What AZ Senate Candidate Jim Lamon Would Do to Stem Immigration

"Talk a little bit more about the immigration issue. What are some of the specifics? Because it seems that there's been a lot of promises made. So for example, president Trump, who you and I both admire greatly and you supported generously throughout the campaign and bundled a lot of money for him. He was not able to get the Senate partners to build his border wall. Is that something that you would openly support? Absolutely. And talking with Brandon, number one is remaining Mexico policy. And really enforce it, not just speak to it, but really enforce it. Number two, complete the remaining 124 miles of the wall that we need. Third mandatory, a verify, and then forth and sanctuary cities. So deep in a policy understanding of that goes much deeper with Brandon and the guys, but helping me to understand that in depth. And it's just a fact that people are coming from around the world. This is not a humanitarian issue of our friends and neighbors in Mexico. This is out of

America First with AZ Senate Candidate Jim Lamon

"A lot of people are interested in this race. So we're airing this to our national audience. We're headquartered in Arizona, and we're talking to all the candidates and I've known you for a long time and I could speak to your character. You've been very good to us. I want to make sure everyone knows that. But there is a common theme where people are worried that we're going to get someone who talks a good game and does something different. Talk a little bit about that. That's one of the reasons why you're running, isn't it? Exactly. The quintessential example of that is who we have in the Senate now. Mark Kelly, as a moderate, I don't think many people believe that, but we can see what's occurred in his Senate time there is voting a course a 100% with what the most left want. Unionization of Arizona, open border, CRT, and just crazy things that he's doing there. As a veteran and a businessman, you can't do that in business. You can't promise your customers one thing and do another. You won't have a customer. And then other customers will understand that's not a company to be trusted. So look very forward to doing that in Washington is I've talked all across this beautiful state thousand miles a week and record audience is just great enthusiasm that guys from our priorities for the layman campaign. One, secure the southern border, that borders we just don't have a country. Number two, let's get back to America first. Not China first, like Biden and Kelly seem to have done that America first. And then thirdly, get the federal government out of our face. All these mandates and mandatory this and stuff, we didn't have that when I grew up and we just don't need it today. We get back to solid American principles, trust locally. The federal government is supposed to be fairly small. They were given a limited amount of power. I intend to be hell bent on making sure we get it back to that on the Senate

They say it's a Macron. I don't know we can believe on anything. Do you think Olympians ought to be going there? If I were an Olympian, I would be taken a deep breath before I'd go there. And let's face it, China is going to use the one tool that they have used consistently through this whole thing, which is massive authoritarian techniques.

But mayor Lori Lightfoot is silent on the fact that there have been 833 total homicides in Chicago this year, 4447 people total shot. 3663 people shot and wounded and 784 people shot and killed in downtown Chicago.

"the mile" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make

"Story. And that sorta of in that you reinvent yourself after irs records. I'm leaving records. And if i told you i'm gonna get into billy dancing. I don't think you probably would have believed that. Well i think it really was is sprung from the desert rose success the fact that we had an arab artist on dueted with staying a lot of arab artists. I guess they had heard that. I grew up limit least and could get by with arabic. The i started getting calls from big stars in the middle east saying well. Would you be interested in my records in america so i put a few out and then we were curious because they were actually selling and we wanted well. Who's buying well. It wasn't arabs. 'cause they were getting downloading it off the internet so he was american women who are into belly dancing and i thought well there's an interesting concept american women who have nothing to do with the middle east or belly dancing route who knew that this existed and i thought well if i created a show thinking of river dance which was very successful selling irish music which was not hit. You know top forty music but it was a very successful show. So i thought well if i could create a a river dance style. Show with belly dancers. Maybe that would help me sell music and that was really. The germination of the belly dance superstars who ended up doing eight hundred shows and twenty three countries around the world or something so it was successful and a lot of ways but never a successful enough to really bill. What i wanted so we finally gave it up but finally enough. It led to pentagon calling me because became the de facto anglo who anything about arabic music in america. So in the pentagon we're thinking about do we win out so minds in the middle east you know after invading iraq turns out i was the only guy could call. That could help him. So i was asked to go and tell the pentagon what to do so i became an adviser to the pentagon. What migrate moments of achievement. I would guess but who would have thought or belly dancers. The pentagon is that something you're down with. The proud of the funny thing was the. My father had a hand in putting saddam hussein in power in the first place so i the other day the podcast with tori clarke. Who was the deputy secretary of defense. Donald rumsfeld and i reminded her. I said well you know you invited me to the pentagon well. Did you know that my father had actually put saddam hussein in power. She said well we did actually know that. So but anyway i was. I went to the pentagon. And i told them what to do. Not that they paid any attention to what i said was. I don't think any of them had a clue but still it was. It was fun but there were good people at the pentagon. I must have i. I was kind of impressed with the fact that they wanted to do something. Good and tori clarke later came through. She got me a pbs special on arabic music and we succeeded in one of the things that i pitched to. The pentagon aljazeera bought this documentary. We made about americans working with arab music musicians and proving that really under under the skin..

