"And so think i've kelly. I can't remember a specific case of someone being mad at me. But i know there were some over the years all these years later. Like i said you've put in twenty five years now on. Tv started all the way back in two thousand four. What do you enjoy about tv and broadcast work. And this side of the sport just continuing to be a participant if you will in sport started racing cup in nineteen eighty five and all the way till today. There's been a reason a really good reason for me to pay close attention to what's going on when i my last raced in seventeen if i wasn't a tv guy could just casually watch the race and cool but now every race. I watch i either physically take notes or make mental notes about something. I saw something happened. That i think make for good. Tv and then the second. Half of the year guests on the box hub. Show in able to share those thoughts. So i think just being in baugh being a part of the sports still that means the world's need has been my life since i was born basically. His mother was sixteen years old and watching him race his car and and wanting to be disliked. My brother and i grew up. It's really cool to still have the reason to still have a purpose if you will in our sport which is to tell stories in hopefully entertain people. Well we're recording. Of course for my podcast and i was looking around. And i haven't seen waltrip unfiltered in a while. Any plans to do more of your podcast. You know every now and then think about stories to tell things to do. So maybe we'll do a couple episodes at some point but finished up last year. Just didn't really get running this year. But i still have those stories. So thank you for letting me come on. Your cloud ashton share those. It's really funded. Talk racing and i'm looking forward to being on tv and a couple of weeks that some time off the trucks. But i'm going to visit the hub a couple of times the next few weeks between racing and doing some tv and way low golf every now. And then i haven't done a podcast while we'll do another one sees between doing tv and doing the podcast. Is it weird to go from talking to drivers for years as a fellow driver or a friend to now doing it in an interview setting. Was there any adjustment there. you know. I was really surprised at how much joy bat you know getting almost any time. I've done anything you know. It's like coming to the thirty seconds..

"To me in rehearsal is i'll say all this stuff and then it'll be the we go live for the tv show in order to come part and then i can't remember if i've already said that partner show or if it said that part rehearsal so it it gives me a little bit confused sometimes so luckily the folks at fox understand my complexities and what all's going on up here and i constantly have somebody in my ear saying okay. This is when you're gonna talk about kyle and kurt okay. This is when you're going to talk about the way the race finished out there. Always helping me so it's teamwork we have earpieces and there's a lot of stuff that's coming in this year. That sometimes comes in this ear and goes out of his mouth other times. It comes in and goes out that era. I didn't work for me that moment. But it's always entertaining and i'm telling you when the show is over it's almost like a racist over because you wanna be the best you can be and you want to give it all you have and you you wanna sort of be almost out of energy when it's over so that you knew you gave it all you had and that's what i try to do anytime i go do the hub or anytime i do any. Tv stuff will after. So many years of having spotter and crew chief in probably other people in your ear to have producers tv people in your ear couldn't have been that bad of adjustment. I'm sure it's weird but in a way it's kind of the same thing as what you're used to in racecar can be telling a and they could be talking to me and i. I know that's something that's a little bit different you know. We were real fortunate at fox that somebody had the idea that adam could be the play by play analyst and we would bring in puck guys and that started out a few years back and now basically the cup guys can do host show on their own or whoever we get for commentators..

