"Has been filling in the last four races with Kurt Busch being out with concussion like symptoms, so obviously a ton to unpack here, both about what it means for ty Gibbs, his future in the Cup Series, what's going on with Kyle Busch being inside our show gets racing, what happens with Kurt Busch in terms of when's he going to come back? I mean, should he come back really at this point in the regular season with just the Glenn and Daytona left before the playoffs? Like, I wonder if that comes into the calculus now with that team's decision there. You'd have to thank that may. Rex can happen anywhere or anything like that, but why not come back when the playoff starts? You know, don't put yourself in that position. Take as much time because he has that. Unless we have the two winners and then it's going to be a non issue with that. It wouldn't have mattered probably if he would have come back. So I don't know. But the question is about ty Gibbs and I'm just saying, I don't know where there's a seat in that Toyota camp, but Joe Gibbs or 23 11 racing, but Todd Gibbs deserves the seat. He's ready for a seat in cup racing. He does not need to be in Xfinity full-time anymore. Yeah, listen, I agree. Sometimes and it's a stupid saying. Hire good people and find a place for them. Okay? Ty Gibbs is good people when it comes to driving a race car. Higher tag Gibbs and find a place for it. That's how simple it is. Just as Dale said, he doesn't need to be an Xfinity racing anymore. You know, Rick Hendrick looked at William Byron and said, you're my future. You're the future of part of the future of white Hendrick motor sport. I'm committed to you now. We talked earlier about Ryan Blaney and Penske committing to him. Somebody needs to commit to ty Gibbs. Whether that's his grandfather, whether that's Michael Jordan. I don't know. You know what I mean? Somebody in that Toyota organization has to commit to him to say, you're our future. Because there's nothing but blue scan from this kid. He has done a phenomenal job, or an exceptional job. I think getting in a Pocono with no practice, being calm, talking them through it, and finally we go through two races, Indy was not going to be a spectacular. We didn't think. You still had a solid race. But we put him in a position, or they put him in a position so he could race at Richmond. And we actually saw him race. We saw him racing with Kyle Busch. And I think that that progression over a three race period in this car shows that he deserves are at least has the talent to be in one of these cars. Well, I'll turn around on you. Hire good people find places for them. Does it still apply to Kyle Busch? I mean, should Toyota find a place to kind of keep Kyle Busch in the fold if they decide that ty Gibbs. Okay, let's say this. Hire good people and find a place for him unless they want to pot load of money and you don't have the money, okay? So let me say that. And I'm not saying Kyle Busch wants a pot load of money, but he's worth a potluck on. Okay. He is worth a pot load of money. So I don't know the D lens

"Between both of them so I don't know if I can give you the answer on that. It's like telling which brother I love the best so I think I like both of them equally and I'm very thankful to be able to be in both of them. Yeah, I think beggars can't be choosers when it comes to racing in the top two divisions. The political side of this is good. That's good. Thank you. Hey ty, thanks again for joining us. And good luck this weekend in Indianapolis. Yeah. Thank you. Thanks, thanks, Kyle. Thanks to gel so you guys, thanks for letting me come on. All right. Thank you. Thank you. All right, so ty Gibbs. What do you guys make? I know you guys have both have strong opinions about drivers in the Xfinity series and moving up to cup and I think I've heard you say it DJ that you feel like if they think he's ready, move them up. Obviously they have a situation there in the 18 where they're not sure if Kyle Busch is coming back. That could be where he is next year. I'd like for somebody to tell me why he's not ready. I don't think that could come from anybody that really understands what drivers are and how good they can be. And right now, in particular, in my opinion, with the two cars, the X vanity side of it, and with the cup car being what it is now, there's no reason to hold this young man back. I mean, I understand you have to wait till the sponsorship and available seat is there. You don't want to put him in something that's not good. I know his grandfather is going to do that. But I think he's ready for that. I always say that you can't take someone out of Xfinity just to put them into a cup if they don't know how to win. He's proven he knows how to win. He's got that down pat. So the experience that he needs now is with this new car because that's what he's going to be racing for a long time. Yeah. Yeah, and that was exactly. Winning is a habit. Winning is a habit. You got to learn that habit. He's learned to have it. He has a habit of winning, no matter what he gets in. And we saw Rick Hendrick do it with William Byron. He made that commitment. If you've got an owner, willing to make that commitment and his granddad is his owner, okay? If you've got an owner willing to make that commitment, get him to cup as soon as you can. Because ultimately, that's where they want to be. That's where they want to be. And if you make that commitment to that driver to say, okay, we're just going to put you out there and do the best you can for a couple of years learn. Get your stuff straight. I'm behind you. You don't have to worry about anything. That's a lot off the shoulders of any young driver. Any young driver. We've seen so many guys like Grand Prix, Ross Chastain, who have come through here and felt like this is my only chance. This is my only chance. Once they get in a good car, ty is not in that situation. This is not my only chance. You know what I mean? I've got time to learn. So he is in rarefied air, just as we and Byron is. So listen, I say moving the cup is as soon as you can get him there and let him learn there. Because in the case of a tie and Byron, like you said, KP, if they know they have that runway, just accelerate it. Set them

"I'm actually more content seeing the 7 in 21st lot of than I would have been second or third if they wouldn't have worked out 'cause I bet even more men. But Rick Hendrick said we couldn't win. I really warned him to win. We do the motors for him. We share a lot of things with them. And he's a great guy, and I think a whole lot of Dickerson in those guys and that was a Cinderella story. And I would have loved if we couldn't win. I wanted him to win. Because he drove a heck of a race and did a heck of a job. He looked as good as anybody in this field out there today. That might have something to do with the fact that spirometer sports runs Rick Hendrick engines and has a technical alliance. So there's a little bit of a little bit of a tie there, but I mean still Discord the joy move up in stature a little bit based on this finish. He lobbied at one point, KP to try to get the 48 ride when Jimmy Johnson retired. So does this help him long-term, do you think? So that's an excellent question. And I can answer that question, but I'm going to step on some toes. Okay, okay. I won't step on toes, but I'll say this. There are guys that have won Daytona and Talladega that struggled to drive their way out of a paper bag post other places. Okay. We're not naming names. In other words. But they're good race car drivers. Right. But they're great speedway racers. Yeah. But they're just good race car drivers. I was never a great speedway racer, so they're better than me there. And I was never a great race car driver on these other ones. So listen, I understand that. But they were, they were exceptional speedway racers. And I think Cory has proven he's an exceptional speedway racer. And I think Michael McDowell has proven he's an exceptional speedway racer. You know what I mean? And I think he's also an exceptional road racer. But, you know, that's what a third of the season, 25% of the season. I was gonna carry me the other 75% of the season. And that's where Cory has