Casters I'm your host Scott Bland. We're living a split screen world right now. Never clearer than on Wednesday night when we were sitting in the newsroom with one TV on the Democratic presidential debate in Nevada and other TV on President Donald Trump's Arizona rally happening at the very same time open borders late term abortion president who rose to power by cynically exploiting late. This station screamed. This is going to be the reality. We live in for the next several months. Twenty twenty isn't going anywhere. Democrats are GONNA be doing their thing. Trump is definitely going to be doing his thing and we are talking to political White House reporter. Gaby or on this episode about the trump campaign strategy behind this What she calls the art of the troll and also how the trump administration is paying particularly close attention to the twenty twenty Senate map after impeachment. But first we've got another raucous caucus coming up Nevada. Democrats are voting on Saturday there. They've actually been doing some early voting through the week. But they're gonNA finish things up on Saturday and with me to break it. All DOWN IS POLITICO'S ZACH MONTEL zero author of the morning score newsletter. Hi Scott Welcome. Thanks thanks for being here is all you know it anytime. Do all right. So let's start with some expectation setting that we recently got from Tom. Perez the chairman of the Democratic National Committee who said that we should brace ourselves for the possibility of not getting results from the Nevada caucuses on Saturday. When they're happening now this is the first caucus since Iwa. We all know what happened in Iowa. There's the primary in New Hampshire but we're back back to the Caucasus for now and there appear to be some concerns about Iowa 2.0. Coming to pass right so after the debacle disaster. Whatever word you want to Iowa was not good everybody in a recount early in a recount. It's it will not be over for at least a little bit longer. After that all went down at all odds turned to Nevada to make sure they don't do the same thing. And this is probably a little bit of expectation setting to try to you know. Play it out a little bit. Try to lower expectations at a couple of hours. Later could come a couple of days later so everyone's not losing their minds. They worry about Iowa the night of and honestly that's the that's the real problem of it rightly knack that the results. Well there there were some precincts where the results were calculated or recorded improperly and that. That's a big problem. But the fact that the results were not available instantaneously is not in and of itself a problem unless it's become this broadcast event where people are expecting it to be there and then journalists are getting tired and hungry and yeah you know how much this election swings on the irritability of hungry journalists an acing. But I mean that's part of the problem with is that they. The party said expect results. You know fairly quickly and it was never said we could be in for a long night certainly but we were never supposed to be in for a long. What is this two and a half weeks at this point so in Nevada that trying to not set expectations? I it's a little bit different. You know caucuses there start early in the day. Thankfully I think it's noon local time so God willing. The results could be wrapped up fairly early in the evening. If everything goes all right but this this expectation setting by Chairman. Peres is trying to walk that back so if results don't happen instantaneously people don't immediately freak out you know. Part of it too is that there's a massive massive amount of people who voted early in Nevada for the first time so I offered early voting. And it's just a huge amount of people doing so so calculating that and figuring that out could add raise working that interim caucus process because everyone who voted early basically had to write on a sheet of paper. First Choice second choice. And then they're going to do all the allocation alignments with those early those are people basically GonNa be carrying stacks of paper around the actual precinct sites that do this calculation and people in the groups who voted early. They have they have this all on paper but they also have papers the backup form. The they're part of this has been digitized. Not as they like to stress. It was not an appetite. Google pick pick your poison. I guess at this point but part of it is going to be just working out in caucuses. Only something that people can't early vote in a whole point. Caucus is that people are in the same room at the time they get to Jabber at each other and try to move around the DNC earlier in the cycle. Wanted to make caucuses a little. Bit more available because caucuses in are inherently Less Democratic social so we shall say that a PRI primarily Democrats Democratic primary because p because you have to be there to certain times we're trying to open it up and then working those results back and makes it more difficult you know. They're on high alert The New York Times reported earlier this week that basically anyone laid attack is kinda swarming to Nevada to make sure it doesn't go crazy. Google is aware that if anything goes wrong even though they have nothing really to do with this that it would reflect poorly on them. Time supported that Google people there. You know the State Party as we reported. Put a call out. Volunteers Tech minded volunteers be able to troubleshoot the documents. Estate Party put out. They put the documents went down to something as small. As how do you turn on an IPAD? So like the really trying to make. Sure a foolproof system or as much of a foolproof system as it can be you know. I bet some people will get tripped up by turning on part but they really trying to walk through every step of the process to make sure. There's not really having mistakes. The fact that there are so many people involved if they do start having to report by hand by phone on the backup system the more people. You have the faster that goes to right. You're not going to potentially have people on hold for hours So assuming lessons were learned and put into practice. And maybe Peres's doing low expectations setting and we actually do get some results on Saturday. What are you expecting there? Can you break down a little bit of the the race for Nevada for us? Yes so partially is. I'm I'm a little not sure what to expect. Because of that early voting the number people early voted with something. I think something like seventy five thousand people. That's about a little less than ten thousand less than the total number of people who caucus in two thousand sixteen so it is a lot of people that kind of changes. The electorate and changes our our caucus operates. If that many people are voting early that being said our my colleague our colleague David ciders reported earlier this week. That other campaigns are privately conceding that Bernie Sanders looks to be the front runner They don't expect him to run away with it. They don't even really get third of the vote which considering how big the field would be a lot but other campaigns think that Bernie Sanders up there. some polling this week of Latino voters in the state which is incredibly important Coalition within the state showed kind of sanders and Joe Biden running. You know one and two and Biden's campaign says they think they can finish second. So that's what I think is the most important to watch Joe Biden's argument so far has been you know New Hampshire Iowa not representative Democratic Party. Not Representative my support all white people. Let's see how he does now in a state. That's not all white people basically all right so we've got Sanders is the front runner. Both sparse public polling and and in what the campaigns are responding potentially making a strong showing here. We'll we'll see if that all turns out what about the standout debate performer from Wednesday night. Elizabeth Warren who did some gangbusters fundraising stuff We saw in New Hampshire that in Klobuchar rose into a strong third-place. Finish there on the back of a big debate performance and could we see the same from Warren in Nevada? Yeah we shall see. Warrants campaign has always been Organiz Organiz organized so that inherently lends itself to caucuses you know she finished in third in Iowa a distant third but a third ne nevertheless. Let's see how she does here. I wonder how much early voting will affect. All those early voting ended before the debate started so all. These people cast their ballots. Early Did Not get to see Elizabeth Warren kind of beat up Mike Bloomberg for an hour and a half or whatever. It was earlier this week. So that all happen before You know she. She asked me up to get the voters. Were showing up day of and maybe flip some of them but that could be a sizeable chunk of people who od cast their ballot. Already locked in well before Sh you know she had a chance on stage and let's bring in. Let's bring in a few more candidature club charring. Duda judge bounced into Nevada off strong performances in New Hampshire in Iowa to as far as a judge is concerned But whereas Biden has been looking forward to getting out of those first two states and into some of the states with more Latino voters more black voters that has been potentially barrier for cloture on Buddha judge whose Who who have not really shown a ton of support among Voters of color in the polling. So far in this primary yet been a major barrier for both of them They haven't had the opportunity to try to reach out to voters of color and our colleague. Elena Schneider reported the earliest week that this is the first massive road bump that they're going to is this you know it's a diverse electorate. Now it's not just white. Voters casting their ballots. Latino voters it's You know more so in South Carolina but also a stiff african-american population in Nevada as well. How do they read about Vada? No matter I will get this wrong John Ralston. Don't yell at me. How do they win over these voters right and is there? Frankly enough time for them to do so. Is the real question that even after these two strong performances. What are they doing to try to bring these voters into their fold? And then there's times tire. Then there's Tom Star Tom Steyer was not on the debate. Stage earlier this week. Much to the Chagrin of his campaign they were very much not so much grimm a lot of it but by all accounts he could pick up a delegate in the State. We don't really quite know from the public polling his polling he released internal poll so take it with a oceans worth of salt. Nobody re releases bad turtles about themselves. But his internal polling said hey we could crack eighteen percent down and delegate Either way public polling the view public long we've had in Nevada and in south. Carolina has shown Tom Steiner performed particularly. Well these are states that he he's invested a lot of money in every state. Don't get me wrong Iowa New Hampshire but it seems to have paid off. Because IRA New Hampshire. He was contested. Everyone invested a lot of money in Iowa New Hampshire. That's not the case for Nevada and South Carolina. He was basically by himself on the airwaves. He has a massive field staff. He you know he's hired a lot of locals. This is what he's banking on is doing well. Here could really change the dynamic to it could be siphoning off votes from a whole bunch of different people if he shows up cracks ten eleven percent. Something he wasn't doing in Iowa New Hampshire where he was barely in mid single digits. At best on that kind of brings us to the last question to ask you because you mentioned the impossibility. That's dire could snag delegates in Nevada and South Carolina. Who knows where else going forward at the very end of Wednesday night's debate Nbc Chuck Todd asked every candidate kind of game out the possibility of going into the convention with someone with the front runner. Whoever it is having a plurality of elegance but not the majority being need to get the nomination we are less than two weeks away from a national primary and I want to ask all of you. This simple question. There's a very good chance and none of you. We're going to have enough delegates to the Democratic National Convention to clinch this nomination. Okay if that happens I want all of your opinions on. This should the person with the most delegates at the end of this primary season. Be The nominee even if they are short of a majority my answer to that is wait and see until at least Super Tuesday once we get through the first four early states still not that many delegates awarded all things considered when we hit Super Tuesday march third by the end of Super Tuesday but the time all the votes are tallied which granted could take quite some time. Considering California is one of those states forty percent of delegates will be awarded so we will really have a better answer and a better view in that question comes Super Tuesday march third and the big thing about the states is proportional allocation. You know if you win thirty percent if a Republican election some Republican states it's winner. Take all thirty percent. Wins you the hall of delegates not the case in twenty twenty with Democrats in the states the UN twenty-five percent statewide? You get proportional amount of it you know you have to crack a certain threshold the up to fifteen percent of support to get delegates at all so somebody getting seven percents. Come where nothing. But that also means candidates can't just eke out a victory can't beat them by two or three points and one away with a hall. This is kind of what we saw in these early states that You know no matter who won. I were or New Hampshire Sanders and Buddha judge. Walked Away with just about the same amount of delegates Right now before the recount is completed has more national delegates because they had roughly the same vote count and that will really super size itself on Super Tuesday that if in California three candidates break that threshold. That's dividing that big pot among free people that prevents anybody who gets first place from this kind of taking off and then also you've got the fact that there are delegates that come from the congressional right and so you can have different people finishing above fifteen percent in twenty congressional districts than our finishing about fifteen percent statewide. And so you. That's just the way. The delegate division could contribute to the sort of circumstance that that was discussed at the debate. Doesn't mean it's GonNa Happen. I feel like the talk of a contested convention. Always runs hot at some point. In every single presidential primary ever but you can kind of see the contours how we could end up walking down that. Path Zach. Thanks for breaking it down. Thanks Avenue Scott. Dirt CAST will be right back after this short break. Get ready to experience a story. You probably haven't heard a story about what it was like to live through the greatest political scandal of the century the bizarre and twisted story behind Watergate coming to epochs is the new original Docu series slow-burn based on the award winning podcast Hosts Leon. Nee faulk explores the conspiracy theories government deception in stranger than fiction characters that set Nixon's White House on fire. Watch slow-burn every Sunday night at ten nine central only on epochs. Alright as we told you at the top. It's split screen world. We're going to go to the other side of that screen now. We talked about Democrats in the first half. And we're GONNA talk about President. Donald Trump and what his campaign is up to these days in the second half into it. We have politico White House. Reporter Gab your thanks for having me covering the trump campaign gabby you've written that they're feeling particularly good about the moment therein right now. Trump campaign has the strategy right now that they call the art of the troll and what they're basically doing is dropping dropping into states where you have a caucus or a primary coming up sometimes on the eve of that Dot Contest and doing what they can to basically draws much attention away from the Democratic primary as possible to force The media to be talking about what trump is saying at his rallies to suck all of the energy out of the Democratic Base says they look to what's happening on the debate stage or decide who they're going to vote for in their their states contest and they're they've done this and Iowa they did it in New Hampshire. They did it in Nevada this week. and we can expect that they will continue to do it As as this primary contest unfolds and meanwhile the really interesting thing about the schedule to me in between this Troll tour of the the Democratic primaries and caucuses trump is dropping in on a bunch of two thousand twenty battleground. Republican senators absolutely he's in Colorado North Carolina Nevada and Arizona. This week and Out of that Bunch Arizona and Colorado are two states to really keep an eye on the president is basically going right into the heart of the Senate. Battleground map He he's campaigning alongside Cory Gardner in Colorado. He's campaigning with Martha mcsally and Arizona. These are two of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection in two thousand twenty and they have essentially concluded that it's best for them to sort of attach themselves to the president as closely as possible so they were each Mc Sally was at his Arizona campaign rally. I anticipate that Cory Gardner will be at the Colorado rally as well and The president is doing what he can do. Boost both of them He is also looking to reward them. These are two senators who voted to acquit him in his Senate impeachment. Trial and Mix Sally in particular was a very vocal defender of the president over the course of that impeachment trial and so I do think the president and his his twenty twenty campaign recognize that they should be doing what they can to boost the Senate majority Um dirt at least to try and maintain it and that's part of the strategy and dropping into these purple states and it's interesting because when you think about what a senator or any candidate for Senate in one of these Purple States WanNa do they basically they want to try and be Purple Person Right. Trump is not that but Republican senators have essentially come to the conclusion that you can't kind of straddle the line when it comes to the president and you have to pick a side and they're choosing the trump side and reaping the benefits of it at at these rallies and fundraisers and all sorts of other ways. I think one of the most interesting phenomenon that we've seen under the course of trump's presidency is the fact that there are no longer Quote unquote moderate. Republicans senators they have all attached themselves to Donald Trump in one way or another primarily because of the way that trump has retaliated against those who don't attach themselves to him don't embrace him warmly who don't support his agenda Vote to confirm his appointees And I think that makes Sally and Gardner are both making a strategic decision. Here and one that is really difficult to anticipate how it will play out. Because of course we have seen Republicans who have very closely aligned themselves with trump and with his administration Not Perform well in in their own electoral contests Matt Bevin the Kentucky Governor being one of the most recent examples for Sally Twenty eighteen. Exactly and Dean Heller in two thousand eighteen Senate race as well. Yeah of course. Heller losing in Nevada. Joe Heck Republican in. Who's running for Senate in twenty sixteen in Nevada also lost after bring trump during that campaign mic sally on the flipside? Kinda hugged trump. Very close when when she was running in in two thousand eighteen and it. It just didn't didn't really work out. she was kind of running at the archetypal purple candidate in cinema and McDonald's got a very similar race on our hands in twenty twenty and a lot of ways. She died being appointed to the. Yeah no absolutely. I mean mix alley is I would probably say is the most vulnerable. Republican Senator Somebody who has sort of straddled the line on a number of issues including immigration and Is is really running careful campaign right now But one that has put no distance between her and the president and just to kind of add to the point that we were just talking about or about Republican senators sort of linking themselves in arms with trump Just to underscore that. You know the only alternative that we've seen in the trump era is if you're not willing to do that you're forced to retire. Bob Corker Jeff Flake in Arizona Those are two great examples of Republican senators. Who did have long careers ahead of them but just couldn't stomach the idea of You know linking arms with this administration and thus they were forced out of the Senate corker example is really vivid to me flake. There's always fighting within the Arizona Republican Party. About something or another but corker was a senator and extremely good standing in Tennessee and then he ended up on the wrong side of the president his numbers tank and all of a sudden he's retiring and I'm I'm sure that made a big impression on the folks who are colleagues with him for six twelve eighteen years. I think a lot of Republicans. Look at that moment and think you know. These are my two options. It's binary choice now. Either you embrace trump or you remove yourself from Republican politics. I guess the the in terms of good news for Republicans probably the median state on the Senate map. The one the Democrats would need to flip to take over. The majority is one where he would be favored in in two thousand twenty North Carolina. Yeah absolutely and you know part of the St Strategy that the trump campaign is running as they're looking at Colorado North Carolina Arizona. The three states that he'll be an over the course of this week And basically arguing that they are actually in play in twenty twenty and there are a lot of skeptics of that myself included. But I do think that There are some validity to the fact that they think that they can flip those and put them in the president's call them and thus help Republican senators who are running those states as they do it Colorado Just being one example. You know I was talking to Tim. Murtaugh the communications director of the trump campaign earlier this week and he was saying that. Colorado is a state that Mitt Romney lost by five points in two thousand twelve that John McCain lost by eight points in in two thousand eight and that trump lost by four points in two thousand sixteen and so they believe that that shows a trend toward the Republican Party. And not away from it. Interesting point it should be. It should be interesting to watch all those western campaigns should be a lot of fun to watch got presidential battleground. You get around everything stacked up on top of each other. Got Some House races. Thirteen gabby thanks for taking the time to talk about it. Thanks so much all right.