"It was like a stroll down memory lane for me because Most all six tracks every staff but it was back in the eighties or nineties. So i didn't really see that coming. I just thought i was to go hang in outrace a little bit but when i got to stafford i remember. I've been here before. But i don't remember when it was and then someone comes up with a picture for me in like nineteen ninety-one racing a late model there and then a lead that race and i iran. Well i guess overall. It was fun because i was enjoying the company. Get into thing. Around and chit chat with bobby and bill and healthy felt like oh towns. You know when. I was a race driver. That's something i didn't really see coming through. S rx was iran. My last nascar race in seventeen the daytona five hundred and some not a race car driver anymore but when hanging around with those other guys is just talk and racing. It felt like i wasn't raised car driver. Memories are that's pretty cool the overall takeaway is you know. I wanted to do better. I lead a couple of races and was able to get up front. But i didn't have the results to that. Made me happy but the experience made me happen. Yeah i was gonna say you had told forbes a couple months ago before it started that you didn't wanna suck so i was gonna ask degrade yourself there. You said the results are what you wanted. But if you had to grade yourself overall racing against some of the best across all of motor sports how would you grade it. I was pretty happy with my performance. Especially the first two races stafford. We ran up front kind of got squeezed out and had some damage. Those indycar drivers some of them drive like the fenders for change. And then i got to thinking. Oh yeah they do. Maybe that's why they act like that Run into everybody. So that was a little frustrating but then went to knoxville. Was able to pass tony and take the lead. He's a dirt racing legend to be able to put some moves on him and to be upfront. Like i was that was pretty rewarding. And then after that you know. I really look forward to slinger because it's such a crazy race track and at a pretty good time race in its slinger and then of course nashville's all sorts of started for me. When i was a kid. I put on there. I'm talking in the seventies. You know. I would go watch my brother race and that crowd and just the memories. That it brought back to be nashville was really special. And i'm thinking that we're all the people that came out and attended in watched stuff enjoyed it so now. It's on to being the truck race in commentator. Something that's about as i got the race against haley and you know being able to watch her on on the track and talk about on tv. She's special. I think she's very talented. I enjoy her spirit. And i like watching a race and so i didn't really see getting to race against are coming at didn't know that was going to happen so now that have been able to race with her. It makes me look forward at much more to talk about her trucks. Did you have any moments. Mikey where you caught yourself saying. I'm racing against so and so because you mentioned you. Got to talk to bobby and race around bobby tony like the old days but were anyone else in the field that you caught yourself in anytime saying..

A little bit of everything so a lot of this conversation focuses on michael's media work also gonna talk about his brewing company and these six week stretch that he had with s rx over the summer and getting to be a driver again and i asked him if that kind of scratched an issue that was just laying under the surface of wanting to get back into a race car.

The Kodiak Chevrolet has not yet pitted. Norris Michael Waltrip so Michael would now be shown in the second spot. Kenny Wallace. On pit road the Dirt Devil. Pontiac will make his stopgap number three hundred six. Jeff happened to the crew taking care of things. There here comes schrader now. Kennedy will spit out the this lap. So what this moment. Michael Waltrip will take the lead. If he does not pit on he will not. Here comes the Pennzoil Pontiac out of turn four to Michael Waltrip leauge. Dale Earnhardt. Is that next in line about goals who've made pit stops at this point working green flak stops at lap number three hundred seven. Three hundred and seven laps are on the school board at the Budweiser five hundred here. This afternoon in a race that has seen a little bit of everything. The story of this race has been the wrecks today more cars. I think we've seen hit the wall and go to the garage area and we're having a long long time at any race track around the country. Bobby Labonte is out. Dick trickle has gone to the garage. Lakes beats been in and out Bobby Hill and junior as out dick trickle as we said has been back on the racetrack a couple of times during cope is out dude. An Accident Ernie.

