"You know what I mean? Man, I want to be riding. You know, I want to beat Ryan Blaney. That's it man. And I want to do the things he's done. I want to be that guy. But I think so many things have happened. And he's allowed them to get in his head that now he's making things happen. And that's the problem. We grew up and it's first second. Third, fourth. It's an H pattern. Yeah. You know what I mean? So in that strange way, it's muscle memory. It's muscle memory from the time he drove anything. Any type of car, it's just a muscle memory. And when you go first, second, third, third, second. You know what I mean? Or whatever, whichever gear he went to. It's like, it's muscle memory to go to third, but you went back to second. And you're lost up there somewhere. Because you bypassed what you know and just went back to something that was just ingrained in you. And that's where I say he's lost. He's overthinking so much up there. That sometimes he defaults to what used to be. Whether it's what the car is doing, whether it's how the car is driving, whether it's different things, he's default places is not a good place. And I just think that once you get to that place and we are, what is this? 34 races into a season. No winds, more stage winds than pretty much anybody else. Has won the second stage, like 6 or 7 times. You know, I have a great point. Has been there. And you've done all this stuff. It's kind of like the Truex thing where what do I got to do? You know what I mean? Well, you got to get out of your way. And you just got to free it up and you got to get out of your way. And it's sad to watch him because you won't even want him. I wanted him and Truex to be 20 and 21. As far as it went. I don't think you're going to get that now, because I think this other group's getting ready to play big ball. But I look at it and I think there's no shame in color and a sports psychologist. You know, there's no shame in trying to get help. We have Josh wise, who physically trains us. Why don't we have someone middle a trainer? There's no shame in that, man. Get it done. Somebody needs to. When I drove, if I could have gone and found somebody to help my head, I would. You know, I would have. Didn't exist when I drove. You know what I mean? Not in this sport. You know what I mean? But it didn't exist. So I think when you look at it, I think he's got to get out of his way, but I think with two races ago, it's way too late to get out of your own way. And to think that he is mentally strong enough or that team is good enough to go to Martinsville and have a walk off. I just don't think they're in that place. I just don't see that team. Part of that hard track to flip the switch at alien. You said it. He's got a score maximum stage points, lead labs, possibly win, and that means he's got to qualify well. That's right. He said post race at homestead that this is the most important qualifying session for these guys in their career at Martinsville, explain why. I believe this is the most important qualified session that these guys maybe have ever gone through in their life. And Martinsville, especially. Because we have heard, we go into Texas, and you've got chase Elliott and Texas, the guy with the most stage points, the most everything, pre race they interview him and I made a joke of it. After they did the interview, I said, okay, today's drinking game word is point. Because Chase Elliott just said it 15 times in an interview. You know what I mean? Yeah. Okay, we go to yesterday, post race. Denny Hamlin talks about points. Ross Chastain talks about points. Everybody talks about points. I didn't hear a single driver. Say we're going to go there and win. Nobody said that. Nobody said, we're prepared for Martin, so we're going to go there and win. That's what our goal is. Everybody said, we're going to go up there and we're going to maximize our points. We're going to run the best we can. We hope, but we're going to maximize our points. So what that tells me is we're going to go stage points racing for a large degree. And especially in that first stage, especially that first stage, if Ross Chastain comes out of that first stage and gets 8 or 9 points, stage points, man, he's looking good. Yeah, he's looking good. So why wouldn't you put it all on the line? But to get those stage points, you got to qualify out there because you're not going to qualify 21st like Denny Hamlin's been doing lately. And find your way into the top 8 or ten, or the top four or 5. And Martinsville. And a hundred lives. A lot of Martinsville, not unless there's a huge wreck and they take everybody out and everything shifts and all this stuff. So and there are always extenuating, but straight up racing. I'm just saying straight up racing because everybody will come back with you. Well, what about if and bytes? But the thing is, you just can't do it. And the first race we heard everybody complained. You can't pass here. I don't think this race is going to be that way because I think the guys have had 34 races with this car. So they've learned different things about the car. They've learned different things, tires different. They've learned different things about all this stuff. So I don't think we're going to have that. But it's still going to be incredibly hard to pass each other. I mean, we talk about it a big track. Why don't we go, it's going to be the same thing here. So I think to go up there for Rawls, for chase, for Danny, for William for C bail, chase Briscoe. For all those guys, everybody that's on that list. Those are the 7 drivers. Take Joey Logano out of it. But for those 7 drivers, they need to go up there and be one through 7. They need to go up there and just be one through 7 dude. You know, just eliminate it. Just go in there and do what you got to do. Because that is going to be who your weekend starts. That's where your weekend starts. And chances are, if you're weak in that start good there, your weekend's not going to end well. That's a good plug to watch the cup qualifying session this Saturday at Martinsville, and then the race Sunday will be on NBC, and afterward this guy will be given his opinions. Kyle Petty. Always a pleasure having you. Thank you. Appreciate it. And we appreciate Kyle Petty for joining us on the NASCAR NBC podcast. Thanks to producer Aaron feldstein and motor sports manager, Emily convoy for coordinating KP's appearance. NASCAR heads

