more dangerous actually to look at the wall than it is to simply keep your eyes on the road and so this quote found me right on time at the end of last year and I'm so grateful for it. Maybe it's finding you today at the right time as well. If you're having one of those days weeks months or let's face it decades. What would it look like for you to make like a race car driver and keep your eyes on the road? What are the walls in your own work right now? What about in your relationships are their walls in the places where you volunteer where you give your time or your money. What are the walls you're facing today? Are you able to name them? Are you willing to turn your eyes of from them and focus on the road ahead? This is your invitation to stop looking at that wall and simply do your next right thing in love.

"Shelby in the Ford versus foreign movie. He went on a lap with Mario Andretti at the Indy five hundred in the two seater formula, car that IndyCar blah, blah, blah. And I was like, oh, yeah, I did that for the Indy, five hundred a couple years ago. And when I walked up to the car there, like what helmet size are you? And I was like, I don't know I have a helmet at home, but I don't know what size it isn't. He's like, oh, I wonder we have one fit, and I'm like, I don't know feel like we work this out an Email months ago. Like there could have been some discussion on gimme your helmets is not true. You would think. It would be an exact exacting requirement. Not not like close enough getting the cargo in two hundred. Yeah, I could've looked inside one of my helmets and found the tag that said what size it was. But I just feel like information is kept kind of weirdly in close to the vest came here. What we're talking about. The umbilical cord they -bility do it to dozen times daily. There's not some STAN, there's not some when you go to the public PU there's a list of seven things that you can and can't do, but in the in the delivery room, there's not just a standard is like, hey, careful before you grab them, scissors, make sure you get it in the sweet spot. If we go up too high, you're gonna have an Audi and you're going to be the playing. Well, the thing they don't tell you is, you're not cutting them Bill cord, as, you know, it, you're cutting it in a ceremonial Fash, and five feet to the other side of the bed, and some sort of ribbon cutting ceremony like, sort of, like, you know, the mayor in the GM of the new plant earn a three piece suit turning over soil, and then the hand shoveled Mexican. Work, and they kind of stretch it out for you. They hold it from both sides kind of weird. But so when they say to you, they go do you wanna cut the umbilical cord? I know I don't want to be involved with the process. You know, everyone does it you know, and I don't wanna do it, and they go you're going to be love you argue with the doctors and nurses. I'm not doing a lot of it. But everyone paying you to do if they said, do you want to do it after two already initially been cut in a sort of ceremonial gesture, that's not you're not involved with the process, I still by the way would have said. No, because had nothing to do with anything, but I I kept saying. No because I don't want to be involved with the procedure because, of course that's out was playing out my head. I didn't know the ceremonial version of it. And I always wonder why more people, especially when it comes to things like that. I'm not a blues singer. I don't have sixty six kids. This is my first rodeo. How about you fucking? Tell me you're not going to be involved. You know what I'm saying? No, that's, that's a great point. But I was asking about the nets. So there's that. And then this leads me to the other event from last week. I don't know if you should cut it down. I agree with you. Maybe it's cool. It's like it's a fun kind of moment with a bit of celebration. I agree. And then someone gets to put it around their neck. Yeah. Whoever the lucky guy who like, I don't know what the what rules, they are that, like I get the part, that's still connected and I'm gonna ride as my necklace and let you know otherwise but you saw last week. Did you see the woman ceremonial first pitch, you know, and she's route into the cameraman and it was awful.