Petty spent a lot of laps behind the wall and May Go back in there again. They Marcus out of the race. Phil Parsons Jeff. Gordon spent a lot of time in the garage area. Getting repairs made to his car and Pretty much the story of the race. The guys aren't up in the top. Ten or fifteen this afternoon half sustained quite a bit of damage to the cars. I guess there's at least seven or eight cars still out there running including Bret Boone. I was just making pit. Stop at a lot of sheet metal damage and different aspects of the car kind of torn up so to speak exactly right right now. Michael Waltrip leads that Dale earnhardt Rusty Wallace Davey Allison and rick mass. That is the running order at this moment lap. Three ten wants all these green flag pitstops complete even for those fellows who were a lap down. Who Will Give you a full rundown your top five right now. Michael Waltrip then. Dale earnhardt Rusty Wallace Davey. Allison Rick Mast. We go to wrote one thing to be a factor here. It would be maybe not insensible to start thinking that this thing could finish under green. Stranger things have happened department of already been going to have to stop at least twice more to stop for one regular stop. Then they're gonNA have to stop for gas now. They're a wall cars out there that have not yet ten lab. There's a possibility instructive send one more staff after they make that won. So they're gonNA pick one bill. Stop these guys be interesting to see if they can do gas. Mileage has been a factor in the in two of the last three races. If memory serves me right here I believe Harry. Gant won this race last year when he made one less fuel stop than everybody else. Dale earnhardt ran out of gas. I if I remember correct inaugural a few laps to go in the thing. And he was leading at the time. So fuel can play a big factor here at Dover. Bunches it can at Pocono will be next weekend. Three hundred and thirteen laps on the scoreboard. More pitstops be coming up shortly but for the moment. Michael Waltrip is the leader. While it's all been sorted out now after these green flag pitstops. Dale EARNHARDT has a lead of better than ten seconds. Nearly eleven seconds of an advantage on second place Rusty Wallace Davey Allison Third Bark Mark Fourth Rick Masters V. Let's take you further back so you know how your favorite driver is running on the lead lap and six this Dale Jarrett seven fiske. Ken schrader those seven cars at the only shovel cars off the lead lap trouble turned to hunt. Strickland goes spreading around the back straightaway backs into the outside wall. The car now turns around knows first of the three of the wall. About halfway down this backstretch. He was racing along with. Harry can gamble. Try to make a pass Bay of mates CONTAC- again the McDonald's or crash here on the back straightaway. Caution on the SPEEDWAY LAP. Three nineteen is when the yellow flag will come out. That's been the trouble spot over there. Today is turn number two and that will be the ninth one of the afternoon tenth one. That's a brand new track record. That's our tenth caution and the old record was nine Yeah Dr Tenth Caution and the old record was nine so I don't know what that's a dubious marker watt but it's a brand new track record here at Dover downs the most caution flags. We've seen the yellow quite a few times this afternoon and I hope we can raise this thing out under green but I got a feeling we won't be able to so we may see some cars duck in on pit road here in a moment. Even though quite a few of them were in earlier on their pitstop that were scheduled stops. Most of them have been made under the caution. This afternoon you'd think I said a moment ago that Dale Earnhardt ran out of gas last year. Jim Phillips corrected me. And it was Darrell Waltrip who ran out of gas. Those final aspect gas has been a factor here several times. Here's the McDonald's car on pit road and there is quite a bit of sheet metal damage to it as the crew comes over the wall Mike Hill and the rest of the McDonald's team to take a look at it. Let's cover his stop. Well he can still race. I think he's still hobble around is more forced to the Psalm because the the deck led a lot of it is still intact They're going to have trouble getting the fuel in the car. They're changing the right side tires right now but He's graze the back of the car. Pretty good so it's GonNa be kind of like the Bobby Labonte was while ago. Just to try to ride around and make some lapse into looks like Dale Earnhardt Leader is going to pit rusty. Wallace pit board out arrested made only fifteen laps. On his tires the EARNHARDT car pitted on lap. Two seventy nine. So he needs to fit right now so he comes into the pits as WANNA spiel in right behind him. And Davey Allison coming around. The Pimp Lane WanNA spikes his stock. They're going to change all four tires again. After only fifteen laps earnhardt grew. What the right side around the left side. Right now. The Strickland Cardi directly in front of our dark could pose a little bit of problem. But they get those left side