"Back to. Out Loud what he came and we don't often have actors on the program, but this is a special occasion. Last weekend at Talladega superspeedway, the sponsor was unhinged as a new movie starring Russell Crowe. The unhinged three hundred in the series. You may have heard his command to fire the engines. It was something to behold I had a chance to catch up with Russell in Australia or is he says in the Bush to talk about his new movie and his love for racing that he got from his brother. Check it out. I originally had read that you were reluctant to do this role, because it focuses on road rage, which is kind of appropriate for a NASCAR race at Talladega, but what drew you to this role? I think mainly because I was. Afraid of it was really saying. As a story. To You know to enjoy the population that the moment doesn't seem to be able to. Control all the feeling of of hopelessness looking to express that me. See it all the time. The Mama. Shootings and such. And this is that sank on across. The where the weapons the? Russell. The character is known only as the man, and we've all been in situations where we wonder if the person next to us on the highway, or the road is got a little something. Extra going on. This character certainly seems to what without giving away too much. Does this character have going on behind the scenes that we may not know about ahead of time? That's one of the questions because what we really focused on in the story. Is His actions now don't really focused on more broadly that life. You know a lot of instead of through the course known. Health audience feeling. Walk on a place is coming from so there is kind of feeling you can get that this guy. You know he's as beyond on humanity and completely sort of You know we're just kind of thought process. If you're losing faith in the entire system Harambee, you know it can be very modern I think that said. You know if you if you don't believe you're with your employment is if your? Relationship is older fundamentals that you thought. Make you are. They can be something very very small. That loss little bit yet. You've been involved in a number of sports. You were part owner of a rugby team soccer. What we call football here American football. Cinderella, man boxing what? You told me. League the. League? Have A. Majority of the job and still do have since two thousand six. yeah, it's rugby league. Though there's different types of rugby, the rugby that you used to sing on Phoebe in America by using like in the north of as she schools that's rugby union. Rugby. League play is much more lawn to American football of fact, I think it's what American football really is is stretch all? There's the fawn period of offense and defense diamonds in the NFL guy. You know, so. It's a lot easiest for. Americans to follow because of. School in our, you can find it on your TV's in American. There's also a great latte or watching Hurrell and like a Lotta be. Pros at the Mama we're actually tying. All about flyers went into a bubble them and so we're now had a guy. Where there was the maximum of hundred people or something about. That over the coming weeks. A little bit more more and more fans will be leading, so we're actually planning on Avian American. Weekly Nascar has just come back as well albeit without fans except for this weekend at Talladega, but that was where I was trying to get is. Have you been around Racing Nascar in general much I realize you're no stranger to sports, but what about racing NASCAR well. Atlas. On Bravo was a big speedway fan when I was a kid, so a rental OUGHTA steep events in. Australia Museum, but you know. It was ball that I was heading along with miles. Or something. But I actually went to Indianapolis on Tom and I was wearing Cherki speedway. He should. I just thought it was appropriate. Dish the. Yeah God. One of Those many said not Russell. Him But. You know about Cherokee speedway. Actually you. About it, well I can tell you the Cherki speedway. It's kind of place that you you go there, we. Go all right. They're gonNA give you up. The short track. World is something else. It certainly is this. This movie had been originally scheduled to release a couple of different dates. And now it's GonNa come out on July the tenth. I guess to come out since movie theaters had shut down due to the cove pandemic. Why that particular date and are you guys nervous at all about how it might be with I? Mean I know everyone is hungry for entertainment right now especially since we've all been cooped up at home, but why now there's ways and means for us to sort of get back to a level of of normalcy. Knock mark those. Things understanding the seriousness of question to begin with, and you know long as local governments in the theatre owners and everybody had a good look at it and I to do, and there's a lot of people out there that you get to see a movie and dumping. Is You like this or this edgy and extreme? ended. When? You've had a lot of trying things on real life. You know it's. Back to that place in the cinema. Things happen. Just imagine. It's similar to what we're seeing in the racing world right now with all the precautions they're taking to try and bring fans back to the arenas and watch some racing listen. We really appreciate your time. Look forward to catching. The movie unhinged. It's due out on July.

"Hercules tire fits your vehicle the best. That's Hercules tire, dot. COM Hercules tired ride on our strength. Well. Let's start off William with where we are right now. You've gained a few spots in the standings real off a couple of top ten finishes, and it seems like things are moving in the right direction. How do you feel about it? Obviously winning every race would be great, but that's not realistic. Yeah, I still. I feel good about it. You know we'd like to have a few more chances at at having a shot at winning a race so far this year, but man with the luck and the just of the way that things have gone for us. I think that being where we are not a bad position You know we've really had. Had We've had a lot of things. Go wrong, but to be sitting. Fifteenth in the voices is good, and I feel like we're on that upward upper climb now, if put together three to four consistent runs, you know in the past four or five races so That's great, and we just gotTA continue to Kinda go towards the right direction. If obviously just part of the game is it. Is it just frustrating sometimes? Just make you WanNa Bang your head on the wall. Think no matter what I do. Good is not enough. You also have to have a certain amount of lock as well in this thing, don't you? Yeah, he do. I you know. Lock is Is Death laying important aspect in you just have to you have to execute is team and you have to do everything in your power to to run well and. All the boxes has to be checked and I feel like for us this year. We've been through the ringer in terms of of things that have gone wrong, but honestly it's taught us a lot. It's taught us. at a handle adversity and I feel like now we're. We're never going to be in a position to where we chant rebound and try to finish in the top ten so You know that's that's a good character trait at get train of art. Our team right now. is that we've learned through the versity. I feel like that's GonNa make a stronger. Absolutely. If, you've got it that song strong background. You know you can always have something to fall back on. Let's move ahead leaving Talladega. superspeedway headed to Pocono. This double header is something. Everybody was talking about way before all the the the Kobe Corona virus stuff came up. What was your initial thought of to racist back to back at Pocono and now after everything that's going on running through this. Yeah it's GONNA be. It's GonNa. Be Fun. You know this good time of year and Pocono the weather's nice. It's probably going to be one of the cooler races race weekends that we've had so far. every race weekend has been extremely hot. You know we don't typically run. We'll typically run races here in the south. At this time of year, you know typically were up north in June and July, so. That's been an adjustment driver Overall. It's going to be a lot of fun I. I enjoyed Pocono. I think it's one of those cool race tracks. It's very tough restarts really difficult treacherous so getting through those is important and then you know you have to have a good long card. You have to have a good good turning car in things that kind of makes speed there so. Yeah I'm I'm looking forward to I think it's going to be a lot of fun. People always say Pocono. At least the old adage was. You're not going to be able to be good in all three of those turns. You have to kind of compromise somewhere. Do you buy into that? And if so do you want to be really strong as opposed to not quite so much, or is that just an old wives tale? I think it's I. Think There's some truth to that for sure I think that honestly nowadays with engineering the way it is you have to figure out how to