"Get I America. It's the moment you've been waiting for. That's right outback delivery is here. They can enjoy lawyer affect pirates anyway pass tickets at Santa Katsuo in its. He will die potty planets Kookaburra wings types. Jerry was thanking loves to for night time. It's you bet dot com advice. Your oldest because aspect delivery is here at back. Stackhouse Aussie rules delivery viability varies delivery charge by applying this is out loud on M. R. N. dot com presented by Bloom and Mondays at outback steakhouse and also brought to you by Hercules tires tires ride on our strength it ran out loud presented by outback steakhouse and the the playoffs are here in the cup series when he came alongside Joey Meyer. Finally the regular season is done kyle busch the regular season champion even though that was determined determine the week ago at Darlington Kevin Harvick wins again that means it is if you're watching on a Monday a Monday go by outback steakhouse and get a free bringing onion. Little Joey is excited. He's happy layoffs are here and what a wild weekend we saw at Indianapolis Motor speedway several hard crashes and some xfinity drivers almost getting into a fight and texting that they were and nothing really happened yet <hes> so three of the last seven races were won by the same guy who in the first nineteen races didn't win any <hes> and they were where's Kevin Harvick and Rodney Children's. They've lost touch now. They're fine. They were always fast is through all that we've set at a number of times on this show right here. Every Monday morning we show up the one thing that they didn't have a problem with going fast and that's kind of Environment Ed GonNa be competitive. Everything else was fixable everything else you could identify when you don't have speed you don't know if it's a spring or shock shock or a motor or a driver or engine you don't know you're kind of pointing fingers right but when your car's fast and you can identify a mistake steak or a lack of execution that's a home run <hes> and clearly those guys winning the last three of seven could easily have won the last four of ten the last five have a twelve. Those guys have been fast. How about Bubba Wallace. Wasn't that spectacular to see them legitimately or nothing. We we saw earlier in this year. The seventy seventy seven car won a race at Daytona rain out really cool story for that was circumstance exactly but for Darrell bubba Wallace and the forty three guys realistically eight underfunded ended team <hes> they're not one of the big powerhouses that we've come to learn with the Gibbs and Hendrik indepence guys but he ran third and second and they were asked in the first practice yeah it was really good and he showed exactly why Richard Petty motorsports has put him behind that car <hes> he had a good car all weekend he qualified relatively well but really race well all afternoon and overcame a pit road problem to fight his way back up there could have sunk them easily exactly that was and that was one of those things things at. Indianapolis Motor speedway the very first pitstop we saw some cars down and ironically enough. I believe to the best of my knowledge that Darryl actually may have not caused it but triggered the mayhem behind him by kind of overshooting his pit box and you gotta turn in tight and stop and it's really according affect that what up man five or six seven Karya Aria but Indianapolis Motor speedway showed yesterday the difficulty it is to get around we saw multiple wrecks and not just single car. Oh I lost my balance. I'm going to spend out by myself. Self multiple big ones <hes> and there were some vicious rex with brackets. We haven't really seventy now but what it shows with this package guys have to be meaner and angrier on injury starts and they've ever had to be when you're on the gas and you've already got it floored and you're already in fourth gear and you're accelerating the best your ability the the only thing you can do is screw your neighbor take and steal as much from him as possible to get by him because if he gets by you and he's he's wide open and your wide open your all you can imagine this not in your favor exactly all you can do so we start we saw a lot of those guys simply stealing and beating their neighbors hard as they could on these restarts and that's why a lot of these cars got together so Kyle Busch right then you can't pass with this package. Is he right. He's been saying saying in almost all year you it's difficult. It's diff- whenever you give something more to a race car and then following a race car takes ecstatic away. I eat arrow. We have downforce whenever you have a car that has a Lotta downforce but then getting in behind the car takes it away. It's a bigger bigger penalty. If no car had any downforce within getting in behind the car is no penalty that makes sense. Yep But now you've given a lot of downforce and you get in behind. It's a larger penalty. were running around. This is the first time in a long time that forever that a cup car ran around qualifying wide open <hes> the car had so much drag so much downforce and new tires new tires soon ran around wide open if you're trying to restart that way and your wide open and and the guy next to you is wide open the only thing you can do is steal from him and that means trying to get him to get out of the gas trying to side draft draft trying to aero. Give him the disadvantage and that's why these cars were so close. Multiple wrecks were caused. If we look at guys side-by-side trying it is rubbed the door decals off and ended up getting that inside car loose and after that it's essentially a big one <hes> that's happening and most of the time we saw it off a turn too too early in Iran because realistically down in three and four guys are kind of spread out already royalty wide open the momentum's going when you're still crowded you mean most most of the events took place over on the I would say the south end of the track over and turns one and two and it was really just guys being having to be mean to you know that you come to a four-way stop. There's always that guy arrives through having to make your moves on restarts isn't new no that's where a lot of the guys have been saying for a few years now that you you have to really take advantage of restarts well and the thing about Indianapolis Motor speedway with being so flat. It's not conducive to being to to to begin with <hes> the guy on the outside. Elaine really has the disadvantage because he's taking a longer way around the track right yeah and that guy on the bottom doesn't wanna live because he's going to try to get as much as he can. It provided some of some really good excitement if you if you're looking from a fan standpoint but we tore a lot of race cars in the end of the day. Kevin Harvick's guys ran up front qualified on the pole ran up front all day long and Dan came home the victors Kudos to them. He did win the race. He is in the playoffs solidly as we mentioned earlier three wins on the season. Let's hear what he had to say after the race we've we've definitely made some strides in and getting where we closer to where we want to be. I think we still have some you know some things that we have to work on it at certain styles racetracks but this is survive in advance and you don't necessarily have to have the fastest car. We had the fastest car day. Maybe not the best handling car but we survived <hes> and you know really a day like today is is a lot like how you're going to have to approach you know every race in the playoffs and it's really about the details of how you go through practice and how you start the race and you know what you do when things are wrong and what you doing things or writen and and it's just covering those details and it's a one week at a time grind <hes>. I don't think today's race sins a message. <hes> you know to to anybody other other than we are doing a good job over the last few months of on the days when we have cars that are capable of winning. We've been you know getting good finishes out of him and Bin to Victory Lane a few few times over the last three months so that's the most important thing is is that you know. I think for us. We have a lot of confidence in each other and the things that we're doing right now and sometimes sometimes that's more important than fast cars eliminating the mistakes they go to victory lane and they do roll into the playoffs with some momentum yeah momentum again and we mentioned it <hes> multiple times when you have it. It's cool. When you don't have your head anything so right now. Those guys clearly have the momentum and we use the word momentum madam. You could almost substitute it for confidence yeah. You're not pointing fingers. You're not searching for answers. You're continually doing what you've been doing because it's been successful bill and that's where that momentum word. Kinda gets used slash. Confidence is really the more important thing you know what you're doing. You're you're pit crew twenty-six races into the season you know they're now. They're routine has been established because clearly up to that point. They've been making mistakes on pit road so now they've got. Those things worked out. The strategies worked out the evolution of this car. Twenty six races in has worked out so now we know there's no searching you now. It's a matter of taking what we have and still making it better for these last ten races all right the playoffs are set to begin at Las Vegas Motor speedway coming up this weekend it will also be the end of the first round in the Gander outdoors truck series reas- playoffs the xfinity guys one more race to go before their playoff field is that we'll talk about all that still ahead on out loud.

This is our sport. This is our house us at freightliner. Innovation is at their core in fact freightliner was created nearly eight years ago out of a need for something new entrusting tha take that innovation still drives as they constantly were to make their industry-leading safer more dependable and even more efficient all the things that make a smart business decision a winning business decision no matter what you may learn more about freightliner on highway trucks at freightliner dot. Com freightliner run smart now. I know what we had. I mean we had lightning in a bottle. I'm we had fifteen fifteen out of seventeen years or fourteen out of seventeen years is that or just out of this world and we had a great run. There is no doubt about it but unfortunately just the just where our relationship went in the final couple of years. We weren't bringing the best out of one another and that's why we had to had to change pass. I still think is best achieved ever walked through the garage area. I do I miss biggest biggest fan of proponent. William is a great student for him to teach in evolve as a driver so I'm happy for them. Of course I want to beat them of course won't outrun them but it's Chad Kaos and he knows what he is doing and he's developing William at a rapid rate. They're doing a great job. How would I have learned through this. Two or three year. Drought drought in difficult time just how important the team is. I've known it. I've lived it and I've been the beneficiary of some amazing teams. James and I just didn't realize how fragile was until I got involved and had to start building that and help select the right people to put in place to build that team. It's been it's. It's been interesting. Jerry enough through it. I've learned a ton I mean I I really have and I think we're in a spot. Now that that everybody can see where where the hard work has gone then we're starting to this show up and perform Jimmy Johnson talking about the parting of ways with he and Chad canals in the off season now for the first time in the modern era. If you all of the chase and the playoffs Jimmy Johnson seven time champ will not be a part of it. He's working with cliff. Daniels now is engineer and those guys really do seem to click together and they were very very fast car before <hes> the thing that you mentioned earlier happened a car on the outside of him simply pulled him around no contact it just the air pulled him around ironically enough the twenty four car which had canals and those guys out there raising hard for a position on initial restart <hes> a record that realistically probably is going to be very difficult to to attain again the run he had from the first year of the initial chase with through the modifications all the way with now we have the playoff system is his first first year not being in that top sixteen that last ten used to be ten cars and expanded to twelve and now sixteen <hes> but him in. Chad canals had a record of the seven seven championships <hes> besides Dale earnhardt Richard Petty. That's going to be tough to attain. The five in a row was unbelievable right. I don't think anybody will ever do that again. I mean that's it's just amazing to see that and and again knowing the drivers that he'd beat <hes> okay so we could see five championships in a row in the truck series if you were over there dominating the field is a little bit thinner but you're talking about in the heart in the meat of the industry when he won those five against some really good team when I was in a Taytay right right but on the other end of that spectrum you had drivers that were trying to get in for the very first time and guys were getting in maybe the second or third time and and we were really looking forward to Daniels whereas you know coming from that the switch from Stewart Haas <hes> over to Stewart Hospital. I'm saying and trying to get his way into the first time in just had a problem early points points. He missed it by four points and Ryan. Newman is the guy who squeaks in at the very end he and Clint Boyer tied. You mentioned William Byron Thirteenth seed for him. Kyle Busch the top seed Denny Hamlin Second Martin true ex junior third one of those guys have in common yeah the same same they they run out of the same house yeah the same little little shop over here in Huntersville Ville Yeah Yeah so they they've got really going on heading into the playoffs. Joey Logano the four seed Kevin Harvick the fifth seed as we get set to head to Las Vegas Motor speedway this weekend and opened the playoffs. Go back to something. Kevin Harvick said there a moment ago about survive in advance and I've always liked that phrase we hear it in association with the NC double a basketball tournament and and it's kind of the way that we have to approach these playoffs on the Cup side in particular. I've heard more than one guy say that or a variation of that. It's not go out like gangbusters particularly in the early rounds. It's don't do anything dumb to knock yourself out. Somebody is going to have some trouble. Somebody will not advance because of something that happens to them. Some something something circumstantial yeah interesting. We have ten races left but there's only one race. Were you can win the championship the last one you have to get their first. I now you can make such critical mistakes or catastrophic failures in your execution that you won't get the homestead but once you get outside and you're not there. There's nothing you can do to get back in and so that's what they're looking to do this. I three ray segment we go. We Go Vegas you know and Edmund Richmond and then the ruble. You don't want to have anything that knocks you out and be not move onto the last it's not it's not necessarily dominate the field. Don't do anything bad bad exactly right because it's hard to make up with these sixteen drivers. Everybody has that same mentality so it's not like everybody else's throwing haymakers and just a matter of where the Jacks ax fall on the ground and I'm I'm GONNA be fine. If you're making mistakes and others aren't it's hard to leapfrog them. Once you made your mistake and a guy like Kyle Busch who wins the regular regular season championship against the extra bonus points he rose into the playoffs fifteen points ahead of second-placed him because he won the regular season championship. That's a guy that's going to be hard it to derail in that first segment. I mean he could theoretically have to maybe even three not graces and still advanced just on the point cushion that he's built up if you look at the playoff points and all that that he's accumulated during the regular season he's one of the few drivers that could make a mistake in this first round not be concerned yes. He has that that cushion two two years ago when Martin Tricks Junior essentially had a fifty point cushion going into the playoffs he just need to show up to the race track and do whatever he wanted to do and he was getting home just ride around and he was fine the last two two years. We had the big three we've had now. We have really nobody sitting on top of each other from a big three or big to our big four standpoint. Everybody has to be on their their mind. Their PS and QS men not not make the mistakes to take themselves out again once you get out. You can't get back tough. I was talking with Kyle Larson Darlington and he said once you have that bad racing around you pretty much know you almost have to win. You have to keep advancing exactly now. As far as that playoff mentality goes we chatted with brackets lasky about that or heard what he he said. Let's take a look at that. It's a tough stretch it. It's meant to be tough. <hes> it's really intentionally designed to be tough quite honestly <hes> and <hes> it's it's part of the <hes> against the responsibility of of having a great team to drive for <hes> and and having <hes> you know an opportunity to leave a mark on sport that's been around for decades and we'll be around for decades after. I'm gone so that's a a real special time in anyone's life and <hes> I think <hes> you just I just WanNa make the most of three wins on the season for bratty comes in as the sixth seed in the playoffs and he and his teammate Joey Logano in pretty good shape as we roll into the first round here as you mentioned Vegas Richmond and the Roble at Charlotte Motor speedway <hes> one other point about Brad though just a violent violent crash that he had Indianapolis. Do you think we might see something changed at that point where he wrecked in the track before we go back it absolutely astounds me how we as a series or an industry can roll around a two mile or a mile and a half track or two point six six at Talladega track and inevitably spin out and find the ten foot area and around two point six. That's the worst area to hit and we find it. What are the odds it happens more more. We can say over and over and over again and clearly that position on the track now. The tracks idea was look. We had a spot there. It was well protected you. You got out of your car unhurt. They were tires. There and also in speedways mentality was yeah. We had an area there but we did a good job. Protecting it and rightfully so brad was not hurt. It was a vicious wreck between the tire barriers and the he poured out of the car essentially because it was up at an angle and he's got to get me out of it was like an escape hatch move but at this speeds it we're going because we're running so wide open you don't have the opportunity to lift until after the wreck and your you had like he hit the wall and really turn left and never slowed down because the car was never sitting on its tires going straight. He was just scrubbing <hes> not having any control and going to that in that that area so it'll be interesting to see the track has reached out to him. He wanted to make point with indycar drivers and again. That track isn't just a oval anymore. It's got a road course and that's portion the road course that the cars come out on the backstretch. <hes> and that's why that opening is there so it'll be interesting to see how they how they do address it or attack the safety of it but realistically. Brad wasn't hurt so again. Kudos to the speedway <hes> because in the past we've Seen Jeff Gordon hit those inside walls at weren't protected. Let's forget the car safety itself because that's a factor actor in addition yet but it was golly was violent. It was an amazing incident but again it looked and Brad actually said I said Man <hes> you can see wreck years ago at California and took a helicopter ride to the hospital. I said that was spectacular. This one looked worse. He Goes Nah wasn't worse. It just looked that way so good and landing castle with violent crashes ashes well some big crashes on the Xfinity side. We'll talk about them in a moment as their regular season finale comes up. Why do you think we saw so many of those harder crashes than we've seen in years past indy well because again you're wide open and your corner speeds because the amount of downforce we have we are entering the corner and going through the corner owner and a much faster speed than we were in the past we used to have faster straightaway speedo and slower corner speeds. Now we've gotten slower straightaway speeds. It's and faster corner speeds and actually one of the concerns that goodyear has to work on because our loads on these tires are higher. Even though the overall speed is down our corner her speeds and our entry speeds are a little bit higher so as we go through these first three races in the playoffs Las Vegas Richmond and the role at Charlotte you look toward the back of that field and you see guys from like <hes>. I don't know say ninth eighth ninth on Back Kyle Larson Alex Bowman Eric Jones Ryan Blaney there you see the the the the field <hes> William Byron Eric Merola Clint Boyer Ryan Newman those guys who is a guy who can kind of pop out of that group and maybe be a dark horse well without a caution yesterday. The one person that comes to mind is over on the right side of that screen. That's the number twelve or Ryan Blaney. There simply running really well all over the team penske camp but they simply can't finish the deal right yeah. That's one of those <hes> similar to what we talked about with Kevin Harlan earlier in the year. Kevin Harvick was having having the same issue but over on that right side. You've seen the the elevation of William Byron you seen Eric Jones winning a week ago. Any one of those guys could really jumped to the forefront but again. It's going to be hard to leapfrog four five really good guys like who can't win a race Kyle Busch Denny Hamlin Tricks Kevin Harvick Joy Lugano Brackets laskey. They've all all won multiple races this year. That's going to be hard to leapfrog and get over them so you're not looking to try to beat all them guys right now. You just don't want to be at the bottom of that list. At the end of this first I <hes> stage four guys will be eliminated after those first three races do those tracks favor any driver or drivers in particular with Vegas Richmond and the and the royal level you know I think when you go to Vegas anything if you can be associated with a gibbs car you know and that's the Eric Jones mentality over there. He was over on the right side of that screen to the point section section. You know I think he really looks promising and I'm actually going to say the only person I see that. That's at a deficit. It'd be easier. Safe would be like a Ryan Newman. <hes> that rash guys you haven't seen the speed from them to say we're going to go out and advance by winning but he such a blue-collar journeymen were consistent exactly right He. He's daddy exactly and no mistakes. Those guys don't tear up a bunch of race cars and they just like at the end of the day. You're like Newman. The finished finished seventh. How do you finish twelfth and he'll just blue collar you to death so that's the only the the deficit is because of Ryan Newman but it's really about the support forecast around him all right another time out here on out loud. We've still got some xfinity series action talk about as they face their regular season finale at Las Vegas and it's the the elimination race in the playoffs for the Gander outdoors truck series. Brett MOFFITT has won the first two. We'll talk about that next. Did I America. It's the moment you've been waiting for. That's right outback.

Let's talk a little bit of truck racing because they had the first two races of their playoff off run. Brett moffitt defending series champ with a new team. This year goes out and wins. Bristol then goes out and wins the road course in Canada now facing racing Las Vegas. He's already locked into the next round but two guys are going to be eliminated here after Las Vegas Motor speedway. I'm blown away that simply you talk about a guy. That's it's a staple of the truck. Series Been Johnny solder has just been tripping over themselves <hes> and and with with the issue of not being able to identify Hanafie why they're they're not like in the Kevin Harvick mentality of earlier say our trucks have been stupid fast and we're just tripping over our feet on pit road yeah. It's just been an anomaly of of years for Johnny. Solder 'cause you you just can't him and Matt craft in a realistically like the new Ron Hornets and Mike Skinner. They were in that series and they're representing the series areas and you're always going to be in the top two or three battling positions. Johnny simply hasn't had the year that he's wanted to over there backing authorities four or remember he had all that stuff in the middle part of the season where he got tangled up with Austin. Hill and then wound up being suspended for a race. He's only two points out chasing his teammate grant in finger to advance Tyler Ancram in the eighth spot and he's some fourteen points back but two guys will not advance after Las Vegas Motor speedway and you have to look at the usual suspects Brett Moffitt. There's already one to Ross chastain has been very fast freezing up into the third spot in the standings and Matt Craft and another veteran who has a really good record over history not necessarily <unk> this year on the mile and a half tracks and Austin hills. Come on of late as well yeah. They need to go to Vegas <hes> every driver you just mentioned and just have a good race <hes> we don't need to be. We don't need put a cap on it becomes Superman <hes> the driver. That's having the most fun so far is realistically ten races. Ago Wasn't doesn't even collecting points off dame. Ross chastain always got a smile on his face always realistically <hes>. I don't want to say flipping the series the bird if you will but really has no concern over who cares what about what he's doing like. He doesn't if he upsets anybody or upset everybody. He's happy about it because that's what got him here. Driving up watermelon big time driving hard and having those niece motorsports guys really give him really fast trucks they they do have the alliance with G. L. S. but but he's beating those guys right. He's beating guys that realistically in the past have been considered better drivers and now he's beating them in their own equipment so Kudos to those guys. That's the one driver I hope can make homestead to to put on the show there because again that kind of track favorites his driving style but the other guys as we you mentioned Johnny Sauter only two points out. This thing is still wide open. One of the guys could win that we don't expect one of the guys <hes> could beat somebody by what three spots and advance. That's all takes at this point. The the margin is so close at the back end of the field. That's all it takes you know in truck racing at Vegas again as a as a wide open scenario these guys are going to be. It's almost like a mini daytona slash slash Talladega. It's a full on draft wide open for most of the corners and the thing offers that Vegas as you can go from the very bottom all the way to the top to try to get the best run possible possible so if your trucks not handling on the bottom line you can go to the middle or top and figure out where it is but you're going to be wide open for most of that mile and a half and produces one of the best race of the weekend we we will have by the way here on the motor racing network the world of West Gate. Two Hundred Gander outdoors truck series playoff race number three eight thirty this coming Friday and it is is Friday the thirteenth. Are you superstitious. Now it'll bring justice. It'll be a full moon yeah. I'm not really superstitious right. It's just a little service officious that makes all the difference as we go out there for a tripleheader weekend. It's GonNa be interesting to see. You've got a lot of team. Trucks running together in in the <hes> in the truck series there with Stewart freeze and also having the affiliation with then you've got the door sport guys with crafting and finger and johnny solder up in the standings yeah. I'm looking forward to the next three races in the truck so they don't go consecutively but they're they're the Vegas race which will be cut off and you got Talladega which who knows it was just crazy and then on the complete opposite end of Talladega Martinsville Yeah Right. It's like a slow motion. Talladega if you will be as much carnage at Martinsville's at Talladega will produce but the next three races obviously give you a really good idea. It's going to really dwindle the field down and then really put the pressure on whoever goes the Phoenix to try to make that last cut of the final four four for homestead so they have a really good set racist coming up that will provide a lot of good opportunities for the good teams as long as they don't make mistakes and anything can still happen for sure. We've seen a a lot of that in the truck series so far. This season set for another time out here on. 'em Are out loud. We'll talk about some xfinity racing and what we can expect there when we come back America. It's the moment you've all been waiting for. That's right outback delivery is here.

Michael Annett is over at junior motor sports and has won a race early or earlier in the year and moved on to the first round of the playoffs and they got together and for whatever the reason again Mike Harmon just trying to make a living man yeah. He's out there with his own team. It's M. HR Mike harmon racing <hes> and they got in each other's way and it ripped up Michael and that's car and Michael Michael Annett voiced his displeasure as driving has drivers do and I think he kind of went overboard and Mike Harmon said well and my Karma Heftier got <hes> Michael and that's it's not <hes> and that would be an interesting contest hustle. Yes Yep that'd be an interesting tussle because you have the youth and enthusiasm of Michael Lynette and you have the heft of Michael Harmon and I'm not sure that one wouldn't really doubt do the other one and the next thing you know. It's it's it's blown up on social media yeah and here we go people are going. Are they really good applebee's. What's going on my Karma was at Applebee's and chose to Curtis. I thought it was nice of him to invite him over. He was inviting him for anything pleasant. They were GONNA stand in line at the buffet in chat a little bit and <hes> but the first time I've ever seen applebee's involved with an invitation to kick my but yeah it's <hes> it was. It was certainly unique back on the track. Meanwhile Kyle Busch wins again at Indy. He will not be able to raise as many in the xfinity series next year this year. They're cutting them back. The Cup guys back again voiced his displeasure about that decision but I can understand both sides of the argument there but be that as it may just all comes home second still looking for that first victory of the season did pick up stage win but has anything changed the dynamic make from what we've been talking about all season the big three and who else is going to be in that group Justin. All Guy was on the bumper of KABUA's that entire last lap that was really an amazing easing finish <hes> with again cars that were very equally done. KABUA's games from back <hes> earlier from the strategy that he played and was able to stay out front and had the lead lead and justice simply couldn't by him and I think that's what we looked for from Justin even though he didn't win a race that's the roar hasn't yet has at one yeah yeah yeah. He didn't win that race and hasn't won this year but we've been talking about me personally expecting him to be in contention the whole time and that's not like they've been running around in the bags beyon- and again. That's one of those teams like the Kevin Harvick Rodney Children's nineteen races of this year. Speed wasn't the problem album it right everything else that you can go back and identify whether it was the car number was put on wrong to a pit road issue to what is here exactly or it was something else to see other track even though. Oh he didn't win on Saturday that performance when we talk about momentum again it gives them the confidence to quit pointing go. Hey we can do this and that's the Guy Still Hill I'm still saying he's going to contend with those other big three guys that we've seen perform all year Austin Syndrich and other guy to keep an eye on he's kind of crept up the board here late in the season with a couple of of course victories and they do have the road coming back where he should be very good again foaming at the mouth foaming at the mouth three road course earlier. He could've won easily. <hes> one the two those are good on all three of one all three winning contention and could have really <hes> so that rivals the one he's looking to capitalize on that one win to be able to get him to the next day the play yet to go to the next round now as they roll into. Las Vegas Motor speedway. What kind of an event can we expect there that that track surface is getting more worn every single day. It seems like a now it's become attract where you have to pay more and more attention to your tires and not only that but it does it offers up just like the truck series not near near as much wide open throttle but realistically the track does open a very wide for that series as well and produces really good racing because we talked earlier when a car is following following a car you have these guys following each other and this guy can't run as fast as this guy but if I can move around the track I love your car yesterday but if I can move around around this guy's not penalizing this Guy Arrow and that's what Las Vegas offers is the simple fact that I can move away from the penalty and be able to get by you if I have an equal or or better car but you can't do that in a place like Indianapolis because you pretty much got to be young low right plus they don't have joey and little her care to help to make it happen <music> now see he he just fainted on your there as we move to the end of the regular season in the xfinity series not much drama at the back of the pack their Ryan Sieg in I met twelfth spot the final spot that will advance and make the post season and he's got like a hundred and some point lead over the next guy in line regarding yeah the only thing would have to happen as one of those guys outside of the top twelve would be pull off a miracle or some kind of win again <hes> nothing against their talents. Jeremy Clements Pass Winter. We Got Brandon Brown Ray Black Junior. Josh Williams Garrett Smith ethylene those cars <hes> there. I have a tier system. I don't know if we've ever talked about on the show but there are tier three team <hes> and it's difficult to jump right in a tier one and be contending for a win their solidly in tier three their hopes are to gain and become a tier two team yeah and that's what that's what their goals are. We are looking for the the the the just all of the world that are solidly Tier Two. They need to take that step to become a tier one. I think the top twelve with Ryan see holding holding down that twelfth spot is pretty comfortable. Yeah it's GonNa. He can't be caught from behind this knowing that we have to have a new winner say to knock a guy like that out of contention all right that <hes> where we're going to head this week in Las Vegas Motor speedway to open the Cup series playoffs the sixteen drivers will kick things off out in Sin City and what happens in Vegas stays stays in Vegas. Don't forget a big week coming up here on the motor racing network. Nascar live comes your way Tuesday night at seven o'clock eastern time Mike Bagley is your host a lot out of playoff talk coming up on that show as well and then we get back in action here on the motor racing network Friday the thirteenth the world of West Gate Two hundred third playoff race in the Gander outdoors with truck series comes your way Friday night eight thirty.