tires. A second can of gasoline goes in for Chuck Meyer. He is down in a way rusty wallace away. Seventy Wallace stop. Take Brooks Navy. Allison is Just about to finish up with this tire. Chain as mark. Martin are both going to be dropped. Go Against Raiders in. They've got the right side down the left side up on his car and they'll have it changed a lot of strategy on these guys what they were doing while ago. A lot of folks for ASCII kind of curious as to why Davey allison might not have been penalized for spinning out on pit road just to go. We have been informed by an the Nascar booth over there that Davies spent started long before he got onto pit road. Coming out of turn number four for that speedy. Dr Been Spread up there. We've had a few accidents this afternoon. And that is the reason that he apparently he was not penalized. The spin started just as I came down on the Apron of the racetrack and hit the speedy dry. That had been dispersed up there throughout the afternoon. Three hundred and twenty one laps or on the board here in the Budweiser five hundred. This afternoon few more cars coming into the pits right now here. Is Jimmy Spencer? Back in Morgan shepherded bring his car in Jimmy. Hensley Harry gant rebelled. Who's been out there with a damaged car all day long? Geoff Bodine's brother right behind him. And Rick Wilson. Also in the pits. Let's go back to Jim. Phillips Rick Wilson is. They're they're getting off for tires on his. We talked a little bit earlier about the guy that The gas while Harry gant that's Terry Saturated with Brian. Buck our timmy. Bill Elliott got service. Darrell Waltrip Scott. His services on the way get evolve got service. He's on the way they're still working on. The Front of Jimmy Spencer's machine. He evidently got a piece of that. Action on the back straightaway. Terry Shelat engineer for General Motors. Who had been hired away by penske south racing and has been a major contributor to the success that Rusty Wallace on the Miller. Genuine draft teams had here in nineteen ninety three. Don't forget next weekend. We'll be in the beautiful pocono mountains of Pennsylvania for the running of the champion spark. Plug five hundred. This is the part of the schedule where we stayed north for awhile. Twelve fifteen eastern time. Next Sunday you'll hear the champion spark plug five hundred right here on. Mri radio our coverage from the poconos begins. Friday the push poll updates started three twenty eastern time Friday afternoon Saturday morning. We'll have a pit road preview for you at eleven thirty eastern time and again Sunday the champion five hundred ticket office open right now at the Poconos the Mattioli family will be happy to make you very comfortable up there and come up by join US next weekend.

The twenty and then the very next day the camel continental MCI event the three hour event there for the sleek and exotic sports cars or the International Motor Sports Association. That's coming up on June. The twenty seventh. You'll hear it right here on your local station. We are still under that. Caution won't go three hundred and twenty four laps around more. We're just looking at some of the cars. They cross underneath here while. We're running under caution. How many cars are out there with damage? A Harry gant still on the racetrack with damage on the car. Jeff Gordon Bill Elliott Brett Bonein. Bobby the body Dick Trickle Bob Dylan and hut strickland. Some of the cars that have anything from some serious sheet metal damage to some bit suspension parts on the car and a little bit of everything else. So it's been quite an unusual day here. We said if you want to broadcast late wrecks have been the story of this race today. It is eliminated an awful lot of good cars. Even though some of them are still out there running. They're certainly not in contention to win some of the drivers that we mentioned a moment ago that we're still running with suspension damage. Whatever number of laps down three twenty four on the board? Dale earnhardt being posted as leader. Rusty Wallace is second mark. Martin being shown in third right now fourth would be Davey Allison v Rick Mast six Dale Jarrett. He's had a good solid run all day long. Seventh Kenny schrader. The car for straighter has Been up to par so to speak. But he hasn't been able to get up in the top three or four yet but they continue to adjust on his car's getting stronger. Today goes by Michael Walters having a good solid run. He's currently is showing an eighth position. In ninth right. Now Darrell. Waltrip the driver that we told you about a moment ago. Don't hear a lot about Daryl in the early going in a race that Like Dover and Rockingham longer races he just kind of stays on the lead lap and makes adjustments on the car tries to figure out who's good and WHO's bad and whatever and if he's got anything left at the end he can be a factor real easy and one of the best rounds of the year for Rick Wilson and Richard Petty's car. He is currently shown in tenth position that SDP PONTIAC. Eleventh is Geoff. Bodine Twelfth is Harry.