make it work in all three corners pretty well, but you've got to be pretty exceptional at all three to be really competitive, but turned. Three I think is comes to mind is one. That's probably really important just. Just the way that the way the that corner is and how difficult it is for the majority of the field, is look at race tracks, and think about where the majority of cars are GonNa be weak, and usually the good cars are not weaken those areas, so yeah, it's just a it's kind of it holds true still today with with the three corners and having to be good at one end. I know. I'm getting a little bit out of order, but big news recently was that the all star race is GONNA move. Bristol Motor speedway where you just came off a top ten finish. Do you like that idea? The concept of moving around generally, and what do you think about the All star race at Bristol? Yeah I. Think it's GonNa be fun. hopefully were part of it. You know we gotta gotTA. Make it in Ya'll flu win the next four or five racist, so we don't have to run away in that night, but if we do you know it's GonNa, be tough me I think the the open ocean race to get into the all star race is going to be wild wildest with You know the desperation that's going to be on the. The lines to try to try to get in there and try to try to win so yeah, it's It's going to be interesting you know. Last year we made it into the all service, which was awesome, mad, really good run! There you know. Had A shot really at the win at the end so I think if we can hopefully get in. That's GONNA. Be a lot of fun I. Think it's going to be a track. Bristle is one of the tracks where we sometimes see those shenanigans on pit road where everybody's kind of stopping and starting to make sure they can get an right lane that they want to have restarts. Do you think that maybe a choose cone would be something to give try to see to see if it works at this level lot of short tracks. Do it with some success. For sure I think there's no doubt that having a choose cone. Races hopefully hopefully on the top of the mind of of Nascar right now you know I think I, think if they if they use that as a tool it's going to be an incredible race and There's a lot of opportunity that they have with the race being bristol the to make some exciting instant cool. Some cool things happen so really looking forward to it I, mean the the race itself I. Think is going to be phenomenal. Um some. I'm really looking forward to see how this goes. All Right William. Will we appreciate your time and? Catching up with you again soon, good luck Pocono, and when it gets you the All star race rolling around. Thank you appreciate. That's William Byron and Hendrick motorsports. He'll be ready to roll this weekend at Pocono. Raceway time out when we come back. Actor Russell Crowe joins us..

"The final lap with Kerry Murphy is is on Mr Erasing himself. William Byron is on the program and for most drivers. Whether it's I racing or real life Nascar the competition once you strap into the race car is no different really for two drivers. I think most of us get in the race car. That's similar weather. Tyree thing or real racing journal it hits you one engine fires in the window and that stops and you're Kinda in your own castle there but Yeah you'll be different for the teams not have to aspect before the rates of hyphen build up but is the driver thing. Really nothing matters. Fill your in the actually driving and William Byron letting US know some of the differences between erasing and actual real life Nascar. Well I think that's a good question I mean there's there's some subtle differences for sure. I think the biggest thing that Irish has is that you can race against other people and you're not just racing laps by yourself The other thing is the thing is modeled as is pretty exceptional so Yeah I think those two things allow you to be able to to race against guy than learn things mentally or how you handle situation The thing the thing that doesn't have the Chevy Sam has just the movement and be Update the technology that we use so It's pitch much more similar on a on a car. Setups died to what we're actually doing In the in a real racing I guess Mike US at FACEBOOK DOT COM SLASH. The final lap like us..

"You can send your questions to us via our twitter at 'em Iran radio using the Hashtag ask 'em Iran or you can also call your questions in. You can do that by calling. One eight four four four ask. Amarin. That's one eight four four four ask 'em Iran Rusty. Let's start first with a question that came in from twitter. This is a follower that we have in Dover Delaware and it's a NASCAR related question. Do you think with the way the stages are today. How would that have played out with you? And you're driving style. Well I I mean obviously I would have had to drive harder because I had the mindset that you know. I'm going to take care of my car the first half of the race so I got a real good car at the end because I didn't want to run it so hard that I didn't have anything to race with at the end of the race and heck and now days Jeff I mean the engines are so strong. I'm afraid though back then if I were to run the cars heart as they want you to run now early in the race that we want to see in a lot of blown engines stuff like that back in the past so I mean these engines just of late not too long. I mean the last five or six years. I guess they've got so much stronger they can turn engines a Lotta RPM and not have any problems but man. If I would have done that back then out of blue a lot of stuff up on ahead problems you know. 'cause I got really aggressive and run hard special short tracks and road courses and stuff like that missing shifts over revenue engines and Jonky now but now you know. It's pretty obvious that you gotta run hard when they drop that rag right to the very end. Is it safe to say with technology? That is so far advanced so much improved just in the last ten years that the way you guys approach to race back then would certainly be a lot different than the way. They approach the racing today. I'll give you a good example to I mean I want to Martinsville. It's one of my favorite race tracks able to win seven times I think and my strategy there was. Okay get a good qualifying spot. Get a good pit road selection but in the race only race that cars hard as I need to race in order to keep my track position so man I would come off at turn four. I'd get to the start finish line. I'd roll out of the throttle. I would just coast that baby right into the corner instead of driving her down wide open because if I drove it down wide open I burned. Breaks off the car because the brakes weren't near as good as they are now. Also I mean there's a whole different way you had to drive than now nowadays. You run that thing as hard as you can almost every single lap and the brakes are going to hold up and if you get the things too hot it'd probably blow a tower out. You know I because he is get so much heat. So yeah it's give and take it's it's driving different ways because the technology has got so much better now. You can abuse the car more. Our second question rusty comes from William who is a native of Rochester Hills Michigan. Of course the hometown of Brad Kozlowski. If you hadn't been a race car driver what would you have done professionally? That's a good one. I mean it has to be aviation. I love aviation so much. I've had many different airplanes. I've flown I got about twelve thousand total hours of flight. Time Right now. On top rated and lear jets and king ears and stuff like that. So I've been flying a whole life and I recently recently quit flying about two years ago but yeah have to be aviation. I'd something is still close to my heart. I really enjoy it so maybe a corporate pilot something like that. Who knows how. How early in your career win? Was that time that you knew that you were going to be able to make auto racing your profession well. My Dad did it as a hobby when we lived in Missouri and I would just help him all the time but then I got so excited about it that my brothers and I started building cars and it got to where I just couldn't focus on normal work any longer. I was constantly working on cars. I start running around finding sponsors and once I found those sponsors it that would help flip the bill. Then I said you know what this is my calling. I'm GonNa do this even if they laugh at me. One thing. They used to have a lot. When I lived in Saint Louis people would come up and say hey kid what do you do for a living? I some race car driver now and they'd laugh and they'd go. No kid I mean. What do you really do for a living? I said no. That's what I do for a living. I'm a race car driver in it. It really agitated me. It made me mad. They just looked at my. What I did is a career and kind of joked at it but then when they saw how big Nascar God in. How much money was. They didn't laugh any longer was great catching up with you. Thanks appreciate it to ask a.