ESPN's 'Qualified' Highlights Boundary-Breaking Race Car Driver Janet Guthrie
"Return our attention to the world of motor sports, which has the rare distinction as being one of the sports where men and women are sensually on a level playing field in that body strength and physical speed take a back seat to focus precision and skill and yet women have struggled to break through at the highest levels of motor sports. That is the topic of the latest thirty for thirty film. It's called qualified. It used to be and women can't do it. They don't have the strength. They don't have the endurance. They're gonna endanger lives. You don't hear that anymore. What you do. Here is they're never gonna win. Then believe me if I didn't think I could win I would quit. But I do think I can win for four year stretch starting in nineteen seventy seven Janet Guthrie attempted to accomplish where women had never done qualify for and win the world's most famous race. The Indianapolis five hundred unsurprisingly she faced a ton of resistance, we'll five or six other rookies year. And she gets all attention, and they don't get nothing. Do you think she'll be able to last six hundred mile? No. No. What was surprising to the establishment was how good of a research at Guthrie actually what's despite inferior equipment funding that paled in comparison to some of the other teams and open hostility from her male competitors. Guthrie not only qualified, but earned a top ten finish in nineteen seventy within two years. She finished ahead. Mario andretti. The lady can literally with one hand tied behind her back with them in. On today's episode. Look at Janet Guthrie struggles her achievements her determination and how her career suddenly stalled out the director of qualified generic, and her producer, Carolina Waterlo will join me in a moment. But first, it is my pleasure. To say Hello to the legend herself Janet Guthrie, welcome to the thirty for thirty podcasts. And congratulations on this film will thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. So I want to get into the film when your career, but I was wondering if you could just describe what it's like to drive an IndyCar. Well, there's nothing that I know of that require is such focus without a lapse for such a long time, because you can't afford to make small mistakes, because small mistakes have shot at turning into unseemly mishaps. You're trying to beat the next guy end of the corner, but you're not going to put him in the wall. In order to do it. Hang on. John is still doing quite well second, Indianapolis five hundred AJ just one place in front of. Treaded guthrie. So it's a very interesting combination of competition. And yet, you're responsible for the well being of the person you're competing against. I don't know anything like it really. Anything can happen. One of the things I learned from the film that you grew up. You learn how to fly you parachuted. But in your answer, just then you didn't say anything along the lines of. Well, I am a thrill seeker. And I really liked going fast or something like that. I mean so where does that fit into to the appeal? Well, I guess I was born at venturous and grew up in sufficiently socialized of flying was great fun. What of the elements is that this wonderful machinery, the airplanes the race carries in able women to compete right out there, the level of human ability, because the broad shoulders and big muscles, don't count. That's part of the appeal finding out what it's like out there the limits of human capability, so this may be naive question. But why was it so hard to make that case throughout the seventies that this isn't about physical broad shoulders in the way that you just described this is about folk? This and all the things that aren't sort of inherently different between men and women. Oh, mythology. I'm afraid actually I had been racing sports car is for women had always participated. I'd been doing that kind of thing for thirteen years. And I could count the problems on the fingers of one hand that had anything to do with my being a woman, it just really wasn't an issue. So to come in to the top levels of racing and this country IndyCar racing and NASCAR Cup racing. And discover the not everybody thought that way was a quite as apprise actually when you were trying to break in. Did you get a sense that there was sort of actual misogyny at place, or was it more just like we have an old boys club here? We like our little network, and now trying to crash the party. Well, unfortunately, what was being said, was along. The lines of women did have strength women don't have the endurance. Women don't. Ev the emotional stability, Iman are going to endanger our lives times. It made made a mad mostly. I could laugh at it because I figured they would learn better and indeed, for the most part that did happen when you first started breaking in, and particularly when you got to Indy cars, your first few races, it felt like not just all eyes on you, but also testing you, you know what I mean? People were pretty explicit about this is your one chance. And if you screw it up, then you're not going to get a second chance. Well, I knew if a screwed up that it would be a long time. If for a woman got another chance. Yes. I did have to be a little extra cautious those first few races. So that not only did I give the fast or. Cars in a room. I gave them so much room that there wasn't going to be a doubt in their mind. And then as time went on, of course, I could home in on that a little more. But you look for hence. Coming up on the smart car. Chris allowed to make any mistakes day with lower Parador faster cars. Yeah. Given them all over the world. You bet. We'll hear lots more from Janika three in a bit. But now let's talk to the people who had to craft her story qualified director, Jen Ricker, and producer Caroline Waterlo. Jenna started a conversation by talking about whether Janika through was a story that she knew about or whether she felt like she was really rescuing a story that had been lost to history. I didn't know who Johnny go through was myself. And I think what happened for me is in being introduced her story. I was a little ticked. I didn't know who she was. I was like the first woman. I don't know who the first one when you qualified for the Indianapolis five hundred this is insane. And I think it started like throwing down a rabbit hole of like how many more women don't I know about. And, and I think that became