"Sport that common also sport magazine. I'm Martin Lee and this is the auto sport podcast. NASCAR has seen nothing like it. A final turn overtake by going round the outside and hitting the wall intentionally. It's something out of video games as our editor Charles Bradley said part inspiration part insanity. Even the driver said, his eggs were slightly scrambled afterwards if you haven't seen it Ross Chastain didn't even lift off. Didn't even break for turn three on the final lap of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Martinsville. Instead, he grabbed 5th, nailed the gas and went round the outside by using the wall to bounce off. Like I say, this is video game stuff. But had he practiced it had he thought about it in advance, will any driver want to do it again and is it even safe to do that if you pre meditate it? Let's get up to speed with motor sport dot com as primary NASCAR editor. Make the great Nick a probably a debut for you on the auto sport podcast. So welcome along. Yeah, it's cool to be here. I do believe this is my first time. So let's talk NASCAR because this is captivated the world. The clip's gone round the world many times. NASCAR is about entertainment. Let's face it. And this was the most entertaining thing a lot Fernando Alonso tweeted this is motor sports best moment of 2022. I've briefly introduced what happened there. This crazy intentional crash. Sort of. But can you just lay the table a little bit for us? Where were NASCAR right? For any of our fans that aren't following it week in week out. When NASCAR racing, what was the format of the race, you know, how many cars, what was at stake for finishing that high up? Can you let us know the background leading up to this event? Yeah, so after the first 26 races, NASCAR resets the championship for the top 16 people in points, sometimes it's not so much the guy with the most points. It's the guys with the wins and then they go buy points because winds get preferential treatment over playoff points, but once we get into the playoffs, they start chomping down the field. Every three races, down to 12, down to 8. And each round is three races, and this last race, the penultimate race of the 2022 season in Martinsville speedway a little half mile short track, that cut the field from 8 to four. And those final four get to battle for the championship this weekend. No points, highest finisher among them is the champion. So it's really the big one you need to get if you want to win this championship. It's the last step onto that final pedestal so you can really go for it and Ross Chastain in his first year as a NASCAR Cup Series winner and track house racing's first year as a fully autonomous racing organization. Have a chance to make it to the final four with the most established teams in NASCAR Penske Gibbs hunter and so on. And he's two points out on the final lap. Danny Hamlin, NASCAR veteran. He's never won the championship, though, one of the most successful drivers in history without a title, he's 5 positions of the road from Ross. And each position is one point. So Ross needs to pass two cars on the last lap. His spotter tells him that a screw chief tells him that. And they think, okay, he's going to send it off on the final corner, just run over people, because unfortunately we see a lot of that. At this point in the playoffs, people get very desperate and it can get massive. It can get dirty. But he found another way. He threw that thing against the wall like you said and let it ride. Wide open and made up 5 positions and made the final four is just incredible. It defies physics. I've seen some stuff afterwards saying that when he grabbed 5th a gear you wouldn't normally use on this track, he pulled 5G's in the first part of the corner at a 125 miles an hour easily the fastest ever lap by something like 1.8 or two seconds. And it worked. And he pulled it off, he intentionally sent it into the wall. Like, these cars are built tough. I couldn't believe what I was watching. He didn't spin, he didn't wreck, just it's something out of a video game and I'm sure if anyone listening hasn't seen it, they're going to go. And watch it right now. But let's get into what happened. So he and Hamlin are tied on points. He has to pull something off. Now, NASCAR drivers have spotters and he spotted tells him what I think I've tried to watch this in real time. He's unlike turn two or something where he spotted says, you need two spots here, because it all happens so quickly. Ross replies got to get him and the spotter says, yeah, gotta get him. Need two, and at that point, I think bell crosses the line to win. No one's talking about the winner, by the way, after this event. He had a great race too. What is his way to the 500? Nobody cares. No one cares. And he just absolutely full wide open hits the wall and rides it around the outside at speed. Phil Serge and the crew chief is immediately on the radio guy like that's ridiculous dude. You start to hear the other drivers Joey Logano goes holy bleep. Did you see that? Chase Briscoe says that's literally the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life. Now the opportunity to race for a championship with Logano Elliott and Belle looks 75 years of NASCAR is it next year? I can't think that anybody and I'm not the most hardcore NASCAR fan, but I can't think I've ever seen this before. But what I want to know is, has anyone tried it and failed before? Yeah, when you saw the NASCAR industry people on that last lap, they're genuine reaction. It tells you that's never successfully been done before, but it has been attempted. A few times, and I think the key here was the car itself because we've seen it in previous years, Kyle Larson, who ironically enough was kind of critical of it after the race, one of the only drivers