"The sporting life if you were a fan of NASCAR you're familiar with the career and the achievements of Michael Waltrip if you're not a fan of NASCAR and if you're not familiar with Michael Waltrip you will soon have the opportunity to learn his remarkable story because new film is coming out it is called in the blink of an eye it is based on Michael Waltrip's memoir is especially about his relationship with Dale Earnhardt and it is also very much about the two thousand and one Daytona five hundred which was such a consequential and tragic event and also at the same time a triumph for Michael Waltrip and is a pleasure to welcome to the sporting life Michael Waltrip Michael thank you for being with us I appreciate your help me how they go in and great inner if you could have said it better well I I I appreciate that thank you and I got to say you know your story there is so much there is so compelling it's not just about obviously what happened in two thousand one in Daytona your whole story up to that point having never won a race and more than four hundred attempts up to that point and what came together that day what transpired as you say in the blink of an eye at the finish can you try to put it into words I can try and and that's what the documentary is all about trying to explain to folks the relationship that I had with Dale and the belief that he had in me if you believe that if I throw for him I could win despite the fact that I had lost more races the name NASCAR race there ever had and then had and then one one so. really thank your army is I woke up February eighteenth two thousand one and I told my family my friend I thank beat me today I woke up with that attitude. despite the fact I lost all our graces because that's where Dale Earnhardt had me mentally yeah me a car I knew I could win in if you believe that the land and I woke up that morning thinking I was going to win and the wind was awesome took the checkered flag and of course a half hour later I learned that what I thought was the best day in my career and not be probably the worst course you talk about the death of Dale Earnhardt at the end of that race how in the moment did you even begin to process everything that was going on Michael you know it's just a very interesting as a. had it really is a racer I got the big to Lana couldn't wait to hug my wife and my daughter. celebrate with my team and I think that'll most forward to was Dale I'm into victory lane and give me a hug. I think they'll get the win his first race of Texas in the spring of two thousand and they'll give you a bath that held from his dad and I knew that was coming and I okay. the gate in the victory lying thinking when they are going to get here when they're all coming and as time passed and we didn't sell it again get more learning like what's wrong bill here and we are not in decline really news they just make these been enacted in public getting checked out don't care center and. that's what I believe that's what I thought and I have a friend that race is not race that they've actually in the wreck with Dale and his name is Kenny Schrader. and Kenny came into victory lane and he grabbed me and he looked he looked sad you look like following which was crazy because I thought he'd be so happy for me and I looked at him and we joke around a lot I looked out of the giving back bad that I wanted people to five hundred is it. Mike as bad as what you now would you be prepared by. and he said there was not good. in the last fifty line and then you know I just I don't know what that meant but I didn't like what I heard and eventually are you know with with with told that they'll have a died in that crash on the last laugh speaking with Michael Waltrip one that two thousand one Daytona five hundred. consequential race in so many ways is we've already described the tragedy up to that point in your career you were thirty eight years old when you won that race you would never won a race as I said earlier more than four hundred attempts to do so you were kind of the quintessential NASCAR journeymen and many people do you mostly as Darrell's little brother. how did your relationship with Dale Earnhardt flourish one of the great figures in the sport obviously well I think that that's an interesting part of the story so when I moved to North Carolina I moved in with Richard Petty I was there a little brother like that but lived in Tennessee and and he didn't really help me get to North Carolina get in the NASCAR that. I think my brother's fall off the was on winning races I made your last name means something in this world figured out on your own that was that with their old attitudes and so that's what I was trying to do and that's what I did but doing it meant that getting in North Carolina. a couple of acquaintances I moved in with Richard Petty Richard Petty suggested that I go NASCAR race don't mess around with the little league okay. and that's what I did and then in doing so as being a NASCAR racer I think your heart appreciated the fact that you know is his big Big Brother didn't need to keep the family car you know a big brothers that figured out I did and in doing so I think they'll spot. I think they all thought that was pretty cool that I was able to work work it out and we became buddies and he always told me all throughout the years you get in my car but he don't win you're going to one of our cars. like all day on behalf of one of them. late two thousand he said a figure that out I want to drop the baby and this is the third of four months leading up to two thousand. follow the greatest career moments of my life just going to the shop and listening to Dale and talk. about how we were going to win races that was that was something I'll never forget and and I I I just couldn't wait not only to win but they don't but I wanted to lose hello all of blues away I don't have they'll say here's how we're going to win the next. and now I went I went one for one job for Dale and of course I got to get the doctor. Michael Waltrip about the new documentary based on his memoir in the blink of an eye we'll be back with more Michael Waltrip in a moment..

