That some of the prequel gets to my friends and Colin You know also earning your way through the pro series obviously You know it was a really hard fought pro series and I know that you got into quite a few battles with some guys and You know but how much of a relief was it once you across the finish line at homestead new. You're in. It was a big relief because few those races I got into trouble and had to fight my way to get good finishes. I was just glad at the end. I was able to make it in on point now. The six and the seventeen two of the most iconic cars obviously in Nascar. You know been running for years. Obviously the six dating all the way back to mark Martin. The seventeen Taking Kansas the championship. You know quite a while ago. And they've been these flagship cars for this team quite a while. So you know. I mean both of you guys Nathan. Obviously you returning to the series Colin you coming in as a rookie you know. How much pressure is there to really be representing one of NASCAR's most legendary teams one of the winningest teams in Nascar History? I mean there are a lot of pressure knowing that you've got the six in the seventeen and the size of your car. There's a little pressure of course but Of course you you want to go out and perform. So it's it's something that you you want that you want that pressure because you want to go out and perform a win racist have numbers long side your car like that. It is awesome and we got. We got a back up the performance rows flashier. They won the champion Nascar series. We got we got back that up. No doubt new drivers on the team. So yeah you guys are some big shoes. I mean you know Nathan. Obviously you raced against Zack. Novak who took the title and you know calling. You're coming into the series fresh in your racing a lot of these guys at this level for the first time I mean. What do you think about the competition level in this series because you know clearly with the involvement of teams? Like Ralph Fenway. It's really elevated over the past couple of years. I mean this is the pinnacle and I mean. Just how tough is it to be able to qualify? Well how tough is it to be able to finish? Well it's insane the level competition especially this year. They're they're forty extremely good drivers. This year. There is every year but this year I think is probably by far the most competitive feel without peak yet so even just to get you know tenth on the Twentieth. Grace could be a challenge alone. Get the poll you know. Get those top. Fives and lenses is GonNa be something truly special in this field this year. Just like Nathan say this. I think the most talented field pick seem. Nascar is seen and I'm looking forward to it. I hope our cars are good than we can get some good result. Now the schedule out now You so many different races from last season. Multiple you know plate tracks Different Road Courses. Lot of short tracks on there I mean. Do you guys have any events that you've kind of got circled on there that you feel like yeah? This is the one we're going to go take the chequered flag easily got. There's three short tracks this year. There's Richmond there's New Hampshire at an on this year and of course Bristol I want to redeem myself very bad from bristle. Asher just remember to take tires this time also. I'm looking forward to Bristol's well. That's one of my favourite tracks in Charlotte Charlotte's one of my best tracks. I think so. I'm looking forward to that and then Phoenix. I really like Phoenix. So hopefully I'm in contention come final four. Try to get a win there now. One of the coolest things that we've seen really in this NASCAR racing world championship. You know. Last year we saw the rows. Fenway cars running their same corresponding real world deliveries that they ran in the championship races. But we also saw a couple of throwbacks. You know we saw some call backs to You know to mark Martin. I mean if you guys were going to run a throwback for each year respective cars from that huge history of winning rows fenway racing cars. You know which one would you want for the six? Which one would you want for the seventeen out of those liveries further six. I'd have to say I mean going back to my childhood. You got the crafts and the virus car from Mark Martin. The those guys schemes. Just run those last night on playing playstation with the guys I was seventy big fan of the I liked the dewalt scheme back Kansas. I like those two yellow and black. They look Nice. So that that mid-2000s error that year when they got all five cars in the chase I think it was. Yeah no that. That's a good era those cars and now I'm sure you guys are pretty intent on recapturing that winning magic for the team so you know but my understanding is you guys have worked together in sort of race with each other for a while. So how long have you been? You know sort of teammates in working together. And how much work do you guys put into? Setups Various races. How do you guys go by two years? Couple years we started together on nexus. And now we're on we've been on dead zone for a minute Preparations Insane your your. You're on there every single day testing and trying to find new stuff and just trying to learn the track to some of these tracks are still hard to get used to so Nathan. Haven't been working like you said for about two years. I like we work pretty well together. He's he's a little better with Making the adjustments on the car. I can run the laps. Tell him good feedback and stuff on what needs to happen with the car. So it's a perfect partnership you each. Have Your role you have your you develop any work together and you develop that winning setup it very much and now Nathan. Obviously you've got some experience in the rallycross world as well so you know probably used to hang it out. No in winter push and no one went to hang back. Yep exactly no doubt now while you guys are out here. Do you have anything special planned with other else? Fenway guys you know have you. I mean obviously you guys have all met up Do you have anything planned over the course of the season? That's Kinda special for you guys being the new To newest drivers on the rows fenway squad. I haven't really had not don't have anything planned at the moment but we can get some things plan trying to get a few racist together. Yeah definitely agree like to the go take up a racism representative Guys for Nascar so you have any bucket list track that you really WanNa hit and I mean look everybody's GonNa say Daytona but other than like one of the Big Three like Daytona Indianapolis Charlotte you know if there if there's a Nascar Cup track you haven't gone to. Which one do you WANNA go to the mouse to see a race? I go to places like Kansas in Bristol often because I love those races so had to be something new. I probably say a Martinsville Willem would be really good one actually Even though you send Daytona Probably Talladega the next restrictor plate tracks. I've never been there so I'd like to go to Darlington never been there and Martinsville to be a pretty good. That's always good door to door racing down there all right and then finally guys. I mean expectations for the season. Look everybody wants to win the championship. But what is it GonNa take for you to guys to put both your cars in the playoffs? And what's IT GONNA take for both of you to be able to go to Phoenix with a chance at the championship? Definitely some good teamwork. I mean we. We've been used though for the last couple of years so we'll just continue rolling the ball and give up our cars into the the top eight then to the four and try and grab a team championship to our edits. Yeah that's another one of my biggles. I WanNa get is the definitely team championship for our. This is a lot of preparation picture. Setups tuned in just really track. Position will be a big thing to make very pick calls and hopefully we can put ourselves right positions the right time right. Nathan Lyon Coun-. Kista rows fenway racing. How do we follow you guys?

"In the final moments of last night's Daytona five hundred excitement turned to near-tragedy Ryan Newman's vicious crash sent shockwaves through the racing world and beyond in all too clear reminder of how dangerous the sport can be tonight. Show is not our usual Tuesday edition because nothing about the last twenty. One hours has been usual tonight. We are discussing the latest after a terrifying crash on the last lap of the Daytona. Five hundred sent a car airborne and a driver to the hospital. It's a show. We are so very glad is focusing on. Daytona five hundred champions recovery and we have received some hopeful news just a short time ago. Ryan Newman is awake and speaking. Thanks for joining us. For a special edition of Nascar America. Ryan Newman who won this race. In two thousand eight was leading on the final lap. When this crash occurred then Hamlin would go on to win the race. Ryan Newman was attended to by medical personnel eventually removed from his car and taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Now after ten PM last night it was announced that Newman was in serious condition but with non life threatening injuries and today shortly before four PM. Eastern rouse fenway racing issuing in update which includes the following Ryan. Newman remains under the care of doctors at Halifax Medical Center. He is awake and speaking with family. And Doctors Ryan and his family have expressed their appreciation for the concern and heartfelt messages from mccaw across the country. They are grateful for the unwavering support of the Nascar Community and beyond Marty Schneider has been in Daytona all weekend. He is still there today. Outside of the hospital and Mardi I would imagine the mood has been lifted just in this last a couple of hours. Kristie you can definitely say that in that fray speaking to family and doctors. That's what everybody seems to be hanging on here. In fact we've seen some fans and family. Walking out of the hospital. We saw some rows executives leave the hospital at about four PM today. We did talk to NASCAR earlier today. In a senior official would nascar told me they would have no further statements on Ryan Newman's condition that all statements moving forward would come from fenway racing or the Newman family and speaking of the Newman family. We know that his dad greg is here with them. He was actually at the race last night and was here with Ryan all evening long as wife. Christie is also with them. She actually was on vacation during the race yesterday. And obviously with RYAN'S CONDITION. The wife needs to be present to make decisions on his treatment. Moving forward the family needed her here in Nascar. Chris is certainly generous enough to send a plane and pick her up at our vacation spot and bring her to Daytona. I mean even here in Charlotte like you said just kind of a little bit more hopeful right now but. What was the mood like last night? You were at the track. What were your observations there? At the speedway no Christy it was very surreal because everybody in the sport drivers teams. Everyone has been conditioned to kind of you know. Expect the driver to get out of the car right. So Austin Dillon. Do that a few years ago and especially the moment where they put the fire out on. Ryan Newman's car. Everyone kind of turn did there. Normal Business Without Ryan would get out at any moment so they kind of expect it to be normal but the longer you go with no information really started to feel like two thousand and one of course your mind goes wild when you don't have the information but Krista the one image I cannot get out of my head was Ryan Blaney on pit road after the race. You know spending time with Sterling Marlin after the two thousand and one accident Dale earnhardt senior. He was the one who who wrecked down senior. It took them a long time to get over that months years talking about how he couldn't forgive himself for that. And I saw Ryan Blaney Processing that information. Replaying the wreck in his head so that image really stuck with me with rhyme lady on pit road a good fifteen minutes by himself by scar right after the race so I would say Ryan Blaney Corey Joy outside the Newman. Family the happiest ticket. Today's News Krista. Yeah so many elements this story. Martin. We're going to check in with you throughout the next hour here on the While Ryan Newman remains in the hospital. His crew members had to board a plane fly back to concord North Carolina last night. That's where Dave Burns is today at. Row fenway racing and Dave. I'm sure it's a strange place to be today. I would imagine a mixture of sadness but also now combined with relief correct. Kristen satisfied for what nearly happened with the relief for knowing that their Guy Ryan Newman is on the road to recovery. And you mentioned not being usual at the start of the broadcast. Well the usual the routine here at Fenway has actually been very therapeutic today because Tuesdays are the day that everyone gets together on the main shop floor to talk about the race weekend and that went on as scheduled at six thirty this morning. Right here at fenway racing save for the executives that Marty mentioned who stayed behind in Florida so they got together. They talked about what had happened. Answered any questions that might be coming about and made sure that everyone had that clear now it was a little bit like a rainout day. Here the pit crew practice which normally would take place on Tuesdays was moved until tomorrow and some folks had Monday duties. Kinda shuffled around a little bit but as is always the case. The Nascar family came together in a nice way around lunchtime. Charlotte Motor speedway is just across the interstate from this campus. And they along with the motor racing. Outreach came over delivered lunch to the entire shop and also offered up one of their chaplains for anyone that wants to sit down. Have a little conversation. Just make sure they were able to breathe freely and talk about what occurred last night and of course when they arrived here this morning the shop guys and girls they saw something outside at the fountain which warm their heart that was fan. Who had left some flowers? Of course not condolences. This fan was very aware that Ryan was going to recover and the note simply said get well soon. That's kind of news. We've been looking for kristen. And we certainly believe Ryan will yeah kind of makes us smile in this sort of moment of chaos and uncertainty so now of course while the focus remains Ryan News recovery. Your to Ray. Shop racing continues is the sixteen going to head. West and racist weekend. The KRISTA The sports you know has a way of recovering and moving onto the next race weekend. And certainly they'll be remembering Ryan but they want to get back to business with the six car so I checked with officials here. They did confirm to me that They will be taking the six car all the teammates with them to Las Vegas this weekend. However the entry list for the race just came out and obviously absent in the six category is Dr Ryan. Newman it says. Tv right now and so while decisions been made on who will be in the race car. They are going to move up there and a little later in the show all detail. Just what the trip back from Daytona. And what the trip out to Vegas will be like for this hardworking sixteen. Well we're continuing to think of everyone there at the shop at Roush fenway racing. Check IN WITH YOU. Dave throughout the show as well back here in the Charlotte Studio. Jeff Burton Steve Cart Nate Ryan. And we've all sort of been discussing talking about this sort of breathing a sigh of relief along with everyone and I think one thing that sort of jumps out as we talk about Ryan Newman is how of a driver. He's always been known to be. Yeah that's a hallmark of his career. Really Chris that he's bounced back from adversity and myself and some other reporters met with him. At Roush fenway racing last month. And he's in a really great place professionally entering his second year at rush. Fenway racing as the unquestioned leader of that organization. He took them to the playoffs last year after they missed the playoffs in two thousand eighteen revitalize rejuvenated. That team very much. Like he did it. Richard childress racing when in his first season there in two thousand fourteen. He made the championship round. He's also wanted team penske. He's wanted Stewart Haas racing over his eighteen seasons and cup and I think though that he still wants that first championship that Elusive First Championship and at age forty two. He is still driven by that motivated by that and we heard that from him that day that he talked at the shop. I mean very much engaged and driven to still win that first title and we saw last night how close he was to winning his second. Daytona five hundred which would kick off the twenty twenty season a really good way for him. I think you said Stevens was crazy is. We're all in the sport. We're all a part of this sort of community but we're all fans and you pointed out you were watching sort of along with everyone at home to be a crew chief commemorate the sport. This is a risk that everyone is aware and everyone knows exists. But you think you have to kind of put it aside to go compete whether that strapping isn't driver for me. For many years climbing on top of the pet block strapping one of my friends to go drive. You have to understand the risk is there and if you think about that. I'm not sure you can do your job to the level at which it needs to be done and and that is a bit abnormal and yesterday watching from home the Daytona five hundred. Like you mentioned when this accident happened it was quite a bit surreal and then as Mardi mentioned just the time the unknown not knowing what's perhaps the worst part of your mind races stay off social media the best you can because everyone has an opinion and then late last night we got some news and then today's news has definitely lifted everyone's spirits including mine. I'm no doctor. But the in continuous improvement has been great for my mood. And hopefully everybody's wishing Ryan in the family and the best when you're when you're in their circle you you see people's kids you see people's parents and really thinking about those two little girls right and and you're sitting there watching and you know it didn't look good for a while and you think about those little girls and and You know the families of their supporting their husbands or wives or fathers or their supporting them and you know that they may not know everything that's going on but they know enough and it's scary for them and and to get some great news. Good News Day. Just you know it makes me feel so much better because You know there's there's these I think many times fans look at these guys gladiators but they have families you know they are. They do have people there. Wasn't that care about and love them and it's just so good that you know this girl got some good news. Today is kind of known like you're talking about one of the toughest drivers but when you see them with the girls and even at the hall of fame did notice. He was a presenter for Buddy Baker's induction and you get so emotional when he talks about the people who meant so much to to his career you know Don Miller at penske racing or Buddy Baker. You see that kind of emotion and we talk about the family. I think that's the side that fans get to see as well the other thing to me and mentioned it you know Coriolis Joy and Ryan Ryan. Blaney those guys. They had a terrible night to and But they didn't do anything wrong. You know neither to Ryan Newman. They're all trying to win. The Daytona five hundred and like you just mentioned Steve. It's you know when you when you sign on to do this. You also signed on to take those risks and to do. The things that takes in is all three of you know all these are doing what they had to do to try to win the Daytona. Five Hundred Ryan. Newman doesn't walk right there. He doesn't win the five hundred if Blaney doesn't keep going. He didn't have a chance to win the five hundred and four. Joyo his nothing in the world he could do but you know they all feel horrible but you know you said it. I mean it's you sign up for it. You put yourself in this situation but I wanna be clear you know. I saw some some comments on social media that I just ridiculously uncalled for You know those guys were out there race and doing the best that they could and I don't want anybody can point the finger at him saying would have done anything different. Because I know I wouldn't have I done. What every single one of them did this moment in time where you know in the Nascar community. We've been very fortunate. Has Been A long time since we've had to go through a situation like this but in the motor sports community. It's never long enough. There have been multiple situations over the last decade where people have unfortunately become injured and lost their life in a race car and and while we all are adult and are aware of the facts and the risk. That doesn't make easier or simpler or any less emotional when perhaps it's there. It doesn't matter that you know what's up potential. The fact that it happens in the moment happens. Jeff I'll never forget the first race we ever cover together race number one we watch Dale Earnhardt. Jr. Win The summarize daytonas Austin Dillon within the catch fence and there was a moment in time. That absolutely took my breath away. Because I didn't know I had no idea. And unknowing is the worst part and the great result that night was we saw the driver immediately. We got some resolution immediately as Austin milk line from that car and that was the thing last night I think was just a quiet sense of unknown for the hours that pass after the wreck about that the tone in your voice because we have been the poster Kyle. Dale and I had been cleared. 'cause there was going to be no post-race because that rates have gone so long into the night so I was watching you guys. I remember the tone of your voice and just sort of you stop in your tracks and like you guys said the. The waiting is sort of that worst part. Because you can't control anything just waiting for the information every human and I'll admit I was so captivated by the end of the Daytona five hundred and the battle to the line between Ryan Blaney Denny. Hamlin that then. I'm guilty of of seeing the wreck. And we've seen this before and Intel. I saw the damage to the car and the replay the wreck. Then it instantly was the Gut Punch. That was the moment. I've seen racing my entire life. And and it's it's an awful thing to say that almost become used cars feeding in these accidents because we've seen them so often at Daytona but it became very clear to me with the damage the scene and the replay. Just how severe this crash was that. I think while silence was awful and then last night's news. Good today's news even better. Yeah I know you mentioned that wreck with. I didn't know what to say because what I said earlier with with the little. Girls of of Ryan's is that I'm good friends with Austin Dillon's father and that's the only thing I can think about whether this was parents and grandfather and and you know that's that's what this community does this Nassau community. I mean we will fight. We will argue. We wrestle. We will ally we will cheat. We will do all those things it takes to win. It seems but when the chips are down the rallies it rallies and on that night right. That's that's what I felt like last night. I mean you saw the entire the entire Nascar community come together to to support Ryan support his family. The fans everybody involved and That every now and then we have these moments. We had it last summer with with. They'll juniors airplane wreck where you have to take a step back and remember that there are some things that are more important than a race you may win or lose and and you know this this was certainly one of those moments and you hate to have these moments you hate to. I wish we all and I'm including myself and this. I wish we all could not have to have these moments remind ourselves. There's some things more important than how you finish in a race or or what kind of day you had at work. There are some things that are more important and unfortunately it seems like it just takes these huge moments to remind us but every time it happens this community is. I'm just so proud of them. This community always finds a way to rally and do it takes well. We're going to do for the next hour. Continue to walk you through our opinions insight. Deliver the facts as we have them to you. But you're a part of that NASCAR community as well so we're just going to kind of walk through it together and tell the stories and offer as much as we can for you and that includes what we have coming up. We're going to be joined by three time. Daytona five hundred champion Dale Jarrett who provides his insight on what took place last night at Daytona Nascar America on NBC is brought to you by Liberty. Mutual Insurance only pay for what you need. Welcome back the news and subsequent concern about Ryan. Newman's crash traveled far last night. Even the president who was at the Daytona five hundred when it began on Sunday. Actually giving the command to fire the engines president trump expressing his best wishes for Ryan on social media as did presidential candidate. He Gouda judge the former mayor of Ryan's hometown of South Bend. Indiana from the motorsports world. Mario Andretti extending prayers to Newman Soda. Brag has lousy who was involved in an earlier crash last night and again again so glad to be told by Roush. Fenway Ryan Newman is awake in speaking with family and doctors. That news coming out just before four. Pm Eastern Today. We are now joined by our colleague. Dale Jarrett a three time Daytona five hundred champion but daily are also calling in today because you have some insight into the crash and one person in particular who has affected right. Yeah that's right Chris Dying. Just let me say that the news that we got just a little while ago was great news That that Ryan is a late And alert and talking. That's fantastic And obviously I knew competed against him. And what a great competitor I was. We had our differences own way but And on the other side of that In that yesterday is I'll watch the end of that race. My son Jason Has Been this awful on for six or seven years now and You know they have a great line of Communication Ron Cohen number. Down too much appreciated Jason goes about his job and gives them the information they looking for and it looked like it was going to result in Daytona. Five hundred impossible yesterday but as we all know these things saints quickly spoke for. Jason this morning again About it He's obviously upset and southern He was at the hospital for a while last night but he was doing. Was there something that he could have done as a spotter differently had he done his job right but I think that that he did his job. He got his name into the front helped him get. There was doing great job driving the race car but but You know it it. Hits home there too because you don't. WanNa see your kids hurting but all hurting for Ryan Newman his family in this situation now. So well as you pointed out and others As drivers you know this is what we do you strap in. No one ever made me sit in in one of these cars took me out and made me strapping It was a choice that we make. We want to be there. You know part of the pond the adrenaline rush of competing is getting yourself in a position. to win the races and the Daytona five hundred being the biggest place in Nascar and Ryan. Newman the DON exactly that Everyone liked that type of all the time at Daytona and salad. They know that there's four times a year that you're gonNA put yourself in a different situation in most other respects on. Anything can happen anywhere at anytime. As we've seen many different types of tracks that the D- Tax Themselves to that it has done. Its implications just nineteen eighty-seven when Bobby Allison got up into the catch fence at Talladega. Right at the start finish line there and and that change the way that racing was done Daytona and Talladega and end up that. So you know this going in you might not like it I don't think there was something that was Ryan Fitzpatrick thing to do. But he was really good at it and he was filling out again yesterday and Just fortunate I say to to Nash. Caller to the car manufacturers to Everyone in the garage area that has helped initiate safety Issues and initiatives in the sport for the callers and and helping these Go like this and Jeff. Aren't you're one of those people that was always at the forefront of of healthy and looking at the safety side of this and all those things put together as they're able to talk today but It's a scary situation and But it's not something that's really going to go away these competitors. No you don't have to like it but if you're gonNA compete you gotta go out and do it DJ. I think everybody in industry knows the Jason was doing his job and didn't do anything wrong as I said. The drivers didn't do anything wrong. Either at this kind of racing puts drivers situations. They're not in at other kind of race tracks. But you know one of the things I get asked all the time and you speak so well you probably GonNa explain it better you know what is it about the Daytona five hundred. And what is it about winning? These rates wire dry was willing to put themselves in the situation. It's very difficult to explain how much it means but drought fans are constantly asking. So maybe you can help. Maybe you can explain it. Yeah well I I think the first thing is it is that they don't a five hundred it has been. It's been the biggest race that we have in the sport for for single event and everybody wants to win it when you come in when you first get into stock cars you you're dreaming of winning the Daytona five hundred It's the biggest of we've seen. How much is meant to serve any different Champions Ninety because over the years to know that they are Daytona five hundred champion. And you're willing to put yourself out there online. Make movies do things to try to win that race? That people look at from the outside. And maybe don't understand exactly why you would not too much. It means to try to be the best on this particular day and Do everything that she wants to To make these commerce safe to take them to keep them some going up in the air. But you can't you can't ever everything to understand. Exactly what's going to happen in these situations and and again it's unfortunate. It brings us back to reality very quickly. Sometimes I think we think oh my. Gosh he's GonNa have gotten so safe. Nothing's really gonNA happen. And you know we expect drivers to get out and walk away but This is still a dad that takes competitor and put them in a very dangerous situation but that willing to do that. Put yourself out there for that. Because of the competitor that you are and how much well thank you dale for for calling in and joining US giving us that insight from Jason as well. Thanks again just wishing round of phoebe recently race car. Not just getting able to enjoy his daughters and everything that that brings along. I also have an. I've got many tax asking about that. Want to send his very best His family too. So it's not just on world in there as Jeff speaking about this. Everybody competitor around the world wishing around noon. Yeah the story is certainly covered the miles. For sure coming up we're going to hear from Denny Hamlin who joined Dale Jarrett with a third Daytona five hundred crown last night. Of course our focus continues to be on Ryan Newman. I won't apologize there. Everybody we wear suck. We were all celebrating a new wreck but I had no idea how serious it was so for everybody out there this when everybody in here got it that it was something serious that we all kind of backed off so. I just want everybody to know that this one of the hardest toughest biggest racist to win. And then I think everybody's kind of caught up. What do you do a Mer thrilled to win it? But then when you find out what happened which we didn't know early so then I think everybody backed off and we started praying as it sinks and more. It's difficult to celebrate it honestly Ryan and I went to college together and I've known Ryan for a long time. I think a lot of them and Definitely our thoughts are with Ryan. And that's the most important thing to me and and I just wanted to gather my guys together real quick and make them make them aware that we're uncertain What's going on with Ryan Right now? And he's the number one thing when in the Daytona five hundred a big deal but it pales in comparison to his health. Those were some of the comments made by those with the winning team. Denny Hamlin's eleven once they learned of the severity of Ryan Newman's crash now Marty Schneider still in Daytona. Where he was last night. Mark WanNa get your take specifically on how everything transpired from your viewpoint in victory lane after hearing some of those comments that you got from coach Gibbs and crew chief Chris gay part yeah. Chris honestly was a perfect storm of everything kind of coming together. Obviously with the accident on the last lap of Race Denny Hamlin winning his third Daytona. Five hundred messages really didn't get delivered again. It goes back to what I mentioned earlier. Everybody just expected Ryan to get out of the car and time started passing. Everybody started realizing well. Something may be wrong here and it was Chris. Caper heard mentioned a moment ago. He actually got out. They had the celebration that lasted about a minute and a half two minutes and then gave heart realized what was going on literally huddled as guys in the Corner Victory Lane and the mood completely changed. Chris I mean it went way down. It was very needed after that point and coach Gibbs mentioned as well as soon as we realized what was happening. We stopped celebrating. We started praying. We started thinking about Ryan Newman. And they all thought about him. Clearly in Victory Lane is all those soundbites just played out and it was very personal for Chris. Part I wanNA bring that up. Because he mentioned they went to college together. They were very close friends. Gave Art was a freshman when Ryan. Newman was a senior. They were racket ball buddies. They would watch NASCAR races together. And then even when Ryan Newman graduated. They spent time together. And it's just another example of how tightly knit this nascar community is something you never want to put. Together that Chris. Gay Part and Ryan Newman went to college together in the battling for the win on the Daytona five hundred and we saw that sort of subdued feeling from denny. Hamlin the driver Once he learned as well Anything to add on Denny. We didn't get to hear from him there in in those sound bites by new to him in Victory Lane Mardi. I think what he didn't know how to react to be honest. You know he's trying to celebrate and they had set team goals any just didn't know how to react but everyone had the right once. Everyone realized Krista what was going on and I know they call it a lot of flack Ford on social media. But they didn't have the information any once he got past the. Lug Nut check unplugged as radio and I believe. They tried to talk to him after that say. Hey we don't know what's going on with Ryan but as radio was unplug so no one really had the full story of what was happening but I can tell you being in victory lane once they had that full story Chris to the mood completely changed. Thanks Marty as always for that insight and yeah. I think what Martin talking about there. We saw that in some some tweets on social media from Denny's Spotter Chris Lambert about that sort of maybe communication breakdown. That happens after a race. Dee Chris'll takes credit. Says you know it was his responsibility as spot to communicate the denny. What happened but as soon as they crossed checkered he went down in the second tweet he mentioned going to check with. Jason Jarrett the spot or four Ryan Newman but listen as a crew chief. There's a moment in time you work and you drive and you motivate for and when you see your car crossing the start finish line. It's tunnel vision of celebration and I know that is it. Sounds cold is basically. I think that you have no room for any other emotion. There's so much Dr and work and energy that was put into that and there is no protocol radios. Come OFF. Drivers take helmets UNPLUG crew members. Jump off the wall radios. Come apart you know. The competition is over. There's no more reason to stay in communication and I think coach Gibbs said it the best I saw what coach Gibbs described which is the teen celebrated because they didn't know and once everyone understood the severity of the situation. I thought the mood changed dramatically. I appreciate the spot or trying to put this on his shoulders. That's unnecessary this. Is just a moment of events. I mentioned it a segment ago as a fan at home. I was captivated by the Finnish so as one of the competitors. Who did it? I can see how it's easy to be caught up in the emotion of the moment not knowing once they knew Jeff. You've won those races. You remember that moment of crossing start finish line. Even if someone's telling you something different I'm not sure you're listening. At that point you work your whole life to win the Daytona. Five hundred and then of course. It didn't look good. They were celebrating but they didn't know the whole picture. And you know you have to remember. This isn't a football field where you can see a player down you know when that happens. They're moving that way. It gets far away in a wreck or someone's being taken out of the car looks the same as a normal wreck right. The all the rescue goes there. Everybody goes there anyway. Listen I know Denny Hamlin well enough you know Denny Hamlin well enough Joe Gibbs. These guys weren't out there. Celebrating knowing that Ryan Newman was down there. Her it wasn't it didn't look good but the truth I mean. Everybody knows that they're not kind of. Yeah Nassar's obligations Daytona Denny. Actually went to Halifax and spoke to Ryan's father so you knew where his thoughts were before he did the obligation of the media tour to New York City and everything else. Yeah and we do want to point out. It's the bottom of the hour five thirty. If you are just joining us. We did receive word from the team. From Roush fenway racing. Some very hopeful news happened just before four. Pm Eastern that Ryan Newman was awake and speaking with his family and doctors so we will continue to bring you updates not just today but throughout the week as the NASCAR season rolls on. But we have more to bring you here tonight coming up man who has most certainly lived the highs and lows of the Daytona five hundred two time Daytona five hundred champion. Dale EARNHARDT Jr. joins us to share his thoughts on last night for them. Welcome back to Nascar America as we continue to examine what took place at the ending of last night's race down in Daytona. We're going to bring in our buddy colleague from the booth. Dale EARNHARDT Jr. Who happened to win a couple of five hundred in his career junior? Thanks for joining us so a crazy race crazy finish. We've kind of given our thaw. Give us your thought on not only the race but the accident and the announcements we've recently received about Ryan Newman in his health. Well PRETTY EXCITING. A lot of great You know a lot of movement and guys on different strategies and guys with different agendas whether it be trying to get stage points Or try to put themselves in better position to to win the right and it was pretty captivating and entertaining You know we. We had a lot of harm big-hearted rigs near the end of that race. It took out a lot of competition and Change really the entire plexus of the race and We became down to overtime which is always raises. The risk factor of an accident and for driver and for me. Personally I I had a ton of anxiety over what we were about to see and You know I just. I just knew that. The risk factor was really high and You know I You know we saw a finish and followed the crash. And I don't even think I knew in that moment the severity of the accident There was so much going on that that I didn't. I didn't really catch everything that Ryan Newman had went through even that moment and And you know I think back to. You had several hours to really reflect on A lot of different things in and we've got some great news about Ryan and You know we can start thinking about his his future and his recovery and what that may look like and we wait. We wait is what we do. We wait for more information We try to you know. Try to make contact with those close Ryan's to show our support and And you reach out to those others that are affected by the accident or involved in accidents to to make sure that that everybody's In good spirits as they possibly can be in this in this time but as as more time has passed. I really think back You guys that was on the line listen to you all talk about your reaction to Indian you celebrating and that was just so unfortunate the fall out from that because you know thousand and one When Dad had his accident and Michael Waltrip had made it all the way to victory lane himself and celebrating what he feels like the most incredible moment of his life Waiting to walk right into that victory lane at any moment to celebrate with him. So I think I can tell you as a fan You know how that how that process can happen. You know and how how how what happened with his team can easily happen and You know so. There's a lot of other similar situation that are that are much like that to compare that to make me understandable for what played out within his team so You know I found that interesting but I I just can't stop thinking about Ryan and I you know and just waiting on more news information So we can and when when when we can see him. You know where Lincoln we physically talked Ryan and You know put our own eyes on him and and get a chance to to see how you doing you you. You are one of the very best superspeedway race and you did that by being just extremely aggressive so talk to us about how aggressive you have to be if you want to win the Daytona five hundred. I always had the most success by always trying to leave the race. And it's not physically possible to lead every single last but if your mind and your mentality every minute of the race is to try to lead I've got like the best defense To be involved in an accident to being caught up in something in in the middle of the pack And I've tried every different way to run those playstation and for me that was always the most effective approach. And it starts when you show up to the racetrack. You're you gotta be that way in practice. And you gotta go out there and and get my kicks and people often practice that you're so aggressive but you gotta show. This is how I'm GonNa race but on top of that. This is what my car can do. So when the green flag drops you you you see my harpole out. You're GONNA have confidence. Follow it because you've seen what it can do all weekend instead of when I was like when I when I coached the entire race that way and the week in that way I really really had a lot of success with it Sometimes it doesn't always work and then you start thinking maybe I'll try a different route. Maybe I'm going to sit in the back and try to take care of my stuff and work through their late in the race and you start trying different things and maybe you need to rethink your entire strategy and always ended up coming back around with being aggressive at a mosque. Szeswith that the only problem with that is hard to. It's hard to push yourself to work that hard every sort of the racetrack every straightaway. Every turn every opportunity every run. The car gets every opportunity present to you. Do something with that car. It's hard to stay on the wheel the entire risks. 'cause everybody is some point has to take a break. Some sort of mental break In thing you know the ones that you know the ones that can sustain that sort of and in fierce competitiveness throughout those races at there you see the same guys of toward the front of the year after year even said it before the finish of the race. I mean didn't Hamlin if he's not the winner he's in the picture when they crossed the finish line and a lot of these races that they on in Talladega and he proved it again. You know that he's one of the best he knew. I thought I didn't know whether he had lost the race. Or not down the back straightaway. Somehow or another. He never gave up and he wasn't GonNa win. He was pushing somebody to the wind and he put himself back into situation where he ends up. Getting checkered flags so That attitude of never quit never given up working to try to get to the front every single inch the racetrack is is I think similar to. What makes him so good? Oh you mentioned that hard working and never give up attitude and you know Dale as I watched the accident and sense gut both press releases on Ryan's health. That's kind of what struck me. I look at Ryan Newman. Is that blue collar? Never give up tight guy. And that's what I'm hoping for in his road to recovery here you race with them on the race track as you watch him trying to win his second Daytona five hundred. What are your thoughts on? Ryan Newman and the race car driver and the person well you know he has a great nickname rocket man and he got that name because he said on over ten polled one year. It just seemed like every way I remember when we went to Bristol Motor speedway. It's around two thousand and three. And he broke the fifteen second The fourteenth second barrier in qualify. And you're in like a fourteen ninety five or something and nobody ever ran that fast before and it looked faster than anybody else It was just. He was always doing something super impressive Early on in his career I had a lot of good ranches with him on the race track. We raced pretty hardy together at the Phoenix for win their one year around two thousand and four We had some run in finding out off off return to two years in a row in Atlanta and we had to have a conversation about that And he's a he's a big old boy he's he's a he's he's he's kind of intimidating when you're outside the car talking about some of the booze you pull it out on the race track but honestly every conversation. I ever had with him about racing. We were able to work through. You know if we ever had any kind of disagreement on the track which is really rare. I could sit down and talk to Ryan and we would he. He was understanding guy and Kinda could see it from both sides so I really appreciate that about him. And he wasn't one to hold grudges either. I gave him plenty of opportunities to hold a grudge against me for quite a while and race car driver should have had the habit of that. You do rolling across him. Once you saw on that list for the rest of your career but rivalry Kinda guy could forgive and forget and move on And he has this extremely close relationship with Ryan with Martin tricks junior and me and mark are very close friends and I learned a lot about Ryan and and the friend he can be through that relationship that he has with Martin and that really impressed me. how close they became? And how much time would share it with each other On race weekends fishing and hunting together and It's it's you know. I really was impressed with the renaissance. Only the the the sort of new chapter in his professional career. I didn't know that things would improve Iran when he went to the six car when he stepped away from the art cr with rows. I didn't know whether that was a lateral move or maybe a step back. I really wasn't sure exactly what that meant. And I'm okay. Man Ron bit between his teeth. He helped improve that team ten or more spots from the year before in performance across the board Godkin sales into the playoffs. Nobody counted on them to accomplish anything like that and he took a he really took a personal interest in improving that team and make better showing people that he had something less than. I really really appreciate that about him and and he As a race car driver. Obviously we talk about. How are you the pass? And he wore that like a badge of honor. You know we would talk about it and everybody across the garage. Everybody that Rose Alam race track winning. They just knew that was what you got. When you went up against random. He was going to be hard to pass. He wasn't gonNA give anybody any favors out on the racetrack. And I don't know I think we all Kinda got to where we really appreciate that about riding especially being in the booth as a broadcaster. I loved it I loved it. He could change the look of race On the dropped back and you know by by competing and racing and making things difficult and challenging people you really made it fun as a broadcaster to the Colorado with him in it. Yeah there's no doubt Ryan Newman was as tough as they come on the race. Track to call. I'm excited to hopefully call some more races in the future but Dale. Thanks for your opinion appreciate. You can catch more del junior download tomorrow with special guests. First-time XFINITY race winner. Noah Gregson as well as Kyle Larson but up next we'll check back in with Dave Burns at the rouse fenway shop. That's car America on. Nbc is brought to you by Liberty. Mutual Insurance only pay for what you need. Welcome back to Nascar America again. If you're just joining us. We received hopeful news just a little over an hour ago. From rouch fenway racing that Ryan Newman. Who was involved in that horrific crash at the end of the Daytona? Five hundred. He still at the hospital but he is awake and speaking with his family and doctors. Let's check back in with Dave Burns. Who is at the row way shop day? We talked a little bit about the teams plans. They are going to Las Vegas What else can you tell us about? What's happening there at the shop behind you. Well most everyone has gone home. Now KRISTA That's getting ready for the workday tomorrow. Which will include the transporter for the sixteen and seventeen their teammates pulling out in the morning and that'll be about seven. Am THAT TAS. Scott who goes by pop top and Glenn will man the six truck and head out toward Las Vegas. That's a twenty two hundred mile drive and it will be a long one to get the six car out there but really to remember Krista. The industry itself is in the middle of very busy week with the West Coast. Swing starting so the basic difference between everyone else and these guys is that they've had to live with the uncertainty until now of what's going on with Ryan the updates are so encouraging and so positive so got that to work with but then also the uncertainty of. Who's going to be behind the wheel of the six car while we don't have any information for you on that at this time what I'd like to be a fly on the wall tomorrow morning before that transporter for the six car pulls out because while most of the preparation was done today the cleaning of the hauler the adding of equipment and the loading race cars probably a race car driver seat has not been loaded into that transporter yet and that may happen tomorrow morning between six and seven a. m. as they get ready to roll out to Las Vegas. The company ready to we'll be ready to announce that when they are ready but for now all of us are wondering who might be behind the wheel of the six this weekend. Well thank you Dave. We pop top and Glenna safe journey as they make their way out west. We know a Ryan Newman won't be behind the wheel but we have a feeling a lot of new Ryan Newman fans will be cheering that. Holler along as they see it. Go down the interstate when we come back and final thoughts. We'll also show you what some drivers are saying with this latest hopeful news about Ryan Newman. The game's biggest star is going to be on the ice tonight. In Pittsburgh of Maple leafs Austin Matthews has been a goal-scoring machine the seasonal sif. You can add to his total tonight. Sidney crosby endless streaking. We know all of you out. There are Ryan Newman Fans Ryan. Newman strong you have your chance to call in your comments on that the racing on Thursday motormouth. I know Steve Myself will be here but we also know drivers lots of folks in the Nascar community are talking about this great new hopeful news. That Ryan Newman is awake and speaking Kurt Busch jumping in. I couldn't send about it right there. They all I think are saying in their own words. What we're all thinking could no better news. No cut tougher competitor. Jeff we've heard everybody Kinda voicing Clinton boy says it's the best right great news. That's what it is. I really hope that we continue to get great news for sure. I mean I think all everyone has given the same thoughts that resonated with me which the updates are wonderful but you know Ryan Newman is as Blue Carl. Hard worker tough driver as they come and expect nothing less than that with his road to recovery and hopefully we continue to get good updates. They great to see you seemed more positive news in the future and you know it reminds me we talk a lot about safety and how much. Nascar has done to make these cars safer right when you strap yourself in two hundred miles an hour. It's dangerous and you know we. We hate to get reminders like this but we do but I think a ton of credit goes a NASCAR that we've gotten to this point because with this was twenty thirty years ago we may not be well and again Safety going to be probably topic. We'll continue to discuss this week again. The statement received from fenway racing. Today just before four. Pm Eastern Ryan Newman is awake and speaking with family and his Doctors Ryan and his family have expressed their appreciation the concern heartfelt messages. We heard from Dale Earnhardt Jr. Awhile ago nineteen years ago today. Dale Earnhardt Jr. lost his father. We are so grateful that those two little girls Brooklyn Ashland did not have to say goodbye to theirs and we're blessed to talk about racing on TV. It seems trivial in moments. Like this but we are all so happy to hear that Ryan Newman Road to recovery has begun and we'll continue to keep you updated. Thank you so much for joining us and have a great night.

"Hey guess what it's starting for motormouth with this guy about petty Ricky Stenhouse. I'm not going to be here. Marti's taking over. I'm I'M GONNA. Stay right here. In this car for the next couple of weeks still just chill <music>. You know the sad part about that is probably true because rutledge has back problems. I think he might actually we still be in that car. There may be some truth to that statement. Actually I just texted him. He's still in the car and the car is still on the exact outside the first time we've opened the show from a dirt track welcome in Nascar American motormouth everyone Marty Schneider Kyle Petty and yes the pride of Mississippi Ricky stenhouse junior joining us on the show so tell us where you were when you when you shot that that was my home track that I grew up racing at that. My Dad grew up racing at Riverside International speedway right across the Mississippi River in Arkansas so I got to take Rut for Rod. I went I with him because he was complaining about us back I did not I didn't want him to like watch. Colin I go out and then him like backout so <hes> we took him first but it was a lot of fun yesterday that's True Hashtag track my roots okay and this is what I told ricky before we start ricky the first guy that I have ridden with since I rode with my dad when I was eighteen years old at Daytona. Okay requested. Pani said some now's with you man that is pretty big shooting racing roots. That'll be coming up later this year. We're excited to see that how will they as passengers injures Tanya Kyle. That's because what they said was that Rutledge Elaine in and he said you realized once again. You're going to finish second and I said you realize for me. That's one of my best finish the second so yeah. I'm good with that last. Look at this look ricky taken around. That's crazy. Is it weird. I never knew there. Were Two seaters sprint cars like that uh-huh yeah no we <hes> we have a few we did have a flat screwdriver. I got tired of it was coach. Now is really fun and you know obviously it's been a while since I've been able to make laps around Riverside speedway and <hes> you know every time people talk about riverside they think about out in California road racing and yeah at least around this area but you know it's a dirt track that I grew up at I.. I'll I'll say this it was it looks when you watch it. It looks like he just pitches in the corner just stabs and steers and when you're in it it's like smoothie silk it drops down man he gets on the gas he feathers it up off and it is it is amazing how smooth and I said that as soon as I got out. I said it amaze me. Watching looks one one way. Riding is totally different. He's smooth silken that thing then we'll talk riverside coming up in a little bit and the grassroots have our ricky got started. Let's Talk Twenty nineteen in your season to this point in the Cup sereno eighty. Eight points is not where you WANNA be outside. The playoffs not really exactly where you want to be but that was the number I've seen I've seen clashes have speed from rouse fenway this year a little a bit more. Maybe than I saw last year. Would you agree with that. No doubt we've we've seen the front you know more than we have in the past few years especially on the mile and a half race tracks acts and I think that's why I feel like our seasons been a little bit better. We've had more speed. We've qualified better gotten more stage points running up front leading laps and you know we we are the end result on the seventeen team hasn't been as good as what we want it to be but when you look at at Ryan's finishes his his finishes or or better and and we if we could marry two seasons together our stage points on the seventeen team and then his finishes we would both be looking really good so so we just gotTa get a little bit more consistent. We've had a few tire issues over here on our on our car. That has cost us a little bit but you know all and on. I'm excited with what we've I've been able to do. This year versus where we were last year. How hard is it to make gains in the season and that that that's the question. Everybody's always working working working working. But how hard is it to make a gain on one of the teams that you're you're chasing here. Are the top teams wedge huge. I mean obviously the I would say the top teams you know they're capable of winning races every week and they've got. You're not talking about this yesterday. They've all got four cars and so you're trying to beat that that level of competition and you know so for us we started the year out of Atlanta with good speed went to vegas and finish six stage points on both stages in. I was like Dang. We've got to keep getting better. We go to Kentucky and we you know have that speed still but I look at all the things that we have done our race cars over for this whole season to make them faster but we're still running. The same because everybody else is doing the same thing everybody is gaining every week and it's hard to make that exponential game and we know how big teams out there exit. I learned it from eight. Ryan so let's get to our starting grid today and they mentioned to spend the last two days together hanging out talking grassroots racing so we'll join the conversation with them and talk about how ricky got started in all of this ricky fair to say. You're on this aggressive driver right. Oh Yeah so we'll talk talk about how much aggressive racing is in place these days and how much has changed over the last few years and diddy him one after the race it is eleven team is one of the top three teams in the Cup series. Do you agree and who's in your top three. We'll talk about all that coming up here on motormouth sedan of course we're going to hear from you guys tweet us. I hat with the HASHTAG. Let me say this and call US eight four four NASCAR N._B._C.. Let's get to the phone calls right now Carl keeping a stream this. He's the first guy everybody every show our first call newman fan too huge. He May with him Carl how you doing today hey how ya doing what's going on. No no not ricky. My question is exactly that and the all season while y'all saw the addition of Newman. How is that been beneficial for the girls of our fenway racing and you as a daughter. Where has he been in good hoping you guys yeah rods been great to have as a teammate you know. I've known Ryan outside of the car and we've watched dirt races together and hung out so we had that relationship outside of the race the race teams and then now to have him in <hes> and you know you always hear him talking and drivers meetings and things like that has a lot of big words that he uses an explains things and and really thinks through them and I think that's helped us at rush fenway in a race car driver. I didn't get an engineering degree or go to school for anything such as the hatch and you know so to be able to talk you too. Ryan about what I feel like a car is doing and then you know we both sit there and try and figure out what we need it to be better and I feel like he's able to relay that message to the team. Maybe a little bit better than I am as far as our organization of you know hey let's let's make work on this to get our cars faster and then you you know some things we disagree on versus driving styles and what we're looking for in a race car but all in all he's been a huge help to <hes> to me and and then also just looking at how consistent he is you know it's you see that at other other teams but now that he's in our organization at Roush Fenway tight no matter how bad the day he still gets a good finish out of and that's something that I feel like us on the seventeen team. You know need to make sure that we start doing. They've had some amazing finishes lately. I WanNa New Hampshire where they had the coil wires. Go fast. It went down to seven cylinders and came back to eight. You just don't have that happen and you know like I said I mean things worked out right him and I talked about. He's like man. We got cautions at the right time. Everything just worked out perfect <hes> but their car was fast and they were able to run the bottom of the race track when nobody else and like he had clean air the whole time because everybody was running the third lane right and so that was that was cool to see see and we don't go there twice now but going back next year idea with a to look at that and hopefully make are better to our guy. Our Guy Marvin is next in the Queue Marvin what's going on you. Would you tell them what you're selling as well doing Marty doing K P and how you doing slick ricky. How you hear ear from Marvin what's going on. What's on your mind. Hey Ricky. I got a question for you buddy. <hes> you know. I love you in Ryan Newman his teammates but I got got a question for you. What is it like working with. Great Great Hall of Famer in the Cat in the Hat Jack Rouse Jack Is Jack is the only only one that I have worked <unk> only owner. I've worked with the sport and that's right. Yeah I signed Jack. All the way at the end of two thousand seven seven and started racing Arca cars for Jack and have continued to grow a toll call a lot of stories yesterday about our battles ah throughout our career and it's made our relationship so good. I almost feel like it's family. Kinda like the he. It's mad when I'd tell him he's like my my grandpa and then you have my dad and him yeah talk as well but just to be able to raise for somebody that has accomplished so much not only a nascar but in all motorsports across the board what he's been able to do with his relationship to Ford Motor Company in net brandon in the racing Zata things. It's a it's been a it's been honored to drive for him but also you know he's still involved. He's in every single meeting that we go to. He still gives his his opinion. He's always told me hey after he gives me advice or right before. If you're done listening to me just let me quit giving Ah Jack Long Driving Alison I like I like the conversations that we had been talking yesterday again and we'll say that a million times during the show talking yes but the relationship between your dad and have the respect from your dad is an engine builder building the business that he had an olive branch in Jack Jack as an engine builder and a Guy Hands on type guy that relationship and how sometimes when Jack needs to get a message he he says I always when I need to give message my dad. I just told my mom and she got so that way yeah so you know dad and Jack talked quite frequently and like I said if if I'm getting frustrated on the radio or Jack wants me to do something a little bit different. You know come to the shop more do A._B._C.. It doesn't matter <hes> him and data tag team team up on me. They'll have conversations and anytime I see when dad could does come to the track and they're leaned up on the Senate always. Always wearing black I know one race you looking forward to Bristol and Alex from Connecticut once asked about Bristol coming up and that's the racetrack where Ricky's done. I'm very well Alex. What's on your mind? Hey how's it going ripping big fan. <hes> I just WanNa know crystal obviously ricky from really really role there and <hes> twenty favorite tracks <hes>. How do you like your chances? You know don't win. It's most win situation. Maybe catching it up you and baby punching your tickets to the playoffs yeah. That's that's our plan. That's but it's been our plan every time you know we've finished second there. Quite a few times is and we've seen like we always battled back from something at Bristol case for everybody. We've you know you see some damage there. I think thank you got stacked up on the back straightaway this race in Colorado battling out there happy birthday to cal by the way but you know Bristol is one of those racetracks it. I really just kind of fell in love. The first time I ever made laps and making laps around there your first time you lose your breath well going went into this Bristol is like you said a must-win situation and we feel really good about our car was really fast and practice in the spring. I felt like it was one of the best best race cars that I've had at Bristol we got that wreck on lap one or two <hes> with the eighteen and then just rode around the rest of the race so <hes> was bombed that we didn't get to really go showcase case the speed that we had but felt like if we take that back we <hes> we should have shot at winning of all the places to fall in love with Bristol. I mean I wouldn't imagine as a young rookie you would fall in love with Bristol of all places. I don't know it just takes me back to in cal- got to run this was going to say like a sprint car when you go into the corners at Bristol in your car sits down into the banking racetrack especially when you run the bottom it kind of feels like this <hes> Sprint car and the the way you can maneuver your car around specially now that we get to run the top of the race track you can run in on the top you in turn down and you know cal felt the car roll and yesterday yesterday the way you get in the corner and it just really kind of fills home to do. I Larsen so good. They're exactly you can see you can see the similarities after riding in a car with him yesterday. Este look I'm behind him so you feel the back of the car a lot more but it feels that Web this reminds me of what our remembered bristol feeling like when the car would set and you'd have to accelerate up and you couldn't get a couple of times yesterday he's like this and you can hear him feather and just easing into it because yeah tires you're spending. It's the same way Bristol we'll come back. We'll talk about who we think. The top three teams in Nascar are and we want to hear from you as well at eight four four Nascar N._B._C.. Who are the top three in the Cup series right now it certainly we are contenders most weeks I mean there's not a week shows up? I don't think we can win. I don't know how many teams really can say that five or six. Maybe <hes> but certainly I think that <hes> we versed in in the sense of we can win anywhere. I think our speed is showed showed it ahead on post race Sunday after the big win at Pocono and in a subsequent interview he said we're a top three team so we wanna know your guys thoughts on. Is e eleven top three team. Who are your top three teams and so you're going to a few of these motormouth this year so we're GonNa make you put on the analysts that okay? WE'RE GONNA make B._B._N.. Analysts so if you had to be analyst who would you put as your top three teams right now. If I look at you know obviously a analysts slash lashed driving right. I got about Ville like eighteen nineteen or in my top three day I would put the twenty two in mytalk three because I look at the way that you know win can win races. The way he runs up through the film is impressive and I think not. There's not many cars that it can do that can do that yeah. The eleven is on the verge of being able to do that. <hes> these last two weekends. I think his attracts that he was really good Atas well. They're definitely they're definitely hit their stride all right so for my picks I'm GonNa go with the eighteen is the number one I would say. The eleven is probably too if the eleven can clean up races. They've got SP- they have speed every week. They can't have queen races any the limit all the problems on pit road and then they'll be good and I think also Kevin Harvick having his team is obviously showing speed here in the second half of the season so I'm GonNa go with Kevin Harvick Kyle your floor. If and buts were candy yeah I Gotcha got you on that okay. Here's a guy eighteen eighteen and eighteen three AKABUSI three cow bushes. That's eighteen and this is why we talked about this yesterday restaurant week ricky constantly every week. He has a look and win. He gets to see the win every week whether he takes takes it or not. That's a different story but he gets to see it everywhere. There's been weeks when Dany didn't get to see it. Kevin didn't get to see it to x has been off. This is a team weekend and week out finds their way back to the front finds their way and has a shot. Whether it's the first segment second segment at the end of the race whatever every track every track no matter where we go they are winners and they have the opportunity then he can say we could win anywhere and he's right. They could win anywhere the differences Ah Kau Bush we'll win everywhere. You don't mean and I just feel that way about that team. I don't think there is two or three right now. We talked about the big three last year and I don't. I'm not going off wins. I'm not going. I'm just going about what goes on at the racetrack. We used to do this race right and you probably did this thing we had. The handheld. Stop Watches in home. I don't wait a minute but you only talk a couple of guys. You know everybody point just a couple of guys cow Bush. Is that guy that every week if you had a handheld stop watch. He's the guy you would get i. He's the guy that you go to first to say. What's the laptop? What do I need to I need to be and so he's cowboys? Cowboys cowboys so for what that's worth talking Adam Stephen Sunday morning. He told me what they want to clean up before the playoffs is more consistent speed he feels like I don't know that I'm gonNA unload every week and be the fastest car. I would like to have more than speed now. I agree with you but they they're the guy to beat every weekend. I mean when needed there. They do get there by the end of the day but you know I I agree with you. He's he's you gotta be. I think we all had a number one by the way so for whatever that one two and three so I wanna hear from you guys for four Nascar N._B._C.. Maybe top three Kyle Busch's pushes like Kyle does so <hes>. Let's go to Anthony Anthony. What's going on another one another regular caller who's in your top three right now? In the Cup series well for me me <hes> my top three teams in the Cup series right now well obviously never one for me would be called Bush and never would be more tricks junior and then number three is show Llegado not good tales. That's good San House had the same exact thing yes yeah no problem and I don't think you can argue with any of those his anthony. That's right twenty two. I think the twenty two maybe they got a little more speed through the summer but yeah I mean it's it's a toss. It could be close to the top three. You get yourself up. There were a lot of work to do Cameron in Atlanta Cameron. What's on your mind? WHO's in your top three? Hey guys that's how you're doing. It was about the same as anthony just to flip between joy Lugano being our current champion <hes> at number one <hes> Kyle Busch number two and <hes> Martin tricks junior number three cool very good. I think you also have a row question. What about it is wrong? Yeah we're wrong because everybody's agreeing with okay. Oh you're saying he's all right. He's right in a restaurant way question for you to rick yeah go ahead yeah. Hey Ricky <hes> actually met you at <hes> Martinsville real quick <hes> the night of the snow before the race tonight how arson y'all were standing next to the fence and I met you there but my question for you is <hes> what's a good three to five year plan at Roush fenway racing like where do you see yourself and three to five years as an organization because I know you guys are slowly finding speed. I just WANNA see Tameer standpoint. Where you guys see yourself? The well we right now. I'm there through through two thousand twenty one so we do look at at the future. Obviously we know that we're going to have this rules package. At least next next year could have at the after that or we have a whole new whole new set of issues and things to to look at but I think when we took this step from last season two this season with the with this with this package Arab package I felt like it helped us. Take a step closer closer and it helped all the competition get closer but I think it helped us. You Know Bridge that gap that we've had and so I think we you gotTa keep staying on that path. We we know what we need to be faster and I think that we're continuing to work on that side. I expect towards the end of this year beginning of next year. We'll have more speed than what we what we have than flip-flop that two thousand twenty one when you never know what we're going to be our imperia yeah yeah which I think again I think when something big changes like that that's an organization's opportunity to hit the throttle and point and catch-up grin and try and bridge that gap as quick as possible because when the rules don't change the fastest team still have the upper hand. Let's go right here to North Carolina on and chat with our Oh. I think you have a top three fourths. Yes eighteen twenty two and eleven and don't hang almost I got the eleven in there you go <hes> ricky. Stenhouse reminds you of by the way he might be a little bit of my bad. Wow Wow <music> only compliment a huge compliment man yeah so help us understand thank you for the call help us understand the Isaac. That's huge is it just kind of quiet but just got it down man and was like the guy and I know when when I was growing up and he raced medallion Pearson won a championship and was good Buddies Pearson Pearson. We're kind of like you and Cow Pearson. We're really tight like that but that's a huge compliment man great short track racer yeah. You'll take that right yeah. He's won a lot of races so there you go. Hey coming off our grassroots. Racing tour brings us to a place. That stenhouse knows very well. We'll do some ditch digging. When we come back? You gotTA explain that Mantra Marines aw Riverside speedway in West Memphis Arkansas. My Dad grew up racing there. The track was always real money in tacky and so I- clean his car off every time he came in the pits and get that thing spotless and then he'd go backout now getting dirty again <hes> during intermission they always had foot races that was fun. It's a quarter mile racetrack but you still parked in it was narrow and tight the motto of Racetrack thrills chills and spills in my first race there fifteen years old. I got my first sprint car. Win And my dad I slowed down and he jumped on the NERF bar. Aaron wrote around and held check flag with him so that was cool and Riverside International is our next stop on our grassroots tour located in West Memphis Arkansas. It's called the ditch which ricky has no idea what it's called the ditch. It's been in business since nineteen forty nine and it's a quarter mile dirt track the personal playground at Sprint Car Hall of Famer Clarence Hooker Hood who in nineteen sixty seven one fifty seven sixty the three features and guess who is a huge fan of Riverside Elvis. Yes he had film from Riverside Racists Centigrade so he could watch and this young man ricky stenhouse junior junior grew up their race their display ground as well too bad the key CONC- race king as an elderly man see race that would have been cool man <hes> we bury the headline by the way because you had a mullet at six according to those pictures which I was like who is a mullet at six you who's born with it. My Dad had one. It was like a phase. You're into like the last few years this goes back the mullet but it takes work to now so. I'm almost patient. Yesterday we found that we have is that that's probably earlier than six threes Greensmith holy smokes. That is a beautiful that got you do. I'm I'm I'm kidding is seriously tell us about the racing riverside. It looks like an awesome place to right yeah. It's always been intense and I was trying to tell Kalle yesterday that you know we we used to park in the infield and we have forty foot gooseneck trailer and it had garter had a guardrail on the inside holy smokes and I mean I <unk> set there on the <unk> Holler and just spun circles watching my dad race and ran foot races and stuff and like I said always kept his car clean the mud mud. They're being close to the river. It's so tacky. When it's wet you would pull a tear off on the front straightaway and tariff on the back straightaway but yeah it was it was very narrow and like I said I watch my dad race? Thousands and thousands of laugh parked in the Infield. You're the only one parked in the infield because that's not eh well. You would have a lot of cars in the infield. I'll I'll get you. Some pictures. Say it's garbage wasn't word say right now it. It doesn't make any difference. It'd be like parking a forty foot trailer in this room and telling you it's and it would be narrow. No matter what we've been talking about this my track my roots campaign call <hes>. You got to see it in action. Yesterday I mean so cool to go back to the short tracks like this. It was really cool to go back and and to go through to go to your house and the seat of the photos of let's go to his engine shop and see the photos of of the race winning this is this is. Ricky's bedroom right here and say that's Dale earnhardt senior senior senior wallpaper banner around the top. How I was honored. I was in the room I may I made the room to Bush's Hi John Bush class. That's him and his dad and this just like just like you but it was so cool to go there and see all that a and then see where your dad built those engine one time. His Dad had twenty six cars with their engines in it at the racetrack at the local on everybody my and that's everybody. That's just fascinated me. Dad Dad build some good. I would say so six car yeah. He built all of mine that Iran at his school so it helped me understand the mid south. I've heard Arkansas for Tennessee. I've heard Mississippi mentioned in this all south but I don't it's close everything everything is right there at my dad's shots actually on the other side of the headline in Memphis Tennessee and then <hes> downtown Memphis is there how the Riverside International speedway right there in probably thirty minutes wow so you it's twenty minutes downtown. MEMPHIS yeah twenty five thirty minute okay so when I when the U._S. Riverside only five minutes now down okay. It's just right across right across the river. Everything was that close itself so you so you are are truly <unk>. Speed is from Mississippi but you're the pride of of Mississippi and the entire midsouth they they all pull for you now. It's really cool. It's <hes> you know you have have a lot of people around that area <hes> they are able to go to west Memphis. I mean racing's been huge in that area for a long time time. We had you know Memphis. motorsports park still has stripped asphalt track you race there on Friday nights. They had a dirt track that you raised on Friday nights and then West Memphis on Saturday so local racers will get two nights in just about every weekend. Yes pretty cool. You don't think about tonight's with anything twenty or thirty miles of each really cool so young blood blood is calling us from Missouri but I think he his dad may know. You very well youngblood how you doing what's on your mind today. I'm doing fantastic today gentlemen. How's everybody Eh Wonderful Ricky. I've got a question for you. My Dad was announcer there. I'M MEMPHIS boy. My Dad was in answer it Riverside for about twenty years. You might not remember him but I know your dad would remember him. A couple of motorcycle stunts crashing through firewalls and stuff like that a couple of times anyway. I remember the night you were born right because your weekend I think he won that weekend but my question for you is. I have the old flags all of them. The checkered flags oh I got him roll up the flags enter black and the white is like a Dr Gary. Now I guarantee you dead one under these flags and you might have won your first race which I guarantee you. I would love to give him a trade them with us for an autograph. Wow that sounds great. I tell you what young we'll put you on. Hold or have our guys in Connecticut. Grab your information. We'll get that ricky. We'll see if we can make this hat near while you're sitting there. Reiki season get autographs from. Kinda keeps me one of my. I've never been that just killed. The call man I mean you go way up to the top of the list. Is The coolest call we ever had admin asset that killed a man. Thank you very much broker to deal for you cool about that so the checkered flags there you know that Dr Dark Gumbo Yeah it just it would get everything it would get everything dirty and so the checkered flag it was the white was almost gone. Yeah look more like a black flag because so dark but they were big bags. I always say that. Mud is the dirt like you said it just. It's like Klay. It's like you WanNa make pot out and it really is dusty yesterday but like you said that's the way they like it but you can see when when they pushed him off and stuff it was like it just stuck these shoes and it was crazy. Yes you've been a lot of Saturday. Night's cleaning cars sure you did on that is my my track my roots at its best speaking of that. We had our placard at work last weekend. Monadnock speedway among them and New Hampshire late model sportsman driver Solomon Brow our earned his eighth straight win open the season. That's goodfellas right. That's a new track record. That's a straight eight straight eighth grade. I'll take back right yeah right all right. Jeff Brown County speedway Aberdeen South Dakota Trevor Anderson picked up the win and the modified feature back on July nineteenth and Jenner sound speedway in Pennsylvania Selena got the special delivery. They finally got their flashers on T._v.. They don't get their stuff man. He ran into a kid that we had his picture on the show the day he is so happy his friend yeah yesterday yesterday's Derek Carr he came out and helps run the two seater yeah okay. He was on yesterday one at <hes> Jackson. Motor speedway fired up yeah yet. He owns a shot business. He builds <music>. <hes> the shocks for my word. Google Synergy about Las Vegas is all about I mean because he was excited that they showed his photo on T._v.. And stuff so that's what it's that's what it's all about the kid that won the first show their next time you win. Don't hold the flag under over our placard if he wins the nights demand. Just can't what you could just kill nine. He'll figure it out. You know not in a row. You'll you'll get it down pat. Hey coming up. We'll get back to the phones and also it's Kyle Larson's birthday. This guy's best friend brand. Get Him anything special. We'll find out that we're going to call this race a little differently than we normally do. We're going to call it radio style. The acids will be covered live. Mike Baghdad's jumping up and down yelling screaming losing in their minds here Watkins plan ric hard June. You will have the inner loop and into turn five G.. Rex is definitely putting the pressure off. Jeopardy has turned six and seven turnpike sand. This race comes down to these drivers right. Now ended up the back straight away well. We did it last week at Pocono can't wait for radio style again this weekend at Watkins Glen and it adds so much perspective. I think in talking to Dell Junior Jeff Burton they say they casings things so differently when they're that close to the Racetrack Miss Fun and the perspective. I don't know if Burton sees things are kind of thinks he sees because that one a mess right right but at the same time you it is exciting. Pocono was really exciting. I thought it added to the POKENO broadcast. Obviously I love Watkins Glen when they do it that way. Because it's such a big racetrack and you see the cars coming they talk you through the through the the inner loop back around and send you down the Burton and he talks you as you come that way so it's a little bit different different broadcast last Tim four or five laps or the overtime at at Pocono. My hands were sweating. Oh my God because he just kept throwing it throwing it throwing throwing around the <hes> you mentioned how close to the track they are. Here's here's a video proof Bagley reacting. Oh No oh breezy in the wall yeah that that's awesome. Isn't it look at them on their style does he is what you're saying. He has no idea she silliest wreck right behind him. Yeah no no idea at all. He didn't know that was coming walking win or that close. He's just chilling classic radio. This weekend can't wait for that by the way everybody Kyle. Larson's birthday got him. Something Nice. You guys are like best friends. I told him having birthday. Oh good okay you yeah. That's all we need. You said you'd filled up as both the other day. L. Let me borrow it so I don't know how but he got out. You just told them happy birthday by the way on national television that's good I got twice there you go a couple of phone calls here so <hes> in chat with some folks <hes> actually we're going to go to break. We're GONNA get some phone calls in a minute and we have someone who is your favorite barbecue place at home. You tell me by the way we'll talk about aggressive driving back on Nascar America <music> what changed the rules and when it becomes when every spot becomes becomes that much more difficult to achieve you have to defend the spots that you have because you know that might not get back and you know that you you know the that that you have to blocking part of what we do defending your position as part of what we do is is just an evolution of where the where the rules packages especially on the mile and a half raised where you know if you keep somebody behind him behind you and that comes with side drafting and blocking and all those things that they're directly behind mind you there's no way they'll pass you because of air. That was two weeks ago Kevin Harvick talking about how tough the racing is now aggressive it is I think he went on to say ten years ago ago. If you were to raise his way Kyle you've got a fist in your mouth and what is his take take accurate his take his accurate and and I feel bad for him because he raced began his career with that type of attitude and now it's changed this and this is just a different style racing. It's not it's not wrong. You mean I'm I'm not GONNA criticize. It's not wrong. It's just a totally different style of racing and I think that's what he said. He used to listen mark. Martin is the one that started when he looked in your mirror running down he would just motion for you to go to the inside just pat. He'd give it up because he was confident that he could drive back past you now. We heard Kevin say that you can't give it up because you can't get it back so you don't don't give it up so ricky wires the racing so aggressive because of the just is it simply because of the package or has been developing this way for awhile. I think it's a few things I think it's it's <hes> the package like Kevin talked about as one hundred percent accurate that <hes> you know if you stay in front the closer yard of the Front Barrier Carson Drive <hes> <hes> I think another piece of it is because I think I'd see the aggressiveness in all the way from grassroots race in all way up and and I think it you know when when it gets to the Cup series I was talking about it with a couple of other drivers the other days you know if you're not going one out in getting those positions and keeping those positions right. There's somebody else that has money that will come in and take your spot fairly easy right. You know so great voice so all of us in the back of our minds like you know. I feel like ten years ago. Everybody was had twenty Year Cup career. No matter what it was guaranteed like once you got in Burger. It's not guaranteed anymore. As much as I feel like it was back then so I feel like we're all going Gregor because you feel like you're fighting for your job almost every week really leap a great perspective. I I hadn't thought about like that because it used to be once. You've got their chances. Were you WANNA stay. Stay there. You know what I mean and so you didn't worry about it now. I can see that wow that's a so so let's let's let's call it what it is. You're known as an aggressive the driver. Have you ever felt like boy. I shouldn't be that way or do you feel like it's coming towards you a little bit now. Yes and I think that this package helps fund drive in style because it it kind of feels like I was in a in the xfinity cars Iran those heart cars super super hard and got the most out of it but you know you ruffle feathers when you do that and I try not to you know I feel I had a bad daytona. One year and now people think crash people at every racetrack Goto perspect- does a little bit but you know we we had a bad race. A crash kyle obviously asleep at plate traffic crashes other people too. That's just the product of it and then cow gets out in his mad at me will then you know so all the fans jump on so of course <hes> I feel like you know speedway. Racing is super aggressive now and the people that are the most aggressive stay up front in when when when the race us and so I feel you know that my driving styles fine I would like it to be closer to the front acting. I think if I got closer to the front even be more aggressive you know because I want those chances to win. There's a lot of towns that I if I'm running for twentieth. It's hard to be super aggressive here on restart. You have to be super aggressive. The one rain meet all the way out of the each team in turn. Was this week yeah so then I just and I felt bad the only reason I felt bad because of the thirty four there so I talked McDowell right after the race in sight look I apologize he was he was okay with but that was really the one thing I felt that a couple of phone calls on this. Let's go to Roberto in Virginia Roberto how you doing today. I'm doing pretty good a and thank you for having me great. Show yeah thank you. What's on your mind yeah? I just wanted to say <hes> Reiki. You're not my favorite driver but I love the way you raise your. You're right there and every raise. I and I love your driving style. You're pretty awesome and I hope you win a championship sin. Okay Take Care thank you that that's a guy who appreciates an aggressive driver look and he said championships. I just need to win. That's good but he appreciates going for every lap. That's that's good. Let's go to rob and in Pennsylvania who wants to chat about the Kurt Busch situation much for Ricky. Hey Ricky again racing the I mean I it's awesome you make gracing a lot more entertaining. I assigned Sunday Gerbeau situation. You you get hit that into that situation with Kurt Busch. Are you worried about retribution from them. No I'm not I feel like he's got more loose than I do. So you know really really it's perfect ads yeah no so I'm not worried at all. I sit him a message but haven't heard any five show. I love the tweet I basically put the tweet in text and Senator Yeah Yeah because I mean I don't like doing stuff on social media but when somebody says something else out I like to every now and then at least respond with something so so you texted him. But how do you handle a once you get to the racetrack with him do you do you make an effort to have a chat with them almina clear yeah my did that with Kyle. We saw that among the Daytona I'm on you went to him. You know I I'm really not mad at him anymore. Spun out and I felt I felt a little better about it so your system yeah I'm done. I'm free free. I'm good. Hey guys you said your piece right.

