"Will post the full video coming up soon. It's all based on when the hell I'd get my ass off the beach. Truth and consequences. Get off the beach, eh? Well, this is going to be an amazing two segments coming up right now on speed freaks. As we caught up with Mario Andretti on our 20 year anniversary, which was Thursday, June 25th. Yes, we started this crazy show speed freaks. And you guys the freak nation on June 25th in the year two and, Yeah, Mario Andretti has been one of our most frequent guests, one of our biggest supporters. So why not celebrate a huge anniversary? Two decades worth of the freak nation with a guy who has Incredible stories, and by the way, his memory is just nothing has left his member. He remembers everything. Whatever you ask, he's got an incredible story for it. So soon you will be able to see the video of the zoom call that we had with Mario on all our social media platforms. But right now, here's just a little teaser of audio with the greatest driver of all time. The freaks with Mario Andretti. Course, Mario over these 20 years when you joined us, you've mentioned some things in those 20 years whether it wass the killing of Osama bin Laden, the election of the first black president, 9 11 now or in the pandemic. Situation, social unrest, But there are some positive things, including the first black president. But there's a positive things that have happened, and one of those is Indy car and car getting back together and you are on the forefront of that madness. Do you remember all that craziness that was going on between those two? Siri's? Find it. I mean, that's just what I write about before your time, isn't it? Yeah, on mentioned that that man damning. Yeah. Yeah, That was the tough period. Really, for one that obviously like myself and many, many others. Who loved the sport so much to see it to be fractured to that degree during those couple of years, you know, before everything coming together that that was not needed, obviously, but it happened. So you know, Finally, a lot of things there have come together since Just the fact that now we have a new steward with Roger Penske. Even you know, only the Siri's and nd itself. I think that's a bright spot. Roger. Obviously, that after you know, I haven't done every expose himself to that situation, You know, assess the deal with this pandemic. But you know, brighter days ahead of us and anyone and just pushes through all of this is its Zim, Roger and his team. And so I think we're in a good place. Second, said that there's light at the end of the tunnel on that's something to rejoice about my opinion. So once we get going, I think things will speak out more and more, and we'll get some awesome. You know, we get the fans back and before you know it, you know, be will be running with it, You know, normal so I feel very positive about it. What do you think is the bigger shock? The fact that the cart Siri's split in 96 the fact that they got back together in the late to thousands or the Roger Penske's at the helm Now I think you know, everyone is kind of a shock factor. But the positive shock was Roger making this move. I thought that was the best Christmas present for all of us. I was running the first one's the list. He told me that they recall the morning before he was going to make the official announcement and out. And I I celebrated that day. I think that that was a really past and move. Is there a chance if he called you again? That maybe you would step up and join him in the running and the operation of open wheel racing in America. I really don't want a job in that respect. And if he says, would you drive one of my cars? There would be different, you know, to have an office and all of that and having to report no. Supported in a different way to support the Siri's for in every way that I can. I love that so much. And you know that I have a grandfather a lot of skin in the game, you know, and Michael his team and and you know, it. Market is a driver, so Again a lot of reasons to be very close to it and keep it in any possible way, contributing Over the 20 years of us doing this day. The thing that attracted us to you, wass. You figuratively. We're giving the middle finger to people and doing it your way and winning championships and winning races and saying what you wanted to say, Regardless of who you offended her. You impressed when we started speed freak June of 2000 That's how we started and a lot of people took offense to it. But with Staten Crash and special guest like yourself, we continue to trudge through it and prove that we belong here and it it takes a lot of metal to prove to people When you're winning championships you're bringing on radio killers that you belong here because you're different. Mario. Well, I mean, I have been known to have a have a big mouth, obviously, because I speak my mind and especially things that I really believe in s O. You know what we're talking about The racing world is I know it. We're talking about so so many careers, you know, there's so much that Khun B. Gaynor lost Be lasting about doing their own things. And so anytime that feel that something in mount, you know, minus is going wrong. I'll just speak my piece, You know s O. That's why I was not very popular. During the split, You know, you know, carp and the well but at the same time I think of what happened after that bears the fact that it was a wrong thing to do. But how did how did things come back together then Because, like you said, you were obviously on the cart side and helping Newman Haas racing and seeing things from that angle, But I didn't realize that you became unpopular. So to speak. That's that's kind of shocking to me. Even if you did speak your mind. So what was it then? That led your son Michael, his team back and therefore you as well. Well, I think things started going forward when when I became one. You know when to stop trying to, you know, Teo to be to live the same If it was a way have both Siri's pulling for the same thing..