Backstory Episode 4 - Magnus Bane, High Warlock of Brooklyn
"You swear on your podcast right yet, sworn I wanna fuck it up. Hey, everybody. This is the war for the dark tower. I'm your host, Jeff Richardson. I am also the co host and in lower master of another actual play podcasts called shattered worlds. RPG on that show us a system I created. But for this show, we're using a system that's near and dear to my heart. The guy who made it is names. Kevin Cole, and he is one of the pretend friends and it's called space kings. It's really cool. It's super easy to play. And it's a lot of fun for podcasting. If you go listen to their show, the first couple episodes talk about character creation. You get a sense of how it works and y'all should be playing this game around your own dinner tables, or whatever it's it's a lot of fun. Their show is extremely slapsticky. And silly this show. Will be quite a bit more serious just by the nature of the material, but they'll be some some fun and and goofiness as well. Let's see, oh if you haven't read the dark tower series by Stephen King, and you're afraid of spoilers guess what they're going to be a spoiler. Here. It set in between book six and book seven because I started this project before reading book seven so there may be a a whole lot of stuff that happens. It's totally doesn't fit book seven, but that's fun. The whole thing that makes the dark tower series. Interesting is that it the tower exists in all worlds so literary worlds are included alternate versions of America or wherever are included. So. Yeah. It's it's all Stephen king's big weird, brain and all his books are in there too. So sky's the limit. The the main thing is that they'll probably be a lot of shooting and a lot of nasty gunshot wounds. And. And smother stuff. I don't know I've run out of pre show material the blather about let's get right into it. Andrea, which should I call you? Either. Andrea or on a whatever. I started going by Ana here in Korea. 'cause my name was too hard to pronounce. As long as it's not Anna or an care about. Okay. So on the space kings character, she we'll just go top to bottom your character's name. Yes, I'll be playing as Magnus bane Agnes Bain player on Dreyer and concept. This would be like gunslinger or fish monger. I dunno. It's your characters concept. Yeah. Nice. He's a he's a Warlock like he's actually the high Warlock of Brooklyn, and he's hundreds of years old immortal. And you know, just here to have a good time. Now, how did you come up with the idea of of someone that's a high Warlock of Brooklyn? Just lots of marijuana. No. They have that in Korea. Sorry, sorry. No, he's actually from a pre existing show called shadow hunters. It's based on a book series. But the books are terrible. One of those rare situations where the the add up tation to the screen is actually better than the book. And. Yeah. And I just I absolutely love his character. He's he's almost like. The best version of myself. Like, if I could be the perfect version of myself push myself to like, the platonic ideal of me, if I were a man would probably be Magnus bane. Awesome. And who wrote shadow hunters Cassandra Clare? I believe is her name sounds like a fake name probably. Cassandra clare. All right. So far. Are moving onto attributes. So here you start with one dot in. Every attribute goes up to a maximum of four and you get to assign seven dots. So let's fill those in. Right. Yeah. So I have just the one Braun not a lot of a lot of fighting fighting kit. Pick ability here to jealousy. And then I did to intelligence to wit three charm and three presents. Right. Got those filled in one question, you mentioned that your character is immortal is that immortal like just lunge Eddie. Or is it like be he can be killed. Yes. Some characters when they can be killed that come back like I've been watching DC's legend of tomorrow. Right. And they this pair they reincarnate. Oh, that's cool. And then they find each other. It's destiny or some some silliness. Yeah. That's actually surprisingly good show. So far, it's DC. So I yeah, I didn't have high hopes for it. But it's actually pretty good. When you the DC shows can be pretty good. I've given up on their movies entirely. My girlfriend was asking. If if I'd seen Justice league announced like God. Like, I didn't want to be rude. But as no. Same. I tried to watch suicide squad on an airplane. And I couldn't like if you can't watch a movie on an airplane. You know, it's bad So that's that's rough man. I'd rather watch ladybugs. I only mentioned that. 'cause ladybugs was on a plane. I was on once. So equal to your brand temps three year. Brunner's gone. So yet three. That means I'm injured at two injured it to an unconscious at one. And so what this means is if basically if you take any damage injured. Yeah. What happens when you're not injured in this game? Is you get an extra card to flip right right with every deal? But you're not the only character that we have on the team so far that only has three health. So y'all are going to have to be real sneaky and careful if you all want to stay alive. And in the other game, I've been in I've been playing as a the Bard with very low hit points, and basically the inability to hit anything ever. So I'm used to it. Let's see initiative is presence, plus agility. So you have three presents to Gillian. That'll be five slightest rate five in there. Uh-huh. And then dodge this'll let you take no damage from one attack around so agility plus with five minus two, so you're max dodge will be three. Dr this is an amount of cards. You can add to. Wait. Did you only have to? Yeah. To it. Okay. So you only have to dodge I already screwed up the character sheet with up ten. Okay. Drive a wit and presence. That'd be five so fill in a teacher. So I have a pen and a pencil ready. Nice. And then a critical this is if you get a Queen of hearts, so basically once per session, probably you'll get instead of one success. You'll get three. Next is skills. So this little tricky because we're making characters at basically at first level, right? A lot of the things that Magnus could do in the show will be a little off or like you won't rate at them yet. So that's just for L P and the shell like you've pretty much often Nerf him. To actually put a game with him. So your intelligence is too. So that means you get four skills for practices and two masters the masters. I think you wanted magic had. Yeah. We made up the sacred magic. And that I did a persuasion persuasion. Okay. And your four practices. I went with a biology empathy investigation. And space was space was let cintas thing. They described it as sort of like kind of like, the street, smarts, or whatever. Oh, that's right. I was thinking flying spaceships, but that would be pilot. That's right. On pretend friends anytime there's like something that seems anachronistic like, I don't know fruit. Loops he'd call it space fruit. Loops that. So it makes sense that he'd call it space was. Yeah. Yeah. So if you have an attribute with four dots or a skill with four dots. Then you get an ultimate which is like a special power. You can use time to time and you have to because you have a mastery and sacred magic and one in persuasion. So a little while ago. We talked about what those might be. Yeah. So I suggested helped me help you. Yes. Out that that would let you convince someone to go against their own boss or their own ideology. And then if they find out you played them later, they'll they'll get real angry. Let's do this. Oh, that's the one you want. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I had one called let's do this. And then I had another. One. Did we just become best friends? Oh, which is a quote from step Bernice? So wait, which was the one. I thought I thought I wanted hold me. Hope you what was it? Just become best friends with each success. You move the targets feelings up this ladder from hostile to neutral neutral, the friendly friendly to bonded and bonded to hopelessly devoted that could be really fun to all men, and it also is a TBT L reference. I think I do think I have to go with that. Yeah. That's that's true. Did we know best friends? What's the other one? I'm promoting you to general in my friendship army. Okay. And the other one is for sacred magic. I think you wanted. Did you want mass he'll total recovery or Eldridge cannon? I think I wanted total recovery. That's the one that could just like he'll one person of. Affects okay, poisoning and all that. Yeah. Fixation without one called again, a total recovery. I just put total recovery. I mean, it could have a cute name or a funny name. I'll try to think of one. Okay. Cool or if you think of one. Yeah. Maybe it will come up in the mcauliffe's of playing. So you're racist human, right. Yeah. Well, part the if that matters. Oh, that's right. His dad's as Modena's. Yes. Okay. Planet earth. Yes. Is this a weird alternate earth? Irs this regular old earth. I mean, it's it's kind of alternate earth in the there are these people called shadow hunters that have angel blood who fight demons, and then there's people that are part demon like vampires and warlocks and stuff, but it's sort of like sort of like in Buffy how it's all the demon stuff is just slightly outside of the normal human experience. So it's conceivable that you know, there are shadow hunters. And most likely if somebody saw you say our world, that'd be no big deal. Yeah. No. He looks like a normal very fabulous human being. All right, so inventory. You get four useful items would have come up with for that. Oh, gosh. We did this like a a while ago. Didn't we have some sort of a enroll in a pack. I'm gonna see book. So you want to spell book? Oh, he does have a makeup kit o obviously. Apparently, he wears lipstick. And oh, yes. Lots of lunar shadow. Oh, yes. Very cool. If I had woken up earlier, I would have liked gone all out and done a Magnus look. But considering I rolled out of bed and IMO pajamas. Magnus would be ashamed of me. I'm sorry. My boy. It says performed summoning rituals. Yeah. Yeah. He can summon demons. That's exciting. And the way he does. Neither is really fun. It's all very like Taichi sorta for like body movements. Yeah. Lots of big or like, you know, like with a with a snap like lots of flourishes and. Hands. Okay. We'll we'll we'll fill in those last two items slots as you collect stuff. I guess non useful items. I don't actually know what he means by those. I don't know like a suit. Like things that you that are part of your character. But that don't affect gameplay, maybe. In in this though like everything affect game play. Just 'cause you'll have you'll be completely. Well, your cell will be useless, depending on where you go. I mean, useful items is sort of like things you have a quipped and then non useful items is just your inventory. General. I mean, I'm not a nerd, I don't know anything about video games. She says playing RPG over dischord. After playing a different RPG yesterday. Who would you play? We play have you ever played fiasco. It's this really simple thing. Basically just sets up a scene, and you choose different relationships between the characters, and then it's it's almost just like a sort of guided improv, it's it's pretty cool. Was there any sort of adventure conflict? Yeah. We will cause you set up different. Because each. The characters either have relationships or goals. So for example, my goal was only entire goal was world world domination. But then we were rivals in that we were followers of different forms of Justice. So she was playing sort of like an anarchist. Like the world is broken. We just see the, you know, burn it down and rebuild it. And I was playing this a corrupt politician. Cool. You know who wanted to rid the world of super powered individuals to to create peace? It was a superhero themed thing was a lot of fun. That's awesome. Though, the one that we did before was set in a in a seemingly nice southern town. And that one went crazy. We got involved with the mafia I was playing an unwed eighteen year old mother call the was Cecilia Higgins, and I was doing the most awful southern accent the whole time. I knew I think I think you'd get a kick out of ad look it up. It's fiasco in school took up. Let's see. So you acquainted yourself with your father? I'm trying to decide where we should start backstory yet. Oh, yeah. He claimed he was hundreds of years old knowing Julius Caesar and other. Oh, yeah. He's constantly exaggerating about his age who he's met who he's had sex with. Like, there's one great line. I was old when the Dead Sea was just a puddle that was feeling a little sick. Or one point. He's he's kinda hitting on Alec. And he's like and he's talking to someone about her art ability. And she's like, oh, I haven't seen anyone with such talent for art since the Colangelo who's amazing in bed as well. Like, you didn't sleep with Michael Angelo, I refuse to believe that. So I'm gonna have fun just doing that reminds me of a guy knew that went to Canada and in had had it on with two ladies when he was like sixteen and didn't have a car. I definitely have an Oscar Wilde quote, but I'm just I really wanna use at some point. This is it. It's New Year's Eve twenty seventeen has been a fuck in mess. For the rest of the country. It's been a real shit show. The president is a lunatic. You know, fire and people every week or so New York is well, there's just seems like a regular old any any New Year's, you know, there's some people have hope some people don't, but behind the veil Magnus knows that something big is right around the corner. He's feels it. He's been tenths and up-tight is employee is at the nightclub have been asking him. What's wrong? He's gone to us therapist. And doesn't know what it is. He just has a weird feeling, but New Year's Eve is always his night. He loves to throw a party. He invites all the coolest people, and this is in Brooklyn, right? Yeah. Yeah. Could sort of his home turf. What neighborhood do you have any idea? What neighborhood he said, I know next to nothing about New York. I'm going to be I'm going to be BS. Ing my way through this one. In a very cool labor hood this stylish, but old he's owned the apartment for a long time. So. Right. So you're lounging on the couch and the ball's gonna drop in like two minutes. Ryan Seacrest is on the TV Perez Hilton was supposed to come to your party. But she cancelled the Warlock, you know. Let's see. Instead you got Selena Gomez for five minutes. But then she had to go to the she had to go to Manhattan for the ball to drop c. See it's a mundane party party. And you you made it Harry Potter themed. So there's a lot of scarves, and and all that jazz. And you see just an enormous huge guy in in Hagrid Qasr play. And he starts coming across the dance floor towards your your VIP couch with all your hot men, and ladies draped all around you. And a woman tries to get your attention and you waiver off 'cause you're staring at this guy and your assistant. Geog? Oh, oh. Santiago puts his hand on your leg. Just above the knee and leans in. You think he's just going to give you one of the many kisses. He tries to lay on you all the time. And then he whispers in your area. And he says, sir. I I don't know who that is. And is he gets closer you start to realize that is some incredible Harry Potter 'cause play and the people are just flying out of the way trying to get out of the way. And you realize the ground is shaking like over the sound of the base and his feet must be like a foot wide, and he's towering over everyone. And you realize that something magical is going on because that dude is twice as tall as everyone else. But he's smiling and he's carrying like a giant kind of satchel or duffel bag. Do you want to do anything? Signal to the security or whatever, you know. Very casually. Or your security mundane or that magic powers. Well, it's a Monday and party. So it's probably just mundane security. So you send your your your three biggest over there and the asset him they intercept him, and he laughs, and it like booms over all the room like the whole room you hear glasses clinking. He puts out one giant meaty hand. And he waves at you over the heads of these these big bodyguards one whispers in his ear like who the hell is this guy? He's huge. So this giant bearded guy leans down into the and whispers into the earpiece that this guy is talking into any goes, Mr. bean new dispute with you privately and the guys like clutching the side of his head and he's like on there's like spittle raining down on him. See this. So clearly, yeah. So magnates the stands up with a moderate amount of gravitas and approaches this whole thing behemoth of a man. How tall is again. Very. I don't know ten feet. Sure. So this is like me looking at a normal person. So nice approaches him since far enough away that he doesn't have to be, you know, like totally craning his neck trying to, you know, maintain his own charisma, or whatever it looks like this guy is eight feet six inches tall. All right. All right. Got it. Oh, wait. So he's like twelve feet and like ten feet wide. He's enormous. Hey, okay. He's got a Jenky like dirty coat, and like what looks like a doublet with a big buckle over it. Then he came on Harry Potter night. The doubt the bouncers would have let him in otherwise. Very strict dress code here. It looks like as you get up. It looks like it should be like three guys inside a giant puppet suit or whatever. But it's clearly a person. The three kids in a trenchcoat. This sort of thing happens every once in a while where like a magical type person will come into your club, and you have to like shuffle them off to a private area. Oh, yeah. Deafness this'll probably be one of those situations. But now you see kids like start to like wave like they think it's a motion appearance. Yeah. Trying to get his attention. Hey. Okay. Yes. Among this approach is a purchase this hawking behemoth as I've dubbed him and kind of just goes up to him clearly on on guard, but you know, acting keeping cash keeping cool. You know, he's seen a lot. I can't say we've met. I haven't had the pleasure. What brings you? What brings you to my humble establishment on this same night? You'll know mug news. I s the one and only you're gonna wanna get in this bag, and he opens up his huge satchel. And you see a whirling maelstrom looks like space inside there. And he goes over and go much doggone. And you see over the corner of his shoulder. You see a young reporter, Veronica lamb, and she's coming over like, waving. She's got a camera guy with her and she's trying to get her attention normally ply her with champagne, and like, so she'd give good reviews of your club or whatever. Yeah. But then you see a bunch of dudes with sunglasses and suits running towards you. You see some coming from the third floor and your security is like something's happening. And then somebody shoots a gun in the air. Stuff's winding down. Break my club. Okay. Okay. This is not great screams and stumbles towards you and she falls onto her knees. And she looks to her left looks up at this gigantic, man. And then she sees inside the bag and she's like mesmerized. Okay, motherfuckers starts shooting. Cool. So to the tall guy. We can't do this here. There's too many Mondays present follow me and tries to like bring him back to the back room. Dodging a violence around. He's like oh, oh oh. And then. Like people start screaming. Yeah. Inc. We're talking and veronica's like. And somebody comes up behind her and points a gun at her head. And goes you're coming with us if directed at me. Dear Hagrid reaches down a hand for you to take it. It's pandemonium in your club. People are screaming like somebody got shot apparently turned out the club correctly pandemonium in pandemonium. Okay. Let's see can I just sort of magic at someone. You know, like hit the guy with a gun was like imagine bolt without be like. Yup. Yeah. You want to get him away from veronica's? Yeah. Sure. So yeah. You could either target the gun or the guy. I'll target the guy just said like a sort of to knock him back. Okay. So it's just straight force. Yeah. Just like. Cool. So so magic and presence that'll be seven cards, plus your uninjured. So that's eight. Okay. So I picked I just dry cards. Okay. Oh, and it's the first flip of the game. So you get an extra one. Okay. Well, too. Two. And if you get anything between ten and a face card. That's a success remain ten in ace, you know? Okay. Wow. I have one two three four. I saw an I- poop can I second car. I drew was the Queen of hearts. Oh, so that is that's really and then and then three so that six cards, so essentially because it's just force. You have the guy he goes flying his gun like flies out of his hand. He knocks into like he turns kinda sideways and knocks over three of his other gunmen. And they go flying through the crowd veronica's saved haggard reaches over and grabs her and throws her in the bag, and then he and then he points, and he's like, no time. Locked the president. I guess you. Give me no choice. Okay. Gunshots. Come on. All right into the vibe. We go as pose. And then he jumps in it behind you. Okay. You guys are swirling. It's real weird. A little queasy. And then you land on a whole bunch of feather pillows, and then haggard comes flying down out of the sky and the two of you stumble out of the way and. Feathers go up into the air this giant plume, and he he kinda rolls over. He's got like one. But she kaffa on you and veronica's like face down in a bunch of pillows struggling to get out and all around you. It's like a field of pillows for like thirty forty feet in all directions and then darkness. Darkness. So my miss that attempts to extricate himself from. This tangle of Hagrid pillows notice he use magic to like do mundane little things like death load up and stand. Okay. So you kind of float up and stand up and make a harden the pillows, so they're they're a flat platform, and you stand up. Fixing the luck except hair make sure over to up she she stands up. She's looking around like an Hagrid just slide rolling around trying to get onto his feet Magnus is definitely sort of checking in with veronica's at her name. You know, making sure she's all right? All of that. I'm okay. But who's that shooting at us? I'm not sure don't worry about it. You're you're safe. With me. We were Julio my camera guy. He's. Way. Don't don't worry. Don't worry. You look up and the the weird bluish opening that you came through has now like is changing into a full moon. And then the blackness all around is starting to turn into a night sky. See if elite few clouds, and some swing trees, and it's dark, but you kind of get a sense that that you're in some sort of sparse forest here. Brooke babbling nearby. Are they familiar stars which should be an intelligence and investigation? So that'll be five cards. Okay. I got four fails and a joker. Oh. Looks normal. The you. Cool. We are we. Fuck it by now. Actually near like, you're like, I think I think we're still in New York. Somebody hit the bottle too hard tonight. Right. Hey, Greg finally gets to his feet and the pillows start to melt and dissipate and all of a sudden you realize they're just leaves. And they start to billow up and swirl away. You realize it's autumn which it wasn't. Lift it's it's wintertime, right? It's New Year's Eve. And and you see all these pretty leaves go flying around. And then you hear a train whistle. And you see a light off in the distance. And there's a short rise about maybe ten twenty feet in one direction and haggard starts to get up in head that direction. And he goes, KOMO new. Wait a minute. Who is this? I grabbed she important. She is she's a friend. But before I follow you anywhere. Who are you rubies agreed to service the truth? Please. Noon to stand as mnay your name, you are named after the famous book character ruby s hybrid. And you expect me to believe this water new bub blue of machine. Thymus really Amina been through some things Budel. Nights coup. Where did you really about me? This is exciting. And he starts to like giggle. This is frowning trying to work this out you hear the train whistle again. And now the lights really big. And it's like really close, and you realize train is slowing down and their steam going up and Veronica looks up at you. And she goes this is not happening. This is not happening. And then he goes fringe seems to be a losing a nerve you go to anything you can give it a coma. Dan, you're a wizard rut. Withered I suppose he starts rummaging around in his bag and he pulls out a pipe and hands it to her. And she looks at you like what? It sounds like a fire lighter and cracks it into. She starts puffing away on it gopher on IKA. Oko MU news, my dear. Excessive? I rolling Hagrid. Smooth mine. Yes, I may ask what is it? Exactly that you that you do. Will a work at the school. Yeah. Yeah. The school. What's up buckets? Fake nerd. I. Oh, God pig. No, a Hogwarts. Oh, you know, we train young wizards. Would thought you would've would've at least of us. Farce has gone on long enough. You come in to my business you attack. My friends you kidnapped me, the least you can give me the truth Hagrid. Drew dis and the train totally slows and you see it's a really old timey looking train and adore opens. He says the truth days would isn't danger. And we need your help. I'm this sort of narrows his eyes trustingly door slides open and someone you never would have expected to see come stepping down out of the train. It's the doorman at your building havi air and he's looking around. He looks a little confused, and then he steps down onto the gravelly part on the side of the train track. And he looks down. And he sees you in Haggar gives them a wave, and he comes hustling down, and he goes Magnus a so I don't really know what's going on. Exactly. But we needed to find you something really bad is happening. And and this guy is a part of it. I mean, it's not a part of the bad thing. But like he's anyway, they thought you'd. Need somebody that you recognize? So, you know, it's it's on the level. I've been your doormen now for three years and reason I got the job is because I was supposed to look out for you. Oh. And and so I found out these guys we're going to come after you. And so I made the phone call in. I guess that's why you're here. Why is Veronica Lamey? How? You mean to say you've been spying on me? No, not spy mean just look out for you. Make sure you you come in and out, you know, like if you if you're in town, I knew kind of where you are. I mean, I guess there's more more of us. I guess look, it's kind of complicated. But. Basically, the world's come into an it. That again. Isn't it always haggard like rubs his temples? And he goes to be onus. I didn't really believe me amino been through a lot. He's last few years put on ever really thought the world would end for real. But after what happened to the city of fire. I'll believe anything city of fire. Is city of far in a place. We called red world a it just disappeared. I mean, millions of people just disappeared. We heard about it. Through a magic book that we've got anyway, the wizards sent me to to investigate and was how I met this guy. Year. Here's like, I know it's confusing. Right. But basically, there's a whole bunch of us that trying to save the world, and I guess now you too. A report of it. Hm? I've been is really does not want to trust these people, but going to go with it for now, you know, all of a sudden you hear an enormous explosion comes from farther down the train and fuck and lights. And I mean, it just looks like a firework show erupts into the air about I don't know fifty to one hundred feet and then another one boom like bits the train or flying. Oh, gee, isn't another one boom. And you see this thing complying across and blotting out the stars. And it's huge and black and terrifying. Nine kind of pushes Veronica behind him. You know, like, you know, protecting protective. What what is that? Starts running down the link that the train track. Like is blubber rumbling all over the place. And you see him like Fultz in about with something in a bag like bits of herbs and stuff or go flying. By havi airs running like trying to stay up. Right. He's trying to help. Veronica, STAN or feet and thing is done a pass in his coming back towards you. And now, you're running basically directly at it. Hag Meg ra- goes. And like turns and heads into the forest. My goodness will follow them. I think not it's not engage until we know more about this black flying, whatever. Yeah. So my miss also book in it. All of a sudden you hear a giant explosion off to your left fucking trees and fire goes straight up. Second later, another one just off to the right? Okay. And up ahead. You hear all kinds of shouting. And it sounds like troops moving into position. And you're just going into this dark forest lined haggard has made some kind of light appear in its floating along above you. And then he points off to the right and the light shoots off in that direction. And he goes follow it. Okay. Yeah. Intelligence and investigation flip. So that would be four plus one because you're not injured. Okay. For five so ace's our successes, right? So three successes. Very cool. So you can see there's a little person inside that light. So some kind of fairy creature interesting. Okay. Yeah. I think monitors will follow the light and sort of shepherd along a Veronica like he would be the the last the last one, you know, bringing up the rear and sort of checking behind him for anything following you. See the light start to go up this gravelly rock face. And there's some kind of maybe a cave up there just past the the light creature and Hagara turns and he throws some stuff up into the air. And then he blows a horn and something rises out of the earth. And he goes good into. Five. Yeah. I've MRs just sort of shepherding Veronica, you know, go go get in get in havi or pushes you and Veronica into the cave, and he turns and he pulls out a one, and he goes goes far as you can as fast as you can just get out of here. Why shouldn't be door go through it? What is that thing? I can say I can no time to talk to go through the door. Fine. We're talking later. The last thing you see is the giant head of a black dragon on some kind of huge earth creature doing battle and haggard like behind it and Javier's blast enough like fireballs, okay? At the end of this tunnel. UC a golden doorway like shimmering, and there's weird symbols and Syjuco all around it. And Veronica like brakes a heel. And now, she's stumbling. Poor thing. Branca's going to have to deal thrown shit. Magnus approaches the door, and sort of examines, the did you say there were like runes or markings or something as soon as you get within ten feet of it, this kind of pale Pearl colored door with gold all around it and symbols and things flies in like it opens up inward and beyond it. You just see this like bright sunny landscape. It's like all white and yellow and you can smell like a salty kind of smell. But it's dry and ozone. The back of the cave behind you like shakes and rocks. Come flying at you, hit your back and hit Veronica she goes. They're kinda hot like some of them sticking your hair and her Sinjin your skin. Not my hair. Our no. I'm this kind of positive sort of looking looking back and forth in that like shit. You like. Don't like any of this. And he grabs grabs Veronica by the arm sort of to help her and also drag her. Against my better judgment. But come on. Let's go we have. Let's just go. We'll we'll figure it out when we get there and coach her through the door. Okay. As you get out, you realize that there's a little bit of a drop and tumble out, and you drop and you hit the ground. You both hit it on your back and you roll away from each other. And it's like you roll through like an inch or two thick of just pure salt. And in all directions. It's like white day hot as hell, and you see a few blackbirds circling around the few hundred feet off to one side and the door closes well shit. Nive sort of gets to his feet sort of brushing assaults off of his close the sand crunch when you walk on it. Remember walking? I mean, sorry salt. It doesn't relate a lot. I mean, it's how how fine is this salt? Is it like table salt or like rock, Saul? It's like table. So. Okay. I mean, it's it's more like dust than anything. Okay. Okay. So I've missed sort of gets a tries to brush himself off and goes over to help help Veronica up sort of check make sure she's doing. Okay. You help her to her feet. And she just looks at you like she is so stunned. Yeah. She has no idea what's going on. She's like was that the guy from the movies? Here. It's. You're dreaming. Don't worry about it. This is often the directions you'd see this like hazy kind of Marashi thing going on and then slowly through it. You see some kind of shape than it coalesce into a big kind of lumbering shape in a skinnier shape next to it. And as it arrives closer, you see it's a guy with a mule and a bird on his shoulder. Trundling is way to your direction. Agnes sort of like kind of half pushes Veronica a little bit behind him and sorta just stands there in a defensive position. He's on ED's. He's ready to you know, magic fireball at any moment. Okay. He's ready to wreck shit. So this guy and his mule get get a little bit closer, and he waves discount a friendly wave. Frowns? He looks a little Mace aided a little stooped. Bless you. Thank you got a patch on and he's got a crow on his shoulder, and then this mule with some saddlebags or whatever, and he just keeps moving towards you waving. Okay. Always within one hundred feet. He hasn't said anything he just kind of kind of waving. Coughs a little bit. And then he goes up. Hello stranger. Hello. Hail and well met and to you. Where is this place?

