Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK
"Well. Biontech and pfizer's landmark coronavirus vaccine has been given to the first person in the uk as part of a mass immunization program. The uk's vaccine roll it is being watched keenly across the rest of the world has other countries begin. Prepare to vaccinate their own populations for the latest on this. Let's talk to our health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith. Chris is also consultant for all the gist at cambridge university. I good afternoon. Chris tyler so i guess So far so good at least we have. We have a soundbite already. We had at the top of the program from this ninety year old woman. Who's been there the first to be to vaccinated chris last week. We saw a little bit of Chest thumping on the part of some politicians the uk saying look. This is great The uk is steaming ahead. How eagerly he would you say not. Just the immediate neighbors across this side of the channel but around the world are going to be watching. What are they going to watching. Forty you think over the coming days and weeks as this rolls out well think it will be a confidence boost to those other countries because no one likes to be i they unless it's a shorty. A dead cert. There's always some risk with any kind of intervention. And this is no different. So having a regulator a regulator that's world renowned the jewelry the medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency. Which is the. Uk's regulator which prior to just having jurisdiction over the uk walls prior to the brexit transition kicking providing that service for the whole of europe. Now europe does that through the ama it. It gives a precedent that other countries can look to and say right. Okay one fairly ferry. Big actor has gone ahead with this nathan. It's good therefore we're happy to Gives us some confidence too. So i think that there's always that aspect to it and it's coming good for the uk in the sense that it saying here we are. We've had a pretty rough time with this. But now some some fantastic triumph of sciences kicked in and we're about to start deploying this across the country and we're gonna we're gonna protect our outpatients. We have this type of approval from a respected Player how much do agencies elsewhere of course within the eu and obviously similar bodies all over the world. how much does it short circuit For them as you said. It establishes a precedent And does that mean that you have you know days or weeks then knocked off the process. Of course he. I'm sitting here in switzerland. Obviously a lot of talk as well about of course is also on the uk as well so does it actually then really prevent And and and and you do you have a moment where you have a real series of time locked off. They'd process well. The europeans are considering this through the jurisdiction of the ems the european medicines agency but the uk is still subject to a you know and in the uk is used one particular rule which is a regulation one seven four which is a specification for in public health crisis. Or emergency you can. Emergency approved something for use in your particular jurisdiction so the nhra has used that to approve this for the uk. Any other country in europe could've done the same thing so it's quite interesting that they've actually decided to white on a broad overarching decision from the a. But it doesn't matter. Who your regulator is they have to meet the same checks and balances. Because at the end of the day they all the gateway between a manufactured product and the public who going to receive it and it's on their neck that the decision rests so then going to say a will. They did it so we'll kind of ignore with this stuff would just sign it off. They are going to apply wherever they are in the world the same rigorous checks that they would apply whether or not someone else regulated something but it does help to give them confidence and he gives them a bit more political impetus when they see that. Another major regulator has taken a product which is also going to be wheeled out in that particular country and said well you know what's good enough is enough the ganda over the past few weeks. Of course astrazeneca moderna in this case. Biontech visor they. They've all been popping up in the headlines. Chris and of course various speeds that of course these approval processes have been working at now. We have three vaccines. We're we're now told her that there might also now be a fourth which is very much in play might be getting closer to approval. How different are all of these in terms of effectiveness and and do they all function largely the same way or do you. Also because obviously many countries that are hedging their purchasing all of them. Am i going to be particularly concerned. In a couple of weeks. If if i choose to get the moderna vaccine versus the astrazeneca versus the by pfizer one. In fact i think the uk has go options in on seven different vaccines and yes. You're right three of them are nearing the finishing nine in the uk but there are many others waiting in the wings around the world. There are ten different types of vaccine the work in ten different types of ways or being generated a more than forty and now in advanced stages of clinical trials. So pretty soon. We're going to have more vaccines than we can shake a stick at up to a point. That's a good thing and it's a good thing because not vaccines are going to be suitable for all people not vaccines are going to be available to all people not vaccines are going to work in all territories and what i mean by. That is if we take the fiso vaccine as an example. This needs to be kept at minus seventy degrees until five days or so before you're going to use all nine hundred and seventy five doses that are in batch and i've just seen a letter go from medical director saying can we make sure that we we use all nine hundred seventy five days in a within the five days so that we don't waste any of this very precious vaccine. Now that's going to be no use whatsoever in some countries where they don't even have a stable. Electricity supply let alone a stable minus eighty degrees freezer. So therefore having lots of options is a powerful thing also We don't know what the long term outcomes with these vaccines against be. We know that they provide pretty high level of protection but short after the vaccination program is finished in other words in in the weeks to a month or so. The person's completed the vaccine course. They're protected with the fis vaccine to the level of about nine hundred ninety five percent. But what happens in five months. What happens in a year. we don't know. And it may well be that other products that come along are able to confer a longer term protection. They might confer a big boost if you give one of those on top of one of the other products. This is a learning process. We're going to be sort of going through this process as time goes on an. It's