"Will be putting down some kind of penalty. Some kind of something for ty Gibbs. He's entitled he's entitled. Whether he's entire or not, I totally agree with you that I feel that should have been a suspension. I don't think he's going to be a conversation for years to come. And it's not going to be good. No, and so that's the thing. And it's so frustrating because I'm not saying it's a bad driver. He's a hell of a race car driver. The guy has talent. He just can not. The thing between the ears is the problem. Yeah. And it's just not being able to compose yourself in these kind of situations. And we've seen it several times already. And I don't know what it is about Martinsville that makes him just lose his marbles. But that's what happened earlier in the year too when he ended up just pounding his fists and the Sam Mayer's face, which there was no penalty for that either. So I don't know, man. It's very interesting. But ty Gibbs definitely he's going to have to rein it in at some point. And he's going to have to learn this. Because when he gets the Cup Series, these guys, they're not going to play around with that for anybody. He's been there most of the year. Well, once he starts doing these kind of things while going for wins in the Cup Series, he's going to have problems. It's not going to be a thing where they're going to just go, oh, that's all right. Thanks, buddy. They're not going to do that. It's going to be a thing. Just know I am restraining myself tremendously right now. Well, yeah, I know. You would be how will Jeff Burton was with Ross Chastain earlier? It would be that times 20 for you right now. I think with the name with the profile he has with the ability he's shown. He already has ten wins in the Xfinity series. At the age of 20, all time record for youngest to ten wins in the Xfinity series, he has to get it under control. You can be aggressive. You can make mistakes, but these aren't just aggressive mistakes. These are, I refuse to lose. Whether it be my teammate or not, and I'll crash the damn guy if I have to. And that's rubbing them, you know, nudge them, ponton it up the hill. That's one thing. Purposely turning your teammate for a

"I felt like we saw a little bit of the old Roche testing, who gives no quarter to anybody on the track. But this was, this was Pete Ross Chastain. This was when Justin Mark said, you know, we've got somebody in this car who wants it more than anybody else out there. And we'll rethink what is possible. That's what this was. I mean, again, like Martinsville has been around for 70 plus years, and no driver, I think, has attempted a movie like this, and I think we heard it in those snippets we just play from all the other contenders. I think if Ryan Blaney knew this would work, I think a chase Briscoe knew that this would work, they might have tried it, but Ross Chastain was unconventional. To come up with it first, and not just think of it first, but have the bravery and the wherewithal just to go for it. So a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about the move Bubba Wallace made and suspension and how it was going to perhaps affect or tarnish a great year and change how people look at bubba as a race car driver. What Ross Chastain did right there was completely I said it earlier to somebody. He kind of like reinvented himself. He'd been like baptized by the race fan, right? It doesn't matter who he hit. It doesn't matter what's happened this year. No one cares. If you have a beef with Ross Chastain and you decide to do something now, shame on you, you had your chance and you missed it because you know he did something amazing. He did something that reinvented it and you know what he did? Something that it didn't have any sort of victim already? Nobody got spun out. Nobody was wrong. Nobody was hit. He was vintage Ross Chastain, and if anyone has an issue with this, like he erased the entire year. Any blemishes on his record? They're easy example of that name is that he was literally booed at drivers introductions. Very roundly. I mean, the crowd hated him. And was opposite after the race. He was roundly cheered. The crowd cheered. He's gotta be like the most popular. He's gonna be the hero. Maybe if Denny had done this, not only is the advanced championship for, but his home state starts cheering him again. But I only give Danny credit though. We had some different opinions on this. The guy that I thought could easily have been pulling into looking at this as a negative, the first guy eliminated said props. He said, you know what? It was a good move. Hugely complimentary. And I think also this is a good story about not just the driver, but the team. I mean, track house is about as Justin marks has said time and again, being the disruptors, we're going to do things differently. We're going to come in here and be an elite championship team. Well, here they are. They've made the championship round against Penske against Hendrick against Gibbs, and they've done it in a way that people are going to talk about for years. I mean, yes, it was Ross Chastain who made the move, but he's been empowered to make that move because he's driving for track house. No doubt about it. We'd love to hear what you guys think at 8 four four NASCAR NBC, the phone lines are pretty well jam, but we'll start with Carson in North Carolina, Carson, what's your thought on the Ross Chastain move? Well, I appreciate y'all having me on. I have a very yesterday. Sitting in turn four and I saw a red streak shoot across the track. I thought somebody had gotten their revenge on him, but no, I turned to watch the race for the lead and come to find out that poetic justice had taken place and he passed everyone and knocked him out of the playoffs. So I guess my question for you guys is I heard some of the reactions from drivers up to the race. I got to give Danny some props to what he said. He could have easily been negative about it, but he said, well, executed. My guy Larson had some kind of lame sour grapes remarks about it. So I'm curious if you guys think they'll make a rule to try to prevent this. So that's the question. And thank you for the call, bud. So I think everyone sort of initially liked it. They thought it was cool, but I was talking to our buddy James Hinchcliffe last night in 8, and he did not like it very much. Kyle Larson didn't like it very much. Joey Logano didn't like it very much. Should there be a rule name? I think that they're going to have to address it before Phoenix TV, not just because of what drivers are saying, but just because of the way it looks. To Kyle Larson's point and he might be the one guy who didn't like it from the outset. I mean, he said it was embarrassing and that he made this move at Darlington last year where he tried to ride the wall and he was saying like if that inspired Ross Chastain to do this, then I wish I hadn't have done it that he felt like it puts NASCAR in a bad light. I think Logano thought like, hey, it's cool that Ross did that. I can appreciate that. I can respect that, but we can't be doing this every week. And we can't have it deciding a championship race at Phoenix this Sunday. So first of all, I'm fine if Larson didn't like it, I'm fine. I didn't like it a fine of drivers liked it. You know, I am of the opinion that drivers should have an opinion and I'm okay that they all don't agree. I also find a last car doesn't listen to any of them because they're the sanctioned body and they're going to have to do something. Right. So I have an opinion that it needs to be changed or addressed, not as much from an optics standpoint, but purely from a safety standpoint. Walls aren't designed for this. There's a crossover gate off turn four at Martinsville. This could have become very, very dangerous for both Ross, another competitor, even a fan, perhaps. And I think that this worked this time because a tremendous amount of skill, and because no one was expecting it. Well, just flip it. Same move that's expected in someone does throw a block. You're going to have a north of 100 mile an hour wreck at a short track. So there are some safety concerns. And I think NASCAR has an obligation to the drivers. We ask these drivers to do very tremendous things. Door to door Talladega for two and a half, three hours is kind of enough. This move, while I want to remind everybody, I'm celebrating it. It was spectacular. I am fine with us hedging our bets and saying, how do we eliminate it? Now, I will say near term, it might be as simple as we're not going to allow this. We're going to kind of try to reduce this. I do think longer though, as I pointed out, there are some things on the car that could be adjusted. We're just not having advantageous. That's the goal. Just make it where there's no advantage. May wear the driver doesn't want to do that. That's the best part because I don't like track limits and I don't like inbounds out of bounds, type calls.