"Under it and over it, so it's coming through. It's even worse. It's worse than it's been. And that's another thing that I haven't been used to. I've been used to that because there used to be grandstands on there. So they took those down. So I mean, there's so many factors that come into that. It's not an incredibly wide pit road. You know, by any stretch of the imagination, everything is that teal Turquoise blue, whatever, so I mean, it's like you can't decorate. You know what I mean? I mean, the colors and everything together. And then you got all these boards waving and you got all this stuff. And you've got a dirty pitted windshield. It's the end of the race. You've got rubber buildup. We've already talked about it most of the race, how much rubber was little chunks of rubber debris up next to the wall and how it was tough to get these guys to go up there and pick it up and try to run it all. So there's so many factors. And then he's leading a race. And you know, he just come past his pit stop. And every driver has done it. Every driver has missed your pit box. Drivers leading before have missed their pit box. He just missed his pit box. There was no way he was going to get in his pit box. He got hit from the rear, spun all the way around. And stopped. And the rotation of the car slowed the car down more than he could have slowed it down with the brakes. You know what I mean? So if he had just turned left and sit on the brakes, he's going to end up at least one pit, maybe a pit and a half past his pit, which messes up these guys behind him because they're trying to get in their pits, too. So Larson was just an innocent by center. If Larson checks up, if Larson even knew it was coming, which I don't believe is always coming on. No, then we have a major pile up because now we've got that pile up 6 cars deep. Yeah, the accordion effect is the 7th or 8th car is the guy that's got his hood boat up and can't see anything. Everybody else gets a bump, but that 7th or 8th guy. So, you know, and the big picture, it has to be, this has to be. And I heard trek say, well, it has to be a little bit my fault. Yes. 99.9% is a little bit. You know, it is. And there's nothing that Larson could have done. If it had been Chastain behind him, nothing Chastain could. No matter who was behind him at that point in time, I don't think you could have anticipated or seen it. So in a way, he almost caught a break. He did catch him. Caught a huge break. Yeah. Caught a huge break. The bad part about all of this is the safety of pit road. And I thought his crew did a tremendous job. I mean, they were throwing stuff and getting back over the wall. They reacted. But you don't always have that. So they were very fortunate. Those sports. There's only so much you can do to safeguard the pits. Thankfully, no one was hitting that instance. So Kyle Larson wins, and we have this interesting situation now, Kyle, where Larson, his car, his team now are in the championship for. This is the first time we've had this scenario in the current NASCAR playoff era that started in 2004. This has always been a possibility, but until this year, we had never seen it come to fruition. So after the race, Larson actually says, yes, if I say we were to win Phoenix, like my name isn't going to be on the championship, but having our team be the champion, I think, is honestly better than that. You're like, I would hate to be in Ryan Blaney's position. I think he's the one that's only in on driver not owner. I would hate to be in his position. And say he wins the championship and he is credited with the championship and not his team. So if I was to have it one way or the other, I would rather be out on my end and be able to celebrate the team championship. So I'm happy that we get to go compete for that again and honestly that's the paycheck too. So we're going to go for that and you were fired up about it. I don't know if he looked at this race differently, but the fact the way he closed this out and we talked about earlier that he did seem to have that extra motivation. Maybe this was motivating him. And you're a NASCAR historian. As I mentioned, this is a serious chance of a split Cup championship for the first time since 1963, which was with Joe weatherly. It's happened only one other time before that. That was 1954, that involved your grandfather. Yeah. It was one of the sides of that. So put this in the perspective of what would this mean to have a split championship for the first time in 60 years? You know, so here's the thing and I hate to, I hate to put it this way. Here's the difference. Here is the difference between then and now. Okay? Is this the way this has played out and the way it is? We got here because of the 45 team. So we got here because of an injury. Right. We got here because of an accident for all intents and purposes as it ended the full-time career of Kurt Busch. And that's not where we were in 63. And that's not where we were in 54, 53, 54. At that period of time, you had guys that would Kyle Petty would take his race car. I'm an owner. And I'd pull in to Ashley weaverville and maybe 6 drivers standing here. And I'd pick whichever one I thought was going to be the best driver in my car that night. And Glenn wood won the championship. Glenwood as a driver or as an owner in 63. But weatherly drove for Glenn wood Curtis Turner. I mean, so many guys drove for Glenn wood. And Joe weatherly drove for cliff Stewart. He drove for but more, I think. He drove for a lot of different people that year. 5 or 6 people, I think he drove for that. Yeah, I'm looking this up. Weatherly drove for 19. 19. In 1966. And when I tweeted that out, somebody tweeted me back, wait, he drove for 9 teams. It's like, yeah, it was 1963. That's exactly right. So how you got there in 63 and how you get there now is two totally different things. I think the funny part is one of those things where what happens and it will just be an anomaly that this happened and you hope it never happens again because the only way it can happen is if you have a driver injured or if you have something really tragic happen to change to shuffle the playing field because you're not going to get 16 drivers. You're not going to get 9 drivers drive one car for Rick Hendrick. You know what I mean? And put it in that. We've seen it in Xfinity. With the Penske staff and with the JGR Gibson, yeah, we've seen we've seen those guys do it.

