Welcome the episode thirty of the NASCAR hospot podcast. I'm Herstroy, drawn by Chris and Caden, and this week we're going to be talking about all that went on last week, because a lot that went on between a truck s exfinity es rex made their debut, long awaited. It was really cool. We'll get to that. Maybe some rumors and Austin. So the All star race. Witch. I'm not going to say it didn't disappoint, but it wasn't that good. But we'll we'll get we'll get further into that. So let's get this started. How is everyone doing today? All story suck. Oh No, I thought it was a move outside of NASCAR. Is a good weekend and racing? Agree with that? I think so. I think it was. Yeah, they were at Texas for every track this weekend. Yeah, it has a bad weekend. Yeah, I know, as you were there and I wish one in an over series and drawn underknee my check one again. Oh well, I was bound. Yeah, it was a pretty us, a pretty boring weekend. God, I'm a Nascar and then if they're not took about, oh my God, it's just it just kept getting worse. They could white Texas will white taxes. All Star race needs to change every year. You know, that's what I think. I think it should change every year. I think it should go or at least have like a rotation of tracks. You know, like it's a good idea if you had to pick five tracks to rotate the all star Rayes, go, oh, Daytona, Dago, Bristol. I put Charlotte back in there. I think Charlotte still like a key part, a partner, Askar and Probably Hau Charlotte, I'm not too sure. I don't want to do marks for arms are born. Um, I'll say. I'll say you know, I'll say Richmond. No, I'll say vagus, lost bagas. Vegas would be an interesting one. Since homes, you have, since homestead, all lost. It's it's time as a financially but as the all staries. So homestead, of course, got to do. Like I used. Day Tone is good. Go to Charlotte again, of course, Richmond, actouald be pretty cool and, I don't know, Bristol, but like maybe more laps and stuff like that. Last year, I think if both to go with five, I wanted to do Daytona because they're already there. For the clash, whether it be the road course or the whole oval. So it's already getting one non points playing race. I would do out of the rotation of Charlotte, Bristol, Richmond. I'd a vague guess. Yeah, then I'd want to go to also, like I want to see him do it a gateway to go to some fellow doesn't have a points race and I I don't want to see them leap standalone. Not Not Be Nice is by, but I wouldn't want them to do a road course. I don't think road course. So no all star race. You know, no road course is an all star race won't be that great because it's like it's hard to race like like a hundred percent and a stock car out of road course like they're more like technical and stuff like that. And then you can't really be clause if you're going to shorten the race. It to me like five lap stage. Yeah, it's it's not going to be good. No, you can't. You can't do a road course all star Rais because they'd only be three guys. That'd be anything worth not vating in that. Let's get into the truck race.

...was first on one pm what's it aim it Saturday. Yeah, so I don't think anything really. But on truck race Shelton creed spun and crashed at early drew dollar did the same. Any you a check one again? Yeah, it's kind of boy. That's pretty much all this is. Je gave him a run for a bit there, but then once John Hunter got the leaders, kind of game over. One hundred eames expect chase alley confirmed Hannah. It's better over to yeah, probably John Future Champion the Cup sis, after going to front row Dan F and like half the rays of the season, coming back to trucks, winning like twenty of the twenty two races on the schedule. Gonna go back to Cup Suis and he's gonna win all thirty six races. I'm calling it. He's not good. That is like I don't even know how to describe a logical response to that one. Yeah, we're just gonna move on from good ignore that. Yeah, she's Sally was awesome on that race. Um, yeah, wow, that I'm situ. Want to stage and mean you didn't do bad. You Got Second. Yeah, John Hunter Dominating. Grant and finger should have gotten a playoff wai. For a long time ago, but I guess it's too late. But he's still like racking up top fives and tens every single race he gets into, no matter the equipment that he's in. But he got third, which is a great room for him, even though the store sport. Yeah, it's I don't know, it's not really too much to know down and in the truck series, it seems I mean, no one really had a bad day. So for creed, and then John Hunter kept doing John Hunter things. Yeah, I mean thinks John Josh Barry getting eleven all, that's right, he did run. He run. Yeah, ten, Rando, twenty five and or twenty five, twenty five, yeah, nothing else. Matt Grafton was got off a race on the Will God. Yeah, twenty and I heard, I think he was running around there all day. It was bad. Yeah, I mean that's about it. So