"In on their motorsports side as well as several other drivers in the sport. And you know I'd probably I definitely probably wouldn't be I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them in. So we just keep trying to build this thing together and you know it's I don't run all the cup races, but you know we were able to go to Indie would their their car runs seventeenth burke four hundred, as well as a few races with a partnership with chip Ganassi racing and that help run the. Daytona five, hundred and six, hundred, two of the biggest races of our year and and really hit. Then we hit Indie was the third you know it's Kinda the third big one you know I wish I could run maybe Darlington or something you know just to just to kind of get all the crown jewel then have random before but premium motorsports but it's it'd be cool to do it with this group and that seventy seven car so. never say never were were trying. You know it's a tough sport where we're trying to keep. Keep our head above water daytona is a I mean it's a chaotic race in itself. Now you've got this added layer of of drivers trying to get themselves into the playoffs. Are you aware of that in the moment drafting? I mean that's got to be just such a different experience. Yeah it is You know fortunately fortunate for us and they really series as we still have five races before our cutoff. We have one less around in our playoff. So we have less races so we run more right now. In the regular season so You know yeah. There's going to be some desperate guys but I know that starting up front due to the math big old math equation Nascar has now I think we start you know the first couple rows to abstract addition. We'll have a fast car. and we will you know on the extended decide will really be able to you know I, think. Just drive hard and and try to control the race. I mean there's going to be a lot of us trying to do that and and trying to lead laps and and get stage points and win stages. But you know when when it comes to the Cup side for sure that's a it is going to be. It's a crazy race to plug into theories that I've only ran a couple times. Let alone the Cup series of that and they're. You know card that is Daytona for their regular season cutoff. So we be at totally opposite strategy there we will be safe secure towards the back you know.

"Wanted to do some hobby racing. And we did that. And when we got to this level in the trucks, we had made a lot of connections, obviously, through the watermelon farm and some of the people in the industry were fans and wanted to help me. So everybody in watermelons, nobody promotes just one brand. Everybody promotes Florida watermelons or Georgia or the South Carolina North Carolina. There's a group out in Indiana and Illinois is co promote and then Maryland, Delaware co promotes, so. It's in the Gulf states do as well. So it's cool. The Dave Ribble to use me kind of marketing platform being that we were watermelon, farmers, everybody almost everybody. Right. You're always gonna have some Debbie Downer group, but enough people voted on it and liked it to spend marketing dollars promote watermelons with me and my racing career so watermelons are easy to sell and my mind. So I have the easiest job in the world I get to go race cars and talk about watermelons all the time. And it really does come natural on both sides of racing and watermelons because it stuff that I truly passionate about, I'm not, you know, putting up a bottle of something and, and just talking about it because I have a PSA with them. And the sponsor my race carts truly is, whether you're buying a watermelon from my family's farm or somebody else, or the neighbor, it's all for the greater good of all of us as watermelon, farmers. We all promote together, and we all we all succeed together because when it's when there's a bad year in an area, everybody has a bad year. Nobody it's either all good or all bad most of the time. And also a pretty good fallback plan for you. If this racing. Thing doesn't work out. I'll be low man on the totem pole. I'm off chasing this stuff, and I am falling behind in a lot of that aspects of people my age that are going into the industry, and people that I grew up with stayed. The course my brother CHAD'S twenty. Now he's in, in South Georgia work in first year. He's, he's on the road, but he wanted to commit to that, and grow more acres when my dad in the spring for our Florida watermelons and then decided to go on the road because he's wanting to live life, and he wants to make money. And, and so that's I I love it for him. I love that he's able to do that, and that we do have a lot of family involved. And that's how a lot of farmers. All right. I mean, there's less farmers. I think than there was. But everybody had to get bigger to feed everybody. I mean the task of feeding this world is absolutely incredible. When you think about it, and really to tie that in is springboard into my relationship with nutrient acts Lucians there in industry. One of the biggest groups for helping farmers grow a better crop so Elliott Sadler and Brett Griffin. Brought me into that. And it's been a natural. Fit from the very beginning. We, we all know each other, we all do the same kind of business. So getting to promote them on my race cars and lead the field with them at Daytona and Talladega. And have more racist coming up and have somebody like Elliott Sadler mentor me and jab back and forth. We know each other good enough that last year road America. They hadn't told me about anything when neutrinos Lucians yet. And I don't really think they knew yet, maybe right around the time they all kinda got together, but somebody.

