Welcome the episode thirty of the NASCARhospot podcast. I'm Herstroy, drawn by Chris and Caden, and this weekwe're going to be talking about all that went on last week, because alot 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 somerumors and Austin. So the All star race. Witch. I'm not goingto say it didn't disappoint, but it wasn't that good. But we'll we'llget we'll get further into that. So let's get this started. How iseveryone doing today? All story suck. Oh No, I thought it wasa move outside of NASCAR. Is a good weekend and racing? Agree withthat? I think so. I think it was. Yeah, they wereat Texas for every track this weekend. Yeah, it has a bad weekend. Yeah, I know, as you were there and I wish one inan over series and drawn underknee my check one again. Oh well, Iwas bound. Yeah, it was a pretty us, a pretty boring weekend. God, I'm a Nascar and then if they're not took about, ohmy God, it's just it just kept getting worse. They could white Texaswill white taxes. All Star race needs to change every year. You know, that's what I think. I think it should change every year. Ithink it should go or at least have like a rotation of tracks. Youknow, like it's a good idea if you had to pick five tracks torotate the all star Rayes, go, oh, Daytona, Dago, Bristol. I put Charlotte back in there. I think Charlotte still like a keypart, 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'llsay. I'll say you know, I'll say Richmond. No, I'll sayvagus, lost bagas. Vegas would be an interesting one. Since homes,you have, since homestead, all lost. It's it's time as a financially butas 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'realready there. For the clash, whether it be the road course orthe whole oval. So it's already getting one non points playing race. Iwould do out of the rotation of Charlotte, Bristol, Richmond. I'd a vagueguess. Yeah, then I'd want to go to also, like Iwant to see him do it a gateway to go to some fellow doesn't havea points race and I I don't want to see them leap standalone. NotNot Be Nice is by, but I wouldn't want them to do a roadcourse. I don't think road course. So no all star race. Youknow, no road course is an all star race won't be that great becauseit's like it's hard to race like like a hundred percent and a stock carout of road course like they're more like technical and stuff like that. Andthen you can't really be clause if you're going to shorten the race. Itto 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 starRais because they'd only be three guys. That'd be anything worth not vating inthat. Let's get into the truck race.

...was first on one pm what's itaim it Saturday. Yeah, so I don't think anything really. Buton 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 bitthere, 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 Fand like half the rays of the season, coming back to trucks,winning like twenty of the twenty two races on the schedule. Gonna go backto 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 describea logical response to that one. Yeah, we're just gonna move on from goodignore that. Yeah, she's Sally was awesome on that race. Um, yeah, wow, that I'm situ. Want to stage and mean you didn'tdo bad. You Got Second. Yeah, John Hunter Dominating. Grantand finger should have gotten a playoff wai. For a long time ago, butI guess it's too late. But he's still like racking up top fivesand 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 notreally too much to know down and in the truck series, it seems Imean, no one really had a bad day. So for creed, andthen John Hunter kept doing John Hunter things. Yeah, I mean thinks John JoshBarry getting eleven all, that's right, he did run. He run.Yeah, ten, Rando, twenty five and or twenty five, twentyfive, yeah, nothing else. Matt Grafton was got off a race onthe Will God. Yeah, twenty and I heard, I think he wasrunning around there all day. It was bad. Yeah, I mean that'sabout it. So playoffs in a truck series. Johnny starter actually fell outafter this week and I believe he did. So, yeah, he follow he'sI go by eight or something like that. Yeah, out by andChandler Smith is now in. Finally, it seems like that like that lastplayoff 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 stillhas 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 thetrucks. Were want to say that's only four or five years. I forgetwhere they said it ends, but I remember like looking before. I thinkwalking schoolen is the cut off. Oh yeah, one cousin is the cutoff. Oh yeah, because it's Knocksville, walking SCUN. We would have beenthat 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 theweek kept wet foreshadowing was the SR rex. What do you sex years? I was there. I was there...