"We are back on NASCAR live. So you're with us here on our weekly get together and we're joined yet again by the only two time winner of the e Nascar. I racing mutational series William Byron again taking them to the house at Richmond over the weekend. He's back on NASCAR. Live William Welcome back to the show. How are you good news I'm sick as weekend again. So that was a sounds great You know definitely enjoyed the race and I thought it went well so You know how to tough. Charity Cold Air at the end of the race to stay out but luckily it worked out for some and You know enjoying the pro mutational while we have it and I think it'll be fun to go back your normal real racing here soon. Hopefully we can do that sooner. Rather than later. I think that Everyone in the listenership agrees with you. One hundred percent on that there are so many things to talk about as far as the virtual race from Richmond over the weekend going into the race something that they had changed from racist past no resets or no no abilities to have a good or a Mulligan in the back pocket for those that don't know when they say no resets. What does that mean compared to what you've had in weeks past? Yeah so basically we fast. We had one or two resets the to work with where you know. If you had an incident on track you could rebounding recover and resets for for that reason. Luckily for us this week we didn't have to use those and We didn't have the option. I guess to use them so You know everyone had to really race a little bit cleaner and and really have that in mind and try to treat their car like they're they're only car the whole race and and not cause a wreck or anything so I thought that was good. I thought it added and added the show and and kind of made us race a little bit differently. I agree because I saw a little more cautious racing that perhaps maybe as aggressive as like it was in Bristol and and other races like that when you when you I race at Richmond This is something that we've asked you before about other tracks. Obviously they're close to normal. What are some of the nuances that I guess you feel in racing and you feel in real life as well are there any nuances on the race? Track that stick out to you. The biggest thing about Richmond is the fact that the yellow line has a good amount of grip which is very normal and very indicative of what realized. Is there You know you kind of get into the corner and you try to get out You you have to be good under breaking That's an important quality to have at Richmond. And then once you get to the corner you have to wrap the yellow line really well and Make sure you're keeping the left side tires right on that line Throughout the corners to get a good launch and exit off the corner so You can also move your your line around and kind of diamond the corner and drive in wash up a little bit Dr Traitor off the guy in front of you and honestly the time made the pass on on Ryan. Preece WAS BACK IN MY CORNER UP. Kinda in the center and getting a big run off the corner To try to set up the past so Kinda Kinda used that Diamond Line so those things. They're all all things that come into play at the normal real richmond. Well this question is for US Novice. Ira problem overdriving and getting overcooked. Going into turn one at Richmond. Obviously it's a capital letter D. and the boat portion is the front stretch. And as you go off into turn over one. You're carrying a lot of speed. What is the key to getting into hot or pushing in or getting loose in and all that stuff are their markers that you use landmarks on the On on the Games landscape to to I guess you says breaking zones or not getting into hot you know Richmond. Is these track. I feel like four having breaking marks into the corner and things of that nature because of the way the walls are the way the front stretch curves and also with the red and the white on the wall Makes it very difficult to pick out a mark. So honestly I kind of look towards the yellow lines it kind of reference my depth perception Kinda understand how far away I am for my breaking zone. It's amazing how close each lap you are to the same point You know just naturally but you know. I'd say it's interesting Ed Richmond and you have to get in the corner pretty deep to have to have a fast last time but you can't you can't roll the center too fast and and wash up so yeah it's it's really tough balance there because you have to give a corner heart similar to any short-track road course. But then at the same time you have to make sure you don't overdrive the center of the corner chatting with William Byron winner. The Toyota owners one fifty over the weekend and Richmond raceway. You mentioned a few moments ago William you. You stayed out with thirty seven to go. A lot of people came in and took tires and all that is the tire fall off in. Ira seeing similar to what it is in real life because you one on old tyres when everybody else came and got a fresh set there. It is very similar. You know I think we. I think we kind of looked into the way that that that worked out for us. Because honestly what happened there was was was. We had older tired. Obviously and they are A few tenths off for sure so We kind of had a buffer of cars behind us that they'd out as well. We had two cars and Christopher Bell and Eric Jones and those guys did a great job of holding off the rest of the field Behind him for a while and that really gave us the buffer that we needed to kind of gap ourselves to the field so Yeah I think it was honestly GonNa work out pretty well. There's the end you know had the cost you come out when the caution did come out it change everything and I just had to make sure I had to restart in when you when you stayed out. You're starting to pull away. Although Timmy Hill on re-start everybody was saying Oh man. This is This Texas all over again you know when he when he bump bump and run you. They're coming out of two at Texas but the problem is could get to you on. This restart your restart. Game is strong especially at Richmond. I know that you're not going to give away the secrets to the competition. But can you give some perspective about when you go it? Seems like you just launch right out of the out of the zone on these restarts. Man Yeah I just tried to get the best that I can honestly You know I just try to do everything correct. Those are key moments of the race. The restarts are to have success in and real racing and virtual racing so You know really just have worked diligently on those restarts to try to get better and better acted like I feel like that's happened so Yeah I think it's great. It's the restarts have been as strong as they are. Definitely something I'm proud of well. This weekend we put Richmond in the rear view. And we're headed off to Talladega this weekend and speaking from personal experience. Talladega is one of the most awesome tracks to run on. I racing folks. If you haven't done it out there. Hop in there it gets it gets pretty dicey. I'm sure that it's a different level of dicey nece on erasing. That is in real life. Because you have that sensory overload William in real life at Talladega although you do get a good fair share in the game. What do you expect this week in an? Are you looking forward to racing data on I racing this week? Yeah I'm excited about it. I think it'll be a much different Pay of race. And you know you're going to see some some action carnage probably but it's GonNa be fun. I think it's going to be a really fun. Event for everyone to watch with it being Talladega and and I'm just looking forward to that. Honestly Kinda mix it up and not having as much to do on the practice. I the thing this week got honestly just GonNa Kinda kind of you know. Wait and see how it goes and see how it plays out. But it'll be nice to have a little bit of a refreshing You know entry to this week and not have to not have to worry so much about qualifying race feed and all that and interest rates.

