Yeah for sure Yeh, you said first year we had some Some issues trying to find the right sat up and we kinda just through a bunch of stuff based on what everybody said. And then last year we started halfway through the season I think we started really get some momentum, and then over the winter I'm just like you know what we gotta just take what we learned the last two years and start start fresh and don't go completely back to the drawing board, but take what we learned. The past two years and make a new vehicle and platform, and that you can see it it. It showed this first round here. Yeah well and I know. Manu was.

I mean this was I feel like this race was was stepped up a few from last year. Especially in the notoriety, just going on in the world I mean we'll go to the vibe there at the ground floor, ex. Yeah, for sure I think everybody was had. High expectations for R. and especially Champ Offroad being the new sanctioning body this year with The Midwest Short Course and champ really stepped it up. just with with everything. The marketing livestream the videos I mean it was just unbelievable all the the events and stuff that they had coming up to the race, and also the the whole event that they put on there at earwax. Yeah well. I WANNA. Talk a little bit about your car. 'cause you showed up and and. Sometimes we talk tires on the show other times. We don't this one. We're safe. Though because gentle tires got a family of brands that includes continental tire. WHO'S YOU'RE TIRED? It's all the same family all the same company, so we're allowed to talk about what you showed up to your ex with and I gotta tell you I'm watching the livestream and all of a sudden you pull up onto the stream and it was like shocking like. Like your Carla completely different than everybody else, and I go to your instagram and immediately see these pictures, this radical new hoosier illiteracy desert tire. You're telling me. It's a desert kind of stopped short course, but you saying that people there look like you're ready to go ultra four racing, but dude you gotTA. Tell me about this new tire in kind of a look in the stance of the car because you're a RS me, man. Yeah I think quite a few people kind of chuckled when we showed off, you're like what the heck is he doing like? The tires just way too big and We had our our Dallas and we were skeptical going in but just with the limited time with everything going on in the world and the new rules adopted around tires WHO's your had to pull out of their bag there at the last minute and it ended up just working awesome like we were all kind of in shock. We knew we did our homework dollar testing, but after the first qualifying event on Friday and We took fast time and to other drivers. They were running. The tires also took second third. It was kind of like. Wow, this. This is real, they we we actually are going to be. With us, so it was really cool, and just all the changes that we've made the car. lowering the C. G. and that was that was like number. One priority is lower the CG as much as we can. And I mean everything just seemed to work well together, We did do a lot of testing upfront, but we didn't have to go back to the drawing board. We just had it make little tweaks here and there and just the whole package just seemed to work awesome together. Well and honestly there's a lot of unknowns coming into the opening round. Obviously, we. We know you're going to be strong. Obviously, you know there's the guys Beichman. They're always strong. Obviously, you can't. You got to mention the Greaves, and and obviously there's a bunch of other racers that we all know are going to be fast and Kinda in the mix, but you know. Coming into new season, you really don't know anybody else bringing to the table. You kind of got an idea who might be quick, but you really don't know I mean it was a little bit of nerves in regards that obviously leaving Rx. Target on your back with the two one officially you know after his also done man i. mean you guys got to be stoked on on the way? Things shook out. Yeah, I'll be honest. We came into the season pretty nervous I mean I I was confident. I know I'm doing good I. I left the season last year. really good, really confident. We got the car work and good, but I mean this is even though. It's still an our. Lon-! It's We still didn't do anything radical, but we did quite a few changes that it. It's kind of a new car. And then we got. We throw the new tires into the mix and thirty inch tires that that and there's a lot of upcoming is coming in. And it was, it was a huge unknown I mean at one and I was like I. We got this and then at the other end. My buddies and Work people were like. Yeah, go out there and win and good. Luck like you're gonNA. Take the wind I'm like Oh, I hope so like I'll be happy. Be at the top five and like my main goes beyond the podium and I mean I never expected to be up front like I think. At the end of the day after day one. We got the confidence and. With a talked with the team, and it was like we really have a shot at winning this because our stuff was not perfect day one and I'm like we. We actually have a shot at this if we can make the tweaks and make this car. Perfect. Ethics, we actually have a shot, so I went into the bane. Leaving especially starting on pole that we got this it definitely was not easy as As you could see on the on the livestream or the recap video Jeremy who is coming strong. That's for sure. Yeah definitely, and that's kind the thing I mean. There's definitely no easy wins in any of the UT divisions in the Midwest I. Mean You want to talk about?