...all day at Stanford and it wasan amazing time. I got there at zero am, an hour before theyhates open. Out'll you chilling there and it was fun. We got totalk to a lot of people. I met Kenny and Kenny's nice, buthe'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, heis tall, campaire. He's he's a full foot taller than you. Thatanyways, are going to move on the roads of like that. So Um, yeah, yeah, I mean it was prettymos just hanging out on hangingout, walking around before were hand, before like the modified race and stufflike that. You know, we got our tickets, we got inside thegates, we got the tickets for the autograph session, which was at thirty. So we had like two hours to kill, and the kind of likekilled that. went an autograph session and it was disappointing as hell because wewould in this long line and we were almost there and I had like ahuge bag full of like die cass and stuff like that. I was allim 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 guessthe 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 tobring like all this stuff and it was so disappointing. kind of like killedthe move for like a good like thirty minutes. So any anyways, Iwas 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. Therewas a lot of stuff there. There's like me you. There was theregularly like hot dog, hamburger, chicken under stuff. There was a there'sa car. I got fried oreos because fried ores are tap. Oh myGod, I love you. Are you complain about? I got a outthis 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 likeI 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 fanof it, but you know, fried words of Fried oreos. Anyways, I know. So anyways, I got them and between the modifiers stufflike that. Yeah, they had a lot of they had a lot ofthings 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 graphSuchi and everything, we hang out, we have a good like thirty minutesand then the modified race starts and it was. It was a really goodrace because you could see in the crowd that like people who go to staffwere wormally like the local guys that, you know, all the guys thatare racing a modified race, and they there's mixed emotions everywhere about like somepeople hate this guy, the people like this guy, and it's like Ihad no clue who any of these guys are, but like Pe, otherpeople know who there are. Is Pretty cool to see all the mixed emotionsthere and kind of just root for a random guy. I read for aguy his car said toast on it, like like toast, it's just atoast and I don't know. It just said toast. It was it wasa sponsor that just said toast and I'm like that sick toast car. Imean it kind of it kind of did bad. I mean its top fiveand then he just sled back and the invert. Who Are you nice?Back, there's a bandwagon. Now, I don't know what. He fellback and Jordan Reagan, yeah, try it. He felt like yeah,I don't like once he started befalling back and I'm like, well, Iguess I doesn't watch now. It was a pretty it was a pretty goodbattle. There was like a father and...

...son the racing there bat on andstuff like that. Anyways, after that, after the modified races, a couplehours to kill again and and then Sr x Ray started and that's whenthe stands car started getting packed and everything and I met Alan Bestvik. Youknow, it was sick because my see teach were like two rows in frontof the booth so I could turn around. I get just like waved out inBestwick and Dannikat Patrick in there and stuff like that. It was itwas really awesome. I said, that's Foos. Oh look at this thislittle midgets waving at me. Wonder what he wants put all, he's gota three stout, a fried oreos and his hand. Oh my God,he went me fat. Wow. They move on and you could really seelike how big it was that during a national television. They I did notknow 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. Hewas like okay, like authority, minutes until we go like national and everythingon 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 startedgoing everywhere and it was it was a crazy three started and there's a lotof Tony Store friends. There, a lot of like the merch that yousaw ever'm wearing was like Tony Store, and then there was also like allkinds 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 funtime. The entire race was fun to watch because there's battles most of thetime and I guess it's a bad it all right. I noticed from watchingit that. Okay, so as soon as I turned on the broadcast,because I turn it down like right before the race started, they had likethe whole intro and everything and then best week's four stame on. I waslike, Huh, chills, like literal chills. The moment I started hearingthis man dog, I was like cool, you know, it's a really goingto be good. And then the race, you can just didn't disappointat all. Like they had the first maybe but fifteen mini heat. Thefirst like five minutes of the first heat was kind of them all feeling outthe car, it seemed like, and then after the o they're like allright, let's go. Yeah, they had a rest after that. Ithink the one race you got turned around. Yeah, so pop choose to gotturned around it. But like I think after a heat the field gotinverted and that's an everyone started pushing it to where they were like side byside, pushing on the outside on the restarts and everything. Like they diddn'tdo that. I'm beginning, but like they've really pushed on. Never restartafter that and it was sad up to buy side for like four to fivelaps for most guys remember, like Doug Kobe and Tony Store, Greg biffwhen I think Annie, maybe we're pretty whistle save a little bit that firststage. Nice, we're heat that first heat. Sorry, the first heat. Nice, it's here. Is he running full time? No, he'sgoing 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 ofpiece. 