Listener supported W. nyc studios. I want to tell you about just one day of trump's Washington. April thirtieth two, thousand eighteen. Nine top executives from t mobile. Check into the trump international hotel in Washington DC with their names on a list of VIP arrivals. They arrive in Washington at a critical moment. Just the day before the company had shared some big news team mobile and sprint announcing yesterday they still the blockbuster. Deal agreement T mobile is set to by Sprint for a whopping twenty, six billion dollars to complete the deal. The company needs approval from the justice. Department one block away from the trump hotel. Hanging out in the lobby in his trademark hot pink and Black T. Mobile. Hoodie. CEO John Ledger is instantly recognizable to hotel guests he and the other exacts aren't just patronizing the president's hotel. They're advertising they're doing so. In. The original same evening check. Sam. In a closed-door sweet justice the hotel lobby. More lobbying is going on. A small group of political donors dining with the president of the United States. Method that you shut down. So every truck now. The guests include a steel magnate who complains to the president about roles limiting the number of hours truckers can be on the road. A property developer who is just holding the next summit with Kim? Jong. UN. And a site he built near Salt if you would. Consider. song-bo also in the mix. Too then obscure businessman either from in which report from you and left Parnasse. They'd security invite to the dinner after promising three hundred twenty five, thousand dollar donation to America first. Action Trump aligned super PAC. They also have something they want from the president or the purchasing A. Ukraine right now that should. The US ambassador in Kief Maria von beach stands in their way we guard your Basler is she still leftover from the Clinton administration where the investment where you great. Yeah. She's basically walk around telling everybody wait he's GonNa get impeached just wait like this is a fabrication. Trump's reaction is strong. Of. Oak. Take her out. It. Took a year. For trump. Did get rid of her. The other person's staying at the hotel that Night T. Mobile's John Ledger. After. All of t mobile spending at the trump hotel was ferreted out by the Washington Post. Ledger tweeted he trusted regulators to make their decision based on the benefits it will bring to the US not based on hotel choices. On the regulators did make the decision. What he wanted to get is now official a federal judge approving the merger between T. Mobile and sprint. It rejects argument from a group of states that said the deal would violate in laws in raise prices you're looking at. Sprint stock now sixty percent. This is trump. I'm Andrea Bernstein I'm elliot merits. It's last episode before the final day of voting for four years Andrea and I have been reporting on how Donald Trump is profiting from the presidency the way his family prophets the way people in his administration like profit the way a whole specifically trumpian industry of access has grown up around the president. The Snapshot Andrea gave is not unusual. It shows what's happened to our government because as t mobile gets its merger as to businessmen sidelining ambassador the government itself is increasingly tool of private interests, not the public interest. This past summer, our friends at New York magazine came to us and they asked if I wanted to help create a list of people sort of a, who's who of individuals who profited in some way from trump being in the White House? It's a stunning list and you can find it in the current issue of New York magazine. Any one of the entries from the list might have derailed a previous administration. As we were putting together the list something really came into focus for us. The story of corruption in the trump administration is interest about individual people or their actions. It's about how trump's way of doing business has pervaded our entire democracy. That's the story we're telling today. It's like a four year experiment in what happens when you don't refrigerate your leftovers in these conditions, a lot of mold can bloom. So today on the show, a TRIPTYCH, the cabinet secretary, who is business partners with China while negotiating a trade deal with the Chinese. The lawyer who's done more than any single person to keep the president's business records the key to understanding his conflicts out of. The third story is about the president himself and the way he's wielded his constitutional perogatives to pardon and commute criminal sentences. It's his most monarchic power to make problems disappear Intel allies, I can protect you. Trump reporter may Kramer starts us off. A. Act One tone at the top. There is a moment right before trump became president that we add trump bank talk about all the time to be here today at president-elect trump's request. It was when Sherry Dillon one of trump's lawyers walked out in front of a group of journalists and trump supporters to announce that president elect trump had a plan to separate himself from his business. He directed me and my colleagues at the law firm, Morgan Lewis and bacchus to design a structure for his business empire that would completely isolate him from the. Management of the company trump was not going to sell his assets or put them in a blind trust like past presidents Dylan. made it clear. He didn't have to his voluntarily taking this on the conflicts of interest laws simply do not apply to the president or the vice president, and they are not required to separate themselves from their financial assets. Instead, she said trump would hand over management of the business to his eldest sons, which meant trump would still have a financial stake and what happened to his company. Dave vesting. Sherry Dillon said would be unfair to trump president-elect trump should not be expected to destroy the company he built. This plan offers a suitable alternative to address the concerns of the American people. This plan is one that allows the president to funnel taxpayer money directly into his business whenever he visits his properties. Over the last four years, we have seen so many consequences flow from this moment when trump said, he would not disentangle himself from his financial interests. Inside Trump Inc, we sometimes refer to it as the original sin of the trump presidency. Is, going, to get my, you want me to hold up the recorder now. Yeah. That'd be great. Okay we're good. This is Dan Alexander. He's a reporter at Forbes I called him up because I have been thinking about one consequence of trump's decision not to divest, and that is the message it sends to the people who work in his administration. Dan has been reporting on one cabinet official in particular who has a lot of power and a lot of complicated financial interests who failed to separate those interests from his work for the government. Can you start by telling me who was Wilbur Ross before he joined the trump administration or what was his reputation? So Wilbur Ross the. Part of the account is known as a private equity billionaire, the population who wasn't afraid to go into complicated situations and to kind of rough and tumble industry's demands. Coal steal stuff that Scott dirt under the fingernails the millennials are not spending at the same rate says, one of his specialties was negotiating complex bankruptcies. This brought him into contact with trump in the early nineties when investors wanted to take over trump's struggling Atlantic city casinos, Ross helped convince them to keep trump involved and when trump then says that he's going to run for president. He starts making some declarations about why he believes that trump's trade policy is really really smart. He also hosts fundraisers for trump and sort of a big backer, and then after trump wins, you know he receives one of the first appointments to be Secretary of Commerce. The commerce secretary oversees everything from trade to the national weather, service to the census. It is not a flashy position. It is a powerful one. Like trump Ross had all of these business entanglements when he stepped into the role, what's supposed to happen in that process? When someone goes from working in private industry to being a cabinet official? What are the rules for separating yourself from Your Business Yeah? So the first thing you have to tell everyone what you own and that sort of gives people a sense of what it is that you have and. Where there might be potential conflicts, and then the next thing that you're supposed to do is you're supposed to divest everything. So trump does not legally have to do this because the criminal conflicts of interest statute doesn't apply to the president, but it does apply to the Secretary of Commerce. So Wilbur Ross then has to sell off everything in his portfolio that could overlap with his responsibilities as secretary of Commerce. And he doesn't have to do it right away. You've got you know a little bit of a grace period so you can do it over several months and you're making the promise that is. Going to stay away from anything that could be related to my own financial interests in that intervening period. Stick to that promise? No, he did not. Just give you one example. He didn't disclose one of his holdings in a railcar company called Greenbrier but then not only did he not disclose it but then he held a meeting with the CEO of Greenbrier in the basement of the White House when the Greenbrier CEO was in town to talk about government matters. and. There's some ethics officials who think that even if you just take the meeting that's already a crime but certainly, if you act upon any business things that you learn in the meeting, that's a crime. Wilbur Ross says that they didn't talk about business that was a purely social meeting. But that wasn't the only meeting. He met with. CEO of Chevron. When his wife still held a large interest in Chevron and for purposes of the law, his wife holds an interest in a company. It's the same thing as if he owns an interest in a company is just as vulnerable from a legal perspective and there are other meetings. You know he meets with the CEO Boeing and at that time again, his wife holds what looks like a multimillion dollar stake in Boeing, we can see the calendars we can see that they're talking business. I've been thinking a lot about this idea of the appearance of a conflict of interest men I think what some of your reporting on Wilbur Ross shows is that it is almost impossible to know based on publicly available records whether or not. He is truly conflicted because it involves knowing what his intent is I mean in many ways the appearance of a conflict of interest is the best indicator that we have. You can't get inside somebody's head. Wilbur Ross changes policy because I own millions of dollars with Chevron stock, but that's not going to happen you know and. The reason that the laws are set up sooner then you have to divest at the start. Is that then nobody has to wonder. It seems like another issue here is the limits of disclosures. Yeah. That's right. So I'll give you a perfect example of that. So Wilbur Ross on his filings discloses that he has an interest in something and I'm not going to remember the exact name of it, but it's something like D. S. IV four. Okay. Now, that entity holds a company called diamond shipping. dislosures don't say is that another one of the big investors in diamond as shipping is the government of China. So you have the sector of commerce comes in to negotiate trade deals on behalf of the United States and he is business partners. With the government of China while he's in that position and he doesn't have to disclose that on his federal ethics filings. By contrast if somebody does pay you two hundred dollars you do after disclose that if they pay to directly. What is Wilbur Ross have to say about all of this not much about the meetings that he held they've taken the general position that he hasn't violated any laws. You know he failed to disclose not just the greenbrier holding but several other things that he owned as well. I mean in some minor stuff like he. said that he had vested. Stake in his former employer, which is called INVESCO. And he later ended up admitting that he actually still held on more than ten million dollars of INVESCO stock. That's not a that's not a small amount of money. Their position on those issues are that he just didn't realize that he owned him. Democratic. Lawmakers wrote to the Inspector General of the Commerce Department asking for an investigation into Ross's conflicts of interest. A spokesperson there told us that the matter is still under review. Ross has divested his stake in INVESCO and entities that held diamonds shipping. Do you think the rules around divestment are different under trump than in past administrations? Well, the rules aren't different. You know the rules are pretty clear if you are in the executive branch and you're not the president where you're not the vice president, then you have to get rid of stuff that could pose a conflict. Now in previous administrations, the president and vice president have acted like those rules applied to them. anyways even though they don't, and that sets an example you know I mean if you look at like any corporate structure, you know people talk about tone at the top you know what's the example that the CEO is setting and people will follow that example you talk to people who've worked in office, of government, ethics, and they point to the fact that. You. Know they always knew that they could count on. If. Some person in the administration who wasn't doing exactly what they wanted they could place one call to the Oval Office and that person somewhere in some department would be whipped in shape about fifteen minutes. Place call anymore. In trump's administration taking meetings that you have a personal stake in forgetting to divest ten million dollars in stock failing to disclose your holdings. None of these things disqualify you from holding one of most powerful positions in government. Dan Alexander is a reporter at Forbes and author of the Book White. House Inc. how Donald Trump turned the presidency into a business. Act to the Fifth Avenue example. The middle, panel of this trip take a portrait of someone. You probably don't know, but it was very, very important to the President Attorney William. Constant boy. As the Wilbur Ross story shows us so many conflicts sprung from trump's decision not to separate himself from his company. Understanding the full extent of those conflicts that's been nearly impossible because we haven't seen trump's tax returns and other business records. Keeping them away from scrutiny is constable is job. If you have heard of William Convoy. It's likely because of an exchange that took place in a Manhattan courtroom in October of two thousand nineteen. There's a hearing call the white columned. Thurgood. Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan is before the Second Circuit, court of Appeals. In morning you may be seated. The Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Junior suspecting criminal fraud has been trying to get trump tax returns trump sued to block the subpoena. And his lawyer appealed but your your position, as you said, a moment ago is that the immunity is absolute. In. Court. Lawyer William convoy argues for a novel concept. Temporary absolute immunity. Absolutely. Yes. Judge Denny. Chen asked console if the president still have temporary absolute immunity, if say his shot someone on Fifth Avenue. What's your view on on the the Fifth Avenue example. Local authorities couldn't investigate. They couldn't do anything about it. I think once the. President is. REMOVED FROM OFFICE BILL ANY LOCAL AUTHORITY? This is not a permanent immunity. Well, I'm talking about while in office now the HYPO- there. Could be done. That's your position. That is correct. Cancer boy lost. Each time he lost, he appealed the case kept going up and up and up and the whole time trump didn't have to turn over his tax returns. In the very first court hearing back in the fall of last year Vance's lawyers argued that for trump a delay was a win. They were arguing that still when the case got to the US Supreme Court in the late spring, trump lost their to. Constantly delayed the reckoning some more. He went back to court with a new case lost again and appealed again. We will hear trump vance and now the hearings or by phone because of the virus. Your And good more mortgage Raymond. Asks if there's any request for documents, convoy wouldn't consider overbroad request documents. In this case. That would not in your view the over. What? Happened No. I think the answer probably million or here's why would just go back. Because problems. You see the problem. I see why you're concerned like the you guessed it. Lost and appealed. And this trump vance investigation it's just one of the cases over trump business records that convoys firm has worked on. There was an emoluments wrought by the governments of Virginia and Washington DC alleging the president is unconstitutionally accepting money or benefits from farner domestic governments. Constantly lost in the Fourth Circuit and is appealing. then. There were two cases involving congressional subpoenas one to trump's bankers Deutsche Bank and went his accountancy Missouri's USA. Convoy also lost those cases at the district and appeals levels and also appeal to the supreme. Court. The court said, the house could subpoena the president but their requests had to meet a heightened standard. Then we go. Wrangling is virtually certain to last pass January. When these subpoenas expire along with a one hundred and Sixteenth Congress. As. Much work as convoy has in this area trump's finances. It's actually a relatively new line for him his firm. The he was known for his trump work he was known for his work on voting. So William Controversy was one of the key lawyers and developing the strategy around a Supreme Court case called Shelby County v Holder in two thousand thirteen. This is crystal worth of the WNYC podcast the United States anxiety. The shelby case was a big test of a provision of the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five, and so they struck it down and that made it impossible. Then to enforce this law section five, which is still on the books, but there's no way to implement it. Now, it's considered one of the most important pieces of civil rights legislation ever passed. But by five to four, the US Supreme Court today took the teeth out of a law enacted nearly fifty years ago. The decision which said the US Justice, department no longer had to pre approve voting changes that might suppress black votes. Was a body blow to the Voting Rights Act and a lot of people in the. Voting rights community really really felt that body blow. This election cycle convoys doing even more work on voting. So spoke with Marc Elias, he's the lawyer on the democratic side working on voter suppression issues in the way that he described him is you know constantly even though he's not in all of these cases, he is acting in his words as the field general in this battle and his law firm is their army. Doesn't mean that they're in every case, but it appears that they are the cases that matter the most to the president and the. Concept. Was the lawyer back in the spring of Twenty, twenty in Wisconsin. Were the US Supreme Court ruled against changes. That made it easier to record votes during the pandemic. Wisconsin isn't the only state here concept was involved in a lawsuit in California for example, where the state decided to mail ballots to every registered voter he was arguing against that in Nevada the secretary of state there had decided to only open one in person pulling site in each county the Democrats had filed a lawsuit to open more polling. Sites and controversy was arguing against that he was involved in a case in Montana. He was involved in another case in Rhode. Island. He's been involved in a number of cases over the past seven months. Council has certainly gained prestige and circles for all this work and federal records show his firm has made over two and a half million dollars and counting from the campaign and the RNC for his legal work. Just. In the past year. We don't know how much firm has built for the simultaneous where he's done on the president's private behalf. In trump vance, trump FEMA CZARS, trumpy deutschebank, trumping the District of Columbia trump committee on ways and means, and so on. Neither the white. House. Nor the trump organization nor convoy or his law firm consular McCarthy answered our enquiries. So ear left with this. When Donald Trump sued his accountant's to prevent them from releasing his tax returns to Congress. Comfortably. McCarthy argued that the house was improperly engaged in quote law enforcement. When a law enforcement officer the Manhattan. Da Tried to investigate convoy had a different argument. Here's Judge Chin of the second circuit, and so if if the president were to commit a crime, no matter how heinous whether he did it before he took office or whether he took it, he did it after he took office, he could not be the subject of any even investigation that's the position yes until. Of course, Congress retains the impeachment power but when impeachment came around trump's legal team led thereby jaysekulow argued something else. That, the articles of impeachment were quote a dangerous attack on the right of American people to freely choose their president. And the practical effect of convoys legal claims on voting issues? is to constrict. The number of Americans. Who Get to freely choose? Their President Even, when he loses convoy has mastered, what might be called Trump's art of litigation, which is to keep making legal arguments. No matter how far outside the mainstream. To use the judicial system against itself. As of this recording, the US Supreme Court hasn't ruled about whether it will hear Trump v Vance a second time but for purposes of understanding the president's business records in time for action. It doesn't matter. Constantly has succeeded. His run out the clock. All right back. The September eleventh terrorist attacks changed the world. There's a sense that they came out of nowhere they didn't. I'm Jim O'Grady and in my new podcast, I'm going to revisit the evidence in question the people at the center of the story I don't WanNa, use the word panic. Let's penetrate hisself. I. Blindspot the road to nine eleven a new podcast series from history and WNYC studios listened wherever you get your podcast. More back. You're listening to trump INC and today we're looking at how the trump way of doing business has embedded itself into American democracy. act. Three Pardon me. In May something new showed up in the PODCAST carousel. Hi. This is rob Roy. Vich had welcome to the lightning. Rod podcast. This is my first podcast. He's bear with me. I've never done this before lightning rod with Rod Blagojevich the only podcast hosted by former governor convicted of bribery and attempted extortion who sentence was commuted by president trump. That's not the official show description Laghouat walked out of prison in February by May. He was sharing his story that was sitting in prison. Watching the news and following his campaign in two thousand and sixteen once he was a Democrat now blagojevich calls himself a trump crap and I think he's a trump to a lot of democrats around the country working people who the Democratic Party today's Democrat Party have abandoned and forgotten, which has history with trump between his arrest and his trial. He was a contestant on celebrity apprentice Harry Potter facts were not accurate. Who did the research? There was not a specific direction to the research on Harry Potter but the inability to learn the product after he went to prison on a fourteen year sentence and after trump was sworn in as president rods wife Patti. Campaigned on TV to get trump to free her husband, she was on Fox a lot. She linked special counsel Robert Muller to her husband's prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. She accused the authorities of spying on her husband in much. The same way she claimed they spied on trump's allies the latest revelations about how the Pfizer Court and how they used. slander was essentially opposition research slander against the president to you know to spy on him and just like the allegation that they used against my husband to get six wiretaps on all of our phone lines. The ability to make pardons. Mutations is one of the few presidential powers with almost no constraints. Trump likes unconstrained power and every year he's been in office. He's found more and more cases he thinks are worthy of clemency sheriff Joe Arpaio who defied a court order to stop the use of racial profiling military officers convicted of war crimes, ranchers who committed arson on public land. He sees this as a tool for you know, expanding his authority expanding his influence winning political points, making his enemies, heads explode, and the like Jack Goldsmith was assistant attorney general. In the George W Bush administration. He's a professor now at Harvard prompted by. The pardons ideological allies and sycophants. Goldsmith assembled all of trump's pardons and commutations in a spreadsheet. I just wanted to try to figure out an objective where possible what was different about trump not knowing what they would find Goldsmith and his collaborator Matthew Gluck created one column for pardons that advanced a political agenda. One for cases with personal connections trump one for TV appearances like Patti Goya Vich on. Fox, and the fourth and last one for cases brought to the attention of president by celebrities and so what what was your overall finding then? Basically, trump position thirty, nine pardons or commutations of sentences and an astonishing thirty, four of those. Satisfied one of those criteria and the general in other words thirty, four, thirty, nine pardons were self serving in some way. Since my interview with Jack Goldsmith trump gave clemency to five additional people mostly for drug offenses. Typically, in the past presidents have pardoned criminals who show real remorse or punished too harshly it's rare to pardon an ally and that's really remarkable finding here as I say some presidents in the past, especially at the very end of their terms have issued cell serving pardons. But those are exceptional. Trump has a practice of it and he did it before the end of his term. So. There was Paul Pogue, a Texas construction executive who was pardoned for tax crimes after his family gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to trump aligned political groups, media baron. Conrad Black was convicted of obstruction and fraud and extradited to Canada. After he wrote an adoring book about trump, he got a pardon Kim Kardashian took up the cause of Alice. Marie Johnson who was convicted of non-violent drug crimes after trump freed her Johnson. Spoke at his convention. But by the grace of God and the compassion, a President Donald John Trump I standard for you. Tonight, the pardon power has a cost less act to him. Personally, it's literally involves signing a piece of paper. So, whatever he gets in return is in some kind of very reductive way more than what took him to do it especially since he says, shame listen doesn't care about the political outcry in some cases showing clemency may do a lot more for trump when the president issued a commutation to Roger Stone he shielded appear in the twenty sixteen campaign and someone who became a target of special counsel Robert. Muller. Stone said things that let us Blake this. That Mahler was pressuring stone to reveal instances in which trumpet lied to the Special Counsel that stone kept quiet and this was basically a pay offer as quietude. Now, we don't know that there's some circle edge dental evidence pointing to it, but it shows the extraordinary danger of the pardon being able to use essentially to obstruct justice and protect the president. Even the suggestion of a pardon may have an effect a toppmoller prosecutor enter Weisman believes that trump's public dangle of a pardon for Paul manafort influenced Manafort's decision to stop sharing information with law enforcement. The only real constraint on the use of pardons is public opinion. People still remember the Stink Bill Clinton's part of tax evader, Democratic Party donor. Mark Rich. Goldsmith who just co authored a book called after trump reconstructing the presidency believes that if trump loses in the November election, he won't hesitate to pardon friends and family anyone who may be subject to an investigation. By the next administration for Federal Crimes. Members of this family for example, and others he can just issue a blanket pardon for all of that and therefore take away the possibility of criminal prosecution for those federal crimes. And most significantly, he could pardon himself. he could issue a so called self pardon which has never been done, and frankly no president has hinted at it trump his claim that he has the power to do this. He tweeted in two thousand eighteen as has been stated by numerous legal scholars. I have the absolute right to pardon myself. But why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong. There is no case law on this. A president pardoning himself is so unthinkable not one has ever tried.

