Chris and Caden drop major hot takes near the end and Jay Mulder joins the show to briefly mention his WORC iRacing title and join the boys for the discussions.

But Thi videogo try tobreak it o Ha, be better about ill IEVER. Ame Planet worelcomesepisode, Twelve Nasro's about podcast, I'm S, Troy Jond by Chris Katen and Jayin today's episo. We're going to go over many crazy game, changing sillyseason stuff for two thousand and twenty one we're going to go over the weekend at the Starlett Rovo, whichwas histor in many different ways. So howis everyone doing fine, fine, Omin off a championship? Yes, Ja. Tellus how you brought Tan Ascra Hart spot truck to a championship. Well I mean so. We started at the back and R.Definitely the UNDU dog like to be honest. Going in there. I thought wehad no chance of winning it, but then they wrecked a few times up front andwe just avoid those recks and Maage to win the thing. So I mean you take whatyou didn' Get what series, what serieus was said thatyou were running in? Oh the work irasinsers. So let's get into the bignews. So we started out the the week last week with big news of Justinmarksons new team called Track House team track. Ous At theis team show AkRight Wa SA. I think it's just track. I as S traight up yeah, so he started a new team trackhouse thedriver will be Danoswars, itill, be the number. Ninety nine Chevrolet, O sorsis well starting next season, he's driven Ino every single manufacturerand coke and has only rasetrin call w husand and seventeen yeah he's ashmodern day dude. I think this is A. I think this is a good move for him. It's it seems like it's going to be betterequipment than obviously but he's getting at Gon brothers with having anarter affiliation it'll, be nice to see what he can do with anupgraded equipment and the fact that they do have a charger just to marks thinks that they can be aplayoff team, which you know you never know because of super speedways. But Iguess we'll just have to wait to find out to see how cannot go. Yeah sores is running top thirty andthirty fifth place equipment. You could arguebly runtop twentyn points. I meanit's a new team, so I don't know what I'm not going to have my expectationshigh, but I think early goal is the top twenty five points. Yeah I mean in my opinion, I think it'sa good place for him to land his feet, because Zami he's been across severaldifferent teams, the past few years and a is a chance to work with t a team andbuild them up and build themselfe up and get back to where he was back in wothousand and sixteen we on not tramping trip, yeah this's, definitely huge form.You got the RCR lines that they're going to have, so it won't be like ahundred percent like RCR car, but I'm predicting they' run near Richard Prettymore sports, if notbetter honestly thinks they can run betterthan Richard Petty Motor Sports, no matter who they put in that forty threecar, except for by resonits. I Jones Yeah, if it's Eri Jones eforty three aout running, but if it's not, I expect so as far as to Ouron the forty threecar, if its Layr Jones, I expect him to be a playoff contender. Bubbo is whattop Twentya points Thi season, yea f round Twenty Yeahik Twenty DosTwentyyeah Jones can definitely upot a...

...lot time. Only tell for that one. I know mark said that he's got a couple of fourtuen five hundred companies lookinginto sponsor them. It's not finalized yet, but if that's the case, they havemoney back in them, so they'll be able to obviously run better than what we thinkthey'd run so back to running on par better than the forty three yeah. Ifyou have money back in you, you cannot run them for sure. It's a Germain racing was it kind of replacement, but alsoupgrade in the sense to so that'll be good to see yeah sue, theyget the charter, it's rumored! No! It's not Romon anymore, David jus firedcharter yeah! No, I was confirmed that they have a theyr leasing. A charterfrom spire motor sports sispirer has three charters: Leasing, one to singone, the track Haus and then they're going to have two in two thousand andtwenty one over to team pensky and wood brothers racing wer. They announcedthat mactabededetto wioveris for whiper thirs racing in two thousand and twentyone, but not in two thousand and twenty two as Austin Sindric will be racingfull time for Woodbo is racing o two thousand and twenty two, and for twothousand and twenty one he'll be racing full COMEC, finity again for anotheryear with pensy and Woveras for Pensy and Select Cup racesin two thousand and twenty one. I was graing for you to get all thatout. That was a lot and that s aboutfo there for you yeah, I mean honestly. Idon't think I was really surprised. Yeah by this announcement, W Schel cameout last week. I didn't think sinjric would become full time next year. Iknew he would raise something in called next year, but I didn't think Ito'd befull time and I think the Benedetto I'm not a personally a debenedeto fan, butI think he definitely deserves one more year. I have my expectations a littlebit higher for what he did this year. I mean he hasn't had a substantially goodseason, but I think I think he can may he's going to make the playoffs nextyear if he has a season like this season, but I don't I want to say toget another good top ride. He's Goinna have to win next season. Oh he ans down he's gonna have to win. I don't want to say to minimum, but we could be looking at that. The onlyproblem with that is, we got Tho two thousand and twenty one schdule everyone's automacically going. OhChase Chase is going to have four five wins, but the thing is sindrics runningpart time when it was going to run road courses yeah the dudes going to beinsanely fast on them and it's a Pensky car. It's not like it's a you know.Second, wood brothers, car that woud brothers is building no, it's a fourthpensky car yeah. It's going to be stupid, fast yeah, soI mean I expect chase Elliott to win, maybe one or two roadcourse races nextyear. I don't know if I expect Sinde to win Roni, but I do expect him tocontent for wins and like it's going to be your same road course, players Ifeel like. I don't think we're going to have anyone new except Austin Syndric,be up. Fron Brisco, Oh yeah, BSCO, yeah that'll be apossibility. We got announce but, let's be honest,yeah yeah. We could see road course. ringers comeback that maybe we haven't seen in a while because of new tracks in theseries somining on then Dinger we could even see- and you never know especiallylie that' Yep. That's where I was going with that Yep Ilove Godude dude canraise road courses Ta no other, and he...

