"When you left Richard childress racing kept the TV off kept herself busy at home and all that eventually though when you started to work your way back into it, as you said, you did some TV stuff when you Started to kind of turn the TV back on and started to pay attention. Again, what was it like to have that different view because now you're out of the garage. Now you're out of the bubble of your team, your company when you now all of a sudden were out of that bubble and looking at things differently with a much different view what was your reaction? What was the? Feeling suddenly when you're looking at NASCAR and a completely different way sitting on the pillbox is the one thing that I truly honestly about NASCAR, racing because when a throw the green flag to start the race on Sunday, you not worried about wind tunnel report not worried about HR lady getting on your case for something you didn't do or not having something done at time you don't worry. About nothing about performance. That's all you worry about when I like. You don't worry about how much you make. You don't care about anything but winning races. So I've always told my people look when they throw the green flag. If I, Piss you off during the race, just take it because we'll talk about it after the race but from green-flagged chequered flag, it's all about per folds and. It was kind of funny. But when I wasn't really going to the racetrack and I was just not working I was watching races and I would drive my wife crazy because of what the hell they get into tires shoot advert four on overstay out you know I was actually being a the coach crew chief you know and I was driving my wife crazy. She's like when you just shut up, let them do their jobs but I get how competitive it is when people sit home and tried to be crew cheese but I assure you being crew chief. It is probably one of the hardest jobs in motorsports by far. It's really tough and I've had a couple people that have worked for me over the years that have become crew cheese that have come back to me and they're like holy crap I didn't realize it took this much effort to do this job. We always took it for granted at. Easiest job in the garage, and once they finally get handed the keys, they realized that it's probably not the best job at all. Well explain for folks why that is I mean obviously things have changed dramatically through the years but when you were a crew chief for so many years whether it was Michael Waltrip..

Waltrip memoir is especially about his relationship with dale earnhardt and it is also very much about the two thousand one daytona tone of five hundred which was such a consequential and tragic event and also at the same time a triumph for michael waltrip and it is a pleasure to welcome to the sporting life michael waltrip michael. Thank you for being with us. Appreciate you have how the going and <hes> great inner touch. You couldn't upset better well. I i appreciate that thank you and i gotta say you know your story. There is so much there is so compelling. It's it's not just about obviously what happened two thousand one in daytona your whole story up to that point having never wanna race in more than four hundred attempts up up to that point in what came together that day what transpired as you saying 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 the relationship that i had with dale and the belief that he he had in me and he believed that if i drove for him i could win. Despite the fact that i've lost more races than any nascar races are ever ever had and then had one so the crazy thing is i woke up february eighteen thousand one and i told my family told my friends. I said they beat me today. I woke up with that attitude. Despite the fact i've lost all those races because that's where dale earnhardt had me mentally yeah me a car. I knew i could win in and he believed i could win and i woke up that morning thinking i was going to win and the wind was awesome took the checkered flag and then of course a half hour later learned that what i thought was best day in my career or not be probably the worse of course you're talking 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 was interesting as is a competitor racer got too big. I couldn't wait to hug my wife and my daughters and celebrate with my team and the thing that i look most forward to was dale. I'm into victory lane and giving me a hug. A big hug had seen they'll win. His first cup raced texas in the spring of two thousand and they'll do got that help dad knew that hug was coming and i kept looking at the gate into victory lane thinking wednesday all gonna get here wednesday all coming and <hes> as time passed and he didn't show up again to get more and more concern like what's wrong with dell here and you know nobody really knew they just he's been in an accident and even probably getting out of the care sooner and that's what i believe that's what i thought and i have a friend that raced in that race that day actually in the wreck with dale and his name this kenny schrader kenny came into victory lane and he grabbed me and he looked you look sad. He looks like follow him. Which was crazy crazy. 