to prove himself. Yeah. That's where that's what I want to say. I want to see you take that spiral motor sports car and run in the top ten at Martinsville. You know what I mean? Because we know they're operating on a tenth of why Hendrick is operating on. I looked up at one time and you look at it and there's track house, JGR, Hendrick, and spire. And I'm thinking, oh my gosh, any of those other three teams spent more on dinner last night with fire. You know what I mean? It'll get just because they have that many more. Because they have because they have, you know what I'm saying? So when you look at the position and hold a mirror up to it, it's like, Corey Lajoie is a God for taking that car up there. And run it. It looks exceptional. And he has exceptional, because he is an exceptional race car driver. When we go to speedways. But I'd like to see more someplace else. You can say, okay. Yeah, I'd hire that guy. And as the jury always going to be out until he gets in top caliber equipment ladies. And listen, I know we're going to get to Ross Chastain. Yes, we are. But let's look at Rawls. Ross drove for a who. Gosh. In cup, he drove for like premium motors. Johnny Davis and Xfinity. Did you even know who he was? No. No, you know what I'm saying? Because he didn't have the car didn't showcase his talents. And I don't think that Cory's ever driven any card that has showcased his talents. Yeah. Then been able to. You know what I mean? And that's a plus for Corey, because when I look at him, I say, jury's still out because I don't know what you can do in a good car. So I think from an owner's perspective, an owner would be willing to gamble and look at it and say that. But at the same time, you know, go back to Ross, Ross has been here 6 or 7 years and run a 130 or 40 race, whatever he's running his total. But he's really only been in a car at the last year and a half. So Alex Bowman, you know, let's look at another example. I wouldn't believe that he was going to win 7 cup races. Alex Bowman gets a net 48 car and everybody says, man, he's running for Ricky of the year. He's been here 6 years. He's not running for tricky of the year. I do the same thing with Ross. He's run multiple seasons. Ross and we're running multiple cups. Same thing. Full seasons. What are you guys talking about? And the guy sitting in the grandstand is like, what do you mean he's been here? Yeah he's been here. You know what I mean? Right. It's such a funny game. It's such a fun business. It's hard to really tell. But I will say this. If there's an owner out there willing to take a gamble, Corey moved to the top of the list because at least you know there's four or 5 races, 5 or 6 races now that you got a shot at doing something where you can do something special. All right, so you brought up Ross Chastain's name, and that's where we're going to end up. I'm probably derelict in my duties as a journalist here that I've waited some 30 plus minutes to get to. But so much has been said already. I heard a little bit of what you said post race KP that I think essentially you said that maybe people were being a little bit too hard on him just for being who he is as a racer. Yeah, listen, I think he's a guy that's easy to kick right now. And that's how simple it is. It's like I said, if we're in the kitchen and a cookie's going from the cookie jar and everybody's gonna say Ross got it. Rob's got it, man. It had to be Ross. You know what I mean? Because that's just where we're at. You know what I mean? I don't think that's fair. I don't think we're all sitting anything wrong. I don't know who could look at that and say it was intentional and the first place. These guys are running fourth and 5th. And Ross didn't drive down in the corner saying, I'm going to take Denny out. I mean, he had damage to his car.

"And over and over how playoff points matter. You can not just say, hey, we won. Now we can go and have bad races. It doesn't work like that. This is all from practice. It was last time we saw we saw this at California. Now we saw it here. I mean, these short practices are so difficult because save you when they drop the green flag, you gotta go. Like you can't go out and say, well, I'm a ride around and feel my car, see how it feels. There's a drive okay. No, you got 15 minutes. You got to roll. And so when you go to a track like door, you go to track like California. We're going to Darlington. This coming weekend. That will be so much easier. So much easier. So what do you do? Roll out there and just ride around in the first apple and tires is the best. I mean, you know, so it's putting these drivers and teams in a very unique situation. I will say this and I chase Elliott fans and know you everywhere. Don't ride me bad letters. The best thing for Hendrick motor sports. Hear me out is for chase Elliot to be the last guy to win. And when I say that, what Hendrick mode would make any organization great is that when other teams can push each other. Internally, if Alex Bowman can be pushing and making Chase Elliott better, that's what you want. Kyle Larson, we know he's pushing. They got all their guys went and races. And whoever's the last guy to win, it just is what it is. And that's when Rick Hendrick is back smiling. He's sitting there saying, okay, I got all this figured out. And they're going to make each other better. If you're going to win races, you got to beat the guys in this building. And that will make chase Elliott better. That will push the most popular driver in the sport that will push him to be better and ultimately push him to win more races. Rick Hendrick and chase Elliott not the only ones that are smiling because it is NASCAR's most popular driver, so I'm sure we've got a lot of chase LA fans who want to talk to us today. A lot of phone calls, I'm sure, on a very eventful day at Dover. And we're going to get started with Shelby here on NASCAR America motormouth. Shelby, welcome to the program. What you got? If trace Elliot was on the line, my question would obviously be what is the biggest difference in the steering in this year's race car from last year's race car and also thank you for being my favorite driver. All right, there you go. I'll give it to the driver. I know physically what's different. It's a completely different system. Just how it operates under the hood is nothing, anything at all like the other car. But from the actual feedback, I know you've talked a lot of drivers. It seems to be much quicker. And I think that some of these single car Rex is just, you get to the point where I don't want to say they get behind on the steering, but if you used to move your hands a couple inches that perhaps is too much on this car, you have to almost slow everything down. Yeah, that's exactly what happens. It actually on pit road and in the garage area, you have to turn the car a great deal and on the track you don't turn it much at all. And so you get behind just a little bit. Now what we are seeing here is that drivers aren't over correct and driving the right front into the wall, which is what we were seeing early in the year. The drivers have learned, we can not over correct these cars, meaning if you turn it to the right to catch the car when it's loose, keeping it from spinning out. You don't turn it too far on the ride. It hangs it right and head on in the wall. The drivers are learning how to do that. That's a good thing. But it's just a quicker Syrian. You turn the wheel this much, the car goes like that as opposed to last year, you have to turn it this much to get to go to go to the same direction. And do you have a correction seem to be the problem with Martin Truex Junior when he had his issue with chip Ross just in the last lap? That was really odd looking to me. It's almost like when Ross came up, it kind of pushed the nose of Martin's car up and then he turned left to get out of the wall. And the next thing you know, he's pointed to the inside wall. And now he got behind, you got behind on the serum, but right here, he thinks he's got the spot. And he didn't push up in a wall. He turned away from the wall and now he's pulling to the inside wall. And it was really odd. I mean, if I'm Martin Truex, I'm thinking.