"I'm gonna go with Ryan Newman. Because. If you were paying attention, he got a punch eleven times by Clinton, the I don't know. I'm just going to assume that they did land. But, you know, he he got out of the car and everybody else watching thought it was fantastic. I mean, I know whenever there's fisticuffs, it just adds to the drama of the night. And it was just came out of nowhere because I don't think any of us were expecting it. But yeah, you never want somebody to come to your driver's side window and just start throwing haymakers. So that was probably not a great time for little room in this. Michael Waltrip in lake speed at Michigan speed was in the car. The car. That would different Michaels has a foot in the lot of reach lake reach Michael was standing in the middle of pit road reached over there. He wasn't even close to the car. All right cow. Give us your second good times, second good times. You don't what I honestly, I think my second, good times is going to be the store hosting. I think they think there's some speed there. I think they may have turned a little bit of a corner, you talk about. We were talking about Kevin Kansas, Kevin here having the fastest car at think that might be we've talked Penske organization. We've talked. Pinski we've talked Gibbs organization. Maybe this is a group that stepping into that realm right now the stepped up a little bit. So I think I sell some stuff or you could see the direction that they seem to be headed in a little bit. So I, I think Danny soya's did a good job. I know he spun himself trying to beat Bubba there at the end. But at the same time, I thought Daniel did a good job searching trying to figure out a way around him searching doing some stuff. I thought they had some solid races. All right. Alexa, sure second good time. My second good time is not a driver. It's Charlotte speedway. And the reason why I'm giving my good time to Charlotte Motor Speedway. Obviously, it was a fantastic event. Everybody was entertained, and everybody enjoyed it, but a specifically for one improvement that they implemented that we saw workout really well on Saturday night. And that's the astroturf I think a lot of cars went spinning through there, and we're able to continue on for the rest of the evening where, you know, years pass, if they would hit the grass, they would that split. They would have been tore up their night would have been over. So there was a lot of praise for Charlotte Motor Speedway after the race for putting that down. And I think even Steve O'Donnell said on siriusxm NASCAR radio that they may look at going to that at other tracks as long as it's feasible. So thank you just took away. One of my green. Fly black flags star. Here's what I'm going to say. Here's what I'm going to say. I do agree from a safety standpoint. Then the astroturf is huge huge stumps up. Huge sums up. But I'm sorry, it's kind of like playing golf. They call a sand trap hazard. You shouldn't be okay if you're in there you should have to pay some penalty for being in that hazard. Okay, if you're out in the grass, you should have to pay some penalty for being out the grass because you're not supposed to be out in the grass. For jaywalking, though, what capital? Yeah. Wouldn't J Rey fach? Is that what you're? Punishment the losing of running order and all that does not go just oh, school enough for us. There's asphalt and there's grass. But if we wanna play this from a safety perspective, it is huge. It is huge. Because it keeps those cars from digging keeps those cars from flipping if we go back to daytonas and some of those places where we saw remember when. I don't know retired. What was his name? Carl Edwards, Debbie Macron efforts was doing his burnout dug in just towards the front after the race. You know what I mean?.