09-25-19 NASCAR America Motormouths

"And everyone welcome from Nascar America Motormouth US Nate Ryan. That's how Petty Marty Schneider we'll get to your calls shortly on motormouth but will start with the big news of the day from rouch fenway racing the team announced that it will part ways with Ricky stenhouse at the end of the twenty nine thousand nine season and that Chris Butcher will rejoined join the organization and drive the number seventeen Ford Mustang next year stenhouse has been a member of the royal family of drivers for more than a decade earning a pair of extending series. He's titles in two cup. Series Wins Butcher also brought the team and extending series championship in two thousand fifteen and it's currently driving the number thirty seven Chevy for jt not G. Dorothy racing now ricky stenhouse was supposed to be on motormouth with us today but obviously with the news of the day he could not be here. He will be on motormouth in the very very near future so your team owner Jack Roush had to say about Ricky stenhouse junior in a statement today obviously thanking him for his time and his contributions to rouse else fenway racing a long tenure he had aroused fenway many thought that he was a lifer at Ralph Fenway and obviously winning the races and the championships on on the reunion of Chris Bush with row fin way. Here's what Jack Rouse had say certainly excited have Chris back in the folder row way racing. We've always been a big fan of Chris and his racing style while we look forward to having him and the number seventeen is we continue to grow our program next season so there you go. That's the basics of the news today nate tell us more you might know about the situation on the Ricky stenhouse junior piece. I called around talk to people today. This was not a decision that was arrived at lightly Louis for this team. They have a lot invested in Ricky. Stenhouse junior and vice versa seven cup seasons with this team to expand championships. Jack Rowell's took a chance on him when a lot of people did know about them and they stayed with them when you crashing cars earlier in his career so not a decision. The team arrived at lightly and not a decision that was made long ago. This is fairly recent. What I was told was as recently as early to midsummer. The team was still committed to trying to improve the number seventeen and keep rookie in the car but I think when you look at the circumstances says of Ryan Newman joining the team making the playoffs you look at the fact that Ricky stenhouse junior in seven seasons with Rosh Fenway. I think he was only the top driver two times and granted there are some other our names in that mix like Carl Edwards in Kansas but I think all of those factors kind of led to the decision today call you recently spent a lot of time with recap in Mississippi and Tennessee he hanging out with them shooting racing routes I mean does this catch you completely by surprise totally off guard and it it it has to be recent. I believe because ricky at that time. His parents were moving out here moving charlotte. They were closing up and finishing up some of their stuff there. When we took a tour of some of the stuff you know his engine Gin shop that his dad had built and some they close them and selling all that stuff so I I think ricky salt that he had a future here and his dad talked about how close he and Jack were and what their relationship Ricky's father to Jack Russian and how they had both been like that guide or a mentor to to ricky to lead him through some hard times they both knew they had had some hard time zone on the racetrack so totally it does catch me off guard especially this late in the season two totally catch the handful of racist life. You said something interesting. I've seen before the show wh what may be more surprising butcher. You know you know making that move or stenhouse being released because you feel like jt. Jordi is trying to do the right direction. I feel like the the channel ones and Chris Butcher had made great inroads over the last five or six races. Maybe ten races you know they ran up front. They got attract position also calls that trump made Chris got up on the wheel made something happen at a lot of different race tracks and you look at it and you think okay. Here's the little team that Kinda Kinda can and is doing something. They weren't in a position to win a race. I'll I'll give him that but when you take that team run in the top ten when you take that team and run up from running a top five consistently during the day that's a big big statement and I felt like he entrenched had kinda hit their stride so when again this this is a ripple effect okay. Jack makes a call ricky goes one place. Chris comes one place and the people with with the empty seat in the being. JT G The music stopped and that's red and they've got to figure out who goes in that chair. You brought up a fantastic point nate. I want to dive into that for a second. Then the Ryan Newman effect here did that have of an effect because row fenway. Maybe their eyes opened a little bit this year and say hey our chorus can't make I think unquestionably that had an effect. Mardi released and made the playoffs in seventeen. He has made the last year. Seventeen Times made the playoffs with this team. Ryan Newman comes in takes over the number six car and makes the play offs on points and shows Roush Fenway fenway racing that hey you're you're still playoff organization and this also was a team last year took Trevor Bayne out of that car for a little while put Matt Kenseth in Kansas showed significant improvement throughout eighteen to the point where the last couple of races. He was finishing top ten nearly top five with that car so I think Ryan Newman's performance this year Matt Atkins of being plugged into that car last year doing very very well probably open some. Is You know the the narrative. Was You know they brought in Kansas to see if their cars Ross and I think they may have determined yes. The car is definitely. We're off. They said that publicly but they may have also found out that hey our drivers that we have right now. Maybe maybe they're not able to tell us. Our cars are off the way Kenneth Newman and look this is this is a this is a phenomenon that is new to the sport where where we have teams that don't have franchise drivers okay and Steve Letard is always using the term Franchiser Jeff. Gordon was a franchise driver Henri. He drove that development the bus he drove that bus on what works what didn't work everybody else that drove over. There was a beneficiary of Jeff Gordon. When it was turned over to the Jimmy Johnson he didn't drive the bus as fast as Jeff has soaring and now they've got young drivers. Will those young drivers be able to move the needle on this. We see any team that doesn't have output put our CR in this group to Kevin Harvick left. WHO's driving the bus over there. Who is that guy. That's giving them direction to go forward and for me. This is a sign as the sport changes where hey those guys weren't so bad. After all your they understood the cars. They understood what the car needed and yes we. We live in an age of engineering where it's all in a computer but somebody's gotta set there but in that car and hang on to that steering wheel and say. I don't care what that box says. It doesn't work your Maine and somebody has to man up and do that and I think Newman is that driver who has done that at rush racing so that's the rows fenway side of things about the jt Darty side of things. Here's what's TAG team owner had to say today. We were in the final strokes. They contract when learning that. Chris had gone a different direction. Jt Has S. appreciate all the efforts from Chris out the last three seasons and when the dust settles we will begin the process of searching for the next driver for the thirty seven car co owner Brad daugherty. It was on Sirius XM NASCAR already channel ninety this afternoon. Here's what Brad had to say. Yeah totally caught US off guard because we're we were already ready building stuff for next season. Everybody else does and getting ready preparing and we do our business a little bit different than if you have the folks we really drive you know small package saw consumer packaged goods product placement stuff really really hard with our partners at Kroger and so we were in the full throes of trying to put something significant together. I thought we had it done and pretty close to it and things change. It's like this sketches. You're off. You know really by surprise this late in the year especially you know you're trying linked to be as professional as you possibly can. about how you handle these situations I don't ever blame any athlete elitist. He thinks he's putting himself in the situation. It's going to be better for him or his family. Got No no problem with that. It's just for us. It's always the timing and and getting this late into the season. When you have commitments it makes it very difficult to swallow this easily. I Echo Co what tad tried to say in a statement I was with him in Las Vegas Nate and Andy said Yeah. We're really close. We have a couple of sponsorship pieces that need to fall into place. He actually thought that would happen this weekend weekend and he felt like I know Chris Nervous but we're really close to a deal so from that side of things that surprise you that Bush walked away into. I'm going to go back to where I started. So it's a little bit of surprise Mardi although myself and another reporter asked Chris Butcher at Las Vegas Motor speedway Friday of that weekend's availability didn't know we were going to be next year and he did did indicate some uncertainty if I had to then I would have said he's coming back to Jj dougherty but he did kind of leave it open that hey we'll know for certain in the next couple of weeks where things stand so. I think that it's a little bit of a surprise from the team perspective. Certainly I mean we heard what Brad daugherty said. We heard what tech sector is had to say for them them that team now having to change drivers again where they had just added. Ryan priests and taken out. Aj Dinger for this season they probably we're looking forward to having some continuity nudity. We heard Brad daugherty say we're already building cars for next year. The rules remained relatively static for twenty twenty before changing over twenty one so it probably is a lot more upheaval than was expected which leads to kyle. Where do they go. I mean I know you have some thoughts on this. I mean this this said the old guy and I did and listen. I said something to nate and I said something you've if I'm Jay and I'm looking to to stop the bleeding and figure out where I'm at and I'm GonNa go to guy who retired earlier this year. I'm going to David Riggan because I think David Ragan. Is that throwback guy. He's that guy that can lead. You followed understands what a good car is understand. What a bad car is. He's one cup racist. He will bust lost. His book for a sponsor he will move now is he. The future of that team probably not because I think he's at a place where he didn't want to be the future that of eighteen but four hundred eighteen like that to put a rookie driver in that goes out and tears up stuff and wants to win races and thinks he can do this and thinks he can do that. They can pick that team and set them back a year. I set them back a couple of years. I think this has to be an everything that we do. In this sport. Now people a AH a solid business decision it moves the business forward and because we can talk about athletes change in trying to better themselves and go to another team. No you won't do but in the end this is a business decision for Jack Roush. It was a business decision for Chris Butcher and it will be a business decision for J. T. G. racing scene on who they put in that car and the slightly good news is the free agent market. This late in season isn't completely bearing. There's some things that are fluid Daniel stores. We know Daniel Gorkhas out there. We know now ricky. stenhouse junior is out there so there would be a few options. I would think the down might not usually have this late in the obviously a busy day the phone lines are now open at eight four or four NASCAR. NBC But I want to check in with our very own Jeff Burton very familiar with Burton's our dollar actually Carl for the first one yeah. I don't think jeff is in Akron right now in the first time ever someone other than Carl's in the first call on the show Jeff. How're you doing yeah. This is Carl. I love it. I love it may not Burton good job so this this move catch you by surprise. It called me completely by surprise. I think caught a Lotta people by surprise you know in reading between the lines and all he's doing that but in these cases you know that's what we're GONNA do. you know it sounds like a case where according you know listen to what Branson and what what Tad said is that they were working to get a the deal done right it wasn't done. We're working to get a deal done in today's uncertainty. If you're if you are Chris Butcha and you have a positive like yes. This is going to happen overnight able to get this done it. Kinda puts you in a bad spot. You know even if you're trying to be loyal even if you're trying to stay with the team MHM It's very difficult to make that decision when you don't really go. You have a done deal so that's kind of you know when Carlos wait to get all the sponsorships internship lined up before they closed the driver. It exposes them to potentially losing a driver and I don't blame doing right but there's a there's a danger in doing that. From the Rouse Fenway Perspective Jeff we were just talking about Ryan Newman success coming into that team first year in the playoffs and the six car. Do you think that had an an impact on how the team then viewed Ricky stenhouse juniors performance this year I it had to have an impact here's what I think. I think it's a bigger picture. I you you know that the fenway Raskin Way Rakusa now's relationship. There's lasted a long time and unfortunately in the Cup side of things things a lot of it has been under stressful times and it's like a marriage if you were married for six or seven years and you're constantly trying to six something mm-hmm marriage gets old and it gets very difficult and you know you get to the point where you're constantly telling them. Their cars aren't good saying you're constantly in struggle. Aw To get where you want to be competitive and then you know then Ryan comes in has a good year and you know things just Kinda pile up. I completely convinced that Ralston Way. I Know Jack Very well. You know he likes drivers and stay there for a long time. He you know they had a lot invested in Ricki Ricki at had a lot of them but you know it's unfortunately it just wasn't working men and I think Ralph would would would stand up and say hey cars had always been that great great we don't put it all ricky but the combination wasn't able to move the cars for two cows point. You know the combination of people. Bolan wasn't able with crew chief changes and all those things wasn't able to move cars where they needed to be so you know. I don't think it was one incident we didn't. I think it was just time spent with each other for that amount of time and you start to to learn about things and you know it's been. It's been a stressful time for everybody off for a long time. Okay you're in the booth every week and you seen what jt jar has done this year with with. Chris Butcher and with trends joins and how they've that car has moved through the pack and move to a different place in fact. How big a blow is this for that team so I think it's I think it's a really big blow but I think they can overcome it. I think they're going to have to be smart so so when you when you in this is not. I'm not being ugly Louis when I say this but when you go drive that car you have to know that you're in a building process you're not going to you're not going to Joe Gibbs racing right. You're going to accompany that is trying to calm Joe Gibbs racing and they do a great job. They do great. I mean they build their own chassis. You got a lot of stuff going over there. Does a great job of selling sponsorship have a lot of positives but they're not joe gibbs racing. They're not Pinski so they've got to collect themselves and and put somebody in that seat that will embrace the challenge right so you're mealy. We'll try to say well. Let's get God. It's one raises. That's got that. I don't think that's the right thank God for that spot. I think you need to get hungry. Somebody that's really hungry. Somebody wants it really bad somebody. That's going to stand there and fight with you an all situations situations and you know who that is. I don't know if some ideas in my brain but I think you've gotTa have the right mentality right and I thought when Rao in way higher Mac Kansas I thought it was a brilliant move but I also saw is is Matt Kinzer built for this right. Is he built to go drive a car art. That can't win. That's completely different mentality then then when you stop yourself into something that you can win races and it's GonNa take. It's take the right personality to to roll over that car to help. Keep moving that that team forward so you touched on it so if you're tagging scheckter. Where would you go jeff like what direction when you got for a driver so you listen. I what cost about a experience driver makes a Lotta sense to me but there's not many experienced -perienced real hungry drivers right you. I think you gotta find somebody. That's really hungry. chastain is obviously a real hungry guy. He drives like he's hungry. Brett MOFFITT red lava. The Guy hasn't come experience he he. I've I've been team. A sort of a team with Brett wants before like that guy. I doesn't truck series. I would look for somebody that I would say this. I mean this in a positive has had the rug pulled out from under it right that had a really good situation and it got taken away because those people are hungry and if you look at them off at you look at it chastain they had that DNA. That's a really good point by the way you're the Road Jeff. How is your tour of the roble. This afternoon believes crazy. I think that that they now by the way we're looking at your tweet with Harrison you like that. You like to ask you if you get to that. You get to that breaking. You're if you're in trouble that knew that is that. Is that the new carousel ourselves. We we gotta decide where we're going to call care sales would but that news on the back straightaway that is a heavy heavy heavy braking begins own now and I think that's really awesome because it's GonNa create a passage though wraps around around the car and it was around and it's God that's crazy man I i. I don't know that I'd want to do it but we can't wait to get their practice on Friday going to be a lot of fun. Hey thanks for your time Jay. Human guys relate appreciate appreciate shit the insight as always we'll still tons to get to on the show today. Let me get your thoughts on today's news around Fenway Racing God eight four four Nascar. NBC another driver making headlines this week Christopher Bow. You got a cup ride for next year. He joins us to talk about that and we'll play new NASCAR AMERICA game. You guys ready Monday's headlines today. What will we be talking about after the role this weekend. I'm simply pointing talked about their point to talk about on Nascar America Erica. We continue for sure but if you're just joining us rows fenway racing announced today that it will part ways with Ricky stenhouse junior at the end of the year replacing him in the seventeen car will be Chris Butcher it will come over from J. t. AG Dorothy racing breaking news here on a Wednesday welcome back to motormouth everyone we want to head to the phones and get your guys reaction to all of this eight four four NASCAR ASKER NBC in his rightful place whole position even though a segment to from Akron Ohio how you doing Carl. It's really suck on doing what not too big nate near Carl. Okay there. You go all right yeah. You're fine with that uh to go second to future hall of fame the jump Burton out a problem. I can tell you one thing good thing about that. Six train keeps on rolling into question. I was GONNA ask is success led to ricky departure but so go this way for you speed you look for all a year long. All of a sudden newman they found speeding to poor faces. This comes from the old notebooks this come just from a setup dispeat- comfort no idea no idea. I think it's called us all all of us that we're watching this race. by surprise we see. Newman carried Terry this car on his back at a lot of racetracks this year but up there they had speed speed had drop off the corner he could he any head speed down the straightaways and that was unexpected unexpected from me. It reminded me a lot of two thousand fourteen and Richard childress racing Newman's first year at our CR yeah and Dan he makes the playoffs with no warnings and soon as he got in those final ten. I think he had four or five top ten. Seattle ten which he say what you want about Ryan Newman about how difficult the pass and angering other drivers he will his way is really strong finishes and it's funny. I've talked to Scott Graves before Vegas and he said bodily we Kinda went back to some basics so you kind of tried to find some things in the last month back to basics and they've they found some feed. Well set up to Pennsylvania where we hear from cody cody. How're you doing today. Good good guys. How're you doing fine yeah. I was just wondering I have a two part question first. I whether you guys where do you guys think is the most likely place for Ricky stenhouse junior to end up and to to especially session by rows to release them House Ghali. Take that so you know. I don't know obviously we don't know what goes on inside. Rosh racing for their decision making process or were they were at adult. Burton brought up some great points the sometimes after something has gone this long with limited success but it's time to cut bait fishing another horse yeah. It's it has a lot of times it that happens with a lot of people and it happens with a lot of different teams at this later date. I'm not sure we'll end up. Maybe back maybe running some sprint car races for a year or something. I mean I mean I don't see the extended series is trending younger and younger and younger the truck series is what it is so I think when you look at it. It depends on what ricky wants. What what is Ricky won't from his driving career. What is he wanted to do so it's going to be interesting to see how he processes this. I wouldn't characterize it as like carte blanche. I think you're I think stenhouse will have a little bit of autonomy undecided on where he goes if he wants to get back to the minor leagues run dirt again or if he wants to stay in Nascar I would think that he would be on the list at the thirty seven. Yeah I would think that it caught them off guard but I would think I think they're going to assemble a list of candidates and I certainly he certainly feels that Bill Burton was talking about for slighted drivers. He's certainly let's head to Florida where we hear from Anthony Honey. What's happening Anthony. Hey guys. How're you doing today so nothing much really the so busy last week coming call but it's good to be back on motormouth so I just wanted to react to the grape you news you know when I first heard that Chris Butcher. Is Coming back home. Rally Racing Ed had completely we shot was flabbergasted. I mean it was very unexpected news for all of us because I remember back to August I that ricky Sunday to your extension with the the thirteenth team and so now plans have obviously changed and of course this is from the ruling doing sport. It's happened before I actually name one driver for example other event that cancer from last year all the top of my head and remember this one John Andretti because he for the penny everybody's being for a couple of years tim back to to the team to run a race to the forty five cards back in two thousand seven so so Robo I didn't see this one common and I do wish Chris Bush or good luck and I hope that House for two thousand twenty Anthony we appreciate you. Thanks for the call explanation on that was nate that it was a row fenway option and they elected not to pick up that to your option ricky. Stenhouse junior sat right here in this chair on July thirty first on Nascar American motormouth sin told all of us that he had a contract contract through two thousand twenty one he did but as we've seen before that he's in the first driver of this happened to all NASCAR contracts like contracts in general have clauses and some some of those performance clauses and if you don't meet certain performance clauses that gives driver team the option to end void the terms of the deal for the end of the deal so I presume something like that could have happened here. I love next we'll head to Vermont for our fifty states in fifty days tour and we'll give you a sneak peek. A show close goes to jail junior's charts our grassroots racing documenting voiced by junior himself uh-huh and when you ask people Audi St Zimbabwean Edward Teams running people over here want to be here weekend getaway circle the church because there's so many fans that come out there every single me the most important things to give him an opportunity to something. That's really what this is all. There's nothing more important than the small town the grass there's nothing more important. I love racing community is everybody has the same passion and yet they commended for many different to Viva America. I cannot wait for that this weekend so the premise of it is that it was shot on a single day all around the country short tracks everywhere following stories of kids trying to make it guys like Ken Schrader Ladies Raider Yeah. That's Point Kyle L. Is that all all around the that's my point about that is that's. What's so cool can you can you imagine being a young driver and have an and opportunity to race against because he's just a legend. I mean everywhere he and Kenny Wallace. I mean they're still schooling. People man. That's what the whole mitric thing is about their stories. All all around the country like that Nassar happen every Friday Saturday. I mean we simultaneously in all corners of the country. I love documentaries like the whole day in the life. Type can see that's what we tried to capture Dale Earnhardt Jr. certainly behind it. He Boise entire thing over so it's going to be cool to see that this weekend so can't wait for that. It is meanwhile time to continue our fifty states in fifty days tour. We're heading to Vermont's most famous short-track. I'll you've been there. International Speed Ball road is a quarter mile short track that is hosted racing since nineteen sixty. Guess who voted Kenley Squire famer himself is part of the group that built-in. There's a long time owner sell it years ago. This Sunday thunder road hosted signature raced the milk bowl where the winner gets to what Kyle artistic how that was Robert Brown the great little racecar driver. Qiao people delivery rose actually the governor of the state believe even or not Tom. Win of the milk bowl in three time trial champion there. He is going in for the kiss. I WanNa do is the mayor. The governor kissed the counter. Take this kiss your cool with the milk. Would you do this though Kyle would you how would kiss the cow. not sure. I would go back. Catch the rest of that's commitment right there. That is commitment that deserves. Their holy smokes a lot refund. Hey speaking of grassroots racing are very unstable towards Tyler won the outlaw race Saturday night. He's good. I'm not a Grad. He's actually leading the open division standings there rats tyler that same night flying Ryan Montgomery one the between city fifty super late model race at Maryland's Greater Cumberland race track in Tacoma a check for three grand not too bad for that always always good to see that short track racing alive and well they one of NASCAR's young hottest stars also very familiar with grass racing. That's Christopher Bow. We'll talk to him. Next next on motor mounts. Welcome back to motormouth so let's get to some of your calls of course the big news of the day. Ricky stenhouse junior no longer longer. Raushan were racing after twenty nineteen. Chris Butcher will be in the seventeen car starting in twenty twenty. Let's go to Pennsylvania where we hear from Bob. What's happening today. Hey guys how you guys doing tonight on your mind. Hey since Chris Bosh was going to this team next year. my thoughts audits or what what what chance do you think that he can actually get that seventeen in the playoffs next year since two thousand seventeen teen could that'd be a chance you could do it. There's a chance and listen ricky had a chance. This year scored a ton of stage points when we go back and look compared to what Ryan Newman did. They just couldn't put together good finishes. They couldn't put together. A whole race was was there fought. The inconsistency agency of the seventeen in the last segment of the race is really what bit of more than anything else so yeah. I think butcher is as he as he's matured as He's learned the game a little bit more. He can definitely if the car is there. If the car's there and we know for Ryan Newman he can do it in the car has been there so I think that's what the rouch organization is saying. One team can do it. The other team should be able to also representative. Ryan Newman can do it and Chris Bush steady progression at Jd Dorothy the the last three years why now let's go all the way out to New Mexico where we hear from Marie Marie on your mind today we'll get evening guys and I just wanted to say first of all grassroots racing wonderful nineteen sixties. We raised it. ISLIP speedway on Long Island is yes but but anyway my question is I understand that you know ricky. Stenhouse wasn't performing and of course it's a business decision and I understand why I was making that decision but what how long an underperforming driver should be he kept on the payroll at a great point and I think kyle in today's Day and age that leashes a little shorter so for ricky to be be with Russia for what now how many years as a season seven seasons that's pretty Longley shot yeah. I think that yeah I think what determines that is. The patience of the owner an I and all honesty and we see I mean look answer yeah and re. Ricky's not the guy that that that has been. He's been here here for a number of years and now the owner has decided Tom. Daniel Henrik has been here a certain amount of time in the owner has decided time I mean and there's been people in the past where the the owner finally just says enough give and these switch rods and I think ricky has been here long enough. Ricky needs a change to as much as Jack rouch needs to change. Ricky stenhouse needs a change reinvigorate who ricky stenhouse is to get him excited about showing up at the racetrack excited about driving a race car and prove prove what ricky stenhouse can do so. I think in the long term if ricky lands somewhere that's competitive. It'll be good for ricky staff. That's a fantastic point we haven't brought about this actually can be a good thing for house nate. I want good wound up being a good actually had somebody told me that today something can with Rosh say hey we might look back on this and five years in arises as a win win for everybody certainly right now. It doesn't look bad for Stenhouse but I did go to Kyle's point and I feel like stenhouse was was given a long leash for development this team runway racing post Carl Edwards in fifteen sixteen. I think they knew then that hey we're not gonNA post the elite I hear results it might take a few years and then in seventeen he made the playoffs and I think that was exactly what they expected. They thought like he's developing into the star. This superstar are we expected and then the last two seasons again with Ryan Newman's arrival Kansas last year. I think just it did change the game in a way that I think that that discussion was had about like what are we paying this guy versus. How many times does he crashing you know. Can we get somebody better. I think unfortunately this came into play. We love hearing from you. Guys was on the breaking news of the day but coming up next Christopher Bell joins US here on MOTORMOUTH ON NASCAR mirror. Some long awaited news became official yesterday. Christopher Bell will move up to the cup series next season and drive the number ninety. I five Toyota for Levine family. Racing to twenty four year old from Oklahoma has earned fourteen wins in the last two seasons in the NASCAR extending series the most most of any driver. Hey calm by way of facetime. Guess WHO's here with us on the show. Ricky Stenhouse Bell is very. NFL How are you are. You GonNa make you laugh down. Come on right. Sorry we love it. We Love Hey are you. Are you just just relieved that all this has finally official. Christopher man it was it's been a long time coming and a lot of people obviously known known about it or kind of expected it so I feel like it wasn't quite breaking news but I'm glad that it's finally out there well. It wasn't a secret. It's certainly Christopher talk about longtime coming. I thought was interesting what you said yesterday about how really early and this started six or seven years ago. Yes He'd been winning expedia races the last two years but this started way back in like thirteen. Can you take people through that journey yeah. It's it's. It's been pretty crazy to see how it's all come together and I started out the dirt track racer trying to go right by rabbi ride got hired by Keith Tunes motorsports who was fortunately sponsored by Toyota at times and I don't think they really had a driver development program and after after pretty much I replaced Kyle Larson chieftains motor sports and then as Larson took off and became a superstar Toyota racing development started started putting more focus into the dirt track program and luckily for me. I was the next guy in line as as you look and you talk about Toyota how how important has Toyota Ben to your essentially where you are right now well. It's it's been everything if it wasn't for them. I would just be a sprint car racer right now so they're they're the kind of seems like they're the only path from dirt to the NAS car series right now and I'm very fortunate that I'm kind of the founding driver we're of the twitter development program right now so we talk about how this is going to be the next furniture row so how much of Jj our team will this really be next year with a ninety eighty five yeah. It's it's very unique because as you guys know the charter system only allows for full time teams so it's it's definitely. I'm not a gibbs car but we're GONNA have access to information from kids so I think we're going to be able to see kind of what everyone's doing and but we're we're we're going to be our own deal and I'm going to be driving for Lebron family racing and not get very but also having Jason Ratcliffe who of course very familiar with gibbs as your kerchief coming over with you and having Mike Wheeler Competition Directory I I would presume Christopher that makes everything a lot more seamless than coordinate L. A. J. G. R. Yeah. I think that's that's a pretty big piece there just because Jason I already have chemistry. We already have a relationship. He obviously has a ton of cup experience in a ton of Cup wins. with veteran drivers in. Him Atkins clicked really well so I think it's GonNa the best of both worlds for me. Because I understand Jason I trust him. I trusted changes and on the flip side now that he's worked with me on the XFINITY side. He understands how I R. I am as a driver right interstate understands that might have struggles but I feel like because he's worked with me. He's going to be able to support me okay. You talk about Toyota being instrumental instrumental in where you're at this being a separate team we know what Jager has. We know what they can do. You're going to have access to a lot of that. What are your expectations rolling in the next year for this ninety five teen while I think the biggest thing is. How long is it? GonNa take me to get adjusted to the cup cars right now. The rules package between the series in the Cup series is very very different so just getting acclimated to the cup car. I'm not sure how long that's GonNa take but once I get acclimated acclimated. I really hope that I can be competitive with with the Joe Gibbs racing cars and obviously right now they're. They're kind of on top of the game so I. I think that's that's our goal going into next. Year is at some point once I get comfortable in the cars to be able to go toe to toe with my so-called teammates so the Robo was this week talking about the series. I know you said all year long. I'm not a fan of the road courses but that I recall someone in the twenty car. One the most recent road course race in the Trinity Series didn't they was that you yeah so maybe looking more for to the rebel this weekend yeah yeah but I I think it's going to be. It's going to be interesting the new chicane on the back straightaway. It's indeed very very different so our ideal but I'm excited to go. Give it a shot anyway. Hey are you cool. If we take a phone call like fan can ask ask you a question real quick yeah sure awesome Taylor from Texas half Christopher Bell. Oh how are y'all man Wisconsin Christopher's glistening crystals. Are you very excited to be going to cut next year and do you think you'll do very well well. I'm eh obviously extremely excited about going cuff in. I hope I do well. I was just telling these guys. I don't know if you could hear or not but just getting acclimated to the cup cars. I think that's GonNa to be a big a big thing because the rules packages are so different between xfinity cars in the cup cars and then long races are going to be definitely a change for me as well all right. I think we have one more phone call for you brandon from Illinois Brandon. What's on your mind for Christopher today. Hi guys kind of Big Fan Christopher big fan you pretty much showed everybody either way and xfinity to the checkered flag so to speak playing. Everybody else's playing follow the leader. I was curious. Once you get up to cut your challenges would be faced. I know what your expectations are but what kind of challenges be respected. Yeah I think the number one the longer races I have a feeling that's going to be a big adjustment for me. Just because it's kind of an issue my entire career whenever I moved up to the truck series and then they trinity series as well getting longer distance races take some time for me to get I used to and learning how to put it all together so that's number one and number two would obviously be the depth of the field right now. The affinity series we have a couple of cars that are competing waiting for winds weekend and week out whereas next year in the cup series. There's ten twenty plus. Cars are going to be very competitive so eight the length of the races in the depth of field. I think is going to be the two biggest changes. Hey are you. Somebody else's officers that your office the Office somebody whose office coach Gibbs No. We're not not coach kids. They'll give away man. Don't just between us. You can tell me later minutes. You take a tour of a good idea right this as long as you drive a race car. Never have an office man never have an office. I'm just going to take advice right that and you're out petty. You'll get a lot of it over the years. Appreciate you in. Thanks for thanks yeah. I appreciate Christopher Bell Join US here motormouth. I knew you were gonNA. Ask for a time of the artist. I do that coming up next. We'll hear from you. Guys your feedback back on social media at the HASHTAG. Let me say this so that means. It's time for let me say this needs not here. He's GonNa. Redo all these at one time. Like are you. GonNa stop and let's talk about. What's the what the segment was so. Let me say this but we're not saying anything you know. Let me say this. This has turned into the road show and we need eight right now. What happens when nate night or not. There's just rambles through today for the first time yeah. I didn't think we're allowed to do let me say this without you. We're forever and ever ever again restored. Nate Ryan is here. He would say greetings with these on the entire show with your Hashtag. Let me say this feedback a lot of stenhouse house comments. We'll get started with at chassis cat who says Hashtag let me say this wondering if Henrik goes to JT GD or to set up a tweet storm biff will there you go okay yeah. I would bring the great great. Let's start betting the HASHTAG. Let me see this. Bryce says he was not surprised. Longtime coming Ricky has struggled for awhile outside super speedways. Bush might be a better fit with as much talent as he's been able to flash and then let's talk about this when Stacy Hashtag let me see this stenhouse has all the potential in the world but the only places he did his best Daytona Talladega and to further extent Bristol so she also thinks Bush or better fit is that fair is fair to say no statehouse was just a play day risk at the time that he was runs runs really well on the speedway stuff they had really good speedway cars and I think he over outperformed on the speedway. Go back compare him to teammates on the speedways. Yes yes he is a little bit of an ace and you look at it but I don't believe they had the cars on the mile and a half I think they struggled and now they have somebody to gauge of with Ron Newman so it shows shows up a little bit more all right two more we got here. How let me say this. William Bracken also says stenhouse a restrictor plate as under performed every rails newman made the playoffs the expectations increased and it wasn't that surprising so let's hit that let's close out with one more from Dave Hashtag. Let me say this. Joseph new garden will be running an Indycar after qualifying qualifying at the ruble Friday. Dave saw that and he's wondering would Borovo will be a good place for a cup indycar double header. I would say yes yeah. I I agree. Yeah I think it would. I think it'd be a really good place good good this weekend a real quick time for Monday's headlines. Today Nate Eh got. What are we gonNA be talking about after the roble predict the headline on Monday. I'm just going to stay on the Roche fenway racing tip and say Ryan Newman takes the team to the second round of the playoffs offs and ends a very newsworthy week for count. What do you got same thing. I'M GONNA say stenhouse back to route. It's going to be a crash fast man. I can't wait for the they tell it was last year. They've changed. They've got the new breaking zone. We solve Jeff Burton's little emoji there that they have for getting into the chicane down there. A passing zone is crashing zone. Just remember that people I'm GonNa go with true. X. Dominates round one and sweeps wins this weekend yeah and this weekend as well so could happen. Couldn't it into okay cool. We have time for one phone call. I think we have less in a minute. We're going to go for this Marvin blue. How're you doing Marvin. What's going on Marvin. question who you guys are GonNa get divorced. I four out of the playoffs having ooh. I can't remember how pick now I had Ryan Newman out and that's not gonNA happen. I don't think so I think new museum man I think he's kind of making new ones. GonNa make the road court yeah sure that he has pulling for him now. Big Fan of the real I went the other way important got to you got a prediction. All I gotTA essays. I think Eric Jerry Jones out he was did. I did have all right. That'll do it for here on.

TFLW - Zane Smith Daytona Road Course Setup

"Hi, my name's Kerry Murphy Toby. Chris had common up on the final weekly carry you chat with me truck series Winter Zane Smith. Big Big Nascar News of the week coming from Toby Christie Dot Com whoa and of course, our everybody ratty dragon has your fantasy nascar pro style. It's all coming up on the final lap weekly. Is the final weekly. During. The latest NASCAR racing, driver interviews, race preview opinions, discussion rumors, and more. Here's Carrie. Murphy totally crispy. Just a couple of guys talking racer. DFL W is on, you have found the place where we talk about all things NASCAR. My Name is Carrie Murphy. I'm a longtime NASCAR media member and syndicated radio host of all things the final half, our co host for the show Toby Christie, NASCAR editor from the final half dot com social media director from all things up the final lap, and his very own website that he procures is that a word. Puts together, daily Toby Christie dot com. Sweet sweet. What's going on man man so much so much racing going on is what's going on? Yeah real world and virtual by the way there's a lot going on. Yeah. I kinda kind of lost interest in the virtual. Since you know what? Yeah I know I know man that's sponsored race this week. Really your yeah. On its Anthony Alvarado's league. Actually it's the sports racing league. They ran the Toby Christie Dot com seventy minutes of chaos at the Daytona road course it was fun. All right. So how? Does that work out for you get more views and eyeballs and stuff like that? Yeah. I mean, they have people that watch their stream of it and from that I get people to. Recognize my name and go maybe it's check that out. Very cool. That's a good way to do it. That's what I thought. Hey, today on the show we are going to chat or I am going to chat with the Michigan Truck Series Winner Zane. Smith you know it's very first NASCAR truck series win, right? Yeah and he'd been knocking on the door but man he pre. Jumped right through that thing with a wild restart their at the end that was crazy came out of nowhere to take that thing it was pretty fun. Only Rowdy Dragon has your fantasy NASCAR picks and and you're GONNA WANNA. Listen this week because we've got no frame of reference for Daytona road course racing. So that's huge. Yeah. There's no drivers racing really well at the road. Daytona No. In fact, I don't know what to do for that segment I'm still kind of noodling now on noodle away man noodle away. Yeah. Big News of the week coming from you toby. Toby. Christie DOT COM. Okay. You don't know about this. No. Okay. Well, you'll have to stay tuned for your own stuff then. All right. It was that big. Yeah. It's massive. It's huge. Okay. Yeah. Michigan Double. Recap they race Saturday, and Sunday. Yeah. They did that it was pretty fun The first day was a little more exciting. The second day I thought well, okay I mean it says double shot of Nascar Cup series racing from Michigan last weekend where race number one went down on Saturday Kevin. Harvick led ninety, two of one, hundred, sixty, one laps. One both stages total domination of the race took the checkered flag for the third time in the last four Michigan races let's hear from K. H. anytime we come to Michigan. Since I've been in stewardess racing these cars have been just lightning fast and it's It's definitely place that we feel like we should come up here and contend for the win. You know today are Bush lied Apple Ford Mustang was on rails could go bottom top middle was fast down the straightaway would do everything that you wanted to do just. Challenge my whole bunch of restarts at the end. That made it Kinda crazy but in in the end it was a great day for US everybody did a great job called the great race and we capitalized on Bass car and put it in Victory Lane and Kevin Harvick's GonNa talk to us about pj one everybody's favorite topic and of course every second topic track position well, I think the best thing about it is they had raised with yesterday with the truck series made a lot of adjustments or you know a few adjustments this morning to the process and I thought it went well today It definitely gave some guys a chance that bad to you know we're kind of buried eighth or ninth and I think card was one of those and wound up racing for the win. So definitely. A lot to think about right there, and definitely some processes that you that you have to go through and but you can take a chance and gain some track position and and you know so I thought it went well and did exactly what everybody thought. It would do I love settling in on the couch and and tuning in the NASCAR race with A. Big Old Bowl of PJ one. It's so good It's so good especially when you watch down track position yes. All those two things together. So tasty you add in like a test session on top of that and you are in heaven absolutely by the way we don't condone bowls of PJ. One consumption. No, we definitely want you to wash it down with your position. Case you were wondering if we were kidding or not. Yeah. So brackets laskey came at one spot short of winning at his home race track. It is so elusive for all Michigan drivers. Yeah. He would have been the first Michigan born driver, but he had a chance to second data possibly do it. So we'll talk about that in a minute, but maybe that was a bummer forum is to find out if you did or not. I'm sure we'll find out something about Martin Tricks Junior was Third Ryan Blaney fourth and Kyle Busch rounds out the top five. Hey, saw top five for Kyle Busch. That's the way to kind of rebound around here I'm sure he wind as well. So, critical of him. Absolutely. That's my job. Okay. So I mean, but what a battle in those closing laps Denny Hamlin Kevin Harvick holy cow. You didn't think it was a good battle. Think you're thinking of the second day? Is it the second? Okay, well, copy and paste that and pretend I said that after the second race of that so I mean it's epic. I mean, you know Harvard won the first Kozelsk in seconds I don't think it was a battle between any handling and Kevin Harvick in the end. That's true I. You know if I would use my brain once in a while, I would've probably thought of that but I'm just going off the notes here. But so on Saturday Kevin Harvick won both stages. And of course, we we mentioned cap it off with the race win. That's a whole lot of playoff points in one day, I wait till. You see the point standings I mean it kind of reflects that yeah, it's pretty. Wild. But those playoff points they carry through the playoff system thing it's great. Yeah. So I mean. It's great. I think with what he's been accomplishing here. Lately, you're going to have to Chisel Kevin Harvick into homes to our home said Phoenix. Yes at the end of the season. So this is, can we got almost like a full race Mulligan at this point I think he's got like a two or three race mulligan maybe even more. Yeah. Good. It's good to be Kevin Harvick that's for sure a John Hunter Nima check not good to be him in the the early stages this race I, think he brought out like nine or ten cautions pretty close. He had three incidents brought three separate yellow flags that brings his incident total for the season up to fifteen. This year is more than anyone in the cup series. That's not good. That's not a good stab at all. That's the exact opposite of Kevin Harvick. Yeah, yeah. So his instance per star point six eight to so. He's he's getting close to that one incident police range and Cole custer wrecked another forty-one car not too happy. Was Tony Stewart. I'm guessing yeah I wouldn't imagine, but he does have the win in his back pocket. So he's in the playoffs they're kind of trying things and just kind of rolling the dice here at this point I. Think. So you know a crashes. Okay. As long as you know, it doesn't become a lingering problem each and every week Ryan Newman and Austin Dillon decided to tangle cars three divisible into six by two hustle math I'll take your word for that. I don't know where that came from actually at I. Think my I have a hemorrhage or something. Have you been doing like some home schooling with your children are probably all the homeschooling this week. was wondering what's going on a living hand carries not usually with a man? No no I can't even copy and paste properly so. All. Right. Let's Sunday now race number two in the Double Kevin. Harvick what's this? He did it again. Well, it's sweeping the weekend leading only ninety laps this time though I mean he did better on the first day he does take the season Lee with six wins now and he did it by battling the guy with five wins Denny. Denny Hamlin that what a battle Crazy Vattel epic, and this is the first time you're hearing this. Yeah. It was actually a really good battle I know a lot of people talk a lot of smack about this this performance package on these cars that doesn't really lend itself to passing which you could still argue that's the reason handling wasn't able to get around at the end because once he got to him Harvard his way and that was where things kind of stalled out but it was still pretty impressive to see didn't bill to chase them down. Every time, we'd lose a little bit. He built work his way right back up there and have a shot but. Just was never able to set up a winning pass formula to get around him, but it was it was interesting at least compelling finish. Absolutely I think if they had one more lapd, any have caught him you think I think so. Okay but they didn't. So we'll never know and in doing. So I think Kevin Harvick. wins a pretty important race here too important races in fact. For the manufacturers that's for sure and he talks about winning Ford's backyard. Well, Michigan is is just a overall, an important race for no everybody at Ford fry she hates and and really all the teams they they make you well aware of of the importance of the heritage trophy and how much they wanNA keep it in their lobby. So you know I got a nice tax from edsel. Ford, last night to make sure that. He knew that that I knew how happy he was but he made sure that I was well aware that they didn't want to keep it one day and they wanted to bring back. So we're just really happy for everybody at Ford are. Bush Light Apple. Ford Mustang was really fast again day. I. Had a little bit of trouble there at. The end in three and four, and any was really really good down there. So we're able to do a little defensive driving and back there make victory lane again and can talk about what makes his twenty twenty season unique. Well, I think that makes it unique first off and and just the circumstances that that it takes to get to the racetrack That just goes into. You know how prepared our team is the details that they're covering to. Get the cars right. Get them close and come to the race track and watch the pit crew, Perform Watch Rodney make great calls, and you know gets racing the car on the race track and do the best I can so On the days when when things aren't going like we want him to with the handling of the race car we'd figure out a way to. Have some bit bit strategy restarts or what they have a great pitstop on pit road. When one side of its downers. To to pick up the pieces on the other side, that's that's what it takes to You know to run well weekend and week out because in the circumstances that were in, you just not gonna hit it every week you just going to have to battle through it and Try to have the best day that you can. So as far as you know where it ranks, it's it's really hard I just I. Just I don't think about things like that I just week to week, and as you get to the end the season, you can kind of sit back and and really look back on the things that have happened and that's been a the same thing that we'll do this year but it's been a great year. Can argue with that and we're GONNA. Let us crew chief talk a little bit here on Rodney Children's on the incredible twenty twenty season the four cars having yeah. Man is definitely one of the best ones we've had as a group. You know you said something about two, thousand, eighteen in two, thousand, eighteen was a special year with winning. Winning eight points races and the All star race have nine. Total was a great year for us in a great year for our company to you know I think that year sewer hostage won eleven races. So you know this year is ranked tried up there It's been a great year for us and. like you said, there's still a lot of racist to go and a lot of races that we can go in and You know your goal was always to go and and try to win all of them and That's probably not going to happen but you know that's what we try to try to do and put our best foot for boy. Oh, boy Mr Excitement Rodney Children's Yeah. I just let them go for a little bit too i. needed a nap while. Hopefully everybody's still here with US yeah, yeah. Heck of a kerchief. Very excited and that's probably why he's actually such a good crew chief. He doesn't let things bother and bright or get him to wind up. But man, it does not make for compelling radio sometimes Kevin Ties Rusty Wallace on the all time wins list isn't doing that like every week now? Yeah. Fifty five career wins. He passes Lee Petty. Now who was tied with fifty four he's passing some pretty big names. You got all excited about Clint Boyer winning a stage. It was all over social media man. Recap every stage of every race. So it's not like it was any different. It just seemed like a little extra for Clint. Did did yeah. Like you know he's paying your something, I mean, it was the same one post that I post for every stage winner. Okay. Maybe you just saw that one maybe that that was it. That was the only one I saw Kevin one the other one. So yeah I mean, you saw mean I wrote three stage winner articles about him this week but the Clinton was the only one I saw and made note of somehow. You know toby's excited Brad Keselowski rectus teammates just flat out Rectum Ryan Blaney. Van and of course, Brad did own up to it and apologized to blaney saying that Blaney did not deserve what happened He had a run he was going for the lead they were battling for the lead. and. Lost control his car down the bomb. Lame. Went right up into Blaney of car owners worst nightmare by the way, the two teammates taking each other race battling for the win. And that that's a bummer for those guys Ryan should go have a little meeting closed closed-door meeting with Roger and say you sure about this thing for next year and Brad. I know Brad's very lucky. He signed that contract. No joke that this week would not be the one to re sign someone like that. What if he just goes you're wrecking his teammates now that he signed. Yeah. Maybe he's a mole being paid by another team. Wow. Do you think that could be thing that all that would be awesome. Let's start podcast. That would that would be compelling. I'd love to cover that story. That would be cool. Are you work on that? Cup series point standings after a double shot of Michigan. Let's run down ten to one. I'll take the the loser half Kurt Busch Kyle Busch Eric Merola Martin tricks, junior, and Joey Logano toby takeaway with the top five. Yeah. In at Fifth Chase Elliott Ryan Blaney at number four, we've got Denny Hamlin sitting there with five wins third in the standings Brad Keselowski with his three wins hit second points and Kevin Harvick is your point later by a hundred and thirty seven points. With six wins. That is incredible. That is getting it done if you're looking for one hundred and thirty seven points in the bedroom to have you tried blue dot com me now I've heard good things I've heard very, very good things really really good thing. I don't know what that transition was but I guess it works. I mean I think a hundred and thirty seven points sounds like a pretty good amount to get from what you did in the veterans got to be a good thing right. So if you need some help in the bedroom and you've been putting it off because it might be embarrassing, you don't want to go to the Doctor Trust me I'm a guy I hate going to the doctor and especially for something like this this is discreet, easy online ordering you chat with Dr Get it all set up it's the same active ingredients as my Agra and So I mean, there's your helping the bedroom that shows up in the mail and you don't have to get embarrassed and it's that's kind of cool. I think that usually leads to really good thing. So I like chewable things anything chewable is is kind of tasty and good absolutely. Yeah. It's better than the whole like here. Give give this horse pill swallowed and hope for success on marked packaging, which is also good too right yes. That is actually a really huge anytime you're buying anything. That you don't really want people to know. It's kind of crucial to have packaging. Doesn't say he bought it he bought it. He's over here. He's got it. Right? I mean how many times has your neighbor accidentally got your mail. You don't want that situation, right? We actually have that happen quite often my wife buys things on Amazon all the time and they will land at our next door neighbors house and she always has to bring it over and I'm so sorry, put it at my house. Yeah. So it happens often then I'm sure it happens with these kind of things. Well so you get the discreet packaging go have to worry about pretty sweet. All right.