"Bowman, Elliot Larson are all signed beyond 2022. So timely win, a good thing for William Byron. And where do you think he is right now? Listen, I think William Byron is home, but I think he was home when he got there. I don't think Rick has any I don't believe Rick Hendrick to have any intention of ever letting William Byron out of his grasp. You know, I know we've seen chase. I know we've seen Kyle Larson and we see Alex just continue to win. And it's amazing. I mean, he's just there. He's solid and he's there. But and I've said it and I've said it on our pre race, I've said it a million times on NBC. I think we and Barron is the anchor and the future of what Hendrick motor sports is. I don't think it's chasing. Sorry, I don't think they signed a 5 year deal. It's not him. Don't care. Don't care. I think when William Byron hits his stride, we're going to be sitting here and I honestly believe we're going to be sitting here with comparisons to Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. I don't hear that about chase. I hear old chase won't road courses, okay? I don't see that. You know, last time chase won an oval was Phoenix when he won the championship. That's not Jimmy Johnson. That's not Jeff Gordon. Those guys can our competitive everywhere. Baron has been competitive. A lot of places. They've just got to get past that point. They got to break through that. I think Rudy has been really good for him. Really, really good for whatever reason. They've just kind of clicked. But I think he thinks about it. He studies it. And I think he's the guy that can drive the bus creatively to move the car forward and to help the car move forward. Because he focuses on things like that. So that's just my opinion. And Rudy fugle his crew chief was the guy in Byron said before last year before the 2021 season, that's my guy. I went with him in the truck series, Rick Hendrick, we're picking a new crew chief for me. That's the guy I want. So it's like he had this sense of autonomy. And it's easy to sort of lose side of the fact, I guess, Kyle. William Byron is in his 5th season in cup, but he's still younger than 25, I believe. He can't be what, 22, 23. I mean, he's still got to be somewhere in that 24 this year. Maybe. Extremely young. Man, he's listen. He's closer to the prom than he is to retirement. So let's look at that one. I think when you look at when you look at it, it is, and those are solid. If we go, if I go back and look at a 19 year old a 20 year old to 21 year old, those are solid years, man. Those are solid years. He had to learn how to run cup. I talked to Rick, you know, after he won the championship and Rick moved him to cup. I was like, great. Great, great call, man. And Rick took some heat for it. You know what I mean? And Rick called, and he said, why do you say that? You know, why do you think it's a good call? And I go back to and I told Rick, I said, I'm going to give you the Richard Petty theory. If you're going to be a cup driver, go race cup. That's where you're going to learn. Yeah, learn to race against Kevin Harvick. Learn to race against Kyle Busch. Learn to race those guys and what they race. Get those hard knocks out of the way. Get them out of the way. It's going to be painful. It's going to be painful. It's not but get them out of the way. Don't spend all your time in the Xfinity series or the truck series. When in championships are winning what you think is a lot of races, and then you have to move up and then you have to go through that period at 28 or 29, go ahead and do it now. And I think that's what his first year second year third year. He struggled a little bit. But he's kind of hit a rhythm. And I think if you could get some of the luck away from him because he runs up front and some stages score stage points does everything he needs to do. He just needs to get him victory lane a little bit more. This could be the year it clicks. And I looked it up by the way, lord Byron turned 24 last November 29th. There you go. Still very young. I want to talk to you about some of these other guys in the top 5 going back to what you were saying about those days in the early 90s when things changed and you need to have specific cars and much more race specific cars. I was struck by the fact yesterday that you had Ross Chastain, Kurt Busch, Corey Lajoie, finished in the top 5 with battered race cars that have been in like Rex and spins and through the grass and apparently the next gen is just a tank, which I think is what NASCAR wanted and I would think kind of to your point earlier should be allowed to be used everywhere. Yeah, I think we're getting to see it with the bodies on the Xfinity cars with a composite body. You know, because they were listen. If Tyler Reddick could drive a composite body and not tear it off a car, that's your body. That's because he did it in the Xfinity series. He could run all up next to the wall and just never checked up. He was a good test model or the good tester for that. So you look at the body. I think there are weak links. We see him getting the wall and the independent rear suspension. It cocks it and moves it enough that, you know, your day is over. There are some weak links that come with it. But these are tough cars. Body wise, these are incredibly tough cars. And I think the way the engine compartments design and the way a lot of the car is designed, it's designed to take a little bit of a blow and pop back and bounce back. And I think we saw that yesterday. Now, is it the fastest car in the world when it does that? No. We've got to go back to some of these cars that were torn up. And you have to put that little asterisk side of it and say, okay, 31 cars were involved in Rex. That's why some of these cars are still running up front because there were so many cars that were torn up yesterday. There were fewer cars in perfect condition than there were. And a lot of races are not that way. But impressive what these crews did, because with the limited amount of work they let you do to fix a body and fix a car now, and NASCAR, I was impressed with every one of those teams, getting those cars close enough that they could go back out there and to see raw's Chastain after he had been all over the wall. And the next thing I know, I'm.