"Definitely not. Way, I would have written it. I don't think that they would ever even make a movie about this. You know, write a book at the fictional book, but believe it. But Rangers in fiction. Yeah. So it's I truly do believe in through my faith, and I don't like to talk about that much. But it's I believe there's like I'm there's a plan there's playing for everybody. There's playing for me. And I'm good with his plan for me. So that's this is part of it. And for some reason, I'm going to I get to go through this, you know, and, and he's not the way I choose to do it. I don't want them to take the win away, but thinking back to the range of motions after the race of the highest of highs again and then to the moments leading up the phone call when I was changing I was still in my race suit after the race and was changing and I get a call that over in tech and it's not looking good, and, and I walk over there. Nobody will talk to you. So just there's, there's a reason this is all happening, and I'm good with it because I believe I believe it's gonna work out and I see the light for my career in NASCAR. And I wouldn't keep doing it if I didn't. But I have have enough people on my side that I feel like it's gonna work out. So definitely not able to join it up. I mean I'm still great with everybody. See, GR and working with those guys to just try to be the best racecar driver, I can be and let them teach me, you know, all their different philosophies of things, and same goes with colleague and premium and, and these motor sports, and then a few races at JD left. So as part of it, I don't know how you take, what's right and wrong, it's just you get up and fight every day. And that's all I do. We'll Jeff Burton sat right here on Mondays NASCAR America and said that he believes you're gonna make the playoffs you're gonna win again and make the top twenty points. And he said, it's because he's seen it he's seen you go through these challenges this adversity. And you always come out stronger. You're tough you have that ability when you go through something like what happened at Iowa Rosty, do you think back on all the ups and downs of the last year, and lean on that to help you get through the current versity or? It's kind of palate, spin. So what, what's any different like this is okay? Why I should probably should have expected something like this to happen. But, but yeah. No, it's just part of it. And I, I know we won that race. And that's what I say. We're going for a third one of the season, and that's a dream come true to be saying that, like, two, two years ago, I would I would have given my left arm to come and talk to you on a podcast and have won an expanded race. And then, you know, last time we talked we were talking about what it was going to be like going into the twenty nineteen season with the car. And then, and then now we're like you still invited me back after all that was gone. So it's like, oh well you're a good guest overseas. We landed on our feet and, and we keep fighting. And so we'll just keep fighting like they're going to hit us over the head. And then we'll punch right back. It doesn't matter. So as you mentioned Ross, you're going for your third win you had a win last month at Kansas speedway and appraise poured in on Twitter afterward. I saw Eric Jones Daniel Henrik Kyle Larson chase Elliott. Some really big names from the Cup series. Congratulate you. And I'm very happy. I'm sure that's partly because of your story, you have great story. No. You don't wanna be called the underdog, and I totally appreciate that. I think be nice if we could refer to you, as Ross Chastain fulltime high profile established ride Cup driver, your story is great. But I think also it speaks to your character that you had all those drivers come in say these positive things about you after the Kansas win. But it took me back to when we were talking here a few months ago at can Asiya on the podcast. You had had some run ins with guys Brennan gone. Joey gays Jimmy Clements..

"In place, for whatever the future date is. But, but that's that's rules. That's it that those same rules richer, local short-track and, and that's we I had growing up at punk Goto speedway. You had to meet your minimum ride height rules it was four inches for the body and six inches for the frame, and our fast trucks. And if that old metal square tubing didn't fit underneath the body at four inches. If it rubbed anywhere you got thrown out, granted, we were running big thousand pounds springs and nothing else back then. So now with, with, with pigtails springs and everything you do to, to make these trucks, lower to the ground and scrub the racetrack. 'cause lowers better and it's, it's just a it's an. Inexact science sometimes. And but the right rule will go away. And but that's that wasn't the case this weekend in Iowa. And, and we just have to live with it for now. It is the rule brackets Laskey has suggested NASCAR might want to consider taking its rulebook and taking out every other page just indiscriminately just rip them out. One by one is that something you being favor is sounds like there's too many rules right now across the board. There's a rule because someone pushed the, the gray area. And then they had to write it down. You know, they had to put it in writing and today's world you have to put everything in writing. So it's not that simple. It sounds great a no. It's not that simple. But man, if they would just look at it as a as are the boss like quit listening to everybody. I don't care what anybody says on the podcast like no fence to any of us, but our my vote shouldn't count, and neither should the media. Neither should the team owners like it should be like it's their sandbox. And they're like they jumped back and forth like no. This is ours L, but will listen to you, and then we'll know we're going to go this. It's like more iron ship up, run this thing. Thing and be transparent and be but understand what you're talking about and just make the call. And I think that if that would have been the case with, you know, you look at somebody like way not. And he's been my series director since I came in the truck series and we both kind of moved to these fifty series, about the same time and he's somebody in him BUSTER, and, like they they're real