...doesn't care what he does for the win.I mean look at the two Warkins Gon races. He is yeah back to mack theMatta bededetto Chris added that he would have to haveone or two wins: I'm not denying that. I'm not sayingthat totally ad the picture, but I think it mainly depends on what ridesare open after two thousand and twenty one. The bigg thing about this that I likeabout him residing is that if they, if wood brothers kicked them out after twothousand and twenty, then his options are pretty limited and and they'remissing out on a good driver, a pretty good driver. So I feel like it's really fair forboth Mat and world brothers. Je just do one more year together, so wod brotherscan have like that that year, in between a Debedidetto andSindric, and then the BETOFDETTO can have one more year to improve on theteam, learn more from the team and maybe get a even better ride in twothousand and twenty one yeah I mean for Benedetto, I can't after two thousandand twenty one I can't think of any top rides that are going to be free. Theone I can think of is maybe the twenty four was that to two thousand andtwenty two O is that Til, two thousand and twenty one I believe, he's to twothousand and twenty two he might even be to o Thosandan twenty three yeah. Ican't think of many big top rods at Benedetto could get after I mean whoknows. Maybe some driver like randomly retires like Kurd Bush. He said hedoesn't know if he'll be back after next season, so that could be always anoption. Eric Camerolis signed for Onemore year, Danny Hamlan's contract,is rumored to be up at the end of two thousand and twenty one. So we neverknow with that. Yeah. Besides that the ten and you know the Passome, theslim possibility of the eleven would be the only upgrades from the twenty one,and I mean the ten I'm not saying Om rule is a bad driver. I don'tpersonally like Almarolla, I feel, like many other drivers could put go in thatten car and perform better than what Almarol is not bashing him not sayinghe's doing terrible. I mean he still made the playoffs, which is good. Hemade the run of twelve, which is better than what thirty other drivers. So Imean twenty eight other drivers, depending on what you want to say. So Imean he's a good driver, none the les, but I mean the Benedetto- couldpossibly be that replacement for the ten. That's depending if oumeroldoesn't get a reside. We we hod to move on to Clint Boyers, going to be Retang Ife,the two thousand and twenty season he is going to be going off into the Foxsports boothe thing. We have been dreaming about nothartres Atiring, butafter his attiring going into a broadcast booth, because when hecommentated expei races, he was amazing. We'vealways loved this personality, we're going to miss them on the TRECK,there's, not a single soul in the Nascar community, who hates Boyer for alegitimately good reason. Literally Clem boy is probably the hasthe best personality and all Nascar Right now, that's no debating it boy isgoing to be saving the fax booth, because we all know that that ishorrific right now, especially with how terrible Jeff Cordon is at trying to beexciting. Look at the is yeah. We Gt a Dan. We get it look at the is we're not gonnaat that boyis going tobe like man. Look at Thatn, it's Gonnabe, like N, he's going to change up the wording,but do enough to relike it's entertaining for everyone. I've heardpeople say: Boyer is too immature to be in a diew fo I come on. Fux booth isliterally the most mature thing ever they just need that little bit ofsweetness just to add it. It would be...

...perfect, it's not going to be betterthan NBC, but it's Goinna. It's Gongnao be close. It's going to be close, it boy, you're, going in is taking thatplace of dw that we needed for facts and no he's not replacing Don. Hereacing no, but he's filling that void. Yeah, yeah dw, is what I don't think.We any of US really realized how Bad Fox was until we lost dw causdw. Ididn't think he was that good until well, he retired and I was kind of likewow. This was like watching paint dry like it just wasn't entertaining it'skind of like watching a Michigan race. I think the only time that I actually heard excitement out ofeither one of them this year out of Mik Joyor Jeff Cordon was Chas Tin, Alagana, no, when they race North Wolksboro, and I racing thatwas Stra la oerwas there. That was Trai of the only time that I like heard,excitement out of both of them. HEU're, both more excited aboutfagracand, then wear azing. Why is that like? What it's sad butlike points out the problem too? At the sametime, yeah yeah, Lso, there's some more news. Idon't know if we were going to talk about this Eric Jones is apparentlyaccording after the race. He said he has a deal going to be finalizedwithin the week or so yeah. I did hear something about thatAso. He isn't gonna. That doesn't mean he's going to be announcing. It no yeah,it's not Gong Na, be anoan somthing finalized, which not, which means hewill oppeh left on the streets, which is good. I mean he's probably topthree for younger drivers. I would say I mean he's obviously behind chaseschasees, just on a whole another level. He could be. What do you want me to say? The man hasnine wins compared to next most, which is for, I think, it's fourh. Unlessyou're NPLAIN NCLUDING Lare Wan Hes con for Larson Seven Ether Ron, oh yeahMarson's got seven yeah, I mean I mean you ar chase righttwo years he was like iint sixteen or she was O thsand nd. Fourteen yeah, you could argue, heres is dog. Going tobe happy, you could argue. Jones is better than Blanin no yoknow. I GNNA do something. I'm Goinnado something right now: He's polling up racing, thefris, point of actualstatsbro but liveinat the part that, like I willactually Jon on Blamy, both of had like really big cruce Lovo Yeah they've hadboth terrible, I think no Chongeis as much worse. Oh, I mean you can't evendeny that red redit kind of screwed over Jones tis season, this ser reck,omat, Pocano and then recked. My Daytona sodefinitely heard him yeah well, yeah literally killd it. Hewas only behind by like twenty. He would have made the playoffs e and heact like a. He didn't have a race winning speed at Pokanom, MEA,obviously didn't harvick and Hanland did, but he had like top ten peed topfive speed. So would have been a good point today, but tyly Reddick, just myabsolute favorite driver, just took him out es a cameraral. No Eric Om roll is my third favoritebehind chse Eli, Joe Legano, obviously know its funny. There's actually guysLi tthere's a slum chance that both of them could make final foragn just ruineverything Thi season, sowas! No, I will cry I legano does.What do you mean Leganos, not lion as a better chance than Shase ellit JesusLitt, lhy Idi I af Nowberi get out of here. Look on ocsn a O, coursethe final.Four races. Don't have any ro courses...

