Ep. 169: Helio Castroneves

"I sound great. You sound good. I should have on the radio. Hey, good morning Miami. How you guys doing? This is that accuster navy is ninety three point three. Everyone always get myself. That was perfect exactly what I needed. Welcome astronaut Nissim podcast. I'm your host Nate Ryan today here at the Daytona International Speedway media center, where I am joined by a three time Indianapolis five hundred winner and also a Rolex twenty four participant illegal Castro. Neves Eliot, thanks for being here. Really? Appreciate hey. Thank you for having me here. So happy to be back. I can tell. It's sexually people don't realize that race cards sort of you know, addictive people. And and we cannot do it anywhere. It's not like a playing soccer or football or baseball in the backyard or in any place, you'll find you know, it's even that sometimes you like I can go those Ranko rental, go karts. It's not the same. You know what I mean? But anyway, it's it's great when you come to a place that that jobs, actually, also pleasure. And and that's why I'm excited to be here. And for the second straight year, your fulltime in sports cars, so you have a little bit more free time. I guess right. But you'd probably like racing maybe a little bit more longer schedule. Love to be reading. I still keep in bogging RPM say, okay. Maybe we can do a little more races the car, you know, it's already there the cars there. So at today's weird doing the five hundred and then I believe we might be doing us while the Indy grand prix as well. So we did that last year Racal rap. Okay. But here we are. We're here for the roar at the Rolex twenty four where you're testing. For the big race Rolex twenty four coming up in a few weeks. This is your second start in this race. How did the first year ago, and I guess didn't win so obviously didn't meet expectations. But I think he finished ninth. Unfortunately result does not translate what the performance was was because we were leading the race about one or two o'clock in the morning in the lead. And I wasn't a car. In fact, when it happens we there was only two cars on the lead lap. And we're about to lap the third place. Unfortunately, the guy spun out factual Philippine Asser intern three he spun out as I was passing through the camera Di knock catch that. So as well a specimen through so I kind of like clip his front nose which straight him out, but send me to the to the barrier. Unfortunately, damaged our radiator. Anyway, he continued finished second. And we were twenty nine twenty eight laps down. But we were having a very good experience. Everybody. Amazing job special for being I raised for Acura. But obviously this racist not about being fast. It's not about. You know, being the best he's about to survive, and we didn't so, but it was a great season to know everyone. Now, I know who I race against which is that's the biggest challenge. Sometimes sometimes you're going to a place, and you don't know if the guy less Minh is going to chop you or his going to be dirty. You're at you. You know, there was a little bit of understanding who you race and and vice versa. They know a little bit about us as well. So now, we're getting started year two for Acura Team Penske, as you mentioned Roger Penske getting back into sports cars last year. And you got a little bit of wrinkle this year you've got a teammate Alexander Rossi new on your your car who drives for a rival IndyCar team. It's a sport. But it's going to be your buddy for the next three week. It's so funny. I mean Graham Ray how did a phenomenal job last year for us. And it's amazing because this guy's special race against those guys. I mean, I was twenty years in the in the car. Last year was the first year that I wasn't a fulltime season but old guys compete against. So you don't actually, you know, them as your competitor. Right. And all of a sudden when they join forces at you, you kind of like what to expect him. So Graham was actually amazing. We had a great time. Unfortunately, because he's too big. He's say even satis will happen, and he tax me as a nominee. I just wasn't feeding Costa which understand I mean when discards are not not very easy to get in. And well, they went they will win out there and find the second stall driver, which is Alex what it's just okay? Because he's his actually you start Alex as well. Great first breakfast, we have here. Great feedback. Obviously finished second on the IndyCar season last year. So you know that you'll pick it up right away. So it's great to and he's using Graham seats, so. Perfect. We didn't have to change anything. So we're like oh homerun so far. So, but it's it's great to know these guys in a different element like when you're not competing against now. We're a team, and I'm kind of enjoyed to be honest, Alex told us that if you would have been a half inch taller, he probably couldn't get. He loves so close. Yeah. And he also talked about that dynamic Elliot about how obviously fierce rivals on the Indy-Car side. But when he comes to dry for this team. It's almost more of a separate operation. Even though it's still Team Penske umbrella. It's it's more about his relationship with Acura, Honda, which obviously is strong IndyCar side. So it's not really like in Indy. He's not like he's coming over to the opposite side and IndyCar and finding all your secrets about what's going out there. Yes. Keep every cell. Yeah. We the team that doesn't amazing job the NASCAR side the IndyCar side, and I'll sports car site. So it, but it's still it's a lot of engineers that already work in older, although the world's team pension worlds, which is including NASCAR as well. But what in the end of the day? We're racers we want to win. And we not about to be secret of you know, what we're doing. We option Disbrow Graham, we hoping whoever we hire come. I'm with the same mind professional way. So that we can execute. And again, it seemed Penske you know, if you're talking about phenomenal team ninety body. I assume would like to to be part of the organization. Sure. Absolutely. And Rossi also told me that he said, you're pretty funny guy said he didn't really know you that like you were saying earlier like you raise against these guys. And you don't really know them know them, and he's Alex said that guys are like polar opposites of each other. But yet it works like your he was found you super welcoming both you in Montana, and he he's asked you guys a lot of questions about processes at how things work, and it just sounds like it's going, well, especially for me, I came last year from IndyCar. So I I understand the questions he's asking an incredible scenario that he's going through the brakes about the turning a power stealing. We all of a sudden, you're driving a different car. So I was trying obviously again, using my my car, I want to all wanna be it'll be a sculptor, Boise. Can be as quick as it can, sir. Because it's about a teamwork and it's interesting for twenty years working myself having stuff for me, and all of a sudden when you actually driving sharing the car, you gotta think up through. I'm very lashed will have an amazing teammate would just re retailer and he's able to always say sorry source source. Okay. Twenty nine thousand nine you're gonna stop seeing sort, you know? So we've got about a change that we're going to execute it. So he's he's incredible. And having Alex and great feedback. And right now, he seemed to come out of the shell a little bit inner member, you go into a place that you don't see. Well, you you compete against those guys. And all of a sudden teaming up with those guys. So we've kind of like, yeah, you know, the gloves is still a little bit halfway up just in case. But now, I hope you start feeling more comfortable with us. And hopefully, we can we can get the watch for all of us. Clearly, a lot of depth of talent here with Team Penske. There was a photo taken a day where one of us. Realized there were six Indy. Five hundreds in the photo with you and J P, PM and Rossi. And then of course, you got gained Cameron and Ricky Taylor in Simon badger. No, I'll also part of the deal. So a lot of big names for your team. But one of the big names this year Elio is is somebody you also have with Alex and arty obviously you raised against him. When it was the cart series of what's it like to see your old friend got here. I couldn't I couldn't be more happier to be honest. When I heard that he is going to be part of a Daytona this year and. Guys. I I can't well can't it's not a his vocabulary. Right. This way does not exist. It's such any spray Spiratou for so many people. And and again as I was racing. He was already the champion their guy making moves at the corkscrew passing a harder in the last laugh, you remember that one. So an all of a sudden I'm racing against this guy. And it was an fortunately I was part of in the day that he was in an accident. So. It's a roller coaster for sure. But last time I saw him was at India five four or five years ago. And we're chat we talk about it. So it's really cool to see him back. And no question he is going to be again surprising. A lot of people with his talent and racing hand controls this year because of that horrific accident he did have in Germany in two thousand one where he lost his legs. He said you're in that race. I've been talking to some other IndyCar drivers Johnson belt was in that race Christian Fittipaldi, and they have some vivid memories, I presume all. Yeah. You remember it? Well ops. A little I remember when to turn one, and particularly unfortunate that we it was terrible was a black cloud nine eleven just happened. A lot of people worry about the families that was here in the United States. And we were actually in in euro. So nobody could fly remember Mike way. He couldn't get out of the the country because he was just a few hours to actually to fly to Germany. But anyway, so unfortunate was a bad. Week. And it was and when the accident happened that time a remember was. Was a car that my good friend of mine. Also, Tony Canales driving with Monan team. And I didn't know which car was so kind of like really looked who had the accident. And and when I saw the front of the car, basically half of the cars gone, and I kind of like not understood in a lot of Debry, which didn't quite look like was a piece of the race car. Well at the time, I didn't know it was, but it was part of his body. Jeez. However about that time, I did not realize what it was. And and I I was just trying to blog because I didn't want to look so that we can consider race. And particularly our performance was terrible. So after everything happens, we know we heard, and it was it was obviously a tragedy tragedy, and but amazing recover with this guy. And so happy to see him now in race against the guy again. Well, I mean, you saw it on the track Elia in that ninety six to nine. Eighty eight window when he was winning the most racist championships the pass at Laguna Seca, and the the corkscrew I mean that will to win seems like we saw that later in his life after that accent. Just so determined the guys it's amazing. And that's that's faith, faith and destiny. I would say he with his family, obviously, his wife and his kid nNcholas, and he's still able to spy so many people, and they will still see his son grow up, which by the way, he's attorney. Alan Miller was my attorney. So right. I kind of like knew a lot about it through Allen. And I'm glad island did all the things that he did to a cover special. Unfortunately, you never think about something like that happened. But someone at least always got up repair and lead that he was. Yeah. And he obviously had a second chapter in his life. After that accident. You have a second chapter now your career with being an I read somewhere recently that you said you. Felt rejuvenated again last year was a new challenge for you. How did the first season obviously went really well. Well, especially having a kid and Ricky Taylor phenomenal kid and champion and more experienced than myself to be honest, basically. Yeah. So it's like who's qualified I'm qualified. No, I'm caught. So it's kind of like a big challenge between the two of us. It's it's it's it's great. I I as you saw me just I thing when I jump Ian in talking to you. I'm it is it is fun. It is I missed this. I wanna keep going as far as I can. And I and hopefully we can't. But definitely it's a new challenge because it's a new some new tracks new different cars like, for example, neck exercise is not as bad as for IndyCar because you don't have the wind pushing your head back because now we had windstream, but is still have the lateral force, which is very seamless. So he's still it's this position. They stealing, for example in need cars a little higher. This one is a little lower. So now you work in different. Shoulders it starting all over again. So, but it's it's great. I I'm just so blessed. I still racing. Yeah. I was kinda surprised when I looked at your career stats mean? Typically, a lot of IndyCar drivers. Even NASCAR drivers have sports card. Dalliances will they'll go run a few races here, and there and you hadn't run Rolex before last year. Right. I mean, you didn't you didn't really have very much experience. Did you? So was it a little bit of a leap of faith. I did never push it on to you know, they say, no, we'll we didn't want to do it. So I never actually push it. Because sooner they said, okay, we hire you to be an as quite driver. So we want to do it later on like come on guys. So many other drivers are doing can I do so and then trying to find a sociation because Chevy didn't want us to dry for right? All their brand. When we're Toyota they didn't want to drive on. So it was eventually not having a team probably made it hard. Yeah. It was always something. And and that's why I was not able to to do them in which. Is it's it's some fortunately because now. Well, fortunately, unfortunately, unfortunately, because they don't have the experience before twenty. Now, I'm able to join with Team Penske. Now, we're we're fulltime how much do you miss IndyCar? If it'll all and I do I mean come on years. It's like that ex girlfriend that had like come on. I still need to tell her. You know, I say, hey, Honey, come on. You know, that's the one more time. You know, like that sexy voice nights. It's I missed it. I missed it's hard for you to give up twenty years and all of a sudden like wipe that out from your memory. The good news is the transitions being phenomenal. Because now I'm still racing. At a point that is still, you know in my career field that can I can still be very competitive. And this is able to, you know, calm those arch of you know, should should do it. I should talk to Roger more often. But it it's that flames size being able to feel that. And and I'm glad because otherwise probably would be ended the press smoking drinking and be like, okay miserable. Is it partially to Elliott that so much of IndyCar seems to be, you know, I'm saying this as an employee of NBC, of course. So I'm going to be a little bit biased because we've got the whole schedule. There's a positive momentum around the series narrative seems to be hey, it's back. It's it's trending upward. And you were there through some pretty periods. Yeah. Is a sad at all in this kind of being from outside a little bit. Now, you know. I mean, obviously, they are a IndyCar. It got to a point that they're doing everything they can I feel that we have the best drivers we have the best competitive series. Incredible talent teams diversify it'll because remember not only driving in beautiful tracks. We go to places that it's rough that street circuits ovals short ovals big old. You know? So it's so different. And that's why a few that every time you tuning TV, unless she it was, you know. It was horrible watching from outside because I'm like on. I know it can do remember screaming to will in Texas. There's like well end. And he crashes like I knew he never look into the mirror. So. Hours. I should've done that actually. So anyway, the point is it's exciting. It's super exciting. There is no way that it's going to be boring race like somebody started in the from never looked back. You know, who's going to be or eighty percent, you know, who's gonna win, you know? So it's very, and that's why few that our series. I mean, you need a car series always being there. And and let's see I'm excited to go back to the five hundred again, and hopefully, we'll be able to test a little bit then hopefully, the car 'cause last she was a little bit tough jumping in the car, then nobody actually ever try and and unfortunately, crashing like that. It was I will so an expected, but hopefully this year we're able to the something that we wanted to for a long time. I was I thought it was pretty cool. I was I covered Indy and the few days leading up to it. So I was at the news conference. Roger Penske told us all that Elliott has an automatic seat to go for five and twenty nine thousand nine if he wins his fourth Indianapolis. Five hundred last year that didn't happen. But it sounds like to give you another chance. And if you if you win your fourth it sounds like you're guaranteed and other slots, you've got like an active. And I tell you what our peace NTC's, Rick both. They feel the same way we want to first of all we didn't wanna finish with a bad taste our mouth. You know, Phoenix racing that way. And I can't I can't think them enough to give us another opportunity because it's not only about me. You know, it's we wanted to be part of the the fourth and hopefully going to five but Pennzoil was while. We're really glad that the will to step up and the and gave us a chance. And now, we we're gonna make it happen. Didn't happen less. You have affor- reason. So let's see this year when you say happened for a reason, I mean, maybe the flip side of looking at your IndyCar Carrillo is that you were in it for an extraordinarily long period of time, and in state incredibly healthy, you know, you got your ride because of a driver who died and Greg Moore, and you've seen some workers. Unfortunately, lost and get seriously hurt, you know, the latest, you know, Robert Wickens Pocono last year when you look at that any pause that maybe, you know, things worked out for you the. Way possible. And that you had the career that you wanted to have and still get to recent. Yeah. No question of, you know, people forget that. I mean dilution of the cars and the tracks over the years. I mean for talking about thirty years ago. It was tough. I remember heating the concrete wall. Oh, it wasn't pretty it was it was tough. That would have been the first five or six years of your career until safer. That is correct. And I remember that in my first racing in homestead with Bettenhausen. I had a huge Creswell a hundred and thirty six Gs? Probably was concussion. I mean, yes, I would say ninety five ninety nine percent of the Cush concussion and these days you can diagnose very quick and back, then I'm I just remember my head her so bad in. I gotta run. I gotta be able to raise his my first race. But anyway, the point is. Even that they've Aleutian of the cars the safe though, the tracks steel of very dangerous sport. You know? There was always gonna be something that we got him proof. And yes, I in the all the hand I've been very fortunate to be able to have my unfortunately, crashes big crashes but able to get out of there without any series, injure. So in the end of the day, it's those things it's. You gotta be blasted. You gotta fuel blast. And able to do something that you love Renault that risk and still able to come back home and and see your family. Yeah. No question when I was doing the research for this. I'd forgotten this. It's been ten years since dancing with the stars. And I was looking back in an interview with you before the two thousand eight Indy five hundred you know, talking about how you were buddies with Wayne Newton Jennie Garth and Floyd Mayweather and Jason Taylor, Paul. No, no. Like this social circle that used to have back, then just had the lunch. I was in inducting the Texas home hall of fame. Yep. Man. I was I had just had a breakfast with Mark Cuban so okay, another contestant Eleazar other contests. It was great to to bring a back a memories. But it was it was a great. It was it was it was really good. I was wondering do you still keep up with any of those people, you know, flowing out got too big? I want to contact him now, but Julianne Hough she got married now not kids yet. But also the one that I won't Mark is one of them way. Newton. We still of like each other. That was a big event with Mark Bongani in Miami that he also being vited and many many times we're able to Chit chat with him. And and and it was great. But all the rest of it. I kind of like Cameron Cameron was another guy, you know, the super guy. He was you know, the heart hearthrob of they'll the the ladies and Greg great guy, we still actually site shot in New York. But once in a while. Yeah. See them. I think you'll be how you doing? But in in terms of contact. I you don't keep it up. I I maybe it's my fault. I don't know or damn I don't know. Maybe you're just more focused on racing. I think so there is a lot of talk when you won that competition Elia that maybe that could be a path for you. Wait Newton told me Elliot's got that factor. You know, he he could do acting. Did you ever think about that? But my English so poor. It's so bad. I think people will hire me as like is it what is Chinese this guy talking? But anyway, I prefer retire. My my dancing shoes. And I did my experience which was great, by the way. So fact, Susan Bradshaw was the one that like, you gotta try I did everything that almost they could possibly fuelling my power that could do it and well still going Stu sky's the limit. I mean, it's right now focusing racing. And we'll hopefully before there was a lot of talk back then to about often you got recognized. And I remember you told this story deal. I was gonna ask you still still I have to tell this great story, you told back then that the craziest place you told me you got recognized. Then was when you're in your neighborhood, and you were jogging around in these two women and a car kept driving by you. And you were like are you lost? And they're like, really, you're the it's deal. I mean, that's one of many many many many stories in fact. I wasn't nearly for shell Pennzoil in fact that was visiting the oil rig, and I was walking the street and people like you you it was not any. I swear to God, you you're the guy to go. And then finally, they come with the name Castro customer neighbors. Oh, it was like, wow. It's been Tanny ears. Yeah. And flight attendants. It's typical whatever time you go in the plane that like, oh, I vote for you. Which is great. I mean, remember, let's face it. We're talking about back Danny's it was the only the only show that was popular back. Then it was American idol. Did didn't have the voice. They didn't have a American got talent. They didn't have maybe they have. So you think you can dance? But he was indifferent. Season was twenty to twenty five million people watching every Monday and Tuesday. I mean, it's really difficult for you not be able to one day. Maybe one people sit down TV. I'm like, oh, look at that. You know? So I totally understand. And today they say dropped to about which is amazing sixteen million which to incredible to people watch. But no question there was I felt that was like right at the top. And it was great another two thousand eight interview. I think it might have been the same interview that I did with you you talk then about how long you thought you could raise your forty three years old. And obviously you've lost no the enthusiasm. But I remember something you said, then you said you'd talked to Rick Mears when you first joined Team Penske. And you ask them. Hey, when you decide to retire, and he said was when the fire wasn't there anymore for Rick Mears? He was like I went to the track, and I wasn't happy. And I think you said you'd seen the same thing happened was you'll me. Jeans man, guage stuff, obviously from looking at you right now. And from hearing you talk this is nowhere in your mind in terms of of leaving racing. And I'm glad you said that about Rick because reiki again was another people point for me to make this move to him. So I'd really sit down with him said Rick. What do you do? Should be my position. It was like, wow, it's difficult for me. Because when I made my decision, I made my decision in understand you and still I and he said the same thing. I can see you still have the fire guts still you wanna do it. But he he mentioned something that I I will share with everyone here today. It's it said, you know, our P is an incredible human being and Indiana. They stick with him. I guarantee you'll be you'll be the best for you after he said that I'm like start playing a little movie in my head two thousand two thousand one. And then when we moved from from carts to IRL I kept with Team Penske. And when they when I have Mike, as, you know, the tax scenario in two thousand eight he stayed you know, am back me up. So you start making old this scenario Cedric the same way. And I'm like, you know. All right. Why today we are partners in dealership in new Harlem, which is four Toyota and CD JR, which is Chrysler Dodge ram, by the way, we need a car. Talk. And but again, it's is just you start looking things that you're like, yeah. Yeah. Rick is right. That's why should do in. And then he's right. I'm extremely happy. And hopefully, I can accomplish their another go with him which is the Daytona twenty four. Was there an option to go somewhere else or were there other options driven for other teams? Yes, there was an option. It was we talk we spoke. And I, but I didn't wanna make sure I wanna make sure that if there is an option if there is an opportunity for me and for the other team, you we would be able to bring to Roger and say, okay. This is what we got your business person guide me. Let me know. But never was close by never happened. And and that's why and that's why I say destiny because if it meant to be will be and it wasn't. So how much longer do you think you can drive all my God? I'm just starting man. Years your just in my second year. I I no question. I hope by loan as much as I can't again, and they can drive just like Pruitt, did, you know, Scott. What's your one fifty in your fifties? Then. Yeah. Fifties. I see a lot of drives that Wael that imme- and still driving. Very well. So that would be my goal. We'll look forward to watching you then hopefully for a very long time and much luck here in trying to win the Rolex twenty four Eliot. Thanks very much for joining me. Really?

Yep. Thanks for having me on. Really? Yeah. So gotta ask this is actually eight. Number one question. I don't actually know this, and my brother's like you gotta ask just in this, and this is not going to be my lead question. But you never know what the hell's going to what I'm gonna lead with how many trophies trucks, do you have to because he's telling me? No, he's got two. And I'm like, I think Justin's only got one. I know they got his dad's buggy but how many trucks you guys actually have in the shop? I I've done a pretty good job at, at hiding that you have, dude you. Yeah. So we actually have to we have we have the original truck that we call that co in that's that's that's one the meant all three times. And then shortly I guess it was a year after that we built the first one we built we started a second one, and that one we call your and fury has been very furious and has not cooperated like we've wanted. And, and that's the chart that we lost Motors in and had transmission, trouble and just has not cooperated. So we have to Jim coach. Oh, few tracks and the buggy the black tree runner, and then, you know, razor to here, and there that we wanted to men, and we got a shop full of stuff that's for sure. What's the biggest difference because another gym co trucks, and I know like you go back way back to the first Jim coach truck that Robbie Pierce got back when you know back when? Co I got into trophy, trucks and today. I mean they're vastly different, but yours are kind of close to each other. So does one have a sequential gearbox believe in one's one's typical trophy, truck, like turbo four hundred right? I mean, what's the biggest differences in the trucks? Yeah. So that's how they were built. One was built with a with a sequential gearbox in it, and I would say more typical dougans motor in than we put the sequential gearbox in it, and it, and it would be the first one of what I guess Jim co would call their gen three trucks. Okay. Actually, I think it's actually what even be gen four trucks. We actually own. So J one that Robbie peers has. And that was actually, our very first trophy, truck and were partners with my Jolson. And then the second trophy truck that Robbie cares. Had owned that rob macaque driving the rockstar days we actually own that truck Verschoor period of time. And that was so that would have been Jen to J one. And then now we have day, one gen four and then and actually J three of gen four with Billy Wilson having having the one. In between. My two trucks biggest difference is we built one truck with the sequential here box. The second truck, we went with the with the with the Ford, the row sheets Ford Motor with a automatic behind it, and then we kinda took our time building. We, we did a lot more low CG stuff to the truck. And then when they were building it, they just learned easier ways to do things. For example, my first truck takes an hour, plus special tools to take the steering box out of my, my second truck. We can change a steering box in less than twenty minutes, and we can do that out on the race. Course with no special tool. So that's really the biggest difference between the two trucks. Yeah. Well, you know, all this being said, your senior, you're winning races in a tool drive truck. I know you just jumped in for silver state with a different truck that, you know, out of your, you know, different than what you normally driving. But what's your take on all this trophy trucks now? And, you know talking about all wheel drive, and, you know, you hear these crazy numbers guys are building. And here you are with traditional tool drive trucks to winning. What's your take on where we're headed in trophy truck, man? Higher much higher. It's getting way, more expensive every year racism, you know, everyone's stepping up everyone's stepping up their game. Whether you know it's, it's nicer parts. Nice trucks, full drive trucks, to drive trucks baiter Motors. And there's definitely, you know the sport. I, I wouldn't say is, is more. You know it's, it's evolving. It's actually not even involving it's depressing. And guys are wanting to go faster and, you know, my take on it is until until I am no longer competitive all drive, you know, with to drive Turkey. It's all wheel drive truck. We're not even gonna we're not even gonna look at, you know, work at it on our viral, now someone wants to drive on, you know, I'd be more than happy to and, and go out and do the best. I can. And hopefully went some races. But as far as my personal side of, you know, side of it is it's still offer racing. Still gotta get to the finish line. And besides the race here there, you know, it's just more parts of break in more parts to prep, and, and bigger Bill at the end of the day. And, you know, this is regardless of what it looks like you know, a lot of these are still family fund funded deals and, and, you know, we all have so much to spend. Yeah. One, I think that's true, right, there that you talking about, you know, 'cause I look at it and I go like some of these budgets and I know from a lot of these teams like you know it's funny because you went down the NASCAR. It will which you get to minute and you don't you know, the cost of running, you know, stock car program for a year and stuff like that. And I start looking at some of the trophy truck budgets guys are spending to go race trophy truck for a year. And I'm like, man, we're getting kind in the same ballpark here. But yeah, there's a whole lot less media going on around road. Like at some point. I'm like way we got. We got something's got to come back in the level here. Right. Yeah. That's, that's definitely what it is. I mean, I you know, where I wouldn't say, we're a low budget team by any means that we should you know, I don't I don't race with a helicopter. I don't race with you know seventy five support guys and, and a lot of fancy quick -ment. We, you know, we do we put all running, we can into our trucks, in, you know, needing getting what we need to be competitive on the racetrack. Then, you know if I have some have some money left over the budget to hire a couple more guys come down to a race or bring out of film, helicopter, or something like that, do it, but, you know, we're still spending a whole lot of money keeping these trucks, going down the road. And and you know, I can't imagine what some of these guys are spending. I just I see what they bring down. I know what it costs blows my mind. You know, it's just it's kind of getting to be bonkers Manuel. I kinda wanna go back to the beginning because, you know, we'll talk about kind of trophy truck, and where you're at and some of these race wins and stuff like that in a minute, but kinda wanna go back into the beginning because you one of those guys like you were dirt kid, just like me grew up, your dad was, you know, your dad was racing's accomplishes owned bride. I mean shit. He's the only guy know that, like just decides up and you know, we're gonna show up to Parker in the car that I have raced in a while, and we're just going to go and win, you know, like bad acid man to do something like that, you know. Having said, I mean, how was your what was your gateway like you grew up here? But you're one of the, the guys like, you know, like a Robby, Gordon, or I mean, there's been a few like we, we of jumped on air, we talked about Ryan are Sierra. And he kind of went down that that payment racing path. But how did you go from being an offroad kid like, hey, man. I think I see some doors opening up over here. I mean how is that progression in your career 'cause you're probably like me when you grow up, you just like, hey. Manam. Abi. Offroad racer, right. Yeah. My life is definitely take taking a lot of turns, and I mean, I went from of downhill mountain biking, and, and my dad was racing, but he was busy growing or cattle business. And so there wasn't really time you know in, in, in the area, I grew up in. We didn't have trophy cards. We didn't have always cool towards that. These kids, have it was a pedal bike. Maybe a, you know, a Honda fifty quad or a hunt. Suzuki eighty quad or a little eighty you know why x y the x eighty or something like that. So it wasn't all, you know all the. The toys in, in what the kids got to grow up with that are racing now. So you know my mic through started on two wheels started on a pedal. Bike racing BMX downhill, you know, one thing I do another had basically say a life changing injury. I broke my femur and, and it was a pretty bad wreck. And took me quite a few years to recover from it. So by, then I was sixteen had a driver's license ready to drive and you know, one lucky trip running with my dad, and Mexico introduced me to, to a guy named gay Smith. He runs the red bud down at the door race. And he ran over this year. And he was an accomplished Pike's peak racer. He was looking to retire and it kinda worked out that I was able to fit in a seat, and it's racing forum and he's. He's personal friends. Jack rouse, or you know, Sunday afternoons I spent with ample watching NASCAR races. And, you know, one thing led to another next thing you know, I was buying a late model late model race. Everyone down when Grand National acing NASCAR Grand National racing for a couple of years, that it was twenty one years old time to move east and down Arthur vied, and one thing led to another. Move back, east six years. How how was that, too? I mean, you know, like I think a lot of people, you know, they see, like, hey, you can be successful off road, or this, and that, but I mean you were highly successful in arkan- just look at, you know, look at your career and stuff like that, like, you know how is NASCAR because a lot of people wanna think, oh, you know, telling always moves to the top, I think that's the truth. But truth be told him. And you've got wins in, you know in trucks. I mean you obviously, you've got an architect ship. Like how is that whole NASCAR situation? Man. It's still. It's just like anything else. Right. It's just a if you've got the money you're gonna end up in Cup, right? I mean it's got to be really, really tough to just rely on your talent there. Right. So that'd be news. Definitely. There's two ways. There's, there's two ways to look at it for sure. I mean definitely have to have it back in behind you. Whether whether it's, you know, financially, or, you know, person, you know, family, money or sponsor money. Everyone regardless of what it looks like on TV everyone, that's at the top level of, you know, the top three levels and ask are they didn't. They're there for a reason. You know there are definitely some some people that maybe are, are above their heads, but had the you know, had to fight Angela -bility to do it. But everyone there is a really good racecar driver. I don't discredit you know, any one of them at any time because I was there, I raised against them money. Yeah. We'll just use danika Patrick, as you know, as an example, she went on crash, the car every week and just about, but she's still a hell of a race car driver. And, you know, she definitely is was there for a reason, you know, someone thought that it you know she had the ability to do. It just like some of the guys that are racing today. They expect excelled throughout the different levels. You know that's one thing different from offered racing to any other racing as any other races. You have to. There's a stepping stone and in you can't just walk into what you want. You can't just go and get in a Cup car zero experience where off road racing. If you have the money you can just go buy trophy, trucking lineup at the four hundred. So it's, you know everyone their stock are racing has proven himself. Yes. Some, you know, some are still gaining experience. And, you know, just just a matter of time that before those guys really shining, and I'll tell you on. That's, that's really surprised me Tyler ethic. I, I raised him and he was sixteen seventeen years old. And so he can drive a straight line down the back straight away, and, you know, kids one, one couple xfinity championships. One racist, get a hell of a job in Kansas. Monster energy Cup car last weekend and you know it just goes to show just some drivers mature different at different times. And, you know, I, I'd say I'm one of right now, thirty three years old, and I think, you know, driving better than I've ever driven. Yeah. Well and you know, not being sad. I mean, like he like we talked about you had to really, you know, I, I would say pretty successful stock car career for, you know, for kid from the southwest, moving back to Charlotte. Archaea chip, you proved you could win and trucks. And there's a lot of guys that have never taken a victory in the top three you know series, you know that being said I mean that had been a pretty. It was a bittersweet like moving back and I know you went from there to like stadium super truck, and you did that, and that was probably a good transition, just because there was a mix of dirt and payment, but was kind of bittersweet being like you know what? Maybe maybe this NASCAR thing isn't going to pan out. Let's go back to the south west. Laurel. Definitely you is definitely rough. It was it was a rough you know, I'd say the couple of years after I decided to move home or you know what a pretty tough time. I we you know the best thing about stock car racing. Any kind of national series to serve seen is you become a family with the guys race with. I mean, we spent my crew and I spent more time together than they did with their own family. So we re became a family in the in the friendships that are, you know, they're lifelong, I still stay in touch with with quite a few of my crew guys. And quite a few of the guys that are raised with, and, you know, some have gone off and done other things, some are still racing stockers or owning teams now. And, and but you just the bond the bonds you form when you're when you're touring around the country together, is, is, like, none other and you know, I definitely miss that off road racing racing five times a year and, and it's still being somewhat. Of a hobby sport. You just don't get that connection. And so that's, that's definitely the thing I miss. And, and it took a couple of years. I'd say to recover from it. I might have disappeared off the map for a while, just to break that to break that drug addict, you know. And it's I dunno. It's cool. I mean it's fun now on a heat stick. I'm a huge fan of of stock car racing. I mean, huge fan of all kinds of now. And, you know, I, I was watching the grand prix of from indie on Sunday. Watch this watch the monster energy Cup play Saturday night. I stayed up. You know, I live in Texas now. So I stayed up til ten eleven o'clock. Whenever it was over and I was into every lap of it, it was a great race. And, you know, we need all we need to all forms of motor sports to be successful, because it just makes the next one that much, you know, successful along with it, so just elevate the whole sport in general. Well, you know, all that being said, I mean obviously, we know you can wheel. A truck to e you've got friends still in their I mean, their chance like you said you're thirty three you, you still got a lot of gas in the tank, well definitely an off. But I think you know, in say NASCAR chance, maybe somebody calls for one off in a truck or something we need, we need to drive, and we know Justin can wheel, you know, you open to that, or you think that'll happen at some point, maybe I mean, you've gotta still have your feelers out or at least know some people in that industry a bit. Heck. Yeah. I my phone is on something. And I, I went in, I actually got gotta get back in Grand National east car last April, I think it was for friend of mine that you he owns red Jones racing. They run they filled it Canaan east car and Arca car, and their driver had. No, I think he was a senior in high school or something. And and had a final. So I jumped in and did a test gateway motorsports park for today's with them. And it took me out took me about five laps than I was right back up to speed, right? Where I needed to be and, and had the cars, you know, had an awesome set up for him if you're fast in the race until they, I think they had a spring break, or something, something kind of goofy, but, you know, that everyone that I can still get in and I could still do it and believe me, if I see a seven or four number on my come up on my phone. I answered. He'd never know right? Well, I know kind of the transition when you came back off road, you spend some time there with, with Robby, Gordon series air stadium, super trucks, and I was that because you, you were actually in the first the first year, but you had that I mean that was kind of the iconic year and I know things have kinda shifted gears with stadium, super trucks, and he's doing a little bit different, but that was that was quite a crazy year there. I mean, because it was you and robbing, I believe, McCarron, you guys had this crazy, shootout that was when it was still kind of finding itself and finding its way I mean, how is that to be a part of that? I know you raised again in two thousand fourteen a little bit. And you know, and done some one offs and stuff like that. But how was that had have been kind of a good transition for you? They'll just because it was a mix of bunch of different stuff. I mean, I think it's so I I I was fast qualifier Phoenix today I at the very first supertuck race. And, and, you know, that's that was a lot of fun getting racing stadiums being able to get experience that, you know, my, my asshole background really, show at Long Beach. When we did the first road course I think I eat everyone thirteen or fourteen seconds. And that's when robbing of the the mid the mid race caution stunk up the show is he told me afterwards, and then, you know, being able to raise an LA call. I mean. I mean how many people get say they done that? I mean, there's only a few that we're back in today's again, to experience that kind of stuff was cool. There was definitely that, that gas car type, you know, touring bond 'cause everyone was, you know, everyone was together raced we're going to race. I think twelve or fifteen times a year. And, and so it was it was a lot of fun. That way you went things transition. And in it went to more road corps style. They seem I still I, I found it. I think those structural way more fun on the road courses and they were in the stadiums. They're big tire high horsepower trucks, the other little, but they like to go fast hundred something miles an hour in Toronto on the backstretch. So, you know, to me that was a lot of fun. That was the only with the stadium super truck series that was only chance really I was ever going to have to be able to compete in X games. So being able to say I was an X games. Athlete for one year is, was absolutely at dream come through. And so it was I mean it was definitely a great experience. And there would be a lot of fun to get back in one, but I can tell you my back, my back, thanks ever. Stayed thought if one. For sure man. So so, you know, obviously the stadium super stuff's going going on. I know at that point, that was when you were, you're still in the class, one car, I believe, right? I mean, you had a hell of a run there in the class, one car you were just destroying everybody man. The little seating, this, that I think, for about three years. We want shoot. We want four out of six races for three or four years in a row. And, and you know, unfortunately, I wasn't able to come away with the best one desert championship any of those, here's 'cause I always see the, the races that I needed to win. I had some kind of trouble just it was, it was a it was a good time. It was definitely time to move up to the trucks, and, you know, so we ended up moving up buying build a gym, tow truck in two thousand fifteen. And I guess here we are right now. What how was that move 'cause I know, like, you know, and kind of the industry was shifting at that point out of the buggies and more towards trophy trucks, sixty one hundreds and stuff like that. But like your dad, I mean he was always known as a buggy guy. I mean, Bob Lofton it was just, you know, he was he was a buggy guys kinda like Bob, Gordon. He was a buggy guy just wasn't a truck guy, you know, and that's not saying that's good or bad. Like just people associated, Bob Lofton with a bad ass class, one driver. I was that for you guys all of a sudden go. Yeah. I think we're gonna shift from the buggies of the trucks. It was really it was a hard choice. I mean it was when it came down to it. I actually told my dad, I want when 'cause all rolled color I was just I was just beating the crap out of it. I mean, it was costing us so much to replace the front end on the car race at it makes sense to build something new and, and I actually just wanted to new class one car. I want I was a buggy door and I want to, you know, be buggy donor can apparently might cut my, my dad a better deal on Bill. The truck cars. So I ended up with a truck, and that's about how that story went, if it was up to me, I would have been, you know, I would have been in a buggy, and if I needed to put it truck body on it. I would put a truck body on it. But, you know, there's definitely a there's, there's a big difference in racing truck to buddy-buddies. Specially class one collusion. I mean you drive them fast. You can't to the corner, you break at the very last moment. You stand on the breaks turn the car and can stand on the gas and 'cause accelerate celebrating it celery so fast. You know, when you get in charge it becomes a lot more of a momentum saying they way, fifteen hundred pounds or they got a lot, more will travel, and they like to go straight. They don't like the turn, you know when when they start flipping they start flipping. Yeah. They just keep going. That's, that's for sure. Well, you know that transition to the trucks, man. I mean you kinda hit the ground running though. I mean you, you know how is that transition driver? Like you said, you gone for racing the buggies, you know, and it's just complete different driving style. And a lot of guys go, they go from class and one where they literally had to work there Asraf as a driver and then they get into a trophy truck, and it's like oh man. I don't quite have to work as hard right to go. Yeah. Definitely. You're busy, you're busy. But I mean that's my navigator Derek. He wrote with me, two years in the buggy. And then a year he actually got out of the truck for a year and then came back in two thousand sixteen but he, we gave him his first experienced drive in the buggy actually getting a racist last year when he got behind the wheel, he that's what he said. He said holy holy shit. I don't I couldn't believe how is the u are you were with everything else doing. I mean you were we were talking you were there live on flipping lights off. And he's like hell I could barely get gearshift and because the turn in the steering wheel and everything takes. So, you know, trucks, definitely like I said they liked to go straight. And so, you know, they make them pretty easy to drive, and you just gotta be on your toes. You know, like I like I wondered, I think we qualified second or third at Parker as Lee Parker and unfortunately, the transmission. But the following race four hundred we went out and we won in one race later. I, I look like a seven forty seven crash site at the silver state three hundred. Well, you know, we'll talk about that in a minute, because I have a question for that you set it up. But as I said it up little bit too early. But no, that first mid four hundred win man because I was kind of, like I mean, you'd one racist prior to that, you know, but that was a marquee like bam. I mean this is, you know, you've got the ball thousand four hundred. Those are the top two anybody wants to win. If you're a desert racer, right? You know, how was that because it was like you, you were no longer not that you were ever under the radar, but it was like you definitely weren't under the radar then. Yeah. No that definitely putting the map is, as you know as driver and I would say, not just the buggy guy now outta truck, I just, you know, a driver 'cause we are success in, in the buggy. And then our, you know, our media success with truck and, and being fast, and in the funny thing about the men for hundred was like right off the start. We got a flat right off the starting in. Luckily, we'd never change a tire redeem you know, how Jackson worked in Derek did a phenomenal job change in tire and under two minutes. And, and then we just started running, and I don't really know what happened, but we end up having sneak -ation trouble in in my advocated. Derek couldn't talk to the entire race. Only time we can talk is going through the speed zones. When the truck was quietly kinda here each other. So as the race goes on getting donor to going over the bridge. And there was a couple of lights in front of us. And he goes, all of that, that must be I, you know, just say Bryce Menzies said, no, we pass Bryce back at, you know, back on the second land, and this must be this personnel. We pass them. Well, it must be rob macaque. And I said, no, we pass route macaque then like five or ten miles ago, he was changing and driving. And he asked me so who's leading the racist that we are. And so he had no basically the entire really have no idea that we're actually in contention to win. And so that was pretty cool. You know, having that's trys and, and that part of the desert's really get the, I've, I want the Henderson to fifty three years in a row in the buggy. I've wanted now twice, you know, two men for hundreds back to back in and now a third -ment four hundred in that same desert. So, I sure hope they don't change it, and really just pointed to, you know, to see that Las Vegas growing out to that area. You know eventually gonna lose it in the next five. You know, five to ten years in that being said the mid four hundred dude, it's been really good. You like you said three overalls. I mean, I think you're the first guy to ever do to to win the mint overall three times. I mean you know. What goes into that? Because I mean obviously there's really good teams everybody's bringing their a game to that one. You guys included. But then you guys just it's like you've got that track everything dialed. And I guess we're fortunate the last couple of years. It's kind of been the same track, you know, and, and, you know and things like that, but, you know, switch directions here and there, but like I mean you guys are dialed in what goes in. You guys mind going into that one because it's like nobody has anything for you guys and doesn't matter who qualifies on the poll, who's where it's like the end of the race. Here's justin. Yep. Yep. That's it's my desert. And you know, I just think it it we get the season off. We get the season started at Parker. And in that race being so close that I'm just still kind of in that same set. You know, I was very fortunate the second year I want them in four hundred the week before I went and spent spent the weekend with the Jimmy Johnson at, at the NASCAR Las Vegas race. And, and go out bike ride, and, and I gotta be around so really, really cool, people that are were very talented at what they did on. We're talking TJ lavish Ben Bostrom, the gal do L, and Jimmy Johnson. And you know, I really learned a lot from them on, on mindset, out of focus, and, and so I think when I go back to Vegas, I put myself in that same situation. And it all comes back to me. I mean even you know two weeks ago at silver state based. The Las Vegas. And I think that had, you know, I think that had a lot to do with it, and it has a lot to do with my success in that. Well, and I think Vegas or the silver state race, I want interesting because that one would happen because I know you said your truck wasn't ready jumped in one of the theory, trucks, and wasn't a truck, you normally drive. I mean, and I know just jumping into different trophy trucks, like you know, we can all kind of a da- anything but still you're you're in your comfort zone in your truck. You know it you know you feel it. I don't know how much time you had prior. But had it had been just a different field. I mean for you to go out and win the first race in that truck like, that's it's a pretty big deal, man. Hey, yeah, it was it was a lot of it worked out. Really? Well we you know, we're making some changes to my trucks right now. And you one, one the bad care that we had raised race, KOA Twitter race amid four hundred with it. And then we took it to Sam sleeping. Oh, we did. One year and change the while between all three of those instance. So she was pretty tired, and I mean had seventeen hundred plus miles on it, and it was ready to be torn down. And then other truck with funeral were were getting ready for the five hundred. So just wasn't getting quite ready. And I was just going to go up and watch race here. My dad on and maybe drive around with my wife and my little one, and then I got the phone call us theories at Jeff wasn't able to make the race. And they wanted it to run. They gave me the opportunity, and I'm extremely thankful for it, and I had I had twenty miles a test. I've minute. The Monday before the race is all I drove at track, and you working with John dance when he was at Jim co we had a lot of senators Hugh, as part of a lot of my dad's success and a lot of my success if idea. And so we had a lot of synergy going ready. And, you know, he told me that the truck was fast, and that's all I need to know. I was gonna take care of the rest of it for him. And we'll be back with more with Justin Lofton in about thirty seconds before we get to that. To tell you about one of our great partners here on the show. My friends at my medic dot com.

And I know you know, you know, Jimmy he's actually still in contact with quite a few people in off road. I know I know his brothers, I don't Jimmy personally, but, you know, I gotta ask, I mean, you know, he you know, I know you get around him and he's gotta talk about offroad or this, and that is this one of those things where it's become like the greatest NASCAR driver of all time. Arguably you look at the stats, and he's right there. Right. I mean, is there some point where he goes, you know, once I retire be kind of fun to go back and do little this offroad stuff? You know, I, I sure hope so in the end he always, you know, I make sure he knows he always has the opportunity getting one of trucks, anytime, you know, anytime he wants the when anything's going on gyms and incredible athlete. He's an incredible person. And he's done. He's done something that very, very, very people have done will ever do. I mean, we're talking names Richard petty and Dillard hundred and, you know, just the name a few, but there's not very many of them, and you know, to be able to have that opportunity to share that same bond of desert racing is really special. And you know it's just it's, it's cool to be around him. And, and I sure hope you come out to desert sometime. I don't know what is limitations are contract wise or anything like that, or, you know, really, if you just wants to be a fan of it, and, and watch it from the outside in. But hopefully we'll see him out there in the desert one day, I know I know Casey Mears showed up back out in the desert, and it's cool to have Casey out there. I think if you guys will if more guys will end up at her when they retired from stockcar racing. Yeah, let's funny because I actually got to go up on the pagoda Indy on the spot or STAN, and I was up there kinda got invited up there and it's not it's one of those, you've got gotta have an invite to get up there. You know. And so I'm standing on top of the pagoda and here's Rick Mears, you know, and so introduce myself, and he knew exactly, you know, the name and stuff like that. And you start talking with them. You know, here's you know. Legend. Let's just put it that way. Guys won the Indy five hundred Team Penske. Everybody knows the drill at this point. Right. The only in we're standing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Only thing Rick wants to talk about is off road cars, whilst talk about his old with with, you know, eleven inches a wheel travel, and he starts telling boss stories, and I'm like, rat is this that I'm standing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway talking to Rick Mears about road, you know, and it was because he wanted to talk about it, not me. You know, but it's like I think there's one what I'm saying is, I think you've got a guy like Jimmie, your Rick Mears or you know, we all know Robby, Gordon like you and you, you can go and do NASCAR pavement racing. But it's like I don't there's something about offer that just draws you back in, you know. Yeah, there's, there's definitely that experiencing in unknowing. I'm you, you go down there. When, when you run a peninsula, running in Bonn, I gotta do my first one to use fifty s I mean it definitely the stories in, in the things that happened. I mean, the you can only share that with people that have experienced that same thing because no one else in the world. They're like no way, there's not there's not goblins out in the middle of bay L LA that are trying to get you out of L A desert. Well, yeah, there is. There's like goes cows, and I mean, there's all kinds of different stuff that, you know, that's all figments of your imagination. But, but you can only share that with the people that have experienced because no one else believe you have any idea, what's going on anything. So there's we definitely all share unique ball that way. And you know, it's cool that so many people get experience every year, and, and it's not restricted to only people that can qualify, you know, at a certain. Speed or there's only so many injuries. And if you have the money to enter in class you get go experience off road racing. And so there's definitely all have a unique phone that way. I think that's funny. You never know who you're gonna see on say a mid four hundred Baja entry list or something like that, like these random names. I mean like you mentioned Jim earlier, we got Bobby, Pat, the owner of the dodgers, now of a sudden he's got bit by the offroad bug. You know, it's like how does that, you know, here's a guy who could do anything in the world, and he's choosing to be in an offroad truck? You know, to me, that's, that's rack. You know what I mean? I mean how many times you gotta go racing? The you know, Jensen fight race four hundred. I mean, I, I never would have got a race against the in my life. I'm watching, you know, wrestler one cars, and I, actually got to go with at bump them. I mean, hey, this is my territory. This is my Monica get out of my way. And you can honestly say here be Jenson Button rights. The different class, most time I still can say Jensen by exactly why gotta ask man is we kind of wind this thing down. Got a couple of questions left for you, though. But first big one man, I knew you wouldn't did stadium, super trucks, and I see the obviously your pavement background and stuff like that, man is the short course things ever interested. You know, it's crazy money just like running trophy, trucks, and stuff like that. But you, you know, your guy who has been able to put business plans together and fundraising and find money and things like that. I mean, you know, I gotta think you'd be wicked quick and approach to or something like that. You know. You know it's definitely interesting. It's I mean, it's interesting me, you know, to be speak quite honest, but I went to a couple races and started looking very political. So that was something that turned me off. And the other thing that turned the office. I, I wanna be somewhere cool during the summer months, I don't wanna be at Glen. Helen when it's one hundred ten and two to race you know to, to raise a five minute race. I mean that's even fifteen minutes as a lot of effort. And so it just just haven't looked into, you know, putting it together and but it would be I, I would have an absolute blast did I know I would and, and just kind of something that just hasn't you don't come to ever wanted to use up my time that, that I have to, to go do it like a Cranham Labor Day kind of guy right where it's a little bit better weather. Actually, you know you kinda hang out on the lake in the evenings. And like you know, plus they've got you know, it's just super high. Speed and stuff like that. You know, I could I totally see us a guy we have definitely do that. And I said, I would I mean, I'd run any of it was just it was something that I was gonna have to, you know, use my own money to go. Run I, I'd rather go spend my family or just be able to put more of that effort into my offroad program, and, you know, the next couple of years, my goal is, is going to be to get off five hundred Wayne and ball, Dow's. And so I've got gotta use my time wisely. Gotta use my resources, wisely and make sure I can. I can accomplish that. Yeah. So, what's, no, obviously, you know, you guys you're in the county business. What's day to day? I know you mentioned you're in Texas. Now what's day-to-day Justin, Lofton life? Look like I know you, we text last week and you told me you were like at a cattle convention on the east coast or something like that. I'm like, what are you doing on a daily basis? Now, Justin war so day to day is roughly about six six thirty AM live out here playing the Texas. Texas, and we have a in this, where our expansion yard is western cattle fee, who's, and I'm kind of the general manager day to day manager. So we've got thirty eight plus employees as that I oversee, we got over forty thousand head of cattle that need to be fed water taking care of every day. So got lots of pieces of equipment on the. On the yard. I, I think, in my last office episode where out there for the silver state three hundred we actually went and visited at Caterpillar dealership in Las Vegas for one of our operations in California. So it's not all not all play when we go racing. We're actually out looking at equipment, ended up purchasing, that particular loader. But, you know, I was at, at the cat dealership out here in Texas, looking at one of my loaders that was in for service, and so it just it, whatever it takes to get the job done is what I have to do. I was out mowing weeds on a watch tractor today's ago. So there is no job too big too, small and usually get stuck with the ugly ones. Well, I know you're one of the few guys to in this kind of started when you're racing NASCAR but you've, you know, and I think, honestly, I wish a lot of guys would follow suit, you know, in this industry, but get Justin Lofton foundation. You know, I know it's something that every single year I see, you know, some type of, you know, some type of you know, something going on whether it be a golf tournament or this or that. But what can you how did that whole foundation? Get started. Tell us a little bit about that because I think that's honestly you're so many guys in this industry that have been really well successful. And just one of those things I see, you know, Mike man, I wish a lot of guys would follow suit and do things like that. You know. Yeah. So the nation just Dacian started next year. So two thousand twenty we'll be its its tenth year. It started out really as a as an inbetween gap when I moved from Arca series to the truck series. I have like four months off, I had attended all these golf tournaments. And I as kind of like trying to find a way to keep myself, busy, and I you know, I can I wanna put on a golf tournament. I wanna put on better than anyone that I went to this year. And so when that kind of got when that rumor got started I was actually approached by our local imperial valley, boys and girls clubs and said, hey we, we have this tournament, but it we're we're not doing very good at it. We don't have, you know, we don't have good attendance not raise any money. In fact, it's costing money. Would you mind taking over tournament for us? And so we, we did exactly that I've flew out friends, the vote dying. Crafting, a couple of other might my truck owner at the time I flew all them out from North Carolina. We brought people from all over the country had a hundred plus golfers. I think you know, first couple of years, really well, because we did some NASCAR type giveaways NASCAR experiences and, and so it eventually moved from being there their boys and Girls Club to my wife going to school. She got her masters in, in nonprofit management, the third so we the following year we transitioned it to our own foundation. We have the Justin Lofton foundation, five oh, one C three. And so over the last night, years, donate, it three hundred thirty to raise and donate three hundred thirty thousand dollars in feel valley, boys and girls clubs. My wife actually just did a presentation yesterday tooting. Feel valley for committee, I seven thousand dollars. Descend kids back to the national or four H confession convention, and Kentucky next year. And we're looking so January nineteen twenty twenties our ten year anniversary and we're looking to make it bigger and better than we ever have. And hoping we can raise lots of money and just continue going there definitely a lot of work, but a lot, you know, there's a lot of joy that comes from it. And a lot of good things. So what's next for you? Four. Let you go man. I know I know you kinda seems like you've been concentrating on the best in the desert stuff a bit. We're gonna see at the five hundred thousand this year. Kind of what's, what's the rest of calendar year look like for Justin Lofton. It looks really busy where we're getting ready to heading to Mexico next week gonna start preparing for the ball, five hundred. Like I said, we went to went to Santa Fe to fifty eight with eighth place finish with we entered that race with with the sheared goal. I mean I you know every race or enters a race to win but realistically with the truck and the resources we had for that particular race. We wanted a good starting spot for the five hundred. So we're taking a fresh bullet down to the five hundred. We're gonna go give it all we got and hopefully come away with a win. If not at least they have very competitive, you know, finish that everyone knows there. And, and then same thing, load it up for Vegas. Reno run the of four hundred for starting spot for the thousand and, you know, go go try to win the and. So by chasing the five hundred thousand by default, you're actually running for score points, the way they work everything, right? Hey, yeah. That's exactly what we're doing. And, you know, ultimately, it's cool. I mean, it would be of mazing to win the five hundred thousand those are definitely races. I wanna win before I retire from office, or anything, you know, I definitely want to spend a year or two running the number one on the side of my truck. Whether it's investing desert score 'cause, you know, people try to discredit what it takes to run for championship. But, you know, it's, it's very rewarding thing, not only for myself, but for my crew all the guys that, that put the time and effort in that the following year everyone knows we were the team to be the entire year. And so I I'm searching for that big number one. And I if not in both series at least one series. Nice. Well, Justin, man. It was it was. Fun catching up, buddy. You know this one of those interviews. Like I said, I had you, you're marked as one of the guys top five guys as I got there's more to him. I, I wanna know I wanna know the story here, man.