'cause i thought he'd be so happy for me and i looked at i mean we joke around a lot. I looked better not kidding. Bat bad that i wanted to five hundred is it and he said mike is bad. I just want you to know wants to be prepared. It's bad and <hes> he's dale's not good and he left lane and then you know i just i just i didn't know what that meant but i didn't like what i heard and eventually <hes> you know was was was told that dale has died in that crash on the last flat. We're speaking with michael waltrip who won that two thousand one daytona five hundred consequential race in so many ways as we've already described a a tragedy <hes> up to that point in your career. You were thirty eight years old. When you won that race. You would never wanna race as i said earlier more than four hundred attempts to do so you were kind of the quintessential nascar journeymen and many people knew you mostly as daryl's little brother <hes> how did your relationship relationship with dale earnhardt flourish one of the great figures in the sport obviously well. I think that's that's an interesting part of the story. So when i moved to north carolina i moved in with richard petty <hes> i was there was little brother like said their lives in tennessee and and he didn't really help me <hes> get to north carolina honor get into nascar that much. I think my brother's philosophy was. I'm winning races. I made your last name means something in this world figure it out on your own that that was daryl's attitudes and so that's what i was trying to do and that's what i did but doing it man that getting north carolina airline through a couple of acquaintances <hes> i moved in with richard petty richard petty suggested that i go nascar racing don't mess around with a little league go okay and that's what i did and then in doing so <hes> and being in a car racer i think dale earnhardt appreciated the fact that that was his big. My big brother didn't pay me the keys family card. You know they brothers did figure it out. I did and in doing so <hes> <hes> i think dallas spot. I think they all thought that was pretty cool that i was able to work it out and we became buddies and he always told me <hes> all all throughout the year you get in my car but he win. You would win and one of my cars. I was like well damn late two thousand. He said <hes> i figured it out. I want you to drive for me and the three or four months leading up to the two thousand dollars would probably be great career moments in my life just going to the shop and listening to dale talking to them about how we were going to win races and that was that was something i'll never forget and and i i just couldn't wait not only to win but i wanted to lose our lose a race and then have they'll say here's how we're going to win the next one and <hes> you know i went. I went one for one driving for dale. And of course i didn't get to speak with michael waltrip ship the new documentary based on his memoir written in two thousand eleven the documentaries coming out <hes> in september is in the blink of an eye hi and it tells the remarkable story of his career his life his friendship with his mentor dale earnhardt <hes> and of course his victory at the daytona five hundred in february two thousand one michael that that moment that blink of an eye as you put it so so much changed for you <hes> your career <hes> reputation in the sport <hes> your boss was no longer alive live <hes>. How did you move on from that moment well. I didn't move on well for a few months. <hes> i really i didn't. I didn't process everything that happened very well. Not i don't think i don't think anybody should be surprised by that. It was certainly <hes> <hes> a difficult time in my life and <hes> think about this jeremy. I went to the race track. Losing all those races in a row and the next place i want to be was the race track. I wanted to get back in prague in and then after winning the two thousand one daytona five hundred and losing dale. You know i just didn't really want that'd be at the racist that that that didn't that's not where my mind was mentally. I was a mess and <hes> you know eventually the two two thousand one returned today toner the july race <hes> in daytona it looms and i told my wife i told my family i said i'm i'm gonna go get revenge. I'm gonna i'm gonna go get my payback on that place. I'm gonna win that race and while i didn't win two thousand one race in july junior in iran one <music> we celebrate it in our cars and the infield maybe one of the best victory celebration in the history of nascar <hes> a hundred and eighty thousand fans in stand cheering loudly about accomplishing wants to finish that race didn't kill me obviously nothing we'll ever fix what went on in february but it certainly rejuvenated my energy and my <hes> my desire to raise the car and <hes> and and so i just moved forward and i really never talked too much about what happened in daytona wrote the book and and eleven and <hes> and now having the documentary migori of being able to share the story with with the world. It's just a it's a chance for me to honour dale and that's exactly what what my desire is. How need that day change the sport well certainly on our heels for a while and it also gave us a chance to <hes> look at the safety of the cars and how we can make them safer racers wanted to be a part of nascar and interestingly enough. I offspring during that time or friends of mine in the last year prior to dale's fresh at died and you know we were as a family as a dad. We were dealing with that. How can we raise safely and what's going on in our sport. Fortunately no one has died since think about that. I mean no one one since sale passed in two thousand one in the big series of mass far has lost their lives amazing everything about what we did what we do <hes> improve and it was in the work. You know we we obviously as an industry. We're like okay. This is dangerous. We gotta figure out how to keep our driver's or stars. Stars are racist safer and <hes> fails