...in Thewhoai literallylerally too goodat Snakin Wer lirally yeah, he's on Kansas, he's seeking almost MilMartinsville he's omone Swe tens, one Texas well not on I almos PS, had heshad said top five piece at Texas yothen. I eharvi winds, Texas, Hamlan, I M N,I'm not going to put all my money on Hamlin. You can't put all your eggs andone baske yeah. I don't know if FAMONE'S gonna win one of these finalFIDALT. I think I think I would make it in all points and then Shuex I'd sayGod I mean he doesn't have Mardesville in the bag, but I could definitely seehim definitely being up there. Having an insane point tat, there's two peoplethat have a shot against TREX, a Barnsville t, the bdoaamlnam Brad, not joey, not joey, jomygojoey's best shot is btcansyou. Goyou have harvick and Hamlon. If Joey, you've Brid, you have tricks, and Imean you could argue chase, but I don't see him like having. I don't seewinning so I mean you could argue chase, that's six drivers right there and Imean Boman encurrge. They could sneak in, they haven't been bad. Bomen's beenthe worst of the AG, but me Bowlin could win know we could bully, could win. Kansashe's been good Ar Kansas. You could s honestly, that's kind of like going tobe an underrated race for him that people are overlooking for him, and Idon't know why, because we saw Kurt finally have success at Las Vegas andpunched his ticket into the round of Eight, so anything at happen. Dexfinityrerace at the roal was a race that seemed to never end and it somehow didin a wild fashion, so pretty much the first like five orso lappse for like a pretty chill and then it started raining and the race would never be the same again. It was a cluster, it was a barn burnerand it was. It was a race that deserved beakin behind the barn shot yeah. Butthat's what makes the roval, especially when it rains robos still overrated. That looks fun in the rain. He betterit better an avinity than I I would not. I would not want to be in that race. Iwould have loved as one of those Lak- U be honest, it looked like they werehaving fun lying around it there once they got used to the wet track. I meanit got pretty good there at the end, they're bottling pretty hard yeah as there wasn't so many radiosthere wasn't so many puddles of water everywhere, it probably would have beentor would have liked it. But since there's too many puddles of water- andhe doesn't like have fun, he didn't like it facts and starts putring teres on no Gregsonleads. He takes off a little bit and then I'Mfifteen, grays and spins, andthen Shar staying those in the top ten arse spins and then the forty sevenspens and then in ninety nine spins and then the sixty one, his the barrier andthe forty one follows in the five follows the fourty four hundred andsixty one and the Screwe tocaution. That was like the turning por in therace. where I feel like was like. Oh, this is going to be like one hell of acrazy race. The M Green, I think, itwas a one lap,shoetout or like one or two EP sheet out for then to stage Caz, Gralla and Ye Abli stage, yesvery underatedroad course preser. I think that if he...

...does not get signed to, like he's,probably Goin to get some to thirty two bats of rumor, if it is not, thenShodeu should have a third car for the recourse the next year. Yeah that'd be a smart move for them,yeah cleares dam move and if he gets a full time, exfinity ride. No one's beentalking about the calling cars, so that was tote, end of stage and Growlo onthe stage and be go on and it hurps is in a top five for some parent resicauseof strategy and he's Vacon, Mith Grex and he's tryingto get past Gregson and I feel like it was like a racing move.People were like oats payback, I feel like. It was kind of like a racing dealthey're, both inexperienced drivers and rain, and especially herps andexprienge driver in the rain, and it's also iinexperienced yeah, O g and thatovals yeah. So he clips he clips screxson andDrexon was into the barrier not a lot of huge damage, but that really killedhis race from oversthat dragson definitely could have won, but that killed his race e. He had trouble going back to the Front Hali had I feellike the car to be at that point. After Grexson got spun and then Haley CrashesAfore, whose fault was what happened? Haley crashes. He takes his car out ofthe race, it was too much damage and and then we move on and we have arestart and on the restart. Harrison Burton is around fifth or around there,fifth or seventh around there, and he goes through the gears, and I think heblew his transmission to something wer around this car sittng sideways in theBille, the racetrank for visibility. Right there yeah yeah right there, youit either went into gear or jumped out of gear or you miss the year. I can'treally tell but definitely some driveline issioes, there jam temp thetransmission and he was in. He was one of the guys thatcame into the race fighting for a plaff spy and he was close, only cut pointsout, but his cars ptaken to the garage. It'sterminal damage of course. So it's not something to you really repar and goout for so that ends the S Twentis chancesearly in the playoffs which which sucks but well go to the didn't. He have awatch name, didn't he have a tall five car. He was running up front. I knowthat yeah he had a topfive car once like we got until, like I longer ron a long UN is like five oRond five Lops, I'm looking. I love look at the caution like because, likeI'm racing references like number oflaps for each green for like runthree three, eight four, three, two, four six onred two unde, two, two twoone: Seven onre ten one, three, two two danlahaps ten laugh es the longestwasthe longest one and like behind that was seven laps and then behind that wassa. It's W stickin yeah. It was like ten EIG, seven six and then it was likethree two. Two Two hunredd three: If it, if you didn't, if you didn't watchexpani race, you misse like a pretty. It was a pretty cool race, but who's a raceist seemed to never end.So yeah fell like a long and then Briso onyeah birth show one stage to everything else like how does he go? I think Brusco prettymuch. I edominates the reat, not dot mones but like he leaves it. It'smostly. Between almondigger and Brusso Brisko leads fifteen street laps fromThedr, sixty fifty...