469: Indy 500 Review

"For motorsport dot com o sport magazine. Charles bradley misses the to podcast monday. The thirty first of may and today's podcast team from multiple dot com reflect on one hundred and fifty running the indianapolis five hundred stay tuned. Because today we're going to discuss it all the big stories from sunday's rice joining may direct from indianapolis motor speedway the day after the victory before is multiple up come. Us said it's an endle- to in become correspondent. David moshe how david amber good blinky excellent now late yoga and talk to yesterday's win. Elliot castro neves. You truly elevates himself to legend status by clinching. His fourth indianapolis five hundred victory at ties with aj four. Rick mears and i'll unser. I mean david. Did you think you'd see feel self somebody winning a full indy. Five hundred. yes. But i didn't actually expect it to be hellier. I honestly felt considering that his loss come in two thousand nine eight had to name Hunter right and twenty. Fourteen and tacoma south. I twenty seventeen How many bytes. Jerry get an. I also thought that obviously with him leaving at the end of last year there is no chance whatsoever of him getting a truly competitive right but at times he got a competitive ride. Penske and in the past similar zilly winds were little contentious especially two and two. But he really. Isn't this one dinning. We some really fantastic overtaken moves from the stall. Yes i think. Mike shank tim got it right that he he described highly. I was just kind of playing chess and Just sizing up where. Pollux was strong Reckoning he hadn't had handling award and Yeah he he could pass on the inside or the outside saying today and a yeah he is just strategizing. The whole time and so yes. It was a fantastic drive and then even when pele briefly helped by rosenquist coming out in front of him on fresh tyres. Rising face then got pulled into the campus speedy aside Couldn't use his to live away from holly and yet went heavy. I got back around on the outside of town one one. Ninety-nine he did catch out with a setback. Marcus tied him alert. You couldn't plan the exact highly highly. Ira indy Magnificent we certainly didn't because when we speak in a preview show. I've the only talk about scott dixon being that the red hot favourite having dominated qualifying dominate the practice sessions but circumstances just ruined his day early on livnat absolutely the impostor fuel site. You've actually got bitten on the ass by that very thing and so you had to came into the replay. The odroid tank could account just wouldn't refi and the yes. Same thing had happened to rusty across if that had been dixon's problem and they got refi need restarted at the back i recommend might still in actually but obviously you got paid for emergency service in And on top of having had that very delight stop Like just stroke him too far out of the picture. I did have to laugh to wants the end. When you're gone off strategy the actually ended up leading four laps. Oh god i need. Get the indexing ca. Do that but it doesn't require him to Laps in the final standings which is a bit ambitious. Even for scruffy days. He wasn't able to run it truly competitive space in that. The other thing we spike about was the youth movement in indycar on it was looking good with her leading wong. Lena's vk in running in the lead for that. I didn't but it really was unexploded. Really came through is this. The true contend relieves young guns. Yeah absolutely i mean the. I don't wanna him damn. He was the driver who didn't get screwed by that that stuff on the coalition everyone else to restart at the back yard made question about. He was very bold by two great a great positive maneuvers. And i have to say. I really admire him for looking at least bit intimidated by that. Turn t crash. That he had in practice or qualify. So yeah i mean he was. He's five tasks he's got it. All and the speaking to his chief engineer. Ricky davis beforehand. He says any saif off. But he's such a nice guy that how he does it. You just not one of these selfish aces. He's just that good luck and he as he handled the loss very well. And i think he can be very proud of himself in can be very pleased with themselves. He's taking the lead in the championship. Gets a him. The racing was pretty good but we saw a low of hiding in the early stages. Nobody apart from lena speak Daily seem that keen to lead. Why was that are holly it's I mean because it was a easier to pass it therefore became a a few strategy race rather than the track position race so they are all just tucked up behind each other. I mean sticks could not have rolled out the red carpet. Quick enough in that first light. I think he's a bit surprised that Vk got posthumous hurter that He very clearly wanted to just talking to draft and safe. Yo mike how beforehand that running at the front for a whole stint will mainly you have to stop. T- likes earlier The anyone else and obviously if if a race ran green all the way three classic stopped. Spirit you're trying to show them that lasted so literally four or do a short stint at some point so he is say. it's just a splash. The at the end. It's a shortage pitstop. Possible things being equal fixing might have walked by to be able to pull away because it was one of those races where people could follow place and You could draft really well. It was super. And i think i wanna give a lot of credit to simon passionate because sometimes he's all talk but He said beforehand. He's call was as good as the one that he wanted to. One thousand nine hundred eighty or even better. I was his remarks area. Whatever and then. Yeah the i didn't. He didn't actually make any progress. Is kind of light running around twenty twenty six But yeah he. He is one of the unfortunate that got pained for emergency service in claims payer and thereafter. He is just a rocket. I mean he came light hoffa ten show lou on the line. He did a great job. He was able to carry so much momentum through turn to onto the back straight which is where he got a on the Yeah because the other penske's didn't really show that fulham did that. I mean will came from the back row up to so the mid teens until he added issue. Scott oakland go pins in that aspect pit lane. Speeding Joseph just seemed to be barrel that thereabouts all day. You know the the the other didn't seem type that speeds the pageant possessed was unfortunate for mclaughlin. But i think you learn to look. It's a couple of times yet to rescue. Because he got off into the gray from just carrying speed into tents. He got rookie of the year. But look pretty downbeat. Because he i think he felt he could have gotten the top five overall which had been a hell of a stop to his indy. Five hundred career as he said he intends to be around for a long time and was driving one of the best looking cars on the grid. Another another big moment in the race was graham ray holes crash at two and two He's we'll came off now. And i didn't actually see this. I was woken between two and two and three and a half and by hood at behind me after the after his crash she seemed convinced. He had a strategy to win the race on fuel whereas takim masada teammate. Fellow welsh oh. Why did why was graham. So so it's a mess. He he could have made the finish with only one most up honestly our guideline why he thought about. I think that might have been the adrenaline talking. Because if he's struggling to make it to thirty eight laps on the state. I don't see how graham with being anything but vulnerable at the speeds Post to maybe. He knows something that we didn't. Obviously somebody took out in mindless comma. Daily peruana scariest moments. The racist took a took a wheel to the arrow screen again. That was a great commendation of that safety system. I don i it was. It was on the screen. I know a lotta people said that it landed kind light on the news and knocked the nosed kind of skiwear. So that compromise marry dynamically engaged given chronic their thereafter cited effectively him out of the equation a difference to hear the crowd after last few rating. Fronted grandstands knit looking like attach day. Then the who ruled really with Helio gains climbed the fence for the full time. So that will stay with me. And i'm sure he'll stay with them anew as well. Yeah absolutely are watching. Do the same. That was a bit of a surprise. It's still being driving if he'd still been driving for penske. I like to think that roger when climbed the fence but yeah it was really sweet. Same as he took the victory lap. Lots of people like climbing the fence and waving to him in on earth though Always see a race finish on the green as well. After those yellows we got. We actually got a race to the checkered flag in. Yeah and i keep omitting to mention. It turned out to be the for fastest indy. Five hundred history hundred nine hundred thousand which is really gratifying. Especially when that early yellow food. Stephan wilson shunned in pet line. Cut seemed to drag on forever because per race director was trying to work out. What order on these pain light sculpture gardens as well as the people. It shouldn't have been serviced there was Will will put to the back for failure to keep pace car speed and then someone else had to start the back. The failed a max. Children purposely violation so there are ten cars. They need to twelve cow. How penalize these as person gonna be so. Yeah that's one of the reason that early. La dragged out safer than to turn out to be the fastest indy. Five hundred his remarkable. I mean it's just it just have massively historic day. Oh randy yemeni.

Well, it's the month of may. And that means the Indianapolis five hundred is coming up lots of interest in that race. Lonzo returning to take on his second attempts at the rice, but we're gonna look a little bit backwards and speak to legend of the Indianapolis five hundred someone who is, who was works with some of the most famous drivers someone who knows what it takes to win that race and someone who I should say, needs, no introduction, but I but I'm gonna give him an introduction. Of an overview. Why me? Hi, joe. My guest is I'm FILA chalky. So just tell us a little bit about yourself. Oviously your Societa with Lotus and Jim Clark pitcher on the wall of the great man himself gives a little bit of an overview. Nine hundred sixty five June nineteen sixty five and I showed up Monday morning to work. I was waiting there, though. Shop deal in this trailer backed in on the bike was Jim Clark's winning IndyCar and sin as I saw that I thought that's definitely I wanna be so I started looking after the truck and. When the people would go racing out in the call and sit on the bench. Learn how to weld and whatnot. Put things together and showed me how to put up rights together in suspense in, then I cut the work on the lay the money just basically, you know. Obviously find out I could do that quite easy, quite easy. But. Didn't didn't struggle. It ended up going Indian nineteen sixty seven so I guess, I guess you might think it was. Yeah, he calls. Helping on the on the cars, you know, Lois thirty three Jimmy was driving. Mike, spence. Pete bill. Graham came when we moved up to northern. Sixty. We went up sixty seven. And. Basically started my career there. Great place to start. On sunday. We should say someone like Jim Clark. Everyone thought of heaven. Yeah. And everybody there, all the guys will young guys key vs and all these. These guys hours and Scott. So it was a good mix of team on them. Basically, we clown on all the time. Forever. Bob dance. Obviously instigator of all, the, you know, the things that we get up to I worked all the ways for Lotus sixty sixty five sixty sixty seven nine hundred sixty eight McCall. Ask them Jack Brabourne asked Thailand that, you know, aid be interest in harm to build an IndyCar. So talked me into it and we went to Jimmy got killed by the end. So we decided well, it's time to go. We went to and. Went there and built little Repco car for rent. Not successful year too late, but them kept blowing up all the time. So we never really got anywhere with that than my left. Thurmond back to load rip go the next year. I think revson drove finished sixth in it. So. That period over went back to Lotus when rid going back there. So I'm back with him that was him. But because of that we built. Other ill-fated for real drive cards. And. Went to windy with him and mareo Christ it than. Ended up working mareo week for the race. Well, that was the fest indie. When you're involved in, you say. A huge crushes enforcing a few days before because it wasn't part of I think the first weekend of qualifying was rained off, if memory serves. So it was all on the last weekend, and then the like sixty four primary coloring unfortunately, that was a design failure in hub broke. But up until then Mary was just saying boy, wouldn't qualify him. He's he was just cruising car. You realize the potential of it, and then number hold the hub broke. And that was it. We were we was through the cars tried to make new hubs to make it look like we're making an effort, but it wasn't going to happen. And that time, rent and grim, who were driving the other two cars, excuse me, at that big crash at Barcelona and they weren't feeding into. You know. Weren't any mood to hate it. The fact that them these cars were. I mean that no time at all. And I could see the relief under face a throng, but it was a shame. It did have a lot of potential carpet. That was so through the cars, I went to work. Mario and. We had a bit of a week at India's, you know before the race. The. He qualified good. And then Carburetion day when even dot running. The engine was overheating so we both at a radiator which was on there before. But. Bolted on diamond Carburetion day and up fine. Then all the complaints, we head to run, what actually qualify. You made us take it off a number sitting around thinking what do we do now? So I. Help of eighty Kouzmin. We cut a hole in the bottom of the seat tank, but radiator up in the seat, kind and plummeted, all up and just but into the race cold Turkey, not known. It was going to do the job and it just it just kept a temperature. What needed to be. That was that was pulled out the as the spout is supposedly wasn't sequel, second quick. I mean, very fast car, but held, I mean, those two side tanks, you know, if you look at the wage types, they were full of feel so it held about ninety gallons of fuel, those very heavy heavy car, especially getting out of the pits. The two speed gearbox them. And lo and behold, come in for the last stop pit behind those Lloyd ruby and ruby been gained in us in gaining on with no chance of beating him. He was on it. And then he had that problem pulled away with the field hosts connected up lost his chance of winning. So then the in gods were looking down at mareo that day, I guess, to Monday. Time. I am. I take full credit for that. The. So, but after the race was funny that next day when everything seven Clint Brawner took the back of the gearbox. And because there's only a two speed gearbox and top gear the, the running gear had hardly any teas that maybe one more lap. So it was right. It was a five hundred mile car. And so he had lady luck on his side to engines. On this podcast two years ago in Danny mentioned, the, the, the Gable could fail. I. So. Say he and then after that the curse of Andretti happened. They never ever not now. That's it. Is it basically young might Mary Andreotti? What was he likes with great? He was young. I mean, I think about we were all real young but not really realize you're that young. Until you look back and go Mike God he was just a kid. And then because when he sat on the pole in nineteen sixty five he was on pole position about brought the dean van lines, the bra are brab actually Bronner all they call it. Prior to that a lot of the old boys told them to, hey, kid, you better slow down. You know, you're just rookie here marriages, there, you guys, you'd better speed up 'cause Marriott's here, he knew are good. He told history. Knew right away. He knew he, he, he knew had to goods to do it. It seems like India rice you, you kinda fell in love with enjoyed being what was it? Like I think sixty seventy f- is the first year UN, they'll see very different today, didn't like and I didn't enjoy it because of well, the so much to do there. You want to go out and do that. We were working flat item on both. Those Lotuses were for some reason is find out later on. They were they didn't want clock to win our hill. That was the mega minds up. They were not gonna win another race. You know. For some reason, other we kept blowing her engines up all the time and I mean, we look back at the Lotus position they never had engine problem. I knew a couple of other things in the tars the Steiger that they never informed us about. So we went hunting sake in the wrong direction, but out, you know. A still a big shock for those guys coming over and you know, Steve under, you know, prize race. But, but it was well expected them. I always say joke needed Clark's disease, racy everyone life. But that's only meet joking. So, yeah, it wasn't. It wasn't a good trip 'cause hot whole months. And the garage is nowhere conditioning and we were in our changes springs and put it on the scales, just continually messing with a car and then in no time to do anything else, so that we were slow that was just that was it wasn't. It wasn't a nice deal. Sixty eight was about the same. That was worse nearly Repco because we had to rebuild the engine every night in the garage rabbit, non stuff. Never just didn't work out of felt sorry for Jack because the us, he's the world's nicest guy best guy ever worked for. So he'd never got his Justice there. And. Yes. Sixty nine months again, not a good time. The only time I had a good time at Indy was McLaren. That was organized. That was good. We had two car in you. Copy of basically low to seventy two and then right out of the box. And we went tests in it was. Denny home said, this is it are we at proper dynamic summit real wings in front wings. And I'm surprised at the even the guys that close to it because everybody start bolting on wings. You know. Even teddy Mayer, our fearless leader ends up, giving Foyt one of our wings. How about that? And Penske one of our cars, give our advantage or never understood that but. You know, we should have won that race. Peter had flu race day. Kill he couldn't. He was completely blocked him had to lift him out of the car after the race in them. Yeah. He he was electives like zombie. If you look at the film the last yellow twenty laps to go AL's leading and Peters back here and he's he couldn't even. He was like that. You see him in the car. Dan, gurney gets over the wall on the racetrack is pointing to Peter can't get up on his tail before the, the restart, and never never. He just he was lucky to finish second under pressure of his whole family showing up that they never you never got home. This family was when he's Paul Zane for some reason, all the read all revson showed up at the on the US it was a little bit overwhelming for them. But fantastic driver none, other very well, some great names. Listen his with Peter's poll day was amazing story because he died on Saturday morning pole day. Doing hot laps in the morning car wouldn't run completely wouldn't run. So we were in line. We thought about all hands on deck. So we're in line were pushing it up through the line change in everything, Gary Kanoute, sin, Roger Bailey and Huey. And I everything was taken off the card to define the glitch, you know. And then when we had it all back together, we just got back in time waiting to go up onto the ramp to do the final check Donahue got he would Dighton pole position on the pulled in new Donner interviewing what not Peter, all gather around, if you says, guys, if this, if this car works, I will, I'm gonna burst his bubble very word. And lo and behold, when he came out of turn four and his first slap when you looked up at track of the whole group of people up there, they all stood up 'cause there. Time then you he was he was on then then gay put four laps together put it on the poll bovine. He got when he came in and took his helmet off the veins were stuck up in his head. He had rarely, I'll tell you qualify. You go for it. So, yeah, that was a good. Good good month. We had a good time, and that's how we saw it should be so. And then after that, then I left Clarins went to Jean wipes and built Atlanta cars for Lloyd ruby and kill Yarbrough him one went to Foyt so that deal end when. Firestone quit. We left gene whites Madonna Fords and built his four-time winning car. So that was a chapter in our lives that done by tour of duty in Houston before you. But I'm good time there. He was. All right to work for us Foyt. Yes. While you were working for him. He put on a bit of a show for the outsiders. You know. But he was he was okay, good guy, another another great. Dr name as well. Yeah. She usually successful to the end. At Foyt while we ran. Jim mockeries? Drove Atlanta call we put that together Ford's we had three card George Snider. The other sister card fort on. We looked after our land car. It run pretty good. Good, good, car copy of clarityn, basically. What do we go from? So after that, after Foyt. I went back to Indianapolis and started working Jackie Howard's building cars, making wings, fabricating lotta work for Patrick ration- you've ever ever Campbell, fix lots of rigs. Lots of wing that was filled on, you know, never ever time in wasn't work. And. I went back and forth and tied to find my went on my gap year. California Newport beats hung up with all the bikers in gene, gene Romero, they were all because as to come to Indy and David Dana hung up crazy lot, and then come back to Indy and actually went to work for grand king. For a couple of years doing Bilton cars, helping than lira went factor Howard into Roger -beck's, and then to Hamill gone Nemi one day, when the racist Hamill gone up, not sex with. But I didn't like the IRL wanting so noisy God. I mean they were they were unbearable man. You've been your NASCAR sets. You don't have the headset on. You can't even sink that noise. So, I was basically an and I just started building stuff. Help guys out. Little shopping Indian. This with my life was making this make a lot of strikes stuff. Feel top shell drags wings and sprint car wings. Zoe commander. You know, basically, but Indy lost his appeal even after buddy, Liz ears deal. I didn't feel it. That was that was right. You know in the whole, when everyone wasn't there. But that was a trying time in racing path for everyone split Tony, Tony didn't kick advice. She didn't listen to anybody. He was he. Well, he was going to show them that Joe talknet points a point to prove the wrong way. And that was at the height when Bernie was really worried about IndyCar racing. Everyone was funded had all the great drivers you know you had. Even the young guys were superheroes in not like now for some reason at lost that whole appeal, but the, the, the year before they went the IRA. Oh my God. That was a. Mike Lynn mareo. And, you know, little island heavily at all film. Rick Mears the whole deal. They were all, you know, they were all still part of the chain of the, the hero image that India's always created. You know. So when you go back not, and you guys know the only people talk to Parnell, Ian Foyt Rutherford. You know, the guy's got nothing. You know, the background they don't have the background from sprint cars and. You know, which Americans love love heroes. So they're heroes AM midget drivers sprint car drivers who came to indicate a made good main everybody from that ear the road, surreal, all of those sprint cars, and midgets. I was part of their way of life. I was a tough one. You know, I said the Parnelli ones what, what, what about Winchester? Since that skirts me singing about it. And I went there because it was part of the championship. It didn't like it at all. I was a half mile bowl, you know. But them. Yeah, I don't know what they're going to do about them, you know, heroes anymore and everyone loves a hero. You can't not, you know, a Formula one. We've had so many heroes. It's, you know end IndyCar, but I don't know how you get it back or else. It just becomes a one day event, but it is, is the have a, you know, we all love to go to India. But when you walk out the nurse. No, people grandstand, you know, in, you know, it's in a qualifying twenty thousand people if you're lucky we used to get fifty thousand people every day at the racetrack all the good time. And, you know, you couldn't walk anywhere garage people everywhere. And they just. That, that one split that IRL deal took away. Trove away a lot of fans, you know, the, the different fighting between this, and that I blame it all, Tony, I don't care of take say whatever, but that's he started it never rectified it. And then the ill-feeling hit the hate between. So the split you know, that was never. Never resolved. He's still, he's not even involved anymore. I mean coming up saying, but this, this. Qualifying deal. What is twenty five eight twenty five and it will nuts speedway. Older will take audio this is our track. We make the rule. Them. Let's Geneva be talked about it's the same thing for the I don't you? It was. Virk enough paint skin nasty or trying to refine it and get it back in why what's wrong with everybody gets? You know, there's, there's no business going to be thirty three costs thirty five a couple bump. But it's not that big a deal. You're on your way in nearby being fast. That's it. No one's got the right to tell him that the reason Tony did that was to piss pants in card guys off. We'll show you you're not getting initial as only gonna be select but. It's a shame because it is an was the fantastic place ago still is. But it's like say it's lost. Hard when you kill today's it, isn't it? All the greatest sporting events in the world of gut tradition. Kentucky Derby, the Grand National SilverStone be named the Vall got it having lost at the FA Cup. And when you lose your tradition, let somebody then you lose, you know lose the fans and you lose what it's all about the Ottoman will never ever lose its and magic. Because we're talking about that earlier man machine. Go out there nuts. It fast you can go, and that's same with indie Guoxin qualify. Let's fashion go. I don't even know what they're doing it indianap-. How qualifying works? I haven't got a clue what was wrong with the way they had. It was brilliant, everybody lined up signs of their everyone's in line. Get out there and go for it. Now they have to have the fastest five with a bump day on a Saturday. I don't know how they done. Reversed everything. Yeah. It it's to lose. Those lease is traditions, and you're the IRS, guess what do you remember the ninety six win because all see Lizzie is not one of these big names, but a good driving is difficult because he wasn't even a back brace. Lift him in the car. He he, he anyone said it. Well, it wasn't a real five hundred but it was because the thirty three cars are in all gas in it, and Buddy Lazier time the last twenty laps. I don't care who you were even Rick Mears in Hewitt had to really step it up to keep up that speed. You know, he he had really clicked everything click, but that was very lucky race for him. Because every pitched up I was refueling, I'm when I pull out in takes off in looked on see the we'll pay. Or lying on the ground though, shit is only five of them on their pick them up. So that you sat guy couldn't see him. I told coups says tell him when he comes in for the next stop, not the gas at let us push him up, because he snapping comes in for the next stop where we Wham another one. So we're done destroy snap three. There was only two on anew kept sand body buddy don't go up the klutz that is pushed you. So he, he got the message them. That was a. That was a lady locked was his way but he drove a great race for the for the injury was in the back injury. I think he done pretty good. But don't take it away from wasn't believe me. It was a good win. He would have been there with all of them. They had to be nerve. So. Yeah. But. Strange. Little man, buddy. And a great fan of index has lost was a couple of years ago. Yeah. Go. That was basically my life in IndyCar racing. What do you spend so much time in the US I, I went there, because of IndyCar racing opposite? No other reason spent forty five years there. Then got to a point where you know. I want to come home, anyway and see what I come home and got married. We won't talk about that. No. It was perfect. It worked out fine. We this little house here is able to put my shops in off. I go the first job. I got was. Cub up there. Jody shack is tug. That was my first first job coming home here. I should say in your watch loin of feta's also says, I mean star names and caused stay history, the stuff that I worked on built, you know, this will be for peptic collies March f two car, which is some good it back to life in them going to run. I think having a, a meeting of France for him, but I do a lot of foam the to stuff a lot of former to wing and a lot of them lot of form. The one. So long as race drivers around that need, what I call driver aids. Wing and rear wing. That's our driver aid. The can't drive the autumn. I knew usually the first thing that wack. While India was better because you didn't get away that you're going to get you're gonna get the laws. India's as a rice away say it's a rice that, that cheese USA win, but it's also rice that you. Preparation level required even going back. Well, the Bill. Yeah. Bill, the Carter on five hundred mile, but the driver is mindset, is assume importance will if you if you know her good, you are your patient, like Rutherford when he started last won the race. He was patient. He knew how long he five hundred mile. Ray wasn't gonna do it all burns ties up. He just click those guys off, you know, one after the other race came to him. And he knew that, but, you know, like I'll answer. He's, he's a smart as he the race comes to him. He's, he's, he's never been a contender to win until the last twenty laps Nova sudden here he comes up on the on the leaderboard. What did he come from? He just bides his time and, you know, doesn't abuse the car. Like I say it's. Michael year, he should have won the a two lap lead, you know, thrice dot car in kept him. Slowdown michael. And then ended up junior winning the. Which was a bit of toilet anyway. But it was it was there at the right time, you know start. Lady luck and you'd probably are better being lucky than good at Indy. My dress. He's gonna many times he, he should've been a four time winner easy, but, but very gracious man boked him last week. A jockey. How you doing? Who's this? Mario. But as voice change, you know, we have a little chat about missing that he'll always bring that up. He'll always remembered that, that was the one time is life for everything changed when he won. He was you think about marry was so popular. Everybody's basic kids, all loved Mary things because he was small kids all related to. What not? But he was very gracious winter on them still is. You know, time for everybody. It's still driving in the city. They hope they honor him, correctly, it, India, hopefully do a good job. And he deserves it. Inflates got enough to have given him more than God, giving them a zone bronze bricks. Now. But. Yeah. So I can always have a thought about every time media was talk about Indian drivers one forget about one thing. The guy who put the heads on the trophy, I keep saying that they never ever get any. You know, they don't get any accolades at all on. You notice like mechanic of you have to call it, not with the car. Don zimmerman. Should John, you wouldn't have a job in this? We built race card law. The way it is all about the car. Remember the movie, the Betsy? I was one of the great scenes in them. When Lawrence alleviate who was given his son for his birthday, present gave him the car, the Betsy built it for him on then gave him all the stocks and shares. And you see the kid though shares, he never even looked at the car, and you'll mangoes. It's. Car. What are you thinking? They didn't get it. You know. That's what made those stocks. And sure summer's almost here and old navy's got thousands of summer's hottest styles on sale now in stores from just five bucks. Get all your favorites, like t's and tanks for just five bucks. Shorts for just ten bucks and jeans addresses, swimwear for just fifteen bucks. Can't wait to wear it by online and pick up in store for free today new summer styles. This five ten and fifteen bucks in stores. Now at old navy. Valid five thirteen to five nineteen in stores and select styles only. What was it like working with this, Jim clock? Yeah. Perfect. You knew the carb is righty is gonna get in. And when the race pole position jozy he was so easy. It was not Jackie Stewart said of him once he was explaining. He said he said, I even have it. He said the reason that we're so good is because we see things that look like in slow motion, because in slow motion, we go faster. We don't know our limits and any said, Jimmy Clark always head that he never had very rarely had to run. Ten ten sir, even he was just came just a natural thing. You know. Unday. He proved time time game. So at Indy it wasn't that big a deal for him, really. Wasn't. He daft straight out there. Oh skies to confide race cars Jackie's. Good. There's anybody but Graham struggled because if he didn't like the place if you don't like it, you're not gonna go. It's not not going to happen. You know. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. Well. Which is interesting question is still one thing about that race that I do know that? And that Colin Chapman to Searle, Audrey who was our a seat timekeeper with him. And his secretary, Naomi all set up headers charts stuff Anees scored the race on their score was right. A new sack said note, we've scored a dish way, and then it was a bunch of girls. I knew that hung out the six of every race in day 'em. They scored only Indy. Five hundred said, look, we don't miss we. We're sitting we girls got Jim Clark a lap ahead of Graham Hill. Simple is that I think they missed him when he spun intern four. You can see him. He's got any stall of car hung up the bind waiting for everybody gotten. You see him. He'll let's Brady roles gum cats in any goes into the pits because he didn't come by on the. Track. They missed him. So he came in chains. Tars died, again, on the I think that's what they missed. Too many people who have scored at rate and Cyril, Audrey news. Guys didn't miss believe you don't they, they don't them. They don't miss score psych that, but I think a lot a lot to do with him. Who was Jimmy didn't want him to win. Another race didn't them. You know, George big Noddy on the American car and. The other one Parnelli win mean that was another Clarke should have been black flagged. And I mean, if you've ever looked Jimmy sees completely black the oil coming out on Eli's car. Would have been his third win. But didn't work that way. But after that race in sixty three was Cornell. Anneli. Have to be sixty three. He was a little upset with that. But he was very good. Friends Parnelli never progress him win anything. But he just did come into God's said afterwards in the next day he commended the new said, I'm going to stay here for week. Let's get a car ready for Trent are Milwaukee, not sure, which one any winter. Spying, Milwaukee today. It came up to lap Foyt with the but Ken ups to go just need backed off. He wouldn't. He wouldn't do it. He, he didn't want him barris, which is fine. But yeah, he was obese to get into some good Barney's before it down the few beers. Folksy net car. Not bad driver. Really? I think he was think he was compatible anybody around at the time, but I think it was a lot of. You know the, the roadsters were gone visit right? Ms on will all visit. Bit of a you know, the. Lime eases. A con coming over here stealing our glory and whatnot. I think it was that. Part of it. Not of people didn't like. Lotus team. Didn't like green for start on them. You know, it was anything they could do to. Put a thorn in their side. They did. But. But they all have spent Clark. He was a different to that said the kind of animal say tools, the pains in spread set the he's in the Jeff problems with some of the some of the locals. No, not really in the cat. But then they date on a way you know, they just didn't I think there were more upset because the road Sousa die that was one thing that really, really is those guys were still into the Rosen in all of a sudden, bingo, the Lightman died on all the guys that I'm not going to arrays Cobol the next year. Most people had Zony one roadster Hurtubise kept that fly going, I think, maybe Gordon Johncock moving the last competitive guide around the roadster Indy. After Foyt at one whatnot, but them that was it that really hurt. Roles to remember was the PETA me of indie, you built it you by Watson or the that was your car. He built your India done everything you showed up at Indy the correct way with your car and driver. And dot and raced. Lost its lost all that. And. Killed us. You know, fabricators we were building, you know race cars parts and stuff that went south Mond Delara came on the scene. Abilities cars that don't really look nice to not hazing to the I in the modern world. You know, I keep posting on Facebook. That bribe him Gordon brab, the low Mario's Lotus and whatnot. Look, if you got a spec car win could pretty make it nice. They don't see that meant if you're gonna spec car, you can do any design you want, so why not make. And I said, why don't you hard Gordon Murray to pencil, you one up, you know? Nice looking. I don't like these futuristic thing, bent wings and bent deals. And, you know, like form the electric a little bit. They're missing the boat too. They should have a much better looking car than they've God under think the, the viewing public likes to see cooler in race card is showing some India, that's the, the whole car design saw its vanished doesn't. Three twelve Ferrari would look like Indy. You know, I mean are cool up. Look, are any any old former on cars nuttier. You know, the Schapper L was the last really good-looking car, there was, nobody copy that concept that was around for a while, you know, nobody thought wait a minute. And it was looking right in the eye. You know what he needed? But them. Yeah, I, I just felt really sad that India Zoya it is. And I don't know how you change of no idea because it's in the hands of people who are not raised car. People are all businessmen looking out for, you know. India's to have. No advertising. You knew the months of may you showed up in Indianapolis was going to be a race. You bring your car. That was was never advertised. It was probably about thirty people in the front office. The ran that show with the biggest crowds. You know, I mean my gone, a now there's four hundred people working there, something all bumping into each other all trying to do something. Get rescue rock band. Let's do this do. They're not what a spot not about that at all. When was the lowest votes. Indy. The last time I worked at Indy was on Buddy, Lazier car. Okay. Yeah. I was it not six. A car but I still worked in around the you know, in shops doing my own seeing, but that was last actual time, then after that I didn't well the next year. So buddy when buddy run, Iran, call, you know, we run Reynard 'cause hadn't Irael hadn't really. Started their new the nixed year when they far does things up. You couldn't it was at disorientated. You couldn't hear yourself. You know, you know what I said the league coups said a league, I'm not coming to these anymore, will, you're the fuel is that no I can't handle this. This is not. This is not what I I'll work back at the shop, which I did. But I'm not I'm not coming to these anymore. Sorry, but there were horrendous you mean that the turbos were nice sound, but there were nothing like a, you know, twenty five Chevrolets pharma NASCAR just the same same deal has been fascinating to Heo. You'll soy just finishing is a is a great proudest moment from you'll time India springs to mind. Yes. Driving Danny Geis's station wagon into the swimming pool at the. At classic motor loads by accident or design. In front of a full audience. Ronkainen. Into the bottom, but my proudest moment. Well, I still think my McLaren the because so many bad times in any but going with going with McLaren car, you help build, you know, right out of the box fast and made life so much easier. You know, we had a pretty but maybe building, gene white cars, Bill. I didn't know if he could build him or not this young guys took it on built three of them the all finished, you know it in top ten, so that's basically. There's so many moments, you know you can. But I think personally is what you get out of what you've done yourself, but, you know, the work if done. Continue. A lot of the things role in it ending, you know, my part number crashing making wings. Done. Tom seaver? Three in one week. Pal pow pow net green car to what was name. Anderson looked after sneaky, hitting the wall, and it was a little tiny wing. He was running called postage stamp. But then, yeah, just keep in keeping lot of the guys going, and working, you know, working on IndyCar. That's what we did. And everybody everybody admired and appreciated it. And then there was lots of doing it, you know, most teams had good. Fabricators satisfied is no-one continued, the trend dine trading not, you know shame but only. Latian vintage world. You know, there's nothing you can do an IndyCar everything you have to buy sanctioned stamp that you can't to anything on this car, why. I mean, most innovative truck in the world and they killed the thing that made it famous bring your car loan come on, because through the Balkan wiz, same deal complies the rules run it. But the turbine that was a great innovation wonderful to see it. They ally they never India was. All the bud. The interesting people had interest in movement, different cars, and different ideas.

Rick Mirza: CEO of Daulat | #ThePlaybook 234

"On this episode of the playbook I have rick mears. Ceo of Daulat. And we are going to talk about the ten things not to invest in and also. The effect of your parents did not give allowance. Join me for all of this. More on the playbook. This is entrepreneurs the playbook each week. I bring you some of the greatest athletes celebrities and entrepreneurs to talk about their personal and professional playbook to success in what made them champions on the field and in the boardroom. I'm your host David Meltzer. Is Dave Meltzer with entrepreneurs the playbook and I have a super noir. That's right a young successful good looking guy you can see right there straight from the playbook closet I have Rick Mercy. He's a Co Daulat and he has an upcoming book. I love the name. It's the ten things not to invest in. But before I get to that Rick. Welcome to the playbook. Thank you great to be here. Awesome man well. You know one of the things that I was doing research. Is that all great men. I believe are made not born and you have quite an interesting upbringing. So I thought maybe we'd start there and tell me the most influential things that have happened in that upbringing. That has made you such a success. Church so I I'd like to say that we're still on the journey to success I it's a never ending journey. My opinion success in my opinion can be a lot of things in In Detroit Times right now. It's just learning growing involving on adopting to everything so a little bit about me. I was born in Pakistan and Karachi Pakistan Mike Parents moved to Baltimore Maryland. in in the East Coast back in two thousand nine in nineteen four. I'm sorry And we moved out of Baltimore Maryland in two thousand and two to southern California That bought me to California where now I'm headquartered live here with my family in the San Francisco Bay area but a lot of the pivotal moments. That happened in my life happened once had moved to Baltimore Yeah I had traveled a little bit as a very small you know a young child with the family etc but had never come to the states so off first time lining JFK and the drive from there to To Baltimore and then all the experiences that came all at once. It was very very overwhelming but I learned a lot of at the first thing I learned was how to make money because you know not as alert. You don't have allowances friends. I went to school and you know this is for my allowance and I could do this this money I was giving like. I'm not being given US money back at home. You know so yeah. I started a very young cleaning cars from my dad. He had a small side business he was doing to produce exciting comes of looking cars a back and he would listen to the penny saver and who's no craigslist or that stuff so I was? Yeah my kids Free Gallery. Thome as to get my first nanny from the penny saver. Why is that somebody fabulous? Well question though you know here we are in compressed. Times of uncertainty accelerated change. And you know you and I think the same right where the exact same position when you landed. Jfk Yearn compress uncertainty and accelerated change. And you went to. I WANNA make money. What do you think it was? You know a lot of people. Don't go there. I go to the opposite side. I would say third of the people be like how do I make money? Third of the people will say how do I just exist sustain myself and then the other third will be like? Oh Shit and they're a disaster. You've to the group that I'm in when I see that's where the margins that millionaires are made in when things are compressed and things are changing fast and like all right. How can I make some money Because there's some opportunity. What do you think that? Is you think that's inherent in the way you know. Your genetics are or the way you were raised. What do you think gives you that mindset? I I can't say for sure as far as Unisys. Genetics are not. Because there's so many people that catch onto this later on in life of is a passion that they realize when Sake tried other things If you will but for most people I think it's been since childhood You know it was. It would be upbringing in my opinion The way my parents raised me not teaching me these things but showing me these things a lot of what I picked up was and I'm sure you did and other successful entrepreneurs in the world it can up by seeing our parents do what they did or or other people. We look up to so from savings to investing to learning of being form of growing success of that was embedded in in my family household. And how did that evolve? So you know you had some side. Hustles like young entrepreneurs. When did you get serious about making money in high school I moved to southern California. You wait so long well until then I thought I was making big bucks you know and then I moved to California at prices were what they were. We thought we were paying astronomical rent in Baltimore and then we moved to Orange County of all places. Westminster I LOUIS. I gone and You know the rent like this has got to be a huge five bedroom. Ten Thousand Square Foot House and it was a two bedroom. One and a half bath apartment. Brookhurst In Westminster so I learned then that Kedah the money. I thought it was making a thousand bucks. A week may be as a freshman. I. It's not a lot of money so In my household was if you made money and could contribute you did so i. As a very young man made my portion of the rent my portion of all the utilities this static Cetera. So when I have little leftover when all into mijas buying a crapload of books and Every seminar I could go to anybody I can meet coming into town so I was left with very little money and I got very that come from it so rare that you know an entrepreneurial high schooler you know is not putting his money into flipping cars or mirroring to make money. You actually went the longer play into self development. I I got that from my dad as well Being a medical doctor. I The fondest memory that I had him from when he would travel was be to these medical conferences Of and he told me what he learned there will be very inquisitive. Who Did you meet air? What do they talk about? Why do they talk about that etc? Everything I'm sure. A young child will ask their parents but he would tell me things that I later realized that hates more that what he learned rather than what those people were saying is. There's a hundred people that spoke. But he took away five feet five or six key things from that And that really really helped. His practice helped his development as a medical doctor. So I had that discipline to knowing a pass just school in the books that schools told you to read you have to do self development so I was very early. Reader really helped me Reset my mind. You know not necessarily economic downturns but you know life so I picked up a book and was back to normal thinking whole new fresh perspective. Were there any books that you read in high school? That changed your life. Can they still read today? I would still say back in. High School was more soft development. A sense of discipline or whatnot. So I WANNA say one book stuck out of but Jim Rome with somebody that I started to pick up on a way back in. I think it was towards the end of my freshman year and He is somebody that I still read today. Still Watch his listen to his audio. Read his books. Every time I get a chance and He had a very profound impact. As far as what direction I started to develop myself into a coming from Baltimore to Orange County I lived in West Baltimore so Completely different side of town if you will A different side of the railroad tracks. I didn't speak the way that everyone around me spoke in Orange County. I didn't walk talk and act like the people that did there so Somebody that put things into perspective where I said. Hey I want to speak like the one percent not like ninety nine so that became a very big staple of how I spoke to people In my freshman year and got into a equity position in a very very later successful of retail franchise so Those little tweaks that I did were because of I think Jim. Rohn teachings awesome and then so you started in high school. When did you start your first real equity position by your senior year? I was already a equity partner. Sophomore Year I. It was my first job. Look for I applied for job. Got A job at a place in Westminster abroad disc year. They sold these distinct that you could fit ten discs into indestructible. So you the crap out of them and compete time At the end of the month the guy had closed up shop when I showed up for my paychecks. O.'s very distraught and this gentleman approaches me and says hey you know. Let me help you He did his best called the family member. He knew that was an attorney long shirts. He wanted to help me at a store. I have for my cell phone kiosk in Whittier. I went to that store He told me it. Whatever you make here. The way works is no already tonight. You just get X. amount of the gross earnings. Though you did so I thought okay if I sell three thousand I'm GonNa take home six hundred dollars for the day that comes out to whatever the hour the etc and I did. I think forty eight hundred dollars a day Just by selling the cellphone assessories to just a mall employee because mom was very dead mall. And there's no traffic but I said there's three hundred employees within a quarter mile radius of where I am so fast forward to about six to seven weeks and I realize I'm building disguises business. I'm refurbishing the kiosks and putting a nicer stuff. I'm calling vendors doing stuff that I learned from from my self development is stuff that business owner does And when you are good at something you should get paid for it. So that's what I told them. Hey you're gonNA open this new location Lakewood Mall. I'd love to work there but with this that it's got to have something in for me other than just a paycheck so I offered to make equity partner. I don't eat any money. I'll take with business. Nets it's like nine months to become positive but we went on a snowball effect. I think we from two thousand and three two thousand six. We went over almost nine locations throughout California. He started with eleven when I joined him. So I it was a blessing to be in that right place at the right time you know didn't begin to well. We're getting the first job but that job led to this shop on. That job led to a very very very often wonder price. Yeah and I always say that you know there's no overnight success as even young ones. They start early and they learned their lessons. A Don't quit and you know lot of people. Just don't see it through from the first venture where you know you may not have turned out the way he thought but then even the second measure nine months into it till you're even net positive you made the investment in yourself hunting education follow. You know big thing that's going to go on today is that education has been accelerated now into format People are questioning. There already. Were before this happened. Questioning the value of college In the return on investment for that type of education. I'm a firm believer in education. You and I both subscribed to personal development and learning every single day But how did educate them. Your Dad was a doctor here. You were making a ton of money in high school Was there any aspirations of going to college or any need or or any guilt desi? Some Gill You know both from what I had always envisioned growing up that I would do my high school do my four years college this and that and what I wanted to do I would have the option to do. I my culture and my upbringing and was very very ingrained that hate going to college and getting a degree. Something you have to do it up brings you. Class brings character decided that I got in high school and started to do well. Etcetera learned that. Hey I'm learning more at my job and career in my business than I am at school. You only thing that I didn't learn you know the other way round was when I played football that learning sportsmanship the static CETERA. But I decided that it was better for me to stay in my business at that time and later. Start to visit my options for college. Because it's always going to be there for me whereas that business I saw that. Hey this is kinda looking like what it looked like X. amount of years ago. I WANNA stay in this industry long enough to write out the wave of an and see what the next innovation may be. That can be a party to so for me. Became a a guilt thing where you know to this day and talk to my dad. He'll come to the office or dinner and he'll say all that's nice you know but it had you just done a little stint. Ucla or something. That would have been a little better so Outside DABID. Dcla teach there. Sometimes you're better off making the real quickly as you know. We ventured to the buck. What other businesses have you ventured into as you move forward short so the book will highlight a few of those businesses Or those industries rather In which I'm telling them not to invest in those specific verticals. You know like don't invest in real definitely investment real estate. Just don't go out and buy ten single family homes and you know thank you hit the lottery or something so one of the industries that we got into recently. It's very exciting. Fresno in quick service restaurants Y Y QSR as we call it here and right now. The Primary Brown is Jack in the box for US. An Oregon but seventeen franchise locations there with our operating partner and that was for for me personally something that. I followed going back. Almost twelve thirteen years now I followed a group that I befriended owned a whole bunch of jack-in-the-box Taco bells and other franchises here in the bay area and elsewhere and they were immensely successful because they had this cash flow. That just seemed like they had to do anything and it was there. didn't work that way got deeper into it over the last ten thirteen years and found out. It's not easy but it is a good stable cash flow asset that we want to be involved with so over the last three years we've worked with institutional investors investors. Both we've worked with in the past one of the projects and we've gone real heavy with this. So our goal for twenty twenty one leading up to the end of the fourth order is going to be to be at least sixty locations from the seventeen right. Now they're just saying you wrote this book like I said ten things not to invest in what you know what's going on today And you have launched the book yet but what you feeling about. Businesses that have employees or read As far as in the current crisis right now on Oh this long term employees in overhead investment. It's me your your payroll is the number. One thing I noticed is that went out after cove it Sa- I notices. We received from vendors. Say Hey we're a little bit more time because we deal with investors investments abroad. We felt the crunch coming little bit sooner than that. So we were very lucky that our payroll was fairly reasonable dealing with a lot of outsourcing that we do so we we whether stone but other businesses right. Now I one of the things I wrote in the book not to invest in is to invest in the restaurant industry. But don't go often start a mom-and-pop shop franchise in your own branding and your own thing. I'm because you'RE GONNA try to reinvent reinvent the wheel and it's just not worth the money stop were at the time. So we're seeing a lot of those businesses right now just here in town in the bay area closing up shop. Just saying hey. We won't be back. I'm sorry you know it just took it out of it. Takes one bad quarter to really put a business out completely? Their cash reserves have gone to savings are gone and when most of those businesses in a in a fairly decent economy could have access to home equity in their property and their business etc. They can't do that now. that equities not really they're accessible banks lining up and saying we got this plethora of cash for you to borrow from the banks are feeling the crunch do so. That's what happened to me in two thousand eight right uber. Like how the heck do you lose that much? Money is because I couldn't borrow against what I own yet in my mind when I was spending you know lawsuits and other ego based off. I forty million dollars that I could access anytime I wanted. I just walked into my private bank and you should have seen my face when I walked in and they said I. I know I'm like what do I got equity that we don't care we don't want anybody borrow let alone you those properties. Rb is worth as much the next five years and then you start missing. A couple of payments All right getting to the biggest lesson right book ten things not to invest in. You obviously have learned an accelerated amount of lessons through your career. You know you're humble enough to know you're just on the journey of success. You're enjoying you have the the key component or ingredient of successful people. That's you have a needs. You moved here To be what you must be. You must be what you can be and I could see that in the first minute I talked to you. Give us your number one lesson From your book that you think you would love people to take away from his. If you're Jim Rohn I would say never stopped growing That that one growth factor a call it Choices that you have an option a choice everyday to learn something you meant. Apply that knowledge out or not. Has that for me has differentiated me between my competitors that seen that have entered the industry the same industry at same time same resources but they've made the choice to say. This is a business plan. And we'RE GONNA run into the ground They'd they failed to see other competitors like myself come into the market come into the market better resources sometimes with more updated. Knowledge and more niche knowledge That that's really what's led us to be a really good value at partners where we see value where others don't so look maybe one hundred deals before we pick one So that's also for us a choice but we've only gotten to that choice Ability to make that choice by never stopped growing We're always learning. Were with we call ourselves students before we say anything else so. It's a constant learning process. You're awesome will you live by the golden rule that I learned from one of my mentors is your made by the people and opportunities that you say no to even wrote a book about the ten things not to invest in Learning how to say no is such a valuable skill and does take acquired knowledge as well so I appreciate you helping people along with one of those skills and I will say yes to you anytime my friend. You are an amazing nor I love. Your story can't wait to read your book check it out. It is the ten things not to invest in by Rick. Mercer thinks for joining me here with Dave Meltzer on the playbook by hope you enjoyed this week's episode of the playbook as much as me on a personal note.

Timing old strategy was Play turned out to be the right one so it was amazing. Also get the win with my partner on the truck Connect company from quebec. it's it's very good exposure for them so it's a good way to thank them for everything they easy to say that. If you're a new guy like yourself to go to a place so big so fast. So high banked like talladega to be intimidated by the size of the thing. It's the biggest oval that nascar runs on two point six miles. The banking is is unreal. The speeds are unreal. Did you feel intimidated at all when you said. Wow this this is a gulpur gulpur.

And i nothing to lose The last three weeks before that were lived. We we struggle with this so all week. I was focusing on the kind data and just trying to study as much as i could. I spend all week studying videos fast. The past couple of years of the truck series being there the cup series watching what the good guys do to be up front and stay up front right. And i still like it. Paid off all that are works. It's amazing because when i got there in the morning. I'd never seen that place and i'm like inside the racetrack and i can barely see the corners because it's all being that's right so big. You can barely see the all racetrack. I was like. Oh my god this is used. It's gonna be fun. I just When i start at fifteen. So i was like i'm gonna take it easy. I'm gonna stay on the bottom the first days of my tundra and just My crew chief told me we gotta be there.

