"Think that the regular season has has kind of a the joan because you're constantly trying to win to To get more bonus points. Everyone's trying to chase the bonus points because it's such a a big deal that's kind of the the big The big factor in the regular season But in the grand scheme of things The difference in five points in the playoffs is important. But you just gotta go out there and executed. So we've we've been a lot of time talking about each race in first round. You know. I feel like darlington. We ran well richmond. We ran well. Obviously we don't have an ideal in bristol yet but I think we can improve just a little bit on both of those tracks that we ran already in and try to put ourselves in a good position that first round. So yeah like you said. It's it's all about the playoffs at this point. William byron is the defending race winner. So what's the plan Mr william blair and fancy pants driver the twenty four car this weekend at daytona for me i'd love to get the stage wins But realistically i think that our goal is to get to the end and have a shot to to win You know that's really. The big goal is trying to get the five bonus points for the for the playoffs. Try to also get a good starting spot for darlington You know in those two things are kinda first and foremost But in the grand scheme of things. Like routing i talked about. It's not a huge deal Either way so. I feel like for us. It's it's about having fun Trying to go out there and get another win in. Continue to kinda learn some things in build some thanks for talladega. Obviously the package is different. less horsepower than we've had so i think we're gonna be gone quite a bit slower and And that's going to play a role too in trying to learn the draft and trying to learn the aero package for for the next race in the playoffs. Oh yeah i kind of just try to take the temperature on the on the draft in. What's a safe position to be in. And if i can be upfront the whole race than great but If i get shuffled back in it feels to dicey than the neon. I'll try to make it to the and william byron. What was it the fancy pants. Yeah the whole attitude with it too is fun. Good drivers doing dandy at daytona. I'm going to take this neck. Harnessing off here's disa- great sound effect. Listen to this one spot. We got her own.

He's the defending champion this race one year ago. And if you don't know what that means that means. He took the checkered flag in this very race last year. Yes so. I'm saying he won this race a year ago. I think we well established that earlier on and we'll just in case there's any confusion. William byron won this race three hundred and sixty five plus some more days ago so wait. He did burn outs after the race. He won oh and then he went to victory lane afterwards because he won so they take him to victory lane afterwards and he celebrates and then he. He changed a lot of hats and they gave them a sticker.

You can only decided but he wins in everything. He's so much talent we didn't know if it was his preparation holding him back if it was asked if it was his youth if it was his lack of mentor sh we didn't know we'll never know because it kind of all the jumbled up reset but now he's an organization with a lot of leadership.

And you know it's not there's not a ton of bump content or content. Maybe to kind of song wheel. Would i'd say atlanta darlington would be harder so no i don't think physically you do much.