...and then aminigger takes it. Riskotakes it, and this is like as the race Goese on and then with twoto go or near Tou to go brandon brown crashes and he had h. He was a little bit of along shot. But if someone crashes out that was crashed out beside him, hecould have made the playoffs the next trand o playoffs, which is weird, buthe makes mistake. I think it was just made a mistake: got into the grass offthe corner and it killed this car. We saw a lot of drivers missed the shacanethat day didn't we was that was that the Cud Right Cup race, oh Hel, a twice Harrson Bird, missed ittwiceand. I did see that yeah. It was like. It was like a lake on Thi Donthefront, shacanons Brusco leads the restart and the final restartsurprising as a Fana one, brisk lease Te Fon a restart and going would have turned one in a veryman, ingeran spot an. I spons that many many guys and his pot that many guys made mistakes in to span themselves outin Brasco Jus, going for the wind trying too hard on it, spun out better start for JE brisgill. But herecomes I sixteen again. Ajolman Dinger with a great goes around Meheas, trying too hard. He hit apuddle of water and just spun around Yeah Yeh, Frequently Dude Yeah Yeah. How do it be like tisdy point Wenon Haaii Idi, not like the race lakes everywhere key spins, pretty much giving Almonnigger the win? Iner the gap is Colilinderr. The Sixteen Ajome nigger. Well, witat the Shorto Thin d. There was no caution: AFERTHATONE SCOND Gragson, like we really gre Yeahbabdos. I want to see La Bay in that ninetyeight next season. I want to imagine that ro he could Ren, I would say hewould win. One raise at least dude is frend ti six yeah. What team it? Whatteam does he drive for yeah just go through H, Litt finishers,lebay. Fourth, Ou got over cody ware ricker racing got Sevenh, which is huge,is not a talk. N Ati'm, not even Locati CA. Already irekon already can assumethat one ACJAJ PUFORD and o seven, he he finishes Aith and then Jiffer andheart with eleventh, which is pretty good. Everything was pretty like self exploidTor. I guess I think this. I think the ones to note of the playoff driverswere obviously Brisco, because he spun and then Ryan Ce finished twenty first,I don't know if anything happened to him to something definitely happen:Yeah He', Hes, Po Ne, I think Yeah Welbay actually probably would have wonthat race before he spun in hit the wall and then still finish forth. He'sFunn in hat the long late whole, I remember seen a clip of that yeah and he was like chasing down the leader.He was like in second to how Bou how about Ausin Sin Sindou got race,what hapd what happened to him o race?...

Where was he raised today? Oh, I didn'tsee it guy and a guy that most got that mostpeople look for the win and Dummany therays. He was back end of the top ten all day. Now hewas Topaan. He was barely. He was barely. I don't remember even a pointthat he was batting for the lead or battling upfront. You finish he wasintactaat. Was it yeah? He wasn't very noable at all yeah.He was the addiingern breath Grochou yeah, like all the road courses, itseems like the Ro Fillat Charlottes, like the one road course. He can't bee a factor at like all three years. Yeah. I don't remember him a a lot. Imean he wasn't really insane road course ringer last year, but he waspretty good. I remember that one he won to on one two or three of the wordcourse. Rases last year, I thought he always wantit Atnyeah asdefinitely surprising, to see Sindric struggle most of day, especially especially in the rain. Many people arelike. Oh vrain. Sindric has definitely got someway of an advantage orsomething over the fefield. No, he so struggled yeah. He finished third, bothyears prior Eyou wasn't top to. I knew he wasn'ttop to either one four jares got eliminate the round. Ria ise relesent you riy hip, tried yeah. He was gonna,wait for a whilee. W was Li. U Front on the strategy, even when he was up frontof I stratesy and his like top five. Like he's not weting this, it wasn't even like a thing, mymindwordit's like what, if he wins this an like Oaydo, be silly. Don' think Iwould have showed up to Michael Neeeminated, Michael Nuggets, liminate Branan Brownand hairsone burns problems in the race te pemadoe wich sow sucks. I mean heshould have arguably made their ound o ate over Ryanseek a family team B,tojgr cars to make the roundobate troy. What are your feelings on that? Itwasn't even close to it. Wasn't even yeah. Exactly except the one jgr CarBranndon Jones, Yeh, Ereste elmited, but we're talking about JDR now we'retalking about Ryan Ce beating, tojtr, curs Yeah Harrison Birden is one ofthem. Yeah Go EAD IM in the final for so I had a they don't want wat the other Toiettranti into the payoffs. Now we will decide the final for so uptop is cheese,BRISCO plus thirty, seven he's pretty much a lock unless he chokes, of course, everythingit's two thousand and twenty same with Austin cintric. I feel like he's stilllalk, even H, he's plus twenty seven and then just an allguy or no Gregson,ter, plus ten and plus two not safe at all. They got to work for they gotta.They got to maintain these positions that they have in defend from the darkhorse. Justin Haley, who is mine, is two. Now bull go to cutline and Bernon.John Thos Min is five Russ Chastin, Russia, Stan and Ryan. Seare the ones that I feel like need to win. They can't then yeah on point Rosh.As Tan Mine is fifteen and Rin Se hes minus twenty three. They need. Theyneed to win to get into the font of for they're, too far back to depend onpoints and Racte Ra,...