people, and they understand what's cheating. And what's not I know that they've put out this new rule. And it just covers all failures after the race. So it didn't matter if we had if we had a hundred motor with one hundred extra horsepower. We put a big space on it, you know, where we could get more power, or we were a little bit low on our front splitter. It's the same penalty. How do you have so many rules? And then you have one that just covers it all. And they say all our hands are tied. That's the rule. Well, first of all, they wouldn't even tell me what was going on. Nascar wouldn't talk to me after the race. So that's sort of what your disgruntled about is. You don't feel like it was handled with interacted with you on the competition side and the the NASCAR. Yeah. There's there's lots of things to be upset about I said already very biased right now. And I'm still upset. You know, and I will be for a long time, but it just feels the need to go and stop them in the dirt again. Man, even though there, ain't no dirt, and at gateway on the on the racing in within the walls, but I'll I'll have done a start and park there. We'll just go beat him again. Well, unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, Ross, we've had a lot of experience with this, overcoming adversity. I mean let's go back and look at the last year and you get the expanding opportunity last year were Chip Ganassi racing. Then you're raising for a win before the crash with Kevin Harvick and your debut in that car. Then he comes out and obviously has some unkind things to say toward you. And then two weeks later though you win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The first time in the expanding series, you get announces the fulltime expanding driver can ASI racing's several weeks later. And then a month after that the ride goes away because the sponsorship disappear. So now you win a race and not even our later. It it's gone. You look at this. Like if you found yourself wondering, you know, why do these things always happen to me, this good bad good bad dynamic. Or is it just another opportunity.

"Have that track for this. And even though we weren't necessarily the fastest truck the trucks, put off such big wake and, and the track it, it gateway is not conducive to. Tu turning underneath people just the way, the spray is we all run up Elaine, both ends and down in one and to really run up almost in the third lane, two lanes off the bottom, so it's, it's a tough balance. I just made sure I never overdrove the corner too bad because I did that a couple of times earlier in the race and guys got by me. So, I learned my lesson, and we just held on I was looking back at my heart rate and stuff where one of those darn fancy watches it tells tells on you, and, you know, you could see coming down for the last green Feick stop, a big spike. And then sustained high on the heart rate on the beats per minute there just trying to execute coming down to the end with that final restart and stuff. So but we did it. And that's all the record buckle show curious what were the maximum beats per minute during that race. One ninety six average averaged a one sixty five for the for the race spending time with Ross Chastain. And winner over the weekend at worldwide technology raceway at gateway. One final gateway question for you, Mike. Miller's name on the trophy, you won the very first one with his name on it. What does that mean to you it did? I mean, I, I knew my just around the garage, but I, I know from growing up in watching the series and then getting involved with it, how much he meant to the series to getting that race back gateway. When I ran the truck series before, you know, the majority of the seasons in two thousand twelve and thirteen they didn't go there, then, so it meant a lot. I just, I know so many people that knew him so, well, how many drivers he worked extra hard to give them an opportunity, even when the funding wasn't there, and I know the end of the, you know, the end of the of his truck team. They're you know, they didn't have the funding in the sponsorship support that they, they wanted to have. But just the technology. He brought into the into the world was with the pull down machines and stuff and just different things. He's he revolutionized and he was just a good guy. I mean, every time every conversation I ever had with him. He was complimenting me. On the dark days, when I make a mistake he, he grabbed grabbed my shoulder just in the garage the next week. And just say, I'm and just learn from that. And that was pretty dumb. What the yet was. So he, he was just a good guy knew a lot. And he just was always always there and it's kind of odd now that not have them in the truck series. But we'll go on with his memory and it's really cool. They put that much of an effort into having him on the trophy, and, you know, he's a big a big figure big life figure, and he's big on the trophy. I agree. We all agree here at M R N as we as we leave gateway in the rear view mirror. You're qualified for the play offs provisionally. You've got the wind that gets you in. You've got to get the twentieth. You're thirty eight points out. You got five races to go and your next race Ishikagi land. Number one, is that doable for you at number two. What do you have to do at Chicago land to get as many of those points as possible here under the lights Friday night? Yeah. Mean just execute. Same thing we've been doing. I mean Iowa we were the dominant truck, but Kansas and gateway we execute it. And, and same thing, just taking the truck, we ran at the second Texas race and Charlotte. We had the fastest one of sides. Johnny solder. We had, I would say the second fastest truck at the second Texas race with this truck so looking forward to it. The time is always Ross. Yes, sir. Mike. Thanks for having me. And we'll see y'all Chicago. That's Ross Chastain winner under the lights gateway this past weekend. Coming up. Let's talk more trucks, we'll be joined by defending truck series champion Brett Moffitt who want a couple of weeks ago in Iowa happens to also be the defending winner of this weekend truck race at Chicago. He'll go face to face with our Anna new that congrats to Ross Chastain this week's autozone. Driver of the week. Got a job to do need parts.