"Andretti's behind them. Either I would do. I don't WanNa pass anybody on the right. I don't WanNa do anything man right you know. And there's some people you know they just feel that. Okay I'm going to speed limit. Well let the police worry about that. If that that is you know but You know if you're in Europe you drive that as as a whole different disciplined in driving there. They know if you're not passing someone stay on the right side in our let people go by and everything is so much safer I know. You have your where you can take a fan with you. I think it's in the INDYCAR or yes so if you ever need an extra driver I wrote home with my wife on the turnpike yesterday and I was saying a lot of prayers and watching her do past the cars on the right side and and she's she probably could fill in for you if you really needed an extra driver sometime. She's super fast. But if you look at raising today in all the different types of cars would you prefer an American car or an Italian car? That's a good question. They're all depends really whether you're going going to be able to go out there and gone back row and let your hair down a little bit but you can still do it in a corvette or though you know it's it's just whatever languages you speaking honestly. I like both. Yeah so you both both of those cars as well. Just Mario who is your most respected fo fellow? No like who would loose respects me. Credit credit honestly. I cannot give you just one because my long career you know I've had Several that sometimes even You know outside of the cockpit within really Seattle. I wouldn't get along and kind of there was a rivalry that it was. Not The you know with smiles and everything else but Later on I think is life goes on with became very good friends anyway but I've had many and I don't want to mention because I'm afraid I'M GONNA leave out in a one or two. They're very important so I'm going to leave it at that. I know you have a winery. Are you a piano or cab guy basically cab like cab? That's my favorite. You know the red wines but You know it's a cab merlot. Send your type of thing so dave and I are going to go to the PA wine and liquor store. What Andreotti wine are we or should we look for in and pick up? Cab Cab check it out. Send Them Mario. Have you ever had a speeding ticket? I knew you were going to go there. No yes no. It's been so long I can't even remember in all and that quite honestly I'm not saying Mario. You know but I've been fortunate. I've been stopped but because I don't drive recklessly I've been let go And And police using the they're good good dudes out and then stand and I would have been reckless. Put somebody endangered desert. You know a citation but I haven't had citation since ninety sixty eight and even then I beat. That one wasn't right. That's good okay. So if you had to go back and look at your whole career and you had to go back and tell young. Mario Andretti when he was in Luke. Italy what would be the one thing you would go back and tell him well number one pursue pursue your passion. I mean now and don't give up on your dreams. If you really have that burning desire to accomplish something don't give up there's always gonNA be some Roadblocks and in glitches here and there. And somebody really believe in what you're doing pursue. It's going to happen somehow and And I really. I'm a great believer that it's happened to me and that's what I would advise. Awesome Mario. Now there's a lot of people that would want to trade places with you for a day but if you could trade places with anyone on earth any period of time for one day who would that be. You guys would be pretty. I thought that was pretty change laundry. That was All right so we know you're talion. We know you love to cook. And I've seen that. You said that I would make you would probably make Ville chops if you're making a special dinner. But what else what would be dave and I were coming over. What we're what would either the menu for tonight. I don't know I mean I might garner does all of that cooking and I'd go back and have some Yoki with a brown sauce. Then Yawkey died. Idaho potatoes done properly. And that was you know one of the delicacies. One of it meals that We enjoy so much in. My daughter still has my mother's recipes. And that's what I would have for you guys. I couldn't I couldn't imagine your parents go new Italian restaurant when you guys came over here and just being like oh we can ever go out to eat. We have to stay at home like if your dad didn't like the hamburgers. He wasn't going to like anything else. There is a case. Did you have a favorite racer today? Racer now there too. Many I have many to many disciplines. Follow all of them. You do a lot of good answers. But that's a fact you know it'd be very diplomatic so there so there are so many different disciplines now. Did you ever do a drag race? I did that one. Exhibition drag racing the Hartford Connecticut. Back Sixty eight in one. Three three out of five against the national champion as far as exhibition. Did you like that like that? But that was no. That was not really my cup. Not you're raising the national champion. You've never done it before. And he went through. It was a friendly older. Very well me though. Yeah well he went back to him saying he liked to go to other sports in the same field. And just say hey. I'M GONNA come in win. I'M GONNA go and leave so Mario we really appreciate you. Joining us into. It was an amazing amazing journey through your life and thank you for sharing everything with us. Thank you for I Louis.