"I love it. Smokey unique man. You don't know who smoke a eunuch is nope don't care. Geez not Jimmy. Now he's gone. He continue all right so this might be good news for Jimmy Fans. I don't know the next Gen Cup car. Not going to be a thing next year John PROBST NASCAR senior vice president of racing innovation said quote due to challenges related to the corona virus pandemic. The debut of the next Gen car will be delayed until twenty twenty two now. I added the now. The Decision was made in collaboration. Em's and the team owners. We will continue to develop the next gen car and revise testing time line. We'll be shared when more information is available and quote. So does that mean. Jimmy's GonNa keep going well. I mean paves the way for them to possibly especially with this weird last season. He's got going on. Of course. This would be the season he chooses for this so then their reason that bring him back for another year for you but yeah so this was a call they had to make and I think it's the right call. There's just no way with what's going on for them to even get the test sessions in In there already rumors that the a couple of tests didn't go so well so you had to do something and I think this is the right call. This gives them a little bit more time using a little bit more breathing room and gets the teams more breathing room now with all the money that were all. The teams are losing during this During this this this loss stoppage of racing. Yeah this is big. So this'll help everybody I think. And if you're wondering why what Jimmy has to do with any of this as he has said on more than one occasion that The reason he wanted to stop at the end of this year is he really didn't want to get involved with a on all new racecar net and that kind of situation. Yeah and really. That's a good thing to do for a team. Really Care about the team here with because if you're not mentally wanting to go for a long time you've only got a couple years left or a year left or whatever. This is a perfect opportunity to throw somebody young in there who doesn't have that knowledge base of the current car and they're starting off at the same exact clean slate is everybody else. This is a perfect example of a year where a rookie could break out next season two years from now now yeah With the next car so it was really good for him to make that decision for his race team. If he's if he's actually wanting to get out which it looks like he is obviously so. I sure hope it doesn't mess with his other plans that he was telling us about racing indy-car and that kind of thing. I hope because of his age. That doesn't put a damper on that schedule. Yeah hopefully not because it'd be cool to see him in some and speaking of indycar. They've got a little bit of a virtual race going on this weekend. Yeah and you know the reason we're talking about it is I just discovered there's Nascar virtual race this weekend. So yeah they were working on a Nascar race for but apparently it got nixed by the team owners so didn't happen but the INDYCAR series will be running a virtual race at Michigan on Saturday at two three two thirty. Pm EASTERN ON NBC S. N. And Dale Earnhardt. Jr. Will be in this thing. Not only in this thing. He was the instigator. Yeah he was tweeting Saying that he'd love an invite in a call. He said that he thinks this. You're GONNA Michigan So that was pretty cool. He did say that he didn't WanNa step on anybody's toes So he was just waiting for an invite if they wanted him to join the race and apparently the invite has come and they'll hurt junior will run this thing. Did you see the the paint scheme? He's going to be running well. Of course I I saw it from toby. Chris Dot Com. Yeah so he tweeted out It'll be a number three car. Never seen that before no never be blue and white. Nationwide Insurance Looks Pretty stiffy. Actually it does it. Looks I mean for an Indycar. There's not a lot of surface base to have sponsorship stand out but this one certainly does it does and so also joining Dell junior in this field will be Jimmy Johnson who has to? He's reading the last two. Virtually Indy car races. So definitely a lot to watch for if you'RE A NASCAR. Fan and this being a high-speed oval where they're not going to be lifting very much this really. Yeah kind of suits dill juniors driving style. He's always been a really good restrictor plate driver in Nascar so this is kind of the equivalent As far as cars go so it'll be interesting to see how he does but with it being I racing. I know he's done some indycar stuff on there in the past Just playing around and I expect him to do pretty good. I like his tweet invite received. I better get figuring this car out. Don't let him don't want kids you. He's he's played around every car on that damn game. Okay now the other thing the other way I got from this whole thing as he recommended the INDYCAR series race at Talladega superspeedway Blah. Yeah so they'll be going.

That's Kyle Busch but yes what did I say you said Kurt came out of the same person I think Kurt has the same wins though something close to that at least all right just copied Martin Church junior he's number two in the points going into this thing he's got five top fives no wins that's right he's not he doesn't have many short-track wins Cornell Eleven top tens whole average finish of eighteen point zero and I think he was also the guy who stops somebody's car who had no breaks here once you're okay plowed right into him or maybe he had no brakes somebody had no brakes I will give you the honor of taking last week's winner and of Virginia Native Denny Hamlin somehow I feel this is a trick but I'll take maybe Hamlin number eleven joe gibbs racing Toyota Camry like you said last week's winter has five win zero to Martinsville that's impressive fourteen top fives twenty top ten three polls an average finish second best in the entire series nine point five nine three lucky to even be there joy Lugano has a win six top fives nine top tens five poles average finish thirteen point four and not just a win wow how about Kevin Harvick here fifth-place guy in the points going into this thing and the number four Stewart Haas Racing Ford Mustang a win that this race track five top fives eighteen top tens an average finish fourteenth and how about we get to our special super special bonus driver guy it's all making sense now is it who could be and for this week I know this is different but Jimmy Johnson driver number forty eight Chevrolet he has nine wins at Martinsville Nineteen top fives twenty four sends three polls at an average finish of eight point five which is why he is our special bonus driver on but Yeah so just say prize suggests onus driver driver spotlight time Alex Bowman on Hedrick motorsports short-track programme heading into Martinsville the weekend yeah obviously feel like if we knew exactly what area to improve on on our cars we would have been much better at Richmond a couple programme heading into Martinsville the weekend yeah obviously feel like if we knew exactly what area to improve on on our cars we would have been much better at Richmond a couple of weeks ago but to do so we we went to Richmond trying to get a car that that turned the center all night and it was probably the best turning car there but had zero forward drive and is between between turn and drive at a place like Richmond or Martinsville's really important and Ryan Blaney is looking forward to the Rodney Hood well in Scandinavia Rally yes there you go

"PC OR MAC whatever it is they use and You better have it immediately as soon as you post the show I like Ease of use and and we're all about that yes it's all about that these days man I don't want to go searching for anything if I want something I want it now and I don't want to have to dig for it I want just hand delivered to me on a platter exactly and we're running out of platter so hurry up and get that subscription yes hey on the show we've got William Byron you know he drives the number twenty four car for Hendrick motorsports while some news about him because we've got that to boo he's actually rubbed elbows with the great one who's the great one not Wayne Gretzky Jimmy Johnson I think these guys have rubbed elbows with him that's true but he's a teammate did you know that if you double the number twenty four it becomes forty eight Yep that's interesting jiffy divide twenty four by three it's eight that's interesting that's a different team it is but there you go all right Nascar playoff racing from Kansas that's the track with the corn and the wheat fields in the middle of the track and on the racing surface although I didn't see it last week they must have uh gotten a a sickle out a sickle yes you know what a sickle is sickle cell no it's one of those things you know the grim reaper holds but it's actually I used to chop down corn and isn't it a cycle I don't that's not what we call those what you're from Texas those are like machetes or there's other word for it to remember what the other one more of a long knife yeah we have another word for it but I don't remember what it is but it's definite sickle now you got me thinking you're California terminologies weird to me yeah I'll have to look that up what do you call it people that are listening to show facebook at facebook dot com slash hapless no with the grim reaper holds what do you call that think it's the strangest homework we've just sent our listeners on ever yeah who'd have thought although we are coming up to Halloween so it's a topical