On the final lap for the very first time winner this past weekend Zane Smith welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. All right. So I mean, this is huge. This is massive for you. Has it all sunk in yet Yeah. Pretty much it on on Monday when I became. A really busy. So Than nonstop, pretty much still going actually as we talk and so just this ready get back Grayson again and hopefully another chequered flag and. Busy. Yeah. It seems like once you get one of them, Kinda WanNa make collection I would guess as a driver that's kind of a big thing. So take us through those closing laps I mean what? A battle rex happening all over the place and and somehow you cross the street I yeah. We we add dramatic date daily. We read a truck just started out with. A pit road penalty at the end of Stage one and set us back man Got Back to think it was like eighth or so and At a little bit different strategy came in for fuel only got US track dish, which is huge in the truck series and so once we came out as leader and we're coming to WANNA to go the green and start final stage and I have a I had a flat rate career so that set us back again and We just really never gave up and We kept just inching towards the French and towards the front and then a restart in fifth. And Just. Got Out and I came out term four come to the white and second and got a big run on eighteen and. And made my move work and Luckily, we're come home with my first truck win and then dramatic fashion that was a total power move on your part. But looking back I'm sure you saw the replay, there were at least two rex going on. Are you surprised that NASCAR didn't throw the caution? Yeah. Yeah. I, knew they weren't because we're already in overtime and and I think we had three in a row so and the sun was going down as well. So I knew that they wanted to to get it in an outlet, the the daylight runar show. So I, think that was kind of a little bit of. The reason for the cost of they're kind of going for trying to get these playoffs. Yeah. Those cameras are always tricky on you because they when you're watching on. TV, they show at brighter than it actually is This has got to be huge for you and your race team and your sponsor. I mean the whole thing all in one shot from this win yeah yeah. My. My whole situation It's been a group of investors behind me since I was about seven years old and and to not only gets the top through sheer series the NASCAR. But to win it to win there is pretty printing special. It's obviously your first win the season which a pull vaults you into the playoffs that's gotta be pretty big to the ad that. I didn't even think about it when I across start finish line and. So, palm for my first truck win and then i. went to go grab my flag and he told me welcome to the playoffs and that's what really at home and and just really touched big weight off my shoulders. I'm sure at growing up racing you had envisioned what Victory Lane would be like I'm sure you didn't imagine. Masks and lack of media and and team members and all that kind of stuff. But I'm sure it was still pretty huge yet it is absolutely huge I met arrays fan so much and I. I've gained such fan base that's here, which is so cool to see over my twitter and. Instagram facebook you name it it's just see every I. don't see you guys in person by the tweets and all your support and. It, it just means the world to me and so I? mean. Yeah. The One. Of the biggest things that sucked was I couldn't celebrate in Victory Lane with my team but we're celebrating all the plane ride home. So I still specially garlicy we got where master definitely definitely we're on with. Zane Smith from the truck series recent winner, and now besides yourself you've got consider yourself. I'm sure a threat for the championship who out there is going to be big competition for you. Yeah. I mean I think just the those trucks that we've. Raised to weekend and week out I don't really have any wants to sit. At the moment but we're also I mean midseason. So little early in the year to just. Pinpoint those those guys that are going to be tough to be but I. Don't Know Man I. Think we're we've been pretty good every single week we've been putting ourselves in contention. We have the I think the most stage win this year So it's just. Keep on doing what we've been doing and keep on. Getting shot at again the. Black, and white checkered flag Enough of the green and white one. So I only one one legit one. So like we've given away about three wins this year to be honest just from down little mistakes or bad luck whatever it is it's Just a couple of them. So I don't know that first one is the hardest one to get so. They come a little year. Now that's what they say. Everybody always says that that that first one is hard to put together and then the rest come a little bit easier. I wouldn't say they're easy to get. That's for sure. Hey, let's talk about this weekend Daytona road course you find yourself on the poll. That's got to be a big deal for you. I'm sure because you know you don't want to see anybody in front of you. Yeah. Yeah. Especially for this weekend, picked a good time to win. The new qualifying format or whatever so. I don't know you. You know as much as I know going into this weekend, it's just there's a lot. The unknown really don't know what to expect, but I guess I'll be the first one to tell you and I'll be the first one to see it. You know so. this hope for the Bath GonNa my first road course race. In a car I have a lot of road course racing experience through go-carts, imagine cars and whatnot. So got some experience. There's nothing dot, but it's GonNa be a lot of fun. How do you plan for something like that? You'RE GONNA turn to I racing or something like that? Well. Unfortunately. I don't have an IRA thing that up or anything I'd like one but I don one helmet but fortunately Through the support of team Chevy and we we get a lot of time on the Miller Chevy simulator. So I've done a good bit of lap there Long with the rest of tracks I haven't really been to this year. So it doesn't go through. You'RE GONNA, get they do a great job. With that thing it's close as close as they can and Just to to get US ourselves and not only the drivers but the teams try setups different different deals get ready. So that's all we got, and that's all these teams are laying it on so Forcefully. We don't get practice which It's crazy to me but I guess I've. Plainfield this weekend yeah. Here's a brand new racing setup for NASCAR You guys just a go at it. No practice qualifying best of luck to you. Yeah. Literally it that that's all. That's literally all it is. The thing that's been bugging me yours. I'll hear people say, Oh, well to even playing field and yeah, that's not the case at all. This is my I've done eleven or twelve truck starts and really green off a lot of experience and I'm racing against I mean true like veterans of the sport they've been doing it since they were eighteen years old. So they've been around a long time for example, Texas it was my. First time seeing the place, and so we let a lot there and content for a win against Kyle Busch, which is I mean arguably the best is Texas. So I heard of. No he's got a cowboy hat or two but we get another shot at Texas. Oh play I'm able to feel that one one of the biggest fan questions we get as we we know what the drivers drive for their job. What are they drive around town? What? What do you drive in? What's your daily driver these days so funny at actually so I have a My daily as A. Twenty. Nineteen. Chevy Silverado Nice Jeff with. Nikon lift on it. ultra wheels and Yeah so Nothing too crazy but I actually just got and it's on its way to my house as we talk nineteen, sixty, seven, Volkswagen Beetle just a little weekend cruiser. So really looking forward to a person it's nice in the pictures but Hula Card a cruise around dogs and for sure speaking of little cars I'm guessing you're going to buy your your race winning Lionel die-cast when it comes out right I. Yeah. I know I'm counting the days till I get him out make sure everyone in front of those that I really wish people able to see that truck in person Gm I have to say comes up with Probably, the best design of race cars that I've ever been a part of and I'm a I'm a big fan of neon yellow on race cars that is. That is my That's my best. My Love. stands out for sure. Yep So Daytona will be a really cool on as well we have the PAS Margarita mix on the truck Sunday with really really bright blue with like fluorescent Red Reddish orange. So you won't be able to be so hopefully regional winning that WANNA gets more die cast cars made out. All right awesome stuff from Azan Smith thank you so much for being on the final lap. Best of luck sitting on the pole at Daytona road course this weekend and throughout the rest of the season. Thanks so much for being on the final APP. All right. Thank you very much. Like us at facebook dot com slash the final lap. Final Lap weekly is back. Here's your host Kerry Murphy and Toby Christie just a couple of guys talking racing. Welcome back the final. AP Weekly My name is Carrie Murphy Milan. LONGTIME NASCAR media memory syndicated radio host of all things. The final lap are co host for the show Toby Christie Nascar editor from the vital APP? Dot. COM and social media director from at the final lap I'm not sure why I'm saying that way now. That's weird. Yeah. You sound like you're in radio guy voice mode to that's pretty fun. Emphasis is on the wrong. Salah. Bill. The that ruins things Yeah Toby Christie Dot COM is where our news of the week is happening and music must be cute. Here, so you know this is your your wheelhouse I'll let you take. Eric Jones says he was blindsided by the news that he's been cut from. Joe Gibbs Racing's lineup for twenty twenty one driving there twenty car. Eric of course, we know as two cup series wins and has made the playoffs last two seasons. So it's a bummer for him. I was really kind of hoping. He'd said recently the. Going well, thought it was going great. Yeah and then a couple of days later he's gone and you know what you do you fired from your job. By a vehicle that's the exact same manufacturers the one you just got brand spanking new. If you lose your job, that's what I would do. Yeah. That sounds pretty. RACECAR. World would that happen right right. But now he's kind of limiting himself. I mean what Chevy wants them right now they're like, yeah. Well, you got that Tundra. Yeah. That's you said Hash tag team Toyota. Shredded. So anyway, with that being said, Eric's out of the twenty car who will drive the twenty car next season. He well wonder how much of a surprise at all even you knew it you saw Cowan Kerry the guy who was announced to be out of Rye because Levi and family leave. Racing I'm GONNA be sad. We can't do that anymore. After slaying their charter. Chris rebel, of course goes from the Ninety Five Card or the twenty car next season. He says quote I'm extremely excited to return Joe Gibbs racing starting in twenty twenty one it's an organization I'm very comfortable with and have had lots of success with in quote. Yeah. Wait till you get on Jo's bedside. You're in that car that they seem to always shuffle the guy out of so right good luck. Christopher Bell Thom Gibbs is coming by the way Eric really was blindsided by this news. was He literally the only one in the entire sport who didn't know this? Well, I think he was blindsided by the fact that he was let go I mean he'd literally was just saying a couple of days beforehand, he and his agent that talks were going. Well, they always say that this is before L. Far announced they were closing down. So the second that happened, it seems like that's when things get expedited and that's when he became expendable. Rumored since he took the seat well obviously, but it was even rumored last year but he seems to always find a way to keep his keep a spot there and. Who knows the talks might have been pretty well because they might have thought they can keep Christopher Belmont Ninety five for one more year. And kind of play things out and see what they needed to do after that. But. That was not an option when the ninety five team closed down. Heya. BUBBA Wallace, another sponsorship is coming his way from Columbia sportswear starting at Dover and for another two races this and another two will be announced at a later date. He said quote on beyond excitable three total. Okay the the Dover then two races that will be announced at a later date not to this season, and then another two that will be analysis Dover and another two races. This season. That's three. Yeah to be announced this season. Oh and then you said another two that will be announced at a later date. I'm being optimistic maybe heck you. He said quote I'm beyond excited to be part of the Columbia family. I can't wait to work with them on some unique content and fly their colors next weekend at Dover and quote. So this is of big I mean I don't remember Colombia being in the sport before. Yeah. Now, this is a brand new sponsorship and it's a big company. This is this is kind of interesting. We're seeing sponsors kind of working their way into the sport that haven't really been here before in a time where the teams deemed the most during this pandemic. So this is pretty big and for bubble Wallace this. This. Is Big for him as well because it seems as though this is obviously them partnering with him not partnering with a specific team so it seems if he goes somewhere. This is going with them We'll see kind of transferable. Yeah. So we'll see how that works out but. I believe it looks as though they're they're tied to him and not the race team. So even other sponsoring the car, it looks like be sponsoring would riccar bubble Wallace's in. While that's pretty huge seems to be looking good for BUBBA. Yeah. Cash apps jumped on of course, worldwide technology when they announced move into the forty three car that that was You know primarily because bubbles was the driver so. There's a lot of positive stuff going here about laws. He's building up a bunch of corporate sponsorship this this looks like an off season. This is the perfect offseason for him to be a free agent. It seems definitely definitely now there was some Hendrika news they've got some sponsorship dollars coming their way to. So this is interesting because at cronies which has been the is that how you said I, don't know. Cronies across a Akron cronies Nazi right now you don't think. So cronies I remember getting it on my foot one time and I just I use some cream. It cleared it. We'll work on the pronunciation of that. But regardless they having to multiyear marketing and technology relationship with Hendrick motorsports, they will be a sponsor on the eight car for three races. This season will be on everybody's firesuits Hendrick motorsports, and a little small decal and other cars as well for next season as well. So. This is this is big and this is a sponsor that was at Roush, fenway racing as much as early as this is like recent as this year like just a few weeks ago they were on the cars. So wow, this is this is a a swap of sponsorship mid season if you're following social media on Nascar Wednesday you would see from Rosh fenway racing big news coming your way soon huge massive new just that. And so it already like, wow, this can be big and then the the graphic they used really threw people off because it had. You Know Jack Rouse and then in the bottom corner had young Jack Rouse. So you get two doses of jacker out like, okay. Whatever you got Carl Edwards doing a backflip in the top corner and you're like, okay, wait a minute. The could there be any way is this really could could they have gotten him back? What's going on here right but no that was not the case and it fell flat wasn't it? Just a sponsor? Yeah. Guaranteed rate which I mean this is a big deal for that team I will say that but hyping it up to be such big news. Yeah. if that was a good call, but you don't get to use that again now. Yeah. So guaranteed rate which was on six car back at New Hampshire a few weeks ago. As actually, you're going to extend their deal. It was a one race deal. They've now added eleven more to it, which makes it a twelve race deal They'll be in eleven of the last fourteen races of the season including this week at Daytona throw course and the last race of the Phoenix. All right speaking of road course racing at Daytona. I have been calling for this for a long time. You have kind of been on board with as well NASCAR car racing from Daytona, this weekend but not the three wide you're in the middle pack racing that you're used to. That's going to be in a couple of weeks. No, my friends this weekend. It will play out on the Infield road course as well. We haven't done an evil laugh. We should do that more often. Yeah. Perhaps that's what the the mascot of this track will be. Now I just WanNa do evil laughs. Yeah. Of course. So that's breaking it down for people who don't know about this course obviously, the Rolex twenty four runs a very close Of course, they're gonNA have an extra chicane down the front stretch to kind of slow speeds down Yup because they were gonna be going over two hundred miles an hour under the turn. But yeah. So we're at a three point six, one mile road course here Daytona track features high banks of the Oval with a couple of chicanes and they dive into the Infield. So that's pretty cool. It is. That's a big road course by the way huge. Yeah. Almost Road America ask yeah. I mean there's there's several bathroom breaks built into that because that's what I'm about drivers stop along the way are cool at the bus stop I'm going be right exactly. All right. I. Got Your I. Got Your status, Your Cup series race sixty, five laps, two, hundred, thirty, four, point, six, five miles and your stages come at lap fifteen, lap thirty, and then the balance of. The races twenty four laps pending a green white checkered. Of course. Really Cool. By the way of go bowling to pick up the sponsorship of this race, they were originally scheduled to sponsor the Watkins Glen Race which would give them a chance to just kind of say. Now we're done with you guys that that racism happening we're just gone but instead they picked up the option to to sponsor this race, which is really cool. Did you say pickup I did like a spare? Yeah. Did you like that? That was nice play on words right? Did you really do that or am I just pick up on something that didn't really matter I mean I did it Right? You can. Think amongst yourself whether I did it on purpose Kevin Harvick is the pole sitter. We already know this due to the newfangled nobody understands way that NASCAR is setting the lineups including the drivers if you listen to Zane specially. Actually you can say that people don't know how to do it. I have a guy on my staff Justice Wrigley who understands this thing down to like every bit of it he had the lineup like four days ago before the thing even like was even thought about done. So he's kind of your guy if you haven't followed him on twitter follow Matt Joe Underscore Wrigley. S.. R.. I G. L. E. Y.. Those lineups before Nascar does should You know consult with the driver's Kazan Smith our guest this week had no idea. So yeah, it's a pretty complicated meth by the way I don't I don't understand why it has to be this complicated. Why would just throw every name into a hat? Everybody has a chance of the polar has a chance at last done. So we got Kevin Harvick. On the pole then Denny Hamlin Starts Second Martin Junior Kyle Busch Joey Logano Eric Merola, Chase Elliott Kurt Busch Matt Benedetto and Austin Dillon is your top ten which at this place. That's probably where you're winter's coming from more than likely. But out this is a wild unpredictable race. There's GonNa be some crazy strategy along the way as there always is it Roku pitch tragedy could be key. You never know there could be somebody from way deepened pack that pulls something off how about a galley Jimmy Johnson almost one, the roble the first time out here starting eleventh I did look that one up there. Yeah. So not his usual twentieth which he was getting in those random draws site. So we I have exclusive. Audio of the back. DOOR DEALING MEETING THAT NASCAR put out on this razor LE. Let's let's do that now. Boys. Yes. Daytona road course racing. Ain't going to be no practice. May going to be no qualifying. Best of luck to you boys. Green flag. flies. We're GONNA be laughing. So, there's a diabolical laugh. It makes sense now who yeah. So we got a chance to use it right away. Glad we practiced. Yeah. So the interesting thing you were talking about no practice or anything on this racetrack. Tried to circumvent that rule at least NASCAR thought. So the the GM racing team and the extremity series with driver Alex. Energy SCC race at the Nascar Daytona road course. an xfinity car. Pretty much okay. and That's a no no NASCAR anybody testing out anything before the race. So of course, NASCAR officials are at the track they stop them about. Seven minutes and trying to get on track and park and they penalized the team seventy five owner points. Seventy five driver points I think twenty five thousand dollars as well, which is pretty big expanding series team penalty but this week the National Moore's appeals panel has overturned that L. to penalty. And they get their points and their money back. How is that? That is pretty crazy. Yeah. We don't see that very often and I thought for sure with all the overwhelming evidence that they had done something the various here. That this would definitely not overturn but apparently, there was at least more to the story than what we know because this was not upheld by the by the national motorsports appeals panel. All right and we've seen how often things get overturned by that panel never. Yeah. So there must have been something pretty compelling in that argument. All right. We got a lot of racing this weekend. All the series inaction xfinity is going down at three PM Saturday on NBC that one's a fifty two lapper truck series and cup series. Make note of this is a Sunday doubleheader truck series is first noon. Sunday F s one that's a forty four lapper and then the big show the cup series race Sunday. Three PM EASTERN ON. N.. B. C. being being being drivers doing Dandy at the Daytona road course. This is the first one. Yeah. So I mean I guess if we wanted to talk about anyone. We. Could talk about this. You guys have been like road races, road races as of late between chase. Elliott and Martin. Shirks. Junior, they've been pretty good at these places. Yeah. Yeah. I guess. You might maybe possibly throw Kyle Busch into the mix because Iran are ran a rolex right The possibly. So if we're GONNA talk about tricks, he's got four wins at road courses with ten top five, fifteen top tens, an average of fourteen point one at the road courses. So that's pretty sporty and I like your chase Elliott, like going with that because he does do well there at at road courses I'll let me pull up his stats here. Those tracks. Let me see here. What about Kevin Harvey does well to I think you know Kevin Harvick's pretty much good everywhere right as far as. Chase Elliott though he has ten starts on road courses in his career and has three wins. That's good odds. Yes. That's pretty good. He's got four top five as well. Six top tens and a pole average finish at road courses in baseball. That's batting three hundred, which is you know hall of fame that's pretty solid. That's that's getting a minute hold on. That was another math thing for me and I think I think it was correct. Yeah. That was your what is up with? You know this homeschooling thing is working for you that's supposed to be working. And then when you talked about Bush has four wins at road courses in his career eleven fives nineteen top tens, two Poles and average of thirteen point eight I know why we're talking about polls anymore they're not qualifying. No. Exactly exactly. You know who also has some thoughts on who might do well at the the Daytona Course who's that Rowdy Dragon he's going to have your fantasy NASCAR picks for the Daytona road course and he is next on T.. F. L.. W.. Psych, US at facebook dot com slash final lap final lap. Weekly getting you ready for this weekend's race. Gang thanks for sticking around for this week's final lap weekly and dig. Today will look back at both Michigan races take a look the Daytona road course and as I promised by fleet I'm going to give you your top ten rundown looking back at Michigan the first race stage one you winner for that was myself Rowdy Dragon about that. Stage to. We, the people. And the wind went to we the people my finish of sixth place. Called me up to four over on the standings and Toby Christie had a not so good day. One hundred seventh, which dropped him from eighth to fifteenth in the standings. and carry forty-eight fan boy you finished in the eighty first spot. In that, pull up to one, hundred, sixteen th in the standings at the second Michigan race the first stage winner was class of eighty two. Who went on to take the second stage. Cleaning up on bonus points in the winner for Michigan two point. Oh Kevin Matt's. I finished in the seventh position still maintaining my fourth spot in the league toby another not so good day. One hundred twenty ninth place finish. Sliding down to nineteenth in these standings carry. Murphy. forty-eight fan boy you finished in the eighty fourth spot. Claimed a couple positions into one hundred fourteenth. Okay. So today, we will look at some drivers that have some track time at the Daytona road course starting with the number eighteen kyle busch. He has the most recent track experience by running the Twenty Twenty Rolex Twenty four which earned him twenty sixth place finish. The finish however is not important. The track time he's had should pay big dividends in the end. He's in my lineup for sure the second driver that could make my lineup is the number forty eight Jimmy Johnson he has had seven Rolex twenty four is under his belt that big time track time over the competition. I'm hoping can make some noise on Sunday, and lastly we'll take a look at the forty one car Cole custer. He has had recent labs run in the I M S A pilot challenge in both twenty, eighteen and twenty nineteen with third ninth place finishes respectively. Hopefully that's a little food for thought, for your lineups coming Sunday now under the top ten for the final lap weekly fantasy list starting in tenth place we have what the F. who probably saying that to himself after the duals at Michigan in ninth place we the people making a lot of noise over the weekend. eighth-place Jamar also been consistently good. seventh-place, father of, Loki. That would be zips. I've been chopping it up with him on the the league chat. Board. Incidentally, you can hit us up there if you have any questions, need to know anything. there's a little league chat board on the overall league standings page at a good place to get any questions answered otherwise look for us on the social. Media. Platforms. And six place children's trio. fifth-place class of eighty to. Read a great run on Sunday and. Really had me worried he was going to take my fourth spot from me in fourth. I maintained obviously now the top three Byron for the win Diaz is racing. And Dale do all strong performance this season, not much movement amongst those top three at the moment. Already, that's it for this week will thank you for sticking around and listening to the final weekly fantasy update. I'm Rowdy Dragon until next time. All right.

the last couple of years it has yeah but yeah no solid ice fish for him i'm sure he's happy to get a top ten i know you wish he'd have a win but considering piled up but a few incidents in this race ninth place isn't so bad and he was pretty fast all weekend so he at least has that hangs hat on ryan blaney was the defending race winner and nachos and other top senate that i want to say that track but that configuration of that track yeah and he had some issues in this thing too i think he'll look tire rubber something towards interest does things the fact that he pulled out a top ten was pretty good too there for a little while look like maybe ryan blaney was the NBA in danger of not advancing the playoffs but he was able to rally it all back together in i and get a good finish road course ace martin tricks junior at number seven there yeah and again you kind of expect more martin tricks junior he started dead last after his weird fiasco in practice where he shifted the wrong gear and blew the motor and they had to do them in the and change transmission change worked up to the field pretty good i don't remember what got him back to seven because he was running for the win here late so i'm not sure how he ended up seven they kinda faded there in that last little last little run william byron was he led a bunch of laps here's the pole sitter nice nice to see him doing well brad keselowski at number five clint boyer wow that's like racing his way into the next round basically yeah and he's been kind of a road racer over the years as well i go back to william byron though this guy that nancy loss over somebody you always want to go back well i'm not going to go to laskey because he just ask you things and we expect good things but william byron has had a heck of a season he's turned things around for sure from his rookie year i think this guy's gonna start winning some very soon i it seems like they've been building and building liam building they're putting down great qualifying efforts all season long they're getting race finishes as well now i've got a feeling that twenty four cars going to victory lane sometime very soon actually i want to go back to brad kozlowski early really in the race they showed his car and his right front wheel was wobbling like a gosh i don't know a shopping cart is i think what retard said and i don't know how he managed a fifth place finish yeah it's kind of wild when you look at what was going on there obviously there was something not quite right but you know 'cause i ask excuse a consummate professional and it definitely didn't deter him from having a good run but that could have been kept him from victory lane so had that not been the problem yeah who knows how how high up kiosks have been all right now we've got to leapfrog to kevin harvick at number three and alex bowman all my moves into the next round just barely let's hear from his team owner rick hendrick nobody tries any harder than than alex does he just didn't give i'm up i mean he and he was quick but he i mean he just refused to lose today and i thought man if he gets up better chased ace we might have a problem but but now he alex is committed he's one hundred percent in greg that's such a good team i'm excited to see see where they're going to go here in the next round but but he did you know when you think about where he came from and finished second that was unbelievable proud proud of him how the hell did alex bowman finished second i don't know and i mean that is that is quite the effort and then when you see him get out of the car and collapsed to the ground yeah wow so we were talking about the new thing this was the thing alex bowman was going to be definitely short of making it to the advance of the playoffs else here because he had had a rough night lap one and he had to start near the back of the pack even though you scheduled start second but had practice crash in the last minute of practice so he started the very back crashed on lap one did not look very good kept having mistakes throughout the day got into a bubba bubba walls on the track later on and spun bubble walls on purpose got into another accident staged too so it was a rough day in it did not look like there was anything to salvage frogs bom and then all of a sudden this last little run the race alex bow oh in his starts picking up position after position position before you know it my goodness there is in second place what the heck he was a man on a mission and what a good friend bubba wallace says i i mean he is just a standup guy he saw his good friend alex bowman suffering heat exhaustion and he he came over and poured some water on him that was pretty nice of him to put some i'm cold drink on on the very warm i don't think it was meant that way obviously about the video oh but yeah so i want to also say this though i don't bubble also getting a lot of flack on social media about you know attacking even if you wanna call it attacking he threw liquid on a guy but while he was getting medical attention engine and i do agree that yeah you don't mess with people and they're going to medical medical attention but the same time bubble walls had very just reason to be very upset he was flat out taken out on purpose and attract that is very treacherous this is a weird race track and a lot of these places on this thing don't have softballs they've got weird makeshift walls here there and everywhere you know and get turned driver's side front first into the wall on purpose i understand why he was very upset i don't know if he fully understood what was going on at the time when he did it either either about alex bowen being under the weather what was going on so who knows if he was able to you digest all of that before he did that in the moment but i think looking back on it he wishes because he wouldn't have done that while he was getting medical attention but i definitely see where he was coming from on it all right let's head to victory lane now this guy missed turn one on a restart he starts crashes into the tyre barrier his day was done machine was completely mangled shay elliott somehow digs deep recovers covers to win let's hear from the driver can definitely take those six points with you as long as you're alive in this playoff system and hopefully we don't need them but you know we got them and and hopefully hopefully let's go to you the way so we have yeah i mean definitely at the time i thought we were we were done i could see you know they were showing it up on the big screen i could see the big screen down the back and i was looking at it and you know there's like well the hoods and not that bad i thought the splitter was knocked up and i felt like if that was going to be the case then we you're probably done from there and obviously just a really stupid mistake and i'm not sure that you could do something more stupid than than that so there ever is a notebook of things not to do that should be number one and that in that book chase elliott on his tire barrier celebration bernau route one a. awesome awesome display i yeah i was coming back on the front stretch and i saw that dang thing you know it was like well i couldn't pass this opportunity jouni to go down here and redeem myself a little bit and turn one so i was pretty excited about our i'm typically not very quick witted but i was i was really really proud out of that i was pretty fired up and it should have never been special in the first place since i went out of my way to make it special today i felt like i had to go back and see it one more time you see why he's the fan favourite he does stuff like that right there that was amazing i mean that takes wit right there does and man this this is the stuff that legends are made of what we saw here for chase elliott made a epoch mistake one of the most embarrassing things you can have happened as the leader of any kind of a race to blow oh the turn while looking like the guy who's the twenty just one stage two right before that in here he goes just straight up into the heartburn wall luckily he was because they're building up so much speed speed on that front stretch because they're coming from a different spot than they normally do in the race usually come through chicane yeah and so that is tricky but man nobody else had that problem i know they had it the year before but nobody else had that issue on the start and that really compounded things for chase i may look even more like a foolish move but he was able to get the car rolled up miraculously enough if we're didn't really damage it that badly sure buckled things up a little bit but the splitter was intact the front clip was basically intact had to beat down a little bit and this thing was obviously still very very fast when they get done with that and this is the thing that this is a statement win when you look back at somebody's career later on you'll get the highlight reel and stuff like really crappy wreck thing and still one that's incredible yeah totally here's his crew chief alan gustafsen break and he's gonna break it down on what he said fortunately you know it really wasn't much you seem like it pushed the hood down more than anything and kind of push the hood ironside at the top of the fenders and kind of pushed it back into the windshield saw the biggest thing that we really had to do is get that back sealed up and get it down having that vented isn't isn't the greatest thing in the world for the performance former car so yeah it was our biggest task and as long as a splitter was intact and in good condition no tire robes we were going to be in decent shape so that was the case we we got lucky on that i don't i don't know how we didn't have more substantial damage than that i think that went away and alan justice is going to break it down further he's gonna talk about chases bout with the tire barrier well he's just those restarts is tough the time your speed when they're out there running laps they exit exit that chicane pretty consistently and then you have the breaking marker setup so in that situation he was carrying a bit more speed than he had at the restart before or and i haven't gone back in analyze if you break the same spotter driven in a bit deeper but nevertheless he locked up the left front tyre and and unfortunately unfortunately couldn't get it back and just had to go straight and team on iraq now i thought if he could get back to the top ten it'd be great but the car was really fast and i thought it was hurt when it it went into that barrier and when he came out in the lap times were good and then we've got a couple of cautions that help us and he got back up to the front and call was really good and he made some unbelievable move so i'm just really proud three in the last five road courses he's one that's pretty sporty so we talked about burnout is his third win in the last five road course races i'd have to say he is safely in the road course ace column yet it's funny because going going into those last five road course races i don't think many had him pegged as a road ace buddy is now he definitely is and this is one of the season two of those have now come monroe courses as well the other being talladega i don't know how that bodes for him going forward in the playoffs because those are three kind of really weird things you're not going to see much more of in the playoffs and we have talladega coming up homer time but the majority what we have left or these mile and mile and a half tracks so it'll be interesting to see how that parlays for chase elliott there was a big wreck on a restart involved was eric jones owns eight and his car ends up in the garage ending his playoff bid also involve jimmy johnson denny hamlin and others that for him was a big honking bummer yeah that is that's a bummer when when you're in a must win situation you get a chance to even battle for the win because you're taking out by somebody else's mistake and that punctures you radiator and you're done for the day that's that's a real bummer fair jones jones but he'll come back strong next season how about ryan blaney you mention tire rubber issues but i think it was mid point of the race he's on pit road and they're pulling parts out from under the car and welding and oh my gosh yes that's what the problem was i thought it was a tire it was the track bar was broken wasn't it something was going on there something i saw like an elbow part that they they threw out and had to replace or something yeah that was pretty wild i can't believe especially when you factor that in now that he finished top ten that's incredible yeah especially when you realize that some males parked early because they had a broken track bar kyle busch blue left front tyre and a few laps from the finish decided to just give up and quit yes six laps from the finish there under red flag ugh he's got a broken track bar just like ryan blaney hadn't finished the top ten twit timmy hill also had it broken track bar and finished thirtieth on lead lap in this thing and he he brad keselowski drove with a wheel car with a shopping cart wheel fool race yeah so there's a lot of things here in a lot of people are you know on both sides in yeah it's not cool to quit and a lot of people are saying well it's team told him to go ahead and park it because it went down scarring further yeah i understand the team wants to park it but at some point near the near the big driver driver you're the guy that's trying to showcase what you've got for the fans even if your laps down i think he's still go hey now i wanna finish this thing out guys we're so close let's just finish it he's a quitter hooman i like how like testy you get with it it's he's a quitter denny hamlin got loose and that pretty much was the nail in the coffin for ryan newman because that thing just it got all mangled after that spin yeah yeah that's that's that's a bummer isn't so here are the eliminated drivers because that was an elimination race eric rick jones ryan newman eric merola and kurt busch so next up is a new round and that includes dover talladega and kansas so kansas is a pretty safe track to close things out but you've got dover or any kind of an accident takes everyone out because the whole track is blocking talladega as well which is known for the big one so this is going to be an exciting chatting around as well so there may be nobody left for kansas yeah good point there might not be up next is tyler rettig on t. f. l. w. like us at facebook dot com slash the final lap like us this excuse me on the phone with us today is tyler radic and let's keep bowling discussion going from outside you had a big event yesterday at the south point ah yeah brennan gone had these celebrity bowling classic and it was offer great cause is for for charities and i think they raised about sixty five thousand thousand dollars so well and above i think what brennan was shooting for is about twenty five so it all worked out really well for them and i was fun to be that help make a small part of it and take the whole thing as possible and successful was so it was fun you know there's something as simple as bullying you try and go in there and have fun but drivers competitive nature takes over and and i think that's when i started bowling really bad well how'd you do that terrible let's go the score is not even worth on the score not it wasn't over one hundred so that that bad but it's just part of it you know finance something i don't know a lot of i think and i think a lot of people that watch cassini racist and my background in truck racing so it's not really surprising to me that you know i can't very consistently in casually throw a called online without throwing it to ricky rachman from racing rocks we were just talking outside as well he was he was part of the event as well and he scored sub ninety uh eight hundred eighty three i think is what he said and that's what i said that was my score he he scored better than that but he didn't want to say what it was so my ten year old scores better than that i believe it i mean they don't get mad they probably just having fun and the bumpers but well the bumpers to help a little bit but so maybe if i had a bumper awhile to rush off of i would be really good the bullying pry ricocheted off the bumper into into the end of the pins pretty well all right the season you've just pretty much own the point standings what's the outlook for the playoffs we've we've been pretty good obviously christopher's right there he's within range sir statistically speaking from a number standpoint he could he could get us but we'd have to have a really bad bad racier for that to happen but is possible so it's something we gotta be somewhat cautious towards as much as you think about it would be just be really stupid on the first stage to to give away the regular season championship and then not even finish the race so it's five extra points we pretty much have in our pockets we just got to be smart and being out of the race and make i'm sure we will be able to collect those at the end of this event here in las vegas definitely now you've got four wins under your belt this season the other guys have a few more but does that weigh on are you at all or you guys are right there anyway you know i feel like the other drivers have had a couple racist taken away from them if you will but not as is i'm trying to use it excuse but we've we've been positioned win as many races as they have for sure this year we've just had not been able to capitalize many times two of them easily you could argue view this past weekend and then obviously way earlier in the year here at las vegas we were battling for the win on a late restart and just got got caught up in iraq so could very easily either of those racists or or you know we wouldn't have but we're we're in we're in a contention we're in spot to win and i think back to pocono early this year give it up on the last corner think back to atlanta run leader down with the handful apps go and catch cautioned the wrong time so you know i feel like we've all been in contention when as many races as is is is possible as one another i should say but they've just been able to close out those races if you more time we have a lot of that is just i it just depends some of it's luck some of it's just the way the race goes and i'm just you know and unfortunately it's just to not recognise car at the end of it so all right christopher dell made sure that neither of you last week i wouldn't say it was intended that way but you know we're we both understood based on how the last i restart went i was thinking i was gonna be out of racism and side by side and it turned three and he was able to get me aero tight on my left rear which is not normal usually for for those cars so i just got off guard he's able to clear me and i realized if i let him get back headed megan's material hard to pass them and i think he realized the same thing on that restart so it was just one of those deals we weren't gonna left because if whoever lifted was not going to be the leader in they weren't gonna win the race so we understood that and you know we're battling each other for that points championship the regular season points championship so it's unfortunate we both wrecked each other but we both knew that hey we win over the other here today it's going to be it's going to be helpful going into slash race for our odds to win their agencies jammie but it's also five more bonus points what what some of the tracks in the playoff schedule that you're excited to visit what is that noise ace someone really heavy is above us sorry i couldn't even think when you're asking that question some of attracts you're excited to go to here in the playoffs i'm sorry i was just so distracting obviously there's a lot of really interesting tracks that can just have so many different different things play out through the course of the race in the first round with richmond dover and the royal richmond rebel than dover i should say in that order richmond's when a place historically quickly for me as a driver haven't been great at but this team brought a really good car the last time we were off a little bit compared to chris rebel custer and maybe one or two others we've been working really hard on our our short-track program and we made big gains over the summer second time going back to iowa and i think it's something that we'll be able to carry into richmond and have the same in kind of speed so excited for that race dover is the role is a little bit of a wild card you can recommend in different ways around that racetrack get wrecked million different ways so just got to be smart to that race we have a really good point cushion i would feel like when this is going to reset we're going to be up a some forty points or so on a lot of these guys so if we're smart you know we should be able to outrun them on a consistent basis we just don't wanna wanna get caught up in a wreck early on in the race and there's a lot of points a couple more questions for tyler rettig i can't help but notice you got a star trek logo there on your phone excited to the the new picard show coming out i am i haven't knocking alive and done a great job of keeping up with when it's coming but i heard and saw a really good that's off time for me so i'm excited for it i i not really sure what to expect i think it's you know post captain life in a way i kind of i was reading but you know patrick stewart's great actor i loved his role in the next generation and in the star trek movies so excited to see what comes out of it i really enjoy you know star trek discovery on CBS it's been been entertaining so just really cool to see a continuation of you know the series and away whether it's you know someone else imagination or whatever so it's just cool to see star trek on the small screen definitely you're going to be a new father yeah absolutely that's that's going to via a new process for sure i don't know what to expect obviously first time doing it so just open mind and a lot of coffee and not allowed to sleep and i should i'd be fine that's about right i've got two of them and you're in for a wild ride it's fun though it's well worth it at every every person's you know share that with me it's worth every sacrifice you make and totally changes your life so i'm excited for it it's going to be a process all right good luck throughout the playoffs this weekend and beyond fatherhood does thanks for being on the final lap thank you very much like said facebook dot com slash final lap the final lap weekly he is back here's your host kerry murphy toby christie just a couple of guys talking rayson cfl ws on my name's kerry murphy mo longtime longtime nascar media member and syndicated radio host of all things a final app are co host for the show toby christie nascar editor from the final lap dot com and social media director from all things at the final ap his own website website is of course toby christie dot com i'd like to hear it again one more time what was i well you're right sweetest words i ever ever hear i love hearing that now expect next time i'm right about something that i get the same treatment from you on the show probably not probably probably not newsworthy we cue the music so it was kind of assume that wants daniel hammered was released from our cr or cr racing racing here tyler radic would take over the ride well indeed that is the case look for tyler behind the wheel the number eight machine rettig is the defending xfinity series champion and of course the thick of this year's championship hunt with five wins so far this season i think that's a good pick yeah and so the team now's the caterpillar we'll be back for the for the season on the number eight car other partners will be announced later date but definitely he'll have solid sponsorship funding and in the two the cup series races ran this season one of those in the top ten at kansas so definitely some big time expectations for tolerated going into next season's rookie rickie campaign kind of bummer for him i thought he had done pretty decent job for a rookie in the cup series who hadn't won any other level going into the cup series right i really wish they gave him one more year but again i don't want to lose a guy like tolerated especially since he was a guest on our program just mere moments ago yeah i mean i mean if you get the the leave the choice of either tired or anyone else at this point many guys on the list are going to outweigh rettig as far as possible blue chip talented going mm forward so they've got to pull the trigger and what they've got to pull the trigger on it's just a real bummer for hammer good pick for RC racing racing love uh-huh tell me about the amazing busch beer car okay so yeah this was bush beer announced with a video on twitter this week that they were i'm not going to have their logo on the car this weekend for kevin harvick weird just unorthodox strategy for marketing as far as that goes instead all all the spots in the car where would say bush beer and on the cam where would say bush beer and stuff they're gonna have the word harvick on it so they replacing the word bush with harvick because harvard ecorse horse races against two guys in the cup series with last name bush so bush's tired of given those guys free marketing each and every weekend and they're going to market their guy for the weekend they're just figuring this out now yeah so and they're tweeted said quote turns out we're not the only ones named bush so we're taking a break from giving those other guys free advertising and giving eh kevin harvick the spotlight look for the harvard car this week at dover so this is interesting because they've had some really weird paint schemes this year anyway they're not afraid to be crazy when it comes the marketing side they had the the weird pink money on car they had that crazy like early nineties looking next car they've had flannel they've had bright orange they've had all sorts of stuff on this thing throughout the season so busch beer is definitely not afraid to mix it up as far as the marketing side of things goes wait so it's going to look like a giant hot wheels right so all those ones that you would always have like blue deuce on the side or earnhardt jr. or sterling marlin right yep basically what it is i guess the kids are going to be like oh i know that car now so that's actually a pretty good strategy honestly if you're already selling die-cast like that for kids for this exact car that'd be pretty cool i guess i guess so that's one of the stranger marketing things i've seen in sport and i've seen a lot i've seen about four of the strangest things i've seen from a marketing point in the sport art this year from that same sponsor so it's it's been interesting to watch so are we this is the round of twelve or is this the round of a with twelve drivers i so this is around twelve because there are twelve drivers vying for eight spots around too i wish they would just go round one round two round three and then yeah yeah that makes more sense if i'm confused with others maybe as well yeah i mean you're pretty high on the the IQ spectrum so well thank you i know l. but thank you yes not not very high up on the humble spectrum though the i don't know what that is twelve drivers that are still competing after the four that that were eliminated are clint boyer william byron ryan blaney alex bowman kyle larson brad kazlauskiene and toby has the honor of the top six that means they get the the premier guys here how about chase elliott this past weekend's winner and number six kevin harvick joy lugano denny hamlin number three martin troops junior sits in the runner up spot and of curse the quitter is your point leader going into the round of twelve calabash total quitter i you know it bothers me because when i got into the sport you had some rough and tumble kind of guys that were running in this thing so i remember seeing dale earnhardt flipped at daytona ninety seven get back in the car and finished the race he knew you weren't gonna win that thing but it's just a point of pride to finish the thing it you just finished the dang race it didn't matter where you finish that point you just impress everyone it motivates your team to go well dan that guy he wants to get out there and finish this thing well let's let's step it up and give some better cars ricky rudd drove with an eye popping out is is taped in so we've seen some pretty incredible things over the years that drivers are willing to do and parking at six six laps early because you three laps down is not something i i would go you know that's pretty impressive now there's nothing impressive about it actually definitely not way to go but it's okay it's okay we're we're going to dover this weekend it's it's kinda like bristol only double the size yeah it's like so bristol yeah like there and it's all spongy and stuff you had water and it turns into dover for and that's what they're trophy looks like yeah definitely which by the way is the coolest trophy in all of nascar hands down i mean you like it a lot i like the grandfather clock man we shall have words i just wanted to mess with you grandfather clock is kindling in my book you know one once upon a time we did a one one off podcast of a racing legend about the clock right it was more painful i know i wrote the whole thing based on the fact that yeah i knew you would just be cringing mill time you're talking about it yeah thanks a lot fans for making that podcast successful yeah that didn't work out but hey we we tried what we did and and you know we quit just like we did you parked six laps early that's right so it's called the miles the monster monster mile whatever self cleaning in concrete high banked oval truly is so if you get into iraq you're going to wreck others oh definitely for sure straightaways are lined by wall so when that wreck does break out you don't have any room if your driver no you're just gonna keep piling in and these are some hard accidents that happen at dover as well it's not one of those things where you know you bounce into into something maybe scraped somebody into walt now you're t-bone somebody every time because they're just careening across the track there's no way to stop it so it's pretty hellacious impacts at dover i oh i think joey logano blue i believe it was driving the kotei and tumbled like eighty seven times it was pretty close i don't think it was eighty seven but pretty close to eighty seven that is check it out on youtube i'm sure it's on there that wreck was was spectacular in a bad way yeah and also there have been a couple guys have been really badly injured during entire testing at this place when a tire would pop and they'd slam into the wall back before the softballs were installed because man that angle that you would take in there and just the speed you're carrying at this place because his high banked it's a one mile track i remember greg baffled slammed into the wall really hard and joe nemechek i think broke part of his shoulder or something that one time it's a it's a tough place man totally race number thirty of thirty six on the season race number two no in the playoff round number two race number one round twelve to raise one i do know it's a one mile oval and the banking is huge at twenty four degrees front and back stretches both nine degrees and check this out front and back stretches are both equidistant at one thousand seventy six feet whoa man whoa whoa i'm sure there's some fan out there with a laser measuring things right now it's not actually equidistant and this is why nobody listens this is this show anymore yes they do not we got a new patron this week i know we did this is awesome man we have some great listeners i'm just trying to poke fun at you because you're just funny any stage one is one hundred twenty laps stage two will just double that at another one twenty in the final stage coming in at one sixty four the scheduled checkered flag taking home the coveted coolest trophy nascar miles the monster yeah that's the trophy that broke jeff burton's wife's ribs wants has not playing around so of course four laps four hundred miles last year's winner of this race whoa pass weekends winter chase elliott early this year's winner dover was is martin church junior kind of one of his eighty five hometown tracks and he won a couple races a few weeks back so those are the two guys in the mix again they'll probably be right there at it i i would think so they are they're they're catching fire at the right time right surround to order around twelve or whatever you wanna call it of the playoffs from dover starting sunday at two thirty pm eastern time on being being being NBC the big network yeah it's been an upgrade because i had to take off the s. n. part from last last year copy and paste what a bummer that you have to actually do something when you're copying pasting a couple of delete buttons and man i could have lifted a finger or something well you just don't know drivers doing dandy add dover your top five addition oh boy right we begin with kyle busch three wins twelve top fives eighteen top ten poll average finish of a quitters fourteen point five marcher junior he like we said this is one of his seventy five hometown tracks three wins six top fives fifteen top ten three polls average averaged twelve point five five six other hometown tracks include charlotte california speedway i think i believe his his kansas what else martinsville hometown track because they don't have one of his actual home state we just call them his hometown contract denny hamlin has four top fives eleven top tens three polls average finish of seventeen point five how about joey logano the guy who went tumbling at this track thirty seven thousand times k- murphy eighty-seven but okay his four top fives no no wins really evidently not okay twelve the top tens and average finished with thirteen point two that's not a bad average finish kevin harvick rounds out the top five with a couple of wins at dover seven top fives eighteen top tens a pole and an average finish asia thirteen point two who though that does it for drivers do dandy that's awesome let's move on no no no we got our bonus driver for this week oh okay alter who it is we always like to have a bonus driver because you know the top five is pretty much the same every every week during the playoffs so our bones driver this week is the driver then number number forty eight hendrick motorsports chevrolet jimmy johnson okay i mean i can see that he's got a pretty good career over ulterior well he's only got eleven wins that's it yeah just a measly seventeen seventeen top fives and a paltry twenty four top tens and three poles and didn't he have a lug nut break like a brake line or something and put them out a championship on your that sounds about right okay sh wanna check but that's our unique bonus driver of drivers doing dandy at dover well you know i would usually give you a hard time i am about this but jimmy johnson was a very deserving driver this week so i actually have faith going forward each week you'll have a different driver that is actually supposed to be on this list i think he was the bonus driver last week i'm while i'm sure he probably deserved it then too i'm sure he did definitely but there might be a trend developing i'm sure there probably is what's after we got talladega after that so nigga superspeedway blah ah glad we worked at in up next we've got chris butcher the final ap weekly dot com final weekly getting you ready for this weekend's race my name's kerry murphy his name is toby christie and mccall's entire program the final weekly heading into the dover weekend it's time now how four drivers and we heard the news last week but it's still shocking chris butcher you're what did we hear last week i don't remember maybe i think it came after the show maybe right well at any rate this is still shocking news i mean it came out of nowhere are you didn't even know about it bush going to the seventeen routes fenway racing this is awesome here he is talking about being back with them absorbs signed up ten years ago to to go into that driver development program with with jack everybody at roush fenway racing and for me that that was a a huge moment for myself really gada guy going into in stock car racing had six late model races before that in stock courts other than that basically fresh chat elections car so that was a big moment and then with the with everyone's help and david reagan's help at the time was able to go and win a bunch of races when championship and work my way up through the company and and be able to be there for a long period of time for this opportunity to come up now able to come back over seventeen number through our entire arca seasons alba but the last four races there so that's kind of a neat deal was definitely kids fan growing up you know it was nice to be able to have him be somewhat of a mentor for short period of time while while i was over there so that's that's really neat and i think performance wise you've seen there was asian really step up over the past couple years now as you know i've been able to get invaluable see time at front row motorsports and and ajay tidgy dorothy racing so you know oh i think we've had some small sees i've learned a ton and i'm ready to come back and try and pick up where where program is in trying to help elevate it and chris butcher chris pleased pleased as punch with how rats fenway racing is progressing there's so many combinations of things have to be put in place the correct way to be able to get the results alt-right and so i think when you look at your ization at that point seen it starting to trend in the right direction over the past couple of years now with help help from drivers such as ryan or matt kenseth people that have a ton of laps in these big heavy race cars that that really have the experience for me hard to compete with from that side of things things but i think i've been able to to be around enough and wearing a lot to be honest driving different race courses has helped as well through through the couple years to to feel differences try and find things that that you like as a drivers things that you don't like it and things that may not necessarily drive good but but can equal speed and can definitely bring better finishes there's things along the way that that you find that are are able to help program and finish better and so you know just what the different packages that we've had over the last couple of years been able to drive a bunch of different packages that also you just basically builds up your notebook and build up you know what your knowledge level is of cars and what you're looking for as everything adapts with it having that and having these several years in this series now to be able to to lean on that gives me to come over and build up why that and try and help you know add to the conversation and then you know also just from being able oh to to run consistently will and elvira game and be able to close races out so there you go chris butcher in the seventeen car which means ricky stenhouse junior out of the seventeen car and by the way chris i guess had something his contract still with with row fenway that they were able to pull him away from j. t. g. already racing thing my hope going forward now you're ready for this awesome like just weird thing that could happen right stenhouse lands at j. t. g. already racing to oh lordy and he actually actually turns into a super clean driver and has seventeenth street top twenty finishes with no problems and yet chris butcher makes mistakes throughout the year and at the end of the year row swaps back again okay but i thought we were fans of chris but we are but this'll be funny if this is just a recycling thing each and every year they just keep swapping from house to butcher stenhouse the butcher that it doesn't seem like that would be good for anybody that'd be funny guess funny sure maybe okay i i think he's going to do well at the seventeen no i agree i just think that would be i was trying to make you laugh man come on jesus that wasn't funny though that that hurt chris bush's bush's wishers feelings about that i feel bad about that ricky stenhouse sure sucks you don't care about his feelings wow i wonder where he's going to land i mean you mentioned JT gee that might be the only place left you've also got front row has the thirty eight car available salable with david ragan retiring and they have a little bit still with route so that could be a place where they kind of put him there and hope that maybe blossoms into something else if they were to pop out to a third team later on this it sounds like the things that rashed with saying after the the the swap here it really seemed like he doesn't want to do anything else with the stenhouse experiment going forward checkered flag is flying on this show this has been the final ap weekly catches next week right here when we will recap the racing at dover the monster mile coolest trophy and nascar and preview the biggest baddest track in all the land sea way

watching so yeah let's go straight to the U. and then probably the garage but you look at racetrack before they make it to turn a flight under David Ragan and go to school for Kyle Larson why one row further rack Joey Logano started the point to run our down through right now but they got to win this is for all the marvels at chase playoffs light here he comes back into three he's Sunday in Nascar Live Race Day head of the Cup series race you may have heard of conversation between Monster Energy Nascar Cup series star Chase Elliott and our very own Kim Kun they talked it Saturday at eight thirty and eleven thirty am on Math TV live at noon on Wings Nation Dot Com and facebook live join us for in-depth conversations with drivers took the one I'm excited about going to you noted that there has been a lack of consistency at Martinsville but to me it seems like you're finally getting a handle at the Racetrack Salak he's been a struggle so I wouldn't feel the greatest about going there but and we've had good runs at Martinsville we've had bad runs there and do you think is maybe your best track of the three I don't know I feel like Martinsville Phoenix had been hit or miss for US Texas has been mainly miss we go back there the next spring and do the same thing and we struggle and then we go back there this past spring and we want we run really good and I was I'm not doing it car talk covering dirt tracks all across America rn's classic racist goes around watches Lombardi about the intensity of the play offs football Halloween and a whole lot more here's the extended version of that inter looking into the next round how but only by three stay with your will get you better or with big reports that to stay with it you got to give it a little bit better do you have a sense of maybe a little bit more knowledge going into the race knowing what you need from car in which you need to do on-track every time I get excited about one of Martinsville struggle and anything different so I it's hard because I you go back to those places and you think you're doing the same thing you're approaches or my approach is the same you have it hasn't been a lot of consistency so I think either one of those were Phoenix could go either way for I don't really know that there's one I have circled that would be a one I'm excited about but I would say the way to go great job on the screen were also car on out and Vegas and not to knock that they were really good to us out there but I think Nashville will be better suited for us and and closer to closer to everyone which we'll have to throw in purple around to the right side of that car and look good on the right side here they are love sex fuel pumps in another fuel left side tires back on the legendary races simply what happened I just hope he chokes on that two hundred thousand that's all I it's classic races available on Moran Dot Com I tunes and doc celebratory year end banquet so good place for it and it's a lot closer than vegas he'll probably end up making me go but no I haven't really had any account something favourite costumes when you're younger so I like to think Texas probably would be our worst track of the three I think if we hit things right I felt like we could probably run good at Martinsville and thinks I know so they got done we got him and I was GonNa wear them in Talladega and they didn't make it so I didn't mixed bag of finishes so I would like to think so I feel like I've learned I put a lot effort in China be better but I haven't found that consistency of happening all the time which is great nobody wants to travel to Vegas three times a year so maybe somebody does I don't think I do but nonetheless it's been it's been and we had a great run there too falls ago Felt like we had a great car car certainly capable of winning a cup season in celebrations in Nashville this year for the first time you're big country music I would he must looking forward to just the environment I mean I'm not sure you can have a better environment for for easy going nothing on the on the hot scale it's Boyer flicking may off you know obviously we do a lot of traveling so looking forward to that and I'm sure it'll be a great party forever wins Halloween's coming up in a couple of weeks have you thought about a costume I have not win at Kansas speedway the team had a lightning-fast

Martinsville has had no absence of drama Nascar today middays cow Ricky is here to explain and then having to you know drink a gallon of water cooled back also maybe one day I'll get brave enough try what's your wing of choice when you go to stu smoked wings regular really we continue on this meets Nascar live so glad you're spending your time with us here on the motor racing network you know there's only four races remaining in the Monster Energy Nascar kind of all worked out I guess the aggressive racing at Martinsville is just part of the Game Says Ryan Blaney Yeah You're going to be more aggressive towards the end of races no matter what it is whether want to be that guy you know be wrapping the brave stuff and then be out so I took it on the Chin like everybody else and and always makes are the Connecticut native was standing in Victory Lane at homestead as the twenty eight team champion Joey Logano in tenth full-time season in the Cup series if he didn't do what he did would have made it to homestead we won't we won't ever know but obviously it can take those situations sometimes that you can move a guy last week's winner at Kansas Denny Hamlin is a five time winner in Martinsville and says that paper clip always delivers drama Martinsville's always put on look Gano gets the win man that got physical coming off turn number four they got together it through x nearly went sideways you know it sucks away or piledriver guy out of the way in order to make your way into the final four and then you get to homestead and everybody races fine so more plan a trip to the Nascar Hall of fame in Charlotte Tickets at Nascar Hall Dot Com Nascar this is our sport this is our house one of the first tracks you can go to lock yourself in to homestead which makes it even more important it seems like that round in particular of the plane got to win so what did Kyle Busch think of the move by Lugano I wouldn't say it was joey last ditch effort but it was certainly One of those kind of moments that great the third time in his career pioneering champion at the right place at the right time the kid who took on the good ole boys and Change Nascar we started go the Monster Energy Nascar Cup series playoff field has been whittled down to eight has Martinsville takes center stage this weekend the past else the intensity always ratchets up and anytime you go to a short track with that intense with the the stakes as large as they are you're gonna see tangled on the final lap at the paper clip got down to the end side they touch drew exco sideways Llegado gets by here Cups Denny Hamlin he'll get second tothe Myrna Heart Wren- presents a ten part podcast series that Traces Jeff Gordon's rise to Nascar Legend Jeff Gordon colorful career of the Rainbow Warrior here and maybe at some point though you're gotTa Change Your Team There's another fun fan question rob ones can you handle the nine one one wings at hooters Theon for whoever either you're a fan of what team you work for so that it just kind of you know no one's ever going to agree on something there are always going to be mixed opinions and that's the way it is some of the best racing th that we've seen especially the chase race or the playoff race there it's it's an intense one it's really but that's the way it goes and I can promise you I will forget what he did unlike Hamlin's move the year prior Lugano's paid off big time as three weeks later play the bumper to somebody you race aggressively that can I think applies at any racetrack and just comes into play at Martinsville 'cause you're so close together and it's a heavy break and tracks so yeah you it gets the greg off turnover to chase Elliott to the lead Pam on second Kyle O'Reilly Expands Betty upside retaining wall I and and wrecked and turn three leading the race so I don't know what I don't know what his problem was had an opportunity to go straight and homestead and and because of him we don't hey it's we're we're trying to make it do that lap one hundred move someone out of the way that hard but at the end of the race you gotTa do which I do to win the race so I said opinions change and whoever ORG BROKAW DOT COM hey guys it's done well he's Tall Brunette or the co host of the rip the fence podcast if you like traditional non wing dirt tracks on a petty Hamlin look like a good one yeah pod PAS and cook on down here forgetting Helen pitstop on left two hundred eighteen on the road in the air and it's always entertaining the motor racing network will have all the coverage of this weekend's events from the Martinsville speedway starting with the Nascar Gander outdoors truck series excitement like you've seen there over the past few years for sure short-track Racing Ken get physical and feelings are certainly going to get hurt but one thing is for certain assist in October breast cancer awareness is ever apparent will discuss plus some Monster Energy Nascar Cup series stars on their greatest and worst halloween Sunday you can hear them both on many of these same stations thank you kyle you heard Denny Hamlin in that piece describing the excitement of racing at Martinsville he extorted for Joe Gibbs racing and Denny Hamlin headed to Martinsville this weekend thank you postman coming up and ask our industry has always done an incredible job bringing is on some great into rounds which it looks like we're going to do here that that Martin so the first race of the third round with any Hamlin we've been building this race card been that level of importance well Martinsville's a very technical pit road so anytime there's there's that much to hitting everything optimum for a driver there is room for error all over again so it really taxes a lot of areas of the program requires a very unique racecar to build and we enjoy doing it and with any Hannibal Hamlin driving we look forward to one of the things historically deal with brake issues and then we don't deal with them the break technology changes and then of course we have the heating issues where are we going into next week here at margin he's had an incredible year this year due in part by his relationship with his new crew chief Chris gave heart St Paul had a chance to catch up with Chris over the weekend too we talk about Martinsville what types of things are you conscious of as you build a race car and prepare for this weekend Martinsville's definitely very unique and it's it's often as you've seen before but you have to try to get it all because track position so important so it's it's definitely one of the more difficult pit roads that you see on the slow down quite a bit even at Martinsville so it was quite a bit adjusting for the drivers last time we were there actually changing their breaking points and how how deep they could drive in and how hard the things you look for the car slowed down a whole lot senator corner gets a really low amount RPM very flat corner then you accelerate rapidly off the corner and heavy breaking the other side bill is pit road and that puts a premium on qualifying and everything else just how important it's important everywhere I get it we talk about every week but where's Martinsville stack up eighty America it's the mother you've all been waiting for that's right outback delivery is here now you can enjoy lawyer first pit box of