Kaulig going full-time racing in 2022; Keselowski interview

"Ready actors a new horror movie with a promising young star. She was so good at playing a killer. I'm keith morrison subscribed for free today. Lines newest podcast killer role. A story was surprises. Even hollywood couldn't have imagined available now. Wherever you get your podcasts down the back straightaway. Just laskey frisky. Caution is on the speedway the winner of the sixty third running of the daytona five hundred. Michael mcdonald checkered flags waving at the start. Finish line and christopher val as a winner in the nascar cup series. The second win in his career. William byron scores. The win here tonight at the homestead miami. Speedway kyle larson down the nila straightaway. What an afternoon for the five wins in the pennzoil. Four hundred in dominating style here he comes up off. Turn number four checkered flag in the air. Five races in two thousand twenty twenty one five different winners to start off. The season correct wins. Here's dr lady making a statement. Today the creek runs at a lot of patients this afternoon. Brian blaney winston polls honor. Ut five hundred. Joey lugano will be the first driver in a half century to win on dirt and cup series as he wins the food city at bristol speedway alex bowman coming out of nowhere on the last restart when it mattered. The most comes up and pinch the win at his lousy. His picked up the win win number thirty five rat laos beat everybody welcome to motormouth. That was great. Look at all the winners this year. We've had a lot of them myself. We are real motormouth today. I it's fascinating watching when you see it and you realize we've only had one repeat winner and it's just been an incredible stars of the year. Who last year was crazy year with with the way they raced but this year utah okay. They'll come down. They'll be some semblance of calmness to the to the cup schedule but now it is hard for me to believe that each week somebody rises above everybody else and it's not been really anybody but true. That sounded a couple times. Yeah i think was so impressive is is that you look at the list. That hasn't won yet. That we know is going to or the attentional is high every single week for them to win and to add to this list so nine and ten weeks of or ten race. That's pretty incredible. And and just anxious to see is going to be that person denny hamlin that has obviously been the most consistent runner inside that top five with opportunities to win multiple races. Will he continue that or can you give that first win this weekend. So we'll we have sixteen winners will have more than sixteen winners. Shoot listen before the before. The player at this rate were owner. We're on track for about twenty okay. I mean Yeah was it twenty twenty six races to the playoffs that we may end up with twenty five or twenty six. I have no idea because the way these races play out. And the way you keep waiting for for harvick to step up cow bush to step up the eleven of denny hamlin and there's so much talk about bubba wallace and some of these new teams you keep waiting for them. If all these guys hit somewhere somewhere then yeah we. We stand the chance of having seventeen or eighteen different winters. I think every time that. I think that we're going to hit around fourteen that it's going to stop there. But then all of a sudden i think about the different road courses the new venue asa coda and road america and then the last race before the playoffs daytona whereas we know anybody can win so that makes me think that we easily can get to that sixteen number. I don't. I don't mean this in a bad way but you always have one or two wild card winners. And we've already had michael mcdowell and christopher bail to new winters this year you know that have popped in. And you've got kyle larson who came back. He's jumped in. That's three out of what we've had now that we didn't have last year to add to that list so if you just take last year's list and those three then yeah we're we're in that mix. We got some practices. The new tracks practice coming up who that help with that hurt. We got some qualified and those races. Also if you if we had a qualified physician here and somebody who's going to sit on the pole for being the first caller who would that be out of probably out of. Oh how nasty is high now. We've we've awarded you the poll winner. You're up I wanna talk about a fellow from hometown. Akron ohio matt colleague. They announced that they're going to go cup. Racing and twenty twenty two Do we feel that. Aj almond dinger will be the one to get that right. And what would be some real Realistic expectations for them next year. Well that's a that's a great question. Everything and first off. It's great to see mackall done a lot for this sport and obviously the series in particular so far. But it's nice to see that he's built this up well run organization. They do a lot of good things and they have a lot of good drivers and but the question about we'll be that driver I think if he he seems to be an matt colleagues speaking of that he really Likes loyalty. And i think that he'll promote from within and aj seems to be that natural one you and that's a great point that at that is a great point. I think the mets are kinda guy who make them with two teams i. I don't think that's your point. You know he comes with a veteran and aj and then he brings one of his other daughters. What i do like what a do like is that matt has followed. The plan are seems to follow the plan. That nascar laid out all those years ago. Starting xfinity team who've into a cup team a new owner coming into the cup side. That's what has to be exciting as we look the sport. And you've got the eighty year old. Richard petty's and the rick hendrick and the jack rushes and the joe gibbs. We need these guys to come along. That to me is as exciting as anything about this. This announcement was interested in. He said that we're going to have one cup team. Full-time i sure we might have to. Yeah i mean. He threw it out there we might have to. He said he wasn't worried about getting a charter. Said it wasn't losing sleep over that so it'll be interesting to me for for a guy like colleague this free agency this year. I think it's gonna be crazy. I think that there are a lot of drivers that are going to be in different places. Could he possibly find a way through for just a moment. Could he possibly find a way to get a an established guy got its winning races right now in find a way to bring him into that company as a part owner. Something like that. Think about tony stewart. And what he's done right so so could call pool something off like that and a guy like matt. He'll roll the dice like you're trying to make something happen. I think i mean i think. Aj almundena would be a great big if aj or wants to do it as you guys know as well as i do he. He likes xfinity series. It's twenty percent the pressure of a cup series and would want to do it but without schedules with all the road courses and a super speedways. Aj would be a really good. Pick and mac. Hawkeye's i mean. He is a proven really good businessman. That's how he made his money to in this but he's built this from the ground up kind of piece by piece and now he's waiting until a season where we've got a new car. Coming ange point. Things are going to be more equal supposedly cheaper in the long run here so that might free up dollars to do that. So that's a great point that you bring out that you know. He might be willing to to make that move and a new car. If you if you talk to the owners and listen what nascar says. They had hoped that the new car would bring you owners. They hope that the reorganization and the alignment of the race teams. And everything would bring new owners and listen. I'm excited about it because we're headed. We're not headed from this. Thirty six cars to fifteen cars. We're headed from thirty six to forty six cards. We're headed up not down the field. It's going to be more competitive more competitive and think about this. Also you know colleague grayson is right there. Welcome north carolina. Richards is right there and welcome. North carolina. track house is right there. L. carolina right air. Welcome north carolina. So you potentially could see five teams run out of that complex. Has two children so not only. Do you bring colleague in not only is track to a good job. All that elevates richards race and so you might see potentially a power shift in how are cr can can perform next year with this new cars. Just next year is going to be fast and it is good question. Carl wasn't good star man. It's what's always thought about as easy normally disagree with dust and long last week we got him about. We thought there was some guys in there that we didn't think should be in there. This week does along as power. Rankings app data cow bushes out. Denney handling i. William byron william barring second martin shoes vex third but look at that kevin harvick. What do you guys think of dozens. Power reagan's this week. How does how does he come up with the power rankings. Because here's a guy that had to pit road. Penalties did is our number one in the power rankings and a guy this one to racist number. I don't quite understand the process. He's a forest consistency in his consistently speeding. On pit road. yes. I'm sorry. I'm not picking on duty saying and just saying a look at the in i do i quit. You know kevin harvick. I'm sorry how can he be. That's not a power team right now. So and he didn't show me anything at talladega. That should have moved him. Put him in a place. And when i look at some of that stuff and i know that that alex bowman has has won a race but honestly i guess i look at the power rankings. A little bit different. Because i look at them. Globally over the course of seven or eight races not over one race. So i'm probably out in left. Field like william byron there. I still question. i'm with you. That and he's done a great job but the only person to win two races just because he hadn't had to racist since then since he got that second win they haven't been stellar but it's not like he's run bad true. So why isn't he. The number one guy at something. I've found fascinating at talladega was that i saw two drivers that they always race hard. But at at talladega. They're not who uc fighting and clawing through a good portion of the race trying to make it like they now realize that that might be their chance to win. And that was kevin harvick and kyle busch they. It was like they were attacking that for as their opportunity to get a win. Where in years past. It was an opportunity for just to get some points and not have a bad day a that. That made it interesting to me that that's a great. You know somebody that wasn't in that top. Ten is defending champion. Chase elliott chase elliott's not an atoll and they've not gotten off to the start that that i think we all assume they got red hot at the end of last year. They got rid of you but they haven't shown that this year and you know we've talked a lot about kevin harvick struggles. We talked a lot about kyle. Busch troubles do we put chase elliott in that same conversation. What are they. Is it time if the panic. Button for them where are they. How much improvement do they need to. Well it's three teammates have one when we thought we thought hendrick. I really felt that they were going to be extremely good coming to start this year just because of what we saw of last year especially from chase but the others ran well to but we have been impressive and i. It's not an impressive that he's going out and leading the most laps and doing all of that but he's right there every single week at every different type of track. He's been a factor in been right there in the mix so i think that there are some where. It's always hard to come out after you win that championship. Man and be focused. And and plus you know when you have winning stuff and both of you have been in this position you with frankie ua gary and meet with todd pair. We all been there when we had our stuff. Well the rest of the competitions working really hard to catch up and all of a sudden they passed you. And now you've been sticking with what was working for you and you don't know how to go back and and catch up. Get back ahead. Yeah that's a good point. I talk about chase and the thing is you're just not hit it. They just a beat behind for some reason but the organization has hit. And that's that's the plus side of hendrick motorsports over stewart haas racing. They've not as we talk as we try to. Compare some of these guys with each other. These guys at least know and again. We've all drove when you look across the table. And you see your teammates running. Good you gotta look in the mirror when you go home at some more time you got to look in the mirror and look a year team. It's already you mentioned william barn. Wrote i some stuff. Down about william byron so h straight races with a finish eighth. Oh better he's led races and five and alaska erases. He has a win in going this weekend. He has three straight top ten at kansas. So what's the difference. What new canaan. The best route chief in the truck series for a long time. Yeah i'm not only was the crew chief. He really helped manage. Kbm motorsports but on top of that. When those when when he and william bomber together they were magic in the truck series but it's trump series at right now. This has come in. That same thing is happening in cup is back. The difference for william barring. I think so i think so. Listen you mentioned kuchis. We had we all had kuchis who've worked really well together and we all had kuchis. We couldn't communicate with for some reason. We just spoke different languages. And i think we've seen it with other drivers. I think when joy lugano jumped in that twenty car with zip deli zip delhi was still tony. Stewart's crew chief. He was never joey. Logano crew chief once joy lugano went to pinski and got a crew chief. That was his guy and they believed in each other. We see joy llegado. Okay we in the same way we. I'm buying is back on familiar. Ground back with a familiar voice on the radio back with familiar philosophy. And when you have that familiarity and you look at it. That breeds confidence. Yeah i know when. I hear deal jared over my radio. I'm gonna take it up a notch because i've got confidence in what dale jarrett's telling me and i i think that's what we see. From from william maybe a little bit more. Is that confident walk through the garage area before even gets in a car. Yeah communication and trust to me in that position you try to create that a lot and so many times. You think that this person over here is who i need and sometimes it just comes out of the blue. I don't know that kicked you know whenever we had our most success. Pick that person that we thought that was it but it just happens that way and that's where we environ his complete trust in that organization. What they're doing now in what rudy does for him and and that. You can't substitute anything else. Other than really fast race cars and if you had fifty extra horsepower. You can't put something else better than having that trust in that man. That's making all the calls. So i think also william byron clearly was involved in that decision william byron. I don't know if he was the first one to mention his name. But clearly william byron has worked with him. They spent time together. He and rudy spend a lotta time together. He had he had to be heavily involved in bringing rudy to that organization. And i think ownership matters to i a lot of times. You'll driver you know. There's a saying sit down. Shut up and drive right well when you when the people around you have that attitude about you and i'm not saying they did not saying but it's completely different when you say that's my god. We're going to go to battle with him. Now you have ownership in. And i think i personally think that makes a big difference. Hold you responsible you. I don't i hate to say you try harder yet matters even that much more even though it matters a lot already and he's also growing up when and he was very young and racing experience. Why he's getting a lot of that two things we all know when we drove cars. If we made a suggestion we were going to drive the wheels off because it was our suggestion. So that could that could be a little bit of william to but at same time. I think if if he did have a lot of input in this suggestion. That shows the confidence that rick hendrick has in his decision making ability and shows the he's in this for the long haul with william byron to say. I'll give you whatever it takes. You just tell me. And that shows that's got to be a confidence boost for a to. Well i don't think we. I don't think we should dismiss the check house in a managerial. Yeah yeah now. We we chad. Success as crew chief started to waver. There's no question that happens but at the same time. I have a feeling knowing chad. He's pushing hard. He's making everybody get a little bit more out of everything and you guys know. It's you know we talk about the big stuff and typically it's doing all the little stuff little stuff right and i have a feeling chats pushing pushing a lot of blood and you look at him there in that position and rick hendrick what. He's done over the years with his drivers being with him for a long time. When you look at this driver lineup that they have their. You wonder how many years those four are going to be there together. At hendrick motorsports be looking deadly eight ten years down the road. These are the same for people said. Finally getting rid of chad. We don't have to race. They know he was thinking of four chance cars. Well you you mentioned mentioned great drivers well one of the very best plate. Razors break has laskey. He's going to join us next. It's going to be really fun talking to him about his last. Few laps can't wait to talk to him. Abc's sports championship season presented by american express continues with the kentucky. Derby back in. It's rightful spot. The for saturday. May it all starts to thirty eastern on.

They're only they're only seventy five of these seventy four john limited nbc sports dot com back splash derby at home for your chance to win one in remember please as always drink responsibly. Always i just wanna play that one. More time. i just want to play at one more responsibly. I've met there was a little celebrating. Going deny brat. Guess how was it. Man good good. Hey i'm entertained the show going up just wanting gotta watch gaping. Just see what he does next but thanks for having me guys good to see. It's going to be more fun about eight o'clock around here. i have. Yes oh well brad. That was a that was incredible. Race sunday you lead the most important lap that lasts latte those last several laps crazy on the last restart walk us through how you navigate yourself through that. Well you know just you try to stay in position. Those races you know. Generally there's a lot of attrition as you guys know you get a lot of wrecks Easy to kind of get yourself out of it You can't win a race in a garage Especially not really like that. And so just trying to stay in position at all times what i need to do to to be there at the end and then capitalize when accounts and then we ran to the top five a good part of the race all but a good part of the race scorza stage points in stage two and got shut out cowan. Stage one and You don't from. There is just a matter of working with the other forge and being position at the end and when the moment came to capitalize what kind of struck with good restart from the bottom lane and then being able to find a hole and capitalize on it there on the This lab here from the white flag so pretty cool to bring home number six for me. It's day for batten reuben. See him but my is also win for but he'll get his one day for sure but they're just really special day for millions important for seasons to get a win and to get locked in the playoffs. You know i wanna go. I wanna go back to a little bit earlier in the race when when you drove past joey when he was in the air. And you're on the flat. You had cleared that wreck you passed that wreck and then they show a different angle and you are sideways and backwards. You get clipped in the right. Where did that affect any anything to on the car. The way the car drove because you came down off the plan. Yeah did it affect the body any. Yeah it was just pretty good damage to the right record. Kyle and in the team patched up best they could. I think we lost a little bit of speed in the car and probably not a ton but certainly these cars. I mean they're manufactured to that the ten thousandth of an inch. And when you run another car up against disseminate move six inches et cetera. Far from being perfectly engineered hanging. So i certainly did a little bit of her to the car but it was enough wasn't enough that we couldn't overcome brand will motormouth we always try to include the fan so we have a caller and i'm sure they have some fun asking or chanter got us. Hardy was well. Hello hello hello collin. Dale how you guys doing good all right so and also brad very great to talk to you and they and from what i remember as me and my grandfather went to see you at martinsville and twenty nineteen during the s p five hundred. You did a wonderful job in that race all right. Oh okay women listen to. I mean get to the question okay. That's that's a starting get to the question. Okay cow brad. So brad my question to you is with you. Went in palo. Diga your now tied with jeff gordon. Dale earnhardt jr. What is your thoughts if you make it up to ten and utah. Hi dale earnhardt for winning the talladega the mode. Wh what will happen. what were you think. Well i don't know if anything were really. I don't think you know it would mean a lot to me. Obviously you know anytime. You can have your name on a list with earnhardt. You've you've done something right. And i got a long ways. I'm away at six. He was at ten and wins. Think about that then wins. Anywhere is a big deal within went to tel de. Who's covered by that explosion for me. But i would say that I have a chance out. This shot i'm living are try. Ford got number years after my career to capitalize. And you know it's not the most important thing. I'm right to be honest. I would much rather have another championship but it would be a a cool thing to add to that list of states. Some career accomplishments for sure abra had so just a couple a years ago And by the way six a magnificent number that a lot of us would love to be there but you were the man that everybody looked at When you were going to daytona and talladega superspeedway races. You're the one a kind of setting the stage and putting it out there. If you're going to win this race you have to be me. But then as we all have been through ran across some bad luck it seemed like every position you got in with the wrong spot. Even though you were right up front a lot of those times you said on sunday afternoon you had to stay the course with that and be aggressive and do the things dead any of that entering your mom used. Put that aside and say. I've got to go do this my way. Yeah i think dale was very hard to relax for. Years is quite frankly win. The rules package changed When the rose package changed techniques. To and i've been a little bit slower to adapt to than quite frankly i i would have liked Nancy so it's been hard for me to kind of figure that out and That doesn't mean we've had that runs of have some really good runs to be quite honest and we've had some really good runs. Were you know bad. Things happen to court. Franklin were not our fall at all. but then there's been some things have happened that you know. In retrospect i do take laying on and so You know there was a really good run of winning races on tracks. I think from two thousand twelve to two thousand seventeen and then the lol for sure from eighteen till this past weekend so hopefully. I'm back to have it figured out. I know i forgot a couple breakthroughs over the last six months and Tried to them and they showed some strong results with different moves. And now i'm just gonna copy paste until they don't work again don't change. We have another caller marvin blue. Which question brad. hi brian. how are you buddy time marvin. Hey i got a question for you. Still you're heading into kansas speedway this sunday with a lot of momentum after your win at talladega and my question to you is how do you back that up. How determined are you to get another victory this weekend at kansas. Well i think starting on the pole. Marvin is certainly very helpful. One of the things. That's interesting to me about. Kansas is the white pit road. Works the pit road. Timing line is like ten foot in front of the i pit stall so it's a pretty big advantage. I'm pretty road and kansas has been a good track for me One two races. There you know i liked to get number. Three third last fall in Maybe second third last spring so a really solid runs last year So i could see us together and Kind of taken that playoff bonus point lead out of there that would. That's a really strong goal. We haven't had a very good last three or four racist up until talladega martinsville was just an absolute disaster in a car. And you know. We lost power steering and Everything kinda fell apart and we got wrecked richmond. I felt like we were one of the best cars. Probably the best car at the end But the pit road strategy had strapped down and that was a disaster and kind of felt we gave up a win and bristow on the dirt. I'd i'd take some responsibility if i had our car. Set the wrong way. And we kind of around to eleventh and not a very strong day so i think that's raises before You know this past winter talladega. Three of them. We had really salad cars opportunities to win. And i didn't execute on it in that royce. Thanks so we need to turn that corner in. I'm looking forward to kansas and keeping that momentum from talladega going marvin ashgabat kansas. Kansas has been a good race. Track for you to wins. I think you finish Top five last two races there. When i watch a racist at kansas six out to me is the restarts. It seems like chaos. You tell us about how wild is. Restored are and how important they are kansas. When nascar first came out with five hundred fifty horsepower rules package asset was not a big fan But there are some tracks where i feel like it has done really well at in. Kansas is one of them It's really opened up the racing to multiple grooves. Better passing but restarts. All those things I it's been a strength through this rules package. I think the race ability so Kansas to me has become one of the better race tracks with these rules. That i enjoy going to now. Thank you join us buddies fun watching you. You are choosing your plates though. Man is so much fun to watch. And you're teaching. A lot of people had to do it. Six wins. i noticed. I know that wasn't on your list but enjoy. Because i can tell you there's zero here. I think zero there. You got company released so you don. I watched well. You heard me. I said how many how many you ask him. How many that's right. That was fun congrats. Oh man i appreciate it say you know looking forward to seeing you guys take over coverage here pretty soon and keep up the good work basis man all right.