always good to have more options. Where this sort of things concerned. If if your project yourselves twelve months twenty four months out do you think we also end up in a place because of because of cost because of stability many other things that they're only going to be potentially to vaccines. Is that the way things often go. The other ones might be effective but they might be too expensive as you said they might be too volatile and they fall by the wayside. I so i guess what i'm getting at. Will there sort of a clear winner in all of this in terms of one of the players and obviously the concoction that that ends up within the syringe. Well it's hard to say. I mean you know it's like niels bohr. Who is the forefather of quantum mechanics. Said prediction is very difficult especially when it concerns the future. But it's it's going to be very hard to know because we don't know what the long term outcome with these agencies. They are expensive. These genetic vaccines that pfizer. Madonna offering all pricey the astra zeneca vaccine. Which is still sitting with the regulator here in the uk. At the moment that one will be much cheaper and is also much easier to deploy and store so that there are pros and cons of all these things and it may not come down to simply a case if this one does this and this one does this therefore two horse race. I think we will definitely be a market for a few of these products whether or not. That market's going to be sufficient to sustain all forty plus of the clinical trials that are going on now but but certainly while the world is rushing to get this stuff in sufficient volume. Because that's the issue at the moment the companies just can't push it out the door fast enough the moment it's any partner storm so people are desperate to access whatever vaccine they can as fast as they can and just before we go chris any sense. When you're maybe discussing with your medica- medical call leaks. What the uptake is is going to be. I was talking to a doctor at the university hospital here in zurich the other day his defense was that you know probably just within the hospital owned probably fifty percent of the staff. You know would not be interested in taking the vaccine. Is that sort of a a pretty good gauge. In terms of how the public will look at this. Or if you're not in the medical trenches all day maybe you're going to be keener to take it any any house view from your side. I'm sensing quite a degree of what we dub vaccine hesitancy based on the questions that are coming into various radio programs on participating in basic enquiries from members of the general public and if you look at the day to this come out of the pew research center in america have been running a number of population surveys in the states and originally that was very alarming showed that fifty percent of people would reject a vaccine offered one at that point in time. They recently repeated that survey found that in fact the uptake had risen to fifty from fifty to sixty percents so in other words forty percent. Turn it down. But that's still forty percent. Turn down right now in the uk. We think it's probably going to be Less than that but at the same time still a significant proportion of people are uncertain citing rapid production very rapid approval. As a reason for concern. I do think this is largely going to take care of itself though because what will happen is that because of the way in which these vaccines are being rolled out to high priority high risk groups. I with a trickle down into the younger echo lonzo society over time by the time many of the people who live in countering who is saying. I'm nervous about this. Come to be offered a vaccine. It will have actually been through a very significant proportion of other people and that may well have in still quite a bit confidence into people are safe track record by then so i think it may be one of those short term problems. The actually takes care of itself. That's what i'm hoping anyway. Chris thanks very much for that. That was monocled health and science. Dr chris smith.
HIV Under the Microscope
"I this week there was cause for celebration as a covid. Vaccine became a regulator approved reality in the uk. All the time we've been waiting and hoping for the day when the searchlights of science would pick out invisible enemy. Give the pala to stop the enemy from making us ill. And now the scientists have done it and they used the virus itself to perform a kind of biological jujitsu and in fact because of that jujitsu the uk has become the focus of world media attention as the first western nation to formally approve corona virus vaccine for public use. Nevertheless some are questioning. Why britain's been able to move so fast according to the uk education secretary govern williamson. Speaking to see it's because we live in great britain. I just reckon we've got the very best people in this country and we've obviously got the best medical regulators much better than were french. Arab muslim belgians have much better than me americans. That doesn't surprise me at all because we're much better country than every single was okay but if that is actually true then what is that. We're better at in reality. The buck stops with a body called the nhra there. The medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency and down to them. That we've been able to approve sizes new coronavirus vaccine in record time and to explain what's involved what gaps still remain in our knowledge. And what is happening with the other major vaccine contender. The one being made by astrazeneca. His gino martini from the royal pharmaceutical society. Any new medicine has to be reviewed and tested the mitchell ray. The job is to inspect review. The data that's being generated so foams physical companies have to pay the testing. We'll clinical trials. Testing will phase one face to face free with effectively. The the medicine in this case. The vaccine is tested in human volunteers and subjects which representative while the population people. You're gonna begin the vaccine to create these clinical trials. The data's collected and the whole basis have put together a dossier and that's been reviewed by the shaarei in this case. What is the damage of being working in real time with manufacturers review the data in real time so that's why we've been able to get an accelerated. Is it as simple as that. Because what some people. Think quite legitimately appointing out is that normally. It takes ten years to make a drug or vaccine and get that to market. Which means by the time it gets there. You've got ten years in some cases of follow up from the first time a person was exposed to that drug to the time at which you begin to marketed. Here we've got ten months so we don't have that long term insight true. What's happening here. Is that the nhra actively viewing people being executed. So there's already assistant quotes called surveillance. And so they'll be muller