"It's the first short track race of the boy offs there's nothing like short racing displays of electric take the throttle you gotta be driver this is one of those traits issues happening taken to fast exit or the lead more trucks junior takes it away brian jez laos game or church junior span turn order spoke for tricks junior colleges passing for the lead it took back trump junior aw that's went down on saturday night welcome in nascar america's people talk AJ harman danger dale jarrett another playoff race another win by hi martin tricks junior i'm not sure what to say other than it was impressive what the race short-track ratings and we had everything but in the end you called it i listened to you the pre race and you said gibbs gibbs gibbs and gibbs sure you had to order exactly right but you have the team didn't have that but and me and about a hundred other racing night but ah they were impressive i'll have to say that bratkowski surprise me that that he could stay up there and lead much did but at once they got the pirates of the joe gibbs cars were just the best and those drivers did a good job and you have to give it to martin ex junior and cold burn it you know they did it when they were route west they came back east and everybody thought well they're going to give up all their secrets but i think they kept a little something ready for the playoffs there to for to the open-wheel guy the spin and win god you've seen this before davies in any five hundred margetts junior richmond would you think about the spin win out of true eggs well i mean it just it shows that he's fortunate to not hid anything or or get hit by somebody else besides stenhouse junior there but just shows how much confidence they have in this year they went in stages it's like they didn't win for a while when when mark shirt junior colpaert went over there to joe gibbs racing and then it's like they got hot then it's like right before the playoffs down a little bit weren't terrible but it's almost like the hill something in their back pocket and said okay it's time to see jimmy johnson and chad canals do that all the time meal and it seems like colpaert and march junior in that whole nine hundred nineteen have went out there and said all right we're putting the best of everything that we have in these race cars every weekend and right now it's scary for the rest of the competition especially his teammates because i saw bush after that race that interview that you guys did and i mean not that cowboys ever happy finish running second it was not more of an unhappy was more confused look like how we're going to beat these guys added that just exactly yeah and it's you know you've got a pretty good car and a really good car and everything's going well when you spin out and you only lose that's pretty good and your teammates major run and get back but they they did they did everything right and so far so good and we're really registered with me is and i think we haven't had time we haven't been deep enough of the playoffs to discuss this yet but those playoff points that can be earned the regular season can also be earned in the playoffs so these two wins for tricks is filling that bucket so why we know it guarantees him a spot in the round of twelve well the other thing he does that makes the round of twelve a little easier makes around eight a little easier guaranteeing about either of those rounds but these wins do have a lasting effect pass this first round that's really what i took about from richmond is they won a week ago and they're through there in so you question are they going to start looking ahead working on equipment for the next round what i saw is that it's like you just said they're out for blood they know that momentum's real you said it there have been a little streaky all year long and i do believe listen it was beat by jimmy johnson most of my career in the same equipment that i had to race within it stinks you know if if dale jarrett beat us back when we raised against him we'll maybe the ford had a little more power maybe maybe they had a little better setup when your team beat you know what they have so i do think denny hamlin kyle busch they're going to have to take that into consideration you take the points aside which is a great great thing to have healed that up and you're just really giving yourself will groom every time you go into the next stage but it's all about confidence your own confidence is and hurting everybody else's confidence around you and that was just the biggest thing i saw that look like how bush space like when asked k where was he better or what it was really have an answer and didn't know and it's like okay well they're going to the roble i mean marcher okay at the road course that's what we saw last year bad at the role believe we could see three in a row so they're just spot on right now when you go to the next round where there's the racetrack in there called talladega you want all the wiggle room possible because you never know what can happen there and it just he has no weakness cole has no weakness that nine thousand nine hundred so any type of racetrack correct they go to their strong dibs really dominated but it wasn't great for all the ribs drivers while jones had a good run if you look at the last march junior in your two wins and he's in kevin harvick accomplish are also in yellow even without a win in the playoffs because they have enough points there through the role doesn't mathematically matter for them you look brad danny everybody had the guy on the bottom right air jones where should we even start right detainment to richmond twenty six points behind after las vegas i said he had to win dan he gets in the media says no i do i can make it up points i was wrong he was right he ran well gained enough points but then after the race we find out from nascar he had a problem in post raced inspection here's what the director j had to say yes or the twenty standard procedure post race in the playoffs offset we run every core through the o. s. s. and then we do a post race inspection on for second then generally a random other twenty car failed though s on their run through on a standard post race inspection we've set the standard early in the year and what we expect and teams have done a good job reacting to that i think obviously as the pressure mounts in the years ago the the season goes on it it doesn't surprise me to see them pushing a little farther and trying to get a little more out of their stuff and like i say sometimes you just cross that line a little bit and that's all you need to to fail so i appreciate j. fabian director the cup series coming out explain a couple of things in there to clean up so the american says the that's basically just the screening station measures the body of the wheel that location location the tow the camera all kinds of stuff the simple fact is they failed it what the fans need to know is before the race there's one set of tolerance after they open up they know stuff is going to shift wbt obviously this has shifted too much other footnote all sixteen playoff guys with through it i think that's worth the fans to hear the other he wasn't just picked right within just pick on one of the gibbs gibbs cars sixteen went through fifteen pass one failed DJ the simple fact is forty two points down at cost there had a great night did everything got stage points in both the first two stages ran really really well you didn't have the the takeoff speed did his teammates had but man what's he got fifteen twenty laps on these tires that car was just steady the all night i saw him make some really good passes through the night and did everything that you wanna do here's the unfortunate side so we're talking about eric jones everything goes okay he's disqualified he gets last place position and he did nothing wrong there's a driver but that's what is out there you you you work as a team you win as a team and NFL as a team when these things happen and i think as a driver age always appreciated my crew and my crew chief pushing the limit as much as we possibly could but it still hurts so so much when is your name that's out there whenever things don't go right but this is the way nascar set it up this year if you fail then you're going to the back and and unfortunately originally called jerry jones must-win situation now unfortunately i i know what that feels like a couple of times yeah just a couple of times this year i know what that feels like and you're right it because driver you just feel like okay i felt like i did everything and it has nothing to do with me but your name it gets dragged through the papers social media to a certain degree like oh you know that's why he's running my you know he's cheating on no it's but you win in in loses race team just the same difference eric jones battling for the win at bristol matt di benedetto gets around him he gets into the wall he made the mistake so you have to win and loses uses a race team as long as everybody in that organization has each other's backs then you have to accept what happens the way you do that is you spin it positive going to the wroval points don't matter now we can't raise his way in on points so there's one way he's going to make it to the next round and go win the race that's all they have to focus on they don't don't have to worry about where william barnes run and we're arrogant miro is running we're alex bowman's run and they have to go out there focus on themselves and take whatever whether it strategy trying to stay up front do something different if you don't have the fastest car and we've seen over the last couple of years air jones has become a better road course driver is he going to be the favourite going to the royal definitely not but he's got a fast race car with a great organization and he's good enough that if they get a front he can go win that race yeah selfishly when i was listening to this going back to the hotel the other night they kind of uncovering on on nascar radio channel on sirius and so i was hearing hearing everything and selfishly i was like oh man because looking at that the points down through there with kirk bush was going to be the first one out i think at fourteen point points there and but yet so we're going to have eight drivers that we're going to be battling for these positions and that was just going to be so fun for y'all to cover us to watch throughout that race it's still going to be very intriguing because we're just talking about one driver and it takes out but it opens him up to you know hey whatever possibilities are there every every road racing skill that you have it's fun for you to call when you restart third with two to go skinny nicole yeah i feel bad for the front row because the air jones you wouldn't make turn one one you know what really bothers me or not doesn't bother me makes me feel bad for jones isn't as much the penalty is remember it was a mechanical issue vegas too so yeah gets in the playoffs and then has the two issues as the crew chief i'm just gutted right and that that i haven't given my driver the opportunity to show the world as best i always thought my job as a crew chief was is to deliver a product to my race car driver this about the drivers it should be those stars by jarvis give those stars a chance to perform maybe air jones can have one of the biggest walk-offs we've ever seen him think it would it the rover right here after two disappointing weeks it would be big talk bad night for eric jones on the flip side okay i was wrong i had the six six of ryan newman not having a chance in the playoffs and you talk about holding something back i'm not sure what roush fenway held back but DJ they showed up at practice in vegas not quite as good in the race i thought they we're going to be tenth solid become a richmond i expect him to run outside the top ten he runs inside the top ten most of the night scores stage points suspend the achilles heel of this team and now is plus fourteen canin a six car moved through it's absolutely they can they have the driver to get it done first first and foremost but the biggest thing is the speed that you're talking about i've been given ryan newman all of this credit and i think he deserved that in the regular season because he wheeled his way through that with his driving the ability he has in the latter stages of a race to get every position that he possibly can i'll give rows fenway some credit here now the last two weeks they have brought him some race cars that he could compete with literally i mean he was at one point trying to drive into second spot i think it was it was true extra cow al bush name is trying to pass for that second spot but he was right there trying to get that he ran in the top five most of the night very impressive and i think now there's nobody better at knowing the situation and knowing what they have to do i believe ryan newman finds his way into that round of toil save to say he was trying to pass gibbs car because they're so the question really now remains when i looked at the playoffs i kind of looked about organization gibbs you're gonna assume they're down to three if you take care of jones out team penske the two has been pretty good the twenty twos about a little off not sure about the twelve but brian newman his out run all of the hendrick cars pre consistently chase elliott perhaps the outlier he i think can outrun the six but when i look at this right here kim william byron or alex bowman going out run ryan newman i've yet to see anything that would i would have to say a guaranteed yes us the thing i will say about is the role is unlike anything else that we go to there's no race you can't say it's like sonoma's you can't say it like it's like walking glenn it is a street course that has baking in it once you get up on one and two and two three and four so the role will you can't compare it you can't look back you can't even look back at last year because the packages so different and now the chicanes different as well so it's ryan newman he's he's solid at everything he does road course racing is probably not especially although we've seen when his cars are right he can run up front in those two when it comes to william byron alex bowman the road coursed coursed they've been pretty quick at this year it's been really good so maybe being i'm with you i'm gonna keep saying no yeah for sure they have faster cars are going to be but ryan newman keeps going out there and to your point EJ now credit goes to route straightaway because they've actually given him good enough cars that he can take having a wheels way to fifteenth ain't now he drives inside the top ten top five so i'm not i'm not betting against him ryan newman is forced the other wants to beat him yep yeah i don't see ryan newman go out there and make a mistake right it might not be be all sunshine in the in the top five but it's gonna be back into the top ten front in the top twenty he's gonna force those other drivers chris to find those fourteen points but guys coming up on saturday nights race at richmond features some of the non-playoff drivers mixing it up with those still racing for chairmanship will those tensions continue to rise between groups as the playoffs continue and we just discussed it we'll get host race reaction title contenders as a playoffs heads to the first car race why aww let's go to the role shinde exciting and we will hear from newly crowned indycar champ joseph new gardner claimed his second title in three years for team penske the satan pick up the hitoshi chevrolet of joseph new gotten auden champion at twenty seventeen joseph taylor he's done everything he needed to do and chumps across the line with a twenty five point buffer man it was it was i was so pissed earlier i thought we were throwing it away but you know we're trying to think of the team there obviously we're trying to divide conquer and they just they just did such a great job this group all year long and i didn't want to throw it away at the end do something silly but what they call the great race and i tried to be as smart as i could today i'm just so proud of everybody you know t- chevy's great job on any any five hundred obviously misalignment which has been fantastic and then win the championships as much as you could ask for in the year so and just so thankful to the team and we just had such a great group you know everybody not is on the two car but our entire team is amazing what they do so thank you touchy they signed on for a new multi year deal so it's this is big for us man we gotta try and do more but so happy i was crying and so i'm i'm glad it's over i'm so glad this is over your fiance ashley's right here your mom tina's well take a moment for the newborn in family yeah you told me about that you said it's been a draining year and at times you took on too much this year what was this year so stressful for us it's been a it's been a lot this year but they had the best people around me just taking care of everything so i couldn't ask for more than what i have an amazing to be able to win races and driver this team admits that was a kid so you just really thankful man for for every everything for me so in a sport filled with engineering and speed crunching the numbers it's wonderful to see the raw emotion of what a change means to anyone and this this is the second the handful of years for joseph new garden delivering at the team team penske how emotional it was a big day a great day but i think you also heard the pressure was anything but walk in the park for new garden and that's the biggest thing you you say there's emotion because joseph newborn he so buttoned up he's articulate he he's polished everything that he does he he would not shock me when he's done racing if he just wants to become an actor i mean that's that charisma that he has on camera he so smooth with it so when you see that roy motion come out of will it shows how much the championship means to them in a certain way i don't wanna say shocking but it's a second championship he won his first championship kip his first year with team penske and it's kind of like one of those things sometimes in you know DJ i it's maybe you don't expect it so it doesn't hit you as hard and then in to finally win the second one master he was in contention to win the championship so he can easily be three championships in a row on that list in that list we sees only the second an american to have multi championship so the sky's the limit for him and with team penske and and when you drive for team penske anything but especially in the indycar series you know how much that means to roger penske to tim syndrich and he's done everything right for for basically three years there's now when it's it's pretty amazing to see i can't wait to see what he's going to do for the next ten years ago DJ you know they used to end it snowman this is the first time the final races at laguna nisa and we can crunch the numbers and the math and as a crew chief that's what i would be doing but you heard literally was crying in the final lap you've heard how was the beginning where he thought they were throwing the championship away sometimes have we get too caught up on the numbers sounds like it was a nerve wracking day even weeks leading up to this yeah even when you know you're in the best position of everybody if you you go do your job which has happened out your long if you just go do that then you're going to win but you also know from the other side of it how many things can happen so it becomes so tough when you just have a number that you have to meet i think in my championship year that was the hardest thing and i had a couple of races to get it done but even where i clinched at homestead it was so oh hard knowing where you had to run instead of going and running and doing your normal things and so you get caught up as he was talking about this has been his lifelong dream as many of us have lead that that he's able to receive now he's done that two out of three years he's won this championship just an incredible talent and really happening so you can get it done again well as we see joe gibbs winning winning on the cup side team penske dominant indy five hundred and the championship so were now the question is we're going to see the captain at cup races i assume we are now they have all those trophies on the shelf i would assume so i think they have like thirty seven total wins this year between everything that roger paseo and so yeah i mean it's would it just seems like we know every whatever roger penske touches it seems like it turns to gold so yeah i think joe gibbs might have something to say about about one in the cup championship that's why we're going to watch these cool track for goodness sake i'm hooked chance i home race that's my home race track there that yeah that was it now how's the corkscrew it looked awesome man it takes your breath away so it's it's one of the coolest corners in the world it's such a great venue to end the season it was a blast to watch in a blast to see the pressure but coming up we'll get a preview this sunday's race at the charlotte role and event and has become an ultimate wildcard carver can't forget this finish into guys this weekend sixteen playoff drivers landed the role twelve will leave sunday one thirty NBC he is going to be a blast DJ sample size one race track tweaked a little bit rules tweak a little bit what am i gonna see on sunday ah anything at all last year and i think when you put all of those things that you just mentioned together it just opens the door for a lot of drama and you know if there wasn't any lack of that last year i believe that just intensifies because we have a group of drivers that run around each other a lot during these racists and and so you never know what's going to happen but i think that upfront i expect to see the normal ones i think true is probably the man to beat caen sweep this first round i think it's very possible that would be a statement for sure AJ you're in the car saturday let's talk about the tracks specifically you mentioned street course with banking we're going back to almost the same course the big difference right here the backstretch chicane i want to applaud marcus smith everybody questioned this track to begin with they came they created the race was great but this is a huge huge undertaking to wideness backstretch chicane it used to basically have a little left right within the confines of the back straightaway you see how much they have moved i think this is going to be a big improvement but you're the road course expert what do you think the chicane is going to do to the race i think definitely on corner entry there off of nascar to charlotte to going into this tight briggs briggstone that gives another opportunity because what would happen last year was you couldn't really make a pass into the chicane unless the guy messed up getting onto the banking and you could get fully early side by side so now this is a big zone what may cause and we see bubba wallace here that was the biggest problem with this when you got it wrong the consequences quences were huge eric jones same thing in practice i was actually shocked during the race that everybody i think we've had so many accidents up to that point in practice and testing that everybody what he just took a little easier but you couldn't do anything he was single file you had to just kind of get your way through now with this into the chicane the break zone is a real break zone because before that you would literally just tap the breakdown shift and almost throttle back up but it's going to cause more chaos because we're gonna see guys get bold into the corner corner and those turtles are still there so if you get wide you start bouncing off them the exit we can have some carnage as well and i think it will still have how passing zone off of banking nascar four into the last corner where for the viewer real quick the traffic is coming from the left into the sharper edge and then leaves to the right a new shape and i think what we're going to have on new tires maybe not as much but it's the tire store get used up the drive off the corner still going to be critical so if you start spinning the tires up the last corner and we saw mark short's junior jimmy johnson have that that contact they're still going to be a passing zone as well so they've done a great job that make the racetrack safer actually probably create at least another passing zone and still the place where there's probably going to be a lot of chaos okay so two things that is it wrong of me to say more chaos be fantastic to watch this name yeah so that's good and the other thing that i saw on the exit of that corner it's like it's a little longer drag strip there you're you're talking about getting these cars slowed down more so you're gonna have to downshift and then that launched so it may open up an opportunity to get side by side in terms three and four on the banking yeah well what makes it challenging race track even more exciting challenging to competitors and we talk a lot about the sixteen playoff drivers that have been in the field but we have seen already this year whether it was a suarez has been involved volved jimmy johnson had some quotes about how he was raised and even saturday night at richmond we had an issue with a playoff a non playoff driver right now the dog he gave everybody behind you the next race is all dylan in the middle william byron up top there's just not enough space for everyone does in fact in any back hitting back back how you may be in the playoffs and run the over eight cents to eighty eight rich at dover fat on it doesn't do it later when we don't hurt us the penalty targets got together we ruined the car in iraq do that lots of layers here so the first let me say that before i had the audio i was fine with what austin dillon did i think that that move by alex bowman is aggressive of an attorney one i'm okay with it because he needed to have it but there are repercussions yes and i think the ADA went in there now is a little disappointed after the radio the find out perhaps the owner dr richard children's says i believe that we heard in the crew chief kind of encouraged or actually almost ordered awesome don't have to go back to eighty eight and he didn't seem on bored with it you're the veteran of the group you go what did you see of this well let's go back to what you were talking about it what alex bowman did to start this whole issue you is that he was trying to take advantage of the situation and i think the playoff drivers expect to be given a little bit more courtesy and that's wrong of them to think that i appreciate gate that you worked hard to get into the playoffs but in the playoffs in nascar everybody's still participates in everybody's still has a fair i think most drivers that aren't in due extend a courtesy most of the time but when you put somebody in a bad position i think that you might as well get expect to be paid back a little bit whether it's total span van or just a bump having to tell your driver to go do that i think it's totally up to the driver in that situation as to how you handle that situation and and you so in this case as we heard that audio that's a little different than what you hear most of the time but often did it and i didn't have a problem with what he did in the race suarez and lugano at vegas and then i was shocked there was some quotes from jimmy johnson basically saying he wasn't appreciated how he was raised at las vegas by some of the playoff guys now granted he's never been the guy on the outside i i really think this is a little bit of the affected the entire season with this new rules package used to be daytona talladega everybody was mad because nobody helped one another but now it seems like every mile and a half it just stokes that fire again and again and again this is the move between the gano and score is it turns back around the twenty two in the wall right here off turn to you think it is what these guys are expected to every week is that why we're seeing maybe it's even a little more heated than in years past i went i wouldn't disagree with that i do really think with this package it puts all these drivers in situations at most of these racetracks now hope where you can't really take breath i mean we see on the restarts at all these mile and a half racetracks distract heck at darlington three four down the back straight away it builds up every week this is the longest season in professional sports and his drivers heating like every weekend like okay here we go again for what it is you are where you aren't points because you're usually racing that same group drivers uh every weekend and i've been on both sides of it i made the playoffs one year and i spent a couple of years not in the playoffs and yes the playoff drivers they expect a little bit more courtesy and you don't wanna be the guy you don't wanna be the guy that rex guy so he doesn't make it to the next round or doesn't win the championship but i always looked at it is they have more to lose than i do we're not in the playoffs so what does that mean i'm quite mad fly jimmy johnson never ever been there before never been in the playoffs so he's upset every weekend he shows the racetrack upset not being in the playoffs daniel suarez he's now with the second organization organization that has caused that have won what forty fifty races over the course of five years and you can't joe gibbs stewart haas racing combined he's not in in the playoffs so he's frustrated he hasn't gotten to win yet austin dillon are cr they're just having a poor year so all these drivers that aren't in the playoffs they're upset so sure they might give a little courtesy but all it takes us just a little nudge and then it just set you off and you got to remember that you have more to lose than they do so how much of a risk risk are you willing to take why bring this up because non-playoff drivers chaos and the rove let's go back a year we couldn't have built this last lap arrive and it really happens on a late restart and you go back to the rosval they go down and turn one and they wreck all kinds of race cars including kyle larson which is one of the playoff drive is trying to make the the playoffs and then you out on this last lap and he limps this car around the race track i mean this is coming into the last corner first of all the leaders wreck so this changes changes who's going to win the race completely brian blades sneaks through this is just the start of this crazy fit as all the way back jeffrey earnhardt gets spun out hitting in his car read fired right here you see daniel henriksson crispin the ninety six into the wall this isn't a video game folks this is kyle larson who was involved in that restart wreck i mentioned he's driving this thing around like a video game in the gas in the wall jeffrey earnhardt couldn't get his game brief fuck so listen jefferson is not in the playoffs yeah this is how every car on the race track matters and that's why i think we bring this up because you mentioned those little nudges that's going to happen all the time at that role that slow intersect that slow infield section there are going to be some frustrated guys and we seen we keep looking at the points there are so many drivers grouped up from from basically ninth oh take out air jones having to win the race but obviously he's going to be doing everything he has to to try to win it but you take from nine on back couple of stage points here and there they can shift everything so everybody in that group i think kyle larson i'm not gonna say he's fully fully safe but twenty-five up he saved until he misses out on the first day that's true he brings us zero in the first day he's not fully safe so you can put calor in that group but that's nine drivers that are going for four or five spots and it's just gonna be everybody on edge restarts at the roble we've seen or chaotic strategy tires because it does wear tires out there so yeah it's it's it's going to be insane drivers are frustrated you're going to run into somebody i don't care where you're running there's contact so that's so as a crew chief i'm coaching my driver up i'm saying DJ listen i know you wanna run good and but but we column turtles things in this car will make you hit them all day long don't come back to me and said this thing broke this is one of the few tracks still exists much like watkins glen were the drivers can break a race car not to mention running into another race car so i'm gonna ask my driver to allow manage the emotion and the race track yeah and i think you brought up a great point while ago how how the package this year it used to be you had daytona and then you had a couple of months way talladega then you had a couple of months where you back to daytona and then a couple more months for you we're back at talladega take time to calm down from these ultra competitive races where all of this builds up inside of you and you kinda mad at everyone unless you happen to win the race and so okay but now they face this on a weekly basis and we could see things like that happen just a nudge can turn in you know it can set somebody else where that used to not matter now they're so much on edge they just that node send you over the street course meaning the walzer right there so if you're at the guy you don't have to hit him hard stuff you're done let's roll this thing camara i'm ready now coming up our grassroots racing for as to the land of famous potatoes in short track exciting where adding to idaho next i have have you ever wondered if you're a better football coach or car owner let me say this over here i don't do anything so i think in football vault least i could scream at people and everything these these guys screaming at me this sport is so much like football people walk around the corner and they go you're not going to believe this and i said yes i will i've already been through this once people love to see cars raced the competitive part of it and all the fun things that happen i'm just thrilled to be a part of it and our family loves being a part of it well deejay did you yell at hebert he'll yeah you know i never yelled at coach now i always listen yes so i was i guess i was kind of like one of his football players that he can yell at when he needed to this girl's really well i bet he does i would i would want no part of it guys you can check out drivers and dreams grassroots racing in america this saturday at one pm eastern right here NBC it's a great great program we've been putting together really this whole year has been about grassroots racing your local short-track i love it i think we all were raised i mean not all of us have laguna seca as our home track all of us go to different places different so i think it's going to be great short track racing is really starts yeah and that's what it's all about is bringing that grass roots knowledge college to be a general fan base that's not full hardcore into racing yeah i think we've had over two hundred tracks to participate now with the placard and everything and sending in photos so she's been been great we have forty eight states one of them's not racing against hawaii i don't think rhode island has a track nebraska was a little slow we're picking on rick allen rick got reached out we got nebraska well today our grassroots tore fifty states brings us to meridian speedway and idaho this quarter mile jeff has been hosting great short-track actions since nineteen fifty one of the tracks signature events of the diamond cup kyle alberton claimed the title of this year beating his dad eighty his own dad but i'll take meridian speedway lies within the shadow of the CD's iconic water tower back trophy is a replica of the landmark idea the shelf no doubt and meridian has some nascar routes from west coast legend ray elder to rising star maria guys has actually with the site of haley deacons first nascar win one year ago with this saturday canaan pro series west returns to idaho he looks to repeat dane ground on the points leader derek krause i liked that blew up the rate actually radio staff to move somebody rates little tracks like this you gotta make it happen right yeah i like it all right we'll heading into sunday's race at the ruble which play on drivers are about to have their bubbles burst break it down and have the conversation going gonna be upset on sunday i i felt like we brought a spoon to a sword fight tonight where we just missed the start this thing skin recovery we just kept kept lavish struggled apology so you're back their racing sir all you can to stay on the lead lap you're in the playoffs yeah what do you got to give yourself a fighting chance you know i knew i could count on richmond and to be a good run forest just fighting hard we'll come back swinging again yeah i was surprised better i thought we'd have had a really good long on car which is kind kind of third best ended up with is maximizing the day that are called was capable of i don't think we're as good as long martin are the combination thereof us combination of black little bit you know it's like the eleven lack a little bit more than us yeah weird i i don't oh no we just weren't quite as fast as the the gibbs cars you know the the gibbs cars were they could turn the center they get in the corner and they put the power down and they were just artists off the corners when the sun comes up tomorrow tonight doesn't matter anymore we can't go back and fix tonight tonight's over so we've got to focus on the roble and go there and have a good weekend you can go to the robot i think we'd have a good shot there to advocate resulted hopefully for a top five or something like that would be nice it's gotta get sage points and have tale day if you don't make an extra we don't really deserve to be there with the way we're running right now so it's definitely a bummer but we gotta get our stuff together we'll use don't know what's going to happen six weeks so fifty points and they said feel semi comfortable the where he can you have a decent day and and be more aggressive i think in trying to go for a win like do you want to go in there and in try to win a race so you want to try to win stages will allow rodney to be aggressive we go out there and attack it and try to get the most making trying to get a win trying to get some stage points at ourselves is you know a bit of a christian i guess more over recipes i guess there's a little silver lining that we're still above the cut line eight voice the good you've wanted the place we're going to give give you a lot of confidence when you don't have that position it's eight points out i guess fifty five points above the cut line how much assurance does that give have you had pretty pretty sure we're making strides albeit late in the season but nothing definitely making some gains more people will be just fine fine i'm looking forward to it's gonna be alright one race left in the round of sixteen we've been ramallah half venue short-track let's have to the rope nope we haven't heard three drivers in yellow there in i like brad at fifty five dania fifty four even lagaan was fifty the right hand side of the screen though it's gonna be pressure pract and pressure bill let's start DJ we'll talk with the last guy we heard from currently below when you think about clinton in the rural well he's a good road racer first and foremost yes i think that helps them and so i always look at trends and what might could happen so he had a he had a bad race then you had a good race and and then he got not so good he called richmond okay because he got some stage points and it turned out to be an okay i really believe lawyer finds a way to get it done somehow how some way he's going to run inside the top team i think when it comes to the border it's the relationship between him and his crew chief mike berger ravage they're going to have to spend some time together this week try to get on the same page age more than just sticking with each other believing with one another because you're not going to have an entire race there without an issue of some sort and the recovery from that issue will be the determining factor whether other internet so let's stick with the bees that was boyer how about william byron bought appointed snowmobile jody some highlights courses he's definitely been quick at the at the road courses zinni heyman chad canal just they're flying under the radar i thought they'd be a little bit better richmond but looking at obviously all team hendrix as they struggled so wasn't just them by themselves themselves and i've been really surprised about how good he has been when it comes to outright speed on the road courses so can he go author do it i think that this team can because that's what they've done all year they've just went out there make sure they've got the result that they need to and they keep moving forward i know richmond it wasn't anywhere close to having that little bit of a gap that they helped going into the robo but just knowing how solid that william byron has been how call me always seems chad canals with that leadership he can go there i don't think wins the race but goes aaron does enough to make sure he moved to the next round things you gotta be careful the last two weeks he found himself in bad spots not of his making necessarily but as a driver you're you're countable for where you are on the track but you know he's had some tire robes and things like that stab of those spots not much as he can be okay yeah unfortunately the points don't care if you 'cause someone they're gonna take away i agree i think it's going to be leadership on top of the pit box that's going to determine it for checking what else gonna find a way to get some points all right here's my wild card if you could put one fourteen points below i haven't moving through kurt busch i think he's a veteran he's a champion he he has found a way to approve every organization he's gone too it seems he did finally break through and get that win for chip ganassi racing i look for kurt busch to come out and just have what i call a solid day and come back from this issue i was kurt busch to move forward top ten in both stages in the end of the race but that means someone has to go out so my guy going unfortunately eric kahn role he's three above i don't see the ten car moving forward i think i think l. merola struggles here and mike and probably ends up on the outside of this it's going to be a real shame if kurt busch doesn't get him because he's had such a solid regular season but he's had two terrible finishes now i mean i expected more from the richmond moment really expected him to run inside the top ten all night and gather a lot of points never was even close to that so he's going to have to have his best performance i love blaine his attitude eight above better than below hey that's pretty good bath what do you think i think he's going to be really solid i'm he won the race last year he won the race because of what happened last corner but you you still got to put yourself in that position to win the race at watkins glen he was really strong it's normal he was strong definitely hasn't had the pace this whole twelve group hasn't the pace as his teammates especially breakfast lousy over the last few weeks but this is a race track where ryan blaney strong there's not a lot of background around two notes when it comes to the racetrack so he has one of the best sets of notes out of everybody and he just knows how to get the job done when it's time and i think brian blaney with coffin dansk moves to the next round regardless of who's in or who's out the race is going to be a must watch without a doubt but this week nascar america dale jr. is joined by his longtime tampa and his former boss my former boss hall of famer rick hendrick he joins the download tomorrow at five PM eastern on wednesday motormouth ricky stenhouse junior answers answers your question maybe one of you will ask why he ran into mark checks junior next time for shutouts i've got a question for i heard you're wearing shorts back back somebody said a picture of me insurance minor league my legs are stovepipes okay and i never got hurt in any sport board because you can't hurt stovepipes okay and i look absolutely awful so i have to find that someplace you ever got that pitcher it's time for chateaux here's coach and it was a big weekend for coach gives it a great weekend for coach gives it really started on friday friday night by shoutout christopher bell dominates just dominates fix any series race norway put about it but this is the way the coolest part takes the checkered flag i looked up and down found this kid right here in a poor theat christopher bell serta plus but my shadow christopher bell giving away the flag that's okay we'll we'll stick with joe gibbs having a great weekend when his grandson goes to new hampshire and wednesday cayenne in race so this is todd gibbs winning that so oh just continued ride on the coach victory lane everywhere they did win sticking with new hampshire we're i go to the nascar penny series the canadian series got a huge wreck here but age range across the fish i don't care he's not here win the race takes over the points lead i used to race against him of champ car in the musket to fifty bobby santos winds coming to the line here

09-27-19 NASCAR America Fan Friday

"That's right records. We see William Byron to celebrate that poll is five thirty East Coast time on a Friday and that is reason to celebrate in its race weekend in short-lived welcome to Fan Friday on the mobile one peacock pit box with Dale Jarrett and Dale earnhardt. Jr. is going to join us in just a bit but if you're watching that you know he's up there so you see here but he's GonNa move quickly to get zip line for him to get here. That would be a great yeah. That's the only thing they don't have. You're probably this weekend for everyone marcus. I guess is listening. I could happen yeah sure good. I don't know how much junior would be in favor of doing something like that from up top but what a great qualifying session I shouldn't that was and especially for drivers that are sitting there. That really needed to have something positive to start their weekends. They try to make that next round of the playoffs and we have next hour for for you. We're going to have actually going to hear from Ricky stenhouse junior obviously in the news this week. Marty Schneider caught up with him so we're going to hear from him. We've got some visitors. Come come by within kyle. Larson's GonNa come join us. We're going to talk about BUBBA Wallace and we're GONNA see Joseph New Garden Indycar. Champ take a couple of laps around the royal. That'll be exciting yeah. D- a whole different perspective perspective of a car going around the rebel ear so now. I don't think there's anything in the few who knows what might be in the future with that with him being here but back to have the champ here yeah he was up here on the mobile one p cockpit boxers a little while ago with Stephen Tar during that qualifying sessions's car getting ready so William Byron on the poll really Hendrick motorsports front row oh with Alex Bowman Jimmy Johnson quit so I mean. Is that something something become the fact that William Byron is GonNa stay point. They kind of started that map appreciation back in it's a nomad another road course yeah exactly right and they did that. Did it very very well questioned what they were doing it the Tom but check and asking exactly what he was doing with young driver here descend outstanding lap there they set themselves up in position now to run the race that they want to the way that they want to. The obviously has a very fast car he steps. It's up in big moments for these qualifying efforts and what he needs is just another solid effort sure a win would be fantastic but just getting a good solid effort through the stages and at the end of the race same for Alex moment he if something he really needed sitting just outside there to try to make this happen. Yeah Jeff Gordon Young the twenty four congratulating the Tornado pretty cool to see here Charlotte Motor speedway and here on the fan for it. You have a fan Friday without Rutledge Wood Hay right KRISTA. Well you know what I got a really cool view and I got to watch a little bit of inequality there with a bunch of fans that were down here on pit road. If you WANNA talk about a fan Friday then let's give credit where credit's due this kind. Young man got his mom a trip to Charlotte for Christmas last year through Chase Elliott's foundation. You're going to get to meet chase. You got a helmet. You're ready did. Did you know that you could get a Christmas present that good now. I have a terrific son. I introduced him NASCAR and now you've been here to show it for the race before four but I will tell me your thoughts so far. It's very intense. I'm sure aggravations. GonNa set in Latte tempers along with the weather. That's for sure. What do you think I mean. Obviously you get an award for. Maybe that might be the best Christmas present. You could get your mom. I'm just excited. I'm glad she's here. She introduced me to NASCAR racers racers for for some fun on Sunday. Now you guys got to watch out here on pit road. You've got seemed bringing so much heat and we know Joseph New Gardens GonNa get the indy-car out here shortly. Did you know oh how cool this view could be down here. I had passed before six hundred so yes that's why I wanted to bring mom long and she can enjoy the funds well. It's amazing. I mean Chrissa Circa. I feel like I'm going to have to get my mom a much better Christmas present after this so we sons out there needed to take note daughters to you. GotTa bring the Heat especially for the wroval oval. Hello I know setting the bar pretty high in Raj. Are you going. Is it true. You'RE GONNA talk to Joseph New Garden. Are you going to go. That's my plan. I have golf carpets can be real hard to keep up with that in the car. It is signing Patios car that ran in the race last week but I'll do my best. I'm going to try to find him for sure. We're going to enjoy away watching that. Though that's coming up in a little bit for any kind of fans come from all over her yeah. I'll say and this is something that is still very unique. Even though it happened your last she was the first year of this. It's different. I come in here thinking. I'm coming to Charlotte Motor speedway but it it feels like something totally different which it is a for the drivers nothing for us to discuss and talk about even where we sit. The mobile went boxes at Pitt out but we're so we feel like we're so far away from the pit exit because they're going to go down into that new. Turn one yeah yeah. It was fun standing here yeah. It was just amazing to watch how they navigate through that my son. Zach is out here today with me and he wanted to come down and see that because it's something something you know he saw me race around the oval for many years but didn't see this last year wasn't so is pretty exciting to get out there and watch just how they do and then to come off the last corner. I mean in how much they were using that and it was throwing the cards up in the air. Just incredible wash Jimmy Johnson and Alex Bowman in particular. Get Lot of air under the I think that's why Jimmy likes it so much took him back to his two days yeah okay. We're GONNA have Kyle Larson. Come up here. I think Kyle Larson is here so when we come back from Break Kyle Larson's GonNa Climb up here. Oh Stevens hard is taken it can also kyle might not come up here because he saw down in the basement talking to. Steve couple of persons about the rule. I imagine right have repeat relationships had a very good shot to win the cautioning. Come out which set up big a crash into one. I knew as in bad shape. It's I kind of was. I guess he's giving up. Maybe that'll be in this past year. Allows Kyle Larson to move on and Kyle Larson was watching that along with you at home. You had a smile because it'll take you back to what happened right behind us a year ago. Yeah I mean I hadn't unheard like the new. That was a lot audio. I got to hear there so you know. It was a wild wild last few minutes for me there. I mean just uh driving into this wall over here. was not cool and then. I thought I was over in happen. I just think that's about the first time NASCAR career. I've ever gotten really lucky so I just wish we could have taken more advantage of throughout the playoffs but yeah that was wild. I mean did you were driving this. I just shake my head every time I see this. We've shown all week but I mean this race car had to be a handful just to drive off pit road way. Roy As you can see right there. It wouldn't turn laughed so I could turn right okay but you're the right front. Suspension was so beat up that I couldn't turn left so it would you just go straight and blue tire out off of the oval four there and hit the wall and then crush the wall before the start finish line so took a couple for decent size hits there but enough to make it in the next round. Fortunately today's been a lot calmer day but you said that you thought you had a shot at the pole. There may have got into into the chicane. They're a little bit hot yeah He. I felt like I ran a ninety five or something I I I run there and my second round felt a lot better and yet it's got into the tear or the chicane. We'll hop right before injury and was had a bail and yeah you know messed up and had tape go back out and ended up seventh so with hot air or hot tires in higher considering a good lap not but thought. I had a good shot the poll he mentioned the Chicane for people who may be new to watching this. It's totally different than last year. How different is it. I mean you obviously have to approach it a lot slower because they made it a true but kind of what is what was it like in practice yeah. I think it's better for sure you know. It's a lot less sketchy. who was twice both describes sketchy. How was your ask your. Gosh your current speed in that you tire barrier in the curbing. was just in a bad spot and it made it really really just difficult. You know there was no room for error or this year. You know it's it's. It just feels more like a road. Course you know type corner so I like it. I think what the heavy braking zone to helps open up another passing zone which is good so I think I think the track Nascar you made a good decision of bringing out into the Infield some more talk about that. Infield seen a lot of action there in the Cup series practice and also the xfinity practices that we saw a lot going on there. Can you describe just how tough that is and how slick that. The asphalt may be on the infield part of this yeah. Definitely it's it's hard to see from video but you know like exiting turn one here. It's really rough in through one into so it upsets the balance so I think that's why it crashes have happened and then you all these corners are kind of fast fast right handers and trying to carry a lot of speed and your cars on edge and it looks like it's been really easy for people to step over that edge in the back into the wall so it's just a it's such a it's a it's a fun attract new tight end. There's not much room fair anywhere so you said twenty five points above that cutline right now what's your approach and you're thinking as far as how to play this race out through the first couple of stages at least well last year we were seventeen points of the cut line going in the race in one. The first stage picked up eleven stage points in then. We had the crash in you. I got in on a tiebreaker so I think that shows how you really. I'm not safe right now. So we gotta make sure that we stay out of trouble in in in Finnish race. I think as long as we can finish the race inside the you know obviously inside the top OP twenty we'll be able to make it in the next round so but I feel like I have a good shot to go out there and lead a Lotta absolutely last year in pick up a lot of points in you'll win the race so war on her car some more tomorrow try and get more stability built into it and get a win for clover and chicken ass racing and how we you can do you feel like you guys have been sort of under the radar in these playoffs because you're kind of that. Senate the middle guys if you will in terms of at least where you are in points and are you okay with that. I feel like we kind of under the radar slightly the last couple of months We've been up front a lot. We haven't been too flashy about it. which is good in our playoffs has been same thing you know good and not flashy. I feel like Vegas. We had a good run going and we had a pit road penalty in fought back to finish finish seventh or eighth or something in your last week. Richard and we just kind of there you just outside top-five race and finished there and gained a few points Winston Cutoff in in the role so I think you can you can do that in the first round and maybe possibly the second round but once you get into third around that's when you gotta start you know rack into stage points in you'll get a win yeah toad not to get ahead of itself because I know you've got a lot of work to do Sunday as you just pointed out but saying that you make it through this yet to be pretty excited that dovers first on the list one of your better racetracks over the years that might be a possibility to grab a victory quickly ended. Find yourself in the round of eight for sure. I feel like the next round. is better racetracks for me. this round we got Kansas in Dover. New Kansas Kansas. I run really well out. Dover is probably my best track you if you look at stats and things and then you Talladega anything happened there so I could win or I could wreck the first lap so I I like the second round a little better than this one. I feel like for me YOU VEGAS I. I figured we would do good at Richmond. I'm I'm either hit or miss their you know I'm either decent or below average. thankfully this time we hear decent in roble you know is kind of another wildcard reading happened so looking for the next round in and then even even the third row. We happen to make it there. Aside from Martinsville I feel good about Texas and Phoenix so hopefully just goes smoother than we have for my playoff history. Thanks for coming over here. You're invited anytime next time. Bring Audrey. We love her facial expressions during pre race. Yeah it's awesome. She's a lot of fun and yeah. She's a daddy's girl so of course watching so now. Make sure you're not bugging Graham right now. Okay some words of advice. Thanks guys good luck to you on Sunday. Thank you look hey rutledge. Where are you KRISTA. I'm I am here on pit road and Fan. Friday is continuing because Joseph New Garden is here with his indycar and he's about to take some laps around Charlotte Motor speedway here the Robo and when I say Fan Friday. It's not just fans of racing. It's people that are in racing. Good are also fans of people like Joseph New Garden. How about the crew chief that just got the Paul Chad Canal. Just stop by a minute ago to come say hi to Joseph each so cool to see this out here every photographers out here everybody that has a minute. That's not working on a cup car. Believe is out here right now watching this but they right now. They're not sure how many laps are going to get. They put the red sticker tires on here. which a little bit stickier? This is actually carly. Simon Paseo ran last week at Laguna Seca. They re wrapped. It and you mentioned earlier during qualifying. This Michelle wanted to do but really exciting. We're going to try try to talk to him after the lapse which could be two it could be eight or he may just pull the Richard Petty move and go until they black flag them thus delaying the afternoons activities you. I really have no idea here could go either way guys. That's what I thought. I thought maybe he'll do what the king did and just stay out there so we look forward to seeing Joseph new garden out there in an Indycar in just a little bit Mike Right said he's going to be right there and try to talk to his and we also did talk today to the other part of that big news this week that happened with Roush fenway racing you'll here from Ricky stenhouse junior where we come back to ban Friday the big games big shows big events and the role the elimination race for NASCAR's certainly one of those down here at the mobile one peacock pit box and Dale Earnhardt Jr. joining the party right now. Did you hear Neil Jarrett's suggestion for how a quicker way for you to get to the booth down here. Zip Line Sounds Fun. The WE'RE GONNA talk about the Robo. We have some guests stopping by. I know you dismiss Larsen B. You're able to talk to him as he left the pit box but the other other of driver that everyone's sorta wanted to hear from is Ricky stenhouse junior after the big news this week. Marty Schneider caught up with them. We're talking about the happenings with this week and what happened happened on Wednesday. I kind of walk us through the timeline of how it all went down and when you learn what you learn Tuesday night I got a text to stop by the shop and then Dan Wednesday morning drink coffee getting ready to go work out my agent calls and says hey they told me come to the meeting so then you started kind of speculate relate and then and then you know eleven thirty or so I kind of found out you know hour and a half or so before everybody else found out so it's got last minute but you know like I've told people and like I call Jack and told him I mean it's it sucks. It's gotten to this point but you know looking come back being able to come from Mississippi racing dirt cars and sprint cars and you know what I was able to do there and then you know come win. Championships been chips and and racist for Jack and right now the last two cup wins you know I was able to get for them so that's pretty special and like I told him I'm thankful for the opportunity that that I had over eleven years which is a long time I still feel like I got unfinished business in the series so hopefully I can find something to to showcase that I'm sure when you sit down that meeting the first question one would ask. Why did you get a good answer for that question. No no not really so I think that's the frustrating part I you know there's really no clear answer as to why how when you just know it was last minute for for my team and I you know to to go look for something else but you know we still got some racist laughter after I'm looking forward to my guys on the seventeen hundred and keep giving me great race cars and we got some really good tracks left and we're gonNA showcase what we got for. You know our sponsors dancers on the car for each one of those weeks and see if we can't end the season on a strong note looking for something else you mentioned eleven years in racing route. She described Jack Rushes. She's a grandfather to you. Does that make this more difficult the personal relationships it does it does and you know like. I told Jack. I was pissed off angry but at the same time I never thought I'd have a shot to come you know race for Jack. Welch and that relationship that we've built. We've had some vet some tough conversations over the years. This is probably the worst one but you know all in all no hard feelings to Jack and you know everybody at all. The employees aroused fenway racing like I said I've been there so long and I don't know anything else so you know Kevin Nervous about that not being at the same same team that have been comfortable with for a long time but then again I think change is good sometimes and see see what see what the future holds wanted to wait to talk to Jack Until Thursday night. You guys had a phone conversation. Was it a terse conversation. How would you describe the conversation. The conversation was was easy really you know. I didn't really have many questions. It was more. Just you know thanks and appreciation for you know what he was able to help me with so what happens now is the phone ringing. Have you been calling people. We've been contacting people trying to figure out what our the next steps are. Obviously you know eight races left in the season. It's kind of difficult to drum up anything spectacular when when you when you weren't really expecting it so my teams working hard on trying to figure out those next steps. Well hope we see here full time next year. Thank you great interview there with Marty and some pretty honest thoughts junior from former stenhouse that sounds like a lot of respect for Jack and everything that happened but caught him by okay by surprise to death all he that interview very well and that's the way this business goes sometimes you some some hard decisions have to be made and unfortunately Ricky's going to have to go you know get boots on the ground and figure out what opportunities may be out there for him and I think it was just a shock for everybody everybody because we had heard from butcher side and and the thirty seventeen that they were working clothes on an agreement to keep butchery in that car and Jack Rouch or the Rosh Organization had and you know some language in an old contract that still tied them to the services of Chris Bush so you know it's it's pretty pretty crazy that that that's what's come. You know come about more. It's come to light but those rows house contracts have always been really impressive over the years and there's there's. There's you know there's there's reasons why rashes successful and Jack is smart smart businessman this man when he when he puts words on the contract they're they're. They're not there for for no reason and this is. This is played out well for him because Bush your has impressed people in that thirty seven car not just over the last several months. He's been very competitive in that car in one one want to race that he shouldn't have won even though it was over strategy but he put himself in that position and he's ran really really good in that thirty seven car so I've always felt like that. Chris Butcher was a driver that would show out if given the right race car and team. I feel the same way about Ricky stenhouse searcher if this is a lateral move for for Buscher but look at what Ryan Newman has to go from our CR to rouse ration- in one year Chris Chris Butcher can look at that and be excited. I guess about what might be there for him next year. Is Your tough times. I think for all these people involved to make these changes changes so so dramatically yeah it's unfortunate for Ricky stenhouse Jerry. He's a he's an excellent representative for all the sponsors that he's been involved fogged with. He's a really good race car driver and as he pointed out the last two wins for row fenway come via getting the job done so did those two wins being own plate tracks did that detract from his value a little bit up probably so in some people's eyes but I've always thought that given the right equipment Whitman but I think the one thing if ricky has something that kind of works against him as that here comes a veteran Ryan Newman into the fold and has helped make this into a better team and organization as we see that pretty cool though to to hear that and to be able to watch him your but I think that you rickie is a great driver. Maybe not as good communicator and he'll move the needle in sports what was needed to make the race cars better there to compete at our level but Chris Bush will go there and do well. It hopefully ricky by something that fits him so discussion will continue to have throughout the course of the weekend. I think we'd be remiss if we didn't talk about what we're seeing on the track right now junior pretty cool to see any car out there with the with the champion behind the wheel yeah absolutely this is really awesome to be able to see what this car can do. This is a unique situation. I think for any card to make Lancet the transitions out of the Infield road course a bone banking had to be rather challenging for this car driver Ursa interesting to see this happen that this isn't just a fun here on Marcus love to have these guys the race for real one day and this could be a trial. We're looking at double header weekends right those Cross Promo that cross promotion. Is it really cool. Yeah it is and I love. I love to theorize. I haven this potential for gotTA. Come out here this series to come out here and race at in this track no-hitter would be a lot of fun guys looking join the Party. This has uh-huh. You'd like to have those times fighter jet you know on the Ground Joey Logano I were this was sitting there watching him. Hang out down there the first time I've ever seen any car race track doing this a long time and it's the first time I've ever heard anything sounds weird. You know so cold older see over motor sports. Try Out. Try His hand at this race. Check it. I think you're right. You're probably seeing the first test session for Indycar. He car on on a on our road right here. I think you know why would we bring those guys and embrace. There's or join it's a great idea talking to Joseph. Down there right off second chairmanship his busy signing autographs but no it's just a super cool to hear and and you just want a championship probably ought to be sitting on a post somewhere celebrates. Charlotte with US pretty cool as he goes around this racetrack. What are some of the most challenging parts about this course anything you think would be presented to the yes. Yes man. I'm telling you I've never been on a track as treacherous. Is this one. It seems like there's so many opportunities to mess up and I think you see that through the course of today's practice sessions whether it was xfinity or cup you saw people making mistakes stepping over that line the least little bit. I've never been on a racetrack where it was that easy to do and not just that one corner you know every racetrack. Has that one corner owner of this place. It seems like almost every single corner you go through. It's this holding your breath and pray on the new. ooh I like it in. I said this media obligation today. I said that I almost think it's it's more dangerous now than it was and I don't mean that as a safety aspect suspect as your overall performance in a day your outcome of the day everybody a lot of us including me needing a big day out of this on Sunday. It's very opportunistic missed corner to make a mistake. I mean it's well. I didn't call goldline overthrow. The quantock in this much asserts wheel hop over is series of bumps in the surface of the track that do set. We'll hop in there. I don't think I think it's a it's Ju- just asking a lot out of your equipment in the short amount of time and and everywhere walk ins and all those places seem like there's a little bit of wiggle room a little bit of room right. There's none you're asking so much out of your car to go from from wide open fourth year wide open down a first year you know in a corner. That's so slow to first gear. I've never been on any racetrack where you go from four hundred I and since Kinda Kinda speed yet looks like the infield part of this plant is is maybe the most treacherous it that likes the most valuable. I think it may be as more than the tire doesn't fit up as well for that part of the course or that be accurate that tired. It's hard to explain to somebody. People ask all the time. Why is this Chernick. Why why do you say that you know. Why are you so nervous here that tire the grip level level in tire in it's been this way all season long. It's either stuck. You're comfortable and complained about me. Turn better you know it's too stuck the premium premium and then all of a sudden you get tired of lease little bit on top of the track and it's like marbles and that's what you see here with a lot of people make mistakes in practice that thing right right there looks extremely nice though he probably just went through that corner right there three and four seventy mile an hour faster than anybody's been through there all day. I'll tell you what this Zeno hanging out here the tire slide right here at the time for his last lab. I don't know about this. What do you think fast eleven seconds seconds faster than William Byron's poll instead. He never been out here in this call. Thank God for everybody. It's just like you said I mean to just go out there whether he's been there five laps and he's already you know bus. Lhasa eleven seconds faster than us but it's GonNa be interesting interesting to me to hear his comments on the racetrack. You know this is such a drastically different. It's it's a temporary track for us. You know what I mean. I mean it's it really this. We change this and go back to the table for our spring race. We've we've never done that in our sport. Obviously they do that so he's probably a little bit more accustomed to it and his indycar and their season in the tracks that they go to than us but I'm really interested to hear his comments on the racetrack and see that they get Lucia at their legal. That's a treacherous corner seen a lot of cars have trouble getting through their spinning out and hitting the wall right. They're getting three and tailing him. ooh Awkward parts of this race track whether you're in a car eighty car and they probably they probably counter some of those as well when they run the street courses those those awkward positions in quarters but I always wondered about this car transitioning into the oval. We don't see them run robles and the car the transition onto the banking for something. That's so close to the ground depending upon your depending upon that are being obviously that transitions not too bad navigating up on turmoil NASCAR. I think he was worried about US talking to joey before I came up here. He was definitely worried about the bumps on the race track. I G T you don't WanNa be on order them. Turtles and turtles are bad news bears car. They do the jumps one time. He's going to the hook but when you know you ask deal and and I guess that's a great way in the way I attack. This track is he really has to two things. You have the Infield that you have to be good at right right. There's a lot of speed to be gained in those those short tight corners throughout the Infield of the race track and then the other two are the interest of that she came and it's how how it being. How hard are you willing to push it without stepping over the line and the other one is right behind US insurance at the turn of the last corner here on the front straightaway free in front of all the fans and those two corners are very important and you can gain or lose a lot of time. They're just like throughout the infield. One of the trickiest things about this track that I feel like is different different again go into art art then the race tracks with Watkins Glen in Sonoma's as the difference. You must have a snowman type feeling the infield here but then all all of a sudden you get on that fast high-speed part of the race track on our normal turn three and four and one and two that's big time difference in speed that we have to deal with with our cut card cheese engineers and everybody else. That's a setup change kit. OUR CARS WANNA go fast and they WANNA be short track cars. They don't want it both so in boxes to check on this weekend. Approach knowing what you have to do and what you want to do. You got one of checked off. I'm sure that a top five starting position was was a one of those things you check that off. Where do we go from here. What your expectations are. What are yesterday's stage points stays parents you know in our situation or everything you gotta live and die? I buy those states points but I feel like we've been race in that way for the last month and a half or so. We really have kind of prepared ourself for this situation. You can't allow them to get those stage page points. You know they're in a situation for five stations for them is a big problem for us. if that opportunity in that window opens up for them. You've got to be able to take it you know from from them or keep them from it. You know whether that be stay out and get those stage points or whatever the case may be. You've gotta try to position yourself to not give them an opportunity to get get stage points that you can't get. I think is the hardest thing to try to navigate for my crew chief. Mike and in every other crew chief in that situation and then the the biggest problem with all of it is you gotTa take take a mistake and take yourself out of this situation this opportunity for us so you talk about how important stage points already use in. Stage one line states too but that presents a TR- tricky scenario at the end of the race for the other teams that did not use that strategy now. You may be behind several of those teams. We saw it so noma. Some guys were able to rebound and drive through that traffic somewhere not as a driver. Is that frustrating knowing that you've got to go in there and raise a certain way and sort of almost most risk that finish at the in well. It's I don't know that it's as frustrating as it is nerve racking. You know just like Indie. I think back to anything that opportunity -tunities the first state. We qualified well right. Everything's going smoothly and like all right. How how can this mess up for us. This is so much to easy in here. Comes here comes the caution with what tend to go. There's something we pitted Newman state out those six points or whatever and that was not what I needed right there that even Dr Points backup. Now your nerve you. You know you're nervous again going into that second stage but you gotta be patient. You cannot freak out and make a mistake on this race track. You've got to finish this thing. It'd be there at the end of the thing because you never know what caution is going to happen. Whatever perhaps going to happen on that front. Straightaway took out what ten twelve cars that was a huge monumental difference in the outcome of the race for not only us but a lot of teams the forty eight car car going for that win that he was needing you know. I mean that knocked him out and put some input Kyle Larson in right the there you know there's there's just you've got to stay in it. Stay stay focused. Keep moving forward and and you know stay focused on the task at hand and that's hard to do when no stage points are all over the place and in those cases in those situations are changing literally from lap not to give everybody the the idea of what you may would do but put yourself out about this what would outdone Jimmy Johnson's scenario areo last year he he stay there in second place and make it into the next round of the playoffs but he wanted to win a race because he hadn't done that in a while so you're racing teammate. So what might you do in that situation. I mean there is raised over alive. wouldn 't be sitting there backwards batting suffer back and not only him but the leader you're taking himself out of that situation in the playoffs hopes and everything else. Rachel alive that wouldn't it took that yeah that was an opportunity to win the first race arose and not to mention punched his ticket to the next deal right there in front of him for the taking. He didn't mean to do that but he was going forward and that's there's not anybody in sport at this level. Oh that wouldn't take that risk or they wouldn't be here now. Clint Boyer has a decision to make because he can either stay here and listen to what about to come up or he can head down victory lane and go. CNC If he can catch Joseph New Garden Ratledge I think I know which one clint's GonNa make. You'll see him running through the background shot any minute. We're going to talk to the guy who just finished. I in the first ever eighty car depot Joseph new gardens join us when we get back. Welcome to victory relate here at Charlotte Motor speedway the Robo. We're talking to the guy who somehow poulter in the clinch finished first in the first ever Indycar Demo on the Joseph knew. How is it out there man that was clearly. I was the winner of the Demo today. Um I just felt like we were so much better than the competition but it was funny pool in into Victory Lane. It's like yeah you did laughs but it was honestly it was a lot of fun. this is a really cool opportunity pennzoil provided for us. It's been great to just showcase our partnership ship with them. They were a big part of boat championships Joey last year. Are this year so to get to drive my Chevrolet Indycar out here today. It's kind of a little bit of a treat for me. I would say after the championship. This is like my gift. I feel alight. It's hard to make cup drivers as jealous as you just did but from Joey Ryan Blaney Clint Boyer was watching. How did the track feel to you in this car. Ah Honestly felt pretty good. I was really interested in the you know. We're a different series so we have a different tire. Make and normally on on back to back weekends or a single we can where you have different series running together. You have to clean the track up every time you're series goes out so I was kind of cleaning the track myself and it was getting better each run but I'll tell you what the NASCAR guys. I what I love is. They're interested in US and we're interested in them or you know you can tell that we're just racers. They love our race cars. I love there's the only thing I would have made me more excited was if I'm going to been able to get one of their cars. Today we might we might be able to do that so just getting off the track. If someone just said hey perfect world do you think it would be fun to run a cup car and say an Indycar car in the same week into a double header. Would you be down for that. I if you're asking me personally absolutely I mean I would love that opportunity. One Day I think it'd be really cool for the fans without a doubt you know. Why would you not want to have that doubled up on a weekend. I mean they're just both great championships and I respect these guys so much and I love keeping in touch with what they're doing so having a little closer access to them and then vice versa for us. I think it'd be a win win for everybody when you grab that Trophy Laguna Seca and you thought I'm champion of I've done it. Did you know that the we'd could get capped off by doing this. I'd no idea surprise pennzoil and also glad they did it. They've been such a good partner for us. you know for all the right reasons. They provide us the performance and the capability to go out and win but they're really great people. They provide something cool like this. This is one of the best gifts I could be given. After winning a championship this awesome thanks for putting on such a great show Chris. I don't know how he'll get out of here. The Cup drivers are literally just lining the outside here on the way. The media is going to be signing autographs. I I love it. I love the smile seeing the big smile on the champs face to so cool to have him here and Joseph. You're talking about a topic that that's not going away and that's the chance for NASCAR indycar double header and a we we talked about a deal at the indy five hundred and yes it happens truck series and indycar search have shared the track before but this discussion is sort of catching catching fire there yeah and I think it's something that the fans want. I think you know we we would as fans love to see the two series competing at the same race track during the same weekend because of the contrast both with an amazing show you'd have amazing personalities from both series so it would be as Josete of Santa Win for everyone and I liked what he said about being in close proximity to the other drivers in each series. I think they could all rub off on each other in a positive way yeah. I think it's a great idea. It needs to be made to happen sometime. In the next couple of year. I know that scheduled for next year but we can look to twenty twenty one and somebody somebody needs to make this happen and what what were Dale sorry imagine the crossover that could happen in the driver's from series series. Nice See indycar drivers competing events doing double duty that might not happen right out of the gate the first time but that would definitely be encouraged and I'm sure what happened many many more times as did those those those double state races yeah. They'd had put up more stay if it happened at a place like this even though they're seeks everywhere. I'm telling you'd have to bring stuff dovey and it'd be just an incredible weekend. I always enjoyed covering the truck series and those weekends I would be in Texas. Let's say and you'd have indy cars and trucks series and it was a lot of fun. I got to do a Tuesday souci ride along with Mario Andretti. Mario Andretti's here this weekend so we see the crossover continuing when we come back you know who's been a big influence on him in his racing career. We're GONNA find next in behind the driver fan. Friday from Charlotte Motor speedway continues after after this welcome back after we're done here on Fan Friday stay tuned for racing roots featuring Denny Hamlin as we meet some of the people in the places that helped shape him into a superstar star. Danny will have to start Sundays from the rear in a backup car. After a crash in practice per liter today and there were a lot of incidents bubba wallace involved in one of those as well of course. I Baba carries himself with confidence instilled that strong sense of self in Ham the answer in this week's behind the driver We all had people that influenced our lives that got us in a direction and Kinda helped mold who we are. Is there that person that you look back at how this started and if helped build you into the driver today. Yeah I think my dad and Chris Rogers who helped us get started who invited us. Come and watch him a lot of wins a lot of wrecks. He was someone that was not teaching you the ropes. We'll go karts forever. You just been around for a long time and go karts. Ben Layers legend cars late models challenge cars that you remember those allow we had like four. That's not on my resume. We don't even talk about those. what else helping. I'm not sure the HA old people that matter do yeah that's right. What did you think what else is going to take is in so talented. This is going to be fun to do it was taken to nationally. I raced Jasper Florida. Coen Jasper did get all day when I find runoff needed racetrack almost traffic. Let's put it all together and he went back again race race before what were the challenges along the way attention tensions Astro Cup of water bottles adding here there are new that I think I wish I would have realized how smart and my dad was when I was young because I wasn't listening to nearly enough blur their memories special memories. I mean winning our First Race Concord. I I mean I agree with you. I wish we all Wanna listen back then for us. We just went to the track and raced. Put our hearts on the line every time and that was it and whatever they said do this do that. You're like okay yeah but then you look back on. It's like that's actually the right thing to do. Even to this day racing on Sundays his career it's all about momentum and were you set yourself up on the racetrack and how you raise while the wallows wheeling the kings legendary number forty three running in third. He's trying to keep everybody behind him goes back to day one working with Chris my dad and like you said we didn't listen enough in the now that you mature a little bit can just cherish those moments considered. I on african-american the American kid had it mixed parents with the court tomorrow being black flash gear in one dragging. You know we have the right to the floor that was said towards towards the end and it Kinda he didn't like that and understand why we always fought for what was right and what was fair and that's what they told me a lot. We always had that fire and desire refusing to lose the biggest battle yeah he did not lose. WE DIDN'T WANNA lose in somebody would take shake us out. We'd go back up there and give all I take some on Sunday and even hard time all the time to do wrong and I sit there and think of if we never would've met Chris I wouldn't we're here to that. I was very slick and every one of these stories are just so much fun and I am sure you had a good time with that really was by end to see that that partnership that they had that friendship that is still there just how much it meant to each one of them to watch bob move along along and go through each series and become a better driver. Better person has a love that intensity it won't win. I saw him in a couple of the COQ drivers Austin Dillon and Joy Lugano and if you in a foot race over at the drag strip bubba whipped him. I'll say that he did win that but he drove the race of his life in my opinion at Indianapolis couple of weeks ago. I know that he had that great finish at the Daytona on a five hundred but that was impressive what he did. He's an excellent race driver just looking to take that next step. Yeah I love these. these opportunities to see a little bit of a behind the scenes for these drivers drivers we we get a lot of great story lines at the track what they're doing currently in the race cars but this is a way to sort of understand who they are how they became the drivers that they are today opportunities that they have out there in the Cup series that all developed Sunday. We're having another behind the driver William Byron. WHO's the pole sitter so we're looking forward to that as well in case you like these as well kind of keep them coming for you but something else that's coming up. It's cool is drivers and dreams debut of really cool show on Saturday at one o'clock. That's when you'll see it and we go all over the place Alaska main on New Mexico all of it was shot at local tracks on the very same day which makes it really cool. I know you're doing something with one of the hottest local drivers Chris coming up at at Martinsville Yeah Ashley. We got BUBBA. Pollard Rayson for junior motorsports next weekend in the big three hundred lapper Martinsville the biggest late racing late model stock car race of the year bubbas agreed to drive for us in junior motorsports car with his teammate. Josh Berry Bubbas just an incredible racer alleged read really in the making and still competing winning. Everything's going to be exciting for her. Not only US I think but for the series for the other drivers going to bring a huge spotlight to that race and all the individuals that are part of that series so it's going to be fun weekend. It's tough race to win. It's going to be wild. The finishes are always brutal for drivers. It's been for us in the past but we're just glad to be part of a shoutout to Michael McDowell today. Oh my gosh kidney stone comes back and qualifies twenties this car that is incredible incredible. We hope you've enjoyed this fan Friday. We will see you tomorrow for more coverage here from the Robo Charlotte Motor speedway.