"Isn't a totally great analogy, but in this time of inflation in America, there's apparently inflation now in NASCAR with the Cup Series with super speedway racing because now Atlanta essentially give you 6 superspeedway races in addition to the two annual Daytona Talladega. So how do you look at that? Do you agree with Joey that maybe that's the way for drivers to look at this is to just sort of accept that, hey, sometimes it's going to come out of my wallet literally and figuratively literally for the team owners that they're going to crash some cars and have to deal with some racing that's really frustrating. Yeah, they're going to have to deal with a style of racing that is frustrating. Okay and I think that's what you get into because the speedway is a different style of racing. I found it fascinating that we're going to be up in arms a little bit. That we're adding two super speedway races, but nobody said anything when we added 14 road courses. You know what I mean? It's like, oh, I love those road courses, man. That's the greatest thing. That's a new short track and nasty. You know what I'm trying to say. I mean, there's has to be a balance somewhere. You know what I mean? And Daytona and Talladega are your speedway races. This race track races like a speedway. But I'm not sure that was speedway racing. I'm not willing to call it speedway racing. I know they drove it that way, but we heard for Saturday and Sunday if you listen to some of the stuff and read some of the comments. You know, I've got low drag package. I got a high drag package. I got a handling package. I got, let's go to the front package. You know what? I mean, so they were all over the board. When you go to Daytona, basically it's giving speed. When you go to the Talladega, it's basically give it speed. July is the one outlier in that because July at Daytona seemed to get hot and slick used to. I don't know what this car. I think joy's comment is more by saying, and using the word tax, but it's more like, this is the price we have to pay. To be able to run the racetracks, we want to run. You know what I mean? And if this is the price we have to pay, so be it. I'm willing to do it. You know what I mean? Because I want to be able to run Martinsville. I want to be able to run Bristol. I want to be able to run Charlotte in Texas and all these racetracks. So, you know, I think a lot of people would have liked to have seen Atlanta stay Atlanta, but Atlanta is not going to be a land anymore. So get over it. You know what I mean? And I think that's what Joey's saying also. It's a different racetrack. It's moved into a different category. We just have to live with it. I think some of the fear and loathing might be, though, that, hey, this worked as Atlanta. There might be some other amount and a half tracks that we might want to try this with. Does there come a point where owners, we know that drivers perhaps their say should be limited, but owners, their foot in the Bill, and you've got this next gen car this year that has limited inventories, everybody scramble for parts and pieces and cars. Do you think at some point owners say they're paying for it? Maybe they push back and say, hey, 6 of these types of races is enough. You know, that's a great question. I could see them pushing. I really could. And they would have the numbers to back it up. You know what I mean? They would have the financial numbers to be able to buy it. I mean, it's a funny thing that this conversation we're having this conversation today because we had this same conversation. I had the same conversation with my dad, probably 30 years ago. Okay, early 90s to mid 90s. Seems to be the time when we started going to Daytona and Talladega. And tearing up more cars that Daytona and Talladega, than you did at Martinsville or Bristol. There was a crossover moment there. Teams took their worst crap to Bristol. Because they knew it was coming back in a basket. You took stuff to Martinsville, that you didn't mind tearing the sides off of or tearing the front ends up. That's what it was. Now this is when teams had three or four cars. Not when they had 39 cars. They got into a NASCAR. But there was that crossover with the plate and the way things begin to race and the way people begin to race. You know, you go back to Bill Elliott unlapped himself two times. Nobody got close to each other. Knowing I'm tearing anything, huh? Right. The way I get close to each other. And so through the 80s and stuff, you had those type races where people run close, but man. I mean, I can't tell you how many times working at pity enterprises, we brought a car back from Daytona, pushed it over in the corner, cleaned it up, and took it to Talladega and never repainted it. It was done, man. It was done. You know what I mean? And those days stopped. Somewhere in the 90s, those days stop. So think about if Rick Hendrick sat down and said, okay, 1998 to 2000 22. How many cars have I tore up at Daytona? Now let's go back and remember Jimmy Johnson those guys will tear up three or four years sometimes. How many cars have I torn up? I bet that numbers would shock a lot of people. I can't remember talking to Rick Hendrick after the 2012 what was then, I believe, sprint unlimited, maybe bud shoot out. And I talked to him the day after that race, and all four of his cars had been recognized the night before, and he said, I just lost a $1 million in race cars. Yeah, think about it. Think about it. And that's one weekend. So think about that spread over. Think about that spread over a 25 year period and think about how much. So I can see the owners stepping in and saying, okay, this is our limit. But I have to say, at the same time, if I look at Charlotte, if I look at Texas, if I look at Kansas, Atlanta was a unique one and a half mile race track. It's not Charlotte. It's not Texas. It's a little bit from the front stretch to the middle of the backstretch is wider. You never really even when we used to run there a thousand years ago when it was the old old Atlanta speedway, just two straightaways. You were only ever straight for almost like a nanosecond. You'd come off the corner, drift out to the wall and then start back into the next corner. Same thing on the back stretch. So it was like one big circle. And that's almost when they made the D shape in the front. It's just a continuum of that. And you see them come off, and they don't run that straight down the back stretch anymore. So I just think Charlotte other places, I'm not sure they could do that. So it's interesting KP described it as not quite Daytona Talladega, but it may be a different and obviously it's a mile and a half, so it's not a 2.66 mile race track like Talladega or two and a half mile race track like Daytona, obviously it's shorter, but sounded like speeds or insane in person. I wasn't there. I was in Texas Motor Speedway from IndyCar race, but it sounded like watching it was just a constant blur. And I didn't monitor social media like you had tried to avoid monitoring too much social media, but it seems like I haven't checked in on the Jeff luck dot com, but it seemed like fans liked it. It seemed like if you were a fan of Daytona or Talladega, this was close enough. This is a close enough approximation that you got your money's worth. That's what you're looking for. I would say so. I would say so. And a strange way and a strange way, it's like that style of racing, that type of racing. It was a miniature version of that. It's like going up to GoPro and watching cup guys run go karts. It's a miniature version of a road course. You know what I mean? So it looks cool. And you see the past and then you see the racing, but you know it's a little bit different. But I still, you know, it just wasn't the things happened fast. It was.