You don't even know good good good. Hey buddy man. I'm doing good. How are you guys. we're doing good a great time. Hope you are is You're Once again found away at talladega to get yourself right in the hunt with a chance to win that race. Tell us about your day. Yeah i it was a really smooth day. We were able to get stage points in those first two stages get ourselves in position there with that. That green white checkered in. I did feel good coming off. Turn four to you possibly put a race winning move on brad and as we got the dog laying. It all started to come together. Litter run with the twenty. Four graduates did a good job of of not only going off and not let me set him back. But william byron and take the momentum so you only get one shot there. Vin in brad predicted what i was going to do pretty well and i watch back and i wish i had done a couple of things differently. But we had a shot at it in the straps ford mustang. So really thankful about that. And you know it's anytime you have a shot at it. It's it's a good day michael. It's been a couple of months since that big win and you just you never can say it enough or hear enough when you're daytona five hundred champion but it does bring you some more things. How's it been obviously the team. I think that it's overachieved. More than anyone else with you as the driver and everything going on there with your team. It's been awesome. I mean so much fun. You know the confidence in the momentum that we gain from that the daytona five hundred. Victories is huge in. Know all the things that come with it. You know for our partners in neo four all the people that are really working hard back in the shop for them. Being said celebrate you know just gives them that extra step and people eighty. She didn't win. You're in the shop to that extra mile to get that extra bit and you know everybody's been working so hard to grow and really over achieving all here so it's yeah it's kind of a dream come true for me. We're still we know who we are as a race team. We know we still have a lot of battles that got that. Climb but it's it's nice to have some results in to have the camaraderie that we have inside the to shop and inside. The team has been really rewarding. I wanna go back to two sunday here. I don't you take me through. And i'm going to be honest. We i got up like in the last five or six laps of segment to. I got up and change my pants three times. Because i was watching you with brad. Red pushing you and you said you had a. It was a pretty uneventful race. And i thought you were going to end up in birmingham one time going into turn three. That thing was so sideways and backwards. Take me through what it's like when somebody's pushing you like that and those things because when you can see him on tv it's big movement it's a big movement. What does that feel like. Feels like what it looks like fresh grad was giving me some good shows and you know when you get somebody locked on your bumper like the little bit of movement in the steering wheel. It'll dump over on the left rear and want to shoot to the ride or dump over on the right. We want to shoot to the last. And there's times i was literally just holding the wheel straight even though the car wasn't going straight i knew that i couldn't turn it right. Because you know you're going to slide off of that bumper and and so it's definitely intense this package in particular. You've got to be so aggressive with the push and when you do get locked on. Somebody's bumper but they're not easy to drive there dancing around like crazy as you can see. There's there's it's just hard to hold onto in my car at times was really loose but there the end you would just kind of found that timing in how hard you could push and not push too far where you get the guy so you get disconnected so michael. I have a theory about where you guys are as a team in which you're looking forward i want you to tell me from right or if i'm wrong so you're in the playoffs you know you're in the play offs daytona five hundred win so when i look at the playoffs and i look at the second round i feel like you could get through the second round of that playoffs because of the racetrax that are in that so have you guys looked at that in that fashion and do you have a plan to try to get through that first round because you got talladega and you had the role you're really good road racer and you're really good superspeedway racer. How do you get through that first round so you can take advantage of what you're so good at. Yeah for sure we we look at it the same way you know. We know that first round is going to be tough but that second round there is some opportunity for us to to really challenge in henson. You look at it as you just gotta be as prepared as possible for that first round but also to you. Is we gotta maximize stage points. We gotta get another victory so that we have a little bit of a buffer going into that first round so when we look at code and we look at road america indianapolis in daytona fourth of july. Those those aren't necessarily must winds but for us to make it around to. We need those points in. So um you know we're going to be aggressive all year to try to get as many of those points as we can knowing that that first round for sure is going to be for us. You know those tracks are probably the toughest my you talk about the success in the things that it brings obviously sponsorship dollars coming into your race team more support from the manufacturer does. Is that helping you and your team improve your program at all. The different types of tracks helps all the areas. You know i feel like daytona was what we needed as an organization to take that next level but last year at the end of the season we were building towards running in the top fifteen consistently. So it's not a complete surprise to us this year but once you have those results and you start to be able to have that momentum everything starts falling together and like you said with the manufacturers with ford's support in sim time and all the tools that we have there with partners coming onboard carparks dot com. You know all those things help our race team and that helps to performance on the racetrack and and like i said we know who we are at front row or still small. We still You know we have a big big gap to fill to those big kendrick and penske in Joe gibbs racing but we're getting pretty close every weekend in in we know that there's some areas that we still got to improve but all that support and partnerships helps us to be able to build better race cars in and have a better shot on sundays. Okay i wanna ask a question about Followed to what they'll say about. What winning brings you and listen. I grew up walking into stores and see my dad advertise an ftp and dale jarrett commercials and all of that said it was always another driver. It was never made. It was another driver. I walk in the loves and there you are a life size car. I see gas trucks fuel trucks running up and down the highway. You are everywhere now. What does that mean to you as a driver. When you walk in and you say that's me that's daytona five hundred champion. That's me and the love stop. The i'm still getting used to it. I feel awkward. It's so great to have a partner like loves right that too big brand and if you think about it just you know just being transparent. We're a small team with a big brand of fortune. Five hundred company on the on the race team and they've been with the race teams such a long time and so she. You know intricate part of you. Know who front row. Motorsports is so to being engaged in everything that they're doing in stores and on their own and all that it's it's really special in neat and i think more than anything is just. It's just a testament. The bob jenkins in you put a lot of his own money into this program so that we could get a chance at being in victory lane and it's paying off her for all of us cow cow ask you about become more well known and well see we came on showing your new commercial. Yeah oh tell us about the commercial. Was that fun doing something you enjoy to do. And is it. Is it a lot of work. Yeah i enjoyed it car. Parts dot com is the has been a great partner. And what i enjoy. The most is not everybody knows my personality. I'm kind of a silly goofy guy in general But at the racetrack. You don't see that because you're all business in and that's what it's all about. And so they let me have my you know a little bit of freedom to just have some fun with it which has been great and i enjoyed it It was a long day in a lot of takes but we had a lot of fun doing it. And i think it turned out great. Listen silly goofy gab. Bring your chair on down here and you can be on any money or anywhere anywhere. The all you gotta do is bring a chair will welcome you in here. All right sounds good. I'll take you up on land. Thanks for joining us. Good job this weekend and good luck upcoming races. Thank you guys appreciate it thank you well i mean not only is michael. Runway daytona talladega. They haven't run quite as well lately but early in the year it was. I mean every time you looked up there. He was running with with the guys. You wouldn't expect to see that that little team running. I look. I looked at and we talk about a lot. We talk about it in the bus at the racetrack. You talk about it on. Tv is momentum. That was a prime example. If you put momentum's and looked at the definition you had to put michael mcdowell and front row motorsports beset beside that especially the first part of the year because they wanted people to know. Daytona was not a fluke. We can run up from. We can compete with these guys and they did those first few weeks and that question that you had about looking ahead to the playoffs and how do you get through that first round and then my great you know that some opportunities that are out there here that are up for them to gather some Not only stage points but possibly playoff that they could carry through and have in that especially in that first round because as you said a couple of those tracks in the second lineup very well for him and he can navigate his way right on through and and become the team and driver that everybody's looking at once again after the daytona five hundred win. How cool that listen. That's not out of the realm of possibility after watching the first seven or eight years so that would be that would be an incredible statement for the sport of nascar. Did a team like that team financially. Where they're at and what they've overcome to get to where they're at to continue to move in. They've always wanted what they've always had nascar's always wanted a team like that. They're smart yes to play priorities. Yes michael mcdowell is my driver and on the smaller team. I'm going to build the best race cars. I can possibly over daytona talladega and we'll build the best possible cars i can and i'm going to lean on him and say okay. I don't know how to do anything else. This is the best we know how to do. And you you you know you both know you can't do everything right. There's no way so you have to narrow your focus and really focus on that and and for all we know that's what they're doing like you know they they gotta start and and maybe they said you know what let's throttle this part of a program back a little bit and put some more effort into this because they could make it. I'm telling you if they could find a way we see it in extremely raises all the time we haven't because limited tires we see all the time you to a race where the tires run off of it and somebody will pit and it's going to complete mess him up for the end of the race but they're going to go get a stage point. Yeah and that's exactly. That's things that michael down his team. It'd be looking at the find a way just to get a point here a point there even if it messes you up for the end of the race so what goes great. Point great point. Yeah all right. Well let's go stuff. We got ricky carmichael switching. The wheels wheels three. I dunno. i that where's that julep. Kit backless com. He he Across rising crazy. This is nuts. We know nascar's going to be in kansas. And we're gonna be watching that but check out all the other in it's happening on the networks of nbc. Indycar has double in texas. There's two wheel action as moto. Gp will be in spain for the spanish grand prix. american flat track is in atlanta. Live at four thirty saturday on track pass with an encore presentation. The next night and supercross tran crowning three new champions in three days out in salt lake city while raising us at auto races. Well this is monster energy. Ama supercross time since we've seen the to the east. This championship picture has already been shaken up christian creek as a big crash in practice. And he's not going to raise tonight colt. Get it done and win this title. He had not lose more than two points. to josiah. two main event. Joe shimoda looks over his shoulder and he's gonna get it done. The first of his career keeps the title alive. You we go four. Fifty main event can rocks and got maintained birthplace position. How donald feeling the pressure. Marvin skin wins his car. Main event of the season cooper web. The sater's second you want me to do you know i try my best out there. It's not over but obviously it's very difficult to action so excited ricky. I was trying to get into talk before. I got nothing to say after watching that. I'm speechless matt. After watching all that ricky. How about cooper web and he is is right on the cusp of winning that championship. He's been incredible all year. Yeah he's surely has and you just you just go to what he's able to do i mean he is. He is top. He'll put the screws to you and he messes with the on and off the track. And really i mean i look at. It got a little here from ken. Robson going down and you just gotta think that the pressure was mountain. All cooper coming into third place in probably making a little bit of time but nevertheless It's been a lot of the watchmen a great season. Ken robson has had a fantastic season as well. And anything can happen but Anything short of a catastrophe on cooper webs part. I think coupes got it in the bag and You know. I just really appreciate what he's been able to do. And to come back and get that number one plate back from eli tomac says a lot about cooper web. You talk about rox. He looked really good. The last couple of races may be better than web has. But you've been in this position before yourself. And so i know we all know from driving four wheel cars and of course you know that too but trying to protect the lead and not make a mistake to let someone catch up. How difficult is that in that world. Dj that's that's great. It's it's very very difficult. Another thing too. Is you guys. Know this Your spotters coming in your ear saying hey this guy. That unique feed is catch. Enter to laugh it crazy. How that pressure mounts and it's harder to hit your marks and you don't feel as relaxed and like that that that crash we saw right there from brockton. You hardly ever see that guy crash in race situations in the last two weeks. He's done that when he's had raised the race especially atlanta pretty much in the back so it's incredibly hard to do and there's only a few that are strong enough mentally to to to to rise to the occasion in those moments and when i saw him crash when i saw can rack rocks in crash again and i hate to be hard on the guy i feel like. That's you know. Our job is to tell it like it is as an analyst and he just buckled. You know i just. I just go back and i wonder you know when when you're crossing sections and he's he's seeing out of this peripheral vision cooper coming. I wondered if that played a part in it. Just like he went down in. That corner. Didn't even look like he attempted to save. It didn't look like he was davin and his foot to try to save it. I don't know man is is crazy but nevertheless Yet he has looked good does no doubt about it but doesn't like he's going to be able to close it out unfortunately ricky we. We love having collars and we have a caller. I'm sure they have a great question for you. So go ahead. Caller just is our calling man. First of all ricky gray had the code on and he won't twelve championship. And they'll jerry lewis championships. That is is my question to you guys is how does it change your life. 'cause you're three guys gonna win a championship saturday. Has it changed your life as a champion. And i'll hang up and listen. Thank you guys well. You're exactly right. We're going to be crowning three champions this weekend and it's really championship month on. Nbc and all of nbc. so a lot to a lot to be watching no doubt about it but you know i think it just gives you a a accomplishment. Feeling that you like you've worked your whole life. You sacrifice so much your parents whatever it might be no everyone's different situation however that that's what means the most in when it has when it has time to set in you you look back and reflect on what it took to get you there at least that's what it was for me You know all the sacrifices that you make as an athlete as driver as well You know what goes into it. You know how hard the crew works and it. Just it all comes back. It makes full circle. So those are the thoughts that i think about. And just it's it's just makes you feel so happy inside and like all that work and sacrifices finely-worded yeah he's a champion on these telecasts wire man right john. You are incredible really after you guys know and and i really admire what. Y'all do i really do a study. You guys and i have a lot of respect for all of y'all on that panel right there. So i take little tidbits from what i've learned from you guys and and and nothing replaces laps right. Yeah i've been working hard and doing doing my homework but at the same time when you get those reps surely helps and of course when there is a good race is certainly makes us look. It's been it's been fun. i'm gonna tell you right now. You guys need to tune in you need to watch that showdown that eastwest showdown pride on the line. These coast boys wanna show the west coast. Boys they're better and vice versa. And we got a lot of rookies. A great great. Proper rookies this season so That's that's going to be the the race to watch no doubt about it. trust me. we're watching you and learning from you to yes. We are sure. Well i appreciate it guys. You have a great show and We'll be tuned in man. So so three champions going to be honest s incredible but kansas. We don't have a lot of But you got win. Who do i have one. And you know what i'm i'll go with. Danny he's got a breakout. Gimme something give something. I'm gonna go with denny hamlin diddy hamon okay. So i'm on cross out danny because that's who. I'm sorry i'm gonna say our second. Two time winner is gonna be ryan blending. Ooh i like that. That's good ryan mountcastle. I'm going out on a limb. And i can't believe i'm saying going out on a limb. I think kevin harvick and his team. I think this week damage shown nausea statement. They need it. I gotta show. Ronnie children's was very vocal. Saying this is a very big weekend. So i'm going to kevin harvick that no good to keep down this. Yeah for sure man. So we'll be back monday. We'll find out if any of us were right.

The O'Reilly Auto Parts Pit Reporters

"From Kiro to go I this bill and you listen to the reilly auto parts pit reporters week Maitland Smith one it's Talladega this weekend where anything they start here we go history in the making the NASCAR playoffs how quickly to go Martinsville is one of those tracks he's I think he's better than he thinks he just doesn't have a lot of confidence but can you know Texas that should be the racetrack warm there been good in the mile and a half racetracks can ask you five race winless streak as you mentioned but in conversations that I had with Kyle Larson over the last couple of weeks he himself seemed very optimistic that this win was coming he she had been telling me for weeks how he felt like they had been getting a better and better they'd been bringing really fast cars to the racetracks Dover obviously he had never won there before but the auto parts better parts better prices every day now here's your host red McMillan welcome show glad to have Caitlyn Jordan hole is the first time they've been able to put a team into the round eight that is hard to believe if you think about you know the the many years obviously they've been trying to chase after a title so this is this is a they can just focus on that they can get their car set up they can start their mindset of what we need to do to be better that gives them a little bit of an advantage I think that's the key do you think that Kyle Larson was the the program's been good there Kurt one at Kentucky this year which is similar to Texas and Phoenix is a good track forms I think he'd better in that round then he gives himself credit for but now holiday but we know how unexpected that race can be but now they can just focus on the next round already start dedicating all their focus to those racetracks and I think that is really key for him because he even said it Jordan said it to open the show this was the one that I think a lot of people didn't come because they've been so long since he'd won this is not a track record saw huge success yeah seventy we've had a string of top five performances it had been maybe one of his better places just always something seem to plague him they kept him from getting Victory Lane but I felt like this said Larsen is really good at Dover this good track for him they've had speed they had a great setup I I am not surprised I'm surprised they didn't happen sooner actually but I think now Kirk Bush's come there and really helped elevate that program they have been able to close races and yeah I know Joe Gibbs racing has been really strong in the playoffs teams like who's going to beat these guys but this as Caitlyn it was a really kind of dominant performance by the forty two team because it Sou- significant not just what it does for collars and but what it does for that organization big one for their whole organization. I'm not surprised you one though I mean if you look at the status here he's been really good. He was second at Darlington third at Michigan they've had speed and chip Ganassi racing all year that he's got that win it sets up really well for him the rest of the playoffs oh it does yeah and I mean they can just sort of relax he will be the only person who's relax going into you can't get here soon enough because the Nascar Cup series scheduled he's a bad nickle it's the O.. Reilly auto parts bit reporters on the performance racing network brought to you by a riot they do but there you go kyle Larson picks up the win at Dover which was a surprise to many but not to rob but you know this is the one in you know uh-huh yes she is always nice glad to have you here and Man Kyle Larson I'd say nobody saw it coming by get a text message from our friend Rob Albright today who week on the show reminded me that he said Kyle Larson would win the race at Dover Bragging Rights and rights for him so I said well you WanNa make it to for to he said he'll take Coriolis this is kind of like her thing he's posted videos of her before I think shot gunning the beers vacation or something like that and I noticed her sort in the background and she was like getting ready with this Loyd at the Talladega this week that pick actually is going on you know we'll see how it goes we will he was ahead I admire that go to Code and she got like Oh man that's that's too bad yeah it is yeah but funny moment and it went viral everyone was talking about it on social media Jordan gets the yellow rookie strike this week gentle be kind we'll be gentle and kind of speaking for myself I will be I don't know about Huck Halo react one of the background how how much did kyle need this win I mean we talked about the long winless streak Jordan I mean this this has been a long time coming we're beginning to question you know is he going to be able to be successful NASCAR and what happens when his contract is up next year does he go back to you know back to the winter or his wife who shocked out here before impressive his dominating performance or her shot gutting the beer in victory lane the wings cars and back to sprint car racing I mean Kyle's got a lot of town we all know that but until you're winning races winning consistently and he won four races in two thousand seventeen and I'm like where's she doing and then I realized what was but that's pretty fine can I be honest my first thing was I want to know about her dry cleaning bill I felt really bad that was a nice coach he was wearing yeah people went nuts and and and rightfully so I mean you would expect one of the guys in the crew to this I don't expect you got a lot of cool points I don't see Samantha Bush shotgun stay here and you can win races and run for championship and it seems like Kyle has been pretty vocal about wanting to stay loyal to gassy and the people who gave him his first big break obviously ah yes and for those of you watching online I guess there we are there she shutting the beer and kyle president but he went winless last two years that's a big gap and you have to be winning consistently you have to be continuing to show why your people hype you as the next great driver and I think it's team of been with him for years but I think this kind of settles a lot of the Naysayers and now as we've talked about he can just focus on that next around and we know if he makes it a homestead because they're going to go after my I know this for a fact but chip Ganassi racing winning this war winning last week Kurt Busch winning at Kentucky they've got to win this year putting a driver in the Monster Energy Cup series but your point winning is everything so when you're not winning it just keeps prolonging the questions and more people start talking you know when are they going to get back to victory so there so you know I'm sure he's got all the confidence in the world right now that that he can make that happen and so I I've Kinda wondered if Kyle Larson is sort of the Joey Logano Elaine I'm sure it wasn't a war rushing for anyone than him himself you know knowing that they had good cars they had good speed it's a really strong team a lot of the guys on that knowledge he's a true racer through and through he said he felt like they got along great as teammates just a good notebook for for them to Kinda lean on so I think he has done a lot yes maybe another one might be Kevin Harvick pass champion or Keselowski whose past champion I wouldn't count Llegado yet either so he's going to have a very tough road but yeah I think he's of last season that sort was quiet all season long kind of lay in the weeds as my friend Larry Mac likes to say and then all of a sudden you know I it comes together form at just the right time or no probably not said that though I could see her let me show you how I can fear I haven't done it since college I'm out of Kyle for a long time this season Caitlyn I mean when you look at it and I think probably there was a lot more going on behind the scenes as far as Kurt I wrote a big thing on the athletic last week about Kurt Busch and what he's brought to chip Ganassi racing and caitlyn point this is what color told me was Kurt was able to explain things that were so I need to explain things and then he was able to take that and then go to his team and explain this is what's happening with my car and that made it better and Kirpan attitude to the steam fix anything on the car Kurt came in there and was able to say this this and this needs fixing on the car this is what the car's doing Kyle's able to listen to what Kurt was saying and say okay really a big thing for chip Ganassi racing piles going to have offers next year this is no doubt about he's a top town there are top teams positioning themselves right now for when he is a free agent elevating that organization than we realize yeah I actually asked Kyle Larson about that exact thing this season what Kurtz able to bring to the table and he just he told me he just has a wealthy across the board occurred has been really a tremendous leader for that team that organization and he deserves a lot of credit for what he's done you know GonNa see really hasn't contended I'd be curious to see what this does now forty two team moving forward it's going to be tough I mean he's GonNa have three drivers at homestead and to those are probably going to be gibbs cars passes he is one of the best in Miami the thing is we've been hearing that for years we have alar never makes the final four and it's over well he's he's done really well seven kilometre very good point he is kind of reminiscent of joy lagaan or Tony Stewart in two thousand eleven wherein Tony got his first win that year in the playoffs and that just lit a fire Nathan and then they're winning races left and right ignificant and when I was looking through kind of social media and things like that obviously the cruise riposting driver but the marketing people pr people everyone you could tell how impactful this win as well to the table for that group so yeah Curtis being there seems to what does that quote all ships rising tide they find themselves in the championship how big a deal has Kurt Busch been to that team I mean at the beginning of the season we were all talking about that the Kurt was out running it was signed last year to chip Ganassi racing was December Kirk came into the shop on the first day signed the contract and called the the one team together and said we are going to win races this year not if when has a decent shot or not too good so what Larson's chances what do you think are making it to homestead last week we ask you would you like to see more rural type rates like was for the organization and just kind of re energizing everybody obviously as you mentioned Kurt had one this year but this is a big deal I don't think for them to have two cars win races for the team they also brought over an engineer Jeff Curtis that was part of the championship winning team at furniture erasing with the seventy eight car which I think he has brought a lot for championship since the year Sterling Marlin was leading the championship but he got hurt and mcmurray came in and took over and actually one thousand to one the Charlotte race and the this organization has the pieces there to be really good and to do things on a high level they just have to consistently do that and that's always been the issue with them but it certainly seems and prepare your vehicle for the weather ahead during superstar battery month at O. Reilly Auto Parts with great deals on batteries and accessories plus top off with peak long-life universal pre Jason and the question is what are Larson's chances of making homestead in your choices are done deal he'll need to win in round three He Kubota that's why our side kick his bill to do it all with epic versatility and top speeds of forty miles per hour climb more so more he's had a really rough day at Dover and it's kind of a surprise who's now on the outside looking in stay with us in the semifinals that's a big thing for them to say you don't we are good organization Kyle we are championship caliber organization there's no need to go elsewhere and race or someone else like they've kind of gotten themselves in a good spot here where going into the offseason they're gonNA have a lot of momentum and then maybe sets up for Nice Big Two thousand twenty and I did hear Felix Bodices we say actually we have three raises this year Susan this is interesting almost a fifty fifty split fifty one percent said no forty-nine percent said yes when we come back some we win races this year because we're going to this is what's going to happen and you laid out a plan and then he basically you're out of reward system when they won racist and that just instilled confidence in this organization in DOT COM this biard in the performance racing network fall just a couple of reasons after he took over but I mean going to ask you is not been a serious championship contender since I now that's why I was saying when we first started the show that this why this win was so sick six antifreeze and coolant for just ten ninety nine per gallon O'Reilly auto parts better parts better prices every day limit supplies he store for details happening with the car that I wasn't kyle is terrific driver but he is the first to admit he's not yes mechanically in tune with the car he can't really explain what's going on with the car he doesn't have the go faster it's the hardworking pedal to the metal utility vehicle you've been waiting for crossover to more get behind the wheel of a Kubota said yet your short and what do I know I mean we've been big thing you're looking at the big picture championship I mean you know pros and cons of it'll be and do have to bona fide drivers there and Kurt had a horrible round one lot of bad luck was the biggest surprise that he was eliminated. Yeah I mean just bad luck me even the three words rates this is Doug Rice at prn every Monday night for another great episode of Fast All it totally totally flips everything I think forever finally cooling off just a little bit which means winter can't be far behind because summer lasted so long you know one in four batteries will fail this winter and you want to get yours tested for free kick utility vehicle to feel the difference by visiting your local Kubota Dealers WanNa hear one of our past shows visit go peoria it definitely more racetracks added to schedule at least dirt race in Cup and I would love to see them look at a Nashville or an Iowa and look at it during superstar battery month at a reilly auto parts if it needs to be replaced O'Reilly's has the superstar battery for you a rally auto parts better parts better prices Doc washburn though I'll take the million yeah that's in the bank exactly as long as the checks clear then then it did hey this week rally on a bit reporters pull it is about kyle that gracing fix with PRN's at the Track Bizet dopey are in dot com now more of the O. Reilly auto parts pit reporter well the weather Egypt here he is seven points of the bad and Ryan Blaney twenty two to the bad I mean how quickly fortunes changed over that was totally unexpect- yeah I am big swing we want and that's a huge statement is at this point time by NASCAR to say hey we're still checking the stuff man what would be your top one or two things that if you were running the show you would want to implant standings after Dover man it's a shock when you look at the four guys who right now are on the outside looking in that is Joey Logano who is we've had all year came in the first round it was terrible for them and I talked to Matt McCall coochie after Charlotte the rubble and he was just devastated I mean he just had this long look on his face but it shows that probably stressful because you go from hero to zero like you said in one week and he's on the outside looking in but I think that's what makes it so exciting because they won the author writes the checks do and the clear that's good because they when they were interviewing kyle after the race you know and I think they learned a lot okay you can still win that's fast talk right here on the performance racing network raise up in the Pacific northwest a lot of pride in where I'm from a lot of pride and where I live and because I think just nice to be able to get that world and personally I think it's better for me as as the eighty snyder was saying hey is this one of the biggest ones year Cruz like well that all star race the million dollars and I'm like this is a playoff raises just advanced you to the next round to me this is a big one dealers season being good during the regular season matters so much because it allows you to build up your at that playoff cushion that point cushion where if you have an issue you're okay and it's like eight and Lugano they're going to really track you don't think is Talladega has an opportunity track for these guys you know you hear a lot about the big one and having void the racks these guys are really good plate racers the auto parts thinking utility vehicles should do more than take you places Ashley tied for Eighth We'll William Byron Byron at this point gets Tiebreaker Clint voyeurs Ford of the bad chase Elliott seven to the bad he's the guy I've talked to and Ryan Blaney that is a big surprise to me sort of his whole season has been a little bit of a head scratcher I know he's had a bright moments but the fact that he hasn't gotten a victory or any thanks Brad Keselowski Joey Logano they they have what eight wins fine mamie maybe more so he has some good teammates to obviously work with out at finishes which they absolutely need or even a win yeah I mean I couldn't agree more that that was a big shakeup to your point two you know two weeks ago at the Rosval it was this incredible dude points to help improve that cushion because he knew Talladega is arguably his least favourite racetrack to go to so they're in good shape but yeah I mean you mentioned the three points to the good they although they had an opportunity to win the race we saw what happened on pit road that likely cost him that but he did a great job of doing what he needed a lot of ways and we also had guys that look like they had promised to Denny Hamlin had some issues Brad Kozlowski thought he had an engine issue Yeah it up the standings the only thing I can say is for Blaney Elliott won there in the spring Lagaan's one there multiple times blaney doesn't have a win there yet but he's always up front always leading laps so this is a good opportunity for them to at least go get good competitor. I think that shows on on Sundays to he's roller coaster and he gets overthrew Hosni he really doesn't get going but they keep supporting and also last year you know he was a kid God had a bad race last week but you know what he's still technically you know doesn't have a deficit right now and he's in a lot better shape than blaney are Byron Blaney doesn't have a win so nothing like that and then just the way these these playoffs have have gone for him is rather surprising but we know that the fords and Penske Talladega is one of their best racetrack be done blinis a good plate racer the fact that he's got his teammates who can help them out a little bit some other four drivers yeah I think he's going to be a good spot to get that win Yeah Joey Logano obviously occas which is we need to get to the front we need to stay at the front and we need to figure out a win this race Brad Kozlowski did it in two thousand fourteen he went in there outside the playoffs needed to win got that winning advance again so we'll see I think there's no better place for penske than Talladega to get the ship righted if you will I mean you guys you talked about Caitlin the fact that I mean we're talking about the regular season and how you accrue all these points and everything and it helps he used all his up he cannot have one more bat race he has more race he's done but these are two really good racetracks in Alabama to hopefully help get that win and move on and the Nice thing too if you're is you're all in at this point yeah you can still maybe advanced but via point it's going to be really tough in a must win mode almost at this point and going to tell Dagan a must win mode I think alleviate a lot of the stress it's like you're not having to worry about your tracks decision and worrying about this and that you just go there with one singular now year ago this was the round we really started to see Joey Logano hit some strides in this is where I think we really saw that path to his first championship coming to light but to your point you lose your way back to what got you there and you're sacrificing maybe running up front and getting stage points which is again to his point where this all lies if you're not so he's got an opportunity here for him but they haven't had the same level of speed that they did at the beginning of the year they've been really inconsistent they've been good at times they finished second the brick yard talking to some of the penske crew chiefs just within the last couple of weeks they kind of said that the summer wasn't experimentation a time type period for them in preparation for the playoffs every day we walk me back the Aurora auto parts pit reporters along with Jordan Bianchi from the athletic and Caitlyn Vinci from F S One mcmullan glad to have you with us ns you look at the player redemption race for Chase Elliott after hitting the wall and then going on to win the race and then I just think this would this format is so volatile for for teams and it must be it does if you're good during the regular season gives you a good opportunity and I think that this underscores the fact yeah when I look at that playoff picture right now obviously I'm Martin strikes junior he's sixty I feel like they they've been very inconsistent obviously what happened last week at Dover was not an ideal situation at all for that team before the race even started they're going to the garage batted the head when you talk about from hero zero in like one week he's the guy who believe in Charlotte everybody's going Oh he's rolling man he he's GonNa roll right through the champion they're worse every time he's ever been there now we know the Hendrick motorsports is typically strong at the super speedways obviously as you mentioned it was the site of Chase Elliott's first win this year Right at the cut line and I heard his quote after the race he said I don't think I'm in a must win but I'm in a must do good yeah that is the season it's gone for him the roller coaster it's great for us we get the cover story lines at sexual teams that sucks the crew chiefs and the drivers And you know it it does underscore the fact that you have to be alleviate that stress from you and I said joy on right now yeah he had a bad race last week and he's right now he's technically outside of the the cutoff but still he's in a really good spot right now and the youth summer for kind of experimentation to me it's all well and good but is there a danger that when you start experimenting they have made it a point of we don't yeah we would like to get good finishes but the end of the day we wanNA leave there with as many points as possible and they have sacrificed many times over tracks position and finished had a bit with checking out on the road courses especially the strategy plain out which it will be interesting to see what the crew chiefs do at a place like Talladega because you know some people want to hang back act to try and avoid the Malay but then once again you're sacrificing being upfront at the end of those stages to collect a point so I'm glad I'm gonNA crew chief to make the choices so but yeah he's in a tough he could be tough spot William Byron might be the one that will be on the outside looking in leaving interesting he finished second July Daytona he's he's run really the thing you can no longer throwaway races during the regular season anymore there was a time when Jimmy Johnson winning championships Chad Canal team will look and say you know what we can play around here a little bit I look at those guys that he's racing against for the last spot I would take him over the field yeah go ahead because William Byron is right above him which when I looked at his stats he's been twentieth we don't need this race we're looking at the playoffs we're gonNA try some different parts and pieces and setups whatnot you can't do that anymore because Caitlin set points mean everything and you need those that's great and they they looked good at the roble lead WanNa stage there let a lot of laps but they're not finishing well they're not necessarily running consistently well that's a little worrisome for me it is and going to get stage points and that is help them be in the position they are now going to be interesting to see how that philosophy changes a little bit if they need to and he's a driver Byron who gets in no we need to have a good I think clean solid race decent he'll be like a top ten I think I think even if they leave their without top twenty they're going to be a really good spot especially considering other I need to see how this unfolds for them I am too and I think they asked any Hamlin that exact thing Kinda what his plan was going to be you know once he got to Talladega he's like well we don't really know we just focusing on kind of the races at hand you miss out on collecting those points and getting that cushion yeah I mean I talked to a for peace around the last week I talked to a bunch of crew chiefs who are in the playoffs and they also the points you need those stage points you need those playoff points you need everything you can get to position yourself in the playoffs because you're going to have a bad race and when you had those bad races you want to have those points in the bank rain night one snores any other can't sleep seems like there's no end to but now there's a quick and easy to use solution that point so I don't know if they're capable of winning right now but if he keeps knocking all these good finishes manny round of eight maybe right yeah you'd never know and I mean yes I recall seeing that through the messages and that's that's my strategy I am very curious to see how this plays out all right now Denny Hamlin ended up at Dover upset with Joy Llegado because he felt like he was raised too hard a natural solution snore stop try it risk-free today snore stop was created and tested by a team of physicians at has been helping couple sleep for over people are probably GonNa have bad days just WANNA keep that car clean I think if you're those guys I'm thinking I don't care about stage points I'm staying far in the back I'm running together and I'm GonNa pick my in two thousand sixteen th the Joe Gibbs racing drivers went to Talladega and we saw Kabua's Martin Arm cobblers Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth run the back of the past they didn't need that so I look at the standing justified in racing him hard thinking I can pick up one or two more points we'll talk about that when we come back is happening to you is now cowboys Martin tricks junior and any hamlet or two three and four right now one two three one two and three but if you look at the win putting Kyle Larson sprayer tablets call right now for your risk-free trial eight hundred nine eight four own nine six five eight hundred nine eight four nine six here for the drivers had personalities of grassroots raising each week odd prn's at the track we cover the short tracks dirt tracks ledges at country music this weekend on racing country classics yet your straight line racing news with the Iranians nitro notes presented by Wicks filters visit go prn dot com now more of the races he just hasn't finished well he's gotten caught a lot of racks and everything but the interesting thing with that with that team is how Chad canals the job Chad can also has done this year in going after stage points would Llegado was twenty something Laos down but I wanna ask you guys when you look at the standings right now was the Gano pip reporters that evolvement this is the performance racing network erasing from the world about Lukoil Series All Star Circuit of Champions Usak car store past ultimate super late model series fasttrack naismith power and more that's PRN's at the track every week on broadcast radio the free prn APP and I tunes. It's Kathy Martin del Paul Shad on z Max racing country classes I go back a long time listening to Charlie Pride I grew up four so they're in a really good spot they don't need a great finish at Talladega what's their strategy they don't need to go out there for stays point they just finished twenty two they weren't the back how do you approach that I'm very five eight hundred nine eight four nine six five that's eight hundred nine eight four zero nine sixty five we've got more of the O.. Reilly auto per twenty years it is the number one selling anti snoring medicine in US snore stop sprays or tablets are now available nationwide all you have to do is call uh matters so I don't have an issue with what Joel Garner did we all know what kind of a competitor driver twenty two is he is not out there to make friends and he doesn't care zero when it comes to how many you know what are two points could make a difference for him by the time they leave Kansas Right Caitlyn it happens every point matters and you look at Dover and how volatile that race was we had people falling out mechanical problems all sorts of issues one guy falls out above them all of a sudden the been about gone all right now is basically even with William Byron Eighth and ninth right there so Lugano technically on the outside at this point it's time to try snorts and make every night a better night for both don't late tries nor stop the number one selling anti snoring medicine in the US uh-huh maybe before the race was overpass more guys pick up a few points hamlets basically like really come on but Lugano's right now Z.. Any hamlet got upset with Llegado for race them so hard when Lagaan was twenty something laps down Lugano Justification was look we felt like we had an opportunity can happen and it usually does Jordan Bianchi from the athletic kyle one on Sunday snapping two year winless streak that's great for him by as Sunday showed two thousand twenty one I'm going to be aggressive if you want to be aggressive with me that's fine but at the end of the day I'm not GonNa Complain about it I don't want you to either yeah I wasn't surprised to see that joy on I mean that's kind of the racer we've grown accustomed and always does and we when we saw even the cutoff of her for the first round you're watching it it's moving point-by-point Newman's in then he's out enrolls in that he's out I mean every single point reilly auto parts paid reporters at welcome back long Caitlyn Vinci from F S One and Jordan Bianchi from the athletic glad to have you with us all right we were talking in the last set appreciate that that that is his competitive nature and again I mean he's out there to win he's out there to get the best finish possible why should he lay back even if he's twenty laps down picks up one point and guess what that one point right now means a whole world of him I have no problem with it Lugano is where he is now he's a champion he's a multi race winner because he's alleged sippy right below Memphis I saw saying in clubs in red survived and Red Foley came there for a show to song on the show us tons of racer and frankly he doesn't give a fig about anybody else there because that's and he is willing to accept the repercussions he's wanting yeah that's the thing is he has a history with Joe Gibbs racing which plays a part in this as well but you go back to last year in the first round tiebreakers because you know Jimmy Johnson colors and Eric Merola thirteen laps to go sure then you could pull to the garage area and get roundly criticized like Kyle Busch was the week before so long as you don't go the wrong way up that road still in playoff hunt it's not like he's a lap car that's not even in the hunt for a title he still is no if he got up the next closest guy is fifteen laps ahead of you and there's one that would come to mind for me is Ross chastain now obviously isn't one yet in the playoffs but in terms of the point position he's in a really good spot I just really enjoy do you try to figure out a way around it and I just don't see there wasn't a path for Nascar to correct this is unfortunate it's unfair and finger and solder but what do you do like what since Vegas it'll long brain almost a month it's a rather unusual schedule I feel like I've always kinda criticized it a little bit just because that's GonNa be fun to watch this at the start of the semi finals for those that have been keeping track of the Cup sir you got six guys left in this at the start of the semi finals three raises and they will and you mentioned Austin Hill he's got two wins last four races this is the guy who might sneak his way in there this is interesting see and he's another guy to WHO's very aggressive you got three drivers there who don't care the Johnny solder who we all identified as possibly one of the most legitimate contenders for the title in Miami he's I granted fingers out and it's just it's him as a competitor of love watching when he's been able to do so far this season I expect in this round we we see him rise to the top I agree I think Ross is one of those guys that races break maybe came at a good time for them to sort of reset regroup and really focus ahead on this this round of racetracks but I am very grateful we're back hard to believe everything that transpired on that side of things to it is and it it seems unfair I agree with what Brad Keselowski said too is when you go to these common engines or SPEC engine I two things and Sorta lay this out to the fans because it it's not acceptable I it's a very unusual set of circumstances obviously the the fact at the C. when this percolates and they kind of bought heads a little bit they haven't really had those moments on the racetrack depend a couple maybe but I really feel like this building to homestead where these guys are going to be really fast the hard he asked no quarter he gives no quarter afraid of that and I think there's kind of a budding rivalry with him Brett MOFFITT right now and I think that's kind of bubbling a little bit and I'm really interested that doesn't that isn't equally unfair to everyone else so I think at the end of the day just Kinda gotTa Shrug your shoulders and say it sucks we're GONNA try to make it better but there's nothing we can do yeah and I hate that sort of has overshoot oh you do have these big big breaks in the middle of the play offs and our most recent winner was Austin Hill obviously a Las Vegas and right after he won we had him on the show and I said I was like Elliott against virtually every point matters and literally does yeah all right let's talk about really really quickly the trucks and you'll be out Caitlin with the trucks this week at Talladega it's been if you WanNa Call Matt and you have a part failure breakdown in the process of building these engines you're going to have things like this and I think as Nascar shifting in this direction you're GonNa see the cup side of the next few years this is going to be I think more common and in now Nascar has to address it is you know you just shrug your shoulders and say sorry bad break and you move forward and it is what it is our a happy about this break he's like not really because we are one of the teams with momentum and so you WanNa just kinda continue on with that where some of the other teams who are maybe in kind of precarious situation right now though innate to drivers will be in the final four so you got Talladega Martinsville Phoenix and then the final four and you guys talked about moth at one two of the three the engine blew up that is that is a whole other beast that we've been talking about it all week how we're going to approach it on the broadcast Addo you know some of the other storylines in break yeah because you've had a long break because there are a lot of great stories that have gone on throughout the course of the season in the truck series races in the first round of the playoffs and Ross chastain is the guy who was so red hot going in I think everybody expected that he would be the overwhelming favourite but all of a sudden it seems like it's kind of taken that over Caitlin yeah and you know he has obviously that experience as a past champion and talking with him to recently I think things between him and his crew chief Gerry Baxter really and he's never even raced a Talladega truck so I mean he is that practice time is going to be really valuable obviously for him trying to learn his way around a super run-ins in the past with Jani solder and granted finger those two are now eliminated so I would be curious like if he and I asked him when he was in for race other Gift Card after mail-in rebate plus great deals on jumper cables battery chargers and more O'Reilly auto parts better parts better prices every day limits apply see store concerned that this could come back around on you now that they don't have anything to lose and he said he actually had a conversation with Johnny Sauter in Las Vegas and kind of tried to smooth things over I think autoparts pit reporters in a moment this is p. r. in the Forman's raising network kind of jolting came together at just the right time it's GonNa be interesting I think maybe two for me one of the biggest prizes was young Tyler acre making his way on through that life of your vehicle at Cemex Micro Louver into the fuel oil where it uses the fluids to reach internal parks as it soaks into battle Zemach disperses all right we'll see how it plays out can be fun to watch metallica this week kind of