That's go forward dot com just just sort of relating to that i mean. Do you think that there are any any lessons from that. That can be applicable to the us market just in terms of the of the retail presence. What you're seeing either the two markets or any similarities or differences. You know maybe you can call me a little. Bit old fashioned. We believe in being in being a little bit paranoid paranoid about you know making sure we know what we know paranoid about. Well we don't know and anytime you see stop races or moves. That look irrational. That's just something to draw your interest in. You know you've got to do a lot more work again on the on the technicals on the positioning on the expectation. To before you can become you know be prepared to come in and fade some of these moves and listen if i had one recommendations for people. It's a not dismiss. These flows to understand what that's you about market participants was that telling you about psychology and there should be humble about it and say like okay. When i'm on the other side of these trades. Or i wanna take the other side of these trades. Because i don't think you know. Amc Is worth its current market. Cap will guess what the people buying. Amc have no opinion on its market cap so my assessment of coming in looking at the value of amc on a market cap relative to earnings power. Which you know maybe as how we think it should be valued. It's just not relevant so you just have to have this inherent paranoia or skepticism that there could be something else driving stock price performance and should be cautious about it. Kevin i was reading about it was the first half of last year. You guys had a really strong run. than during the pandemic. And what are the things. I thought was really interesting. Was it sounds like he did. Some para trades where you would short the stocks of some of the companies getting really hit hard by the pandemic but then go along the credit of the same companies and to me. I mean it makes total sidled thick. I granted. I don't think i ever would've thought of that at the time. But it makes total sense given the dynamics at play at the time with the fed basically saying he was gonna backstop the credit markets. Another big story this week. Obviously is is the fed saying it's going to sorta unwind its credit holdings and it was really i think more of a psychological effect on the credit markets than a sort of dollar for dollar impact from from the fed. Did so. I'm just curious how you're thinking is was that was that sort of a a fleeting once in a lifetime opportunity to do that type of thing amid the pandemic or you know our credit markets such that you would. You would still think of doing that. Type of trade in this environment a year later. Yeah so the the the opportunity in april of twenty twenty in the us cried mark. Credit markets was historic You know really. The only good analogy. I think is is the global financial crisis in particular when the fed came out and went the extra mile to say they are going to support the high yield market. We were staring at each other like. Can you believe that data exactly and and there was a time where the market didn't react right away and we were staring at each other like this is a really unbelievable. His story and special opportunity in the end the most unique thing about it is that you know normally you see that sort of news and then the market squeezes squeezes up and you have a hard time buying anything. You're like okay. Well i i just missed it. But what happened for really the entirety of the summer because of the economic conditions associated with covert were sosas ear actually had a bunch of companies. Who had come out and issue high yield investment grade or convertible debt. So not only did you have this dynamic where there's dead was supporting the credit markets. Listen i i always help you like if you had a wish list of you want for the holidays and you ask for their fed. They gave you all those things and he's like. Oh by the way we got a new car for you the dry so so you had everything you could possibly have wanted. But then there was a ton of issuance so we could go out and buy a lot of high yield investment grade and convertible bonds. So not only were. We able to benefit from the from the fed policy action. But we were able to benefit from corporates issuing in retrospect was incredibly cheap paper to shore up their liquidity to operate over covid crisis. So i mean. I'm trying to imagine how that particular fact pattern repeats and i really can't knock on. Let's hope let's hope not. Yeah i feel a little. I feel a little bad because it was it was without a doubt probably the most compelling investing environment that that i've seen in You know really. It really only comparison the global financial crisis in terms of the opportunity. So it's it's hard to imagine you know it's it's ever liked that again but but listen. There are and this is part of the reason why investors like ourselves who we invest in equity markets and credit credit markets globally. All day everyday not. Everybody does that. And so you can have situations where people are you looking. Laser focused on the equity market or the credit market. And there are missing the dynamic. And you know probably one of the you know. We had some some credit positions that that really benefited from from some of this retail participation because as these companies stocks rally they were able to issue at quickey. There was shore up. Their balance sheets improved their credit. So it's just a a really a a perfect dynamic to be long credit and short equity yet. And i wonder if you got a sort of be in the right position to take advantage of it. You know if you're If you're getting margin calls you're getting outflows and all that. It's some opportunities for a lot of people. Just had to skip them. I imagine yeah you just our philosophy is we just were never that confident So we're just never going to go into a situation over levered We're always gonna keep dry powder and we're always going to. We always manage our betas very tightly again. We're a relative value funds so you know when there's a market drawdown we're going to be massively outperforming. It beta indices in generally investors are going to focus on their their beta investments. So there there are confident that we're going to be able to ride through those sort of events and capitalize on some of those dislocations so when you have a long term stable capital base and you're prudent for maintaining some access margin. You can come in and take advantage of opportunities.