yes it's a sickle a sickle are you being now there's no way yes okay are there any other like also known as Asi- site that sounds right that's what I know of maybe it's not sickle wait why just googled it says why does the grim sleeper carry a sickle like a popsicle or this is the weirdest tangent ever but now I wanNa know I'm intrigued I have to listen anyway while you're doing that you know they raised it Kansas this week and it was an elimination race and the sure was on and I think that the amazing pressure produced a pretty good show there in Kansas we saw a lot of crazy moments on the track okay I got it I got it I got it though okay okay so has a longer handle but that weird curved blade and then the signal is more of a hand held one with the same curved blade okay so then the site is what he always uses but I wasn't far off that's weird I would never I I've never heard of a sickle being called that there you go only on this show yeah so now we'll get into the Kansas top ten finishers I'll let you start number ten there oh yeah waiting so long for this although he's been doing fairly well lately a top ten notched under his belt if that's where you're not things Jimmy Johnson yeah how come nobody ever notches anything above their belt I I don't know I don't what what is actually the saying Nacho isn't it just a notch in their belt right so I want a notch off my you gotta Google something else well while you do that I'm just kidding so Jimmy doing better I mean that's not bad you know I've noticed that he's really done this turnaround thing ever since we started doing the bonus driver of the week or whatever thing that you keep doing what you're talking about okay I'm sure we'll hear it again today he's gotta be the magical driver again I would imagine maybe how about number nine Kevin Harvick yeah he I don't I don't know what to make of him I WanNa talk about the eight drivers later on the program but I've got some stuff to talk about Kevin with that okay well I think essentially cam impressive because if you remember back to qualify he didn't actually get to qualify his car filled prequalify inspection three times was allowed to qualify so he started dead last had be worse pit stall selection still fish no qualifying for you know definite but he did actually run top five there for a little while I'm not really sure I don't remember what led to him finishing in the back half of the top ten but he was he was running pretty solid there for a while good good okay what do you want me to say just move onto the next guy maybe like you usually do yeah Clinton Boyer who gets a top ten although it's not enough no it's not some of these guys in here it's not enough you called it when we moved to the round of twelve clint boy was out immediately I called a lot of things but I I think I I also recall Ryan Newman coming out of my mouth that he was not gonNa make it and you were just adamant it was pretty close you're nervous close I was not nervous you're none Chris at all you were so sad that you're going to have to say I was wrong in the show but you were right I was and it would have mattered anyway even dead last this weekend yeah so there you go Eric Jones at number seven Martin deb Another solid run for Eric as he kinda prepares towards moving to twenty twenty he knows where he's driving he knows what's going on just get that momentum built up and you got Martin tricks junior at number six yeah that's pretty good run to the whole Joe Gibbs racing team is whole didn't qualify very well this weekend and haven't really qualified super well all year long but Martin Church junior just continued to pound out really good finishes our guest in mere moment hence William Byron at number five that's pretty decent man he is had such a good season and I know when you look at the stats it doesn't look like such an sanely good season but he's made the playoffs in his second year taken huge steps towards a pasta getting close to his first career win I see it right around the corner starting records from top five finish second Daytona he's had lots of polls this season he's just been running up front very consistently and he's making less and less mistakes as he goes forward to so I I really see a win coming very soon for William Byron takes a few seasons for these guys these rookies these these newbies to to go through the full schedule will a few times and really have it start to click I mean it's just the way it's GonNa be well and back in the early two thousands and stuff like that late ninety he's it seems like I know people say this is the most competitive time in the sport well right now we we get a stranglehold brothers like five or six guys that have kind of ran away with things the last few years but an early or late nineties and early two thousands it seemed like young guys could come in and win in those rookie seasons and those next couple seasons where that's not the case right now it just seems like there's a huge separation between those top five guys and then you know from fifth to tenth and then of course from eleven on back it's just they're all out to launch it seems but he's he's he's really competing very well and I see a wind coming very soon definitely then you've got the Bush brothers there at four and three Kurt Busch kyle busch and chase Elliott there at number two and chase boy those closing laps how exciting were those closing laps you had no idea who is inter out until the checkered flag flew yeah especially for that last restart it looked like chase all it was gonNA have to win if he's going to make his way in and my goodness it seemed like they told him over the radio you've got to win on this thing because he saw that carrot dangling out in front of which was the leader and he was chasing down it was ridiculous had the cautioned not come out I think chase Elliott takes lead there and he might win this thing you know it's questionable though the guy who had a very good car to man chase Elliott was really good right before that caution came out to bring out that last restart let's hear from the winner he goes victory lane for the fifth time this season Denny Hamlin a thrilling finish playoff implications all over the place but in the end denny takes the checkered flag. really a dominant car the second half of the race you know when we were able to take the mar- lead for Martin there I knew that is obviously very strong and just wants to get out front I could really give what I felt like it was the right information as far as what my car was doing to to Chris and then he made adjustments as race went on and and so we we got better you know piled off a charge air from the eighteen I felt like you know when I needed to get laptop to keep my distance I could go out there and get it but didn't make unnecessary unnecessary chain risk of mccaren had spots so although the strength of US really was able to move around the racetrack and run you know close to the same lap time no matter what lane we were in that kind of allowed me to get the traffic the way we did and and then obviously hold those guys off at the end and then Hamlin's GonNa talk about restarts yeah I mean there's no guarantees at all I mean you just hope for my am point that the person behind you gives you a push I think that all the drivers are smart enough now to know that like the powers numbers you start pushing Democrat stretch through the through the corner that line will go and there was one that was really crucial for Kyle in myself for he pushed me all the way all the way into turn one if he dips out in takes us three wide one way or another arlene is dead in the whole outside launches freight trains right by us all so I think it's just your you had a bunch of experience right there guys kind of knew what they were doing and then at the end I was definitely worried about chase you know sticking us three wide but I was able to time the restart to where once took off he gave me the show he gave me a shot it wasn't a push it was a shot that sent me out where he couldn't really do anything at all anyway so it was just a good time to restart their at the end is crew chief is Chris Gabe Heart Dan he says his driver has something special clearly shown the ability throughout his career to to elevate and I think that's the difference between a good driver and a great driver just like any athlete is the ability elevate when the pressure's on and clearly he's shown the ability throughout his career but now he has the experience of the of the good days in a bad days and the years and years and he's just he's just on it right now I mean this this race team shows up to win every week and and we're disappointed if we don't quite frankly and I think that's the key I I don't think it's about homestead for us it's about getting us the homestead and then at that point the mentality will will carry us through the race or it won't but it's the same mentality we go to the racetrack with every week and Chris Gebhardt Potter's about whether or not all three Joe Gibbs racing cars we'll be at homestead for the championship you mean mm-hmm and in the race at homestead yeah that's a that's so hard to say certainly without question the organization has the potential to get there I think we've we've more than proven that this year but you're talking about a three race series to get there and these race cars have a million movement parts on most of which we try to control but some of which we can't and then you have another thirty eight race cars out there that have a.