"Clean House in Pants. You know celebrate that evening. Yes can imagine. Now you know that Michael and I were on podium in an Indycar race fifteen times while we were we started. I A second ten times or on the front row and we are one to five times five times as a father and son or as a family. You know You can't plan. It can't even plan. That either. Happens or a dozen so when we look back as the sport has done for us. We can't blessings every day. So how does that work? Because I'm a father. I have three kids in college. Dave's father so few and your son or going one and two down the stretch you let up a little bit or you say all right. I'm GonNa make you try and beat me. How does that work? I would know no mercy my kids. It's like okay. I'M GONNA WIN. This no mercy. I love it. Difference was any six in Portland. Oregon pre there and My son Michael was leading. The race was N- second. There's no way I could have caught him. And it was about three laps. Leeann a started having some fuel pickup problems in my engineer screaming. My says Michael's some few pickup rob. I couldn't even see me. It was that far from me. We're coming down to the finish line through the last two that dragged on the straightaway. I beat him but like two inches and I have a photo and in my wife you know. Obviously it was a very quiet on the way cabin. Mario I mean he's your what did you say you kidding knows that kind of a thing desires as your screensaver on your phone. So that when he called just comes up you know the other one was that I remember the very first time that he made it. Competitive Paso made it was at the At the MEADOWLANDS Grand Prix was run. Stanford like a road course. Very tight event was an indycar race and the very first time that he made it competitive. Pass me down and Michael just kind of nudging us be funny when by me. I feel a little hotter. Well that's my boy. I mean this kind of almost pushed me out of the way is is disappearing to the sound says. That's my boy. That's awesome one of the things I read about was when you retired. You had a lot of Kinda issues with your health and one of the things that I thought was familiar that he was making his transition from racing and adrenaline and fast and all of a sudden it's slowed way down and one of the things I read was that you went to your doctor. And he said well doc. Here's what I was doing and now here's what I'm doing and can you tell us a little bit? What he what he said to you like. Why were you were having was hearing the interesting? Yeah I WANNA having some issues and Men Derek it came down to hours at the University of Pennsylvania and There was you know the Doctor. Just configured out you know basically As we were talking and finally when he realized you know what You know my job was to know what I was doing. He says I see what's happening is says your body thinks you're dead you know because you've lived in Atlanta and all your adult life and now you know you just change your life so dramatically so quickly at the you know. Your body does is confused. They don't know what they said is probably going to take a couple of years enough for you to get back in you know in somewhere in something that understood what happened after. I retired Officially and then I did Three races in twenty four hours lemond and so forth and shoes. I got back in the race car all of a sudden man I like I was reborn. Everything just amazing amaz. Us It man. This is my helmet right. After I need and that all of a sudden we realized I'm okay. I'M NOT GONNA die after all you know and it was really actually. I was a tot where I was very very concerned. You know physically. I was always younger shape all of a sudden as some breathing problems so on and so forth I asked Matz but you know my body just was trying to figure out. What the hell is this guy doing now? You and So again. I don't know if there's going to be in medical journal but it's amazing happened to me. We hear that a lot with coaches and people who've worked in the same job and position for a long time and then they retire and it's like they've lost themselves and you know things happen that way then so it's pretty interesting that when you got back in that car you just the adrenaline kick back in. You felt great so one of the last things we like to do here. It's called the no huddle where we ask you a bunch of questions and we fire match and you can give some great answers Which we would appreciate. And I a little intro for that. So and then we'll be we'll be done with the show and we really appreciate coming on so Dave we're GONNA get into no huddle here um thanks for all of our fans for joining us on huddle up with Gus. They can catch us on radio DOT COM or go to the circus and watch US under the big talk top with sal the ringmaster on MTV. We're GONNA get in the no huddle with Mario here Dave and I think this is going to be some interesting questions you have for him today. So won't you finally? Yeah fire away so need for speed. No that okay. All Right Mario would your biggest pet peeve from other drivers and we can say if you're driving to the mall not necessarily