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 trendoslike we're silver wine one. Yeah, you know, the worst red bullcar, 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 stuffand 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, butlike it pretty much like just rock. They guy drop back. He dropped. It lurks and bomb. Now or bomb. Where were at? We'reat the radio of the first heat. We're the end of the FIR andthen in the first heat and I'm Greg biffle wins the first heat, whichwas I was pretty sick. It is very nice. It is very nicepot racing and damage and everything, but they inverted it. So Pot racyled the beginning of the second now and he fell back to I forgot wholike took the lead right after that. You know, acces, I thinkit was Kobe. No, Kobe A to get through the field first.Is Bit falling. Kobe kind of got through the field rather quickly. Ican'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, biggestlead to night by far of any. Yeah, it was a good likemaybe like half or straightaway lead, maybe even more. Any pulled out thereuntil a cause she came out for I think it was willy to rib spun. Yeah, you just really shout the corner. Yeah, and then Eliocash, your Nevis, he didn't really see it any didn't really check upand just nailed the back of Greg biffle and Greg biffle didn't get that muchdamage. I don't know why. I went to buy. Yeah, Eliogot the most damage. I don't know why biffle once you backup car beforebiffle's was all internal damage. That's part. Yeah. So, yeah, it'sthen Greg biffle went to a backup car and they that restart it andMichael 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 throughat their battling really hard and I think this is where as is for MichaelGets Spun. Or was it like later in it? No, Michael Gasone later. He just yeah, Kobe. Kobe passed him and then just likeproceeded to dominate the rest of that he before the main event there wasgea. 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 Kobepassed Michael Watsrip. The fans were electric and everything was really cool. It'sjust like the local boy one the heat. That was really cool. The mainthe main stared for a little later than a chimney. Yeah, BillElliott had problems in the main because he's stalled before you from the start andit'll be disappointing. Yeah, he lost hours and then, yeah, hewas actually pulling the fastest laps, one of the fastest laps, and hewon. I don't know they said in the broadcasting now, but they saidit. 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 sucksthat he got it went like that. He would later pulled behind the wallinto 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 coupleparts and Tony Stories to they were. Yeah, they all three of themwere up there. But before we get by Kobe for a second and thencoobe get back by him for a while and like it just seemed that noone 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 whatthirty one Wednesday or something like that. Yeah, thirty one. Yeah,so he absolutely was just dominating it in that main event. It was kindof it was it was cool, but at the same time it was kindof like all right, or is a field really made of a bunch ofsuperstars and the local legends just going to beat him every week? or orwhat are we going to see? Like it's just a bit of foreshadowing orno? Yeah, I'm scared of kind of the door races now because likeTony Store, who also really has like dirt experience, that's like a regularthere 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, hewon'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. Imean Bill Allie ran the prelude to the dream. Hell, yeah, Ithink like nine isn't waiting anything, I feel like. I mean he's doingbetter than Willie let ribs, Lady Ribs. Yes, when I lap down beforethe first caution, he won. It was as kind of sad towash, 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 seriesand total. I feel like the only thing they're worried about with him ishis 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 itwas mainly them too in the front, and then Tony Store was mainly likethree of fourth alories, but he really didn't have to speed the lap timesto contend and get up there with front to at some point he was battlingwith Doug Kobe. At some point. I'm not sure, because this waswhen Greg Beflo was Michael. Yeah, this Greg biffle was starting to comethrough the field and stuff like that. And well, then you had markcode take it three wide on a restart. Yeah, I kind of jumbled thingsup for your second and I could have bit him in the ass lador in the race. Yeah, Marco took a three wide and then liketwo 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 rightfront. So I it's mainly just biffore and Doug cobe did a finish thereand the laps of wind and down pretty quickly and Doug had like a goodlike half a second, maybe like a...