That's open the door for me. I went on his inside. And ben role behind me gave me a heck of a push but both my rear wheel were off the ground. I was just trying to hold onto. That was sideways despair. Cold and i was like there's no way i'm lifting now for the last lap and i'm going for it go. Yeah good for you good for you. Yeah you gotta be courageous in a place like that but that was perfect the way you described it. Now you talk about your crew chief in mike hillman junior. You may not know this. But there is a niagara connection to the hillman family because mike hillman senior Juniors dad obviously known as goat certainly was big and dirt modified circles were located here in southern ontario niagara western new york. You know down through. Pennsylvania had a lot of success in dirt modifies before he got down to nascar and certainly helped steer a lot of careers and a lot of success down there. So there's that deep seeded canadian style connection you know because of hillman. Seniors work with dirt modified and now junior helping you. I just kinda love that connection cool and you did an amazing job this week and it was a team work. A good team work a good example of A strategy working out you. We had a different strategy than most. We ended up with the wind. We are nothing to lose. We didn't have to worry about stage points and we were there to just put ourself in position of winning at the end of the race. And that's what we did. And i mean i'm super happy to fall my team. 'cause i think it's been awhile since mike won the ratio so and my old team is just gonna give them confidence and a good boost for the last four races of the season. Absolutely quebec's raphael lazard drives. The number four cannot toyota tundra. For kyle busch motorsports on the nascar truck series. He won at talladega. What a kyle cd. You afterwards thanked me for all the hard work i put in and he told me it was an amazing win. They had a celebratory bonfire for you. Didn't they yeah. This mike shulman the out pretty a pretty big yard so we we. There was a fire outside. And i was with all my team. And we're celebrating. I wish my family was there with me. And all my partners and investor back in kobe. But hopefully when this They'll come back to normal. We can all celebrate that when you absolutely absolutely. That's one of the things that you and i talked about in. Our last interview is the fact that this pandemic has has forced to you know to to be separated from your family and close to your family in the sacrifices that your mum and dad have made their support of your racing career it. Oh it's got to be tough. I mean you've moved down there but because of the border not seeing your family that that's probably is that. Been the toughest adjustment for you in whole thing re raphael that that your family is so far away and you can't connect other than Skype or electronic wise. You know yes. I feel like i'm loving it. I'm doing and that's what i dream about. Gorging here and racing. Usually my parents would come through. Every race is almost. If it doesn't go go well To one race my my parents are there to support me. And they're like all right full on the the future and never looked at the past. Just focus on what's ahead. I was always talking with them on the phone. But it's not like they're here in person real it's a. It was a bit weird. My sisters are back home and all my family. And i miss them for sure. But we're going to see them at the end of the season. Hopefully just i'm just gonna keep on working hard to make them proud. Raphael lazard online radio after his win at talladega. There's always the philosophy Rafe about getting that first win. You know it takes the pressure off. Because that's what you're shooting for is to grab that first career win any big series like the nascar truck series. Does it. Don't put more pressure on you now because after you get one you want to get another one and now everyone expects you to get another one so the pressure is off in one area but it can mean more pressure in another of you understand what i mean right. Yeah yeah for sure does but it just fills great through throughout my first career win. I can check my list of thing i wanted to do. That's the one thing i wanted to do again. Focus on the the next one. We're going to keep on working hard. I feel like it's gonna me for the future. If we can have a good rest of the season. I think is going to help me for absolute close a deal for two thousand and twenty on awfully but it just it. Just good for for everyone my family. We've been doing alert sacrifice and everyone that's helping me. They all excited about it good. I was happy to be able to show them that. I i'm working hard. And i finally got to a win so it's really cool. It is extremely cool. What do you do away from all of that. I mean if that's all you did it might be. It might be a little bit You know how as. I say cocooning you into that. Do you do anything at all to get away from the sport. Get away from a truck just to to have some fun. What would that be when you find the time. I was Usually when i was in quebec i would always go play hockey for fun right my friends and you spent hockey. So i would play Usually i do snowmobile and all that stuff right here. We don't have that right now. i'm just Pretty much all in my all focused in racing and For sure spent time with my girlfriend won the I have free time. That's for sure absolutely. We're kind of trying to relax and think about some other stuff but I live very close to the lake. Norman in mooresville. Look yup yup. Buddy buddies got a So i've been surfing a little bit so that good will and that that makes you think about something else sometime so it's fun. Good listen raphael. You deserve everything you get in you work so hard for it. Everybody was thrilled to pieces to see you. Get that first. Win at talladega the team as well in kyle busch and and and mike hillman's junior. We know that connection there so listen. Congratulations once again. Here's to another one before the season is over. And we look forward to some great things for you A little further down the line. Thank you so much. Messier kumana me. I'm bolsheviks quebec teen sensation. Raphael assad part to a storm nascar truck series win at talladega on the best of race. Line radio we have since learned. Lazard will not return to drive them before truck for kyle busch but has signed on a deal do at least twelve truck races for gm as racing won the twenty twenty championship with sheldon creed will start hopes to find more sponsorship to make this a full-time effort next season. Okay brad time for another pit. Stop and still ahead. A canadian motor speedway update with his arm. Oh hamad and at one. Technical director ross brawn. This is the best brace line on the race. Line radio network. Hi this is alyssa junior. Were coming right back on baseline radio coast to coast. This is the best of race line of the race. Line radio network. I'm rick thomas. The segment brought to you by subaru. Maintaining radio silence really the last ten years or so. Those behind the canadian motor speedway development in fort erie just across. The peace bridge from buffalo have been hung up in banking bureaucracy. Best way to describe it. But they every worked their finances and timeline for restructuring. The project that includes that three quarter mile richmond oval at high grade road course and seating for sixty five thousand the first racing complex of its kind in canada now worth well in excess of seven hundred million dollars. So let's get that badly needed update with the executive director of the project. Czar mohammed exclusively on the best race. Line radio so that was really the the reason why we sort of went off the radar for a while because a lot of these discussions where we're sensitive in nature. You know one of the bigger questions that everybody always seemed to have was. Have these guys taken down the land. And they haven't even taken down the land and all of those core lands that we require to develop what we're going to develop and what we're approved for. We took down. And any of those sensitive lands like oem be mandated lands and purchases. You know the the o. M. b. has forced us to buy those properties and we are committed to buying those properties. We've never wavered from any of that you know. We've kept relationships with the landowner's property owners and they're very supportive of the project. They want to see it happen. And that's really great. The three things you know land control finances and you know this. Sunset clause challenge was really know the area that caused a lot of these delays from from us getting back onto the site and starting work again. The nation is our to to be very blunt with you is that you never had the money in place in the first place and you've just explained that you have is there. A new investor is coming from different part of the world. And how confident are you that the funds will finally arrive. So you guys can get back rolling on this thing about a year and a half ago We started our discussions with an international investor. Not from the middle east I'll just say that okay But very very well versed in the in the motor sports industry from an investment perspective. Can you tell us how are sorry to interrupt you. Can you tell us who this is or is that is that confidential. Yeah i think we're going to keep that confidential for now. I think that we're position now. Where our entire funding infrastructure is is ready and that we will now be able to execute so as you're fairly confident that you can get the funding and now that you want to. In those roadblocks because it was coming from the middle east have been removed and i mean. That's the one thing that the fans want to know about it not to be repetitive. But you're fairly confident that That wants the. The sunset clause is extended a year end. It appears that that's going to be the case which is good. There won't be any more roadblocks in terms of getting the funds in eric. Our confidence really stems from the fact that we've put in over thirty five million dollars to date since we started staggering staggering. We we we are not walking away from that right. I think you know again The fact that the public now knows that you know what are the lands that are rightly owned by the project and give us the ability to develop what we're going to develop that also speaks to our confidence in moving forward. And you know. Jeff gordon is just gonna ask you since day one and he stands to hundred percent with us. Good is he's. He's supported us in terms of a lot of the business. Decisions that the design component. He's been you know leading that we've really maintained all of those relationships all of the four university or the educational partners that we have are standing firm with us and we've done work with all of them were all tied up officially with all of them And we continue to just have everything sort of in a holding pattern until we were able to at least deal with these challenges. So now moving forward. We've got our team. Everybody is getting in the confidence mode that that we're going to move ahead and we've we've actually done some work to affect the fact that you know we have a plan over the next two and a half years to bring in the first phase of the development and during that time obviously we had a lot of time to think about. What is that motorsport product that we're going to To introduce here and still very much very much about the oval. It's very much about an f. I. a. f. i m road course you know. There are other components that we're introducing this well to supplement the research and development so nothing has changed. We are on track. You know we're really looking forward to starting again. And you know. It's in our best interests eric at the end of the day. Why would we drop that kind of money just to walk away from over thirty million exactly. That doesn't make it doesn't make sense at all. Plan is still to build a three quarter mile. Richmond like oval and the road course component wasn't off the table but it is sort of faded a little bit into the background. But you're telling me now that if it's faa f im which motorcycles that maybe the road course component is going to be just as important as the oval component. When i be accurate in that absolutely this is part of what the fans want. It's part of you know sort of the excitement of those kinds of products. That don't really have a presence. In this country on that global level we're endeavouring to to facilitate attract that that. Can that can offer that kind of product to to this massive fan base. You know in southern ontario in in in western new york doesn't really have something of that nature. When do you think fans are going to see heavy machinery back on that site at bowen road in fort erie that was going to say. Hey look it's rolling again is Do you have any kind of a time like that on your radar right now. The first thing that we're going to undertake after the sunset clause issue is dealt with is the submission of detailed site. Plan the total amount of work required for that kind of delivery. We've done about say fifty percents of of a lot of the work in terms of the planning on the land. Then that has to translate into submission to the town. The town will ensure that what we have you know stated on that site plan it in line with the zoning bylaw on the allowable uses once that is done you know our teams then will submit the detailed construction drawings for us to be able to apply for permits. Okay the first permit is going to be related to site. Alteration permit moving the dirt around essentially on the site. So that's the point where you'll see you know the the big heavy equipment back on onto our our lands and executing that now from a time perspective we want to address all of those things within this one year extension that i've requested ten absolutely possible given the fact that you know we we have done a lot of the background work so one year is really that that plan to estimate. I hope to deliver before that. Okay and we've absolutely got a great team that has already thought about how we're going to execute your answer. A long answer to short question is you know about a year Where equipment will start to come back onto the site. It's not to execute the actual construction but it certainly to enter the beginning beginning of construction which alteration there is anybody out there listening to all of this. That doesn't want this project hit. It is just that at at times. It's hard to believe that it takes so darn long like a full decade just to move it to this point but you have explained it very very. Well we're in lockstep with you. Every step of the way we have been from the beginning on the race line radio network and thank you for the update. Thanks very much eric. I mean we started off as fans. We still are motorsport. Fans that really want to see this thing Done as quickly as possible. And we understand the frustrations you know at the same time you know we. We're we're inundated with iraq chrissy and in a process that times is unpredictable. Of course we're here and we're not going anywhere. We're going to get this thing done for sure for everybody and and you know again with the You know the the hope that You know we can trim down as much of that loss time as possible so we can start to see some racing again. They're very latest. On the canadian motor speedway development with his arm ohammad on the best over a slide radio the slow moving project yup still alive and you get it all right here exclusively on race line radio. Let's do another pit. Stop right here brad. But when we get back to green formula one tech director ross brawn. This is the best of race line presented by the subaru. Vr ed sports coupe. For more info the subaru dot ca slash. Vr's ab it. This is the race line radio network. Steve kinser you're listening to race line. Radio welcome back eric. Thomas the master race line on the line where neo network during a visit to the two thousand nine hundred canadian international auto show as mclaren was inducted into the canadian. Motorsport hall of fame along with yours truly very few valuable minutes with the director of motor sport and the technical director for the formula one world driving championship. It's ross brawn and the best of race. Line radio i have been an enormous fan of yours in your endeavors and your accomplishments with schumacher and others. And it's a distinct pleasure to be sitting across from you. And i get to call you. Ross everyone else does my mood racing career starters and apprentice and i've never stood on formality. The on that. I think is helping my career so much more comfortable with it. So we'll tell you it's it's a special treat to be able to spend some time with you because normally when you come to candidates montreal for the grand prix. You don't often get to the toronto win. This is kind of like indycar. Countries stockcar country even dirt track racing. I heard you talking with johnny ruth. Earlier it's nice to get you at the at this end of the country is as it were francois and his team at montreal. Encourage me to come up and is clear that huge enthusiasm and in canada for motor sport. Reel pleasures would be f ones ross brawn on on race line radio. I don't know how many people have actually asked you this question. You come from the competition side to the administration side. How are you enjoying the gig. Not the same as being in a team. But i i reached the point where i didn't want to continue to be in a team. It's a twenty four seven intensely stressful rewarding intensity stressful occupation and Got into my sixties. And i decided that. I was going to take a step back and i always felt that there was an opportunity in foam. Want to have some an organization that would support the development of the spot with bernie and ben. He's done a fantastic job on really not criticize mental at all but he never had that mindset for him that was left to the teams to develop sport and i think having a spotless developed by the teams can have some weaknesses so this been offered this opportunity once before. It didn't happen when this came up. And i spoke to the people that the media it became clear it was a real ambition of this to do what i'm doing. And that's what drew me back into the sport but in a different role. It's still pretty busy. But i'm not awake at night worrying about crash test so some new development. That hasn't worked so i guess it's accurate to say. It's maybe a little less stressful this gig than the old gig. It is also. I can organize myself differently than my work. Ratio is a little different with the team. You're on twenty four. Seven hundred recite is no. We've all been the last one i enjoy. That's why thrived on. Is it simplistic enough or maybe inaccurate to say because most people would say well. He's like a hockey player. A football player a soccer player. He's played the game. He knows all the pratfalls. You can't be s the guy if he comes on the administration side technical director and the director of motor sport. No one's gonna pull any fast ones on you because you've been on that other side. Does it make the job easier or is it too simplistic to say that us. No comment i think What i've seen on what are going to help with is out to very senior colleagues traced karen show brackets. Who knew very little about for more. And i saw people trying to pull the wool over there. I mean they're very smart people. But i saw happening and i was able to quietly advising on and they relied on my experience him from lawn to who would be straight with them who perhaps mangle or what was going on. So i think you're right in your assertions people don't try it on short term decisions are easily debated what's more difficult. Debate is the impact of a long-term so if we look at something like a cost cap. I'm convinced that will level the playing field other people less-convinced but i'm i'm convinced. Yeah competent team not mercedes if you have their budget. They won't go as fast but they'll still be doing a fantastic job within the budget Permitted and they could. Well still be the best team. But i think how soft move they are but i think that will bring a more competitive on now. The people are more skeptical. I we'll see but those areas are more complex because you're not simply repeating experience. You're and you're predicting the way things will be. You're going to not necessarily have a majority or unanimous decision by the teams to make adjustments in other words those gray areas of the rule book were very clever people in the sport and i'll mention roger penske for one and there's others who don't necessarily break the rules. They simply take advantage of what the rules do. Not say if you need to change it. You don't need unanimous approval from the teams to make those adjustments. And i think that's probably at the root of why this cap and the changes are coming in twenty twenty one to gap to bridge. That gap is going to work. Because you're able to make those mid season adjustments even if a few teams don't like it. Yeah i think that's a very good point what we did when we set off on this adventure to look at all the aspects affected. The dynamics within fomo on on one of them was that beyond a certain time point about halfway through the previous season. You couldn't change the rules that unanimous agreement today that menu is stuck so if somebody came up with a concept or an interpretation that was really outside the regulations but to the to the letter of the law was correct. Then you stuck with it for eighteen months now. I am a hypocritic obviously been practicing that for many years but you take a step back and you say do. The fans really get turned on. Because somebody's found a loophole older. They get turned on because his great competition going on. I don't think they get. It's a fascination if somebody's found loophole but when that loophole enables a team just dominate and disappear. I think that's great for the sport. If as a loophole because is a calmer in wrong place. In the regulations that doesn't make any sense and therefore change in the governance. And we have we call the majority and the super majority so majority is where we We have good notice on. One's a supermajority is when we can change them anytime so as long as we convince eighty percent of the teams. This is something that we should be different. We can change things tomorrow. And i think said really critical change in the complexion for more the fact that unfortunately the the corona virus problem in china is going to force. Let's say a postponement of that race but rescheduling it. You haven't got a lot of wiggle room on the schedule with you. Know vietnam being there and he does not allow room there. But if you can reschedule it i know you will. Yes and china's become a very enthusiastic. We turn the tide in china. I think a few years ago and we've done a lot of promotional work fan festivals etc. And it's a very strongly growing market for us so that we can't we can't put race on but we'll look at the end of the stuff and i'm gonna solution but we looking to say. We competed in late in the season. Happy with the direction. The formula one world driving championship is going. You think you're headed in the right direction. Yes you get frustrated. I wish we could have done some of the things we've now managed to achieve little bit adia but you have to respect the views of of the teams. They make a huge investment in one. It's not a total autocracy. So we're so yeah. I'm pretty happy where we are an honor to be sitting across from you. Thank you so much for the time and come back and see us in this neck of the woods here. Next time you can buy great. Thank you very much. Well of course as it turns out the covid.

This and we have a sports car enthusiasts and and racing hobbyist surround just about everywhere right up and down you know our eleven station race line radio network. What was the motivation to to build this new track about. What a half an hour. North of Calgary ron carstairs. Well as you said. I mean there's a lot of enthusiasm and racing enthusiasts frankly across alberta but you don't really calgary red deer and edmonton markets you know with the closure of ray city and cowdery right. There was a was a market demand created. And so really that. That was the motivation that you know. We wanna give folks a world class facility where they can enjoy the sport dominant young rocky mountain motorsports in calgary rocky mountain motorsports park. It's a new sixteen. Turn three point five kilometer road course. You're carstairs just. North of calgary ray city was pretty close to the city of not in the city. But this isn't that far away with as you say it's just a short drive in in. It's a world class facilities isn't it. He asked it as you said It's only about twenty five minutes. North of calgary international airport. It's within forty five to fifty minutes reach for just about anyone. In calgary i'm in the southeast and i can get there and fifty minutes so race. City of course had a drag strip and there was an oval component to it. I don't know whether that's on your radar would it be Actually i it is not and in fact unfortunate but the county has has essentially Disallowed anything to do with a drag strip annoys. Basically yeah now the noise and other perceptions that go with the with the drafts but the good thing about it is though in a lot of ways. This track is going to keep people who might be tempted to run their high performance. Automobiles on the street. There is a place for them to do it and do it safely. That's exactly right. This is a purpose built facility just for those individuals that have that need to get a little speed once in a while. I was looking down the specs of this thing and one thing really jumped out. Tilk gmbh and company at of germany might not mean a lot to a lot of people listening to this. But these guys designed the formula one circuit of the circuit of the americas in austin texas. And the as marina circuit in abu dhabi. How did you get lined up with these guys. Because these are world class race track designers spam. Yeah no question about that Turkeys designed probably fifty percent of the tracks no meaningful tracks around the world You know they provide us a reasonable quote. We need to investigate. A number of other companies took on that. We settled on very time consuming. Where are we on the timeline of this thing dominic. So i'll tell you we're actually had a scheduled relative constructions get scheduled which you don't hear very often no you don several weeks ahead of this point okay And so we've moved about eight hundred and fifty thousand cubes of Dirt while at a massive amount of dirtier is detractors. Now pretty close to final grade o'reilly another week to ten days and it will be there And at that point in time we can turn The construction over to our other contractor volker seven that will be doing natural track Build itself so the gravel the asphalt curbs yep and get an and the barriers around away already. Those kind of things are all sort of in process right now. What what is the time line. When is the projected opening this thing. I know it's tough to pin. You know it is a little bit because we get You know a west belt in calgary and and that could slow us down a little bit But our target is to have a soft opening in august we'll have to test our sounded Monitoring and compliance phone inside of gordon. Then hopefully ready to sort of have Full opening by Early september purrs perfect perfect. Is there a website or somewhere that folks can go of the want to look at the progress and look at the specs on this thing and you know maybe get Familiarized and where they need to go once it's done and once they want to book some track time sure So our website is rocky motor-sports sports dot com and We haven't got it Sort of an operational basis still serving in the capital capital phase raise capital spend So there's no sort of booking system there yet but We'll turn our attention to that In the next Month to well this is. This is perfect because we are show has been around now for thirty years and we're always on the lookout whenever a race track facility via the hobby level or the professional level. Whatever it is. It's important to keep track of this stuff and this is great because this is a very huge story in terms of the development of brand new facilities and we always lament that. There aren't enough being built. But it's expensive but it's going to be pay for itself somewhere down the line and congratulations on this dominant. Because i think this is something that is that is very very badly needed right up and down the network and congrats on this thing will stay in touch with you on this end. Once it's open we'll do another one and gets The opinion of some of the drivers out there. Because this sounds like a terrific project and we do thank you for the time thanks.

Two years ago the race was cancelled a year ago. And i'm still waiting for a refund at this point. We don't see any money back will never attend this race again as today.

Stay with us. This is the race line radio network. This is allen junior to covid right back on race line radio canada's national radio motorsport authority twenty nine th season on the air we are the race line. Radio network closed three years ago. August at pocono pennsylvania. Wealth on cheerios. Robert wickens survived very violent and scary crash. Just as his indycar career was starting to burst forth. That crash inflicted severe spinal injuries that basically left robbie paralyzed from the waist down but relentless physio and brave determination has wiccans mobile enough to test a special bryan her to mci challenge hyundai bolster sports car at mid ohio equipped with hand controls for michael johnson. A race winning paraplegic. What an incredible story this has been. That's far from over so via a virtual media zoom. Call a few minutes. Update with robert wickens on race line radio. Well robin finally back into a race car after such a long period of time. We've been following your your rehab pretty much every step of the way. Just give us your overall feeling on Finally getting suited up and strapped in again. I mean i feel. There was a lot of emotions. I think after once i was able to put my advisor down. Get back on a racetrack again. The whole week upolu leading to this it was you know wasn't so much nerves. His love excitement anticipation for this then. Once i put a suit on again and started putting in the european nelga the helmet it any it all went out the window and it was just like business as usual the good once. I got back on track of slightly different story you know. Obviously the hand controls. That michael johnson uses the unable lassiter's brand new for me so learning that a wet track in a wasn't without his difficulties but we took a step by step in at slowly. Chipped away at at getting quicker quicker and then of course. The hand controls the center of all of this robert wickens with sunray sign. Radio attract day. Admit ohio Doing some equipment tests just to just to get a shakedown. Those hand controls. I mean you trained as a race car driver to use your is your hands and your feet and suddenly you've got to do everything through your hands and your eyes. That's got to be a massive adjustment. Yeah i think that. That's the hard thing with accessibility is you know. There's there's no textbook on it. You know the gas is on the right and the brakes on the left wing every carlson existence With this there's been a lot of people in the past that it has raised with disabilities. Billy mongering of alex zanardi. Us michael johnson. Here the pilot series and You know they're all have different systems in their very successful at what they're doing it's Michael system here is. There's a ring on the front of the steering wheel that you push for for throttle and then there's another ring on the backside of stern that you pull in for break Which i think is a great system. Having everything within fingers reach on the steering wheel is been pretty good so far yeah But yeah like you said it's a really steep learning curve but there's been a lot of Mental focus. I guess goes into trying to program in preplanned. What i'm doing with my hands before it gets the next corner now and is slowly starting to take shape having to think less and less about robert wickens on race. Fine radio well. Let me ask you this now. Back at Your your indycar team arrow mclaren patio award has had a pretty darn good outing. The last little while in a win and anna podium finally got his victory. You've got to have some thoughts on padro. I mean with a long time coming. I think he's had but three maybe four second places so far in his career. He's been so close so many times. When i see A lot of myself at him in terms of he's doing so many things right in its in in indycar especially in any professional form of motorsport. You have two little things well in. It's the things that go unnoticed to to the visual i unite like you're in lobster out laps there stopping on the marks. The pitstops your attention. The dj best. What wins you racist level. It's never as as we say in their glaring. Sp camping The not so sexy stuff. Well which is basically those laps out lapsed those little parts of the game that can make the difference. Robber wiccans on race. Line radio. what what is the plan now. Moving forward. I mean as the certainly the the road is still very long. But what's what's on your immediate radar of. I can put it that way. I mean. I wish i could give you guys bit more insight. Been at the moment. There's there's no real prospects. It's just a great opportunity that that bryan herta hyundai were able to present me with this track day and night. I jumped on the opportunity. You know wanting to drive a race car for a long time now and The finally tick. That box is massive in my recovery in my journey back. Who knows what what can what the future will bring. But i don't wanna get too far ahead of myself. And i just wanted to take today for really what it is Would it be. I guess presumptuous of me to ask about the indy five hundred end other indy-car opportunities in the future. Because that's where you were when things were put on pause if you know what i mean i mean i was never really ruling at the lowest i mean i think the biggest thing for me is I just. I'm the hardest thing of my injury was i felt like i was just hitting the peak of my career and my abilities when the That's right now and we're creeping up on three years now since the accident and i feel like i'm i'm not utilizing those those prime years of my career And i would love nothing more than to get back on elite level and sure i mean selfishly i would love to get back to indycar to close that chapter of my life on my own terms. I think everyone can kind of relate. You know if for whatever reasons if something happens that you weren't really planning Sometimes it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I would love nothing more. Ideally you to to win indycar race. move on but I think right now. There's there's so much to figure out. I think at the early stages of my recovery. I really wanted to return car. I'm not saying. I don't now but understanding what goes into accessibility. I think making an indycar competitive with hand controls would be a massive undertaking Yeah one that may be with. The current indycar regulations wouldn't be entirely feasible. So you know but say never There's a lot of great teams out there. And i honestly think crazier things have happened in the past but for the for the time being i'm just gonna keep doing what i'm doing is focusing on my rehab and hopefully Finally in due time right opportunity will. Yeah that's the key part of it and not telling you something you know. Nobody know you've just gotta take this one one page at a time one step at a time as as as as as you want worded are however you wanna look at that thing. I want to circle back here. Our remaining few minutes and talk about the fact that you've got to do this all through hand controls and i mean in in in the car that you ran today i mean he. Johnson's got it. Set up the way he likes. Is there a certain amount of tune ability You know maybe. I'm getting too technical here but i wanna ask you about circle back to the hand control thing you know how do you how do you look at that. Is it something that has to be designed specifically for you or can you take a current hand control system and adjusted to the way you like. I'm still learning the system myself. I think there's definitely probably some tune ability. I know with the healthcare system. That michael johnson uses in the in the blosser. There's Like a hydraulic actuator. Hydraulic booster like brake. Booster right Attuning aspect to that. Or if i want the brake more sensitive or not sensitive that dopp. stephen simpson. Who is michael. Johnson's co-driver demet is. He does a great job of shaking down the car. So he was actually i in today and Set up the brakes with what he believes. Michael would've liked for me to try and you know. And then once the tracks started dry out a little bit he We were talking a little bit and we changed the brakes a little bit again once tranquil setting a bit group year stuff like that He's been a great asset. Today with was getting me up to speed along with michael himself. i've been bouncing a lot of ideas on questions awesome. It's been It's been a really good day. But i think in terms of customization I'm i'm new to the World but i believe the assistance entirely obligated. So i think You can't really do a whole lot of customization without kamala getting a new system. Set up a four. Don't just love brave people. There's one of the robert wickens. After his sports car hand controlled tested mid ohio bound and determined to get back into action as soon as he possibly can and there was absolutely nothing to stop him. Okay well let's get ready with that last pitstops and then back for the last lap we will be look at next week's guests plan and more.

Lost Tracks -The Storied History of Riverside International Raceway

"Yeah welcome to another episode of Tain Parlay Welcome to another episode of piddly and Parlay My name is host. Mike joke them a my pal. Frank Santer Santer. Oscar joins me as we do another lost tracks special episode This one on Riverside International Raceway. So the Frank. How're you doing tonight? And thanks for joining again. Oh man thanks for having me on. I mean this supplies you to do these you know. I think that there's so much Racing history out there that a young people just don't know so I'm Ed just it pleases me to You know just help kind of educate folks honestly. Yeah I agree. There's some some really cool stuff out there that that you know like riverside that That I never saw even on TV but still really cool to talk about riverside known a lot for a a handful of a new car races. A BUNCH OF NASCAR races. A bunch of 'em so races a Formula One race Iraq raised here so That's a quick little overview review. It's pretty cool looking track just outside of La a couple hours south of Laguna Seca and probably pretty close to Long Beach so Where do you WanNa Start Art? I mean honestly if if the The movie the wizard of Oz was about abandoned race tracks riverside would be the scarecrow. And why is that. Because because Dorothy said scarecrow. I think I'll miss you most of all because Riverside was Ju- genuinely likes hiked by a real driver's track near the drivers like the teams like the the series arrays. There liked it. They weren't a great metropolitan area. They put on a good show. It was very fan friendly. They were viewing angles. So it's I mean it's sad that has gone. They had a thirty two year history. The original owner was a guy named Ed polly. Oh Yeah I believe it was a some sort of a like Automobile testing facility kind of company started building the track and they ran out of money in that Ed Poly Ali and some of his backers took over the project and they opened the track in nineteen fifty seven now Edwin Edwards. More of a hands off owner he. The President Riverside raceway and director of operations was fella named Les Richter and less is He's a hall of fame. Football player played the Los Angeles. Rams you know well known in the La area but But a big race guy and even had even had a stint during his career as the director race operations for NASCAR. I mean this guy was was was well versed in in auto racing and and the perfect guy to run the facility and he he ran that facility until they changed ownership using years later but Melissa the layout of the track the The track was in this long course. Three point three miles nine turns and there were several different different configurations. That can make out of that. You know like some of your some of the the collaboration facilities you see today where they have you know multiple places they can shut off the track. They had several different Configurations they can use. They could run clockwise or they can run a counterclockwise They had a shorter course. They had a half Mile Oval within the facility. There so there were lots of different things they can do riverside and it just it. It had very long straightaways. Very tight turns particular back straightaway. Away was quite long and downhill and then at the end of Australia it was turned nine which was a one hundred eighty degree turn hairpin and it was It was fast and I mean you literally destroy. The brakes tried to flow slowdown for that thing. If you wanted to get your Max speed on the straightaway ended. It ended up being one of the most dangerous part of the of the courses. Well Now now we yeah. We've talked about In some of our other shows about tracks that were inherently dangerous In Riverside certainly had that reputation there were in the thirty two year History Riverside Twenty one fatalities including fatality valley in their very first race meeting in nineteen fifty seven a fellow named John Lawrence off the track in turn nine and through the the wall and then he died about two days later of head injuries. So and then over the years I mean we lost nearly lost eight forth there. Sixty five had a horrendous wreck were they thought he was dead at the scene. You know. NASCAR CHAMP JOE. weatherly lost his life. There Ross. Tomlin The only fatality every in an instant GDP race. Ace happened at Riverside. Ross and or skin miles ken miles. Who is there's renewed interest in ten miles because of the The new Ford versus Ferrari Murari film. You know we're Christian. Bale defy job of portraying. Can he also lost his life testing riverside in nineteen sixty six. which was you know shortly after the the main action of that film so the track was dangerous but it was a real driver's track and people enjoy the challenge? And you know events inch there. The NASCAR guys were there as early as you know the late fifties very close to the beginning of NASCAR NASCAR began in nineteen forty nine within. You know ten years Riverside was there west coast Home for for a you know all the way through nineteen eighty nine before they started racing racing s and noma in a right to the end of Riverside but they NASCAR would host two races out there. They had the what they call the Winston West early days. It was the West before you came on board but a lot of the the regular grand national. Or you know guys would run that one as well Just because they like the challenge track the going back to the lay out looking at the back straightaway in using my Not so good math skills. It looks like the back. Straightaway was just about at a mile long which was pretty intense for road. Course especially when you're going downhill into turn nine and I'm I'm just reading about. Aj foists brake failure. Are you have to wonder how many guys had brake failures at such a point when you're going one hundred six hundred seventy miles an hour down to one hundred and eighty degree turn. Now they did in the late after nineteen sixty seven after another fatality. It turned nine. They did reprofile turn. They put a little bit of a Dogleg Dogleg out there and they actually widened the turn to make it a you know a little safer but then but they still you know lost Rostov on their after After the reprofile deter so it was a bit of a dangerous area and but You know every tracks cut that That spot fought this just tough and it's difficult if you could master it you know you're You're doing very well so another interesting thing about riverside was because of its proximity to Los Angeles. It was often used for for movies and television and to film commercials. You know they feel tons of car commercials you know. You always see the car commercial with you. Know professional driver on a close course riverside was the place do that. And they're a bunch of motion pictures We're we're we're film there and a lot of times like any TV show where you need a car chase they dress up to the back straightaway. Look like a freeway and feel mccart chase there rather than in closed down streets downtown Los Angeles so it's was very much us and wanted us to when I was a little kid. You know one of the first movies as I really liked was the original Herbie the love bug and there are a bunch of the racing scenes at her in Herbie were filmed at riverside and they they even. They mentioned the track several times. Oh we're GONNA get the big raise coming up at Riverside so you know it's it's it's widely used in popular culture riverside is just based on his proximity to Los Angeles Schloss. Yeah I'm looking at the movie and TV Tier I of the original Herbie. The love bug is fantastic. And I'm pretty sure on that on. VHS chests for for many years ships TV show was there awesome TV show Knight Rider shot there. What else we have a Grand Prix? The movie was shot there in sixty six and a bunch of other stuff but yeah pretty pretty cool that it was used so often back. Stray was so long they could dress it up as a as a the highway for different. TV shows and movies and whatnot. Yeah there's another interesting Riverside story that that some folks may not know that. Do you realize sweet. The average was discovered and riverside. No I did not know that it's a fun story Now Riverside is known as the House. Dan Gurney built right because number one. Dan Gurney Gurney won a lot of races there but but Dan would owe US riverside a lot for testing his cars and whatnot. He was he was a regular fixture. There at Riverside Riverside in Riverside itself was used just in car testing a ton. I mean you're talking. Here's a track that because of number one the favorable weather And number two just the different configurations. This track was was booked almost every off weekend that they have from racing for testing. It was highly used. I mean there was always is a busy place but sweet savage was Young guy he was He he had done some automobile race but he was more of a motorcycle. Guy Really was a motorcycle order cycle. Racer he was actually part of the evil knievel stunt show he would warm up act for you can come out and do do some tricks on his motorcycle so he caught wind of the fact it. Dan was going to be there in Riverside. And you know sweet savage. He's a California guy. I didn't live far. He figured he'd just just show up at the track right so he so he he shows up. I guess security was pretty lax you just you know came on in. And he was traveling up and down the pit lane on his motorcycle popping wheelies and showing laying off. I guess trying to draw attention to himself and it worked because A fellow named Monty Roberts was A PR guy with Ford. You Know Kinda Kinda noticed him and he says wow man that guy number one. He's just a lot of natural charisma. Good Looking Guy You know brace sold when his wheelies here so he opened up a conversation with them and before you know when he was signed signed a contract as a Ford driver and a couple of weeks later. He's he's he's he's running Holman Moody's car in Nascar Down in Down in Martinsville so And you know and then from there you know Sweden worked with Dan Gurney already for a while as well as You know his career into in the USAK so Just interesting you know. Because everyone's there riverside sweet decided to show up got up self notice. So that's that's always a neat story. I've liked yes pretty cool. I did not find that in when I was doing my research here. But it looks like You're going to go back to the layout again because I'm curious to get your input here looking at the the the redesigned layout where they widened. Turn nine and I can. I can see that it kind of looks like an early predecessor to what is or was Sonoma's raceway or whatever they call it nowadays With the kind of wide turn nine kind of wind e you have tight. whiny section turned six. Seven and eight. Almost you know the turns two three reform five where it's kind of like the SS but not quite Any any thoughts there and my completely right or am I my way off base it does bear some similarity to Sonoma's for sure I mean the whole layout and you can see if you look at a map that shows you the old turn nine and the new nine where they added kind of a a little bit of a kink before the turn the wind the doubt but You know sonoma's has that that that hairpin at the end of the Strait and sometimes I just used some times. It's not if you're able to do a configuration where you kind of shorten that. I believe in the short one in the past NASCAR prefers to use the full hairpin there but yes. It's very similar in look to it very similar with the the amount of elevation changes. I mean the thing that you can't always tell dishonor track map the FBI amount of elevations change and again that Riverside had a lot of elevation. Change in the back straightaway was downhill all the way you know and have been and then around the turn it back up very similar to like The boot at Watkins Glen where Scott Downhill tight turn and then back up hill so again very very challenging turn for the drivers I love it. That sounds that sounds awesome was the elevation change similar to say EH. Maybe Laguna Seca and the corkscrew. You know where it's almost a hundred and fifty feet when when all said and done I don't think it is quite as extreme strain as Laguna corkscrew. I think that's the Eunice. corkscrew is quite a unique in that sense but but there there you know was quite a bit availability change at the At Riverside I would say it's kind of similar to Like a Bridgehampton which is another lost track but the the elevation Obeishi changes were similar to that or again. Like I said to walk. It's Glenn Awesome And jumping and looking specifically the USAK years and then which was in the late sixties in cart years which was in the early eighties. It looks like the USAK years they use the two point six mile layout and then the a car years they use the three point three mile layout so yes. They made a change. When the faster cars came back there but Any specific specific or interesting indycar anecdotes from the six riverside races. There were only six of my. You Know Dan Gurney won the first two to I forget who won the third. The three cart-races Rick mears Ruled I two and then ray rail won the last indycar race at Ed Riverside but interestingly enough you know Mir's has a reputation as a oval specialist but what a lot of folks don't realize realized the early part of of of risk rear. He was one of the best on road courses. He really was and after he had the that horrible accident in San Aer up in Canada where he nearly lost both his feet it. It made the the road courses a bit more difficult for him. You know he kind of excelled a little more on the ovals but In in the enrich early days he was he was a beast on road courses. You know he not only WANNA riverside wiped up field but a lot of people. Don't remember that they remember Rick as the Oval Meister the master of Indianapolis but early career and Rick came out of the SPCA. He's old. Oh Formula Vee guy you know he. He cut his teeth running road courses so You know to To kind of cornhole him it's being an oval specialist is. He's not doing real justice to his early career. But those are some fine wins for for Rick Riverside back in the early eighty one hundred eighty two. That was honestly. I did not really know that beforehand so look at that. Some Rick mears knowledge in a Riverside International raceway episode. So yeah as I mentioned mentions There's only six races. Dan Gurney one to work. Mir's one to Some Guy Mario Andretti won one. And then Bobby Rahal when the final one at the end of in nineteen eighty three also a formula one race that I think I've mentioned at the beginning of the nineteen sixty They they were trying to get a a grand prix in the United States. I think in in fifty eight or fifty nine. They held one in C- bring and then they they went to riverside for nineteen eighteen sixty stirling moss won that Grand Prix there. And and then after that walking's gland successfully bid to host the US Grand Prix and then it was held there from nineteen sixty if you want through nineteen eighty so but riverside did host. There was the the you know grumpy. United States in Nineteen Sixty Points Ping race for the championship so and speaking of championships. The the the racist they use that races that were held at the Riverside. Or all the season enders you know again. Due to the favorable weather in California those races were held in early December December first or second for the Usak races then for a long longtime the File race of the season. FOUR NASCAR was riverside with their championship deciding race. You know oh I mean believe it or not if if you think about Nascar today this day and age how it's so strong and oval series and how we try to get a really neutral track for the championship for format. Whatever you WANNA call it now of it? They used decided championship on a road. Course back in the day and then prior to nineteen eighty two or eighty three riverside was was sometimes the season opener for Nascar again. Due to the favourable weather there in February it would it would be before the Daytona five hundred wasn't until the eighties that they tone a five hundred together to two open. Open the year for Nascar so little little bits of Riverside history where it was you know not just it was not just another race on the calendar was it was a very important race on the calendar for these different series now again. We really haven't touched on sports cars a lot but the La Times Graham free was a sports car race. That was the signature event now. Sports cars were wildly popular in the in the seventies sports cars and canam racing. And this this stuff back then was it was more popular than stockcar racing or open-wheel racing. They they would have great races. There Riverside huge crowds Then later during the MCI years they they changed that to it. Endurance races a six hour but that was always there signature race lifetimes grump Frey and these sports car race. You have have guys like Andretti. In there you know you're talking the Ken Miles and the Carroll Shelby's and and all these Jackie you know all these guys is it You're used to see that Lamont's and whatnot and you know you guys Leica Jackie. Stewart Graham Hill hopping sports cars here and then so that was really. Yeah I it it it blows my mind today. How sportscar racing has taken like? Almost you know fourth seat behind Formula One NASCAR NASCAR INDYCAR disappointing. I just appointing but NASCAR race. NASCAR sportscar racing was hugely popular. during Riverside's heyday and that was that was their mark event. That was there. That was your moneymaker. Yeah I would've loved to see you know the the older cars there out of curiosity. I'm looking being in the race results. The year Stirling Moss one in Formula One has the length listed at five point two seven seven one. Oh you know why. That's because hundred kilometers in this whole that whole European numbers things really confusing. We're going to leave. That in the episode is that was it was user. Error Iraq raised here erased here recent riverside for many years many years you have the first. The first season of of Iraq I believe was seventy four and They are Riverside was one of the Iraq race so I WANNA say Mark Donohue won the first Iraq side. If I'm not that mistake yeah yeah. He won twice there Mario on Bobby Unser won. Seem trying to pick out some other. INDYCAR names Scott. pruitt one in eighty eighty eight. which was the last Iraq year and then Emerson Fittipaldi won nineteen seventy-five. Yes there's some. There's some huge winners even in the in the IRA series these that were open wheel related. I mean I know the series I kinda miss you know that was back in the seventies eighties. It was pretty cool. They used to ah the first year they had. Everyone had a porsche. Carrera you know then they. They don't want the Camaros or whatever and they they kinda sanitized it and and You know in in the in the later years of Iraq they made it favor of the NASCAR guys because of the type of car but early on. It was more of a sports car than than stock car in Iraq. But that's another neat series. That's just gone and lost to us. Yeah I definitely I mean I remember watching the IRS. Here is growing up than I did not know until just now that it used to be well. The first couple of years were a poor series which sounds amazing. Oh yeah much better than the you know the era Camaro they had in the ninety so yes so we will wrap this up here with kind of you know. Howie typically wrap wrap these up? The downfall of riverside was the typical land became more valuable elsewhere sort of issue. Oh Oh that's exactly. What the issue was these housing development started popping up around and then they Eh polly unless Richter got outs They sold the track to a guy named Fritz. Duda who was a racing guy and had every intention of continuing racing. You know people were were Kinda glad that they sold it. The Fritz rather than selling it to land developer Fritz tried to hold on for a while he purchased the track in nineteen eighty three By by nineteen eighty eight. It was apparent that that number one local opposition to the the noise right as well as of course just the the urban sprawl and development went around on their made it much more attractive to just go ahead and sell it and have them redevelop the property And they started dismantling the track in nineteen eighty nine the last Last major event there was a NASCAR race The knife and eighty eight. I believe Ricky Rudd was the winner. was the last major race. Or they they did some club racing in eighty nine few tests sessions but then they began dismantling the track and it was a long process process operations building actually stayed standing until I believe two thousand five the administration building for the track. It would repurpose but that that eventually went away The Nice thing is that the the housing development there's a shopping mall and several housing developments on the old property the housing developments there. They've in almost to the track. Most of the streets in the developments are named after race car drivers. They're just like Andretti. Elaine Gurney Way. PENSKE street surtees avenue. You Know Fourth Street there. They're all they've done that and then then they took most. This is the stuff from the administration building and a lot of the the memorabilia from the track and there was a museum. It's stood for a while it in in the riverside area and it was just you know. Hey this is where the race track used to stand. I've got all this stuff in the museum but eventually even the Ziam fell into financial trouble and a museum close twenty twelve so but literally. There's I think as late as ninety four ninety five you could still pick out turn nine and the back stretch on a map but now twenty nineteen there's literally nothing left other Other than memories and old film and I don't know what what's happened to the museum collection. Our hope that I know somebody is tending to that. But it would be nice if somebody would kind of jump in and see if we can get that stuff on display somewhere you know. Maybe maybe in the Indianapolis Museum Museum or maybe in the Nascar Hall of fame exam but but I believe that collects needs to go somewhere instead of in storage. Yeah I I would love to see what they had. They're the only only so for those who are near La and possibly are curious about driving by to check this out the handy research. I've done here says that on and there is a lowe's warehouse where the old turn nine used to be so that is your Check out the the lows there and and we can say that it was Riverside International Raceway so with that. We'll wrap up Another episode here with Riverside Help everybody enjoyed one. That was out local to Pennsylvania New Jersey Area Franken. I will be back to do another one of these At some point in the the near future frank. Thank you very much for joining me in. Have a good evening my friend. Oh thank you so much really appreciate you having me on again I just I. I really enjoyed doing these so I I appreciate you including always. Yeah no problem then hope everybody enjoyed it and we'll be back again soon the.