Justin Allgaier Kansas Preview

"This is the final weekly suturing. The latest NASCAR racing news driver interviews rate freeview opinions discussion rumors and more now here's Carrie Murphy until we Christie just coupling is talking raising that's a pretty good run for him especially with everything that's been going on here lately yeah but he's kind of played ace or whatever it is now tapered spacer ace and hey there was a race at Talladega last weekend and was there how about wild is that a good good term leads Bob Right of course without the travel right yes somehow you still get it done though that's true I think that really should probably so are you ready to talk from Nascar I mean I wasn't ready to talk about anything else yeah man I mean let's do it I mean we've been knocking out of the park lately we didn't even mentioned last week. Kyle Larson won you know we got onto a tangent and a and a bunch of other topics and yeah we completely spaced yeah I think we the the applauded okay here we go nice and smattering of applause applause there you go you gotTa talk about it Oh my gosh they they didn't talk about it I'm never listening to this show again oh please do please do toby Christie Toby Christie Dot Com. I don't know about that I think people like Bob Papa Chris would probably have a pretty good claim to that but I'll take it that's cool all right others it also went downhill but for some turned out okay yeah the survivors I guess you could call it the ones that made it to the end which yes edit either I can't I can't explain it I usually don't like anybody I know and usually nobody likes you right so I don't understand so just he's the one guy right our coast where the show is totally Christie Nascar editor from the final DOT com social media director from all things at the final lap and his own website probably the hardest working man in Nascar News it was so good they had to stretch out over two days they did that's true the rain took over after Stage one William Byron one that thing and then it went downhill from there for him it went downhill for a lot of it look at this top ten list we're going to mention here in a minute it's say Pretty Wild Top ten these are your people these people right here these are the folks that I look for when everybody else is skimming the uh-huh so ninth isn't very good now and so just to kind of button things up that's the third top ten finish the season for tiger and by the way how do you get those stats so fast well I'm awesome he's scored top ten tone the five hundred and the July Daytona race and now Talladega in the fall and Chase Elliott somehow didn't Iraq at one point yeah he anyway Justin longtime friend of the show is back on the program once again today any tall nice at length yeah you guys usually do and it's usually pretty good commerce hello that would be you I care don't even recognize the name why Ricky stenhouse junior is in the news and he's also ninth there you go Asian for whatever reason I guess he feels like you're pretty cool guy I don't get it but well yeah I mean yeah I I I think that's it we click for whatever reason I don't understand I don't underst- are your peeps yeah definitely definitely so let's let's start with ty dillon there's one right there right there at number ten and I believe isn't that like his second top ten of the season on purpose just to to rip our Buddy Justin Campus 'cause I'm sure he was sitting there waiting going on they're gonNA talk about them they're gonNA have to talk about him surely the up ten I usually look back on the twenty fifth thirtieth range and these are usually the guys that are there I mean there's a few in there that obviously are there every week but for the most part you know these are your drivers yeah had all sorts of issues and somehow he ends up eighth but if you would just pass this top ten list the car finished eleventh I don't understand that either Mondo massive big ones there were three and you could even argue the thing on the last lap is a fourth but yeah well it depends on what you can constitute a big one I mean how many cars involved concerned they all happen with like the lead car and wiped everything out behind in each time what's the deal with that I mean I don't Llegado with that car destroyed as badly as it was that's yeah it's insane there are a lot of torn up race cars at somehow ended up in the lap so I counted at least two major huge so Austin Dillon at number six yes he solid top six for him and he and his brother tie I thought there was a chance on that final restart that they would be Dan obviously the the Bowman thing was a weird block that he shouldn't have thrown after that it just looked like some possible misjudgements misjudgements yes so that's a good way to categorize it hey somewhere on this list I think we're on is this right corey joy joy with a seventh place finish that's awesome right there all right if you Tapered spacer ace somewhat he is fifth-place finish for him as big and he's looking for a ride next year still he's not signed for the thirty four car he might be in the end but winning this thing one of those two and somehow they squandered their opportunity but they still finished top ten both of them but man they should have been up there for the win I think Michael Mcdowell their number five he's currently ride lists for next season where will the musical chairs and Eric All Merola at number four and then you've got the Denny Hamlin at number three who looked like he might have win one foot of the start Finish Line Newman and Blaney and it was the number twelve car up Laney picking up the W let's hear from Ryan from our trouble yesterday something there on that that final lap but it was not to be and where he came from is beyond me because he was in one of those early crashes and kind of laid back there today waited for his time a spinning coming onto pit road leading the race obviously that's something you WanNa forget right I mean you you learn what to do better next time you want to forget about that you know I feel like all the other speedway races this year we've got collected in someone else's mess you know and and none of our doing a lot of guys had that happened to them today it's just the way this get to the bottom and the lead you know runs coming from somewhere and the the eleven had had a great recovery day and was pushing the six pretty hard and very extremely hard and these cars the bumpers don't connect well and the springs are so stiff that it's easy to turn cars to the right and you saw a lot of that I just wanted to know where to go the just a wild race and that comes from people pushing really hard you know literally that's what people got turned from people pushing beat racing goes but today we were we were able to be in our spot to see the wreck happened and miss it which has not been the case this year for us we've always been given at the end of the race and Ryan Blaney we'll talk a air bubbles rex lanes runs and lack of domination has no air bubble to kind of push the leader Fronts mm-hmm well Matt Roush Fenway Racing Car Watch better than anybody anticipated at this point in the season and still made the playoffs that's impressive was very close to advancing to this I'm sure wow how about blaney though I mean he was not taken any of newman stuff going door to door some say he went below the other line but I don't know I around and had he done so and had this run on top of it and possibly win who knows what would have happened with him but what if yeah maybe if that happened and this happened happened today I think that was pretty much every car's getting getting kind of side swiped the rear bumpers but Tom Luckily we were to make it through those and then capitalize on the opportunities Oh yeah I mean that was a pretty pretty gutsy performance by the six car wasn't it I guess but he's still winless he is still win this I will give you that but man he has really I know we let a little bit I didn't really think about that but it wasn't no one dominating this race you know I mean I think you can look back at this whole race and there wasn't anyone with a dominantly to keep drivers from trying to cut each other off going into these turns I get that we've had a lot of safety innovations though since that day and I think we're at the point now where I don't want to say the line and and that was really the difference was the moves that he made with those guys coming on the outside I'm sure you somehow WanNa go back in talk about Ryan Newman I passes there were there probably a lot and you know yeah a little bit more than I like see whether you're just going to have those what people were pushing really hard like they did today but I saw go below the line so I will say that yes so what was I mean why is that different why was that yellow line different well that's a good question I couldn't tell you I'm sure his fan base is Kinda puffing up their chests a little bit because people have been kind of down on their guy for the last couple of years and Ryan Newman's had a pretty good season all five of them are ecstatic one of of spinning to pay road but you know like I told him last night and I'm glad we got that out of the way early and we didn't damage a car in any way and we kind of know what the limits are at that point so Liane they know that he did it's just a deemed it wasn't on purpose they say that he was forced down there by Ryan Newman Y NASCAR will say he was forced down there I didn't really see him get forced down there so I can tell you nascar kind of extra judgment calls whenever they want I don't know I didn't see that myself but you know that's why you don't put judgments into into calls like this because everybody's got a different point of view who knows the I slap but I'm fine with it being gone all the way together there's too many weird judgment calls and it's not consistent and no matter when you see it so you see in the truck series race somebody does ask car was all about the help behind you the runs that you could get where you took your runs this this beaver tough nowadays with the way the cars are now one thing to watch and the finish was pretty epic so you know six closest finish in Nascar since the advent of electric timing and scoring back in ninety three you can't play different lanes you're just trying to push as hard as you can no there's a couple of instances we came up the road I able to just run the bottom and run it pretty decent in who cares already he didn't he didn't he didn't he didn't you're right but if he did it would cool but it wasn't and it isn't so here we are but still awesome run by him and the crew chief Jeremy Bowlen's breaks down break it yeah we knew we had a fast car you know you've worked lead right there so you know as unfortunate what happen we saw them coming but you know just hoping that we can play enough defense and get those separated and Ryan did a great job of kind of those got separated and and getting the run back to get by food and judging forty cars and all the parts and pieces wheels and lug nuts and and pit crew members and and Jackson all that stuff and they are able to handle that no problem but they can't have one computer watching the field to see if somebody goes to the line I mean I don't get it well they know anyone the same thing and then the cup race they do it and one they're penalized one they're not and it just throws out a bunch of question marks from fans like Hey Nascar wanting this guy to win you don't see any domination more it's probably good for the fans right I mean it's you don't have anybody leading one hundred laps of the race it's all mixing up I don't know how many green like us at facebook dot com slash the final lap like us this is the sports to save because it's never too safe but I think we're at a point now where we can relax that yellow line rule especially if it's on the last lap I think we should just throw that thing out out the window especially wasn't that guy to win what's going on here and I think just getting getting rid of the rule would solve that NASCAR has one of the most sophisticated officiating systems on the planet when it comes through he's with the the craziness that happened throughout the whole thing I'm sure it would have been great without as many cars torn up as there were but it was still really in the last couple of APPS here came in Hamlin looking like hamlet or restrictor plate tracks working his way to the front in the end it was Ryan squared couple of Ryan's coming with walk off yeah that's awesome so there you have it just an all guys coming up next on the program and we've got a whole bunch more after that on t. f. l. w. stay tuned there's no reason you know we pretty much recovered from got back tenth by the end of the stage so we knew we had a good car and just put it in behind us and move on well you know we know that once you ace yeah Blaney was last think Larson was last when the round started wasn't he that sounds about right so I mean wow wait a hit Abbas dismal of a season as we've had but yet still be up there in battling for wins every week and you know that they always say I'd rather be lucky chance for drivers to advance so the bottom for drivers after Talladega are Alex Baumann Chase Elliott Clint Boyer and William Byron Yeah and so the two guys who have you can't really ask for much more than that so blaney moves on to the next round of NASCAR's playoffs along with the Kyle Larson who now have wins in this round Kansas is coming up this weekend the last just circumstantial I mean we just found lead a little bit throughout the race and we're shuffled back to the fraud is just kind of the way things are now wow he was talking about in that one I had all kinds of topics breath and that's that's the problem the line rule I don't like it at all I understand why it was instituted two thousand and one Dale Earnhardt was killed last lap five hundred and they had to do something for safety for me yelling at the TV when you're leading I mean it's been so many times this season man I'll tell ya I do appreciate it number one first and foremost but number two decisions and I feel like our team has really done a great job of that and put us in a position to to be successful this season I don't buy into the whole media not being able to cheer for drivers that don't you ah all right so this season has kind of been ups and downs you've had opportunities but you're still kind of in the mix they're probably the hardest part you know to the winds are guys who really needed them to advance those guys that it wasn't looking very good so the fact there there is is very impressive I think Blaney was last wasn't he going into this I made the call might have been a Blaney Fan Oh good for for Blaney though for standing up for himself and not just letting newman push him around I agree I totally agree it was awesome finish it was a great and then having a night in between honesty worse you kinda dwelling on it and same with the heck did I do that I was so dumb and then you know listen a bunch of wrecks today I five and they're like hey man just keep digging right like it's it's going to turn around and when you when you see when you see that when when you know you have the respect your your I thank God for that for that ability every day so even when it's not the way that you wanted to go there's plenty of other race car drivers garage area in the truck series are in the cup series translates it's just a matter of technology changes so rapidly in the sport and our guys you know stuff that worked two weeks ago through go may not even work this week it's it's just crazy apps and just something crazy always seems to come down to the end it keeps us from being able to go to victory lane that's disappointing but on the flip side of this team especially the seventeen but everybody good any day right now I know that sounds like a dumb statement but you know for us this year it seems like when we when we've been on we're on and we have speed and we're able to run a front leader so you can kind of watch over years past and say hey this is going to happen you know X. amount of cautions and lines guys are gonna run and things like that so I think for us it's about it's about really studying Komo sports is rallied so hard everybody works hard you know we can talk about all man the guys work super hard which they do the the amount of hours that they put in season you've been to it some of the tracks before can you take those notes and bring him I know you know it was cooler earlier this year now it's hotter any of that stuff translate over racing all over the country you know whatever whatever series relative series are in that would that would love to be in the position that we've been in you know and I don't take that for granted and and you just keep is incredible but every team works hard it's when you when you're working hard and back's against the wall kind of making those those good decisions right not the not the decision making the are as funny that was actually done months and months and months ago they just was never really a formal announcement and then somebody came hey what's you know hearing rumors what's the deal and we feel like we do a good job of understanding trends of a racetrack you know yes it's hotter but but Las Vegas has some pretty key trends to them not been kind of clone away back to top and trying to get back up there and I think sometimes in my opinion that actually is better because you know the engineering side of it and how aggressive everybody has to be to kind of keep up with it that'll be said I do feel like trends definitely are important like oh no we're we're good so you know for me that's that's the support Renfrewshire and quote that we've had has been unbelievable you know the you know we we've had the helmets paint scheme on this year you know to have those brands on the car as well has been has been great you know we've had a lot of great programs with them as well so th this season his is definitely been a lot of fun representing a lot of great companies just either go to victory lane for all of them definitely now when you're you're were here in the late in the of the regular season how do you find it in yourself to you got to go to the next level now this is the time of year that you have to really perform I think for us it's been interesting because this season we the Unilever brands that we run on our car kind of some weeks you know obviously a bunch of different brands with the swamp man the the Klondike bar paint scheme as an and you're trying to make sure that I I'm a family man as much as I am racecar driver on top of it it it can be a little bit of a challenge but it's actually my next question are you doing home schooling isn't that ritual we gotta we gotta see you in and make sure that we get to get our get our interview that's right look at the schedule where's Carey he he didn't request maybe it'll be in the next next race right exactly we've as I mentioned earlier we we've kind of been behind so much that I feel like we've we've we've dug deep kind of all year there's really not been a weekend where we've is there you know I do feel like now when the seventy won the championship years ago they can't have exploited how important plant in that regard because you kind of know what to throw out what to keep hopefully and and you know sometimes you not always able to get there you still at least kind of know what's going to happen when you go through the grind mark and I have to look stuff up online it's not easy stuff a friend of ours that goes to school she actually sent my wife a a math question and she said okay can you help me decipher final land weekly on the final lap once again is just an Auger welcome back to the program as always is always good to be on it's I I feel like when we come out of the West Coast in you know at the end of the day you you you you push yourself as hard as you can bush and and whatever happens from that happens on twitter you're all set for twenty twenty yeah going to be back jared seventy racist studying the video watching onboard cameras You know looking through our notes what do we you know we know the balance we fought in the spring and we got to go and do a better job of make sure that we we don't fight that same balances this this weekend coming up so you know I think he's just circumstantial for sure but I think just being veteran in in in having some experience you're definitely helps yeah well she seems to really like it so you know it's it's going to be a work in progress we're going to have to you know make sure we stay up on it home schooling is not easy I tell people that all the time I give a lot of credits and you know when when other teams feel sorry for you then things have happened the way they have you know that that's a great thing when it's frustrating to know that he just can't I can't see no I feel like that's been the hardest part you know even even crew members on other teams that that were battling with for championship have come over and they they put their arm around you or come up with a big challenge but you know my daughter has done a fantastic job with my wife's Advantis job with it and we just gotTa keep going to keep the ball rolling for sure I look at my first graders we homeschool Wednesday Friday which for our schedule is fantastic you know we're able to travel you know my wife's able to to do home schooling we're on the road one way or the track my daughter seems really adapt who on the summer months and you're like hey we can just we can just push ourselves a little bit here but not all the way you get to the playoffs and you're like okay I gotta go back to one hundred percent sometimes hundred percents points were in so I feel like every team now has kind of adopted that we've run as hard as you can run all summer long too long stretch without off weekends and so I feel like a that's awesome I have a feeling we're GONNA get there very soon I'm not looking for those days but on the flip side of a mouse really smart so you know I think that she's definitely Get out money that black cloud but like I said I got a great team by me I'm blessed where I love to do you know I get up every morning and and I get to go drive race cars for a living so smartest effort that I've ever made in my life but in January I'm GonNa do half Marathon Disney you know for me it's been it's been fun I I did I did gold we're actually doing a joint effort so we have a Christian school that's not far from my house that they go three days a week at school I go Monday Tuesday Thursday and then then so it was it was good to know though and you as my daughter's brought homework home she's in kindergarten so you know the the homework obviously isn't quite as advanced yet but it's still pretty crazy for you know what they're learning seven hundred challenge As far as working out and and to be honest with you when I started the challenge I had no want to do any physical activity at all and when it all was said and done I was really happy with number one teaching staff in the United States you know whether that's public school private school home schooling it doesn't it doesn't matter but especially to with adding travel into it it it it it's GonNa be of this because I I don't understand it and I think her little boy is in second grade and It was quite the I I I is this one of those like impossible floor especially they're running out of things I really have enjoyed that I've always been a cyclist so getting back on the bike a lot more and do more cycling his been fantastic you know she's been trying to make sure that she she does the best she can I hear you're quite the wake border out there on the lake I do a lot of weeks I try to at least it's fawn background we ran eight hundred nine hundred a year so I feel like managing that is is is easier but it's still it's still a challenge especially when you know my daughter's school now at ashamed I am but he's got the people that they do know the answer you know and and so I think I think for me it's been great I avenue to be able to help the challenge Jimmy's a guy that I can pick up the phone and to hey what do I need to do different and if he doesn't know the answer because obviously he's he's a machines and we t. f. l. w. Anya found a place where we talk about all things Nascar my name's Kerry Murphy I'm a longtime NASCAR media member and syndicated radio host of all things the final APP has a Hendrick motorsports their training staff has been a great advocate of mind to be able to try to help Josh Lake Cook that are both I'm not great at it but you know with with the travel that we do and the rigorous schedule that we have it's nice sometimes to just relax and in kind of you know get out of the water you know when we get these play offs you know being able to Maine that is a big deal and I and I think sometimes that you know you have drivers that are really good at managing it some aren't you know my and just be out there and kind of relax do nothing makes it fun the opposite of relaxing I hear you're training for a half marathon I am had I'm not sure that that was shins that to solve or is this a legit question him I think they're actually being norman in this normal questions okay well I wouldn't have gone in great shape that have both done you know Armand's in triathlons and and so I've been asking them a lot of questions and I feel like sometimes you you got to rely on the people that are around you Komo weather results but number two just it's sparked something in me and kind of gave me a passion for some other some other avenues you know that that I'm kind of able to at that young age is pre it's pretty impressive there's been times I put a question mark on my kids a homework and just said parents don't get this either don't know the answer of sorry from any tips from Jimmy no Jimmy Jimmy is a great a great guy watch I mean you know and and the thing that all about Jimmy is if I have a question or if I have it it's been fun to land you guys are making a lot easier for US media folks on on how to prove that you guys truly are athletes because you guys are now why I'm still not to the point where really you know Kinda help moving forward and for me this has been this has been a community it's been a village it needs definitely been a a one person show it's it's been a village to kind of get me to where I'm at fifty one career starts toby I tip the cap to you you called it I did so I think this was cabinet Rainier I think a lot of people saw this coming moving to the seventeen announced a few weeks back stenhouse in case you're wondering or have been living in a cave is a two-time xfinity series champion and two cup series wins under his belt in two hundred balances for me I've never been a big lake person so legs and knees and ankles I went through some some pretty good pain in this process of trying to get myself into running we're looking at one sixty one seventy heart rate in the car averaged for three hours four hours but it's different when you when you moving different muscle groups and you're trying to trying to find those and Yeah so sorry about that Kerry that's right I'm just here waiting waiting we could have been done by now I agree we could've been eating everything could have been fine as to deal with jt hall hardy racing to drive their number thirty seven machine essentially them along without fenway or basically swapping drivers with Chris Butcher pretty good about that I remember the day when I couldn't even run a eight thirty mile in one mile When I started this challenge literally when I started John I couldn't run more than a mile thank you as always like us at facebook dot com slash they'll final lap final lap weekly is back here's your host carry Murphy and Toby Christie just Tom Daniel hammered being released from our CR kind of maybe we'll think maybe he was going to j t g doherty but it was pretty obvious long was going to be stenhouse I mean is he added appreciate it yeah sorry depending on when you're listening to this I was in the break they're working on getting a live stream of Anthony Alfredo posted to my website a couple of guys talking racing CFL w Sonya found the place where we talk about all things NASCAR names carry Mercury Longtime Nascar media member and syndicated radio host of all things the final laps co host is right there Toby Christie Nascar editor from the final half dot com and social media director from all things at the final lap as well as his own we've been having a great time I mean the problem is now mentally done and so I think you're already that before the show started so I think we're okay all right yeah you know to win them the under his belt like you said he's been a pretty competitive driver and equipment that's been kind of considered subpar so he he has an opportunity who the better driver really is now there's no hiding it at this point I guess not yeah all things being equal yeah for sure so you can definitely get both their comparisons of how they ran here and how they're in there and oh yes so hopefully we can make a few few appearances before the summer runs out what you're going to be kind of busy going for that championship so best of luck throughout the rest of the season and good luck this weekend but it's been a lot of fun it's been great it's been great to to learn it and feel like I'm definitely getting stronger at it so that's all that really matters whilst question be that hey news of the week so we got another piece of the puzzle that has been put into place as far as silly season goes ricky stenhouse junior for one year just to review it again when the new cars come out the next season south now yeah that is now what about this whole Boyer Stewart Haas thing it's not officially official but wasn't padres on the air I left the house and in kind of a mock half marathon running around and Iran about eight eight just under forty pays for for thirteen point one mile so I'm at about a nine and a half ten minute pace and not be winded and and you know but it is totally different than being in the car hurry in the car is so high I'm you know does end so you know you would imagine the you'd WanNa driver Little Heftier if he's pushing Bacon for you to believe it you know like Ryan Newman would be a perfect insight there and he's busier there then even on the show he's he's not even paying attention to what he's doing here somehow the words are coming out correctly though so I'm going to let it slide Toby Christie Dot com retract plans in the off season? Yeah we're going to again we'll do you Florida in January for the modified Dirk are nationals doesn't happen You'd imagine Cole custer would be in the forty one car next season imagine then you've got the thirty eight car that David Ragan is leaving to retire and so that's open and of course thirty four car might be open as well as McDowell's not resigned yet so it looks like front row motorsports could have some turnover there and that's you know a lot of things that is a lot of things to consider not many rides left now no the silly season Domino's are falling pretty quick here so the only things really loud racetrack not covered with somebody's name on it in Rochester says he took a different approach towards getting noticed in Nascar while I was really help elevate jt g doherty ratings equipment. Although Chris Bushy obviously has been doing a great job as well so it'll be interesting now so these popping cars will really get a really good sense of announced a Suarez kind of weight and things there which I'm hearing there could be something very soon about that as well all Merola has got that Bacon thing down man does he. He plugged that he does auto racing car open at this point not signed which was funny earlier in the season looks like we're going to three out of the cars have new drivers next season because it wasn't for whenever I I drove up the shop that with Chris Rice their colleague racing's president and we talked through everything Chris and I have a bit of a of a path oh bacon it sounds pretty good it does yeah he's he's a good pitch man I think hey over the extended series we've got to Ross chastain announcing that he's GonNa Drive fulltime for colleague racing in two thousand twenty honestly and that's honestly made it even better now that we get to work together that were were racers and and so to merge all that together with Matt colleagues become buddies with but you know he's somebody that just came in after me and was within an xfinity car winning races even though we went head to head at Phoenix Kalusha I I'm trying to get some more racing before the end of the year go on the federal auto parts modified that we've got but haven't quite gone and there's also been rumors about correlate joined the car but all that was tied to them doing a technical alliance with Stewart Haas racing which has been kinda nixed since they don't really want to buy all the upgraded looks like Clinton is in the fourteen car for next season for Stewart Haas racing and Yeah so that that should be done deal and like I said that just leaves the one it wasn't a whole lot of right things to look at you know really really late and go and get ready for the twenty nineteen season so we started from from that moment and that'll be for full-time so obviously for the xfinity series championship let's hear from us the yes it will be in the Denver ten car next year taking colleague racing join Injustice Haley after are the forty one car that Daniels warez has still not been resigned in he's saying he's close the team saying that he still has some sponsorship to iron out and in fact no the interviews don't get old no they don't unless they signed a deal between them and then well okay but I tend to not you know it was last week yeah our guest from last week there you go yeah so go ahead we didn't mention winning go ahead and yeah go ahead and listen to that back again because some all right so we got Kansas speedway on taffer this weekend more than that it is an elimination race with four drivers losing their championship hopes going up in smoke as soon as that checkered flag falls the bottom four like we mentioned at Talladega Alex Bowman Chase Elliott Clint Boyer and William Shen is an agricultural company you know and they they WanNa we wanted to sell more produce want people to buy more produce and live a healthier life you know just coming in I wasn't on the path of of some other guys there's no no hiding it right Toyota Line of Defense on it yeah Pakuris has already announced he's got sources saying it's done deal which that's good enough for me and fifth packers is reporting it I'm down with that too so trunk that could be in a nascar but I was working on the business side even harder where most people only knew that I was the watermelon guy they didn't really know my name or who I was Erin Joy Llegado and Brad Kazlauskas not exactly safe either though they are eighteen and sixteen points just inside the top eight yeah which all it would take is one really as the second fulltime driver it was pretty apparent to me pretty early on this year that this is somewhere that you could have a home at they took me in whenever stage and when really bad stage by one of those guys outside and one of those guys inside and that would really change things up pretty quickly and that's how you can get a really quick I all day long in Kansas and this could lead to somebody making a mistake as well which would be pretty fun an interesting the pressure is on it is this is what it's all about man you've raised all I'm working on you know every day more more partners and building those relationships with people to vote you know fill out our season we don't want this ten car bacon salesman when she does with his Oscar Mayer stuff but for whatever reason I still feel as genuine with Eric hourly I feel like he really loves Bacon and when he mentions it I'm like me and you know what I want the good ones make it you know you look at Air Joel came in a little bit after me and blue by me and his rise to the top is somebody that I've got the no now and and art you had a pretty quick landing though so he was backing wheels pretty quick they did it was pretty interesting that was one of the weirder flips I've ever seen it didn't land on anybody and impressively eh just kept going it was fine yep so Kansas this weekend is bad fast in the top ten fastest race tracks I'm not sure what that stat even means because there's not too many racetracks to begin with I mean there's twenty two or three right so you're in the top half the top half of fast racetracks exactly drivers those gone I showed that to my son he's like it looks like a toy and it really does when they flip and fly like that you don't expect something that heavy to be flying here well and about the other than I was the watermelon farmer and that was because we worked so hard on the PR in the business is to make people remember me for something different and I I I could not be Sadder Cup race two hundred sixty seven laps four hundred miles stages weigh in at eighty one sixty and to sixty seven last year's winner chase Elliott I don't and there you go Mr Watermelon there is the watermelon man it's pretty awesome our guest from a couple of weeks back I think it was and it is or maybe it was last week I think it was sure Eric I'm role is GONNA be back it wasn't for sure boy an indefinite wasn't sure about Suarez right now to those three have been reassigned to it looks like as long as the boyer deal is ago and my son asked when it's flying they control it I'm like no it's not plain just hoping that when you took off it was pointed in the direction they were something's not going to her think I don't remember I don't think that's that's not right Oh do they mow it yeah I think I don't think big we'll go with it they do they have to dodge it season-long it comes down to this I know there's still a long way to go in these playoffs but for these guys this is where their playoffs can either continue or end as there's a lot of pressure on the line I have to dodge rows and rows of wheat and corn growing on the track in between the cracks and stuff it makes for interesting racing it's every year it's it's the nutrient solution that's everything made sense so we've been working on getting this together for a while now thank everybody for their patients in announcing we wanted to do with the Kansas actually it should be like drivers dodging corn at Kansas. Yeah with a K. Corner with a K. right exactly we begin with Ryan Blaney who has three top-five shoplifting of spots inside the the cutoff there or if somebody wins from the bottom for definitely that happens that's a game changer that's an automatic berth into the into the playoffs way WanNa do it you know above board and I WANNA thank everybody for that you know getting our our first win together this year with big nuture neck solutions being on the car for twenty three races Jimmy Johnson he's got three wins nine top fives eighteen top tens three polls and his average finish is altman is set a set plan and and he comes from those guys come from the midgets and then they come into trucks and and straight up to the affinity and cup cars in two thousand thirteen and and he deeply on a late run to the finish I guess it's the beginning of my stuff went out and make like I was trying to be in the most dependent that's true yeah that's true so it's one and a half miles in length banking up to twenty degrees front stretch twenty six eighty five feet backstretch twenty two zero seven so not equidistant check out all of the corn dodging action Kansas speedway Sunday two thirty PM EASTERN ON NBC being being being Drivers Doing Dandy at the winner earlier this year was Bratkowski so he needs to get it done there's two guys right there that both need to get it done so this could be big for either one of them if they can repeat those performances oh I mean if you're Llegado Anka's allows you guys wins money y'all are going to be out and if one of these other guys has a really good couple stages you're in a pressure pack situation for the last one driver added bonus driver again we gotta do the bonus driver because you know we if we do the top five all the time it gets kind of boring so this week's bonus driver is I love and I thrive on the fact that people might not know my name but they know watermelon on the watermelon farmer and I mean there's no hiding it nutrient actually holds I don't have a time line I personally know that I would like every day that I can before I'm I need to me higher in every category at this track than any of the top five in championship points his average finishes ten point three so that's why he is this week's bonus driver Ryan of course it's flying fast and furious at this point yeah Jimmy Johnson recently why you give me one of the best drivers in the sport but I'm sure there's probably reason one win six five ten top tens and average finish of sixteen point nine well it's because we have a super special bonus so he does have more wins more top more better average fish all those things are better than everybody we just mentioned that's impressive and now it's time for a Jimmy Johnson Ball you've asked too many timely questions right now like man you're everything your your lead US merge for his team of it I'd never leave here there on the ally bank inking a long term contract with the forty eight car very very excited that ally has signed this extension with Hendrick right now too so this is a very important race they're not gonna be able to lay back waiting for something to happen like a lot of guys we're doing at Talladega you're going to be up in the mix you're going to be trying to be the top we'll usually start in the spring of the year the contract would end so based on past experience I would say that probably spring next year is here's here's two wins this race track eight top five nine top tens two poles and average finish fourteen point two and you can take the next one to Kyle Busch I don't know five ten pounds a poll and an average finish of fifteen dot one how about Kyle Larson the winter a couple of weeks ago Dover he has three top fives five top tens and average of sixteen point six have Denny Hamlin who's going to win six top five seven top tens at an average finish of fifteen point seven how about Martin Church junior he's the guy who has been kind of dominant on mile and a half tracks over the last three years any time I've been there and done like a road course it helps with with a more elevation kind of things and stuff like that the decision a lot of things to look out with the Gen seven car coming the way our team's performing and what we're building helps helps me out so yeah it's I don't know we should be good hopefully you never really know what to expect to get there is like us at facebook dot com slash final lap final lap weekly getting you ready for this weekend's race my name Kerry Murphy his name but it's tough for still chevy still when Pratt Miller still developing it and trying to make it better more realistic so it's not where it needs to hey real quick friend of the show Brendan Gone did you see him fly through the air last week man I was so bummed because he had just taken the lead it was like Whoa God and then there but I love Florida see this is how we make it up to Justin Kapuscinski for not mentioning the calar someone a couple of weeks ago Dover when he did we continue with Ford

The championship is is what it's all about man. That sucks when Y'all WanNa talk about twenty one race winless streak damn sorry but Yeah well it's zero right now and hopefully zero again after we run the next race.

I think everybody went after. This is hard as we could and we don't know what's going to happen. Who knew that?

These and for Toyota to steal force Bush beat out Martin Trips Junior Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin to earn the title.

The NASCAR xfinity series championship was decided. This past past Saturday evening and homestead Miami and in back to back years tyler. RETTIG won the Ford ecoboost three hundred and the championship. This was the first time in series. History someone has done that with two different teams from the moment mean. Richard sat down last year about talking about doing something this current year. And and how much you know excitement and faith you had in my driving ability and he thought we could well before I won the championship junior sports. See you thought it could be a champion and you know did it. Last year junior motor sports but this year we did it more consistently had the most five now maybe not led the most laps but we do the top five or top ten and regular season championship and about allowed us to go through the playoffs. We just we just did we needed to do to win the championship race with it will join Mike back on the show later to discuss his championship and has moved to the Cup series. Next year with Richard childress racing Matt Grafton earning ask our Gander outdoors truck series championship. He did so without winning a race. The entire higher year on Friday Austin Hill when the forty caboose. Two hundred but kraft in came home second in earned the thirteen million ship of his career. It's an unbelievable. We'll fill in to build three and the whole group behind me can run Thoresen menards and every one of these guys build these trucks every weekend junior or just the lucky ones that I know he makes calls but at the end of the day these guys build these trucks and things phenomenal night hill. A rocket ship and they're at the end the race. I felt I could raise the. It'd be harder but at the same time I noticed lost a lot of time racing even today it was about winning the war not just this battle. You can hear more from crafting coming up in this show. Finally in silly season news the past few weeks we've been discussing General Soares's contract situation at Stewart. Haas racing over the weekend it was announced swore would not be returning to the seat of the number forty one car s hr and that Cole custer will graduate from the extended series to run full time in the vacated seat yeah I mean it's obviously your dream come true something you know.

It was just an incredible weekend and not not many better ways to top off. What was incredible year for all of us in our CR just joking enough for a lot of people put a lot of hard work into these race cars ars in the motorist to to to all the components that go into this car and make it rich show racing Chevrolet and it was special some great car? Great Team Total Group BAFFERT. And you know it just goes to show you get get people that that work hard and and enjoy chapter together that All want the same goal is just. It's just special especially the weekend had an off beginning because you only got a handful of minutes to practice the car you're able to qualify it and then race it. I know that you want as much practice time as possible. How much did that set you guys back? And and how much did you have to deviate from that. Little Bit of practice you got in which you had in the race car. I mean I'm not gonNA. Why is it totally shook up my outlook on on the event and and what I was expecting to happen? I need the rain. Chance was there but I didn't think it was. It was going to take away all of of our practice on on Friday and I was down in the dumps. I you know our colleagues fast was driving nowhere. Near what what I expected and what I was looking for in a race car so I was. I was nervous time nervous than I. I'd never been there before with with with all that was on the line but she got rolling gotten a lead in our car showed us that it was it was pretty close. Listen from there. We just worked on the first stages no probably the best thing that could have happened to us. was being down those ten laps on on older tires to competition the sitting at the end of stage. One there before it came to a close and running some of those guys back down on ten fresher tyres at homestead. I mean that that did a lot for confidence in ourselves. Car On our team and I got US pumps carry us to victory. WHO's quite a spirited battle? You had there at one point of the race with custer and I thought you exercised a lot of patience and restraint. You basically sat on that back. Bumper Youtube were running that outside lane. Pretty well were you waiting for a slip. What were you waiting for their when you were following Kohl as as long as you are well I I was waiting for for that mistake and I quickly realized? Full customer is very disciplined driver. And you know you watch him in practice all year long one of these very challenging racetracks and he doesn't slip up I He's probably the one of those drivers and expanded garage in. No Mike might be the things actually in the Cup series so I realized that he's just Kinda guy and he wasn't GonNa make that slip up. Easy wasn't allowed to make that mistake in the lead so I saw the window closing. He was starting to get more comfortable around the top of the racetrack. So I I I have to pass him. I'm going to pass him. And and you know you can make it look at one hundred ways and I told myself I was gonNA pass him but at the same time I knew the chance I was Gonna put it in the fencing passing back and they'd almost happen in but we're able to stay ahead of them and You know from there. We control our own destiny a little bit better and unfortunately you know he. He got an offense but he was. He was applying so much pressure there. At the end it was shaping up to be pretty crazy. Check with two thousand nine hundred NASCAR xfinity series champion Tyler. rettig back to back in the xfinity series now once you are celebrated as champion. You're you're moving onto the Monster Energy Nascar Cup series or what will be the premier series in NASCAR.

Then you can the name our son whatever you please. It's up or whatever it's it's your decision but if you lose that championship I get to pick and you have to live with it and honestly I was on good for it. You Know I. I wanted that. Extra pressure was already a lot on the line. I was already very heavily motivated and I said I told her. I'm like this may have been the best last worse than you could ever done. Because it's going to push me about much further to do whatever it takes and and it worked and what will your son's name be now. Oh it will be Bo Bo Bo.

Welcome back to NASCAR alive. Congratulations on becoming a three time. Champion in this series. Yes thank you thanks for having me on pretty still surreal to be honest. Well walk through the race. First before we start talking about the year that was an eventful arrays but you were in there in the mix all night long. Looks like that junior gave you a good truck to work with and everything worked out well for either Friday night. Oh yeah without a doubt. We started off the race. I'm in a little bit off the in practice. I knew I knew that they were gonNA have. We're GONNA THEY WERE GONNA be in trouble because the balance was good. I felt that we had it. Just were needed to be so when the sun went down the thing we're GONNA come right to us and Made a little bit too much. Adjustment Air Pressurized Says Kizza rain. We thought it was going to be a really loose at the beginning of the race and it wasn't at all so the first one by the Finnish for their fifth in that stage and then they're Out spayed air pressure Jesmyn and got into all of them out that crafting your two thousand nine hundred Nascar outdoors truck series champion Junior. Join your crew. Chief had a big smile on his face before he got started. I know you said you had something to work with in practice and clearly the crew chief did as well. What did you feel in the truck for those fans and listeners out there that that never driven a truck like yours? Truly what indicates to you and the crew chief that you've got something to work with It just the balance and we it wasn't I mean just not enough during the day and and then like I said earlier was during the day. This place changes from day to night a lot. Not just the handling characteristics of trucks so we thought we had the right balance and and at the end of the day and I got it. It was a white good enough to win the race that point but there was no no reason for me to race off until I I wanted to be totally honest. I had a lot more lose that the championship racing him side by side taking a chance to recognize both so at that point whenever he got next to me race refer like okay go ahead everybody. I'm GONNA sit here and write with a championship and figured out there and that's exactly what you did. We mention in your three-time champion. I'm curious what's it like running the gauntlet through this format. You know you've got the regular season and you reset then you've got a couple of rounds of eliminations and then you get to this big race where it's the highest finisher take all what's it like being a driver just trying to navigate your way through all this. You didn't win a race this year but you did have enough consistency in your truck and in your performance to get you in a position to win the championship. We've we beat them at their system. I mean if ended today I mean it was nothing him it was just. We knew what we had to do. We had the issues. We have the motor issue in Las Vegas. And then we had an issue you and Martinsville and those so many deals that they're out. We couldn't race race to win but in today we had to who raced it out stage and the way the stages work. It's tough because you have to get stage points every time and try to get MAC faith points. That's what we did do all the races and sometimes that hurts you because if some people compete out of sequence and get Out of sequence is we know attracted ish so key and we will lose track position and we would have play finisher eight place finisher but we had great points throughout the whole rate or the the Playoffville just to get us where we were. You've joined some pretty elite company. You're tied with Jack Sprague. And you're one behind Ron Hornets. Today has four titles to his credit. What's it like joining that elite company drivers that you have raised with a lot in your career? Yeah I mean it's it's awesome doing beyond just awesome too. I didn't even know until Media Day that let's break had three I. I knew that I had what I had I knew horrid ahead four and To be able to say I with sprague and one step away from hi and Ron Morte hits pretty darn sweet without it out and then today I can only say that I want them in the fact that they never want went back to back like we did you're right about Egypt's were always spread out. Have you had a chance to catch up with either one of those drivers. Since one of the title on Friday Night Hornets he he he was there he was there and he was celebrating with us and having drinks with us. And we'll junior Enron and took pictures afterwards and we were holding arteries and he told his piece habit. Four fingers happened and said boys I still got one more and you'll have a shot to go at it again and tie him next year where we go green at Daytona. Twenty twenty season. Want to give you a moment to Brag about your team and Brag about your crew and Brag about your owners Duke and Rhonda Thorson. They've been in this series for a long time and they've invested a lot of blood sweat and tears in this thing. They're great group to drive for and I would imagine that. This team is rock solid here heading in to the season and trying to get another championship next year. I'll rock solid than fully bat for sure and at the end today. I mean it's all about doing Rhonda and Menards by giving me this opportunity and I went. I remember the first time I met with the kids. The end of two thousand and told me he was gonNA build the business and the little operation that we had back in to see what it is now and he always told me. Stay okay here when race has won championships and those sometimes right thought fans crazy because there was man those about Saddam through but whenever we do one of those races win those championships that we've done it's that much sweeter to know. We went through so I can't say it enough for two Toronto but arts. I mean they've been with me for so long as well and junior and everyone of these guys that make this trump as good as it is Dr Pleasure watching this year. My my friend. We'll look forward to seeing what you got form in twenty twenty you've earned you've earned good off season. You put a lot of work into this and you're able to walk away with the biggest hardware. The series has to offer. We hope you have a great holiday. Season spent some time with the family. And we'll look forward to perhaps maybe colony home to another championship to tie you with Mr four-time around Hornets Junior. That would be pretty darn sweet without it out.

Back to my Bagley Martha back from Nascar live at the end of every season. There's a state of the sport address. WHERE NASCAR president? It goes over the season and what to expect for next season this year. Steve Phelps delivered the State of the sport address and he had some very good and interesting points to make NASCAR's ratings workshop. We're up this past year. and Steve Belts believes. That's a result from the competition on the track being better our competition right now in the intermediate tracks in the suit and the superspeedway waste I believe is the best race and we've ever seen. I'll start with myself as a fan. I love watching the type of racing that we're that we're going to see. Do I think we need to work with our industry. Goodyear are raised teams are only partners to improve overseeing on the short tracks. Do and we're going to do that in the off season for sure. The results from the competition side are working from a consumption standpoint. So if you look at the fans and what the fans are doing and how they're responding to it our ratings are up four percent. This in all of sports is down. Nine percent were plus four importantly our share is plus nine so there are fewer people who were watching television. Fewer people watching television overall so when they were watching not only did they watch more NASCAR from rating standpoint but when they were tuned in they were watching more Nascar we were taking share from someone else position for you on the subject of improving the racing at short tracks where the rules package didn't perform as well as it did on the intermediate and superspeedway tracks felt says there are steps. The engineers take we're GONNA work with our teams in order to figure out how we do that. Work their audience to figure out how we there are some levers that we can pull. Everyone knows. I'm not an engineer. I'm not gonNA play one now but you know I am. I am confident having spoken to people who are far smarter than I am in this space that there are things that we can do so NRT Our teams are And are excited about trying to partner with US figure out what that looks like helps did hint at a new sponsorship model for coming seasons different from what Monster Energy has done for the last three years I think monsters a phenomenal partner for us. They've had significant success with their sponsorship. And they're entitled but we have moved moved to a different model. I'm not GonNa get into what the announcement is but we will have some announcements and national around that new sponsorship model that were super excited anew. Cup Car is coming in twenty twenty one and there are many changes. NASCAR is working on that release looking at making more of a stock car again and possibly accost cap for teams in the future. One of the reasons. Why can't three reasons to go to this? This new new car one is to have take what is the great race and then we'll be great racing twenty twenty to create better racing man. I think this new car would do them on this next car. Another component certainly is around relevance so our OEM partners who are looking at this showroom car or the streetcar versus what our Race Car look like. It's going to be extraordinarily and we are going to put the stock back stock car and the last part of that is is to try to make sure that the costs Associated Jose with a car or not such that You're just continue to escalate the rate on that car And so Whether we you're going to have a a cost cap moving for I don't know it is not an easy thing to do. We WanNa make sure that we have competitive racing and we we want to win. The race starts one many folks and drivers to win that race as they can So lots of work to do on on what we would do Whether we would have a cost cap or not But it is something that we continue to work with our race teams on to make sure that we are having competitive race teams race teams that that are profitable their bet a lot of questions. About what the new carpet look like sound leg belt said to expect some sort of a hybrid right before a new engine that tension will have some type of electrification some hybrid. That will be part of it. I don't believe we're going to have annoyed. In fact I know what for a fact we will not have a new. Oem Unless we change our injured this engine's going to sound significantly the same as and whatever the end. Current engine is so out of the bunch of electric cars going around. And that's not what this is how it's about having a relevant engine and to our our hearts both the existing Ford Chevy until Iota as well. Whoever the new always that were looking at in some form of hybrid some electric ation is going to be marked whether it's stored engine or whatever that might be is is down the line and might dealy creating single engine package as opposed to taking choking choking reports power down his something every there are lots of other topics discussed the future?

You can now binge all ten episodes but in in case you haven't heard every episode or missed out on listening to this point here's some of the highlights of the whole series we so we visions of making it more than just a the Local run broadcast in So bill did give the go ahead and and it started from their network Mark presents the twelfth annual Daytona five hundred mile was a master at broadcaster. No question about it and he ahead had done it for long. Having radio in various ways and forced public address system Barney and that helped a lot barney hall was the voice issue most wanted to hear on Sunday afternoon. It was comforting. It was level headed occasionally. There'd be joker too but mostly it was matter of fact and really laid out not just what was happening but a great sense of why and who the personalities with us in the sport were barn is legend You know there's there's his voice is so distinct and he's he's so videon and knowledgeable eligible and just fun to listen to. You know when you think of the people on this broadcast team. Each person is so unique whether we're talking about the bag. Man and or the postman or Moody or Winston or Alex Everybody has their own unique personality. I in it's thus I think that's one reason why mix it so to be around them because you just never know what is going to happen next. Betty goes back in front. They spend their in the wall. Auty a sliding slamming all. He's coming down toward the finish line. Willie Making Peace Bill. The car knock three hundred four hundred big big on the Finish Line Pearson is Phil Rotting in.

He knew we were live and he's knew there was nothing we could do about it because we were alive he would walk up to you and turn turn your radio on your belt a different channel without you knowing it so you think something totally wrong with your quick wire in the middle of talking so you stop talking it throws the broadcast out of whack. and He'd start laughing and you reach. That community did something I think. The strength of the motor racing network is emotion. I think it's excitement and when you translate your enthusiasm. Suzy Azam to the listening fan.

I'm pretty excited about that I like multiple races and a weekend, and although it does appear, they're going with the metric system again because it's three hundred and twelve laps The names of the races are four hundred. Okay. So what the heck, what are we doing? So we're pulling a phoenix here. Okay. So we'RE NOT GONNA. Deserted daylight savings time either I guess not I just I don't get it. WHO. New Hampshire Motor, speedway was last weekend, and so let's talk about that a little bit. Okay. Sound like a plan yeah. I think that sounds about as good as the plant as any. Okay on ten to one is how we roll Tyler Radic seems to find himself a lot in this predicament seventh top ten this season. That's that's good. Yeah and he's knocking on the door of a playoff berth. At this point, he actually had to pass two of the guys he's battling for that final playoff berth in the last few laps. Jimmie. Johnson and William Byron showing that battle more than the one upfront well, as because this one was more exciting the race all day long was pretty good and there was ferocious racing up from the lead today but once we get to that final stage, the guy who won this thing just kind of pulled away. And it wasn't even close. But yeah for that tenth spot that was that was a feverish battle there and those last few laps chase Elliott notching another top ten. So that's good to see how about this guy and number eight another rookie makes it into the top ten Cole custer. That's how top ten this year Kerry I'm going to go with five. Wow, that's a lot and you know what that means. The Wind Wasn't a fluke and it means his his top ten stuff is not flukes. Yeah. So the interesting thing I wanNA bring up for people that are wandering about the rookie of the year battle. So when you look at the point standings for The way things stand currently Tadic's leading the thing by eighty eight points over custer but custer has that win which locks them into the NASCAR Cup series playoffs right Sure. So rettig right now is currently out of the playoffs by a few points if he doesn't work his way past. William. Byron to get into the playoffs co custer will lockup rookie of the year before the playoffs even really end like as soon as the playoffs start, he's the rookie of the year because it follows the driver's point standings and he gets elevated to his playoff points. Stuck with his regular season points. That's unfortunate which is weird because medics had the better season. Cole custer had the crazy wild win. And customers had a pretty decent rookie season at this point now, all of a sudden as well. I don't want to. Besmirch what he's doing. He's actually been turning things around but. It just seems like an injustice that read it could possibly not even have a chance to battle rookie of the year once the playoffs start. We've got a few races between now, and then though Oh certainly and like I said he he was he obviously understands the grabby the situation as he worked really hard for that tenth place finisher over those two guys he's battling for that last spot in the playoffs so. And the way he's performed I feel pretty good about. Running the table here, but you never know it's just kind of weird. The way things are set up. Now this guy's having a career season, Eric Merola ninth top ten not just the season. But in a row he has been on it. I don't know what has gotten into him all the sudden but Eric Umbrella for sure is getting it done I when you look at his whole career. The most top tens he's ever had in a season with seventeen back in two thousand eighteen he's already at twelve. With sixteen races to go the season and like you said, nine straight top ten into this, he can keep that on he'll have. Another he'll have twenty, eight top tens the season. So wow, we'll see if he can keep that momentum going. It's been an incredible scene for Erica Admiral nobody's really talking about much. I know he's had a lot of luck in the random draws for the poll but he's he's also backed up with really good finishes in the races. For, sure and then got mad Benedetto who's having a pretty decent season in his own, right? Yeah. He's been so so clean So methodical I know he's been caught up in a couple of incidents that weren't his fault which kind of knocking down the points things a little bit. But when he doesn't have issues aren't of his causing Matt Damon and does walking away with solid top ten finishes week in and week out I. Think Wood brothers racing is pretty happy with the performance. They've had not much to say about Kevin Harvick he's fifth joy Lugano though who's had a dismal what? Heart is fifth move on. Well, I mean for him that's if he doesn't win what's the point of even talking about him he's you know all MS speaks of the excellence between he and A top five big deal exactly. But Joy Llegado hasn't had the finish as he would like a as of late so. That's actually something to note. That is actually. So this is kind of a thing as the team penske whole. Has. been looking pretty good except for Lugano. Who was the guy who was really shining before the covid stoppage happened I mean he was he was looking like a championship favourite before that all took place but since then he'd hit a dry spell. He hasn't had a top five cents Martinsville which was are actually Texas. He had a top five. Few races ago before that it had been back in Martinsville. Race Eleven back in June, the beginning June. So it's build with a dry spell form but now his two top fives, his last three races and it looks like joy lagaras getting things turnaround. Got Martin Tricks Junior, which is. I don't know he's quietly getting things done. He is an, of course he's still dealing with that new crew chief James Small. So that'll be interesting to see how that keeps going as the season progresses but he's there even overcame that uncontrolled tire penalty on pit road. So even with Rice and bad luck on pit road they story rebound for assault third-place finish that that's pretty good. Then Hamlin led a bunch of laps look. Like he, he might have been one of the cars to beat but was not to be. He was so aggressive to throughout the day even early on I was like man, this is stage one. Why are we putting fenders bumpers? The guys only wow, this is crazy. He did win a stage. Let's not forget that he did. He was stage one You know he was aggressive all stage long but one stage one due to. Pit Strategy he was on fresh tyres than than Ryan Blaney who's looking to hold on for the stage win but. He was so aggressive in that opening stage ain't even throughout the whole day it was wild to see those top three kind battling out by shoving each other and but in putting the and each other is kind of a throwback. It was kind of weird totally totally. So let's go to victory lane now. Team, penske's Brad Keselowski I finally had to say it dominates New Hampshire leading one hundred and eighty four laps on the day. Let's hear from Brad's take and not sure why he's not his usual Brad Self. I noticed you're gonNA notice on these clips there under a minute. He doesn't sound all that thrilled usually brad goes on for three or four minutes, and we just we let them take over the show but he's he's really editing himself. So anyway, here's clip one brad after his win a great car, the great team effort. getting really good rhythm at certain points race and just of take control an absolute I felt really good You know I kind of start third year, but I kind of win where we just kind of able to take control the race and golf chef feels good I feel so good. Parliamentary. Jimmy Toys. Things go. Kind of together. So a lot of race left in the season and the. GOTCHA would love to make round of the championship. I'm dying to get. Second Championship and. We've We've been you know knock on the door the last few years. Has, Romans and some bumps and bruises but it looks like we'll have a shot at this year. I'm thrilled about that and here's has good. Isn't good enough for his number two team you know sometimes being great. Say. Good is the enemy of great and sometimes we. Now have allowed. Myself to fall into that good category and good isn't good enough. So This is a has been a really good challenge for me. It's A lot of ways removed some sacred cows, the ways I approach things. That's a good thing. the low downforce on the cars. This year I think is really clicking with me on the short tracks, which is good. and like I said just kind of removed the sacred cows from from me and my way thinking and I think that's that can be really healthy and finally we wrap Brad with he just wants to beat all the cars during a race and I guess that's that's a good strategy I would rather finish a second lose so car we Really wanted to beat the finish ninth and beat them So you know we want to beat them all and they've been good at a lot of respect they'll have them car but china-led focus on anyone team. So it's going to be thankful for the day we had today Africa team is put in and they deserve a lot of credit. She like drove a really strong race. They will get nice rhythms at certain times and like I said, dictate kind of the pace and make a difference so that really good here to break it down for us the crew chief that seemed like the weak link in the team penske Chang going into the season. is now all of a sudden destroy August. Crew chief it looks like Jimmy Boylans he's got break it down for us. down. Yeah. Obviously a great day for this Alliance Parts Mustang High. You know the strategy was fairly straightforward most of the time you had. Enough laps that you? You wanted to pit. You know we made a strategy play there early in Stage one to stay out of the COP yellow and try to run that whole stage in almost paid off. So you know it was worked out. Okay. For cin. Seem like laughter that the cautious kept falling near the fuel windows so You had to make the decision not GONNA pay here. Stay out wait a little bit longer, and now fortunately, we seem like time that pretty close and we're able to keep cycling back to the front and for a crew chief with now three wins under his belt for the season he's looking forward to the playoffs. Yeah obviously with. James Mitchell braces year and you know Bristol and enrichment of Martinsville's. I'll be playoff races and seven fifty stuff's going to play a big role in deciding this whole thing and We certainly a effort into that and Brad's really good at seven fifty stop and has been for a long time. So you know I think that you just have to keep working I take every race as a as a practice session in learn everything he can for more we did today and. The decisions. We make come in here and try to use that they. You know things all way back from Phoenix notes from Phoenix and things that we didn't have Phoenix and applied to how we came here because same time. So. You just use all the information you can get and and treat the treaty days like a a big practice session learn as much as you can. So let's take a look at the stats thirty three career wins Brad. Now he ties fireball Roberts on the all time wins list and grabs his third win of the season. That's a lot of threes. That is that is, and we are with three minutes to go in the segment. That's pretty bizarre. Wow, that is interesting. So the other interesting thing. We're GonNa talk about some things that happened that were negative for people throughout the day you talk about him tying fibro fireball. Roberts. On the all time win list. Let's talk about some of these incidents that happened throughout the day Kyle Busch has bad season continues. That was GONNA happen. Those who don't know the inside baseball side of things is when races are going on Kerry tweets text me as soon as something happens, and if Kabul hits the wall I, get a lot of. Laughing face emojis or ha-has. So, yeah that that's what happened. He hit the wall was done for the day finished dead last has not WanNa race yet this season we're now twenty races in. So that's concerning for the defending champion although he's still in playoff contention. So the fact he's still got a playoff berth right now means as long as he makes it into the tournament and anything can happen. But Man scowled a scowl on his face when he's getting carted away it looked like his dog just died he's not happy I mean you look at his teammates his teammates are pulling away and doing things that are pretty special grow up grow up. I I agree with that. But at the same time, your competitor and. He just won the championship last year he expects excellence at this point I can see where he's coming from on one side of things. But yeah on the other side of things do wish you had a little bit more respect what was going on but? We had Jimmy Johnson also carry. This is big spins after contact clint boyer no damage and what kind of Emoji did I send for that? Yeah that was. What was Clint Voyeur. He just. I didn't usually I send you an angry red faced angry emoji but this one was i. think he's an a shocked face on this time. Just the Wo- It was no is up in the. Looking up like You know whatever? Well, it wasn't a big deal. You rallied to twelfth place finish like we said he was battling for that top ten spot with todd. Can William Byron but. This is big for Jimmy because if you look at Chris Dot Com, we've got a new instant tracker that goes all the way back to nineteen eighty-eight. Jimmy Johnson now through nineteen starts this season of course, because he missed one due to cove in nine incidents on the season that means he's at point four, seven, four incidents per start this season. That's pretty high. Wow. So we mentioned anyhow take stage one bracket lousy took stage one, and of course, the chequered flag and the only reason I knew about this last thing because I saw you posting it on facebook dot com slash the final ap Matt Kenseth barely missing the inside wall after a spin I completely missed that yeah. Do that was close settled how he missed it But he didn't, he didn't get so lucky in the next few instance he had in the race, and so we talked about Jimmy Johnson's incidence. This is another big thing for Matt Kenseth. He's only been in sixteen races. This season as cal Larson ran the forty two car in the first four races of the Year Matt Kenseth and sixteen races. This season has the second most incidents in the entire series at eleven he trails only John Hundred check the rookie who has twelve incidents this season. So that's a that's a big deal there you can go Chris Dot Com by the way look at the stat section good into incidence, and you can find that there but. Yeah that's pretty big eleven instance and sixteen starts sixty eight point, eight percent of the races. That he's he's been involved in an accident. So that's pretty crazy. If you're looking to have an incident in the bedroom in a good way have you heard about Blue Dot com? I have actually they're pretty cool. They've they. They're kind of a nice Nice, nice place for people to go to. Yeah. So Blue Dot com if you're looking for some guys if you're looking for some help in the bedroom there. It's discreet.