I lost my deleted lake in my legs. My brain wasn't signaling To move it. Let's say okay. Let's go for a walk. Legs usually do Peasley. Don't think about it it's instinct islay leg would get caught behind the trip. It was just any bananas. Raise the Jaffe of modern. Excuse for yourself but lingerie shore. I ended up coming. The Dow was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. which is Leeann incurable? Cancer of the nervous. Don't hit everybody still different. So there's zero predictability disability in it so since then I was at the doom and gloom dude. Sorry I'm doing here but I know this. This is aren't okay I was I was basically vegetable. I mean my husband and I were married for two and a half years. I had this newborn that I couldn't take care of Christ. I was so sick I could see her here at one point a couldn't move walking. I remember crawling because my legs wouldn't function to make a bottle from my little dude and it was like this eck lake make or break. This is my life is going to be my life there deal with a and B Petty Party just sad and be zero used use to my husband in a sign or look the switch take control study what I can do from a diet perspective or what can I control. I am sad and my diet. So things have changed and I studied neural plasticity. which basically has thought reframing so taking every thought that comes into your mind reframing at to a positive and I started out about brains and now I'm the most irritatingly positive I the lottery gray okay? Here's here's what's so great and I mean there's a lot to weave in and out of that in but you know right away as people are listening and again. These are some of the things that I've gotten from you over the last few months. which is you Attributed yourself at one point to like piglet even though it was the personality just like a no go right and so you you talked about that And then you know even addressing pressing like you know this this this deep deep struggle that you have had and I have appreciated and some of what. I'm sure we're GONNA talk about like what I have. Appreciated the most Shantelle about you over the last I would say couple of months that I have observed is the fact that like you can be the most positive person in the world. Clearly you are extremely aware of yourself and your body and you've worked hard through all of this but that that doesn't mean that there are days that life just absolutely sucks. Yeah I appreciate the fact that you are I mean. Obviously there's I'm sure there's I think that you know you keep yourself we all do but you are so honest and transparent about And I think that as you're stepping through such a potentially devastating disease is that impacts your life your work clearly your marriage The ability to be a mom That you're just willing to lay it all out there and allow people the C.. You for who you are. Yeah I mean when I was going through A. It's something that he can feel so alone. People with Nasser actually twice as likely to you have suicidal thoughts and try to commit suicide which is insane for mental. How it the reason is is you feel alone feels so oh alienating so I feel like by leaning in trauma by leading in shoe disease or illness in your almost taking control? You're not getting more power. So that's why I like to share it in the sense that I don't want anybody to Agra feel as as long as I felt when I began. I mean I was block island and bedridden and now I am making a living vein doing what I love every single day and really really got it. There's nothing stop you other then yourself. Yeah well yeah I mean again so this is something that's talked about a lot. We talk about the fact that we have to focus on the things that we control. This is something that I work with my clients on his office I possibly can. I talked to my kids about all the time right. Focus on what you all. It's about effort not outcome and so so let's just like dig into that so you Even today right or no. Let's talk about early on so early on you start understanding you have this disease disease and the only way that you are truly going to overcome it is by reframing your mind practically what does that look Gleich like I mean are you just talking yourself out of like being in pain or being ruled like what is that. It's it's hard but it becomes. He comes habitual It you know so whatever. That is catching yourself. Every single time you have a negative thought that crosses your mind. And I didn't didn't realize how disgustingly negative I was. I mean looking in the mirror and I also lost one hundred pounds because of the Diet that I've been onto control which is another control piece but I would look at the mirror and say you are one disgusting. He's a crap. Get your face look at your crooked. T butcher Double Level Chen. And all these things and then it wouldn't go into that would go like to dropping things with my ms so brain damage so my cognitive issues can slow. And I'll drop a fork or something. They stupid are you. How clumsy are you? Hope fat worthless are you and I really had it. Stop every single time without one of are those things which was like hundreds of times a day ridiculously high amount. I would just give it to positive so I drop it in like all right good. I'm getting a little outward Out leaning back here you can have this aware or I'm going to build a new system now that Scott Dirt on Ah Dessert for me to the Lok Each any little saw that I had to if I had one little thought had a negative thought ahead and think of two positive and then a few days by started become more natural like it didn't start. Start to feel funny making affirmations in the Mirror and saying you know what you're worth this you're going to get through this. You're strong. They feel shoot. The is but it's so powerful and know that the ultimate resource a source for wellness in mind sad and gratitude is in the food that I eat if I eat sugar. I'm a mass anxiety hangs Social Anxiety Gloria. I'm an introvert. So it's really hard to pull those pieces out and be social as public speaker if I'm not eating right foods which helps that bent clarity and just being the best version of yourself because you think that followed us. The hardest part sues really be happy. You deserve that success. Success user sex to radiant slipped. Where is your husband? Probably Sleeping Right now. The interview is she she did. I didn't do it. Ah Okay okay so so that all sounds fine well but it can so so much sound like an you alluded to this Mike. Hey I've got the secret. I just tell yourself you're better and you will be better right right like it's just it's so fluffy and I think there are so many bullshit self-help books and speakers I am I unfortunately I I'm not cynical about much but I am pretty cynical about the rod at so many people preach because like that actually becomes more debilitating being than just feeling like crap to begin with right like I feel terrible. Go in listened to somebody. Tell me how amazing I am. All I need to do is believe and then I go back and for a day they are too. I feel good and then all of a sudden thaw back into my lies and so now only not only am I believing the lies. I used to believe but now I'm also believing this new lie which is and I can't can't even talk myself out of it. No how do you steps through the. I mean I know like it's it's a lot of repetitive conversation with yourself. I I love the fact that you said that. We need to be habitual in bill bill habit into their spot. Like how do you begin in graining that in such a way because we are our own worst liar like we lie to ourselves more than anybody else right. We are jerks to ourselves. Yes we don't we. Seriously I it was is really being mindful of this Virtual activity of neuro plasticity framing. where I'm taking every single negative thought in building it to a positive positive and they start catching yourself saying no to everything? And you're like why am I saying no to these opportunities start saying yes and Opportunity Surf eight or you start your lay your foundation and say no. I'm going to get paid for every speaking opportunity from here here on out and the next thing you know you're saying all five hundred dollars. Five hundred turns into one thousand once you know and I mean your life changes when in an average he said it's not about it's about the offer it's about everything effort into it because that's what really matters at the end of the day so in terms of a question about creating a habit I again. You're talking to somebody who used to think all hippie ships you know what I mean. So the affirmations fasting your desk duty meditation was just for two and I started meditating every morning and night for thirty minutes. It depends but really centering in washing. My brain of of those terrible thoughts helped to start fresh so meditation in building. A routine are amazingly powerful for bringing in habitual success mentally. I should say okay. So you're on this journey and I mean today it's really easy easy to talk about because and I know you still obviously have your struggles but like you're doing well right like you found ways to overcome you've become a Very again well known You know people are attracted to you and your story and want to hear that for themselves but how do you begin working with an advocating for people. Because I know one of the one of the reasons that you know you and I ended up deciding to have this conversation here was because you know people role that are struggling with disease and I am very careful to save these words but like disability Because I don't want to impose things on other people that are not but like when people are stepping through these struggles for themselves. I mean you had the freedom to do this on your own kind of right like you write your own story you work for yourself How do you help? People Begin to step through similar struggles when their life is spiraling out of control. That's a a question and I. I know that that requires a massively. Strong community asked professional therapy. If that's your loved ones I think it it revolves offs different angles and perspectives for recovery. For anything like that but I reinforce every single time I have a conversation with somebody whether it's a client of trying to master their reputation or their From the different labels community and they're just trying to get into the workforce. Where would you say there? Ah would you say that you're the what the differently abled community district. It's all about words right and rhetoric in how we use them. And you're in an interview you can say that make you shine as a superhero versus a perceived limitation right. I love that. Yeah so so would I like to say is that we all are limited. You know we all have trauma. We all have blown that we have faced in the past. Different limitations are different based on who we are in our challenges adversity adversity relatives. You're worse day is so own so real for you or stay really real for me. It doesn't make mice rebels worse than yours or vice versa so having having that understanding and that baseline of the fact that we are all messed up but we are all worthy of ink successful and how does the start of work ago. Okay so here here we go I wanNA push back on you and I and and I know you're going to have an answer which I love so I believe that we all struggle. I mean I went through a period of anxiety and depression Shannon wanting to crawl into a hole just a couple of years ago that like you know a year prior. I would've never thought and so you know I have my struggles and I've gone through tragedy and everybody's he's gone through their say. Unfortunately I believe that some of those outwardly manifest themselves differently than others which then Dan creates a perception in society that causes that society to treat people differently to look at them differently. I WANNA believe Dave and I do with all my heart to the best of my ability believed that we have all been created with the same infinite amount of worse and value even no no we are uniquely created and we have unique experiences. I want to believe that and I try to do my best. But that's not the way people are treated and so then then when you let's just pretend for a second that you were working for an employer and you all of a sudden you get pregnant you go through this huge huge traumatic event that leads to now. Oh my gosh I have this disease and I can't walk and John I can't see straight and so I really can't come to work but I want you to work with me and that timeframe seems to be limited in people's tolerance of you right like so things do get treated so much differently than others and so what do you say to that because I feel like like we all want to again. We we all want to care for most people want care but sometimes times are are the way care looks changes and that can really be harmful to the people that are struggling with us the most. Oh Amen so I mean you bring up the worst epidemic in our society today which cultural perspective. We are comfortable with what we're used to. Because that's what we're used to so this is this is the way it must be. This is how it is. This is what rate in the world still not true inaccurate and the moment we opened in our minds up and embrace differences whether that's only physically culturally bats in the beauty happened and so I use this example right so I have a funny walk with my brain damage. I have a Olympe. which is it you can't tell but if I'm really bad if I'm really sick I will need a mobility device? So it had Parkin- a parking lot a handicapped parking spot. Somebody looks at noon says. Oh she's too young she chew. She's not overweight. She A Park. There I have people come up and say stuff like this to my peers to you. You're a must be a really good day for you or something like ah those conversations and remarks our defense mechanism for that person trying to stand up for something that they believe event it's ignorance it's not hatred so take that opportunity to educate them on the sense that So say I have a prostate cancer machines and they half word diapers because they will lose their vowels uncontrollably so when they park work at a at a grocery store they need to get in and out so quickly but they look healthy then they can have this conversation as saying listen. I haven't anticipation of invisible disability ability and in order to make this trip as painless and minimally humiliating as possible. I need US spot. And that's when the people are like really receptive and support it. You wouldn't believe it. I feel like the world is made up of allies. We just need to take the opportunity to educate and also not waste time because there are a lot of very evil people on this world that are frauds untrainable at some circumstance so so I don't know I really think about leading with love. Yeah I mean that is like it's it's great when you say right I. I think that it's it's always helpful. And this is what I appreciate again about. You being such an advocate for your own community and your own experience because if I as somebody that does not struggle with that type of challenge in life if I was to say to somebody that was physically physically disabled right like hey you need to do a better job of communicating to those around you and educating them on who they are and what they are whereas you've you've changed the whole conversation to say like you have an opportunity right like you struggle with this. Yes and I'm sorry and I want to help you grow grow through this and I want to help you get better and find solutions to help you heal. But all the while one of maybe the greatest purposes by which you carry this with you is to help educate those around you on how to walk through their own challenge and to understand people better and ultimately like you said to love one on another in the way that we were called to when we were created in the first place I mean we are all brothers and sisters in the human race. You're my brother sister whether you like it or not. We're similar and why should we let stupid shit like the color of her skin or gender identity. Divide divide us. It's stupid it's understanding. I think at the yeah. Yeah I mean this goes back man. I referenced this quote all the time in a million different ways but but like Stephen Covey and the seven habits of highly effective people says seek first to understand and then be understood and this is something that we need in society more than ever right like you are not my enemy because you believe differently than me and as a matter of fact if we really sought to understand other people we would probably realize. We're after the same being thing we just mechanically try to get there in a different way. Yeah and we Habitually instinctively love to help each other asked for our advice right people to talk about themselves when you bring the community together. I have a question for you though. Okay in sale side social also selling side no way you talk about building community together and having his relationships in taking these opportunities. It's something that I'm trying to focus it because I see opportunity opportunity everywhere but how to do you. Approach people and ask those very delicate questions so I think that one of the most important thing so I think that we need to do a better job of getting to know people before we begin to pry and and I and obviously that can be taken a negatively even just that word and I probably should have used a different word. But you know it's like Hey Sean tell tell me your story right. I want to know all the things you struggle with and again like you just happen to be very open person to begin list but we do have even though it's been online and fairly distant unlike some sense of relationship to know that you know that you trust me enough to know that I'm not an a-hole that's going to exploit you in some way right and so I think that I I write it is we have got to do a better job of getting to know people like I am. Yeah I am interested right like I'm not here I don't want you on my podcast to then try and reach a community of people that I can sell to. That's my goal like I want to get to know people bowl and I and I want to be interested. So that also means like don't bring my own presuppositions into this. Don't bring my own interests my own desires so I right. It's it's got to be that foundation and then I think right next to that or right after that is then be interested. Like if I'm going to Ask like so tell me what was it like to not to lose your vision like how did that affect you like. I really want ought to know right. I want to understand. I WanNa get to know you better because of that. I want to get to know other people that struggle with those same things and I also WanNa know well like Again like you know. I'm trying to choose my words here. Not because I'm trying to be politically correct because that's just not me but because I have concern and care so I don't want to call you disabled if you feel like that. Word is not characteristic of who you are and so help me to understand on how to better communicate around these things so I can help become an advocate for you and your community to Alabama. That's it's all about interest in in real real authenticity it's crazy. How in our digital world with sales and marketing we've become so disconnected even though we're uh-huh more connected than we'd ever been crazy like trying to put a facade and only show our ways to set do you will and then like you know so this to me is like super duper important so I went through a devastating personal tragedy and I ended up getting connected to attacks organizer. Who I said hey like I would love to Kinda share this and my experience and and he said to me Very kindly he said Lucky said I hate to say it but inspiration by tragedy is dead on the speaking circuit and I was like. That's fair right like that that that has been used so many times and yet what I have found since even that time is that it's not necessarily about my store like the event that took place. It's the story and the journey that I have been on ever since that has helped to shape who I am as an individual and that's what people are attracted to so I think for you right. It's not like again. Forgive me for saying like so crassly but like you don't get hired to publicly speak because you are the amass girl right right But but I think like here's something to like. I think that there are people out there that would believe that to be the case well. She's getting opportunities because of this and what I want people to hear here. And I'm I would love to hear your feedback to you are who you are in part because of how that shaped you right and continues to shape you but it's who you are now that people want right. It's not the experience necessarily but you went through. Yeah absolutely Eh. This is like the so what I do for a living right as help people build personal brands and it's so so brutal to do because it taste so much reflection and so many ingredients to make this recipe is delicious. You don't want to taste like crap so you WanNa make sure you're very selective selected bob about what you pull in details and when I build I s tricky to be a social selling expert deliver deliver social media and thought leadership online while sprinkling in diversity advocacy or advocacy about this thing but it can be done it's an op so really is about the full picture who the person is what makes them different than he makes because because we're all messed up like that all laws and in crap that we've had to muddle through and it's a beautiful beautiful beautiful thing when you take some things so so hard in major that they out of it. Well yeah and again like you know we are definitely attracted to the success story right the people that are killing it out there like that. There is some attraction there but I would argue that we relate much. It's better to the struggle to the hardship and so we don't need to make stuff up we don't need to like glorify the fact that You know we had these deep deep dark moments of our lives or seasons of our lives but like for me personally when I speak to people about the fact that at one point four and a half years into my marriage herridge was considering cheating on my wife and you know having a little baby at home and then they find out that but wait a minute. You're a pastor of a church now like how do those things things even connect and I'm like Oh let me tell you and then as they see like I am not like I tell everybody all the time like I I'm fulfilled I'm doing okay In business and financially but I am not crushing it and yet there are people that would say like man disguise killing it and he's doing everything right. I'm getting into no like let's get real and so I think that we need to continue to bring back in like who we really are and what we're really struggling with. And how and how we're overcoming those things that's what people relate to absolutely. It's I mean it adds flavor to. It's easier to trust somebody when you see. They're not perfect. It's easier to trust. Somebody may have Nathan flaws and joke about ad has humor. It's just human okay so The craziest experience you ever had when somebody found out that you have a differently abled craziest on being really funny. You're crazy that anyone's ever said to you. Oh my gosh well. Just yesterday I was at an event for National National Speakers Association and I was talking about my math and this woman looks at the end. She was just very seriously awkward. And I know it was an error error which she said. We don't look like it you off like as an insult like you should look more damaged if at the disabled and I just came with any also have the people that you talked you share a lot of content on link. Dan and I'll talk about Out My issues with multiple said Brain fog trip bang on you accessibility to all the time and people won't lay eight or common dot on it because they don't want their voices ear their communities to see most heart felt messages from the most random in places that are just beautiful that they like appreciate it you know and say Oh you know my my daughter has had an us just rudolf crate. Great Okay so you had a one percent chance to get pregnant to have this kid so tell me what it's like today being Imam God I while I never thought it would never have kids right so I kind of wrote it off. And then Lo lo and behold mavs only sheds why are going to be parents and it was stressful as hell. I like her now. Have a plan you know. I didn't want it but I do. Now Oh my Gosh Dun fine auto is the most incredible thing that's ever happened in this universe. That's on record too so on record it was it was best up. I mean you're hearing about how they're doing and have a disability and get so sick lake the worst and then my husband my poor husband where to take your newborn and me. ooh Yeah. That's gotta be telling his character for sure. I mean it takes. It's sad to say but it does take a very special person then to be able to to step through something like that when it's not you know directly affecting that right. Yeah I married right. Guy Chose the right talk to you and so so how how. How do you deal with continuing to balance being a mommy? And then you get on the road and and you're going to speak or you're going to work with clients and other places and so how. How does that typically typically work out like do you how is that for you? Yeah I mean it's brutal. It's definitely not a balancing act. It's more like living in harmony and riot with my illness. I get burnt out really easily. I make sure to focus meant business structure around that niche that putting house. I which I'm sure you are somebody who doesn't have Cancer or debilitating disease It's easy to forget about your house else until it's too late so it's important that you focus in on that because anything can happen but travelling. I'm so oh. Blessed to have an amazing support community really do believe that your nudity is based on who you are so if you give give give gifts you community is gonNA give give gifts. Yes I wish people would actually speak to that right there So I Recent gassed on my podcast. A woman by the name of Rachel Druckenmiller She has a pretty significant story of burning out. She ended up not getting Mono and then that turned into cash was Epstein Barr but now I am like I mean she was literally distributed it at the ground and it was because she was overworking herself more even than her employer overworking her and so we talked a lot about the fact that You know we focus on rest and recovery. People don't understand the strain on your body from traveling from Speaking from going head to head or face to face with clients and really digging into their life like it's draining and draining. Yeah and then as an entrepreneur. It's like well you can keep doing it. Just keep working harder. You've got more hours in the day. Keep going the I know you need to fricken. Go to sleep right like you need to add. Rake absolutely and it's really that we remind ourselves to put our health. I person the sleep is really critical. I need nine or ten hours of sleep. Sounds insane most entrepreneurs for me it literally washes your brain when you sleep and when you have prayed to these important no I mean it is it is it is and having that support community to notice. I notice those signs and say something to you when they noticed like like my husband the other day he was like Kay your sound. You're talking funny or are are you just not listening to me shoot. I need to sleep. Call it an I'm GONNA bed. So so how. How do you monitor that like are there? Are you just using like the people around you like. Are there other things that you're doing to keep track of your health. Oh Yeah I mean I needed to say no a lot more now and I've had to transform my business so that when and I have enough requires travel. I might need to charge three times the amount now because I need three times the time to recover to it to rest but my health I But then that goes with a lot of like establishing establishing size and stuff like that. So it's kind of ongoing process but Diet is ridiculously important and so easy to fall off of Aikido at Bent Hito for two years use. Because you don't have substantial benefits or controlling seizures four in the brain health of it. And if I go off of it Zayed's back mid impressionist back. My fatigue is back bar none so in A. It's hilarious. That new people to really experiment with feeding their body. The things are cutting the crap they don't realize how good they can possibly feel 'cause it's magical acquit happens when he really do. Put that as a priority in what you put into your body. What did the editor fork matters about all of this pain? It's crazy tiny little thing. Just keep piling into the wolves crazy. I know it's it's it's and then again like when you travel right it's even harder to pay attention to that stuff. Socially it's harder sometimes to pay to pay attention to that. Let's go grab something to eat. Nobody's picking the Clean Aline restaurant right. It's like let's go e. like the biggest bunch of garbage and let's go drink off. Yeah Yeah I'll get a water cooled. Okay so you're Kito. Do those Kito bricks. Thinks I don't even know what you're talking man like you've got you've got you gotta look them up so I kind of mine. A Matt Gag. Non is his name he's Yeah so matt. Matt's recently Gone Kito and mosquito. He's one of my favorite people of all time but yeah awesome. Shoutout a life story. Coaching had him on the podcast. Awhile ago and you know he's just a great guy but So he has recently Gone Kito for for similar health reasons. He's had a lot of really really big brain struggle Brain brain issues and and so he went Kito and so I actually haven't seen what's happened since but he started ordering these Kito bricks they literally look like a A red brick. Thank you lay in your house right. And they deliver them to use these bricks and it's all the nutrients that you need in it and it's all Kito and so he does snacks on them. Yep I love right now that if you're looking at this video you're watching chantal google. This and she's looking at disgusted looks disgusting. It's like gray like who eats gray food. No have you seen. It's like a movie called Snow Piercer. No okay never mind. We wanted to go down that back. Yeah that's disgusting God. There's just so much gross brek Kito Brek no eat real food like salmon stay home in and Greens Matt. You're smart and a lot of ways not your ex okay. So as house. We are turning the corner to to close in so Practically if people are trying to build a brand for themselves what what are the couple of things you tell them. You absolutely must avoid doing these. Are Those only behind thousand dollar curtain. Ah Likes you did their you know their avoid doing. Avoid stretching yourself youth fan and avoid being someone you're not avoid highlighting me your successes when if you're doing content strategy with your personal brand Avoid broadening your focus. We want a niche down and people think. Oh I'll get more money if I broaden my horizons the riot. No that's a recipe for disaster. You don't WanNa do that so I got an also. Don't hire or somebody to help you. That has blueprints we re body is different and requires a different strategy in different hand. Will everybody's at different phases uses in their life Okay so yeah res on that did you hear that if you are out there right now listening. I don't care how many have you it is or how I will sound by that clip. Just so you hear artist you buy a blueprint strategy to build your personal brand. Not only have you just thrown whatever amount of money you spent a way but you can't get that time in your life back either and your brand will end up being like whoever else jumped into that same crap and guess what none of you are GonNa win boom through through I mean how would he sales funnels you get you get sorted into that. Oh Yeah we have a five step program you're GONNA make ten digits in a month and it's like I hate it. I mean I know trying you know or you're on linked in and you know everybody can tell you how to make a million bucks. Even though they haven't even made the first thousand Sarah show bad okay One one one big positive. What what do you really want people to take away from listening to you? Speak all about yourself and the ways in which you can encourage other people. No I really mean that right so he let me let me let me clarify that statement. Because I can hear this again there so you personally were created with a very specific purpose in life. I mean I. I am such deep believer in this and so everything that has happened to you and through you up to this point and your life is for very specific purpose much of that is for your own growth in strength but at the same time you you telling your story to other people will enable other people to become the very best version of who they have been created to be so I think you should like people should continue to talk about themselves as long as you were doing it with the intent to contribute to the lives of other people. So what do you want people to hear about you. Oh Man I just I believe in that so much in the ripple effect and after building my success. These pass and I'm newer to entrepreneurship. I'm newer the Business World Ben and marketing for fifteen years so at least experience there. It's really been able to see the ripple effect fat and seeing my efforts that put in two years ago in passing that torch forward in seen my community thrive and succeed need and is just amazing. One nugget would be never known. One conversation is going if eight year. You never know what heart you're gonNA touch in how you're GonNa GonNa touch it and what you're going to do that. Person especially in mental health epidemic. Just really just need to be better. People for ourselves alternate The whole world but ourselves. Yeah because the net positive effect to that is is if we can continue to grow in our own ability to understand dand ourselves and to become the best version of ourselves we will ultimately affect everybody else around us right to. I mean energy is contagious. I love it. I cannot tell you how much fun I've had in such a short time especially when we're talking. I think that you know somebody could listen into this and here A lot of levity and enjoyment and entertainment and forget the fact that we're talking about some of the most significantly Weighty challenges that society faces today I appreciate you for the fact that that's what you bring to it right.