"Forward to go in there. It's always a good track for us amount of half's, in general are usually pretty good for us. But Chicago is kind of a one of the better ones for us in particular. What about that track present challenges from a crew cheese perspective to make a car fast there? Yeah. I think it's. The temperature usually when it gets hot it gets slick there and, you know, the lines move around a lot. And then she move around you get you have to just on the car a little bit different in the tire fall off. I think spread going to be be something that we have to deal with, and we go back, what does it compared to most most competitively in terms of how it races as he gets older? It's getting more say like Atlanta old Texas, maybe even Vegas. When you get that package to that, track a lot of folks are saying, now that this is the style of track that this package seems to favor. How do you see it? Yeah, I think for sure the more down for us in the lower orders. Power definitely seems like it, it makes better racing at the mile and a half stuff. So you know, we're looking forward to go in there at attract. You can you need to be able to make the car move around a lot and try different lanes. And that's key with this package as well. What adjustments to make the car before you even get started to make that happen? I think a lot of it's on, on the driver. You know, we're pretty fortunate because our driver moves around a lot and goes where the grips at and he's not married to to one lane. So I think that benefits us more than most, and I think our setups are catered around that with this package being what it is are all your notes pretty much invalid now. Or are there still some things you can apply? When you go to a track that you've raised a different package at there's not a lot that carries over. It doesn't seem like from last year this year, just because they react, so much differently in your driving them so much differently. You're, you're not off throttle through the corner. You're running part throttle. Most corners. So, you know, they're driving quite a bit different. So what you have to do to get the car to, to drive well, especially off the corners, quite a bit different strategy wise. Is there anything unique to that track or is it pretty much like the mile and a half in terms of how you have to call a race? I think if the tire fall off, is what we expect, and if it's more than normal than short pitting and things like that will come into effect, and obviously, it's risk versus reward when you short, pit whether you get caught by caution or not. But if you you can short pit not get caught by caution. You stand to benefit pretty, well there you mentioned the surface, getting a little worn out. Does that mean that you really can't take the chance on to tires, if you need it for track position or can you? You can we haven't seen a lot of tracks where the left side whereas been an issue. But in general, I would say that's more of a four tire track unless you get to the special circumstance where you don't have a lot of laps in you. You got a chance to get track position late in the race to thanks through Tom and maybe guys will get one spot better this time around. Let's hope so that was what he Kane and Kyle Larson, screw chief, Chad Johnson. Thank you. He RAM. We'll have live. Coverage of the Camping World.

"Walk into NASCAR America. I'm Steven tart here with the mayor. Jeff Burton hall of fame and Dale Jarrett. Dare we say special guests Nate Ryan special guests Nate. Right, which tells you that it was an exciting weekend racing. There's a lot of news to cover needs going to fill us all in. But before we get to the news Jeff Cup car was off. Trucks got rained out on Saturday night, which put up for a double header on Iowa. You were up there for the racing. Would you think of the weekend? I love that racetrack. Racetrack is really good recipe is worn out. It's a really cool, vicinity nicety. It's I just think he puts on good race. And I love the fact they can run the ball in the middle of top both both the truck and these race with the racist. I know by definition supposedly, it's not a short track, I considered a short-track, and it looked like short-track racing with beating and banging but Nate in the end, it wasn't even what happened on the racetrack that perhaps got the biggest news first race of the day. The truck race Ross Chastain. I mean he goes on dominates wins the race. But then after found he failed inspections, what's the new? Today. Yeah. So Stevie in the expanding series and truck series, a minimum ride height requirement and Ross chest truck measured extremely low, according to a few NASCAR officials after the race. So he failed the post race inspection. And under nascar's new policy when you fail anything post race and you're the winner you're disqualified from that win. So they took the win away from raw sash, Jane Chastain, the team announced that it will appeal. It filed that appeal today NASCAR hasn't set the day and time of that appeal yet, but they are targeting Wednesday for that appeal to be heard, and the team has said that it will argue that Ross chest pains truck sustained damage that caused it to be lows. That's the argument they're gonna make. And they only get one shot at this get one appeal one chance to say, hey we think that NASCAR aired in this decision. I think before we get into maybe Chastain I think we should look at it from the NASCAR. So Jeff your opinion on NASCAR removing a win. I mean basically taking away we haven't seen it in some time. They threatened it to the teams over the. Season. And here we are, they finally did it take away away from one of the national series. Yeah. We, we