Solid. This is the final Latte weekly. On the final lap with us today. Once again on the program Brandon Jones Kansas winner that's gotta sound pretty good. Welcome to the show man. was very good. A couple of weeks had that all weekend I'm pumped up coming into road America man it's GonNa be a pretty pretty weekend with the horses coming up absolutely. But let's get back to your win at. Kansas Let's talk about that. Restart that landed you the win as I candidate I. think you were like four rows back on that restart. Yeah Man I would have. You know re-started seven like that that I would've had a shot, but I didn't get a great restart a great launch cars a little bit. I've been struggling all day trying to get this a little bit of gripping the tire to take off when I got determined one man I used up as much as I could trying to regain some momentum and Klaus guys, you know Scott up through the center of the corner which was basically opened the door up to get. The urge you know come off turn to, and once once they're twenty, two and forty nine, we're kind of side by side Then it was game over for them. So that was just a a great great way to end the race I think we I capitalized and used up everything that that we could there. You know it's funny as I watching the replay again, the TV announcers didn't give you the time of day until you were already, they're like on his quarter panel. I went back and watch my health and I. It was. It was Kinda funny because. It was like you know I came out of nowhere. Yeah. Where where did the nineteen even come from and Yeah it was it was interesting because I was watching couple of cars got bogged up. Yeah. Bottled up and when I'm watching the broadcast and our. Third and they and they were saying, you know, maybe the twenty seven to thirty nine, we're going to beat the to capitalize and win. And it just seemed like You know there there's so much shock but I got the lead so very. Fun and cool and a good way to you know race with that with that Check, and restore the always produce some really get finished with now that said is victory lane a little bit different for you is these days without the massive amounts of media and fans around and that kind of thing it is very different. You know I'm such a Teen Gal love having my my my team guys in there with me and you know with everything going on it's on, you know unable to get them in virtually lane with us all. So yeah that that that far it Kinda hurts a little bit Today. We Still Kinda get back to the shop and we all can. Get away from the track and right a little bit there. So that's the only difference you know. There's no crazy screaming going on in the stands or anything so. Whenever. Whenever. You Win and I think the other difference that I've noticed about the fans you know we have red flag and they have things that half and we gotta come to a stop typically that the. Defense swarmed with with people and you can hear people yelling and all kinds of stuff and now that one there that. All goes away. So whatever it is a little different, it's it's almost like a like an insurance TV commercial. You know you get out and your cheer and scream and you're the only one there. Yeah exactly. It's it's weird stuff. Are you got two wins onto your belt for the season? You've got to feel pretty confident. Obviously, you're you've got a playoff berth already. So take a little more risks throughout the rest of the season this definitely, how what that Yeah. We had a string of of of racist like four in a row that just continued to to go away and So that was good to see. Finally get some feedback. Car gets them. Hug Back on our side even still show that we're able to compete for the winds and so yeah, we're we're we're staying right now. I think we can You know we can still do a couple of things that we have to. To put ourselves in position to strictly when the race playoff points are going to be so big right now to you know a lot of cars or in some playoff points. So we we definitely need to work on making sure we get as many of those as we can because wouldn't get to the to the first round here we're GonNa want as much as we can get. Yeah. You've been on our radar to to to to book you on the show for a while now, and then you had that string of bad luck I'm like Oh maybe not this week not this week. Oh Kansas. Perfect. So. What? Yeah that's definitely joy of one race as says that opens the poor up to. A, bunch of shows and they get out there a little bit absolutely. So in your view who are the guys to beat it looks like Austin Syndrich is at least in recent weeks and of course, chase briscoe with all those wins and I'm I'm gonna say Chase Briscoe going to be hard man he he's a contender for sure this year and Manson Hendrix speech to like you said he's he's been place the rights I'm here lately it seems like is really starting to you know you know be methodical and the racist God. Getting. there. So I mean there there's some there's some serious competitors even Harrison burden on our campus been wrong here he does you know a couple of wins there anything competing for for Wednesday still. So we've got a lot of competition but I think that we're definitely going to be. final four at the end of the year everything goes right? Absolutely absolutely now, series. So Fun to watch the season you mentioned all those guys It's it's really cool to see you guys battling out each and every week off weekend. Would you do to keep busy man my weakest feeling kick I've got. I've got some meetings this week. After every race we have competition meetings at the shops or over zoom and just depends just depends on which company, and so I've got some meetings this week and and you know talking about how we can get a little bit better even. So going forward I've got the truck when tomorrow with Gabi Him after running the truck races and Kansas well. So my my tilling up pretty quick. I'm going to try to get to our course go kart track around here in North Carolina and get ready for these road courses coming up So all that stuff is what what I'm GonNa be prepping for absolutely a couple of things. I want to talk to you about the the road courses are coming up like you mentioned. It's it's like Road America and Daytona road course you're prepping by go karting any I racing as well a little bit a little bit of IRA's me. But I think that you know we we get job at Toyota of replicating the tracks are are simulator that you know our drivers get their Ryan and So I think that that really helps a bunch coming into these races right now with no practice or anything we have a pretty good advantage i. feel of a most Gar most guys only gets to the track because we've just had so many. Virtual labs at the track and they do a good job of of scanning attract making it as realistic as possible. So all that stuff really helps Before we get to the track Ron with Brandon Jones you want a truck series race I don't know about a month ago or so. What's your schedule look like for that? I've got one more left this year I've got Martinsville on my schedule and just trying extent here as man I haven't been the Martinsville in a long time and It's GonNa be it's GonNa be a cool and what car cars coming back and and all that. So that's going to be my last one there with those guys. And and maybe I can get one more I called up the year with them. What are you driving at home these days I I noticed you had a tweet earlier this month you're underneath a classic car looked like a pickup truck. That's that was my great grandfather's truck, and that's been the family for a long time and To go out and have a little bit of fun with but my daily drivers I've been fortunate enough to get my hands on a new four runner and So that's GONNA run around car here lately enjoying that as much back in there. So I I I enjoy getting out with them listen fun cars and on a nice day. Go cruise around a little bit have you had a chance to drive a production suppo? I. Actually personally have not my team Harrison got one. You know really soon after they came out. And he drives it every single day. So he he enjoys it and definitely firms a lot ahead. I've had a bunch of people in the past that I've known to have the the old generation seven and stuff and that was always you know one of my favorite car growing up with fast and furious and all that you know they I think they really made that car come to life for that show and I've always always wanted to get my hands on hold on you'd think you know given what you do for a living they might be able to hook you up with a test drive. No kidding. I know that you know I'm sure eventually down the road once we once were able to go back to normal that the super has been a pace car. You know three couple of these races. So you know they all get my chance to to go right around the pace car or something one time then one. All right. So looking ahead to this weekend, it's wrote America. The place is so long I think it could take a bathroom break between laps. What's your outlook for that place? That is a big row course meal for Road Racer I'm sure they love it. I mean it's got the best of every world. You know you've got super is actions you've got slow you've got elevation changes, all kinds of stuff at that racetrack So that's a that's a fun row course, but it's challenging man I mean especially coming in there with no practice or anything I, go back to what I said before that stimulator health so much with you know, get your breakpoints back kind of looking for markers again. So Last year there I didn't have a great breakfast, but we actually ended up having a decent rate So I'm looking forward to going back every year that I come to the courses. I. Have Way more confidence you know I have way more knowledge and I did before of the place so I'm sure this time around I'll I'll be pretty prepared for it and then a bunch of detracts Daytona road course have you had a chance to do the Rolex twenty four I haven't it's GonNa be interested that would have been helpful that Would that would be big at the same time I I'm sure that those cars that run on that track are you know way beyond our cars capable of doing and that's something that I've ran into in the past with Ronin the TA to series and stuff and I think they helped so much with getting you know visibles down but it doesn't help any with you know how you drive the track you know because they're just so different markers are so heavy. They don't want to turn back after I really quick whereas you know. A card's designed for it really really makes you feel like you're Super Pan out there. So that's that that's been my experience with Brian Different series at road courses to get ready but it would be nice just to see the track for sure. Absolutely. All right, Brandon. Jones I, really appreciate the time as always time always flies with you I mean it's so fun to talk to you. It just flies by I wish we could spend the whole hour with you but the best of luck this weekend and throughout the rest of the season. Man I. Appreciate you guys taking the time to have on and look forward to the future. Like us at facebook dot com slash the final lap. Final weekly is back. Here's your host carry Murphy Toby Christie just a couple of guys talking racing. CFL W is on, you have the place where we talk about all things NASCAR name's Kerry Murphy Longtime Nascar, media member, and syndicated radio host of all things. The final lap, our co host for the show Toby Christie what Yeah Tova Chris He's an ask our editor. I almost. Possible I know I know, NASCAR EDITOR FROM THE FINAL DOT COM social media director from all things at the final APP and his own website this you can't forget he'll be simple. We make it easy for a reason. I know about you but you know I was so excited at the beginning of the year hard card arrives in the mail. So much potential ready to I am mapping out my my whole year of all the tracks I'm going to visit and talk to folks and. Things of it's SORTA wrench into things for sure my heart, my heart card is collecting dust literally although the Nice thing is booked up Vegas. Feeling we're going to have to cancel that because it's only a month probably on fortunately with things going I. However, though the important thing is where you live in a time technology wise where you and I can do the show far apart from each other not a big deal. And we can see. Exactly and we can conduct interviews through phones and stuff from long long distance as well like you did with Brandon. Jones moments ago. That was awesome by the way. Thank you. Thank you. Good to hear from him and I guess okay to hear from you. Yeah. Just you know the envelope. Just, bring it on. That's right I think it's time for you to get some interviews. I've been working hard the last two weeks I'm going to reach out to people this week to can get I. Think we'll get. Pretty interesting things hopefully some first time interviewers on the show interviewees I. Guess Yeah Yeah we all we have we had Austin. Hill. On a couple of weeks ago table that was his first time on. I can't find a history of them. You should know you did the whole history of the show. Yeah. That was a total just mess up our part. We hadn't thought about it. Apparently I just assumed he had done. Yeah. Well, news of the week you the music. Pat So looks like bubble Wallace is going to have some options moving forward in the last week we've heard that the Richard Petty motorsports now has an offer on the table that includes a partial ownership stake in the company, which is a little different for cup. Series drivers Then you've got another possibility of something from chip Ganassi racing. Baba's looking at all the possibility offers right now, of course, as as any smart person would. Team. Owner Andrew Moore Stein, which I've never heard of until now. Said quote I think Bubba is probably the most recognizable NASCAR driver now other than Richard Petty so we've got. Probably the two most recognizable names in the sport. It's a marketer's dream and quote I don't agree with that. But okay. Well I mean Bubbas definitely made some headlines. On and off the track this season. retreading. But the most recognizable I mean if you'd ask people who are not involved in the sport right now today and ask car driver you know that's currently active. You know because Dylan is not currently super active that the person that would probably come to most reminds bubble wallace because he's made so many. Headlines Right. Now he's been on national TV A lot. Yeah so I could see that possibly being somewhat true and obviously we've seen some companies coming out of woodwork now to sponsor this forty-three team. The interesting thing is I'm hearing it's ten to twenty percent ownership stake is what it looks like according to. David Smith of racing analytics so I'll see how that goes but man I the first thing that comes to mind when I hear something like that is they don't actually have enough money to pay him properly right I it so. I don't know if it's even that I think it's they're just trying to give something unique. To make him feel like, yeah, we want. We want you that badly we're willing to give you a stake in our team but as far as NASCAR teams are designed these days, they don't make much money. Is really a losing game. So, obviously, he wouldn't have to put any. To get that percentage of the company but yeah, I don't know it just doesn't. I if you have a really competitive team. The is wanting to hire you to run their car. I think at this point and Bobby Wallace's career the ownership thing is nice and it's a it's a cool gesture but I think the the team that could possibly get you better results on the track at this point in his career is what he needs to do and yeah, I, know it's a difficult decision because the forty three team has done a lot for him and his kind of gave him this platform at this point but. When you start weighing things out at this point you've you've got to get going now or or you're going to be kind of the guy that looks back go man I should have probably taken a higher tier ride right? Because the percentage of nothing is still nothing and you might as well get the higher tier ride make all that dough and then you could buy your own team if that's really something you WanNa. Do I mean even even. So at least you have a car capable of showcasing your talents. Walls obviously doesn't believe he's one of the lower in drivers in the garage area. Now these drivers do. So if you have an opportunity now your stocks rising, it's time to cash in on that and get a car that's capable of possibly put me in the top five top ten each week. Yeah. Definitely. I say put them in the forty eight because the next story is going to. Kinda you know make sense after that. Yes. Break Laskey and team penske will remain together this. This was shocking news the day after his third win of the season on Monday they announced that. They've got a contract extension for the cup series champion and three-time winner the season. Has LASCO's of earned thirty one cup series wins and thirty three X. Radio Series wins, and of course, he brought the team its I ask our championship when you on the Infinity Series title in Two Thousand Ten Also won the Cup series title for them in twenty twelve. So he's He's done a lot for them. Brad said, any team release quote I've been racing for team penske for the vast majority of my Nascar career and to continue to represent Roger Penske our partners and his organization Zach is exactly where I WANNA be We've accomplished a lot of things together over the years including winning both the cup and xfinity series championships the brickyard four, hundred, the southern five, hundred, the Coca Cola six hundred. Now, my goal is to win the Daytona Five, hundred another championship and continue building team penske into the best ask. Our team in the garage area end quote. So that's pretty big news because it was looking like it wasn't going to be Brad Kozlowski back next season they had resigned Gano they had resigned Ryan Blaney and They did a crew chief shuffle in the off season, which looked like it was that they were trying to brad the weakest link like we mentioned earlier. But he and Jerry woolens have really clicked and Brad Keselowski as he kept winning races was making it harder and harder decision to walk away from having him in the two car even with Austin centric doing so well, the Fendi series. Let's say Brad Laskey is bomb self at least one more year at team penske. Yeah that's the rumor I saw flying around as soon as this broke as it's only a one year deal. Yeah. JENNIFIER AP in pretty well with Roger Penske's organization. So I'm sure she has pretty solid info there and she's reporting it's a one year deal. So my I I have no reason to believe that it's anything other than what she says and is that not a little weird for a number of his caliber. It is but at the same time and we're in a spot where sponsors aren't really saying on the DOT. Miller lite is kind of reduced their involvement with them to one race per season. If they even come back next season, a lot of the partners they have on that car this season or partners that have been with team penske forever that they've used for Ryan blinding other guys and they've now reallocated it to. Brad Keselowski. Just to get that car through the season. So there's a lot of sponsorship stuff that has to be overcome at this point but at other three win season then we've still got racist ago he's looking pretty strong so At the same time he's making it where they can't just part ways with them. So it's very interesting. It's a it's an odd dynamic but up until Sunday's third win, which was a dominating performance hundred, eighty, four laps led their New Hampshire. Like. Maybe Brags lasky would be moving on from team penske even though they had some contract negotiations going on in the background according to Brad. Apparently, Sunday was enough to Kinda go. Okay. Let's do. Yeah. Weird stuff. Am I seeing double here on the schedule Michigan twice for this weekend? Yeah yeah we're seeing that again that's going GonNa be fun. That's that's I mean and we'll get to this in a second, but the races are going to be identical in terms of laps and miles and all that stuff. So it's it's literally like a double header. Yeah. So I don't know if they're gonNA use one race as a practice session and really put all their chips on the second race probably not. Right, but you know we'll see I mean a lot of people kind of played some games in the the first go round and this kind of stuff charlotte and we had. Pocono did this kind of thing so there are things you can do at the end of the race if you see that okay, I'm not GonNa, win this one. Let me back off and get myself in position to be on the pole for the next one and see what we can do but We'll see the most important thing for these guys though is keeping the car one piece. Because if you crash car, he started the back in a backup car and the second event so Definitely, want to keep that car intact. Kind of kind of weird keywords for the weekend include blazing fast fuel mileage five wide racing, and usually very few cautions all the last few years I don't know about that. Yeah. Yeah. It's kind of a weird thing and every now and again, like you said, fuel mileage comes into play it'll be interesting to see how with these different distances this time around how they play as well, and we don't know what the criteria would be for three hundred, twelve mile race at this track So that'll be interesting to see if maybe that falls in the middle of the fuel load. Yeah. They are definitely a shorter races so. Strategy is going to be different. Yeah. We'll have to see how it plays out. What do we got here? Two mile kind of like California only it's got some more banking in there. Eighteen degrees front stretches thirty six, hundred feedback stretch twenty to forty two right. So that's not so far. Looks Good. All, right so oh stage links are a little different here one and two are forty and then forty five, and then the final stage of course is the remainder I didn't do the math on that didn't feel like. I can do that one second. Well. Okay. Both races are three hundred, twelve miles which sound suspiciously like four hundred kilometers. And one hundred, fifty, six laps, right so. It would be seventy one laps. Yeah, that's not easy to remember. Okay. Forty, forty, five, seventy, one. Last year's winners were Kevin Harvick enjoy Llegado and I got a note on that one harvick started second in his race Lugano on the poll. So it seems like track position track position Oh and track position. Okay. Let's say some pretty important things. Definitely. Definitely. So keep that in mind Michigan on the schedule this weekend Saturday four PM Eastern on NBC, and then again at four thirty, PM EASTERN ON NBC for Sunday that say Sunday I dunno being being being. And Brandon Jones got us all set for series action earlier in the show there at Road America Saturday noon eastern on NBC ESPN and truck series there with the Cup guys at Michigan not sure when Okay I'm sure you know I think it's Friday, but I'll check it out. Okay. All right. So lots of racing I mean Jeez. We've got four races in the top three series. Yeah. It's pretty wild stuff man it's. Pretty crazy pretty crazy. Drivers mashing the gas at Michigan. Yeah okay. Why we begin with Crybaby Kyle Busch he's got to win their seven top fives twelve top tens an average finish of seventeen point five for more just horrifically bad fayssal facial expressions coming from him. Wow. You're calling it now. Oh Yeah. Okay. How about Clinton? Boy? The Guy who ran to your boy Jimmy. Johnson this past weekend and the number fourteen Stewart Haas Racing Ford. He has a win at this track to top fives twelve top tens and average fashion. Do this doesn't look very good. Eighteen point two. So why is Jimmy here now? I don't get it. Oh. He. Only has a win five top fives, thirteen top tens and his average is seventeen point to. Ryan Newman number six, roush fenway racing Ford. He's been through some crazy stuff the season, but he does have two wins this race track five top fives ten top tens and a pole average finish this track sixteen point. Oh. PULL UP A chair. This list is pretty long because toby did this one. Denny Hamlin two wins eight top fives thirteen top tens opole average finish of thirteen point eight. All you knew Jimmy Johnson included right he so far analyst we had to make this as long as possible. I guess he'd make a list no matter what he'll be building making on the list next year too. So I'm sure he will. Join Llegado number twenty two team penske Ford three win six, top five, fifteen top tens, four polls an average fresh twelve point to this is one of four drivers who has three wins this race track. That's crazy. Still go on Kevin Hart three wins thirteen top fives, nineteen top tens a pole average finish of eleven point seven, I figured since Brad Keselowski didn't go on and on and on and his interview like usual. We would pay homage to him by going on and on and on during this and not have him in the list the wall he's not in it I can't help that. Kurt Busch everyone get has here acing Chevrolet Three win seventy, five, fourteen, top ten, three polls, an average finish eighteen point three, and we finally round out the list Matt Kansas has three wins at this race track fourteen top fives, twenty tops ends Opole, and his average finish is eleven point three. That is a list right there folks up next Fantasy Nascar Michigan Style two races Rowdy Dragon is next on W.. MEKA's and I get my NASCAR. News on the final lap.

So keep on coming folks. Okay. Now let's take a look at Michigan International speedway. The first driver will look at is Joey Logano. Won last year has three wins at this track. He's got four polls at Michigan. That means if he gets clean air, he should be able to keep a pretty good lead on the field also got the second most laps lead among active drivers. And the second garble will look at his Chase Elliott He doesn't have any Michigan winds, but he's got seven top ten finishes in eight races with an average finish position, which is highest among the active drivers at seven point six. And, there's you darkhorse pick of. The number forty two, Matt Kenseth. He's also got three winds and leads the leader board and top five and ten finishes and his eleven point three average finish is second to the aforementioned chase Elliott. Matt could get it done either race this weekend. Okay so that's all I got for you this week go out there and have a great day. Mrs Rowdy Dragon until next time. All right.

And then you'll last year me just given the race away New just makes me want it really bad so to finally put together and be able to pass Christopher for the lead in open track and get the win and it it can. It can came any any better for me every time you walk in this building in the past three years you've had heartbreak and finally Lee. You win this thing like I don't think there's probably a better feeling that you could ever feel. No no I think with all the heartbreak you know oh it makes winning it feel that much greater You had I wanted seven years ago. I don't know food feel is cool. Does tonight light win. Sometimes you lose them and losing your tear ways to To really make it feel you better. I guess I don't even know you know but Last year last year is probably the worst. I've I've ever felt my life.

Because his car's still one but it just eight at me and you know I've never I've I've lost races before last lap of of lost new plenty of times but but last year basheer is terrible and it. It kept me up at night. You know for a few nights in a row in USA comeback back a year later and You know proved myself I can do it. was was specially. Now's just try not to think about it and you the last five laps that race in Qassim you start making mistakes. I was definitely thinking about it but was able to able to hold off. I think the sound bite that sticks out to me the most from from your press conference was that you came in tonight not feeling confident which you had won every single race you had been in coming into tonight. Why well I think why would be you know I want? I want Tuesday premium night. But you know you seem bell dominate in. Felt like he had some things work out for him but but he's still dominated the race of champions Tuesday and I watched the race afterwards. I I really. They didn't think we're that good. And then tonight and the poll shuffle I just I just didn't have the grip I needed and I hadn't felt it all week and Christopher starring outside front row news can be tough and then he got the lead off star. I mean I've never seen anybody get the lead. Did you from the outside pole. Start the feature size like man. We're all in trouble here is we're already per second and then in my car was getting better and better. and which was SURPRI- It's surprise. Surprise me because I felt like my car I felt like I was going to need the grip in the race. Track to have the group I needed.

That scar live and that's hall of fame has a brand new legitimate and it's called Dale Jr. Glory Road Champions at highlights eighteen of what Dale considers to be the best race cars ever to hit the racetrack. Junior chose chose the theme and selected the cars on display himself. which was something? He said he couldn't turn down. I do love to be acknowledged for the passionate. I have for the history and If you're passionate about history and the hall of fame calls and says hey can you won't be part of this. It's like it's a phone call. You know if you're a bit of a historian of the sport any involvement in the hall of fame is going to be doing is Is Awesome and in GonNa be a great experience so I'll just glad that they asked me and hope that people people appreciate what we what we created and and I feel great about it. I feel confident about it and think that it you know hopefully feel will good about it adding a lot to the experience when you come through here but you know my quest to learn more about history is like under field and and experiences like this add add to it and and improve my knowledge and so anytime you get sort of included in conversation about the history and it's an opportunity to learn and I certainly Jumped at the chance to do this. What are some of the cars on display about Richard Petty's nineteen seventy-nine Oldsmobile? Cutlass four forty. Two Rusty Wallace's nineteen eighty-nine Pontiac Grand Prix Alain Coal Weekdays Championship nineteen ninety. Two four thunderbird Dale Earnhardt's record-tying Seventh Championship nineteen ninety-four Chevy Lumina Jimmy Johnson's 2016 Chevrolet S S. When he won his seventh championship the exhibit will be available to the tour at the Nascar Hall of fame for three years? Still Junior also talked about number of other topics where we had a chance to catch up with him including all the rules changes as whereas making for this season. I think it's just going to be an exciting. You know year and especially the way. The playoffs are stacked up is going to be pretty insane. Has Rule changes has come out Recently I think people are really excited about and I'm glad that a made some changes to try to you know improve things for the short tracks and the road courses one of the more interesting changes coming in twenty twenty is in the NASCAR xfinity series and the Nascar Gander RV and outdoors truck series and it involves it stops l.. Junior said this concept isn't entirely new. I think that it'd be interesting to see how plays out we. You know. The one thing is it's not a familiar. We've seen that years ago in the truck series. So it's I guess if it was something that was completely foreign I would probably have a hard time accepting it. But it's something that we've seen before those were still great races in the truck series back when they had the brakes and so forth the choreographed caution periods and I think that we can still have exciting races. We definitely need to look at ways that we can Dan kind of curve the celery and costs to compete. You know that's one way to do it. And we'll see how that works out for for the company's going forward as for who the rookie class ask US excited to see junior says fans should keep an eye out for tyler. You know he just got real fun style gotta be a different experience for him coming into the cup series series and having to compete against the Cup guys and lot more competition deeper field. He's going to be in longer races with more adversity and more unpredictable situations situations and it really fun to watch him. Dat and I expect him to grasp an improved over the years and become very success racecar driver but those first couple of years might be a lot of fun to watch and maybe not as much fun for him but from for us to experience is he goes through the learning curve and the bumps and grads of competing in the long season that we have I like his style from it was tough as an owner. But it's very fun to watch. I Love Style and his personality. He just has a real interesting approach to racing. What what he's willing to do out on the race track and we need guys out there that are willing to sort of throw it all out there and gamble and and he seems to be one of those guys as for when he might go into? The hall of fame comes eligible for nomination this year. Always his humble self says there are more and more people who deserve to go in before him. It's not too think about it but that's far as I let myself go. I try not to get you wrapped up in it and You know there's a lot of guys that belong in the hall of fame. That probably should go in there before me so I I my my feelings about that or if I ever get in I'll be very honored. I hope that that may happen one day but I I'm certainly young enough to wait it out if I need to. And there's a lot of guys in our sport that belong in there you know. There's only so many get inducted each year and there's just so much history in our sport that should big knowledge and appreciate it and we'll be it's got to be tough coming up next woody Cain chats with AJ Almond Dinger ahead of the Rolex twenty four at Daytona and later we get a rolex twenty four preview from Kyle Ricky when it comes to weekends was wondering what to do with something exciting going on that everyone will enjoy you.

Even when I'm not in the race car and and it's kind of one of those things always feel like man if I shut my eyes and I fall asleep. That means we're probably going to be out of the race when I wake up so At least what the TV thing now. I don't really have to worry about sleeping sleeping on the NASCAR side. Chris Rice the president over at colleague. Racing said you're going to be back at least in a limited schedule with the team this year starting at Daytona is some of that calendar calendar still coming together as well or do you pretty much. What's going to happen on the community side yet? Yeah we're working on that. I think I have a a fairly good idea of what it's GonNa look like but we're still kind of piecing piecing it together and had a lot of fun with colleague Racing Matt Colleague just a great team owners just brings such a fun energy to the race track and That makes it enjoyable to to come to the race track and it's competitive equipment. What Chris Rice has really done with that team and in a short amount of time to really put it together and you know this year? I think they're going to be strong contention for for the championship with Justin Haley. An Ross chastain so you know I get to hopefully do a few races and in the third third car and that's GonNa Start Daytona and we know that Last year we crossed the line. One two three. We'll just leave it at that. That's probably the best. The little guys were fast. Yeah it's it was a one two finish for sure for the organization so That's what makes it a lot of fun. You know speedway racing. I've been pretty good at. I can't say it's the most enjoyable thing I've ever done in my life but when I went back to Daytona for the extremely of the race in July last year just realizing housing how fast the cars are how competitive and you can kinda run up front throughout the course of the race and dictate where you WANNA go. It made it probably some of the most fun. I've ever the hat on on superspeedway racing so looking forward to To get in there and February and hopefully at that point I'll have another watch Rolex watch on my hand by that point. Yeah there you go. That'd be sweet. You were talking about attitude a moment ago and that being one of the keys at colleague I know someone very close to you in the racing community. Jen Chapel your former. Pr We are representative when you were over on. The NASCAR side is going through a cancer issue right now and Boy She really is one of the folks with a real positive outlook and always smiling smiling. Always Fun to be around. What's the latest on Jin? Well I just talked to her and and she went through her. Her first treatment of Chemo and She says she feels pretty good. She's surprised on on how good she his felt so far. So that's great to hear and you know speaking about positive energy and and honestly honestly and you know I mean anybody. That's met JEN. She's the nicest person you could ever meet Just so loving so caring so beautiful and in in so many different ways and You know once you told myself and my wife Tera that she had cancer.

Unfortunately they do no matter how Tehran you are. Yeah yeah anything that we can do to help and raise money it's It only helps battle through the tough times. She's certainly Somebody that you kind of feel the whole racing community rallying around and that's that's fantastic. Before we wrap up. I wanted to talk about everybody's favourite cat Mr Tickles.

Driving for eight Vassar Sullivan in what will be the war gist class in the event the GT Daytona class. He says the opportunity to drive. The car came up thanks to an impromptu conversation at a Toyota Drivers Media Day. We had Toyota motorsports day and I talked a little bit with Townsend Bill and Scott PRUITT and a couple of those guys that have been doing it lately. Vassar obviously my team owner. You know so. I'm looking forward to the challenge. Though it's GonNa be fun I do not only have to watch out the windshield but out the rear view mirror to make sure I don't get run over over and by all the guys so we'll see how that goes Bush will drive a lexus. RCAF GT three any tested it. Two weeks ago at the war before the twenty twenty four tests days for the teams and says the test was a good opportunity to get used to the car's acceleration and breaking the the breaks breaks. Just getting used to how hard you can abuse them our cars have ABS so Kind of has its own system of being able to really push the car to its limits and it Kinda takes care of itself get into the corners Certainly overstepped that a couple times. Just trying to find where that limit is in been able to kind of fine tune where I feel like I need to be in. That's been getting hidden more consistent Each run out with lifetime and everything to being able to bring my laptop down and get a little bit quicker and then of course just working on the ability to keep the tires on the racetrack for For the entire run and and not getting too out of shape and about half of this weekend's race will be run under the lights of the speedway way which includes limited lighting in the Infield road course but that did not concern. Bush asked me if I wanted. The headlights tuned turned in a different way. So you know I I could see better at night and I'm like what do you even need the headlights for like there's plenty of light I race short-track some of them dirt when I was growing up as a kid and and there wasn't very much light that those places so Seems as though might still work. Okay Bush will have three other teammates that will share the driving duties with him over the twenty four hours including former INDYCAR standout in current team regular Jack Hawksworth the Rolex twenty four at Daytona is set to take the green flag Saturday afternoon just after one thirty PM eastern time.

The characteristics might be different but still the same mentality and just I call it in racing shape.

Postie start with you first. GimMe a driver. You're going to keep tabs on their in a new location and crew chief in a new location that you're going to keep tabs on uh-huh well well. I think when we when we talk about the the drivers that have moved around they. They've been fairly fairly staying put. I think it's the combination to me to meet the penske. Combination shift is is interesting and then I think Matt Di Benedetto five to pick a driver. That's moving somewhere matt into that. Would brother car would brother's car I think to me that's going to be fun to watch him Adapt into one of the premier cars in the sport. So I think when you look at that Manny de moving over there from the crew chiefs perspective. Uh Martin True Junior. In Col- purred have been inseparable over the last few years and highly successful James Small was the lead engineer. Sat Right next colpon Cole has gone. He's running ski resort. And so what. I'M GONNA be watching James Small the new crew chief and how that works for Martin Ex Junior. That's going going to be fascinating for sure but staying within that team within that same theme. How about Ryan Blaney now working with a championship crew chief? Todd Gordon. I'm eager to see how. Wow that pairing works out and when you talk about new faces a new places you mentioned the Benedetto moving to the wood brothers will the guy who's going to replace him. Christopher Bells move into that ninety five. I've car with support from Joe Gibbs racing among the big three moving up from the series. The Guy. I'm really kind of interested in seeing how Tyler rettig does over Richard Children's racing. He wins a championship. Junior motorsports goes over to our CR. Does the same thing. They'll junior was at the hall of fame last week talking about this very thing and was asked. What driver are you most eager eager to see how he does next year? He thought for just a second and said Tyler Radic is the guy absolutely. That's who he wants to see. Fourteen crew chief changes in the cup garage. How now one of the things that interests me is you know? Ryan Newman went over to rush fenway racing last year. Well this year Luke. Lambert has left Richard childress racing. He's go crew chief for Ryan's teammate. Chris Butcher so really you've got a couple of our CR guys that are going over. And helping with the reemergence of Rosh. Fenway way racing post he just in general row. Fenway made some hey at the end of the season last year. I think that that's going to continue. Luke Lambert's going to help with that it's good to see rush fenway on the upward trend again heading into two thousand twenty. Yeah I spent some time with Ryan out after Chili Bowl this week and I talked to him about that and he said he said okay. He's he's he's connected with Scott Graves Okay and they worked together some last year. And and I'm Chris Bush years connected with Lou clamber will Lucan Ryan and we're formerly at team. Chris worked a lot with Scott. Ryan was almost like I know my crew chief well but maybe in the case of Chris and I we may actually know the other guy a crew chief better and so to me. That's a great combination of four mines getting their arms around this project which is Nascar Cup series racing and trying to Trying to continue to kick the ball forward over at Roush fenway racing course. What's interesting about Ryan Newman? He is one of several drivers whose driving days. These are fewer ahead of him. Then they are greater we talk about all these young drivers coming up in the Cup series. You know the main story of that is the Big Three Tyler rettig Christopher Bell Cole custer coming up and it seems like posting within I would say what a handful of years or so we might see. Some drivers get a little long in the tooth and more younger drivers. There's come up into the cup series Mike you know and we run through this. In the in the NASCAR of the course of time there was petty and Pearson and those guys sat down and then rusty and Ricky Rod and those guys and and Jimmy Jimmy Johnson Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon in that era. We're fixing for another one of those shifts Jimmy Johnson. Of course we know this his finest season. Yeah these are drivers Who are forty or we'll be forty this year Jimmy Johnson? He'll be forty five this year. We know this is his last year. Kevin Harvick Ryan Newman. We've been talking about Kurt Busch. Clint Boyer Martin Ex Exchanger. This one blows me away in November Denny. Hamlin will celebrate his fortieth birthday. So what he when we look at this no longer the fresh-faced young kiss exactly Bowman River but think about the wins and the championship. Johnson Harvick Harvick Kurt Busch but a true ex. How many championships? How many wins do we have here represented in that soon to be or the forty and older crowd? Woody and a lot of the talk has been well. Who's going to replace these guys in winter? They'RE GONNA start coming into their own. Well it's going to happen when these guys leave the sport and they will over the next few years so the guys who are coming up and the younger anger guys are going to be forced into that role whether or not. They're ready for it. But if you look at the top ten points from last year Kyle Larson Finishes Sixth Gets Victory Ryan Blaney Blaney. We talked about him pairing up with todd. Gordon gotTA win finish seventh in the standings chase Elliott won three times top ten in the standings right behind him as teammates William Byron and Alex Alex Bowman. It'll be interesting to see how those guys evolve this year and start to come into their own. I think we started to see it more and more. Maybe Chase Elliott a little ahead of those others in terms of getting the winds. But I think now we're going to see it. Come more to the fore as these guys moved through this year. The last year with the current car and get ready for the next gen car the following year. One of many stories that we will cover all season long here in Two Thousand Twenty and beyond gentlemen.

This is Nascar live now back to Mike Bagley. Welcome back to NASCAR live earlier today. motorsports driver Alex Bowman stopped by the Mr In studios in Concord North Carolina. He spoke with the host of rip the fence. Dillard Welsh antilock Brunette with the fences. A weekly dirt racing podcast on M. R. N.. Dot Com. Alex Bowman is here on the fences episode seventy six Bowman of course fields cars for CJ Leery at the Chili Bowl every year and they had a very good week this tweak cj made feature and you got to be made. Is that right an awesome. Wait for you yeah I mean I guess I I was pretty disappointed with with how. Cj Ran not not in how he did just how we kinda missed it with the car. A little bit in certain situations ends and You know one thing goes wrong at Chili Bowl. It can ruin your whole week. And he jumped that start in the qualifier and the whole weeks kind of out the window from there so we go from MM starting Second in the feature to starting twelfth so he went twelve seven on a hammer down racetrack with no cautions. And then you're in the be sir. Transfer through the B today. But then you're buried in a and and you're not gonNA win from the back there against those guys so could have been better My car was evil all week. It was not much fun to drive but still had to okay week with it I think I know what all the things that I WANNA change for next year and go back and try again. I got to be crew chief if this year because my crew chief didn't he had to work. Emergency had to stay home so that's probably a lot of why. Cj Car was better than it was. Because I was the crew chief if but we still had more fun than everybody else in the building so it was pretty neat. How does the Chili Bowl compared to the Daytona five hundred? You don't have to answer it like Larson. Yeah yeah you know they're different The Daytona five hundred is is huge. Right like I remember the first time I walked out after driver Intros of the Daytona five hundred. There's just so many people like like you can't imagine engine the amount of people Chili Bowl is it. Feels like there's that many people because we're all crammed into a building obviously there's not nearly as many people but the Atmospheric Chili Bowl is obviously much more like on the competition side of things as much more laid back back You know from a fan perspective I think the Daytona five hundred great Nascar races are great but when I go to a NASCAR race. It's not at all laid laid-back. It's not like I'm here to have fun. It's I'm here to do my job I'm here to do. Everything is perfectly as I can and when I go to Chili Bowl it's like. Yeah Yeah we want to run well but like I'm here to hang out with my friends and have a good time and I enjoy working on my midgets and it's an excuse to go party with with my friends for a week. Honestly so I think that's the biggest difference is just the the level of seriousness that the competition side takes say and I'm sure like if you're coons. You're not there to party with your friends for if you're Chad boat. You're not there to party with your friends for a week but when you're me I'm on their party with my parents for a week and that's interesting though because we had bell before we went out there and he's the exact opposite you know it's like to him. You know he wants. He puts his mom not that. You don't take it seriously when you're racing. But he puts as much pressure. I think on himself to run well at that event that he probably does any NASCAR race. So it's interesting the differing perspectives. And for somebody like you. That's the only midget race. You get to run every year so you want to do well but at the same time you know you want to enjoy it to not put pressure on yourself to go out there and walk it in the show every year. Yeah for sure I mean I think I was trying to count the dirt races ever run. I think it's still less than and fifteen people forget that Iran a lot of pavement midget races. But that's a completely different deals so I just don't have a lot of APPs in a dirt midget and those fifteen races are spread out over a decade. So it's like it's really hard to go there and run well I missed hot laps. Because my throttle stuck by the time we got to the premium night. I didn't know how how bad the car was going to be to start. So it was just kind of You know your expert tried to set my expectations low enough. That I'm not going to be disappointed at the end of the night and typically for me that's like make a on my premium night. I don't want to miss that. I'd be pretty bummed which I really thought I was going to miss it after my race in the qualifier And then unlike steam main on Saturday like I was pumped to make the be man. I think. Like if you're in the the C- The beer the if you're in the C.. Oh you did something if you're in the be that's really good and if you're in a like your it's the twenty whatever best magic is in the world. It's really hard hard to do. And you've done that before I told you after our preliminary. I don't know how you do it. You know you drive those cars so so little and every time you get in one you're bad ass ask so I'm super jealous of your ability to do it because I struggled but We Have Fun Regardless Jeff Gordon. Your boss was there one one night right. Yeah Sling back whatever he was drinking. We won't confirm what he was drinking. Navy will do that in a little bit drinking Stella Stella Artois Classy. He's like he called me. He's like you better have stella in the trailer for like all right. I got you so I made. I made some people go get some selling. I knew he'd be a stellar guy to have the boss in the building. When you're raising those things it's it's really neat You know it's Kinda it's cool in the sense that like a lot of my friends that get to come like Zach was like blown away that Jeff Jeff Gordon was hanging out there. You know so it's cool for them CJ shaved a smiley face in his acts belly. And there's a video of it Zach was not sober for this And and we showed the video to Jeff Gordon and Zach was like mortified so On Jeff think of Jeff. Jeff loved it. I think yeah it was really funny so I I think just having you over the last couple of years. He's got more and more and more into dirt racing and obviously he loves KNOXVILLE nationals. And that's an event that I WANNA go check out I've never been able to go to it but It's cool to see him. I don't know that he ever fell out of love with dirt racing but like you can really tell he's fallen in love with it again And and enjoying wing it and just coming hanging out drinking some beers and having a good time.

Hi with us here on. This week's NASCAR live last week. NASCAR tested its new Gen seven race car at homestead Miami speedway. The car will roll out in competition in one year from now at Daytona International speedway and Kane has more on the results of that test even the twenty twenty season approaches. NASCAR is working on the so-called next generation car set to debut in twenty twenty one gives racing driver. Eric Jones just tested the latest version last week at homestead Miami speedway at least the third test session for the new car since last year. It's definitely a lot different. I've enjoying Ron and it's been pretty cool to be. Oh I got to do it on my own. Half and Kinda you know work with these guys and see what Scars really all about and one direction to go and what we're going to build into it so hopefully pick up some more stock doc. Washburn a little bit about the chassis. Now as setup options and see where Randa so. What's the big deal? NASCAR is made changes to its premiere series car before but this this is expected to be the most modern update this Florida's seen in decades independent suspension. Like automakers selling showrooms today along with a new body and eventually engine changes are all part of the mix according to NASCAR president. Steve Phelps three reasons to go to this new car. One is to take what is great racing. It will be great racing twenty twenty to create better race man. I think this new car will do that. this next car. Another component certainly is around relevance so our partners who are looking at the showroom car or the streetcar versus what our race car will look like it is going into extraordinary and we are going to the stock back stock and then last component of that is new to try to make sure that the cost associated with a car are not such that you're are they just continue to escalate it right on that car. Austin Dillon ran an early version of the next GEN car at Richmond. Last year and Joy llegado drove an updated version attested tested phoenix back. In December. The first thing you notice that you've really cool wheel little bigger wheel wider more mechanical graph. They Dad Awesome got interesting. His name exhaust look on To try to air out from underneath the car the abuser the back all this is great down for Car Nascar hopes to have something ready for teams this summer but remember those engine changes. We mentioned Phelps. Says those likely won't be ready for the start of the twenty twenty one season but one goal is to make NASCAR more enticing for additional manufacturers or OEM's that engine will have some type of electrification electric vacation some hybrid. That will be part of it. I don't believe we're going to have an in fact. I know for a fact we will not have new. Oem In less we change our engine and this engine's going does sound significantly the same whatever. The current engine is so run out of a bunch of electric truecar's going around. And that's not worth this vowed. It's about having a relevant engine to our partners. Both the existing four Chevy Toyota Goethe as well a whoever the new always that we're looking at some form of hybrid some form of electrification is going to be required whether it's it's stored engine or whatever that might be is down the line but you know ideally creating a single engine package as opposed to take an engine I and kind of choking the horse power town is something that I believe we will ultimately get no word yet on the next task session but NASCAR is continuing to look toward the future.

ITD: Watch NASCAR With Us! Texas, Kansas Quasi-Post-Race Show!

In The Draft Show - NASCAR Talk

1:05:21 hr | Last month

ITD: Watch NASCAR With Us! Texas, Kansas Quasi-Post-Race Show!

"Dr. Do. Great Greece. Like cal now. And welcome everyone to end the draft with Wilson, and was I'm Wilson here in Sunny Southern California and meanwhile right across the in our beautiful studio of the Dakotas version two point zero. It is when Mr Scotty was. What's going on there Bam? Just hanging out as we tape this the Kansas races on. Yes, this is actually pretty. Interesting because you, you guys are going to get to. After the fact, watch us, watch it type. It's GONNA be. It's like venue. Better. Wave way better. So and we are going to talk a little bit about Texas Austin. Dillon won. But there is something from that race that we gotta talk about Do we want to start there, too? When we start with, let's start there. Let's start there. Yeah, and and we should say at this point since the race is still technically going on. Even the While you're listening to this. It's already over that we didn't make picks for this Kansas race initially. But we made picks yesterday for Wednesday Wednesday and trust me when you hear the picture, you'll know that we obviously are making the picks after the fact because you took bowl may dull crap and I took Clint Boyer and bombers sucking up the joint tonight's. They're not not really great folks. Great move for anybody in this realm exactly so see so Texas Boston. Dylan wins the race and everybody making a big deal about it, but this was. This finish was very similar to the. The past couple of races in the sense that it was all about strategy and track position, pit, strategy and drag position. It's because we've been going to nothing but intermediate tracks. You Know Kansas Tax Kentucky and that's what it was I. Mean Kevin Harvick and Ryan Blaney Day were the fast cars. We're seeing it again tonight Ryan. Blaney Fast Car and then Dylan in those guys. They made their two tire. Stop I tyler radical. No tires I thing is what it was. Yeah Tyler Riddick went in. They look really put tires on, and then just bailed out, and then they come out up front because after they do this during that was green flags, and then the question comes out, and that locked them up at the front, and then there you go there was it was it? Congratulations Austin Dillon for your second top five of the year and second top five in the last two seasons. And but but the big thing here is what set that up in the big story, and it didn't get nearly as much as it should have, but there were a couple of headlines about it. What set this whole thing you had Kevin? Harvick and you have Ryan Blaney up at the Front Kevin. Harvick probably GonNa win this race. and. Then Quinn huff. How however says his name? During these green flag pitstops earning around grief picks I don't even know what the hell he was thinking. I don't know if he does either. He was halfway up the track and he's like Oh. Oh I bet better pit so I'm just GONNA. Break check in the middle of the goddamn track and just turned left. Down there, and he brought out the caution because of that and in the process script, two guys cars, one of those Mattie Benedetto who's having a fantastic, solid, top five top eight run. and that was ruined, and of course then it also ruined. Harvey can blame US race to because that's what flip around in the middle of the green stop a green flag pit stop cycle to put radic and Dylan up there at the front. have chance win the race. Yeah and this sparked the debate of whether or not Quinn Hav this. The one should be there and I say no no. No I mean it's A. It's one of those things we've talked about for years and and. Grey golding money is is a perfect example of this. You pay for your ride and it doesn't matter the experience you have. Nascar doesn't vet anybody. In terms of their driving skills our ability, and then this happens an also ran. WHO's there? Collecting a paycheck goes ahead and ruins, a race for really fast cars, and a I would I would say affects the end a little bit. Oh, takes a little bit more dramatic but at the same time like in the grand scheme of things I don't know what it would have happened in the long run. Things get disconnected from there. Because once you get once, you get clean air. You're pretty much taken off in Texas yeah. But I mean just a bonehead bonehead. move out of him. I? I it's funny, because before this kid came up to the ranks last year. I didn't know a damn thing about them, and I still don't know much right. Well it! It's. Really. I'm not going to see it until like fifteen seconds afterwards because the F. forementioned Mattie. D. Oh. It's into it again. man. He is not been having good luck, but he's had a fast race car. I don't know where he was twenty two in the forty eight year. Old thing we are while I was hard hit to man yeah wow. But you know with the Quin. huff thing it's really and I get it. I understand Alex Bowman was in that same position he was became racing guy, which meant that he probably was either bringing the sponsor money to the table for his ride, and he's turned out to Jimmy got caught up in that, too. He's talking about somebody who bad luck And you know. that. He probably got lost my train of thought because watching instead of thinking. It's met. It's a Alex Bowman Quinn Hof and guys who by their rights? Yeah, well I mean yes. Bowman turned out to be okay in the eighty-eight car I mean. He turned out to be playoff. Driver in the car, but for every Alex Bowman there's ten Quinn. HOFF's. Fifty enjoy. And it's really really weird because I know that auto racing is different than stick and ball sports, but you could go back to you to any other major racing league, and it works the same as the stick and ball sports. If you're not good. If you're not experienced enough, you get booed to lower series if you're not. If you can't throw a strike in majorly, benefit can't strike out guy in the bigs. You go to AAA or AA or SINGLE-A. I'm and it's the same in racing too I. Mean if you can't you know if you go out and you become a formula. One driver. And you can't score any points you have to go back to a lower series, and the the teams are like i. don't care what you're bringing to the table where he. We're spending a ton of money. To get performance, and if you're not going to give performance, you're out of here. It doesn't work that way in Nascar. Not For all the drivers for a lot of drivers it does you know Alex Bowman doesn't Pony up now in the eighty eight. He's going to get the boot. But there's a certain percentage of the drivers. It doesn't matter whether they run well or not. It doesn't matter whether they have enough experience or not, and that's weird and I mean you said it before where you know, it shouldn't just apply to drivers, it should apply the teams if teams and drivers are not good enough, not experienced stuff. They're not performing then they go back down to the xfinity series and then come back when they have experience when they're good and go ahead, and this whole thing is, it brings about the memories of Oh bike racing. Yeah, who? I guess I haven't seen it all these. But this is not that POPs up. Just know where. Out of nowhere, they're just like we're a cup team now. Like what how did that happen? I mean at least with premium and rick rare racing. They've been known and other other series in the lower divisions, but oh bike. Racing's like we have the money. We have the cars me driving. Cup Now, and I'm like. Wait a minute. How like how does NASCAR vet this? Is there any rules to it? I guess there's not I mean. Yeah, you have to get approved. But NASCARS I'm guessing not somebody, and then for the drivers have to have their quote unquote license, but I mean we've seen from these guys. It doesn't matter that much. What your experience level is there? You're probably if you've got a team owner that is gotTA legit car. They're probably going to go ahead and give you the license very rare i. mean the first one I can think in a long time was the Australian guy that for some reason for some reason. No, no, no, no, the one! This year Yeah Davison, who? For some dumb ass reason they're all going to make his debut at Talladega. That's brilliance. And Nascar said no, and that's one of the rare rare instances were NASCAR has no to a driver, and that was only know because it was Talladega. It wasn't no because he didn't have enough experience in their mind so i. it's really really weird and. I. Think it I. think that there are two reasons that are the number. One field is just two freaking big. And Slim it back. Make it thirty to thirty cars, something like that as number one and number two. The Cup series pays way too much to the teams that suck. I mean that's why. That's why you know. Some of these smaller teams don't want to go to the xfinity series because it costs money to finish top five or top ten next, but it doesn't cost nearly as much money to finish thirty fifth thirty eighth in the Cup series, but you get more money out of it like it pays as well and so they need to just cut off that money. Money down low and make the field smaller, and you won't have the Quin problem and you won't have the end of race determined by some something that shouldn't have happened like I'm not saying Clinton. Ship. Race is just the you should be in a place where he can learn and get better and not make those types of mistakes on a regular basis. He needs to learn the basics of NASCAR yeah. I, mean I it's. It's not it's. It's not like he's young. He's inexperienced. You think these things are happening. You know, but these things need to happen at a lower level them. These mistakes and I think we've mentioned last week to. These things need to happen at a lower level. Don't have it well. It's the same thing with with What's his nut and the fifteen in indy? Yeah, yeah, the brain, Brennan Pool and Know turning left into pit road, and in that whole cry, crack up there at the end of pit road anyway. Yeah, so it's a situation where you have to. You have to wonder like why. When is Nascar going to say all right? Listen All Cup guys unless you own team. You're not racing anymore in the lower divisions, and even then you're only allowed to three races. We need to make a actual feeder system for NASCAR yeah. You have to look into the future right now. And you have to get these young kids out of cup cars because. The junior hockey has a a rule in in in Canada major junior, which is a very big stepping stones to the NHL and one of the top pipelines. There it's called a an exceptional player rule and the age group a major. Your Hockey is sixteen to twenty, but if a player displays skill at age, fifteen or younger, they can get like fourteen or fifteen. They can get the a the waiver to go up and play in the major junior league with other older players, because they've displayed skill of those older players, and and the ability to get out of trouble. If they need to, so you almost have to get these. You have to put an age limit on the cup series. And I have like if it if it's a really good driver like if like William, Byron or Chase Elliott they get an exceptional role and go from there. This would limit joy Lugano, being shell-shocked as he was at Joe Gibbs racing. This will limit Quinn. Holes and Brendan pulls from being in a series. They have noticed no no real indiscernible need to be in that series right now. Except for the fact, they have money to pay for the seat. Seat right right. Yes, it's easy to figure that out. It's easy to see especially if you're only have expended the series full of xfinity series drivers who's Got Skilling? Who doesn't, but but you're absolutely right. I mean the only reason. The QUIN HAV is not out there to win a race Brennan. Pool is not out there. The win race. They know they can't win race. Their team knows it can't win a race. So why are they doing it? They're doing because they enjoy racing. That's great and they're doing it to get experience Frankly I mean that's why I'm sure that's why. Alex Bowman was doing it to get experience right. That's what the small little lower series or for the truck series. xfinity series are specifically four I mean it makes no sense for Nascar to allow these guys that they know. Don't have a shot at doing anything. Get their experience on the same field. As the guys that do or that are trying to win i. mean would be like it would be like la allowing the high school kids to come to the NBA All Star game, so they can get some experience. Playing next to you know Lebron James. It doesn't make sense, but yet that's what happens on a weekly basis in Nascar. It's weird is really weird yeah? It's it's like fantasy camp, but it's real. Real lives are at stake. That's the thing too i. mean you know if you did that the NBA? We have what crappy guy on the floor right, but here I mean dudes Iraq in. People are hitting each other so. It's really really strange and I you know the weirdest part about it is that NASCAR is kind of sidestepping the issue. NASCAR VP of it wasn't me. Scott Miller said that it was quote. A racing incident knob. They were going to chat with Quinn Hof before tonight's race and you know. Maybe they did. Maybe they didn't put. It wasn't a racing incident. I mean he's always. Yet people make mistakes, and but but let's face. It Denny Hamlin in making that mistake for a reason. You know here's here's the mistake. Trying to go force yourself up the middle and go three wide when there's no room, right? That's that's Erin judgment. trying you know trying to go the high side when your car can't stick. Did you see that thirty seven thing? No it I just I. Just see this flaming moly. You gotTa See. That was a hit in hidden half right there, man, speaking speaking of the take all the regular guys out of the series to. Thing. Each other may increase unhappy. He is upset. As he gets out of his car, good see me out of his car. Yeah, it is because that was. His former teammate turned him oh. Really Chris Boucher. Boucher Yeah but anyway. This is bad for us because we lose train of thought I, know exactly where he is pissed his knee then especially, it's worse. It's I'm seeing it ahead like after you're seeing it. Back to? The the task at hand the Texas race, and and not allowing guys on track because it I don't know Nascar won't do anything, but I don't think they will I. Don't think they'll do anything about it I. Think they should, but I don't think they will. Bush just all went up. SEE WHAT SIDEWAY CRAP YEAH! It was hard hit as a hard hit and I. Don't know if it was avoidable or not. It looks like he was going low and then. Newman Hook Suarez. Everybody down and then. The tail, end and just yeah, I mean yeah. He was probably just upset because the circumstance there. Yeah, because he was the, he was the innocent. Man for sure. Wow Ma'am hope hopefully his his underway. Is that look like? It probably does while also also got breaking news about Quinn hope they actually did talk Quinn, half earlier actually modified his car to have a blinker on it, so that's good for the rest of the. Put It on. His hand a little bit. So. There in the end you need. You need to have a baseball league system in order to have this thing be anything in the future. Anti get guys not not burn guys out so young, and not get their confidence Solo, and I pretty much taint them because you gotta think like Dale Jr. had a for Alex Bowman to stay with the team in an RND role right for Christ's sake it because of the kids performance on the tracks so to to get these kids soiled before they even hit any kind of a big time That's that's unfair to them. I think it's unfair of the teams to do that, but it's also the bed they make. Make true, right? It's the bed that they decide. You know what a rather than try to work my way up when it's going to be hard improved myself I got the cash money straight cash homey so I'm going to do it which I can't blame if I had straight cash homey I do it to. You know it's like it's like. If I had the money to I, would I would. We would find a way to put this show on radio. And the exactly what, but if you want to be in the car and you had enough money, they you could do it like you literally do it I listen I played NASCAR heat for. Back on the computer when before it sucked. So like that was that was all my issue, son. Yeah you could, you could literally do it. I if you had the cash, and that's the strange weird part about it, and you're right. It's not doing anything for their careers I mean because like you said you know Alex Bowman. And that's really could be the big argument on the other side, but. Like you just pointed out? That's because junior vouched form. If junior handle vouch forum, he'd still probably be kicking around in those cars. You know even be in Nascar anymore, and some of those other drivers, including quint huff could be as talented as Alex Bowman, but all we're ever going to be left with the impression that they suck because they're in a car. That literally will do them no good. You need development. You need development need develop late. If there's nothing, there's nothing wrong with being in the xfinity series for years while you get your legs about. Exactly I don't. I don't understand why. The onus about it, and that the and that's when NASCAR as governing body. Not Making the purses more attractive to teams to stay in the xfinity division and that's on them pushing everything to the cup, because the cups in dire straits right. Sure, that's great, but at the same time lets you gotta take everything to savvy. You gotta take care from trucks all the way up to cup like you can't. You can't skimp on anything else. As a bad bad look, brother and I absolutely don't see the problem with twenty, four, a twenty six, or even like say a thirty car field to be able to to help facilitate. Yeah. There's no problem with that. It's not hurting. Just as strong because all you have are the cars with the major sponsors. Anyway, those other sponsors that are I mean we're going to talk a little bit later about about what was happening. This race guaranteed rate on the six car while that's six car page construction page construction on the fifty one, which joey gays in this race page construction is not been seeing. Their hood is not been seen. Seen in this race, and but if they were in if that entire team was in the xfinity series, it will cost the sponsor less money, and they get visibility for it absolutely, so it's not hurting anything by by shifting that way and limiting the field and limiting who can come up to the cup series. Make it the best because it's supposed to be the best of the best supposed to Again, it's the whole thing of you want to. Hat you need to have a relegation promotion kind of situation. You have to be like all right. If you're in this bottom area here, we have to relegate you, but if you are in the top area here in the Xfinity, you get you get moved up right right? Make make it more like. And you have to make the rules more similar between the xfinity and the Cup series. If you're going to do that with teams for new drivers, not a big deal, but if you're gonNA deal with teams, yeah, you have to make the. Rules a little bit closer because you don't want. Have you know xfinity team? After we toll everything to be able to do the cup cars put. That's possible. It's possible to do that once you do, is you? You limit the power of the cars by restricting the engines, the same engines for everybody just restrict the power for one for the other there. You go done finish. Ipso facto. Yeah, bring the same car out to the cup race. Tick the restrictor off off, you go. We did. The ratings Texas interesting. The ratings for Texas weren't too bad, even though they were technically very very low two point two point seven three million people watched on Sunday that was the lowest number ever for Texas race, but you have to understand it's only the second time ever that a Texas race was shown on cable network as opposed to the big network, and that's that's the difference in the numbers right there. and it was almost as watched. S Ones. Best number was just a little while back two point nine, three million at Bristol, and this was two point seven three. So is really I. mean basically it's the second most watched cable race of the year and up from NBC's first-rate Chicago Soldiers two point four million so there you go. Not, bad didn't terrible. also at his first win since Daytona two thousand eighteen. And I will I will give you I. Give You, so. He got a top five earlier this year Darlington Oh. Daddy in the in the in the reboot. Okay, so he's got two top. Fives and less to seize Gotcha prior to that, so the last time he got a tough I was the twenty eighteen season. Wow, it was. What when do you think it was? Oh, man, we'll obviously in Daytona finished first, but he probably had a top five after that. Was it like? Was it like July, Daytona. It was August Michigan Oh. especially. When there you go so good on Austin Dillon. Is Everyone thinks oh? He's a bad ass now because he won and. Bad for a silver spoon kit night. He's still I. Know lucked out breaking. Comment pissed me off for two reasons number one. It's been forever in a day since he's one and number two. It was only because of Quin huff that he on. And let's be honest Yeah, you didn't earn. That's brother. Yeah! He didn't race his way up to the front. He I mean not to take anything away from me still in the playoffs, but don't turn around and be cocky about it. When you didn't racial way to the front, it was handed to you and then you did very good job over the past couple over the last three laps of keeping it. Didn't bleep it up. You do the bare minimum the sale. And, even then you almost botched right exactly. Tyler Rettig God his best cup finish ever. He's seventeen points despite the second place finish but man I mean he's just. He's brought the entire level of that organization up I think. Yeah. It's it's amazing when he's been able to do. in that car and you almost like maybe Daniel Hamrick wasn't the option. Maybe maybe maybe we have to run that one back. I mean they. They certainly made me forget about him and it. was a fantastic choice I mean it's first time we've seen a really good rookie. Since Chase Elliott came up. and Jan Chase Elliott was first. We saw really long time. Yeah, pretty much. Yeah, so so good on them. and we'll talk a little bit more about children's here in a second because the technology NBC's making big huge deal about this whole thing. but let's run through some NASCAR news. Real quick Clint Boyer Looking for a contract extension with S HR says he wants to retire there. I mean I don't. I. Don't know I think because he's boys with with Tony I think he'll probably be able to raise her pretty much as long as you want. Don't you think I think so? Yeah? I mean it it's. One of those deals where well? Because the system they got rid occurred got rid of You know they. They got rid of Suarez too. And so it's not like they're. You know afraid to get rid of a driver if they're not happy with Megan. not yet I. Don't think K I don't know for some reason I thought they Degan, was Oh i. know who they got. Case I. Oh, sure, yeah, well, of course yet. That could change things right there could. And that and that might be. Why haven't signed yet? Think, it's. It's really a thing Briscoe at this point because briscoes having. BRISCOE having a year. Yeah, yeah, yes, I, mean season, and you almost have to be like. Well, what do we do and we do? We part with with Boyer. Do, do we have to wait 'til Amarolis stuff. Amaral has been racing really well, and he's got the sponsorship come in with him to exactly Harvick's nailed down for life Called customers, the CO owner son. Yeah, so and Boyer is pretty much odd man out. That might be wise, not signed yet exactly so I mean. It it's one of those deals where you either lose chased Briscoe or do a satellite deal. Yeah! I mean they could do that for a year with Briscoe, but they're going to have to get him on the big big at the big kids table or else he's going to bolt, and they're gonNa wish that they had done things differently. Because Briscoe is now just kicking ass in xfinity. He's kicking US specifically with the intent of getting to the Cup series so I if he's making it, so you can't avoid. Oh, totally! Yeah, you cannot say all right well. You know, but still though like you're not this that the other. I think the performance is going to be a big deal and right now Clinton, not hacking it and Alma. has this way man of just being good enough to hang on to get in the playoffs and that that could be the deciding factor right there? I don't know what I. Contract status is right now, but but yeah, that's probably a big big reason why Clinton hasn't resigned as of yet. Qualify so they're not going to qualifying for the rest of the year now no practice, no qualifying rest of the year I. Thing I think that this is not because. Nascar I think that it's very loosely based on the idea of safety very loosely. Because let's face it. They've had racist not tonight at Kansas, but they've had braces where they've had fans and they're like. Oh, it's okay for the FA. How is it all right for the house? It all right for everybody to show up at the track. All the cup guys shop at the track. and run a race. But. It's somehow massively risky for them to qualify. Do Practice. It's not like it's the same thing like him. They're all inside. If somebody is sick and it's GonNa make everybody else sick. They've got just as much of a chance of doing it right now. While the race is going on, they do in practice or qualifying. So I think that there I think this is a test for them to see if they can do this on a more permanent basis to reduce costs for teams. Oh yeah, absolutely. I think it was This is definitely something where you realize you don't need. Qualifying like this is fine or practice for that matter to the only downside. Is You talk about the? We're just talking about all these young drivers and I think that's critical for them. Especially in the xfinity series in the truck series be able to get some time behind the wheel. That's not in a race. You know, so you can work on the car type thing. I think that if you I think if you completely cut out. Qualifying and practice then at that point you have to rollback in that teams are allowed to have practice sessions or NASCAR holds open practice sessions at like three or four times during the year to give these kids a chance to to get their stuff together. In the words of Michael Jordan FM kids. They got learned somehow man. I mean they gotta learn. Never learn trial by fire I would have right now. It is and yeah, so because of that then obviously the playoffs become a thing, and because right now spots one through twelve draw for position, and then they go down the list from there obviously if you've got sixteen drivers in the playoffs, and you're only drawing one through twelve, and then the next set of drivers Yonne thirteen through sixteen in the playoffs could potentially start down to the twenties then they're gonNA have to modify qualifying for the first round. Where basically do random drove all the top sixteen? Yeah I think that's all you need. I think I think what you need to do is guys who are in the playoff that week get to drill. And then everyone else kinda just fills in right. Yeah, no, I think that's what they'll do. because the only really a problem for the first round but okay, so if everybody, if everybody in the playoffs is all starting up at the front, does that does that not give a huge huge advantage to the guys who have scored the most playoff points heading into the postseason because? Because, there's not a chance that like. Let's say Martin tricks a couple of years ago. When Adelaide Twenty thirty, however many points, it was playoff points. He's always starting up front, so it's really really hard for people to beat him by a lot. But isn't going to start up front with qualify anyway. Yeah, most of the time most of the time. Yes, yeah, so it does like. How big of a difference is this like? You would have to go through? You're right. There's starting positions were through the random draw versus their starting position would be in real life. I don't think there's going to be that much a difference between the two probably only a few times of during the playoffs for these guys that really happened with that take effect. So I. Don't think it does give a deal. We'll have to see but but yeah. Yeah, you're right. I mean it's not like the these are the best of the series. The probably not gonNA be qualifying thirtieth. Probably not. what else do. We got a Levine family racing apparently up for sale, so if you got some money, you want to be a driver. You some cash there. You go right there. exactly this not to get it. Get it going. It's not surprising. because. They've been floating on Gibbs money for the past couple of years. And now it's it's it's time it's time to to to set sail and know when you have to cut loose because it by the looks of that. Almost sounds as if see bells going gonNA take over Air Johnson's Jones's spot. It's well it's possible, but if somebody is an opportunity for somebody who wants a decent car I mean they're saying that. The price is somewhere between five and ten million. For the whole kit and Caboodle, but you get a charter with that, and you would presumably get to keep the partnership which agr and maybe even get a driver. If it's not, you know what could be even Eric Jones like you said I. Mean You get a decent driver? But I mean it would have to be an owner that's funded where you gonNA find an owner. That's got money to spend on NASCAR right now. You're right now. In this economy I know. In this economy. I say that is a non sequitur all the time. Literally this one means literally does I mean because you you got have more than five to ten million. You have five million and you gotta be able to run the team competitively, even with the Jj our help. You'RE GONNA. Have to put you know cars on the track and people in the in the you know haller and tires on gas and everything so. What else we got here? Oh, the the Stewart ever NAM series. Announced Their first driver yesterday Oh my God, yes. Tony non the living embodiment of VIN diesel. is going to be the official driver along with apparently Tony Stewart would which hasn't been announced, but Tony says he wants to raise it. Is there another Tony? Racing Tony Stewart Tony Kahn we gotta get any other. Tony Tony Killing of another Tony off the top of my head. No. Tony Danza as a celebrity you, you could ten then. The headline reads Tony Tony Tony Tony Tony Tony. New Series rings a bell. Amid but rumor has it. That five drivers have already been signed. Even though can on is the only one that's been announced. Oh! We don't have really rumors on. What. Those drivers are Tony Canham went on social media says the announcement came out was like I want to be part of this. And they made him part of it to other drivers have done that Greg Bill. And Sebastian Bore Day have both expressed interest on social media being part of it, so my guess is that it cannot ask and he's GonNa. Get it then probably the biff and day both champions by the way in other series in the truck series and Borden Indycar and I'm saying that I'M GONNA double. Check it. One. Busch series two. Oh, he did, didn't he? Yeah? and so I if they're asking I would think that they will probably both get in as well. For sure. I'm looking right now. He's one we did. indycar Sir no his best finish in INDYCAR was seven one champ car once. I knew he won championships before. So I wanted to champ car championship I wanted a lot. He wanted to four times. So absolutely, so he's a champ the. Champ Tony. Kanaan has won a championship Tony Stewart. Obviously he's won a championship or two in his day and so ray everything was talking about the initial. Guys and we are talking about four Johnson Gordon. Scott Dixon one problem until you Paul Tracy all of those guys who had a lot of success. so it'd be interesting to see I. I still am kind of a little bit of beat about this whole thing. Good for you. So proud of yourself. I know I think it's GonNa be fun. I I'm looking forward to I. I could not care less either way. If it gets off the ground. Awesome, I may watch it By and large, that's something that interests me, but but like I said the last time we talked about this the. That draw me to it short tracks. Short races. Small field. K You know you're relying pretty much on driver skill at that point, even though there is a bit of a slant, an advantage to the cup. Guys because it. Let's face it. Sebastian bourdais has not been doing a lot of short track racing recently. No go on. But they can prove by doing those things and making it work, they can prove the NASCAR. They should be seriously considering the same types of things shorter race I don't WanNA senior series well, and that's that is kind of what it boils down. I don't need a senior PGA. In Racing Chichi Rodriguez out there the car now we already have the truck series. I don't need this. I will take that if I can get like proof positive that short. Racist Short exciting races are more fun. Okay? I'm willing to make that trade off. Okay. I have the perfect commissioner for the series to. Oh I've the perfect the perfect leader, the perfect president perfect CEO. To run S, Rx racing, or whatever the calling is not going back to Nascar, so just say Brian France done with France, everybody. How how like I? Read this headline that Brian France was on Sirius Xm NASCAR satellite radio and was like. Oh my God why exactly and then there'd be lying need him exactly now open the article and it said that he definitively said he wasn't coming back. It's like Oh. Thank Goodness, Oh, my God. Look had a moment is put the Piss test away five. allegedly. Genuine, moment there. I was like Oh my God. No, please don't make this happen. It Steve Carell in the office. Bring Francis and coming back on. That's good. Hey, breaking news If I may please for this weekend and it's not in here I. Don't think I. Don't think no, it's not an here. Saturday night sat. You are diy night What you doing. I don't know there's block Tober concert. Sorry. Is it Saturday? Hold on. Wait a minute of you know Saturday one thirty pm Oh. That's Middle Eastern Standard Time okay. Yeah! I got nothing man what you got. Listen I think I should be tuning into. F S One a really what's on F s one and that one is the E. P.. T.