NASCAR drivers pushing limits on track, pointing fingers

The Mueller Report, Unpacked
"After nearly two years of investigation thousands of subpoenas hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to a legally interfere with the two thousand sixteen presidential election. But did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those efforts, that's US attorney general William bar on Thursday. He released a redacted version of the long anticipated report from US special counsel, Robert Muller, the FTC managing editor Peter Spiegel talks with F T U S national editor Ed loose about Melissa's findings, and they'll dive into everything from what counts is obstruction to what the report means for Democrats in two thousand twenty. So Ed if you can't couple sentences you've been covering politics for longer than we'd like to admit, what do you think of the significance of this report that came out today? I think it's a hugely significant. This not really been quite such build up to any report. And this is a town of pretty hyped up new cycles. Washington DC does not really been quite such a build up that I can imagine no quite such spilling in advance. William by the tardy general at indicated that this essentially exonerates Trump of collusion with Russia and obstruction of Justice and details in the report provide very different conclusions. So this is highly contentious, it's not the end of the Mueller investigation. It's really m we're really now in the of it in congress is going to pick it up. So it the temperatures just gonna keep rising in my opinion. Let me take those two separate bits of their port and divided up. Because you mentioned the two main ports actually two separate volumes of this four hundred fifty page report one on the quote, unquote, collusion with Russia and the other one on structure of Justice start with with. Russia investigation because as you said it interesting in that, although the central prosecutor could not find evidence of collusion. It's pretty the Russians were trying to help Trump. And it's pretty clear that Trump people were happy to get the help from the Russians. What was your your take on on that bit of the report? Yeah, I mean from the very best page of volume one the buddy that deals with conspiracy. It says Russians attempt to influence the twenty sixteen election was sweeping and systematic. But it also says that the special counsel found extensive contact between the Trump campaign members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government eight concludes, and this is the piece that has been very much picked up on by William Byron others. It concludes insufficient evidence of criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. But that's that's slightly different to how attorney general boss on it. Which was that? He was completely let off the hook of that child. Judge the details that this sort of I two hundred page volume of the mother of pool provides show what instead of commonsense use of the word canoe Zhan ole coordination a lot of evidence across the campaign. People weren't for Trump people related to Trump and Trump himself coordinating the dump of hacked emails with WikiLeaks and cooling upon Russian intelligence offices, the GRU at cetera to conduct the hacking up ration-. So either the headline is Trump's of the hook details that very very different to what the headline would suggest. When I was struck by the bit on WikiLeaks where they do talk about Trump himself getting briefed almost on a regular basis about wanting to know win. The dumps were coming what the communication strategy was going to be it's redacted. We assume as probably Roger stone is the man he's working with because we know in a simple criminal case that stone has been worked was working closely with WikiLeaks. I mean, it's pretty remarkable that a campaign was working that assiduously to get material that essentially being provided for by foreign government. This is what's extraordinary about the report, we often spa news news reports. The dramatic headline is not supported by the content. This is kind of the opposite. Dramatic headline is very much belied by the dramatic content. You have a foreign government that according to the report is offering to help the Trump campaign and actually helping the Trump campaign and the Trump campaign from the nominee downwards is reaching out. Sistani an I in a really sort of deep pattern of extensive contacts with thinly disguised proxies for the Russian government to to coordinate the release if this information damaging to the Clinton campaign. So he he's marched us up to the top of the hill, Robert mala, and I get surprised to say now much down. Again, what he's when he reached the top of the hill is congress over to you here hair or a lot of leads. Here is a lot of evidence. There is no criminally. So the provable case here, but there's a lot of things to work on. And that's essentially what he's saying in this report. And the Democrats have already today said that they would they would pick up the cudgel. And it's interesting as we go to the to the second the second volume, which is on the truck in of Justice. It's almost the same thing there. It is there is not necessarily a legal provable case. But the only reason he. Doesn't pursue it is because of legal technicalities. He makes very very clear in obstruction of Justice section that this is a matter. The belongs properly to the first branch of government in a very sort of passed through detailed reading of legal precedent, and the constitutional precedent there. He says this is Congress's determination. But it is criminally prosecute. There is a scene in the Oval Office where Trump us expletive and says this is the end of my presidency. And this struck me as not only a great bit of drama, but for all the public bravado that Donald Trump and said, you know, there's never been any collusion's been any nothing the minute. He finds out the MO has been appointed. He thinks it's all over, and it's really a striking public or private dichotomy there. And it's funny because mother is writing about what Trump said about Malas appointment. There's a funny tone toward of this of detachment Ma Benz over backwards in this case, many others to say doesn't -sarily beyond old. Doubt proved groped intent in this case, obstruction of Justice that he wanted to find I think for most ordinary people and probably a jury of what they used to cold twelve good men in drew saying my presence. He is finished as evidence that Trump thought mono- would uncover collusion. Some some kind of criminal behavior of the Trump campaign will let me wrap this up is this good for the Democrats are bad for the Democrats because there's been been an argument, particularly some of the presidential candidates who have said, look, we don't focus on Muller. We wanna focus on Trump Russia. We wanna focus on jobs. We want to focus on healthcare. We wanna focus on things that people talk about on the campaign trail. Yes, I think probably the most experienced operates in Washington is Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the house and she's being resisting pressure to start impeachment proceedings against the president because she understands that the public in very subtle Indians at pretty evenly split on this the most people in outside of. Shington have very little interest in this in the democratic presidential candidates. Find good very few questions have anything to do with Russia or matter there about you know. Kitchen table issues as they say and Pelosi knows this I fear. Job of holding back holding back with pressure. Resisting the pressure is gonna be more difficult now because this is not what William bas summarized it to be which was essentially an across the board. Exoneration of trumpets from that. And therefore, the heckles gonna be gonna be rising on the left. Understandably and up is gonna be a lot tougher than it was two days ago

"Hey, man. Thank you. It's great to be here as always like last four hundred something weeks, or whatever it is kind of feel like you're a guest. Yeah. I mean, new he do welcome. Like, a guess it's nice really good stuff from William Byron there. I talked to about that that that rock climbing movie with him. What's what's the name? Oh, solo solo is the name of it. Yeah. Honest. I didn't listen to anything you told them just moments ago. I just do out. So just so you're like me with when I listened to your interviews. I don't even bother. Well, I only do that. Because you do it to mind if you would actually give Melissa ask is, I say is there any bad words? No, let it run the one time we missed one. That was yes. Thank you very much for that. Jeffrey earnhardt. Which is just a kind of a wild card. We should always just assume there's a cuss word in Jeffrey her interview. All right. Well, now, he's a seize on our list. Well, I mean, these these good, though, he's awesome. He's fun to talk to you. Anyway, lots of good stuff William Byron there. Listen, again, if you want because these things are reusable, right? The show. Are you could just keep listening over and over and over? It's pretty awesome. Some people I think do good good. We're glad to have you twice or three times. It's fine or four five ten doesn't. You know? It's it's no more work on our end. We just make the thing once right? So that's the best part? All right. So now that it's officially official. We got the two hundred Kyle Busch multi series wins in the truck series extended series and Cup series. So that's on the Kyle Busch side, then on the Richard petty side, he's got two hundred wins as well but all of them in the Cup series. And obviously the Kyle Busch Richard petty haters are going to say, oh, well, they you know, ran all kinds of races three or four times a week. He had a bigger engine, blah, blah, blah. Okay. So there's there's arguments on either side. Now, let me say I and. Foremost, and you were saying that I wasn't. But I am darned impressed at Kyle Busch's accomplishment. It is definitely very impressive that he accomplished two hundred wins in nascar's top three series. Now what I don't agree with is is comparing it to somebody like the king or even some of the guys with you know, one hundred Cup series wins or whatever. Because again, I've said this in the past Kyle Busch going down into the lower series and racing. Again, these guys that are not even close to the level of Kyle Busch. Heck most of the guys in the Cup series are not even at the level of Kyle Busch. Did you see him slicing and dicing through traffic like they were standing still last week? That was ridiculous. We didn't even mention that me the breakdown he'd be a bus for speeding on pit road. Right. And man, he did he like you said knifed left and right just through the entire field to get back up. There is very impressive to us. So so having said that I mean, he is at a different level of talent..