Rosbe yeah and with everyone thatthey're releasing the racing chase. Brisco an Austin Syndrac we're going tobe consistently up front and probably almost likely make the championship forit's like almost basically confirm that they'll make the championship for howgood they run and everyone else that Chash Tanas to battle is Gregson Jones. Who else is there just nowar Halyi? Don't think I don'tthink Haley will be a factor the SROUND. To be honest, I think he'll vinish, Ithink I'll finish. Maybe six n points I I think he'll be a factor, but he won'tbe like someone like, I feel like Io, like the guysbelow right now. I think Jones is the main guy that Sindri notsit that allGuyn dragson es to really worry about. Defens yeah, like, of course Jones, hastwo in a row nowl at Kansas. He has wer on Texas, he's pretty good amountof hals yeah. I think then, there's at one race there's one race at they andThenn Marensvalar N, no baby ad wile O, let's be honest, go beoni, don't evenstay big wild card s going to be chase BRISCO who wins it? Let's be honest. We all know that J youwant to starty since you're, a guest, yeah, sure, Brisco and sendric are going to be awalk for me, of course, and then I mean old Dae Gregson Hayley Jones trastyand,like those days, are Goingto fig out, but I think gradson and Haley will get in Hal he'skind of dirt cors to me, but I think not alar. No, I think ill go like youmight stradl. You may have a batteries, but I think Drustin Heel ye could getlucky her and move on. It's a really close tetline, so obviously just naly'smost lucky driver. I mean eaexfinity theories: Butyeah, Cristo, Sandred, Gredson andHaley gradson straight FENERX, but we'll see he's got ta get there. First,it's Yeah O get there. Yeah he's gotta Not make any dumb mistakes I'll go nextnow, who's also goet or Kansas Brandon Jones, Branan Jon Wim Pans. If go tothat championship for and then it'll be Sindra con BESCO, I think they're,almost luck and I've been tossing and Turnd I've been losing sleep, O Lhisswho's, going to be the final driver to make the championship for it's almostno contest. It's going to be just nowgar. I think I think Noah Gregsonhe's not a bad driver. I think he's just over aggressn Ho. I think he'lltry to push the issue a little too hard to the point where you maybe make hemistake. Of Rex, Andi'll kill hem just Nayli. If he runs out of luck, which heprobably will I mean no, he won't. He won't run outof look, but I mean it's just Hali unless he winswith the leaders. The top two leaders recking he's not going to win so justNaley won't make it Rosh Jastain. If he had more playoffpoints and bonus points in one racis, I would definitely put them in thechampionship for but with the hole he has. Tho Get through and the driversshe has to beat, I don't see it happening and then Ryans Hague Solf explaind it to worry. No, you Wan Goitg me I gover Crik SindricBrisco as a lot. Our Law Brandon Junes, Ns third driver and then I'm going tohave just an Alguyer and as the fourth drever I think, similar SI. Similar thing iswhat Caden said and I feel like all e guys experiencewill take them. There, yeah entrick, Brisco Jones, easy three, easylocks, honestly, Jonswil ik point his way or he'll winKansas. One of the two. The fourth one...

I think, is honestly a tosso betweenall guy and Chestaing, because I feel like tastane's going to be aggressive,am Martinsville because he's been moretrangling it it's a short track andCasdane's going to play that to his favor all day long, I want to say Augiyer as a junior motor sports fan. If charsane doesn't win the race, allguys, Goinna be n the final for yeah he exactly IIF cast yeah chastene doesn'twin. He has two little bone. How many stage winses he hevean ovous Yeur, likethe doesn't to exactly I mean he's the most consistent driver yeah, but he'sgot two stageents: it's not going to get into the finalfor now ith this point, XAC yeah, if he wins Marnze, yes, he'll be final.Four, if not El Yeah, O Lon yeah, but that's the only way it happening yeah Ishe should have had soshoul. We had into cot yeah, let's, let's move up inTho Cup, so the coper started out in a historicfashion. At first it was the first cuppers in history to use vraintiresduring a race. It was the first cuprays to race nnarin. Since the S and thethe star of the race, it was deemed not dry enough to starton slicks, so everyone started on wet and that set up for a fun a fun couple,starting laps, because one of course everyone does not know what their carscapable of how fast it is. How it handles to most of the field has a tie bit of rain experience, butlike nothing like the Charlot roval, nothing like they're going toexperience and the cup cars and everything it was a very interestingstart, and I think the one key guy that we all will point out is ti going atthe star. I don't know where he started: Dhe drove himself up drove himself upin the first ten laps. I think it was to top five, which was very cool to see I like Ilike under dogs over achieving, especially since it's a team. That'sgoing out same. It was cool to see Tyon when the sage- and I seeChrisopher Bell- be competitive in the first couple of stages, it was cool tosee that happening. Eric Currer, stagewen, yeah sohe, AD e was a her noDagen bur, no bus Bisto. He beato Boyer and, like a photo finish, yeah yeahyeah, it's nice to see that happen,especially Oso that hasn't had that success after the comcaution, which is on likelap ten, everyone came in and kept their wet tires on, but tidoing, Tito and steam, and a couple othersmade a very interesting move that, in the beginning of the Restar n was likethis move does not work out and TI. diling immediately fell back, but aseverything got into it and Tigot Arhythm, he was four seconds faster than theentire field and he move his way up to the front.The long there's a long, warth andstage one and most guys do not know ifthey're rantire, since e checkers getting dryer would hold up to an endto stage as if you don't know, vrain tires on a dry dry surface just killsthem. They just die, really quicky. It's really hard to save them. so Tidon was like easy...