playoffs in a truck series. Johnny starter actually fell out after this week and I believe he did. So, yeah, he follow he's I go by eight or something like that. Yeah, out by and Chandler Smith is now in. Finally, it seems like that like that last playoff guys going to be the super inconsistent woman that just is one thing right, one race compared to everyone else. That's how anchoring was last deer. He is that one guy, the anchor in the playoffs? Is He? No, not right now. Well, no, not. So he still has been. He's been starting here. I don't want to hear me. Still, if you went, these still out. I know it's some bears. How many are we? Are we like over halfway down the regular season? As all as a there's only like four or five verses left in the trucks. Were want to say that's only four or five years. I forget where they said it ends, but I remember like looking before. I think walking schoolen is the cut off. Oh yeah, one cousin is the cut off. Oh yeah, because it's Knocksville, walking SCUN. We would have been that way. That's kind of said. We would have been there too. All that mean next year? Hang on, we well, you, stee. We had the all star race, but the true all starts of the week kept wet foreshadowing was the SR rex. What do you sex years? I was there. I was there...

...all day at Stanford and it was an amazing time. I got there at zero am, an hour before they hates open. Out'll you chilling there and it was fun. We got to talk to a lot of people. I met Kenny and Kenny's nice, but he's also like really tall. How it's all, you're short as hell. He's all, there's not too tall. Oh we okay, well, he is tall, campaire. He's he's a full foot taller than you. That anyways, are going to move on the roads of like that. So Um, yeah, yeah, I mean it was prettymos just hanging out on hanging out, walking around before were hand, before like the modified race and stuff like that. You know, we got our tickets, we got inside the gates, we got the tickets for the autograph session, which was at thirty. So we had like two hours to kill, and the kind of like killed that. went an autograph session and it was disappointing as hell because we would in this long line and we were almost there and I had like a huge bag full of like die cass and stuff like that. I was all im like, I'm gonna get them all side. This is gonna be sick. I'm going to meet all of them. And then and then they I guess the line was taken too long. are like the people ahead or whatever, and then they're like, okay, you can't have any perse item. Sign now. So, like it was a waste of time for me to bring like all this stuff and it was so disappointing. kind of like killed the move for like a good like thirty minutes. So any anyways, I was just gonna ask what are like the vendors there? Would you buy it? Like it's really big Kins, like like an asker. Know I was. There were all like kinds of food trucks and stuff like that. There was a lot of stuff there. There's like me you. There was the regularly like hot dog, hamburger, chicken under stuff. There was a there's a car. I got fried oreos because fried ores are tap. Oh my God, I love you. Are you complain about? I got a out this man fried oreos Ro least about hours at at least a thousand cows already, even thinking they were so cool, there were so greasy, like like I couldn't. There are a little too much. When you bite into it, it's like it was a little match. Like I was in a huge fan of it, but you know, fried words of Fried oreos. Anyways, I know. So anyways, I got them and between the modifiers stuff like that. Yeah, they had a lot of they had a lot of things there. They'd like a smoothie like ten or whatever. There's really cool. We're get like smooth and stuff. But anyways, so after our graph Suchi and everything, we hang out, we have a good like thirty minutes and then the modified race starts and it was. It was a really good race because you could see in the crowd that like people who go to staff were wormally like the local guys that, you know, all the guys that are racing a modified race, and they there's mixed emotions everywhere about like some people hate this guy, the people like this guy, and it's like I had no clue who any of these guys are, but like Pe, other people know who there are. Is Pretty cool to see all the mixed emotions there and kind of just root for a random guy. I read for a guy his car said toast on it, like like toast, it's just a toast and I don't know. It just said toast. It was it was a sponsor that just said toast and I'm like that sick toast car. I mean it kind of it kind of did bad. I mean its top five and then he just sled back and the invert. Who Are you nice? Back, there's a bandwagon. Now, I don't know what. He fell back and Jordan Reagan, yeah, try it. He felt like yeah, I don't like once he started befalling back and I'm like, well, I guess I doesn't watch now. It was a pretty it was a pretty good battle. There was like a father and...