sales. Death certainly put an exclamation point on that and i think a a lot of the safety initiative ramped up and we were able to <hes> help drivers sit ball tap process and not getting into speaking with michael waltrip. He won the great american race in two thousand one. He is a commentator covering the sport for fox sports. <hes> you'll michael there was a moment <hes> and it lasted for a while. It was a long moment if you will were nascar was <hes> really in the ascendancy in popular culture in the sporting mainstream in this country and it seems perhaps to repeat <hes> you know the issues better than i do. Some of the ratings issues attendance issues and competitiveness business issues <hes>. How do you assess the state of nascar right now. It's kicking back. If a thousand one <hes> is long past and and arguably two thousand say six or seven we peak and recently <hes> they started to go in a different direction and the rate at bristol is a great example of that nearly a hundred thousand people in stand cheering green great racing on his back so i think as a whole things are heading in a great direction. The the ratings are up addicts. The attendance is up the energy. The excitement everything is is going in the right direction for nascar in two thousand nine hundred these days michael. We're speaking speak with michael waltrip of course who won the daytona.

"Then fine you don't. I want to do it but stop eating snack wells and drinking diet right. That's not a diet. That's not health. This is a version of that. I get it everyone one once cake. That's not a diet and you removing. The calories from cake doesn't work right. You just have to fuck and do it. There's no different in this part of life and in diet. There's no difference your loud cheap days but overall big picture you gotta exercise you gotta change your diet and you can't fuck and walk around bounded you can't you're not going to outsmart nature on a percent. That's funny. You should say nature because a lot of people go like sometimes when i'm doing interviews or talking to the people about what it takes to be the best they always push back and they go oh. That's too hard or that. I go. You know how it's so much easier to be the best in the world world at what you do then to be mediocre because you're actually made that way. Mother nature made you you won the first race you ever entered you know against three hundred million one odds you outswim all those abolished firm born number one and now you're born into a world where we're supposed to accept mediocrity. It's much. It's harder to be mediocre than it is to be. The best it's how were made and now we got invent whole language and whole lifestyle to fulfil are mediocre lifestyle now instead of just aiming to be the best which is what we were born to do in the first place it's so much more natural it's so much going with mother nature chur instead of flying in the face with her which our whole society which most men do they just fly directly in the face of their own nature and pretend that they're mediocre and pretend that they're like half fast and even even the people i respect the most like a true competitor which i would think would-be an elite athlete or a race car driver or gymnast but elite athlete and when i start to see them beg for victimhood or try to get attention by being a victim instead of a competitor or be not wanna be a competitor. Not wanna compete like if you notice notice if you watch the n._b._a. For example you notice how these guys are supposed to be the ultimate competitors and what they actually do is is not compete. They join the same team. They don't wanna sell. I like in my day in your day. When you got larry bird and magic johnson and kobe and jordan you'd think those guys would ever join each other. They wanna kill each other. They want to compete and here goes basketball. The ball goes straight up. Basketball goes straight down because hey let's be chun's. Let's ask less of ourselves and not compete so much. Enjoin join altogether so we can win. Fake you can work as hard you work. You have to your demanding less of yourself which is unheard of in the athletic world yet. That's what our greatest athletes are doing right now. Which is why i wrote the book that's bullshit that they will not compete. There's a chapter during their. That's called re compete with to learn how to compete again and know that it's not a bad word. I mean how many yeah the competition i. I was around when this started right guests who doesn't like competition lazy fucking losers and they've decided the competition was basically synonymous with aggression and that so here's how you if you're headed to build a bridge when you're lazy fucking loser. I come come from these people. They go ahead of people. Oh that's aggressive a we don't want our boys to be aggression negative. We don't want to be aggressive. Tone it down tone it down so so when you tone down the aggressiveness also lose the competition and then we're all sitting in the same do the sport goes down. A manhood goes goes down. If there's no competition there's like i always i find that funny. Sometimes when businesses hire you and go you have to sign a non-competing. You can't comp- i'm like don't we live in america where we compete valet. Everything gets better and i always say. Don't you're asking competitor not to compete. That's fine line of work all right all right. Look turning turning any creature into a victim. You turn earn anybody into a victim you of hobbled that person. You've you might as well give them cancer. You have injured that person. You've done.