"Hey. You all right? Yeah, that's me. Okay. That didn't change or anything. All right. Title is still the same. We're all right. Awesome. So before the Daytona 500 last week, we got some like earth shattering news, huge, massive. In the back of the hauler, a little deal was made. That sounds so sketchy. I know. Some of you are going to drive for the team, another 5 years, see. So what's your referencing, obviously, is the chase Elliott contract extension. The sport's most popular driver and Cup Series champion for 2020 chase Elliott has inked a contract extension. And like Kerry said, the news was dropped moments before the Daytona 500 on Sunday. Chase will remain with Hendrick motor sports for another 5 years bringing his tenure to the end of the 2027 NASCAR Cup Series season. So this is big. This is a big deal. Well, based on the Hendrick motor sports tweet, it sounds like it might be longer than 5 years as they tweeted quote as long as chase is driving, we want him right here with Hendrick motor sports. Yeah, and on Thursday before the duels, Rick Hendrick was asked this in a media availability. About contracts for William Byron and chase Elliott, he said, I want both those guys to be my drivers forever. Wow. And said that contract extension news would be coming soon. And sure enough, we got chase is on Sunday, so we should be getting William Byron soon too. Forever seems like a long time. Well, I mean, you'll think about it. He signed a lifetime contract with Jeff Gordon, and we see how that's turning out now. Yeah, he's still stuck with him. Having to do a day job now, right? In fact, Jeff was there on hand as a team executive now. Signing the contract and chase said, well, now what? Let's go try to get us a Daytona 500. How about that? Well, that didn't work. I didn't win the Daytona 500, but he was the top finishing Chevy, although in tenth, but which is so weird because they were on the front row, they were dominating in terms of speed and it just didn't work out in terms of race. Luck. This is the thing we've been seeing for the last several years. Hendrick is always lights out when it comes to qualifying a Daytona, but that doesn't translate to what happens on the actual track, and these guys during the opening practice sessions were working so hard on qualifying speeds that you kind of negate the whole fact that there's a drafting thing that has to happen during the rest of the week. And it's been a little bit of a layoff here as far as this goes. These guys have been working on dirt racing, all sorts of other stuff. You kind of have to work your way back into this whole drafting thing, I think. They need to start focusing more on the drafting and the other parts of the week at Daytona. Isn't this been the 42nd year in a row that had a motor sports on the front row? Something like that. My goodness. You might as well have pencil it in. Every year you already know it's going to be Hendrick motor sports on the pole, and most of the time it's them on the entire front row. Yeah, it's just crazy. So chase said quote, I feel back to the actual story we're talking about. I feel so fortunate to be in this position. I have a great team with leadership from Alan Gustafson the crew chief. And the support of the best car owner and racing organization in the world for me. There's a lot of pride in driving for Hendrick motor sports and having the opportunity to win races and compete for championships. We are capable of accomplishing a lot more and it starts today, damn it. Boom. I added the damn it. That would have been cool through this a damn it though. That would have been. That would have been next level. I'm like, wow. Yeah. We're in the press release. We'd be like, okay. All right. Wow. Damn it. All right. Sometimes they throw an exclamation point in those press releases, and it's silly. Right. But damn it would have really nailed it home. Yes, that would have put a exclamation point on it. In addition to his performance on the track as you probably know, Elliott has been voted by the fans as NASCAR's Cup Series most popular driver in each of the last four seasons. In 7 years, now beginning of 8, in the Cup Series, he has 13 wins, 74 top 5s, 118 top tens, or 17. I think I updated it. One of the two. I think it's, I think it's one 17. I think you're right. Because you just got another one. 9 poles and is of course the 2020 Cup Series champion already. He's a champion. All ready. Yep. I would be shocked if he doesn't end up with more championships too, because he's just too clean of a driver. He's too on point with what he's doing for that to have been it, I think, especially in the organization he drives for is among the best we've ever seen. So I would be very shocked if chase Elliott doesn't win another Cup Series championship before it's all over. He will have a few, I think. He has, I don't know, shades of Jimmie Johnson going on. Shades of Jimmy. Yeah. And maybe a dabble of Jeff. A dash. Yes, a dash of pitch. I mean, Larson's for the most part, pretty clean, except if you're at the coliseum, but yeah, as long as your name's not Justin Haley. Right. Definitely. So all in all, so is William to be honest. So was Alex. They all have, they're very kind of clean drivers. Well, unless you ask Denny Hamlin about Alex Bowman, but yeah. Well, but Denny Hamlin runs into everybody. So, everyone, you know, doesn't get along with him. That's true. At some point, you're the common denominator..

"Zealand, Australia, every sprint car drive in North America goes to Iowa, and he beats them. While he's racing full time series. But who else can do that? Listen, we're comparing this is like the conversation about who's the very best quarterback ever. Right. This is like one of those conversations. No disrespect to anybody. But they'll all can do that. Richard Petty couldn't do that. I mean, I don't know Mario Andretti is the only other guy. People could say AJ, people say Tony, but not to this level. You know, they're great drivers. I'm not putting anybody down. Again, we're comparing the very best of the very best. Kyle Larson. In my opinion, bring somebody else to me that you can say can do all those types of disciplines at that level. I haven't seen anybody that can do it until this guy. And it's just, I'm sorry. It is what it is. Well, the one thing Mario Andretti has on his resume is a Formula One championship that might be pretty special. That would be what people would probably take issue with. And the problem now is that the world has changed so much. Kyle arsenal never get a shot. Right. He gets it ever run equipment that we would really be able to tell. Just like we're probably not going to see Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton run the Knoxville nationals. I mean, Louis Hamilton said he wanted to run Daytona. That would be fun to see. But what I'd like to say is lose hey, I'd like to see Luis Hamilton come around Darlington and I'd like to see Kyle Larson go romana. That would be cool. And I bet you Kyle Larson would do better Monica Lewis Hamilton would do a Darwin. All right, the gauntlet's been thrown down. Given the given the same equipment, I'm gonna make a lot of people out there. Yeah, this is gonna get spread around the world. These are great drivers. I mean, listen, listen, Louis Hamilton is a great driver. And Kyle Larson is a great driver. The versatility is amazing. I can tell you that there's no way in hail. And I won a fair amount of races. If you look at the look in the history books, you know, my name is pretty high in regard to race winners. There's no way inhale. I could have gone to the local dirt track and run with those guys in a street stock car. There's no way. And this guy goes and wins the biggest races. And he wins and in this lab we win the road courses. He wins the half mile and a half. He runs a short track. He wins all of them. On that note about dirt, one of the things that got brought up last night was about how much Larson was allowed to race on dirt by Rick Hendrick this year. Dustin long has a great comment NBC sports dot com. I encourage people to check it out about how Larsen said after he won the championship last night that I knew I had no leverage at all. Yeah when I went to meet with him and Rick and Jeff, I remember that initial meeting, it was great, Rick talked about how much he loved my driving style and this and that and you'd love to get me in his race car and then he got to the end of the meeting and he was like, you know, what's something that you want? And I was like, oh, I'm nervous. You know, I know how Rick Hendrick feels about dirt racing and stuff. This isn't. I'm hoping I'm not shoot myself in the foot right here before I ask a question. I was like, like, I'd like to raise some dirt raises. He didn't shut it down at all. You know, Jeff had mentioned to me a few times before that the culture and how they kind of handled their driver's schedule was changing. But I didn't really believe it. When he was telling me that stuff, but I threw it out there and I've gotten a race way more than I thought I would, you know when I was Ganassi in the beginning, it was nothing. I couldn't really race anything, and then it kind of morphed into 25 races in a year and then it morphed into 25 races and a cup season and I thought I would be something similar to that, but by the end of this year I'll raise probably a hundred total races. So the most I've raised in a long time, especially yo, while I'm a full-time Cup Series driver. Rick Hendrick didn't really allow drivers to race on dirt. And he checked with cliff Daniels who checked with upper management and he essentially said, we're going to let this guy have a shot at it because I can tell it means so much to him. And what he's so passionate about, what do you make about that? Because you've seen Rick Hendrick over the decades and how he operates his race teams. And this was a pretty large exception. He didn't let Casey Kane do this. You know, I'm torn. I'll say this, though, in the era where drivers were not having practices or not, you know, we can't test and all that. Does track time really help. Even though they're completely different cars, we all know the only disadvantages injury. That's the disadvantage. You've got this incredible investment, and we talked about Lewis Hamilton a little while ago. Can you imagine Lewis Hamilton? And motor sports, perhaps the biggest name in the world. Can you imagine him getting hurt in a sprint car? And he can't run his F one car. I mean, that would be a monumental shift. I mean, that would be huge. And so now you come to the cup level, is it okay for Kyle Larson to.