"So basically, it's like, hey, if you come in and bring some cash or sponsors or whatever will put you in X car for the full season. And as a reward will put you in the Cup car couple of times, I would much rather see young drivers do that. Instead of what Joey gays has been trying to do which is by crappy rides in the Cup series and finished thirty third. But what else do, you know? Right. Like, they see this trend going, and they're going to be the ones that jump with it as well. I mean, granted mpm not the best in general but him running full Lexi's in there. Probably could mean they're not even great in the series either. I know, but you know, maybe it's a good thing. But it that that's where Joey gays should be right now. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. That's that's that's. There's like these young kids the whole NASCAR said that the model's broken the model's broken for the sheer fact that guys like Joey gays and Greg Alden can come in like little experience in a stock car of this size and get a ride. Yeah. It's absurd though. I mean in all honesty, even ride trick should be in the xfinity series right now. Oh, yeah. No. There's no reason. Why right? Sure is another castaway of the Michael Waltrip racing era. But it's like it's like almost you have you should be you should have to complete X cheer. Ryan tricks is twenty six but at the same time, he should clean complete an X amount of lower levels. Now before you jump up to the Cup level. Yeah. That I pitched many year ago when it comes to you have to you can't get into it unless unless you pass X amount. And then they used to that where you couldn't drive a super speedway unless you had a had so many is under your belt in the lower level. They wouldn't give you a they wouldn't give you license for those unless you had done a couple in the lower series. I that was the only one that's the only type of track that they would have that requirement for though, which is wicked dumb. It is it should be across the board that way you should have to have like a half season or something, you know, minus road course, I think road courses when you give a pass to maybe. Yeah. Yeah. That's it. But yeah. So that's what Joe gifts. The last story that have gotten less you have anything else. Die cast list came out, which I was super happy to see. I believe wasn't there. A preliminary list that came out like a couple of months back that we talked about. I think there was probably mid year yelich amid sees one or something like that it seems like it was two days ago. But it was it was a while ago. But then they released the top ten die-cast for two thousand eighteen end of the year. All in and done. Big shocker was man. Five of the top ten spots. Went to Bush. No, no, no. No. No. Well, what did chase Elliott? Yeah. No this kid this kid's he's rocket strapped to them. This is the this is the guy. This is the guy you go with and that's our then beyond that.

But you know, if it was playing be than we would have kept working on plan b and doing whatever we could to keep me in a race car throughout the year. But, you know, fortunately this worked out, and I honestly think it's going to be one of the best lessons I've ever been in my career not only for the tier, but hopefully for more years to come. We'll see and I'm just proud to work with everyone there, and hopefully go championship how strange or surreal does the whole silly season processing you now because you've been through this view times you were at Michael Waltrip racing win that whole thing blew up you were at red horse there for a while. And finally got into what appeared to be a good situation at Katori in that turns out to be stressful. And you guys are looking for looking for finances and you get to the end of the season. And even a championship is not necessarily good enough to keep you in your in your seat. How how insane is this whole process, man? It's crazy. Honestly, you know, like you mentioned. Been in this situation a few times, which is not a great thing. But I feel like with every time I've been in situations I've been able to learn and to grow from it. You know, ideally, I would not have to pay all these problems, but I have faith, and I've been fortunate enough how a lot of people macrey support me in the keep me diverted in the right direction when the adverse conditions come up, it inflated crazy out there right now on this super thankful that you know, those strategies are gone for the off season and time to get to work and prepare for the rates, please give us a little peak behind the scenes you win the championship.

And and they've expressed that they want to do and and moving forward, I think it discriminated great partnership between us all you're going to be in the twenty four Chevrolet rather than the twenty one. How did that number come about? Did you have a hand in picking that? And and who is your crew chief going to be Gary back through cheap. That's here which I'm really excited about never got for work directly weapons, but I've worked around him. That's like Walter day than a couple of other places stuff known him for a while looking forward actually working on a team within. But the number goes out of the GM decision was based off a couple of different things. But at the end of the day, the the twenty four retired in owner points in case, you know, any early season rainout tapping qualifying it's worth elite factor starting so I don't really put too much weight into what the number.