79 Daytona 500
"Epa? They told the International Speedway tone five hundred a moment ago. They dropped the green and yellow to put them out in that condition. Eight laps have now been completed on the speedway. But the cars as they continue to try and get the track dry as quickly as they can. And now Jackie we look up. Intern four we see that Darrell Waltrip has pulled out of the pack and his coming out of turn for beginning to punch the throttle a bit and test this track. Well, it will be very interesting to see what Daryl's comments are they use a mass the rabbit. He's radio controlled with buddy. Parrott gives him an opportunity to bring that Gatorade. Oldsmobile this time in the name of the cars. He names all of his cars after ladies is maybe lean bring it up to full song. And the West End of the speedway in front of my joy, just to see how the track surface is operating. He looks to be jacket about three-quarters throttle. He's no here near top speed testing out the surface. There still is a bit amiss coming up from the back of the car. We can see at the exit of turn number two looks pretty good. But up the backing are still a few dark patches Donovan straightaway. Here's Darryl bring a number eighty eight by working up to speed. Again, let's see how it goes into three. If he takes it up high holds it right on the middle of the racetrack. Now is he's means on route and moves into four turn number four the Bank. Daria certain looks to be pretty dry. We were worrying about the exit to the turn out as well. Chip come whizzing by us. Now, we seem to see a bit of a rooster tail as he goes by in front of us. But nothing much to write home about the troubles seems to be up in corners here. The wall jet he were the son has shined. But at the shade from the wall and the biking is made it a little bit damp in the corners. But he's in it pretty good as he heads back into turn one here. Walter moves up into the banking again. Let's go to Joe alloy in the Pitsea standing by with buddy Parrott buddy standing here talking to the NASCAR official now, and he should be giving us some word in just a moment. Because a NASCAR official has just given some were to the tower will check with our runner and find out the exact report, and we saw the rooster tails here and be back with you in just a moment. The speed that time by with that rabbit run was one hundred sixty six miles per hour. Plus, so it he did not build it up to what you would consider full speed with the car, but he did get a chance to take a look at the recent service Jackie he says the problem is in turn to it is still a little bit lose. That's Walker perform. That's the word from Darrell. Walter Poos just punched around the track one hundred sixty six miles an hour. They will not turn these cars loose at the speeds, they run until the track is perfectly safe. We have said so many times Darrell Waltrip last year with big Bertha his favorite race car the Monte-Carlo, and then they built a new car, and they called it wicked Wanda, and he had so many problems.

It's Donnie Allison showing the way as buddy Baker continues to lose ground to the leaders. He is way back in traffic. We'll get a position on the field on a moment. The battle upfront still just as hot there. Back in one Waltrip going into turn number one hundred eight Parsons and appropriate in fourth spot. Donnie, and Bobby Allison kale Jabre hooked up lightly. The rest of the burst wealth karst thrown out behind them. Jeev adver limps mine hours Louis almost had problems here in the trial Valeria is going around. JD mcduffie was buddy Baker. Both cars got literally sideways coming out of the tribal. They've gathered it back in. But it looks Barney hall like there is definitely a problem on the buddy Baker machine, we might get Joe alloy to check on that as Baker is continuing to fall back. Here comes the charge for the lead. Eight cars in the draft. Alison still on front. Bobby Allison a second audience. Kayla's third fourth right now is Walter v as many Parsons, we pause now for station identification. Field eases out of turn number two. When I say ease the down the backstretch at about one hundred ninety five miles an hour with Donnie Allison showing the way as they move up into turn three six cars. Locked together initial draft and there's five four with Richard petty running eleven it's still Donnie Allison atop staved Marcus have been known to do we try to think of a lower line. But no luck there. Meanwhile, behind that first draft David Pearson trying to close it has gotten veal bonded, right on his tail as the field comes across the strive for the moment, they seem to run that way. Bobby Allison's got a sling shot down to the inside. He goes back after the lead intern number one in Bobby Allison takes the lead in the Daytona five hundred. Second caution to the afternoon has been displayed for the report. Let's go to Mike joy trouble with the leaders of intern. Number two Donnie Allison leading the race. Bobby Allison tried to tuck back up in the draft. The two cars appeared to touch Bobby hung on Madani's Hawaiian tropic car. Got completely sideways down the racetrack. Bobby Allison unable to avoid them. Also started spitting kale Jabre caught up in. It also spun his car the three machine spun out of control into the infield grass which is very soaking wet for the downpour late yesterday afternoon and last night all three cars of now come to rest on the backstretch and got stuck in the mud trying to get back on the racetrack. No damage appears to be too severe all the drivers are all right. And they are all trying to restart donny's car. Donnie Allison has moved right to the track apron, but as unable to get up on the asphalt the slick Goodyear racing tires not getting any hold in the infield. He's got an assist from the NASCAR. Cruise on the backstretch. Donny is now running kale Yarborough at Bobby Allison's car are being pushed at the moment. Trying to get them under way. So they get back to the pit area. There is smoke coming from underneath the hood of the junior Johnson prepared Bush Oldsmobile driven by kill Yarborough. Bobby Allison looked like he might get away. But he too is stuck in the mud and the records are going to his aid. So that will make four the leading contenders for the Daytona five hundred that have encountered problems in the early going with thirty two laps completed. Let's update you on the condition of the buddy Baker automobile that's had problems. Here's Joe alloy. We understand from the buddy Baker crew that he has waddled a cylinder has lost that cylinder. So that would be a serious problem and take him out of contention. We'll Barney it looks as if the bubble is burst on Charlotte. North Carolina driver buddy baker's efforts to win his first Daytona five hundred from Daytona International Speedway. This is the Marin broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. We were under cautioned for the second time this afternoon. The race starting under caution thirty three. Apps hundred lap event this afternoon. Let's go to the garage for a report for Mary arm and trout car number eighty nine that of Tim van devere is out of the race Jimmie standing right here. What happened to you just blew the engine, you know, new problems and all of a sudden this blue run a real good. We started in a room. We had already come to twentieth place, and I'll get some it's gotta be laced. But I'll shooting like to be. That's the way it is for Jim tower. The Bobby Alison car just motoring through turn number four showing right rear damage. Well here comes Alison onto pit road. That is the reason for the second caution flag, Bobby and Donnie getting together going out of turnover to Donny was in the pits. A moment ago the left door appears to be crunched in on that car is back on speedway. And here is Allison in the pits. And both Allison brothers. Now are on pit road. Where we've got some new candidates for the goodies headache award, which will be given out by the press members and attendance to this Daytona five hundred already for the top leading contenders for the laurels in nineteen Seventy-nine have encountered serious problems with their mounts. Well, a tough break for four of the best in the business in buddy Baker has to be just crush. Sched considering that all week long in new that if the car held together he had a good shot at winning his first Daytona five hundred and almost before three or four laps under green the the car encountered mechanical problems. He is still on the racetrack. But far back in the field. Let's go to Mike joy for an update on that accident all of the cars are away from the scene. There was some trouble getting kale Yarborough moving as there was smoke from underneath the hood. But all the cars are gone from the scene at Enfield area. All along the backstretch is very very wet. It's almost taken on a swampy character. And even the GMC safety trucks are having trouble. So anybody that gets off into that infield grass today body is going to have a very tough time getting going again did stops continue to be the order of the day. And here on pit road. Again is the Cordoba Twenty-eight the specter. Oldsmobile pole-sitter buddy Baker plenty baker's hood is up. They have been checking the car he came in for a very brief pitstop. Just a few minutes ago. They didn't do anything at that time. Now, they have the tools out. They are working on the right hand side of the motor making some adjustments. Who it appears that it is a serious problem mentioning? The mud the pit moon. Puddles of water that did help with both Donnie and body Allison's car because they came in sort of in the mud off the cars. They changed the tires and the cars both went back out. Both have identical damage to the drivers doors another car that just pulled out of pit road kale. Yarborough Bush Oldsmobile as the junior Johnson crew goes to work on that machine. And here comes Bobby Allison back into the pits in the Hodgson car and the bud. Moore crew will check him over to try and get him back onto the track. There does not appear to be too much damage on Bobby Allison's car. Let's go back to Joe alloy for a report on that. They are still working on buddy bikers car. The hood is still up. The car has not had any tires changed. Listening, but they do have the hood up. We just noticed something on buddy baker's car. He has when she'll is completely covered in mud. So evidently, he has gotten into some of the draft to some of the mud that is coming off the track. The car is found sounding very sour. And apparently, it is a lost cylinder in that car. Here's Bobby Allison pulling back out of the speedway and I'll year ago when he won this race in the qualifying races. He and buddy Baker crash together over internal three the cars were repaired. They come back to make the field for the Daytona five hundred Alison went on to win it it came down to a two car shootout between those two with Laker losing an engine with just four laps to go while leading kale. Yarborough car was in the pits. The junior Johnson crew change the tires on that machine. They have sent him back onto the speedway and for the most part just looking from the tower. Jackie there appears to be no damage to kale's car, will it was a costly stopped for kailua will put him to the back of the pack, but they took that precautionary measure of adding right side tires Barney. That's always a good move. And we always see junior. Johnson crew opting for that early in a race. Because he could have run through some of the debris left from that spin in front of Mike joy. So why not elect to do it? In fact, it looks if they're going to come in and change the left side rubber as well. As the Bush beer Oldsmobile is on pit road once again and Donnie Allison also comes back into the pits. There's the Hoss Ellington crew go back to work on the Hawaiian tropic machine. They are showing Neil Bonnett as the leader under this caution. The second caution flag day AJ point now moves into the number two spot. Richard petty is third wall trip is fourth and Dave Marcus is currently shown as the fifth place car as we are under the second caution flag day here, the Daytona five hundred we talk about Dave, Marcus. He's one of the few drivers that has brought a non Oldsmobile GMC type product to the Daytona five hundred he's opted for the brand new now legal Chevrolet caprice. And I asked him yesterday. I said Marcus why the boxy looking caprice here at Daytona. Everybody and his brother's got an Oldsmobile. And I think they're going to do something about him. Jackie. They did with the super birds in daytona's Attallah is going as I believe in angels something about them and start a new team. I need a universal race car. And you don't have a car for one track. One race. I can't afford that at this time. So I brought a car at we'll run here. Run atlanta. Ron Darlington in everywhere. So I figured that's the way to go to shoney's. Australian the shoney's racing team having gone from the Oscar and racing team and being replaced by Dale Earnhardt, nineteen Seventy-nine taking the schone sponsorship with him was Dave Marcus of wausau Wisconsin fielding his own effort now as well as a car at selected events for Woody Fisher, the Ohio entry that will run selected events in nineteen seventy nine in the Winston Cup trail, the Pontiac safety car leads them down across the start finish live with a field until it. It is bonded in the lead. AJ Ford is the second place car. Richard petty has put the Oldsmobile amid. Third position. Walter comes back up to fourth and Marcus is the fifth place car as we are under the second caution flag day already the pit crew tells us that they change the spark plugs on buddy, baker's car that has failed. They will be bringing him back in again very shortly. And here comes body. Allison back in the peers, he has more problems. Here comes Donnie Allison back. Well, this is the break for both these cars as a matter of fact, it will be a great break for all three of the cars, although they were the ones to cause the caution flag. It does give them a chance to check the machines over as they went onto the muddy Enfield area. Just coming off the banking in the in the turn number two. So junior Johnson has had plenty of time to check kale's car over again. Both Allison brothers are on pit road. Donnie, and Bobby, and they continue to do work on those cars in the hood goes up on the Hawaiian tropic car this time from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company.

Thirty-seven laps completed the two hundred lap Daytona five hundred year this afternoon still overcast skies, but we are under caution for the second time of the day. And Jackie I know the fans around the country wondering exactly how his car stand that spun in the back straightaway. We have an update on that. The spin was very costly for Donnie Allison in fact, has put him one lap down to your leader. Neil Bonnett such is the case with kale Jabre in Bobby Allison, but they have two laps in arrears now to the leader. So let's recap for you. The Wyan tropic Oldsmobile is being shown one lap down while kale Jabre and Bobby Allison are now being posted on the grid. As two laps down to Neil Bonnett who leads this Daytona five hundred thirty seven laps are completed in the Daytona five hundred two hundred laps make up the five hundred miles on this two point five mile facility as the field goes out of turnover to down the back shoot. Let's go to Mike joy, the cleanup crews and find out what the condition of track is in that area. The sweepers were on the track party, but they are done right now, the GMC safety trucks. Look like they may put a little stay dry down. On there, and they are calling the blower out. They've got a big aghast fired blower that they will use to finish cleaning the track the debris is confined strictly to the low group of the racetrack. This was not a bad accident. Although it did happen at probably one hundred eighty five hundred ninety miles an hour. All three cars were traveling just about the same speed. When impact was made. And then they separated and went their own separate ways through the grassy area off the backstretch. So it's a lot less damaging than certainly could have been if there'd been a greater speed differential between the three cars. Let's the condition of turnover too at this time. Again, we mentioned a moment ago. It is Neil Bonnett. The leader is now up into the second spot in Richard Petty's SDPI's will be showing third. We talked earlier in our broadcast that petty would make his presence felt here today if he has no problems on the car Jackie you talked to him about that. He's presently running in the third position. I said Richard you feel that you are top contender for this twenty-first annual Daytona five hundred. Down here. We wanted to race when we had to fight his cO on we've been down here. One racing who felt like we had to all move to at score in. So, you know, the racist not going to be over to not run the five hundred miles, and you know, even if we don't run that fast. We'll get everything get the brakes from stuff ball ride than we can win the race. Now, remember Barney is we have posted. Donnie, Allison one lap down kale Jabre and Bobby Allison two laps down. It's so early in this race that if we have some extended periods of caution those drivers very easily can make those laps up by not coming in under caution and going all the way around and should that happen. We'll explain it to our listeners, but there are some methods to quickly make up ground, especially if you go a lap down early in an event, it has been a lengthy cautioned are lethal stop for the buddy Baker car. The hood has been up on the car for at least three laps. Now, they get the car down off the Jackson takes it back onto the speedway down and turn one Iran. He gave us had looked at looked at only, but it can give us the look of disgust. Like, what am I going to do? Now, the crew has done all they can they got the duct tape out. They made all the changes they can. But he just threw his hands up put his goggles on went back on the track. He will fall in on the tail end of the field with Neil Bonnett riding in the league at this time where you're still under caution. Here Daytona thirty eight laps are on the board in the two hundred lap event. Boy is the second place car in fort. Ironically, had not moved to the front of the pack. He had been running back about tenth twelfth somewhere in that range when that caution flag came out. Now, he is up in the second position for those of the for those of us who have been around AJ Foyt for a number of years here at Daytona. And then also on the championship car circuit. He has been looser with the press in the media than ever before here in Daytona Beach, Florida and the car has not run all that. Well, he finished fairly easily in the twenty five mile qualifier in second position. But he has not been that bundle of nerves that we've seen so many times here at Daytona ended. Talladega. And all of a sudden he's being shown in second position. Well, something that surprised me. We're checking. Back through the record book on AJ voice performance here. Daytona he spend Daytona and made the field twenty six times over the years.

Speaking new about a good year if you win here, and 'cause it's the Super Bowl of what we do. And if you win here, then whatever you do the rest of the year is just additional prize for you. But. It's everything we would build new cars to race here. We don't build new cars to raise many other places and. I guess in money that you make in this one event now counting the prize money. Just two consignments in different things that you get as it's the big deal for us. And we'll come down here to get it. It won't be his day.

Pulling the inside of the superspeedway Neil Bonnett has come from a twentieth starting position he's come a long way. But he's got four petty Waltrip right behind him as we get set for the green.

Bobby Ellison trying to gain back one of his two lap deficit runs in second on the racetrack. But he is well down in two laps behind the leader. And the present time your leader is out front. It's car number five and that would be Neil Bonnett in front of Mike joy surprise for second spot young Thai Scott dirt track as turned Grand National driver has the cello through another great rookie, Dale Earnhardt boost to the inside in the backstretch all the trying to get one of those laps back looked like he may be doing it right now because he's moved to the head of the back Earnhardt behind him bidding for the lead along with monitor Earnhardt, admonished chasing, Bobby Allison, who has doubt left there side by side.