"So I enjoy that. You also mentioned you saw the movie coming out here. I think free solo. I haven't seen that yet. I wanna see it. What can I expect? Yeah. Yeah. You should watch that. It's incredible. Like, the guy just honestly exactly what the movie says, he's a free solar. So he just he just climbs with no assists. And that was incredible. I mean, just I think about the times that I've rocked climbed at in the indoor places and like you're straight vertical vertically like this. And I can't imagine that with. I mean, just insane. I wonder if you thinks you're insane for what you do probably not because I mean that guy's hanging off the side of a mountain. But probably not honestly. But now, it's funny. I mean, it was fun watching him and kind of see in his mind set on some of that stuff to get a lot of insight on what an athlete goes through when they're trying to perform I think both of you have a fair amount of guts to do it. You both do is cool. I mean, it's definitely cool. So. So yeah, I would watch I would suggest that one anything any thrill movies like that. I love. All right. So we're here on the west coast. Swing three completely different race tracks. What do you expect out of the way the car is going to handle at a one and a half a one and a two well. In terms of the package. I think you know, the the mile and a half are going to be way different for us Fontana really have no idea what to expect. I think it might be like Michigan or it could be like, you know, could be more spread out. Not not totally sure. Three starts. I know are going to be insane there. But Phoenix, I think Phoenix going to is going to be pretty similar for us. I mean, I don't I don't envision a lot different there. It's probably going to be closer to truck race with the way that the cars will be. But I don't know. I'm not really sure what to expect everything is kind of an unknown at this point. Yeah. That's what makes it exciting. I guess for the west coast. Swing and you plan on staying out here, you're gonna fly back and forth. Yeah. I'll fly back and forth for the most part maybe style here for a couple of days. But try to try to go back home for the most part. I feel like it's I'm not I try not to live off the west coast time. Gotcha. I talked to your teammate Alex Bowman earlier. And he wanted me to ask you how in the world you keep getting Fridays off of school. How are they allowing that? Yeah. It's funny. I was actually in my bus do my homework yesterday. So so yeah, Friday's, you know, I don't have to do anything which is good get to go have some fun. Get to do my my real job. That was the worst. You can come up with. So I'm guessing that's not too bad right now. I've I've heard that from numerous time. So maybe he'll come up with something. Original at some point. There you go. All right William Byron, thanks so much for the time and good luck this weekend. Thank you. Mike us at Facebook dot com slash the final lap like us. Don't find a lot weekly as back. Here's your host carry Murphy and Toby Christie just a couple of guys talking racing. Welcome back to the final weekly..

"If you've gotten to this point in the show, you probably should have heard it already, but if not realistic, it's good. It is. It's it's actually pretty and carries the one who interviewed him. So the fact I'm saying that really shows you it was right, right. And you and he have something in common, right? I was waiting on this news story. So what we have in common go. Your heads are going to fill something that were made in the same place. Okay. I'm guessing you're leading to the helmets. Is that what's going on? Yeah, you sent me a text and Greg stump from off axis paint right axis. I got it. Right is fixing you up a helmet and all my gosh, it's spiff is back man. It looks awesome. I can't wait to show when this things done, but Greg and his guys over there are just killing it looks awesome. Ain't gonna use those thing for you drive your streetcar with it? Yeah. I mean, why not? I mean, I get pulled over the cops, maybe the laugh and let me go drive it around Dallas with that. That'd be awesome. That would be pretty cool. So how this is related is you sent me a picture a couple of weeks ago which we actually put on the website, so the cat's kind of out of the bag. But anyway, your helmet in the early stages of creation was in the same drying room. It looked like as William Byron's helmet. Yeah. I mean, it was among like, you know, the brash laundry Evers of NASCAR and like my helmets Fratton is. There's that's pretty cool. It was pretty awesome to see the the final app logo there and Toby, Christie, and you're at your Twitter handle there, and it looks really does look amazing. It does. So the final products can be awesome. I can't wait to show all the listeners. I'm sure we'll be posting it up on the website and Facebook and and whatnot. But yeah, Greg, and the guys have done amazing job. So seriously, you're gonna show up at the go kart track with that thing out. And the other guys will be like, oh my gosh, this guy means business, right? And then just stuff in the wall. Mainly he's got like a fifteen thousand dollar helmet. Fifteen thousand dollar helmet keeps going up by the way as you and I talk well, yeah, because every time he sends me a picture, it looks more and more fancy. So right. Can't be cheap. No, there's no way not to venture the labor in the fancy nece and everything. No, I'm hoping since we're buddies cut me a dealer or something. I'm not sure what's going on. I think it's funny that he's just started making this you guys have it discussed any terms. There's no terms. We just kinda do. Okay. So they're gonna hold this helmet hostage until you. You pay him some funds. Yeah. So I mean, it's kind of like, you know, I've done like graphics and stuff for a website and stuff and before and not told you what was going on there right here. So it's kind of same thing. It's just just do, oh, you're expecting me to pay you for that now someday hopefully I didn't know that. I just come back with your with with what you show me and go good job. Thanks. Hey, can we ask you this a little bit? Right? Didn't know supposed to pay for it. That's funny. This helmet on the website. Can't we have some sort of logo or something I would imagine. So I mean it scar logos all over. It's so how many times in the next five years do we have to say off access paint on the show what we've already said that probably about thousand times this year. So think we're in good shape. I think we'll be all right. Not that that would actually even help him. I mean, his clientele kind of ready know about him. They never know, man, there might be some upcoming race car driver currently, who's the next Jimmy Johnson that's listening to the final weekly right now going when I get to the big times, I'm gonna ease off Xs paint..