"I continue to make the same mistakes and overdrive the corners and drive into guys. I had time under caution to get reset. And we go green and I drive in somebody. It's terrible. So your thoughts, Kyle Petty on the contrite Ross Chastain and what's kind of surprised me about this is he said all this almost proactively. Yes. And that's my theory. What do you make of that? Yeah, see, that's what I love about it, because listen, I don't believe it and I don't care. Because listen, to paraphrase Justin marks, I don't see where he did anything wrong. You know what I mean? This car, we have heard from every driver, every driver, you can drive it more aggressive and you have to be aggressive. You have to be aggressive to make things happen. Let's go back. Ross Chastain has been aggressive. Since he picked watermelons for a living. You know what I mean? He is always. He has shown us he has shown us so many times on the racetrack, aggression is where he comes from. And you know, even some of the stuff, the Danny thing, yeah, he might have gotten in the corner too hard. He might have run in there and hit him. And yeah, the thing with Chase, man chase was already wanted on the radio before they ever got into each other on that one. You know what I mean? And he stuck his nose in there. But man, you got to make it happen. That was a restart. And that's when you got every driver will tell you, you have to make something happen. So I loved what Ross did, because they came to him first. Now, I would have liked to have seen it if we could run back in class. Now let's go to Ross last. Yeah. And see if it's the same Roth's GSA. Because what he basically did, watching the race yesterday with Jamie little, and that interview was disarm the entire NASCAR community. Disarmed him. He took all their weapons away. He said, it's on me. I did it. It's me. I'm aggressive. I did this. I kept trying to make myself. I mean, he was so, so humble and the way he went about it. It was perfect and I'm thinking that deserves an Academy Award. He completely owned it. Yeah, he owned it. And so for me, it was, it was perfect. And listen, and that was wrong with me to say, I don't believe it, because he probably is in some way. He probably did. But listen, dude, he's got a couple of wins under his belt. He's kicking rear end. Yeah. Sorry, man. You know that? I'm just going to say sorry if I'm him. So would have been okay, do you think if he would have just said, look, this is what I've got to do to be good in this series. Listen, if he said, I drive my guts out. Joey Logano, I drive my guts out for my team every lap. I've got to make something happen. For my team and for my organization. That's what I do. And I am tired. I've read Twitter and I should never get on Twitter and read it. And I was listening to serious radio. Well, you know, at that point in time in the race, he doesn't need to be driving that hard. He doesn't need to be that aggressive. So he gets paid for. Yeah. So what he gets paid for, man. You know, that's like saying, you know, and that movie was good, but at that one part, at one point in the movie, that guy just quit acting. You know, he just he laid down on me. You know what I'm saying? I mean, you get paid to give it a 110% or a 100%. There is no such thing as a hundred and a 100%. All the time. You know what I mean? I got that's what he does. And you got to appreciate that. And listen, Justin marks backing him up. I think that speaks volumes. Yeah, and that's where I want to go next. The guy who does sign his paychecks is Justin marks, Justin talked to dust and log of NBC sports dot com after the race. And this is what Justin Mark said. Ross, pretty hard on himself. I mean, how do you look at well, I didn't hear I didn't hear what he said, obviously. I mean, honestly. I don't think there's a single thing Ross Chastain did.