"I have had these conducting thoughts in my head and things that i've been wanting to write and talk about for so long and i thought you know. Why don't i sit down and actually start doing them. So we're doing an experiment this month with these small short episodes of podium time the opposite of our long-form interviews. It's not two or three people that's just me going through some stuff so today. We're talking about your ten thousand mile checkup. This was a point. That came up in a recent episode. With damian crutcher. Daming was just a joy to talk to and one of the things we came to later in the episode was having ten thousand mile checkup for your conducting damian had studied. He did his masters with robert reynolds. And about but twenty years later. He did a workshop with him. And after just a couple of seconds on the podium. You know damian. I'm sure he looked great for the audience and for the band but after just a couple of seconds h robert reynolds says nope. This is not you. Let's go back to you. And that's when damien we all need we all need those reminders. Sometimes so our ten thousand mile checkup is basically. You know this is necessary when we've been out of school for a long time like we all like most of us have been. It's when we haven't had a lesson. It's when we haven't hit a workshop. It's when we've been show into the weeds of work without the space to step back and get a good look at what we're doing one of those habits looking like what's our i don't want to go into the into the nitty gritty specifics of beating. But are we clear. Things crept in for. Some reason is gonna be important thing especially if you've been in the field for a while especially if you aren't taking lessons especially if you don't have somebody more experienced than you get nanya every little bit for the things that creep in so these way the obvious way to have a ten thousand mile checkup on your conducting is to get with the teacher to go to a workshop to stand in front of an orchestra and be have some have. Have somebody be looking at you with a critical eye with the intent to improve. That's exactly what an orchestra is. Or what a what. A workshop is four or lessons bring a video into lessons. The point is to look at what you're doing with a critical eye with the intention to grow with the intention to check up on what's been happening and see where we can improve. See what we can tuneup. See where we can get. Your oil changed a little bit. What can what can we focus on. So the obvious one is going to a workshop and A lot of professional conductors are not going to be going to workshop but you could also reach out to a teacher. Reach out to somebody you trust. Reach out to a previous teacher..

Sitting near diversities, patently personality difference also some people have soccer social disability so that you know your.

I'm a big advocate by that, so I do like do talks the people on teaching them a new way to look at things. And I widely distributed checklist stuff. Go for gender neutral communication.

Yeah, and she just fed up with it after six months and said look. I'm gyn but. I'm telling you. You should take the job. He said. You're already doing the job really anyway and just give it a guy these, Tom. It's a heading. She said that you went up for you with. Siri saying if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be I wouldn't have felt up. Forever grateful for that opportunity. Then so really in the end day. So I guess we're coming to you A. Lot while I. DO I want so in some of these agencies because always say young with such a responsibility. I was really looking for a stretch, and I didn't want to be in this job for the hall of my life I was caught ambitious, and so I saw myself on the board wine and running a company..