shaking people. Boxing aged just in case there are any adverse events alba to understand. The nhra is a very very good regulatory agency. Got great expertise in looking out biological jokes. Vaccines whom the signing. What data is needed sensual. Quality and safety and of course efficacy. Interestingly though the nhra have approved this agent for uk use but the the european counterpart for the hr a have not approved this more. Broadly across the rest of the eu and other countries in the eu. Haven't done what the uk's done. So why have we got that difference. And if it's good enough for us why is it not good enough for the rest of europe. But these things do happen. I mean differences do occur in interpretation with with data particularly when you have those as just the s but again a while alluded to before is immature About could lead robertson so a lead coordinates when they were part of the mea for all the you took applications like said sixty percent of new medicines being less than ten years or so the amateur were coordination. I got great experience in this kind of area and a great network of keeping lead his experts. Who can give council on this data so you know. I'm i'm fairly confidence. That amateur are happy. With the safety and efficacy and quality than out of oxygen. There are some gaps in our understanding and in the data we've had generated so far though. Aren't there for instance. No one under eighteen has had the agent tried on them so they won't be being vaccinated pregnant women. Currently there regarded as a risk group. But they've not been included intentionally in the charles. They've been actually excluded from the trials. So how we gonna deal with the fact that there are these individuals or groups in the population that haven't been actively explored as time evolves. They will obviously investigate. Those subjects will be evolving. The plan with the mitchell ray in finding house was the best way to include those people.

"Good friend and Tron Brown got my good friend. Mr Anton Brown who? I don't know what you got yourself into but I was going to introduce you. You know we could talk about you being a driver this and that now. You're now I just got to introduce you. Insure a team owner and Tom Brown. Yeah I don't know if that's a good thing van thing but the thing about is one of those deals that it's just the next chapter where I'm heading my life and and right now you know. The good part is is all the partners that are making it happen like macro tools global electronic technology and then hangs defers and just Trg Toyota manage those partners. Have been with me. Since the beginning and global just signed on this year was D. Bryson and his wife Samantha and Pat an son Trevor. And all this good people over at global try technology and we just been making it happen to me. I was bringing it all together and Don Schumacher just being the backbone of everything just like you know we're working together. We can make this transition because right now the team is still the SR so are my goal is a motor. Sports is with me and my Kerchief Brian Karate that we could just works four to the future where we can just keep building ability and eventually hopefully In the near future was own everything and then It'd be motorsports would be off and running well in a you know. I think I look at this whole thing and I go there. There's two parts to this one. Your I got to know you pretty well the past few years and visionary guy like. You've always got a goal. You've you've got you've always look into the future. What's next what's next? How can we expand? How can we make things better for partners? How can I make things better for me? You Know How. Can we grow the footprint? You're always looking at that. But that being said like you gotTa Give Don Schumacher a lot of credit here. Because you know he's got one of the baddest dudes on the planet in Andhra Brown under contract with him but yet he's endorsing this idea of kind of moving into team ownership like to me. I gotta tip the CAP to John. Because a lot of team owners. They wouldn't want to do that. They WANNA keep you locked in dude. I know. And that's and that's the crazy part about it but for dawn you look at what he has established in the sport you know what I mean. A lot of people look at different ways and different deals and and he always said that he will never hold somebody down if they want if they want to do something and go out beyond their limits. You know what I mean. He always inspires people to do great things and a book history. He came in a sport with his son. He used to own his own race team back day when he used to drive. It's funny cars. Had a multi or team back in the day when it was even unheard of where he came out with two cars and three cars each race event and then you look at now. What he's done for the sport where the man's been every single different type of hall of fame won multiple world championships over seventeen world championships as a team owner and also he's got over three hundred and like I think he's a buffet. Eclipse OVER. Three hundred and seventy five. A Win wins as it as a team owner until all the different class. When you've been in pro stock motorcycle dot car funny car to top fuel. I mean the man. Does it. Just stop you know what I mean. So what's next like he? He's inspired all of us in our sport to look at our dream. That's ahead of us. Grasp on it and go after it and and He wants our sport to grow and I think this is great for sport. A whole is where other people could do the same thing. And you're seeing new people coming out there like the Beatles gotta top. You'll dragster team now. You've got just nationally in just nationally racing where eighteen but Davis guys over there. They're doing a great job. Clayton milliken got his own daily. Got Tired million teams came from the bottom and now they're attentive for championships The sport is constantly growing and growing and growing in. My mind is like now and why not? Yeah well it definitely. Why not you know and I think that speaks a lot to any as a whole in and I think you and I've had this conversation. I got a great relationship with the Nhra Buddy. I look at them and what they're doing and I feel like NHRA is growing. I mean you know I look at the social media numbers I see what the younger demographic like I feel like people are now sponsors. I feel like people are not coming to any stray. You've got you've got other sports and I don't WanNA throw NASCAR under the bus or something like that. But I feel like they're enter regression right now because you know they everything got so expensive and below did kind of starting to regress and they're hurting for sponsors and it's like how can we trim here and save costs and and nothing any trees and doing the same thing but I feel like it's people are not coming to the NHRA you know and it's not like they're having a fight to have people come in and I feel like whatever the nature