Autosport@70 - Choosing the greatest Indycar of all time

"Welcome to the latest dishes of the seventy podcast. Also is seventy years old and we're celebrating that taking on the challenge of picking the greatest competition cars from various various categories, and this edition is all about indycar racing and I'm very pleased that said my first guest on chief Israel Spilt Kevin Santa. My chief gas is indicated Guru David Mauch la pace who has just just finished falling on these reports podcast from the hundred and fourth running of Indianapolis five hundred, which was must have been quite strange David because it was run behind closed doors and then finished pretty strangely to. Yes the run behind closed doors thing. It's just. heartbreak for Roger Penske and that he takes over just in time to fan the sporting world collapse around it. Looks beautiful but they went enough people who enjoy it is not the first indy five hundred to end on the and they did the right thing because attenuate is going to take ages to rebuild. So, he can just have the car sitting. Idle. on the track waiting for it to be rebuilt just for three fee three or four lapped tree towns. Now, they did the right thing not not not fair enough. My second special guest is our technical editor, Jake books leg. Now, these indicators aspirated when you're talking about because you mealy Indiannapolis, five hundreds, of course. Is Much more than that's road courses, street courses. So it'd be interesting perhaps to see whether we're going to go for a car that's more oval orientated or something. That's perhaps go abroad level of success what what are you looking for in this debate? I'm looking for let's be honest with you I, quite like the. As with my age more of a modern cars perhaps and INDYCAR has been a lot more of a sort of mixed, the two Obviously, you have different parts of history where it was more of an over warranted series and then other parts when it was a little bit more road course oriented. Say We got a nice mix here. I'm looking forward to to delve into some of these. Yes they fascinating cars we're going to be looking at I'm so it to say we're GONNA start off at the other end of the spectrum for you jake. So we're going to start with with the Oldies I. Just remind people that the main criteria how successful these cars were. How much they changed the game and then we've got the the sort of the fever rating, which is our. It's just basically how much we like them. So it gives us a bit of wriggle-room the end of the day. So hopefully can be a fun with it. So I'm going to have to explain the first choice forty to my guests Eleo as well because we did have a discussion about what should be on this beforehand, I decided to pin the first one down to the nineteen twenty two Burgh, Miller the Timothy used to win the Indianapolis Five, hundred and Nine hundred, twenty two that seems a bit random. But the reason I picked is because for me, it's a bit of a stop point both Duisenberg and Miller were the two constructors and engine manufacturers as well. Of course, in the nineteen twenty s and thirty. So for me, this kind of represents the star at that point apparently the the Jason Berg went very happy because that call the chassis was actually one of the Grand Prix cars and the before, and they very pleased when he got hold of it not so pleased when he put Mueller engine in it. But David Jason Berg amid there that you know once once they've the Americans overcome the Persian, the Mercedes the indy five hundred in the suit of the nineteen teens into the twenties and thirties. These are the two big names out there for awhile absolutely and. I think the twenty cows. Absolutely exquisite and. They also. Kinda remind us just the the perils of the Pasta I mean added saying had hundred eighty five horsepower is very nearly one horsepower per cubic I think. And to think, of aim what we would refer to as pram royals. Gang around. Break Ya which Anna literally was breakout that. I've seen these guys adjust be these drivers are just beyond comprehension tons of bravery but I guess you're never frightened the. never frightened if you've just. Lived through. or saying a war. Yeah for airplanes are built like canvas string in that kind of thing, and so I think we just have a very different perspective. All I can say is at nine hundred, ninety miles an hour around the speed right in those as were famous terrifying is two hundred sixty. Miles an hour around the speedway these days and I think it's That car as well as shockingly good looking is oh sorry. Yeah definitely one of the by significant guys because it goes. Set the template for. Miller just. Kinda onus paid by the next several years. Is, yeah, remarkable Cowan obviously. It's a classic Marcus. I I was surprised when dependent down to one particular. Milica. Going to. Go. Well, I, mean I think. Harry Miller if we were talking about some of the most important figures in American welp international is will particularly American most then he would be on there. And just to get some stats to that I mean the Miller as x chassis constructor. scored. More wins than other June the. American Automobile Association. Period of indycar Racing Miller won this Indianapolis Five, hundred, sixty season burke four. So yeah, that's that was the kind of the start point but but jake. Davies. Said they're obviously they've lots of different cars scored those successes and it's not that same one. So. Although, we've sort of picked to represent a really important part of Indycar History County make through to the phone or is it just? Is it just? Representing a group Ralph and being an individual call that we could put through. Well when you look what you look at, it is nearly one hundred years old to sorry to make people feel old but it's it's such a throwback to an old age it's got. Straight engine The Harry Miller produced. A. I don't think on merit on performance they can make it through. It's it's too. It's too old fashioned it would like be letting. Other loom through is the best technologically advanced innovation of twentieth. Century I think. Nice. To look at but I think is probably a little bit too far gone to realize shove it through all the way to the final. Will I think I can live with that but I would. Think. It was worth talking about those those pretty Walker, some of them were fantastic and I completely agree with David as well I'm sure the the intrepid pilots and remember the mechanics as well. The used to climb aboard them and I mean, I mean the mechanics must have been even more crazy than the drivers. I think that that that is definitely worthy of mention Somare, my tim tip, my hat to them. I lost my point. Is qualifying speed that year? One hundred, point five. Hundred Point, five miles an hour. I realized I got into molding. T decimal points I think. But I mean it was just so way about it was such a you know I would compare it to the staff to the chaperone. TCI. Might. Nine thousand, nine, hundred, or seventy, nine, hundred. I think it was that. It really be the game on and it made everyone just like Oh my God right I need to get out stuff together. And it did set that tone until the until the war really and then. Or nearly. As. And a nose caused, but we'RE GONNA skip. Past the which is a fantastic piece of kit. Well. I'll tell you what David tennis warriors such fine. Because it was a potential winner, both sides of the war and I realised that a lot of progress. In these things halted because of the wall but in. In America's case, they didn't didn't come in until nineteen forty, take a and obviously the ATF was a winning Wilbur shows hands and. United. Really Should have been a winner in Ted Horns hands-off. As I just think is shockingly good pace of. Still, be competitive I was such A. Wide such a long duration. I mean it's Okay, my my hobbies little that Air Maserati anyway but. I just think. It also lived up to it's absolutely gorgeous looks and so that would be my quite a static argument CARRIES IT, throws. A winning machine is. Actually signed for the Lebeau so. Krant. Specialises. Yeah she knew why probably most successfully in America bizarrely well, I mean the see Maserati did win growing prison late forties but it's on the world challenge comes along or whenever out from my around of course. They still play second fiddle. So perhaps in. A bizarre situation where the foreigner is better remembered in America than it was where originated perhaps. SCHMO truly. Think Phillip Marcus, Simmons's join this this. Could. Have easily. I just wanted to point out of it. American. American radio's just so hot on British knee wife stuff there really was the second coming for. The British invasion in the early eighties for you case in music. Very strange this the people he made it over here and not. Any. Fantastic So. We're GONNA we're. So we want to the next on the list is a very much a homegrown carts, the curtis craft. And really it's almost here for a number. Reasons it kind of represents I suppose the the front engined roadster. The often hauser engine, which is still the most successful. Engine in terms of Indy Five, hundred, twenty, seven wins. So. You picked very particular on. DidN'T HE DAVID? Why did you pick this particular case craft? Well, I mean obviously. I think bill. Vukovich could be putting something. Office I can slander and it still Levin a shockingly good drive around the speedway maybe the greatest of all time. I. It was the it was the design whereby no longer look like we might refer to these days watch your at. Where you're sitting. Up. Behind the high mounted engine straddling the driveshaft and that kind of thing it was the I had a very low frontal area in comparison with anything else at the time yet for the drive beside. At the drive shot had lied down engine. And? It was just astonishing the yet and Yeah rookie basically should. He. Should have won four straight indy five hundreds I mean he like I say I'm not decrying his talent because he was. Amazing But that car was justice step up I. Mean You look at it stop grades from? Fifty to. Road. Fifty three. Things at it just looks at another closet. It's almost shocking is the pictures of Jimmy clocks lightest alongside the rights. In the Early to mid sixties it's just it's just moved the game on. And Like I say if I hadn't been for steering failure fifty, two and then. Obviously hideous accident and fifty five Vicky one. For a fourth straight five hundred and not, and it wasn't even close I mean he was just in another world. So? Yeah. That would be my argument for that. I also realized my Has a great aesthetical appeal was like the master of. That comes into as up. My feeling is that this shoot go through for a number one we're not just talking about indy five, hundred wins. Of course, it was did win other venues the championship. Events, and of course, the Kurdish craft five, hundred series they it wasn't a single car on either all see lots of specials some more special than others and what you're saying, but it is a, it's a series of cars. Filled degrade one lots of races in Hawaii that the Duesenberg Miller we talked about didn't and I think really if we took an Indycar, you've got to have a front engine roast in fact I read some of the. Most coined the term did neither the rice was one of the first people to not sure if that's one of those urban myths or not David. Gardner read rewrite his biography again really recently, but I don't. Know. If. He coined that with quite possible that since I have unless you go any objections J.. con-going going to put the the Kurtis Kraft through to the to the phone. GotTa have a front engined roadster there. Yeah I'm happy with I. Mean it was very much in that as he said at the top that is kind of often a revelation where every single car on the grid was powered by the engine at the time Obviously it was anomalous error of Formula One when it was inexplicably part of the championship well. So obviously, we've of H has. Technically F one records even though. We debate now. World. Championship victories in Jonah Lacey. For example. By winning run it's kind of a random sort of historical and normally really. Yes, I think. Licey racing at the indy five hundred. PARIKKA. Paul pullman. Paul. Five hundred yet. But actually that brings us court and honestly onto the next car, there's I'm going to throw back to to you here. Jake because this is. First of all, it's a call that kills off fit to be killed off the front engined. roadsters. Although. It's not cost the first mid engine car to appear before I wanted is not the first mid engine car that probably should have won it but it's the it's the latest thirty. A really key cough setting out what WH- indy cars would look like after nineteen, sixty five. As, very much case of. The Brits. Have to look indy five hundred Can we do anything for this and so obviously Colin Chapman Len Terry, go away make make an indycar. Off Jim Clark's go in it. ANS- turn up and it's it's phenomenal. It's phenomenal. Car Thirty eight was that evolution of the twenty, nine, thirty, four this time they brought some of their f one technology say will of the pioneering done with with monocoque that was Now Pov the partly equation Ford produced a V. Eight for them as well. So this was so of using. The the ground work that they'd done in Formula One when the t series were with very, very similar and. Bringing over to the US and tailoring. But yeah it was hugely successful So yet, maybe it maybe it should have one more. Well, that's actually a point I want to ask David and I'm always a sort of Lotus in clock fan. And and Jim Clark's win on sixty five in the five hundred I mean he described it as a perfect run. It was one of those races just everything went right led most of the race he's feel stops on point a dominated event and it was the first time that the race may want it more than one hundred and fifty mile average speed. My sort of point to you. David though is that the thirty that doesn't actually win many indycar races. Wins the huge changes, the game and yes, I know that Aj four used a couple of the chassis is to them build his early coaches as well. So it has the significance there, but does it has it gone off winds under it's On it's safe Richard to go further in this. I Don't like the way with this one. It's very question. I would say a combination of aries obviously Jimmy. Young Win Milwaukee. and. potbellied. Yes and Ponali joins. Oh sorry. One races. In. The thirty four. I BELIEVE HE S. At Milwaukee. By and twenty, nine, thirty, four. Tiny into bitches much like the coat was a development of the So I you know you start getting twenty nine striking Yeah, I mean I think he deserves to guy three because they. Spock. It did help spock a revelation oil it was another kind of light. It was another significant move a trend that was had already begun maybe not so much with the twenty nine bit sunny by the time of the thirty four people were saying roadsters as a number. Of Calls On that non sixty grid actually were already made engineer and I am I. Mean Clark had been on par with a thirty four the year before but their dad tyler problems. But in the third year, Third Time Lucky Kinda, give it. So I think on fever rating I. Think we can put. We'll put up with the latest thirty eight through the game changer plus fever rating gets it through. I think. The next one and we're going to discuss to hear because I think we need to pick one of these two cars because I think they caught into linked. Both I took interest in indy five hundred. They took interns to win races in the championship. The McLaren M16. And, the nineteen seventy-two Eagle. which may be I think the eager one more racist during the periods McLaren one more indy five hundreds the McLaren. Significant was set that aired namic trendsetter started by the late seventy, two and formula. One. Radiators inside pods a bit more damage thinking behind it. So on very interested to hear David whether you want a guy for a bit of McLaren fever or I mean Dan Golden Eagles pretty cold as well. So where do you? Where do you think we should go this one? Not. Always Stellar record in terms of race was out to partly. Result the White Bobby Unser drugs. Like every racers, hundred miles long instead of five hundred miles He which is, why has it just inordinate number pole positions but? Fewer. Fear race incident perhaps deserves. I I would the McLaughlin had. It came it came out I. E as much as anything I think the Eagle carried on refining the ideas of. The McLaren by think McLaren was the stat. And And Climbing on one I think twenty eight races over the course of Over the coast in the seventy S. eventually some of these with the an twenty four but that again was just. A natural development of the sixteen. And I think yeah in terms of. Absolute price. I Eagle ahead. but. McClellan as just the car that people. Wanted. To be reasonably. Roger Stuck with Macleod until. penske south to building. Rather, than necessarily. Switch to the Ego. On. Very happy that I mean on Golden. So set the template didn't navy that call and the other thing I like about it is that it continues winding through a rule change obviously the. 97.3 three the speeds were getting really high there. Some pretty nasty accidents. There are some rule changes, and so there's the C. D. version is the EVA Shannon, and even after that, of course, it still want to more than five hundred with with Rutherford so. Asked to be one of the other one. McLaren's eagles, we just. Filled grid to. During that period. Yeah seventy, two, seventy, four, hundred, seventy, six for McLaren and Eagle filling in the gaps in between. So kind of backed back saw your point they really so. Yeah Jake. Have you got another your you sort of a fan of the lighter seventy two in the template set influence Dui therefore give the the sort of the credit to the McLaren for doing a similar sort of thing in Indika. I think I think what's actually quite interesting about that. mackerras well is the when Gordon copy designed it for nineteen seventy one. McLaren's formula Formula One team another two years to implement something like that in formula, which is the series light society was with the with the m twenty three, which then became very very successful. So it's kind of a forebear, an indie. How was a forebear to a very successful Longo which is quite A weird bit of flax but. Yeah I think I'M GONNA I'm GonNa give it the M16 for this. Yeah and as making links to former one the next car on the list. Is Iman opinion. It feels a bit like the indycar equivalent of the latest seventy-nine for two reasons. Jake. Wanted what it brings in the technology and the other is how long it lasts at the top of the game. So it's the chaparrals two K. Yeah. Well, as we know for Chiappero and Jim who the designer of the chaparrals. In in in Canada in India is they That was the team on the other side of the Atlantic. There was pushing the development So for example with the with with the Canam 'cause the top of the seventies there was obviously the the the fun. 'cause at the back which was generating huge amounts downforce they had Movable, wings as well, which is sort of a precursor to what we have now in Formula One. And then on the UK you had. Massive ground effect suction under flow to to the car. So they were sort of like. Even a complete different teams chaperone latest say so of intertwined in that ads and developments of. Developing these ideas largely the same time So yeah, usually usually innovative brands and David, you'll be pleased now actually, they'll have a nineteen seventy-nine issue votes ball on my desk as I sit here. It's actually got a picture of the two K. on the cover. So guys fantastic. Squad Lewis cover the colleagues looks fantastic. But so where do you stand on the Dick when we talked about the Grand Prix cars we knocked out the low to seventy-nine because it didn't stay on the. Top. Long enough didn't make the most of it step Do we say the same about that the two K. I mean also, you'd rather the Nike titled Indy Five Hundred One car team pretty incredible story really, and also personally I think is a cool looking car. But is it Is it does it does it deserve to go through really. Does. It depends on whether you can't unite whether you're dragging reliability into this or not, or if we just talk about the concept and this application on on should be a factor thing is you've got to finish racism. There's no point having co in the world if it keeps that was one of the things against the latest forty nine of course, when we talked about that in one podcast, as well as nineteen sixty seven, no cars ever wasted such a performance advantage. To not win. It's all that. Yes I think he's going to probably be part of that rule was segment of the package. Worker. While I guy is there for debatable I mean seventy-nine there were a lot of. Issues. Threat to. Win Allen's who is still with the team and Barry Mind. He was one of the finest. Test drivers. His feedback was minimal, but it was always spun accurate and deposited scales onto his son which will come up. but yeah, I mean I think the the two K. was shockingly get I think it's very Interesting that. Even you considerably. You consider a lit- grateful one cows. John. Boehner was involved in and he picked the TCI for the front cover of his biography is being the apotheosis of. His achievement. AK. Finally, came good in the final round seventy-nine. And our goal is got. The way in and then just walked away from the team because he is fully out with Jim. Hill. And handed over the case to Johnny Rutherford I, mean I think we should take into account and it was so far ahead of its time that Johnny Rutherford immediately. adapted. To it and had such an perform it. Yeah I, think accessibility. Has To be part part of this. especially. In the Kate Exactly and the for someone to just step in, he said within a couple of laps. Going round. Phoenix flat and he said it caught him out just how strong Jeez ways that. Like he actually felt a London springs his lungs. Having air squeezed out there and actually letting out a grunt because he couldn't believe the G. Forces taking the shepherd around Phoenix. But the fact that he had the bravery and could immediately tap into its potential. Shows you how what do user friendly device it was binding. I think it eighty-one as well. It should have one more He actually got pretty unlucky I. I think Charlotte filled with a little. Too much too because it goes penske then started applying it. Roseburg is that any different from a lightning seventy-nine immediately being superseded by the Williams Ex W. O. Seven Basically taking what was loaned by someone else, and then make you better by making the under floor stiffer to give mighty grand the facts what. It's a remarkably similar store. Quite. Well. Before we before back decision on the chaperone and I'm very pleased that there's a chaperone there because I'm a bit of a big fan of of Jim who were. Just very, very cool. The next one analyst is the Pinch Penske PC ten, which doesn't move things on in the same way that the two K. does. It also manages to be successful across the rule change where you've got graphics and they haven't anymore. Because obviously got rick mears within tightly two. Then, onto senior, doing the job in eighty-three. So it's got slightly longer longevity than Chaparral hasn't moved the game warning the same way. And actually MRIs own the big one doesn't it in one of their multiple indy-500 finishes? In, God forbid the I criticize Rick Master As. A hero but I mean that was more a combination of slight misjudgements and Rick. Rick shrimp a little too early he fails and also and penske taking gave him a little too much gas in that final stop says cobwebs at bit heavy. Otherwise yet he would have been passed awhile which, and let's not forget that wildcat was based on the FW. Layout as I think I had. Maybe. Game on, but it is to me it's like the there's any. Off The ground effect air. and May is. When they took the only ground the facts off they realize that everything was pointing in the wrong direction he says the college, just a Munster I. because light none of the spree. Everything had been so subsumed by the effect grounds fact. That Yeah. The spring writings were way off The camera tie with everything was wrong. The Cobb it it's grounded factor being so. Inordinately. Strong. It it was just Just Moscow license things which is why Ground effects to that extension never come. As Testament to penske. And the team for reengineering into being successful without with that I mean, I mean praise for Penske's not not hard to come by, but that's just another example on top of something but but but Jay okay. So do we go you for the call start that starts the ground effects revolution in Nico although on Davis says he's the candidate Zanny, the peak of. before it's the rules change. Well I think we had this this problem lost them on the forum focus comp- recalls protests when we're trying to work out whether we bring the seventy-nine forward given the it started the revolution bitten continue it the P. C.. Tan is sort of like the Williams or the Brabham in this situation where it's at the ground effects kit the ball rolling. I'm a bit torn. I think this case. Yeah penske. PC. Ten was a fantastic car. But there's some some luster in the chaperone name. I'm more swayed. At this point enzyme. Aren't going to go I think chaparrals cooler as well. I think looks and I think David's point about immediately accessible as well is. Is a very good point because no technical innovations are like, are they so the the Chaparrals to k? Goes through to the final half whenever we want to another. Famous constructor that serves big in indycar certainly in the nineteen eighty s, and we reckon this is probably the best the bumps. In fact I think Mario Andretti thinks is the best of the bump. So that's pretty good. Pretty good endorsed the march eighty, six C so. David loder taken taken the initiative with the in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, hundred, and March sort of had to bounce back against them and the six was was the call that sort of really did it wasn't it? Yeah I mean looking down and from eighty six, the fact that the top three finishes in the tribe a driving and might eighty six. And the next to Lila. Eight that 's to me is the fact that. He's pretty much. A- giveaway that it was truly a remarkable cabin at we get into this area where we talk about families because I'm. A little lighter on our next choice. Wasn't the greatest and Yeah, probably. I think. How many Winston score that yet several I always, and this is a purist. May I always look at pole positions while because? That is the ultimate pace and quotes several polls. I think the fact that it was being done by the ebbing run by three different teams. As well is a giveaway de Israel as to how strong it was. Bobby. Driving Fraternity Sports Michael for Craig Karen Ninety Seven. Penske at I think it's fantastic site I was GonNa pick I need much that would that would probably be what? s another car with some. Of a designer with future one because I knew he was involved in that car course as well. So that's John Boehner Taji new, even the the two cars that we've. We've talked about. So, what do you think J I mean my feeling on. This is not my favorite ear in terms of aesthetics indy I have to say I, preferred the. Thing, Cup. Referred the seventies and the nineties over the eighties indy cars I don't know whether that's that's fair. But Yeah I've always the march was a little bit on the PACI and from an aesthetic point voc is very good. In an AG new car is not normally described like that. So so jake, what did you? Where'd you stand on the eighty six? Say Bobby Ray who won the championship in? Aesthetically, the drivers a little bit far forward in relation to the back of the car, it does look a little bit of our propulsion. But Yeah as you say, isn't Adrian Newey. Penned car came after his. After he left the fits powder team master, it ended and he has spent a little bit of time in the US before March. Saw, how successful scowl was brought him back to f one penny the the one Yeah I think in terms of success is. Phenomenal, car we were in that age where everyone is using of the dfee derived Cosworth, the fx that the turbo. Vary. That wasn't. In the eighties, it's weird because there was variation chassis constructs time when you look at series like formula three, thousand, that kind of thing. But the fact that it was dominated by lolas marches in March say say strong it's a little bit off. A strange side note but. I think new. penske. Quite. Follow period of time. And you've got these penske guys using the the march that year. I think in terms of success is phenomenal. It doesn't fill me with a massive amount of. Excitement is fever rating we're talking about is it? It's not it's just it's missing something is missing. So Yeah I and I'm also looking at the other calls that we've already put through and the two K. Chaparral. Similar kind of. Success in terms of how long it was successful for similar in that respect. But the UK moves the moves the guy wanting to way I don't think the march does and I think is kind of cool looking car. So I think we can certainly say that the march one of the great customer cars if you take. And probably the finest March indycar but I think I might be fall by the wayside at this point and we're not going to move onto an David talked about the series of cars, which is a bit of a sometimes a bit of an issue to which one are you talking about but we have an answer for this one because we've asked the design himself, which makes makes laugh little bit easier. So this is the this the t ninety smash double-o series of Lola's which went from the ninety two to ninety three. And Bruce Ashmore who designed the Those cars he picked the t ninety one he thought that was just that was the sweet spot that was the one way had the performance and the adjustability, and it was just a really refined version. Of the of the ninety. I mean, load the sweet the championships during this period the one thing I found slightly strange David. is its inability to win the indy five, hundred after nineteen ninety. Now do we hold the fact that Rick mears pulled out? One of the greatest motorsport performances of all time to stop walk'll Andretti winning the nineteen, ninety, one, hundred, five, hundred against. Against Louder is that a bit harsh. Yeah when you get to driver drive a genius into this. I. Mean obviously Is Always. Annoyed. The Hell I'm either. Nevis. Goes Indy five hundred victory. because. Olien gradients unfortunately, one of the ingredients andretti terrible luck. Whether we're talking father. Now I gotta you should. I think. Vadim inspiration from. Mass. Yeah. I think we should look at the fact that in fact that race Michael almost. Latte record one point. As deep because of the way the styling rick back onto. The title of say. The pack that he was able to. Perform that Dr. Michael just like he dated ninety. Starring and the should yeah against. Drive I refuse to believe any other driver would eventually even tried that Minerva, carry the. Other, the mayor sites yeah to me is the same thing that we're talking about Penske PC ten. And On any other. Dot Com would have won the five hundred we can. Against it. I mean I. It's just such. An interesting period lighter isn't that because we have In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. Like. It's the engine. It later down prevents the ninety-two from becoming an indy five hundred. Ninety three, it's tremendous inexperience of restarts. The run does it. Cost I didn't. Could have one that racist while the other name has slowly. So I. Mean I think that whole whole period of naming housemates fourteen is is truly while cat counts against the lawyer winning at the five hundred rather than. Rather, than any issues with the car itself, I mean I I think nice cars with. A. Wonderful. Just e obviously in one thousand, nine, hundred. And Michael Schumacher won the championship. Causeway speak. Blowing up but then of course, in ninety three by then it's refined he's gone off to a disaster. McLaren, and Nigel wins championships. So yeah, I mean I just think that whole period of Lila's. Just awesome and I I want to give a Lotta credit acted. Out Out JANEA 'cause he really helped post team into. Getting that unfair advantage here. It's about twenty years earlier penske. Yeah he really helped his feedback was just so spot on. I mean I on the. Great period of indycar history isn't ugo multi multi, lots of teams at the front. Nothing the calls I think the calls look cool. We Chris is the march slightly but other you into that Zimmer line kind of almost like more meaty aggressive from Rwandan cars with more was racing cars with something. That's good. And just back, your point about ninety one, Margie sequels won eight races on his way to the title that season. and. It's rare for anyone to win especially those days when they were a well obviously, we've got guitar calendars all over the place now, but that's half the races. which she's which is pretty unbelievable in such a competitive. So. I. Think also the Mansell factor if you're talking about the family of causing that read indycar racing. In terms of interest in Europe during that period as well and that Lola looked cool as well. So so jake or whereas we got rid of the march on on these these grounds do we all Wanna put allowed to throw? I'll be honest. See ninety-one w. should go through the absolute is absolutely gorgeous car. As he said, it was the age of Indycar where you start to get all of these. Huge amounts of top line drivers, teams, all the front huge variation in engines plies as well. It's is baby golden. H. I WANNA put on a culture as well. If we don't we haven't got any representation from Florida. Very Survey Component Yeah Lola how we have in the same way You've got to have a penske gotta have a good revenue thing in the in the fall into by. The next, which is a Penske, and we're sort slightly cheating here because it's two calls in one, the twenty-three. which dominates the challenge one, two, three in the championship. So so the team won with with junior M Amsterdam Paul. Tracy won twelve of the sixteen races you kind of inter McLaren Williams ask domination. Of. INDYCAR racing but it's probably most famous for the one race that they ran the twenty-three bay. which j you know something about and to Jake I and they will come to you dave conceal small there. Because there's Penske also had a second program with car running, which was pretty special. Wasn't it? Yeah. That was the one off L. Mercedes special super special engine that was. So dominant in the in the night four and five hundred a phenomenal story if animal CEO. Obviously this was all orchestrated by. And penske working for various different locations. Obviously doing the testing in the. US. But penske had the. The the base in the UK. ill more put together the soup special engine because. You're able to use a push rod engine back at the time and you get more turbo boost pressure than you words running just like a standard twin cam engine. So. Penske saw that I thought we can get so much more speed so much more power this engine in the indy five hundred if we run it. because. They didn't want it to get banned beforehand. They did it in complete secrecy as well. tested our I think there was a test. Another thing were Paul Tracy. Hutchinson. He barely fail the what he got out of the car. And then when it came to the indy five hundred, they blew everybody away and it was the the contrived them of won t finish was fittipaldi pinning it towards the end so I find it such an interesting goal obviously with the engine, and then obviously after that race the beast regulations got turned down dramatically. So it was basically that was kind of the end for off after one rice why firefighting is that? It wasn't actually got. A chassis with that big beast engine it. yeah. You say out drinking he says having it was sorry. Straits. Slight outside much. For And the PT said he? This guessing apparently, he tripped me ten, three, speed trap two, hundred, fifty, three miles. But unfortunately, he tried to carry too much sleep. To by two that three three time, which is why he ended up having to qualify following weekend 'cause he had the mother and father of our REX. But I mean it was not a entirely pleasant counter-drive and I'm sure that's part of the reason am I. Bend it but that was also driven somewhat by. Ego because he's trying to. US trying to junior a lot bail. At the time and. I just got to high coming out of the full, but it was A. Tricky To handle but the standard PC twenty three was a good chassis bulls in it because I mean while no different types of circuit raising and again part of that was. Allen is testing ability cause. AMMO. Allen says He. Just. He just to me is the absolute best combination of. Their qualities. Paul Tracy in the Amazon, vote is no surprise to me that that's. I eight. Eight wins I think that you. And Yeah. He fully deserved his championship. Yeah. He could be Oh, fire fire in the. In the races but I is I think he got safe you. Fo- positions junior I think six of them came there. In Ninety Four. because. That's how superior. Betty's also because he understood it. Sight well matches. Mario. Andretti. In qualifying. Had A better record than Ronnie Peterson latest seventy-nine. It's because he he understood the car he knew what he was going for. And he just. Absolutely. Right. Balance and when you bear in mind that the later t ninety four was not vaca. Marianne Manzo driving and it couldn't even get snippet victory. I I just think. The, the twenty three unfairly overshadowed by the twenty-three because of what happened to indy. But when you consider that Roger Penske considers that his favorite victory at the speed of. Eighteen I. Think. That's as good reasons I need to include it in a final. Yeah. Familiar. This is not you know Brian because the standard calls one of the most dominant causing decal history. One two, three, and the champion you'd literally can't do better than that, and then you also go see the indy story and I always rather like if a car so amazing that they have to change the rules, which is one of the reasons why I made a very strong case ultimately futile in sports car one, nine, one, seven should wait and Michelle I'm still seething about, but I'll get over it. So the Pinski pc three is definitely going through to the I know. Currency, they're gonNA. Let us go. On I'll get one day I'm sure. So yeah. People who've listened to in order otherwise that's giving away the away to. The conclusion to one of our other podcast for America's. WHAT BIGGEST That's true. That's true. Good point we will move on. They'll be other people now. Saying what? No one seven. Well, exactly. Yes. Yes. You may ask that question and a very good question. It would be anyway obsolete tractors. I'm not supposed to do that I'm the host, right? The next car is another constructor from another constructs that we have to include. One on it's actually made a habit of winning on its debut and all sorts of categories. One on one on its debut in Indycar became the car to have at one point and the man behind. The company Adrian Reynard described the nine Reynard Ninety, seven. I am probably the peak of what they designed built in that period and I'm I'm not going to disagree with with him and actually Malcolm actually actually designed the car. He reckon the ninety six Lola was better than the ninety-six rain but they got away with it because of toys, engines, teams, and drivers whereas he said, the ninety seven call wars and the thing that crushed cross, Lola properly. What was it? That he? A he believed was special ninety seven. and was I- extra stat was Something about gearbox location and I changed the they changed the location gable I mean maybe that's more of a question for for Jay I'll throw tim in just a second but just can't I can't not pass this on before before-mentioned Alex. Zanardi. Is just the cutest cutest drivers of all time his knee, the chip Ganassi car I mean that was appeared. It's armor I was hooked into watching indycar racing as well. Another competitor I think the calls looks superb and so and and the Reynard was kind of the peak of that. Really. So. Yeah. So Jake, can you tell us maybe a little bit more about why the the ninety seven all I was was was such a substitute car well as as Isler said he was In design terms when of age in. Loyally tenants if you like followed Adrian Reynard. Project while after that that Pori Wilson is successful Farina. But? No, he said the. Effort. As the ninety six, it was better than I seventy eight sort of the dynamics new transverse gearbox they tied up the Taba a little bit. made it. Stiffer and stronger. So everything the ninety-six, I've seen the ninety-six call in the flash they used to have Bryan. Hunters. Reynard in the in the shop Oxford Brookes workshop. Always look at it longingly at a there was like a sign in the seat says do not sit in here I'll just that like knowns look it. Ron Sit in I'm getting. The one from Laguna Seca where he got. He got famously done by Mr Zanardi corkscrew. Please tell me I think he may will be. Back, on someone else can always complain later. Yeah. Six call was. Had the OH yeah. I think is in. Oval conflicts that might not be one. Wouldn't liberatore with that would have been how would have been lot more interesting Now, that's a hookup The ninety seven call was just they feel better Obviously that's I'm. Again I mentioned before had all of these different chassis constructors time and obviously I think by that point march on the where the doodoo route wrote wasn't building in cars who kind of just this Lola Reynard. Five supremacy across all of these international categories, well, an swift of course in America where oil had A. Sort of there for I mean one of the things that rainouts said about this of course, this song when they were saying. Believable average lap speeds on the super speedways. Just into. Ended up at David W member is over two hundred, forty miles an hour isn't it? And that's not an average speed for that. I mean, that's just crazy. I was lucky enough to be there for the on that occasion. Honestly it's like standing in the middle of and Asher. Just watching. It just. Gives me gazed bombs now still actually because I I'd never say anything on the ground move that fast probably never will again. Unless we get. Indy five hundred brackets back. Yeah Truly Sunday got. For me you know we always go on about how brilliant they get nasty team was just getting the best of everything Jimmy Vasser clearly on rising stars. He is GonNa get on street courses but also rarely. A fantastic guy for feedback on ovals Israel. So you got hair Meka. Just. The fighter worry he's kind of like that surrender allonge. streaking. Like just will not give out I. Know you've got right chassis Honda engine which is already proving to be. King Dangling. That time I then five starting ties. But the amazing. That what site well, and good gist as well. I mean your with the fire started about it. He he felt he used like pushing drum out says sometimes when it came to dealing the good news at that point but. The combination haven walker racing, and yet gills technical adeptness just my that. That package even on goodyear tyres into something really quite ability ends up second in the championship and he got one win not yet. That was the he should got win at Portland as well. No fence analogy listening. But yeah, I think the. Ice Dot, com just worked in a variety of hands and I think it's really important. Now we're into. Very, much to the customer era is important. For a designer to come up with a design that was across the whole spectrum of tracks. Obviously. But also. is not. In not just being. You GotTa realize it at this point. These cows aren't being designed with the driver giving feedback these just designed. A drawing office is not like Lila had a test drive or Reynard had eight test driver or you swift tied I test drive. And they were just being given to a eighteen to hone it into something competitive. These things have to be immediately competitive. You get your sums wrong and you have consigned. Your teams to a year. Dreadful results so That always impressed me about they're. Right, now, being able to just come into series and win. I said I think that's a very good point I think we we only get used to about in certainly an F. One terms of. The drive is developing the car and the team is built around the one driver. I think it's completely different design engineering challenge isn't to make a call that's successful across, and as you say, not just drivers and different circuits, but also different ties in India I. Mean It's remarkable challenging for that call to have been successful as it was and I think for the same reason, the lower goes through the Reynard has to has to go through as well. It doesn't have indy five hundred win to its name, but there's a very good reason that and that's because obviously we'd had are sadly we'd have the Indy Caspit by them which we're not going to go too much into. The fact that we've got a big gap now between. So that's a nineteen, ninety-seven car and the next and final car analyst comes along fifteen years. Later, I think probably tells you what you need to know about American open wheel racing in yearly the early years of the twenty first century unfortunately. But it's the it's the DELARA d-w twelve. Now, this is different to all the other calls on the list in the sense that we're into one category now, and normally normally we like multi make contests. For Welfare obvious reasons variety technical challenge, all that sort of thing. The reason the DWI is on this list now being David whether you agree with this is that me it kind of represents the INDYCAR recovery post. Unification. So I know that the irs five was the car that was actually on the ground as it were when that happened. But for me the W twelve in particular, the lightest era case that we've got now are just in the call Luke's coal a championship looks healthier again, it's got some good drivers in property teams and it kind of is a very good single mike call. If you see main deliver a very good at that. Do you think that's fair. I think it is fair and I kind of share your sentiments because like I say Patriot from. The I two, thousand, nine, ten eleven I sell familiar helmet sticking out of it, but I don't see the. I. Say Sticky out the loan dot in a a and adjust represents the bad old days if Sim really very good drivers populating the back of the great and. Strong. Teams having to. Pay Drivers in that kind of thing. Yet I mean, I ask outlets they renaissance Dwi talk because. There are some really. With it's about like the bumper pods and like that. Implies that look like they just ripped off and one. GP. And the back to front from game place. There's just some things that just didn't Shaima may at all. But. The suddenly the racing. A lot better. The anything I got wrong with. The package for the brick because I became unfortunately a pack Christ, which is what we've been trying to get away from all the other ovals I'd Dwi. Keila on only other. than. Indy five hundred hundred breezy. Everyone slipstreaming and like ten ten counts fighting for the lead on the last lap, which may be what some people want but. It didn't. It didn't allow a great deal as the variety on behalf of. The change. That is one downside. Some technical light were probably. Relate to this the engineering departments of. indicating I've the last twenty years have shrunk United Chasing The highness things now. And True Innovation? I'm afraid is. Nowhere to be seen, even the IRS five. Yeah. You could different things like different the Mirror Mirror stokes in that kind of thing just to find your era. That era even not era has gone in a year they just chasing. Tiny tiny fractions now and I I think. They, still a large part of the Indie cocky means the. Height to see that disappear fair in terms of the racing unattended solidity. And the ability to raise on types attract I. Think W has absolutely been a blessing and I still regard the current guy as a Dwi. But with KRISPIES beautiful. Erica on A. degree. That it's going to throw to Jake and actually say the one thing I like about latest indy cars is that they actually had the the sort of the bulls if you like to really go Mike. Looks Bedroom that will race better rather than having constant arguments about all this disadvant- that and this. One is taken decades to get you know it was obvious that you had. Problems in the India light is into the early nods in Formula One and only now are we looking at possibly use rules or two, thousand, twenty two? But actually this is a series really taking the bull by the horns and improving improving. Isn't it? Yeah. I agree as you say, the car represents that recovery the of. Between two, thousand and twenty tens were a weird and. Disjointed time. What will say is sort of That little bit of time before they settled on this Eric the the very first set very kits that the manufacturers to prove themselves. It was a a misstep in that regard obviously when you've got the same Erica on obviously. The Star it didn't look fantastic but you know it was It looks like an Indycar to a degree, but then you have these. We it Arica, and remember the first the first race of twenty, fifteen, twenty, two, thousand, fifteen. Yeah Pacers Berg and there's just bits flying everywhere and they was. So it was more more caution periods than they usually are But it it was just weird of battle between Chevy and home the. Son Honda's Honda's from wing I. mean the amount of flakes when you saw them accelerate the attic payback's it reminded me that I hope black and white movies of you know. Like early French aviators trying to fly like nine wings. Attached to them. To. Kinda. Benny Hill. Map. Piano music in the background laid a little and then It was awful I do kind of agree with Walker that he wanted to get more of a distinction between Chevy and Onda is his way of trying to get kate the manufacturers. Happy because Chevy then got the lead and allowed hundreds of improve Eric it and. That didn't guy downside while we I mean. This is a problem when you open it up, someone's going to end up. Superior. Surfing and that air is just a very. Air. 'cause if he'd if he looked back now at twenty seventeen. which is the last year. The manufacturer Eric is constant more dated than. The original DWI throw in two thousand twelve. Looks just clung a looks like they're still got their packing cases around but. I just awfully stuck everywhere and yet. Didn't improve the racing whatsoever. I. Narrow even firing off different. Trial Patents as well in terms of. The draft off a Honda was different from what you've got. A Chevy, and it was really noticeable on the road kate forms on long straight such as Road America. Bowed I said that there's just completely different from following a Honda Three Chevy and he didn't have thoughts because he was in one and the other moments in the other. He said, it just got terribly confusing and say, yeah. And ridiculous amounts of downforce I mean the cows effective in that regard I. I have a picture somewhere I think fine. Of willpower is basically they`ll Blood. Vessels I from where he was going round Phoenix. Endlessly testing and it looks like somebody is just horrifying. How much emphasize college. Now, that is never gonNA lead to get racing and I'm afraid while on this Ron I would say that that. Lack of your racing is okay. What drove US PHOENIX IS A. Dreadful. Well, I. Think I. Think all the reasons you've outlined I. Think it was it was worth mentioning the car I think because of. A deal indycar racing is better now than it was. Ten for ten fifteen years ago. Well. Let's than colts. Non. But. They need more horsepower apart from that. The Racing He's fantastic. Yeah. So I think it's not going to go through for all those reasons and frankly mice assigned things about indycar racing. History is how ECLECTIC and brilliant and different environment the different constructors in different summations. INDYCAR started with only early days. You got specials individual specials. All individual cars and we're now in a position Baden boats bowl where of course we've got. All the cars of the sign win. There are many reasons for that, but it's just not cause fevers it so. Not. GonNa put to lower three, which means we do have our final group of cars. Guy W being taking notes. got. Yes. You'll be terrible. So. Exposed to go back and listen to. This? So that the fondly are the Curtis Craft that the five hundred series of roadsters the Lotus Thirty, eight, the McLennan sixteen, a chaperone UK. The Lola T ninety-one, Double-o, the Reynard ninety-seven I, and the Pinski. Twenty three. So at this point I'm going to throw guys and say I the. Is there a call you really want to lose off that list? Is there a car that you want to champion and is there a call that we've missed that you think we should at least mentioned I mean obviously managed to get David to mention the Maserati earlier on. Any calls that we probably unquote founded upon Andy. Jones roadsters in the sixties I. Think they look quite. They can caught caught. No. Can you these Albania anything else that we should be about before we pick a winner? I WANNA I wanNA champion Let ninety-one Leyla. To if you say Indycar to me, that's the sort of thing I think of. And as you said, it was. Twenty six. On T, Nolan thies cal. This is ridiculous. Into a wormhole is terrible news. But. Growing up, and you're kind of I experienced vindicator is that stint that Niger Months Day in the ninety s and that's that's the key is the evolution. So me for me that's that's were indycar. Is I know that you guys will have different views. But as as a young ling. Would like to put the three. please. So, Roy okay. Well, that's a straight in for the kill with with louder what what do you think? David if you are a bitch thrown out nine, hundred, ninety seven. Actually. The Lila. Just because we caught quite defined, which Layla we think is the the really special to me. The T T K's is everything is right about an indica and innovation chaperone TCI. But I can't not longevity of the McClellan M16 nothing that is gonNa be my choice because he pled by the lines of the how much like to set was dying genius. Jimmy Clock And other people drove light states like I dry in. The. To the greatest drivers are all time And it was so different in concept that you think. Well, I didn't actually take that long for the for it to be superseded. Light Society. Because if you look at the Clinton, Rona, hulk which was based on the bribe. That was right out that. The within a year and a half as like I said he h imagines. So? That would be my argument about eight that he got say critically I if you're going to keep. McClellan sixteen just attache longevity and it's adaptability you mentioned earlier they went through these rose changes and there were stowed. Kingpin. I think the M Sixteen for me beats beats the two. K.. Party. For that longevity also because of course. Ground affects when two way. That was that was although it was an innovation innovation that didn't stick whereas the dynamic approach the sixteen did did stick and. I still continued to have an impact. The only other call I want to throw into the mix and maybe as we've. Are decant can't I was leaning towards the lowly little I liked Jake's argument. But I think is a problem that we can't pick it individual wanted to pick a family of cars Darcy Lot. We're we're leaning things in Lola's favorite a little bit too much before we make a decision just mentioned the Penske PC twenty, three, twenty, three because it's a great it's a great chassis. During the the main part of the season and An. Innovative engine for the indy five hundred. I'm struggling to really. Push past the McLaren. M16. So Jake a put back to you if we've got rid of the Lila, are you happy the macron sixteen? As the. That we're GONNA GO FOR I. Genuinely. Not Arenas not really sure why was going to go you fall wanted to hear the arguments. And Yet, that seems. kind of it would feel right if a penske was the grace's Indika. And without doubt, the greatest, the greatest Indycar team is the greatest American motorsport team. Of all time surely. But there's not one car almost really demonstrates how good they've been. They want everything but maybe we get around it by saying, of course, the first team to win the indy five, hundred with McLaren. Sixteen was. Pinson. So I think I'll just taught myself around to maybe agreeing with David J you can run off in a hard thing or you. Think. That's I think that's a perfect compromise. Looking after they had the M16 display when I was doing some. Bits McLaren I think some point last year and is a lovely car successful and obviously if we want to put the pens he compromise in it fits perfectly so more than happy to get along with them. Well, that is not the result the oil expected when we started I'm not sure that I did particularly expect one but there we go. So an auto sports. Greatest Indycar of all time is the McLaren M16. So that is what is going to go through to to the grand final against the winds from the other categories. Are you allowed to tell us I, can tell you after we've recording David probably be interested here or there and but yeah. So. That just leaves me say thank you very much to you. The listener please delays. Now, what you think on social media or email us at audible sport dot com you can tell you can tell us what we got completely wrong on and what we should've picked instead an idol like to thank David and Jay very much for joining May Hug You guys enjoyed it as much as I did.

Stewart was one of over one thousand joint service members who gathered to place flags in front of two hundred sixty thousand headstones of memorial day authorities in south florida are continuing to search for suspects after two people died and at least twenty others were injured in a shooting early sunday.

The french open resumes. Monday including a match up. Featuring seventh seeded serena williams who will face irina camelia bagel. They gave birth and loved their children and they want to remind you not all pregnant. People are women transgender and non binary people give birth and many want to see more gender neutral language in law and medicine. You're about to hear from tristan. Reese who was a transgender man who gave birth to a son in twenty seventeen. He says this language is a positive shift toward inclusivity and so we wanted to door family ended up actually being the most straightforward way to do it ourselves biologically hot while my goal for me. Pregnancy was to be the most boring pregnancy that anyone of my providers at ever encountered which They thought was hilarious. Because i was the only man that they'd ever encountered who'd had a baby. It was just the happiest moment. i'd never been in a room when a baby was born before So i wasn't really sure what to expect Bite when they held them up into the light you know we got to hear him make his first cry for the first time it was. Yeah it was probably the most profound and powerful miraculous woman on my whole life. You know the reality is hundreds and maybe thousands of transgender people like me have given birth all over the world over the last at least twenty one years that we know and i think what most people don't understand is when supportive protections are in place that say that therefore for pregnant women. Obviously people like me are supposed to be. Included is for anyone who has a baby. Even if you don't happen to be a woman who's doing well you know families like mine. Our transgender families. Lgbt families we want the same things that everyone else tests. We want time off to take care of our kids when they get sick or have kids. If they're being born you know we want a chance to work hard and put a roof over our heads and to be in a community of support and unfortunately you know the systems just haven't kept up for families like ours strong voices. I will tell you a story even though obviously the spirit of the law is. It's to make sure that families start off on the right foot is to make sure that people have time to heal and bond with their children and lay that strong foundation for a lifetime of familial love and support and so when we just make this small shift from pregnant women to pregnant people or just pregnancy in general it just means that no one is going to be able to make it harder for me to get access to care when i'm pregnant or when i'm in labor and delivery when i'm going in to try and get services for my family what we usually find is when you use inclusive language for one community more people than you would ever imagine than also get to have some of those basic protections that quite frankly.

Eight hundred two one five six eight one to eight hundred two one five six eight one to eight hundred two one five six eight one two. That's eight hundred. Two one five sixty eight twelve serious. You cannot be serious. For case. Rick title is a majestic stallion horrid. Thank you for that and welcome back to the show rectal with you. Coast to coast and around the world on american forces radio network. You know. I have friend who you've a friend. I know it's hard to believe. But i have a friend who thinks that you know. Eighty eighty one home games and eighty one road. Games is just too much. The baseball season is too long for one hundred and sixty two. And i couldn't disagree more but i was thinking about this great series between the phillies and the mets of course new york and philly of always had a rivalry. Philly's kinda like the little brother. Even though they were where our country. I started seat of government right. And you know you just you think about fighting in the same division as well there was a play and it was one of the worst calls i've ever seen Andrew mccutchen was running the second base and the empire called him out for getting out of the baseline and he never deviated from a straight path. Even once you're allowed three feet on either side which means you can actually take one full step to the left or to the left to the right now He didn't even do that. He just ran. And then he dove headfirst year out. You went out of the baseline and you can't replay it. It's a judgment call. And joe girardi manager them. That's comes out and of course you know. The whole game uses knows sticking over his mask. Just take the mask off your you look dumber with your nose off then with no mask at all because you have no mascot all you're like you know screw you. I'm not wearing a mask but when you have your nose out. You're like i don't know how to wear a mask but anyway Girardi came out. And he's like what the hell are you talking about. But i think about yesterday. The very impressive game that the mets won over the phillies in philadelphia. Eight two seven. And the mets took a all three games They pulled in up to five hundred eleven and eleven and that's actually tied for first place in the east and eli's with twelve and twelve washington Phillies now two games under but they got a home. Run from catch. They one from gregorious. They got a strong start from zack. Elfin he's got a great six pack by the way that's ephron zach elfin and the phillies leading four to going to the eighth but then it was the pillar in villers show or the pr in vr. Kevin pillar began the top of the eighth with a home. Run off brandon kessler and jonathan. Vr fault with a single one out later. A jose peraza slapped a single to right and took advantage of a very Inattentive and frustrated. Reese hoskins as the ball by them. He kinda jogged after it. Vr went to third and completely stop completely stopped and then thought screw it and ran home and hoskins was like wait. What and he's like up too late and he didn't even get a throw off is humiliating. Tie game so at that point you're already turned to solve varotto. Who was only available because he appealed is three game suspension for touching off the bench clearing brawl. That happened friday night against the mets and he allowed the first three batters to reach and david hale came in to face. Pete lonzo and pete alonso cleared the bases and that made it eight to four new york. But there's more the phillies went quietly in the eighth. But in the ninth edwin diaz closer came in gregorious leadoff base on balls and then roman quinn a one out triple to make it eight to five oble. Harare struck out matt. Joyce who still playing walked and that brought up reese hoskins the author of the major gaffe. The hoskins boehner in the prior in. And what did he do. He hit a home. Run the kid out of sacramento state nor cal by a bomb eight to eight but it was reviewed and it hit the railing in has to go over the railing when it came back to the field and so the empires permitted to runs to score on that. Play the third and the tying run. Though instead of an eight-day tie it was an eight seven. Lead and next up was bryce harper who appeared to tweak his wrist on a swing and miss and his prior. Bad you're familiar. Uh who was in for the incinerated d. as needed six pitches familiar. I can't believe he's still plan. But it takes a special confluence of miseries to out mets the mets but that's what the phillies managed to do The only consolation is that it's not a very good division. In fact last place. Miami is just two and a half out. But the thing i remember. Bryce harper got thrown out from the dugout the game before because he was yelling at the ons on that ridiculous mccutchen play so as i just described it. That was one game between two cities. That arrivals between two teams that are divisional rivals and just people getting pumped up. It's the first in. May and this is why i love baseball season because you can get three boring stinkers in a row and then you can get an epic game like that. Just absolutely epic. My as when they started off a one six one seven. They won thirteen games in a row. And then they almost got four-game sweep by the orioles. There there are some ups and there are some downs. But i think probably the most curious thing if you haven't noticed the best team in baseball right now are the milwaukee brewers now. They had a little bit of a bloodbath yesterday. But they don't talk Run difference doesn't mean anything but still they took three out of four from the dodgers and the week before that they swept the padres. So i'm sorry. They are the best team in baseball right now. At seventeen and eleven and the dodgers by the way have not won a series in over two weeks. And we'll see about that by the way. Here's the thing about fernando tatis junior this weekend he finally played his first quote unquote full season. He got to one hundred sixty two games. He's twenty two years old so he just got to one hundred sixty two games and in his career. Forty seven home runs and thirty two steals. This is a kid who's just learning right now so You wonder why he makes the money he makes. We also heard that He seuss lazardo. the hot young prospect for the as who's in the rotation and he's not having a great year so far And that He the headline is when across even regular news is that he broke a finger playing video games. Now they'll be people who will say video games of the root of all evil in the world. This is just another example. And what a door with. This video games will break your hands and i saw the headline and i thought well first of all david price will probably chime in on this somehow mr fortnight but i thought you know i have played to the point where i almost got the stigmata on the old controller. Boring a hole in the middle of my hand. I've had nintendo thumb before where my thumb just sits there and shakes uncontrollably. But i thought how could you possibly break a finger. He punched a table. He was playing video games and he got mad and he slammed his hand down on a table and gave a hairline fracture to his pinkie. That's not video games fault. If he was holding a dual shock for something and then he was playing it and then all of a sudden he pushed a button and it just like snap back and broke his finger. I'd be like oh my gosh you know but somebody will say oh. We need to put that in your contract now. Mike when carney lansford hurt himself on his snowmobile or madison. Bumgarner hurt himself on a dirt bike. Or jeff can't quote unquote washing his truck. By the way when. Jeff camp was a jeff can't i should say was a teenager. He would go into the bathroom for a long amounts of time to comb his hair. We'll see if it's written into contracts. No dirt bikes. Got it no snow snowmobiles. Got it no pickup basketball. Okay and video games way. What i'm not. I'm not signing and i'm not signing but as i said it's may you look at the astros. They were six in one and then they were one in nine and then they were eight and to the You know this other thing. I'll say about toronto. The rotation is in tatters. Lot of players aren't hitting yet and george springer is finally healthy enough to play and their two games over is that is that something should we worry about them and then the other question is especially around here. Is our the san francisco giants for real. I think one of the more You know i really liked it. When they acquired kevin gaza last year kevin. Costner was a first round pick. He was one of the best college pitchers of that whole draft when he came out. And i remember. I was working as game when he was a rookie and He was on the orioles and he. Just you know. It's not that hard with the as but absolutely just destroyed the as that day and that always stuck with me but he was good last year and so far in six starts. He has a two oh four. Era he has more strikeouts than innings. Forty ks nine in two thirds. But as i said fourth overall pick at lsu and Signing the qualifying offer was worth it. Now whether the giants are real or not. i don't know. I know that lets stella has an issue right now but the other question is are royals for real and i texted a couple of my royals media. Friends and i said l. as in royals and they said maybe your team but not ours and like the al central. Is it scary now. But the royals are six over. I don't think they're for real at all. But here's the thing next month you have to start deciding whether you're going to be a buyer or a seller and that can be tough when you tell your fan base. Hey or two games out of the wildcard or trading everybody okay. We'll try by the way speaking of strikeouts. Shane bieber the cy young award winner last year for the indians who were five hundred. This is how many strikeouts he's had in his six starts. Twelve twelve eleven. Thirteen nine eleven. Which is absurd. It's ridiculous commissioned the worst game. he's pitched six. He only struck out nine and yet they have gouged that team so hard that they're still only thirteen and thirteen right now by the way the only team in baseball. It doesn't have double digit wins. Detroit they're eight and twenty one. They're hitting one ninety five as a team. It's may. I say it's not april. It's may so don't panic yet. I'm rick tuttle come on back report.

Show brian elber is here wrestling observer ally nixon v also wrestling observer at dot com fast nationals for friday night smackdown everage one employment at nine two three million viewers on fox lowest number for this show since february twelve. That was down five point. Eight percent from last week's overnight viewership show went against night to of this year's nfl draft which aired on espn abc. The nfl network draft coverage on abc drew lower than usual numbers for that station but the draft also draws from the same type of audience as smackdown. The cable ratings. From last night won't be until monday night. One of the draft. Its best ratings on. Espn so for those of you. That don't know. The main event of smackdown was daniel bryan vs roman reigns with daniel bryan putting his smackdown career. On the line of daniel bryan did not win the title. The story was that he would be banished from smackdown. That is a big stipulation. Theoretically obviously you know people watch the nfl draft main reason. The number is down. But i mean the fact of the matter is even if you're an nfl fan if you really cared about deputy me stipulations if you really thought that daniel bryan was either gonna win the dividend me tight or whatever belt roman rain has or he was going to leave smackdown for ever it probably would have watched the show and people did not show the same point five rating eighteen to forty nine as it has seven of the last eight weeks all network programming. Eighteen to thirty four smackdown also led all network programming with a point. Three same number. This show has done every week but one so far in twenty twenty one. So i mentioned this on the dave show on on Guess would have been saturday night. But i get a lotta get a lot of emails and such a very popular man. I got twenty five thousand nine hundred and one unread emails here. But the point is usually when something happens on smackdown or raw or aws exte-. I'm immediately flooded with emails. So i can't watch this stuff until The west coast feed airs. So everything always get spoiled for me long in advance. And if like i'm telling you anything happens. I started getting these emails or these text messages. Would ever so. Friday night at seven. Pacific smackdown his over. And so i'm waiting. Like what am. I gonna get these emails about what happened with daniel bryan and roman reigns. I mean whether he wins the title or or he's got to retire forever or maybe they do some bs finished. Like gotta be getting these emails soon. I'm waiting i'm waiting. I'm looking around. I got no feedback. And so finally i just go up on the front page. And i read the report. And i get to the point where daniel bryan loses clean to roman reigns dale vanish from smackdown. Like i no feedback on this so either nobody cared or i don't know what the deal was but it was weird. So there he is he's gone and we'll see if he ends up on raw or he ends up on it. Exte- for awhile. I don't think it'll be there long-term based on how much money he's making but maybe they'll send him there for a month or two but that was the finish that was smackdown. Any thoughts mike. I can't believe you didn't answer my email. That i sent you about being excited. That richie grant was taken by the falcons in the second round of the draft. Ed in care. Leave it stunned by that. And apparently people didn't care about believing in the stipulation. Which i think is what it really comes down to is. You announce a stipulation like this which in the land of wwe usually doesn't mean a whole lot. Anyway it's daniel bryan like daniel bryan's career is gonna end. You know on a random friday on smackdown. That's not gonna happen is gonna pop up somewhere else. It's just a matter of where but it's just unfortunately on paper it should have done better in. Maybe the dvr numbers will be really good with it. You know they did. I guess maintained in some of their demos. So i guess that is a positive sign. I guess sort of trying to look for something. That's a positive in that. But i think that's just what it comes down to. His people aren't really that invested in that excited about what's going on. Yeah roman reigns daniel bryner guaranteed to have a good main event great. But as far as you know what comes next okay. It was a way to get this azzaro and rains but as far as this being a seminal moment in the career of daniel bryan unfortunately nobody believes that and and unfortunately that's where the stipulations of kind of atrophy too and wwe spurs in here on twitch chat says. I don't know if the draft had much to do with smackdown. Losing numbers of the weather is nice and people are outside again. My friend first off here. The weather is not nice but as far as the rest of the country. Let me tell you something about the weather. The weather has been nice for a while. Now it's may like in a lot of places. The weather's been good for a long time and like it doesn't matter if the weather is good or bad i mean normally how we see the change in the weather and the time zones with ron monday night when daylight savings time switches and the days get longer what we normally see is. The second hour does better than the first hour because people are out they hang out outside a little bit longer and then they come in and they watch the second hour of raw in whatever they turn off the shore. Whatever the case might be but with smackdown. It's like we never see any daylight savings time. Related weather patterns. It's always the first hour. Does this the second hour does almost exactly the same. It's like this all the time. So i do not believe for one second that all of a sudden on the night that dangle brain is fighting for the title or his career also got sunny all over the country. It's it's people. Were either more interested in the draft and of course people have noted here that like you know he could just watched the draft on your device. It's not even it's the second round of the draft. So i mean you could have been following along on your computer and still watchmaker. The people didn't even do that so what this is. It's not the weather. I'm sure it's the draft to a degree because it did good numbers but what it really is is. Nobody buys these stipulations. I mean they didn't even announce this like three or four weeks in advance. It was like they went off the air last week saying in one week on a random smackdown show daniel bryan is going to put his career on the line against the title. Nobody bought it. Not even the dumbest fan thought that daniel bryan might lose and never come back to smackdown. I mean as we mentioned for crying out loud sonya deville lost a loser leaves w e match. Now loser leaves smackdown. Loser leaves the company. She was gone for a month and then she just came back and granted. She hasn't wrestled yet but still she came back. She's back on the show again. So nobody was concerned about daniel bryan no and even if things were hot right now for it would still be tough to believe in the stipulation and things are not right now for them and nobody believed in it and these are kind of the results unfortunately of what happens so it just. Hey it's unfortunately it is across all the brands. As far as excitement level in bringing things up smack downs actually been in some ways at the top of that heap. But unfortunately they haven't jogged anybody's attention and really that the excuse of the it's nice outside that's like the reverse of the old paul bosch thing about you know. Well it's raining out or it's this or it's this it's like you know you actually was. It was sunny upside. That was okay will settle. Well it's sunny so no one came to show come to the show because they didn't like the show lineup and that's exactly right and they people weren't you know emotionally invested in fired up to see what happens and whether it's raining outside. Snowing sleet whatever if people want to see it bad enough. They're going to tune in and watch obvious. Oded here in the chat as well so think about this everybody. It wasn't loser. Leaves town or loser can never come back. But but w e on raw in actually wasn't even on raw. Charlotte was suspended indefinitely on social media after raw. Went off the air. She didn't even miss one show. No she was back the very next week so and that by the way happened right. After they made the announcement the daniel bryan was going to put his career on the line. Versus roman reigns so as historic. It just ain't gonna happen. You cannot definitely. It's killed their stipulations. Nobody cares and you can no longer in.