It's all about US lifting up the women around us. High and I'm really really excited. This is the first of the. She's the boss. PODCASTS and I'm just really excited to be having you as my guest. So everybody I'm very. As I've said three times now excited to have an miles with me. And owns her own business is a female fan and is really one of my. One of my heroes, because she really really knows, his stuff tackles this nerd, which is the opposite of what I am obviously i. That is rather than non check. So okay, so the first thing is an welcome. Thank you the over here great to have you here. Now tell us a little bit about Your Business Yes, I have a business that has fun time to start way. It's cold sits and sneak. The sneakers! Sets. The seats are strategists and smart. account directors in. People who just get things done in marketing and advertising, and the snake is creative tick and production people right, okay, so that sort of makes sense and so want. Is it since acres to yeah, it's a really ECLECTIC lots are there? There's nothing in marketing marketing that we can't help with. into in a very big big Cole road is anyone. So it's pretty much, stuck anything from researched brand strategy marketing planning. Digital Strategy. Route three to creative concept. Just getting campaigns done. Just. The sites I guess because I was. In. Deep dark past I think. What was it a counter to for graphic design companies? He and then in London were mainly in London and then here actually the other way around, but I it's IT'S A it's A. It's a skill I think that's that's quite specialized to be able to manage a project and Kate within budget, and I'm going to also manage the creatives and keep everyone happy. It is actually a really interesting job I. think that's. I enjoyed a lot over the years I started in production. So that's basically project management and these one foot in. The maximum science and getting. The other half is very creative. Eleven, so so you've set up this company that can help any business. It doesn't matter what size they are. To sort of like an outsource, the marketing department, or on a project basis, or no, you suddenly realize that you've got too much work on, and you need someone to come and help you, and you can grab dominates all around marketing and advertising and creativity, and all those interested. In case, people don't know so. So you've got suits and snake is. I'M GONNA. Ask you in or a little bit later. I'll ask you about your grand plans because I know you've. Let's start at the beginning. Why did you set it up? It's funny. Y. Yeah I think. If I am be honest. I just actually got really pissed off fake. Sounds Fair enough. Industry as Can Be very stressful and and pity off three.

"And they had been before with two ninety three, or whatever the next run the they say the third and final run, but. I think there was a fourth run I. Think there was another one's stuffed in there somewhere? That maybe didn't go so well that they didn't even report the third and final run. The they're claiming is the third and final run was the one that they re. They finally reached the three point four mile per hour mark and I'll tell you this. I learned this along the way, and this is so impressive to me, you know. We talked about the difference between quarter Mile Half Mile and full mile at the half mile mark on the three hundred mile per hour run. They were already going to hundred and forty miles per hour. And a half mile, so that's incredibly fast already they're already topping. What a lot of cars doing the full mile at the half mile, and then not only that they gained sixty miles per hour in between the half mile, and the full mile, and to gain that I'll I'll tell you in just a minute why that is so impressive to me, but to gain sixty miles per hour in that in that relatively. Relatively short amount of space and I know that time doesn't come into this, but we're only talking about a run that you know from beginning to end is like maybe twenty two seconds twenty one seconds somewhere around there. That's the full length of time. It takes them to go one full mile so really really impressive. I mean it's just unbelievable that they were able to do that, but but again it took them. Two Years of Engineering and refining and changing things around to be able to get that extra seven miles per hour out of the vehicle. And you know they were just working at it all the time. You know trying to really amp the sing up to get it to You know that three hundred mile per hour mark because that's a huge milestone for them. They're always going to be in the record books as breaking that. Yeah, and doing that, so that's kind of infamy for them. In one interesting thing to me is that it isn't necessarily I mean. It's a race car, but it's not necessarily a purpose bill dragster type car. No, it's a say standard. Two thousand six four GT. Standard Right. What I'm. Is the. Body, itself is not engineered like a dragster. Would No, it's IT'S A. Car In so therefore it has these built in limitations overcome such as holes for The production car would have for cooling and things like that. Yeah I would even imagine tire width I. Don't know if they mess with anything like that I. think that they had to the I want until you just a little bit more about the car itself you know about the about the engine and just a tiny bit more because I don't know a whole lot about it just a little bit, and then I want to make this comparison between the production vehicles that are trying to achieve three miles per hour, and then what this company has done. In. The car that's hitting the air is basically the Ford Gt. It's not designed from the ground up to go fast is it was built upon an already existing car? I'm block is I think. A stock engine block is? That to me is cool, because it's not completely custom exactly not completely custom modified as it's modifying I. Think is in a tasteful way. Trying to get. The car is a classic yeah. Oh Yeah. It's cool to see this class cargo three hundred miles an hour. Yeah, it is I. Mean it's it's You've said a mouthful here. I don't even know where to begin. It's fascinated me that they can take that design and push it to that extreme. We're talking about the BUGATTI. On the just the production car, the three hundred miles an hour. and. It was designed with this in mind. The body reshapes itself at certain speeds doesn't happen on this car. Yeah, no! There's so many little nuances to what we're talking about here and I know we're not going to do it justice by having this. Maybe we can have a different discussion I. Think we should someday about these modified versus production car requirements, standards, whatever the arguments against and four, and all that I think there's a lot there that we can talk about a ton and no, we've already mentioned a few, but yeah, when you start talking about like tires that have to go three. Three hundred miles per hour, you're not going to go down to the general tire store and pick those. No, it is extremely sleek looking car. You know you look at the The two thousand six four GT and it's it has the appearance of a race car really does, but it's not a custom built dragster. It's not a Carlos built to go three hundred miles per hour i. don't know what I I'm going to spit ball here I'm not going to even. Even be in the know the actual number. Let's say the car was designed to go one hundred ninety miles per hour. That was the top speed, and that's what they thought would be maximum on this. They didn't test the aerodynamics beyond that for this thing to take off in the air at a certain speed. Because that's what happens, you know when when you mess around with the mix of a vehicle you know I it becomes a wing. It'd be you become airborne. Airborne at a certain point I mean smaller planes, and it will large airplanes can fly at these speeds and do fly at these speeds so keeping the car on the ground is a huge issue. There's so much that goes into the cars and the modifications that they have to make in order to do this, but a couple of things that M. K.. Two more sports did to the FORD GT to keep its stock if you WANNA, put it that way and I. I'm laughing when I say this. Because when I read this next paragraph I am reading from an article that came from a site called the drive, and it was written just after the record is broken on March, twenty fifth of two thousand nineteen. If you want to go and look at this article, you can do that on the drive. It's all about the three hundred point four mph run, and it says that I'll. I'll just read this one. One paragraph directly here, but it says will the M to K..