something very clear to us as we were learning more about her in culling research is that most people didn't know about her, and this is an overarching problem beyond the sport beyond her story is that every time we find out about a woman, it's still a novelty, and the more novelties the less progress, you can make. And if people can identify with somebody who's come before it looks like a pretty big mountain to scale to go after something. So it it didn't up having a big impact on us. The Juno about the story. I did not Jenna, read the book and. I was very excited about it. And she and I became friends through another mutual friend who is also a producer on the film Nina, Kristich, and Nina, and I had worked on the OJ made in America doc, together. She's a archival genius, and our other producer, Greg. So the four of us all kind of came together, and John had this incredible disease of an excitement for the story, and we all immediately agreed and sort of got on board to me, it was like seventies women race cars. Awesome. The need. There's no you look at a picture of her her suits with her car. And you just think I need to know everything about this. And so it was kind of a no brainer for me to want to produce it and try to talk. Yes. PIN into making it people who are listening to this podcast will have heard her and got of personality. I'm wondering if you can take a crack at describing Janet's personality to natio- single minded in pursuit of things, she's very inflammable. And so it's probably what maters such a great race car driver. Like, as we did this discovering. Like never seen it IndyCar race. Never seen a NASCAR race. And then gets in these cars and excels. And I think that's to or credit, you know she did jump from kinda crappy sports cars to the top level of the sport. And it's to your credit that it was like give me the machine. And I will make it excel. Yeah. And then the great joy of, of Janet as a character to is you go the next layer to her. And it's like oh, she jumped out of a plane when she was sixteen right? Oh, she's an aeronautical engineer. Oh, she built her own engine? You know, we talk about, you know, stem in education, outright, science technology, engineering math, you know, she is like the stem spokesperson of all time, and that's another all the areas that she excelled in are just these kind of have traditionally not been is that we hear about women. Do you think she was motivated by just? I'm really good at this and I want to do this or how much did she recognize the sort of trail-blazing nature of what she was doing? She. Was not trying to be the first she was not trying to make a huge feminist statement. She's like I'm just trying to drive my car and I am good at it, and I and I love it and I want to do it, so please, let me do it. But then she talks about in the film how over time as people point out to her, that she is this trailblazer. And she sorta realizes that it has become a role that she does feel some responsibility towards in terms of being this woman to blaze a trail. And so she she, she's a reluctant hero in that sense. I think that was one of the things certainly that drew me to her. I think that most trailblazers arrest people who do these things aren't consciously thinking, I'm going to carry this banner. It is because they're so focused on the thing. They believe they're meant to do that. Eventually, there's a wake behind them. I think for all women. It's always like you're, you're carrying all of them and had on your back. Like, what are you? I'm just trying to go shopping. You know, like it's always so weighted down. Down, and it's a big burden to carry that doesn't happen to men excelling it something or stepping out of the norm. They're not all of a sudden given us albatross, the failure. Yes. So high. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I thought that came through really strongly in the film and continues to this day. But just this notion that certain people have much shorter leashes than others. Certain people I shouldn't mince words like white men, get much longer leash than others. You have to be perfect if you're going to try and be I. Yeah. Or even eat. Yeah. Even get the shot. It's, it's. But there were there were explicit. I mean it was explicit in that moment. I mean, they're you know, I'm trying to remember the particular quote. But there were, there were race officials basically saying this is your chance to prove a new only get one. Yeah. Right. You have to raise Trenton before let you even set, you know, step on the track at Indy that was very much like, you know, someone's going to get killed with this woman on the track. I mean now I mean it's about as high stakes as you could imagine for her going improve herself. I mean people were very concerned about it. There's times when it's like how this is an old boys club, and people are being just sorta, like joke fraternal about it. But then there's times when, like some of the signs that were out there and some of the language of use was like, and had, like, really scary. Grandstands behind his. It was always see the people agitate ner say rude things the save. Nice has get the tips out of the pets here come to young guys seem I say, hi Janet, you got to qualify said, I hope so. He said, well, we don't we hope you crash on our corner. I didn't really have a thick skin. If that's what it took to get a shot at the Indianapolis five hundred I would deal with it. That's all. Couple years before Janet arrives on the scene. Women aren't even allowed in the pit area. And so these female sportswriters sued the track to get access. And I was reading one of the articles about it, and there's drivers saying if I see one on the track and went around the bitch over. I mean this is what they're saying. And this is just somebody asking to do your job and be reporter. It was sort of shocking, and then not shocking. In nineteen seventy eight Gordon Johncock an Indy champion. He shook the car down when he came back. He got out of the Carney, through his helmet. He was furious. And he realized that

Yes. And tell you why also because, you know, the way the point system was in those days. You know you receive two points per mile. So Indianapolis, you've got a winning in two thousand points and all the other race of one hundred mile or two hundred mile or so as you could see you had to put together a strength of a lot of wins. You know, to just equalize and I sixty six sixty and sixty I think had a.