Live with bryan alvarez and mike beebe on the sports byline broadcasting network show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer alive via also wrestling observer dot com. So somebody here texted me and said interesting stat. Dave had on the weekend show fans watch approximately sixty percent of raw so just less than two hours. Yes and honestly. I did not find that interesting because who in the world watches oliver raw. Like i mean if you look at the hourly ups and downs. I means it seems clear to me that some people tune in early and then give up and some people tune in late and give up and there's probably a small number of people that actually watch all three hours straight through. I mean deaths what it seemed like in in these stats of back that up. But i'm i'm surprised. They watched sixty percent of raw. Quite frankly i would think the average viewer. I guess maybe about i would think fifty percent realize fifty and sixty doesn't seem like a lot but when i watched his show at about the hour and eighteen minute mark it's like clockwork and watching them like god. How long watching the show. And i look and it's almost always an hour and eighteen minutes in and i'm like oh my god i'm not even halfway through yet so anyway that's the stats and about what it is for me too because i watch it on. Dvr a. I've always watch it later. Usually about the same time that the west coast People are starting. That's when i'll tune in and it's like last week with special. Last week was by a half hour. I was ready to just shoot my tv and blow the whole thing. But it's usually the same thing where it's like god. This feels like has been going on forever and you look and it's like no you still have the entire other half of the show left and i think to myself i get a chance to fast forward through commercials so that at least expedites my process a little bit and i always think back to those people that start on the east coast at eight pm and i just can't fathom how they can sit there and watch all three hours of that show and the answer is they're not in much like you. I believe that that number is probably far less than it actually is with people that can intentionally intently watch and really be into all three hours of that program it to me. It's gotta be like even some ways it's almost like a. It's like a soccer match. Where at some point you know if you gotta go and get up or you're just bored you're going to get up and do something else. Leave it on in the background trauma volume up and then come back around to it and at least that you can say is far more riveting gives you every week all right so we do actually have matches for raw which we did not have yesterday. These are newly announced matches here and raw. Tag team champions. Aj an almost not only return but they defend their titles against the new day on raw and the women's titles will be on line. You know who the defending the women's titles against mike. I'm going to guess. Lana naomi or i'm sorry you right okay. Good ideas natty. Natty meet around smackdown right. So when they get the suit. Friday on smackdown. That's who they'll face because those are the only two teams they face well. Did you watch smackdown this week. I did well then. You should have seen them on their their on there every week. I know i'm just saying it's actually watch smackdown mike. I wish i didn't have to watch now. Read this front page report and just move on. So yeah she. Yeah before we move on before we move on because much like the case with the women's tag teams. Apparently there are only two tag teams on the men's roster on raw and it's the new day in its aj elma and why are jay maas facing the new day. Aj demoss should be in some ways the new new day. They are going to be the ones that everybody cheers. I know that the you know the the directors and we'll have to see what they they say in the the whatever the hell they call it in the thunderdome if they wanted to boo or cheer. Aj in almost. But i mean come on after wrestlemainia seriously in the past three weeks even if they wanted to get almost more training or whatever they were doing in that time. Why did you not build up another heel tag team or at least just slap one together for both of these teams go over. Because i don't want to continue on to see the series between these two teams. That's pretty much going to be based in all comedy anyway so listen to this does for. Wwe dot com. I actually had to read it twice. Because i couldn't believe this would actually said all right so this is from w. dot com. All right the wwe champion will a chance to prove those words right this monday night on raw as he collides with either mcintyre or stroman. Bobby lashley says he can take down through mechta or bronze roman. Anytime in a head-to-head battle the ever confident lashley is two weeks away from putting his title on the line against both men in a massive triple threat match backlash wrestlemainia. Backlash sunday may sixteenth. After stroman earned his way into the belt last week with a win over mcintyre which photo will clash with the all mighty two words and who will learn a major victory ahead of wrestlemainia. Backlash so yes. They are announcing that bobby. Lashley will face one of these two. But we don't know who. Why can't you tell us who is wrestling. Why is mystery. Can't we just say it's going to be bobby lashley versus braun. Strowman or bobby. Lashley vs drew mcintyre. Do they not know. Are they afraid that they announced one. Vince will show up and change it to the other. Why do we not know who facing tonight. Because we got to build the drama and our one man build it up right at some point. we're gonna have a match that gets thrown out. We'll go to commercial. They'll come back. There's going to be tag match in ring. This is all part of building the three hours. I guess i'm not saying it's a good idea. It's a very bad idea. And the bottom line is. I'm not really that interested in either because he's cleanly beaten. Both men said the daniel bryan had to you know. Come around in agree to that stipulation on smackdown because if i recall correctly if the champion of a brand makes you pass out in a submission move you get another title opportunity again. And unfortunately it's not going to happen for daniel bryan. It's happening drew mcintyre and we have braun strowman in the mix because he's big. That's about the only reason. Why hasn't he already lost. Both drew and and bobby lashley in the past. What two months before leading into wrestlemainia. So i'm not interested in any of this. I'm not interested in the banter between drew mcintyre. Bron your your pigheaded. This shut up. Just you know this. The whole thing is just everything. It's just two extra. Wwe on top of it. If all these guys were just beating the hell out of each other like drew shameless. I'd be far better with it. You have to have the banter. We have to have a way to build out three hours with these guys just makes everything less desirable to watch. Frankly couple of guys here saying well. They're doing this. So you tune in to find out who brother let me tell you something. That's what they're thinking. This never works. Okay we saw this. I mean it goes back further than this but the most obvious example is when they used to do. Those cyber sunday's or cyber tuesday shows and the deal was well. You're not gonna find out who the guy is going to face till you're live on the air you know. They don't have cyber sunday or cyber tuesday anymore. They did cyber tuesday it died and then they decided well you know maybe died because it was on tuesday. Let's put it on sunday. They moved to sunday. Guess what it died because people aren't going to tune in to find out who a person is going to face of three different options. They wanna know who that person is going to face now. If you say there's gonna be a mystery Debut on raw. It's going to be a mystery. La though surprises work but with comes down to you. We'll tell you they're going to wrestle or you have to tune in to find out which of these options are going to wrestle. It never draws and of course. I mean it's not going to draw any way they could tell us. It is not going to matter but it's still is funny that we've got a preview on the front page with them telling us we don't know who the world champion will be facing on raw tonight and no this other guy hold on a second. This vittori guy says it died because they fixed the vote. No they didn't fix the vote. No cyber sunday and cyber tuesday those were shoot though for shoot options and shoot voting there. There was no fixed voting. It's kind of like Trying to think of the other example they used to do. They used to do voting on the nine hundred hotlines where they were gonna do a match or whatever and they'd say call the hotline one nine hundred ninety nine ninety nine hundred and you vote and your vote will determine who does whatever so legally and this was not like you know what's right or wrong and promising this was legally. You could not do voting that you had to pay for where you'd had like call the one nine hundred number. You could not do that. Sort of voting in a rig the voting if people had to call in the hotline to make their vote you had to do legitimate real voting. It's the same thing when you buy a pay per view and then have people vote. Legally they could not have these people by a pay per view. Spend the money vote and then rig the voting that was all really you can read jericho's book about the time where i forget what match it was. But he didn't know totally went through the curtain who he was going to wrestle or whether he was going to lose the title and if i recall correctly he lost the title in that match. That was all legitimate. Well here's the thing. Even if the voting is not legitimate i mean it's pro wrestling you so the interest level isn't there for the show. I mean if the interest level was there for the concept of the show whether the voting was rigged or not people would do it anyway because they be excited to watch the show. So that one doesn't have to do with the other when it gets right down to it. It's the concept of the show. That has not worked for them whether they put it on. Taboo tuesday or cyber sunday doesn't matter and yes. Is this person noted like you could rig it in a certain way by saying here. Your three options falls count anywhere hardcore or extreme rules. Because they're all three jericho versus shelton. Benjamin for the title. I think jericho went in as champion. And i think shelton was voted in as the opponent and then they decided to the title change but anyway back with more everybody wrestling observer live. I'm ron bar all my life.

It's miraculous the way this works through. This is you know what i'm saying. By the way he got the update on the jericho story. So yes it was Chris jericho defending the title shelton. Benjamin was chosen as his opponent. Can you imagine that by the way of what this. This business have been back then. I don't even know who the other options were. But like nowadays way that they booked shelton. Benjamin nobody would have picked. That guy is as his opponent but they picked shelton and the ref is. Shelton is doing his entrance. Goes up to chris jericho and says put him over with his finnish. Jericho sitter the referee. What's his finnish. referee said. Now let me ask if you had to go over ask shelton. What is finish was and sheltered. In fact beat chris jericho with his finished. So is it the pater. Probably the painter. That's why i think it is. If i had to guess that i think is his His finish so there you go a right tuesday. In exte- we have some stuff in else. In bala returns we have got a street fight with shotsie number versus candice and indy hartwell. We have leon rough versus isaiah. Swerve scott falls. Count anywhere and to mostly champion.

And i'll actually at the time it's finished wasn't explorer was not so there you go have a couple of other notes in the ray dirig- show the former andrade. I guess it's still in driving. But he showed up and he challenged kenny omega. For the triple a mega title. He wants to face him at triple mania for that title and I guess kenny omega official responses. I'll get back to you. I'm busy so we'll see if we get that match. I i presume we will. I don't know why you said of the match without planning on doing it and that had been an idea for a while here so i think that's happening and also at the new japan show wrestling done taco night. One jesse white defeated hiroshi tani hockey to win the never opened way title and white cut a promo saying is the real belts collector and dared anybody who had a problem with that statement to come find him. I don't think kenny omega traveling to new japan right now. But that is an interesting guaranteed. That's why he's scared if there is a way to do it he should do it but he's scared of j. white. I don't blame him for being scared of j. White hiroshi. Takahashi was scared of jay was scared of his physique. You know forced on hoc- to get back into better shape still did not hussy. That's what he is terrible. A horrible person mike. Hey jay white is a wonderful person. J white the greatest professional wrestler in the world. He hates you just like everybody else. They didn't hate me. I would hate me who you know who may hate you as parts mouth. You're on the air. What's going on eight brandon from portsmouth and mike. I hit you bro. I did nothing to offend me yet. So you get to go but But i've learned to i went to say was smackdown. I'm thinking look at it. ruined brains. You know like. I'm thinking well who would be the one who ultimately be throwing rains and ultimately i just come up with the fact that they have not built anyone as late. Who i think could really do like biggie. Baby but he's like a never ending few with apollo and then i think about what they mean. Price might be cool. But he's a few. But the ms where he got pinned by the underwear. Don't just like got guys who have potential but there's no one who had they've done. Yeah who. I can dak care enough that that could be ruined so is the my thought goes back to the. Thanks for taking my call. Wanna thank you very much for the call right. So here's the deal with roman reigns in my opinion here so obviously a roman reigns is just running rough shot through this roster he beat edge and daniel bryan stack them like cord wood he. He retired daniel bryan from smackdown on friday. A i mean. Does anyone think sorrows going to be the guy that unseats roman reigns. I mean he's not so there's two things that we have is is options right here so number one. I think that we should be having a draft or a superstar shakeup or whatever you want whatever stupid term you wanna use for this. I think that we should have one of those coming up here shortly because what they often done chew a year they have like the weird midyear thing where it's like. Oh we'll do this and you can go over five times or whatever whatever goofy rule they have and then they have another draft. Which for some reason. They do in october. So they switch everybody and they say once you're switched like that's it the roster set and then they go immediately to survivor series. Where the rosser. All just mixed up. So it's like why would you do a draft right before survivor. Series number one. It doesn't make any sense and number two. It makes survivor series. Seem less special. Because we've just done a travel just mixed everybody up. So they should do the draft immediately after wrestlemainia or worse immediately after wrestlemania. Backlash if you do a draft. Drew mcintyre goes as smackdown and you can do drew mcintyre and roman reigns for the title over the summer. And do whatever you can do. Who do i think is going to unseat roman reigns. I don't know but i do know this. He is running roughshod through everybody on the roster. I think because his next major challenger whether it's survivor series time or next year's rumble or next year's wrestlemainia i think is going to be a non-regular whether that's listener again. God forbid we see. Another roman reigns brock. Leser or john. Cena coming back from hosting video game shows or whatever or if they can get him. And i think this is their ultimate match if they can get the guy is roman reigns versus the rock and i don't know if rockwood beat him and then put them over in a second match or what they would do. But i think that they're clearly positioning. Roman reigns is being bigger than anybody on the current roster because his big few that's gonna supposedly get him over as a mainstream. I would be against somebody who is not irregular on the roster. So in the meantime it's just gonna be all. We gotta drew mcintyre. We got a Sorrow maybe somebody else jumped ship. Whatever but. I think that that's what we're going to see in the short-term leading up to one of these johnson's rocks whoever facing him further down the road i get why they do the draft as a gimmick in the fall because it comes down to the fall season and tv and all that sorta stuff so in a way. I do understand that but at this point to even have separate rosters because if we were trading people coming at wrestlemainia like you made the brand look bad this happened. You've already exhausted. All your shots know there's no. There's no tie in as to why somebody should go somewhere. Because like keith. Lee should be traded to smackdown. I mean you could come up with a reason to do that. If you had a reason for this whole thing to be i mean other than fox's got one show. Usa's got the other wanted. So why why do we even have a brand split at this point it. None of it makes sense because none of it. None of nothing has anything to do with anything. You know like you mentioned survivor series. Everybody just faces off against each other. Anyway it doesn't take long before people just show up on each other's tv show anyway. There's no definitive head of each brand. That is looking out for the best interest of one brand over another. Maybe they go in that direction without him. Pearson sonia if you wanted to but they seem like they have them tied together. So there's like there's no reason at all at this point you should even have separate brands other than it's a tv show and we have these guys over here on this tv show and these people over here on this tv show. Just doesn't at this point. None of it really makes any sense and if they were interested in keeping up with it and making it something viable that people can be interested in. Okay but after all of these years much like when it comes to stipulations. I have no faith that that's going to happen. Even if they did snap their fingers today. And okay pierce. Heads are all sonya had smackdown. We're going to have a draft and this is going to happen in this time. We're serious no you're not we'll have. This thing has turned out every time. It's become a mess and at this point it's just completely into mud. Spurs an ear doesn't want to get rid of the brand split because they say without a brand will see the same ten people two times a week. Well you may do to laziness. But here's the the well. i mean. We see the same people every week. I mean he saying that we would see the same matches every week on raw and then they would do the same match on smackdown and then continued doing that on raw. A bunch of would never be used. You may be right because of of unity laziness but let me tell you the easy way to do this if i was called tomorrow and they said vinson gone. We got someone competent in their. How should we do this. I would say well get rid of the blue. You get rid of the brand split okay. Now once the brand split no longer officially exists what you can do is internally you do a brand split okay and you say that these people are the people going to be working smackdown programs. These are the people who are gonna be doing. Rob programs either. Not tell us to the fans this internal and then the rob booking crew. Has these people that they work with. And the smackdown booking crew has these people that they work with however it is not set in stone. So if you're doing a raw show and you've got the same matches over and over again because of a brand split that you officially created for yourself you no longer have that so if we don't we don't see aj and almost versus the new day for the fiftieth time so one day the dirty dog show up on raw and you start a program there and then you internally maybe move a team over to smackdown or whatever. But this way you've got separate brands with separate booking cruise but you're not locked into it so you don't fall into this trap of we only have two teams on this show. We have three teams on this show and we keep seeing the same stupid matches over and over again. You have options at that point bro. You made it all the way to difficult and unfortunately this is how far we all. I made it simple. This is how far we are away from pro wrestling. Because go to my timeline later. If you're listening live right now after the show is over go to mid. Atlantic pod admin atlantic pot on twitter. And if not listening live today is on this day. Jcp one thousand nine hundred six. Yesterday was one thousand nine hundred. Eighty seven where there are three major shows worldwide wrestling. Nwa pro wrestling in world championship wrestling grand. Total of four hours of. I think i run programming at that point and they also had other hours on. Wcbs on sunday morning saturday. Morning things like that. Zillion one people on the roster zillion championship belts. Everybody was able to have a purpose because everybody had a purpose and they had intertwining storylines because they worked on those things and you had squash matches they did. Do squash matches brian. But you know what you have so many people on the roster right now you can do squash matches. You can do competitive squash matches. You could do a lot but you gotta wanna do a lot. You got to plan ahead. You can't just tear everything up at the last minute and you have to give everybody a reason for being give the fans a reason to believe in them. It's just that's what you should be doing anyway. And they're not doing that so they can come up with every other reason of why it won't work very simply is because they're not making it work is that they're going to go back to doing squash match as you tweet by. Bottom line is brian. You have a zillion when people on the roster you have a bunch of tv time to fill and how you're not gonna get if it didn't happen then it doesn't have to happen now you don't have to have the same matches over and over again. It's a lack of creativity period and it's a lack of lack of creativity but they also have limited rosters because they've split these two brands so they're stuck with the people on each brand like open up. Everything at center should have the entire roster available for raw in the entire roster available for smackdown back in a moment observer live.

Give me my bathroom then. You better fix fixing coffee. Now listen to this day. The encyclopedia starts right out saying they and scandinavian discover of america. One of these to says it's merely a legendary folk tale. Not one even suggest that he didn't get to america right here in the year. Nine nine nine. They sailed from greenland where his father. Eric the red had established the first settlement. He sailed to norway to the court of king. Old trig vison. The king commission vaccine to proclaim christianity in greenland on his way back to greenland lay and was blown off course and arrived at newlands of which he had no previous knowledge and which he called finland here he found self sown wheat and vines samples of which he took back to his father's home greenland authorities differ about the exact location of bannon. But it seems probable that erickson visited that seven part of what is now nova scotia authorities. Who thought the vikings landed some connecticut. They've found mooring stones or something in the ruins of an old fort. There doesn't say anything about that here but heard about that too and then there's no room stone. They found years going. Minnesota reminds me. Have no kidding sitting around in the middle of the night reading reference votes and drinking coffee. I remember the night. I was cramming for some exam. You know there were three of us you and unveil mercer and checkups. I stayed up with us making coffee and sandwiches and firing question. Then were also scared. You're gonna flunk you hadn't stayed up all night and helped us cram for the test studied each day. You wouldn't have had to cram the last minute young man look. I was busy. I had enough on my mind. Just trying to keep you away from that. Little pip squeak. You thought it was so gun cute. Aw oh yes. That was his name. Yes j. j. j. something all the was he was jealous of him. Clean jealous look. I got away from him. Denying you know why he was too short. I got tired of wearing flat heeled shoes. So i wouldn't tell her over and volvo is that We had fun back in college. And we honey. A spun looking up all reference material. Get it takes us back. Doesn't it you ask them and see the principal. The school the damn certain to be armed with information makes me so mad. Every time i think of a teacher marking betsy wrong and then look here this you have got to face. The teacher was right when she said that. If she asks who discovered america she cannot mark twenty-three other pupils wrong if they answer column. I know that but betsy is. Answer wasn't wrong either. It says right here in the encyclopedia. Mavericks scandinavian discover of america. Nearly five hundred years before columbus for him much too upset about it it. Because you're the one. Who told betsy the story of late barracks and i and i don't like the fact that bet the as a result now things we don't know we're talking about. We have to prove that we do not. I want the school to do is acknowledge it believe me when i talked to the principal going to talk to the principal nine. Don't get mad. Don't get mad but you are not always very diplomatic about these things. Walk out for example. Virginia dabizas every historian recognizes that. She was the first white child born in america. Now you suddenly read. What is probably very questionable account of some viking baby and want to challenge. Questionable is right here. In the encyclopedia. Urban kaas ethnic landed in america in ten of three and his son was born. He had less having to be handled calmly and with dignity. So let me do it. I'm not nearly as upset about is you and i so i can discuss it with a more detached point of view. All right dan. You talk to the pentagon. Yeah winning my while. My wife and i both realized very trivial point while we regret even making a small issue of it. Tall mr piper. I wish more parents would come and see me when they feel. It has been some misunderstanding. However turn you out as my wife said all. We really as the school to acknowledge the fact that betsy was not wrong when she answered. Leave barry soon discovered america. I mean an idea now. I'm afraid we've gotten into another one is understanding. I didn't mean that is odd. Should be mocked right. Oh but you're just a degree. in misleading. The we had a basis for complain cost. But i only agreed that betsy and her classmates should be told the complete story of light ericsson which is a very interesting. One is hardly based on historical fact. Indeed all we know of like ericsson is based on the old viking handed down through the generations song in store. Do i understand that. The school does not acknowledge. The actual existence of leif ericson. I did not say that. Just a pipe but i will say this as principal of this school i own acknowledged one correct answer to the question who discovered america. Surely miss the paper. You don't expect me to deny the existence and refused the discoveries of christopher columbus. I expect to school. I am sending my child who to recognize certain historical facts such as the fact that the white child born in america was not virginia. Dare but the son of thornton safety or doesn't doesn't recognize that back either. I don't even know what you're talking. I am talking of orphan. Carl's heff name as whiting you. Even he. he was here before columbus and he established a settlement in ten old four. Now all i ask. Is that the the the acknowledge nali used. His democ knowledge is only christopher columbus. Mr paper as the discovery of america. I would appreciate it if you would call my daughter to the office miss whiting. I am taking her out of school Darling stop crying. Goethe's going to any school mine. Lee refuses to recognize certain facts. You can't keep betsy out of school for heaven's sakes all right all right. We'll send it to a private schools. Private school one knitted least recognize arrive at school. I don't be ridiculous when we get money to send betsy to private school. And what private school. I don't wanna go to any other school. I wanna go to where my friends are going to go. Just where i've been going of course. Of course you run upstairs and bad your face in cold water. Honey go on. Let me talk to daddy. Run along swim us. Not stop wearing. Go big your face dear and call now. What in the world happened you were. The one was going to see the principal instead of me. Because you we're going to be calm and dignified now. You arrive home in a rage having taken taken betsy out of school l. I know i know i got. I got mad. All i asked was that the school acknowledged that vets. He's answer was right. That's all acknowledged. The leif erickson really discovered. America calmed down. Even though credit is given to the columbus. Yes yes. I know but i mean i got to thinking school and the teachers and the principal. I mean they do have a position to maintain you know well anyhow honey. We can't take betsy out of school. I have taken around. Look i know. I was upset but i never met anything drastic as this. Even you said we shouldn't make not big on issue of it. Made an issue of a now even if we involve the board of education. Betsy is not going back to school until paper is remarked and her answer is acknowledged to be correct that poor kid her classmates laughing at it. Because you wrote down leif eriksson. Betsy doesn't care about it anymore. Children forget and if we keep her out of school she'd missed so much we'd have to get a tutor. I mean really. We just anything like this.

It's aria an conan and there's some craziness out there you have a story about liberals who despite being vaccinated refused to take off their masks because they don't want to be perceived as conservatives. They've even got the go-ahead. We talked about this last week. The okay that they can not wear their masks while outside. Who and and and they still won't which is why why. Why does biden still wear his mask. One he's walking around outside even cd's come out says you're allowed to these days because they have to. Virtue signal to the masses is the same reason to masks came into play once. A single mass became mandatory How did they how do they show their membership. And the church of okc if they're just doing what everyone else is doing well in this. We have speculated on this for basically all of it and This it might actually have been proven according to a columnist who works in. Dc the stigma of the red maga- hat has given way to the mask free face as a way to recognize concerned citizens and according to deceased the last thing left leaning americans one is to be mistaken for as being a person on the right. And why is that is it. Because they've so demonized the right and attacked the right that they're scared that the mob will attack them a little projection. Is it perhaps that they're afraid. Knowing what they themselves have done to conservatives i when they see them out in the streets and they rip off their hats and rip off their signs and flags or whatever may that be the reason that liberals are scared to death of being considered conservatives is because of how liberals treats conservatives is why. I've always said i as a libertarian. As a as a free market anarchist. I don't i don't can i don't care much for the republicans. Don't care much for the for the democrats and the and and yet i i am not fearful. I am not wary to have a a conversation with the republican about things. But things anything i am however concerned for my own welfare for my well being for my house from for the for my windshield when i have any kind of debate with democrat with liberal with progressive or regressive. Really because i i i i don't know where it's gonna lead. I don't know if i'm going to get spat on. I don't know if i'm going to get punched in the face. I am construed as a nazi because you know the liberals to punch nazis as their thing. Well they like to say nazis but most of them don't actually have the courage to punch a person no are. They're week soy boys. They're they're low testosterone soy boys and Know many of them don't but some of them Sort of them will little grant little old liberal. Grandma's might slap in the face because they are they based because they lean on emotion on feelings. I that's what that's their guiding stone. That's how they work So i am very concerned when i have conversations with liberals because i don't know where it will go a conservative republican conservative. I'm like yeah you know. This is how i in. Taxation is theft you know. Let's let's bring our troops home Any of these types of things that they are very important to them that military being one of them I know that. I can have conversation with them. And not worry about getting punched. I guess this is where my trance privileged comes in. Because i i'm not worried about being vandalized progressives or conservatives in general. I would speculate that. The people who wrote a certain homophobic expletive on my car as much my car top and one of my tires were probably conservative and probably not a liberal. So i guess. I'm more likely i would speculate to be targeted by a conservative. But even then that's that's exceedingly rare four thousand votes. What was it. Six thousand votes from conservatives is about seven thousand. I think he did pretty good. But yeah i've had i've worked with. I worked with a bunch of liberals some of conservatives and you can tell by the way a business in this article is going to really highlight that all the liberals that i work with where their masks all ways all of the conservatives one voted for trump. I don't know how the other one voted. Never wear the mask and in the one girl doesn't even think that this is real she i actually. I was shocked media the other week. And i we're talking about it and we were talking about getting the vaccine and whatnot. It's the i'm not getting. I don't think this is real. I was like what. Because she's you know i i never. I never thought that i would hear that. From from her. Last week my supervisory officer stopped by. It was one of the few occasions the last month and a half that actually had to just sit down and just relax and play the guitar. Three minutes into that. My supervisor officer my parole officer essentially is not gonna span so close to having some downtime all messed up. i don't remember. She wore a mask or not. I don't think she did all right but anyway she came in. And i wanna know how things were going to say. Well you know. I had covert for bit. Otherwise fine she asked. Are you going to get vaccinated. Why i just had perfectly fine. I don't see any point in getting vaccinated at as it. That's the other one that just bedrose blows my mind. Not only are the vaccinated continuing wear their masks but they're also getting vaccinated had it. I don't had it why that's the one not let unless it's a virtual signal virtue signal unless it's a it's a it's a signal what they can to to to separate themselves from their opponents from the other tribe. How do you prove that unless you have your stupid freedom. Pass vaccine papers say put that stupid facebook pre frame around their profile. Wallah say they've got their vaccine. That'd be done with it but there's no reason to actually go and get the vaccine if you've already had the rono according to germ theory. Yeah and the argument is oh well you could get it again. Sure i could get it again. And i'll be just fine again I don't see any reason any benefit whatsoever to having them inject these chemicals into me for disease that i've had and recovered from with no complications and with only minor symptoms in the first place other than not being able to taste or smell still to this day there. That's wild. Yeah and it's very annoying man as wild it comes and goes you know. I was able to something that i ate last week and i was able to smell my fabric softener earlier today but that's pretty much it can't smell or taste. Anything else in is so bizarre man. 'cause my cats eat wet food and everyone knows how pungent cat wet cat. Food is but i opened it up. I don't smell anything. That is bizarre. We were talking with someone about that here before the show and it's just insane. How complete and total. The loss of taste and smell are that said. That was the only real issue. I had from covid nineteen other than being really sore and tired for a day after which i was one hundred percent fine again. We're out with what we were also talking about the how this all happened. Basically we our team our circle. Inner circle have been talking our employees. We've been working right on through this whole nonsense for more than a year. Viant the more than a year no problems. Most of us have been more social than ever a. Yes no masks very knowing social you doing europe your thing. You you work to this entire. Yes planned emma. I believe i believe most in this in this house half and then all of a sudden everyone gets it. According to the late according to the latest count nine people who are all connected. Got it and i'm thinking on the way here affiliated with free talk live in some way correct and i'm like well what the hell happened and the only thing i can think is right before it happened about ten days two weeks before it happened this this really two weeks that far away. I'm sorry no no. Actually it was about a week. I think before it before people started having symptoms about a weekend but what had happened for a week before this entire house was was like an ant colony with fed boys alphabet heads in this house walking around rummaging around touching everything. Doing who who knows what because no one was allowed near. I mean it wasn't just this house either. It was the bitcoin embassy was my house. It was Several other houses. Correct so i mean who knows who knows what happened. Yeah but you know maybe maybe the next story next article we cover will. We'll actually talk about what may be. Vaccinated people can do to unvaccinated people still likeliest explanation as michael hampton who is affiliated with the show and it was a cancer patient regularly going in and out of hospital. You're gonna tested positive. And then a few days later after spending time here in the studio with both mark and the captain and myself all three of us were sick whereupon one of us has always here at some point during the show right. we relate it to co-hosts unknowingly.

Then there were mask mandates and then liberals had asked themselves how can i make sure that random people who see me know how woke and liberal and progressive. I am and they decided that the dome ask was the way to go. But now mandates are lifting and a single mask is once again enough to display their membership in the progressive church and they are terrified. It would seem that not displaying. This membership would make them look conservatives in. I think says a lot about how they treat conservatives if they're worried about how their peers will treat them if they're perceived as conservatives. They should reflect on how they themselves have treated conservative. Absolutely kicked out of the tribe which hunted columnist. Dc to dc latest overheard of the week. I guess something she. A column of hers was of two women. Walking down the street in dc shortly after the release of the new cdc guidelines the women in their twenties debated the merits of the guidelines not on health grounds but on what people might think if they were to see their unmasked faces quote. One of the girls said it. So i don't have to wear a mask outside but i really don't want people to think i'm a republican. The woman was overheard to say. Look i don't want people to think. I'm a republican either. But not enough to go out of my way but it's because i don't treat republicans like like they're human garbage so i don't care if other people perceive me as a republican because i don't expect to be treated as human garbage. You get that card though. I mean no one's going to well you know. What have you heard. The news about caitlin jenner. I have. I want to talk about that at some point because i really wish. Caitlyn jenner with f. Off already well. I mean she's i guess. She's a republican. I didn't know that about hers. she is a disgusting human being but she's also been been praised for for so many years now From the left for coming out in in you know being strong now all of a sudden she's been thrown right off the boat she is and now she's getting trampled as we speak some some liberals some people on the left. You know praised. Her others were like okay. Yeah i suppose it took courage for you. You know being in a public figure in the national eye or whatever to to come out and transition. I suppose i took some courage. But it's not doing anything to help the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands wherever the hell meany there are out there who don't have the support from the media and that's the reality of the situation. Caitlyn jenner. she might. She was worried about getting some flat criminal conservatives republicans or whatever but there was never any possibility that msnbc or pink news or the bbc or any of these other major news sites. Even fox news would attack her for transitioning. She was safe as a person could be to pursue that transition and a lot of trans people. A lot of liberal people recognize that at the time that hey she's completely protected. She's protected from all forms of criticism. Here but now. She's a republican so now she isn't. It doesn't really matter that she's you know had any Status before before what. she said. she didn't have a whole lot of status though as my point not not. I'm not on the left. And i don't know anyone who calls themselves a leftist. Who actually likes caitlin jenner. The vast majority of them disliked for the same reason i do. She wants to be the rosa parks of the trans movement and yet she will only sit on the buses where she knows. The driver will let her choose her own seat. She won't sit on. She won't risk it. If there's any chance to drive will go. Oh no no you. You have to sit in the back. She picks a different bus. Obviously she's gotten on the bus that she just got thrown off of so whether she backtracks liberal bus. That's my entire point. Okay i gotcha liberals never cared for she. She's not the hero of the trans movement that she wants to be all news to me. I don't i don't know any liberals except the ones i work with. And i stay away from them. I know some. And i don't know any who have any respect or like for caitlyn jenner. She's barely better than jk. Rowling at this point. Back to dc girl. we've given the mask deceased. Excuse me We give them the mass significance that it hasn't earned and that goes far beyond its usefulness despite new cdc guidance says vaccinated can spend time outdoors. Unmasked is worried. Spend time outdoors unmasked. If they're alone there alone right. I feel like that. Caveat is important because it shows how stupid the guidance really is. You didn't know that already and yeah. Yeah it's a given if. I'm spinning out if i'm spending time outside alone. There is absolutely no reason to wear a mask. Yeah i thought that was always the guidance from the The powers that be but the the fact that they have to spell it out To me hey. If you're in your house alone it's okay to take your mask off from me. That whole that this whole new guidance that has just dropped a was just the way to alleviate some of the concerns from the vaccinated who thought they could stop wearing their mask and go visit their elderly grandad in in prison to prison nursing home or go back to work in. Just go back to normal. Except that's not the guidance that's not that's not what they were to understand after the afterwards they're like no doubt cheese like no still mashed up still social distance. No more no more grandparents you are when you do you have to. You have to hug him through a plastic bag. And i think that this new guidance was alight to alleviate some of Some of the some of the anger and rightfully so by the way liberals you should be angry that they keep back. Flap dot flop in and and Changing their guidance every other week and go back to normal and i recognize that things will only go back to normal when people stop complying. Absolutely there was an article today in our union leader about a woman who is upset that she can't visit her father who is in a nursing home and he can't because the nursing home let her correct he still at this point a one once a week visitation or something and i'm sorry he can't leave and go anywhere and do anything even though he's vaccinated he can't go to the bar. You can't do anything he can't. He has to stay in. He has remained masked up in the building at all times and the daughter is little a little upset about this. I can understand why. And she's out there With her billboards small group of people. Petitioning sununu our governor to to release the old people from the nursing homes. And it's just what you said though why. Why don't you just go get your dad. Why didn't your dad. Just leave when he wants to leave if he really wants to go for a walker go to the bar. Are you even dealing with why. Why are you petitioning this piece of crap governor and asking his permission like a like an obedient little little sheep. Why don't you just go. Presumably her father has nowhere else to go but the nursing home. I mean nowhere to stay but the nurses this i. I didn't get that far into the article. That might be exactly why you know. She can't just take them back to the house with her she. Room or whatever. I don't know that that's true It it might be just so much more convenient To nursing homes aren't all that bad. Some pretty nice. It's and as you know if you're especially if you're a you're lonely only it's you know what do you what else are you gonna do. You just gotta go somewhere and get old and die. I mean it's the way it works. Pick that works out to pasture. That's the way that's the way i would rather go out in the pasture. I have blonde going.

I'm a bit tired. it's been a really long day. Most of my day has been spent either working here at the studio where i installed a thing so that hopefully we're mark does his you know his marquee thing where he starts yelling and screaming and babbling incoherently as he tends to do it won't calls a bunch of clipping and stuff like that so i'm not. I'm not aware of this. This is something how had explain yourself. You've you've done the show with mark right. He can get a little. He i blow. Yeah but we've never. I'm not ian. He's he has no reason to scream at me. He does it at random is just sort of your not you either. He likes the to. Because you are both of you guys. Un troll mark incessantly. You get under his skin. Even when we're not on the show like a splitter he will do it he also does it when he starts renting about the government. So i i get your point. Things they get under his skin calls him to become so he gets loud always. So he's he's a he's clipping out. Yes so what is a what. How does this new device work. That is will. It's a compressor. We have one. Here on these microphones. But we didn't have one. He doesn't have one in his studio. So the signal feet has now passing through a compressor here before it goes to hardware or software hardware neat. It's pretty cool. So i'm taking it. He was yelling at the other night or something. And this is what is brought to say yelling at me per se but he was doing his mark thing where he gets on a rant and he starts yelling and screaming and it created a lot of clipping saami they're just issues and then i ended up spending an hour on the phone with one attorney than forty five minutes on the phone with another attorney and i got to talk to both attorneys for about forty five minutes and then the first attorney again for about forty five minutes so just all day long today. Been talking to attorneys. And that's because. I don't know if you've heard but there's a federal. The federal united states government has decided to indict me and to other hosts a freetalklive. One of whom is an freeman. Who built this show. You can check out the crypto six dot com to learn more or to donate to the legal defense fund because it's all related to crypto currency. There was obviously no crime committed here but that's not going to stop the federal government from essentially from competing with them doing as much damage as they can to make an example for competing with them. This is exactly what is going down. I can't comment on that. But there is information at the crypto. Six dot com. If you wanna check it out or if you want to donate to the legal defense fund because one attorney two hundred and fifty thousand dollars retainer another one saying one hundred thousand and it says these are very big numbers that you know we. You might think we had access to those kinds of funds. What really we don't decrypt. Oh six dot com is the place to to learn more about all of that but let's go to the phones. We've got dan calling from california dan. You're on free. Talk live low. Good afternoon. I am calling from california and i let me throw a little defense for mark because he is my favorite hosts and sometimes he does yell but we love that about mark. Oh for sure hope you. It's not a negative thing. I mean it's just what mark is expected to do and he does it. Well it makes good radio. Yes but we're both over fifty and i'm facebook friends him and i just love the man so anyway that said i called because he also talking about mass and i consider myself dick conservative. Small government conservative. But i don't understand the critiques about math. They weren't there ten years ago. I've been conservative. Republican for a long time and i don't remember going into. The doctor's offices are dinners offices and people having a problem with mass before. And if i don't understand the political angle of this all. I don't understand why people complain about them so much. I've fallen asleep with mine on. I mean if i fuck. I i've had to wear gas masks in the military you know from cs gas and that kind of things in those uncomfortable but you know this little mask on my face feels like i'm wearing a sock and on a cold. It keeps my face warm. So i didn't like it a little more now. I would never use the power of government to tell you you should have to wear one. I'm against that completely in your private property. You should be able to decide whether someone wears a mask or not. But i understand again if i'm in my talk property and i say everyone has to wear a mask or everyone has to wear red shoes. I don't understand that. The small government conservative. Why we would have a problem with that but you raise the number points so let me start at the first one. Since all of this started my position is and has been that. I'm not against people choosing to wear masks if that's what they want to do or even having mask mandates on their private property if that's what they want to do my issue is and has always been with the mask mandates with the government telling me what i can't wear what i can and can't reveal to people that i can't smile at them that i can't communicate non verbally with people. That's been my biggest issue with this aside. From the fact that it turns your average gestation work at your average fast food worker your average starbucks barista into a law enforcement agent that is literally fascism to have just random employees out there enforcing the laws on behalf of the state. That's actual literal text book. Fascism everyone is in law enforcement because of these mask mandates and that's a major issue. We ask the question if you found out that you had transmitted corona virus someone you could prove it. It was you that did give that. Would you be willing to pay for that person's medical Anything that could surmise from that from that.

Lost Tracks of IndyCar: Trenton Speedway

"Uh-huh welcome to another episode of Tain Parlay. Welcome to another lost track edition of in Parlay. My name is host. Mike Jokam joining me to you. Talk a trend speedway today and I'm sure he'll be back to talk. Some of these other trucks here is frank. Santa Rosa Frank. Thanks for joining me tonight in Mike any appreciate that the offer. Great to have you on for those who I don't know frank has a great motor sports. podcast called drafting circuits You you may have heard me on there some point earlier this year last year but Today were were here to talk. Trenton speedway which is or it used to be about ten miles from where I grew up. Right in Trenton. New Jersey. So Frank Where do we start when we talk about trends speedway well Trenton? speedway actually one of the oldest tracks On the planet. You know the oldest old tracks A lot of your early Oval Oval tracks in the United States began horse racing facilities. Now Trenton just a seventeen year Trenton. If you're not familiar with New Jersey trend is in central roll West New Jersey. It's about oh about half an hour from Philadelphia a little over an hour from New York City. So it's between it's a big population. Centers and New Jersey has a large population of its own with Trenton being Pretty well populated city as the capital of New Jersey The track was put together in nineteen hundred again for basically for horse racing but in that same year they built the tracks they did have their first auto arrays which was more of a kind of a curiosity The automobile was still very new. A lot of people had never seen one in their life. So this was more of like you know. Get your first look at the amazing new horseless carriage You know But but that was the first Motor Motor sports event at Trenton in nineteen hundred but racy really Kinda didn't catch on there till about Oh nineteen twelve. They use it for a horse racing. They they had a couple of races here and there Between Nineteen O five nights. You know eight but in nineteen twelve. They started hosting auto racing regularly now. Trenton is part of the New Jersey State. fairgrounds and auto racing at the State Fair. All across the country became pretty much the rage in the in the early Nineteen tents and whatnot so They they they continued. Take on racing. The the A half mile dirt oval They ended up building grandstands there And and and raced you know during the state fair and then on occasional weekends here and they're true the year until nineteen forty one when with World War Two Auto racing issue was bad across the United States as you know. Every manufacturer was Raila whatever's towards the war effort so Like like every other track in the NATA saved they decided dormant until nineteen forty six and they reopened the track and they they expanded the half Mile Oval to a one mile oval. Now the interesting thing they did here was they. Actually they move the track a little bit. They changed the profile. Attract back to get that one mile oval in there but they didn't move the grand stance Because there is a concrete foundation under the grandstands it was pretty easy to move the tracks little heart and move the grants and so you had this really odd viewing angle in the turn one to two area Where were you? Were the spectators rather far from the track. And the you know the the the profile of the new track didn't match the profile of the all tracks but the grandstand mashed profile. The old track. That was not fair But folks got used to it and as racing kind of You know picked up there in nineteen forty. Nine was the first time we saw the indy cars which were called the championship. Cars then raced on the dirt there. didn't come back They were you know transition more mortar pavement but there were a lot of modified races and run which brown kind of things But what they in nineteen fifty seven. I believe they went ahead and pave the track and which brought the champ cars cars back For good and the champ cars raced at least twice a year in some years three times a year all the way until the track closed in nineteen eighty the last races there were nineteen. Seventy nine In that in that stretch of having the champ cars we you know we saw a lot of great races and again sometimes you know two times a year sometimes three times a year. But the the master of Trenton was a young man named. Aj foy. And I know that some of you folks that enjoying the corporation have heard of him But he had never heard of him. Yeah so but yeah. But he he was a king of Trenton. And then this other young fellow who didn't live that far away was the prison tread. Mario Andretti also WANNA. I believe Mario won in seven races of Trenton. Major one twelve so those guys really had figured out So we continued on the pay. One Mile will For Uh for a decade until they want to expand this thing to what you call superspeedway latch which was mile and a half. Now all the confines of the real estate there's a housing development over on the other side of the track so they couldn't just Kinda you know just expand the thing in a straight line so they essentially bent the track. Give it this kidney bean shaped so. There's a dogleg on the back straps. It's not a Dogleg. In the traditional sense Dogleg is inverted. So you've got an oval with a pronounced right turn. That was made it a little interesting for guys to set up but the guys who had figured out the old track figured out the new track again. We're talking Mario and we're talking AJ So Yeah that that track continued on until the demise by then a little bit. But I don't want to do all the talking talking. I want to see what kind of things you throw at me yet. No it's funny you mentioned the For lack of a better term here the kidney he being shaved Started in nineteen sixty nine that you were just talking about sixty which appeared in that indy. Five hundred hundred Historical Ish video game that was on the original xbox a number of years ago it was considered pretty dangerous. If I'm not mistaken correct for the guys who didn't figure it out. Well the thing was excuse me all right was dangerous then Training was no more or less dangerous than other tracks. As a matter of fact there's only three deaths for the INDYCAR guys That have been And then one is a very interesting story. Jimmie reese Either nineteen fifty eight that was prior to the kidney. Bean shaped but Jimmie reese had been involved in an accident earlier that year at the Indianapolis Motor speedway the accident. That took the life of Pat O'Connor Now another driver name Eh Eh. Deletion was widely blamed for this accident. However Jimmie reese fail to little at fault and when it came came down to it when when his car was slipping away with in front of him he kinda brakes really hard which collected some guy behind him Now when Dan Rea said his accident Trenton when his car was getting way he he didn't break or slow he kinda kept his foot in it which which watched him over the fence and cost him his life now. Some folks say that he was you know had learned that lesson. I didn't want to didn't want to collect other guys behind. But we'll never be able to ask him because he lost his life crash. But that's kind of kind of odd little undertone story there But but as far as you know was was the kidney bean shaped dangerous more dangerous than than other tracks when it comes to. I mean sure there were some guys who couldn't figure it out But I mean if you look at if you look at the stats look at the speeds at Trenton You know not not a lot of guys I mean when you compare to place like Langhorn which would chew up guys. Spit them out. Or even if you compare it to the Indianapolis speedway which would lose guys is Left and right and sometimes you know two and three guys in the same race meeting Trends no more dangerous than anywhere else but it was just it was interesting it was different. It was hard to set your car up for. 'cause this is. This isn't a time where the guys were running primarily ovals all the time so they put a lot of stagger a lot of staggering at tires to make turn left really well but the trend had a you know it wasn't it wasn't just a little writer and it was. It was a straight up right. Turn in the middle of that back extra away. So the the old video and pictures I've been able to find are are pretty remarkable You touched on. Aj Foyer. And I'm looking at the winners list. Here one two three four five times in a row between night April nineteen sixty three in July nineteenth of nineteen sixty four at Trenton and For those listening posts these pictures on our social media after the episode is released My great grandfather got some a picture of Eddie Sachs in a victory lane in nineteen or the early nineteen sixties I have a extra from nineteen sixty. Do Three in victory lanes miracle photos Trenton. And yes we will definitely talk Langhorne in the upcoming weeks as the other Even more local tracks To to me here so you know talking. More about Trenton. In addition to the Kidney Bean one of the turns from Pocono was modeled after Trenton. If I'm not mistaken correct. SS correctly the terms of token are modeled after Milwaukee Indianapolis and try and turn one is trending turn to is Indianapolis and Turn Street. Is Milwaukee But it's interesting that you bring up Pocono because Pocono was actually poconos built in nineteen seventy one But Tokyo title had a little bit to do with The demise of Trenton Based on the yeah there about an hour apart Trenton actually did host NASCAR They the only house in the May Times I believe I don't number one. They didn't draw crowd Folks preferred the oil cars to these stock cars. Stock cars really didn't didn't catch on nationwide until much later but once Pocono was up and running The NASCAR guys which even cup series now is called all the grand national series then decided to to move their date that they had reserved for Trenton to Pocono The last Nascar Qarase was in nineteen seventy two at Trenton and in nineteen seventy four. They debuted focused on. They've been having Quite good success at Pocono ever since they did the NASCAR'S I was gonNA call them the grand nationals did the NASCAR's have any different struggle with the kidney. Bean tape than the indy. Cars did very similar struggle. Getting you guys. That are running primarily all ovals you know other than the occasional Asian trip to riverside which where they set up a car for a road course. But you I mean here you are you want to set up for an will because you know seventy five percent of the track rackets oval. It's just other than that one. Turn in there so the struggles were similar with the setup so But but speaking of the danger of track I wanted to before we got not too far off the subject of the danger of drying. I wanted to bring up a guy name Tommy Thompson now. Does that name ring a bell to you at all. Only because I see his name on the front of my computer screen right now looking at Trenton speedway facts but to be honest with you outside of that no it does not table so interestingly enough. Here's a guy who was it was Kinda lost to racing He was an African American driver and he was a very talented young man. He was running. And the USAK mini indy series. which is the precursor to Any lights But it was really closer to former former supervisor back then it was nineteen seventy eight Where Tommy had a pretty promising career he he was running wheels also running in the Askar? Oh but he's he lost his life at Trenton in nineteen seventy eight MVP You know the In the mini indy. Erase the the the opening act. That's the word I'm looking for the opening act for the for the big Usak race That was won by Mario Mario the next day but but here's a guy who could have realistically be Willy t ribbs to the the bachelor the first african-american qualify for the five hundred. Because this guy was pretty good. He was working on a shoestring budget but he had some had some decent backers So that that was a little tragic in the what could have been a kind of scenario. They're coming out of Trenton yet. Now that you talk about him I definitely have heard my. Hi Dad. Talk about him in the past Real quick not necessarily a Trenton question. But because you brought it up How did the mini indy? Cars differ from the Super Vee cars of for Franken case. You didn't listen or any of our listeners. Forgot back in May we talk to now former. NHL Goalie Mike McKenna. Whose Dad was as Subaru driver? Back in the sixties seventies. I'm sorry Michael has to check with you on when when he raced. If I'm not mistaken the the mini indy and actually foremost super. Vee were. We're pretty much the same formula. It's just there were sanctioned by different Wadis there you have it Usak Mini Indy. But it was essentially the same thing as a formula Super Vee and there are a lot of really good any car racers who came up through super vague Michael Andretti Bill Elsa Rick mears his. Name's like that And the I think they just read the Usak once you sang by Usak. We're called mini the than the SEC had their formula Super Vee and then they later had gotten Robert Bosch Company to sponsor the series in the sea When Cart Kinda took over from USAK as the primary sanctioning body for the indy cars But I don't believe there's a whole lot of difference and I'm sure there's a couple of old timers out there who will correct me and tell me I'm totally wrong that spectrum but as far ars I know the many very similar to the supervie's let's We'll wrap up our our trend. speedway addition addition. Here with the you know what led to the demise of Trenton speedway now you mentioned conor will lead to the demise from from the NASCAR perspective the but what led it to now become a ups shipping facility and housing a cramped housing development in Trenton New Jersey. Well there's a lot of contributing factors there if you look at The fate of say Riverside in Ontario California. It's very similar to what happened to trend. uh-huh as urban sprawl kind of moved in and again trying to sandwiched between New York City and Philadelphia. Real estate values were much higher therefore redevelopment than they are to have a have a racetrack. They would sit there Dormant for most of the year until the state fair came around pocono played a part in the demise. We had A. It sounds weird to say. Oakland wasn't ultra-modern facility to Trenton. They say that today with the POCONOS got knocked. It'd be a little behind the ties. But you know back back in the early seventies and you you know what's POCO open their doors. That you sack was there right away and So you've got the kind of geographical area covered fan so the crowd started and the The other contributing factor was they were looking to move the state. Okay Fair from Trenton to Sussex County which happened in I wanNA say nineteen eighty three which was about two years after the the track close but they went ahead and sold the track and the entirety other state fairgrounds to private developers. A few other things that factored into this might be seventy six. The when he figured stay fairgrounds state money coming into their right in nineteen seventy six. There's a lot of state money that went into build giant stadium to attract both New York giants and the New York jets to play new New Jersey up in the meadowlands Then in nineteen eighty. They built the Basketball Stadium there to track the New Jersey Nets and the New Jersey devils. So he's got state. Money is being funneled. A that way. Farther up north and SORTA little less going into Trenton. That combined with the the real estate prices going up to where it's more lucrative just to sell it The state money and the dwindling crowds all kind of off an apartment. There so a lot of folks will tell you that various nothing. Nothing you can see that will tell. Are you a speedway used to be there but there are a few things you can look at If you go to the next to the the UPS facility. There's a nice nice little a second meditation garden. It's called the Grounds for sculpture as a Lotta sculpture. A lot of Greenery and plants and whatnot. It's just a nice little place place. There's a little part in the middle and it's these sculpture court. Now when they pulled the grand stands out in the still. We're talking about this concrete foundation that they couldn't they wouldn't pull out when they moved the track in the fifties So they still didn't pull that concrete foundation out so they so they built the grounds for sculpture These sculpture court right over the top of the concrete foundation so he footprints of these sculptured court is the contour of ask from Trenton. Other than other than that. There's not a lot you can. I see some folks. There's a street in the suburb. That used to be the front straightaway. I mean it's been paved over so many times and whatnot. It's it's it's not the same with I. I really don't see that you can see that there. But the the Sculpture Court still has the contour of the original grandstand there. So if you can kind of visualize it when he's when you save you could stand in there. Ignore all the sculpture in imagine a racetrack. Being there you can maybe feel it but otherwise otherwise it's You know there's nothing left you know urban development there's a nice Housing silty a big. UPS thing I went to I went to the last indycar races at Trenton. And those were nights you seventy nine when the cart series had three races that year. I watch the double header event in June. Bobby one one. Both of those Ask the time I was there. The facilities were you know obviously suffering from some lack of upkeep and whatnot that all factors into that state money being funneled up to the meadowlands for for football basketball and hockey which was drawing more folks and racing so But again Trenton has left an indelible and indelible Galvin Marketing Race to you know to sit and talk with Mario Sit and talk with. Aj or sit and talk with other guys that have one. They're like you know Gordon Johncock and even Bobby Unser Rick mears won the final race at Trenton They'll all have fun memories. Yeah I've got a picture from. Aj's less when they're hanging on my wall here in in the office it's Such a cool track to talk about Frank thanks very much for the history lesson on on trend here. I think we'll we'll talk Langhorne next In the near future here but I hope everybody appreciated this and enjoyed the Nazar speedway edition and As well and we'll be back with more these throughout the off season. Thanks very much frank. Thank you appreciate having me on no problem art.