"Us up on the Land parties Twitter as well which is land parties. Party's pods Atlan. Parties pods on twitter and looking at the rumor mill I saw this weekend that there are rumors that Mario Kart nine nine will be coming out sometime in twenty twenty for Nintendo switch die. I'm not even GONNA lie. I got Super Super Giddy about it. I love the Myo Carts I know that Maiyo car eight deluxe was a essentially a port of the We you Mario Kart so I'm excited for a fresh fresh new Mario Kart. I'm really hoping that these these rumors are true. Yes I'm honestly a little bit torn on this. You know this would be the first time of not mistaken. That would get to Mario cards on the same generation of hardware from Nintendo. You know what I would love Barrio card nine. I'm I'M NOT GONNA lie. If it came out this year I would be day one. Buying it The the one party that is a little bit torn on this. Is I kind of like having that one irritation of generation. I know that Mario Kart Eight deluxe was airport. But let's be honest. Almost no one bought her we you so it was essentially the new game to pretty much everybody true so I guess you know I would not be disappointed I would like I said I'd be there day one I would just be a little a little bit torn. Yeah no I understand I mean for me I'm always gonNA love our get it I if it comes out I will get excuse me. It's interesting though. Because they're saying according according to this rumor that they're going to move forward with its production because they are having their stalling out a little bit on breath wild too so that that makes me sad because that's a fantastic game. I'd love to see the I'd love to see both of them. Come out you know. Perfect time the holidays. I'm just saying intendo but we'll see we'll see what they do. As far as what that go in the fact that the they might be delaying brother. Well two surprises me. You know I am not a game developer so I know that I'm talking to my behind for a lot of this. But we know the fact that they have the assets from the original game makes me think conduction should be quicker so it makes me wonder if storyline. Something's not really wanted it to be. which yeah that could be the case because yeah you're right? They already have a bunch of those elements they already have the infrastructure. You would think that it would be easier for them to put together a second one but again there could be some back and components own and we don't know about that maybe they're experimenting with or could be story issues. I'm curious to see how that plays out. I still need to finish breath of a wild myself myself. Could I'm a terrible human being I eventually. I will finish but is good. It is a good game and I'm going to be honest. I was hoping the rumor would be you that metro pro metro-wide prime more would come out. I'm still holding out hope. That's a surprise bombshell coming out in Nintendo direct a doubted. But maybe amazing you know speaking of games and We've got a special interview for you guys this week. It's a pretty good one William Byron is one of NASCAR's and coming stars. He was there two thousand seventeen rookie of the year and he finished eleventh in the two thousand Nineteen Nascar Cup series standings endings. You know he's he's been on the rise he's been performing strongly he is going to be at or he was at the hyper. X eastport arena at the Luxor racing fans hands and media and we talk games. Obviously and we gotta take him on. So you'll get to find out if we've got what it takes to beat a NASCAR driver digitally the of course. Thanks for joining us. Talk to me a little bit about this. So then how did it come together on your end just A. It's a great event for Las Vegas Motor speedway obviously and just knowing the importance of this race and and what it means for the start of the season and kind of evaluating our race cars and team so Pretty definitely looking forward to this race and kind of We've been doing a lot of preparation nation in the simulator at GM and kind of understand what we're going to have when we get here. You know I'm sure there will be enough stress race weekend. So how was it to come out here today and and have some fun out here with some fans. That's really fun. I mean it's it's cool and kind of see this whole arena. That is back here is really cool and never seen anything like this. So it's it's a lot of fun and I'm sure Whole gathering we had kind of watching the races really well? We were first thoughts when he walked into your just just kind of amazed by how many computers they have honestly. I think each one of these computers probably about two thousand dollars. So that's that's pretty impressive. Take me back to your gaming beginnings. What got you into video games? Yeah I started as a kid probably playing the different NASCAR Games would come out and then really when I was probably thirteen started racing on I racing and You know for me just the connection that Dell Junior Hadi racing and how much that. She was promoting it. All the time I think is kind of what drew me to it And I think ultimately that led to a real racing career but that was much later so really just kind of started from hearing from people I looked up to and seeing how much they promoted it. It was always Nascar Games at the beginning. Beginning right. And right from the get-go yeah yeah. Yeah Yeah I always raced NASCAR Games a couple of other console games and stuff too when I when I was growing up. What did you learn through erasing especially that has helped build those building blocks into your racing career? I think just The format of race. You know how how race progresses over the over the course of a longer run and you know how that translates to success. And I don't know just a lot of lot of thinks that you learn from for diaries thing that can really help when you started your transition into racing there. What were your expectations going in? When you first stepped into the car and I mean what imagine? You're happy with what's happened over the years when I stepped into a race car the first time I had no idea what I was doing in terms of just getting getting the clutch to work in this. You know really honestly understanding how the fire up the car all those things were so surreal and kind of nerve wracking that I think once I got past all that stuff I was I was in pretty good shape but it was definitely I kind of an adjustment. How would it have been different? Had you not gone into gaming and if you had been led to Irish and what do you think would have been different career right now. Had I not got into it. I think I'll say it would've never got an opportunity to drive and probably wouldn't have known how to drive and how to do well so I think breath this kind of when I started just kind of had to get used to everything for the first. I know we live in video games obviously becoming more prevalent. We're seeing a lot of people. We'll make their careers out of it. Now what advice would you give for some kid that. That's a huge Gamer. And they want to do whether it's race or into whatever career they you want to do in. Yeah I would say follow your dreams. My dream was racing cars and for some people might be playing football or basketball or or gaming so I think just whatever your dream is just kind of fallen that in pursuing it. I definitely wasn't GonNa let anything getting away with my dream to race cars off on what has gained me meant to you personally when you look back on it means a lot you know. Build a lot of relationships on on the Games I played eight and definitely a lot of fun with my friends in school and Just kind of gave me something to really focus on which I think is huge having something to pursue zoo and kind of a passion to think about you know when you look at Nascar's erasing league there are you excited when you see the growth and bean involvement and the reason that. I'm pretty excited this year. Especially have my own racing team on there and having to really good drivers veteran drivers Tom And I just. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do this year. I think it's going to be a big audience you know some of the races are on NBC. And I think it's going to be really cool to. It's a kind of watch how it plays how it unfolds. Would you like to see like what. What's the dream? Is You hear him. Say Five years from now. I think it's just gonNA continue to kind of progress on a national national level and I'm kind of looking forward to seeing how how the Nascar Community embraces last question for you.