"He's one of the business too. I mean, and he has fought hard for Kyle Busch. He's been committed to Kyle Busch. He is, they've been like this. Now there's been times they've been like this, but Joe has always stood by him. He won't seem there. And I give Joe a ton of credit for standing by his guy. And I believe you can see it on his face too, that he's worried about it. And it's a bad situation for Joe Gibbs Racing and Kyle Busch that they can't get this done. I hope they get it done. I'd really do. Kyle Busch, say what does he don't sit on the fence with Kyle Busch, either really liking what you really don't is a fan. But that guy can drive a damn race car. And there's less good days ahead of him than there were behind him. It's just life. As far as driving a race car. But there's a lot of productivity left in that man. Yeah. I mean, he's still a lot. He's 37 years old. And we're talking most drivers hit their prime around this time. Is it two time champion? He's a surefire NASCAR Hall of Famer. He's going to drive for somebody next year. That's beyond the shadow of a doubt. And like I said, he did say that until he's told otherwise he's expecting that the 18 will be his ride. But that spotlight you mentioned Jeff is interesting because I can remember going back to your final season at Roush in 2004. I can remember that there were a couple of engine failures for you in the first couple of months and it was like, oh, there's the R&D team, you know, like even if it wasn't necessarily true. And it wasn't. Like, we didn't have any sponsorship, and there was no different. We were running their team exactly the same way, but but there was a shadow over us. Right. And we knew it. And what is the future of this team? So how do you convince team members we're good? Right. How do you convince? Like, who's going to be driving this car next year? Been bay shore, crew chief. It's got a really already had a tough job. Being accomplished is crew chief ain't easy. It's not for wimps. He already had a tough job, and it just got a lot tougher, a lot. Yeah, 'cause that spotlight that you're talking about gets worse after tough weekends and Kyle Busch didn't have a terrible weekend at New Hampshire but he's fun twice on a day when a teammate wins the race, another one leads the most laps. That has an impact. And his Kyle Busch at some point said make a note. We are the slowest Joe Gibbs Racing car here. Right. Right. Slowest Toyota. So frustration is high. And if you look at this listen, one thing I've admired about the Bush brothers. Throughout their entire career, no matter what swirls around them, when they put that helmet on, it's game on. Both of them. But in this case, we've seen three weeks in a row. Of essentially three weeks in a row of Kyle Busch un Kyle Busch light mistakes. And it's hard not to try to connect the dots and say the pressure is mounting. And you know what? I don't blame him. I can relate. Like I said, I've been there. But I was never as big of a deal as Cobb wish. I've been in the shoes, and they aren't fun to stand in. I can relate and I feel bad. I feel bad for all of them. I hope they get it done. Definitely a tough situation. I want to touch on one more thing at New Hampshire. Interesting flare up between Brad Keselowski and Austin Dillon who collide under caution. Hot in the cars and probably all other tempers get the best of us. I'll talk to him privately. I don't need to be a jerk over the media. Austin says, it's just hard racing, I guess.

"A position where guys at this level really should close out a race if you got to lean like that. So just pour four effort on my part. You say poor execution, but this is your fourth straight top two finish in the NASCAR Cup Series. I'd have to say some things are going right, you're putting yourself in position, right? Yeah, but when you're in position like we've been in, you need to finish them off, you know? So the top twos don't tell the whole story, sometimes you gotta step back and look at the reality of it and the reality is, you know, I've given away a couple races just by making too many mistakes. And you know, you don't want to have that, so try to clean it up for these final events. How do you clean it up? Go to work. I don't know everything. Was he too hard on himself? A little bit after that race. You know what too he is. I've praised him for it, and I've also been like, dude. You know what I mean? What more could he have done to hold off his rebellion? Well, look, I love the fact. I love the fact that he's willing to sit there after running second and do, damn, man, that's horrible. I got to find a way to do better. I appreciate that fact because I know that he's going to go and it means it. He's not, that's not lip service from Chase Elliott. That's who he is. That's what his dad taught him to be. That's what his mom talking to me when he was young. And that's who he is now. And I love that personality. I love it's on me. Like, I need to do better because I don't love it if it's not true. If he doesn't really believe in he's just trying to take pressure off of somebody, I don't love that. But man, I hate it for him because it's not as fun to live that way, but I have a ton of respect for it and I don't know, man. I think that's part of what makes him a great race car driver. Yeah. And you overuse the word great. But he's a great race car driver. Some of you probably want to say, hey man, try to enjoy wins or even the second place finish a little bit more, but at the same time, he's just going to come back and say, I want a championship. I know what it takes. And I can't revel in something like this. He can't. And why I try to change, listen, why try to change it? You know what I mean? If your chase Elliot, you're happy with who you are, you're comfortable with who you are, be yourself. Another driver who is really kicking himself and in this case, unfortunately, it was merited. Martin Truex Junior wins the first two stages, finishes fourth, two tire call that ended up pretty much dooming the number 19 Toyota. Takes them out of a playoff clinching victory. So now Truex is on the cut line and both he and Ryan Blaney are in the top 16, but neither have wins and I know you talked to Ryan Blaney Jeffrey and The Rain delay in New Hampshire and he said the same thing. I've got to win just like Martin Truex Junior told Parker. I was like, should have done four, but science sight, you know, it's just loud and for us, you know, it's every year we lead a ton of labs, so we run really well here and then we find a way to give it away.

