"Car racing fulfill its childhood dream of mine with just a great people who believe in me and really made this come together. Everyone happy front. Row motorsports five jerry. All of our partners. It's very exciting. Definitely as it hit me fully yet. It probably won't tweet get the daytona but it's going to be so great compete every single week in and around a full time schedule especially at this level the cut here's get very diverse now to as far as Going more road courses and things like that. So i'm looking forward to getting more experienced overall and becoming a better race car driver and building chemistry with the right team as well. Because it's something that. I hope to be long term. You know i feel like i'm it was it was. I wouldn't call it a long road to get your fat but now a couple of almost feel like i'm i'm just starting now. You know like. I hope to start of a long term future and i am looking forward to getting the season started. Yeah definitely definitely i mean. That's that's exciting stuff for sure. Obviously with you jumping into the cup series so young with so little fulltime experience in the nascar national series level. You're going to have several people about what this guy hasn't owned a full truck series orcs series. This point. what does he deserve to be here for What do you have to say the people who are gonna be your detractors. The season well. I think the biggest thing is that. I don't have unrealistic expectation. I know that it's going to be learning curve. And i'm prepared for that. So the biggest thing is going to be working with fordham the simulator. And all my guys in the thirty eighteen to to learn as much as they can port before we get this evening chart and then from there take it week by week and Get new a rhythm. Get better and develop some sort of consistency and it'd be competitive. I'm i'm looking forward to the challenge. Like i said i already know. It's going to be You know running these longer races going to push me physically and mentally probably more than ever. I'm excited about that. And then on top of that just the experience and learning and getting more laughs than my belt's going to come join us some new race tracks And and hopefully developing something long term. Like i said. Yeah certainly certainly. Do you think that possibly going into this season as a rookie is maybe more of an advantage than it's been in years past with some of the tracks we're going to have on the schedule coda. Y- one hundred percent. I think for sure that that was you know. of course. part of the decision was Starting to develop something long term and with the new cars coming out in a year Everyone's optimistic about that and and excited about it as You know they continue to test and improve it for you know when when it raises for the first time so Learning tracks that are going to be on that schedule and getting experience with the length of raises the strategy involved to complete a cup race You know successfully and the kinds of things are going to be a huge help for you know what else would be another. Hold on when the car comes out. Yeah i think a lot of people are positioning themselves to to strike when the new car releases for the cup series for sure. Now you know. Two years ago you're making your nascar national series debut and now you fast forward two thousand twenty one. You're going to be a rookie in the cup series. When you're making that first truck series start in two thousand and nineteen. Did you ever hear wildest dreams. Imagine that you'd be a full-time cup series competitor. Just two years later. No definitely i definitely not. Probably i mean i wouldn't. I wouldn't say that. I think the biggest thing that means. Just you know. I've always been focused at the at the task at hand. If that makes any sense you know. Of course you kind of have You develop what you might call a long term plan of course and and set goals for yourself they want to achieve but Especially running part time the last couple years. I've always been focused on making the most out of each opportunity. I've had because some of them have been few and far between at times and I'm just super thankful to have the opportunity. I have this year i truly feel blessed and have so many people to thank especially everyone at front row and our partners and the people behind me. It wasn't a decision made by myself. it was. You know this goes back to you. Know other team owner. The girl for everyone that you know believed in me and we all agree to great the best opportunity for me to take the next step in my career so it's Like said it's going to be a challenge. But i'm definitely excited about it and i always hoped i would get to this level but when it when that day came which today it's definitely Still pretty thrill definitely down that you you mentioned that some past car owners and other people helped you make the decision here. Were there other offers on the table for the cup series Maybe where there are some other full-time truck or extend the options on the table. As well there were some other genes. I say when the season started. And and we you know narrow down and some came and went and things like that and You know this is the one that we put his the top of the list of the best opportunity for me. And i'm really glad able to make the most of it because like i said i think it's a huge opportunity for me to grow the driver and then start developing future in the sport. Great stuff on the final lap weekly so far from anthony alfredo So where do we stand getting a A italian food sponsor On your on your car. Your name's anthony alfred. oh And it just makes sense. I think it would be a great tie in. Do you think maybe this is the year for olive garden to finally sponsor you get point definitely. We've been we've been trying to make that happen for a while now and maybe now that i'm at the top level in our sport we can work something like that out. That'd be great. I think that'd be the perfect representative and it could be marketing magic to have Have some sort of anthony's fettuccini. Alfredo or something like that. On a member of had downtown restaurant daily can see that now also e. Sports are kind of taking off anthony. And you've been kinda the forefront of that you've done a lot of streaming and things of that nature. I know in the pandemic said in that kind of accelerated things in that aspect for you as well Has that may be kind of helped you your twitch streaming and stuff like that help. Elevate you to be more kind of worthy of sponsorship In this aspect. And maybe that's why you know people want to move you to the cup series so quickly because sponsors want to attach themselves to you. Yes it hits you did level and you know it it gives opportunity per not not just myself and the driver to build my brand to you know on and off the track for our party who you mentioned the highest level so this is maximum exposure if you will for For our partners.