on the indy five hundred but anywhere you're driving. What's the big pepease on? Big One is anywhere will on on dual dual lane highway. You know when people are just oblivious. What's going on around him? And they're on like on the left lane and the forest faster traffic. You know pass and and do stupid things in on the right and you go by that. They're you know either on the phone or just they know they brimming and people don't realize that that actually some of the people that are slower on the road are more dangerous than the ones that are a little bit faster quite honestly and so. That's a big appeal mine. Yes they don't realise Mario Andretti's behind them. Either I would do. I don't WanNa pass anybody on the right. I don't WanNa do anything man right you know. And.

"Lax. W or. Call one eight hundred two two eight ninety to ninety and ask for Promotional Code. Ask for be. What was the moment when you felt you know what I think? I've almost realized my dream here. I've I've hit it big like. When did you feel like you were the name and racing? Was there a particular race that occurred or a win? That happened well. I don't think I felt that. I was men and racing but I felt that I belong mainly and when I think there was there was one race that I remember. I was in nine hundred sixty three. There was a Labor Day Where I want three features one day was that two features slater was supposed to was in the midget. Was it with the top major drivers of the Times And it was that race. That inflammatory Jersey in one in Hatfield Pennsylvania afternoon one evening and I I want a heat race and a match race feature Clean House and then that was a third feature after the the the Hatfield race because there was a ray now feature from the weeks before so one that as well and I remember on when I was on the cool down lap. The announcer which was a guy named Chris. Connor maquis was like the God in the sense of really What they call a spore news. Which was the Bible of erasing right and you know a few were recognized by him then somewhat you must have done some doing some advertising part and I remember forever even to my helmet heard it says he we had a shrill voice in this mari-el you just want the ticket to the big time you know. He just set something that sounded really good to me. Imagine that's really moments like that. You know I beat some pretty good dudes today on maybe up the long hair and writes reinforcement. That it gives you you know like a confidence level. Tampa saying it's all about. That's when when you win you win a high you win you know you know few be one of the very top teams. You know darn well. You've done something today. In in the sport here again almost every decade is got that guy that guy. That's the yardstick right. And and you know when I broke into. Indy cars didn't invite by nineteen sixty five As a rookie Who was the guy that was really was five years older than me so established zigic foyt so If you beat him and he finished second. That was a good day and I did that in Formula One two years later when I did my very first Formula One was made debut at the US Grand Prix with lawyers. Who was the guy to beat was Jackie Stewart in? Hey was current world champion. He was really again the yardstick. At who did I beat for Paul? First race was on pole. Jackie Stewart when I want my very first Formula One race in South Africa for Ferrari nineteen seventy-one who finished second to me. Jackie Stewart's those are the moments where you figure I belong here. You know gives you that feeling that is impossible even to explain if you know what? I mean They said that God's been good to me type of thing that's what it is right and you said it before you have to have a good team with you like even though you do the work you know as we played football and you see the quarterback on the field there's coaches there's equipment managers trainers. There's all this goes with you and I'm sure that you always had a good team around you because you could tell them something. That's going on with that car and they can instantly fix it but team team you year. A lot of people don't realize how much of a team sport it is Because you're basically driver. You're the quarterback. But unless you got you know you know good defense and good guys protect your when you're in a pocket through all the right thing. We know that you can perform in a so. It's a team that gets done and that in our sport. It's not just that drives guys rounded but it's also how do they prepare that car right off? That card car is the way I looked at a race. Guys like Like a beast. That can actually hurt you. You know and you're basically the trainer to you. Know you gotTa make that beast can kill. You gotTa make a per and get that beast to sort of respond to your command. And it's all of those factors. And how do you derived by? Having an engineer really understands your style understands you know your input and be able to because the race car is a machine of thousand adjustments. It's all about you know just everything to your style. Get the balance of the car. That actually complement your