"That boy and i said that boys my son and i told him don't let the ball touch the ground and they go. How could you whoa what who are you to say that god to this boy and i go that boys. My son and i say that because that's a rule in our house we don't let the ball touch touch the ground and they're like how would that. How could that be a rule in your house. I go to rule in my house because it was a rule in my house. When i was growing growing up my dad my dad got football every christmas right so if you have to catch that ball and throw that ball thousand times a day you don't you don't let it touch the ground because it's not going to last till next christmas and we weren't getting a new one so me and my brother figured out that if he threw it and i caught it and it never touched the ground for a year a year it would we'd get a new football christmas which then if you think about. It took us all the way to the n._f._l. My brother you know quarterback first round pick to new england and mia safety who has to catch the ball to the houston oilers. That's how it worked out and here's what's so crazy about it. That's a rule in my house house now like that's. I raised my kids. Just what that kind of standard which is a lot of a lot of what i've done with my kids and what was done with me is is is in the book. Actually my dad had a rule which is he had a wallet.

"A lot of those games really were one. I'm quite there was a very key play when the patriots won their first super bowl where brady got the ball and score was tied. It was kind of like the game yeah end of the games like maybe take a knee and madden was advocating them to go to overtime go to o._t. See if you can win the coin toss or whatever and they through like a swing pass a someone and they're back. It was during the era and i still think they're doing it now. Where if you don't get out of bounds sounds like really out of bounds arrest just winding this wine that clock and they threw a little check down past and the guy really didn't get out of bounds and the raff should have done the wine that it keep they're cutting off the clock kept going they probably would have just spiked it or taking a knee or whatever but the ref said outbound stop the clock and then they got a it was a big learning about kevin faulk. I remember game really well because new england ruining for tom brady brady at the time wasn't brady right brady was the second string quarterback drew brees went well. I'm sorry <hes> the first string quarterback went down and game too. He obviously got him there but come on this guy was looking look first year starter. The guts ballot check had let him be aggressive late. They're great coaching. Call seconds think at the seattle game every coach in football football from high school the n._f._l. Would call a time out when there was like thirty seconds. I've seattle was on the two and ballot check looked over and said. They don't look like they know the play. Hey he didn't call the time out. Seattle got nervous through the interception. No one else does abbott ballot. Check all right r._j. Picks my friend all right the baltimore ravens. I just said that was a line move. I don't like play in line news. 'cause i like value right. Someone else got it cheaper. I hate that i'm buying it now. Still this one trump's all that baltimore minus six and a half two reasons each sentence miami. Yes they've been gutted. Talent lies but i think the tunsil trade it happened in the last week or so emotionally was a gut punch. He was a team leader. It will take a game a._m. Or two to get over that on the other side baltimore lamar jackson. I am not optimistic pessimistic long-term two three years from now now but you gave horrible the coach baltimore the entire offseason the come up with trick plays for the running that they do. They're running down more than any team in in the last forty years baltimore. He's gonna have a couple of trick plays for each of the first two three four five teams. I think baltimore looks a lot better early the season than they do later when the schemes catch up pick number one baltimore favored by six and a half i we're in a hurry r._j..