And but what you've seen with Ross this year, I mean, you think about all the races leading up to Kota that he's had a shot to win at and Vegas he stood out. He's been really fast. Martinsville, you know, he was struggling early in the race and didn't qualify very well. I think he was like 27th, 28, maybe an old raw starts driving through the side of people early in the race to try to get to the front, especially with the long green flag runs that we were having, potentially might get lapped. Next thing you know, Ross is running inside the top 5. And never had a scratch on the car. So at the end of it is Ross still going to do what it takes to win the race. For sure. But to get to that point, I think it's a little different. And now that he's won, now that pressure is off of him, right? Because if you think about it, you know, he had the wins in the 42 car of the Xfinity series, then he goes to call gracing, he wins the one speedway race, but doesn't win the whole year that he's there full time. Goes to Ganassi and has some close runs, but never win. So the pressure is building up. He hadn't won a lot of races. Well, now here at track house, you see, it feels like it's his home. He's making it his race team. He's won two races now. Now that self pressure is like, okay, I'm gonna let it just release a little bit. Now I can just kind of believe in that I can win these races. And we're seeing it. And you know, I thought about it when I was trying to chase him down a coda. I thought, man, I might be trying to chase down the champion here. Because that's how strong he is and it's a credit to Justin marks and track house for the organization. Daniel Suarez is running just as well as just not winning. But we could be seeing a guy that, you know, maybe he's not your leading contender to win the championship, but like he's not, I wouldn't call him a dark horse anymore either. No, well, we're ten races in and there are two guys in cup with two victories, and that's William Byron and Ross Chastain. So I know it's really early to start talking playoffs and everything like that, but we're coming up on halfway through the regular season and he's got more playoff points than a lot of guys who are picking to make championship for. So you could see you could see a deep rent for him. And you think about look at all the racetracks that he's, you know, he's running well at all of them. It's not like now you can't say, well, yeah, I mean, you get to the role. He's going to struggle with the rover. So I hope he's got a lot of playoff points built up or he's got already got himself in the next round. No, he's a hell of a road course racer now too. He knows how to race at all these racetracks. He's super fast and now he's starting to get the idea of that confidence inside of, okay, I can just play these races out and I'm going to have a shot to win at any of them. So yeah, I mean, it really did stand out to me at code. I was like, man, he could be a champion this year. I might be trying to chase down one of the guys to win a championship, so I mean, he's doing a fantastic job, and so is that organization. Track house is really on its game. Also had a good run at Talladega, petty GMS, and Eric Jones, the driver, heartbreak, for Jones. He's leading on the last lap, and he regretted the way the final lap ended AJ. He had some regret that he tried to block Larson. He went high instead of just holding his line and letting Chastain push him. And.