Loud presented by outback steakhouse comes your way after the racing at bristol motor speedway before the final off weekend of the year for the cup series as finnity series heads up to road america truck series series continues their playoff run in canada at canadian tire motorsport park where everything always seemed to go crazy great crowd at bristol denny <unk> handling wins for the fourth time this year joe gibbs racing has won twelve of the twenty four races tyler rettig despite a setback at the beginning because he couldn't get through tech comes back to win community series race in defending champ moffitt wins in the truck series nascar everything they could penalize the two expanded car every capitalize it yeah during the racy penalized himself by spinning out after the first race. <hes> david almost slew goliath on saturday. Wait wait wait. Yeah exactly were yes because that would have been the place would have come undone had been able to capture that again with his week they they announced over at levine family racing that matt debate and a will not come back. Everybody kind of knows why what's going on over there. That's associated with joe gibbs racing. We feel that they're gonna a stick. One of their extra drivers they have one of extra. They're going to have to where they have actually have different yeah so they're going to stick one of the drive and stick them over there. We feel that's that's what's gonna happen much like the association when they had with what the seventy eight car that had associations with levine family and so mad has to go somewhere david ragan announces his his retirement <hes> not much happening. Not there was a little small aviation event over in bristol <hes> definitely gonna talk about which thankfully everybody walked away and and then we had bristol bristol lived up to its name we saw people mad on thursday <hes> which means it's exactly we saw people mad on friday <hes> good show oh and then unusually enough. Nobody was really mad on saturday but it didn't mean the racing wasn't fantastic the p._j. One we talked about it all weekend long. There was some talk about the high lane being affected or adjusted or the track manipulate or whatever but the track played out exactly the way we thought it we hope it to multiple bylanes. There was no distinct advantage bottom or top for all three races all night long and that was really good. The top really didn't work that much. <hes> throughout the weekend came mm along a little bit in the cup series but not in the trucker xfinity series. Nobody really wanted to go up there and that's a another story. We'll talk a little bit more about as we go on but then he hamlin as we said wins for the fourth time this season he goes to victory lane and talks about how this relates to his previous close call with a championship nine years ago when he won in two two thousand twelve also won four races that season. I've learned so much in the last nine years. <hes> when it comes down to it i remember just the whole phoenix debacle and i think that i would be better suited to headed. Did you know it adversity <hes> the week before and whatnot i mean yes essentially if we don't miscalculate fuel mileage and run out of fuel or something like that at phoenix so yeah we got starter engines and there is no pressure at homestead but that race turned on its head pretty pretty quickly for us and and <hes> but i just made i never got over. It was like you know i just never forgave myself or anyone for you know not not not stopping on their throat when we had the chance to so it was <hes> that was tough and then you know at homestead second guessing myself. I remember burn qualifying them. Watching on the high line. I had never i hadn't even run the highline. The entire practice i see someone run fast occupied and i'm like all that i've got to do that. I go up there and i'll call like thirtieth in news terrible and so just that was just immaturity and really letting the moment you kinda get get the best and not understanding that if you just do yourself and you focus on what you can do good. You're going to have better results so certainly i would like that opportunity back in the closest. We've had two. It's two thousand fourteen. We're we're leading the race nine laps to go at homestead. We're on the final four and dan somebody five laps down wrecks and so <hes> that kevin hart came took tires and and pass and that was his championship so we've a lot of people one at my expense and so i'm gonna cash in. If i get that opportunity again you stop learning you stop living is. Is this the best denny hamlin we've seen so far. It absolutely is a consistency of jogi racing. Every one of their cars is running really good but entering he he wants to beat himself up over second guessing thing if we go back twenty five years ago dale earnhardt and mark martin or running for a championship <hes> rosh racing and yates racing get together and they go test west with a six car and a twenty eight car and they second guess themselves so much they didn't run their own car and they ran a robert yates racing car dale taylor and hart wins the championship so it's not the first time a driver or a team has been caught second guessing themselves but now what any has is the maturity and experience of realizing exactly what he said just do your thing. We all have a fingerprint man use it. Its your fingerprint. It's your d._n._a. Do what you do and that's exactly what he's doing. So that's what what makes him way more dangerous now because he has the performance he has the maturity he has everything he needs based on his past mistakes not to make those again all right. We got a big show coming up for you here. On out loud we will continue to talk about what happened at bristol and what we think might happen at road america and it canadian tire motorsport park this weekend. You can guess what's going to happen in candidate because it happened the last few years a no blooming onion no free one anyway because kevin harvick had a mechanical issue finishes last but go by anyway. Tell them run out. Loud set you however later on we will be telling you how you can win. A set of free hercules tires a month and you could be a winner also natalie decorous here.

This is our sport. This is our house out. Loud presented by outback steakhouse is back with you and join on the set now by natalie decker from across the racing running. Almost a full schedule in the gander outdoor truck series bristol was crazy. Everybody knew it was gonna be a crazy race but you had an especially crazy race. What in the world was going on at bristol everybody. It seemed like nobody wanted to go up high and so it was awfully crowded crowded at the bottom yeah all day. Practice race was always on the bottom. We've talked about it before. The race on. The driver's thought that we would even go up there. It was a crazy race and but it's bristol. It's gonna be crazy. The only time i've ever seen a truck wrecked by the pushkar what happened what in the world went wrong. Tell us what happened is because because that was the oddest thing i've seen so i my transmission wasn't working <hes> after the to like push me into that i don't know what he's doing but <hes> i put it in reverse and i was working reverse but then it won't go like when i was in neutral or first gear like wouldn't it just was stuck so i told him i was like we push me back to the garage and i think he thought i meant like push start me and i tried to turn back to the garage and we're going like eighty miles an hour not good if you being pushed by truck in two thousand nineteen has been the first full essentially full season for the gander outdoor truck series and i think you would agree coming out of a cannon arca orca series. It's been challenging. Those trucks are way different than cain in arca and that's why the steps occur what we've raised so many different race tracks. What's the one thing that's been the most difficult the one thing <hes> the drivers are really crazy. I don't think i like the one of the things we hear as we go because we've been fortunate to have drivers go from arcane and truck doc expanding and a cup every time you transition from one series to the next and you think you're driving really hard in that one series and then you go to the next series. It's the level of intensity that picks up. Do you find that to be the case as well going from canaan slash orca to the trucks yeah no matter when i would move up rather it was when i was racing soup relates before i was an arca every time he moved up it was the vehicle was different and then there was more competition and and harder competition each time move kind of like school grades. Get harder as you go through and right yeah so as you've moved through the season now. Let's let's blitz start with this. You're not going to be running the truck in canada. What are you going to be doing in rhode america transam race. Nothing xfinity raised run any of those just before the transam cars. I have last year and i did one already this year. <hes> i really enjoy it. I really enjoy road racing. I wish i was going to be in canada but that was never on. Our schedule will <hes> but i'm really excited wisconsin's my home state team. I raised four <hes> in the trans am series. He's been a good friend of my dad's for years and has raised with my dad in the past so it's a really fun team to race with and we just got done testing. The dafter bristol went really well do that in transam unlike nascar practice whenever you want yeah so whose team is it. They motor sports yeah. That's going to be fun. That's i love going to road america. That is such a cool track but under caution. A lap takes like three days. I never get back to the start finish line yeah. It's a long track ways around. Had you been here before before the test <hes> yeah. I actually raise the <unk> a couple years ago. Oh my first time in arkansas and then i also already have done a transam race there with your affiliation with <hes> d._d._r. And toyota a lot of those guys have access to the toyota sim zim. Is that something you do on a regular basis because you're running you've gone. I mean relatively quickly from cannon arca transam. Do you run a lot of sim style programs for training thing or is it really just hands on yeah. We try to go there as much as we can and <hes> if i'm going to a new track where they're practicing that new track in does help. It's really cool. I wish i could explain it in aviation. We rely on simulators because there's so many things we can do in the box that you would never ever do in the airplane. Do you find yourself either without a sim availability running i racing or are you an eraser at i have done a little bit of i racing but once i was on the tortoise as like yeah even though it's as real as it is. It's still a game up gotcha so do you find yourself after a assim session and then you go to this track that you have been to before going whoa this is different than i thought <hes> well the same it really helps because you see your surroundings things and you come up with marks of where you need to turn it really accurate. It's so accurate yeah so it really does help with that when you're in the same. It really does feel like you're at that track back now. Let's talk about something that kinda got famous for you this year the hatful. I think it was kentucky. Tell the folks what happened there and what happened with the hat because that thing blew up on social media you were you. Were like an overnight celebrity after that. What happened on those. That was pretty funny funny. You're right correct me three times for no reason. I don't know why no history or anything. I never even knew him until i was racing. Refresh who we're talking talking about expensive. Okay okay yeah so this time. I don't know what he was thinking like. He was in front of me and going into turn one any like up to clear himself and he wasn't clear silverlake. He right reared himself and i would have been fine. If <hes> the number three didn't get into meet a push me more to him so so i think like we would have been fine and could've kept racing <hes> but i was just like what were you thinking sponsor like. That's what i told him and he just said oh i don't know and so i just got so angry with them. I was like this is the third time spencer so. I flipped his hat off his head. I couldn't do anything if i hit him in the hat up and made it a celebrity put it on his car or something something on the way home yeah now. I still don't talk to them. We have five races left that you're going to run vegas talladega martinsville phoenix and homestead the only two tracks you could remotely share the same are vegas and homestead. Maybe in their different kinda different yeah. That's really barely yeah yeah so of the five. What do you look forward to the most and what's the most challenging <hes>. I'm really looking forward to talladega. I love my first time on on a superspeedway absolutely fall in love with it so i'm really looking forward to that but vegas is the next up and coming right so that's the one i'm looking forward to the most. We've already been there at the beginning beginning. This season and i really enjoyed it. I'm pretty sure that was my best friend. I had and i'm really excited back. Who vegas thanks right. What can go wrong and everything that happens in vegas. Stays is in vegas now as you move through the rest of the season. I'm not sure if you're kidding or not but you said you don't think you're really friends with any of the guys who who do you lean on. Who do you get <hes> advice from because most young drivers when they come up they find that one person who's willing to help them a little bit and talk to them. Who's who's some people like that for you. Well david david dylan's our team owner and a lean on him a lot to just because he has a son racing so every once in a while. I'll text his son as well <hes> <hes> teammates. I definitely lean on teammates but i've to go to a rookie meeting. Every single weekend and brett moffitt comes to those working meetings and takes us around the track and not really helps as well yeah. He's a defending champion and he won this pastime bristol so he knows a thing or two about getting around all the try. Your best finish has really are on the mile and a half with atlanta's not bad vegas not bad charlotte charlotte a little bit hugh but chicago outlawed of your mile and a half's vegas will look if i were pushing a bed on vegas looks really promising yeah and that was the thing last posture that i struggled with was mile and a half so this year when i signed with d._d._r. Told david i some my goal is to love mile and a half and right. Now i do so okay so what's ahead for you. You mentioned the transam race and you're gonna finish most of the truck racist for the rest of the season. What's ahead for you otherwise. Are you doing any other racing. Have have you looked next year yet. What's ahead <hes>. We haven't really looked at next year yet but i have a couple transam racism doing this year road america <hes> <hes> daytona will probably be going there as well and i went there last year. That was amazing yeah twenty four hours now. I weigh yeah. That's a bucket list. Item sure it's really cool. Even if you just get to go see it and don't race. It's really fun time as well well natalie we appreciate you coming by good luck in the transam race at road america and and we'll keep an eye on you in the truck series for the rest of the year there you go natalie decker from d._d._r. Closley raising a quick time out. We'll come back and start looking ahead at those races at road america and also canadian tire motorsport park plus.

Dyke nodded its head over to affect dot com and place your order because affect delivery is here outback steakhouse causey rules discovery viability varies livery judge my applying m._r. out loud presented by outback steakhouse snow free blooming onion this week because kevin harvick didn't get a top ten finish but stay tuned. We're going to tell you how you can win. Some free hercules tires are giving away one set every month. Joy how you can win some of those coming up a little bit later in the program we've mentioned bristol and denny hamlin getting his fourth win of the season tying his teammates martin martin directs junior and kyle busch however the fans everybody watching everybody enjoying the race gravitated more toward matt benedito and with good reason day it announced that he would not be back with levine family racing for next year and you touched on it in the beginning of the show looks like <hes> looks like <hes> joe gibbs has other plans planned for that ride and in the economics or the sport being what they are however that didn't dampen what happened. He ran a great race led more laps than ever had his best career finish. Our hannah hannah newhouse from marin was working at bristol motor speedway for colossus the big screen t._v. and had a chance to talk with matt after the race and you just got a check out this fan reaction. It's phenomenal nominal matt venedetto. I think that says it all right there. You guys you can hear the crowd right now roaring for him. I think everyone here on your side. You had everyone on social media on your side. What are the emotions with such a close run there in light of everything's news lots of emotion for the driver. That's the support. That driver like this needs right. Now you guys you drove it. We'll give you a minute here awesome. I i mean talk me through tonight's race. You put performance that shows you belong in one of these cars. That was crazy race. It's i'm so sad. We didn't win in but also thankful to have these guys given us opportunity. That's <hes> that's amazing. I was a great run. I got tight at the end and i tried everything thing. I could support means more than they know. It's been a hard week my wife. I'm so thankful for her. Support me and i that means. They know my fans. I really appreciate it's been hard week and i'm not done. I'm i'm here to win the cup series. I'm gonna win in the cup series. It's not gonna change and somebody will be. I'm thankful for these guys on his team so i want everybody to be thankful for the ninety five team but i'm i'm not goanywhere. Somebody is going to pick me up next year and they'll be glad they did a windfarm. That's why i want to do and thank you. Events emission comes home second. Let's give it one more time. 'fore madman coming home tonight at bristol and a new house talking with edito that crowd reaction was phenomenal imagined you had already come down off the roof by then. We were on the roof during the part of the interview. We got to hear it again. A great crowd at bristol huge support matt's been there ten times and this is one of the first years he's been in regularly funded team right. <hes> we talk about don't say lower budget but lower funded teams that b._k. Racing using his previous best finish was a sixth frame that set the world but what's amazing at bristol when you talk about who is racing with and for and against he's got so many lead lap finish. Is there that bristol and matt di benedetto kind of go together like you know ketchup and mustard butter and jelly exactly so he did a really good job obviously the emotion nair because he understands the importance and how close it was but there's also that side store the fact that says last time at bristol four levine family racing and and again again. I think it's we're going to talk about it for a little while. Somebody somebody he will be cup. Racing <hes> or at a high level expanded team next year without a doubt the interesting thing and i'm sure you i saw a lot of it. The social media where bob levine was taking the time to answer folks who were saying. Why are you doing this. You should keep that guy. It's just it's a it's a different era right now. In the sport than the olden days when someone could put on a good show showy wasn't gonna tear up equipment and earn himself a cup ride. There are a lot more variables involved these days. I sent a tweet out earlier <hes> referencing this general but it's such a business this racing thing is such a business that we no longer can simply just put in a one of our a friend. That's a really good race car driver. We have to go where the manufacturer we're. The sponsor worthy owner can get support for that driver to be in that race car. It's expensive succinctly right and simply put if you put a value if if a stock if if i'm gonna rant pulling him out of my hat if a christopher bell was a stock doc and matt was a stock the value of christopher bell at toyota and joe gibbs simply higher then that it doesn't mean matt's low it just means at one driver avarice higher they have more invested in realistically this is first the first year for l. l. afar levine family racing and the toyota relationship where they have started to groom whom matt if you will and they've taken the whole organization has taken a step up because of that support and affiliation so now bob levine has to make a decision he wants his this company to grow while the only way can grow with more money the only way he can get more money is to put a higher stocked driver that has a better association with companies like toyota and companies like joe gibbs racing so it's a business decision to take care of his own company to simply replace the driver. It's it's got nothing negative about met about matt nothing negative if they could open up another team they would but it's really about business and being and he said eh they have looked at that. Yes and that's and that's really the only option they would have for matt and again small percentage chance that might happen but it's realistically just about businessman businessman. It's all it is. We see multipple. Sports were guys minute a football team forever and they have to get rid of them because his salary becomes too much. It's a business. It's got nothing you do a personal decision. It's really just about business supposing he wins one of these next few races and makes it into the playoffs. That doesn't necessarily change the dynamic that we just mentioned mentioned however it would likely be huge for a matter benedetto. It'd be huge for l. Afars well then that's and that's one of the things that matt still has some good race tracks to go to. They have fantastic cars. Let's kit and again. We seem to you know one of the things danny made mention of the fact that he felt bad not only for matt but his ex crew achieved is over there mike wheeler-dealer connection. He feels so mac mike wheeler has one with denny hamlin. He's a winning crew chief and now it's just a matter of bringing that up to that level of that and we saw this very very close as we can all right putting a bow on the cup series from this past weekend a little change around the bubble area ryan newman daniel suarez or now and dan ryan newman fourteen points to good daniel suarez just two points to the good on the outside looking in clint boyer two points back jimmy johnson now twenty six points back. He says he feels like the team is making progress but things keep jumping up and binding them to keep them from having good finishes. Can the seven-time champion make the playoffs. We've got some. I'm good tracks coming up for him. Darlington being one of them and now that that's all they can do is look forward to the next race. They have had good performance but bad luck they got into that wreck <hes> <hes> late and bristol their performance week before when jimmy hit the wall on his own and he took credit for that but they have to be able to assume the pressure that's on them for just a handful handful erases left to get those points because it's going to be hard to simply outrun you can outrun one person <hes> okay but now he asked out run clint boyer daniels whereas and eric jones and he's guys are all right there between fourteenth eighteenth and points and now you're looking at more and more teams. You're going to have to outrun and those are really good teams. You gotta count on multiple people in front of you having issues instead of just just one year having some issues all right. That's a bow on the cup series for the week because they'll be off this coming weekend. Heading to wrote america's we were just discussing a little bit ago and canadian tire motorsport sport park for the trucks playoff race number two in canada for the trucks brett moffitt comes out. The defending champ with a different team wins anyway and he is now on top as they had to canada where on that last lap. You don't necessarily want to be the leader. Do you know it's one of those corners that realistically everybody just safely assume that if you're running second second the first guy plays the first place guys going to get pushed out of the way down so much to make that last turn that if somebody's in the same zipcode they're going to get to your bump. You simply just drive it in way deeper. If if the second place car drove into the corner at the same rate that he normally would he'd never make the corner right like that first place guy allows you eight and knock him out of the way and slow you down to michael here drove in that fast he would just say exactly right but it's the whole eight tires is better than four mentality <hes> and we've seen some really good last lap last corner coming to the checkered flag and again one of the best from cole custer guys in an giang hundred that was fantastic. Syndrich had a big win ear and i think there's only been one race there. That hasn't had some high drama at the end and it's one of the tracks when i talk about we mentioned road course racing. We gotta have more road courses. We need more like watkins glen where it's a racy track and that canada tire motorsports park does put that race on and i i would love to see the cup cars go north of the border and add that to our schedule somehow. It'd be fun for sure. Brett moffitt leads the truck standings ross chastain in second about fifteen sixteen points back. You get down toward the bubble area. Grant rent insinger in four thirteen points to the good matt craft and fifth also thirteen points to the good johnny solder the bubble guy only six guys advanced to the next round out of the eight he there's three points to the good just behind him austin hill three points out tyler ankara the rookie. The only rookie in the playoff field in the truck series thirteen points out still plenty of time for those guys to make it up. You've got canadian tire motorsport park and las vegas motor speedway coming up. I'm not really sure if i'm more surprised at niece motor sports and ross chastain stains level of performance being up here more matt craft and johnny solder is being down here. I keep waiting for that to flip. 'cause i have no idea how ross and niece <unk> are out performing with where they get their trucks because it has g._m. S but it's right i get. There's no doubt but it's simply they're not. It's not their trucks right so you know they're competing against equal trucks and they're not doing a very good job that those guys over geometric getting outrun even though brett moffitt one this weekend so i keep waiting for the four sport guys who've been a class of the truck series for a long time. They got matt craft and they got johnny solder. They're going to elevate some time and i think you still going to see them in a final four. If i were picking from the list yeah yeah it's gonna be fun to watch quickly as we had <hes> we'll we'll catch a little bit of this on the backside but the series now heading to road america back to a road course it was road course road road course often syndrich austin cedric and then tyler read it comes through and wins at bristol can austin syndrich make three in a row at three straight road courses. I don't know how you'd put him. I'm not at the top of the to list top of the top three. You're going to have christopher bell there and you're going to have austin syndrich and then who else is gonna fill in that third spot awesome syndrich drake right now to watch him run at the level that he does it a road course if he could take that knob and turn it and transfer half of the road course competitiveness competitiveness and are oval. He'd be unstoppable. That's how good he is and how at home he is and how comfortable he is at a road course so to go there and again. He's been there before. He loves the place. I don't see how you don't put him in the top one or two right away just showing up at the race weekend all right. We'll keep an eye on all that. We still got a look at the schedule to come and when we come back act you always going to tell you how you can win a free set of tires. Get i america. It's the moment you've been waiting for. That's right outback delivering. He is here. They enjoy lawyer affect pirates anyway physicist santa katsu and and it's he will guide. I ponti flooded tomorrow.