Our traditional preview June ninth showing close the co anchor of the morning show on her Montreal race line radio network. Affiliate TSN six ninety who's also the station's Formula one specialist. Pretty handy will Lewis Hamilton the Mercedes continue their domination. Montreal convention Ferrari, go back toback. Maybe it has the city warmed to young Montreal or land stroll and where's the best party in Montreal? On grand prix weekend. You may ask all of it, and more examined in detail with Sean star on race line radio. What's the vibe lake? I mean as it taken anybody can hope is it here already, you know what I mean. Yeah, yeah. I mean, a lot of much reality circle, the drama free dates on their calendars, and no matter what no matter who's like sitting atop the driver standings. It's, it's just a great weekend. Montreal. And I think only do restaurant and hotel, gays and all of all the people that make a good. Buck off the ground relief. And I think, you know, most people that love a good time in our city. Really this is one of this is like the kick off to summer. Let's put it that fast and just for laughs and all that. But to me, the grand prix is the vote if I kick off the summer in Montreal, the members of the morning show on TSN sixty Montreal affiliate in town. And I call him an F one specialist. I embarrass him when I do that, but he is. And we enjoy we enjoy our chats if I'm coming into the city of Montreal for the first time to see the Canadian Grand Prix it. Seclusion villneuve. You'll Notre Dame down to the waterfront. What's the what's the, the best party area to go to them looking for that? I mean sometimes you can go to rest. Frantz and see, you know crew members from teams. And what have you what, what, what's the hot place in Montreal during the weekend? Sean three spots. The, the crescent street F, one restful, the close down the street Kresa street for those that have never been too much. We all it is the, the party of writing. There's, there's nightclubs on either side of the street, fancy restaurants, evil, all of those things, and basically it runs it intersects between Sherpur can take tattered street now sherbrooke, you have the high end shops, and that's where your best chance of maybe seeing an F one driver received the well to do driving their McLaren the on the streets, and Harari, and the high end supercars chances are you're gonna see it kind of in bad area. A Saint Laurent or Saint Lawrence boulevard of your old school anglophone, Saint Lawrence boulevard, has again, a lot of separate butts a good chance are gonna see some effort drivers there. Of course, there's the old port of Montreal lot of fancy hotels, lots of parties and lots of very expensive highly overprice restaurant. He'll make up the heavy tourism area of our city. So I think if you're coming to Montreal for grand prix weekend. I think you wanna check crescent street to see to see people and cars old. Montreal, you have a lot of money and you wanna eat over place food, our Saint Lawrence boulevard, saline street, if you want, where, again, a lot of supper clubs, and really a good time to open up a bottle and just relax and people shown is there a way for fans to get from where they're staying in hotels to get transportation onto the island to get to the race rather than trying to park and all that's what about what about transit is, is that available for that kind of thing. I recommend highly recommend that you park, your car, and hop on the metro, take it to the series, you'll Ville of, and you don't have to deal with parking. You don't have to deal with traffic. You don't have to deal with construction detours and everything that comes with the headache of summer construction, material. Yeah. And it's really accommodating, it's super it's super reliable and it really is makes for a stress free gay going for any of the practice or if you're going for race day Sunday, that sounds the best way to go, Sean star TSN, six ninety Montreal our f one specialist and good friend from the morning show. Now getting into the rudiments of the race the way Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes is rolling here. We did have metal and Ferrari win it. And of course, being a Ferrari town, they went home happy, but this year you kinda wonder what's going to happen with with you know, BOTAS in with Lewis and Mercedes at the top of the heap and Ferrari, pedal in hard. Trying to catch them. What do we look for as we come into grand prix weekend? Montreal in your institution. But I think you know what to look for is the same old fable. And that's dominant performance from from Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian fedel in bad. Order what we were talking about the Monaco grand prix the other day on the ESPN six ninety morning show. We were talking about Lewis Hamilton and having a rather racer will end while Sebastian vigilant Ferrario was there is just so obvious to me, and I and I think a lot of people feel the same way as I do. Boost Hamilton is heads entails, best driver in formula watch, and it's it's easier day. And he's more joy able to watch for humble and having more chemistry with his teammate. I think also alleviate some of the birth that baby listed a couple of years ago. So I think when you marry Hamilton's talent with his car, and where he is more experienced driver. Been there done that before everything. Continues to, to spell out a Lewis Hamilton dominating the twenty nineteen season. I don't think that changes on this track on, on race day Sunday at the Kennedy chief Lynch stroll. I mean, the the is cliche Bill. No. We know how the city you know, invalid. Those guys not only not only shielded. His son jock is Montreal destined to wrap their arms around young Lance stroll from Montreal like they did those guys is that in the destiny somewhere. You think I mean, I think it's early in his match ration- of said that to you before what do you think? Okay. And I'll give it to your straight, if it's Acton known the race team. He wouldn't be a driver for me to win today. That's just how I feel about it. It's common belief. Yep. To get your question of Montrealers. And are they truly embracing with open arms? Stroll the short answer is no. They're not really. And, you know, when you see land stroll and you see him talk, and you listen to him. He doesn't sound like Montreal are sure you know, his family is from here and everything else. Lance stroll can grow up in Montreal. This is a man, a young man granted that had the benefits of, of a vast amount of wealth in order to schools in the plying his trade, and trying to be professional race car driver doing so over in Europe. And while he, you know, is much real the only way, I can honestly Eric see this town opening up their arms, and calling them their native son is back home. Yeah. As he's got. Are winning. And he starts to start competes the bottom line. No. I hate to say it route much reorder you call it, we see it is at has a tendency to be a bandwagon town and Montrealers wanna winter, they love a winner, and they love a winner, especially so when he's from here, there's an expression we use here material in good shape. New that means a local boy, a guy from here. Gotcha. And if Lance stroke can start winning start putting appoints starts threatening Lewis Hamilton Sebastian battle over Valerie, or, or a max Verstappen. Cates, your pick of up five drivers. If Landstuhl could begin to enter into that conversation, then and only then in my belief will Montrealers late claim to Lynch strolls being one of our own kind of funny because we don't get that now but Montreal sportsman's and effort fence will feel that way only when he starts winning jury interesting observation very interesting. They've made some improvements down there. They've done some some structures and. Terms of the garage, I think the sweet sweat. What can fans see that's going to be different from last year? Tell you there was the story. The local paper, the Montreal gazette a week or so about the construction going on to, you know, bring circles you'll fail into into twenty nineteen paddock's repainting the this the surface of the track itself. And you know, typical Montreal where behind construction has, you know, reached a couple of different snafus, there seems to be this panic. I'm sure it'll be fine on race day for the practice sessions and everything else. I'm sure it'll be funny by then, but boy, there, there's a little bit of sweatier on that the construction workers getting circle. Joe Bill ready for the Canadian robbery a really under the gun burning the candle at both ends musically say, but it terms of getting the sweets upgraded a getting facility upgraded allowing these teams to actually have everything that their disposal as opposed to being a hindrance or, or things around. Not working or infrastructure. Look shoddy at best, right? So it's, it's it was a positive sign scientists money being poured in because so much money is brought into the city stream is a Formula one. It's only fair, it's the right thing to do exactly Sean completely time we could go for hours, talking about this, but you become a big part of our preview of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal in your town radio.

NASCAR America Driver to Driver: Indianapolis winner Kevin Harvick talks with Jeff Burton

"And. Our great today to have Kevin Harvick join the. American driver driver Kevin Great Nail. Sunday must feel awful good it does, and you know I think when when you look at racetracks. Going to the brick yard is is obviously a way up there on the on the on the checklist, for not only myself, but everybody on our team and most everybody in the garage so. Growing up as a as a huge. Rick, mears span in one in race, it Indian and being able to to go to victory. Lane three times now is is something that I would have never dreamed up. So interviews are always always way better during the week after after the race. When when you've gone to Victory Lane so special place to win at Obviously, it was, it was an intense race, but you know I. Think as you look back on it. It was it was something that will always remember. And I got so excited. Jeff that I left the place without kissing the brick so. Not Not not having not having your guy and. Not Having somebody to help died me after the race. They take the car after Victory Lane and I'm all by myself and I'm like well I guess I'll go home and forgot to do everything so first thing I did was get in trouble when I got home from GM. Because I didn't just brick so when I would imagine that. that it must be extremely odd win the BRICKYARD, four hundred Ugandan bookstore, and you just bricks. You do all those things, the fans. It must be extremely. Weird to have no fans there. When you go, celebrate yet, Jeff I'm I'm just not a person that likes the kind of get up and bang on my own chest and pat myself on the back. I really enjoy the fact of of being able to accomplish something as it grew and you know. I think that's one of the keys to everything. That's going on right now. The people that we have in the belief that they haven't each other in the things that we communicate each other do, but in that it's also fun to high five people and you know, yell and scream together after the race. Great Beer on each other and talk about things that you've done pass. And things that you just did and. Now. It's just awkward you don't you don't know. What should I five them in my close to somebody? We climbed the fence because that's what Tony would have wanted us to do. We know how special that places and I know I said no celebrations, but my teams looking at me like Hey, man, we just. We just won the brickyard we need to. We need to do something here. We can't just stand around and and not do anything so to be able to have a little bit of. Those guys after the race was was fun for me. But getting out of that car, and having all that emotion, and all that excitement, and all the feelings that you have from being inside that race car for three and a half four hours, and not having really anybody to share with it is is really strange. I've never realized how much emotion things that you take from the crowd and people in the fans in the stands and in your team. In order to have those celebrations, and now it's just enthusiasm to have that celebration is is not there and there's nobody to share. My enthusiasm with this is sports uncovered the uniform crates that revolutionized college football. Make your picture of Work Light Spiderman on steroids. Subscribed to sports uncovered for free wherever you listen to podcasts. Can, you talk. You're talking about coach rates right the celebration. What I'm really curious about I. Think the fans are too. Is What about free race like how are you guys for? Harry's on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You know to get ready for races where you can't practice. You're not spending time with your team I. Know You. You're the Kinda guy that gets in meetings and demand sayings moves the ball. Makes things happen so without being in contact? Are you guys doing this in about a white? Having so much, says yeah, you know I, think I'm I'm very fortunate to. To to be in a situation to where it's. It's not a lot different other than the in-person meetings in the shop in the trailer time at the racetrack. Am You know my group of guys and myself have always been emails text in that little bit of facetime that we have is now done through our Microsoft teams app of that were that we use, or you know handsome some final decisions at places where we feel like there's some questions that need to be answered so I think for me, it's it's very similar. That communication is is just like. You're having these conversations on your ipad or your computer a lot of text during the week and I've actually gone to back to watching some of the races. Just because you WanNa have some reference in your mind of of what's going on. You know from from a mental standpoint so I've been a little bit tentative, too. I have not gone to the simulator yet. Just because you're trying to trying to keep that bubble is as big as possible in stay out of situations to where I'm not around people that I. Don't know you know you can't do that in my opinion there yet, so you know. I. I've. Tried to do everything from from video in past references on on things that we've done a team, so Kevin without practicing without being not gonNA simulator. We know there's a playoff gun. We know you're going to have to find a way to improve every team always does will challenges in making your team better in in this scenario. Well, that's difficult and I think a lot of that is gonNA. Come you know in the belief from your CFD programs. You know a lot of it's gonNA come from the evolution of things that you're learning at the race. Check right now, and they're small. You can't go to the racetrack right now. Throw things at the car that you want to try that you in the simulator and just put them in the race car, so it's going to be little bits and pieces here and there that that you made trial a little bit different spring, or you may try a little bit different. Stop because those big things I don't know that you're going. Going to see that same type of evolution, as we get to the playoffs, if we continue in the format that we're in right now, because of the fact that you're not going to the racetrack and being able to try so many big things right now. It's it's there's a lot of nitpicking of things that you're doing a in getting the camera. Right in in little things like that is is difficult, just because you don't know exactly where you need to be so i. don't know that you're gonna see see that same. Type of evolution, just because of the fact of the wind tunnels not used as much. You know the big things in practice, not being tried as much so it'll be interesting to see what evolution is once off star. Why can't think of many positive things of covid nineteen? But there's a silver lining in every dark cloud I would say in one of those things is a little bit. Time at home, right, you know, spend time with family. What are you guys been doing to spend time together? Yes, so it's been very interesting. Obviously, there's no summer camps this year. There's there's not anything happening around. School couldn't play baseball because of got cancelled, so I don't know if you call this fortunate or unfortunate Jeff, but we have started basically a go-cart team and we've tried to tried to isolate ourselves at the go kart track in in the we've become full-time. Go Kart racers with with Keelan and I think for for us. That's been a lot of fun. You know it's something that I could do. at our shop in our trailer at. Zoe We've definitely. Ventured down that road I, think for me being at home, and and you know the first several weeks were were very different, would just leave the IRA and stuff because I was terrible. But I think for for me. It's been it took a couple of weeks to get adjusted, but you know you've you've become used to cooking your own meals and staying at home, and not going to the grocery store had never going out to eat, but spending quality time with Piper and Keelan Selena has has definitely been definitely been a lot of fun and interesting, and and you know I think it's it's been the new normal I. Guess You could say so it's. It's definitely been great to have that family time.

You Leaders into sport, not just on the racetrack, but off the racetrack and you know this sport has been under a tremendous amount of attention lately. How do you think Sports Hamma? Sports hamlet well. Obviously. You know with everything that's going on in the world. There's a lot of things that you that you have to pay attention to and I. Think you know when you look at. The unity and everything that happened at Talladega obviously the the outcome was I. Guess What we had all hoped it would be you know NASCAR's reaction to it. I don't think there was any other way that you could react to that and you know what I think. When you look at the the opposite reaction that Nassar could have had that puts you in a worse position than than having backtracking and say you know top through the scenario that we went through so I've been through this on on different levels. You know you saw the unity? The garage has Talladega the support that we all have for each other, but that doesn't change with the. Of everything that that was founded, Talladega and I've been there. You know after Dale Earnhardt's death, and you look at the unity and the family atmosphere that is created in this sport, and you know those of us that live in on a weekly basis, and and have to function in our weekly basis. Understand that I don't think the outside world than understand the unity in family atmosphere that is created here. Here because they don't limit most of us have grown up around this. Your family grew up around it. Multiple families have grown up around a lot of us. our kids play together. We travel together and in the end the the unity in this garage can get through any situation, but we want this to be a sport that everybody feels comfortable in whether it's in the garage in the grandstands and. We're going to work towards that whether it's a tweet from the president that that is so misinformed on on a number of different levels, or if it's a you know a show of unity that we had after Talladega with some things that could have been done different you know in the outcome, it doesn't matter. We're going to support each other. We're GONNA work through it. And this is like no other and I'm proud to be a part of a proud. The things that we've done and will continue to work through this as as as a group, and it's GonNa. Be Great. I is fascinated how? Competitors can go at. It is hard as we do. Go at it, you know between crew members drivers everybody in that garage there, and it's a war right, but it's crazy how it's family at the same time and it's like you can. You can pick going you competition, but nobody else. Is GonNa pick on right me as crazy. How that you? Kevin is really cool to see. See Wednesday climate fence. I know how much regard for hundred means to you. The history of the brickyard, and on top of that we had some increased Jewish lot more watching son, so really fond day for the entire sport, and I know for you personally as well. I appreciate that Jeff I'm proud of what we're doing is a team, but I'm even more proud of of what we're doing as a sport and the things that we've done to to move our sport forward and show the world that we're going to continue to do that, so we're GonNa, do everything we can and hopefully. The street going of Roman well because winning never gets old Jeff. No! It hasn't thank you for joining us. You guys thank you.

Come down here to the studio and meet Brad Gillian. Alexis Eric's where we stay far apart from each other. Is that about right absolutely correct but but really no different than than what we are doing this. Show normal it's a good thing. We bought this big huge desk kidding because it gives us a lot of room we are doing. The social distancing thing here can Bernhardt is in a completely other Rhine glass directing the show. So we're we're doing. We're doing our part as we continue to trudge through the Corona Virus Quarantine Alexis. I'll start with you. How are you and your husband Jordan holding up during all of this? We're doing good I. I'm a little tired this morning. I was woken up about four o'clock by some very heavy winds and rain. In the in the North Carolina area this morning thoughts anybody who is affected by the the damaging storms came through our area and I think they're on their way to Virginia as we speak But besides that hunkering down for that trying to figure out you know navigate this new world that we live in working from home Is Many conference calls as we can make do which is You know I actually enjoy those. I know there's lots of Jokes twitter memes out there about how conference calls can be a little bit much but I enjoy getting to see you guys More than just once a week. So I've been enjoying the conference calls just trying to do my part Not a lot that we can do. But just staying home and and social distancing and washing our hands You feel like you're doing a little bit. Something fucking do a public service to people who are doing. The conference calls. And everything and this is universal. If you're not talking mutual microphone. I saw somebody posted the other day. Something about The Not muting is the new reply. All Yeah even worse. Exactly someone else talk picked it up and meet suppression. Who is talking about an hour case though we have a smaller group than we do see screen shots of people that are on calls with twenty-five folks. Yeah and I think that'd be maddening with us. It's usually eight or nine P. One of the things that I did this past weekend is I watched the new episode of Saturday night live. That came out which was it. Interestingly shot because all of the Saturday night live folks were doing it remotely from their houses so they had to use a lot of creativity to be able to put on a whole Saturday night. Live show remotely individually from their their own homes and one of them was was a skit on zoom calls and people. Just you know older generations. Don't know how to use it and get confused and it very funny but But yeah I mean some light hearted notes this weekend hanging up on a zoom conference call is where I work out. 'cause I WANNA make absolutely sure that I'm off of the call and that you're not following me around going to the bathroom right because that's happened. We've seen it on on social media. You'll have done that. Yes they have and just close. Your computer lives forever. It's regrettable so We have kept in touch with each other. That's been nice. My wife and I have been spending a lot of time going on walks exploring new trails and things like that we actually got in collapsible walking sticks yesterday. I what Amazon Perch. Yeah Yeah Yeah thank goodness and Amazon's Hamza knows where our house is. I was just leisure to got like a big staff gamble for something that would be better. Have a big one that I made on my own. These collapsible ones weigh a lot less. And so you walking L. Elevations we're working up to it. Yeah we're working to we. We tackled one the other day that we'd never been to before and it and let's put it this way. Our heart rates got up there. Wow pass the mailbox back down to the corner by the way. This show is brought to you by Toyota for the latest Toyota racing information visit Toyota racing dot com. We don't have a Toyota performance report. We did not have a big. I racing event this past weekend because it was Easter. Although during the week I did watch an eye racing event for Myrtle beach speedway. Oh Yeah I am featuring your husband Jordan. Yeah Yeah that was exciting to watch I. It warmed my heart that both of you tuned in as well to watch As well as a quite a few other people I might add But yeah he close but no cigar. He finished second place second place but it was exciting there at the end so every other week running like the replacement series which TJ majors longtime sponsor for Dale Jr. current spotter for Joey Logano and And Kevin Hamlin. They're the ones who kind of started this deal. But but Jordan's got an invite obviously based on who he knows and truly his skills as an I racer and it was awesome. I mean the the race before that he was running top five easily chase. Briscoe took them out by the way. I'm Jordan second biggest fan and I'm just GONNA go. I'm going to get a white t shirt out of the drawer and just do us a sharpie and put an eighty five on there not not to fan and see if you'll wear it and he finished second to majestic is yes off the list a he. He's very good and not only. Is he the heat on? I racing but in in those type of cars. He's he doesn't have as much experience winning in in the Cup car. The bigger heavier cars but It was a street stock race at Myrtle beach and so he's very experienced in those cars. But there were I mean Kevin. Harvick was in the field. Kyle Busch Dale Jr. So there was a lot of of very legit race car drivers competing giving away my age. I've actually called races at Myrtle. Beach Mark Darrow. And I did a bunch of them down there. You actually own some of those cars before they went to the junk yard and then later came back. Three stockholders thrilled listening in speaking to the IRA. Same thing it is. It has upset the apple cart for a couple of drivers a week and a half ago. It was bubble wallison rage. Quit the game and walked off and lost his sponsorship from blue EMU and then more recently kyle. Larson uses a racial slur. He thought he was off air. It doesn't really matter and that we don't know all the ramifications from that we record this show but folks who's going to pay a price for that yeah completely unacceptable. Not exactly sure where his head was at when that happened. I I as you said. I'm pretty sure he did not think he was being broadcast. But regardless unacceptable. There's a few things we don't know as the show is being recorded. There has not been a statement from NASCAR yet. There has not been a statement from chip Ganassi racing or any of kyle sponsors or kyle himself that I know of So th th you know. Some things could transpire in the coming hours and days as far as the ramifications and how this is going to and I believe it is absolutely going to upset his career trajectory in some way. It's on it's unavoidable. It's GonNa hit hard. I'm very disappointed. Not Not just what happened. That's just bad. I genuinely liked kyle. Larson he is. He's always been a good person to be in all of that. I'm disappointed that that came out of his mouth in that happened. But I'm really disappointed because we've had such a wonderful feel good story line of online racing going on in our sport of NAS car that has gone beyond our sport of Nascar Into the mainstream. And now this goes even deeper into the mainstream and in my opinion just puts a big strain on on what has been a really good thing and it's just a huge disappointment so by the time we get around recording this show next week. We'll have a lot of follow up I'm sure on this carson incident by the way this show is brought to you in part by blue EMU. Maximum pain relief. The official pain relief cream of the performance racing network coming up.

So typically slow moving in emporia is Is on the news for some of the wrong reasons but Yeah we just doing everything we can doing. Our part to to stay at home and and Practice social distancing and trying to get this thing passed as soon as possible. Well Hermes first off. It's so good to hear your voice. I wish you were in the studio with us. I know you will be Sooner rather than later hopefully As far as the storms are concerned they blew through North Carolina where we are now just a few hours ago and it was. It was kinda crazy but stay safe out there How are you in the family? Doing I mean how. How are you guys getting through the quarantine time the time of covert nineteen? Are you playing board games or you binge watching Netflix series? How how are you passing the time? Well I'm still Personally the engine or going to work. We are family. Business is truck stops and restaurants travelcenters. Which are you know Essential businesses We gotTA keep truck drivers and truckers on the road and so we we continuing to you know to go to work during the day And we certainly have changed and things at our offices and we've actually closed the office to the general public and using drop boxes and other things of that nature to continue to operate But all the all the girls are at home Name so every evening we all return home together and you know there's been a a silver lining for me. It's that you know I. I thought the days of having everybody at home together and my family. You know we're over and and now I've got a little bit more of that so if you're trying to look for a positive thing you know the fact of having everybody together at home you know every night around us up to table you know has been has been good. It's been missing us to you. Know to keep looking and had my family together turned our living room into a cornhole I hope was for Christmas. Not this past year but the year before and never even took him out of the box and and finally took him out of the box and put them in Dean and we've been playing Cornhole every night and the girls. Have you got video games and other things like that but we've had our nightly competitive cornhole games and and a lot of fun and of course it turns out. I know better at Cornhole than I was the driving a race car to get better. Who is the Cornhole champion your family? Who's the one that that seems to put it on everybody will Number one in the rankings. Right now is chorus boyfriend. Cameron looks like he got a lot of Cornhole in in college. And you know so. He's got a little head start on the nail My youngest is surprising. Surprisingly shown A good ability. I seem to let my emotions get the best of me and I've yet been able to you know to to master that. But Hey it's been a lot of fun You know anything you can do to pass the time and do it as a family and try to make the best of a really unfortunate situation. That's what we're trying to do as as everybody else. You Know Herman when you talk about trying to make the best unfortunate situation while while you haven't driven fulltime here in a few years we still see you hop in a race car every so often especially down there at Martinsville speedway. I wonder without knowing what a schedule is right now. If there is a little bit of good that can come out of this. Say for someone like you if maybe this create an opportunity or to you know knowing how things are going to be compact that you know maybe some things could open up. That might be a right deal for you to get behind the wheel. You never know You know another thing with me. You know for the last twenty five years just about everything that I've driven. Racecar wise has had Virginia lottery on it and This is you know. I was scheduled to appear at Richmond International Raceway at Virginia Lottery. Kim I was scheduled to appear in Martinsville Virginia. On behalf of the Virginia Lottery San Autographs. And all that stuff is is You know obviously with racist being postponed all that has been postponed will in the Virginia Lottery Office or not. You know. We're not opened either. So you know that's another thing and it's not just racing is certainly not just be but You know while we're down. So are you know the majority of the businesses and operations of the people that are involved in the sport whether they be you know uh sponsors or you know like you guys are having to change schedules in alter your daily life and and all that so. I will say that same thing. I felt like it's my family over the last couple of weeks. I know that when this is over that I will appreciate my normal life way more than I used to at least for granted but I but I'm so used so anxious to you know just things normally so we can you know. Do all the things we normally do and in love with well chatting with Army Sadler in Emporia Virginia. One of our usual co host here on fast-talking harming was talking about the fact that the family has been playing a lot of indoor cornhole during quarantine her. I've always found out the secret and I feel like I'm a very accomplished cornhole player. I'm right handed. You have to have a twelve ounce counterbalance on the other hand and improves your game. Now I don't know if you can do that in the home version but it's always worked for me. Well that's how bad things have gotten for me because since my college days. I have not been a big drinker But I find myself every night playing cornhole and drinking beers I am trying that but I still have not protected. The Knicks yet dug up to this point. I've I've had the one or two years why we're playing so I think I'll take your advice and maybe tonight I'll get like a three hour. Install of the game and see how that works and report back after. I know you've posted videos. Be less understandable on the radio. Currently I am so we're really in a serious vain. Her Me Your your family has a thriving business there and Emporia and you have a restaurant. You have a truck stop. How are you servicing? These truckers that stop in to get fuel who would normally come in and set down and eat. How how you actually feeding them right now? Well everything here you know you know in business. We've been fortunate for so many years like you say we're in travelcenters truck stops restaurants and you know for years. We've you know we've had good businesses and great community support And then all of a sudden you know with these stay at home orders and things down. It is really. I mean. I'll say it again. Turn everything down. All of our restaurants are closed. As far as down rings are concerned so all we can do. Doug is provided either Carry out or the places. We have drive throughs. We can do draft service. It's a I mean it's really really put up. Put a put a damper on things for us Business wise as far as the convenience stores. You know everybody's quote unquote staying at home. So how convenience store business is cut in half if not if not more but it's just part of what we everybody has to do right now to kind of put this behind us so we try to you. Know take extra time with each truck driver and out of you know Coming into place in order We try to you know make. The experiences is as good as possible and and and and provide good food. Good Service to to the best that we can until we can you know. Get this Get this behind us. But everybody's got their you know severely limited on what they can do and and and how we can do it and but but we certainly are truck drivers Continuing to under some really tough circumstances continuing to work every day to make sure that grocery stores stocked and things like that. We love pull. We take these things for granted in everyday life. But I won't do that anymore. You know it's all about adapting to the situation. Her me and you guys are are certainly doing that. To the best of your ability there at at truck stops And one of the ways. That NASCAR is doing. That is V. I. Racing. I think we'd be remiss if we didn't talk to you just a little bit about that. Is there a chance that maybe the Virginia lottery virtual car will hit the track anytime soon? You know Bobby Labonte and some of these other drivers are coming out of retirement. Give it another go. Alexis I gotTa Tell You I guess I'm showing my age a little bit but prior to this crisis that forced us to sit at home and and people started to talk more about. I racing and to watch TV. And all those things that I knew absolutely nothing about it. I didn't hear people talk about it but I've never watched it. I never talked about it. It just wasn't anything that I ever was involved in and you know so during this break we started to see. I racing on TV. And it's all over the Internet and in all over everywhere and my brother has is You know he got him up. I guess they call it a rig this house now and it's starting to do some of that and So it won't be long probably I'll be you know trying to you know win. Able be go in you know. Test is machine and see what's up with that but I I really enjoyed it. I've been pleasantly surprised by the entertainment value of it. It's a way we can still get together. Virtually and and and watch racing and and talk about it and you know one positive. I hope that comes from this is that I hear and see a lot. More YOUNGER PEOPLE. The younger generation not only competing but talking about racing. And you know you know three hours and so maybe on the other side when we are able to go back to the racetrack with some of these younger you know audiences and the younger demographic that we've been struggling to reach. Maybe we are reaching through our racing and we'll get them. You know one of these days to come out to the racetrack. So that'll be an important piece of growing our fan base. Well her me. We really appreciate you giving us some of your time. We want you to take care of yourself and your family up there and when this situation finally settles down we can't wait to get you back here in the studio advocate opportunity to be on you guys. Stay safe out there and You know we we all depending on. This is one thing I was telling my kids the other night. I equate this virus. Going back to racing at Talladega place that you have to depend on other people not screw things up for you and so we're out ending on each other to you know to to do the right things during this period so we can all safely Get back to work and normalize as soon as possible and like you guys. I look forward doing that. And being back in the studio soon very well said Hermes Sadler one of our regular co host here on fast. Talk attention homeowners. Do you have a house?

Doug Rice Alexis Ericsson. Brad Gilly the new ballot for the Nascar Hall of fame has been released. We'll talk with Jeff Burton shortly on the show because his name appears along with Neil Bonnett. Dale EARNHARDT Jr. Carl Edwards. Harry gant Harry Hyde Larry Phillips Ricky Rudd curved shelving Mike Stefanik on the pioneer ballot. It's Jake elder red farmer. Banjo Mathews Hershel. Mcgriff and Ralph Moody and Alexis. This is a new format for NASCAR. Prior to this there was a list of twenty five names and you picked five now. There's a much shorter list. Fifteen names you. Pick three to moderns one from the pioneer yet. Can I just say I don't envy you because when you go to your on the voting panel and we when you go to vote It's GonNa be a hard boat to make especially when you're talking about only taking two from the modern era and then you know one from the pioneer. There's only five folks in the pioneer so that might be easy but narrowing the the ten Folks that are in the modern era ballot down to two. I'm just glad I don't have to do that. Can be a challenge breath really it is You know in for me and I've told you this before and I've said this I'm all about the crew chief for all right now. I do feel it's been under served in the Nascar Hall of fame. I think there are people like Kirk. Schommer Dean who's won four championships And Jake elder who's won three and honestly Banjo Matthews? Who's probably been responsible for? Hundreds of NASCAR. Wins is the chassis builder. And all of that stuff. I just feel those positions are underserved. I know that they've not been the stars of the sport. The people who steering wheels are but man. I think there is a lot of talent and a lot of people who made history and NASCAR. Who still have yet to get in and it comes from that side of the fence. All right from the modern era of the guy with the most wins is Carl Edwards with twenty eight. Is He a first ballot hall of Famer? No I don't think so either and that's so hard to say when you say he's the one that has the most wins. But I I agree. I don't I don't think he is. Obviously there's ten names on here. Three that are new to the ballot this year. Jeff Burton dillard heart junior and Carl Edwards I think just between those three. It's hard to pick two so yeah. I think Carl's exit from the sport. Hurts him the absence of a cup championship even though he tied for one? Yeah which you know. I mean that that says a lot and you know. He competed contended all the way to the end for another one and one and xfinity championship. It's just not there for first time ballot. Do either of you know. Even what he's doing right now I mean. I don't think that the general public knows is certainly a mountain bike races last year. He's been doing things with his family. Working on the farm being retired he has been out in the public but I still think the abruptness from how he left the sport is going to hurt him to get into the hall of fame. He'll get in his credentials will get eventually. But I don't know if he's first-ballot Dale Earnhardt Jr. first ballot. You know I think I I wanna say yes and hear me out. I know he doesn't have a cup championship. He has a few xfinity championships. Bush Bush series At the time but his contribution to the sport as a whole just in in the number of eyeballs that him alone brought to the sport of Nascar obviously his contribution now and broadcasting. He owns an extended series team which has been very successful I if he was selected first ballot. I wouldn't have a problem with that Yes because he's going to be but let me also make a competitive case for the championships all that the big wins Daytona. Five hundred's all star race and so on. He's wanted a flat half mile. A banked half mile three quarter mile a flat one mile. A banked one mile a half mile or a mile and a half or two. He's literally wanted every type of NASCAR track with the exception of a road course in the cup series but he did win. Watkins Glen and Xfinity. He has wanted every single type of race track. And all the things that Alexis everything else considered Nascar needs him in the hall of fame. He is the he is still the number one personality in a sport even though he's not driving He is. He is a mammoth in this sport and he needs to be in the hall of fame because they can benefit from having Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the class we'll take time out and we'll talk with a guy that also wants to be in the Nascar Hall of fame. Jeff Burton joins US shortly. You know that racing is not easy but did you know car. Shopping is easy. Auto trader is the only car shopping site with Kelley Blue Book Price Adviser. So you can be confident. The price is fair confident. When you make a pass on that semi truck going slow in the fast lane car shopping now. Easier than racing and eighteen wheeler auto trader. Finally it's easy during this time. In our country the Nascar community wants to salute and thank all the medical professionals doctors. Scientists nurse first responders everybody on the front lines. We're with you we are with you. Were here with you. And we will continue to do our part and staying home and social distancing so that we can beat this so we can all beat this so that we can beat this together together together together together together.

Something six congratulations You've earned it and for all you've done on and off the track You should be proud or you know something like that. And I'm like the hill. He talked about tax back which is a question mark in a couple of a couple minutes. Went by and I know Steve. Really well and he wasn't you know when they start texting on your phone and makes it a little bubbles. They wouldn't make it bubble of any and I'm like oh it's like what are you talking about? There's just respond right back though. He got himself in a jam. He didn't know if you're supposed to be the cat out of the bag. Yeah soft move. That's actually outbound out. But that's fantastic. That's a great story. We played that clip there from that Inaugural race at Texas Motor speedway. There was so much going on that day and then you go out and win the interstate batteries race in the exide batteries car and I remembered all the drama around that. What what sticks at you flashing? All the way back to Nineteen ninety-seven the net. First Cup win. That day was was really about that the whole team. You know we. We started that team year before and had really had nothing. I mean we we started. We couldn't move into our shop until after Thanksgiving. We had no cars. We had Backup card and we went to Daytona was a was a rob Munro so oldsmobile. That was a backup car and We just we built that thing from nothing. Group of people went to Victory Lane that had struggled in fall and had collectively started from Ground Zero and that was just a really rewarding to be part of that thing and and and and we had come really close to winning quite a few races and we just you know I wasn't ready or fit crew wasn't ready made the wrong call it wrong time. Just whatever it happened to be but on that day under all the diversity of that day I mean it was. That track was crazy. How within design and a lot of wrecks mechanical issues and on that day we we came out on top and it was just a real sense of accomplishment. Everybody back then Jeff Trophy you got handed in Victory Lane. They had a whole deal. It was GONNA be the Fort Worth Cup. Nice big trophy and all of that yet. The trophy you took home was a little different. I mean now. It's a nice hand-carved wooden pair boots and a cowboy hat and all of that but you got the first win mark. Martin got the second But tell us about the trophies. Youtube guys got a and I know you kinda daddy about it too. Well we did actually tell the story. We're doing my family. I do a thing on the NBC force you to Macedonian Vcu do rather we talked about it we so we got the trophy. Victory Lanes really cool trophy. We took a pitcher and he's like hey we'll send it to you and you know we didn't. I win you know what we're doing and So several months later this trophy that was like a pint. Sized little thing came in the mail. And I'm like you know like it's not like you disappointed and I Eddie and Eddie's like that thing you know much I think Austin but anyway tomorrow on the next year and he got the same thing he got the same little trophy so we mark and I took pictures We took pictures in the New Hampshire Motor speedway Bristol trophy. That happened to be in his motor home. The that he had one and Standing standing next it with their little bitty Texas trophies and actually I think it went and went to cut scene. We were just razzing. We were rather than Rather than Eddie a little bit but he ended up sending US actually have to Texas mostly my trophies from the same race now because he sent us another one just having fun with any any time we can ratty we we we like that. So thank you very much We talk about your. I went Texas. You know when I went on and looked at the press. Release that the Nascar Hall of fame. Put out about all the nominees for this year. They have little blurbs about everybody's. Your says one twenty-one times in the cup series including the southern five hundred and two Coca Cola six hundreds besides those big You know crown jewel events. Are there any things that you look back on as like a pinnacle moment in your career that you just remember going allow? I'm here. I've made it you know I. I think that there's several several things that stick out to me. One of them was Mack Matt Kenseth an I had a really really good race at Dover It's just an incredible last twenty five laps and and Ended up winning the race and I have so much respect for Matt that you know twice. I was able to go. You know right. Let Race Matt really late in the race and find a way to win. Those winds made a lot. Because have much respect you have four guy and then you know a couple of months later I ran into Rick. Mears in the Concord Airport. Actually and he said to me that you know just I I watch that race and he said I think that every rookie in all forms of racist movie be required to watch that race because two guys went at it as hard as they could go at. It never touched had tremendous amount of respect. He said that's what raises all about. And in that moment. Here's Rick mears telling me that and and things like that stick out to me because the respect that the respect that I have for for my peers and the people came before me is really really high and just little things like that. You know being able to sit down and talk to him and you know because you know him because you've been in the sport and you sit there and talk as friends just things like that or moments that that just mean a lot to me because it's I just had so much respect and reverence for everything that happened before me happened during my driving era and also was happening. Now it's just it's a great sport great of course we're talking with Jeff Burton of NBC sports and most recently put on the ballot for the Nascar Hall of fame for his outstanding career.

You know what? What is the story surrounding that? What did you know conversations? Maybe you had with him. Well I mean Don Hawke and and and Myself and In Dale had some conversations. We were you know. First conversation of toner and You Know Dale approached me and was interested in when he was you know he was getting closer to retirement and he was inquired about whether or not I would be willing to drive a three car and that was I was. I don't even know I was shocked that he was even having a conversation with me. Obviously extremely flattered that he was having a conversation with me and We had you know we we spent thelan. I spent a lot of time in the garage. Ago 'cause we were we were. We spent a couple of years that we were really close to each other point so we were always part in each other in the in the in the garage and I got to know him through that a little bit And it was it was just. I don't even know it was just a huge compliment and honor that he was considering me. I'm sure he was considered other people as well But it was. It was one of those moments. Where you sitting there thinking? What the hell's happening here like and and But but yeah that's that was. That's where that came from and we had a few conversations but I was. I was really happy where I was at rally and Jack was You Know I love working for Jack. Rowell's you you know it there for a while Maysville. Jeff burn racing on the On the on the side. 'cause he just let me Buddy Parrott. He's had us go. He just wanted to do and gave us so much freedom and one one one of the biggest moments that stuck me with Jack. Rouse's remember we went to Atlanta where we're second in points went to Atlanta that early in the year we hadn't switched to provisionals yet for the for the for the current year with a brand new team. We had no points or second in points Dale Jarrett and his team. They were brand new team also and they were first employee and we missed the Atlanta race and We missed a race in a car that just like I wanted to have bill just like buddy wanted with everything we want it like. It was car. Did it everything how we wanted. Then we failed and Jack Rouse walked up to me and he said He said I'm sorry I didn't give you what you need to be successful this weekend and I thought man that's a guy right there. I'll go to war with like I am. He's on my. I'm on his team no matter what because here. He is taken responsibility for something that we deserved. Be taking complete responsibility for. And that's the kind of Guy Jack Rousey is and that's what that's one of those moments in time that sticks with you and remind you of the people in the sport you know Jeff being on the broadcast side of the sport now just as fellow nominee Dale earnhardt. Jr. Is We of course in the broadcast industry. Feel that Those contributions should be factored in just as much as the on-track contributions when it comes to hall of fame processes and And boats and things of that nature. How has that transition been for you? And and how do you look at that part of your contribution to ask our well so listen to this? I honestly believe that you know my race wins and the success. I had in the sport. There's people that have had more success on the track So I think that when of course I'm speaking out of you know I haven't spoken anybody about this. I'm just giving you my opinion. I believe that my nomination is also considering you know the things I've done in the sport You know the the amount of time and effort and energy that that was spent on the safety China move the ball in certain areas. Getting getting involved in the sport not just being a driver that was taken from the sport but trying to give something back And you know I believe that you know that's part of my nomination and and by the way I hope it is. I'm honored and humbled that people recognize that that I've done things outside of raising because that's important to me. I- Bobby Allison left the sport better from me. Then he got it and I think every driver every crew chief every member every car owners to feel the same way that there are. It's an honor to be part of this board. I think in today's Times people are starting to realize you know what an honor it is to be at the racetrack and how special it is to be at the racetrack and be part of the team And and you should. You should give back like you should give back. 'cause you've got here based on the work of other people in the sports not here without everybody else before is so you know. I. I hope that part of my nomination was is about those things because that that means a great deal to meet. That's part of who I am part of what I try to do in the sport so and so I think it I think it's a factor You know the broadcast thing is. I mean y'All y'all we call it. We spent a fair amount of time. You know before racist talking and you guys know. We're having a great time like I. I love my job. He was not a job. I mean I I get to go to the racetrack and weekends and talk about racing. I mean it's it's awesome and we work hard and we try hard and we put a lot of effort into it. But we have a good time doing it and I hope to do it for a long long time. I worked with great people and You know it's it's it's another way that I get satisfied. You know get satisfied. I haven't been really hard for me to walk away from racing. Post Rodman But this gives me my satisfaction of still being in the sport and seeing the people I like and spending time with my friends and I'd be watching them anyway. I'd be watching the races anyway so I get to watch them there and talk about them. And it's a huge privilege to still be part of it and I hope people think that I do a good job and our team does a good job. 'cause we we certainly certainly work hard at it. Well Jeff I think I can speak for a lot of folks in the media as driver. You were always very approachable late in your career you sort of evolved into the mayor of the garage. The guy that we go to when there were tough questions to be answered and you would take the time to do that. And that meant a lot to the folks here at this radio network and M. R. N. And everybody else. That covers the sports your accessibility among other things. I think is is a real positive By the way I am of the voters in the hall of fame. I'm going to promise you you're not GonNa get shut out okay. I what I what I've learned about this sport when when I When I started broke ask I kinda Kinda excelled a little bit and said okay. It's not as intense competition right. It's not tenses driving and then I realize we had is you know because we're listening at this. I think this is a good thing for the fans. We want to be better than Fox fossils to be better than US right. You want to be better than any more in. I mean I hope right. That's what makes us all better is that we push each other and and not in a negative way but in a positive way right if you and I've had this conversation you know if if if there's things that we need to do better I want somebody to tell me right. I I want somebody to tell us because it's competition I think makes us all better and then then this you know now. It's a competition where you're going to get. You're not going to get in and I'm not gonNA worry about it. I am extremely humbled and extremely honored. Obviously I want to be in the Nascar Hall of fame and the way. Because it's you know it's to me. It's a big deal but I'm just I'm going to enjoy the nomination and I I appreciate the nomination so much and I'm I'm just not gonNA get caught up in in the in the worrying about you know if and when I get in well we always appreciate your time.