"All the way out almost in the turn one wall on the way up the hill. Fair, fair. But Ross doesn't care. Right. And then he knows he's leaving the race and he got moved out of the way. Right. So let me ask it this way. Have the rules of engagement changed in the win and you're in playoff era, Jeff. Yes. That it's okay to move someone or even wreck someone for a win now. Yes, but it was okay a long time ago too. I mean, my date and I were talking on his podcast earlier. And I remember going to Sonoma knowing that if we got a late race caution, we were going to have a restart and it was going to be ugly. And it I remember saying publicly, it's embarrassing to be a cup driver, acting the way we act as Sonoma. And that was in the early 2000s. Mid 2000s. So it's nothing new. Late race restarts at restrictive light races, and row courses, chaos instances. I mean, nothing to me has changed. I know that this was a topic of debate on social media last night, Denny Hamlin posited that, hey, in 2017, this wasn't okay. But now it's okay. To me, it feels like since the playoffs started, the rules of engagement have changed. And maybe they're a little bit different now because you have a younger generation of drivers that has a different skill set and a different way that they were trained to race through bandoleros or dirt racing that's different than maybe the way Denny Hamlin was trained or the way Jeff Burton was trained. That to me is what's different. It's the ethics and how they're applied and executed. It's not the fact that guys have always said, hey, I'm going to knock somebody out of the way if it means getting a win, and now if it means getting a playoff birth. I raced against guys like Wayne Patterson and very, very early, and people like that, people that weren't fortunate enough to, and they'd move you out of the way. And that was in the 80s. I mean, think about short track racing in the 80s. What was great about the late model sportsman series? That high contact, move you out of the way. It's not new. The only thing that's different is the reward is bigger. So when they say to you, if you win a race, you're in the playoffs, you have a chance to win the championship. That tests your values. That test your morals. And everybody on pit road that came with you. Is warning you to do it is wanting you to win that race. And if you do, they know you know they got your back. But the rest of the garage area doesn't want you to do it. And you have a bit of a wide berth for that first win, but I disagree with you. I think people now race him differently moving forward. What did he do wrong? I don't know that he did anything, but he there's no doubt. He's a lightning rod. This is to follow him around. I think they would raise him differently if it wasn't accepted that this is his modus operandi for how he raises people. And so I think that this is an accepted part of doing business when you race against Ross Chastain. I don't think it changes Jeff's point. Did anyone think that he wasn't going to try to take out a jail mirror for all the bigger not going to decide? I mean, that's what we talked about that. I knew they were going to wreck each other. I just didn't know how and where. Right. Right. So I don't think that there will be severe repercussions for it might have been different if it was Mark Martin and he did that. And everybody was like, oh my gosh, now we're going to change the way we think about how we're going to race more and more, but not ros Chastain. So I guess that's my point, is that what would, so if Mark Martin got moved out of the way, what does he do? Why wouldn't he move to someone else out of the way? Because he wouldn't have started the fight, right. I mean, but.

"As hard of myself yesterday was not happy with where I put ourselves, the setup that I made for us. It's hard to drive. I had to drive in a certain way. My wife because she's got to put up with my whining every night about how bad I'm not, you know, I suck, so all these men and women here at car racing between the cup side of it and the Xfinity side of it. They don't sleep during the week. They're busting their tails. That's why I'm so freaking hard on myself sometimes because they deserve to win more than anybody here. And I just want to do it for him. So thankfully, we got one done today. I guess AJ was just a little bit better than I was. 'cause I felt like we had a really good car. It was certain spots that I thought he was a little better in us, but yeah, I mean, it just shows that we can run with AJ. He was just doing some things a little bit better than I was inside the cockpit. So we'll go back debrief and look it over and just see where I can be better as a driver on these road courses. Unfortunately, when you're a little bit loose, you know, a little bit of a bumper here and there really get you out of shape. And yeah, just didn't really have the confidence to really make the moves that I was need to there. It sucks to not get it done. I just tried to run clean and that's, you know, like, people can think what they want. Obviously, instead of the 11 M Martinsville and the head of the truck race yesterday, but generally I race people do clean for the most part and you know that race I didn't run into anybody and decided to get married and two guys running into each other and it didn't work out for me. So I'm not bad and I understand the 16 being mad. I understand the one doing what I did but we put on a hell of a show for the fans and I know the data that's all I've ever really mattered. Go up against some of the best with AJ I mean, I know he's gonna be upset with me but we race hard both of us and he owes me one, but when it comes to a cup win man I can't let that go down without a fight. I mean at the end of the day we all gotta look at ourselves in the mirror and be okay with it, you're okay with it. Each person's different, so I was doing everything I could do to try to swoop the weekend form we were that close, so you know, like I said at the end of the day, each person's gotta make the move that they're comfortable with and that's fine. Boy a lot to unpack there from the weekend at Kota AJ obviously winning Xfinity on Saturday and then being on the losing end of things on Sunday. Let's grab a quick phone call Dylan is on the line Dylan, what's on your mind? Hey guys, we had a wild finish up today with cross chef stain winning and AJ on the spring on the final apple as your thoughts on the finish. Jeff, I'll start with you, your thoughts on the finish and maybe to kind of amplify what Dylan said there. How about the way Ross won the race? Well, first of all, Ross needs to learn, you can't take it easy in a breaking zone or a rogue or even though you come into the checker. He opened the door. He needed to stay aggressive through turn 11 into turn 12. The race was over and all of a sudden, AJ's back to him..