This is our sport. This is our house. Yeah you know when <hes> every weekend each other has responsibility and the normally we give away free free onions kevin harvick. Let us down the onions and tighter transmission little transmission mixer little trans mixer issues. We like to say in the business but we're going to do our part. We're still giving self-aware giving stuff away here so to get your free set of tires you get online and register by going to hercules tire dot com. Tom got us. The slash and him are hercules tire dot com slash marin register. They give away one free set of black tires. Nope no other colors no wall no. It's that's the only black tire available right here on the internet. All right on that loud shirt black tires hercules tires once a month free by simply hercules tire fire dot com slash. That's a good thing to do. Absolutely we mentioned earlier the dale earnhardt jr. incident with the plane running off the end of the runway on landing ending at bristol. <hes> tell us a little about that airport and when we can expect to hear a little more information as f._a._a. Investigations go forward so there's two airports that we use to fly into bristol we use elizabeth elizabeth and tri cities <hes> elizabeth <hes> a smaller airport. That's a little bit closer to the racetrack. <hes> i used it this weekend. A handful of guys that use it over there a lot of your larger planes lanes for the race teams used tri cities but the two airports <hes> unfortunately through w- <hes> flying in there they've run off the runway now. It seems very obvious well. He just land along runway. That's that's not always the case. There are things that go into place on why this airplane landed which is a very short field capable airplane <hes> and it landed long and it's going to <hes> land did not really long but ended up getting off the runway. The initial reports that it bounced it had a couple of bounces. Which is you know we don't when we talk about bouncing hick every other other landing i do about <hes> but that's just a personality thing so to describe it as a balance isn't really being very descriptive but something as simple as an airplane accident <hes> when we wreck our cars the cop shows up and draws picturing goes it was your fault <hes> or it was that guy's fault well. These investigations can take almost up to two years because they download <hes> incredible computer capability on the airplanes and they go back and they'll actually this the voice recorder voice recorder and data from the flight controls was engine controls where the gear was the airspeed altitude all of the data plus video data <hes> what we can expect as they're gonna come out in a week or two with a preliminary. Hey this is what's going on on. This is the direction we're going and they'll take upwards of two years for them to actually come down and come back with a probable cause of what happened. The good news is the airplane. Even though it ran ran off the runway did its job protected. The passengers and the pilots and everybody was able to get out why they make you buckle up. You might foss but that's why they make you buckle up on land. Absolutely no it's not about how fast ask the airplanes go to buckle up. It's about how fast they can slow down and with turbulence and what we saw there was everybody was able to get out of the airplane and that's the good the fire of the airplane it looked a little more dramatic than it was because it was a jet fuel burn <hes> but the actual cabinet of the airplane i talked to the both pilots this weekend and as well as some of the passengers they recovered three of the phones that were in the airplanes everybody out of there. They didn't like burn down to the ground and despite of what the pictures of actually one to two of the phones were still still operational the other two were water damaged from <hes> from puts it out the fire but when my point is is that the phones made it out of the wreck of the fire and they survived arrived and that's what the airplane designed to do and everything worked out good once they got on the ground in the event started happening. All the processes worked first responders. Were there <hes> a little irritated. Did i still i made a little tweet about it a little irritated that we had people filming <hes> and not helping and that always gets my goat. Put your damned phone's down man. Come hell sure somebody's home. I mean we don't we don't need video evidence of what's going on. We have enough things going on. Go help somebody and then people would respond to me well. I don't want to go near the fire cool. Stop traffic get traffic out of the way become a hall nine one one whatever it is but if you're on your phone yeah it's just what we live in right now but it's all good it'll take us anywhere from twelve to twenty four months before we finally get a realization of what happened. Are you at all surprised that we don't see more incidents. As much as the nascar community flies now compared to years ago. I mean just the odds because there are more of those flights actually and i'm going to not correct you but fill you in so when i started in ninety seven okay every race team had a king with only eight or ten people on it well every so like a company like dale earnhardt inc it had four king airs will now those four king years is one airplane. It's just a it's just a bigger planes. They're just bigger planes so there's actually a quarter of the number of planes that we used to have <hes> right now victory as a company that charters you guys fly on victory air. We have ten r._j.'s well. That's five hundred people we transport. That would be fifty years. Yeah sam saying so you're putting more the people as mount of people are the same but they're on bigger plane exactly so the bigger planes that we have less airplanes operational so we have we have less flight hours to continue to contend with during the year so actually are incident rates should be lower because we're simply flying less on the number of a passenger not unless people just less miles you were playing again we do. We're ver very professional industry. We have excellent maintenance excellent training. We have really good airplanes. I'm very proud to be inside the nascar aviation side of things <hes> referencing any other style of industry. You know we're one of the few that takes care of our own for the most part. <hes> the new england patriots famously bought their first airplane a seven sixty seven every other football teams still rides on the airlines. Yeah we really have a very small percentage very small percentage of people that rely on the commercial commercial side of aviation whereas corporate aviation takes care of them for the whole year and it's because the schedules are so crazy now everybody has to be there at certain times and back and forth and i know sometimes you go back forthwith brad. Still you still fly with him and it's not just okay. We're here for the weekend and we're done no. It's exactly right. It's a matter of being able to be different. Places a lot more efficient then you would if you were driving and or ride a commercial airline side. It's a reality of the those times we live in for sure. We'll keep an eye out for what comes of the investigations as joey said preliminary. Mary ward expected to come out here in a week or so that gives you an idea of what they're looking at more specifically and we'll keep following that here on m. r. n. dot com and on out loud as we move forward all right a big week coming up as we mentioned we're headed to candidate.

The Right Time with Bomani Jones

1:15:30 hr | 11 months ago

The Moment

"Before we get started with today's show I wanted to tell you about another grade ESPN podcast Bryant went hurson. who collected the post episodes Monday and Thursday mornings bright and early, the latest one discusses which players have decided against playing in the NBA's retired and a chance. Those who do wearing health tracking technology be sure to check it out. You can download and subscribe to Brian Winters in the WHO collective now as well as the right time wherever you get your pockets. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the right todd. My Name. Is Bomani Jones? Thanks for listening grab. You'll get your podcast rate US review. US gives five stars. You only give it four stars. I'm inclined to believe. You are a hater. Coming up on this episode of the Right Tab. What world is you mad? Dak Prescott doing. Are, these boys going to actually play college football. We also got your stories about the time. You thought you were going to have a big party with a million people, but ain't nobody really show up but I. WHO BORE NASCAR made its way into. Our News gave a taste, some funny wound up in a back and forth with some do yesterday on the tweets. And I was talking about the thing with NASCAR, and for those of you who don't know I think this is an important thing to put into this bubble wallace store because there's a lot being made about effect that a noose was left in his garage area and A lot should be made about that fact, but what was going on outside the stadium was just as important of the track rather is just as important to me as the thing that happened with him with the news. Magna let me let me be careful on that. Because I do think that with the news, the thing that's important about the news the day kind of waving over a little bit. They showed everybody walked with Bubba. Wallace on track is as good a chance that whoever was out there with him on that track. One of those people is the one that put that noose in. In there right like from what they've told us about who had access to this area. It is entirely possible to somebody that's out there claiming that they was down for him on the NASCAR. Kick actually is one of the people that did this right? This might happen might be thing and so that's a concern that I. Think Nascar has obviously is which one zero people apparently did this, but the Guardian did a story about this and I didn't really see this in too many places, but the Guardian. Board is worth a British publication had this. There were people who were driving around in Talladega. With their flags right like that was the big thing they to show. They were still around, and so they ride around with they confederate flags, and then you had which I think is been more publicized a plane that flew over Talladega with a battle with a confederate flag that said default NASCAR. Right these are the things that are going on right now. The way that I put it is NASCAR is saying. Hey, we're not a racist entity. We're not racist sport in the racist alike. WHO LOOK! What do you mean you're not? I thought we had an understanding. About this one so I had some cat pop up and he was just on. You know you know I. Don't Ever Talk About Nasr. Car I don't trust is no any NASCAR fans. I know NASCAR fans right like it's not every friend that I've ever had like I know Nascar. Fans is a one thing that's also to a good friend of mine. WHO'S REALLY INTO NASCAR? Point the he made and I think the Talladega point this out. Because I told him I was like up into a raise down at homestead. Which is south of Miami. I was like. Really see the flag and all that stuff out. There is like yeah, the newer tracks. You're not really going to see it. There's like you're not gonNA see it. Chicago was an example gay, but he was like the new tracks. You Not really gonNA see. He's I, but when you start getting into the traditional tracks, rival started getting to Talladega Martinsville. To Darlington right when you start to go into those tracks. He's like that's what it's going to be an issue because it's the flag is the t shirts. It's everything else like it's GonNa. Take a lot for them to get those folks to stop doing is they? Don't have a lot of people out. If they're really dedicated to. Making this thing, happened and ask somebody hit me onto all man. You know you're only we'll talk about this because it's a matter of race in his like is not that I only want to talk about this as a matter raised, but we all have to acknowledge. Objectively speaking right if you separate yourself from the pain that's associated with this. This is the most intellectually interesting thing that's happened around Nascar in quite a while. You know like otherwise I. Don't know what else you want me to come out here and talk about. WE'RE REGARDS TO NASCAR WITH I'm a fan of not other people WanNa get you. Hey, Ma'am! There's a national story right now and we're here. BECAUSE NASCAR got one black driver in the midst of America pretending to have some sort awakening, and they got to figure out what you do. Because a lot of the stuff they've been doing only works if there's no black people around. Now. You've got a black person around. Hey, maybe we need to rethink this whole confederate flag thing right. Okay, because bubble Wallace is here and I watched what went on at Talladega on Monday? Me Give you one thing to note about Talladega. That I did not realize honestly until this morning before preparing to do this podcast. I saw this on TV after I'd seen what I'm going to tell you. But a Paul Finebaum mentioned that the press box at Talladega used to be named after George Wass. Right. We gotta take this another step further. That track at Talladega was built in large part, because Bill France, the Patriarch of NASCAR. Endorsed George Wallace for president. In Nineteen, seventy two. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah like that's the thing that's how that whole track got to be there. In the first place that is a track in large part that segregation bill, now of course, this comes after the segregation and everything else, but when you win the owner of the whole damn thing decides. He's put his arm around George Wallace for president. You're given a signal about what kind of party it is that you throw in because what we know. George Wallace Ford Segregation now segregation tomorrow segregation forever. In that who the man that RAN NASCAR put his arm around it apart to build his track there. We're talking about right now. There's track that's at the centerpiece of everything. You gotTA understand this. If you're going to talk about all of this means for Nascar right the relationship that they have with people who do things like. Wade the confederate flag. They have embraced those people. And when the time came that it wasn't really justifiable to do that. They told those people to stop bringing their flags, but then didn't do anything about it when they actually brought their flags to put this in context. Ole Miss. The University of Mississippi did more to get people to stop waving confederate flags than NASCAR deed the school. Whose Mascot is the rebels? Did More to stop people waving the flag at their stadium NASCAR DID to get people to stop waving the flag at their tracks, right. This is what they've built. And now they gotTA figure out how to take down. They had decades to do this. It didn't have to be this, but somewhere along the way they decided that this was going to be their branding right. They decided their branding was going to be a branding of the south, but a very particular kind of south because I'm talking about a south. That doesn't have black people. And South that works hoard to keep black people away. I feel like the people who are not from the south. Don't really understand is how many black people are in the south right? The numbers have declined over the years because of the great migration, but take a state like South Carolina for example south. Carolina was majority black until nineteen thirty. Per the sense. Go look that up. Is Majority black per the census? Mississippi was in a very similar place? There you look at it now. Last time I checked Mississippi was something like thirty six percent Black Alabama somewhere between twenty and thirty percent black Georgia thirty percent. Black, Texas Twenty Percent Black Florida. I want to say something like twenty percent black. South Carolina even though South Carolina was so miserable that used to. To be like fifty percent black, it's now like twenty five or something like that. We was getting the hell out of there, but it's still twenty five percent black like this is a significant part of the population that NASCAR and a lot folks like. Nascar have just totally chosen to ignore. I don't know if you saw it as gay but rolling stone since something out, and this is from a few years ago. Tom Petty before he died was talking about confederate flags Tom Petty in eighty five album called southern. And the branding was very scattered right very very very confederate flag all over the place, and he said that he come back, realize what a mistake that was, but it was interesting in his first person story, talking about petty kept talking about what it was just something that we did in the south it was it was at the courthouse, was all of these places that that and it's this vision of the South and infuriates me more than anything else. Because the vision of the south without black people like why people want to think about what the South is that our local? They typically do it while ignoring us completely, but think about what petty. Petty, say it's flag was up at the courthouse, but this is just an everyday normal part of life in that is what Nascar decided. They were going to wrap themselves up in, and it's not like something. They did back in the day. As the symbols change, the activities remain the same thing about this. In Two Thousand Sixteen Brian France Bill Francis Son. WHO's running NASCAR at the top? NASCAR! Endorsed Donald, trump. For President. At four drivers come out there to endorse Donald. Trump for president. Out here what you think about Donald Trump right now. Right 'cause it's really difficult to talk about him because politics and all that stuff, right? However the way that I'm talking about George Wallace right now. I can say these things about George Wallace with no reservation. Nobody minds George Wallace good and did right. Nobody cares about. The way that I'm talking about bill. France endorsing George Wallace in fifty years is going to be the way that people talk about Brian France endorsing Donald Trump. They are very very similar figures. In fact, you can go back and look at the states in places that voted and the George Wallace got the nomination. Go Look at how that matches up with a Lotta. We're trump. Got Things done in that twenty sixteen election right? They're very very similar historical figures when you think about it, except trump obviously has been more successful than his attempt at winning things nationally. Nascar decided that they were going to be the ones do that. No matter what you think about, Donald Trump I'm here to tell you black folks. See You put your arm around Donald. Trump, in that way. It's an antagonistic decision for you to make. It is in fact for NASCAR when they embrace Ronald Reagan in the ways that they did that was an antagonistic action toward black people don't believe in state rights in Philadelphia Mississippi in one thousand nine hundred eighty. That's how we see this, and so we got bubble. Wallace who drives for Richard Petty's racing. And, by the way, Richard Petty won his two hundred race, which was a very big deal who was on hand for? Ronald Reagan. Who was so excited? The Ronald Reagan showed up. Richard Pay Okay. So these are all historical things that come together in this moment where all of this has happened to bubble wallace now. I WanNa talk about what happened while it's less in a macro sense than in a micro sense that I think my life experience has informed to a degree and is. Informed by the time the bubble wallace came on our podcast right and this was us about a year ago. We had a give take. August, yeah, somewhere in there, and so I wanted to have wall on, and I talked about it for a while of wanting to have him on NASCAR brought him to the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in Philadelphia and twenty eleven, and I was really impressed by him and I saw star like I looked up, and I saw star. I didn't realize how young he was at the time, but I know star when I see one and there was right in front. Front of me and I wanted to see how it went and I said since that day I was like that boy can drop even a little bit just a little bit. He's going to be a giant star, and whatever told has been some hiccups has been ups and downs as he gets to this place, but now he's like a Legit Cup series driver. He's that dude. He's been getting better. He's been improving, and it comes out for the race yesterday and. His fellow drivers pushed his car to the front, and as his great picture opposite itself him, but his mask on a showing it showing himself, and he's showing all of these people behind him, and they're all standing there in a measure of solidarity with him, and it's been talked so much about what he powerful moving moment it was for him to stand there and have all the drivers in the crew. Everybody behind him. That's not what move me. It is not and I think it's cool that all those dudes decided that they would stand with him, but if we're going to be honest here. Somebody left a noose in his garage area. Hope they stand with him like I. Don't think I as much as real like. Wow, what a big shift! This is for NASCAR THERE'S A. pull a knife three inches out my back sort of situation going on there when you talk about how moving, this is and I admit it infuriates me when these things happen that everybody wants to jump on so much more for the heartwarming moment at the end than truly reckon with what happened in the beginning. Right like this is the thing that just goes on right. You might not see a headline for the actual event, but the apology or everything else that comes on so Richard. Petty says go put his arms around Bubba Wallace. And that becomes the lead story. Right say Richard did people who kneel during the national anthem need to go find another country to live. In. This is the thing about it. I can't tell you so much. What is inside, Richard Petty's heart? I can't do that I. don't like to get into game, but I tell you it is. He sounds like when he says that a whole lot of people who've made their hearts very clear to meet. Just divorce ourselves from that because we got a happy moment because he came to hug bubble house. We can't, we can't do that. That's that's no I'm not doing that. I'll tell you what to move in. A moment was to me. The moving moment was after the race what he's doing the interview and he's standing there, and he takes off his mask and he says I. Know I'm supposed to be wearing a mass right now, but I want these people to see. You'RE NOT GONNA. Make me stop smiling right and all of that and I think that people really dug that part. That wasn't the part that moves me. And good for him by the way that he can stand in the face of this maintain his temerity maintain his constitution goofy hip. Part, that was moving for me. was those black people who were at the track behind him behind the fence as he stood there with the black lives matter t on and seeing him cry in that moment about that, and this is the reason why that part was. What was moving from me in this is where it's informed by my experience, and it's informed by having him on the show so when we had him on a pie. I didn't really want to talk to him about being the black NASCAR truck. Right because I feel like a couple of things one I feel like everybody is probably tried to hit them up to talk to him about that too I think he legitimately does not want to be viewed in the context right, and that's a bit of an assumption that I'm making my in, but I'll always remember something. He said he said. Look Man I'm black. I might not be as some people. Got On black. You know you're just going to have to deal with this and I should've asked a follow up. When he said maybe I'm not as black as some people. I don't know if he meant that from the standpoint of being light skin. If you meant that from viewing it that way because his father is white. You know what I mean like I didn't i. don't know where exactly he came from on that, and for one I admit I don't always know what to say with what they call a biracial people and the reason. I always say biracial light. That is your black. Right this idea that you get to decide well I'm kind of black and white. At the same time. It's not a game where none of us decided, we were going to be black. You're black, right? Your Daddy is white. You're black like that's how I see that, but I feel like at times. When I do that. I could understand why somebody feels as though I am invalidating a person's experience, however that invalidating your experience as much as them's the rules, you know cops. Okay, if your Momma White. Right Oh. We'll be half as much. It's not how it works, right. You're black. But what? I heard when he said that it would seem to be pretty clear. Is that we didn't want to do. Who has been in this world of racing? Right was leave school every day to go the track. He is many days out. Imagine the only black person who is there, and he's really really good right, and so that always that becomes its own tricky sort of thing, and what I imagine. Is this dude? He just trying to kick it. You know he's just trying to hang out like everybody is key. It's typically what to hang out in the impediment to him. Just hanging out like everybody else gets to hang out is the fact that he's black. You know this is an do. That's really look to draw attention to his blackness because he doesn't have to draw attention to what they all know at the second that he shows up, and it sounded in talking to him that that's created a lot of awkwardness for him. Now imagine for him trying to figure out where exactly he belonged, because he belongs in a race car, but does he belong at the track? And I think it can be difficult for those guys in those places where white people, but also for him hanging out with black people right like look man scared told us he plays drums in a metal band. All right like I don't. I don't get the feeling that that means. He's just hanging out with all these people on his own time. If that's what he's, that's where the drone plane got here right like I don't feel like that's really the folks that he's been hanging out with and I imagine that for him. He probably has a certain I. Don't know insecurities the way to put it, but wondering if he is accepted by black people, because so much of his life is antithetical to what we associate with being black. You know. And so. Again these are a certain measure of conjecture offering right like. Feeling somewhat not entirely I look I grew up in suburban Houston and all my block. We would only black people who live there but I went to school. My parents intentionally had me go someplace that had more black people. I was route NATO black colleges all the time like I had an immersion in blackness that was there, but also like what I'm in school I'm taking all the smart people classes. They not putting a lot of us in the smart people classes, it's just meet right, and so when I'm not in the sport, people classes, and we go to the classes that a little bit more integrated in those ways I'm probably for a long time, a little more inclined to hang out with white dude, because the white dude's ones that have been taking classes with for all these years right like these are the people that I know like. I play ball stuff and I'd be cool with cats and. and. Nobody ever ostracize me in any sort of way, but I was aware in many ways that I was not in the same places there, but I always remember that my junior year something happened, and they couldn't put me into smart people classes that I wanted for some reason it, so they had put me in regular people, classes and I was there, and it was really like for me to first time that I'd really had an opportunity in school to just be like hanging out with the black votes. that. Were there like I you know what I'm going to school bus and stuff like that or whatever, but this is different right and for me. It did a lot for my level of comfort, because one thing I realized is. Any judgments that I thought this. Some of them might have about me. They did not have. You know I remember too. I didn't grow up where I went to school, so I wouldn't like hanging out with these cats too much school and stuff like that like I just felt like I was on this island. That's how I feel like Wallace. Probably feels I believe school. Go straight to the track, right? On this island I'm not with them in that way and I remember that. Yeah, I was just there. It went no major thing. You would know like shocking thing to change my life, but there was something for me to be said to be in this place, and at an age, especially where you looking for acceptance, and I'd always just been like the smart dude, right? That was the only thing I knew as the first time. Time I got to be a dude that was there and I was like an l. look back on it, and that was a really important thing to me and then I go to hbu which is if I had any of those reservations anymore, they were going to completely out the window, but you know I never questioned my own blackness, but I did wonder sometimes how some other people might view me in the context of blackness. And, so let's look at Wallace who said I'm not as black as some people that says meet at somebody that on some level is questioned his own blast, not judging him for this right because I see, he's growing up in a very particular circumstance, but that's what I hear is someone who was questioned his own blackness. And so I. See this dude any standing there. and. He's got those people behind him and black lives matters t shirts. These fans that he had no idea that he had helped fans that had no idea they were his fans until he was out there. And what I saw was someone who perhaps. This brought about a moment that I don't think he ever thought that he would fully experience. I think it's the moment that he realized. There while he has been hoping to be accepted in this world of racing. And that he is hoped that at some point that he's White, folks would take Kim as he is in not think of him as the black guy that happens to be there. Little. Did he know that as is just about always the case? You'll people been right over there with their arms wide open ready to take you. Because no matter how it goes, man, and you can look around the world on this long as you don't sell us out. We got you. We know the struggle that you have. We know what is like, even if we haven't done it exactly for you, we know what it's like for you to be the one guy in that room. We know what the things are that you must have overheard. People say about you. We know that things that people have probably said to your face. We know how that feels. We know the humiliation that you're probably received at some point when you believe that. That these white people that you were with cared about you and saw you as being one of them, and then you heard the things that they've had to say. We know all those things. We know the danger that you were in on a fairly consistent basis being demand. You are in the world that you're in right. We know and we knew that there was a chance that the day will come. Somebody will put a news and your garage area. We are the ones who always appreciated what the struggle is that you were going through and we have always been. They're prepared and ready when you needed. To take you in. When you just wanted. To take you win and I see that picture him those people behind him and I see the emotion on his face and I see a man who realized that. Whatever his own personal relationship with blackness happens to be! Blackness has a relationship with him. Blackness embraces him and his type of black his brand of black his particular experience. We embraced it. We here for you. You can be good at this racing. You could be to do finish last every week. We're going to have you. Because? We know that you need us. dudes out there on track. Some of them there for you because they know that you need them. But a lot of them there because they know that they need him. Well need you. Like in that way. That's now what is at all? But there you stood at a track. The George Wallace put up there because NASCAR was willing to embrace the segregations. Black folks even though people out here with these flags and everything else in the midst of a pandemic I imagine some of those people never been in that track ever before didn't even know the directions on how to get to the track. And! They were there for that dude and I can't imagine how much that warned his heart, and I hope for him that it helps solidify whatever there may be about him and his self image that he's been trying to make peace with. I hope for his own sake that that moment and that day solidified that for him. You could say this is a great day for Nascar No, sir. That was a great day for bubble. Wallace and it didn't have nothing to do with the drivers. That won't attract with him. That was a great day for bubba Wallace because I. think that that was the day. The bubble wall is realized no, my man. You are just as black. As, everybody else, that's out there. You are just as black as me. You are just as black those people who came to cheer you want. And? They're going to be here with you until you tell them to leave. Please, don't tell them to leave just just just just just just just to let you know gave out one by to cancel this, do like please don't please. Don't please don't tell US leave. These are fans that wouldn't have been there. Yeah, had last couple of weeks had an unfolded with banning the confederate flag, but I also think past that I just don't think he knew he was. How would they know their daughters black dude race? Name was bubba Wallace they know right at no cost to this now just ready for the next level of it, which is all right I don't have no evidence. It is right. I. Don't know, but I'm just. Saying is right now. I'll know who you might be out here. Maybe you want to the city girls, maybe you. Maybe what am Khloe Halley's our? No, I'm trying to think of somebody else. That might work out well. I'm just saying which one of Y'all wants to be Sierra to his Russell Wilson. All you gotta? Do is get show agent to call his agent and Y'all can make your habit. I'm just saying not now that you know. We hear brother I'm here to tell you. The sisters are here to they down. They win it.