...son the racing there bat on and stuff like that. Anyways, after that, after the modified races, a couple hours to kill again and and then Sr x Ray started and that's when the stands car started getting packed and everything and I met Alan Bestvik. You know, it was sick because my see teach were like two rows in front of the booth so I could turn around. I get just like waved out in Bestwick and Dannikat Patrick in there and stuff like that. It was it was really awesome. I said, that's Foos. Oh look at this this little midgets waving at me. Wonder what he wants put all, he's got a three stout, a fried oreos and his hand. Oh my God, he went me fat. Wow. They move on and you could really see like how big it was that during a national television. They I did not know that we're going to be on the actual CBS and tell yeah, Um, everyone at like the dennounced or whatever that was at the track. He was like okay, like authority, minutes until we go like national and everything on national television. It was like it was big as a lot of anticipation, especially when they started driving the cars out into the track and pictures started going everywhere and it was it was a crazy three started and there's a lot of Tony Store friends. There, a lot of like the merch that you saw ever'm wearing was like Tony Store, and then there was also like all kinds like nascar wers to that was kind of mixed in of like random drivers. I guess some like Chase Elliet. Of course you're going to have those, some bill Elliott, but yeah, it was it was a really fun time. The entire race was fun to watch because there's battles most of the time and I guess it's a bad it all right. I noticed from watching it that. Okay, so as soon as I turned on the broadcast, because I turn it down like right before the race started, they had like the whole intro and everything and then best week's four stame on. I was like, Huh, chills, like literal chills. The moment I started hearing this man dog, I was like cool, you know, it's a really going to be good. And then the race, you can just didn't disappoint at all. Like they had the first maybe but fifteen mini heat. The first like five minutes of the first heat was kind of them all feeling out the car, it seemed like, and then after the o they're like all right, let's go. Yeah, they had a rest after that. I think the one race you got turned around. Yeah, so pop choose to got turned around it. But like I think after a heat the field got inverted and that's an everyone started pushing it to where they were like side by side, pushing on the outside on the restarts and everything. Like they diddn't do that. I'm beginning, but like they've really pushed on. Never restart after that and it was sad up to buy side for like four to five laps for most guys remember, like Doug Kobe and Tony Store, Greg biff when I think Annie, maybe we're pretty whistle save a little bit that first stage. Nice, we're heat that first heat. Sorry, the first heat. Nice, it's here. Is he running full time? No, he's going doing he's one of the guys doing a two races. That's sort's him. I think it's him. DECAN and start speed throll doing two races of piece. Hailey. Dean's running as all right, I know it's disappointing. Yeah, Scott speed to Scott's be the one who ran then not as good. Red Bull car tire. Yeah, he's the one that I was trendos like we're silver wine one. Yeah, you know, the worst red bull car, but he's now he's act in Nascar. He wasn't back good, but like outside of the Mascar's got a pretty Oh yeah, I've heard it. Pretty solid career. I right,...