"Of it practice and they feel fast. When they're busting off a 9 80 for just four tires, they're not waiting on fuel in practice. That's fast. And it's hard to calibrate my mind to take off in time. Two tires as fast as well was just a single lug nut. So really the thing, not here at Auto Club because we need tires way before we need gas, but throughout the year with low fall off and where the tires don't degrade a lot and we kind of stay the same speed we'll be waiting on fuel and that will be that would be hard because the tires will be done and it would be another two or three seconds we'll be waiting on the fuel to fill it. And they've kind of restricted that, right? Yeah, I don't know they've restricted it the cell itself is a little bigger so we have a little higher capacity so it just takes longer to put more gallons in. What about the buzz around NASCAR? Everything going into the season. It's more about it's not all about the car. It's just something about this season, the fans are excited. Everybody's excited. I mean, you guys got to deliver now, right? Yeah, we do. You know, I do, you know, I've been in the sport now. This is my 11th year and from the trucks to Xfinity to cup and I've just tried to be a sponge and watch these guys and these other racers that have been here way before me and have seen a lot of change and listen to what their thoughts and opinions are and what they see this as. You know, and I don't feel like if I go out on track and make a splash, that's one thing, but off track I just try to watch and learn and listen from these guys that have been here before me and to my heroes that are now my competitors. So, you know, we're all in, especially track house is all in on getting new people here. You see with the sponsors we have on, we're partnering with some big name people outside of NASCAR. It's not just we're looking for a company to put their name on it. We're looking to truly partner with somebody and bring in their fan base. So you see Dana White with a UFC and his howler hit brand at the clash and then even Longoria's brand with this tequila. You know, it's just it's more than just the product you see on the car. It's truly about the people that we're partnering with and what Justin marks and track house and Pitbull, they want to bring in people like minded that want to promote their brand and their industry. So we're diversifying in more ways than just race. And we're the first fying in our partnerships. All right. All right, his name Ross Chastain. Thanks so much for the time. And good luck out there.

"Still have the mirrors as well. The top looking out the rear and the passenger side and then I have the drivers a post mirror there where I crawl in. Kind of in front of my left hand. So beyond that, you know, the camera can't see everything, and it's also a piece of technology that we're not totally sure of. There's going to be some bugs, and somebody's going to fail, right? We break mirrors, some of my brakes are mirror every year. Or it comes loose or it breaks. It's going to be the same thing with the camera. It's either going to come loose out of the roof or the screen or something. We'll probably just have to turn it off, turn it back on, is how I fix most electronic things, but have the camera. I have the same seat. I have the same steering wheel. I have a lot of the same stuff for me. Touching me, but then like the pedals, the pedals are mounted on the floor. NASCAR pedals, gas brake and clutch have always hung from the top. So it's a totally different feel. Wow. You know, I've heard I've heard Kevin Harvick say, even the gas pedal is broken, and it's not broken. It's just mounted backwards and upside down from how we are used to. So what else do you see yourself having to get used to throughout the season? The right side of the car in the rear is definitely a different proportion to where I'm at, the rear quarter panels feel they are shorter. So going up and feeling where that right side is either next to the wall if we're trying to pack air here at Auto Club or just next to a car clearing ourselves we're all still getting acclimated. You know, so I'm sure you'll see some mistakes made. Thinking you're clear and you're really not. How does pit stop feel for you inside the car? I know it's drastically different on the outside of the car. Unfortunately, I've only had two pit stops this season in the duel and one in the 500 before we crash. So not a lot of not a lot of reps in race, but a lot of it practice and they feel fast. When they're busting off a 9 80 for just four tires, they're not waiting on fuel in practice. That's fast. And it's hard to calibrate my mind.