style. Driving and It's it's very complicated. Blame me again. It's it's just. It's a labor of love for one thing but it's also the you have the right people around you. People really understand what you need is a driver to be able to give it to perform your best. So it's a constant. I mean you never arrived. You never really have all the answers because technology is sort of a moving situation you know. It's always learn something new and and I've been going through. The decades in our so much development was happening in a car which is fascinating back. We know so much today but you know we didn't have computers until the mid eighties right. You know we were the first indycar actually to be instrumented not to give the with a computer to give in on him back information. Oh yeah that would never knew before. We had the first test that proving grounds in Romeo Michigan with telemetry. And I saw now can this but a number on this is what fell like and this is why felt the way that you know. Now everybody knows that you know. But it's like I said it's it's a fascinating process now but you gotta stay on top of tell you what they you sleep too late one day one day behind right when did. When did the headsets come in that? Somebody would be telling you what's going on ahead. You could talk back to them. When did that all start for you? Well it's all about all of these things that Could have happened before they were not allowed. I rules you know it's I think in many ways has to be controlled by rules because otherwise it will be so lopsided because there's always somebody that's got you know the better idea so There's a specific rule book that they used to be this thick nights that segment you know to to be able to control and and give a relatively level playing field and so we we were Back in the late seventies already. We had radio contact. Like whenever I come in engineer would plug in and we could talk property otherwise you know to the helmet him communicate. We were not allowed to have communication While driving so everything was on the board. You know when you go by could only get information once a lap which was which was equal for everyone and then I think for reasons of safety then they thought you know we should driver should have communication because the least something happened in front of you know immediately get a warning turn to or whatever tornado whatever you are incident whatever so it was because not because of performance because of safety that was implemented and then of course. Now it's it's a normal thing in the proper communications but the fact that everybody has a communication doesn't give you an advantage where I'm saying I was When there was communication everybody was you know I had a week war. That is and the same thing today. So but it's all about again in the sport as you regulate it to make things Control so again you can do more with less if you know what I mean. Even the engineers they in so many ways to keep their hands tied because otherwise you could today with the knowledge we have. You advocated Garnier. All you have to steer you know anything and so they're trying to keep everything as a sport and keep it a hands of the driver so I I you know there's To keep balance the car you know you have adjustments in the front wings rearranged to know that you could have all of that you know on the steering wheel and everything but now they're not allowed you have to have it so the mechanics have to do it manually. Remember I used to get emails and so forth you know from the engineers m you know. I know I could use the. GimMe a wiring thing. You know this is that you could do this. You know this and that no you can't do it and we're not allowed. I'm not a bit more not so there are many restrictions which is good like indy cars. Formula One you know you could have Traction Control Francis no they're not allow you see what I mean so that the driver figured out how to get the you know. And then you know and and connected we're not We'll spend type of things so that's the way the sport is regulated right. I'm thinking from the perspective of a casual racing fan. Many people don't appreciate the physical and mental insertion. These guys go through more. What what's it like like the day after the indy? Five hundred like how? Do you feel mentally physically assuming like there's no accident. Just what's that? What's that like? Well you know. Each race almost is different because there's so many factors it's even ambient temperatures factor It could be a cool day. You're much cooler because the the heat is a big enemy in honore scar. Whether the car is it's an open cockpit or closed cockpit And and so bad in itself is a factory fire fatigue in throughout the race there some racism road races. They're more physical than Indianapolis Indianapolis it. Not as long as five hundred miles so each track has its own. You know Obviously call qualities or even the secrecy and the competition of that day The way you had to Fight the car versus your sometimes. If your car is pretty well balanced the way really one year much more relaxed their other times