"Benjamin and I am Kirk Garin. Oh, you gotTa Kurt Great. Guard. Run over to the MIC from the from the computer y'all there couldn't see that fantastic law your quick quick on your feet. Good work. To catch you off, guard or decide or GT? We're about to talk about. Maybe right. Right so. Here's the deal all right. The current record was just broken recently this now, this is were doing this podcast in two thousand nineteen. We are in between events in two thousand nineteen, so there's already been the march of Twenty nineteen event, and there's going to be the October two thousand eighteen event. We're doing this in September so right before this, and it's always the last weekend in March and the last week in the knocked over. Yes, if you want to plan for it in your in your schedules, or you want to look up, you know maybe a time when you can travel down to the Houston. Houston area and maybe catch this thing live. definitely do that I mean it's a worthwhile thing you could go to. You know I'll give the the websites you can go and look at it. It was it Texas Texas mile down. Yeah Texas smile dot net was the site so check that out. If you want to again, we're not selling tickets or anything, so it's just an awesome event. Do It if you're in Texas. Do you want to I? Don't care either way I. don't care either way if you go. Yeah, I mean I. Don't mean to be flipping about it but I don't i. don't care. You like to go to go. I personally would love to be there and witnessed. One of the has I. Think it just. It's just awesome. been there last March. Yes, okay, so last March something incredible happened right right, okay, so what happened well afford gt broke the three hundred mile per hour. Mark Thriller Texas Smile Three Hundred Miles per hour now. It's three I. think the actual record, and just it's just barely above it. It's three hundred point four. Yeah, okay, three hundred point four and I know that's Nitpicky, but when you get to those speeds, that's going to be important matters. Yeah, because someone might go three hundred point five next year, and and that will matter to ninety nine point nine. Three hundred. Solid. Record? That's held at the Texas Texas mile and it's by a company that built this car specifically for a customer that wanted to do this or air for them so I. Don't know if the cells are customer, not sure but yeah. The focus is always been on the company. anyways. The company's name is M, two K motor sports and the car. itself is a is a first generation. I I shouldn't say I. It's a version of the giants, the Ford Gt that was put out back in the mid two thousand, and so it's a two thousand six four GT, not the current one, not the not the four hundred thousand dollar one, and it had a Gulf livery which I think is really cool. You know the blue and orange. The number on the car is significant number on the car just by. The number on the car that they ran. This year is to ninety three to ninety three was their previous record that they had made back in I. Want to see those two thousand seventeen. Yeah, seventeen exists so the two thousand seventeen is when they ran two hundred ninety three miles per hour, and they were thinking like a we are so close to. This were really really close to and I saw. An interview that was done by the owner of this company on a local channel. It was it was done on tape. The interview, the owner of the shop, and he said you know back. When we started this whole project, the goal was something like two hundred and thirty five miles an hour. That was like the record, and that's what they wanted to beat. They WANNA two hundred three five. He said three hundred miles per hour. Is it was never even a dream at that point, but as the? The years progressed. They decided that we've got to keep up with you. Know exactly what's going on and keep up the speed with the current records, and and we tune this and tweak that and reengineer this part, and make this a little more dynamic underneath the car, or you know whatever they did a lot of work on the vehicle, and I I'm I. Know I'm just paraphrasing. Paraphrasing the Senate in a horrible way simplifying what they did exactly, but the they brought the car back just two years later, and they ended up topping three hundred miles per hour, and they did it. Oh, in a series of of several runs and I, kind of see it as as I think the Texas Mile, people have confirmed these were kind of like shakedown runs. Runs for them. They knew that they could get close to three hundred or three hundred. They were hoping for it of course big celebration when they did hit it, but the early runs were nowhere near that speed. The early runs were relatively low speed, and of course they weren't sandbagging. Because there's nothing nothing to be gained from that, but over the course of a three day weekend. Iran and I think I WANNA say it was four runs. The first run was something like one hundred and seventy five miles per hour somewhere near there the second run. They really they've amped it up at this point, two hundred and forty miles per hour in the next run, and that puts them already an elite. Group I, guess because. That the two hundred mile per hour. Club is a big deal at the Texas Mile. If you can get your car to go two hundred miles per hour. That's that's pretty impressive by any standard. Really I mean I think it's cool, so they're already in that..