"Same mainly a group of people we brought on some new a few new people that logos. Well, yeah. Yeah, the ownership is different for sure, right? So with Justin and Pitbull, definitely a new breadth of life into this team and for what was the 42 is now the one team. You know, it's cool, man. It's really, it's different. It is. It's the same. Like I said, same hauler, same garage box, saved a lot of the same tools and a lot of same people, but we are we've got a different pepper step. It's cool. Now, Justin marks, obviously, in racing a long time. He's in the industry, all that stuff. You got to Pitbull. What's the, I mean, he's so high profile. What's it like to have him as a boss? He's a busy guy, so we don't get to see a lot of Armando. He's mister worldwide, right? He's all over the place. So, you know, it was cool that he got himself he's an integrated himself into the NASCAR circuit beyond just our team. He's playing tour dates to coincide with race dates and in market in the cities. So a lot of times the track is just outside of the big city but then he'll be playing in the city that Saturday night and then he opened this up in LA for the clash. So, you know, I really don't even know that we can measure what he brings to us and we hope we can bring stuff back to him. He's a car guy. So he just loves cars and he knows that the right with his diverse audience it likes his music and goes to his concerts. Their car people too. And he knows that and he wants to give them an avenue to NASCAR because he feels, you know, it feels like he does what he talks about is that it's not always been an open door for other people and other ethnicities that he feels like he can help bridge that gap and we can be the catalyst for that. So if somebody's not a race fan, no matter no matter where they're from or what they're past is, you know, they can hopefully see pit bull involved with track house and come and be a fan of ours and now it's up to us to go fast on the track. Yeah, absolutely. It was cool to see him at the coliseum performing and he's got the hat on. He's representing all that stuff. Yeah, I wish I was in that race, man. That was a humbling moment when I saw him performing. So we've heard a ton about the brand new race car, at least the exterior of it. How is it for you inside the car as a driver? Bumpy. Yeah, you know, we're figuring out these setups. So it's a new suspension new chassis. We have coil over springs where the shock at the inside of the spring. So, and then they're limiting how low we can go like the faster the car goes is going to be directly dictated off how low you have it. So NASCAR wants to keep us up off the ground a little bit and they do that with the shock absorbers with the shocks. And so they have a minimum length that they have to be so we bottom those out. So we could lower the car more here at Auto Club, but it's going to be really bumpy because you're going to be metal on metal with no suspension. We've got them lifted up off the ground to have mechanical grip and we hope that that's enough. How about inside creature comforts? Did you opt for the camera? Yes, yeah, everybody has a camera. Yeah, that's a oh, that's a game changer. I've got it in my Silverado, so I've been getting used to it for a few years. I still have the mirrors as well.

That's fine. I mean, it's like 98% at 1 p.m.. That's funny. So of course they're going to wash out all of the practice sessions. We'll get to test those drains, I guess. I guess we will have to see how good that does. Yeah, according to the track, they've got a nice Paris porous surface that's supposed to drain the fluid downward and that's how it gets into those. Well, you'll get to see that in action, I guess. We will definitely see. I am so excited. Well, good. Thank you. Thank you for looking up the forecast. Sorry about that. Hey, please it's just Friday though. Kurt Busch, well, I didn't look up Saturday, so I don't know. Kurt Busch won this race in July and Ryan Blaney won the spring race, but obviously, I mean, none of that matters. Yeah, it really doesn't. We're gonna do drivers awesome at Atlanta. And that's basically meaningless because everything's new. Yeah, but let's go ahead and do it anyway. Just for the sheer, why not? Drivers, awesome, at Atlanta. Previous configuration. Ryan Blaney has a win three top 5s and three top tens, which are one and the same, I guess. Yep. Denny Hamlin, who has had no luck this year. No top ten.

So NASCAR wants to keep us up off the ground a little bit and they do that with the shock absorbers with the shocks. And so they have a minimum length that they have to be so we bottom those out. So we could lower the car more here at Auto Club, but it's going to be really bumpy because you're going to be metal on metal with no suspension. We've got them lifted up off the ground to have mechanical grip and we hope that that's enough. How about inside creature comforts? Did you opt for the camera? Yes, yeah, everybody has a camera. Yeah, that's a oh, that's a game changer. I've got it in my Silverado, so I've been getting used to it for a few years. I still have the mirrors as well. The top looking out the rear and the passenger side and then I have the drivers a post mirror there where I crawl in. Kind of in front of my left hand. So beyond that, you know, the camera can't see everything, and it's also a piece of technology that we're not totally sure of..