...that's especially in Fone. You know, kicked out of there. I was thinking more of the art front stuff and wasn't. Yeah, I went to that flowing part. Have one part. You See, a couple of years ago I got like suspended from IRIASON. Did he do? Yeah, because there's their stuff on Youtube, but like it pretty much like just rock. They guy drop back. He dropped. It lurks and bomb. Now or bomb. Where were at? We're at the radio of the first heat. We're the end of the FIR and then in the first heat and I'm Greg biffle wins the first heat, which was I was pretty sick. It is very nice. It is very nice pot racing and damage and everything, but they inverted it. So Pot racy led the beginning of the second now and he fell back to I forgot who like took the lead right after that. You know, acces, I think it was Kobe. No, Kobe A to get through the field first. Is Bit falling. Kobe kind of got through the field rather quickly. I can't do and camera look. So, Oh, wasn't Michael Wat trip? Oh yeah, Mikey did leave some yeah, for a while there. Yeah, at Michael Watcher got out front, you got the huge lead, biggest lead to night by far of any. Yeah, it was a good like maybe like half or straightaway lead, maybe even more. Any pulled out there until a cause she came out for I think it was willy to rib spun. Yeah, you just really shout the corner. Yeah, and then Elio cash, your Nevis, he didn't really see it any didn't really check up and just nailed the back of Greg biffle and Greg biffle didn't get that much damage. I don't know why. I went to buy. Yeah, Elio got the most damage. I don't know why biffle once you backup car before biffle's was all internal damage. That's part. Yeah. So, yeah, it's then Greg biffle went to a backup car and they that restart it and Michael is battling with was it Kobit this one? I think, yeah, I think yeah. At this point they're battling a lot and we go through at their battling really hard and I think this is where as is for Michael Gets Spun. Or was it like later in it? No, Michael Gas one later. He just yeah, Kobe. Kobe passed him and then just like proceeded to dominate the rest of that he before the main event there was gea. There was a lay pass for to lead it in the heat because, like, Michael Watsrip led like the final like couple minutes and then, unlike the last laber, like two to go in the heat, Doug Kobe passed Michael Watsrip. The fans were electric and everything was really cool. It's just like the local boy one the heat. That was really cool. The main the main stared for a little later than a chimney. Yeah, Bill Elliott had problems in the main because he's stalled before you from the start and it'll be disappointing. Yeah, he lost hours and then, yeah, he was actually pulling the fastest laps, one of the fastest laps, and he won. I don't know they said in the broadcasting now, but they said it. Yeah, they didn't. Yeah, so bally was one of the fastest. He won and he was finally yetting's rhythm down and kind of sucks that he got it went like that. He would later pulled behind the wall into the garage, not much later into...

...the heat. Has Pretty Disappointing anyways. Yet so Kobe and Greg but for all kind of dominate the next couple parts and Tony Stories to they were. Yeah, they all three of them were up there. But before we get by Kobe for a second and then coobe get back by him for a while and like it just seemed that no one could really compete with those two in the whole in the entire field. But I mean it's not a surprise on Kobe's part, since he has what thirty one Wednesday or something like that. Yeah, thirty one. Yeah, so he absolutely was just dominating it in that main event. It was kind of it was it was cool, but at the same time it was kind of like all right, or is a field really made of a bunch of superstars and the local legends just going to beat him every week? or or what are we going to see? Like it's just a bit of foreshadowing or no? Yeah, I'm scared of kind of the door races now because like Tony Store, who also really has like dirt experience, that's like a regular there just taking under present began, is running the two dirt tracks. Yeah, degans running the two dirt tracks. Yeah, Tony Store and before. I don't know how much experience. He hasn't dirt tracks. Well, he won't be running he won't be running those. Oh yeah, that car. Yeah, I'm honestly, in terms of dirt there's a much experience. I mean Bill Allie ran the prelude to the dream. Hell, yeah, I think like nine isn't waiting anything, I feel like. I mean he's doing better than Willie let ribs, Lady Ribs. Yes, when I lap down before the first caution, he won. It was as kind of sad to wash, but but no, Kobe. Kobe there absolutely put on a show. Just dim it all. I feel like Michael might do good on dirt. Yeah, did he? Did he start out on the dirt tracks? Some that, I would think. So. Give him where he is from. This is this is what we need, a like Kenny Wallsh someone like that, because he would he would be a top driver and like this series and total. I feel like the only thing they're worried about with him is his is his uncenteredness. We need that brow. That'll add to the popularity. D grow it. It's mainly just Greg Biffo and what's just named, Doug Kobe and Kobe, they couldn't really good. He might be on here. Dude, what are you doing? What? Oh God. So it was mainly them too in the front, and then Tony Store was mainly like three of fourth alories, but he really didn't have to speed the lap times to contend and get up there with front to at some point he was battling with Doug Kobe. At some point. I'm not sure, because this was when Greg Beflo was Michael. Yeah, this Greg biffle was starting to come through the field and stuff like that. And well, then you had mark code take it three wide on a restart. Yeah, I kind of jumbled things up for your second and I could have bit him in the ass lad or in the race. Yeah, Marco took a three wide and then like two laps later he lost the leaded dug to know not to Kobe piffle, biffle's right. Yeah, then later on Marco ended up cutting down his right front. So I it's mainly just biffore and Doug cobe did a finish there and the laps of wind and down pretty quickly and Doug had like a good like half a second, maybe like a...