"Was eric all merola. Who went from three points out of the playoffs to advancement the second round over the final two laps. Yeah i think in the beginning just such an unknown. It was kind of daunting. Sorta speak the turtles big curves serves and that backstretch chicane which they've they've redesigned that actress. She came after the first year. But yeah just a lot awash changed about it and then just it's not an unknown anymore like we know what to expect. There's data to look at from it. there's you watch the race and there's just there's just a lot more knowledge and rightly so Anytime something is unknown. There's a lot of kind of thinks about it Just because you have no idea what to expect As soon as you do it once or twice That experience from doing it allows you to be able to understand and predict better what the racetrack is going to deliver. So how did the royal concept originate. Well it all started five years ago and marcus smith's office overlooking charlotte motor speedway. When i was a kid i used to love coming to charlotte motor speedway for the cable. Gt race. this was Like what is today m. sush you're racing on basically the sane course. Ninety percent of it is the same course and we haven't had the cable. Gt back here. I think since the eighties and it was a sports car sports car racing. I made rick hendrick competed with With a corvette sports car you had you know the the porsches and the jaguars all these great twenty. Four hour lama type cars. That were racing. So my dad and rick hendrick were were talking and they said you know we. We need to revive the course For testing they were thinking about driving sports car. Driving and Manufacturer car testing so we started working on Just improving modernizing the infield road course I thought it was a great idea. Thought it'd be fun nothing else. It'd be a place to go drive. You know some fast cars and enjoy it october. Think of Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen. Actually i thought you know this race need something special. We've got the nascar race and may we have the shortest race in nascar for a million bucks to win. Then he had the coq. Six hundred nascar's longest race one of the most prestigious races in the world and then in october. We have this bank of america. Five hundred it was really overshadowed by the other. Two races in my office is kind of up on the roof. And i can see everything really well and i saw brand new road course in the infield and i thought i got an idea. This is ridiculous. why don't we have a revived. The old road course and the wroval and in race nascar on the rebel. 'nother thing that sort of pushed me that way as i Listening to so many So many fans and drivers talk about Where they wanted a road course in the playoffs. Well this would sort of Kill two birds one stone you take out an intermediate mouna half an ad in a road. Course you know mission accomplished at. That's how it kind of happened. Smith's first call about the idea was nascar executive vice president and chief racing development officer. Steve o'donnell now called steve. And said are you sitting down. And it's not the first crazy idea run by him so I talked to steve and said here's an idea he said. Man that's a crazy idea. I kinda like it just kept pushing from there. I floated the idea by junior. And he said i like to watch it. I wouldn't be crazy about driving and Yeah i thought that was pretty funny at the time so he was still driving in nascar at the time so before he jumped on the tv booth and sure enough he had a chance to watch it. And jeff burton had some great insight In when we invited the whole nbc team out to take some test. Labs at the royal. Jeff said he showed up and thought. This isn't going to work. And by the time we were done with the demo laps he was. He was convinced that it was going to be really great. In initial feasability study was done with speedway motorsports vice president of operations steve swift. It took about a week and confirmed. The idea was doable. But marcus smith still set out to vet the idea across motorsports. I mean look at nascar drivers And how they race on road courses that the cars and the competition. It has Matured so much. I mean the the races in cinema the racism watkins glen. I think all of us watching over the last several years can see that the quality of the competition. The joy of the race is that you know all-time highs and we wanted to have a first class track World class performance track.

All around competition that will be thursday. Don't know if she's gonna compete over the weekend and we thought about dale jr. For a variety of reasons we love having junior on by the way season. Two of loss speedway's on peacock looking at great racing cathedrals of the past. Really long forgotten racecourses now abandoned overtaken by nature. I really loved it. I thought it was great. And we're going to have junior on to talk about that. But then i thought everything that he went through when he was racing from when his dad died to getting in the car the next week the expectations you inherited a fan base. He wasn't winning just the mental side of that in dale jr. joins us now and i know it's a long time ago but that that mental part of preparing for race. How many times do you think you went into a race where mentally you weren't in a good place when you're doing it every single week. You certainly had your good days and bad days when you could tell where you are last week mentally and where you were this week and it was happening and such repetitive process. That you you know there were days when he got up and you felt really great. You feel like man. I'm this is going to be a great day. I can feel it or you know you just had a great disposition and could handle adversity better and then there were days when you got about a bed and you had no motivation or you had no confidence You maybe had some going on your personal life. That was that had you down and depressed And then when you were faced with any adversity during that day or that race you didn't handle it well and you didn't overcome it and you can't fail part I had you definitely going to experience that in sports When you're when you're competing on regular basis you're going to have those days when you mentally just habit together and then those moments when they're just you just saying you're just overwhelmed and I was always affected. You know my personal life and my home. Life was the driving factor for me and so the things were good. And i you know. I was if things were smooth for. May at home Things were going thing. We're going to go pretty well at the racetrack. I think that might have been the other way around to. Sometimes if things didn't go well the race track and bad at home. That's for sure. If if i failed and i had stretches of failure you know where just. I was a miserable miserable person every day of the week. But how many times did you get into a car and say. I shouldn't be in this car. Never never did add. Just i was interested job. I was just showing up to work and supposed to be there. Felt like i belonged there but there were days when you look around. And you just knew didn't have that same confidence as the guy next to you. So when we go to the drivers introduction all the drivers are forced into this little space together. And we're going get introduced to the crowd and so you are exposed to all the competition right there in that moment before you're going to go compete and you can see guys that are that are that are Ready to get ready to get after it. You guys that are just you know. They're not they're not fired up to be air. I don't know everybody kinda approaches it differently but Can you say anything to anybody. Could you tell your crew chief for doubts. Or i'm just not there or did you just suppress it. Yeah you say that because you don't want your team to hear you didn't want your crew chief for anybody to think that you weren't you weren't allowed in you know and you weren't there heavy. Every with the most sports racing is a is a team effort. and nobody. you definitely don't want you know your personal issues or anything you've got going on. I guess were you. Did you know that that wasn't the jack man's problem that you know that he showed up there. He's he's in. he's prepared all week. And so you suppressed been saying they now after the rights you might note your crew chief and say hey man. I'm sorry as you could probably tell. I wouldn with it. This week i wouldn't today This is why. I'm going to try to fix that. How can you help me fix that. And you know you try to you. Try to do a better job than next week. But you had a big fan base like the pressure at a young age of living up to what they wanted. The other drivers didn't have that you can say that's good and bad but like be didn't want to let them down now. You didn't and i had a hard time. Feel hard time feeling like a victim there because i felt like the fan base was super That fan base was absolutely the reason why i was able to keep my job in certain situations when probably mixed guy got fired. There was a stretch where knowledge is going Pretty things are going bad with my job at rick hendrick In anyone else would have got. Let go but my fan base and the support that i had from the fans is the reason why i was. Let go and so you know being the most popular driver.