"Snow. The bundy's dared the federal government to try to stop them. They held daily press conferences to talk about how the government can't own land. But there were differences from the standoff in Nevada, two years earlier. Many townspeople didn't by the bundy's story. This time they posted signs across burns that said, militia, go home. They held meetings asking the sheriff to turn off the power to the refuge and let the bundy's freeze when the occupiers called for supplies. People from around the world sent boxes, sex toys, really. They called them y'all Kedah on social media vanilla ISIS. They spend a wish the way on all this hateful stuff to send out your choice. But the biggest difference between Oregon and Nevada is that this time shots are fired, and it happens on a remote Oregon highway twenty six days after the occupation started an informant tips off the feds that the bundy's and other leaders of the takeover are driving in two cars to a nearby town. They plan to hold a meeting in the next county over and see the sheriff who supported their cause. But on the way, federal and state law enforcement sets up roadblocks. Ammon Bundy gives up immediately. He gets out hands up as Oregon state police close in, but the people in the other Trump don't give up occupation spokesman, Robert lavar finicky is behind the wheel. He was once a model rancher paid his grazing fees to the federal government. But he converted to bundy's way of seeing things during bunkerville. So you do you damn well, please. I'm not going anywhere I am right there. You bet data. You give me now. Develop through me. What you're hearing is a video taken from inside finicky comes truck during that stock inside the truck with Finnigan was Ryan bunny an eighteen year old girl named Victoria, sharp, and the person shooting the video Shawna Cox. Depending on who you ask. What happens next is either an assassination attempt or justified police shooting at all. Never stopped should never have stop. Ryan bunny says they shouldn't have stopped lasers from rifles flash inside the truck officer shout to get out. It doesn't take long before finicky hits a breaking point. Down down. Steps on the gas. I shooting barrels around the curved road and when he gets through the roadblock, he swerves at the last minute, the vehicle narrowly misses an FBI agent. Truck crashes in the snow. And before the truck is fully stopped Finnigan leaps out. Someone fires, two shots that hit the truck. He stumbles through knee-deep snow, keep shouting. His hands are up at first. Then he reaches for his jacket, pocket inside is loaded handgun. He put his hands up again and he reaches hands up, reach. Finally, police do shoot him. He never managed to grab the gun. Apple. Too. Damn lands. Yeah. Damn. Why are they keep shooting. Bye. All of us. Back. Here's your stupid. Police were shooting balls of pepper spray. The voi- was bleeding out and snowbank on the side of the road. Law enforcement had been trying hard to avoid a shootout. They waited twenty six days for the bundy's to leave the compound and the roadblock was on an isolated road for the bundy's can call for backup. Within days a memorial popped up, we're Lavoix had died, and the Bundy crew were talking about it like an assassination. Who is the ultimate example of a tarantula government. Imminent Ryan Bundy were arrested at the roadblock and went to jail in Oregon. Cliven Bundy was arrested days later as he got off a flight in Portland, he was coming to help his sons. Instead, he was indicted on the list of charges stemming from the bunkerville standoff in Nevada. Prosecutors had been waiting two years to spring. This trap. It wasn't looking good for the bundy's. The Mao your occupation had led to a man's death and they were about to have to argue in front of a federal judge that the standoffs were justified because the federal government couldn't own state land.