...going through. The fiell. No worriesbunch is carr hooked up, but guys, like boyer boy, was the main one that risked itsince he was leading most of the time tied to him past them and everything,and they were just hanging off for dear life. Until I think John O nemicheckYeah Johna NAMEA check spawn. We got ourweekly Jonanacrosso wekly weekly John honner caution. Backad, remember wheneveryone said it was like the very start of the season. John honer he'sgonna Win Rooki of the year he's running top ten every race, oh my gode, so this set up for a one, Lam shooterto Endin Stage, one where most the Uys pay and we had a lot of risky guys,besides tip dillan who's, leading that stayed out and this this top ten as one no crazy top ten. Besides theguy who's, the only playoff driver to score point on stage one. We hadTidilin Christopher Bo, Mattabedo DETO, William Byron, Timmy, Hiiher Wen on I racing, explain the seventhplaye there, boys good place the DI it fit one to thii. Fifth Yeah, absolutely unit, take over the eighteen after Kyl Bushthis season. How Bush is Frash ow Bush's trash couldn't even make the round of eightrookie numbers o to me. O was Ryan, Newman Blany LEGANOWAS, only pefterstage t get points lacenlage and then Bubba and Air Jones we research steachto- and this is when Stage one was really good. It was entertaining for me, but stage two is when, like thingsstarted like to get in, there's no thing about different tires: there was none of that. It was kind ofjis like a normal roval race. Wasn't many incidents. I can't remember like any like hugepins or anyther guys make a mistakes that Di not bring out of caution. NewOne stays Su Blany, I want to say: Oh Yeah Wi plan is the stage to Biron lads, most of itand then Blany Taktes to lead and leads the rest. I think there was agreeent a checker orsomething to end stage. Ut either way blaming with stage states to willdeserve and then stage three claim boyer takes to lead. He leads bolamp atthe beginning of Stage three and then at bleeny leap back,lead two APS. So we go later in the race Ryan Priest, another team we' that team as a whole,but thirty seventeam is rumored to be shutting down at the end of season, nota Fishi. No, it's not official, but there are rumors that I didn't even hear the o. There won'tbe a thirty seven surprise, Vyne a but Rian priest. Ibelieve he took the lead in a restart and he it wasn't really like. He wasHoldi them holding up a pack if you like, like he, he was holding off. whowas it a Boman, Boman Begano, chees Bush? I think I mean he was stillrunning pretty fast labtimes. I know that he's running I mean I'm prettyfast, he's running decent liveftimes to the point where evhen was still topfive, I mean once he lost the lead. He kind of faded pretty fast, but I meanhe wasn't horribly slow. She lived, he lad, eight laps, which was pretty good.Then booming Bowman took the lead for a little bit and then Shak Sally got thelead and once ches Elli drove up behind...

Boman and pretty much pass them noproblem. I think that's when we noticed this guy is pretty much like thefasistright now and it's going to be hard to beat them now. This late in the Vegus,especially he cauton, comes out. Forget why I wa Te Caution. Br Was it d ASA debri Bri Yeahi was up.There is aajan piece yeah. Oh tyle Bush he's running top five with age car thatis used up. He already had a bad day, but he was O it asrase. He was Ara. I mean I don't think I don't think itwas. It wasn't chased lli level, but if he had the right restar he could haveeasily taken the LEAV top top six call five I'd, TAK top five, but not waiting.No, he didn't know how e, like you never know, came down to a two lapshooto. He would have done anything. would a red chase. It just team decidesto stay out on the cost of Wallliteraly everyone else, pitcs, etdy, petty,petty, petty. I think he expected other people to stay out and go for the win.I don't think he expected everyone to come. downpoint Ou te him in the ass,so hard yeah hat thats, Prett Mell killed this race. We go on the restareand Bush takes the lead, but only for I think two laps before Eric Jones actually passes hm. You want to go to Erok Jonetran. Ithink HEU took the leaf or one lap bing going there junesriht quickly, Catin h. He deserves so much appreciation. Imean he in the equipment he has. He should bewinning races, but if you take a step back and look at what he has done, he'she's been pretty impressive. He's been one of the more impressive youngerdrivers he has. He has no offense, but he has a terrible crew of chief likeone of the worst in the garage- and I mean in like I said in theplayoffs, he has only finished outside the top ten once and that was arichmond. He he won Taladega I'm going to keep saying that because he did wintCallodag Wehe finished like top ten vegas, he he finished third at Bristoland he was actually catching the leaders coming down to the last couplelaps. He finished. Third here, which is insant, he's finished well at everytrack, but I'm not going to Bash Kylerson, butif Hendrick is looking at Larson more than they're looking at Jones. If itcomes down to money, I would say maybe Larson, but I think talonwise EricJones is arcuably as good as lawison. WAERSON has been slow, two thousand andeighteen sucks for Larson. He had speed, but he sucked for Larson and everyone'sgoing to go to the old Kyle. Arson has terrible equipment, no CGRIS, prettygood cirt Bush mad. The round of a the Zout case closed. So I mean that's whatI say. I think Eric Jones needs a lot more appreciation and he needs a lot more appreciate.Adagion, because he's going to go to that Ety e that was so CRINC rigt there,the you're so woth Ho Bawereon on to led one appen, then chase, took lead.Lo led the last laps chase, basically Serin Hi. How are you I'm Goinna? GoWin this now, okay, bathat's about what happened? It's all thatsened? U Spinning, Aunstand, Deling Austin Don, wasn't gonna like be Ainan,anathing or GETTIG. A good finish still sucks for, like his is playoffs howgood they've been just to go out like that. Getting caught up the NBC set a statthat like kind of blew on mine and it kind of shows Donas road cureers razor.His best finish on road course in the...