"Why hasn't he done that. I don't know our youtube video with that. Exact question from last week is doing pretty good over there. Dot com slash. The final thought. I'd throw that in there. So if you're a kendrick let's look at it. Now you've brought a guy who is a year off suspension. How good has been this year in the eyes of the boss man. He's run so good this year. I mean if you look at thank saw. The lead over thousand laps will absent anybody this year. He was in position to win two or three times. It didn't come together and He's been through a lot and to see him. Come out here and run like that and make a statement and show his talent I think you know the guy's been through a whole lot. And i'm just excited to geez just really feels good and got a really great vibe right now here in cliff and I'll look into a lot of windsor. This year are h. On more of kyle's raw talent put a car in places that You don't think it'll go and having fun wanting to win one the lead every lap and you know he just reminds me a lot of lot of him and So i mean it's all our guys have unique talent but he is a racer and I look at william. And how far williams calm. I mean william been Every single week He's been there. I think they're just getting stronger together. But kyle is You know he's probably got more rice thing experience than the other guys He races everything. there is to race and And he says it makes him better. And i mean when you can find any kind of car go to track and and and win when you've got two guys that went all races there. I think he's made a statement at how much talent he has. You know. peer pressure is a hell of a thing. Carry and rick. Hendrick says it can be a powerful tool amongst drivers. Yeah i think listen. They all want to win. And when you lead laps. And he win races at motivates the other guys they know exactly what's in the cars. They share a ton of information They debrief together and Yeah want any. One of them wins. motivates the other guys. So there's nothing like Th they want to company women they wanna win they wanna beat the other guy but you know it's it's it's one of those things that everybody wants to be number one in in the herd so You know just let them all win races and we'll see how it comes out on the other end couple more from rick hendrick. Which car did he want to see. Break this record. I didn't care who broke the record. I mean i just wanted to win it. Anyone of them. I pull all the same and You know it's it's tough when they're battling each other for the lead but the objective in this race was win it and whoever can win it that was great The fact that the five was first number and we decided to go back to it. this year. it's pretty neat. That was our number. But i amid twenty four hours. Gotta lotta history with us. A chases number alex's number would jamie's forty eight. So i didn't care. He wanted just one of them wanna rick hendrick's going to break down his roster of drivers and his personal relationship with each and every one of them. You know number one. I'm very fortunate to have these guys. Because they're good people. I mean i've seen worked with chase since he was fourteen..

"This is golf five weekly. Welcome back to the final weekly. My name's kerry murphy his name toby christie and we call this thing the final lap weekly. I think said that Let's hear from rick hendrick like wall-to-wall flag the flag here in a segment. To first up all four cars were in the top five. This past weekend must be nice to be rick hendrick. You work hard. You hope you can pull that off and all the cars be fairly close and For under ice together. And you know. I don't know what turned it on all of a sudden but All that hard work and the cars fast guys are doing a great job. Pit crews doing well. It feels good. I mean i. I can't believe we could got to sixty nine. It was kind of neat to on anyone of win but the first one was five and and this one is no five. I just remember how close it was not to be not finish out the first year so but you work towards having this kind of communication and the cars running together but it's just hard to drivers have been the key to the success for riddick hendrick and hendrick motorsports throughout the years. Here's rick. I had a lot of really good drivers. I've been really blessed if you look at everybody. That's wanna race with us from on. Tim richmond to waltrip. I mean you can look at jeff. Gordon jimmie johnson seven championships. All of them have unique features. I think kyle is gonna win. A lot of races chases already a champion. I'm really excited about williams running every week and alex too so It's like having a bunch of kids. You love mall saying each one has different strengths and characteristics but at the end of the day they work well together so sports on top of the all time wins list and team owner. Rick has been a racer all his life. So this is nothing new you know. I've i kind of grew up with my dad. And i raised when i was fourteen and i raised all my life. I mean that's been Automobile business. I tell everybody. I'm really fortunate to be able to do two things in life. I love outside of my family that carbon the center and racing from really humble beginnings and not having money to buy tires and ride the back of a truck in trenton new jersey to watch a modified race the day and for kendrick. It's not just him. It's not just the drivers. He says he has a ton of talented people behind the success of his team over the years i was thinking out there on pit road hoping to caution and we could get it done tonight. You know how fortunate. I've been to have the talent that our organization so I think we got a lot lot all racists to win and they won't musicians really pumped up right now and we've got good momentum and we arrived as wave as long as we can't yet he's just got a tremendous amount of talent and you know cliffs got a lot of talent and they. They have the chemistry. There has been much better and quicker than i thought it could be and You know. I just say great things between those two rush this year and into the future. One thing. That kyle larson said in the in the post race. That caught me was they. Their attention to detail is so vast that the grass being mowed on the property is perfect. While here's rick describing his newest driver kyle larson khalas He's an awesome talent. I mean he is just some of the moves he makes The quality can do with a car and different situations found a place to run on track. Now he's got an also amount of talent. I mean you know. I knew how to a new talented but you seem sprint cars and midgets and everything else. Almost three or four times a week but it's the guys just. He wants to win super dedicated. He's all business and Yeah he's just got a tremendous amount of talent and you know. Cliffs got a lot of talent and they. They have the chemistry. There has been much better and quicker than i thought it could be and You know i. I just say great things between those two this year and into the future. Do you think. Kyle larson had any idea how different it would be driving for. Hms compared to see gr wall. Someone told him that. I i forget he was saying the post race is somebody told him that. Man you you in a hendrick built car. You're going to have a great season. I forget who said it was. But yeah yeah i think that's proven true. Rick hendrick happy to see nascar getting back to normal Now that we're kind of starting to wean off of the covid nineteen pandemic things are still out there and you still got to be careful but He's happy to see things going back normal. It feels so good to walk down. Pit road be able to go on pit road and To say the fans in the stands in this day excitement when when we go to the track in a race with no fans. It's like you're gonna test. That's exactly what tests feels like so just the excitement and air The fans you know coming in today Fans overflowed and the military here. That was special. It's always a special day. They trivia those folks so it just feels like we've back you know we've been cooped up for a year and not being able to go out and do things and Just good to see folks enjoying themselves. Having to wear a mask what is happening on the sponsorship front for the numbers to deal with these sponsors. He is gonna dodge this question. Here he goes. Yeah we've we've got a lot of things. Working with kyle and selfishly. I like having entered cars on it. Because it's doing it's doing a lot for business they All of the hits we have on the internet and all the fans were selling cars and having having a lot of fun with it. So he's gonna listen. We talked a lot of people There's not any problem getting a sponsor tile man so they're going to have some sponsors for the five saying well i mean he. I don't know he. He likes seeing hendrick on the car. So well yeah. But he said it wouldn't be a problem putting sponsors the car if he wants sure. So.