when the car means giving fits and you are on top of that in every second there's so many factors that can determine you know what kind of a have there's some days Some racists Presley Long Distance Races that are member success when we wanted to see bring. I mean I I was spent as I've ever been in my life you know after that race and because why because it was really exceptionally hot day and because a lot of wind and with a lot of air intakes a plugged up you know but they re and so forth and attract throughout the race and have Bruce McLaren and I were just done done back when I came home. My mother looked at me. She started crime. Because that's not is we're in my head and like an inch just one of those things and you know. I'm not a big guy physically but his some weekends throughout the week and lost as much as five six pounds of When you when you sweat water you know what you know. So so. It's that kind of interesting I have. I have a friend in Washington. Dc WHO swept testing and they did it on rally rally car drivers and they had two brothers that were. Kinda you know same age of like you and your brother would have been and they both drove for twelve hours. Same car in a rally and the one brother got out and he couldn't even move. They had to carry him out of the car and the other brother after twelve hours got out and he could just walk right away so they what they learned was they put all these patches all over him in the one brother sweating so much more Than the other brother and it just fatigued nights. He does all this testing because they work with the military for the the pilots. And everything like that. Because that's the last place when you're flying f one fighter or something you know you go down because you're dehydrated when it's an individual thing as you can imagine even the again how you prepare for a number one but also what are you dealing with to read out in. Heidi react to that and it's all about even wasted energy at Times. I found myself. You know. Sometimes you know I got a long way to go better spy relaxing alone. You start you know. I need be surprised how much you can recoup yourself out of potential disaster. Just but that's you know. Okay I'll be fine. You know this type of thing and their situations like that. Yes so many like a pregame meal that you often had the same thing like a ritual or was that a random thing or like. I tried to a lot of the same things. Yes you know. I think it's very important to have your. You know your body trained at the something that you know works in a lot of people like to have a really heavy meal so I couldn't couldn't deal with that because I think You know when. Your body is concentrated on digestion. You're taking a lot of the energy out of your brain and so forth so I was. I thought that I was good light the night before and everything else that have you know. Obviously a good Proper meal but But like before the race I had a fairly light meal you know so I felt probably best myself. It's it's it's it's a personal thing right right so we wanna make sure we think all of our fans for joining us here on auto up and and if they get a chance to go out to the. La Bonaventure Hotel.

"mario andretti" Discussed on Huddle Up with Gus

"Joining us today. Mario Andretti learning us. And they've more and more. We are so excited to have you. It is a real honor to be able to sit here and talk with you and be able to. Have you tell us Your Life Story? So we're really excited about that kind. Thank you so one of the things we always talk about is how sports shaped your life. I mean sports is synonymous racecar. Sports in driving is synonymous with your name. So go back to the beginning if you could for us and tell us about the first memory where you fell in love with sports. Wow that's going back to this really. My first one became a teenager. Really Basically Still living in Italy I don't know why I have a twin brother Aldo and both of us just became fascinated with motoracing for. I don't know for whatever reason I don't know I guess it came from above because there was no family background. You know that that would take us in that direction or Family didn't even have a car actually at the time and but anyway But Italy was very prominent in Formula One. Especially we're talking about the mid fifties and And of course Ferrari Maserati for a male been protagonist in Formula One so big deal in Italy in In my idol just became better Scotty. who was a world champion fifty three fifty four when it was you know thirteen and fourteen years of age in. Nineteen fifty four. I'll deny were Some friends took us to the Italian Grand Prix. In Monza first time we ever saw race of that magnitude and I think the mall was cast at that point now. God you know if I can never ask for anything and nothing else in my life Give me the opportunity to become a race driver and And again the passion just really started then Just to go back. Our life was a little bit of turmoil because of You know basically We were a product of World War. Two Where I was born as far northeast part of Italy It's a region gall east of the peninsula