"It kind of makes sense for electric I guess to be the fastest because it has instant torque like every bit of the tour is available. The second you push the accelerator, however I'm surprised that they're measuring zero to sixty speed. That must be just kind of their own thing. Probably yeah, but the top I think I know which one you're talking about the This is a this is an older car that they've retrofitted with. These model Mustang, a sixty, eight, sixty sixty Mustang fastback, and they call it the Zombie to twenty two and I. Wonder You know because they called the to twenty two. I wonder if that's their goal. If that's what they're shooting for, that will actually has the electric vehicle speed record in the in the Texas Mile at one hundred and seventy eight miles per. Per Hour and it did that back in March of Twenty fifteen and it hasn't been beaten since Hundred Seventy eight miles per hour is pretty darn impressive for a six to think about the Air Amex of a sixty eight Mustang fastback imagine pushing that up to one hundred and seventy eight in just one mile I mean that's that's impressive. That's impressive part. Ten Miles maybe you could get it up to that speed, maybe you know you have to have a very to do it all the testing and everything you know to go along with it but I think the one mile. Thing is probably the the most important or the most I don't know. Maybe the most important number in this whole thing. Ever run the Texas kilometer. Think! No not in Texas I think he gets shot. If you even if you mentioned the kilometer is Texas, but you know what we should. We should say this though and I know we've been just doing miles per hour here because we're a US based show, but I guess for anyone who's interested the top speed if you if you're talking about going three hundred miles per hour, three hundred miles per hour or something like four hundred eighty three kilometers per hour and the distance we're talking. Talking about here would be if you're doing for your get into vehicle to four hundred eighty three kilometers per hour in just one point six kilometers of roadway. If you want to look at it that way, so it's those are the types of distances and speeds. We're talking about if you've been confused by the MPH thing, or you know having to go to your your conversion chart and rapidly you know punching numbers before we take a break. I want to say one more thing. And I only want to do this because I don't like to end on a sad note. And I think we should talk about something a little bit sad. What was said, but it's not breaking. News said I guess it didn't happen just now. Something a lot of people probably already know about, and we'll come back with some happy news in just a moment, but one of the guys that we talked about in the previous podcast in the car stuff episode in Two thousand twelve. We were talking about him. Just breaking the record you know he had. He had just achieved a a record of something like two seventy eight point six miles per hour at the Texas mile and he was a current record holder he's he was on motorcycle. His name was Bill Warner course. We're talking about him. In the present tense. He was still around doing what he was doing, but unfortunately Bill Warner died not much later the very next year in a motorcycle accident doing of course doing what he does is or what he did. which is you know Jeevan land speed records, so he broke the the record again he broke the the three hundred mile per hour barrier in two thousand eleven at a different event. I believe and then that is when actually you know what that's when we had our podcast right after three hundred eleven, so we were. You know nine about the you know getting past three hundred eleven miles per hour on a motorcycle on pavement at that time, and against some specifics that can go into in just a second, but just after that in July of two thousand thirteen, when when he died again, not breaking news by any means, but I think that we need to mention it because you know the the focus that we had on him in the first podcasts we did. Did this bike at the time that he was writing at something like six hundred fifty horsepower on a motorcycle, it's a High Busa and they call it a conventional motorcycle. You know where the the writers exposed. It's traditional motorcycle I. Suppose however when you look at it. I mean it's modified. Because it did have a turbo did have panels put on So it's kind of like a street modified Haya Busa with with a turbo streamline. Our record is a lot. Lot Faster. It's like another seventy eighty miles an hour faster than this was. So you know once you enclose? The rider becomes much more aerodynamic, but this he was an open bike and again he passed away I believe it was in July of two thousand and thirteen, and it was well. He's trying to break Break a record in I think he was in Maine only forty four years old, but we've heard of land speed record people. That's how they. They die they kind of know the the risks and the dangers involved in that and they accept that and Sorry to hear that you know He. He passed, but I figured we'd. You should just mentioned it. you know the that somebody who lost along the way I want to get into some happier news. Let's Let's let's finish up by talking about the current record holder at the Texas smiling just a minute after we take a break. And we're back in on your host Benjamin and I am Kirk Garin.