...ten to bit less, and hewas 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 somethinglike that, I mean more like five to go, he cut down atire. Yeah, and the second that happened, the second everyone saw thatit could a tire and tire staying sit up and they were like doing likeemotion whatever, and they were like throw out, throw at the cars.Throughout the caution. Everyone was just like yelling everything. It was it wascrazy and I was hoping for caution at that point, I think, andof course the caution came out. And on the restart, I guess Dougjust Gott a really good starts. Good, he got a hell of restarted.Yeah, I know, he cold. Yeah, he cleared BIFFIL and itwas much over there. Biffil phrased him clean all race and write tothe finish and Kobe won the inaugural es the Rex Race Stafford, which isa it was really cool to watch. And then he immediately fell off hiscar when he got out of it. Yeah, he he slipped up theflag because they have the flag right on the door, right there, whichI saw that. I was just like, Oh my God, the crowd hegot out of the cars, it was like cheer everything and I WouldF oh, awesome. Yeah, yeah, it's about it was really it wasa really, really good race, I would say. I enjoyed it, and CBS to the hell of a job with the broadcast like they it'swatching that and then watching in the car this weekend. It's just like andthen you we've turned on NASCAR and you're like, what the what the hellis this Fox doing? What the Hell is Fox doing? Like it's justa disappointment. One flaw in Ester rext the entires there was a competition cautionthat, 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 wasneeded 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 battlesin midpack. I didn't I don't think it was needed, especially withwhat it was like fifty five left and the main or it was just anentertainment caution. That's what it was. Yeah, I think it might havebeen one of those TV questions. Yeah, maybe that, but honestly, ifthat's the case, I don't mind it because then we're not missing anygreen flag racing from the TV viewership point of view, and that was thegood thing. They went to side by side with that when, Um,they would, you know, have whatever commercials during Green flags runs. Theywould 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 itand I heard, I saw a lot of criticism towards Adanika on thebooth. I kind of remind her she wasn't that she wasn't good, butshe 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 forpeople criticize her because she was in the booth of best would like you'renot gonna you not, no one's going to be close. was to himin the booth. So that's just not a it's not fair to like comparethe to basically, I don't know. I I thought people would being alittle 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 foras REX, you know we're going to have one right next weekend, thisweekend actually at El Dora, the next races. No, I thought itwas 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 betweenknocks, fell and door. Yeah, that's anyway. So it's going tobe. It's going to be got five more weeks of this and if they'reanything like this past weekend, it's going to be a great six weeks ofSaturday night racing to watch. Yeah, I'm really excited for it. Butyeah, I guess we've got to talk about Detroit. Or do we wantto talk about fans? There's and there's not. You must talk about thetry, I mean race one completely scorershower guys to be be fucked. Isthe other way to would it was overshadowed by two things, Felix rose andChris big crash. Yeah, it's throttle stuck and it's Oh my God,that was gnashing head. My God. Yeah, I have a neck bracearound on me. Had to be transport to the hospital. Thankfully he's okaynow. 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'table and he was able to go to the track if you wanted toto, you know, spectate on Sunday, but I feel like that's so hardto do as the driver to be injured and watch someone else in yourcargo my I mean I don't blame him for us to kind of resting upa little bit too. Yeah, I mean he literally just went into awallet hundred sixty miles an hour. So, yeah, it was also overshouted bywill power. was there was a red flag or something with it wasthe right side with my girl John's wreck. Yeah, would fight to go withfive to go in the race and well powers card and not start backup and that gave Marcus Ericson the lead and what would become his first careerwhen an indy car, another XF one driver getting his first win high anindy car. Yeah, yeah, that was huh. As a pen Ican't, I can't. I'm not engage Marcus Areson thinks. So I'm notreally 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 hadlike such a struggle for the season so far. In the one race wherehe looks like he's going to get his group back, he gets absolutely screwedover by race control. Yeah, yeah, they it's painful. Fone did thisset back. Who indie car's doing it this past weekend. I feellike both of them are watching a little too much nascar and went the entertainingfinishes. 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, likeI get you guys want to finish the races under green, but liketwo cares of a race. It was a hot weekend in Michigan and especiallyin Detroit. So, yeah, his eathyu heating up there, overheating anddude, that was frustrating. That's frustrating. Everyone forgets even happened INSA dude.Oh well, that's because no one...