He cuts in front of Pearson. He goes harder to the wall along come three or four cars spinning through the dirt Kerry balloon with got two more cars in the wall directly in front of us. Six seven eight possibly nine cars involved back to the tower, a vicious crash internal before has sideline more than five cards that have come to rest on the apron of the track. Two cars are jammed into the wall and a cloud of smoke up in turn four caution is on the speedway. We have gotten a David Pearson automobile coming to the rest in the grassy area on the infield. His party automobile, totally pushed back into the driver compartment area. The number eighty seven of Gary blue, he cut across hit the wall rather fish asleep in the highest point of turn number four cut down across the racetrack took Galon with him. The automobile of eight J Foyt further down the stretch, we had cars careening into the Wall Street trying to avoid the onrushing perils and cars at this point strewn all over the race track. We see the. David Pearson, novel veal again with the fun of its car pretty well shoved into the rear and the AJ white car along with the number eighty seven automobile right now of Gary Palu, those the ones I've seen any most dangerously injured here as far as the cars are concerned also involved. Barney hall was car number seventeen and that would be skipped banning, but he is brought his ailing machine from Bogalusa Louisiana onto pit road. We are under caution at the Daytona International Speedway after care raising crash in over four more than half the field came through a smoke feel racetrack trying to pick their way through cars that had stopped on the apron of the track and against the wall from the Daytona International Speedway. This is the Marin broadcasting company. The Daytona International Speedway. Fifty five laps around to the Daytona five hundred. We have had at least a six possibly seven car pile up at been turned over four as the safety. Crews have moved to the area we have one car that is jammed against the wall. We're trying to get a car number and driver on that for you momentarily. We'll have it. Some of the cars again that were involved David Pearson. Crunches the wall badly and Carter Twenty-one the purolator car AJ point torn up in the front of that machine has come to rest down on the grass Barney hall. Both of those drivers are out of their machines and standing by for the assistance and the cruise the first hell automobile is center number forest grass areas. Well, and he is walking around seemingly. Okay, likewise. The automobile of Gary Palu, it's come to rest on the inside retaining wall, all the way careening through the grassy area. He is. Okay. As the crews. They're attending as well. Let's update you quickly on the Ford car again. We just said that the car appeared to be crunched it looked like he went right into thick of things. And now we see AJ has pulled his car onto pit road. There does not appear to be in a damage on the right side. Maybe a little. Sheet metal damage on the left side. They picked that car and pull him back onto the track. Quickly wall trips car is in the pits. The Gatorade machine and again a moment ago there were more than thirty cars riding in that lead draft. Something went wrong right back in the middle of the pack and cars go careening into each other again in front of Eli goal. Let's go back there for an update at what's happening in turn four while Barney, certainly what's happening right now as a massive cleanup job, let's recap. What's happened here shortwhile ago the cars were motoring through on that long draft through turn number four at seemed as though Gary blue just did not follow the contour of the track for whatever reason? Let's not speculate. An event the car rather viciously hitting the outside retaining wall came careening back through in front of traffic along came the Bruce hill automobile, he was there. So as the David Pearson car, those three most notably involved as they went careening down the straightaway towards the Tri oval area right now Balu coming to rest near the inside retaining wall. Bruce hill he's in the grassy area walking. Okay. And the mercury of the. Brothers. David Pearson's car that beautifully prepared automobile. Well, they've got a lot of preparing to do after this one David Pearson who crashed in that area. It is bid for victory here a year or so ago when he defeated Richard petty. They went slamming into that concrete wall at better than one hundred eighty miles an hour, and again today piercing gets caught up in the spinning cars coming out of turnover. Four and crunches the jury Leonard car once again for the most part the cars now are coming into the pits. Lennie pond spun in that also congre fifty four a moment ago, the pond card does not appear to be damaged as he pulls. It onto pit road. We saw the skip manning car also number seventeen spinning in there. He has been on the pit road. We believe that car has gone back into the competition. Gary blues car involved all she Jay points spinning but boy car does not appear to be damaged at all on right now. Joe Milliken car the one final car that we had yet to identify. It's on the hook and being towed in towards the garage area. The number seventy two car also on the hook the number seventy five of Butch mock Bush coming. Long way to join the race. And he right now as outta be brings out a flower to north Miami area, he's on the hook. And so is the Joe Milliken car SOS, everybody went careening down off turn number four. Again, the primary problem was the Gary Balu automobile after smacking the wall. There was no control really for Gary. He came back down the high Bank, cutting in front of the Bruce hill car also in front of David Pearson. Further down the stretch is they tried to avoid the problems. Joe Milliken coming together with Butch mock to come into the garage area, the number seventeen carves skip manning and also buddy Baker has just entered the garage area will have report for you on that shortly. Let's recap for you. The eight cars that were involved in this crash out of turn four car number seventeen. That would be the car from the Bogalusa Louisiana stable force skip manning car number fifty the Walter Ballard prepared machine, and that was being driven by Bruce L of union city, Georgia Butch mock in car number eighty seven in number seventy five.

Barney the third caution of the afternoon, and it was a very serious one. Almost looked like a repeat on the opposite end of the speedway from what happened yesterday. But when they're running that tightly as they were over thirty cars in the draft and something goes wrong in the middle of the pack of the front of the Packers. No way to avoid getting into somebody else's trouble. Misery becomes yours in the garage area. Right now, buddy Baker driver, of course, car number twenty eight years out of the race, buddy.

Working the seventy six lap in this Daytona five hundred one hundred ninety miles have been completed for those of you that have just joined us at the drop of the green flag. The green did not come out here in the Daytona five hundred until the sixteenth Sirkin. The race was run under green yellow conditions due to a wet condition on the race track. Until the sixteenth lap here on the drop of the green though, it was Donnie Allison leading. I it would be buddy Baker. Then by the second lap. It was the Bush beer sponsored car for junior.

I'm Jack a route along with Barney hall topside at the start finish line in this two and a half mile facility, and when they tally up the dollars and cents. That's been lost to Rex crashes here in this twenty first Daytona five hundred it could total well up into a million dollars very very easily. I don't think we've seen this many cars run in a lead pack like that. And just a minor accident can become a major problem when the competition is that keen in their twenty and thirty cars riding in one draft and something goes wrong. We have had a thing that's been handed to us from scoring that will make a big difference in this race. If he stays out there. Donnie, Allison, who's really been writing as hard as it can to keep his lap and get it back in been writing in front of the pack. We have a report from scoring now that he is back in the same lab with the leaders. Remember, we have said time and time again that it is very easy. If you leave your car out on the race track and do not go to the pit road air. You can circle all the way around and pick up the lead at the end of the lead lap. And that's just precisely with Donnie Allison is done and a rookie. Driver from the north Geoff Bodine leads this Daytona five hundred on the seventy eight lap. And this has got to be a great thrill for this youngster from Bellingham, Massachusetts, dine picking up the race hill farms ride in nineteen seventy nine and he is indicated that he would go for rookie of the year in the seventy nine Winston Cup Grand National circuit. But a late development yesterday with the departure from the race hill team of Billy Taylor who was Bodine's chief mechanic has left. A lot of question marks as to whether Bohdan will hold onto the race hill farms rod or maybe jump over. And I asked Jeff yesterday. I said do you have enough with the car to go the distance or do you try and run the run to the front and be noticed in hopes that maybe you can get a little better ride for your Seventy-nine quest for championship. Knows the TV cameras and everybody watches broad cars. But I feel that I'm smart enough. I guess the realize that. You can't win a race solid time. Just by being a front. You gotta finish the race. I so if the cars people will run up in a front that's will be. But if it's not just sort of joy fats, they'll go and try to finish the race. And at the end, you know, we'll put our best foot forward. Try to go as fast as we can to get up front for not already. We'll his best foot forward is put him into first position with seventy eight laps completed while we're under this caution. Barney we've got a lot of great Winston Cup racing. Coming up for the nineteen seventy nine season. The from Daytona Beach, Florida, we moved to the Richmond four hundred Richmond Virginia than in Rockingham North Carolina after the twenty fifth of February where they'll be running in Richmond Virginia the Richmond four hundred.

So the drivers are all right. We are under the fourth caution flag today here at the Daytona International Speedway. Working the seventy nine th lap of the event we can bring you update as to how they're running show. Jeff Bohdan your leader. Benny Parsons running in second tie, Scott on the Russ togs Harry Hyde prepared Oldsmobile running in third AJ Foyt and the Gilmore broadcasting number. Fifty one runs fourth RA.

Finally, having his way this afternoon, the Burger King car number. Fifty four is being shown in seven grant Adcocks in the Ed. Cox Kirby Chevrolet runs eighth and ninth. Despite the crash in turn number four is Neil bunny in the gym Stacy mobile in the garage right now, Harry Ganta driver of car number twelve was involved in that spin out in turn number four. Harry what happened with Koren's in front of Bobby Allison rich pity? I was drafting wrought together with them in a car storage spin in front of them and he was backing up gross the racetrack. Look like, you know, going going to hit him, and they stopped real quick. And then whenever they stopped. I was only about a foot behind knock dip tobacco Bauby's car and started my car spin and two in the didn't try to control controller try to go the grass but graduates this liquor bucket bone racetrack. And the I two hundred miles of this race we've seen quite a bit of violent action. Have you ever seen anything like this before? No, it's. Israel roofer, but his seem like a fin or buying out there. You know, everybody's trying to catch a draught off everybody else. They so many cars here sequel in his new cars that are faster and everybody wants to catch draft. They'll get out of the box stretch draft, the strike arline, then all of a sudden breakout three abreast at the last minute in nobody. Everybody's trying to pull away, but nobody can get away from anybody. But I've seen a couple of cars putting it in the wall out here. Thank is spy, maybe or something, but they had little udub leave going there. But I've never seen it. This rough running. We had a a good shot wind race. We had a clutch problem early. And it wouldn't release me loss to lab. But or car was plenty of fights to win the race in we just trying to draft in the main liners or style troll. But I just this thing happened to quicken up return per head to. Had to shut it off. Suffice her by locked it down. I had to hit him in the back. What is your condition right now? You'll be able to go out and rice. Oh, yeah. But the car the car store up, you know, it ilet to have a lot of work done need. It took cope pretty good licks out there. The I guess we're lucky though, everything worked at our Harry Gant. A couple of pretty good licks is putting it mildly that inside retaining wall had to be running one hundred seventy miles an hour. The violent impact shot the car all the way across the speedway into the outside concrete wall. Harry, Gant walks away. He's all right Barney down in the garage area. Now, there's some action there. But here in the pit area we see that bringing in a windshield for Darrell Waltrip scar. Apparently during the crash something flew up went through the windshield of the car. It is crack so badly tape is not going to hold it. So they are making plans to put in another windshield that in addition to his engine which has gone sour the field is in the banking. Intern four we're getting ready to go back to green of a Daytona five hundred on the eighty first lap as they come down out of the corner of the Pontiac safety car dives on the pit road to give them racing room in a hurry. Because. Are they come full throttle out of the fourth turn by gate seven heading down the line? Green flag as we go. Back to racing. At daytona. Geoff Bodine is the leader coming up his Benny parties by overhaul in the head back in turn of a one the young rookie driver from Bellingham, Massachusetts sits in the point photon. The winningest driver the nation last year fifty five feature victories, try to make his first one a nineteen Seventy-nine ride here, but Parsons is closing it at turnover to the gap shortened from five now to to car lakes with dick Brooks at third spot arson. Arsons just gonna try coming out of turn two in the backstretch side side-by-side side on the back straightaway. Now Benny Parsons, indeed makes his try and it makes it pay off. He grabs the lead. But dick Brooks Brooks's right there. Also. But I racing her Bobby Ellison fighting to try to get one of those laps back. Bobby Robson moving in on the tail of Jeff podium. Meanwhile, the jet the bear fighter car, dick, Brooke. She cuts in second place behind Marcin.

Jeff Hodi sits third. Bobby Allison is fourth in the draft. But he has lapsed out as his kailua rural at Dave Marcus right behind them that would make the fifth rather fourth-place car tie Scott than AJ pointed v Richard petty six bright sunshine for the first time in quite some time on the back straightaway, two hours, they come roaring toward turn three. Once again, it's dick Brooks deprived of porterville. But in a wheel in front of any person dick try to make the movie went down low enough floats up in front of putty partial holding down the third spun from the Majd squad. Jeff Podins out of Massachusetts at a fair number four the advantage of their find their car, but a move now by Parsons, one lap down is dick Brooks. Oh, Benny Parsons will appropriate. The lead is he comes across the stripe. The griffis marine supply number twenty seven Geoff Bodine will be running in second ties got his third fourth AJ point Richard petty run spin bond and right now in the garage area driving car number five involved in that spinning in turn number four Neal's. All right, but your car Neil. Pretty well out of a dog think sideways going forward, I think it jumped across the road and infield at toilet chassis up on the bottom of the car. We tried to fix it in only back out in cars, vibrate, real bad. There's no way to run it. And one more driver out of the race bull died goes after the lead up and turn over three this young rookie driver. Jackie. We may see the first rookie ever to win. A Winston Cup event. The way they're running in the top five. A rookie has one Winston Cup events. Earl Ross did it in martinsville. Virginia several years back, but no one has ever been able to do it. Here. The GRANDE Dame of stock car racing facilities, Daytona Beach, Florida. And at the present time a whole host of rookies are challenging some of the aging veterans. Benny Parsons is out front. Ac- does the shoot scooted deterred y Parsis lease vote on by one Carling? Brooks a lap down closes up on his third in the draft with two lap cars behind him then to tie Scott in third spot point is fourth out of turn too far opens up a four car like the Bennett Lenny body, just went limping beieve at here comes the speed. Now is the freight train hooks up down the back straightaway. Jeff. Slingshot move. He takes the lead away from Parsa now. Jeff podium stays glue down low and floats backup kale Yarbrough trying to join back and get some of the laps back but kale saves down low as Geoff Bodine stance on choice. Good horsepower. Benny Parsons, right on the tail was go out to the all head to the line. Fourteen cars chase Bodine's out of the start finish line Greeks across parson's just inches away. In many uses the draft for a moment. It looked like he was gonna put a move on him as a head to turn one down on the inside. He thinks second thoughts on it and decide to just ride the draft of the moment there in front of Mike joy, and the sputter here could be kailua. Trying to regain lap kale. Moved up past third place. Car sized vote on lease Parsons and Parsons will try him again in the backstretch a modified star from the north has his hands full of the moment. Here's Benny Parsons. In the familiar blue and white twenty-seven back into the lead at Brooks. Right. They're trying to get back a lab mode. I hang on to second. But Bodine now being checked up towards outside group is buddy Parsons, thanks midway through the turn. Dick Brooks laps down running second. On the speedway right now. Then mcphail yarn for automobile running in the third running over the right now then finally to vote on it is Benny Parsons out front. Geoff Bodine is running in second Scotus. Third. AJ Moya's fourth running fifth is Richard petty. Dale Earnhardt is six Lennie pond is seven grant. Ed Cox eighth. Dave Clayton is running in the ninth position in tenth position decay. All rich in eleventh is Blackie Weigman j d mcduffie. His twelfth thirteenth Kuku Marlin Bill Dennis's running fourteenth. Donnie Allison is fifteen. Richard Childress runs sixteen seventeenth goes to Terry Labonte eighteenth position. And that's when you go one lap down. That's the shoney's racing team. For Dave Marcus in nineteenth position is Chuck bound. Twentieth. Belongs to car number eighty two and that would be Paul fest in twenty first position is Bobby. Allison two laps down, buddy. Arrington is twenty second and twenty third is the oh five of dick Brooks. Now Brooks's being shown three laps down. At the Daytona International Speedway. Eighty eight laps are completed the two hundred lap Daytona five hundred let's go to the garage area. Ninety Seventy-seven rookie of the year. Ricky Rudd is out of the race. He was not involved in a crash something happened to his car rookie where the car was running. Pretty good. We've just just more or less sitting back in lead pack and car was running to great. I knew you know, we we're going to have to have trouble. I guess, but we're just sitting back waiting kitty and had a lot of guys out there driving their own dirt or something. Either thinking racist go be into shortly. I guess you know, the way they were driving. But I guess we're helping we do look forward to next week and weekend to that. They would know dead. There are ten cars out of the race kale. Yarborough tries to make up some ground on Benny Parsons to unlatch himself here today told International Speedway. It's Parsons the leader. Geoff Bodine's still in second position from the Daytona International Speedway. Listening are in broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. Benny Parsons now pulls ahead of the pack a little bit in the most breathing room. Anybody has had today Parsons has it as he's linked up in a two car train with kale Jabre Bush Oldsmobile say come back to the stripe. They have pulled away perhaps ten car links on the second place car. Jeff Koons Richard petty a moment ago was up in the third position. And now it looks like petty is falling back a bit. As Earnhardt gets around him in the head back to turn one Jackie route Barney hall, you've got to be impressed by this run by this youngster. Jeff who died some twenty seven years old hailing out of Bellingham, Massachusetts and carrying the Winston racing colors. In the honors track championship at the Stafford springs Motor Speedway for nineteen seventy eight he came Grand National racing. And I'll bet you right now. All of New England is thinking back to nineteen seven. When the Dedham Massachusetts flash Pete Hamilton driving for the Richard petty stable was right where at this point in the race, Geoff Bodine is he went on to win the nineteen seventy Daytona five hundred. So all New England is probably shaking in their boots right now cheering on Jeff who runs in second come out of turn number four, Dale Earnhardt, putting some pressure on the heads of the strikes across the start finish live Parsons and Yarborough continue to ride a two car draft in they pull away just a little bit more each time around and Mike joy, it looks like a broken the draft on that second pack of traffic. They have already about a second and a half back to the second group. Dale Earnhardt, just went low in turn one and pass Jeff owed on earn artist. Now third with four Donnie Allison v Richard petty and A J Foyt kale rural getting bulled along, but many Parsons as they come down the street headed door three Earnhardt moved into second place day bail Earnhardt down the backstretch tries to put some moves on those put some daylight between himself and Jeff foe dime chasing down right now. They learnt heart but again. A gap between himself in sucking on the lead on mobile buddy, personam five with kale Jabre. It looks like they're twenty nine cars still on the speedway starting forty-one. Despite all the giving we've had in turn four involving those cars at several of them out of competition. One car that has retired as the Burger King Oldsmobile for Lenny pod, it has gone behind the wall. The leader Parsons continues to stretch his lead. He is in front of my joy, and they continue to pull away battle for the third spot, though is Donnie Allison run Dale Earnhardt Allison is now out on the draft. And he drops back some two colleagues from the third spot. First time today, we've seen anybody open up anything close to about a seventy five yard at that age with what Benny Parsons enjoys as they move into three or four. Of course, that's second group right now. Today's off a flashback to the early going on the brothers Donnie Allison leading by a half a car length on the palm Donaldson as say try to make up ground. This is the longest lead we've seen in the first ninety four laps of competition at the Daytona five hundred and it is Benny Parsons out front in the grip. Marine supply Oldsmobile I asked Benny yesterday how much trust is there in the sport of stock car racing. I be a great deal and talk about been a gentleman about and what have you there has to be a lot of courtesy displayed on the racetrack. Or you know, one driver could wipe out the entire field. Coach Joe seduce. Oh, but we've seen a lot of activity. We have had already four separate caution flags for some very serious accidents, thus far nobody has been hurt badly. In fact, everybody is all right from those altercations and now Varney hall, it looks as if kale Jabre and Benny Parsons are beginning to shake the rest of the field as they come screaming out of turn number four to the stripe will that's what everybody had thought that buddy Baker and possibly Walter might do link up on the dropped the green flag and take off and set sail from the field. It did not materialize. At least it has right now, though, those two cars continue to why their way around the speedway with the battle is back for second position five six seven eight cars ride the draft for that number two spot as they move to Mike joy Donnie, Allison has the second spot for the moment. He has. One car cushion, Bobby Allison a lap down before A J Foyt in fort Dale Earnhardt, Richard petty, Scott hooked up in that second draft the big crush now is way back behind the two front runners actually Parsons, the lead with pale hooked along with Donna has come a long way car number one to get back into second. Embiid. Donnie, Allison doing the job they worked as right back after being lapped in arrears. He takes that second pack through turns three and four. Bobby Allison using higher reliant on Donnie Allison AJ, Poitou, Dale Earnhardt. They're fighting their time. That's all I can do as the lead. Car comes across the strike. Donnie, Allison sweeps by his three point seven seconds. Now in second position three point seven seconds separate first and second spot and they can't afford to race right now back in that second position because if you pull door to door, you'll slow down even more and allow Benny Parsons in kale Yarborough to get away even further in the garage area. Right now, we find that Lennie pond's car number fifty four had no brakes that means. The attrition rate is ever growing here with eleven cars out of the race. The top. Tenders that are out of the race. To update you on that David Pearson has parked his car crashed in turn four, buddy. Baker had mechanical problems has gone behind the wall. Ricky Rudd is out of the race. Neil bonnett. One of the top contenders. Lennie pond has also gone behind the wall. Here comes Benny, Parsons and kale Yarborough. They stretch the lead even more this time by the tools mobiles nose to tail pulling away from Donnie Allison the second place car and Barney the latest report weekend get from NASCAR scoring his kale Jabre is at least three laps in arrears. So although he runs second on the racetrack. He has three laps down to your leader. Benny Parsons and Jaggi one more car ailing into the garage area. Number twenty five the car of rookie. Ronnie Thomas is being held in right now. And he is walking over beside it. We are ninety seven laps into the Daytona five hundred one hundred and three Laos from the completion of the event this afternoon, and we are showing Benny Parsons lengthening his lead over second-place. Donnie, Allison third goes to AJ Foyt Dale Earnhardt runs in fourth fifth spot to Richard petty in six position is car number forty seven and. That would be the kneel would be the check that. It'd be the Geoff Bodine entry tie Scott runs. An aid mission ninth grade. Ed, Cox Kuku Marlin tenth, Dave Watson is running any eleven good run for the Wisconsin driver in twelfth Richard Childress in the CRC mobile. Darrell Waltrip being posted in thirteenth position Terry Labonte, fourteenth fifteenth decay, rich Bill Dennis's, sixteen JD mcduffie seventeen Blackie Weigman is eighteenth. And nineteenth is Frank worn. In the dodge magnum at the Daytona five hundred. We're coming up on the completion of one hundred laps halfway home in the Daytona five hundred. Here comes the lead car across the stripe. Benny Parsons jumping please one hundred laps in the Daytona five hundred at the Reid. John nine is apparently over Barney. He's pulled out on the apron through three and four his coasting back toward the pit area. After leading this event at the halfway point is looks like he is through. We'll despite the back of mechanical problems, look like they will put put Bodine behind the wall. Jackie Rudy's, had one of the most impressive runs. We've ever seen a young driver. Come today told a and ROY. With caliber of competition that is here today pulls onto pit road. The Cottam forty seven died. It's another rookie who just left the race. Ronnie Thomas, the drive of car number twenty five running have you ever seen anything like this with so many cars coming out of the race oil? No, you know, spades are up a little too fast. You knows proud while having so many Rix, and you know, mechanical problems, you know, these cars are are really getting fast. And it's a it's real horrid on the cars. And you know, spades are getting up sufficed. I I don't know. It's just you know, just we'll sideways you just can't do much with it. What happened to your car?