...ten to bit less, and he was kind of being consistent. I'm around the track with Greg biffle and then, like you mentioned, Marco and ready with like three to go or something like that, I mean more like five to go, he cut down a tire. Yeah, and the second that happened, the second everyone saw that it could a tire and tire staying sit up and they were like doing like emotion whatever, and they were like throw out, throw at the cars. Throughout the caution. Everyone was just like yelling everything. It was it was crazy and I was hoping for caution at that point, I think, and of course the caution came out. And on the restart, I guess Doug just Gott a really good starts. Good, he got a hell of restarted. Yeah, I know, he cold. Yeah, he cleared BIFFIL and it was much over there. Biffil phrased him clean all race and write to the finish and Kobe won the inaugural es the Rex Race Stafford, which is a it was really cool to watch. And then he immediately fell off his car when he got out of it. Yeah, he he slipped up the flag because they have the flag right on the door, right there, which I saw that. I was just like, Oh my God, the crowd he got out of the cars, it was like cheer everything and I Would F oh, awesome. Yeah, yeah, it's about it was really it was a really, really good race, I would say. I enjoyed it, and CBS to the hell of a job with the broadcast like they it's watching that and then watching in the car this weekend. It's just like and then you we've turned on NASCAR and you're like, what the what the hell is this Fox doing? What the Hell is Fox doing? Like it's just a disappointment. One flaw in Ester rext the entires there was a competition caution that, like wasn't scheduled, but it would just like to make the fiction. Didn't mind that. I didn't mind that. I didn't think it was needed because, like everyone, even though it was kind of single file, there was still a pretty good battle front. There was like kind of close battles in midpack. I didn't I don't think it was needed, especially with what it was like fifty five left and the main or it was just an entertainment caution. That's what it was. Yeah, I think it might have been one of those TV questions. Yeah, maybe that, but honestly, if that's the case, I don't mind it because then we're not missing any green flag racing from the TV viewership point of view, and that was the good thing. They went to side by side with that when, Um, they would, you know, have whatever commercials during Green flags runs. They would go side by side instead of full screen commercial yeah, the watch. I skimmed through the racary plan on Youtube. I just kind of came through it and I heard, I saw a lot of criticism towards Adanika on the booth. I kind of remind her she wasn't that she wasn't good, but she didn't do that bad. I've noticed a lot that anything identicod does, people would artomatically just hate her for it. I just feel like I really for people criticize her because she was in the booth of best would like you're not gonna you not, no one's going to be close. was to him in the booth. So that's just not a it's not fair to like compare the to basically, I don't know. I I thought people would being a little too harsh because of the fact that she was in the booth for festival. So, yeah, it's pretty harsh...