...entire career is fifteen, which is which is really creative. So chief one,it was as a fourth roacourse Wenin te row after walkingtsce last year, Rovellast year, this years they toned Te road course and finally, the roval four road course winds in a road chase.Elli, it's Goin NA. Do it again at the robe this year, so that ties them with Jeff Worgan Wich.If corna still has the six in a row, Rom Ninety seven to two thousand onVord courses, so she's got Ta work a little bit next year, especially thecircuit, the Americas. I kinof, like Rantabokie, quick. After all thehighlights, I saw gay Branon Batim, he five ament allright Cao Bush. This weekend, man's dude was bouncing off of everyone, theentire damn race, like I don't remember which restartit was,but I know he hit bound off four different guys and then he completelyannihilates Lnot a Nias. He just runs into the back of Osto doling like Shu,like he didn't even try to not watch from I do going into this race. He was goingto have a bad race and he just backed it up with his performance like it wasjust. It was sad, but at the same time just horrible to watch did we mention howCHREX and curd spun on the final out I awas getting so happy. I'm like yeah,another third place, Fanebertru and then the camera points a truex and he'sspinning around with crew boys. I'm like Oh so Duram trix is intervew. PreMuch said that like cur and him Er side by side and Chrex Tougt, I think thet curvd,backout or something and once they entered or we're going into the DISHUKIN. He noticed that, like H,he wasn't going to make it. The twoof hem were going to make it and thik liketry to back out him and stuff like that, but it was too late and cur and Shrekspuwn curd still maintained. Fourth, but churks for back to seven seven. The four drivers wereeliminated after this race, most notable everyone has heard it Kylo Bushto finish. Seris cheapion, eliminate from the playoffs along with AustinDillon climbrerer, was closed. The last power steering with like thirty five togo and he drove his butt off the top ten, but he had a winning. He had awinning car and it's hard breaking for him, but he eliminated an Eric Omarole team withthe team even said it that the Rena twelve, the the way I was setup with how the races were that the team was going to struggle and if theycould just make it Pastd ahround of twelve, very unlikely, but if theycould just make it past and like the rind of Eight, would be like verystrong for him either way Eric got eliminated, which is pretty much pepredictable. Sothat leaves eight drivers and I hate the playoffs youall know that, but theround Ofe, I love it, because it's no, it's no bs like like Austin, do andadvancing that wasn't bs, but like there's, no like drivers that didnothing all season and are now in it the round of a ar the best all season,the ones who have worked their bought off the ones who have raced their way into this. Pretty muchthey're, not competing forn fin O for spots. It's really close, no matter the points difference countnobody out, so Kevin Harvick, pretty much a walk. Everyone knows that youknow...

Texas, he's one the last to four racesthere, two or three fo three, two twoutoand Ninete theny, eighteen and wothosand and seventeen wasn't two thousand and eighteen ancumbered,though yeah, but he still got the wind because that still got the wind thatwas before the Rod, DQ right, Martinsville Barntlatro earlethi season.But I mean it's not going to hurt him huge. If he'd like get stopped fifteenthere, where the Kansas Um Kansas, of course, moand half, he coulddo Berly Goll there Denny Hamling, you won Kansas or thisyear, I'm pretty sure yeah and he won canses to fall KansasRS last year, two and then Martinsville he's really goodthere and then Texas, again pretty good there wowon Texas, aear this year was Ha Hama.Delan Haran made this round of a. He wouldhave definitely made that championship por. He would have won Texas, okay, it's so Haus Shit, oneveryone, so arvick is plus forty. Five and Dennyis plus thirty. Two. We learned that whatever happens, then you can start choking easily likelast year. He saved himself by winning Phoenix Yeah. So third isBrad. Kislasi Becang go over it. He he's really good at Martinsville. He'sbeen really good. there. Recently, Texas he's been decent at Kansas. Hewon that last year, with the same package, Doyou do good. There he's,plus thirteen pretty good cushion, but not huge,definitely no mistakes. She sely is were thansgeting reallyclose. That fourth spothe's got to play. Really Good Defense Si through here now. He said top IGE speed at Texas at point.He has he's, had winnig spee and almost one afewgers TAT martinsiof course and Kansas ye almost on last year and well,you almost Wen both Erss last year, honestl, he won O thsand and eighteen yeah you want to as an I keepforgetting when she was eighteen, so he's plus five. Without a doubt he is not safe. He'sgotta. Definitely like beyon his game Joey. The GANO is one to watch out foryou never know when he's going to going to get hot late in to season. So Kansas is pretty good at it. With the fake package he's likepretty good, there, marins fell, he's he's top five rare and Texas. He isninbad there either. So she is minus FY blue to cutline and threx on back iswhere points are really useful, but also awin is not recommended, but it's the easy wayit's in way. Easier way did in so triks is mine. Is Ten he's good at allthree tracks. You ont one to Marins vef course: OAER THI season he's one atKansas before and Hes said a couple close one to Texasthat he's almost one Alex Bonwin's minus nineteen mineis eighteen mar bedhe yeah thes thinin did I don't bout a die to so Alex Boman is mine is eighteen. Ifeel like he's in a zone where he's gonna win. It he's got NA win a race.If he wants to mate to the fund o four and I honestly don't think hewould becapable, I don't think he's like incapablewinning, but it's very unlikely e Fino Watch him go win Kansas this weekend,I'm not ciunting Goin, Tis, Texas and...