But you know that happens. Holly right down here in the front. Holly Kane from the NASCAR in the wire service. I wanted to ask you kind of your thoughts and your expectations coming in. And what's going to be like to co drive with some fantastic teammates here are expectations to win. And you know, I think that we have a platform to do that. If you look at the success that the team had last year is new team coming in and learning curve to catch up to the other teams. I think they didn't amazing job of that and already going into two this year. There's a lot of talk about how much you know, progress they've made. So I think that that's you know, a warrant for for good expectations. And these teammates are some of the best in the grid. I think and if you feel very fortunate to be able to have them to coach me up and give me up to speed quickly as possible guys. Thank you. Appreciate it. We'll see you soon. You know, what I think is really cool is is the fact that the Penske guys will bring over a driver another IndyCar driver from another IndyCar team in Alex Rossi. I mean, the the Penske guys are fulltime guys Castro visited Mongolia. Then you've got Cameron and Ricky Taylor when they do these around the clock things, you know. And and the fact they wanna bring another driver in. And there's a little cooperation there between the two IndyCar teams. I think is is terrific by bringing former Indy. Five hundred winner Alex Rossi over from Andretti's bunch to work with those Penske guys. I think that's very very cool. And of course, the reason why we talked to those guys as they have as good a chance as any to win this Rolex twenty four and they're always worth watching because they have the best -ment. And and some of the best drivers in terms of lineup so Castro Neves Montovia Taylor Cameron and Rosty. That's the Penske pod..

We have probably the greatest racing driver of all time a champion to the Indy. Five hundred Daytona five hundred Formula one world championship and a winner of racism series across the board, and at the highest level on dirt ovals road courses, and perhaps even more impressive than his efforts on the tracks is passionate presence as probably the greatest ambassador for racing and motorsports. The what only Mario Andretti. Welcome to WGN. Thank you. Thank you for having me. They you know, what you think about it. Like what a career what a life so many amazing stories, and there's those kind of transformational moments in a career that kind of market forever. And it's the kind of thing where whether it's food for the James beard awards or for movies with the Oscars, and you have like five of those you have so many of those things the almost have to build in to the introduction. But we're talking with our. Friend Doug bowls from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He had mentioned in you've seen it. We've seen it in print. A lot of times is that you'll often credit your win at the Indy. Five hundred as really kind of the biggest of all those really big moments. Well, you know, it's because but in the five hundred really means to a race driver as as an event. I mean, the rich tradition that it told something that everyone seems to know that again, I said seemed like a hundred years ago, yet seems like yesterday why because you know, fans when they express themselves the one thing that comes to their mind is the Indy. You know, the, okay, it's not the championship say know. Or some other events. It's the one that they all remember so the because of that that's from a driver's standpoint careerstep points. I mean, it's a carries so much weight and. When I want it, even though it was relatively early in my career felt there was a huge weight lifted off of this because I had this one in now, and then whatever happens for MIR on whatever happens happens. But again, you know, you see this so many great drivers that were not fortunate enough to even though they dominated one comes to mind. I think as my son Michael right after stay is dominated that race more than once. And they never was able to to to bring it to the checkered flag, and and because of that maybe sometimes fairly, you know, your career judged by that, but but again, you know, you just gotta go with it. But the fact that now, you know, we're talking about, you know, fifty years diversity on my goodness. You know, it's so flattering, you know, what the speedways doing for us this year, and I can hardly wait to get going on it because it's the excitement is right back all over again that crazy. Okay. So so you say, you know, it seems like one hundred years ago, and certainly you had and lived out the careers of so many drivers even in your own career. And so it was a long time early on in the career. Like, you said at that point. You had become really successful. I mean that would have been just a win the Indy. Five hundred like you said whatever happens happens. I mean, you'll you'd go down in history. No matter what right from there. But it is. There's a lot of luck involved with it to you got to you've got to be talented for sure. But then you also have a little bit of luck to win that race. And you've had a lot of that you've been fortunate in a bunch of different ways you mentioned it's seems like just yesterday. It is fifty years. Are you surprised at how big? It is. We know it's big for you. You've shared that. How big it is for everyone else. Like everybody marry. You're not the only one excited. The speedway is excited. All the fans are excited. This is big for everyone. Yeah. He not just excited. I'm overwhelmed. But everything that is going to be going on. I mean, they're going to have a career exhibit at the museum. The museum of speed in Portland. Oregon gonna have a display an exhibit there for this year. And and on and on, you know, so I'm ready for it. I don't know. I I it's not guaranteed by very likely. I'll be pacing the race itself. And how it might two-seater. We'll see what know what happens that has been settled yet. But you know, I'm sorta looking forward so looking forward to the IndyCar season to begin with. Yeah. It is going to be great. And you've never stopped