...as that pretty much. As for as REX, you know we're going to have one right next weekend, this weekend actually at El Dora, the next races. No, I thought it was Knoxville. Knocks fell staring out. Yeah, oh it is. Yeah, I thought it was Knoxville. Yeah, it's knocks. So, Oh, it is Knoxville knocks for then. Yeah, yeah, it is thick. It is spaced off. The dirt trucks a little back there. Yeah, probably, but you know, I would to put Lucas are in between knocks, fell and door. Yeah, that's anyway. So it's going to be. It's going to be got five more weeks of this and if they're anything like this past weekend, it's going to be a great six weeks of Saturday night racing to watch. Yeah, I'm really excited for it. But yeah, I guess we've got to talk about Detroit. Or do we want to talk about fans? There's and there's not. You must talk about the try, I mean race one completely scorershower guys to be be fucked. Is the other way to would it was overshadowed by two things, Felix rose and Chris big crash. Yeah, it's throttle stuck and it's Oh my God, that was gnashing head. My God. Yeah, I have a neck brace around on me. Had to be transport to the hospital. Thankfully he's okay now. But is he cleared? The race next weekend or this week idea? I don't love he's been cleared yet, but he was out and he wasn't able and he was able to go to the track if you wanted to to, you know, spectate on Sunday, but I feel like that's so hard to do as the driver to be injured and watch someone else in your cargo my I mean I don't blame him for us to kind of resting up a little bit too. Yeah, I mean he literally just went into a wallet hundred sixty miles an hour. So, yeah, it was also overshouted by will power. was there was a red flag or something with it was the right side with my girl John's wreck. Yeah, would fight to go with five to go in the race and well powers card and not start back up and that gave Marcus Ericson the lead and what would become his first career when an indy car, another XF one driver getting his first win high an indy car. Yeah, yeah, that was huh. As a pen I can't, I can't. I'm not engage Marcus Areson thinks. So I'm not really going to complain or like, yeah, I don't really mind it at all. This kind of I just thought it was disappointing because will powers had like such a struggle for the season so far. In the one race where he looks like he's going to get his group back, he gets absolutely screwed over by race control. Yeah, yeah, they it's painful. Fone did this set back. Who indie car's doing it this past weekend. I feel like both of them are watching a little too much nascar and went the entertaining finishes. I'll be there. I'll be the first one to say it. They're both used too, too much NASCAR. I just don't get it, like I get you guys want to finish the races under green, but like two cares of a race. It was a hot weekend in Michigan and especially in Detroit. So, yeah, his eathyu heating up there, overheating and dude, that was frustrating. That's frustrating. Everyone forgets even happened INSA dude. Oh well, that's because no one...

...even talks about it. That weekend I would just watch dy car. I watched like two minutes of it. But what one cool thing. Magnus and God is imp so win versims win, or did he? Yeah, you want the pole here about it? Yeah, it was barely even like talked about because, of course, like Nascar, is the REX and Indi Karnikar leads like overshadow. I don't blame it. I mean like Bay, that's good for Ke magasine. Yeah, both him. I'm really honed whin. Yeah, right do. Are Love to see grow Jean Whim but at the same time, like it's a recruit racing car. I don't want to see a win. I'm fun with like a maybe, like a few podiums. I mean if it winds, but like I feel like a couple podiums maybe, like one would be he would be good enough for like a first season, I guess. Yeah, I mean he's going to run gateway to do so. He's going to do one of the ovals. So that'd be cool. I've had that's kind of preparation for next year run. I think Indy Carr would like mentioned it. Like he's probably going to do like fulltime Indie car next year. I hope so, because then we get a shoe test of him versus mcclough club in terms of their experience and all this, and that got to be cool to see. Yeah, so moving on the Sunday, the Detroit race was really, really good. Heard start new guarded dominated most of it. He Won. Yeah, I mean he led sixty seven of the seventy something laps, I think. So, yeah, he didn't end. It all came down to basically when the final caution did come out from groachdown again. That was hard to see, but uh yeah, he was left on old reds. Oh No, the final caution. Oh wait, the caution that started all the cautions. It was Johnson was. Oh yeah, he started it going around turn one. Johnson was having his best races the season by far. He was. He was top to when I'm no, like at like a twenty two or something car field. That's not a zing like twenty five, maybe twenty five. He was. He was top twenty and on the lap with what was it like, ten ors to go over whatever, maybe more. Yeah, really good run for him and it kind of sucks that I kind of ended this way, but it gains a little bit of hope for him. And anyways, that started a good bit of cautions and on the restart award had the best tires and almost like award was about mania. It was crazy. Like he on the restart, I think it was, first he took a he took gray home the turn on the first restart and then and the second restart. Yeah, and you took both of them on the restart. Yeah, and then the second restart he took Pollo. Yeah, and then he what did he do? He got to heard A. Forget where it was, but then on the lab that was three to go when him and new garden got it off in the corner leading to the back stretch or whatever you want to call it, because it's not really straight at all. But new garden basically slid it out of the corner and almost put it in the wall. How he didn't I don't know. But award went Oh, you screwed up my now and he pulled...