2020 Corvette VIN 0001 Raises $3 Million for Charity

"You've been following all of the Corvette News. That's been coming our way as well as the five hundred news so we talked about both cars little last week but in the last seven days more news stories. So what's the first word on the quarterback that happened this past week. The first word on the corvette is three million. And that's a big word. That's well it's a small word actually actually but it's a lot of coin. That's three million dollars. That was the auction price for the two thousand. Twenty Corvette Stingray Vin zero zero one. That is the I production car technically. They haven't built it yet. The car that was at Barrett Jackson is just a You know it's one of the earlier models and yeah three million dollars huge money obviously for the corvettes You know it's the first mid engined corvette ever. It's honestly all bets were. We're office to what it might bring. Just because I mean this is this is like over fifty years in the making right and of course it went to Rick Hendrick You know big. Gm Motor Sports Guy. Nascar Guy I think. He has quite a few bear Jackson fines in his collection. And of course it all went to charity so you know I was wondering if for her for wealthy guy like that usually when they're at Barrett Jackson and they're buying cars. The cars are investments right. They're looking at it as a gun appreciate am I gonNa make money on it with one this this. It's gotta be part. You know. This is just a good way to give charity and part it's an investment but I wonder if I if this I see eight corvette is really gonNA appreciate over three million dollars over time like three million dollars a hell of a lot of money. I mean yeah if he keeps it for like ninety years and it shows up in a barn somewhere. uh-huh sure it'll be more than three million dollars don't so the the takeaway here is don't store it in an ice garage like stick it in your barn. Don't put a cover on it. That's how appreciate appreciate the best way the best way to appreciate a car but let me let me give an example of another car. That went for a similar price separate Jackson which was the original bullet Mustang that also sold for. I think it was two point. Seven million before the fees are factored in that was the the One of the original cars that was used to shoot the movie bullet and was in a barn. For a long time and resurfaced not even restored and it sold for two point seven million so all these cards are gone for huge money. But Man I this one I. I don't know if I like I said if I'm a wealthy guy like Rick Hendrick. I don't know what's my motivation to help. People people purely or to invest in something or both and I wonder does he get a tax write off for the whole thing since it goes to charity. That that's a pretty sweet we deal. I mean you're talking about charity and and just to back up really quick. The bullet was actually mecum. Oh that's right weeks earlier and it was. It was three point. Point four MIL. After before the fees we generally like to quote non including the fees because different auction places. I mean they can have different commissions and whatnot but yeah you're right. I mean similar money and a lot of people. Were questioning that as well. It's like is that really an investment. I mean will people all twenty thirty years from now that maybe never even heard of the movie. Just be like what is this old Green Mustang. You know and I want that one to me is kind of dumb. The bullet one like that movie is already sort of outdated. Oh yeah well it's very outdated but then it just move into the realm of classic classic movie. Well I mean when you people that are in the Mustang world and that muscle that sixties muscle car car world. They're the ones that are into it. And that's where a lot of the question comes from. Will there still be enough of those people around in your money. Your thirty years to even care about this in a high water mark I think for the prices of classic American cars like Muscle cars. I think think you're absolutely right. And you know whether the C eight whether that'll be worth more than three million. I mean it's it's so hard to say we don't this is is new ground for Chevrolet. This is new ground for the corvette. It's isn't just a new generation. It's a completely revamped car with the engine behind you so if if I think the next the next five or ten years will really tell the tale if the car turns out to be a real stinker. Nobody's GonNa Care Dr who has the first one but if they sell they sell so many of them that they're not kind of exclusive and and they don't hold their prices as well. I think that happened with some of the some of the other quarterbacks like this sixes and C. Fives you can get for dirt cheap. And they're great. They're Great Bang for the bucks. I don't know if that will happen with the c the eight just because it's kind of moved from the realm of sports car kind of supercars so yeah we'll we'll have to wait and see it was a it was a good price. I'm glad it all went went to charity. That's always good news and we'll probably have a big piece of corvette news to share every week at this right. That's how it seems seems things are

As one of my best friends, I have nothing but respect for him what he's accomplished is unbelievable role. It's unbelievable to see someone that can win and Formula one and and open wheel and and went all the championships. And do the things he thought I don't know how he doesn't. He's a perfectionist. Then as again, I I admire him in. Poll them in the high regard the motor racing network. Congratulates the newest member of the NASCAR hall of fame Roger Penske. All three of Roger Penske's Cup series drivers drove to victory lane in two thousand eighteen and one of those drove to a championship Joey Logano in its tenth full time season in the Cup series is going to win the two thousand eighteen zero man, I honestly, I I would have thought he'd been inducted into the hall of fame along before this after seeing what he's given to our sport into our community. You know, I think it's one of the best kept secrets in our sport. Sometimes you forget when you watch these videos of all the race ones. You forget that he built a lottery strikes. You forget that you know, his whole businesses built them on racing. You know, he's here we had our fiftieth anniversary of NBN racing years ago. Now, you know, so what a great honor for him to to be able to to be inducted into. You know, what is the biggest award? You can get in our sports. So I'm so excited to be there. Into watch it and to be part of that. And it couldn't come at a better time after you win a championship. And then you cap it off with being inducted into the NASCAR hall of famers is that it's well deserved for a man that has a big heart. But also won't you won't ever.