"That's the the they're measuring is just the speed at the time, and that's unique in that. If you're going for a top speed run typically like if you're out in Utah on the salt flats, or you know any desert, run or anything like that we've talked about the thrust S. a. c. and you know the land speed record attempts. Will probably talk many more times about stuff like that, but they have the advantage of having this kind of ramp up. I guess a long long run. It could be miles long to to ramp up to the speed, and there's like a timed mile. And then they have a long way to shut down well. This one is just that mile, so you don't get to start at one hundred and eighty miles an hour, and then try to get to two hundred and fifty miles an hour, if to start at zero and try to get to two hundred fifty miles an hour. In that short amount of space, the speeds are measured along the way, and and displayed to the spectators, so there's great big boards that have led readouts that show the speeds at I believe it's a quarter mile, and then another H- a half a mile and And then they give them the final mile speed I don't think they bother with three quarter mile speed if they do. I haven't seen it. In any of these videos one of the things that strikes me as like. Even the the quarter mile speeds are about you would expect from a dragster like you watch you watch like the you know the private teams it drag strips, and you get about what you would think out of that. The half mile speed goes up considerably I mean they're going really really fast a lot of Martha's point. Then you have the mile speed and what's. which shocking to me a lot of times is the difference in speed. As you said this to me off air the difference in speed, you would not expect it to jump up so much between the half mile and the full mile, but it does. Will even between the quarter mile, and the half mile I look at it as the first quarter mile. They try to get the car to hook up as opposed to a drag race. You wanted to hook up right away. Yeah, so the first quarter miles kind of getting everything stable, because you're going to start going much faster in cars that aren't necessarily designed to go that fast or at least from the factory, so they're not so I guess of the point I'm getting at is from the half mile to the end. That's when they're really applying the power and trying to keep everything stable and just. Simple interesting how how how much you could trying to hook up all that power to the pavement, and a half a mile is interesting to watch that increase, and so I agree, and and what we're accustomed to seeing from the production car speeds when we watch, these record attempts from whether it be Bugatti or Lamborghini, or whoever is running the Air Ferrari or any of those run with these top end speed records or Kona Sager. Those once you get to certain point at the in those cars, they relatively slowly increased speed after about I think it's like after right around two hundred miles an hour, Starting to get a get a little dicey. Yeah, well especially with. Between two fifty and three hundred mean super incredible again watching one of the one of the production cars do it attempted in a very professionally made youtube video. You know that is done in Germany and again I'm going to get to it, but we kind of already talked about it at the guy says in this is the way he put it out. Paraphrase he says you know. Know a lot of people or most people will at some point be able to achieve one hundred fifty miles per hour in their life on a car. and I. Don't know about most but Liden again. This is the guy from Pisa German race car driver, so he probably has a skewed view of what people can do on the. Let's say a few people gonNA. Go One. One hundred fifty, but he then he says you push it a little bit more than one hundred and eighty miles an hour, and that's a lot different than going one hundred fifty miles an hour. There's a big difference and you wouldn't expect it. He said if you go from one hundred eighty to two hundred miles an hour. That's like a whole different world. They said like it's. It's it's something that you only can get through experience like you don't know what that feels like. Until you've done it And then he said once you go from two hundred miles an hour to three hundred miles an hour. It becomes like this ridiculous. Just I don't know just a mess like it really messes with. Your head is what I mean like it's it's not. Things that aren't aren't happening. When you you would normally perceive them to happen, it's it's much much faster and it just doesn't make sense to your brain. You can't even comprehend what what's happening because you know. Everything is flying past you such a great rate of speed and know we're not talking about being in a desert area where these runs are made. These production car runs made their made on track in Germany that has trees near it and guardrails, and you know cameras and everything all over. Over the place it's an lines on the road. It's a lot different. You get that real sensation of speed getting back to the Texas Mile. It's not just cars because we're just talking about cars right now. It's It's cars. Sports cars motorcycles. It's trucks purpose built race cars that come out and do it and electric cars electric cars. Yeah, there's all kinds of category they have. This electric car is the fastest I need to make sure I phrase this right 'cause. I'm sure there's nuance. Don't Miss.