Yeah, Oh yeah, totally you know from the shores ocean city. At to the mountains FROSTBURG. Here for soon are always like Maryland. Here for. Here for Jones another climate. What's going on out there? Well, support Annapolis Boy Travis Pastrana was he racing in Saturday's race? No Way drives number four truck Bernice Moshe Boards on. How long has it been since we've seen Travis Pastrana truck? That's been a long ass time in. When was it twenty seventeen? REFINISH Twenty-second. He'll be racing the number forty niece motorsports Chevrolet which Ross chastain usually drives, but trust could be driving it for the first truck series race the weekend on Friday night, and then on Saturday afternoon Travis Pastrana jumping back in right on into their so shutout to Travis Pass Ramp. That's awesome. Shamir's UC. Man, like I said a long long time since we've seen him in a trucking them before that like to seize cinema more and more race. I was a really long time. Yeah. He drove full time in the series for Rows Fenway in twenty thirteen thirteen. Yeah. We're excited about that at the time. It was big because he wasn't too bad. When in the in the appearances, he made with Michael Waltrip racing in the ninety nine, he was doing pretty well. Firms. Yeah, and it was good in general for the sport to help bring new fans in, and it just didn't last just one away because one of those well, he got into Roush Fenway that was. Exactly, he stay. He stays with Toyota. Who knows sky's the limit for them? But there is no open rights. Right exactly so. There's that but yeah. T Travis Pastrana back in the into the race Saturday afternoon. One Thirty PM eastern time on F S One. Don't should Airbus. That's good. He only thirty six. He can still do this. Survey. Savannah Park High School. I, believe alumni wish I was still thirty six. I'm I wish I was thirty six. I mean you're older than that so I. Still Wish I was I. don't WanNa. GET OLDER! Why don't you race in the truck series as we can? WHO SAYS I'm not. That's true if you got them I. says. I'm, not. Sure I don't get the damn. The dam accolades stratas does because I'm from the Bernie. He's from Annapolis right well. It sounds a high class area NAPA less man. No, no shipments. The water's at your exactly. You, could you know what you could do? Though you could ed? All you need is cash, and then you could buy Levine WanNA. Take Clint Boyer's son Levine. The you could buy off you're. Get in this right and you're not going to see this child until I get exactly exactly, but no you. You could buy a Levine family racing them by Iowa speedway. Much as you want against. Always. Win Any watch good. Always Win Nan. Looming apparently NASCAR's thing about selling. It is what they're saying. Yeah. By the way you can buy, you can buy Iowa speedway. Because, they're canceling racism. Bunch of staff getting because of the thing And you kind of a track, you think they WANNA keep. They don't cry. It doesn't it doesn't make sense. It's a frigging short-track. Man I mean why. Sell something so the frigging any media tracking. Keep the good track. Right. Doesn't make any damn, but. It was modeled after frigging Richmond. Yeah and Richmond God so yeah. Pilot. Jimmy Jimmy Johnson back testing well, that's. Interesting thing. But you can buy Iowa, speedway. Speedway by failures sports get a car. Two for one deal. But, what if I told you? That that you could have a cold war relic. Wilson. Part of the Berlin Wall. Close. What if what if I told you? That you could, you can get forty nine. And a half acres. Of A missile silo. Of A missile site in Walsh County North Dakota build your own track on that too, and then have a missile silo as well. Yeah so you? There's an auction. For the spirit missile. Site Nice so you so in that, so it's almost fifty acres. You get you get a year. There's fourteen launch tubes pull the crap, a command bunker dual fencing, so you have the inner fence with the Outer Fence Nice entry building in the middle of nowhere North Dakota, which is pretty much anywhere outside of the three or four big cities tell yeah I know right. How how much is somebody that go for? It doesn't have a price hall do. The auction locations at the Ramada at fourteen hundred interchange avenue in Bismarck north, Dakota, and then the capital. I WANNA by that I. Mean think about all you can do there you would. You would could have paved track. You can have a dirt track, and you could live in an actual silo. You can live in the silent man. Is. It's good for what ails you. My friend when the Zombie apocalypse apocalypse comes. Exactly, you're set. You need to isolate from the rest of the world because there are some sort of Kooky pandemic that that can never happen. Though, but if it did then you'll be, you'll be safe. Just lock yourself up. And actually try. They do have prices for the lots on trying to fight here we go. So. Are you giving me. Give me a price for this lot here Fair Fair Fair Fair, Dale North Dakota, and it's probably like in the middle of nowhere so I'm gonNA guess two million. I'm not seeing any any only thing. I'm seeing here's taxes. Because three hundred eighty one dollars in taxes with the three hundred eighty one dollars in taxes. What can't be that expensive? Then right I'm thinking well. There's no inhabitants there I. don't know what your what your property taxes like there, but my gosh. Look. If you look at the pictures, it's very flooded. So the thing is, says unique opportunity to own a bit of Cold War history located in Fair Tale North Dakota. This Walsh County Spirit missile offers a nostalgic Cold War experience. Site needs repairs could provide that extra privacy, security and protection when needed. Is surrounded by fences and sits on three parcels, totaling forty nine point four eight acres. There's a cemetery. Oh, sorry, there's a cement entry. ooh, A building a command bunker fourteenth spirit launch tubes, current owner utilizes portable power and water tanks. Power is available nearby, and well could be drilled for water requirements. Property will be offered as one total unit It's got a kitchen and I was very close one point five million. One point five million bucks for what for the for the missile Oh is it yeah found has got a little dog house why I don't know. But it does. This is where let me make sure. I've got the right missile silo. That's sale information. Information I might have the wrong missile silo could. Maybe there's more than one yeah. Sure one four spirit missile sites, okay, where is this? Is Area Code Seven hundred one? Is that you guys? That's all North Dakota. There you go, yeah, then it's county is given address No contact us. Here has email. It has a phone number and zoom out here. See where it is Dresden. Near Dresden and Wales Langdon near Langdon. Yes in-between so fair. This little sites between Edmore Adams wow man like you could declare war on Canada from this site row. It is like a stone's throw away. Interesting I'm I've seen from seven thirty three? A hundred eleven avenue in Beautiful Fair Dale North Dakota Northeast. Where are we? What is the property here slammed preppy loop dot net showcase dot. COM Peiser thought. Maybe there's more than one missile saw. North Dakota was like a base in terms of just okay. Two point three six million is what IT SHOWCASE DOT COM! So you're telling me. I found another missile saying look. No, you're not, you're probably. Not Wrong Oh my God. I could see there's a ton of missile sites here. Duty you kidding. How crazy but I sail the! Economy want to miss this. Gosh Yeah. There is so many missile sites Wa. Places in here. In North Dakota. I wonder if there's a plot of land here. There's like the Ronald Reagan what the minute man missile site historical site. Wow. There's a nuclear missile bunker seventy feet below mine on. The pyramid North Dakota and Nicola North. Dakota, which was one of the big cost six billion dollars to make. It was a complex with a giant pyramid-shaped radar system. I WANNA. Buy that one. Yeah, so now it's huge man. It looks it looks like A. Looks like the Peer Oh. It is something else the giant pyramid. I've driven by there it is. A sight to behold, you should've I when I was out there. You should have told me to go by look well. It's in the middle of. Nowhere Bro. That's that's the problem. Is that all these missile sites are in the middle of nothing? I guess I. Kind of makes sense though, doesn't it? mccomb, North Dakota's in the middle of nowhere so you can spend your money on Iowa and Levine. Family racing. or or bio- by a couple of missiles missile silos for that money several missiles. Xactly, Start Your own like you could start your own country. I guess well, maybe not. Nobody would even care if you're like. Hey, I'm just starting my own country here. North Dakota. Would anybody really say anything? Yeah not really like. Okay if you want to go to. Get a a number of missile. Oh, yes, so. Actually, not that far away, it's actually. West of me well, if you do not even close. So. That's less than two hours. You can get missile site tours. In Cavalier is north of May. Cooperstown Nicola in the pyramid. Yeah, there's a ton of missile silos in North Dakota. It's quite amazing actually. Looking for right now. Oh, man, I can't type. Here we go. This is fascinating programming, isn't it? It honestly is probably a little bit better than the Texas race yeah. Oh Wow check out of that pyramid. Man Can. You can walk right up to it? Yeah, did you go right up to when you were there not just drove past. Okay? Yeah, you could see it for far away. It looks like. Man. Wow Do you think that's where all the You think that's where all of the the illuminated. You think that's where they do their thing there. Could be. Go figure and so like there's because their whole thing is like a pyramid or something I think something like that I don't know. there is a ton of missile squadrons in north. Dakota, that's crazy from turtle, Lake to rider. To Max, that's why I don't know why. There's so many Goddamn missile. Because land I guess why more than what is free. Mostly because I think. The Russians wouldn't think look in North Dakota. They're like. Part of United States, so they didn't even know. It was the evening that the state even existed to look there for I love the highlights for this land on showcase dot, com, fancier fence around property with five foot, woven wire with gate, own sewer, system and lagoon eight-foot Shane links inside man cave three. We finance with ten percent down. Of course they do who does her? Why wouldn't you? A man. and. It's got a bad case. Yeah like these pictures of frigging hilarious man. You have to be very self sufficient because there's. Anywhere yeah. It'd be kind of rich to I. Guess I mean? And have that kind of cash to just by some in the middle of nowhere. Because what else are you going to do with it? What else you ever GonNa do with it. And missiles don't come with it. They made sure to let you know about that. or any questions, you can get a buyer on missile I would think that you could probably start your cult. They're very easily. How creepy wouldn't thirty. Underground. Nobody knows what you're doing. You can store a lot of stuff there. It'd probably be so far away like if everything collapsed because it's so old and rusted not to give people, ideas or anything. Just say. It'd be cool to have I'd rather be in the pyramid. then. This bullet with the pyramid looks bad. Asked me and you can. so the only other thing that really wanted to talk about. Other than in Dr Sponsors don't Care Kansas I mean there's I'm looking at the paint schemes for Kansas Right now, and there's like nothing like. Is there anything? Fourteen has like a dog on the side is holding. The FRISBEE s pretty cool. That's pretty the apple car. The apple car still out there and. They don't have that where we are I. didn't really check and I was giving me my next question if they have it where you are, would you be interested in trying it because I? Don't think I am not an apple guy. Yeah I WANNA. Try the PBR, coffee. There's PBR coffee. Have you not had? Have you not heard the? No, not at all. Wait alcohol or coffee, beer Alcohol. Okay so I have heard of think of her. No I haven't heard of coffee bearing. The beard, like Bert with like coffee, beans and stuff in it. I haven't tried it yet. People say it tastes like chocolate milk. Read it. But I could also say that will probably get you up. Real quick think so well. It's conflicting like it's you've got something. It's GonNa. Make you drowsy and someone's GonNa. Make you hyped up. It will. Maybe it'll even out guess so. Oh Yeah, because I I for second. Your Milk Stout, which is which is thing, but does not milk in it, but this is actual. Yard. It's called PBR hard coffee. Go figure, man. Yeah, no I've never heard of that and the strange partisan. It's PBR that's doing. Yeah I want to I actually went to go. Buy would not have. Guessed that there is also working on whiskey. Okay, who they probably just like Kopech in that out to somebody else like having somebody else make it or something. I mean that's I'm just assuming I don't know maybe the Bruin or maybe there's distilling themselves you never know. but the only thing about Kansas right now other than the fact that apparently now the eighteen cars got a flat tire problem with twelve car. He went in the wall. Everybody's having issues now. but they're the keep making a big deal about this kind of command center that are CR has. Screens and they've got telemetry and they've got dudes with computers and type in and stuff very evident one very very formula. That's exactly where I was going with. It is that they started doing that in Formula One where like during the race back in Milton Keynes England? They have like these crazy control centers in these data technicians, and they're pouring over the data and making calls for the car during the race. In shirts very high tech. And, it's interesting to see something like that Nascar but I think that is like A. Huge Red Flag as well if and there's only if. NASCAR DOES INDEED WANNA have like a salary cap like a like a spending limit on teams, because that is the perfect example of how you can say okay, you're only allowed to spend this much on the car in this much on the driver in team. Stay under that that spending cap, but if it doesn't specifically say that you can't have a of the art, you know control. Control Center then that means that the Hendrick of the world and the you know in the Stewart. Haas and the Joe Gibbs racing. They're going to have control centers like this where poor, old Levine family racing and keep the Goddamn doors open. How the HELL THEY GONNA! Have some it can can compete with that, and you get a big gap between the haves and the have nots. You know I it does open a Pandora's box. Things to do. I I think it's overkill, but I'm not shocked. At a WHO's doing it? Because, let's be honest, Richard childress right now aside from Tyler Radic. They need to get the boys going. you know it's one of those deals where it's just like. Yeah, no, we gotta gotTa make sure that the dill boys taking care of. It, I mean at the at the same time. It's it's just a step in another direction. In terms of innovation I mean I'm sure every team can do it But it's a I guess the scope that's. You don't need the like. There's six guys in there with all with three screens a piece I don't think you know a go fast. Racing is going to have forty eight screens exactly right, and they're not going to be in that that will could theoretically as everybody's just keeps running the dam wall right now if You know that theoretically could give the big teams an advantage over the smaller teams, and you know if you're truly trying to get away from if you're trying to control costs and make it easier for some of these smaller teams compete. That works against it and I'm not saying they should or shouldn't do it i. think it's cool. But it definitely you know then kind of opens the door. To where do we draw the line you know the answer to that is somewhere, but they have to pick a place it's. Before he gets out of control, they got to pick a place to say. This is where line is just. Don't go over that line and have fun. You know. You just gotTa. Make sure here. Here's your limit play within it. Yeah, I generally liked the idea. Because less people at the track. You know less danger for the you know. Crew members and things like that and and it's Kinda cool. You know think about the fact that you know somewhere. There's somebody like strategizing so day. Get, but yeah. They just have to kind of realize that that's happening. Because let's be honest. If are CR is doing it then gibbs? Hendrickson Stewart, Haas, and all of the big teams are doing it, but we know that you know the small teams are definitely not doing that. Right, Yeah of course, why would they because they? They're barely trying to make payroll it right exactly so that is consideration I think Nascar needs to start thinking about now before because it's the type of thing where it was probably born out of necessity, because those people can't be at the track, but once we're to a point where they could be at the track that operation centers still. GonNa. Keep on chugging along I. I mean you know they're not coming back from that now? UNLESS NASCAR MAKES THEM AND and I'm not saying that NASCAR should make them I'm just saying they should draw a lot, and then that's what you're allowed to do, and that's what you're not allowed to do. in terms of you know remotely engineering the race so to speak. In fact, they had to do that in a in Formula One. Because what was happening is an I don I haven't watched formula for a couple of years of about this? Sorry, but at least a couple years back that whole like command center. Make calls to the driver. And they would say all right. Here's we. It is when. You need to back off a little bit now. You need to adjust your feel this way because they had everything all the data from everyone around him, and they were telling the driver how to strategize how to drive the car. And so eventually the step in and say no to the driver has to be responsible for figuring out his own strategy and the race fear. When the drive the car, so you can, you can tell them when they come in and pet, but you can't tell them how what adjustments to make and wind make them in type things like that, and so hopefully NASCAR doesn't go down that road and get to that point where they have to step in and say that. Yeah, but it's going to be, but but it could. It could it could, but when's NASCAR, said anything. Not Not up until this point, but that's what I'm saying is that you know now that that box is open? It's something that NASCAR does need to consider. You know maybe maybe putting some parameters on so that they don't have to then go back after the fact until people know you have to throttle this back. Just you know right, just say here's level one. Here's level ten. Don't go pass level, five or something like that listen. Here's this. Here's that and we're done, but generally found it interesting. You know the the fact that they've got that. All set up right now and that they're using it. It's cool, very neat I also find it interesting. The for some reason Mark Snyder's hanging out there. He's just saying now just having fun timing and out in the screen room. The, he's an easing. Bridge of the starship enterprise or something? Studios is to say. No he was, he was there they had them. They're doing the thing with the some thing over his face fortunately. GATOR and and I don't want to. Yeah. He hasn't have to have the gator over his face. Protect them excellence. He is stupid vase. Okay Man. Can over. You don't want if they can. If they could get I feel that it's not Marty. I feel that way about everybody If they could get fricking rutledge to always wear a mask, even once this is over. That'll be fantastic and a gag. Yeah Mask and a gay I found Maryland flag gator. By the way I need to need the word I have one. Do you really? Super Jealous. Did you get it on again or one. Because I went to route, one was sold out. I got a for a birthday gift two years ago. Oh well yeah, because he got a couple of on Ebay Ebay on Amazon, and I'm like how like Poopie or not, and so I was like a ruin will have gone. Go gone, but their sold out so. Gators Erhan they do they definitely, do they? I wanted to merge. On Maryland fly you'll Maryland flag Wednesday headwear like a little crabs that were Maryland flag, and then I just want the flag man strata fly. Dare on. That I don't know that, said our crap. We're I guess we're kind of done. Moving. For them moving. Moving everybody we've found our place. China missile, Silo. We're GONNA move into. Oh. It's really in here, so if you WanNa know who won the Kentucky. Race just wait thirty laps or listen to the show next week and we'll tell you. If you want to, you can also find out who the bed the side bet. There was no side Bet, and whether the race was any good, which at this point? It's interesting because guys have wrecked, but it's I am I. Bet it's tracked position yeah. Yes I bet, but he got. Ranna. that. Travis Trevy P. let's do that. are picking straight up like where he's going to finish. Fixed, rate, up, Kimmy GimMe Give me fifteen. Fifteen, that's pretty. That's pretty like I. Mean for guys who while that's being pretty bullish. I think but sh. twenty-three say gives you a clear over under. No twenty three I think he might do all right, but I think he's going to take take a little bit more time there those niece car there's these trucks are really good. Those needs trucks are really something else. So. Yeah, THAT'D BE A. Change if you want. Okay all right fifteen twenty. That's bad. I like that so what you need to do.

In The Draft Show - The 2019 ITD NASCAR Awards!

"Dark Green spoke like hell. No don't do anything Welcome everyone to in the draft with Wilson and was I Wilson here in Sunny Southern California meanwhile across the Internet from the beautiful studio the code version. Two Point Zero. Mr Scotty was what's going on there. That's forty wind chill. Everything sucks all right so And we're going to rehash it a little bit conversation we had before we got on the air So I was because now I have to wake up at literally. Four forty five in the morning to go into daged aged talk dribble on a morning show and I'm watching the news because we gotta talk about the weather and crap like that and they said in Fargo. At that point it was nine nine degrees nine. I was like holy crap because Scotty is north north of Fargo. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like their. It's about it's not great at all actually pretty Pretty you you loathe going outside. I would imagine so. It's not like you like like you just walked past the window. And you're just like no this is not. Why did I choose to live here? And meanwhile living up to its moniker of Sunny Southern California was like seventy five degrees here today. The the only reason I'm here is because of three bedrooms seven ninety. You tried to get that here. I wouldn't be the price you'll get a cardboard box. Let let me ask you this though being as cold as as it is if if your lovely other half was like. Hey let's go get a potato in Fargo Argo worth it to get in the car in the cold and drive there or not worth it Worth it for me She'd be bitching hitching because she's constantly cold. Okay so it's basically a not a realistic scenario anyway. Because it would never suggest that in the cold she would never suggest going outside unless yes it was like a much much much warmer. Yeah what can what can you do and So this is this. Is it Scottie. It is now big gorge on the last show at the last show ever not the last show ever. But it's the big awards show. Oh that's right. It's the it's the it's what we used to be called the the A. Ps Our award the PS are awards. which are now the? It the awards exactly in the draft. If you don't remember these shows neither do we so I've got records of all of them. I have notes on all of you. Why did you put it on wax? Should've been lax. Put It on like digital format. Kids will listen to it more. I don't know although if you if you do find a way to put it on record of kids would probably listen to it more. Because that's the historic exactly. Well I do admit not being hipster. Sure I do admit I do have a record player. Well yeah why wouldn't you know it's the it's the thing to have for. You know the other thing and maybe maybe we didn't talk about this May maybe you can answer this. Because I don't know the genuine answer to it. I was having a conversation with someone today about the technology. Ajay of the interwebs right. And how you don't need to make phone calls anymore. That like what we do with hangouts that it sounds like you're here and I literally said that this person I was talking to. I said well if we didn't tell somebody if we didn't tell when I say somebody I mean in our one listener if we didn't tell that listener that we weren't in the same room together that that you were in North Dakota and California they wouldn't even know and Response Ons which logical response is within. Why do you tell everybody got a fair? I don't know the answer goes valuable point. I've no clue what the answer is. I think it's just because say. Hey listen we're from two different areas in the same room together could see each other. That's why we step over each other's lines I know. Yeah it's it's always been a thing like when you're in Canada that's how we did it when you were in. Canada was in California. We were in Canada. Yeah exactly it's it's for the Gimmick. I think it makes it more real. I guess I don't know I'm not in the comments. Let us know yeah real all five of you let us now. Uh hopefully we'll get one hundred percent response rate on it so every year at the end of the season at the end of the year we do our awards after NASCAR does their official official awards. The only thing that we don't have that they do have is burn out on on the public road. Well speak for yourself. I I have done one of those this year Not that I would admit to not your honor specifically not when I had the Camaro Assessing Kentucky I did not do any burn out some public roads. No nurtured you responsible man. It would have been fun though if it had happened. Sure so yeah so the difference between our award show and the NASCAR awards show. We have substance yet. We have substance. We have interesting awards the handout and no out of tune country stars sing. And when I say stars I use a little finger quotes now the problem. The problem was that guy. Did It on short notice because the other guy got a Dui. Is that what happened. I don't even know yeah you got a Dui they can't him. I didn't know that man cassidy. Pope was okay though. Love me some cast most. Is it mostly look at but you know not as mystic as you know exactly yes you appreciate the music and only the music. What what I what I lack massaging I make up for racism? Put that on a TV. Show we we. We make up and races that it should be NASCAR. How they're selling the damn sports people nowadays just coming exactly exactly? It's like look here's Haley. We lack you massage. We're welcoming her. We make up for when you see those pictures of the Infield Talladega Alad ega man hurt not hate brother. Oh Oh God. I can't say I haven't been drinking tonight so I will say this folks. Is that what we're GONNA do some award ship. There's a there's a fair amount of news to be talked there it really is. I was Kinda shocked. I thought it was going to be one story. And now that they're now they're like three or four big wants We'll do those including one. You don't even have on here. Oh really oh always mate eight. We might want to talk about or do you WanNa talk about it this week. Let's talk about it next week. We need filler for next week. Oh Yeah we'd definitely going to need something for for the next two shows finish out the ear. Although it's two weeks from now Christmas thinking might be. It's boxing day. We find boxing me. We'll be all right for that matching the afternoon. I swear to God I think our bosses making us work that they by the way. Why not? Yeah I know right. I think I have to work that day too so I I can't. I worked the hospital. This is completely different. That is a slightly different scenario. They think people require are your services a hell of a lot more than they require mine. So so let's get down to it. I do not have my zone. I I left at at the dry cleaners. They forget to pick it up But and we don't have any like wouldn't have a band but we're gonNA have to think of a band between now and the end of the first segment that we're going to have performed so keep that in the back of your mind But let's start. Shall we please all right. So let's get going with. Nineteen in the draft show awards the first category stories. This time around scillies moves and I I was going through and putting together this list. A lot of silly season moves from two thousand eighteen and heading into two thousand nine hundred thousand. Big Name drivers to So here are the nominees for the best silly sees a move heading into two thousand nineteen. Of course all all of these categories are the same where I'm going to kick out a couple of options because we don't have pre show meetings but either of us can just feel free to go off board at any point and pick somebody else so the four that put together for nominees for the best silly season. Move heading into two thousand. Nineteen Martin trikes junior to Joe Joe. Gibbs racing shirt wasn't his decision to do this but they did it anyway Moving to a new team even though he kept his coochie still had seven wins. He was second in understandings and made the championship for Kurt Busch to chip Ganassi racing. One Win for him thirteenth in the standings and of course he made the playoffs met Di Benedetto Levine family racing to top fives seven top tens twenty second in the standings his best cup season ever after making that move and then Ryan Newman rash racing three top. Fives fourteen top tens. On the season he was fifteenth in the standings made the playoffs and was his best year. Rushes best you're probably since two thousand fifteen deed do any of those or do you like somebody else. I think I gotta go. I think therefore strong candidates for strong candidates and I have to say that that it has to be true ex marine you go to. I think it only see I'm torn because it's a good move but it was really just a formality right. If we're being honest right we've all all that it was booting sorted out of the right basically So as a true I think from a success standpoint. I think that's winner but if we're going for something that wasn't just a lateral move I think Ryan Newman in that. I think when we said when we were kind of weirded out by it when Matt Kenseth Left Ryan Newman was the guy to replace him but I think my thing was like. Finally there's an there's a guy who knows cars. WHO's an engineer? Who can tell these guys how to fix it and I think I think that move there not only set up this season but I think it's going to set up future seasons as well especially with Chris Butcher coming into the ride I think the communication that Ryan Newman is giving to rouse racing? Thing is a beautiful asset for them. Not only on the track but I think in the garage. Well I think he's a very hands on guy I think he'll he'll continue that with with the new teammate. He make Chris Bush or because I'm pretty sure him and Ricky Stenhouse didn't Gel it all. Yeah you know I Normally in these categories like to pick somebody different. We'd like to pick somebody different than the other one but I have to agree one hundred percent. I mean Joe Gibbs had to make that move with Martin treks. Because you can't get rid of. Martin directs the championship. He was second in the points here before you can't get rate of him but with rouse racing. They had a genuine decision. Who Do we put in this car and they made a gutsy move bringing in somebody? Like Ryan Newman. When they already had a veteran and Matt Kenseth who couldn't get anything done with the car because of that I think he made the biggest contribution to his team? Bigger than any of those guys trucks brooks is already good. Kurt Busch already capable of making the playoffs. Di Benedetto did have a very good season but he didn't transform that team but I agree with you. Ryan Newman and did could be pivotal for outracing. Going forward if they make wise decisions with who they picked to replace him in the future and And what drivers they go with as they go down the road. Who Do you think takes over rash one once jet crash guitar there? I don't know I mean I'm assuming that the fenway group just Kinda like maybe they bring bring in some sort of managing partner like some sort of like Greg Zip Adelie type of guided to do the whole thing not not specifically him but somebody like him. Maybe you know what I would do not not to get too far ahead of us. You know what I would do if I was row jack. Roush Roush Fenway Guys Cockburn. Exactly right now. That's exactly what I would do. I would call him and say hey listen you chill out you relax but then when we need you we will make sure that you get to stay at home either way spoiler Colpaert left the nineteen more on that later. Lady I know right. That's always I want to get ahead of myself but if I were outsourcing exactly what I would do exactly what it would get him to commit to maybe not right now but staying kind of in tune with what's going on and then he gets to work from the office in the shop that we doesn't have to go on the road he's still gets suspend as much time with his family easy once he still gets paid and I think he would be awesome for that organization absolutely. Yeah so that's I think we both agree on the best has to their Ryan Newman real Extremely give him but Ryan Newman on top of that But then what about the worst scillies move heading into two thousand nineteen and these are interesting drivers because they each have kind of a unique situation. I've got Daniel Suarez down dinosaurs to Stewart Haas racing but the guy had four top. Fives eleven top tens. He was seventeenth in the standings. It was his best cup. You're ever but he got fired. Then you've got Daniel Hamrick with Richard Children. Tracing one top five to ten twenty fifth in the standings not great but he was the rookie of the year and he got fired. Then we've got Ryan preece going doing the JT. Dorothy as a rookie. One top five three top ten twenty six in the scenes but he was a rookie. He was only one spot behind Daniel Hammock and then for fun I put them. Tanner Berryhill on. Because it's technically was a move. His bike racing said that they were gonNA ride. Terry Tanner Berryhill all year long and and he. He didn't run a single race. Now did the team. We'll have we'll have more news on that. Do you like any of them or do you like somebody else. It's wasn't so many guys that moved moved. Yeah you know. I think that I think that of the guys that moved. I don't think anybody was terrible. Per Se because the worst to performers were rookies. Jeez and how much do you expect from a rookie. Nowadays right yeah And it's Kinda hard to say If you had to give it to somebody who would you give tell. Oh who do. Who Do you guys because I went first last time I would do? It's tough one. You know I would do. I would say no you know who I would say. I would say tanner Berryhill not because he didn't get the runoff race. But because and not from Oh bike aside. This is not the worst silly season decision from the team side. This is the worst Susan decision from the driver's side. Because why anybody in the right mind would sign a contract saying to a bike racing. I'm planning on running a full season with you've got to be delusional sure. That's that's my only reasoning thing there. It doesn't doesn't go to the team. In this case goes to the driver for be dumb enough to think that he was really going to be able to run a full season with them. Yeah exactly something interesting. which way you're going off board little off board really Joe Gibbs racing uh-huh and Jeffrey earnhardt not picking Jeffrey earnhardt debate by by their that whole thing where they took his sponsor they did been terms of the whole? I K nine thing They everyone was hyped. Up About Jeffrey earnhardt getting a good ride and he performed well and then something just weird eared happen and I. I don't know if it's it's from Gibbs's side I don't know if it's from earnhardt side. I don't know I sponsor side but that's just the bed decision because because you have the name like like earnhardt and Jeffrey state around Toyota because he wants to stay loyal to a manufacturer. That did him good. Would that didn't do him dirty. And then just things fell apart so I think just for that alone and the craziness that happened around that and the extreme concepts team kind of falling out of favor as well. I think that that was a bad decision for Jeffrey earnhardt to to make a move to stay with Toyota rather than going somewhere else and again again a word to the driver and not the team in that case because and not only they still that sponsor for the xfinity seriously solar for the Cup series too. Yeah exactly so they really made off very well in that field. And I mean Jeffrey Earnhardt Kinda got screwed over not only by Gisbert by by sponsored Toyota. Yeah no I agree with that one hundred percent So those are the best and worst season moves the two thousand nineteen next. Stop the driver. You'd want on your side in a bar fight. Otherwise is known as the Tony Stewart Award nominee. Is this your Clint Boyer. Obviously he had a very publicized. Him With Ryan Newman Ryan Newman because his neck. That is really really big and he. He survived that boyer thing Danny Hamlin who got into a fight this year remember tried to stand up strong to Mr Lugano and then I'm nominating. Joey Logano but joy Lagaan was crew members because every time he gets himself in that kind of situation. It's never joey that Eh gets in. The middle of the fractious tackles dude. It's always one of his crew members. specifically I believe it's the Jackman has ballot at like six feet wide. I think yeah. Do you like those guys. You want to go a different direction. There's there's there's a lot there's a lot to talk about here Obviously I'm going off board. Braley Daniel Suarez. Skin there. Yup Feisty boy he was this year ear help. Going after Michael Mcdowell took him down and then was still like trying to kick. Once while Michael McDowell by the way a lot of people a lot the fights involving guys still wearing their homes. I know right I mean everybody gave complete crap. Overnight what about Michael McDowell. He didn't take off his helmet right and then he started to try to choke chokes whereas exactly really so. There's that I think I think he's feisty he's a guy who's not gonna take take crap from anyone as we saw with the bubble wallace thing. Yup I think that that Daniel swore has I think he's an chip on a shoulder to there's a guy who's definitely gonNA try to go out of his way to prove something so I'm GonNa take down in the store as an in a fight and And and leave the rest because there are other the dummies you have especially joy. Louisiana's crew even though highly legal rights to have one against five. I know right right and I also give adventure. Ryan Newman. Just because he's got a thick skull he does take some impact. Exactly yeah if I had to pick one dude this year I would take newman because because he stood up the boyer thing. I didn't even phasing. But you know I gotta I gotta go with numbers. I mean if you're gonNA fight fight dirty fight dirty and I gotta go at Lagaras crew members because I know if I get into some stuff that next thing I know they're gonNa be five dudes there just jumping on the guy and I can just walk away. We'll get the the the the thing is they can plan to. Yeah they can. They can plan. Yeah they knew Shit's going to go down exactly. They know they know what's going. Oh man you Suarez. I would've gone to his crew members. Nelson's paints keeps. I'm can't wait for the paint schemes before we get to that. Can we talk about the top selling die-cast this year. Oh yes as we can absolutely seeing this you heard about I have not. What are you got number ten? If the interstate batteries Kyle Busch car. Although the the the strike cartner superstructure interesting Number nine chase Elliott's mountain dew makes sense yep number eight chase Elliott. Watkins Glen Win. I I sense a trend developing here. Now you don't but what are you talking about number seven chase Elliott and apple trademark win did ever since I hope I think so. Martin directs at number six pro shop car car car number. We're five bit of a change. Chase Elliott hooters car number. Four Jimmy Johnson's ally car you know. Surprisingly I like that car I really do like that car. Our number three The mountain dew. Little Caesar Salad a wind car. Chase Elliott okay. That was a little handle chrome effect to it. I believe a little bit. Yeah and he's got the Little Caesar the pizza number two. Dale Juniors Helman's throwback really algae under still checking in with the merch yeah exactly and then number one chase Elliott regular regular NAPA paints so one two three four five six six of the top ten or all Chafe Ellie. That is perfect because has these are the cars. I threw up his nominees. Just at random. they all chase Elliott. Then they're all chase Elliott. There's no now because we're GONNA start with regular paint scheme so chase chase can only be nominated once and I did. I put here are the ones that put down on the list as I cars. I thought were generally good just like traditional NASCAR paint schemes number nine Napa but chase Elliott of course number eleven next any Hamlin flip-flop the color scheme on that one and it worked big form and success Nineteen Bass pro shops. Good overall car eight. Nationwide car good-looking car and the number four Bush car the Blue Bush curtain mountains and stuff on the side. It's not nearly the cores slay. The you know the silver bullet car but still it was pretty good. So do you like any of those or I'm sure you're gonNA probably pick something other than those guys you go I is there. Were alternate I you know I actually. After I made this list I was thinking about it. I was like you know what even though he totally sucked this year. And it's such a departure from what he I used to run. I actually did ally car. I think I'm GonNa go ally car on that one. I like the code while the Corporate Purple I was definitely going to afford on that one and in and pick that when I think it's a slick cards a nice looking car but of the choices we have here. I think the Bush cars the one that I like the most I think it's a good. It's a crisper look it's nice. It kind of captures what you want out of a Bush Bush thirty pack for ten dollars. Like its`perfectly did you hear by the way about the ninety nine pack of Loses does it PABST. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. PBR There has to be a PBR car. Next year with a ninety nine pack but all of those I actually dig big I think I dig the NAPA card the best and the Russians from what it used to be. It's definitely to put. I like that kind of like just to tone blue white but but I do that. The bass pro shops is like that that is a very NASCAR e paint scheme. Yeah it really is So that's the best regular pay scheme best special paint scheme scheme that this could I mean there are million their million options. I mean there's so many cars I was going through. I had to stop making list. I mean I put down the number two Miller lite patriotic a car for the you know for the span of time when we had the red white and blue cars I like that one. A Lot. the number four. I kind of combined the Gen-x car in the millennial scheme together for them Caterpillar Caterpillar had some really good special paint schemes. This year. I like the moment the little trend that went around the back rim on that one other go bowling car was good The call Carr with the wings on the corncob on the front. That was good Darlington had a taiga wines. Runs the twenty four. You Know City Chevy car You had to old spice car the old spice car with the beard on it. Oh the Corey Lahore. Hilo Hawaii Car Aria that was awesome and Adam petty tricky. I mean there are so many good special paint schemes poopie. Wants but there was wants to you. This could be anything anything I just go for it man. Just throw whatever you like a hard one to the. It's a difficult one because I mean you got everything and luckily there's a site that gives you every every kind of scheme for every race there was yeah and even opening the door on any xfinity seem there are some kick aspects of these schemes to. I mean if I'm giving giving a top if if I if I may give top three May give a top three in no particular order Landing Castles astles coors light trip bucar. That was really cool because it was so authentic. It looked exactly like sterling. Marlin's go staying in Darlington. Joey cases xfinity car which was eight. The Todd Bodine Tabasco Scheme. Oh I forgot about that one yes. I'm was excellent. So it's kind. It was the same thing it was Carolina Cooker which is another spice so it was kind of copyright infringement but it worked out of you know what you're going to do and and of course. I think I would be remiss if I did not mention the car with heat on the side of his right And and good for Kevin Harvick to be a good sport about that as well. Yeah no I I definitely number three for me would be the combination of genetics in the millennial cars For Kevin Harvick Becau because they weren't taking themselves too seriously and that that's the best part There was that one The the The who did the the Jeff Gordon Baby Ruth car was that that was meant. That was wasn't offended at it was somebody in xfinity series and I can't remember uh net. Mike Glennon won't be on there for me and then I gotta give credit to the Adam petty tribute car. That was just car was very good car. Not taking anything away from those other ones because there's some really cool paint schemes this year. I'm all right so we go from the best to the worst and hear hear the cars throughout their for the worst regular paint scheme so it has to be Pinson was Ra- more than once you know semi regular basis. I've put the number three American ethanol car weird colored rain. It just didn't count a it didn't flow very well. My personal favorite and I'm going to say this is my this is my favorite. Were skewed. 'cause I love even though eight at number seventeen fifth third bank. It's Nar v I it is one into. It's the one and two thirds bank. Sure then you've got the Darty guys with the weekly fiascos on the thirty seven and the forty seven and I thought the forty two clover car was very unimaginative. Imaginative as well So it was I. I vote for the seventeen than that. One what do you like God I hate to do it. I hate to do it to him. But it's just such a land scheme the SMITHFIELD card number ten. Yeah it's it's just a basic black and wait and if you didn't know what Smithfield was being. They do their baking car and stuff like that but other than that. There's nothing signifying this meat company. It reminds me like it makes me think thank and not just because of the number ten reminds me of the number one it makes me think of one of those like Gim racing cars bobby game racing car or Or like in early two who thousands paint scheme that just never changed. They never did anything with it. Like I could see Mackenzie there. Tony Stewart driving one of those two thousand three. Yeah I'm with you on that I I. It just didn't do it for me. I mean it's it's a decent car and you always know who's dry like what it is and who's driving that car but it just doesn't. It doesn't do it and it's weird because you know we both agree on that but like you know I know we've had conversations before we were like they need to keep the paint schemes. The same everybody knows. And and you're right you see that car and you're like oh I know it's Eric I'm role but yeah it's just that doesn't happen it doesn't have to be that paint scheme that they have every week So that's the worst special are worse nor regular paint scheme more special paint scheme again we could i. There's so many that you can have here I put the I particularly didn't like these four The number four big buck hunter card. That can really granted darlings. That was not a big fan of that. Because there's a video game. It wasn't a throwback was a video game you know the number nine hooters spirits car because it was basically just like a hooter scheme and then they just slapped a couple of key. They're like Oh crap they're gonNA know. Hoover spirits has put a picture of a bottle on their. It'll be fine exactly and in two other Darlington ones number seventeen dogs most wanted and the number thirty six t I motor sports schemes. Because again. They weren't really throw well. The dogs wasn't a throwback scheme the TI was what was just a terrible throwback scheme for me. It wasn't terribly interesting on those who you don't like any of those. Is this the one that we hated the the one that we don't like the most. You know what it's probably super unpopular in popular. But I'm going to do it anyway because the popularity Ryan Blaney But this is retro car. The Pennzoil car. It's just like it just looked like Joey Logano car. Oh Yea did you're absolutely right. He's done to Darlington tributes. That didn't it. Didn't look anything that had no markings that it was attributed car even when he did the tribute to his dad's car. It looked like it was a menards car. Yeah I mean it was it was pennzoil. It'd be better if they because it was. Oh Michael Waltrip when he was with Bahari racing better if they had country time lemonade on the side. To just really and that was it was basically it basically looked like a car he would run. I had to look look up to make sure it wasn't just a pennzoil like intertwined sponsorship deal. Yeah no I agree with you on that one. That's not a bad pick it all For me I went. It was hard hard choice but I went Dogs most wanted because his wife dive. I feel bad. I genuinely feel bad about that. But it was supposed supposed to be Darlington throwback weekend and they advertise the brand new. TV show can't do that. They should have done it the next week. Or the week before casts casts. I mean. Come on you gotTa Give Him Slack. His wife died. I know but still come on. Man Did that show even do anything. I don't even know the still on his recovery when he was after he said the N.. Word Alana Time Constantly Damn I missed one. Oh what a good scheme. Oh which one corvette parts dot net Ford with the Scooby Doo. Oh that was awesome. Yeah does it. Yeah like I said. There's so many good special games this year. Not Bound was ovens very good scheme. It was the mystery machine scheme Our only the Mark Martin old people sponsor award a course pioneered by Mr Martin and his Viagra car. There were there were although we have to give a little layup to to Mike Bliss who actually helped bring Ditty for the number twenty seven. Ill River racing car I've forgotten by Aker moved after valvoline move to the ten. I do believe they. They did. Yeah and then the six was Viagra. Car and mark mark embraced it so to speak. I mean I don't know if you really do. You know what I mean but you have to ask his wife about about that but But yes there were a surprising number of entries this year. I'm always boys nervous that That the old people sponsors are going to shy away from the sport because of its dwindling population and dwindling attendance. But no no they came out number. One car had the advent health center marginal March. I mean they could apply to other people as well. But then the hitter it straight on the fifteen and the twenty-seven ran low T. center this year. That's that's a classic by by the way not center number thirty two vice zone. I guess you say by zone. RV DOT COM and as we all know only old people drive around and RV's owed people are cousin Nettie number thirty to Dublin up by the way because they have the Zona RV dot com car but also an old person store like an old person goto buying gold in a fear that the country is about to fall. Apart at any moment the Hartford Gobert was on the thirty two car this year as well We also had the number thirty eight shriners hospital very good 'cause however like there I don't think there's a single Schreiner on the planet that's under seventy three. And then the the number forty three the classic blue the blue EMU car ghetto blue-emu out of you like handy though surface. Another go for me. Personally I think even as as awesome as blue EMU is and And I'm the King Richard Petty Blue I think I gotta go low T.. On this one interesting I'M GONNA go with with one of the thirty two and I think it's because you see the infomercials on during the price is right you see people talking about their precious metals. Fox's Fox's is a huge one for for for the gold gold stuff and I mean the Hartford Group is just a just a cavalcade of bills people out of money. The Hartford Cold Group is my pick for this whole thing. Because I mean you WanNa you wanNA take some boomers for their money. This is the way to do it yourself. Salvo investing gold. IRA exactly every election cycle. There's a huge pot for the gold group. People know it's all going to fall apart. It doesn't matter if the right-wing or left-wing done it doesn't matter Oh they're gonNA they're gonNA take our guns buy gold the economy's GonNa fall apart by gold gold thing man. They have a full thing in Fort Knox with with go along they're gonna come across the border by gold. They're never gonNA be able to make it across the border by gold us any reason. Oh man are we for. Oh No we're not at the. Oh good good. We've got race. Moore's left you have stuff to do. We've got three more awards and the first half of the awards show has done next up the epic Shady Lady Slash Horse Jockey. This is the word that goes to either the whitest white boy in Nascar or the shortest driver in Nascar how those two combined. I'm not sure but they did long long ago. I think mostly thanks to Bobby Hamilton. Junior and so Nominees in this category Joy llegado. I mean that's self explanatory. I have to say anything about that. Calar some very small Ajoy Laguna very white. By the way in case you didn't know Colors very small Daniel. Henrik and William Byron both very very pasty kids and Eric Jones looks like he likes video games more than he likes. Nascar cut him that the haircut. Yeah and the great look and Kim we. Oh we'll get to we'll get we'll get the hair more in a moment because we need to lament the disappearance of great hair in NAS car. Is it my turn of your turn to go. I think it's I think it sure is. Yeah Yeah do you like any Hamlin. Oh Oh that's a good one. Yeah good he's off board for especially with his Joey logano impersonation. Let's we'll talk about that on the air but that was not one of his finest moments by really well. That's up there with no that's trying to we like a real sport. Keep real exactly. I was like Jesus Christ dude seriously. Do think about these things before you do them. Obviously the answers and of course the same applies enjoy Lugano. But it's not like you know it's not like Hamlin really. It's all like him when rose above there we'll put it that way. Yes so I think that's a very good choice. I'm going with William Byron and only because I don't think I'm going to go with William Byron next year and it's like I'm doing that the kind of cap off fall the he's a young kid jokes that had been flying around this year saw going Byron on that one. I liked that one although really I mean honestly that could be renamed named Joey Logano Award and I don't think yeah. Yeah will bestow him that honor kind of shady work because we have to keep shady. Oh Yeah we're totally do So then we get to one of the marquee awards of the evening. The Wally Allenbach award for the most useless driver in Nascar not to be confused with the highlight the series or is this anywhere anywhere anywhere. That's not to be confused with with the Gary Carpenter Award for not showing up. No no this is just. You know you're there you showed up you just might as well not have uh-huh and the guy's arm throwing out there for this one David Ragan who in his retirement year didn't score a single top. Ten Finish Michael McDowell who had two top tens all your long and the thing for me. The only reason the list for me because he didn't have two top tens. If you had asked me did Michael McDowell run all thirty six races this year. I would've legitimately said No. Oh I don't think he did no no he was at all interesting. I know I'm realized that and the same could be said of this next driver. Landon Castle also ran Iran all thirty six races this year. who had an average finish of twenty ninth and the weird part about? This is that he would have. He actually would have finished higher higher than a couple of charter drivers. Probably finish higher the Michael McDowell but he didn't even declare for the Cup points so he was there any ram but it didn't matter he might as it's will not have been because it was all for nothing and then sadly Sam Really I. I'm bummed out to have to say this for the second year in a row bubble Wallace's nominated because if it wasn't for Indie he wouldn't have had a top ten at all this year even with his prowess at Daytona and Talladega. And you know the propensity for you know at least one card so often to get up there. He had a really really bad year. It is your turns MM-HMM I'm going I'm going I'm going landing castle on this one thing and that that will get split between between driver and team because if you're going to have them in the car all f year and if your landing house you're GonNa be in the car eleven year at least a clear for points you you know. I wonder if that that's a reason why he's he left. The air got booted out of the team. Maybe me why wouldn't you if you're planning on running all the races if if you're gonNA run all the races in any Syria even if you're running all the races in two series always declare for the higher series better chance workout for you moneywise sponsor wise something like that all right. Who Do you got in this one? I am going off board. Going Austin Dillon. Really really worst point standings again tied with his sophomore season. His sophomore season is is the worst average finished. This year is second only six top. Ten's he did have three poll awards but that doesn't mean anything because he only led seventy laps. Slough I think that for a guy who was came in and was given a prima ride has shown not not much for it and that is an correct me. If you disagree that is the prime example of why you should never employ a family member in the sport visits the family ever not even in this sport just in life. Yeah because I mean now. Richard childress is his painted into a corner with him. What's HE GONNA do? He can't fire him now not easily at least but I mean there is put it this way. There's there's a reason that Dale Earnhardt Jr.. Well he did he raise for D I but he is on the same team so I guess I guess I I guess that kind of contradicts. What I'm saying but but yes senior didn't have a hands on? Yeah Dale and the L. Senior would have had the balls to fire his own son if he was sucking up the joint. Sure but General in general you know that that's the that's what the that's where you're headed if you you know if you if you hire somebody became purely because of nepotism and not necessarily because they perform now that Austin Dillon's deserve a shot but in Nascar but we can all admit that he that he's gone as far as he has been around for as many years as he has simply because of that family connection absolutely absolutely not to prove Kevin Harvick writer anything And then the final word of the first half of the two thousand nine hundred ninety the awards the best driver Confrontation Tation of two thousand. Nineteen here your initial nominees. Although we might go off board on this one Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin at Martinsville very highly publicized replayed replayed about ten thousand times Clint Boyer and Ryan Newman at Charlotte. The ill-fated Helmet on fight Cole custer and Tyler Rettig and there was I wrestling match at Kansas. And then Daniel Suarez McDowell another helmet on event at the Knicks I'm going with the last one. On that Suarez McDowell Had the most action I think plus swore a single handedly took down McDowell until he got like Kinda tackled by that other dude who tried to put the choke hold on him right. Yeah Yeah Atas those McDonald's it certainly wasn't the biggest newsmaker big newsmaker because with qualifying qualified for the All star race. Vall thanks but But yeah certainly Joey Logano and Denny Ham was the one that made the biggest headlines but it also for me was not really a fight at at all. Well no not at all it was it was more pit crew against driver kind of yeah exactly So what do you say we. I guess we should probably take a break. Come back talk about this cope burns situation. Ladies and gentlemen. We waited all day. Yeah it is time now. He's tuned up the band. Yes he's ready to go. Oh who do. We have. WHO WHO? I'm so excited. Gentlemen if you if you made sure get your dancing shoes on Lubega and it's Mambo number five in here again Erica. I'm outside of. We know Sandra Vince Bass and goes in a circle bell. Talk about it in the draft with Wilson Walks. Walk back in the draft with Wilson Ause. I'm Wilson that is the wise man and we are in the middle of the two thousand nineteen in the draft. Show awards. Thank you to Mr Lubega Mumbo number twenty seven. Is that what it is now. You got a little Joey and his lay. I'd like to tell you change. The women's names names in Nascar driver named. Oh my God I could totally see them doing that. On the NASCAR wards show. Of course the Lubega everybody Eddie's leg llegado true Xiomara a little bit Bush Dow newmains remains. All I need is well. That's see four should. Have you seen that. Put that up a patriot. We'll make some money with Louie. Louie Louis Anderson seeing it's wonderful world guy you remember. When Louie Anderson hosts that was the worst they legitimately and and by the way since since insult Since we're on that topic PLEASE NASCAR stay in Nashville. It's fine as fine but just somebody other than Merrill Lynch man just any passage of. I'll take Louie Anderson guerrilla J- Well Take Louie Anderson early. Even the last time we were interesting on he was Lou Lou Anderson was on he was totally drunk and the jokes went over like a lead weight. Yeah just look straight to the bottom. Do you remember that one. When he it's like came out and he was drunk and tell these jokes and nobody was getting them was terrible him all right so first? Half of the awards are done. Second half the awards. It's coming up in a minute. But first we got to talk from NASCAR because shocker and I just went back today because I wanted to see if there were any hints in the last interview the March rex did that. Maybe Cold Perm was gonNA leave the nineteen and thanks Nascar not even been putting up any post award show interviews at all or even though or even the audio all the awards speeches nothing. All they had were Some interview view clips from Wednesday from the Wednesday before the award. Show listen to listen to the the tricks junior interview and you know he's talking about how thankful he was the Copernican credited such good job making the transition and they were looking on building on that for next year to do even better so at that point which only a couple of weeks ago he last week really He didn't he didn't know this was going to happen or he wasn't letting onto it. That makes sense. Yeah spur them thing you go home and veg out from frigging everything that's going on and then you move forward so pirnce done on track. He's not going to be the nineteen crew chief anymore. I don't know if it's an official retirement per se But he's just not he's not going to be the crew chief anymore Two things number one. How do you do you think it's going to affect Martin treks junior next season or penalty? Get in there. I guess yeah honestly if there's going to be someone within in house I don't know someone else I then then we might have a problem. I mean you you know what helps. Is the team like if this had happened when he was at furniture row. I'd be I'd be very concerned I'd be very concerned. Because they don't have that that that infrastructure there you know it was that combination of Copernican Martin tricks your made it all work Joe Gibbs racing. I mean it's a juggernaut man. I mean everybody. In one of those cars Air Jones made the playoffs and And so you know from that perspective perspective I'm not that concerned about Mardi however and cold perm was a big big part of the when you look at the stats before Colpon. And after co per with Martin tracks. Now it's it's hard. It's hard to draw those direct comparisons. Because you know it was different team to mean he. He didn't have colpon when he was at you know when he was at a Michael Waltrip racing so and that first year. I'll did he have him that version of the of the first year at front row furniture or not one way or the other does matter because I was in adjustment year. So it's hard. It's hard to do a direct comparison but it's clear that those two guys together. Were you know the Toyota equivalent of Jimmy Johnson. Checking out type UH of scenario and we saw what happened to Jimmy this year without Chad. So I don't know I think there could be drop off. I just don't think it's going to be that big of a drop off because because overall Joe Gibbs racing is just that good yeah I think there's enough in house to keep that team going I mean hell they They gave what's his name. Eric Jones a playoff ALF worthy car. Yeah so I think it doesn't matter it's a system situation in terms of these teams run a system and they put a player they put somebody at the head and then they run that the same system and everything's fine. Yeah no and that is the advantage that Joe Gibbs racing has over just about everybody else is that they've got that system in place better than anybody else else says the question number one question number two what was question number two darn it. Oh Okay so here's question number two. Is this the best argument for a shorter NASCAR season because I read an interview or or quote really more than interview read a quote from coal pearn. He was asked if the Nascar season was twenty races. Would he be making this announcement and he said if the season were twenty races I might be sticking around. No absolutely. Is this this. This is like reason number. Four thousand twenty four. You know. It's one of those things where yes it should have been. Yeah come on. It's it's bizarre. Why this is still the thing when Nascar thinks they have to drag it out you know I mean Dale Earnhardt. Jr. obviously would like to. He still enjoys racing but he don't WanNA raise thirty thirty six races a year. Jimmy Johnson I think that if the season were fifteen or twenty races that Jimmy Johnson wouldn't be retiring now whether or not is a different story. But I don't think you would necessarily be retiring entirely absolutely. I think that Gordon still would have and I think that Stewart's to would've would've you know you'll the one other guy that will be interesting to ask that question of a Carl Edwards. It'll be interesting to ask Carl Edwards. If the season were twenty races races. Would he have retired when he did. And it's probably not yeah am still around so that that should be like very like big billboard big red flag to Nascar that when they redo the schedule in twenty twenty one. That's one of the things they should consider So that was by far the biggest story. Then we've got front row motorsports. It's they officially do or do sign. That resigned but they do sign John Hunter Nemechek for the second car on top of that say they will one or two percent. Only we have two cars this season. not only. Is that a good thing for John. Hundred check but it's a bad thing for Daniel Suarez because a he ain't getting that car and be there in another car. Are there for him to get so. He still varieties of right. Now not really shocked at all. It's it's one of those things where you know he's going to have the earn his wings again. He's going to have to prove himself again. Even more which I don't kind of weird to say for a guy this young who who's had success but sometimes it's the same same thing Daniel Hammocks doing. If you were swore us. You know you got three. There's no cup rights. I mean there is like rick ware some crap like that you can. Uh I suppose spire motorsports. I mean he would certainly have the sponsorship he'd be able to bring sponsorship money with him if you were. Would you knowing that the cups. Here's he's pretty much on the option not competitively least. Would you go back to Mexico. Run in that series. Would you go back to xfinity with the intent of making your way back Acta Cup or or would you pull them at craft in which pull around Hornets junior and say you know what I'm GonNa go. I'M GONNA take my my ample sponsorship money going to go to the truck series. I'M GONNA go. I'm just going to establish myself. I'm just going to go out there. I'm GonNa Win Races GonNa Win Championships and then you're going to be competitive. I think it's X. series honestly honestly because that he can do that in the series and be fine I think the truck series you can get very much out of the group with xfinity. I think you're there because the truck series is is the perfect NASCAR length raise like twenty two races. Yeah but they're off like fourteen weeks after race so it's hard for him to have a consistent Have people consistently seeing him so I think the XFINITY is the way to go and prove the south. Prove yourself improve. Be Worth that way I would be super tempted. OB super tempted to go back to the truck series. If I were him and I'll tell you I for for the coal perm reason less burnout. Help right And then think about this for a minute. He already has an xfinity series championship. Let's say why he goes back to the truck series and he wins because he's very talented driver. I I still maintain these incredibly talented. He goes out there he wins in the next. It's two years he wins. You know like maybe sixteen seventeen eighteen races and wins championships. Now he would have have three championships. Two in the truck series one in the experiment you could legitimately earn start. Having the conversation does Daniel Suarez. Belong in the hall of fame. Crafted way you could craft in situation at that point. I'm very surprised that somebody lighting source. Somebody like Ricky stenhouse junior who has to his to xfinity series championships. Right that drivers like that. Don't say all right. I'm stumbling here in the Cup series. I'm going to go all the way back in dominate and try and see if we can establish myself horrid junior style and back my way into the hall of fame. I'm not saying that they should do that as like a career strategy. But I'm saying it could be a a beneficial side effect to accept accepting your situation and making the best of it. I think it's a good. I think it's a good start. Good idea it's a good mindset but whether or not it holds up that's a different story entirely I mean he can go there and completely flame out to true and you know for most drivers making that Kinda move isn't going to Isn't going to encourage sponsors to latch on but but Suarez's in a unique situation because he's got somebody backing him that has great contacts and so he could theoretically step all the way back and so keep Paris or so keep another another really good sponsor that could keep him running for a number of years. Yeah I mean it's it's a huge situation I mean there's a big opportunity for him is just finding a way to do it. It and market himself better than he has been marketed. Now flip side of that John Hundred new mature go into front row good situation from. I think it's a good opportunity for him absolutely. Yeah I'm you know. I don't know where the ceiling is with that team but he has the ability to impress everyone else by like Canada Matt. Di Benedetto with it and outperforming what people would expect sure. Yeah I mean you have to pretty much run era re route out run your coverage as it were. Yeah and then maybe this is. This goes goes ahead of things and see how I don't know I don't know I don't know what to do with that car because those cars very mediocre at best except for on like high-speed tracks absorb whatever the splitter Old also known as restrictor plate tracks so I mean I don't know how to make it. We'll have to see how he does and if he can make that team better yeah. That's his best shot. Moving up is is you know. Making the team. Looks like it's better because of him And then Felix Subodh is retiring. He apparently sold his remaining portion in the team. The chicken ASEAN he's done I won't end an end to this twenty twenty or the end of two thousand twenty. Okay so I don't blame I don't blame Teddy REX for leaving. I mean he's done it he's done at all I mean if And and everybody. Everybody who doesn't know who feel about is really is because always can ask racing with Felix bodies but nobody ever says always chip Ganassi racing and the Phillix spot is hanging around two things about Felix. SPOT IS A. He started the team. Who Seems ATCO Yup Did they can secret. Car Teams ABC. Oh No that was That was agent for you And so then he brought chip Ganassi in two NASCAR and also got chip. Ganassi started in sports car racing as well where he's been very successful and all because of Felix about us so he. He jumped off a lot of people and then get ask you kind of did that. And he seventy four. He did his time to go. I mean he had fun. He went racing. He made a lot of money You made a lot of money before. He went racing He he I believe he was the first one to import a Tarez. NTN into the United States and then did the same thing with teddy rocks but the thing the only downside the only downside is that chip Ganassi Smart Smart Guy and so he would limit whether whether whether on purpose or just by accident we kind of limit the amount of time that Felix about as was able to spend in front of a microphone because Felix about it was the best at given up the goods man. He he couldn't he would not tell he would always tell it exactly like it was and had he loved to give up the you know. Get the scoop on everything. Yeah it makes sense makes sense. Just just leave him have someone around him at all times because because everything's being recorded that's why I'm sad to see him go because he I mean he would not sugar coat anything he would just like if there was a secret. He's let it right out man he he didn't care at all breath make it happen. So there's that and then Showy Llegado by the way tested the next gen car next with a t Django next drunk or twenty twenty one prototype in Phoenix You know I don't know. Did you see the picture of it. It looks a little bit like a Mustang. I guess a little commit The bigger rims help. They do But that car that he was driving. I mean that's not going to be what they're what they're really in the end goal now and I don't even think it's got anywhere near the powertrain that they're going to have because they're talking about you know this hybrid technology and everything that carton have. That was sad plan. V8 under the hood. I'm sure looks like Knight Rider. Yeah he did say Joey Logano did say the brakes for the biggest thing getting used to because they're bigger breaks over big breaks under there. Yeah he said that was the biggest first thing it's going to be challenging So yeah we'll see how that goes we'll you know we'll see what happens and what passes in what more what's more testing they did but it looks like they're almost there those those guys were freaking out for nothing. It seemed like Yo the two things that are most encouraging me of course in the article that I was reading they were already quoting again. Steve O'Donnell or one of the Steve's one of the Nascar saying oh it's going to be the best racing ever and I'm like you guys got to stop doing that. Just stop over for Kim promising and just say we're we're hopeful that the car is going to be better. We've designed it with this intent in mind. Don't say it's going to be the best thing ever because you're going to let people down don't do that anymore But the two things that encourage me the most about it about this car Are the bigger rims that lead to more mechanical grip which means if they leave it that way then when the tire start to go the drivers are going to have to start to drive a little harder. Because he's going to make a bigger difference between the beginning getting Veron and the end of run and that puts driving back more in the driver's hands and then joy was saying how with this card. They're giving you a lot of flexibility in terms of the aero-dynamics Hammocks. There are different. Things you can do to make the car slicker or make it have more downforce and that in conjunction with the tires means you can make the car really easy to dry but slower lower really hard to drive a potentially faster and again putting the racing back in the driver's hands and this is something that they are specifically not doing with the current car car so it leaves me with a little bit of hope that there could be some. You'll like light at the end of the tunnel down. The road with this car could be but I don't see it for now until NASCAR set set up like they always do right exactly. Yeah yeah so we got when it comes to news I have. I have to get out of here all right. So the awards words partout small team drama. This was not a big small team drama season. But this is the Ron Devine award nominees bike racing for announcing a full season with Tandberg Canterbury Berryhill and not not even showing up to the track. the premium motorsports spire motorsports where motorsports situation at homestead. Trying trying to fix the first car that wasn't in the charter points. And then Levine. Family Racing Hiring Matthew Benedetto having him have a phenomenal career year and firing Matt Di Benedetto. Yeah well I think that's more of a team that's a team. What's small team drama small? But it's it's the kids like it wasn't self inflicted give saying. Hey We got Chris Bell here yeah you take him now. So who did you vote for these guys for anybody. I would say the the premium I gotta be me motor with you on that one that that's pretty like because such a bad thing. I know that's pretty big small team drama right. There man recorded three three teams that sheet in the final race. And like no one needs the Goddamn Charter anymore. It's not a thing. And apparently the difference. I was reading somewhere the differences one hundred twenty five thousand dollars. That's what that's how much extra the number twenty seven car got for being the top non-charter finisher m I guess is that then. Premium was GONNA cut a little bit of that to spy on a little bit to require. So how much did they really make off. How much potential were they made off? And what maybe maybe seventy five grand you know maybe there at the same time like they are all one entity like their drivers moved about across each other's cars like nobody's business. Yeah Yeah but that that in a slow small team drama year. That was definitely the most interesting one at the last moment moment to so good last minute win for them. I'm surprised driver of the year. Couple of different ways. You can go in this when you got a guy like Justin smelly just appearing nowhere winning at Daytona disappearing back into the shadows. You have somebody like Mattie Benedetto guy who made a switch said this is a great opportunity for me and then made the most of it Somebody like Ryan Newman made a real difference with the team that we didn't expect them to Ross chastain who you know waited didn't join the truck series until what six or seven races in didn't even have two wins count and so finishes second in the points Then also have a couple of cup drivers on opposite ends of the spectrum on this list Denny Hamlin who came into the season looking to make a change looking to to cowdery kickstart his career and absolutely did do that. Then a guy like Jimmy. Johnson new sponsor new crew chief high hopes coming in wins one of the The the Gatorade duel races or whatever they call them this year and then completely falls. Flat misses the playoffs. All of those. I think were surprised as it in different ways this year for me. It's chastain like having having what he had at the beginning of at this time last year a ride with Ganassi and fifty series after he surprised a lot of people in two thousand eighteen eighteen having that company be crazy and then having a ism still on the hook for DC filler panels. They haven't paid for true and then having having to go restart and go from. Not only that ran. I think every single race this year he did across all the series. That's across all of them. I think he had all the races he ran. He ran like eighty some races. Yeah it was a lot yes so I mean I think that's a huge surprise and and the fact back that he did what he did and was able to go ahead and Just be a big big component in Nascar be story that people just kind of actually took pressel took stock in. He ran thirty five thirty six in the Cup series. Nineteen of thirty three in the x series and then all twenty-three in the truck series the only reason random all in the series because he switched over to the truck series. Indeed that's a lot of race and no right there man. Yeah totally is over seventy races this year I'm GonNa go Newman on this. One Newman and was the biggest surprise for me. I expected him do nothing in that. Rouse racing car and fourteen top tens. That's pretty impressive Especially especially considering that. He's of the same vintage as a guy like Kansas and Kansas couldn't do crap in that thing Are the one Montoya blowing stuff up award. Not a lot of Fires in fact I couldn't find a single fire. I'm sure there was at least one or two this year in the series but couldn't really find a good one so I- nominated cominated everybody in the Daytona five hundred because they offer him wrecked at the end. Only nineteen cars finished that race at all. Only nineteen cars finished Callers Talladega flippant over The Bush brothers Italian a two second Talladega for being at the front of the field. Triggering the big one and sending sending Brennan gone flipping over And then Ricky Santos Junior in general because when it comes to not blowing up at running in the stuff he ran into just about everybody in like about about the first eight or ten races of the season everybody was in constant stenhouse at one. Point for me. I'm going give me the Bush brothers on that one could pick. I'm going with the Ryan priests trailer. Oh that's right now. They're a couple of this year. I did think about those for good. You gotta think outside the box. So his his his his holler catching on fire. And then and Yeah just everything going ablaze So not great knock creates situation right there. Well But Yeah I. I think that that's a if we're talking about blowing stuff stop that's blowing stuff. Yeah there really is far more than any of those nominees. Yeah I was disappointed. I remember one guy. Getting out of his car on pit row was smoke coming out of it but can't remember who it was this year The CAPPELLETTI award. This is a good one for either best hair or most annoying because Kyle petty both of those things epicure and ethically annoying I put down Kyle. Busch always knowing William Byron Alex Bowman as a pair. I nominated them because really they have like like your stereotypical typical millennial hair. They got a little like full hockey thing going. They're not really full house. Gets more the flip like the flip going on Ryan Blaney because of all the drivers in the Cup series. He came the closest to being able to have his own petty ponytail And then Austin Dillon because I mean the guy's is hair like seriously takes his helmet off and it's just like literally there's an entire bottle of product in it at all times with wood. Oh very very nice. He's got he's got the. He's Catholic the deadly combination. He is I would say best hair. He's got no no no not best he's got. He's got the quintessential the Central Hawk and on top of that the most even more knowing the petty yes very much so because all agree with with Kyle Petty Sometimes Oh sure I always always grew richer. Petty but I'll agree with comedy. Sometimes I never go with rutledge. Would I think you've kicked my ass on that picked by the way they try What are the year victory of the season for two thousand nineteen Denny Hamlin in the Daytona five hundred coming in after the J D Gibbs thing and going up winning that race race in the car that jd put together for him as pretty epic Kevin Harvick awesome. Victory in New Hampshire. Done that was his first one of the year by the way twenty races in and he beat out any Hamlin to do it. seconded announced him on the scene. Kurt Busch incredible battle between him and his brother in Kentucky those that was a big one. chase Elliott getting. Chevy's first win of the year In early in the season of course most popular driver winning races big one a blaming Blaney Talladega photo-finish with renewed I thought was great and then of course Cobb Bush winning at homestead in in the final team which is something. He almost never does coming up clutch to win his way to the championship. Do you like those like anything else. You like something like Ryan Ryan Blaney just because of how good it was and and it was Talladega moment. It was a big going against two guys who one guy who who's budding superstar one guy who's kind of in his victory lap as it were. I thought it was a great race and I thought it was a good finish and remember. He came back He. He'd started on the front row and then he had dropped back to fourth or so and on literally coming out of the last turn. He made that run to win. That race was absolutely incredible I'm giving it the Hamlin. Only because of the story I mean that was the like perfect moment for someone to win the biggest race in Nascar car after that entire situation So you know definitely make for a great story to start. The season saw that when the best absolutely Even though I'm not a big fan of Hamlin in general Driver of the air. Oh they're they're only two awards. Left there the big ones van driver of the year and this could be anybody but here. My suggestions ends up for nominees. Kurt Busch Kabul Rather Second Championship Morton. Junior moves teams to win. Seven races finishes Second Matt Craft and winning his third truck series championship and potentially potentially putting himself into the Nascar Hall of fame with that effort. Ross chastain I thought it was incredibly impressive impressive I really think that that movie trucks may have revived his entire career. It wasn't it was kind of faltering at that point Tyler Radic back toback xfinity the championships for whatever that's worth we've seen what that's been worth for recent back-to-back winners and then co Koster getting to the Cup series despite not winning xfinity but he he had eight eight wins in the expenditures. Pretty Damn impressive like any of those guys or somebody else. Do you think did the best job all season long tether rettig and not just because of back to back titles Acrobat titles with two different teams. Yeah true he improved. Vastly move into our CR from A junior motorsports I got four. More wins had seven more top. A top ten's It was it. was you trim. I think it was a big. It was a big situation relation for him and I think it proved that he can adapt and adjust as necessary. Yeah you know I'm gonNA give it to. It's tough because Kyle came up a big in the final race after he sucked all playoffs long any when the regular season title probably the best driver all year. Long I would say I'M GONNA I'm GonNa like flip put on its head. I'm GonNa go with that craft and on this one even though I wasn't a big fan of him winning the way he did fact of the matter is like literally we might have seen him win his way into into the hall of fame right there in that race absolutely. Yeah and that's a big moment. That's big moment for somebody so So I think he definitely solidified his place in NASCAR history to Timpson struck series Okay so we have done that but three that that's pretty good. Second second highest average. I'm going to give it to him. And then the most prestigious ward of the evening the Gary Carpenter Award for not showing up and I cannot find too many quality nominees for this list. But I'm sure that you'll have somebody the jumps off list here I only have two nominees so far. penske racing y well those guys look dominant early. They they were as good as Joe Gibbs racing early five wins early in the season them all went away neither neither of R. N.. Another three guys got into the championship for and I said that. Nobody one after as fifteen Michigan but blonde Talladega too so I think that was the only only win after race. Fifteen of the season was blaming Talladega. Win But none of those guys made in the championship. Four when at the beginning of the season look like they could be legitimately two or three. They have been the Joe Gibbs racing this year. But we're GonNa do and then Jimmy. Johnson took his half of that split to the playoffs. Johnson can get anything going he. He wasn't even the highest finishing of the non-playoff Drivers Daniels. War is beat him and he got fired right. I think that's my pick Jimmy Johnson. Really interesting he was pooped this year. Isn't that great a little bit off board Ricky Stenhouse Junior That'd be good one. Only one top five this year the only headlines. He may work for running into people exactly three top. Ten's he didn't do much. He finished three three top. Ten's Yeah Holy Crap Dude I mean it wasn't a great season for him. It didn't show up but it got him a job at the lower kind of a lateral move over to J T G. But I mean if you're a guy who was such a everyone. Everyone was hyped up about his His his ability to run well at plate tracks and stuff like that didn't happen. Yeah all he did was wrecked people at at the plate tracks yet piss people off because he knew he is job was in trouble and not not even on Fourth of July weekend. Seventeen seventy six. Yeah exactly where the champion champions. Oh God that was one of the worst moments ever in the sport by the way so embarrassing going to watch it right now and it was kind of drunk I think he might have been the obviously didn't do a pee test for him after he got out of the car. So who was that semi final comments. Now I gotta get going. So let's go there. It is so congratulations to all of the winners and the losers for the evening and the next week we'll talk more about the story that's guy who was was holding onto and maybe have another update.