is doing whatever they built. It's made the business proposition a little bit better for sponsors and for a guy like it'd be a team owner. You don't hear anybody going. I'm going to start a new NASCAR team. That's just not happening right now but here you are going to start new nature team or at least I want to. Oh absolutely and this is Um that always have been very very passionate about and something I've wanted to do and and you know the May stable love is. We've got Bryan Karate back on our on our G. and that's one of the main reasons why he wanted to actually come back 'cause he wanted to be a part of this. You know what I mean and a partner in this and it's kind of like the old school flavor like John Force and often quoted relationships and Brian talked about this for years. We just didn't know like I never knew. I can establish this and say okay once a launch point you know what I mean and the thing about it has got kept on getting pushed and pushed in the corner and then back of my mind thinking you know what if I'm GonNa do this right now. I'm in the middle of my career. It's time to make or break and I've been talking to. All of our partners involves over years. The all new. But I've been wanting to do and I never get allowed came to me from Toyota Ingles AB What's your future plans? You want championships remember. You always talked about having your own team and I said absolutely and And that's going to ignite it to follow her knee last year is when you have a you know ahead. Marketing Guy Toyota of North America. And you sit down. Have One on one talk. And they're gonNA give you anything that you need to make it happen and support you and then you start talking to your other partners. That you have involved like hanks. I like the Jones family over there and then also Mike until the motor sport marketing manager and they one hundred percent support and then this year's looking down the road and you're like man and then we got teams up with global electronic technology with the Bryson family. I mean it was just it was just everything was started falling into place to to make this happen and then. I haven't talked about me and I'll talk last year and we sat there and just like a heart to heart talk and he goes. This is what you WANNA do. I go yes it is and then. And he's been staring me along the way and they're telling me all the pitfalls to team ownership on how you carry yourself and what you have to do which you have to look out for and keep cash flow and all the counties stuff going in and everything else in the coolest part was that Jim. You never know what you prepare yourself for the college for Business Administration and I was going to be an actuary and I had a whole bunch of county class in mathematics classes and never in a million years thought that I'm drag racing. I would have to lean back on that. And and it's all coming to fruition right now. We're using everything now. I've learned through college so apply to racing any blowing my mind and I'll help. Education is now and it just. I've got to feel like you know we. We all know making it in motorsports drivers a grind. You're always working with partners and sponsors stuff like that and I feel like that now the sudden and I think there's only a few of us that understand raw team ownership and running something having employees and stuff and now you're not only working worrying about yourself. Ab You're worried about all these other people that you've got working for you and You know making payroll and making sure you not you keep the roof over your head. But they're keeping the roof over their head and I I mean I. It's it's a lot to take in buddy absolutely you know what I mean but right now I haven't had to do it just yet you right now. Everything's going through Don Schumacher racing In twenty twenty so I know in the future might have to take that on but the good part is is that. I've done it before you know what I mean. I've done it before long. Post like motorcycle team. I know what it is like the star and go from one racing x Ray and make ends meet and chase the chase the partnership and sponsorship dollar and to make it work in a shoe rig before I have my own. Cdl license and everything else and did all that stuff set up work on the race vehicle that the whole nine yards so I understand every aspect of the business from every in in over all these years working with all the partners you know it all goes hand in hand and and that's the thing is when when you go out there and you look at in today's world and you know it because you run your race team in offroad. You just can't be just a good driver. You just can't be just a good spokesperson. You've got to be well rounded in everything to make this stuff work down in today's air and motor sports. You know what I mean. In in the one thing Atri dot going forward is that we have fans showing up at every race. That's one thing that our sport does well in our TV packages growing and growing especially on Fox and F S One and two. And that's what you need to be successful getting eyes on the prize. I call it when I mean and and that's one thing our sport does really well and we catch audience if you and you know it if you come to our sport and you never been is it is life changing. It will shop your soul. And that's one thing they like in atrial drivers from does and that's I think the reason why our sports business Bainian so and now you're starting to see it grow in different areas and we're starting to see where the economy is doing well and we're starting to get some of the sponsors to triple back in and get new sponsors their sport in different stuff of that nature. No you know. I've never done drugs in my life but I gotTa tell you. I think that I think that hit when I had. I had natalie from Natalie Jenky. She goes stand right here. And I'm standing in the water box behind Torrance's top fuel car. I didn't know what to expect. He hits the gas and I gotTa tell you it was like somebody punched me as hard as they couldn't the chess. My lungs are on fire. I'm crying and I'm going. This is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. Hot Rubbers hit me and everything else and I go. I've never done drugs but this is what a hits got feel like right here. Yes his dad. Because you get you get you get sucked into it and tell people all the time we come to age a million you go there for your first time it. Will you want to big mouth bass when a more and and your hook and you gotta come back and you bring other people back and I think that's just a synergy of our sport in general or what it does to you and it hooked me as a young kid my down? Ogle in families to bring me out to the drag racing around the young kid and I just got hooked into the sport and I've never looked back and until this day. I'm just addicted to it brother. I just can't get enough. And that's what drives me. And that's the passion behind my force of just just keep on diving in the sport and.