...away quick. I don't know how much he won by, but it was he pulled a thank five or six seconds and new Guardeni Eveno. I didn't when needed amazing job staying in second. There is I don't know. It was crazy how he held on there with such old tires and like Pullo and heard a back. They're just breathing down his neck. Oh yeah, but but yeah, I'm a ward one and he has the points lead now by one point. It's amazing. It's fantastic scenes that I hope I'm not going to the season thinking they could be a championship contender. I mean it's looking like award and Pollo could be battling dickon because Dickson isn't as dominant this early as it was last year. It's definitely showing Dixon sit in thirty six back right now. I looked at the standings before we started recording. No, it's definitely interesting to see guys just almost out running Dixon, like we're not we're now used to that. Yeah, he's not. It's not like he's having like any misfortunes really. It's like all overall pace that he's kind of losing by here. Yeah, and it's crazy the fact that the guys that are competing with him aren't even the pence keeper game and it's the younger guys. Yeah, I mean I even I didn't even think Pullo is really capable of doing this this early or whatever, like even with the win, I didn't think that it could carry this high up in the points and like kind of like stand his ground as long and B as consistent. I mean he almost went indie, he was top five and he got a podium at Detroit. Yeah, it's definitely interesting to see. Right. I actually enjoy the seeing the younger guys now starting to compete and we're seeing that across the board in terms of motor sports in the US. Yeah, it's all see you now. With, because you see the guys of the NASCAR. You see brad struggling, you see car fixed struggling, even though Brad has a win. But they're they just can't keep up with the Hendrick Bunch. But they're also they're also in Hendred cars. But it's the fact that their average age is what, twenty six? Yeah, something like that. Yeah, that UNs are your team. Is still what I think. Larston's the oldest at twenty eight. Yay's twenty eight. Yeah, so all three of them are under thirty and sitting what, top six in the point, top seven. We're really a minute. Oh No, Bomans boments eleven, but the yeah, but Larsen Chasing Byron our second, third and fourth, and Larston is closing in on Benny's points. Leave. It's forty seven now. Damn. Yeah, it was what eighty sticks or something like that? Was it before the Hendrick car started getting absolutely on fire? But no, it's it's nice to see you. It is nice to see the young guys battling you ups board, especially at Ti. Gives to oh yeah, so in Ti, gibbs in the mininning are in the mix, and I wouldn't I honestly want to complains, but tie gibbs and s rex instead of like Haley. Whatever. I want to complain. I feel like maybe not this year, but we could see it next year. Maybe next year ran alow depends if he wants to, if he goes full time and exfinity or trucks or something like that. Maybe the anything can't if the schedule as a plant is favor. I hope to God that he doesn't do trucks. There's no point in that...

...now. Yeah, it's pretty pointless. Yeah, be stupid and that's better for Indie car pretty much. Let's go on to the the Allstar race. Whatever. Do you even need to talk about it? I mean, we've already talked about the three all star races this weekend. There's not an actual all star race. That happen. Yeah, we have an all star race every week in Nastar. It's pretty pointless. Saw, it's all a huge gimmick. It's kind of right, O course, specially since, like I feel like if they started changing the tracks a long time ago, the way it was intended to be. But like I feel like if I'm changing at display and like change the Bristol and like the Bristol's race. They change in numbers. That wasn't a fan favorite. The lights weren't that good, the race wasn't that good, and then they went to Texas and that exwing itself. I mean Texas bad, and that's kind of it's kind of killed. Got Awful. Oh my God, they're just killing. It's going down. It's going down with the class really not both both them were so bad. Now, yeah, if they should, I want to. I would be fine if mask or either would just pick like really good tracks, like some of the batter tracks, to put the Austin race back or just put it back at Charlotte and you leave it at Charlotte again, because that's where we're all used to and that's will be all. Like, no one even really complained after a while that. Oh why is IT START CHARLOTTE? Like it was never really boring. Literally, no one complained about it being at Charlotte. Yeah, like it's just something we were accustomed to. Yeah, and I feel like I didn't notice as until dimension to open. But like the travel for the teams, like I feel like it's too much for, especially for small teams, to raise what was like forty fifty laps and open just to go back from Texas torth Carolina. Like I don't feel like it's worth it for that travel when they could just drive back and forth really quick. And at Charlotte when did? When they can spend forty five minutes going down the road. So what, what is it? Just fifteen, sixteen hours to Texas? Yeah, stupid. It is pretty so I never really realize the travel problem of it until the kind of mention until, like, you know, Track House and my Eric Jones kind of went through it. They're like, well, back to Charlotte. I'm like, Damn, yeah, it's crazy. Yeah, I mean the Allstar race dominated by hundrick again. Did all four of them win a stage or something like that, because I don't think. Bowman didn't know. Bowman did Boman. Moman did Bowman one stage three, because they blaming one to did and then Byron, one one correct Byron. One one Byron won the F one stage Byron. When the first? Now Byron? When the first? And then I did he I thought Elliott won them get because Elliot blocked iron a win the thirty lap stage and then Larson won the huge thing, all of it. So they all want to stage and even notice that that's kind of fucking ridiculous at this point. I keep scarn I don't mean to, but it's just like it's kind of getting to the point where it's just like hundred so dominant. There's no way to just not describe it. Back it's yeah, not. Yeah, I mean they haven't lost a race since May nine. Yeah, it's we're seeing the return of Hendrick just saying face to the field a weekly basis.