Did you know you ain't get no evidence in fact. Since people are on their journeys. Here what are y'all introduced bubba Wallace to Naomi Oh sokoll. Could work. that. This great idea did I don't know man. The travel schedules might be kinda difficult. It might it might Naomi Osaka. She's going all international on us. That's true. That's true I mean, but at the same time that maybe drive a Formula One. All I'm saying is over the weekend Naomi. Osaka was sitting by the pool reading the wretched Earth. The Earth the Internet? Bradley now the rest of the earth is real. If you know you know type situation, there's a time where you bought a copy of Richard and they put you put that in your file, right? She got onto it put. The earth out there, she by need to be bubble wallace to let's get this. How can we make this happen? How could we get your them up? How can we put the two of them together right slows. The Josie outs. Dude, right, we can't. We can't bring her into the party right here. Let's do that. How do we bring bubba Wallace and ill meal soccer together? How can TA quite lyceum? So it ain't going to say but I think we can still find him a Sierra like figure. The Miami Open I. Think the Miami Open is supposed to be the precursor to the US Open, or like right after and I don't know if the US Open's really gonNA. Even be happening. Now let me think I'm trying to think who else how else we can. Make this happen for Bubba Wall. It's like I don't know too much. Like who the people are in his age range these days. That's like really the ones for him to come hall but Y'all think Y'all think of some some some some Nice young ladies do how I really think that. I can't tell. which which what happened, but I feel like that'd be great for hill. Did it could be outside? PSA changes life. Yes, have about their hanging out with salon. Salah's talking revolution type stuff to him you. Going to be in the bread and black in green forty three car, it could happen. It could happen. Why because we love you, Bubba whether they treat bad or not. Now you got me check this double checking to make sure that he is indeed single out above. Wallace's girlfriend makes statement after a news. Get Russell Wilson, was once married. Just saying I think it's a white lady to. I am not surprised just saying yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah, yeah, no, no, no, no surprise. There nose bras there I, I absolutely one hundred percent might have seen that Covid, and that is why I'm saying. Let's get them one of them. City girls. They changed. His life totally changes life city girl Gopi here. BUBBA METALLICA tried that lightning. What I'm saying. You know bubble wireless. Here talk about Oh. Yeah I liked that all my neck, my back changes. My God did comedy. That was fantastic. But it has to be like some type of Sierra type figure that's GonNa like open his mind yet, and also to has like maybe a little bit more notoriety than he to get him into the type of parties. We need to get both listening. Gear up you see Russel Wilson? Jackson all ZIP stuff like De. Is the other part. Gave you ever seen the video for Sierra? Song Call Reid who. I'm sure I have but I have not a very long time. is either. She Changed Russell Wilson's life. Period! You're man Dak Prescott. Side franchise tend to gay three one million dollars. He went ahead and signed it. I saw something on profootballtalk with Florio was like yeah, well, he probably did it. 'cause you know. Maybe they were afraid to cowboys yet. The Franchise tag back a similar to would the panthers deal Josh Norman a few years ago I. Don't think the cowboys were ultimately going to do that. However I can relate to Dak deciding decide that franchise tender if he so decided, and reason is very simple. I don't know how many of you of headed. Conduct any business their pandemic. I have had to conduct business during the pandemic. Let me tell you what happens when you conduct business during the pandemic. Conducting business during the pandemic. EMESA take the money that's available. Right there right there. It make your real nervous. Ain't no telling if his money now it don't mean is going to be money later. Not Everybody is ready for that sort of thing to come arousal in the midst of the pandemic that Joe where is the pins? Somebody off you thirty million dollars in the middle of pandemic damage. You better take right like Raphael. Dak Wars right into their, please. Go ahead and side now this to me, though like what quarterback is a little different than the position players because the thing about the quarterback is, nobody can hit them whenever they actually get back, so none of us believe the press guy was going to miss any gains behind this, and if they don't sign a contract by to life fifteenth, then they can't sign one anyway, so there's no realistic about in place for him to hold out, so we might as well go ahead inside the tender because whenever he comes in. Nobody's really going to do anything for. I. Just feel like in the last few months. Ain't nothing. GonNa away deck thought it was going to write like debt going for his money to get his money I. Don't blame him for trying to get his money, but I think at least at this moment is learning a difficult lesson and I've been down this road before to DAX product thinking they got to pay me. Right this I did that. They got to pay ninety, don't they? Don't they don't? They don't got to do nothing actually they don't. They don't got to pay you. That's that's not how it works. They got pay and so he's been engaged in his fight over this money fighting fighting, fighting fighting for. Over Jiri in twenty seventeen, when Jerry was on his thing about the anthem, right, he did that just a couple of weeks ago. Dak decided he wanted to do something because it occur at. Fool gave a million dollars to the. Police and maybe that's why he signed a franchise tend to so fast, and I got that much money is their franchise to man. I gotta go over the police. One million dollars I don't WanNa sort trying to get it. Right and so we got that, so that gave the police a million dollars the day before Patrick Behold Shawn Watson where of straight from the underground young guy too bad, because a brown like Dax played that with. Way To do this, wasn't it? At all now, he's trying to get his money, but he's in the middle of a pandemic up above bad timing. Not where you want to do it not where you wanted to go, no sorry Bob. All of these things. where he says and now he's coming in for a season. That might not happen at. He's got his franchise tag. You know what gay maybe we need to find him a Sierra. What did you think she could change his life? Yeah, I'll say that much I'd say. It is a Sierra. He will be given a million dollars to the police actually thought about this. That we talked about bubba Wallace maybe changed his life. Everything like this. You know what I find to be funny. Every time somebody wants to talk about this interracial affection right everybody coming together using the the drew brees dat picture. You know what I'm saying and. Wallace got the black lives matter car with the interlock and it's racial debt. He's got to go. Come at eight number, a picture of a black man in a white woman holding hands. How come y'all ain't never got that. You know what I'm saying. How come back KPI picture and that's all I'm saying how come that came. Out Picture of unity. Her that. A widow couple racist himself. The next thing you. He come out with a picture of him and his girlfriend front caught. I think go given his girlfriend. There's an echo of the bachelor compensation that. Week, whether or not these NASCAR drivers will be able to handle that everything will go out the window. Everything would go out the window. Look a Badger bubble while arrays. He all the podium, right? They shoot share paid off it everything else he do it. He got his queen up there. Would you call your Queen Right? He guys queen up there. And what if he show that he? What true love really is right because let me tell you what true love do. And y'all. Notice the real. True Love. Grab Uti in public. Like true love and you had to movies and waiting in line to get your tickets back when we did those things true love, grab boot in front of people and she don't care because it's you is all good. That's true. Love is down right I, think I remember that I I had like real girlfriend, or whatever we in somewhere and I tried to lie sneaker. Grab a book issues that day like No. We right here, right? That's what you love do what above Bubba Wallace? Before was in true love all stage afterward. It's NASCAR. Power, Daegu. Davos. Go see that's best party. People saying I turn everything into some about race is not that I turn everything into some about race is that I'm better at talking about this stuff because I'm the only one that's not a fray talking about standing on stage at a Nascar race with your Nordic Queen grabbing her booty. And why can't you grab her boot? What's so salacious about this idea? What's so controversial about what it is that I M propose? Nothing at all when I talk about Russell Wilson and he ain't no longer kicking it with his ex wife. Sierra. Everybody were talking about us he would you talking about? I WANNA say some bub-bubba wireless grabbed his queens boating right now. Eight Oh. Do I. Don't want to do now Dodo by what to say. I'm just telling you go out away. Maybe go outweigh with it and you'd see that company here. We are at love that you wanted to do. Dak Prescott is a topic purely, so you can make your weight of a grabbed the bag in the pandemic which is. Probably Forty five seconds. That's all I had. Look coming up with other topics. Well we still got a lot going on with colleges. The college athletes first of all gay. Do you think? Is GonNa? Be Account football season because I. Don't think it's going to be no college football season I. Don't think so I mean when you see. All these reports of different schools have different numbers of players pretty high. I'd say yes, as like a ratio per team tested positive. Positive Yo because college students can't be trusted. They're irresponsible. Think about this. You Man Novak Djokovic which had his little tournament Hebrew minded yoga has been talking about came made me take no vaccine if I don't want to all this stuff or whatever, and so they put together a little tournament, and a bunch of guys will play in the tournament, apparently went out to a nightclub and. And like five of them caught it including job like a budget dues out there and cardio now the idea that in these times dudes were going to a nightclub is really really stupid I think there's no way around it like the fact that they put themselves in. That position is stupid I'm not blaming them per se for catching it, but I'm saying that they took unnecessary risks and. And those are adults like those are real. Live grownups are real money on the line and they did that and we're supposed to trust these college students to behave themselves, and and do what it is that they are supposed to do now, so they're turning up in droves with this, and in some cases like I think it was Clemson. Clemson got twenty seven players that have it. But. They showed up without it. You know what I mean like like. This whole thing just feels terribly unwieldy at impossible and. It feels like the colleges are basically saying. Look. Somebody's GONNA. Have to die in order to make this happen right or or mega stop you understand what I say and I. Don't know dies the way to put it, but this doesn't feel safe. It doesn't and the most disturbing thing about it to me. Is the idea that so many of these guys showed up voluntary workouts now I. Imagine that some of them just want to get added a Momma's house. Aware it is. They've been miss their friends and everything else, but I am against stunned that there are so many people who are going I, heard not once not mobile like my baby is not showing up here. We saw trevor. Rees said that. That he's not going to go to the NBA bubble because he's going to stay and take care of his son in the course of this time, so these people that are walking away from millions of dollars. They're GONNA recess cases. Go cost them. I want to say something like seven figures to not do this right and none of these college players are doing that and that I think speaks to the power dynamic is they worried about losing their jobs losing? Losing a place on the depth chart and everything else they worried about how to do the coaches and everything else, and so they're all showing up, and now these guys catching it and I can't imagine how terrified it is for those people who do be surrounded by people who were catching it do did you see that players that Ohio state or asked to sign a waiver yup? But this is a big story across the college landscape like people really jumped. Jumped off on a house state about this, but the big thing that colleges have been trying to figure out in this is what is the liability that they're going to incur like it is possible that like a covert situation could bankrupt, not just a big school small school, but a big school like this thing could be huge going to be a lot of waivers and stuff like that. That are going to come around here because this is wildly unsafe. Right everybody's taking a risk because they feel like. They have to take a risk to get the money, but the risk is at the expense of the players, so let's fast forward to what's going on. At Ucla, where apparently the players to say, we want an independent doctor in place. For All of this that's going on because they don't trust the athletic department and their doctors. It has been put particularly on chip. Kelly now the part of this that I think is unfair to chip. Kelly is I think every player at every school should be requesting this. Every single one right by every player is in the same situation as the kids are in a ucla and they. They. Feel like they've been rushed. You know they feel like with away. Other injuries and things have been handled they. Maybe they've been rushed back and stuff like that and all of this is kind of interesting to me. Because Chip Kelly, the guy is supposed to be i. get the forefront of sports science. They spend a ton of money on that stuff I. Forgot Ucla alone, yeah. I'd get them to show, didn't it? I have forgotten here that eighty, but that's supposed to be chip Kelly staying, so it was surprising to me to hear that, and now we're starting to hear the other whispers about chip. They're really tied back to what we were here in like twenty, fourteen, twenty fifteen about the way the chip relates to black players, and what I've always said as their relationship is. I don't get too caught up in who is or isn't a is right, but I will know that chip Kelly wants to John Giancarlos come to his football. Jersey. Right that's not typically the behavior of the quote unquote. Racist I believe I. Thought the Harry Edwards about this area where it's seem to be okay with chip on these matters, but what? I was told from people. I talked to while that was going on then. Is that what chip can't handle is if you got like a little bit of street in? Right like it's something comes up. That makes them think about your black. It gets a little weird for and I can believe that spent forty something. Years of his life is up there in New Hampshire like he had not had any real exposure to black people i. don't think until he started as office coordinator Oregon in two, thousand and seven. You know that's not that's not. It's a lot for him. Like coach in Major College football is actually not in liable what his life's work has been. This is just where the money is. Where the challenges for him and hill the way he coaches. It'd be back in New Hampshire Pretty Damn soon as is, you don't seem to be so good at this stuff anymore, but that's where he is with these players and that's the. The latest the players being like Oh, man, we got demands. We got things we nick flex in it and we heard anything back from what's going on at Texas. We talking about that at a boys Texas went out there and say look. We don't want you to to Texas anymore. SAWS, races, and by the way that thing where people like Oh my God really the eyes of Texas little do. Do you know to black students Texas Mattel on each other for decades. Don't ever get causing an so by the way just so you know, so. We had that at Texas. We saw what happened with Shubra. Hubbard at Oklahoma state and those other guys and I'm not exactly sure what's going on there. We saw what happened for like five minutes at our before. They got them boys to call now. Now, after all was said, and done there, and now we got a young man in Mississippi, state I believe his name is I. Don't know how to pronounce this Keelan or Kyle and I. Really don't know K. Y. L. I in he'll and tweeted the governor of Mississippi, and said that either change the flag, or I will be representing the state anymore. I mean that I'm tire. Yeah! A lot of these dudes for whatever reason have simply had enough. And maybe they're empowered by the protest, maybe they are. Empowered Kobe nineteen, but that's his creating a different level, tinted anxiety for a lot of people. They're not going forward and I think that a lot of ways schools are still going to be able to like get together. It'd be like Oh. Let's have a talk. Right and they go have a talk and we call a bunch of stuff down. Everybody's like. Oh, my bad. You know so forth and so on and all of those things, but I am really struck by how many? Players in this day in time had the courage to stand up to these coaches who had been bullying them for decades. And I don't even get the feeling like with this Dude Hill and Mississippi state. He's a good player. But this doesn't feel like entitlement or diva, type, behavior, impulsive, stuff or anything else. He's just like you know I'm not going to do this. supplus that I am not going to do this, and those are the people in this I really do applaud and a lot ways. We just make these individual decisions like the WNBA. To talk about the work that those women in that league do in terms of social stuff, but what I love about my more is waking up. It'd be like Hey. I ain't playing this year. I got something better to. Dedicate myself to that people just. Can't do this right now. So that we talked about Kyri Dwight Howard where they're like. I think a lot is going on outside. I'll do whatever the large group does, but I think that that that now man. If you bought it, you go, make this happen yourself right and people that are willing to stand alone like I was talking in a group text with a couple of people. And we were talking about Kareem. Abdul Jabbar and how Korea doesn't get enough. Credit. Cream boycotted the a sixty eight Olympics all by himself. He himself was like now. I'M NOT GONNA go. Now don't feel right. I'm not doing it by himself. Like that takes heart that takes a whole `nother level of your situation to make these decisions all by yourself that you're not going to do it. And we're starting to see those people, Papa and those are the ones who ultimately inspire those are the ones who make people look at themselves and be like okay. Why can't I do this? And that's how you get it more likely that you get a group of people in the room because it's more of these individual things that energy is contagious, people just. Just. Look around, but like know why we gotta do this. Like the Mississippi thing with the flag is interesting, because this is what I think happening with it I thought. At least the governor of Mississippi seems to be given a different impression, but my thing was to Mississippi is there wasn't really a push for taking that flag down? I'd seen discussion but I. I had really seen a push and the next thing I know. The southeastern conference says we're not going to give you guys championship. Even though they had to give them a championship god-knows-how-long in the state of Mississippi, and so they said we're not gonNA hold championships there and then we gonNA statement from president. Mississippi State I. Think we've got a statement from. From the president of Ole Miss and then the governor says over the last several years I repeatedly warm, my fellow Mississippi, any attempt to change the current Mississippi flag by few politicians, the capital will be met with much content if the leadership of two thousand one had not put it on the ballot. Then compensation compensation may be different, but they did and therefore. Therefore. We must work together to find a solution where it went. Everyone has their say. We could come together as a family and prosper. We must work together to find a solution. Once all said and done unites as people proud of our future I've been thinking and praying hard about the best way to accomplish that over the weekend. There has been proposal floating. Floating among some of the legislation to create a second Mississippi flag. Let's call it the separate, but equal option well intentioned I'm sure it does not meet the threshold. Any similar plan would accomplish the exact opposite of our stated goal. It would actually divide our state more I. Don't believe it was satisfied. Either side of this debate and I don't think it is. Is a viable alternative. Now had no idea that people were actually talking about trying to come up with a second flag like schools have second problems right? I had no clue that that is what people were talking about. However, the governor gets. This is a bad look, right? The governor understands that this is probably something that they cannot stay. The governor also understands. Understands that he is in such a fiercely segregated state and I need explain this to you to understand the level segregated in Mississippi and a stance, more Mississippi and other southern states, but it still stands out in southern states less. Do you realize how segregated is holding has to be if that state is thirty six percent black in every state wide offices Republican. My black people vote over ninety percent. Democrat right thirty six percent of the state is black ninety percent of that thirty six. Is Voting for Democrats and the Democrats can't win no thin. The races aren't even close. That's because all the white people voting for Republicans in a way that is not case in the rest of the country. They all law like that's the level of divide that they've got there. And so I think the governor knows this flag has to go, but also knows that if you leaders to a popular vote, why folks do it right? The Need to demonstrate to black people that white people are in charge of Mississippi has been going on basically prior to reconstruction, but especially since reconstruction because there were so many black people Mississippi's majority black for so long the only way white people can maintain control was through these means. That was the only way they could do through terrorism through all of these days, because otherwise, it was just too many black people that they. They played it fair and Square Mississippi would have had black leadership for over a century if they played a fair and square. South Carolina would have blacks leadership for over a century. You get where I'm coming from here right? And so why people have always enlist zipping galvanized voting for whiteness, because that was the only way the whiteness could maintain power in that state, so this confederate implements in the quarter of their flag is a sign of that power, right risk the twenty first century when they decided to keep it okay, so that's a sign of that power. That governor knows that. If they put that on the ballot, it'll never come now. They know that, but I think all the tricks Ole. Miss had to go through to finally get the confederate flag out of the stadium and the way they finally got it done was not by banning the flag, but by saying you couldn't bring the flag if it was on a stick because the stick was a safety hazard. That's how they got it done. That was how they were able to it. Happen was by banning the sticks. Because in folks, soul dedicated over there to give this impression of white people being in charge all right, that's where we are. So I think the governor. Is Looking at schools in the SEC. Look Man. I can't do this myself. And I can't get this passed on no ballot, but if y'all starts squeezing us right now, start acting like this is going to mess up the football. The maybe I got a chance over here to get this done but I need you to do this. Because I can't. And they can't. Because if it looks like you're bowing down the black people. The White House form. Voltron and shut you down. But if it looks like the SEC wants this. Now people might start to listen. That's what I think is going on there. I could be wrong. I think that's a reasonable hypothesis for what is happening there and so I look at that young man. He's like well. I ain't gonNA come. I'm almost like ooh. Way, man. You Might Kinda Sorta be messing up the program not that you shouldn't stand what you believe, right? But they'll do it if a white man say to do it if a southern white say to do it. They got a chance. Black people tell them to last hundred fifty years indicate that will make them fight. You know you can't be on top of all the news and information of the day. No need for the social media feeds. We got you now. If you haven't heard all right Bomani, this first story in public safety. Hi, this is Jeffrey. Derek I'm an editor at slate magazine. I live in Boston. Where everybody in my neighborhood is convinced that there are way more backyard fireworks being shot off than usual this year I decided to look into this piece and what I discovered is that there has been a big spike in fireworks complaints in Boston New York and a number of other cities across the country. In Boston. For example there was a twenty three hundred percent year-over-year increase in complaints for the month of May. Now this time of the year in the lead up to July fourth that there are generally more fireworks being shot off, and does more people complaining about them. And over the last two decades there's been a successful nationwide effort to liberalize state fireworks laws with the result that Americans are generally consuming a lot more fireworks than they used to so those. Those factors could make it a little tricky to Parse out how extraordinary twenty twenty years in terms of fireworks use. Maybe it's just more people complaining, but then I spoke to the fireworks industry I learned that there has been a significant nationwide increase in consumer fireworks sales this year, especially in the weeks since I wrote my piece, there are a lot of theories floating around the Internet and social media about what could lie behind that increase the first is. The boredom hypothesis, the fireworks industry and government authorities both agree that the pandemic is a big part of this story. There are more people sitting around at home with nowhere to go. Other entertainment options closed. So why not explode some stuff? There's also a supply and demand theory. The display side of fireworks industry. This is the companies that put on the professional shows has been devastated. Devastated by the widespread shutdown of events, some of those companies also operate consumer, side, businesses or retail locations. The law prohibits retailers from selling pro grade stuff to the public, but there may be some opportunities to reallocate inventory or staff resources to where the demand is, that could result in more firework sales to the public. Alas, theory is that the consumer fireworks industry has adopted. Adopted New Marketing Strategies because of the pandemic for example, most firework sales happen in the days leading up to July fourth, resulting in long lines at stores, one retailer I spoke to worried that they wouldn't be able to accommodate as many last minute shoppers this year because they are limiting how many people can be in their stores at once so they're doing more early bird. Bird discounts and promotions to try to get people buying sooner and most of the major retailers have now started offering online shopping and curbside pickup online sales were a practice, and it was almost nonexistent before the pandemic. In this industry, these practices could be helping the fireworks. Companies reach new customers I live in New York City. Where people I've seen people be out here like. You know maybe not more fireworks. No, it's all the time fireworks all over the place and it's not like it's not like people just industries shooting off firecrackers. You know like you looking up into the like I hadn't really paid that much attention to it, but on June eighteenth I was looking at it and I was like Oh. Wow I'm a little surprised that the Bronx is going up for June eighteenth like this right this. This is a different group of people with think, and then you start seeing it and is not again. It's not just like boom boom boom, going off its big displays like you see him up in the air like it would be really cool if it wasn't happening every single night and has led to some people to raise the question as to whether or not, this is something to be perpetrated by the government of some sort. Sort to get people used to all the noise and everything else. I don't know if that's true, but I would say what I noticed last night a blot not too far from my house that I could see from roof. I can look and I could see like the pretty fireworks, and then I saw one block, and it looked like a bunch of flash BANGS RIGHT ASIA's. Boo Boo, BOO, BOO! Boo and I saw like light. Light coming, but it wasn't fireworks. There was no pageantry to it or anything like that, so I don't know what exactly is going on, but it's hard for a lot of us to believe that in this time we're ain't. Nobody really got no money putting bread on fireworks right now. No matter how cheap they happen to be, they're asking for a lot of people and I'm very curious. How long exactly this is going to go! On the roof last night stepping. Yeah of your hair reveal. Is that what you're doing? I was on the roof in the afternoon, taking pictures of my hair reveal and at night. I was just looking at the city. Thank you, can I enjoy the skyline That's what I was doing. was. People love this. The second custom entertainment hi. This is Kim Lyons with the verge so movie theater chain AMC which is the biggest movie theater chain in the world is getting ready to reopen theaters across the country next month. At first, the company CEO said AMC wasn't going to require customers to wear masks at instigators, because it didn't want to be drawn into a political controversy while that decision was met with almost immediate pushback and AMC has now reversed its policy and says it will require masks for all customers at its theaters. Several other movie theater chains have followed suit and also require masks. There are several big movie set to debut next month including the new Milan including. Including Christopher Nolan's tenant, so there's a lot of anticipation. A lot of bugs and movie theaters have been closed since March so they're pretty desperate for some revenue. If you're planning to go to the movies when theatres reopened, make sure you have a mask. If you don't bring one most cities will provide one for you. AMC has mentioned that it's revenue is in such tough shape that if it's unable to reopen theaters next month, it may not bode well for its future dude. Easy right the idea. He's like I. Don't want to be drawn into something political. Do you want to be drawn into headlines of all the people catching it at your movie theaters? Are you kidding me like open in the movie? Theaters at all doesn't seem like a very good idea. I don't want to get caught in anything political. You just did it right in there, right? No, no! Put your mask on something and I need to verify this, but I thought I hear anyway I saw something they said to two had caught it advocate. What city was able to to Barbara's? who had caught him between the two of them? They had one hundred and forty clients. The Barber's wore masks. The clients did not. Of those one hundred forty clients, none of them. None of them. Mike the mask is such an effective thing. Why is it so hard for Y'all to just put a mask on? Don't see what is so difficult about this for you. Just put something over your face. We could get so far in this part of what's happened here. All look all these leagues and everything else just trying to come back right now. They had been told basically that if everybody deal with it was supposed to do and if. If we were on track the June or July we will be able to start getting back to action. That's what people were told. And now we see people now. That is June or July. Getting back to action, except for the fact that we ain't been acting right, if y'all just ask right, everything'll take care of itself, but you've got to act right in this fool will not do a little small part to get people to act. Out over be caught up in politics all right, buddy, let me tell you what happened to you. This thing all calm down except ain't nobody wearing no mass and we gonNA. Stop calling at Kobe nineteen. The week are calling at AMC disease. You go be like the new legionaires out here doing this crazy. It's not like they're offering discounted tickets or something like that. This isn't like you're getting compensated like hazard, pay or something for putting yourself at risk I think their dilemma is that the studios have figured out. They can monetize this via homes, and so they're shook, and so on one hand I'm like put the mask on, so you keep the place. Place Open on the other hand. They're worried about telling people. They have to wear a mask and people staying home, and then never coming back because they realize that they can just watch the movie in the comfort of their home, and also the Jack Asses. That'll be like I ain't going nowhere going to make me wear a mask right like maybe they're worried about them so they. Maybe there's like an additional room for this, but in the end put a mask on demand whether that man tell you to or not going to the movies. Isn't that wonderful experience? anyways? People kicking on the backyard. See Talking during the movie. You don't like people very budget. I'm skeptical. Less story comes from science. This is Greg Allen with NPR news I'm based in Miami for NPR. I've been recently reporting on a plan by the Army Corps of Engineers. They've been developing a plan to protect Miami from storm surge. You know that's the part of a hurricane. The typically causes the most damage in the most loss of life in Nineteen ninety-two, for example, a seventeen foot, storm, surge and hurricane. Andrew did some five hundred million dollars in damages to an area just south of Miami. So this is a huge project. The Army Corp Engineers. Engineers is looking at. It would cost some four point six billion dollars. If it goes forward, it could take a decade or more to complete right now. They're taking public comment on it. The chorus proposing building a series of seawalls along the Miami waterfront, some of these walls could be as high as fifteen feet in some places. Maybe cause some issues with how well you can see the water. The plan calls for pumps and storm surge gates placed on waterways, including the Miami River which is a working river here in Miami. The core has. Has Similar plans in the works for other places along the southeastern coast, Norfolk Charleston or two cities where they have plans like that going forward one major questions surrounding the project here in Miami though is sea level rise with Climate Change Florida expects to see as much as a foot and a half and sea level rise over the next sixty years. This plan takes that into account, but doesn't do anything really to address the long term flooding issues that this region may see in coming years, it could also have a big environmental impact on. On Biscayne Bay a sensitive area that's where coral reefs are now already being stressed a lot by the traffic from marine traffic and other things going on in the bay, so at this point, the plan is welcomed by local officials as something that could potentially help the city avoid billions of dollars in damages from a direct hit from something like Hurricane Katrina, but as I say, it's a long process, a much larger project protect New York City from storm surge was put on hold earlier this year after president. Trump tweeted his opposition to it. When I first mood, Miami Iras story and the story said that basically Miami hit one hundred years left on years left because he's always bracing for the storm. That's going to shut the whole thing now. I feel like looking around at everything that's happening. They did the world I mean. It Ain't gonNA HAPPEN NOWADAY GO OUT Into the world. Now you gotTA start preparing in a way that you did not before. Is that also not part of what makes it enticing to live in Miami? Now is that it may not be there in the future. Not that's not that that that was not a draw. I will say that that was that was. The appeal but not, but the other thing we're Miami is have to do a significant amount of drainage just for it to be liveable as it is like Miami is totally synthetic everything about it. Is that right? But that's the big thing. They put a lot of water out. Stop for being swapped into. Make it into effectively. Would it is but no, no, no, no, no, we are definitely running a game on Mother Nature. The whole existence of Miami is running a game the four. I went to Miami for the first time I had no idea that Miami beach was basically like constructed out there on some sand. Underwater if not been intervention just gets that really like this. That's the best way to put it. It's not really like this like i. think the beaches thing. I think it's full synthetic beach he. We're going to be so mad when they started building up. Big concrete blocks to kind of protect them from future storm surge in his blocking their view. Lake Greg said my God. People are heated, yes. So that other verge from two thousand sixteen, so Miami beach is sand now. That's the Subhan Miami. Beach has run out of sand now. What the beach is every bit as artificial as the towers at Turquoise pools for years, the has been eating away at the shore. The city has been may as a dollars pumping sand from the sea floor. Replace it only to have it wash away again. Every half Santa. Miami beach was placed there by my Gosh. Kerr. Hey this is Bomani. You've reached the. voicemail whatever you want, get creative with it, but this is your place to go back to show Saddam back. These are the money so. From the social segment this week for opening up voicemail line, the people there was a big party that was supposed to happen a big rally that was supposed to happen this best week. Let's just say the attendance wasn't quite what people thought it would be. Is that a fair characterization well? Yeah, yeah, I still contend just to be clear here. I don't care how many people they thought. Wisconsin. They say got tickets. Whatever was tells saying close to know where how how how? How was a million people a million people? Go GET A to Tulsa. From where where would they go fly into? Where were they going to drive into? Where were they going to sleep? All of these things only fall for that if you just believed it. was talking about brother about this brothers like yeah man to Thai kids they they. They convince trump that all these people coming I'm like as if trump did not believe already that a million people were coming. People to come in anytime, he talks. They didn't give fooled people to think of the party, so we thought it would be funny to. Solicit voicemails from a time where you had a party or went to a party when it wasn't as advertised the number of people that were supposed to be there didn't show up any kind of stories tangentially related to that. We had some pretty funny ones. I comes from Robert Trinidad and Tobago. And a group of fun, so having a proxy excess. All, these nothing ladies. Will be there. Everybody out of four through real good. Have you on point everything? Good! Oxley. 'cause I was going to be running. If I have been ten bucks ice. When I'm coming now, I told you I'm doing the. Bull. Got Up text message. It got some ten bucks to eat. Fifteen minutes later. It bugs, the fresh before I got a text message telling door everybody dogs. Bill, when I should I talked to. If it wasn't for the two of the guys, mothers and Fathers Day what up four people. Guy Difficult for two months. Confined. Just used to someone else this necessarily to make sure your eyes go two months recovered from DC. The Save. Four people show up having to put out an order like that. Isn't that always the funniest thing when it's? You're trying to anticipate how big a party it's going to be. This goes for just about any party. This goes for like a wedding when trying to figure out how much food you gotTA. Buy, party figuring out how much liquor you're going to buy! How much meat for the grill whatever and the overestimating an who gets left holding the bag, the person that's running the errand. Yuck going up ten bags of ice. Is he getting reimbursed for this ten bags of ice? Yeah, somebody got somebody I. Still got to pay for this stuff. I say this though I'll tell you something that actually changed my life. It was a moment like these. Are you familiar with a reggae artist? Named Yellow Man I me yellow man. You would know if. You would know but gentleman man was big and eighties and nineties got his big hit Scott Murderer. You killed today. You cannot kill tomorrow bird era. Anyway I went to go see yellow man. Rally in Raleigh is notoriously for poorly promoting shows right so as me may appear green does beat on this track homeboy a three of us, counting the three of US five people showed up to the show at the legged theater, and when I tell you that man put on a full.