"Video games are played or should be played However my buddy Davis He made a strong point because number. One the this is going to be a rotating two week cycle overwatch. The overwatch team will be determining who will be banned. It's going to be one character from deep or I'm sorry one character one tank one. He'll and two characters on a two week a cycle essentially and then they're gonNA take the stats from that two week cycle and they're gonNA say all right. These were the most use heroes within this next there. Going going to be banned The next two weeks you cannot have a character ban two weeks in a row or a month in a row and this is also going to be implemented within the Overwatch Watch League to which I think is awesome. I think this absolutely will spice things up It'll make these meadows and this and that rotate a lot faster again. I think it's GonNa I think it's also also going to create some new problems that they may not have thought of yet and people are GonNA complain and we're not going to do what they do. but I think this is at least what what makes me excited about. This is that they listen to what their fan base is saying they. They take valid complaints. Torvald things that they think are issues and they will address them and essentially what they're saying. Hey we're going to go in and we're going to look to to speed things up a little bit as far as what Meta changes as far as with the with that flow and that there's a bit of spice you know the game. I am excited to check it out. They also put in in a clause saying hey we also reserve the right to revert back to an old version. If something isn't working out so I think it's nice that they put that clause and saying hey we don't want to hear you're from you Internet trolls because we had that rain working we go back though but I think it's I think it's a smart move by them. I think it's definitely GonNa not only spice up things for regular players people that play over watch But also the Overwatch League in watching it and the the players themselves and how they played ahead. So I'm excited for it. I think it's going to be doped. Yeah you know. I think it's definitely a needed move. I love played overwatch. That's not competitive at it but I love playing it with my brother. I mentioned in previous episode. You know that's one of the Games that we are able to connect over even over live in different countries. I I will always have A. We've fondness for this game. It will be. I think it'll be exciting. You know it'll force people not trying some elise heroes that that don't get a Lotta love so that's always fun on It will feel like if there's a hero has been dominating certain areas it will be nice just to get a change of scenery fourth people change in tactics. That will definitely be nice. Do you think though their lack of variety of heroes is hurting them overall. Not Really I think I because they come out essentially on a three month cycle every three months. They'll come out with a new character. I've been fine with that. I mean they can may bump it up a month or something but I mean really. Yeah I haven't there's enough characters and there's enough choices and different modes to play that it never really feel stale to me even though you're playing the same game doing the same him objective on the same maps. You never know what the result can do or how this team composition completely changed how you know. You're you typically get blown out on Paris Map and somehow you got able to defend this time you know it always seemed like a new experience even though it's the same game I'm fine with how they are as far as with that. I think it will bring a little bit of variety though having them. Not only that. But then you're not gonNA have people complaining about who you believe leave. You didn't ban everybody needs to pick this because it's going to be blizzard themselves and their team that are going to be choosing the the bands and then it's going to be the stats that essentially choose the next set and so on and so forth from there so I think it's going to bring a new. It's a a new twist into the game and I think it's GonNa I think it's GonNa Freshman it up a bit. Yeah definitely so. We realize their finale from last season ditch strongly a young. I'm not saying that they didn't that was bad. It got about three hundred twenty thousand eight its peak that does however pale in comparison to a lot of leagues. The exact pushing a million. Plus what do you think is missing to push overwatch league into that kind of next tier of Sports Leagues. While I think they tried tried to make that move by moving over. I don't know and I think I think we might have talked about this. A little bit on episode to them making a move and all essentially all the East sports leaks broadcast making the move from twitch over to Youtube Gaming I thought peculiar move but it also kind of makes sense. The Youtube gaming number one is number two search engine to what Google Google owned. What Youtube and Youtube gaming so that together right there makes sense percents They had that discover ability and they had the backing of Google. I think that was a it was an interesting move. I don't know yet if I could say that it. It was a smart move again my I watch a lot of twitch. I don't really watch a lot of youtube gaming streams I've seen maybe some here there and it does feel familiar l. your as far as with the UI and how you interact with people but it's still to me hasn't caught on live streaming wise That twitch which has but again you don't make these moves just out of you know off of a whim. These are calculated moves that they're making so I think they we see what the potential can be for it and I think that's exactly what they're doing is trying to address those numbers and say you know what let's move over to youtube. See if we can pull over there. Millions of millions of people. Oh and get more people to interact and watch over there so I definitely interesting move there so it sounds like you're seeing you know what over Watney didn't make some changes blizzard starting to make those changes. So you're you're pretty confident going forward that they're gonNA be right there growing at the rate you like to see them. I think so I mean we know that there's a huge fan base for this stuff. How people consume the media? You know now is the time to try that stuff out you know. I don't obviously I don't know any any of the back end stuff or whatnot but I can't imagine that if things don't pan out on on Youtube that they wouldn't be able to move back over to twitch whenever the contract runs out but I think now is the time to Kinda have those experiments see where the numbers are see. What's going to be a better fit and then I think you'll start seeing some of these leagues Break Off? Hey Save the C O D League might be pulling all kinds of Numbers over on Youtube Gaming but overwatch league isn't even pulling over the number two. They were pulling on twitter. Let's move that one back over to twitch. Let's keep cody over here on Youtube gaining gaming so for me this is the bigger nobody. You can't have have a monopoly and I. I will always see this stuff as as a positive we're introducing more competition not only on the live streaming side But how you you know where these major people that are doing. These major events You know where they're going. You're seeing major streamers moving platforms So this is exciting times in it to me. It's GonNa make everybody else all the other platforms and all the other competitors seb their games and and for me that means that we win right. So I'm I'm all for buddy exactly. Yeah it'll be an interesting time here. No I'm excited to see our pads out. We'd love to hear from you guys. If you want to share your thoughts you can follow us on twitter on instagram on pretty much any social media out there My twitter handle is at Lucas egging. You you can also find me on instagram.