had this discussion quite a bit last year on this show about whether they should take wins or not. I think for certain penalties they should take wins. I think minor offenses things happen. I don't think they should take wins. You have to remember that. They do have tolerances, right? They do have posed a post race hollering. They give the teams more more room for the truck not to come up and they told the expense teams and the truck teams off season. If you're low, this will this will take the win away. So it's you and I've dealt with it. We had winds taken away, and it hurts, and Ross Chastain grow. Drove a great race today. He got on the wheel and made it happen. But you have to have rules and enrolls have to be enforced and with them telling the teams in the off season they would take wins away if you were to low that makes it kind of cut and dry. Yeah. It's never an easy situation. And that's part doesn't want to be put in this position. But something? Did have to be done because we'd seen too many times that we were talking about an infraction that came along later and we couldn't just let that continue to happen. And whether it be points and fines, and things like that, that wasn't giving the message across and applaud NASCAR for making this change for this year. The unfortunate that of it is it probably the very first time happens to a team and driver that this would have made a huge difference for them to have this win and a lot of ways the fifty thousand dollar bonus the win getting amend, if they got in the top twenty which it looked like they were going to do so many things with that. But you have to go by the rules. I don't care how low budget you are. And what team you are? And and what a good driver. And good person, you are, you know, everybody has to go buy those roles. I just wonder you know with, with appealing something like this is a really any chance that, that that's going to get overturned, so we're in unchartered waters and.

"Is is way heavily into guys bringing money and and I, I don't wanna call anybody out, but that's just the fact of it in guys, you know, the the model is like, oh, we'll if I bring the team this much, they'll pay me this percentage back. And it's like it's such a flawed system to. I mean, you can rep your head around it and tell yourself it's a great thing, but I wanna do right by the team and the the people that are supporting the team and that are heavily invested into making team go. I'm in the minority when I'm not paying to drive these races and and a lot of people think I am and I don't correct them a lot of times because it honestly keeps other drivers with sponsorship away because this is a very evil business. There's people all the time that are all we can do reach out to my sponsors. All we can do better job or the best was we can make our Cup car looked just like Russ's extended car. It looked just like it in and then you'll be in the Cup race, and it'll be cheaper than the extent of the race in. It's like. Okay. Well, I'll just go around the Cup race, and that's how my Cup deal got going last year. So in the top that the best sponsorship story I ever had was we ran Indianapolis with my very first race, and I'm gonna be honest on here, right? Yeah, sure. It's I've told story little bit. So I wrote my first race at Indianapolis, finished tenth with turn one, Stacy Compton. Cole and the red bull trout finishes. He's all torn up. I finished tenth, scratch on the truck. Did my first restarts in a national deal Dema I live pitstops ever. I was using the clutch to shift. I didn't know what I was doing. We've finished tenth. Bristol was announced our, you know, we knew going in with our next race. The national watermelon sociation and promotion board got a nice little letter from NASCAR. Offering them to sponsor the Bristol truck race. They could have Ross in sixty six truck and they could have sponsorship of the race. Letter didn't come to me. It was never asked run by me run by the team. No, none of us knew it, but I got a nice less than a minute. After it came to them, they saw it pop up a Ford at me and said, hey, what? What's this about? You know, we don't have the sponsorship for this. We barely put this program together with you. We never brought it up NASCAR. It was just probably that somebody in their business development side that maybe they do that with everybody. I don't know. It never happened again, but then what you at risk, it was like it opened my eyes to like, okay, I can play ball. I can play ball real wealth, and we will. We know that now and I'm glad it happened so early because it really taught us a lot. So the rules of the game Ross are essentially. There's less money to go round, but the whole pie shrunk a little bit. So drivers are just going to have to take less. That's something that you in. Sounds like many in your generation or just accepting of the days of Cup stars making eight or ten million dollars a year, and there being several in that Strada on the premier series or gone for your general? I wasn't around for those times if I wanted to make money, I would have stayed at the farm girl more and sold more watermelons. You know, the business had a racing is what it is. And I mean, look around this place man, like it's still surreal to be. Here can be a part of this in in to not to just be a hired. Driver is a very small group of guys that that get to do that these days, as she said, we're sitting here Chip Ganassi racing, but you've got one race left Richmond on Friday, any chance for more races with them or a greater reliance with them or DC solar. Her getting involved now that you're an expanding winner, and obviously you're going to have a better chance..