So you're thinking of buying a project car...
"Week's project car was an e Bay find and it just so happens to be one of my favorite cars not just just because I own one but because they're cool a nineteen sixty eight dodge dart so this car is an abandoned racecar project. At least that's what it looks like to me. Maybe the guy just lost interest in it but whatever the case. It's an unfinished project car. And it's set up for drag racing so or at least it's headed in that direction so this is a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock hemi clone. It's got fiberglass front. From fenders two sets doors looks like Dana rear end with four link. Strange Break Strange Axles Manual Steering Column Column The seller says that most of the trim is included with the car. Except it's missing the windshield trim. It's got the sixty eight dark grill. Sixty Dr Tail Lights. It also comes with two pieces of four by sheet metal. My guess is to finish off the interior and all the tin work and it looks like the seller alert is GonNa throw in anything else that he may have forgotten the list with the car. It goes on to say that this car is a race car. Only now it's set at a buy it now. How price of eighty five hundred dollars and you know? Is it a good bye. I'm not quite sure I'd have to see the car in person but based on looks alone. It's pretty much. Just just a shell with a roll cage with hogged out rear wheel wells to fit bigger tires. And it's you know it's got some stuff going for and it's also got some stuff that it really needs addressed like is the cage even up to Nhra specs. You know how was the car built. These are a lot of questions that you need to ask when you go in. Look at these cars these unfinished unfinished racecars. Or if you're considering one I am a fool for these. I love seeing unfinished race cars. Because because I'm like Oh cool all the hard work done in this case there's still a lot of hard work left but if someone wants to get a little bit of a head start on a dart then I and I think it's a it's a good buy for somebody. That's looking for a race car. If you'RE LOOKING FOR MORE OF A streetcar you might WanNa shy away from something like this because it setup for drag racing so if you're gonNA spend eighty five hundred dollars I'm sure you can find a decent driver quality Dr that maybe it has a slant six in it. You know what it's pretty clean and you can always yanked the slant and throw in big block or a small block. Whatever you want you don't always have to get a race car and I think a lot of the time people you know they see st outlaws on TV? And they're like Oh. I got to do that so they go and they buy a race car. You know that hasn't been finished yet. And then they get in way over their head. That's probably what I would do you. You know if I didn't have my projects that I have now and I had some money burning home. My pocket in a car came up like this dart and already had a roll cage in it and it was already doubt if I didn't know any better. I probably would just buy based on cool factor alone but I do know a little bit better so if I ever go and look at a unfinished race car. Then I'm really going to look at the craftsmanship and the quality of the wells and the quality of the work involved in the car because the seller could have just started the project and got got in over his head realized he had changed a bunch of stuff and thought. You know what I'M GONNA cut my losses here. The car is nowhere near done. A have a bunch of money invested so it may may be easier for him just to say you know what screw it. I'm going to sell this car. And then just go by something and start over again. You have to watch for that kind of stuff when you're going and looking at these he's project cars because you never really know who built it you know. That's kind of scary when you're talking about safety equipment like a roll cage in you don't know who built it then then you've got you know. How do they got good welds or do they have experienced building race cars? Do the wells have good penetration. Trey Shen you know last thing you want is to roll a car that has shoddy roll Cajun at first of all you probably went to pass tech inspection. But let's just say you. You wield your way through got on that starting line and you rolled the car and you had a shoddy cage. Guess what not only can a cage save your life they can also kill you so those are things you have to keep in mind when looking at race cars like this or either x race cars or future race cars depending but that still doesn't take away from the fact that this car is cool if you were to go look at it and you're looking at the cage and you're like wow this is actually really well built. Maybe it just wasn't painted then in your saving a couple grand and then you've got the suspension set up and you know anything else all the little extras included with with the car. Like in this case. He's got some fiberglass fenders. Those definitely aren't cheap. When you're looking at project cars you really have to consider it as a whole you know? I'm kind of a fool in the way that I would go look at his car. And just think Oh my God look out coolest racecars everything else is like an afterthought I would hope that if myself or or anybody else is going to hand over. Eighty five hundred dollars on an unfinished project that you at least look it over really well maybe bring a friend. The second set of eyes is never a bad thing. But I really like this dark you know. I would have to see it in person to kind of determine if it's something that I wanted to get into into or if it looks like there's a lot of work that needs to be redone and I might as well start fresh with a much cheaper car a much cheaper Shell and then go oh from. They're not a bad car. I just thought it was cool looking on in the picture. It actually shows an overhead shop crane. It looks like it's You know him. He's hanging by right right in the engine. Bay The DR so a good sales tactic like this could be you but not a bad car. Are I wish the guy luck with the sale. I hope it's set up good in that somebody gets a good start to a race car out of it that that would be really cool because I love Dodge Dart superstock cars and the sixty eight Hemi Dr is also one of my top Mo- parts