The impact has been different so that go back, and they'll look at it and just make sure this was an isolated incident. It's not something that we need to make wholesale changes all the cars across the board. We had the big three last year. Right. And this year we're talking about big tube in terms of organizations. I still believe Stewart Haas racing are going to be a really strong force this weekend. I'm fascinated to see how the Pocono doubleheaders Jenna work in. I predict if that works. You know, I could see them noon that at other tracks your rally auto parts. Pit reporter on VR in the performance racing network. Rock and Roll Hall famous Led Zeppelin. Bring us into good times. Bad time five away. Rock and Roll Hall of famers cheap trick played In the in pre the pre. wait, man. Can you get up there and do a little? I want you to want. That's totally differently. Pull that off. There's been many night to AM played air guitar that yes, I'm story. All right. Good times. Bad times from the all-star race. We'll start with Alexis Alexis gives somebody that or something that represented a good time. Okay. Well, I'm not sure how we could start this out without saying, of course Bubba Wallace. We talked about him already in the opening segment. But just everything that he's kind of been going through over the past few months. You know, the story that came out a few weeks ago about how he is battling depression, all of these things. I just think he had not only did he raise his way into also race. But he finished fifth overall. So I think it was a great night for him. And I'm sure he was pleased with his performance. You know what? That that's, that's huge. But I go, I'm gonna go with William Byron and. Alex Bowman and chase Elliott those guys they were good top five top ten cars, and I did not expect to see that. I really didn't I expected to see obviously the Steuer hostile obviously, the Pinski stuff obviously, the give stuff. I just didn't expect in this format and then this race and those guys. They're more. I think of William Byron is being more. He didn't grow up running a mains and be Maine's and see Maine's and run and sprint races. He grew up, you know, an affinity card and then in the truck car. So he's a long-term player. So I, I think I was that, that's a good for me. That's a plus for me. Maybe I don't I don't think they turned the corner to be a winning winning organization as of yet on a weekly basis. But that was a big step college. Stay with you. Let's get your first bad times. Bad times. And this is gonna throw you off. Okay. I'm ready yet bad times is colors. Okay. I am thrown. Yes, unrealistic expectations. You talk be main. We talked seeming he had to race his way in do a. C. A. D. A. B. C A B to get to the a and the a ends up being a sprint race. And what's he known for sprint races? They don't run sprint races in their long-term races. And that's been the knock so are the expectations that they have turned their program around a fifteen lap race. And I say, no, I gotta see something long term. I've got to see a longer term race to show me that they got the monkey off their back now. Is that a winning team for sure is cow a linen driver? I sure he is just having stinking luck just terrible. Can't seem to break that off his back. But for me, they may have created some unrealistic expectations. I'll buy and even when we talked to him, an interview you'll hear shortly he says I've done really well in this race. Yeah, never. That's the same in tally. It's kind of. Yeah. I mean especially because he, he made mention of the fact that he's racing three different kinds of cars here this week. So, you know, an and only one of them is going to go, six hundred miles it'll be interesting to see if that translates into success for him on Sunday night, or Alexis. What you got in the bad times category. Well. Yeah. I'm gonna go..

Knock on the door. And you know, they had the muscle that horsepower. Last week looks like it's of this week with again, the top three. Three mega will be Chevy's rolling off tomorrow.