...even talks about it. That weekendI 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, likeNascar, is the REX and Indi Karnikar leads like overshadow. I don't blameit. I mean like Bay, that's good for Ke magasine. Yeah,both him. I'm really honed whin. Yeah, right do. Are Loveto see grow Jean Whim but at the same time, like it's a recruitracing car. I don't want to see a win. I'm fun with likea maybe, like a few podiums. I mean if it winds, butlike I feel like a couple podiums maybe, like one would be he would begood enough for like a first season, I guess. Yeah, I meanhe's going to run gateway to do so. He's going to do oneof the ovals. So that'd be cool. I've had that's kind of preparation fornext year run. I think Indy Carr would like mentioned it. Likehe'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 termsof their experience and all this, and that got to be cool to see. Yeah, so moving on the Sunday, the Detroit race was really, reallygood. Heard start new guarded dominated most of it. He Won.Yeah, I mean he led sixty seven of the seventy something laps, Ithink. So, yeah, he didn't end. It all came down tobasically when the final caution did come out from groachdown again. That was hardto see, but uh yeah, he was left on old reds. OhNo, the final caution. Oh wait, the caution that started all the cautions. It was Johnson was. Oh yeah, he started it going aroundturn one. Johnson was having his best races the season by far. Hewas. He was top to when I'm no, like at like a twentytwo or something car field. That's not a zing like twenty five, maybetwenty five. He was. He was top twenty and on the lap withwhat was it like, ten ors to go over whatever, maybe more.Yeah, really good run for him and it kind of sucks that I kindof 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 restartaward had the best tires and almost like award was about mania. It wascrazy. Like he on the restart, I think it was, first hetook a he took gray home the turn on the first restart and then andthe second restart. Yeah, and you took both of them on the restart. Yeah, and then the second restart he took Pollo. Yeah, andthen he what did he do? He got to heard A. Forget whereit was, but then on the lab that was three to go when himand new garden got it off in the corner leading to the back stretch orwhatever 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 inthe 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 howmuch he won by, but it was he pulled a thank five or sixseconds 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 therewith such old tires and like Pullo and heard a back. They're just breathingdown his neck. Oh yeah, but but yeah, I'm a ward oneand he has the points lead now by one point. It's amazing. It'sfantastic scenes that I hope I'm not going to the season thinking they could bea championship contender. I mean it's looking like award and Pollo could be battlingdickon because Dickson isn't as dominant this early as it was last year. It'sdefinitely showing Dixon sit in thirty six back right now. I looked at thestandings before we started recording. No, it's definitely interesting to see guys justalmost 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'slike all overall pace that he's kind of losing by here. Yeah, andit's crazy the fact that the guys that are competing with him aren't even thepence keeper game and it's the younger guys. Yeah, I mean I even Ididn'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 thishigh up in the points and like kind of like stand his ground as longand B as consistent. I mean he almost went indie, he was topfive 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 tocompete and we're seeing that across the board in terms of motor sports in theUS. Yeah, it's all see you now. With, because you seethe guys of the NASCAR. You see brad struggling, you see car fixedstruggling, even though Brad has a win. But they're they just can't keep upwith 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 stillwhat 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, topsix 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 sticksor something like that? Was it before the Hendrick car started getting absolutely onfire? But no, it's it's nice to see you. It is niceto see the young guys battling you ups board, especially at Ti. Givesto oh yeah, so in Ti, gibbs in the mininning are in themix, and I wouldn't I honestly want to complains, but tie gibbs ands rex instead of like Haley. Whatever. I want to complain. I feellike maybe not this year, but we could see it next year.Maybe next year ran alow depends if he wants to, if he goes fulltime and exfinity or trucks or something like that. Maybe the anything can't ifthe schedule as a plant is favor. I hope to God that he doesn'tdo 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'sgo on to the the Allstar race. Whatever. Do you even need totalk about it? I mean, we've already talked about the three all starraces 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 prettypointless. Saw, it's