Ep. 120 | Brendan Gaughan

"Hey everyone welcome to the racing writers. Podcast I'm your host Kelly Randall friends. I'm really excited about today's episode. Because Brendan Gone. One of my favorite people is the guest. If you haven't heard or maybe forgot Brendan his finishing up his NASCAR career this season after running the superspeedway races once again for Beard Motor Sports. But Brennan will tell you as he does in the podcast that he technically retired a few years ago so his fun playing around with the numbers. Sixty two teams now. What's coming to an end? Anyway was made official that this year was going to be it just four more races for Brendan. I shot him. A text graduating him on his career and then said hey before the year is over. I'M GONNA come calling for the podcast well during a period when everyone is isolated at home. That seemed like a good time to make it happen. And it's never a bad day when you talk to Brendan because his personality is infectious. I don't think I've ever had a conversation with him. That wasn't fun and didn't involve laughter. He's one of the nicest guys I've ever come across I personally. I've always respected him proud. Well he's treated me and how I've seen him treat others and he's always been available for whatever I've needed with my racing coverage he's fun- he's a great conversation and there's a lot to dig into in this episode we cover some of the highlights from his career. What he's doing now what he's involved in what he's GonNa be doing and racing is gone and then a few things in between so enjoy. The one of a kind Brendan gone on the racing writers podcasts. To be clear nothing has changed. This is it. I've been asked this question repeatedly lately because now they come out next year. They're going to run the this car in law and I am going to continue to say that and for the folks that are listening on with Ms Crandall. They don't see facetime but killing us. The that is my business partner right there and if I right now said yeah race next year. A couple of races. I might get stabbed so no I don't plan on coming back. Next year would be funded eight hundred five hundred again absolutely. It always is but right now with what's going on in the world as we're sitting here talking. I have a chemical business extremely busy. I have family businesses. That of course are in extremely difficult times and I need to focus on the things I need to focus on. And that's you know the family family business my businesses and so I- playing in my race car stuff may have to fall by the wayside on the NASCAR site. Well I had to check because you are one of the first people I thought of as soon as they said they were delaying next. Because I know that was one of the reasons that you said. Hey I don't WanNa star Jimmy. Both everybody's going. Oh you and Jimmy. He's actually spent set. Maybe I'm still hedging not hedging. My bet saying no. The pain was the new car. Yes that was. My primary thing is on the old dog. That doesn't need to go to a new trick. The way that this old car works the way it's been explained to me by the guys that are build them and doing them is that that equaliser that Daytona Talladega is is not going to be quite the same with this new car that it is going to take more engineering. It's going to take more. Money is going to take to be fast. It's going to be just like a mile and a half track and I don't want to waste the beards funny. I don't WanNa sit there and try to do it and honestly I'll be forty five this year and I'm I'm pretty darn happy Kelly. I've had a very charmed existence. I WANNA get to a bunch of things on that one. Last thing on this particular topic is that you have said a few times that okay a couple years ago. I quote unquote retired. I've just been playing the last couple of years. So so is the plane now coming to an end or can we officially say after this that you are now officially retired? Are we allowed to use that word? I officially retired after two thousand seventeen and you are are the reporting group that continues to fake news and misreport accurate on that because I actually had the first story on you retiree. The playing of NASCAR is going to come to an end. We've been very lucky. We Foster Daniel Henrich. We Foster Mcginn this year over junior motorsports we still have the point for hundred. The South point of my family are not leaving NASCAR. I am now you've got to remember. I have always had more fun playing in my off road cars so that does not mean. I'm not going to drive anything or do anything. But I'm going to ship. Buy Play back to what I want to play in. And after winning the BAJA THOUSAND LAST YEAR. It definitely got us all back excited again. Look we'd love doing it anyway but it was. It's been a two generation quest to try to win the thousand and we finally got it. We AIN'T GONNA stop my nephew my nephew. This is what pisses me off Kelly. He's seventeen years old and in his first year of racing he won the Baja one thousand in class. One which is the truckin trophy truck class. One of our classes and his grandfather tried to win it for fifty years never did his uncle's is father. We've all tried. He wanted in his first try then he went to the famous meant for one hundred that we have all tried to win for years. And he did it in a limited but he's still got a class win in the mid four hundred in his earth attempts. He thinks this crap is easy and I want to beat the living poop out of him so yeah his pop pop and I both just shake our heads and go. Oh Dear God we've created a monster so I'm going to continue to play with my nephew. I'm taking my kids in the desert. Now we're riding side by side. We're doing all that stuff. So I'm doing the stuff that I want to my family in the desert where I wanna be and it lets me spend my time with my businesses and take care of the right things. Well it is important to note that you're not just an ass car guy you've done a lot of the off road stuff and everything. So are there bucket list races that you might WanNa hit now. Once you're able to officially put this all behind the stop cars behind you. You know they're always was right now at this quarantine. I've gaining so much weight that I don't think I can fit mile road car. That's a lot because everybody knows I'm already the fat driver so they're still some stuff I mean. I did drive cars early early early in my career in the early nineties. I was doing that and I always wanted to go back. Sam Schmidt is always offered me to race in the my would never do an oval course or something but that's gone by the wayside but there's to last. I was very close to pulling the trigger on going to the mall and this year but then this stuff happened and help me despite not pull the trigger and then I will be doing various to car more than once. I got talked. I think I've lost my old spotter and Co writer. I don't think he's going to do the car with me. I don't trust as navigating enough. And he doesn't trust my driving enough so we definitely would not be a good out there anymore. But I'll definitely go do payers. Takhar in us to come. So you have your restrictor plate or superspeedway now racing. I guess we call it with the beard. Family is the. Are you going to try to add any road courses? I know you've already started kind of putting out the indy race. I'll look at that. Are you sticking to what I was thinking about trying to call up and go do that fairly road? Course at Indy. And now they're talking about double header with the indy cars. I mean I think that would be. I'm so excited. I'm more excited about that. Now that you have Roger Penske putting the INDYCAR series with the extremely series. I think that is awesome. I think that's going to be an amazing race weekend. I just don't know when it's going to happen so the hard part is saying. Yeah I WANNA go to a When we raised in that so I don't think I'll be able to race it. I just. I'm too busy but that is one. I am so looking forward to watching and I wish I could be an indy for that because that would be a really awesome just event to be APP. I remember when trucks in Indycar used to go side by side and that was fun so that use to be audit place in the nineties and early two thousands. I'm excited to have xfinity cars cars together. I think that's going to be really cool that we're trying to break that barrier between you have to like one or the other and both. Yeah that's always been crap that you have to like one or the other no. If you like racing race you may not like a certain type okay. So what but I still love racing. I don't care what I'm probably going to wash race all right. I want to give you this chance to brag on the beard family. You've been running the plate with them the last couple of years. I had a chance to meet Mrs Beard. Linda Lavin Year after that incredible. Run to make the five hundred so bread on them a little bit. I know they're just you know it's a husband and wife team. You've had so much fun racing for them and they're just good people. They've got their own little company out of Mount Pleasant Michigan. It's been around for a long time. They're great people with their daughter and their son run the company so it's a family business and we've got one employee with the coaching. Darren shop I made a big deal out at Daytona this year. How my Car? Chief works as a plumber and comes in when he can get off work for others company. I mean when you talk about the things I've done in my racing career. I've driven for Roger Penske German Furniture Children's dream for myself with a big organization to Germain family rusty walk. I'm done a lot of things driving hammer that as a smaller race team than my own. Winston West team was in nineteen ninety eight. This is the smallest race team I've ever driven for and I'm having the most fun they appreciate they love. They think this is amazing. I go back to the story of when we made the first five hundred. In two thousand seventeen the crew chief threw up after qualified in attract can for five minutes throwing because he couldn't believe we just made the race so you don't get those reactions anymore. It's fun and I think you're in the minority of those who actually enjoy running on the plate tracks. I do I do. It's more than just bruce. You can go back thirty years. Listen to Dale earnhardt senior. Call it a chess match. This ain't playing checkers chess. You have to put thought to it. Some of these kids don't put a lot of thought and they just put a lot of grungy to it but you know even then they're still chessmaster Wendell them and wonderful them when to get out of the way to go run and I've gotten good at that over the last five six seven years and I I enjoy the crap you brought up some of the team owners that you've had a chance to drive for you mentioned Rusty Wallace Richard. Children who I know you love competing over there. Roger Penske I mean the list goes on so there's no shame when you look at your career and just the names and the people that you've been able to be associated with NBA drove the racecars looked. Somebody asked me something the other day and we started going back just the NASCAR side. Not My off-road sponsors since I was little I order justice brothers distributorship. They were my first boss aroused teen and I ordered the ship of them. Now so somebody was asking me about the sponsors over my years and it took me A. I didn't think of it this way. You look at some of the names that spent money to put their name on me. Napa Auto Parts Kodak American ethanol's Jasper engines. There are so many that I had people tell me well. Don't you remember when you drove and I'm like Oh yeah international? You know forgot about that. I've been very fortunate that I've had a list of some amazing fortune. Five hundred companies and gigantic institutions. That that money for me go race. It was awesome. I had an amazing run at it. Not The dry for great people got to great sponsors. I you know I was lucky. I got lucky my star that team that we started with that. Little Orleans racing team was such a special deal that it started by Kurt. Off where there is only downhill from there of how special that team was. And you look at the guys that came from that team Shane Wilson. They're the team of guys from that racing. That have been in Nascar for twenty plus years. That are who's who of our have done everything and I'm still surrounded by I. Hell I even have employee number. One just moved back to Vegas to come work for me. Justice brothers and right now she had gone on. He's living with me but the team owners the sponsors the people. That's what I take a special. My career is just looking at all. These things wrapped up. I was really lucky man. I got great people. I was able to do a lot. What was it? Four of your eight truck win. Speaking of the truck series was at Texas on track own that place during a certain period. What was it about that race? Track that configuration. At that time and everything that you just took to listen if I answer that question I would have bottled. It never sold it and kept it never lost. Everything was just right the year before one people forget about drove for a little team called. Tko It was called Todd Kids Orphans. We used to joke about it. And on Texas Mr Ferris Little Bitty team Jamie mcmurray dry forum. I drove forum. A couple of other guys drove form and we finished second in a one in the forty one. Tko Dodge and it was like holy crap. I mean almost won the damn thing and there was something about the configure. I always liked the big tracks I was there was no mystery that I was not a big track guy but I was the guy back then. That wasn't afraid to run hot and nobody was there back then. Everybody was afraid of the outside. That was an era that nobody went to the outside. And I just I would get up at the outside of Texas and I got comfortable in there and hunker myself in my seat and that the whole reason goes back to those guys are talking about. We were team in. Vegas no distractions. Nobody knew what we were doing. Who WE WERE WE? We work together. We lived together. We ate together. We were a big unit and we just found a place that everything clicked for us. And you know I used to joke and say that not joke with my family's into horses rode horses growing up and my family owns bucking horses and Buchan bowls and we had a ranch twenty miles from the Texas Motor speedway for twenty years just down the road and brought Texas so I mean we always joke and say you know always cowboys know. That's why it works for us but one of those stories that was think it was my fourth win. We had gone to the back like four times in the race. Almost put a hole in a headlight started in the back. What was it yeah? We had to change engines and practice Mike. The story now is over here. That's that's employee number one and so we got back three times in the race and I come to believe past the entire field on the outside and I come on the radio and I'm seeing red eye of just blood up and and I called my spot and I go back man. That was the guy that sits next to me. By the way that was my spot my whole life. He wrote me opera cars with being. We've been together since I was fifteen. Then you tell everybody I want the outside and he laughed he goes Brennan the entire state of Texas. You want the fucking outside. You know yes. Everybody is aware of this. And you said we took the lead in the spotters. Dan even started clapping. Atom like was like. Wow it was special you ever forget the special days and I appreciate everything Texas ever did from Wyoming. I got more sports hall of fame and I even had time and come to dinner with me. I mean I real- cowboy that sexy motorsports all thing so that was special placement. I don't which I knew what it was. I would love Kelly to tell you. Oh we did it. Just everything was right. The team the guys the whole attitude. Everything was perfect. Fit Listening to you. Tell about how you down you go to the outside. It makes me wonder. Do you have one of those racing memories to where if you were to think of a certain race you can remember how the car fell what it was doing what you are thinking like. Can you pull moments? What rates you on so you again that I can remember when I was sixteen years old driving in the desert passing a cactus and remembering a feeling when we passed it in what was going on. I mean that's just what racers can do. And if I don't remember the feeling I literally I asked hurry the Guy. That's one everybody jokes and calls my personal historian name a year. Kelly and race. Well I was actually going to ask and you know. Hopefully we can have some fun with it but I was GONNA ask you. Do you still feel the same way you did during your interview after the two thousand three truck finale at Holmes well. Let's just name random race if I just picked any random race I can look at Harley and go no two thousand nine two thousand nine do more. Airbox doesn't answer what happened in that room and we didn't have to think about it. People are special to me. That's the work ever remember that. I told them to work on a project but he can remember two thousand nine. Well racing is very important. So o-3 homestay. I never really talk much about it. Not Because of Oh it's you know people don't really understand and I never really cared to set the record straight. There's a lot of things that went on that year that led to my anger and frustration after the race. But what people also don't know is I didn't know my name I don't remember any of that I don't remember the interview. I don't remember the race. I don't remember any. I took an extremely hard hit that day. That probably five inches further forward. I may not be sitting here able to tell the story and it was a big shock but do I still feel that way. Yes there are very few people that business and personal don't mix normally but when people mix personal business and do it intentionally to try to hurt you. That's where it's hard free anybody separate people don't realize that the Smith family and US go way back. We have been friends for forty years when his brother? Wendell broke his back in an off road race. I'm the one that dragged him out of the desert on the hood of my race car when his father Mr Smith? Dj Health two years after that we wouldn't let ultra motorsports theodore hotels. Mr Smith called me and said screw my son. We let me say and I said Mr Smith. You're always welcome to stay with us. Our families go way back and he was supposed to dry for Jimmy at one point you know so I mean. There's a whole lot of backstory size story front story that goes into it but at the end the wreck is what has upset. It was some of the actions that he took that whole year that he was embarrassed he was getting beat. He tried repeatedly to harm my racine and to harm me personally accusing of doing drugs accusing me of doing all sorts of things accused me of cheating and having traction control and he accused a lot of things that just he was getting and couldn't figure out why he was supposed to be the best dodge in the field and it wasn't him and at the end some things that I won't get into that were set on private phone calls. Some public phone calls. An accident happened. I never blamed Marta. Houston Mardi just got loose. It wasn't something that I could blame. Marty for isn't going to a quarter and say Aha. I think I can get the car ten car back right now and it the needle in a haystack. No he just happened but I was very frustrated with the actions that were taken to try to harm me personally out of the race car and in the end. Jimmy got what he wanted out of the situation and so no I I I believe in Karma and I believe that it came back two years later but you know what it is. What it is and honestly. I don't think about it until people to ask me about it. It's not one of those days in my life that I go. Oh what could have been? I still had a great career without that Yappy chipper with it would love to say. Don't give me wrong but it didn't really affect the trajectory of my life. My career change anything. I'd already been set them. I've learned long ago not to ask you about the what ifs and the regrets. Because you don't live like that it is what it is and it's done and over with and you've used to have always looked the positive side of things of your career. I tend to be more of an optimistic assessment. I I do see things often as I mean. I do believe that down by twenty two minutes ago we can still win a game. Yes but I mean look. There's too many negative things in life. Anyway especially now if you live pessimistic and negative now. Jesus Christ you're GonNa die of just misery so I don't do that in anything in and to that point. I've never heard you say a negative thing about somebody you've lived in for well. Also I've heard you disagree with some drivers on things played out but I'm talking like a team owner you've driven four and what I mean by that. Is You told me we had a chat? At the end of two thousand seventeen we were talking about some of your career highlights and you said particular when it came to that only fulltime copier that you ran. All that glitters is not gold. That was your quote but you never would quote was. All that glitters is bleak. But that's my point is that yeah. It was disappointing. It was frustrating. But you weren't going to take a dump on somebody in a no sense but that was a tough year knows absolutely tough year and once again thanks from the outside that people think they know that they don't know we're talking two thousand four and one of the race cars. I drove with the Banjo Matthews car. I haven't old. I drove Banjo Carson in the late nineties. That was when they were already old in the late nineties but Mr Penske personally never was bad. He worked hard for me. He gave me an opportunity. That was absolutely unbelievable. Some of my heroes allies were rick mears and Emerson Fittipaldi there. My father's friends my father race with Rick mears. We've known the FITTIPALDI's my whole life. I if I wanted to be an indycar driver growing up and Roger. Penske is like project penske cheeses he he you know He. He walked on water just about as much as Jesus Christ did. I mean when it comes to that stuff I mean. He is amazing. I got Dr Roger. Penske didn't work out the way I want it. No did I get a great opportunity there. No but I had an opportunity still more than most people and I probably could have had a chance to stay there but I live my life my way and I think most people would agree. Mr penske would smile when I say this Mr Pesky a surplus style white shirt slacks pressed and I think if anybody is known me long enough knows that I can live in that world. I can go to that world. I can be there but asking me to be there. Pretty much fulltime. Probably not going to happen so for me. It was a better move to move on for him. It was a better move for him to move on but I met Doug Bobble in Jasper engines people from that. Some of the greatest friends to this day in my life. I got the dry for Roger Penske and I can pick up my phone right now and call Roger Penske on his cellphone or wolves czarnecki. Who is even better? Anybody that knows right now. I Love Roger. But guess what Roger I love you whilst the main and print just like that because anybody that knows knows walls. Czarnecki is the main and I can call him right now and say hey Mr Pesky I need this and he will take my call and it's amazing that I can still do that to a man like that so I didn't burn that bridge. I never bridge. Nobody ever screwed me to some teams later on gets GRUDEN's career. Yes but nobody. But even. Then it's just the Martinis you find out the next ways you're going and you move on and make do with what you got. Have There Been Cup opportunities over the years that you had to evaluate where they'd be right for you? I had more options to drive. I drove the once again. I did the one year of premium the half a season with premium. A man of my word Jane gave each other a handshake deal j followed through and everything he said he would. It didn't work out the plans that we were trying to put in place did not work out and halfway through the year where we had our agreement we were able to say. Hey I'm good now thank you. I had options all over the years. I didn't care to have. I just wasn't GonNa make me happy just to drive a cup race here or there to go. I wanted to drive. I try to stay in the best equipment. I could everywhere. I went and dry for people that I wanted to dry for a like surrounding myself with people. You know people that I like. It probably hurt me but I don't care I still have fun. Nobody's ever accused you of not having fun. We just put that out there right now. I tend to enjoy life as much as possible more than some. It definitely is thinking back. You know there's been some good times a few more things so of course you eventually like we mentioned you get Payroll Richard. Go The xfinity series. Got Some wins layer. Had some fun. There made the playoffs. Did all this stuff was that just another thing where it was just right timing right people just everything clicked when you were over there at the end of eleven. I was honestly just like screw it up him. I can't get good rides. I haven't been able to prove anything lately in the vehicles. I'm getting Richard asking dry from for a few years and I spoke to him and Menards Wanted Racist Forum and the Manar family is an amazing family. And you know they want you to drive racecar for Mr Mark. You don't say no. It's kind of like Roger called me now said drive. You know. Say No but so I was like you know what I had an opportunity to say. Let's see if I could remake the career and see if I can use. I can't remember in two thousand twelve part time at eight extending races and truck race. I think Richard Game Four Cup races that year and wanted to see how I could do. I think in the eight xfinity races. I was five top. Fives something like that may earn. Koper awesome together. Went to the truck. Series was awesome in the truck series. It was like hey wait a second okay. Now I'm feeling good again. Then it was okay. Let's do a skit with Richard. Let's do this and he'd been asking me for years dry forum so it wasn't like I called him up and you've been saying come on finally over there and it worked out great and then I got reunited with shame which was the best years of my career. I've always been wishing Wilson and got rekindle and we won and we got to have great times again. We put the other great teams and I got to end on more on what I wanted. I was ready to retire one year. My Dad wasn't my dad. Wanted me to fire one year and I want to go then. I had a company that I wanted to get out there. I wanted a year to get some notoriety for my company but I got to go out more on with a smile on my no and then I got the added benefit of this out of left field beard family motorsports than hey so. I got to go out on a high note. Richard I got to leave higher. No with his beard deal and look. I can still win. I got a chance to win somebody. So don't put a pass this if they ever get raised again this year still got shots to win. I'm really glad you brought up. Your Dad. Mr Michael Gone because I remember having to write that story where he tried to retire. You a little bit early where he wanted you he. He was telling everybody you were going to be done. So the funny part was in two thousand fourteen. I won the two races. We got knocked at of course who knocked me out of the playoffs in two thousand fourteen. Harley my favorite driver in the World Kansas this one he's not gonna say but at the end of fourteen. I was like you know what I want. An xfinity series. I've one every theories I've ever raced. Except for one cup level of NASCAR. I want findlay series. It was great. I was ready to talk like you know what I'm done. I'm happy I'm good and my dad goes no. We're winning. How Shit Dad. Let's go and fifteen locked. Thank once again. I don't despair as many people Richard Richard Richard. Haass certain things over there kind of started going bad and fifteen. I'm like Oh shit. The added fifteen. It was like Oh dear God what the hell so I met with Richard Sixteen. It was like okay. We're doing that. We're changing some. Thanks so now on like Dat. No no we got new stuff coming sixteen. And he's like maybe you should retire now. No now I want to go. So we're like okay fine so it had sixteen and middle of sixteen. We both were like you're done and I was kinda thinking that way and then Richard Wolf blitzer seventeen starting sitting like shy and I'm like you know one more year still retirement year but typical lifestyles retirement year. But nobody knew except me in the team. We told the team at the start of that cease last week to cut member a lot of those guys that there would be a long time. You know some of them at that point eighteen years so I wanted to tell them then. It was my lack year. But I wasn't telling you I kind of hinted to you a few times probably more than other reporters that I don't flat out lie. I will literally just lie to you. I will just not answer the question directly so I've you put it together. Probably poor than most but that year was fun. Because let me have some retrospection. Let me go to places and go. I do hate this links or sorry Dennis Mar or to a man. I will miss this place you know. So let me kind of have that and that was fun on my own deal. Nobody was going to give me two and presence when I retire so so reasonably make some big bullshit deal out of it. It was just bullshit. No those are reserved for the grace for the gyms the Tony suggests. They're not GonNa do shit for me so I just wanted to have my own little. You know what I'm happen and I was I vividly remember. It was homestead where I was. It was almost like. I had to beat it out of you because I was like Brendan. I know what's going on. I know that this is family. Hadn't been to a race of six months by whole families there. Everybody's taking pictures off road before the rap. All the team members brought their family. That have been with me for all these years. Everyone there's by crew guys are trying. It's like no. We're not no. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah and then. I had my story ready by the end of the race. Because at that point it was kind of like well. Everybody knows but I remember. Yeah we were in the hall or I think that afternoon or the day before and I was like I know you could. You could tell me this is what I of. No you one other thing on your dad. How unique how special is it would to have that relationship where you're both involved in racing? It's his casino. That's on the car. He's trying to retire you. Sometimes you don't WanNa be retired. What is that relationship like so my family? My father. I have a very unique relationship. Suburb would probably over an old school. You're not old enough to have these types but the air above us had different relationships with their parents and we're on the winning side of in that sort of age group so he is always tougher on me then. He is others and his children. He's tough run but he and I always had an amusing deal when he's screaming at me. I know that he's telling me that he loves me. It's like Oh yes. I Love You too dad. But we've had so. Many coaster rides the closing of our team and how ugly that was to every time. I raised for other people that we didn't sponsor he would actually get mad and WANNA sponsored like I don't need it now owned Aminov are like I'm no I'm no. He can't handle not having some peace and could but then he's telling me he wants me out but then he tells me he wants me to go race then I go to say. I'm not raising. No I watch it. So we have an abusing relationship so this day it hasn't changed for me. I'm very fortunate because I've had a great close relationship super my father. I got to race one race with him ever and we want it together. The neural one thousand. My brother's got race with them. I didn't and I've raced with him once. And we won the nor one thousand overall and it was a great experience because I got to be with my dad and the race car and so I've been lucky I've got a great dad. I got a great family. I got a great mom. I got great brothers. Sisters NIECES NEPHEWS. Were all close for all tight but with dad. Yeah it's unique. Yeah I'm just GonNa keep this unique right now. 'cause it's it's unique. I got three more questions for big picture looking at Nascar being around as long as you have experiencing all three of the national divisions. Is there something memorable that stands out that you experienced or you saw or you heard or just the evolution of the sport what stands out when you think of all that you've been involved with all that you've seen being involved from beginning of the truck series? That's been really awesome knowing what happened to get off. Roaders the venables the Walker Evans. The scoop vessels these guys going to bill France and selling it to him and knowing that they were doing it watching the early trucks that Walker was building to the growth of that to being around to say I race long enough that know. Mr France used to come to racism. Watch that I know. I was in early successes for me personally. The Ninety eight Moteki Cup race. And you know some of these things were just watching. You know seeing the things that I was able to early but watched the whole progression of the safety and the point systems and all these things that have some people like some people dislike. You Never GonNa make people happy. I know which ones I like. Which was I. don't like but just watching. How hard guys like Mike l? Have worked knowing Mr Jim Francis as long as I have watching how hard he is work to do. Things and and the growth of two hundred thousand seats to contraction and Evan flow of our sport. It's amazing to watch these powerbrokers the Bruton Smith's in the market Smith's that I've been able to do business with for twenty years and to watch these powerbrokers move pieces and and the stuff that people don't get to see to see how people make these worked. It was something always paying attention to because I use it every day. My business lights and it was guy knew it was going to help me at some point not racing but everywhere else. I love watching those things. You mentioned business and that segues into my next question which was going to be. You won't be racing but who know you know you'll be plenty busy with businesses so for those that may not know those fans who don't know what all you have your hands in. Tell everybody what you're gonna be busy doing after the stockcar stuff is done or what you're doing now what's been done yet. Member is retired three years ago. So I I'm taking more and more active roles in the family. Business the south point and those things with my father and this tough times. It's been even more. I mean my father is an amazing amazing businessmen and to be able to watch firsthand Kim deal with a global crisis and see what he does what he does it. Take care of people. The stuffy does to try to help. My father is a very prominent businessman that has been on the phone with the president's and our state's government so that and they listen to him. It's amazing but to watch the thing he says and I listened to tell an advisor in Washington DC. I I listened to him to say something about something for employees and or fall businesses and hangs up the phone and I look at them and I go. You realize you just excluded yourself from getting any sort of health in what you're trying to help businesses. He Goes. Yeah a might. You excluded yourself. You said you can't get this out. He goes up. Those people need it and they're the ones that are our customers. They're the ones that we need to take care of anyway. And I'm like what you just exclude yourself work. I wear it's costing us a lot of money. Millions of dollars a day to have these buildings closed that it costs US personally and he didn't help us. We're going to help other people. It's amazing to watch because I personally I don't envy his position right now so for me. I go to these things meetings with them. He calls me into meetings for the first time. In my life he calls into them not just throws me out of them and still throws me out. Don't get me wrong. He invited me. I know and I watch him do these things. I shake my head and go why he can be so four thoughtful. That it's amazing to watch so I love doing that. I will be at the south point during those. I have are two casinos mosquito that I am on the Management Team of we get lucky we get to treat we watch my dad and the guy that we run it with Anthony. Tony his father and my father been partners forever so we get to look at our dads do it to Scott Mimic. Whatever they do so it's cheating but then. I have my three little companies. My City light shine which has NASCAR official. Mike Dolan is my distiller. We make a little moonshine right now. Little Tank company is not doing well when the bars were closed in Las. Vegas doesn't help me so that business is not well and then I have my justice brothers distributorship and that's one that I liked for fun because I love the justice family. They've separated by license on Fifteen Kelly. When I was fifteen years old I have pictures of me with a race car with justice. Brothers and their justice family still it. Ed and his daughters is now the justice sisters. But it's amazing what that family business is done since nineteen thirties. I love just being farther. History is fun for me. Once he got. I like to just make sure I have fun with stuff. And then I have my cleaning company new wave cleaning and that's the cleaning solutions and that's the one right. Now that is. I'm able to help Las Vegas get back. Oh I so disinfectant. Sanitizers of selling medical mass. I'm getting all these things that we can't get and I'm trying to find them all over the world and get them and get them to las. Vegas helped my town deal with this and get our town back open so people can feel safe so this is the one that I'm trying to take the stuff I learned from dad and I'm trying to apply myself and hopefully after all this is over I'll be able to take a breath and go holy shit but right now. I'm busier now than I was three months ago. And it's absolutely crazy that I am but we are working our tail off out here trying to work our way through this and it's definitely interesting times but that's where I'm at right now. All right last question and I know the answer to this but I'm asking for everybody. Who's GONNA listen to this all the fans who might want to know the question being? We still have to go back racing so you still have to get back in the car but when it's all said and done are you satisfied with your time in Nascar. Well look. I don't think Jeff Gordon would say dissatisfied with melting Jimmy Johnson's going to say he's satisfied with we can nitpick ourselves to death. Always say we could do. Better and mine is no exception. What I'm going to say is that I'll seal. I'm Frank Sinatra. I at my way and I am happy with the choices I made. You know me and you said correct. You've heard me say this will save for everybody else. I don't regret decisions. I may bad ones. I've made absolutely God awful horrible ones and I've made good ones that I've made great once you learn from the bad you. Duck your head from the absolutely horrendous and you try to keep the goods and the grace above those so I don't regret it. I love what I did. I love what I was able to accomplish. Do I wish I could accomplish more? Anybody says they didn't wish they could accomplish. Moore's lines you including Jimmy Johnson. So everybody wishes they could have won one more. May Day One more thing better but I am amazed that I spent twenty three years as for two. I never thought I spent a weekend and I made a great crew out of it. Made a lot of great friends made a lot of great people and am honored to say that I'm their friend and hopefully I left a little bit of an impact on. I'm honored to say I've gotten to cover a little bit of it and I've enjoyed getting to know you and everybody over there so I appreciate the time. Thank you anything for you miss crandall always appreciate you. If nothing else Brennan gone is always good for my ego. And I'm GonNa miss having him around the garage just for that in all seriousness. I can't say enough. He's a great guy and if you've ever seen at the track and have a chance to interact with him take it and you don't have to talk about racing talk about those businesses. He mentioned like city light. Shine pox moonshine or go. Visit South Point Hotel and casino. I'm not getting paid to say that. It really is a cool place and I very much enjoyed my visit. There last year during the playoffs.

"<music> hello and welcome to motormouth really good here with dale jarrett in our very special guest longtime nascar race director. David hoots is in the house us. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. We have a good time this afternoon this is i'm afraid i'm going to get called down here sometime today. That's how i feel. I'm i'm just watching what i'm going to say you can say anything. I don't have a tray like okay so nate. Ron did something for me and got this is a copy copy basically of a mass our rules and things in the rule book way get. You've you've read this. I assume at some point at some point in time is really stabile. Tar told me to ask you that by the way i had a limited involvement in a few rules book meeting. Yes sir okay and this is a few steve atar. Probably there's probably a long list that we've had conversations about and if it wasn't testing to find out my heredity or anything chick chick family say anything. This is exciting for me. Let's let's check out our starting grid before i cruise on by. We know that joe gibbs racing has been on a roll this year but can they lock outfit championship for in miami. That's a great question. Plus two races ago can appear bubble drivers battled apple their way back into a playoff spot and we want to hear what you have to say at the hashtag. Let me say this neat. Ryan's gonna be here later to talk about. This and i hope you guys have david. Who's here 'cause you can call and ask those questions that you've always wanted to ask director so give us a call. One eight four four aren't nascar n._b._c. That's eight four four nascar n._b._c. Share your thoughts on jayjay. Are the playoffs a whole lot more or perhaps yourself question. You say david various director. What do you think about this call. I want to know this is the most time i've ever spent with. David hoots officially because i don't typically get invited to the morning meetings. We would all you a lot of times on a golf cart. You always look like you're really working but i'm going to try not to be nervous because if you see david previously at racetrack you thought i hope i'm on the right side of whatever's about half and i invited myself to the meeting on friday dale really well. It did so that being said and <hes> david. Are you still watching the races at home as as close as you used to <hes> yes sir. I don't think i'll ever get out of that. I've i've had this his passion to watch the races over the years from a young child to now so i still enjoy them. I do watch them. Maybe watch more intently now from a different perspective. There's do enjoy them. How many years did you work with nascar. I it was an official for forty. Six years in different capacities started when he was five obviously yeah. When did you me. Oh gosh that would have been and longtime ago. Probably at hickory speedway would have been the first half seventies early eighties. Just i was getting my career. Kind of started. Really is hickory where you started. That's where you got kind of dove in there with with racing started it at the home track and weston at bowman gray and then as i worked my way up <unk> through we started branching out i was fortunate and i started going to different turing races and everything and and worked hickory speedway caraway speedway ryan bowman gray and expanded to more the original races throughout the southeast and at that time it was fairly much a southeasterly bay state store sport sure. Did you know that when you met him at hickory all those years ago that one day he was going to be now. There are two things that no had no idea really with that hat but i think at the time you were. You're working for u._p._s. Also at the time so <hes> then as things have it he goes to work for nascar and then in two thousand and one u._b._s. became my sponsor at robert gates racing so we had that income. I told him i said look at this on the side of my car. Now a few favorable calls on the way would be he didn't buy mine didn't buy into that good. Try by the book that's for sure. We're going to go to the phones. We're going to start. This is crazy. Is it carl carl awesome. I cars at nascar auto guys. What's up buddy. How you doing good <hes> let me just speak for motormouth nation. I know that's been talked a lot but take time to say once again. Dale family graduate okay motormouth nation thinking of yeah and <hes> with that being said said mr roots. Is there a particular race or particular moment from race that was that over your caribbean. Just wow that you'll never forget i think first off i echo the sentiment they'll juniors all right in in knowing what everybody does not just dale and his family but the travel it's it's concerning but i am glad that he's safe and doing well in back on a quick road to not necessarily recovery but settling down and getting his as life going that way i think there's many great moments and as i was trying to recap some things today. If you the different eras eras of the racing you can think through things that are exciting or whatever of some of them are probably a little closer to the action than i wanted to be. One comes comes to mind that when when we were up at martinsville and i was still working on the ground the great finish of geoff bodine dan richey evidence coming to the checkered flag and and don't recall who was up in the fence going just as fast as the driver on the car because at the time my position was on the start finish line and i felt the need to run over to the concession stand just as far away from the race track as these cars were coming to the start finish as line but if it was a great finish to watch that's one that comes to mind real real quickly and then some of the finishes at darlington of watching watching watching dale at michigan i think when his first race there and how close abou was there's so many of them it would be hard to recap them in our show. Oh well i mean obviously it's it's easy to to be a big fan of of dale jarrett's hall of famer and everything he's done and i know that you try to always be impartial now that you're you sit back and watch fan. Are there a couple of drivers that you say like all right. I am a fan of this person. I think fan because i respect what they can do what they're doing. Lord knows i didn't have the tedeschi or the wherewithal to do it or maybe two pragmatic nick to do what they do. A new that growing up i was somewhat white challenged and wade is everything race car but to watch what they could do with race car. You have half to have complete respect for every level of driver out. There doesn't matter the series what they're doing and what they're attempting to. I think those those are the ones. It's good good to see great stories like watching a diabetic detto run at bristol. It's good to see every man into underdog. Get a real good chance and and i'm sure that i was probably rooting more for him saturday night when i was watching that then then then danny and yeah no no it didn't have anything do sponsorship of the cars but watching stuff like that. It's good to see those yeah yeah. I agree used. I mean watching you in victory lane for the record that moment when he came up to the death i watched you and kyle also intently because it was such that respect that was shared in that moment and the way that you guys reached out to matt to me. It was really special. They had that moment with denny but for a hall of famer and for kyle petty to lean over and give a little piece of your heart sailing man that was huge to me. I love that yeah what a great moment that was i mean when when we seen the second place finisher and especially someone that was within eight laps of their first career win after learning just that week that if they weren't going to have that right anymore i mean so many things into that but this is just such a special time between two great competitors and to see you know danny was genuine anyone in everything that he was saying and doing i mean if he could go back and know that he's probably gonna win. Ten twelve more races you never know when that last winds come in and then he's gonna win a lot more but you have to do your job you have to do it but if he could have just he would have if he could adjust held back and say hey a man's hands done a great job here. Just just let him go but that's not what you do as a competitor discount do it but he knows that matt's going to get a something's gonna come his way and he'll be back in that position again. That's for sure. Let's go back to the phones. We're going to take a call from marvin blew up marvin how you doing buddy. I really good what which how how you doing dale and it's too with you goose <hes>. You're a great race director for nascar so it's not a cat with you search well. Thank you very much a appreciate the com but i would i would remind you all. It was not just one person doing this. Job is a team of officials directing race. That still holds true very much today that you're you're here in the race. Direct do a lot of the talking but it's truly a team effort and if they're doing in a good job you don't notice what they're doing and i think that was one of the things that we strive the most for that that we're not the show. The show is the cars and the drivers race. We're out out there to keep it moving on to maintain some low in order for sure martin what's on your mind betty. Women should lose <hes> my question to you is <hes> what do you miss the most about the race directive nascar and do you have a favorite for this weekend's races at road america and most port this weekend. I would say a couple of things. I enjoy doing what i was doing and to relate that was somewhat like my golf game. I it was it was we did a lot of things. During the course of the week that was work that was actually worked but this was this was my golf game <hes> and it was the close that i was ever going to get to compete it was it was somewhat my golfing. The other part of it is that i miss the relationships that you had at the race track whether it be with a competitor or somebody at the race track people that you have worked with and still work with in some cases for over thirty five years. It's one of the examples apples would be like a clay campbell and i still talk to him quite often but i remember when his grandfather had him around and around martinsville speedway at a a young age and these relationships that you don't hit two and then the other thing is to see the excitement of the great fans that follow the racing around there that they truly walk into these these racetracks and all just like. I did the first time that i walked into a big race track or or the first time you drive through the tunnel at daytona. I don't hear who you're you. Get a charge coming up out of that. How tunnel intern for and what in my world was somebody thinking when they built optus right. I think that's how a lot of people feel about this show so we're gonna take more your calls and a lot more david foods but there's news today for both expanding and truck series. That's that's next on motormouth and welcome back racing legend. Mario andretti will be honorary pace car driver for next month's playoff race on the road at charlotte motor speedway. How cool is that. Mario took a test drive on the wroval in two thousand seventeen and gave valuable feedback help make the track what it is today also in the news competition updates for next season in both the expanding and truck series expanding series field will be capped at thirty six cars. I also cup drivers with at least three years. Full-time experience will be capped at five starts in both xfinity and trots. Would we call that like the kyle busch rule or maybe we can come up with it but we can put it there but you know it's just changing that. There's one is for everybody. You know. I'm going to say this about mario. Andretti driving the pace. The field may have a tough time keeping up. That's all i can say. There's no man can still drive today. There's no question here. Are you surprised about a cabinet thirty six now. I think its time with that. You know we're seeing some some smaller fields and things and you know i. I like that idea i i i think it also probably gets in a position where we have <hes> you know where qualifying does matter of for some of that because now we're seeing where the fields are just that you know that number that that is is going to be so we may get worse knockout qualifying with some people going home sure and maybe maybe it means also. Maybe some of those smaller teams can combine actually do better are combining those forces and the other side of it is if we downsized the number of that we keep the person's the same up that then everybody's making a little bit more money with a smaller phil quality over quantity all right well. You guys are so exciting gave it. Hoots is here. We're going to go back to the phones. We've got bob on the line bob. What's on your mind. Hey gossipy got having a good night. <hes> my question is for all three you guys which bubble driver do you think to make the playoffs. I was hoping maybe chris butcher could make chris christophe great. He's been running really really well. I mean that team is performing at a higher level but you know for him to make it. It's obviously going to take a win dan but at this point i think clint boyer is is one even though he's sitting right outside now. I think that boyer for these next two races says even though it's been downhill slide void i think he puts it together and has a good race at darlington and indian finds himself back in the top sixteen david. What do you think you you. You got an eye on anybody. I think boyer gets it if they can eliminate some of their self induced mistakes. I'm leery with jimmy johnson making this crew chief change even though the work's done far out in advance. It's it's gonna be a quick turnaround to make that jail. Away needs to jail to jump into the into the playoffs. You know what i think. Jimmy's going to do it. I think jimmy i think jimmy johnson is going to show us what i just because there's some changes there some other things. I'm still oh a seven time champions right so me personally. I think he's going to go for it. Let's go back to the phones. We got tom on the line. Tom what's on your mind now. Y'all all how y'all doing. We are great buddy. Thank you you bet hang on a question for david hutson dan for you but first david who it's i'm a big fan of yours and and and what do you think about chase elliott's chances of winning the championship no offense i think well when we when we reset and starting to play playoffs. Everybody has the same chance. Some of them are somewhat handicapped but the point differentials if you're relying strictly on points but with the ability ability to win and advance to the next round it's to me pretty much ability to get in just don't wins and i could see that he could get on a hot streak a three or four wins and then the point start taking care of itself. The points are really a more of a safety factor for somebody then if you're really hot and winning in on three or four races that's the ticket that's that's a guaranteed win versus or get into homestead versus just points so and he's uh-huh showed up well in the playoffs. Every year thinks he's one of those big time drivers. Am i think he's i it's funny. When you watch chase there's because he's so kind of calm and cool cool. You can't ever tell like this. He's like more pumped up. He's always kinda just right down the middle. Where did he get that from weird. I don't know maybe and his dad or anything like that. Oh you mean that's the road america last year that philly. I saw rookie bill that we're going to mike on the line next. Mike you wanna talk about magneto yeah. Hey good to see you guys. You guys are awesome. <hes> you know how other series have the the blue flag for lab down cars. I kind of feel that ryan newman cost map padinha begnaud raise. What do you think so. That's a question that anytime people talk walkabout newman they talk about how hard he is to pass but if you phrase it like that i'll ask you dale did matt did did ryan newman cost matt venedetto the with yeah yeah. That's pure speculation. He certainly didn't help his chances. Because anytime you messed up the fenders inspecting the front fenders on these cars ours is going to make a difference in the way that it drives and so matt stated that his car got extremely tight after that contact so you have to think that he would have had a better chance at holding india off but we don't really know that answer. I don't know that newman did that much on. Would you like to see someone late in the race. Give the leader a little more more room than that but he was coming up on a lap car he was trying to not go down there so you know it's racing and it's hard and and you could just as easily say well. Matt could've seen ahead what was ahead of him. He could have backed out and and waited another another corner there but you know he's trying to keep denny hamlin behind him so wall right yeah. That's just unfortunately the way things happen sometimes known as a hard racer and you can't take that of against he's sitting inside the playoffs right now with a race car that really really not capable of being one the top sixteen. I mean if he was five laps down. It's a different call right. Totally i don't i don't don't recall whether he was a lap up down or not but if he was racing to stay in the leap more power to you because typically that's car would never give him the they would show them. The passing flagged but they expect him to race raced to stay in the lead larry and just one caution. He's caught back up his whole race changes. He's not trying to hold up man. He's trying to protect what he had yeah. He's eastern to your point. He's starting to fight for that plus. Here's the other thing about the crazy in speculation. When you look at race so one person could look at and say oh well maybe a cost math to win what we don't ohno's if matt had gotten around him easier and then the car in front of him loses a break in matt's out of the race totally so the weird like sliding doors effective life. Is that what you got sick. It was huge. Who knows what would happen but if i'm paying the driver to get every spotty. Can't we got a shot at the championship. I'd want ryan newman at the wheel and i don't care who's behind him. Coming up. Austin austin syndrich joins us as he gets set to race this weekend at road america. Stay with us <music> zippo. Two hundred austin center offered cetera now to the back of my in this is the first xfinity series wave what a turnaround for austin syndrich the wind last week and the poll this week at mid ohio see what he can do with field today by syndrich that is power so ooh he will not be denied that lee day ross's syndrich austin knife at mid ohio austin syndrich is going to try to make it three in a row on the road courses this saturday at road america here on n._b._c. He is kind enough to pay us a visit today austin. Thanks for joining us guys. Thanks for me so exciting yeah kind of a big deal. It is a huge way to road races in a row. Then then goes to bristol and wins the pole and narrowly escaped bush. I'm having to say that take. I'll take it and then you did one of those jedi mind nine tricks where you had an inch on either side of your car. I was terrifying in threaded needle how to good day to be wearing a white fire suit right totally not at all. I don't so how do you can you explain how it's time. You have to react to some downshift right about here. When i think twenty's going to go inside my race car that was yeah that was terrifying. <hes> thanks spiders. Forget me through that one but now that's that's. That's what happens at bristol. Sometimes there's a lot of good cars that get taken out and glad we weren't one of them. Can you feel that momentum from. I'm your team. When you come out winning two road course races then you go to bristle can can you feel that kind of excitement through them and no doubt it's. It's been really great for for a lot of reasons. Obviously obviously you know be able to win for team penske to be you know obviously locked in the playoffs. We're getting this very important playoff points heading into the head and in the playoffs this year. I'm gonna have more points. I've ever had nascar so no one knowing that we've got that going for it makes our lives easier in the coming months but also there's a lot of guys on that team that not only worked with of mean helped me from from marketing truck series days but there's three or four guys on my team that have never wanted nascar and had been in the sport for awhile and to be able to bring that with for them with my first win in the series you know all that compiled together is is really great for the team really for for obviously our momentum but then come back to the shop and feel that momentum feel everyone working harder to make sure next month's worth it. It's a big deal and we even have callers that are pumped about year. We're going to start with anthony on the line. You've got a question for austin. Go ahead. Yes i do and <hes> so austin. You and i are one must apart in age. There's nothing your next month but with that aside l. road america go for your third straight wealth win yeah i think i think we're gonna have pretty tough competition. Honestly <hes> you got guys okay. Gentlemen dinger obviously come back in the ten car. Matt di benedetto obviously had an amazing weekend last weekend. He'll be in the eighteen which has been great car and not obviously our sees regular. I think bells didn't really good job with the courses and <hes> but but our road course races always have some sort of a curve ball thrown at us. You know you got to be in the top five if you don't runoff the racetrack road america so i'm looking forward to it i it's it's gonna be fun. It's gonna be a dogfight and got got to have a blue-collar day to be there. At the end yeah the challenges orange of road america versus the two road courses that walking slanted mid ohio. What what do you face this weekend. One the tracks a lot longer so i think it plays different roles for the strategies you can play <hes> tired aggregations a lot longer but are a lot more but you can do more with with when you pay versus versus restarts stored in trying to dissipate those things and there's more passing zones american because you have the really big breaks owns a intern five candidates so i think there's more opportunities for a lot a lot of different things but there's fourteen of the racetrack so there's a lot more opportunity to screw it up at the same. Time is such an exciting race to watch. We're going to go back to the phones. Oh happy birthday anthony. Since you're a month apart <hes> james is our next caller james. What's on your mind. Hey good buddy good all right. <hes> i wanted to ask austin <hes> with the cubans watkins glen and mid ohio <hes> there's more confidence going into america's well the play offs for the xfinity yeah. I think it touched on earlier. The fact that we have playoff points in the bank <hes> not only from winning one race for two races ma- makes our playoffs offs a little easier knowing that we can you know have solid days and still but he'll move four but yeah i think i think it gives us momentum but at the same time there's different challenges salinger's between each race track the challenges we had watkins glen. Were you know trying to outrun the eighteen and then when the eighteen was gone. You know who's going to be mean a._j. To the end of the race and figuring out okay what strategy can can we do to to to try and flip things and then mid ohio where we say of a dominant car and we've got to play defense all day so trying to understand what strengths and weaknesses are at <hes> road american. Give it our best so no after you won at watkins land. You did something the next day there's a little bit different than what most drivers do as they enjoyed their first win. I i you actually spotted. Yes father cook right. I spotted for paul menard and the cuff race which was cool cool cool for those guys at least trust me to be able to do that but i promise you the first. It's three restarts of that cup race. I was in the i mean they pop out of the trees at the fastest part of the racetrack. Luckily them in our on the car. So it's the brightest car you can find it easy but i three restarts race for more nerve wracking for me than the last three laps them the xfinity race on the saturday before so it was a lot of fun. I actually had fun. The leader of the race went but it was a good experience for me for sure together for a row seat. A brake check with calvin bar made it a little more exciting. We've got another james on the line james. What's your question. Hey y'all doing <hes> at this is when it's at austin who was his inspiration <hes> starting career career. That's a great question james yes so i've been really lucky to be around a lot of different race car drivers in my life growing up around indycar side of things with my dad grown ronan guys like elio and jill farren and those guys being able to kind of be like like big brothers to me in some sense so in a way i really looked up to those guys and then once we moved to north carolina having someone like sam hornish getting the nascar stuff really got me thinking about oh nascar that'd be that'd be cool thing to try out or do so actually when i started racing i seventy seven all my cars because that was hornish number at the time but it's been really cool to to grow up around that that kind of an environment <hes> have someone like rick mears who goes to all the car races and and and he's been he's been really cool to have him back pocket. If i ever need advice or you know even just him. Send me a text saying good job last weekend. I mean that's that's rick mears sending attack gotcha awesome so to grow up around people like that it's been it's been a great opportunity for me and my career well. Thanks for being humane. Good luck this weekend. No pressure dale dale is going to be calling the race just a hall of famer. I hope so just kicks him but up there but <hes> whoever is there just be gentle when you pick them up on okay like your south south boston centric coming up more tales from the tower with today's guest david stay with a therrien this guy ooh ooh in this sport is built or rivalries and big moments in the twenty four out of his car. He's not happy so how do you make that decision to get involved or not to black flag somebody to penalize somebody in the heat of that battle. You have to look at it. Judge it on its own for that particular event independent on the different call. Summa calls are very much a black white call as far as the black flag goes the skiing carl edwards has been told take your car back to the garage. Put it on the truck and go home some of them that are that are questionable questionable depending on which side of the ledger would be on the body and earnhardt crystal in maine and really turn around made a rat's cage. Oh he never has taken. Anybody just happens that way. The team that's in race control gets together discuss. Is it very quickly and decides it makes the best decision they can. They're tough calls. A lot of them would beat with aggressive driving somewhat behavioral the the twentieth man kids can't take you nascar has said he will be parked where you make that call so that tough call that you know the driver's not gonna like. Do you feel like he gets over it or do you like that feeling lingers like nascar's out to getting i mean i think overtime they get over or they'll they'll. They will approach nascar. Do they completely get over. I doubt it but they have invested so much in that race. I wouldn't expect them to get up. I wouldn't want him. I wanna competitive moves to compete store man dan that helmet toss. Do you remember that like it was yesterday not yesterday but maybe the last week this exact david is here. That was some of whose tails it's it's so cool to see you explain to people how some of these processes work because i so many of us we i at least never had any idea. How things were you know. I would hear your old black. Flag is out and you go why what happened. Who did what it's cool. You guys are taking that time to help. The fans really understand well they. They need to understand their invested into it. As much as anybody sure <hes> and a lot of times over over your career they would just hear or see one part of it and instead instead of trying to convince them that you're wrong. Let's look at all the details then you tell me what you would do. Bastogne this verbiage or that verbiage or this procedure that and a lot of times after you walk them through what you were basing it on they had they had converted your way of thinking probably still not happy because usually involve their favorite driver corredor court or or their most say haiti but the was either move the property and we'll get to help us in a little bit it on proper english but i'll continue use my southern drawl house in that vein before it gets to the phones. I wanna know who came up with the phrase. Put it out. Actually it was in place place before i was in race control. The first one that i recall unit was built gazza way he was vice president of competition and before that he had been the the competition series director and had worked his way up bill was was a former marine and this was very direct put it out and and the way that he would he would say it in and i knew him but he would tell harold kiner all right i'll put it out and it was very slow but it was very delivered and and build a wonderful job doing what he was doing because he was coordinate and a lot of the race activities have now had been divided out. He was not only was he the race director. He was dispatching a safety equipment. Whatever it's not a india's position and it just it was multitasking to another degree yeah right saying that that slow you can run a half lap at bristol so things happened. Think of a few sides wreck happened. What about could you tell us and i know it's tough because there have been a lot of these guys who's the when you think about the biggest the pain in the butt either driver cruelty some of the you felt like i'm gonna have to tangle with this guy who who was it. I would say timber really some some of it may be that we had grown up in the same area and kinda head some of the same mindset which is probably stubborn in one way or another but tim was also very competitive sure and and that's the thing that you have to always go back on on some of these chiefs and they're very competitive and that's that is part of how you can have a passion for the sport that competitive nature. You don't want a a bunch of people out there. That's not intense and in doing what they're doing right. Good way to put it. Yeah exactly so you have like a favorite track that we went into or that you went to for so many years. I think honestly i have really three somewhat there the regional around on the north carolina area but bristol martinsville and darlington i look at darlington very similar to your walking into into a cathedral of racing like if you walked into fenway or lambofield in football or what this this is history you're you're you're not tap dancing around history your history and then the amount of time out spin up at martinsville in bristol. I have a tendency to like the short tracks. It's a little bit more. I think the intensity level is usually ramped up a little bit more and those to come to mind <hes> back in the day of love and even when dale was coup- his we were running four times at martinsville with the to triple headers with the with the modified and extended cars ars and the cane in series that were there along with the cup races there so we're going into march for that is another historical track that i think does a really fine job and when you look at it came on land the same time as darlington in forty eight so it's it's got the history it's it's it just doesn't have the notoriety of the massive tracks and then you you you take in watch how mr mr earls cut. His teeth did things that he was never gonna let it get behind the other tracks. There was a period of time that everybody was leaving the short tracks sure they can't doing everything they need to do to keep that track owned these the senior circuit if you will at the time and it was a show uh-huh place to boot plus the one thing and i hate to say this because i'm from north carolina but it seems to be like fans from virginia or true who true race fans they would come out and go into richmond when it be thirty two degrees right after daytona in what some show up or race their race immortal. They are great fans. They are really and you see that for the record. You still see that today when count our they're doing racing groups who denny hamlin. It's still true coming up our grassroots. Tour across america heads to a place. That's near and dear in my heart. That's right state of georgia state too my track. My roots home track is atlanta motor speedway. Just not the the big track. It's at quarter mile on the front straightaway. That's where iran my first real race so i was eleven years old. My father was going to run the legends car the band leroux series for the state of georgia. I had so many memories at atlanta speedway being race fan watching the nascar races coming into town. I mean that was such a highlight for me. The the best memories of her during the summer month race thirty forty times during that ten or twelve week period while we were out of school so just being around around the racetrack attracted outrace that the most <hes> in the state of georgia wasn't lanier speedway such a perfect three eighths mile short-track. It's got a beautiful grandstand. That's kind of said in a hillside almost than so. It's a really a neat little place. Send racing my legends car there before the late model. Show was always a big thrill. The great state of georgia is next on our fifty states in fifty days. Were visiting race with my old home. Track celebrating its fiftieth fiftieth anniversary this season its biggest race is the showdown. It's snowing in late september which draws over a hundred and fifty cars their local legend legend smith on the world outlaws late malls remember who's always there to help his fellow racer caller. Let's be honest another thing that makes it nice now. It's kaelin hailin. Clay surface makes great side by side action. Thank goodness klay again. We went asphalt. We're back yeah now. The thing about sonora raceway is at i live right by there and we would go and pull our truck up next to the fence and you take your friends out there. Go and watch and it to me. It is like going back in time because you can see truly. This is where all this racing started. Work comes from but you know you just don't get moments like that because raceway is really like that's where that's why people people know who bob apologist and watched him have the success there and take off all over the country and the watch that guy wheel is unbelievable. Have you ever been this raceway. No i haven't no i haven't but we can make a hug may call for the record. We can get you down there. I always loved the if i had it off. We get i could hear them practicing and then go out there because saturday night. You're like well. We ought to just go. I mean if i don't i won't hear the t._v. Anyway let's just go to the racetrack so and so cool to see david ragan. Go there and talk about out racing routes to me. I think is what's so great. Is that for for whoever it is you see that stuff so real for for you bowman gray sa- same thing you could hear the cars run from the house and at that point okay. It's dad give up. You're going to go over. There and both parents were great sports fans and it was convenient. It was a very very nice facility still is and it has these routes tate's carried on for years. I've been lucky this year. I've got up there a couple of times to watch it and and and i i enjoy the the the racing jason in entertainment and something happens. It'll recur this net now. They you'll say this is not supposed to happen. Does so you kind of expect the unexpected when you go into the stadium. I bet you do so for my track. My roots four is a single at bowman gray stadium. Burr myers won his tenth track title in the modified. I five division last weekend. He is a bad man behind the wheel hickory motor speedway where knowing pope competes is in the late model division care way raced speedway in sofia north carolina this saturday the track will celebrate its fifty four th anniversary. How cool is that big deal. I've i've never been there but i've always wanted to go to the careless now. Coming up nate ryan is going to be here with all of your viewer feedback. Let me say this is next. David is here. Don't go anywhere. You're let me say this. I'm gonna say this but i'm going to say this. Just let me say this but i'm gonna tell you but i'm telling you that i'm telling you that i'm telling you something i will. I'll say it forever that lead in david who laugh you guys great news may ryan to you know what that means. It's time for hashtag. Let me say this many questions for our guest david starting with james pickering to david he wants to know what was it like directing the daytona five hundred nineteen ninety eight when dale earnhardt win win when direct a monumental race like that and you're involved with in the official capacity. What's it like for you well you you you take all the races as they are that each one is important but i think the significance of that race is that when he comes down pit road after win it and the respect that the competitor shown this is the man yeah i mean that's the only way to say this. This is is this is a hard bunch to earn respect from but here's a guy that stuck with it through thick and thin won the race ace and then they had the opportunity. That's just never there really to show him that. Respect that that to me was was exciting the race all all rail you get excited about that was the real pinnacle of that race historic moment a lighthearted moment hashtag. Let me hey this is darrel ray. He's a avid listener of yours on the radio he wants to know where did your term jimmy jacking come from sometimes restarts and say stop this jimmy jacking and get these cars in line. We're thinking well. It was an effort for me not to use a several explicatives questioning some people's intelligence when they were trying to line up and whatever so i came up with that and then went back to nassau and said you know we need to put that in the rule book in the rulebook administrator at tama <hes> you're gonna love the definitional come up and it was the act or acts that made nascar race control but i didn't say it quite that way that's let's go ahead and put the the book and he kinda frowned it so that's a great question daryl yeah yeah. Thanks for that from texas motor speedway hashtag. Let me say this format matt coacher. He is i racing player and says that they would love to have you join them for an eye racing event and he any chance of put me out. Put it out <music> at a i racing of actually i got to do the initial one when they were held over charlotte. I was <hes> in the control room with i race into do that. In eighties. It's very simulated esteem simulation to what you're actually watching on the race and these guys are serious about as those that are or strapping in a car i mean they had the game faces own because they they did both types of gain sure i'm i'm not a big gidget gadget gone but they wanted to xbox playstation sure and they were they were into it and i sit there and was fortunate that they asked asked me to direct the first race that we went live on all right well. That's that's cool. That's those are also got one more for you. From at the nascar jeff i notices that the phrase put it out is still heard on nascar broadcasts. So is the inventor of said catchphrase. Do you like still hearing that as the current race director well a lot of times. I don't hear it because i'm not in a position to monitor that yeah i don't i know that there's ways to do that and <hes> <hes> it was it was done as much that semi slain term as to not allow people to the key in the radio network and arbitrarily caution so there was there was a catchphrase put in there that was just put it out instead of somebody getting on the radio back at the time when they weren't encrypted or security pool that they would get only and try to throw the l. put yellow and you knew that what they were trying to do and we stayed with this and it's just it's not like we sit in early piece. I would have to give the credit to bill gas way now. I don't know where he got it from but i would. I would love love half residuals off every time. I said these were really great. Thanks again from the the the viewers david. I'm not a gadget guy either but we've got cody on the line line who has great question cody. What's your question for david well well. I thank you for having me on the cell. I was just wondering how does dave how did you get into nisqually and what's the best piece of advice you've received and now keep in mind. There were about automated half off air. I go. I got into the racing at the stadium bob. Some what happened chance got introduced to a man that knew a man that i had sit there and scored the races in my mind as and a couple of times during the course the're they would have long distance races is and they would be making an announcement over the p._a. We need scores and we we will offset the cost of the ticket. If you'll come do it that got me in contact with the guy and here's a sixteen year old kid that ball rights at that time you couldn't get into the pits offered opportunity to go get into pits see heroes watch something that that he had a great passion for and going never in my wildest dreams that i figured i could make a career doing that and one thing led to another now moved up the ranks. Was it a career move. No it was just got. Get in there and see those guys when you go back look stadium. There's a history of something like sixty some people in the hall of fame. They have come through there and when i was there i was glenwood fan the david thanks for being with us today. This has been so awesome.

Here is the only man on the planet who can pack this much dirt slinging and tire slain into two hours a week sit back strap in and be prepared to get your ears glow. Here is Jim beaver and the downing dirty radio show, our by Polaris razor. Welcome to the down and dirty radio show, powered by Palermo's razor, Jim beaver here.

What what an awesome event, you get a lot of people go, why do you go to the GP? Why don't you go to the Indy? Five hundred. I've been any five hundred qualifying and such. And you know, the big thing is it's so big Mike anything around in Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We know. It's like it's a big deal. Right. You know, indi GP not quite as big as say the five hundred not even close to the five hundred but some of the other vents there. But you know, the big thing is is that a lot of media, don't go. They don't cover it. So if you're like me, and you're looking to get FaceTime with the drivers in the top drivers in the sport you go on the GP weekend. Because there's more time availability, there's less media. The it's a little bit more relaxed. Not that IndyCar weekend is relaxed, but it definitely is in comparison to the five hundred. So that's why we're able to knock out a bunch of interviews. Get some great content, and such so, yeah, you guys are going to see that today. But. I just love Indianapolis Motor Speedway. You know and got to give a big shout out to my good friend. Ravi fast too is spotter for Ganassi racing. Actually, Scott Dixon. Spotter invited me up on top of the pagoda. And you know, the pagoda it's it's one of those places you just don't get to go. Then matter what credentials you have you just don't get to go. But the truth is I was with Robbie fast who is a spot right in IndyCar, and he's been for a long time, and he's well respected. So he helped get me up on top of the pagoda. You gotta know somebody to get up there. And you know, he invited me up there. He wanted me to kind of get a feel for things check it all out. And I say you get up there. And it's absolutely insane view. You guys can see some of the pictures. You can see the entire track there, and especially for the GP. You can see it's best place to watch it. You know, it's funny too. Because you're up there. You don't realize you're protected right at the when you're at a race, right? But the snipers up there on top of the pagoda. Yes, snipers. It's one of those things. They don't advertise. It, you know, but you're up there and their snipers and you start thinking like, oh, wow. You know, and it's hidden in plain sight to their up there, and you can actually see them if you're really really looking. But you gotta really be looking, and I guess they'd never really looked before. But you know, you start thinking about it, and like a shot across the if there was somebody bad. They're right. It's like a you know what is apple Motor Speedway. It's a couple of miles around. So, you know, if you're going to take a shot from the pagoda all the way to like, turn number three or something like that? Man. That's probably a mile long shot. You know, you damn well better have a sniper. If you're gonna make that shot. Right. So I don't know. It was just on amazing amazing view up there. But put into perspective a lot of things. I bet you, you know, whether you're a football game or whatever you're at. I bet you there's there's there's snipers more often than not we don't think about it. But if you are a sniper, and you're listening the show. Thank you for what you do. It's nice to know that were protected, but the rap part was that was up there, you know, and Indies this weird place where legends just it's like you get the zombie hoard chasing people down. It's crazy like people will wait five hours to get a glimpse of driver. It's nuts. What happens it at the? Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And you've got a legend like Rick Mears, right guys. One any five hundred countless times one of the most accomplished IndyCar drivers ever. And he's now a spotter for Pinski. Right. And there was like why would he spot? Why get why he would spot because man get to hide out on top of the building with the best view and the place and. And you don't have to wait through all the crazy rabid fans. You know, but the best part one of my best parts of the weekend. I had a lot of great great times. And a lot of fun stuff. Happened had hit up saying elmo's. Yes. If you haven't been there, you definitely should it's the place to eat any Indianapolis. But anyways, stock with Rick Mears and Rick. You know, he's Baja champion. He's an offroad guy. Right. So I got chance to talk with him for like five ten minutes. Like, nobody around on top of the pagoda. Nobody bothered him and just talking about off road and Baja and he wanted to talk about his chin with buggies. And you don't he was it was funny because he was telling me like, you know, I've been reading on this new this new FOX's spin this electrically controlled suspension. And you know, and he's like, and he's like, you know, he's like these trophy trucks now. And you know, he knows I raise the trophy, Chuck, but he's like, you know, truck. She raced now he's like they've got this new technology coming in, but I know about but he's like it drops the truck down. So like if you're on a high speed section, or you know, are the greater roads or you're on a dry lake bed in Mexico. He's I dropped the truck like eleven inches. And he's I can that waits more dynamic, and he's like, you know, at handles better at speed, and you can go faster. And you know, he's telling me all this. And then goes because you realize what I am all class one channel with these like. Like, we didn't even have eleven inches to start with. He's like you guys are able to lose eleven inches and still have a good truck. How does that work? He's like we never had eleven inches to begin with these voted had eleven inches. He's like he's like life would have been so much better. And it was just funny. You know, hearing this IndyCar legend I'll see wanted to talk about off road. But truth is it was he made he made some valid points. But Rick Mears just. Oh, man, fun, fun fun guy to talk to you know, he just he loves offroad. You know, it's funny. You've got a guy like that. And he's still to this day keeps tabs on everything that's happening in the offer industry, which I think is something something really really RAD, you know. And but you know, you look at Jimmy Johnson. And he's he's falls a bunch offroad accounts. Right. I would say probably Rick Mears Jimmy Johnson, Robby, Gordon, probably the three most iconic guys to come out of offroad into into regular motor sport, or I guess traditional motor sport. And we all know Ravi sticks around. But yeah, you know, Jimmy Johnson. He's still, you know, he falls, you know, offroad accounts. Kyle Duke some of his some people, and you know, it's just it's interesting the way that works, man. You've you if you've ever been an offer driver. You know, you you you you can't leave it. You know, you always gotta come back. You're always thinking about it wanting to go back. You know, there's always some something drawn you back to support of road. It's kind of interesting the way that works. But yeah. In GP, fun fun time. I will talk about it more. You know, the rest is show. Obviously, we got Hinch Harda Sebastian board day. Some amazing amazing talented drivers on the show this week. And to look forward to those interviews, but yeah, we got a lot of segments. Lots of talk today, if you guys are just tuning in or, you know, just finally making way to the show or just flipping the dial in national syndication if you've got questions for me. I don't know. I know IndyCar we got first practices right now at any Annapolis Motor Speedway going on. I hear I'm watching Twitter as we speak. If you've got questions hit me up at Jim beaver fifteen, but yeah, I guess he'll Castaneda session number one already dropped a to twenty eight imprac. Wow. Where does that? Come from. Everybody starts out low to twenties works way up helium to Twenty-eight. Like, boom. I am here. I'm going for the poll this weekend. Bring it like, I don't know if there's not a statement running session number one at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway than to drop to twenty eight. I don't know what is statement by he'll Castro Neves, so crazy just mind blowing actually how fast that is. And how he was able to do that so ridiculously quick like, you know, that's something you might see later in the week people start approaching that. But like he's trimmed out ready role and nanny and find tune that car, man. Like is. He is he going to thirty like, wow. To twenty eight this early. So. Yeah. I know you're probably listen to this.