visalia which Right after the war. Actually Italy lost the war with. Who is we all know that? They lost that territory saw that became occupied by Yugoslavia under hardline. Communism and And soon as their borders or obviously changed We were trapped inside a communist country. And Uh and there was a choice that everyone could make either remain succumb to that aura. Or leave and Us like probably ninety percent of the population that region we left. We came refugees in our own country. And so have from forty eight to fifty five. We moved to Luca in Tuscany for eight to fifty five. We were in a refugee camp. So basically That's why From there then there was an opportunity to come to America and We had some relatives out on my mother's side who had been here for many many years and down. So that's how I really This My teenage years that to using but anyway We came to America nine hundred fifty five and and here again. We had no idea what America would have for us in a way of How To pursue the sport? We thought Italy was place to do it. Even though that would have been totally the impossible dream a when we arrived there we arrive there on a Thursday and on a Sunday. We were there. Mongols House and Just lounging around and down and we see some lights in the background. In which was at the and all of a sudden there was a big explosion of vengeance money and so there was a stock car racing modified stock cars at the local fairgrounds in. We end who idea what the hell that was. You know so. I'll deny we just looked at each other week booked. You know we We went for For THE LIGHTS CHECK IT OUT. Check it out and we looked in there and say oh my goodness you know this brutal looking things. But it's the sound good and all that and two years later. We started building one with a couple of buddies in two years after that My career began. My career began in nineteen fifty nine and and my very last competitive race was in two thousand so I was very blessed and very lucky so when you went to your first Italian Grand Prix when you were a teenager. Would you remember about that day? Do you remember the smell? The noise the people. What was it that really like if you if you remember a smell like if you get in a car or something what what was that like for you do you still that memory come back. You often unbelievable yet. I mean there was defining moment even at their young age of fourteen Where again he says my God. That's all I WANNA be. I WANNA be like a better Scotty. Farrar even finished third that day but he fought so hard then. Mercedes cars finished ahead of him but nevertheless said he been back. Obviously since and and it's fake havoc you imagine that's where clinched the world championship and Moans in. Uh but I won MOANS. I want a sports car race. Seventy-three would offer a male at a thousand kilometers. And I want the Grand Prix in ninety seventy seven so Again you know imagined from a personal satisfaction standpoint. Let people ask me Give me a favor ratio career. You know. Been named eight hundred seventy nine races sexual races. Migra plus like another forty more unsanctioned said what's your favorite race It's so easy to say you know when I won ground. Cre- there because of what happened at the early age. You know at the age you know my career you went from the from the kid. Watch now to the kid on the track driving around. I couldn't imagine what that was like for you. The that's does it. Should you when you went back over there? Do you still have a lot of family over in Italy? Yeah yes of course We For many years of course the the stage of my life you know we're losing them. You still have close relatives cousins there in Florence in that but I I had gone back almost every year. Visiting and And again that's still my My native land and Hoist half the stadium. Passport does not change the blood me so half. The stadium was your relatives I race. You went back probably well. You know actually You know it's amazing When I go back even the two was the last time that drove ammonia and Substituted one of the drivers. They was killed the team driver for Ferrari and I was asked to substitute or not went there and I set the car on Paul and so forth and again I can't even pay tolls on the Outer Stratas. You know what I mean the way when I go back. Sich a wonderful feeling. The fans are saw unbelievable. Their their emotions are out of this Something that's hard to explain so it's always. It's a wonderful feeling to always go back there. Morio tell us about Going back to when you first arrived in the United States. What was your first impression? What was that like when you when you finally came over was you can imagine they. We didn't know what to expect you know and so we arrived in New York from that it was a ship that Bianca. Mono and we had our cousin John Menu who picked us up on our way back. We stopped for lunch You Know New York is about almost eighty miles away from where I live now. Nazran so we stopped for. Lunch was one of those at the called. The bullet diners. He's and So and I remember that They order some hamburgers for my go. It in auto order