"Kicking his ass. Right. That was one of the most empowered moments I ever had in my life. Was that three or four years span? Because now I had perspective. That I didn't have before. And yeah, that was a crappy three or four years. It sucked. But it helped shape who I may not be a good thing, but it helped shape who I am. No, I mean, I think it was a good thing. It did shape you and after you got that win at Dover in 2006, I'm sure that that made for a ton of relief for everything you went through in 2004. And that's how that is what's out there for that picture. Yeah. No question. We mentioned Christopher Bell becomes the 14th winner in the Cup Series this season. There's two slots left right now on points in the playoffs. I want to get to that, but first I want to touch briefly, chase Elliott, even though there's all this sort of speculation. Who's going to make the playoffs who's not? How many women are we going to have? There's one thing I think we can say to definitively right now is that chase Elliott has been the hottest driver in the Cup Series. He's leading the points. He's leading the playoff points. The way things are playing out, I think he is probably the odds on favorite to get the 15 points as the regular season champion as long as he continues the streak. He's got four straight finishes of first or second, so an average finish of one and a half since Nashville with two victories and two second place finishes. But in the post race interview with Parker Kligerman, he does not sound like a championship favorite Jeff. This was rookie season chase Elliott beating himself up about failing to execute what more do you need to be Christopher Bell in that last run? Just do a better job again. Same conversation as road America, unfortunately, so I just, you know, I feel like just a poor. Run of execution on my end, you know, throughout that

"To the NASCAR NBC podcast. I'm your host Nate Ryan. Joined by the mayor, Jeff Burton, who I just learned is such a fan of this podcast. He insisted that I redo the intro because it wasn't quite pitch perfect. It wasn't your normal greetings. It was some random crap. You're the greens guy. I appreciate you keeping me on brand, man. You're a smart man, you're a wise man. You're the man who just picked Christopher Bell to become the 14th winner of the NASCAR Cup Series season at the lucky man on that one. I think you're a smart man. So yeah, a lot to talk about coming out of New Hampshire. And I'm going to start there. Christopher Bell, not only did you pick him, Jeff, but you said something really interesting, struck me. He said that you would talk to Bill recently, and he told you that he, Christopher Bell feels like he's the fastest of the Joe Gibbs Racing drivers recently. So can you expand on that? Give us a little bit of context about passing, you saw him, and he's like, hey man, I'm a lot better than people realize I haven't well, one of the best parts of my job is I get to talk to the drivers that I admire so much and I like to have conversations and he and I were talking about how his year was going and he was frustrated but he was frustrated for the right reasons that you know it wasn't that are slow. Man, we lose track position on pit stops and we're doing some things that kind of mess us up. But he said, if you look, he said, I feel like we are the fastest car it gives that we had the most speed. And now that was granted, that was a few weeks ago before they had a little rust slide, but his confidence was really high and felt great about where they were. Loves working with his crew chief. Adam Stevens like spoke really highly about the whole thing and I'm lucky because I think most of them trust me and they'll tell me things like when they don't feel good about it, they'll tell me. And he was just, man, I feel great about where we are. We just got to fix these few issues. So this one, maybe a few weeks ago, right before they switched, he and pub is. It was definitely before that. Yeah, it's interesting. I mean, he's definitely the Gibbs driver. We don't talk about and you think about especially this season. We've talked so much about Kyle Busch and his contract. We talk about Martin Truex Junior and his retirement or non retirement now plans. We talk about Denny Hamlin on the rough season he's had and being the owner of 23 11 racing at the same time. And then there's Christopher Bell who somehow gets overlooked a lot, but another thing you said I thought was interesting in the race broadcast was you think Joe Gibbs should go sign this guy to a long-term deal immediately because we saw, again, on Sunday, New Hampshire, why he's so good. Why is he so good? Like, why is he sort of flying under the radar despite being such a good driver? Well, thank you spline on the radar because who he's racing with. He's got, you know, he's got two champions, you got Denny Hamlin. Denny is in, you know, everybody knows how many wins he's had and all that. So, you know, this was the second win. You know, he hasn't had a ton of wins. So even though he's mega talented, he's young. He's very young in his cup career. His better days are way ahead of him. And he's in a camp where he's got highly successful drivers, and they're better days are behind them. So if you're a Joe Gibbs Racing, the cornerstone of your program, although you may not admit it, the cornerstone of your program right now is Christopher Bell. Because he's the guy that two years from now, three years from now, he's the guy that's going to be bringing the sponsors. He's the guy that people are going to want to be associated with. He's the guy that you're going to be recruiting the best crew members for. Right? So true X and Hamlin and they got I'm not trying to run them out of the sport, but it happens to all of us. And they've admitted it. Yeah, I mean, they're both