"Come in. If you're ready to harvest and a hailstorm comes through Chapin's in Florida as crazy as it sounds, but it wipe out everything. And it's a lot of a lot of tough nights and sleepless nights, and because you could you put out so much going into the season for you harvest. There's over his window. There were if it fails, which we have tried to have as many safeguards and as we can. But if mother nature is the one, the one thing we can't control can take out everything, and I'm not just saying that for the story that is the Gosden is truth. So it makes me. Seem really easy. Yeah. By comparison farming, I'm sure has a lot more risk in many ways. What's the name of the company Ross that your family hasn't? My dad and my brother and what I'm tied into as much as I can in the wintertime when I'm down there is JD I. So that just means that Sanford just do it when my dad was young and getting going, he would go into town and pick up a labor for the day to do stuff in disguise. It didn't have jobs wherever they were ad in town, and they'd ride in the back of the pickup truck out the farm, and he'd take them back in and pay him cash and and they would complain or peop-, you know, different people. Then as they got crews coming in that would work all year for us. It complain about the work or anything, and he his, they always made fun of him because he was Saint, like just do it. And he would just walk away like they say, oh, it's too hot, and he took a break, do do like just take your break or whatever. But like at work done, just do it. So that's what he ended up naming the farm is it's cool to have the support of the whole industry. Because it's bigger than just our family. It's a huge family and we get together every year. Each state does that has a significant amount of watermelons. And that's the states. You'll see on my car sponsor me some. Then there's a national group that represents everybody and there's a national promotion board that promotes water mountains. That's a part of that association. So it's a huge family. They were obviously over the top that I would take watermelons with me victory lane, and I didn't stand there with a coke or you know, whatever in victory lane, I stay in handling watermelon like it was actually not even supposed to happen like that. I was. I wanted to stand up with it and bust it right there in victory lane. But I looked at the at the ground when I pulled in the head like a plastic corrugated material. And I was like at watermelon juice is going to go in there and it's never coming out and these guys in Las Vegas gun. Yeah, that was like Bill. They'll never get it out. So I when I busted on the track, I picked up a big piece landed right side up and ate it right there, and it honestly never did taste sweeter. It was. Kind of a play on words, but it really never. It was like, wow, that tastes really good. Like I was pretty hot thirsty and tastes good. You know you're watermelon too. So, yeah, you always bring a watermelon with you. Obviously not for the purposes of smashing in victory lane driving for premium, her Johnny motorsports, but just to have it for you guys guys. Yep, just cut it up. We have watermelon, queens, come a lot. They're part of the the association having watermelon for pit crews and stuff is just an added bonus to keep everybody ready to race. The watermelon farm also is a big part of your career Ross because four and a half years ago when it looked like your is over, you went back then regrouped and that came after you said you were fired at martinsville. So as looking up the stats and at that truck race at martinsville, if I've got this correct, you qualified thirteenth and finished fourteenth, how do you get fired after finishing fourteenth of Manville? I, that's that's what was so crazy as it all started Daytona. Right? So we went there. I'd be care that you're before probably all started. I made a comment pre-race. Yes, it was rain delayed. So we were filling time..

And he's like, I can't talk me, etc. That back on my name, beep in eight Ross. Okay. I'm back in in like I'm out there and I ended up crashing. I was terrible. That's how we got going. He, he's like, I didn't race. I just I had fun, right. I spent a couple of hundred dollars rented a race truck. We had fun with it and we could. That's what. We could afford to do and my Granddad I told a story one time to a local somebody media person back home when I first started. Yeah, my Granddad. He used to drag race like, oh, we're at it was like the streets of like Buckingham, like like. Thanks. You crazy. He just had a hot rod and we'd go out there and and my first race, they wouldn't. My grandparents would not come to. They said it was too dangerous. We crashed. He came over, saw the race, stroke, saw the seat belts and was like, if you're going to do this, I'm gonna work on it. He was a very good mechanic. He's like, I'm gonna make this safe. I'm gonna, make sure the wilburns don't fall out of it and make sure seatbelts or right fire extinguisher works. Like I'm going to do all that. He doesn't know anything about setups, but they became my biggest fans. My grandmother is well, and they still are they. He did some street racing. So somehow we compete Lia in the summit all up Wikipedia. I've taken it down twice. I've, I've edited it because it didn't take nothing to edit Wikipedia page. Even I can do it and change it, and it's it pops back up. They they go back and they reword it and put back in there. And I'm like in the figure, eight boat racing, like I hate that that stuff's out there, but I don't get it taken down. So it says your third generation racer and Wikipedia says, you're figuring boat racing veteran, you've. Done either your first marriage Yasser and you haven't figure it, but race. Okay. Well, was corrected it for the record as an expanding winner. Pedia will now. Yeah, and and clean things up your when the only members of your family here to leave the Fort Myers area. And of course they're all in watermelon farming. And you said after the win that you'll go back to the watermelon farm some day. Why do you want to go back to farming? Like, what is it about farming? Is it just in your blood love is something guys do? Yeah. I mean, it's it's a job. It's it's how we tell we live. It's how we've always formed an eighth generation farmer. They were in South Georgia. Then migrate Granddad eventually went to south Florida for an earlier crop to try to find a better life. He went down there by himself and then moved the family down. Once he was established. We've been there ever since they've grown all kinds of vegetables every vegetable down there, except tomatoes in struggled. I mean, there's pictures of me when I was a kid and my dad was growing squash and you had big tubs, you'd wash squash. And then that was like my swimming pool. I remember those blue tubs and they would take plastic bags to plug it in. There was a drain. So in it and that was our swimming pool man like out there at the farm..