"And just to put it in context for people who might not be familiar with the Charlotte area. Who are listening state spill is about twenty to thirty minutes away on I seventy seven depen-. On how traffic is on one of the worst arteries in America's roadways. Yes, I'm sure sometimes that trip takes longer. But certainly that's not far, you know, half hour to get from here to states Ville tops. That's not too bad. But when the cars arrive here Jerry just to sort of explain a little bit further. They're pretty much almost in finished state. And then when they come here to mooresville, they just put like the finishing touches the rap with people would think of as the paint scheme, and then loaded on the truck here in and send it out and the crew chiefs have their offices here as well. Yes. That's correct. So yeah. And I think it's a it's a little more than that going on here at in mooresville shop the cars come I think anything that's manufactured the body the chassis. Gotcha. That's what's done and over in our states Ville shop. It comes over here and suspensions bolted on drivers seats put in all the interior components fuel cell engine. And then then set up and ready to go to the racetrack. So you know, I don't want to sell a poor guy short here. Now a lot going on here too. So this is the most important part. Right. I mean, they have to be right. Well, get on the truck. You know, it's all important. You know, if if it's not done right in the fabrication process. There's no way they're gonna fix it at this point. So the body's just not right? And you're not getting the arrow you need on the car. The chassis is not straight or built the way it should be. You know, you're never gonna get the handle so maintaining that quality control with two different shops. Donnie wingo here who's been a longtime crew chief he oversees all of our car production. He has spent a lot of time traveling between states Ville mooresville and then over to row standing gauged with what's going on with our alliance partner in rows Fenway. So Donnie does a fantastic job with just ensuring the quality control the cars, and we've really been pleased to see our product as you get these scan maps off the Hawkeye system, and the consistency in our cars and compare them to the rash cars which were trying to build to their spec. You know, I feel like our guys do a good job of that just to again frame it for people when I drove up here from Charlotte. I got off on. Exit thirty five and seventy seven in came through the the winding road that leads up to the hill that the shop sits on and went past rouse, Yates, were all the engines come from Tra Ford teams and some other suppliers and vendors down here down the road. So I presume Jerry like having this new location at when you're expanding your staff by nearly a third when you're going from sixty something people to ninety something people being in mooresville allows you to attract maybe a better talent pool. Then you could even though states Ville is only thirty minutes away. There's some people think that's the country. This is a little bit more like the city. Yeah. For sure for sure even though it is that close it can be a million miles away to somebody's gotta drive to work there every day. So and as you alluded to with the traffic, if you live in a certain part of Charlotte, and you got to traverse through all that traffic to get the state's Ville, it can be a nightmare odd..

"Parents last year. So thanks for coming back. My pleasure, Nate, always a pleasure to talk to you. And make sure I got this. Right. You're still general manager expansion. All right. Joel manager of a team that added a third car for twenty nine hundred Jerry with Matt tift? And in addition to that when I talked to you last year, we were at your shop in states Ville. And now you've kept that shop for the moment. And you also have added this shop in mooresville, which was formerly Chip Ganassi racing. Many many years ago h Scott motorsports also was in here and now front row. So take me through with the process has been like adding that third car and adding a new location as well. I think since since we last spoke front row motorsports as gone in and bought another race team. That was in bankruptcy operated that team to the bounce a- last year, basically shut down that team moved some of the folks, and and certainly some equipment over into our front row race team rented another shop expanded into that third car to utilize that new charter hired a lot of people to help with getting the the inventory built up and to go take the cards to the racetrack. And to take care of the business side. Of the third team. And so there it's been a whirlwind for sure we've we've had an awful lot going on since about mid August. And as we talked about last time, I'm I'm really big into cycling. And I think I've ridden my bike twice since September one last year. So so big into cycling. There's actually stationary bike. Hearing Jerry's office machines about that's about the only way. Get on it anymore. So I had to drag it up here. But but yeah, we've had a lot going on. And we haven't started the season. I think in finishes being what we'd want. But there's been a lot of speed in the race cars and really been encouraged that even with all the expansion and moving and set up shop mad and people and all that that you know, I I feel like we've still got a pretty competitive product out there. How many people did you guys end up adding Jerry with the new car again being that tift, and I would presume it's not just a road Kurna crew chief, but it's the support people here at the shop and chassis suspension body all that stuff. It sure is you know, we went from around. I think it was sixty five people, and we're we're up to like ninety three ninety two something like that. So, you know, in the challenge in all that is you know, you really look for some economies of scale of ad net. Thirteen minutes reason, you do it in a lot of respects but race now two different shops. It's kinda hard to have that Konami sometimes and that one guy that can do a couple of things. Well, he's over in our. Other shopping states Ville and and into backup a little bit. Our shopping states, Phil we're still doing all of our fabrication work. We just expanded our fabrication capabilities in states Ville, and and then the assembly set up road crew business offices here in mooresville. So we're operate now to shops right now, which isn't perfect. But you know, we're making it work, and you know, it's kind of hard. Sometimes you got obviously to light bills and trash services and everything. So it's not as a fishing as it could be if we're all in one space, but but we're making it work and just trying to keep keep the two two shops engaged communication, obviously is a is a huge component of of any successful business. And so I've tried to work real hard to keep that communication open. And keep the fellas and Seitz villes engaged with what's going on in mooresville and vice versa..