What's going to happen in this last episode on Sunday? I'm anxious to see the ratings. Right. We talking like it's not going to be Super Bowl ratings. But you'd think these are going to be like NFL style ratings are, you know, on TV like how many people twenty million thirty million? How many people are going to tune in to watch game of thrones? Finale, probably one of the biggest TV moments in history is coming out of Sunday. Like, you wonder what what the heck the viewership is going to be the love to see that number afterwards. You know, live streams and everything else. Like, it's gonna be insane anyways. Yeah. Moving on. We're gonna talk some more. Talk some more motor sports with that. Here's an interview that I did my good friend one of my favorite drivers in. The paddock always always a fun guy to talk to you always got a smile on his face ninety percent of the time anyways. But I'll just just a great great personality James Hinchcliffe with Schmidt Peterson motorsports. One of my favorites. Guys guy. I've got to know pretty well. And he's also got amazing podcast. Let's check it out. But here's inch down this past weekend at the GP. All right. So we're here with James Hinchcliffe. And I gotta tell you we we're already starting out in some kind of good mood today, buddy. It's race day for a guy. That's hacking up a lung all day all night and starting twentieth. I'm not quite sure why I'm in such a good mood racetrack. Let's go racing. Well, we're not just racetrack road any van V racetrack. So that being said man, you know, we got a lot of talk about GP Indy. Five hundred all that coming up. I mean last time I cut up sometime mid season last year. I mean, lots changed since then. I know I know this whole team was really excited about twenty nineteen kind of take us through the season. So far, I know it's kind of been up and down probably some of the results you guys didn't want. But I mean, you guys looking at twenty nine because I know momentum you guys hadn't twenty eighteen was insane. And looking to carry it into this year. And you know, you guys are still one of the premier teams. It's just, you know, take us through the season, thus far if we sums up in a word, it'd be solid, you know, it's not been exceptional in any in any stretch. But we haven't had a lot of things go our way we've had actually quite a few things work against us. But we kind of just keep ticking off these these solid results. And you know last year you talking with the momentum we had coming into may. We were fifteen points coming into may this year without that sort of hype behind we're six points. So it's you know, it's still a pretty solid start even with the problems that code again hit by Felix air and just not having yellows far away. Whatever it's been. So we still need that little bit of a little bit of something special to kinda get up there and fight with the big big guys day in and day L, but the teams executing pretty well across the board. And we need to keep our heads down on race days. Trang keep doing well. So that being said, obviously, we're here at the GP you're talking about qualifying not potentially going the way you wanted. You know, it's weird especially with GP because you know, you look at times, and I mean, it's such narrow margins here, man. I mean, it's you know, it's one one tenth of a second can drop you seven eight spots. Crazy, man, it's incredibly competitive. But you know, it's kind of been like that everywhere. It's just such a competitive year in the car series right now. And in qualifying we decent pace on blacks in practice. The reds. We just couldn't get him switched on. And like you say just a couple of tenths drops you down a bunch of spots. And it's unfortunate. Obviously Jack did a great job. Again, the fast ex, but you know, Andretti's made it out a q one three of the four Penske's in make it out of q one. It's it's it was a weird day yesterday. And we were kind of caught up in it wasn't that kind of some of IndyCar this year, though. It's like it's anybody's game any any particular track? Nobody's jumped out and said, hey, we're we're the team to beat. You know a thousand percent, you know, I mean, I think always Joseph and Alex great job through the first four races. But. Neither one of them. Are starting particularly great today. It'll be interesting to see how everybody executes this afternoon. But you're right. I mean, we've had different winters that every race. And it's just coming down to whoever executes the best on a Sunday because there are plenty of guys lined up to capitalize on any little mistake or weakness, you guys have. So we gotta talk a little bit about the Indy. Five hundred coming up in. I know I guess, you know, the ten thousand pound gorilla in the room is, you know, it's like, you know, you obviously didn't have the Indy. Five hundred you wanted last year. You know, it's how you protein this year little bit different after what you experience, you know, that's one of those things. No driver, ever wants to have to go through, you know. And you found yourself on the outside looking in. How you pro ching this month a little bit different. Honestly, I'm trying not to because if you start thinking too much about last you can get your own head and our team is as well and truly moved on from what happened in eighteen. We know what happened. We know why it happened. We've prepared ourselves as we would any month of may, you know, you go into the offseason, you you work harder. You try and find more places to find an advantage and find a bit of speed. And we did the same thing as everybody else will live in the field as well. But you know, this is a team that a couple of years ago we were on pole. So I don't think we need to change anything drastic. I think last year was a series of unfortunate events that all sort of came together in a perfect storm, and we're heading into this month as we approach every month heads down dedicated pushing ourselves pushing equipment, and we just want to try and. Start up front and obviously win this race. What you don't talking about India's first oval on on the calendar this year. No, your spouse, Phoenix or are various other ovals that come before this round. Does that affect you? Guys are going to the biggest race of the year. You know? And it's like you haven't you haven't had the car and oval spec aside from testing before Indy. I think so I mean, it certainly is going to affect, you know, the rookies more than anything it's going to be harder for Marcus than if we'd had know race beforehand, but at the same time, you know, he's shown shown you got pretty comfortable in the oval pretty quickly. So I don't think it'd be too big a deal. Obviously this one we get forty hours of practice compared to like three hours of practice everywhere else that we go. So I think it'll be I think it will be enough time for everybody to kind of blow the dust off and getting noble over form trim, and hopefully we can put on a good show for the fence. So it'd be said we're here at you know, the GP kicking off the entire month. I mean, you know, this one I know you talk with some other drivers. And it's like man, we just kind of wanna get through this to the NBA. Five hundred. But you know, that point you know, like you said every it's anybody's game. This year points are still up for grabs. I mean, how do you this race? And then, you know, and then, you know, moving forward the entire month. It's one of the biggest challenges we have honestly because you can't ignore the GP. It's still a race. They're still fifty points on the line. It's it's just as important as anywhere else that we go, and it's so easy to get distracted by the five hundred coming up and trying to switch focus a little bit too soon. That's one of the that. It's one of the big challenges for teams Andrew ever. So we've got we know where we are. We know what we've got coming up, but we're just trying to stay focused on today. We've got to get through today. We wanna head in to practice week with a little bit of momentum from from the GP, and hopefully we can pull that off. I gotta ask you. Now. The fun stuff. I know you guys had few weeks between you know, between Long Beach. And now the GP. I know you like get your podcast going on. I know last year you jumped into the water at the Long Beach aquarium. I mean, what saints been doing for fun the past couple of weeks Becky night and renovating the house, so I've been cleaning up stuff and opening boxes and moving furniture and just be very runs on even. Yeah, we're just basing been very domestic the last couple of weeks. It's been nice not traveling anywhere. But it's been far from relaxed. Let's put it that way. Sometimes you like craving I need to get back to the racetrack. I don't like this domestic that work getting back to work idle hands you like, no, I can't do this. Exactly. Right. Exactly. Right. All right. Well, I appreciate the time hands fan always fun catching up, and I guess I guess Hinch town is now Indianapolis this week. Right. We are. We are based at roughly sixteen the Georgetown for the next few weeks comes up by and say, Hello. All right. Thanks pleasure. All right. That was Hinch town James Hinchcliffe big up to my friends at S P M for and set that up and Hinch always fun having him on on the show. Never never disappoints. That's for sure. I one of my favorite personalities in the paddock. And now like I said, you actually, I mean if you're in new not just motor sport. But just podcast in general, like pop culture, whatever the the the podcast at and Rossy have is ridiculously good. I mean, like really really good definitely worth worth subscribing to the download they didn't not just like IndyCar talk. They do talk about any car. But they talk about pop culture and a bunch of other stuff. Like, it's become become one of my favorite podcasts worth worth the subscription over there on ITN's here a podcast person. You know, you can binge listen to them and things like that. So definitely definitely check that one out when if and when you have the chance, but yeah. So. Yeah. Hinch town things. I don't know. He had kind of an up and down run there at the at the GP, obviously alternately didn't quite work out the way he wanted them to. But I gotta say, you know, going into going into the Indy. Five hundred you gotta think, you know. He's definitely one of. I don't wanna call him a dark horse because you know, he's a guy you think about a lot. But I would say, you know, after what he went through last year. This guy is going to have a chip on his shoulder. He didn't wanna be that outside looking in type guy. Like, my guest is this guy is going to be on a mission. And he's going to be one of the guys to beat at Indy. This year. None of this bubble stuff. Like, I think he's gonna qualify in early. And he is definitely going to be a a threat to take the victory. I don't know if you'll be fast nine good. But I think that wouldn't surprise me if he was, but I think cancer is definitely wanted to watch is the next couple of weeks play out at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Definitely one of my picks to be a front runner in the month of may one way or another definitely definitely after last year outside know outside looking in he'd never want to be in that position again.

You're listening to the down dirty radio show, powered by Polaris razor. Oh killer and no filler. All right. Welcome back here to the down and dirty radio show, powered by police razor. And like I said man, we've we're knocking out of the park this week right here on the show. So this next signals able to actually catch up with a couple of drivers one. It's been a long time say interviewed one first time I've ever interviewed him. It's kind of like the legend in the rookie here in this next segment. But yeah, Colton her to taking the youngest driver to ever taken any car victory tick victory circuit of the Americas earlier this year, and then you got the Basham Boorda who is an absolute legend in motor sports as able to catch up with both of them about them fund interviews and looking forward to the future of Colton harder. This kid I mean, we've watched him through any lights and stuff like that become just as amazing amazing talented driver in definitely looking forward to seeing. What the future holds for him? So here's Colton hunter this past weekend out at the GP. All right. We've got to Colton Herta here who we're out here at the GP. And I gotta say you've got to be happy with the way things have been going so far. Click and practice one actually, but yeah, we were quickest and practice to get ready for qualifying here in a little bit not really changing that much if anything maybe just some some very very very fine tuning and and changing gears a little bit for for the conditions. Maybe but that's it. Well, let me and said, I know this is it's been an interesting year for you guys new team fresh start, and I know early on I think he kind of had everybody kinda watching because he just went to that first test circuited America's and you are ridiculously quick, you know, and then make everybody knew come into that race. You know, you wanna watch. And you went in and one that how how that feeling get your first IndyCar win and kind of get that that quick to get that monkey off your back. Yeah. It was really good. You know? Okay. Yeah. It was it was really good to like the monkey off the back. And and obviously, it's not something that was like dwelling on me. Like I had to do that moment in time because it was a it was third race in. So so, you know, obviously had a lot of second race in. Wasn't it second race of the year? Second race of the and yes, so you know, obviously in a rookie campaign. You don't expect to be doing that? Well that quick. And by no means was I expecting or the team expecting that of me. But you know, it's kind of like the perfect current events and everything just came came together. And it was you know, like a perfect day pitstops for great. This speed was there and even a little bit of luck. So having said we're moving in here. I mean, this is month of may. I know us, you know, you've been here before you know, in Indy lights and things like that growing up. You you know, you were here with your dad and things like that. I mean looking at things a year ago this weekend, you took the win here in Indy lights, you know, now fast forward a year, you're running in an IndyCar, you know, how how you perching this kind of kick off to the month of may and qualifying later today and just race weekend in general. Definitely laid back. You know, we had really good test here. So I kinda know that we can be quick if we get it. Right. But it is a very quick event. You know, today's Friday Saturday two practice sessions today, and we're getting into qualifying which which doesn't feel right. You know, feels like we should have a night sleep before we're getting qualifying. But. You know, obviously, it's a good thing that they do it for mother's day. But yeah, just a little laid back. Definitely don't want want this weekend to to get over looked for the five hundred or let the five hundred distract us from this weekend because we're still need points. And we still need to do. Well, and yeah, so taking taking it one day at a time. Well, maybe instead, I think that, you know, this is an interesting year because you know, talking about the five hundred you know, it's it's actually the first oval on the calendar. Most years you've got Phoenix you've got some oval, you know, to kind of prep yourself use a rookie coming in. I mean, the first one is the big one. How is that for you? You know what I mean? Because obviously you haven't been in one of these cars in old race quite yet. I mean, are you pro ching that just because there's going to be your first big over race in in car series? There's really no way to prep for it except for just get in. And do it you need to gain experience from driving and gaining screens in the car. Fortunately, we do have a lot of practice timing at two weeks of practice before the five hundred which will be able to run in behind cars and stuff and and get the feel the car between race trim and quality trim. So not really too worried about it. But definitely you know, maybe out laps in laps. That'll be some delay out for that. I might not have quite have the pace on quite yet. Something like that. I mean, obviously, you know, you're you got some veterans around you. But speaking of that, I mean, obviously, you've got your dad, you know, and he's been here. He's raised are things you rely on him where you can go and just pick his brain and ask him questions, you know, him and Allen to junior who works for the team time IndyCar winner two time. Sorry, thirty two time IndyCar winter two-time Indy. Five hundred winner. And he always knows a lot. My dad knows a lot too. Great sources to pick the brain, obviously, my dad's working for Marco who's been here number of times. I think it's eleven or twelve Indy. Five hundred so I'll be able to pick his reign of it as well. But yeah, plenty of resources for me is so that'd be said, I know you got some big announcements far sponsor, you know, a little bit little bit different look going into this weekend. You know, that's gotta have you guys excited. We got guest by gas on the car, and obviously a really excited to to have them on the car for only this weekend. But the rest of the year, and obviously they'll be primary for the rest of the year. And they're really doing great stuff. It's clean gas. And it's a bit of an alternative to fossil fuels. So, you know, it's something that's that's not only good for for us as team to the environment. So I'm all for it. So you know, all that being said, obviously, we're races into rookie season. I mean, you know, I think you had a good idea what to expect this year. I mean, anything that was unexpected as far as, you know, this, you know, the championship so far. No, not really I think once we got through the first round or two, and I kind of understood how the tires work throughout the race. And how the tire day happens. I think that helped me a lot. So so, yeah, I think once you kinda got through that face actually less surprises started coming up, and I got more comfortable attraction looking forward to outside of month of may. Detroit will be fun Toronto probably mostly foreign to Toronto. That's obviously a great event that a lot of people to and I loved racing on the streets. And I love the the city as well. So what's what's it gonna take for you to put it on the poll and then obviously on race day? You know, obviously come away. I guess would be considered back to back wins at the GP even though one lights one here. That's what's it gonna take to make this weekend. Victorious can take a lot of hard work. A lot of focus. I'm not for it though. And I know the teams up for it car's been great all weekend. So if he can just continue this trend, it's going to take a very good lap to get on poll. But I think we have the car to do it. But we'll just have to wait and see. All right. Well, thanks a lot. Good luck. Thank you. Yeah. So right there. We had half the rookie, which is interesting now, we're going to roll right into an interview with the legend Sebastian board. A all right. So we're out here in beach EP catching up with Sebastian board day. I know things you guys just come off the last practice for the race. Things seem to be working pretty good for you guys right now. Deceiving speech to pastors who put two sets of tyres we did. So I think we look a little bit. And we really are which just been struggling a little bit finding the right balance. But I mean, racist whole different animals. So we'll see we'll see how things shake out just trying to get a good result for that. Geico. Geico car well, never said this race in particular. No, you know, you've had you've been able to run up front here in the past. I mean, you know, what makes us, you know, this track is tough to pass easy to pass. I mean is this one, you know, you've started a little bit farther back. You know, you're gonna have a fight to the front. How how is it to move traffic here? Place to pass your thing with long straights. You can make moves and stuff. But you know, you always run other trimmed here and and stuff to stay close and get yourself. You'll put unity you you tend to hurt the tires re quickly as well. When when you're in traffic because you lose too much downforce. So it's usually not an easy easy place to pass. But. A lot of the times the gaps are so small between the cars this Renault that many corners. So. You you really try to do the best you can to make moves, but it's stuff. Stuff to Bassett car pretty much going Saint speed. You are so re as long as nobody qualifies seriously out of position. It becomes a pretty tricky deal fairly quickly. Well, never said, you know, you talked about, you know, this season, so far, you know, you guys aren't too far out of it in the points. She guys, you know, gathered some pretty good points. You know, this is the month of may this is kind of the kickoff. This is the one that everybody likes to get through and then get to Indy five hundred qualifying in that but a lot of points on the line. How do you how do you this race knowing that you've got the month of may coming up and qualifying next week in that one time? Yeah. It's it's this one's important. It's it's an event. And then you see next week. We're going we're going for. Qualifying and hopefully will will have the speed. Think home that has made you know, some serious gained. So police we show that you know, last year where Festus home and. We can stay that way. And and make little progress on one step at a time. We do that looking forward to a good results. And then in the five hundred is always the. The the peak of the the whole month. And I I don't know. I mean, it's going to be all depends so much on the weather you run the whole week, and you don't almost run the next week. And then you go racing. So a lot of things can change last year was obviously extremely hot which which made it really tricky five. Everybody's and made it Vivus daddy grace. So we'll just take this one go through the grand prix and switch switch focus for or the speedway. Well talking about the speedway. I know two years ago you had a great run going. And then we know about the accident last you had an amazing run. I mean when you're qualifying day one the most important get into that fast nine so you're locked in. And you know, then you can actually go and fight for position. But you don't have to worry about anything else. You know, being that we know there's thirty six cars this year and everything else you never know where you're going to be. But I mean, obviously going being the fastest one. Last year. You hope that you're gonna have enough speed to not reword about making the field. Then for sure if you feel like you gotta shot up the fuss nine you. You got to be, you know, put the foot down and really try very hard. Because first of all it's a security and then second now like you say you can start from from the the tip of the the great. So it's it's a big, plus, especially if it gets really hot, you don't have to deal with so much traffic. And we'll like I said, I mean, we we haven't really switched modes yet. But looking looking forward to it, and hopefully, we'll we'll have enough speed to to be a contender again. Well and use a driver IndyCar season starts off a little bit a little bit kinda slow. You know, it's you got race. And then a couple of weeks off race now in the stretch where you've got you know, GP you've got qualifying the five hundred you've got the Detroit double you've got Texas. I mean, it's a lot of pressure on a driver and a lot of focus. You gotta keep how do you approach this next five six weeks where you're just on the road and in the car all the time. Fluorescence even worse because it's eight weekends in the rose starting Metohija last week in the Ford. So yeah, desma Mon between Texas and road America. It's yeah. Weekend's right in a row. So it's it's a big stretch at something pretty accustomed do them. And it's been going on for a while now. So and nothing really new, but yeah, it it takes stole for sure. You just gotta make sure you you recover enough. And then you got your sleep, right? Then everything. But so so what we love doing so nothing nothing wrong with that. Well, looking at your career, obviously, you know, you've got you've gone and raced Formula one you've got, you know, you went four straight championships there and champ car. I mean, what would an Indy five hundred win. What would what would that be on Sebastian board as list of accomplishments doesn't matter who it is? It's it's the pinnacle of you'll carrier. And then you know, you you win that you in you in the twenty four overall, you know, it's it's those mystic legendary races. That just don't mean the same don't count the same as the others. So you don't even want to think too much about it. But you know, if. Whatever happens is going to be one of the greatest day you've ever had. So we let you go one last question. You know, you got the GP start here. You know, you're starting back their belief tenth. How do you press your first lap? Is it go time try, and you know, try and pass a couple of guys right off the bat and kind of make your way towards the front. You have to be aggressive. If you're not aggressive. You're gonna get hit. So you have to be on the move. Make sure you don't hit anybody. But. It's it's always a bit big of big funnel down turn one. So and then it continues going to turn seven two. So you have to be aggressive and control. All right. Well, thanks, a lots of bashing good luck today. Thank you. Sebastian Boorda this guy. It's one of those where every time I interview it's kind of humbling you look at this guy. He's run Formula one to four champ car championships there. I mean was a Newman Haas McDonald's sponsored car like this guy was legend won so many races. Still one of the fastest guys on the grid. And you know, he took those two years and went to Formula one. And you know, we've had this talk on the show before like, I think his accomplishments alone put him up with a great. But you know, he literally could have been the greatest of all time. I think if he wouldn't have gone and done that Formula one stint not that I disagree one one bit. You know, everybody wants this driver wants to be in Formula one. And you know, he can say he did that. But man, you gotta think like this guy is going to go down as one of the greats ever could have been the greatest, you know, if you would've stayed here in IndyCar, but you know, water under the bridge at this point Sebastian board.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by Palermo razor, Jim beaver along with Chris Leoni who was out at the Indianapolis GP with me this past weekend. Welcome to the show. Chris, I know you, and I both have some crazy crazy travel. I don't know. I didn't even tell you my full thing. I ended up spending the night in Indy. And then I ended up in Detroit. And then I ended up back in Phoenix at ten AM on Sunday. So yeah, it was an eventful years was eventful, and I were texting and about the time. I woke up on Sunday to get on my flight, you were still like driving home. Like, I don't know how our travel got so screwed up, dude. Yeah. Jim it which it was. I mean, I didn't get the bed until five thirty in the morning. I you know, I just had the power through for the most part by the time. We finally took off at two in the morning. I mean, we just had all sorts of screwing things going on. You know, I know there were whether issues down in Charlotte. That's where I connected, and then, you know, try to head back boss that I mean, we got delayed because there was such a backup. We got our gating two terminals over we finally get on the plane back out the plane, and they say, oh, the maintenance certificates expired says somebody's gotta come over and do that. And then they couldn't get anybody for forty five minutes. So we just got these tell with backing out, you know, and thinking we were ready to go. And then have the pullback in was not a great experience. Probably be shifting my line loyalty, but I'm not gonna say he names at this point. But jeez, what a what a mess that? Was you can't control the weather? There are some things that you can go and. I think one of them is offering things like when we didn't even get that. So what a what is that trying to get out of for both of us? But that doesn't take away from an amazing days that we have their audience -ly lot of interviews on this week and next week show with some of the sport's top drivers. So we've got plenty to be excited about we just had to go through hell and back to get home. Well, funny part about mine was not even being weather. So the real story was we had a plane. It was sitting there all along. We actually had a pilot and co-pilot who were in wherever the lounges that the pilots and co pilots hang out. We had everything they didn't have flight attendants. It couldn't get flight attendants for like five hours, and they ended up finally cancel the flight because it can get flight attendants. So it was weird. But in their defence literally this morning, I got hit with a full refund for my flight. So like, I can't my Bank account literally the money hit. So I'm like how bad can you complain? They actually gave me my money back. Didn't even argue nothing. You know? So I don't know I it was a bad weekend. But I'm like, you know, I'll give it another shot. They treated me, right. At least after the fact sounds like you didn't. But. They didn't treat you. Right. But anyways, we could we could talk airline horror stories all day long. But the thing about this weekend was there was some good racing across the board. I mean IndyCar phenomenal race. We'll get into that. Power rankings. It was weird this week. Chris. I mean, there there wasn't actually I mean NASCAR Formula one formula, drift IndyCar. But there wasn't like it wasn't a massive weekend. We didn't have any. We didn't have any offroad series running anything like that. But there were still some really really solid performances. Absolutely. I mean, the only other thing other than what you named was. You know w are seat was down in Philly. So we had we had some pretty intense racing action motor sports going on in on three different continents. So it kind of interesting because I mean, you think NASCAR Bacar have wanted kind of the big three for a lot of you know, certainly pavement motorsport fans here in America. And they were all an accident. But you know, we cover so much. We follow so much that for us. It's a light weekend for everybody else. It might be a huge weekend. But for us it, you know, we able to just sort of focus on four or five series instead of nine or ten you know, I mean once we get past Indianapolis that weekend. After is just you know, it is is motor sport Christmas. Everybody is an action that weekend. So compared to that. I mean, this is easy to keep track of I was able to watch everything Oprah album. Yeah. Well that being said, let's let's roll into things. Chris who who did you have at number five on your list? Well, on the fate of the end doc who isn't a fan of the underdog motor sports. And I gotta show some love to Jack Harvey over at mire sank racing. Michael shank work into get into IndyCar for years. Finally teamed up with us Schmidt Peterson you know, who are some of ours have race program. They put Jack Harvey and with see Jack rant a few races. Last year. He's got more than half the season schedule this year and Jackson breakout. We get made the fast six the first time had a great start to jump right into second. He's putting pressure on Dixon for the lead. I mean, I'm just surprised. You know, Scott Dixon, got thinking always going to be very hard drive to the past. But you know, I'm surprised with how strong they were that. I don't Jack really lead any laps regardless. Still got that first podium finish, you know, that's incredibly strong performance. More impressive that never driven it IndyCar in the wet before. So don't yet podium and do that in the rain. I mean, they they been talking broadcast about how Jack said, you know, I'm pretty capable rain driver. He absolutely proved that because if you go out, and you get a potent rain in a car that you've never driven the rain before you're doing something. No, I I completely agree with you there. And I've kind of around about way got Jack Harvey on my list, but we'll get to that in a minute. But no arguments phenomenal performance by him. I think one of the big things that I love about IndyCar is it's so competitive that team like Meyer shank that's part time can come in. And obviously, I've got a good partner team there with SPN IndyCar. But you know, I think it's it's says something where teams can come in. And they can do the work and they can be competitive. You know, how many times have we seen a team in Formula one come in? And you know, you just know you're just going to be a back marker for the rest of whatever, you know, and formula ones that weird anomaly, but even NASCAR it's hard. If you're one of those teams, the part time to come in and cracked, the top ten, and I think that's one thing that makes IndyCars specialist got a team like, you know, shake that can you know, they've obviously got a capable driver there. But you know, it's one of the things I really really love about about IndyCar but coming. In at number five on my list. Yes, I'm going to the NASCAR world. We had Brad Kozlowski who took the big win there at Kansas kind of surprise victory out of nowhere. But took his third victory on the season. Which now moves him into the top five points. Now granted I didn't get a chance to really watch that because I was stuck in the airport as this race was going on. But I did read quite a bit on the performance. I don't know if you were able to catch up on the end of the NASCAR race or anything like that. But I don't know it was it was a heck of a performance by 'cause Laskey kind of a surprise victory. Third on the season. He's got a lot of momentum right now moving back into this points points race and had have Brad Kozlowski at number five on my list. Chris. Jim I'm going to stay in the NASCAR world number four. But I'm actually picking the guy that he beat Alex Bowman. I mean, we've talked about in the house how power rankings are primarily the past seven days. But if you've got momentum's than it's gonna factor in and Alex Bowman has been the bridesmaids three weeks in a row. I mean, he is just pounding on the door of victory for Hendrick motor sports. You know, it's great. I'm sure for a lot of the longtime NASCAR fan to see the eighty eight back running towards the front. You know, obviously when Bill junior retired. That was a big blow the sport in terms of, you know, on-track personalities, but let the hates nickname bone in the show is pretty fitting for him because he's a real talented young driver that I win is just around the corner. I think and you know, it's it's a bummer that it didn't happen for this weekend in Kansas obvious because allow sqi cut the best of him late in the race. But you know, Alex Bowman is one of nascar's. Best bright young stars. And I think he's got some really big thing to head of them. I think that he is absolutely going to be a playoff driver this year. I'm not sure how far he's gonna make it. But I think he in that teams, you know, he and his team absence series potential. The Chevrolets seem to be turning it around a bit and catching up to the Fords. Toyotas. So you know, that I've up omen that number for because I see a lot of good things to come, and, you know, the past few weekends. He has been made the best. Dr getting just doesn't have that win to show for it tends to happen once in a while sometimes hottest driver isn't necessarily getting the winds, but you know, three second places in a row that's gonna keep you in the points race for sure. But for gets a mind number four it is time for us. Take a short commercial break.

Walk back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by Polaris razor, Jimmy recruits Leoni here a dissecting the weekend in motor sports. We both both got through our number five picks we moved into number four Chris has his number four pick in his power inking. Alex Bowman second place in winter Kansas this weekend and NASCAR. I am moving from my number four pick. And I'm thinking Chris may have him just a little bit higher up on his list than I possibly do. There was so many good performances this weekend. I've got Frederick Osmo your formula drift winter coming in at number four Oslo, I would say you look at the past. Path decade in formula d especially the past three to four years. He's been one of the most dominant if not the most dominant driver in FDA, and obviously that doesn't factor into our power endings. But I don't know what's going on at Papa dacas. They're always one of the premier teams. But he's just I don't know. He just hasn't been able to crack that win in in in a while now. And it's weird because he went on a binge there where it was like Osborne every single weekend. But Oslo back in the winter circle in formula d Atlanta, which I will note he had willan at every single track on the formula drift calendar up until this weekend. He had never taken a victory at Atlanta took the victory to Lanta moose him into second points. He's smack dab right in that points jas now, and he did beat in the final round Ryan Turku's, another good friend of mine. And that's where I was torn Chris like you've got Turkey. And you've got you know, Oswal in the final round like Turk hasn't won in quite a while either. It's like man, you're torn you got to your friends or they're doing. Battle in. You know, it's just it's interesting when that plays out, and if Turk would won he would have been in the same exact spot on my list as Frederick Otto. But gotta give a big shout out to Frederick Osmo for the big FD win. Lutely. Game. And I do have Frederick on my list, and we'll get to him a ni- end a little bit later. But one of the reasons why it's so easy for me to do pal rankings on Formula one besides the fact that the winners seemed to be more and more obvious than your everything that we can we go out is the fact that we don't have friends to worry about Neff one. And so putting Lewis Hamilton and number three is a pretty easy task for me Lewis and voluntary boathouse over at McLaren. I mean, Hamilton boathouse have been one to every single race this year for Mercedes. I say McLaren Mercedes, I'm I'm still out into ten years ago sometimes with raising. But Hamilton say what? Mcclair nam relevant awhile McLean fan here. But just saying I mean, we'll call spate of spayed here. I'm sorry. I'm excited about for Nando. So coming back to Indy with the glare. And I've obviously not that on my mind a little bit. But you know, those cars I'd silver anymore. So little slip up there. But yeah Lewis it handles Mercedes third win of the season out in Spain. You know, he's got the points lead. It's really going to be a battle between those two drivers. But one of the more interesting things I've seen is. I think we're getting back to the period of Mercedes dominance last year. They have four one two finishes between their drivers. And granted part of that was because both house had a pretty rough year. But now to start the season they are five for five on one probably sweets, and whether you like it, whether you hate it, whether it's entertainment value at all that's impressive in any form of motor sport. And so I've gotta get Pam. In my number three spot. You know, he's even admitted that it kinda gets a little when you don't have another team. That's right up there competing with you. Hopefully, whether it's for our red bull. Somebody gets figured out and starts really taking the fight back to the Mercedes team. But no for the meantime, every time that they take a victory. They've basically got to be a con on my collar ranking list unless it's just that much of a does race. Well, and you know, honestly, you're gonna make my number three very very easy because Lou Hamilton number three on my list is well so for once we are actually on the same page on something Chris, but yeah, Louis Hamilton, everything you said, I I'm looking at my notes and literally word for word. You took the words right out of my out of my mouth, you want a little bit farther into things, and I would have. But yeah. Third win the year points lead Spain Spain victory this weekend. I think the big thing for me is is. All roads lead to Monaco or two weeks out from the Monaco grand prix. And this is an event. The obviously Lou Hamilton is one before it's, you know, basically the Indy five hundred formula their biggest of the year. And I love this one because the race kind of plays. I don't know the qualifying is actually more important than the race in Monaco. And and for Formula one fans L understand that, but I really love, Monaco. But the track is so old, and you know, it's you know, there's just not a lot of passing room. Like there was you know, years and years and decades ago when the cars are smaller and things like that like I'm really excited about Monaco, mainly because I think Louis Hamilton has a chance to lose. And you know, I think, you know, read Buller for our or some, you know, one of the other teams could put together a really really solid qualifying running get up front somehow, someway, I think we may actually see this dominance that we've seen this year. I think you know, I think there might be a chink in the armor. So I'm very very excited about Monaco, especially about qualified and see how things play out now flu Hamilton gets a in Monaco. It's game over for everybody. But and I'm a Hamilton fan. I'm just saying like you you wanna see some competitiveness. Just like you said Hamilton said, hey, you know, I like, you know, having a competitive field. It's kind of boring to run away with things. So I don't know. I think Monaco is going to be a very very interesting one this year, Chris. Oh, no doubt. Jim speaking competitive fields. I told you we were coming back the Frederick house phone, he's my number two the FD failed. Now that OD buckets got knocked off the top spot Midland. It seems like the seasons really going to start to break wide open. You know, you had Turkey and you had James Dean. I believe Michael Esa was the fourth driver in the final four correct me if I'm wrong, but we started to get a little bit of a little bit of turnover in the top few spots from Atlanta now that we're into sees, you know, some of you know, some of these more prominent venues, I think that the top of the standings might get shaken up a little bit ody's got a pretty big lead right now, but I've definitely within striking distance. And you know, it's still early enough in the season that one bad run for anybody can really turn things over. But you know, credit the Frederick though, he is the winningest driver in the history, and he's just extended that Ma. Mark in Atlanta. It's gonna be really exciting to see him ODI. You know, James Dean, try to defend the title on and on and on there so evenly matched. And especially with being a judge sport. It is so hard to break out. So we'll be exciting to see how that even plays out. But yeah, I had those might number two. No arguments there, I think Oslo, you know, I think we're both going to have the same number one. And rightfully so I think everything below that was kind of a toss up at this point. But my my number two, I'm gonna do something. Interesting. Just because you know, you we talked about Formula one, you know, we've talked about a lot of different things today and throughout the year in motor sport. But I'm going to put it number two mainly because of the amazing race. We saw IndyCar number two and reason why is like, you know, you'd mentioned Jack Harvey in, you know, in what he did for shanking, the, you know, we we haven't even talked about the fourth place finish that Matisse least took for AJ Foyt, which is massive massive for J Foyt. To take that fourth place finish right off the podium. I mean, they like they said they're like this is a victory for our team. But the thing is when you've got guys like Harvey and least who, you know, an, and you know, he qualified I think back in twenty first in charged up to fourth. He was in for a podium spot. I gotta put into cars a whole because a lot of people go while they're not as fast as Formula one formula faster coda, well any cars slow their ridiculously fast, but they the competitiveness of IndyCar where it's anybody's game anybody can win on any given weekend. And if you're an eighteenth place car, and you you know, you put together a good event you have a shot at a top five and potentially a podium like to me. That's what makes IndyCar special. I think that's why the ratings are going up sponsors are getting involved. You know, if you you know, you can side by side, I don't care for your European, and you watch this show, and you know, you want Formula one to be the premier motor sport. It is a premier motorsport, but you could watch the race at the GP and the race of Barcelona side by side on your TV's. And I tell you what your eyes are going to be focused on the IndyCar race. Because the Formula one race is just going to be so dang boring. So I had any cars a whole at number two on my list because they had an amazing event this weekend at the GP are at Chris moving into number one. We've got looks like about two and a half minutes left. And I think what both probably on the same page of this one. Who do you have a number one? I'm pretty sure we are. And and you know, it's funny that you mentioned earlier that we were on the same page for number three and that never happened. But it happens a lot with us for number one. And it's because usually the driver who stands out the most over the weekend is just blatantly obvious. And we have to go into the team tends to camp. I think we have to give it to sign signing pageant out for that remark. Arquebuses drive that he had you know to win the Indy-Car free for the third time. He will power still the only drivers and six years have ever won that race. And they eat they divided them evenly three three and the most impressive thing to me about the wave pageant owed. Drove that race is the fact that he made all of those passes at the end with absolutely no push the past. Exactly it was. I mean, that's incredible. That's what the fact that. Yeah. Tracking count Scott Nixon like that budget, real you don't you don't out Dr Scott Birdman, you know, that's just one that you don't out Dr Scott Dixon. That's a given. Nobody can out Dr Scott Dixon. But yet we saw as you know out Dr Scott Dixon. Like, I was like what are we watching here Dixon does not get past? Hey, here's the one thing to remember house. You know was a sports car driver for quite a while. And he ran the mob. Prototypes with Peugeot and. And you know, driving those cars, you get pretty darn good. You know? And I mean, my understanding is that who's put their drivers through a lot of rain training. And so I like that is always going to excel the wet. But I mean watching pageant drive like that. I mean, I was a little young to be able to watch guy like Ayrton Senna, you know, driving the rain, but you've heard stories, you know, you see clips you may not have seen as it was happening. You know in real time. But you know, you hear the stories about it. You see things like that. I mean pageant odes drive in the wet this weekend is one of those rain drives that I'm gonna remember for the rest of my life. Yeah. No arguments by me on that for sure buddy.

Welcome back to the down and dirty radio show, powered by foot laris razor Jim beaver along. With Tiffany, stone hair. Just I don't got another one of our segments. I don't know. I was Mr. excitement this week in teast on you're just kind of parked on the couch at home, right? Pretty much. I went up to the lake got some stuff ready for the summer. You know, it's just getting everything cleaned up. And honestly, I kinda just chilled and did nothing I have three weekends off. So, you know, just as much as anybody else when you have those weekends off you kind of hold them near and dear to your heart, and you like tiny wanna do something. But I honestly don't wanna move. And so that's kind of what I did this past weekend. If you're like me, your home, and it's a weekend. You have absolutely nothing. Like don't get me wrong. We always have something to do. But if you're not like at a race or event or something like that. It's like something like I dunno. It's like, I I'm it's often my world. It's like it's like, whoa. What's going on here? Like, it's so weird. Like when your home on a weekend? It's like, okay. Now, what did I used to do like I can't remember over my hobbies Ackley? And so that was the case, of course, yesterday was mother's day and stuff. So I went to dim sum with my mom, and like I finally post about her today. And like, I don't know if that's a good signer of. Outside. It's like I was enjoying time. Hang Yeltsin mom, the idea the post about her. But then you get everybody who's on, you know, social media, and they're like, you're so in fun sedate, he didn't post about your mother. And like I was with the most of the day. Like, I think she knows what her and I care about her, and she doesn't even have Instagram social media. So how she going to Steve? You know, what it's funny too. 'cause like me, you know, we travel like, you're like me like, we have some of the most amazing people, we call friends people other people would say are celebrities, and this, and that, you know, like, I'm with these people a lot, and you know, what like my social media doesn't reflect that. Because like, here's these people that I'm, you know, I'm friends with and they're like influencers, I guess I ought to be like, hey, let's take a selfie together. Snap snap can throw it up on the Graham. Like, I guess I would probably get more followers that way. But to me, it's like these people my friends, I don't wanna make it awkward and the NBA. I didn't even think about that. So I get it like with your mom. You're just like, oh, I'm having a good time. And I'm enjoying the moment. Let's not ruin it with social media. Exactly. And so it's just you know, it's a catch twenty two because everybody's always like, well, how come you don't just like so my posting it for you or 'cause like I said, I'm just media hashing to sees any any of this. That's funny. I love your pictures of your mom, though. 'cause like like, I can tell like, she's I I don't know. Like me looking at them like I'll bet she's a firecracker. She's probably like very like common collected. But I bet she's got some spice to all. Right. I mean, I had half. Asian my mom is from Thailand. Do not do not. We all mentions deep down inside. We won't just just run choppy. Now, my mom, she's she's awesome. The older that I get you know, when you're like eighteen early twenties. Like, I don't wanna be like my parents. But then when you grow up, and you become our age kind of like, oh, okay. We'll let you understand. Why do this? And now hit why I'm so frustrated with, you know, little things my mom because I knew the same exact thing. It is funny. The way things like I've had people say that about me. And my dad, you know, as they get older and everything they're like man, you just like your dad. I'm like like, you know, at one point you would have been like hell, no. You know what I mean? Like, what are you talking about? I'm not like my dad now like certain things, and they say that I'm like, I take that as a compliment. You know what I mean? Like, I, you know. So it's like things like that. It comes full circle, you know. Exactly some that ten like he wanna tell me. I'm like, I will take that as a country and my mom's bad ass, the hope, and it's always so funny. 'cause you know, if he's not me, I'm I'm pretty tall for a female. I'm like five eight my dad's six one six two, but my mom is literally five foot. Maybe maybe four Levin. I'm not too sure. But she is a tiny person. And also if you've seen my Jeep in person, you also know it's lifted in its unbathed thirty five so I can't imagine how difficult it's going to be for her either. When I move up to the thirty seven or thirty nine or even push to forty she's gonna like the hardest time get in there. And like some guy was like, I think she needs to step stool, and like I think she does have to buy like an old beater like Ford, Focus or something like that. And like just like one that's got like three hundred thousand miles on it and just keep apart. But when you have to take your mom's somewhere. He roll out in the focus or something. No, well, I have my three hundred so my three hundred hours. I don't like life spectrum on carve yuko because like I grew up in Michigan. Okay. So I grew up in metro Detroit. But where I like kind of went to high school. We had dirt roads when I was growing up. Okay. So that kind of tells you kind of country in that aspect, and you know, miles far everywhere, I grew up on five acres. You know, we had a bar and all this other stuff. And then then I have another part of me that lives so close the metro Detroit that I like this little hood side of these folks like my I have a lifted Jeep and then lowered Chrysler three hundred twenty that's all black out. Yeah. You you're like completely. I don't know. What what do they call that with multiple personalities like which t stone? Are we going to get today? Vehicle. Schizophrenia. Exactly. So no. It was funny. Not funny. It sucked at the time. But went to the GP spent a couple of days in Indianapolis. And then it was supposed to fly out Saturday evening. Get to the get to the airport like right on time and all your planes delayed by fifteen minutes. I'm like big fifteen minutes. Right. Five hours later. We're sitting at the airport, and I'm sitting at the airport probably got a little bit of a buzz by then because what you do in the airport when you there for five hours you drink. And the pilots there the co pilots there in the plane is there, and it's been sitting there for like five hours, and they finally they cancel the flight. And all of us are going. We're looking at the plane. We're looking at the pilot what's going on come to find out. They had a flight attendant shortage. So yeah, there was no stewardesses. So they had to cancel our flight because of that. And then they go. Oh, yeah. By the way, since we've waited six hours to cancel this flight. We can't get you out Sunday. We're going to have to get you guys out on Monday. And I'm like so now mothers day everything's just shot. We spend the airport. I'm like new. So I go in that was American. So I go to Delta's website start looking and they had a flight like six AM to Detroit, and then had a layover for quite a while in Detroit and everything else. I'm like man if this just went worked out, right? I just wanna taking flight to Detroit on Saturday would win bought t stone dinner, we could hung out and then Sunday, flown Phoenix or something like totally screwed up, but wouldn't planning on the travel shenanigans shenanigans either. So but part of me is like us make it to Detroit and then. I know I got a friend there at least, you know. Well, and that's a good thing about like you're saying about traveling all over you have friends and all the most random places like if I wanted to go to Green Bay, I probably hang out the grease there. You know, I wanted to go to the northern UP. I could hang out the climate there and stuff, and it's just like the cool thing that you learned from hanging out or working or traveling and stuff, and I don't know it's kinda fun. But I've been on Fleiss before where they haven't had a flight attendant. And I'm like, okay, I've been on a flight in for Jim delayed for three hours because the overhead bin would not shut. They literally had to call somebody to come do that. And then they finally take it. I'm like, why don't we just take good way? What it was like it was like, well, it was crazy. It was like all the flight attendants. So I guess they were flying from Mike Boston to Charlotte Charlotte to Indy, and then they were going to fly from India to Phoenix. And the thing was is the flight attendants weren't actually active on those other flights. They were just trying to get them to Indy, and I guess the flights. I was just like it was complete. Like, I don't know. It was their logistics. Whoever did the logistics on that one should have been fired. It was not. But are by. Yeah. So yeah that was my weekend. But Indy GP was solid. Yes. Funny because we're in that stretch now. So I'm you know, I saw the Indy. But I know even talk about the drivers in this crazy stretch where I know they go to your neck of the woods, Detroit GP here in a couple of weeks right after five hundred for that double. And it's funny because everybody's like the drivers all look forward to that. They don't look forward to this. Stretch their on where it's like race after ace after ace. But it's funny because like multiple drivers like we're excited to go to Detroit. We're talking Indy. Five hundred and they're already kind of talking about the Detroit GP, I thought that was kinda interesting. Came something different, especially 'cause they do the delivery trait. So that's something that's a little bit different. And what kind of unique about it? Is you get to see two race, weekends and one? And it's on a road course. But we're technically on an island. The road is not like the pavement, obviously is not the best of the best. So it's a little different. You have to have a lot of like body straights to keep those calls like 'cause you know, you're. I Jim I wish you would have just called me because then I could've taken it abou- Lyle could've seen everything, but it's kinda cool different. And then there's so much hype for the Indy five hundred. But I also think that once they get to the Detroit grand prix that they know Indy. Five hundreds over the the dual over there's nothing more that you can do. And then you just continue about your seasons. One. It's what's weird like everything with any car like comes to complete pause in the month of may like may have the GP at Indy which I was at and the drivers kind of almost not even thinking about that thinking about the next two weeks of qualifying weekend in Indy. Five hundred like literally it's like the biggest Super Bowl the year smack dab like NASCAR has there's to start the year. You know, like most series have it like at one end or the other. You know, it's like indie carts. Like, no, we're gonna throw the big one writes smack in the middle off road thousand see end of the year Crandon. It's the end of the year like Indy cars the weird one where the biggest race years right in the middle. You know? So it's like thinking about points, but they're also thinking about this big epic win. And I think that's one thing that's kinda wild about India. It's the way that kinda always out and plays plays out. You know? No. And yeah, I guess I never really kind of thought about it in that aspect, but you're right NAT Carcelle starts off with the clash and the five hundred right in the beginning of the season, you know, even towards the end of NASCAR they have the chase. And so I guess that is kind of cool that you have such a big thing shooting, Bobby and such a huge following that. They're like, you know, what we're gonna see the best of the best of midway. But then then I guess that kind of helps you out to because you can kind of work and see what you need to change and see where you fall for points. But then going to like NHRA like since you're just an indie they're Super Bowl of of drag racing is during Labor Day weekend. So that's still in the like towards the end of their end of the season. They end November. But so you have September. That's kind of where they start re stacking everything, and then they wipe away the point from they start the point kind of cool to see that. Aspect as well. Yeah. Definitely definitely. So what's you got a couple of weeks off? And then what's what's next for you on the on the agenda? I go at the end of the month two air race. So we're going to Portland for the Oregon trolley or Oregon trail and trail rally we've been kind of cool an excited about a three day race. We start in Oregon go to Washington finish off in Oregon's kinda cool and going to Crandon for you know, the spring run and then back to area at the end of the month. So that's kind of what June entails for me. I don't know. I'm pretty busy too. I know I gotta go to Charlotte for Arca race and coke six hundred. And then. Yeah. And then I guess Crandon. I've got Lucas in Missouri. Don't know pretty repack few weeks to think there's one other benefit got about thrown in there too. Plus a wedding. I gotta go to so jeeze. We're. I don't know should be fun stretch worst Eastone. I know I'm excited. And I was just about to say you get dressed up. You're gonna like do Jones weird. I've actually got a few suits now. Like I last year. There was a there was like three weeks in a row, whereas in a suit for like a vents in like hosting like formal gigs for for motor sports and stuff like that. And so like, yeah. Now, I've actually got this whole suit collection. But I'm one of those weird guys like I wear them. So rarely I actually look forward to putting on a suit once in a while, you know, it's like play dress up if that makes any sense not that guys like to play dress up, but sometimes fun to get out of the genes and the hood he and like actually dress nice. You know? Oh my goodness. Yes. I do gin. I think I have an idea for fall credited. Why don't we like why don't I go to a banquet or something like that? Or maybe we could just dress up really nice and do my life show on. Just just so we can get dressed up or maybe cringe should hold like a fall, prom or some homecoming. Oh, that would be the homecoming dance. Oh, my that would be a redneck homecoming your something like you. And I like the better thing would be like you get in your like full-on ballgown. I get an tuxedo. And then we go literally to the middle Jurassic Park like the make it slip inside and do a live show from there, and like we're formal and then everybody else's like Nick, go down slipping slide to be a Larry's. Commentate from there and do our own life streak show. All right. Welcome to the live. X x x rated version of the down and dirty show about get down and dirty. Look at. Yeah. I I would love to. I wonder how that works like social media livestream and stuff like that. Like. The problem with make it slip inside is let's face it like the people, and I don't wanna be judgmental here. But generally, the guys and girls that are going down. The naked inside aren't the ones that you would actually really wanna see naked like. Way to put it. Be told. It's probably a lot more. They can do than than just like do. Volunteer like. Yeah. Pull it out. And Joe go down. There's like one girl that ten guys. Exactly, that's how you know. I've never been to have a su-. But I'm assuming have assume is kind of like that. It's just like all these like dudes like there's just one check or whatever. And we have something like that out here. It's called musket MU. And what they do is on the first Friday after the after summer so summer starts June twenty first the following Friday started out like two three to work at for took their like, huge big boats from out on Saint Clair shores or Saint Clair lake and all like started out at this island called musk and then just getting bigger and bigger and bigger. And that's literally what it is ask stripper poles, but it's not necessarily the girls that you would think would be strippers. No, please don't you are weird. Like that dude. Yeah. You wanna see my junk, I'll show you my junk girls a little bit more like even the wild ones. Bit more conserve like, hey, you got to earn a little bit least by me if you drink. You know, guys are just like immediately. Like, here's a joke. You know? It's just like, you know, like even the guys that shouldn't be proud of what they're packing. They're proud of it. Like, hey, check me out. You know? Like, okay. But you see those beams you see those memes, and the there's a mean going around of of guys in women when they look in the mirror and here like the mean is a guy that's like three hundred pounds looks in the mirror, and he sees like a guy that's one hundred eighty pounds of the six pack women look in the mirror, and here, they are like skinny as can be and they see this huge like woman in the mirror. You know what I mean? It's like, it's just funny. The way that you know, minds work because guys are so that way like you can see the guy that you know, they're just like they own it. Like, hey, check it out. You know, women are so. Some some of them are just all depends. We maybe we could do that. Maybe we can do the live alive down and dirty show from dress park, or at least filming at its and stuff and blur some things out so people who've never been there actually get what it is. And it is a fiftieth anniversary this year. So I'm assuming things are gonna get a little wild always thought that would be the fun thing too. And this is going way off the rails here, but like Nash like TV and stuff like rebel signature series or Matthew. You're whoever's doing TV like there's certain things like you want to showcase the the race. But they don't necessarily showcase the event, you might get a little over arching view of it. But if you like somebody, you know, like needs to go in and literally like, there's there's more to Crandon, you know, just like the Indy five hundred. They've got the snake pit and things like that. Like, there's more to these events. Like, I wanna go and see that I wanna see like the people signing. Everybody knows about the race. And and stuff like that. But like with Crandon man on a really like meet the people in what they're doing back in the woods and like like. I think that would be like epic YouTube stuff, even if you're blurring out or whatever, you know, like tell the real crane in store, you know, the stuff you get on TV. That's what we can do gin gin beaver and Tiffany stone. Getting that real real story for you, really like undercover reporting crane. So here we are. Nobody knows that's we're going gonna have this Bill like your phone, and hopefully, nobody noticed it we I guarantee you have all kinds of film crews volunteered to go with us too. So like. No, nobody after park. Oh my God. Djembe just got way off subject. But I know everybody's thinking about this. And they're like, yes. This is a good idea Kinsey to produce for us because you know, she knows like half the people in Jurassic Park, so Kinsey, Flannery, if you're listening, you're a producer. And our and our video refer and Tatan. You're just don't have cliff of anything that we've done or if I take the vehicle back out on the altar forechecking to give mean if we're doing that, I know Fokker, and then we should give should I give away band ride on the altar fortran gosh, you could do that. Like man, if you're going to Krant in like like post up you craziest picture pick one and take you for ride my Jeep or something you'd have people go like crazy over that. I know that is we should figure out something. We'll figure out something either way hopefully, your dad's and come back, and I can say that I drove them there of Parker around in my Jeep. No, he's already done deal. He's coming back. So he is there. So yeah. Alright. Teesta always fun fun catching up with you. And you know, and I guess we'll we'll be back next week.