"When we meet, he'll probably about crush my hand when we shake hands. They brought me the phone in victory lane, and I heard his voice and I was like, oh, man, like to myself. And that was really cool. You know, out in cinema, he made a comment somebody in the media and they tweeted it. He was talking about the Saturday xfinity as I was like, what like he's still talking about it on Sunday. That's when he's got IndyCar championship win. It's insane. We set this podcast up before you won the Las Vegas race, and I was talking to you a day before that about your origins and your family, and you had something you wanted to correct on your recopied a page. And I was looking at repeated pages this morning to see if you were now a first time expanding winner of the fixed and they still haven't. So are you a first generation driver Ross yesterday? I am. I am Kapiti associate. So if you back up to my dad, he did some hobby racing before I was born. He, he rented series. You could just rent a race truck. It's called a fast truck. I'll always like racing on dry. So he drove around the house and at the farm and. Okay. Yeah, pretty cool. Got on the gas on the brakes wasn't a. Didn't really know what he's doing, but. Okay. So they go to the track. He gets in the guy that run into truck was there to help him. It was just them to. It gets in and the guys like, all right. But she belts on and so he's laid already practices Yowen any gets in you. Gotta pull them belts, tight, and guy reaches in and pulls shoulder belts, tight in his lap belts, tight, and it pulled him back in the seat and the go, go, get out. There impact is go see what you think. You couldn't reach the peddles like it was just so didn't know what they were doing, and that's what got me going was him. And then that's the same series I started in. We went and watched them at the same track. Matt Morton was racing in the fast kids class Mark Martin son, and he won the race, won the championship. He had Gatorade on the sponsorship on the truck has a full double sacra trailer with Gatorade. Mark was there. They got out, they dumped Gatorade all over him on the front stretch. And he was like my age. I think close now. My dad's like we think about that like sitting in the grandstands as they're interviewing Matt. Like I said, I was twelve years old. I was like, I wanna. I wanna be like, Matt. That's cool. Well, we're not gonna have that. We're going to, okay, we'll come back and we'll do it. So the friend that race with my dad when he did it still had his race trucks. We went Sunday morning. We went over there. It was literally left out in his backyard from us time. He had raced like eight years before Powell Meta's had grown up. Palmettos are everywhere down in Florida. We took a chain to it and pull it out, put some gas in the car raider charge. The battery in it cranks up what holy cow, some two by fours in the seat we go. I driving around our packing house at the farm on shell drive, and it's like, wow, this is. I'm like having a blast like driving it. And I think I've in my head, I'm like sliding around and my dad. Finally, after the fifth time round walks out, stops me and he's like, Kay. Go to fast, get you to the race track. You're gonna hit the tree or something, and you don't have a helmet on. So let's, you know, I just had jeans and t shirt on, so so we go the track with an Nextel phone in at wired earpiece in my helmet that hooks around the back of your ear and has a little boom speaker like a truck driver with us, and he would beat talk on the.