"Nine. After it crashed interesting i never thought about the lead up and the difference between week one week six seven argest short guys on the super bowl like right away or i'm imagining they bet on it when the line comes out because the line will then move a pointer whatever it moves yeah so great question. There's two ways to the super bowl early. Only one of them's really viable and it's not that good meaning. The value isn't isn't there. It's the typical futures right so that's what you hear about. All the time on the sports talk shows. Let's say that are not necessarily gambling show so they don't really you know what they're talking about but they're using the odds and that's cool right so right now. The future odds for the super bowl and this is surprising the entire summer are the patriots were favored the cheese her second. She's overtaken the patriots. At this point kansas city the super bowl favor seven to one john patriots a little bit more than the like <hes> seven and a half to one you could say then there's drop the saints eleven to one the the eagles twelve to one the local l._a. Rams thirteen to one the local chargers fourteen to one so kansas city new england saints eagles rams chargers are the favor now. I surprised to hear the charge on r._j. I'm surprised the chargers are this right behind. The rams have a good year gary. Look you know adam. I gotta tell ya if you would've asked me just a random week of the last five n._f._l. So seasons who's the most underrated team who's the team. That's better than their record. Charges would have been the answer to that more times in the last five years than any team and it's not even close. The question is what point do we figure the things we think are lock like losing close games missing field goals ballot. Check those things that chargers no matter who the coaches seems to do them a bunch. Is that just bad luck over five years or or is there an intangible people. It's hurting the chargers late in games. 'cause they lose a lot of close games. Well i mean it always breaks down to that. I mean the team that has won the most close games are the patriots over the last five years and the chargers have squandered away a million bad losses if you if you sort of backed those close losses versus close winds out of the equation it probably have the same record over the last five years so you're you know something probably not in that case but let's just say this other than the patriots. I'm not sure there's another team that the chargers would have been inferior to record wise if they had one. Let's say as many close those ones as they lost if they flip that the lock they be as good as any team except maybe the pages i agree also patriots. I hate to kick a dead horse here but <music> who happens where it's like. It's the end of the super bowl. There's talk. Eleven twelve minutes left on the clock. I'm sitting there as a half drunk. Grants james fan and we're going my god. It's three three. It's this discourse tied with the patriots everything. The rams haven't played for shit the whole game. I'm just it's three. It's tied three three..

I will say they know because i watched blink of an eye the doc it's it's really i mean you wanna talk about a crazy story michael waltrip his brother's probably more famous darrell waltrip waltrip nascar kind of legend from eighties nineties before michael is kind of funny unassuming kind of guy <hes> <hes> who was a good race car driver but he had gone four hundred sixty two races without a win then the biggest race of the year's daytona five hundred he then gets gets basically befriended by dale earnhardt and dale earnhardt believes in him. He's like you've lost four hundred. I'm fifty four hundred sixty. Two races didn't lose but he didn't didn't win. Come in i in four hundred sixty two starts. It's a lot of races gina vena greta run tomatoes came here you i five through hold on. Somebody believed okay so they're in fact it's just not so i wanna hear about your trials and tribulations because somebody tweeted me a funny rich man poor man too but dale earnhardt believes in in dale's intimidator dale's doing all the winning and dale says i want you to drive for my i team so he becomes a team member for dale. Earnhardt earnhardt like likes what he sees in the kid or something obviously is delicate result but you can see you can drive or something knows he can drive. I think the feeling is if he had the right equipment. Maybe he could win. Then on the biggest yes race of the year. Michael waltrip wins the daytona five hundred with with that dale earnhardt behind him. Obviously he's his teammate. I don't know in our internet's down. I can't remember just came back. I don't know if it was the last lap or close to the end of the race. There's an accident dale. Earnhardt is involved with the accident accident. Michael waltrip is up on the podium in winner's circle for the first time ever the biggest win of his career in the biggest way. Wait i mean talking about your first way winning talladega. It'd be fine but winning the daytona five hundred the biggest on on the year scheduled the biggest race you win. You're up on the podium and some guy is whispering in your ear dale's debt. Oh that was yeah. Ah like what does jesus you're standing up on this race spray champagne and now he was in mutilation. They're saying they're not saying. It's bad like they're saying yeah dale or dale earnhardt. It's bad is basically what they're telling him like like up on the podium. It was on the last lap or almost the last lap or something like that. It was like yeah the very end of the race lament. Let me double check but i do. I do remember remember in the documentary that he's going to blink of an eye. He does talk about in the first five minutes about having to hear that on the poor.