of all time along with the Barracuda. They're just so cool. Hemi bodies any body with a Hemi as cool in my book so cool Dr Check it out on Ebay. It's not hard to find. Just look up. Nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock. And you'll probably run across it so if you're looking for a little fun at the track and a a little fun at the garage I because you're probably going to be building this car for two years before you even get into the track. This might be a good deal. So they'll check it out on Ebay. It's still going to be up for another twenty nine days as it's got fifty two views per hour which is seems Seven people are watching it so it also has the make offer option so on Ebay you can do auctions by now or you can have a buy it now but also a make offer option option which tells me that this guy will take less than eighty five hundred dollars or else he wouldn't even put the make offer button there. So who knows what you could get this thing for. You might be sitting on a potential real cool deal you might go see. This guy will take five and Lo and behold he's like. I really need to get rid of this thing. It's taking up space in my garage. Yes I'll take fifty five hundred and then you eat that extra five hundred and Dan you know you call it a day and you bring your race car home your five thousand dollar Racecar so keep that in mind cool car. That's all I got to say about that. I would love of if my dart was built to look like a superstock but I just feel I would feel like an impostor because mine is a sixty nine and you know looking at the pictures this car. He's including these five relax vendors and they're actually four sixty nine because they have their rectangular marker lights if it's just a race car who cares and that's that that cool dark.

It's holiday week and You know nationally were running actually re air of episode number. Four hundred of our show We did a show for the one thousand on the offroad podcast with Eh but the national show online. We're actually taking a little bit of a week week break. But Steve Torrens is a good friend of mine in. He won the nature a top fuel championship and You also had A little bit of drama surrounding the event. You know those either fall along on social media. You don't watch the TV show. You know exactly what I'm talking about but You Know Steve is a very close friend of mine somebody. I absolutely think the world of him the entire family the Capco Boys Natalie who helps him out Just just an amazing group of people and you know Steve How the opportunity to catch up with him this week. We were GONNA air it next week show and you know what we are GonNa air it next week shell but before we do that.

This'll be a net next week's national show but I figured you know what it's Thanksgiving Week. Let's put this out there and I think You Know Steve. We talk a lot of a lot on a lot of topics are relevant to NHRA. And now the incident there at the finale. And you know this is something. I didn't think should wait a week. I thought it should get out there. And so off your nature a fan or fan end of the show. I think you're going to enjoy this. And this is a Steve Horri- that I know and I think that came across really really well. So hopefully you guys enjoy and hopefully you. You have a great Thanksgiving holiday all right like to welcome one of my guests this week. My good good friend Brother from another Steve Torrance. My friend welcome to the show buddy. Thanks brother I'm glad to be back. It's always a good time talking to you. I know why we caught up at seem a little bit and since then you win Dun Dun won a championship on Man. How about that brother? It's been an unbelievable year. I thought after after eighteen I thought you know I'd probably have reached the pinnacle of my career. And this is there's nothing going to be better than this but wow that's surprising myself to go back to back championships and two completely different effort way for doing it. It's been been really special. Yeah no joke two completely different ways of doing it for sure you know. It's one of those things. Stephen you and I are brothers. There's a GNAT and I talked. And I say man the last two weeks and this is one of those I just. I just watched your instagram post earlier today and it was kind of the award ceremony there at Nha okay. And I think that pretty much sums everything up man but this ad have been an emotional couple of weeks for multiple reasons for you man. Yeah Yeah it's been. It's been rather that crazy I can assure you so been the high of highs in the loves loves. Well we're going to talk about the highest highest today buddy and you know I I've got to say you know last year with Nhra Championship that thing. Pretty much locked up going into the final round. I mean it was kind of. You're there for I. I don't even know what you showed up for because you didn't really have to show up but you wanted to make it perfect but this year I mean you had a Helvin all the way all the winter the man you know honestly I I'm not I've never been a real big fan of the point system but I will tell you it made it super interesting to all the fans and everybody that watched it. I'm telling you to just see it. Come down on the final day to define Oh really the final three cars but Brittany and number one and two points go head to head in the second round pretty much for the championship That's what they paid for. That's the ticket that that was the one that was worth. Well that'd be said I mean uses. Who is a driver? Y You know you and Britney new I mean that had been one of the most important races of your career I mean right there I mean and you know you guys guys are pulling up there and this is the you know this is the last weekend of the season. You guys are in a gridlock. You're going head to head with her in the second round. I mean you know you guys both. We've had felt the way to the world on your shoulders at that point in time. Oh for sure I mean that's those are the round that you remember forever. Those are the rounds. Oh you you you say okay. This is winner takes all. This is all the marbles. Everything is on the line right here right now. How and do you do your job or do you choke or what happens in and so I mean that was a huge huge