EP 2014: The O'Reilly Auto Parts Pit Reporters

"They start here. We go history in the making Green Green. Thanks to virtual racing. Nascar is truly the only game in town. Hi My name is Brad Gillian. Welcome to the O'Reilly auto parts pit reporters my co host this week. Doug Rice from the performance racing network also joining us. Jeff look from the Athletic Brent McMillan the normal host of the show and we'll also hear from Alexis Erickson from prn. It's the O'Reilly auto parts bit reporters on the performance racing network presented by O'Reilly auto parts your professional parts people. Now here's your host Brett McMillan and welcome once again to another edition of the O'Reilly auto parts reporters we will be talking with Brett McMillan coming up here very very shortly and we've got a lot of ground to cover this week for sure we're coming off of another. I racing event at Texas Motor speedway. Where a great feel-good story with Timmy? Hill driving into victory lane. We're headed to Bristol Motor speedway this weekend Which is going to be another one to Check out what would have been the food city five hundred but now we're going to have a little abbreviated version of that in the virtual world with Nascar on Fox which is going to be a great thing as well right now joined by Doug. Rice the president of the performance racing network and also Alexis Erickson Co host appearance. Fast talk which you can hear every Monday night On Great PR and affiliates at Seven PM EASTERN. You can also go pr dot com and hear all of our programming as well and Alexis. I want to start with you. You know the great thing. Is You watch any normal sports show on television right now. Be It Cable show or be at the local news all they have to talk about his NASCAR and I- racing in the virtual world and the great thing is a lot of people who typically talk about stick and ball are celebrating the fact that we truly have live sports on TV. What can this do for our sport? Moving forward I love seeing all the clips of our drivers on sportscenter and hitting these platforms. That they don't normally get to hit And I think it's a great moment for our sport. You know obviously not great circumstances how we arrived at this moment but certainly Us being able to make the best out of a bad situation. I racing puts us in a very unique situation. That other sports don't have You know you mentioned before the show we've talked about it you know a running back can't go play madden and still be able to do exactly what he does on the field when you race. I racing you sit in a seat. You hold a steering wheel you press pedals with your feet. You manipulate a clutch. You do all of the same things that you would normally do inside of a race car just in a virtual world and the fact that we have Virtually all of our You know pro athletes doing this and we're able to put it on a platform like Fox sports. It's it's catapulted us into you. Know really you know crossing over into a a sector of of media that we haven't been in before because of the fact that we are able to capitalize on this. Doug Rice I think it's funny to Alexis mentioned sportscenter. We're in concord with Carolina. So we hear a lot of the Charlotte sports talk stations. They don't normally talk NASCAR even here in Charlotte. They're talking Hornets in panthers in other sports. A lot of collegiate their lead story for the last two weeks on Mondays has been who won the NASCAR virtual race so making the best out of a bad situation it is thrust NASCAR back into the limelight in a very very positive way and I think our sport along with other automobile racing sports are uniquely qualified to fill that void and there is a huge void right now. Because it is we are such addicted. We are so addicted to sports in this country that now. They're feeding that little you know. I'm curious to and this Kinda goes to Alexis point so when we watched the Texas Motor speedway which at some point. We're going to get to do this year We see cars going around the racetrack. Now we know they're human beings and drivers who as NASCAR fans we know their personalities that are working on that during a broadcast. We're seeing in car shots of drivers and things like that will in the virtual world. We still see a race car. We get a different version of inane car shot and it could be in. Someone's Living Room. It could be as elaborate as what Denny Hamlin has set up or as simple as what our race winner. Timmy Hill has set up. So you know realistically Alexis. I don't know how you feel for me because of that. It really is like watching a normal Nascar race except you can tell. The cars are animated. Although Gosh it looks pretty real. I mean not only you know. Does it give us that? Normalcy that we're looking for but also it allows us to go behind the scenes like we've never really been able to do before I mean like you mentioned we have all these different on twitch you know obviously you have the Fox broadcast where you're you're hearing from Jeff and Mike and and they had clint boyer as their in car. You know analysts than he's he's chatting with them while he's racing you know it was coming on and off pit road and he's doing all these things and he's analyzing it and that's given us great behind the scenes coverage but you're also able to see all these different twitch feeds of what the drivers are doing they're tweeting in between breaks cautions. They're sending tweeting from their car. That only happened. One time and then it was forbidden. You Know Brad Keselowski. Many years ago in the real world. But they're able to do that. And so the content amount of content that is is coming at US during these races. And even you know in the off days when they are on their rigs and they're testing in their you know their joking and it's bring a lot of humor you know into the situation which. I think is much needed right now and I'm I for one am very grateful for it. I was lost for two hours this Sunday. In in the virtual world I bought into it. My wife and I are yelling at the TV. Or the end of the race When Timmy hills up there battling at at at first it was William Byron and then Ryan Preece and I thought okay it is work because they got me emotionally involved and I think that's the key to sports so you know what made me think of this when you said that Doug was so yesterday Daniel swore as actually got thrown out of the race for some moves that he had the alert why he got black because he he wrecked a couple of guys on the track but then afterwards and to be honest with you. I can't recall my mind. Was that he wrecked but he did. I racing virtually park tim yesterday And then after the race you know. He's on twitter with his dog. And he's like. Oh you know. My dog apologizes for you. Know the accidents that happen on the track. And so you know everybody's having fun with it they're able to To smile about it in a time like this when we need escape and we need to be able to you know. Put those real world things aside. This is is transcending so many different areas and allowing us to do that that We really grateful for it. I think it's been pretty awesome and I like I just the fact. That NASCAR is on television. Nascar is on the map. Nascar is being talked about now. Nascar is also done a great job. They've made the winning drivers available. Nascar on Fox has done a fantastic job you know. They upped the game from the homestead virtual race to the Texas virtual race at Texas really did feel much more like a normal race weekend. But I'll start with you. Doug Rice moving forward. We are going to get back on the track with the real cars and everything. I do think things have been really promoted very well. But how does NASS CAR? I hate to use the word. Capitalized with the phrase take advantage of because people look at that sometimes in a negative way during these times but the fact of the matter is is that they're doing a great thing for us by offering this to to to To all of us. How do they take it and grow it moving forward? I think they've done a marvelous job of not over hyping. This it has grown. I believe organically through social media and people following along that way knowing when when the auxiliary races are running like the one that Alexis husband participates in. So I think a lot of it has been done without a great deal of outward hype by Fox M. Bhai Nascar and so I applaud them for that. Yeah there will be a transition period going back in to real racing. I don't know how that's going to work. I suspect that those first few races are going to be ran in front of zero fans. That's just my opinion. I think that's what will happen. But I think keep playing like you're doing it and I've got to applaud NASCAR because the winner of the first to virtual races. We've had on this show. It's hard to get drivers for interviews. Folks it really is. They have busy schedules. They're flying all around fact is they're not doing anything anymore than anybody else's nowadays so they've made themselves amenable and we've talked any. Hamlin and Timmy. Hill yeah I mean I agree one hundred percent with what Doug saying I think You know just keeping an open mind. We've already seen from week. One where they race at homestead and they had to resets if you will to Texas yesterday where they were only given one you know. Nasr car keeping an open mind with. I racing analyzing the things that happen and making changes. Where necessary which they've already done. I think Keeping our pro athletes engaged in. What we're doing is is very key because I think they're the reason why a lot of people are identifying with this. Because they know those drivers. I think you know they've been trying to get the the NASCAR series presented by coca-cola off the ground And it has been running for quite some time and it has a audience but nowhere on the same level as the numbers that we're seeing for this because people identify with these drivers that they know that they see on the track. You know on Sundays that they've been following for years so if we can get some people interested in the drivers in other series because honestly if you WANNA watch racing. I racing has races and before all this happened every single night anytime. We talk all the time literally all the time. If you WANNA watch racing there are races that you can watch twenty four hours a day seven days a week Jimmy Johnson in the indycar race from Virtual Watkins Glen on Saturday. How did he do? He finished fourteenth. Starting like twenty nine. He's respectable Oh by the way sage. Karam won the race So Alexis your husband is racing in and before we go to break here. He did a great job last week in the replacements race which was run at Kansas speedway. Running in the top five until chase briscoe dumped him. But there's not a replacement's race this we are not but next week our and this is one thing I love about I racing. There is a replacements race next week and we get to go to track where. Nascar used to run in the xfinity series. But heck we're not even running NASCAR stock. I mean honestly the sky's the limit when it comes to. I racing like you're mentioning. They're gonNA ron next week. At myrtle. Beach in St Stock Cars. And then they're going to go back again two weeks from that and I'm not sure exactly what cup track. They're going around it but they're going to run a cup tracking cup cars. It's the same series but they're switching back and forth between the top arson street stocks and I mean honestly. That's what's so cool about this and I think you know in the future. We've talked about how they're having a moment and all of these things and I'm interested to know people's opinions on whether or not you know we'll they'll be able to keep up this momentum even after we go back real world racing But there are so many opportunities for off season racing you know when NASCAR's not racing on regular tracks declaration offseason are having a champion series or a powder puff series or something where you switch back and forth between you know an indycar race one week for the series in the next week. They're running you know a stock car and then the next week a dirk harming. There's so many different things that that we can do. That can be done. That just could hold the interest level. You have virtual Iraq in a way that you never had Iraq before so that'd be interesting all right. Well good deal well. We'll get a quick break out of the way when we come back.

Able to join us in the virtual way via skype. Thank you very much. How you doing? Brad good to see you doing good. So you guys as well all right. Let me pose the question to you. And we got a lot of ground we're gonNA cover but but quite honestly Brit You know having a been a sports broadcaster for your entire adult working career How important it is to get any type of airtime on any type of sport show right now. Nascar car's got it all. How do you think this is going to help position the sport moving forward? I think it's really helped the sport a lot. We talk about Brad when you start looking at the fact that it's the only thing that has really new stuff to talk about at this point in time the. Nfl has a little bit going on with some free agency at this point in time but beyond that the I. Racing has really been just a great thing for Nascar and what Nascar has going for. It is it's a new visual at your TV person. It's something to show that's brand new the the NFL doesn't have that. You're pulling up old video of a free agent that you may aside but beyond that this new it's fresh and it's the only thing out there at this point. Yeah a lot of fun and and very entertaining as well So now here we are. We're sitting around and we kinda knows that Last week was very dynamic Britain. You know being here in North Carolina. We started out mid week with Mecklenburg County. Which is where downtown Charlotte is. They went under a stay at home. Order that got expanded to Cabrera's county which is where Charlotte Motor speedway is but not just Charlotte Motor speedway. It's were Hendrick. Motorsports is were Roush. Fenway racing is where the Nascar Tech Center is. It's where Stewart Haas racing is at many other teams as well. Ardell county which is say Joe Gibbs racing Team penske and a lot of. They weren't under that same order until the entire state Win that same kind of order now Brett. We know that NASCAR has already put You know basically the hammered down. No wind tunnel testing. You can't do this during this time and you can't do that during that time. Do you feel because things had been kinda dynamic as to what some teams could do based on geographically where they were and what seems couldn't do should there be more or should nascar just let the flow of things happen is the flow of things are happening. All I think NASCAR is going to have to wait and see. I mean you know the governor North Carolina's but the whole state on stay at home until the end of April at this point in time so at this point I think this whole thing is still developing. I mean it happened so fast. No two weeks ago leading up to Atlanta things. Were changing so fast. We saw the Nascar we saw in basketball and hockey is is things just happened so fast now. I think we're kind of in a wait and see mode to see how quickly we reach a peak if you've gotten close to the peak that's what we don't know where this whole Copa Nineteen. So I think we've got to kind of sit and wait and see I know NASCAR's probably this point in time trying to work on some kind of schedule to see. They like to get those seven races in that they're talking about. Do we need to extend this even further? We need to start looking at you. Know Martinsville ruined the All star race and the six hundred. Are these now on the table as possibly being postponed as well so I mean all this is something I think on the table at this point in time the Nascar's got to be thinking about but really you know as much as we like to make decisions and start to plan ahead and you guys both know me. I'm a planner. I'd like to start planning but at this point in time. I think kind of sit back and wait is probably the best tack from what I have heard without getting into particulars. Nascar already has like three different alternatives schedules depending when we get back to some degree of normalcy. And you know it's funny philosophically. We think our normal lives have to be accentuated with exciting things like going to a movie or taking a vacation to get away from boredom. I think we would all be really happy. Just being able to go back to work and leading our normal mundane lies but I do think Nascar has laid out several different contingencies and a lot of this bread as you pointed out accurately is beyond their control it's up to governments and municipalities now to tell you what they're going to allow you to do but I i. I feel fairly confident. We will see races without fans before things all ramp back up and that poses a good question to Doug because right now we are seeing races without fans in the virtual world. Now granted the Gr- The stands were packed in Texas For the O'Reilly auto parts one twenty-five justice they were packed at homestead Miami speedway but we all know I mean we're racing in the virtual world. Is it possible now? Look the best experience ever. Nothing can ever replace the at track experience but does the fact that we're doing this right now in virtual world make it a little bit easier. If that's how we have to ease back into it absolutely. I think it's it's a conditioning program. Just like working out getting more and more each time you go to the gym. I think this is a a a first logical step to that and I'm curious Brat. What is your take on what you've seen so far. We're two of these virtual races in. How how do you perceive them? I think it's an incredibly impressive to sit there and look at it because it looks so real when you're sitting there watching it and the thing that struck me at the end of the race yesterday. Is You know what what's The xfinity you know? Slogan this point names remained here. Well being made right now in the eye racing series. I mean how many people have Timmy Hill. Garrett Smith lied on their radar you know Ryan got a bunch of pub. Yesterday matter of fact I think it was Ryan that That Daniels wars actor when he got park yesterday but these guys are getting some attention. They wouldn't get normally now. He was interesting because there were a couple of people tweeted after the race. Yesterday that you know. Look what Timmy Hill could do. If he got into regular you know they got an inequality right well. Hemi Hill is shown. We've seen timmy. Hill has some good races but yet. Who's one of the guys that struggled in this series? Kyle Busch No. You don't think anybody Kyle Busch's ability as a racecar driver but okay I racing. He's been a guy that has not performed particularly well. What does that mean absolutely nothing? But I think it has given Timmy Hill Garrett Smith -ly a chance to get on people's radars and maybe they'll know people look for these guys when they get a chance to get back out there on the you know in real cars on real racetracks and maybe give a little bit more attention. You know what when we come back here on the auto parts of reporters. I WanNa flip the topic that we were just talking about now. The possibility of still being entertained by a NASCAR race if it has to be run without fans what happens when they do open the grandstands again. What has this downtime done for your attitude in getting out of the house? We'll talk about that when we come back right after this. Are you paying too much for Term Life Insurance? There's a tremendous price war among the major term life. Companies rates have dropped dramatically in the past two years for example. A man aged forty five non-tobacco user one million dollars of coverage is only seventy five dollars per month level for the next ten years or a man aged fifty non-tobacco user can buy a half million dollars of coverage for a monthly premium of only one hundred ten dollars guaranteed not to change for the next twenty years. That's right level rate for twenty years. And if you're a smoker we have great rates for you as well at the term life line. We specialize in policies of a half million dollars and above. So if you're looking for new or replacement term life insurance call right now for a free quote rates and availability may vary by state sample Rick preferred non-tobacco underwriting exam required to qualify eight hundred.

And then they get taken out before the end anyway so There's there's definitely nowhere to hide for us as a race. I'm not good at right around the back me. I can't do it.

Welcome back to the O'Reilly auto parts fear reporters Brad Gillian for Brad McMillan. Who is joining us now from his home here in the Charlotte Area Doug Rice Co hosting as well? Jeff is going to be joining US coming up here within the next five or ten minutes or so but bread. I WanNa ask you this. I don't know how The Corona virus in the stay at home orders. All of that has actually changed. What your habits might be moving forward. I know there's a lot of my habits that I think will be changed moving forward in that. I actually do feel compelled to go outside more which is kind of strange. But what is this going to do to a live? Sports Fan Base. I mean are we going to be cooped up long enough where we're going to have to get out and and and like? I'm ready to go. I'm ready to get to the racetrack. But what do you think this is GonNa do to a fan base who may have gotten complacent to just sit in their living room and watch it on TV. I think people are going to be itching to get outside. As soon as they can. And to get to events now the flip side of that is and I feel badly for the people. Who've lost their jobs you read their salaries cut way back. I mean that that's going to be the flip side of this whole thing. I think people are GONNA BE ITCHING TO GET OUT AND GET TO EVENTS. Get the movies get to sporting events as soon as they possibly can? The flip side is are. Are they going to be able to afford to do that immediately? As soon as this thing over with. So that's going to be like Yin and Yang of this whole thing was all over with Doug Rice. I think folks you're going to want to get back out to do. Just what Brad said. They'RE GONNA want to go to the movies. They're going to want to go out and have a meal at a restaurant and go out and maybe have a cocktail with it. 'cause by wife and I were talking the other day and I know it sounds totally self is the thing I miss. The most has been able to say. Let's go out and grab dinner Where we can. But you've got to go to the takeout window and bring it home right and that experience but I think there is going to be a lot of pent up energy that people are going to want to exercise and part of that is going to be getting back to live sporting events. Yeah I agree I mean I look at it and there's so many different things I think about that. You take for granted when you have time you know I even look at it and think to myself and no offense to you know sometimes you just ended up spending extra time at the office because you have time and I've thought to myself maybe I need to make sure I get my stuff here done more efficiently so I can get home and enjoy some of that time. Maybe there are places that I it's. It's strange when you can't do something how much you want to do something you know. I've seen some memes on the Internet of people who you know before Corona virus. Everyone sitting at home on their phone. After Corona virus people are walking around the parks. You know let's hope these great stadiums that we have NASCAR races in our filled up because of that. Because wow I do I WANNA get out. Well I agree and I find it go I find it. I find it ironic or doug you. You're the expert or coincidental that the one time the one time we can't get out and get around gases. The cheapest has been in forty years. Well I saw a I'll paraphrase this. I'll clean it up. Said it. The gases. Cheapest it's been forty years but there's nowhere to go. Yeah airplane flights dirt cheap nowhere to fly. I feel like I'm stuck in an latest Morissette Song Right but that being an ironic. It is but at a certain point. You know we're going to want to get out and and I would encourage people I know a lot of speedway's are look. They haven't stopped planning. You know when when you think about this. The crowd sizes that we have these NASCAR races rival and surpass that of the Super Bowl. And no one ever questions. What do you do to get ready for the Super Bowl? You just understand that. It's the big event. Will these racetracks have that? And they're continuing to get ready for these big events now granted until NASCAR puts out a schedule. There's still a lot of unknowns right now and there's you know I mean look you can think of all kinds of crazy ideas of what can happen. But the fact of the matter is too. We know we're going back racing for sure that I look forward to seeing a schedule out bread. I look forward to seeing what a summer could be filled with whether you can make it to the race track or not. Hopefully you can but man. I think it's GonNa be pretty busy and and I've got a huge appetite for that right now. Well the one that's been announced in the last week. I just think is going to be fantastic and I hope that everything opens up that we get to do. This is what they've announced that. Indianapolis you know with the Indy. Five hundred getting postponed to August. Now the Indy Grand Prix being scheduled as the same week in is the brickyard. Where on Saturday? You're going to get to see the indy cars and expensive cars on the same track the same day. I think that's going to be fantastic. And I think getting for both indy-car fans and NASCAR fans again to see the same both series on the track the same day. I think it's going to be just. I'm so stoked to see that. I think it's GONNA be fantastic. I would agree with you for sure. In fact we're GONNA take a deeper dive on that as well. I'm glad you brought it up because I did want to get your opinions on that And appreciate you joining us on your show again. I know it feels awkward to me but It is great to hear your voices always. Brit appreciate you guys. Hold down the fort and keeping things moving forward hope. Both of your families are safe and and sound and healthy and continue to stay that way.

Gilly in for Brent McMillan Doug Rice the president of PR and and of course the host fast talk and the anchor of all our performance racing network broadcasts joining me as well and on our hotline from the athletic fantastic Nascar reporter and a guy that you definitely need to be following on social media. Which I'm sure if you're on social media and a Nascar Fan you are Jeff Gluck and Jeff. First of all just want to ask you how you're doing. How are things with you in the family up there in Denver? Hey we're doing okay. It's good to hear your voices they're Messina guys in person for sure this this Getting out On the rogue and now to Our our normal life our normal routine I was looking at my press pass from Texas and being like I wish I was there. You know. It's it's It's just such crazy times right now. I feel like the walls are closing here a little bit. We have Eighteen month old at home here so She can't take her to the playground. Can't go to see the grandparents. You know all the normal stuff. So it's it's It's tough that raising the same boat right now and thankfully we have our health. So I'm I'm not gonNA complain too much. Yeah very well said well you know There's a lot of ground that we're going to cover for. Sure but Brent McMillan was just on with US talking about this. I want to continue the conversation which I did. Want to ask you about this With a lot of things also comes opportunity in his toughest. Some things are for some people right now and you know certainly feel for everyone. We've all been affected in some way shape or form. This is also creating opportunity in our sport and wall. We don't know anything at least as we sit here today. Taping this show for the pit reporters about NASCAR's upcoming schedule. We do know some things about indy cars upcoming schedule and the July fourth brickyard. Four hundred weekend Now because of all this is going to become the first INDYCAR NASCAR Cup series weekend. We knew that the xfinity series was going to run on the road course. Part of the month of May festivities indie have been an indycar race on the road course the week before the Indianapolis five hundred that Indycar road race moves to the July fourth. Nascar weekend the Cup series. Of course we'll still race on the two and a half Mile Oval at the racetrack. But Jeff Gluck you know you talk about Taking a tough situation but creating an opportunity that a lot of people were curious about. I can't think of a better one right now. At least from what we've heard. What do you think well? I'm I'm I hope that that will happen. I hope that's a possibility I'm definitely excited whenever it gets back going to the amount of creativity it's going to take the pool all this off. It's going to be amazing and I'm excited to see everybody. Rise the challenge and all the different ideas that come out of it I I hope that the the double header something that happens and I hope that's far enough out. I guess I'm I'm almost like a. I don't want to get my hopes too much up yet. Just so we we see what happens and see. That's really going to be a reality. Because I mean I. It's it's up to say how much everything how long this will go on. But you know there. There's all these things we've been hearing about for years. It could happen whether it's the mid week racism doubleheaders. Like you're saying you know with Any cars well or or just to nascar racing weekend and and and it always seems to be some roadblock or yeah yeah. We're thinking about that. Well we might do that. And now everybody's going to be forced into it so I think that that's going to be really exciting to see how they pull that off and it's GonNa make for once everything gets back going. It's going to be such a jam packed season It's GonNa be fun to see how everybody executes it and is able to do that in a short amount of time and all the challenges and I know one thing. I won't be complaining though I mean you know. Sometimes you know the schedule comes out and go. Oh Man. Why are they going this place? Why go this place after this fight? I'm just going to be like great cool. Whatever I'm in you know 'cause I think it's one of those things where we take anything right now you know. I think this is going to be an opportunity to override objections to change. I Know Jeff just reference that a moment ago but I feel like NASCAR's a lot of different groups they have their own silos. It's the owners and there's the drivers in the race tracks and the media partners. I think all of those folks are GonNa have to come out of their silos and say okay. We're going to agree to do this. We're going to run three races in one week we're going to have a double-header at this track and everybody is going to have to play along we may have to shorten the race. I think the creativity the license of creativity has gotten vastly expanded for when we finally do get back to some semblance of normal. But it's GonNa be a new normal. It's not going to be the normal that it was last year. You know I've always been a fan of anything motor sports. I mean hack back when. Espn used to have swamp buggy racing On a Saturday morning on the weekends I watched all of that. I I love it all but we do know Doug that at times The Motor sports fan base has been separated in that You know the NASCAR side looked at road racing and said Oh that's the wine and cheese crowd and the road racing crowd said. Look those taxicab drivers. You know running around and Blah Blah Blah. Things have come together a whole lot. More heck the dirt and asphalt crowd you know pitted against each other but but now if we can see things you open up even more and really all of us collectively come together as human beings even more as well. Discontinue to kick that door wide open especially. If we're starting to see crossover on the same weekend I think it does. I felt like I spent an entire month. This you're talking about the Chili Bowl Two years ago the Chili Bowl was something got at. Wendy's now this huge event that takes place once a year and and I feel like a lot of the barriers between NASCAR INDYCAR got knocked down after Nascar started racing at Indianapolis and I feel like that opened up. The is it did for me. Personally I am. I went there went to the museum. I went okay. I get it You know and I do feel like more and more and more fans of one discipline now have signed up on the other side. You Know Jeff With everything that you've done in your coverage of motor sports as well and of course now with the athletic you've had the opportunity D- across disciplines even in the two world world with supercross. In all of that. What do you think does this Continue to open the door for someone who might have been a fan of one discipline to now. All of a sudden be introduced to another discipline that they might have resisted in the past. Well I think first of all when racing gets back going in general are sports get back going. People are going to be so eager to watch anything and everything I mean. You're like oh Okay Wednesday night you know. This is on Thursday night is on. I'm in like we're we will been deprived for so long of what we all want to see That I think that they'll be such an eagerness to just be there and watch and everything so I think people will be open to consuming whatever they can get their hands on Because it's just GonNa be such a welcome sight In in every way I mean honestly like the last few years I haven't really been to into baseball Watching too much baseball except for the playoffs like regular season. But I tell you what even sitting there watching a baseball game right now. Sounds amazing. I would love to do that so I think. I think. It's a great opportunity for people to see new things and trying to things and to Doug's point earlier as well you know. I think that you know twenty twenty one next year was already going to be a huge year of change and I think some of those changes were being debated in terms of like okay. Should we really pull the trigger on this to bold you know? Should we really go this far? Now you you. There's a great chance to experiment with some things and try. Somethings because you have to and then you can say okay now. This was actually really successful. Let's do more of this Let's let's be. Let's feel more confident about implementing this kind of thing in the future so You know I think. A lot of interesting things will come out obviously. This is not a great situation right. I mean this is. I wouldn't say this is a positive to for us to all be in this together but you know you do see certain things coming out of it for instance. I mean like you know with the IRA stuff. Which I know. We'll talk about but I mean who would have ever thought that that would be you know on TV this year. And you know I saw great tweet from Steve Leuven der where he pulled the clip of Mike Joy Saying and now we go live to land and castles basement. I didn't expect this in two thousand twenty so You know there's a lot of interesting things that will come out of this by necessity and I think that everything in motor sports have to adjust and we'll see the results of that You know for years to come. You know while we're talking about this Real Quick Jeff. you mentioned like things that we were looking at Technically this show actually has its first airing on a Wednesday with rally auto parts pit reporters April first all right so we we had heard initially that Steve Phelps the president of NASCAR. I hope to have the two thousand twenty one scheduled out until April first for you. Do you think before we look at a twenty twenty one schedule. Some of these things that might be tried based on necessity. We should try these before. They put out a new schedule. Moving forward why I just think that the the new schedule has had to take a total back seat now. I just don't see how it just seems so impossible right now to that they could have everything buttoned up for next year. When this year is still so much in flux I mean you know as as of our conversation right now they still want to try to raise it at Martinsville on May Ninth. That seems increasingly difficult. I don't know if they're going to be able to do that so you know that. Should they have one contingency plan for that and then if that doesn't happen you know have another one another one so I'm sure that's taken up so much their time right now that I don't see how they could even be that far down the road Where they thought they were going to be on on twenty twenty one and as a result. I think everybody gives him a pass and says hey you know what if you don't put it out till August or whatever we can all deal right because we understand and like you're saying it also gives them a reason or an excuse to try things and say hey. Does this work. And then they can put out the schedule or just two things What THEY WANNA do based on that? I agree with what you're saying. It's a it's another opportunity and I also think people like how could you? How COULD PEOPLE BE UPSET? I guess if you know just like just like with a new car I mean if that ends up getting you know. They were on such a tight schedule for that already. If that ended up getting delayed somehow I think people are gonNA understand right. I mean if you've ever going to say oh you know how could you not run that for the Daytona five hundred next year okay? Well there's no testing there's no development like how are you supposed to build these cars so everything? I think that could happen. I hope people give them a pass. I know I will be because you know. I just don't see where the options are again. A lot of this is at a necessity are Jeff. If you wouldn't mind hanging on for one one more short segment when we come back with love to talk about how virtual racing could potentially have an impact on the silly season.

Reilly auto parts pit reporters book background Gillian for Bread McMillan along with Doug Rice and Jeff Gluck from the athletic joining us on the hotline. And Jeff. I'll I'll dive right back into. We do appreciate your time here today. Timmy Hill on Sunday. Had A great win. At Virtual Texas in the eye racing event we've Seen Garrett Smith Lee runwell Landon Castle also a top four. Finish your in that race. What do you think if we get into a NASCAR SILLY SEASON Do some of these drivers who have had to run for underfunded teams enhance ended up finishing some races laps down. Do they maybe get a look that they wouldn't have gotten had we not had this? I think it depends on how they do going forward because You know obviously it was. It was a great win for to me Hill. You know national. Tv and he goes out. beats everybody You know all the cup stars at naturally cool and he's you know the unofficial points leader. I know they're not really keeping standings. But if you look at the too racy done so far He's done quite well in both of them. So you know that's great but I think he's going to need more of that you know if he if he is able to go out and do this. You know six more times and keep running top five every week and all these guys you know. Kabul is getting better and Kevin Harvick joins and You know the regulars and all that stuff to Um and he's still going out and is able to run quite well. I think people go. Dang you know to me hills pretty good and of course. It's I racing and it's not the real life thing it's different and we've heard guys say that Because you know these these I racing. Pro Guys You know they can go up all the all the drivers but because they're on the service so often So there are some differences in the skill set. But the fact that that to me. He'll can do this and it is realistic I think it's it's definitely enough to make people at least take a second look at especially because you know it's not like he was a guy who came into the sport and got a chance and then you know he didn't run well then he lost his right or something like that. He's never had a good ride. You know he's always been one of these guys who's trying to make more out of his equipment and you know hey if he qualified twenty fifth of the thirty fifth car. That's great for him. You know You know he so I if maybe this you know with all this stuff it's still to come. Maybe sort of sorts out and he and he's able to move up to you. Know sort of like a go fast racing type thing if if cordless joy gets better ride or something You Know I. I don't think it's out of the picture. the question at all especially if he keeps running. Well I do feel like there's a tremendous Sifi element into this. That that could be the underpinnings for a movie. The guy leaves the real world and he goes into the virtual world and then he's King Kong Nascar version of ready player. Yes thank you. Go ahead to question at a question. For Jeff. Jeff. I know you're very socially plugged into a huge percentage of the NASCAR FAN base. What kind of feedback are you getting? Now that we're two of these virtual races in well I think people are very positive about it You know. There's a lot of people like me who were skeptics of ever thinking that You know e- NASCAR could be a form of entertainment. Well now everybody's you know we're we're all desperate for something to watch and we're all looking for something to watch and it is entertaining and I think that you know Fox has done a great job with balancing sort of the racing element serious element and the fun element. Having Clint Boyer in the studio or going to go into the drivers in their homes. And then you have. You know the driver's interacting on twitter and making jokes about it out and saying his dogs driving and all that stuff. I mean that's that's fun it's entertaining and I think people are very very happy to have some sort of distraction right now. They're happy to have anything. That makes them feel normal for a little bit. And you know I mean I was listening to the The Post Winters Conference Paul. And you know Timmy. Hill sort of having to defend a bump and run on William Byron. And you know I'm thinking about it for a minute and the ethics of it and I'm getting totally you know lost in thought and not thinking about The virus stuff at all. And how welcome is that right now? I mean you know. My wife was sitting on the couch and he said you know if you if you just close your eyes you just listen to mike joy you know it sounds like a real real race and that's something that everybody needs right now so. I think people are very very happy to have that opportunity and you know again I. I don't take that seriously the the the IRA stuff. I mean it's supposed to be fun. It's a made for TV thing. It's entertaining so you know there's glitches or whatever where people drive rather cars or something. Sometimes that's fine. Whatever I just think it's it's cool. I'm I'm really happy to have to talk about and from a from a sports writing standpoint to you know I'm still writing about that. I'm still covering this like a regular race. You know I'm here talking to you guys about it. You know I have talked about on my post-race podcast stuff like that. So I'm grateful to cover where my other sports colleagues at the athletic. They have nothing right now to cover. So we're we're lucky position. Yeah I wanted to ask you about that while we still had just a quick minute here. Jeff because I know you and Jordan Bianchi and a lot of great people are still putting out wonderful content and with the athletic for who you right. What can folks look forward to right now? If they want to go check you out well I'm still trying to keep everything as normal as I can. So I'm still doing like twelve questions and things like that but I also have a new thing called quarantine questions where I've been checking in with people Who are all in the same boat as we are you know? And what's their life like right? Now how close they run the COM- How close did they come to running out of the paper? What are their netflix recommendations? Stuff like that. So Almost Ryan Blaney last week and he took a lot of time and was very nice about answering the question. So I appreciate that. So that's GONNA be coming out every week. I'm just trying to keep my routine as much as I can so You know to podcasts a week at least three things.

Sunday with the performance racing network. We have our second classic broadcast last week. We did the two thousand race from Texas Motor speedway which was Dale Earnhardt Jr. Junior's I win. I had a chance to listen back some of that and it was intriguing because Adam petty was in that race and then I heard names of drivers. That kind of forgotten about Jimmy Spencer. Ken schrader Johnny Benson and Elliott Sadler. And that was. That was really cool before Jimmy. Johnson was a cup for the four. Jimmy was a thing in all of that was yet to come This coming week on Sunday we will have a condensed version of what was then the goodies. Five hundred and it of course is the nineteen ninety nine night race at Bristol Motor speedway famous for Dale Earnhardt. Saying I didn't mean to wrecking as one to rattle his cage or the one where Terri Leib Body backed in Earnhardt's front bumper on the land. I'd at that broadcast. That was actually. Prn's first broadcast at the Bristol Motor speedway and what a way to start. I don't know that we've ever seen that kind of fireworks sense. So if you want to hear of the interviews with a pre race interviews with all the drivers which is Kinda Fun. 'cause you go back and we're talking with. Dale earnhardt and Darrell Waltrip and Rusty Wallace. And then all the things that transpired during that race. That's going to be a lot of fun and I've got to applaud our affiliate base. The job that you and David Styles have done we have about a third of our stations that are carrying a twenty year old race broadcast this Sunday. Yeah And and we're not carrying one motoracing network has having one on. What would have been there weekends as well? So it's been great a real quick if you could give us a thirty second. Condensed version so people tune in this week and know what was going on through your mind that night. How busy things were it? It was the first time I've ever done live play-by-play race at Bristol. So that itself was overwhelming. The place is packed but you just sensed as it was winding down that it was going to be something very very special. It didn't it didn't surprise me at all how it ended well and that is going to be a great one to tune into so you can hear that coming up this. Sunday on many great.