Mar swis around he siy know he's gonnawin the next four races and Rrin the whole entire see now e'll win the nextthree and then finish. Fourth in the championship, sandings like Dno HaFifteo, something like thatactuall almost won there. I two THOUSADandsixteen yeah, this first race, our Mani got this Shys letsped Geni Kansas, didn't e wason Kansas, ithin yeah thousndand nineten. Second, last year, yeah yeah,he almost one N. twenty last day right, you went like sis less to go like threein a row Texas. I remember hat top ten speed last year in Texas and spin race, Martins Bo he's a pretty good short rek.Racer butthese tracks definitely are not like his greatest, but it can makes o fun of four Phoenixis one of whois better tracks, so don't count them out Phoenix if he makes itwhich is kind of likely and cirt Bush. He got into the round of eight with thewin and M, not saying like he shouldn't be ther enevy, but he has not madeenough points. Of course, he's not been that strong as o everyone else, so heahe enters the round of a my iness twenty one, which s pretty much a wind zone unlessa lot of people a lot of guys struggle where he just breaks out somehow winsit. A Lot t e she's hes in it wel he's gotta Win Pretty Much. Dowe've an talk about big fomer yeah? Let's do gointo go race, Ye give efannel for all right follow for Harva Camon. Imean Decan't tall em out unless they reck all through races or somethingdumb happens, but Parvic Camblin and then I think, Brad think he gets in third and Elliot willtake that forh spot so raise they are right. Now, I think, is how ill end upbeing trasn elliot good, all three tracks. I think Ho'll events easily,whether you wins or on points. I think you'll have a good run and then his Lov teeth he's good at Martins,Ville and he's decent at those Milei House so and then hamlet and heartdik. There Gidit except Harvick, isn'N, Drat, Martins vill, but harvick he's drope such a bid.Point trition that I think he's easily in so those are Mokay I' go next, so harve GT, Denny Hanlin. I don't thinkI'm theing, you explain those tere pret Mu, locked in there and then finanty spots bracthis lastyear. Think Hi's going to make it he's good all through the tracks andnee he's going to make it margin, stricks Junioris, going to bethe fourth spot. I feel like that, he's good all through the tracks Ta. I thinkI'll just hit something where he'll be ahead of cheese and Thegao andeveryone else welaccept the topto. Of course. Chris. You want to go yeah sure all right, I'm going to pleace both ofyou tob, I'm going to put Harvick Eliott correct rule. Originally I had Hamlin in, but man's is a choke job waiting tohappen. Brand's going to make the final for bold prediction, Wowwell Chris, take a Haryou are firstfolks ar you, but no you're bout. Toher Tim. I don't think ANA makes the finalforce T's. I don't it. I think harvick makes the Championture,for, I think, that's Easyi, think trux...

...wins one of the races, a whether it beKansas, Texas, Ormernsville Olnow. I think Kazloski makes it and I thinkthis finals ball will be between Hamlin, Legano and chase. I was originally going to say Leganobecause I know how Legama is he's quiet, but he can sneak him like last year. Noone saw him making the championship wor an all of a sudden he's there. He wasgoing to make until Denny anma one and he fell back to like twentieth inthe final race, but so I was going to go Legana Hamlon, I totally would he has so madybonus points that he could physically just not have acouple good races, but still maybe make it in by a couple but, like I've, said before, don't put allyour eggs into one basket. I don't like Jhase Elliott, but if I'm beingcompletely honest, I see him making that final for over dunny Han onemeacor something exactly eglish. I don't the handle making that final fo like it. I want him to win thechampionship. I really do I like him. He deserves a championship, but histeam, just the cookie crumbles. When it's not the right time. I think hedoesn't make the final for and curt curt. That's pretty self explaina ToryBoeman won't make it Legano. I don't think he'll make it, but he'll have ashot. Definitely Himan him and chase will be separated by like four points:Oh Yeah Yeah Ye. That's what it's going to come down to thats it. I thought I GIV me the lone will Idon't see Han making it Ounwagonna Othyeah and what and once you startedtalking about, I like wow, I'm really bout to sa the exactsame list Fik for Kansas who's, gonna Wem, hegonna Wain Jay. You start wee going to need JacanMor than just tid yeah stough. It's definitely touhgids. A lot of theseguys could win in the package and the package. Of course, the biggestwildgard I don't know, I think, probably Hamlin.He won there in the spring and he's it's either him or Harvic in thispockag or the time. So I think Amwon gets it done this weekon Troy, O who's, gonna win, I'm going to say, Alex Bomer, you didn't have o make oungerchampionship for the first time the whole playoffs I'm going to go with thenon playoff driver, winning the race. I think pick Eric Jones. I think I think he's had so muchmomento and this isn't me picking him purely for the wind. This is me pickinghim, because I think he has the momentum to back him up where he has econfeience A. I think he can win. I mean he's been, I remember spring racelast year he finished like third and he had a race, Winni car, all race, and itwas just I know, he's good there. I just want to see him break through andget that win. I'm going to take tricks. I just mile and a half package finish the there earlier this year.Yeah I just he's gonna Stup, he's gonna, bethis Guy Sark Denny Hanon end it now, I'm gn a my celloe Dunny Hamblet, I'mgonna agre, I'm Gonto agree with you. I think Danny Hanlin just does not hit eright. There's always that one race that he just decides. You know what Ihaven't spun in Twenty eight races. Let's just do it now and that'll be theSEIES Jorelly go. I know I just see him. Ijust seem just being off Alit Jak who you got. Oh Man, I don't know cowbush he's notvery goad chances. He did well in the...

...spring, but he's normally not very goodand now he's got nothing to Hese. Mans is going to wreck trying to win therace. No progans Gona Reck Denny Hamlin. I would lose it if that happens. We'd have to come back. This clip theclip of you and I saying that am let's GOINGTO suck. That's the intro to thenext episode. Yeh Dnyeah, if Danny Han went, add so muchas miss finishing top ten. I want the answer to be Danny Hamlen's going to suck ythat's it.