round for us and and it was exciting? I mean it was nerve racking. It was anxiety I mean. It was every emotion that you could probably have at that moment. Yeah I can imagine I mean you guys line up there and I mean you know at that point you know you you end up winning against breeding force in I mean did you just feel you know just a a big lift of the pressure off you at that point. I mean you still had a couple of rounds to go you know but at that point it was a little bit of celebrating. or it's like now we gotta get back in the game here because we still got a few rounds left. Oh it was. It was a little celebrating. But you know it. It's also like a little bit of pressure offer but now let's go race and then they come back and they tell you well. You've won the championship if you don't hit the wall and you don't use the cones and you don't Cross Austin centerline and man. I'm only hit the one the wall one time ever and that's when I had a wreck and then then across the centerline or no I've never crossed a centerline but I did hit a cone and you start thinking back in your head. You're like man. Just just how easy would it beat across the centerline. How how easy would it be? Ah Cone I mean what if this thing. It's all under the tire you know what about this. What about that and so ultimately you go up there to the semi around and you're thinking don't screw this up because this is very easy to just cost yourself a whole year championship and everything? So ultimately I mean we were I was justice. Nervous second round or third round is the first and second round. I find that funny too because you know ninety nine percent of at the time you go up there into staging you get ready to race. You're not worrying about hitting the wall. I mean that's like the farthest thing from your mind but for you to go into that round and all all of a sudden you're worried about this stupid stuff at ninety nine percent of the time you're not even concerned with I mean things happen you know but it's not like it's at the forefront of your thought process and I think that's that's funny you're going up there and like you're playing mind games yourself at that point second yourself out they. Yeah it's it's it's it's crazy when you start thinking about it of win. Yeah I I've never worried about crossing the center line or or or hitting the cones ever. I mean that's just just you don't. That's not something that's in your thought process when you're going to go up there and go racing but when they start telling you about it and you got a championship on the line you definitely start thinking about it. Yeah for sure well all it said. I think it's just I find it Kinda funny I hate to say it is but that being he said I mean. Let's talk about this this year because this was last year you guys were dominant in the past three years. And I've said this before I mean I find it hard pressed to find anybody in motorsports water sports at Strung together three seasons with the winds like you have I mean we we gotta look at like Lewis Hamilton and Formula One or something like that. I mean it's just you know is pretty remarkable marketable but I mean this year I feel like everybody I mean you know. Last year he has were so dominant. This year your dominant. Also but I gotta I feel like this year. People do their homework this off season because they came out swinging. I mean you guys had you got off to a little bit of a slow start this year but I mean we can talk about Britney forced but we gotta talk about Doug we you gotTa Talk About Your Dad. I mean you know you come in from all angles Steve. Oh you're not kidding. I mean they were coming for us with with with vengeance. And so Yeah we had a slow start. We went over five six races without winning. And then you know we really came. Came back into everything in the middle all the year throughout the county or throughout the The summer but when the countdown time came and when we we struggled a little bit and so last this year when we earn in eighteen when we won I mean we've we rolled pretty good throughout the middle of the year and then we really turned it on the countdown. This year was exact opposite. I think we won one race in the countdown and run it up a couple so I mean they were gone in for us well in the whole countdown format. Did anytime you know because we know what happened in seventeen in Brittany Kinda kinda snuck that thing out right there at the end of that plane into your thought process in nineteen going. Oh man we can't we. This could be happening again and I think at one point was Doug I think he ended up being on top of the standings for a while. Too right yeah. Yeah I mean you you definitely start having flashbacks of seventeen when you come into the final race at Pomona and Brittany's less than around around behind you and they're running stronger than than they have. All year and Grubby just cans are to us in Vegas and go sixty five. I mean you're like Oh oh man. Is this happening again but I was a little bit meant. I was mentally stronger than I was in seventeen gain. You know just to to be focused and go up there and do my job because I I didn't seventeen and that's what it costs us and so you got that in the back of your mind. That's definitely apparently a motivating factor. Yeah well I wanNA talk about something to because I think in the middle of this whole countdowns going on and your dad who who was going to do this. Partial season this year whatever and he still ended up making the countdown then he goes wealthy. Do make the countdown. We're going to run all the races. And I had him on the show. But it's one point wha- AH everybody start kind of looking at things and going you know there might be torrance on top this year but it might not be Steve. I mean your dad you WanNa talk about somebody there for awhile. Ah had everybody Kinda going on. This might be a narrative we weren't we weren't quite ready for man. We gotta talk about this season. Your Dad had because you know. I gotTa say if he decides to put together the other full-time effort. I think everybody's a little nervous Alamein. I'll tell you what that guy. He did an unbelievable job. His car was basically at the same same car that we did and and sometimes it was better and and just.