"And I was like, well, I need some couth on the. I need to be able to manage a little bit better. I know that I didn't say him, but because he just walked off, he was all mad. He's pretty big boy too. There's some big boys in this. These got some muscles. Yeah, abandoned, we're, we're good. So it's just taking a little bit of time for me to figure out how to manage different situations and try to think, you know, in the race car, I'm just looking out the windshield out at the racetrack at my front fenders, but try to kind of picture the video game style camera view from up above from behind a seat. What is the real picture for my situation? I know you made things right with Germany, Clements and some of those other guys that you've had issues with has Kevin Harvick made amends with you. Have you talked to him now any plans there at any point? Man, I I didn't know how to handle it, but everybody on my side was on my side. Everybody in we're all biased. But we had the honest conversation of should we. We reach out and it was like, like, that's our place. I mean, that's it's, we're big boys like it was a racing deal. The comments after his what really got me more than anything. Obviously, crashing out of the race feeling like I had control of my car the whole time, and he was the one that was struggling and sliding up on the bottom. I could hear him in and out of the gas like he was trying to keep it off of me. Honestly. I know he was this is racing comments after, yeah, that's what got under my skin more. Somebody like that. I feel like if I can control my emotions like he could to, but he's just that's just how he is. I have grown up watching. I was there at his first Cup win. No, I don't. You know, obviously we don't run against each other and Cup, and now he's not gonna run xfinity anymore. So probably never race against him again, you know, honestly, in looking at the way my careers is tracking probably never never do that. Yeah, it'd be a problem. So on the track you have no friends. But what he said in that interview off the track that kind of purchase little bit Utah. Jeff Gluck and recent twelve questions that you try to make amends. Sometimes when you call the veteran, you've been told, hey, lose my blanking number. So you have no friends on the track. But when you try to fix things off the track and you hear that that does hurt you, it kind of seems like really be real friends. Anyway, we'd just kind of get Quainton and shook each other's hand, but it really wouldn't mean nothing. Honestly. You said you've been here the last two days here yesterday for the debriefing today. You address the team was Chip Ganassi here today. Okay, so you still have not met? Not met him now, the man, your car person? Okay. He's busy guy. Yeah, I'll fit into the schedule whenever I was times. Right, so they they have awesome staff here. You know, beyond the the business side in the racing side, you know, sitting down with Doug do cart. Sit Doug asked me to come as office before Darlington and sitting down and like just let it happen. What do you mean? He's like, just let the car do the work, let the guys who the work you just plug yourself in. Do your job, let everything happen the way it's supposed to and everything will work out, fine. We, we have the confidence in you. So that was like foot started shaking when he said that like this is a guy that I mean, he just brings with him so much notoriety in smarts for the business side of racing, and he's known so many drivers and and I think I'll probably be the same way with chip, but probably both fetal be shaken because from what I can tell how chip is it's, you know, I wanna win racist for him. That's my job. I'm not here to. Taking lunch. I'm not here to do anything like I'm here to get in his race car work with his his employees and go when races that's all I wanna do for him.

We'll we're going to fall crop right now in Florida, and that's a small crop, but they'll be ready the middle of October, probably. So was just another month away. Probably we'll start shipping out of there right now. They're still shipping out of like Kentucky in Delaware, Maryland up there in the Dover area. Just south of the track about forty. Five minutes actually is a huge watermelon area who knew that peninsula out. There is like gold for watermelons, and there's a lot of agriculture and then it'll reset the Florida. And then after that, that'll be for, you know, October on. And then. There will be a lot of import stuff. So out of South America stuff, we'll bring him in and people gotta eat watermelons.

"Speedway. It was career win number one. And earlier today he stopped by the Marin studios in spoke with our Woody Cain, first of all, congratulations. And you're still grinning from Iran ear and I don't blame you. Yes, sir. No, it was incredible weekend. No sleep since the Cup race except a little bit on the flight home got work to demand. We've got Richmond coming up and you will be in the forty two car from Ganassi for the final time this year. Is that right? That's right. Yup. Our first race of the playoffs will be final time in the forty two car with DC solar colors on it. And in the back in the four car for you know, to finish out the year and see how far we can go in the playoffs before we talk about what's to come. Let's talk about what just happened. You had a great run going at Darlington get tangled up with Kevin Harvick, but boy, suddenly. The the the country has discovered Ross Chastain and watermelons all of a sudden, then you go out to Las Vegas and have a just a great scrap with a handful of different drivers at different times and win that race and Busta watermelon on the start finish line. Tell me how you got from point a to point b because a lot of folks have seen you in the four car and then suddenly you're gonna get nasty car and win the what, what happened there? How did that start? How did that work? Yes. So it's it's crazy, but it's really just the product of being out there and racing in the four car for four years now and Jeff Karpov DC solar saw that and just started paying attention and asking around, and then you know a mutual group that works with them and and you know, I was friends with, I would drive their motorhome to the race track and stuff. What you drive motor coaches to Yemen? I'll do anything. And then I just, I just tow my truck behind it is that way I have wheels when I get there and they have their coach for all their stuff, but he asked them and so they started looking at it and then a CDR had three, these three races open. And I guess my name was on a list of guys to look at and we were the last one on the list in the day. So it came together pretty last minute, you know, not not. It was less than a month before the first race, so not much time to prepare physically or mentally, honestly, to try to embrace it. Scary. Yeah, and I'm probably actually happy. It was lit less time because I have psyched myself out pretty easy. So but went full bore in with was CGIAR, Josh wise and everybody over there. And there's a lot of people behind the scenes.