all a huge gimmick. It's kind of right,O course, specially since, like I feel like if they started changing thetracks a long time ago, the way it was intended to be. Butlike I feel like if I'm changing at display and like change the Bristol andlike 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 thenthey went to Texas and that exwing itself. I mean Texas bad, and that'skind 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 reallynot both both them were so bad. Now, yeah, if they should, I want to. I would be fine if mask or either would justpick like really good tracks, like some of the batter tracks, to putthe Austin race back or just put it back at Charlotte and you leave itat Charlotte again, because that's where we're all used to and that's will beall. Like, no one even really complained after a while that. Ohwhy 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 wewere accustomed to. Yeah, and I feel like I didn't notice asuntil dimension to open. But like the travel for the teams, like Ifeel like it's too much for, especially for small teams, to raise whatwas 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 couldjust drive back and forth really quick. And at Charlotte when did? Whenthey can spend forty five minutes going down the road. So what, whatis it? Just fifteen, sixteen hours to Texas? Yeah, stupid.It is pretty so I never really realize the travel problem of it until thekind of mention until, like, you know, Track House and my EricJones kind of went through it. They're like, well, back to Charlotte. I'm like, Damn, yeah, it's crazy. Yeah, I meanthe Allstar race dominated by hundrick again. Did all four of them win astage 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 oneto did and then Byron, one one correct Byron. One one Byron wonthe F one stage Byron. When the first? Now Byron? When thefirst? And then I did he I thought Elliott won them get because Elliotblocked 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 thatthat'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'sjust 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 racesince May nine. Yeah, it's we're seeing the return of Hendrick just sayingface to the field a weekly basis.

They're doing one even more than becauseit's now all four of me. Used to be just like used to bejust Gordon and Johnson and like in two thousand and twelve it was like twothousand and twenty one, like one year, or like one or to a pieceor whatever. I think junior had the lowest at two wins junior season, when in two thousand and twelve only only one. and OK, seehad in two thousand and two thousand and fourteen, the three out of thethree of them had them for a piece and can and one. That's probablytheir best. Yeah, that was like the last year of Heaven drink reallybeing a full team. Yeah, Cuz in cane struggled in fifteen and thenGordon retired and fifteen Juni con cushion in sixteen and Johnson just died off.Well, Johnson was Johnson. Yeah, the last couple of years of hiscareer. Yeah, this is so in painful. Death really slet me.It's kind of continued in indy car, but he's progressing. Yeah, untilso rookie mistake. So so, yeah, he wanted a car with high worstpower. He's getting it's it's challenging for him. Yeah, I meanlike that's about up for the All star raised. Honestly, I mean likethat finish was pretty good for the first like five laps of the final tenlaps of this, the final segment whatever with Brad, Elliott and Morrison.Like once Larsen cleared Brad, I feel like we all do that, likeit was over. Was Game over. Yeah, because, like Brad hadno help and we all know like Elliott and gonna help Brad and you can'tpass 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 domuch after that. Yeah, that about it. We can go fantasy realquick. Were the fantasy? Real quick? You Have Bell Swerez, Bubba andByron. At your scosal hold that. We have polcono coming up. Wehave Nashville this week, Pocono doubleheader and Roade America. So I haveI've I iron Wallace Bell Swarz, Yep. Yeah, so I'm going to takea wall this week. That was my plan. Okay, all right, there have the skim driver, says nick it all. Nick can takea Parson. He's got Elliott, elmrol and Hamilton to choose from. Ihave 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? Butyeah, Doctor Frantasy, WHO's your one? WHO's your wants to watchthis weekend? Ones the watch? Yeah, the pencey duo, Brad and Joe, because they both have exfinity wins at Nashville, multipucks, finity winsat Basha Nashville. So I think do good. But of course, likethey're not hendrews. WHO's the one you're staying away from? Staying away fromthat'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. Idon'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 obviouslygoing 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 oneis 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 awayfrom. You know what, I feel like Bowman's going to have a badrace if I want to stay away from but I think with that, withthat, I think we are all set them. I think we're all set.