being involved in a big way in it as well. And kind of going back a little bit to the fact that well, whatever happens happens. What was that driving force was it after you won indie to get out there? And obviously prove you got Formula one when it comes to know worldwide global prestige that is as big as it gets. And it's it's amazing. The cars are obviously amazing. It's totally different. You've talked. We've talked to a bunch of different drivers who've dabbled in her tried some of these other series, and although it is racing. And you're racing against other people, and they are cars, they're totally different. What made you decide to kind of get into to Formula one? Was it was it just another challenge to go out there and see if you could be successful, they're too. Well. Yeah. I mean challenge I think is the word, and I was I always had seventy two. You know, the Formula one, especially you know, when I was still I was born and raised in Italy at that's what when I fell in love with the sport. So it was part of my my dreams. My ambitions, you know, to to venture into that area. But, but I was curious, you know, along the way, you know, they have different discipline at the top level. Like even NASCAR was able to fortunate enough to you know, to to join the right team at the right time. And you know, and I was able to put a fact even before indie two years before I won the Daytona five hundred or so and that in itself, you know, was was huge for me. And then, you know, even before that when you see bring and events that are very important, they're huge in in their particular discipline. And so again Formula one was one of my. Ultimate ambitions as well. And and was able to you know, put that one together fortunate and blessed to be able to do that with Lotus one race in Formula one Ferrari, as well, you know, so that that was you know, Ferraris what meant to be obviously from being the talian. So again, you know, we looking back gosh, I mean. Never, you know. It was gonna be the way the way it turned out. You know, just like I said this totally blessed as you travel around. And when you have kind of you know, that presence I think be especially in all these different worlds. We cover all of them. And I've covered of all of them, you know, for twenty years, and you know, it's a different crowd. You know, the NASCAR crowd is a different crowd certainly than the Formula one crowd or even the open-wheel crowd all fans of racing, but it's a different fan base. And were you surprised when you got a chance to win the Daytona five hundred which gives you ultimate and legendary street cred on the stock side that you brought in even more fans that maybe do you think maybe Mario that also became fans of some of the other series because of you? Well, yeah, again like you said, you know, race fans. Are you know, usually, they're they're pretty much interested in majors disciplined. But but loyalty, usually. Yeah. You said you do have the stockcar NASCAR fans, particularly, you know, you know, involved in care about that. But I'm sure that they pay attention to other. Other series. And so to be able to to go around and be remembered that you know, on a bigger scale trust said the majors like that. You know, sports cars, you know, that tone twenty four hour, you know, I didn't win at twenty five by one day shortened event, you know, back in seventy two I think it was. And then LeMond, you know, at didn't win overall one class seventy five was finished second overall. But just to be able to to put those behind. I mean, it just you know, it's the ultimate satisfaction. That's all I can say it's a great story. And the kind of thing that if you went into like a Hollywood movie script, they would say some believable to unbelievable nobody could be this good do all these things. But it is you it's you and so excited to hear too so NBC and we've covered it a little bit excited. They're going to really expand their racing coverage of IMSA just turning fifty years there. So so you're you're aniversary of winning India's is just as old as the entire. Imsa series. And so they're going to expand their coverage. Expanding their coverage of IndyCar a bunch of different motor sports. And from a script perspective is they are Highland. And I think this is great. It's one thing to read the staff. It's impressive. There's no matter about that. But to have to be able to tell that story and take those people who maybe didn't see or experience your career in person as it happened is they're doing a documentary on you. You're going back to your boyhood home. You can go back to where the Formula one. You're going to be able to tell those stories and that's coming up on may eleventh. And we'll talk to you about that as we get closer to. But that's that's gotta be exciting. What was it like for you? We know the viewers are going to love it. But for you to go back. It's one thing to think about it. But the be there. Yeah. What's awesome about it? Again, if you get to you. You're reliving your life again. And you know, I go back periodically to my hometown. Which is you know, it's not Croatia was obviously when we left, but and and. And again, a Seagal gosh, I can't believe that. I lived that life. Even I was at the beginning of my life, but still and going back now and filming with the NBC was the excitement all over a going to looney Abbott Tony area where the media media the big thousand mile sports race. It was very popular in the fifties. Especially when Aldo nine. Attuned brother watched alongside a row we tried to find that spot. Exactly where it was. And I mean, all of it, it just relieving all of that. And and then looking at what NBC is doing overall, you know, what else sport? Obviously, we're excited. They're excited to to be, you know, to be showcasing Indianapolis this year, you know, and. And and the entire series entire IndyCar series. So there's so many good things going on that we can hardly wait for everything to start in about a month or so and tried to and we're listening to our interview with Mario Andretti because of the president's speech, we're going to have to cut things at tiny bit short.