"ross chastain" Discussed on The Final Lap

"Can you smell that? What is that? Is that better? Well, it kind of has a semblance of bacon, but no, something's going to change. Okay. I know people hate change. They don't even like the word change. They're going to love it this time. But something is going to change between this show and the next show. And what that is is our server. I'm not being booted. You were worried. You were worried. That's kind of nervous for a second. I was like, oh, crap. Here we go. Yeah. Yeah, I got Davey and he's locked in long-term. I didn't go along with enough of Jerry's Jerry, Kerry's jokes. Jerry Seinfeld? No, Jordan. Oh. Michael Jordan. How is his name even made it on the show? I don't know. No, we're changing servers. Everything should go smoothly, but you know how this stuff is. So if you don't see our show by next Thursday, let's say, I don't know, 6 o'clock eastern. Hit us up on our social media or websites. We should have why or whatever. But it should be fine. Yeah, yeah, so that's awesome that we're giving everybody a heads up so they know that maybe hard to find us next week, but the change is happening over the weekend. So by Thursday, when we release, it should be fine. Right. I have a full confidence. I don't. That's good. I spent years and years in IT and I know that whenever you say everything's going to be fine, everything's going to go well, go everything should be smooth. It doesn't. So yeah, just look out for that. If a show doesn't show up. Don't freak out. We're still here. We're just moving around. Yeah, yeah. We're just out there in this whole Internet atmosphere, man. It's all just kind of out there. We're floating. Yeah. Definitely. And we got a big change next month as well. What? All the changes. I know. Jerry Murphy, we have had the same thing going for like 30 years here. Now we're going to hit me with this one change. And then we're going to have another one. The actually the next one is bigger. Oh my gosh. It really am going to get booted. Maybe. Okay. But we can't talk about that yet, so. Okay, we're sworn to contract secrecy, I guess. Exactly. Exactly. But Toby may or may not be with a show next month, I don't know, but oh gosh, could be something. People are immediately logging off no longer listening. I know Davy listens, he's like, what? I haven't heard about. I haven't gotten a call. Cool. That's funny. You hooking up with Damien, this week at Atlanta. I hope he's there. I haven't reached out to him to see if he'll be there yet. But yeah, if he's there, we'll definitely bump into each other. We bumped into each other a little bit at Daytona. I know he's kind of busy with his other obligations he had gone on, but we still managed to get a couple elbows slapped in there. Right. Along the way. And yeah, so we'll see. So when do you head out? I head out Friday, so I'll be leaving Friday morning, get there at the track and immediately assimilate myself into everything that's happening. Are they doing the same Friday garbage where the cup guys aren't there yet? So Friday, I think the cup guys aren't really doing much, I think all their stuff starts on Saturday. It's weird weekend like Saturday is super packed with the two races and then qualifying for all three series is happening on Saturday as well. Saturday is going to be busy because I ran into that at Las Vegas where the cup guys didn't show up until Saturday, basically. And so I had to rely on Xfinity and truck series, which is fine, but the vibe at the track is noticeably different. Interesting. Yeah, so looking at the schedule, we're going to have all three series in action on Friday as well. They all have a practice session. Three O 5, four O 5, and 5 O 5. Okay. We'll be expanding the cup practices. So all of them will be practicing on Friday. Well, and that kind of makes sense because Atlanta is basically all new now, right? Yeah, so you kind of want to make sure that it gets out there and you don't want them to have their first practice session right before qualifying where if they do trash their vehicles with a brand new track, they can't get anything out there for qualifying. So then qualifying will take place the next day. Of course, truck and Xfinity race and then Cup race on Sunday. Okay, more Atlanta stuff later on in the program, but let's get into the sold out Phoenix raceway. This past weekend. Yes. A lot of sold out races all of a sudden, are we? I guess so, yeah. I mean, I looked at the grandstands. They didn't look sold out, so I don't know what constitutes a sellout, but it looked good. I think every ticket being bought, sometimes companies and things by the tickets hand them out and people don't show or whatever. All right, well, whatever they say, it looks good on TV and that's good for NASCAR that we're seeing all these sellouts, like you said. So let's run things down, ten to one, some drivers in here, not expected, but that's okay, I guess. I mean, this season is completely unexpected. At every turn, yeah, literally every turn, every race, we are seeing all sorts of crazy stuff. Chris busher begins our list at number ten. Yeah, and I think this is a pretty solid run. So rauch finweight Kozlowski racing was very strong at Daytona other than Daytona. They've been kind of hit or miss a lot of miss, a little bit of hit, but this week for Chris bush or at least it was a hit.

"Is darlington throwback weekend where you're going to see paint schemes or vinyl wrap schemes honestly from many eras of nascar racing. The place is called the lady in black the track too tough to tame and drivers race each other instead of the race track.

On a one point three six mile oval the cup races two hundred ninety three laps or four hundred point two miles stage. One is ninety laps stage to ninety five laps. final stage wing it at one eight.

All three series are in action cup series sunday three thirty pm eastern on f s one xfinity series saturday one pm eastern on f s one and the truck series seven thirty pm eastern friday on f s one. We went backwards on that. Ross chastain gets a setup for darlington this weekend darlington's tell in the cup series. Is the toughest adapt in be able to hustle these cup cars in a way. That's that sufficient. I think i found pretty good balance so that last year with extended cars in the cup. I just haven't found that at last night. I thought we had a good shot run top kansas. If if i get a good start there towards the end so same at darlington just you're down.