"Garin well, we've got one today that I think is going to Pique your interest, and hopefully the interest of a lot of our listeners as well. We're GONNA. Talk about a very specific event very It's kind of I think it's a one of a kind. I don't I've never heard of an event like this any other place in the world. Really it's. It's different than a drag race, but it's called the Texas Mile and has a lot of similarities to a drag race, but this is a unique competition of speed, and in it's worthwhile for us. Dig into this and I i. do want to tell you hurt just so that you're not not taking off guard by this, but we. We have done a previous episode of this. You know this archive goes back. To two thousand eight and back in August of two thousand twelve, we did a an episode that really was kind of the INS and outs of the Texas Mile and kind of one of the it's all about, and where it was and everything and the record holder that were you know the current record holders and how some strategies? I guess to to get the best time and whatever we just had. had a whole bunch of time that we covered in there. Of course, all of that's changed now since since two thousand twelve and seven years later, you can imagine that not only as technology growing leaps and bounds since then you know the guys building the cars are are learning a lot more, and they're and they're. They're going faster and faster every year. There's been some notable events that. Things, I guess events you can call it events, I guess that happened and There's even but a change of venue since then I mean it's just just real quick I want. I'll be honest with you. We're going to jump into the topic a little bit later. There's a little bit of other stuff that I wanna to talk to you about before we start here, but I wanNA talk to you just as just a second about what you what? What's your gut feeling about? The the Texas Mile I mean just just like a general when you first heard about this initially I compared it to drag race but as I looked into it, a little bit more I drew vast differences between this particular type of racing and drag race. First of all, it's time trial type setup. To cars aren't competing against each other. It's more like a qualifying event. A drag race would be more than a head to head race, but what I mean getting. We'll get to the specifics. But but getting to like specifically what you thought when you first saw like maybe a car going I'm going to say I'm above two hundred miles per hour. That's not the record by the way we'll tell you what the record is later in the show, but Let's see we. saw a car achieve two hundred miles per hour in one mile from a standing. Still I mean that's it's. It's crazy, isn't it? Is Crazy I'm used to seeing drag races and a quarter mile very different types of cars. Yeah, it's not. It's not over in a few seconds, so there's a lot of factors that come into play. cooling is one of them. Yeah, How we saw some interesting cooling tactics didn't yeah. Normally they would cool the car with air flowing through holes in the car. Yeah, that's not the way to go fast. He WanNA. Make the car slick as possible so there's other techniques that they use the cool the engines down. That's a good way. Way To put it. I like how you said that because like you can't have a ton of openings invents and I guess full face of a vehicle, the normally would have trying to minimize that because he's are modified cars. We'll talk about and there's different tactics that these racers employees to go and do what they do. These well. It's two weekends a year and again all this. We're going to get to I promise because the Texas Mile is is definitely an interesting and unique event in in a lot of ways and you'd see. My notes are crazy again today. I, I have a pile of notes in front of me, and and for new listeners or listeners. are familiar with with my notes. System I. I'm very analog before we begin. Kind of banged up front bumper. My car and it's GonNa crack in it right now so I'm looking to do something that's called. The term used for it called the drifters. Think, it's called the drifters stitch. Is that with ZIP ties? Is He seen that before? Okay? Yeah, you know what it's surprisingly easy to do, and surprisingly holds well in really well I've done it already on this repair just in a minor way, but I did it in a a very not haphazard I mean it looks good. You can't even see them hardly the there. It makes the makes the crack in the bumper disappear. At holds everything together.