And I haven't got on a track till rice started today in a hit in handled at all since wrecked. And on top of that, you know, he's trying to get by with the tat just run. His hardest could ruin it be safe. And then the engine giving trouble men, go burn a pistol and Ronnie time this is one more out of the race driver. That is out of the racist. Standing by with Joe alloy Lennie pond made his Mark on the wall and qualifying this week right at the start finish line. But no finish line today. Well, Joe, you know, we we've got doing real good way. Right going thinking, I had a chance duck and win this thing. But then we have some problem with front end and found Drake's one on the call. And the way to call running you have to run so close to you in all the traffic. I just think be safe for. Theo. Breaking doll with this much rights to go. So we go. Problem that you had occurred. Intern four new ended up finally right at the start finish line. What is the feeling? Well, you know, when when the did get crossed up and hit the wall there is that's the way I need to stay done. And everytime. I would let up on a gas would come off the wall. You know? I'd get it back to the wall. But you know, I figured to get away from it turned about off. I'd beast. I just try to keep it going. But try to stay on the wall. But it didn't keep him out today. He was here racing until he had dropped on one hundred three laps are completed that they told a five hundred Parsons is the leader. Donnie, Allison vied second and third position right now is the rookie driver.

Flag was a break for kale Yarbrough in that two car breakaway draft. He was running just ahead of Benny Parsons. So when the pace car picked up Parsons to leader Yarborough got a free pass around and picked up one of the laps. He was down being shown three laps in arrears. So that will gain him one lap back burning home will you never count. Caylao. We've seen him as much as three and four laps down in the last couple of years in his bid for the national driving title. And he is come back to win races from three and four laps behind pit activities. The order of the day here at the Daytona International Speedway. One hundred seven laps around the board.

My vote goes to Geoff Bodine because he showed some promise and he's got to have a pretty big, hey, headache. Now having known that the car was capable of running to the front, and it just didn't have the lasting power to be there at the end. I don't think anybody has ever seen as many rookies ride in the top six or seven cars as this has been a completely unique Daytona five hundred of any of the races that have been here since its inception.

Scott the driver from pin Arjil, Pennsylvania, not a natural born race, Mark. That it took him about two years to get his feet in the carpet. But now that he has he is hanging onto the best in the business down in turn one. Barney all your watch the run by Donnie Allison you've got to wonder if he's ever been scared inside a race car. Well, Jackie I, you know, I have to say that I've been scared reservation, you know. I have a lot of respect to the place. And I think respected certain amount of fear in, you know, I'm not one I joke. A lot about saying that scared to hell out of me, you know, or something like that. Well, I have confidence in myself. And I I don't scare myself. Well, that confidence is really surfaced here this afternoon Barney as he is put that car out. And you can't forget that last year. He felt a little bit cheated in his run for the Daytona five hundred when an early problem departure law selling prepared machine, but thus far this afternoon with one hundred fifty laps completed in this Daytona five hundred three hundred seventy five miles down one hundred four ago, he's out front over that rookie, Dale Earnhardt. And that's a great run for that kid to Lee draft works their way in front of my joy. And for the moment, they seem to be content to run those detailing. Could it be my joy the guys who running back second third fourth and fifth figure why go to believe because we're you're going the draft. You can't run away from anybody. And they just seem to ride that way. That's right Barney. Once you get out of the draft here at Daytona. Once you get down on the low side, you can be easily be freight train all the way to the back of the drafted right now that Lee draft is ten cars, so say the second place driver could go for the lead in up tip. It just a battery seconds. And of course, you look ahead about forty laps or so Monty hall. You've got the figure where does that come? Talked about the slingshot intern number four. Well, we haven't these and all that much of it a lot of people talking. Now, you've got to make the move on the backstretch the repaving of the track of change. The quality's just you might see that move for the French coming up on turn number three instead of turn for slingshot kale. Jabre how early in a race? Do you begin to think about what you'll do on that last lap think about that all the time? Especially when you running with somebody that you know, you might have to beat at the end. So I concentrate on that all day long on sometimes it works. And sometimes you got circumstances on the last lap did makes it impossible to work. But you still think about it and try to plan ahead keeping you abreast as well. In the national pit crew comp competition championship going there from the Sears craftsman people tie, Scott, and Harry height of teamed up in that crew is now posting the fastest time overall on pit road at two hundred ninety seven point seven, oh, two seconds. So they lead that one over Richard petty with average with an aggregate speed of three hundred and twenty seconds point six eight three two point six eight for second fastest on pit road nap alongside Richard petty. But tie Scott leads in that chase for several thousand dollars been posted by the Sears craftsman. Hateful that draft continues to wind around that. I told a speedway as we mentioned a moment ago. They seem content for the moment. Just to ride those positions the leader again. Is Donnie Allison Dale Earnhardt Sahan AJ boy is third tie. Scott is fourth Richard petty is in fifth position kale. Yarborough ride six. The seventh-place car is narrow walterman here. They come across by running exactly that order and Earnhardt sneaks peak down on the end side. This time looked like he wanted to move up and take the lead as they work their way back into turn one her and art Hata look what he's back in the groove. Donnie, Allison came down at turnover. One down to the second route from the bottom, usually when the running single file like this. They run one grew away from the wall a second through as they are. Now single file nine cars in the league draft nearing that four hundred mile Mark no change in the position smoothly allied now. Petty drops about three car lengths back behind kale. Yarborough? Oh, running fifth-place. Richard six Waltrip is seven interesting to watch Richard petty. This time it goes through turns them or three and four directly in that straight line through with everybody else last couple times around Richard petty has gone way outside of the wall. As it's been known to do that outside grove is pretty much been Richard petty. Early years, Richard petty, y it Daytona to you run so close to the outside retaining barrier. A day when I come down here we had a Plymouth, and it was probably the slowest gone racetrack. And only way I could ruin was was draft in with somebody. And I learned right quick at the lower. I run the more horsepower took in other words when you run low, the the car sticks better and it bogs down. So takes horsepower to get it up out of the corner. And I also learned that minko the drafts on outside of a car not on the inside of a car. And you know, like, I say at that particular time I was having use every trick at anybody could rank of and and dry anything in. And I just got in the habit of running next to the wall. And you know, even when later on when I got a car that was quicker quicker than anybody else's. It was just a natural place to run and I ruined earn. I run they're comfortable, and you know, as long as I can do it. Then I think it's the safest place on the racetrack that that's the voice of Richard petty. And he does take a unique line almost around any speedway. He goes to you can always pick him out in the corners running right against the retaining. Let's take a look at the rundown as we have at Donnie Allison leading Dale Earnhardt, insect AJ. Void is third tie. Scott. His fourth running in fifth at the present time has kale Jabre. Six position belongs to Richard petty. Darrell Walter is in seven eighth to Terry. Labonte COO Marlin is night. One lap down in tenth is Chuck bound in the kings in Oldsmobile running eleven as decay origin the midwestern farms entry in twelfth position as Frank Warren in thirteenth is Bill. Dennis in fourteenth is Bobby Allison Errington his fifteenth sixteenth. Ralph Jones and seventeen two laps down to the leader is Benny Parsons and the Daytona International Speedway. We are two laps away from the final one hundred miles of the Daytona five hundred is Blackie way, injuring of Bloomington. Minnesota takes his car behind the wall from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company. Eight cars continued just eat around the Daytona International Speedway as they scoot back off into the number one corner. It is still Donnie Allison leading Earnhardt hanging out of a second. Bottom AJ Ford is there in third position now sandwiched in that group is Bobby Allison. He is some laps down. Will update you on that in a minute. But he is in a good position to make up a lap. If indeed we have another caution flag before the end of this race latest report is Bobby Allison the depending champion for the Daytona five hundred is two laps down. But he's in a great position to make up one of those farney. He is posted in the fourteenth position. At the present. Time kale Yarbrough has squeezed the Bush Oldsmobile up into fourth position. And what to come back for kale Yarborough that would have to be the story of the Daytona five hundred four racetrack body, Dale Earnhardt heading to the pets. Here's Earnhardt, pitting his car, and this might be a routine pitstop stop. There might be some trouble on the car. Let's go to Joel alloy. Earnhardt is running coming in on the throttle. Any had some difficulty stopping the mechanics are going over to the right hand side of the car. They are changing the tires. Now. This is an unscheduled pitstop. We are not under caution pleading the windshield. And putting them the gasoline will watch for a moment and see if they go to the other side of the car. But as we said he came in very hot great fast. Rome interferes that he's going to change only the right side rubber while they had a problem with Jack Jack got hung underneath the car. And he had a problem. Getting started going back out on the track. Now could have had a cut tire on the machine. It's Earnhardt fives to beat the field back to the start finish line here. They come out of four he does not want to go a lap down. And he gets back onto the speedway is the field closes on him across the stripe. The leader is now Alison up in a second position AJ point third kale. Yarbrough fourth is ties Scott and fifth is Richard petty that Lee draft head back into turnover. One. The racetrack at point comes right down. Elaine and holds him off. They've been willing like that for the last four left. Dale earnhardt's pitstop may have been on schedule. But he should now. Be able to go the distance to the checkered flag Yarbrough is going to try it again at the backstretch. They're moving quickly on Earnhardt, not yet back up to speed the practice gonna catch him Earnhardt just lost the left. Donnie, Allison, he's down low on the track. Donnie, Allison, AJ Ford entail. Although by dark, then comes the kale Yarbrough automobile Fudd by the one of tie, Scott, Richard petty, Darrell fail Earnhardt, dumping, Trump kicked all the way back behind the wall. Chip car, and he tucks fun of chunk found Earnhardt picks up the lead draft in his like backup there with the front voters Dadi Alison winds his way back into turnover. One as the Benny Parsons card Ripa th marine Oldsmobile pulls back on the pit road. And the hood goes up again for the third time on that machine. Barney these lengthy periods of caution as we've had how many now seven different distinct caution periods have necessitated or actually made it possible for us to go the entire race. Without a green flag pit stop for your front. Runners. So if we go down to the final hundred miles without benefit of a caution. We'll see the first time the high speed ballet in these cruises. Six guys come over the wall to service these thirty-seven hundred pound stock cars something else we need to start looking for on the racetrack. The kind of paisley of set here all day. We have not seen that much experimenting with different cars who can pass who. Where's the best place on the racetrack yet around? I think we'll start seeing some of that as they set up for shootout. And the Daytona five Donnie Allison on the last lap. What will be your strategy? Depend on who it is Jackie in cars run. A compared to their north Idaho about have the opportunity to try a little harder in into race. What I might do. And know everything goes, we'll definitely find out before the what I gotta do to to get her back around here for. So, you know, I don't know whether it'd be better to pass on the backstretch or to do it in front bread away for you get to the flag, you know, Natone a little harder to do it or project. News does start line in the middle of the race. Where Donald egging, you know, you do have the whole front straightaway in. I don't know yet. I know one thing it if you comes down to a last lap duel with me and just Bob you're Daryl or any of those guys you can bet I won't be trying everything I can to win. Well, that Hodson Thunderbird of his brother right now continues to ride the draft of that Hawaiian tropicals mobile. So out front is an Oldsmobile is Bobby Allison is latched onto Brown. We mentioned a minute ago. He is a couple of laps down. But if we get a caution, there's no doubt that he'll try and swing around immediately and make up another one of those laps. The field is in front of Mike joy a battle for second. Spot kailua Ruas finally found a way around AJ fourth through turns one and two Yarborough now rides second only one car separating donning Alison at kale Yarborough that AVI is down lapsed of the leaders kale making the world right now he tucks himself in behind. Bobby Allison, followed by A J Foyt ties Scott automobile going by some slower rates traffic. Donaldson pace outside retaining wealth ahead for the home. Thirty four laps remaining in the Daytona five hundred two hundred laps. Make up this afternoon as Donnie Allison leads him across the stripe and kale Yarborough. Is there the Bush Oldsmobile just pushes the Allison brothers back into turn? One Yarborough must have the strongest car the race track. Right now Foyt had held him off for ten laps when you are go high point would be there. Same thing. Bottom of the race track. With Yarborough is now second breathing down the backup Allison's Thunderbird. No change in the order nine cars in the draft Chuck mound. Former Winston west champion from the west coast. He'll celebrate his twentieth. Birthday on Thursday, the ninth tar in that draft. His kale trying to close at all. No, he just keeps himself about a car length or so behind Bobby Allison is content on the lower groove trying to make his Thais concrete cuts underneath aside, Richard petty. But he ducked back inside two of the toughest drivers in the business lead. This Daytona five hundred Donnie Allison out front kale. Jabre finds himself running third on the race track. But second overall in sandwiched in between and who could play possibly the key. Spoiler role is the national engineering car for Bobby Allison. Other of your leader Donny as they go to Mike joy still in challenge. Position AJ point in third spot, Richard petty for Darrell Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt at tie Scott on the tail the drafts. No change in the procession. Single file nobody making a move on the back straightaway. This time the listen brothers leading kailua rural with point two car. Lex back forth on the track. Third in the race. That's almost an eerie feeling going to experimental Barney hall before Dale Earnhardt back in the traces. He goes side by side with Donald wall of framing the number five position. There are eighty miles to go in this twenty first annual Daytona five hundred Barney home. Wilbur shortly. You're going to see kale Jabre put a move. I'm sure on Donnie Allison to see. Indeed. If he can scoot around him Earnhardt has been up there of all the drivers probably this afternoon who have found out what they can do with their car. Earnhardt would be in the best probably position. He is come from eighth and ninth position on several occasions. Come up through the field drafted around everyone and went into the lead a couple of times. So he should be in the best shape. As far as that goes. Donnie Allison has been out there. Alison made up a couple of laps that he lost. When he spun early in the race today. So he still leads the pack is a hit up in turn three kale. Yarborough the comeback of the day the comeback of the year for that matter at Daytona. When you get more maps down here with a kind of competition that year, they tone a and make the comeback has you have done a day's work hours hall in the pit area now day, Marcus who would have liked have come back today. Not even able to get out on the track right now because David appears at something did break in the automobile. Well, the car was running pretty decent than the caution that come out and was heading into three. And I feel the vibration. I tried to knock it oughta gear, but something broke internally in the motor and it locked up car started to spend Dave the way the cars are stacked up. Now, would you like to predict a winner because they're staying closer together than they ever have? While it looks to me stand down here in radio booth like Donnie in Bobby running along real well and kale is back in there again. So it probably come out or one of those three cars. Marcus in the pit area. Well, it's going to come out of one of those seven or eight cars, they're still all there in that eight car draft across describe Donnie Allison just continues to put laps on the board and the Hawaiian tropic Oldsmobile second-place car Yarbrough Bush Owl's is there AJ foot in the Gilmore valvoline car. Boy has not been heard from that much today. But he has driven a steady race and run of the top ten in the last almost all day for that matter. But in the last one hundred miles he is just an assistant running fourth and fifth and doesn't want to raise anybody at this point just ride in the draft and the draft it looks as if Barney hall will be the determining factor is to who will come into victory lane in the end of this Daytona five hundred as we look at some six cars that are actually now it's down to five cars that are capable of riding that Bobby Allison, of course, one lap down as he trails. His brother Donnie to the stripe, but it will be one of those tremendous Daytona finishes. I'm sure as we get down to one hundred seventy one laps completed just. Seventy two and a half miles left in the average speed is one hundred ten point three zero miles per hour. The lead draft works the banking and the West End of the speedway. There is a second raft. Going on back about a second of the half behind. Donnie, Allison and the rest of the crew in front of Mike joy that second drew. That second drew fell back of it. With Dale Earnhardt went underneath tie, Scott Dera. Walter followed him up through that will move Earnhardt up a bit. He is the only driver in that draft. That's made his final pitstop Richard petty trying to get up you're catching donelson dropped way down. Lou Alison, drops low and kale. Yarborough loose lie goal to take the lead. Johnny Ottesen goes down. Five kale? Yarbrough? Go buy sodas AJ point lake wise, Richard petty at the head to the pets. The Allison brothers have elected to pit Jackie route. And this could be a very good calculated move on the Allison brothers. Bobby Allison as we said, very possibly playing the spoiler role. Both cars electing to come in on a pit road for what should be their final. Pitstop the crews go to work cost. Ellington in the team. I'm a Hawaiian tropicals mobile come over the wall. And they go to work right side rubber on both cars, the national engineering team for the but more people the Ford Thunderbird is being service in these two cars you can plan on it are going to hit you up on a draft. When they go back out to race. Will they have been running a good combination all afternoon, they run together. Enough laps to know that they can lead the field. Nobody's been able to get around them. So they elect to pit together. The Allison brothers of Huey town Alabama and the head back onto the speedway down in the West End of the track. Now, our runners and petty is dropping off the track in front of goal. Richard credit cut right down for turn before he heads to put road petty will be this third to been Betty's crew waiting to service, the S T mobile don't count Richard petty out. He's won the Daytona fi- five hundred five times. He would like to make it six here this afternoon. He has won a total of seven major victories here at Daytona. And it's been so long. He's tried to beat out one hundred and eighty five career victories is the winningest driver and competition actually, the winningest driver ever in NASCAR Winston Cup competition, but he's gone so long since July fourth in nineteen seventy seven without tasting victory. They've completed the service on the mobile, Dale Inman and MAURICE petty put brother and cousin Richard petty back out onto the race about a fourteen second pitstop and a quick one Richard petty as they get him back on the speedway in a hurry. So there is one more pitstop for most of the front runners now Earnhardt pitted on lap one sixty one which would give him almost ninety six ninety seven miles to go. And whether he's going to gamble and stay out there. Try to make one less pitstop than everybody else. We're going to have to wait and see. Our Joe alley are pit commentator. I'm sure is going down to check with role in a lotta on the Buick car number two from the Austrian stable to see if they will gamble because it is a calculated risk, but you can go just about one hundred miles here at Daytona on a tank of union. Seventy six racing fuel still believe Dow's caled Yarborough Floyd is the second place car Waltrip scoots up to third position Thais Scott fourth Richard petty had been showing in fifth but petty has pitted. Since that time Bill Dennis brings car number nineteen onto pit road as the front runners stay on the track. We're watching kale Yarbrough, scar CNBC on a drop off the banking this time, and he does here comes caled Yarborough knee will pit the Bush Oldsmobile. Let's go to Joe alloy. Apparently Joe is checking on the situation with Dale earnhardt's car to see if they will try and go the distance as they go to work on kale Yarbrough machine, your fourth-place machine tie, Scott who is leading in the national pit crew competition as overshot his pits. This will be costly in that cash award bonuses. Well, as costly form as he runs fourth overall, the services completed on the Bush, beer prepared. Oldsmobile kale Yarbrough is away. Yarbrough goes through the gears and comes down to the West End of the pit road area. The pitstop on kale thirteen in eight tenths seconds quick. Stop for the Arbroath crew, but they are one of the best in the business. But of late the last year in Winston Cup Grand National competition. Pitstops if you're over fifteen seconds. You're not even in the ball game in our AJ Floyd off turnover. Foreign goes into pit road area, yet another of the leaders and for services boy who had taken over lead as everybody else was pitting now pits, the cadre fifty-one, the valvoline Gilmore car and Foyt gives up the lead to Darrell Waltrip machine. The gatorade. So maybe lean inherits the lead buddy Parrott, however is preparing for their last pit stop on pit road and car number eighty eight that Daugaard data raid Oldsmobile is the last car of the lead teams that have yet to show on pit road. And that's expected because he always has been getting phenomenal gas mileage, we saw it happen in riverside, California. And it gave him a victory and today he's running out just as far as he can which will reduce the amount of time. They left to spend on road fourteen point eight seconds on AJ points pinched up as it goes back onto the speedway those positions. Here they told comes Walter. Up to the fence so Walter who inherits the lead now comes onto pit road to make his stop his checking with a pit crew there. Learn heart we understand that he will not he will not make another pitstop. They're going to chance it. It was a scheduled pitstop early. So they're going to make the rest of the race on that tank gasoline. Well, that could be a good gamble for Dale Earnhardt. It could be a bad one. But we'll have to wait and see the service continues on the Gatorade. Number eighty eight. The DAI guard crew is completed their task and Darrell Waltrip returns to the race in eight an eight tenth seconds, right? Number forest. Donnie, Allison, Bobby Allison and kale Yarbrough right down three in a row. They just linked back on the ramp. Jackie route and try to make up as much ground on the field as they can prompt Daytona International Speedway. This is the are in broadcasting company at the Daytona International Speedway. One hundred seventy eight laps have been posted on the scoreboard here as we get down to the conclusion of the Daytona five hundred now to cars jump out into the lead. Donnie, Allison's is in front caled Yarborough picks up the draft. And they try to pull away from the field, and they have broken the draft on Bobby Allison to try and make it a two car shootout instead of a five car shootout as they've been running here they come on crossing the line and they stick 'em together. And you're gonna see some type drafting spinal fifty or sixty miles of the Daytona five hundred they scoot back into turn one. No more than a foot apart the old Soviet Donnie Allison at kale, Yarbrough kale. Runs up a bit into that fourth. Hi, groove and drops about half a car like back still tuck timely the draft long way back to AJ voice, and Richard petty is leading up with point in a draft to catch them a remarkable comeback for the two front runners. They were both involved in that early. Tangle off. Turn number two. Donnie, Allison drafting with kale Yarborough just about three feet behind setting up return. Four course we're gonna take those identical middle groves now floating a bit higher touch the wall. They come out of turn number four with Donnie Allison holding about a half car clean possibly they stretch. Their lead over the rest of the field. The two os will be able to come down one hundred and eighty laps complete four hundred and fifty miles are down in the Daytona five hundred back in turn one. And they continue to stretch that lead. My joy Donnie Allison looks to be handling a little better going into the turn Barney. He can open that advantage from one foot up to about a car. Like y'all grow has to run a little bit higher groove. It'll be interesting to see if kale can pass Donnie on the inside if it comes down to a last lap shootout right at this particular point is they come down the back straightaway. Looking into turn three we'll be the spot where we anticipate any move may have to be made but comes to the last lap situation. And of course, further back AJ Foyt and Richard petty. They continue to try and hook up together. They're running together for good, but of real estate Sep. Rating themselves from the leaders less than fifty miles ago in the Daytona five hundred is the two front cars scream across the start finish line about four seconds back. Here comes Darrell Walker and Walter has nobody to draft on him. He continues to lose ground, and there could be a problem on wall trips car, right Joe alloy. Yes, probable, Darrell Waltrip car. We were trying to check on that when he came in. They put the first tank of gasoline up is they want to put the second tight up. Darrell pulled also evidently he did not get a full tank of gasoline at could be a big factor in the closing laps of this race. It could indeed be a big factor for Walter. He's in third position right now. But he is losing ground at the front. Twosome of Donnie, Allison kale Yarborough. Bobby? Allison right now is coasting. Turn number foreign pose it download apron area. Bobby Allison semi to lose powers. It goes through certain three and four. Here's Bobby Allison bringing the Hodson car, The Thunderbird of bud. More onto pit road and a break for him. If he has mechanical problems, it looks to be maybe a cut tire on the car the way it's handling as he brings it into the pits. Alison pits. The call number fifteen meanwhile on the speedway caled Yarborough. And Donnie Allison continue the just stretch the distance on the field. And it looks like one car slowing down on the backstretch to be caught a twenty-seven Benny Parsons he's hitting up into tournament. Three. Any Parsons goes by he's been limping for quite some time. Barney and tie Scott was just passed by the front runners as they approach Eli gold tried the front runners moving. My Scott really can't say enough about the youngster out of Puerto Pennsylvania. We've been talking about him all afternoon, quite a creditable sewing for him here today. But the difference is bid, Bobby and Donnie Allison elected to pick a moment ago together and try and get back out in the draft that didn't work kale Yarbrough now nudges in on that draft and bay linkup to run away from the field. They'll try settle among themselves in the final apps of the Daytona five hundred Parni, evidently, Bobby Allison did have a cut left front tyre. The car was handling very poorly as it came in. Bobby news, the pitstop on all four tires and full tank of gas that could be to his advantage. We'll have to see my joy, it looks like the third fourth and fifth place. Car have linked up in light of you. They have indeed AJ point leads Darrell Waltrip and Richard petty in a tight draft looks like he's going to look on the low side of the Gulf two three three Patty ducks back. Now, he slips up at the high side of the groove, but it's Foyt walterman petty third fourth and fifth. No change in position for those three as they moved to turn number four AJ with Darrell Waltrip, and Richard petty and putting predictively taking a bit of a higher line not noticeably. So AJ Foyt in front of this is the battle for the third position. Foyt leads Darrell Waltrip in the Gatorade car which runs fourth and Richard petty with a very good posting as at least they're down to arguing points finishing five hundred miles coming close to it runs in the fifth spot. But all of a sudden pennies backed out of the throttle. Just a wee bitten his lost the draft by about two Carling's. He builds up the mainspring on the car and gavitt back in as he goes in front of Mike joy, these caught them again out of to Jackie something happened a petty coming at turn one and he dropped back a bit. But he's right with them. Now any tuck it in on the inside of up now he has to duck back into the single file procession. No change under the high banks. It's still quite leading that three car battle for third again through the turns though, interesting I'll Foyt and Walsh up put a bit of daylight between themselves and Richard putty, but accelerating off the third Richard petty. Right back on the tail of Walter Nettie looks to the inside of Darrell Waltrip, they are hub to hub in the battle for the fourth position is the exit the trial Valeria petty now tries to appropriate third away from A J Foyt as they go into one Patty on the low side of the race track is passed Waltrip. He's into fourth position. He's still three colleagues backup. Boy, but points car's been pushing toward the top of the racetrack. If petty can ruin the bottom he could get by AJ almost a full straightaway fullback stretch now separating second and third. Here comes Richard petty now heading with the V Oldsmobile number forty three going door handle or head over day. J Foyt in turn number three by our side by side through the turn up the Bank, psycho and still no way you could tell them apart. Richard funny side foot on the high side. I'm certainly changer. The fact that and again conferral blanket across them as they head to the lines wrong battled for the third position Richard petty against the flex the muscles of yesterday will Bill and he couldn't have picked a tougher competitor to do it on AJ foot. They still ride. Door to door. And that group is fifteen point four seconds behind the front two. They're back in one AJ has the straightaway speed, but it is petty through the tourist at turned to petty underneath point, Richard petty rods. Third point is fourth Walter bes- fifth. They're still in tight draft at a tremendous battle for the lead have just gone by us it still kale Albro tucked in behind. Donnie Allison now on the race for third your point yet traffic treaty down the backstretch boy back into their place AJ Foyt appropriate spot number three going on the low side of Richard petty petty running behind him followed by Darrell Waltrip, they go by the storm and Saint of Benny Parsons out of turn number four still AJ Foyt in the battle for third behind that battle for third position run against six this Chuck bound, Dale Earnhardt is running seven eighth to Scott, Terry. La bounty, rookie is running in ninth tenth to gluco. Marlin Bobby Allison was running any Levin. Frank Warren will now move into eleven and Benny Parsons will be shown in the twelfth musician. I'm now, Terry Labonte. That's good looking rookie who came off turn number four and pulls a deadly pretty slows the headstone. Pit road. Thirteen laps to go in the Daytona five hundred is LA body pulls his car onto the pit road this afternoon. Here comes the front. Two cars were going to put the clock on him this time around and see what speed they're turning around the speedway, and we get down to the conclusion of NATO five hundred meanwhile, Richard petty as tested out AJ Foyt. He moved around a moment ago foot comes right back to take over the third spot as Walter picks up the draft and a moment ago, it sounded like you might have had a sick engine on the car. And we've had a report that he might not have got a full tank of fuel last time by but in riverside, California the last couple of races out there. He is proved that that car seems to get better mileage than anybody as we come down to the one hundred eighty nine flap. Donnie Allison may be thinking about nineteen seventy four when he was leading this Daytona five hundred in the die guard team entry when he blew a tire and had to miss his pit road area. And it cost him any hopes of victory Allison screams out of turn number four and comes to the stripe looking in his rear view mirror. All he can see is the tinted glass of the Bush bureaus mobile. Deal with kale Jabre gritting his teeth and waiting to gun him down as they go into turn number one. A kale has stayed. No more than one car like back. Donnie, Allison kale strike seems to be in the straightaway. Going into the turn Allison is able to open up one maybe even two Carlex but coming off turn number two kale comes back up, right? Onto the bumper the red and white Hawaiian tropic machine at every time they've come down the backstretch by the time. They've reached our vantage point feet in the air and turn three pale is tucked right up there. No more than a couple of feedback on. Of course, the old question is strange that might sound indeed on daytonas track in a two car battle and powerful automobiles. We are do you? Indeed wanna be in first place coming off to a possible slingshot situation. Forty six point four seconds last time around this dynamic duo is a swing back into the West End of the speedway that translates to just over one hundred ninety four miles an hour. He'll Yarbrough right now. And Donnie Allison getting around the speedway. It's still over one hundred nine. Four miles an hour. They moved back to Mike joy Terry Labonte low on the race track. And he will be co stick around a history as the two leaders work race, traffic, Allison and Yarborough still glued knows detail. The traffic seems to be no problem whatsoever. Donnie, brings them through Kayla's right there laughing a couple of slower cars moving toward turn four. And of course, race traffic. No factor right now as only buddy Arrington automobile, I'm and buddies right now crossing the start finish line while Allison Yarbrough working for number four will not only are the fans going to have to decide what they want to watch on this last lap. Their sure watching the battle between Donnie Allison and Jabre as they'll shoot it out for the Finnish. If they hang together because they have a commanding lead right now over fifteen seconds.