over 40. So that guy, he is the beginning. At the very, very, very beginning of his most productive years ahead. And he's mega talented. The guy can drive anything. He hasn't been able to prove as good as he is. Because the best Christopher Bell right now at his age is right bumping up against the best of Kyle Busch, a Martin Truex. Denny Hamlin is bumping up against it. But there's going to be today that it's over it. And it's not that far away. He comes from the same background as Kyle Larson. And I also should just say real quick that I think when we think of Christopher Bell, we think of a guy who's been around a while and really this is only his third true season in the Cup Series. And we're only when we think about only a second full season because his first was with a team that's now defunct. And last year he comes on the scene at Gibbs and it's different deal with his teammates and everything like that. But he comes up through the dirt ranks, Jeff. Similar path to Larsen through you sack, does he have that same kind of skill set that Kyle Larson has that car control that we hear about the dirt guys seem to have? And I'm just not that, I don't know. I go against the grain on that one a little bit. I don't believe that the pathway to success in the Cup Series from a dirt track. I just, I've seen so many different ways when. I mean, look at the majority of our champions. I mean, there's nothing that suggests. You have to have driven a dirt car to, now there are, we do point to the guys and say, well, that guy drove dirt so you got to do that. But there's a lot of exceptionally talented champions, et cetera that didn't drive dirt. So I'm not saying it's a detriment, but I'm not just sold that you have to go drive dirt to be a great cup driver. Now I do like the versatility. In today's world, we only had dirt one dirt race. That's not what I'm talking about. I like the versatility and being able to do a lot of different things fast. I think that's good. And I think dirt because you get limited practice, different racetracks, ever changing conditions. I think that is more valuable than just driving a dirt car. And you learn, I got a dap quick. I don't have much practice. I got to go now. Hot laps are now. All that happened so much quicker and lowered. They don't practice. Practice. Practice like you do with asphalt light models, et cetera. So I think that is a great training ground. I think that, perhaps, is more important, and I think the shorter races teach you, I got to go now, I got to go now, I got to go now, and you would think that would be a detriment, and it is to some people, is an adjustment period. You got to make. We've seen it with Tyler Edith. He had to make that adjustment. We've seen it with Kyle Larson. We saw it with him. We haven't seen that as much with Christopher Bell. But I don't know that it's all dirt. I think it's more just the dirt schedule and the way things work rather than just racing on dirt. I think that probably this as much as anything. Well, you definitely have shown an adaptability of versatility. And he's got the win at Daytona road course last year, but he also finished the second road America last year. Now he's got the win at New Hampshire. Seems like he's strong everywhere he goes. But there is, I think, a little bit of an adjustment period that he's talked about. And there's an example from the race that I think kind of plays into this. Like you said, like Larsen and Reddick, I think we've seen they've talked about trying to adjust to these three hour long races and they'll kind of talked about a little bit about it after his New Hampshire wind, where he's not used to guys telling him things on the radio because he's just running those three lap features.

"This is the final lap weekly. On the final app with us once again is Martin Truex Junior, welcome back to the program. Good to be back. How are you? I'm doing well doing well. All right, so looking ahead of this weekend, you've had a couple of races under your belt with this brand new next gen car. What are you looking forward to on this one mile oval? I think just getting to our first kind of short track race of the year and seeing where we kind of stack up and we're able to do some testing out there a month or so ago and learned a little bit there. So it's been a learning curve with this new car and it's nice to go to a different style track and see where we stack up against the field, but we need to work on going forward. Is there anything you learned from that test that you're going to try to apply this weekend? Yeah, I think we learned a lot. I think we had a decent test that we never quite got the car. As good as we wanted to and the good part of the bus though, we found a lot of things that didn't work, which was half the battle in racing. So I got to work here a lot of stuff and we don't get much practice these days and it's really all about simulation and what can the guys figure out at the shop on their computers to make these things going around the track. So it was good to work on some of that stuff, but learning throughout the throughout each week here, the first couple of weeks and things have been going pretty well. So we got a great team, a great bunch and we're going to get it figured out and hopefully start winning some races again. Is there something on the car that stands out to you that maybe a punch list of things that you'd like to see changed or is there a bunch of stuff that you do like about the car? No, I think it's been good so far. I think the race has been good on the cars are fun to drive. They're really hard to drive, which I think is a good thing. We've seen out in California that some guys are spinning out by themselves and these things are a handful. So that part of it's been a lot of fun and really just look forward to working on ours.