"Bigger, wider. No, I was just okay. I was shrunk for my age group. Okay. Gotcha. Gotcha. With Casey, Cain, sitting out a few races, there's a focus on dehydration and stuff like that. When how soon in the week do you start getting ready for a race weekend? I mean, I don't feel like I really drink anything, but water during the week. I kind of maybe drink some other stuff sometimes, but I really just start drinking water. You know, the day after I race and then maybe on Tuesdays, I'm not as sensitive to eter or focused on it. But then by Wednesday, I'm starting to drink against. I feel like it's a fluid process just like keeping yourself acclimated trying to get good things in your body so that it's not going to be detrimental on the weekend. So I feel like it's different for everybody, but I try to at least try to hydrate. Well, I don't think I eat that well, but I at least try to hydrate and be ready for that. How much do you think you lose throughout the course of a race in pounds? Probably five or six pounds. I mean, it seems like after the off week I weighed like I dunno one forty, five. And then the next week I weighed one forty one right after the off week, one race. And then this week I weighed and I was like less than. That so think it just kind of shows over the weeks. It just kind of get back to your base way, I guess. And I feel like that's where maybe somebody like Casey is hard to keep that weight on. And then if you don't, then it's just difficult your body can't keep up. So looking ahead, what are the goals? I guess, for the final ten races of the year. I mean for us, we were obviously not in the playoffs, but I feel like we're gonna try to approach it and be very solid in the next ten races. There's lot for us as a team first year together that we can learn and and we expect to be in this position next year. So I think the biggest thing is we're going to try to go out there and and really treat it like like we're in it and try to average a certain position and build a run run well, so. I think with that in mind, we should have a pretty good game plan. A couple of curve balls on the schedule. First of all, the the Roble at Charlotte, what are your thoughts? I mean, it'll be a tough challenge, but I think it'll be. Some all ready for at this point. And hopefully we can just keep all four tires on it. The whole race. It's funny you say that because I mean the road courses, sonoma's Watkins, Glen, it seems hard enough to keep the car on the track. This one seems even tighter. Yeah, definitely. Those row courses are made to run and made for our cars and this row courses kind of made for kind of a parking lot. So we'll see. But it'll be exciting for the fans. I've talked to a couple of fans and people around Charlotte that are like him going to sit here because I know this is where the wrecks are going to be, so it'll be exciting for them. Phoenix I'm excited as a media member to see the infield and all the renovations and the new media center and stuff like that. But you guys the start finish line moved on you? Yeah, I didn't even think about that. But yeah, that that track will be a little different for the restarts and things. But yeah, like Phoenix and then trying to think homesteads always fun in martinsville's pretty cool too. So there's a couple really cool tracks. Okay. So a couple of years in the future, your big time superstar, NASCAR driver Hollywood comes knocking and they want to make a movie about you. Which actor do you wanna play? You. Sounds good. This Tom Hanks he's pretty. He's pretty good actor. He's made. He's kind of older than me, but maybe maybe they can, you know, put some makeup on them or something. All right. Thanks so much for the time, William Byron. Good luck this weekend. Thank you..

"I mean, you look at what happened in the truck series race the day before there was a last lap crash and before anybody came to a stop and tried to even run away, get going again, NASCAR already called the caution. So. When you look at that, it's kind of like, okay, well, why didn't they throw the yellow, but at the same time it's a Cup series. Race people pay a lot of money, your these things, and you wanna see the race in green if possible. And luckily nobody was hurt from that last lap crash. It looks like everybody's kind of rolling away to me in. So maybe that's what factored into. But you know, I don't know. I kind of see where he's coming from, but I also kind of see other up well, had they throw in the caution people will be complaining about that anyway. So you sure they would have heard that all week, man, Eric, Merola. Got screwed. Kurt has some funny neighbors. By the way somebody one of his neighbors left a fuel can on his property and said, we thought you could use this as pretty as pretty good, good stuff. Hey, up. Next we've got William Byron of the Hendrick motorsports krill and he and I chat next on w. off access paint driver by the way like us at Facebook dot com. Slash, they'll final lap. This is the final land weekly vinyl. Once again is William Byron. Welcome to the program. Yeah, thanks for having me. All right. So Cup cars have the emojis on the side of the cars. What are your thoughts? It's different. I mean. You know, unfortunately we don't get our own Moji, but it's it's pretty cool. I mean, different ideas. So applaud them for trying some. I mean, everything you guys do is posted the social media these days. So I guess a MC sense to promote it. Right? Yeah. I mean, social media's obviously a big part of of.

"Not many people are looking for a little switch to starts the car. They can't just usually think it's a key maybe, but it doesn't it say on or admission or something? No, I had no indicator at all. It was just switch. All right. I knew what it was. Oh, you're talking about yours? I'm talking about in general, on a Stockton on the on the NASCAR race cars, they would have an ons which is because they don't wanna make the drivers think too much right. They wouldn't all have several switches for other things to several. It's like airplane in that thing now. It's pretty awesome. It's like every little thing. Could you figure all the switches if you were in behind the wheel, carry if they were labeled sure what if they weren't? Well, I would just keep switching until stuff happened. All the leaked out. That's awesome. There should oil leak switch now. So when you're in front of somebody, you don't like you just drop it all, and then they spin out and crash. We don't need that. We got five gallons anyway. Oh, Stewart house racing, we we kind of touched on this, but man, they ran one, two, three, four after they qualified that way too. I think, right. Yeah. And then they run this way and Dover for most races? Well, they took over the. I mean, they dominated the opening stage one. The stage pole-sitter Kurt Busch wanted actually outright and they had a very, very different strategy than we've seen in in years past. Yeah, they stayed single file and nobody could touch them most of the day. So that was pretty impressive. And in the end more of their guys ends up front, fuel issues, kinda doomed a few of the others though. Yeah, we got a loose lug nut on the two car. Lap forty one cent. Brad Kessler, Laos ski lap down. The forty eight got loose in the trial. Seems like he does that a lot hits the inside wall with a left front. Six races to go by the way for them to notch a win to keep that wind per year streak alive. Yeah. And for Kozlowski he has to get on the stick as well because he's outside the playoff contention right now if the if the race were to cut things off, currently, he would be outside the top eight. So last week you said he was safe going into tell begging, you really, I don't feel very nervous about him at all. He's still outside looking in? Yep. Yep, Yep. Blown right front tire for the forty two of Kyle. Larson making it a must win for Kansas and actually gets worse for him. We'll talk about that and news of the week later on in the show Stewart Haas racing led all, but two laps over the first two stages that's pretty astonishing, especially Talladega. This is a place where it's very hard to hold off other challenges, but like we were saying they just form that single file line between the team cars there and there's nobody can handle them. I don't know what the deal was. So the wreck with less than four laps to go involve the Eighty-eight of Alex Bowman. He's kind of toast. We'll run down the bubble drivers later as well twenty four of William Byron and others. Essentially, this broke up that huge. Lead that Stewart house racing had on the field, the four car, ten forty one in fourteen of course, and then you got cars running out of fuel, Kurt Busch being obviously the most vocal after the race. You know, why didn't they throw the caution? Why do they run an extra pace lab? He had all kinds of complaints. Yeah, he definitely did..