My name is Bomani Jones. Thanks for listening grab. You'll get your podcast rate US review. US gives five stars. You only give it four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater coming up on this episode of the Right Tab. What world is you mad? Dak Prescott doing. Are these boys going to actually play college football. We also got your stories about the time. You thought you were going to have a big party with a million people, but ain't nobody really show up but I. WHO BORE NASCAR made its way into our news gave a taste, some unfunny, funny wound up in a back and forth with some do yesterday on the tweets. And I was talking about the thing with NASCAR, and for those of you who don't know I think this is an important thing to put into this bubble wallace store because there's a lot being made about effect that a noose was left in his garage area and A lot should be made about that fact, but what was going on outside? The stadium was just as important of the track rather is just as important to me as the thing that happened with him with the news magna. Let me let me be careful on that because I do think that with the news, the thing that's important about the news the day kind of waving over a little bit. They showed everybody walked with bubba Wallace on track is as good a chance that whoever was out there with him on that track. One of those people is the one that put that noose in. In there. Right like from what they've told us about who had access to this area. It is entirely possible to somebody that's out there claiming that they was down for him on the NASCAR. Kick actually is one of the people that did this right? This might happen might be thing and so. That's a concern that I think NASCAR has obviously is which one zero people apparently did this, but the Guardian did a story about this and I didn't really see this in too many places, but the Guardian Board is worth a British publication had this. There were people who were driving around in Talladega With their flags right like that was the big thing they to show. They were still around, and so they ride around with they confederate flags, and then you had which I think is been more publicized a plane that flew over Talladega with a battle with a confederate flag. That said Default Nascar. Right. These are the things that are going on right now. The way that I put it is NASCAR is saying. Hey, we're not a racist entity. We're not racist sport in the racist alike. WHO LOOK! What do you mean you're not? I thought we had an understanding. About this one, so I had some cat pop up and he was just on. You know you know I don't ever talk about Nasr. Car I. Don't trust is no any NASCAR. Fans I know NASCAR fans right like it's not every friend that I've ever had like I know NASCAR fans is a one thing that's also to a good friend of mine. WHO'S REALLY INTO NASCAR? Point? The he made and I think the Talladega point this out. Because I told him I was like up into a raise down at homestead. Which is south of Miami I was like. Really see the flag and all that stuff out, there is like yeah, the newer tracks. You're not really going to see it. There's like you're not gonNA see it. Chicago was an example gay, but he was like the new tracks. You Not Really GonNa see he's I, but when you start getting into the traditional tracks, rival started getting to Talladega Martinsville. To Darlington right when you start to go into those tracks. He's like that's what it's going to be an issue because it's the flag is the t shirts. It's everything else like it's GonNa take a lot for them to get those folks to stop doing is they? Don't have a lot of people out. If they're really dedicated to. Making this thing, happened and ask somebody hit me onto all man. You know you're only we'll talk about this because it's a matter of race in his like is not that I only want to talk about this as a matter raised, but we all have to acknowledge. Objectively speaking right if you separate yourself from the pain that's associated with this. This is the most intellectually interesting thing that's happened around Nascar in quite a while. You know like otherwise I. Don't know what else you want me to come out here and talk about. WE'RE REGARDS TO NASCAR WITH I'm a fan of not other people WanNa get you. Hey, Ma'am! There's a national story right now and we're here. BECAUSE NASCAR got one black driver in the midst of America pretending to have some sort awakening, and they got to figure out what you do. Because a lot of the stuff they've been doing only works if there's no black people around. Now, you've got a black person around. Hey, maybe we need to rethink this whole confederate flag thing right. Okay, because bubble. Wallace is here and I watched what went on at Talladega on Monday. Me Give you one thing to note about Talladega that I did not realize honestly until this morning before preparing to do this podcast. I saw this on TV after I'd seen what I'm going to tell you, but a Paul Finebaum mentioned that the press box at Talladega used to be named after George Wass. Right We gotta take this another step further. That track at Talladega was built in large part because Bill France the patriarch of NASCAR. Endorsed George Wallace for president. In Nineteen, seventy two. Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah like that's the thing. That's how that whole track got to be there. In the first place that is a track in large part that segregation bill, now of course, this comes after the segregation and everything else, but when you win the owner of the whole damn thing decides. He's going. Put his arm around George Wallace for president. You're given a signal about what kind of party it is that you throw in because what we know George Wallace Ford Segregation now segregation tomorrow segregation forever. In that who the man that RAN NASCAR put his arm around it apart to build his track there. We're talking about right now. There's track that's at the centerpiece of everything. You gotTA understand this. If you're going to talk about all of this means for Nascar right the relationship that they have with people who do things like Wade the confederate flag. They have embraced those people. And when the time came that it wasn't really justifiable to do that. They told those people to stop bringing their flags, but then didn't do anything about it when they actually brought their flags to put this in context. Ole Miss, the University of Mississippi did more to get people to stop waving confederate flags than NASCAR deed the school. Whose Mascot is the rebels? Did More to stop people waving the flag at their stadium NASCAR DID to get people to stop waving the flag at their tracks, right? This is what they've built. And now they gotTA. figure out how to take down. They had decades to do this. It didn't have to be this, but somewhere along the way they decided that this was going to be their branding right. They decided their branding was going to be a branding of the south, but a very particular kind of south because I'm talking about a south. That doesn't have black people. And South that works hoard to keep black people away. I feel like the people who are not from the south. Don't really understand is how many black people are in the south right? The numbers have declined over the years because of the great migration, but take a state like South Carolina for example south. Carolina was majority black until nineteen thirty. Per The sense, go look that up. Is majority black per the Census Mississippi was in a very similar place there you look at it now. Last time I checked Mississippi was something like thirty six percent black, Alabama somewhere between twenty and thirty percent black Georgia thirty percent Black Texas twenty percent Black Florida I. Want to say something like twenty percent black South Carolina even though South Carolina was so miserable that used to. To be like fifty percent black. It's now like twenty five or something like that. We was getting the hell out of there, but it's still twenty five percent black like this is a significant part of the population that NASCAR and a lot. Folks like Nascar. Have just totally chosen to ignore I. Don't know if you saw it as gay but rolling stone since something out, and this is from a few years ago. Tom, petty before he died was talking about confederate flags, Tom, petty in eighty five album called southern accents, and the branding was very scattered right very very. Very confederate flag all over the place, and he said that he come back, realize what a mistake that was, but it was interesting in his first person story, talking about it petty kept talking about what it was just something that we did in the south it was it was at the courthouse. Was All of these places that that and it's this vision of the South and infuriates me more than anything else. Because the vision of the south without black people like why people want to think about what the South is that our local? They typically do while ignoring us completely, but think about what petty. Petty say it's flag was up at the courthouse, but this is just an everyday normal part of life in that is what Nascar decided. They were going to wrap themselves up in, and it's not like something. They did back in the day. As the symbols chains, the activities remain the same thing about this in two thousand sixteen. Brian France Bill Francis Son who's running NASCAR at the top. NASCAR Endorsed Donald, trump. For President. At. Four drivers come out there to endorse Donald Trump for president. Out here what you think about Donald Trump right now, right 'cause it's really difficult to talk about him because politics and all that stuff, right? However the way that I'm talking about. George, Wallace right now I can say these things about George. Wallace with no reservation, nobody minds wallace good and did right. Nobody cares about. The way that I'm talking about Bill France endorsing George Wallace in fifty years is going to be the way that people talk about Brian France endorsing Donald Trump, they are very very similar figures. In fact, you can go back and look at the states in places that voted and the George. Wallace got the nomination. Go Look at how that matches up. With a Lotta. We're trump got things done in that twenty sixteen election right? They're very very similar historical figures when you think about it, except trump obviously has been more successful than his attempt at winning things nationally. Nascar decided that they were going to be the ones do that. No matter what you think about Donald Trump I'm here to tell you black folks. See You put your arm around Donald Trump in that way. It's an antagonistic decision for you to make. It is in fact for NASCAR when they embrace Ronald Reagan in the ways that they did that was an antagonistic action toward black people Ronald. I believe in state rights in Philadelphia Mississippi in one thousand nine hundred eighty. That's how we see this, and so we got bubble. Wallace who drives for Richard Petty's racing. And by the way Richard Petty won his two hundred race, which was a very big deal who was on hand for? Ronald Reagan. Who was so excited? The Ronald Reagan showed up. Richard Pay Okay so these are all historical things that come together in this moment where all of this has happened to bubble wallace now. I WanNa talk about what happened while it's less in a macro sense than in a micro sense that I think my life experience has informed to a degree and is. Informed by the time the bubble wallace came on our podcast right and this was gives about a year ago. We had a give take. August yeah, somewhere in there, and so I wanted to have wall on and I talked about it for a while of wanting to have him on NASCAR, brought him to the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in Philadelphia and twenty eleven and I was really impressed by him, and I saw star like I looked up, and I saw star I didn't realize how young he was at the time, but I know star when I see one and there was right in. In front of me and I wanted to see how it went. And I said since that day I was like that boy can drop even a little bit just a little bit. He's going to be a giant star, and whatever told has been some hiccups has been ups and downs as he gets to this place, but now he's likely Legit Cup series driver. He's that dude. He's been getting better. He's been improving, and it comes out for the race yesterday and. His fellow drivers pushed his car to the front, and as his great picture opposite itself him, but his mask on a showing it showing himself, and he's showing all of these people behind him, and they're all standing there in a measure of solidarity with him, and it's been talked so much about what he powerful moving moment it was for him to stand there and have all the drivers in the crew. Everybody behind him. That's not what move me. It is not and I think it's cool that all those dudes decided that they would stand with him, but if we're going to be honest here. Somebody left a noose in his garage area. Hope they stand with him like I. Don't think I just as much as real like. Wow, what a big shift! This is for NASCAR. There's A. pull a knife three inches out my back sort of situation going on there when you talk about how moving, this is and I admit it infuriates me when these things happen that everybody wants to jump on so much more for the heartwarming moment at the end than truly reckon with what happened in the beginning. Right like this is the thing that just goes on right. You might not see a headline for the actual event, but the apology or everything else that comes on so Richard Petty says go put his arms around Bubba Wallace, and that becomes the lead story right say Richard did people who kneel during the national anthem need to go find another country to live. Right. And, and this is the thing about it I can't tell you so much. What is inside Richard Petty's heart? I can't do that. I don't like to get into game, but I tell you it is. He sounds like when he says that a whole lot of people who've made their hearts very clear to meet. Just divorce ourselves from that because we got a happy moment because he came to hug bubble house. We can't we can't do that. That's that's no I'm not doing that I'll tell you what to move in a moment was to me. The, moving moment was after the race what he's doing the interview and he's standing there, and he takes off his mask and he says I know. I'm supposed to be wearing a mass right now. But I want these people to see. You're not gonNA, make me stop smiling right and all of that and I think that people really dug that part. That wasn't the part that moves me. And good for him by the way that he can stand in the face of this, maintain his temerity maintain his constitution goofy hip. Part that was moving for me. was those black people who were at the track behind him behind the fence as he stood there with the black lives matter t on and seeing him cry in that moment about that, and this is the reason why that part was. What was moving from me in this is where it's informed by my experience, and it's informed by having him on the show so when we had him on a pie. I didn't really want to talk to him about being the black NASCAR truck right because I feel like a couple of things one I feel like everybody is probably tried to hit them up to talk to him about that, too. I think he legitimately does not want to be viewed in the context right, and that's a bit of an assumption that I'm making my in, but I'll always remember something. He said he said. Look Man I'm black. I might not be as some people. GOT, on black! You know you're just going to have to deal with this, and I should've asked the follow up. When he said maybe I'm not as black as some people I don't know if he meant that from the standpoint of being light skin. If you meant that from viewing it that way because his father is white, you know what I mean like I. Didn't I don't know where exactly he came from on that and for one I admit I don't always know what to say with what they call a biracial people and the reason. I always say biracial light. That is your black. Right this idea that you get to decide well I'm kind of black and white. At the same time. It's not a game where none of us decided, we were going to be black. You're black right? Your Daddy is white. You're black like that's how I see that, but I feel like at times when I do that. I could understand why somebody feels as though I am invalidating a person's experience, however that invalidating your experience as much as them's the rules, you know cops. Okay, if your Momma White. Right, We'll be half as much. It's not how it works, right. You're black. But what I heard when he said that it would seem to be pretty clear. Is that we didn't want to do. Who has been in this world of racing? Right was leave school every day to go the track. He is many days out. Imagine the only black person who is there, and he's really really good right, and so that always that becomes its own tricky sort of thing, and what I imagine. Is this dude? He just trying to kick it. You know. He's just trying to hang out like everybody is key. It's typically what to hang out in the impediment to him. Just hanging out like everybody else gets to hang out is the fact that he's black. You know this is an do. That's really look to draw attention to his blackness because he doesn't have to draw attention to what they all know at the second that he shows up, and it sounded in talking to him that that's created a lot of awkwardness for him. Now imagine for him trying to figure out where exactly he belonged, because he belongs in a race car, but does he belong at the track? And I think it can be difficult for those guys in those places where white people, but also for him, hanging out with black people right like look man scared told us he plays drums in a metal band. All right like I. Don't I don't get the feeling that that means. He's just hanging out with all these people on his own time. If that's what he's, that's where the drone plane got here right like I. Don't feel like that's really the folks that he's been hanging out with and I. Imagine that for him. He probably has a certain I. Don't know insecurities the way to put it, but wondering if he is accepted by black people, because so much of his life is anti to what we associate with being black. You know. And so. Again these are a certain measure of conjecture that I'm offering right like I know that feeling somewhat not entirely I look. I grew up in suburban Houston and all my block. We would only black people who live there, but I went to school. My parents intentionally had me go someplace that had more black people I was route NATO? Black colleges all the time like I had an immersion in blackness that was there, but also like what I'm in school I'm taking all the smart people classes. They not putting a lot of us in the smart people classes, it's just meet right, and so when I'm not in the sport people classes, and we go to the classes that a little bit more integrated in those ways I'm probably for a long time, a little more inclined to hang out with white dude, because the white dude's ones that have been taking classes with for all these years right like these are the people that I know like I play ball stuff and I'd be cool with cats and. And nobody ever ostracize me in any sort of way, but I was aware in many ways that I was not in the same places there but I always remember that my junior year something happened, and they couldn't put me into smart people classes that I wanted for some reason it, so they had put me in regular people, classes and I was there, and it was really like for me to first time that I'd really had an opportunity in school to just be like hanging out with the black votes. That were there like I. You know what I'm going to school bus and stuff like that or whatever, but this is different right and for me. It did a lot for my level of comfort because one thing I realized is. Any judgments that I thought this. Some of them might have about me. They did not have. You know I remember, too. I didn't grow up where I went to school so I wouldn't like hanging out with these cats too much school and stuff like that like I just felt like I was on this island. That's how I feel like Wallace probably feels I believe school. Go straight to the track, right? On this island I'm not with them in that way, and I remember that yeah, I was just there, it went no major thing you would know like shocking thing to change my life, but there was something for me to be said to be in this place, and at an age, especially where you looking for acceptance, and I'd always just been like the smart dude, right? That was the only thing I knew as the first time. Time I got to be a dude that was there, and I was like an l. look back on it, and that was a really important thing to me and then I. Go to you, which is if I had any of those reservations anymore? They were going to completely out the window. But you know I never questioned my blackness, but I did wonder sometimes how some other people might view me in the context of blackness. And so let's look at Wallace. WHO said I'm not as black as some people that says meet at somebody that on some level is questioned his own blast, not judging him for this right because I see, he's growing up in a very particular circumstance, but that's what I hear is someone who was questioned his own blackness. And so I see this dude any standing there. And he's got those people behind him and black lives matters t shirts. These fans that he had no idea that he had helped fans that had no idea they were his fans until he was out there and what I saw was someone who perhaps. This brought about a moment that I don't think he ever thought that he would fully experience. I think it's the moment that he realized. There while he has been hoping to be accepted in this world of racing. And that he is hoped that at some point that he's White, folks would take Kim as he is in not think of him as the black guy that happens to be there. Little did he know that as is just about always the case. You'll people been right over there with their arms wide open ready to take you. Because no matter how it goes man, and you can look around the world on as long as you don't sell us out. We got you. We know the struggle that you have. We know what is like, even if we haven't done it exactly for you, we know what it's like for you to be the one guy in that room. We know what the things are that you must have overheard. People say about you. We know that things that people have probably said to your face. We know how that feels. We know the humiliation that you're probably received at some point when you believe that. That these white people that you were with cared about you and saw you as being one of them, and then you heard the things that they've had to say. We know all those things. We know the danger that you were in on a fairly consistent basis being demand. You are in the world that you're in right. We know and we knew that there was a chance that the day will come. Somebody will put a noose and your garage area. We are the ones who always appreciated what the struggle is that you were going through and we have always been. They're prepared and ready when you needed. To take you in. When you just wanted. To take you in, and I see that picture him, but those people behind him and I see the emotion on his face, and I see a man who realized that. Whatever his own personal relationship with blackness happens to be. Blackness has a relationship with him. Blackness embraces him and his type of black, his brand of black his particular experience. We embraced it. We here for you. You can be good at this racing. You could be to do finish in last every week. We're going to have you. because. We know that you need us. dudes out there on track. Some of them there for you because they know that you need them. But a lot of them there because they know that they need him. Well need you. Like in that way. That's now what is at all. But there you stood at a track that George Wallace. Put up there because NASCAR was willing to embrace the segregationists. Black folks, even though people out here with these flags and everything else in the midst of a pandemic. I imagine some of those people never been in that track ever before didn't even know the directions on how to get to the track. And they were there for that dude, and I can't imagine how much that warned his heart and I hope for him that it helps solidify whatever there may be about him and his self image that he's been trying to make peace with. I hope for his own sake that that moment in that day solidified that for him, you could say this is a great day for Nascar no sir. That was a great day for Bubble Wallace and it didn't have nothing to do with the drivers that won't attract with him. That was a great day for bubba. Wallace, because I think that that was the day. The bubble wall is realized no, my man. You are just as black. As everybody else, that's out there. You are just as black as me. You are just as black those people who came to cheer you want. And they're going to be here with you until you tell them to leave. Please don't tell them to leave just just just just just just just to let you know about one by to cancel this, do like please don't please. Don't please don't tell US leave. These are fans that wouldn't have been there. Yeah, had last couple of weeks had an unfolded with banning the confederate flag, but I also think past that. I just don't think he knew he was. How would they know their daughters black dude? Name was Bubba Wallace. They know right at no cost to this now. Just ready for the next level of it, which is all right? I don't have no evidence. It is right I. Don't know, but I'm just saying is right now. I'll know who you might be out here. Maybe, you want to the city girls, maybe you. Maybe, what am Khloe? HALLEY's our. No, I'm trying to think of somebody else. That might work out well. I'm just saying which one of Y'all wants to be Sierra to his Russell Wilson. All you gotTA. Do is get show agent to call his agent and Y'all can make your habit. I'm just saying not now that you know we hear brother. I'm here to tell you the sisters are here to. They down. They win it. I seen what they've been tweeting about you button. For I don't know I. Don't know what it is that you into right, but I do know this. You've been out here. Hang with these white dues for very long Tom One thing. I know about these white dudes. They talk about black women. Some of them want to Holler, but they afraid to the Black Woman GonNa shut them down. That's they fear a saint. It I know what's up here I'm here to tell you bub now. Man Down they down here for. Come on, look. Look what Sierra has done for Wilson's life. Everything has changed. Russell Wilson Right Super Bowl. Yeah, yeah, that's great, but he wouldn't off our quarterback. Look at about here now. You wouldn't host the SP's. Did you know you ain't get no evidence in fact? Since people are on their journeys. Here, what are Y'all introduced? bubba Wallace to Naomi Oh sokoll. That work. That this great idea did I. Don't know man. The travel schedules might be kinda difficult. It might it might Naomi Osaka. She's going international on us. That's true. That's true I. Mean, but at the same time that maybe drive a Formula One. All I'm saying is over the weekend. Naomi Osaka was sitting by the pool, reading the wretched Earth. The Earth, the Internet Bradley now, the rest of the earth is real. If you know you know type situation, there's a time where you bought a copy of Richard and they put you put that in your file, right. She got onto it put. The earth out there, she by need to be bubble wallace to let's get this. How can we make this happen? How could we get your them up? How can we put the two of them together right slow? The Josie outs. Dude, right, we can't. We can't bring her into the party right here. Let's do that. How do we bring Bubba Wallace and all meal soccer together? How can TA quite lyceum? So it ain't going to say, but I think we can still find him a Sierra like figure the Miami Open I think the Miami Open is supposed to be the precursor to the US Open, or like right after and I don't know if the US. Open's really gonNA even be happening. Now. Let me think I'm trying to think who who else how else we can. Make this happen for Bubba Wall. It's like I don't know too much like who the people are in his age range these days. That's like really the ones for him to come hall but Y'all think Y'all think of some some some some nice young ladies do land. I really think that I can't tell. which which what happened, but I feel like that'd be great for hill did it could be outside PSA changes life? Yes, have about their hanging out with salons, allies talkative revolution stuff to him you. Going to be in the bread and black in green forty three car, it could happen. It could happen. Why because we love you, Bubba whether they treat bad or not. Now you got me check this double checking to make sure that he is indeed single out above Wallace's girlfriend makes statement after a news. Get Russell Wilson was once married. Just saying I think it's a white lady to I am not surprised. Just saying Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah, Yeah Yeah Yeah! Yeah, no, no, no, no surprise. There nose bras, there I i. absolutely one hundred percent might have seen that Covid, and that is why I'm saying. Let's get them one of them. City girls. They changed. His life totally changes life city girl Gopi here. BUBBA METALLICA tried that lightning. You know what I'm saying. You know bubble wireless. Here. Talk about Oh. Yeah. I liked that all my neck my back changes. My God did see comedy. That was fantastic. But it has to be like some type of Sierra type figure that's GonNa like open his mind yet, and also to has like maybe a little bit more notoriety than he to get him into the type of parties. We need to get both listening. Gear Up. You See Russel Wilson. Jackson all ZIP stuff like De. The other part gave you ever seen the video for Sierra Song. Call Reid who. I'm sure I have, but I have not a very long time. All I'm saying is either. She Changed Russell Wilson's life. Period. You're man. Dak Prescott. SIDAT franchise tend to gay thirty one million dollars. He went ahead and signed it. I saw something on profootballtalk with Florio was like. Yeah, well, he probably did it. 