"They'll allow me to keep the team while you're is eventually the judge decided, no, we're gonna give it to the trustees, evaluate it and determine the best course of action which team was put up for bid in a process. You were telling me just before we get started, here was closed at the public took roughly three minutes courting to lawyer. A lawyer said in court is it was a bidding process. Now started off. They had what they call the stocking horse bid, which they took a bids and basically created the low end type of thing. And that was from g. m. s. president Mike beam was for one point, eight million dollars for the charter for fixed assets, including cars and things like that. Now, part of the deal was that you had to keep the employee's on through the rest of the season and that the employees were all able to receive a two thousand dollar bonus. If they stayed with the organization through the end of the season, this was an organization that had approximately twenty employees. So you know, you're looking at essentially forty four, you know, more than fifty thousand dollars is what was supposed to be allotted for this. You know, you have the stalking horse bid. So basically that was supposed to be an opportunity for anybody to come in. You know, Matt Smith at setting. Court at one point that he had been contacted by, you know, more than two dozen individuals interested in assets aspects of the team. While it turns out there was only one bid and that was from front row motorsports. That was for two million dollars. Everybody in the courtroom talked about how disappointing the bid was in in the sense of they were hoping for more an end to put it in perspective. You know, in this came out in the court documents that in December two thousand sixteen b racing sold one of its charters. Originally. Remember it had to charters when the charter system came out for the eighty three car and the twenty three. It sold the charter to the eighty three car in December twenty sixteen to front row motorsports for two million dollars. Now you have a bid for the charter and cars and equipment for two million dollars. So an essence front row motorsports a year and a half later paid less. You said dusk. Than the the bid was disappointing as by the courtroom. What was expected to be the number. They never said what the number was, but you know, obviously, you know, if you're the Bank and you're owed nine million dollars, you certainly want closer to that. But as you said, like the charter went from two million? Yeah, I for less assets to front row a year and a half earlier, so they couldn't have been expecting more than three or I had somebody told me they thought it only get up to about two point five. They thought that's about where the bidding would go depend who was going to be involved in it after starting as we said. But I think I think some of those in the courtroom were kind of hoping for three or more to only have one bid and where it had been stated in court. There'd been, I think, you know about thirty interested parties at one point or another. The lawyers used it. Matt Smith use the term. His lawyer used it, the judge used it. I think everybody used it is that it was a disappointing sale and they thought it could get more, but it's a mystery. And why there weren't more bidders as it. Was there any reason provided for that? No, no, no. I mean that that was that was that was the thing everybody was kind of wondering about is just where everybody goes to. Obviously they did sell some other assets that did sell some chassis and various shapes, and and I guess in various levels of full chassis, partial chassis to Abaco racing. And that was for two hundred sixty five thousand dollars. And they did sell a tractor trailer to Rick Rick ware racing for thirty five thousand, which was a trailer he'd already been leasing have been paying a little bit each week to lease the truck. So into the day, the total sales essentially two point four for for all the things that they did..