They're doing one even more than because it's now all four of me. Used to be just like used to be just Gordon and Johnson and like in two thousand and twelve it was like two thousand and twenty one, like one year, or like one or to a piece or whatever. I think junior had the lowest at two wins junior season, when in two thousand and twelve only only one. and OK, see had in two thousand and two thousand and fourteen, the three out of the three of them had them for a piece and can and one. That's probably their best. Yeah, that was like the last year of Heaven drink really being a full team. Yeah, Cuz in cane struggled in fifteen and then Gordon retired and fifteen Juni con cushion in sixteen and Johnson just died off. Well, Johnson was Johnson. Yeah, the last couple of years of his career. Yeah, this is so in painful. Death really slet me. It's kind of continued in indy car, but he's progressing. Yeah, until so rookie mistake. So so, yeah, he wanted a car with high worst power. He's getting it's it's challenging for him. Yeah, I mean like that's about up for the All star raised. Honestly, I mean like that finish was pretty good for the first like five laps of the final ten laps of this, the final segment whatever with Brad, Elliott and Morrison. Like once Larsen cleared Brad, I feel like we all do that, like it was over. Was Game over. Yeah, because, like Brad had no help and we all know like Elliott and gonna help Brad and you can't pass a car. You can't really pass. I like Brady Brad rises. Yeah, Rad try it all right out there, but I really can't do much after that. Yeah, that about it. We can go fantasy real quick. Were the fantasy? Real quick? You Have Bell Swerez, Bubba and Byron. At your scosal hold that. We have polcono coming up. We have Nashville this week, Pocono doubleheader and Roade America. So I have I've I iron Wallace Bell Swarz, Yep. Yeah, so I'm going to take a wall this week. That was my plan. Okay, all right, there have the skim driver, says nick it all. Nick can take a Parson. He's got Elliott, elmrol and Hamilton to choose from. I have curd of available. I'm going to take curt as it's a concrete trick. Men will forgot. Whatever the hell, Nick points. WHOSE PICK? But yeah, Doctor Frantasy, WHO's your one? WHO's your wants to watch this weekend? Ones the watch? Yeah, the pencey duo, Brad and Joe, because they both have exfinity wins at Nashville, multipucks, finity wins at Basha Nashville. So I think do good. But of course, like they're not hendrews. WHO's the one you're staying away from? Staying away from that's kind of hard. Sin's like it's an oval. So like, HMM, I'm going to stay away from true rex true, I don't. I don't know, but I don't. I just don't see him doing that. Good. Fair enough. Who's my I...

...wanted told my wants to watch obviously going to be Kurt, as I've already pointed out. It's a concrete track. He seems to be pretty good at those. And then my other one is going to be Brad because, simply, again, it's a concrete track. He's known to be pretty good at them too, and to stay away from. You know what, I feel like Bowman's going to have a bad race if I want to stay away from but I think with that, with that, I think we are all set them. I think we're all set.