"What's going on everybody? Rowdy dragon back again for this week's final app weekly fantasy update. Well, we're fresh back off of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and that was another heck of a race. Ross Chastain up there, given Kyle Busch a run for his money, and then of course the 48 car coming home with the win. Good stuff. Let's take a look at the pics we gave you last week. The number 12 Ryan Blaney didn't work out so well this week. Testing out the limits of the front end of that car, I garaged him early. That's one good thing about having one of your drivers fall off of your lineup early. It helps you make your decision before you have to scramble. At the second stage. And our second pick last week was Joey Logano. That worked out okay, not the best, only collected four stage points, and he was the 12th best driver in the field, so. Not too happy leaving him in there, but I had to because I had to dump Ryan blaming myself. And then looking at the third driver, Martin triggs junior also not bringing home the most stage points 5 on the day, but he did have a good run in the second half of the race and brought home. His car in the 8th position. I didn't like what I saw of Martin Truex Junior in practice. So I thought I'd keep him out of my lineup and save him for further down the road. All right, looking at your stage winners over at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Stage one went to chicken pit racing. Stage two, maybe next year, O 7 two, who also went on to take the win for the day. I finished in the 68th spot, and the parody in the league continues me finishing in the 68 spot, I only lost one position falling to 33rd spot, so it looks like a lot of people are up and down back and forth on the board here. Toby finished in the 148th position falling to the 24 spot, and Carrie wears Jimmy Murphy, finished in the hundredth spot, and is sitting in the 210th spot overall. Thanks to that missed week. Okay, so let's take a look now at some pics that could be potential winners for your lineup at Phoenix raceway, starting with the number four car Kevin Harvick. He's a master here at Phoenix. He's got 9 wins in 38 tries there and 18 top 5 finishes in that stretch. That puts him at a 50% chance at a top 5 finish. That's fantasy gold people. His stage point totals are also pretty impressive with two stage wins, and in 20 stages run, Kevin has only missed out on points four times. Barring any incidents in practice, the four car will make my lineup for sure. And another driver to consider for your lineup is the 9 car of chase Elliott. He's got one win at Phoenix in 12 tries. He's led almost 500 laps and has one pole and racked up quite impressive amount of stage points. In ten races, Chase has collected stage points 18 times and won the stage twice. That's pretty impressive stuff. All right and moving on to the third pick of the week Kyle Busch in the 18 car has pretty impressive numbers here at Phoenix. He's had 33 races at the track bringing home three trophies and 23 top ten finishes in that period. That's like a 70% chance at a top ten for your fantasy lineup, which could come with big points. In the 20 stages run, Kyle has three stage wins, and like the 9 team has collected points in all but two tries. And with the run the 18 team put together last week in Las Vegas, it shows their on point and should be a threat to win at Phoenix on Sunday. Okay folks, I hope that gives you a little bit something to work with for this weekend's race at Phoenix. Don't go shooting off all your big guns all on the first few races you'll want to stretch out. Your picks, try not to put too many a listers in there at one time. Mix it up with bees and seeds. You want to stretch out the season. That's this week's tip. All right guys, thanks again for listening to the final app weekly fantasy update. This is roddy dragon. I'll be back next week with your picks for Atlanta Motor Speedway. Thanks, and bye for now. There you have your fantasy picks from rowdy dragon big surprise, Kevin Harvick makes his list. Well, I mean, I'm not gonna put Harvey come on. No? No. I'm gonna go against the trends here. I think Harvard has something to happen during the race. It's all suffer, and I prosper. All right, sounds good. You do what you do, and I'll keep catching you even though I'm a race behind. Yeah, man, you've really made some strides in the last couple of weeks. Just think if I had actually put something in for Daytona. Yeah, anything. You can put anything in. Michael McDowell, for instance. Yeah. I mean, that would actually have been pretty good. He finished good at Daytona. See? All right, so there you have it. Checkered flag is flying on this show. This has been the final app weekly catches next week right here. When we will recap the racing, the fun, fabulous, fantastic Phoenix, and preview I tried. Atlanta. Preview. At all the stories are between Toby, you and I will chat next week. You're headed to the racetrack, right? Yeah..