"That's that's our example maybe a slightly smaller scale than the shell pennzoil penske deal but that's kind of an example what we do but certainly good one and i've heard that you know you're mentioning you like over delivering for your sponsors like if they if the contract says we're gonna provide ex you want to provide a little bit more than than ex is a good example of that like where you feel like you've and i guess like you know what would those contracts look like what would you say about like what you need to deliver to meet i guess the stipulations yeah yeah you know i mean i don't know i i don't i certainly can't speak to what other contracts might have but i think maybe the best example could be in no one particular example but i've heard this time and time again from folks that have come to the racetrack if they're on loves behalf or with csx or whatever and maybe they got invited to come on with another sponsor somewhere you know and they got the same experience somewhere else well they're experienced there was they got a pit tour they got five minutes with the driver outside his motor coach and he was just doing the story signing some autographs real quick take a few pictures and zooming back in the motor coach with us you know i mean we're really trying to give a great experience at the track and get them up on the pit box we might have a sweet might have a motor coach they're they're getting quality time with the driver and you gotta get your drivers to buy into to you got to have drivers that are really get the whole pitcher and it'll go above and we've been super.

"Whatever and you beat new chested everything's great but as a hard hard deal to combat it says guys you you're beating some really good cars me do that so you know we got to take some pride in that and have some belief in what we're doing the right thing but you know don't lose our focus and just keep working hard and just try to get better flow it certainly comes jury for spending that extra money because money by speed sp just true the nascar and all forms of racing and you mentioned the part about being your chest i want to talk to you about the money in about the sponsorship is one of the reasons i've i've interviewed many times not just before nbc but when i was at usa today for stories about how small teams exist and how they convince sponsor student involved and i can remember when chris butcher one for you guys at pocono in two thousand sixteen i interviewed you then and you were saying that it was kind of a tricky thing for you guys because you needed to sort of bump your chest out and say hey we wanna pocono we've wanted talladega and twenty thirteen with david ragan we need to convince sponsors that there's a huge value proposition here but at the same time you can't just say well tomorrow we're going to be running with hendrick motorsports team penske and jobs racing what what's that been like i know part of your job is what you just talked about is running the competition side the other part obviously a huge part i think is finding the money is the business side for sure for sure there in lies is a huge challenge and in the case for every every race team probably anybody in sports marketing really is is coming up with that compelling business proposition for somebody to invest in their product and gotta have a good business reason you know and and.

"As we had been just kind of i will say throwing the cars together but almost own the cars together because a lot of stuff was coming in real late and you really didn't have the time to really sit there and have it on the plate for a day or two and go through various setups you know and but to be able to kind of put things together in timeframe we did and show up and have you know reasonably good speed off the truck and and last week we had two cars make it to the second round in qualifying which you know i don't know that we've ever done that before fine has always been our achilles heel and you know michael was in the second round at atlanta too so just really really good signs to me and not feel like once we get past this hurdle the west coast races and the race season becomes a little more routine force after that and we will have more time to take and really massage on these cars and really work through multiple setups and give the crew chiefs a good game plan when they show up i just feel like just being that much better shape but it was really just leap of faith this year until you made her she lives at atlanta with michael day david you didn't know if you'd be really really you know are we still going to be you know this thirtieth place race team out there or or what are we still don't qualify thirtieth and thirty first you know and you know you can't get too high can't get too low and i'm trying not to get too high we we had a initial look at this package at the homestead race last year you know we took we had the most current spec car we had the best engine we could get out around yates and had the best drivetrain package that our drive train provider could provide david ran really good the whole and we had terrible practice in we still ran really good in race and landon ran pretty good too and.

"Yeah well him and that's just it rightly he can only do so much before as you say hold on a minute when he tony and and i i for some reason don't ask me why i think we're gonna have if if things don't go as planned which i don't think they will of cluelessly serve our arqam's shuddering in the midseason oh yeah will hold the pilot i could very much see that well because i don't this this team is such a wonky team like like maybe the banco committed try and take the charter away yeah exactly speaking of let's stuff let's talk about poor too small team drama and this is the fun part because the continuing saga of bk racing has gone to the next level last week in our last episode the bank union bank and trust or wherever they are they filed for an injunction to have the courts basically freeze bk racing's assets they couldn't sell their charter they couldn't sell their you know any of their equipment anything until everything was figured out between them and the bank right so they in a plied for that and at the same time the sib north carolina came in and actually see some stuff that the government did for unpaid taxes while a fast soared this week that injunction was granted so now bk racing cannot if they wanted to bail and trying you know sneak out a dodge in the middle of the night amla the new baltimore colts they couldn't do that not legally at least they can do that and so that's where they are right now and there's going to be hearing and the bank very very likely could take over the entire team the would the one interesting part about it though is that they've basically asked for the assets to be liquidated and four ownership of the chart of the one charted the bk racing currently does have right now but they backed off on the charter that was sold to front row motorsports they aren't necessarily trying to get that one at this point which i don't know if they will win that one or not but one way or the other bk racing is saying nothing it's not round vine is not like oh man.