Exactly Jackie KO was looking around us party guiding back and forth. Maybe breathing the car a bit but still trying to experimented. Finding hall saying before seven laps remaining on this race track. When is he going to try and test out things Barney? I think that we would we'll have to look and speculate onto as whether you want to lead the last lap or be in second in the past races here for the last couple of years. It seems that the guy that is in front is the fellow that comes home victorious on that last lap. It's not like before and the Stanton radiator people have posted a cash award for it. They call it the pressure award. They will post cash awards to the driver who leads the white flag lap because they say in the past it wasn't necessarily the guy that wins the Daytona five hundred. Let's check with our turn reporters right now. Find out how they feel is finished Nobel, Mike joy, you've watched them draft on and off around the track all afternoon as far as kale and are concerned if it comes down to those two who will do it Kaliev number. He came from three laps behind an on each occasion. He went underneath Donnie Allison to race back to the flag and take back a lab if he could do it again he could win. This Daytona five hundred Gary Jerrell, who do you pick? I don't think there's any question in my mind, just as bike just pointed out took the got back on the leader's lap. He made his move right at our vantage point going into three. And it was Donnie Allison he had to get by any did it. It seemed almost effortlessly. Let's kale Yarborough right now to nothing let's go to ally. Gold and see how who he picks far as it turned out to concern. I'll have to make animus caviar bro right now. So close us. He and Donnie Allison come motoring right in front of my position here. I've got to expect that Kayla's gonna make the move knocking foot of Gary turn number three on forsakes links dry here in turn number four. We'll see the move made a bit earlier than our location here will have. Has become a team effort among these two to draft the use it in one hundred twenty five mile qualifying races. They made their pit stops came back out linked it up and they're five laps to go for the Daytona five hundred and the settlement A-List that. I am Barney hall. I'm good at pick. Donnie, Allison, I've seen a lot of racist. Here. The last couple of weeks in the last couple of years, and it always seems to be the guy that runs in second position that comes up on the short end of the stick lately, it's been the leader on the last lap. That comes home victorious will while all that discussion is going on about first and second. There is a whale about going off for third position, Richard petty.

Jan perations have been made in. There is a camera star standing by the start finish line. That will click off this finish it over a thousand frames a second as many people are at dissipating one of the closest Daytona five hundred finishes ever Barney hall. Traffic may play a problem.

It could happen again today in nineteen seventy eight is in the Daytona firecracker four hundred David Pearson Cy Baxter, price and carnival Forty-five going down the backstretch and he used Baxter. Ice as a wedge to deny kale Jabre victory in that independence day classic. You can be sure that Donnie Allison is just as Tuffah thinker. When it comes down to last lap strategy is the silver FOX Pearson was and the firecracker race one year ago. Donnie, Allison use that strategy a couple of years ago to block Darrell Waltrip separate to win a sportsman three hundred year, they told her so it is indeed going to be interesting.

Congratulating each other. This Daytona five hundred. And is headed all Donnie, Allison kale. Yarborough crash in turn three on that. Final lap. The nineteen Seventy-nine Daytona five hundred history. And ladies and gentlemen. The winner is Richard petty Richard petty and the S T P Oldsmobile is coming down. Remember, the reports here the wire services yet late last evening. They were saying that doctors recommended that Richard petty forego the Daytona five hundred and looked to Richmond Virginia to return to the racing action after that ulcer operation, but he has brought the car down onto pit road. And it is being just mobbed by the SDP racing team a great two weeks for the petty clan. Jackie over at turn three. We interrupt for a moment kale. Donnie, both out of the cars. Bobby Allison is brought his car down. There. A furious discussion taking place just down below the banks of turn number three. And now, we appears we may have a fistfight we see driver's helmets faith. The officials trying to jump in there and separate them as tempers have really flared after this amazing. Incident on the final lap coming into turn number three. They can they battle on the ground at this time, and we can't see as others come running into surrounded. Try to separate those drivers. Meanwhile, it's very jubilant crew that is heading to victory lane. We'll be talking to them shortly. But first from Daytona International Speedway. This is the MR in broadcasting company back here at Daytona International Speedway. Barney hall this nineteen Seventy-nine Daytona five hundred is definitely had something for everyone. Well, we thought the finish in the time that Richard petty and David Pearson went into the wall and Pearson. Limped across the line was just the ultimate in a Finnish today is a heart thumper had just stopped everybody. It's left everybody. Limped kind of like that same finish. Who would've thought when we played that repeat of the nineteen seventy six finish between petty and Pearson that we would see its surface. Once again, this time the name's Allison and Yarborough standing by in victory lane as the Marin broadcasting correspondent Joe alloy. Joe there's no way at all that we can possibly get to Richard petty is just mass confusion. The family is fighting to get to him. And of course, he's talking to all of them. He's getting congratulations. We do have with us his chief crewmen daily Linneman. They what was the situation. Did you ever feel that you know, this was going to happen? Well, we you know, all the lucky to win the race. I no question about that. But we've been awful Luggy for unlucky for a year. So we'll just have gotten it to as it comes. We missed a draft on that lies pet Saban really hard as just four we pay the car come in. And and it hurt us on our pitstop. And if they hadn't erect, of course, we don't you know, where to run third, but but you just take them educate them we've been unlucky. And and we was lugging today. So we won the right? So what can you say day? What was the situation? How did you find out that Donnie and kale had wrecked? Well, we have radios, you know, there's radios PS, the the broadcasters and stuff like that. And it so happened that we was in the middle two or three wrecks today. And. And when rich got two white flag. And and just as he went outside of me. They said they would a wreck, and I told him he had to run through it. You know? And I don't know where it was only rice Drakkar. What were you able to talk to Richard own to way? Only thing I told him do was go that's all Dale Inman had time to do. We'll have to cut away from here for just a few moments because it is much confusion, but we will be back with Daytona five hundred winner, Richard petty in just a moment will the good is headache award. Winner voted overwhelmingly to buddy Baker here this afternoon to the Daytona five hundred and I'm sure Baker deserved it. He had high hopes of pulling out his first they told a five hundred win. It didn't work that way. We pause now for station identification back here at Daytona International Speedway. Let's recap for you that final lap which brought Richard petty into victory lane. Let's go to Mike joy. I almost sense. This kind of finished for the five hundred coming out of turn to on the final AP kailua Yara was perfectly aligned behind. Donnie, Allison to do what he had done three times before to lap himself run down the backstretch move to the inside draft. By Alison and take the victory at midway down. The backstretch. Donnie, Allison saw Yarborough move to the inside. Donnie, also came down to the inside Yarborough ran out of asphalt kicking dirt the to flail each other toward turn number three as they came down through that we wondered if they were even going to be able to make it back out to the racetrack. Once they got off in the grass because it had been so wet in earlier this afternoon, we had seen those two drivers along with Bobby Allison up and turn to taking that wild Harry Reid for several hundred feet. But this time they got back to the asphalt. They were out of control as they move toward our vantage point, they slid sideways up into the asphalt. Neither driver backing off an inch kale underneath and Donny on the outside. And they just drove it straight up into the wall in turn three. There was a huge ball of fire is they made that grinding contact. They skated back down off to the low side of the racetrack in it was just a matter of seconds, then before heading Waltrip in fort came flashing through cautiously. But still no one that this was the race. And as it turns out. Who was Richard? Who got the checker we have Richard petty Willis now in the winter circuit Richard the doctor's name pitcher together. The doctor advised against you even racing the day. The doctor told you not to race. And yet this week your son. His worst won his first major race. And today you come from a long dry streak of over a year. What's the feeling is? Unreal. You know what I mean for anybody to to win a race? Like just like what we want. You know, we really wasn't that competitive stayed right in the thick of it. But we couldn't lead. And then we got two breaks out there at last and one race. And you know, then Kyle won the race last week. I ever sit down by scoring one race. And you know, just essentially, oh, it's been unreal. All week. And you know, we really been good running that good. We've been worried about it. But I think everybody knew that if we work hard enough long enough we'd get to right breaks and we'd win. And that's what when did you realize? There was a chance to win that. There was trouble in front of you. When I say what happened when we come off with number two corner. Darryl and Maceo up in fort was based racing at that time for third place. And I looked looked ahead. And I seen the cautioned not hot deal for radio prevail to pan out where the caution was because it was like coming up before I didn't want to drive in black and he said come on come on. And when I got just as I start in third corner. I could see that it was number one number two car, you know, kale in and Alison in, you know, my heart went, right? Luma problem ahead Emiko. I said well, the Moran for the plague and here comes eighty eight you know, in eight eight run run a whole lot better. Now was he just was lucky to rent second. The only person that could be any prouder today would be your father the man who started all this. What about the situation you've had two winters this week? It just really exciting. I I'm real pleased with the competition they done and our good man upstairs who was with us just a little bit the voice of Lee petty. We'll turn it back to radio control for today's report. Here's Jacka route. Well, veteran Winston Cup Grand National driver. Darrell Waltrip of Franklin Tennessee capitalized upon the misfortune of Dale Earnhardt and the whims of mother nature to capture the nineteen Seventy-nine edition of the Daytona sportsman three hundred here yesterday at Daytona International Speedway. It looked as if Waltrip and Earnhardt would run right down to the wire locked together until a right rear tire went down earnhardt's, Austrian racing Monte Carlo. And then several minutes later while the race was under caution. The skies opened up for the second time necessitating the second red flag situation of the day in eventually the official conclusion of the race in victory lane. However, Darrell Waltrip readily agreed to take the win. No matter how it happened to be served up finishing second with Sterling Marlin in the Cunningham. Kelly Chevrolet with Ray Hendrick's surviving for third. Sam summers was fourth in j d mcduffie took the fifth position. There was a terrible seven car mealy on the fourth lap of the sportsman three hundred and we'll take a detailed look at what happened after this. Message this year sportsman three hundred was marred by what many track observers say is one of the most spectacular crashes in recent memory here at Daytona International Speedway, and our turn correspondent for that day was Mike joy. And he was some thirty feet away from the action and filed this report a fiery seven car chain-reaction collision. Marred the running of yesterday's Daytona sportsman three hundred here Daytona International Speedway. Jack Ingram's Ford was running among the leaders when he apparently lost his engine down in the west banking of the speedway and dropped low on the racetrack. Intern turn number one, Freddie Smith Spartanburg, South Carolina following Ingram. Got oil and debris on his windshield. And Smith's car spun in turn number two veteran driver Joe Persson following Freddie.

Consulate some six hundred feet with Smith's car coming to rest just barely on the infield grass and persona and coming to a stop some three hundred feet down the backstretch in the low group of the race track. Del mar coward coming out of turn. Number two. Still at speed got caught up into Brie and his car lost control and slammed into percents while persona was stopped and coward was still going full tilt down the race track. The impact destroyed the rear end of personas car and tore open the fuel cell and the Murph for Soanes mercury was immediately engulfed in flames for some started unbuckle himself and climb out of the car. But heard the sounds of more crashing behind him so remained in the machine though. It was completely on fire. Huey town. Alabama driver red farmer had crashed to the infield and attempt to avoid the accident along with Jacksonville's, buddy. Biles byles car got up on its right side and slid that way, some four hundred feet before coming to rest on its wheels. Don Williams of Madison, Florida put his Chevrolet into the wall.