"Go to your supplier at the track and buy one from there and put it in your backup car. So the other issue is the supply chain issues is they only had two backup cars for their four car teams. So you couldn't have Kyle Busch's seat already installed. You couldn't have Kyle Busch's pedals already installed. You couldn't have the wrap for the car already installed because you didn't know which team would need it. So all those things take time. And then you have the time of putting the motor in, putting all the transaction. All that stuff. So they pretty much built a car out of a shell in a day and got it back out there, had issues on the very first pit stop of the day with the shifter. But we're able to overcome that and almost won the race. Of course, the late caution kind of doomed that. And we talked about that length already, but it's just impressive to see what you can do with these next gen cars and how close they all are. Literally this car should not have been running a race. The day before, they put it all together, and it's right up there running for the win late at Las Vegas. So bring a car, some parts, extra rap, and there you go. Yeah, so the cool thing about next gen for you guys that don't know at home is the front and back clips, literally bolt onto the car. So if something goes wrong, you stuff it in the fence, either front or back, as long as you don't damage any of the components of the car that have to be there. You can literally unbolt that front clip on both that back clip, put a whole new clip back on. And then you got the body pieces that just snap right back on because it's all composite bodies. So you don't have to worry about sheet metal being bent in on stuff, having to cut things away. There's a lot of things that have really improved with this new with this new style of car because the teams can now really use that car that greenhouse area stays intact and you just plug new pieces onto it. So it's really, really cool to see. It's cool all the way around. I love this car so far. Loving what I see. Hey, let's look ahead to Phoenix. It's in the desert. Those cactuses are, in fact, real with the arms and stuff. And a few weeks back, nope, a few years back, that would have been funny. Phoenix underwent a $178 million modernization project. That seems low. I thought it was in the 400s. Maybe that was Daytona. Where virtually everything is still kind of new ish, I guess, sort of. Maybe they should redo it again. I like all these new fan experiences. All these tracks keep putting in Daytona I noticed was amazing when I was out there. I've been to the neon garage. You've been here to this Phoenix redo as well. That's awesome. And these fan spots are putting in these tracks are really, really cool. And I don't think you have this kind of access in any other kind of sport. There's like a whole outdoor bar hangout area right there at the start finish line, and the new start finish line. It's awesome. It's incredible. And the garages, you can walk around, they let you in the garages. There's areas that you can walk around and look at the crew chiefs eye to eye and tell them what they're doing wrong, and hey man. Exactly. It's not like Daytona or Vegas behind glass. You could literally walk in. I mean, you can't go into the NFL huddle and go tell Bill Belichick what he's doing wrong. Right. Yeah. Exactly. New media center for us, Wi-Fi everywhere. Garage's grandstands shifted over. Oh yeah, the start finish line, if you are new to the sport, it used to be in a different place and a more traditional kind of place. Now they put it in the middle of turns one and two. The start finish line. Right. So that used to be one and two is now turn four, turn three is now turn one turn four is now turned two, turn one is now turn three. I think all that's correct. You lost me now. I have no clue anymore. There's too much involved there. It's all jumbled. Cars go left, and we finish a race. You take the start finish line and you dive into the dog leg. Oh yeah, by the way, there's a dogleg. That sounds painful for the dog. Race number four of 36. It's no longer ISM, right? No, it's just famous. One mile oval, and it is so polarizing. Some drivers say it's a short track, some say it's not. It's not. It's not. But it's Martin Truex Junior, our guest from today's program, says it is. Well, that's cool, Martin. You're wrong. Well, he's a champion of the sport. I know, like I know anything. Banking ten to 11°.

"Why? That's right. Collective grown. You can hear across the country when Kyle Larson took the lead there coming out of the pits. It was looking for another win. It's over. It's done. He did come up one spot short this particular week, but man, he is just a contender. Everywhere. Yeah, even when it doesn't seem like even what it looks like he's like 5th to tenth somewhere in that range, they still find a way strategy wise to get them up there. Yeah. And he's got belts that'll come off the car and they still figure out a way to replace it on pit road. There he wins races. So he's a guy that you can't really count out no matter where he's at no matter what the situation is no matter how many laps down he is, unless he's out of the race, you can't count them out. So Kyle Larson, once again, shows that that he had a chance to win this thing. But like you said, came up one spot short. Final pit stop of the race. Two tires turns out was the good call because Alex Bowman nabs yet another win on strategy. And here is Alex Bowman. I was really surprised on the front row there. You just have to run so much throttle. And we had been free on the short run, pretty good on the long run. But I mean, I kind of feel like I know. Obviously a lot changed with this race car. But typically, two tires tighten you up a ton and we're on old tires earlier in the day, like cold, old tires, when we have that pit road issue, we came back down and put old tires on. I was super tight the whole run. I was just worried that we're going to be way too tight, but at that point you're on the front row, you got to drive it like it's going to stick and thankfully it stuck. And then Hendrick now getting two of the first three races of the year. How do you feel as an organization? I mean, it seems like you guys are kind of like the first to really take off with this car. Yeah, I mean, I think the 18 and the 19 were better than us at the end. If the caution doesn't come out, I think I was going to get the one, so probably finished third. But yeah, I think Hendrick motor sports is the depth of people and how good each and every person is there. Pays off and we're here with a new race car that has completely changed everything in our industry. From how they work on it, how they build it, everything I touch is different. The pedals, the shifter, the steering. Obviously, it's paying off how good everybody is at HMS. And I think we're in a pretty good spot. Man, Alex Bowman. That's crazy. 7th career win. In stereo. Yeah. First in Vegas, 282nd for Hendrick motor sports..