"For Doherty racing. This year, we're going to do that too. But I figured this would help it was just a joke. There's a lot. Got it. I got an also we have a driver spotlight from William Byron. So you see if it's Jimmy Johnson. It's a bonanza if it's anybody else. It's just a spotlight. I understand now. Yeah. See, that's that's my thinking. How do we rank bonanza of spotlight though, what determines which ones higher? We say. At bigger we add some echo later on in post production. And that's why it's bigger, right? So that's the one thing we won't be persimmon ass- about is the the echoing. That's good. It'll be more like driver spotlight. William byron. Yeah. Something like that. Right. So that's that's what you have to look forward to on the show now that we've wasted like five minutes of the intro. We haven't gotten to anything. So like, you mentioned J J TD or racing is gonna have a bunch of different paint. Schemes this season for both of their cars driven by Chris butcher. And Ryan Preece seven different themes all related to the Kroger supermarkets and their various services didn't know supermarkets had various services, but all right? Butcher said quote. I'm really excited to showcase our brands and a really unique marketing approach the season on the number. Thirty seven Chevrolet Camaro z l one end quote, right? And there's a bunch. Now. I don't correct me if I'm wrong. This doesn't seem all that revolutionary. This is how target that did things. Well, yeah. But this is target did this. But they would just have target on the car with light little logos. All around it. This is a total like different marketing deal seven times throughout the year. The way they're going to do this seven different months. They're doing a bunch of different possible things you could do groceries around the store, which kind of cool. I think I except for the fact that when I go to interview drivers in this case, Chris butcher and Ryan priests. I usually ask them for a liner. You know? Hi, this is Chris butcher..

"Did did a decent amount. I was surprised to see a both of those guys in the list and b both of those guys above Jimmy Johnson. And see both of those guys above some of the chase Elliott cars and Jimmy Johnson's scheme was kind of garbage last year. It was a little wasn't the best. There's nothing write home about. But you almost have to wonder if the William Byron Alex Bowman are just not nostalgia picks as well. Yeah. Oh, I'm sure I'm sure. Yeah. I think that that's a big thing there too. Yeah. Yeah. Surprise surprise. No Cal Bush. I am too actually. Because remember he was like second in the most popular driver voting. Yeah. So I mean, I'm surprised that people aren't buying his car. Price. Kevin harvick's doesn't have a couple in their. He's only got the one all the way down the Bush, beer one. I'm and only one of these skin through list right now. Only one of those cars was a in the top ten was a Darlington car. Chase Elliott in the hooters interesting. Yep. Yep. By the way. Speaking of Darlington cars, I saw one sixty four the method no car with the Jeff Burton Plum. Pretty slick made those may one of those. I saw it's fantastic. Oh, yeah. No, no Miller lite car. No, wreckage Laskey, no, joy Lugano's. But but I think the Luganda I I don't have a hard time buying that. Joel ex Nomar tricks exactly very popular driver. And yet people weren't buying his stuff. The only thing that because break Laskey neither here nor there when it comes to like say popular driver voting. But that's that's scheme is so iconic that that usually that would be enough to sell cars. I would think but you had the biggest biggest prize from me is William Byron third on that list. But I think you've paid it. I think people were buying the twenty four because that it was the exalted scheme. And so it looks exactly like the Jeff Gordon car. So yeah. And you just get it that way and and hope for the best. So I mean, interesting still picks. Yeah. I mean, it it shows where people put their money and all three of those five chase Elliott our win card. Yeah. So there's special schemes that way as well. Most of them are normal schemes Napa scheme for chase Elliott executive for William Byron nationwide for Alex Bowman lows for Jimmy Johnson credit one four color Bush beer for Kevin. But like you said three of them are the chase Elliott win cars. And then one is the chase Elliott Darlington car. I know right. They have. Okay. So if you're NASCAR, I mean, this this means something, you know, because this is more than just people's voting online because you know, if you're a rabid chase the fan of there's a chase Elliott fan club. They could go and stuff the ballot vote every day. Right. But this is people putting their money where their mouth is. And I mean, if your NASCAR don't you? I I mean, I guess they've been pushing him, but don't you up the ante on that a little bit? Don't you piss off Kabul's more by making it even more about chase Elliott now to these got wins. And you know, people are spending money on his stuff. Yeah. It's interesting. I mean, it goes to show. I would love to see. That's what it was was merchandising sales was the other one. So that would be hats shirts, everything else. Like, oh, that's that's right. That's what we were talking about before. Uh-huh. Lost my train of thought what the hell you're talking about whether or not NASCAR should should upped the ante on marketing, which aren't getting well, I mean, you can only do so much marketing to like I mean, especially now that it's back on their own..