you know language and And and my dad thought that the hamburger tasted like cardboard. My Dad had has gotten much better. I mean when you talk about food in then my mom was a supreme shop and it's up there was a little bit getting used or you know but the only thing that I remembered clearly is what I what this kid's what we love. We got a milk shake chocolate. Milkshake allemand at least that shake taster. Well some getting used to and everything but We had an open mind. You know I've My older sister was Was One of those you know. She was a pretty positive in our thinking and then she was all excited when we when we navigate a Arrived at Port New York rather five in the morning. Beautiful Day in June and Sir. Twenty twenty first birthday and now here we got in the skyline of New York and everything it was out. You know very positive feeling you know but That of curiosity you know. Who are we about to see What's life going to be like because you know when we left? My Dad says okay. We're going to America. You're not took three years to get visas when the apply visas nine hundred fifty two the almost forgot about it in fifty five. They were approved that we go through physicals and everything but anyway so he when he broke the Newsday. We're going to America. Says WE'RE GONNA America for like five years and then come back thing so we we had no idea that coming to America and it's going to be the rest of our lives you know so again. It was a lot of curiosity and and actually faster vibes really to be honest with you so when you got here did you go to school or where did you go to school in. Nazareth Nazereth. Yeah Yeah We. We arrived in Jiu so obviously went to school but the good thing is that we all done. I had three years of English when we were in Luca. School there in schooling. There was much more sophisticated than here. I give you for instance Our classes were eight hours. A day was eight thirty to twelve thirty and then we had a break. Two to six and Friday was to five and Saturday eight thirty to twelve thirty. So you you go figure when we went to school already you know. We should have been we. I was fifteen years old. Saw should have been like tenth grade and And obviously they put US seventh grade because of the language barrier and I arrived. There was one hour homeroom. You know. I never heard of that because every hour was class right so you felt like it was time there was a sesa man. I like America. I love this. You know so but yeah it But it worked out really well because You know the teachers. They understood situation and And a cassette from June to Reno September. When when went to school?.

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.

The indy cars or formula one sometimes adaptive apt to cars. Were not the way that i read one to be but i was able to find a way to drive so i could overcome some about that. You know the fact that we're on maybe not as balanced as they were so all data felt you know career wise benefited me but benefit it is one thing and the passion and the love for driving something else and fundamentally.

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

"Because the weather was so crummy in Toronto pretty much, you know, since the weekend in through Monday by the time, they got all the flights that were canceled on the Monday rescheduled, it was tough for Mario who was on in in a private plane on the ground in Pittsburgh at four thirty. And he and the dinner starts at what seven. So I don't think he's going get link. It's going to get here. But you know, what the great little guy stuck with it. And he got up a plane. He landed in Toronto, the you know, they whisked him from the airport in into Toronto. And he put on his tux. Cedo? He got up there. Eight a bite of dinner because as soon as he got there. They put them up on stage along with Townsend bell on these two guys sat there on these two swivels tools doing some of the best standup I've ever seen. It was hilarious. It really really was hilarious because Mario stool had. Really good ball bearings in it. And it kept spinning around in keeps saying, I think there's too much oversteer on this stolen. Can you starts to spin around and around anywhere? Townsend was was talking to him about it and Mariel said something pretty poignant, and it pretty funny too. He said, I'm not gonna try and do his voice, although I try to do it. He was saying that the the engineers nowadays rely too much on the technology and don't do enough seat of their pants in the listen, he says without their lap charts, you know, and and without their their their their graphs. It doesn't really work. And he says, you know, what they need to stop doing that. He says I had an engineer tell me once when I was in the car put the track bar on five. He says I looked at him and said don't you think I know where to put them track bar? He's Maryland running for quite loud. Anyway, great that we had the the brief time with him because it it just made the the gala that much more special to have Mario Andretti there. Okay. Well, let's work up that final pitstop went up ahead. The Subaru Raisani.