"You. This is really throwing people off with where these pedals are being mounted. So right. We'll have to see. We'll have to see how this goes. This is going to be a developing storyline, especially this week in Phoenix, where brakes are a must. So it'll be interesting. William Byron at number 5. And he needed this run. Oh my goodness, what a start to the season. He had had with crashes at Daytona and Auto Club and it was like, oh my gosh, William Byron went from a potential championship guy last year to now, wow, he's like 30th in points, so 5th place vaults in like 21st in the standings. I had great runs and stages one and two as well and had a chance at the win because he's one of the guys that took the two tires late. It didn't pan out, but he still finished 5th. So I think he'll take that. We'll talk about the windiness next in a few seconds here. But to Kyle Busch had the win in his sights until a late race caution thwarted the 18s chances. And I have to kind of feel bad for him because I know you're I know you're going to crucify me for this, but he had so many things they went through this week. He had the tire go down in practice back to the primary car on the wall. They couldn't repair the primary car because there was damage to the roof. So they had to actually pull out the backup car, which was not a backup car. It was just a parts car. They worked all day long, Saturday, getting it fixed. He started dead last in the race. The first pit stop of the race. They have issues with the shifter. It won't shift down. So they have to sit there on pit road after he worked his way to the top 15 to fix that, goes all the way back to the back again. Works his way all the way back up there, has this crazy battle with Martin Truex Junior for the race win. And then the caution with a few laps to go really ruins it all, but man, that's a tough pill to swallow. That's all impressive, but he's still got outsmarted, and that's the funny thing. No, I do agree with that. And at that point, you kind of have to just accept the hand you were dealt and accept the hand that you chose to play, but yeah, that seems pretty pretty bad. Whining is coming up in a second, Ross Chastain, this wasn't a mistake. This wasn't an accident. This wasn't a fluke. 78 laps led on the day. Yeah, Ross Chastain looked really good, and there was a sustained portion of this race. He won stage two, obviously. But there's a long sustained portion of the day where I was like, this is going to be a Ross Chastain win. Like, oh my goodness, this is, wow, and this is two weeks in a row, the track house has had a car contending for the win late in the race, so right. Just staying here in Vegas. So whatever they're doing over there at track house, it's working early in the season and they are really close to zeroing in on a win. It's mister worldwide. Yeah, worldwide. Why? Why? That's right. Collective grown. You can hear across the country when Kyle Larson took the lead there coming out of the pits. It.

Tj already hit the right side. Jack and at that point. I should know not to but obviously i wouldn't have broke the jack if i knew it was going to break the jack so i just didn't want to stop over the line.

"One of the big worries now for drivers heading into the cup series. Playoff is catching cove it in not being able to race which would in all likelihood and their championship aspirations nascar at this point is not forcing drivers to get vaccinated and martin true junior believes. That's the right thing to do other sports leagues doing that. You can't play if you don't get vaccinated so it's controversial subject. Obviously i'm happy with the route. Nascar steak and i think they're being smart as possible in the safest possible with one race left before the playoff against kyle larson leads denny. Hamlin by twenty eight points for the regular season championship. It's such a big prize. Larson admits it might have been the reason. He wound up third at michigan sunday. Instead of winning honestly probably decide points on my mind too much and cost myself a win. But i just didn't want to get in there and make too bold the move and make a mistake and iraq or or lose a bunch of points and positions because we really need to win that regular season championship. So instead of larson going to victory lane it was ryan blaney. Who hopes his second win of the year can boost his playoff chances atlanta's longtime ago and it's really good to start building momentum and then on the upslope you're going into the playoffs so huge momentum builder for everybody gets more points the sports business.

"Also getting pit service Chris Bush having a solid run here on the lead lap, everybody deciding that a fresh tires were so far so good. As far as the overall tired count goes, so let's put another set out. Martin Truex Jr Gonna win the battle of these cars out Joey Logano, Tyler Reddick like maybe Christopher Bell had a pretty good pit stop there as well as Chase Elliott. So that heat cycling the tires in and out, up and down on the cycles has the team stop. And to my count. This is the fifth set of 11 tires, 11 sets of tire self. These terms repeated. These teams that bid it easy for me to say have now bolted on their fifth set of the Goodyear Blue stripe radios. All right, stay right there. Steve Post. I'm coming right back to you. 16 cars came to pit road 17 of them. Are on the lead lap. Only one driver stayed on the race track. That was Denny Hamlin. Is that a mistake's do you think? What do you what your thoughts on that We're gonna have to wait and see as we talked about the heat cycles are one thing, but there's only four laps on these tires. So we're gonna learn what that heat cycle met with Denny Hamlin, and I don't know that it's a mistake. I didn't have my my scanner over on their channel to hear what the conversation was, but we're going to see what happens. Denny's had an awful good race car. Remember, He's ran second most of this race to Martin Truex Jr. So he's gonna have that track position and we're gonna learn a lot. Every crew chief will be making notes to see what then. Hamlin's car does over this run absolutely will, by the way, another speeding penalty being handed out this time to Christopher Bell. He gets busted too fast on exits of the pit lane so Christopher Bell will fall to the tail into the field as we work caution with 72 laps to go in the stage. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more. That's a serious student softball. What? It's actually Geico. Whenever someone hit a triple, we would waive.

"Back call off the playoffs in Copernican within the next eight he almost won the ruble last year. I think he's going to be a favorite going into Sunday at Charlie. I give him a better chance of sweep the round in the win the next eight. How about that I mean it's the nineteen we've seen all year? They were a little cool to start earthy year. They figured it out at Richmond went on to win for the next seven got a little cool again now. They're heating backup. This is surprising the first time in his career he's gone back to back which shocks shocks me but I think the significance really is that if you go back to the beginning of the playoffs he was the guy a little behind in playoff points which really is the key in round eight and around twelve and what these two wins do as fill that bucket up and I think that will come into play at some point in the next couple around so I do expect them to be aggressive at the wroval and try to fill that bucket a little bit