"We saw all year long dominated the top fuel ranks. Now we get to. Basically NHRA version of the play offs, and Steve is just destroying everyone right now in in top fuel. The dude is just on fire. He is on a mission, and Steve is just is crazy crazy how good Steve torn has been. So yet another win at the midwest nationals there. Gateway, motorsports park, Steve just continued to dominate. So you know, you wanna talk about a man on a mission. I think there's maybe like three NHRA rounds left and three or four. I should know this think three now I'm gonna have to double check right. So we're pulling up handy dandy website and. Yes, we've got. Slicking down here, where are we? Yeah, countdown to the championship we're going on. Yup. Just like I said, we've got four hours left. All right. We got Texas. And then we got a couple of four wides both Carolina and then at Las Vegas, and then we've got the one in pamona so to to finalize things. So, yeah, we got. I guess four arounds left, but Steve man, he is on fire right now. Just dominating top fuel. Another big win there. And in like Steve said in this goes back into some of the things he's been on this show before and said, he's been on other shows. It's not like steeples any punches whatsoever. That's one thing I love about Stevo you always know what is on Mr.. Torrance's mind. He says, hey, look, man. He goes, if John force would have had to John one like fifteen sixteen championships, I should know this and I don't write off top my head. He's like if he had to go through this playoff system, he's like he'd have half the titles. He he has today truth, you know, you look in asker Richard petty, probably the same thing, right? Dale Earnhardt probably the same thing. So you know, he says the legends of NHRA with all these championships. If they had to do what I'm doing, they wouldn't have all the championships. John force wouldn't be the guy. He is today if they had this emplaced years ago. So kind of side with them on that. I agree. But Steve just dominating right now. He's gonna win within the confines of this thing in the NHL. IRA, but he's definitely pushing for change. Robert hight taking the funny car win Tanta grade pro stock, Matt Smith on pro.

You know, and I was stoked take part yet again in it speaking of where we're going to get to a lot of IndyCar and motor sports news after the break. But before that I do want to talk a little bit a little bit. I don't know why said a little bit. That's kind of weird a little bit about NHRA and I guess most importantly, my man Billy torrents Billy towards, you know, my boy, Steve torn. These become like a brother to me. So Steve Torrance, obviously top, you'll guys dominating the points taking all these winds had him on the show a couple of times to NHRA races with them. He raised with me at the mid four hundred in the star car. So you know, I love the torn family. They've welcomed me like one of their own. What I'm out of the race. Like literally, Steve's momma, k the CAPCO boys Billy just, I mean, that's, you know, they've kind of become like family to me and NHRA and Billy's one of those guys. He is Mr. CAPCO right? He just he kinda races when he wants to, you know, and he's always quick. Never taken a top fuel win though. I mean, and he's one of those guys. Everybody knows he's good. He's fast, but this never broken through. This has been Steve's year. I mean, Steve is the guy he'd think, talk top fuel. You're thinking Steve Torrance? Twenty eighteen and somehow at Brainerd Mr. Billy Torrence. Steph's dad broke through for his very first ever top fuel win for the CAPCO boys. And you wanna talk about exciting for guy like that. And I don't want to say his age because Bill is not old, but man, you know, he's doing this for fun into breakthrough. Take a victory at Brainerd, the Lucas oil nationals. That's the statement right there. And I just I had to take a second on the show to give a shout out to the Torrens family racing CAPCO and Billy Torrance for that epic victory, their Brainard, man. I'm gonna try and catch up with Billy on the show. At some point, Steve's easy. We we've had him on a lot, but I want to get Mr. CAPCO himself.