NPR news I'm Noel king and I'm Rachel Martin Iran is issuing a warning of its own this morning a. Top Ronnie and military officials said, US threats against. Iran will draw, a quote strong unimaginable and regrettable response that's according to Iran's official ear not news. Agency, earlier this week the president President Trump how President Trump, that is tweeted that Iran risked dire consequences. Quote the likes of which few throughout history have suffered. Before if it makes, threats against the United States Bloomberg reporter goal NAR motivity is in Tehran joins us now a goal NAR what do regular run-ins make of the rhetoric that's escalating clearly on both sides I think naturally that quite worried I think most. Ordinary people are very, concerned I think there's a sense that the pink become slightly numb to what Donald Trump says or what his. Secretary of state says the rhetoric seemed quite quite repetitive and I think Because officials hit when they. Refer when they speak to Donald Trump may tend to been it'll him. And mock here because of that I think Iranians will Solana. Look at things such as the tweet, yesterday they don't know whether to take it serious or not either but the. Problem is at the, moment they feel that they are at. War with America in terms of, the economy so You know they look at the rhetoric and. They think okay the United States is waging. A war on our economy so it worries them but at the same. Time I think they're not sure how seriously to take it. As well they consider themselves at war, with the US when it comes to the economy I mean that's that's a. Provocative Well I should I should I should rephrase that what I meant to say was they consider the US having, waged or having started to engage in Iran in a war on its, economy and I think I think to some extent. US officials some, of them, have, have, heavy have even said. That you know they have been quite open. About, the fact that they want to choke Iran's oil exports, that they want to bring the severest most punitive economic some sanctions regime ever imposed on any country and officials here a, routinely referring, to it as a war on Iran's economy, so, ordinary Iranians you know they they they worried about this, they feel this and. It concerns them deeply well, let me ask you just briefly besides President Trump's tweets you're the. Speech by the secretary of state Mike Pompeo that you referenced over the weekend.

"I'm Noel king and I'm Rachel Martin leaders in Iran seemed. To be dismissing. President, Trump's. Threatening Sunday night tweet the head of Iran's judiciary? Described the comments as the quote words of? A, troublemaker the president tweeted that Iran risked dire consequences. Quote the likes of which few throughout. History have suffered before if it made threats against the United States. NPR's Peter Kenyon is following the story and joins us now good morning Peter, hi, Rachel how do you read Iran's. Response to President Trump, would, you consider this to be an escalation well it's it's the latest in rhetorical back and forth it's been going on since early may that's when President Trump pulled out of the twenty fifteen nuclear deal, these American sanctions that we lifted under, the agreement are now, coming back, banking sanctions come back in about two weeks then in early November US oil sanctions you're supposed to kick in Tehran's working with the other five countries in the deal still to try and keep trade Going not, clear, how successful that will be at. Iran's trying to portray the, US as isolated that's part of this back and forth but the rhetoric just keeps escalating as the return of sanctions gets nearer As you know I mean. The Trump administration pulled the? US, out of the Iran nuclear deal and really since then the US. Has been, pressuring other countries to stop importing Iranian oil there has, been, a development on this this morning what can you tell us well the. Latest response from Iran, has come from the foreign ministry spokesperson there says, if the US, does get serious about reducing Iran's oil exports secretary state. Pompeo is at the goal is to reduce it to zero, then the spokesperson says Ron will respond with what he, calls equal, countermeasures not entirely clear but that's probably a reference to. The strait, of Hormuz a lot of oil goes through there every day and again so far this, is at the level of. A threat not action but it certainly has the attention of world oil markets and meanwhile as some countries responding to US pressure are beginning to reduce their oil imports from Iran so so things are moving so. How do Iranians feel about the US. Right now if you talk about the fact that Iran is just it's Trying to make do trying to make the nuclear deal work, with the allies were left. In it and and to minimize the effect of the US withdrawal how do Iranians perceive the US in this moment Well a lot. Of Iranians are disappointed in the shift from the Obama administration which wanted to work with Iran and, the Trump administration which clearly does not, which wants to. Return to maximum pressure in hope of? Extracting concessions, it's the kind of language Iran's, hard liners understand perfectly in many ways despite their different starting points the Trump administration and, Iran's hard, liners I think alike. What, about more broadly throughout, the region I mean when you look at this now intensifying rhetoric between President Trump and members, of the of of Iran's government does make regional regional. Allies regional neighbours feel nervous well it does of course because you've got, support continuing for Washington from the strongest. To regional allies Israel and Saudi Arabia, and, varying degrees of concern and all the other countries it's not clear what they could do as this hostility keeps ramping up but obviously they're paying attention quite closely NPR's Peter. Kenyon for us this morning Peter thanks so much Thanks rachel Jury selection starts today in the case of an, FBI agent who's accused of lying and obstruction, of Justice the case centers around the two thousand and sixteen occupation of the malheur national.