Talking off the coffin he was describing the how he got, to NASCAR because Brandon what's gonna ask him about his career and. How he just his boss at his job in, the auto, shop or BodyShop that he worked at started building like a. Street stock and invited Clinton go out with them next thing you know clint's behind the wheel and, then, five years. Later Richard Childress has. Calling him to come from, the Cup series and at first Clinton didn't believe him didn't believe it was Richard shoulders. He thought it was one of his buddies playing a prank on him but no it turned out it was actually Richard Childress and that of course led to him driving in what is now the series. And the Cup series starting with that that, zero seven Jack Daniels car and then moving on to, a other sponsors, you know he had to general mills. On the car at, one point and then Michael Waltrip racing and. That kind of soured after. The whole Richmond debacle and then he kind of had a tough, it out for a season before he To Stewart Haas racing last year. And finally get back with a major team last. Year they were getting acclimated and you're going to hear more, about this from Clinton just a minute but now this year they're firing on all cylinders he's got two wins martinsville and the rain shortened race at Michigan and he is you know in the top ten in points. In already, sewed up, sewn up a spot for the playoffs so it's, the return resurgence of Boyer here in two thousand eighteen in. The Cup series but enough of me talking about it let's go to. The tape and this is myself and Clint Blair chatting inside the bills. Meeting room, Thursday here on a fast track how much different is it feel, this part of the season this year compared maybe last couple of years well it just feels good you know, to finally get, to where I thought we were you know. Headed last, year when I saw it on with Stewart Haas racing last, year was just it was obviously frustrating but there was there was a lot of. Good runs but there was just way too many you know valleys with those peaks We overcame a lot last year glad to learn, a lot a new manufacturer and everything. That went into that that's not an excuse it was just a huge eye-opener for me, I've never, been at an organization that went. Through a change in Iranian facture usually every time you walk in the door somewhere whether it be are? CR, my first and my. Career or or MWR or or now you know anywhere literally, they were, already established way down the road with the manufacturer the, communication the the the database everything, that you do that, the tools that we use to find speed on the, race track was already established so that, was a, huge entertaining for everybody Austrade seeing and and I think, that year under our belts, and then learning and putting that all the good news is finally shown, up in, a big way they share with not only one car but, all at, cars run, Runwell Watkins, Glen where does that ring for you you got four top tens your last six starts where does that rank. On your list of tracks on the circuit Sonoma's probably one of my? Best tracks and naturally you. Head off into Watkins. Glen with a handful of confidence thinking I got him you know I'm, going to, dominate, at Watkins Glen hasn't been the case for me, I struggle more walk ins going than I. Do at, cinema faster race tracking you know it's it's been repaved grip levels a little. Bit different, but I think it's just that pace difference you know sonoma's kind of finesse short-track. Type feel and in Watkins Glen is wide open you know throw it off in a corner as hard as you can't be good. Under braking You, know difference. Than, than sonoma's so there's just like sonoma's there's parts of that racetrack. You got to hone in and focus on a? Practice and be good at up. Through the SS the mass part.