'cause you know. Maybe they were afraid to. Cowboys Might Yank the franchise tag back a similar to what the Panthers Deal Josh Norman a few years ago I don't think the cowboys were ultimately going to do that. However I can relate to Dak deciding decide that franchise tender if he so decided, and reason is very simple. I don't know how many of you of headed. Conduct any business their pandemic. I have had to conduct business during the pandemic. Let me tell you what happens when you conduct business during the pandemic. Conducting business during the pandemic. EMESA take the money that's available. Right there right there. It make your real nervous. Ain't no telling if his money now it don't mean is going to be money later. Not Everybody is ready for that sort of thing to come arousal in the midst of the pandemic that Joe, where is the pins? Somebody off you thirty million dollars in the middle of pandemic damage. You better take right like Raphael Dak wars right into their, please. Go ahead and side now this to me, though like what quarterback is a little different than the position players because the thing about the quarterback is, nobody can hit them whenever they actually get back, so none of us believe the press guy was going to miss any gains behind this, and if they don't sign a contract by to life fifteenth, then they can't sign one anyway, so there's no realistic about in place for him to hold out, so we might as well go ahead inside the tender because whenever he comes in. Nobody's really going to do anything for. I Just feel like in the last few months. Ain't nothing GonNa away. Deck thought it was going to write like debt going for his money to get his money I. Don't blame him for trying to get his money, but I think at least at this moment is learning a difficult lesson and I've been down this road before to DAX product thinking. They got to pay me. Right this I did that. They got to pay ninety, don't they? Don't they don't? They don't got to do nothing actually they don't. They don't got to pay you. That's that's not how it works. They got pay and so he's been engaged in his fight over this money fighting fighting fighting fighting for you over Jiri in twenty seventeen, when Jerry was on his thing about the anthem right, he did that just a couple of weeks ago Dak decided he wanted to do something because it occur at. Fool gave a million dollars to the. Police and maybe that's why he signed a franchise tend to so fast, and I got that much money is their franchise to man. I gotta go over the police one million dollars I. DON'T WANNA, sort trying to get it. Right, and so we got that, so that gave the police a million dollars the day before Patrick. Behold Shawn Watson where of straight from the underground young guy too bad 'cause a brown like Dax played that. That went away this, wasn't it? At all now he's trying to get his money, but he's in the middle of a pandemic bad timing. Not where you want to do it not where you wanted to go no sorry Bob all of these things. where he says it now. He's coming in for a season. That might not happen at. He's got his franchise tag. You know what gay maybe we need to find him. A Sierra what you think she could change his life. Yeah, I'll say that much I'd say it is a Sierra. He will be given a million dollars to. The police actually thought about this. That we talked about BUBBA. Wallace maybe changed his life. Everything like this. You know what I find to be funny. Every time somebody wants to talk about this interracial affection right everybody coming together using the the drew brees dat picture. You know what I'm saying and. Wallace got the black lives matter car with the interlock and it's racial debt. He's got to go. How come at eight number a picture of a black man in a white woman holding hands? How come y'all ain't never got that. You know what I'm saying. How come back KPI picture and that's all I'm saying? How come that came out picture of unity? Imagined at. A widow couple racist himself the next thing you, he come out with a picture of him and his girlfriend over front caught I think Dago. Go given his girlfriend. There's an echo of the bachelor compensation that. Week whether or not these NASCAR drivers will be able to handle that everything will go out the window. Everything would go out the window. Look a Badger bubble while arrays. He all the podium, right? They shoot share paid off it everything else he do it. He got his queen up there. Would you call your Queen Right? He guys queen up there, and what if he show that he? What true love really is right because? Let me tell you what true love do. And y'all notice the real. True Love. Grab Uti in public. Like true love and you had to movies and waiting in line to get your tickets back when we did. Those things are true love. Grab boot in front of people and she don't care because it's you is all good. That's true. Love is down right I think I remember that I have I had like real girlfriend or whatever we in somewhere and I tried to lie sneaker. Grab a booty, well you. Know we right here, right? That's what you love do what above Wallace before was in true love all stage afterward, it's NASCAR. Power Dako. Davos. Go see that's best party. People saying I turn everything into some about race is not that I. Turn everything into some about race. Is that I'm better at talking about this stuff because I'm the only one that's not a fray talking about standing on stage at a Nascar race with your nordic, queen grabbing her booty. And why can't you grab her boot? What's so salacious about this idea? What's so controversial about what it is that I M propose? Nothing at all when I talk about Russell Wilson and he ain't no longer kicking it with his ex wife down with Sierra. Everybody else talking about us, he would you talking about I wanNA say some bub-bubba wireless grabbed his queens boating right now. Eight. Oh, do I. Don't want to do now. Dodo by what to say. I'm just telling you go out away. Maybe go outweigh with it and you'd see that company here. We are at love that you will to do. Dak Prescott is a topic purely, so you can make your weight of a grabbed the bag in the pandemic which is. Probably Forty five seconds. That's all I had. Looked Mehta's coming up with other. Topics. Well we still got a lot going on with colleges. The college athletes first of all gay. Do you think is GonNa? Be Account football season. Because I don't think it's going to be no college football season I don't think so. I mean when you see. All these reports of different schools have different numbers of players pretty high I'd say yes, as like a ratio per team tested positive Yo. Yo because college students can't be trusted. They're irresponsible. Think about this, you man. Novak Djokovic, which had his little tournament Hebrew minded. Yoga has been talking about came made me take no vaccine if I don't want to all this stuff or whatever, and so they put together a little tournament, and a bunch of guys will play in the tournament, apparently went out to a nightclub and like five of. Of them caught it including job like a budget dues without out there and cardio now the idea that in these times dudes were going to a nightclub is really really stupid. I think there's no way around it like the fact that they put themselves in. That position is stupid. I'm not blaming them. Per Se for catching it but I'm saying that they took unnecessary risks and those are adults. Adults like those are real. Live grownups real money on the line and they did that and we're supposed to trust these college students to behave themselves, and and do what it is that they are supposed to do now, so they're turning up in droves with this, and in some cases like I think it was Clemson. Clemson got twenty seven players that have it, but they showed up without it. You know what I mean like like. This whole thing just feels terribly unwieldy at impossible and. It feels like the colleges are basically saying. Look somebody's GonNa have to die in order to make this happen, right or or Mega Stop I. Don't understand what I say, and I don't know dies the way to put it, but this doesn't feel safe. It doesn't and the most disturbing thing about it to me. Is the idea that so many of these guys showed up voluntary workouts now I imagine that some of them just want to get added a Momma's house. Aware it is, they've been miss their friends and everything else, but I am against stunned that there are so many people who are going I heard not once not mobile like my baby is not showing up here we. We saw trevor. Rees it just said that he's not going to go to the NBA bubble because he's going to stay and take care of his son in the course of this time, so these people that are walking away from millions of dollars. They're GONNA recess cases. Go cost them. I want to say something like seven figures to not do this right and none of these college players are doing that and that I think. Think speaks to the power dynamic is they worried about losing their jobs losing a place on the depth chart and everything else? They worried about how to do the coaches and everything else, and so they're all showing up, and now these guys catching it and I can't imagine how terrified it is for those people who do be surrounded by people who were catching it do did you see that players that Ohio State or asked to? To sign a waiver Yup, but this is a big story across the college landscape like people really jumped off on a house state about this, but the big thing that colleges have been trying to figure out in this is what is the liability that they're going to incur like it is possible that like a covert situation could bankrupt, not just a big school small school, but a big school like this thing could be huge. Waivers and stuff like that. That are going to come around here because this is wildly unsafe. Right like everybody's taking a risk because they feel like they have to take a risk to get the money, but the risk is at the expense of the players, so let's fast forward to what's going on at Ucla. Where apparently the players to say, we want an independent doctor in place. For All of this that's going on because they don't trust the athletic department and their doctors. It has been put particularly on chip Kelly now the part of this that I think is unfair to chip Kelly. Is I think every player at every school should be requesting this? Every single one right by every player is in the same situation as the kids are in a UCLA and. And they feel like they've been rushed. You know they feel like with away. Other injuries and things have been handled they. Maybe they've been rushed back and stuff like that and all of this is kind of interesting to me because chip Kelly. The guy is supposed to be i. get the forefront of sports science. They spend a ton of money on that stuff I forgot Ucla alone. Bad to get them to show, didn't it? I have forgotten here that eighty, but that's supposed to be chip Kelly staying, so it was surprising to me to hear that, and now we're starting to hear the other whispers about chip. They're really tied back to what we were here in like twenty, fourteen, twenty fifteen about the way the chip relates to black players, and what I've always said as their relationship is. I don't get too caught up in who is or isn't race's right, but I will know that chip. Kelly wants to add Carlos come to his Football Jersey. Right. That's not typically the behavior of the quote Unquote Racist. I believe I thought the Harry Edwards about this area where it's seem to be okay with chip on these matters, but what? I was told from people I talked to while that was going on then. Is that what chip can't handle is if you got like a little bit of street in? Right like it's something comes up. That makes them think about your black. It gets a little weird for and I can believe that spent forty something. Years of his life is up there in New Hampshire like he had not had any real exposure to black people. I don't think until he started as office coordinator, Oregon in two thousand and seven. You know that's not that's not. It's a lot for him like coach in Major. College football is actually not in liable what his life's work has been. This is just where the money is. Where the challenges for him and hill the way he coaches. It'd be back in New Hampshire Pretty Damn soon as is, you don't seem to be so good at this stuff anymore, but that's where he is with these players, and that's the latest. The players being like Oh man. We got demands. We got things we nick flex in it and we heard anything back from what's going on at Texas. We talking about that? At a boys, Texas went out. Out there and say look. We don't want you to to Texas anymore. SAWS, races, and by the way that thing where people like Oh. My God really the eyes of Texas little. Do you know to black students? Texas Mattel on each other for decades. Don't ever get causing an essay by the way just so you know, so. We had that at Texas. We saw what happened with Shubra Hubbard at Oklahoma. State, and those other guys and I'm not exactly sure what's going on there. We saw what happened for like five minutes at our before they got them boys to call now after all was said and done. And now we got a young man in Mississippi. State I believe his name is how to pronounce this Keelan or Kyle, and I really don't know K. Y. L. I in he'll and tweeted the governor of Mississippi and said that either change the flag or I will be representing the state anymore i. mean that I'm tire, yeah! A lot of these dudes for whatever reason have simply had enough? And maybe they're empowered about a protest, maybe they are. Empowered Kobe, nineteen, but that's his creating a different level, tinted anxiety for a lot of people. They're not going forward and I think that a lot of ways schools are still going to be able to like. Get together. It'd be like Oh. Let's have a talk. Right and they go have a talk, and then we call a bunch of stuff down. Everybody's like. Oh, my bad. You know so forth and so on and all of those things, but I am really struck by how many? Players in this day in time had the courage to stand up to these coaches who had been bullying them for decades. and. I don't even get the feeling like with this Dude Hill and Mississippi state. He's a good player. But this doesn't feel like entitlement or diva, type, behavior, impulsive, stuff or anything else. He's just like you know I'm not going to do this. supplus that I am not going to do this and those are the people in this I. Really do applaud and a lot ways. We just make these individual decisions like the WNBA I don't do enough to talk about the work that those women in that league do in terms of social stuff, but what I love about my more is waking up. It'd be like Hey. I ain't playing this year I got something better to. Dedicate myself to that people just. Can't do this right now. So that we talked about Kyri Dwight Howard where they're like I think a lot is going on outside. I'll do whatever the large group does, but I think that that that now man. If you bought it, you go, make this happen yourself right and people that are willing to stand alone like I was talking in a group text with a couple of people. and. We were talking about Kareen, Abdul, Jabbar, and how Korea doesn't get enough credit cream boycotted the a sixty eight Olympics all by himself. He himself was like now I'm not gonNA go. Now don't feel right. I'm not doing it by himself. Like that takes heart that takes a whole `nother level of your situation to make these decisions all by yourself that you're not going to do it. And we're starting to see those people, Papa and those are the ones who ultimately inspire those are the ones who make people look at themselves. It'd be like okay. Why can't I do this? And that's how you get it more likely that you get a group of people in the room because it's more of these individual things that energy is contagious. People just look. Look around, but like know why we gotta do this. Like the Mississippi thing with the flag is interesting because this is what I think happening with it I thought it least. The governor of Mississippi seems to be given a different impression, but my thing was to Mississippi is there wasn't really a push for taking that flag down I'd seen discussion, but I had. Had really seen a push and the next thing I know the southeastern conference says we're not going to give you guys championship. Even though they had to give them a championship god-knows-how-long in the state of Mississippi, and so they said we're not gonNA hold championships there, and then we gonNA statement from President Mississippi State I think we've got a statement from the. The president of Ole Miss, and then the governor says over the last several years I repeatedly warm. My Fellow Mississippi any attempt to change the current Mississippi flag by a few politicians. The capital will be met with much content if the leadership of two thousand one had not put it on the ballot. Then compensation compensation may be different, but they did and therefore. Therefore we must work together to find a solution where it went. Everyone has their say. We could come together as a family and prosper. We must work together to find a solution. Once all said and done unites as people proud of our future I've been thinking and praying hard about the best way to accomplish that over the weekend. There has been proposal floating. Floating among some of the legislature to create a second Mississippi flag, let's call it the separate, but equal option well intentioned. I'm sure it does not meet the threshold. Any similar plan would accomplish the exact opposite of our stated goal. It would actually divide our state more I don't believe it was satisfied. Either side of this debate and I don't think it is. Is a viable alternative. Now had no idea that people were actually talking about trying to come up with a second flag like schools have second problems. Right I had no clue that that is what people were talking about. However, the governor gets. This is a bad look, right? The governor understands that this is probably something that they cannot stay. The governor also understands. Understands that he is in such a fiercely segregated state, and I need explain this to you to understand the level segregated in Mississippi and a stance more Mississippi and other southern states, but it still stands out in southern states less. Do you realize how segregated is holding has to be if that state is thirty six percent black in every state wide offices Republican. People vote over ninety percent. Democrat right thirty six percent of the state is black ninety percent of that thirty six. Is Voting for Democrats and the Democrats can't win no thin. The races aren't even close. Best because all the white people voting for Republicans in a way that is not case in the rest of the country. They all along. That's the level of divide that they've got there. And so I think the governor knows this flag has to go, but also knows that if you leaders to a popular vote, why folks do it right the need to demonstrate to black people that white people are in charge of Mississippi has been going on basically prior to reconstruction, but especially since reconstruction, because there were so many black people Mississippi majority black for so long the only way white people can maintain control was through these means. That was the only way they could do through terrorism through all of these days, because otherwise, it was just too many black people that they. They played it fair and Square Mississippi would have had black leadership for over a century, if they played a fair and square South Carolina would have blacks leadership for over a century you get where I'm coming from here right? And so why people have always enlist zipping galvanized both for Whiteness, because that was the only way the whiteness could maintain power in that state, so this confederate implements in the quarter of their flag is a sign of that power, right risk the twenty first century when they decided to keep it okay, so that's a sign of that power. That governor knows that. If they put that on the ballot, it'll never come now. They know that, but I think all the tricks ole miss had to go through to finally get the confederate flag out of the stadium and the way they finally got it done was not by banning the flag, but by saying you couldn't bring the flag if it was on a stick because the stick was a safety hazard. That's how they got it done. That was how they were able to it. Happen was by banning the sticks. Because in folks, soul dedicated over there to give this impression of white people being in charge all right, that's where we are. So I think the governor. Is. Looking at schools in the SEC look man. I can't do this myself. And, I can't get this passed on no ballot, but if y'all starts squeezing us right now, start acting like this is going to mess up the football. The may be I got a chance over here to get this done, but I need you to do this. Because I can't. And they can't. Because if it looks like you're bowing down the black people. The White! House form Voltron and shut you down. But if it looks like the SEC wants this. Now people might start to listen. That's what I think is going on there. I could be wrong I think that's a reasonable hypothesis for what is happening there and so I look at that young man. He's like well I ain't. GonNa come I'm almost like ooh. They man. You Might Kinda Sorta be messing up the program not that you shouldn't stand what you believe, right? But they'll do it if a white man say to do it if a southern white say to do it. They got a chance. Black people tell them to last hundred fifty years indicate that will make them fight. You can't be on top of all the news and information of the day. No need for the social media feeds. We got you now. If you haven't heard all right. Bomani this first story in public safety. Hi, this is Jeffrey Derek I'm an editor at slate magazine. I live in Boston. Where everybody in my neighborhood is convinced that there are way more backyard fireworks being shot off than usual this year. I decided to look into this piece and what I discovered is that there has been a big spike in fireworks, complaints in Boston New, York, and a number of other cities across the country. In Boston, for example, there was a twenty three hundred percent year-over-year increase in complaints for the month of May. Now this time of the year in the lead up to July fourth that there are generally more fireworks being shot off, and does more people complaining about them. And over the last two decades there's been a successful nationwide effort to liberalize state fireworks laws with the result. That Americans are generally consuming a lot more fireworks than they used to. So those factors could make it a little tricky to parse out how. How extraordinary twenty twenty years in terms of fireworks use. Maybe it's just more people complaining, but then I spoke to the fireworks industry I learned that there has been a significant nationwide increase in consumer fireworks sales this year especially in the weeks since I wrote my piece, there are a lot of theories floating around the Internet and social media about what could lie behind that increase. The first is what I'll call the boredom hypothesis, the fireworks industry and government authorities both agree that the pandemic is a big part of this. This story, there are more people sitting around at home with nowhere to go. Other entertainment options closed. So why not explode some stuff? There's also a supply and demand theory. The display side of fireworks industry. This is the companies that put on the professional shows has been devastated by the widespread shutdown of events. Some of those companies also operate consumer, side, businesses or retail locations. The law prohibits retailers from selling pro grade stuff to the public, but there may be some opportunities to reallocate inventory or staff resources to where the. The demand is that could result in more firework sales to the public. Alas, theory is that the consumer fireworks new marketing strategies because of the pandemic for example, most firework sales happen in the days leading up to July fourth, resulting in long lines at stores one retailer. I spoke to worried that they wouldn't be able to accommodate as many last minute shoppers this year because they are limiting how many people can be in their stores at once so they're doing more early bird discounts and promotions to try to. To get people buying sooner and most of the major retailers have now started offering online shopping and curbside pickup online sales were a practice, and it was almost nonexistent before the pandemic in this industry, these practices could be helping the fireworks. Companies reach new customers. I live in New York City. Where people I've seen people be out here like a you know maybe not more fireworks. No, it's all the time fireworks all over the place and it's not like it's not like people just industries shooting off firecrackers you know like. Like you looking up the like I hadn't really paid that much attention to it, but on June eighteenth I was looking at it, and I was like Oh wow I'm a little surprised that the Bronx is going up for June eighteenth like this right? This is a different group of people with think, and then you start seeing it and is not again. It's not just like boom boom boom, going off its big displays like you see him up in the air like it would be really cool if it wasn't. Wasn't happening every single night and has led to some people to raise the question as to whether or not, this is something to be perpetrated by the government of some sort to get people used to all the noise and everything else. I don't know if that's true, but I would say what I noticed last night, a blot not too far from my house that I could see from roof I can look, and I could see like the pretty fireworks, and then I saw one block and it looked like a bunch. Bunch of Flash BANGS. Right Asia's boo. Boo! BOO, BOO! Boo and I saw like light coming, but it wasn't fireworks. There was no pageantry to it or anything like that so I. Don't know what exactly is going on, but it's hard for a lot of us to believe that in this time we're ain't. Nobody really got no money putting bread on fireworks right now. No matter how cheap they happen to be, they're asking for a lot of people and I'm very curious. How long exactly this is going to go! On the roof last night, stepping himself of your hair reveal. Is that what you're doing? I was on the roof in the afternoon, taking pictures of my hair reveal and at night I was just looking at the city. Thank you. Can I enjoy the skyline That's what I was doing. was. People love this. The second custom entertainment hi. This is Kim Lyons with the verge so movie theater chain AMC, which is the biggest movie theater chain in the world is getting ready to reopen theaters across the country next month at first the company. CEO said she wasn't going to require customers to wear masks at instigators, because it didn't want to be drawn into a political controversy while that decision was met with almost immediate pushback, and AMC has now reversed its policy and says it will require masks for all customers at its theaters. Several other movie theater chains have followed suit and also require masks. There are several big movie set to debut next month including the new Milan including. Including Christopher Nolan's tenant. So there's a lot of anticipation. A lot of bugs and movie theaters have been closed since March so they're pretty desperate for some revenue. If you're planning to go to the movies when theatres reopened, make sure you have a mask. If you don't bring one most cities will provide one for you. AMC has mentioned that it's revenue is in such tough shape that if it's unable to reopen theaters next month, it may not bode well for its future. Dude is easy. Right the idea he's like. I don't want to be drawn into something political. Do you want to be drawn into headlines of all the people catching it at your movie theaters? Like seriously. Are you kidding me like open in the movie? Theaters at all doesn't seem like a very good idea. I don't want to get caught in anything political. You just did it right in there, right? No, no! Put your mask on something and I need to verify this, but I thought I. Hear Anyway I saw something they said to barber's had caught it advocate. What city was able to to Barbara's? who had caught him between the two of them, they had one hundred and forty clients. The Barber's wore masks. The clients did not. Of those one hundred forty clients, none of them. None of them. Mike. The mask is such an effective thing. Why is it so hard for Y'all to just put a mask on? Don't see what is so difficult about this for you. Just put something over your face. We could get so far in this part of what's happened here. All look all these leagues and everything else just trying to come back right now. They had been told basically that if everybody deal with it was supposed to do and. And if we were on track the June July we will be able to start getting back to action. That's what people were told. And now we see people now. That is June or July getting back to action, except for the fact that we ain't been acting right, if y'all just ask right, everything'll take care of itself, but you've got to act right in this fool will not do a little small part to get people to act. Out Over, be caught up in politics all right, buddy, let me tell you what happened to you. This thing all calmed down except ain't nobody wearing no mass and we gonNA. Stop calling at Kobe nineteen. The week are calling. At AMC disease you go be like the new legionaires out here doing this crazy. It's not like they're offering discounted tickets or something like that. This isn't like you're getting compensated like hazard, pay or something for putting yourself at risk I think their dilemma is that the studios have figured out. They can monetize this via homes, and so they're shook and so on one hand I'm like. Put the mask on, so you keep the place. Place Open on the other hand. They're worried about telling people. They have to wear a mask and people staying home, and then never coming back because they realize that they can just watch the movie in the comfort of their home, and also the Jack Asses that'll be like I ain't going nowhere going to make me wear a mask right like maybe they're worried about them so they. Maybe there's like an additional room for this, but in the end put a mask on demand whether that man tell you to or not going to the movies. Isn't that a wonderful experience? anyways? People kicking back yard. See Talking during the movie. You don't like people very budget. I'm skeptical. Less story comes from science. This is Greg, Allen with NPR news. I'm based in Miami. For NPR I've been recently reporting on a plan by the Army Corps of Engineers. They've been developing a plan to protect Miami from storm surge. You know that's the part of a hurricane. The typically causes the most damage in the most loss of life in Nineteen ninety-two, for example, a seventeen foot storm surge in Hurricane Andrew did some five hundred million dollars in damages to an area just south of Miami so this is a huge project. The Army Corp Engineers. Engineers is looking at. It would cost some four point six billion dollars. If it goes forward, it could take a decade or more to complete right now. They're taking public comment on it. The chorus proposing building a series of seawalls along the Miami Waterfront. Some of these walls could be as high as fifteen feet in some places. Maybe cause some issues with how well you can see the water. The plan calls for pumps and storm surge gates placed on waterways, including the Miami River, which is a working river here in Miami, the core has. Has Similar plans in the works for other places along the southeastern coast Norfolk Charleston or two cities where they have plans like that going forward one major questions surrounding the project here in Miami though is sea level rise with Climate Change Florida expects to see as much as a foot and a half and sea level rise over the next sixty years. This plan takes that into account, but doesn't do anything really to address the long term flooding issues that this region may see in coming years. It could also have a big environmental impact on Biscayne. Biscayne Bay a sensitive area. That's where coral reefs are now already being stressed a lot by the traffic from marine traffic, and and other things going on in the bay, so at this point, the plan is welcomed by local officials as something that could potentially help the city avoid billions of dollars in damages from a direct hit from something like Hurricane Katrina but as I say it's a long process, a much larger project protect New York City from storm surge was put on hold earlier this year after President Trump tweeted his opposition to it. When I first mood Miami I, read story, and the story said that basically Miami hit one hundred years left. An years left because he's always bracing for the storm. That's going to shut the whole thing now I feel like looking around at everything that's happened. They did the world I mean. It Ain't gonNA happen, nowaday, go, out. Into the world now you gotTA. Start preparing in a way that you did not before. Is that also not part of what makes it enticing to live in Miami now is that it may not be there in the future. Not that's not that that that was not a draw. I will say that that was that was the appeal, but not, but the other thing we're Miami is have to do a significant amount of drainage just for it to be liveable as it is like Miami is totally synthetic everything about it. Is that right? But that's the big thing. They put a lot of water out. Stop for being swapped into. Make it into effectively. Would it is but no, no, no, no, no, we are definitely running a game on mother. Nature. The whole existence of Miami is running a game. The day four I went to Miami for the first time. I had no idea that Miami beach was basically like constructed out there on some Sanjay. Underwater if not been intervention just gets that really like this. That's the best way to put it. It's not really like this like I. think the beaches thing I think it's full synthetic beach he. We're going to be so mad when they started building up. Big concrete blocks to kind of protect them from future storm surge in his blocking their view. Lake Greg said my God people are heated, yes. So that other verge from two thousand sixteen so Miami beach is sand. That's the Subhan Miami. Each has run out of sand now. What the beach is every bit as artificial as the towers at Turquoise pools for years, the has been eating away at the shore. The city has been may as a dollars pumping sand from the sea floor. Replace it only to have it. Wash away again every half Santa. MIAMI, beach was placed there by my Gosh. Kerr. Hey this is Bomani. You've reached the. voicemail whatever you want, get creative with it, but this is your place to talk back to show back. These are the money so. From the social segment this week for opening up voicemail line, the people there was a big party that was supposed to happen a big rally that was supposed to happen this best week. Let's just say the attendance wasn't quite what people thought it would be. Is that a fair characterization? Well? Yeah, yeah, I still contend just to be clear here. I don't care how many people they thought. Wisconsin they say got tickets. Whatever was tells ain't close to know where how how how? How was a million people a million people? Go get a to Tulsa from where where would they go fly into? Where were they going to drive into? Where were they going to sleep? All of these things only fall for that if you just believed it. was talking about brother about this brothers like yeah man to tie kids. They they. They convince trump that all these people coming. I'm like as if trump did not believe already that a million people were coming. People to come in anytime he talks they didn't give fooled people to think of the party, so we thought it would be funny to. Solicit voicemails from a time where you had a party or went to a party when it wasn't as advertised the number of people that were supposed to be there didn't show up any kind of stories tangentially related to that. We had some pretty funny ones. I comes from Robert, Trinidad and Tobago. And a group of fun so having a proxy excess. All these nothing ladies. Will be there. Everybody out of four through real good.

The go two months recovered from DC. The Save Four people show up having to put out an order like that. Isn't that always the funniest thing when it's? You're trying to anticipate how big a party it's going to be. This goes for just about any party. This goes for like a wedding when trying to figure out how much food you gotta buy. Party figuring out how much liquor you're going to buy. How much meat for the Grill? Whatever and the overestimating an who gets left holding the bag, the person that's running the Errand? Yup going up ten bags of ice. Is he getting reimbursed for this ten bags of ice? Yeah, somebody got somebody I still got to pay for this stuff. I say this, though I'll tell you something that actually changed my life. It was a moment like these. Are you familiar with a reggae artist named yellow man? I me yellow man, you would know if. Joe would know but gentleman. Man was big and eighties and nineties got his big hit Scott Murderer you killed today? You cannot kill I tomorrow bird era. Anyway I went to go see yellow man.
